Fae: Evan makes his way to Confrence Room 23-a.
[09:22am] DSJ: (she's back now)
[09:22am] DSJ: Amadeo does as well
[09:22am] Sax left the chat room. (Ping timeout: 180 seconds)
[09:23am] Alivi: When you get there, there is a man and a woman there. The woman seems to be some sort of an assistant and hands the agents files as they enter. The man straightens his tie as he waits for the agents to file in.
[09:24am] Fae: Evan thanks her and flips through the file.
[09:24am] Aphex_: Hans reads as well.
[09:24am] DSJ: Amadeo also does!
[09:24am] Alivi: There seems to be a picture of one of the nearby towns. Pretty accessible by the rail on site. There are various reports of some type of ghost or poltergiest causing trouble!
[09:25am] DSJ: What kind of trouble?
[09:25am] LadyKatie: Sandra greets the other agents and reads.
[09:26am] Fae: Anything unusual for a ghost, or standard fare?
[09:26am] Alivi: What started as normal possessions, moving items, typical hauntings have progressed to a couple of deaths. 7 to be exact killed in all various manners.
[09:27am] DSJ: Would those happen to be related to the seven deadly sins?
[09:27am] Alivi: no. But seems to be related to their occupations. For example one was a chef who burned to death in his kitchen. A sailor whose ship’s anchor fell on him.
[09:27am] DSJ: "So, any idea on how to contain this thing?"
[09:29am] Alivi: “…Well that’s what we were hoping you’d know.” The man says looking at the team, “Optimally we want it contained of course. But if it must be dystroyed then you might have to default to that…” The woman shifts uncomfortably.
[09:31am] Alivi: “We have arranged for a train to depart the depot when you are ready. All things considered this anomaly seems to be procedure. Should be an easy mission.”
[09:33am] Fae: "A binding circle might work if we can catch it. Some salt…"
[09:33am] Fae: Evan eyes the woman. ~Now what are you thinking…~
[09:34am] Alivi: She rocks on her heels a bit, seems to be trying to distract herself by looking at some sort of planner.
[09:34am] Fae: "…Do you have any information that might help us, ma'am?"
[09:36am] Alivi: She looks up and then glances to her planner again. “Nothing more than is already in your files, Agent.”
[09:36am] Fae: 4df+6 PERC to tell if she's being truthful?
[09:36am] Glacon: Fae: PERC to tell if she's being truthful?: 9 (4df+6=+, 0, +, +)
[09:37am] LadyKatie: Sandra shrugs and looks to Hans. "[Ready to go?]"
[09:38am] DrSavage joined the chat room.
[09:38am] Aphex_: "[Almost. Should probably grab shotgun.]" He wanders out, then right back in with his hacked-up Winchester.
[09:38am] Alivi: She is telling the truth but somehow even that seems to be tinged with a little bending.
[09:39am] Fae: ~Hmmm~ Evan brings the file with him. He'll try to read between the lines on the way over.
[09:40am] DSJ: Amadeo gets his things together and heads to the train station. Today, he scares a ghost.
[09:41am] Alivi: The train is there and the doors are open on the 5th compartment. Seems to be a 6 car train.
[09:43am] LadyKatie: Sandra walks with Hans to the train I guess?
[09:44am] Fae: As does Evan?
[09:45am] Aphex_: Hans boards!
[09:45am] LadyKatie: ChooChoo!
[09:46am] DSJ: Amadeo boards
[09:46am] Lily is now known as LilySleep.
[09:46am] Alivi: Yep once you all get whatever gear you need the train is there waiting for people to board. Once everyone is in and seated the train would get moving. It will take approx 2 hours to get to the town you all have time to kill. The car is pretty nice. Lots of windows and red fabric curtains. Racks for luggage and lots of empty space since ya’ll are the only ones there.
[09:47am] Fae: Evan practices exorcisms on the way.
[09:47am] Alivi: There seems to be some sort of Intercom near the door leading to Car 5. Emergency brake is located near the door to Car 6.
[09:47am] Fae: To everyone else he probably just looks like a madman chanting latin.
[09:47am] Alivi: The train pulls out and you all are now in the train. Riding along.
[09:47am] DSJ: Amadeo reads about lockpicking on the way there
[09:48am] Alivi: what is Hans and Sandra doing?
