  1. 6:27 PM <UltimixRed> <Will the students listed please report to the train station. Nora Haltz, Conrad Ory, Gungnir, and Sandra Brown. Be sure to bring all your gear for the mission. Have a pleasant day.>
  2. 6:27 PM <SpookyBee> Nora's quick to arrive, in her flashy red Focus! Vroom vroom.
  3. 6:27 PM <Kadmus> Conn straps on his gear - a first aid kit and his watch - tucks a snack bar into his pocket, and lumbers over to the train station. How exciting! He hasn't been on the school train before.
  4. 6:28 PM <SpookyBee> Nora hops out'a her car, dressed in some jeans and a tanktop, with aviators on her face!
  5. 6:29 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix arrives fairly quickly, her feet wrapped tightly with dark cloth strips, aracnoweave combat vest, black tank top and black cargo pants.
  6. 6:31 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix looked around and spotting Conn and Nora she smiled, good two students she trusted.
  7. 6:31 PM <Kadmus> Conn waves to the two girls! Wow, everyone's much taller than him this time around.
  8. 6:32 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir grabs his mission gear and straps on his armor. He looks full on viking warrior. A half helm, breastplate, greaves, and bracers, all inscribed with various protective runes. He also has a quiver with a couple harpoons, both attached to the quiver with long coils of rope. He shows up to the train platform and nods to those there. Conn is afforded a brief smile, even.
  9. 6:32 PM <UltimixRed> Waiting at the train station is an Indian man in a labcoat with several clipboards. Conrad and Gungnir would recognize him as Dr. Maheswaran, who looks pretty worried. Besides him is a table with assorted gear. 2 Runic Shield Bracelets, 2 Kinetic Barriers, and what looks to be some sort of remote and 2 explosive charges. "Thank you for getting here so
  10. 6:32 PM <UltimixRed> quickly, the Eye of Infinity, a terrorist cell  had a base in Arizona. We're pretty sure they have misjudged terribly. Your job is to go in, and make sure the problem does not spread to the surrounding areas."
  11. 6:32 PM ⇐ Antichthon quit (Antichthon@79-6-965-554-tlzksgf.midco.net) Read error: Operation timed out
  12. 6:33 PM <Kadmus> "Is this about the sandwiches again?" Conn asks.
  13. 6:33 PM → Anti|Gone joined (Antichthon@79-6-965-554-tlzksgf.midco.net)
  14. 6:34 PM <SpookyBee> Nora blinks, raising a brow at the high gear loadout. ~... Sandwiches?~
  15. 6:34 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix looks at the charges after giving Gun a respetful nod, she really felt much better now. "What you mean they misjudged?"
  16. 6:34 PM ⇐ Mjeowlnir quit (dicebot@79-6-965-554-tlzksgf.midco.net) Ping timeout: 276 seconds
  17. 6:34 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun raises an eyebrow at the charges. "Are we to destroy the facility?"
  18. 6:35 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix looked to Conn and put her claw in front of her mouth breathing...she knew she should have brushed after those egg salad sandwiches.
  19. 6:35 PM <SpookyBee> "They could'a just sent me in for a demo job... Seems like a li'l more."
  20. 6:35 PM → Mjeowlnir joined (dicebot@79-6-965-554-tlzksgf.midco.net)
  21. 6:36 PM <UltimixRed> Dr.Maheswaran shrugs at Conn's suggestion. "We still have no idea if that plot was even relevant in the grand scheme of things. By misjudged I mean they probably messed with an anomaly they should not have, and paid the price. As for the facility, recover as much as you can. Otherwise destroy it. We cannot be sure what it is in there, so be prudent. Here are
  22. 6:36 PM <UltimixRed> two explosive charges, they'll be needed for whatever needs destroying. "
  23. 6:36 PM Anti|Gone → Antichthon
  24. 6:37 PM <Kadmus> "Does anyone know how to use those?" Conn asks, looking concerned. "Beacase me? I do not."
  25. 6:37 PM <SpookyBee> "I don't need no bombs- I got these guns~" Nora grins, and flexes jokingly!
  26. 6:37 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix looks to the others. "I can rig those...probally."
  27. 6:38 PM <UltimixRed> "Take them anyway, you attach them, put in the detonation code, 001, and press the big red button. Very simple really. Now are there any more questions, since it is a remote area, sending you in by train is the way to go. Though stay away from the locals if possible."
  28. 6:39 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix looked to herself and the others. "Yeah...uh...we do kinda stand out this time."
  29. 6:39 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir nods at Skix. "Good." He says shortly, he seems all business. He then turns to the good doctor. "Any information as to what the facility was specializing in?"
  30. 6:40 PM <UltimixRed> "Purification of souls and bodies. We suspect that is why they worked on sandwiches first."
  31. 6:40 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix takes the detonators and attaches her school issued equipment. She looks to be carrying some basic gear as well strapped to the verious pockets and webbings of her jacket.
  32. 6:41 PM <PuddleJumper> "You mean....like sandwich sandwiches?
  33. 6:41 PM <Kadmus> "Ah. Everyone please get the 'I have a bad feeling about this' and 'It's quiet, too quiet' out of your systems now, please," Conn says, looking worried. "We do not wish to tempt fate once inside. I 'ave fought enough hockey-masked serial killers for one life time, thank you."
  34. 6:41 PM <SpookyBee> "... Speak fe'r yourself, I can be normal if I wann'a." Which was true. Nora found her shape-changing skills were pretty smooth these days.
  35. 6:42 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir frowns, this sounded much more dangeroous than a sandwich. "Well. We should go then. Thank you Doctor." He says, going to board the train.
  36. 6:42 PM <PuddleJumper> "Ive got a bad feeling about this, is it supposed to make that sound, That was supposed to happen right, Your arm was like that when we started yeah?" Skix paused..."Im sure i could think of some more."
  37. 6:42 PM <UltimixRed> The doctor nods at Gungnir "Good luck children, you have communicators. Call us if you need to get out of there." He also hands out 4 USBs for data collection
  38. 6:43 PM <Kadmus> "Please do not say them once we get there," Conn says, smiling. He takes a runic shield bracelet and a USB stick, and head to the train.
  39. 6:44 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix looked to Nora...she didnt wanna say to much about how she thought she looked...she had mission stuff to concentrate on...she then dropped her usb while staring at Nora. "Whoopsy daisey." she scrabbled for the usb then followed Gun.
  40. 6:44 PM <SpookyBee> Nora nods- before hopping on the train! Does said train have a bathroom?
  41. 6:45 PM <UltimixRed> The train starts heading down to Arizona...feel free to use this time to fill your teammates on any details you may feel are relevant, powers, previous experience, how lettuce tastes. Once you are done, press > Continue.
  42. 6:45 PM <UltimixRed> The train does. neat.
  43. 6:46 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix looks to the others. "You two did something with this group before...what did he mean sandwiches?"
  44. 6:46 PM <SpookyBee> Nora uses said train to take a body-swap, exiting as a 5'4" scrawny, kind of nerdy-looking girl with blonde hair that goes past her ears. But she's got the same clothes on, at least... Though they're a bit baggy. Her hair has a little pink in it, still, as well.
  45. 6:48 PM <Kadmus> Conn nods to Skix and Gun. "You two know what I can do, weh?" He says. "I 'ave picked up a new trick, but it does not change my role. If you are injured, call out and I will assist. Do not worry if I get hurt," he directs this to Nora. "I am tres hard to kill." He shrugs at the sandwich mention. "This group
  46. 6:48 PM <Kadmus> was working on the perfect sandwich at a different location. It was tres peculiar. Good lettuce, though, tu sais?"
  47. 6:48 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir looks to the rest of the team. "The same group had a different base where they were attempting to create the perfect sandwich with magic. Now they are trying to use the same concept to create the perfect anomaly. I have runes that will allow us to communicate telepathically. They should be useful." He pulls out 5 pieces of paper. "Apply these to your skin when we arrive,
  48. 6:48 PM <BobaFettuccine> they should last for two hours."
  49. 6:49 PM <SpookyBee> "... Perfect sammich, huh? That sounds kind'a... Out there." Nora climbs up onto a chair next to Skix, smiling at the lizard girl!
  50. 6:51 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun looks to Nora, face impassive. "It does, though the magic they were using to do so was extremely advanced."
  51. 6:51 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix nodded. Looking a bit surprised by Nora's look, but gave a big smile...she was cute! She took the rune. "I could get behind the perfect sandwich thing...but i mean its like that icrus thing...you cant fly to high...i mean the perfect sandwich thing alone is kinda pushing it." She looked at the rune. "I got some of the ones you gave me before...uh...it looks nice."
  52. 6:51 PM <BobaFettuccine> He then hands out one rune to everyone.
  53. 6:52 PM <BobaFettuccine> "You purchased strength and mental enhancing runes, this one is a separate rune." He says to Skix.
  54. 6:52 PM <SpookyBee> ""... What could go wrong with a good sandwich, though? Sounded innocent 'nough ta me, really." She puts her feet up on the seat opposite her, getting comfy.
  55. 6:53 PM <Kadmus> Conn applies the rune. Clumsily, of course. "What can you do, Nora?" He asks. "I 'ave worked with the others before, but not you."
  56. 6:55 PM <PuddleJumper> "Me and Nora have sparred before, but i can also sneak and break into places pretty good. I'm good at tracking. Not so good at fighting magic or incorpreal stuff."
  57. 6:55 PM <SpookyBee> "... I, uh... We'll figure that out when we get to it, eh?" Nora blinks, smiling a bit but feeling anxious about that truth.
  58. 6:55 PM <Kadmus> "Oh dear," murmurs Conn. "Well, trial by fire it is, I suppose."
  59. 6:56 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun watches silently and waits for the train to arrive at the mission site > continue
  60. 6:56 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix pats the girl. "I'll do my best to look out for ya."
  61. 6:56 PM <Kadmus> >Continue
  62. 6:56 PM <PuddleJumper> > continue
  63. 6:56 PM <SpookyBee> ~... Trial by fire. This'll be fun.~
  64. 6:58 PM <UltimixRed> The train pulls into a desert, it's early morning but the sun is hot and beats down on everyone. In front of the train station is a large sandstone formation, and a pure white spec. Most likely a door. the wind is blowing and...is that a tumbleweed. No other signs of life are to be found, even plants or small animals.
  65. 7:00 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun gets off of the train and waits for the others to unload with him, he studies the sandstone formation and the door as he does, changing into his metal form.
  66. 7:00 PM <Kadmus> Conn looks a little sad at the desert. Bad memories. He steps off the train and rolls his shoulders, joining Gun in the examination of the distant formation.
  67. 7:01 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix finishes off her sprite and the her 5th pack of those little travle nut bags putting the wrappers into the back of the seat coushin...someone would get those later. "Yeesh, hope everyone brought water...sept for you Gun."
