Session Ident: #Aeons_Daylight

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} looks to Kara with a hint of a question in his expression. “And who was that?”

<+Dusk> {Maverick} arrives at the theatre, looking for anyone who might be present

<+MichaelM> “My former superior, for one” Kara says, a betrayed tone to her voice, “A few co-workers, and…” Kara trails off for a moment, looking a torn, “…and the father of a friend of mine.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ was looking around trying to sense for the doorway but presently there was just nothing left to sense, except for Zo himself.

<+Morose> <Aaron> raises an eyebrow at Kara.  “Seriously?  Those two?”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} nods his head softly, listening and then sighing and starting to shift the rubble.

<+MichaelM> Kara turns to Aaron and nods. “As far as I can tell.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “What two are we talking about?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) moves around the ruins, glancing to them now and then but looking around through what is left of the building.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ also would go around trying to find and sift through things.

<+Morose> <Aaron> shakes his head softly.  “I could go across and try to come at it from that side.  It’s down below?”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} glances around and then starts to pick up and move large chuinks of stone. The kinds of things a human should not be able to move. “Sorry about the display, but i don’t have time to do this slowly.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “No problem, hombre. I just hope we can find it. Have we thought about just going into the umbra and trying to find the lost traces there?”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} “I am fairly sure that the portal does not lead to the Near Umbra. But… If I can get to it I may be able to see where it leads.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) looks over at Ramirez. “I can’t sink through the floor. Must have some sort of protection on it.”

<+MichaelM> Kara somewhat helplessly watches Zo start to move rubble. “That, er…that sounds good.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Zo, there seems to be some kind of protection over here.” * he moves over where Hollow was and moves debris there to see if he can find anything.

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} nods and starts to turn that way. “Don’t feel bad, Kara. You had no idea, and I could do this by myself but you all did want to seem to help.”

<+MichaelM> “But it was my fault for missing it!” Kara responds, a note of hysterics in her voice. “I was too caught up in my stupid theories and experiments to notice this! I should have seen *something* wrong, at the very least, but no. I was too busy with my own pointless work!”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} pauses and looks at Kara. “That is not true. Your work is not pointless, especially not to you. As for them, they are good at lying. Things have a way of falling into place… such as you being elsewhere when all of this occured.”, indicating the rubble laying about.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ continues digging around where he was to find a way down and around it.

<+MichaelM> “Is that supposed to make me feel better?”  Kara asks softly as she rubs her temples. “That just makes me sound like a self-centered idiot they can sting along at will.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) stays near Ramirez, watching him work. “I’d totally help but touching is uh… not easiest thing in the daytime.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “It’s okay.. I’m just wondering if this area is protected and we can get in, maybe that is the point we want to be at.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “If we can get in there, that is.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> nods and helps Ram move rocks, at least what he can lift.  “They did not want to be followed.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Yeah, that’s apparent. This area though seems different from the rest. If we can find an entrance, it may yield something.”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} comes over and begind to assist in that area, pausing after a few moments as they uncover what looks like the top of a freight elevator.

<+Morose> <Aaron> takes a look around it, frowning a bit and then looking at the keycard pad.  “Great.  So…  I am having some video game flashbacks.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Weird.. a freight elevator that a spirit couldn’t get through. Maybe we’re going to Raccoon City.” *he’d try to work on opening the doors.

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) chuckles. “Hell yeah… effing zombies.”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} glances over at them and raises an eyebrow. “I should hope not. I do think it was likely to keep anything from their portal from getting up here. Do you know what an Umbrood is?”

<+Morose> <Aaron> “That sounds… contagious.”

<+MichaelM> “Not by that name, no.” Kara responds, curiosity breaking her from her mental self-deprecation. “Why?”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Nah, hombre. I just like died last week.”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} “They live in deep places in the Umbra… they are … dangerous. Alien, and have no qualms tearing you apart. The barriers may be to prevent their escape. So if we remove them, we may run the risk there is something dangerous down there.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Oh, well that would not be a good thing. For now anyway.” * he’d stop messing with the doors, though kind of disappointed not to find out what was in there.

<+MichaelM> “That can’t stop us.” Kara states insistently, “there needs to be a way to stop them.”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} sighs and takes a seat on a pile of rubble. “How many of you are there in the city?”

<+Morose> <Aaron> looks dubious.  “Enough to cause trouble.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> chuckles, sputtering black stuff again. “I like him.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ smirks. “Yeah, we’re great at that. Even if people don’t know it was us.” * thoughts go back to the mall*

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} frowns slightly, eyeing Aaron and then looking back at the elevator. “Can I trust you all to leave the barrier alone until I can go get some assistance. Perhaps someone that can put it back up behind us so we can go in and not leave it exposed?”

<+Morose> <Aaron> raises his hands.  “I’m not gonna touch it.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “Me either. I mean, I could if I wanted don’t think it’s cause I am making a ghost joke.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “I thought you were making a ghost joke..” He look at Zo “But yeah, we’ll leave it be.”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} nods his head. “Good. If you want to go in with me, I’ll take the help. I’ll be back here in… two days.”

<+MichaelM> “I can’t speak for anyone else,” Kara glances at Ramirez and Aaron, then back to Zo, “but I’ll be there.”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} nods. “Thank you.”, he then looks back over to Ramirez. “Do you want me to remove that mark now?

<+Morose> <Aaron> smiles a bit, and nods to Kara.  “I’m in.  See you soon then.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “Nah, I’m good as I am.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ “See you in two days.”
