^You're right. ;)
Jason continues digging. He digs further to the left and down a bit. Suddenly the ground gives way and he finds himself falling… for just a split second. Not much of a fall. But an underground cave! He decides he should keep moving and visit this cave again later. Perhaps he can catch up to Justin and figure out what is really going on.
Meanwhile… some water has mysteriously appeared above the tunnel where Tibbles is… how could it have gone through the dirt like that?
Gibson digs up so that he can get some more sunshine into his cave or make a chimney.
Declare, I'll go again xD
Gibson has finished the chimney, and has evened out the top of his cave with the dirt that came from digging upwards. He put his chest in the storage room for safe keeping. But there is a problem. He now has no way of getting up with a fire going. He needs to find a way to get up. He cannot take the ladder outside and go up, because it will not reach. He goes back to the place he first arrived in and thinks of a way to get all the debris down, so that he can use the wood to build a ladder. That way he can get up and look over the other citizens.
P.S. I know this is kind of quick, but it looks like this thread is dying and I want to finish all my plans before it does. Somebody declare because I don't want to play by myself D:.
I can't make one atm, but the thread isn't dying. People were probably just busy today. :P
Justin also goes down the tunnel and places more sticks in the wall to get down . But he then sees that there is no more wall to place the sticks, so he jumps on to the piece of wood in the water.
P.s I dont think the thread is dying its just because every one is in a differnt time zone :) It is 12.30 were i live now.
tibbles creates a water tank to catch the falling water..... while the creature has built something unknown (yes the drawings are shit but i will upgrade them later )
fix them now. I'm just preparing a few move random cave environments for people.
The sentient sees Ekidu and Justin go into the void. The sentient locks the door after studying Justin's actions and takes the gems as the sentient knows they are precious to everyone.
'I still can't see anything' Shouts Justin, 'Neither can I' replies Ekidu. The sentient holds a gem in his hands and the roots of the tree respond by spreading out. The sentient rappels down into the void with the gem in hand. He murmurs something to the gem and it begins to glow.
The roots the sentient rappelled down from grow towards the pure water source urging for nutrients.
'it is time for a new beginning' says the sentient as he gradually lowers himself and the roots into the water with the gem in hand.
[expanded the caves. Should be enough room now for many-a-turn.]
[created a few 'paths' in the caves. You can probably see where the characters are supposed to dig through to reach various cave areas. Remember the rocks are much denser and harder to mine the deeper you go. You will need to reinforce your tunnels and man made cave areas.]
[added more stalactites and stalagmites and a fallen stalactite as a little puzzle]
[meteor should have smashed into earth by now? If so, it should cause major damage to the surface and surrounding areas]
Gibson throws a rope over the bottom log. The rope was obtained from the chest he found upon arriving in the cave.
Ekidu climbs up the pegs and recovers his pick-axe. He contemplates sliding down the roots like the other sentient.
declare boys and girls. thats right, im back from doing other things with my life. now its time to Thing it up.
The thing evolves, rapidly tearing apart the poor soul. it moves into the cave containing the person, smelling it as another thing to assimilate.
the thing has only one thought.
[release]I am the Overmind[/release]
actually, undeclare. next declare, someone move my dood into the little end of the cave where the other guy is now and say "the overmind moves closer to its next target."
Gibson pulls on the rope and the logs and stones come tumbling down.
Gibson stores all the materials in the storage room, and build a ladder out of the wood that has fallen. He begins to clear the walls, and patches up the area from which the debris has fallen, to make sure nothing will fall again.
This is my first time doing this, so don't be upset when it looks like crap.
Some sort of Mutated Freak shows up and starts to dig a hole, because he didn't know what else to do.
Actually, Fuck that, Couldn't be bothered.
Gibson gets to the top and continues to even stuff out.
Declare, my meteorite's gonna actually land now.
The object of meritorious circumstances finally crashes into the green murky pond. A suitable blast crater is carved into the decrepit landscape of this area, lowering the water level of the pond as well. Down below, in the caverns beneath the meteorite, some rocks come loose thanks to the violent shock of the impact. (Someone else can have the rocks crash into the ground, they're free to be manipulated, not my object though).
Gibson has finished evening out his domain, and has built a door, and a stone platform to put above the fire when it is raining or there are intruders. The platform is attached to the top of the chimney, and when you pull on a rope, it closes. He can now see the entire map.
Justin gets to the ground and pushes the piece of wood to the sentient .He looks over at the cave and shouts to the sentient " you gotta come over here man " .
1.Made the rocks fall.