  68. 7:02 PM <UltimixRed> The formation is tough sandstone, and the door is a metallic white with what do you know, an access panel requiring a security card and or pressing the intercom button to call someone to open it. The door is about 5 meters tall, and 2 meters wide.
  69. 7:02 PM <SpookyBee> Nora hops off, following Skix closely! The heat doesn't bother her for /reasons/. "... Nice place fe'r a vakay."
  70. 7:03 PM <Kadmus> ~...We did not retrieve any key cards, did we, mon ami?~ Conn thinks, looking to Gun, and looking slightly exasperated. ~Try to talk our way in?~
  71. 7:03 PM <Kadmus> ~Or we could kick it down again.~
  72. 7:03 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix looks over the others. "I got a leatherman...i could try to short it out."
  73. 7:03 PM <PuddleJumper> "Or hotwire it..."
  74. 7:04 PM <Kadmus> ~Or that! That sounds like a bien plan, mon amie.~
  75. 7:04 PM <BobaFettuccine> ~It seems that's the only way in.~ Gun thinks back. ~I believe that talking would not work with our current setup. Think to us Skix, that is what the telepathic link is for. IF you are unable to get us in that way, Conn and I will break through.~
  76. 7:04 PM <UltimixRed> Skix...please roll me electronics!
  77. 7:04 PM <BobaFettuccine> He then starts walking towards the door.
  78. 7:05 PM <Kadmus> Conn moves into position so that when Skix opens the door, he and Gun are between her and whatever's inside. No point someone squishy getting shot up, after all!
  79. 7:05 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix plasters the rune on her side below her shirt where it wont show...she then takes out her tools from a cargo pants pocket and starts fiddeling with it.
  80. 7:05 PM <PuddleJumper> r 10
  81. 7:05 PM <Mjeowlnir> Rolling 10 D6 against 5 for PuddleJumper: [ 5 5 5 4 4 3 2 1 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 3 ]
  82. 7:06 PM <UltimixRed> It only takes a couple moments of Skix working to realize quite readily that...no power is actually connected to the door right now. Fiddling with the door will get them exactly nowhere. A good chance the entire place is down in the electricity department.
  83. 7:07 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix removes the pannel and once she notes no led's are on she actually tries the door...feeling a tad silly...but not for long. "Powers out."
  84. 7:07 PM <SpookyBee> "... Lemme try somethin'." Nora steps up, nudging Skix aside!
  85. 7:08 PM <UltimixRed> The door doesn't have anything resembling a handle, just a giant white circle separated by a line
  86. 7:08 PM <BobaFettuccine> ~Think it, Skix, not out loud.~ He then glances at Nora, ~You too.~
  87. 7:08 PM <PuddleJumper> ohhh
  88. 7:08 PM <SpookyBee> "Actually, fe'r the sake of not hurtin' anyone, you guys should step back."
  89. 7:08 PM <UltimixRed> Nora, Roll me Ragnorak!
  90. 7:09 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix backs off giving her room.
  91. 7:09 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun takes a few steps back, but is ready to move through the door as soon as it's gone.
  92. 7:09 PM <SpookyBee> Nora takes a little time to focus, before outstretching a palm!
  93. 7:09 PM <SpookyBee> r 12
  94. 7:09 PM <Mjeowlnir> Rolling 12 D6 against 5 for SpookyBee: [ 6 5 4 4 3 3 3 2 2 2 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 2 ]
  95. 7:10 PM <SpookyBee> Oof...
  96. 7:10 PM <UltimixRed> Nora's fire starts melting through the door but...there seems to be several layers and what is a blast door. They make it a couple inches through. Serious protection here.
  97. 7:11 PM <UltimixRed> what looks to be a blast door*
  98. 7:11 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun looks at Conn. ~Our turn then?~
  99. 7:11 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix nods "Try again, once you get in we can try and wrench it open."
  100. 7:11 PM <Kadmus> Conn steps forwards and nods to Gun. He tries to wedge his fingers into the gap Nora's made, aiming to pull the door open to the side with Gun's help.
  101. 7:11 PM <UltimixRed> Roll me Vitality/Toughness, Gun can assist
  102. 7:12 PM <Kadmus> r 14
  103. 7:12 PM <Mjeowlnir> Rolling 14 D6 against 5 for Kadmus: [ 6 6 5 5 4 4 4 3 3 3 2 2 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 4 ]
  104. 7:13 PM <SpookyBee> "... Huh..." Nora looks at her hand- "... I'll figure it out."
  105. 7:13 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix puts her strength to it as well
  106. 7:13 PM <PuddleJumper> R 11
  107. 7:13 PM <PuddleJumper> r 11
  108. 7:13 PM <Mjeowlnir> Rolling 11 D6 against 5 for PuddleJumper: [ 6 5 5 4 4 3 3 2 2 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 3 ]
  109. 7:13 PM <BobaFettuccine> r 21
  110. 7:13 PM <Mjeowlnir> Rolling 21 D6 against 5 for BobaFettuccine: [ 6 6 6 6 5 5 5 5 5 4 4 4 3 3 3 3 2 2 2 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 9 ]
  111. 7:17 PM <UltimixRed> Gungnir, with the help of Conn and Skix finally manage to shove the door apart, and with the sound of creaking metal, open it to the other side. Inside is a long hallway, which is only lit by the natural sunlight now streaming in, and flickering fluorescent light. on the right side of the hallway is what looks to be a security panel, and a slumped body in
  112. 7:17 PM <UltimixRed> full combat gear holding an auto shotgun. Blood is streaked onto the wall behind him, and a little bit on the panel
  113. 7:18 PM <Kadmus> ~If he gets up and demands brains, I will be displeased,~ Thinks Conn, keeping an eye on the hallway.
  114. 7:18 PM <UltimixRed> You can Roll Medicine, or Investigation at -2 if you want to check over the body!
  115. 7:18 PM <Kadmus> r 9
  116. 7:18 PM <Mjeowlnir> Rolling 9 D6 against 5 for Kadmus: [ 6 5 5 4 4 3 2 2 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 3 ]
  117. 7:19 PM <SpookyBee> Nora steps on in, letting a little sigh out. "... This's gross..."
  118. 7:19 PM <Kadmus> Conn medicines at the body.
  119. 7:19 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun just frowns and walks in, looking for any doors, or anything of interest other than the body. Wary for any danger.
  120. 7:19 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix steps forward sniffing and looking into the darkness, scanning for any sights or smells that ment danger...not excluding the body.
  121. 7:21 PM <PuddleJumper> (roll perception?)
  122. 7:21 PM <UltimixRed> Conrad, you are pretty familiar with the human body. For one thing, besides a minor puncture wound, they don't seem to be injured in any other way. Their pale skin shows that they died a good while ago...but the blood behind them on the wall is still a bit wet. Dried so it has been a while, but there certainly seems to be a couple discrepancies in the whole
  123. 7:21 PM <UltimixRed> dead thing
  124. 7:21 PM <UltimixRed> Roll Perception skix!
  125. 7:21 PM <PuddleJumper> r 12
  126. 7:21 PM <Mjeowlnir> Rolling 12 D6 against 5 for PuddleJumper: [ 6 6 5 5 5 5 5 4 3 3 2 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 7 ]
  127. 7:23 PM <UltimixRed> Now, Skix smells a good amount of blood. Lots of it, but nothing that's really /rotten/. As for heat signatures, they don't seem to find anything, except for what looks to be a quick blip on your metaphorical radar in front of you. Probably nothing. Wait...was that a flash of green? it returns to the darkness as quickly as it came.
  128. 7:23 PM <Kadmus> ~This does not seem right.~ Conn says, tilting the man's head so he can examine the puncture. ~He has bled too much, and it is too wet for how recently he died. Something is wrong, mes amis.~
  129. 7:24 PM <Kadmus> *moving the man, not tilting his head
  130. 7:24 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix sniffs and whispers. "Lots of blood further in...i dont see any...wait...there might be something, directly ahead...cant be sure but if its there its quick."
  131. 7:25 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir frowns, are there any other doors? Where does the hall lead?
  132. 7:27 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix steps ahead of the others looking for the layout and trying to track the thing she saw briefly
  133. 7:28 PM <SpookyBee> "I should buy a gun for shit like this..." Nora frowns, not enjoying the unpredictability of her new powers.
  134. 7:28 PM <UltimixRed> Nora, you are in luck. There is a loaded auto shotgun right there!
  135. 7:28 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun points to the shotgun in the security guard's dead hands after Nora says that.
  136. 7:28 PM <Kadmus> Conn hands it up to her.
  137. 7:29 PM <UltimixRed> as for Conrad, the puncture wound looks like something caused by perhaps something high velocity, it's a messy piercing, definitely not a bullet. and it doesn't go all the way through  
  138. 7:29 PM <UltimixRed> Roll to try tracking Skix!
  139. 7:29 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix ignores the gun, she had never fired one in her entire life, she doubted she could pull the trigger with her massive clawed fingers anyway...she stepped off snifffing toward where she thought she saw the heat."
  140. 7:29 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir is still trying to look for doors or where the hallway leads.
  141. 7:30 PM <PuddleJumper> t 12
  142. 7:30 PM <PuddleJumper> r 12
  143. 7:30 PM <Mjeowlnir> Rolling 12 D6 against 5 for PuddleJumper: [ 6 6 6 5 4 3 3 1 1 1 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 4 ]
  144. 7:30 PM <Kadmus> ~If someone else uses throwing darts, I think we are in trouble.~ Conn thinks, looking meaningfully at Gun. ~We did not do so well last time. This injury is from a fast-moving projectile, but not a bullet.~
  145. 7:30 PM <SpookyBee> Nora blinks, and takes said gun! "... On second shot, I've never shot one'a these thin's..."
  146. 7:30 PM <UltimixRed> Nora, roll me willpower, you are looting a dead guy after all
  147. 7:31 PM <SpookyBee> r 3
  148. 7:31 PM <Mjeowlnir> Rolling 3 D6 against 5 for SpookyBee: [ 5 3 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 1 ]
  149. 7:31 PM <UltimixRed> Conn, you do not in fact find a projectile lodged in there..
  150. 7:31 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir shrugs. ~Not everyone is as skilled as Kindle.~ Out loud. "Nora. Skix. Please refrain from speaking aloud. The runes give us a telepathic link for a reason. Please use it."
  151. 7:31 PM ⇐ Cezar quit (uid146914@lrwppksrih.irccloud.com) Quit: Connection closed for inactivity
  152. 7:31 PM <Kadmus> ~Or per'aps something with a knife. That would work too.~
  153. 7:32 PM <UltimixRed> as for Skix's tracking attempt, you can hear the pitter patter of bare feet on metal for a couple seconds but that vanishes. The strange thing is that the source of the noise was not also a source of heat, Skix could tell that much for sure
  154. 7:32 PM <SpookyBee> ~... Right.~ Nora doesn't get magic.
  155. 7:32 PM <Kadmus> ~Or something exotic and 'orrible. I will not rule it out.~
  156. 7:32 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun nods, ~However he died, we will gather no more information here. We should go deeper in.~ He then follows Skix down the hallway.
  157. 7:33 PM <UltimixRed> Nora does in fact steal from a recently dead person, but they have a mission to do. Success.
  158. 7:33 PM <Kadmus> Conn follows the others. ~Try not to shoot us. Or yourself, mon amie.~ He thinks to Nora.
  159. 7:34 PM <UltimixRed> roll me investigation everyone.
  160. 7:34 PM <PuddleJumper> ~I hear bare feet running...not from where i saw heat...i think we should go for the heat...there might be a survivor to ask or that needs our help.~ She starts slowly walking toward the heat source
  161. 7:34 PM <SpookyBee> Nora keeps going, looking the gun over! ~... Eh... I'm thinkin' not...~ She puts it back down as she goes!

