"I'm fine, I guess I just had a bit of a flashback." Mercedes explains rather haughtily, avoiding any detail of what she experienced.
Wouldn't you like to know? She puts up a mind block, just in case.

Keeping her paranoia to herself, Mercedes subtly glances at each person present in turn. Who did that? I'll figure it out and make them pay. Painfully!

"Your welcome to come too."

"For what?", she demands unpleasantly, sounding annoyed.

(((Rolls Carry Over)))

Murdoc turns to Jack, "If you wanna burn some of that cash, lets hit it." He turns to Dave, knowing full well the robot received the transmission as well, and shrugs as what can you do kind of motion, "Little Willie likes his soup. If you could oblige the man, that would be great."

He looks to Mercedes, "Your welcome to come too.


Jack looks at Murdoc and Mercedes with eyes wide open, “I like the idea of burn some cash, I’m good at burning. Usually cash isn’t that important. Where I come from it is trade goods. And you have such high-tech items. I want to see what you have.”

Jack speaks to, "Come on Mercedes, maybe you can help a country bumkin like me turn into a gentleman?”

Jack checks his credits, as he sees Murdoc does. Then he follows Murdoc. Once under way Jack ask, “Do they restrict us from having anything?”

"Oh, very well. You're all so clearly helpless without me, so I may as well."
Hades, does my head ever hurt. I guess it happened to Jack, too.

Mercedes decides to forgo her body armor but keeps her sword with her, choosing to dress in her business attire.
I may as well look somewhat harmless out in the town.

Magefire Weapons to spend wait...spend?! That's not in my nature!

Bettie either enters through the garage or heads directly for it, whichever is quicker, in order to have a look at her brand new hover bike. "Oooooh, so shinny!", she runs her hand over the freshly painted flames on the crafts nose. If anyone else is in the garage she smiles at them, "So what do you think?".

Absolutely nobody is present at the compound. Even Dave is absent.

((Rolls carried over))


Bettie pokes her head into every room that is not outright locked saying, "Hello? Aaaaanybody heeeere?". Finally, after checking ever nook and cranny Bettie simply shrugs, "Eh, oh well...I wonder what Wak's room is like? No, no, no, Bad Bettie! Wait until he at least invites you into his room once!". Having decided against invading the team leaders privacy, at least for now, Bettie realizes there is some work to be done. She grabs all her new clothes, armor, weapons, and other gear and heads to her room. Once there she spends the time attaching the Wilk's sights to the pair of NE-6SL's and sighting them in. Next she adjusts the fit of both the Man-Killer EBA and the old suit of Mega-Juicer EBA that John gifted her, "Well, both these are going to need a paint job...hmmm, I wonder if any of the others can paint? That or I can take both suits over to Wellington and see if they'll do the same paint job as they did on the AHB.". Once that is done she dons her new armored clothes, "Now why didn't they dream this stuff up sooner?".

A. No-one has returned yet.

If she finishes all this up before anyone returns she spends her time getting familiar with the base and the bar. Seeing that the wet bar is woefully under stocked, Bettie frowns and starts making a new shopping list in her head for Dave, "I really don't see how these guys consider themselves mercs with such a limited supply of alcohol.", she mutters to herself as she works.

B. Someone returns in the meantime.

Hearing someone else returning Bettie comes out of her room to greet them, "Hey, how'd your shopping go?".

John comes in the compound gate. Quiet in here... I guess everyone went to that meeting and Dave the Robot is hiding. I wonder if he has an all-metal servant's room.

"Oh, hey, Bettie. It went pretty well. Suprisingly little to buy here right now - I don't really collect weapons for the sake of collecting. One of the shops actually closed behind me and the guy went on vacation. Well, he was sort of a demi-god, but still."

He shrugs, "Did you find anything exciting? Have you heard anything about this mission? Also, it's pretty crazy that we get to town and the same day we're already up for getting hired. No rest for the wicked awesome."

