The Spy's Guide to Survival in the Sewers
The sewers in Insomnia are a terrible maze, no thanks to the folks at
Town Planning. As far as we know, no one has yet attempted to map the labyrinthine
mess, although agents deployed to serve as "sewer rats" are thoroughly
familiar with each sewer level. The Rebel faction, being mostly composed
of disgruntled househusbands, chauvinistic ex-journalists and broadcasters
are naturally predisposed towards the faeces-choked sewer environment and
have practised guerilla warfare quite successfully in the past against
i.e the "Sewer Rats" should not hesitate to kill enemy agents
with the regulation steel knife provided by the Loyalist Forces.
- Always have your ID (identification) papers with you. In the event
that you are challenged in the sewers to declare your identity, always
make sure you are dealing with our trusted agent and not a Rebel spy.
Be ready to produce your ID papers for perusal if a Loyalist agent stops
you in the sewers.
- Should you encounter a Rebel agent in the sewers, exterminate them
using the standard issue steel dagger in the way that you have been trained.
- Always conceal your steel dagger in your cloak or coat; to quickly
disembowel a Rebel agent, thrust the dagger into his lower abdomen and
make a quick L-shaped motion.
- If you are caught by Rebel agents with documents pertaining to national
security in your possession, swallow these documents at once. Destroy any
decoding gadgets in your possession. Only reveal your name and serial number.
- In the sewers, communication between Loyalist agents is carried out
entirely in code. The codewheel is meant to be used with the Loyalist Spy
Ring Codebook issue #43215. Guard this codewheel and codebook with your
- Always wear your visor at all times in the sewers. This regulation
visor improves vision and enables you to see more clearly in the sewers
where sight-obscuring fumes (mostly non-toxic) are almost always present.
