Seconded for the elevator. So many ways it could be shut down.

An alternative, since the riots are going on, is to actually create a bit of an incident to distract security (or most of the building, even) while we infil and grab what we need - molotovs hitting cars in the parking lot or some such. I'm guessing it's not an alternative we'd consider much IC, between potential for collateral damage and the fact that we don't have a complete picture of the inside, but it's an option.

Blake nods. "Safety inspectors may need to inspect a variety of systems due to damage from the ongoing riots...including the emergency stairwell.

"We should also prep for the possibility of throwing down with security and especially the Prizak operative." Blake taps his pencil against the cover of his pocket notebook. "If we can get access to the secure server closet, we could erase the evidence of our passage, and even plant some implicating someone else."

Well, you did destroy one of the cameras. That gives you a potential in as the repair guys having to not only mount a replacement, but also check the whole system. IF you can make good enough disguises and talk the right kind of bullshit, that is.

I'd rather do the stairwell than the elevator.

Alleviating suspicion with a protests-related excuse might give us some cover/safety net to mess with their stuff. Maybe Cop Talk or similar to prime K Group ahead of time to expect routine disruption?

"Sounds like if we control the first sublevel, we own the vault," Mason says.

Based on Blake's use of For Your Eyes Only, you have a shared pool of 3 Investigative Ability points and 4 General Ability points you can spend to help with your infiltration of K Group. You can spend them as if they were your own for any ability you actually possess.

I have already told Kasey that one possible spend of an Investigative point would be to acquire a zero-day hack that would reset all retinal scanners to disabled if you can reach the secure server closet. Other options are available, but let's hear some ideas first. :)

"I took the liberty of compiling what we know, based on the surveillance Blake carried out," Laith says.

"First stop, ground floor." Laith throws a few pictures on the projector. "Basic-ass RFID card readers. We have enough SIGINT to clone a couple for our use. Doctoring them to look like company IDs and matching uniforms is Tim's wheelhouse." He clicks through. "Without a TEMPEST suite I had to hack together some analysis tools for the EM signatures we picked up. I think I can match transient spikes to arrival and departure of their IT guys, with 95% consistency. Tells me three things. One, elevator access to downstairs. Two, no regular stair access - woulda expected at least one dude to walk if he has to go just one floor down. Put a gun to my head, I think we're looking at a fire escape staircase only, doors will be linked to the alarm - but they might also have less complicated security than the elevator access. Three, there's not a lot of people in total going down there. If we can get past this without getting blown, we should be facing minimal resistance."

"Anyway, first sublevel." Laith throws up a signal heatmap overlaid on a satellite picture. "Was able to track some phone signals even down there, that gets us a rough layout. More EM tea leaf readings suggest their server farm here and their utility room here." He points to another area that's "cold" on phones but radiates heavily. "Secure servers. I believe they have a seperate server closet for stuff that runs their security systems. Based on what I've been able to find, they use RapidScan tech already - retinal scanners, to be precise. Servers are probably a hard target for hacking but physical access covers a multitude of sins."

Then he clicks the presentation over to a big, fat question mark. "Second subfloor contains the vault. That's as much as I can say with certainty, it's too deep and too shielded to get useful signal from there. Oh, the millimetric wave scanners are not installed, this is probably where the retinal scanners actually are. Other security...who knows. The good news is, they can't be dug deeper and they can't have a big fuck-off bank vault down there, the ground water level and soil wouldn't support it. Other than that, this is that white spot on the map."

Luis looks around the room at Zaef's comment, eyeing the scattered remains of crates, equipment, and the debris of bodies. "Are we better off waiting here? We seem to be doing pretty well taking the fight to them."

Zaef grades the remaining cover with a harrumph. "Our friends on the roof are probably on their way down. Let's do a quick sweep for remaining threats or traps before they get here."

Zaef does take note of the lone insurgent that was shot and not bombed. "Helluva shot, FTE. Glad you're on our side."
