[2017-01-28 21:25:09] <Fae> Evan reports.
[2017-01-28 21:29:34] <Prior> Lacey is here!
[2017-01-28 21:29:49] <Fae> Evon waves to Lacey.

[2017-01-28 21:30:09] <Hankolijo> As is the norm, you are met in the briefing room by a British man wearing a pale gr- Nevermind, he's dressed in pajamas. "Psi-7, yea?" he asks once everyone's arrived. He hands out files!
[2017-01-28 21:30:14] <Hankolijo> "…Awful lot of you, huh."
[2017-01-28 21:30:24] <Fae> "Yup." He reads.
[2017-01-28 21:30:40] <Fae> He was very bummed to hear about Parker from Joseph.
[2017-01-28 21:30:45] <Prior> Lacey waves to Evan and takes a file. "I'm sure everybody is just busy."
[2017-01-28 21:30:53] <Hankolijo> "Right then, today you'll be heading to Egypt. You'll be heading there by ship, a GOC one carrying both GOC and Foundation assets. It'll be waiting for you down at the docks. You'll arrive in Alexandria, where you'll meet up with Valenti's men and head to Cairo."
[2017-01-28 21:31:00] <Hankolijo> The files, as always, contain a brief overlook on Cairo and Egypt as a whole, but apparently no more than on a tourist map's level. It mentions that any additional details will be provided when the team arrives, though it mentions that Samuel's men have not yet found THE CREATOR in Egypt, and Psi-7 will be aiding in locating him.
[2017-01-28 21:31:48] <Hankolijo> It also mentions that you will, as always, be taking the artifacts from the previous missions with you: A cross which indicates presence of other artifacts and glows with a bright light only seen by its wielder when near TC; A gold bracelet that grants the wearer an aura of protection; A sword which allows for its wielder to strike quicker, as well as being
[2017-01-28 21:31:48] <Hankolijo> capable of striking when not wielded.
[2017-01-28 21:32:23] <Fae> What about the cross?

