Chuckie the Dog

Sep 27 14:42:09 <Maddy> Alice is still on the roof, being best sniper.
Sep 27 14:42:57 <Chuckie> "HELP HELP!" A four legged form, a greyhound is running towards the convoy.
Sep 27 14:42:59 <E4D> Jason's up there as well, giving her pointers, and attempting to teach her how to use a fire plan sketch and range book.
Sep 27 14:43:50 <MisterFlames> Midnight's ears perk up.
Sep 27 14:44:50 <Maddy> Alice looks at it through her scope. "…t-talking dog."
Sep 27 14:44:50 * Laito (||sirhc) has joined #afteraction
Sep 27 14:45:16 <Chuckie> "Help help!" The dog continues, rushing towards them.
Sep 27 14:45:48 <MisterFlames> "Well, now." Midnight says from her perch nearby. "Let me check the area…"
Sep 27 14:45:57 <MisterFlames> 4df+4 Occult Maneuver
Sep 27 14:45:57 <Glacon> MisterFlames: Occult Maneuver: 3 (4df+4=0, 0, -, 0)
Sep 27 14:46:03 <Maddy> "S-should we go d-down?"
Sep 27 14:46:38 <MisterFlames> 4df+6 Midnight focuses her thoughts to do a quick scan of the area, seeing what minds lurk in this town.
Sep 27 14:46:39 <Glacon> MisterFlames: Midnight focuses her thoughts to do a quick scan of the area, seeing what minds lurk in this town.: 7 (4df+6=0, +, +, -)
Sep 27 14:47:12 <E4D> Jason takes Alice's rifle, sighting in on the dog, looking at his neck.
Sep 27 14:48:06 <Chuckie> There is a red collar on his neck, bearing a round tag that reads 'Chuckie'
Sep 27 14:49:38 <MisterFlames> "I'm only picking up the dog," Midnight says. "And sapients are always of interest to me."
Sep 27 14:50:29 <E4D> "Go on, Alice. I gotcha."
Sep 27 14:51:02 <E4D> "Midnight? Go with her?"
Sep 27 14:51:09 <Maddy> Alice climbs off the roof heading over to the dog.
Sep 27 14:52:44 <MisterFlames> "Going." Midnight takes a quicker route down.
Sep 27 14:54:25 * Chuckie hurries up to alice, bouncing and jumping, eager for her attention. "Help lady, help help!"
Sep 27 14:54:47 * Chuckie stops, his snout lengthenign slighty as he goes on point towards Midnight. "CAT!"
Sep 27 14:54:47 <MisterFlames> Midnight meets up with Alice, and watches curiously.
Sep 27 14:54:52 * Ragazzo has quit (Quit: I'm out. Peace)
Sep 27 14:55:06 <Maddy> "Woah, woah, puppy. Calm down. Are you hurt?"
Sep 27 14:55:13 <MisterFlames> "Yes, I'm a cat, thank you." Midnight replies.
Sep 27 14:57:09 <Chuckie> "Nope, nope, I don't get hurt! CAT!" And he licks Midnight, with an obnoxiiously long tongue. Now that he is staionary, his coat begins to grow out.
Sep 27 14:58:15 <E4D> «What's the deal, people?»
Sep 27 14:58:41 <Maddy> «Talking dog…magic dog, s-says he need help.»
Sep 27 14:58:43 <MisterFlames> «I'm being licked by a hyperactive greyhound.» Midnight replies.
Sep 27 14:59:14 <E4D> «Oh, kickass! How's the headset, Midnight?»
Sep 27 14:59:36 <E4D> Jason's distracted by this obviously successful field test.
Sep 27 14:59:51 <Chuckie> "Help!" He turns around in a circle really quickly. "My master is sick!"
Sep 27 15:00:10 <MisterFlames> «It's working quite well. Oh, now we have some more data.»
Sep 27 15:00:22 <MisterFlames> "Your master? Where is he?"
