(3:31:44 PM) Maddy: Jesus. Kens is the only one who hears http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDrBPGcGcUA playing faintly over his radio, as if it's coming from a great distance.
(3:31:44 PM) Quidmore: Maddy: Fable 3 Soundtrack - Reaver Mansion - length 11m 11s - rated 4.95/5.0 (80) - 8,025 views - xCosmicJohnx on 2011.01.04
(3:32:12 PM) Dr_Kens: "Huh. Does anyone else hear the music?"
(3:32:17 PM) Tom90deg: "What music?"
(3:32:32 PM) Dr_Kens: "Dum duuumm..dum dum, du du dumm…."
(3:32:34 PM) Maddy: Anyone with a radio will notice it once it's pointed out.
(3:32:41 PM) Maddy: It's just really really quiet.
(3:32:52 PM) Tom90deg: "Huh…Weird. Is there a radio station around here?"
(3:32:59 PM) E4D: Jason dials up the volume. "The fuck?"
(3:33:27 PM) Dr_Kens: "It's…really good…" Kens hums softly with the music.
(3:33:34 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Hm?"
(3:33:52 PM) Maddy: As Jason turns up the radio, they all turn up, and you can hear people laughing and talking. Sounds like theres a party.
(3:33:54 PM) E4D: «Hey, anyone getting random crap over their comm?»
(3:34:23 PM) Dr_Kens: «I hear it, Jason…sounds like people.»
(3:34:38 PM) Sabitsuki: Tau stands up and leaves her tent with her radio in her hand, looking off into the desert.
(3:34:39 PM) PaulS_laptop: «Yep. Real faint. Can't make out what it is from here. Music maybe?»
(3:35:02 PM) Tom90deg: "Yah, some kinda music…sounds a bit like guitar."
(3:35:03 PM) Maddy: Tau, sounds like it's coming from the north
(3:35:19 PM) Sabitsuki: She sniffs idly and looks off to the north.
(3:35:21 PM) PaulS_laptop: «Someone get me a banjo»
(3:35:27 PM) Sabitsuki: Walking a short distance that way.
(3:35:36 PM) Dr_Kens: "Tau, did you notice something?"
(3:35:43 PM) Maddy: Perception again. Jsut Tau
(3:36:07 PM) Sabitsuki: 4df+3 Both my good eyes
(3:36:08 PM) Quidmore: Sabitsuki: Both my good eyes: 5 (4df+3=+, 0, +, 0)
(3:37:34 PM) Maddy: Wow, what the hell. Tau spots, waaaay off in the distance, what looks like a few buildings. Funny, they weren't there before.
(3:38:21 PM) Sabitsuki: She squints and raises the radio idly to her mouth. «There are buildings out here.»
(3:38:31 PM) Tom90deg: "I thought we were in the middle of nowhere?"
(3:38:32 PM) PaulS_laptop: «what?»
(3:38:32 PM) Dr_Kens: «Say whaaaat»
(3:38:42 PM) Sabitsuki: «Come here.»
(3:38:49 PM) Dr_Kens: Kens walks out to Tau.
(3:38:52 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe gets up and heads over to TAu
(3:39:02 PM) E4D: «Copy, stand by.»
(3:39:34 PM) Maddy: Yep, definitely buildings. Can't tell much more from here. As the group gets a little closer, the music gets louder. It's still very quiet though.
(3:39:47 PM) E4D: A 16x scope is a throw-lever away, and Jason's on his way.
(3:40:05 PM) E4D: He sights in on the structures through the scope. Anything? Movement? People?
(3:40:16 PM) PaulS_laptop: John walks over towards Tau. He's armed as fuck. Nothing with a big scope, though
(3:40:24 PM) Sabitsuki: Tau points out at the buildings.
(3:40:38 PM) Tom90deg: "Were those there before? I admit i've been sleeping a lot…"
(3:41:02 PM) E4D: "Nope. Only town's Port Augusta, to the the southeast."
(3:41:30 PM) Maddy: Nothing, the building is in the way, but with the closer look, it's seems like a financial building of some sort. From this angle, it looks like there could be thee, maybe 4 large bank buildings, all facing inwards in a square.
(3:41:45 PM) RAgazzo [ten.llebcap.ac2tks.lsd.733D207B-CRInys|tibbiM#ten.llebcap.ac2tks.lsd.733D207B-CRInys|tibbiM] entered the room.
(3:41:46 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Does this remind you of anything? Like that one time we got stuck in that one city in a song?"