"Heya John. Demi-god on vacation...wow. Guess everyone needs some time off now and then. I was just working on another shopping list for Dave, need to stock the bar.", Bettie hops up and sits down on the bar top, "As for anything exciting, I got myself a brand spanking new Wellington hover cycle. It's out in the garage. Uh, got a new suit of armor, a pair of those Naruni make plasma revolvers, bought 4 fully loaded drums of rounds for that plasma gattling, a spiffy Wilk's walkie talkie, these N-G Streetwolf threads I've got on. Oh, and I placed an order to get one of those Naruni two handed swords techno-magic modified to make it lots faster when I need it.", Bettie grins, "I was trying to find a claymore style sword made out of the same metal as the one I've got now, but so far no luck. The guy over at Weapons of Wonder is keeping an eye out for me. Although he did tell me weapons like it can be found at some pirate town up river. Queensbay or something I think? If we happen to head that way sometime soon, it'd give me a chance to pick up what I've been looking for.".

John and Bettie’s radios fire up, spewing the dulcet tones of Murdoc all over the place like a first-timer at Mardi Gras.

John asks if everyone was supposed to go to the meeting contrary to the previous communication, then turns to Bettie. “I think they’re jealous because we are the strongest ones there is. Also best looking.”

Bettie quirks and eyebrow, "I didn't have any trouble with the guy at Weapons of Wonder that I remember. I asked if he had any swords made outta whatever this one is and he said no, but he was able to point me towards that Queens Bay place.", when John mentions his Naruni made sword she grins, "Aye, ended up with one of those as well. It's over at Armstrong-Bennett getting modified for speed. Not sure how all the techno-magic thing works, but if it helps me lay out the enemy better and faster, I'm all for it!". As the pair continue to wait for other members of the team to return Bettie wonders aloud, "Wonder where the rest are at? Any idea John?".

Bettie glances over at the door to the garage area, "I was thinking of taking my new cycle, but yeah...lets just hoof it.".


Bettie grabs a couple more things from her room, just not the illegal stuff, and follows John to the meeting.

Arriving at the Roughneck's stronghold, Mercedes addresses teammates nearby.
"Good night, boys."
She goes straight to her room, right to the shower, with her Battle Fury Blade never out of reach.
I think that I may hate the Spooks already. I suppose friendly fire does happen sometimes though. That would be a shame.

John comes in, slightly buzzed from the Reaper Madness shots in the Ogre's Den. Mercedes goes to her... lair. And he considers the potential consequences of his 'insight' into her greed.

John then pulls out his helmet. Which is also a phone. And calls Menelaus Clotho.

"Hi Menelaus, sorry to be bothering you so late. I hope the information on the vampires and Splugorth was helpful to Kingsdale. I also hope we're now resistant to the creepy brain worm. I didn't like that thing.

Me and some... people are heading out to murder a... thing? Named Nxla? The Soulharvester?

If you can provide any information I'd appreciate it.


Also.

Souls are real? I have one? how can I protect that? Because I don't like the potential of having my... soul? ripped out?"

John enters the code to call Menelaus and the line rings through. A Voice on the other end answers in a soft groggy tone ”Hello…”

John Replies to the voice, "Hi Menelaus, sorry to be bothering you so late. I hope the information on the vampires and Splugorth was helpful to Kingsdale. I also hope we're now resistant to the creepy brain worm. I didn't like that thing.

The voice responds, ”John, is that you? What time is it John? What are you talking about? Worms?” The man's voice sounds more awake and aware this time.

John continues, Me and some... people are heading out to murder a... thing? Named Nxla? The Soul harvester? If you can provide any information, I'd appreciate it.

The voice is quiet for a second, then responds, ”John, are you drunk? What the hell are you talking about? Why would you murder someone or something? I mean really John. That is not something you call to tell people. What kind of information on murder would you expect from me? The man seems oblivious to the name Nxla and has no reaction when John mentions it

John continues slightly unphased by the man’s misinterpretation of the call still reeling from the shots. ”Also, Souls are real? I have one? how can I protect that? Because I don't like the potential of having my... soul? ripped out?"

A great laughter erupts on the other end of the line. Loud and long it seems to go on for a good two or three minutes before calming down. The voice attempts to gain it composure. ”You can protect your soul by avoiding murder for starters. John, did someone slip something in your drink? Where you having a bad dream man? What is all this about. It is very early in the morning and would really like to get back to sleep. What is this all about? The man on the other line seems humored and concerned simultaneously.