Sep 27 15:00:47 * Chuckie goes on point again, looking like an irsh setter
Sep 27 15:00:53 <Maddy> «Says his master i-is sick.»
Sep 27 15:03:05 <PaulS_laptop> «uhhhgh, dammit why'd y'all wake me. Well, I'm up. What're we doing about this?»
Sep 27 15:03:57 <Maddy> "W-what can you tell us a-about you master?"
Sep 27 15:04:43 <MisterFlames> Midnight's distracted trying to deal with dog germs.
Sep 27 15:04:53 <Chuckie> "He's a great man,a genius, but he's real sick!"
Sep 27 15:05:45 <Maddy> "You know w-what he's sick w-with?"
Sep 27 15:05:52 <MisterFlames> ~Should we investigate this, Alice?~ Midnight thinks to her.
Sep 27 15:06:15 <Chuckie> "Nope nope nope! He needs help!" The dog wraps around her legs, nudging her hand.
Sep 27 15:07:29 <Maddy> Alice pets the doggy. ~Might be worth it.~
Sep 27 15:07:39 <E4D> «Oscar mike. Momentarily.»
Sep 27 15:08:24 <Maddy> "Ok…" she looks at the collar. "Ok Chuckie, give us j-just one sec and we'll see if we c-can help you.
Sep 27 15:08:57 <MisterFlames> «Interesting dog, though. Seems to change form.»
Sep 27 15:09:22 * Chuckie has quit (Ping timeout)
Sep 27 15:09:27 <E4D> Jason folds up Alice's rifle's bipod and heads down from the rooftop, exiting the hotel.
Sep 27 15:09:31 * Bright_ (~ten.labolgcbs.imzmlk.lsd.9B9CA139-CRInys|77tahCecI#ten.labolgcbs.imzmlk.lsd.9B9CA139-CRInys|77tahCecI) has joined #afteraction
Sep 27 15:09:43 <Bright_> "Nope nope nope! He needs help!" The dog wraps around her legs, nudging her hand.
Sep 27 15:10:00 <E4D> He jogs up to the group, gear jangling, and passes Alice her rifle.
Sep 27 15:10:19 <E4D> "Holy shit. A talking dog."
Sep 27 15:10:29 <PaulS_laptop> John staggers out to the group, absently loading a belt into his 240Mk2
Sep 27 15:11:01 <Bright_> "MAN!" He goes on point facing Jason…. then looks up with puppy dog eyes, looking pettable.
Sep 27 15:11:11 * Bright_ is now known as Bright
Sep 27 15:11:12 <MisterFlames> "I haven't really looked to see if he talks like you, or I." Midnight allows.
Sep 27 15:12:30 <Maddy> Alice taks her gun and slings it. "So you say your master is s-sick, but you don't know with what…g-guess we should take the suits, yeah?"
Sep 27 15:13:09 * Bright is now known as Chuckie
Sep 27 15:13:11 <PaulS_laptop> "yup"
Sep 27 15:13:30 <E4D> Jason starts to pet him, then thinks better of it. "Hello, canine." He nod at Alice.
Sep 27 15:13:34 <E4D> "Probably best."
Sep 27 15:14:16 <E4D> "I dunno. MOPP will be fine. Can you bring mine?"
Sep 27 15:14:37 <Maddy> "Yea." she grabs the necessary things and head back.
Sep 27 15:14:42 <Chuckie> "I'm chuckie, I'm a good dog!"
Sep 27 15:14:52 <PaulS_laptop> John steps off to get his suit, donning it as he returns
Sep 27 15:14:56 <MisterFlames> "No suit for me." Midnight says softly. And she considers that it might be a little late for suits, since they've got the dog right here from his master.
Sep 27 15:15:02 <Chuckie> He seems to be thickening out a bit, looking more bull mastiff.
Sep 27 15:15:33 <Rights> ~All we need now is Stuart Little and possibly a macaw.~ THe ghost comments to Midnight as she drifts by.
