Bobble's Surveillance Silliness

(10:01:31 PM) Roget: Is there anybody in the common room?
(10:01:36 PM) ProcyonRPs: Tyler is
(10:01:38 PM) Randomini left the room (quit: Quit: ChatZilla [Firefox 26.0/20131205075310]).
(10:01:53 PM) Roget: Tyler, you see the television turn on by itself.
(10:02:12 PM) ProcyonRPs: Tyler stands up to examine it, muttering.
(10:02:26 PM) choobakka left the room (quit: Quit: i need sleep now goodbye).
(10:02:46 PM) Roget: Tyler, it's a fuzzy static image. There's indistinct muttering behind it
(10:02:49 PM) Bright: Cowboy tugs down his hat and buries his nose in his book. Something by Louis L'amour.
(10:03:25 PM) Roget: "… kids!"
(10:03:34 PM) ProcyonRPs: Tyler backs the fuck up. If he learnt anything in Morocco, it's that…
(10:03:37 PM) ProcyonRPs: "Oh shit."
(10:03:45 PM) Cowboy glances up. "Turn that shit off."
(10:04:37 PM) ProcyonRPs: "I didn't turn it on."
(10:05:04 PM) Roget: Slowly, the staticy image fades away, revealing a clown with orange hair and pastel-colored patchwork clothing.
(10:05:15 PM) Bright: Mikell goes back to reading… then stops, slow drift upwards. "I don't care who turned it on, turn that shit off."
(10:06:02 PM) ProcyonRPs: Tyler tries to turn the TV off. He doesn't recognize the character, but he's not really familiar with children's programming besides Soupy Sales. He does not, however, like the look of that clown.
(10:06:28 PM) Roget: "Today, on the Bobble the Clown show, it's 'Bobble's Shadow Government Shenanigans!' We're going to teach those bums who block my signal a thing or two!"
(10:07:14 PM) Roget is now known as RogetGMs
(10:07:18 PM) ProcyonRPs: Tyler removes his hand from the dial. This is deep shit.
(10:07:19 PM) Cowboy puts the magazine down, and stares at the TV. "Bobble the Clown?
(10:07:39 PM) ProcyonRPs: He turns to Cowboy. "Uh, call somebody. Security. This isn't a legitimate signal, I don't think."
(10:07:44 PM) RogetGMs: The scene fades to static again. Muted, alien sounds can be heard behind it, but they're extremely muffled.
(10:08:06 PM) ihp: Jacob is oblivious to all of this. Nothing exciting ever happens to him.
(10:08:17 PM) MereObserver: James nods to Luvi. "Hey German, I'm going to common. You wanna come?"
(10:08:44 PM) ZombieRaptor: "After I finish reloading my magazines"
(10:08:44 PM) RogetGMs: It changes to a picture of a supercomputer, with a cartoon image of Jacob working on it. Bobble is hiding behind the computer.
(10:09:08 PM) RogetGMs: "You see, kids, the shadow government uses computers like these to keep tabs on every boy and girl in america. They're better than Santa Claus!"
(10:09:10 PM) ProcyonRPs: "Oh fuck. Cowboy! Get Jacob!"
(10:09:34 PM) ZombieRaptor: Luvi finishes up and begins strolling calmly towards the commons
(10:10:00 PM) Cowboy grabs the phone. "Hey, we got some kind of breach in the commons."
(10:10:02 PM) RogetGMs: Bobble reaches inside, and yanks something. Jacon, roll agility
(10:10:09 PM) MereObserver: James follows beside Luvi, grabbing a cigarette out of his pocket on the way there.
(10:10:13 PM) RogetGMs: "What is the nature of the breach?"
(10:10:20 PM) ihp: 4df+3 oh god oh god oh god
(10:10:20 PM) Glacon: ihp: oh god oh god oh god: 5 (4df+3=+, 0, +, 0)
(10:10:30 PM) RogetGMs: 4df+4 PULL!