(3:41:54 PM) RAgazzo is now known as Ragazzo
(3:42:07 PM) Tom90deg: "A song? What now?"
(3:42:10 PM) Maddy: The sounds of peoples' laughter and song is also much more clear now
(3:42:34 PM) Doctor_Light: The birdman wanders out of the grass from behind them, carrying the partially flesh-stripped head of a deer behind him. He crows, curiously.
(3:42:44 PM) E4D: "Didn't go on that one." Jason sighs, taking his eye away from the optic, slinging the weapon. "We got a bunch of buildings where there wasn't none before."
(3:42:48 PM) Dr_Kens: "It's getting louder…"
(3:42:50 PM) E4D: "Guys want to check it out?"
(3:42:58 PM) PaulS_laptop: "It sucked. And I've got a bad feeling"
(3:43:04 PM) PaulS_laptop: "May as well"
(3:43:13 PM) Tom90deg: "Sure."
(3:43:25 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty nods, getting up.
(3:43:34 PM) Sabitsuki: "Looks like the financial district back at Bordeaux." Tau picks a mite of rust out of her mechanical eye.
(3:43:49 PM) E4D: "Taking El Diablo."
(3:43:51 PM) Dr_Kens: "Well, what say we check it out?"
(3:44:46 PM) E4D: "Hi, Birdman."
(3:45:01 PM) Doctor_Light: "People in buildings? Singing?"
(3:45:14 PM) E4D: Jason turns from the small collective, heading for El Diablo. He hops up on the back of the humvee and drops down into the turret.
(3:45:49 PM) Sabitsuki: Tau runs an idle hand through her hair (getting long, gonna need a haircut) and then goes to get in the humvee.
(3:45:51 PM) Dr_Kens: Kens walks over to the humvee with his rifle, med pack, and science kit.
(3:46:04 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty looks curiously at the buildings for a bit, and then hops into to the humvee.
(3:46:11 PM) PaulS_laptop: John walks over and hops in. He clanks.
(3:48:06 PM) E4D: "Anyone know how to drive this thing?"
(3:48:15 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdman blinks and climbs onto the rear of the humvee.
(3:48:59 PM) PaulS_laptop: "You really don't want me to"
(3:49:08 PM) Sabitsuki: Tau looks at present company before crawling up into the driver's seat. "I'll do it."
(3:50:54 PM) Sabitsuki: She turns the engine over, and as soon as everyone is in their proper place, drives out towards the buildings.
(3:51:33 PM) Rights left the room (quit: Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
(3:52:12 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdman frowns, and peers at the buildings. Buildings are not just supposed to appear.
(3:52:51 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty's also staring at those sneaky, surreptitious structures.
(3:54:30 PM) Maddy: As they get closer, they notice the buildings are old and crumbly. They look like they've been abandoned for a long, long time. One building is a TD Canada Trust, another, Bank of America, the third, UBS. You can't see the forth from here.
(3:55:06 PM) Ragazzo: "…looks like you were right about the financial district thing."
(3:55:06 PM) Dr_Kens: "…these are a lot of banks…what's with them?"
(3:55:23 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Dunno. Maybe there'll be some stuff to liberate there?"
(3:55:28 PM) Tom90deg: "Hmm…Banks…"
(3:55:42 PM) Tom90deg: "Something I know about…don't reconize these though."
(3:55:49 PM) Ragazzo: "A shame there's no point in breaking in, Zoe."
(3:55:54 PM) E4D: "What are we gonna liberate from a bank?"
(3:56:01 PM) Ragazzo: "Well, not for money, at least."
(3:56:18 PM) Tom90deg: "Well, if we ever have to trade, precious metals almost always work."
(3:56:48 PM) E4D: "…"
(3:56:49 PM) Tom90deg: "Hehe, I doubt they take bottlecaps."
(3:57:06 PM) Maddy: There are no windows, they've all long since been broken. There are vines covering the brick and glass work. the doors re also long since gone.
(3:57:13 PM) E4D: "*Precious metals only matter if you consider them a luxury item.*"
(3:57:28 PM) Ragazzo: "I can make those, anyway…"
(3:57:33 PM) Dr_Kens: "I could do with some palladium."
(3:57:41 PM) Tom90deg: "It's vauable cause it's rare. You give someone a lump of gold, they'll be very happy to trade."
(3:57:42 PM) Dr_Kens: Kens stares out at the scene.
(3:57:53 PM) Tom90deg: "You mean like those Cubix Zarconia when we tried to rent that boat?"
