The party member’s second day at work is very similar to the first, although they are starting to get a feel for the job now. After all, there isn’t a lot to learn – it’s not rocket science.
After a long day, they all meet up at the guards’ canteen to compare notes.
“I think that one of these pick ups could be taking place in four days’ time,” Will whispers to the others, “On 002. I saw a message about an ATV arriving to collect prisoners and to have at least two ‘problems’ waiting for pickup.”
The party members ponder the situation, trying to figure out what might be going on here – exactly what the motive might be for taking the prisoners away. They also try to figure out how they might be able to hitch a ride on the ATV when they already know that the ATV always comes with its own ‘special’ guards rather than using those from this prison.
“Is there any way that we could rig up some sort of a tracking device to the ATV?” asks Will.
“Hmmmmmm,” ponders Grim, scratching his rugged jawline. “I remember seeing that they have a backup transmitter in the stores. With a few hours with the pieces and a soldering iron, I’m pretty sure that I can rig up a low frequency transmitter.”
“Someone would need to smuggle it out and get under the hood of the ATV to attach it to the battery so that it was constantly powered up for a long period. And then we would need to track it from at least two sources so that we could find its position by triangulation.”
“It’s a long shot, but I think it might work.”
The party members decide that it is their best chance of tracking the ATV and so Grim agrees to try and make the transmitter the following day.
Having exhausted the opportunities for entertainment at the prison already, the party members have an early night.