[09:48am] LadyKatie: Sandra's reading. It's quiet time off site.
[09:48am] Aphex_: Hans naps on the way. ZzzZZZzz.
[09:48am] Fae: "There seems to be some sort of Intercom near the door leading to Car 5." Aren't they in car already?
[09:49am] Fae: car 5 already?
[09:49am] Alivi: Car 4*
[09:49am] Alivi: They are indeed in Car 5. Apologies~! Anyways. Everyone pdef
[09:50am] Fae: 4df+3 oh crud
[09:50am] Glacon: Fae: oh crud: 3 (4df+3=0, 0, 0, 0)
[09:50am] DSJ: 4df+3 PDEF
[09:50am] Glacon: DSJ: PDEF: 5 (4df+3=+, +, -, +)
[09:50am] LadyKatie: 4df+5 fuck
[09:50am] Glacon: LadyKatie: fuck: 5 (4df+5=-, -, +, +)
[09:50am] Aphex_: 4df+5 k
[09:50am] Glacon: Aphex_: k: 6 (4df+5=-, +, +, 0)
[09:51am] Fae: Evan dies.
[09:52am] Alivi: The Train suddenly comes to a screeching and shuddering halt! The force of the sudden stop causes Evan to be thrown! He gets quite the bruise when he hits the floor. The rest of you managed to sucessfully brace yourselves.
[09:52am] Fae: "Ooof!"
[09:53am] DiePotato joined the chat room.
[09:53am] DiePotato was promoted to operator by ChanServ.
[09:53am] DSJ: "What're the odds the ghost did this?"
[09:54am] Alivi: The lights of the compartment begin to flicker slightly before going dark. It seems darker outside now. And the lights turn on once again. They have a slightly grey tinge to it rather than the earlier warm glow. The train begins to move again, although at quite the fast pace.
[09:54am] Fae: "…Very good."
[09:54am] LadyKatie: Sandra tries to wake up Hans, because that was freaky
[09:54am] Fae: Evan turns on his magic glasses in hopes of not being blindsided again.
[09:55am] Aphex_: He sniffs, apparently already up and at 'em. "[Will be on guard, let me know if you hear things.]" He keeps the Winchester close.
[09:56am] LadyKatie: "[Usual signal?]"
[09:56am] Alivi: Magical energy is EVERYWHERE
[09:56am] Aphex_: He just nods, brow furrowing a little.
[09:57am] Fae: "Ffff." He turns them back off. That won't do any good.
[09:57am] Fae: "Yup, something's here. Lot of thaumic energy flying around."
[09:59am] DSJ: "Well, at least we didn't have to wait."
[10:00am] Alivi: The train continues to move at its new increased speed.
[10:01am] Fae: "Hey! Cut that out! Come on, I'm willing to talk!"
[10:02am] Alivi: The train shudders.
[10:02am] Fae: ~Let's hope this doesn't get me posessed.~
[10:02am] LadyKatie: "[Evan is doing something stupid.]"
[10:03am] Fae: (Of course he is.)
[10:03am] Fae: 4df+3 Pers. "Come on out and talk."
[10:03am] Glacon: Fae: Pers. "Come on out and talk.": 4 (4df+3=+, +, -, 0)
[10:03am] Alivi: Evan movement on the windows catches your eyes. Red begins to drip down and stain the seats and cushions of the train.
[10:03am] Aphex_: Hans waits around, shotgun held by the receiver. He signs one handed! "[Of course. Any news, ghosts whatever?]"
[10:03am] Alivi: Letters appear in the red. [N.O.]
[10:05am] Fae: Evan sighs. "So you /really/ want to do this the hard way then."
[10:05am] Fae: And then he begins trying to do an exorcism a la the Anti-Occult Kit.
[10:05am] DSJ: "…hmm. Would anyone mind if I tried scaring it?"
[10:05am] Fae: "Nope, go ahead."
[10:06am] Fae: "Likely to get us killed as anything else at this point."
[10:06am] LadyKatie: "[I take that back, Amadeo is trying to do something even more stupid.]"
[10:06am] Aphex_: "[……Is he trying to spook it?]"
[10:06am] Alivi: The train continues to move at the fast speed and the intercom begins to crackle.
