Sep 11 00:58:34 <Ragazzo> "…"
Sep 11 00:58:37 <Gerald> He chuckles.
Sep 11 00:58:43 <Tom90deg> Zoe looks up. "What's that?"
Sep 11 00:59:09 <Ragazzo> "Hopefully not another skull…"
Sep 11 00:59:29 <Dexanote> Shank is like, in Eve.
Sep 11 00:59:33 <DawnyWorks> "I don't know Zoe" Kay shakes her head. "And the correct answer is magical bull shit"
Sep 11 00:59:45 <Gerald> "Most likely some horrific beast bent on our death and dismemberment." Sigh. "It is an event that is being rather frightfully here."
Sep 11 01:00:03 <Gerald> *repeated rather frightfully
Sep 11 01:00:09 <Tom90deg> "Mmm…"
Sep 11 01:01:53 <Tom90deg> "Don't stop and see."
Sep 11 01:02:02 <DawnyWorks> "Not going to"
Sep 11 01:02:15 <Ragazzo> "Still smarter than me, even when your loopy."
Sep 11 01:02:38 <DawnyWorks> "Not hard"
Sep 11 01:02:39 <Tom90deg> Zoe laughs. "That's not too hard…EEeehh…This is really hurting…"
Sep 11 01:03:08 <DawnyWorks> "Remember the 800s you got me, take two of them"
Sep 11 01:03:20 <Sabitsuki> *thump* *thump* *thump* *thump*
Sep 11 01:03:31 <Tom90deg> "Which are those…"
Sep 11 01:03:42 <Tom90deg> Zoe digs around in the box on the floor.
Sep 11 01:03:44 <Salmander> Redd looks back at the beds in the RV. "WHO'S FUCKIN'?"
Sep 11 01:04:00 <DawnyWorks> "White bottle, on top"
Sep 11 01:04:07 <Ragazzo> Dusty looks out the window without opening it.
Sep 11 01:04:13 <E4D> What are the thumps? Running over something?
Sep 11 01:04:16 <Ragazzo> He's trying to see what's up there.
Sep 11 01:04:27 <Ragazzo> If there is somethnig.
Sep 11 01:04:33 <Ragazzo> Assuming they're from above.
Sep 11 01:04:36 <Tom90deg> Zoe grabs it and tries to undo the top, but failing. Damn childproof caps. She reaches back and hands it to Dusty. "Would you?"
Sep 11 01:04:46 <Ragazzo> Dusty nods, popping it open.
Sep 11 01:04:50 <Ragazzo> H hands her two.
Sep 11 01:04:52 <Ragazzo> *He
Sep 11 01:05:04 <Tom90deg> Zoe swallows them down with some water. "Blla."
Sep 11 01:05:21 <Sabitsuki> A wiry set of thick, hairy legs hangs off the side of the roof, 4 of them
Sep 11 01:05:30 <Ragazzo> "…."

Sep 11 01:06:44 <Salmander> Redd notices some large creature lying on top of the vehicle ahead, shrugs, and keeps driving. Fuck that.

Sep 11 01:07:39 <Gerald> "Ah, we are permitted to use radios, yes?"
Sep 11 01:07:42 <Dexanote> "… Hm. Thaz odd."

Sep 11 01:07:57 <Ragazzo> «Can someone shoot whatever the hell is on the roof off?»
Sep 11 01:08:21 <DawnyWorks> «Don't shoot my fucking car»
Sep 11 01:08:24 <Tom90deg> "They'll miss!" Zoe crouches down in her seat.
Sep 11 01:08:35 <Gerald> "See? Some foul beast bent on killing us all. Swerve, dear Kay, and see if you can shake the monster off."
Sep 11 01:08:37 <Salmander> «Yeah, I'm not shoootin' that shit. Good luck.»

Sep 11 01:09:36 <Tom90deg> "Don't want to get shot though…"
Sep 11 01:09:38 <E4D> Motherfucker, PLEASE.

