  1. (4:01:30 PM) Sequence: Eva saunters in, all packed up and ready to go.
  2. (4:01:37 PM) Wombat: Ryan arrives, loaded for bear as usual.
  3. (4:04:20 PM) NullAshton: Dmitri files in, loaded up. He takes a lighter and a small bottle of flammable liquid inside his labcoat, a couple of precautions based on the last time he headed into the pool.
  4. (4:08:21 PM) Daedalize: Director Corbette is standing near the edge of the pool. Several Security officers are present, supervising several D-Class who are hoisting a wooden door and doorframe out of the pool.
  5. (4:08:38 PM) Wombat: "Oh god..."
  6. (4:09:41 PM) Wombat: "What's going on this time?"
  7. (4:09:46 PM) NullAshton: Dmitri watches the d-class subjects suspiciously. He asks Corbette as the door is taken out, "I presume the reason you called us has something to do with that door?"
  8. (4:09:58 PM) Daedalize: "Ah, um, hello Poolboys. As you can see, we have, uh, found something floating in the pool."
  9. (4:10:12 PM) Wombat: "Does this mean we have to go diving again? I hate diving."
  10. (4:10:13 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander wanders onto the scene, pump action shotgun complimenting his standard side arm and pistol
  11. (4:10:20 PM) Sequence: Eva suddenly disappears. She was never there.
  12. (4:10:29 PM) ShadesO`Gray: knife*
  13. (4:11:14 PM) Daedalize: "Yes, we were tracking a possible emergence event, but this door came up instead. We're assuming, therefore, that it, uh, is said emergence."
  14. (4:11:56 PM) Wombat: "Have you tried opening it?"
  15. (4:12:43 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Have we tried ignoring it until it goes away or makes a nuisance of itself?"
  16. (4:12:59 PM) DoubleU left the room (quit: Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
  17. (4:13:21 PM) Daedalize: "The door itself is, well, fairly normal, but it gives off strange readings, almost like something is trying to emerge from the door itself. We fear it may be some kind of extension of the pool."
  18. (4:13:43 PM) DoubleU [Mibbit@CBF7016B.BEF1A99C.7E25B20E.IP] entered the room.
  19. (4:13:57 PM) Wombat: "Is it locked?"
  20. (4:14:03 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Right then...I'll grab a hammer and nail, and we can just nip this thing in the bud."
  21. (4:14:28 PM) NullAshton: "...maybe the pool reproduces somehow, and creates other similar portals."
  22. (4:15:00 PM) Wombat: Ryan advances towards the door, and places his hand on the knob.
  23. (4:15:03 PM) Wombat: "Ready guys?"
  24. (4:15:05 PM) Daedalize: "Not locked, but we did try shooting it before bringing it in, and it seems more durable than we'd expect of a normal door."
  25. (4:15:35 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Well I suppose that rules out the hammer and nail option...
  26. (4:15:36 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "
  27. (4:16:04 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Hold that thought Ryan...."
  28. (4:16:29 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander walks up to the door with a length of rope, tying one end about the knob, before stepping back...
  29. (4:16:33 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Safety first..."
  30. (4:17:25 PM) Wombat: "How you going to open it without rotating the knob?"
  31. (4:18:49 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Hmm, that is a ponderance..."
  32. (4:18:50 PM) NullAshton: "...so an unknown door, and you just want to open it right here? Can we at the very least get this to a safe location first, where anything that emerges from the door can be more easily contained?"
  33. (4:20:02 PM) Daedalize: "We'd have preferred to, but whatever seems to be emerging from it is coming too fast to get proper security in place. It has to be dealt with as quickly as possible."
  34. (4:20:08 PM) Wombat: "Hey, this place has the largest blast doors..."
  35. (4:20:48 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander passes Ryan his ID badge, "Here wedge this between the frame and the knob, and then get the hell back."
  36. (4:21:04 PM) Wombat: Ryan shrugs, does so, then backs off and raises his gun.
  37. (4:21:41 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander, standing roughly 8 feet away from the door, gives a firm pull on the rope...
  38. (4:22:01 PM) VAE [~danman@synIRC-33D244BB.nat.csx.cam.ac.uk] entered the room.
  39. (4:22:39 PM) Daedalize: The door flies open, revealing... it looks just like the surface of the pool, only rotated 90 degrees and fitted within the door frame.
  40. (4:23:10 PM) Daedalize: The liquid wall is opaque, but there are small ripples in it.
  41. (4:23:39 PM) Wombat: "Woah."
  42. (4:23:41 PM) NullAshton: "Miniature pool. Great."
  43. (4:23:41 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Heh...didn't see that coming..."
  44. (4:23:50 PM) Wombat: Ryan picks up a rock, and tosses it at the surface.
  45. (4:24:37 PM) VAE: The door open , and Sandor chases in, apparently having been busy recently - there's a fresh solder burn on one of his hands, and a coil of wire pokes out from his pocket.
  46. (4:24:50 PM) Daedalize: The rock disappears into the surface. Oddly, it doesn't ripple or splash on impact.
  47. (4:24:58 PM) Wombat: "Huh..."
  48. (4:25:09 PM) Wombat: "Anyone got a camera on a stick?"
  49. (4:25:33 PM) Daedalize: Roll Pdef, Ryan.
  50. (4:25:40 PM) VAE: "Technician Munkas reporting."
  51. (4:25:42 PM) Wombat: 6df+5 Fack
  52. (4:25:42 PM) Glacon: Wombat: Fack: 3 (6df+5=-, -, 0, +, -, 0)
