Gurps Skill Roll [3d6] = 10

The Rook Industries contact gives a curt nod, signaling that terms are acceptable. His fingers perform a rapid series of keystrokes on the computer's keyboard, pushing a button shortly afterward. Within seconds, the contract is printed out and reading for signing. He pulls a pen out of his front pocket and hands it to you.

"I've taken the liberty of stating the conditions of the agreement in plain language for you, once you are doing reviewing it we would like for you to sign here,"
he points to a dotted line next to a large X.

ok so what does the contract say?

Hot Streak "What nothing about my first born? Or requiring a blood sample? Very well let me see what the contract says." the pyro reads the contract over while having his men and Vorpal watch the Rook Inc. men.

"Uhh...what are those things? Anyone ever see anything like that before?" He walks over to Granite and makes himself granite. "Those things were making me ill. Some kind of radiation, I think. Hopefully transforming with help."

"I guess we move the rubble to see beyond?"

Hot Streak lets out a sigh and signs the form as indicated and hands it over to the man in the gas mask "Here you go. Might I inquire as to how you wish to keep in contact with myself so that we can work together to follow the contract to the letter? Also might I get the name of the man I am going into business with?"

For Monsieur:

Sand Drift fills you in on the details regarding the zombie-like creatures. Apparently, there was a brief invasion that took place in the Industrial Sector, near one of Rook Industries' new power plants. The invading army was comprised of creatures like these, some more cybernetic than others, but all trained and efficient like soldiers of any other army. No one knows why they attacked the power plant, nor why they all suddenly vanished after a brief skirmish with heroes. They haven't made any other appearances until today, so not much else is known about them, most of the bodies and tech disappearing with them.

You join Granite in clearing out the rubble. With the combined strength of the two of you, you manage to create an opening for everyone to enter a grate on the floor, formerly underneath the pile of rubble. Looking down below, you can see a green glow. The glow reminds you of the creatures you found strewn across the warehouse floor. You hear Shrike chime in the background, "Ladies first."

Sand Drift just rolls her eyes, as if she hadn't heard that before in a potentially dangerous situation. Sending a stream of sand down to scout out the area underneath, a few seconds go by before she summons the stream back. "My sand picked up some crystalline deposits down below, most likely more of the stuff that those zombies back there were made of. Could be dangerous to breathe in."

Shrike volunteers to stay topside and keep watch of the area since he didn't bring any breathing equipment with him. Sand Drift, too, stays with Shrike, not wanting to take any chances with getting sick from potential radiation in the air.

-------

For GreyWolfVT:

The contact gives you a number for his cell. Judging from its make, it looks like a burner phone. "You will be able to remain in contact with Rook Industries through me." He asks the same of you so that they have someone to call to relay new information and future business arrangements. "I am referred to as Knight 8B. On behalf of Rook Industries, I thank you for entering into a contract with us. May our business together prove prosperous for us both."

He collects the contract, double checks to make sure the signatures are there and feeds it into the suitcase, much like a FAX machine. He then motions for one of his guards to retrieve the gun and for another to hail their transport. "Once we have the weapon analyzed, we will be able to start sharing information with you on Symbiosis' whereabouts. You mentioned you had a lead for us?"

Hot Streak relays the location of the warehouse he and Vorpal recently raided to the contact. "Is there anything more you'd like from me?" the pyro says with a cool head despite a nagging feeling that he is being screwed over in this contract. Sharing a knowing look to Vorpal to relay that feeling while wearing his usual smirk.

"You mentioned the origin of these creatures by name, Symbiosis. Reason would lead me to believe you know more about him than what you've let on. Where was the last time you saw him? Perhaps a description of his base of operations would be a nice start, where you met him, details like that. The more we know about the guy, and how his mind works, the better we can understand his tech, all assuming he actually made the rifle you've shown us."

Hot Streak lets out a long sigh "The last time I and my sword armed friend here saw that prick was on his island. He mad us fight his little creations I suspect he hoped we'd die fighting them. His little super mutant army. Other than that it was not until more recently that we saw his creations here I suspect he is moving forward with some plan to rule the whole city with his monsters. I'm enjoying putting those creations down. He also creates apparently these weapons to arm the monsters with. As if they aren't already enough trouble with out them."

Is the form I'm in now able to withstand the radiation? I guess, do I notice any ill effects?

No ill effects while in granite form.

He turns to Granite. "So. Ready to head towards danger again? Let's find out what those deposits are." Geodan cracks his neck, lifts the grate, and hops down.

For Monsieur:

Granite follows your lead as you both crash into the depths of the tunnel below the warehouse. The impact stirs up some dust in the air, but you are unphased by it. As your eyes adjust to the darkness, the first thing you notice is that the tunnel was collapsed too, not just the entrance, though whoever did it did a poor job in sealing all the cracks. Through the rocky rubble, you can see a distinct glow in the darkness, those crystals from earlier.

[3d6] = 13

As you start to clear the rubble, you can hear the sounds of something trying to do the same on the other side. The sounds are unintelligible, as if they came from wild animals, but have a distinct 'zombie' like shriek to them. Whatever it is, it sounds like there are a lot of them.

Granite just kind of looks over at you with an expression that says, '50/50?'

------

For GreyWolfVT:

"An island you say? This is a good start. We will know where to look now. Thank you for your cooperation." It is at this moment that you hear the deafening sound of a transport land up above. "Looks like my ride is here. We will be in touch shortly." With the high tech rifle secured safely, the Rook Industries group departs.

Once they depart, Vorpal looks over at you and says sarcastically, "That went well." You could tell he wanted to crack some heads, just to prove that he could. The fact that nothing happened was an incredible display of self-restraint on his part.

Hot Streak nods "Indeed a little too well, either I'm better at smooth talking than I thought or we're getting the shaft on this deal. I don't like it. Trust me I wanted to burn the body guards and watch you skewer the man in the gas mask." he says with grim satisfaction "But we both know we could have done so fairly easily, unless the man in the mask had powers of course. I imagine being a tech employee he likely is technologically enhanced abilities to say the least. However we can't have an army to burn the world if we kill everyone we meet. If that damned psycho and cowboy hadn't went their own paths we would still have great allies. So now we are forced to locate more like us. Come lets take out leave of this place." heading back to HQ he motions to Vorpals' men to follow and signal the rest to come with. "Maybe we can find some of those Lost or Skulls to kill on the way back."
