  1. <•UltimixRed> The intercom opens up, blaring with a pleasant voice <Will the following students please report to the roof of the administration building. Conrad Ory, Athene, Madeline Madocs, and Gungnir.>
  2. 6:41 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn straps on his first-aid kid, tightens his watch, and strightens his shemagh. He's ready to roll! It never takes long, so he smables up to the roof with a goofy grin on his face, humming off-key to himself.
  3. 6:44 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime * Madeline is there right as Conn arrives, which is weird because nobody saw her on the way and she wasn't /waiting/ up there with everyone. Weird! The short slender girl in the too-big Sanctum hoodie smiles nervously up at Conn. "Hi!"
  4. 6:44 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Great, a chance to test out his new armor. Gungnir straps on his articulated plate mail inscribed with runes, pinning that everpresent white flower to his shirt under the armor. He makes sure to fill the runes across his metal form with power, all 5 that he could at once. Then, when he has all the rest of his gear together he heads to the roof.
  5. 6:44 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "Hiii- oh wow that's .. big armour."
  6. 6:46 PM A<Antichthon> ... Hmn. Something weird in how the announcer pronounced "Maddox." Eh, maybe it was just Athene. Also, it was unusual to be called out directly. Maybe this was related to a mission she'd already been on? Athene put on her mission outfit - Jean skirt, flashy belt, fingerless gloves, AR glasses and fur-lined jacket only kept from being permanently ruined a dozen times over by the grace
  7. 6:46 PM of magic. Also the snakepack that contained her axes, among other things. She was the last to arrive on the roof of the Administration building, having to really tug her four tons of snakeflesh to get through the door. She gave her assembled friends a smile each. The floor creaked. "Odd place to meet for a mission, isn't it?"
  8. 6:46 PM K<Kadmus> purple "Madleine! Bonjour, mon amie!" Conn says, giving her a wave and offering a hug. "And Gungnir, good to see you again." He nods to the tall boy, then to Athene. "You too, mademoiselle Athene!"
  9. 6:47 PM U<•UltimixRed> Once they are all on the roof, a person in a lab coat with several clipboards in his arms, juggling various bits and pieces to analyze. "Hello all, I am Dr. Maheswaran. And today you are taking on the branch of an american Anomalous Terrorist cell. We're...not exactly sure if they are dangerous or not. Hence we sent some of Sanctum's best." His voice is
  10. 6:47 PM crisp and clear, like a fall day.  
  11. 6:47 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gungnir blinks at Madeline before slowly nodding. "It is." He responds. He then waves to the other two whom he already knows.
  12. 6:48 PM A<Antichthon> ... "Hey." Athene grinned, gave Conrad a little friendly punch on the shoulder. Also for the record, Athene had inscribed 5 magic weapon runes and 5 Athene's Warmth runes.
  13. 6:48 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn's confused at being considered one of Sanctum's best, but he supposes he did help beat a Firewatch member!
  14. 6:49 PM A<Antichthon> ... She raised a brow. "Anomalous Terrorists?" She looked over her friends. "Isn't this a little out of our pay grade?"
  15. 6:51 PM U<•UltimixRed> The doctor presses their glasses to their face. "Certainly not, for one we watched  the footage of you fighting Kindle. Though I'll be honest, it is mostly because we aren't actually sure if they truly ARE dangerous. You are a scouting party so to speak."
  16. 6:51 PM A<Antichthon> ... Okay, 4 magic weapon runes, 1 Athene's Warmth.
  17. 6:52 PM The Kindle fight. Athene's expression was opaque on the subject. She retrieved her AR glasses, slid the cool, icy-blue wrap-around lenses into place. "Guess I finally get in on the ARO stuff."
  18. 6:53 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime * Madeline hugs Conn and peeks up at the others with a big smile, then over to the Doctor. She looks confused. "Kiiiindle..?"
  19. 6:53 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun nods slowly. "Are we being sent in for combat, monitoring, or something else?" He asks, trying to get back to the mission.
  20. 6:54 PM K<Kadmus> purple "They were a, ah..." Conn looks to Gungnir for support. "Ibex child? They're a Firewatch member, and we fought them as training, tu sais?" He nods. "And weh, what exactly do you want us to do?"
  21. 6:54 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "... Oh. Oh. Um. Neat."
  22. 6:54 PM U<•UltimixRed> "Irrelevant for now. But the group is called the Eye of Infinity, currently they have several branches out in American soil. We are going to send you in to ascertain their threat level for now. Though be warned, it is America so try not to use your powers too openly. Now...the reason we are very reluctant about considering them a threat."
  23. 6:55 PM A<Antichthon> ... "Not so neat," Athene said, under her breath.
  24. 6:55 PM U<•UltimixRed> The Doctor hands out the clipboards to any smartbrain that feels like looking at them
  25. 6:55 PM K<Kadmus> purple (Academics?)
  26. 6:55 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "Oh! The Eye of Infinity! I remember them! They're kind of .. strange.." Madeline takes one clipboard with her lil' hands and peers at it!
  27. 6:56 PM A<Antichthon> ... Try not to use your powers too openly. A glance at her snakebody.
  28. 6:56 PM U<•UltimixRed> Roll investigation for figuring out what info is relevant. Cooking at +2. (not kidding0

  36. 6:58 PM U<•UltimixRed> Conn is looking over the relevant info. A lot of it is smart person gobbledygook and is therefore looked over. What is relevant is that the Eye of Infinity is buying bread, lettuce, cheese, and pigs in bulk.
  37. 6:58 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun also glances over at Athene at the whole
  38. 6:58 PM 'not openly' thing.
  39. 6:59 PM U<•UltimixRed> Mads is a fair bit more successful, there are several chemicals that one could assume are used for genetic tampering, lots of various cooking materials, and high end goods that would presumably be capable of magical tinkering. "As you can see...it's frankly an absurd situation. We believe they may be attempting to create a so called, perfect sandwich."
  40. 7:00 PM K<Kadmus> purple "But the BLT already exists," Conn says, looking confused.
  41. 7:00 PM A<Antichthon> ... Athene raised her brow even higher. "Uh huh."
  42. 7:01 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "... thooose are.. geneticist's stuff and.. magical stuff and... thaaaat'd be a crazy sandwich.."
  43. 7:01 PM U<•UltimixRed> Dr. Maheswaran looks just as confused as you all. "Now do any of you have questions? We will be bringing you there by portal, as being quiet while going into American territories is of the utmost essence. This base is at the heart of Indianapolis."
  44. 7:02 PM K<Kadmus> purple "What exactly do you want us to /do/, monsieur?" Conn asks, still a little perplexed.
  45. 7:03 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... "Why are we bothering?" Gungnir asks, all he knows so far is that these people apparently want to make a magic sandwich.
  46. 7:03 PM U<•UltimixRed> "Like I said, the WATC wants to know if they are in fact a threat. We figured we would be better safe than sorry."
  47. 7:04 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "I guess.. Um. Right. Right! Scouting! I'm good at scouting!" Madeline beams.
  48. 7:04 PM A<Antichthon> ... Athene looked at her friends. Shrugged. "Maybe they'll share."
  49. 7:04 PM K<Kadmus> purple "Per'aps I can pick up some new recipes!" Conn says, finally looking content with the situation.
  50. 7:05 PM U<•UltimixRed> > Any more questions or are you Ready to go?
  51. 7:05 PM K<Kadmus> purple > Ready.
  52. 7:05 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... "Let us begin then." Gun says with a shrug. And he'd been hoping to test out his armor too.
  53. 7:05 PM > Ready.
  54. 7:05 PM A<Antichthon> ... > Ready
  55. 7:06 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime > Ready.
  56. 7:07 PM U<•UltimixRed> Dr.Maheswaran nods, pressing a hand to their blutooth "Yep, they're ready. You have the coordinates right?" He moves aside, revealing a table with 4 School Issued Kinetic Barriers, and walkie talkies. "Those comm devices will let you call us to bring you back when you're done. Find out as much as you can please." A green portal opens up in front of the
  57. 7:07 PM group, next to the table of equipment
  58. 7:08 PM A<Antichthon> ... Athene passed on the kinetic barrier, tapping the DV-E Barrier strapped to her shoulder. Athene slithered forward, first through the portal.
  59. 7:09 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline reaches over to take a barrier device, strapping it on her wrist with communicator, and totters on after Athene!
  60. 7:12 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun passes on the barrier as well, activating his own and stepping through the portal after Athene. On the other side he says to the students. "I have runes that will allow the four of us to communicate telepathically. I believe that will be useful on a recon mission like this one." He then passes out a small sheet of paper with a silver rune on it to everyone.
  61. 7:13 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "Oh! Really? Neat!"
  62. 7:13 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn nabs a barrier and fumbles it on, clips a walkie-talkie to his belt, and follows the rest of the team through. He gives the Doctor a cheerful wave as he departs. He takes the rune from Gun, and smiles. "Sounds bien, mon ami!"
  63. 7:13 PM U<•UltimixRed> The portal drops the group out into the Indianapolis country side. All around them are fields of grass...and corn. Lots and lots of corn. To their front is a gleaming white, science looking building about 1000~ meters away. To their other sides are a couple red barnhouses, and silos filled with what is presumably, more corn. Perception check.

