Well they say knowledge is for sharing after all.

Fair enough. Makes me wonder how Corco translation would cover the reference though.

"If they find the submarine, they'll be able to get in: Gate callers can open portals just about where-ever they want. If that happens, we'll need you two killing demons. They have to find us first though, and they've got to do it in a week. What are your sleep requirements? we should set up a watch schedule"

"I sense nothing else demonic, currently. I am staying alert for any change. I am unsure if I can pass your barrier... My nature is magical, but not demonic."

"I can close them. I can also block all portals to the ship for an hour or so. So if we can clear the ship and run, we should be able to shake them."

"Eight hours. Less in a pinch."
"This is a pinch... but for now we may want people rested. I sleep seven hours a night. And your friend?"

"The barrier is for magical creatures, not demonic. The Telruthians have forces other than their own demons. You can test the barrier though..."


V encounters resistance from the barrier while still a full two feet away from its visible surface. This hardens to impassable a good six inches away.


"So what exactly are you?"

"Hm... So clear them out in an hour while running? Should be doable. How many can come through before you close the portal?"

I consider how I fell asleep at HQ recently. "I can give you five if you need it. But if not, best to take it easy."

"That all depends on how soon I figure out there is a portal, and how many they got close. If they can sneak people in for an hour, potentially hundreds... but if we find it immediately, maybe only a dozen.

- That is on the original Genesis template cribbed from the earthbound angel as a matter of fact!


"I can stay awake indefinately... I can stay on partol of the ship to sense any approaching demons, or stand guard outside of the barrier..."
