Classified Leak: IQTech Ultra Strike Monitoring
This came my way just a few moments ago, I suspect it’s real-time or near-real-time intel.
It seems that either Jahan or the Acolyte may have sent some ripples through the Portal Network as they continue their research into the so-called ‘Obsidian Shield’ technology. These ripples seem to have had an impact on Ultra Strike XMPs, which are now showing ‘heightened attack capabilities.’
What would be interesting to keep an eye on is whether or not this is a pattern. We know that Jahan and the Acolyte are driven and highly motivated. I wouldn’t be surprised if the is the only ripple they cause as they pursue the Obsidian Shield…a1b1a5b1a2a1a2a1a2b2c1a1a3b1a1b2a2a1a2b1e1a4a1b4e1b3b1b
Let me know if the comments if you can provide confirmation on this intel from the field.
Here’s a transcript of the conversation:
Surveillance Target: IQTech Network Targeted Scan
Present: Lorazon, Avril (Acting CEO, IQTech Research)
Unknown Engineer (XM Development, IQTech Research)
E-Int Form: COMINT Surveillance Audio
LORAZON: Explain exactly what happened.
ENGINEER: We noticed this just moments ago. Ultra Strike XMPs seem to be exhibiting heightened attack capabilities.
LORAZON: Interesting. What’s the cause?
ENGINEER: As much as we’d like to take credit for this, it’s unknown. A variance in the Portal Network. It could be related to…
LORAZON: The Obsidian Shield?
ENGINEER: That’s our working theory. We know that both Jahan and the Acolyte have been experimenting with some ancient XM tech that’s outside of our current knowledge base.
LORAZON: I see.
ENGINEER: Those two don’t know what they’re dealing with.
LORAZON: No. They know exactly what they’re dealing with and they don’t care. That makes them twice as dangerous. How long will this disturbance last?
ENGINEER: Unknown, sir. We’ve never seen anything like this before.
LORAZON: Monitor the situation. Keep me in the loop.
