Feb 02 20:55:33 <Maddy> Elle is working on the LAV out od sheer bordem
Feb 02 20:55:49 <Echo> Evans is sleeping in his Hummer, forehead on the steering wheel.

Feb 02 20:56:26 <Ragazzo> Arnold smoking out by the front door.
Feb 02 20:57:22 <Dexanote> Myr's lost interest in Ahri and is currently taking a walk outside, circling the hospital grounds through the animal trails.
Feb 02 20:57:29 <Dexanote> or some thing
Feb 02 20:57:31 <Dexanote> she's outside
Feb 02 20:58:44 <Pemander> A loud, booming voice cuts through the air surrounding the hospital. "REPENT, SINNERS!"
Feb 02 20:58:51 <Pemander> Everyone can hear this.
Feb 02 20:58:57 <Ragazzo> "…."
Feb 02 20:59:12 <Ragazzo> Arnold taps out his cigarette looking around.
Feb 02 20:59:21 <Echo> Scott j
Feb 02 20:59:36 <Dexanote> Myr sighs, turning on her heel and hurrying back to the hospital. "Fuck."
Feb 02 20:59:38 <Echo> Scott jolts awake, looking around. "Urgh, huh, what?"
Feb 02 20:59:47 <Dexanote> «Anybody else hear that or am I going crazy again?»
Feb 02 21:00:00 <Ragazzo> «No, I heard it.»
Feb 02 21:00:15 <Ragazzo> He heads inside to fetch his rifle.
Feb 02 21:00:20 <Pemander> The voice again: "REPENT, SINNERS, FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NIGH!"
Feb 02 21:00:29 <Maddy> Elle tries to siit up and hits her head on the bottom of the LAV. "GAH! FUCK!"
Feb 02 21:00:32 <Echo> «No, yeah, I'm awake. It woke me up. I heard- that.»
Feb 02 21:00:37 <Pemander> It is most definitely male, but the source of it is unclear.
Feb 02 21:00:53 <Maddy> Sh gets ut. <Heard it too, fuck that's gonna leave a mark.»
Feb 02 21:00:55 <Ragazzo> Arnold heads to the roof.
Feb 02 21:01:08 <Ragazzo> Tries to locate the source of the voice form up there.
Feb 02 21:01:21 <Dexanote> «I'm going to the lobby. Meet me there.»
Feb 02 21:01:32 <Pemander> Roll perception, Arnold.
Feb 02 21:02:09 <Maddy> «On my way.» she heads in to the lobbyface

Feb 02 21:02:43 <Echo> Evans pops the driver's door open and stumbles out, racking his rifle and starting for the hospital.

Feb 02 21:03:21 <Echo> *y
Feb 02 21:03:32 <Pemander> You see a figure dressed in white strolling down one of the streets near the hospital.
Feb 02 21:03:54 <Pemander> He appears to be waving something in the air with one hand.
Feb 02 21:04:24 <Echo> «Got a dude outside on the street approaching the building. Distance is approximately…»
Feb 02 21:04:25 <Pemander> "THE TIME OF HERETICS HAS ENDED!"
Feb 02 21:04:29 <Echo> How far away is he?
Feb 02 21:04:47 <Ragazzo> Arnold looks around, and starts down to the lobby.
Feb 02 21:04:47 <Pemander> About…200 meters?
Feb 02 21:04:58 <Maddy> "Is it too muh to hope it's just a crazy priest?" she says as she wanders in to the lobby.
Feb 02 21:05:06 <Echo> Evans drops to the prone and sights in on the guy, ready to start squeezing off if something stupid happens.
Feb 02 21:05:19 <Maddy> "And hes jsut gonna try to sell us Jesus and then we can jsut nod our heads and send him off?"
Feb 02 21:05:20 <Echo> «200 meters. He's spoutin' some crazy shit about heretics and end times.»
Feb 02 21:05:36 <Maddy> «Little late about the end times, ain't it?»
Feb 02 21:05:58 <Pemander> The man notices Scott and turns toward him. He points with the object in his hand, which you can now clearly see is a book.
Feb 02 21:06:04 <Pemander> "You there."
Feb 02 21:06:07 <Dexanote> «He's probably crazy. Does he have any weapons?»
Feb 02 21:06:11 <Ragazzo> Arnold walks into the lobby.
Feb 02 21:06:23 <Pemander> His voice sounds as if he's right next t oyou.
Feb 02 21:06:33 <Echo> «Not that I can tell through the scope.»
Feb 02 21:06:35 <Dexanote> Myr makes it to the lobby, looking out the front doors.
Feb 02 21:07:06 <Echo> "… I'm gonna take the shot if no one objects. There's some weird shit going on here."
Feb 02 21:07:10 <Pemander> "I CAN SENSE YOU!"
Feb 02 21:07:11 <Echo> *«»
Feb 02 21:07:16 <Pemander> "YOU AND ALL YOUR COMPANIONS! HERETICS!"
Feb 02 21:07:47 <Ragazzo> Arnold ohlds his rifle at the ready, but keeps his finger off the trigger.
Feb 02 21:07:53 <Maddy> «Uh I dunno, if he;s really off, shooting him might make it worse. I\m heading out,»
Feb 02 21:08:07 <Maddy> Elle heads out to join le Scott.
Feb 02 21:08:10 <Pemander> "Come to me."
Feb 02 21:08:16 <Pemander> "Come, and be cleansed."