  66. 7:13 PM A<Antichthon> ... She took a rune, this was an old hat at this. "If anyone asks, I'm one of those chinese dragons they have in parades, we just forgot the head." Joking smile. She apparently wasn't taking this "Perfect Sandwich" mission very seriously.

  74. 7:16 PM U<•UltimixRed> (Your characters can see what those with lower checks got) Conn is able to see that on top of the science building, there are what looks to be some strange gray structures. Gungnir is aware that there are plenty of black shapes patrolling around the area the building occupies. Could very easily be guards. Now Mads is certainly sure that there are several
  75. 7:16 PM people with weapons patrolling the area. Athene would feel a bit frightened in that, what looks to be anti-aircraft guns line the top of the building.
  76. 7:18 PM A<Antichthon> ... "These guys are planning to be hit by a serious attack," Athene said, joking demeanor evaporating. She made sure her snakey body was well-hidden in the corn.
  77. 7:19 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "Oh- oh oh there's.. There's soldiers! Lots of them, patrolling! They're um, well-armed!"
  78. 7:19 PM A<Antichthon> ... She pointed out the anti-aircraft guns. "They must be expecting flyers."
  79. 7:20 PM K<Kadmus> purple "Ah," Conn says, peering at the structure. "It's a building, weh."
  80. 7:20 PM U<•UltimixRed> A large smokestack at the back of building is also billowing out some black acrid smoke.
  81. 7:20 PM A<Antichthon> ... "Okay," Athene said, hunkering down in the corn once she'd had a good look, gesturing for the others to do the same. "First thing's first, let's get some recon. Mads?"
  82. 7:21 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... ~Telepathic everyone.~ Gun thinks to the others that now have his runes. ~If there are armed guards, we shouldn't be speaking out loud.~
  83. 7:21 PM U<•UltimixRed> You are 1000 yards away, if anyone can hear you from there...probably too late.
  84. 7:21 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "Okay.." Madeline settles in with Athene, and she promptly tries to bend her perspective around to look around- first the building proper, then the silos.
  85. 7:21 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn blinks at that, and then tries himself. ~Like so?~ He thinks, and joins the others in the corn. ~Fascinating.~
  86. 7:22 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime r 8 Dream Logic, bending perspective..
  87. 7:22 PM M<Mjeowlnir> Dicebot -- bestest dicebot everer Rolling 8 D6 against 5 for Nemi: [ 6 5 5 2 2 2 2 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 3 ]
  88. 7:22 PM U<•UltimixRed> (Roll power)
  89. 7:22 PM A<Antichthon> ... [Yes,] Athene affirmed Conn. [Like so. ...wait.] A tilt of her head. ~Sorry. Was using the wrong telepathy.~
  90. 7:25 PM U<•UltimixRed> The building itself has numerous doors guarded by what looks to be security panels. As for the silo, there are several more guarded entrances. What looks to be about 6 or 7 guards. Now...you do catch a whiff of something. Roll me willpower.
  91. 7:25 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime r 11
  92. 7:25 PM M<Mjeowlnir> Dicebot -- bestest dicebot everer Rolling 11 D6 against 5 for Nemi: [ 6 6 5 5 5 4 4 3 3 2 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 5 ]
  93. 7:26 PM U<•UltimixRed> Madocs, from the Silo smells what is possibly, the BEST meat they would ever encounter in their goddamn life. smoked pork to utter perfection. Thankfully they quickly snap out of it. Roll me either Firearms, or Perception at -3
  94. 7:28 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ".. oooohmygosh that smells .. wow."
  95. 7:28 PM r 8 Perc -3

  97. 7:28 PM A<Antichthon> ... Smell? Athene tongue flicked, tasting the air.
  98. 7:30 PM U<•UltimixRed> Two VERY important things to note what Mads sees. The first is that the guards milling about the property, several of which you hear conversing. "Goddamn, we are not being paid enough for this shit. And for fuck's sake, if I eat one more ear of corn." Another one, commenting with extreme bitterness "Wait...Sam. You're being paid?! They just say I get
  99. 7:30 PM dental!"  the guards all have their hands on the triggers of their Ak-47's. First rule of gun training is that you DON'T do that.
  100. 7:31 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ".. theeese guys are.. not professionals. They're um- no trigger discipline, they're.. not.. yeah. Not professionals. They don't really wanna be here."
  101. 7:31 PM U<•UltimixRed> The second important thing, are the strange gray protrusions from the top of the building do not look like any Anti-air gun you've ever seen or heard of. Though it's still vaguely gun shaped, so you're not out of the clear. Athene will taste the faint hint of smoke....and delicious delicious ham.
  102. 7:32 PM Mokou-cat → Mokou-work
  103. 7:32 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ".. aaand.. I don't think those things are anti-aircraft guns. Um. I think they're smokers."
  104. 7:33 PM U<•UltimixRed> Note of clarification, they are not spewing smoke. They just seem to be on top of the buildings for whatever reasons.
  105. 7:33 PM K<Kadmus> purple Even Conn has better trigger discipline than that, and he's at no risk of blowing off his own feet! ~Are they antennae, per'aps? Mind control?~ He suggests.
  106. 7:33 PM U<•UltimixRed> The giant silo acts as a smoking outlet from what you all can guess
  107. 7:35 PM A<Antichthon> ... That ham...Athene swallowed her sudden influx of saliva. Took her a moment to break out of that trance. ~Uh. Right, right. Not professionals. Good news for us.~ It was really hard to think through that ham smell. ~We've learned what we can from out here. lets close to a hundred meters. Stick to the corn when you can.~ She started forward. ~Think these guys are green enough to be
  108. 7:35 PM scared off?~
  109. 7:36 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ".. just.. weird. I dunno. It- I mean, the silo's a giant smoker area thing.. Um." Madeline nods, slowly. She's /hungry/ now.. "I think so? Maybe?"
  110. 7:36 PM U<•UltimixRed> Stealth is certainly possible. The tall grass provides adequate foliage around, with the corn the icing on the cake. +2 to stealth attempts.
  111. 7:36 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline shall creep on ahead. So hongry!

  117. 7:39 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn is not Captain Sneak. He's not even Private Sneak. He is, in fact, permanently barred from the Sneak Army, and has received a lifetime-award for 'Least Sneaky Guy'. What I'm saying is, he cannot sneak for shit. Conn stays put. ~Call if you need help, weh. I would just hinder you at this point.~
  118. 7:40 PM A<Antichthon> ... ~And have you run a full kilometer if we need help? No, Conn. Stick with us.~
  119. 7:40 PM ~Once we get to a hundred meters, I'll send Mads in for a closer look.~
  120. 7:40 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn nods his agreement, and follows Athene. Maybe the snake-lady will cover his clumsy ineptness?

  156. 7:51 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime * Madeline, acting reflexively, is.. Not going to cause violence to people! Instead, she'll try an ambitious working of dream logic, to emulate something from nightmares.. So that the men's calls for help, their gunshots, go unheard.

Now, Athene is experienced in fighting, and she could probably tell that although what the guards are wearing LOOK like bulletproof vests, they're about as protective as a bunch of kleenexes padded together

  245. 8:24 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ~.. fake armor?~
  246. 8:25 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~This seems excessive,~ Conn thinks. ~I hope they are not too badly injured.~ He looks down, and raises an eyebrow. ~Apparently I was shot. Fake armour? That seems... stupide?~
  247. 8:26 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene hadn't stopped moving. She was going as fast as Conn could keep up, towards the structure. When Mads said they hadn't gotten a sound out, howver, she hunkered down. ~Mads, does that include blocking their walkie talkies?~
  248. 8:26 PM U<•UltimixRed> The compound still seems rather silent after the whole ordeal, though the area around it is clear enough to have that civilized quality to it. The 'guards' are all passed out among the corn and tall grass
  249. 8:26 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ~It should.. I think..~ Madeline creeps ever forward toward the larger structure.
  250. 8:26 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun follows, confused by the whole situation.
  251. 8:27 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn trails behind, the bullet wounds sealing up as he moves.
  252. 8:27 PM A<•Antichthon> ... In private telepathy to Mads, ~Please wait for orders next time before going off like that.~ She was suppressing her Echidnean anger, but enough would seep through.
  253. 8:28 PM U<•UltimixRed> The structure was now only 50 yards away, with one main entrance, and a couple smaller entrances to the side, and one that Mads had saw on the side of the smoke stack, which is quite enticing to Athene right at this moment. Roll me Willpower Athene
  254. 8:29 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... (the runes don't allow for private telepathy they link everyone in the group)
  255. 8:29 PM A<•Antichthon> ... ~Okay, we're going to do it this way. Mads, you're taking point.~ Mads alaready was taking point. ~Try to guide the rest of us down a path we won't be detected.~
  256. 8:29 PM (Athene used her own telepathy for privacy, then.)
  257. 8:30 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ~.. okay okay I'm sorry I'm sorry.. okay, um. Okay.~ Madeline continues creeping ahead, and she'll periodically bend her perspective to take looks around here and there just to confirm her corners are clear. She's looking for entrances that seem relatively low-security and would have clearance for Athene.
  258. 8:30 PM A<•Antichthon> ... No sooner did Athene get out those words then the smell overtook her. It wasn't just a willpower check. It was a willpower check against her Echidnean instincts.

