    DEVOURING THE FLESH OF THE TURKEY HAS GIVEN ME STRENGTH FOR...

    TG QUEST!!!

    Last Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/16994064/

    When last we left our away team, they had managed to drag Douglas Cartland out of his guilt far enough to nullify Silent Hill's hold on him. Having placed the Red Mask onto the statue of Data, the statue of Alessa cracked and began to glow, but nothing further happened. Now you must decide what action next to take. What horrors await you? What monsters lurk in Silent Hill? And what sort of terrible bum-related puns will infest THIS thread? FIND OUT! ON TG QUEST!

    Away Team inventory:
    White Chrism
    Book:Crimson Ceremony

    Heather: ME Hardsuit, M41A Pulse Rifle.
    Douglas: ME Hardsuit, M41A Pulse Rifle.
    Data: Phaser Rifle, Tricorder, Federation Medkit.
    Spike: Handgun, Hand Phaser, A280 Blaster Rifle.

    Your probe droid is still idling in the 'real' world.

    Aw yeah starting it up once again. Is the unknown door within the real world, if so the probe droid might be able to open it up for us. unless the key we obtained is what unlocks that door. but before opening the door we should make sure that everyone is ok, don't need to walk into a bossfight unprepared.

    Alright, Meta Quest!

    Okay, first have Data take a quick scan of Alessa's statue.
    Then, have both the team and the probe droid return to the antechamber and open the left, unknown door.

    Hmm... Heather is to continue providing moral support to Douglas.
    Actually, now that there's a lull in things trying to kill us, might as well ask her if she'd prefer to be called Heather or Cheryl.

    "Cheryl, actually," Heather says. "No reason to hide anymore."

    Data's tricorder reveals that strange energies are surrounding the statue and not only that, there appears to be a living human encased in the stone.

    The probe droid advances to the door in the real world and finds it unlocked. It opens to a long, straight hallway with a single vault-like door at the end.

    Well, can we get the person out?
    If it doesn't seem possible currently, then have the team go to the antechamber and open their version of the left door. If it's clear, then have both the team and the probe droid open their respective vault doors.
    >> Anonymous 11/25/11(Fri)19:31 No.17019722
    Can the probe droid scan the vault like thing? if it looks like something unpleasant is in it, we should wait to open it up.

    >>17019705
    Data tries to smash the cracked stone, but it doesn't seem to have any effect.

    Douglas goes to open the left door. It opens into another small antechamber instead of the long hallway. Carved stone pillars line the walls and twin doors are at the far wall, carved with images of coiling dragon. A large keyhole is at the center of this door, and a hole in the ceiling about two feet wide is in the ceiling.

    At this point I will begin referring to Heather as Cheryl.

    Alright so there's someone inside the statue, and the artifacts we're gathering are the requirements for the Crimson Ceremony.
    I'm betting the 'final boss' is in that statue, but if we attack it now, it will turn out not to be, because Silent Hill is wise to our games.
    Let's just play along for now.

    The probe droid's sensors cannot pierce the door, but on closer examination, he notes an intricate series of panels worked into the metal. There are 22 panels, each corresponding to the major arcana of a tarot deck; The Magician, The High Priestess, The Empress, The Emperor, The Hierophant, The Lovers, The Chariot, Strength, The Hermit, Wheel of Fortune, Justice, The Hanged Man, Death, Temperance, The Devil, The Tower, The Star, The Moon, The Sun, Judgement, The World, and The Fool.

    Data attempts to, but cannot reach the hole.

    Spike looks around the room, frowning.

    "Looks kind of like the audience rooms some of the higher ranking Syndicate members would spoil themselves with," Spike says. "I don't like it."
    >> Anonymous 11/25/11(Fri)19:45 No.17019859

    Looks like a standard deck to me.

    I wonder if we should be looking at cards to describe what stage they must go through here.
    Judgement, The Hanged Man, Death, and the Hermit? All focused of resolution, absolution, closure, and introspection.
    >> Anonymous 11/25/11(Fri)20:40 No.17020333
    Data:
    >VIII - Justice (La Justice): a woman, sometimes blindfolded, holding a sword and set of scales. A very traditional allegory of justice, objectivity, rationality, and analysis,

    Spike:
    >X - The Wheel of Fortune (La Roue de la Fortune): a six or eight-spoked wheel decorated with elemental symbols and surrounded by different animals wearing wealthy and beggarly clothes. A symbol of fate and varying luck, fortunes, and opportunities, and the cycle of life. What goes up will go down, what goes down will go up.

    Best match I could find for Cheryl:
    >II - The High Priestess (La Papesse): an old woman with a closed book, a symbol of hidden knowledge, wisdom, female mystery, and magic.

