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.)

[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!)

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!)

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.]

[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.]
walking_nuke: (This is what my recruit gun looked like)

Sorry about the delay, had to focus on something else!

[He takes this opportunity to relax as best he can. The way this Other Mayfield has been coming apart, though, he's got this nagging expectation that something will happen the moment he lets his guard down.]

Are your weapon systems even'ere? Did you check?

[Though that probably counts as a hardware issue, Balin has a hunch about this.]
genkibot: (Tachikoma here!)

S'okay, took me awhile to get back to this, obviously. >.>

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-08-10 06:50 pm (UTC)(link)
[Tachikoma is moving at a gentle pace for Balin's comfort and keeping many of its eye sensors scanning around in case it notices someone stuck and unable to call out.]

Oh yes, the machine guns are still in my arms, though I don't have any bullets for them currently. Oh, and my grenade launcher is still in place, port and all!
walking_nuke: Now I'm just confused at a higher level. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Headtilt ▱ Unsure)

It's all good :D I can backtag fo' DAYS. (As evidenced by this being a over a month later!)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-09-18 05:21 am (UTC)(link)
[Balin would be more able to show his appreciation for this if he wasn't such a mental wreck at the moment. Though, he will if he runs into Tachikoma later in the "real" Mayfield—assuming they get out of this just fine, that is.]

An' you're sure it ain't just not havin'a ammo? You can't even dry fire?
