**From Tavarus**
To: Eyenet ID; Fixer

Sorry for the late reply something keeps on actively interfering my contact with you.

I am assuming the threat level is high and they used a descriptor of "reconnaissance in force" and I know i am not on their pick list for extreme measures. All i know if that a one of our watch dogs picked up a month ago a troubling post on a dating site and it had coordinates for someplace in the TQZ and some asteroid. had this weird group mind think going on. not sure why its taken this long to scramble a team together but consider the normal channels are being shut down i would judge a competitor is at work. I'll be touching down in olympus in three days and we need to move out then. I am not usually in this neck of woods and my maps are not that good. about how deep into the TQZ is the Nicholson crater? god i just hope it is a new off shoot of those freaky hive mind folks.

EDIT OOC: full write ups for Tavarus Excavar coming tomorrow. for now see Seeker of Thoth for a few details. SoT is now set in the future of this thread

Turing We need Wei. Urgent deployment and need the following supplies:
* 2 Large Thermobarric bombs
*16lbs of High Explosive
*Assorted Small arms
* 3 or so more personnel. Need a demolitions expert among them. do not need to be vetted just competent but vetted is prefered
* 2 Humvee half tracks you know the ones Tav likes. If you can get some dorsal mounted HMGs on them it would be a plus
* light and medium body armor as preferred and chameleon cloaks

Sorry to drop this at short notice but the usual avenue's are not responding

Requisition

#The Eye Login: Fixer#

I have most of these items in stock, the thermobaric bomb will be harder to acquire , but not impossible, what I do not have can be found and/or modified to fit the mission parameter. Do you require a Morph yourself?

I have contacted fellow sentinel Haze, he should have all the expertise you require. I've also resleeved into my operation morph and will be lending a hand. I'm looking for more sentinels, if nothing pans out, I can get some hired help. Not cleared with the Org, but I can vouch for their efficiency and discretion. If it is too juicy, I can pay their memory edit fee.

I have tridimensional maps of a good deal of the areas, that I took on my last excursion to the place. If I recall correctly, Nicholson crater is smack in the middle of the TQZ, we're talking very close to the white zone. And it's quite a trek from Olympus; 2000kms or so.

(Took some time to check, reference real life map, EP's map and do some rough calculations.)

information control

TO: EyeNet ID: Fixer

the missions specs with the thermobaric just said it had to be man portable and that the grenades would be too inefficient. Not sure if i care for this proxy he is just giving me enough specifics but their are large gaps and i believe its intentional. either they do not think me cleared for it or they do not know themselves and won't speculate. Not sure whether them withholding info is scarier than them not knowing.

I am in a pretty standard Theseus right now. I have not had much time to customize it yet apart from some medichines. Like i said i am making planetfall in olympus in a few days, hope customs let's my sidearm through since its a brand new design. I have a few extra in the shipment i was planning on delivering to the rangers. was planning on having them be demonstration models to get some new business. they are built for standard humanoids though any conflicts?

Ouch that is a bit far off is there a better launch of point you could suggest?

OOC: damn these maps are terrible at account in for scale and i have nice map in the dating thread but correlating it to the ps+ provided one is difficult. guess i may have to revise a few things in Seeker of Thoth. Also figured out an eyenet ID, ObsidianForge. so from here use that on wide area mesh communication but once present in person Tavarus or Tav will do since it will be verbal or peer to peer

@Tavarus

Well, Thermobaric weapons aren't the best on Mars, Air pressure and low oxygen saturation lowers their efficiency, and high altitude or sandstorms make them outright worthless. I can get us something that should do the job well enough.

I'll refrain from speculating, but Proxies tend to be vague with new inductees, they're wary of people who haven't had their mettle tested. Is this your first op in the TQZ?

Also, I'm sorry to say, but I think you've got scammed on that Morph, Theseus come standard with medichines. You might want to get the germ line checked to make sure they gave you the real deal, some groups are only bound to give something 'within specs' rather than the real deal. Happened to me in Extropia once. As for illegal body shops, it's all on the honor system, really.

As for the Customs, I can arrange that, I have a contact who work there and get some some stuff past without usual quarantines or without papers.

As for launch, unless we get some air drop in the middle of the cooler spot of the TQZ, it's pretty much the same distance from Pathfinder City, whatever we'd save in term of time would be wasted moving between Olympus and PFC.

((To do the calculation, it was rather loose but I used Olympus' diameter as an indication (624km IE about the size of france) and saw it fit about 3 to 4 times in the space between it and the crater, which you can see in the link below. Since it's at the equator, the distances shouldn't be too deformed, so between 1800 and 2500 Kilometers)) http://tools.wmflabs.org/geohack/geohack.php?pagename=Nicholson_%28Martian_crater%29&params=0.2_N_164.6_W_globe:Mars_type:landmark

over analyzation

**Messaget to Eyenet ID: Fixer**

First time on mars at all unless you count an orbital layover when i moved rimward a while ago.I've heard strange and fascinating things about the TQZ though.