Sep 11 01:11:03 <Salmander> Redd keeps whistling and taps his fingers against the wheel.
Sep 11 01:11:12 <DawnyWorks> «Easy for you to say, I've got a giant ass spider fucking thing on my god damn car»

Sep 11 01:14:54 <E4D> «Uhh, negative, but it's leaking.»
Sep 11 01:15:17 <E4D> «Everyone, bring it to a halt.»
Sep 11 01:15:44 <Maddy> Alice comes to a stop.
Sep 11 01:16:03 <Ragazzo> "Thank god. Now Zoe can get looked at…"
Sep 11 01:16:07 <DawnyWorks> Kay slows to a stop, grabing her med kit and starting to look at Zoe's wound.
Sep 11 01:16:12 <Salmander> Redd does not slam the breaks but instead comes to a nice, easy stop.
Sep 11 01:16:16 <Ragazzo> "And I want to see whatever the fuck is on the roof."
Sep 11 01:16:21 <Gerald> Charon pops open the door and steps out.
Sep 11 01:16:36 <Dexanote> Shank hits the Big Red Button and opens the back door of Eve, stepping out with the Scythe.
Sep 11 01:16:37 <E4D> «Alice, stand by to drop the ramp. Kay, Charon, Zoe, Dusty, when you hear me open fire again, open the rear hatches, bail, and get the fuck up here and into the Eve.»
Sep 11 01:16:38 <Ragazzo> Dusty does the same, while pulling on his cloves.

Sep 11 01:18:08 <Tom90deg> «My arm hurts…»
Sep 11 01:18:09 <Ragazzo> Dusty blinks.
Sep 11 01:18:11 <E4D> «That thing's about to be compromised.»
Sep 11 01:18:14 <Gerald> «….» He quietly stops and doesn't step all the way out.

Sep 11 01:19:25 <Maddy> Alice drops the hatch!
Sep 11 01:19:27 <Ragazzo> Dusty follows.
Sep 11 01:19:35 <Tom90deg> Zoe follows, trying to keep her feet steady.
Sep 11 01:19:38 <Gerald> Charon pops out and runs, legs launching him across the asphalt.
Sep 11 01:19:57 <Tom90deg> Zoe looks back at the car, and whatever was on the roof.
Sep 11 01:20:04 <Ragazzo> As does duusty.

Sep 11 01:20:50 <E4D> Jason looks out over the top. "What the hell's the matter with her?"
Sep 11 01:21:13 <Gerald> "Ah, she was bitten by a flying dog skull. She appears to be in shock, I believe."
Sep 11 01:21:20 <Sabitsuki> Hellfly…but more spider than fly at this point. Bigger, uglier. Multiple sets of compound eyes and mandibles, orange-ish goop for blood. About 12 legs, wing span of about 6 feet.
Sep 11 01:21:36 <Gerald> "Quite the specimen we have killed, though."

Sep 11 01:21:58 <Ragazzo> Dusty helps Zoe into the stryker.
Sep 11 01:22:23 <E4D> Jason climbs out, flipping the plate down. <Alice! Yo! Need you out here! Charon! Driver's seat! Dusty! Driver's seat of Florence!>
Sep 11 01:22:32 <E4D> <Shank! Cover me!>
Sep 11 01:22:36 <Gerald> "Ah, as enjoyable as helping another would be, I am quite certain that our dear medic would attempt to shoot me should I make such an attempt." He moves and hops into the Florence.
Sep 11 01:22:48 <Salmander> Redd continues to watch, flicking the bobble head.
Sep 11 01:22:50 <Maddy> Alice runs out.
Sep 11 01:22:58 <Dexanote> "Aight." Shank moves next to Jason.
Sep 11 01:23:03 <Ragazzo> Dusty gets into florence, glancing back at Zoe worriedly.
Sep 11 01:23:05 <Gerald> Not the florence, dammit, the Eve.
Sep 11 01:23:09 <E4D> <Negative, up here in Eve, Boatman. You're ridin' in style.»
Sep 11 01:23:16 <Tom90deg> Zoe gets into the stryker, and takes a seat, pale and somewhat clammy.
Sep 11 01:23:18 <E4D> Jason advances toward the thing, rifle up.
Sep 11 01:23:22 <Sabitsuki> The bullets seem to have ran the bug through, except for a single rock like object in the stomach. The surface of it is a black color, interspaced with lines of the orange-ish goo, like lava in magma.
Sep 11 01:23:36 <Dexanote> Shank lazily twirls the Scythe.
Sep 11 01:23:37 <Sabitsuki> It is about as big as a human being's head.
Sep 11 01:23:38 <DawnyWorks> Kay thinks about what all she's going to have to do to help Zoe. "Okay, Zoe, I need you to relax a bit…kay?"
Sep 11 01:23:40 <Maddy> Alice follows. "W-what we got here?"
Sep 11 01:23:55 <Ragazzo> "Zoe, you ought to lay down…let Kay look at you…"
Sep 11 01:24:03 <E4D> <I got *no* idea. Never saw any shit like this at 23…>
Sep 11 01:24:10 <Ragazzo> ~Midnight, are you in here?~

