Welcome back to Desert Island Maid Quest.When we last left off our mission to find Bunny was sidetracked by a crashed chunk of space hulk landing in the bay. We upgraded our rifle to an energy weapon and set off into the water with Yuriko. What awaits inside...Previous Threads1-9: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27186819/ 10: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27221405/ 11: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27285036/Char Sheets:http://imgur.com/GUYk3IS,CxpQXUD,IJoUzH0,0y3q54G,9fIqjjI,OTOJNMr
When we last left off...You give Yuriko a nod. She quickly removes the beam emitter from the flashlight housing and affixes the assembly to the underside of the SAR using some form of super sciencey, future tech, unfathomable adhesive material (its duct-tape) and connects the trigger wires to the SAR's trigger. You laugh, wondering how much damage a stupid flashlight can do. You aim it out the window and point it at the cliff-face 50 feet away. You pull the trigger and watch a thin red beam erupt from the SAR and blow a fist wide, foot deep hole into the rock. Okay maybe it wasn't just a stupid flashlight. Yuriko and you quickly throw on your diving gear and charge into the rough waves. The shockwave from the crash has made it to the shore resulting in 5 foot swells. Tracy and Evelin hurry about making stretchers for any wounded you bring back. The waves buffet you as you trudge into the water, but their force smooths out as you kick down beneath the waves and make your way to the sunken space hulk.
The bay is fairly shallow, no more than 10-15 meters deep. The water is slightly cloudy from the sediment kicked up by the crashing ship, but the currents are quickly clearing it out to sea. You kick along, Yuriko in tow making your way to the hulk.
You keep swimming. The ship seemed closer from the shore, but you aren't too deep. Plenty of air left and still in no-deco. A coral wall looms in front of you, the local seabed displaced by the ship. A faint blue glow suffuses from the rock ahead. You motion to Yuriko to head in. She pause, taps a little display on her wrist and nods her head. Its safe so far.
You glide through the rock into a large open plain. A reef shark slides into view, disturbed by the impact to its home. It swims close enough to take a brief taste of your scent and quickly takes off after finding you too interesting to be safe. The ship lies in the opposite direction and the two of you head towards the wreck.
The two of you find the ship, at least what is left of it. It looks like a rather large section of a ship that had been torn free and cast into the depths of the ocean. All exposed compartments have been flooded and the hulk as come to rest on the ocean floor. An exposed hatch lies near the bottom, about 25m deep. You and Yuriko slowly descend down to the glowing hatch. A flickering shield bubble is keeping the sea water out of the exposed door. You reach your hand in and feel air. not wanting to miss an opportunity the two of you slip inside. Yuriko waves her wrist about, a small screen projecting about it. The bulkhead behind you seals off the ocean. You are inside.
Yuriko motions to her wrist. A map of exposed areas is projected in front of you. Little warnings appear and disappear. Yuriko says she can't detect what it is but to be careful. You appear to be in the access corridor for an escape pod.Where to Chosen One?
>>27334960Head into mess hall, I suppose, but we should first establish with Yuriko our objectives. A short of mission briefing.1. Locate and rescue any and all survivors.2. Ensure that whatever hostiles are aboard this ship do not reach shore.3. If we are supremely lucky that this ship is advanced enough and relatively undamaged, recover whatever parts Yuriko might need to rebuild her own ship.If Yuriko wishes to add anything, she may. She's obviously more knowledgeable in this area.
Rolled 20, 14 = 34>>27334960Check the access control
>>27335109You let Yuriko continue her analysis on the pod corridor electronics, though she doesn't think there is anything more she can determine. A pod was launched before impact, but the door malfunctioned. You have since repaired it. You take a moment to glance out the window. A lobster waves to you.>>27335104You break down the game plan with Yuriko. She agrees. The tech shes seen so far is on par with her own, though she thinks the ship is heavily damaged, there are anomalous energy readings everywhere. She cautions you to tread carefully.
>>27335219Nowhere to go but mess hall. Carefully.
You drudge up the corridor into the cafeteria. The sight is gristly. All the walls are rusted, the food wet and rotten. Three corpses sit around the table. They appear to be soldiers based on their uniform and their side arms. An empty bottle lays on the table, cigar ash is piled in the lap of one soldier. Two are dead from a self inflicted gunshot wound. The other looks unharmed. Yuriko scans them. "Old age" she says puzzled. You hear a low groan and some ominous thuds from elsewhere in the ship. There doesn't appear to be anything in this room other than corpses. Every console looks like rusted out a long time ago. What now?
