9:22 PM <DSJ> *"
9:23 PM <Fae> Growling continues to emanate from Muirenn.
9:24 PM <Alivi> Jo and Hans you manage to narrowly avoid spiders having come up behind you. Hans the one nearest to you has it’s fangs bared. These spiders are black with a strange white and green face-like mark on their abdomens. The one nearest to Hans is about the size of a german shepard. The one near Jo is about the size of a shiba inu
9:24 PM <Fae> She scans around for more prey.
9:24 PM <madness_> "There's definitely more of them!"
9:24 PM <Fae> PC turn?
9:24 PM <Alivi> yep
9:24 PM <madness_> Jo fires his full clip into the one near him!

9:25 PM <Fae> 4df+8 Muirenn lunges at one of the spiders and unloads a few bullets into it at point blank.
9:25 PM <Glacon> Fae: Muirenn lunges at one of the spiders and unloads a few bullets into it at point blank.: 8 (4df+8=0, +, 0, -)
9:25 PM <Fae> Snarling as she does so.
9:25 PM <Alivi> Which one murienn

9:26 PM <Fae> The big one
9:26 PM <Fae> For those watching, Muirenn is slightly terrifying at the moment.
9:27 PM <Alivi> The spider nearest to Hans staggers as it is hit. As Hans tries to stomp it it lunges intending to bite!
9:28 PM <Alivi> Jo your spider shrieks and lunges at you again.
9:28 PM <Aphex_> Hans, having similar capacity for such violence- if not more- doesn't flinch. He does, however, go back to trying to pummel the spider.
9:28 PM <Alivi> Pdef to see if you can avoid this or agility to get away.
9:29 PM <Aphex_> 4df+5 (PDEF) well shit
9:29 PM <Glacon> Aphex_: (PDEF) well shit: 9 (4df+5=+, +, +, +)
9:29 PM <Fae> Does Muirenn point-blank unloading a clip into either do anything?
9:29 PM <Aphex_> …o…kay.
9:30 PM <Alivi> (yes she has severly damaged one of the spiders which was going to attack Hans)
9:30 PM <Alivi> As the spider rushes Hans a good boot to the head seems to do it and bamn. Dead Spider. You show em Hans
9:31 PM <madness_> 4df+6 WOOPS AGILITY
9:31 PM <Glacon> madness_: WOOPS AGILITY: 6 (4df+6=+, +, -, -)
9:31 PM <Aphex_> Poont goes the spidder.
9:32 PM <Alivi> 4df+5
9:32 PM <Glacon> Alivi: 9 (4df+5=+, +, +, +)
9:32 PM <madness_> WELL SHIT
9:33 PM <Alivi> There is a searing pain as the spider bites down on your leg. The fangs piercing the fabric.
9:33 PM <Fae> (can't he also roll pdef?)
9:33 PM <Alivi> he can
9:34 PM <madness_> 4df+5 WELL SHIT
9:34 PM <Glacon> madness_: WELL SHIT: 6 (4df+5=+, +, -, 0)
9:34 PM <Alivi> -1.5 health
9:34 PM <madness_> Jo yells out in pain, then makes to repeatedly stab the spider in the face.
9:35 PM <madness_> 4df+6 FUK YO FACE
9:35 PM <Glacon> madness_: FUK YO FACE: 7 (4df+6=+, 0, +, -)
9:35 PM <Alivi> 4df+3
9:35 PM <Glacon> Alivi: -1 (4df+3=-, -, -, -)
9:35 PM <madness_> YEAH THAT'S RIGHT
9:35 PM <Alivi> Its dead. Like so dead.
9:35 PM <Fae> 4df+8 Muirenn leaps on top of her spider prey and savagely unloads into its head, aiding jo
9:35 PM <Glacon> Fae: Muirenn leaps on top of her spider prey and savagely unloads into its head, aiding jo: 6 (4df+8=-, 0, 0, -)
9:35 PM <Alivi> Murienn that spider is wrecked.
9:36 PM <madness_> Jo limps up to standing, holding onto his leg and breathing heavy. ".. /FUCK/."
