Jenkins is going to hand control of the facility back to Colonel Islay once he seems fit, and call you all to meet in a local pub - in a dark zone. Colonel Islay reports that the fresh line of fibre that was run down the pipe is somehow still not working for internet access. They are establishing some jerry-rigged comms to outside though. Should be talking to head office within the hour.
Jenkins pulls pints from behind the dark, empty bar while Jade's Clanks monitor the area. They stay offline, keeping this meeting private. Red notes that a few hours before the currrencies of the world were in free fall - even the US Dollar and Chinese Yuan, though they were not nearly as hard hit. The Ƀ320 they found in the secret armoury (32 sticks @ Ƀ10 each) represented $320M CAD before the crash. When Red and Deke were on the surface those Ƀ320 were already worth nearly $1B CAD. Grace notes that they should likely spend their dollars before they spend the bitcoins.
Storm notes that the current priority is staying alive long enough for Ellen to be a threat again.
Miranda indicates that she has access to a lot of coin through the DQE, and that the DQE could also offer some sanctuary - or at least assistance.
Grace comes up with an interim solution for Ellen's mind control powers: noise cancelling headphones that have a secure channel among the team. There are downsides, but it's a first step.
Miranda believes Ellen is going to regroup and gather forces to come after them.
After some consideration of using the 'Magic Cloth' to get up the pipe to the surface, Jenkins suggests you just ship yourselves out as cargo in standard shipping containers. Mislabel the contents as personal effects of the evacuated personnel and slip under everyone's radar.
Miranda notes that she can gain access to the internet now. This is a surprise to Jenkins and the others.
MIranda suggests faking their deaths, perhaps by setting off the third nuke when they're leaving.
Storm says that a line to the outside now means she can stay behind without burning her cover. She can contact the PD and Genetek to take you all in. She can also work with Jenkins to show the MITOs going into a dark area after Ellen and never coming out again.
To Do List
- Scan each of the party for tracking devices and other monitoring equipment.
- Determine where to ship themselves, and under whose protection.
- Steal a very high tech stealth cargo plane with docked Quinjets.