Sep 11 01:25:39 <Tom90deg> Zoe nods and lays down on the Stryker foor.
Sep 11 01:25:47 <E4D> <Check 'er out, Alice. Shank, be ready to reap this fuckin' thing.>
Sep 11 01:25:50 <DawnyWorks> Kay smiles at Zoe. "I'm going to take your shoes and belt off, okay?"
Sep 11 01:26:04 <Ragazzo> ~Zoe's hurt. Got bit by something. Can you get into florence?"
Sep 11 01:26:05 <Dexanote> "S'not a thing wit a soul, izzit?"

Sep 11 01:27:20 <Gerald> Charon's waiting for them by the EVE. "I have noted an unusual surge in such beasts since the Fall, and I am not overly sure how the apocalypse would bring about the creation of such things. A curiosity, I must admit."
Sep 11 01:27:54 <Salmander> «Last time I work in fuckin' Australia.»
Sep 11 01:27:59 <Tom90deg> Zoe smiles at Kay and mumbles, "Buy me dinner first…"
Sep 11 01:28:02 <MisterFlames> ~Yeah, I can do that, I think.~ Midnight stretches and yawns, then hops out of Eve. "Wasn't the apocalypse, it was a being."
Sep 11 01:28:22 <Gerald> "Oh? Do tell, dearest kitten?"
Sep 11 01:28:38 <DawnyWorks> "I've already seen your tits, remember?" Kay takes off Zoe's shoes and belt, then starts to clean the wound.
Sep 11 01:28:45 <Ragazzo> "…"

Sep 11 01:29:23 <E4D> <Check out that thing in its stomach? Don't get too close…>
Sep 11 01:29:47 <Dexanote> Shank pokes it with the butt of the Scythe
Sep 11 01:29:55 <Maddy> "It's l-like…a "normal" h-hellfly, b-but…thats a human u-u-uterus.>
Sep 11 01:30:05 <E4D> <Can you get a… what?>
Sep 11 01:30:12 <MisterFlames> "A couple of days after the Event, we encountered a woman. She transformed the arm of one of our people into a wooden version that housed a huge insect. It's likely that wasn't the first time she did it."
Sep 11 01:30:16 <E4D> <That black ball thing?>
Sep 11 01:30:17 <Gerald> "……Well."

