Special Containment Procedures: Given its remote location, North Carolina State Park Rangers are tasked with carrying out a 75 kilometer exclusion zone around Lake Setagwa. Entry into this exclusion zone is strictly prohibited.

The access shaft located on-site has been sealed with steel-reinforced concrete composite. Locations of interest are monitored remotely via live feeds. Personnel observing these feeds are to report atypical events to the appropriate Containment Director.

Description: Lake Setagwa is a man-made body of water located in Dellington County, North Carolina. It is the former

Schmidt Island is a part of the Severnaya Zemlya group (an archipelago off the coast of Siberia's Taymyr Peninsula). It is the site of a now-uninhabited urban-type settlement (Nyakala), eleven metallic structures of unidentified origin, and an underground complex.

Nyakala is believed to have been a mining settlement operated under the jurisdiction of the Gulag. Although records retrieved from Krasnoyarsk (the administrative center of Krasnoyarsk Krai, which includes the Severnaya Zemlya island group) confirm plans to construct a settlement of this name, no corroborating account of its construction, administration, or prisoner manifest has been found. Nevertheless, evidence on-site suggests it was inhabited as late as 1986.

Eleven identical metallic structures are arranged in a hendecagon 2 kilometers north of Nyakala. Each tower is comprised of a titanium-zinc alloy; they extend (approx) thirty-six meters above the surface and to an unknown depth below. In addition to emitting an average of one to two thousand mSv (millisieverts) of gamma radiation every hour, the towers continuously broadcast a warning klaxon across two separate radio frequencies (640 and 1240 kHz).

An access shaft nearby descends approx. two kilometers beneath the surface, connecting to a large subterranean complex. Although the volume of this complex is unknown, records discovered on-site confirm that it includes tunnels up to several thousand kilometers in length.
