This is the transcript of what was seen to occur on Hobbs Island, in the Lancewood Archipelago. Violet and Scarlett went on a random hunt here, looking for clues from Anthony Granier. When they arrived, they discovered some sort of bunker, which had previously gone under the guise of a lighthouse. They started to need some help, so contacted Kurt, who setup a chat interface and viewer.

The dates discovered during these events can be seen in relation to each other and PPC general history in the Timeline.


On Thursday, 21 September 2006 (269 PXC), Violet and Scarlett explored Level one of the bunker. They discovered it was a laboratory, self-sufficient in power from an undetermined source. The laboratory includes military-style barracks with bunks and a mess hall. One of the dishes served in the dining room was tansy pudding, an abortificant.

The lab opened in February 1732 (5 BC, PXC). Master Adamek was present for the opening. In 1733, the lab received a new "anti-air battery", which Kurt guessed is for a surface-to-air missle. We also learned that in December 1736, Viehattle ended the cease-fire and declared war on Perplex City.



Level two of the labs was explored on Friday, 22 September 2006. Two pressurized labs were discovered, with equipment such as a Class 5A Laser and a Magnetic Micromanipulator. Each lab had an observation room attached.

The lab's purpose appears to be for a Material Research & Control project, experimenting on a 'General Purpose Self-Contained Material System (Cubic)' -- aka, the Receda Cube. Findings suggest the experiments wer trying to acheive a max coherence time to extend its capabilities:

12 March 1732 - max coherence 0.2s acheived
2 June 1732 - June 2nd 1732 - max coherence to 1.3s, but power spikes. Change silicon doping?
late 1732 - programming breakthrough, coherence extended to 10s

An accident occurred in December 1736, leading to the deaths of Drs. Kennard and Cook. A letter from Adamek to Edwina Mountling states that Anthony Granier with be appointed the Government Liason for the lab.

Violet discovered that the elevator has two doors, leading to a second set of rooms for level 2. With this discovery, we learned that the lab's floorplans mimic the design of the 3P symbol.

Violet, Scarlett, and Kurt all remark that it's weird no one's found the lab before this; the Kiteway sisters plan to question the islanders about this.



Level Three is explored. The crew discovers the offices of Granier and Mountling. Violet is intrigued by Mountling's personal diaries. They discover a number of sealed off machine and experimentation rooms.



It's The Cube! They were building The Receda Cube!



Power surge! Maybe it's just old wiring. Hey, did I hear a door opening...?



Here there be monsters.
