Keimi bounds up to a spot on the mountainside and waves excitedly.
"I found it! Look!" she says, gesturing at a small opening in the rock face.
"Found what?" I ask, trudging up the hill. "The last time I went along on an adventure with you, I almost died fighting a giant monster."

Keimi rolls her eyes.
"Firstly, you did not almost die. You were only bashed up a little bit. Secondly, you did not fight a giant monster, according to those documents they forced us to sign," she says, wagging her finger. "Anyway, this leads to a cavity that was shown on the sensor scans of a cavern that, according to the documents that my mom brought home that she definitely wasn't supposed to that I was definitely not supposed to look at; runs adjacent to the area related to those creatures we definitely weren't supposed to know about!"

"This is a lot of layer of not supposing. Am I not supposed to get in deep shit if we get caught?" I ask, stopping to catch my breath.
Keimi ponders for a moment.
"No worries. We definitely won't get in trouble."

"Good."

"As long as we don't get caught."

Communicate with the floating beepy Alexa drone and see if there's anything we can do to gain the upper hand against Punchy Big Boi. Going home brings us back up against the Wendigo, no need to risk that again without trying to find another way out.

>Suit not made for gravity
So... this is some kinda ancient spaceship that got buried in the mountain? Wow.

>Don't think the suit would be of much use
Hold on, if it's supertechy, what if it has a battery pack or something that still has some juice? Maybe that could be connected to that console the little drone wanted us to activate.

Also, if those things are detecting people by way of body heat or whatnot, maybe the suit could trick them into thinking you're inorganic? Or be a way for you to hide through hopping into it and sealing it up. Though if it's clumsy to move about in, I wouldn't take a chance on the former. These guys do have stuff that can (weirdly) melt clothes while seeping into the skin to KO you.

>Just leaving
If all else fails, we could, but maybe we should just take a shot (hah) at that torso thing? For how important it seems it wasn't as well defended as that other room.

EVA suits make for decent armor... Alex could wear one to fight the big monster. Or maybe the Wendigo would be afraid of you if you wore it? Or consider you to not be food at least?

EVA suits are typically custom-fitted to specific individuals, and also are incredibly unwieldy to move around in. You could spend a lot of time and use one as a base materials to *make armor with*, but they aren't really good for fighting.

Well, not this design at least. You'd need an armored mechanical counter-pressure suit or something, or something with powered mobility assist to counteract the 'you're a person-sized inflated balloon and can thus barely bend' issue, and those two things are even MORE custom made.

"Alright, Alex. I've thought of a few options that don't introduce more slavering monsters to the situation.
We can try to force that door open like this floaty eyeball seems to be trying to indicate we should, or I could distract that big monster and lure it past you, so you can sneak in behind it and see what it's got back there, maybe take out the small monsters while you're at it," Keimi says nonchalantly.

"That sounds a bit dangerous."
"As opposed to what? Besides, I'll sure to be fine, because my speed is superior!" she retorts.
"Kei, it's a big, powerful monster and you're a nerd with stubby legs."
Keimi huffs indignantly.
"Okay, whatever. I'll use my small to hide as soon as you sneak past it and I can always scream if something goes wrong and you can come save me," she says, wagging her finger. "Or we can just do something else, if you're that worried."

It's a spaceship, even if it's old the bulkheads should be quite difficult to get up.

Maybe you could be clever about it, though - there might be some sort of manual release to these things built into the wall. That might be more forceable than the door itself.

I suggest that we first see if the flying drone could be used to do the scouting of the dangerous room. To see if it's capable of doing that, first instruct the drone to fly between Keimi's feet and do a 3D scan of topology of everything above it. And then to project a hologram of this topology in front of you.
If it's able to understand such complex instructions and carry them out, then scouting should be a piece of cake.

We'll just break through that door the floating ball seems to really want to get through, but that means getting past the meat creature blocking it up.

"We're going to have to do a lot of damage all at once to get this thing out of the way long enough to open the door."

Keimi steps forward and holds up her staff.

"I'm not good enough at this to use it in a fight, but if I just need to get rid of this thing, I can probably manage. Now watch my back while I do some calculations. If they can sense what I'm doing, things might get messy," she says, preparing for whatever she's doing.

"Formation of spears, thunder of chariots, charge forth and shatter, vermilion flower that blooms and withers into desolation, blacken the earth and skies for as far as I seek!
Gran Fal!


I can feel heat and a shock wave, and when I turn around, the door monster is gone, except for a ragged flesh tube dangling from the ceiling.

"Holy shit, Kei. A few months ago you didn't even know basic attack techniques."

She looks a little winded, but also smug.

"Finding out there's monsters living under where I live has motivated me to practice. Pretty good, right?" she says, doing a little pose with her staff.

