MECHANIST TECHNOLOGY 

This device is now configured for thee so that the managers of the warehouse 

mayst easily enter any tenant's area at any time. When thou wishest to open 

such a locked area, thou must needst enter the four numerals of its address 

into this keyed device. When thou hast entered the correct number, see that 

it shalt display on the dials to thy left - this shalt cause the large green 

bay door of thy desired area to open. Thou mayst only open one door at one 

time, and if thou open another door, the first shalt close. If thou hast any 

questions, direct them at once to me.

I was recently contracted by the Mechanists to develop special lenses for 

them. I just received a small shipment of rare and valuable Addonizio Crystal 

for this purpose. For security reasons, I would like to request the installation 

of a metal face into my area within the next week. I don't have the funds to 

replace the crystals if they get stolen, and I hear Mechanists can be unforgiving.

The last year has been very interesting. The Hammerites used to be my 

most profitable contract. I've been making weapons for them since I went 

into business, but now I rarely make anything for them. Their orders started 

to fall off about a year ago, and I became concerned about my future finances. 

My concerns didn't last very long because I was contracted by the new City Watch 

to produce their swords and armor. The only problem I have now is I have 

nowhere to put all these old hammers that I got stuck with.

STATE OF GILVER EXPORTING COMPANY 

Our shipment to be exported overseas to Governor Horridge is ready. It is 

waiting over in Gilver's area and will be shipped out tomorrow afternoon. 

Having to replace last month's shipment that was lost at sea is putting the 

company in serious financial trouble. Gilver took out a loan from the First 

City Bank and Trust to cover the extra expenses. If we don't increase profits 

next month then we won't have enough money to stay in business. Fortunately, 

we just received an unexpected order this morning, and this will bring in 

some extra money that we can use to pay back the loan. I just had a new batch 

of shipping labels printed out, and I will bring them over to Gilver in the morning.

JOURNAL ENTRY # 4279 

I don't know what is happening to my business. Every attempt to gain extra 

profit only leads me to more loss. On paper, every business plan that I devise 

with Bramrich seems flawless, but in practice, they always fall through. Last 

month's overseas export to Governor Horridge was supposed to make us rich, but 

the ship never made it to its destination. I suspect piracy. I had to take out 

a loan just to cover last month's losses. I was hoping to have this reshipment 

to the Governor out the door two days ago, but my workers seem to have a hard time 

toting that barge and lifting that bale when I really need them. I would fire them 

all in a second, but I wouldn't be able to find anyone to work for what little I 

can afford to pay. I just finalized the Governor's shipment, and I had my secretary 

run over to Bramrich's office to grab the shipping label so that it can be attached 

to the outgoing crate. I'm going over to the Crippled Burrick for a drink, then it's 

back here for more paperwork.

Building B, third floor

M02B07 location

Profits for our dockside warehouses have been tremendous ever since my brother 

Jason convinced me to let the Mechanists use Building-B for their needs. They have 

taken over and converted all four storage bays to contain their machinery and incoming 

cargo. This has really hurt my shipping contracts. I lost 12 contracts recently 

because the cargo had to be stored outside instead of the now occupied storage bays. 

Mechanists are now using my work force to move their cargo and assist in their 

various projects, and I have barely any workers left to handle my remaining contracts. 

They have more than compensated us for our losses, but still, they worry me. They 

threatened me harm when I refused to evict Gonzalez, one of the longtime tenants of 

Building-A, so one of their inventors could set up a machine shop. The new machine 

shop happens to be right under my poor brother's office, and he's been complaining about 

the noise constantly. I guess I should be happy about the money the Mechanists are 

paying me, but I feel like they are taking over and I don't even get a say as to what 

happens on my own property anymore.

Hide the spice in the usual location, and take your payment.

CAPTAIN'S LOG

Make port we did at Rampone's Dockside Shipping. No safe harbor, 

this, but the reward is surely worth the risk. We need to unload the 

spice right quick and stash it among the crates inside that Building-B. 

Our cut of the bounty should be in the safe inside Osterlind's office, as usual. 

I'll stash the spice while the crew unloads Rampone's cargo. 

I'm eager to cast off and set sail for our rendezvous point, where 

we can join with Captain Carr's sloop. From there it's on to the 

hunting grounds -- that fool Gilver continues to send out unarmed 

merchantmen, just ripe for the plunderin'.

Our tenant, Lucky Selentura, has not paid his rent in quite a while. No one has 

seen him for weeks, and I've seen wanted posters in the city streets with his picture 

on it lately. I've been suspicious of him for quite a while, and I'd bet you his golden

 dice that he was running a gambling ring out of that space. I don't think he'll be back 

 with the Bluecoats looking for him. I have put an eviction notice on his area, 0266, 

 and I plan on clearing out the place in a few days to rent it to Gonzalez.

I felt bad that we had to throw Gonzalez out to make room for Capezza, so I cut him a deal

 on this space seeing that it's smaller than his old area. Speaking of Capezza, could you 

 ask him to keep the noise down?

Our yearly inspection of your space was last week. 

Our inspector found that he could not get to the second floor 

because the elevator button on the first floor was broken. 

Why didn't you report this problem? Please see me about this matter. 

I don't like it when a piece of equipment on my property is not working. 

We have also been receiving complaints from E. B. Bramrich. He rents the 

office space below your second floor office and he claims to be hearing 

odd noises late at night. Please look into that.

I hold thy work in much regard, and thou knowest it 

was on mine own recommendation that my brotherhood contracted 

thy work. I trust by now thou hast received a small shipment of 

Addonizio Crystal. By the coming weekend, I shalt need ten lenses 

ground from the crystal thou hast received. Each lens must span 

three units in width, with a breadth of exactly two units. 

Grind thou one face concave and one convex. Make haste and then 

bring me thy work for my approval.
