Psi-7 was notified of an instance of SCP-630 floating near Site-77, neutralization was authorized.
Three shows up on the beach, fully suited up. (Though he still unfortunately has no drill nor drill like device. Perhaps one day.)
Vieno takes a nice stroll down the beach, loaded down with munitions. How romantic.

She'll probably notice the huge guy with a diving helmet and a browning machine gun in one hand
"Moi!" She waves in the moonlight as she approaches.
There's a boat on the shoreline, with a static-emitting radio hitched to the bow. It's beached on the sand, with the moonlight glinting off the lazy waves as they lap at the shoreline. In the distance, silhouetted on the night sky, there is a small glacier floating around a hundred yards out.

"I assume that's our vessel."
«Radio check!» burbles a staticy voice over the set.
"Probably." Vieno looks out at the ice. "I thought it was too warm down here for those."
Three moseys over to the boat to answer the radio with a «Reading you loud and clear.»
«Alright, I'm taking in an agent injured by one of those fucking birds. You guys gotta go out there and melt that thing or push it back to sea!»
«It's a glacier and if you touch it yer infected and have to get urgent care to live. Birds and small things get overtaken and try t'peck yer eyes out or something like that. It's a real sore spot of a thing to take care of.»
Vieno blinks, but smiles and piles in the boat with a shrug. "Could be worse."
"For sure. Still, you'd think they'd deploy more agents than us for something so dire."
In the wooden boat, which is very large and could comfortably hold around 8 people, there are four oars, a flamethrower with a half-filled tank, and a burlap sack filled with metallic-sounding objects.
"… I think I would be better suited to wield that flamethrower, of the two of us."
"Mmm. Jealous." She shrugs and chambers a round in the submachine gun, patting its wide magazine. "I'll cover the skies, yes?"
That would be appreciated. Though, I suppose I'll have to row us out there first."
"Ah, shorthanded. Nothing new." Vieno looks in the burlap sack.
Three situates himself by a set of oars.
Strength to row!
DSJ: STR: 6 (4df+6=+, +, -, -)
Rowing out to sea, you can feel the gentle lapping of the sea by your boat. Your soon upon the glacier, 20 feet or so out. It's jet black and non-relective. Several birds are silhouetted along the top of it.
(forgot to hit enter)
"Do you think we should get closer?"
"Hmm, no. Flamethrower should have enough range. Besides, it's about hunting season. Would hate to scare the birds."
Vieno stands in the boat and aims at the birds before firing!
4df+6 BANG BANG
TheSpookanist: BANG BANG: 9 (4df+6=0, +, +, +)
The birds pop like ink balloons and you see something splatter into the water, followed by an icy crackling as the impacted seawater freezes.
"Hmm, the birds make more ice. Too bad they'll run out of birds."
"Well, in that case, I'll get to melting it. You are sure this isn't too far for the flamethrower, yes?"
"Yes, yes, should be close enough if it's not a piece of junk. What I wouldn't give to use one of those again. But I'll cover you."
"Thank you." Three picks up the flamethrower, and gets ready to melt the hell out of this ice.
ranged to aim in the darkness!

The jet of flame blasts into the darkness and, although you do not directly bathe the ice in flames, you can see in your light that there is a chunk of it already melted by the bloke before he retreated
"Hmm, maybe closer." She shrugs.
"That would help, yes." STR to paddle more?

Drawing nearer to the iceberg, you bump into a floating chunk of ice. There's a crunching, splintering noise.
"Hmm." Vieno looks down and shrugs. "Should melt it before we have to swim."
4df+4 RNG more ice melting?
DSJ: RNG more ice melting?: 4 (4df+4=+, +, -, -)
The flames lap over the mass and you can hear it crack and hiss. Bits begin sliding off into the water, which freezes and spits up in protest.
"We appear to be making some level of progress!"

The flamethrower begins bathing the ice in flames as before but soon peters out into nothingness.
"This is not going well."
"… Hmm. Pilot light out?" Vieno reaches into the sack and chucks one of the grenades within.
Without being armed or prepared, the grenade sails through the air, binks harmlessly off the ice and splashes down into the water, quickly sinking into oblivion.
"… Hmm." Vieno arms the next one before throwing it.
Strength to throw!

There's a tremendous flash and heat washes over your boat as moments later a wave crashes into the stern, sending the boat spinning out of control as the glacier collapses to be consumed by the sea!

"Hmm." Vieno takes out her rifle and looks through the scope. "We appear to be lost."
"Fortunately, I can walk back. I do not think you can, however. Hm. Do we have any rope?"
"Yes." Vieno reaches into her pack and pulls out - wow, a lot of rope. Somewhere around a hundred feet.
Who carries that much rope?
"Excellent. Tie it to me, and I should be able to pull us back to shore, granted we still don't know where that is."
"…..we are also still probably within radio range."
"I did not consider that earlier."
"I don't want to have to dry all my guns."

"Possibly better. I don't want to have to dry all my guns."
Vieno sits and pulls out the radio. "Moi, which way is land? We have a lighthouse or something? Big torch?"
"Fair point." Three tries the radio. «Hello, we are far off course. How can we identify the site again?»
After a few moments, you see a foglight illuminate from around 200 yards west of your position.
"Well, not bad." Vieno sits and starts a-rowin'.
As does Three!

With great determination and vigor, you make your way back to the beach. Passing the sinking remains of the ice, you can see a few bobbing bits of ice slowly melting in the water, and smell the sulfurous odor left by the grenade's explosive impact.
Soon enough you are at the beach.
"Well, we did adequately, wouldn't you say?"
"Good enough!" Vieno grins and claps her hand on Three's shoulder before he gets up, stomping back out onto the beach.
