Dear Neils, I have some amazing news to tell you. We've found something amazing in the ruins. We thought for sure this was the right place, but it is completely beyond anything we could have imagined.
The monastery dates back to the 9th century, yet this discovery could be older, far older.
I can't say much, but I promise to be in Paris next week. See you there.

Using ordinary memo, can't risk using the net. Some guys in suits were asking questions about you and me. I'm worried Neils, they were parked outside the museum last week, and my house last night! They drove off when they saw me looking.
They want the artefact.
I can't be sure, but they mentioned "foreigners" in a strange way when they were asking me about you. I don't think they were talking about you not being French.

They came!! Last night they came and they took it. I was right there and they took it. I don't know what they want it for, but they took it!!
What on Earth do the CyberAgents want with an ornamental sword from the 9th century?
I can't believe they took it!!
This started life as a heavily modified version of the Gold CyberAgent2.0. However, unlike the Zero updates, I felt the time was right to add a new member to the team.
No fiction yet (I'm going to try and spend a little time adding to Part 07 first). Actually yes there is some fiction, see above for more details.
What I will say is, that sword plays a large part in the story....
(Actually it isn't EXACTLY the same sword but it is constructed along similar lines). I'm going to play a little fast and loose with past continuity here, since this is a new reality I'm telling the story in.
Like Zero, the sword isn't native to the CyberAgent2.0 universe. But I'll say no more.