I'll keep that in mind about the morph. it seems everything was in order except that part and I doubt Gatekeeper is going to be forthcoming on the prospect.

the crate has all the necessary paperwork just my personal one lacks documentation. I kinda forgot that detail out here its been to long and i just got accustomed to having one on my hip at all times

Air drop? that's an interesting idea but harder to cover up. I know a little bit about the surface to air batteries around the zone.... they are tenacious weapons if they are triggered. we might be able to do an airlift to near one of the ranger stations where some of my crates are headed deliver them and make in roads from there.

It should also provide a decent cover from the competition. Still uneasy about that its been a couple months since the report was filed and they are only now getting a team together.

Specialization? that's another thing puzzling me. I am and arms and armor designer by trade and can use them with reasonable proficiency I am not frontline infantry or detective or hacker not a bad leader though. My guess is I am just the first they were able to get through to given the communication disruption. I guess they got through to me because i am not normally part of the martian channels.

**Amara to Turing** How secure is connection. I know the light speed lags gives some insulation against intercept

**Amara to Tavarus** No use in being confused about it. You were put on this because you were needed and since you are good at putting things back together. the fact you could get a hold of Fix from the briefing sheet shows the disruption is between the proxies and sentinels.

You're right Sis i need to stop over thinking things. good thing i declined that menton a while back. I'd think myself into paralysis

**back to fixer** I guess my best specialty at the moment is being unknown and outside the normal chain of command

Security

@Anara
We are using a brand new encryption key for this operation, as is usual by Fix's protocol for Firewall ops. With the usage of Quantum computer, estimated illegal decryption time is one week. Any data that could be intercepted will only be readable by the end of the operation.

@Tavarus

The big problem will be when we reach the crater, I don't think the trucks will be able to follow us. So we'll probably have to go down in rappel.

You can be lead then. You got basic combat training, right? I am personally outfitted for scouting and hacking duties. Haze handles covert op, sabotage and demolition normally. We should see if there's a nanotech specialist available.
#Fixer's gargoyle morph specs embedded. Download? [Y/N]

As for the gear, I've retrieved the following from my caches. The Org is going to owe me big time for this. The Rovers are currently being outfitted and armored for the excursion.

[Tav to Fixer] *whistles* wow you really pull out all the stops. I wonder why they have not taken a more active role against you

[Amara to Tav] Umm you really should take a look at that gargoyle. part from the general form factor its hardly recognizable...

[Tav to Amara] God damn. might have to incorporate some of this into the buster we're working on for the titanians

[Tav to Fixer] You have some serius heavy firepower my friend i take it business is fairly lucrative down there. this could have interesting possibilities down the line...

Looks like the pilot has finally hit the decel thrusters. probably a day and half until we're docked. Damn scum like to push their equipment hard.

[Amara to Fixer and Tav] I may have a line on getting you closer to the TQZ before we have to get on foot. The company currently has crate of our guns slotted for a ranger post on the border. And maybe we can get another 200km inward if we go from there to contract 17.

@Tavaru

I keep a decent amount of equipment in storage. Sometimes people needs things ASAP and I can't get to my contacts in time. Naturally, I put a sizable markup on the gears. It also help when firewall is preparing a martian ops. Plus my revenue is about a million credit a year, although most of it is reinvested, so I end up working as a supplier rather often.

I forgot about the Gagrgoyle, I've built it as an open source model and most things on it aren't illegal in most habitats. It's why the weapon mount comes empty, but it's made as to be able to adapt a slightly modified handgun or micro submachine gun.

The shipment is good news, if any papers are missing, I can get them for us with my contacts. Also, I've finished modifying the buggies. Armored, camouflaged and radar absorbent. Expensive, yes, but it'll help us quite a lot. The biggest giveaway will be sand getting tossed up, but if we don't go too fast, it'll be manageable.

Message from Turing

#Turing
@Tavarus

I would like to advise you that you may in fact speak to Fix directly for any matters. Fix prefers to handle his own schedule and dealings. I am mostly his assistant in term of signal intelligence, economic matters and handling mesh information searches.

Fix handles the human and hardware elements of our joint business.

Also, I would like to advise you that AR displays are available to help guide you if you need them finding your way. If this is a consistent issue you have, you may wish to invest in mental modification as to better allow location in tri-dimensional planes and memory augmentation.

Questions

((No problem, mate. It's understandable))

Fixer stared at the AR screen, jumping from one spime's view to the next. Following someone using the ubiquitous surveillance of modern life was something he'd gotten rather adept at, even when it came to following high-speed objects. Then the missile came into the picture.

[They are becoming bold.] Turing commented.

[Or desperate.] Fixer muttered aloud, surprised.

[Shall I find the source of the attack, Fix?]

[Yes, if it's a shell, brick it.] He answered, well confident of Turing's hacking abilities.

Fixer's attention shifted elsewhere, the multi-tasking implant letting him process larger quantities of information. Simultaneously, he jammed into the Olympus security grid, deploying drones using an old back door left in the system just as he checked every criminal dark cast he had access to.

"This is too unprofessional compared to Ozma usual MO." He thought. "Rather than coordinated attacks, we're dealing with several isolated attacks. Well informed, but organization seems lackluster, they have the strength to null communication between sentinels but field ops were weak or used elsewhere. Could simply be a distraction, keep us occupied as they accomplish an other objective and main force is standing at Nicholson Crater. If the enemy lacks field operatives, they could have set up a dead pool and let independents take shots at us."

