Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
Rebecca squirmed to the end of her cell. "Not again... Please, don't fix me, I'm not broken..." Her pleas for Mercy were ignored like they were the rattling of a noisy air conditioner. A guard walked into her cell and dragged her out kicking and screaming.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
"If it's sick, she might spoil the others." The guard watched Lynn and his hand stroked his handgun. Another guard stepped forward and issued some orders. "Fine, we will take the Technopath to the lab, you take that one to the infirmary. Keep her in range of the nullifiers, don't need a screw up like last time."  Both Nodoroc and John had been around long enough to know the phrase. He 'infirmary' was an unfinished construction pit at the edge of the null zone where they shot mutants and let their bodies rot.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
Jonathan watched quietly as the guards and the doctor entered, scowling and letting a low growl as they started to ignore her, and forced himself to remain idle as poor Rebecca was dragged away; there was nothing he could do for her from here.  As the word "infirmary" popped up however, Jonathan slammed himself against the bars.

"No!  Don't you f***ing dare.  She's sick because you assholes are blocking her power - it blocks... whatever's happening to her now."  That was when the wind picked up.  Jon wrinkled his nose and cringed at the scent of death and rot from outside... but then he noticed something else.  He paused, and sniffed the air once more, trying to ignore the foul stench to sift through to... oh.  Oh, that could be very bad... or it could be very good.  But he couldn't do anything with it... not yet.  Not until he knew more.  He looked back to the guards.  "She may not need your "infirmary's" help if she doesn't get some actual help."

He didn't know what, specifically, her sickness was, but he did know that if she got taken out that door, she was dead - guaranteed.  He needed to keep her, and the guards' attention, in here.

One of the guards walk right up to the point he knew John couldn't reach. He watch him with a big smile. "I really really curious. How and when is my impending death at your hands going to happen mutt?" He laughes raucously voice echoing through the cells.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
Jon scowls as he leans against the bars, not bothering to reach out.  "I dunno, Old Spice.  Depends on how long it takes for me to slip this cage."

He narrows his eyes into a cold glare.  "It also depends on whether I've been holding any tricks back that you don't know about.  If my nose slips through your anti-power zone, who knows what else I might be able to do?"

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
A sound nobody in the cell area was expecting to hear, especially the guards was the scream of high efficiency ducted fans running at well above redline but that was suddenly the sound that filled the small area.  A grey and black blur streaked into the room moving with a degree of control that was almost supernatural.  Traveling at almost 60 mph it slammed into the back of the guard taunting Johnathan knocking him into the bars and easily within arms reach of the depowered mutant.  Reversing direction it shot back and up colliding with the head of a second guard.  Dropping straight down the shroud around the main fan peeled back exposing the blur of the counter rotating carbon fiber propellers.  It sounded like hamburger in a blender as the blades hit his wrist.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
It took Jonathan a few seconds to realize what had happened.  As soon as he realized that Old Spice was now within arms' reach, he bolted for the door, wrapping one arm around his neck, and using his other arm to grab as many weapons, possessions, valuables, and anything else he could get his hand on and threw them backwards into his cell.  Once there was nothing more to grab, he focused both hands around the sadistic guard's neck.  "You know what, on second thought?  I think I might know the answer to your question, now."

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
Noticing the nullifier, Joshua headed over towards it. He could turn it off, but he was under the impression that keeping it operational was key to helping the operation by not alerting the other silo's that this one was under attack until the last moment. However, he did have intentions of taking it with him when he left.

"Sounds like something to take care of upstairs. Let's check it out. Might be the prisoners causing a racket or the guards at least." suggested the youth.

He took the lead, acting as a shield for the others as he made his way upstairs. He was used to moving without so much noise as others, and as he rounded the corner he came face to face with a guard. Both Joshua and the guard were as surprised as each other, but the gun leveled at his hip didn't worry him. Josh reached out, grabbed a hold of the gun and quickly pulled the guard through the corridor and slammed him against the wall. The quick movement slammed the head of the man against the wall and Joshua took control of the gun. He wouldn't use it, but it was good a threat as any.

