So, for anyone that saw my last message about the Town of Salem game, I did not get around to organizing it this previous weekend. My apologies, I had some "housekeeping" to do for another project here on NationStates. I plan on doing some research tonight and trying to get it set up sometime later this week. Send me a telegram if you're interested!
existence is pain
Three men were gathered in a small boardroom, at an undisclosed location somewhere on the wealthier side of San Salvacion. Surrounded by aides and security guards, they watched a high-definition LED TV screen as news footage about the recent arrests was played. First, a large group of nine men and women in suits, walking quickly and shielding their eyes from the all-devouring cameras as they were escorted into a police station by a small army of gendarmes.
"The rank and file," said the Director of the IAT. "Middle-ranking defectors, people who were either giving out files discretely to other operators, or being careless enough with classified information that they will still probably wind up in prison. A few of them were caught trying to leave the country: the rest were caught off guard." The other two men nodded.
Next, shaky smartphone footage of a apparently lower-class blond kid in a hoodie being violently removed from a police van and dragged into another station appeared. He was laughing as the police pulled him along, and before they threw him through the doors he managed to get a wink at one of the cameras. The Director chuckled and shook his head
"Derek Colt, better known by his screen name of 'redweb05'. Age nineteen, male, Thalasi national of British descent. Dropped out of school at fourteen, supposedly to pursue coding and hacking skills. It must have worked for him, because nowadays he has a reputation as a genuine class-A hacker, having discovered eleven confirmed zero day exploits for financial institutions and governments around the world, and rumors are circulating that he has dozens more of them somewhere. He has numerous international connections of varying relevance and strength, including some in Allouxia, Yevraziyskaya Rus, Escanthea, and French Albania. Quite a character, that one. Finally nailed him when we broke one of his encryptions and found that he had hundreds of messages with some of the more guilty IAT players."
"Right." Kali Caine, the temporary Manager of Cybersecurity for the Villa Thalasus, sighed. "I tried hiring him a while ago. He has a real problem with authority though, and he was too closely connected to anarchists for our liking."
"That's because he is an anarchist. An anarcho-communist, specifically.”
Caine grimaced. "Ew."
"Hey." General Van Guillermo, the commander of military intelligence for the Thalasi Army, smirked. "It's a free society."
"Unfortunately," Caine responded sarcastically.
"Everyone be quiet," the Director said. "The pièce de résistance is on."
Armored police were quickly escorting a ethnic Frenchman through a crowd of press and yet more police. The man was in his mid thirties, green eyes, slightly taller than the average Thalasian, and his short beard was prematurely dotted with white and grey. An aide came forward and handed the Director a black file, laminated with the IAT logo.
"Parsman Guramiani. Age thirty seven, male, university educated, no known history of radicalism. French Albania national. Came to Thalasus to work on software for the Beylani Corporation in 1998, but he quit about three months ago."
"Did he give any reason?"
"Yes, and no. The day he quit, Parsman told the head of his division that he was 'exploring opportunities elsewhere'. At this point, he started regularly making contact with a few of the IAT insider suspects and three instances of contact with Colt."
Caine leaned in, interested. "That's it with Colt? Only three instances of contact?"
The aide nodded. "Three instances of contact, twenty-five messages. All of them are unreadable right now. A joint investigative team with the PF is still searching his flat and the surrounding, but we believe we have everything."
"Damn." The Villa Thalasus official slumped back.
The Director tilted his head. "Something wrong?"
"French Albania is already clamoring for us to release Guramiani. I was hoping we could get a stronger link to Colt, but..."
"It's strong enough," the Director said standing up. "I know it's not a lot, but the fact that the messages are encrypted with a custom-made key is suspicious enough that I'm not willing to waive Guramiani's arrest."
"Fair enough." Caine stood up as well. "I suppose I should have Villa Thalasus tell the Falbanians that their man was associated with communists?"
"Hm. Go with the anarchist connection more. Thalasi communism might be a distasteful joke here, but those nutjobs overseas honestly believe that our government is secretly waiting to break out the hammers and sickles at any time."
"Very well." As the two left the room, General Van Guillermo balked.
"T-That's it? This meeting wasn't just an update, was it? Shouldn't we be planning some kind of action?"
The Director blinked, while Caine ignored him and walked out into the hallway. "What action is there, other than calming the Falbanian aristocracy? The arrests were literally just made. We haven't even interrogated these people yet."
"If that's the case, what am I supposed to do?"
"I don't know. I'm not expecting any military systems to be found compromised. I was just going to go out to the hotel bar and get some drinks... Wanna come with?"
The general sighed. "Sure. Why not."
While Parsman's anarchist connections were made visible to both the Thalasi media and to the French Albanian government, interrogations (of the non-enhanced kind) were underway. A French-speaking IAT agent appeared before Guramiani, who was handcuffed to a steel chair in a stereotypically cold and unfriendly interrogation room. Without waiting for a word from Parsman, she began.
"First, I would like to confirm your identity. You are Parsman Guramiani, correct? And you are, in fact, a university-educated male from French Albania?"
