Dec 25 22:09:55 <E4D> Jason hums. Occassionally, he can be heard muttering as they approach the water. <I was bangin' 7-gram rocks, that's how I roll…>
Dec 25 22:10:25 <Maddy> <…> Snicker.

Dec 25 22:17:07 <E4D> Jason climbs in up front, slipping into his vest and laying across the front as always.

Dec 25 22:34:40 <PaulS_laptop> John's gun comes off it's belt hanger
Dec 25 22:35:08 <Maddy> Alice nods manouvering them around to the deck.

Dec 25 22:40:15 <LaitoGM> Jason and Alice's hawk-like observation of the boat earn them a glimpse of… something…. moving along the hull from the opposite side, clinging… almost like a very large, uh… starfish? You wanna say starfish. The half of it's body that you see it almost like that, with multiple tendrils making up its 'body'.
Dec 25 22:40:31 <LaitoGM> Jill, Physical defense please.

Dec 25 22:42:08 <Maddy> <Jesus fuck!> Alice gets readdy to gun it.
Dec 25 22:44:47 <LaitoGM> The water on Jill's side of the boat erupts. Your ears are filled with a horrendous, inhuman -sucking- noise - a forceful, unending inhalation, as the horror bursts from the ocean's surface. Jill is wrapped with thick, black, spiny tentacles that curl around her exoskeleton and body.
Dec 25 22:44:47 <LaitoGM> It's like a terrifying starfish, only much, much bigger.
Dec 25 22:44:55 <LaitoGM> No damage, but Athletics, Jill.

Dec 25 22:56:16 <LaitoGM> John dives right into the water. It's dark, murky, The starfish horror is wrapping around Samson wrapped around Jill. He'll be in place for a single attempt, but will have to make consecutive Athletics checks to dive further down as the monster descends, and man is it getting hard to see….
Dec 25 22:56:16 <LaitoGM> Jillian may now make an athletics roll to break free. If John can maintain his depth and bearing, he ay help, but not this time.

Dec 26 00:40:43 <PaulS_laptop> about 40yds, correct?
Dec 26 00:43:15 <LaitoGM> Haha, no, that's the distance he is to the Hawkesbury. Jill is about 1-15 feet below him. And he certainly can get there to reach her, but for this round, that's all he can accomplish. John and Jill take 1 Body damage as their lungs start to starve of oxygen.

Dec 26 00:55:45 <Maddy> <You g-get John, Ill get Jill.>
Dec 26 00:57:22 <E4D> Jason tries to match speed and comes alongside John, reaching out with the large manipulator arm, trying to grab him by the arm.
Dec 26 00:58:37 <LaitoGM> Well, while this is very plausible, it depends on if John is going to let Jason grab him.
Dec 26 00:58:47 <PaulS_laptop> John evades, but grabs onto the robot, waving in Jill's direction
Dec 26 00:58:49 <LaitoGM> John is currently drowning, so… it's up to him.

Dec 26 01:01:15 <LaitoGM> John is pulled a bit away from Jill by Jason's bot. Alice.

Dec 26 01:30:43 <LaitoGM> Alice witnesses something rather disturbing
Dec 26 01:33:32 <LaitoGM> Without unwrapping from Samson, The fish horror flips its body to face away from its prey, revealing grotesque beaky maw of a mouth filled with spiny, grinding teeth. The mouth opens, unexpectedly wide, screaming into the water as it jets an inky red liquid, propelling it further into the deep, dragging Alice's bot with it if she holds on.
Dec 26 01:34:10 <Maddy> Alice's bot holds on, but she's also towing it back as had as she can.
Dec 26 01:34:28 <Maddy> The arms will likely snap off at this rate.
Dec 26 01:36:14 <LaitoGM> Deeper and deeper it goes. It must be 50 yards down by now, nearing the sea floor. Depending on her view quality, Alice may note that the sea floor is a thick blanket of red… liquid? Goo? Something heavier than water.
Dec 26 01:36:56 <Maddy> <COME ON!> she torues the towline hard

Dec 26 01:40:44 <LaitoGM> Truly, this is a home to something monstrous. As the starfish wrenches its prize to the sea floor, the gooey red liquid disperses a little… the floor is black, writhing… it rises up to meet Alice's camera feed and it goes black.
Dec 26 01:40:54 <Maddy> <Alice, take care of John.> she shakes her head, still trying to reel Jill in. <Alice…stop.> he pulls her away from the controls, atempting to bring in the bot, be it still intact. If not, he detaches the towline, not wanting to be conected to the starfish o doom.
