(2:02:45 PM) E4D: A plastic bag blows in through the window where Kay is, smacking her in the face.

(2:03:33 PM) Dexanote: Shank is wandering around
(2:03:48 PM) PaulS_laptop: John is checking over the explosives. Again. Something's got him really rather tetchy lately.
(2:05:13 PM) Dodridge [PI.57859BDB.5B8DAF65.392216F3|tibbiM#PI.57859BDB.5B8DAF65.392216F3|tibbiM] entered the room.
(2:05:34 PM) Dodridge: Alex, Ghost, and Shank all notice the rather large beetles making their way into the hotel's ground floor.
(2:05:44 PM) Dodridge: Their eyes glow with a faint silvery light.
(2:05:54 PM) Rights: ~Uhm….~
(2:06:05 PM) Ragazzo: "…hmmm?"

(2:06:16 PM) Rights: The ghost looks around for somebody to make her observation to. ~Dusty…there's bugs.~
(2:06:17 PM) Ragazzo: Wait, no, dusty sin't near enough to hear ghost./
(2:06:19 PM) Dodridge: One of them stops, looking up at Ghost.
(2:06:23 PM) Ragazzo: Or is he?
(2:06:26 PM) Rights: oh well fuckthen
(2:06:30 PM) *
MartinSage is spaced out and late.
(2:06:40 PM) Laito: Aelx wanders, tracing the beetles.
(2:06:56 PM) Dodridge: He notices them as well, a few crawling up the wall to his rooftop position.
(2:07:03 PM) PaulS_laptop: 4df John's perception sucks, especially since he's not paying attention
(2:07:03 PM) Glacon: PaulS_laptop: John's perception sucks, especially since he's not paying attention: -2 (4df=-, +, -, -)
(2:07:11 PM) Rights: Ghost looks back at it. ~….Hello.~ She tries to say.
(2:07:19 PM) Dexanote: "…"
(2:07:19 PM) Rights: Do beetles talk? There was that cricket that talked.
(2:07:29 PM) Dexanote: "… Aight, so when'd we meet Bugman?"
(2:07:33 PM) *MartinSage frowns and looks at the beetles. Not being an entomologist, he simply watches where the stream is going. There sure is a lot.
(2:07:35 PM) PaulS_laptop: John checks over his explosives again. And then finds a small box with his name on it
(2:07:36 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty follows the ghost's line of sight.
(2:07:43 PM) Ragazzo: "….shiiiiiiiit."
(2:08:02 PM) MartinSage: «What's with the bug?»
(2:08:07 PM) MartinSage: «bugs, even,»
(2:08:15 PM) Dodridge: Ghost, mental defense.
(2:08:29 PM) PaulS_laptop: «What bugs? We got shit incoming?» John picks up the little box and fiddles with it, before attempting to open it
(2:08:29 PM) Rights: 4df+4
(2:08:30 PM) Glacon: Rights: 5 (4df+4=0, +, +, -)
(2:08:31 PM) Ragazzo: "Shank, their eyes. It's the same bullshit as last night."
(2:08:35 PM) E4D left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(2:08:39 PM) mode (+o Dexanote) by ChanServ
(2:08:59 PM) Dexanote: "… Ah fuck."
(2:09:03 PM) MartinSage: «There's a line of bigass bugs crawling into the hotel, some of them up here on the roof. Come to the poolside of the roof and look.»
(2:09:12 PM) Ragazzo: "Ghost, get the hell away from them."
(2:09:22 PM) Dexanote: 4df+6 tagging Agriculture Goes Oi to slash at the bugs.