Feb 02 21:09:44 <Pemander> Scott won the roll. Describe your shot.
Feb 02 21:10:48 <Echo> The bullet rips out of the barrel, shattering the quiet… and whips right past the man' ear, barely an inch from his head.
Feb 02 21:11:16 <Pemander> The man starts laughing.
Feb 02 21:11:36 <Dexanote> «Get back. Scott get back.»
Feb 02 21:11:38 <Maddy> "Oh jeeze."
Feb 02 21:11:50 <Ragazzo> Arnold shoulders his rifle stepping back.
Feb 02 21:11:55 <Pemander> "If the sheep will not follow the shephard willingly…"
Feb 02 21:12:07 <Dexanote> Myr draws her weapons and steps out the door, aiming down the way. «Something's wrong.»
Feb 02 21:12:16 <Echo> Evans decides this is some sound-ass advice and pushes himself up, snatches his rifle, and hauls ass toward the others.
Feb 02 21:12:18 <Pemander> He reaches up with one arm and brings it down upon his stomach, piercing his own flesh.
Feb 02 21:12:24 <Maddy> Elle tugs on Scott's armour. "I already been to hell, Padre, I don't need your help knowed we don't wanaa go back."
Feb 02 21:12:37 <Maddy> "Oh fuck that." she heads off to the hospital too.
Feb 02 21:12:39 <Pemander> "Perhaps you need a little more…motivation…"
Feb 02 21:12:49 <Ragazzo> "Welp."
Feb 02 21:13:02 <Pemander> The figure in white pulls something out of his body. It squirms and writhes in his hands, begging to latch on to a host.
Feb 02 21:13:09 * Notify: E4D is online (SCP and Related Channels).
Feb 02 21:13:19 <Ragazzo> "…."
Feb 02 21:13:32 <Pemander> He starts walking toward the hospital.

Feb 02 21:15:04 <Pemander> The man reels from the shot.
Feb 02 21:15:26 <Pemander> Small creatures pour out of his open wound and skitter toward the hospital in perfect formation.
Feb 02 21:15:44 <Maddy> "OH FOR FUCK SAKE!"
Feb 02 21:15:56 <Pemander> "The Lord will have you…"
Feb 02 21:16:00 <Pemander> "Just like all the others."
Feb 02 21:16:15 <Ragazzo> "Time to go." Arnold shuts the doors if no one is outside.

Feb 02 21:17:47 <Pemander> The small insectoid creatures claw and snap at the door to the lobby, trying to break in.
Feb 02 21:18:05 <Pemander> The man is still recovering from the concussive shot. Everyone has an opportunity to move again, if they so wish.
Feb 02 21:18:36 <Ragazzo> "Which way out can we take to the vehicles?"
Feb 02 21:18:46 <Dexanote> "WHY DID YOU SHOOT HIM, SCOTT?!" Myr keeps the gun trained on the door.
Feb 02 21:19:01 <Echo> "I DIDN'T."
Feb 02 21:19:52 <Maddy> "Shot at, Still not a great idea seems like.
Feb 02 21:20:10 <Pemander> Tink, tink. You hear a tapping sound coming from the windows around the lobby.
Feb 02 21:20:14 <Echo> "I put one past the fucker's head and told him to turn his ass around."

Feb 02 21:24:29 <Pemander> There's a crash from somewhere else on the first floor of the hospital.
Feb 02 21:24:39 <Dexanote> Myr feels a jolt, recalling vividly the djinn's mask. She shakes her head. "Come on. We can get to the garage through the back."
Feb 02 21:24:53 <Maddy> "This ha escalated FAR too quikly for my liking!"

Feb 02 21:25:22 <Echo> Evans is right behind Myrtle.
Feb 02 21:26:14 <Dexanote> Myr rushes down the hall and turns the corner to the emergency exits; Pem can tell us whether they lead directly to the garage, or outside first.
Feb 02 21:26:19 <Ragazzo> Arnold hauls his flat ass along.
Feb 02 21:26:32 <Maddy> Elle goes with everyone else, covering the rear. I assume Atropa is just whith the other inactive PCs doing stuff
Feb 02 21:26:49 <Pemander> That falls under Maddy's jurisdiction, though I would assume there are exits that go directly to the garage.

Feb 02 21:27:07 <Pemander> Then there are.

Feb 02 21:29:03 <Ragazzo> Arnold hurries along while trying to evade the bugs.
Feb 02 21:29:38 <Echo> Fuck that. He can't shoot them all, and just tries to stay close to Myrtle, breaking off at the last minute to run for his SUV.
Feb 02 21:29:46 <Pemander> They lunge at you, trying to latch on with the circular mouths on their undersides!

Feb 02 21:31:50 <Pemander> The bugs regroup and head up one of the walls in a single-file line.
Feb 02 21:31:55 <Echo> Evans clambers BACK into the Hummer he'd abandoned a few minutes prior and locks the doors.
Feb 02 21:32:19 <Maddy> Elle rushes for the LAV, gunner or driver, whatever Myr doesnt take first.
Feb 02 21:32:48 <Ragazzo> Arnold grabs a driver's seat if needed, if not he sits his ass down.

Feb 02 21:35:15 <Pemander> "Heretics. You will not escape. You will /never/ escape." The sound of busting concrete echoes throughout the garage as the man in white falls through the roof and lands a few yards in front of the LAV.
Feb 02 21:35:37 <Pemander> He looks furious. "Don't you see? God is here! God is /here/!"
Feb 02 21:36:06 <Pemander> Does Elle make any attempt to avoid him?