[2017-01-28 21:36:23] <Fae> He shakes his head. "I can only carry one at a time, but the sword floats. Take it and the bracelet. I'll take the cross."
[2017-01-28 21:36:39] <Hankolijo> The artifacts will be given to folks at the docks!
[2017-01-28 21:36:51] <Fae> He gets his vamp-hunting kit together, along with his lighter and WMD, and picks up the cross.
[2017-01-28 21:37:49] <Prior> Lacey takes the bracelet when they're presented then, and has the sword follow her or however that works.
[2017-01-28 21:38:18] <Prior> Lacey is now dressed in her combat gear and wearing her everpresent backpack as she waits at the docks.
[2017-01-28 21:39:42] <Hankolijo> Once you arrive at the docks, it's quite easy to spot the ship that will be taking you to Egypt. (http://cruiselinehistory.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/SACRAMENTO1945.jpg) GOC soldiers are idling around on board, a couple of them playing cards on deck, meanwhile the crew is making the final preparations to set off.
[2017-01-28 21:39:59] <Fae> Evan boards.
[2017-01-28 21:40:35] <Hankolijo> And Lacey, you're informed that you can only pick up one artifact at the time. And do have the sword float behind you, you need to first pick it up, too. Oddly enough, you can't take hold of the bracelet when it's doing so, either.
[2017-01-28 21:40:48] <Prior> Lacey takes the bracelet then.
[2017-01-28 21:41:01] <Hankolijo> The GOC guys offer to take whichever artifact you don't carry.
[2017-01-28 21:41:08] <Fae> That's a good idea.
[2017-01-28 21:41:22] <Prior> "Damn slippery sword… Shouldn't take long to get to egypt, I suppose. Folks have been doing it for centuries from here."
[2017-01-28 21:41:28] <Fae> Granted, one of them will probably Leroy Jenkins, but better than not having it.
[2017-01-28 21:42:09] <Hankolijo> A soldier takes the sword. As you turn around, he starts to toss it from one hand to another, it gliding perfectly to do so. It seems fun.
[2017-01-28 21:42:21] <Hankolijo> After a short while, the ship sets out!
[2017-01-28 21:42:33] <Prior> Lacey has a brief mental image of severed heads and exploding steam engines as soon as she gets on board. She frowns at the thinly veiled reference and continues.
[2017-01-28 21:42:44] <Fae> He's gonna poke his eye out.
[2017-01-28 21:43:07] <Hankolijo> A young crew member runs towards you! "Hey! You're them Foundation fellas, right?"
[2017-01-28 21:43:39] <Prior> "Who're you calling a fella?" Lacey sticks her tongue at him. "Aye we are."
[2017-01-28 21:44:02] <Fae> "Yes." to lacey: "A guy most of the time, anyway."
[2017-01-28 21:44:09] <Fae> fella*
[2017-01-28 21:44:28] <Fae> "Anyway, what do you need?"
[2017-01-28 21:45:00] <Hankolijo> He rubs the back of his neck, laughing awkwardly. "S-sorry, M'am! Anyway, um, the captain wants to speak with you. But the global guys said they also want one of you to head down into the cargo hold and help make sure everything's accounted for."
[2017-01-28 21:45:21] <Fae> "Dibs on cargo."
[2017-01-28 21:46:27] <Prior> "Then I suppose I get the captain. Show Mister Walker down to the hold, I think I can find the bridge."
[2017-01-28 21:46:44] <Fae> #tooltime for the hold?
[2017-01-28 21:47:30] <Hankolijo> "Aye aye!" He gives a short salute. And aye aye, Evan! The guy leads you down a set of stairs, where you're met by a somewhat young looking man with a van dyke beard, dressed in the GOC uniform.
[2017-01-28 21:47:35] <Hankolijo> To TT!
[2017-01-28 21:47:54] <Hankolijo> Lacey, meanwhile, should be able to find her way up to the bridge.
[2017-01-28 21:48:27] <Prior> She heads for that line of black square windows on the middle-front-top
[2017-01-28 21:48:33] <Prior> Because that'd make sense
[2017-01-28 21:49:12] <Hankolijo> There would be several crew members doing various labor around, while the captain stands at the front of the room, looking over the ship and the open water.
[2017-01-28 21:49:36] <Hankolijo> He's a respectable looking man, no younger than 50, with a pipe in his mouth and a thick, gray beard.
[2017-01-28 21:50:01] <Prior> Lacey raps on the door as she enters. "Hello! I'm the Foundation fellas. You wanted to talk to one of us?"

[2017-01-28 21:51:26] <Hankolijo> The captain turns to her and smiles. "Ah, yes. I was hoping to find out a bit more about what's going on, exactly. Me and my boys were briefed on the gist of it, but it's all so strange."
[2017-01-28 21:52:26] <Prior> "Oh, well you're Goccers, aren't you? Strange should be normal."
[2017-01-28 21:53:55] <Hankolijo> He gives a short laugh. "Sure, though I will admit, I am not too experienced on these matters. I am a sailor, not a soldier." He turns to face the window again.
[2017-01-28 21:55:05] <Prior> "Oh. Well, the long and the short of it…" She scratches her head and walks up to look out the window with him. "There's an immortal blonde man and we think he's in egypt so we're going to find him and put him in a box. Or possibly several boxes."
[2017-01-28 21:55:18] <Prior> She may have gotten all that wrong.
[2017-01-28 21:56:19] <Hankolijo> He laughs again. "Ah, brilliant. I'm guessing you're much more experienced than I?"
[2017-01-28 21:58:15] <Prior> "Well I have two years of field experience," Twenty in three days. "And that might sound a bit narrow but I can assure you it's been pretty deep. You'll have to assess how that compares to your own."
[2017-01-28 21:58:55] <Hankolijo> "Well, I have plenty of experience on the water on my belt, and I fought in the war… All of this, however, is entirely different."

