Ok, the path stops here after leaving the goblins' place. It intersects another tunnel. Dugut says that left heads to the river, and right goes to the magma flow. People going both directions have turned up missing, lately.

Left to the river!

Let's definitely head to the river first, we might find some iron so we can make a bucket for some magma.

Keep your eye on that hole in the upper left corner, and approach cautiously. Ask the goblin if he sees anything good in said hole. Do you hear water or anything?

yeah, I can faintly hear water from the other side of this room.

Hmm, looks like there's three large creatures farther back, nothing in the hole.

it looks like a normal one, from what I can tell.

What should I tell him to do, exactly?
No. 262918 ID: 8e18cd


What is their height? Any features you can recognize with the heat vision. I assume the details are indistinguishable, but a frame, height and features like the number of fingers should tell us what we might have to deal with.

Hmm, big.. I'd guess about about two and a half meters tall or so, heavy frame, and it's got only two fingers. They're pretty far away.
No. 262934 ID: 1854db

Looks like trolls. See if we can get their attention for a visual, and confirm it before opening fire.

Definitely aim your gun at them though and prepare to fire.

Tell him to watch your back and make sure nobody sneaks up on us.

Hook up the heavy maser and fire at will.

Proceed and attack if necessary, I don't think you should just shoot at them until you're sure they're not docile.
No. 262963 ID: 8e18cd

Trolls indeed. You should attack, but make sure you won't get flanked. That Maser is pretty damn good, but damn. If we get in CQC, we're fucked. Make sure that goblin is covering our ass.
No. 262966 ID: c71597

Looks like there might be a fight ahead. Tell him to watch your back, be ready to step in if they get too close and keep an eye on the hole.

Load up with delicious heavy weapons and prepare to blast some weird ass creatures.
No. 263083 ID: a41aaf

Aren't troll eggs pretty valuable? Hide in the hole, make some sort of noise to attract them past you (or have Dugut act as a lure), then sneak behind them to pilfer the eggs. This also works as a flanking manoeuvre.

OK, I'm in the hole now, they aren't trolls, but three large bipeds. They appear to have no eyes.
No. 263257 ID: 383006

Shout down at them if they want some cash to see if they are sapient/hostile. Being that you're in the hole, they probably can't easily get to you, so you will not be giving up the advantage of the high ground/good ranged attacks.

That's Dugut.
No. 263273 ID: 1854db

Wait for them to stop then wave your gun out there to see if they can see at all.

Shoot the bottom left one, from our perspective. It's got the best angle to throw things back at you.

I blast one of them right in the head! It lets out a horrible low bellow and a cloud of its unnatural colored blood boils out of the wound. It falls to the ground. That seemed to scare the other two off.

Look for tracks before deciding. If you find stuff indicating that the big uglies cam from any direction then go after them.

If you don't find any tracks then I guess downstream works.

Downstream or Upstream?

Any information about where the river might be headed or where it came from? Maybe the slightest of clues? Some rumor you heard?

Else you could just throw a coin.

OK, there are some tracks headed to the right, which is upstream. As far as I know this river could originate at an aquifer or it could come from the Forbidden Place.

Well then, sneak your way forward and keep an eye out for anything weird.

Hmm, what's this? It looks like a boat or something. There's also a side passage that I suspect heads toward the chasm if my directional sense is correct.

No. 271685 ID: c71597

Looks like there is a compartment under the seat and one in the front of the boat. Check out both of those.
No. 271695 ID: ae8d5b

Do you mean you can't see anything from where you are or is it empty?

No. 272422 ID: 383006

Let's steal the boat before he comes back. We chan check the leather thing while we're on the water. Use the oar and let's go downstream because paddlin updstream is a bitch.
No. 272577 ID: a41aaf

Or sabotage it. Pilfer the spark plugs from the motor. That way the slaver has a boat he thinks he can use but can't, and we have a boat we can use but no-one else can.

Well then, unfold the cloth and the leather thing. Could be something useful.

Wait...so we now have both his keys and his spare keys or something?

Check the other compartment. Take whatever other people suggest.
No. 274139 ID: 99433a

Check how much gas there is in the motor. It seems like we've found out why people are disappearing in THIS direction, so why don't we go downstream a bit?

What's the texture of material of the tabs? They look like they're either earplugs or coinage.
No. 274160 ID: 383006

Tabs are coins. Put the stuff back in the wallet and take the wallet. Let's check down the tunnel. Maybe it's a hideout.

None of these fit, but one of the ones I picked up earlier does.

These must be to something else. Well the little one works on the shackles in the front compartment.

I don't see any gas cylinders but this tank has is about half full of whatever passes for fuel for this thing.

They look just like the other things I picked up, you'd have to have really weird looking ears to stick these in them.

We'll head downstream in the boat. After traveling for a while I can see a light up ahead.

We should be deep underground. This has been going slightly deeper as far as I can tell.

Hmm, there's nothing on the scanner. Background radiation is slightly above normal, but nothing dangerous. The passage curves to the left after a while though. I'm getting some possibly odd mineral readings, though I'd have to go farther in to check it out.

I don't think either of these cultures have any where near the technology level to recognize the significance of radioactivity. And this doesn't look like a regular mine.

Imli, be extremely careful. Does your race or any other race you know of have a myth of a "hell", a demonic underworld? Because you've just found it.

This actually looks like the v0.28 glowing pits as opposed to v0.31's hell. That's good, right? I think you could clear those. And that was with the dwarves' technology.

The best course of action would be to do something to block off the tunnel. Is there any way you could acquire explosives or something to collapse it? Bad things come out of those pits. Do examine the blue ore, though. It's almost unimaginably valuable.

Getting hold of some explosives shouldn't be a problem. I can't fit down the hole, there's all kinds of pipes and stuff over the top.

So: microgravity environment, lower pressure but nowhere near vacuum. May or may not have been previously depressurised, but not in the recent past (floating liquids, no condensation frost).
There have been vacuum exposure incidents (all involving sudden decompression). None have been fatal.

That symbol suggests a body about the size of yours laying down with arms up. I would recommend assuming such a position atop it, but only if you can keep ahold of your weapon and *not* break your adhesion of the wall.

True, but if the race that used them wasn't gigantic, then they wouldn't be able to reach the panel. Because of the design of the doors and hallway, I don't think that this area is supposed to be lacking gravity.

It seems pretty clear that this place very much *wasn't* meant for ZG. To clarify my earlier post, the point was to cover the entire symbol with something it reacts to, which is to say your living body.

You should retreat out of the dust cloud and try firing your weapon down the hallway on its lightest settings (aiming away from any 'windows' or thin looking parts of the wall. If we run into anything further down the corridor, we don't want to be unable to shoot it without frying ourselves.

Combustion might be a bad idea. Imli can still breath and the pressure is low, so the ppO2 could be higher than normal. I'm not too hot on my low pressure stoichiometry so I'm not sure exactly what effect that would have on the combustion wavefront, but using up what little O2 remains in the air may not be conducive to continued respiration.

Testing a separated sample would be a good idea though, but I'm not sure if we're carrying anything that might help with that.

Guys, increasing the air flow != diving headfirst into space. If there is a slow air leak in the hallway, that debris will block it up. If there is a GAPING HOLE, then we will be able to tell by looking through the window later on. If there is no leak at all, the air flow will slow down and stop.
