You have the raven circle the building, looking for cracks in the walls or open windows. You find cracks, but none of them are large enough for the raven--you're not even sure the rat could fit through them. None of the windows are open, either.

You bring the raven back to the front of the building. The dust on the stairs suggests people walked through here, and something was... wheeled? Not dragged... it looks like two thin tire trails, like a dolly or hand truck.

You have the raven check further out. There's definitely signs that vehicles were here, at some point, but none of them remain.

You cut a piece of rope, and bleed into it. It takes slightly more blood to gain proper control of the rope compared to the same length in bandage.

You and Fuse rig up your blooded camera to provide a live feed to your computer inside the bunker.

You step out, and attempt to call Jury's phone again. Your raven doesn't hear any phones going off inside the building--however, it's possible (even likely) that Jury's phone was on vibrate.

Oh boy... this does NOT seem like good news. Something was wheeled in here? Like... LIKE JURY? >___>

*deep breaths*

Doesn't seem like she came venturing here alone. Was she kidnapped and wheeled here? What is this school being used to hide? D: I'm so worried now. Crap dangit.

Are Caius and Fuse still hopped up on level? Because I'm starting to think this MIGHT be an all-hands-on-deck operation after all. Though Dr. Finch can stay and watch the feed. >_>

Do we still have any ice cream left? Is it okay to give some to caius and fuse?

Just caught up today, I really love this webcomic!
Have a nice day!

Jury could have been compromised... or she compromised us. Either way, this probably means there's something down there that would be pretty unsatisfactory for our faction.

Rescue operation time. As soon as possible, before they crack her security measures.

Padlock and chains on the back door only likely means that X wheeled in here by Y only used the front door. Back door job for this one, quietly. Fuse can pick locks if remembered correctly, even if they're trapped.

after a long time of just not reading this, I finally have caught up. Holy shit.

anyway, someone wanna drop a link to the Discord server? The one that was like... 30 pages back seems to have expired.
Rufi, you may wanna update the fan page with a permanent Discord link.

Hey you! :) Welcome back! Here's a link to the Discord server - I will ask Mochi about how to link it to the fan page XD (or Mochi will do it herself -v- fufu)

Fanart rendition of the scene recalled by Caius on this page:


Caius. Michelle. <3

And then that someone also injected their grown garden with a test version of an eldritch creature's blood.

And might also have connected their plumbing to Hell.

Nice work as always. I understand vegetation is very tedious work.

@PurpleKetchup: One can indeed do whatever they want XD
@Blue_Elite: Thank you! <3 I think I got super lazy with this one to be honest XD I admit the low point for me was painting almost every blade of grass because I tried an auto-grass-brush but didn't like it. -v- Next time I'm going to come up with a better way XD

I guess have the raven do watch-work while we head out. Are we taking everyone except Dr. Finch so he can man the computer/camera?

I'm going to guess this'll be a Carpenter-style trap. Spooky abandoned buildings are his calling card. If we can last-minute improvise an EMP bomb (small scale, remember that Jury is a possible hostage) that could work wonders given his specialty. Otherwise a Molotov could be useful as well.

EDIT: Since dinner is delayed, Caius and Fuse can load up on ice cream before we go. XD
