You decide to make preparations tonight, and hit Bunker X in the morning. Whatever the first floor offers as a prize could no doubt be useful taking on Hope's church.

You all eat dinner. You work on more bone armor, while the others work on trading up bandages for reinforced bandages.

You send one of your rats toward Hope's church. You also send the raven that was at Zene's house toward the same church--leaving one raven still with your hummer, and the last raven on its way toward the Site 1 location.

You check on the blood vial you gave Grizwald--however, you can't tell where it is. It's dark, and you don't hear anything.

Once everyone's fully equipped, you hug Fuse... and you head to bed.

The next morning, you all wake up early and eat a big breakfast. Caius and Fuse grab handguns, and Michelle grabs a handgun in addition to her minigun. You load reinforced bandages into your first aid kit. Everyone puts on their bone armor. You're well rested, and thus can join the team in the bunker without issue.

If there are any other preparations you want to make before your group enters the first floor of Bunker X, now is the time.

Give bab red a little smooch on the forehead(?)

Deliver leftover pizza to the Mars Folks

Take a handgun for ourselves, along with the syringe gun just in case.

Smooch Bab' Red AND deliver suitably cheesy action-movie one-liner. My recommendation: "Whatever is in Bunker X is about to be X-tinct."

Make a card for Mars and write the door code on it. Tape it to the inside of the toilet tank.

Make one of those expendable meat golems? I'm assuming it'll be completely worthless, but IF there is an actual exploration part/traps, might make good meat fodder.
Worse comes to worse we just leave it behind (or we'll be 1 golem closer towards trying out another Mini-Jane/Mini-(Insert Teammate Here) ritual).
We're going to experiment using our telepathic and red abilities inside (see if "outside interference" is blocked or not) so maybe not necessary.

Good idea. Better still practicing moving red in a controlled manner, then we can just make golems as we need.

Good idea, we need 1-3 Meat Golems XD.
But, if we can make them quickly, maybe it's better to make them in the moment rather than carring them all the way until we need them.

Good chance for practice! We probably want 1 right away anyways.

-Take a handgun and your Blood-Gun with you.
-Prepare some injections of your Blood and give one to everyone who is going to Fight in Bunker X. (In case they need to Fight in close-range)
-Give everyone a meat-ball of medium-small size to make things of bone in the moment if they are needed.
-Put Finch and Liz in Stand-By to Check information in the Internet and in Geoangular Control the moment we need it. And Finch must be prepared to Synch to give us his knowledge.
-Let's destroy Floor 1 XD.

(Damn, it would be good to had hand grenades. They would be really usefull for this XD. After this, wee need to get some.)

This is unrelated to Bunker X. I was thinking about the brain problem, and wondering if Thale himself hasn't given us a solution. After all the tinkering we did to remove Nil, we must have a pretty good understanding of how our brain is meant to be structured. If we simply built a second, temporary brain within our own body, like Thale did to Elizabeth's arm, we could house our consciousness there as we repair our original brain.

...That's an interesting idea...
I think it's worth consideration XD.

We already do have a secondary body.. We have Baby Jane.

I guess, when the first floor of Bunker X is over, we could switch bodies with the bab, fix the brain while it poses no risk to us, then switch back? That would be neat.

"... The golem has tiny hands, an identical dress, and... what seems like some very simplistic brain activity. Perceiving through her, you think you can give her fairly basic commands (like you have cats and ravens), rather than having to babysit her like you did previous golems."
The brain in Mini-Jane is around animal-level intelligence. It might not work to try and cram an entire person's intelligence/personality in it. Thus why Cuttlefish is suggesting a brain specifically.

I was thinking we'd solve this matter by just building up confidence, just willing our brain to be fixed, and never look back at the matter again. As long as we honestly believe we've fixed our problem, there is no problem from my understanding of our abilities.

I mean, does it have to be our own brain? Can we use our blood-friends' brains to hang out in for a bit, spread out (but not too thin)?

Don't forget to find the syringe of blood Grizwald has and percieve through it, then decide if we can communicate.

An extraction will be significantly easier than a rescue even against the same general foes.

Maybe we can try to enhance the rest of the team, like we did Caius before his cage fight. It would certainly help in case we go toe to toe with some creature that spews bullets. Our glass cannons would be able to duck out of the way at least a little bit faster.
