Floor 28-Now this is more like it Time- 45562

Image

Liu's Log: Floor 27. I encountered an aggressive Liirian presence- a different persona from the Swimmers I'd been forced to duel before. In the previous Liir, one could sense that they knew something terrible had happened to them. A corner of the mind reacting in horror at the things they were doing, longing for escape.

This Liir was different. This Liir had nothing of mercy or empathy left within. If I had not seen the body inhabited by this mind I would never have thought it a Liir at all. Icy. Something had transformed that swimmer beyond recognition.

And now I have a new fear to contend with... If I remain here long enough, will the same thing happen to me?

Equipment Addendum: Two new weapon systems. A rocket launcher that fires projectiles akin to what the Tarkan Males have been using, and an unwieldy Morrigi laser rifle. Surprisingly, the Morrigi weapon has poorer armor penetration than my Sol Force pistol! Perhaps its time in storage damaged it beyond my ability to understand. However, if possible, I will take it back for SolForce R & D- its energy efficiency mechanisms remain remarkable.

Floor 30- Never been this deep on Seriously before! Time- 49801

Liu's Log: Floor 28 and 29. From one Liirian extreme to another. I found a Liir inside of a stasis chamber who was still sane. The technology is very effective, as I sensed nothing of the Liir's presence until the stasis field fully deactivated. I was actually expecting some cuts of meat. He agreed to join me.

Sadly, he proved unable to use his psionics after awakening, and proved overconfident with his-oddly human in origin- laser pistol. He didn't make it out of the room I found him in.

I also had my closest brush with death to date. Again, a Liir was involved. I coopted a Cyberbear, and unwisely triggered its fusion armaments in the ladder room. While somewhat effective in clearing out my opponents, it was NOISY. I was unable to efficiently deal with the ensuing onslaught of creatures, and began taking hits. Many hits.

When the Corrupted Liir entered the fray I was already streaming blood and mentally drained. I tried to reach into its mind and lock down its nervous system, but was too weak. In the end, some 14 doses of Nanomeds were needed to keep me alive, along with- appropriately Liirian- mental restoratives. I don't know how many more floors lay between me and my goal, but I used roughly 20% of my accumulated medical reserves. I must do better, or perish.

[Ed Note: Yeah, I won't be using puppet in the ladder room on a Cyberbear again.]

Equipment Addendum: Explosions from 'nades and rockets inflicted critical damage to my adamantium blade and laser pistol. Both had to be resotred with Nano-reconstructors, though the pistol cannot sustain many more such repairs. An armor mod was located, but analysis revealed it would damage the integrity of my armor. It was destroyed, lest someone else follow in my footsteps.

[ Ed- The goodwill, I can just feel it flowing from you! I mean, is he talking about the "lil Liir" who died in the same room he was freed from? Or the "lil Corrupted Liir" who was integral in my brush with death? Questions, questions... ]

Floor 35- An Unknown Agent and some Pack Leaders walk into a bar... Time- 60162

Liu's Log: Floor 30ish. My recollections are... hazy. My body is still adjusting to the two Aug Bay procedures I've underwent. After having seen the marvels of this place, I was compelled to tinker. Why not tinker? Are we not masters of the stuff of life if we assume the mantle?

I hunger for mundane sustenance less, and am more resistant to the attacks of the inhabitants. Or the failed experiments, as I have come to regard them.

Equipment Addendum: I discarded my EZ Cooker. I hunger less anyway, and can use my mind to tap energy from elsewhere if I choose. I met an unknown agent, who proved to be but a shell for some... other entity. While I welcomed the pistol the shell left behing, my encounter with the possessing force sapped my mental reserves. I think I was able to force it to retreat. Perhaps it simply became bored.

There is still an echo of its presence in the back of my mind, speaking in a language I cannot understand. I shall not meditate on the encounter.

[Yep. Couldn't resist, and took 1 quoit shot that permanently melted some of my armor value. And for what? Well.... The Blood of the Eldest remains unfound!]

Nice pull from that room: A vorpal sword, a force field belt, nanomeds, a master kit and AM Cells.

The pit teases me, and then apologizes...
