オリバー・リントン=ウルフが使用していたと思しき地下研究施設の調査を行った折の記憶をハンク・ジョンソンは振り返り、興味深い疑問を投げ掛けもしたよ。エンライテンドがマグナスの命運を掌握したが、果たしてどのような思惑があるのだろうか。エンライテンドが来るマグナスをどのように構築するかその想いを知るための短編動画を制作するため、意見を開陳してくれるエンライテンド諸君を招きたい。

レジスタンスのエージェント諸君も主張を訴えて構わないが、再考を促す以上の影響を与え得るかは怪しいものだ。

便宜上、投稿には #FateOfThe13 のハッシュタグを附記してくれ。

ハンク・ジョンソン:
オリバー・リントン=ウルフがテクトゥルフを生み出したと目するディー・グロッケ施設へ私が辿り着いたときには、奴の姿はなかった。そこには未知の勢力が潜み、監視していた。そいつらは待ち伏せしていたから、私も暴力沙汰とはならずとも膠着状態にはなると考えていた。だが、おそらくは上からの指示があったのだろうが、調査を妨害しようとはしなかった。

そいつらが何者だったのか、誰の指示で動いていたのか、は知らないが、憶測を巡らす余地は充分にある。部族民であるかのように思えた。やりあうことはなかったが、科学技術に通じ、扱いに長けたね。巧妙に偽装された傭兵集団だったのかもしれないし、その地下施設にかねてより存在した未知なる人類や人工物であったのかもしれないし、エクソジェナスの影響を受けて変異した人類だったのかもしれないし、あるいは私の想像の産物だった可能性だってあるね。有り得ることだよ。そこは尋常ならざる場所だったからね。直接のやりとりはなかったわけだが、私はそいつらの存在を感じ取っていたし、ちらりとこの目に捉えたものと信じているよ。

その施設自体はリントン=ウルフが使用するより以前の第二次世界大戦とその後の実験による成果たる鐘型の人工物を除いて何もなかった。いずれにせよ、モイヤー・テクトゥルフと呼ばれるものの物理的な痕跡は何ひとつとして残されてはいなかったよ。私も考えなしに「物理的な」と表現したわけではない。非物理的な痕跡はあったのだ。ディー・グロッケの施設内でも存在を感じ取っていた、他のアノマラスゾーンでも感じたものをね。今ではテクトゥルフの建造こそがアノマラスゾーン出現の先触れなのではないかと思うようになっているよ。それを裏付けることはできないが、実際のところ私はそう考えている。かつてはそういった直感を蔑ろにして後悔することになったからね。

それに意味があるかはわからないが、よく知る「人物」の存在もそこに感じ取った。それがオリバー・リントン=ウルフであったのか、クルーであったのか、スザンナ・モイヤーであったのか、あるいは混在していたのかはわからないが、私にはそれが三人のうちの誰かひとり以上のものに思えた。今一度言及するが、これは奇妙な場所での何ら合理的なものでないし実証しようのないことだが、そうであっても感じ取ったものなのだ。

何者かによって文書で漏洩されたことだが、ナイアンティック計画のメンバーたちとは様々な手段で直接やりとりしてきた。今回の漏洩は私に「ジョンソンの法則」を定義づける契機になったよ。簡単に言ってしまえば、「内密の文書であればあるほど、漏洩して広く行き渡る可能性が高い」というものだ。実際にはそのやりとりを広めようとして、私は報告書が内密なものであるかのように装ったのさ。

いくつか明らかとなったことがある。我々はマグナスを形成したが、誰もがエンライテンドでもなければ誰もがレジスタンスというわけでもなく、私がピュアマグナスと呼んでいるものではなかった。あれはハイブリッドマグナスであって、その意味するところは憶測することしかできない。しかしながら、マグナスの備えるべき全ての特性は存在していた。我々は同じとき、同じ場所に集い、その誰もがアーキタイプの要件を満たしていた。我々は研究に取り組み、エクソジェナス・オブジェクトを生成し、過剰なエックスエムに曝されることとなった。実際のところ、我々はテクトゥルフを構築したのかもしれないし、ナイアンティック施設の地下に位置しながら時間と空間を超越した特性を備えるアバドンは、もはやテクトゥルフであることに疑う余地はない。