  172. 7:38 PM <UltimixRed> The hallway down quickly turns into a winding maze of halls and deadends, whoever designed this base must absolutely hate knowing where you are going. There USED to be kiosks which presumably contained maps, but they're either destroyed or out of power
  173. 7:39 PM <UltimixRed> In a couple of deadends, Gungnir accidentally stumbles upon a part of the wall that is revealed into small cubby holes filled with guns, (Pistols, Lt. Carbines) ammo, and several supplies such as granola bars, water bottles, and chocolate bars.
  174. 7:39 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix tried to lead them where she thought the thing ran. ~not sure what it is but i think it went this way.~ When she tried to use the telepathy the others got some background noise from skix, aparently the inside of her head was a noisey place/
  175. 7:43 PM <SpookyBee> Nora follows along, taking a second or two to revert to her mutated form- Camouflage isn't much of a problem when people aren't a factor.
  176. 7:43 PM <UltimixRed> The place was really dark except for the flickering lights overhead, making navigation hard. though The group is able to locate a couple rooms that aren't bunks (pointless!) shower rooms, and decontamination chambers. For one, dead women and men in labcoats litter the place, some are bleeding and some aren't but all are dead. Many armed soldiers are also
  177. 7:43 PM <UltimixRed> dead, with similar wounds.
  178. 7:44 PM <Kadmus> ~I would not advise eating or drinking anything from here, mes amis.~ Conn thinks. ~This place is a maze, weh. And full of dead people. Pas bien.~

