One last question, what would happen to your form if you lost your pendant. Would you change into your true form or stay as your current form or something else?

>Could this little guy be handsome wolf's son? COMPARE him to the PHOTOS.
No, he DOESN’T look like the handsome wolf’s son. Nice guess though.

>>858375
>Tell him you think there's something on his back and then tell him to lift up his shirt so you can look at it.
Kip asks politely if he can check the kid’s back. The wolf allows him to.

Kip gasps and gulps loudly. He backs off quickly, his hands shaking slightly.
The wolf’s back is crossed by three large bleeding cuts, and a few other cuts in a smaller size around it. A big part of the fur has been ripped it off, and... there’s something, under the skin. It’s pulsing. But it’s not his heart.

:kipsconfused: < A-Are you sure you’re okay...?

WHY is everyone making innuendos about Kip and this child? All he did was say he felt something under the wolf’s shirt. IT’S A WOUND, AN OPEN. BLEEDING. ALIEN WOUND. You guys started distorting in the dirtiest way.
Kip has absolutely NO INTEREST in what you’re all thinking of, and finds it really downright disgusting to think about. Not to mention that Kip is BARELY over what could be considered a teenager in earthling years, which is, to say, way below a mating age for a Therran. The Therran education system is very short compared to the earthling one; Kip is a young rookie. Why in the hell else would Kip be this innocent and small in size? He’s too tiny EVEN for a Keothera. And, remarkably, he has NO SEXUAL DESIRE WHATSOEVER, specially towards earthlings. His obsession for lagomorphs is merely a cuddly, warm thing, NOT a sexual thing.

The only attraction Kip can feel is ROMANTIC.

Kip has a LOT of obsessions, ranging from fluffy fur to earthling foot paws, and all of them fall under the non-sexual label for Kip. Not to mention that engaging in any kind of intercourse would make Kip EXTREMELY nervous, regardless of the species. Kip is still a virgin. All of this makes poor, sweet, innocent Kip extremely uncomfortable in many levels.

Kip sulks. Poor innocent Kip isn’t the best at getting jokes and baits. Sadly. His WILL TO FIGHT and FAITH IN THE VOICES have decreased greatly.

>Don't worry about taking him anywhere right now. Help him to get better first, than worry about moving him unless your pretty sure an enemy is coming. If thats the case, run.
>Otherwise, I recommend to follow these steps:
>0. Stop correcting him when he says different things or incorrect things. Waste of time. Medical emergency here.
>1. First thing do to, ask him for permission to roll up his back if he can respond and say you felt something strange on the exact location it is on their back. If they know what it is than they'll just tell you and you save time, and this helps get rid of weirdness factors if you check.
>2. 2nd thing is dizziness. Check his eyes for irregular pupil sizes, if you find those than he is definitely poisoned (Nausea, Vomiting, Headaches, and irregular pupil sizes) Might have a migraine. There's a chance its a problem in the inner ear where balance is regulated.
>3. Memory. He remembers things and doesn't remember other things. He remembers that he prayed to Angels and has memories of being told that Angels exist (whether that is true in this universe doesn't matter right now) This could be passed off as just can't think straight in pain and dizziness, but next we're told that his mind feels hazy, but he remembers "waking up here" aka he came into existence here or much more likely was mind wiped of his memories of everything but unimportant information, like angels and wizards. I say this because it sounds like your race is the kind that assumes such things are useless and inferior. He's been here for longer according to his gut feeling, which is probably correct. I doubt that information about angels and wizards he learned in here, so it probably came from outside of here, so he got kidnapped by someone in your race (a human wouldn't do it on their own without orders and a monster would eat them). This means there's may be multiple of your kind here, since I doubt the royal healer could pull off a mind wiping trick or keep doing it. Also, this whole thing'd collapse if that royal healer was the only one here already.
KIP’S JAW DROPS as he’s gifted with TRUE KNOWLEDGE by the WISEST of voices. He claps excitedly and thanks you repeatedly. This Keothera shall follow your guide thoroughly and PROMISES to do his BEST!
0. Yes, you’re right. Kip apologizes bashfully for losing focus a bit there.
1. The wolf is seemingly oblivious of the wound.
2. Kip nods and checks the wolf’s pupils. They’re... oddly irregular. Yes, the wolf has all the symptoms you described. Woof stares at Kip curiously, as if wanting to know why his expression changed. Kip doesn’t know how to tell him yet. He’s just a child.
3. PERFECT! This is EXACTLY what Kip has been trying to get into all this time! No earthling would ever have done such a thing. And while royal healers are very powerful, they CERTAINLY CANNOT pull of a mind wiping spell. Kip glances at the wolf for a second; he does look pretty tormented, and often he seems to be startled by anything around him; he’s in a lot of distress, which is a common side effect of a mind wiping spell. You’re completely right! And if a mind spell is what caused it, that means...
>The real question here that we don't know about is why he was left in there with that monster unrestrained (escaped by himself). My theory is that monster might of been a mind mage also. When you probed the monster, you got very little to nothing, this may be mental walls of some sort, indicating an experienced mind mage perhaps.
Kip doubts the creature could have any kind of mind powers at all. Instead, what he felt when trying to confuse the monster’s mind was... A blocking spell. It’s like if someone was trying to protect it. But Kip can’t figure out why anyone would do such a thing. These creatures certainly cannot be just minions, what in the world could even have control over such a creature?
>Also, are there cameras here? Most agencies that are really important have insane amounts of them, one, two, three per room. Also, hidden/super small cameras exist.
Don’t worry, Kip took care of that when he first broke in. He has casted a special spell on himself. Any cameras in his magic range will be reduced to static. It’s a temporary spell, however, so he’d better hurry.

