Ghosts in the Machine - Part II
Both sides are taken back as they come face to face with each other. Moving with a purpose in opposite directions it seems fate has decided to bring the stalwart companions back together.

[Private to Rael Gol: The only other door in this hallway that you have not explored is the door opposite where you found the Entropy Configuration. If you remember right, it is the door that Angrboda said is labeled "Cargo".]

Rael wave to his companions "Have you seen any troubles?" he asks then motion to the door Angrboda labeled cargo "I think this should lead us to where we need. No killing Viktor, we want to capture the mad ones or free ones if you take Angrboda words alive."

Berta breathes deeply to still her pounding heart as she lowers her raised blade.  "Troubles we've seen," she admits, "but thankfully they passed us by ... though the Mistress was not so lucky."

I know Rael, I am upset too that we didn't get to fight the evil spirits...perhaps we should chase after them?...pats Rael on the back and snickers a little...

Cirok was just as relieved to see their companions on the other side of the door, rather than some greenish apparition ready to prey upon them.  As the tension temporarily eased he glanced at Berta and winked.  "See?  This was the way to come."

"And what of you?" he asked of Rael, Viktor and Angrboda, thinking they might have had a more treacherous time of it.  "Did you spot any of these greenish ghosts?  Or have trouble with the rest of the crew?"

"No, I haven't seen any ghosts, except for the ones the computer thing showed me." Angrboda says, "We need to find our way down below decks and to a specific room."

Rael sighs and explain "We've been walking in circles... " he turn to Angrboda speaking softly "We are heading to where we were told the mad crew members are."

Turning to Berta and the others "You are welcomed to join us if the task with the apparatus if over."

"No, the apparatus still needs to be removed, but Mikki and a few guards are on that task now."  Cirok seemed a little sheepish about it.  "He really knows much more about it than I, and it's tied into the ship much more integrally than either of us had expected."

"He did suggest that to kill the ship we either need to find the brain, or the heart - the power plant is what he meant by that.  And he said there was a strong source of power in the bow, where the big skull is."
Cirok looked specifically at Angrboda, since the Melnibonean appeared to be the one leading the trio on their hunt.

"Is that where you are trying to go?"

"We did our best," Berta echoes the sailor, "though in truth Cirok did all the work.  Mikkl reckoned it ah, better" she manages to keep a straight face, "that we find you that we might assist you to kill the ship.  Though it'd be a kindness, moreover, I think it might be a necessesity if they are to remove the device."

"Oh, and Mikkl did mention that normal weapons had proved useless against the ghosts, back on the Mistress - though that ray of Kathrak's sufficed, and he believed that perhaps one of the gifts we took might prove similarly potent."

"If the path here presents difficulties, should we not try our luck above decks ?  Head to the bow and see if we cannot find our way down."

From down the hall you hear a somewhat familiar voice echo out the door. "Did someone say something of a computer? Better yet Why not try and get some friggen lights on? This damned blue emergency lighting sucks, crew must see in a different spectrum which is playing havoc with the color of these wires. Friggen red looks like black!"

Mikkl pokes his head out of the room that the Entropy Configuration was discovered in. "By the looks of things, you had to force your way into this room. Good chance the power to the doors is in the same place. I can cut this free eventually without power and fix it over on the Mistress so it is not like it is only in my interest." He gives a somewhat awkward smile and ducks back into the room.

"The computer," Angrboda says, still stumbling over the odd word, Is over in the room behind the middle door on the main deck." she says, happy to know at least someone believes her.  Turning to Berta she explains, "We have already checked the upper deck, it seems we need to get through this door here to get to the below decks." she says, pointing to the doorway.

"Figures," Berta remarks sourly. "We can't turn the power back on to the doors until we get to this power plant ... at which point we won't need to."

The warrior woman nods resignedly at Angrboda's words.  "That door there it is then."  Sheathing her sword she smiles at Viktor.  "You can help me try and force the door," she suggests.  "If it won't budge, then Rael and Cirok can fiddle with the panel."

Smiles and carefully sets down his crossbow and unleashes his mighty axe and smiles again like a kid in a candy store...takes the pointed end of his axe and tries to pry open the door...

"Hmm.. a plant of power... must be on the upper deck, most plants need sun light and wind..." Rael adds, he was not sure why the doors needed power or where one grow this special type of plant but so be it.

"Lets go finish below deck first, we have some mad ones to meet and than maybe Viktor could subdue some of them to quench his blood lust."

Happy enough to be agreed on a plan that should put them where they want to be, Cirok stepped clear of the door breach team and kept a close eye out for any more green goat ghosts or other would-be threats.

Rael points at one of the doors "I say we go explore this door..." [Private to GM: (door 1)]