Sep 11 01:38:09 <Sabitsuki> The swarm stops about 100 yards out, a single, conscious movement, the entirety of them stopping as one.
Sep 11 01:38:18 <E4D> «We'll talk to 'em from behind 4 inches of steel.»
Sep 11 01:38:21 <Sabitsuki> The buzzing is audible and loud at this point.
Sep 11 01:38:31 <Salmander> Redd waves at the leader.
Sep 11 01:38:44 <Tom90deg> "The bugs stopped….Hehe, I feel nice."
Sep 11 01:38:57 <Gerald> Charon /still/ managed to grab the damn wine.
Sep 11 01:39:41 <Salmander> He rolls down the RV Driver's window.
Sep 11 01:39:46 <E4D> He climbs up top, staring at the swarm.
Sep 11 01:39:56 <MisterFlames> Midnight hops into Florence, and snuggles next to Zoe.
Sep 11 01:40:15 * Rights (~PI.BF0EFC49.1A349E52.3D65DC1F|ahtagA#PI.BF0EFC49.1A349E52.3D65DC1F|ahtagA) has left #afteraction
Sep 11 01:40:17 <Sabitsuki> The lead humanoid dismounts, keeping a grip on the flag, followed and flanked shortly by two 8 foot nothing hulks in black cloth robes, their faces hidden from view.
Sep 11 01:40:21 <Tom90deg> "Kitty…." Zoe cuddles with Midnight, stoned out of her mind.
Sep 11 01:40:45 <Gerald> Charon pokes his head out of the tank.
Sep 11 01:40:49 <Gerald> "……"
Sep 11 01:40:59 <E4D> <God damnit…>
Sep 11 01:41:17 <Gerald> "Willing to speak with a massive army behind him. I will give this man credit, he understands diplomacy."
Sep 11 01:41:34 <Maddy> Alice grits her teeth in the minigun turret.
Sep 11 01:41:37 <E4D> Jason climbs out, hopping off the back of Eve.
Sep 11 01:41:41 <Gerald> He gets /out/ of the tank.
Sep 11 01:41:52 <Gerald> "Ah, Corporal?"
Sep 11 01:42:15 <Sabitsuki> The humanoids advance as a small group…slowly…and there here is, skin as black and ridged as the soot he was probably born in.
Sep 11 01:42:25 <Sabitsuki> Vance Harding.
Sep 11 01:42:44 <Maddy> «Jason, w-what the fuck…>
Sep 11 01:42:54 <Dexanote> "… Hm. Din't 'e die?"
Sep 11 01:43:01 <Gerald> "This is standard negotiation tactics. I would suggest you, as the man in charge of our lovely little group, speak with him in person."
Sep 11 01:43:05 <Dexanote> "… Wait no, nope, nope 'es still round."
Sep 11 01:43:07 <E4D> «Keep guns up, Alice. Be ready to open up.»
Sep 11 01:43:15 * SpaceMao|work has quit (Client exited)
Sep 11 01:43:20 <Maddy> «…right.»
Sep 11 01:43:23 * SpaceMao|work (~PI.251828A.62C17C4A.BBCA417B|criordna#PI.251828A.62C17C4A.BBCA417B|criordna) has joined #afteraction
Sep 11 01:43:25 <E4D> Jason slings his rifle, and steps forward.
Sep 11 01:43:43 <Gerald> "I suggest you bring several sets of muscle with yourself, as well."
Sep 11 01:44:09 <Dexanote> "Or mebbe a bouquet."
Sep 11 01:44:23 <E4D> «Shank? Charon? Alice, screw the minigun. Get behind the biggun.»
Sep 11 01:44:39 <DawnyWorks> «Zoe's stable»
Sep 11 01:44:53 <Gerald> Charon walks up, keeping to Jason's left and several steps behind him.
Sep 11 01:45:04 <Sabitsuki> Vance's eyes are black and featureless, lacking schlera or irises. His skin is some kind of black chitinous chainmail, and where his arm was missing in life, is now a hairy leg of a fly, gripped around the flag.
Sep 11 01:45:06 <MisterFlames> ~Do you need me, Jason?~
Sep 11 01:45:20 <Maddy> <Roger t-that.>
Sep 11 01:45:41 <Sabitsuki> He leans on the flag and looks bored.
Sep 11 01:46:13 <E4D> «Midnight, it'd be appreciated.»
Sep 11 01:46:42 <E4D> He steps forward, looking back briefly at those walking behind him.