  53. (4:26:08 PM) Daedalize: The rock shoots back out of the doorframe at high speed, narrowly missing Ryan's head.
  54. (4:26:23 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Well, that's interesting."
  55. (4:26:29 PM) Wombat: "Okaaaay... I guess it doesn't want rocks..."
  56. (4:26:37 PM) Wombat: Ryan picks up a stick, and slowly pushes it in.
  57. (4:26:57 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Circles around the door, to get a look at the other side
  58. (4:27:10 PM) Daedalize: About halfway in, the stick stops, as though hitting a wall.
  59. (4:27:24 PM) Daedalize: The other side looks exactly the same, though no stick protrudes through.
  60. (4:27:34 PM) Wombat: "Huh." He lets go of the stick, and steps back.
  61. (4:27:34 PM) VAE: "What the hell's going on?"
  62. (4:28:06 PM) Daedalize: The stick is ejected from the door, though not as violently as the rock was.
  63. (4:28:11 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Door made of 'redpool stuff,' doesn't like rocks or sticks apparently..." accommodates Vander
  64. (4:28:29 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "You got a camera, technician?"
  65. (4:28:58 PM) Daedalize: Salman coughs. "Um, we believe the door may act similarly to the pool itself. That is, you'll have to enter it to reach whatever is emerging."
  66. (4:29:07 PM) VAE: "Camera? Of course!"
  67. (4:29:33 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Well lets try and get a look at what we're up against then...
  68. (4:29:35 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "
  69. (4:30:08 PM) NullAshton: "...entering it. Is there a reason why rocks apparently won't stay inside, but people will?"
  70. (4:30:43 PM) VAE: "What should I take a pic of? Just set the camera to auto-timer and poke it through?"
  71. (4:30:56 PM) Daedalize: Salman shrugs, looking uncomfortable.
  72. (4:30:58 PM) Wombat: "Well, we're going to have to go in eventually..."
  73. (4:31:05 PM) Wombat: Ryan grits his teeth.
  74. (4:31:06 PM) Feierzeit [Mibbit@synIRC-48EABF2F.hsd1.mn.comcast.net] entered the room.
  75. (4:31:19 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "No doubt, but lets try and take it one step at a time..."
  76. (4:32:02 PM) Scantron left the room (quit: NickServ (GHOST command used by Feierzeit)).
  77. (4:32:07 PM) Feierzeit is now known as Scantron
  78. (4:32:17 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Whatever works, just give an indication of what I need to shoot."
  79. (4:33:06 PM) Scantron: Green rolls in. "Sorry I'm late. What did I miss."
  80. (4:33:08 PM) VAE: "/w 4
  81. (4:33:36 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Door made of red pool stuff, bout to stick a camera in it and see what needs shooting..."
  82. (4:33:55 PM) Scantron: "Sounds like a plan."
  83. (4:34:09 PM) VAE: "Ookay, anyone got anything I can fix the camera on?"
  84. (4:34:15 PM) VAE: 6df+3 perception to find.
  85. (4:34:16 PM) Glacon: VAE: perception to find.: 4 (6df+3=0, -, +, +, -, +)
  86. (4:34:30 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander offers a stick and his rope
  87. (4:34:44 PM) Wombat: Ryan waits.
  88. (4:35:17 PM) ShadesO`Gray: 6ef+6 ties the camera to the stick
  89. (4:35:27 PM) ShadesO`Gray: 6df+6 ties the camera to the stick
  90. (4:35:28 PM) Glacon: ShadesO`Gray: ties the camera to the stick: 7 (6df+6=-, -, +, +, +, 0)
  91. (4:35:43 PM) VAE: (i was just about to do that)
  92. (4:35:43 PM) Daedalize: The camera is pretty secure.
  93. (4:36:15 PM) VAE: "Okay, hand it to me"
  94. (4:36:32 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Passes it off, and then noticable steps back away from the door
  95. (4:36:36 PM) ***NullAshton stays back away from the door, in case the door doesn't like cameras being inserted into it..
  96. (4:36:59 PM) VAE: "Sandor sets the camera's timer to thirty seconds, then walks forth and attempts to poke it in."
  97. (4:37:07 PM) VAE: (arch, why are there quotes)
  98. (4:37:16 PM) VAE: (also , should I roll somethign?)
  99. (4:37:31 PM) ShadesO`Gray: (Don't think so...)
  100. (4:37:49 PM) Daedalize: The camera slides in, up to the same point where the stick had stopped previously.
  101. (4:38:13 PM) Daedalize: But when the stick is withdrawn, the camera and rope are missing!
  102. (4:38:33 PM) VAE: "Bloody hell... "
  103. (4:38:55 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander sighs heavily, "Fuck...was afraid of that..."
  104. (4:38:55 PM) VAE: "That either was fixed shitty, or the pool ate it."
  105. (4:39:06 PM) Scantron: "I'm guessing demons."
  106. (4:39:10 PM) Wombat: "Well, here goes nothing. If I'm not back in five minutes... "
  107. (4:39:20 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Okay...who volunteers to go first onetwothreenotit"
  108. (4:39:20 PM) Wombat: Ryan slowly walks toward the door.
  109. (4:39:35 PM) VAE: 6df+4 Science - does signs of acid damage or anything on the stick, that could help ascertain what happened?
  110. (4:39:35 PM) Glacon: VAE: Science - does signs of acid damage or anything on the stick, that could help ascertain what happened?: 3 (6df+4=+, -, 0, 0, -, 0)
  111. (4:39:49 PM) Wombat: Ryan walks into the door.
  112. (4:39:51 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Just poke your head out if your still alive
  113. (4:39:53 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "
  114. (4:39:56 PM) Daedalize: Nope. Stick is perfectly fine.
  115. (4:40:36 PM) Daedalize: As Ryan steps through, he feels wet for a moment, like he'd stepped into the pool itself. Then the feeling recedes, and he's standing in... an apartment?
