[After a couple of weeks of planning and work, Vatheon is ready to end their captivity.
The information that has been brought out during the last Station Master session is that the Scientists are south from the outside barrier surrounding the Island. It appears they are on an Island on their own just out of sight from Vatheon’s Island. There will need to be a team to get through the barrier to get to the Scientists there to, hopefully, apprehend them and bring them to justice. The Station Master wants them to answer for what they have done.
If using the Corridors were the plan, then sending someone ahead of time to run recon of how far the Island is would be a good thing to do. Going gung-ho would also be an option. It’s entirely up to anyone involved.
There is also a broken submarine characters can fix up in the old Lab.
Those are just suggestions and there are other ways to go about this as well if anyone chooses to be part of the break-out-of-the-barrier-to-get-to-the-scientists team.
There is the problem of Fluffy guarding the barrier. A team needs to injure, kill, or otherwise subdue the giant Mosasaur. This should be accomplished while Team One is breaking through the other barrier.
Feferi wishes to distract or even befriend Fluffy, now would be a good time. As long as they hold his attention long enough for Team One to break through the barrier, then it'll work.
Team Three will need to guard the City as well as go after the Head Nurse. This should happen at the same time that Team One has landed on the Island. They need to take out the Head Nurse and the Scientists close to the same time in order to keep one from tipping off the other. She may use curses to get the upper hand and, if her April Fool’s Day prank was anything to go from, is very ruthless.
When everyone has finished their parts with the Head Nurse either disposed of or apprehended and the Scientists all locked up in the old Lab back on Vatheon Island, the Station Master will contact the outside to get authorities to send boats to Island.
Everyone will have a choice to stay in the world that Vatheon is part of or go back home.

Who: Dhaos and you
What: the big fluffy sheep needs to talk to people
When: all this week
Where: all over the island
[So this scientists were insisting on having a few last bits of fun with them before cutting to the chase, hm? Well, that suits Dhaos just fine. If they're still being messed with as normal - even if it seems to be a repeat - then nobody has been tipped off that they know. Still, he must admit that the first time was rather less of an annoyance than the first time. Being part unicorn had certainly had its drawbacks, but at least then he had had the advantage of opposable thumbs. He would definitely need to remember to replace the back door at some point next week. It was a shame to break it down.
Regardless of his current impediment though, things need to be done. Sadly, said things rather requiring thumbs. So anyone on the island being approached by a particularly fluffy yellow ram about 4ft at the shoulder, don't be alarmed. He probably just wants a favor done.]
[If you've visited the island any time in the past week, then you would have had the briefest conversation with Station Master in the elevator, right before you stepped off onto the island, demeanor as polite as ever as he speaks--]
I'm trying out some new cookie recipes and wanted to know if you wanted to try some. Stop by, when you and your friends are able. I’m thinking of baking up a big batch on Saturday and pass them out where we met before. You really should come.[--before the doors of the elevator will close, dissuading further conversation. He certainly looked far too serious to be talking about cookies.]---[For those who take Station Master up on his offer, he'll be waiting by the warehouse up on the island, distracted, before waving people inside. Inside are cookies, muffins, and cups of water, but those aren't the real reason he's summoned you here. When Station Master steps inside, he removes his hat, but his gaze is still distant, as if he has other thoughts preoccupying him.]
I’m sorry for calling everyone here on such short notice. I’m afraid I had little choice though and my message is not an enjoyable one.[His expression is serious now, very serious.]
This morning I intercepted a message meant for the Head Nurse from the lead scientists who are behind this experiment. I was able to erase the message, leaving her unaware of its existence for now but I’m afraid I’ve only been able to buy us some time, nothing more.[He’s reaching into his pocket now, drawing out a folded piece of paper. The message for those who’d rather read it black on white.]
It said they have gathered all the data needed and are shutting down this project. They’ve also given her the all clear on eradicating all left over assets. That is to say… you.((Now with a summary))
Lloyd and MinakoWhere:
Backdated to 7/02 (the day after this
Closed[Lloyd's sitting on a bench in the park, not really paying attention to his surroundings right now. His brow is furrowed in thought, worry clearly etched on his face. He has a problem, but he doesn't know how to fix it.