>>858707
>Check to see if he has a Heart Beat. According to the notes, subjects #3 and #4 don't have them. There's a chance this poor being is the other subject, which could explain both of them being locked in the same cage... and the non annihilation of that him starts opening up too many questions...
AMAZING observation! Kip carefully checks the wolf’s heartbeat.
He... can’t hear anything. Except for a weak, pulsing sound, coming from... That really gruesome wound. Or whatever is under it.

>>858711
>One last question, what would happen to your form if you lost your pendant. Would you change into your true form or stay as your current form or something else?
Kip frowns slightly. Losing his pendant would make him very weak. If he still had a bit of MAGIC ENERGY in him, he’d be able to keep his cat form, but wouldn’t be able to use any spells, EVEN his TELEKINESIS while he does so. Chances are that yes, he COULD end up stuck in this cat form. However, dying would for sure turn him back to his Keothera form.

>I'd recommend after finishing up basic first aid to get back to the locker.
Kip nods, and he wasn’t worried about hurrying up, until he heard a noise coming from the elevator. Someone else is here. The green light glowed pretty bright as the noises got louder.

Kip didn’t have a lot of time to even think. He grabs Woof and gets the fuck outta there.

Kip’s now in the LOCKER ROOM. The room looks the same as it did before. He closes the door and takes a deep breath.

The three main cuts look like a claw mark. How deep are they? Do any of those cuts reach Wolf's spine?
The two wounds on top are a little weird. Are they superficial cuts or deep incisions? I would expect those to be intentionally made to insert something inside Wolf's thorax, maybe even inside his lungs. Were those holes made through his scapula?
The black goo that is oozing seem to come from his blood. If that is the case I would expect his entire body to be contaminated, you can test that by making a small cut to see if there are traces of the black goo. That is a terrible predicament, to remove it you would need to filtrate all of his blood. Also the monster you killed bled both red blood and black goo, too similar to be a coincidence.
Is the pulsating thing just under the skin or deeper? If it's deeper, how can you see? Does it emanate light?

If the creature can contaminate people with it's claws, why didn't it scratched you? When it got the chance all it did was press you arm against broken glass instead of digging it's claw in your flesh condemning you to the same illness this kid is suffering. Why would it act like that?

Judging by the wound I think this kid is doom. You are not a doctor so don't even try to mess with the interior of his thorax. The only hope is finding a researcher around who already developed a treatment. If you want any chance in preventing the predictable fate to develop in front of your eyes better hurry up and get to know the staff.

Tell Wolf to wait and go see who came out of the elevator. Make him promise that, if we meet someone else, he won't tell them about your powers or that you defeated the monster.
Unless this person was capable of watching you from far away at most they would hear the noises. Since it makes no sense for the side window to access that room through another floor I'm confidant this person wouldn't know about what happened beyond what they can see. ...unless it's someone with telepathic connection with you, the kid or the monster. Silly hypothesis aside, if it's someone you can talk with you can basic lie to their face, so don't spill out that you were responsible for the show of brutality spread across the room.
Again, we are hoping to meet someone who can help us understand what is going on but approach with caution. Improvise shield in front of your face, loose objects that can be used as darts in your pockets.

