[Massive Infiltration Plot] || [Semi-Open]

Characters: All the characters who signed up for this infiltration, too many to write them all here. Characters who stay behind and do not infiltrate can tag into the mingle thread.
Setting: The Cafeteria, then the Elevator's Shaft and finally the Administrative Floors. The 29th of July, in the morning.
Format: Action most likely.

Summary: A month ago Ganondorf planned an infiltration to go and pay a visit to Riki's floor-- Given what has happened these last weeks, the 'Evil Alliance' has accepted to allow Enoch and the people he gathered to use the infiltration in order to do their own thing. Namely, retrieve scientific instruments from Jason's laboratory, so as to study the Collar Fluid. The infiltration will begin on the 1st floor, the Cafeteria.

The first thread is a traditional mingle thread, happening before the infiltration and briefing begin; anyone can tag into it. The second thread is a quick briefing before the infiltration starts, where Enoch and Ganondorf will explain to everyone what to do and what to expect in case they don't already know. Then there are the seven group threads, one for each individual team infiltrating.

The OOC post is here for more information. If you have signed-up but didn't pick a group yet, please do so here. While the infiltration takes place, the villains who stayed behind are unleashing a distraction on the tower and those who don't go.

Warnings: Administrative floors, danger, death, horror. Anyone tagging here is probably going to die, or at the very least meet with a terrible fate.

I mean--come inside, alright? [R-037 puts her gas mask back on--it covers her entire face, more of a hood than a mask. Still, she can speak with it on easily enough. The shadows in the room ripple and twist.]

I need you to tell me if you've been experiencing anything strange. Seeing or hearing or feeling things that shouldn't be there, that disappear--wounds with no cause--strange thoughts entering your head?
no_longer_a_king: (Popsicle what?)

[personal profile] no_longer_a_king 2013-08-01 03:51 am (UTC)(link)
No wounds, no. At least not ones we don't know the causes to. [Her shirt is still red and nose crooked from her broken nose, even if her abilities are slowly getting ti to heal.]

No strange thoughts that I've noticed. Ruler? Zelda?

[personal profile] faithstaynight 2013-08-01 03:52 am (UTC)(link)
[Ruler shakes her head, her frown returning.]

No, nothing here. But wait a moment. If you need that mask, then what about us-?
sageprincess: (Cordial curiosity)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2013-08-01 03:56 am (UTC)(link)
There was the pressure and ringing from earlier, and our footsteps seemed a bit too loud as we descended the staircase. It was unsettling, perhaps, but not enough to be painful.

[She follows R-037 obediently, but she has to admit she's concerned as well.]
animusnpcs: (R-037 ♫ Aria)

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2013-08-01 04:02 am (UTC)(link)
All of the administrative levels are contaminated with psychoradiation. You're beginning to show signs of psychoradiation poisoning. There are certain areas down here that are more contaminated than other areas.

[The door closes behind them. The shadows seem to dance as if they were water droplets bouncing about. R-037 leads them to a side room, and the lights flick on as soon as she enters. She produces three gas masks and offers them to the group.]
no_longer_a_king: (And I should listen becaaaaause?)

[personal profile] no_longer_a_king 2013-08-01 04:03 am (UTC)(link)
[Arturia takes one obediently and dons it.]

Psychoradiation? How did this happen? Is it because of those chips we placed short circuiting everything?
sageprincess: (Discerning intentions)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2013-08-01 04:09 am (UTC)(link)
[Zelda takes another and follows suit, albeit a bit more slowly because what the hell is a gas mask.]

Psycho... radi... [And what kind of word is that?]
Wait... What about the others?

[There is... kind of a small army assaulting the administrative levels as they speak...]

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2013-08-01 04:12 am (UTC)(link)
The power cores--ah, weren't ever really meant to be shut down like that. [She sounds a bit sheepish.] They'll be leaking psychoradiation for--goodness, yea--

The others?
no_longer_a_king: (I heard that)

[personal profile] no_longer_a_king 2013-08-01 04:14 am (UTC)(link)
There's others who came down, about forty or so, looking for lab equipment as a few of our number managed to get their hands on some of the fluid in our collars when they tried to avoid their collar checkups. They wanted to analyze it and find out what it is, but we can't do so with equipment made from the film.

[personal profile] faithstaynight 2013-08-01 04:16 am (UTC)(link)
[It's impossible to see most of Ruler's face once she puts on the remaining gas mask, but her eyes do widen slightly in what appears to be disbelief.]

Do you mean to say that nobody else made it down here? But there were so many...
sageprincess: (Concealed pain)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2013-08-01 04:22 am (UTC)(link)
There is also the matter of finding the "key" Dax spoke of in his research...