  182. 7:46 PM <UltimixRed> There are two rooms of actual interest to the group, one room labeled experiment room, and the computer room. The experiment room seems to actually have a working security panel, while the computer room does not. Both are on the far side.
  183. 7:46 PM <UltimixRed> far side of the bases.
  184. 7:46 PM <UltimixRed> Base (fuck my typing fingers)
  185. 7:46 PM <SpookyBee> ~Maybe someone's hidin' in that experimental room.~
  186. 7:47 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir nods, ~Experiment room first.~ He says to the party, heading towards the room.
  187. 7:47 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix gagged seeing all the dead people...for once her appitite was gone. ~Blah...no thanks...i dont think anyone here made it...Lets keep looking and see if anyone made it. Wanna risk using the working pannel?~

  196. 7:50 PM <Kadmus> Conn nods to Skix. ~Want to try again?~ He asks, moving to stand in front of the door so any gunmen inside will have to shoot through him to get to Skix if she succeeds.
  197. 7:50 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir looks at Skix. ~Your talents should be useful here.~ He too stands in front of the door.

  273. 8:05 PM <UltimixRed> The experiment room is separated in two sections by a heavy door...or it was. There was the section you guys entered, which seems to be a large panel of switches, buttons, gauges, all the science stuff. Also like science stuff are several researchers slumped over...one of them seems to have been torn in half. The glass which blocked the control area to a
  274. 8:05 PM <UltimixRed> pure white room is currently cracked. on the other side of the glass you hear a light crunching noise. Proceed with Caution? or guns blazing.

  285. 8:11 PM <UltimixRed> source of the munching noise. Two things that look to be children, no older than 7 or 8 with pale skin and sickly green hair are currently crunching the bones of a dead soldier.

  296. 8:15 PM <UltimixRed> "Hey...Bethany. Is...big...sis...lying?" One of the children says, they have shorter hair and not the best table manners.
  297. 8:16 PM <UltimixRed> The other one turns to look at their...sibling? and just shakes their head "No...she...wouldn't." she has a bit longer hair, but if you're trying to tell the difference between the two, it'd require a close inspection
  298. 8:16 PM <Kadmus> Conn looks panicked and staggers after Gun, trying to stop him. Unsuccessfully, because Gun is a nearly seven-foot tall athlete and Conn is a stumpy-legged, uncoordinated staggerer.

  550. 9:38 PM <UltimixRed> Conrad is able to calm themselves. Gungnir is able to self rationalize the need. but both Nora and Skix take 2 Psyche damage, the smell of burning flesh sears itself into their mind. The chant that Bethany pleads to herself as their brother is bereft of life.
  551. 9:40 PM → BobaFettuccine joined (BobaFettuc@k-71-103-79-573.hsd7.wa.comcast.net)
  552. 9:40 PM <Kadmus> Conn stands slowly, smouldering corpse dripping off his form. He looks distinctly unamused. ~I will be reporting this to the school, Nora.~ He thinks, and there's a furious edge to it none of you have ever heard before. He moves to try and help Bethany, then looks at himself and frowns. Not going to be helpful,
  553. 9:40 PM <Kadmus> covered in her little brother.
  554. 9:40 PM ⇐ BobaMobile quit (BobaMobile@2600:100f:b010:plrr:pvkv:pymh:zjkv:yglp) Quit: Bye
  555. 9:41 PM <SpookyBee> Nora's thoughts are quiet- Or, perhaps, too loud to decipher or really hear anything of use or matter in.
  556. 9:41 PM <UltimixRed> Bethany simply stares at Conn, who feels a bit of his life slip from him ever so slightly, almost like Bethany is stealing it. She seems more catatonic at the moment.
  557. 9:41 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix glares at Gun and Nora, backing up and protecting the kid..."Now we are screwed..." she looks to Conn and backs up to the kid."Look...im sorry, you gotta come with us...ok..."
  558. 9:43 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir merely waits. He was not going to be doing anything unless they are attacked. "How are we screwed?" He asks, "I defended the team when we were attacked. Nora was nearly killed."
  559. 9:43 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix holds up her com. "Im calling out...portaling to the school with this kid...they could have contained them both...now...this is so fucked up...im ready to abort...im not going to finish a mission when you cant control yourselves and kill a kid."
  560. 9:44 PM <BobaFettuccine> "I was in perfect control. When lethal force is applied, lethal force is called for. What would you have done if that 'kid' had killed Nora?"
  561. 9:44 PM <Kadmus> Conn lets the girl take as much of his life as she needs. It's not like he can run out particularly quickly.
  562. 9:45 PM <UltimixRed> The voice of Dr.Maheswaran comes online to the communicator "Why do you need the portals? Entering in coordinates. Did something happen?" a green portal appears in front of the group. "Did you finish?
  563. 9:45 PM <PuddleJumper> "I am not going to argue this. I came here to help people not kill them. Break into the facility and deal with the rest without me."
  564. 9:45 PM <SpookyBee> Nora's fire dies back down to a little flicker, but her body remains bulky and rock-like, sounding like stone grinding on stone when she moves.
  565. 9:46 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir shrugs. "Do as you will."
  566. 9:46 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix eyes Conn. "We got a kid here....unstable, dont know what they did to her...things...things went bad. Can you take her with some sort of containment team or something?"
  567. 9:46 PM <PuddleJumper> "She could be dangerous."
  568. 9:47 PM <UltimixRed> "Uuuh...sure? I guess just send them through. Continue your mission if you can." their voice is very confused
  569. 9:48 PM <Kadmus> Conn lifts the girl and walks her through the portal. He deposits her on the other side, and then returns.
  570. 9:48 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix hefts the kid up as carefully as she can. "I'm sorry kid...so sorry...Comming your way Doctor...i'm staying."
  571. 9:50 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix puts the radio in her pocket and glares at Nora and Gun..."We arnt a team. Teams listen to eachother and trust...you jumped in before i could even assess the situation properly....and you....you burned a kid that was already in half...if you do anything close to that again im going to leave you to die
  572. 9:50 PM <SpookyBee> ~... Didn't mean to do it... I'm sorry.~
  573. 9:51 PM <UltimixRed> The portal closes behind them.  
  574. 9:52 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun looks at Skix, "You asked me what to do. I decided. Then the thing attacked Nora. I responded. Where in that was I supposed to ask your opinion?"
  575. 9:52 PM <PuddleJumper> "I think between slaughtering a kid and the fucking explosions you can stay out of my head."
  576. 9:52 PM <UltimixRed> They are now all alone in a room covered in still hot viscera, a soldier's corpse. and many many earmarks that children lived here.
  577. 9:53 PM <Kadmus> Conn investigates, trying to avoid the brewing argument. What were they trying to do here? Is there anywhere he could, say, download stuff onto the USB?
  578. 9:53 PM <UltimixRed> Conrad...please roll me either Perception or Investigation
  579. 9:53 PM <PuddleJumper> "It was a scarred kid...that someone did that to...and the only one that understands her is dead now...you just killed a kid and destroyed anothers life...and one day i hope she comes to talk to you about it."