9:36 PM <Fae> There's a kind of animal intensity in Muirenn's eyes. After all spiders are dead, it fades and her body language shifts back to something a little more natural and human-looking.
9:37 PM <Aphex_> "…" Hans debates knocking Jo the hell out and amputating his leg on the spot. But he realizes that this is stupid.
9:37 PM <Fae> That may have been mildly terrifying to watch.
9:37 PM <Alivi> All the spiders are indeed. Dead. One is shot to pieces, its legs all curled up. One is squished by a boot to the head. The other was stabbed and shot.
9:38 PM <madness_> Jo's more focused on his leg than anything. He starts ripping the fabric around his leg to see if there are any noticeable effects and to see if the bleeding's bad.
9:38 PM <Fae> Muirenn tears off some fabric and ties Jo's leg.
9:38 PM <Alivi> There isn’t much blood other than where the fangs entered. The bite is inflamed. Hot to the touch and senstivie.
9:38 PM <Alivi> sensitive*
9:38 PM <Fae> Can Muirenn use animal science to check for poison?
9:38 PM <Alivi> yep
9:38 PM <Fae> 4df+8 Science
9:38 PM <Aphex_> "…Yhou cann vhalk, ja?"
9:38 PM <Glacon> Fae: Science: 6 (4df+8=0, -, -, 0)
9:39 PM <DSJ> "Right, then. Well, we at least know our enemy, now."
9:39 PM <Fae> "… Blood venom. We need to get you back to the site."
9:40 PM <madness_> "Yeah, yeah, I can walk and.. what's that?"
9:40 PM <Fae> Muirenn heads to the first one she double tapped and begins methodically using her knife to gut it. She might be able to use that to drag jo back up the cliff. "The spiders were venomous. You blood won't clot up right."
9:41 PM <Fae> redact that bit about coagulation
9:41 PM <Fae> "You need medical treatment." She keeps removing spider guts.
9:41 PM <Aphex_> "……can juust c-caarry."
9:41 PM <DSJ> "Yes, we really could just carry him if need be."
9:42 PM <Alivi> There seems to be loud laughter that echoes through the room.
9:42 PM <madness_> "Shit." Jo tries to stand!
9:42 PM <DSJ> "Besides, there's no point in heading back if we have no idea what do do about this pest problem."
9:42 PM <Alivi> It comes from the right tunnel
9:42 PM <Fae> Muirenn freezes upon hearing the laughter.
9:42 PM <Aphex_> "…Jjo?" He gestures. What laughter?
9:43 PM <Alivi> Jo you can stand. Hurts like a bitch tho
9:43 PM <DSJ> "Well, that'd be the laughter we heard about."
9:43 PM <Fae> "Fine, but we're getting you help the first thing back." She doesn't sound happy, but she's not gonna fight this.
9:44 PM <DSJ> "That's standard operating procedure, after all."
9:44 PM <madness_> ".. So, what?" He winces as he takes a step forward. ".. Let's see what the laughter has to say."
9:44 PM <DSJ> "I could do with a joke right now." Joseph says, heading to the right!
9:44 PM <Fae> Muirenn loads a new clip into her gun and picks up the spider shell, ready to morph if necessary.
9:45 PM <Aphex_> ~Stubborn ass…~ Hans cracks his knuckles, still ready to pick Jo up at a moment's notice.
9:46 PM <Fae> Muirenn's ready to help him.
9:46 PM <madness_> Jo also loads in a new clip. He'd be grateful for Hans' way of thinking if he knew! The man will limp over after the others, trying not to focus on the pain.
9:47 PM <Aphex_> Walk walk.
9:47 PM <Fae> Muirenn braces him up.
9:47 PM <DSJ> "So, what's so funny, eh?" Joseph calls out into the darkness.
9:48 PM <Alivi> there is no answer. Perception
9:48 PM <DSJ> 4df+4 perc
9:48 PM <Glacon> DSJ: perc: 2 (4df+4=0, -, 0, -)
9:48 PM <Fae> 4df+4
9:48 PM <Glacon> Fae: 6 (4df+4=+, +, +, -)
9:48 PM <Alivi> Dont hear nothing. Dont see nuthin Well other than rocks, dirt, weird stuff.
