In that time, you've had to sign five non-disclosure agreements, undergo two biometric scans, and stare at a series of abstract geometric patterns as part of an anti-memetic safeguard. The last measure felt almost insulting: one of the reasons you were appointed the head of the Intelligence Division was due to your impressively high resistance to subliminal programming techniques. Finally, Nagisa retrieves you from the observation room and leads you into a small, dimly-lit chamber with a chair and a single holographic projector.Nagisa: "My apologies for the wait: we've had to shift around 10% of GNOSIS's processing power to his personality matrix in order to ensure he can answer your questions to the best of his ability without taxing the rest of the system; the optimization took some effort, but he's all yours now."You take a seat in the chair and wait. After a few seconds, the holographic screen flickers on, showing a stylized eye.GNOSIS: "Good day, Director. I am the Global Network Overwatch and Security Intelligent Servitor. I am interested to know why you have requested communication with me.">Why don't you tell me why I'm here?>A message was sent to my computer a few days ago. I want you to tell me who sent it.>There's a mole in FOCUS and I want your help to find them.
>>2133309>A message was sent to my computer a few days ago. I want you to tell me who sent it.

>>2133316>>2133373>>2133418>>2133813Kyoko: "There was a message sent to my computer a few days ago. I want you to tell me who sent it."GNOSIS: "Understood, Director."The eye symbol blinks out for several seconds, and the hologram shifts to a scrolling list of metadata.GNOSIS: "I'm sorry, I have checked all received messages sent to your computer in the past week, and have failed to find any irregularities. Would you like me to try again?"Kyoko:"Narrow your search parameters to all messages received on the 9th."The eye flickers briefly.GNOSIS: "Sorry, I still can't find anything.">Give it the specific metadata for the message>Run a self-diagnostic>Let's try something else: give me the system log of everyone who's interacted with your software this month.>Open your changelog of all work done during last month's shutdown.

Rolled 10 (1d10)>>2135012>>2135070>>2135156>>2135728Alright, let's settle this.
>>2135070>>2135156Clearly, something is interfering with GNOSIS's software.Kyoko: "Alright, we're getting nowhere with this angle: GNOSIS, access the system log of everyone who's interacted with your software in the past month."GNOSIS: "Understood."A dozen names pops up on the display. You recognize Hypponen's name, and you can guess that the half-dozen others with a special tag on their employee numbers are the members of the GNOSIS maintenance team. It's the five remaining entries that interest you: two have no employee numbers attached to them at all: they appear two hours after the maintenance team's logged access, and appear to have accessed the system parallel to each other, logging in within a minute of each other, and logging out less than an hour later. Two weeks after maintenance, there is a registered 10-minute access by employee idea #00007: the 7th Division Director's number. Another access, the day before the video was sent to you, is registered to Nagisa Shingetsu; he accessed the system for 3 hours. And finally, two days after the letter was sent, another employee ID accessed the system for 50 minutes... employee ID #00001. >Examine the parallel accesses>Examine the 7th Division Director's access.>Examine Nagisa's access.>Examine Director Togami's access.
>>2138488>Examine the parallel accesses
>>2138488>>Examine the 7th Division Director's access.
>>2138488>Examine the 7th Division Director's access.
>>2138488>Examine the 7th Division Director's access
>>2138532>>2138541>>2138542>>2139077Kyoko: "GNOSIS, display most recent access log for employee ID #00007."A simple file opens up. It looks like the Director accessed GNOSIS's changelog, downloaded a dumpfile of all viruses removed from Foundation servers in the past month, and logged out. >Examine the parallel accesses.>Examine Nagisa's access.>Examine Director Togami's access.
>>2139813>>Examine the parallel accesses.
>>2139813>Examine the parallel accesses.
>>2139813>Examine the parallel accesses.Best boy Nagisa couldn't have!
>>2140057>>2139958>>2139884These parallel accesses seem to be much more interesting than the Director's access. You lack the technical wherewithal to understand the specifics of what happened here, but it appears that both used elevated permissions to try and alter parts of GNOSIS's non-vital programming; the same parts, in fact. One would rewrite a line, the other would rewrite that rewrite, the first would revert the edit, and so on. This "battle" seemed to wind throughout GNOSIS's code until a low-level alert was finally triggered, at which point the two caused the system to revert and logged out. One of these accesses has no address, and the other registers its address as GNOSIS's own "brain". You notice that not all of the edits were reverted; a few still remain, although you'd need the advice of staff to explain what they do.>Alert staff about your findings.>Order GNOSIS to revert his software to the start of the month.>Examine the 7th Division Director's access.>Examine Nagisa's access.>Examine Director Togami's access.
