ハンク・ジョンソンは引き続き、ヤーハンのプライムアーティファクト・アーカイブへどのようにして略奪を企てられたか、そしてどのようにして撃退されたかを明かした。

ハンク・ジョンソン:
先の投稿では触れずにいたが、ヤーハンと話したあとに私は何が起きたかを調査すべくインドへと渡っていたんだ。いたって平凡な手段を用いての度だったよ。

ヤーハンとアズマティの系譜が複雑を極めていたことは今更言うまでもないことだろう。それはまさしく「仲間でもあり敵でもある」といった関係性だ。両家は何世紀にもわたってプライムアーティファクトを巡る激しい争いを繰り広げていたが、アノマラスゾーン・プレディクション機能やエキゾチックマターに関する情報なども含め、その寡占的な立場を維持していくことを望む部分では結託していたと言える。これは諸君を悩ませることとなるだろうが、非常に納得のいくことだ。

ある種、国家情報局の台頭とイングレス・スキャナーの普及は両家にとって忌避する最悪のシナリオであったことだろう。

我々の個人的な関係もそういった古くから続く因果なのだとはわかっている。

ヤーハンの宮殿へ辿り着き、我々は侵入の痕跡のみならずその後に起きたことに関わる痕跡も発見した。要するに、窃盗団は様々なエクソジェナス機構によって撃退されていた。ヤーハンとその一族は、受動的、能動的な侵入防止システムを屋内に備えていたわけだ。簡単に言ってしまえば、その太古に作られた罠は依然として間違いない効果を発揮させていた。

先端技術が必ずしも旧来技術よりも効果的であるとは限らないし、エクソジェナス兵器が現代兵器を上回る効果があるわけでもないと私は考えるに至っている。それらはほんの些細な異周波で作用しているに過ぎないのだ。

What I did not mention in my last post is that, after hearing from Jahan, I traveled to India (through very conventional means) to help investigate what had taken place...

It is impossible to overstate how complex and intertwined her and Azmati's family histories have been. It is a true 'frenemy' situation. While they have ferociously competed for Prime Objects for centuries, along with Anomalous Zone Prediction capabilities and other exotic Intel, they are bound together by a desire to keep the rest of the world from breaking up their virtual monopoly. If you think about it, this makes quite a bit of sense though it's often confusing.

In some ways, the NIA and the widespread availability of the Ingress Scanner was a nightmare scenario they had both hoped never to face.

I also find that our personal relationship is both at the cause and effect of these ancient tides.

Arriving at her palace we indeed found evidence, not only of intrusion, but of what followed... In other words, some of the would be thieves had been repelled by various Exogenous mechanisms that Jahan and her ancestors had placed in the chambers along with passive and active intrusion deterrence systems. In plain speak, traps built in ancient times that still work to deadly effect.

It is becoming quite clear to me that high-tech is not necessarily as effective as low-tech and Exogenous weapons are no more or less effective than modern weapons. They simply work on a slightly different frequency.

Hank Johnson continues the story of the attempted theft of Jahan's Prime Artifact archives... and how it was repelled.
