    "Horrible?", Arc smiled at Zestari,"113 was not a horrible place, it was home. The actions taken within were horrible, but the place was just set where it took place."

    "But yes, the layout is reminding me of my time in the maintenance and life support parts of 113, i spent my days in similar dark corridors, sometimes, when some more extensive repair was needed i have not seen a living soul in days. I honestly miss those times."

    "And i do believe that also answers your question.", Arc said in Dashe's direction,"Some parts of the stable looked like this, and some were even more cramped and dark, you often had to navigate by your ears and hooves only."

    Mona gave an affirmitave nod to Kes, but before she got into line, there was one extra thing she had to do...
    Walking over to the locker, she levitated the two remaining machetes, and affixed them to her side. She could easily use one of the sharp instruments, and a back-up for anypony needing a melee weapon would be handy.

    With that move, she got into position behind the group, unstrapped her loaned hunting rifle, and levitated it at her side, keeping the weapon ready in case anything came at them. No telling what was waiting down here.

    Kes looked over his group, and gave a final silent nod before pressing on out into the room beyond the Transport. He was careful in his movements, eyes scanning the walls and shadows for even the slightest movement.

    His rifle and revolver were loaded and ready to go at a moments notice should anything dare attack the group.

    Kestrel was confident that if the group listened to him and didn't panic they would be fine. It was up to them to follow that unspoken order though, and if they failed to do so there would be hell to pay.

    "Oooh," Zestari said intently listening to Arc. What a fascinating place to live it must have been, and she spent a moment wondering whether she would have been able to live in such a cramped confined place.

    As Kestrel nodded at the group and then moved down the corridor, Zestari and the rest of the group followed the griffon in their designated positions. Rather than ahead, Zestari's eyes were fixated on the walls, ceiling and floor; this journey had gone from horrifying underwater nightmare to interesting stable living experience.

    Normally she would have been much more cautious or careful, but lost in curiosity, she didn't notice Kestrels quiet, sleek, stalking pose. "Was working on the stable difficult?" she asked Arc, peering up towards a mess of pipes and hoses, jutting precariously from a wall.

    Dash listened to the others talk about life in Stables, he had heard that they were built underground, and from the descriptions he heard, they sounded like dismal places to live, by his standards anyways. Personally, even with the cloud layer, Dash felt that he wouldn't be able to live without light from the sky reaching him for years on end. He wouldn't have ever found his special talent had he lived out his entire life in a Stable. However, he did not engage in the conversation farther as they began moving. He instead gave as much concentration as he could into the task Kestrel had given him.

    As the group crawled through the scattered hallways, steam hissed out at random intervals, and the shadows began to creep as the light flickered out...

    Making it halfway through...the team reached halfway through without any trouble or signs of ill intentions, they managed to reach a 4-way split in the tunnels and the final stretch to the stairway was just ahead of them

    But then the music began....



    ...and the laughter of several voices coming from every direction grew louder.

    Every light within view turned off except for the one above the group....but it was horribly dim and prone to flickering, barely illuminating 10 feet in any of the 4 pathways...

    Blazen's eyes grew wide as he guessed what was about to happen. He quickly went inside his pouch, pulled out his 9mm, and looked around. "I think we have trouble!" Blazen said, squinting his eyes and looking down the hallways, but since there was no light he couldn't see. Nonetheless, he prepared himself.

    Dae readied his massive claws. He looked at Blazen.

    "What do you see? I have the worst eye sight."

    Dae squinted his eyes at the darkness but failed to see anything. He began growling quietly to himself.

    "Circle up." Kes rumbled out already backing up and drawing his rifle, he did not like this. He was unfazed by the inherent creepiness of the situation but that did not mean Kestrel liked it.

    He had his head on a swivel and his ears perked, the first sign of movement in the dark and the Gryphon would fire his sniper rifle without hesitation.

    As he scanned the darkness for any movement Kestrel began to go over what the pony from before had said.

    "Head down the hall and make a left..."
    he had said. Well to bad that he forgot to mention this little issue. One would think that telling your taskforce that there is a possibility of attack was a good idea.

    Kes would need to remind the Doctor of that next time they chatted.

    "Mona, can you light things up?" Kes asked, his voice just as dead calm as it usually was. If the unicorn mare could cast Light the group could start progressing again.

