Oct 17 21:15:41 <Dexanote> There's a sudden hum of a motor deep in the powered building, and the sound of metal sliding on metal. A minute or so later… <… uh. Guys. The elevator's working again.>
Oct 17 21:15:56 <Maddy> «That can't possibly be good.»
Oct 17 21:16:01 <Maddy> «Or it could.»
Oct 17 21:16:05 <Maddy> «Who's to say.»
Oct 17 21:16:14 <Gara> «It's bad.»
Oct 17 21:16:20 <Pemander> Ari fist pumps. "Yes!" She looks to Scott. "Are you /ready/ for this, dog?"
Oct 17 21:16:32 <Pemander> "We are about to get our explore on."
Oct 17 21:16:43 <Echo> «Won't anybody know if we don't check-» "Yeah, I guess so."
Oct 17 21:16:53 <Maddy> Elle puts out her smoke and wanders over t the main building thing.
Oct 17 21:17:04 <Echo> He peeks inside the building, looking around again to make sure his worse fears aren't confirmed.
Oct 17 21:17:04 <Dexanote> «Well I can't find any working computers here so maybe down there."
Oct 17 21:17:28 <Pemander> Arianna follows the policeman, humming happily and dancing from foot to foot.
Oct 17 21:17:44 <Gara> Emma drops near them, and walks by them.
Oct 17 21:17:47 <Gara> With, even.
Oct 17 21:17:51 <Echo> He steps inside, trying to get his eyes on the elevator.
Oct 17 21:18:07 <Echo> Has anything come up with it?
Oct 17 21:19:17 <Dexanote> Myr stands across from the elevator. it looks moderately clean and quite well lit. Moreso than the other one. "… Well. who wants to go first?"
Oct 17 21:20:01 <Pemander> "I do, I do." She hurries in and turns around to face the group.
Oct 17 21:20:01 <Maddy> "Well im fairly certain we could all fit at once, but I'll go."
Oct 17 21:20:09 <Maddy> "…or not."
Oct 17 21:20:32 <Dexanote> Myr tightens her belt and steps in as well. "We can, i guess. Come on."
Oct 17 21:20:38 <Gara> Emma goes on in.
Oct 17 21:20:43 <Echo> "Yeah, I dunno if we wanna put just *one* person down at once…"
Oct 17 21:20:48 <Maddy> Elle gets in too.
Oct 17 21:21:00 <Echo> Scott squeezes in.
Oct 17 21:21:53 <Pemander> "You guys worry too much. Everything is going to be alright."
Oct 17 21:22:41 <Echo> "Well… I mean, the place had its lights out. Shut down. People up and gone."
Oct 17 21:22:46 <Dexanote> There are only two buttons in the elevator. Up, and Down.
Oct 17 21:22:57 <Pemander> "Kiddo, get in here."
Oct 17 21:23:07 <Pemander> Arianna gestures to Charlotte.
Oct 17 21:23:12 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte slips inside the elevator.
Oct 17 21:23:19 <Pemander> She pokes the Down button.
Oct 17 21:23:29 <Echo> "Beam up down, Ari."
Oct 17 21:23:43 <Pemander> "I do what I want, nerd."
Oct 17 21:23:53 <Echo> "…"
Oct 17 21:24:28 <Echo> "Just make sure you stay out of the way when the doors open. I don't want to see something and not be able to fire."
Oct 17 21:24:36 <Pemander> "Yeah, yeah. Whatever."
Oct 17 21:24:43 <Pemander> Ari blows a strand of hair out of her face.
Oct 17 21:24:46 <Maddy> Elle rolls her eyes.
Oct 17 21:26:53 <Dexanote> The elevator descends, at an even and gradual pace. And descends. and descends.
Oct 17 21:27:10 <Echo> "How far does this damn thing go?"
Oct 17 21:27:32 <Maddy> "The one I worked at as like a 10 minute ride."
Oct 17 21:27:45 <Echo> "… you're shitting me."
Oct 17 21:27:51 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte fidgets uncomfortably in the corner of the elevator.
Oct 17 21:28:00 <Gara> "Underground bases are deep."
Oct 17 21:28:14 <Dexanote> This particular ride continues for a solid 7-8 minutes before slowing, setting down.
Oct 17 21:28:44 <Pemander> Ari yawns and stretches.
Oct 17 21:29:18 <Maddy> Elle checks her weapon.
Oct 17 21:29:38 <Dexanote> There's a pause of about 5 seconds before teh door opens, to reveal a dimly lit site hallway. It closely resembles the halls of the building above, if slightly wider and with more fluorescent lights. Windowed doors line the hall at 30 foot intervals, until it parts in a T shape far down the way.
Oct 17 21:30:28 <MonkeyBomb> <Eerie.>
Oct 17 21:30:47 <Gara> Emma nods.
Oct 17 21:31:21 <Maddy> Elle sticks her head out of the door and looks around before tentitively going a little forward.
Oct 17 21:31:39 <Pemander> Arianna no longer seems as eager to be first.
Oct 17 21:31:49 <Pemander> She follows closely behind Elle, knives out.
Oct 17 21:32:07 <Echo> Scott clicks on his rifle light and eases out beside Elle. "Careful now."
Oct 17 21:32:18 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte stays behind the people with guns… <So, uh, what are we expecting to find down here.> She gestures to Scott's rifle.
Oct 17 21:32:39 <MonkeyBomb> Her 'voice' is subdued, as if she's whispering.
Oct 17 21:32:57 <Pemander> "Secret stuff."
Oct 17 21:33:07 <Echo> "Any idea what might be down here, Elle?"
Oct 17 21:33:24 <Maddy> "Who knows. For all I know this could be a safe item site."
Oct 17 21:33:39 <Gara> Emma goes with the party, rifle in her hands.
Oct 17 21:33:45 <Maddy> "But I think its just better to assume a bear with lazer eyes or something."
Oct 17 21:34:00 <MonkeyBomb> <…………………Okay.>
Oct 17 21:34:01 <Gara> "A laser with bear eyes."
Oct 17 21:34:15 <Maddy> "Just basically something bad."
Oct 17 21:34:16 <Dexanote> that was a cheat creature in Age of Mythology
Oct 17 21:34:24 <Echo> "Then I guess we just hope it's safe…"
Oct 17 21:34:48 <Dexanote> Most of the doorways they pass open to dark rooms. Occasionally a break room can be seen through a window.
Oct 17 21:35:06 <Dexanote> Or some such room.
Oct 17 21:35:20 <Echo> Scott stops at the closest door and peeks inside, detaching his weapon's light and holding it flat against the glass.
Oct 17 21:37:18 <Pemander> "See anything?" Ari rests her hands on her hips and looks all around.
Oct 17 21:37:43 <Dexanote> Scott sees a collection of steel racks, mostly empty. A few boxes of recognizable 9mm ammunition sit on a far shelf.
Oct 17 21:38:15 <Echo> "Uhhhh, maybe like a contingency room? Supply room? There's some nine millimeter ammo in here."
Oct 17 21:38:34 <Pemander> "Do we need that?"
Oct 17 21:38:40 <Gara> "That's all? Not a good sign."
Oct 17 21:38:56 <Echo> "Like, boxes of it on a shelf. Maybe check it out in a bit? And nah, we're straight on ammo in the LAV. Well, mostly."