(10:10:30 PM) Glacon: RogetGMs: PULL!: 2 (4df+4=0, -, -, 0)
(10:10:38 PM) ZombieRaptor: Luvi stops to tie one of his shoes
(10:11:04 PM) gauzebal1: Harlan is currently oblivious to all of this,
(10:11:09 PM) RogetGMs: Jacob, the titanic Univac computer suddenly has the console explode into a mess of static and white-hot plastic and metal. Luckily, you manage to hop back away before any of it gets on you.
(10:11:19 PM) Bright: "Some kind of clown on the televison… "
(10:11:23 PM) MereObserver: James stops to be polite, lighting the cigarette as he waits for Luvi.
(10:11:38 PM) ZombieRaptor: Luvi stands up, nodding to James.
(10:11:48 PM) RogetGMs: On the television screen, the Jacob figure is horribly disfigured by the burns, with a hyper-realistic closeup of his face as the flesh is rendered from it, and his bones melt into his mouth and he chokes on his own bile.
(10:11:55 PM) ihp: Jacob yelps, staring at the console. "W-what the fuck…" He pulls out his pistol. "Where are you…"
(10:11:55 PM) RogetGMs: Bobble giggles.
(10:12:06 PM) MereObserver: James nods in the direction of commons. "Let's go."
(10:12:09 PM) ProcyonRPs: "OhfuckohfuckohfuckohfuckOHFUCK"
(10:12:14 PM) ihp: "All right, you fucking ghost! I ain't afraid of you!"
(10:12:22 PM) RogetGMs: "Are you sure you didn't tune into the kiddie channel?"
(10:12:28 PM) GottaGoFeast left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(10:12:29 PM) RogetGMs: Jacob, you hear giggling
(10:12:30 PM) ZombieRaptor: Luvi starts walking
(10:12:43 PM) ihp: Jacob turns in the direction of the giggling, pistol raised.
(10:12:47 PM) ProcyonRPs: Tyler rushes over and snaps the phone out of Cowboy's hand. "Doctor to computer lab, immediately!"
(10:12:50 PM) Bright: "Turned on without anyone near it. Seems to be interacting with real world people."
(10:12:51 PM) MereObserver: James puffs on his cigarette as he goes.
(10:12:57 PM) Bright: "We need a doctor."
(10:13:41 PM) RogetGMs: "Where do you need that doctor dispatched to?"
(10:13:52 PM) MereObserver: James walks in on the panic in the common room "Uh…."
(10:14:00 PM) Bright: "Computer lab, apparently."
(10:14:29 PM) RogetGMs: "We've dispatched an agent to your location, and alerted the medical department to the possibility of injuries."
(10:14:38 PM) RogetGMs: The television fades to static again.
(10:14:41 PM) ProcyonRPs: Tyler returns to the set.
(10:14:44 PM) RogetGMs: Jacob, there's nothing
(10:14:45 PM) ZombieRaptor: Luvi stops "What the fuck is going on?"
(10:15:18 PM) ihp: Jacob slowly starts to back out of the computer lab. ~God damn it. I need to find Ivan when I get a chance. Ask for more of that sage~
(10:15:25 PM) RogetGMs: Jacob, a guy in a lab coat walks into the computer lab. "Everything okay?"
(10:15:29 PM) ProcyonRPs: Tyler tries to relay what he saw, but it's just a jumbled mix of Clowns and Jacob and Computers and Burns
(10:15:53 PM) ZombieRaptor: "Uhhh, Tyler are you still drunk?"
(10:15:56 PM) ihp: Jacob blinks at the man in the lab coat, holstering his pistol. "T-the computer in here exploded. I was going to notify someone…"
(10:16:08 PM) MereObserver: James shakes his head. "You're not making any sense man."
(10:16:09 PM) RogetGMs: The television screen changes to one of the common room, with everyone in it. Bobble does a voiceover. "You see, kids, this is called 'clustering' and it is a very bad tactic. Naughty, naughty, shadow government!"
