Painful Truth: Excerpts from Plan Number Six

Memo to the Legions of Evil, April 19.

Well, we all got back to the safehouse, and that’s something. Obviously, there were some flaws with Plan Five. Mistakes were made. That said, how could anyone have anticipated that the cutting torches would set off the smoke alarms in the buildings next door to the bank? Or that the sewage maintenance crew would choose that exact time to check on the tunnel?

Obviously, we should have anticipated the rapid police response. Lesson learned.

So, tunnelling into the vault is out. For the next plan, we’ll move to aerial extraction. Those diamonds will be ours!

Memo to the Legions of Evil, April 30.

Planning work by Dr. D’Eth on the quad-rotored heavy lifter is proceeding well. The engines should be powerful enough to lift the entire vault clear of the bank. The main problem will be fabrication – can we build the engines quickly enough to have the device ready before the bank upgrades security in June? I am consulting with factories in China.

Meanwhile, Black Kat’s work on subverting the electronic security is on schedule. Her software should enable us to take control of every streetlight in the city – ensuring out escape will be smooth next time!

Crimson Terror is recruiting some muscle. We obviously need more pathetic lackeys. (See Appendix 1: Legal fees for captured lackeys.)

Personally, I’m cultivating contacts in the city and the banking industry. To this end, I have assumed a persona as a real estate developer. I have meetings set up with several bankers. The fools won’t expect us this time!

Memo to the Legions of Evil, June 2.

Obviously, we’ve missed out on the deadline to proceed with the aerial extraction, at least without some major modifications to the plan. The bank has finished replacing its skylight.

Fortunately, our Chinese production partners are interested in licensing Dr. D’Eth’s designs for the quad-rotor engines. I’ve created a limited partnership and we’re selling some to the mining industry – there may be applications in fighting forest fires, as well. This should give us some working capital for Plan Six-B.

Crimson Terror has found a lot of muscle. More than we needed, possibly. He’s coming up with a plan to keep them busy and physically fit until we’re ready to begin the operation.

As far as Kat’s project goes, we’ll have to meet on this, next Thursday. The software design seems to have gone off the rails. We can use the conference room in the offices I’ve acquired for my cover.

Memo to the Legions of Evil, August 19.

We cannot become discouraged, as Plan Six-C is looking like our best bet to get into the vault. The quad-rotor engine has been re-purposed to power our underground drilling machines. (Yes, we’re going in underground again. No, this will not be a repeat of Plan Four. Or Five.) The solid tungsten drill bits will be expensive, but the IPO on Kat’s dating app should (just) cover that cost.

Klaus is talking about creating a full research and development arm. We can hire some of the goons from Crimson’s gym to work in the warehouses, so that’s a win-win.

Memo to LEv. Corp. directors, Nov. 19.

Crimson’s gym chain/juice bar has opened its third location this week, so congratulations are due to our VP of Operations.

Kat will be moving over from Information Systems to Finance now that the dating app has been acquired by Facebook. Sadly, Dr. D’Eth will be leaving us to head up his new venture. Finance is finishing up details of the spinoff. The new office building downtown will break ground on Thursday.

By the new schedule, Plan Six-F should launch early in the third quarter next year. Those diamonds will be ours!