He knows the half-elf is going to have a problem with this curse. People need hugs in order to stay warm, but Mithos just doesn't hug people. It's going to be up to other people to hug him first. The problem is, who does Mithos know who'd be willing to do that for him? Lloyd can and has, but he's only one person. He's not enough by himself. He just can't be there enough.
Dammit, what do I do?]
Who: Dhaos and you
When: Pretty much anytime during the curse he's not otherwise occupied
Where: various spots throughout the city
Style: I prefer brackets
Status: Open as the treasure chests in a dungeon when you've got a rogue in the party
[For those not to caught up in saving the day to notice anything else, they might notice a rather tall blond off doing small acts of heroism for people. Nothing about the turtleneck and jeans look he has going would separate him from an ordinary citizen, if not for the very blank face mask he wears. Who is this mysterious man? If he's really a superhero, why the general lack of outfit? Why stop purse snatchings when there are larger crimes to worry about? Why not just go up and actually ask him instead of standing around wondering these things?]
((ooc: If anyone wants to make up a crime for Dhaos to help on, go right ahead. His power is generating barriers, which he can change the size and shape of. It's one of those things he has to actively focus on doing though.))
Who: Laharl, Saber, and you!
Where: Some uninhabited part of the island
Style: We'll match?
[Although they made sure to stage their fight well away from the village to avoid too much collateral damage, anyone on the island might have noticed the smoke and distant booms resulting from the battle. The two powerful forces clashed for several hours, throwing up the earth and scorching the make-shift arena.
And now at last they've come to an amicable draw, though that might not be the conclusion anyone draws from the sudden quiet. Surely someone is dead after all that, right?
But no. Some nearby trees are on fire and the terrain looks quite a bit rockier, but both warriors are still standing. Laharl brushes dust off his hands and inspects an already-healing gash in his arm.]
((Feel free to come investigate and say hello to the pair.))
Who: Lloyd Irving and anyone
Where: All over!
[Lloyd's on a mission. He has no doubt it'll probably be awkward at some points, but it's an important one nonetheless. The nurse told him that people need hugs to keep warm, but not everyone would know that. Who knew who might be freezing to death because they didn't know what they needed to cure it?
Not that hugs fix the problem completely. The effect of the last hug Lloyd had gotten is already starting to wear off. Still, once people know, it'll be easier for them to make sure they get enough physical contact to keep them warm.
So here he is, searching for anyone who looks like they need a hug.]
[The mingle party this month is taking place in the field on the North end of the park. There are balloons, streamers, flags and signs all showing the way to the gathering. There is a table set up with fresh fruit, cookies, cupcakes, sandwiches, hot dogs and hamburgers. Another table consists of various beverages and pretty blue jars to use as drinking glasses.
In the middle of the field one can find a large ball pit with inflatable sharks inside. There are also a couple of bounce houses and buckets full of water balloons. Towels and reclining lawn chairs were close by for anyone who needed to dry off or sunbathe.
Last but not least, there is a large tent full of pillows of all shapes and sizes. There is a movie projector set up to use a tent wall as a movie screen. Bring your own movies or choose from the great classics like The Count of Monte Fishto and The Seven Samuray. Outside of the tent was a photo booth set up with a box of silly props. A whole bunch of silly props.]

[True to Gamzee's word, on Sunday afternoon, there is indeed stuff on the beach fit for a beach party. Which, lets all be honest here, is something we should congratulate him on cause the chances of him forgetting a party he suggested in the first place are about 42.0% .
It is very clearly not a strictly organized beach party however. A variety of beach related things (seriously, the shopkeepers were hella awesome here and had gladly helped Gamzee bring up a whole load of shit he hadn't even known existed) lay strewn on the sand, everything from beach balls to small, colourful shovels for sand castle building (no buckets, wow, what was he, some kinda perv?) to various drink coolers stocked with faygo, faygo, some more faygo, and just for the people wanting something different, some faygo too.
Hope you like faygo.
Or brought your own drinks.
But seriously, anything you might need to have fun at a beach party is there (except, as mentioned, tiny plastic buckets, please this is a very culturally sensitive beach party) up to a few surf boards, even. So grab whatever you want, find a friend or make a new one, and have some fun.]
[ooc: Please treat this post as your general mingle log! Gamzee invited everybody, so come on up, grab a cold faygo and have fun.]
