You consider doing something until the Baby Red is ready, but you can't think of much that won't take too long or involve some, uh, significant risk.

You decide instead to call it a day. You head to bed.

You wake up early the following day.

Willard deserves a pet

Welp, time to go walk into a trap. Discuss with the team a plan of attack, with the intent of getting into and out of the house as quickly as possible.

We had Mom's Red make us a baby red here, not at the house-- that's why we had to wait until the next morning for it to be done, instead of picking it up almost immediately like we did last time. So, yay for not having to walk into a trap!

Make a plan to go explore Mars. We have spacesuits, and the time. Eat breakfast first though, and check on our birds.

Pet Willard, check on Baby Red's progress. If we're good to go on that, check out the warehouse's location, and say Hi to the Porto Juries along the way.

Also let's eat some eggs, maybe toast too

I was hoping for variety muffins. Namely banana-nut (cream cheese, while delicious, is more of a dessert than a breakfast).

With whip cream and strawberries on top.

Breakfast, check news, then lets go about checking out the crate room (bring Bab' Red II and Willard; along with anyone who might have a quiet, safe way to make a hole for Willard to go through).

Quick EDIT: Don't forget to hug Bab' Red II.

That's a great idea.

Hm, have we actually checked out Harold Hope (I think that was the priest from television's name) properly? Matt did mention having a lot of stuff prepared for him once.
Also, even when we wake up early the rest are already awake. Check what they're all doing.

A new day, a new round of hugs for everyone! Even Zane and Crease. Also Lil' Red Version 2, since it should be ready.

Today, our first task is to use Lil Red v2 to figure out roughly where the various bunkers are located, including the bunker with the space-warping distortion.

Our second task will be to check again on the paramilitary corporation moving into the Lower Tiers, see if something happened since then.

Our third task will be to ping Macland good morning, do a checkup on his Nil-infection, then see if Macland or Shirai has any local resources we could tap for getting ourselves some BIG GUNS and proper armor, and then communicate via Blood-Brain-Telepathy the rough coordinates for the bunker exits on earth to see if he or his gal-pal Shirai have any clues on where they might be and who might own those areas. Also, poke Macland and Shirai about the Geomantic Angular book, see what rumors or facts they know about its security or how to gain access it.

Our fourth task for the day will be to test a proof-of-concept blood-powered hydraulic motive system, and a proof-of-concept blood-powered hamster-ball motive system, in preparation for designing the construction for Sanguine Mk2 and Mk3 for the Cult of Enyo assault and Mars Blood-Mine recon respectively.

any more ideas, gentlefolk?

I recommend seeing if we can manifest something from our red. Nothing fleshy, or with a lot of volume mind you... something simple.

Specifically, skin tight spandex pants and shirt.

If there's one thing Dragon Ball Z's Piccolo taught me, it's that every alien super-powered being should have a clothes summoning ability - you never when a weird transformation even will render cloths inoperable, and a ready replacement at hand can remove an unnecessary distraction. One must always be prepared with emergency pants, and if you can "Ka-Pants" summon them, all the better.

Yes, proof of concept blood hydraulic systems. I propose party balloons and cylinders of cloth.

Instant clothing might be good, and quite related to cylinders of cloth for automatons. If emergency pants is too complex, try emergency blanket.

Talk to Mom's Red about how information will be communicated for location so it is useful on a map, if on out planet.

If the gang is going to map out the location of Bunker C, have they thought about any potential interactions between the unknown being there and a Baby Red?
Madd 21st Feb 2018, 11:49 AM edit delete reply
Lets carve runes into our legs to summon disco pants! After we learn how to.
Memo 21st Feb 2018, 8:37 AM edit delete reply
Definitely breakfast, check the news for anything concerning.
Take Willard, mini - Red v2 and Fuse, and go to the door in the crate.
Red can maybe say where it is, and Fuse should be able to crack a plank, discreetly, with his new leg powers. When possible, let Willard explore the place.
Meanwhile I don't see why Finch and Michelle can't explore the mine on Mars on foot. We should have big enough suits.
I'm against informing anyone outside our trusted group about our magic bunker.
And considering our background, Shirai and Mackland are not part of that group.
Madd 21st Feb 2018, 9:17 AM edit delete reply
Pet the cats, then head out to the other bunkers to find there exact locations.

Then we can explore Mars.

Macland is an ally now along with Shrai.

Yus, Kitties are the most important part of the day! :o

They are allies now, against a common enemy. Doesn't mean I trust them.

Oh hey, finally caught up. Only took about 16 hours for 693 pages. Um, hm. Just... first things first, just take care of any basic preparations and checkups. Breakfast, assorted hugs and animal pettings, make sure everybody's still at least as mentally intact as they were yesterday, give the crows a peek. From there... Will Michelle or Caius even fit in the box? I know they can break it once they're there, but what happens if they try to teleport in and the box is too small?

Can we ask mom's red about weather we could use someone in a vegitative state to externality our red. I belive we are able to use people we blood.

Also if we make them think we're after hope now, they would more their awesome def psychic to protect him
