Who

Central Disc [Plot]

High above the Town floats a ginourmous metal construct, the genius work of a singular mind. It is from here she plots her evil schemes! What are these schemes you ask? Time will tell.

----

The undead girl should find herself in a pitch dark room, if she has any sort of darkvision or something now would be the time to use it.
Cynical Circle

She has darkvision indeed; she looks around in terror, whimpering and twitching.
Who

She's in a completely featureless metal room, bar a door on one side. A slot opens at the top and a cheery voice rings through.

"Hello, anyone there? What did my toys bring me this time?"
Cynical Circle

She just sort of whimpers, shaking.
Who

The room fills with sterile light as the door slides open, the green haired girl from the screen earlier walks in, eyes lighting up as she sees the girl.

"Ooo, what are you?"
Cynical Circle

U-u-undead...
A letter-carrier...
Scared as heck...
Who

"Cybernetic graft on to a necrotic organism. That's genius! Who made you? I must know!"
Cynical Circle

I-I don't know my makers or anything... my boss didn't either...
She huddles against a wall.
Who

"You don't? Well that's dissapointing, looks like I'm going to find out more about you on the work bench then."
Cynical Circle

She puts her head between her knees and screams.
Who

Dei, for that is the girl's name, sighs. Walking over to try and drag her to her feet.

"This is so much easier when they're broke."
Cynical Circle

She is dragged to her feet, utterly terrified.
Who

She'll be dragged through a series of identical looking corridors.

"For the record, have you got a name?"
Cynical Circle

N-N-Nine... of S-Spades...
Who

Her captor squees girlishly as she tries to shackle her to a tool bench.

"That's a brilliant name!"
Cynical Circle

She is shackled, crying and shaking pitifully.
Who

"Oh cheer up, it's not like I can kill you is it? You're already dead."

She starts examining her cybernetic parts, trying to find a way in to their inner workings without damaging them.

"So what happened to Ace through Eight? Or is Ace high for these names?"
Cynical Circle

A-Ace is another position... I'm just a Count unit, not a Face unit...
Th-the others... they d-do other jobs...
Who

"Ooo this is so much fun! Be a pal and tell me how to open your cybernetics, I wanna see what makes you tick."
Cynical Circle

She, sniffling, points to various screws and panels and stuff.
Who

She grabs tools and very carefully starts opening the panels, peering inside.

"So did you die, become a zombie and get this stuff? Or did you have it when you were alive alive?"
Cynical Circle

They brought me back after they put this stuff on...
Who

"I see...possible arcanotech symbiosis. You're a marvel."

Anything of note as she's poking about in the cybernetics?

----

John's sawing pays off! He'll find himself in a rather cramped dark and humid room, humming fills the air.
Cynical Circle

Nothing really special.
Poor Nine is whimpering, terrified.
Obscurejones

John cycles through his pistols cartridges till he comes to one with a doodle of a Ram's horns on it.  Pulls a sunrod from his jacket and strikes it, taking a look around.
Who

It would appear John has broken through in that most terrible of places, the laundry room! The humming having been coming from a wonky looking tumble drier this whole time. The door's right in front of him if he cares to use it.

----

Dei's distracted from her work momentarily as a figure comes through the door, much like the drones that kidnapped Nine only stockier and with a lot more chrome.

"Minimal resistance encountered on the ground, future supernatural potential has been reduced by up to 94% in deployment zones."

"Good, prep battalions 2 through 16 to move in. We're going for the big push."

With a salute the creature marches back from whence it came and Dei goes back to work, singing merirly to herself as she does.

"I'm winning, I'm winning I'm winning."
Obscurejones

John ducks out into the hall and looks for signs of a control room.
Cynical Circle

Nine just whimpers quietly and tries to stay still.
Who

Unfortunately for John the place isn't exactly sign posted and there's the sound of metallic clanking coming towards him down the corridor.

----

Dei reaches over to the work bench, removing a particularly nasty looking saw.

"Now you might want to brace yourself. I'm about to remove your arm."
Cynical Circle

W-wait, my arm can come off without needing that!
She points to the bits that connect her mechanical arm to her shoulder.
Obscurejones

John runs in the opposite direction of clanging.
Who

"See! Cooperate and no one has to get there arm sliced off."

She starts carefully trying to disconnect the arm without damaging it.

----

John'll run past a whole mess of doors in his travels though the clanking quickly fades from hearing.
Obscurejones

He starts kicking in doors to see what's behind them.
Cynical Circle

The arm comes off very neatly!
Who

She begins examining it carefully.

"Now can you exert any kind of control over this?"

