00:50 dragonwielder Mickey is in the commons. He looks kind of like he is rethinking life itself. He sips his tea.
00:54 madness_ Jo lounges around in the commons, watching whatever's on the television. He can't understand most of it, but it captures his attention anyways. There's an occasional glance to Mickey, but nothing else.
01:00 dragonwielder He nods to Jo. "Been a bit…"
01:04 madness_ "Little bit more than a bit, heh. Two months, I think?"
01:05 dragonwielder "Yeah. How've you been?"
01:06 Nemi An Amelie doops into the commons, still looking fantastic! She scootches around the perimeter of the conversation, not wanting ot interrupt on her way to the coffeemaekr!
01:07 dragonwielder He nods to her.
01:07 madness_ "Alright enough, you?" Jo smiles at Amelie, giving a brisk wave and leaning on the arm of the chair he's sitting on.

01:08 dragonwielder "I'm…ok I guess. Carson woke up. So I'm happy about that."
01:09 Nemi "Allo!" Ami waves to the both of them with a tiny motion. "Oh- he's awake? That's wonderful news!"
01:10 Roget Perception, all
01:10 dragonwielder He nods, smiling a bit. "He went back to 19 for now to get a break. The only assignment he has there is to help with the rehabilitation of Lilith. Which he is more than happy to do."
01:10 madness_ 4df+4 PERC Jo nods. "Saw him off before he left. I'm glad he's alright."

01:11 Nemi Ami quietly fills her cup, looking away from the others for a moment as she adds some creamer and sugar.
01:12 dragonwielder Mickey sips his tea.
01:14 Roget You all hear a sound like a watch spring breaking in the distance.
01:14 dragonwielder "Anyone else hear that?"
01:14 Nemi Amelie looks up a moment but doesn't much think of it. "Hm? Oh, ah, I suppose.."
01:14 madness_ "How's the new body treating you, Miss Patchett?" Jo grins over at Amelie, then turns his head in the direction of said break. ".. what was that?"
01:15 Nemi Ami sticks her tongue out at Jo. "Wonderfully, thanks- ah, I don't know?"
01:15 Roget Jo, roll perception again
01:16 madness_ 4df+4 PERC!
01:16 Glacon madness_: PERC!: 4 (4df+4=+, -, +, -)
01:17 Roget You hear the site's main exit hatch shut.
01:20 madness_ Jo stands and peers onward before going to check it out! "Huh. The exit hatch just shut. Think I'm going to see what's that all about." He scratches the back of his head as he walks over to the hatch!
01:21 dragonwielder Mickey stands up as well. "I'll go too."
01:22 dragonwielder He currently has the sword, a the Lee enfield slung over his shoulder….and is that a can of deodorant and a lighter?
01:23 Roget You make your way out to the entrance. Most of the guards her are at their posts, but a few of them are standing around and looking at the main door. The door itself is shut, with all locking and sealing mechanisms activated.
01:24 dragonwielder He speaks to one of them. "Are things ok?"
01:24 madness_ Jo's only got the pistol, a spare mag, and his knife. Utility-wise, there's the radio and flashlight. "Something wrong with the door?"
01:24 Nemi Ami blinks, and mves to follow Jo, of course!
01:24 Nemi Ami's unarmed. No light, no radio, no weapons. She looks worried!
01:25 Roget One of the agents looks over to them, with an anxious expression. "Well, it's fine, it's just, uh, been remotely shut. Haven't gotten any word on why, yet."
01:26 dragonwielder "So we're trapped?"
01:27 Nemi "I mean, there are other routes.."
01:27 Nemi Amelie is concerned! And she knows she lacks clearance to do much.
01:27 dragonwielder "I could make one" :| Mickey no.
01:27 Roget "I hope we're not trapped. That would suck."
01:27 TheRaven Will wanders over to the commons and gets a coffee.
01:28 Roget "Hey, could one of you guys go and see if you can find anything out?"
01:28 dragonwielder "Where would we go to do that?"
