Broken Hill and The Octo-Curator

(5:14:23 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty checks the locations to hit. "So…where to first?"
(5:15:34 PM) Dawny left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(5:17:30 PM) Ragazzo: "What's that? The hotel? Thank you not utterly silent companions."
(5:17:51 PM) Tom90deg: "I don't know, I'd say somewhere with information, but the bank may be pointless."
(5:18:08 PM) E4D: "What type of 'information' are you looking for?"
(5:18:12 PM) Doctor_Light: "Looking for things? Try warehouse?"
(5:18:58 PM) Maddy: There are several places on the GPS. The gun shop, Palace Hotel and plice station are all within blocks of each other.
(5:19:11 PM) Tom90deg: "What happened, if there was a…retreaing point, if everyone ran somewhere in paticualr…"
(5:19:33 PM) Maddy: There is also the Aquarium, Grocerystore and an art galery in the part of town that has power
(5:19:56 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty lifts off these options, giving their distances relative to each other.
(5:20:50 PM) Tom90deg: "An art gallery?"
(5:20:55 PM) E4D: "Well, I don't know if there was a lot of 'running' per se. We kept some of our most dageroushit here in Australia, on account of it's an island, and if something terrible happens, well, it's an island, and it's Australia. The world's not losing a crown jewel. Everywhere we've hit until now has been straight gone."
(5:21:30 PM) Tom90deg: "Huh…."
(5:21:54 PM) Doctor_Light: "Like fish," Birdy says from the top of the car.
(5:21:59 PM) Doctor_Light: "…But police, might know more."
(5:22:03 PM) E4D: "The first town got literally eaten by Cthulhu, the second one was melted by the nanoswarm, number three eaten by dingos, we guess, I have a sneaking suspicion all those green orbs in Augusta used to be people, and this one? Hell, I have no idea."
(5:22:05 PM) Tom90deg: "Good point."
(5:22:53 PM) Ragazzo: "Just in case there's something nasty waiting for us at one of these places, let's hit up the places with stuff we absolutely need? Guns, or food first?"
(5:23:09 PM) Ragazzo: *need before anything
(5:23:13 PM) E4D: "Holy shit, me agreeing with Dusty. Must be the end of the world."
(5:23:19 PM) E4D: "Oh. *Wait*."
(5:23:27 PM) Ragazzo: "Haha."
(5:23:31 PM) Tom90deg: "Heh…I say guns. WE have lots of food, right?"
(5:24:05 PM) Ragazzo: "What green orbs? And ok."
(5:24:16 PM) E4D: "You can *never* have too many guns. I don't know what kind of crap we're gonna find here, though. Ammo's more important than the weapons."
(5:24:28 PM) Maddy: The team is currently closer to Kings Aquarium, Red Robin Deli (Sorry restaurant, not grocery) and Bush n' Beyond Gallery.
(5:24:57 PM) E4D: "Dusty, you didn't notice the 10 million, million, million, million little green orbs floating around Port Augusta?"
(5:25:00 PM) Ragazzo: What's the bush n' beyond gallery?
(5:25:09 PM) Maddy: An art gallery.
(5:25:12 PM) E4D: "One of them flew through Alice's *face* while she was talking to you."
(5:25:27 PM) Ragazzo: "…you mean the wisps?"
(5:25:43 PM) E4D: "Whatever. I didn't see any name tags attached to 'em."
(5:25:59 PM) Ragazzo: "I didn't bother examining them, but they looked like anything more regular will o' the wisps."
(5:26:07 PM) Ragazzo: *they didn't look
(5:26:50 PM) Ragazzo: "Ok…so we're closest to the aquarium, a restaraunt, and…an art gallery?"
(5:27:02 PM) Doctor_Light: "Looked like moths," birdman comments. "And that is too many just to be people."
(5:27:24 PM) Maddy: Theres a note in with the marker on the gallery.
(5:27:34 PM) Ragazzo: He reads it.
(5:27:48 PM) Maddy: "Lol, Bush n' Beyond. What a terrible name."
(5:28:11 PM) Ragazzo: "Your wife has a very refined sense of humor."
(5:30:02 PM) E4D: "I don't get it."
(5:30:04 PM) Tom90deg: "I say Aquarium first. That's what was lit up last night…."
(5:30:34 PM) E4D: "Like Dusty said, we're hitting shit we need first. Curiosities can come after."
(5:30:41 PM) E4D: "Dusty? Punch it."
(5:31:03 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty moves at a safe and reasonable speed to the restaraunt.
(5:31:50 PM) Ragazzo: "These places have good sandwiches."
(5:32:13 PM) Ragazzo: "They burn them sometimes though."
(5:32:17 PM) Maddy: Where is Dusty driving to?
(5:32:24 PM) Ragazzo: Red robin.
(5:33:47 PM) Maddy: The Red Robin is on Gypsum Street, you pass the Aquarium on the way. Perception