  116. (4:40:42 PM) Sequence left the room (quit: Ping timeout).
  117. (4:41:05 PM) Wombat: He turns in a full circle, and reconnoiters.
  118. (4:41:12 PM) Wombat: 6df+6 What's up in here?
  119. (4:41:12 PM) Glacon: Wombat: What's up in here?: 7 (6df+6=-, +, +, -, 0, +)
  120. (4:41:15 PM) VAE: "Fuck.. nothing happened to the stick.. it's like.. it selectively ate the thing alone"
  121. (4:41:33 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Or someone just took the the camera..."
  122. (4:41:34 PM) Scantron: "So it's probably a smart demon or something."
  123. (4:41:51 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "God I hate it when they're smart..."
  124. (4:41:51 PM) VAE: "Green.. there are no demons."
  125. (4:42:09 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Says he whom has probably never done field work before..."
  126. (4:42:17 PM) VAE: "It's just... something's doing sweaty, hot things down there... to physics itself"
  127. (4:42:28 PM) Daedalize: Behind him is an open door, leading onto an empty hallway. A single light flickers on the hallway ceiling. The apartment itself looks to be a loft of some sort, with an open door at the far end leading onto a bedroom.
  128. (4:43:04 PM) NullAshton: "Right. Anyone else want to go in?"
  129. (4:43:13 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Checks the time, and wanders what's taking Ryan so long with the whole 'sticking his head out' part...
  130. (4:43:21 PM) Daedalize: It's very spartan, with no decorations besides plain, wooden furniture.
  131. (4:43:42 PM) Wombat: <<It's an apartment.>>
  132. (4:44:08 PM) Daedalize: Ryan's radio transmission does not reach the others.
  133. (4:44:17 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Well I didn't get all dressed up for nothing I suppose..." says Vander, before simple walking past the threshold...
  134. (4:44:42 PM) Sequence [~chatzilla@synIRC-7E4CA83A.client.mchsi.com] entered the room.
  135. (4:45:05 PM) Daedalize: Vander has a similar experience as Ryan. Ryan sees him step out of nothing into the apartment, where the doorframe is.
  136. (4:45:11 PM) Sequence is now known as AwaySeq
  137. (4:45:31 PM) Wombat: Ryan covers him, then lowers the rifle.
  138. (4:45:35 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Woh...that was an experience..."
  139. (4:45:41 PM) Scantron: Green turns to Sandor. "Should we go after them?
  140. (4:45:42 PM) Scantron: "
  141. (4:45:58 PM) VAE: "You seen what happen to the camera?"
  142. (4:46:01 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "So...anything trying to eat us yet?"
  143. (4:46:21 PM) Wombat: "Nope." Ryan turns on his IR scope, and peers at the room through it.
  144. (4:46:41 PM) ShadesO`Gray: 6df+6 Looks for the camera...
  145. (4:46:41 PM) Glacon: ShadesO`Gray: Looks for the camera...: 7 (6df+6=+, +, -, +, 0, -)
  146. (4:46:43 PM) Scantron: "I figure if it wanted us dead, it could've killed us already."
  147. (4:47:00 PM) NullAshton: "Or perhaps just lazy, and wants us to come to it."
  148. (4:47:01 PM) Wombat: 6df+6 IR
  149. (4:47:02 PM) Glacon: Wombat: IR: 6 (6df+6=+, -, 0, +, -, 0)
  150. (4:47:09 PM) Daedalize: Nothing of note, though Ryan now notices that the windows have no light coming through them, and are as cold as the rest of the room.
  151. (4:47:27 PM) Wombat: "Windows are fake..."
  152. (4:47:30 PM) VAE: "Yeah... who knows?"
  153. (4:47:40 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Did you try opening them?"
  154. (4:47:42 PM) VAE: "We ain't lemmings , man"
  155. (4:47:51 PM) VAE: "Until those are coming back, am not going in."
  156. (4:47:57 PM) Wombat: "Not yet. Might not be a good idea, though. No light coming through, and no temperature difference."
  157. (4:48:13 PM) Scantron: "That's true. We shoulda told them when to come out if it was safe. I say we give 'em an hour."
  158. (4:48:14 PM) VAE: "Happened in Egypt.. a bunch of folks walked into a well, one by one, after a chicken."
  159. (4:48:19 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Right...so do we wait for back up, or venture boldly into the unknown?"
  160. (4:48:40 PM) VAE: "All dead... it got written off as drowning, but one of our guys was at the case."
  161. (4:49:13 PM) NullAshton: "You've worked here a while then?"
  162. (4:49:52 PM) VAE: "Well, not a long while, but yeah."
  163. (4:49:52 PM) Wombat: "Clear the closed rooms. Then check the hallway."
  164. (4:50:09 PM) DoubleU left the room (quit: Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
  165. (4:50:12 PM) Wombat: Ryan leads the way into the bedroom.
  166. (4:50:40 PM) VAE: "I just overheard that tidbit in the rec room on site 19.. was talking to a lady, see."
  167. (4:50:46 PM) DoubleU [Mibbit@8CC48217.541FB72E.7E25B20E.IP] entered the room.
  168. (4:50:51 PM) Daedalize: There is a closet, hanging open with nothing inside, and a closed door, presumably to a bathroom. No bed, only a wooden dresser in one corner.
  169. (4:50:51 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Covers his back with the pistol, eyes tracing the corners of the room
  170. (4:51:00 PM) Wombat: Ryan looks in the dresser.
  171. (4:51:26 PM) Daedalize: The drawers seem to be jammed. Roll athletics.
  172. (4:51:35 PM) NullAshton: "...if it's anything like the previous incursion into the pool I was along with, there's probably some sort of other dimension on the other side. Not sure how we actually got back though, we just woke back up here."
  173. (4:51:50 PM) Wombat: 6df+6
