The Lurking Fear: Part One

Aug 12 18:50:15 <Echo> Scott pops the cargo hatch and crawls up into the back, shutting it behind him and opening the window. "I'm set when y'all are."
Aug 12 18:50:47 <Ragazzo> Sleeps is coiled up in whichever vehicle can hold him.
Aug 12 18:51:00 <Dexanote> They're all going in the truck.
Aug 12 18:51:07 <Echo> He can ride in the back with Scott.
Aug 12 18:51:24 <Ragazzo> Sleeps does this.
Aug 12 18:51:48 <Ragazzo> He probably dozes a bit after finding a good way to fit.
Aug 12 18:52:17 <Maddy> wait pemderp isnt in here
Aug 12 18:52:18 * Pemander (~ten.tsacmoc.im.1dsh.46BAEE6E-CRInys|kcirtaP#ten.tsacmoc.im.1dsh.46BAEE6E-CRInys|kcirtaP) has joined #afteractionmission
Aug 12 18:52:22 <Maddy> there he is
Aug 12 18:54:22 <Maddy> Ok so you're driving, but it doesn't look like there's enough space to drive into the woods. You'll hav to continue n foot.
Aug 12 18:55:16 <Dexanote> Myrtle stops the truck on the edge of the woods, turning it so as to face the way they came. She hops out, stretching. "We ready guys?"
Aug 12 18:55:16 <Echo> Scott pops the rear hatch as they near the woodline past the cul-de-sac and hops out, waiting for Sleeps before he closes it.
Aug 12 18:56:17 <Echo> The cop slings his assault rifle and pulls the bolt-action out past the snakeguy. "We ain't got all day, Sleeps." He pokes him with the butt of the rifle.
Aug 12 18:56:22 <Echo> "We're here, wake up."
Aug 12 18:59:55 <Ragazzo> Sleeps wakes up.
Aug 12 19:00:04 <Ragazzo> "Muh…ok."
Aug 12 19:00:08 <Ragazzo> He snakes out.
Aug 12 19:00:32 <Echo> Scott slams the hatch shut behind him and locks the window. "You comin' with, or you gonna hang out here?"
Aug 12 19:01:15 <Dexanote> Myrtle looks out at the woodline, cracking her neck. "It's a nice day, at least. Come on."
Aug 12 19:01:22 <Ragazzo> "I'm coming with
Aug 12 19:01:24 <Ragazzo> ."
Aug 12 19:01:34 <Dexanote> "Anybody see a path? The guy said they all went the same way."
Aug 12 19:01:51 <Maddy> Perception or survival.
Aug 12 19:01:55 <Pemander> Arianna hops out of the SUV.
Aug 12 19:02:12 <Pemander> "There's probably something."
Aug 12 19:02:17 <Echo> "I dunno. I was about to ask you the same thing. Guess we could just start walking."

