  11. [2012-08-01 13:00:19] <Kkat> 3(With audio augmentation by Scorch_Mechanic!  http://tindeck.com/listen/xmrg )
  12. [2012-08-01 13:00:33] <Kkat> 3“The portal to hell is opened by the incantation of good intentions.”
  13. [2012-08-01 13:00:46] <Kkat> 3History.
  14. [2012-08-01 13:00:54] <Kkat> 3We devour the events of the present like starving children.  Our experiences nourish us, fill us. But then, all too, often, we forget about the meal once it is over, giving it no further heed or contemplation to suppers long past.  
  15. [2012-08-01 13:01:04] <Kkat> 3But history, like the punga, leaves its seeds.  
  16. [2012-08-01 13:01:25] <Kkat> 3Gaia Valley’s history had seeds whose roots ran deep.  In the last months of the war, Solaris strove to create an alternate solution to revitalizing Equestria in the wake of a megaspell apocalypse.  
  17. [2012-08-01 13:01:33] <Kkat> 3Their solution was a plant created to feed on the toxins and magical radiation that would poison Equestria in the aftermath of such an attack.  A plant magically engineered to grow and spread voraciously, to take root everywhere there was radiation and cleanse it.
  18. [2012-08-01 13:01:50] <Kkat> 3In order to test their creation, Solaris first had to imitate the conditions of a post-apocalyptic Equestria.  And they did so by detonating a zebra balefire bomb in the heart of the geographically enclosed Gaia Valley.  Where and how they procured this weapon is still unknown.
  19. [2012-08-01 13:02:07] <Kkat> 3The apocalypse did come.
  20. [2012-08-01 13:02:17] <Kkat> 3The employees of the Solaris research facility at the edge of the valley took shelter in the bowels of their building, hiding from the devastation that tried to end the world.  Over a generation later, they emerged to find not devistation but an isolated paradise.  
  21. [2012-08-01 13:02:25] <Kkat> 3Solaris’ experiment was a success; and in fate’s twisted sense of irony, Gaia Valley had become an oasis in the wasteland.  
  22. [2012-08-01 13:02:42] <Kkat> 3What had once been workers within different departments of the Solaris facility and evolved into separate tribes.  For a while, those tribes were peaceful towards each other.  But strangers found their way into the valley.
  23. [2012-08-01 13:02:51] <Kkat> 3At first, friendly explorers.  But later, representatives of Red Eye’s slaver empire reached out, forging an alliance with one of the tribes, the White Hooves, and giving them the means to conquer the others.  The White Hooves turned on the other tribes, intent on taking the valley for themselves and giving those they did not kill to Red Eye as slaves.  
  24. [2012-08-01 13:03:05] <Kkat> 3The other tribes banded together and fought back.  And when Red Eye was defeated, the White Hooves’ outside support evaporated.  The other tribe won, and although not all survived, they broke the White Hooves and drove them from Gaia Valley.
  25. [2012-08-01 13:03:24] <Kkat> 3But this was not enough to save Gaia Valley.  The alliance between Red Eye and the White Hooves was noticed by the Enclave.  The Enclave’s original plot against the valley and its inhabitants didn’t survive the tides of war.
  26. [2012-08-01 13:03:37] <Kkat> 3But years later, when the pegasi civil war had shifted, driving the Enclave and those loyal to them into retreat, the Enclave once again turned an eye to Gaia Valley.  This time, as a refuge.
  27. [2012-08-01 13:03:54] <Kkat> 3The Enclave descended on Gaia Valley in great force.  But the valley was not without its defenders.  A band now called The Heroes of the North stood between the Enclave and the tribals of the valley.  And it is because of them that any survived.  
  28. [2012-08-01 13:04:05] <Kkat> 3But they could not hold back the Enclave, and eventually chose to shield the tribes as they evacuated the valley that had been their home for nearly two hundred years.
  29. [2012-08-01 13:04:15] <Kkat> 3Today, more than twenty years later, small bands of Enclave Loyalists still use Gaia Valley as a save haven and a base from which to conduct raids and stockpile in the vain hope of a future return to glory.
  30. [2012-08-01 13:04:36] <Kkat> 3But there was at least one more seed planted in the history of Gaia Valley: that of the punga itself.  Designed to be Equestria’s salvation, the punga was a plague in plant form.  One that would blanket the land, choking the life out of every rival, slaughtering every creature that has been exposed to radiation – and that was all of them.