(5:37:24 PM) E4D: :|
(5:38:20 PM) Maddy: Zoe, Jason and Alanoch notice that the aquarium looks mush cleaner and better maintained than the buildings around it.
(5:38:35 PM) Tom90deg: "Huh…"
(5:38:46 PM) E4D: Any damage to the other buildings? Vehicles?
(5:39:40 PM) Nioki: "Weird. I wouldn't think that the one place someone chooses to clean would be the Aquarium."
(5:40:27 PM) Maddy: There's some damage and wear and tear. As for vehicles, it looks like a lot of people left town in a hurry.
(5:41:00 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty's driving along but glances at the aquarium. "That's odd. Bet it's some kind of aquatic cult…"
(5:41:03 PM) Tom90deg: "I agree, something's up…we should check it out once we get the essentials."
(5:41:13 PM) Tom90deg: "That seems rather specific Dusty."
(5:41:38 PM) Ragazzo: "I'll bet you three bars of gold."
(5:41:50 PM) E4D: "Copy, Dusty, all stations, be advised, stay on the lookout for Aquaman."
(5:42:37 PM) Tom90deg: "Aquaman was actually one of the most powerful superheros."
(5:42:57 PM) Ragazzo: "The question was cooler."
(5:43:09 PM) Maddy: The rest of the trip to Red Robin is relatively uneventful. This town does have one difference to the others. There are things like feral cats and dogs skulking about. Pets no doubt left behind during the mass exodous.
(5:43:41 PM) Ragazzo: "Poor things…"
(5:43:48 PM) Doctor_Light: "Knew a girl who was a sea lion, once," Birdman calls from the outside of the vehicle.
(5:44:10 PM) Tom90deg: "Hmm…Stray animals…that could be a good sign."
(5:44:36 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty parks once they arrive.
(5:44:41 PM) E4D: "No one tell Alice, or we'll never leave the city."
(5:45:31 PM) Ragazzo: He hops out.
(5:45:48 PM) Maddy: The Red Robin also has power, anyone with points in Electronics can figure out it's probably on the same grid as the Aquaruim.
(5:46:28 PM) Ragazzo: "That's good…might be some stuff left."
(5:47:15 PM) Tom90deg: "STill, I'd vote for sticking with non-perishables."
(5:47:18 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdy climbs off the back. "But don't think she's in there." He points at the aquarium.
(5:47:35 PM) Ragazzo: "Probably not, birdman."
(5:48:11 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty goes to the door, and tries to open it.
(5:48:16 PM) Nioki: Alanoch climbs out, and begins pulling light around himself. No reason to take risks.
(5:48:33 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe climbs out and looks in one of the windows.
(5:48:59 PM) E4D: Jason stays behind on the .50. "Tear it up, guys. I got external."
(5:49:20 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdman also approaches the door with Dusty.
(5:50:09 PM) Maddy: Inside, it looks like the place must have been closed for the day when everyone ran. The chairs are up on the tables and the door is locked.
(5:50:31 PM) Ragazzo: "Hmm…"
(5:50:40 PM) Tom90deg: "Hmm….Well, I can get the doors open if you want, or if you'd rather just blow them open."
(5:50:54 PM) Ragazzo: "Could you just pick it, zoe?"
(5:50:57 PM) Nioki: "Just teleport to the other side."
(5:51:02 PM) Doctor_Light: 4df+4 Kick down the goddamn door