Oct 17 21:39:18 <Echo> "I mean, yeah, we can dig it out, but I dunno if we wanna be knocking on doors when we don't know what could hear us."
Oct 17 21:39:40 <MonkeyBomb> <I agree…> This place gives Charlotte the creeps.
Oct 17 21:39:41 <Maddy> "Hmm…"
Oct 17 21:40:23 <Dexanote> There are no noises or strange feelings at all that you can detect. Only the hum of the generator.
Oct 17 21:40:49 <Pemander> Arianna starts to continue further down the hallway.
Oct 17 21:40:56 <Gara> Emma goes.
Oct 17 21:41:02 <Maddy> Elle does too
Oct 17 21:41:06 <Pemander> "What exactly are we looking for?"
Oct 17 21:41:11 <Echo> "Ehhh, I saw we…" Scott hears them walking off and jogs to catch up.
Oct 17 21:41:18 <Pemander> "Storage rooms would be specially marked, right?"
Oct 17 21:41:30 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte peers through the windows as they pass by the rooms, trying to see through the darkness. Her skin crawls.
Oct 17 21:41:33 <Pemander> "Like, Skippidy-Doo one-eight-two?"
Oct 17 21:41:34 <Dexanote> Arianna will remember, as she's the lucky one, that they were looking for databases.
Oct 17 21:41:36 <Echo> "Maybe a door placard."
Oct 17 21:42:16 <Maddy> "They were usually marked yeah."
Oct 17 21:42:36 <Pemander> She peers at every door they pass, looking for some kind of sign or marking.
Oct 17 21:42:48 <Echo> "Hey Elle."
Oct 17 21:42:54 <Maddy> "Should find anything where we can get on a computer, honestly. Yah?"
Oct 17 21:43:26 <Echo> "You shoulda been an architect or something working here. So you could tell us where all this shit is…"
Oct 17 21:43:54 <Maddy> "Eh, even then. I'd only know my site, right?"
Oct 17 21:45:03 <Pemander> "Seems like they would want at least some degree of similarity between all the sites."
Oct 17 21:45:16 <Pemander> "So if people got transferred, it wouldn't be super difficult to adjust, yeah?"
Oct 17 21:45:19 <Echo> "Eh, purpose-built stuff, I guess."
Oct 17 21:45:29 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte cups her hands around her eyes and presses her face against a window.
Oct 17 21:45:31 <Echo> Scott eases up on the intersection.
Oct 17 21:45:36 <Maddy> "Well I mean, a bio keter site is gonna be completely differnt than a safe storage.
Oct 17 21:45:38 <Maddy> "
Oct 17 21:46:11 <Echo> He passes the beam of the flashlight up and down each direction of the hallway, staying close to the left-hand corner.
Oct 17 21:46:35 <MonkeyBomb> She keeps up with the group.
Oct 17 21:46:45 <Gara> Emma stays behind Scott.
Oct 17 21:46:56 <Dexanote> There are two [2] tunnels. One goes into the dark (the Right tunnel), and one into the light (the left tunnel)
Oct 17 21:47:01 <Pemander> "Would be nice if there was one of those 'YOU ARE HERE' maps."
Oct 17 21:47:18 <MonkeyBomb> "…"
Oct 17 21:47:24 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte peers into both directions.
Oct 17 21:47:24 <Dexanote> None of the other rooms are particularly well lit. Charlotte won't see anything of note if she presses her face into the glass.
Oct 17 21:47:34 <Echo> "That's… a little ominous."
Oct 17 21:47:42 <MonkeyBomb> <You're telling me…..>
Oct 17 21:47:51 <Pemander> "No, see, it's irony."
Oct 17 21:47:54 <Gara> "Yeah."
Oct 17 21:47:56 <Pemander> "We have to go down the dark tunnel."
Oct 17 21:48:01 <Pemander> "That one is safer."
Oct 17 21:48:20 <MonkeyBomb> <Unless that's what they want you to think. Reverse psychology.>
Oct 17 21:48:37 <Pemander> "You'd better not talk back to me, kiddo, or I'll reverse…your butt!"
Oct 17 21:48:43 <Pemander> Ari wags a finger at Charlotte.
Oct 17 21:48:46 <Dexanote> the fuck
Oct 17 21:48:47 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte shakes her head.
Oct 17 21:48:49 <Gara> "… Gross."
Oct 17 21:50:04 <Echo> "Well, fuck it, we gotta go somewhere. Wait."
Oct 17 21:50:09 <Echo> "If there's computers."
Oct 17 21:50:26 <Echo> "They'll probably be where there's backups. And the first place to get power with a generator on."
Oct 17 21:50:43 <Pemander> "So you say light hallway?"
Oct 17 21:50:52 <Echo> Scott points down the better lit area. "You'd think, right?" He shrugs.
Oct 17 21:51:03 <Pemander> "I still vote dark."
Oct 17 21:51:07 <Pemander> "Irony trumps logic."
Oct 17 21:51:18 <Maddy> "Seems good to me." Elle starts down the lit hall, gun up.
Oct 17 21:51:29 <Pemander> She sighs and follows after Elle.
Oct 17 21:51:40 <Pemander> "You're the boss, boss-lady."
Oct 17 21:51:43 <Echo> "I'll bring up the rear."
Oct 17 21:52:01 <Pemander> "Yeah, you would."
Oct 17 21:52:12 <Dexanote> woop
Oct 17 21:52:17 <Pemander> Ari turns her nose up at him and twirls a knife.
Oct 17 21:52:49 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte follows the group, thankfully leaving the dark hallway behind.
Oct 17 21:53:19 <Gara> Emma goes.
Oct 17 21:53:27 <Echo> "Charlotte, you wanna get up here in between us? I don't wanna have to shoot past you if something comes up behind us."
Oct 17 21:53:38 <Dexanote> The group makes their way down the lit hallway. It turns to a gradual incline further down, curving to the right. Several doors line the walls - the first a flickering room filled with scattered paper, the second featuring one [1] corpse in a corner, mostly rotted, gun in its hand.
Oct 17 21:54:13 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte moves up so that Scott's taking the rear and she's not in his way.
Oct 17 21:54:19 <MonkeyBomb> <Sorry.>
Oct 17 21:54:28 <Maddy> "Lovely."
Oct 17 21:55:07 <Gara> "Very."
Oct 17 21:55:08 <Pemander> "Hah, that guy died. Sucker."
Oct 17 21:55:14 <Pemander> She sticks her tongue out at the corpse.
Oct 17 21:55:21 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte's feeling of unease deepens.
Oct 17 21:55:22 <Echo> "… That's fucked up."
Oct 17 21:56:21 <Gara> "Yeah."
Oct 17 21:56:27 <Echo> Scott heads over toward the corpse as he clips his light back to his rifle. Any obvious cause of death, or damage to the corpse?
Oct 17 21:56:55 <Dexanote> Looks like it shot itself in the head. There might be something on the far wall, but it's hard to see through the fogged window.
Oct 17 21:57:20 <Echo> He tries the door.
Oct 17 21:57:29 <Echo> "It's a suicide."
Oct 17 21:57:34 <Pemander> "It is /not/ fucked up."