Sep 27 15:16:30 * Chuckie twitches, going still. His nose sniffs about, his eyes shifting back and forth.
Sep 27 15:16:47 <E4D> Jason pulls his on. "Just avoid as much direct contact as possible. He shrugs back into his gear after donning the suit, and pulls a small surgical mask from the IFAK. "Come here, Midnight."
Sep 27 15:17:49 <E4D> "I gotcha covered."
Sep 27 15:19:02 * E4D is now known as Dodridge
Sep 27 15:19:02 * Notify: E4D is offline (SCP and Related Channels).
Sep 27 15:19:02 * Notify: Dodridge is online (SCP and Related Channels).
Sep 27 15:20:06 <Maddy> "So should wee walk or drive?"
Sep 27 15:20:08 <MisterFlames> ~I still think of this as me and my funny monkey sidekicks at times,~ Midnight replies to Ghost.
Sep 27 15:20:34 <MisterFlames> Midnight goes over to Jason, "It's a little late for me. Chuckie licked me."
Sep 27 15:21:12 <MisterFlames> "But nothing viral should affect me, if the human is sick. Bacterial, we can deal with."
Sep 27 15:21:50 <Dodridge> "We can wash that. Inhalation and mucus membranes are the biggest hazard." He kneels, cupping the mask around Midnight's face, and doubliong the ealastic band into a cross around her ears. "There ya go!"
Sep 27 15:22:08 * Chuckie peers at Midnight. "Cat looks weird."
Sep 27 15:22:21 <MisterFlames> "Right…"
Sep 27 15:23:06 <Maddy> "I've s-still got my vet kits, s-so don't worry girly. I c-can help you out."
Sep 27 15:23:11 <Dodridge> "I gave her a mask." He pulls his own field mask on, a military model. "Like this one."
Sep 27 15:23:26 <Chuckie> "Weird." Chuckie nods his head.
Sep 27 15:23:35 <Dodridge> "Now… what's going on, Chuckie?" ~I can't believe I'm asking this.~
Sep 27 15:23:51 * Chuckie jumps to his feet, and runs to the west. "This way!"
Sep 27 15:24:52 <MisterFlames> Midnight twirls her tail and follows. ~I feel ridiculous.~
Sep 27 15:25:17 <PaulS_laptop> John takes up a position behind Midnight
Sep 27 15:25:23 <PaulS_laptop> he rattles as he walks
Sep 27 15:25:27 <Maddy> Alice follows along.
Sep 27 15:25:43 <Dodridge> Jason brings up the drag.
Sep 27 15:26:07 <MisterFlames> "At least it's not the Cone of Shame."
Sep 27 15:26:16 * Soulless has quit (Ping timeout)
Sep 27 15:26:30 * Chuckie runs for a bit, doublign back to make sure they're following, before he leads them to a set of doors in the sand, metal doors locked open, leading down into the darkness.
Sep 27 15:27:29 <Maddy> "…huh…"
Sep 27 15:27:31 <Dodridge> "The cone of shame?" His voice is incredibly muffled.
Sep 27 15:28:02 * Chuckie goes on point. "My master is down th-"… "I do not like the cone of shame."
Sep 27 15:28:40 <Maddy> "The cone they put on a-animals to kkeep them from licking their s-stitches."
Sep 27 15:29:09 <Dodridge> Jason reaches up to turn on Oxide's helmet light, before mentally kicking himself, then flicks on his rifle's taclight, waving it down, trying to see what's down below.
Sep 27 15:29:46 <Chuckie> Stairs descend into the gloom. Looks like a typical secret labatory hallway, the white walls, the long corridor, the doors… funny, it almost looks like a Foundation base.
Sep 27 15:29:48 <MisterFlames> Midnight goes to the door, and growls, "I can't smell anything with this mask on."
Sep 27 15:29:59 <Maddy> "Man…this takes me back."