  583. 9:54 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix watches Conn out of the corner of her eye but keeps her attention focused on Gun and Nora.
  584. 9:54 PM <UltimixRed> They were in fact, really shittily done drawings. Of stuff like Clifford, Winnie the Pooh and a jar of what says mayo.
  585. 9:54 PM <Kadmus> "Oh dear."
  586. 9:54 PM <BobaFettuccine> "They were, eating people where I am from they would have both been condemned to death immediately." Gun says, almost growling.
  587. 9:56 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix looks for the computer they were supposed to find holding he usb. "Fuck you. I know where you two stand...lets finish this so no more monsters escape...you wouldent want something with claws thats all fucked up escapeing to kill more soldiers that experiment on people like me."
  588. 9:56 PM <UltimixRed> Skix, roll perception or investigation

  592. 9:57 PM <SpookyBee> Nora's head turns about the room, scanning for anything else of interest- Maybe a door, even.
  593. 9:57 PM <UltimixRed> Though all the computers in the experiment room seem to be too busted, one of them is on...which the light lets you see a couple old documents that might be of worth.
  594. 9:57 PM <UltimixRed> http://fifthsanctum.com/project-sariel-development-journal Is the info you find on paper, only crumpled and not covered in blood
  595. 9:57 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir shrugs. "And yet, I did not see you eating people. I am judging them solely on actions. Not on appearance." He speaks.
  596. 9:58 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix sits at the computer and inserts her USB stick into it browsing the documents and downloading anything of use as well as reading the ones that looked useful. "I never ate anyone...but im glad i didnt meet you when i was there age..."
  597. 10:00 PM <SpookyBee> She turns her gaze to Skix, eyes simmering for a moment, before the turns her attention and steps out of the door.
  598. 10:02 PM <UltimixRed> Skix is able to transfer a bunch of observational data about the children's growth, a digital copy of the Project SARIEL development journal, and a couple video recordings. Overall...a good haul. There is still the computer room, and exploring more left to do.
  599. 10:03 PM <Kadmus> "Let us move on and finish this," Conn says.
  600. 10:03 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix unplugs her usb..."If i end up dying this is in my front pocket...kid deserves to know where she came from." She pushed past Gun on her way out the door to the computer room to see if she could gather anything useful.
  601. 10:04 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun steps out of the way to make it unnecessary for her to push past and then follows, looking around for any threats.
  602. 10:04 PM <Kadmus> Conn follows at the back. Guess who isn't getting any healing? Nobody, he's too nice a guy for that. But Nora hasn't /asked/ for help yet.
  603. 10:04 PM <UltimixRed> The base is eerily silent. The travel to the computer room is quick, and relatively painless. No heat signatures, no pitter patter of feet, and more corpses. The group reaches the door which no longer has power.
  604. 10:05 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix attempts to open it and failing that she tries to rip it off its hinges

  619. 10:07 PM <BobaFettuccine> (No, the successes on an assist add as extra dice for the person rolling)
  620. 10:07 PM <UltimixRed> Skix uses their claws to rip off the door, which had no real hinges but it's not going to be closing again anytime soon. The computer room is dark, in the back is a server farm that has been shut off, and several row of desktops. On one of them is a half finished bottle of scotch on its side. More soldiers dead, and researchers dead.
  621. 10:07 PM <UltimixRed> The place looks still to be in pretty good condition, if it were rewired, they could probably manage to power up a computer
  622. 10:08 PM <UltimixRed> There are three computers that look viable to the procedure...but failures will probably prevent that trick from working again
  623. 10:09 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix takes out her leatherman and gets to working on the wiring, digging around for wires to splice, she takes a roll of duct tape from her cargo pants and gets spicing

  626. 10:10 PM <UltimixRed> Skix is just barely able to, but the computer that has the half finished bottle of scotch next to it blares to life and restores. There are several corrupted files, but two seem salvageable. An audio recording on Audacity...and an IRC chat log. Which do you open?
  627. 10:11 PM <PuddleJumper> Irc log first, skix puts her usb in to copy the files before opening anything though
  628. 10:11 PM <SpookyBee> Nora would squint but no eyelids. Alas, she senses that, somewhere around her, a wall has broken. Not a first or second wall, but whatever wall is between the third and sixth wall.
  629. 10:11 PM <SpookyBee> *fifth wall
  630. 10:12 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir merely waits, ready for any trouble.

  632. 10:12 PM <UltimixRed> this is the log that Skix manages to download onto the USB.
  633. 10:14 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix finishes it. "Ohhh fuck.." she looks at the bottle of scotch...he didnt get to finish. "We might wanna hurry things up. there might be a time limit they are gonna hit this place i think and we wanna be out before that happens."
  634. 10:14 PM <PuddleJumper> she opens the audio file next.

