The bunker has a pair of generators and a pile of gear in one of the corners. The whole arrangement is fenced off with yellow caution tape and blast shields. One of the downsides of making your own way to Milliways is that you have to keep making your own way. The rest of the space is full of other support gear: paramedics, radio operators, stocks of food and water and plenty of video feeds. Most of those cameras seem attached to be on balloons or something else flying given the way they look down at the woods, but a few others target larger clearings and trails.

"Sorry about the lack of space," says Robo, "This was the best place in the area to get through. You mind waiting while I give the trainees one last talk before I bring you out?"

"Go for it. We're playing Zombie Princess right?"

...Yes he's eager to get this game underway.

...For the record, he is NOT snickering quietly.

Though corn-row girl is giving Captain 'Zombieman' Clarkson of the S.S. Clipboard a bit of a dope slap. "Don't taunt Murphy!"

Tyler jogs out of the tent now smiling at the assembled group, only 14 of which are giving him looks of dread.

"Heya."

"Those of you who know me from the obstacle course, I didn't bring any of my little friends along for this." Tyler announces, grinning like an idiot.


"...what little friends?" And it's Mr. What-is-the-big-deal stiking again.

"First time to find me in the fifteen minutes is an automatic win. After that, team that captures me and brings me back to base wins."

basic_powers: (Cool Like that)

"Sure thing." Sort of like the obstacle course again, except the grouping off is deliberately putting Clarkson with the guy who said 'what is the big deal'.

"I'll run into the grounds and light the bottle rockets when I'm ready to start." Tyler calls back, jogging into the forest.

Fairly thick undergrowth means moving carefully to not leave a trail, which kind of goes to pot when the kid hits the soggy wet lowlands because that just means leaving tracks...

Okay if he's going to be leaving tracks, he might as well make them confusing as ALL HELL right now. And it's a good while before he finds just what he'd like for a place to wait to be found. A big old tree.

Now, he's got some climbing gear, his usual utility belt and a pump paintball gun with plenty of ammo, and just in case, his gauntlet. Gear stashed, it's a quick bit of fiddling to get the flare-gun set up, tiny keypad and all but soon rockets burst out from under the trees into the sky.

GO!!

And THEY would be the smart ones, and if Tyler were able to watch, he'd be betting money on that team having the three who won the obstacle course challenge being in that group. Meanwhile, he's bunkering up in the tree branches to watch the wildlife and see where the birds are leaving from.

Yeah, if Clarkson's group can make sense of those mixed up and criss-crossed paths, they will deserve beer and pizza. So there's THREE groups he can track right now by the movement of the birds and their noises...

But they're all taking too long as Tyler pulls his gear back on, counting down the seconds until their timers go off.

"......oooh gawd." Clarkson cries out dismayed, turning to stare openly at this particular teammate as everyone catches the giggling from far off. "I'm surrounded by crazy people!"

"What is the BIG deal about this kid, seriously he's like half our size and-" -phoont! -splut!!--

Stupid Newb doesn't get to finish that sentance. Well. He could finish it, but he just got a faceful of paint-soaked sponge to the face.

That...okay, he's not going to ADMIT it, but that's pretty decent, given that he's got to hide behind a tree and prime that pump-action paintball gun.


There's going to be a burst from behind the tree, a grey-blue, short and fast moving little blur, who actually manages to get three shots out before he gets behind a particularly thick bit of bushes.

Paff! Paff! Paff! Jaws theme, Captain Clipboard, and Koi Tattoogirl! Yeerrrrrr OUT!

Oh yes, he'll be moving along...in juuust a bit. As the other five move for a better angle...They'll find Tyler isn't in that clump of bushes now.

He WAS there. And he might be nearby.

Piff! Piff! Yeh, definitely nearby, it's hard to tell where those two shots came from.

"...I'm out!" "Same here, what is this kid, a Chuck Norris clone?"

...Let's see now. Which team had Mr. Jake Tentacle-Porn on it again?

Though it looks like Hammond and the two remaining full newbs just started in on the group that got a little too close.

"Jeeeeezus! Hammond, you nutwad!"

Well. That makes up HIS mind, he's going to go after Jake and his crew of eight, sneaking underneath the bushes.

...With the mini air cannon he packed in his backpack. What happens when you fill the entire cannon with a hopper of paintballs and point it at a closely packed group of nine?

YAUGH, time to move!

Tyler's just going to be beating a hasty retreat into the bushes now. Looks like Jake's plan of 'newbs as an abalative meatsheild' worked for him.

piff!

Except for that headshot just now.

"I'm sorry, but your brain is in another castle!"
