"Where's that last place on the map? Let's see if we can figure out their direction."
There's no obvious order on the map, but there's a list of coordinates. Erewhon - where Cletus can't contact the locals - is about halfway down the list. The two that he could contact are towards the end. If you plot the list you get a rough arc."Where's that last place on the map? Let's see if we can figure out their direction."
Séadna, Smith, Stan -"Warn everyone after Erewhon to get out of there. Set booby traps if you can before you go." He tells Cletus. "Can they get here without crossing the people coming their way?" He asks
"Erewhon is gone. Sorry man but you got to stop worrying about what's gone and move on to who can you save. Start after Erewhon and move on. We have to save lives here." He scolds Cletus

Smith, Séadna, Stan -"Slavers. They grabbed people here. They hit a place called Erewhon. They're heading your way. We'd like to help you either get out of there, fight em off or whatever. All we found alive here was Cletus. Are you well fortified? Can we tell your neighbors to head to you?" Twitch responds.
Waka and Fort have no combat experience and indicate that they're happy to stay here and mind Cletus and the stuff; they both have first aid and basic field medicine training of the sort given to pretty much anybody before they work in the field.Ida speaks to Twitch and the others.
"No question about going, but should we leave the archaeological stuff here? Maybe leave somebody to guard it"
Séadna Smith - ^^^"Cletus start telling the others to report sightings". He says. Twitch takes to group aside and whispers "Dunno. You guys talk to the thing. Think it can help us or talk to someone else? I wouldn't want it to tell someone else to come get it."
Its language mastery is still far from complete but you get the impression that it understands you're hiding it. It can't defend itself physically but it can do some sort of limited psychic defence using the projection (apparition). Finally it says it will keep quiet until you're back.Ida will go converse with the sphere as best as she can. Conveying the notion of the attack and how she wants to protect others. She also asks the sphere if it can defend itself.

Ida won't do anything spectacular on the journey, just meditate and mentally prepare.
OOC: Happy to skip to the destination.
Smith -Twitch scouts out ahead but stays in radio contact. He's told folks behind him if the here rapid clicks there's trouble ahead.
Steevo watches with binoculars from a high point until the statues are unloaded. He then sets up to cameras there to rotate and watch as much as they can. He advises Waka and Fort that we should also stick somewhat close together in case of shit happening so we don't wind up isolated and picked off one by one.
Ida will just have a stroll around Dahomi. Just sketching out convenient cover positions and so forth in case of a fire fight.On the way into town there are some pens with camels and metasaurs, and a handful of rovers and other vehicles parked around but otherwise you get the sense that you're right on the frontiers of civilisation.
As you drive into town you can see a couple of rovers parked outside an adobe building with a sign that says "Bar Joyeuse". This is the place where the rendezvous was arranged.

Smith , Bunch , StanThere is a little scrub and some parked vehicles, and various buildings you could get behind; Bar Joyeuse is a bit exposed, although there is a substantial vehicle park behind it. Your best line of escape would be onto Rue Joyeuse behind the bar, and through one of the compounds across the road.
OOC: You've just come down the Tangara Highway from the North. You have one bike and one hotted up crawler, and you've been asked to meet with the militia here in Dahomi. Steevo is minding comms back at the farm.Smith , Bunch , Stan
"Guys what do say we each take a bike and drive down the highways a bit.
I'll take Tangara South , Twitch takes Tangar North, and Kal takes Kadnikov? First one to spot a biggish collection of vehicles, radios and we regroup at the Bar Joyeuse to see how we'll organise this?
Steevo you mind staying here to monitor things?"
OOC: Sorry, I was still thinking we had extra bikes. Forgot the detail in #1,298OOC: You've just come down the Tangara Highway from the North. You have one bike and one hotted up crawler, and you've been asked to meet with the militia here in Dahomi. Steevo is minding comms back at the farm.
"I think it'd be a good idea, just in case we can see them coming""I can scout south if that's what you all want. I'm always up for a drive!" Twitch says with a smile.
OOC: Are we just looking out for the militia arriving? Or are we expecting trouble to hit before they get here?
