• Team bumbles and fumbles its way through this fight as Valaistra looks over the manufacturing controls.
• The first one goes down easy but the last one starts providing some messy resistance.
• After munching on Beagan Khor is able to wrench it off and hold it. And its finished off…

• Khym is (not) climbing up the air vent…clumsily
• Khors wisdom says to put his sword all the way through its head and so he does.
• Val studies it… the skin is black instead of purple…they should have a cone head, but this one was more normal person shaped. Exceptionally stealthy. He also has a bandolier with masterwork daggers covered in shadow essence. He also has a metal collar with a serial number on it

• The scientists give a rundown of what to expect the floor below, subject bravo, hostile and non-hostile floura.
• Cir asks for a knock out formula and passes it onto val to work on.
• 1 breath of life and 3 knockout guns are made and the team heads down to the final floor
• 3 consoles are there in the first room, 1 for floura, 1 for animals and a security
• Cirwahs checks what the number of the collar correlates to on the consoles

Insert missing bit

• -Cirwahs enters a room called “Maximum Security: Hazardous Species”. The room reveals several empty cages with ripped fronts, as if something broke out. A dead reptilian creature lays on the floor with long incisors for teeth. Val discovers that it is a Sephilon Gorger. Cirwasz tries to pry a fang off to use as a dagger but doesn’t manage to get it free.

• They follow the corrido to the last door before the room,
• Khym says the plan is to call for dr fred and then if no answer beagan torches the room
• The door opens and a giant rustling weed is noticeable but no answer to the name
• Khor identifies the weed as assassin vine, khym says hes got a plan
• Everyone holds to see what this tactical plan might be…. He charges in and distracts the plant for us all to run through…
• We kill the plant and continue down the hall to a room, khym preps his gun and enters.
• He is met by 2 commandos and a man with an cyborg eye.
• Khym lowers his guard and the talk to diffuse the situation, they state dr burkle is requested on floor 3.
• Khor notices they have a necklace with a symbol of the hellion scrapwall cultists
• Khym convinces them that the dr will be in a closet or something up on b2 and we will look in the showers and mess hall

• Khor plays doctor and finds theres a bit of grey foam and a tiny symbol of the cult
• The commands and cyborg leave and the group goes on to the mess hall’s hall and a faint faint blood trail is found.

• Val and khala notice a table of wilting/rotting food and it shows signs of where fred would have gone next.
• Val also finds burkles journal
• Fred, getting to the showers calls for fred again. But the showers are all on and too loud. Khym goes to turn them off and finds one stall with a fleck of blood
• Khala traces it to a grate someone COULD fit in, pulling the grate we find burkle
• She steps out asking to check an injury, khor finds punctures from the cerebral fluid drinkers
• Val offers the hypo gun but profusely denies it and she says why is in her notes. She leads us back to the rec room

• Burkle goes on to explain the carrier wave and val says we need to reclaim the gun.
• Khym asks about the mark and she says if it happened recently there is hope but we need to get to her lab
• Getting to the lab they find its trashed wth blood and bodies everywhere, khor and tate conclude it’s the work of the gorgers
• Burkle goes behind a computer console and gets out a hypogun with gold flecked nanites she had programmed herself, untested, it seems to help khym
• She asks if anyone else has used the hypoguns and val asks if it could act as an inoculation and then volunteers but loses his sense of smell
• Val returns to the brain thingies and make sure it’s an ok idea with burkle.
• Burkle pulls out the special gun from behind a tank and hands it to khym. Suddenly a thunk signals the elevator showing movement.
