Oct 02 22:35:13 <Salmander> It's a bird
Oct 02 22:35:18 <E4D> Redd makes the sproingy leap, but comes down on a flagpole.
Oct 02 22:35:19 <Salmander> It's a plan

Oct 02 22:36:41 <E4D> His radio slips out of a pocket, tumbling away before he can catch it.
Oct 02 22:38:17 <E4D> How will he ever escape this precarious situation or notify the Convoy of his predicament?
Oct 02 22:38:41 <Salmander> Redd becomes the stalker of the night
Oct 02 22:38:58 <Salmander> He is not the hero the convoy deserves, but the one it needs
Oct 02 22:39:28 <Salmander> Even as he appears to be rather intimately tangled with the flag, he knows his options
Oct 02 22:40:26 <Salmander> "Fuckin' fuckers I'm stuck. HELP!"
Oct 02 22:40:33 <Dexa> Shank walks by.
Oct 02 22:40:37 <Dexa> He looks up at Redd.
Oct 02 22:40:41 <Dexa> He walks away.
Oct 02 22:41:41 <Ragazzo> Dusty strolls by.
Oct 02 22:41:45 <Ragazzo> "Hmmm."
Oct 02 22:41:48 <Salmander> He grabs onto the edge of the flag and begins to unravel it
Oct 02 22:42:14 <Salmander> He ties one end to the flagpole and keeps unraveling
Oct 02 22:42:32 <Ragazzo> "Looks like you're…." Dusty pats himself down for sunglasses.
Oct 02 22:43:05 <Ragazzo> "Eh. Forget it."
Oct 02 22:43:13 <Ragazzo> Dusty has no sunglasses.
Oct 02 22:43:16 <Ragazzo> "Need help?"
Oct 02 22:43:26 <Salmander> "Nah."
Oct 02 22:43:36 <Soulless> Alicel looks up at Redd on a flagpole. He approaches the flagpole, still watching.
Oct 02 22:43:42 <Soulless> This is entertaining.
Oct 02 22:43:54 <Ragazzo> "You're stuck on a flagpole, friend."

Oct 02 22:44:13 <Salmander> Even as he speaks he grabs onto the other end of the flag and unravels it, untangling himself. He shimmies down it like a rope.
Oct 02 22:44:22 <E4D> Nearby, something dark and evil perks up its ears.

Oct 02 22:45:21 <Salmander> He takes out his sewing kit and begins to tie together his wound. He has no time for silly trifles like being aware of his surroundings.

Oct 02 22:46:04 <Salmander> heh
Oct 02 22:47:09 <E4D> A large, black dog flies through the air inches between Dusty and Alicel, landing and spinning where it stands, growling fiercely at the group, drool spattering the ground below it.
Oct 02 22:47:20 <Ragazzo> "Jesus christ!"
Oct 02 22:47:33 <Soulless> Alicel gets out his knife and throws it at the dog's skull.

Oct 02 22:47:41 * MartinSage is strolling on the far side in patrol, and pathing back towards the flagpole.
Oct 02 22:47:47 <Salmander> Redd whistles and keeps sewing.

Oct 02 22:47:50 <Glacon> E4D: Dog skull.: 0 (4df+4=-, -, -, -)
Oct 02 22:48:20 <E4D> The knife embeds itself firmly in the thing's head, and it drops in a heap, crumpling where it stood.
Oct 02 22:48:29 <Ragazzo> "Well…"
Oct 02 22:48:33 <Ragazzo> "Good work."