(3:58:02 PM) Ragazzo: "Shhh."
(3:58:05 PM) E4D: "You… ugh, never mind."
(3:58:15 PM) Tom90deg: "Can't beleive you gave that captain 1.4 million in what we thought were diamonds…"
(3:58:16 PM) Ragazzo: "That was a fluke."
(3:58:34 PM) Ragazzo: "I didn't need it."
(3:58:40 PM) Maddy: The music is very clear now, and not only coming through the radios, but also from what you might imagine is a courtyard in the middle of the buildings.
(3:58:40 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Shiny metal rocks are useful for lots of other things"
(3:58:57 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Plus, I've always wanted to take a shit in the lobby of a bank"
(3:59:05 PM) Ragazzo: "And gem made the zirconia…" He peters off to listen.
(3:59:07 PM) Tom90deg: "Should we head for the courtyard? And that is disgusting."
(3:59:27 PM) Maddy: You can hear the party going on. Sounds like they're having an excellent time.
(3:59:35 PM) E4D: «Hey, Tau? Take it in closer. Bring us in between a pair.»
(3:59:50 PM) Sabitsuki: «…Fine. I was just going to run them over.»
(4:00:26 PM) Maddy: The space between the buildings isn't big enough to drive through.
(4:00:36 PM) Ragazzo: "Parting after the end of the world…"
(4:00:40 PM) Ragazzo: *partying
(4:00:56 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Run them over? I love you."
(4:01:06 PM) Tom90deg: "Better than sinking into depression."
(4:01:07 PM) Dr_Kens: "That's how I would end it, if I weren't so keen on surviving."
(4:01:19 PM) Sabitsuki: «These buildings are too - thank you John - too clustered to squeeze through.»
(4:01:41 PM) Dr_Kens: "Going in by foot? Seems lovely."
(4:01:55 PM) Tom90deg: "Right then."
(4:02:21 PM) Ragazzo: "Well…worst case scenario they're crazy doom cultists having a rave?"
(4:02:29 PM) PaulS_laptop: "And then we kill them"
(4:02:40 PM) Dr_Kens: "And steal their shit."
(4:02:51 PM) Dr_Kens: Kens shakes his head. "Let's not do that yet."
(4:02:52 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdman clears his htroat. "Maybe go through buildings? More hiding places."
(4:02:57 PM) Tom90deg: "What if they're just…Normal people?"
(4:03:03 PM) Tom90deg: "Some kinda survivors?"
(4:03:16 PM) Dr_Kens: "We'll party with them…sorta"
(4:03:24 PM) Sabitsuki: "Not bloody likely." Tau stops the vehicle just outside the cluster.
(4:03:26 PM) E4D: Jason stand up in the turret, aand hops out, landing on the hood, then hopping off to the front.
(4:03:32 PM) Ragazzo: "Yeah…the random buildings are…concerning…"
(4:03:41 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty exhales getting out.
(4:03:41 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe teleports out of the Hummer and looks around.
(4:03:48 PM) PaulS_laptop: John steps out, 240 ready. He wouldn't mind killing some folk today.
(4:03:59 PM) Maddy: Is anyone peeking into the court yard?
(4:04:01 PM) Dr_Kens: Kens walks out, rifle at his side, pack on his back.
(4:04:01 PM) Sabitsuki: "Benders." Tau spits the word, checking the Desert Eagle in her hands.
(4:04:14 PM) Dr_Kens: Kens walks over to look at the court yard.
(4:04:19 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty peeks into the courtyard.
(4:04:36 PM) PaulS_laptop: John walks over to see, because why not
(4:04:37 PM) Doctor_Light: The birdman drops off the back of the Hummer, and follows Kens, crouching to see as he looks into the yard.
(4:04:46 PM) E4D: "Pffft, benders."
(4:05:00 PM) Tom90deg: "Maybe we should wait to kill them…"
(4:05:06 PM) E4D: Jason edges his rifle around a corner to look.
(4:05:19 PM) Ragazzo: "…why are you guys talking about getting drunk?"
(4:05:42 PM) PaulS_laptop: "I don't drink"
(4:06:28 PM) Sabitsuki: "Realty benders, Dusty. I've killed a couple. Captured one who was trying to make his life into a Harry Potter fan fiction." She advances just behind Jason.
(4:06:58 PM) Tom90deg: "Really…Well, that would be intresting."
(4:07:02 PM) PaulS_laptop: "We've had our share of fun with benders, haven't we, Jason?"
