THE STORY SO FAR...
CASE INARI, 69°N-28°E
It all began in 2005. Finnish newspapers started appearing with the headlines “Reindeer race gets out of control” or “Occurrences at Russian-Finnish border”. All of them reported mysterious goings-on in northern Finland. In the same year Microcern, a global player in the armament industry, started an expedition to Lake Inari in Finland. The company’s research section cooperates with the most reputable scientists and institutes all over the world. One of these scientists is Dr. Erik Johan Dale.
ERIK JOHAN DALE
Erik Johan Dale was a child prodigy of his time and jumped many classes. In 1991, at just 22 years old, he became the youngest doctoral student ever at his university. He studied for his doctorate in molecular physics at the University of Oslo. His research work in the area of quantum chromodynamics provided the first decisive impulses on the theory of the strong interaction (‘elastic band’ effect), which were eventually considered for a Nobel Prize in 2004.
So he joined the expedition on behalf of Microcern. For many years he has been collecting reports on the area in and around Lake Inari, 69°N 28°E in Northern Finland. He found out that the number of unusual occurrences is increasing there. These incidents all appear to be concentrated around Lake Inari. During the expedition the Scandinavian research team suffered a mysterious setback. Dr. Erik Johan Dale from the institute for biogeochemistry curiously disappeared.
Nobody knows what happened, but it seems abundantly clear that this incident relates to the discovery of an unknown material with unbelievable powers. Inside a subterranean glacier Microcern’s divers detected a blue-glowing substance which could not be found in the table elements. ROCCAT tracked the research activities of Microcern and recognised the potential of the unknown material called Aimo. They then obtained the material from the hands of the armory manufacturer.
03 DECEMBER 2005, JOURNAL ENTRY
“My expectations have been exceeded. It is unbelievable, of all things, right now so shortly… And that’s the reason why I can’t make any more entries. I still don’t notice any physical changes… Please do not come searching for me…”
Since this strange entry we haven’t heard anything from the scientist who was one of the first people to encounter the mysterious material called Aimo. Our agents all over the world tried to track him down after he had disappeared from the expedition at Lake Inari. We discovered that he underwent examination at a hospital near Oslo, Norway, but the anaesthetist who performed the physical examination of him was found dead at his home two weeks later. The police report mentioned tragic circumstances which did not rule out suicide.
That was in summer 2006. Then, on November 1st in 2007, quite abruptly, a fax from Dr. Erik Johan Dale reached the ROCCAT Headquarters in Hamburg...
Stay tuned for new information on what happened to Dr. Erik Johan Dale and help us to locate him.
The secret is not revealed yet...