    Silent hill itself:
    XVIII - The Moon (La Lune): two dogs howling at the moon, around a pool with a crab in it, with two towers in the background. Associated with creativity, inspiration, dreams, madness, illusions, fear, fantasy, the subconscious, and trickery.

    Couldn't find an obvious match for Heather's Bum.

    Or, maybe we don't need to get it to them. Maybe the act of taking the key is enough to unlock the door in the Otherworld. Either that, or dropping the key into one of the holes leads to the hole in the ceiling in the Otherworld.

    Regardless, tell the away team to get ready for trouble, and have the probe droid go forward and grab the key. Have it avoid the holes where possible, and have its sensors scanning for possible hostiles.

    Data takes point, everyone walks slowly forward. Spike covers the rear. Heather in the middle, with Heather's bum behind her. Ensure that Heather's bum remains covered - with all the attention we've given Heather's bum thus far, it'd be a shame if anything were to lay hands on Heather's bum in this hallway.

    Move forward, be ready for tons of monsters.

    Data detects several 'living' things moving around in the fog, but not obstacles or traps. Some property of the fog is making their pinpointing impossible.

    As you tie up and prepare to advance into the fog, a high-pitched shriek is heard, and a skeletal bird, half made of metal flies out of the fog, alights on one of the pillars and caws at the group.

    Kevlar actually is very bad against puncture and slashing. Also, our kinetic shields work a lot like Dune Holtzmann shields, so a melee weapon could get through.

    Data is fairly competent at it, and of course has superhuman strength, speed, and durability.

    As your team enters the corridor, their range of vision swiftly fades, and the sounds of their footfalls become muted. A cold chill begins to seep into them as strange sounds echo around them. Hoots and murmurs seem to come from mouths just out of view, but when someone goes to investigate they find nothing. Soon the entrance is lost to the mist, but thanks to the rope, everyone stays together.

    Some of the voices become clearer through the mist.

    Open the door *very* slowly and be sure to jump back if anything tries to attack from behind there. Or if the door tries to attack or something. Peer into the room from the small gap when the door is being opened.

    The second round with the multiple Pyramid Heads was a lot better. Shooting them actually caused them to commit suicide faster, and you had a LOT more room to work with.

    Your team forms up and Spike slowly pushes on the door, which seems to open with a low moan.

    Behind the door is a large gothic style worship hall with an impossibly high ceiling. Light streams in from many large stained glass windows depicting a blonde woman weeping red tears alternating with coiled red dragons, and carrion birds.

    Behind row upon row of pews is an altar. There, a nun prays on her knees, her back turned toward you. In front of her is a tall humanoid in a longcoat, beneath which is a suit Its head is obscured by a streamlined mask, almost in the shape of a beak. It drags with it a very long katana, its blade easily five feet. A long scratch in the tiled floor of the cathedral leads from a door at the end of the hall to the altar, indicating how long the figure had been slowly advancing.

    As you enter, the figure raises its weapon and with deceptive ease, decapitates the praying nun. The body collapses as the head rolls over to Spike's feet. Spike's face goes taut with emotion as he looks at the beautiful face staring lifelessly up at him.

    I don't know about Spike's relationship with Julia, so someone who is Cowboyier and/or more Bebopish can resolve that one.
    Look for evil symbols on the floor; the idea is to lead Pyramid Vicious over them and apply bullets to him.

    Data, you know the drill. Scan the place for hidden evil symbols and mechanics, if you're not currently applying bullets to and/or dodging the Pyramid Vicious.
    Heather, try not to get yourself anywhere near the decapitating decapitator of decapitatage. If possible, just support Spike and apply some pressure to Vicous so Vicious can't get easymode cheap shots on Spike.

    As I recall, it was implied in the series that Spike and Vicious were friends back in Spike's Syndicate days. But something happened involving Julia, and things went to shit, forcing Spike to flee (and get a cybernetic eye), and creating a lot of bad blood between Vicious.

    It could be Spike feeling guilt or regret over how things turned out with Vicious and Julia.

    Given the size of the cathedral, Cheryl and Data should be able to run and stay ahead of Vicious. I don't know about Doug, though. It's been years since he left the police. He might not be up to doing a lot of running.

    Vicious' sudden speedy charges catches Spike a little off guard and he is unable to completely get out of the way in time. The katana blade catches the edge of his shoulder as he jumps away, opening up a shallow cut. Cheryl and Doug open fire, but the bursts go wide, wildly aimed as they put distance between them and the monster with the sword.

Blood flows freely as Spike screams in pain, the monster suddenly driving its beak-like mask into Spike's chest over and over again, "pecking" at him to open a small wound. Each peck that follows the first makes the initial wound deeper and deeper...

    The mist flooding the room and the lack of light is making things difficult to see, though it is not yet as bad as the corridor that led here.