そのマグナスも終焉を迎えた。今後どうなるかはわからないし、誰が残るのかもわからない。

前途はその多くをエンライテンドに委ねられている。果たして彼らはどのような思惑を巡らせているのだろうか。

次に目指す地は、ワシントンD.C.郊外、国家情報局本部である。

Oliver Lynton-Wolfe was not present when I visited the Die Glocke facility where I thought his Tecthulhu had been constructed. It was guarded by unknown but curiously subterranean forces. They laid in wait, and I expected -- if not violence, then certainly a tense standoff. However, they (perhaps on orders from their superiors?) decided to let me conduct my investigation unmolested.

I do not know who they are or who they serve, though there is ample room for speculation on this topic. They felt like tribesmen... Uncontacted, but very aware and capable of using technology. Perhaps they were well camouflaged mercenaries, perhaps they were some strange human or cultural artifact of previous occupations of this chamber, perhaps they were humans mutated and infused with the Exogenous, or possibly, they were spectral figures of my imagination. It's possible. This was no ordinary place. I had no direct contact with them. I felt their presence and believe I saw them out of the corner of my eye.

The facility itself stands empty save for a gigantic bell-shaped artifact which pre-dates Lynton-Wolfe and is quite possibly the result of experiments during and after the Second World War. In any case, there was no physical trace of what has been called the Moyer Tecthulhu. I have not used the word 'physical' by accident. There were non-physical traces. I felt a presence in the Die Glocke facility that I have also felt in other Anomalous Zones and have come to believe that the construction of a Tecthulhu may be a precursor to the emergence of an Anomalous Zone. I can not prove this, but for the record, I believe it. I have ignored such instincts before and lived to regret it.

And, for what it is worth, I felt a familiar 'human' presence there. I don't know whether it was Lynton-Wolfe, Klue, Susanna Moyer or a combination of them, but I believe it was one or more of that... trinity. Once again this was a non-rational, non-provable observation in strange place, but it's an observation nonetheless.

As has been leaked by unknown sources in documents, I have spoken in person and through various chat channels to a number of members of the original Niantic Project. The leaks surrounding this have caused me to define 'Johnson's Law'. Simply stated, it is that 'the more secret a document appears to be, the more likely it is to be leaked and widely disseminated.' I have contemplated making these reports appear to be much more clandestine than they, in fact, are, to expand the scope of my communication.

Some things have become clear. I believe we formed a MAGNUS, but as we were not all of Enlightened or Resistance alignment, it was not what I will call a Pure MAGNUS. It was a hybrid MAGNUS and I can only speculate on the meaning of that. However, all of the characteristics of the MAGNUS were present. We were gathered in the same place and time, we filled all of the Archetypical requirements. We carried out research and built Exogenous objects and we were all exposed to extreme amounts of XM. In fact, it might well be that we created a Tecthulhu and it is almost beyond doubt that Abaddon, located physically below the Niantic Facility but also maintaining an identity outside of time and space, was already a Tecthulhu.

That MAGNUS is now at an end. I do not know what will follow. I do not know who will remain.

The Enlightened control much of what lies ahead -- I wonder what they are thinking...

My next journey was to the NIA Headquarters outside of Washington D.C.

HANK JOHNSON: LYNTON-WOLFE'S CHAMBER, AND THE FUTURE OF THE MAGNUS

Hank Johnson shares some of his recollections investigating a subterranean chamber where Lynton-Wolfe may have worked... and also poses an interesting question: Now that the Enlightened control the fate of the MAGNUS, what are they thinking? I invite any Enlightened who wishes to make their opinion public to make a short video explaining how they would wish to structure the future MAGNUS so that we can begin to learn what they have in mind.

Resistance Agents could also make their pitches -- but I doubt they would have much impact beyond simply to provide an opinion for others to consider.

For convenience's sake, I'd recommend tagging any posts with #FateOfThe13.