[10:06am] DSJ: "I'll let you do whatever your doing first, actually."
[10:06am] LadyKatie: "[Yep.]"
[10:07am] Fae: "No, distracting it might actually help. Or make it lash out. One or the other."
[10:07am] Fae: So the exorcism is doing pretty much nothing?
[10:09am] Alivi: The lights begin to turn warm again. And the blood begins to draw back. But pretty much it seems like the actual entity is not in this compartment only a part of it is. [N.O.T F.A.I.R] is written before the writing vanishes all together. The train is still moving quickly. But the compartment at least looks normal again save for the stains on the seat.
[10:09am] Alivi: seats*
[10:09am] Fae: "Alright, so that pushed it out of /here/, but it think the rest of the train is still posessed."
[10:11am] DSJ: "Well, at least this is a train full of Foundation personnel, not civilians. You might wanna tell the other compartment what happened."
[10:13am] Alivi: The intercom continues to emit statc
[10:14am] Fae: He goes over and tries to turn it on. "Hello?"
[10:15am] Alivi: Just static.
[10:15am] Fae: Evan sighs. "Yeah, let's go check the other compartments."
[10:17am] LadyKatie: "Are we all going?"
[10:17am] DSJ: "Any reason to split up?"
[10:18am] LadyKatie: "Not that I can think of."
[10:18am] Fae: "Unless you want to split up with a possibly angry ghost n the loose."
[10:18am] Aphex_: Hans lemons behind Sandra!
[10:19am] Fae: (Lemons?)
[10:19am] Aphex_: (Lemon being useless)
[10:20am] LadyKatie: (He's not useless though, he can punch or shoot things with an 11)
[10:20am] Aphex_: (e.g. a lemon in reference to a car)
[10:20am] Fae: (ah ok)
[10:21am] Fae: Presumably they head to car 6?
[10:21am] Alivi: So compartment 6 or 4
[10:21am] Alivi: Ya’lls choice
[10:21am] LadyKatie: .ch 6, 4, does it matter?
[10:21am] Glacon: LadyKatie: does it matter?
[10:21am] LadyKatie: Probably
[10:22am] Aphex_: Hans waits for Sandra to decide, as he'll follow her the whole time.
[10:22am] Fae: I figure 6 because after that they don't have to worry on sneak attacks from behind?
[10:22am] LadyKatie: 6 it is.
[10:23am] DSJ: "Let's go with 6."
[10:24am] Alivi: Alright. The last car of the train. When you all enter you notice it is extremely cold def past 0 C if not by 10 degrees or so. There is a metal ladder that likely leads to the roof. But the ladder runs into a door. You’d have to climb it to test to see if it can be opened. There is no one here.
[10:25am] Fae: Evan pulls his coat tighter.
[10:25am] Fae: Is the ghost presence still here?
[10:26am] DSJ: "Evan, you know magic-science stuff, right? Is there any reason why ghosts manipulate temperature."
[10:26am] Alivi: traces of it is. But it isn’t in control. Seems to be that the ghost has changed the train. And then left this compartment.
[10:28am] Fae: "A f-few actually. In thaumic-defficient environments ghosts sometimes steal thermal energy from their surroundings as a power supplement. It's also used by some malevolent ghosts for disorienting and putting prey on edge, and in some extreme cases to induce hypothermia."
[10:28am] LadyKatie: "Then why are we still in here?"
[10:29am] DSJ: "Good question. Should we try the ladder or go back to the fourth car?"
[10:29am] Fae: "Because some ghosts also just cause random fluctuations in reality just by being there and temperature is one of the most easily-altered variables? But I agree, I don't think we can do much here. Let's move towards the front."
[10:30am] Fae: "And I wouldn't advise the ladder. If this thing likes killing people, putting ourselves up on the train roof isn't the best idea."
[10:31am] DSJ: "Sounds reasonable to me."
[10:32am] LadyKatie: "Let's go." ~I am not going on the roof of this train.~
[10:32am] DSJ: Amadeo starts heading there
[10:34am] Aphex_: Hans follows.
[10:34am] Alivi: When you all enter compartment 4 please roll a 1d4
[10:35am] LadyKatie: 1d4 c'mon lucky dice!