  31. [2012-08-01 13:04:47] <Kkat> 3If the punga escaped its enclosed environment, it would spread like a disease, causing the extinction of countless species, including the ponies of Equestria.
  32. [2012-08-01 13:05:00] <Kkat> 3The punga did get out.  But before it could spread, the Gardens of Equestria purged the land of the very radiation that the punga needed to survive.  The new Bearers of the Elements never knew the ecological holocaust that they prevented.  
  33. [2012-08-01 13:05:17] <Kkat> 3Only in the strange muds and waters of the Froggy Bottom Bog and Lookout Plateau did the punga survive – and only then because they were mutated by their environment beyond anything that Solaris would have recognized as their hoofwork.
  34. [2012-08-01 13:05:31] <Kkat> 3Now, our heroes stand at the center of the very last seed planted by the Solaris legacy, as they journey deeper into the Solaris Research & Execution North facility, hunted by the last surviving member of an Enclave Loyalist squad.
  35. [2012-08-01 13:05:50] <Kkat> 3--- Session begins ---
  36. [2012-08-01 13:06:03] <Kkat> 3Noble_Heart breaths the briefest sigh of relief before the detonation behind her reaches her ears followed by the sound of gunfire in the stairwell behind her.  
  37. [2012-08-01 13:06:10] <Kkat> 3She turns her head, only to see blasts of energy and the sudden return fire from her companions – return fire that sends the flying turrets spiraling from the sky in a shower of sparks, debris and chaos.  
  38. [2012-08-01 13:06:17] <Kkat> 3Spending only a moment to levitate the magical energy mine she had just disabled to one of her companions, Noble_Heart calls back, “Someone with skill in explosives take this.  We are going on ahead.”
  39. [2012-08-01 13:06:24] <Kkat> 3With that, Noble Heart rushes forwards, throwing the door to the basement open with her telekinesis, intent on finding the pegasus who was attacking them.  The light of her horn pierces the darkness, revealing the two additional magical energy mines that their fleeing hunter had left in his wake.

  54. [2012-08-01 13:15:08] * Kid looks at the mine with a sense of bewilderment. Sure, she could take them, might sell for a good price. She's more concerned about... Well. To be honest, showing Noble up. But who doesn't want that, to be honest?
  55. [2012-08-01 13:15:44] * Mitzi would love to show Noble up; she just needed more of those whirlygigs to show up

  58. [2012-08-01 13:25:02] * Kid looks around and tries to find out where she went. How do you misplace somepony with such a huge flank? Who is such a huge flank...? Whatever. She can worry about what the most passive aggressive way to deal with her later.
  59. [2012-08-01 13:26:21] * Mitzi lowers her arms; "Why wasn't there a kaboom?"
  60. [2012-08-01 13:26:50] * Noble_Heart stops in the doorway at the sound of the beeping. In a moment she cast her telekinesis across the door and slammed it closed, hopefully before the detonation. She stood in place with her hooves planted doing her best to prepare for what was likely to be a very unpleasant (and possibly fatal) experience the moment the mines detonated on the other side of that door. "We will
  61. [2012-08-01 13:26:50] * Noble_Heart not abandon Our new allies. All of you must run! Before these mines explode! We will attempt to contain them!" Her shield was brilliant in its glow as she stood firmly in the doorway.
  62. [2012-08-01 13:29:28] * Kid looks up with a wily look in her eyes, teeth grit and showing a sort of determination not befitting of somepony her age! "Noble, what th' hell's goin' on? Why're there 'splosions happenin'?"
  63. [2012-08-01 13:30:30] * Noble_Heart shouts back. "Get thine undetonated backsides from this stairwell!"
  64. [2012-08-01 13:32:03] * Crescendo_ sneaks back up the stairs, oblivious to what is happening below. He'd hidden from them before, so hopefully he could check for more of those robots to give the group some advanced warning.
  65. [2012-08-01 13:32:06] * Kid blinks. "... What?"
  66. [2012-08-01 13:32:55] <Noble_Heart> "RUN!" She really couldn't put it in simpler words, could she? She knew that normal ponies were somewhat slower than her blessed kind, but she had hoped they would pick up on the idea of evacuating a soon to be exploded area.
  67. [2012-08-01 13:32:58] <Kkat> 3>>> WHA*BOOOOM*!!!<<<
  68. [2012-08-01 13:36:25] <Kkat> 3The magical energy mines detonate on the opposite side of the door, releasing furious, destructive light and force.  The door is blown off its hinges, surrounded in swirling green and blue flame.  The metal door dissolves before crashing into Noble_Heart's shield.  
