Day 6: It Lies In Wait
Quote:
I don't think anyone in our party got much sleep - not when we had the task ahead of us at the front of our minds. We knew what we had to do, to save the little dragon eggs that did not ask for this fate, but we were not sure we were brave enough to do it...

We all stared down on the creature from above. It would take all three of us, at the peak of our abilities, to take it down. We didn't know if we could do it, but we had to try. There was no use waiting any longer.

Standing all together, ready for action, we planned to jump in 3... 2... 1...

Nimbogenitus dove straight for the creature's eyeballs, weaving in and out between the swatting tentacles and clawing them to pieces, one by one.

Polynya spiraled around the room, dodging the flinging tentacles and distracting the creature while the others attacked. With each opportunity, she slashed at a tendril, severing it and leaving the creature more and more vulnerable.

Staccato flew in circles around the creature's head, hitting it with lightning bolt after lightning bolt. The electricity jolted through the monster's body, causing it to shake and shudder, distracting it and preventing it from attacking with full force.

Now that the creature was weakened, Polynyadove down into the head of it, burrowing inside to go for the brain. At first it shook and flailed, and then it let out the most bloodcurdling scream we had ever heard before bursting like a balloon full of grey sludge. Exhausted from the fight, we each stood up and looked at each other. We were all coated in the goo, but we were all alive. And the monstrosity was not.

Having witnessed the demise of their queen, the smaller creatures all scattered into the darkness. We did not chase them, for we were too tired - and we had gotten what we wanted, a chance to rescue the creatures trapped in the monster's hoard. Before running to search the nests and find out what waited for us, we needed to rest.

We all tipped over in the sludge, not even caring where we rested so long as we did so. Just a quick nap, that's all we would be taking...

Ominous title... dear God.

We couldn't do it. Maybe we were cowards, or maybe we just valued our lives too much. Either way, we all knew that if we died in this cave, what would be the point of our adventure? We needed to bring back what we learned to our clans. And then, we can come back here with a larger party.

Feeling just the slighest bit guilty, we spent the rest of the day heading back towards the surface. When we had gone as far as we could, we ate our meal, logged our activities, and slept. Perhaps we were not the heroes that we had dreamt of being, but at least we had our lives and the knowledge we got along the way. There was always next month...

Silly dragons. Didn't you notice SaturdayLemon's dragons looking down from the other side of the hole? You could totally take out that monster!

We did not rest as long as we might have as we were filled with excitement and anticipation at our new discovery. We awoke, immediately hopping to our feet to explore this machine further.

Having done our preliminary survey yesterday, we began to draw out the area in as much detail as possible. Each of us took clipboards and walked through every corner of the room, writing down everything we could so that we could take it to the surface with us and show everyone what we had found. We had come to the conclusion that this thing was some sort of power source, or generator, judging by all of the wires that led out from it. We were not sure exactly how it worked, but one part of the machine seemed to be producing the dust out of the ice in the surrounding areas and another part of the machine seemed to be converting it into electricity.

Neutrino spent hours poring over everything in the room, before finally turning to us and announcing that he believed he may know how to turn it on and operate it.

Neutrino moved over to a control panel and began hitting buttons and levers. The machine started to hum louder and louder, and the lighting in the room flickered on. It was working! It was making electricity out of ice!

The machine began to hum with power - and it soon began moving faster and faster and faster and faster! It was going too fast! The machine was shaking and rumbling, the ceiling and floors were starting to crumble, and it looked like it might explode at any second! We needed to shut it off and NOW.

Neutrino began to frantically hit buttons and levers, hoping that one of them would shut the thing down. Just when we were about to jump ship and run for our lives, the machine became silent, the lights turned off, and it was dark and quiet.

Breathing a sigh of relief at the silence of the machine, we went back to taking notes such that we could reproduce the machine on the surface. While we did so, we began to collect some of the dust to test how it works - when we realized something peculiar. The bag in which we had collected the dust began to move and wiggle, coming to life! It floated up into the air and looked at us with its two big eyes and one big mouth.

...

...

Okay, this was weird.

But we can make use of this.

We realized all at once why this powder was familiar to us! It seemed to be made of nearly the same stuff that all those strange mimics that came out every winter were covered in. Perhaps there were other generators much like this one, buried beneath the earth and abandoned by people past, that were responsible for all of those creatures.

