They pile into the submarine, six at a time (that's the airlock size). V feels the air squeezed out of their lungs as they shift to have lungs, but the water is already going down... They've got pretty intense pumps here*.


The Submarine turns slightly, and a torpedo explodes. You can feel the vibration go through the vessel.



Vassarious reaches out with the detect ability, and finds the demons aren't all dead. They do seem to be slowed down though... but that won't last, not with Telruthian Healing Rates.



Dang that "Detect Evil Supernatural Creatures" ability is nice here.

*I think we're going to ignore decompression sickness for this game. It just feels a bit off.

"I don't know how much help we can be if they're going to maintain their range like this... Hey V, could you transform into a better weapon if you can't move yourself?"

"What do you have in mind?"

"They follow us still... they must be trying to keep track of the sub... if they could do so without line of sight, they would fly overhead and drop down ahead of us. Perhaps I should range back out and finish them, then we can change course. "

"What is our clock down to now, two more days until the demonic ritual cannot be completed?"

at 9:58 of day five, a question comes over the comm system. "we've got a weird fish on the cameras. This isn't a demon is it? we're sending a picture of it over"

So yeah, about two days left... I'm not actually sure if midnight is the right time to set the time of completion to. Setting it to 07:06 of the eighth day should work.

"If they can be tracked by their ken, the enemy can use their position to send reinforcements."

Vassarious includes Captain Akimori, General Kunitane and Silestro in the discussion.

"If we agree it is the best choice, I will go back out untethered and face them. If I do, I ask that we reduce speed, and then change course and accelerate once I am back aboard or should I be defeated."

Captain Akimori: "How much of a reduction in speed do you need?"


Silestro: "Careful, they might be able to do things outside of my protective bubble. But its probably worth it: I'm going to run out of energy eventually"

"Protective bubble? Your barrier is inside the ship protecting the Emperor's chamber... Something else is at work? How far does it extend?"

(( OOC: Is the first mention of this? I went back to the start of the mission, but couldn't find any reference.. I skimmed, so maybe I just missed it.))

"I'm blocking teleportation onto the ship, and into nearby waters. The bubble extends about 100 yards from my location in all directions. I can only keep it up so long.... At least an hour, maybe more. Its... draining."



OCC: its is a reference to this line ... but getting more detail is good!