  174. (4:51:52 PM) Scantron: "That does keep happening."
  175. (4:52:03 PM) VAE: "Yeah.. like that submarine.."
  176. (4:52:06 PM) Wombat: 6df+6 Damn Drawers
  177. (4:52:06 PM) Glacon: Wombat: Damn Drawers: 5 (6df+6=0, 0, -, 0, +, -)
  178. (4:52:11 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander hugs the wall next to the 'bathroom' and gently nudges the door knob...
  179. (4:52:38 PM) Daedalize: 6df+6 Fuck you, I don't open when you tell me!
  180. (4:52:38 PM) Glacon: Daedalize: Fuck you, I don't open when you tell me!: 5 (6df+6=0, -, -, +, -, +)
  181. (4:53:29 PM) Daedalize: The drawer finally gives way and opens, though Ryan is pulling hard enough that he winds up falling back when it does.
  182. (4:53:40 PM) Wombat: Ryan looks in the drawer that is now in his lap.
  183. (4:54:15 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander spares a look at Ryan, and deciding the stealth was now well and trully dead, just opens the door he had been nudging
  184. (4:54:23 PM) Daedalize: There is a rushing noise, and a gust of wind seems to blow around him for a moment. Roll Perception.
  185. (4:54:29 PM) Daedalize: (Ryan, that is.)
  186. (4:54:53 PM) Wombat: 6df+6
  187. (4:54:53 PM) Glacon: Wombat: 6 (6df+6=0, -, 0, +, +, -)
  188. (4:55:53 PM) NullAshton: Dmitri stays outside. He's not going in until some other people go in at least. That thing still makes him nervous.
  189. (4:56:01 PM) Daedalize: For a moment, though squinting from the wind, Ryan sees... a box? He blinks once, and there is nothing there. The gust has died away.
  190. (4:56:11 PM) Scantron: Green drums his fingers on his wheelchair. He tries to whistle but he's not very good at it.
  191. (4:56:18 PM) Wombat: Ryan runs his hands along the inside of the box.
  192. (4:56:22 PM) Wombat: *drawer
  193. (4:56:40 PM) Daedalize: Vander's door is locked.
  194. (4:57:18 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Dah, fuck..."
  195. (4:57:22 PM) ShadesO`Gray: 6df+6 Pick the Lock like a BOSS
  196. (4:57:22 PM) Glacon: ShadesO`Gray: Pick the Lock like a BOSS: 5 (6df+6=-, -, -, +, 0, +)
  197. (4:58:46 PM) VAE: "Sandor stays outside too, fiddling with a pencil nervously"
  198. (4:58:48 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Don't lock a door unless your hiding something..."
  199. (5:00:12 PM) Daedalize: Ryan finds nothing. The drawer is apparently empty.
  200. (5:00:13 PM) Scantron: "Nice third person talkin' ya got there."
  201. (5:00:23 PM) Wombat: "Damn."
  202. (5:00:58 PM) Wombat: Ryan stands up, and walks over to the door.
  203. (5:00:59 PM) Daedalize: Vander almost gets the door open, but his lockpick is brittle, and breaks.
  204. (5:01:04 PM) Wombat: "Need some help there?"
  205. (5:01:41 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Nah, just need to knock a little harder it seems..."
  206. (5:02:18 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Stand clear please," says Vander, before leveling his shotgun at the door knob
  207. (5:02:22 PM) Wombat: Ryan feeds a belt into his Shrike, and works the cocking handle.
  208. (5:02:33 PM) Wombat: "Knock Knock, Mosackra."
  209. (5:05:12 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "On three then, one, two, three."
  210. (5:05:29 PM) ShadesO`Gray: 6df+4 KNOCK SHOTGUN SHELL KNOCK
  211. (5:05:29 PM) Glacon: ShadesO`Gray: KNOCK SHOTGUN SHELL KNOCK: 4 (6df+4=0, -, +, 0, -, +)
  212. (5:07:10 PM) Daedalize: The door is blown off of its hinges, and...
  213. (5:07:19 PM) Daedalize: Roll Pdef, Ryan and Vander.
  214. (5:07:31 PM) ShadesO`Gray: 6df+6 BARREL ROLL
  215. (5:07:32 PM) Glacon: ShadesO`Gray: BARREL ROLL: 6 (6df+6=+, 0, -, +, -, 0)
  216. (5:07:42 PM) Wombat: 6df+5 Fuck you
  217. (5:07:43 PM) Glacon: Wombat: Fuck you: 9 (6df+5=0, +, +, +, +, 0)
  218. (5:10:33 PM) Daedalize: The door flies back outward, accompanied by a massive blast of wind and water. Ryan manages to dodge to the side of the doorway, but Vander is hit head-on. -1 Body
  219. (5:11:05 PM) Wombat: "The Hell?"
  220. (5:12:10 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Fuck..." growls Vander, going prone from where he had been knocked down, and training his sights on the room...
  221. (5:12:21 PM) ShadesO`Gray: 6df+6 Can I see what's inside?
  222. (5:12:22 PM) Glacon: ShadesO`Gray: Can I see what's inside?: 7 (6df+6=-, +, -, +, +, 0)
  223. (5:12:32 PM) Wombat: Ryan is sorely tempted to frag the room.
  224. (5:12:51 PM) Scantron: "So, how 'bout that local sports team?"
  225. (5:13:09 PM) Daedalize: It is a bathroom, though obviously the worse for the blast that just came out of it. The toilet is shattered, and water is all over.
  226. (5:13:23 PM) Wombat: "Damn."
  227. (5:13:33 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Indeed..."
  228. (5:13:46 PM) NullAshton: "Don't follow sports much."
  229. (5:14:02 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander pulls himself to his feet, poking his head into the room, giving a through once over
  230. (5:14:03 PM) Wombat: 6df+6 Any sign of what caused this?
  231. (5:14:04 PM) Glacon: Wombat: Any sign of what caused this?: 7 (6df+6=0, -, +, +, +, -)
  232. (5:14:59 PM) Daedalize: Ryan notices that the glass shower broke away from the sink, which has a still-closed cabinet under it.
  233. (5:15:15 PM) AwaySeq left the room (quit: Ping timeout).
  234. (5:15:18 PM) Wombat: Ryan opens the cabinet.
  235. (5:15:22 PM) Daedalize: (The glass shattered outwards from the origin of the blast, in other words.)
  236. (5:15:29 PM) Daedalize: It is stuck shut.
  237. (5:15:55 PM) Wombat: 6df+6 Open Sesame!