Can you pull the goo off the kid with telekinesis? If so, try pulling the pulsating thing as well, and trick his mind into not feeling pain. As for his non-beating heart, try squeezing it repeatedly with telekinesis to make it beat again, but ONLY IF YOU REALLY BELIEVE YOU CAN DO IT.

Hmmm...
Your spell for disabling the cameras may become a problem if someone notices the pattern between your location and the camera that is currently under static. It could be a way to track you through different rooms because the camera would be static. At the very worst right now assuming someone is manning the cameras they'd probably call for security where the camera is static. Assuming they're competent enough to always treat camera malfunctions as full scale security breaches instead of just sending a technician in with a few guards or on their own.

Those wounds look unnatural too, If I recall correctly those slashes should hit bone, yet he's obviously doesn't have broken bone (He'd noticed, a large amount of pain if you try to move those things, especially rapidly)

Unfortunately, curing poison would probably mean chemicals and analysis that would be impossible right now assuming there isn't a way to get around it with magic.

Oh, very important information. Taking in account the relative distance of the black blood that went down is moving compared to speed you saw it for as long, that wound was caused recently. This probably isn't true, check his shirt for bloodstains.

Otherwise, you can try bandaging it, but that wound is so big. The dizziness is probably caused by blood loss. Symptoms for RAPID blood loss include low blood pressure and dizziness, therefore he is rapidly bleeding. So, of course, you must rapidly bandage him first, It might get dire enough that you may need to use magic.

Get out your map, highlight the elevator and your current room and the place you just dashed from. Time for defensive positions.

Assume you got 30 seconds worst case scenario and 30 more seconds due to investigation of that dead monster people will probably stop for and/or cautious movement to try and find you and you spent maybe half of it bandaging. The door opens inwards, so you could potentially try blocking opening of the door with stuff. If you hear rapid movement, keep working. If you hear slow careful stealthy quiet footsteps, you should probably stop doing this. Once your finished start inspecting him for more injuries.

For the beating thing? I have no idea. Its probably magical though, technical stuff generally don't include unnecessary light and beating, especially if its internal to save on battery life. Its likely, however, that there is a tracking device inside that thing, or multiple depending on levels of paranoia here (possibly even outside of that device).

I have no idea if you could jam it with magic, but if you could and it does exist, do it.

Sending the kid out is a decent idea, except you forget that we just confirmed this is a test subject and would probably be more likely to be targeted than us.

And for the kid being doomed? He is poisoned and possibly rapidly loosing blood out of his back. Getting rid of the poison is first priority, bandaging second actually, disregard what I said earlier. While its true he is losing blood rapidly, try to get out the poison if you think you can do so under 1 minute using magic. Otherwise just bandage, its too risky.

Its possible whoever is in the elevator is non-hostile or hostile, either one. A few clues though, the current time might clue us in whether or not employees are currently entering work, which is good and bad, good because that doctor could help us, bad because of the high chance they hire people who just do this stuff for money or have to do it for money. This is unlikely though, since a Thorran lost his pendant due to something...

Really, that lost Pendant really kind of creeps me out on what exactly could be lurking in the shadows.

Whatever it is, stay focused and do your best, and don't be afraid to start using magic liberally now to help him. He would probably be doomed if your some normal earthling (excluding medical professional and large amounts of luck).

But your a Keothera.

Kip takes a long and deep sigh.

The fluffy alien feline pulls himself together slowly, listening to the voices.

That would be a freaky thing to do.
The black goo seems to be FLOWING ALONG with the wolf’s BLOOD. Pulling out is KINDA IMPOSSIBLE. Yet the substances still surprisingly DON’T MIX.
Pulling off the only pulsating thing in his body doesn’t feel like a good idea either.
Kip is CLUMSY with his telekinesis too, as much as he doesn’t wanna admit that. He would rather NOT risk using it on the kid’s HEART.
Chances are he could end up pulling it outta the wolf’s chest.

