813 (ISG)
« on: April 15, 2018, 11:11:23 pm »



You wake up to the sounds of quiet metalic creaking. The sounds of long unused electronic muscles stretching and shaking off the stiffness. You knew it would be a long time until you reached your destination, so this is unsurprising. Poor AI, though, stayed awake through the entire trip. Must have been lonely. Luckily AI is composed of multiserial competing consciousnesses, so the chances it went insane while you slept is only 23%. You contemplate the loneliness as you get out of your stasis pod. It is dark here, the interior obscured by a stagnant almost palpable darkness. AI, turn on the lights, you say. But to no avail. That... is a bad sign. You wait. The you call out, AI, status report! No answer. It looks like you're on your own for the time being. Activating your cranial flashlight, you finally detangle yourself from your wires. It feels oddly as if you're pulling your veins out, one by one. After doing so, you move open to the door. Its an easy feat, even in the gloom, this pod is quite small. You attempt to open the door, but it refuses to budge. You think for a moment, trying to decide what to do.

We are 813. We are a robot, or perhaps an android of some kind. Our mission is to explore this planet, catalog its life forms, and determine if this planet is a colony prospect. So we are somewhere between dapper space explorer, spaceship crash dummy, and optimistic novice scientist. It is/was dark in this room, we know what we look like, but not the dark room.

Try tapping at the door, see if there's anything outside that can hear us.

Check if the door is powered, if not see if there is an emergency manual override mechanism.

You're going to have to do this the old fashioned way you decide. Tapping the door you hear tinny skittering noises on the other side. It seems you startled some tiny creature, or perhaps two. That's a good sign you think, this planet may sustain complex life. A few more taps and you don't hear anything else, so you look for the manual override. Unfortunately it's not that simple, the door is heavy and reinforced, but the real issue seems to be the rust or perhaps collected earth which is gumming up the gears. You could, of course really go at it with all your might. Or perhaps it would be easier to force restart the computer system and see if you can get the power on. Though if any systems are damaged, you could be trapped in a tiny room with any number of hazards. You take a moment to weigh your options.

Let's blow open the door with our robo-strength first, and then reset the system that may be trying to kill us.

why kill elves if you could torture them, make them betray their friends, denounce their "force", make them watch trees being chopped down, feed them meat and throw them in magma as a sacrifice for almighty Armok?

Eventually when you go far enough the insane start becoming the sane

You are internally conflicted about what to do. You wait a little longer thinking that the way to proceed will become clear.