    Spike stop as he steps over the arm symbol, pivoting on his heel to fire a few rounds at Corvus Vicious, who slowly gets up and begins to walk toward him. Spike fires a full magazine, then reloads, the bullets not affecting Corvus in the least. Finally the monster breaks into a lightning-fast charge as he did before, and Spike jumps out of the way.

    The moment Corvus Vicious steps onto the engraving, he suddenly stops, dropping to a knee and convulsing as the symbol glows green.

    Cheryl opens fire, fully automatic, but this just makes most of her shots go wide, unused as she is to assault weapons. Douglas does better, manage to strike the monster with a few well placed bursts. Unfortunately, Data miscalculates and his phaser beam strikes a pew instead, lighting it on fire. Spike's few shots go wide as he runs for the next symbol.

    Corvus Vicious finally pulls himself upward with a shrill, inhuman screech, and begins to move towards Spike once more.

    Corvus Vicious charges even faster this time, striking Spike before he can get into position with the edge of his long-katana. A long gash is opened on Spike's chest and he is forced back, off his feet as Corvus Vicious raises his huge blade for an overhead blow...

    The blade comes down squarely on Spike's left arm, cleaving it to the bone and crippling the limb. Spike howls in anguish as the arm goes limp, useless at his side. Gunfire suddenly rakes the back of Corvus Vicious as Douglas and Cheryl open fire.

    "Get off him you bird-brained freak!" Cheryl shouts.

    The manuever manages to get the monster off Spike, but fails to get him over the circle. Vicious grabs Data, pecks him viciously, and then hurls him into a nearby pew, which splinters into shards of wood.

    With almost inhuman endurance, Spike gets to his feet and attempts to move around Corvus Vicious, drawing his hand-phaser with his good arm while his left sags at his side, leaking blood all over the floor.

    Spike is just over the next symbol, the dog, as Corvus Head breaks free from his paralysis with another inhuman shriek, this time almost more like a caw. He breaks into a charge immediately, barely missing Spike as he rolls out of the way. Douglas suddenly lowers his rifle, as if bracing it.

    A deafening explosion tears up the floor near Corvus Head as Doug fires the M41A's grenade launcher at the monster. The explosion knocks the monster off his feet and pushes him into the next symbol, which lights up in brown. Corvus Head's shrieks progressively get more agonized this time as Data, Heather, and Douglas fire, all hitting home. Another explosion tears up the area as Heather fires her own grenade, the explosive actually tearing off one of Corvus Head's limbs. Then the effect ends and the monster is loose again, Spike having used this time to get far, far away from all the explosions.

    Corvus head, suddenly stops, turns, and THROWS its massive katana through the air like a javelin. The weapon catches Spike in the back, pinning him to the ground just short of his goal. Corvus Head shambles over to his prey as fast as he can, black blood sickly oozing from the open and jagged stump that is all that remains of his left arm. The monster ignores the gunfire directed at him by the other members of the team as he moves towards Spike, who lies still. Finally he reaches its quarry and pulls his sword free with one arm, leaning down to run it through Spike...

    ...and then suddenly Spike rolls onto his back and kicks up with his foot while grabbing Corvus Head's shoulders, throwing him over himself and into the circle, which shines with an orange light. Spike rolls over again, draws his phaser and fires, point blank into the monster. The thing gives out a long, pained groan, falling still as thousands of tiny smiling faces boil out from the final symbol and begin devouring the monster, leaving nothing behind save the long katana as they consume the final demon of Spike Spiegal.

    Spike collapses with a long sigh, pulling himself up against the half-destroyed altar as the fire spreads to half the hall behind him. He shakily pulls out a cigarette, puts it in his mouth and then points at the spot where Corvus Head died, his thumb upright.

    "Bang."

    Well, Data, Heather, and Douglas (who is apparently not a Bum) can go on through it.
    Where is that Health Drink line from? I don't recognise it, but it sounds humorous.

    Alright, I suppose have Data cautiously open the door and see what's in the room?

    Okay, let's have Cheryl and Data check out the door that Corvus Head came through, while Doug covers their back.
    Is Spike able to at least move on his own?
    We need to find a secure place we he can be until we're ready to leave.

    Let Spike rest if we can get him to.

    Once we're ready to move, let's see about that rear door.

    In the meantime, >>17022923
    has a good point, check out that altar. Examine the 'nun' if still present as well, though try not to be rude with it.

    It's 2:30am and we're autosaging. Let's check out the room behind Corvus. The Altar, Confession booths, and where the Nun was standing are good places to check.
    ESPECIALLY the Confession booths. There's always something awesome hidden in those, if the curtains to enter them aren't locked.

    Add: Data should also tricorder those places to look for hidden switches or compartments. Because why not? Might be somethin' useful.

    Yeah since we're autosaging this is a good place to stop, I think. We'll open that room in the back in the next TG QUEST! (which will be Sunday at 7 PM.)

    Hope everyone had fun tonight.