(2:09:39 PM) *
Laito squats down before a beetle specimen, studying it.
(2:09:52 PM) Rights: ~Holy shit~ The problem is evident when Ghost become visable, a form outlined by reddish-purple flames, via=sable to all.
(2:10:02 PM) Rights: *visable
(2:10:12 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty runs to grab one of his special molotovs.
(2:10:20 PM) PaulS_laptop: «Will do in a sec. Got somethin here to take care of» John looks at it. The smell from the flesh clothes inside the box is kind of like rot and death.
(2:10:22 PM) Dexanote: "… great."
(2:10:33 PM) Dexanote: Shank readies himself. "GET BACK."
(2:10:45 PM) *MartinSage still doesn't see a problem and can't see everyon flipping out. «Kinda weird, they are marching in a line or something.»
(2:11:00 PM) PaulS_laptop: John sets the box down for now, and steps over to meet Mr. Sage, with the flamethrower
(2:11:15 PM) PaulS_laptop: «Kay, did you leave me something?»
(2:11:24 PM) *
MartinSage is still sitting on the wall of the root, watching the bugs tromp around to wherever it is bugs like to go.
(2:11:31 PM) Rights: The ghost tires to soar up into the air, to get away from the bugs, batting at herself in a vain attempt to put out the "flames"
(2:11:39 PM) Dawny: «What would make you ask?»
(2:11:41 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Yo, sage, where you seeing them?"
(2:11:49 PM) *MartinSage points off to his right.
(2:11:52 PM) Dexanote: Shank watches from the ground. «In tha sky.»
(2:11:52 PM) PaulS_laptop: «Someone left me a box with rotting flesh and a nutty bar»
(2:11:54 PM) MartinSage: "Big fuckers."
(2:12:02 PM) Dodridge: He catches one or two with every swipe, each of them melting down into a black fluid and boiling into the air.
(2:12:14 PM) PaulS_laptop: "We gonna engage?"
(2:12:21 PM) Dawny: «Does that sound like something I'd do?» Kay heads toward the roof, nomming a nutty bar.
(2:12:28 PM) MartinSage: "Engage….bugs? Am I missing something?"
(2:12:32 PM) Dodridge: They walk toward the hotel from all directions, a few here and there, their shiny black carapaces easily visible in the sunlight.
(2:12:33 PM) Rights: Who's nearest to Ghost?
(2:12:34 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty comes back with the molotov. He lobs it at wherever they're thickest clustered.
(2:12:43 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Giant bugs."
(2:12:45 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty!
(2:12:52 PM) Dodridge: They stop outside of the hotel, forming a ring, a little insectoid circumference.
(2:12:53 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Do we burn them, or not?"
(2:13:05 PM) PaulS_laptop: «We'll talk later, Kay»
(2:13:10 PM) MartinSage: "Look like beetles or something. I don't know, why would we burn bugs? It's Australia after all."
(2:13:14 PM) Laito: Alex finds his way outside.
(2:13:22 PM) MartinSage: «Hey Skipper, what do we do about this bug problem?»
(2:13:23 PM) Dawny: Kay steps toward John and Sage. «Copy.» "What's up guys?"
(2:13:34 PM) Rights: The ghost, a visable figure wreathed in flame, lurches towards Dusty in the air….and tries her damndest to choke him out. Wellp, crap.
(2:13:43 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Bugs"
(2:13:44 PM) Rights: 4df+6 holy shit solidity
(2:13:45 PM) Glacon: Rights: holy shit solidity: 6 (4df+6=-, -, +, +)

MartinSage wordlessly points to the line of beetles marching along.

