Once more, you are Asali Zakiya, an unfortunate psychic Bubble Touched. Right now you are inside of the mine.

It is very dark, but with your eyes adjusting and with your (crappy) flashlight guiding your way through this opening tunnel. There's some sort of machine hanging open to your right.

Something important comes to mind, you are actually a mechanic! You could fix that, along with other equipment, if only you had the right tools. It has been your trade for a few years. You recently lost your job, which is actually why you were out drinking.

Although this isn't a paying job, it's nice that your skill may aid in your survival on this damned island.

Where shall you go, and what shall you do, Asali?
No. 49310 ID: 6550ad

Let's check out that machine.
No. 49318 ID: 18212a

Can you identify the machine? I guess we'll need some proper tools to fix it.
How's the hand by the way?
No. 49322 ID: f31556


So we were a mechanic for years, then got fired, went out drinking, and immediately woke up here in this strange place with crazy weird shit going on...?

That sound like some grade A conspiracy stuff if I ever heard some. Why were we fired? Did we have any enemies? Did we notice any spooky G-men observing us before being fired?
No. 49330 ID: 632862

What job were you working on when you were fired?

File 125365271698.png - (97.60KB , 777x777 , BBQ067.png )

You check out the inside of the device. It seems to be a power switch. You'll need to find a wrench in order to fix all of the loose parts.

Your hand feels fine. You know it doesn't look fine but the bandages put it out of the way for the time being.

You were fired because you drink too much, and poor customer service. The only enemies you could have made would have been customers you insulted.
No. 49338 ID: 6550ad

Well, nothing to do here for now, let's continue exploring to the left.

You travel further into the mine, under you are facing a wall straight ahead. The tracks curve to the right. You see a pair of glowing blue eyes.

Whatever it is gives off a pained screech, but doesn't move.
No. 49352 ID: 6550ad

Try to communicate with it, say hello. Keeping the hammer ready, just in case.
No. 49354 ID: 18212a

Looks harmless, as it seems tied up.
[precog] Check out the ore processor.
No. 49355 ID: 036360

Take one more step forward.. just enough to get a good look at it with the flashlight.
No. 49359 ID: 950eaa

Let's get a better look at it
No. 49368 ID: 632862

It's a small mammal caught in a large creatures jaws, if I'm seeing what I think I'm seeing.

File 125367432692.png - (122.94KB , 777x777 , BBQ069.png )

You take a couple steps forward and shine your light on the creature. It seems to be a pure white lizard like creature stuck underneath a rock and in the straps of a rusty old jet pack.

The jet pack is making strange noises, and giving off spark like shocks from parts of the equipment. It seems like this creature was just trapped in this position soon before you got to it.

The creature is writhing and screeching. If you're going to do something, you don't have too much time to do it.
No. 49486 ID: 476456

can you teleport it out?
No. 49487 ID: 4e9b58

Daww. Well let's get the poor thing out, just make sure it doesn't hurt itself.
No. 49488 ID: aba0a3


Your ability is limited to yourself.
No. 49493 ID: 43d730

See if we can use MECHANICAL KNOW-HOW to stop the jetpack from exploding, then shove it and the rock out of the way.

Keep an eye out for whatever caused this.
No. 49494 ID: 950eaa

Let's see if we can't toss the jetpack off of the creature and possibly prevent it from exploding.
No. 49502 ID: aba0a3
File 125367695252.png - (199.79KB , 777x777 , BBQ070.png )

You go over carefully, and undo the strap on the pack, and help the little beast out of its death trap.

You go to see about possibly stopping the jet pack, but it looks like you might not have the time to do it.

The little fellow climbs up onto your head.
No. 49506 ID: bd6ea1

It's worth trying, but while ready to jump back. Then it's lizard-petting time. "And who might you be?"
No. 49511 ID: 632862

Maybe you should move away from the front of the jetpack while you try to turn it off. That way if it suddenly rockets forward you won't get smashed by it.

That seems... suboptimal.

I don't suppose you used Warp in the split second before the explosion caused you grievous bodily harm?

You open your eyes, it's a little foggy at first. You aren't injured anything serious, but the concussive force of the explosion seems to have moved you to a new area. Your new friend seems to be waiting for you.

Your flashlight is in your right hand still, thank the gods for wrist straps.

