OriginEdit

Felix Bloch served as director of European and Canadian Affairs for the US Department of State when he became entangled in an espionage act. The French DGSE watched Bloch meet with a confirmed Soviet spy in Paris under the guise of two stamp collectors. A small bag was left with “Bart”, contents unknown.

Several weeks later, Bloch’s contact warned him of being sick, and the FBI realized their investigation was monitored. Agents took the direct approach asking to confess. Bloch said nothing unusual happened – he was suspended and later fired from work, while undercovers and the media followed him for months after. Years afterwards, FBI agents discovered one of their own, Robert Hanssen, was the leak.

EffectsEdit

Opening while alone shows regular stamps for different countries. Those that have some intelligence acronym or undercover operations actively investigating a person will glow brightly. Doubles in intensity when within city limits of the same operative. It doesn’t spell out which agency or under whose directive the search is being levied. Just assesses which potential parties are interested in their services.

The collection is also quite unbiased. To keep everyone up to date, an anonymized message (usually letter or email) appears to all involved individuals. Saying something along the lines “target realizes they are being followed”. Both the commanding officer and user get the same treatment without a return address, meaning they alone have to immediately act on the information.