(2:13:57 PM) Dexanote: «IT'S GOT THA GHOST.»
(2:14:07 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Whelp, guess that's a yes"
(2:14:12 PM) MartinSage: «What?»
(2:14:13 PM) Laito: "Oh my."
(2:14:15 PM) Dexanote: 4df+3
(2:14:16 PM) Glacon: Dexanote: 1 (4df+3=+, -, -, -)
(2:14:23 PM) *MartinSage frowns and stands up, bringing his rifle to low ready.
(2:14:25 PM) Dexanote: Shank tries to get to Dusty
(2:14:26 PM) MartinSage: "Well then."
(2:14:27 PM) Rights: Dusty is being choked out.
(2:14:31 PM) Dexanote: I presume he trips a bit
(2:14:33 PM) Dodridge: Dusty can feel the air being choked out of him, the flames on Ghost's "body" turning deep purple where she touches him.
(2:14:46 PM) PaulS_laptop: 4df+6 Tagging "and the answer is a gun" "Shall we?". Flamethrower from the rooftops
(2:14:46 PM) Glacon: PaulS_laptop: Tagging "and the answer is a gun" "Shall we?". Flamethrower from the rooftops: 6 (4df+6=+, 0, -, 0)
(2:15:04 PM) *
MartinSage murmurs "…and it was such a nice hotel."
(2:15:34 PM) Rights left the room.
(2:15:38 PM) Laito: Alex barely resists the urge to casually comment on Dusty's inclination toward choking, consensual or non-consensual.
(2:15:45 PM) Dodridge: The flames burn away a huge swath of the motionless insects, the flame turning some strange shade of a… hollow black, the grey and red swirling into an oily, dark color.
(2:15:46 PM) Rights [~PI.BF0EFC49.1A349E52.3D65DC1F|ahtagA#PI.BF0EFC49.1A349E52.3D65DC1F|ahtagA] entered the room.
(2:15:57 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty makes the sounds one attributes to being choking.
(2:16:00 PM) Dexanote: Shank skids to a stop. He pauses to consider the situation.
(2:16:04 PM) Dodridge: Ghost maintains her grip, not letting go.
(2:16:10 PM) Ragazzo: He scrabbles for the second dyusty special he got.
(2:16:16 PM) Dexanote: let dusty die, or get involved and be hurt by 333.
(2:16:18 PM) Dexanote: Hm.
(2:16:26 PM) Ragazzo: And tries to glass Ghost in the face.
(2:16:30 PM) Lurker [~moc.yvvasket.elbac.164F0D37-CRInys|i.yellaCJ#moc.yvvasket.elbac.164F0D37-CRInys|i.yellaCJ] entered the room.
(2:17:01 PM) *Laito looks at Shank, apparently sticking with the first option himself.
(2:17:12 PM) Dexanote: Shank nods at Laito.
(2:17:14 PM) Rights: The ghost reels back, and she dissappears, the flames dissipating.
(2:17:28 PM) Rights: ~JESUS FUCKIN' CHRIST~ She bellows, though only Dusty can hear. ~~ARE YOU OKAY~
(2:17:29 PM) Ragazzo: "Fucking hell…"
(2:17:36 PM) Ragazzo: "AH!"
(2:17:50 PM) Ragazzo: "Yeah, fine, christ. How are you?"
(2:18:06 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty rubs his throat.
(2:18:12 PM) Ragazzo: Very hoarse whisper.
(2:18:25 PM) Rights: ~Did I just choke you out?~
(2:18:36 PM) Soulless [~ude.olaffub.sseleriw.75D1D3B-CRInys|sselluoS#ude.olaffub.sseleriw.75D1D3B-CRInys|sselluoS] entered the room.
(2:18:39 PM) Ragazzo: "*Almost*."
(2:18:40 PM) Dodridge: The beetles begin climbing over each other, some of them combusting and melting down into a flowing liquid, little bits of glinting carapace visible in the inky substance.
(2:18:47 PM) Ragazzo: "I feel like you owe me a date, jesus."
(2:18:55 PM) Ragazzo: "….fffuuuuck."
(2:19:01 PM) Rights: ~Don't get a boner yet. Well, fuck.~
(2:19:04 PM) Ragazzo: "This isn't over yet?"
(2:19:08 PM) *
MartinSage frowns at the yelling and steps over to the side of the roof and yells down, "What the fuck's going on down there?"
(2:19:08 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Burn you sonsabitches"
(2:19:11 PM) Ragazzo: "God damn it."
(2:19:13 PM) Dodridge: They form into a shape Dusty would recognize from yesterday, a large, heavy, humanoid form, bulky in stature, black as night.
(2:19:21 PM) Dexanote: Shank readies, stepping back form the shape.
(2:19:24 PM) Rights: THe ghost drifts towards the hotel. As much as she enjoyed her fleeting grasp of being corporeal again….nope.
(2:19:27 PM) Rights: Nope.avi
(2:19:28 PM) Dodridge: Four points of light flare into existence on its head.
(2:19:47 PM) Rights: ~aaaaaa~
(2:19:59 PM) *Laito slips his hands into his pockets. "So what's all that then?"
(2:20:01 PM) PaulS_laptop: 4df+6 and the answer is a gun. Flamethrower before it speaks

