Ladies in Hades and the Dyval Wears Prada
North American Hatch
In the wilderness somewhere north-west of Tolkeen was a submerged lab, visible from ground level only as a hatch. The lab was abandoned some time ago but at one point appeared to host several people – very possibly Coalition! A large number of techno-wizard items were found within, including a Tolkeen Iron Juggernaut! A network of computer servers stored all the data the scientists had recorded but upon their destruction a siren blared and the hatch locked shut. The techno-wizard items laying around were grabbed in haste as the adventuring group escaped but the Iron Juggernaut remained.
About one thousand miles inland from the Russian city of Minsk, there was another hatch with eerie similarities to the North American one. This hatch had been abandoned in a more orderly fashion and there was little left of value. The computer hard drives were recovered from the computers. The hatch contained pre-Rifts serial numbers, and it appeared that the Sovietsky had been using it to conduct secret magic/TW research, complete with a gutted Iron Juggernaut! A note indicated the Juggernaut had been provided by their allies in North America.
