[IC - Chapter One] Saxemberg

March, 1945: the forces of the Axis are falling back on all fronts. After half a decade of bloodshed and destruction, the end of the war is finally approaching. Yet, unknown to the Allies, the enemy has one more ace up their sleeve. A routine investigation of an abandoned submarine base leads to the discovery of a massive Nazi secret operation in Antarctica. As the Allies gather whatever forces they can divert to this new front of the war, a desperate race against time begins in the heart of the frozen continent, one last clash under the shadow of the Mountains of Madness to thwart this final plot of horror and madness.

"Let's get down there," says Oliver. "That fan is a perfect place to secure ropes."

Amadeus looks miffed by all this. "Sorry, I'd just like to pause for a moment. Vhat can ve expect to find down zhere? The electricity vas off by zhat door. Zhere is no ventilation to zhis place. Zhis base seems hardly operational."

"Maybe Jerry's outta gas for his generator? Or saving money?" Stogie mutters quietly.

Stogie slings his Garand and starts clambering quietly down the tunnel as quietly as he can, unless it's just a straight sheer drop.

"Careful there, Stogie. Keep your eyes and ears open. See if you can take a look at the other side of that fan." He says, crouched outside the shaft.

While all this is going on, Nick paces the cave slowly, looking to see if there's anything out of place that might give a clue as to what happened at the base.

After the fan, the hatch takes a turn downwards, with a steep slope of about 45° degrees. The hatch surface is flat and doesn't offer any handhold - or foothold, for that matter. Pointing the flashlight downwards, you can barely see another fan at the end of this section, and maybe the end of the hatch after that.

OOC:   You can reach the other fan at the end of the hatch with a Climb test. No test is needed if you make use of a rope to help yourself, but you'll need someone to hold the rope from the top, or secure it to the fan.  


Spoiler:
You don't notice anything unusual.

Stogie hisses back to the others, "Another fan and a hatch. Need rope. Follow me when I give three tugs."

Oliver lowers a rope to Stogie. "Secure the end to the fan," he replies quietly.

Stogie ties the rope to the first fan then quietly lowers himself on down to the next hatch.

Stogie climbs down the hatch slowly, and as quietly as he can. At the second fan, he stops to secure the rope, and check below with the flashlight. The hatch curves in even steeper, almost vertical, for a few more meters. Then, the light reveals a third fan and, below that, what seems to be a room.

Spoiler:
No noise seems to be coming from the room below.


With the help of the rope, and the walls of the hatch, it shouldn't be too difficult to climb down to the room.

Stogie gives the rest of the team up-hatch a quick double flash of his flashlight then attempts to clamber down to the room below as quietly as he can.

Stogie is the first to lower himself down past the last fan. Silence and darkness welcome him. With the ventilation system down, the air is completely still, unpleasant, but breathable. For a moment, it feels as if you're entering a tomb, but you quickly discard the thought as ridicolous. This is a military base, after all, and probably still full of nazis.

As you move the flashlight around, you reveal a small room full of machinery - all dead, at the moment, but at first glance nothing seems to be actually damaged. There are a few rectangular holes on the walls, covered with grids, probably part of the ventilation system of the base. Finally, your eyes fall on a single steel door, with a wheel mechanism just like the first one you met. It seems to be the only proper way in and out of the room.

Stogie quickly pulls out the 1911 and waits by the door while the others clamber down.

Oliver has his own weapon out once he emerges into the room. "Let's get everyone down here first," he whispers, "then open the door."

Smalls Kemp

Smalls squats at the opening and grabs the rope, ready to get in the shaft. C'mon fellas, our turn. He says, before start lowering himself.

One by one, everyone lowers himself into the room, until it starts to feel cramped. Seven people, in the darkness, trying to stifle any noise, almost holding their breath. You gather around the door, ready for anything that might be waiting on the other side.

OOC:   Let's move on, hopefully the others will come back to posting soon.
