OOC: I was hoping Ted's player would respond, but I gather he's having
some Internet issues, so we'll plug on.

>>> [Alex]
>>> "We just cleared to the ground floor of the building, encountered one of
>>> these creatures and engaged. They are using humans for something," Alex
>>> answers. "Hoping that we might be able to get some assistance with them."
>>> "We have a teammate who is a prisoner of theirs," she continues.
>>> [/Alex]

>> [GM]
>> "I'll relay it to Sir Osmar," the radio operator says. A few moments
>> later there's the sound of gunfire... a lot of gunfire, coming from
>> the radio.
>> "We're under attack!" the operator says. "I'll restore contact as soon
>> as I can." The link goes dead.
>> It's pretty clear Alex and Vesper are not going to get any assistance.
>> [/GM]

> [Vesper]
> "Sounds like we are on our own for a bit. Alright these Malig have the
> advantage in tech but it does look like underneath the tech they are
> as vulnerable as any human. Which is thankfully a good thing. If we
> are able to remain cautious and quick I am hoping we can get back
> to the others. Just need to get our bearings once we are out of this

> [/Vesper]

> [Alex]
> "Maldita sea," Alex wears. The scout then closes her eyes and a
> memory comes up of hew previous team being ambushed. "Louissa
> is our team mate. We need to try to rescue her."
> "Going to have to hit the ground running because there are possibly
> hundreds of them while there are only two of us," Alex continues.
> "As long as you are touching me, don't forget that you will not be
> effected by energy weapons. Projectile weapons, except rail guns,
> tend to inflict less damage. If we see any armed with rail guns or
> heavy grenade we need to drop them first."
> "Alex to Ted, do you receive us?"
> [/Alex]

There is no response from Ted.

> [Vesper]
> "Alright, I can still try and keep us hidden as we go along. This is
> more a stealth operation with so many enemies."
> Vesper looked to his familiars, "You need to help out with this."
> Vesper waited to see if Alex was able to get through to the ship.
> [/Vesper]

> [Alex]
> "The ship has its own problems at the moment," the red headed
> ranger states. "I am trying to see if Ted answers me and see if
> maybe he can help us with a plan."
> Takes a moment or two before continuing, "Whatever plan we use,
> we are going to have to stealthy. We need to try to keep an escape
> route if possible. Can always try from another direction."
> [/Alex]

The families debate among themselves furiously as Vesper and Alex try
to come up with a plan. During this whole time, Alex has no contact
with Ted, so at least at the moment he will not be able to assist

Finally the man who seems to be the leader steps forward. "We will
help you," the man says, "if you take us with you. We know secret ways
down below the autos in the basement. Maybe Maligs haven't found it, I
haven't seen it since I was a child. All the men, thirty of us, and
some woman who have no children, they come to, maybe ten more. But you
must promise right now you take us away from this place."

The rest of the families shout their agreement. "Take us!" they shout
and plead. Two women near Alex shout out "We help with fighting, but
take our children!"