Sep 11 01:47:19 <Dexanote> Shank is following, lazily twirling the Scythe still.
Sep 11 01:47:24 <MisterFlames> Midnight slips out from Zoe. "I'll be back, hon. Jason needs me."
Sep 11 01:47:28 <Salmander> Redd sighs and exits the RV, walking behind them, still whistling.
Sep 11 01:47:35 <MisterFlames> Midnight heads to join the parley.
Sep 11 01:47:47 <DawnyWorks> Kay's still in the stryker, kicking the walls now that Midnight's gone"
Sep 11 01:47:48 * Tom90deg has quit (Quit: ~ Trillian Astra - www.trillian.im ~)
Sep 11 01:47:50 <DawnyWorks> -"
Sep 11 01:48:20 <E4D> «Kay? Stand to, Corpsman.»
Sep 11 01:48:37 <E4D> He flips his faceplate up. "What do you want?"
Sep 11 01:48:44 <DawnyWorks> «Copy»
Sep 11 01:48:50 <Gerald> Charon, for once, stays quiet.
Sep 11 01:49:12 <Sabitsuki> He opens his mouth - no tongue. Closes it again, pauses. Then opens it again, as if he'd forgotten how to speak.
Sep 11 01:49:26 <DawnyWorks> Kay grabs her rifle and heads out there.
Sep 11 01:49:37 <MisterFlames> Midnight arrives. "Well, now."
Sep 11 01:49:42 <Sabitsuki> "The one on your vehicle." His voice is familiar, yet far away and modulated.
Sep 11 01:50:04 <Dexanote> "Yeh"
Sep 11 01:50:06 <E4D> "What?"
Sep 11 01:50:31 <Sabitsuki> "The egg. Give it to Us."
Sep 11 01:50:38 <Dexanote> "Aight."
Sep 11 01:50:43 <E4D> "What egg?"
Sep 11 01:50:45 <Dexanote> redact
Sep 11 01:50:47 <Dexanote> Sorry redact
Sep 11 01:52:07 <Sabitsuki> "The one birthed by the mother you murdered." Vance puts strange emphasis on different words.
Sep 11 01:52:30 <Salmander> "Wasn't me."
Sep 11 01:52:51 <E4D> "That we *murdered*."
Sep 11 01:53:29 <Dexanote> "Ta be honest I s'pose this bastard's got a bit of a diffrn't definition of murder than ya blokes."
Sep 11 01:53:44 <Sabitsuki> "She was in her throes. Birthing spasms. You shot her. We felt it. There is no use being stupid or lying."
Sep 11 01:54:17 <Gerald> "Ah, a misunderstanding, it was. What you perceive as birthing spasms, we perceive as an attack upon our persons."
Sep 11 01:54:38 <Sabitsuki> The behemoths behind him stir slightly under the robes, a rippling water-like motion going through the cloth.
Sep 11 01:55:18 <Gerald> Charon stretches his back, arching towards his full height of something a bit over seven feet.
Sep 11 01:55:29 <Dexanote> Shank is over seven feet hunched over
Sep 11 01:55:37 <E4D> "Ain't no one being stupid here. I killed it. And I killed it because of past experience. Haven't had anything but trouble. You want the egg, it's yours. Just tell it us why."
Sep 11 01:56:54 <E4D> He looks at Charon, then Shank. "Midnight?"
Sep 11 01:57:00 <E4D> ~Anything in that egg?~
Sep 11 01:57:03 * DawnyWorks has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
Sep 11 01:58:23 <Sabitsuki> "…Why? Because it is Our property."
Sep 11 01:59:28 <Gerald> "In return for what, if I may ask?"
Sep 11 02:00:09 <Sabitsuki> "You misunderstand. This is not a trade."
Sep 11 02:01:41 <Sabitsuki> "The Queen has deemed that all of your kind be spared for possible interbreeding in the future."
Sep 11 02:01:53 <Gerald> "You bring out an army for this little egg, it must be quite valuable. Even something as simple as allowing us to leave in peace would be acceptable."
Sep 11 02:01:57 <Dexanote> "Thaz kinda gross."
Sep 11 02:02:00 <Dexanote> "… Right?"
Sep 11 02:02:19 <Dexanote> "I dunno really how birthparts work."
Sep 11 02:02:34 <E4D> "Come on, Vance."
