    "Not the slightest, I'm afraid, I just nod and smile," Zee replies cheerily. "Between you and me, I was telling the truth earlier. Just looking for something useful to occupy my time. Wasn't quite expecting Mister Ket to be such a psychopath, though. What a shame." He starts heading back towards the foyer.

    "Gonna go grab my stuff."

    She follows into his room and leans on a wall.

    "My friend here," she gestures at Leo, "has a friend who is thinking of running against Michael. Problem is, Michael's embedded himself in Meridi. Like, his record is as squeaky clean as his plastic shell. So I'm thinkin', there's no way that guy has been totally perfect for 20-some years. Not when he's up to his HUD in politics every day. So we need to find that dirt. Doesn't need to be fancy. Something that'll monitor his main communication--probably his e-mail--would do the trick."

    Ricky feels flat but I feel like he is slowly coming together. More interaction with people will probably give me a better handle on him.

    Gonna have Clyde try to chat up Ricky and newLorenzo sometime, gotta keep the team spirit goin'.

    Also I dunno if you're getting bored with this whole zombie hunting segment, seems like your character is having a bit of trouble having things to do due to his initial lack of success with a pistol. Might want to talk to DE?AD after this for some inspiration. Could do a dimgray reveal to find a nice grime-encrusted shotgun or something, vOv.

    Though maybe if you just shot it more it'd work. Who knows?

    Yeah, I do feel like Ricky doesnt have much use against these zombies. I did think about just unloading a clip into one, but felt that wouldn't do much good. I think I shall try at least.

    Ricky pulls his revolver out. "If one bullet don't work...keep shootin', right?" He unloads an entire clip into the thing in front of him.

    [9/25] It starts slowly at first. Low rumblings just below the surface of the planet. Ripples forming in streams. Ocean waves growing larger. Trees swaying wildly.

    Then the first cracks appear. Each guitar lick rips a new tear in the crust. Each snare hit spurts molten rock up from the ground, like a blood from a wound. Earthquakes get worse, forming chasms that swallow any buildings that haven't yet fallen over. The cymbal-crashes of the resulting explosions add to the massive build-up of sound that Sokudo is redirecting toward the tower. And slowly but surely it crumbles. The foundation splits in half, compromising the entire structure.

    It goes down, and that's when the song changes.

    The resulting explosion is massive. Far too large for what Sokudo is causing. Yan, Gin and he can all feel it instantly. Something is ripping through reality; not just altering or breaking it, but wiping it out. Vek, however, has the perfect vantage point to see what's happening. The tower is gone, and in its place is a inky black dot. Spikes are popping out and receding from it rapidly and at random, like a music vizualizer mixed with a black hole. Sometimes it expands massively in size, then immediately seems to flatten itself so much as to be two-dimensional. Two things are certain, though: it is slowly growing larger, and anything it touches simply isn't there anymore. On the bright side, the alien fleet now seems far more concerned with retreating than attacking.

    It's at this moment--as Sokudo's symphony is interrupted by the anomaly--that Yan and Gin enter Sims' quarters [93/60] just in time to see Sokudo collapse on the floor, blood streaming from his nose.

    "Shit!" Sims shouts, then looks over to Yan and Gin. "He's gone Resonant hasn't he? He's been acting even weirder than usual since he opened that box, but he wouldn't tell me anything."



    Once again, Speed is attempting to destroy the universe.

    Gin pays Soduko no mind. That terrible anomaly is a more pressing concern. He swipes the Magic Box an tries to give the people in Sims room some time.

    to be fair that's somewhat ambiguous!

    Ambiguous, yes.

    Encouraging you to destroy the entire planet? Not so much.

    "Fuck," Yan manages. She falls forward, warping herself beside Sokudo. She jams her hand against his neck and tries to force a mental link with him, trying to pull the Resonance off of him just enough to allow him to recover, trying to share the burden with him.

    Sokudo slowly pushes himself up, wheezing as his own blood smears on his face.

    "I'm not, done, yet."

    Getting to his feet, he manages to force a smile, and steals a quick kiss from Sims. "For luck." He does not seem to particularly care that he just got blood all over her.

    He feels the hole in space, the absence of sound. Dimensional Anomaly. Unlock and harness. He decides to try one last thing.

    Sokudo screws up his eyes, attempting to concentrate through his intense migraine. He turns his newfound power of cosmic vibration upon himself. He shakes, faster and faster, his body... resonating. He attempts to reach through the void that's rending apart the first three dimensions, reach beyond its threshold to the reality beyond reality. He attempts to focus on the dimensional strings that bind and weave together the universe.



    And then he attempts to strum them.


    I don't remember if I ever actually spent that point and forgot to remove it from my stat line, or if I never used it. If i haven't I'd like to now.

    Attempting to "unlock and harness" the dimensional anomaly. That's sort of a vague command so I am kind of responding with a vague action i hope that's okay?

    Yeah, I know, but this is it.

    This is the end, and it came much sooner than even I expected.

    Gonna be honest, I was sort of hoping that Sokudo would fail his second attempt to rip the planet apart, because Sims was going to give you experimental nanosuits so you could essentially HALO-jump a planet to infiltrate the tower.

    But this pretty rad, too.

    One of the scenes I had in my head since the beginning of the game was a team of monks just falling through the atmosphere.

    Space monks darting around, dodging and deflecting enemy fire, flinging ships into each other.

    Gravity monks surrounding themselves with such a strong distortion that they can use their own bodies to pierce right through ships.

    Electric monks shaving off bits of their own nanosuit to use as ammunition for a finger-snap railgun.

    Those have been a thing since the very beginning.

    DE?AD is playing a space monk. Kro was playing a gravity monk (and was doing pretty damn well, I might add). Shabooty is playing an electric monk.

    Oh yeah, I'm probably not going to be playing, or even around that much after the 21st and until late june. I'll be on an island off Australia studying the great barrier reef. Depends on their wifi.
