Explosive toxic waste
Played on April 6th, 2008
As told by Zuka
23.M41 Day 36
Still confused about the missed shot I start aiming again. I notice that
Ravian runs to the entrance of the church, so it's safe to fire again. Just
at the moment that i pull the trigger the flow of blood from the beast's arm
gets in my sight and the shot misses him. *Sigh* The emperor is not with me
Before i can shoot again i hear a very loud scream, and i see a leg flying
through the church, and a few seconds later another one. I start aiming at
the last beast, only to fire if things go really wrong and it's worth the
risk. But the others finish him easy and soon all beasts are not much more
then intestines, blood and body parts on the ground.
After Novus is done with searching the parts on the ground for any
technological devices, i help him together with some others to search the
church, since he is the only one with light. We find the body of Vharna, one
of Cortez' team members. She is dead. In the rest of the church some more
body parts can be found, probably belonging to the rest of the team.
Scarlet has the idea to make a fire from wood from the church' door and
put all the bodies (parts) of Cortez' team on it. Since it seems she can't
be talked out of it, i decide to help some. Not that i like the idea of
destroying this church even further, but Arquis said it was lost to evil
Meanwhile Ravian and Arquis search the surroundings and tell us they
found a large pile of toxic waste, which they think is the source of this
all, and that they want to set it afire. Ravian takes a piece of wood from
the burning corpses and walks to the toxic pile. Since i've noticed some
movement in the huge pile, i aim my long las on the pile ready to shoot
anything that comes out. A few seconds and a couple of huge dead rats
later the pile starts to burn really well and a lot of smoke arises from it.
It hurts in my throat and we decide to quickly move away.
When we are a couple of hundred meters away from the burning toxic waste
pile we are suprised by a large explosion. I quickly jump to the ground. It
seems that the burning toxic waste exploded, and much of it surroundings
with it. Also the church has disappeared from out view.
We quickly move on and take the public transportation back to
Inthios' residence. There we report to Octia about what we found and how we
solved it. It seems she isn't all that happy about the destruction of the
church, but understands that it was corrupted too much to service any good.
After that we are requested in Inthios' room. He isn't happy about the lost
of Cortez' group, but it seems to me they just weren't capable enough. He
sends us on a undercover mission to the hive world Scintilla. Further
intructions wil be given there. Before we leave the residence we arrange
some lights for the next time that we have to performe in the dark.
That evening Arquis and i visit a weapon shop where we want to sell the
shock maul that we found. We get 140 Thrones and a overcharge pack for it. I
have to find someone that can put it in my gun another time, since we are
leaving early tomorrow. We also arrange some beans which allow us to talk to
each other within a short range.
23.M41 Day 37
I've disassembled my long las into a couple of part so it fits into a not
too big case, and am travelling with Arquis and Vhadeen. The others travel
alone. We're travelling with a big transport vessel and there are only 4
other passengers besides our team. During the journey we're avoiding most
contact with the team members to stay incospicious. The journey takes about
23.M41 Day 51
When we arrive we still
travel seperated to the hab-block that Intios' gave us the coordinates of.
Arquis seems to be able to find the way and when we arrive there, Ravian
already has some coffee ready. The others arrive soon after us.
23.M41 Day 54
Not much has happened the last days. I've explored the surroundings, but
not much interesting around. If nothing is going to happen today, i might
start to look for some jobs. Then Scarlet calls us to come together and
tells us that someone visited her fortune telling business and gave her a
In the case are our next intructions. Tomorrow we have to be at the elevator
platform at the admin quarter FG-32 at 11 in the morning.
