We really shouldn't let the cat out of the bag ... especially while out on the ocean, as you know, cat's generally aren't fans of the sea ... but the truth serum's kicking in and what the heck, here goes.
Your involvement in the weekend's nefarious activities depends on just how dirty you want to get your hands or risk your neck. You may elect to observe from the sidelines and wire your findings to Interpole. Or you may choose to dabble in espionage here and there throughout the weekend, no real harm done if 'the other guy' gets the microchip. Or perhaps you are in the position that you dare not show your face on dry land without that microchip in your possession.
The choice is yours, as is the experience. Those who opt to 'play a part' in the intrigue will receive code names and personas to protect their identities.