Rolled 6>>27335326"Are you saying this ship is an old derelict?"Roll for perception check on recent activity. Footprints in the old blood stains, places without dust, etc.
>>27335375Guess that's a no.
>>27335390This room looks like the corridor before it but everything is rusted to hell. Almost as if someone left this room out in the rain, for a few decades. Yuriko scans around but can offer nothing more.
Well then, I'd say Command Hub is where I'd go next, so as head to medbay. Barracks smells like an enemy room. Touch no buttons, though, unless Yuriko knows what they do.
>>27335479>>27335479You don't want to stick around in this room much longer than you already have. You head north, taking some effort to wrench open the long rusted hatch. The corridor is in much better shape than the mess hall. The bulkheads look like they came right off the assembly line this morning, though the lights are out. The darkened hall is pierced by the light streaming out from command center, the open hatchway giving you a view into command. You both head towards the room, the bright light partially blinding you. You step into command, only to step back into the messhall from the escape pod door. What the hell?
>>27335654Try it again, except this time one of us go thru. Lets see if the other can see if something is happening when the other tries to pass thru
>>27335793You tell Yuriko to watch you as you try to navigate the hallway. Again you walk towards the command deck and try to shield your eyes from the harsh light. You make it to the threshold and glance back, Yuriko waves from the cafeteria. Your foot crosses the threshold and a subtle flash causes you to blink for but a moment. Your foot lands, stepping instead into the mess hall behind Yuriko. She jumps and turns to you. "You make it in then disappear! Strange."Looks like some strange shit is going on.What do you do?
>>27335893Well, see if we can't throw something through it. Perhaps it only responds to organics or living things. If it still does the teleport, then we'll just move to the barracks
>>27335958Frustrated you grab the bottle off of the table and toss it into the hallway. The bottle sails into the open door way and promptly smacks you in the back of the head. Seems like that hallway is one way only. You resolve to enter into the barracks. The hatch opens with groaning hiss, opening to another pristine hallway. You and Yuriko slowly lurk forward into the barracks. The barracks hatch opens to rows of bunks. The beds are in disarray, blankets and pillows are scattered on the floor. You stoop to look under one of the books as a small coffee cup crashes into the wall above you. A small orb of crackling fire drifts about the room menacingly.Several items, a small pda, a bolt, two books and a pillow begin to levitate around you and Yuriko.You were ready for an attack.The move is yours
>>27336190Go back to back with Yuriko. Slowly move ever so carefully over to the armory. As you do so, talk aloud and see if you can get a response if something is causing the items to float around you.
>>27336190Fire a few shots to get its attention then dive behind a bunk. Yuriko needs to freeze that thing.
Rolled 83, 47, 52, 35, 77, 55, 75 = 424You calmly tell Yuriko to get back to back with you. She obliges, her shoulder cannon starting to hum. Water condenses on its surface as it cools down. You aren't sure what it's intention is but you want to get out of there and into the armory. The light almost seems to ignore you, but a paint can you didn't see does. The can flies at your head!Roll to dodge. I'll take the first 5 1d100s.
>>27336685You deftly duck out of the way, the can exploding against the wall in splash of blue. The other objects in the room are still floating but you think you have time to act?What do you do?
>>27336701"Alright... is there anyone other than us in here?" Keep eyes on the objects, move closer to armory
>>27336722I think it's just an automated trap. If anyone is alive on this ship, they're probably in medbay, locked in a cryo tube.But armory is fine. There's stuff in there.
Rolled 28, 7, 22, 12, 36, 9, 49 = 163>>27336722The ball of fire continues to crackle and spark about the room. Some objects drop to the floor while others lift up as you move closer to the armory. An empty can is flung towards you as you both shuffle towards the door.Dodge again! First 5 1d100s to see if misses!
>>2733677249 is the one to beat.
Rolled 9>>27336772Wow. 7 dice and not 1 over 50
Rolled 64>>27336772Fuckin' ghosts man. "By the light of the emperor, begone foul spirit!"
>>27336838The can is easily dodged. You scream at the spirit. The spirit ignores you. The floating objects do not relent in their floating. You are close to the door control to the armory, but the little ball of flame drifts close to you every time you try to grasp it. Yuriko's cannon is fully charged and the SAR is fireable at will.Fight or flee?
>>27336910Yoriko shoots at it while we get the door open
>>27336910Shoot the laser at the ball of fire. We can flee still if the ball doesn't do shit.
