“He’s growing desperate and has decided to ask for help internally. He has a plan to escape and needs your help. It’s not going to be easy, and he’s going to need all-hands-on-deck to help him acquire all of the items necessary for his escape. He’s been working on gathering resources and assistance throughout his months imprisoned, and he’s ready to cash in on some favours.
Throughout the prison, his contacts have been acquiring and hiding items to aid in his escape, and he needs your help to procure these items, create a distraction, and help him escape so that he can get back home to prove his innocence. On his computer are hidden files with all the evidence needed to clear his name.