Oct 17 21:57:43 <Pemander> Ari twirls a strand of her hair.
Oct 17 21:58:25 <Dexanote> The door is unlocked. As it opens, a stiff waft of stale air hits everybody.
Oct 17 21:58:33 <Gara> "Yes, it is."
Oct 17 21:58:33 <Dexanote> Dust flutters out into the hall.
Oct 17 21:58:47 <Maddy> Elle covers people and stuff
Oct 17 21:59:02 <Pemander> She looks further down the hall.
Oct 17 21:59:31 <Echo> "Shit… I just thought of something."
Oct 17 21:59:37 <Pemander> "What is it?"
Oct 17 21:59:41 <MonkeyBomb> "….."
Oct 17 21:59:55 <Echo> "We should have probably brought down those hazmat suits from the LAV."
Oct 17 22:00:11 <Pemander> "Oh gosh, yeah. It could be some crazy disease that got out."
Oct 17 22:00:14 <Dexanote> The dust settles. Inside, the light flickers a bit. There is no other motion.
Oct 17 22:00:15 <MonkeyBomb> <You mention this /now/?>
Oct 17 22:00:34 <Pemander> "Maybe that guy ate a bullet because he didn't want to turn into a zombie."
Oct 17 22:00:34 <Maddy> "Huh. I cant believe none of us thought of this."
Oct 17 22:00:42 <MonkeyBomb> "……………"
Oct 17 22:00:51 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte backs away from the room.
Oct 17 22:01:25 <Pemander> She shakes her head and clicks her tongue. "Well, you're all probably fucked."
Oct 17 22:01:27 <Gara> "Well."
Oct 17 22:01:30 <Echo> "I didn't even think about it!"
Oct 17 22:01:31 <Pemander> "I mean /I'll/ be alright, of course."
Oct 17 22:01:46 <Maddy> Elle shrugs.
Oct 17 22:01:49 <Echo> Scott heads inside. "And it's nothin' to worry about now, I was just saying."
Oct 17 22:01:52 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte imagines a hundred and one horrible ways to die.
Oct 17 22:02:22 <Dexanote> Inside there are a collection of papers scattered across the floor, as well as a desk and upturned chair.
Oct 17 22:02:33 <Dexanote> The papers have long rotted and are illegible.
Oct 17 22:02:58 <Maddy> "Guess we'll move on?"
Oct 17 22:03:06 <Echo> "Well, shit, nothing here." What was that on the wall?
Oct 17 22:03:19 <Dexanote> But behind Scott, on the wall of the door, he can see definite black residue on the wall. Possibly blood. In… a really coherent pattern. Like a circle around the door's window.
Oct 17 22:03:58 <Echo> "…" He keeps his light on it. "Yo. Check this out."
Oct 17 22:04:15 <Pemander> Ari looks over and frowns. "Why would someone circle the window?"
Oct 17 22:04:29 <Pemander> "Hold on, hold on. Everyone get in and close the door so we can look through."
Oct 17 22:04:43 <MonkeyBomb> "……………………………"
Oct 17 22:04:48 <Dexanote> yes ari
Oct 17 22:04:53 <Maddy> "Ill stay out here thanks"
Oct 17 22:04:59 <Gara> "Yeah no."
Oct 17 22:05:16 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte hurriedly skips out of the room. <Hell no.>
Oct 17 22:05:18 <Pemander> "Look, it's obvious they were trying to leave some kind of message about the window."
Oct 17 22:05:28 <Pemander> "Fine, you all stay out there and /I'll/ look through it."
Oct 17 22:05:31 <Maddy> "Or it's the effect of some kinda thing."
Oct 17 22:05:33 <Echo> "Then get in there and check it out."
Oct 17 22:05:44 <Pemander> Arianna walks into the room with a huff.
Oct 17 22:06:52 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte imagines a hundred and two horrible ways to die.
Oct 17 22:07:04 <Pemander> "Can I close the door now, chickens?"
Oct 17 22:07:11 <MonkeyBomb> <So, ummm, remind me again why this is a good idea?>
Oct 17 22:07:11 <Echo> "Go for it."
Oct 17 22:07:15 <Maddy> "It's a free country."
Oct 17 22:07:23 <Gara> "I can't tell you why."
Oct 17 22:07:24 <Pemander> She slowly eases the door shut. "Your mom's a free country."
Oct 17 22:07:25 <Echo> "She's into that sorta thing."
Oct 17 22:07:36 <MonkeyBomb> "……"
Oct 17 22:07:40 <Pemander> "Get it cause she's fa-" It closes.
Oct 17 22:07:40 <Dexanote> As the door clicks shut, Arianna rolls mental defense
Oct 17 22:07:59 <Pemander> 4df+2 WEEEHOO
Oct 17 22:07:59 <CROM> Pemander: WEEEHOO: 3 (4df+2=+, 0, 0, 0)
Oct 17 22:10:18 <Pemander> Ari sticks a finger in her ear and twists it around a bit.
Oct 17 22:10:46 <Maddy> Elle waits
Oct 17 22:10:51 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte holds her breath. She doesn't even know she's doing it.
Oct 17 22:10:58 <Pemander> She reaches back to the knob and turns it to open the door.l
Oct 17 22:11:01 <Echo> "Well?"
Oct 17 22:11:47 <Pemander> Ari shrugs. "Nothing out of the ordinary."
Oct 17 22:12:13 <Gara> "That doesn't mean much for you,."
Oct 17 22:12:21 <Pemander> "Wow. Rude."
Oct 17 22:12:31 <Maddy> "Let's just keep moving ok?"
Oct 17 22:12:41 <Echo> Scott nods and follows Elle.
Oct 17 22:12:45 <Pemander> "Alright." She nods and gestures with a knife. "Lead the way."
Oct 17 22:13:16 <Maddy> Elle continues down the call, peeking into doorways on the way.
Oct 17 22:14:22 <Echo> Scott peeks back into the flickering window.
Oct 17 22:15:24 <Dexanote> No movement.
Oct 17 22:15:54 <Echo> He pops the door open, and stands back.
Oct 17 22:16:00 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte shivers.
Oct 17 22:16:41 <MonkeyBomb> She looks nervously up and down the hallway.
Oct 17 22:16:55 <Pemander> Ari pats her on the head. "Chill, kiddo."
Oct 17 22:17:07 <MonkeyBomb> <…Did you guys feel that?>
Oct 17 22:17:15 <Pemander> "Feel what?"
Oct 17 22:17:35 <MonkeyBomb> <It felt like a draft.>
Oct 17 22:17:43 <Maddy> "I didn't."
Oct 17 22:17:51 <Pemander> "Oooh, a draft, so spooky." She holds her hands up.
Oct 17 22:17:58 <Pemander> "And then a skeleton popped out."
Oct 17 22:18:09 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte frowns. <….And then a skeleton popped out, yeah.>
Oct 17 22:18:32 <MonkeyBomb> She shakes the feeling off.
Oct 17 22:18:56 <MonkeyBomb> <Let's just hurry up and get out of here, please? This place is… bad.>
Oct 17 22:19:17 <Pemander> "We have to find something neat at least."
Oct 17 22:19:24 <Pemander> "I'm not leaving without some loot."
