First thing I thought when I saw the canopy was "AT-6". It gets used way too often as the generic enemy airplane stand-in in TV and movies.

So, it's really a triple-layer disguise. Those who do notice the difference will easily buy the cosplay line without reaching the obvious conclusion that the conveyor comes from a timeline where the US was taken over or joined the Nazis, and so were happily building AT-6s with their insignia.

A new mega-dungeon has suddenly appeared, just in time for your upcoming TFT adventure Into The Labyrinth. (Now that's a marketing stunt! WTG, Phil.)

6.7 million cubic meters is about 150,000 megahexes. I hope you bought extra addon packs. Or if you're more into D&D and OSR, that's around 236,000 10' squares. Those Chinese geologists are going to need a lot of graph paper.

Staff at the U.S. Embassy in Havana are suffering from strange neurological problems with symptoms similar to that of a concussion, only with no physical evidence of trauma. The obvious guess is that this is the result of some secret weapon, maybe using sonic beams or EMPs or something, the Cubans have developed to ... okay, what the purpose of this might be is also mysterious. A lot of theories in this article, but no good answers. Which makes it good gaming material:

The Strange Case of American Diplomats in Cuba

As seen in the quote above, we've already visited that topic a few times in this thread, but that looks like a nice meaty article (which I'll read later).

The article rambles a bit. It does eventually mention that Microwave theory, but points out the controversy over it, then moves on to further speculation.

Yeah... I thought that might be the case, but it's been a while since I've visited this thread and I wasn't sure. Thanks.

UPDATE: And another article about the
Mystery of the Havana Syndrome
