    Oh! I forgot what your samplers discovered.

    Your five samplers on the mainland continue to go South and East, following the coast - until they eventually come across a tremendous city. A gigantic stone gate, with literally thousands of natives around it. Tens of gorillas and hundreds of apes and chimps, all of them patrolling and maintaining the area, while refugees run through the various doors and gates, past the massive yellow stone wall. There are also Uni-Peace employees guarding the refugee paths.

    Meanwhile, on the new land you're exploring - there's nothing but jungle and abandoned camps.
    On the new land, you've discovered:
    1 deposit of 500 tons.
    1 gas pocket of 4500 units.
    2 gas pockets of 3500 units.
    1 gas pocket of 3000 units.

    Any damage inflicted on the body encourages the rapid growth of benign skin tumors in the area. These tumours usually rapidly close wounds and expel harmful materials. Of course, usually an excess number of tumours are grown and this dead, mutated flesh usually drops off.

    137 has apparently left his comms channel open and this is the garbage suddenly spewed as the two missles are spotted descending from the sky.
    The voice is slowly disintegrating into nothing more than binary screeching. The screaming continues as the explosive missle goes off in the middle of the ranks, destroying dozens and scattering the rest. Then the thermobaric goes off.
    The carnage is almost impossible to describe. Almost all of them are completely shattered and the rest of them are sent flying through the air, barely any of them managing to make themselves stable before they land explosively.

    They come closer. You notice something. The synths - they're patchy. The white plastic is spoiled by patches of dark metal clinging to them like fungus to a tree - sometimes the metal is in thin patches, sometimes it's in lumps.

    And that's when you open fire. Hundreds of artillery shells. Hundreds of lasers. Nothing could withstand that amount of damage. Simpy put, everything is obliterated before it even gets close, smashing to the floor. A couple of conidae manage to pull off a handful of lightning shots and you force the hit drones to self-destruct - but that's it. No damage other than that. You have completely wiped them out.

    50 SHCD - 2 Thermobaric, 1 Napalm, 2 Flamers.

    Nope, that wasn't me.

    All I'm saying is that we should watch the melted stuff for a while to make sure its good and dead. If it is, in fact, good and dead, we need to find out what the fuck it is.

    my impression is that that sort of behavior is what doomed 137.

    If it seems to stay dead, nuke it again once.
    If it seems to live, nuke it again 3 times and pony up for spaceship schematics.

    No 137 didn't try killing at all, it just decided to study it.

    I actually agree that we should make sure it's dead and then study it, but we should do it in isolation if at all possible. And be absolutely ready to utterly destroy whatever might get compromised during such a study.

    Eh, maybe you're right.

    This is rather meta-gamey of me, but I don't think Plasma would pit us against a completely indestructable enemy. There's got to be a way to beat it besides fleeing the planet.
