    Previous thread:

    Here's what I have so far.
    Remind me where I am wrong, and I have simplified grenade layout for my own sake.

    18 Stealth Drones with Lasers and EMP Guns.
    1 Samson 70 with 2 Lightning Guns in personal stealth drone.
    1 Joanna with Explosive Bolt Bow and Gamma in a stealth suit.
    1 Irony with Laser and Gamma in a stealth suit.
    1 Sangeyla with Laser and EMP Gun in a stealth suit.
    1 Thatcher with EMP Gun and Gamma in a stealth suit.
    1 Helus with Lightning Gun and Laser in a stealth suit.
    1 Archer with Lightning GUn and Flamethrower in a stealth suit.
    1 Theta with EMP Gun and Assault Rifle in a stealth suit.

    1 Ayebohr with Laser and Gamma in a stealth suit.
    1 Dirk with Laser and Gamma in a stealth suit.

    Everyone has this grenade layout:
    2 High Explosive
    2 Thermobaric
    2 EMP
    2 Decontaminant
    >> Subcontracter Lim !!WNAAQArhCnX 09/18/09(Fri)21:50 No.5916566
    Lightning gun and EMP for me, please. Though I'm willing to be part of the Heat Ray fire team if needed.

    The heat ray warms up and several thousands degrees of heat are contained within that powerful gravitation field, rapidly turning a large section of the bulkhead into nothing more than ugly, molten slag, allowing you to enter.

    This is why I only do it on rare events like this, where you might actually be involved in various activities.

    In any case, the corridors are completely clean and sterile. Despite eight years of being abandoned, there's not a single mote of dust in the cold, metal research facility.

    The first encounter's a rather strange one. A broad room that you need to go through in order to descend to the next level - an entry room to go to the next most important area, really.
    There's over twenty gigantic turrets mounted on the walls, lying motionless. However, their laser sights are not, constantly rolling here and there to attempt to detect anything visible.
    Thirty feet opposite you are the stairs that lead downwards.

    How do you folks want to react to this situation?

    "Let's ju--"
    Samson 70's suddenly cut off as orders as whispers and suddenly, EMP blasts and thrown everywhere. The targetting lasers move more eratically, desperately trying to search for targets. One after another, they're deactivated, having not been able to locate a single target. Scrambled by the EMP blast, the heat ray slowly scrolls across the room, wiping each turret out completely.
    Samson 70 continues.
    "... We could've just walked past them, you know."

    Samson 70 and his drones continue to lead the way, going down the staircase and following one particular sign - one leading towards a 'Project Hivemind', that leads them further and further downstairs. There are all sorts of other signs as well in this research facility - Fusion Battery Production, Assassin Drone, all sorts of other signs.

    A long, rather uneventful trek down series of flights of stairs and down corridors leads you towards the very bottom of the facility. There a large hallway with a small optical scanner panel attached to it, but the door is open. The hallway extends for over a hundred feet, with the walls, floor and ceiling polished to perfection. If you want invisible, you could see each individual hair in the reflection perfectly. This leads towards the heart of 'Project Hivemind'.

    Helus and Archer have chosen to accompany the drone - at a distance. The rest of you warily observe from beyond the corridor. You notice that the floor appears to shift with every step, metal silently bending beneath feet.

    The drone gets exactly a distance of thirty feet - just thirty. Then, suddenly, a metal panel slides open to reveal a spider-like drone, rather small and rather feeble, on the ceiling.
    A small hole on the front of it, large enough to shove a tennis ball down, suddenly belches out a molten sphere of plasma that effortlessly glides through the drone, leaving a hole in its wake. The plasma dissipates upon hitting the floor.

    Another spider drone emerges from the ceiling meanwhile from the side panels, four drones, completely smooth and perfect in appearance with no loose machinery like yours, emerge, with blade-like limbs that they dance and twist upon. They emit a soft hum.

    None of the drones appear to have any sensory equipment. However, they are all advancing towards Helus and Archer.

    Oh god, my chest.

    The suits do not possess VTOL capabilities.

    A grenade suddenly hits the floor and rolls past them. One of the spidercrab drones immediately turns around and blasts it with hot plasma, rendering it useless.

