Hi, guys. Sorry -- again -- for my disappearance act. If you would still have me, I'll jump n, but I might need a brief summary of what happened between the ice tunnel and the jelly portal.
Fred wrote:Sérgio follows the rest of the group. In his mind, he wonders at the level of weirdness of this mission. "Are we still in our world?" he asks no one specifically.
Steve Trustrum wrote:Sparks looks to Croner, who gives him a shallow nod in reply. Sparks then says "fire in the hole, fire in the hole. In 5, 4, 3 ..." and then begins counting down silently. You see him press against the wall, hugging one arm to his body while closing his eyes, looking away from the wall to be blown, and opening his mouth.

When you open your eyes following the blast, you can see the dust drifting down from the ceiling. You can see there is a neat hole where he blew out the mortar between the stones. You can also feel the air has become somewhat warmer, but also certainly fresher.
Steve Trustrum wrote:As you move up to the hole you can see dirt settling on that side as well. You also see what looks like stone walls that have been dug out of the earth to the sides and above, as though long buried. There are excavation lights tied to generators all over the place, although none are currently on. There are no people in sight and it's very dark, with only a faint bit of light coming from the far end of the excavation, to the distant right.
Steve Trustrum wrote:You see several side passages but because the light source is so dim, and limited to coming from one direction in the distance, you can't see far down any of them to discern how far they've been excavated.
Steve Trustrum wrote:Croner pokes his head out after you three, sees the light and the glow sticks, and motions the rest through to set up a perimeter. The glow sticks don't reveal much, except you are obviously underground in some sort of cave. Based on the tools, lights, and gennies, it seems to be another excavation. It's also much warmer, as you all begin to sweat in your cold weather gear.
Steve Trustrum wrote:Croner indicates he doesn't want the gennies on--they'll make noise as well as light you all up for anyone to see. He also nods that Sergio should backup Sparks on point. He ends by telling everyone to go to hand signals and to police up anything loose that will make noise. He then motions everyone to move quietly along the wall towards the existing light.