Try to get back to where the jetpack is so you can get your bearings. The explosion couldn't have thrown you in anything but a straight line.

You get back up to your feet and trudge the tracks back into the last area. There's a big hole in the ground where the boulder and jet pack were.

Your new lizard friend is still gone.

Otherwise you may as well go back East now and check out the mining cart. That ore refinery machine doesn't seem useful at the moment.

I think the mine cart is broken.

But to move it along I say store something else in pocketland, likesay the bucket. And then make our way back to that light switch to try and fix it.
No. 49665 ID: ccb486

a wrench is ALWAYS useful, let's toss that stick into the pocket.
No. 49666 ID: 276781

Find our way back to that BROKEN MACHINE we found and apply a healthy dose of WRENCH to FIX it.

Then we can inspect the minecart in greater detail. And possibly ride it.
No. 49667 ID: 4e9b58

I have a feeling we'll be fixing several things in this place. A stick might be a piece of something but a bucket isn't going to help us much with repairs.

You put the bucket away, and take out the wrench and follow the tracks back towards the broken machine near the entrance. You loosen and tighten and work for a few minutes. You find 2 Points jammed underneath some of the parts, and manage to get it to power on.

Noises come from all over the mine, now that the power was on.
No. 49673 ID: ccb486

Head towards the loudest noise, loud things are always exciting.

There are no lights to turn on. If there was a lighting system inside of the mines, they were either destroyed or removed. So you go to check it out with your flashlight.
No. 49992 ID: bd6ea1

Oh what could it be, walking along carefully.

You step down the tracks into the next area, close to the hole, you shine your light on the Ore Refining machine, seems it made the noise when it kicked on. The power being turned on gave it some life.
No. 50026 ID: 632862

Too bad you don't have any ore. Hmm, check the slots anyway. Maybe there's something left in there.

No. 50031 ID: 4e9b58

I don't think there's anything in the inventory that can be used here. Might as well check out the other noises, if any.
No. 50035 ID: aba0a3


There are no other noises.
No. 50036 ID: 4e9b58

You said noises came from all over. That usually indicates more than one.

I guess there's nothing else to do but follow the tracks.
No. 50041 ID: 632862

Yeah, go East again. Is it just me or is it slightly brighter in there with the power on? Must be a few things making light, if not really designed for that.
No. 50044 ID: aba0a3
File 125376344867.png - (138.77KB , 777x777 , BBQ082.png )

It has gotten slightly brighter. The green lights on the machines give a dim glow, increasing visibility. Just not a whole lot. You come back to where the cart is.
No. 50047 ID: 4e9b58

Do the tracks go any further than that? We may have to check in the hole.
No. 50049 ID: 632862

Shine your flashlight above that thing you're looking at right now. There's some kind of painting up there?
No. 50057 ID: aba0a3
File 125376431956.png - (130.42KB , 777x777 , BBQ083.png )

Up above the gate up against the wall is a painting. You shine your flashlight to get a better look. It is night and day on each side of a Mountain. On the very top of the mountain is a deity from the continent Mingxia.

The God, Rong, is a red firey beast covered in little but muscles and chains. He is a warrior of the Sun, but hides from the moon.

Large mountains or volcano are often where his worshipers live, or worship. This could be the sign of a nearby temple. Something to keep in mind.

Below the painting is a gateway, which seems to be pretty wrecked. The pipes are all over, and whatever is supposed to be inset behind one of the pipes is missing.
No. 50062 ID: 950eaa

inspect it further
No. 50067 ID: aba0a3
File 125376523463.png - (61.36KB , 777x777 , BBQ084.png )

You inspect the pipes and the gate, and realize that if you want to work the gate at any point ever, you will need to reassemble the pipes.

You can do it with your wrench, but it will take some time, and effort...

To be continued...

You feel the blessings of your god guiding your hand. Switching back and forth between the flashlight and the wrench to adjust the pipes.

You spend a rather short time despite not having instructions. The pipes are arranged, and fit perfect where they (as best as can be determined) once were.

However, despite the pipes being done, the gate does not open. It's a good guess that whatever the diamond shaped inset on the top left of the door is what's missing.
No. 53572 ID: 9cc8fd

Ah, but it's in the pocket dimension. We'll need to switch something with it to bring it into our inventory. What'll it be, gents?