[10:35am] Glacon: LadyKatie: c'mon lucky dice!: 3 (1d4=3)
[10:35am] Aphex_: d4 yikes
[10:35am] Glacon: Aphex_: yikes: 1 (d4=1)
[10:36am] Fae: 1d4
[10:36am] Glacon: Fae: 4 (1d4=4)
[10:36am] Fae: lucky dice (hopefully)
[10:36am] DSJ: 1d4
[10:36am] Glacon: DSJ: 1 (1d4=1)
[10:39am] Alivi: Everyone has been messaged.
[10:39am] DSJ: "Ah, great. Anyone else blind?"
[10:39am] Aphex_: "………Ssat makess two."
[10:40am] Fae: "[No I can still see.]" -in fluent ancient mesopotamian.
[10:40am] Fae: "[…Aw crap.]"
[10:40am] LadyKatie: Sandra grabs Hans' hand and spells out 'can't talk'
[10:41am] DSJ: "Great…well, that sounds more like Evan, and not a ghost."
[10:41am] Fae: "[Yup, it's me.]"
[10:41am] Aphex_: "Who is whom? …sheisse. Yyou can hear, mein lieben?"
[10:42am] Aphex_: Hans talking is really weird.
[10:42am] Fae: "[Yes.]" He tries this in Mesopotamian, Swahili, and Aramaic.
[10:42am] SnoozleBee left the chat room. (Quit: Connection closed for inactivity)
[10:42am] Fae: "[Frick.]"
[10:43am] LadyKatie: 'Amadeo has also gone blind, Evan is speaking….. something. Multiple languages. And the one time I'm around when you can hear I can't talk.'
[10:45am] Fae: "[Well, you've had your fun! Ready to talk yet?]"
[10:45am] Fae: "[Because if not…]" he gets ready for another exorcism.
[10:46am] Aphex_: Hans sighs. "
[10:46am] Aphex_: So ist Leben." Wow, fluent German.
[10:47am] Alivi: This seems to be another case where the ghost isn’t actually there. But affected stuff. But there is a loud piercing scream coming from a rather large looking mirror as the exorcism starts.
[10:47am] Fae: He keeps it up.
[10:47am] LadyKatie: Sandra covers her ears.
[10:48am] Fae: ~Ow that hurts.~
[10:48am] DSJ: "Oh shut the fuck up, it's not like you're blind or mute. Or Evan."
[10:48am] Aphex_: "godtverrdammt- SHUT IT UP!" ANGERY.
[10:50am] Alivi: As he continues, there seems to be something forming in the mirror. A ghostly figure it continues to scream. mdef peeps~
[10:50am] Sax joined the chat room.
[10:50am] Aphex_: "Mein lieben, direct me sso ssat I can desstroy ssat noise."
[10:50am] DSJ: But isn't Amadeo blind and therefore unable to see it?
[10:50am] Aphex_: 4df+4 (maybe +3 if sound based?) MDEF!
[10:50am] Glacon: Aphex_: (maybe +3 if sound based?) MDEF!: 6 (4df+4=+, 0, 0, +)
[10:50am] Alivi: If you are blind! You can’t see it. Those who can. Can.
[10:51am] Alivi: The noise is the mdef check
[10:51am] LadyKatie: 4df+4 'are you crazy? No. Why do you want to punch a mirror??'
[10:51am] Glacon: LadyKatie: 'are you crazy? No. Why do you want to punch a mirror??': 5 (4df+4=0, -, +, +)
[10:51am] DSJ: 4df+5 MDEF
[10:51am] Glacon: DSJ: MDEF: 6 (4df+5=-, +, 0, +)
[10:52am] Fae: 7df+6 Mdef
[10:52am] Glacon: Fae: Mdef: 5 (7df+6=-, -, +, +, -, 0, 0)
[10:52am] Fae: Exorcism continues?
[10:53am] Aphex_: "Ja. Pussh me to it." srs.
[10:53am] Alivi: 4df+4 Screaming continues
[10:53am] Glacon: Alivi: Screaming continues: 5 (4df+4=-, +, 0, +)
[10:53am] LadyKatie: Sandra guides Hans to the mirror. Why? Well, she knows she won't be able to convince him to not punch it.
[10:53am] Alivi: Yea ya’ll are fine.
[10:54am] Aphex_: Can he punch it?