Oct 17 22:20:11 <Echo> Scott eases into the room, rifle first.
Oct 17 22:20:12 <Dexanote> The hall continues, and they eventually find more doorways. One is open to a large cubicle type office.
Oct 17 22:20:24 <Maddy> Wait
Oct 17 22:23:35 <Dexanote> Ok.
Oct 17 22:23:58 <Dexanote> Scott eases into the room. Nothing strange seems to happen.
Oct 17 22:24:19 <Dexanote> The air feels oppressive and stale. Dusty.
Oct 17 22:24:49 <Echo> He shines his flashlight around for a few moments before stepping back out. "I'll be right with you guys!"
Oct 17 22:25:26 <Pemander> Ari is still with Elle.
Oct 17 22:25:47 <Pemander> "Hey, Elle. Two guys walk into a bar, right?"
Oct 17 22:25:51 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte hovers indecisively between Scott and Elle for a moment.
Oct 17 22:26:06 <MonkeyBomb> Who's with who?
Oct 17 22:26:11 <Gara> Emma goes in behind Scott, rifle up.
Oct 17 22:26:49 <Maddy> "Mhm?"
Oct 17 22:26:50 <Pemander> "The bartender says, 'Hey, what'll you have'. First guy goes 'give me some H2O'."
Oct 17 22:27:06 <Pemander> "Second guy looks at the first guy and then back to the bartender, says 'I'll have some H2O too'."
Oct 17 22:27:12 <Pemander> "The second guy dies."
Oct 17 22:27:15 <Echo> Anything in the flickering room?
Oct 17 22:27:24 <Maddy> "I don't get it." she stops, waiting for the oothers.
Oct 17 22:27:46 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte waits outside the second room for Emma and Scott.
Oct 17 22:27:48 <Dexanote> Was this the first room or the second room.
Oct 17 22:27:54 <Pemander> "H2O2 is hydrogen peroxide or something."
Oct 17 22:27:59 <Maddy> "Oh. Haha."
Oct 17 22:28:02 <Dexanote> I apologize I got turned around i'm back now.
Oct 17 22:28:36 <Echo> Dexanote: Thje one with the flickiring lighht and all the papers
Oct 17 22:30:57 <Dexanote> Ah yes. He steps in. Many of the papers are faded or rotty, with a stray few being partially legible. Reports and such. Printouts; they look like they're discussing the shit that went down years ago, the End. "Outbreak of SCP-4█", "Si█e ██ Compromi" and such are the headers. It looks like people here knew that it was going down.
Oct 17 22:31:46 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte looks at the corpse through the window as she waits.
Oct 17 22:31:47 <Echo> Scott leans out into the hallway. "Nothin' in here!"
Oct 17 22:32:00 <Maddy> "Roger that."
Oct 17 22:32:36 <Echo> He jogs down the hallway to Elle and Ari. "Nothin' up here?"
Oct 17 22:32:47 <Pemander> "We were kind of waiting for you, but up to this point nah."
Oct 17 22:32:48 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte follows along quickly.
Oct 17 22:32:49 <Maddy> "Found some cubicles, was jsut waiting for you."
Oct 17 22:32:50 <Pemander> "Just shit humour."
Oct 17 22:33:53 <Gara> Emma returns with him.
Oct 17 22:34:47 <Dexanote> The cubicle'd room is rather large and bland, if well lit. Scattered papers and such, but no sign of dead bodies.
Oct 17 22:35:16 <Maddy> Ell starts to look around at the papers, keeping an eye out for computer
Oct 17 22:36:04 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte flips through the papers as she goes, not really knowing what she's looking for.
Oct 17 22:36:06 <Dexanote> Same kinds of things. Rapid emails, memos, blank sheets… one scribbled list of lunch items someone was gathering. No bodies though.
Oct 17 22:36:34 <MonkeyBomb> Darn.
Oct 17 22:36:47 <Pemander> "Anyone got a lighter?"
Oct 17 22:37:22 <Maddy> Elle tosses hers to Ari before she can think this might be a bad choice
Oct 17 22:37:35 <Pemander> "Thanks." Ari grabs a stack of papers and sets them on fire. "Hee."
Oct 17 22:37:46 <Pemander> Then she throws the flaming papers on the ground.
Oct 17 22:37:48 <Dexanote> The computers all seem to be in standby mode. One cubicle has a large external hard drive wired to the comp tower, hidden behind the chair.
Oct 17 22:38:04 <Maddy> "Dude, what." she goes to stomp out the fire.
Oct 17 22:38:09 <Pemander> "Data expunged, guys."
Oct 17 22:38:13 <Dexanote> The flaming papers fall to the ground and burn. The ashes burn into a star-and-circle pentagram.
Oct 17 22:38:18 <MonkeyBomb> <Wity.>
Oct 17 22:38:21 <Pemander> "Woah what the fuck."
Oct 17 22:38:27 <Maddy> "…WHAT."
Oct 17 22:38:29 <Dexanote> Elle's foot does not stomp out the pentagram. It reforms as the paper burns.
Oct 17 22:38:38 <MonkeyBomb> "……"
Oct 17 22:38:40 <Dexanote> Soon as the flame goes out, the ashes scatter underboot.
Oct 17 22:38:46 <MonkeyBomb> <Okay.>
Oct 17 22:38:47 <Maddy> "Someone get on these computers, get the info and were leaving."
Oct 17 22:38:48 <Pemander> "I'm a demon! Noooo!"
Oct 17 22:38:59 <Pemander> "Now only Tifa will want to hang out with me.'/
Oct 17 22:39:37 <Echo> "Okay, just… shit… keep back from it."
Oct 17 22:40:09 <MonkeyBomb> At least there are no dead bodies.
Oct 17 22:41:50 <Dexanote> The computers seem to be online.
Oct 17 22:41:51 <Gara> "…"
Oct 17 22:42:19 <Echo> "What are we looking for on the computers?"
Oct 17 22:43:02 <Pemander> "Just open up Outlook or something."
Oct 17 22:43:07 <Pemander> "They use that, right?"
Oct 17 22:43:33 <Maddy> 'What, I dont know shit about computers. Just shit on the Daevites."
Oct 17 22:45:06 <Pemander> "Don't look at me."
Oct 17 22:45:16 <Pemander> "I can turn them on and that's about it."
Oct 17 22:45:23 <Maddy> "Fck."
Oct 17 22:45:24 <Dexanote> The computer screens are each on the login screen.
Oct 17 22:45:35 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte shrugs, indicating she doesn't know what to do.
Oct 17 22:45:41 <Echo> "… well, we'd need a password."
Oct 17 22:46:13 <Pemander> Ari slams her fist down on the center of the keyboard and then presses ENTER.
Oct 17 22:46:28 <MonkeyBomb> <Jeez.>
Oct 17 22:46:36 <MonkeyBomb> <Break them why don't you.>
Oct 17 22:46:37 <Gara> "I don't think that will work."
Oct 17 22:46:46 <Pemander> "What did I tell you about sass, little girl?"
Oct 17 22:46:48 <Dexanote> [requires username]
Oct 17 22:46:57 <MonkeyBomb> <Don't call me that.>
Oct 17 22:47:06 <Pemander> "Username? Man, this is bullshit."