(5:51:12 PM) Quidmore: Maddy: I am a door: 0 (4df=+, +, -, -)
(5:51:29 PM) Maddy: The door is knocked off its hinges.
(5:51:31 PM) Tom90deg: "…Never mind, I was going to say it'd be much quieter to just unlock it…"
(5:51:32 PM) E4D: "Jesus, Birdman."
(5:51:44 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdy kicks down the goddam door.
(5:51:49 PM) Doctor_Light: He crows jubilantly.
(5:51:52 PM) Ragazzo: "…I like how you think, Birdman."
(5:51:58 PM) E4D: "Dynamic entry up in this motherfucker."
(5:52:29 PM) Maddy: There's a thin layer of dust on everything.
(5:52:31 PM) Maddy: 1d2
(5:52:32 PM) Quidmore: Maddy: 2 (1d2=2)
(5:52:35 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe looks into the door, sniffing, seeing if there's any rotting smells.
(5:52:48 PM) Nioki: "Okay. That works too."
(5:52:51 PM) Maddy: The alarm goes off.
(5:53:00 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty blinks.
(5:53:07 PM) Nioki: 4df+4 Luxamancy maneuver -> Stealth.

(5:53:14 PM) Tom90deg: "Oy…."
(5:53:14 PM) Ragazzo: "OH no, the police are going to come to be mad."
(5:53:25 PM) Ragazzo: He rolls his eyes.
(5:53:28 PM) Maddy: There are no rotting smells.
(5:53:29 PM) Tom90deg: "What about everything else in the town Dusty? Don't be stupid."
(5:53:37 PM) Nioki: Alanoch isn't invisible. Just shimmering and wavering a bit. The alarm is a bit distracting.
(5:54:25 PM) Tom90deg: "Give me some cover, I'll try to disable the alarm…."
(5:54:32 PM) Nioki: "…If there's anything here to hear this, we probably don't want the attention."
(5:54:39 PM) Ragazzo: "Go ahead."
(5:54:57 PM) E4D: Jason wheels the gun around, up and down the street, looking for anything attracted to the noise.
(5:55:10 PM) E4D: «Hey guys, you tripped an alarm.»
(5:55:22 PM) Maddy: Nothing seems to be bothered by the noise.
(5:55:27 PM) Tom90deg: "You don't say Jason."
(5:55:30 PM) Ragazzo: «We can hear it, thanks.»
(5:55:43 PM) Maddy: 1d2
(5:55:43 PM) Quidmore: Maddy: 2 (1d2=2)
(5:55:45 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe steps inside, looking for a control box for the alarm.
(5:55:58 PM) E4D: «I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.»
(5:55:59 PM) Maddy: It's plainly on the wall near the door.
(5:56:19 PM) Laito [||sirhc] entered the room.
(5:56:27 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe walks over and examines it, hopeing there's something silly like the code written on the box.
(5:56:27 PM) Nioki: Alanoch rubs the side of his head. Then he walks inside and looks for the kitchen.
(5:56:33 PM) Laito left the room.
(5:56:36 PM) Nioki: «Let's do this quickly and get somewhere else.»
(5:56:39 PM) Tom90deg: 4df+4

