You tell Liz that, going forward, if you knock you'll be using the secret knock you developed for Bunker A; you recommend that everybody else do the same.

Also, that if she needs to get away from Fuse and Lydia, or it seems like they uh... need some privacy, she's welcome in you and Michelle's room.

"Noted," she replies.

You and Michelle continue down the hall, using the secret knock on Caius and Dr. Finch's door. There's a bit of a wait... and then Caius opens the door.

"Hey," he says. "What's up?"

"We're just checkin' up on everybody," says Michelle. "Makin' sure nothin' weird happened while we were out."

"Nah," replies Caius. "We're all good here."

Michelle nods, fighting back a smirk. "Alright."

You update Caius that you're not going to be doing blood-checks for tonight, and that everyone should do the secret knock if they need to get anyone's attention.

"No prob," Caius responds. "L-- Dr. Finch is in tha shower, but I'll let 'im know when he gets out."

With that taken care of, you head to you and Michelle's room. Befitting the rest of the hotel, it is... a very nice room, with huge, ridiculously comfortable beds.

"It's gonna be nice sleepin' somewhere that ain't a government bunker," Michelle states, before adding "...full o' old scientist ghosts, and whatever else is hangin' in the air."

You comb through a couple of your newly acquired cat magazines, discovering breeds of cat you hadn't seen before. You try to hang in there, but your bed is just far too comfy--you are swiftly defeated, and fall deep into sleep.

What will you do tomorrow?

Do they have an omelette station for breakfast at this hotel? :D Oooh, or custom pancakes? Get a pancake with ALL the chocolate chips, and M&Ms, and blueberry syrup, and powdered sugar, and looooots of whipped cream~

Also do some chatting with Michelle about whatevs. Pity we didn't get to chat last night, I guess we were just too darned tired XD

Don't forget morning meditation! And a luxuriant shower using the tiny soaps and such~

Let's check what the group that was searching Illworth was doing, check how the tea party went, then go try and build a biomech.

THIS. We have time to have a leisurely breakfast with the group and everyone to chat about what they did last night and how great relaxing and stuff was first though.

-Sleep in, eat the best of brunches
-Check out any odd stuff to do in town, tourist attractions
-Get details on how the media campaign on Thale is working out,
-Deck communications, 'legal' items of interest they may be able to acquire, any upcoming cage matches (not to participate, at least not Yet)
- A good pursuit for Fuse would be to go to any computer shops or related see if there's any good tech in the area that is hard to get elsewhere and possible leg enhancements
-Michelle the same for if there's any armor or gun shops about.
-Finch and Mine to ye local pharmacies for potential new drugs and other medicines that would be helpful to blood replicate the effect of.
-Caius brainphone up Mav see if there's anything they would like, maybe tag Macland for some Southden cash transfers
-Check in on all animals, friends, blooded others

not sure about cybernetics, but there are definitely no guns in Southden, I remember when we first visited the town that the laws against guns were much stricter than the home city's, like not even law enforcement had them kinda strict

We get a good breakfast, check in with everyone, and prepare to head back to Bunker A, when we do get back there, let's tell everyone we're gonna level them slightly when we get to the actual bunker and do so so we're not hit too hard with post-vacation sadness. (The presence of the cute things might also help alleviate some of that)

on the way back, let's check on the Ilworth people and figure out how to get electricity running there, also check on the Ilworth ghosts maybe

Breakfast, get things in order and get back to the bunker (don't forget to get some sewing supplies for Edison before returning, if that wasn't among the random things purchased while touring Southden).

Then let's tackle attempting to reform Edison.
If possible, the first idea I'd like to try to do would very simply be having Faraday open up Edison's canister with Tesla and have us be nowhere in the area with Mini-Mine among Tesla's stuffed animals to monitor the situation. That way there are no humans for Edison to harm and Faraday and Tesla can have a pleasant conversation with Edison without fear of her getting violent.
If that's not doable, the next idea would be to release Edison into her containment room to try and negotiate through there with a ghost ritual all set up by the bunker door in case of emergency (so our body isn't sitting and vulnerable in the immediate area).
If focusing/relaxing wouldn't be possible in case of a stressful situation to cast the ghost spell, then just do the ghost spell inside bunker A and start the negotiations while already in ghost form.

Be prepared for a ghost group hug.

Cross stitch and embroidery kits. Get varying levels so some come with plastic "safety" needles.

Toys and coloring books and crayons too.

This seems thorough. Operation rehab is a go.

Eat the best breakfast options available, give everyone time time to get themselves together then go see what the Ilworth Gang have been up to/any idea they've had, before heading back to finally re-unite those tiny ghosts.

Yes, this. We've been a bit lax on this front since we learned about The Griz being held captive. We laser-focused in, but we still need to know whats generally going on. For Example, whatever became of Southern Pass (heavily armed mercenary group some politician called into the lower tiers - Jury and the Feds were keeping an eye on them, but could only act under certain situations)?

Get a nice breakfast in the morning; maybe do something nice for Michelle like get her breakfast in bed; I bet no one has ever done that for her. Use some of that time to talk to Michelle about what you may need to do in order to insure her body doesn't break down etc.

And then we get back to work.

Go by an fire extinguisher for when we put Edison in the containment room. Have a good breakfast and I have an idea about how to use the laser implant we got from bunker X. Put it in mini Jane. Think about it mini Jane can follow simple orders like protect this person or protect this door and maybe even follow this persons orders. Now with a laser she becomes mini assassin.
LiquidBacon 13th Jul 2018, 8:56 AM edit delete reply
while I aprove of this idea. She can't follow orders, she has enough of a mind to make giving order easy for Mine, she can't actually think on her own.

However a really weird idea is to try to make a mind that could follow orders like that, one that can actually think on its own. Since if we could make an intelligent being, we really would be a god

Fragments can't create true life, but mom's red seems seems pretty advanced. It's probably doable.
Skullrama 13th Jul 2018, 4:32 PM edit delete reply
Mom created Mine (with help from dad, presumably), soooo...

There are big ol' moral quandaries with making a mind that can think on it's own so that you can order it around - recommend we don't go down that path.

Also, if we're taking down the mini-bosses first, Ex-doctor Carpenter is next.