Oct 17 22:47:24 <MonkeyBomb> <How are we supposed to know what the username is?>
Oct 17 22:47:25 <Pemander> "Hold on they always sticky note them to the underside of their desk if they're retarded."
Oct 17 22:47:36 <Echo> "…" Scott leans over and types "guest" in the username field and "password" as the password.
Oct 17 22:47:39 <Pemander> Arianna bends down and sweeps her arm around underneath the computer.
Oct 17 22:47:51 <Dexanote> Scott and Arianna both of you roll Persuasion.
Oct 17 22:48:06 <Pemander> 4df+2 HAHA I ACTUALLY HAVE THIS SKILL!
Oct 17 22:48:06 <CROM> Pemander: HAHA I ACTUALLY HAVE THIS SKILL!: 0 (4df+2=0, 0, -, -)
Oct 17 22:48:09 <Pemander> Aw :(
Oct 17 22:48:24 <Dexanote> Wow.
Oct 17 22:48:29 <Echo> 4df+0 :(
Oct 17 22:48:30 <CROM> Echo: :(: 1 (4df+0=-, +, 0, +)
Oct 17 22:48:34 <Dexanote> fuckit
Oct 17 22:48:48 <Echo> "This is not going to work."
Oct 17 22:48:51 <Dexanote> The computer flickers on. [welcome, 'guest'.]
Oct 17 22:48:58 <Pemander> "…woah."
Oct 17 22:48:59 <Echo> "HOLY SHIT IT WORKED."
Oct 17 22:49:11 <Pemander> Arianna rubs Scott's arm. "I think I'm rubbing off on you."
Oct 17 22:49:20 <Echo> Scott looks over at Elle. "Your security *sucks*."
Oct 17 22:50:18 <Maddy> "Eh."
Oct 17 22:50:39 <Dexanote> There are three things on the desktop. "FOUNDMAIL", "DATABASE", "WORDPAD".
Oct 17 22:50:51 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte watches over their sholders.
Oct 17 22:50:53 <MonkeyBomb> *shoulders
Oct 17 22:51:05 <Echo> "… Elle, you wanna do this?"
Oct 17 22:51:10 <Pemander> "Foundmail? What a stupid name. That's like…you're walking by and you see a letter just sitting in the dirt."
Oct 17 22:51:16 <Pemander> "Hurr hurr hey guys I foundmail."
Oct 17 22:51:18 <Maddy> "…I guess?"
Oct 17 22:51:23 <MonkeyBomb> <Foundation mail……..?>
Oct 17 22:51:29 <Maddy> She clicks database
Oct 17 22:52:02 <Dexanote> The database opens up, a rather sleek and stylish black on silver on white system. "Does the black moon howl?"
Oct 17 22:52:14 <MonkeyBomb> "….."
Oct 17 22:52:42 <Echo> "What?"
Oct 17 22:52:51 <Maddy> Elle things and types "Only while waning." cause why the fuck not
Oct 17 22:53:40 <Dexanote> There's a click. "Welcome, Dr. Bright."
Oct 17 22:54:01 <Pemander> "That's a weird last name."
Oct 17 22:54:09 <Maddy> "Oh…oh wow."
Oct 17 22:54:21 <Maddy> "He;s like, well was, kinda a big deal."
Oct 17 22:54:23 <Echo> "What? What's up?"
Oct 17 22:54:31 <Pemander> "Never heard of him."
Oct 17 22:54:32 <Echo> "Who?"
Oct 17 22:54:58 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte pulls up a nearby chair and sits in it.
Oct 17 22:55:14 <Maddy> "Dr Bright, I dont know what his deal was but people talked about him all over the place. Someone told me once he got like, fucked up by a skip and was made imortal or some such nonsence."
Oct 17 22:55:30 <Gara> "Huh."
Oct 17 22:55:34 <Pemander> "That's silly. No one's immortal."
Oct 17 22:55:46 <Dexanote> A small graphic with the number 4 appears at the top right; buttons for "SERIES", "SEARCH", "ALERTS", "DATA BACKUP", "LOG OUT" are neatly spaced in a stack.
Oct 17 22:55:50 <Maddy> "Well yeah, but the fact that stories was being told…"
Oct 17 22:55:54 <Pemander> "Oh, check the alerts."
Oct 17 22:55:55 <Maddy> she clicks search.
Oct 17 22:56:01 <Pemander> "Nono, alerts!"
Oct 17 22:56:03 <Maddy> "In a sec."
Oct 17 22:56:10 <Pemander> "We'll know what went do- damn it Elle."
Oct 17 22:56:17 <Dexanote> The search opens up.
Oct 17 22:56:22 <Maddy> "Like I wanna get the Daevite shit first incase something come aroudn the corner."
Oct 17 22:56:30 <Maddy> She types Daevite!
Oct 17 22:56:34 <Pemander> She sighs and leans against a cubicle wall. "Fine."
Oct 17 22:58:11 <Echo> "She's got a point."
Oct 17 22:58:40 <Dexanote> The database searches a bit. Soon it brings up , with no censor bars..
Oct 17 22:58:50 <Maddy> "Bingo!"
Oct 17 22:59:04 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte leans forward and reads.
Oct 17 22:59:52 <MonkeyBomb> <………..This stuff's real, isn't it?>
Oct 17 23:00:15 <Dexanote> no shit, charlotte
Oct 17 23:00:31 <Maddy> "Bluh bluh bluh, already knew this stuff…" she nods. "Yeah, this kinda shit was my job to make sure it stayed in boxes."
Oct 17 23:00:58 <Maddy> "Ok, so…the book is iiiinnn New York. Fuck."
Oct 17 23:01:13 <Echo> "Yeah, it's rea- New York?"
Oct 17 23:01:27 <Maddy> "Yep."
Oct 17 23:01:41 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte somehow doesn't hear Dex's rude comment.
Oct 17 23:02:32 <Gara> "…"
Oct 17 23:02:34 <Gara> "Oh, shit."
Oct 17 23:02:38 <Pemander> "But all the Inkies are in California."
Oct 17 23:04:01 <Echo> "So… we're headed to New York, then."
Oct 17 23:04:21 <Maddy> "Huh, something here on some kinda contaigon too."
Oct 17 23:04:30 <Gara> "Fucking hilarious. Back and forth to New York."
Oct 17 23:04:48 <Maddy> She looks for a ways to print this, that failing, a usb stick thing.
Oct 17 23:05:57 <Pemander> "When were we in New York?"
Oct 17 23:06:04 <Pemander> Ari scratches her head.
Oct 17 23:06:07 <Gara> "I was."
Oct 17 23:06:07 <Maddy> "Yeah I've never been there."
Oct 17 23:06:09 <Dexanote> She will find a Homer Simpson shaped USB stick beside the group on the floor, hooked to a frontal USB port. There is also a "DATABASE BACKUP" function on the database client.
Oct 17 23:06:17 <Echo> "What kinda contagion?"
Oct 17 23:06:22 <Dexanote> not on the floor dammit
Oct 17 23:07:05 <Maddy> She does that backup thing then. "Apparently these guys can like, make people into ink people." she seems surprisingly un worried about this
Oct 17 23:07:19 <Gara> "Huh."
Oct 17 23:07:34 <Echo> "The things that were after us?"