(5:57:11 PM) Waxx [moc.rr.ser.oen.1F7C9A8-CRInys|xxaW#moc.rr.ser.oen.1F7C9A8-CRInys|xxaW] entered the room.
(5:57:17 PM) Maddy: The alarm shuts off.
(5:57:28 PM) Tom90deg: "Allon ze!"
(5:57:40 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty nods, keeping an eye out. He then goes to follow alan when it shuts off.
(5:57:41 PM) Maddy: In the kitchen there are large fridges, one freezer and dry storage.
(5:57:50 PM) Ragazzo: "Let's get what we need…"
(5:58:07 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe looks around the rest of the resteraunt.
(5:58:42 PM) Nioki: Alanoch opens them all.
(6:00:12 PM) Maddy: Most of the food in the fridge is, regrettably, bad. The frezeers, however are chalk full of meat, bread and frozen juice.
(6:00:33 PM) Maddy: Dry storage mostly has cans of olives.
(6:00:39 PM) Ragazzo: "Handy."
(6:00:57 PM) Maddy: And uniforms.
(6:01:10 PM) Tom90deg: "Find anything?!" Zoe shouts from the main dining area.
(6:01:21 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdman looks through the kitchen.
(6:01:27 PM) Maddy: The main dining area is boring. And dusty as shit.
(6:01:30 PM) Ragazzo: «Food. Uniforms.»
(6:01:42 PM) Nioki: He takes a couple bags of frozen raw meat, and a bag of ice. He struggles to carry them back to El Diablo.
(6:01:50 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty does the same.
(6:01:56 PM) Tom90deg: "Nothing in the main area. Lot of dust though…How long ago did yo say this whole world ending thing happened? A month?"
(6:02:26 PM) Nioki: «Some frozen goods. Do we have something to keep this in?»
(6:02:53 PM) Ragazzo: «Eh. Worst case we get to eat like kings tonight.»
(6:03:07 PM) E4D: "Shit, we're gonna have to go and get like… a freezer or something to put that crap in. We could get a flat bed, and hook it up to the back of the RV. Just use it as a straight logistics vehicle."
(6:03:30 PM) Nioki: «If we have a box, the ice can hold it for now.»
(6:03:49 PM) Ragazzo: "Good thinking."
(6:03:55 PM) Tom90deg: "MAybe we can get some kinda…portable generator and some of those massive freezers, and just stick it all on a flatbed?"
(6:03:58 PM) DawnyWorks [moc.noehtyar.AC98E749-CRInys|tibbiM#moc.noehtyar.AC98E749-CRInys|tibbiM] entered the room.
(6:04:25 PM) Nioki: «We just set off an alarm. We shouldn't stay here any longer than we have to.»
(6:04:39 PM) E4D: "… that was the idea, Zoe. That's sort of exactly what I said."
(6:04:53 PM) Tom90deg: "Sorry, Didn't hear you…"
(6:05:50 PM) E4D: "Well, the RV *does* have a freezer. We could radio back and have someone bring it up."
(6:05:55 PM) Ragazzo: "…hang on." Dusty sets down this meat and ice.
(6:06:00 PM) Ragazzo: *his
(6:06:25 PM) Ragazzo: He goes to check if their are some sort of movable containers inside.
(6:06:38 PM) Ragazzo: Like, say, an ice chest.
(6:06:43 PM) Maddy: No dice.
(6:07:05 PM) Nioki: Alanoch walks back inside to check what's in the dry storage.
(6:07:09 PM) Ragazzo: "Well then."
(6:07:34 PM) Ragazzo: He rubs his cheek.
(6:07:55 PM) Tom90deg: "WE can come back, this place looks pretty dead. You'd think people would have cleaned it out if anyone was left."
(6:08:11 PM) Ragazzo: "We could come back for this after we're done, yeah."
(6:08:44 PM) Ragazzo: "Find some ice chests somewhere."
(6:08:54 PM) E4D: "Dusty, keep it up, I'm about to be impressed. That's like 15 smart things you've said in a row."
(6:09:54 PM) Nioki: He also shuts the fridge and freezer.
(6:11:28 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdman finds a big wire whisk in the kitchen. Sadly, this is not very useful, though it makes a cool noise when he flicks the side.
(6:11:50 PM) E4D: «Found anything, Birdman? You doin' all right in there?»
(6:12:17 PM) Maddy: There's really nothing else of note in the building.
(6:12:31 PM) Doctor_Light: "Not much." Regretfully, he places it back on the counter, and emerges.
(6:13:01 PM) Ragazzo: "Let's go, before fate decides to take another swing at me."
(6:13:35 PM) Tom90deg: "Sounds good. Where to next?"
(6:14:08 PM) E4D: "Gun shop."
(6:14:17 PM) Ragazzo: "Alright."
(6:14:25 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty heads back to the humvee, gets in.
(6:14:54 PM) Nioki: Alanoch as well.
(6:14:59 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe follows.
(6:15:50 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdy stays outside. "Will follow," he says. He can run quite fast.
(6:15:56 PM) Ragazzo: "You know…with Bel's help, I think I could set up a moat around the hotel."
(6:16:09 PM) Ragazzo: "I've been thinking about it."
(6:16:35 PM) Tom90deg: "Why? We're not gonna get invaded by visagoths."
(6:16:40 PM) Ragazzo: "We wouldn't be long enough for it to matter, but it would be fun."
(6:16:51 PM) Maddy: Silver City Guns & Ammo is to the north east. About 300m.
(6:17:07 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty drives off that way.
(6:17:08 PM) E4D: "What's a visagoth? That like those tatter things you and Midnight were talkin' about, Dusty?"