    Dash's stomach knotted up as the music and laughter began from the darkness. Hearing Kestrel's order, he took up a position in the formation looking down the path to the back of the group. He forced his jaw to stop chattering his teeth slightly to clench his teeth around the mouthgrip of his 9mm pistol and drew it out from its holster on his vest. He took several deep breaths to calm himself as he waited. He redirected his ears here and there to try to pinpoint exactly where the voices and music were coming from, but he couldn't with all the echoes in the hallways, "Meadowsong... Leafrun..." Dash whispered to himself, then narrowed his eyes, steeling up his courage.

    The smiles and curious glances of Zestari's towards the walls slowly lessened the further the group made it through the corridors. Broken and flickering lights kept making her think she saw things. Things that moved; and the melancholy of damaged and rusting rooms began to take their toll. She missed Happy.

    Then the music started, crackling through old and mouldy speakers, which put her on edge, her eyes wide. Following the ecstatic crescendo of music, the lights flickered and died, all save one overhead and she stood there slightly quivering in fear; demented, cackling voices coming from beyond her sight in the darkness.

    Circle up? Zestari stepped forwards shoulder-to-shoulder with another pony, and drew her pistol. Remembering to switch the safety off, she nervously pointed it at shifting shadows as the voices continued their insane ramblings and laughter.

    "Kes, what do we do?" she implored turning her eyes slightly towards the griffon, wanting more instruction than just 'Circle up'.

    "Keep your eyes peeled and your backs to one another, Arc, Zestari your in the middle." Kes ordered not taking his eyes off the shadows for a second.

    Hopefully Mona would be able to kick up a light soon. It would be quite useful right about now.

    The second the lights turned off, Mona had her rifle scope up to her eye as she spun around and backed up, keeping the rear tunnel in her sights as she watched for even the slightest sign of movement. She quickly circled up with the rest of the group her sight never wavering as she guarded one tunnel.

    When Kes asked her if she could illuminate the area, she quickly responded. Her head not turning an inch as she watched.

    "I'm not very magical, but I can do that."
    She said, before focusing her magic into the tip of her horn, as a light broke through part of the darkness, Mona's horn now emitting a light akin to a flashlight.

    Kes grunted and then called out another order.

    "Keep tight, backs to one another, we're moving. Mona keep our rear lit up."

    His orders given Kes reached down and turned on the light on his Pipbuck, the dull light illuminated the hallway before the group just a bit. it wasn't ideal, but it would do.

    And then, calmly and carefully Kes began to move, his eyes still scanning for anything in the blackness.

    Amity had his katana firmly in his mouth as his eyes and ears constantly scanned the darkness. He had distinctly remembered a similar situation he trained for back in his old days. And although this was still looking a bit bad, he smirked to himself. At least things were getting a bit more familiar.

    But now was not the time for those thoughts. Now he had to focus on staying alert and keeping the rest of the team aware of what may be coming for them.

    Zestari continued to stand there, her pistol at the ready, her ears twitching at every sound. Muscles tight, her jaw set, and her eyes still flicking around. She heard Kestrel order her and Arc to get in the middle of the group. She gave the slightest nod of her head and stepped back, the gap was closed by ponies far better at this sort of thing than her.

    There was a slight rush of relief as she moved backwards, as well as a slight sense of sadness that she'd failed some sort of unspoken test with Kestrel. Hopefully she would have a chance to redeem herself later on; she just didn’t like the unknown things lurking amongst the darkness.

    The group started moving, and Zestari kept her gun lowered, her eyes scanning the shadows carefully for obvious movement.

    The music pounded through the pipes, however Mona managed to get a light up just in time down her tunnel and she got a good view of 2 distorted barely equine creatures charging down the tunnel waving what appeared to be blunt objects.

    Two other tunnels had running hoofsteps in them, but could not be seen at that moment....

    A loud rasping sound filled an area behind the pipes nearby.....

    Dash only moved his eyes to the others as Kestrel told them that they were going to move, but maintain formation. He began back trotting as they began moving once again. Although they were out of the 4-way intersection and had fewer angles to be attacked from, it also meant that they had fewer options for potential escape. He kept his pistol trained on the path behind them, trusting some pony else to tell him if he were about to back into a wall or railing or something else. His heart thumped furiously as they continued, the knowledge that he wasn't alone down here was comforting enough to keep him out out of full-on fear. But this place seemed like one of those places that regular Wastelanders never returned from if they went in.