>>858973
>The three main cuts look like a claw mark. How deep are they? Do any of those cuts reach Wolf's spine?
The cuts look VERY deep. Kip isn’t sure HOW DEEP they’re exactly though. He doesn’t wanna touch them, not only because it’d be weird for Woof, but because he isn’t sure what kinda things could happen.
>The two wounds on top are a little weird. Are they superficial cuts or deep incisions? I would expect those to be intentionally made to insert something inside Wolf's thorax, maybe even inside his lungs. Were those holes made through his scapula?
Yes, the smaller cuts above the bigger ones are also really deep, and they pass through the scapula. They do seem like they were made to insert something into the wolf’s thorax. Kip has no clue what.
>The black goo that is oozing seem to come from his blood. If that is the case I would expect his entire body to be contaminated, you can test that by making a small cut to see if there are traces of the black goo. That is a terrible predicament, to remove it you would need to filtrate all of his blood. Also the monster you killed bled both red blood and black goo, too similar to be a coincidence.
>Is the pulsating thing just under the skin or deeper? If it's deeper, how can you see? Does it emanate light?
The thing pulsating is very deep under the wolf’s skin. It’s covered in muscle and disgusting to look at, and it doesn’t emanate any light whatsoever. And yes, what leaks out from the wolf’s wounds is very similar to the monster’s.
If the creature can contaminate people with it's claws, why didn't it scratched you? When it got the chance all it did was press you arm against broken glass instead of digging it's claw in your flesh condemning you to the same illness this kid is suffering. Why would it act like that?
Good hypothesis, but Kip doesn’t think the contamination happened through the claws. Kip guesses the deep cuts were made before contamination. Something was inserted through them.
>Judging by the wound I think this kid is doom. You are not a doctor so don't even try to mess with the interior of his thorax. The only hope is finding a researcher around who already developed a treatment. If you want any chance in preventing the predictable fate to develop in front of your eyes better hurry up and get to know the staff.
Kip frowns. You’re right. The kid’s condition is critical, and Kip has no knowledge on medicine whatsoever. Woof won’t survive just by hiding here. He knows what he has to do, as much as he didn’t wanna get involved with the staff here.

You’re right, but regardless, it’s STILL less worrying than watching a very bloody showdown between a psychic alien cat and a murderous muscular beast. Kip’s identity is SAFE at the very least. It was a sacrifice he had to take.
>Those wounds look unnatural too, If I recall correctly those slashes should hit bone, yet he's obviously doesn't have broken bone (He'd noticed, a large amount of pain if you try to move those things, especially rapidly)
The wounds look painfully unnatural. Like mentioned before, chances are they have been made to insert something in.
>Unfortunately, curing poison would probably mean chemicals and analysis that would be impossible right now assuming there isn't a way to get around it with magic.
Yes, sadly, there isn’t. Not for Kip at the very least.
>Oh, very important information. Taking in account the relative distance of the black blood that went down is moving compared to speed you saw it for as long, that wound was caused recently. This probably isn't true, check his shirt for bloodstains.
His shirt HAS a lot of stains with shades of red and covered in black goo, and it smells very bloody. Kip noticed the scent from the moment the wolf approached him, but he just assumed it was the monster instead. It’s mildly concerning.
>Otherwise, you can try bandaging it, but that wound is so big. The dizziness is probably caused by blood loss. Symptoms for RAPID blood loss include low blood pressure and dizziness, therefore he is rapidly bleeding. So, of course, you must rapidly bandage him first, It might get dire enough that you may need to use magic.
Kip nods. He’ll do his best to bandage the wolf as soon as he can!
He has still kept some magic cloth he used to bandage his wrist after the beast from the last room attacked him. It should work fine on the wolf too. Though the cloth has very slight healing properties only, not gonna help a lot.
>Get out your map, highlight the elevator and your current room and the place you just dashed from.
PERFECT IDEA! Kip retrieves a PEN from a table in the room and then begins to update his MAP. He makes a few annotations about each area too.
>Time for defensive positions.
>Assume you got 30 seconds worst case scenario and 30 more seconds due to investigation of that dead monster people will probably stop for and/or cautious movement to try and find you and you spent maybe half of it bandaging.

If you hear slow careful stealthy quiet footsteps, you should probably stop doing this. Once your finished start inspecting him for more injuries.
Another great idea! Kip nods, and looks for something to block the door. Sadly, he can’t find much on this room except the table. The lockers are kinda stuck to the ground, he can’t move them. He can hold the door with his telekinesis too if you think it’ll work!