(6:18:51 PM) Maddy: Ok you all notice the windows are boarded up, and there's a truck outside the shop.
(6:19:01 PM) Ragazzo: "Well."

(6:20:18 PM) Nioki: "Should I take a look?"
(6:20:41 PM) E4D: "Stand by."
(6:21:30 PM) E4D: Jason dismounts, hopping up out of the turret, boots slamming on the hood, then hopping down to the ground. He unfolds his rifle's stock as he goes, running up the the corner of the building, moving in a low crouch to the window.
(6:21:45 PM) E4D: «Get someone on that .50.»
(6:22:01 PM) E4D: «Al? Back me up here?"
(6:22:30 PM) Tom90deg: «I don't know how to use that thing.»
(6:23:18 PM) Nioki: Alanoch climbs up.
(6:23:43 PM) Ragazzo: «I used that laser gun once but…»
(6:23:49 PM) E4D: «There's a butterfly-shaped lever on the back between the handles. Point it at what you want to hit, and push the butterfly down.»
(6:23:59 PM) Nioki: «I could take a quieter look, you know. I can make myself invisible.»
(6:24:08 PM) E4D: «Go for it, kid.»
(6:24:19 PM) E4D: «I'll cover *you*.»

(6:27:51 PM) E4D: Jason stay a few feet behind him, keeping low.
(6:28:09 PM) E4D: He whispers, "You got a gun, kid?"
(6:29:32 PM) Nioki: "I don't know how to use one," he whispers back. "I shouldn't need one, anyway."
(6:29:52 PM) Nioki: He walks around the building, looking for a way to see inside.
(6:30:15 PM) Maddy: There are only the front windows and glass door. All covered.
(6:31:15 PM) E4D: 4df+4 Jason approaches the door, leaning to the edge. He reaches into his utility pouch, removing a cammie paint kit, opening it, and turning the mirror to face inside.

(6:32:39 PM) E4D: "Oh, derp."
(6:32:40 PM) Nioki: He stops next to the door.
(6:32:57 PM) E4D: He raises up, grabbing the handle, testing it.
(6:33:02 PM) Maddy: Birdy finds a hunting rifle
(6:33:18 PM) Maddy: Unlocked.
(6:33:51 PM) Doctor_Light: He pulls it out- if the window is open.
(6:33:58 PM) Nioki: "I'll take a look inside. Don't follow until I say so."
(6:33:59 PM) Maddy: It is!
(6:34:07 PM) Maddy: Rifle aquired!
(6:34:09 PM) E4D: Does it open in or out?
(6:34:14 PM) Maddy: out
(6:34:48 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdman puts the RIFE in his INVENTORY- no, never mind, he just holds it and mimes shooting at something. Carefully.
(6:35:15 PM) E4D: Jason wheels to the other side. "Get low for a second, Al." He yanks the door open, staying against the wall, pulling it to him.