I vote either wrench or stick because they're the only items I can identify.
No. 53758 ID: aba0a3
File 125426933524.png - (290.92KB , 777x777 , BBQ091.png )

You take that ore back to the refinery, and drop it in. You hear a very loud noise, followed by more as it is processed for people who are no longer present. The machine rewards you with 4 points for your hard work.

Shortly after the green light flickers and something inside of the machine sounds like an explosion. The metal outside of the refinery gives a loud "clunk," and then a bunch of skittering noises before it stops completely.

The mines grow a little darker.
No. 53778 ID: 6550ad

Follow the tracks, is there any place we haven't explored?
No. 53784 ID: 4e9b58

Since it's broken anyway, I wonder if we can't open it up and find the source of that explosion inside? Would the wrench help here?

No. 53868 ID: 6550ad

See if you can identify the missing parts of the engine with your mechanic skills. Also trying to fix it won't hurt, use the wrench for said purpose.

You bend down near the scary water and tug at the chain. It won't budge a single millimeter. You can see something in the shallow water, but it's covered in mud, hard to make out.

The water is glowing as well. Which is what is lighting up this area.

That's... odd.

Take your stick out of the pocket dimension. Poke the thing in the water with it.

Erm. Well I can think of two things. One, salvage parts from the other two mechanical objects you've found so far... and
Two, backtrack. There's a trap door on the porch of the house you woke up in that you haven't entered yet.
No. 54246 ID: aba0a3

>Erm. Well I can think of two things. One, salvage parts from the other two mechanical objects you've found so far... and

Well, if you salvaged the power supply, this machine would no longer receive power and wouldn't work, and if you try and open up the refinery, your guess is that it would be dangerous. There's also no guarantee that the parts in it would match. I think you could find some gears and pieces around here if you tried.

>Two, backtrack. There's a trap door on the porch of the house you woke up in that you haven't entered yet.

That's a possibility, but do you really want to go all the way back to that house right now?

The monster shouldn't fit through the passage. But if it tries to peek through the door, hit it with the hammer.

Try to fix the engine to drain the water in the room. I think I saw some gears behind it, see if you can fix the engine with those.

Once you are inside of the watery cavern you prepare your hammer just in case the monster tries to enter. This proves to be a good idea because the lizard begins to slide through the door with some effort.

You slam your hammer down on its head, splattering black in a violent wave as its body mostly collapses to the ground, halfway in the door.

You tie the rope to the chain and the rope into the feeder slot of the machine and start to crank it. It is difficult to do at first, but with enough effort it finally cuts some slack, and starts reeling in the chain.

You notice that the water is lowering, draining out from the pool of water. You'll be able to go further now if you wanted.

You step into the mostly drained area where the pool once was. Most of the floor is made of stone. there are some muddy areas, and some places where water still settles.

You can see a piece of a broken chain sitting in the water. Probably from the drain system you just had to jimmy rig.

There's also some weird ledge on the west wall, and a path further into along the cavern.

You enter the Deeper Pools. The blue ore did not drain from here very much as it wasn't effected much by the drain in the previous area. It does however give a walkway.

You don't want to go near the blue ore, and you can see light in the dark area past the blue ore.

There is a floating orange flowing ore wing in the blue.

The item you picked up is a blood soaked Electrician's Manual. Which you don't need because you are pretty good at it already. However, there's a chart in the back pages which state, "300 Volts, 75 Amps."

>Head back, dig around in the water with the stick. I think I figured out what precog was telling us; the triangle thing that opens the portal is in the water.

You sit there and consider digging around in the water, of which there are an incredible amount of spots to try and check. Perhaps you should give specific places to look at.

Although it's always good to have a general idea, vague suggestions are very difficult to perform. If there's a specific place you want to investigate, you can do that.

It's not a problem to do a couple of tasks at a time, but you really need to steer clear from something like, "Investigate every area of the room," or, in this case, "Check all of the blue ore."

Lastly, do you remember any water in the premonition?
No. 57878 ID: 632862

Well the bottom of it was wavy like it was sticking out of water. Blargh.

I feel like there's no solution for either the bridge and the portal. The only thing I can think of is to warp across the chasm now that it's available again. I guess there's precog too, but I've no idea what to use it on, or even where.
