Early autumn is pleasant in Cedar Ridge. Summer's hottest days are behind you and the shade of the Douglas fir trees that blanket the town keep the underbrush cool.

North of the lake that divides the town are sets of woods. Interrupted only by mud roads and storm drains that rarely see use outside of the rainy season. This grove is only a mile from the town's one high school. Frequented by teens and alcoholics alike for bonfire parties that leaves the smell of ash in the air. This far east into Oregon the breeze is warm and sluggish, trapped in by mountain ranges.

From where you stand you can hear when the occasional truck passes through Cedar Ridge's main road. Barely. It helps you keep your facing when you're unsure which way is home.

You are in the north in the outskirts of town.

Your heart skips a beat. You shrug awkwardly. "Who doesn't have relatives who fought in the war?" You try to change the subject as quickly as possible.... You glance at your guide's leg. "Even you've got some war wounds, it seems."

>PIT seems amused. "What, this? There was just a little accident during a testing block a couple weeks ago. I've never been within 300 miles of a battlefield, and hopefully never will."

"I see... let's get back to the tour."

>"Of course. Come along, I'll take you to the core offices upstairs."

PIT weaves back through the exhibit, eventually leading you to a door that takes you further into the facility. Soon, you're loading into a small elevator.

>"Each major department has their own network of office spaces on the second floor," PIT explains as she starts typing a passcode into a keypad on the wall. "On the third floor are the department heads' offices, and ADAM's office, of course. We'll get to those in due time."

You watch as the engineer continues pressing keys. The passcode for this elevator is very, very long... "I know we haven't seen everything yet, but something's bothering me about your security," you remark.

>"Really?" PIT sounds genuinely curious. A green light flashes, and she presses the button for the second floor.

PIT leads the two of you through a door into a large office space. Researchers and interns are weaving through a vast sprawl of cubicles, desks and strange-looking computers. A door on the far wall seems to lead into another space with a similar layout.

>"These are the offices for the RF department," PIT says proudly. "I have several research teams that are using this space currently. I'd explain what they're working on, but then you wouldn't be allowed to leave."

She sounds like she's joking, but the image of an automated turret network is still fresh in your mind.... You decide not to press her on that.

>A young man in a lab coat looks up as you walk by his cubicle. "Ma'am, the ordnance department will be starting their scheduled testing block on 5B in twenty minutes," he says, ducking his head in a half-bow toward PIT. "They asked if you'd be attending, again... Should I still just send the interns?"

>PIT crosses her arms. "Of course! I'm not gracing those shitheels with my presence until NISHI shows up at my doorstep, gets on his hands and knees, and begs for forgiveness. Send those kids from the engineering college again."

>"Got it, ma'am."

>PIT turns back to you as her subordinate re-absorbs himself in his work. "Company politics," she sighs exasperatedly.

I know the feeling, you think to yourself...

one overworked department head to another, yes, it's relevant.

this gets us some goodwill, but also gives us an easy in on seeing what the company is up to AND gives us access to a new leadership person to talk with. I don't think our new friend here has much to do with this on a gut level, so meeting another high-up would be useful.

As I approach the main stage the [Labcoat] on the platform changes their (tone?), letting me hear what they were saying.

:ats-labcoat: As you can see here, [leviathan] forces not only combat external forces but also their own.
:ats-labcoat: These ‘T-Grade’ units are specialized in cross-examining and eliminating malfunctioning or subversive [leviathan].
:ats-labcoat: If one were to compare them to our own security department, then the [Hitman]-type unit would be the closest analog.
:ats-labcoat: Fortunately for us, one of their main tactics of elimination rely on structural perforation of a [leviathan]’s form using refined toxins. Harmless to us, but deadly to them.
:ats-labcoat: Truly a wondrous discovery if our goal was to eliminate them.
:ats-labcoat: No, for we need to blend in, and to do that we must understand their security protocols.
:ats-labcoat: While it has been posited that we could construct modified [Flagship]s and [Loader]s templates that could perhaps mimic [Leviathan] in appearance, it would be logistically cumbersome and by no means foolproof.

Might as well [R]ead the passage. And maybe prepare the next passage as well if possible, just in case it switches over before we leave. Don't want to risk another close call like that.

To [Labcoat]:
What do you mean by selectively disabling the T-Grade units? If you mean making it specifically ignore [nation] units that's fine, but if you mean disabling specifically T-Grade units then that might be dangerous for the [planet].
Getting rid of the [planet]'s defense system like that would mean either risking severe harm to the [planet] if [invaders] show up or adding defending the [planet] to the [nation]'s already large workload.