  262. 8:31 PM The corners are clear, and the doors are locked with some sort of panel that doesn't have any numbers on it. Just a button with a speaker icon, and scanner for...something
  263. 8:32 PM There is no presence outside the place, and not even the 'guns' on top react. Eerily quiet
  264. 8:32 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Mission, then ham. Mission, the ham. Mads on point, trying to keep the rest of them from being detected. Athene, Conn and Gun, a cluster well behind.

  274. 8:34 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn and Mads are a good team.
  275. 8:35 PM U<•UltimixRed> Gungnir is able to find that doors are in fact a function of the building. Locked of course, and with no apparent handles. As for Mads and Athene, with Conn's help they locate several maintenance hatches, around 3-4 meters above from ground level at the backside of the compound. One could also presumably scale up to the smokestack as an entrance in.
  276. 8:36 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn makes use of his sturdy frame to provide a stepladder for Mads so she can investigate the hatches.
  277. 8:36 PM A<•Antichthon> ... No, the smokestack was out. They'd be spotted by someone for sure. Athene approached the hatches, waved for the others to follow.
  278. 8:37 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "Um- I see maintenance hatches, I could easily get in there.. Thaaank you Conn!"

  283. 8:38 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline attempts to wriggle her way up to the hatches.. Though she peeks at Athene, who'd probably be better able to open them.
  284. 8:38 PM A<•Antichthon> ... ~Hmm,~ Athene mental-hummed, regarding the hatches. ~Any dream tools you can use to open them for the rest of us, Mads?~ Or at least Conn and Gungnir. They might not be big enough for Athene.
  285. 8:38 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline's used to doing her operations solo. "Um- usually I don't bother /opening/ things if I don't need to, but.."
  286. 8:39 PM U<•UltimixRed> Now, the maintenance hatches could easily be pried off, with a beefy enough bod. The main problem here is Conn isn't exactly sure the average airduct is able to support the weight of a full human being. Almost like those rude jerks don't expect company this way
  287. 8:40 PM A<•Antichthon> ... ~Wait.~ Athene looked at Gungnir. ~I think this is more your area.~ She smiled, gestured for Gungnir to do the honors.
  288. 8:40 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~These ducts, they will not support most of us. Madeline, per'aps, but certainly not the rest of us.~ He thinks, peering up. ~Not that it really matters, tu sais, once we're inside we're inside.~
  289. 8:41 PM A<•Antichthon> ... ~We'll just puncture the air duct if the room below is empty.~
  290. 8:41 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~My thoughts exactly, mademoiselle Athene.~
  291. 8:41 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ~Okay..~ Madeline peeks at Gungnir.
  292. 8:41 PM A<•Antichthon> ... ~Gungnir will get the hatches off. He has a way with metal.~ She hadn't forgotten how he'd broken her incredible axe. It was made by //Andrey// and Gungnir had broken it.
  293. 8:41 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun shrugs and steps up to pull the hatch off of its moorings.

  303. 8:44 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn offers a boost.
  304. 8:44 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "Okay!" Madeline climbs up on Conn's shoulders and wriggles up into the duct afore wandering closer!
  305. 8:45 PM U<•UltimixRed> Madeline, please give me either a Movement roll or a Reflexes (not dodge) - 4 roll
  306. 8:45 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun stands and watches for now. He had worn platemail to a stealth mission it seems.

  309. 8:49 PM U<•UltimixRed> Madeline makes it a couple of meters in, before the metal beneath her gives way and collapses. Good news, she's agile enough to sand without taking any damage. Bad news is they are in a strange room with lots of pipes, valves, boilers after making a fuckton of noise. But, hey, the fall of 4-5 meters did nothing to dent your HP.
  310. 8:49 PM Conn can probably tell that air ducts are not rated to support 115 pound girls + Equipment.
  311. 8:50 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~Ca va, Madeline?~ Conn thinks.
  312. 8:50 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Creak, BANG! clatter, clatter. Athene rubbed her temples.
  313. 8:51 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ~Oooof! I'm okay! I'm okay!~ Madeline quickly ganders around to try and find her exits and if anything else is in the room.
  314. 8:52 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun looks at Athene, then at Conn, then back at the vent. He then tries to widen the opening of the vent enough for Athene with his metal shaping and starts to crawl through the vent, widening it for Athene as he goes.
  315. 8:52 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn will offer Gun a steady set of shoulders to stand on so he can work.
  316. 8:52 PM U<•UltimixRed> Roll either Academics or Investigation Madeline. +2 if they are familiar with spatial stuff.
  317. 8:52 PM A<•Antichthon> ... ~Are we clear to follow?~ For that matter, could Athene follow? She could fit a hole thirty inches or more across.

As for literally everything else, they are in the center of various clear tubes going into the side of the wall Mads was just walking from, is behind a glass case, a single head of lettuce.
  325. 8:55 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ~They're.. trying to- infuse a head of lettuce with something? It's weird... I think they're trying to make the best lettuce."

  328. 8:56 PM U<•UltimixRed> All the various Rube Goldberg style boilers and distillers were all funneling into the base of that head of lettuce, which had 2 sticky notes attached to the side of the viewing window. <Whoever has been stealing this to fuel their rose garden, cut that shit out or it’s coming out of your paycheck.> The one under that is <Fuck you Sarah, it’s art.>
  329. 8:56 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline will scurry over to a point that has cover and lets her keep a careful eye on the door, if there is one, to this strange room. ~And um, more signs of.. disunity in the ranks.~
  330. 8:56 PM U<•UltimixRed> Gungnir will feel a slight jolt as the metal resists his attempts at breaking it. Take 1 Psyche damage, for some reason it is actively resisting being manipulated....
  331. 8:57 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~They do not seem very professional so far,~ thinks Conn.
  332. 8:57 PM U<•UltimixRed> On the other side of the perfect lettuce is a door...once again locked with a panel to the side.
  333. 8:58 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Metal door?
  334. 8:58 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun looks extremely surprised and takes a step back, staring at the metal with a frown. ~The building resists being manipulated... Actively. It seems to have attacked my mind in some way.~
  335. 8:59 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~S'il vous plais, do not tell me the building is alive. That would be problematic.~
  336. 8:59 PM U<•UltimixRed> The door is metallic looking, but you can't be sure.  
  337. 9:00 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Well, that was unexpected. Worse, if they couldn't widen the hole, that meant separation. ~...Conn, Gun, follow Mads. Conn, you're in charge of the three of you. We might be able to talk but I can't make decisions wen I'm not even there.~ Athene looked up, at the smokestack. ~I'll find another way in.~
  338. 9:00 PM U<•UltimixRed> The opening is now at least, wide enough for Athene to pass through, though it'll scrape her sides a good bit. But we can't all have what we want
  339. 9:00 PM (Man, timing huh?)
  340. 9:00 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline peeks back to the vent that she crashed through. ~.. Okay. I understand. Um. I can probably figure out how to open that door too.~
  341. 9:02 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gungnir nods, ~As you say. Though I believe it would be best if we split evenly rather than leaving one of our number alone. Buddy system.~
  342. 9:04 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene pressed her lips together. ~Normally I'd agree with you, but There's no two of you I'd risk being alone. Besides, the way I'm going in, I'd rather do alone.~ She pointed at the smokestack. ~Now get in there.~
  343. 9:05 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn shrugs. ~Bonne chance. We will see you in a moment.~ He stands under the vent and cups his hands, so he can boost Gun up into the room.
  344. 9:06 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline peeks at the others and.. Well. She'll see if she can't dream logic her way through the door problem- some convenient montage playback of the last time someone accessed the door, maybe, so she can read their code? Maybe? It's a gamble and she's not even sure her powers might let her do that.