[2017-01-28 22:00:37] <Hankolijo> A sailor clumsily stumbles through the door… Though, wait a minute. Why's he so pale? And why does he have such pointy teeth? And sure, sailors are meant to be strong, but isn't all that muscle over-dong it?
[2017-01-28 22:00:41] <Hankolijo> …And why is he holding a knife?
[2017-01-28 22:01:03] <Hankolijo> "So much different. But yet somehow… Exciting." The captain hasn't noticed.
[2017-01-28 22:01:18] <Prior> Can Lacey act?
[2017-01-28 22:01:46] <Hankolijo> She can!
[2017-01-28 22:02:28] <Prior> She spins to face the soldier and draws her pistol in one motion. The other hand goes into her other pocket but doesn't draw the knife there.
[2017-01-28 22:02:38] <Prior> "Drop it or it's your kneecap."
[2017-01-28 22:03:03] <Prior> She also keeps a half-eye on the other sailors, and a step away from the captain.
[2017-01-28 22:03:58] <Prior> Oh, and if the sailor moves any further into the room she shoots him in the knee.
[2017-01-28 22:04:03] <Hankolijo> The other sailors dart their heads towards the intruder, and the captain slowly turns around. All of them seem startled and confused. The man with the knife grins wide with his pointy chompers.
[2017-01-28 22:04:20] <Hankolijo> "Try it. You have one shot." He says with a gravelly voice.
[2017-01-28 22:04:33] <Prior> "Sure." She lied a bit.

[2017-01-28 22:05:53] <Hankolijo> He moves his head slightly, and the bullet strikes the side of his face, leaving a nasty hole in his cheek. He doesn't as much as flinch.
[2017-01-28 22:06:06] <Hankolijo> But he's sure as hell bleeding.
[2017-01-28 22:06:43] <Hankolijo> "My turn, then." He barks out, before rushing the nearest group of sailors!
[2017-01-28 22:09:16] <Hankolijo> The men can't react quick enough, only scream, as both the knife and the man's teeth rip into their flesh. One of them is killed instantly by a bite to the neck, another stabbed twice in the stomach, the third sliced across the face and punched /through/ the window behind him.
[2017-01-28 22:09:30] <Hankolijo> Lacey may act.

[2017-01-28 22:14:45] <Hankolijo> The shot hits him in the side of the face again, chipping away more of his cheek. By now you can clearly see the gums on the right side. It's a bloody mess, though.
[2017-01-28 22:15:23] <Prior> Are the other sailors leaving like lacey said or standing around like idiots?
[2017-01-28 22:15:25] <Hankolijo> "Everyone, get down to the deck! Get the GOC soldiers up here!" He shouts to the five crew members present, but then darts his head around, hearing something from the deck.
[2017-01-28 22:15:28] <Hankolijo> More gunfire.
[2017-01-28 22:15:43] <Hankolijo> The other sailors are running to the exit anyway!

[2017-01-28 22:18:02] <Hankolijo> The muscular man still charges one of them, embedding his knife in his gut and pulling it upwards, leaving a massive, straight wound. The sailor starts thrashing and screaming on the ground. The captain is still standing where he was, in shock.
[2017-01-28 22:18:21] <Hankolijo> That is, until he pulls out his own sidearm, apparently hidden in his caot.

[2017-01-28 22:30:48] <Hankolijo> The captain also fires several shots, though none of them enough to seemingly hurt. The man stops, staring the two down, before widening his grin, as more gunfire erupts below you! "I guess it's time to take this party further." He says, turning to head down!

[2017-01-28 22:37:12] <Prior> Lacey follows. "What's happening?"
[2017-01-28 22:38:46] <Hankolijo> Down on the deck, you see a /mess/. You spot 6 bodies on the floor, 4 of them sailors. Two other sailors are currently trying to pounce on some GOC agents, 4 in total, firing their rifles at them. And the man from earlier has just entered the fray.