Oct 02 22:50:06 <E4D> Dusty's keen eyes spot a thick, oily black fluid seeping from the wound and pooling beneath the corpse.
Oct 02 22:50:23 * MartinSage now turns towards the front of the building, walking. He sees Redd stuck on a flagpole, shakes his head, and starts walking towards it.
Oct 02 22:50:30 <E4D> The ground smokes and sizzles where it touches, wisps of smoke floating up.
Oct 02 22:50:37 <Salmander> Redd is no longer on the flagpole
Oct 02 22:50:52 <Ragazzo> "Back up everyone, please."
Oct 02 22:50:59 <MartinSage> Redact that.
Oct 02 22:51:13 <Soulless> Alicel steps back three steps, a new knife already in his hand. "Is it dead?"
Oct 02 22:51:15 <Ragazzo> Dusty pulls on his gloves, and pulls out some vials.
Oct 02 22:51:19 <E4D> Black flame roils up a moment later where the fluid stands, still spreading.
Oct 02 22:51:26 <Salmander> The hat nods and Redd walks away, still sewing.
Oct 02 22:51:26 <Ragazzo> "I'd say so, but first…"
Oct 02 22:51:28 * MartinSage is walking towards the front of the building now, along the other side, hearing people talking.
Oct 02 22:51:32 <Ragazzo> "Back up further."
Oct 02 22:51:36 <Ragazzo> Dusty backpedals.
Oct 02 22:51:57 <Soulless> Alicel steps back three more steps.
Oct 02 22:51:58 <Ragazzo> «We need an extinguisher by the flagpole.»
Oct 02 22:52:18 * MartinSage blinks hearing the statement and heads over to that side, peering over at them below.
Oct 02 22:52:24 <MartinSage> "What the fuck did you light on fire now?"
Oct 02 22:52:28 <Soulless> "Maybe stabbing it in the skull was a bad idea…"
Oct 02 22:52:29 <Salmander> "Good luck. I don't do well with fire or staining materials." You can hear Redd's whistling disappear into the street.
Oct 02 22:52:32 <E4D> A malevolent looking form takes shape within the flame as the fluid flows up around the body, molding itself, writhing, boiling.
Oct 02 22:53:08 <Ragazzo> «Cancel that, just get everyone here.»
Oct 02 22:53:09 <MartinSage> "Oh. Fuck."
Oct 02 22:53:15 <Ragazzo> «Looks like it's fight time.»
Oct 02 22:53:23 <E4D> A vaguely humanoid-looking form is left as the liquid stops moving, four points of white, silvery light visible in the head.
Oct 02 22:53:35 <MartinSage> «Incident out front, looks like a shapeshifting type of hostile or something.»
Oct 02 22:53:39 <E4D> The flames have not subsided, and grow in intensity.
Oct 02 22:53:57 <Soulless> Alicel steps from the flames. He's already been on fire once today. NOPENOPENOPE
Oct 02 22:54:14 <Ragazzo> Dusty backpedals, but also flings an empty vial at the things face.
Oct 02 22:54:19 <Ragazzo> 4df Throw!

Oct 02 22:54:43 <E4D> There's no heat coming from the thing, but the conflagration grows, spreading up the side of the adjacent building, and climbing the flagpole. The vial is caught in the air, floating.
Oct 02 22:54:57 <Dexa> Shank appears near the group, glaring at the thing.
Oct 02 22:55:06 <E4D> A silvery slit spreads across its face, curling into a grin.
Oct 02 22:55:09 <Dexa> "Whaz all this then…?"
Oct 02 22:55:19 * Bright has quit (Ping timeout)
Oct 02 22:55:23 <E4D> Shank, mental defense.

Oct 02 22:56:55 <Dexa> There are sparks of orange and red, then purple
Oct 02 22:56:58 <E4D> Two arms split from the side of the thing, as it reaches out, testing its form.
Oct 02 22:57:17 <Ragazzo> "Alicel, grab shank, and dump him somewhere."
Oct 02 22:57:21 <Dexa> Shank's arms mimic its movement
Oct 02 22:57:22 <E4D> It raises its right arm to its side, splaying out a set of 8 digits.
Oct 02 22:57:33 <Soulless> Alicel grabs Shank and tries to pull him away.
Oct 02 22:57:38 <Dexa> Shank's right arm raises and splits into 8 digits.

Oct 02 22:58:46 <Ragazzo> "Run the hell away, Alicel. Forget shank."
Oct 02 22:58:58 <Soulless> Alicel jumps and backs away. Oh Fuck.
Oct 02 22:59:01 <Ragazzo> «Where the /fuck/ are you guys!?»
Oct 02 22:59:17 <Dexa> ««< here we are »»>
Oct 02 22:59:18 <E4D> It flings Alicel against the building.
Oct 02 22:59:20 <Salmander> Redd dropped his radio lololol
Oct 02 22:59:30 <Dexa> Shank's body flings the robot against the building
Oct 02 22:59:51 <Soulless> Do I have to roll physical defense?

