Fine, dry, clear skies
On the road, California

Potential big trouble. This morning, I think I saw Parsifal. I know he's supposed to be dead, but I saw him. I couldn't forget that face. He didn't see me so he doesn't know I'm on to him. Couldn't risk a confrontation when the kids were with me, not when I don't know what he's doing. Need to gather more data, plan an attack.

Here's the full story.

There's this charity group, the Temple of Unity, set up in Golden Gate park. Frank figures that they're a front for some cult; he got involved when they kidnapped one of his students, Alex Moon. We went in to investigate the prayer meeting last night. Seems harmless on the surface, but they have some very thuggish bruisers around. Some guy called Brother Thomas preaching to a crowd of punks and dropouts, and a choir handing out tickets to a special meeting later that night.

Sara, Harry and James went back for the special meeting. The cult drugs and hypnotises their victims. They got Sara that way. I tracked them to a ranch outside town. Tried a one man rescue because I didn't trust the kids to do it right. I needn't have worried. They showed initiative and teamwork, rescued Sara without my help. We also got out with Alex Moon. They've got a substantial stash of narcotics at the ranch, so I put a call in to the cops to bust them. Should slow them down if nothing else.

Back in town, we headed for "Brother Thomas". He's staying at the Haley Hotel. That's where I saw Parsifal. I got a good look at his face from 100 yards, I swear it was really him, looking like he hasn't aged in the last 20 years.

So I let them go. Thomas too. Parsifal doesn't act without a solid plan, so I can't tackle him without one. He's rebuilding Black Zero. I know he is. If he does, he becomes our number one enemy. The Krai are chicken feed in comparison. We went through hell to bust BZ last time. This time I'm going to bust them before they get a foothold. I swear.