  69. [2012-08-01 13:36:31] <Kkat> 3The magical energy eats away at the walls around the doorframe, and floods over Noble_Heart's alicorn shield.
  70. [2012-08-01 13:36:52] * Mitzi hears the command to 'run' and grabs Kid up, rolling to the side. There was the kaboom

  79. [2012-08-01 13:46:13] * Mitzi gets up, letting Kid go and looking her over; "Yu okay filly?"
  80. [2012-08-01 13:47:55] * Get_Lost reaches Noble_Heart and tries to retrieve the magical bandages "hod on i'll fix that up before you can say where it hurts!"
  81. [2012-08-01 13:48:24] * Noble_Heart stood in place the briefest moments as her shield flared violently against the flames, the powerful arcane detonation sweeping within her protective shell and scorching her coat and flesh. By the time the green light died out the alicorn was looking much less regal and much more in pain. Smoke rose from large, obvious burns across her flesh as she wobbled on her hooves.
  82. [2012-08-01 13:48:25] * Noble_Heart "We. Will not... Fail... Our-" she doesn't even have the strength to finish her own defiant statement, collapsing to the ground and panting for breath as she struggles to stay out of the pit of shock and agony.
  83. [2012-08-01 13:49:19] * Kid watches as she takes the brunt of it and was very silent for a moment. No. Nonono. Nopony... Nopony gets to hurt anyone. No. That's not how it was supposed to go! She was supposed to be a... I mean, she wasn't supposed to go and blow herself up! That wasn't the plan! She attempted to crawl out from under Mitzi, grateful for her presence. "Get! Get Lost, get yer skinny flank over here right...
  84. [2012-08-01 13:49:19] * Crescendo_ swears loudly as his backside is lightly cooked by unexpected scorching magical wind. Very sneaky.
  85. [2012-08-01 13:49:20] * Kid ...now!" She gripped her shotgun tightly. Her eye went wild and angry. She ran down to the alicorn and attempted to take point.
  86. [2012-08-01 13:51:45] * Bookwright reaches the bottom of the stairs and, whilst not being well versed in combat, knows enough to sweep the room beyond while the others are preoccupied with tending to his fellow Follower. The magical energy pistol floating besides him twitches and jerks excitedly, as if seeking to continue the fight on its own.
  87. [2012-08-01 13:52:08] * Get_Lost is already doing her best

  91. [2012-08-01 13:53:27] * Mitzi picks herself up and dusts off. She was only lightly singed, while the alicorn was in much worse shape. "Winged horned ponee hurt. Uh'll protect ponee." She follows Kid with her claws bared to stand between the wounded companion and whatever else was ahead. Her trio of dogs bark loudly and follow
  92. [2012-08-01 13:56:13] * Kid starts feeling her temper flare up again. She cantered over to the other side of the room where the explosions originated and looked around like a good little scout. What the fuck did this?
  93. [2012-08-01 13:56:35] |<-- Ashen_Ward has left irc.canternet.org (Quit: )
  94. [2012-08-01 13:56:48] * Get_Lost is nervous and makes a mess on her first aqttempt, wasting a medical bandage, but still has another, so tries again
  95. [2012-08-01 13:56:57] * Noble_Heart was breathing shallow and fast, in obvious pain and confusion as her eyes refused to focus properly. She was muttering something under her breath over and over, too quiet to be understood. Her spells had dissipated from the sheer shock of the harm she sustained, the poor Alicorn struggling to hold on to consciousness.
  96. [2012-08-01 14:00:38] * Get_Lost does her best to keep the alicorn together, messes a lot but in the end succeeds in putting together some decent medication
  97. [2012-08-01 14:02:11] * Kid can't make anything out in the middle of the smoke and the tears in her eyes. No, no. Water. Those are your eyes watering, Kid. Don't you dare cry now!
  98. [2012-08-01 14:03:04] * Get_Lost "i... i think she's fine now.... and that was the good news... problem is, the next time somepony gets hurt, i wont' be able to do anything, i'm out of supplies"
  99. [2012-08-01 14:03:07] * Kid pointed her shotgun out and around, trying to pick something up regardless. "Noble! What th' fuck did this!"
  100. [2012-08-01 14:03:34] * Bookwright stands watch over Noble_Heart and Get_Lost. He can't see fuck all, but he'll be damned before he abandons these ponies.