To [A555ex] and my fellow [Talkinghead]s:
I think maybe we should give [Assistant] a break after we're done here. They deserve it, especially with the stress that being here is causing them. We just need to be careful how we word things, so we don't sound like we're dismissing them out of disappointment or something.
And it might be better to visit the HoA alone.

>What was so dangerous that it needed to… punish the [Lieutenant] like that?
It was beginning to think of negotiating with the Planet. This is, of course, not allowed. The Nation's purpose is to conquer the Planet, so even the barest whisper of peace must be quelled. It's... very sad what just happened to the Lieutenant. I wish we could've prevented it. They might have been a useful ally, if we had the tools to shield them from that kind of Rules backlash. Though, depending on how Nation brains work, maybe the Lieutenant will have similar thought processes again, when we're in a position to help.
...wait. Bugs are their brain surgeons? If we can free one or more Bugs from the Rules, then they can pass it along to whoever they work on. Too bad we can't do that yet.

[S]tare at the Bug. Comment that this is the first time you've seen one.

We shouldn't join in with the debate. Too much risk of saying the wrong thing and getting someone's mind melted or arousing suspicion.

Three weeks ago the ground began to shake. Gently, at first, like some drunken giant's wheezing snore.

Whenever winds came from the north, a nameless numb despair gripped the peoples' hearts, but bedrock slept soundly.

On other days the quaking slowly escalated. Cookpot-sized sinkholes were met with eager curiosity. When they started swallowing whole wagons, that turned to terror.

Prominent families sent trusted representatives to the town's sturdiest and most central building, hoping to plan a coordinated response to the crisis.

To the north is the Slant Milieu, where gravity itself bears the scars of an ancient war, and winds blow so fiercely the locals go about on hands and knees, building no structures more than a meter tall. Trees hug the ground like rivers, while watercourses often abandon their beds to stretch upward, waving like glassy flags on knotted looping arcs before touching down again. The apex predator around those parts is supposedly a type of moth.

To the west, through Cerdyn's Pass, is the allied trade-town of Hallux, and beyond it the great nations of the Steadfast. Aid may surely be found there, but not cheaply, and rumor has it they face their own problems of late. Previous thread: https://questden.org/kusaba/quest/res/1034928.html

To the south, Curtaris, a peaceful and prosperous city-state from which few have ever escaped alive. Further south and east, primeval vastness of the Ba-Adenu Forest continues for hundreds of miles, out to the edge of the known world, beyond which some say the clouds become stone, while turbulence like a second sky gapes open below.

Northeast, the Plains of Kataru, home to huge grass-eating beasts, nomadic tribes, and trade caravans. Mythic birthplace of Jack the First, and countless lesser heroes. Most likely the direction in which your kith and kin will end up fleeing if worse comes to worst.

Reality spike, level 9. Once activated, the spike does not move—ever—even if activated in midair. A Might action will dislodge the spike, but then it is ruined. If it could be reverse-engineered and enough duplicates constructed, could simply rebuild the town at slightly higher altitude and ignore further seismic problems.

Acidic Resonator, level 4. Bulky handheld device. Metallic blades within 15 meters at time of activation drip acid for the next hour, dealing increased damage without being corroded themselves. Does not distinguish friend from foe - exercise caution around carpentry held together by nails.

Phase Glove, level 6. Six-fingered gauntlet of glazed ceramic and fungal material. Can slowly reach through solid objects up to wearer's elbow, unless blocked by force field, or allow a one-handed weapon to strike transdimensional targets. Lasts up to 28 hours, but may burn out sooner if too dry.

like, Clive can rest and look at the papers he got while Enid can keep a close ear for something?
Enid would want to be listening for footsteps or voices. If it's coming from North, it's most likely Albert, Roger, and The Farmer
if it's coming from the east, most likely Bec.

Look and listen for any sounds from both the east and north exits. If it’s a rhythmic tapping, it’s Albrt. Adults are going to be louder, so if we hear footsteps, it’s Psycho McShooty.

Any of these types would work, but make sure that the group has some harness they can hook onto the leading wings! And the thing has flaps they can manipulate!

Alternatively, rather than a rollcage, you could have an actual cabin, like this:

Ask him.