  243. (5:17:31 PM) Daedalize: As the door is blown open, a jet of high-pressure water shoots out like a fire hose, knocking Ryan on his ass again.
  244. (5:17:52 PM) Daedalize: The floor is harder in here, and it hurts like hell. -1 Body.
  245. (5:18:14 PM) ShadesO`Gray: 6df+6 Where is the water coming from?
  246. (5:18:15 PM) Glacon: ShadesO`Gray: Where is the water coming from?: 6 (6df+6=-, +, 0, -, +, 0)
  247. (5:18:24 PM) Wombat: "God-Damn! We sure could use some backup in here!"
  248. (5:19:19 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Yes, the more soaking wet, and frustrated armed individuals running about this apartment possibly located in Hell the better..."
  249. (5:23:31 PM) Wombat: Ryan attempts to re-close the door.
  250. (5:29:48 PM) Daedalize: The water is spraying from a burst pipe underneath the sink. After a moment, the pressure dies down, and Vander can see that it was burst by Ryan's gunshot.
  251. (5:30:06 PM) Daedalize: With the pressurized jet of water gone, the door closes easily.
  252. (5:31:11 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Right...now that I'm soaked in water that just as friggen cold as the rest of this place...mayhaps we should move on."
  253. (5:31:20 PM) Wombat: Ryan never fired...
  254. (5:35:05 PM) Daedalize: *pipe was burst inward, as if by a gunshot
  255. (5:35:17 PM) Wombat: "Okay, who shot the pipe?"
  256. (5:35:46 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Didn't see..."
  257. (5:35:58 PM) Wombat: "Wasn't me."
  258. (5:36:17 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Would've been a hole on the outside of the door if it was me..."
  259. (5:37:09 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander looks about the room...twitching slightly and unknowingly fingering his knife...
  260. (5:37:18 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Come on, lets keep moving."
  261. (5:37:27 PM) Wombat: "Okay, Next door..."
  262. (5:38:08 PM) Wombat: Ryan hauls himself up, shakes the water out of his Shrike, and heads for the hallway.
  263. (5:38:52 PM) Daedalize: The light there is still flickering, erratically. There are 3 doors besides the one they entered through, but the numbers are all scratched out.
  264. (5:38:53 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander follows in his wake, changing his shells out for dry rounds
  265. (5:39:29 PM) Wombat: Ryan tries the first door.
  266. (5:41:15 PM) Daedalize: Locked. He's starting to sense a pattern here.
  267. (5:41:20 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander presses his ear to the first door, and gives a good hard listen
  268. (5:41:26 PM) ShadesO`Gray: 6df+6