Oct 17 23:07:39 <Maddy> "Yeah."
Oct 17 23:07:52 <Pemander> "Well that's weird."
Oct 17 23:07:53 <Dexanote> The backup slowly continues. Everyone perception.
Oct 17 23:07:57 <Pemander> Arianna scratches at one of her gloves.
Oct 17 23:08:04 <Echo> "… How do they do that?"
Oct 17 23:08:08 <Pemander> 4df+4 AP for power
Oct 17 23:08:09 <CROM> Pemander: AP for power: 6 (4df+4=+, +, -, +)
Oct 17 23:08:09 <Echo> 4df+2 ?
Oct 17 23:08:09 <CROM> Echo: ?: 0 (4df+2=-, -, 0, 0)
Oct 17 23:08:12 <Maddy> 4df+4 it hink
Oct 17 23:08:13 <CROM> Maddy: it hink: 3 (4df+4=0, +, -, -)
Oct 17 23:08:13 <Pemander> That's a 7.
Oct 17 23:09:14 <Gara> 4df+6 AP for power
Oct 17 23:09:15 <Dexanote> Yes monkey
Oct 17 23:09:15 <CROM> Gara: AP for power: 9 (4df+6=+, +, +, 0)
Oct 17 23:09:17 <MonkeyBomb> 4df+3
Oct 17 23:09:18 <CROM> MonkeyBomb: 4 (4df+3=+, +, -, 0)
Oct 17 23:10:35 <Pemander> Arianna twists a finger in her ear again. "You guys hear that?"
Oct 17 23:10:38 <Pemander> "Or is it just me?"
Oct 17 23:10:48 <Gara> "Yeah."
Oct 17 23:10:53 <Dexanote> The computer screen flickers.
Oct 17 23:11:11 <Echo> "Hear what?"
Oct 17 23:11:19 <MonkeyBomb> "…..?"
Oct 17 23:11:40 <Pemander> She turns to Emma. "The grinding noise?"
Oct 17 23:11:49 <Maddy> Elle wills the backup to happen faster
Oct 17 23:11:58 <Gara> "Yeah, that."
Oct 17 23:12:27 <MonkeyBomb> <No.>
Oct 17 23:12:33 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte glances around.
Oct 17 23:12:36 <MonkeyBomb> Nervously, that is.
Oct 17 23:14:06 <Dexanote> The USB fills- in several minutes there's a loud "BING" as it finishes backing up. "Database backup, complete. Continue?"
Oct 17 23:14:34 <Echo> "Yeah, get it and let's get the fuck out of here."
Oct 17 23:14:53 <Maddy> She clicks that, ejects the drive and hops up. "Right!"
Oct 17 23:14:54 <Pemander> "Wait, open up the wordpad and type 'butts'."
Oct 17 23:15:01 <Maddy> "You can I'm leaving."
Oct 17 23:15:03 <Pemander> "I'll do it one second." Arianna leans over the keyboard.
Oct 17 23:15:17 <Dexanote> The moment Wordpad opens, the lights all go out.
Oct 17 23:15:24 <Pemander> "God DAMNIT."
Oct 17 23:15:26 <MonkeyBomb> <What???> Charlotte looks at Arianna in disbelief. That is, while she could still see her.
Oct 17 23:15:31 <Pemander> She punches the keyboard.
Oct 17 23:15:38 <MonkeyBomb> <Oh god….>
Oct 17 23:16:04 <Dexanote> The keyboard spells "look"
Oct 17 23:16:08 <Maddy> "Move!" Elle heads for the way out.

Oct 17 23:16:40 * Roget is now known as Rogetsomesleep
Oct 17 23:16:50 <Maddy> Pretty much
Oct 17 23:16:58 <Pemander> Arianna shrugs at 'look' and grabs Charlotte's arm. "Come on, kiddo." She follows after the others.
Oct 17 23:17:08 <Gara> Emma goes
Oct 17 23:17:08 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte races along with them.
Oct 17 23:17:32 <Dexanote> The group flees the room, down the halls. They keep running- door after door passes. Strange… it didn't feel this long going down there.
Oct 17 23:18:40 <Maddy> "What is this shit, the fucking Ash Tree Lane House?"
Oct 17 23:19:15 <Dexanote> They'll notice that there are no real other sounds. Just their footsteps and breathing.
Oct 17 23:19:21 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte's spine tingles with chills as she runs.
Oct 17 23:19:32 <MonkeyBomb> She wonders where they're running anyway….
Oct 17 23:19:33 <Echo> Scott almost slows to ask Elle what that even is, then decides to ask later.
Oct 17 23:19:54 <Maddy> She slows down for a sec. "Ok this ain't working."
Oct 17 23:19:59 <Pemander> "Anyone got a mirror?"
Oct 17 23:20:03 <Gara> "Nop."
Oct 17 23:20:04 <Pemander> "Oh, wait. I do."
Oct 17 23:20:13 <Pemander> Arianna rummages around in her backpack and pulls out her pocket mirror.
Oct 17 23:20:28 <Pemander> Wait nevermind.
Oct 17 23:20:32 <Pemander> She pulls out a pair of glasses.
Oct 17 23:20:53 <MonkeyBomb> <What are you doing?>
Oct 17 23:21:21 <Pemander> "Need to get a reflection."
Oct 17 23:21:31 <MonkeyBomb> <What? Why?>
Oct 17 23:21:40 <Pemander> "Oh god, I'm so dumb."
Oct 17 23:21:56 <Pemander> She throws the glasses on the floor and pulls out a knife. "Someone shine a flashlight on this, yeah?"
Oct 17 23:22:09 <Maddy> Elle does so
Oct 17 23:22:47 <Pemander> "See anything in the reflection?"
Oct 17 23:22:58 <Maddy> Does she?
Oct 17 23:23:45 <Dexanote> Nnnno.
Oct 17 23:23:56 <Maddy> "Nothing out of the ordinary."
Oct 17 23:24:01 <Pemander> "Damn, I swear that works like all the time."
Oct 17 23:24:10 <Pemander> Arianna throws her hands up. "So what do we do.'
Oct 17 23:24:12 <MonkeyBomb> "……."
Oct 17 23:24:22 <MonkeyBomb> <Okay, so… Where /are/ we?>
Oct 17 23:24:34 <Maddy> Elle shines her light around.
Oct 17 23:24:48 <Dexanote> Everybody mental defense. This is not an attack.
Oct 17 23:25:03 <MonkeyBomb> 4df+3 Brainzzzz
Oct 17 23:25:04 <CROM> MonkeyBomb: Brainzzzz: 4 (4df+3=0, -, +, +)

Oct 17 23:25:57 <CROM> Pemander: Woop: 0 (4df+2=-, 0, -, 0)
Oct 17 23:26:43 <Pemander> Arianna looks up to the ceiling and then back down to everyone else.
Oct 17 23:27:23 <Maddy> "You got any more ideas?"
Oct 17 23:27:41 <Gara> "… Uh, the fuck?"
Oct 17 23:27:53 <Maddy> "What?"
Oct 17 23:27:55 <Gara> "I'm seeing faces, anyone else…?"
Oct 17 23:28:06 <Pemander> "Oh! Uh, yeah."