  637. 10:16 PM <SpookyBee> Listening to the audio log from where she is, Nora's gaze returns to Skix, with accusation that can almost be felt blazing in the back of the serpentine girl's skull...
  638. 10:17 PM <Kadmus> Funny how when you torture innocent children into violent insanity bad things happen, huh? Conn looks to the others. "We should go see to this Soul Purifier. Per'aps bring it back with us, instead of destroy it."
  639. 10:17 PM <PuddleJumper> "They didnt ask to be made, and i didnt ask to be born, but someone gave me a chance." Said Skix as the audio file cut out.
  640. 10:18 PM <PuddleJumper> "Yeah...maybe we can keep some other poor kids from ending up like us...these people here...the soldiers and scientists...they got what they deserved."
  641. 10:19 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix put the usb in her pocket and stood. Face to face with Nora waiting for her to move.
  642. 10:19 PM <SpookyBee> Nora leans down close. "/You gave them a chance/. If they fail that chance, /you/ will regret it." She straightens, and stomps out of the room once more... She doesn't like the idea of having some kind of lichdom magic weapon just waltzing around the school, no sir not at all.
  643. 10:20 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun merely watches impassively. "To the basement then."

  673. 10:30 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir shrugs and starts walking. When there's actually something to fight, he'll start fighting. Otherwise he's on guard for surprise attacks. "We should destroy that machine and leave before the place is destroyed." He says as he walks.

  712. 10:38 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix pulls her leatherman back with a smile just as the door is flattened. "Well...that works to."

  749. 10:49 PM <UltimixRed> Although trying to find the source of the attack without an appropriate psychic power seems hard, Skix is able to locate two important places as well as a room that is covered in protective runes labeled "AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL ONLY". There is the hydroponic garden and maintenance room as well.
  750. 10:50 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun looks at the rune protected room. "That one?" He asks.
  751. 10:50 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix nods to them "The sign room is runed...maybe if we hit the maintenence room first though i can turn the power back on so you all dont get jumped again."
  752. 10:51 PM <Kadmus> "Sounds bien," Conn agrees. "But, ah, per'aps it will power the self destruct, too?"
  753. 10:51 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir shrugs.
  754. 10:52 PM <UltimixRed> The maintenance room is surprisingly not locked, and the door is ajar. A bunch of switches and knobs, but there is a handy lever that says backup generator.
  755. 10:53 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix nods "Thats...uh...didnt think of that. I mean its probally not set to blow people up...still might turn security back on and frag us too...wanna continue in the dark? The locks might come back up too."
  756. 10:54 PM <BobaFettuccine> "I think continuing as we are now is the best idea." Gungnir says, tone neutral.
  757. 10:54 PM <Kadmus> Conn shrugs, and looks towards the hydroponics room.
  758. 10:55 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix nods "We better sweep the other rooms first, nothings comming out of the runed door...remember yes they are trying to kill us...but at least try not to kill them back."
  759. 10:55 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix headded out toward the hydroponics room sniffing...she woundered what plants smelled like that.
  760. 10:55 PM <SpookyBee> Nora simply follows the gang!
  761. 10:56 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir raises an eyebrow at that, following. "I will not hesitate to use lethal force if something attempts to kill me."
  762. 10:56 PM <BobaFettuccine> "Or any of you."
  763. 10:56 PM <UltimixRed> As the group nears the hydroponics room...they all hear the crunch crunch of leaves, it is quite ravenous
  764. 10:58 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix tries to creep into the room ~im going in quiet...try not to do anything that will get me killed~

  768. 11:00 PM <UltimixRed> Skix is able to skulk their way in, and they see 3 things of note. The hydroponics have rows upon rows of ruined lettuce heads. A child with sickly green hair is having a fucking party nomming on this lettuce, and on the other side of the room are giant capsules filled with a strange blue liquid. Children bodies are suspended in the capsules, they look like
  769. 11:00 PM <UltimixRed> the other ones you've seen, the same stuff pumped into the lettuce is going to the kids. Some of the capsule glasses have been smashed open.
  770. 11:02 PM <PuddleJumper> ~Gun...this ones a vegitarian...Nora...try not to blow it up...theres glass tanks full of these things in here...if you go Krakatoa in here you'll set em free..."
  771. 11:03 PM <BobaFettuccine> ~Is it safe to follow?~
  772. 11:03 PM <SpookyBee> Nora huffs, steam blowing from her eye-holes.
  773. 11:04 PM <PuddleJumper> ~Lets try to talk this kid down...maybe we can get him without a fight?~
  774. 11:06 PM <Kadmus> ~I agree.~
  775. 11:07 PM <BobaFettuccine> ~Yes. Though if he attacks he will be treated as a threat.~
  776. 11:07 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix stands up and walks into the room with her claws out. "Hey....uh...kid...look, we came here to get you and uh...yer brothers and sisters out of here...we dont wanna hurt ya ok?"
  777. 11:09 PM <UltimixRed> The kid looks up, still eating that lettuce. "I....am....hungry. It...does...not...stop."
  778. 11:11 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix gives a small laugh and a little smile. "Yeah the others kinda make fun of me for the same thing....you wanna take that stuff with ya and we can go to a place where they will take good care of ya...if anyone can make it stop for ya they can...what'dya say kid?"
  779. 11:12 PM <UltimixRed> They look very panicked still, the seem to be looking at where Conrad is, despite it being dark, and Conrad being behind a wall. "It...won't...stop. Too...hungry."
  780. 11:14 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix nodded. "I know, i got some friends here with me...if i talk to my friend over the radio will you go talk to him? You could bring whatever you want with you...ok?"
  781. 11:15 PM <UltimixRed> the kid seems to be ignoring Skix...too fixated on where Conrad is. The kid is crawling towards them with a predatory light in their eyes
  782. 11:16 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix tries to act first...~Dont kill him, Ok?~
  783. 11:16 PM <SpookyBee> Nora is back with Conny, still. "..."

  789. 11:18 PM <PuddleJumper> (ok....one more try.)
  790. 11:18 PM <PuddleJumper> "Look kid...dont try to hurt my friends. Stay put."

  794. 11:19 PM <UltimixRed> The kid stops themself, taking a long moment for their jerky limbs to stop,and putting two and two together that Skix is in fact threatening them at all. "But...snack." They are still looking at Conrad's position.
  795. 11:20 PM <PuddleJumper> "What snack do you mean...." Skix sniffs seeing if Conn somehow had something on him that was attracting the kid.

  806. 11:22 PM <UltimixRed> Gungnir and Skix remember something about the kid needing to absorb life energy to remain animating from the documents.
  807. 11:23 PM <BobaFettuccine> ~He is going for Conn because Conn has the strongest life energy. That is why they are so hungry. Not for food.~
  808. 11:23 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix looks to conn "Hey....kid...Conn do you think you can keep this kid up and with us? Im not sure how your thing works."
  809. 11:24 PM <Kadmus> ~Can I just...feed him? I do not know. Let me try.~
  810. 11:24 PM <UltimixRed> The child stays put, wary of the tail but it's getting antsy.
  811. 11:25 PM <BobaFettuccine> ~Leave him. We need to finish the mission.~
  812. 11:26 PM <Kadmus> Conn pauses. ~Can we send him back via portal, as with the other? It would be simpler.~
  813. 11:26 PM <PuddleJumper> "Try Conn...we might be able to keep him under control long enough to finish...we could push him through the portal after you try con."
  814. 11:26 PM <Kadmus> Conn shrugs and walks into the room.
  815. 11:26 PM <UltimixRed> The black tentacles emerge from the child's back, slowly wrapping around Conn's torso, does he try resisting the drain?
  816. 11:27 PM <Kadmus> He does not.
  817. 11:27 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun sighs, while those two were doing what they were doing he goes to the rune covered door and tries to open it.
  818. 11:27 PM <UltimixRed> And Conn loses 7 HP, which the child drains and then retracts the tentacles. and after they finish eating, they go to sleep.
  819. 11:28 PM <SpookyBee> Nora does not enjoy this plan of sending the child back...
  820. 11:28 PM <Kadmus> Conn feels a little drained, but is still fully functional. 9/16 HP