[2017-01-28 22:53:05] <Hankolijo> A plane can be heard in the distance! Said plane is holding several Foundation agents, including Ethel, and some emergency explosives for if shit goes South!
[2017-01-28 22:53:33] <Prior> Assuming Lacey can act, she gets between him and the captain, knife out.

[2017-01-28 22:59:56] <Prior> Well that was indeed the goal
[2017-01-28 23:00:04] <Hankolijo> Will, you've just been para-dropped onto a large transport ship along with some agents and Ethel. Worst comes to worst, you have instructions to blow it up. You land on the deck, where you find 6 dead bodies and 4 GOCcers fighting two sailor-vampires.

[2017-01-28 23:05:06] <Hankolijo> Evan, you go up in between the two fights! To your left is Lacey getting stabbed by the man with the Captain next to her, and to your right is the fight against the vamps.
[2017-01-28 23:05:26] <Fae> He makes sure the cross is very visible.

[2017-01-28 23:06:32] <Hankolijo> The first vampire, however, instantly starts to cover his eyes at the sight of the cross.
[2017-01-28 23:06:55] <Prior> Can lacey do her turn?
[2017-01-28 23:07:31] <Hankolijo> She can!

[2017-01-28 23:08:14] <Prior> She grunts as she's stabbed, but brings her own knife around in a practiced swing towards her vampire's temple.

[2017-01-28 23:11:56] <Hankolijo> Strong enough, in this case! The knife pops out, and the man stumbles back. "Good… Good hit." He says, licking his blade of her blood.
[2017-01-28 23:12:25] <Hankolijo> The vamp, meanwhile, has dropped on the floor to avoid looking at the cross. The GOCcers quickly cuff him.
[2017-01-28 23:12:35] <Fae> Does Evan still get to do a thing, or was crossing his turn?
[2017-01-28 23:12:48] <Hankolijo> Ethel, Will and Evan all get to do things.
[2017-01-28 23:13:08] <Hankolijo> They can see the situation unfolding with Lacey and The Guru.

[2017-01-28 23:14:34] <Fae> He then takes his rock and gets in nice and slippery in some of the blood along the deck, then skids it along the ground like a hockey puck towards the feet of some of the vamps.
[2017-01-28 23:14:56] <Hankolijo> Er, what vamps? One's dead, the other is on the ground, cuffed.
[2017-01-28 23:15:17] <Hankolijo> There's the man with Lacey, though.
[2017-01-28 23:15:41] <Fae> Ah. Towards the Guru, then. He's being careful not to trip up lacey, though.
[2017-01-28 23:16:00] <Hankolijo> Ethel, while you do believe you've projected the cross successfully, you doubt it did anything.

[2017-01-28 23:18:36] <Hankolijo> Well then. You don't just avoid the rock. You manage to kick it into the man's leg, making him fall to one knee, and leaving an actual wound!
[2017-01-28 23:18:39] <Hankolijo> The rock rolls back to Evan!
[2017-01-28 23:19:12] <Fae> Evan picks up the rock and blinks. Oh yeah, he's hanging onto this.
[2017-01-28 23:19:53] <Fae> Is there an evac of some sort? If so, he resumes dragging Mitch to it.
[2017-01-28 23:20:23] <Hankolijo> There are life boats! Meanwhile the GOCcers line themselves up, guns aimed at The Guru.
[2017-01-28 23:22:45] <Fae> Evan pulls Mitch to the lifeboats.
[2017-01-28 23:22:56] <Hankolijo> He laughs maniacally, still brandishing the knife. At this point, you all hear a call from the bridge. "It is nearly time!"
[2017-01-28 23:23:15] <Hankolijo> It's The Prophet, standing in a window. He adjusts his glasses.
[2017-01-28 23:23:38] <Fae> "…Oh crap." He hurries faster! "Everyone off the boat!"

[2017-01-28 23:24:33] <Hankolijo> The captain points his gun at him, and loads two shots into his head!

