Hyperborean Aerospace Data Retrieval

From Jackpoint

This job was given to us by a Miss Thompson who claims to be interested in retrieving testing data from a black box flight recorder from a Hyperborean Aerospace test jet. However, there is some inkling that Miss Thompson is far more interested in data on Lucy, the elf pilot of that plane.

Key Items

  • Miss Thompson has given the team a file which authenticates the black box to be retrieved. Extracted from the file headers include the callsign of the experimental craft.
  • We know that a certain Mr. Steiner has been sending out runs against the aerospace companies in the region. One of his lackeys was roughed up into spilling some beans, and revealed that it may have been a wetwork job, Mr. Steiner works for H&K and that our mark is in Kobe industries.
  • Johnson called Ms. Thompson, was dating Lucy, an elf test pilot for Hyperborian Aerospace (a subsidiary of Ares).
  • A plane she was flying disappeared 2 weeks ago in the Pacific Ocean - foul play suspected.
  • Around disappeared location is a Mana Barrier large enough to contain a large technical facility.
  • We have the flight plan, call sign, and a program to identify the plane.
  • Mr. Steiner, working for Hilbert & Kraus Defense, a small time joint, is involved.
  • Mr. Steiner has been putting out a large number of shadow runs, mostly against aerospace things.
  • Angle against a company called Kobei.
  • Lucy has an obit; Steiner's lacky (Mr. Smith) suggested that this was wetwork.
  • Coast Guard might have a map to the sea base .
