IC: Wilbur Flood - Ocean
This wasn't going as well as he expected, Flood reflected as he brought his harpoon around to block the beast. His other hand scrabbled to holster his weapon so he could use both hands to push the beast back; he'd heard the thrum of Furno's turbines and felt no impact on the spear, so he'd guessed the other beast wasn't an immediate problem.
GM NPC JAW BEASTS (6 - NEAR FLOOD) & FURNO
Furno's turbine shredded a portion of the beast behind him, filling the area behind him in a cloud of red. He turned to blast another beast heading for him, only for another beast to bite him on the arm.
Meanwhile, the beast who was trying to bite Flood was knocked off course by the harpoon. The beast got out of Furno's grip in all of this and tried to slash at Flood, while the last one out of the six swam past Flood's back, swing its arm to try to knock him over in the water.
OOC: I think that by "tell him to walk", Zib meant "tell him to walk back to the city himself because you're busy", but I have absolutely no qualms with following Vex into the spooky monster caves.
OOC: Don't look at me - I'm not going to eat you alive after the mission.
GM IC MARCUS VEX & ??? - TUNNELS
About 400 yards into the tunnel, the main tunnel was blocked by a huge hexagonal block, covered with some very odd and ancient looking designs. It appeared that there had been a war here between some robotic creatures with strange tablet-like communication devices and a group of odd looking primitives with spears and axes.
Splattered over this were the words "DANGEROUS: BEAST AREA" and "TURN BACK" in red paint. It looked like the paint had been applied recently.
There where tunnels to the left and right of the rock blocking the way, although most looked small and narrow in nature, about just wide enough for a Hero to walk single file.
GM NPC TUNNELER BEAST
The uninjured Tunneler Beast from the last fight had followed the two beings down the tunnel, and it's illumination lamp was how Marcus and fake Makuro could see the designs on the wall.
IC Shade - Landing Site:
Now that another hero (Drift) had come out of the blue and started helping the horse-monster-thing and it's friend, Shade deactivated his silence field to suggest in a whisper that Mr. Makuro begin moving towards the hotel.
GM NPC MR. MAKURO
Mr. Makuro decided to response by acting, heading away from the commotion and toward the relative safety of the hotel. Although, he definitely did not feel safe here, and stuck close to Nex and where he thought Shade was.
GM NPC MEDICAL CIVILIANS (NEAR ALEX DRIFT)
A civillian medical team drove up in response to Alex Drift's call, pushing the Hero away and gently loading the being onto a stretcher. "He's organic." one of him said. "Call in Dr. Vanto, this is her specialty."
The beast above looked on hopefully, following his master toward the ambulance. It looked at Drift, as if confused, before turning back to its friend.
GM IC CAPTOR
Captor would see two sets of glass doors on the other side of the hangar bay, and two sets of stairs heading up to two steel doors on either side of the glass. These steel doors had deadbolts, which suggested that they could be locked.
However, those doors were now in full view of Traferous, Crowley, and Dr. Lie at the present moment, and passing through the doors, even cloaked, would likely be noticed.
There didn't seem to be many consoles in the area. However, a few yards away from the hangar bay doors was a screen that recorded the pressurization of the chamber and the status of the outside force fields, and there were emergency bay door controls. They required several passwords to access.
There was no sign of a map.
GM IC NIMIUS
Nimus would find that his attempt to anchor himself to the bottom of the ship would fail due to the forcefield around the ship pushing him away. Worse, the ship above him...vanished.
GM IC FRAVI
An computer blipped. "Mechna's lordly mother!" Fravi exclaimed, as an anti-collision system warning flashed and a trajectory of the "asteroid" appeared on the screen. "That's no asteroid. Bloody Jimmie Hendrix!" She hit the cloaking system button hard, and grabbed the weapons controls.
By the nature of Traferous' craft, there wasn't quite so many weapons on the bottom of the ship. However, Traferous had thought to install a swivel cannon or five. Fravi spun the dial, aiming and firing photon laser beam at the asteroid. If it really was a space rock, the blast would be enough to crack it in half. If it was a ship, it would likely bounce off the ship's shields. Either way, they would know what was going on.
OOC: Fravi's cloak will withdraw a little for the weapon to fire, due to the laws of physics regarding light. So Nimus will be able to see the cannon coming toward him before it fires.
GM IC TRAFEROUS
Traferous heard Fravi's voice over the comms. "On my way," he said, handing Adam West to Dr. Lie and striding smoothly across the hangar bay floor.
He did not care if Crowley followed him.
GM IC DR. LIE
"I'm going to go take the pet back to his cell," Dr. Lie said. "You can follow the big guy if you like - he won't mind - or I'll be happy to show you around once this security risk is contained. Or you can just wander around on your own. Just don't walk into an airlock and kill yourself. The boss hates accidents and suicides, especially messy ones."