---

The rooms range from the mundane to the more bizzare, from a bedroom and a kitchen to stacks of unused robots and green glowing clone tubes.
Cynical Circle

She concentrates, it seems; after a bit, the arm twitches.
Obscurejones

John smashes the tubes and spare bots with cannon balls fired from his pistol.  He grabs a sandwich form the kitchen.
Who

Dei squeees girlishly again, having the hand up and down.

"Do that again!"

---

All is silent as he shatters the tubes and bashes the 'bots but the second he tries to abscond with a sarnie a loud klaxon blares out and loud clanking footsteps begin to converge on his location.
Cynical Circle

She concentrates again, really hard.
It flexes its fingers!
Obscurejones

John munches his sandwich and starts looking for anything enginey.
Who

"That is awesome! If I can expand that technology I can personally control my entire army!"

She turns her back on Nine and grabs some drawing materials off the desk, beginning to knock up a schematic of the arm, very much excited.

----

John's search for something enginey will be cut short as two mobs of drones appear from either side of the corridor.
Obscurejones

He fires a barrage of cannon balls at the drones.
Cynical Circle

Nine keeps flexing the hand, never having done that before.
Who

"And you have no idea who made you?"

---

The drones leap the projectiles, charging towards John and attempting to knock the wind out of him.
Cynical Circle

Not really...
She flexes more, feeling a little less scared now that she's discovered a thing she can do.
The Bushranger

Presumably Roland has gotten aboard?
Obscurejones

John's eyes go black and he moves in a dark blue blur, grabbing drones and swinging them into each other.
Who

"Shame I would love to have shaken his hand, then you know, killed him and ripped the knowledge straight out of his head while he was screaming."

Schematics done she begins reattaching the arm.

----

Of course he is! Cause I totally didn't forget about him or anything....heh....anyway yeah he's on board, not too far away from where John is actually.

----

The drone's separate and leap as he grabs them, leaving their bottom halves free to try and tackle him to the ground.
Obscurejones

He smashes the upper halves into the lower halves on his way towards the nearest shadow.
Cynical Circle

Nine winces.
What happens to me now, then?
The Bushranger

And so Roland follows the sound of the guns!

Or the smashing, as it were.
Who

"Dunno actually, you seem nice. Fancy a clerical position in my new utopia?"

---

I don't know how far John'll get in the smashing, the pieces have a nasty habit of exploding when they're destroyed.
Obscurejones

As long as there's a shadow within five feet he'll be fine.
The Bushranger

And Roland has to dive for cover from an explosion.

"Oi!"
Cynical Circle

Um... what would that be like?
I don't wanna have to hurt people...
Who

"Not at all, how do you feel about paper work?"

----

BOOM! Whatever shadowy shenanigans John has planned he better use them now.
Obscurejones

"John" leaps through the shadow, heading for the shadow nearest to a living creature, other than himself or Roland, on the ship.
Cynical Circle

Um... okay...
She shifts awkwardly.
Who

Dei spins round, grabbing a death ray of her bench as John appears out of a shadow.

"Who the hell are you!?"

---

With John vanished the drones turn their ire to Roland, scuttling towards him en masse.
Obscurejones

Viktor glares at her with his blackened eyes.
I'm a concerned citizen.  Who the hell are you?
Cynical Circle

Nine eeps, possibly toppling off the table.
The Bushranger

Roland, meanwhile, grins ferally.

"Target-rich enviroment. I like it."

And he commences blazing away!
Who

She's more than welcome to topple.

"I am this worlds saviour, what business of it is yours?"

----

The little scuttling bastards seem rather adept at dodging his fire, but still a few inevitably get caught up in the blast as the try and knock him to the floor and deliver a rather nasty electrical shock.
Obscurejones

Viktor smirks and fires a cannonball at Dei's head, shooting from the hip.
The Bushranger

Just as they reach him, Roland taps his amulet, sending a blast of that disrupting energy at him.

...inside the ship.

This might have not been his brightest idea.
Who

The ship is actually protected against that sort of thing, she's crazy not stupid. On the bright so though the drones drop to the ground, twitching spasmodically.

-----

Dei throws herself to the side, her deathray crackling in to life and launching a blue stream of energy at Viktor as the cannon ball impacts with the wall.
Obscurejones

He likewise leaps to the side of the ray.  Looks around the room for anything important looking.
The Bushranger

One might presume Roland hears the sound of the guns?

He heads that way!
Who

There's just the work bench and masses of tools in there, also Nine she probably looks important. In the midst of this looking Dei opens fire once more probably just in time for Roland to see it!
Cynical Circle

The confused, terrified undead girl peeks over the work table, then ducks down again with an eep.
Obscurejones

Viktor ducks the second blast and makes a run for the undead girl.
The Bushranger

Seeing Viktor heading for the girl, Roland draws...a second energy revolver?

