Yes. The idea is that we do know about them, but we don't know that they've broken into our 'secret mainframe'. Using the mainframe, we'll set up a rendezvous for the seventh and final keyword in London on 22nd October. No doubt they'll attempt to disrupt this 'rendezvous' - we're going to encourage them to come along, in fact, with some coded adverts and a fake website of someone who's infiltrated our organisation. When they come, we can watch them.

I see what you mean by double-bluff now. I'll arrange transport to London to arrive in good time. If you want to know the capabilities of this network, then I recommend that we set them a number of tests preceding the rendezvous; tests of their intelligence, imagination and organisational abilities. After all, we want to make sure that only our agent (me) can get through to the rendezvous! Those fools will just be helping us...

PERPLEX CITY, SEASON ONE
The search for the Receda Cube on Earth


General Information

This is a set of conversations discovered in emails bewteeen members of The Third Power on Earth. Further information on this topic can be seen at the article: 3PGroupwareManager.


Checking In

Date: 8 October 2005 8:58am
From: O8
To: O1
Subject: Sydney

I'm ready.


Sting

Date: 8 October 2005 9:15am
From: O1
To: O8
Subject: Sting

I apologise for the change in arrangements for your activation, but our normal route of communications was compromised. We are going to turn this to our advantage. I need your assistance to set up a fake holiday website to coincide with the sixth sign in Manchester.

We're going to perform a double-bluff - the website will pass itself off as being the last in the series of keywords. The enemy network will then crack a puzzle-password we've set there in order to access our 'secret mainframe'; they seem to have a very low opinion of our security and so we're confident they'll believe they've really cracked through. We will use this holiday website to feed them false information.

Date: 8 October 2005 10:02am
From: O8
To: O1
Subject: Sting

Sounds good. I'll help in any way I can.

Date: 8 October 2005 10:31am
From: O1
To: O8
Subject: Sting

Good. I've decided that I want you to meet the members of this network face to face. It's a risk we haven't taken so far, but I have no reason to believe they suspect us.

Date: 8 October 2005 10:46am
From: O8
To: O1
Subject: Sting

Okay. How will you arrange the meeting? Through the holiday website?

Date: 8 October 2005 10:50am
From: O1
To: O8
Subject: Sting

Yes. The idea is that we do know about them, but we don't know that they've broken into our 'secret mainframe'. Using the mainframe, we'll set up a rendezvous for the seventh and final keyword in London on 22nd October. No doubt they'll attempt to disrupt this 'rendezvous' - we're going to encourage them to come along, in fact, with some coded adverts and a fake website of someone who's infiltrated our organisation. When they come, we can watch them.

Date: 8 October 2005 11:12am
From: O8

I see what you mean by double-bluff now. I'll arrange transport to London to arrive in good time. If you want to know the capabilities of this network, then I recommend that we set them a number of tests preceding the rendezvous; tests of their intelligence, imagination and organisational abilities. After all, we want to make sure that only our agent (me) can get through to the rendezvous! Those fools will just be helping us...

Date: 8 October 2005 11:21am
From: O1

Wonderful. But will they really believe that *any* organisation would set up such a byzantine series of tasks just to get two agents to meet.

Date: 9 October 2005 8:21am
From: O8
To: O1
Subject: Sting

I've examined the reports on this enemy network, and mainly their unexpected participation in the 'Receda's Revenge' event. They seem extremely unprofessional. I study psychology - I assure you that these people will go along with our tasks. They think it's all some kind of game.

Date: 10 October 2005 9:12am
From: O1

I read the report you sent over separately - it seems fine. We'll be implementing most of your suggestions. As I mentioned earlier, you'll be pretending that you're a member of the enemy network.

Successful Completion (mass)

From: V
To: All operatives
Subject: Successful completion

Both unstable links in the chain have been eliminated. We were fortunate in several respects. It is vital that no other mistakes are made. Contact between operatives is only to be through established channels.

V.

Date: 12 October 2005 3:51pm
From: O3
To: All operatives
Subject: Successful completion

What about the fourth member of the original group?

Date: 12 October 2005 7:42pm

To: All operatives
Subject: Successful completion

For the time being, she poses no threat.

Date: 12 October 2005 7:48pm

I would favour a thorough eradication operation.

Date: 12 October 2005 7:49pm

Status

Date: 18 October 2005 10:03am

Subject: Status request

How is your assignment progressing? Have you re-established the link?

V.

Date: 18 October 2005 10:37am
From: O8
To: V
Subject: Status request

I've asked O6 to request support on the recent issue. Until I can lock that down, there's no way for us to re-link. Very troubling.

Date: 18 October 2005 10:41am
From: V
To: O8
Subject: Status request

Keep me apprised as soon as you've heard back.

V.


Geek Question

Date: 18 October 2005 10:55am
From: O8
To: O6
Subject: Geek questions!!

I've got kind of an emergency problem over here and I need your help on it. Contact me as soon as you get in and I'll zip you the details, okay?

Thanks, dude.

What's Up?