  271. (5:41:45 PM) Daedalize: Vander hears nothing from the other side.
  272. (5:41:54 PM) Scantron left the room (quit: Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
  273. (5:42:30 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Okay...look I'm probably a big a fan of water works as you are, but lets wait and look for a door that isn't locked before we continue testing our luck..."
  274. (5:43:00 PM) Wombat: "Never said anything about bullets.

  277. (5:43:26 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander stands noticeably clear
  278. (5:43:34 PM) Wombat: Ryan plants a combat boot right where the deadbolt is.
  279. (5:44:43 PM) Daedalize: The door slams open... then another blast of wind hits Ryan. Roll Athletics.
  280. (5:45:03 PM) Wombat: 6df+6

  283. (5:46:04 PM) Daedalize: Ryan is sent stumbling back and trips, falling against the wall. That's going to bruise. -1 Body
  284. (5:46:18 PM) Wombat: "Fuck!"
  285. (5:46:26 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Are we starting to see my point yet?"
  286. (5:46:27 PM) Daedalize: Oddly, though, the wind isn't dissipating this time. It keeps blowing out of the open door.
  287. (5:47:21 PM) ShadesO`Gray: 6df+6 Vander braces himself and takes a good look inside...
  288. (5:47:22 PM) Glacon: ShadesO`Gray: Vander braces himself and takes a good look inside...: 1 (6df+6=-, -, 0, -, -, -)
  289. (5:48:19 PM) Daedalize: The fierce wind causes him to close his eyes as he tries to look, and he is forced to pull his head back.
  290. (5:48:34 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Damn it..."
  291. (5:48:57 PM) Wombat: Ryan presses his eye to his IR scope, and peeks around the corner with it.

