As everyone enters the corridor the cold metallic air washing over them they can see the tunnels are lit but the lighting is low as if the base were in a power saver mode. As they advance further in Portia immediately calls a halt and points out something that takes the others moments to see. Her instinct for danger serves her well as she senses the danger in the web around her, and she directs Uplifts gaze.
Uplift who is on the same page and already scanning finds his penetrating vision blocked by the density of the materials as well as some sort of sensory bafflers built into the walls however he does see the pressure plates and with Portias direction sees the laser grid that sweeps at random down the hallways. The grid he deduces interacts with anything not usurper related and then sounds an alarm alerting the base and causing a lethal response from the inhabitants as well as uncounted turret defenses imbedded in the walls ceiling and floors.
Sebastian can feel the tread of at least a dozen or more heavy metal beasts padding through the metal corridors as he feels through the shadows, the darkness whispers to him of secrets and the myriad lethal dangers of this place. they whisper of an approaching threat and when he sees Dusk and Hooligan react as he does he steps with them group into a side corridor and gestures to bring up a veil of shadows that obscure their beings.
Dusk has been through CQB situations before having had to storm enemy fortifications and bases. the tunnel fighting on one planet against an race of Ant like beings being one particularly gruesome experience she remembers unfondly. Down here she notes the traps but her perceptions are on the sense she developed in those Mantid tunnels. The sense of approaching danger she is able to quickly get everyone into a side corridor and out of sight as two of the Robopanthers clank past their position now hidden thanks to Sebastians quick thinking.
Daniels finely honed street instincts also server him here as while he cant see the traps or tech Portia and Uplift point out he can feel the tread of metal feet on the ground and when the Alien soldier and shadow mage both react hes right behind them putting himself between the more fragile members of the team and the approaching danger. He shares a brief nod of acknowledgement with Dusk as he takes a position by her shoulder phalanx style ready to guard the team.
The panthers pause only a moment to observe the veil of shadows but before they can even consider it something small and metallic squeaks and rattles past them and the two metallic monsters give chase to what Portia and Uplift recognize as a small rat like robo drone crude in form.
Looking back the group can see Gretchen grinning mischieviously as the little goblin unleashes a another quickly scrapped together rat drone which skitters off leading the panthers on a merry chase.
This gives the team a brief respite to consider their options and find a way around the bases detection grid.
Sebastians perception _: 1D20+10 = +10 = 20
solid if Shadow wants to reroll that he may
Everyone hits the mark especially portia and uplift
Portia and uplift note the laser traps
Dusk and Hooligan and Sebastian note the drones in time to take a side corridor to avoid them
Gretchen provides a brief distraction which gives you guys a chance to plan.
Uplift can make tech rolls as desired some dcs below
Hacking the system DC 35 requires computer terminal and must be maintained
Hacking sub systems DC 30 can be done remotely
other DCs as needed
Please proceed at your pleasure