(6:36:04 PM) Tom90deg: «What's up?»
(6:36:27 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty's nose twitches, catching a whiff. "Oh no…"
(6:36:28 PM) E4D: «Something's dead in here."
(6:37:31 PM) Nioki: Alanoch listens at the door for anything moving.
(6:37:37 PM) E4D: "Stay low. Crawl in. No one *ever* looks that low."
(6:37:54 PM) Maddy: No movement
(6:38:14 PM) Tom90deg: «Damn…»
(6:38:30 PM) Nioki: "I don't hear anything moving. Should I just illuminate the place?"
(6:38:52 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdy returns to the others, with the rifle. "Should look around?"
(6:40:13 PM) Ragazzo: "…probably."
(6:40:23 PM) Ragazzo: «Jason, should we send birdman in?»
(6:40:36 PM) E4D: "Go for it, Birdman."
(6:41:00 PM) Doctor_Light: 4df+4 Sneakery
(6:41:01 PM) Quidmore: Doctor_Light: Sneakery: 1 (4df+4=-, -, 0, -)
(6:41:33 PM) Nioki: "I'm already invisible. Maybe I should?"
(6:41:44 PM) Maddy: Where the corpse laying before the counter of the shop able to, he totally would have spotted Birdman.
(6:41:48 PM) Maddy: But he is dead.
(6:41:49 PM) Doctor_Light: He seems to flatten a little, but not much. He walks in anyways, and takes a look around.
(6:42:15 PM) E4D: "Go for it, dude." Stay ahead of Birdy."
(6:42:21 PM) Maddy: Looks like, and smells like he's been dead for a while.
(6:42:22 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdy walks over to the corpse and lifts up the head, looking it up and down for anything unusual.
(6:42:25 PM) Nioki: 4df+4 Stealthery
(6:42:26 PM) Quidmore: Nioki: Stealthery: 6 (4df+4=+, 0, 0, +)
(6:42:43 PM) Maddy: This poor man was clearly blasted in the chest.
(6:42:45 PM) Nioki: Alanoch moves like he isn't actually there.
(6:43:07 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdy looks behind the counter, too.
(6:43:11 PM) Nioki: Jason probably can't tell that he's gone.
(6:43:36 PM) Tom90deg: «Anything?»
(6:44:34 PM) Nioki: «Looks like something killed him. Chest wound.»
(6:45:07 PM) Doctor_Light: "Dead guy- yes, big hole in chest."
(6:45:14 PM) E4D: 4df+4 Ranged weapons. Gunshot?
(6:45:15 PM) Quidmore: E4D: Ranged weapons. Gunshot?: 6 (4df+4=+, +, 0, 0)
(6:45:25 PM) Maddy: Nothing behind the counter but some assorted ammo, like someone was hiding behind here.
(6:46:14 PM) Maddy: He was shot with a shotgun probably. It probably also sucked.
(6:46:20 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdy picks it up, and puts it on the counter, because the others wanted ammo. Nice going, birdman! Then he steps out to look around the shop more, for other doors.
(6:46:41 PM) Maddy: There's a door to what must be the back room.
(6:47:10 PM) Doctor_Light: He attempts to open it and go through.
(6:47:12 PM) Nioki: Alanoch looks in the direction the man must have been shot from. Maybe there's some evidence of who did it.
(6:47:23 PM) Maddy: Dead guy most definitely was killed by the hole resulting from the gunshot.
(6:47:37 PM) Maddy: Whoever shot the man was behind the counter.
(6:47:50 PM) Maddy: The door opens and…

(6:49:07 PM) Maddy: Birdman narrowly avoids the butt of a shotgun to the face.
(6:49:33 PM) Nioki: Alanoch spins, still invisible. He begins gathering light.
(6:49:37 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdy ducks, and-
(6:49:52 PM) Doctor_Light: 4df+4 Snap at the intruder!
(6:49:53 PM) Quidmore: Doctor_Light: Snap at the intruder!: 8 (4df+4=+, +, +, +)

(6:51:02 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdy rakes the guy's legs, also taking the opportunity to tackle him down.
(6:51:26 PM) Maddy: The man goes down screaming. "Oh god! N-no!"
(6:51:59 PM) E4D: Jason's rifle barrel is in his face a second later. "Stand *down* civilian! We are *not* here to hurt you."
(6:52:21 PM) Doctor_Light: And holds him there, because birdy knows it's not good to kill people unless they're bad. Still, he doesn't move.
(6:52:26 PM) E4D: "Nioki, get his weapon?"
(6:52:26 PM) Maddy: He thrashes, trying to get away from the Birdman, but his legs ain't working. "How are you real? You're just a fairy tale!"
(6:53:04 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe comes in behind them. "Someone's alive?"
(6:53:16 PM) Nioki: Alanoch rushes forward. He still isn't Nioki.
(6:53:25 PM) E4D: "Shit."

