We Are Legion

Sep 05 23:22:27 <Salmander> Redd found a music shop. He's sitting at a piano and playing an old, slow tune.
Sep 05 23:22:35 <Maddy> A while later. «Midnight, Joey? L-looks like we're in the clear. He's got a little left in him, b-but he'll be fine.»
Sep 05 23:22:47 <E4D> Redd is off by himself, Salmander?

Sep 05 23:23:06 <PaulS_laptop> john walks up to Kay, taking off his shirt beforehand and gets behind her. He wrings his diesel fuel soaked shirt out over her head

Sep 05 23:24:53 <E4D> Redd wriggles free, slinging a dozen ras from from, their dull yellow teeth barely visible. Their beedy red eyes can be seen much more easily.
Sep 05 23:25:00 <E4D> *rats from him
Sep 05 23:25:06 <Maddy> «Always g-good to be p-prepared.»
Sep 05 23:25:19 <E4D> A horde of insects masses behind them, ready to consume what the rats subdue.

Sep 05 23:26:50 <PaulS_laptop> «Redd, what's up?»
Sep 05 23:26:51 <E4D> They set on him, ripping holes in the fabric of the suit, tearing huge sections threadbare.
Sep 05 23:27:02 <Salmander> «I'm in the music sto- OW goddamn»
Sep 05 23:27:27 <Maddy> Alice jumps up running to find him. «Shout s-so I can find you!»

Sep 05 23:28:14 <PaulS_laptop> John puts his shirt back on and grabs his stuff. Including the flamethrower, and heads off with Alice
Sep 05 23:28:16 <E4D> He hits, what does he expect? It's a .357 revolver against insects and a dozen rats.
Sep 05 23:28:23 <Maddy> «I meant off the radio…but I hear youe gun.» she heads that away. «John, b-bring your flame thrower.»

Sep 05 23:28:41 <Flames> Midnight heads out with Alice.
Sep 05 23:29:59 <Salmander> Redd fires his pistol into the air and shouts at the critters, stomping his shoes.

Sep 05 23:31:00 <E4D> It is indeed, leading her there just as effectively as a toucan's nose leading it to fruity cereal.
Sep 05 23:31:20 <Salmander> Are you saying Redd is fruity
Sep 05 23:31:23 <Maddy> Alice rounds a corner. "Fuck…"
Sep 05 23:31:55 <Salmander> Redd jumps and bursts out of the display window of the music store.
Sep 05 23:32:54 <E4D> He's pursued by an entity shaped vaguely like a human, composed of rats and vermin.
Sep 05 23:33:07 <PaulS_laptop> "Alice, help Redd. I need him out of the line of fire."
Sep 05 23:33:25 <Salmander> "FUCKIN' SHOOT!" Redd crumples
Sep 05 23:33:39 <Maddy> Alice nods, grabbing the pile of Redd and getting out of the way!

Sep 05 23:35:22 <E4D> The entity is immolated, a walking pyre, and flails toward the group, launching itself at the obvious target.
Sep 05 23:35:24 <Salmander> The pile shakes in Alice's arms. "All I wanted to do was play some goddamn frank Sinatra, but /no/."
Sep 05 23:35:26 <E4D> John, roll defense.

Sep 05 23:37:55 <E4D> It flails, collapsing, and hits the ground, spilling into a wide swath of flaming bugs. The rats die quickly, and the bugs pop and fizzle as they burst and burn from the intense heat.
Sep 05 23:38:14 <E4D> There's a scream, and the lights of the music store flare on for a moment before going dark again.
Sep 05 23:38:24 <Maddy> "…"
Sep 05 23:38:30 <PaulS_laptop> John cackles at his handiwork, not noticing the scream
Sep 05 23:38:35 <Salmander> "I… what the fuck?" The hat looks up.
Sep 05 23:38:43 <PaulS_laptop> "?"
Sep 05 23:38:59 <Flames> Midnight growls softly, then exhales. "All right, then. I'm pretty tired. Using a lot of magic in a short time will do that."
Sep 05 23:39:06 <Maddy> Alice sets red down. "There w-was a scream. I'm g-going in."
Sep 05 23:39:50 <Salmander> "I'll be, uh, behind you." Redd takes out his magnum.
Sep 05 23:39:52 <PaulS_laptop> "I'll cover you"
Sep 05 23:39:54 <Flames> I'll follow you, Alice. I'm pretty tapped, but I can at least give you intelligence."
Sep 05 23:40:00 <PaulS_laptop> John still has the flamethrower
Sep 05 23:40:00 <Maddy> Alice pulls her helmet back on and pokes her head in the broken window.

Sep 05 23:43:55 <Flames> Midnight walks through the store, sniffing around. The advantage of being a cat is that rodents will give you a wide berth.