    As if a nightmare, Dash had yet to have about this place, came to life before his very eyes, Mona's light spell came to life to reveal two twisted horrors waving what looked like bludgeons. Dah had no idea what they were, possibly ghouls, but Dash had never seen very many up close, and the darkness and strange shadows and lighting wasn't helping, "Shit! Contact!" Dash yelped and then took aim at the left creature, jamming his tounge on the trigger.

    Kes perked immediately at the sound of hoofsteps, and he turned violently at the sound of gunfire. Already his powerful rifle was seated tightly into his shoulder and his eye was glued to the scope.
    He probably should have had some kind of major reaction to the two incoming...things. But he didn't.

    No Kes just blinked his eyes to re-wet them and then started applying pressure to the trigger. just before he pulled it completely and sent hot lead flying towards the splicers, he gave the group another order.

    "Open fire."

    The gryphon then fired his rifle twice, each shot aimed at the incoming abominations' chests.

    (Gun 100, firing twice and aiming to hit each splicer in the chest.)

    The second the two figures came into sight from the glow of light, Mona didn't hesitate. They were clearly armed, and they were coming straight for them. She raised the scope of her hunting rifle and aimed, before letting off a shot at the closest one. With that, she would quickly refocus her sights on the other, and try to get another shot off at the other pony-like creature.

    Blazen, as soon as the light was up, seen two beings that were not ponies. They were too deformed, too un-godlike. He then heard a few things in the other direction: there was more! They were probably about to be attacked from nearly every direction. "Heads up." He said, and aimed his pistol, firing at the crazies that were daring to attack.

    Zestari took a step backwards as the horrible figures peeled out of the darkness. "What the hay?!" She squeaked, bringing the pistol up, but then paused, the others in the group, Galactic, Mona, Kes and Blazen, were blocking her shots towards the two running towards them, so she hesitated and with the pistol grip quivering in her mouth, faced the direction of the pipes where only the sound of rasping and grinding could be heard, she was ready to fire at anything that would show itself.

    Actions:

    Ready firearm to fire at anything coming from behind those pipes.

    There was no question as the targets the 2 ghoulish looking figures charged the group, they didn't even hit the floor as their bodies were obliterated in a hail of bullets, bones, and gore, however, in turning their attention to Mona's hallway, only Zestari had taken into account the pipes, and the other two directions.

    Screaming, two splicers lept out of the darkness wielding pipes and wrenches from the other two hallways. leaving a total 4 splicers within melee distance...

    Zestari, focusing on the pipes, opened fire at a nimble ape-like ghoul that was wailing and riding on the pipes with what appeared to be fish hooks.

    *BAM* a lucky shot caused the spider splicer's left wrist to rip, however, none of the other shots hit home. The creature seemed like it would fall, but not before making a leap onto Kes's back and jamming the one fish hook she had in her right hoofhand around Kes's neck and into his left shoulder, digging into the muscle.


    Splicer #1 attacks: Dae, hits him in the stomach with a wrench but misses after that
    Splicer #2 attacks: Blazen, slammed against the wall with a pipe, drops gun, nose bleeding
    Splicer #3 attacks: GalaticDash, misses
    Splicer #4 attacks: Amber, bringing up the wrench to swing, the splicer gets a lucky blow on Amber, completely dazing whatever sense of equilibrium and sight he had

    Notes:
    -Spider Splicer latched on Kes
    -2 splicers from one hallway attacking Dae and Blazen
    -2 splicers from another attacking Dash and Amber
    -Blazen dropped his weapon
    -Amber is dazed

    Amity reeled over as he tried to dodge the swing, but the ungodly creature landed a lucky blow on him sending him reeling back. He would of blocked the hit though his sword was not made to block with the front edge and he did not have enough time to spin it to the mune. As the creature finished his swing, Amity was knocked back on the floor as he desperately tried to regain his balance. Slowly getting up to his hooves, the world was still spinning around him and the katana was drooping a bit in his mouth. But Amity stood a little shakily as he tried to regain his balance.

    This was a bit of a set back, but nothing he couldn't handle.

    9mm pistol Mag (10/37)

    Dash blinked as the first two charging splicers were literally annihilated by their opening volley. There was not a single hope or prayer for them in the universe. Then everything went to Tartarus. Dash watched the pony closest to him, Amber, fall dazed. Not only that, but he saw a blunt force object swing at him from yet another splicer. Dash reeled back just enough for the weapon to miss him. Things needed to get under control again, like... now! Dash took aim and prepared to fire once again.