9:49 PM <Alivi> Murienn you notice something on the walls of this tunnel
9:49 PM <madness_> 4df+4 PERC
9:49 PM <Glacon> madness_: PERC: 5 (4df+4=0, +, -, +)
9:49 PM <Alivi> Jo you notice the same
9:49 PM <Fae> She raises her pistol
9:49 PM <Fae> then lowers it again on seeing it is just a rock
9:50 PM <madness_> Jo shines a light on the rock, limping towards it.
9:50 PM <Fae> she skitters over and looks at it.
9:50 PM <Alivi> There seems to be some strange letters. Jo they look kinda familiar.
9:50 PM <Fae> "Great. Chicken scratch."
9:51 PM <Fae> 4df+4 ACAD, though, does any of this remind muirenn of any sort of myth?
9:51 PM <Glacon> Fae: ACAD, though, does any of this remind muirenn of any sort of myth?: 5 (4df+4=0, +, 0, 0)
9:51 PM <madness_> "No, no.. Not chicken scratch." Jo tries to make out some words from them, squinting.
9:51 PM ↔ DSJ nipped out
9:54 PM <madness_> ".. one.. hundred.. feet.. face.. none? What?"
9:56 PM <Fae> 4df+6 ANIMAL KNOWLEDGE
9:56 PM <Glacon> Fae: ANIMAL KNOWLEDGE: 7 (4df+6=-, 0, +, +)
9:57 PM <Aphex_> More standing guard.
9:57 PM <Fae> "Centipede."
10:01 PM <Alivi> Jo
10:03 PM <Alivi> Jo’s body siezes up and he falls having lost conciousness.
10:03 PM <Fae> "Oh for-" Muirenn catches him.
10:03 PM <Aphex_> Ahaha nah, fuck that. Hans jogs over to pick him up.
10:04 PM <DSJ> "… I do hope he doesn't suffer anything long-term from that."
10:04 PM <Fae> Muirenn grumbles.
10:05 PM <Aphex_> "Vhe arre leaffingk. Nnow." The German more than likely just throws Jo over his shoulders in a fireman's carry.
10:05 PM <Alivi> Murienn he is burning up.
10:05 PM <Fae> Muirenn nods. "You can find the way back?"
10:05 PM <Alivi> Hans you can feel that too
10:06 PM <DSJ> "I wish you luck in that, but I'm not leaving until I find some tangible solution to this mess." Joseph says, pressing onwards
10:06 PM <Aphex_> He remains quiet on that one. ~Shit… Fever of some kind, perhaps…~ Can he find some way back?
10:07 PM <Alivi> It’s incredibly hard…. And they did fall a while back… it’s going to be difficult. But you might be able to manage. Joseph you enter the tunnel with the laughter?
10:07 PM <Fae> "Here." Muirenn makes a copy of the directions and hands it ti Hans.
10:07 PM <DSJ> Yep!
10:08 PM <Alivi> Joseph as you enter the tunnel you notice it is an incredibly large room…there seems to be some tunnel burrowed leading upwards.
10:08 PM <Aphex_> …He'll do what he has to. For safety's sake.
10:08 PM <Fae> To Hans "Do you want help, or should I make sure he doesn't die." She jerks a thumb after Joseph.
10:09 PM <DSJ> "I take it this is your lair, then?" Joseph calls out into the darkness. "Because it's rather poorly lit and decorated, if it is."
10:09 PM <Aphex_> He nods his head to Joseph's direction. "……vhill trry to get baack aas quvickly aas possible."
10:09 PM <Fae> She nods, wishes him luck, and follows Joseph.
10:09 PM <Alivi> there is no answer.
10:10 PM <Fae> Muirenn catches up with him and keeps her eyes peeled.
10:10 PM <DSJ> 4df+8 PERC+NB Joseph carefully looks around the cave for spoiders
10:10 PM <Alivi> Murienn if you want to- you can do an animal sense roll. Joseph you can roll perception or if you feel like science and academics could help here roll that.