(2:20:30 PM) Soulless: "I thought we had wards for this?"
(2:20:30 PM) Dodridge: 4df+6
(2:20:31 PM) Glacon: Dodridge: 7 (4df+6=0, 0, 0, +)
(2:20:37 PM) Dawny: "What's going on Sir?"
(2:20:57 PM) Dodridge: The flame wraps around it, licking, lashing, and the inferno is absorbed into its body, turning dark purple.
(2:21:09 PM) Dodridge: It looks up at John.
(2:21:24 PM) Laito: "Ah… yah." Alex nods sagely.
(2:21:31 PM) Ragazzo: "…."
(2:21:35 PM) PaulS_laptop: 4df+4
(2:21:36 PM) Glacon: PaulS_laptop: 6 (4df+4=+, +, -, +)
(2:21:40 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty rubs his temples, thinking.
(2:21:41 PM) Dexanote: "s' out for blood."

(2:22:43 PM) PaulS_laptop: John is lifted from his perch, again bleeding from his face, and is gently carried through the air to float several feet in front of the thing.
(2:23:06 PM) Dexanote: 4df+4 Shank launches himself at the black shape and smashes the Scythe down
(2:23:07 PM) Glacon: Dexanote: Shank launches himself at the black shape and smashes the Scythe down: 3 (4df+4=+, -, -, 0)
(2:23:17 PM) Dawny: Kay drops her nutty bar, watching John.
(2:23:36 PM) Dodridge: The thing takes a few shaky steps forward, testing its most recent form.
(2:23:43 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty runs at the figure, a burning lighter in one hand.
(2:23:57 PM) Dodridge: A black hand with 8 digits reaches up to grab his jaw, turning it side to side.
(2:23:58 PM) Ragazzo: 4df+8 Alchemy, tapping fwoosh, dumping all points for -2.

(2:24:29 PM) Dodridge: It swats Dusty away, sending him flying into the hotel's front door, breaking it in half.
(2:24:46 PM) Dodridge: «< so much different than before »>
(2:25:08 PM) Dodridge: «< but these forms… they will do… »>
(2:25:15 PM) Soulless: "Everyone, we need to get out of here immediately!"
(2:25:33 PM) Dodridge: It turns its head to the side, its entire form quivering, shaking, convulsing.
(2:25:41 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty flings the lighter away, and quickly tears off any burning clothing.
(2:25:44 PM) MartinSage: "Oh fuck that."
(2:25:55 PM) Dodridge: «< you will tell them all that was wrought in the city »>
(2:26:01 PM) Dexanote: 4df+4 Shank swings the back of teh Scythe at the thing

(2:26:34 PM) Laito: Alex merely watches as the fools throw themselves at the thing. His keen eyes observe the thing for interesting points of vulnerability. Burning a fate point to move 2 points from Persuasion to Perception.

(2:28:18 PM) Dodridge: There's a bright, silvery flash, and then all light fades, nothing visible in the sky save for a pale grey sun, the surrounding area bathed in twilight.
(2:28:39 PM) Dodridge: The thing burns more intensely, consuming itself, and John is released to collapse in a heap.
(2:29:01 PM) Dexanote: Shank falls to one side, half-severed. Red sparks are flying from his face
(2:29:26 PM) PaulS_laptop: John thumps down
(2:29:40 PM) Dodridge: The thing vanishes, and with its absence, day returns, the sun hanging high in the sky.
(2:30:12 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty struggles over, to shank, and hefts the scarecrow, having pulled on his gloves. Fuck, his everything hurts.
(2:30:24 PM) Soulless: Alicel shakes his head. «Jason, if you are here, we should pack up and leave this city.»
(2:30:29 PM) Ragazzo: "You dead?"
(2:30:38 PM) Rights: The ghost peers back out, throught he walls of the hotel, and slowly makes her way over to Dusty and Shank.
(2:30:38 PM) *
MartinSage vaults over hte roof railing, skids down the roof, and flips over the side, running over to his friend.
(2:30:53 PM) Dexanote: "I'll be alright get tha fuck off me." He shoves Dusty and tries to reattach parts.
(2:30:56 PM) MartinSage: "Hey fuckstick, you ok?" He says, covering his friend as he looks around.