  294. (5:49:44 PM) Daedalize: Nothing stands out. The room is just as cold, if not colder, than the rest of the rooms Ryan's been in.
  295. (5:50:13 PM) Daedalize: Both of you, roll Perception.

  300. (5:51:22 PM) Daedalize: As they glance around, the two notice that there is water on the floor. It leads up the hall to one of the other doors, the one furthest from them.
  301. (5:52:38 PM) Wombat: Ryan grimaces, and heads towards the door.
  302. (5:52:45 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander looks to Ryan and very quickly says, "Nose goes," before putting his finger to his nose
  303. (5:53:04 PM) Wombat: "Go fuck yourself."
  304. (5:53:47 PM) Wombat: Ryan drops down to one knee, and puts a burst through the lock from a distance just in case.

  308. (5:54:38 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Harsh..."says Vander, forming up to Ryan's right
  309. (5:55:50 PM) Daedalize: The lock is shot clean through, and the door blows open just as the other has. This time, though, there's also water pouring out.
  310. (5:56:29 PM) Daedalize: You can faintly hear a sound like the jet of water from the bathroom.
  311. (5:56:44 PM) Wombat: "And this is why you stand back."
  312. (5:56:49 PM) Wombat: Ryan slowly advances.
  313. (5:57:32 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Yes sir," says Vander, mock saluting in Ryan's wake, "wwwayyy back sir," he says mostly to himself
  314. (5:58:10 PM) Wombat: "I heard that."
  315. (5:58:39 PM) Daedalize: The wind isn't as strong coming out of this room, but the ceiling seems to have collapsed in places, and there is a ruptured pipe with water pouring out into the room. It's almost up to the top of Ryan's boots.
  316. (5:58:52 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Well your hearing good, alright I'll make a note of that for future reference..."
  317. (5:59:20 PM) ShadesO`Gray: 6df+6 Look up through the collapsed ceiling

  321. (6:01:00 PM) Daedalize: It's dark up there, but Ryan can just about make out another room above them.
  322. (6:01:10 PM) Wombat: "Let's go up. Got any rope?"
  323. (6:02:36 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Sure, but I'm a bit short on hooks..." says Vander, eying the caved in roof suspiciously,"Besides that the roof already caved in, do we really want to put MORE stress on that?
  324. (6:02:39 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "

  330. (6:05:34 PM) Daedalize: Unfortunately, the waterlogged floor beneath them cannot hold the additional weight of two men, and begins to give way. Ryan manages to leap aside, but Vander slips and drops beneath the water into the room below.
  331. (6:05:55 PM) Wombat: Ryan looks down. "You okay?"
  332. (6:06:13 PM) Daedalize: Said room is entirely flooded, and the water is cold as ice.
  333. (6:06:53 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander Breaks the surface of the water...coughing and dragging himself clear, "Yea...p-p-peachy."
  334. (6:08:50 PM) Daedalize: The hall outside is now flooded just as badly as the room they are in, and the wind stills howls from the other room back up the hall.
  335. (6:08:56 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander shakes the water out of both his pistol and his shotgun, exchanging dry ammo from his weather-lined bag for both...
  336. (6:09:17 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Okay...up s-s-sounding decidedly better by the minute."
  337. (6:11:12 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander pulls his rope from his pack and passes it to Ryan, offering his shotgun as the impromptu 'hook'
  338. (6:15:35 PM) Wombat: Ryan takes the shotgun, and looks for a place to wedge it.
  339. (6:15:50 PM) Wombat: *secure the rope

  341. (6:15:58 PM) Glacon: Wombat: 6 (6df+6=0, +, +, 0, -, -)
  342. (6:17:22 PM) Daedalize: Ryan manages to loop the impromptu hook around one of the less-damaged pipes, giving them a way up to the floor above them.
  343. (6:17:36 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Ladies first."
  344. (6:18:06 PM) Wombat: Ryan rolls his eyes, and climbs up.
  345. (6:18:51 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander keeps his eyes on the hallway, not particularly encouraged by the still howling wind
  346. (6:22:10 PM) Daedalize: The room above is dry, and contains no furniture. A single door stands open, leading to another room.
  347. (6:22:30 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Anything looking hungry for faces yet?":
  348. (6:22:35 PM) Wombat: "Nope."
  349. (6:22:42 PM) Wombat: Ryan waits for Vander to come up.
  350. (6:23:03 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "I'm almost disappointed," grumbles Vander before climbing up himself
  351. (6:26:18 PM) Dae [~Daedalize@synIRC-15CDF17A.pn.at.cox.net] entered the room.

  357. (6:27:55 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander retrieves his shotgun, and follows in his wake
  358. (6:28:02 PM) ShadesO`Gray: *and rope
  359. (6:29:28 PM) Daedalize: This room is much larger than the others they've been in, taking up most of the floor. In the center, illuminated by a spotlight hanging in the rafters, is a wooden pedestal with a familiar box atop it.
  360. (6:29:48 PM) Wombat: Familiar? How so?
  361. (6:29:58 PM) Wombat: 6df+6 WTF is with this box?

  366. (6:30:40 PM) Daedalize: Ryan faintly recalls seeing such a box in the dresser he first opened. It's a jewelry box, shut and locked.
  367. (6:30:57 PM) Wombat: He carefully picks it up.
  368. (6:31:03 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander moves behind him scanning the room for movement...and the floor for weaknesses
  369. (6:31:26 PM) Daedalize: Roll Perception, Ryan.