  824. 11:28 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix gets on the radio...quietly, "Doctor i got another kid comming your way...this one is unconsious can you get them into containment?"
  825. 11:29 PM <UltimixRed> "Uhh...sure? We've got the other one. They're still chanting he was still alive. I guess i'll ask for clarification after the mission." A green portal opens up.
  826. 11:29 PM <PuddleJumper> "Theres a whole room of ones like them in stasis...and this place might be destroyed fairly soon. What should we do about the others?"
  827. 11:29 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix lifts the kid and sends him through."
  828. 11:30 PM <UltimixRed> "Uhh...if you can send them through we'll do our best. We might not have space for them all."
  829. 11:30 PM <UltimixRed> There are 4 of them in the tubes.
  830. 11:31 PM <SpookyBee> Nora enters the room finally, her gaze on those in the tubes.
  831. 11:31 PM <UltimixRed> As for Gungnir, the runes are pretty complex, but he finds a loophole. A strong strike with perhaps...a runed weapon could short out the protection
  832. 11:31 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix looks at the tubes themselves...is there a way to remove them without taking the kids out of them? Shes pretty strong...and mildly technically adept...perhapse she can get remove them without breaking them open.
  833. 11:32 PM <BobaFettuccine> Well, Gun had one of those. He casts Magic weapon and strikes!

  842. 11:35 PM <UltimixRed> Conrad would notice that these bodies are not finished developing, how them being removed would interact with their strange undeath. He simply has no ide
  843. 11:35 PM <UltimixRed> idea
  844. 11:36 PM <Kadmus> Are the capsules removable, or is it a floor-to-ceiling tube?
  845. 11:36 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix was still looking at how to remove the tanks intact...she had no medical knowlege, her concern was that this place was going to be likely bombed or some other horribal thing soon. She flinched when she heard the runes break
  846. 11:36 PM <UltimixRed> Floor to ceiling tubes...lots of pumps to keep the liquid in them circulating
  847. 11:36 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun then opens the doors now that the runes are gone.
  848. 11:38 PM <Kadmus> Conn shakes his head. ~I do not know what we can do for these children, Skix. I am unsure if they will survive removal.~
  849. 11:38 PM <UltimixRed> Gun is greeted with a great sight and some light. It is a large room with a strange machine making up the majority of the room, which is covered in a grosteque mass of green flesh, with a large red gem nearly twice the size of Gun about 5 meters from the ground. It seems whatever the hell it is, they fused with the machine itself. In front of the machine is
  850. 11:38 PM <UltimixRed> a teenager, around 15 with pale skin and green hair, standing with crossed arms.
  851. 11:40 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix looks to him and then the tubes. "Lets go see what Gun has gotten us into...if we live maybe we can get help from the doctor. We gotta be not dead first though."
  852. 11:40 PM <Kadmus> "C'est vrai." Conn follows her to the rune door.
  853. 11:40 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix heads to where Gun went, Hoping Nora went with him.
  854. 11:41 PM <UltimixRed> The voice is surprisingly normal and not stunted like the other children you've seen. "So, are you here to finish me off." they state matter of factly to Gum.
  855. 11:42 PM <SpookyBee> Nora follows the group still, silent as she's been, and watches the going's-on.

  857. 11:43 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix barrels into the room skidding to a halt, her claws raping the floor loudly as she skidded. ~Woah...jeeze. Gun be cool please...~
  858. 11:44 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun asks her, "Are you the Soul Purifier?"
  859. 11:45 PM <Kadmus> Conn lumbers in at the back, and lets the talky people talk. Oh dear.
  860. 11:46 PM <UltimixRed> "I hate to break it to you, but I don't think these hands are capable of that." The teen in front of Gungnir says "Oooh you mean the giant machine behind me. Yes, they are."  unlike the others...you can definitely tell this one has a female sex. They're also quite sarcastic
  861. 11:47 PM <Kadmus> Change of plans! "Would you like to escape this place, mademoiselle? Sanctum welcomes anomalies of all types, tu sais?" Conn offers.
  862. 11:47 PM <BobaFettuccine> "Step aside. I will destroy that machine, then leave." Gun says, tone neutral.
  863. 11:48 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix spoke up. "Look we really are trying to help...even if some of us arnt the best at uh...well...what Gun said...Really we just dont want anyone to get hurt. You are like us...well, maybe not exactly but we still wanna help you."
  864. 11:48 PM <UltimixRed> The girl looks at Conn with a bemused expression "We all share memories by the way, so we know about your...friend's welcome. I may be a tad bit harder to liquidate." The anger in her voice was covered with a steely calm.
  865. 11:49 PM <SpookyBee> Nora grumbles! Blargh!
  866. 11:49 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix facepalms.
  867. 11:49 PM <Kadmus> "I do not wish to liquidate anyone," Conn says, calmly. "I only want to help you. If you share memories, you must know that, non?"
  868. 11:50 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir shrugs. "If you step aside, I have no plans to harm you."
  869. 11:51 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix nods. "Yeah...besides we got the computers working...they are planning to blow this place up...and soon! We need to get you and those other kids out of here. As well as anyone else in this place!"
  870. 11:51 PM <PuddleJumper> "Gun they are gonna blow the joint up! You dont gotta fight her!"
  871. 11:52 PM <UltimixRed> "Ah, that's reassuring. You are going to not harm me, but my sister. Reassuring, there are 12 of us in total still here. If you desire to fight us Gungnir, I welcome it." They say  with a smirk. "Yes, I had figured they were planning on finishing us all off. How do I know we are not just trading one prison warden for another?"
  872. 11:53 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix shakes her head. "Well...they let this asshole have his own room for one." She tilts her head at Gun
  873. 11:53 PM <PuddleJumper> Skix tilts her head to Nora. "all of us."
  874. 11:54 PM <BobaFettuccine> Gun looks at Skix impassively. "Next time something attempts to kill you, I will allow it to so long as it looks and speaks like a child."
  875. 11:54 PM <UltimixRed> "Also, might I add, the person you so helpfully wiped off the face of the Earth, was in fact still alive. They were going to revive in short order, though even we cannot resurrect from that. "
  876. 11:55 PM <Kadmus> Conn closes his eyes in a wince of pain and suppresses a sad sigh.
  877. 11:55 PM <UltimixRed> You can roll to try detecting a lie
  878. 11:55 PM <PuddleJumper> "Two of us did what we could...they were attacked, that dosent make it right...and us killing eachother now wont make it right either...Im sorry."

  886. 11:57 PM <UltimixRed> Gungnir and Skix are in fact, certain that this person is not lying about this matter. "They're children with no control over their hungers. Imperfect copies of me, although I do understand your hostility, the fact you went above and beyond in your line of duty. I would rather take my chances with the Eye trying to clean us up."