Aug 12 19:02:46 <Maddy> Sleeps is too sleepy to see it.
Aug 12 19:02:55 <Echo> Look recently used?
Aug 12 19:03:18 <Echo> Scott starts off away from the SUV, eyes aimed at the ground by the edge of the trees.
Aug 12 19:03:25 <Maddy> Maybe in the last month, but with the dry weather, who's to say.
Aug 12 19:03:37 <Echo> "Think we might have it here. Right about where he said."
Aug 12 19:04:04 <Ragazzo> Sleeps trails after Scott.
Aug 12 19:04:32 <Echo> He twists his hat backwards and starts into the trees as he slings his rifle.
Aug 12 19:05:04 <Echo> "You think there's any animals out here? Like bear and shit? Hasn't exactly been a lot of people to keep something scared."
Aug 12 19:05:28 <Ragazzo> "Maybe."
Aug 12 19:05:38 <Ragazzo> "I knew a werebear once."
Aug 12 19:05:47 <Echo> "… It's amazing ho- what?"
Aug 12 19:06:05 <Maddy> There are regular forest noises.
Aug 12 19:06:17 <Echo> Scott keeps walking, eyes mostly down to make sure he doesn't trip over shit, and still looking for any signs of recent travel.
Aug 12 19:06:24 <Dexanote> She draws a gun, checking its ammunition. "Wolves have probably moved this far south by now. Deer too."
Aug 12 19:06:31 <Pemander> Arianna follows after the others.
Aug 12 19:06:36 <Pemander> "Don't forget about the hyenas."
Aug 12 19:06:37 <Ragazzo> "A werebear. She was good at charades."
Aug 12 19:06:41 <Pemander> "We didn't kill all of them."
Aug 12 19:07:00 <Dexanote> "Not /yet/."
Aug 12 19:07:04 <Echo> "Wolves aren't that bad. They're scared as shit of people. And fuck, I forgot about the zoo animals."
Aug 12 19:07:24 <Echo> He stops. "Are hyenas scared of people? Like, zoo hyenas?"
Aug 12 19:07:45 <Echo> "Don't they just eat dead animals and shit?"
Aug 12 19:08:07 <Dexanote> "I just don't trust any animals that can't talk."
Aug 12 19:08:24 <Pemander> "They were really, really hungry when we last ran into them."
Aug 12 19:08:40 <Pemander> "Normally they'd stay away from people, I guess? But when you're starving it doesn't matter that much."
Aug 12 19:09:19 <Echo> He starts moving ahead again, now chancing a glance around him every few steps. "Fuck."
Aug 12 19:09:25 <Dexanote> She pauses. "Yeah?"
Aug 12 19:09:40 <Echo> "No, just saying, 'fuck, hyenas."
Aug 12 19:09:49 <Ragazzo> Sleeps is peering about and rubbing the sleep from his eyes as they go.
Aug 12 19:10:13 <Echo> He pulls the rifle back into his hands. "I don't want to be dealing with a bunch of starving-ass dogs."
Aug 12 19:10:30 <Maddy> Eventualy they find a small cleading with a very small shack, the door slightly ajar.
Aug 12 19:10:58 <Ragazzo> Sleeps snakes around the shack.
Aug 12 19:11:06 <Ragazzo> "I'll wait outside."
Aug 12 19:11:20 <Echo> "Huh. There we go. Guess somebody wanted a fishing cabin close to the river. Must have cost a damn dime back in the day to get it outta the city's hands."
Aug 12 19:11:49 <Maddy> It's basically an oversized garden shed. Soft music seems to be playing from inside.
Aug 12 19:11:51 <Echo> Scott approaches the front door of the place, then decides Sleeps has the idea and walks around, checking for windows.
Aug 12 19:12:10 <Maddy> The windows are filthy, you can't see inside.
Aug 12 19:12:21 <Dexanote> Myrtle quietly slips into a shrouded walk, staying between Sleeps and Arianna.
Aug 12 19:13:18 <Echo> He frowns, then finishes his circuit back to the front, keeping away from the door. He notices the sudden lack of Myrtle, and takes a few more steps back. He takes a knee, pointing his rifle vaguely at the door.
Aug 12 19:13:40 <Echo> "I got it if someone wants to knock."
Aug 12 19:13:59 <Dexanote> Shall I roll or just go?
Aug 12 19:14:12 <Ragazzo> Sleeps thumps the shack with his tail.
Aug 12 19:14:14 <Dexanote> For stealth?
Aug 12 19:14:24 <Ragazzo> 4df+3 thump
Aug 12 19:14:25 <CROM> Ragazzo: thump: 5 (4df+3=+, +, -, +)
Aug 12 19:14:50 <Maddy> The shack creaks. It's not in gread repair.
Aug 12 19:15:05 <Maddy> you can roll stealth if you want
Aug 12 19:15:06 <Echo> "…"
Aug 12 19:15:11 <Pemander> "…Sleeps."
Aug 12 19:15:13 <Pemander> Ariana stares at him.
Aug 12 19:15:24 <Ragazzo> "…What?" He yawns.
Aug 12 19:15:30 <Dexanote> 4df+4 Myr steps back.
Aug 12 19:15:30 <CROM> Dexanote: Myr steps back.: 4 (4df+4=+, 0, -, 0)
Aug 12 19:15:38 <Ragazzo> "You said knock..
Aug 12 19:15:42 <Ragazzo> ."
Aug 12 19:16:02 <Dexanote> She taps Sleeps' shoulder, pulling him back, and pushes the door open. The door swings open very quickly.
Aug 12 19:16:30 <Ragazzo> Sleeps 'knocked' from about seven feet away
Aug 12 19:17:17 <Maddy> With the door open you can hear the music, being played on an old victrola, much clearer.

Aug 12 19:17:53 <Dexanote> Myr sloooowly backs up. Nope. Nope. Noperoni.
Aug 12 19:18:08 <Ragazzo> Sleeps peers around myrtle.
Aug 12 19:18:20 <Echo> "Okay, what the fuck is that shit?"
Aug 12 19:18:55 <Maddy> The shack is a single room. A bare bones bed, the gramaphone on a table, with a single chair, and a small fireplace.
Aug 12 19:19:04 <Echo> Scott takes to his feet, rifle up now. He moves up toward the door now, holding the bolt-action out toward Myrtle as he pulls his assault rifle from his back.
Aug 12 19:19:40 <Ragazzo> "I don't see anyone in there…" Sleeps is outside still.
Aug 12 19:19:42 <Maddy> Everything is covered in a layer of dust.
Aug 12 19:19:43 <Dexanote> Myr shifts, becoming more noticeable again as she picks up the heavy rifle. "… okay."
Aug 12 19:20:55 <Echo> He peeks into the shack, rifle pieing off the room as he makes entry, freezing a few moments later. "There's… what, this all there is?"