[10:54am] Alivi: The excorism continues and the ghost seems to be losing more power. Yes. Hans can tots punch the mirror
[10:54am] Aphex_: 4df+6 (MEL) A N G E R Y
[10:54am] Glacon: Aphex_: (MEL) A N G E R Y: 6 (4df+6=0, +, -, 0)
[10:54am] Alivi: 4df+3 ghostly strength but weak cuz Evan is a jerk to ghosts
[10:54am] Glacon: Alivi: ghostly strength but weak cuz Evan is a jerk to ghosts: 1 (4df+3=-, 0, -, 0)
[10:55am] Alivi: That mirror shatters. And the screaming stops. If Hans wasn’t wearing gloves there might be some sort of cuts and the like on his hand. As pieces of the mirror fall to the floor there is one rosy pink crystal that also falls to the floor.
[10:56am] LadyKatie: Sandra picks up the crystal.
[10:56am] Fae: "[Aha!]" Evan goes to check out said crystal, and shows it to Sandra.
[10:56am] Fae: oh derp
[10:56am] Fae: beat me to the draw
[10:56am] Fae: he still looks at it though.
[10:56am] Fae: 4df+4 Seen It All. Any idea what it might bee?
[10:56am] Glacon: Fae: Seen It All. Any idea what it might bee?: 3 (4df+4=-, 0, +, -)
[10:56am] DSJ: Can Amadeo see now?
[10:57am] Alivi: nope he cant.
[10:57am] DSJ: "I doubt this thing is gone, everyone."
[10:57am] Aphex_: Hans mutters and lets his hand bleed because stupid.
[10:57am] Alivi: Evan all you can think of is that perhaps this crystals energy can counteract the things that the ghost is doing.
[10:57am] Alivi: But it also seems fragile. Maybe 1 use is all you will get out of it.
[11:00am] Aphex_: "Vhell… sshall vhe continue?"
[11:00am] LadyKatie: 'I'm ready to get out of this car.'
[11:00am] Fae: Evan's eyes widen and her tries writing something out o his notepad. "Sandra I think that crystal can hurt the ghost but it only looks like there's one charge." I don't know if this is in english or not.
[11:01am] Alivi: It’s not.
[11:01am] LadyKatie: Sandra grabs Evan's arm 'guide Amadeo.'
[11:02am] Fae: He points the the crystal sandra has. "[This is important.]" He holds out a pair of cupped hands.
[11:05am] Aphex_: "Effan vhould you quit bbabelingk and guidte us out?"
[11:05am] LadyKatie: "I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE SAYING!"
[11:05am] LadyKatie: :O
[11:05am] Alivi: The crystal shatters.
[11:05am] Fae: He points to the crystal again and holds out his hands.
[11:06am] Fae: "[…]"
[11:06am] Fae: He facepalms.
[11:06am] Fae: He sighs and guides Amadeo to the next room.
[11:06am] Aphex_: "…………Lieben? Sind sie das?" He has a very strange look on his face.
[11:07am] LadyKatie: 'yes.'
[11:07am] Aphex_: "……mmh. talk later, guide."
[11:07am] Alivi: If everyone could message me a noun please
[11:07am] LadyKatie: She nods, really sad looking.
[11:08am] Aphex_: He continues to have the shotgun slung about his shoulder.
[11:11am] DSJ left the chat room. (Ping timeout)
[11:12am] DSJ joined the chat room.
[11:12am] DSJ was promoted to half-operator by ChanServ.
[11:13am] DrScottJonas joined the chat room.
[11:13am] DrScottJonas was promoted to half-operator by ChanServ.
[11:13am] DSJ left the chat room. (Quit: sweet dreams by eurythmics works as an alignment system )
[11:13am] DrScottJonas is now known as DSJ.
[11:14am] DSJ: (lk, aphex_ fae, logs?)
[11:14am] Alivi: As you enter compartment 3 everything shines super bright cept for Amedeo and Hans. It seems to be an entire room made out of silver. Towards the end of the compartment there is a shimmering crystal this time a pale blue color. It is in some sort of protective bubble. That means things can still be fixed! Perception.
