You ask Caius if he needed to breathe as a ghost, or if he felt any differences in temperature.

"I don't... think I did?," he replies. "Didn't really think about it, I guess. Nah, I don't think I was breathin'. Didn't really notice tha temperature thing."

You ask Caius if he feels drained at all.

"Nah, I feel fine. I--" He takes a step forward to get out of the powder... and then he stops, putting a hand on the counter. "Oh, nope. Nevermind, I'm full o' shit. Yeah, I'm definitely feelin' it. Tired, kinda out of it."

While Dr. Finch begins to prepare some sea food that you bought while in Southden, you explain Bunker X to everyone more thoroughly--the rules, the story behind it, everything.

Shortly after you finish, you check on your rats. They have arrived at the apartment building Howler was staying in. Slipping through cracks and such in the building, you think you can pretty easily get them into the tunnels below.

Neat :)

Send in The Ratty Bois, and do some checkup with Elizabeth.

Oh, let's ask if the nerd Fuse would want to be all ghostly. Can he light the candles in ghost form? Can he be more corporeal than Caius, for whatever psychic reason?

Finch and him could probably mess with that for a while.

If we test the pyrokinesis while projecting, we ought to keep a few fire extinguishers handy. I wouldn't be surprised if it's hard to aim in that form, assuming he can do it at all (and since it's a brain mutation, he might not be).

Don't forget to bring food to the Mars bunker (we should never be forgetting).

We should have dinner first so we can be completely uninterrupted when doing the rats. We'll want to go over with the group how we're going to do this: are we just going to constantly shift perspective between rats and then cleantex ourselves to draw a map later? Do we want to sync someone else so they can draw a map while we do this (this'd be new grounds - syncing blood-abilities with a thrall)? Also we should ask if anyone wants to volunteer to share mental strain as this will likely be a long and tiring process (due in part to being limited to the speed at which the rats can move).

Otherwise I've thought of names for the rats. Seeing as how we have 5 of them running around willy-nilly through a maze of tunnels, how about Pac-Man, Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde?

I second this naming choice

Oh, I dig those names.

I like the idea of possibly distributing the mental strain of scouting. Let's make sure we have graph paper on hand so we can draw maps-- I think drawing a map as we go will help us know where to go next, maybe cut down on some of the confusion that might ensue from trying to perceive through a bunch of rats at once.

Let's try first keeping them together in a group, then have them split off if there are forks that we feel like we really need to explore-- the idea here is to get a sense of the major junctions and particularly the area around Thale's headquarters, after all.

I think we bought them some basic supplies so they wouldn't need every meal to be hand delivered. I might be remembering wrong though.

I posted this last page but I was slow.
The generator Faraday is hooked up too is essentially taking away his extra bulk, so if an imprint just needs less energy to properly compress and manifest... dosnt that mean we just need to crank up the energy drain?

you can give yourself a name you know, even if not logged in to comicfury.

The generator is not stealing power from Faraday like a siphon, the generator is chewing away at Faraday's pattern of existence and extracting power from that process, meanwhile Faraday is not bound to the grnerator, but until she can be helped to remanifest her spread out existence willstill be within the generator's range of affect.

tl;dr, generator does not give the ghost succ, generator bites astral flesh, experiment Odin made Faraday spread thin astrally and drink deep of Earth's electromagnetic field to make it sustainable.