(2:31:56 PM) Ragazzo: "Shank, how do you feel about having a body that won't fall to shit in a stiff breeze the next time that asshole shows up?"
(2:31:58 PM) Soulless: Alicel goes to grab Kay's med bag. He runs over to her with it.
(2:32:03 PM) Ragazzo: "Don't worry about it, ghost."
(2:32:05 PM) Soulless: "Here."
(2:32:06 PM) Dodridge: He's good, if a bit exsanguinated.
(2:32:07 PM) Soulless: He hands it over.
(2:32:11 PM) Dodridge: No obvious injuries.
(2:32:18 PM) Dodridge: Maybe some trauma to his eyes.
(2:32:20 PM) Dawny: "John, John…can you hear me?" Is he even awake?
(2:32:25 PM) Laito: Alex walks toward Dusty and Shank, settling 'in' Ghost where she stands. ~Oh hi there~.
(2:32:59 PM) Dodridge: «Sage, what's the deal?»
(2:33:01 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Fuck"
(2:33:21 PM) Soulless: Alicel is hesitant to touch John. "John? How do you feel?"
(2:33:34 PM) Dawny: "Okay, are you hurt?" I check his eyes with a penlight, looking for signs of concussion.
(2:33:34 PM) Dexanote: "How do you feel about shuttin up."
(2:33:44 PM) Dawny: "Don't touch him yet"
(2:33:53 PM) Soulless: "Understood."
(2:34:02 PM) Dodridge: If anything, it looks like extreme pressure rupturing blood vessels in the eye.
(2:34:04 PM) Ragazzo: "How do you feel abotu getting your ass kicked? I'm offering some god damn help."