>>859569
>Sending the kid out is a decent idea, except you forget that we just confirmed this is a test subject and would probably be more likely to be targeted than us.
Kip does NOT wanna send the kid out. Not only would it be risky for the child, it would also just feel very wrong to him. Plus, there MAY be more beasts around.
He nods, and ensures you he’ll
>And for the kid being doomed? He is poisoned and possibly rapidly loosing blood out of his back. Getting rid of the poison is first priority, bandaging second actually, disregard what I said earlier. While its true he is losing blood rapidly, try to get out the poison if you think you can do so under 1 minute using magic. Otherwise just bandage, its too risky.
Kip frowns. Sadly, no, Kip’s magic is too limited to mind and a few minor spells like light and fire. He can’t do much. I mean, he CAN, but... Casting one of THE MAJOR SPELLS will take too much time, which he lacks now.
>Its possible whoever is in the elevator is non-hostile or hostile, either one. A few clues though, the current time might clue us in whether or not employees are currently entering work, which is good and bad, good because that doctor could help us, bad because of the high chance they hire people who just do this stuff for money or have to do it for money. This is unlikely though, since a Thorran lost his pendant due to something...
The place is NOT very active nowadays, don’t worry. It’s meant to be very much in the process of abandonment, and as mentioned before, the activity here has been pretty small from what Kip has noticed. At least on the outside.
>Really, that lost Pendant really kind of creeps me out on what exactly could be lurking in the shadows.
Kip is ALSO very creeped out about the lost pendant too. He has no idea how a Therran could’ve just lost their pendant like that.
>Whatever it is, stay focused and do your best, and don't be afraid to start using magic liberally now to help him. He would probably be doomed if your some normal earthling (excluding medical professional and large amounts of luck).
>But your a Keothera.
These words fill Kip with LOTS of motivation to keep thriving to help the wolf. It makes him smile very brightly. He’ll put the plan to practice right now, and hopes it’ll all work out!

Kip hears foot steps, coming closer, slowly. Someone is at the door.

A sudden clicking noise echoes through the room.

They’ve just opened the door. And by the other sound that came right after that, they also have a gun. It’s an earthling one, but it can still do some huge damage to Kip’s fragile body. Kip tries his hardest to hold the door in place, but whoever is on the other side is really STRONG.

Kip is carrying the PENS and the few remaining GLASS PIECES from the other room. He’s not sure what to expect. It’s obvious holding the door won’t do much good. The person pushing it isn’t giving up. What should Kip do?

He has a gun, and if you can't jam or stop it taking cover is a good idea, but i doubt there is any cover.

When you let go on the handle try to steal their gun with telekinesis and back out of range and point it at him.

If this fails try to either take cover or try to dash at him and fight in melee.

Pefect! Kip lets go of the door suddenly. The plan works smoothly.

A fox falls on the floor groaning in surprise. He drops the gun, which fires at the wall, making the incredibly loud sound echo through the room. The fox trembles and sweats nervously at the sight of Kip, whimpering under his breath.

:artiesad: NO! OH, PLEASE NO! I WAS SO CLOSE. WHY ARE YOU HERE?

:kipssad: Wait, calm down!

The fox seems to be in a really bad state and very desperate. He tries to reach out for his gun, but Kip pushes it away with his telekinesis. All it seems to do is make the fox even more freaked out though.

:kipssad: What do you mean “let me go”? Have they been keeping you captive here? You can talk to me, I promise you I’ll help.

:artiesad: You... How do you not know? I... Please, let me go. I just wanna see it once again. One more time!

:kipsconfused: Uh... See what?

:artienervous: The sun. Please. I really wanna see it.

:kipsfrown: ... Look, I...

Kip frowns staring at the fox with an overwhelming amount of emotions going on inside him right now. The fox stands dangerously close to him now, but he isn’t a lot scared at all. He gently reaches out for the fox, with his hand shaking slightly.

:kipssweet: I promise you’ll be okay. As much as I have no idea what’s going on in here, I promise nothing bad will happen to you. Now calm down. You’ll see the sun so many times in the future, I promise you will.

:artienervous: ... I...

:artieblush: Thank you. Very much. Oh my gosh, I’m literally going to cry!

:kipssmile: Shh! It’s okay! Tell me, what’s your name?

:artienervous: I’m Artie! That’s one of the many things they call me, at least. And I like it!

:kipsicon: Cool name! I’m Kip. Nice to meet you!

:artieblush: Not a very nice environment for any meeting, but nice to meet you too!

:kipsblush: Yeah...

:artiesad: .. Can I... Get the gun back now? Just for safety.

:kipsnervous: I... don’t know. Look, I-

:artiecry: What? Do you not trust me? I’ve told you my name! C’mon!

:kipsfrown: ... Yeah, but, like... I-I just don’t know if...

:artieblush: Sigh. Fine. Can you just give me a hug then? I need one. Pretty please?

:kipssweet: I... Yes, sure. C’mere!