Sep 27 15:30:17 <Dodridge> "The *fuck*."
Sep 27 15:30:42 <Maddy> "He s-said his master was a g-genius. I didn't think he m-mean mad scientist genius."
Sep 27 15:30:52 <Dodridge> "I got point. John, behind me. Alice? Midnight? want to make sure nothing fucks us in the ass?"
Sep 27 15:31:11 <PaulS_laptop> John flicks his taclight on. "You know, this looks familiar"
Sep 27 15:31:19 <MisterFlames> "Something interesting, then…" Midnight says, "And talking dog would imply genius. Right, Jason."
Sep 27 15:31:26 <Dodridge> Jason advances down the stairs slowly, pausing at each one to see if there's anything audible.
Sep 27 15:31:48 * Chuckie heads down the stairs. His eyes begin to glow in the darkness, letting him see where he's going. He pauses to sniff at doors, but keeps going deeper.
Sep 27 15:31:57 <Maddy> "Of c-course."
Sep 27 15:32:07 * Soulless (~ude.olaffub.tenser.EF9AE1DD-CRInys|sselluoS#ude.olaffub.tenser.EF9AE1DD-CRInys|sselluoS) has joined #afteraction
Sep 27 15:32:46 <PaulS_laptop> John takes up behind Jason. He feels foolish for having left the flamethrower behind.
Sep 27 15:33:07 <Maddy> "Chuckie…a-are there any other…things your master created in here?"
Sep 27 15:33:13 <Dodridge> Jason follows the dog warily, leaving a fair bit of space between them.
Sep 27 15:34:00 <MisterFlames> Midnight follows along, tail up and alert.
Sep 27 15:34:02 <Chuckie> "Oh no no no… They all left when the Master got sick!"
Sep 27 15:34:26 <Maddy> "…lovely."
Sep 27 15:34:44 <PaulS_laptop> behind a mask, John's eyebrow raises
Sep 27 15:34:50 <MisterFlames> "Not worrisome at all." Cats can do sarcasm, apparently.
Sep 27 15:35:09 <Dodridge> "What KIND of things, Chuckie?"
Sep 27 15:35:29 <Chuckie> As he goes deeper, there begin to be signs of struggle. Doors ripped open, metal torn apart like paper. There is, however, no sign of bodies or blood. Finally, he comes to a final door, which stands half open. Inside is the wreckage of a lab, machines and glass tubes, and, the back facing the door, a great big chair. Chuckie runs towards the chair. "Master, master, I brought help!"
Sep 27 15:36:44 <Maddy> "S-sir? We were t-told you were ill…uh…"
Sep 27 15:36:54 <Dodridge> ~I'll get you next time, Gadget! NEEEXT TIIIIME!~
Sep 27 15:37:29 <Dodridge> "Sir? Identify."
Sep 27 15:37:31 <MisterFlames> 4df+4 Anything thinking up ahead?
Sep 27 15:37:32 <Glacon> MisterFlames: Anything thinking up ahead?: 2 (4df+4=-, -, +, -)
Sep 27 15:37:36 <Dodridge> His rifle is at the ready.
Sep 27 15:37:55 <Dodridge> 4df+4 Setting up a shot, maneuver.
Sep 27 15:37:55 <Glacon> Dodridge: Setting up a shot, maneuver.: 6 (4df+4=+, 0, 0, +)
Sep 27 15:38:02 <MisterFlames> "Not getting any thoughts, although that could be from this place."
Sep 27 15:38:05 <Chuckie> Nothign thinking up ahead. Chuckie nudges whoever is in the chair. "Master? Master?"
Sep 27 15:38:38 <MisterFlames> 4df+4 Midnight moves forward, sniffing the air around the Master.
Sep 27 15:38:38 <Glacon> MisterFlames: Midnight moves forward, sniffing the air around the Master.: 3 (4df+4=0, -, -, +)
Sep 27 15:39:25 <Maddy> Alice inches around the edge of the room.
