Event Description

7 May (Wednesday) Scene 7:  In Asperatus.  Hungry,  the Timmon’s Robot leaves the Professor’s secret location on Asperatus in search of soul cages to raid.  It tries to hide from the NeoVictorians, but is discovered.  Two of the NeoVictorians confronts it, it attacks and they are killed.  The commotion brings a larger group together; the robot is attacked and badly damaged, but is able to escape.

The NeoVictorians return to Mrs. Chickenstalkers, with the bodies of their comrades, and determine to search out Professor Timmons the next day.

We continue the roleplay today (Thursday) in Asperatus.  Join us at 6 PM, SL-Time and help us find the nefarious Professor Timmons!
Timmons’s Robot emerges from its sleep state unexpectedly in Timmons’s lair in Asperatus. The professor, however, was nowhere to be found. “Professor?” it calls out in its mechanical voice. After searching the confines of the hideout, the robot pulls the lever sliding the hidden door open.
“I’m famished! I need more soul cages.” it says out loud as it walks out onto the pathways of Asperatus.
Another Night of Searching
“I just got word via the Watcher in our Apothecary back in NeoLondon that the lights are still out! And so far, no one has come to the shop with any news about the robot’s location. I’m afraid we will have to do another night of searching!”
“Asil, some one asked me yesterday if we had put out any bait for the robot. Pardon my ignorance, but what is bait for a robot?” Asil Karu considers, “We have the lamps, standard issue … and they are powered by souls.”
Red Confronts
Red was not sure how useful a projectile would be against a metal monster. But she had cast the die. “I said Halt, Robot!”
How Dare You?
Timmons’ Robot looks at the shouting woman’s pistol and processes her commands. “How rude of you, accosting strangers while waving a firearm about! I shall have to teach you a lesson! Prepare yourself!”
Red falls
Before she can regain her footing, the robot is upon her. Her body crumples to the floor, and then both her head and torso tumble from the side of the platform.
Ginger Takes a Wack
Anya “Ginger” Greer: “For goddess’ sake, it’s made of metal! Bullets ricochet—” She screamed as she watched the unfamiliar woman go down, too paralyzed to make a go for her as she tumbles off the platform and disappears in the clouds. “Oh that it!” She leaps towards the robot, aiming for it’s neck joint with her lycan claws, snarling.
Emergency cooling procedure activated
When internal heat levels begin rising rapidly, a line of holes on its sides open and vent steam with a deafening hiss. “Emergency cooling procedure activated” escapes from the robot’s vocalization mechanism, though likely drowned out by the steam’s deafening racket.
Ginger Transforms
Anya “Ginger” Greer snarls as bones rearrange and fur emerges from flesh; she leaps upwards with a howl, and balls her large hands together to bare down on the top of the bots head with tremendous force, likely causing the walkway to tremble in her wake.
Kieko Falls
Kieko is caught unawares with the kick from the robot….using both hands to hold on to the torch…she steps back….realizing that it’s open air….she lets go of the the torch….”OH THUNDERBOLTS!!!!” trying frantically to grab onto something with her hands…..
Good Girl
Anya “Ginger” Greer snorts and glares down at the bot, tail swaying back and fourth. In the back of her mind, she thinks, ‘I’m a good girl.’
Robot Falls
Valentine ‘Val’ Adler looks down at the fallen mech, “Whatever we decide to do …we need to try to extract as much information from it as we can …without risking injury …at all costs.”
Robot Escapes
Dame Rowena Desade lunges at the robot at it starts to move, a curse bursting from her lips as the tip of her sword misses the robot’s chassis. As the jets unfold, she takes a step back in an attempt to keep rocket exhaust from catching her uniform on fire. She followed the path of the robot as her brow furrowed in anger.
Kit Reacts
Kit let out a squeal as the robot bounced back up, eyes wide until the creature seemed to disappear over the roofs. “Really? Coward!”
“The cursed thing escaped, but not after shedding blood. Two people died tonight, because I failed.”
Get Timmons
She looks at the tired faces, “Perhaps we are searching for the wrong entity; its Professor Timmons that holds the key. Let’s concentrate our effort on him tomorrow.”