Oct 02 23:00:17 <Dexa> ««< such small things »»>
Oct 02 23:00:31 <Soulless> Alicel makes a nice alicel-shaped hole in the wall. His fake skin is melted and his caraprice isn't looking much better.
Oct 02 23:00:42 <E4D> There's a bright, silovery flash as the thing dissipates, burning away into a black cloud that floats away on a light breeze. Shank drops to the ground.
Oct 02 23:00:58 <Ragazzo> Dusty shields his eyes.
Oct 02 23:01:01 <Dexa> The body is limp, as the roses wither
Oct 02 23:01:03 <Ragazzo> "Jesus."
Oct 02 23:01:21 <Ragazzo> Dusty ignores shank, and with his gloves, grabs Alicel and hauls the bot up.
Oct 02 23:01:29 <Ragazzo> "You with me still?"
Oct 02 23:01:37 <Ragazzo> "Shank, you dead, or what?"
Oct 02 23:01:41 <Soulless> Alicel gets up with the help of Dusty. "Yes. I am fine." One of his eyeballs rolls out.
Oct 02 23:01:45 <E4D> There's a wrenching, tearing sound as the flagpole curls in on itself, weaving into an infinity symbol.
Oct 02 23:02:06 <Salmander> Redd comes back, stitched up, although his colour appears to have faded slightly. "Good job guys."
Oct 02 23:02:09 <Ragazzo> "What the fuck is all this."

Oct 02 23:03:16 <Dexa> the scarecrow twitches
Oct 02 23:03:30 <Dexa> "hhhhh…"
Oct 02 23:03:31 <Soulless> Alicel pockets his eye. "Is Shank alright?" He seems more concerned about Shank than his own well-bring.

Oct 02 23:03:44 <Ragazzo> "He's fine."
Oct 02 23:03:47 <E4D> He'd recognize the four, close-set points of light from the photo on Jason's laptop.
Oct 02 23:04:00 <Ragazzo> "Probably a bit fucked up from being controlled."
Oct 02 23:04:23 <Soulless> "Controlled? Is that even possible?"
Oct 02 23:04:32 <E4D> The dog twitches.
Oct 02 23:04:46 <Ragazzo> Dusty leans down.
Oct 02 23:05:05 <Ragazzo> 4df+6 Tapping fwoosh, he incinerates the dogs.

Oct 02 23:06:02 <E4D> It growls, low and unmistakably angry.
Oct 02 23:06:06 <Salmander> "Why the fuck didja try that Dusty."
Oct 02 23:06:07 <Ragazzo> "Fuck!"
Oct 02 23:06:11 <Soulless> "We need to get Shank and leave."
Oct 02 23:06:14 <Ragazzo> "Everyone back!"
Oct 02 23:06:19 <E4D> The sound grows in volume and intensity.
Oct 02 23:06:19 <Soulless> «Is anyone there? Help!»
Oct 02 23:06:24 <Ragazzo> Dusty grabs shank and hauls ass away.
Oct 02 23:06:29 <Dexa> The burning pumpkin face ignites on Shank.
Oct 02 23:06:33 <Dexa> "Get. Off."
Oct 02 23:06:35 <E4D> It pushes itself shakily off the ground, one leg collapsing as it stands.
Oct 02 23:06:37 <Ragazzo> "Fucking dogs. They're just like god damn wolves."
Oct 02 23:06:49 <Dexa> Shank stands, the Scythe whirling to his hand.
Oct 02 23:06:54 <E4D> Flesh peels back from its face, leaving a frightful visage as the jaw works open and closed.
Oct 02 23:06:59 <Dexa> "You killed me roses."
Oct 02 23:07:02 <E4D> The eyes pop and run down the bone.
Oct 02 23:07:03 <Soulless> Alicel stumbles backwards.
Oct 02 23:07:08 <E4D> It turns to face Dusty.

Oct 02 23:11:43 <Dexa> Shank's thrown, tumbling and landing on his feet.
Oct 02 23:11:56 <E4D> More flesh drops away as the thing moves, consuming itself with every action.
Oct 02 23:12:18 <Soulless> Alicel goes by shank, looking bad but his internals aren't harmed. He grabs Shank's arm and drags them away from this thing.
Oct 02 23:12:34 <E4D> It looks back at Shank as the last of its tendons burn away, melting down into black liquid and settling into the dirt.

Oct 02 23:16:33 <Dexa> He doubles back for a sec to grab Redd's radio

Oct 02 23:24:16 <Soulless> He finally makes it back after a while of stumbling and fumbling. «Jason, if you are here, I will have to report to you something.»

Oct 02 23:27:20 <Tom90deg> Zoe is still on the roof, practiceing. She is oblivlous to the excitement on the ground.