Aug 12 19:24:58 <Maddy> Sleeps and Myr notice everything is covered in dust, but for right in front of the fireplace grate.
Aug 12 19:25:23 <Echo> "… who had the music running."
Aug 12 19:26:03 <Ragazzo> "Weeeiird."
Aug 12 19:26:12 <Ragazzo> "Look at the fireplace."
Aug 12 19:26:29 <Echo> "What about it?"
Aug 12 19:26:42 <Ragazzo> "The dust isn't there."
Aug 12 19:26:47 <Dexanote> Myr slowly slips into the shack. "Looks like it's been disturbed."
Aug 12 19:26:54 <Dexanote> "The fireplace isn't very dusty."
Aug 12 19:27:15 <Echo> Scott steps in for a closer look. "Someone keep an eye out on the woods. Someone had that music playing. The couldn't have left much before we got here."
Aug 12 19:27:17 <Pemander> "This is the part where someone goes up to the fireplace…"
Aug 12 19:27:23 <Pemander> "And then it sucks them in."
Aug 12 19:27:38 <Dexanote> "Rock Paper Scissors?" She glances at Arianna.
Aug 12 19:27:55 <Ragazzo> Sleeps reaches out with his tail.

Aug 12 19:28:52 <Ragazzo> Sleeps brings it back to him.
Aug 12 19:28:59 <Ragazzo> Let's it fall.
Aug 12 19:29:37 <Maddy> Undeneath, instead of a small space for debris, there's a fairly wide tunnel down at an angle.
Aug 12 19:30:12 <Echo> "… Fucking. Great."
Aug 12 19:30:34 <Pemander> "Darn."
Aug 12 19:30:51 <Ragazzo> "This is going to be one of those days."

Aug 12 19:32:19 <Ragazzo> "Could we roll a grenade down it and leave?"

Aug 12 19:32:48 <Pemander> "Not fair to back out as soon as shit gets mildly creepy."
Aug 12 19:32:50 <Echo> "Overpressure'd be dangerous if it'd be premature."
Aug 12 19:33:11 <Ragazzo> "But there's going to be monsters or something."
Aug 12 19:33:13 <Dexanote> She makes a fist, looking down at the tunnel. "Ari?"
Aug 12 19:34:20 <Echo> "Monsters ain't real. Fuck it." Scott slings his rifle across the front of his chest, barrel toward his feet, and edges into the fireplace, scooting on his butt.

