>>>>>[Mr. Freddy Frypp, unless mistaken, I have reason to believe that
you "employ" a certain mutual friend, Kor. I received a very disturbing
letter from him several days ago, and he has not responded. As a matter
of fact, as near as I can gather from my sources, he has not been active
on the Matrix since that point. I have also heard, mere rumors mind you,
that he was somewhere near the Cal Free-Tir border, and more importantly,
missing. These rumors were very sketchy, but given the nature of his
last message, I find it very likely. Now, let me cut to the chase. Have
you any clue as to where Kor is? As his employer, I would surmise to
guess that you would have at least a guess as to his whereabouts. It is
in my vested interests, Kor being one of my few friends, to find out
where he is. He, as I'm sure are well aware of, is in need of help. And
I very much would like to help him before I leave the country in a week.
Any and all assistance will be greatly appreciated, and will be
compensated for if you require. Thank you for your time.]<<<<<

>>>>>[I've got an idea but I'll tell you on one fragging condition.
One very fraggin' tight condition.


The original terms of Kor's employment with FryppSec was to organize
packs of loose hellhounds running in the area of Covello, CFS. He
mentioned he was going chasing hellhounds, or something to that

Tunnel-Rat is already in the area, but he's turned up missing, too.
Jacamus and Majikthize have headed up to give TR an assist, but
everyone has lost contact with them as well. Jonesy has reported
hearing explosions in the area. I've heard rumors of DragonEyes in
the neighborhood as well.

Now the condition: Forget EVERYTHING you see up there. I'm doing
you a favor in pointing you in Kor's direction. Do me a favor and
ignore what you see.]<<<<<

set up two more Sentry Guns and Hawk and me are taking shifts of guard duty. I
do what I can. BTW, still no contact from anyone on the radio.]<<<<<

>>>>>[Advice? What advice? I'll give you some advice now, though.

Find yourself a very deep hole to hide in and wire the place with
mantraps out the whazoo. You've already got sentry guns and drones
out, good. If you've got any, add some monowire in the doorways and
windows. Tripwires set to flares and frag grenades. Barricade the
halls and cover them with decent fields of fire. Keep lots of
ordinance within arms reach. And get off of the radio. I know
you're worried. We all are. Depeding on the sensors those birds you
saw are carrying, they can probably track your transmissions. Stick
to narrow band sat stuff. That's a helluva lot tougher to cue in on.

Don't worry about anybody trying to get in. Jac and Tunnel-Rat are
big boys. They can take care of themsleves. And if they can't....
As long as you keep your head down, keep out of sight and stay
wherever you can find the best defense you'll be in good shape.

And don't worry about not hearing from anybody, those mountains are
playing holy hell with radio and cell transmission.

Sounds like some very bad folks have wandered into your neighborhood.
With any luck, things should clear up soon.

Christ, I sound like a doctor whenever he has to give
