Glacial Wastes Mission 6: The Suprising Discovery of the Army Caverns


Eli McGraw had learned a bit of news from the Hovertruck Molly, the location of one Bysos Borak. Eli didn’t know much about Bysos Borak, except the guy was a K’iou, who usually dressed in military fatigues, according to the members of The Frost whom they had interrogated and detained at Jemison Post. He had a picture, one they found and copied from a “family pic” of the Merc Team.

Doing a basic scouting of the Caverns along with a team sent by Administrator McIvinson, Eli has discovered an army being brewed under the snow.

There is a three level cavern complex. The closest two layers were ice caverns. They seemed pretty trap filled. And McIvinson’s Thermal Scanners picked up multiple hostile lifeforms chained on that second floor, possibly as organic traps. What types of creatures they are was currently unknown, but McIvinson suspected they were Cerberus Kulieks, Chimera Kulieks and Hydra Kulieks.

The lowest was stone, apparently powerfully warded from the words of one of the adepts on McIvinson’s scouting team.

One of McIvinson’s new Technomagi Agents sent a few eye spies down there, and they are reporting back that there are corridors full of Cloning Tubes filled with Olgog Clones. One set he suggested was clones of Agent Lurtor. The others are suspected to be Olgog the Olgog, a known terrorist.

With at least ten thousand clones within marching distance of all their holdings, it seemed the Glacial Wastes had hidden a deadly threat. Since they had discovered it before the clones were deployed, and had eye spy visuals on the lowest level, the heroes had all the advantages in their favor.

But…what would they do with their advantage?

A post should be under two paragraphs in length.



This mission ends on Friday October 28th at 12 Midnight EST.


Time for some planning back at THE COLD DRAFT!


Eli has connections to Striker. Lurtor asked Eli to reach out to him outside of official channels. Hopefully unmonitored. If Striker says no go, plan is canceled. Striker can make modifications to the plan as well. Or see if he sends help.

Lurtor will find any of those that has been helping with the post and alert them to this and tell of the high levels of the plan. But he will stay off the comcrystals to do this. There plan allowed for others some time to join.

Lurtor was very concerned about this army, for many reasons. He didn’t like being the subject of all of this cloning, but to be a clone himself. Even though that was so long ago when he was a pup. Lurtor didn’t want to have to kill the clones for being clones. And he didn’t want to see them being used as slaves either. Hopefully

Lurtor says to the group “While clones, they are alive. We don’t know if they are shells or just sleeping. For now I do prefer not to wake them. My goal is mainly recon. Quiet in and Quiet Out. We have surprise, but once word gets around about this, we loose that. So lets see what we can do.

But if we get a chance, let us see if we can stop the production, or at least the control that Old V has of them. Eli, your plan may work. While I’ll sneak in, I’ll pose as one of my clones, especially if found. And then get you guys in. I will need help with traps and if things go bad. Also, they may or may not have the dragon sickness after their attack on me. I don’t know.
I’m going to talk to Albert about cloning. Stay if you wish. I want to know what is or is not possible and it may know.”

Lurtor says to Albert “Tell me what you can about cloning and the tech around it. If someone is programming clones, how would they be doing it? Are the clones shells until memory dump is done? Do clones require something to survive in addition to the original copy? Is it possible to change, and how? What type of clones are there? What are the limits? ” Lurtor’s goal was to gain info so he would know what he was looking for.

Assistance needed/requested:
Lurtor would hope that the others, Biff included if willing, to help him take the control room quietly. If possibly, Biff might be able to help locate the control room or data center. With the help of Eli, Nuria, and Grim, they should be able to handle the traps they come across.

(OOC Lurtor would send his own eye spy (obscured and wilderness camo) if he can’t use leyas through the eye spy already in there, though would use the one already there if possible.)

The would monitor the area for a bit, allowing time for requested backup to arrive. Seeing who comes and goes, and any patterns.

Looking through the eye spy camera, Lurtor would use Leyas site and determine what wards are in place where. And check to see if there is a spot designated from coming and going Lurtors. This would be where they would expect him to enter if he was a clone of theirs. Lurtor would have the others check for traps as well through the display. Something he might miss.

The idea was to find what they needed with the eye spy if possible and go straight there. The goal was the control room/computer.

General Plan:
If the Eye spy is enough to access the systems, then Lurtor would not need to go in person. And ignore the below paragraph.

If he does have to go in. Lurtor would pose as one of the clones. He would dress like them and equip like them. His collar the only difference and hopefully he could conceal that some in an outfit. While he wouldn’t be out in the open, he would walk like he was suppose to be there. He would have a folded sheet that can act as a portal back to the others location. Once there, find and locate the control room. Lurtor would shadow portal the others in with the sheet he brings in with him. With Biff and Eli who can both touch technology, and his open lock, they should be able to open any doors. Everything done without being noticed.

Otherwise use wireless hacking to check the cloning systems:

[li]Identify any intelligence that will allow us to know what the purpose of this army is, their target, and their controller. [/li][li]Identify if there is a flaw added that makes the clones die off after XXX time period. [/li][li]identify any if there is a condition to wake the Clones. If so, change the condition. [/li][li]If changes are possible and attack time is near, not allowing to leave and come back:[/li][LIST]
[li]What is their target if they wake? If they have to have a target, the Sea kings invasion is a better choice than us. [/li][li]Is there a programmed enhanced hatred between the OtO and Lurtors. If so remove it. (This is important to Lurtor) [/li][li]If there is programming removing their ability to value life, remove that programming. They should value themselves and others. [/li][li]Remove the Desire/requirement to obey, Old VLAD or any warmonger forces found. [/li][/ul]

End goal is that they should be free if they wake. It is not about adding programming, but removing it. Any conditions added to the clones, should pass the Biff test. The desire is to free those abused, not be their new masters.

Secondary mission, Equipment found:
All of the Clones of himself, have his same artificing. And OtO, seems to have a ton of equipment. There must be a way they are doing this. Lurtor hoped to learn where this production was done, or at least this sites storage. Tag these for removal if the clones become an issue.

On leaving:
Prevention of the awaking of the clones is the highest priority. Otherwise remove traces of them being their. Leave an obscured and concealed eyespy. Convert another light fixture. Transport out. This was recon (mostly).

Report Findings (Off computer):
Any report of what is found, will only be delivered by word of mouth. If they get in and out without notice, they will want to keep old VLAD from finding out. When asked why not reported earlier, the need to gain intel before the enemy could be warned. Secrets told others tend to get to the person you don’t want to know.

Before they enter the Deathgeon… “This is a bad idea.” Eli McGraw sends a code message to Buffy for Strykker. His right hand gets cramped. Buffy gets pissed off because it’s a long message and “sells” some of Eli’s junk (like that huge stereo system a couple of months ago – bye bye records) for shits and giggles. Message: "Things are escalating up here. Sea Kings, Dragons vs Quall and Clone Army of OTO/Lurtor are just the tip spear. Requesting “independent help” though non-official channels. i.e. Heavy armed fortune hunter and settlers. - Love Eli P.S. Details on what has happen the next 30 pages.”

Eli follows Lurtor’s lead and watches his back. He thinks Lurtor is a bit wound up tight and will try to loosen him up so he makes less mistakes. Honestly, facing clones of you and your worst enemy(?) is stressful. If Lurtor goes nuts, Eli will get him out of there along with the rest. What? Eli is a jerk but doesn’t mean he’s not empathetic. Standard gear will be brought along plus the Water-Proof Satchel.
