Location: New Babbage Municipal Watertower (Wheatstone Waterways, Northeast corner)

On 22 January I was contacted by Ms Viv Trafalgar. She said that subjects unknown had attacked and destroyed the city water tower in Wheatstone Waterways. She said that she felt there had been an explosion and wanted to retain the agency in an investigative capacity to make inquiries as to what actually happened.

I arrived at the location and found that the tower had been largely destroyed. The roof section and the glass top of the tower was sitting very close to the center of where the tower had been standing. The main body of the town was thrown directly east and now sits on the bottom of the North/south canal that borders Wheatstone and the Canal district. The tower supports were thrown down in a pattern to the south, north, and northeast of where they were originally located. The damage appeared to have been caused by a solid iron projectile approximately 1 meter in diameter, identical to the projectile that struck the Kahruvel Steamworks. The projectile had been covered by some of the wreckage and was discovered after the initial survey of the scene. The projectile was a solid shot, and the on-site analysis did not reveal any explosive content to the shell. Had the shell been explosive in nature the wreckage would have been far more scattered and broken apart than what I observed at the scene. After doing a brief analysis of the damage pattern and the impact crater, it appears that the shell was fired from the Northwest corner of Wheatstone Waterways, and at a much shallower angle than the shell that struck the steamworks. If the projectile was dropped from the air, the carrier craft was moving at a higher rate of speed than the round described previously.

The shell itself was spherical and does not conform to any known projectile due to its size. No known cannon has a bore of that size that I am aware of or under current production. Because my lab is currently not equipped to analyze samples taken at the scene, I have sent the materials I collected to a lab outside of the city.

This is the second attack on the city infrastructure of New Babbage from outside forces who seem intent on causing civil and economic disruptions, and damaging the critical facilities of the city.

Location: Kahruvel Steamworks (corner of Brunel's Railway and Jefferson Place, Babbage Square. Southwest quadrant)

On 18 January I was contacted by Dr Augustus Dayafter in reference to an explosion at the Kahruvel Steamworks. I arrived at the location and found that the building was damaged on the northeast corner. The building had sustain a great deal of damage at that location. The damage appeared to have been caused by a solid iron projectile approximately 1 meter in diameter. The projectile was lodged in the floor of the plant, and given the location and the angle of entry the impact was on a near vertical line. The projectile was a solid shot, and the on-site analysis did not reveal any explosive content to the shell. My estimation is that the shell struck within 10 degrees of vertical, so it was either fired as a high angle shot much like a mortar round, or dropped from the air by a slow moving airship. The impact threw a section of the roof onto the rail line, and created a very large cone of damage down to the lower floor. The baseline estimate I calculated is that the shell, if fired from the ground, originated in the extreme northeast corner of Port Babbage.

The shell itself was spherical and does not conform to any known projectile due to its size. No known cannon has a bore of that size that I am aware of or under current production. Because my lab is currently not equipped to analyze samples taken at the scene, I have sent the materials I collected to a lab outside of the city.

The owner of the facility was unavailable for interview at the time of the preliminary investigation.

My concern is that this may constitute an attack on New Babbage from outside forces intent on compromising the city infrastructure, and causing civil and economic disruptions.

While this is currently not an official investigation of the agency, I am monitoring the situation
