(Near as we can tell):

  • A runner team caused a magical disaster of some kind on a botched run. It's explosion materialized a cloud of black fog that has turned the area into a mana warp suffused with 'shadow energy'. Some lightning spirits or possibly storm spirits were also seen.
  • After a runner team attempted to infiltrate the building and were all killed, with KE losing a magical mage trying to figure out what was going on, an Ares strike team was sent in. None of them have survived.
  • A runner named Bannon was a member of the team that went in there, but has gone to ground since KE has been beating the streets trying to find the guy for more information. He's a rigger and was likely off-site during the infiltration.
  • The barricaded area has expanded to four city blocks.
  • A powerful free spirit (a 'demon' in common parlance) is using the astral warp to funnel power into himself. Electrical, solar, heat from the environment, even the phantom power in Matrix lines. If not stopped, growth is exponential. It will cover all of Denver in a matter of days. Best foods are electricity and metahuman life energy.
  • Was growing at a rate of 1 meter per day. Growth has accelerated. Being is become more powerful by the day. Action required.
