    Post Colonist Finds Key to 'Grid-Man' Mystery

    An internal CDF report titled CDF Report: Operation ‘Get-Grid’ explaining the mystery of Grid-Man and the new wave of ongoing robot attacks has been found amongst the wreckage of a robot: presumably it was taken by the robot after the slaughter of the CDF troop!

    In the report Grid-Man’s background, identity and connection to the CDF are revealed, as well as his special contribution to ongoing technological developments. It also explains Grid Man’s ‘Grid Theory’: that there are points where the destroyed Hadesheim Power network and the robot Base Matrix network ‘intersect’. These points of intersection — or ‘nodes’ — could in theory be tapped for valuable information direct from the Base Matrix itself. It is seemingly one of these nodes that the latest wave of robots are trying to protect.

    Captain Jeremiah Raznik (who led the destroyed CDF troop) said “It’s imperative now that colonists help us fight to secure the node location”.

    The contents of the report are reproduced here in full:

    Internal CDF Report: Operation ‘Get-Grid’:

    Disturbances caused by an individual known only as Grid Man’ wildly shouting “get-grid” and “beep” were recently experienced in various settlements, leading to complaints about the noise.

    We found ‘Grid Man’ living alone in a dirty shack with hundreds of maps of the Genesis Star Energy power station network covering every available surface.

    Further investigation revealed this individual to be none other than Archibald Levetnik: designer and one-time manager of the Genesis Star Energy power station network at Hadesheim in the days when Hadesheim was a colonist city (before it was completely crushed by the War Titan Typhon and acquired as a robot base). At some point after Hadesheim’s catastrophic destruction Levetnik disappeared: it was believed he had simply returned to Earth. The loss of the network — his creation, his pride and joy and favourite occupation — appears to have driven him insane.

    Yet despite his eccentricities, his specialist knowledge has proved invaluable to our cause.

    It seems the recent disturbances were his way of informing colonists of a recent breakthrough regarding his ‘Grid Theory’. This theory is rooted in Hadesheim’s history. After Hadesheim was destroyed, the robots proceeded to build their own power station in the city’s remains. Levetnik believes the robots partially recycled the material ruins of the old Genesis Star Energy network to create their own power and communications network. In other words, the robots partly built the foundations of their own network ‘on top’ of the old human-made network. If the current robot network were ‘superimposed’ over Genesis Star’s network, it might be possible to find robot network ‘nodes’ at the points where the two networks intersect. In theory, colonists could tap into the these nodes and retrieve valuable data direct from the robot Base Matrix.

    Since his disappearance Levetnik has been searching the wilderness around Hadesheim for these nodes using a crudely manufactured detection device: a kind of ground radar that emits a beep upon nearing a potential node area. His recent success at locating one of these nodes caused his excitable behaviour in the settlements.

    After much pointing and waving of arms we finally managed to come to an agreement. Levetnik would lead a small CDF expeditionary force to the node location, where we would investigate with a view to securing the area and acquiring Base Matrix intelligence from the node at a later date.

    I hope our presence goes undetected. There are reports that the Hadesheim robots are on their guard.

    /Captain Jeremiah Raznik

    Supplementary Note: the technology in Levetnik’s ground radar device was later found to be groundbreaking. It has formed the basis of a new Communications Array currently being developed by Genesis Star. The Communications Array will be specially designed to extract Base Matrix information from intersection nodes.

    Sounds to me like the lead up to the "looter" profession MA mentioned a few weeks ago.

    I'm kinda thinking this means some deeptokens in loot, and it's all about deeptokens.
    Still trying to figure this game out after 14 years.

    Seems they found one of their old developers hiding in the basement under mysterious circumstances. Love to hear the cheese stories though. At least one person keeping the continuity. And NO you are never going to loot deeptokens.