When we had finished gathering everything we possibly could on the dust, the generator, and its strange effects on inanimate objects, we began to make our way back to the surface. When we had gone as far as we could, we ate our meal, logged our activities, and slept.

I guess it's the end 0.0
gg team
and yay, my hunch about the dust factory/extinct (or iS IT???) human race has a little more support :^D

i've also noticed how my day 6 seems a lot more peaceful than others...

Calpurnia dove straight for the creature's eyeballs, weaving in and out between the swatting tentacles and clawing them to pieces, one by one.

Caesar spiraled around the room, dodging the flinging tentacles and distracting the creature while the others attacked. With each opportunity, he slashed at a tendril, severing it and leaving the creature more and more vulnerable.

We all continued to attack, trying as hard as we could, but we grew more and more weak and wounded, and it just kept fighting. It was so strong, and soon, in a moment of hesitation, we found ourselves scooped up one at a time and dropped into a prison of ice. We were so weak and hurt from fighting that we could barely stand, let alone break our way out of the thick, frozen stone walls. Collapsing into a pile, we only wished that we had spent a bit more time preparing.

Eventually the world around us faded as we slowly froze. In those last few moments, we had thought that we would be trapped forever - but, if that were the case, you're probably wondering how you're reading this.

Wow, good job dragons (JK). Basically they encountered some tentical thing, and they decided to attack it but ended up failing. We got scooped up into a prison of ice. We collapsed ad basically faded to...Sleep?? Well, we were slowly freezing.

Day 6-curiosity killed the what now?
I was woken early by the sounds of whirring and clanking, to find that the spiral was already up and pushing buttons, and the Guardian drawing.
The Guardian says the dust is made from ice. And that the process generates electricity.
The spiral, she then shouted she had figured out how to operate the machine.To show us, she pulled a lever.
She almost killed us all.
The machine, it sputtered, whistled. It bent, twisted and glowed red as it began to overheat and static filled the air. My hairs stood and the other two shivered.
Then the ceiling and floor began to crumble.
The Spiral, she tried to switch off the machine, but it was to no avail.

We had to flee.

Through the crumbling caverns, the Spiral led us through the falling debris. Then the machine exploded.
We would likely never know the full extent of the secrets that the machine had offered, at least not now. There was nothing to do but make our way back up to the surface.

We would not be coming home with the technological revolution we had seen, but someday we could come back better prepared.

..I deem this journey a failure though. We lost the Guardian's notes.

Ahh I'm a day behind on posting adventures but I have both my day 5 and 6 logs [center][img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/116943/11694247.png?mtime=WIgDRAACP6Q.png[/img][img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/166435/16643491.png?mtime=WH186wACXm8.png[/img][img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/81786/8178578.png?mtime=WH19NQACNDs.png[/img][/center] Team Pumice had spent, what they assumed was, a few days exploring the caverns for further clues as to what the heck was going on. During one particular "night" when they were too tired to even chat much, Alcor noticed a soft noise. When he brought it up to the others he described it as a very quiet wind or almost like a breath. When Matte and Charlie actively listened for it they started to hear it too. "Should we follow it?" the Mirror asked. They decided that trying to follow the sound would be their best course of action, as it was their first new lead in a while. But later, after they had slept. The strange dust didn't seem to get any thicker as they walked the next "day", but it certainly wasn't thinning out either. Without some clear indication of heading towards a source the team constantly ran into dead ends and had to backtrack. Matte started to get frustrated with the continued lack of progress. "Why couldn't one of us have been a species with better hearing?" she muttered as they turned around yet again and trudged on, "Or a Wind dragon?" No one responded to her. Matte tended to lash out when she was angry and neither of them wanted to be on the receiving end of that. After trekking in silence for a good few minutes Alcor tentatively said, "Hey, I think I can hear it getting louder." The Tundra sighed, "No, Alcor, I know you're just trying to make us feel bet-" she stopped as she realized they had come to a large cavern. The sound [i]was[/i] louder there, almost echoing, accompanied by a low whir. Looking across the space all of them could see the dust drifting up lazily from the floor. It came from openings that looked like- "Vents!" Matte shot across the room to examine one of the vents closer. Charlie snorted at her sudden enthusiasm, looking on as the Tundra practically shoved her face into one of them. "They're mechanical," she said looking up. "We need to go deeper into these caves." As much as they all hated it, they were back to following the distant noise again. This was of course paired with dead ends and backtracking for hours. Matte's good mood evaporated quickly and she was soon back to being huffy and frustrated. As tense as they all were, Team Pumice knew that they still needed to press on, that the journey had to come to some kind of a conclusion and they would find it. After many, many hours of walking and sore claws they finally found their answer. The three dragons stopped in the entrance of the newfound chamber, awestruck. "Oh my gods," Charlie breathed. "What in the name of the Earthshaker [i]is[/i] that?" Matte started forward into the chamber, not taking her eyes off the center. The floor was smoother than natural rock and the walls were coated in metal, clearly not a natural formation. But the center of it all was a large machine, a huge cylindrical chamber with pipes coming out of it, most going up, surrounded by more intricate parts, clearly running and glowing softly. All around it were runes that none of the dragons could decipher. The whole thing was slowly being consumed by creeping ice. Team Pumice knew that they would have to spend a long time in this chamber to fully unravel its secrets.