(10:16:17 PM) ProcyonRPs: "N-no! You saw it to, Cowb-"
(10:16:21 PM) ProcyonRPs: Tyler shrieks.
(10:16:26 PM) RogetGMs: The doctor looks at it. "They said we had an injury here."
(10:16:34 PM) ZombieRaptor: "What the fuck is that!"
(10:16:44 PM) MereObserver: James turns to the TV, then around the room. "The…fuck….?"
(10:16:46 PM) ihp: "There nearly was one; I didn't even get burned. Just lucky, I guess."
(10:16:48 PM) ProcyonRPs: He runs to a corner of the room. He heard the word cluster, and filled in the rest.
(10:17:11 PM) RogetGMs: "well, if you're okay, we can go report the damages."
(10:17:41 PM) RogetGMs: "So, kids, what do we do when we have a big cluster of… stuff, and you don't want it around anymore?"
(10:17:53 PM) ZombieRaptor: Luvi grabs Tyler and tries to forcibly drag him out of the commons room, realizing this is not the place to be.
(10:18:03 PM) ProcyonRPs: Tyler doesn't really resist.
(10:18:14 PM) ihp: Jacob nods, going to an intercom. "Hello, this is Doctor Wexley from the computer lab; the Univac in the lab just exploded. I'm fine, but do we have any repairmen on staff?"
(10:18:40 PM) RogetGMs: "We have some, but please remain in your current location. The site is currently on a level 2 lockdown."
(10:18:42 PM) ProcyonRPs: "Somebody needs to watch that infernal thing… or god knows"
(10:18:53 PM) RogetGMs: "We make it go away!"
(10:18:56 PM) ihp: "…lockdown? What for?"
(10:19:04 PM) ZombieRaptor: "Fucking shit what's happening"
(10:19:11 PM) MereObserver: James goes over to the TV and looks behind it for any out of place wires.
(10:19:18 PM) MereObserver: "Someone is fucking with us…"
(10:19:20 PM) ZombieRaptor: Luvi un slings his rifle and chambers a round.
(10:19:34 PM) RogetGMs: With that, the jukebox begins blaring a horrible screaming sound, and the piano goes ape shit with various keys. The wind kicks up, and the newspapers fly around, and the TV begins shooting out sparks.
(10:19:39 PM) ZombieRaptor: "James! Get out!"
(10:19:46 PM) gauzebal1: Harlan enters the computer lab.
(10:19:50 PM) RogetGMs: James, physical defense to not die
(10:19:55 PM) ihp: Can Jacob hear any of the stuff coming from the commons?
(10:20:03 PM) RogetGMs: "we appear to have an incident in the common room." no he cannot
(10:20:11 PM) MereObserver: 4df+5 Here's to not dying
(10:20:11 PM) Glacon: MereObserver: Here's to not dying: 6 (4df+5=0, +, -, +)
(10:20:31 PM) RogetGMs: 4df+4 Zap! Zap!
(10:20:31 PM) Glacon: RogetGMs: Zap! Zap!: 6 (4df+4=-, +, +, +)
(10:20:37 PM) gauzebal1: "I heard something explode. Know what that might have been?"
(10:20:54 PM) RogetGMs: James, a burst of sparks blasts you in the face, knocking you on yer ass without injury
(10:21:06 PM) MereObserver: "GAHFUCK!"
(10:21:17 PM) ihp: Jacob stares at the intercom. ~The… Common Room?~
(10:21:22 PM) MereObserver: James gets off his ass and bolts from the room.
(10:21:39 PM) ihp: "Well, why haven't you announced anything?! I haven't heard anything on the PA system!"
(10:21:42 PM) ProcyonRPs: Tyler is panting, trying to pay attention to the monitor.
(10:22:16 PM) gauzebal1: "Jacob, what happened here?"