  348. 9:08 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun shakes his head at Conn. ~You first Conn. I am tall enough to reach it on my own.~ He then goes to boost Conn up.
  349. 9:08 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Okay, they weren't going to waste time arguing about this. Athene got her tail under Conn and hefted him into the shaft.
  350. 9:08 PM After which she'd asssist Gungnir.
  351. 9:09 PM U<•UltimixRed> The material of the room seems to resist at Madeline's attempt at using their powers on it, but without too much more trouble, they can see the various guards that came in and out. The guards always seemed to use the little speaker button, while people in labcoats pressed an ID card onto the panel.
  352. 9:09 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn takes the boost, unfeeling fingers scrabbling at the rim of the hatch until he manages to haul himself up and through. He tumbles out of the hole Mads made, crashing to the floor face-first. He holds out one hand, thumb raised, from the prone position. ~C'est bien.~

  356. 9:10 PM U<•UltimixRed> No damage, except to your dignity but that's not a big issue.
  357. 9:10 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn never takes dignity damage. Can't injure what isn't there!
  358. 9:10 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun shrugs as Conn is lifted, going to climb up on his own, but apparently being lifted by snaketail. He then crawls through, and falls down the hole after Conn, with a very loud, metallic clang. You know. From all of the metal armor that's being worn by the metal man falling to the ground.
  359. 9:10 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madelin will.. Try and recreate one of the ID cards she saw in her dream!

  366. 9:11 PM A<•Antichthon> ... [Keep them safe, Conn.] Private thought speak.
  367. 9:12 PM U<•UltimixRed> Gungnir could shrug off some heavy blows, but gravity alongwith the heavy plate mail leaves him feeling like he took a punch to the gut. 2 Damage.
  368. 9:12 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Then, like a snake climbing a tree, Athene wormed up to the smokestack.
  369. 9:12 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... (can I roll damage resistance?)
  370. 9:12 PM U<•UltimixRed> (No, sorry)
  371. 9:12 PM K<Kadmus> purple [I will do my best, mon amie,] Conn replies, and pushes himself off the floor. He suts himself off, and offers Gun a hand up.
  372. 9:13 PM *dusts, even
  373. 9:13 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun grunts and stands on his own, not noticing the offered hand until he's already standing.
  374. 9:13 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Actually Athene hadn't gotten to the point she could read minds, so Conn's response would fall on deaf ears. But surely Athene knew Conn well enough to know that's what he'd say.
  375. 9:13 PM U<•UltimixRed> Madeline is about to recreate one of the security cards, though pressing it to the panel just receives an error sign. <Subject Deceased> is what the little black digital display says.
  376. 9:14 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ".. um. Subject.. Deceased?" Madeline looks to the others, big-eyed.

  380. 9:15 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~...oh, non. Non, I would not like for us to be dealing with a zombie workforce.~ Conn thinks, frowning. ~And weh. On three?~
  381. 9:15 PM U<•UltimixRed> Athene struggles a lot to get up to the smoke stack, mostly since it didn't seemed it want to be climbed for some reason. Do they have anything that could be used to make footholds? If so, explain that add +2 to your roll
  382. 9:15 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ~Er. Go ahead.~ Madeline.. pauses a moment, and presses the comm button first. What a nerd.
  383. 9:15 PM → •Silvors (opped) joined  
  384. 9:16 PM U<•UltimixRed> When Madeline presses the comm button, speakers roar to life, a very tired and gruff voice says "Goddamn it Tanya, did you get locked into the Lettuce room again!?"
  385. 9:16 PM Oh by the way, does anyone in the Lettuce room have alchemy or occultic knowledge?
  386. 9:16 PM if so, please roll them.
  387. 9:16 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gungnir goes to offer a well placed kick to the door, making an assist roll for Conn's kick. He pauses as he hears the voice, just short of kicking.
  388. 9:17 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Footholds? No. No feet, for that matter. But with her length she could wrap all the way around the smokestack, squeezing it, and that was a very, very effective strategy.
  389. 9:17 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn does not! He pauses mid-way through the wind up for the kick, and looks meaningfully at Madeline. ~Say yes.~
  390. 9:17 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline tries again to dream logic her way out of trouble- maybe by /chance/ she'd sound just like Tanya? "Yeah, sorry.. Can you unlock the door?"

  393. 9:18 PM U<•UltimixRed> It's a very thick smokestack so it's definitely not easy, but Athene manages to make her way up to the top, with black billowing deliciousness coming from the now available entrance into the compound.
  394. 9:19 PM The gruff voice on the other end seems to take a second to register what's going on. "Wait a second....didn't you die last week? Yeah! I remember, you went out like a scrub to the Spectral hogs!" (You can roll Persuasion to try and lie

  402. 9:21 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene swallowed. Swallowed again. Resisted the urge to flick her tongue with all her strength. Swallowed again. Do you have any idea how much saliva she produced when she was hungry? It'd be a damn waterfall if she wasn't swallowing every few seconds. ~Reached the top,~ She broadcast to the other three. ~It smells... ... ...going in.~ Athene slipped down the smokestack.
  403. 9:22 PM U<•UltimixRed> (Hold up Athene, I'll get back to ya!)
  404. 9:22 PM The voice on the intercom pauses "Uhh yeah...the system's acting up. I'll send in Jerry to open up the door for your kay? Give him like 5 minutes."
  405. 9:22 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun was unaware that 'going in' was a smell, but alright.
  406. 9:23 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "Okay, cool, thanks."
  407. 9:23 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~That was great, Madeline! I think they really believed it!~ Conn thinks, looking happy.
  408. 9:24 PM U<•UltimixRed> Back to Athene, who is having trouble with two things. One, resisting what is probably going to be the most fond food memory they could ever have, and two the fact that there is barely any way to safely descend. Roll Willpower at -3!

  412. 9:29 PM U<•UltimixRed> A premade message booms over the speakers with a jaunty, upbeat tune behind it. even Athene can somewhat make it out. a pleasant female voice says "Here at the Eye of Infinity, remember that we value our cannon fodder. Happiness is mandatory, otherwise you will be cleansed before the new world order. Now please enjoy a minute of soothing jazz." Careless
  413. 9:29 PM Whisper plays.
  414. 9:30 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun raises an eyebrow, now he wanted to kick down the door again.
  415. 9:30 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~I know jazz. That is not jazz.~
  416. 9:31 PM U<•UltimixRed> Athene, there's just no ifs, ands, or buts, you just NEED that meat in your mouth. Whatever it takes to savor the porcine gift from the divines themself must be acquired. A porking for Athene is very much in order, and with your haste, you slip and fall into the smoke stack.

  417. 9:33 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Mouth? Fuck the mouth, fuck the mission, fuck her friends, Athene needed to fill her stomach! Also, enough euphemisms there? ...Actually, for an Echidean, associating food and sex was way too apt.

  420. 9:34 PM U<•UltimixRed> It's a pretty long fall, but she can muscle through it. Take 4 damage. though the big problem is she's currently in a cloud of smoke, and oxygen is very much not in her cards right now, let's cut back to the other group shall we?
  421. 9:35 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~We should hide on either side of the door so we can leave when they open it.~ Conn thinks.
  422. 9:35 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline takes the brief wait by peeking around the LETTUCE CHAMBER again.
  423. 9:35 PM ~Oh, I don't need to really, but- good idea.~
  424. 9:36 PM U<•UltimixRed> As the group enjoys a pleasant accompaniment of smooth jazz, they hear a rumble of heavy footsteps at the door.  Roll me perceptions or a weapons skill

  432. 9:38 PM U<•UltimixRed> Madeline should be very pleased, as the prepping of guns doesn't sound much like Ak-47's. Instead it's more plasticky and is reminiscent of  at least 5 carbines. Maybe a M1911 or two in there. Fun!

His regeneration would keep him alive within her, a neverending meal. She'd never told anyone other than her therapist about it, of course, but she'd thought about it every hour of every day since she'd met him. Now, it was loose.

  553. 10:23 PM U<•UltimixRed> They are breathing, not very well, but they are. though unless Gungnir feels like actually knocking them out, they'll be awake in a little bit.
  554. 10:24 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline wiggles to standing, yawns, and wanders over to Gungnir. She yawns again and rummages in her big ol pocket.
  555. 10:25 PM And she'll try to produce some ZIP-TIES. Which she actually carries and doesn't need to just manufacture from the dream. Smart!
  556. 10:25 PM She'll hand them to Gungnir and yawn again.
  557. 10:25 PM ... Madeline pauses and withdraws a huge mug of coffee from nowhere, taking a loooong drink of it.
  558. 10:25 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~They seem like they will survive,~ Conn thinks. ~And a very good job, Madeline. You saved us a fight, there. Are you alright?~
  559. 10:26 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun nods and uses the zip ties to tie all the EOI peoples hands behind their backs and then zip ties their zip tied hands to something on the walls.
  560. 10:26 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "I'm just sleepy!"
  561. 10:27 PM And then she produces a burrito from nowhere and starts munching on that. It's a breakfast burrito, with eggs, cheese and sausage crumbles!
  562. 10:27 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~Gungnir? Do you require andy healing?~
  563. 10:27 PM *or any healing
  564. 10:27 PM *Andy healing is something entirely different.
  565. 10:32 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... ~I have been injured, but it is only minor bruising.~ Gun replies. ~The fall hurt more than anything they did.~
  566. 10:34 PM U<•UltimixRed> Over at Athene's predicament she is rapidly losing all semblance of sanity to the hunger and oxygen deprivation. Her sense of smell and sight are both kaput from overload. Ain't this just the worst?
  567. 10:35 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Yes, just the worst. So very worst.
  568. 10:36 PM So Worst she was trying to break through the wall of the smokestack itself, if such a thing is allowed.

