[It happens promptly at midnight, Monday morning. Some computers throughout Repose just kind of... lock up. Rebooting does nothing to solve the problem, and eventually, the computer simply displays a single page.
It seems, dear citizens of Repose, that some of your computers are being held hostage.
Payment is demanded, as is the norm for these sorts of situations, a measly $5000 in order to have your computer (and its contents) restored. Payment is requested through an unfamiliar website, heavily secured and nearly impossible to trace back to its source. The time limit? Friday at midnight.
Attempts to restore the computer through other ways triggers the unpleasant effect of the circuitry simply catching fire.
The screen is worded politely, all pleases and thank yous, and it is signed simply by someone calling himself 'Daddy Dearest'.
Happy Monday, Repose. It's going to be a beautiful week.]
