    “Okay you two fine chaps, jump into my arms!”

    Fernando doesn’t think he can hold them both up, but it gives them an obvious goal which hopefully can’t be misinterpreted.

    The two mechanical workers swing themselves in tandem, and then one after the other catapult themselves up over the catwalk ledge into your arms!

    [Give me a Defy Danger (+CON) roll to avoid getting a bit crushed under the weight of two flying automatons!]

    You straighten yourself, heaving your two attendants to their feet. You quickly survey the room and see Hawthorne on the opposite side of the chamber on your same catwalk, being menaced by several workers.

    Geth roll 2d6+1 for Defy Danger with CHA

    “Hello, I, who am very high rank, have come here to give you the new job as a supervisor to this...”, he waves vaguely all around, “Its good you’re finally here, the workers need your help. Walk with me.”

    “Everyone else, carry on, this...”, he waves vaguely all around, “Doesn’t run itself!”

    The plan is as Hawthorne as a supervisor they’ll back off... at least long enough for them to get ahead.

    Defy Danger with CHA:

    Through the Eyes of a Little Bird
    What here is not what it appears to be?

    There is a striking oddness here, at the top of the massive chamber. Your humanoid eyes didn't perceive it below, but now that you're in an avian form all color and light looks more intense, saturated, and different.

    When you first heard the large suited figure and Toth speak you assumed that was the Baron, that he had taken on some mechanical form. However, your avian perception lets you see it: a fog of glowing blue energy that permeates the chamber, thin in the air but concentrating itself around living things. Toth glows with an incandescence, and even the automatic soldiers surrounding her have a dim light of it surrounding them.

    The large suited figure, however? Only as brightly-lit as the surrounding metal warriors. It is then you realize that tendrils of that glowing blue fog extend outward from the astral engine itself to the imposing armored silhouette, twisting and moving in tandem with its unnervingly-graceful motion.

    It seems that the large armored figure is not, itself, the whole of the Baron!


    Fernando and Hawthorne

    Fernando, your commands seem to lose a bit in translation! The workers immediately following you stare down the small handful near Hawthorne, and suddenly there seems to be a standstill among the workers. If they were flesh and blood, you might be convinced that the two groups are arguing with each other, but here no words are exchanged. Only a trading of glances, and small micro-movements bounce back and forth between the two cadres; who knows what result they might reach?

    Fernando puts a hand on the back of Andy and Cher (they needed names, he thinks), and walks behind the group on his side towards his ally.

    “Andy, that’s you, get my grappling hook. We might need to help your new supervisor ascend to the next level...”

    Using up my only adventurer’s gear. If nothing stops us right now we’ll try to climb to the next platform (assuming there is enough of a gap that hanging on isn’t the only option).

    (gosh that seems like a lot of baddies. We need to deal with this blue fog stuff. Hmmm. Can I tell if the blue fog is coming from or connected to a central location?)

  • NipsNips Luxuriating in existential crisis.Registered User regular
    (As best you can tell, the blue light fog coalesces strongest to living entities, weakly around Automatic Workers and Soldiers, and also as an aura around the entire Astral Core. Aside from the tendrils connecting the large armored figure to the Core, the fog only moves along with the entities mentioned above.)

    Otto

    You quickly scan the room, looking for paths upward. The pulley on the far side of the room is still moving, though there are also more mechanical workers milling about in that direction.

    As you survey the room, you also notice the monolithic machine itself: all along its surface are pipes, fittings, outcroppings of parts, and a litany of levers and hand-sized holds. You gauge that you could easily climb the machine, though the ascent would be slower.

    Additionally, something else catches your eye: where the walkway you are on leads to the machine, the engine has a junction box of sorts. Numerous tubes, pipes, and conduits feed into this box affixed to the side of the great machine. Scanning the room once more, you notice that wherever a catwalk leads to the machine, there is another junction box.

    Otto, noticing the junction boxes, starts running through options. Looks like I can use the tubes and pipes and wotnot to get to the central machine, climb up the thing and use another set to get back to a catwalk. Slower, but a helluva lot safer looking that those damned pulleys, Losing an arm would be a serious detriment to performing my job.

    Otto starts making his way to the nearest box on the machine.

    Fernando discerns this reality by getting real discerning. He squints, and his two squires follow his gaze.

    “Yeup. This sure is”, he gestures all around, “all this.”