  581. 10:45 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene wasn't thinking very clearly. At the moment, brute force was the answer to all her problems.

  587. 10:48 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene was no longer swallowing her saliva. She'd drooled a literal gallon of it in the last half minute. The Ham belonged to her. It was her property, as was everything on this planet. Everything! But especially the Ham!

  590. 10:50 PM U<•UltimixRed> Athene in their wild thrashing has managed to further inside the building and out of the smoke. There are other things in the room, but all you can see are a tub of sliced ham. The rejects from the experiment, but each molecule worth more than it's weight in antimatter!

But you have blanked out for a good long time since you are currently not in the room you had all that....perfect...glorious...magnificient...ham. Right! The mission. Right now you feel disgusting because you are in a pool of mud in a pig pen...lost. Also there are weird 4 tusk pig corpses surrounding you,
  597. 10:56 PM missing most of their flesh.
  598. 11:01 PM On the other side of the map, an announcement is being broadcasted to the entire complex, with the same pleasant voice "Attention all EOI employees, this is an emergency code 203. An angry snake lady has broken into the smoke stack and eating their way through everything. Remember, if you die, you may have bought your teammate a couple seconds. Feel proud!"
  599. 11:01 PM a jaunty pop tune proceeds the message
  600. 11:01 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene cried out in frustration. Where was the ham? Also, Ewww... Do you know how long it takes to clean fifty feet and four tons of snake? She was going to have to use a half-dozen bottles of body wash after this. Fortunately, she seems to have mostly come around. Her lung felt scorched, even in the fresh - uh, fresher - lets say "probably not as deadly" air. Her tongue flicked
  601. 11:01 PM as she tried to get a sense of where she was and what was around her and most importantly what was the way out?

  607. 11:06 PM The group at the Lettuce room did hear the place shaking to the right of them, the lettuce room exiting to a narrow hallway. Like a t-section
  608. 11:07 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~Athene? Mon amie, are you alright?~ Conn thinks, worried. ~You 'ave not been making much sense.~
  609. 11:08 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun looks to the others at the combination of that telepathic garble of... unkind thoughts from Athene, and then the speakers saying that message. ~We should head in the direction of the shaking.~
  610. 11:08 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~Also, please do not do... whatever it is you were thinking about me. It sounded unpleasant.~
  611. 11:09 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Oh, her scales. Her clothes. Her hair! She'd lost her hair tie at some point, and now her hair wa wild and rabid and full of mud. She looked a horrible, ugly mess. That, on top of losing her control... She was alone , and still she blushed furiously. Her friends wer down to the left, probably. She couldn't face them. She couldn't. Head in the direction of the shaking, they said.
  612. 11:09 PM ~NO!~ Athene cried. ~...No. Except for Mads. Conn, Gun. Stay...stay put for now.~
  613. 11:09 PM Athene left the mud room behinde her and slithered into the T-intersection, hugging the wall to make sure she couldn't be glimpsed by anyone in the Lettuce room.
  614. 11:10 PM U<•UltimixRed> It's a long winding path, but your scent leads the way. Lots of turns and twists.
  615. 11:10 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ~Okay..~ Madeline scurries on out from the LETTUCE ROOM and starts hurriedly on toward the shaking room!
  616. 11:10 PM A<•Antichthon> ... ~Mads needs to...I need Mads to deal with something. Just her. Gun, Conn, I'll call you when we're ready.~
  617. 11:11 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn looks up at Gun, and shrugs, deeply confused.
  618. 11:12 PM U<•UltimixRed> To Mads, Athene looks like they bathed in mud and blood recently, fought several pigs for their flesh, smell of soot and ash, and have several scratches from...something
  619. 11:13 PM A<•Antichthon> ... They'd meet in the hall. Athene, covered head to tail in dark, smelly mud. The stench was horrible. Things had been //rotting// in that mud. Athene looked like a pig herself, or at least that's how she imagined she looked. Even reality was far from flattering. She could pass for a cavesnakewoman, if cavemen weren't so renowned for their hygiene. She kept her eyes glued to the
  620. 11:13 PM floor, her entire face red. "Could you clean me up?" Her voice was weak, quivering. "Please?"
  621. 11:14 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline boggles at Athene. ".. you- look like you had a bad time. Um. I'll try!" Madeline attempts to abuse DREAM LOGIC to make a quick MONTAGE SEQUENCE and otherwise make all the efforts of hours of cleaning Athene pass by in about thirty seconds.
  622. 11:14 PM U<•UltimixRed> Roll!
  623. 11:14 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun shrugs at Conn and takes a look at the lettuce. Maybe he'd eat some. He didn't really need to eat, but he enjoyed the taste sometimes. And lettuce was nice. He takes a leaf of lettuce and eats it as they wait.

  636. 11:17 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene coughed, a retched sound. Their lung was heavily damaged. And despite Mads' best efforts, she still looked like shit. Literal shit. She was brown and long. She was a living turd. "Please." She sounded so embarassed, so dejected.
  637. 11:17 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn appears to have lost what little control he had over the situation. ~...how is it?~

