The door that opens is a free standing frame on a small plywood dais at the focus of a tremendous amount of cabling and particle emitters. The whole area smells of ozone.

Tesladyne's high energy physics department (Advanced Topology Division) is marked by a school of design that thinks things should be able to be cleaned with a pressure washer - painted cinder block, tiles floors, scorch resistant counters, wire reinforced glass and plenty of drains. Decorations lean towards lolcats, and mock safety signs saying 'Do not look at laser with remaining eye'.

There's a calendar open to December 2010 and a clock that says it's about 10.

"Right it's still morning," says Robo, "Watch your step, it was easier to raise the door three inches than to cut down all the equipment by that much."

"Wrrp!" Is all Tyler manages, stumbling a bit out the door, before looking around the room.

...This place is oddly reminicent of both his gym classes for some reason. One for the decorations, the other for being easily cleaned.

"Is this the course?"

"That'll be perfect..Could I run through it before the drill goes through? Get a better picture of where to have something leap out and drag someone to the ceiling and stuff." Tyler asks, following Robo's lead out of this room.

Seriously, he learned the 'do not touch the science gear' a long time ago.

...Tyler wants to come here to practice his gymnastics. Just so you know.

Or well, Robo can probably guess from the way he's eyeing the course and all of the places to put something that screams and roars, or snarls and grabs.

"Oh this is AWESOME, I know just where I'm gonna set the first glowing shoggoth."

Tyler brought along eight daffy putty eggs. Each egg is capable of making something the size of the Mystery Machine. Really though, he tends to use these to get more bang for his buck.

3 eggs are set, mixed with glowing dye, and programmed to chase ONLY a certain active radio signal in shoggoth shape and 'trap' a maximum of 3 victims. We're getting two shoggoths an egg and one egg is getting placed just behind the starting line. The other two get hidden about the course.

4 eggs get set into random places along the pipe-gym and the walls to produce tentacle grabbers. These are the ones that Tyler's going to end up having to remote control. They've got a good 15 foot reach, and as an afterthought, each egg gets treated with a dose of dye. This is just to make showing who got grabbed, and elminate the need for a doll to show where the mean tentacle touched them later.

The last egg gets set to produce what Tyler's dubbed 'screaming mimi's. 2 screeching howling blobs per egg, that swing around and chase anything with that tracer signal, once again.

Eventually Tyler comes back to the blind to check his traps, and get the altered gameboy ready to do it's work operating the 4 tentacles. One run-through with the motion of the tentacles aand...

"How many trainees do you have?"

With that number in mind, Tyler opens up a pouch on his belt loop and counts out 14 discs, running them under something..Oh hey, once they're run under that freaky game-boy thingie they start putting out a little radio signal.

NICE.

"Here ya go, find a way to hide one on each trainee where they can't remove it." Tyler says, settling into the recliner and looking over the ranks of LCD monitors with a grin. Nice view, and here's the first test of the tentacles grabbing all at once...

...put your witty dialogue here.

"Hi Phil, I'm running the 'monsters' you're gonna be running the effects, right?"

"Yup, the stuff I'm using'll let em breath just fine inside of it." Tyler says, running the tentacles through their paces once more.

After a moment he eyes Phil back.

"No one's going to need a trip to the hospital unless they crack wise about my age."

"Definitely. And you haven't even seen the really nasty stuff yet." Tyler grins and points towards the camera that watches the start of the course. "Wait and watch."

With that, Tyler starts watching the screen with the focus of a hawk studying a field.





"...five dollars and a cola say that blue-vest is going to be the first one to wet their pants."

There should be a word for what happens when two glowing masses of ever-shifting eyeballs and tentacles, each size of a volkswagen bug appear behind you. Because they're going to need new cusswords after this.

"GLRRLBLBLRRRAAAWWRRRBBLRRAWWRRR!"

Yes! Yes! The Climbing wall! Shoggoths don't climb well do they?

...oh. They do. More motivation to climb faster!

And waiting above the climbing wall...the first tentacle lurks, waving back and forth lazily.

Plenty of space also means no one else gets wrapped up when one of the shoggoths catches up to Mr. Tentacle Fetish. Bet being devoured by an amorphus volkwagen of hate was never something that crossed his mind.

Now Clarkson Clipboard warrior has been doing fair battle so far...the tentacle withdraws back...and then lashes out grabbing him by the hands holding onto the clipboard. Then Clarkson disappears out of sight with the rest of the tentacle screaming.

Better move it people!

"...think I should start up the screaming mimis?" Tyler asks quietly as the blobs try to bridge the swinging tires...and fall below. Where their glowing shapes can be seen lurking below the mist watching those in the tires.

Wait. Save for that one that ate TentacleFetish. That ones staying on the bridge.

So why are there...three...blobs...oh shit.
