    It's 8 AM and you're currently in the Maintenance Building.

    Okay, before we get going, could we summarized the events so far?
    >> Anonymous 02/27/11(Sun)12:14 No.14063091

    Here's what I've got so far:

    Early on the first day, we were tasked with repairing the windmills. We did so with the help of our buddy Perkins, but the job was a bit half-assed. We found signs that the park was starting to break down, and that people may have been killed.

    Outside the turbine, we were attacked by a dilophosaur, but managed to subdue it.

    On our way to Maintenance HQ to pick up equipment (we were tasked with investigating issues at the desalinization plant) we hit a dinosaur. Perkins was killed, and a Herrerasaurus came by and ate Perkins body and scared us off. We tried contacting Dispatch, but they seemed to care more about the dead dino then our predicament, or the death of Perkins. Harsh words were said.

    We went by foot to the Maintainance HQ, where we barricaded ourselves in the garage. We were woken up by a violent storm and went upstairs to investigate.

    We found the dead Maintainance chief, killed in his sleep by compys. On the computer, we used his authorization to send out repair orders for the dilophosaur fences, and say that a tornado was going to wipe out the fences for the T-Rex and raptor paddocks. We contacted Management to let them know the Chief of Maintenance was dead, and the fences were in danger. They claimed everything was dealt with, and said they'd send a new maintenance guy to replace the Chief.

    We went back down to the garage to wait out the night. In the morning, we found the guy they sent dead on the doorstep. Evidently they didn't give him a key or something, and he was killed by a dino. We got back on the computer, found e-mails that the Chief might be a corporate saboteur, and that while power is up the T-Rex and Raptor fences ARE down.
    >> Anonymous 02/27/11(Sun)12:16 No.14063113

    "Roger. Be advised, there is likely ate least one large predatory dinosaur still in the area."

    What was the last thing we said to Dispatch before this?
    >> Anonymous 02/27/11(Sun)12:21 No.14063156
    So just to clear this up for me.

    The park is falling because of incompetence or is it corporate spies wrecking shit?

    or both?
    We should tell dispatch about the fences for the wrex and raptors, maybe suggest a total park lockdown?
    >> Anonymous 02/27/11(Sun)12:25 No.14063207

    We don't know precisely what's causing it all. We couldn't find evidence in the emails of what Chief Ryan might have actually DONE to cause the problems with the park, just that he may have done SOMETHING.

    Dispatch seems more interested in profit then in human lives. I don't think they're precisely incompetent, but just extremely stressed by everything going wrong at once.

    the tornado has probably caused the most problems.

    We mentioned told them those fences were likely to be breached last night. They claimed the situation was well in hand. What's more, Dispatch has been very hostile in past communications. After Perkins' death, we yelled at them, and they yelled at us. They probably won't take advice from us on how to run the park very well.

    Take this opportunity to load up the Explorer with tools and anything we need (lots of duct tape!), and if there's a weapons locker, some weapons.
    That should take long enough for the security team to arrive, giving us an excuse to stay here where it's safe, and we can safely open the garage door.

    We should take the time to scavenge any useful materials from the Maintenance Shed and HQ before we head out. Who knows when we'll be back? Maybe a backpack to hold tools we may need at the desalination plant, or any simple implements we may have use for but don't have currently.

    Also, food would be good. It's been a while since we last ate and we don't want to have little energy when we most need it.

    Let's plot out a path to the desalination plant, then.

    How long would the outer service road take to reach the plant? Perhaps this path is safest, as we don't drive adjacent to any breached walls.

    Check the gas in the vehicle too, I suppose?
    >> Anonymous 02/27/11(Sun)13:53 No.14064040
    I think so. We can't go around being the hero without knowing more about what's going on.
    >> Anonymous 02/27/11(Sun)13:56 No.14064058

    I agree on the backpack. Let's find one, and do a general search of the Maintenance building. We should keep an eye out for a weapon and a first aid kit. At the very least, we should grab something hard and metal that would make a good club. The best we've got is a wrench, at the moment. We can't take everything, and we probably shouldn't anyway; other maintenance teams may come here, and they may need the tools available more than we do.