[11:15am] Alivi: Everything from compartment 4 carries over
[11:15am] LadyKatie: 4df+5 (+4 more if crisis/emergency which this seems to be)
[11:15am] Glacon: LadyKatie: (+4 more if crisis/emergency which this seems to be): 5 (4df+5=0, 0, +, -)

[11:17am] Glacon: Fae: PERC!: 9 (4df+6=+, +, 0, +)
[11:17am] Fae: (seriously these good rolls are scaring me.)
[11:18am] Alivi: Evan and Sandra notice blood dripping from the ceiling. Hans and Amedeo can hear groaning and pained breaths. Sandra and Evan can not only hear that- they can also see the source. People hanging on giant silver hooks impaling their bodies and wearing bloodied Foundation Uniforms
[11:18am] Fae: 0_0
[11:18am] DSJ: "..ugh, I don't want to know what's in here."
[11:19am] LadyKatie: 'we're on our own, but I see another crystal.' Sandra goes for it.
[11:19am] Fae: Evan charges for the crystal.
[11:19am] Aphex_: "…Smellss horrible." His eyes are wide open.
[11:19am] Alivi: Agility!
[11:19am] LadyKatie: 4df+3 mine
[11:19am] Glacon: LadyKatie: mine: 3 (4df+3=+, -, -, +)
[11:19am] Alivi: Evan and Sandra*

[11:19am] Glacon: Fae: Sandra pls: 0 (4df+2=0, 0, -, -)
[11:20am] LadyKatie: Does this one look like it will break?
[11:20am] Fae: "[No! Wait!]"
[11:20am] Alivi: 4df+3 hooks gonna get you
[11:20am] Glacon: Alivi: hooks gonna get you: 6 (4df+3=+, +, +, 0)
[11:21am] Fae: pdef?
[11:21am] Alivi: Sandra a hook comes shooting out towards you and manages to snag you as you dash for the crystal. pdef
[11:21am] Fae: (I need to go assume Evan does more exorcism stuff.)
[11:21am] Alivi: (ok! that will help!)
[11:22am] LadyKatie: 4df+5
[11:22am] Glacon: LadyKatie: 6 (4df+5=+, 0, 0, 0)
[11:23am] Alivi: The hook embeds itself into your shoulder and the hook suddenly stops and goes to try and lift you up. You are so very very close to the crystal.
[11:23am] LadyKatie: REACH!
[11:24am] Alivi: Your fingers brush against the bubble and you just manage to get it. The hook is raising you higher and it is hurting you not as much as it should be.
[11:25am] DSJ: 4df+6 INTIM "This is such a shitty ghost. You really are fucking awful, ghost. You're doing some elaborate show half of us can't even see, and you keep running away like a little bitch whenever we make progress. But, maybe you already know you're going to lose."

[11:26am] Alivi: The bubble around the crystal pops.
[11:26am] LadyKatie: Agility to wiggle off?

[11:27am] Alivi: You wiggle off but it still has you by the fabric of your coat.
[11:30am] LadyKatie: Good thing this isn't the skin. She rips her coat off, hell it can get fixed we have a tailor on site now. And hands the crystal to Amadeo.
[11:30am] LadyKatie: "When you're done with that, can I have it back?:
[11:31am] DSJ: "So, I just break it, right?"
[11:31am] Alivi: Amedeo the crystal shimmers and you regain your sight although it might be a bit of a shock as the entire area is glinting silver.
[11:31am] LadyKatie: "No, hand it back!"
[11:31am] Alivi: It is still sparkling. Seems to be able to be used 1 more time- the light is dimmer.
[11:31am] DSJ: He does so then!
[11:31am] LadyKatie: Sandra then takes the crystal and hands it to Hans. Evan is still useful, even if nobody can understand him.
[11:31am] DSJ: "…aw christ, could've let me know about the colors in here. And the bodies too, I guess."
[11:32am] Alivi: Hans can see again!
[11:32am] LadyKatie: She also goes up and whispers something in Hans' ear.
[11:32am] Aphex_: Mutter mutter grumble "…smells like sh- hm?" blink blink.
[11:34am] Aphex_: "Hm." He snaps his fingers near his ears.
[11:34am] Alivi: All the bodies. And a very bright room.
[11:35am] Alivi: He can still hear.
[11:36am] Aphex_: He still seems quite serious despite the whispered words. "Mm. Vhe shoultd keep mmovingk."