01:28 madness_ "Well, I'm sure there's a good reason for it.. But, yeah sure. Where do you need us to go?"
01:28 Roget Several of the agents look at them expectantly.
01:29 Nemi "I um- ano, where should we go?"
01:29 Nemi Slim Slav girl in a white dress, no weapons, definitely the person to send.
01:29 Roget One of them pauses and strokes a bushy moustache. "Well, I reckon if you checked containment, ye could see if it's a breach of some sort. Or go see if it's some kinda test that needs the entrance shut."
01:29 Roget "S'the only two places I can think of.
01:29 Roget "
01:30 dragonwielder "Containment first I guess."
01:31 Nemi Ami nods nervously. ".. alright.. Containment then labs.."
01:31 dragonwielder "Alright." He begins leading the way to containment.
01:32 Nemi Zoom!
01:32 madness_ Jo goes along!
01:55 * Fae is now known as SleepyFae
02:09 *** TheRaven quit (Quit: Sail away where no ball and chain can keep us from the roarin' waves, together undivided but forever we'll be free!)
02:25 DiePotato An Artyom Elkin in the meantime has just woken up from his sleeping time and is currently pulling on a suit jacket and sliding rounds into a magazine while he heads for Containment.
02:25 DiePotato Damn things never letting him sleep.
01:32 dragonwielder Mickey leads the group into containment.
01:33 Roget Security is active in containment. The main entrance has been locked down and fortified. It doesn't look like anyone is going down, though, they're all standing around waiting. Regal is walking around looking irritated.
01:33 dragonwielder "Is everything ok?"
01:33 Nemi Amelie, clearly nervous, remains near Jo with the little gang!
01:33 madness_ ".. Sir, do you mind us asking what's going on?" Jo steps up to Regal with a confused look on his face.
01:33 dragonwielder He's frowning.
01:34 madness_ telling*
01:36 Roget "Some sort of ballistic commotion, from what I've gathered." Regal crosses his arms, looking snooty. "I've not got a clear confirmation on exactly what, though."
01:37 dragonwielder "Ballistic?"
01:37 Nemi "Where from, Professor Regal?" Ami asks, firmly.
01:41 Roget "Well, I suppose it must be the testing labs." Regal points down a hall. "I heard a noise from down that way not too long ago… then the doors started slamming."
01:41 Nemi Ami nods nervously and gestures to the other two. "Let's go check it out!"
01:42 dragonwielder He nods. "Let's. What sort of sound was it? Explosion?"
01:43 Roget "Oh, no, nothing that dramatic. More of a lound sort of, uh *ping* sort of noise." Regal unfolds and refolds his arms. "It was a pretty queer sort of sound."
01:44 dragonwielder He nods. "We'll tell you what we find."
01:44 Roget Regal nods back. "Don't be getting yourselves killed if it's a bad one, now."
01:45 dragonwielder He nods.
01:45 madness_ Jo frowns a bit, tilting his head. "We'll be fine." He's significantly less tense when the sound generated is revealed to be nothing major. Still on guard, however.
01:45 dragonwielder "Let's go team." Mickey leads the way to the labs.
01:46 Nemi Ami scurries after!
01:47 Roget All of the labs have steel security barricades blocking access to them. There are red lights on over all of them. No audible alarm, but all of the labs are on lockdown. The testing facility entrance is barricaded doubly, and there are about a dozen agents in position around it with odd-looking blunderbuss devices.
01:47 dragonwielder "What is going on?" He speaks to one of them.
01:47 Nemi Ami approaches, made more nervous by the blunderbusses!
01:48 Roget The agent snaps their head to look at Mickey. "Get down! Something's gone wrong in there!"
01:49 Roget Another agent motions for them to come behind some sandbags.
01:49 Nemi Ami hurries low and darts behind the baggage!
01:49 madness_ ".. what are those?" Jo peers at the blunderbuss objects before taking heed of the warnings and heading to duck behind the sandbags!
01:50 dragonwielder He hurriedly slides into the cover of the sandbags, almost as if by complete and utter instinct.