  641. 11:17 PM M<Mjeowlnir> Dicebot -- bestest dicebot everer Rolling 10 D6 against 5 for Nemi: [ 5 4 3 3 3 3 2 2 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 1 ]
  642. 11:17 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime OH NO!
  643. 11:18 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn accepts a lettuce leaf and gives it a tentative nibble. May as well!
  644. 11:19 PM U<•UltimixRed> Now,  to Gungnir, the crisp...fresh lettuce. The flavor was a hint of sweetness and oh so refreshing. Like a cool lemonade on a hot day, a popsicle at the beach. You feel like you could fight off an army. Conrad, you feel like your very cells are rejeuvanating, and your skin clear.
  645. 11:20 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Nice. Gun takes a whole head of lettuce for later use back at Sanctum.
  646. 11:20 PM K<Kadmus> purple So... Conn feels like he always does? He finishes the leaf with a shrug. ~Could have used some chili.~
  647. 11:20 PM U<•UltimixRed> Conn feels like he always does...times a hundred
  648. 11:21 PM K<Kadmus> purple That's pretty good!
  649. 11:21 PM U<•UltimixRed> Athene, you don't look much better.
  650. 11:21 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn is happy.
  651. 11:22 PM U<•UltimixRed> It's just the singular head of lettuce btw. Acquired Head of the Best Lettuce in the World!
  652. 11:22 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline cries a little and tries AGAIN, burning psyche to fuel her efforts!
  653. 11:22 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~Do you think Athene and Madeline would like some of the lettuce?~
  654. 11:22 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime r 12 Reaaaaaaarghh!
  655. 11:22 PM M<Mjeowlnir> Dicebot -- bestest dicebot everer Rolling 12 D6 against 5 for Nemi: [ 6 6 5 5 5 4 4 3 2 2 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 5 ]
  656. 11:22 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene drew a ragged breath and held herself tall, fists clenched, blush receding from sheer force of will.
  657. 11:23 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... ~Athene, Madeline, this lettuce is delicious, would either of you like some?~
  658. 11:23 PM U<•UltimixRed> All the grime is cleared off of Athene, though they still looked quite messed up, in the fashionable way in they do it in movies.
  659. 11:24 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "THERE!" Madeline, looking rather tired-out herself after ninety seconds of MAKEOVER MONTAGE, slumps against the wall like a tired little thing. ~.. um. No thanks! We have a job, right?~
  660. 11:25 PM K<Kadmus> purple ~I am still uncertain as to what the job is, tu sais?~ Conn thinks. ~But weh, we should keep exploring this place. You can try the lettuce when we meet up again. Are you ready, Athene?~
  661. 11:25 PM A<•Antichthon> ... ~What - Don't eat the Lettice!~ What the hell were they thinking? Athene's jaw clenched, unclenched. Clenched, unclenched. ~Come meet up with us. Now.~ She sounded sterner than anyone save Mads had ever heard her.
  662. 11:25 PM Lettuce, even. Athene was so bad she was mixing up her vowels.
  663. 11:25 PM mad. Also consonants.
  664. 11:26 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... ~Yes, but I am taking the lettuce back to Sanctum.~ After a pause ~They never told us how to get back to Sanctum from here.~ He then starts to walk back to Athene.
  665. 11:26 PM U<•UltimixRed> (They did. the communicators.)
  666. 11:27 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn follows. He's still pretty confused, but that was good lettuce! He hopes Athene is alright.
  667. 11:27 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... (Ooooh, Gun just thought they were walkie-talkies)
  668. 11:28 PM U<•UltimixRed> (Nope, they work to the school.  and your ticket out.)
  669. 11:28 PM A<•Antichthon> ... "We also aren't done yet," Athene said, vocally, when they met up. She was completely stone-faced. "There's a third hallway in this intersection. Come on." She slithered down the unexplored corridor.
  670. 11:28 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline nods and scurries on after Athene.
  671. 11:29 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn shambles up next to Athene. "You look injured. Do you need aid?" He asks, as he tries to keep up.
  672. 11:29 PM ⇐ •gumbal1 quit (gumbal1@199.30.qhq.t) Quit: ...until it's only me, me alone... in a quiet world. In a world that's nothing like what happened at HELIOS One.
  673. 11:29 PM U<•UltimixRed> The group eventually comes at another t-section. Left or right?
  674. 11:30 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun walks along, following the others. He didn't really understand why Athene was so mad at him for doing nothing during the time in which she had told him to do nothing, but eh.
  675. 11:30 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Left. Athene didn't hold it to a vote, she just went left.
  676. 11:32 PM U<•UltimixRed> Eventually the group get to another room, after passing by several bathrooms and broom closets and normal people things, arrive at a locked door with a plate reading "Mayo Room."
  677. 11:32 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime * Madeline scurries after Athene!
  678. 11:32 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene smashed the door with her three hundred pound tail axe.
  679. 11:32 PM r 18 Fuck stealth.
  680. 11:32 PM U<•UltimixRed> Roll!
  681. 11:32 PM M<Mjeowlnir> Dicebot -- bestest dicebot everer Rolling 18 D6 against 5 for Antichthon: [ 6 6 6 5 5 5 4 4 4 3 3 3 2 2 2 1 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 6 ]
  682. 11:33 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Oh! Goody. Gun was glad they were starting to adopt an approach that he was more comfortable with.
  683. 11:33 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn follows along, looking forlorn and a little disappointed. He's shocked at Athene's sudden 180 in attitude, and he's worried about her. And then she tries to chop a door in half. Athene, why?
  684. 11:33 PM U<•UltimixRed> Why no one searched the downed soldiers for key cards is odd, but doesn't matter, the door smashes way for Athene's rage.
  685. 11:34 PM K<Kadmus> purple To be fair, this /is/ basically exactly how every other mission he's been on has gone. It's still worrying.
  686. 11:35 PM U<•UltimixRed> inside the Mayo room, which is Definitely way larger than it should be, dimension wise are several vats of strange chemicals that all distill into a small jar the the bottom. The door leads to a grated walkway above all the vats, with stairs leading down to the perfect mayo .Mads would realize pretty quickly this is NOT how you make mayo.
  687. 11:35 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ".. thaaaaat.. iiiiis not how you make mayo.."
  688. 11:35 PM U<•UltimixRed> Does anyone have occultic knowledge?
  689. 11:36 PM A<•Antichthon> ... It was maybe fortunate that Athene was a meat-eater and didn't have to worry much about being tempted by most of the other sandwich ingredients.
  690. 11:36 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Not really! Though Mads IS an experienced operative who took out enemy occultists, she doesn't ahve specific occult knowledge. Hmm..
  691. 11:36 PM U<•UltimixRed> Roll knowledge/academics at -2
  692. 11:36 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn knows as much about the occult as he does about the sensation of touch.

  695. 11:37 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene slithered into the room. "Gun, you want to stuff this stuff in your mouth, too?"
  696. 11:37 PM K<Kadmus> purple ...Which is apparently more than you'd think? He has chatted with a demon before. Some things must rub off on you.
  697. 11:37 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime r 8 Knowledge!
  698. 11:37 PM M<Mjeowlnir> Dicebot -- bestest dicebot everer Rolling 8 D6 against 5 for Nemi: [ 5 4 3 3 3 2 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 1 ]
  699. 11:38 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun shrugs, "I do not particularly enjoy Mayonnaise." He says, the implied insult flying right over his head.
  700. 11:38 PM U<•UltimixRed> Conrad actually recognizes some of the components in the vats. Mads doesn't. Magical herbs are in the mix, as well as....the components of dead spirits? That's certainly not normal mayo goodness.
  701. 11:38 PM A<•Antichthon> ... It was for the best. Athene already knew she'd have to apologize to all of them later, but she was too ashamed and angry to care.
  702. 11:39 PM U<•UltimixRed> Does the group go down to the bottom floor?
  703. 11:39 PM A<•Antichthon> ... If its otherwise a dead end, Athene will.
  704. 11:39 PM K<Kadmus> purple "They... appear to be using spirit... remains?" Conn starts, peering up at the vats. "And magical 'erbs. I didn't even now sprits left remains! You learn something new every day, weh?"
  705. 11:40 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "Spirits.. in.. mayonnaise? That's horrible!" Madeline pouts as she follows after Athene!
  706. 11:40 PM K<Kadmus> purple "I do not think it would be a good idea to taste this," he continues. "It seems quite inappropriate."
  707. 11:40 PM He follows them down.
  708. 11:40 PM U<•UltimixRed> Two important things. there is a strange book leftover on one of the pipes, and two, the jar that all the vats distilled into is...empty.
  709. 11:40 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... "Hm, That is... Odd." Gun says, following after Athene as well.
  710. 11:41 PM A<•Antichthon> ... She regarded the jar. "Maybe that means they've already made all the mayo they need."
  711. 11:41 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline attempts to reach through space to grab the book- intel is intel!- before they exit. That there's no actual mayo is.. concerning. Maybe they took it already?
  712. 11:42 PM U<•UltimixRed> Now, Athene and Gungnir would recognize the strange characters on the cover of the book. Magical...certainly
  713. 11:42 PM A<•Antichthon> ... "They're supposedly making the perfect sandwich, not the perfect deli," Athene mused. "They wouldn't need much."
  714. 11:42 PM K<Kadmus> purple "But why mayo?" Conn asks. "They would need mustard."
  715. 11:42 PM A<•Antichthon> ... She looked over Mad's shoulder. Tried touching one the strange runes.
  716. 11:43 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline shows the books to the others, bemused.
  717. 11:43 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... "True." Gungnir says with a nod.
  718. 11:43 PM U<•UltimixRed> it wasn't exactly runic, but you could attempt to decipher it with Gungnir
  719. 11:43 PM with your magic skill
  720. 11:44 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun rolls to assist Athene in figuring out what those symbols mean.
  721. 11:44 PM r 6

  723. 11:44 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene had taken a crash course on such things, but Gungnir? Such things were a part of him. She waved Gungnir over to look them over with her.
  724. 11:44 PM r 11 Quite the assist!
  725. 11:44 PM M<Mjeowlnir> Dicebot -- bestest dicebot everer Rolling 11 D6 against 5 for Antichthon: [ 6 6 5 4 3 3 3 2 2 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 3 ]
  726. 11:45 PM U<•UltimixRed> Now, Gungnir is honestly doing most of the intellectual heavy lifting, but they are able to ascertain it is in fact...a recipe for mayo.
  727. 11:46 PM Which is both full of exotic ingredients, and insanely precise. We're talking 10 or so sig figs in the measurement
  728. 11:47 PM A<•Antichthon> ... "Why would someone go through all this trouble for a sandwich?" Athene wondered aloud. Food was central to her worldview, and even she thought this was an excessive ways to go for a nice snack.
  729. 11:48 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ".. Goooood question? Maybe it's like, food of the gods, ultimate power kinda thing?"
  730. 11:48 PM ".. anyway um, we have the mayo recipe, I guess, let's.. keep going?"
  731. 11:49 PM K<Kadmus> purple "I do not understand, either." Conn shrugs. "Weh, we should keep moving. Per'aps they have already /made/ the sandwich?"
  732. 11:49 PM U<•UltimixRed> Back the way you came, or continue on?
  733. 11:49 PM A<•Antichthon> ... She met Mads' gaze. "Are there any beings that would reward ultimate power for a perfect sandwich? I mean...that's a lot of numbers after the decimal. I'm not sure my calculator could show that many."
  734. 11:49 PM Is there a path to continue on?
  735. 11:50 PM U<•UltimixRed> right from when you came...but technically left as you exit.
  736. 11:50 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ".. maybe?" Madeline giggles nervously.
  737. 11:50 PM A<•Antichthon> ... If so, Athene gave Conn a nod and a faint smile, taking point and continuing on.
  738. 11:51 PM (-If so)
  739. 11:52 PM U<•UltimixRed> Eventually they pass by the main entrance from where the first came...not the airduct anyways.
  740. 11:52 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline scurries after Athene, hurriedly!
  741. 11:52 PM U<•UltimixRed> Continue on to the final corner of the compound?
  742. 11:52 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn follows, now fairly curious. Sure, he's following someone who was recently fantasising some pretty awful things about him, but, well, why should that matter?
  743. 11:52 PM A<•Antichthon> ... (Y/N) Y
  744. 11:53 PM K<Kadmus> purple Y
  745. 11:53 PM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Y
  746. 11:53 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Jokes-that-go-over-the-limey's-head aside, yes, Athene continues on.
  747. 11:55 PM U<•UltimixRed> And finally they reach two paths. a stair downward, and a room called the Bread Office.
  748. 11:55 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun is following the rest of the group. He's Bready to go.
  749. 11:55 PM U<•UltimixRed> solid pun.
  750. 11:56 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn looks to the other two heavyweights. "Kick in the door?"
  751. 11:56 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun shrugs and looks at Athene.
  752. 11:57 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Actually, Athene tried the doorknob.
  753. 11:57 PM U<•UltimixRed> it's a slide door, like every other door in this building.
  754. 11:57 PM aka, needing a key card or calling the intercom.
  755. 11:57 PM A<•Antichthon> ... Oh. Right.
  756. 11:58 PM Screw that, Athene smashed down the door, perhaps with assistance from Gun.
  757. 11:58 PM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Definite assistance from Gun is to be had.

