1. Welcome to the Operation.

This is Operation Under the Ice, an undisclosed multinational government entity established to study and further our understanding of beings beyond our knowledge. You have been recruited to help further the development and maintenance of this Operation, of which has been pushing the boundaries of knowledge and research since 1998 in major parts of Alaska, Russia and Canada. The Operation is centralized in the north, where you are now. The Entities seen under our care are to be safely contained, protected, and researched. Please refer to the guidelines below for further information.

2. Protocols.

Here at Under the Ice, we care about our employees, and thus rules and protocols are put forward for your health and safety. Breaching such protocols will put you under evaluation for all your work performance to be looked over, and if there are no such improvements, further action will be taken. So please abide by the rules, they are here to keep you safe and secure.

SECURITY PROTOCOLS

a. Containment Breach:
i. Containment is priority, keep casualties to a minimum; entities are not expendable and are often one-of-a-kind.
ii. Direct and evacuate any staff to the nearest panic room, they are what make out the foundation.
iii. Detain any defectors.
iV. Escort any injured staff to any available medic.

b. Rescue:

ii. Move as a unit and do not separate until required. Do not let one man move in alone.
iii. Eyes on the entity at all times.
iV. Once entry is made, split off into two groups: One for ensuring the entity remains incapacitated, the other for rescue procedure.
V. Extract the victim and evacuate the cell as quickly as possible.
Vi. Escort the injured to medical or quarantine depending upon the situation.

RESEARCH PROTOCOLS
a. Interaction and Specifics:
i. It is prohibited to have any interaction or contact with an entity if it is outside of entity experimentation, thus, building any relationship is extremely discouraged.
ii. Any experiment conducted in Northern Facility laboratories must be led by a scientist. No other departments have the clearance to conduct these experiments. Any other involvements are prohibited unless proper permissions are accepted by higher ups.
iii. Observation reports must be handed to superior staff, anything that is false or intentionally misleading will put you under scrutinization.

iii. If the entity begins affecting a member of staff through either ability or emotional stimuli, remove them from the observation deck at once.
iV. Misconduct will be penalized.

3. Entities.

Our Entities are labeled by their danger levels. Thus the term Alpha, Beta, and Gamma are created. Gamma are considered the safest and least volatile of the three sectors, they are easier to manage and contain than the other sectors. Beta is much more difficult, though they are not as dangerous. Alpha, however, are the most volatile of the three.
Approaching any of the dangerous entities requires clearance and permission. It is encouraged to approach any observation and experiment alongside another.

Entities are to be housed within specialized enclosures, always with one entrance and one exit where they are to receive basic provisions such as food, water, and a generous amount of living space. Beds and toilets are provided when necessary. Each unit will be outfitted with a state-of-the-art video surveillance system for constant monitoring and scientific observation.
Within particular intervals during the week, the Entity will be subjected to extensive experimentation for research purposes, as well as for further measurement and understanding of the psychophysiology of the Entities housed in this facility.

4. Occupations.

We have different sectors and each have their own assigned roles. As such, we encourage collaborations and teamwork between the sector outside of your own. Each sector handles sides of the Facility, it is discouraged to be involved in others’ work if it is unnecessary or beyond your permission and clearance.