01:52 Roget Once you are settled behind the sandbags, you all hear a rhythmic noise from the other side of the door. It's muffled, and sounds like a metal spoon bouncing on a metal object. After a few minutes, there's a loud *PANG* and a dent appears in the door. All of the agents aim their weapons at the door.
01:52 dragonwielder "……"
01:53 Nemi Ami cringes momentarily.
01:53 dragonwielder Mickey unslings the enfield.
01:54 madness_ He flinches. "That doesn't sound like a *plink* at all." Jo peers over the sandbags for a brief moment, before concluding that that's probably a bad idea! So then he sinks back down to take his pistol out of his holster, for whatever good that'd do.
01:55 * Fae is now known as SleepyFae
01:55 Roget There's another loud *PING* as a larger dent appears in the door. Hot steam from a pneumatic lock starts hissing out from the door.
01:55 dragonwielder ~AM I GOING TO HAVE TO GET OUT THE FIRE AGAIN?~
01:56 Nemi Amelie eeps and shrinks down again.
01:56 dragonwielder Mickey shakes the can of deodorant.
01:57 madness_ Jo frowns further, before placing a reassuring hand on Amelie's shoulder and giving her an equally reassuring smile. He hopes that it might do some good.
01:59 dragonwielder "Things'll be fine." He tries to be reassuring as well.
01:59 Roget More agents run up and start putting up some kind of screen in front of the door. They dive to the ground as the door endures another *KER-PING* induced-dent, then resume working when it becomes apparent it didn't breach yet.
02:00 dragonwielder ~diving to the ground…means pressure explosion instead of monster. They would have aimed their guns if it was a monster of some sort….~
02:00 Nemi "Agent Blythe-" Ami calls to one of the blunderbusiers. "What were they /testing/ in there?"
02:01 dragonwielder ~I think~
02:01 dragonwielder Can Mickey roll his ENG perk to analyze for explosion?
02:01 Roget "Some kind of fucking mattress, miss, I really can't explain why this is happening right now!" The guy sounds really worried and pissed at the same time.
02:03 Nemi Amelie nods and remains crouched!
02:04 Roget Mickey, this doesn't sound like an explosion!
02:05 Roget Everybody roll agility!!!!

02:12 Glacon Nemi: Yeek!: 0 (4df+4=-, -, -, -)
02:12 dragonwielder ;-;
02:16 Roget In the second before the agents begin blazing their weapons, Jo and Mickey see what looks to be a small, metallic object flying through the air. Amelie, one of the pneumatic pipes in the walls connected to the doors springs open from the backdraft pressure from the door bursting and sprays steam at you, rendering you temporarily(?) blinded!
02:18 Nemi Amelie recoils with a scream, bringing her hands up to try to shield her eyes. for whatever good it's done.
02:19 Roget *BLAMMO!* smoke and fire fill the room as a baker's dozen's worth of weapons fire all at once, and instantly the temperature drops by about thirty degrees and white smoke and ice fill up the entire room.
02:20 dragonwielder Mickey gets out a handkerchief and gives it to Amelie. "Wipe your eyes."
02:20 Nemi She's kind of busy screaming and scrabbling about on the floor, Mickey.
02:21 dragonwielder Oh, I didn't see that part described. He goes to help wipe her eyes, or do whatever he can do if that won't work!
02:22 Nemi She'll likely swing her hands wildly at feeling something foreign dabbing at them, fighting out of pain and panic more than anything. Blinded? Whyyy?
02:23 madness_ Jo shivers. He's in lighter clothes than normal and beginning to regret that decision. First things first, however! Attend to the screaming Czech on the floor! "Amelie!" At least the burns are soothed by this drop in temperature. Jo's hands hold onto her shoulders. "You see what happened to her?"
02:24 dragonwielder "Amelie. Just stay still, I'll try to get the stuff out of your eyes if I can."
02:24 Roget An object flies past you, hitting the floor and sending ice fragments flying everywhere. The agents chase after it, thundering past you guys. The culprit of the commotion is some kind of high-momentum piece of metal that's bouncing off the walls, although it's slowed down after they shot ice at it.