(6:54:08 PM) Maddy: The dude ain't letting go of his gun.
(6:54:38 PM) Maddy: He's staring, wild eyed at Birdman.
(6:54:40 PM) E4D: "Sir, if you don't let go of the weapon, I'm gonna have to get mean."
(6:54:43 PM) Ragazzo: «Everything ok in there?»
(6:54:50 PM) Maddy: "B-b-birdman!"
(6:54:56 PM) E4D: "We got a survivor."
(6:55:06 PM) Tom90deg: «Survivor, rather disturbed.»
(6:55:29 PM) Nioki: It's a bit odd that the empty space just tried to grab it, I'm sure.
(6:55:31 PM) E4D: "Yeah, Birdman's friendly. He just did that cuz you tried to use his head as a pinata. Say 'hi' Birdman."
(6:55:45 PM) Doctor_Light: "Already did."
(6:56:08 PM) Ragazzo: «Right-o.»
(6:56:35 PM) Doctor_Light: He lets a bit of pressure off the guy's arms, but still doesn't quite let him go."
(6:56:48 PM) Maddy: "Ok, ok, I-I'll do whatever you want. Just keep that /thing/ away from me!"
(6:56:59 PM) Maddy: He lets go of the gun.
(6:57:26 PM) E4D: "That's two guns for ya, Birdman."
(6:58:46 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdman nods, then lets the guy go- he has a gun in his face anyways- and moves to the side.
(6:59:09 PM) Maddy: "W-who are you people?"
(7:00:42 PM) Tom90deg: "Survivors, like you."
(7:00:43 PM) E4D: "I'm a US Marine, trying to get to the Navy base in Potts Point."
(7:01:01 PM) Maddy: "…a-alright…"
(7:01:48 PM) Maddy: "I don't want any trouble…you can take whatever you want, just don't hurt me."
(7:02:32 PM) Nioki: Alanoch holds the gun. It becomes invisible like the rest of him.
(7:02:57 PM) E4D: "Look, we didn't know anyone was here." Jason takes a step back, lowring his rifle a bit. "Birdman? Let him go? Ease back?"
(7:03:01 PM) E4D: Derp
(7:03:02 PM) E4D: redact
(7:03:19 PM) E4D: "What happened to the man on the floor?"
(7:03:37 PM) Maddy: "He tried to rob me after everyone left."
(7:05:26 PM) Maddy: "Take everything if you have to! Just…please." the man still looks upon Birdman with fear.
(7:06:12 PM) Tom90deg: "Why'd you stay?"
(7:06:26 PM) Maddy: "This is my home. I have nowhere to go…"
(7:06:43 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdman is examining the guns, and looks up to meet the guy's glance. "Am friendly. Usually."
(7:06:53 PM) Doctor_Light: "Though, someone should fix his legs."
(7:07:14 PM) E4D: Jason looks back at him. "… nice shot."
(7:07:23 PM) Maddy: "…thank you."
(7:07:42 PM) Rights left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(7:08:14 PM) Tom90deg: "Yah….We could take him back or something, can't just leave him here wounded."
(7:09:28 PM) Maddy: "I'm not g-going anywhere with the birdman. He eats people who go walkabout!"
(7:09:35 PM) E4D: "We just stopped in for ammunition. We're not running short, just looking for more. We ain't takin' your stuff."
(7:09:35 PM) E4D: Jason looks around for clothing.
(7:10:25 PM) Maddy: The place is fairly well stocked with all the things you might need to go on a camping or hunting trip in the Outback.
(7:10:25 PM) E4D: "We can call the rest of the group up, and continue on ourselves." Jason sighs. "The only thing I've seen birdman eat the entire month was a deer's bones. For cal-ci-um."
(7:11:26 PM) Nioki: Alanoch finally drops the illusion.
(7:11:31 PM) E4D: Jason grabs a few shirts, slicing the sleeves off, then cutting down them lengthwise to make a long strip.
(7:11:55 PM) Nioki: "Okay. What do you know about the aquarium? It looked like someone's maintaining it."
(7:11:57 PM) E4D: "Hold still, mate, and don't try anything funny. I'm gonna try and wrap your leg up."
(7:12:07 PM) Doctor_Light: Though birdy doesn't really have facial expressions, he hunches a little and withdraws some. "Not often."
(7:12:43 PM) Maddy: The man closes his eyes. This is just to freaky for him.
(7:13:25 PM) Tom90deg: "What is the story about the aquarium? Have you seen anything?"
(7:13:32 PM) E4D: 4df Jason tries wrapping the man's leg up with the limited, crappy excuse for medical equipment he has.