>>27336910Tell Yuriko to snipe the flame ball. There's no point in not fighting it. We'll just have to come back this way, as armory is a dead end.
Rolled 50, 81, 31, 73, 46, 39, 13 = 333>>27336939>>27336947>>27336948You tell Yuriko to shoot that fucking orb while you go for the door control. Yuriko kneels down to get a bead on the orb. First 3 1d100s (skill shot). Number to beat is above.
Rolled 38>>27336996Ouch, tough shot is tough
Rolled 67>>27336996going to be tough
Rolled 37>>27336996Guess it's up to me!
>>27337121We COULD spend 3XP for some rerolls.
Rolled 16>>27336996Spend 3XP for 1 Reroll.
Any more rerolls?
>>27337273Nah. Seems Ice can't beat fire this round
Is Yuriko wearing her glasses?
>>27337273Okay then. 6XP spent.Yuriko, despite almost sticking the barrel around the floating ball, her shots miss. In frustration she pumps out a few more shots. The ceiling is almost completely covered in ice almost an inch thick. The little ball of fire is unfazed and continues to drift menacingly around. The door behind you opens with a hiss. The two of you continue to stare at the floating trash when a hand grabs you from behind and drags you both into the armory."Come in" a muffled voice says. You look back and see a blonde woman, decked head to toe in armor and weapons. "Don't just stand there." Yuriko is already tumbling backwards into the armory. Her hand grabs your collar and yanks you in just as the bulkhead slams shut. Several loud bangs resound off the door. The operator stands infront of you, a pristine Vintorez muzzle presses against your head. The gas mask around her face muffles her breathing. A soft erratic clicking noise is coming from her belt. "Who are you?" Well, who are you Chosen one?
>>27337447Wasn't the cropped one dammit. Well at least you know what kinda shit is going on now.
>>27337447"My name is Anon. We were outside our home when we heard and saw this ship here fall from the sky and crashed into the sea. We came to investigate in case there were any survivors of the crash...which seems to be the case with you here.Are there any other survivors? We want to help them too if there are any."
>>27337447>best girl has finally arrived"Simply put, we're the rescue party. I'm Anon and this is Mrs. Yuriko. We are, the the three of us, all stranded on an island ruled by an extremely malignant enemy, who can be better explained later."
>>27337537>>27337535"Simply put, we're the rescue party. I'm Anon and this is Mrs. Yuriko. We are, the the three of us, all stranded on an island ruled by an extremely malignant enemy, who can be better explained later.. We were outside our home when we heard and saw this ship here fall from the sky and crashed into the sea. We came to investigate in case there were any survivors of the crash...which seems to be the case with you here."Are there any other survivors? We want to help them too if there are any."Her eyes relax, but her trigger finger doesn't. "Peezdets' Sooka. You say island. Not is Yantar. Iebana shlooha anomaly. I get chased in, didn't see and end up in loud shitty ship. Survivor, no. Not human survivors. Fucking poltergeist outside. Little shit hard to shoot but with bullet it die. Saw snorks. Many anomaly. Some mutant I don't know, but if you can shoot, it die. You fellow Stalker? Have gun but no suit. You jack off in psy field little vybliadok? You want help. Help turn off anomaly generator, no? Then we get rich."How do you respond?
>>27337447"My name's Anon, and your ship crashlanded outside my home. Yuriko and I came to see if there were any survivors. Are you the only one?"
>>27337680"Sounds like you got the plan, Stalker."Smile and offer your hand to her. "Partners? You'll have to split the salvage with Yuriko, but she only has her eye on a few choice parts.Oh, didn't catch your name."
>>27337680"Anomaly? "No way, you're from the Zone? We're a long way from Ukraine, I think. Definitely in the tropics. "But yeah, if you know where the anomaly generator is, then we'll help. Don't want a piece of the Zone right on our doorstep, after all."
>>27337817Do we have in-character knowledge of the Zone?
Rolled 12, 96, 31, 34, 34, 49, 39 = 295>>27337817>>27337816>>27337781Her eyes light up when you mention the zone. "I know where to go, must follow me. You call yourself STALKER but only bolt you have is in your pants ahahah. We go kill fucking mutant outside then head to Kurvee generator and fucking kill that too!" She lowers her rifle and pulls you up off the floor. She holsters her Vintorez and pulls out a drummed shotgun. She cuts a little dance and opens the door screaming. "AH NU! CHEEKI BREKI IV DAMKI!" A hail of bullets rips from her shotgun. You briefly notice the armory has been completely looted. You can guess where it all went.You and Yuriko Follow in guns blazing.First 8 1d100s to kill that fucking mutant!
