This is probably the email, with which the "Sniper affair" started...
From: Commander Sniper To: The Umpires Date: Sun, 21 Jan 2001 00:54:29 -0000 If what you mean is that it's hard for police officers to infiltrate active player circles, I guess a solution is to "cover up" their death - posting an attempt report instead of the real kill. Of course their assassin would get the kill, and he could go around saying he DID kill the victim and all, but that'd only draw attention... which is all the more useful to the Police F&I!

From: CUPD Chief Sniper To: The Umpires Subject: 9:00am Emma raid Date: Sun, 28 Jan 2001 10:18:27 -0000 I led a small SWAT raid this morning against Simon Ford. After what seemed like ages waiting for Claire to show up at the meeting point, the team decided to go ahead without her. At that point I was beginning to suspect there might be something shady going on between her and Mr Ford, and that it may be a trap after all (just like you suggested), seeing as how Claire has recently seemed quite keen on removing me from the scene. So we proceeded with the utmost caution. Although we knocked on Simon's door several times and waited for quite a while, it was obvious that he was either asleep or just not in.
Then, finally! Hard evidence:
Date: Mon, 29 Jan 2001 13:41:03 +0000 (GMT) From: The Departement for Internal Affairs (DIA) To: The Umpires Subject: Evidence Hi Ed, Here's the mail where Mario said he had thought of a fake SWAT assault. I don't know if it's really incriminating as he says he's going to attack them for real. I think that the fact he didn't shoot Simon when he could have (as he admits it in one of the mails below) is far more incriminating. As is his tentative to corrupt me by assuring me Simon won't attack me or the SWAT officers, the other PCs being "fair game". Not to mention the fact he talked to Johannes about the "benefits of corruption". But i suppose you've already asked Johannes about that. I also wanted to ask you something : as anybody can sign up to be a police officer after the game starts, is it possible for me to recruit a few people i can trust (2/3 maybe 4) ? ----- Original Message ----- From: Sniper Sent: Sunday, January 28, 2001 Subject: We have a situation! > Hmmm.