John slows down, realizing he wasn't being very clear. And that Menelaus is from a different place, so might not understand slang. He refuses to take into account his buzz.

"Hi, yes, sorry, it's me. John. I would have called tomorrow but the group I work with is shipping out."

When Menelaus asks if John had something slipped in his drink, John laughs. "I haven't been slipped anything, unfortunately. We've been hired to fight some kind of major supernatural evil from another dimension named Nxla. We can't seem to turn up any useful information on the threat, but I thought maybe you'd know, since you're one of the most experienced people... ever. It sounds like something on par with a vampire intelligence, but it can steal souls. Presumably that's how it got the nickname 'The Soulharvester.'"

John pauses for a second. "I have to say that I'm kind of shocked that everyone else is being so blase about the fact that souls are definitely real and can be stolen."

John pauses for a second. "I have to say that I'm kind of shocked that everyone else is being so blase about the fact that souls are definitely real and can be stolen."


Menelaus listens silently as John attempts to clear up the confusion. John finishes and there is a long moment of silence. An awkward moment that would lead someone to ask if the other person is still on the line. Then the reply, "A situation you have on your hands John. Do not apologize for waking me. I would be glad to help of course. As for your Nxla, I am sad to say I know very little. I have read something of him in a book once. A terrible being. An eater of souls. More important and something to be more mindful of, he gains the power of the souls he feasts on."

There is a brief breathy sigh on the other end of the call. Brief silence again, then, "Yes John, souls are real. There are battles for our souls all around us. You must be conscious of this. There is no way for you to protect your own soul. You can only be true to your nature. Pray to your God should you have one and hope they will draw it to them when you pass to the other side." The man's tone has changed, more alert, more aware. Behind it some nervousness can be detected.

The man pauses again, "John, If you want to protect yourself from this creature. From this monster. Don't go. Don't go John. That is how you will protect your soul. Blissful ignorance will serve you well. Find a young women to serve your needs and you will never have to worry. Live out the rest of your life, no matter how short or long in peaceful ignorance of what may lie ahead. A brief breathless pause. Then he finishes, "If you do go. If you must. I will keep you in my thoughts. I will remember you, should you not come home." In this final breath of advise John can detect a bit of nervous desperation. A bit of fear for what might be.

Any buzz John still had disappears immediately. I don't pray to gods, I punch gods.

"I appreciate your help, Menelaus. And if the fate of the world weren't on the line, I'd probably take your advice."

John stops talking for too long. "Is there a way to free these captured souls?"

Menelaus pauses to consider the question. John can hear him breathe, sigh and wrestle with it over the connection. "John, I think not. I could be wrong. I would say the best you can do for those trapped or on the verge is offer them mercy. Do not allow them to suffer the pain of the physical for long. They will have eternity to suffer the ephemeral pain, no need to make it worse."

John can tell the man has no happy tones in his voice. "I will keep you in my thoughts John. If I come up with something else I will try to seek you out. For now, I am an old man and I need my rest. Good night John. God Speed."

John wishes he could drink himself to sleep and makes a mental note to be REALLY sure he wants to talk to Menelaus before he reaches out to him in the future. Or maybe to stick to topics like puppies.

"Yes, thank you. I will try to be careful and I appreciate you talking to me even though it's late. Sleep well."

John then hangs up his helmet and looks around at the dark compound.

I won't be telling the others about this conversation, I think...

He then goes to bed and tries to sleep, though it ends up being a night of fitful tossing and turning.

When he knows the stores will be open, he gets up, showers (might be the last time for a while!) and heads out to Badgerbold Cartographers.

When Wak gets back he will go to Dave, "Hey Dave, please load up the spare mini-missiles in the RV and head out first thing and pick up 4 full reloads for the WI-GL20 Automatic Grenade Launcher. Mixture of frag and armor piercing. Comes out of the group fund. Also, make sure the medical gear and the e-clip recharger is loaded into the RV. Thanks bud." Wak then goes to sleep for the night.

In the morning, he tells people, "Get packed and everything loaded in the RV. If you still need anything, go get it now and get back here ASAP, so we can get on the road soon. John, don't forget about the maps."

He heads HERE.