[2017-01-28 23:26:17] <Hankolijo> The man hardly reacts to this, though his head is a bloody mess now. He starts to stand back up, slowly.

[2017-01-28 23:28:08] <Fae> After they get Mitch in a boat, evan runs back towards Lacey ~I really hope this works.~
[2017-01-28 23:28:29] <Prior> "If he gets to his feet, everyone fire."
[2017-01-28 23:28:39] <Hankolijo> Does Lacey do anything?

[2017-01-28 23:29:07] <Fae> Evan tosses the rock to lacey (not throwing it /at/ her, mind). "Magic ammo."
[2017-01-28 23:29:26] <Hankolijo> He stands up…
[2017-01-28 23:29:29] <Prior> Lacey catches it with her off-hand without looking. "Thank you."

[2017-01-28 23:40:42] <Hankolijo> Ethel hears it clearly. Whatever the others hear isn't important. She can hear a /very/ bad sound from below the deck, where the engine would be. This would be right below where The Guru and Lacey are standing.
[2017-01-28 23:40:52] <Hankolijo> She figures this out so quick, she can alert the others immediately!
[2017-01-28 23:41:13] <SpokyBeeps> "…" Ethel blink- "Lacey, everyone, off the boat!"
[2017-01-28 23:41:48] <Hankolijo> The others will also hear a rumble.
[2017-01-28 23:42:09] <Fae> Evan just gives up crawling and dashes for the lifeboat with Mitch.
[2017-01-28 23:42:33] <Fae> He figures whatever 'ending' this boat gets today is going down right about now.
[2017-01-28 23:43:00] <Hankolijo> The Captain grits his teeth, grabbing Lacey by the arm. "Apologies, but this is the best option." He runs towards the edge of the boat as The Guru lands, trying to pull Lacey along!
[2017-01-28 23:43:02] <TheRaven> Will hauls ass for the lifeboat.
[2017-01-28 23:43:26] <Prior> Lacey scrambles backwards. "Everyone off, NOW!" Lacey sprints and dives into the water.
[2017-01-28 23:43:37] <Hankolijo> Everyone else can make it to a life boat! The GOCcers are retreating towards the boats as well, and what sailors are left are already there.
[2017-01-28 23:43:40] <SpokyBeeps> Ethel makes a run, leaping off the edge!
[2017-01-28 23:44:23] <Hankolijo> Whoever goes for a boat will have it set off along with the rest of the agents, GOCcers and seamen, while those that jump into the water will find it /cold/.
[2017-01-28 23:44:26] <Fae> Evan drops the lifeboat once Will's on.
[2017-01-28 23:44:57] <Hankolijo> "Goodbye and good luck, Psi-7. Whatever happens." The Prophet says.
[2017-01-28 23:45:16] <Hankolijo> Then the engine blows up, along with the explosives in the cargo hold.
[2017-01-28 23:46:17] <Hankolijo> The deck is torn apart, scraps of metal and wood flying all around. The bridge and the rest of it collapses, taking The Prophet with it. You briefly spot The Guru flying through the air, lots of blood trailing behind him.
[2017-01-28 23:46:45] <Hankolijo> The sound is intense, and all kinds of rubble rains over the life boat.
[2017-01-28 23:46:58] <Hankolijo> Eventually, it all settles down. The boat is sinking.
[2017-01-28 23:47:00] <Fae> Evan tries to track where the Guru splashes down in hopes that they can recover him before more trouble comes from him.
[2017-01-28 23:47:17] <Hankolijo> The Guru seems to have landed in the remains of the ship.
[2017-01-28 23:47:37] <Fae> Crud. No retrieval from that, even if he did survive.
[2017-01-28 23:48:28] <Hankolijo> In the near distance, you now see an approaching Foundation boat.
[2017-01-28 23:48:32] <Fae> Did Lacey, Ethel, and the Captain make it / can the lifeboats pick them up?
[2017-01-28 23:48:57] <Hankolijo> They can! All of them are fine, though they are cold. The Captain is shivering the most.
[2017-01-28 23:49:04] <Prior> Assuming Lacey isn't dead, she surfaces and waves to the lifeboat.
[2017-01-28 23:49:36] <Fae> Evan sees if anyone can provide medical attention for the injured, while scanning the water for more survivors.
[2017-01-28 23:50:13] <Hankolijo> There are a couple who know their way around injuries both among the agents and the sailors. They start doing what they can.
[2017-01-28 23:50:22] <Hankolijo> It seems everyone that survived that is already on a boat.
[2017-01-28 23:50:36] <Prior> Once the friendly boat arrives Lacey gets on board, strips to her underclothes to prevent hypothermia, and gets to work on any wounded.
[2017-01-28 23:50:44] <Hankolijo> The Foundation one arrives to pick everyone up!
[2017-01-28 23:50:47] <TheRaven> "…haven't seen a blast that big in a while. What the hell was on that thing?"
[2017-01-28 23:51:11] <Fae> "Lots of explosives. I think they set off the engine and started a chain reaction."
[2017-01-28 23:51:17] <Hankolijo> Evan, Mitch wakes up! "…Fuck, I feel like… Someone threw a rock at my head…"
[2017-01-28 23:51:37] <SpokyBeeps> Ethel does little more than shed her fatigues, leaving her in her underthings, leather buffers, and tank-top! "… I think I've gotten the swim out'a me for a while."
[2017-01-28 23:51:44] <Fae> "…Yeah. Vampire attacked ya."
[2017-01-28 23:52:51] <Hankolijo> Soon after the boat, a helicopter arrives! While everyone is accounted for, you get to see them extract two bodies from the wreckage. One of them, much smaller than the other, its limbs bent in unnatural ways… And a pair of broken spectacles on his nose.

