OOC: Vesper has two familiars, so I'll have both of them set to work.
You know, for fun and giggles!

As Vesper finds a darker corner to hide in, his familiars scurry off.
Once the first Malig is out, two others follow behind. Somewhere down
below the manhole there's a couple of loud explosions, and the Maligs
laugh, sounding not unlike blubbery fish.

They laugh, that is, until one of them explodes, knocking his
companions to the ground and sending a hail of flesh, blood and bone
everywhere. That's followed by a second Malig exploding, with similar
results. The third Malig is blown against a low concrete wall and does
not move. Vesper's little companions have done their job and quickly
scurry back to him.

Up above, Vesper can see the first glimpses of the rift that is to
come, a tiny circle of darkness surrounded by a shimmering blue corona
of ley line energy.

That's when the ship finally contacts him. The signal is poor due to
nexus interference, but Vesper hears one of the crew saying "Vesper,
Ted, Alex, Louissa, does anybody read? What is your situation. We're
monitoring the nexus opening into a rift. Can you confirm?"