After the plot was revealed:
From: CUPD Chief Sniper To: The Umpires Subject: Re: Corruption Date: Mon, 29 Jan 2001 09:27:56 -0000 Well, I knew this day would come - didn't expect it to be so soon, but then I wasn't expecting Simon to make such an elementary mistake (with the p'holes), and I certainly wasn't expecting Claire to betray me this quickly once the shit hit the fan. I'm... rather disappointed at both of them. I've contemplated ending my own life, but even if I'm a corrupt, evil, demonic, fascist, baby-eating, shape-shifting, possessed, misguided policeman, I know what makes people tick, and I like it. And if I can make someone's day just by getting killed in a nasty way, well then so be it. By the way, if you ever want the full story, just out of interest, I'll be glad to tell you... Mario
From: Commander Sniper To: The Umpires Date: Mon, 29 Jan 2001 14:47:09 -0000 Thanks for the offer but nah, it's too late to clear my name now. And I wish to honor my pact with Ford, even if the plot has gone pear-shaped. I'm a man of my word, you see... maybe a little dumb, but honourable. In retrospective, I think Garrett has been using me... I had no knowledge of his involvement in this, other than the fact bh234 has been talking to people. Alex and Simon told me they had heard someone speaking to Claire at the time of the attempt, someone who knew the rules very well, but they couldnt identify him. I did suspect either one of you two or, more likely, Garrett, but I didn't give it much importance. Regarding the blackmail plot, I wanted to put the idea into practice, so I basically used the Emma mafia for that, and for a few other things. I gave them the letter idea, I suggested assassination methods, weapons, etc. Basically wanted to get the game going, and wanted there to be a big plot behind all this, not just random killings. And no, nothing of this was planned from last term. The idea only came up when you guys didnt agree to my undercover police request. I had been receiving (and ignoring) corruption offers from Simon, and I only accepted if they were to server as a secret "Black Ops" team for the police. Basically, their job would be to infiltrate and destroy mafias, and corrupt PCs. In exchange, I was to supply them with information, and keep them safe from the police if they made a slip. Simon's fuck-up changed the story completely though. By the time I could reach him to tell him to keep a low profile, and try to redeem himself by killing his own targets (and other wanted criminals the Emma team would have to create via blackmail), he had already killed some cops. He says you kinda pushed him into that, to see the new rule put to good use. So I told him that he could kill any policemen except Claire and the SWAT team (Ribena, Editor, and Bud White). But the email only reached him just after his attempt on her (he doesnt have a mobile phone or a computer in his room). At that point, Claire, who knew about this, must have lost all trust in me, and removed all support. To make matters worse, Alex and Simon came to see me that night... I managed to catch them by surprise and disarm them, but even before that they were true to their pact and didn't even move a finger to attack me. During the following 48 hours, I had to: (a) get Claire out of the way (b) dispose of Simon (c) keep to my pacts and hope the situation would solve itself (eg Simon getting killed by a player) I didn't get any chances at option a (Claire didnt turn up to the SWAT raid), and frankly I wasn't sure that was a good way to go. I consider(ed) Claire a friend and would not have liked to betray her. About the SWAT raid... I did not actually warn the Emma mafia we were going, believe it or not. I wrote the email but never sent it... if I had had the chance, I might as well have shot Simon at that point - he was ceasing to be useful. On the other hand, I secretly hoped he wasn't in. Regarding Nordstrom, I didn't at all mean to intimidate him with my words, I was just trying to evaluate how loyal he would be (apparently not very!), in case I had to have Claire killed or something. The killing of Ribena was a misfortune, and I think it has more to do with the fact he lives near Simon than with anything else (save perhaps the Kenny award). All other non-SWAT policemen were fair game. Basically, I'm (was) trying to promote gameplay as an ongoing big story, as opposed to a random series of killings. The idea behind SWAT teams is they're loyal, and I can use them to steer the political happenings, and such. So I've been to Q Staircase, Emma, on the afternoon before the game started, to talk to Simon & Co: DEfM, Pilchard, Alex, The Unusual Suspect. Basically they formed my Black Ops team, who would perform any illegal actions I needed. I wish I could have gotten Shepherd to be the SWAT Commander though. He told me he wasn't playing... but is he? I'm not killing Ford unless it's in a duel. He hasn't betrayed me and I'm not going to betray him. In fact, it's Claire and Nordstrom who, in my opinion, deserve a bullet to the skull. I can't really blame them for covering their own asses, but I'm still disgusted. Oh by the way, this is a copy of an e-mail I sent to Ribena: --------------------- Original Message ------------------------ > Ok then, so would you care to tell me the full story now? Aye. Not much more harm can be done now. Before the start of the game, I asked the umpires whether I could have a secret police force, which would then infiltrate mafias etc. I was denied ths request. At around that time, I received a series of emails from Simon in which he was prodding me to assess my potential level of corruption. I hadn't been paying much attention to these, but after the umpires denied me of my little toy spies, I did strike a deal with Simon, whereby he and his friends would serve as a Black Ops police division, to carry out the dirty work. I gave them ideas and help with eliminating their own victims, and they in turn would strike any target I asked. The deal worked well until Simon made a mistake and was made wanted - that put me in an awkward position. But his attempt on Claire and his murder of the first couple of policemen was just too much. Soon after that happened, he and Bud White knocked on my room... I feared they were going to kill me too, so I hid and jumped at them just as they were retreating again. I disarmed them and we talked. Apparently they had only come in peace, to inform me of the situation. Simon was willing to continue with the deal, but unfortunately the umpires were urging him to kill all cops. I told him he could kill players, and then kill them again as they became policemen, but that he should stay away from both CoPs and the SWAT Team. Why he did kill you I don't know... might have something to do with the Kenny Award, methinks. I let them go without killing them - my greatest mistake so far, except perhaps letting Claire know about it. Originally, all communications regarding this deal had been verbal, so there was no evidence she could present to the umpires. As time went by, and events unfolded, I became careless and committed such sensitive information to writing. And Claire was very quick to report me to the umpires when the shit hit the fan... so quick that they suggested I kill her to hide the evidence. The umpires are annoyed at me for breaking just about every single rule regarding the Police. But the job of "legal" CoP is, with the possible exception of being a standard PC, the most boring thing you can imagine. But having a say... having some control over the political situation... having to decide whom to trust and whom not to (and I admittedly made a mess of this one)... that feels good. It's the most fun I've ever had playing assassins, and if I had the opportunity to go back and change a single thing, it'd be having told Claire. I'm sorry about all the charade last night. But I'm sure you can understand that. About Simon killing you... that was a breach of the contract, it shouldn't have happened. I specifically ordered that you and Editor were to be left alone. Editor has betrayed me too, by the way (even though he didnt actually know anything about this, I did make some other comments to him that he wasn't meant to repeat, especially to the umpires), so he's fair game now. In fact I've asked Simon to send both him and Claire my regards. I wonder who'll be the first to die... Editor? Claire? Simon? or me? Oh well... enough ranting for now. Thank you and have a nice day. Mario --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Retrospectively, I think my mistakes can be summed up as one: Trusting both Claire and Simon at the same time. Anyways, I hope this somewhat changes your view of what happened. I'm still very guilty, but in a slightly different way... Thank you and have a VERY nice day. Mario

Step 6: be VERY suspicious when the card does not immediately fall open slightly after the envelope has been opened, this suggests poison inside the card. Step 7: check for poison on the outside of the card -- if negative, remove card from envelope. Step 8: to my assassin -- IF YOU GLUE THE CARD TOGETHER, NO-ONE IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO OPEN IT IN ORDER TO BECOME POISONED!!! Step 9: if you still want to open the card in order to perhaps find a clue about your assassin, do so using the un-poisoned lip of the card, gloves or tweezers. Step 10: you could, of course avoid all of the above, and put any suspicious looking cards straight in the bin!
