A random guard (NPC)
Bell stumbled into camp holding an arm full of lumber and various metal ores. Nobody was exactly sure where he had wandered off to, but they were certainly glad to see him back in one piece.
With the ore Bell had brought, Mike decided to work on the gate. For some reason, Blu seemed to have taken to resting the last few days, and though you weren’t exactly sure why, it was a little concerning. That and with Ossa being deep in a meditative trance, improving his mysterystuff so greatly that at the end of the day his mind had ascended to the level of the voices as he mastered [all of the mysterystuff], the camp felt a little less lively than usual. Still, Mike didn’t think Blu would mind him using his forge while he… just kinda sat there. He made the lock mechanic for the gate, as well as the [keys] and a couple of bars for the gate, but he was definitely going to need some more ore to finish a giant gate to match the Deadly Death Wall.
Viral spends part of his day talking to Ossa about [mysterystuff], but as the day goes on he feels like Ossa’s mind is slipping into the voices and Ossa stops responding to his conversation. Confident that Ossa will be alright, Viral decides to give LooseLips the go-ahead on using their ship for research, and then proceeds to test out the gas masks that he had created.
Visibility – Viral was a bit iffy on this one. While they were easy to see out of, their design sort of limited peripheral vision, making them a little less than ideal for purely aesthetic use.
Ease of Use – Check
Breath Quality – Check
Coolness Factor – Check
Mad Genius Aesthetic – As much of a check as one can have, teetering the dangerous line between serious insanity and general coolness.
Durability – Check
Reliability – The mask seemed reliable, but a meter on the side does indicate that it only seemed to be blocking out about 99% of all of the toxic. This meant that any given day, it would be fine to be on board, but multiple full days, back to back, might cause Viral to develop that nasty cough again, or worse. So, no harm in using it every day, but probably not great to sleep on or travel on day after day after day.
Mostly gathered the wood and rock needed, and had enough time to catch a fish or two. Certainly not the fish that needed to be fished, but fish nevertheless! While fishing, he is approached by another person, but not a member of his team. Leading him back to camp, this person doesn’t seem to speak English, like everyone else on the island, but communicates with a series of hand gestures that the emission from the science ship makes him upset and should be filtered for the sake of the environment.
