The Mystery Solvers team finally realized they were on a wild goose chase and redirected their efforts back to the Investigative Commissions office where a conversation was over heard:
"So Mr Green, your team searched the freighter and obtained all the information there?"
"Hmm I see you brought a handful of documents?"
"There weren't any other items of interest in the holds of the freighter?"
"Did you search the Holds??"
So the MS team was dispatched back to the freighter to search the rest of the ship for any more informative items that might be found.
Entering from the south side of the docks the MS agents quickly found Cultists trying to recover items from the blasted truck and added to its carnage total with another grenade!
MS agent "Sarge" advances to put down covering fire only to run into danger!
The explosions alert the Cultist work crew on board the freighter, some running to the rails and opening fire.
Shooting and fighting steadily sees the cultists taken down in the stern section while in the forward holds a pack of cultists have one armed guard open up on an Agent with a burst of SMG fire!
Back on the dock, an MS agent, from a distance sees Sister Painful pull a small box from her utility belt, press a button on it and toss it into the river, turn and walk away............Whats this????
Back on board an MS agent in the engine room (passes a cunning check) notices a loud ticking noise, turns and spots a large crate with a ticking countdown timer!!!!!
Shouts to "FINISH THE SEARCH" ring out, Agents scramble, but those dastards have set multiple charges, which start going off one after the other. Team Leader bolts up top and to the chart room where he finds one last item he grabs successfully, vaults the rail and onto the dock as the ship bottom blows out and it lists heavily before bottoming out.
Rallying back at the headquarters the team assembles what they have learned about items on the ship. Some sort of curved hull plating, a ground screwdrive propulsion system, gigantic auger blades and a periscope assembly...............what the devil are they up to??