Aug 12 19:35:38 <Dexanote> "Damn it."
Aug 12 19:35:48 <Ragazzo> Sleeps waits, and will follow people down.
Aug 12 19:36:03 <Echo> "You want first then? I mean, wouldn't wanna steal it from you."
Aug 12 19:36:06 <Dexanote> She slumps, stepping to the tunnel and glancing down. How deep does it look?"
Aug 12 19:36:16 * Tox|Laptop (teerts.pmuj.12|ytrap#teerts.pmuj.12|ytrap) has joined #afteractionmission
Aug 12 19:36:16 <Dexanote> "I'll do it. I'm probably safest anyway."
Aug 12 19:36:33 <Maddy> With the angle, it's hard to see far. There doesnt seem to be light down there.
Aug 12 19:37:02 <Echo> Scott eases back away, scooting back. He takes his rifle back from Myrtle. "If there's anything down there, uh… yell for help."
Aug 12 19:37:13 <Echo> "I'll toss a grenade and get the rest of us out."
Aug 12 19:37:46 <Ragazzo> Sleeps blinks. "I'd probably go down fastest…"
Aug 12 19:37:51 <Dexanote> "…. Sure ." She shivers a bit, crouching and starting down. "Let me at least say what I see first."
Aug 12 19:38:22 <Pemander> Arianna puts a hand on Scott's chest and looks at him. "I'll go second."
Aug 12 19:38:38 <Pemander> Not in a tender way, in a 'yo hold up' way.
Aug 12 19:38:49 <Echo> "You got it."
Aug 12 19:39:53 <Maddy> As Myrtle decends, it gets darker and wetter.
Aug 12 19:40:05 <Ragazzo> Sleeps pulls some jerky out of his shirt pocket. He has a shirt on.
Aug 12 19:40:05 <Dexanote> Myr continues down the tunnel.What's it constructed with? Bricks? Dirt? Rocks? Skulls? Coral?
Aug 12 19:40:13 <Ragazzo> He swallows it whole.
Aug 12 19:40:32 <Maddy> It's bored right from the rock the shack was apparently built on.
Aug 12 19:40:44 <Echo> Scott notices this! "Shit, you got jerky?"
Aug 12 19:41:00 <Ragazzo> Sleeps offers a second piece.
Aug 12 19:41:08 <Ragazzo> "Mnfnm."
Aug 12 19:41:10 <Echo> "Dude, gimme some jer- sweet,"
Aug 12 19:41:20 <Maddy> The smell that comes up is…odd. Not bad just not one you can place.
Aug 12 19:41:23 <Pemander> Arianna has followed after Myrtle.
Aug 12 19:41:45 <Maddy> Ari notices the same thing.
Aug 12 19:42:05 <Ragazzo> Sleeps follows after or before Scott.
Aug 12 19:42:11 <Dexanote> is it fish
Aug 12 19:42:11 <Echo> Scott devours the jerky and passes the bolt-action rifle off to Sleeps. "Hang onto that while I go down?"
Aug 12 19:42:23 <Ragazzo> "Ok."
Aug 12 19:42:25 <Dexanote> "… You smell that?" she hisses back at Arianna.3
Aug 12 19:42:32 <Ragazzo> He holds it.
Aug 12 19:42:35 <Pemander> "Yeah. Why are you hissing? Weirdo."
Aug 12 19:42:47 <Pemander> "You aren't a snake. The snake's back behind us."
Aug 12 19:42:54 <Echo> Scott assumes the position and starts scooting, shining a light down past Myrtle and Arianna. "Shit, is this fucking rock?"
Aug 12 19:42:59 <Dexanote> "Shut up its a whisper."
Aug 12 19:43:14 <Pemander> "Not the same thing. And yeah, Scott, it looks like it's rock."

Aug 12 19:45:15 <Echo> "I'm wounded. And if it's moonshine, Kyle's gonna be happy."

Aug 12 19:46:53 <Dexanote> Myr slips out, standing up with a hand above her. Does she feel a ceiling?"

Aug 12 19:51:25 <Echo> Scott scoots the last bit down and clicks on the bright-ass tactical light mounted on his rifle as he shoves the little handheld back into a pocket.
Aug 12 19:51:40 <Maddy> Well then.
Aug 12 19:52:10 <Ragazzo> Sleeps snakes out.
Aug 12 19:52:22 <Maddy> Iluminated suddenly are three hunched figures, frozen for a moment by the sudden light.
Aug 12 19:53:03 <Dexanote> "…" Myr immediately hands the boltaction to Arianna and pulls out her pistols.
Aug 12 19:53:11 <Echo> "…" His rifle moves to the one in the center. What. Is. He. Looking. At.
Aug 12 19:53:23 <Ragazzo> Sleeps tenses!
Aug 12 19:53:59 <Maddy> They're poised having been sneaking up on Myrtle and Ari. Human looking, but dischevled and dirty. Two men and a woman with scraggly hair and long dirty fingernails.
Aug 12 19:54:06 <Pemander> Arianna immediately hands the boltaction to Scott and pulls out her knives.
Aug 12 19:54:08 <Maddy> And each with one blue eye, and one brown eye.

Aug 12 20:49:29 <Pemander> It hits the top handle-first, spins, and falls back down.
Aug 12 20:49:31 <Dexanote> Myr reloads.
Aug 12 20:49:45 <Maddy> Please tell me it hits the thing.
Aug 12 20:49:48 <Maddy> Cause that would be awesome
Aug 12 20:50:07 <Pemander> It lands right in the thing's 'head'.
Aug 12 20:50:21 <Pemander> That is to say, its upper torso area.
Aug 12 20:50:33 <Maddy> Its eyes fade away and the body falls with a flop
Aug 12 20:50:35 <Echo> Scott aims down the tunnel the other one ran down, hands shaking. He's leaking pretty well from his leg. He sends a mag out down the tunnel, dropping the full 30 rounds after the spindly thing.
Aug 12 20:50:49 <Pemander> Arianna claps her hands over her ears.
Aug 12 20:51:20 <Dexanote> Myr shivers. "Warning, Scoot."
Aug 12 20:51:22 <Pemander> "Goddammit Scott I can /feel/ myself developing tinnitus."

