Event Description

In NeoLondon [NeoVictoria SIM].  We meet Professor Timmons, working on his robot in the laboratory at the top of the castle where  he has reverse engineered the Strand technology he’s found.  He’s in conversation with Lord Coat; his sponsor.  They discuss their plans to destroy the Sidhe Empire by unleashing an army of murderous robots throughout the worlds of the Sidhe empire.

The Professor wakes the robot with a mysterious liquid and then shows Lord Coat how this construct, using Strand motes, is able to unmake a small lamp containing a human soul.  Meanwhile, in the tavern, conversation turns to the seldom seen Lord Coat and Sam Bellamy determines to do some reconnaissance; he overhears enough of their plot to send him in search of Magnus.

The roleplay continues in NeoLondon today … join us at 2:00 PM, SecondLife-time or tune in tomorrow!

Timmons and the Robot
Professor Heironymous Timmons connects the oiling tube to the still, silent robot lying on the table before him. Red oil flows through the tube and into the robot’s systems, coating every gear.
Lord Coat Watches
Lord Coat was slow to approach the table with the bot, and looked down into its face. “Good to ssssssee thissss sssspace being put to usssse, Professssor.”
Professor Timmons and Lord Coat wait for a reaction.

Working on the Robot
Deep within the construct, millions of tiny machines began to stir in earnest. They whisper a secret language of ones and zeros, sharing bits of information as they take ownership of this new vessel.
Sam approaches the castle
Samuel Bellamy stood up he was determined to get a sight of the goings-on. Now to see if Sam can avoid any guards set up in the castle.
Sam at the Castle
Samuel Bellamy: Super Fennec ears go! He wasn’t near the door. Sam didn’t need to be to overhear the conversation.
Watching the Robot
Professor Heironymous Timmons grins in satisfaction as the robot walks forward. He sets the lamp down and steps back from it. “Now you know what to do, don’t you?” the professor says as if speaking to a child. “Show us your power!”
The Seal is Breached
The runes which hold the souls in place have never been broken, nor can they be; the rune is the word and that word cannot be unsaid once it is spoken. But, they have a weakness built into their making …they do not last forever, they cannot; that is the promise of the Soul Caster’s Guild, each soul gives a bit of its eternal life for a certain period of time and then it set free. The motes pull the energy from the lamp faster … faster still … they resonate that the same frequency as the soul within and they consume its power, speeding up the time that the rune records. Seconds become days, then years. The construct’s metal skin begins to glow as its takes in 80 years of power in a few moments.
Lord Coat Reacts
Lord Coat couldn’t help but step back and take a long look at the Professor. These eccentrics, he thought, so unnerving. “Well, I’m ssssure we could come up with ssssomething jussst asss effective. Mayhapssss not precissssely sssso evident.” He dismissed politely. “Believe me, they will know their reckoning.But pleassse, do tell me again of you’re feud with thissss backwater world.”
Professor Heironymous Timmons
Professor Heironymous Timmons quivers with a mix of nervousness and outrage. “You mean you’ve forgotten already!? How could you forget the headlines! ‘Local scientist discovers breakthrough advance soul cage utilization!’ Oh yes, you wouldn’t remember, because they never got published!
Lord Coat on the Balcony
Lord Coat laughs uproaringly, taking flight to glide around the room, his voice suddenly booming and foreboding – echoing several voices at once. “Timmonsssss.. I have only sssseen one bot disssmantle one lamp.
