The Supermarket
When you get there, the police have cordoned off the area around the supermarket, but seem to be unsure of how to procede. You can see Stardroid flying towards you and he'll be here soon.

Re: The Supermarket
Carapace landed near the police and walked over to them.  (No point in being too threatening!)

"So what's the situation here?" he asked.  "I think I can help.  At least, those beams don't look strong enough to hurt me.  Also, I've got more backup coming."

"About fifteen minutes ago, people in the supermarket started collapsing before they turned into whatever that is," the officer said. "Near as we can tell, they all had the same free samples."

"It seems this may be difficult," Stardroid said.

"Maybe," said Carapace.  "First thing is, let's find out what's going on.  I'm well-armored, so I can go in first."

And he cautiously headed into the market.

Re: The Supermarket
Stardroid followed. It was easy enough to get into the supermarket. You can see glowing figures in the isles.

Re: The Supermarket
One of the mutated people floated closer to you and was about to blast you, but it was interrupted by Stardroid who tackled it, causeing the blast to go wide.

Re: The Supermarket
"Man, are all these things just berserk?" asked Xavier, rhetorically.  He sprayed a cloud of choking gas at the one that had blasted him, trusting that Stardroid, being a space-traveling robot, would ignore it completely.

Area Fort-based Affliction 8, Impaired/Disabled/Incapacitated.

As the gas dissipated, he shouted out "HEY!  IS THERE ANYONE SANE LEFT IN HERE?"

Re: The Supermarket
As the gas clears, you can see that two of the mutants are down. One more closes in on you.

"Help me, help me, help me," it said over and over again as it blasted at you.
