INCIDENT REPORT #001;
DATE: OCT 27, 0215.12
Our team arrived at the Japanese target zone 2 hours before the expected event start. On route we made contact with the Vatican Team, working a parallel investigation at their expected target zone in Italy.
As we neared the landing site, or resident psychic detected a number of powerful minds scattered across the globe, one of them at or near the target location. He detected a total of 21 (Siri, please check mission logs for verification and accuracy) minds. He reacted violently to contact with these minds, and had to be restrained for a duration.
Once we had landed, he was however able to point out the source as coming from a nearby fishing village. Investigation of this village revealed:
- A number of human bodies, emanating high levels of radiation.
- An underground tunnel from the building containing the bodies, to a spherical room filled half way with sand.
- Excavation revealed a number of crystals buried within the sand.
- Any attempt to damage the interior shell of the sphere was met with failure. Removing the crystals was not a problem, removing the sand was nearly impossible.
Near the end of our 2 hour grace period before event start, Mr. Bobo attempted contact with the mental entity he detected in the area. He was this time, able to remain mostly in control and found that the minor crystals are a decoy. His testimony may be suspect as it is unknown what effect contact with the entity had on him.
Returning to the surface, we where attacked by a weapon consisting of high energy particles teleported directly to a target area. LEGIONS arm was destroyed in one of the first attacks, and he was forced to temporarily withdraw.
Through the activity of other team members still at the site, a large ship was discovered hiding in the cloud cover over the area. Castilean began a frontal attack on it. While it was revealed and dealing with the other team members, LEGION was able to teleport to the top of its hull, and through an adjustment in the Mage Drive, shut down teleportation anywhere in the vicinity. With their primary weapon disabled, the ship deployed drones to engage the team in combat. Additionally, it attempted to shake LEGION of its hull through inertial force, and though failing to do so, it did essentially remove him from an active roll in combat.
Additionally, a number of hacks into LEGIONS systems was attempted, and the communications hardware had to be destroyed.
Castilean and Mr. Bobo managed to rend a large hole in the ships side, though they where unable to make use of it. Mr. Bobo was required to assist with dispatching the drones, and Castilean was called away to deal with a Nuke launched at the target area by China, in addition to another nuke launched at China by the U.S.A.
Sparrow alone infiltrated the interior of the ship, and made contact with the creature operating it. Details are uncertain, but though some sort of mental power, the creature took control of her and forced her to leave the ship, subsequently attempt to attack other team members.
During combat, the droned emited high energy readings, and the time schedule of the event increased drastically from what had been observed before. Once all the drones where dealt with, the ship halted its spinning, and an escape pod was launched. Interception was impossible at the time.
It quickly became evident the event had NOT been aborted. The ship itself crashed into the target area, and most of its hull disintegrated. The team managed to safely evacuate the area before the final phase of the event occurred.
There were no causalities on the team, and no civilians were killed during the teams presence.
Some equipment was salvaged form the ship after its crash.
The Italian location recorded a matched increase in event timeline equal to the Japan location, and both events finalized at the same time.
Discovering the use of advanced teleportation abilities by the creatures responsible for these events, brings up the possibility that the affected areas and their populations are not destroyed, but merely moved elsewhere.
The use of mind control techniques is worrying, we do not know the full extent, duration, or range.
With the loss of the Japan and Italy locations, we do not know where the next events will occur, meaning we cannot be at the location ahead of time. This relegates our abilities once on site to attempt destruction and/or capture of the vessel and its occupants.
America, England, Canada, Mexico, South Africa, Bolivia, Czech, Bangladesh, China, and Japan all closed borders and and restricted airspace at exactly the same time. A number of those countries had not been hit yet at the time, but all are on the list. Someone in our government knows something.
- All military personnel sweeping for activity should be equipped with Geiger counters to detect localized use of the creatures radiation weapon.
- Due to the presence of mind control effects, and the involvement of high level conspiracy theories, it may be beneficial to have important military personnel and field personnel equipped with ‘tinfoil hats’.
- Should an event occur on the ground of the Czech Republic, the military should focus its attempts on taking down the enemy craft, and especially destroying or capturing the escape craft.
- Until we know more about the mind control effects, all military personnel should have orders to kill on sight.
- Due to the hacking ability of the creatures, any computerized equipment should either be isolated from any network interactivity, or its use avoided. Only dumb missiles should be used when engaging.