"Very impressive. Just like my Itanese animes."

She looks flustered, but is interrupted by a distant gurgling howl.

We'd better get moving. I think we've stirred the hive.

After the meat creature is blasted away, the door is free to be opened.
I have no idea how to open it, until a few hints from floating ball lets me shove the thing open, right as a mob of the resident flesh-beasts come flying around the corner, ready to tear us to shreds.
We slip through and I slam it shut, just in time to hear the pounding and clawing at the metal from the other side.

"What do we do now?" Keimi says, gasping for breath.

"Not going back out there is top of my list," I reply, making sure the door is secured.

"How do we get out of here, then? What if there's no way out this way?"

"Kei, you're new to this, so I'm going to let you in on the cardinal rule of getting into trouble; never think about the consequences of what you're doing. We just need to assume everything will work out."

"How have you lived this long?" Keimi says in a huff, quickly regaining her composure.
"Access to fancy government healthcare and a tattletale that ran off to tell the adults so I didn't freeze to death in a snowbank somewhere."
"Yeah, you're welcome," she replies sarcastically.
Since we have no idea where we're going and the little floaty thing has been eager to get into this area, we'll let it lead us where it wants to go. It must be something pretty important with all the meat monsters strung up over the door. It zips down the hallways and enters a corridor lined pods containing vaguely humanoid figures.

Before we can do anything, the drone swoops over and fits itself into the hollow on one of the figure's chests and it twitches to life almost immediately.
"What do we do now?" Keimi asks, positioning herself behind me.
"I don't know. We don't have a good track record with the things moving around down here."

While we're considering our options, the figure emerges from the pod and emits a flash of light that causes intense pain, but I think that's because it's really dark down here.
"Are we dead?" Keimi says, once the light fades.
"You're the doctor. You tell me," I reply, blinking away the spots that make up all I can see at this point.
"I'm thinking we're not, but I can't see anything to confirm it," she says, obviously in the same state of dazzled by the flash as I am.

All I can see now is spots, but I can just make out a figure getting closer. I hold out my arms defensively and call out while my eyes readjust.
"Hello?" I call out, but there's no answer.

The shadowy figure gets closer and bumps right into my hand, but this can't be the robot. This is something soft and squishy.
"Kei, is that you? I lost track of the robot."
Keimi's voice comes from my right side.
"No, I'm over here. I can barely see anything," she replies.

I immediately jump back. I really don't want to be touching any of the fleshy things that are down here that aren't us.

After my eyes start to recover, I can't see the robot, just a naked girl with the same markings as the robot.
"Kei, did the robot turn into a naked girl?"
"That's my working theory," she replies.

>CHOSE THE FORM OF YOUR DESTROYER
"Do you think it read our minds and turned into that?" I ask, keeping a close eye on it.
"Were you thinking of naked girls when it flashed us?"
"No. Not at that exact moment."
"Then I don't think that's the case. Stop staring at her." Keimi says, glaring over at me.
I keep myself between Keimi and the robot girl.
"I'm not staring, I'm keeping on guard for a potential threat," I retort. "What do we do now?"
"I don't know. This is a new one for me," she replies.

Keimi peeks out from behind me and there is a moment of silence, until I can feel a dull thump on my leg. I have been struck by a small, soft fist in the thigh.
"Hey! You're definitely staring."
"Am not," I say defensively. "But I am noticing she kind of looks like you a bit."

Keimi looks the robot over.
"I think we both got scanned and the result got averaged out. Maybe some kind of disguise or to be able to interact with other species." she muses.
"Must have got the boobs from me," I observe and immediately get punched again. "Urk! Well, it can't be from you."
Another punch. A few more hundred like that and I'll be in real trouble.

I guess I should figure out what to do instead of standing here being abused.

Tell Kei if she doesn't want you ogling the robot she can give it her coat.

Greet the robot directly, ask it what its name is, and what it's going to do now. Is it going to follow your orders, or does it want something from you?
In the former case, ask it to explain the purpose of this facility, and maybe also give details about what the weird monsters are, and how you can get rid of them.

Try to provoke a verbal response from the robot. Compliment her markings, how tall she is, and how she's not beating on you with puny fists.

Do you think the guys that made these robots were a bunch of perverts? If it's a weapons system, there's not much of a need to give it a good hologram that could make really nice pinups.

Wait, robot, how sentient are you? If you're very sentient and NOT programed a chat bot, sorry for treating you with disrespect.

We dress her in Keimi's coat, which doesn't really fit, but it covers some things.
After trying to speak to her, get her to speak or communicate in any way for a bit, something clicks and she dashes back the way we came.

Keimi squeals and stomps her foot.
"She's gonna let all the monsters in if she opens the door!"

This communication barrier is just going to be a problem, isn't it?
