[IC - Chapter One] Group Two (Tom, Smalls, Dowson-Frost)

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.

After the thumping from inside the vent fades, silence shrouds you again. Except this time, it feels ominous. You can't shake the feeling someone's watching you, from behind your back. You're not alone in the base, that much is clear.

"Jesus Christ! We need to warn the others. Fuck. Can't ever get easy, this fucking war, can it?", Dowson-Frost half says, half screams. "I don't know about you guys, but I'd like to be out of here sooner rather than later. I'll keep an eye on the vent, take a look around, see if there's something we can use".

Tom nervously continues his search of the cabinets.

He then makes his way back out & down the corridor to the other door (not the blast door), where he listens closely for any noise.

Smalls Kemp

He nods at Dowson-Frost. "I can't agree with you more. Let's sweep this side of the base and get back to the others as quick as we can. Don't go too far on your own, Tom." He says, as he sees Tom leaving the room. Smalls then proceeds to examine the room.

Tom searches the cabinets quickly, but whatever document might once have been here, has been burnt away by the large fire that ravaged the room. Seeing that the research is fruitless, Tom heads out to the second door in the corridor, straining to hear anything from the other side - but there's only silence.

Smalls is more lucky. Checking out the mess in the center of the room, where once was a large table, he finds rests of electric components and machinery - cutting edge technology, destroyed now. As for their original use, that's not something easily understood.
Moreover, while double checking the cabinets, he looks through a ruined section to discover that there's something hidden behind. Quickly moving them out of the way, Smalls reveals another wooden door, half burned and looking ready to collapse.

Spoiler:
These pieces must have belonged to an Enigma machine. Unfortunately, it's broken beyond repair.

Tom Major

Tom heads back to the room. "Find anything? Seems all quiet out there."

As soon as Tom enters the room, he hears a sound of footsteps coming from the corridor behind his back. Turning in a hurry, weapon ready, he sees Oliver and Amadeus walking towards him. The lights flicker for a moment, then come back to life.

"We're not alone in this place," says Oliver. "There was someone hiding in the air vent, wounded. He crawled away, and Nick's gone in after them. Stogie's waiting below the vent entrance for him."

Smalls Kemp

"Fellas, we have another door here!"

As he sees Oliver and Amadeus he can't help feeling a little relieved. "We saw something too. A dead body... pretty beat up, hanging from the vent. Then all of a sudden something drag it up and run inside the vent. Wait... Nick's on his own? Reckless bastard. Let's hurry things up here.We don't know how many are they."

"Right, let's keep well away from the vents if we can," says Oliver, "and keep an eye on them. What have you found? I see you got the electrics running."

Tom Major

"Looks like Smalls has found another door. Let's check it out."
Tom heads towards the door then stops. "On the other hand, maybe we should try and see if Nick is ok? The vents don't seem like a safe place to be."

"How can we do that?" asks Oliver. "By now he could have gotten anywhere, though I guess someone could follow the blood trail of the wounded guy. Stogie wasn't able to climb up there himself, but Nick made it because he's a good climber. I don't know if anyone else could manage it, and even then, we'd just be putting someone else in danger."

The lights go out again, and this time they stay out.

Oliver lights his torch. "Right, let's get to the generator and get it working again," says Oliver. "It's possible that one of those chaps in the vents is responsible, so proceed with caution."

Tom Major

"Follow me, it's this way."
Tom carefully leads the way back to the generator room, machine gun at the ready.

"What are the Jerries doing in the vents anyway? Something's not right."