>>27337951You have knowledge of the zone in the context that its one of the greatest open world survival horror fps by operators for operators game ever made. But to you it was just a video game. To this woman, it was a real place.
Rolled 43>>27337955>96Here we go again
>>27337955>96>get out of here stalker
Rolled 21>>27337955>>27337972I wonder if she'll consider Beth's island better or worse.>96Great.
Rolled 17>>27337955We ain't killing him this round it seems
Rolled 95>>27337955Damn, our luck isn't with us tonight.
>>27338074Eh, can't win every roll.
Such is life in the Zone.
Rolled 17, 24, 64, 4, 13, 86, 42 = 250>>2733807496<95Every single pellet she fires misses. Yuriko's shot goes wild and freezes an entire bunk solid. Even you, with a goddam flashlight rifle can't hit the fist sized floating mutant, but you do melt some impressive holes in the roof. The loose objects begin to float around the room. A radio kicks on, feeding off the anomalous energy. A song begins to play.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9wgI6rCbY4The radio flys at Yuriko's head.Dodge it rookie!3 1d100's please.
Rolled 84>>27338215Come on!

>>27338378don't use up are XP
>>27338378Son, we already won this, let's not make this Not Good.
84<86The radio ricochets off of Yuriko's head leaving a deep gash and a shot of blood. She is stumbled, but your STALKER maid rushes in with a bandage. "Don't worry little one, Ava has you." She wraps up Yuriko's head and cracks a smelling salt. Ava yells out, "Its just a fucking poltergeist, hit it once with your fucking flashlight and it die!"15/1= 15 HP damage!Ava - 40HP 0MPYou - 20HP 0MPYuriko - 5HP 5MPShit. Yuriko is pretty badly hurt, but shes stable.Orders?

Rolled 5>>27338515"Ava, take Yuriko to the Armory! Shut the door!"Fire a volley. We mad.
Rolled 15>>27338515Shit. Yuriko, fall back and stay at range. I hope we have a med kit packed on us or that there is one close by
Is this because That Guy isn't here? We've had good luck up until this fight.
Rolled 98, 24, 96, 79, 17, 2, 60 = 376"Ava get her behind the armory door. I'll shoot the mutant." Ava already has a medkit out and shes holding a strange orb to her bleeding head would. The door snaps shut just as a shower of bolts rains against the door. You dive behind cover and pop out to take the shot.Roll to kill that fucker.4 1d100's new rule. you can spend X xp to raise a die roll that much so it wins
>>27338515We need to kill the poltergeist.Shoot it with the flashlight.
>>27338701>96>98Blowout soon fellow stalker....
Rolled 3>>27338701>>27338730Really? When?
Rolled 2>>27338701>98>96Fuck. At this rate we should just run up and kick it in the nuts cause it be just as effective
You know what? Fuck this fight. We're going back into the armory, get Yuriko back on her feet, and then we're bolting for medbay.
>>27338798We can use this, right? That's what, 12 xp?
Rolled 12>>27338701One more try.
Rolled 91>>27338850Spend those 12XP; this is ridiculous.
>>27338857>>27338854>>27338757>>27338753I want to get off this ship.
>>27338757>>27338753>>27338854>>27338857NOW!11xp spentYou've fucking had it with this little shit of a mutant. You charge the little floating ball and jam your barrel into it. You feel a moment of resistance and you pull the trigger. There is a scream and a flash as your SAR dumps an ungodly amount of kilojoules into it's chest. Meaty chunks spray across the wall and the levitating objects collapse, inert once again.+30 Xp for killing the mutant.9 damage / 1 willpower = 9-2 = 7 Damage(Poltergeists are psychic entities )7-1 = -6 HPYou cheer, but remember Yuriko's state. The door opens up and Yuriko crawls out simply bloodstained. The wound on her head is healed completely and she is chatting with Ava over the strange object in her hands. "Is artifact. You shoot mutant, you jump anomaly and get prize. Usually shit so you sell to suka ecologist for ruble, but this one not shit, so I save." Ava looks at you. We go to anomaly generator now. Have to go through room to north. Other route blocked."Anything to say or do before we move on?
>>27338986Are we the ones who got damaged?
