E3S12 - Amphora Platform #3 - ???
Drilling Platform #3 is an enormous floating structure, anchored by paired underwater cables to fixed points on the ocean floor. The anchor cables run in pairs to the corners of the square floatation hull. A thick tube runs straight down from the center of the square and into the seafloor, surrounded by a series of smaller tubes that run parallel to it in a tight bundle.

The floatation hull appears to support a considerable superstructure, several stories tall, consisting of several "buildings" joined by steel mesh catwalks and asphalt-covered platforms. One side of the structure has a round area marked as a helipad. Painted boldy on one side are the words:

Amphora Energy
Drilling Platform #3


There is some activity on the catwalks; men in blue coveralls and yellow hard-hats are working, other men in white-and-black security uniforms appear to be standing guard.

[OOC: Tell me how you variously want to approach the platform.]

Amm-Fibian approaches in a water tank on a fancy black unmarked boat driven by High Detective Jones.
"Nothing like a day out on the sea, eh Detective?"

Ian:
Nate Jones' already-obvious scowl deepens. "I spend my nights on the sea, typically." And I'm damned if I'm gonna ask him where he got this boat. He thinks. Probably built it himself out of stuff lying around the marina... "Nothing like spending a day way out of my jurisdiction, you mean. I'm still not sure anything these people have done is technically illegal."

"Detective... There is no jurisdiction for truth."
Amm-Fib'ian smiles and begins looking for the others.

Time keeper sees the boat heading for the platform and changes direction taking angel closer to it so he can see who's on board.

When he recognised the two people on the vessel he pulls up along side and then does a quick sidestep and stops suddenly on the back deck placing Angel gently down next to Amm-Fibian and Detective Jones

Ty'daal cuts through the water, heading for the oil platform. Looking up he sees the boat moving along and soars upwards, glancing up at the occupants. Seeing his allies, he skims along the surface as a dolphin might providing escort.

Angelfish, Time Keeper, Ty'daal, Ian:
Above you, and on the opposite side of you from the drilling platform, toward shore, you spot the familiar colors of the DTN news chopper. It's inbound toward the platform at high speed--and it looks like two figures are dangling beneath it, hanging onto the landing skids!

One of them looks like Todd!

Todd:
Despite Karen Kwan's shouted instructions, the chopper pilot is unwilling to try to "shake you loose" when there's another DTN employee down there with you. He's maintaining a smooth and level flight--almost as if he's making it easier for you to hang on.

Your flight takes you out over Nimitz Bay, then northwest over open ocean for several minutes. You spot a drilling platform coming up quickly. Then you spot a small black power-boat of advanced design arrowing toward the platform--with several people you recognize aboard!

Amm-Fib'ian shakes his head.
"I really don't know why I bother sometimes."

Ian, Time Keeper, Angelfish:
Detective Jones squints upward, shading his eyes with one hand. "Is that Todd?!? What's he doing up there?"

Todd grins down at his colleagues on the boat, and calls out,"race you to the platform!"

The master of Time looked up as Tod issued his challenge. Knowing it was unseemly for heroes to do such things it was also a matter of reputation on the line.

With a guilty smile at Angel he jumped off the boat hitting the water running

Todd's grin fades as he sees Timekeeper sprinting ahead. I am so not going to win this.

To cheer himself up he gives the cameraman a little shake.

Angelfish watches as Time Keeper leaps over the side of the boat, and gives a mental sigh... Well, we need some distractions...

Leaning over the side, she motions to Ty'daal and begins typing,  NEED DISTRACTION    IAN AN I NEED 2 BREAK N     TRY 2 KEEP BOYZ FROM GETTING KILLED     WATCH OUT 4 SKATE


Without waiting for a response from the Last Warrior, she turns to Amm Fibian.  Where the heck did he find a fishtank that big?!

She begins typing again,  R NEW FRIEND TINKS AMFORA HAZ RECORDS   PROOF OF ILEGAL ACTIVITIES   NEED 2 FIND THEM  SHUT AMFORA DOWN 4 GOOD   THINK U CAN HACK SYSTEM