[But her voice is quiet, suddenly worried about nearly everyone who went before them.]
animusnpcs: (R-037 ♫ Aria)

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2013-08-03 12:06 am (UTC)(link)
No one's been here, but I don't spend much time walking around the place without reason--but, if they're still down here, they're in danger. Psychoradiation poisons you all the same as it does us.

[She chews on her lower lip.] I can... Try to help you with the collar situation. You'll see next month. That was what he was talking about, actually. The fluid.
no_longer_a_king: (Just so tired)

[personal profile] no_longer_a_king 2013-08-03 12:21 am (UTC)(link)
What does the psychoradiation do?

[What happened to everyone before them?]
sageprincess: (Nocturne of Shadow)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2013-08-03 12:27 am (UTC)(link)
[It's relieving to finally have confirmation on what Dax meant, as well as news that R-037 will be actively helping next month, but...]

It has been... hours at least since the first group went down. We were the last to enter the elevator shaft...

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2013-08-03 12:34 am (UTC)(link)
Sensory hallucinations, strange thoughts, wounds that begin appearing out of nowhere--death, eventually, though how long it would take depends on where everyone is. The frequented areas are scrubbed at least semi-regularly, but there are some especially bad hotspots that don't get cleaned, and each administrator decides for themselves what level of psychoradiation they'll put up with in their work areas. They're more resistant than us, or you all.

[Only after repeating all her information does R-037 seem to absorb what Zelda is saying, and she gapes at her.] The elevator shaft? You--what, did you rappel down? Through all that psychoradiation?
no_longer_a_king: (And I should listen becaaaaause?)

[personal profile] no_longer_a_king 2013-08-03 12:37 am (UTC)(link)
[....some uncomfortable shifting from Arturia. If it weren't for the mask, you would see a sheepish look on her face.]

....You know. Rappeling would have been a better option now that I think about it.
faithstaynight: (pic#4470905)

[personal profile] faithstaynight 2013-08-03 12:39 am (UTC)(link)
[Ruler, too, shifts a bit, and sounds quite embarrassed.]

We, ah... we fell, actually. The idea that our powers would be nulled did not occur to us until it was too late.
animusnpcs: (R-037 ♫ Aria)

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2013-08-03 12:44 am (UTC)(link)
You fell? [R-037 gapes further.] That's--right through the cable gap?
sageprincess: (Unbelievably bored)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2013-08-03 12:46 am (UTC)(link)
I believe the plan was to use the cables the elevator is attached to, but, as you say, those seemed to stop just below the cafeteria.

[Zelda, in comparison, stands rather straight. It's impossible to tell with the gas hood, but she may or may not be looking rather pointedly in her companion's direction.]

Hacking the elevator itself does not work any more, so we had to get "creative," so to speak.
no_longer_a_king: (Default)

[personal profile] no_longer_a_king 2013-08-03 12:49 am (UTC)(link)
[She can feel that death glare from here, Zelda. It was a stupid idea, okay? And one that she is going to try so hard to make up to you.]

Er. Yes. We had to get 'creative' and, well.... we had no idea about the red ring of light or the shadows or--

[A pause.] Are those shadows part of the psychoradiation poisoning or will we have to worry about them as well?
animusnpcs: (R-037 ♫ Aria)

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2013-08-03 12:51 am (UTC)(link)
The little shadows with the white teeth? Those are real. And yes, don't hack into the residential elevator anymore, it's been given additional protections. The gap you encountered is--well, it's supposed to prevent this situation, and also prevent those shadows from climbing up.
no_longer_a_king: (Her one ally)

[personal profile] no_longer_a_king 2013-08-03 12:52 am (UTC)(link)
[The big question on everyone's mind ICly and OOCly:]

What are they?
sageprincess: (Idle minds)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2013-08-03 01:00 am (UTC)(link)
[Hush, once they're back and "safe" in the residential levels, all will be forgiven.

Well. Unless an opportunity for lighthearted teasing presents itself.]


They did not seem interested in us at the time... Though I suppose if they are more interested in getting into the residential levels, that would make sense.
animusnpcs: (R-037 ♫ Aria)

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2013-08-03 01:08 am (UTC)(link)
I don't know exactly, though I suspect some of the administrators do. I know they're related to the phantoms, and they started appearing in much larger numbers after the power core failed, but aside from that...

[She shakes her head.]

Jason calls them psychelysis phantoms. I'm sure he knows more. Zo--seems to, as well, but he's being very quiet on the subject, which is unusual for him.
sageprincess: (Farore's Wind)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2013-08-03 01:13 am (UTC)(link)
Psyche... lysis...

[ALL THESE STRANGE WORDS. But she makes a mental note of the term, as well as Jason's knowledge. The mention of Zo, though, gets her to think of something else.]

Oh! About Zo-- does he... know about you, R? I imagine you kept that emotionless facade during his visit to avoid suspicion, but...