Fixer had a lot of question, but very few answers...

I'm currently too far to act in person, but I have however deployed police drones to your location with a hacked IFF. They should be there in approximately 160 seconds. Turing and I are locating the attackers, with luck, they will be using shell which Turing and I can scorch remotely. If not, we will draw their fire with drones until you escape. A replacement vehicle is currently underway to your location.

"If this keeps up, Firewall is going to bankrupt me." Fixer lamented out loud as he activated a spare flying car to pick up Tavarus.

[Perhaps you should have elected for premium insurances.]

[I sincerely doubt think they cover being hit by a missile.]

[Should we request backup from Sentinel Haze?]

[Negative, it would take too long.]

[As you wish, Fixer.]

Turing went quiet for a moment and Wei focused his full attention on the entoptic displays, searching through every hints shady dealings and black ops happening on Mars. Nothing went unnoticed, all he had to do was find the correct clues...

[Target acquired.] Turing declared.

You find a party of 3. 2

You find a party of 3. 2 Remades and a Flexbot. The flexbot is most unusuall since since its modules seem to be configured into highly portable SAM launcher. The Bot appears to have 2 missiles left. The remades appear to be hastily making preparations to leave the area as the flexbot is undeploying itself into a more mobile form. There is no direct Line of Sight from here to Tavarus but you can see the smoke from the wreckage rising in the distance. The building they're on is fairly low level and on the outskirts. it shows all the signs of hastily prepared position. The remades are carrying automatic riffles with silencers. you notice though that they seem to be missing a magazine or two.

Fixer's mind split many ways, his implants letting him jam into a eight of drones simultaneously. He split them into two teams. The first split up and headed toward the flexbot, intent on drawing it's fire by spraying fire onto it and if need be, intercept the missiles with their body, not quite confident to be able to scratch damage it significantly, instead Fixer trusted in Turing's abilities to scorch the ego within. The rest he set to focus fire entirely on one of the Remade, in the back, hidden behind cover, he kept the forensics drone he'd deployed, ready to attempt harvest one of the attacker's stack for a later interrogation.

The hostile fire team is is making its move to head out. Most likely they will be exfiltrating the area rather than confirming the kill at the crash site due to the heavy population.

The flexbot systems spasm while the go within struggles with turing's cyber assault. One of the missiles fires off unexpectedly toward the groups general direction.

As soon as the Remade hit the ground, Fixer redirects the forensics drone to extract the fallen man's cortical stacks, he redirects the other drones onto the Flexbot for a concentrated assault on it's missile launchers, save one which he sends on the trail of the last member of the team.

The forensic drone turns over the remade to get at the stack and finds a small hole with foaming fluid oozing out. The unit extracts the partial remains of the stack. the interface appears to be in usable condition.

The errant missile slams into a drone and pinning it into the wall but does not detonate.

The flexbot lets out a mangled whine and pops, somewhere between a dial up modem and a cat being tortured, through its voice synthesizers before detonating its remaining missile within its housing

The remade has bolted back inside the building. He will probably be making his way to street level.

((Well, you're the game

((Well, you're the game master, kind of, and this is eclipse phase, fair isn't really part of the setting. Hell, I was expecting the drones to be a distraction and an annoyance more than a threat.))

Fixer looked satisfied at the drone's result, better than he had expected. When the last man entered the building, he dismissed the combat drones, having them resume their duties and initiating a log wiping script while the Forensic drone moved to deliver it's package to a drop point, away from prying eyes.

Simulation

The Fixer gargoyle plugged the cortical stack he'd retrieved within the mainframe, booting up the Purgatory virtual reality simulation. He waited for a minute, in the sim an hour would have passed. Then he entered the VR.

The simulation was nothing but one giant black hole, programmed to feel cold and hard to breathe, the prisoners left incapable of moving but fully conscious.

"Cooperation will be rewarded. Antagonism will be punished. There are currently three instance of your yourself within this simulation. Any contradiction in information will be punished. At the end of the simulation, the two most cooperative instance will be deleted. The third will be sold to ego traders. Do you understand these terms?" He announced in a neutral, synthesized voice.

[After an answer, he will ask for Name and Affiliation, then who hired them and what where they briefed about. If the prisoner refuse to answer he will be left to wait for six hours. Every refusal is met with an increase in isolation time. The process works for all three of the man's instances whom aren't able to communicate. Also, In case any information, recordings or XP were within the man's mesh, Fix will try to break into it. -- The goal of the simulation is to induce stress related to sensory deprivation, isolation and claustrophobia rather than directly torture.]

The residual self image of the man is a patchwork of colors. Faces and skin tones of morphs past flash and fight or dominance over a vacant grimace.

Upon being addressed it turns its attention towards fixer. A sadness can be seen deep within his monochrome eyes. Upon attempting to speak the odd word leaks through a cacophony of corruption. "Mother", "Corp" "Registration number-A453-BH" After a bit of more concentration a name emerges, Armity Stetson.
