Captain Jessie Ralston: Report

The two Mukai guards blocking the entrance to the stairs that led to the temporal device proved to be very formidable. It took mediation (by Tamara Morris) to end the fight that would have probably led to more deaths and disaster.

As it turns out these individuals really didn’t know what they had on their hands. They were compiling usage data and beginning the process of translating the information from the machine.

It was clear that getting free access to the temporal device was not forthcoming. We knew that objects could be sent back in time, so a document was transferred back giving us ‘diplomatic’ or very important guest privileges. It was the open access we needed.

In the process of accessing the device- also discovered was Sam, in the future; days away actually, and that is was better to just wait and catch up to him. However, more importantly was the revelation that the Mukai carrier would meet a fate similar to the Eldridge Event in ‘weeks time’. Things seem to be coming to a head. It was decided, by the Bad Ass Four Plus More to travel to the past (1908 Siberia) in hopes to meet up Percy and deliver the news and information we have discovered. We would hope that our return will coincide to when Sam catches up to the current time.

Our travel backward one-hundred fifty years finds us in a expansive land consisting of wet-lands, wooded areas and a castle-like structure retrofitted with metallic rods connected with wires and cables. Like some Frankenstein creation.

It was not long before a long carriage was found heading up to the castle. After stopping the vehicle we were reunited with a familiar face (a being referred to as Nova), who questioned us and our intentions. It was made VERY clear that we came in peace looking for Percy and that we were interested in being involved in plans against Mukai.

We were brought before Percy straight away, but he was not alone. With him was Sir Isaac Newton and Nikola Tesla. Both seemed to be working together and separately with unique agendas in the coming months before the Tunguska Event. Percy, delighted in the return of one of his lost teams, also asked in assistance in undoing all the corruption that Mukai has caused to history. We were only too eager to oblige.

Special Agent Capt. Jessie Ralston: Report

(Last week) After our run-in with the Mukai agents in 1945 Japan, we searched ‘ground zero’ castle in hopes that Sam would return. Our discoveries included loot stashes, and a safe. The safe proved to be about as effective as a brown paper bag to Phil. Inside was the afore posted picture of a bomb, and documents of the time-period; our trophies of war.

As dawn approached I attempted a temporal view into time, to ascertain the whereabouts of Sam. Apparently he was in ‘our’ future, from where the Mukai agents were sent from. Most likely on the carrier vessel we were familiar with.

Major Rutherford had a brilliant idea that would expend our radiation sensor but would expand its capabilities to pinpoint our temporal portal and Percy’s observation team (believed to be the German Scientists).

Discovered at the waterfront warehouse were one Enhanced Individual displaying duplication powers and four others; half dyeing from radiation fallout and the other half suffering from temporal shock. Much was discussed with the duplicator and many questions were addressed before returning to 2058 (current time), Mukai Industries Chicago and an unmanned temporal device.

Upon returning to Area 51 it was discovered that history is no longer as we remember; subtle changes have improved the overall influence of Mukai Global Industries.

Reports were submitted and the usual battery of tests performed that lasted two days. We talked with Chance who suspected Percy could have gone to Tunguska Siberia in 1908. He also aided with new satellite technology to track Sam- who was not discovered.

A woman (Percy’s team) was spoken with that brokered the introductions between Percy and Mukai. (I’m fuzzy on the details of what was discussed.)

Our next objective was to travel to the Mukai carrier (off the coast of Japan) in hopes to make contact with Percy (I’m fuzzy on this) and attempt to get a fix on ‘when’ these Mukai agents come from.

Our attendance on the Mukai carrier was paid little heed until we decided to put the jump on two unsuspecting Mukai employees guarding the way to the temporal device.

(After our ‘surprise’ round of combat we ended our session. Please comment to add details as you remember them.)

The Tunguska Event

The Tunguska Event, sometimes called the Tunguska explosion, was a massive explosion that occurred near the Podkamennaya (Lower Stony) Tunguska River in what is now Krasnoyarsk Krai of Russia, at around 7:14 a.m. (0:14 UT, 7:02 a.m. local solar time) on June 30, 1908 (June 17 in the Julian calendar, in use locally at the time).

The explosion was most likely caused by the air burst of a large meteoroid or comet fragment at an altitude of 3–6 miles above Earth's surface. Different studies have yielded varying estimates for the object's size, with general agreement that it was a few tens of metres across.

Although the meteor or comet burst in the air rather than directly hitting the surface, this event is still referred to as an impact. Estimates of the energy of the blast range from 5 megatons to as high as 30 megatons of TNT, with 10–15 megatons the most likely - about 1000 times as powerful as the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan and about one third the power of Tsar Bomba. The explosion knocked over an estimated 80 million trees over 2,150 square kilometres (830 square miles). The earthquake from the blast measured 5.0 on the Richter scale. An explosion of this magnitude is capable of destroying a large metropolitan area. This possibility has helped to spark discussion of asteroid deflection strategies.

The Tunguska event is believed to be the largest impact event on land in Earth's recent history; impacts of similar size in remote ocean areas would have gone unnoticed before the advent of global satellite monitoring in the 1960s and 1970s.
