EVENTS:

Kelly puts a hand to one of her temples, then brushes her hair away from her face.

Kelly: "Hm. There's. A time, for everything. This is, already, too much disruption, for one day. We have a, routine, you know.

You may return, tomorrow. Once I have dealt with, things.

Rosa. Molly's laboratory, third corridor to the right, leaving through the main door. An engineer will lead you there. Don't cause trouble.

The rest of you, I don't want you running around my rig, when I'm not there to watch you. The brig, is the safest place."

EVENTS:

Kelly nods absentmindedly, turning back to her ledgers and blueprints, but Sally looks rather surprised. As she walks past Eigla, she whispers at the shieldmaiden.

Sally: "Take care. The maneating shark is one thing, but... Just take care."


The party splits. Eigla and Rosa follow an engineer zombie towards Molly's lab, while Sally leads Malia, Klimt and his entourage back along the main corridor.


---

The engineer leads Rosa and Eigla along the maze-like bowels of the Rig, past a rather worrying amount of sentry guns and airlocks. Eventually, they reach a surprisingly understated metal gate, marked only as "Biolab 2 Side B". Their escort stops at the threshold, seemingly hesitant to enter, then intones in a monotone, synthetized voice:

Engineer: "Destination reached. Proceed."

Peering inside, they see a large, dark room, lit only by dimly glowing vats and stasis pods. A chill escapes through the open door, and faint moans can be heard. Looking up, there's... Something, hanging from the ceiling, slowly swinging from side to side. A chandelier, perhaps?


---

Klimt and Malia follow Sally accross the facility. The buccaneer grumbles under her breath most of the way, making sure to keep a wide berth between herself and the threadgirl, but after a while begins to smile devilishly to herself, as if having figured something out. At an intersection, she makes a sharp turn towards another corridor. The engineers seem confused at first, but quickly adjust to the new route.

She leads you down the main elevator once again, though the truck is now nowhere to be seen. The loading bay under the Rig is as busy as ever, and you cross it to reach what seems to be a... Fort, of sorts, made of a large beached warship surrounded by a metal palisade. A few nautical-themed Dolls salute Sally as she walks by, guiding you through a large, dark courtyard. The night has fallen, and only foul-smelling oil lamps light the way.

At last, you reach what seems to be a large cell, with heavy metal gates on both sides. An ancient engine springs to life, pulling rusty metal chains to lift the portcullis closest to you.


Sally: "Alright ye bilge rats, get in."

EVENTS:

Rosa: "Molly?"

Bigrosa's head brushes against the chandelier as she enters, and it seems to recoil from the touch. Looking up, she realises the object is actually a skinless Doll hanging upside-down from the ceiling, crucified on an old hospital bed. Its flayed skin hangs off its back like a cape, and its semi-detached eyeballs slowly track Rosa's movements.

Molly: "Oh! Visitors!"

The tank-riding torso appears from behind a row of shelves, her cargo compartment precariously overfilled with test tubes and lab equipment.

Molly: "Rosa! And, Rosa's friend! Oh goodness, I did not expect you to arrive so soon! Excuse the mess, I was in the middle of- ACTUALLY! You should come see! I'm drawing the most amazing conclusions from my analysis! Oh, this is going to be so delightfully experimental!~"


----------

Meanwhile, Malia follows Klimt into the cell. She smiles at Sally, going for her usual unnerving tactics, but the sea wolf merely grins back. This is a bit unnerving.

The heavy gate closes behind them, and Klimt examines their prison. The room's floor is made of beaten earth, and there's a conspicuous lack of restraints, latrines, cots, or anything you'd normally expect from a brig cell. Behind the portcullis on the other side, lies a rather large courtyard, or arena.

Emilia: "I have a bad feeling about this. Don't get too close to the door, Klimt."

Curie: "Agreed. This looks suspiciously like a pregladiatorial staging room of the roman period. I doubt Sally has good intentions for us."

Take a good look around as I follow Rosa/Molly.
