Great attention to detail. Professional quality writing and presentation within established Pathfinder/D&D 3.x supplements/adventures. Maps. Intelligent, crafty foes who are well prepared to strike at those who would invade their basements.
Reminds me of an encounter I ran in 2ed AD&D that involved a Kobold wearing Dwarven plate mail, drinking potions of great haste, super-heroism and storm giant strength (all looted from a dead adventurer)- it was a nasty shock for the players.
This is more or less ready to run, out of the box, given any familiarity with pathfinder.
The twist is that the drugs will likely be used to frame someone at a later point in time. I was thinking a federal judge, or maybe a senator. Of course, what's left will probably be sold off to help fund Agency 17. After all, that's what corrupt FBI agents have done multiple times. Go to Comment
I was wrapping this up at around 2AM right before bed and I'm sure the Hardings/Harrison slip was a result of that. :D You are correct that it is GURPS that this mission was written for, and since I'll likely have this up as my GM notes during play, the stats are vital to my own use of the submission in-game.

Agency 17 may have pulled some strings to ensure that the Sarin was moved to this specific facility. Rocksprings Texas is a real life location- located in Edwards County, so it's more deserty.
The facility was originally built by the DEA back during the initial creation of the organization. It's loaned to other government agencies, meaning the staff there could easily be DEA, NSA, or DHS, possibly even a mix. Given the scientific experiments on site, the facility might not just be attempting to destroy the Sarin, but research new methods to render it inert or possibly develop a better cure to administer to those affected by it.
The fact that the facility is relatively poorly defended and lacking security features is one of many things that might stick out to my players as being wrong or fishy. This is intended. Go to Comment