  372. (6:32:16 PM) Daedalize: Ryan notices a trembling in the floor under his feet.
  373. (6:32:44 PM) Wombat: Ryan dives for the safe section. "It's gonna collapse!"
  374. (6:32:59 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Aw Fuck not again," Vander dives
  375. (6:33:15 PM) Daedalize: The floor bursts upward as Ryan leaps aside, water streaming forth into the air.
  376. (6:34:03 PM) Wombat: Ryan figures that what's causing this must be in the box. He puts the blade of his combat knife where the latch should be, and pries.
  377. (6:34:10 PM) Daedalize: More and more jets erupt around the two. Then, the water stops and comes together, forming a sphere in the air, at least 3 meters across.
  378. (6:34:22 PM) Daedalize: Roll Athletics, Ryan.
  379. (6:34:29 PM) Wombat: 6df+6 Bugger

  381. (6:34:52 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander levels his shotgun at the sphere, but holds fire for now...
  382. (6:35:06 PM) Daedalize: He cannot get it open, and suddenly a stream of water shoots out from the sphere and knocks the box from his hands.
  383. (6:35:25 PM) Daedalize: Said box lands on the floor several feet away, and the water makes as if to encircle it.
  384. (6:35:46 PM) ShadesO`Gray: Vander cursing under his breath the whole way makes a dive for the box
  385. (6:35:51 PM) Wombat: 6df+10 Ryan dives for the box, tagging "Practical Man".

  391. (6:37:30 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Damn it, why is it always the face..."
  392. (6:37:39 PM) Daedalize: Tendrils of water are leaping out from the sphere in all directions now, as if readying to attack.

  398. (6:38:24 PM) Wombat: The water should also contain the fragments.
  399. (6:38:42 PM) Wombat: Ryan makes his best baseball pitch at the center of the sphere.
  400. (6:40:24 PM) Daedalize: The grenade splashes into the sphere, then detonates, sending a good deal of water flying in all directions. The tendrils are forced to draw back as the water-being reforms itself.
  401. (6:41:42 PM) Daedalize: Vander, roll Pdef.

  404. (6:43:05 PM) Daedalize: Suddenly, one of the walls near Vander explodes inwards, as a massive gust of wind sweeps him off his feet. He is sent tumbling to the other side of the room. -1 Body

  407. (6:44:20 PM) Daedalize: The light plummets straight through the water blob, forcing it to once again draw its tendrils in to maintain mass.
  408. (6:44:46 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "OMPF...that was possibly a rib..." says Vander pushing himself to his feet

  411. (6:47:34 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "Just...pass me the box already, and keep the water off me..." shouts Vander, pulling his emergency lock pick free
  412. (6:47:44 PM) Wombat: Ryan slides Vander the box.
  413. (6:47:48 PM) Daedalize: The wind howls in through the breached wall, sweeping Ryan's thrown grenade away.
  414. (6:48:10 PM) Daedalize: Now the wind and water are merging, forming a miniature waterspout in the middle of the room.
  415. (6:48:26 PM) Daedalize: It lunges after the box, towards Vander.
  416. (6:48:29 PM) Wombat: "Whirlpool, huh? Those like to suck things in. Well why don't you SUCK ON THESE
  417. (6:48:37 PM) Daedalize: Roll Pdef, Vander.
  418. (6:48:46 PM) Scantron [Mibbit@synIRC-48EABF2F.hsd1.mn.comcast.net] entered the room.

  423. (6:50:23 PM) Daedalize: Expecting the attack once the box was passed, Vander barely manages to dodge and escape uninjured. The box, however, is swept up into the whirlwind.
  424. (6:51:20 PM) Daedalize: Ryan's grenades are knocked out of his hands by a tendril of water before he can pull the pins, and roll away across the floor.
  425. (6:52:10 PM) ShadesO`Gray: "GOD DAMN IT ALL TO THE BURNING LAKE OF SULFER WE'RE PROBABLY ALREADY IN" shouts Vander, bracing his rope about his chest, and wedging the shotgun into the rafters

  649. (1:31:55 AM) Salmander: Fred gets a harsher than average headache
  650. (1:32:45 AM) minmin: Fred can't exactly give a witty reply due to the FUCKING PAIN IN HIS SKULL ARGH
  651. (1:33:47 AM) Sequence: Eva shifts around a bit, trying to provide enough cover for Stoat to disappear if she wants to. Maybe Fred will go away soon.
  652. (1:34:45 AM) minmin: and Fred does, to go find an aspirin. Mysterious balls, a headache, and a sentient (?) heart, oh my.
  653. (1:36:22 AM) Soulless: Stoat is out of hiding. "I don't know how to deal with people suddenly appearing."
  654. (1:36:59 AM) Sequence: Eva shrugs. "Nah, it's cool. Surprises aren't everyone's thing."
  655. (1:37:27 AM) minmin: "People suddenly appearing, she's one to talk." Frederic says out of earshot.
  656. (1:38:50 AM) Soulless: She doesn't suddenly appear until people look for her.
  657. (1:39:16 AM) Soulless: "The radio mentioned something about a silver teleporting ball."
  658. (1:39:39 AM) Sequence: "That sounds interesting."
  659. (1:40:31 AM) Soulless: "We should go look for it in case it causes more trouble. Heart, let us know if you find anything? I'm assuming you can tell Brain to say hi."
  660. (1:43:13 AM) Sequence: Eva gives Heart a quick hug before traipsing back downstairs.