Sep 27 15:39:44 <Chuckie> Smells like a body.
Sep 27 15:39:45 <PaulS_laptop> 4df+4 taking up a position to get a clear line of fire on the chair. maneuver.
Sep 27 15:39:46 <Glacon> PaulS_laptop: taking up a position to get a clear line of fire on the chair. maneuver.: 4 (4df+4=+, -, +, -)
Sep 27 15:40:39 <MisterFlames> ~Jason… this isn't alive.~
Sep 27 15:40:39 <Chuckie> In the chair is an old man, who is obviously several weeks deceased. A metal pole is stick through his chest, as if someone stabbed him with it. Chuckie nudges one of the dead mans hands. "Master? I brought people to help you Master…"
Sep 27 15:40:55 <Maddy> "…oh dear."
Sep 27 15:42:13 <Maddy> Alice shakes her head and looks at Chuckie. "I don't think w-we can help your master…"
Sep 27 15:42:37 <PaulS_laptop> "he's dead."
Sep 27 15:42:58 <MisterFlames> "Chuckie, I'm sorry to say this, but… yes."
Sep 27 15:43:19 * Chuckie whines pittifully. "Bu…but…but… he helped me when i was sick like this… he made me so I could get better!" His tail wags hopefully. "Please help hi-" … the Dog looks at Paul. "dead?"
Sep 27 15:43:44 <PaulS_laptop> [[at john]]
Sep 27 15:44:02 <Dodridge> Jason lowers his rifle, edging over toward the corpse.
Sep 27 15:44:21 <PaulS_laptop> John nods at the dog "means he can't get better no more."
Sep 27 15:44:33 <Maddy> Alice kneels by Chuckie. "I'm sorry boy."
Sep 27 15:44:48 <Dodridge> He slings the weapon, freeing his hands. "Chuckie? I'm gonna look and see what his name was, okay?"
Sep 27 15:44:56 <Chuckie> The corpse does not react. Chuckie sits down, and whines.
Sep 27 15:45:13 <Dodridge> Is there any obvious ID? Nametag? Armband holder?
Sep 27 15:45:19 <MisterFlames> Midnight goes over and snuggles up to the dog.
Sep 27 15:45:47 <Maddy> alice pets the puppy
Sep 27 15:46:15 <PaulS_laptop> John looks over the lab equipment. Anything worth stealing/shiny?
Sep 27 15:46:16 * Chuckie curls up with the Cat, growing smaller. There is an Id tag on his lap. 'Joshua Melroy, Senior researcher, Prometheus Labs'
Sep 27 15:46:37 <Chuckie> Plenty of shiny. Most of it wrecked by something withh eithe r asword, or large claws.
Sep 27 15:46:50 <Dodridge> "Hey Alice?" He picks up the tag and tosses it to his wife.
Sep 27 15:47:02 * Rights has quit (Quit: Leaving.)
Sep 27 15:47:26 <Dodridge> "Didn't know they were into bio."
Sep 27 15:47:39 <Maddy> Alice take a look. "W-what did you think I did there?"
Sep 27 15:48:18 <Dodridge> "Oh. Wel… I meant like *this*." He gestures to the damage around the room.
Sep 27 15:48:26 * Chuckie wags his tail slighty. He's starting to look more like a corgi.
Sep 27 15:48:32 <Maddy> "But shit…I don't even w-want to thing w-what that means is r-running around out there now…"
Sep 27 15:48:50 <PaulS_laptop> "Probably something smart. Smashed most of the shit"
Sep 27 15:48:55 <Chuckie> Oh, and John, since you're looking… there is, in a corner, a file folder. Relatively intact.
Sep 27 15:48:58 <MisterFlames> "Nothing different than already was out there." Midnight points out reasonably.
Sep 27 15:49:04 <Maddy> "True."