[2017-01-28 23:54:24] <Prior> Lacey wipes the blood off her hands. Everybody is stablised who will be. She hugs will and Ethel in turn. "Thank you very very much, both of you."
[2017-01-28 23:54:53] <Hankolijo> The Guru is loaded onto the chopper, where it's restrained down to shit.

[2017-01-28 23:55:24] <Hankolijo> The other agents that parachuted in grumble something.
[2017-01-28 23:55:50] <Fae> both > all*
[2017-01-28 23:56:08] <Hankolijo> One of them still grumbles something about 'hugs'.
[2017-01-28 23:56:45] <Fae> Evan hasn't given any hugs. Though, he probably does not give as good hugs as lacey.
[2017-01-28 23:56:48] <Hankolijo> Never the less, when everyone's on the boat, they're all taken back to the coast! It looks like you didn't make it much further than a kilometer out.
[2017-01-28 23:57:23] <Prior> Lacey gives out further hugs, especially to the other agents she recognises,
[2017-01-28 23:57:43] <Fae> Does Evan recognize any of the other paratroopers?
[2017-01-28 23:57:43] <SpokyBeeps> Ethel nods to Lacey- "… Hope it was worth it, whatever you guys had goin' on here."
[2017-01-28 23:58:08] <Hankolijo> You might recognize them, as they're all agents that work at Site-77. Security staff.
[2017-01-28 23:58:24] <Fae> "That's the thing. We didn't. This whole thing was just supposed to be transport to a mission in egypt before it was infiltrated."
[2017-01-28 23:58:29] <Hankolijo> Yay for hugs! Everyone is taken back to the docks, and are debriefed accordingly.
[2017-01-28 23:58:32] <Prior> "Hm? Oh I have absolutely no idea what happened, except that it was all going to hell and we needed help."
[2017-01-28 23:58:51] <Fae> He'll make sure they all get something. Maybe some nice beers.
[2017-01-28 23:59:05] <SpokyBeeps> "Lovely…" Ethel shakes her head- "… I was preppin' to pick up an artifact in Rome before I was interrupted fe'r this."
[2017-01-28 23:59:13] <Hankolijo> The Prophet's body is confirmed non-anomalous and The Guru is put in containment. He is noted to regenerate his wounds incredibly quickly, but restraints seem to hold him.
[2017-01-29 00:00:06] <Fae> "We /really/ need to get on whoever's in charge of the vetting process…" he shakes his head.
[2017-01-29 00:00:18] <Hankolijo> No artifacts have been acquired this run, and the GOC are upset to find out both about Psi-7 not getting to Egypt and the ship.