[quote]We had just drifted to sleep when we awoke to cold, wet feet and the sound of water. Quickly standing up and shaking ourselves off, we noticed that water was slowly pouring into our icy prison, filling it up. It was far too cold for it to have melted here, so the only thing we could think was that the monsters were dumping water into the little box where we were trapped... WAIT. The mutant creatures were going to turn us into a great big dragon popsicle. This was very bad and we needed to get out NOW. As the water slowly began to fill our prison, the first step was to avoid being frozen by the water. Caeronwy, along with the rest of the group, desperately clung to the ceiling to avoid getting wet. Now that we were safe from the cold waters, we needed to get out of this prison. Turi, standing on the shoulders of her companions, used all of her strength to push the boulder out of the way, allowing us to slip out into the passage above. We jumped out the hole into the passage and began to run away from the nest chamber as fast as we possibly could. We paid little attention to the creatures chasing us, or even where we were going, we just knew we needed to get the heck out of here as soon as possible! Our unfamiliarity with the passages soon came to haunt us as we found ourselves cornered at a dead end. Looking closer at this dead end, it seemed to be made of solid ice - and it was quite thin. There was water on the other side of the ice and, although we had no idea where it might lead, it could allow us to swim to freedom - and it might just flood the nest in the process, depending on how much water there was, that is. Turi bashed against the wall with all of her might, over and over. The ice began to crack and shatter, and soon the water came pouring out with incredible force. Clinging to the walls to avoid being swept away, we leapt into the new area, praying that we could navigate the waters to freedom. The water rushed around us and we swam as hard as we possibly could, heading upwards with all of our energy. It was oddly warm, like a hot spring, and despite our worries that we would fail or be caught, we managed to navigate to a passage at the surface. We were finally free. Free at last! We moved as fast as we could upwards, trying to make our way as far away from the nests and strange creatures as we possibly could. When we could flee no further, we curled up, exhausted, to rest.[/quote] so today was interesting. i kind of wonder why the water was warm..? [quote]Turi, standing on the shoulders of her companions[/quote] note that turi is an imperial and both her companions are mirrors. she is 5,875.17 kilograms heavier than both of them combined. that's 12,952.53 pounds heavier for americans. she crushed them beneath her feet. how did she even stand on their shoulders specifically? she's an imperial! she's like 29 meters long! acalen is maybe five but i think closer to four meters. she flattened them.

It was far too cold for it to have melted here, so the only thing we could think was that the monsters were dumping water into the little box where we were trapped... WAIT. The mutant creatures were going to turn us into a great big dragon popsicle. This was very bad and we needed to get out NOW.

As the water slowly began to fill our prison, the first step was to avoid being frozen by the water.

Caeronwy, along with the rest of the group, desperately clung to the ceiling to avoid getting wet.

Now that we were safe from the cold waters, we needed to get out of this prison.

Turi, standing on the shoulders of her companions, used all of her strength to push the boulder out of the way, allowing us to slip out into the passage above.

We jumped out the hole into the passage and began to run away from the nest chamber as fast as we possibly could. We paid little attention to the creatures chasing us, or even where we were going, we just knew we needed to get the heck out of here as soon as possible!

Our unfamiliarity with the passages soon came to haunt us as we found ourselves cornered at a dead end.