  101. [2012-08-01 14:03:50] * Mitzi pats Kid on the head; "We'll take care of da bad ponee together. Den nu more kabooms."
  102. [2012-08-01 14:05:10] * Noble_Heart gradually calms down, her breathing growing more regular and less desperate and her confused mumbling beginning to come back towards normalcy. Her voice was practically a whisper when she spoke, despite its usual power and projection. "We followed... Enclave pegasus... Angry. Mines belong to him. Down here. Hiding. Dangerous." Not the most dignified of conversations, but
  103. [2012-08-01 14:05:10] * Noble_Heart right now she didn't feel like breathing, much less talking.
  104. [2012-08-01 14:06:35] * Mitzi turns around and seeks out Get_Lost. She pulls a pair of healing potions out of her scrap leather vestements and offers them to Get_Lost. "Uh was saveen dis, but she need dem more."
  105. [2012-08-01 14:07:06] |<-- Silva_Mane has left irc.canternet.org (Quit: See you !)
  106. [2012-08-01 14:07:33] * Get_Lost wave a hoof taking just one potion "keep one, for emergencies...."
  107. [2012-08-01 14:07:41] * Bookwright feels more nervous and flighty. Now that the adrenaline of combat and the unthinking reflexes trained into him by his parents and later, the followers, has faded. He feels jittery, disconnected, and a little bewildered now that his first genuine combat is over.
  108. [2012-08-01 14:08:40] * Kid looked at her and for a little while, all drama was out of the way. There was simply another pony who had made themselves unwelcome to her, and the pony they hurt. "Which way did that mule go?"
  109. [2012-08-01 14:09:21] * Mitzi nods and pockets the other potion again
  110. [2012-08-01 14:09:52] * Mitzi lumbers back over to Kid; "Eef eet's just one ponee, we can du eet."
  111. [2012-08-01 14:10:01] <Kkat> 3Beyond the much-widened doorway is a hall that runs left, delving into blackness.  Colored smoke curls through the air, filling the visible part of the hall and the bottom of the stairwell in a wavering haze.
  112. [2012-08-01 14:10:44] * Bookwright peers again through the haze. No smoke should be /that/ color.
  113. [2012-08-01 14:10:48] * Get_Lost opens the healing potion and offers it to Noble_Heart "srink this, those guys play with mines i don't want you to take any risk"
  114. [2012-08-01 14:12:58] * Noble_Heart reached out with her magic to float the healing potion to her lips, slowly downing it as she climbed back to her hooves. "We thank you for your help." Letting the magic of the bandages and potion heal her wounds. "We are sorry that We were injured such. It is to Our embarassment that such a thing might happen." She slowly shook her head. "We will fight to protect you ponies
  115. [2012-08-01 14:12:59] * Noble_Heart from any danger." How did you manage to be so condescending and yet so noble at the same time?
  116. [2012-08-01 14:14:41] * Get_Lost shrugs "souds like a plan, big girl... just be careful, okay? i'll be back there being useless"
  117. [2012-08-01 14:15:41] * Bookwright mutters out the side of his mouth. "Sorry nothing. You saved our hineys with that shield of yours."
  118. [2012-08-01 14:16:50] * Mitzi looks back to the rest of the group; "We shud go quick. Catch bad ponee before he sets up any more explodeen tings."
  119. [2012-08-01 14:17:19] * Noble_Heart steps forwards towards the, now wider, doorway. In a moment her horn glowed as the brilliance of her shield encompassed her once again, levitating the golf club from the ground where it had fallen. "We will lead the way, lest one of you ponies is injured in Our abscence." She was already moving into the scorched room to search for signs of where the pegasus had gone.
  120. [2012-08-01 14:18:05] * Kid spots the large doorway and scans the visible area in the doorway. "If ya'll do that, then I can't shoot 'em through your shield. Naw. I have t' be up there too."
  121. [2012-08-01 14:19:30] * Mitzi smiles at Kid, then looks to Noble; "Uh hav tu be up close tu. Laser guns not fixed yet, so Uh have tu use ur claws."
  122. [2012-08-01 14:20:04] * Bookwright falls into step besides Noble_Heart. "You're a darned sight too eager to get yourself hurt instead of one of us for my liking. Just what is your deal, Miss Heart? I'm out here to preserve history before it is lost, what task have you put on yourself?"

  124. [2012-08-01 14:20:47] * Crescendo_ drinks a potion to ease his sore behind, then heads downstairs to join the others.