    As for food, let's keep an eye out for a break room or a vending machine. If we can't find that, we'll swing by the Employee Bungalows, see if we can't find something there to eat on the road. The tornado went through the main raptor enclosure, not the pens near the Bungalows. Plus, there should be lots of people there. It's probably relatively safe.

    Now, given that the Rex and Raptor enclosures are open, I say we keep as far away from those as possible. Let's go North, along the service road, past the Bungalows, and then looping around the northern part of the island, past the hydroelectric damn. It's a longer route, but it's probably safer.
    >> Emergency Chair Warmer 02/27/11(Sun)13:58 No.14064075

    The jeeps have full tanks. The Explorer's battery is half charged.


    You scavenge around for supplies, finding a recharging cord for the flashlight and talkie batteries, along with two more batteries. There is a weapons locker present, but it's locked and the HM's card won't open it.

    There's a knocking at the door, and you can hear a muffled voice shouting.

    I agree we should take the longer, northern route as it's probably safer.

    However, I must point out that there are 2 raptor pens: the old one near the T-Rex pen, and the new one located near the employee barracks. Either way, we're gonna go past raptors.
    >> Emergency Chair Warmer 02/27/11(Sun)14:17 No.14064241
    You open the door and 4 men rush in. They're outfitted with what appears to be a form of chain mail, and carrying rifles. Though one of the crew is lugging around what appears to be a rocket launcher.

    "Thanks, we'll take it from here."

    They immediately make themselves at home, with some of them hitting the hay, while one of them goes over to the computer and swipes his card on it, and gets to work. One of them goes over to the weapons locker and unlocks it. He rummages around in it before taking out what appears to be a crossbow with a spool of cable and a large box attached.
    >> Anonymous 02/27/11(Sun)14:18 No.14064243

    Right, but the tornado only went through the MAIN raptor enclosure, as well as the Rex enclosure.

    In theory, the newer, smaller raptor pen should still have intact, functioning fences. Plus, it can't hold as many raptors anyway, so even if they are out it shouldn't be as many.

    Also, let's ask the security team what things are like out there before we leave. they might be a little more loose-lipped then Dispatch.

    For the time being, let's continue with this plan: >>14064058

    Head to the bungalows, get some food, charge the car, head to the desalinization plant along the northern service road.

    Hell, it doesn't matter if it takes us a little longer to get there. I have a hard time believing that some rusty water is higher priority to HQ then a dino breakout.

    Two more questions for the security guys, though. A) Can we get a weapon from that cabinet of they opened, since we lost our rifle when that herrerasaur showed up and B) can they confirm that the secondary raptor pens near the bungalows are still secure?

    You get into the Explorer and leave, almost crashing into a Jeep parked outside. The trip is quick and without incident.

    Then go down to the garage and see if there's a fully charged Explorer we can switch over to, after beginning to charge the one we're using.

    You pull out of the motor pool and head out to the northern service road. Passing the golf course, you see a herd of Parasaurolophus being rounded up by DRTs. Continuing on, you follow the coastline. Many trees were damaged in the storm last night, but luckily none of them block the road.

    About a quarter of the way onto the road, you hear the snapping of trees. You look to the side and see a dilo pushing it's way out of the trees, frill extended.

    I vote second. There's no need to seriously speed up, especially when that could be dangerous if the dilo lunges out onto the road.

    As is, the car is bigger then he is. It might intimidate him. Plus, he can't spit through the windows. We keep going, a little faster, windows up, try to drive by. If it looks like he's going for us, slow down, but keep going.

    A wad of spit hits the passenger window, but you remain unfazed and continue driving, while picking up speed. The dilo roars and gives chase, but you easily lose outpace it and leave it behind.

    You've reached the lake just south of the coast when you find another dinosaur. A Brachiosaur that managed to get all the way out here. It's currently lying right in the middle of the road.

    Is the desalinization plant manned? Is there a head office or a staff we can check in at?

    What would be the logical first place to check, given our mechanical knowledge of the park?
    >> Emergency Chair Warmer 02/27/11(Sun)19:49 No.14068175

    The de-sal plant usually has a couple of people manning it at any one time. They're usually at the front office monitoring things.

    The obvious place to check would be the filters.