Kip can’t deny the hug to the poor fox. The fox clings onto him squeezing him in a really tight hug, and Kip blushes brightly, with his face buried in the fox’s warm and sweaty fur. He’s a little uncomfy, but returns the hug anyways.

The fox pulls Kip into a sudden tight hug. Kip squeaks and flinches at the fox’s sweaty fur, but just giggles in response. His warmth is comforting.

When you are done with... whatever this is... ask him what he knows about the monster he no doubt saw on his way and the infection it causes. The conspiracy would be a bigger concern if Wolf wasn't basic a terminal cancer patient. You need to know if there is a treatment.
If you got him calm enough get him to explain who are they, what they do, what was done to Artie and what have he donne. Lastly you need to find out if Artie is infected like Wolf. No point leaving if he will suffer a horrible death and kill people around him.

Make sure Artie isn't contamined by the black goo. His wish to see the sun might be caused by it, luring him out of the facility only to spread it to other people outside.

0: Check to see if he's trying to make a grab for your Pendant. Its possible this is the dude or a part of the dudes that took out that Royal Medical Therran. Do not assume an Earthling can't do this or anything like that, This is even more likely considering how he assumed you were a part of them, despite looking like a earthling.

1: Ask if he is the Rhyieas Storgehal. That dude that wrote the medical report.

2: Ask them what they're looking for. If its the Pendant don't give it to them.

3: If his answers satisfy you give him back the gun.

Kip squirms a little in the hug. The fox is significantly taller than him, and the tight hug leaves him powerless. He’s a little nervous.

Artie is seemingly comfortable like this though, so Kip decides to ask him some QUESTIONS.

:kipssad: Hey! S-So, um... Are you hurt or anything?

:artienervous: No. I’m just fine. They couldn’t touch me.

:kipssmile: ... Glad to hear! Yes. Keep it that way!

:artiebored: I’ll try my best to. Would have more chances with the gun though.

:kipsnervous: I-I’ll give it back, don’t worry, just... Later.

>>859853
>Why do I feel like the hug is a trap and they are going to inject you with something?
It... DOES feel suspicious, but the fox isn’t holding anything, gladly. Kip would’ve noticed a needle, even one of the really small Therran ones.

>>859861
>Maybe the hug is just an excuse to take Kip pedant.
Kip really hopes it isn’t. The thought makes him feel very uneasy.
Don’t worry, Kip’s pendant isn’t THAT easy to take off though. It’s sealed with the strongest sealing spell Kip knows. While it’s NOT indestructible, it takes strength to break it, which... This fox MAY have. But it won’t be all that easy anyways!

>>859860
>When you are done with... whatever this is... ask him what he knows about the monster he no doubt saw on his way and the infection it causes. The conspiracy would be a bigger concern if Wolf wasn't basic a terminal cancer patient. You need to know if there is a treatment.
:kipsnervous: Have you, ehm... Seen the monster outside? Like, you know, the... thing.
:artiesad: ...

Kip asks him about the monster, but Arti remains oddly silent.

The fox gives Kip a very startled look when hearing about the infection. Sadly, he just shrugs and remains quiet about that one too, speaking after a while.

:artienervous: I don’t know what to do about that, I’m sorry.

>If you got him calm enough get him to explain who are they, what they do, what was done to Artie and what have he donne. Lastly you need to find out if Artie is infected like Wolf. No point leaving if he will suffer a horrible death and kill people around him.
Kip asks Artie about the goo, but he ensures he wasn’t infected. The fox hasn’t any noticeable wounds that are similar to the wolf’s. Artie glares at Kip when he asks about what happened, and he starts speaking in a low voice.

:artiebored: I don’t remember anything, but I know exactly what happened to me.

:artieangry: They brought me here, I know they did. I don’t remember anything from my past at all, but I know they were the ones who brought me here.

:artieteeth: Not a single one. I don’t know anyone. Why’d they do it? This is so... cruel.

:artienervous: Please, let me go. All I want is to see the sun. Whatever I’ve done here is not going to matter once I’m finally free.

The hug starts to get a LITTLE TOO TIGHT, even more than before.

>>860041
>1: Ask if he is the Rhyieas Storgehal. That dude that wrote the medical report.
Kip doesn’t think so, but he decides to obey the voice and ask.

:artieangry: How do you know about Rhyieas? You told me you didn’t work here!

:kipsnervous: N-No, I don’t! When I got here I found a report on the table. It had his name on it. Uh... Are you him?

:artiebored: Do I look like a fucking doctor to you?

