Dorian Gray,  happy 50th birthday! You are going to spend the day with Mark
and Kareen as they tour the remains of Old Impsec as they plan to renovate
it. Fortunately, they hire a few assistants to walk ahead of all three of
you, because there are still a few little surprises down there (everyone
skips the chem lab and the cold room for experts in moon suits, though some
of that stuff is pretty valuable if recovered in a stable state. But Mark
already has an Arrangement with Simon for some of the *really* exotic
items). However, there are stops for snacks with Ma Kosti type recipes, so
no one faints with hunger along the way. It's really interesting to walk
through the mud-covered and slightly pancaked building, and you are allowed
to take your own video for at least parts of it (your Impsec escort, didn't
I mention him? Well, he's pretty insistent on having some parts cleared by
Impsec first, even if Mark is related to an Auditor). You stop for lunch,
which is a very good one, and there is a great birthday feast for you in a
local restaurant. Oh, and you're allowed to pick through some of the
salvaged gear for souvenirs. I don't know what you'll do with the dart

Happy Birthday!!!