Guns akimbo!

Aimed at Dei!

Uncaring of incoming fire!

BLAM!
BLAM!
BLAM!
BLAM!
Who

"Gah!"

Dei hits the deck, quickly returning fire. Giving Viktor ample time to do whatever it is he does.

"How the hell did you get here?!"
Cynical Circle

Nine just cowers, wanting the loud noises to stop.
Obscurejones

Viktor stops next to nine and holds his gun to her head.
Come out with your hands up!
Hey, it might have worked.
Cynical Circle

If he's talking to Nine, she actually fails on her first try to stand. She's shaking so much she literally slips and falls while trying to get up.

If he's talking to Dei, she just cowers.
Obscurejones

Talking to Dei.
The Bushranger

"'Hell' had nothing to do with where I came from," Roland says levelly, advancing on where Dei dropped. "However, if you are indeed the one responsible for the deaths of the people of the Town, it is where I will be sending you."

...he's matter-of-fact and almost polite.
It's probably scarier than if he sounded angry....
Who

You know he's being shot at right?

Anywho, Dei quickly gets to her feet to face the interlopers.

"Go ahead kill her. I'm too close to my utopia to let a little death stop me now!"

That done she resumes trying to but holes in Roland via the medium of deathray.
Obscurejones

Viktor sighs and fires at Dei.  No need to hurt Nine if she's not important.
The Bushranger

Roland doesn't care. Even as he's being hit, nice charred holes appearing in his...body armour?

Well, he might be crazy, but he ain't dumb!

"You have chosen...poorly."

...and the death-rays start burning through the body armour just as he snaps up both guns and blasts at Dei as well.

BOOM-BOOM
Headshots!
?
Cynical Circle

Nine hides under the table. If she were capable of doing so, she would have lost bladder control in fear.
Who

See! Being dead has it's advantages, speaking of things that are dead Dei takes those shots clean to the head. Though they don't so much drop her as cause her to stumble back, harsh white light beginning to emanate from her.

"Guards!"

Several drones, much larger and solidly built than the others they've encountered, charge in to the room. Opening fire with much smaller death rays of their own.
Obscurejones

Viktor dives behind Nine, reckoning that the dead need not fear death rays.
The Bushranger

And Roland...

...spins around, still firing at Dei, behind him, without looking Shocked, as he opens fire at the incoming drones with the gun in his other hand - amulet still recharging -  shouting to Victor as his body armour continues burning away under the death-ray assault.

"Take the girl and go!"
Obscurejones

Viktor dutifully puts a hand on Nine and falls back into her shadow, taking them both back to the ground.
Who

These drones seem much more effective then the last, upturning a table to use as cover and returning fire. Dei does much the same, but without the cover bit.

"Shoot all you like. I told you death wouldn't stop me!"
The Bushranger

"No, but what about the destruction of your ship?" Roland suggests, now doing a back-flip out of the line of fire, landing behind another table - smouldering. "Because I am giving you one final chance to surrender before I do so!"
Cynical Circle

Nine is brought; she keeps shaking and huddling in fear for a while.
Who

His cover'll be quickly eaten away by deathray blasts from the drones.

"Destroy this ship and it'll leave a crater below. If I die I'm taking hundreds of people with me!"
The Bushranger

"It seems to me that you already have."
And as the cover is eaten away, Roland lunges -

-straight for Dei.

Attempting to tackle the mad scientist!
Who

Dei drops as he tries to tackle her, attempting to grab him and throw him in to the wall behind her.
The Bushranger

Roland is grabbed...and grabs Dei's arms in turn.
So as she throws him into the wall...it's entirely possible he takes her with him.
Who

Hopefully however he should take the brunt of the impact as she tries to wrestle free from his grasp.
The Bushranger

He does!
But, being a demigod, it doesn't seem to phase him too much...as he tries to use Dei as a human(?) shield agaisnt the death rays!
Who

The drones ceasefire as Dei's held in front of him. She struggles, trying to snap a leg back and kick him in the crotch.

"Let me go you buffoon!"
The Bushranger

Claaaaaang!

Seems he's wearing protection, being wise to that trick!
He does wince, though, and his voice goes up a few octaves.

"I will let you go...if you undo what you have done to the people of this town!"
Who

"What? Cleansed them? That's not something you can just undo."
The Bushranger

"Killed them. And if you can't why should I allow you to live!"
Oh dear, the demigod is getting angry... Shocked
Who

"I know you wont. You're as bad as the rest of the unnatural filth."
