Journal Entries

  • Tier 1: According to the note, the Parabolic Resonance Occult Detector can be used to pinpoint any occult signatures in a particular area. Using the devices correctly could therefore lead to the artifact the researchers were looking for. Once you have found the spot, use the shovel to dig up the item.

    • Use the P.R.O.D. to find the artifact

We are currently undergoing a transformation. Old scales are being shed, new claws being added. The hundreds of connected are all switching seats.

In the course of the current shift, no one is available to take your call. However, it has been logged. Its significance will be figured into the updated models.

Please note that today's automatism is not permanent. Nothing ever is.

If you are in dire need of directions: ask Templar, do the opposite.


Your field report has been received and is currently being analysed and evaluated. Thank you for your contribution. We will contact you if more information is needed. A reward and cash bonus has been credited to your account.

You are among my highest priorities, but I'm afraid I shall be tied up in meetings with the Marshals all afternoon. If the subject of sterling new recruits should come up, know that i always endeavour to mention our finest.

In the meantime, a word of advice: jot things down. Believe me, I have learned this lesson the hard way.