Oct 17 23:28:09 <Pemander> "Blood. Ceiling."
Oct 17 23:28:16 <Maddy> "Nooooooo?"
Oct 17 23:28:17 <Pemander> "There's blood coming down."
Oct 17 23:28:17 <Echo> Scott pulls the flashlight off his rifle again, looking around.
Oct 17 23:28:20 <Echo> "No?"
Oct 17 23:28:36 <MonkeyBomb> <No………>
Oct 17 23:28:40 <Dexanote> Everyone else will feel like it's wrong to be here. Very suddenly, oppressively.
Oct 17 23:28:48 <Echo> "I'm not saying you guys are seeing shit… but I think you're seeing shit."
Oct 17 23:29:10 <Maddy> "Ok fuck, we obvisouly have to leave." she starts walking again.
Oct 17 23:29:23 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte doesn't hesitate to follow.
Oct 17 23:29:24 <Echo> Scott starts moving again with that, toward where the elevator should be,
Oct 17 23:30:45 <Pemander> Arianna jogs after everyone else. "But what if the hallway never ends?"
Oct 17 23:30:53 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte realizes she's clutching her knife in her pocket with a death grip.
Oct 17 23:30:54 <MonkeyBomb> <Shut up.>
Oct 17 23:30:57 <Maddy> "Then we die I guess?
Oct 17 23:31:13 <Gara> "Yup."
Oct 17 23:31:21 <Dexanote> The hallway makes a sharp left, into a vertical shaft.
Oct 17 23:31:35 <Gara> "Oh, this is /fresh/"
Oct 17 23:31:41 <Echo> Scott stops to avoid colliding with the wall rushing up on him.
Oct 17 23:31:44 <Maddy> Elle looks around fro a place to climb perhaps
Oct 17 23:32:03 <Dexanote> Climb down?
Oct 17 23:32:11 <Echo> He pans his flashlight around, looking for a call button. Elevator shaft, right?
Oct 17 23:32:33 <Maddy> Up would be better
Oct 17 23:32:35 <Dexanote> I meant the floor dropped down.
Oct 17 23:32:39 <Maddy> oh
Oct 17 23:32:40 <Dexanote> Into an abyss.
Oct 17 23:32:44 <Dexanote> Apologies.
Oct 17 23:32:48 <Pemander> Ari shouts down the shaft, "HEY GHOSTS, IF YOU DON'T STOP BOTHERING US, I'LL…KILL YOUR WHOLE FAMILY!"
Oct 17 23:32:52 <Maddy> "This is supier gay."
Oct 17 23:33:19 <Dexanote> At that moment, the blood stops dripping, the voices stop whispering, and the faces vanish.
Oct 17 23:33:28 <Echo> "… Fuck."
Oct 17 23:33:35 <Pemander> "Hah. Scared 'em off."
Oct 17 23:33:38 <Echo> Scott looks back the way they came.
Oct 17 23:33:38 <Maddy> Elle paces a little.
Oct 17 23:33:41 <Pemander> She crosses her arms proudly.
Oct 17 23:33:46 <Dexanote> The group is immediately hit by an incredible level of disorientation.
Oct 17 23:33:59 <Dexanote> Nausea, dizzyness, panic.
Oct 17 23:34:13 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte puts a hand out towards where she believes the wall to be.
Oct 17 23:34:17 <Maddy> she tries to fins a wall to lean on
Oct 17 23:34:18 <Pemander> Arianna stumbles around a bit and falls against a wall for support. "I…woah. Urgh."
Oct 17 23:34:34 <Dexanote> The dizzyness swings, shifting into vertigo, knocking the weaker to their knees. The psychically inclined hears a shrieking in the back of their mind.
Oct 17 23:34:57 <Pemander> She clamps her hands down on her ears. "Shut up…."
Oct 17 23:35:14 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte tries to stay standing.
Oct 17 23:35:17 <MonkeyBomb> <Ugggggggggggggh….>
Oct 17 23:35:25 <Dexanote> It eventually drifts away. The group opens their eyes in the dark.
Oct 17 23:35:27 * Rogetsomesleep is now known as Rogattheconvention
Oct 17 23:35:33 <Gara> Emma tries to be against a wall.
Oct 17 23:35:42 <Dexanote> The entire place has shifted; there's definitely a hallway before them, and behind them.
Oct 17 23:35:52 <Maddy> "This is facking BULLSHIT!"
Oct 17 23:36:11 <Echo> Scott looks around, forward and back. "Uhhhh, which way were we headed?
Oct 17 23:36:22 <Maddy> "I don't even know."
Oct 17 23:36:41 <Gara> "Fuck thisplace."
Oct 17 23:36:45 <Gara> "Just keep walking."
Oct 17 23:37:11 <Pemander> "I don't want to walk anymore. I want to kill them."
Oct 17 23:37:14 <Maddy> Elle does so.
Oct 17 23:37:23 * Rogattheconvention is now known as Rogaway
Oct 17 23:37:23 <Pemander> She slowly gets to her feet.
Oct 17 23:37:25 <Gara> "Kill /what/"
Oct 17 23:37:42 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte stands up. "………."
Oct 17 23:37:48 <Pemander> "All of them. Everything. Whatever they are."
Oct 17 23:37:50 <Echo> "We don't need to kill shit. We just need to get back up top."
Oct 17 23:37:53 <Pemander> "Blood isn't scary."
Oct 17 23:37:59 <Dexanote> The group continues on. Soon they come to a… very large blast door. Smashed open from the inside.
Oct 17 23:38:04 <Pemander> "Voices aren't scary. I'll fucking kill them."
Oct 17 23:38:09 <Maddy> "No but starving to d- oh for…"
Oct 17 23:38:11 <Dexanote> It looks pristine, just… bent open.
Oct 17 23:38:18 <Gara> "Huh."
Oct 17 23:38:26 <Gara> "That's probably bad."
Oct 17 23:38:40 <MonkeyBomb> <You think….> Charlotte's voice is subdued.
Oct 17 23:38:41 <Dexanote> Not smashed, sorry. Forced open.
Oct 17 23:38:43 <Pemander> Arianna continues mumbling to herself.
Oct 17 23:39:32 <Maddy> Elle sighs and walks into the room
Oct 17 23:39:56 <Echo> After hesitating a moment, Scott followed behind her.
Oct 17 23:40:21 <Gara> Emma goes.
Oct 17 23:40:24 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte goes too.
Oct 17 23:40:49 <Pemander> She hugs herself and trails after Charlotte. "Mess with me, I'll show you. No one messes with me…"
Oct 17 23:40:52 <Dexanote> The room is large and circular, very dark. Cylindrical. Very wide stairs line the wall, the steel handrail sturdy and industrial. The way is very short, maybe only one lap down.
Oct 17 23:41:06 <Dexanote> In the centre of the room…
Oct 17 23:41:59 <Maddy> "You guys wanna stay up here, I can head down."
Oct 17 23:42:13 <Maddy> "Shoot shit if you see it and so forth?"
Oct 17 23:43:01 * Rogaway is now known as Rogattheconvention
Oct 17 23:43:14 <Gara> "Absolutely."
