day 5

[The fifth day doesn't dawn at all. In fact, the sky simply isn't there anymore; the only thing visible if you look up is pure black nothing. Most of the carnival itself is no longer visible, having been blanketed by thick white fog; any attempt to enter said fog will result in your body rapidly disintegrating. The street at least still seems to be intact, but with no way out and the fog slowly creeping in, who knows how long that'll last?

Luckily, it seems like the cavalry has finally arrived.]

(OOC: This marks the last day of the event! Anyone who has won a prize from Mayfield's carnival will be able to access both Mayfield and this area through the funhouse, and will be able to take one person with them on each trip they make. If your character is not rescued by the end of the day, they will be disintegrated by the fog and will wake up the next morning in Mayfield with the standard revival effects. You are free to comment in this post regardless of whether your character signed up for the event.)

[When Tachikoma had learned that people could be taken back to Mayfield, it made the usual choice of making sure it didn't leave the area until everyone here in this place is safely "home."

Which is why it is now combing the streets, the carnival, and all over looking for people, anyone who is too weak or sick to get to the fun house for a possible rescue. It skirts the fog and fissures appearing as best it can, but still goes near them to make sure no one is about to sucked up in them as well.

Every so often it will stop looking to announce a message at full blast to anyone nearby:]

ATTENTION! ATTENTION! THERE'S A WAY BACK TO MAYFIELD! If you can get to the Fun House, someone from Mayfield can bring you back! If you can't make it back to the fun house on your own, please let me know! I can take you there to help! Or if you know someone who needs to be taken and can't ask for help themselves, also let me know where they are, so I can bring them there!

[It will be doing this pretty much for as long as possible, constantly going back and forth from the fun house as long as the fog will let it, in the hopes of trying to get everyone out before the entire place is dissolved...]
walking_nuke: (Surprised)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-10 12:35 am (UTC)(link)
[That's a voice he hasn't heard here in this quickly-shrinking foggy town. It sounds like a girl, but—no, that sounds too mechanical, like that one gynoid he met earlier—]

[Balin finally catches sight of the source of the voice—some kind of spider-like Mech? It almost look like one of the Personal Armor Unit designs the AFS had been working on at Edmund Range ...]

Yo! Yo! Over here!

[You now have a guy in a red suit of armor flagging you down.]
genkibot: (Checkmate!!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-10 12:53 am (UTC)(link)
[Tachikoma hear's the shouting and eventually pinpoints the man in the red armor waving at it. It drives over quickly to see what's the matter.]

Yes? Are you okay? Do you need help, or know someone who does?
walking_nuke: Staring right through you. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Neutral ▱ Dazed)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-10 12:59 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah. There's a kid with a green jacket, reddish-brown hair. Name's Caesar Silverberg, I ain't seen 'em around'is place since I got here.

[He sounds a little on edge.]

All we gotta do is get to'a Funhouse? There's an exit'ere?
genkibot: (Things are real!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-10 01:20 am (UTC)(link)
People from Mayfield have a prize form the carnival that let's them come here through these portals in the fun house. They can also take someone back with them one at a time, it seems!

It's the only way back it seems at the moment, so I'm trying to get everyone to go there. The fun house still has some things in it, but with people showing up and gathering, they should be able to hold them back while others get out. I could take you there if you want though, my armor might be able to hold off any attacks until we can get a hold of someone to take you through!

And then once through, I can look for your friend! I can ask other people about them to while I search!

[Balin listens to all that Tachikoma has to say before responding. Every now and then though, he glances to the side, keeping aware of their surroundings. This town is coming apart, something could happen at any time—]

[—who knows, even this 'droid could be some sort of deadly illusion set up by the town ... but he's not paranoid enough to refuse an offer like this. If it is a trap, he'll cross that bridge when he comes to it. So—]

... Ahright. Yeah, ahright, let's do'at.
genkibot: (Hurray!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-10 02:53 am (UTC)(link)
Okay! Would you like to ride in my passenger pod? It might be a bit tight with the armor, but that would give you the most protection, otherwise you can just climb on and I'll drive you there!

On the way we can keep an eye out for others too! Maybe we'll find Caesar and can take them along as well!
walking_nuke: No, the easy way is ALWAYS mined. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Neutral ▱ Listening)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-10 02:58 am (UTC)(link)
[So this 'droid is like a PAU!]

Ahright. If we come across Caesar or somebody in trouble, though, I'll switch out of'a pod with 'em.

[Balin's psyche might be frayed from a full day of falling through nothingness and he's not very well off physically from two more days of living off of giant rats with no real source of water, but he suspects he's gotten off lucky.]
genkibot: (Things are real!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-10 05:50 am (UTC)(link)
Sure thing!

