Gas Attack

Prologue

Louis sat in his basement, surrounded by pipes and chemicals. He was a man on a mission, determined to create a neurotoxic gas-bomb.

He had been researching and gathering materials for months, and now it was finally time to put all of his hard work to the test. He carefully measured out the chemicals and mixed them together, following the instructions he had found online.

As he worked, Louis couldn’t help but feel a sense of fear and excitement. He knew that what he was doing was dangerous, and that there would be consequences if he was caught. But he was determined to see his plan through to the end.

Finally, after what felt like an eternity, the bomb was complete. Louis carefully placed it in a backpack and made his way out of the basement.

He knew that he had to be careful from here on out. He had to get the bomb to its intended target without being caught. But he was confident that he had what it took to succeed.

As he left the house, Louis couldn’t help but feel a sense of pride and accomplishment. He had done something that few others would have the courage to do. And he knew that, no matter what happened, he would always be remembered for this moment.


Briefing

Greetings, Special Agent K. We have an urgent and very grim scenario on our hands. About 20 minutes ago, we received word from one of our red teams, that theyโ€™ve uncovered plans on the dark-web to test a new neuro-toxic gas on an undisclosed city.

The groupโ€™s name has not yet been uncovered, but is believed to operate decentralized online, sharing the same ideal in the radical right spheres. Over the past months, weโ€™ve observed talks and discussions, glorification of and finally concrete plans to build a dirty bomb.

As of today, our HUMINT team was able to infiltrate partial circles of the group. Our Red Team was able to pull images from the browser cache of the member our HUMINT team was in contact with.

The image reveals a city, which is believed to be the testing ground for the dirty bomb. We still do not have a time-frame for the attack, all we know is that the amount of gas will cost hundreds of people their lives. Not to mention the suffering ending caused by the gas itself.

Our priorities are to find out more about the group, this is done in collaboration with EUROPOL, hence our main task is finding the location of the city. We hope the realization that the location of their plans has leaked, will cause some of the members to make a bad move.

Your task is to locate the city in the image below.

As always, Special Agent K. The contract is yours, if you choose to accept.