[2017-01-29 00:01:30] <Hankolijo> The Foundation and GOC unite efforts to find out how those two got on the ship, and how the vampires on-board came to be. The Captain and his men are only briefly held for debriefing, then allowed to leave.
[2017-01-29 00:01:46] <Hankolijo> And so ends a failed attempt at getting to Cairo.

[2017-01-29 00:03:08] <Cherry> ~~~the end~~~
[2017-01-28 21:48:21] <Fae> Evan heads down to the hold.
[2017-01-28 21:50:27] <Fae> So. The guy with a beard? Meet the guy with the mustache.
[2017-01-28 21:50:37] <Hankolijo> The man gives an off-hand salute, and the crew mate wanders off. The soldier extends a hand. "Psi-7, right? Name's Mitch Hubsburn."

[2017-01-28 21:51:05] <Fae> He shakes it. "Yeah. Evan Walker."
[2017-01-28 21:52:50] <Hankolijo> "Right then, Ethan. Let's get to work." He says, turning around. You're in a dimly lit hall, the walls covered with pipes and valves and the like. There are a couple of metal doors on either side along the hall, and you can see it open up into a large room at the end.
[2017-01-28 21:52:52] <Fae> Evan looks around (his glasses are on)
[2017-01-28 21:53:12] <Fae> Evan almost corrects him… but lets it be.
[2017-01-28 21:55:16] <Hankolijo> You don't see anything too magical. You reach the large room to find what is indeed the cargo hold! There are lots and lots of crates around, some small, some large, all wood. The man turns around and hands you a pad and pen.
[2017-01-28 21:55:46] <Hankolijo> "Here's a list of stuff that's supposed to be in here, Edgar. Look through each crate with care, check off what you find."
[2017-01-28 21:55:47] <Fae> Evan starts taking note of what's down there.

[2017-01-28 21:58:01] <Hankolijo> You do well! You're sure you don't miss anything in the crates you search, but there are a lot of them. At some point, however, it seems like Mitch went another way.
[2017-01-28 21:58:11] <Hankolijo> It's like a crate maze in here!
[2017-01-28 21:58:30] <Fae> Aw great. Now Evan has to go and track him down. grumblegrumble.
[2017-01-28 21:58:49] <Fae> Inwardly, he likes the maze feeling though. He's in his element in places like this.

[2017-01-28 22:01:35] <Hankolijo> You hear a "What the-", a 'smack' and shuffling from behind some boxes.
[2017-01-28 22:01:43] <Fae> He looks.
[2017-01-28 22:01:47] <Fae> Sneakily.
[2017-01-28 22:01:56] <Fae> Smacks are generally bad.
[2017-01-28 22:02:09] <Fae> He'll try to use the maze to conceal himself while he looks.
[2017-01-28 22:03:00] <Hankolijo> There stands a tall, athletic man, though not a muscle-mountain like the others you've seen. He has short, blonde hair, and wears thin, rectangular glasses. He has a somewhat angular face, and is adjusting his loose, black shirt.

[2017-01-28 22:07:50] <Hankolijo> It seems like he doesn't care much about your cover, Evan. The man turns to face you directly, adjusting his glasses. "Evan Walker. Psi-7."
[2017-01-28 22:10:59] <Fae> "…Bye." Evan unleashes the LUCKY ROCK (TM). Known for always coming back and for causing disproportionate amounts of damage. Even if he can't /hit/ the guy, he's hoping the ensuing chaos will distract him.

