[01:17:22] Holy shit, never ask me for anything again, this was tough.
1972, sometime in March, a black-out took out power in half the city for upwards of three hours. A cause was never determined at the time. Considering its location to an active portal, it was about one of three incidents that made sense.
Cross-reference that with real estate in the area, and there's one run-down house outside of Shibuya that seems suspect. Ownership's never changed since 1965, but its got the works: overgrown greenery cut once in a blue moon by the government, condemned signs, the works. Just be glad no-one's tried to buy it or it would have been long gone. The coordinates are as follows.
Its slim, but there's a chance.
'There's a chance'.
This lead, that had cost a British spirit wielder about fifty hours of her time, a fair bit of her sanity, and potentially a screwed up hard drive, had led Cassandra to the outskirts, a good fifteen minutes outside Shibuya. Here, there was the occasional proper house - and unfortunately, this part of town never really kicked off. It wasn't a high-crime area, but unfortunate problems with infrastructure in the area made it difficult to maintain, several property owners abandoning it in the mid '80s.
Perhaps Cassandra would know the story more than most, but they were here for one property in particular. It was a corner lot at the back of a street, its yard filled with sour-looking weeds and a slight foul scent that seemed to waft from the inside.
"... Of course, you guys would need me along for this in the end..." Emma gave a sigh, cracking her knuckles as she sat at a discontinued bus stop in wait. Despite a cane off to her side and braces around her knees, it seemed that the tech expert still brought a backpack full of equipment for this.
And why not? It was about time to see how one even tried to hack the Digital World.