You don't have to take the cake from him; you only have to get it first, to show you are the fastest. You can give it to him after that and make him happy, or eat it in front of him and drink his tears to wash it down. Wait no don't say that last part.

Unstructured playtime is important for intelligence. What do you want them to do, even? Only one can race the tobak, and your father has not hinted at what further challenges await. Ask for their help to escape your father's elaborate prison complex.

If all else fails, an excellent incentive would be to allow them all to watch while the latest version gets ripped in half by a tobak bound and determined to get that cake. That might reduce your standing in the eyes of your father, but it would allow you to train the next ones more effectively.

And this is definitely a last resort. Parts of me are still splattered all over the place. Another tick and I've have become one of the feral lost ones.

Tell her the reason you need someone that can fight back is because you want to test how effective the arm is if you were to try and disarm someone. That and you want to see how hard it is for someone to escape a grab from and how strong it is so if she's willing maybe see if she'd be willing to arm wrestle it and than after winning or losing try to see how easily she can escape it's grip.

The old woman has one of the missing keys. My bet is the S. House. I guess it's *possible* she's staying in the crypt though... We need to investigate both locations eventually to see which one she's in, so that we can break/pick the lock to the one she's NOT in.
...ugh, the keys are all the same, aside from their teeth. We need to label them so they don't get mixed up! Do you have some markers somewhere? Or colored tape?

>will not allow him to do to Edward what he wanted to do to Björn
"He" being the thing that possesses people, I gather. Sounds like an alternate personality takes over the heirs. Literally a possession. Which means, yeah, it's one at a time, and Chris is probably fine for now, aside from the ambient corruption in the area, which you felt in your very head.

Sounds like Edward planned to kill himself to prevent a full possession? Then Björn got possessed because Edward didn't even know about him due to his alternate personality, I bet. It's very likely Björn killed the rest of his family, though... it's also possible Edward didn't kill himself in time and instead the demon did it during his death throes.

Hmm. Might have to do with the names of the male heirs? If we can find a list of the heirs, then arrange the bottles on the left side of the rack matching the first letter of each name, and in order, that might work?

Evil space ghost got someone pregnant and is using that connection to try to reach and presumably destroy the world. It's not a "what happened" so much as a what to do about it. For sure, getting the amulet to Chris is top priority. That is... assuming something isn't terribly wrong, and _you_ are somehow the descendent who is prey to the red star, not Chris.

Seems Edward was onto something, a different option other than sacrificing the red one's kin to keep him from returning, but he couldn't figure out certain things, and ran out of time and sanity.

There is apparently already some sort of supernatural influence over everyone, not just the prey, if they were influenced into thinking Edward committed heinous crimes. The amulet might protect against that, letting its bearer find things, where everyone else's perceptions were twisted to lead them to a blank wall instead.

Why did Edward give up his amulet to the gay fish dude? Something seriously wrong with that. Even if the red star is pure hogwash, and Edward simply an ordinary madman, he needed the amulet so desperately he would never have just... given it away. Why did the gay fish dude give it back? Guilt? Hm...

The wine bottles are clearly involved with Edward's "secret entrance in the cellar" but for the life of me, I can't figure out how they'd be used to open it. They can't be rearranged into a different order, they're built into in each slot. Do some of them sink in when pressed, like some sort of switch? No clue what the "pestilential procession of names" may be.

That’s where you’ve seen one of these keys before! That old crow had one! Of course! But which key it is you have no idea… if only you knew what they meant with M.River S.House. Either way, you need to find her tomorrow and get it back.

>The wine bottles are clearly involved with Edward's "secret entrance in the cellar" but for the life of me, I can't figure out how they'd be used to open it.
You try to push them, pull them and even twist them but no matter what you do they refuse to budge. These bottles seem to be built into the shelf itself! Then there’s thing Edward wrote down, the “pestilential procession of names"… what does that even mean? Maybe it’s the names of the male heirs? It’s possible… though you probably need to get into the crypt if you want to find all the heirs names.
>Also take into account Björn is the current heir.
This thing was clearly built sometime in the late 1800s, long before Björn was born. His name will probably not be part of this puzzle.

Leaving the basement enigma for later, you return to the serene light of the kitchen, where your cute little hubby is waiting for you with newly cooked dinner. As the two of you eat you get lost in thought, barely following the small talk Chris is partaking in.

> what is this about sacrifices?

That is what's about sacrifices. Edward sacrificed his family, thinking he was saving them from the red star. Or was framed for doing so. You weren't thinking about any sacrifice other than simply that. Perhaps the witch burning. That did hurt an awful lot...