(2:34:36 PM) MartinSage: «It disappeared soon after.»
(2:34:38 PM) Rights: ~Gah. Hi Alex.~
(2:34:46 PM) Dexanote: *cut
(2:34:52 PM) MartinSage: "Hey. Anyone catch what it said? I didn't hear it well."
(2:34:58 PM) PaulS_laptop: "how do you think"
(2:35:10 PM) Dawny: "John, talk to me. I can't help you if you don't tell me what's wrong."
(2:35:11 PM) MartinSage: «It said some shit over the radio, but I didn't quite catch it.»
(2:35:18 PM) Dodridge: «Copy, recalling.»
(2:35:32 PM) Soulless: «It said 'you will tell them all what was wrought in the city'»
(2:35:37 PM) Laito: ~You're looking hot today.~ Is that a joke? Oh dear, yes, that is a joke at her expense.
(2:35:53 PM) MartinSage left the room (Leaving).
(2:35:58 PM) MartinSage [||esaCH] entered the room.
(2:36:08 PM) Rights: ~…~ The ghost sincerely considers raping his brain. ~…thanks.~ INstead she just says taht, dripping with sarcasm.
(2:36:25 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty goes off to presumably nurse his battered body. Also his player is abotu to head out.
(2:36:40 PM) Laito: There is a moment of notable electricity from his brain. It's a dare.
(2:37:44 PM) Ragazzo left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(2:37:46 PM) Rights: ~….it was kinda nice being solid again there. Even if I was a pupppet.~
(2:38:13 PM) Laito: ~Interesting from the other side, isn't it?~
(2:38:25 PM) Soulless: «Is anyone wounded beyond John, Shank and Dusty?»
(2:38:38 PM) Rights: ~Yeah, but I don't make people choke their friends out.~
(2:38:49 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Fuckin 333"
(2:39:25 PM) Laito: ~Dusty likes it.~
(2:39:28 PM) PaulS_laptop: John wipes himself off and sits up. shakily.
(2:39:38 PM) Rights: ~That doesn't make it any better.~
(2:39:40 PM) Soulless: "John, is there any trauma mentally?"
(2:39:45 PM) Rights: ~I've /been/ in his head.‘
(2:39:53 PM) Dexanote: Shank sighs, vanishes.
(2:40:01 PM) Laito: ~I bet it’s as damaged as I think it is.~
(2:40:24 PM) Rights: ~You have no idea. It's abotu as unpleasent as Dmitri's brain.~
(2:40:41 PM) PaulS_laptop: "I'm fine"
(2:40:48 PM) Dawny: "Okay, John, how do you feel?"
(2:40:56 PM) Laito: ~More sad, less abused.~ Alex nods sagely.
(2:40:57 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Like hell"
(2:41:36 PM) Rights: ~Not how I would put it.~
(2:41:55 PM) Dawny: "Okay, you check out fine…except some hemorrhaging with your eyes…"
(2:42:13 PM) Dodridge: John, mental defense.
(2:42:21 PM) PaulS_laptop: 4df+4 not again!
(2:42:21 PM) Glacon: PaulS_laptop: not again!: 2 (4df+4=-, 0, -, 0)
(2:43:18 PM) Soulless: Alicel is over John like a child over their parental figure. He hovers anxiously, wanting to right the situation but with no knowledge as to what to do.
(2:44:27 PM) PaulS_laptop: A dim whisper echoes in John's mind.
(2:44:44 PM) PaulS_laptop: «< you have been charged »>
(2:44:52 PM) Laito: Alex takes a few steps back from where he stands.
(2:45:14 PM) Dexanote: Bruce wakes up.
(2:45:36 PM) Dexanote: He rolls out from under a bush and stares in horror in John's general direction.
(2:46:28 PM) Rights: ~…I don't like this situation, Alex. We shoudl be moving out of here like there's a fire under our asses.~
(2:46:29 PM) Dodridge: Bruce, mental defense
(2:47:06 PM) Dexanote: 4df+2
(2:47:07 PM) Laito: ~Likely.~ Alex looks over to John. ~Want a ride?~
(2:47:07 PM) Glacon: Dexanote: 3 (4df+2=-, 0, +, +)
(2:47:08 PM) Dexanote:
(2:47:17 PM) PaulS_laptop: ~whereto?~
(2:49:29 PM) Soulless: Alicel is looking around for any more dangers. Sucks to be him, being unable to sense shit.
(2:49:40 PM) Laito: Ahem, Alex is merely looking at John, not thinking at him. He was thinking at Ghost.
(2:50:25 PM) Dodridge: A silvery light flares where The Bruce's eyes are, for just a moment.
(2:50:37 PM) Dodridge: «< *MROW* »>
(2:50:48 PM) Dexanote: Apologies, i was afk. ^that happens
(2:51:00 PM) Dodridge: The Bruce shakes his head, then returns to his old, derpy self.
(2:51:17 PM) Soulless: Alicel looks over at Bruce. For a second he thought… must be a glitch in his inputs. He directs his attention back at John.
(2:51:34 PM) Soulless: "John, do you need anything? Water, other fluids to regain your blood?"
(2:51:47 PM) Rights: ~I'm okay, Alex. I'm alright as I am.~
(2:52:48 PM) PaulS_laptop: John pulls the small dewar off his hip and siiiiiips coffee
(2:53:50 PM) Soulless: It seems John is fine then. Alicel pets John on the shoulder, gets up and moves back to the pool. He passes Bruce along the way, kneeling to pet Bruce.
(2:54:01 PM) Soulless: "Hello Bruce, good afternoon."
(2:54:11 PM) Laito: ~Talk to Jason. He'll see reason, I'm sure.~ If there is nothing of further note in the area, he'll go back inside.
(2:54:43 PM) Rights: ~I already need to talk wih him…~ And the ghsot dissipates.
(2:54:51 PM) Dexanote: "Myow."
(2:56:11 PM) Dodridge: As if on cue, a heavily-geared figure rounds a corner down the street. «DRIFTWOOD, DRIFTWOOD, DRIFTWOOD.»
(2:56:16 PM) Soulless: "Did you sleep well? How is the world with you?" Alicel continues his gentle petting, apparently just needing some stability in this chaos, and Bruce will always be Bruce.
(2:58:37 PM) Dexanote: "Myow mow."
(2:59:24 PM) Dawny: Kay produces a cool compact for John's eyes. "Close your eyes please John."
(3:01:11 PM) Dodridge: «I'm here. We got any casualties?»
(3:01:27 PM) Soulless: "Are you trying to say something? Considering you were made from Dusty's alchemy, you could probably sense things, right? Did you sense anything last night or a little while ago?" Alicel is petting and talking to a cat that can't talk back. Like a derp.
(3:02:04 PM) Dexanote: He rolls over on his back
(3:02:29 PM) Soulless: "Hmm… I don't know what that means." Alicel pets the belly gently to avoid getting cut.
(3:02:45 PM) Soulless: «Jason, we were attacked again. May we please leave?»
(3:03:58 PM) Dawny: «Nothing serious…except, I haven't checked Dusty yet.»

