    "It's not a jet, but it'll have to do, I guess", Chris replies, chuckling, "Really though, it shouldn't be too tough."

    Entering the vehicle, Ghost inspects the insides, taking special note of the cockpit. If one paid attention to him, they might notice his outline flickering ominously in time with the eye twitching fuzz playing out from the wings.

    "Tell me, would you know what they call those things in the wings?", Ghost offhandedly says to Wizard as he does a once over of the controls.

    "Mm, aye well that's why we're here." He says levelly, his arms folded in front of his chest now. "Is that all you can tell us? We've been informed that it might be something called a 'Djinnhole'. Do you know anything about that?"

    Approaching the chopper, he leaps up to the interior, and begins wrestling with the over-sized seatbelt.

    Kssan skitters back across the sand, bag in tow. He enters the ruins and runs down the winding ramp, before coming to the main chamber, where three lights are being waved around erratically.

    Had Dustin not suddenly vanished into thin air, he would have noted that the dead crewman had a gun next to his corpse, and that another sailor was taking cover behind a crate nearby. He looked as though he'd already taken a shot in the shoulder. No one else would have been visible from his poor vantage point.

    "Well uh, the plan is to sneak up to the bridge and shoot any bad guys that happen to notice me," Galk says to Garret as the lift slows to a halt. "That's... really all I've got.

    Don't suppose you have anything better?"

    Barry loads his many pockets to the brim with tag rounds for his blunderbuss Bessy, a ballistic vest in case of ne'er-do-wells, and a full canteen for refreshment. He hurries down the hall and out the door to see what the commotion is about.

    He stares breathless out at the jungle full of towering beasts, just itching for the hunt to begin. "Agent, I don't know where you've taken us, but your NADS has made me the happiest man in the world." A determined grin wipes the awe from Barry's face. "Shall we get started then?"

    Rick looks through the rest of the crates contents, notices the metal suitcase and picks it up. He takes one of the headsets, too, and equips it.

    "Once you've all decided on a disguise, you should take the ammunition that's been provided," he says. "We may need it if things turn ugly."

    He gently places the suitcase on the ground, unlocks the latches and opens it.


    And Speed, what's Jessie's team supposed to do? I posted the update about us going down the stairs, so are we where Dustin used to be?

    Arthur grumbles to himself as he sorts through the armory.

    "Armored vests? Useful, but I prefer my tailored waistcoat, to be honest."

    Eventually he settles on a small gun and a pocket knife. Then he rushes to catch up with the rest of the team, bursting through the doors of the NADS to see the scene beyond. A single drop of sweat, either from nervousness or the intense heat, drips off his forehead.

    "Uh. Oh dear. I...I'm afraid this is rather outside of my field of expertise."

    He coughs loudly.

    You see lots of things, out there in the swamp at night. Some of them might even be real. But the Bugboy? That's just plain impossible.

    Cait marvels at the view for a moment and heads back into the armory. She roots around and finds a large harpoon gun. Using her demolition wiring knowledge, she wires the device to her core.

    "Can't risk killing such lovely beasts, but I also can't keep you all safe without a Dino-Tazer."

    Trotting to the doorway with an oddly melodic pinging gait, Cait calls back, "You great white hunters coming?" and leaps over the cliff, relying on her hydraulically actuated aerofoil panels to slow her decent to the verdant canopy below.

    "Tyson", reasonably satisfied with his disguise, moves to look over the crate, and picks out one of the communicators.

    He motions to put it on, then pauses. He taps his morphographic disguise watch, and returns to his usual form- he visibly relaxes his metallic shoulders as he does so. Unfolding both secondary arms, Alloy goes to work unscrewing a plate covering his torso-mounted speaker, removing it and slipping the communicator inside. The disturbingly long and slender three-jointed fingers of his secondary hands move with unnatural speed, and he makes several peculiar noises as he fiddles around inside his own innards, finally slipping his hands back out and refastening the cover plate.

    "There," his usual, mechanical flange states with a tone of satisfaction. "Neatly integrated with my systems."
    Alloy hits his watch again, returning to "Tyson". He grabs a bandolier of Thumper Grenades, slipping it on.

    "These must be the stun grenades I've read about," he says with a hint of whimsy. He begins muttering to himself. "Can't just carry them around in a bandolier, oh no. Maybe I can rig something up next time I hit the lab? A retracting torso-mounted grenade launcher, maybe. There's enough dead space in the torso cavity, more if I move around some of the redundant systems and look into enhanced miniaturization for others. I wonder what firing it would feel like, if I'm gonna have to do some more sense discovery training like I did for the secondary arms..."
    He wanders away from the crate, beginning to pace. He continues to mutter inaudibly, gesturing with his hands as he deems necessary.
