Toe 24

[2014] Morning arrives at the beach, with the distinctive, unfamiliar sent of salt water. It'll probably be a while before you see anything quite like this again, so it probably wouldn't hurt to take it in for a bit while packing up. … Not too far from there is the stairs leading up to [F2015]. The next floor is… well, it's more like your average, typical floor. Lightly forested, various make shift pathway trailing through it, lots of small critters roaming around.
Julian heads in last as the head up a floor, sighing once they breach onto the next floor "Wish the floors were somewhat more unique, I wonder if there were really only that few biomes back then"
[OOC] Shuu: Well fuck me
Sohl: "Ahh yes, the forest biome." He rocks back and forth on his heels. "And I wonder how much of the world was forest!"
Peter‘ shrugs. "Wood’s useful."
[OOC] Wrench: Whoops wow
[OOC] Yin: Both of yas!
Yin shakes her heads as she follows along. "Who knows, it's all lost under the miasma now."
PseudoGM: It IS where you get more of your oxygen from….
Sohl: "Don't say that, some dantali is going to crash through the trees and tell us, now."
Harino: "…This isn't some comedy show."
Wrench rolls her shoulder and peers around. "I'm gonna see if I can't climb up and take a look."
Wrench rolled 5d6 and got 2, 1, 1, 4, 6 ( Total: 14 ) for Navigation
PseudoGM: Shortly after the words leave Harino's mouth and before Wrench can actually make much progress, you can hear a siren or klax, very close by, going off.
Wrench slides back down from the treetops.
Wrench: "Heck. Towards or away?"
Harino: "…I regret saying that, now."
Sohl points directly at Shuu!
Shuu: "Towards, of course"
Shuu starts heading towards the source of the noise- Or at very minimum whatever looks suspicious right now since it's likely a floo-wided klaxon
Sohl: "… well he -could- have said away! Physically speaking…"
Sohl hustles!
PseudoGM: Towards. Rapidly closing in. There's a brassy, artifical sounding voice that calls out, maybe from a megaphone or something: "INTERUDER ALERT! INTREUDER ALERT! SUPPRESS ALL DANTALI INVADORS!"
Sohl: "Awright, time to give 'em a thrashin'!"
PseudoGM: Some of those red tinted, brass robots? Don't seem to actually be chasing anything though, just… closing in on you. The two in the back let out a whirring noise as their chests open up and fire a few rounds towards the group, shreading a few treees in the process.
Yin: "Is there one floor without a major malfunctioning bit of hardware in this tower!?" Yin shouts to be heard over the noise.
[Round 1] Yin's always quickest to act anytime something gets into practical combat range, though!
PseudoGM: Yin?
Sohl: "Wrong targets, you steel-shelled lumps!!"
Harino: "…I think their friend or foe is broken."

He spreads open his arms as he starts to float, the golden halo on his back shining brighter "But you're not going to have the chance" his chest open to reveal the gravity collector, he puts both hands in front of it as a deep-black sphere builds up between his hands. He picks the sphere up