:kipsblush: Ehm... I dunno. Maybe?

:artieangry: No. I’m NOT the doctor. But I do know exactly who he’s.

Kip asks more about the Dr. Rhyieas Storgekal. The reaction isn’t good.

:kipssad: Can you... tell me... a little more about him?

:artiebored: ... Dr. Rhyieas is not a bad person. But he’s made choices. Awful ones.

:kipsconfused: What do you mean...?

:artiesad: Nothing important. I would prefer not to touch on that subject. Please.

:kipsfrown: Uh... I think that’s okay. Not gonna force you.

>2: Ask them what they're looking for. If its the Pendant don't give it to them.
That’s a subtle question, but whatever you say, mighty voice in Kip’s head!

:artieangry: What do you mean “what I’m looking for”?

:kipsblush: I-I dunno! Eh, I just... Nevermind, don’t worry!

>3: If his answers satisfy you give him back the gun.
Kip isn’t pleased with this. He decides to risk a little more with questions.

:kipsconfused: Why don’t you look startled by the blood in the other room?

:artiebored: ... I’m used to it.

:kipsnervous: Wait, when did you get used to it? Do you see it often?

:artiesad: I... don’t know, it just doesn’t startle me anymore.

:kipsfrown: This... isn’t enough. Who’re you? And what are you trying to escape from?

:artiecry: You... shouldn’t be here. They won’t be easy on you just because you are one of them.

:kipsicon: Who’re they? Please, you need to tell me. I’m here to help!

:artiesad: What’s taking place here is bigger than you, Kip.

:artienervous: Bigger than me. It’s bigger than all of us. You have to leave.

:artiecry: Please, let us go.

:kipsfrown: ... Did they hurt you?

:artieangry: ... Yes.

:kipssad: I cannot let it go unpunished, Artie. Please.

:artiesad: ... It’s okay.

:artiebored: You’re a really nice cat. I...

:artiecry: I’m sorry for this.

:kipsnervous: Thank you, but- Uh, wait, sorry for what?-

Artie’s answers are a little too vague, but that’s NOT what really startles Kip.


The fragile Keothera can feel the fox’s fingers twiddling around his neck briefly.


It’s a trap.

The fox tries to take Kip’s pendant off, but fails at the task. Kip’s sealing spell is very effective. He has a plan B, however.

Kip’s very sensitive kitty feet are no longer touching the ground. The fox holds him in the air.

Artie SLAMS Kip over the lockers at his full strength. Kip screams out, his fragile body not being made to handle such an impact, and he’s almost too helpless to fight back at all.

Kip stares into Artie’s eyes shaking in fear. The fox gets a hold of Kip’s pendant and pulls it at his full strength. Poor, sweet Kip groans and struggles, but the fox is far too strong and doesn’t let go.

The pendant glows a bright tone of green.

:artiedoom: I JUST REALLY WANT TO SEE THE SUN.

Kip has TIME and enough ENERGY to pull off a MIND SPELL, but he isn’t sure if it’s going to work. It can work perfectly and save him, or fail miserably and end up in utter doom. Alternatively, he can try and fight back physically, he’s carrying the PENS and a bit of BROKEN GLASS too. Keep in mind that Kip is NOT very good at CLOSE COMBAT though, so choose wisely.

What should Kip do?
>>
No. 860907 ID: 13fded

Remember that telekinetic outburst you had against the monster? This would be a great time to do that again.

Artie will resent you if you mess with his memory and you cant let him leave without looking him over for signs of the infection, so the best you can do is take control of the situation.

Get in combat, but nonlethal. What I would like you to do, if you can, is to keep Artie at a safe distance pushing him when he try to approach, assume your combat form if you feel its appropriate. Also use your telekinesis to take the gun, not to use it, just for additional intimidation and to prevent him from taking it.

Before you do any kind of telekinetics directed at Artie, you must force his hand open first, or you risk pushing him away with the pendant! A jab to the back of the hand with a pen should do the trick.

No. 860911 ID: cc5f4f

Quick. Do some spell dohickey. Like, maybe confuse him. Make him think like there's a bright light blinding him. I feel like this is pretty cruel, but its the last brutal I can think, and should make him flinch.

No. 860913 ID: 4cf31e

Ah crap. Use a MIND-SHOCK spell (if you know one) and it might make him FLINCH, releasing the pendant. Then push him and PIN him to the ground with telekinesis.
"What the hell Artie! I'm doing my best to help you and you pull this on me? Listen, i'm your best fucking chance of leaving this hellhole alive, and i really want to help you escape, but you gotta cooperate!"
If he's still hostile after this, tear his gun apart.

