Transylvania, 2026. Humans and vampires have been cohabitating for centuries now: the former occupy the day and the latter, the night. However, over the course of the last month, many witnesses claim to have seen vampires wandering about… in broad daylight. If true, the human race would be in grave danger. Agent 004 was dispatched to the “Rhesus Lounge”, a well-known vampire bar, to investigate. But she has not been heard of since…

Your team inherits the file. You go to the Rhesus. In plain clothes, you sip on a “zombie” while observing the fauna… until you feel your eyelids grow heavy and… Blackout. When you awaken, to your horror, you discover that you are hand-cuffed in the lounge’s cold room…

You have 1 hour until the owner returns, to gather as much information as possible and escape.

1 hour only. Otherwise… Lights out, this will be your last call.

Washington.

April 18, 2024.

 

Alejandro Florez, age 32, son of a Peruvian Embassy delegate, has been reported missing for the past 3 weeks. Surveillance cameras, however, detected him 4 days ago in front of an abandoned warehouse in the north of the city, where he seems to be living free. The police can do nothing in this matter, since there is no law to prevent a man from disappearing. The State department has therefore requested a discreet intervention.

 

The man has been placed under surveillance: he seems to only go out to run errands. During his next outing, an agent will be charged with creating a diversion.

 

You have one hour… to enter the premises and shed some light on this matter.

April 2050.

Global warming has caused a large crack to open in the ice of the Antarctic. A team of paleontologists charged with collecting samples on-site has found a strange futuristic building in the depths of the crack. The ancient Greek writings found on its façade and carbon dating suggest the unimaginable: could this be a pavillion… from the mythical city of Atlantis? 

 

In spite of all the precautions that were taken, vibrations from the machines used to open the main door have caused a wall to collapse. The precarious balance of the ice has been disturbed. All will be buried in the next 6 hours, maybe less.

 

You have one hour to solve the mystery of this enigmatic structure.

Paris, November 19, 2022: The French security services arrested a man who was trying to break into the Élysée to speak urgently to the president. The man claims to come from the future and said that terrorists, who left on November 19, traveled in time until 2522, to detonate a bomb triggering the Apocalypse.

 

Interpol is formal, the man is not listed anywhere. But what is even stranger is that an intrusion was reported at the same time in the old workshop of Sebastian Trithemus, an inventor and scientist of the Middle Ages, who claimed to have made a machine to go back in time. According to the cameras, a group of individuals has broken in... and has never come  out.

 

Your team is asked to shed light on this case.

 

Tempus fugit ... Time is running out. It may be a matter of saving the future of humanity.