>>27338986no you killed the shit out of the poltergeist. Here is where you stand stat wise.Ava - 40HP 0MPYou - 20HP 0MPYuriko - 20HP 10MP
>>27338986Get to the Medbay to heal up Yuriko some more.
>>27339056Shes at max, but the medbay is where you are heading.
>>27338986Pray to any god to please help us out cause shit need some help with luck tonight
>>27339046Okay, then tell Yuriko we're glad she's okay and then carefully head on over to medbay. Ask Ava if she has a good eye for bloodsuckers, because I suspect we'll see those soon.
>>27338986Pick up some of the debris around here so that we can use them as a stand-in for bolts.When we get to medbay, look in from the doorway, and throw in some debris to check for anomalies.
>>27339212That's a very good idea.
>>27339097You take a knee and whisper a prayer to the only god that matters. You feel a mighty hand rest upon your shoulder. A deep voice whispers in your ear. "The Emperor protects, but good fucking luck." You feel empowered.>>27339144Ava laughs. "With your shooting, if bloodsucker we have, you would be dead already. Such is life in zone." >>27339212The three of you head north in to the hallway leading to the Medbay. The walls are covered in soot and there are many charred bodies lining the walls. Ava makes a sound, but you are already casting a bolt into the dark. A jet of flame erupts, scorching the wall for a few moments before stopping. You can make out little shimmering bubbles drifting around. You could make your around them if you are careful but if you had just blundered in. "We make stalker out of you yet. Okay then, you first rookie and don't touch them." Ava insists. The next 15 minutes are harrowing as you each deftly navigate the burners. You all reach the end of the hallway and open the medbay hatch. the bubbles do not follow you in. You turn and are greeted with a carnival of surgical delights. There is blood everywhere. It is pooled an inch deep on the floor, its dripping from every vent and crevice, the blood is flowing up the walls and congealing in mid air. Everywhere are bodies, well at least parts of bodies. They appear to have been half gnawed on and half precisely vivisected. Yuriko vomits while Ava looks troubled. "Is not just mutant on board?" she asks. You don't know. Ava taps her detector." No anomalies here, we move on?"Explore or move on?
>>27339310Quick scavenge around. May be something useful, but lets not waste to much time
>>27339367roll a 1d20. DC13 on cursory check
>>27339310Just because there are no anomalies, doesn't mean that it doesn't pay to throw some bolts in.Then check real quick and then go on.
>>27339310>"Not just mutant on board""You saw those three guys in the cafeteria? Someone or something got on board and drove everyone nuts. Maybe it got into their heads, maybe it got into their bodies. Either way, it's better not to touch anything, or linger to long."
Rolled 3>>27339419and my luck has been terrible tonight...
Rolled 8>>27339419DC13? That's not going to be easy to beat.
>>27339455You hunt around room looking for anything of use. When you duck under a table a soft rustling sound comes out of a pile of blood stained papers and something shoots out towards the air duct by Ava's feet. "GRAB IT!" you scream on impulse. Ava lunges towards the wriggling thing with her knife!Athletics check. first d20 calls it! DC7
Rolled 69Omnissiah Deliver unto us one of Your Children, that we may Venerate and Praise it, and to our home bring it. Let us take it from this foul, sorry place and provide it proper service and thanks.
>>273395272xp to boost it?
>>27339542Sure, why not?
>>27339542Whats our xp at again?
2 Xp spent.101-2-12+30= 117 XP total.Eva's knife misses the thing by inches, but it pins the creature against the floor. It twitches for a few seconds, but suddenly dies. It looks like a severed tongue but not a human one. You search through the papers it crawled out of. One catches your eye. All it says is "Fig 1: Ovipositor. You toss some bolts around to see if anything jumps, but all that is in here seems to be corpses.Do you move on?
>>27339619Oh god, why IslandMaid? Why?"I'd know that shit anywhere. This place has goddamn genestealers."I'm tempted to have Yuriko check Ava for cuts, but we can do that on the beach. We must make a note of it, though.
>>27339680It's a space hulk. What did you expect. Rainbows and loli-pops?
>>27339699don't forget sunshine and bunnies!
>>27339699Given that it travels through the warp regularly, yes, along with damn near everything else.
>>27339699I at least expected Loli-pops in the med bay. Can't doctors reward good patients anymore?
>>27339699I would have been fine with find a hold fill of Loli-pops
>>27339619Yes, move on.