02:24 dragonwielder Mickey shields himself from the shards.
02:24 dragonwielder "What the hell?"
02:25 Nemi She's not really listening, though Jo's at least soothed her slightly so she's not thrashing around and screaming so much. Now it's mostly sobbing and whimpers in Czech. Mickey could.. Possibly dab at her eyes? Who knows? Steam burns are terrible.
02:26 dragonwielder He tries so. Very softly, he puts on some of the cold water from his canteen first though.
02:27 DiePotato Arty strides on down to Containment pissed off and ready to deal with whatever is even happening. About how he always is.
02:27 madness_ "Fuck if I know! Let's get her to medical! Amelie, can you stand?" Jo gently shakes her shoulders, but keeps an eye on… whatever that might have been.
02:28 Roget Arty, agility!
02:28 DiePotato 4df+6 (AGI)
02:28 Glacon DiePotato: (AGI): 8 (4df+6=-, +, +, +)
02:28 Roget 4df+6
02:28 Glacon Roget: 7 (4df+6=0, +, 0, 0)
02:28 Nemi "Nnnne ne ne ne- I can't see I CAN'T SEE I can't see I can't see-"
02:29 dragonwielder "She needs ice. Let's get her to medical now. That stupid metal shit can wait."
02:29 Roget You just barely manage to leap out of the way as a high-speed ballilstic projectile flies down the hallway, bouncing off every wall, ceiling, floor and door. It swiftly passes you, ping-ponging further into the facility.
02:29 dragonwielder He begins supporting her, ready to head to medical.
02:30 DiePotato Artyom does so out of pure reflex and he blinks a few times as he realizes what just happened.
02:30 DiePotato He luckily flattened himself against a flat plane very quickly.
02:30 Nemi Ami basically has to be carried!
02:30 Roget Ami, after a few minutes you start seeing light and some shapes again.
02:30 DiePotato "Fucking. Hate. This job." Artyom strides on after the spring.
02:31 * LadyKatie quit (Quit: Connection closed for inactivity)
02:31 dragonwielder He carries her then. Off to medical.
02:31 madness_ Jo'll probably pick her up, then. "Just keep calm. Everything's going to be fine, Amelie."
02:32 dragonwielder Oh, Jo has it handle then.
02:32 Nemi "Wait- wait, wait I can- I can kind of see kind of it's- guaa.." She kinda flops in Jo's arms.
02:33 Roget Artyom, it's pinged its way into a lab and you can hear a shit-ton of glass being broken.
02:33 dragonwielder "Hurry. Don't know what will happen if we don't get anything on that." He waits for Jo to start heading to medical.
02:34 madness_ Jo's headed that way! "You can see?" He says a few things in Japanese, sounding relieved. And onwards towards medical!
02:35 dragonwielder Mickey goes with!
02:35 DiePotato Artyom calmly strides over, and looks for the release for the emergency barriers to said lab. His current line of thinking is to trap the thing to prevent it from doing any further damage.
02:35 Nemi "No- no not- I can see light maybe-"
02:36 Roget It actually looks like the emergency barrier for this door is malfunctioning, all of the other security barricades have already been deployed.
02:36 Roget *glass breaking intensifies*
02:37 Roget Amelie, you blink a few times and everything is still really blurry but color is kind of there maybe?
02:38 DiePotato Well. That's just dandy. Time for Plan B. Arty digs out his radio. <Yes, this is Elkin and fucking loud as fuck and fast as fuck thing is currently stuck in one of the Science labs of Fourth floor. Can someone get me a long steel pipe that has one end welded shut along with man who does welding please. And also few dozen strong men.>
02:39 Roget Agility! It's coming right at you!
02:39 DiePotato 4df+6 (AGI) Arty drops his radio as soon as he sees it coming and starts to twist.