Sep 11 02:02:44 <Salmander> Redd begins to back away towards the vehicles.
Sep 11 02:02:45 <E4D> "We're friends. What's so special about the egg?"
Sep 11 02:03:09 * Waxx has quit (Quit: A bear is just a man who made a choice.)
Sep 11 02:05:03 <Sabitsuki> "Friends? The only Jason Dodridge I knew was a passive aggressive asshole with a mate to match." He leans lazily on the flag. "And if you believe this to be even a small part of Our force, you are solely mistaken."
Sep 11 02:05:57 <Sabitsuki> The guardian to the left of him *creaks*, as if he were made of bone, and then buzzes quietly.
Sep 11 02:06:14 <E4D> Jason remembers something, making sure to note it next time he gets a chance. "Get the egg, Shank."
Sep 11 02:06:58 <Dexanote> "… Aight." He goes back, and returns with the egg.
Sep 11 02:07:59 <Sabitsuki> "Put it on the ground."
Sep 11 02:08:13 <Dexanote> He does so, slowly, eyes locked on Vance
Sep 11 02:08:14 <E4D> "See? No harm, no-"
Sep 11 02:08:38 <E4D> Jason begins backing away. "Let's go, Charon. Shank."
Sep 11 02:09:03 <Gerald> Charon follows Jason, keeping an eye on the bugs.
Sep 11 02:09:17 <Dexanote> "…" He turns, taking the Scythe and walking back with them
Sep 11 02:09:45 <Sabitsuki> He looks at the left behemoth, an unspoken word passing between them as it *glides* over, and picks the egg up with a pair of human hands that end in claws.
Sep 11 02:10:07 <Maddy> Alice just watches, waiting.
Sep 11 02:11:03 <Sabitsuki> As the behemoth holds the egg, a second passes, and the swarm goes still.
Sep 11 02:11:20 <Sabitsuki> The buzzing is quiet as the flyers land and do not move.
Sep 11 02:11:47 <Sabitsuki> Vance hisses quietly.
Sep 11 02:11:49 <E4D> He nods, still backing up. «Alice, stand by.»
Sep 11 02:12:01 <Sabitsuki> "…Stillborn."
Sep 11 02:12:14 <E4D> "Not our fault."
Sep 11 02:12:17 <Salmander> Redd backs away further, keeping a glove on the magnum in his pocket.
Sep 11 02:12:47 <Maddy> «Standing by.»
Sep 11 02:12:56 <Sabitsuki> Vance looks at the Right one, and it treads over to the Left, assisting it with the egg as they both lean down carefully and dig a small hole.
Sep 11 02:13:02 <E4D> "Charon, Shank. Get inside." Jason backs the last few feet into the LAV. He closes his faceplate.
Sep 11 02:13:13 <Gerald> Charon gets in.
Sep 11 02:13:29 <Dexanote> Shank glares back at the swarm and gets in. He's glowing red.
Sep 11 02:13:32 <Dexanote> face is
Sep 11 02:13:38 <Salmander> Redd gets inside the RV, starting it up.
Sep 11 02:13:52 <E4D> «Let's the fuck out of here.»
Sep 11 02:13:54 <Sabitsuki> They bury the egg, and…bow respectfully over the grave.
Sep 11 02:14:20 <Maddy> «Yes, l-lets. Get in and we'll go.»
Sep 11 02:14:37 <Dexanote> «Oi Redd get in tha tanks.»
Sep 11 02:14:49 <Sabitsuki> Vance takes the white flag and throws it aside before turning with Thing One and Two, stepping back onto their aerial mounts and flying back in the direction of the platform.
Sep 11 02:15:00 <Gerald> «Another damned faction we will have to be dealing with, no doubt.»
Sep 11 02:15:07 <E4D> «RV's stayin, Redd.»
Sep 11 02:15:22 <Maddy> «Just t-taking the armour.»
Sep 11 02:15:27 <Salmander> «Fuck» Redd gets out and walks over to the Stryker, getting in.
Sep 11 02:15:36 <E4D> «We got everything we need in the armor. Trust me. Grab Kay's shit on your way»
Sep 11 02:15:38 <Sabitsuki> The swarm is very quiet as it turns away, floating and flying back in the direction it came.