    A bunch of computers sit on the desks. The ones pointing towards the entrance display security cam footage. The ones pointing into the building display technical readouts.

    >> Emergency Chair Warmer 02/27/11(Sun)20:49 No.14069071

    You pull up the archives and watch. The POV is from the lobby looking into the main office. Most of the day has the workers just sitting around looking at computer screens. Raptors enter the picture, probably through the main doors. Then one of them looks up and screams. The other turns around and also screams (there's no audio, you can only tell based on their mouths). The first one rushes off camera and comes back with two crossbows. The raptors attempt to open the door, but can't for some reason. They ram themselves into it repeatedly, eventually buckling the door. The head raptor suddenly gets all twitchy and starts smoking. You can see the two scientists grab some black sticks and book it through the inner door as the raptor convulses. The two other ones chase the other two. Then they're all off camera, except the smoking corpse.

    The locker in the corner of the room has a box of shotgun shells, 12g solid slug and 3 batteries, same kind as the ones you're carrying.

    Okay.Then we go shut the front entrance to the plant, the one we came it. Don't want any more raptors getting in. Lock it for now.

    Next, can we even figure out how to work this damn crossbow?
    >> Emergency Chair Warmer 02/27/11(Sun)22:13 No.14070231

    You lock the front door and return to the office. You are able to find an instruction manual for the crossbow in the locker.

    It's simple.

    - Select setting
    - Aim
    - Fire.
    - Collect arrow
    - Respool wire
    - Repeat

    rolling for dual-wielding the crossbows and shooting them accurately while diving to the side.

    Dude, if we miss against a raptor, we are NOT getting off a second shot.

    Actually, that leads naturally to my next question. Let's practice real quick. How long does it take us to LOAD the crossbow?

    I mean, if we fire and miss, will we even have time to load the bow again before the raptor is on us?
    >> Anonymous 02/27/11(Sun)22:18 No.14070294
    Wait, how many darts can we load into the air pistol at a time?

    Probably not. Fairly small room, raptor has a long stride and decent acceleration. Crossbows take at minimum, a few seconds to reload. As this is a tethered crossbow, bolt retrieval, or fitting a new battery is required, both of which add to the time (and the first would be impossible with a charging raptor). Then add several more seconds to shoulder, aim, and fire the weapon....and you've been gutted.

    There are NO second shots.

    Okay, thought. An adult raptor is six feet tall. An adult dilophosaur is TEN feet tall.

    We successfully tranqed a dilo with these darts before. Thus, logically, we should be able to tranq a raptor with one as well.

    I say we shoot the crossbow at the raptor from the doorway of the cargo area. If we miss, then we unload the full clip of darts at him--no need to reload. As soon as we shoot the last dart, we slam the door to the cargo area.

    if we can make a makeshift torch we might be able to save on ammo.

    Fire scares everything, every single living animal is afraid of it regardless of intelligence. If we can tear up a spare jacket and tie it to a metal rod, or even find a road flare in an emergency kit, it's going to go a long way towards getting a raptor to move in the opposite direction.

    Also, if we turn on the sprinkler system it might drive them out of the building. Unless we are going by hollywood rules where animals like standing around being soaking wet. If it floods the building that only works to our advantage as it would slow down anything charging us as it would have to slog through water and whatnot.

    Just a couple thoughts. I'm glad to see this quest thread is remaining interesting. Good Job ECW

    All the more reason to do it. Both stun and kill will put it out of commission, one permanently, the other for long enough for us to tranque. Both cases, we only have one shot. So lets not do the one that'll put us in even worse graces with the powers that be.
    >> Emergency Chair Warmer 02/27/11(Sun)22:31 No.14070458
    So that's where those good rolls were going.

    You recall hearing the max limit for a raptor jump is around 20 ft.

    Alright. You exit into the water treatment area. As you're descending the stairs, you notice a black splotch in the tank next to the one with the bodies in it. As you get nearer to Cargo Bay you hear sounds of roaring and pounding. You go through the door and see that the raptor has managed to put quite a dent in the door, making one corner of it peel inwards. You can hear the screams of the man inside.

    The crossbow bolt catches him in the leg. The raptor keels over and starts twitching. The shot from your pistol misses.
