Situation: Victim01 and Victim02 work in a cash/credit transaction office. The two friends share an office in the tax department when Victim01 leaves for the storage department to get more paper for the printer at 700 hours-17 minutes. At 700 hours-33 minutes, Victim02 becomes worried and goes to check on him. Both Victims had discovered a maintenance door that wasn’t there previously. Reportedly, Victim01 entered 18-9-6-20 and was shocked to find a seemingly endless, infinitely high, warehouse complex. At 700 hours-53 minutes, Witness01 went to investigate, and found Victim02 stumbling out of the Vault with numerous cuts and bruises, shouting, “THEY KILLED *Data Extracted*! THEY’RE AFTER ME! HELP ME SHUT THIS THING!”. After slamming the Vault shut, Witness01 and Victim02 immediately notified the police.

“Victim02: CAN YOU JUST TELL ME WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON!?!?
Det. Mitchell: Please just calm down, okay? If you stay cal-
V2: CALM DOWN!? HOW DO YOU EXPECT ME TO CALM DOWN WHEN I JUST SAW MY FRIEND GET MURDERED BY WHATEVER THAT THING WAS!?!?
DM: I know this is hard to understand-
V2: *Stands Up* YOU THINK!?!?
DM: If you WILL LET ME FINISH I can explain.
V2: Fine. Explain away.
DM: Okay. When entering that door, also known as the Vault, you entered Anomaly 18-9-6-20 the Rift.
V2: So? What the heck does that mean?
DM: You and Victim01-
V2: STOP CALLING HIM THAT! His name is *Data Extracted*!
DM: I need you to understand, we are not trying to demean either of you. The Classification is merely used to protect you.
V2: …What do you mean?
DM: In using the Classification, we protect you from being publicized and targeted by the paparazzi or someone trying to glean information about this place.
V2: *Threateningly* I don’t need your protection. *At This Point Victim02 Pulled Out A .38 Caliber Pistol*
DM: *Pulls Out His Own Automatic* *Shouting To The Guards* HOLD YOUR FIRE! Please. Let’s just put the gun down and talk like civilized people.
V2: Civilized? *Laughs* You call this civilized? I watched my friend get killed in that freaky physics breaking funhouse, and I’M the one being treated like a CRIMINAL! *Laughs Insanely*
DM: *Raises His Weapon* I’m not going to say it again. Put. The. Gun. Down.
V2: *Continues Laughing* You act like you can control me, like reality still exists. What is reality if stuff like THAT can just HAPPEN. There IS NO REALITY. Nothing matters in the end. *Laughs Once Again* All that matters is that, in the end, we…all…die.”
Victim02 was quickly detained and sent to a mental institution. Witness01 was interviewed later, and was a lot more compliant.
Audio Prompt #02 800 hours-62 minutes
“Witness01: So that door thingy is like a…portal or something, to this place called the Rift?
Det. Mitchell: Basically. And now, we need you to recount everything you remember about the incident.
W01: Alright. It was about 7:53, when I went down to…what do you guys call it, the Vault? Anyway, earlier *Data Extracted* had told me his buddy was taking a while down in storage so he was going to go check on him. A while later, I was on my coffee break and I thought I should go check on the guys to make sure everything was okay, but when I looked in their office, they weren’t there. Now it was my turn to do the investigating. I was walking down to storage when I heard *Data Extracted* call out for help. Immediately, I started running. When I got to the Vault, *Data Extracted* was running at me shouting ‘They killed him!’ or something and when I looked behind him, I saw…I’m not sure WHAT it is. It looked sorta human, but skinny and burnt like it had been through a fire. He got out safely and said ‘Help me shut this!’. Once we had, I looked at him and said ‘What the heck was that!’. He said ‘I don’t know, but it killed *Data Extracted*’. So then we called the police and you guys showed up.
DM: Interesting. This information will really help further investigation, thank you for your time.
W01: No problem. Oh, by the way, what happened to *Data Extracted*?
DM: He’ll be fine. He just kinda cracked under pressure. After pulling a gun on me we had to sedate him.
W01: Huh? But…all the guards here have guns.
DM: We have a covert agent with a tranquilizer just in case.”
Witness01 was released later with a minor reward for compliance and keeping the situation quiet. Further exploration of the Rift revealed the mutilated body of Victim01. The PITF recovered the body and sent a condolence, consultation, and negotiation check to the family of Victim01. Four sites have been revealed and sealed off to the general public. END DATA FILE #1

Situation: Victim03 and Victim04 were both assigned to the storage area to take stock and sort out the supplies. After moving a few boxes, Victim03 found the Vault. After alerting Victim04, Victim03 convinced Victim04 to go with him to investigate. Victim03 takes out his phone and begins to record the endeavor.
Audio Prompt #3 600 hours-56 minutes
“Victim03: Come on, it’ll be fun.
Victim04: I don’t know man, it says Authorized Personnel Only.
V3: So what? Come on.
V4: Ugh. Fine.
*700 hours-12 minutes*
V3: That doesn’t even begin to describe it.
V4: Why the heck is there no ceiling?! We are right under the office. There should be a ceiling, not infinite darkness with lights hanging down!
V3: This place is freaking me out. Let’s get out of here.
V4: Agreed. …Where’s the exit?
*700 hours-48 minutes*
V3: *Pant* *Pant* WHERE IS THE EXIT?!
V4: I DON’T KNOW! *Pant* *Pant*
*Both Victims Stop Running*
V3: I don’t want to know. Come on.
*Both Keep Running*
*800 hours-36 minutes*
V4: KEEP GOING, DON’T LOOK BACK!!!
V3: I’M RUNNING, I’M RUNNING, I’M RUNNING!!!
V3: THAT THING IS GETTING CLOSER!!!
V4: KEEP GOING, I SEE THE DOOR!!!
*Both Victims Jump For The Door*
V3: CLOSE IT, CLOSE IT, CLOSE IT, CLOSE IT!!!
*They Slam The Door Shut*
V3: That thing can’t get through can it?
V4: I don’t want to find out.
Victim04 ends the feed and notifies the authorities. Both were questioned and yielded the same story. Upon investigation of the Vault, the door was open and the creature was clawing at a seemingly invisible barrier. It has since been discovered that certain Entities cannot exit the Rift.