  763. 11:58 PM A<•Antichthon> ... OH COME ON
  764. 11:59 PM K<Kadmus> purple Conn assists too! He has a small but mighty foot!

  767. 11:59 PM U<•UltimixRed> Gun was doing most of the work, but Athene helped smash through that door.
  768. 12:00 AM U<•UltimixRed> the wafting of fresh baked bread came about, though unlike the other locations, it's a small, homely office you could find in any workplace.
  769. 12:00 AM There are several sticky notes, and an open laptop.

  785. “Lolol good luck bro, Hate them anyways.”
  786. 12:00 AM A<•Antichthon> ... As if Athene wasn't humiliated enough, Gun continued to do all the work on things.
  787. 12:01 AM K<Kadmus> purple "One day, I would like to go on a mission that does not end in a strange and humiliating fashion," Conn says, looking a little resigned.
  788. 12:02 AM A<•Antichthon> ... That made Athene feel all the more like a failure
  789. 12:02 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ".. these.. are.. strange?" Madeline scurries to look at the laptop!
  790. 12:03 AM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun blinks at Conn. "Humiliating?"
  791. 12:03 AM U<•UltimixRed> The laptop has a skype messager up called "Bread Zone Remix" where people argue about the best type of bread,  mayo absorption, chewiness, toasted qualities. The last message was a couple hours ago, and the files are locked behind passwords. they have several science related tabs, and one on reddit.
  792. 12:03 AM it was the Smash bros reddit.
  793. 12:03 AM A<•Antichthon> ... "Tell us what you find." Athene tried to look busy. She was trying not to cry, truth be told.
  794. 12:04 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ".. um.. Weird. I thiiiiink that.. our science people can get better stuff out of it than I can here. We should, um, keep moving." Madeline attempts to tuck the laptop into her private dreamspace for safekeeping!
  795. 12:04 AM K<Kadmus> purple "Weh." Conn nods, and looks to Gun. "We just spent hours here, and have very little to show for it. That is a little humiliating, tu sais?"
  796. 12:05 AM A<•Antichthon> ... "Right. We should be getting close to the end." Athene once again took point. Easiest way to make sure no one could see your face.
  797. 12:05 AM U<•UltimixRed> You have the stairs going down, and the left path you passed up earlier. Which do you go to, or do you leave?
  798. 12:05 AM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene slithers down the stairs.
  799. 12:05 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime * Madeline scurries after Athene!
  800. 12:05 AM K<Kadmus> purple Conn follows. Maybe he'll get shot or something.
  801. 12:06 AM U<•UltimixRed> The final place is the Aging Cheese room.  
  802. 12:06 AM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun shrugs, following Athene and speaking to Conn. "We were tasked with determining whether or not they are a threat. As of now, I believe that they are not. Though who is to say what we will find."
  803. 12:06 AM U<•UltimixRed> more doors, but this one is even better protected than the others
  804. 12:07 AM A<•Antichthon> ... "They all cleared out when I was detected going down the smokestack," Athene said, trying to sound cheerful, and vowing to never, ever, ever tell the others what really happened. "So at least we should have an easy time of it from here on out." She paused before the door. "Conn, Gungnir, help me out."
  805. 12:08 AM K<Kadmus> purple Conn's happy to help!

  815. 12:09 AM K<Kadmus> purple It appears that Gun and Athene pick Conn up and use him like abattering ram.
  816. 12:09 AM A<•Antichthon> ... +8 dice for Conn!

  819. 12:09 AM A<•Antichthon> ... Indeed, Conn-ram. It felt good, smashing his face into a solid metal door.
  820. 12:10 AM U<•UltimixRed> he barely feels the concussion as he is thrown through the room. Which seems to be way warmer than everything else here, with altered space, with racks upon racks of cheeses, aging. All sorts, 10 pound wheels though.
  821. 12:10 AM There are several sticky notes arguing the benefits of each cheese, the last one just says "Goddamn what's our budget. Let's do em all."
  822. 12:11 AM K<Kadmus> purple "This cheese," Conn begins, his eyes unfocussed. "Much cheese."
  823. 12:11 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline just gawks in bemusement as she walks into the CHEESE ROOM after Conn, peering at the shelves and notes.
  824. 12:11 AM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene made sure to kindly put Conn on his feet and give him another smile that didn't reach her eyes. "Thank you." She gave him a friendly pat on the back
  825. 12:12 AM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun looks around idly, just kind of, looking for anything out of the ordinary.
  826. 12:12 AM A<•Antichthon> ... Athene looked up and down the rows of cheese. "Bread, cheese, meat, lettuce, mayo...what other ingredients would there be?"
  827. 12:12 AM U<•UltimixRed> Gung finds not much of anything, except that runs are all around the room to maintain the place exactly as is.
  828. 12:12 AM They seem to be REALLY serious about their ingredients
  829. 12:13 AM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun scratches off a rune on the wall, just to see what happens really.
  830. 12:13 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "Mmmmmaybe onions? We don't have the full recip- OH! We need to check the um, the way we didn't go! Maybe there's a recipe there!"
  831. 12:13 AM U<•UltimixRed> the temperature starts shifting, making it colder.
  832. 12:13 AM K<Kadmus> purple Conn blinks a couple of times as his regeneration fixes the damage. "That's a lot of cheese. Shame it's probably all made of something terrible."
  833. 12:13 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline shivers!
  834. 12:13 AM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Much better. It was too warm in here anyways.
  835. 12:14 AM U<•UltimixRed> it really was, cheese aging is a ....hot business right now
  836. 12:14 AM A<•Antichthon> ... "I don't think they'd ever have abandoned all this work," Athene said, "unless they already succeeded." She looked to each of them in turn. "Think of the mayo."
  837. 12:14 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime ".. exactly."
  838. 12:15 AM K<Kadmus> purple "Is there a mising wheel? Or slice?" Conn muses, looking around.
  839. 12:15 AM U<•UltimixRed> A bunch of the cheese wheels are missing slices.
  840. 12:16 AM B<BobaFettuccine> ... "So. They have made a perfect sandwich. Should we radio this in?" Gun asks with a raised eyebrow.
  841. 12:16 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "Um. Maybe they didn't. We have the lettuce, remember?"
  842. 12:16 AM ".. we should check the last, um, area."
  843. 12:17 AM K<Kadmus> purple "Should we, ah, remove the lettuce from play?" Conn asks, looking a little bemused.
  844. 12:17 AM A<•Antichthon> ... "Agreed." Athene headed back up the stairs, towards the remaining unexplored area of the building.
  845. 12:17 AM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Another shrug, "Yes. Lettuce keep going."
  846. 12:17 AM A<•Antichthon> ... "Do we know they didn't take any of the lettuce?"
  847. 12:17 AM K<Kadmus> purple "We do not."
  848. 12:17 AM A<•Antichthon> ... It took several seconds for the pun to sink in. Athene groaned.
  849. 12:18 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "We don't! And-" Mads also groans!
  850. 12:18 AM K<Kadmus> purple "Are you alright?" Conn asks, looking concerned. "Are you ill?"
  851. 12:19 AM U<•UltimixRed> It's a good 10 or so minutes, the place if pretty quiet except for the thrum of machines and the AC. Eventually they go down the hallway with what a surprise, another fucking door. The plaque reads "Head Researcher Bruteshot's Office."
  852. 12:20 AM A<•Antichthon> ... Turns out Conn is an idiot. "I think they pulled out because they don't need anything here anymore. I mean, they're anomalous terrorists, right? I think I've even heard about the Eye of Infinity before. If they still needed this place, wouldn't they have brought in a team of superanomalies to take it back from us?"
  853. 12:20 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "Bruteshot?"
  854. 12:20 AM Madeline scurries over to try the door.
  855. 12:21 AM U<•UltimixRed> It's once again...oh wait. It's a normal door with a normal doorknob!
  856. 12:21 AM K<Kadmus> purple "Bruteshot sounds bad." Conn says. "Let's go in!"
  857. 12:21 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline OPENS THE DOOAH!
  858. 12:21 AM U<•UltimixRed> Holy shit....it isn't locked
  859. 12:22 AM B<BobaFettuccine> ... "The security on this place has been bare minimum. I believe that You are right Athene."
  860. 12:22 AM U<•UltimixRed> When you enter the room, there are two important things. There is a giant whiteboard with equations all over, and a turned on desktop.

