    The turbines need machinery replaced after the compys displaced some of the inner workings. In addition, both the power cable for the turbine and the building's electrical wiring are significantly chewed up. The computers are currently not not functional.

    It is now a little after 8 PM, you and the crew are starting to feel tired.

    You take a look at the damage the compys did with their nesting, and boy did they do a number on it. You have Emmanuel and Juan bring the spare parts out while you finish your inspection of the turbines. A lot of parts need replacing, but you get to it. The job is easy, but time-consuming. By the time you finish, it's around 10 PM. The turbine appears ready to go.

    The locks on the turbine can't be unlocked manually, they require the computer to tell it to unlock. Plus the water isn't flowing past the blades. The floodgates are down and the river is flowing over the dam.

    >> Emergency Chair Warmer 03/12/11(Sat)18:56 No.14220248

    Flood gate and turbine controls are both controlled by the computer. To get those working, you'll have to get power to the building. There's a backup gas generator tied to the building's power system, but at the moment it's only filled with water. After that, you'll have to replace the power cables that were chewed up by compys. Then, once that's done, you can get the turbine running. But you won't get any power flowing out of the complex until you replace the power cable that was mauled by the compys.

    And yeah, you know basic operating procedures for the power systems.

    Then, we lower the floodgates/activate the turbines. We'll sleep in the turbine room, and we'll sleep in shifts. Do we or the other two have a cellphone with an alarm clock function, or a watch with a timer? If so, we use that to set the shifts.

    I'm not sure the human body can really function like that. I mean, it takes me twenty minutes or so just to fall asleep after I lie down.

    Hold up, though.

    Here's what I think we should do:

    First, we barricade one door with two filing cabinets. Then, we barricade the second door with the third filing cabinet and a few crates. Use ONLY the MRE crates, not the rocket crate.

    Second, we pile the remaining crates in the turbine room, against the door leading into the office. We will sleep in the turbine room. With one door into the turbine room barricaded, we can watch the other while listening for anything trying to get in.

    Third, we switch on the computers, then start the turbines after lowering the floodgates. The park needs that power crucially, and we don't know if the gas generator has enough fuel to run all night.

    Then and only then do we settle down for sleep. We divide the night (until seven) into three shifts. Whoever has guard duty stays up with one of the tranq rifles. We will take first shift, because I'd rather rely on Emanuel or Juan AFTER they've had some sleep.

    Sound good to everybody?

    The only real concern I have is someone falling asleep while on watch. If that happens the watches afterwards become obsolete and everyone is already exhausted. We don't know if they can stay awake and still do all the tasks. What if while doing all this prep one member sleeps during all of this to take the first watch. Possibly getting in a good solid hour of down time to be in good shape for the first watch?

    Remember longer watch hours are dangerous.
    >> Emergency Chair Warmer 03/12/11(Sat)21:12 No.14221260

    So there are no more miscommunications:

    In the lobby, there is a door leading into the office and onto a catwalk above the turbine room. The catwalk has stairs that allow access to the turbines, it also has outside access to the top of the river dam The turbine room has a door leading into emergency storage as well as a door with hydraulics to separate the turbine blades from the rest of the machinery, so water doesn't flood the place.

    You navigate the computer easily and return the computer to its standard layout. From there, you raise the floodgates, which automatically lowers the hydraulic door, and unlock the turbine blades. The turbine starts spinning and the power management program says that the turbine is putting out an impressive amount of power.

    To keep yourself busy, you eat an MRE and take a look at the shotgun. There's some residue from use by the water tech, but it's in great condition, as near as you can tell.

    Your watch passes without incident, it's quite monotonous. It is now 4 AM.

    Well, we unload it, make sure the pump, trigger, and safety catch all seem to be working fine, then reload it and put the catch back on.

    Just try to familiarize ourselves with how it works some more.

    We're mechanics, it should be second nature to us, figuring out how stuff works.

    Everyone awake.

    Everyone get tranq rifles. Those are one-shot kills (well, knockouts) on a raptor, even if they take a bit of time to work; it might be able to keep charging through a shotgun blast.

    Expect the raptors to smell us and attempt to attack shortly. If they don't, it's because they're planning to ambush us when we leave. Be ready.

    We gesture for Juan to hand us one of the Tranq rifles.

    The crack in the crates is too small for the rifle barrel to fit into. You'd have to exit the fort to shoot the raptor.

    We probably shouldn't use the flamethrower or the shotgun with that big gas tank not too far from the door. Get out our dart pistol, make sure Juan and Emanuel have their rifles loaded and ready.

    shoot it with the tranq rifle and radio management for a DRT team. Theres no telling how many are out there and from the sounds of it were one of the only maintence teams still working. Also I think this is the seventh raptor we have seen, there were suposed to be only six. If my count is right that confirms that there are a unknown number of raptors roaming the island.

    >> Anonymous 03/13/11(Sun)00:03 No.14222981
    Does the radio have a volume control we could turn down, so we could ask Dispatch to send a DRT? We could whisper, and if we turn the volume down enough, their response won't be so loud as to attract the raptors.

    Also, earlier we discussed barricading ourselves in here and NOT barricading the other doors, so does that mean our door barricade includes the filing cabinets? Or is it just crates?
    >> Anonymous 03/13/11(Sun)00:04 No.14222997

    No, we're still deciding. Right now it's just make sure the three of us have our guns loaded and ready to go if the raptor notices us and tries anything.

    Get the radio, turn the volume down really low (but not off) and call Dispatch.

    Say: "Dispatch, this is Porter over at Hydroelectric. We have raptors up here, I don't know how many. I need a DRT up here to secure the building ASAP. The raptors are INSIDE the building, repeat the raptors are INSIDE. Send help at once. Over and out."

    Listen for a response. If they confirm, turn off the radio. If they don't confirm, still turn off the radio. Then check back on what the Raptor is doing.
