While Fuse checks what he got from Howler's computer for viruses or spyware, and uploads it to Lydia's database, Dr. Finch steps outside to start checking Shirai's vehicle, weapons, and money for tracking devices.

Michelle steps out with him to call Lydia, and find out if Grizwald knows anything about the tunnels.

You spend a little time piecing together a drone out of your blood, a camera, twine, and miscellaneous debris.

You now have a camera robot.

"That's, uh... definitely somethin'," Caius chuckles.

It is not an especially agile little golem, and sort of wobbles when it walks. It works, though.

"Huh," Fuse says, still messing with the computer. "That's... not good."

"What?," Caius asks.

"It's the news," Fuse says, leaning out of the way so you can see the screen. "Wayhaven Penitentiary might have had some inmates go missing. The media's having trouble getting any details, I guess it's real hush hush--people pointing fingers and refusing comments. Lydia posted on her database that she's trying to look into it, but all she's gotten so far is that somewhere to the tune of three to five inmates just... disappeared overnight. Guards have no idea what happened and the surveillance might've been disabled. They're not even giving out the names of the inmates, though... prison staff are hoping it was just a paperwork screw up or something."

"Weird," Caius comments. "Think it's got anything to do with us?"

"Yeah," Fuse says. There's a pause before he adds, "Wayhaven's where Howler's supposed to be."

Woo, Camera Drone! Still say we should strap a blooded pistol to it, but good enough for now!

We should probably give it a name, too... Cammy?

Portal In Time
Someone in the Discord suggested Sanguine
I think that it's the perfect name for our new twine friend

Mmmmm... yeah I'm good with that. Lot more creative than what I had. Somebody go edit the fan page!

As small and wobbly as it is, the recoil from a pistol shot'll probably knock it off its rubbish legs.

We must assume until proven otherwise that Howler is free. Bioprinters are not safe again.

Good thing the only bio-printer we have on hand is the one bio-printer Howler could never ever hack into, huh. XD

(I don't care how goofy and old it is, it's our beautiful, untouchable bio-printer <3)

Where were our ravens again? Maybe we could send one to Howler's apartment, or Wayhaven, or both to scout around... We REALLY don't want Howler to get back to that computer in the secret room.

Also, let's send in the camera bot!

Hmmm... anybody think there's a way we can make it so that Sanguine can stick to wall or ceilings?

Go buy some dart gun type things you can load with blood.
Crayssius 1st Dec 2017, 6:11 PM edit delete reply
Seconded! Get multiple so our minion friends can inject people if we aren't there.
Morgenstern 1st Dec 2017, 9:26 PM edit delete reply
The party is, in fact, in possession of a dart gun already
Crayssius 1st Dec 2017, 10:36 PM edit delete reply
but we need more.

How do you remember these things? I have trouble remembering if I ate food on some days.
rufiangel 1st Dec 2017, 7:07 PM edit delete reply
Hmm... 3-5 inmates. I'm going to guess they're all mutants since the likelihood of that is very high when most of the criminals in this city are from the Lower Tiers. Looks like we may be getting a confrontation between old childhood friends, in time. ;__; Oh man.

I don't think we can do too much about it now, though we can certainly keep an eye out. Shall we go test out our camera robot and see what's in the blood plant room?

Ya, I'm thinking we should split up for now (we don't KNOW of any threats in the plant room).
If we need Fuse to setup the camera monitoring on Mars, have him do that and then let him get back into investigating the Wayhaven matter as he has a vested interest in that. Otherwise I'm thinking Caius as security, Dr. Finch if we need him to operate the camera, and ourself on Mars. Also don't forget to check Edison just-in-case.
Michelle can chill with Fuse in case he needs a driver really quickly (I feel she has had enough trauma from the Bunkers for now).