(3:08:22 PM) Dawny: Kay presses the cool cloth against John's eyes and sighs. "Sit there for a few minutes and try to relax"
(3:10:31 PM) Dodridge: Jason considers his options for a few moments, then raises his remote mic. «All stations, rack 'em and pack 'em. Grab your shit, collect anything you want to take, and load your shit. We're gone in 20.»
(3:10:58 PM) PaulS_laptop: John drags his sorry ass up the stairs to haul down his shit.
(3:11:00 PM) MartinSage: «Wilco»
(3:11:06 PM) PaulS_laptop: «Gotcha»
(3:11:26 PM) Dawny: Kay heads inside and grabs her stuff, then goes back for Dmitri and Misha's as well.
(3:11:36 PM) Soulless: Alicel walks to the pool to splash around, saying goodbye to his one source of entertainment in the lonely nights. He then starts helping everyone move their stuff.
(3:11:56 PM) *MartinSage sprints down to his room and packs what little amount of gear he has, then runs to Eve, lashing it inside and conducting an inspection of the vehicles while everyone loads up.
(3:12:55 PM) PaulS_laptop: John loads up his explosives onto Eve. He wants the FUCK out of here.
(3:12:56 PM) Dawny: Kay climbs into the stryker and waits.
(3:12:56 PM) PaulS_laptop: but bleeding from your face twice in 24hrs kinda drains you
(3:13:10 PM) Dexanote: Shank appears next to Jason, leaning on the Scythe. He looks around. "… Bout fucking time, i think."
(3:13:13 PM) Soulless: "John, you have lost a lot of blood. Please let me move your belongings and rest with Kay."
(3:13:37 PM) PaulS_laptop: "No."
(3:13:48 PM) Soulless: "Ok."
(3:14:08 PM) Soulless: Alicel gives John a cautious look as he goes to fetch Bruce.
(3:14:10 PM) PaulS_laptop: He continues to pile his gear up. He's still got the flamethrower, and bloody shirt on.
(3:14:21 PM) Soulless: "Bruce, Bruce we're leaving. Do you want to get left behind?"
(3:14:21 PM) Dodridge: "You good to hold a rifle if we move, John?"
(3:14:29 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Yeah"
(3:14:35 PM) *
MartinSage is crawling over Eve now, checking the bindings on the rack.
(3:14:41 PM) PaulS_laptop: "I'll take Florence's turret"

(3:14:55 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Yeah?"
(3:15:12 PM) *MartinSage throws a bag of beef jerky at him. "It's my last, so save me a bit, you fucker." He disappears back to the Eve.
(3:15:24 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Yo, thanks"
(3:15:31 PM) PaulS_laptop: John grabs a bit, then tosses it back
(3:16:13 PM) Soulless: Alicel thinks for a moment to suggest to help drive one of the vehicles, then decides against it. Suggesting shit isn't met with great enthusiasm. He runs his hand over Eve's side, then over that of Florence.
(3:16:21 PM) Dawny: Kay pops out of the stryker and shakes her head. "John Williamson! Get your ASS in here!"