(10:22:26 PM) ZombieRaptor: Luvi stands by, rifle in hand.
(10:22:36 PM) ihp: Jacob looks at Harlan. "The Univac exploded. I heard giggling."
(10:23:02 PM) gauzebal1: "Univac?"
(10:23:05 PM) RogetGMs: Suddenly, the commotion in the common room dies down. Newspapers drop like lead weights to the floor, and the Jukebox plays some soothing music.
(10:23:21 PM) MereObserver: James run to the nearest PA system, pressing down the button.
(10:23:34 PM) ProcyonRPs: A deep breath. "Don't go back in. Same thing happened the first time."
(10:23:42 PM) RogetGMs: "That was fuuun, kids! I'm sure we taught those gestapo fascists a real lesson, huh? They must be shaking in their boots!"
(10:23:47 PM) RogetGMs: "See you next week…"
(10:23:48 PM) ProcyonRPs: "With less dramatics, but still. We don't know it's over."
(10:23:54 PM) ProcyonRPs: He cringes at the voice.
(10:23:55 PM) RogetGMs: The TV fades to static once more, then shuts off
(10:23:59 PM) ZombieRaptor: ~Gestapo fascists?~
(10:24:16 PM) Cowboy slowly raises his head.
(10:24:19 PM) ZombieRaptor: "Tyler, what was that?"
(10:24:23 PM) Bright: Mikel cusses. "Fuck."
(10:24:36 PM) ihp: Jacob hangs up the intercom, and makes his way for the commons.
(10:24:41 PM) ProcyonRPs: "It called itself Bobble the Clown, and that's about it."
(10:24:50 PM) gauzebal1: Harlan follows Jacob.
(10:24:55 PM) ProcyonRPs: "It showed Jacob, burning in a shower of sparks, and then you know the rest."
(10:24:57 PM) Bright: Mikell walks over towards the TV, and checks to see if its plugged in.
(10:25:17 PM) ZombieRaptor: Luvi proceeds to pull the bolt on his rifle back, ejecting the loaded shell.
(10:26:01 PM) ihp: Jacob walks into the commons. "I heard there was an incident in here. What happened?"
(10:26:04 PM) ZombieRaptor: "Should we get James to medical? Make sure he's entirely fine?"
(10:26:42 PM) ProcyonRPs: "Oh Jesus Christ, Jacob. You're alright. There was an accident on the television, an-and-"
(10:26:49 PM) ProcyonRPs: He's a nervous wreck.
(10:27:00 PM) RogetGMs: The TV is not plugged in
(10:27:01 PM) ihp: "…the Univac exploded. Nearly took off my face."
(10:27:07 PM) MereObserver: James walks back over to everyone outside of the commons. "Did everything calm down?"
(10:27:10 PM) ihp: "I heard giggling."
(10:27:14 PM) gauzebal1: (what does the room look like?)
(10:27:25 PM) NachtRuine: Jed awakens through no fault of anyone else. He groggily looks at the time and realizes that a) he's been asleep and b) he's been asleep for a long time. Slightly panicked, he jolts himself awake and keeps working, pretending nothing at all happened.
(10:27:29 PM) ProcyonRPs: "I saw a clown. I saw a clown."
(10:27:43 PM) gauzebal1: "A clown?"
(10:27:51 PM) ihp: "A… clown. You were scared by a clown."
(10:28:04 PM) ZombieRaptor: "All I saw was Tyler freak out and James knocked on his ass."
(10:28:21 PM) ProcyonRPs: "I was scared by the clown pulling a wire and destroying the entire goddamn computer lab with you in it. I saw your fl-flesh melt off!"
(10:28:28 PM) ***Bright frowns deeper. "Right." He snags a dolly, wraps the cord on top of the TV, and then loads up the TV. "I'ma take this down to the eggheads."
(10:28:45 PM) ProcyonRPs: "And then it showed us, in the common room, and then everything went to hell."
