Wonderful wonderful exposition! There's just one more thing I'd like to know...

"How did these crewmen die?"

"How did these crewmen die?"

She replies, "Radioactive decay."

Presumably this is a terse "Even low levels of radiation are cumulatively damaging when your body is not repairing that damage, due to stasis; Cosmic ray particle bombardment from the eclipsed sun was sufficient to do this over 4 million years."

Either that, or there is something really scary under the floor. (which would ironically, explain why the pentagram is glowing.)


One thing to consider though; Since they included one of these "Class B" gates, it appears power is an issue with the design of this craft. It has been sitting here trying to keep corpses alive for 4 million years, and sustaining forcefields to do that... 

We really should ask about how much power it has in reserve.  that is, if we were anything other than a confused kobold. :P

"So they died from exposure to the ship?" you ask.

"No. My anti-platinum drive is... 99.999998% safe. To be clear... Their bodies decayed into blood over billions of years. Blood ks the only truly stable element in the universe."

"How much energy is in your anti-platinum drive?" you ask.

"A modest 2 quadrillion Urists."

Right then... time to take the plunge.

"Can you let me outside please? I need to go get a-- a friend!"

"Certainly."

+1 Ask him about Angels of the Blood Covenant and Angels of Calceus
If he asks where I heard about it, tell him ôClara III told me, I came to take you with us so we can go to other planesö

One thing I noticed, the ship said "Matthias was an angel of the Blood Covenant. He was a prolific murderer during the Blood Wars."
and "Azrael was an angel of the Calceus Rebellion and the creator of Clara III" the point here being Matthias appears to have been on the other side of the crew and the ship, meaning that the ship might very well not be happy if we bring him aboard, I vote we ask the ship what would happen if Matthias were to come aboard, but do not mention anything about us bringing him

Usually I'd avoid building such pyramids, but here it's actually kind of useful for bookkeeping purposes.

...Wait I should check that statement. 'Ey MadMonkey, what's your stance on quote pyramids? Yea or nay?
