Three agents of Firewall, Kira, Q and Melchon, were contact to investigate some data that had been stolen from a secure Firewall server. The source of which seems to be the Intelligent Design Crew. They decided to track down the individual who had stolen all of the data. The agents were traveling by train when they realized that they were being tracked. The agents immediately traced the signal and realized it was coming from the train itself. They eventually found the man hiding in a box on train. They interrogated him intensely and learned that he delivered the data to a remote abandoned terraforming facility.
The team arrived there and began investigating but a nanoswarm suddenly came upon them and they were forced to retreat into the dome structure at the site. They were immediately accosted by a naked man that held them at gunpoint with a railgun assault rifle. He lead them over to a collection of vats that had strange monsters and exhumans in them. The agents reported hearing a strange collection of voices that they described as being a group of “people” speaking in unity. Then after the so called “unity” said that the agents would join them. Then the vats opened and various creatures came forward as well as the activation of two head hunter drones. The team immediately engaged the all hostiles eliminating the head hunter drones quickly. The creatures however proved more difficult to kill. One was a strange exhuman that had incredible async abilities that warranted the classification of a new ability class that Firewall will now classify as epsilon psi abilities. It managed to diffuse a plasma shot that was shot directly at it. However this appeared to be some strange mind game as the agents soon discovered that the weird monsters were not hostile and were in fact ego copies of themselves. This raised a lot of questions as to what the intention of sleeving copies of their egos in bodies could be.
After regaining their wits, the team and their copies decided to explore the connected areas of the dome as they had not recovered that data that they were sent their to retrieve. The ego copy of Q attempted to hack the system console that controlled the vats their while the copy of Melchon followed the bundle of control wires down a shaft into the ground. The copy of Q suddenly suffered an extreme seizure while interfacing with the system. While this was occurring nats were sent to investigate the two connected structures to the main dome. The nats discovered additional vats with creatures in one of them as well as what appeared to be a secret elevator shaft the other. Upon enter the one with vats however the creatures were awoken and one was clearly an exhuman vampire. It proceeded to consume a strange 4 legged 4 armed creature before destroying the drone in the room. The agents immediately took action to prepare to fight the vampire knowing that it could be quite deadly. They were surprised however when the vampire talked to them proclaiming that he knew them and was the ego of John Smith. After some tense negotiations the team eventually accepted John Smith’s story and decided to work together. During this time however the nanoswarm that was outside had penetrated the vat structures wall and was beginning work its way into the dome. The team also picked up Varika since she too was sleeved in a strange morphs as well as another form of John Smith as a dog.
The team thus decided to see where the elevator shaft would lead them. They descended this shaft for approximately a mile before coming to a long hallway that was covered in dried blood. The agents took great caution to advance down the hallway before noting the sign that stated “Ozma Facility.” Kira immediately searched here memory for Ozma and noted their scary reputation. The group entered the facility and found what appeared to be some sort of underground research facility. Though they were unsure of what had happened there since there was a lot of blood and the computers stated protocol guillotine was in effect. After doing some digging around in the office the team got a basic idea of what was going on in the facility. Which included research into everything from dark matter to teleportation. They also found that the AI research and main computer storage area was on the bottom floor of the facility.
The team thus decided to take the stairs the 4 floors down to the mainframe to see if they could retrieve the data. On the second floor down they encountered huge tanks of raw elemental material as well as huge assemler machines to fabricate whatever the facility need presumably. Q decided to manufacture some of the high density processing material that was in the computer’s database before proceeding on.
On the third floor down the team immediately encountered problems. The copy of Kira’s ego began screaming and levitating particles in her immediate vicinity. The team soon discovered the source seemed to be from some kind of teleportation system that was vibrating. The agents also found strange creatures there that seemed to be moving in and out of the solid matter of the containers. John shut down the system trapping some of the creatures in the walls as well as seeming to agitate them because they soon began to try to circle around him. The copy of Kiras ego continued scream even after the system was shutdown. The blob people eventually circled around her before one of them was shot and caused a large explosion. During this time Q explored other areas of the facility and discovered a physical ton of antimatter being stored there. It disconnected the controls as best as it could to break control of it from the facility. However when the explosion of the creatures occurred the controlling AI became active as was clearly shown by a massive power spike on the deepest floor of the building.
This caused the team to go down and investigate the computer center and discovered a great deal of high density processing material as well as strange zombie like creatures hiding among the hardware. The team interrogated the AI as to its knowledge and purpose. It was surprisingly unintelligent for the large amount of processing power at its disposal. The AI called itself Deep Light. It stated that it was currently the controller of the nanoswarms and other hostile things in the base and that it was currently fighting another intelligence in the system. Q at this time raced back to the second subfloor and attempted to retrieve its processing material but discovered that a nanoswarm was present and destroyed his material. It quickly rejoined the group to tell them of the new threat but the ego copy of Melchon had gone crazy and was now in the basement eating the zombies as well as Varika. The team quickly dispatch the blob monster and used scour rings to demolecularize the bits as well as the pieces of the blob people. Soon however Deep Light lost control of its system and a new entity call Unity informed the team that it was in control now. It was very strange and informed the agents that it was created by the alien intelligence that created Q and that it wanted them to join it. The agents decided to take the entire facility offline by destroying the main power cables. This allowed everything to be powered off except for the computer systems as they were ran by a backup RTG. The team also disconnected that and then left the facility and let Firewall conduct our own investigation of the facility.