(10:29:01 PM) RogetGMs: The TV is loaded!
(10:29:29 PM) Cowboy takes it to… the appropriate people to investigate?
(10:29:50 PM) ihp: "…a wire was pulled? What? Is that why my computer exploded?" He frowns. "This is disturbing. Write an Enigmadoc about it to Ivan when you get the chance."
(10:30:08 PM) ZombieRaptor: Luvi sits down, running a hand through his hair.
(10:30:37 PM) gauzebal1: Harlan looks at the room. What does it look like to him?
(10:30:47 PM) RogetGMs: Probably in the containment wing, cowboy
(10:30:47 PM) MereObserver: James runs his hands over his face, half to calm himself down and half to make sure it's still there.
(10:30:48 PM) ProcyonRPs: Tyler just shakes his head.
(10:31:00 PM) DrRobWatson [~PI.20C128A7.A7723E84.50F87624|diordnA#PI.20C128A7.A7723E84.50F87624|diordnA] entered the room.
(10:31:13 PM) NachtRuine: Jed whistles while he works to keep the suspicion that he's been sleeping off him.
(10:31:28 PM) Cowboy drops it off with the appropriate people, signs the right forms, then ambles back to the commons room.
(10:31:44 PM) ZombieRaptor: Luvi quietly states "This place is crazy…"
(10:34:02 PM) MereObserver: James goes back in the common room, looking around for cameras of any kind.
(10:34:21 PM) ZombieRaptor: Luvi is still sitting on the ground.
(10:34:43 PM) ProcyonRPs: Tyler goes back into the room, reluctantly, and sits down.
(10:34:57 PM) Bright: Mikell lights up a ciggarette. "Huh. That was odd.
(10:35:29 PM) ZombieRaptor: Luvi stands up and walks to a chair, collapsing into it.
(10:38:41 PM) ZombieRaptor left the room (quit: Client exited).
(10:40:38 PM) ihp: Jacob turns on the jukebox and sighs. "So… you thought I was dead?"
(10:41:01 PM) ProcyonRPs: "It looked for all the world that way."
(10:41:21 PM) gauzebal1: ~That's twice in a row it starts in the commons room~
(10:42:09 PM) gauzebal1: ~first the lasers, now this~
(10:43:05 PM) ihp: "Was it… live action? Or a puppet show? A cartoon, maybe?"
(10:43:08 PM) ZombieRaptor [~ten.labolgcbs.xtnans.deepsthgil.17171A4E-CRInys|paReibmoZ#ten.labolgcbs.xtnans.deepsthgil.17171A4E-CRInys|paReibmoZ] entered the room.
(10:44:15 PM) gauzebal1: "You guys think this is related to the…incident yesterday?"
(10:45:16 PM) ZombieRaptor: Is Harlan in the commons?
(10:45:28 PM) gauzebal1: (yes)
(10:45:32 PM) ProcyonRPs: "I don't think so. Unless this is all our SPECIALFRIEND from the boxes."
(10:45:46 PM) ZombieRaptor: "Our what?"
(10:46:08 PM) gauzebal1: "If I'm correct, both of these involved a single one of us being the target of something emitting high heat."
(10:47:02 PM) gauzebal1: "Granted, from what I've gathered, this one seems a bit more malicious."
(10:48:13 PM) MereObserver: "But lasers and tv clowns are a bit a a stretch." James gathers the papers from the ground.
(10:48:30 PM) ZombieRaptor: "What's the average life expectancy for guys like us?"
(10:48:55 PM) gauzebal1: "I dunno, yesterday seemed like a bit of a bad joke to me."
(10:49:38 PM) ihp: "…I don't think this place does jokes, Mr. Cohen. Dr. Regal doesn't seem equipped to handle humor."
(10:50:21 PM) Audient_Void is now known as Neutronium
(10:50:29 PM) gauzebal1: "I was referring to the clown being the perpetrator of bad jokes."