  125. [2012-08-01 14:23:00] * Bookwright 's eyes narrow, and his floating pistol twitches more animatedly. "I think... I think I just saw something... Keep an eye out!"
  126. [2012-08-01 14:25:14] * Kid , on a better day, would've pretended to be offended by that. Right now, she's too busy trying to get this pony. "Ya'll hurry up! We got a pony that needs some justice done to 'em?"
  127. [2012-08-01 14:25:27] <Get_Lost> staggers behind the group, trying to keep a decentdistance to avoind being involved in another explosion that could prove lethal for her
  128. [2012-08-01 14:25:28] <Kid> (!")
  129. [2012-08-01 14:26:02] * Noble_Heart frowns and contemplates how to answer Bookwright's question. "We are here on behalf of Our new mother. It is important." Apparently that was all the answer she was going to give. "We would not forgive Ourselves if innocent ponies were left to suffer because We ignored their plight! The Goddess mistook selfishness for friendship and sought to make all ponies part of Her. We
  130. [2012-08-01 14:26:02] * Noble_Heart will not forget that ponies need Our help, but as Our friends." She doesn't complain about the others staying close though. It's actually kindof reassuring. She moves into the smoke slowly.
  131. [2012-08-01 14:26:57] * Noble_Heart pauses to levitate a set of three healing potions from one of her bags and offers them to Get Lost. "We have brought supplies on Our journey. Will they aid you in helping Our new friends?"
  132. [2012-08-01 14:28:54] * Get_Lost weakly nods "i guess i'l ltake one, thanks... and i think that also kid needs some help...." trots towards kid "here, drink this"
  133. [2012-08-01 14:29:32] * Kid grits her teeth. "This bugger's jus' wantin' t' taste some smokeless powder." She's pretty willing to taste some potion. Mmm. Strawberry.
  134. [2012-08-01 14:29:47] * Crescendo_ whistles at the scene of destruction. "Wow, guess that boom wasn't just my overactive imagination." Seeing Get_Lost stagger, he rushes over to try and help. "I guess we didn't get away scot-free either."
  135. [2012-08-01 14:30:53] * Bookwright suddenly remembers he's toting along a deactivated magical energy mine. "Does anypony want this thing? I can't make heads or tails of it."
  136. [2012-08-01 14:31:00] * Get_Lost givs back to Noble_Heart the third potion "thank you"
  137. [2012-08-01 14:33:04] <Kkat> 3The hall doesn't continue more than ten meters before ending in collapsed rubble.  Along the way, there are two closed doors on the left, each marked as the "colts" and "fillies" rooms.  And just before the rubble, there is an open doorway on the right.  There is something on the ground in the doorway, but you can't quite make it out.
  138. [2012-08-01 14:34:35] * Bookwright hold out a hoof to stop Noble_Heart's advance. "Woah there lady. I don't want you to step on another mine, we just fixed you up from the last one."
  139. [2012-08-01 14:36:42] * Noble_Heart slows her pace slightly at Bookwright's words. She frowns and responds with her head held high. "We are the toughest pony amongst Our friends. Is it not best that We risk the damage rather than let one of you little ponies suffer such harm?" She looked down at Blookwright with a caring smile despite her haughty attitude. "But We will pause Our crusade to see this wicked

  142. [2012-08-01 14:38:07] * Bookwright flicks back his hat with a wisp of telekinesis. "Wow. No wonder you got sent out by your 'new mother'. You're a hairsbreadth away from just as condescending as the 'old mother'. Or at least, as far as I can tell from what I've read..."
  143. [2012-08-01 14:39:57] * Noble_Heart 's smile fades almost instantly into a glower at the mention of her 'old mother'. "We are nothing like her! We are noble, caring. We would help protect those ponies who need Our power and rebuild the Equestria which once was! She was a monster, an abomination born of ego and ambition untempered by kindness or friendship." She snorts angrily. "We will never be like her."
  144. [2012-08-01 14:39:58] * Noble_Heart Turning her head away from Bookwright dismissively.
  145. [2012-08-01 14:40:53] * Kid rolls her eyes. "We can ride on Princess in a lil' bit. Right now, I'm pretty durned afraid of where Mister McExplosives-flank has gone." She almost slapped herself for supporting Noble, but this is kind of not the time or the place to rib on anypony.
  146. [2012-08-01 14:41:18] * Bookwright is taken aback. "Please, excuse my improper turn of phrase. I didn't mean it like that. You are clearly an exemplary... er... example of Alicorn-ness."