Aug 12 20:52:02 <Echo> Scott reloads again, panting a little. "Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck." He glances over at Myrtle and Ari. "Y'all in one piece? Sleeps?"
Aug 12 20:52:35 <Dexanote> "I'm alright. You?"
Aug 12 20:52:39 <Pemander> "We're fine, I think." She looks herself over. "How's the leg?"
Aug 12 20:52:48 <Ragazzo> "I'm ok…"
Aug 12 20:52:53 <Echo> "Uhhh, shit, I dunno. Fuck."
Aug 12 20:53:51 <Echo> He pushes himself up to his feet, rifle still aimed down the tunnel.
Aug 12 20:54:28 <Maddy> All there is to hear now is the driping from before.
Aug 12 20:54:40 <Pemander> Arianna gathers up all her knives and wipes them down.
Aug 12 20:54:42 <Echo> He listens quiet for a few moments. "Think I got it? That last one?
Aug 12 20:54:43 <Echo> "
Aug 12 20:54:48 <Dexanote> "Probably… more down there.".
Aug 12 20:54:54 <Pemander> She nods to Myrtle.
Aug 12 20:55:34 <Echo> He takes a few steps closer to it, keeping the powerful taclight down the hole. Anything?
Aug 12 20:56:22 <Echo> How far does it go? Does it angle off anywhere? Can he tell?
Aug 12 20:56:26 <Dexanote> Myr stays right behind Scoot. "Careful."
Aug 12 20:57:15 <Maddy> it goes straigh forward, is tall enough to stand in, and wide enough to walk two by two. Not far forwad theres some water pooled on the floor. It's about 2m across, wall to wall.
Aug 12 20:57:35 <Maddy> The walls of the room and the tunnel have the same pick axe looking carving in them.
Aug 12 20:57:44 <Pemander> Arianna tails the other two.
Aug 12 20:57:56 <Pemander> "Hey. Guys."
Aug 12 20:58:04 <Pemander> She runs a hand along one of the walls.
Aug 12 20:58:11 <Echo> "I think I know how this shit got dug out." He removes an empty magazine from his vest and tosses it into the water.
Aug 12 20:58:19 <Pemander> Is it possible that the pick-axe-looking carvings were actually made by some sort of…scythe?
Aug 12 20:58:25 <Maddy> MAYBE!
Aug 12 20:58:27 <Maddy> yes
Aug 12 20:58:52 <Pemander> "So listen. Theory time."
Aug 12 20:59:13 <Ragazzo> "???"
Aug 12 20:59:32 <Pemander> "Weird parasite, gradually takes over the host's brain functions and grows inside them."
Aug 12 20:59:38 <Maddy> The empty mag splooshes in.
Aug 12 20:59:39 <Echo> How deep does the mag go? It a shallow splash or a deep splash?
Aug 12 20:59:41 <Pemander> "Gives them a compulsion to find a deep, dark area where it can thrive."
Aug 12 21:00:04 <Pemander> "Eventually just completely infests the body and turns them into…that."
Aug 12 21:00:04 <Dexanote> "… Ah."
Aug 12 21:00:05 <Maddy> i looks like the pool, at its deepest, its about waist deep.
Aug 12 21:00:19 <Pemander> "I've seen it a million times."
Aug 12 21:00:33 <Echo> "Which one of you has the best throwing arm?"
Aug 12 21:00:38 <Pemander> Ari raises her hand.
Aug 12 21:00:40 <Maddy> It's kinda murky, but looks kinda empty.
Aug 12 21:00:48 <Maddy> I mean, other than the mag.
Aug 12 21:00:57 <Ragazzo> Sleeps rubs his teeth. "Blech."
Aug 12 21:01:55 <Ragazzo> He's by Scott.
Aug 12 21:02:17 <Echo> The left leg of Scott's pants is turning red. He pulls a pair of frag grenades off his vest and hands them to Ari.
Aug 12 21:02:24 <Echo> How far down the tunnel is the water?
Aug 12 21:02:37 <Maddy> 2m
Aug 12 21:02:37 <Pemander> "Do these things still detonate underwater?" She grabs the grenades.
Aug 12 21:02:43 <Dexanote> "Scoot maybe we should come back tomorrow when you're not bleeding."
Aug 12 21:03:21 <Echo> "Yeah, just get back around the edge, and toss one in the water, and sling one as far down the tunnel as you can. Then we're the fuck out of here."
Aug 12 21:04:02 <Pemander> "We're in a cave. Might collapse or something."
Aug 12 21:04:17 <Pemander> "Before I do it, you guys crawl out."
Aug 12 21:04:45 <Dexanote> "… You sure?"
Aug 12 21:05:01 <Ragazzo> "I can probably get out fastest…"
Aug 12 21:05:09 <Ragazzo> "I'm used to crawling."
Aug 12 21:05:21 <Pemander> "You almost slipped back there, Sleeps. Don't think I didn't notice."
Aug 12 21:05:32 <Pemander> "Besides, my safety's practically guaranteed."
Aug 12 21:06:28 <Echo> "Nah, it's fine. It'll just be loud. Just get back around the corners of this tunnel. Hell, yeah, though, guess we outghta."
Aug 12 21:06:40 <Echo> Scott starts limping back toward the tunnel they entered from.
Aug 12 21:06:53 <Ragazzo> "Fiine."
Aug 12 21:06:58 <Pemander> "Wait, one more thing."
Aug 12 21:06:58 <Ragazzo> He snakes off.
Aug 12 21:07:02 <Ragazzo> Pause.
Aug 12 21:07:04 <Pemander> "Any of you have some…twine, or something like that?"
Aug 12 21:07:09 <Pemander> "Maybe some thick string?"
Aug 12 21:07:11 <Ragazzo> "Uhh."
Aug 12 21:07:15 <Echo> "Got 550 cord."
Aug 12 21:07:32 <Pemander> "That works."
Aug 12 21:07:38 <Echo> "You can tow a truck with it if you keep doubling it, what's up?"
Aug 12 21:07:50 <Echo> He sits on the exit's brim, wincing a little.
Aug 12 21:07:54 <Dexanote> Myr crouches, picking up a small rock and tossing it into the water.
Aug 12 21:07:59 <Pemander> "Gonna try a neat little trick."
Aug 12 21:08:16 <Maddy> Sploosh!
Aug 12 21:08:19 <Maddy> Oh hey
Aug 12 21:08:21 <Pemander> "Gimme the cord."
Aug 12 21:08:31 <Maddy> theres someking kinda shiny in the water
Aug 12 21:08:45 <Maddy> Arms length if you stood on the edge.
Aug 12 21:08:58 <Dexanote> 4df+3 Perception: Myr shines her light into the water.

