Apex Centre Access[edit | edit source]

Found in the room in the CSO near the elevator.

To: Maxim
From: Slava


You are on the duty roster for Wed night. Once you get to the CSO, log in as a new user and I will take care of the rest remotely.

New guy[edit | edit source]

Found in the office in the CSO's bottom floor.

To: Keith O'Conner
From: Lester Dobbs


New guy starting on Wednesday night. Transfer from eastern European office. I think he speaks English but can't say how good. Name's Maxim. Show him around the IT offices, get him acquainted and settled in.


Remaining Areas[edit | edit source]

The following pocket secretaries are located in the reception hall, catering area, meeting rooms area and/or exhibition hall. Some of the pocket secretaries listed below can be found in more than one of these locations.

Re: Food and Beverage[edit | edit source]

Found on a sofa in the reception hall, near the elevator.

To: Don McGowan
From: Liam Slater

Mr. McGowan,

The threat made on the Safe Harbour conference suggested that the food and drink could be a method of attack. Do you really want London's less fortunate dying from eating poisoned food? Food donated by Apex Centre?

Good day, sir.

Chief Liam Slater
Tarvos Security Services Apex Ctr.

From: Don McGowan
To: Liam Slater


While I understand the security concern, I don't see how throwing away over 100,000 C's worth of food and drink is helping anyone. This should have been donated to a food bank.

Mezzanine Passcode Reset[edit | edit source]

Carried by multiple shadow operatives (disguised as security guards) in the reception area.

To: Tarvos - Apex

With the security threat we are facing, we've decided to keep all the party goers on the lower floor. We have locked off the mezzanine. The passcode is 1515.

Please make sure no one gets "lost".

Catering Area Locked Down[edit | edit source]

Carried by multiple shadow operatives (disguised as security guards) in the reception hall.

To: Stormsurge
From: Slava

I've recoded the lock on the door to the Catering Area. If you need access, check with Cenda, he has a keycard and can swipe you through. He'll be patrolingsicsic the party guests in the Reception Hall.

Champange is here[edit | edit source]

There are crates (not cases, crates!) of Rion D'Auvergne down in the dungeon. This Brown character spared no expense, eh? Anyways, mind popping down to give us some idea of how you'd like to handle setting it all out?


Terminate with extreme prejudice[edit | edit source]

Carried by a shadow operative (disguised as a security guard) in the reception hall.

To: Stormsurge
From: OldBlueEye

If anything happens that puts Stormsurge in jeopardy, do not hesitate to use lethal force. There will be no respect for collateral damage.

We must not fail.

Ivan, we have control of the Reception Hall security roomsicsic Your squad now has support from the eye in the sky - all cameras in the area belong to us. If you need to access them, the passcode for the control terminal is "arcturus".

Catering Keycard[edit | edit source]

Found in the auditorium.

To: Stormsurge
From: Goran

If anyone heads back toward the catering area, please pick up my keycard, I left my duplicate there, near the computer in our security area.



Mobile Turrets Activated[edit | edit source]

Found in the auditorium.

To: Stormsurge
From: Slava

We now have control of all security and defense systems in the building. I've activated mobile turrets and sweetened their proximity detection. A little added pest control is never a bad thing. Password is "fireworks" unless you want to go home in a bucket.



Activate[edit | edit source]

Carried by multiple shadow operatives in the Apex Centre. The identical message is sent to different recipients.

To: Various recipients: Gold leader, Black Leader, Red leader, Blue leader
From: Old BlueEye

Stormsurge is active. Excecute orders.

An uninvited guest[edit | edit source]

Found in meeting room C102. Also carried by a shadow operative.

To: Stormsurge
From: OldBlueEye

Our friend from Garm is back from the dead.

Everyone be alert.

The gates of Troy[edit | edit source]

Found in meeting room C104, near the turret. The quote is from a poem, "The Tale Of The Trojan Horse," by Ingrid de Klerck.

To: Stormsurge
From: OldBlueEye

"Celebrating the end of the war, the villagers dance. The horse as a silent witness to their ignorant bliss".

Slava's Trojan worked. We now have complete control of the buildings security and defense network.

We are close, brothers. Be ready.

Sentries[edit | edit source]

Found in the Exhibition Hall. Floor 1 south-east corner

To: Zeljko
From: Slava


Once the sentries are unpacked into the Exhibition Hall, hard boot them and then let the loader do its thing. It won't take long. Once all the lights are green, punch "goldenage" and they're all yours.
