The Madness Dossier: WORMWOOD
One of dozens of SANDMAN safe houses scattered across the world, Site POLYBIUS (aka 'The Ranch') is one of the few installations intended to serve as a regional headquarters for the Project. Located near the Texas/Oklahoma border in the United States, POLYBIUS serves as an emergency fallback facility for the Project. As a regional headquarters, the site maintains comfortable living conditions above and below ground, complete communication and intelligence facilities, a secure vault and armory, and an airstrip with a SANDMAN-modified Cessna CJ4 on standby.
The subsurface facilities house the SANDMAN archives, a beyond-the-art Beowulf cluster neural network system, and direct access to the United States' Internet backbone servers. At need, POLYBIUS systems can interface with NASA and NRO ground systems to retask satellite surveillance. Currently, POLYBIUS hosts the Project strike team and a small surface staff. Subsurface facilities are maintained by Project Sensionauts