Oct 17 23:44:00 <Maddy> She nods and starts heading down
Oct 17 23:45:28 <Dexanote> In the centre of the room, a large rectangular structure, maybe 6 feet tall and four feet wide, stands in the middle of the room on a pedestal. It takes a few moments and a shone flashlight to realize that it's a huge, very ornate, wooden coffin.
Oct 17 23:45:53 <Pemander> "…"
Oct 17 23:46:40 <MonkeyBomb> "…………."
Oct 17 23:47:43 <Dexanote> Your move.
Oct 17 23:48:00 <Echo> "We need should turn around."
Oct 17 23:48:13 <MonkeyBomb> Blast door smashed open…. Huge coffin… Yeah, Charlotte agrees.
Oct 17 23:48:19 <Maddy> "Nope." she goes back up the stairs. "Lets just keep trying to finf a ways out"
Oct 17 23:48:34 <Pemander> Arianna approaches the coffin.
Oct 17 23:48:53 <Dexanote> The coffin looms.
Oct 17 23:49:22 <Pemander> She twirls a knife. "Souvenir time?"
Oct 17 23:49:38 <MonkeyBomb> <What… what is this place?> Charlotte 'voice' is a tiny whisper.
Oct 17 23:49:42 <Dexanote> The coffin does not respond. She will notice that it is… very quiet.
Oct 17 23:49:46 <Gara> Emma trains her rifle at the coffin.
Oct 17 23:50:37 <Echo> "It was torn out from in here. Whatever did it's gone. We need to turn around, start walking, and get the fuck out. Come on, who's with me?"
Oct 17 23:50:49 <Pemander> Arianna looks around and then to Scott. "Sshhh. They're so scared."
Oct 17 23:50:50 <MonkeyBomb> <I am.>
Oct 17 23:50:57 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte sticks with Scott.
Oct 17 23:51:00 <Maddy> "Ari stop fucking around."
Oct 17 23:51:18 <Pemander> "I'm not fucking around. Listen! Listen to how quiet they are now."
Oct 17 23:51:23 <Gara> Emma doesn't move. "Yeah, if we're leaving, I'm sorta waiting on her to stop being a jackass."
Oct 17 23:51:29 <Maddy> "I didnt hear anythign in the first place."
Oct 17 23:52:03 <Pemander> She leans forward and whispers something right next to the coffin.
Oct 17 23:52:20 <Echo> "Fuck." Scott heads back out the door they entered the room in, moving quick.
Oct 17 23:53:15 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte follows closely, feeling bad for leaving the rest behind but really not wanting to be there.
Oct 17 23:53:44 <MonkeyBomb> <Arianna's insane…..>
Oct 17 23:53:45 <Dexanote> The coffin creeks.
Oct 17 23:54:18 <Pemander> Arianna looks disgusted.
Oct 17 23:54:21 <Maddy> Elle hesitates. "Guys come on."
Oct 17 23:54:34 <Gara> "Ari…."
Oct 17 23:54:56 <Maddy> She heads out with Scoot and Charlotte.
Oct 17 23:54:56 <Pemander> Droplets of blood drip down from her nose onto the floor.
Oct 17 23:55:13 <Gara> "Ari, get moving, I don't want to leave you behind."
Oct 17 23:55:21 <Pemander> "Next time. There's a limit to what I can do, and I'm not suicidal."
Oct 17 23:55:31 <Pemander> She turns on her heel and jogs over toward Emma, wiping her nose.
Oct 17 23:55:44 <Pemander> "Sorry. I'm better now. Feeling better."
Oct 17 23:55:49 <Dexanote> It's so quiet.
Oct 17 23:55:57 <Gara> "… Alright."
Oct 17 23:56:01 <Gara> "Through, I'll go in after."
Oct 17 23:56:22 <Pemander> "Got it." She passes Emma and tries to catch up with Scott and Elle.
Oct 17 23:56:37 <Gara> Emma backs through the door.
Oct 17 23:57:03 <Echo> Scott turns, jogging backwards and looking for Ari, "What the hell was that?"
Oct 17 23:58:05 <Pemander> She shakes her head. "Sorry. I lost it a little. Guess they got in my head or something."
Oct 17 23:58:11 <Pemander> "This place makes me feel not right."
Oct 17 23:58:29 <Maddy> "That makes everal of us."
Oct 17 23:58:30 <Dexanote> As they jog, it feels oppressive behind them. Rushing.
Oct 17 23:58:42 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte moves a little faster.
Oct 17 23:58:43 <Pemander> "Lets go faster."
Oct 17 23:58:43 <Dexanote> They can see light around the corner.
Oct 17 23:58:48 <Pemander> Arianna breaks into a sprint.
Oct 17 23:58:54 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte follows suit
Oct 17 23:58:54 <Maddy> Elle follows suit
Oct 18 00:00:34 <Dexanote> As they turn the corner they'll see a steep incline, and stairs. Up the stairs, the same hallway they originally found themselves in, the light left side and the dark right side. they're coming out of the dark right side.
Oct 18 00:01:07 <Pemander> "…ooh, symbolism."
Oct 18 00:02:04 <Maddy> "This is just so weird." she heads for the elevator
Oct 18 00:02:32 <Dexanote> The elevator opens as they arrive. inside is covered in blood. Markings, writings, paintings of eyes and knives and "GET OUT".
Oct 18 00:02:55 <Maddy> "Working on it." she says to no one
Oct 18 00:03:05 <Echo> Scott keeps right with Elle, making sure Charlotte's not too far behind.
Oct 18 00:03:06 <Gara> "Huh."
Oct 18 00:03:15 <Pemander> Ari shuffles into the elevator.
Oct 18 00:03:41 <Pemander> "Still got the flash drive, right?"
Oct 18 00:06:38 <Dexanote> As the last of them steps in, the elevator slams shut, immediately rocketting them upwards. Not enough to throw them off their feet, but enough to knock their balance. The blood on the walls shifts and flickers, gradually drying and vanishing into grey dust.
Oct 18 00:06:50 <Dexanote> Once it arrives up top, the elevator slams into the ceiling, opening up.
Oct 18 00:07:04 <Echo> "*Jesus*."
Oct 18 00:07:04 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte stumbles.
Oct 18 00:07:34 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte slips out of the elevator.
Oct 18 00:07:50 <MonkeyBomb> "………."
Oct 18 00:08:13 <Gara> Emma walks out
Oct 18 00:08:17 <Maddy> Elle stomps out to the LAV and sits her ass down
Oct 18 00:08:20 <Pemander> Arianna rubs her head and leans against the wall just outside the elevator.
Oct 18 00:08:27 <Pemander> "I feel sick."
Oct 18 00:08:38 <Dexanote> Myr stumbles out, holding the flash drive and pressing against the wall.
Oct 18 00:08:45 <Gara> "That was bad."
Oct 18 00:08:58 <Echo> "Ari."
Oct 18 00:09:43 <MonkeyBomb> <Are you alright?> Charlotte goes over to Arianna.
Oct 18 00:11:16 <Pemander> She waves a hand silently.
Oct 18 00:12:13 <MonkeyBomb> Charlotte sighs. <Can we leave this place now? Did we get everything we needed? I don't think any of us really want to go back in there….>
Oct 18 00:13:10 <MonkeyBomb> She still has no idea what the fuck just happened.