Aug 12 21:09:12 <Echo> He starts unraveling a length of it from a pouch on his vest. "How much you need?"
Aug 12 21:09:13 <Maddy> Looks like a necklace with a ring on it.
Aug 12 21:09:34 <Pemander> "Enough to get from…here to where the water starts."
Aug 12 21:09:37 <Pemander> "Twice."
Aug 12 21:09:49 <Dexanote> "Wait wait there's a trinket in there."
Aug 12 21:10:04 <Pemander> Arianna turns. "…a trinket?"
Aug 12 21:10:12 <Maddy> A shiney trinket!
Aug 12 21:10:46 <Ragazzo> "Uhh."
Aug 12 21:11:11 <Dexanote> Myr carefully edges towards the water. "… Anybody have a stick?"
Aug 12 21:11:30 <Ragazzo> "Bet you it's a monster."
Aug 12 21:12:11 <Echo> Scott just hands her the wad of 550 cord, about 2 meters worth.
Aug 12 21:13:07 <Dexanote> She takes the cord and pulls out a hairpin, bending it a bit and slitting it through the end of the cord. She casts the line and guides it to the necklace, trying to hook the ring on the pin.
Aug 12 21:13:31 <Maddy> You get it, cause I'm too lay to make you roll for that
Aug 12 21:13:39 <Pemander> "Hey, I was gonna use that!"
Aug 12 21:14:51 <Echo> Scott wobbles a little from where he's sitting.
Aug 12 21:15:00 <Dexanote> "One second." She takes the ring, tossing the line to Arianna. Does it look tarnished or anything?
Aug 12 21:15:02 <Dexanote> Actually
Aug 12 21:15:11 <Maddy> A little, but not badly.
Aug 12 21:15:12 <Pemander> Arianna looks over at him worriedly. "Scott, you feeling dizzy?"
Aug 12 21:15:30 <Dexanote> "Scott give me a sec." She pockets the ring wuick and tears a strip of cloth from the bottom of her shirt, kneeling beside him. "Sleeps prop him up."
Aug 12 21:16:29 <Ragazzo> Sleeps does so.
Aug 12 21:16:39 <Echo> "Nah, I'm good. Just… a little woozy."