    Seconds later, that same drone is blasted away by a strike of lightning, falling to the floor and twitching.

    When Helus and Archer drop to the floor, the drones immediately begin to fire their EMP - which the assassin drones appear to briefly resist before they fall to the floor, completely inanimate.

    The panels in the hallway close.

    The panels in the room before the doorway, the one you're all in, opens. Four plasma crabs emerge, along with sixteen assassin drones, in all directions.

    Samson 70's reaction?

    "Run - run for the central brain. We need to take care of it and now."

    "Right." I double-time it for the brain, ordering the drones with the kinetic to stay with me and dial it down to a couple meters. If anyone else gets hurt, I'll try to grab them.

    Wait, wouldn't we have some kind of certification as subcontractors working with Trade Star? A badge or something. Couldn't I try waving it about or something. Not I think it would matter at this point, since we all seem to be going guns akimbo now.

    >> Plasma !UHUuLXLjhk 09/18/09(Fri)23:11 No.5917550
    There's nothing you can se--

    Wait a minute. The virus is crawling beneath its dead comrades, using it as camouflage.

    It's already begun to seep across, beneath the ocean, across the sea floor and carefully, silently edging into research facility.

    Anyway, two people is enough to make the heat ray fuction while your other comrade runs with the rest. You attempt to hold them off, easily taking down seven, eight drones - before eventually, a ball of plasma is spat directly at the energy core of the heat ray. It explodes in a ball of flame and Darius and Supernova are both engulfed in the sudden, powerful burst, the front of their armour completely ruined, the front of their bodies covered in burns and shrapnel.

    You're ignored as the drones chase after the rest, scuttling and dancing along - but they're already gone. As drones tried to come out panels, they were immediately shut. It wasn't too long until most of you arrived on the other side of the hallway, losing only two drones and your two heat ray handlers - as well as the heat ray.

    You see a sphere, hanging there in space in this pristine white room. The sphere is pitch black and completely smooth - it absorbs all light that touches it. Any attempt to touch it - nothing goes through it. No light, no heat, nothing physical, nothing.
    There are two rooms connected to this room, one to the left and one to the right. Cables run from them, leading to the centre of the room you are in, directly below the sphere.
    S70: "It's a kinetic shield and an energy shield. We're going to have to disable the generators."

    >> Subcontractor Thatcher 09/18/09(Fri)23:13 No.5917572
    I try to shoot a gamma ray through it.

    If that doesn't work I head for the room to the left.

    "I'm heading this way! Samson! Send a couple drones down each hallway again!"
    >> Subcontractor Archer 09/18/09(Fri)23:13 No.5917575

    So, are we finally acknowledging the guys who were saying that we have our carrier here, and having our heat 'copters block the entrance with a wall of heat beams?
    >> Scientist Zakharov 09/18/09(Fri)23:15 No.5917593
    Have the drones ready to activate when the virus begins to reach the shores of the island with the Heat Ray watching over for Intel gathering. If any large masses of the virus form have the Heat Ray copters fry it.

    Frying immediately begins, but there's the problem of the virus that has already entered the facility.
    You're ensuring that no more will. Sorry about that.

    Anyway - what do you folks do? Who attempts to hold off the tide of assassins and plasma crabs coming from the rear, who attempts to go left, who attempts to go right?

    >> Subcontractor Supernova !FzAyW.Rdbg 09/18/09(Fri)23:19 No.5917641
    Logically, those with electricity guns and EMP should guard the hall, the rest should split into the rooms - their lasers should finish whatever else is left easily.

    everyone who isn't dead or wounded is in the room with the virus core now, right? Or in the battery room? I throw a thermobaric inside the room where I got bushwacked then, followed by a EMP after the thermobaric goes off. Then I set my lightning gun on full auto, and begin trying to shoot down 'bots while trying to catch any incoming plasma with my gravity gun.
    >> Plasma !UHUuLXLjhk 09/18/09(Fri)23:21 No.5917664
    Several plasma crabs turn on you, firing shot after shot that melts into the walls. Several explode upon the explosion of the high explosive but almost immediately, more emerge from the hidden confines, forcing you to take cover.

    No injuries so far.
