... to discover what happened...

Agent TBQ groaned as he approached his new assigned area, "The Birdcage", he pulled off the side of a hardly traveled road and pulled his scanner out...

The Birdcage, once used as a nuclear warhead storage area during the height of the Cold War. This area gained its nickname from the concrete guard posts dotted around the area that looked like human 'bird cages'. This area was designed to be a small 'post within a post', with its own commissary, barracks, gym, and morale facilities all located within three barbwire fences upon an already controlled military post. Access was highly controlled to the Birdcage, personnel had to have a top secret security clearance for one thing, and not a single person knew every detail about the area. Rumors abounded of the NIA using one or more of the bunkers to store strange equipment left over from clandestine projects. This area is also in close proximity to the city that was called "Red River", home of "an American haunting", which some attributed to being a natural XM power spot... Strange equipment brought here, natural XM power spot... What could possibly go wrong! People high up just had bad ideas, didn't they? After the end of the Cold War, the doors to the bunkers at the Birdcage were welded shut, all of them, and the area generally abandoned. The NIA had decided to assign the area to a single agent to guard what was left behind.

... things looked not right on his scanner. Agent TBQ looked again, just to be sure, XM was abnormally high. He shot an email to his supervisor, "I'll need TNF's last recorded location sent to me ASAP, I am on site".

He put his scanner away and got into his car, turned back onto the road and headed left down into the main loop of the Birdcage. Agent TBQ paused, the roads here had been repaved, they used to be in need of 'repaving', but this area was supposed to be abandoned. The agent continued his drive around the main loop, and he glanced over to a bunker, the door was open...