Oct 02 23:28:40 <Salmander> Redd silently appears on the roof. "Y'know I hate fire."
Oct 02 23:29:50 <Tom90deg> Zoe spins, sticking her sword under Redd's hat. "You know, you shoudn't surprize someone spinning around with swords."
Oct 02 23:29:52 <Dexanote> «Not something, THAT thing.»
Oct 02 23:30:27 <Soulless> «The thing that possessed John. There was the same fire.»
Oct 02 23:31:09 <Tom90deg> Zoe steps back, starting her form again. "WE had some problems with fire?"
Oct 02 23:31:15 <Salmander> Redd takes off his hat and begins pacing. "Well, toots, when you have no head it's not easy to use one."

Oct 02 23:33:06 <Salmander> Redd stand at the edge of the roof and looks out over the town. "Flyin' skulls might interest Shank."

Oct 02 23:35:09 <Tom90deg> "The knife I got from Jason though, so it's not as good of a story."
Oct 02 23:35:21 <Soulless> Alicel staggers over to Eve and opens it up for his shit for repairs.
Oct 02 23:35:41 <Salmander> "Whereza ring?"
Oct 02 23:35:59 <Tom90deg> "Heh, on my hand, where do you keep rings?" Zoe holds out her hand, showing her ring.

Oct 02 23:37:34 <Soulless> He grabs his bag of shit and stumbles inside the hotel and to the conference room to do his repairs. He practically jams himself into the socket and starts working.
Oct 02 23:37:42 <Salmander> Redd puts up his gloves, a bit big for any ring size. "In my pockets."
Oct 02 23:38:01 <Tom90deg> "Heh, well, I supose you would."
Oct 02 23:38:37 <Ragazzo> Dusty hurries back to where the fight /was/, a molotov in his hand.
Oct 02 23:38:40 <Ragazzo> "Oh."
Oct 02 23:38:45 <Ragazzo> He goes to put it back.
Oct 02 23:38:58 <Soulless> «Dusty, coudl you come to the conferrence room in the hotel? I need a new skin.»

Oct 02 23:39:12 <Ragazzo> «Uh…yeah.»
Oct 02 23:39:19 <Ragazzo> «What happened to the dog?»
Oct 02 23:39:25 <Tom90deg> "Dusty got a hat too, dunno what happened to that."
Oct 02 23:39:46 <Soulless> «I will explain once you are here.»
Oct 02 23:40:44 <Ragazzo> «Right…»
Oct 02 23:40:56 <Ragazzo> Dusty toddles off the conference room.
Oct 02 23:40:58 <Salmander> "I only have one hat."
Oct 02 23:41:50 <Ragazzo> Dusty arrives in the conference room.
Oct 02 23:41:50 <Soulless> Alicel waves. He's repairing his caraprice and a joint in his leg.
Oct 02 23:42:15 <Ragazzo> He looks over the damage to Alicel's existing skin.
Oct 02 23:42:15 <Rights> Dusty can see that the ghost is hovering around Alicel, watching him repair himself
Oct 02 23:42:20 <Ragazzo> "…."
Oct 02 23:42:21 <Tom90deg> "Heh, yah, but it's a nice had."
Oct 02 23:42:26 <Soulless> "Shank got possessed by something. I got hurt. It turned into a large humanoid fireball, as far as I could tell."
Oct 02 23:42:29 <Ragazzo> "You're such a voyeur, ghost."
Oct 02 23:42:37 <Soulless> "Ghost is around?"
Oct 02 23:42:42 <Salmander> "I get a bit tired of it. Sometimes I consider changin' it."
Oct 02 23:42:52 <E4D> Jason's on the roof.
Oct 02 23:43:02 <Salmander> "Eventually I'll have to, it's hard to sew a hat."
Oct 02 23:43:06 <E4D> He's eating a mushu chicken taco.
Oct 02 23:43:09 <Ragazzo> "Ok."
Oct 02 23:43:13 <Soulless> "Shank tried to attack it. It was ineffective. We ran after that."
Oct 02 23:43:19 <Tom90deg> "Hm…Well, there's probaly somewhere you can get one."
Oct 02 23:43:22 <Dexanote> Shank walks to him. The roseplant's grey and whithered.
Oct 02 23:43:27 <Ragazzo> "I'll go make a new skin in a bit…you just /ran?"
Oct 02 23:43:29 <Dexanote> "The FUCK were you?"
Oct 02 23:43:31 <Tom90deg> "What kinda hat do you want?"
Oct 02 23:43:35 <Ragazzo> "Where'd the dog go?"
Oct 02 23:43:37 <Soulless> Alicel is sticking his eyeball back in.
Oct 02 23:43:44 <Salmander> "I'm thinkin'…"
Oct 02 23:43:54 <Soulless> "It collapsed into slime or dust or something."
Oct 02 23:44:06 <Ragazzo> "Ok."
Oct 02 23:44:06 <Soulless> "I am not sure. I only had one eye at the time."
Oct 02 23:44:13 <Ragazzo> "I'm going to get samples."
Oct 02 23:44:13 <Salmander> Redd props up a pant leg against the roof's edge. "A cowboy hat."
Oct 02 23:44:19 <Ragazzo> "You'll have your new skin shortly."
Oct 02 23:44:27 <Soulless> Installing his new eye. "Thank you Dusty."
Oct 02 23:44:30 <Tom90deg> "Stelstons are cool."
Oct 02 23:44:34 <Tom90deg> "You should get a bow tie."
Oct 02 23:45:08 <Salmander> "Only if I get a tophat."
Oct 02 23:45:10 <E4D> "Who?"
Oct 02 23:45:27 <Ragazzo> Dusty goes to look for the bone dog's remains.
Oct 02 23:45:32 <Tom90deg> "Heh, naw, a bow tie and a stelston. or a fez…Fezes are cool."
Oct 02 23:45:56 <E4D> The bones are easy enough to find.
Oct 02 23:46:03 <Salmander> "I hope you're kiddin'. For your sake."
Oct 02 23:46:05 <Maddy> Alice is still on the roof as well but she's fallen back sleep, leaning onthe edge.
Oct 02 23:46:27 <Soulless> "Ghost, if you are here, I wonder if you can move things."
Oct 02 23:46:34 <Ragazzo> Dusty gathers the bones in a sack, and then separates whatever else is left into flasks and vials.
Oct 02 23:46:36 <Tom90deg> "Pssh, a goof Fez is the best."
Oct 02 23:46:48 <Ragazzo> He then carts everything back to analyze the shit out of.
Oct 02 23:46:57 <Ragazzo> Back to his room.
Oct 02 23:47:06 <Tom90deg> Zoe goes over and pokes Alice.