Looking closer at this dead end, it seemed to be made of solid ice - and it was quite thin. There was water on the other side of the ice and, although we had no idea where it might lead, it could allow us to swim to freedom - and it might just flood the nest in the process, depending on how much water there was, that is.

Turi bashed against the wall with all of her might, over and over. The ice began to crack and shatter, and soon the water came pouring out with incredible force. Clinging to the walls to avoid being swept away, we leapt into the new area, praying that we could navigate the waters to freedom.

The water rushed around us and we swam as hard as we possibly could, heading upwards with all of our energy. It was oddly warm, like a hot spring, and despite our worries that we would fail or be caught, we managed to navigate to a passage at the surface.

We were finally free.

Free at last! We moved as fast as we could upwards, trying to make our way as far away from the nests and strange creatures as we possibly could. When we could flee no further, we curled up, exhausted, to rest.
so today was interesting. i kind of wonder why the water was warm..?

note that turi is an imperial and both her companions are mirrors. she is 5,875.17 kilograms heavier than both of them combined. that's 12,952.53 pounds heavier for americans. she crushed them beneath her feet. how did she even stand on their shoulders specifically? she's an imperial! she's like 29 meters long! acalen is maybe five but i think closer to four meters. she flattened them.

Day 6, we beat the monster but went to sleep in the slime puddle remains because, why not, it's only a filthy disgusting slime carcass puddle. Yuck!! :S But the only difference with my log that I've seen so far is how Ptolemy beat it, with alchemy- [quote] Ptolemy, a handful of potions in hand, began to fling them at the creature while diving about the room. Each splash of the acidic liquid melted at the creature, turning it to a soft goop and making it more and more vulnerable.[/quote] I love him :) But Sky is NOT a fighter. sincerely suprised to see her burrowing into the heart of a slime monster, just look at her- nevertheless, GO SKY!

We did not rest as long as we might have as we were filled with excitement and anticipation at our new discovery. We awoke, immediately hopping to our feet to explore this machine further.

Having done our preliminary survey yesterday, we began to draw out the area in as much detail as possible. Each of us took clipboards and walked through every corner of the room, writing down everything we could so that we could take it to the surface with us and show everyone what we had found. We had come to the conclusion that this thing was some sort of power source, or generator, judging by all of the wires that led out from it. We were not sure exactly how it worked, but one part of the machine seemed to be producing the dust out of the ice in the surrounding areas and another part of the machine seemed to be converting it into electricity.

Augustine spent hours poring over everything in the room, before finally turning to us and announcing that she believed she may know how to turn it around and operate it.

Augustine moved over to a control panel and began hitting buttons and levers. The machine started to hum louder and louder, and the lighting in the room flickered on. It was working! It was making electricity out of ice!

The machine began to hum with power - and it soon began moving faster and faster and faster and faster! It was going too fast! The machine was shaking and rumbling, the ceiling and floors were starting to crumble, and it looked like it might explode at any second! We needed to shut it off and NOW.

Mnemeth began to frantically hit buttons and levers, hoping that one of them would shut the thing down, but it only made things worse. As the machine shook more and more, we realized that we needed to get out of here right away. We grabbed our bags and ran as fast as we could!

As we were just about to escape the room, the caverns around us began to crumble and break apart.

Mnemeth flew up into the air, guiding us as we weaved between falling boulders through the passageways. But just before we could get far enough away, an explosion went off behind us. The entire caverns collapsed around us and a trench opened up beneath us, sending us spiraling down into a cold, thin, icy trench with rubble falling on top of us. We soon found ourselves buried in ice.

We spent a few hours struggling, slowly growing colder and colder, but we were trapped and unable to move.

Eventually the world around us faded as we slowly froze. In those last few moments, we had thought that we would be trapped forever - but, if that were the case, you're probably wondering how you're reading this.

This is what happens, when a medic- with severe concussion from bad luck on day 1- tries to operate heavy machinery. Do not operate heavy machinery while on medication, kids! :P And Mnemeth, trying to help- Mnemeth love, you're our heavy artillery, not on for your engineering skills- no wonder you broke it. Good attempt at a rescue, but the explosion... at least the monster died under the rubble, I hope...
I guess it's game over...?
(I don't see how they're getting out of this one alive!)