  147. [2012-08-01 14:41:23] * Get_Lost mutters "i was born after the goddes death, but i heard she was quite the... ah... loco en el coco kind... some sort of solary honorary member..."

  151. [2012-08-01 14:43:23] <Kkat> 3The reek of the magical energy explosion makes tracking extremely difficult.  But Mitzi is catching enough traces to know that the enemy pony went past the restrooms to the end of the hall.
  152. [2012-08-01 14:45:29] * Noble_Heart sighs quietly and lowers her head slightly at Bookwright's apology. "We are sorry as well. We should not take such comments so personally. But it has been many years since We were freed from Her tyranny and still We suffer beneath the image which ponies retain. Even all the good works of the Followers and Our assistannce in them has not wiped Her stain from Our honor. We
  153. [2012-08-01 14:45:30] * Noble_Heart do not wish to be Her. Nor to be as She was." A... Surprising degree of humility there, all things considered. "Your apology is accepted and We will not hold your choice of words against you." Ah, there it was.
  154. [2012-08-01 14:45:36] * Kid breathes heavily, pointing at the door. "Alright. We prolly want t' go t' th' open room. 'Less it's a trap." She looks around. "I don' see any more options."
  155. [2012-08-01 14:45:41] * Mitzi passes by the first two doors up to the one just before the rubble. She waves her arms in the air; "Dis one. Bad Ponee went dis way."
  156. [2012-08-01 14:48:13] * Bookwright relaxes a bit and dissolves the magic around his energy weapon, holstering it. "Looks like whoever attacked us is on the run. That's leather armor in the doorway." He snares it with his magic and floats it back to himself.
  157. [2012-08-01 14:48:45] * Get_Lost "maybe they'll accept to give up if we ask nicely?"
  158. [2012-08-01 14:49:08] * Noble_Heart snorts and moves towards the doorway. "Then we must hurry! Our enemy will surely attempt to flee from us and from this place!"
  159. [2012-08-01 14:50:53] * Kid steps forward. "Quick and careful first! This pony's already blown us up once, we aren't gon' want t' get that way again!"
  160. [2012-08-01 14:51:00] <Kkat> 3As Noble_Heart reaches the doorway, she can see the ruins of a robotics lab.  On the floor just a little ways in is the Enclave loyalist's battle saddle.
  161. [2012-08-01 14:52:07] * Kid runs to the other side of the room and presses herself against the opposite side of the wall to the battle saddle. "Unicorns! Lift that thing up!"
  162. [2012-08-01 14:52:28] * Noble_Heart frowns and reaches out with her magic to levitate the weapons up and past her shield towards the others as she steps fully within. "Our enemy must be fleeing quickly to have left so much behind. She must not believe she can fight Us if We catch her." Taking a moment to glance around the room for any sign of where the pegasus could have gone.
  163. [2012-08-01 14:52:40] * Get_Lost goes sitting next to kid, the filly seems to kno how to stay out of trouble
  164. [2012-08-01 14:53:18] * Crescendo_ "Careful, that thing could be booby trapped."
  165. [2012-08-01 14:53:21] * Mitzi enters the room and starts sniffing around some more, taking in the scent on the discarded leather barding and battle saddle to assist her.
  166. [2012-08-01 14:53:52] * Kid sternly proceeds forward, eye and the muzzle of her gun darting from corner to corner. "... This pony's got too much t' answer for t' let 'em go."
  167. [2012-08-01 14:54:22] <Kkat> 3There are several half-constructed robots in this room.  A wall of recharger units line one wall.  A spark generator sits in another corner with thick cables leading to an assembly machine.  Scrap electronics and metal are everywhere.

  170. [2012-08-01 14:56:26] <Kkat> 3A moment later, the grenade explodes.
  171. [2012-08-01 15:01:03] * Noble_Heart stands her ground as the grenade detonates, most of its explosive force absorbed by the thick layers of magical protection her shield provides, only small cuts and bruises adding to her already damaged body, mostly healed by bandages and potions. "We are beginning to become irritated. This pony shall not escape Us!"
  172. [2012-08-01 15:01:57] * Mitzi is knocked over by the blast, but gets back up a few moments later, her thick hide peppered with bits of debris; "Uh'm getteen really sick uv dis."

  180. [2012-08-01 15:08:33] * Bookwright groans. "Of course. I expected no less from our mysterious foe."
