"I'll get a little closer to the surface!" he says as he quickly looks for a sealant kit or expanding patch kit of some sort on the mini-sub.

The submarine was equipped with emergency repair kits, so Montoya took one and begun applying it to the leak.

His equipment back online, Gilbert buries himself into his work and tries whatever he can to gain info from this cell phone.

The cell phone belonging to the SSPB agent James Lee only had one number stored in it - that of his office on Ganymede (which had been called a number of times). Following the name on the net however, revealed that Agent James Lee had been missing from the force for about three weeks now.

Delving even deeper uncovered a stray piece of information – apparently from a top secret SSPB file leaked onto the Net. The file was pretty hacked up, but did indicate that Wong’s Fortune Cookie Works was on a list of suspected drug trafficking fronts slated for SSPB Sting Operations. Cross-referencing this file with Agent James Lee confirms that he was one of agents assigned to these missions.

It also seemed that agent James Lee had sent a hasty non-encrypted message to his office voicemail from his cell phone on his last call. A small portion of the message was still in the Ganymede Telecom system buffers and indicated that Agent James Lee thought he had finally cornered A.C. Morrison – the message ended abruptly however, with the sound of gunfire and swearing in Chinese. What is even more disturbing though, is that there is evidence the message was intercepted as it was sent and hacked out of the voicemail system – so that it was never delivered – but there is nothing left to indicate who might have intercepted the message and hacked it out.

Perhaps the most important find on the phone however, was the geo-tracking which was still functioning. It showed typical travel from place to place up to where the the investigation had led agent Lee here. Then, following his last call, it only showed two points, with no travel in between - here under Uliga Island - and a point under a place called Alester House, a large estate located on one of the private islands to which the floating Uliga Island was anchored – about fifty miles from Wong’s Fortune Cookie Works.

The fact that there was no GPS data between the two points, corresponded with the fact that the submarine would have been underwater with no geo-tracking signal between the two - only recording once the sub had surfaced in each point.

The cell phone showed a total of six trips between the two points, from the time agent Lee had dropped the phone behind the control panel

"A mansion on top of a private island, sounds like a pretty likely location doesn't it?", Crystal says.

"We'll have to see the place first but I'll bet it's fortified and guarded up the ass"

"Well, we could but..."

Crystal scratches the back of her head as she ponders for a second

"There's not much we can actually do to prepare for this outside of scouting the place, which we'll do from the sub anyway, right?

Police might have some of our faces too, I was wearing a mask when I was running to the factory but I don't think Butch or you were, we could have been identified and going back to the ship could be dangerous - you mind finding out if they know who we are Gil?"

Gilbert groans, realizing they wont be leaving yet. He then pulls out his computer and begins researching anything he can concerning the island so they're prepared.

Taking a while to root-out every last bit of information, Gilbert managed to uncover some real gems.

Officially, Alester House and the island itself were owned by ‘Arthur Connolly Holdings’ – a super-rich money laundering – er… “money lending” corporation. While nothing illegal can be proven against it, the company has developed quite a bad reputation over the years, as a merciless band of greedy loan sharks that would have no problem foreclosing on a hospital or orphanage, should it ever get the chance.



Alester House is a large estate located on one of the private islands to which the floating Uliga Island industrial complex is anchored. Because of this, the estate is reachable by motor vehicle, along a private road that leads from Uliga Island and onto the natural island, before winding a mile or two up the verdantly green hills to the manor proper.

The area around the manor (see Estate map) is surrounded by a twelve foot high heavy chain link fence, entered through a stone gatehouse watched over by a camera. An intercom at the gatehouse allows two-way communication with the manor from the gatehouse, so the gate can be opened remotely when needed.

Beyond the gatehouse, the private road winds through a heavily wooded area, before opening up to a clearing in which the manor stands. The trees surrounding the estate have been cleared fifty feet from the fencing, where a dirt track follows the fence along the inside to allow regular patrols to dive along its perimeter. Further security also includes a camera at each corner of the fencing, looking down the length.

The manor itself, a three-hundred by two-hundred-forty foot wide, sixty foot high, stone mansion with Spanish-tile roof, is situated atop a hundred foot high cliff overlooking the ocean. It, in addition to a garden, swimming pool, and tennis courts, sits on a twelve foot high raised stone courtyard. A matching stone wall extends to either side of the raised courtyard, to hide the chain fence behind and offer a more refined vista of the area from the manor. Additionally, a very large garage and fenced dog kennel are also located on the grounds. Cameras on the manor house watch over the clearing.

The fenced-in dog kennel houses a dozen vicious and aggressive guard dogs, trained to attack anyone they don’t recognize – in other words, Gilbert and Gilbert alone. The kennel can be opened remotely from the Security Room in the basement of the Alester House by means of a buried hardline between the two.

Each of the dogs in the kennel are equipped with an unusually bulky collar – perhaps an explosive device or other nefarious trap.

A camera watches over the interior of the garage, which houses six fancy sports cars, an unmarked delivery van, and a relatively modern tank – complete with a turret mounted 115mm Military Main Gun and 20mmC Military Heavy Support Gun.

Also in the garage is a work area with an elaborate set of mechanics and electronics tools, where the tank is currently being serviced.