(7:14:08 PM) Tom90deg: "You're out of your depth."
(7:14:22 PM) E4D: "Hey, man, I'm sorry, all I've I've got is a goddamn sliced up shirt."

(7:46:20 PM) E4D: "They're chilling at the hotel. It's just a block down."
(7:47:32 PM) Ragazzo: "Alright."
(7:48:55 PM) E4D: Jason tools along the streets following the route markers on the BFT like a boss.
(7:49:14 PM) Maddy: The trip to the Aquarium is uneventful until the get a block out. This entire area is lit up and has power.

(7:55:17 PM) E4D: Jason nods. "O' course."
(7:55:41 PM) Maddy: The Kings Aquarium stands, in strangely pristine condition.
(7:55:51 PM) Nioki: Alanoch follows Jason, and is himself followed by several black threads.
(7:55:59 PM) Ragazzo: "Still putting money on aquatic cult…"
(7:56:05 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty follows.
(7:57:12 PM) E4D: "Hey, Dusty, pop the door. Soon as it's open, I'm stepping inside."

(8:01:50 PM) Ragazzo: "You must not know many alchemists."

(8:05:31 PM) Nioki: Nope. He just wavers. Something must be off today.
(8:05:49 PM) E4D: Jason advances in the direction of the movement in a low groucho, rifle in his shoulder. "Dusty? Can you use your powers for the forces of truth, justice, and the American way?"
(8:05:55 PM) Maddy: The sounds comes from a ways down the hall, which is lined with tanks. The sea life all look healthy and happy.

(8:07:42 PM) Nioki: Alanoch walks forward silently, difficult to see as the light dodges around him.
(8:08:25 PM) E4D: "Sorry, Alanoch, I forgot I take my orders from a kid that's seen the light of day for all of a month. I was never given instruction on how to deal with any of this. Fuck me sideways, I'm glad you're hear to tell me all about engagement protocol."
(8:08:29 PM) Nioki: He looks to see what's there, not sure if he should expect a tenacious aquarium employee or a walking porpoise.
(8:08:34 PM) E4D: *here
(8:08:36 PM) Maddy: The humming comes from behind a door, the gurgly burbly tune still himming.
(8:09:25 PM) Nioki: "That's okay. You'll get used to it." Well, it sounds like he's joking, anyway.
(8:10:52 PM) Maddy: "Oh, now…the sharks need feeding in an hour…you shall do…" the voice is deep, and sounds as if the person speaking has lungs full of water.
(8:11:26 PM) Maddy: There's a creaking, as if another door is opened, then pleading and crying.
(8:11:33 PM) Ragazzo: "I'll just prepare both…"

(8:21:36 PM) Maddy: He moves to grab all of them. Having 8 limbs helps, but Jason gets the woman out of reach.

(8:26:44 PM) Doctor_Light: "Who are you?"
(8:26:50 PM) Maddy: "I'm the Curator."
(8:27:00 PM) Nioki: Alanoch concentrates, pulling in light. He certainly isn't hiding anymore, but the space around him is filled with black threads.
(8:27:28 PM) Maddy: "And yes. Regrettable as it is, the sharks need food, and I've run out of the normal food stores."

(9:41:01 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty frowns, humming thoughtfully.
(9:41:08 PM) Ragazzo: "Open his mouth?"
(9:41:42 PM) Maddy: The older woman from before is gathering the others.

(9:43:03 PM) E4D: "Agreed."
(9:44:16 PM) Ragazzo: "His magic is burning him up on the inside when he uses it, I think." Mumbles Dusty. "When he does stuff like that thing back there, it's sort of like a power surge frying electronics."
(9:44:43 PM) Maddy: The woman approaches Jason and Dusty. "We don't know how we can repay you. We don't have much, but we can promise if you ever need to come back this way, you'll have a place to stay in Broken Hill.
