To say I'm disappointed would be an understatement. Black Water has decided not to pursue any more sites on our behalf. I told them, at the outset, that the Alps were not a good target, that there were better ones elsewhere, but the Alps were close and accessible and not a potential war-zone or underwater. Better to pursue an easy target if it might yield success than pursue a hard target that's a better target, but which might fail. That was their reasoning so far as I can tell anyway.
I got a call from some anonymous worker bee at Black Water and a very tersely worded apology regarding any future targets. Then I read what actually happened after my Canadian friends visited the Alps. Basically Executor happened, and I'm really pissed about it. I fully believe that if Executor had kept his long nose out of my research, Black Water might have continued to look into some of the other sites I suggested. At least it would have helped me cross some off my list, whether they continued to pursue the cheap and local options or not. It's a darn sight better than I can do considering my limited funds and mobility.
So... now what do I do? Any Indiana Jones types interested in traveling on their own dime to parts exotic to see if they can find ancient relics to help in our fight? All I can promise is danger both mundane and supernatural and possible disappointment as well.
Better than sitting on your hands and doing nothing though, right?