  181. [2012-08-01 15:09:05] * Kid nods. "Good. Move up, this bugger's gotta run outta tricks sometime!" She tries to find the place where the pony would have had to go and go there. This bugger's up to three shotshells he needs to swallow.
  182. [2012-08-01 15:10:34] * Bookwright shakes his head. "Tricks are infinite. I expect 'this bugger' to run out of explosives relatively soon. Can't say anything about tricks."
  183. [2012-08-01 15:11:12] <Kkat> 3The battle saddle is quite thuroughly shredded by the explosion.  The two laser rifles built into it have degraded to heavily used condition.
  184. [2012-08-01 15:11:24] * Bookwright moves over to one of the robots and examines it to determine its purpose.
  185. [2012-08-01 15:12:37] * Mitzi points to the shredded saddle; "Take dat for pieces. Maybe fix up da lasers Uh got easier wit dem."
  186. [2012-08-01 15:12:46] * Kid rolls her eyes. "Ya'll'd be surprised. Ya'll run outta tricks mighty quick when ya'll aren't thinkin' straight like this pony."
  187. [2012-08-01 15:12:55] * Noble_Heart snorts and offers the remains of the energy rifles to Mitzi. "Mayhaps you can use these for spare parts? We do not believe they will be useful for much else after that." She trots through the room searching for signs of exits. There had to be one somewhere.
  188. [2012-08-01 15:14:35] <Kkat> 3There is an exit along the far wall, near Kid and Get_Lost.  The door is closed.
  189. [2012-08-01 15:15:46] * Noble_Heart strides up towards the exit, extending her telekinesis to attempt to grasp the door and open it. Hopefuly without earth-shattering explosions for once. This pony couldn't have limitless explosives, could they?
  190. [2012-08-01 15:17:38] * Mitzi stays back this time to let the shielded pony take the blast
  191. [2012-08-01 15:19:12] <Kkat> 3Bookwright's examinations lead him to believe that the robotics lab was last engaged in an attempt to craft a security bot based on a revision of the little cleaner bot they found earlier.
  192. [2012-08-01 15:20:47] * Kid notably stays back when somepony tries to open the door.
  193. [2012-08-01 15:21:43] * Bookwright steps back. "Goodness gracious, this is an abomination of science!" He flips open his notebook and adds an entry, recording the apparent attempts by SOLARIS to do things with robotics that never should have been.
  194. [2012-08-01 15:24:04] * Noble_Heart snorts. "We would be amazed if anything these ponies did was not an abomination of some type." She shoved on the door again to try and get it open

  196. [2012-08-01 15:24:48] * Mitzi fills her pockets with some of the scraps of metal and electronics, just in case they might be useful for repairs later as well.
  197. [2012-08-01 15:26:52] * Bookwright looks around for a screwdriver set and a socket set. Surly a robotics lab would have the tools needed to open up robots, right?
  198. [2012-08-01 15:28:23] * Noble_Heart frowns as she wiggles the handle and shoves the door with her magic a few times. "The door is locked." Ah, the wonders of obvious answers. "We may be able to break it down. Do any of you ponies know how to pick locks? That would be most fortuitous and save Us the trouble of damaging Our weapon upon it."
  199. [2012-08-01 15:29:21] * Mitzi looks at the locked door and jiggles the handle, only to rip the whole thing out of the wall
  200. [2012-08-01 15:30:31] * Crescendo_ chuckles. "Who needs lockpicks when we have our friendly neighbourhood hellhound."
  201. [2012-08-01 15:31:30] * Mitzi holds the broken door up and looks at it; "Um... any ponee need dis?"
  202. [2012-08-01 15:31:32] * Noble_Heart smiles happily at that. "We are pleased that the Hellhounds have not lost their customary might. Our kind suffered many losses by their claws and weapons, and We are pleased that they have not dulled in Our abscence." She approaches the door and looks through it to the other side.
  203. [2012-08-01 15:31:49] * Mitzi is not sure if compliment
  204. [2012-08-01 15:35:00] * Mitzi casually tosses the door aside and loosk through the now wide open door frame for the way forward
  205. [2012-08-01 15:42:04] <Kkat> 3Bookwright finds a set of screwdrivers.  It's not particularly impressive, but at least he has all three types of screwdriver head.

  227. [2012-08-01 15:57:19] <Kkat> 3The center workbench had become a battle table, complete with a map of Grimfire Canyon.  The map has numerous markers on it.  