Oct 02 23:48:18 <E4D> "I can't do much if I don't know anything is going on."
Oct 02 23:48:35 <Dexanote> "That thing took control of me. Thissis why you shouldn't leave tha robot or Dusty out alone."
Oct 02 23:48:36 <Tom90deg> Zoe steps back from Alice's flailing. "Bit tense Alice?"
Oct 02 23:49:07 <Maddy> "Oh s-sorry…no I'm f-fine. I just don't t-take well to b-being woken up."
Oct 02 23:49:07 <E4D> I don't LET them out alone.
Oct 02 23:49:20 <MisterFlames> Midnight is sleeping in her room.
Oct 02 23:49:24 <E4D> "I'm not Hitler. I don't control their actions."
Oct 02 23:49:31 <E4D> Midnight, roll mental defense.

Oct 02 23:50:01 <Maddy> "I do." She points to her sidearm. "I /always/ have a g-gun on me."
Oct 02 23:50:23 <Ragazzo> ~MIDNIGHT?~ Dusty is doing the mental equivalent of shouting.
Oct 02 23:50:37 <Sabitsuki> hitler
Oct 02 23:51:04 <Dexanote> "…" Shank kicks the ledge. "It got me too easy. It coulda killed everythin."
Oct 02 23:51:18 <Salmander> Redd keeps leaning over the roof, not seeming to actually be paying attention to anything.
Oct 02 23:51:35 <E4D> "Thing picked up and LAV like Eve and crushed it without touching it before."
Oct 02 23:51:47 <MisterFlames> ~What?~ Midnight calls out.

Oct 02 23:53:04 <Ragazzo> ~Something weird is going on, could you swing by room. Got the remains of some horrible mutated dog here. I think it was being used by some spirit, or something.~
Oct 02 23:53:22 <MisterFlames> Midnight shakes her head. ~Right… yeah.~
Oct 02 23:53:37 <Ragazzo> *by my
Oct 02 23:54:04 <Dexanote> He groans.
Oct 02 23:54:37 <MisterFlames> The head-shake continues down her body, more akin to a total body shudder. She heads to Dusty's room, but gets out her radio. «Jason, be advised. I suspect some supernatural presence in the area.»
Oct 02 23:54:37 <Soulless> Tinker Tinker Tinker.
Oct 02 23:55:48 <E4D> «Yeah, Midnight, we got that, thanks.» He's not being a smartass.
Oct 02 23:55:48 <Tom90deg> "I mean it wasn't in your hand. Heh, you jerked quite a bit."
Oct 02 23:56:30 <Ragazzo> Dusty is sorting out the remains, piecing the bones together, arranging them as they would if they weren't separate.
Oct 02 23:56:46 <Maddy> "E-even if it were, I have exccelent t-trigger dicipline." she grins "Jason c-can testify t-to how bad I a-am when I f-first wake up."
Oct 02 23:57:03 <MisterFlames> «Sorry, just woke up from a nap, and there was a rather nasty vision.» Midnight moves to join Dusty. "What's going on?"
Oct 02 23:57:08 <Ragazzo> 4df+4 Life science, was this a normal dog once, and if so, how was it changed.