Sep 27 15:49:24 <Maddy> "W-what do we do about…" she pats the doggy.
Sep 27 15:49:34 <PaulS_laptop> "this place is a los-oh hello!" John picks up the file folder
Sep 27 15:49:39 <MisterFlames> "Might as well check the place out while we're here. And see to Chuckie, for that."
Sep 27 15:49:53 <PaulS_laptop> "maybe this might be something" he goes to read it
Sep 27 15:52:15 <Chuckie> It's a brief overview of the 'lupus' project. Apparently, Dr. Melroy was interested in creating ta perfect dog, one that could survive any experience, could adapt to any situation that humans might find themselves in. chuckie is the end result of that experimentatgion. One dog who can be any dog, and who can adapt to anything… which includes making himself VERY different. Like, armor, spikes, or more.
Sep 27 15:53:04 <Chuckie> The second part of the file details how other reasearchers were using the Doctors expieriments to create living weapons. Canines who could hunt, kill, and destroy whatevder might be needed. The ultimate hunters.
Sep 27 15:53:15 <MisterFlames> Midnight reads along, tail twitching.
Sep 27 15:53:48 <Dodridge> Jason peeks out the door they came in, then heads over to look at the file himself.
Sep 27 15:53:53 <MisterFlames> "Good thing I like dogs, for the most part."
Sep 27 15:53:59 <PaulS_laptop> "Well, here's why the dog keeps changin' shapes. Part of a project to make an all-purpose dog"
Sep 27 15:54:04 <Dodridge> "Huh. Well, Midnight. Looks like you got some competition."
Sep 27 15:54:31 * Chuckie paddles up to his Masters corpse, and nuzzles it once more. He lets out a long howl…. then walks away. "Goodbye master."
Sep 27 15:54:35 <PaulS_laptop> "Guess we might end up having to hunt the rest of the things"
Sep 27 15:54:40 <MisterFlames> Midnight hops up on Chuckie's back. ~Competition, nothing. I've got a ride.~
Sep 27 15:55:08 <PaulS_laptop> "Any bets on the other guys still being alive?"
Sep 27 15:55:28 <MisterFlames> "None here, either way. But we should look."
Sep 27 15:55:33 <Maddy> Alice smiles at Midnight. "W-well there were those dingos…"
Sep 27 15:55:42 * Chuckie is about the same size as Midnight right now, but he bears the cat well.
Sep 27 15:56:34 <MisterFlames> "Let's give the place a thorough look. They've got power down here. Might be batteries or components we can use with Alicel and Zephyr in mind."
Sep 27 15:56:40 <Dodridge> "Humans?" We could look around. I'm not sure it'd be a good idea to do much more than head to a lockable security shutter, seal the entrance, and leave. Alice? Suggestions?"
Sep 27 15:56:58 <Dodridge> He nods at Midnight. "Shit. Of course."
Sep 27 15:57:24 <PaulS_laptop> "And loot anything not broken."
Sep 27 15:57:34 <Maddy> "Always worth p-poking around a little."
Sep 27 15:57:55 <MisterFlames> "What's the saying. Loot anything that's not nailed down, and if you can pry it off, it's not nailed down?"
Sep 27 15:58:14 <Maddy> "Hehe."
Sep 27 15:59:24 <MisterFlames> "Odd thing here… it smells clean. Might want to make sure there isn't another AI around." Midnight hops off Chuckie, "Well, aside from Chuckie, of course. He *is* an AI, just one that's a dog."
Sep 27 16:00:10 <Dodridge> "All right."
Sep 27 16:00:14 <PaulS_laptop> "Also, that's my line, midnight"
Sep 27 16:00:27 <Maddy> "To b-be fair, Caesar /wasn't/ an AI."
Sep 27 16:00:51 <Maddy> Alice gets up. "C-coming along, Chukie?"
Sep 27 16:00:53 <Dodridge> "Virtual Intelligence, huh?" Grin.
