Moonlight scatters off the rooftops in the rear view mirror as you change your leather gloves for a new set and push the flat-six hard into the snow-capped mountainside above the ruined town you washed up on all those months ago. ‘Deny everything, do not provoke the true faith, welcome the new world,’ you think as the car races past the blighted villages beneath you, their streets and taverns abandoned forever, all as you’d seen in your visions. You find an abandoned train tunnel from before the war and slip in, attempting to evade your pursuers, the protectors of the man from whom you’d stolen the iron box. Grappling with one of them, you escape into the quickening dawn, threading your way down the opposite slope to a new town as the early morning sun begins to cut across the placid green hills. You slip through a chanting sect and look into the tenebrous flames of their altars, accepting a new life and seeing the possible worlds you left behind in the alpine passes. - Andrew Jackson King, Beta Decay.
I have been away many months. After my previous update I was called away on business and have been operating out of a research vessel located on the northeast end of Antarctica. Mr. Akers, our crew's captain, had received multiple reports of mysterious activity at the Artigas Base, a Uruguayan research outpost. The disappearances of 2 of the maintenance crew and a helicopter co-pilot as well as the slaughter of 5 dogs had occurred during the summer months. I had been apart of a small expedition sent out to search for the bodies of the missing crew. While out on one short journey we returned to find all of the crew missing. Strangely, all of their belongings remained except for Akers's research journal. I have translated some of the entries to send your way for additional study.

That was the entry in his journal. I have given this letter to a crewman on the Carnival Cruise Line Ship, QUIT'N'TIME. I must stay here and continue my research. I fear I may never leave these islands again.