(4:07:14 PM) Tom90deg: "I mean, I'm a fan of JK, but that's a bit extreme."
(4:07:17 PM) Maddy: Anyone looking sees a party! There are at least a hundred people from all walks of life chatting a laughing. Many of them are wearing clothes from countries around the world. A couple here and there don't look completely human. They're all wearing masks that cover their faces from the nose up. The masks are fox shaped.
(4:07:22 PM) Maddy: There's a large table in the centre of the yard, covered in food and drink. A figure sits at the head of the table.
(4:07:29 PM) E4D: Jason says nothing, but grins.
(4:07:33 PM) E4D: And then frowns.
(4:07:44 PM) Dr_Kens: "Hm. Looks bustling."
(4:08:01 PM) Ragazzo: "…." Dusty rubs over his eyes.
(4:08:26 PM) Maddy: You can't get a good look at the person at the table.
(4:08:27 PM) Ragazzo: 4df+4 Occult, what does dusty know about the people/things he's looking at
(4:08:28 PM) Quidmore: Ragazzo: Occult, what does dusty know about the people/things he's looking at: 4 (4df+4=+, 0, 0, -)
(4:08:36 PM) Tom90deg: "Hm…looks somewhat calm. In a party kinda way."
(4:08:43 PM) PaulS_laptop: A smile cracks on John's face "you know, I could go for something to eat right about now."
(4:09:06 PM) Ragazzo: "They're all wearing masks…"
(4:09:16 PM) E4D: Jason heads back to the humvee.
(4:09:20 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty is frowning intensely.
(4:09:42 PM) Dr_Kens: "It's a masquerade!" Kens grins. "Let's go talk with the guy at the table. Seems like he's the head of the party."
(4:09:59 PM) Tom90deg: "I don't know…i mena, what kinda food is that? I say we look inside the bank first."
(4:10:04 PM) E4D: He returns a few moments later with his helmet on, cerrying the dismounted .50.
(4:10:05 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Or we chould just shoot him and save the hassle of something terrible happening. Again."
(4:10:10 PM) Tom90deg: "maybe get a overhead view on the party."
(4:10:14 PM) Ragazzo: "I say we just leave."
(4:10:19 PM) Maddy: The figure at the table turns as Kens speaks. A couple closer guests turn as well.
(4:10:25 PM) Tom90deg: "What? Shoot him? Why?"
(4:10:26 PM) Ragazzo: "…shit."
(4:10:30 PM) Sabitsuki: "I say we all stop talking before they hear - oh for fucks sake."
(4:10:33 PM) PaulS_laptop: John nods to Jason, and switches from the 240 to the flamethrower.
(4:10:35 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdman looks at the figure at the table.
(4:10:38 PM) E4D: Jason flattens himself against the wall of the bank, out of view, hopefully.
(4:10:46 PM) Tom90deg: "Oh god Kens…I am going to kick your ass."
(4:10:58 PM) E4D: <Lock it up, just get out of view."
(4:11:00 PM) Maddy: "Come join the party!" says a young woman. "Iain loves having more guests!"
(4:11:35 PM) PaulS_laptop: John frowns for a moment, then steps out of view and a different sort of smile cracks on his face
(4:11:46 PM) Dr_Kens: Kens freezes. "…did she say…Iain…" Kens twitches.
(4:11:58 PM) Ragazzo: "…someone you know?"
(4:12:01 PM) Tom90deg: "I think we should join, maybe get some information."
(4:12:10 PM) E4D: <What the *fuck* is he doing here?>
(4:12:30 PM) E4D: Disregard
(4:12:40 PM) Dr_Kens: Redact
(4:12:48 PM) Maddy: The figure turns to this woman and she shrinks a little. "I-I mean…our host."
(4:13:10 PM) Ragazzo: "So…"
(4:13:13 PM) Dr_Kens: Kens looks curious. "Iain? Hm, interesting name."
(4:13:17 PM) Maddy: "Our host loves more guests!" she smiles again.
(4:13:28 PM) Sabitsuki: "…A couple of grenades would get all of them at once." Tau whispers to no one in particular.
(4:13:34 PM) Tom90deg: "Idea guys…hold on…."
(4:13:43 PM) Doctor_Light: "They're nice," The birdman says.
(4:13:49 PM) E4D: <We're the fuck out of here.>
(4:14:02 PM) PaulS_laptop: "I'll hose them down, then we leave"
(4:14:08 PM) Ragazzo: "Yes, let's murder the almost certainly magical masked beings."