In addition to the cameras and fencing mentioned above, below is a list of the manor’s other security measures.

Two Snipers are stationed on the roof of the manor house, ready to pick off anyone noticed by the security cameras that come into the clearing or near the house.

Two Manor Thugs also patrol the grounds in an old Jeep, equipped with a 12mmL Police Vehicle-Mounted Chaingun.

Each of the three small clearings, in the wooded area that surrounds the manor, contain an underground missile battery that can be raised up and controlled via buried hardline to a panel in the manor’s Security Room. There are twelve Surface-To-Air Missiles in each battery, which the manor will use to defend against air-based attacks or intrusion.

Gilbert also managed to snag some maps of the interior, though the layout of the basement was not available - nor the underground sub-base apparently...

"This definitly seems more heavily defended than normal, so somthing MUST be going on. We should sneak in and out like ghosts, never let them even know we were there until they find their secure room empty and see our silhouette disappearing on the horizon!" Montoya announces, partly intended as a rousing speech to help lift everyone's spirits

"Yeah... you guys sneak in and out. I'll stay on the sub and... uh... make sure its ready to leave when we need to disappear," Gilbert suggests, wiping sweat from his forehead.

"I can help everyone better from here anyway."

"Gilbert, how close do you need to be to hack the secuirity cameras? This gotta be an in+out mission."

Jacob continues his search for what he has now named scopetube.

Upon hearing Crystals remark on Gilbert, he sighs, and mumbled mostly to himself "the difference between having a dick and being one"

After a bit of travel, the submarine came near the coordinates that had been gotten off the phone. Sure enough it was right off the cliffs of the Alister Estate. Instruments on the control panel showed a thirty meter wide tunnel or cave opening, hidden about fifty meters below the surface of the water - significantly larger than the diameter of the small submarine itself.

Gilbert meanwhile, was looking at a news-feed on his computer, currently showing the SSPB taking the Dandy Desperado into custody and teams of heavily armed police storming into it to do a search.

A reporter then came on to reveal everyone's name and face, including the various bounties on their heads. Apparently, one of the crew had spilled the beans and told them everything - including their current mission to nab famouse drug kingpin A.C. Morrison.

Because Samuel was shot up pretty bad the last time anyone knew, that meant Cillian had to be the stool-pigeon.

"Yeah... hopefully she's okay," Gilbert replied, silently mourning the loss of his snack-runner.

"But uh... where do you guys want me to drop you off?" He asks, shifting nervously in his seat. "I doubt we can just pull into the docking bay without drawing attention to ourselves."

"Let's get in close and see if they have any detectors in the underwater passage! If we can slip in there, we can be in and out before they know what hit them!"

Montoya checks for what sensors the sub has and if it has a system log for being ping-d or returning a passcode when it approaches.

Montoya's check didn't reveal any high-tech security protecting the underwater entrance. It looked like any old submarine could simply go right in anytime it wanted...

"Onward!" Montoya announces, then remembering he was driving, he sits down and carefully pilots it in,  trying to keep it slow and stealthy and out of sight.

"This is not a real sub. There's no scopetube." Jacob said  with a disappointed look on his face.

"Was there any security guarding the way in?"

As Jacob stood there murmuring, the periscope abruptly slid down from above to knock him in the head. After rubbing the bump with his hand for a second, he grabbed the optics and looked through.



Their mini-submarine was just under the surface, along sturdy stone pier, in a huge natural water-filled grotto with a seventy-five foot high ceiling. The wide pier ran eighty feet out from a landing, where a cargo elevator and wrought-iron spiral staircase ascend to the Alester Manor high above. A camera, located fifty feet up the south wall, watched over the area, while a control booth for an overhead crane (build into the high ceiling over the pier) stood at the west edge of the landing.

Docked on the opposite side of the pier was a hundred and fifty foot long submarine, complete with conning tower. Two pallets of chemicals had recently been offloaded from the submarine with the overhead crane and set down at the far end of the stone pier.

"Hmm take out surveillance first, then rig explosives on that other sub!" Montoya adds. "Jacob, keep an eye out for any enemies while I get us ready to dock. If we can't hack it from here I will try and let someone out in a blind spot" Montoya waits for confirmation that the camera has been hacked before surfacing.

"I... uh... sure," Gilbert replies, still depressed that he had to join the others with the infiltration. He tries to hack into the wifi, then gain access to the cameras that are connected to the network.

Checking his options, Gilbert could see that the house security was designed to have no external connections to the net and that everything inside connected through a hardwired system - except for one easily overlooked backdoor. It seems that someone had secretly tapped into the outside web through a smart TV in one of the guest bedrooms to gain access to their favorite porn sites. The connection was still open and allowed Gilbert just enough of an opening to get his foot in the door.

After some serious keyboard wrangling, Gilbert had used that single entry point to fight his way into the central system and hack into the cameras. From his laptop, he could now create a continuous loop through the grotto's camera to mask their presence as well as see through all the other cameras in the house.



Running some facial recognition software through the feed, he got a hit on the basement level - seeing A.C. Morrison walking up the hallway towards the playroom before disappearing off camera.

Oh, and Gilbert now had access to the fire-control system of the estate's three missile batteries, which was nice.
