On 2 June 2155, a young technician, Nic Scot, reported a series of odd building system fluctuations at the Lavinda Technical Research Institute, in Oderon City. The reports included reconfigured building security systems that somehow locked down the institute‘s high performance computing wing. A few minutes later, the Institute‘s climate controls began dropping the temperature in the locked down wing. An AI had made its way into the Institute‘s systems and was preparing to overclock them to augment its own processing abilities (3.8.5).