[2017-01-28 22:13:15] <Hankolijo> The man steps two steps to the right, moments before the rock is thrown. Mitch pokes his head out from the crate behind the man, rubbing his forehead. "Ugh, bloody hell, who the-" Before he can respond, he's hit in the forehead by a rock, flopping to the side and knocking over a crate full of medkits, spilling them just where the man had just stood.
[2017-01-28 22:13:38] <Hankolijo> The rock bounces back across the medkits and returns to Evan. The man smirks. "Please, calm down. I do not wish to fight."
[2017-01-28 22:16:17] <Fae> "…Talk."
[2017-01-28 22:17:51] <Hankolijo> He pushes his glasses up on his face once more. "I understand that you're heading to Egypt to find THE CREATOR, correct? And with you there 's one more agent, one Lacey Sturbanks, yes?"
[2017-01-28 22:18:59] <Fae> "…One other agent too. Esther Wilder here covertly, though I'm not sure where she is."
[2017-01-28 22:20:27] <Hankolijo> He gives a cheeky smile. "No, I'm certain I would have foreseen that much. That is, unless she's unimportant enough to be killed by my comrade before causing any problems."

[2017-01-28 22:22:02] <Fae> His eyes narrow. ~Thanks for the info. Now I know you're a precog and that there's another one of you… and maybe…~ "I promise you that Esther Wilder is on this ship." He smirks. "Maybe your foresight isn't quite as trusty as you though."

[2017-01-28 22:24:13] <Hankolijo> "It's trustworthy enough to know how the events today will end. I would have advised THE CREATOR against it all, but I knew there was no point." He leans against a crate, crossing his arms. "Like I said, if she's on the ship, she might already be dead. All I know is that you, Lacey and my friend survive this. The rest are expendable at best."

[2017-01-28 22:26:54] <Hankolijo> Well, he doesn't appear to have any obvious weaknesses. Though, you see a concentration of magic around his head, less so around the rest of his body. He shakes his head.
[2017-01-28 22:27:16] <Hankolijo> "I know that all too well. There are two futures I see in the long run, as they say. But what I see today is unchangeable."
[2017-01-28 22:28:19] <Fae> Evan thinks. "Alright, I'll humor you. What are these two futures, oh enlightened one?" He begins pacing, circling the guy.
[2017-01-28 22:31:44] <Hankolijo> The man doesn't even follow Evan's movement. "I see a future where peace is enforced. One where there are no more wars, where all men live in harmony. And I see a world in deeper chaos than it has ever been in before."
[2017-01-28 22:32:09] <Hankolijo> "And yet I, who has been granted the power of The Prophet, can not say which is the future where THE CREATOR reigns supreme."
[2017-01-28 22:32:56] <Fae> "Two roads diverged in a yellow wood…" Evan keeps pacing. "And I took the third one." He pulls out his lighter. "Sorry, but you're a lousy prophet."
[2017-01-28 22:34:54] <Hankolijo> He looks towards him. "This ship doesn't go down in flames of all things." He says, pointing towards the lighter. "But be my guest. Try it."
[2017-01-28 22:35:42] <Fae> "Oh. Oh, this isn't for the ship. Tell me, what am I about to do?"
[2017-01-28 22:37:10] <Hankolijo> The man simply crouches down and picks up one of the medkits. Perception, Evan.

[2017-01-28 22:44:08] <Hankolijo> He does so. "They're prescription, mind you. Though I do suppose they'll break today." Ethan, there's something behind you. Or multiple somethings.

[2017-01-28 23:01:36] <Fae> Unfortunately, he's fairly certain he can't drag anyone else out…
[2017-01-28 23:02:01] <Fae> still, he opens the door and flashes the cross. At this point he's swinging it above his head for maximum visibility.
[2017-01-28 23:03:05] <Hankolijo> He's moving up to the deck, yes?
[2017-01-28 23:03:18] <Fae> Yes.
[2017-01-28 23:03:24] <Hankolijo> To HI!