"One down, many to go." he mumbled, and he advanced to try the cell of Becky.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
Hunters in tactical gear swept into the room following the young man and the Terri copter that came seemingly out of nowhere. The mutants in their cells noticed that the constant nausea that permeated everything seemed to die down. Like having a drink of water for the first time in days.

One of the hunters placed a charge on the lock of Johnathan and Nodoroc's cells. "Stand back!" There was a bright flash and a burning hiss.

Outside one could hear the raucous sounds of gunfire and explosions. Suddenly one of the hunter's radio blared Havoc's voice. "You guys better hurry up. Grab the mutants and get them all to the extraction point."

"Come on everyone. We don't have much time." urges Joshua, and he motions for the people in the cells to move. His idea of returning via the tunnel was a good one still, and he could grab the nullifier on the way out for research purposes.

"Was there a young girl called Rebecca with you?" he asked, hoping to find the tech genius easily.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
Jonathan noticed the easing of that horrible feeling immediately.  Not wanting to waste time on the sadist any longer, he released his neck, and grabbed his head to slam it against one the bars as hard as he could.  He could finish this asshole off later.  "She just got dragged to the labs.  Ever since she got here, they've been focusing on her and all but ignoring everyone else - but there's a second cell wing.  We gotta get them out too before the guards there start shooting."

Jonathan looked back and grabbed a weapon of Old Spice's that he had thrown back into his cell upon first getting a hold of him.  He didn't bother to try to transform yet - not until he was away from this hellhole.  That feeling may have eased off, but he didn't trust their powers to be working just yet.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
With the shift in events Lynn abandoned her 'sick little girl act' and rolled quickly away from the others and then to her feet.  While she was sick she was nowhere as bad off as she had been acting.  She could only watch in sick fascination as a what appeared to be a small plane somehow managed to sever the hand of one of the guards causing his gun to fall to the floor.  Then things got really confusing.  More armed men rushed in but they seemed to be after the so called guards and doctors and they were opening up the cells.

Best yet, for the first time in days she could feel strength flowing back into her body, the nausea receded and a missed thrumming started up deep in her bones.  Drawing a deep breath she placed her hands together, concentrated and slowly drew them apart.  It took longer than normal but as spread them farther apart a blue crystalline staff grew between them.  When it was almost six feet long she stopped.

"Johnathan!"  Tossing the staff over toward him she again concentrated but this time she seemed to bulk up, the clothing she was wearing stretching tighter across her body as she began to grow crystal plates over vulnerable parts of her body and thick solid gloves around her hands and finally a helmet formed around her head.  All of the crystal soon began to glow with a steadily growing light.

The more crystal she produced the better she felt and the weaker the lingering effects of the nulifier seemed to become.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
Nodoroc stumbles to his feet, his hips crack as they unhing from their long time resting in the lotus position. He takes a shaky step forwards and staggers against the bars of the cell."We must not waste time, if they realize they're under attack, they might use aggressive measure to ensure they add the young woman's genetics to their database" He takes a deep breath and seems to strain himself when he exhales he disappears just on the other side of the bars. "I had thought... We'll have to walk, might I have a staff as well miss?"

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
Jonathan caught the staff, and looked it over, giving it a few experimental twirls.  "...Not bad."  He mused.  As Nodoroc spoke up, he thought for a moment and handed the staff to him.  "Here.  If our powers are working... I may not need it after all."  Setting the gun down, he cracked his knuckles, and transformed.  Skin gave way to fur, fingers to claws, human head gave way to that of a wolf.  The change took only a few seconds, but once it was done, Jonathan looked ready to tear someone apart.

He reached down, and picked up the gun once more - bravado was one thing, but the guards were going to be armed... and he wasn't stupid.  He spoke, his voice lower now, more akin to a growl.  "So we've got that girl Rebecca to save, and the other prisoner wing.  Who goes in which direction?"

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
While useing the main fan had been an effective way of disarming the guard it had also badly damaged the twin props  and caused them to become unbalanced.  Rather than dealing with the vibrations created Terri decided to just shut the fan down.  Unfortunatly this meant that she was now mentally supporting the full weight of the drone and she could feel the drain of it.  Once again she cursed the fact that she couldn't talk when O.O.B. and swore that she would find a solution someday.