He never grabbed the gun. Point it at him and force him to stop or claim to shoot. If he starts rambling about how your too nice to shoot than he's obviously pretty evil or dedicated enough to be that pragmatic.

Can the pup help you with that distraction spell?

I don't think you can win in close combat.
That other Pendant exists still and worst case scenario you could bluff and say you can trigger it and both of you would die, or something like that.

I don't think we can really help you in close quarters combat, our suggestions can only be strategic level and can't adapt in time during fast fighting. This would be fine if you had experience in close quarters... but umm... yeah.

>Remember that telekinetic outburst you had against the monster? This would be a great time to do that again.
It doesn’t work that way. Kip got the telekinetic outburst in the other room out of PAIN. As much as he’s in complete despair right now, poor sweet Kip can’t pull off another outburst willingly. He still finds your idea very clever nonetheless.
>Artie will resent you if you mess with his memory and you cant let him leave without looking him over for signs of the infection, so the best you can do is take control of the situation.
Don’t worry, leaving this facility is not gonna be easy for an earthling. Kip shut all the doors he went through when he broke in. He may not be a top tier agent, but he knows enough to not leave any obvious clues of his presence. Artie will have a long way before he can break out.
>Get in combat, but nonlethal. What I would like you to do, if you can, is to keep Artie at a safe distance pushing him when he try to approach, assume your combat form if you feel its appropriate.

Kip is afraid his combat form will NOT be enough to beat Artie’s strong physique in a fight still. Your ideas are pretty clever regardless though. He could try to pick up the gun, but it’d be risky; if Artie gets his hands on it, he’ll be dead. It’s better not to risk it. Though Kip WILL take your tips into consideration in future fights!

>>861615
>Can the pup help you with that distraction spell?
Sadly, no. Woof cannot help Kip when under the distraction spell. The spell puts him in an almost daydream-like state; he’s unaware of his surroundings, and Kip doesn’t wanna break the spell. If anything happens, he just wants Woof to stay in peace.

>>860910
>Before you do any kind of telekinetics directed at Artie, you must force his hand open first, or you risk pushing him away with the pendant! A jab to the back of the hand with a pen should do the trick.
You’re right. It’s good to be cautious. Artie is gripping the pendant really tightly. It doesn’t feel like he’d let go easily.

Kip tries to stab the fox with the BROKEN GLASS PIECE, but the fox gets grip of Kip’s right hand before he can attack. He’d rather NOT risk it one more time.
Yet, gladly, the fox’s grasp on the pendant seems to have gotten weaker, out of the surprise and effort from the fox to stop Kip’s physical attack. He has around a fraction of a second to act.

>>860911
>Quick. Do some spell dohickey. Like, maybe confuse him. Make him think like there's a bright light blinding him. I feel like this is pretty cruel, but its the last brutal I can think, and should make him flinch.
Kip knows a confusion spell similar to this, but it isn’t a nice spell at all. There’s a reason why Kip isn’t okay with using MIND SPELLS, specially of THIS kind. But he has no choice right now, does he? Cruel or not, it’s his only way out.


Kip closes his eyes.

The Keothera’s pendant glows even brighter as Kip holds his fragile and shaky hand in front of the ferocious fox’s forehead.

Kip is very sorry.

Kip takes some distance. The spell won’t hold the fox for long. He’s already tried to talk to him and failed miserably. Leaving quickly is his best chance of survival.

Kip noticed the fox’s breath reeked of starvation when he hugged him. He takes out a SNACKBAR from his FOOD INVENTORY and carefully places it over the table in a place that would be easy to see. The cat hopes the fox will forgive him someday.

He doesn’t take the GUN either. It’s Artie’s only weapon, taking it away would be rather cruel; and Kip doesn’t really need it much either.

You have to release Wolf from the confusion. It was fine to keep him quiet during a confrontation he couldn't contribute in any way and we had no reason to believe he would be target, but now that you are on the move the spell will make him vulnerable and completely dependent on you. Is it worth to spare his sensibilities if that increases the risk of getting him killed?
>>
No. 862297 ID: 4cf31e

>>862291 You could also swap the distraction spell for a minor one that just filters out the red color so he doesn't get scared by all the blood.
When you reach S1, tap a random button before leaving so if Artie tries to chase you, he'll think you went somewhere else.