  888. 11:59 PM <Kadmus> "You can control your hunger? Can you teach them?" Conn asks.
  889. 12:00 AM <PuddleJumper> Skix stood in front of gun. "They were eating people...Gun was just trying to protect the rest of us and keep people from getting hurt...and im trying to do that now...come with us, dont make us fight...i tried to keep them from hurting them, and im trying to do the same for you...please dont make me choose."
  890. 12:01 AM <PuddleJumper> "You know we sent two away to help, you can feel them now right? Listen to them!"
  891. 12:02 AM <UltimixRed> "I am SARIEL unit 7. The only one that wasn't a failure. Even though the children are based on my design, something went wrong with the purification process. They will be stuck as immortal children while I age." They say, the monstrosity behind them pulses their red gem with light, much like a heartbeat. "No...we cannot. Unit 9 has a range, they are too far
  892. 12:02 AM <UltimixRed> to connect."
  893. 12:04 AM <PuddleJumper> "We arnt diplomats...we got sent here to contain this, and save who we could...we arnt the ones they send when talking needs to be done, they send us when they need a hard job done. We arnt heartless though...please give us a chance? Its better then waiting to die."
  894. 12:05 AM <BobaFettuccine> Gun looks at Skix. "Technically, I am heartless."
  895. 12:05 AM <Kadmus> ~Ah. I think that the object behind her is the soul nuke they mentione in the dossier, tu sais? I am not certain we /should/ destroy it.~
  896. 12:05 AM <UltimixRed> "Can you at all guarantee our safety? I will give you this, you seem much more compelling than our kidnappers, but even so. A prison is still a prison."  
  897. 12:06 AM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir looks to them. "We come from a school. We are allowed to leave at any time that we wish."
  898. 12:08 AM <PuddleJumper> Skix gave her a shrug. "Im just a student. I dont get to make the choices, but i wasent ordered to come here i did it because i want to help. I cant say for 100% that things will be perfect, but they have been good to us. They people and most of them are good ones." Skix says honestly.
  899. 12:08 AM <PuddleJumper> (They are people.)
  900. 12:08 AM <SpookyBee> "... Student, also." Nora grunts, still big and clumsy! But her fires are died down, now.
  901. 12:09 AM <BobaFettuccine> Gun then looks around. "In any case, it is certainly better than this place."
  902. 12:09 AM <UltimixRed> They seem to think for a moment. "I'll do things myself, if you let me drain your friend there a bit, i'll walk out. Whatever happens next, i'll figure out myself. I don't plan on attacking random civilians."
  903. 12:09 AM <Kadmus> If she's indicating Conn, he steps forward without hesitation.
  904. 12:11 AM <UltimixRed> A black tentacle, much thinner and more precise than the others. The one that had been harassing the group the entire time, and they drain 15 HP. "Thank you, I will remember this favor. I'm taking Units 9 with me, when you kill my sister. Make it quick." and with that, she starts walking past the group and to the door.
  905. 12:12 AM <BobaFettuccine> Gun nods as she leaves and then goes to destroy the soul purifier. Doing so as quickly and efficiently as possible, as requested.
  906. 12:12 AM <Kadmus> Conn sways slightly on his feet, but he's still standing.
  907. 12:13 AM <UltimixRed> How is Gungnir destroying such a massive machine.
  908. 12:14 AM <BobaFettuccine> smashing the gem seems to be the safest bet.
  909. 12:14 AM <PuddleJumper> Skix follows the girl "Wait...please, wont you come with us? The two others, maybe you can help them, and maybe the school can help you out...people will come after you for this...bad people."
  910. 12:15 AM <UltimixRed> "I've already told the children to wait by the entrance. You can bring them to your school. I'll be coming to check up on them with Unit 9."
  911. 12:15 AM <UltimixRed> The gem is massive, Gungnir is not sure he can do it in one go. Retaliation is certainly a possible issue.
  912. 12:16 AM <PuddleJumper> Skix nodded and extended a claw. "Then i trust you."
  913. 12:16 AM <BobaFettuccine> Gungnir goes to Skix. "Give me the explosives."
  914. 12:17 AM <UltimixRed> "Oh, by the way Conrad, there is a small hole near the computer room. It holds a jar of the perfect mayo. " Sariel Unit 7 when they shake Skix's hand. their flesh is room temperature.
  915. 12:17 AM <PuddleJumper> Skix looked up from her extended handshake. "For a gods weapon you sure are impatient!" At least wait till we are out of the room...some of us are made of meat."
  916. 12:18 AM <BobaFettuccine> Gun raises an eyebrow. "I was not going to detonate them yet. Merely set them up." He's not stupid.
  917. 12:18 AM <UltimixRed> Gungnir...can't reach it without a boost of some sort. Or jumping
  918. 12:19 AM <Kadmus> "We should set up the explosives, retrieve the mayonnaise, and prepare a portal out," Conn says. "We can detonate on the other side, should it be required by the authorities."
  919. 12:19 AM <BobaFettuccine> Nothing to climb? He is 6'8"
  920. 12:19 AM <PuddleJumper> Skix unzipped her backpack and gave him the explosives "Good luck then Sariel"
  921. 12:19 AM <Kadmus> Conn can give him a boost up!
  922. 12:20 AM <BobaFettuccine> Gun will get a boost up from Conn, then attach the explosives.
  923. 12:20 AM <UltimixRed> The girl just nods, when out of the ceiling pops out two more like them, for some reason the words weasley twins come to mind as the three of them head upstairs.
  924. 12:21 AM <UltimixRed> Gungnir and Conrad have now put two explosives onto the massive red gem, which feels warm to the touch.
  925. 12:21 AM <PuddleJumper> "What about the kids in the tank a few doors down?"
  926. 12:21 AM <Kadmus> Conn takes a moment to rest his hand on it and whisper. "I am so sorry."
  927. 12:21 AM <UltimixRed> "They're empty vessels. Without 2 souls they're nothing more than flesh."
  928. 12:23 AM <PuddleJumper> Skix nods to Gun and the rest. "Good then lets get out of here."
  929. 12:24 AM <BobaFettuccine> Gun nods. "Let us leave then." He radios in. "Portal out please, mission over."
  930. 12:24 AM <UltimixRed> As the Sariel unit said, there is in fact a plastic jar of mayo, it smells simply divine.  And there are 8 children waiting by the exit of the Base.
  931. 12:25 AM <Kadmus> Conn makes sure to retrieve the mayo!
  932. 12:26 AM <PuddleJumper> Skix holds the detonator...allright lets go. She follows the others through the mess of the base and when they get to the entrence she nods to Gun to blow the thing.
  933. 12:27 AM <UltimixRed> The entire  base shakes as the explosion goes off, a howling scream echoes throughout the base that dies quickly. The portal home is open. >Finish Mission?
  934. 12:27 AM <BobaFettuccine> Gun takes the detonator and sets things to blow. Cue explosions.
  935. 12:27 AM <BobaFettuccine> >Finish Mission
  936. 12:28 AM <PuddleJumper> >finish mission
  937. 12:28 AM <Kadmus> Conn bows his head for a moment, eyes shut, and then walks through the portal, shoulders bowed.
  938. 12:28 AM <Kadmus> >Finish mission
  939. 12:29 AM <UltimixRed> --Mission COMPLETE!--
  940. 12:29 AM <UltimixRed> -- 6 XP  and $400 --