[11:37am] Alivi: the train seems to still be moving fast.
[11:37am] LadyKatie: She nods. "Alright, let's go. Now that everyone can see, we don't have that to worry about."
[11:38am] DSJ: "Yep."
[11:38am] Alivi: The blue crystal is still there but completely dark. Still pretty tho
[11:39am] LadyKatie: Sandra keeps a hold of it, because it may prove to be useful.
[11:39am] LadyKatie: Or at least can be studied by Evan later in the thaum lab.
[11:41am] Aphex_: "Ja, lass uns gehen. fick, dies ist seltsam."
[11:41am] Alivi: Everyone heading to #2?
[11:41am] LadyKatie: Guess so
[11:41am] Aphex_: Yeah. Leading the charge this time.
[11:42am] Alivi: When you enter #2 again very bright lights. The ghost doesn’t seem to be very present here. Everything looks normal save for the very very very hot area they are in
[11:43am] Alivi: huh…. the heat seems to be originating from the engine which would be the next car
[11:43am] LadyKatie: Good thing she left her jacket back in 3. :P
[11:43am] LadyKatie: Or is still holding onto it, not wearing it. I can't remember.

[11:50am] Aphex_: "Then now iss a goodt time to do so, Amahdeo."
[11:50am] LadyKatie: She hands the crystal to Evan.

[11:52am] Alivi: Agility. Hans’ shadow charges straight for the group. Evan’s shadow seems to chill in the back, Amadeo’s and Sandra’s seem to slowly approach the group. Player turn

[12:19pm] LadyKatie: "I don't know where they are. Evan, you build stuff all the time, why don't you go do it?"
[12:20pm] Aphex_: Hans stands around, a little overwhelmed about all this hearing stuff.
[12:20pm] Alivi: “I’m feeling a bit tired. All that magic and rituals have drained me. I’d be too much of a risk to be operating any heavy machinery."
[12:21pm] Alivi: Evan wipes his brow. “…Still interesting day, huh?”
[12:21pm] LadyKatie: "No more of a risk than I would be."
[12:21pm] DSJ: "I guess I'll get it done, then." Amadeo shrugs and heads that way

[12:26pm] LadyKatie: "[Something in his posture.]"
[12:26pm] Alivi: In the engine room there is clearly an overheated Engine that is speeding. It is extremely hot in here. A lot of things are broken and it seems that the systems are being overwhelmed.
[12:27pm] Alivi: “What are you doing?” Evan asks frowning as he watches them sign.
[12:27pm] SnoozleBee joined the chat room.

[12:34pm] Alivi: Once he is fully awake, he will help guide Evan into fully stopping the train. And with that things are over.
[12:35pm] Alivi: The team will stop and possibly rest/get treatment at the next station and will be escorted back to the site. With a pat on the backs for a job well-down
[12:35pm] Alivi: done*

7:21:47 PM <Fae> The ghost will suddenly find itself standing in a fortress mixed with a library, facing off against a mental representation of Evan.
7:22:19 PM <Alivi> The ghost looks around a bit alarmed. ~heh. Alright~
7:22:49 PM <Fae> A big smile spread over Evan's face. "Hey there." (been long enough to roll?)
7:22:56 PM <Alivi> yep
7:23:03 PM <Alivi> “…Hello."
7:23:58 PM <Fae> Books come swirling off of their shelves, filling the air around Evan and the ghost.
7:24:26 PM <Fae> "I want you to remember. I tried to talk. I gave you the chance to stop playing your game. I want you to remember that."
7:25:19 PM <Alivi> “Nice power grab. Shame it didn’t work. And maybe I don’t want a talk. Maybe I want to just fight. After all you are the ones being sent to kill me. Why talk with you?"
7:26:47 PM <Fae> "Oh. Oh no." Evan begins laughing. "I didn't come here to /kill/ you…"
7:27:17 PM <Fae> "I came to CATCH you!"
7:27:20 PM <Alivi> “Wait…what?” And then the control is broken
7:27:35 PM <Alivi> Evan has full possession of himself again
7:27:46 PM <Fae> The books release a thousand terrible memories that form a ccage around the ghost.
7:28:25 PM <Alivi> The ghost screams in a mixture of terror and rage.
