Julian West Financial Associates
If you’re reading this, your first assignment is already underway. A VIP target has been captured by a small time group of mercenaries, known only as “Crocodiles”. The target is being held in downtown Chicago, somewhere in the Julian West Financial building. This financing firm is a front for the Crocs many activities, including a moderately sized drug ring and weapons shipping operation.
The building is twenty-one floors tall, and sits directly across from an active construction site. The rooftop has helipad access, in addition to a large open ventilation system that reaches from the roof to the lobby. There are two elevators, one on either the east or west sides of the building. There is also one staircase, running down the south side of the building. There are a minimum of two armed guards on each floor, excluding the lobby, where there are five. They patrol in five minute details, crossing paths at every two and a half minute intervals. On the first floor--despite heavy foot traffic--the front door is wide open. Blending in with the bankers on the bottom level wouldn’t be hard, if you didn’t want to go in through the roof.
And of course, you could approach this mission without stealth. The construction site across the street has two bulldozers. Knocking never hurt. The foreman is a pushover, but you’d have to practically kill him to get the keys.
Your mission: extract the VIP target, and deliver them to the drop point on the outskirts of Chicago. Eliminate any threats between you and the target, with extreme prejudice. You are to consider all opposition an imminent threat.
The enemy is heavily armed, and moderately dangerous. You should expect lots of resistance, even after finding your target. The target’s value is extremely high, so expect other Contractors‘ presence.
The target is being held in the basement of the Julian West Financial building, but the only way down is through a freight elevator, which requires dual key card access and is guarded by four armed guards at all times. The two key cards are divided among security personnel. One key card is on the lobby floor, with one of the guards at the elevator door. The second is on the twentieth floor, with one of the two guards on that floor. Each card emits a tiny electronic signature, so that security can keep track of them. This also makes your job a lot easier, providing you have the equipment or abilities to sense something like that. The ventilation shaft doesn’t extend to the basement, so you will come out on the ground floor to reach your destination.
This heavily encrypted file was uploaded to their phones, their emails, and even their private networks, aggressively invading their files and forcing itself to display as a file with top priority. Those who had been signed with Concealed Mass were now being thrown into a live game of cat and mouse, as their new orders were given. They were separate from each other, unaware of one another’s presences.
Having prepared their entrances--whether disguising themselves within the lobby’s patrons, sneaking into the construction site, or scaling onto the rooftop--the Contractors had been in place and prepared to move in for several hours, waiting for the prime opportunity to strike.
Unbeknownst to each of them, five additional parties were waiting to seize the same objective, and were prepared to kill for it.