Oct 02 23:57:15 <E4D> As he handles them, they all simultaneously collapse into dust, swirling in a cloud and flowing around the small cat.
Oct 02 23:57:23 <Ragazzo> "Some sort of…"
Oct 02 23:57:27 <Ragazzo> "Fuck!"
Oct 02 23:57:28 <Tom90deg> "Heh, fair enough. I'm not great in the morning either, but I'm more the 'Eeeggh' and roll back over type."
Oct 02 23:57:33 <E4D> Mental defense, Midnight
Oct 02 23:57:59 <Dexanote> "…"

Oct 02 23:58:49 <E4D> They swirl around her, faster and faster, before exploding into a silvery starburst, boiling away into the air.
Oct 02 23:59:00 <Ragazzo> Dusty shields his eyes.
Oct 02 23:59:04 <Ragazzo> "Midnight?"
Oct 02 23:59:13 <MisterFlames> "Okay, things are getting nasty. Give me a moment."
Oct 02 23:59:52 <MisterFlames> 4df+4 Occult maneuver to strengthen mental defense, since she's a Mentalist mage.

Oct 03 00:00:02 <Ragazzo> He nods, casting an eye over what's left, if anything?
Oct 03 00:00:25 <Tom90deg> "So, there was some kinda zombie dog Alice? Know anything bout that?"
Oct 03 00:00:35 <MisterFlames> "Having trouble concentrating," Midnight allows. "What happened? There's a rather nasty presence in the area."
Oct 03 00:01:55 <Ragazzo> "I don't even know…I /think/ it might have been some entity that was around earlier."
Oct 03 00:02:06 <Ragazzo> "The effects are similar."
Oct 03 00:02:29 <Ragazzo> "It messed around with john, took control of him. Did the same to shank."
Oct 03 00:02:54 <MisterFlames> "What entity was this?"
Oct 03 00:03:41 <Ragazzo> "Some sort of…I guess, manifestation. It's something the foundation had locked up, according to jason and the others."
Oct 03 00:03:56 <Ragazzo> He explains what he knows about 333.
Oct 03 00:04:01 <Ragazzo> Which is very little.
Oct 03 00:04:14 <Ragazzo> Just how it works, how it's brought about, etc.
Oct 03 00:05:19 <Ragazzo> "Either way, I don't want to be around here anymore. This is not something we can handle."

Oct 03 00:07:46 <Tom90deg> «Oi guys, what's the story?»
Oct 03 00:08:36 <Soulless> «Something possessed Shank from a black dog, mutated into something horrible, attacked us, then… disappeared.»
Oct 03 00:09:17 <MisterFlames> «Nasty supernatural effect, appears to have mind-warping potential. I was attacked by it.»
Oct 03 00:09:40 <Tom90deg> «You sound allright. Heh, can't beat the cat, eh? So what's the plan?"

Oct 03 00:17:50 <Soulless> Alicel gets onto the roof once he is done his repairs. He has no skin, so he looks pretty creepy, but otherwise he looks pretty fine.
Oct 03 00:18:32 <Soulless> Alicel waves over at Zoe.
Oct 03 00:18:39 <Tom90deg> "Hey Alicel. You look like hell, what happened?"
Oct 03 00:20:01 <Soulless> "Shank attacked me when he was possessed. It melted all of my false skin and broke my carapace. I managed to repair the carapace but without the proper technology I canot make myself new skin."
Oct 03 00:21:16 <Tom90deg> "…I see. Dusty might be able to help, if you know what the fake skin is made of."
Oct 03 00:22:10 <Soulless> "Dusty will be making me some when he is not busy. I am fully functional as I am now, just unpleasant to look at. Apologies. Has anything been amiss here while Shank was being possessed?"
Oct 03 00:22:22 <E4D> «Yes?»
Oct 03 00:23:10 <E4D> «Dusty, could you put that into a memo and file that under "Shit, I already know"?»
