PROCESSES AND BEST PRACTICES
For some time now there has been a steady increase in the annual number of AWEs that the Bureau responds to. Between 2010 and 2015 we responded to twenty? AWEs. For comparison, note that we only responded to eight? between 1995 and 2005.
Is this rise a result of black market-produced AIs, improvement in our detection procedures, or perhaps simply coincidence? We cannot say for sure, which is why this proposal for an AWE Task Force to be created within the hierarchy of the Investigations Sector has been compiled. We need to spend more time examining what causes AWEs rather than just containing them.

Wolff Globe (AI72-PE)
No unique procedures required. However, contact should be limited, as some report feeling disoriented after touching it.
Item is handmade, set in dark wood. The item itself is lacquered, hand-painted, spins freely on all axes. While the continents and oceans are recognizably those of Earth, careful examination has revealed numerous features in incorrect locations? and other geographic additions that do not exist on our planet. One of these islands has a city marked on it, named "Tan Relio". There are no signatures left by its maker.
Physical contact renders subjects dizzy and disoriented, with some reporting a feeling of unfamiliarity with their surroundings. This effect seems to grow worse with prolonged contact, culminating in a sense of listlessness and depression. Suicide has been observed in older? maybe just a number handlers.

BY ORDER OF
Dr. Raya Underhill, Contract Threshold Specialist
SUBJECT: Subject Name Here
The deceased was a twenty?-year-old probably demographic information I can't speculate on with no significant past medical history. The subject was brought in after being discovered in the Active Threshold, in an early state of decay that is characteristically fungal-based in its appearance.
During autopsy, the cadaver's pleural cavities were revealed to be entirely filled by the fungus known as the Mold, to an extent that medical staff were forced to put on decontamination suits. The procedure was also hindered by anomalies such as the deceased's high body temperature and undulating torso muscles presumably, but not provably, caused by trapped gases. Routine samples, as well as tissue samples requested by Dr. Underhill, were successfully extracted, however their rapid retrogression outside of the host body needs to be noted.
Cause of death: Mold ingestion.

Oh Deer Diner Coffee Thermos
No unique procedures required. Altered status is suspected, but unverified.
A blue coffee thermos with a white plastic cap and a logo of the "Oh Deer Diner" located in Bright Falls, Washington. The cap doubles as a mug.
The item responds to Formula I.16, yet no discernable altered effect has been discovered, other than keeping liquids warm for surprisingly long periods of time. It's also worth noting that the coffee from the thermos is always refreshing and strong, no matter its quality before being poured into the item.
The thermos was discovered on the shore of Cauldron Lake, outside the town of Bright Falls. Both are known sites of a recurring AWE (see Bright Falls AWE case file for further information). According to witness statements, Alan Wake (see Prime Candidate Program entry for further information), who went missing shortly before the discovery of the thermos, had been seen obsessively? collecting similar thermoses for an unknown purpose.