Aug 12 21:20:01 <Dexanote> "I dunno if it'd be the best idea to just blow the shit up…" She sighs, as Scott squirms out of her grasp. "Like we don't know if there are other tunnels right?"
Aug 12 21:20:32 <Pemander> "What else can we do? Wade right on in there like we've got a death wish?"
Aug 12 21:20:52 <Dexanote> Myr looks at Arianna.
Aug 12 21:20:59 <Pemander> "Oh, shut up."
Aug 12 21:20:59 <Ragazzo> "We should take Scott to somewhere he can rest…"
Aug 12 21:21:10 <Dexanote> "I didn't say a word."
Aug 12 21:21:26 <Echo> "Come back?"
Aug 12 21:21:28 <Pemander> "Yeah, yeah." She crosses her arms and blows up a strand of hair.
Aug 12 21:21:29 <Dexanote> "Scott you're bleeding a lot here."
Aug 12 21:21:38 <Echo> "Shit, do we *want* to come back?"
Aug 12 21:21:47 <Echo> "Yeah, I'm good."
Aug 12 21:21:53 <Dexanote> "we can't really just fuck this up for the kids."
Aug 12 21:21:59 <Maddy> FOR THE KEEDS!
Aug 12 21:22:01 <Pemander> Ari sighs.
Aug 12 21:22:02 <Dexanote> "We can't just pack them all up and run."
Aug 12 21:22:19 <Pemander> "Being the good guys is fucking awful."
Aug 12 21:22:21 <Echo> "Goddamn, what the fuck are those things… I mean, did you get a good look at them?"
Aug 12 21:22:27 <Dexanote> "And I dunno about you but I'd like that deadbeat angel to be here and Scott to not be limping around like a cripple."
Aug 12 21:22:34 <Echo> "Just fucking came right out of those people."
Aug 12 21:22:41 <Dexanote> "Yeah I got a good look at them, i'll be dreaming about them for the next month."
Aug 12 21:22:43 <Pemander> She looks to Scott. "They looked like little bug things, sort of."
Aug 12 21:22:48 <Pemander> "Except made of person."
Aug 12 21:22:49 <Echo> "Shit, you know what, let's fucking talk up top."
Aug 12 21:23:09 <Dexanote> 4df+3 Myr takes a quick look around, shining her light into the blackness.

Aug 12 21:23:20 <Echo> He rolls onto his stomach and starts crawling up the tunnel, a good deal slower this time.
Aug 12 21:23:24 <Dexanote> She drops the light. It clatters into the water.
Aug 12 21:23:31 <Dexanote> "… Fuck."
Aug 12 21:23:32 <Pemander> "…butterfingers."
Aug 12 21:23:48 <Ragazzo> Sleeps goes to make sure Scott is ok.
Aug 12 21:25:59 <Dexanote> "We can't just leave shit here or they'll come for the kids one night." She sighs, peering into the dark. "… You think we should come back? Or just push through…?"
Aug 12 21:26:08 <Echo> Maddy: Does he make it up all right?
Aug 12 21:26:12 <Maddy> yeah hes fine
Aug 12 21:26:38 <Echo> «I say we leave for now. Lock the grate up if we can. Come back and bring some heat and thunder with us."
Aug 12 21:26:38 <Echo> »
Aug 12 21:27:05 <Dexanote> «We'll do that.»
Aug 12 21:27:11 <Dexanote> "Ari, you or me first?"
Aug 12 21:27:23 <Pemander> "You first."
Aug 12 21:27:43 <Pemander> "I want to try one last thing."
Aug 12 21:27:56 <Pemander> Arianna looks around for a small rock or something.
Aug 12 21:28:33 <Maddy> Theres some rocks. Take yoru pick.
Aug 12 21:29:13 <Pemander> She grabs one that fits snugly in her palm and hefts it down the tunnel, listening to see if it hits a wall.
Aug 12 21:29:16 <Pemander> 4df+4 THROW!
Aug 12 21:29:16 <CROM> Pemander: THROW!: 1 (4df+4=-, -, 0, -)

