Avariel looked in the Power Station’s office and noticed an open parts cabinet. Examining it further, she saw that the heretofore mislabeled and boxed collection of one-way aether valves and diodes had been organized.
Except for one missing Mendez and Everham 200W Diode (For Portable Applications.)
Under the blotter in the office, she found a note, with five Bear Flag Empire notes (each redemable at the Bank of San Francisco for 1/16 oz of gold.)
20 Oct 18XX
Please forgive the late evening intrusion on your premises, but you were not around, and the need was pressing. You will find five Bear Flag Empire dollars with which should more than cover the replacement of the aether diode I appropriated from your spares.
However my friends are in danger and I needed the diode to make a small adaptation to one of my gadgets