>>27339680"I'd know that shit anywhere. This place has goddamn genestealers." Ava looks at you funny. "Is mutant, I kill. What is problem?" She punctuates this by stomping on the alien organ with her boot, green blood oozes out. You think to check Ava for filthy xeno corruption but judging how fast she stomped the ovipositor you think she's clean.Do you move on or press the issue?
>>27339821move on for now but have her checked out after we get out
>>27339821Press the issue, by informing her WHAT a genestealer is and their dangers."Yeah, it's a mutant, but very dangerous. Think of something that's as fast and strong as a bloodsucker, but has the smarts and mind control of a Controller. And it can infect you with parasites. So don't get caught."Then move on.
>>27339821"It's worse than a mutant, Ava. You better hope you never get touched by that tongue. Trust me."Should we have Yuriko carefully bag/bottle the tongue with a pair of forceps? Might help her work on a cure if Ava ain't so lucky. Or if we ain't so lucky.
>>27339981You grasp her by the shoulders. "Yeah, it's a mutant, but very dangerous. Think of something that's as fast and strong as a bloodsucker, but has the smarts and mind control of a Controller. And it can infect you with parasites. So don't get caught." She pauses for a moment, considering what you said. "So... its like bandit, but smarter. Okay. I don't want pregnancy yet ha ha." >>27340008That's up to you guys.
>>27340008Yeah, we should.
>>27340049"Bandit with military armor and super strength and speed."
>>27340096I think we've made our point. Ava is just playing tough guy.>>27340078Carefully bag it and move on then. We brought our science officer, no point in not using her.
>>27340096"Bandit in armor or bandit with coat. Still suka with uvas melankie Pisune." She makes a gesture with her fingers showing a small distance. "Either way I shoot or die." She looks unfazed. You figure she is made of sterner stuff than a normal woman. She is a STALKER. What is the horror of one land compared to the horror of another.You call over Yuriko to tag and bag the piece of Genestealer tongue. She finds an undamaged bio-hazard containment vessel and using some very long tongs she puts the specimen inside, taking care not to get fluid on anything.The three of you head into the command center to find it relatively undamaged. There are only a few blood stains scattered about but the consoles are still working. Yuriko quickly sets about tapping away. You can't make heads or tails of what is displayed, but there is an awful amount of red. After some time she stands up. "Ship shield inverted. Pockets of energy trapped within ship. Cause anomaly. Have to travel to generator and shut down there." There is a diagram projects on the central display. "Gellar Field Device Malfunction. Contact Adeptus Mechanicus." flashes in bright red colors. Ava scoffs, "technology and scientists. I told you. We go to anomaly generator and break it." She shakes a rather strangely shaped red can in your face. Yuriko chimes in. "Anything else with ship?" she asks.Anything more to do in the command center?
>>27340385Any internal security systems?Have Yuriko download the ship's log and any information from its databanks onto her PDA.Then check the power system going to the generator; is there a fuel system that she can shut down, or an emergency core ejection mechanism she can trigger from here?
>>27340461Agreeing.Whatever the answer, next place is Gellar Field Generator, which will probably close us for the night.
Had to switch computers.>>27340461>>27340489>>27340507You ask Yuriko if she can pull up any more information on the ship, its logs and information on cutting power to the field remotely or on site. She greedily taps away at the data slate. You do your best to cut through her broken english as she rattles of information. The ship is missing almost the entirety of its log. From what Yuriko can piece together the ship was drifting along when something caused its shield to invert trapping large sections of warp within its confines and tearing the ship to pieces. This section of the rather small hulk survived as it was closest to the generator. The little pockets of anomalies are those trapped bits of warp energy. The ship drifted until something pulled it near Earth, it exited into normal space and it crashed into the ocean. The field generator needs to be shut down manually by spinning down its reactor. The process is straight forward once you cut through the pages and pages of machine spirit bullshit. You eject the 4 control rods and pump out the fuel. You could do it from this console but something has shut off the control paths from the core itself. As you are speaking with Yuriko you hear a muffled snarl like a lion behind you as something heavy collides with your back. A gas mask tube slaps against your neck as strong fingers grasp your neck. "SNORK!" Ava shouts....And that is where we will leave it. I had something come up so saturday will have to be moved. I will run this either Sunday afternoon or again on TuesdayThanks for playing!
>>27340829>that cliffhangerJeez.Thanks for running today, OP. I'll keep a lookout Sunday.
>>27340829>Snork attack from behindGoddamnit.Alright, see you next time.
