Vesper finds the following:
- 12 Undamaged Staffs of Pacification (Atlantis p. 121)
- 2 Eylor Helms of Omnipotence (Atlantis p. 125)
- 3 relatively undamaged suits of Overlord Power Armor (Atlantis p. 123)
- 15 K-E4 Plasma Ejectors (Atlantis p. 137)
- 5 Forearm Plasma Blasters (Atlantis p. 153)
- 50 Full Long E-Clips
- 1 Lesser Rune Sword (Atlantis p. 127, Damage: 5D6MD, -6 to parry
energy blasts, +1 to savings throws)

It takes some time to gather the equipment, but it's an impressive
array to be sure. All the bodies dug out belong to Kydians or Kittani,
with a couple of the very creepy Metztla. No sign of the missing
scouts however.

One of the men nods at Vesper's suggestion and pulls out his radio and
tries to gain contact with the missing scouts.

A few moments later a faint reply comes. "We're all safe." a crackly
voice says. "We're in some sort of .underground control room, probably
pre-Apocalypse. Trying to find our way out."

The missing scouts can't be far away, but all Vesper and his
companions can see is a sea of freezing mud.

"I am no real expert on radios is there some way you can locate them with the radios ? If Alex were here she would know."
Not having any of the scouts belongings he knew he couldnt use magic to locate them the way he might normally.
"Let the scouts know we will try and find them. Right now all we see is freezing mud everywhere."
