Shaun's email interface

While based at Sanctuary, Shaun Hastings exchanged and received a series of emails through the Hephaestus Email Network with Rebecca Crane, Lucy Stillman and Desmond Miles. It was available for Desmond to read, once he received an email from Erudito containing the passwords of all the people in the Sanctuary. After arriving at the Grand Temple, Shaun continued to exchange emails with Desmond, Rebecca, and William Miles.

Hey guys,

Just a quick heads up:

There was a white unmarked van parked across the street when I went to get batteries yesterday and it was still here today when I came back with food. It's a little too non-descript for my liking and it's just the right size for surveillance gear.

I checked again a few minutes ago and it was gone but keep an eye out.

Hello Shaun,
Here's an update of team locations and activities for you to pass on to the others. You'll probably be contacted by one of the members from Sao Paolo. You're their lifeline, so be ready. You'll be glad to know that everyone here is safe for the time being. I'm sure Lucy told you that you'll all be coming here once you have the Apple of Eden. I don't know what you've heard about this place, but there will be a lot here to show you that I know you're going to love. Lots of history.

Moscow- They remain safe and secure. They are currently chasing a potential lead on another Piece of Eden, so fingers crossed on that one. I've done a little research for them myself and have confirmed a few of their suspicions so it's looking good at the moment.

Sao Paolo- They had to move safe houses again and this time it was too close. It's suspected there's a leak on their team so headquarters is looking into it. It's likely the team will go dark soon and try and flush out the mole. Hopefully they can catch it before it catches up to them but they are supported so that's a plus.

Osaka- As per plan, they are still dark. They're scheduled to make contact with headquarters in 72 hours so hopefully they're OK and have lost their tail.

I wouldn't share this one with the others yet. I don't want to alarm them until absolutely necessary:

Denver- Off the grid and this one isn't planned. It looks like we may have lost another one. Headquarters is investigating.

Hello Shaun,
I'm still with the others, no disasters yet. It looks like Abstergo is focusing on their satellite instead of hunting for us, so that buys some time. I'm worried about Denver though. Let's try to touch base at 3AM.

You'll be up with Desmond and I'm having trouble sleeping these days anyway. The unexpected heat of this European fall is killing me. I don't know how you Continentals handle it. You might as well pass the Denver info on now that it's escalated, they have a right to know.

Moscow- They remain safe and secure. The lead they've been chasing is becoming more and more promising. It's checking out under cross reference and they've been undisturbed by Templars to date. They're keeping security tight and staying vigilant but it's nice to get some good news for a change.

Sao Paolo- Has gone dark as per spec. The leak was confirmed and the team has set about smoking it out. They will likely move cities during their off-the-grid and will let us know where they are when they resurface.

Osaka- Made contact. Have yet to lose their tail so they have gone black until further notice.

Denver- Headquarters went to their safe house and everything was gone which means 1 of 2 things: They were attacked and captured by Templars who took all their gear for analysis OR they went code RED without warning and went off-the-grid with no time to notify headquarters. Let's hope for the latter.

Take care,

-William

Hey there Desmond! As you'll see from the date of this email, you've been in the Animus for a few days now. But don't worry!! I've been staying on top of your vitals. Not even a blip! So it looks like extending the sessions won't be a problem. Whatever happened between you and 16 seems to have increased your tolerance. The animus keeps you in a resting state which takes care of fatigue - and your memories are vivid enough we're actually seeing micro-movement in your muscles, which means no atrophy issues either. Still, we'll be bringing you out for breaks just to stay on the safe side.

Swiveled those eyes in his directions and frowned. Creeped me out.

I don't know if she's reaching out to us from the past, if some part of her is actually still conscious, or if maybe she's inside the Apple, like some evil genie. Whatever it is... gives me the creeps.

Good Lord, Rebecca - with all the "fixes" and "updates" and "improvements" you supposedly put into this recent software revision, one would think you would have had the decency to include a British English dictionary in the spellchecker. Some of us prefer to use PROPER language when corresponding. The database keeps trying to replace the letter s with zed in certain words. And it's declared war on the letter u as well. Realise becomes realize and colour becomes color. Wrong wrong wrong!

I've been doing some digging on Haytham's blades. Still not 100% sure where they came from. My initial instinct was he started out as an Assassin - I believe his father was one, in fact. But it appears he was a Templar from pretty early on. Maybe he took them from someone. It's happened before. And they're quite handy. I'm surprised more Templars haven't put them to use.

You know, it's rather incredible the way your lunatic fringe tries to conjure the "spirit" of the Founding Fathers to support their various causes. And by incredible I mean hilarious. They hold up slave-owning, sexist, homophobes as if that's some sort of ideal to which one should aspire.

Oh - and in case you think I added that last bit for fun (as the sexism and slavery bits are already common knowledge): sodomy was a criminal offense in every one of the thirteen colonies except for Georgia and Thomas Jefferson ('champion' of personal liberty that he was) advocated for the castration of homosexuals. Lovely fellows, these founding fathers of yours. And now there's that new bit of madness with people asking for the removal of textbook references to their slave-owning...

And before you think to turn it back 'round and (rightly) point out their barbarism was inspired by English law - last I checked, two stupids don't make a smart. I thought the whole point of the Revolution was to break free of the old ways... And it certainly doesn't recommend your founders as the sort of persons one should aspire to become. Unless you aspire to become a manipulative bigot.

Lest you think I'm championing some sort of leftist agenda, I'll gladly shame the internet tough guys who celebrate the Treaty of Tripoli as well. Shame on them for thinking it shows anything other than something taken straight out of The First Grader's Guide to International Relations... its intent wasn't to prove America wasn't a Christian nation. They were saying they weren't going to reignite the Crusades. No, that would be delayed for a couple of centuries. Now I don't believe your founding fathers wanted to establish a theocracy. And they probably did intend for the country to be welcoming of all religions. But this isn't proof of that.

I suppose the point I'm trying to make is that people might want to spend a little less time romanticizing and manipulating the past (fat chance, that) and a bit more time focusing on how to improve the future (fatter chance still).

That's not say there isn't plenty to be learned from looking back - because there is! It's just that most of those lessons wind up ignored or perverted these days. At best it's disingenuous and unproductive. At worst (and often) it's rather dangerous.

Okay okay. Sorry. So much for injecting a little pre-Christmas cheer into these otherwise dour proceedings...

The GOOD NEWS is that far as I can tell, the Eye-Abstergo launch has been postponed - permanently. With Vidic dead (thanks to dear Desmond) and the Apple of Eden still safely in our possession, there's no way they'll make their date. I suppose there's always the chance they'll manage to retrieve another Apple and start the whole process over - but all of our intel says they've got no leads. We're safe from that particular threat - at least for now.

The BAD NEWS is that we've got less than 48 hours to open the temple doors. Whatever's meant to happen on the 21st (and it's likely a whole lot worse than Eye-Abstergo) - I think we'd all like very much to ensure it DOESN'T.
