I'll be right back.

*smiley - run out of the room*



















*smiley - run back in several minutes later with his adventuring pack*

I'm so glad I decided to keep this packed! *Opens a glow stick, brekas it and drops it into the hole*

[Mog brings up his equipment screen, which shows that he is supposedly carrying a pike, shield, and chainmail made out of Mythril, Sprint Shoes, and magicite for summoning Carbunkl.]

[Mog] Hmm ... that isn't going to be much use, I think, since all it does is cast spells that defend against magic smiley - erm ... Oh well, best be going anyway!

Hmm - thought I was going into a tunnel but either there are more than one of them or I'm confused...

*GL comes walking down the tunnel from the general direction of CLI. He is wearing a headlamp and is peering at a device in his hand.*


Okay, they should be right about .... here


*GL looks up and sees everyone*

Oh! Hi! Haven't been down here in ages - I thought this tunnel dead-ended not far from here. How did you guys get in here? You just suddenly showed up on our sensors, with some mechanical device, which should be ....

*Glances at the device in his hand. Frowns. Shakes the device. Frowns again.*

Darn! Batteries ran out. Might make finding our way back a challenge. And now I have no idea where that mechanical device is either. Oh well, it can't be far. We can go find it if you want, then make our way out of here.

The mechanical device is not ... the cleaning bot, is it? I'd not be too keen on going to pick that one up. Or is there a CLI trick to that?

Sorry, guys. I got a little jumbled up earlier. Not sure where I wandered off to. GL! Which way to safety? We've got a mad cleaning bot on our hands!

Not the Cleaning Bot! That thing scares the bejeezus out of me!

I'm definitely for getting out of here - these twisty little passages all alike give me the creeps. By the way, you wouldn't have the makings of a black whole, would you? We've already got some acorns, dried leaves, and pocket lint, and I thought if we put them in a particle accelerator we could create something so infinitely filthy the cleaning bot would be sucked into its pull, never to escape. Or something.

I'd also settle for a mbougatse. These tunnels are filled with the scent of mbougatses. smiley - drool