[Tachikoma turns around and opens the doors to the pod on its back.]

Climb in! My monitors are working now too, so you can see everything I see too!

[The monitors it speaks of are three long thin video screens fitted into the back of the pod, essentially allowing for a 180 degree view of the area.]

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-10 06:04 am (UTC)(link)
[Balin takes a quick glance around the interior of the passenger pod before climbing in, albeit a little unsteady. Lack of proper hydration and food is making it difficult to stay coordinated.]

[Damn is the interior nice, though, especially these monitors. Almost reminds him of the kind of setups he'd heard about used by hardcore gamers before Earth fell. Though, as he settles in, he realizes the 'droid said they're working now]

Were'ey not workin' before?
genkibot: (Processing....)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-18 01:13 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, since arriving in Mayfield, many of my systems aren't available for me to use. It's pretty frustrating because as far as I can tell, it doesn't seem to be a hardware issue, but my programming to control the functions are just not there or unable to be accessed. I still can't use my guns or wire shooters, for example.

[Once Balin is fully in the pod, Tachikoma will close the doors and start rolling towards the Funhouse.]
1_truth: (So killer must be...)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-07-10 12:58 am (UTC)(link)
[ This kid is on his way back to house 501. He's heard from the grapevine that it's unlocked and he wants to explore it again. ]

[ Ergo he completely ignores Tachikoma ]
genkibot: (I see you!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-10 01:25 am (UTC)(link)
[Tachikoma is still moving around, checking the houses when it spots Conan heading to 501. It quickly drives up to the boy to get his attention.]

Did you hear? We can get back to Mayfield through the Fun House! Come on, you need to get out of here before the fog swallows up everything!
1_truth: (so innocent)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-07-10 01:27 am (UTC)(link)
[ He stops in his tracks and looks over at the fog and then shrugs. ]

I still have some time. I'm not done investigating this house yet.
genkibot: (Checkmate!!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-10 05:52 am (UTC)(link)
That's not a very good attitude, if the wind suddenly shifts, or the fog suddenly speeds up, you could be caught in it. It's not normal fog, so it isn't good to assume it will act as such!

It's better to get out of here when you're sure you can safely do so with minimal stress!
1_truth: (With the mind of an adult)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-07-10 12:21 pm (UTC)(link)
I'll be okay. It's important to investigate to the fullest ability so we can gather all the clues.
genkibot: (Hurray!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-18 01:18 am (UTC)(link)
I'm all for information gathering, but without any known time frame, it's extremely dangerous and then you might be lost along with the information you find!

Not to mention that is a very dangerous house, I have yet to hear anybody who went in there having an easy time exploring it!
emperor_cowboy: (Hm?)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-10 02:54 am (UTC)(link)
[Hol was tired... he was weak, and had found walking to be difficult. Yet he heard something familiar and looked up from where he had temporarily taken refuge. Looking around, he laid back down... his first thought was that something or someone was playing a cruel trick on him.]
genkibot: (...I can't access the internet?)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-10 05:58 am (UTC)(link)
[Tachikoma is still looking around the area, checking areas not just visually, but using infrared scanners as well, looking for heat signatures as well. Eventually it finds Hol laying down and drives over him.]

Hello? Are you okay? Do you need help? You know you shouldn't lay around here, you should get back to Mayfield!
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Grit Teeth)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-10 06:04 am (UTC)(link)
[He thought about it... and looked over at ... oh.]

... I... Oh... heh. Guess ya finally got yerself out, huh?
genkibot: (<3)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-18 01:21 am (UTC)(link)
Sure did! I had to wiggle my carrier pod a lot, but it help me back out of the window!

Oh, did you hear? We can get back to Mayfield now! Can you make it to the Funhouse? That's the way back!
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Grumble)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-18 03:08 am (UTC)(link)
W-we can?

[He winced and bit down on his lip as he forced himself to get to his feet.]


[He sounds... so convincing. Only not.]
genkibot: (Hurray!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-18 07:16 am (UTC)(link)
[Tachikoma is starting to get concerned. It can see Hol isn't doing too well.]

Are you doing okay? Would you like some help getting to the Funhouse? I can give you a ride!
ohlookboobs: Zidane glancing at something. (Curious)


[personal profile] ohlookboobs 2012-07-12 05:21 pm (UTC)(link)
We.....can finally get outta here?! [Zidane arrived on Day 3 and hasn't been badly hurt during the event. He sounds pretty tired, though]
genkibot: (Hurray!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-18 01:38 am (UTC)(link)
Oh yes! Apparently there's people who can move from here to Mayfield through the Funhouse, and they can take someone with them!

I'm trying to find anybody who might be unable to do so themselves so I can take them there. I'd feel horrible if I got back and found out someone was left behind!