  228. [2012-08-01 15:58:16] <Kkat> 3There is a medical box in the corner and several ammo boxes on the table.  A large barding chest sits open and empty along one wall near several bunks.
  229. [2012-08-01 15:59:12] <Kkat> 3There is a terminal glowing on a desk in the far corner.  An ashtray next to it holds several old cigars.
  230. [2012-08-01 15:59:15] * Noble_Heart frowns as she spies the empty chest. "Perhaps Our enemy has retrieved their original barding?" Fighting an Enclave Pegasus in power armor with nothing but a golf club sounded like a terrible idea. And yet, she was an Alicorn, and she would if it came to that!
  231. [2012-08-01 15:59:27] * Noble_Heart heads towards the terminal to check it over first.
  232. [2012-08-01 16:00:09] * Kid did a room sweep. Enclave posters. Enclave flag. This pony was Enclave. She took the map and gave it a once over before picking up the pace.

  273. [2012-08-01 16:38:39] <Kkat> 3> New thorn in my side: Doctor Vernal.  He’s Solaris new golden stallion, so they’ve given him to us and put him in charge of Project Rebirth.  They seem to think he’s the one who will get the project back off the ground (so to speak).  The think he’s a fucking genius and have pretty much ordered that he be given whatever he wants.
  274. [2012-08-01 16:38:48] <Kkat> 3> Well, I’ve got news for the big manes at corporate: Vernal’s a moron. I swear, if I catch him writing down his password to the restricted section of the biolabs and sticking it under his terminal one more time, I’m going to go to Oversight Master Head Cheese about this and I’ll have Vernal’s flank for lunch!

  280. [2012-08-01 16:39:57] <Kkat> 3> I’ve tried to keep an open mind about this new head of R&E, no matter how much Vernal struts around the place like he has our mascot’s dick.   But I just had papers cross my desk that make me want to buck that idiot upside the head.  
  281. [2012-08-01 16:40:05] <Kkat> 3> He’s requisitioned a few dozen extremely hazardous plants, mostly from Everfree Forest, as part of some experiment for Project Rebirth.  Shit I really don’t want to be in the same building with.  Fortunately, this will all be sealed in the new Bio-Containment sub-facility.  
  282. [2012-08-01 16:40:19] <Kkat> 3> I’ve got to give Doctor Vernal a hoof for getting us that.  State-of-the-art Solaris tech.  An unbreachable inner containment, and then an outer shell that the specs say will maintain a 100% environmental seal for over a thousand years.
  283. [2012-08-01 16:40:29] <Kkat> 3> (Although, not to speak ill of the company, this is Solaris technology, so I fully expect the whole thing to fail catastrophically after about 200.  Not that it matters – either way, I’ll be long dead and it will be somepony else’s problem.)

  287. [2012-08-01 16:41:07] <Kkat> 3> We’re abandoning the facility.  Seeking safety in Bio-Containment was doomed from conception, but it’s not like Solaris had the foresight to build us an actual fallout shelter in case of a not-so-theoretical megaspell armageddon.
  288. [2012-08-01 16:41:21] <Kkat> 3> The outer containment, at least, held up to all of Solaris’ engineering claims.  Kept us perfectly protected from the outside down there – easily equal or superior to any of Stable-Tec’s pride-and-joy holes in the ground.  Probably more comfortable while it lasted.
  289. [2012-08-01 16:41:29] <Kkat> 3> Of course, it took less than thirty years for some idiot to break the “unbreachable” inner containment.  Specifically, around that scary specimen that idiot Vernal had used to graft extremely aggressive growth and dispersion to his precious PNG-Alpha.  That blue shit’s gone completely crazy.
  290. [2012-08-01 16:41:40] <Kkat> 3> We’ve evacuated Bio-Containment and sealed the outer shell back up.  Then blew most of the basement hallways for good measure.  Only way down to Bio-Containment now from the griffinchaser pad, and old Grey Ratchet from maintenance (or Mane-Tenants, as the kids are calling it nowadays), is up there disassembling the terminal.
  291. [2012-08-01 16:41:49] <Kkat> 3> Oh for the rolling of all the eyes!  Grey Ratchet just finished, and now he wants to know how the hell he’s supposed to get off the roof.  Didn’t take too kindly when I suggested jumping.  I told him to hold his ponies until we could find a ladder.  (I’m sure we’ll come across one sometime.)
  292. [2012-08-01 16:41:57] <Kkat> 3> At least that’s one worry out of the way.  I just hope those Solaris engineers were right about the outer shell holding forever.
