coffee.jpg burrowingdrone.jpg
A digging drone whirrs up to you. You quickly move to the side so it doesn't start dismantling the rubble you're standing on, but it turns to face you again.

After attacking a drone and not winning or collapsing a wall onto a drone?
? burrowingdrone.jpg
You see a strange shape silhoutted by the green light that fills this place. Fortunately, it's just a mining drone.

Unfortunately, it seems to think it's supposed to be mining you.
At some point on November 4th
Eclipse.jpg burrowingcentipede.jpg
Rocks near your feet begin to hiss and pop as a whiplike creature cracks through the stone to bite at your feet.
Eclipse.jpg? RabidWolf.jpg x2
As you pass a pile of rubble, two hunched shapes lope out of it, slipping through corners far to small to fit their bulk. However, your petty complaints about physics don't deter them from leaping towards you with a howl like stones grating together.
Several needler rounds piff piff piff into the rubble near your head. You're not sure whether that qualifies as another warning, but they were apparently quite serious about the first one. No containment suit, after You have to go back
A guard in a full containment suit that roughly matches yours waves you down among the rubble. Then, as you briefly consider how to respond, rushes you with a bestial howl! Wearing containment suit, after something happens?
Through the rubble, you can see the blaze orange flash of a containment suit. A moment later, its owner is barreling down on you with a bestial howl. Not wearing a containment suit, after something happens?
Eclipse.jpg RabidWolf.jpg x3
You can hear the clicking of something moving behind you, some creature prowling through the rubble. But each time you look, there's nothing.

Then, in a mass of smoke and light, three crystalline forms pull themselves from the rubble. Their howls echo through the ruin as they rush you.
Nov 2rd (~3 AM)
Eclipse.jpg ZombieStudent.jpg
A student rises from the rubble near you, rubble falling from him as he rises. It's incredible that anyone survived that head wo… oh no. Nov 3rd
Eclipse.jpg rubblezombie.jpg x2
As you move through the rubble a hand snaps out to grab at you, blackened by frost and scored by a dozen bloodless wounds. As you consider what to do another pushes its way out of the rubble, reaching for you from the other direction. Nov 3rd
Eclipse.jpg rubblezombie.jpg x4
As you move through the rubble, hands begin grasping at you from every direction. Their blackened nails tear at you, scrabbling to find purchase. Nov 3rd
Eclipse.jpg ZombieStudent.jpgx2
You hear the rubble behind you shifting and turn around to find two students reaching out towards you. For a moment, you can let yourself believe they're survivors looking desperately for help, but reality sets in quickly. Nov 3rd (~2 AM)
Eclipse.jpg shark%20hologram.jpg
A shape of pure light and energy swims out of a nearby pile of rubble, looking for all the world like a hologram of a shark. This day just keeps getting weirder. Nov 3rd (~3 AM)
Eclipse.jpg rag%20man%20hologram.jpg
Some instinct commands you to turn around. You're unsurprised to discover that your instincts have proven right once again.

Standing behind you is Matsuo's old foe, the Rag Man, now darkness cloaked in blindingly pure green light.
Nov 3rd (~3 AM), with Channeling Matsuo
Eclipse.jpg skull%20hologram.jpg
There's a startling roar as a pile of rubble near you collapses, revealing a shaft of green light shining into the heavens. A shape hangs in the shaft, a skull large enough to swallow you whole, carved from pure energy. Nov 4th
Eclipse.jpg mummy%20hologram.jpg
A voice behind you rasps "mine, it belongs to me. ME!"

You turn around to find a humanoid being of pure light, extending its as though to throttle you for your insolence.
Nov 4th (~4 PM), only with a laser
Eclipse.jpg spider%20hologram.jpg
You hear the skittering of legs behind you and turn to find… not a dark shape or a serpentine creature weaving through the rubble, but a massive spider woven from pure light. Nov 4th (~4 PM)
You hear a cold female voice behind you. "Don't worry, the newscasts will remember you as a hero, one life sacrificed to save a hundred more."

You turn around to find a gun pointed in your face. Thank goodness she decided to give that little speech or you'd have a bullet in your brain already.
Nov 5th
Eclipse.jpg hologram%20tentical.jpg
The rubble below you grinds, stone against stone, as it's vaporized by brilliant green light. At the bottom of the resulting pit, the light congeals into something resembling tentacles. Nov 5th, late in the day. Gain 1 energy of In a Pit.