Sep 27 16:01:25 * Chuckie looks confused. "AI?"
Sep 27 16:01:28 <Maddy> "Hehe, guess you c-could call it that. B-but according the the f-files I could access, just a super computer w-with an audio interface."
Sep 27 16:01:42 <PaulS_laptop> John continues rummaging around to find anything lootable. Chemicals(especially certain perchlorates and nitrates), hardware, batteries, anything he can steal.
Sep 27 16:01:49 <PaulS_laptop> "We shoulda brought the LAV"
Sep 27 16:01:55 <Chuckie> Again, that's all up to the GMs
Sep 27 16:02:13 <MisterFlames> "It means a smart made thing. You were made by your master, right?"
Sep 27 16:02:52 <Dodridge> There's not a lot more John can carry, burdened down by the weapon and ammunition as he is.
Sep 27 16:03:19 <Maddy> Alice goes to help loot things!
Sep 27 16:03:22 <Dodridge> He DOES find some of the things he's looking for though. Maybe a half-kilo of each in undisturbed containers that survived the destruction.
Sep 27 16:03:40 <PaulS_laptop> "what have we here?"
Sep 27 16:03:46 <MisterFlames> "Go get Eve, then, and we can haul things out."
Sep 27 16:03:58 <PaulS_laptop> He scoops up each container and dumps them into pockets
Sep 27 16:04:09 <PaulS_laptop> "I found oxidizers!"
Sep 27 16:04:22 <Dodridge> Alice locates the remnants of a security station.
Sep 27 16:05:12 <MisterFlames> Midnight walks around, looking to see if there's anything still living here. Food supplies might be of interest, too.
Sep 27 16:06:15 <Chuckie> Nothing alive… probably a lot of dog food in cans.
Sep 27 16:06:23 <Dodridge> Inside a number of shattered lockers are four M67s, a quartet of concussion grenades, an M16A4, an M9A1, a pair of incendiary grenades, and two intact first aid kits, apparently for combat trauma.
Sep 27 16:06:38 <Maddy> "!"
Sep 27 16:07:02 <Maddy> "Jason, l-look what I fouuund!" Alice is proud!
Sep 27 16:07:53 <PaulS_laptop> Now he moves to look for Hexamine.
Sep 27 16:08:04 <Dodridge> Jason wanders in. «Midnight? How are ya?»
Sep 27 16:08:21 <PaulS_laptop> "What'd you find, Alice?"
Sep 27 16:08:36 <Maddy> "Boom." She grins.
Sep 27 16:08:44 <Dodridge> "Bunch of grenades, a few shootin' irons, and some medical shit."
Sep 27 16:09:05 <MisterFlames> «I'm fine. Nothing else alive here, but there's plenty of dog food. I think Chuckie managed to get into them without a can opener.»

Sep 27 16:09:46 <PaulS_laptop> "I found some shit for some specialty projects. Trying to find hexamine, nitric acid and a few other things now"
Sep 27 16:10:19 <Maddy> Alice hefts what she can, assuming Jason's going to help carry some, if he's a gentlman.
Sep 27 16:10:57 * Chuckie has quit (Ping timeout)
Sep 27 16:11:04 <PaulS_laptop> "if I can find some of this shit, we'll have even more boom"

Sep 27 16:11:06 <Dodridge> Midnight's easily able to locate the canteen by following signs. It's still fairly intact, with some obvious damage to a number of reefers in back, with a few refrigerators and freezers miraculously left standing.
Sep 27 16:11:34 * chuckie runs out, and comes running back dragging a wagon which he has harnessed himself to. Apparently, he's done this before. "I can help!"
Sep 27 16:11:47 <Dodridge> And of course he is. Jason takes the pair of weapons and the IFAKs, cramming them into the MOPP suit's massive cargo pockets.
Sep 27 16:12:14 <Dodridge> Alice, roll perception.