2.Made the mutated Thing move closer to the guy.
First the boom came, then the ground shook violently. (Was that what Justin had been yelling to everyone about?) Jason was digging and suddenly he hit something solid! He looked over his shoulder and the sight that met his eyes was not something he wanted to see. This… thing, was staring at him, moving towards him. He dug quickly and suddenly the ground gave way. He found himself falling… what was going on?? His stick clattered away somewhere unknown. At the present moment he is kicking in this… pipe?? To try and slow his fall. He waits to see what is at the end…
Gibson sees the strange meteor-like object and goes down to get a closer look. While he is there he even out his land to prevent flooding if another rainstorm ever occurs.
Justin walks furthur but then the ground shakes and he falls through it he is stuck and he shouts out to ediku and the sentient " HELP!!!"
Gibson makes another door inside.
The Leading man formerly wearing Green Leaves the Comms Center after they install a proper door. He wanders into a tunnel while looking for things about that could be useful and spots a Mutant. He is horrified by this, and Is more than sure It will probably try to kill him. He Unholsters his Sidearm and Blows its head off.
Gibson decides to go to his storage room and dig across the lake, since he cannot build a bridge over the lake, when suddenly he hit some VERY hard and thick metal wall. It seemed to have a door, with an airtight lock and optical sensor. It almost looked like a safe!
Justin hears the floor cracking , and then he starts to fall, he is about to hit the rock solid ground , but then he quickly holds on to a ledge, he looks down it is a long fall , so he shouts even louder to Ekidu and The Sentient "HELP!!" hopefully they heard him this time ...
Tried my best to draw, I think I failed. :P
Charlie enters from the left, eyeing the smoke coming from the base under him. He got here from following the meteor.
The door opens and Gibson sees another man. The other man seems shocked to see Gibson. "Hello, my name is Martin. I heard a thunk so I opened the door to check what it was. I'm surprised to see another man. Didn't think there would be any more survivors after the nuclear bomb." Immediately Gibson's eye glared at the chest he had. It was the same one he had found when he had discovered his cave. "That chest, where did you get it?" Said Gibson. "What, this one?" Martin said pointing at the one Gibson could not take his eyes off. "I have many of them. I use them to store everything that is important to me. Come with me." said Martin. He moved the chest aside, and there was another door. When he opened the door and climbed down the ladder, there was a whole wherehouse full of the chests! "Why do you ask?" said Martin. "When I first arrived here, there was a man in a cave guarding a chest exactly like that." said Gibson. "Must have been Bryan" said Martin. "I told that man that he could stay with me if he wanted, but he just wouldn't listen! Anyways I gave him that chest to help him out, but seems it had no use." Gibson and Martin went back to the safe and continued conversing. They became friends immediately and decided to live together, as friends and protectors, should any harm come to them.
Onkel Bert arrives.
Just saying, that thing in the lake has not moved.
What is it?
EDIT: I'm going to give this a try. But please don't disrespect, it's my first pixel drawing, seriously.
Two strange people appear in front of Gibson's house, they are quite small.
(first try at this)
Gibson takes Martin to his home. "Looks like you really made use of those tools, I see." said Martin. "Yeah, they were very helpful. I don't think I would be alive without them." Gibson replied.
Gibson looks through the peephole on the door and sees two men. Martin gives Gibson a handgun and a full clip, and Gibson gives Martin a knife, just for extra precaution.
Good for your first try :)
and that thing in the lake is a meteor :)
O and Declare
Justin can feel his hands slipping , he starts to fall he hits the ground and then his vision starts to get blurry , he is now on the cold wet ground not knowing what will happen to him ...
P.S My character is not dead he is only past out he will wake up in about 5 turns :)
The taller one of the brothers goes to the door, while walking towards it he notices the trap above the door, so instead of knocking he shouts through the peep-hole:
"Let us in! We bring no harm, only our alliance!"
Meanwhile the smaller one of the two plants some seeds into the ground and waters them with the watering can they brought with them.
(the water from the can is fresh, not from the lakes here)
(the plants are simply plants, nothing weird about them)
Gibson opens the door and sees that it is just merely two kids. He puts his gun in his back pocket as there is no danger. He gives the older brother a key to his house. The two brothers now have permission to enter and leave Gibson's house, but not change any part of the layout. "I was just about to go looking for fresh water. Seeing as you two are growing crops, looks like you are in need of some. If you need us, Martin and I will be in the storage room. To get to the storage room there will be a hidden door to the left of the fireplace. Have fun and keep an eye on the meteor."