>>2143902>Alert staff about your findings.
>>2143902>>Alert staff about your findings.
>>2143919>>2144137You send a quick message out to the site's support staff directly:A SECURITY BREACH SLIPPED UNDER YOUR RADAR. I NEED INFORMATION ABOUT THE TECHNICAL DETAILS REGARDING THE CHANGES THAT WERE MADE.Eight minutes later, Director Hypponen stumbles through the door.Hypponen: "Director!'Kyoko: "Yes?"Hypponen: "This breach... I don't understand how-"Kyoko: "I don't either, yet, but that isn't important right now. You're a cybersecurity expert; explain to me what the alterations to GNOSIS do."Hypponen: "Well... nothing, really. They seem to have reverted aspects of GNOSIS's mail trawler to an earlier model, eliminated the redundant ID checks when checking public terminal access, and deleted about a dozen employee IDs- we detected that last one, but we thought it was just a glitch; we had the staff restore those IDs in no time!"Kyoko: "So nothing major?"Hypponen: "No, of course not: anything significant, we would have detected."You cross your arms. You know what happened now. The question is... can you trust Hypponen with the information?>Tell him>Don't tell him
>>2144267>Don't tell himHe's old and overstressed. He probably won't be able to help us anyway, and the effect of this info on him is unpredictable.
>>2144267>Don't tell him
>>2144267>>Don't tell him
>>2144504>>2144530>>2145340Kyoko: "I'm certain you would have. Now, I'd like to interview the members of your HR department, please. Send them in one at a time."You smile slightly as Emile Delacroix comes into the room, nervously adjusting his tie. He takes a seat across from you.Emile: "Good day, Ms. Kir-I mean, Director.">Play along>Catch him off guard>Turn up the heat-slowly
>>2150370>Catch him off guardStraight as a fucking ahoge
>>2150370>Catch him off guard
>>2150370>>Catch him off guard
>>2150382>>2151019>>2151150Kyoko: "Emile, I can get your family back."Emile: "I... don't understand what you're-"Kyoko: "Your family's been kidnapped by agents of Ultimate Despair. They're forcing you to act as a mole using your family as leverage. Recently, they instructed you to insert a blank ID into the Future Foundation's database during the repair of a 'glitch'. This ID was then used to send a threat to my personal computer at least; I suspect that your actions have also compromised a lot of low-level information in our archives."Emile: "..."His hands are trembling, and you can see him reaching for the inside of his coat.Kyoko: "This isn't worth killing yourself over, Emile."Emile: "Do you have a family, Director? Can you possibly know what it's like?"Kyoko: "...Yes, Emile."Emile: "Then you know I can't help you. Not when they're on the line.">Try the soft approach.>Be hard with him.>Make him talk.
>>2151215>Try the soft approach.
>>2151215>>Try the soft approach.
>>2151252>>2151308>>2151326Kyoko: "All we need is a name, Emile. I promise I will do everything in my power to make sure your family is returned safe and sound to you."Emile: "You couldn't get to them in time. You couldn't even figure out what they were doing here until it was too late."Kyoko: "That's because we had no idea a cell this organized still existed; if you help us, we can get the advantage, catch them off guard-"Emile: "I can't, okay! I never saw who took my family!"Kyoko: "Of course they didn't, but you aren't a powerless man; you must have some kind of lead..."Emile: "I can't! I can't."Kyoko: "You're lying."Emile falls silent. It's clear that he's not going to just talk; he fears too much for his family's safety.>Hurt him>Pressure him>Let him think it over
>>2151775>Let him think it overYou'd be surprised what can work as a clue. Anything at all can give us clues on them. The words they used, the way they talked, anything.
>>2151775>>Let him think it overStare him down while he thinks it over, though.
>>2151775>Let him think it over
>>2151775>>Let him think it over
>>2151812>>2151856>>2153779>>2154072Kyoko: "I'll give you time to consider your future."You tap your phone, opening your comms channel to your bodyguards.Kyoko: "Stop him from doing anything stupid. I'm going to check out his workspace."You get up and head out of the room, leaving Emile with your security detail.Emile's workspace is compartmentalized; you briefly examine his perfectly-spaced assortment of pens before getting to work.>Look through Emile's phone>Look through Emile's folders>Look through Emile's computer
>>2154366>Look through Emile's phoneThis is probably how the kidnappers contacted him.