Sep 27 16:13:58 <Maddy> 4df+3
Sep 27 16:13:59 <Glacon> Maddy: 3 (4df+3=0, +, 0, -)
Sep 27 16:14:03 <Dodridge> "All right, Chuckie." Jason places the weapons into the wagon.
Sep 27 16:14:46 <Dodridge> On her way out of the room, Alice catches sight of *MOTHERLOAD*.
Sep 27 16:15:03 <Maddy> A MOTHERLOAD of what? Pray tell.
Sep 27 16:15:26 <Dodridge> There's a SMAW, 2 rockets, and a set of NVGs!

Sep 27 16:17:57 <MisterFlames> «Found the canteen. Refrigerators and freezers, intact and with power.»
Sep 27 16:18:33 <MisterFlames> «Doubt the food in the refrigerators is still good, but the freezers might have things.»
Sep 27 16:19:45 * ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dexanote
Sep 27 16:21:22 <Dodridge> Jason picks the assault weapon up, looking for the SL3-complete set that should be nearby.
Sep 27 16:21:43 <Dodridge> "Aha!" He scoops up a lanyard and attaches it, slinging it over his back.

Sep 27 16:22:37 <Dexanote> Shank fades in, before Jason.
Sep 27 16:23:04 <Maddy> Shank finds himself in a underrground base thing. "Hi Shank."
Sep 27 16:23:14 <Dexanote> "… Eh. Fuck's this?"

Sep 27 16:27:45 <Dexanote> "… Aight."
Sep 27 16:28:54 <Tom90deg> «Eh? Someone need some help?»

Sep 27 16:30:00 <Maddy> Zoea doesnt know where the team is.
Sep 27 16:30:21 <Dodridge> «Yeah. We need arms and backs. Check west of the hotel's location. I'll be waving me arms.»
Sep 27 16:30:56 <Dodridge> Jason backtracks the short distance to the surface, and stands there, waving his arms. He's in full anti-contamination gear.
Sep 27 16:31:07 <Tom90deg> «Right then, I'll be there.?
Sep 27 16:31:26 <Tom90deg> Zoe heads out and with a slight grin, starts to sneak over to Jason

Sep 27 16:32:36 <Dodridge> She still doesn't surprise him, because it's a wide-open area, and he can see her as she approaches.
Sep 27 16:32:56 <Dexanote> Should be noted that Shank's body is quite crinkly, a good percentage of his body dead or dying. The monitor-head's pretty damaged too.
Sep 27 16:33:34 <Dodridge> He's *slightly* spooked by her rapid approach, though. Odd that someone could move that fast so quietly.
Sep 27 16:35:40 <Dodridge> "How much can you carry?
Sep 27 16:36:28 <Dodridge> «Alice? Shank's lookin' pretty fucked up. Think there might be anything here we could use to put him back together? Hydroponics section or anything?»
Sep 27 16:36:46 <Dexanote> "I'll br aight, just get us outta 'ere."
Sep 27 16:37:29 <MisterFlames> «I'll look around for something of that nature, Jason.»
Sep 27 16:38:05 <Dexanote> "… Puns."
Sep 27 16:39:00 <Dodridge> "She's just gonna look for maybe some greenery or saplings or something. Nothing to get bent out of shape about."
Sep 27 16:39:03 <Maddy> «If not, there's t-the garden outside the motel. W-willow trees and i saw a t-truly m-massive rose bush out b-back.»
Sep 27 16:39:19 <Dodridge> «Oh, shit.» "You hear that, Shank?"
Sep 27 16:39:22 <Dexanote> He nods.
Sep 27 16:39:28 <Maddy> «Like, as b-big as me.»
Sep 27 16:39:37 <Maddy> Alice isn't very big.
Sep 27 16:39:42 <Dodridge> "We ain't stuck here. We're just pillaging the place."
Sep 27 16:40:21 <MisterFlames> «Just no horned helmets for the cat. The radio, collars, and mask are more than enough»