[OOC] PseudoGM: +30 EXP
[OOC] Yin: +5 MP from Will for winning
Shuu puts his axe back on his back, looking at the robots "I particularly dislike those ones"
Harino lets out a breath. "Too many of these things are going haywire." [+12 HP from Indomitable]
Sohl: "I guess that'd be another reason the previous floor would be so empty." He turns over a wrecked robot with his axe head, inspecting it.
Yin: The war body disperses, leaving just Yin standing there, rubbing her hands as though they're slightly numb. "Hopefully this is the only thing keeping people out right now. I wonder if your friend's new allies set these guys off, Shuu"
PseudoGM: Ah, the ordinal. … you can't really remember a single time you've ever run into one of the brassy contraptions and it hasn't been a pain in the ass, really.
PseudoGM: The magic that keeps them running for so long isn't the most stable energy so they tend to get weird glitches all the time.
Shuu: "Most definitely, Yin. They're just laggy as… Well, as they often are" he shrugs
Shuu: "Hopefully that's all that is in our way for now"
Sohl: "Brass bodies but magical direction." He shakes his head. "That's a kinda metaphor for the tower, wouldn't ya' say?
PseudoGM: Doesn't look like there's too much else in the area aside from some birds and boars, which have gone back to ignoring the lot of you now that the excitement has died down.
Wrench: "Anyway, straight shot to the next stairs."
Shuu: "That it is" he says to Sohl, then looks in the stairs' direction "Alright" he answers to Wrench, and heads towrds it
Sohl: "Mm…" He sheathes his axe, continuing along, picking up the rear of the party.
Sohl: "What kinda alternative would there even be to the tower, then?"
Sohl: "At least one that also includes what to do after destroyin' it."
PseudoGM: The experience of being able to spend most of the day hiking from point A to point B without any interruption is kind of novel at least, even if everything else about the floor is sort of samey, so there's that at least.
Shuu: "Uncertain what other solution would there be, Sohl. We just need to deal with what we have right now"
Sohl nods. "Yeah. I figure we get into another Dantali scrap, I just keep yellin' what I was yellin' about before. It's a good tactic!"
Yin: "Destroy the tower?! That's crazy talk, Sohl. Even if it were safe to build outside of the tower, we have no idea what's going on on the surface."
Shuu: "We're still hopefully going to find some alloci willing to share their half of the story"
Sohl smiles a big, pearly-white smile. "That's the spirit!"
Yin shakes her head at the thought
Shuu crosses his arms "That said… The tower will always be a temporary measure… As much as we might hate to admit it. Look at how it is, it isn't perennial"
Shuu: "It'll come down one day, and I sure hope there's a plan for that. And that i'm not around"
Sohl: "Think you're that lucky?"
Shuu: "No"
PseudoGM: At any rate… you make it to the next stairwell a bit before lights down. There's scattered remnets of old camps in the cleared out area round it. One or two of the fire pits look like they're usable without any further tinkering with them, to boot.
Harino: "…Even if the miasma clears, I can't imagine people wanting to leave their mostly stable homes to resettle the world so easily."
Wrench: "I'm a tower rat."
Shuu: "There's always someone, Harino. Someone crazy enough to want to know what's out there, someone suffering enough that it's better than what they have here" he looks at the campsites "Hrm… This place sees some trafic"
Harino: "Oh, I know getting some people to leave wouldn't be hard. But most of them? That would be one heck of a job, unless there's a dire emergency."
Yin: "Or they're forced out."
Sohl: "It'd definitely be a bad plan to jump."
Sohl: "Or even take the stairs."
Sohl: "AND animals are pretty bad at taking orders!"
Shuu: "I mean"
Shuu: "It'd be the sort of thing that happens over generations, if it happens"
Shuu: "Some choose to leave, others to stay. Eventually more leave than stay"
Shuu looks at the ceiling, lights dimming already?
Harino: "Probably, yeah. Or word trickles in about some lush sites, or cities flourishing, that kind of news would get some people moving."
PseudoGM: Not quite, but it will be soon.
Shuu: "Want to make our stop here?"
Shuu: "Shouldn't take long before night comes"
Sohl goes to start a fire, somewhat thankful the camp is well used.
Yin sighs. "Sohl, as much as you set up wonderful camps, I am very ready for another nice inn bed."
Harino: "Hopefully all of these camps mean that a town's not too far off from here."
Wrench: "I wouldn't camp if I could reach a town same night, least-like."
Sohl: "Could pop a head up and see what lies above real quick."
Sohl: "Still got time before it actually goes blackout."
Sohl nods at Yin. "Heh! No offense taken. A'int a night goes by on the road that I don't wish I was at home… but then I'm in a city and it can get kinda same-y!"
Sohl: "What a horrible curse."
Shuu: "Sure, i'll go see if this leads up to a city, hold on tight" he says, heading up the stairs. Should take a while, but just a short look
PseudoGM: The dot matrix reader immediate inside the stairwell lights up and displays: [N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A]
PseudoGM: Same thing at the one at the top of the stairs too.
Yin sets down to wait, getting comfortable and pulling out the little leatherbound book she keeps.
Shuu does not get a good feeling out of that. Still, no city immediately in sight, correct?
PseudoGM: And when you go to open the door to [F2016], inexplcibly, you find it locked.
Shuu elipses quietly
Shuu turns around and heads back down to the party
Shuu: "Locked door"
Sohl 's eyes shift left, shift right.
Shuu: "Status panel working but with no incoming data"
Harino: "…That's ominous."
Sohl: "…whaddya' mean locked?"
Shuu: "Literally locked, I could have forced it but i'd rather be well rested tomorrow and with, hopefully, light"
Shuu: "We're likely having to bust it open"
Sohl: "Hrmrmrmrmmrmrmm," he rumbles.
Sohl: "Yeah, that's pretty weird."
Wrench: "Don't worry. We're gettin' through."
Shuu: "Omnious, is what it is. Hopefully it's just a broken door"
Harino: "No kidding… Definitely want to be rested up, then."
Sohl: "Not a problem!" He lights the fire.
Sohl rolled 6d6 and got 1, 3, 4, 3, 5, 4 ( Total: 20 ) for survival
Yin: "Maybe it's not so ominous. There were some broken sentries down here. It might be defensive if there is a town on the other side?" She shrugs uncertainly, "Rest is a good idea either way though."
Sohl makes a safe enough camp… but the seasoning for dinner just lacks a certain kick. [The night passes uneventfully.]
PseudoGM: Still beats nutritional bars, at least.