  872. 12:25 AM A<•Antichthon> ... Well, Athene and Gungnir may, after much brow-wiping concentration, identify that it is, in fact ,a whiteboard.
  873. 12:26 AM U<•UltimixRed> Now Conrad has a much more successful time making out these frankly absurd equations. they are insanely precise (Each has at least 20 or so sig figs) , and accounting for factors such as phase of the moon, Earth’s orbital axis, what the weather will be, and the temperature at which bread is eaten.
  874. 12:26 AM Gungnir or Athene can roll their magic skill, at -1.
  875. 12:26 AM K<Kadmus> purple "This is stupid," Conn says. "There is no way you can actually account for all of those factors."
  876. 12:26 AM A<•Antichthon> ... "I thought there was no accounting for taste." Had to be said.

  881. 12:29 AM U<•UltimixRed> Now, Gungnir and Athene recognize it after a moment. The recipe for the bread is pretty much a super advanced form of raw formulaic magic, far beyond your proficiency. All for a fucking sandwich.
  882. 12:29 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline.. plucks her camera out of nowhere and snaps a picture of the whiteboard and all that's on it, before she turns her attention to the desktop computer! She tries to wake it up.
  883. 12:30 AM U<•UltimixRed> It does wake up, and there are some datalogs to look through, though one is open from about a month ago.
  884. 12:30 AM It's an IRC style chat btw.
  885. 12:30 AM A<•Antichthon> ... "I thought 'best sandwich' was an opinion," Athene said, bewildered. "How are they getting such crazy numbers?"
  886. 12:30 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Hm! Madeline will snap pictures, scrolling the logs, and otherwise track and record everything!

  909. 12:37 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "I think the sandwich is just a proof of concept for something-" Madeline peeeeeks up at the giant machine and gawks. Of course, Conrad isn't very tall at all, so it being taller than him makes sense.

  1006. 1:00 AM U<•UltimixRed> > Athene
  1007. 1:00 AM A<•Antichthon> ... r 2
  1008. 1:00 AM M<Mjeowlnir> Dicebot -- bestest dicebot everer Rolling 2 D6 against 5 for Antichthon: [ 6 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 1 ]
  1009. 1:01 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "O-oh!" Madeline meeps.
  1010. 1:02 AM A<•Antichthon> ... Wow, whowever was behind this was giving them almost too much information. Normally she'd be suspicious about being spoon-fed these facts, but she was ragged. ~Mads, do what you did before with the walkie-talkies!~
  1011. 1:02 AM r 7 Minor action, magic weapon
  1012. 1:02 AM M<Mjeowlnir> Dicebot -- bestest dicebot everer Rolling 7 D6 against 5 for Antichthon: [ 5 3 2 2 1 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 1 ]
  1013. 1:02 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "O-okay!"
  1014. 1:02 AM A<•Antichthon> ... 1 success to AP, 9d 2ap for 1 round
  1015. 1:03 AM r 22 Good thing Athene has lots of effort. None now, though. (9d 2ap)
  1016. 1:03 AM M<Mjeowlnir> Dicebot -- bestest dicebot everer Rolling 22 D6 against 5 for Antichthon: [ 6 6 6 6 5 5 5 5 5 5 4 4 4 3 3 3 2 2 1 1 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 10 ]
  1017. 1:03 AM U<•UltimixRed> r 15 Tanks for the memories
  1018. 1:03 AM M<Mjeowlnir> Dicebot -- bestest dicebot everer Rolling 15 D6 against 5 for UltimixRed: [ 6 5 5 5 4 4 3 3 2 1 1 1 1 1 1 ] with a TN of [ 5 ] Successes [ 4 ]
  1019. 1:04 AM U<•UltimixRed> The axe bisects the robot suit from the waist up, crumpling the metal to...nothing inside. but the robot seems no longer operational. The speaker system seems to short out as well.
  1020. 1:06 AM A<•Antichthon> ... "Oh. Well, that works, too." Athene tried to pull her axe out of the robot, but probably just succeeded in lifting the whole thing and had to resort to wiping it off like fly guts from a swatter.
  1021. 1:06 AM K<Kadmus> purple Conn is going to continue trying to heal Athene, considering the fact he's now noticed the obvious damage.
  1022. 1:07 AM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun looks around. "I think we're done here then?"
  1023. 1:07 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "I.. I um, I think so. Weee- we should go? Urgh, it still feels weird somehow.."
  1024. 1:07 AM U<•UltimixRed> The office is pretty much obliterated. Any of the files are not going to be salvaged anytime soon.
  1025. 1:08 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime At least Mads got photographs of the formula and the logs and stuff!
  1026. 1:08 AM Good job, Mads!
  1027. 1:08 AM U<•UltimixRed> You are now in an empty compound full of cooking materials, standing with an empty robo carcass...What do you do?
  1028. 1:09 AM A<•Antichthon> ... And Athene would deign to let him. Okay, she tried not to see so smug and aloof about it, but it came so naturally and she didn't have the energy to hide it.
  1029. 1:09 AM K<Kadmus> purple "We should take the robot back with us. It may be useful for evidence, non?"
  1030. 1:09 AM Conn doesn't notice smug or aloof. He can be dense that way.
  1031. 1:09 AM A<•Antichthon> ... "Yeah. Also, let's try to take a sample of all the ingredients."
  1032. 1:09 AM U<•UltimixRed> it's a pretty heavy suit, considering it's also packing lots of ammo. It'd take all 4 of them to lift it up.
  1033. 1:09 AM There is absolutely no more ham to sample.
  1034. 1:10 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "I think so.. Okay." Madeline will scurry to the other rooms and tuck samples into her local dreamscape before returning to send a comm out to Command!
  1035. 1:11 AM U<•UltimixRed> "So...did you confirm anything about the sandwich project? is the Eye of Infinity a threat?"
  1036. 1:11 AM A<•Antichthon> ... Wow. Even Athene couldn't lift this monster of a suit alone. She tapped her chin. "Don't robots have a computer core or something of the like?"
  1037. 1:11 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime "Um- they're trying to do something called Telos, and the sandwich project was a.. proof of concept? And they're um, moving kids. We got communications from their lieutenants and um, formulas and ingredients and stuff."
  1038. 1:11 AM K<Kadmus> purple "Per'aps they can take the robot out with us, the same way they sent us here?" Conn says, hands still on Athene's tail as he continues transferring injuries.
  1039. 1:11 AM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun shrugs, "Technopath maybe?"
  1040. 1:12 AM U<•UltimixRed> Doctor Meswaran's voice is quick and swift, the sound of typing is heard in the background. "Hmm...thank you for gathering the intel, we'll take it from here."
  1041. 1:12 AM A green portal opens up in front of the group.
  1042. 1:13 AM B<BobaFettuccine> ... Gun shrugs and walks through the portal to go home.
  1043. 1:13 AM K<Kadmus> purple Conn helps drag the robo-suit through the portal.
  1044. 1:14 AM A<•Antichthon> ... She was feeling a lot better now, a lot more able to keep her Echidnean nature, and her shame, inside. "Yeah, I guess they can send a team in." For some reason, Athene was worried the Eye would somehow blow this place up before they could. Eh, probably just being paranoid. Athene headed through the portal, helping with the suit if she could.
  1045. 1:14 AM And after all was said and done, Athene would head right for the shower with about ten bottles of Peach Bellini body wash.
  1046. 1:15 AM K<Kadmus> purple Conn needs another shirt. This one's got bullet holes and bloodstains on it.
  1047. 1:15 AM N<•Nemi> Nemitron Prime Madeline scurries back with her loot to head on through the portal, and promptly dumps all her findings and samples out for the science men to look through!
  1048. 1:15 AM U<•UltimixRed> - - RUN BREAD! - -  
  1049. 1:15 AM A<•Antichthon> ... And try to figure out if there was an indigestible tub iside of her. That, too.

  1051. 1:16 AM 5 XP and $300
