So, once again, I can't sleep. Figured I'd keep everybody posted as to what's going on.
Nightcrawler's been hauled off. PTC Internal Affairs will take it from here. He's officially no longer our problem.
On the subject of Scott's Electric Theorem, our science team's been hard at work figuring out how best to put it to use. A few requests have been put in with Central Command to send us some specialized 'lethal taser' rounds. We want to maximize battlefield efficiency, so we've been working on a more short-range solution to supplement the taser rounds: A close combat weapon that is essentially an electrified warhammer. The Slender Man is exactly what his name implies. That is to say, slender. So, a wide-headed weapon that's swung is a large arc is more likely to hit him in close combat, especially with a long enough handle; far easier to deal with him than if we were to resort to knives or swords or something. Rubber is wrapped around the handle for an easier grip, and to prevent the wielder from being electrified. We've dubbed our little prototype the 'Hammer of Thor.' Overly dramatic, I think, but still fitting.
We've been trying to figure out how to proceed without B2. Nightcrawler may have handicapped our efforts to enter the Path of Black Leaves safely, here. We can't guarantee good results during our expedition, but we have to try. Anyone 'in the know' regarding the Path itself (expected resistance, environment?) should come forward with relevant data.
AmalgamationSage, your request for information regarding our 'Friend's' most recent contact point cannot be granted at this point. He's somehow managed to encrypt everything to the point where our own computer specialists can barely make out what state he's in, this time. This last contact was based out of somewhere in Indiana. I'd suggest searching there, but 'Indiana' is a bit vague. That's a lot of ground to cover.
Scott, keep the SitReps coming. Hopefully, our next field commander will be coming in shortly. We can't be without a head in that Department too long. It's never pretty.