> the Kråkholme family line returned, with Dragomir as the new heir

It's reasonable to assume that Dragomir was, or was descended from the rabbit depicted in the painting being spared from the witch burning. No telling whether the painting was accurate or dramatized though, or perhaps even altered to add the fleeing matron and child.

>>It's very likely Björn killed the rest of his family, though.
> Is it?

On the contrary, Björn has shown no inclination towards violence so far. Your brief possible experience with him was... rambunctious at best. And his one remaining eye as blue as the sky matched with the photograph of him as a child. It was in no way rimmed in red like the mad eyes you've seen before. Whatever drug, or... effect is turning people toward irrational violence, he is probably not yet touched by it.

Oh right, concrete plans. Yes. Do recall the old map of the house that had the phrase "Where is the dome?!!" inscribed on it. You've been in the attic, and the observatory dome is clearly on top of the house. Can you see the peaked attic roof from outside the house, and where the dome is in relation to that? Might give you some idea where the entrance to the dome might be. If the blueprints did not have the observatory in them, it may have been constructed after the building was finished. An outside entrance, perhaps?

Life is dull.
There’s no other way around it.
You’ve worked hard - you’ve contributed to society. But at the end of the day, all you come back to is that same old TV in your livingroom.

An acrid scent lingers in your hovel. You’d say its the same sight you’ve known for years now, but the truth is that the bits of plaster in the back seem to be peeling off more and more every day.

At least you still had your television set.

You had set the damn thing up a while back - a radio transceiver, typically made for logistical workers hauling goods over long distances. Jury-rigging a spare set to act as a television antennae was difficult, but it was better than nothing.
Still, the microphone dangled off the side, the cord twisting and untwisting as you try to navigate to the mildly interesting soap opera you caught the tail-end of last night.
Turning the knob, a picture starts to form, blanketed under a layer of static. For once, it doesn’t sound like a pre-recorded show.

“Davey, is there a toolbox around? The valve’s broken off, but a wrench should get it handled properly.”
You watch as his little legs slosh through the water, his head swivelling back and forth as he searches for the toolbox. He leans over, grunting as he strains to pull the box out, lifting it above the water and placing it to the side, near the pipe.
As he opens the lid, water gushes out and Davey gives it a gentle push, draining the container before grabbing a soggy wrench.

He’s holding the damn thing with both hands. For a gardener, he really doesn’t have much for upper body strength, does he? Maybe he’s just built that way.
The wrench slips back and forth before finally, he’s able to align the nut with the wrench - and starts to tighten the valve.
With each laboured pull, the trickling stream grows thinner and thinner until finally, the sound of water can no longer be heard from the television.

Then there’s the issue with the clog.
“You can see a plunger, right?”
Davey gives a weak nod, trudging offscreen before returning, plunger in hand.
Sooner than later, there’s the sound of gurgling water, disappearing off into the depths of whatever elaborate plumbing system that his city had concocted.

With his plants safe, you can feel the tension dissipate from Davey, before he slumps down on the plunger he was just using.

“Dang… I haven’t gotten a workout like this in ages…”
Davey absolutely looks winded, drenched in both sweat and water. While a few puddles surround him, neither him or his plants are in danger of being flooded.

“Are you okay?”, you ask, a twinge of concern bubbling up inside of you.

He groans, giving a thumbs up.
“I think the plants will recover fine, I made them to be resilient… I’ll make adjustments later. Hahh… remind me again, was there something else I should be checking on? ”

Well, there were the other two options; his kitchen and the pneumatic pipeline.
Still plenty of time left in the evening to resolve these problems, and you don’t have other plans. But maybe you should say something to him, while he’s recovering from the ordeal?
No. 1064565 ID: 443b73

What kind of problems a broken pneumatic pipeline can cause? I don't know a lot about this but I'm assume it can't suffocate Davey. Maybe it can, is his house hermetically sealed duo to the cave in?
If those are just paranoid thoughts of an ignorant, let's focus on the kitchen.
Unless he is extraordinarily unlucky a flooding shouldn't cause as much damage to the food as it did to the plants, but I'm concern with gas . ...Assuming they burn gas underground, they could rely exclusively on electrical heating for safety. It usually takes hours to fill a room with enough gas from a pipe to suffocate, so it should be relatively safe breathing for now, but sparks and open fires are very dangerous.
