Molly: "The Pillar Man is a very, methodical creature. It's active on specific days, almost only during the sunny season, and follows a few well-known patrol routes. It's a large part of the reason why we can even maintain a trade route with the factory - We only send the convoys when the giant is inactive.

Why, the last time I remember it moving about in winter... I think it was two decades ago, when Sally tried to take a barge South, to loot the old gun emplacements on the seawall. That was a fun time, piecing her back together!~"

"We spent a lot of time by the sea wall before we made it here - I wonder if the pillarman is also serving as some sort of coastal defense?"

Molly: "Quite possible! Hard to be sure, however; The thing's sheer lethality makes any sort of close observation all but impossible."

"Hm.

Kelly made a point that we, my team, wouldn't be able to do much against the meatblob, which is probably close to true in comparison to the armaments and number of zombies the rig possesses.

What if, before the meatblob reaches the rig, my team can go down to the sea wall and attempt to lure it and the pillarman together?"

"The meatblob is only after you, right Rosa? If only two of us went while you stayed here, it could be enough for us to attract the pillarman and be nimble enough to escape.

We won't need to fight, so one to aid in our mental defense, Malia, and someone to protect her.

The most durable of us."

"............
I don't like it.
It might work.
I don't want you to go.
I'm afraid if the meatblob wins.
I don't know if we'll win here.
I don't want to run forever.
I don't want to die.
I don't want you to die.
The pillar man might not show up.
It might just chase the initial aggressor.
The meatblob might ignore it.

It might work."

> Smile. Hold Rosa's hand.

"We have to stop it here. We need to use every resource we have to make sure the meatblob goes down, and stays down. If the rig is lost, we lose, no more places to run to.

We're at the last leg of the race. Gotta finish strong, right?"

"... Are you crazy? Why should we go out there? There's no way we'd survive.

Even if we somehow managed it, the meatblob would die right under the pillarman's nose. We'd never get its flesh."

EVENTS:

Molly: "Necromancer? Ah, you mean the one who calls himself the Master. His domain extends far to the Northwest, but apparently his main fortress is somewhere along the northern coast. We send supplies and fuel there every other month by train, in exchange for Flesh and trinkets from the old world."