(4:14:09 PM) Maddy: She beckons. "You'll come to no harm here, so long as you do no harm to us."
(4:14:11 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe smiles and waves, "What? Why?"
(4:14:13 PM) E4D: <We're not hosing them down.>
(4:14:17 PM) Ragazzo: "That never goes wrong."
(4:14:29 PM) Dr_Kens: "They're civies, man. Let's give them the benefit of the doubt."
(4:14:31 PM) Tom90deg: "Ah! We would love to but there is a problem! A tradiation we have!"
(4:14:52 PM) Sabitsuki: "Ergh."
(4:14:57 PM) Maddy: "There are tables and chairs, pony rides and dancing bears! There'll even be a band."
(4:15:41 PM) Doctor_Light: "Dancing bears!" He looks at the others. They're all nuts if that doesn't convince them.
(4:15:47 PM) Tom90deg: "One of you needs to come over and accompany us! We would never intrude onto a party, we must be escorted, it is a odd tradition, but still! So Ma'am, if you will come here? Then we will discuss and possibly join in!"
(4:16:06 PM) E4D: <We can just *leave*, ya bunch of dumbasses. Tau not included.>
(4:16:27 PM) PaulS_laptop: <I'm all for leaving. I just want to roast a few first>
(4:16:53 PM) Tom90deg: "Why doyou want to kill everything? GO stomp on an ant pile if it'll take the edge off."
(4:17:07 PM) Maddy: Another guest chimes in. "After the fall there were no more countries, no currencies at all." The woman nods. "Of cour-" she stops, looks back at the figure and then at the team. "Is there a Mr. Williamson here?"
(4:17:21 PM) E4D: Jason back away, heading for the humvee. "Because killing everything makes thing-"
(4:17:27 PM) Ragazzo: "…?" Dusty glances at John.
(4:17:29 PM) Dr_Kens: Kens looks at John.
(4:18:11 PM) E4D: Jason loks at Dusty and Kens. <You guys are the worst poker players ever.>
(4:18:30 PM) Dr_Kens: "That's why I never bet when I played."
(4:18:37 PM) PaulS_laptop: "nope"
(4:18:45 PM) Ragazzo: "You're a damn fool to think that guy can't already tell."
(4:18:53 PM) Tom90deg: "What, simple? untill it turns out the people you're trying to kill are much bigger and stronger than you. Then you wish, oh, if only we talked first…"
(4:19:03 PM) E4D: <You're a damn fool to keep discussing and make the assumption.>
(4:19:14 PM) PaulS_laptop: "let's go"
(4:19:17 PM) Tom90deg: "Lets just leave…nice and quietly."
(4:19:20 PM) Maddy: The woman smiles. "Oh joy! You are the ones he was waiting for! I knew we'd come to the right place! Please, come."
(4:19:37 PM) Maddy: "Our gracious host implores you!"
(4:19:48 PM) Ragazzo: "I am all for leaving, by the way…"
(4:19:52 PM) Dr_Kens: "Hm, indeed…"
(4:19:57 PM) PaulS_laptop: John turns to leave
(4:20:02 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe backs up to the humvee
(4:20:03 PM) E4D: <ook, we ain't going nowhere, lady.>
(4:20:56 PM) Maddy: The figure gets up and starts walking over. Two voices speak. One hollow and the other…sounds sad, almost on the verge of tears.
(4:21:28 PM) Maddy: <Now Mr. Dodridge. You already rejected my deal, you're completely safe here, among my charges.>
(4:22:10 PM) Maddy: A man in a fine suit stands before them. He holds a mask in front of his face.
(4:22:10 PM) E4D: Jason hoists the .50, waiting for an excuse.
(4:22:32 PM) PaulS_laptop: "We leaving, or what?"
(4:22:40 PM) Maddy: <There is no need for violence. I have rules to follow. I will not tempt you again.>
(4:23:03 PM) Dr_Kens: Kens freezes at the voice. It's…familiar, from a time long ago…
(4:23:09 PM) Ragazzo: "I take it you know this fellow, Jason?" Dusty is backing up towards the humvee.
(4:23:11 PM) Dr_Kens: "That voice…"
(4:23:13 PM) Maddy: <But I must ask a favour. You know things I do not.>
(4:23:34 PM) Maddy: The second, more human voice sounds more and more hysterical, and pleeding.
(4:23:41 PM) Maddy: Afraid maybe.
(4:23:48 PM) Tom90deg: "I don't like that voice…We should leave Jason."