10:10 PM <Glacon> DSJ: PERC+NB Joseph carefully looks around the cave for spoiders: 8 (4df+8=+, -, +, -)
10:10 PM <Alivi> There are no spiders.
10:11 PM <DSJ> "Hm."
10:11 PM <Fae> "Mind looking away for a minute?"
10:11 PM <DSJ> 4df+6 ACD What is here, then?
10:11 PM <Glacon> DSJ: ACD What is here, then?: 6 (4df+6=-, 0, 0, +)
10:11 PM <Alivi> Butttttt that tunnel- that was freshly made
10:12 PM <Fae> Assuming he does, she speed-strips, puts the clothes in her bag, and becomes a giant spider.
10:12 PM <Fae> 4df+4 Requesting spider perc bonus.
10:12 PM <Glacon> Fae: Requesting spider perc bonus.: 6 (4df+4=-, +, +, +)
10:12 PM <DSJ> "Aha, so that's where you are, and- you know, you ought to alert a fellow of your arachnic tendencies before indulging in them."
10:13 PM <Fae> She makes a hissing laughter sound.
10:13 PM <DSJ> Joseph heads towards the new tunnel, pistol drawn and wit, arguably sharp.
10:14 PM <Fae> Muirenn hesitates, then follows.
10:15 PM <Alivi> It seems to lead upwards
10:15 PM <Fae> She keeps her spider-senses open for danger.
10:15 PM <DSJ> He keeps his professor senses out for danger
10:17 PM <Alivi> As you ascend you see daylight!
10:17 PM <DSJ> "Well, well well, an escape tunnel, perhaps?"
10:17 PM <Fae> Muirenn changes back and stumbles into her clothes quickly on the way out,
10:18 PM <Alivi> They emerge in the woods… Murienn might recgonize it as pretty far from the site. But still walking distance is ok. There are 2 bodies in the distance.
10:18 PM ⇐ Aphex_ and LadyKatie quit
10:18 PM <DSJ> Joseph tentatively approaches the bodies
10:20 PM <Alivi> Both have Foundation Issed Security uniforms
10:20 PM <Alivi> issued*
10:20 PM <DSJ> "Damn. Looks like it got out, I suppose we should alert the site and turn in our reports, yes?."
10:21 PM <Alivi> One seems to be breathing. The other not. The one who is not breathing is facedown on the ground
10:21 PM <Fae> "Oh no." Did spiders get them, or was it the centipede?
10:21 PM <Fae> She tries to help the breathing one.
10:21 PM <Alivi> None seem to have any marks. The breathing one seems to have suffered a lot of blunt force trauma.
10:21 PM <Fae> probably centipede, then
10:22 PM <Alivi> probably. That’s a safe call.
10:22 PM <Fae> She tries to stabilize him, and check if there's a way to save the other one.
10:22 PM <Alivi> does she turn the non-breathing one around?
10:22 PM <Fae> Yes.
10:22 PM <Alivi> Blunt force trauma dude is out like a light. But at least he seems stabalized.
10:22 PM <DSJ> Joseph cautiously looks around
10:23 PM <Fae> Can non-breathing be resuscitated?
10:23 PM <Alivi> Not really- non-breathing doesn’t have a face.
10:23 PM <Fae> Eugh.
10:23 PM <Alivi> No mouth. No eyes. No nose. Just. Blank.
10:23 PM <Fae> "…Damn it."
10:24 PM <DSJ> "… hm."
10:24 PM <Alivi> breathing guy probably needs to be taken back to the site
10:24 PM <Alivi> Dead guy should probably be reported
10:25 PM <Fae> "Yeah, let's get these two back to the site and fill out the reports. Then I'm breaking out my hunting gear."
10:25 PM <DSJ> "And I'll be reading up on centipedes because I'm a dreadful hunter."
10:27 PM <Fae> DSJ, that kind of intense hunter look is back. The effect is a bit spooky.
10:27 PM <DSJ> Joseph's a bit too sane to really be bothered by it.
10:27 PM <Alivi> Annnnnnd thats gonna be a wrap as you return back
10:27 PM <Fae> Something about the body language and the focus of the eyes not quite being right for a human…
