15th of May to the 22nd of May, 110 P.A.
Viktor quietly twitched as the clock counted down to zero before finally charging too it in a moment of revelry akin to that of a loving dog at the return of his master after a long day’s work. As the group entered the safe room’s entrance area, they were met with a most unwelcome sight. The door that lay between them and their ever-demanded progression was locked by a green key; a key none had in their possession.
Fortunately, the room offered medical services for the exchange of points which would probably save Rob’s life. Although Gobi wanted to find another safe room from which to take that offer to prevent Rob from simply getting himself sick once again by having to return through the radiation fields; Rob convinced Gobi to spend the points now through fear that he would not make it to another safe room in his condition. Although reluctant, Gobi agreed and helped his friend recover even with the potential for it being only a temporary solution. As Rob stood in the chamber that promised to heal his wounds, the timer ran out, sealing the group within the safe room.
After Rob’s recovery, the group turned their attention to the monitor, desperately trying to find anything that could take their minds off the thought of having to endure another 96 hour wait. Although navigating the computer was a source of frustration for the technologically ignorant group, they did manage to learn some tidbits of information; most notably the fact that the only way to re-select a princess was with the failure of the existing champion. With their technological abilities already far exceeding their usual limit, the group gave up on the subtleties of the monitor and focused their thoughts on one remaining option.
After a passionate debate on the merits of spending a point in order to view what was on the other side of the green room door, Gobi once again fell prey to Rob’s stubbornness and submitted to his will. This time, that decision proved wise as the camera’s revelation cemented their future course of action. Waiting for the master of the Green Room key was an impossibility as he was nowhere in sight. With that idea thoroughly crushed, the group’s only remaining option lay in the way they came and traversing the deadly radiation fields at least once more.
3 Stars. Was an interesting session but the issues with the lava diminished the overall experience slightly. Still far from bad though.
4 stars, if only Gobi Realized that the End Scenario button was too good to be right there unguarded