Aug 12 21:29:39 <Echo> …
Aug 12 21:30:01 <Maddy> SPLOOSH
Aug 12 21:30:05 <Maddy> good job
Aug 12 21:30:07 <Pemander> She sighs.
Aug 12 21:30:15 <Pemander> "Damn it."
Aug 12 21:30:22 <Maddy> There are more rocks, you can take 20 if you want
Aug 12 21:30:33 <Pemander> YOU KNOW WHAT JUST FORGET IT MADDY
Aug 12 21:30:37 <Maddy> Ok
Aug 12 21:30:39 <Pemander> Ari crawls out after Myrtle.
Aug 12 21:30:51 <Dexanote> Myr slips up the tunnel.
Aug 12 21:31:35 <Pemander> "Listen, so…"
Aug 12 21:31:37 <Maddy> Yay climbing.
Aug 12 21:31:59 <Pemander> Once they're out, she stands up and cracks her back. "We need Scott patched up, but also, we pissed these things off probably. Assuming there's more than that last one."
Aug 12 21:32:14 <Dexanote> "Right."
Aug 12 21:32:57 <Pemander> "I want some assurance that they're not going to come out at night and go kill the old guy back at the house - or worse - head to the mall."
Aug 12 21:33:18 <Dexanote> "You think we should block the tunnel?"
Aug 12 21:33:26 <Pemander> Arianna nods.
Aug 12 21:33:42 <Maddy> The gramophone is still playing that creepy ass song.
Aug 12 21:33:45 <Pemander> "But they can dig pretty crazy as well. So we need something else."
Aug 12 21:33:50 <Maddy> Its dark as hell now.
Aug 12 21:34:02 <Dexanote> She looks around the shack. "We could knock over the fireplace with the truck and get out."
Aug 12 21:34:08 <Dexanote> "Can I see one of your knives?".
Aug 12 21:34:09 <Pemander> "Anybody good with, like, snares? Traps? That sort of thing?"
Aug 12 21:34:13 <Echo> "Truck's a mile away."
Aug 12 21:34:19 <Pemander> "Yeah, sure." She takes one out of her pack and holds it out to Myrtle.
Aug 12 21:34:31 <Echo> "Fuck."
Aug 12 21:34:45 <Echo> Scott peeks outside.
Aug 12 21:34:51 <Echo> "Fuckfuckfuckfuckfuck."
Aug 12 21:35:00 <Echo> "Guys."
Aug 12 21:35:08 <Maddy> There's a faint glow some distance in the woods. Likely will'o'the whisps.
Aug 12 21:35:08 <Echo> "The truck. Is a mile away."
Aug 12 21:35:09 <Pemander> "What's up?" Ari looks at hmi.
Aug 12 21:35:18 <Echo> "You think they're in the woods?"
Aug 12 21:36:27 <Pemander> "Hope not."
Aug 12 21:38:09 <Dexanote> "We could burn the shack. Just get out of here while it burns."
Aug 12 21:38:29 <Pemander> "If they're in the woods, there's no way we can just…get rid of them."
Aug 12 21:38:43 <Pemander> "Who knows how many there are? Plus hunting them all down would be impossible."
Aug 12 21:39:42 <Echo> "Burning it wouldn't do anything. All that'd do is tell everything within 5 miles we're here."
Aug 12 21:39:59 <Echo> "I say we just get the fuck out of here. Go as quick as we can back to the truck."
Aug 12 21:41:24 <Dexanote> "… Alright. Sleeps, hold onto Scott. I'll go in front. Ari, you alright with going behind?"
Aug 12 21:41:34 <Pemander> "Yeah, sure."
Aug 12 21:42:45 <Dexanote> She nods, making sure Sleeps has a good hold on Scoot before setting off. "… We really should have brought the LAV."
Aug 12 21:43:38 <Pemander> Arianna takes it up the rear. I mean takes up the rear.
Aug 12 21:43:49 <Pemander> She looks all around, holding knives at the ready.
Aug 12 21:44:32 <Echo> Scott checks his rifle and starts out the door behind Arianna.
Aug 12 21:44:40 <Echo> *ahead of
Aug 12 21:45:27 <Dexanote> "Alright…" She holds a gun tightly, obviously nervous. "Do any of you have extra flashlights?"
Aug 12 21:45:42 <Echo> Scott reaches back with his handheld.
Aug 12 21:47:09 <Maddy> As they head off, the strange glow spots rise from the ground here and there, but never closer than a couple hundred yards.
Aug 12 21:47:11 <Dexanote> She takes the light, slipping ahead of him. "Alright."
Aug 12 21:47:31 <Dexanote> She peers out into the darkness. "… we're being watched."
Aug 12 21:47:56 <Pemander> "No different from usual, then. Fucking spy sattelites."
Aug 12 21:48:18 <Echo> "Spy satellites aren't real."
Aug 12 21:48:26 <Maddy> Occationally it looks like the glows split into three, the go back together.
Aug 12 21:48:27 <Dexanote> "Didn't you say you weren't into conspiracies?"
Aug 12 21:48:40 <Pemander> "It's not a conspiracy if it's an established fact."
Aug 12 21:49:14 <Echo> How high up is it?
Aug 12 21:49:37 <Maddy> just a foot or two off the ground.
Aug 12 21:49:51 <Pemander> "Looks like they're ignoring us."
Aug 12 21:50:03 <Pemander> Arianna walks a bit faster. "Come on, we're almost back."

Aug 12 21:54:07 <Ragazzo> He carries!
Aug 12 21:54:40 <Maddy> ?
Aug 12 21:55:45 <Echo> Scott crawls into the back of the Hummer and waits to be ferried.
Aug 12 21:55:50 <Echo> He quickly passes out.

Aug 12 21:58:01 <Dexanote> She starts up the truck and guns it. "We're fucking out of here."