02:39 Glacon DiePotato: (AGI) Arty drops his radio as soon as he sees it coming and starts to twist.: 9 (4df+6=+, 0, +, +)
02:40 Roget 4df+7 BULLLEEEEET
02:40 Glacon Roget: BULLLEEEEET: 4 (4df+7=-, -, 0, -)
02:41 Roget At the last moment it catches on the doorframe and goes spinning out into the hall, losing a good chunk of its momentum. It's now kind of hopping around on the ground in three-foot leaps, and for the first time you confirm your suspicions that the object is a spring.
02:42 DiePotato Artyom stands back up slowly, bends down to pick up his radio, and clicks the receiver again. <Thing has lost momentum, moving to intercept.>
02:42 DiePotato <Still want pipe and strong men.>
02:42 DiePotato Arty stows his radio and jogs after the spring.
02:43 DiePotato ~Cannot let it regain speed.~
02:43 Roget <You've already got agents on location, don't you? Have they been disabled?> The agents in question have taken cover on the other side of the sandbags and are peering over at the spring.
02:44 DiePotato <They have been disabled by being bitches.>
02:45 Roget <Confirmed. Sending additional reinforcements.>
02:45 DiePotato Arty yells at them in Russian before switching to a more easily understood language. "Hey! Fuckers! Go do your fucking job and get me a pillow or a blanket!"
02:46 DiePotato He pulls his suit jacket off, tosses it to the side, and continues following after the spring. He's trying to time it correctly.
02:47 Roget One of them tosses you a black back with a drawstring that seals from behind the sandbags.
02:48 Roget It lands about halfway between them and the spring.
02:48 DiePotato "…Real fucking helpful you bastards."
02:48 DiePotato Artyom rolls his eyes and goes to retrieve the bag, going around the spring.
02:49 Roget One of them slowly begins advancing on it. "Sorry… it's just… very unpredictable."
02:49 DiePotato "Being bitch does not decrease chance that it will fuck you."
02:50 DiePotato He snatches up the bag and starts taking deep breaths. Arty flaps the bag a few times to make sure it's fully opened up and he trails close behind the spring.
02:51 Roget The rest of the agents come out, and a few of them open bags to try and help Artyom if he misses. One of them nods to Artyom in a sort of "sorry we were bitches" kind of way.
02:53 Roget Arty, agi to snatch it.
02:53 DiePotato Arty takes one last deep breath. And then he licks his lips, times the rebound on the spring, and sprints forwards. He'll dive through the air as it arcs upwards, and twist as he does so he lands sliding on his back with the bag open in both hands above him.
02:53 DiePotato 4df+6 (AGI) WAH
02:53 Glacon DiePotato: (AGI) WAH: 9 (4df+6=+, +, 0, +)
02:55 Roget 4df+4
02:55 Glacon Roget: 4 (4df+4=0, 0, +, -)
02:55 Roget You sweep it into the bag, where it bounces its way around more quickly, making the bag launch itself around vigorously. Strength to hold onto it.

02:57 DiePotato "HELP ME!"
02:58 Roget You successfully hang on! The other agents raise, aim, and fire their large blunderbusses at the bag. Arty, instantly all of your clothes and equipment and frozen rigidly with ice, and the temperature around you drops by about thirty degrees in a few seconds. Brrrr.
02:58 Roget The spring stops moving!
02:58 DiePotato Artyom's fine with this he's a fucking ice zombie most of the time. He stands back up, unphased and dusts frost off of him.
02:59 Roget A scientist climbs over the disabled and destroyed security door and, after a moment, makes his way down the hall past the agents towards Artyom. "Oh, thank goodness, looks like the situation is under control?"
03:00 DiePotato "Ano. It is handled." Arty leans back and forth and his clothing crackles as the ice snaps
03:01 Roget "It's the damndest thing. We found this mattress, and all it did was make jumping on it twice as high. The Director funded a battery of tests, but… then it got kinda weird."
03:01 Roget The guy scratches his head.
03:02 DiePotato "… Honestly do nog care much. Just make sure it goes in cell. Have a nice evening." Arty crackles as he walks away and heads for Medical to get an ibuprofen for his headache.

03:03 Roget "Because you're with those Psi-7 fooooolks!"