Noticing the electric lights for the cell a crazy idea came to her and it was just stupid enough that it might work.  Floating over in front of Joshua she hovered in front of him and useing on of the small manipulaters tapped on his arm until she was sure she had his full attention.

HOLD

DRONE

TRYING

SOMETHING

STUPID

The word spelled themselves out one letter at a time on his chest, traced by the manipulator then then drone backed up a few inches and waited.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
Nodoroc leaned against the staff, snaking his good arm around the crystals for support. "The most sophisticated labs are located in the exact, center of the facility, they've put a lot of effort into making everyone believe it's an administrative level. I'm certain only a small group of their staff even knows what goes on there. But make no mistake about that place. Its guarded by admins: well dressed thugs who've learned to master stolen power."
He said. Talkin had become much easier, the subtle vibrations of the crystal were stimulating his atrified muscles.

"The other prisoner wing is directly opposite this one. They are not connected and if I remember a guard barracks is in between us. Each section has it's own elevator which is the only access and you need a living eye scan to activate it.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
"I don't know that I would be much good in a fight but if there is anything else I can do to help I will.  I'm pretty sure I could make some shields that would be bullet proof or if anyone else wants a staff or a knife?"  In spite of her offer to help Lynn backed up to her bunk  and sat down before the trembling in her legs became to obvious.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
One of the Hunters listened in on his headset. "I' don't really want to take some half dead muties with us in the fight. But Zero says they are throwing more guys at us and we have to hurry. There's no good choice here. These boys move with us."

He moved around some of his friends. He pointed over at Lynn then at looked over to the other mutants. "They still don't know what hit 'em, but the truth is, they got more guys than we do, and once that little bit of information comes into the light, we can expect a major counter attack. Get her up and moving." He was hoping either Joshua or Johnathan could get her on her feet.

"Gramps..." The Hunters was a tall man and he bent down a bit to get on level with Nodoroc. "You know the layout? Can you get us to the labs and the other cell block?" He then ordered one of the hunters to pick up Terri's inert drone.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
Terri had her consciousness leave the drone and enter the building itself. It was much larger than anything she had inhabited before and could only posses a limited portion. Further more, the shift of going straight from the drone into another body that was not her own was disorienting, especially so far from her real body. Right then, she couldn't make heads or tails of what she was seeing, but that was normal when inhabiting a new body.

After about a minute, she could start making the shape of the electrical system and the flow of powers throughout the complex. Relatively soon, she would be able to start to exert control over it, but if she were to try to early, she might risk getting thrown out.

"Alright then. Lead the way. I've no idea where I'm going, but I know what to do when I get there." replies Joshua, having been distracted by Terri somewhat. He hadn't figured out what she was doing, but he picked up the Terridrone anyway as he suspected it would be re-used at some point.

Following the old man, he prepared himself for what they were about to face. "Those shields sound great. Make one for each of us if you can and we can advance Roman style like a turtle. A bloody fast moving turtle though, as the longer we wait the harder things get."

Things were heating up now, just the way he liked it!

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
It took a few minutes for Lynn to produce the shields, each about 3 feet in diameter and roughly 3/8 of on inch thick.  By the time she was done she was  trembling and pale.  "I guess I'm not as strong as I thought."  she gasped as she sagged on the bunk.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
The head of the hunters pointed at one of his colleagues who put his weapon walked over to Lynn and carried giving her a piggy back. "Keep her safe Riggs." "Yes sir, c'mon you don't strain yourself, have to get you out of here."

Sands leads the Hunters to the next wing at the instructions of Nodoroc.

===> Move to Aug Lab 13 Labs. Player should take reasonable limited control of the Hunter Teams who cooperate to get the mutants out of that place.

Re: Aug Lab 13 Cells
Lynn squirmed trying to find a position where she felt secure without restricting Riggs' movement.  "Don't worry I've got your back."  As she spoke she slowly grew a light layer of crystal  across her back and around the sides until the two of them looked like a turtle from the back.  "You make a great Shukurae by the way."