(4:23:54 PM) E4D: <We've met.>
(4:24:07 PM) Maddy: <Please. Hear us- me. Hear me out.>
(4:24:14 PM) Dr_Kens: "…I remember that voice…" Kens tilts his head at the figure.
(4:24:14 PM) Sabitsuki: "…Hm. You met a bender and he lived?"
(4:24:26 PM) E4D: Jason raises the muzzle, holding the weapon at an approximation of port arms.
(4:24:37 PM) PaulS_laptop: "A lot of them"
(4:24:55 PM) Maddy: <You know you can't kill me. I'm not truely alive as you.>
(4:25:21 PM) Maddy: <I need to ask you. Where is God.>
(4:25:43 PM) Sabitsuki: Tau frowns…and then quietly chuckles at the question.
(4:26:00 PM) Sabitsuki: "I'd like to know that too, please."
(4:26:16 PM) Tom90deg: "God?"
(4:26:34 PM) Maddy: The crowd has stopped their revelry, turning to watch silently.
(4:26:37 PM) PaulS_laptop: John's fingers are itchy on his weapon. He truly wants to roast Iain, but isn't, for some reason.
(4:26:44 PM) PaulS_laptop: "there is no God"
(4:27:01 PM) E4D: <I wouldn't say that. The Doctor seems pretty convinced there is.>
(4:27:14 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdman isn't sure what's going on here, but goes a bit closer and tries to look into the buildings.
(4:27:39 PM) Ragazzo: Dusty hesitantly follows birdman.
(4:27:52 PM) Maddy: <Oh but there is.> the mask smiles. <And we had a bet. I have won that bet and he has not come to give me my prize.> again, the human voice sounds pathetic.
(4:28:23 PM) Maddy: Dusty, Birdman Go to #TDCanada
(4:29:35 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe follows after Dusty and Birdman
(4:29:50 PM) Maddy: <I feel hate. Jason, you hate…343? Is that what you call God? He has picked up new names.>
(4:29:50 PM) PaulS_laptop: "What would that bet be"
(4:30:04 PM) Sabitsuki: "343 is dead."

(4:31:40 PM) Maddy: <No….n-no!> the hollow voice is starting to be drowned out by the human one. <He cannot die. He owes me!>
(4:32:54 PM) Sabitsuki: "He's just a SCP, kid. A strong bender with a delusion. Much like yourself."
(4:33:16 PM) E4D: <I'm not sure you get it. He's not God. He *calls* himself that, but… well, yeah.>
(4:33:25 PM) Maddy: <At the beginning of your world, we bet on who could gather the most souls. W-we- I have won!>
(4:34:10 PM) Maddy: <Look at them all.> he motions to the guests. <Not even all human. The world ended and I saved them.>
(4:34:26 PM) PaulS_laptop: "We killed him"
(4:34:32 PM) E4D: Jason looks around. <Everything looks like it's still *pretty* much in one piece.>
(4:34:32 PM) Dr_Kens: "Saved them? What did you promise them?"
(4:35:05 PM) Maddy: <Same thing I promised you, Kens.>
(4:36:11 PM) Dr_Kens: Kens pauses again…and stands up straight.
(4:36:13 PM) Maddy: <They threw away their survival kits, traded butterfly knives for aderaul.> The guests smile. <WHY ISN'T GOD COMING!>
(4:36:47 PM) PaulS_laptop: <Because he is dead. Very, very dead>
(4:36:51 PM) Sabitsuki: "…Spoiled child. You don't know anything about gods."
(4:37:04 PM) PaulS_laptop: John's smile is back. The bad one, not the friendly one.
(4:37:32 PM) Maddy: The mask flickers, like static and you can see the poor man's face for a moment.
(4:37:35 PM) Dr_Kens: "Better die here in peace than live in hell."
(4:37:43 PM) E4D: Jason looks over at Tau, and clears his throat, nodding back at the humvee
(4:38:19 PM) PaulS_laptop: "Don't make me shoot you again, Kens"
(4:38:20 PM) Maddy: "B-but…I can…no no no!" he grabs his head. One by one the guests wink out of existance.

(4:45:49 PM) E4D: <… Excuse the fuck out me?>

(4:58:04 PM) Sabitsuki: "Last rites. There is no future for the unaccepting. There is no breaking for the unbending. There is no life for the rusted." She spits on the body and turns.
(4:58:15 PM) Doctor_Light: Birdman looks around, straining his neck, then looks at the dead body.
