Oh and the new guy walks out of the shuttle, past Pathos and his semi-shaved ape.

"Yes I was. While they weren't real, they were real enough, and their attempt to eat me is what caused my wounds. Ok just to be sure, you didn't try to eat me, did you?"

Hmm... Start calling the man random names. See if he responds to any of them. If he shows no response, choose a name for him at random.

I only ate a few vampire hearts. Like, three tops. I'm sure it'll be fine.

I'm a bit unclear on the layout of the mining level. Would it theoretically be possible to lob a cart of explosives in the direction of the shard, given the low gravity there, without undue exposure to the shard?

Speaking off, did the mindfuck only set in once we looked at the shard, or already when we were in the same room?

Finally, start going through all the cargo boxes, looking for explosives or stuff to make explosives.

Consider the nature of causality, and whether solving this situation like an LTICs (Linear Time Invariant Causal system) is possible. Maybe a Laplace transform will do it. Realize that all causality means is that the weapon doesn't travel through time or violate the constraints of space time... Check. Like it needed to do that to be an issue. Realize that I am back in possession of my senses, and observe what the shard looks like from my current location.

((FYI, I am actually an undergraduate engineer IRL, hence the discussion of linear systems, which is a real class, using real differential equations (math), to solve real problems, in a way about as tangible as the monster attacking Elen.))

"Uh, thank you for saving me? I don't want to complain, but you made it easier for the corpses to eat me when you were holding me down, and threw my gun away. Still, while this place is terrible, I much prefer it to being eaten by an alien spider and then being eaten by corpses.

So, can we please burn this place to the ground and call it a day?"


Treat my wounds, then collect some more water, it seems to be help with waking people up from their hallucinations.
Spoiler: Elen (click to show/hide)
[5]
Elen bandages up her wounds as best she can: the cuts on her face are easy but the bites on her scalp basically require her to wrap her entire head in bandages, giving her a pretty comical appearance. Once she's done she goes and searches through the supply crates until she finds a container of water. 4 Gallons should probably be enough.

Wilfred seems to ignore the ghost...or maybe he's so lost in his rage he doesn't notice the flaming spirit?

"What corpses, you were never being eaten by corpses".

Harold returns Elen's weapon to her as she digs through the crates.

Hmm... Start calling the man random names. See if he responds to any of them. If he shows no response, choose a name for him at random.



Pathos calls the dirty man various names, from the the normal like "Bob" and "Fred" to the rather outlandish, "Bichael" and "Henjamin". He doesn't respond to any of these. He doesn't respond to anything actually.

Pathos considers for a moment and decides to name him Hamilton.

Woldo takes the elevator down to the temporary storage section.

He walks out, waves to the people, and then promptly starts screaming as entrails spill out of the ceiling and begin to fill the room.

Toby considers the actions of his mentally compromised teammates and then yanks on Yagyu's arm.

"I think they're gonna try  and destroy that shard! Or...or at least blow it up! But if they blow it up...they might scatter it like shrapnel through the entire asteroid belt...Uh oh."

Lemme shit up a map real fast.

Hope that helps.

It would be possible to lob explosives at it...but anywhere on that level is gonna cause exposure. Hell, you guys are getting exposed even in the docking bay.

Hard to say. Everyone looked at the shard, since its a giant glowing thing in the center of the room. Maybe you could go down with your eyes closed and see if it still hurts.

Yagyu searches through the boxes up on the temp storage level and finds a few mining explosives (3) but probably not enough to seriously damage that shard. Maybe there are more elsewhere?

According to the script here you guys are kind of beyond your own help.  However, not beyond the help of others. If someone were to come and get you out then you could probably recover. But as per right now you're far too consumed with the desire to shatter the shard to break yourself free.

Roger that. I'll post more turns when I'm back in control of my character.

Until then, this is Fred Williams signing off.
