[open] Let me play among the stars

When: The 18th
Where: The Orbital Tower
What: Explorations!
Warnings: If something comes up, please warn for it in your subject lines!

There has been word to the numbered that at 9:00am on the 18th (CET), a bus will pick up any numbered willing to have a look at the strange tower-building at the border. It will stop at Hotel Reutte as well as the parking lot at the lower end of the Pöllatschlucht Gorge and then drive any that have boarded out to the Orbital Tower.

The bus will be let through the fences that military and police put up and stop just outside the white walls. There, the driver will tell everyone to get out, and they will be met by Monika Hallbach and David Graibiger and one military officer of each of the involved countries. After a short introduction round, they will then lead the numbered into the structure. It is a large storage room housing a farm complete with two fields, a small pond and a number of cows grazing placently. The farmer will invite them into his kitchen and around the table, and with water or juice or milk in front of them, a few things will be taken care of.

> The numbered are supplied with passes that allow them to roam freely inside the structure.
> The farmer tells them how she woke up one morning and found herself, her farm and some of her fields inside a large white room. She seems pretty calm about the whole thing, with a mentality that shit happens and you gotta deal with it. She just wants the numbered to make sure that the whole thing is safe so they'll let non-residents into the structure - she wants to rent out her bed and breakfast rooms again.
> The four officials impress on the numbered, with a main emphasis on Eugen, that this is German and Austrian territory, and it is those countries' laws that are relevant in the whole structure, because it belongs to them. It is also explained that
> Everyone is given a walkie-talkie so they can connect to each other and all people stationed within the structure.

They are then let to their own devices.

[ooc: Below, threads with descriptions of what can be found will go up, one for each level. The thread for the second level will go up in a few days or once the elevator has been figured out ICly. Please direct all questions to the "ooc things" top level.

A note for the purpose of making the playing of stuff taking place after this log easier: There will be no violence in this log that is not initiated by numbered, and the only way for them to get themselves hurt will be echoes/their own stupidity/both.]

☑ An OOC thread for all your questions regarding what your character might know through their job, find when doing a certain thing, be able to figure out with their powers, etc.
☑ Everything that happens on the 18th before they are left to roam the structure on their own.
☑ Level 1
☑ Level 2

[There is one small military area on this level, but oddly enough the door with the "restricted" sign is unlocked and open, and someone has put a sign that reads "Please come in" on the door - further inspection will reveal that another person has added "free punch and pie" in pink and green glitter pen.]
peacefulwinter: (This doesn't make sense...)

[personal profile] peacefulwinter 2014-11-02 03:04 am (UTC)(link)
[Their inspection hadn't covered this entire level yet - it's not exactly a small structure - but this door is far, far too conspicuous not to investigate. Besides-]

I only know two humanoids that write in glitter pen, and Octavia isn't here. Lily... we have to take a closer look.
alilyinthemoonslight: (Yuri - Side eye)

[personal profile] alilyinthemoonslight 2014-11-02 03:16 am (UTC)(link)
[Lily is still sort of reeling from where they are when Winter brings her attention to it. That... is strange. Possibly a little alarming. They just got here themselves, and while it's not terribly out of the ordinary visitors from another would could easily hop up here through other means... what were they doing there? Words of warning from a newly discovered Numbered ring in her ears briefly, but it's not like they can just ignore it.

She gives a stiff nod, but moves to head past the door.]
I guess we can't not, huh?

[Under normal circumstances Lily might open up a door and be polite to let her girlfriend go ahead of her. Now, however, she steps forward a little defensively, attempting to head through first. Even if their visitors are harmless to them, this is an exceptionally odd occurrence.]
peacefulwinter: (I'll trust you.)

[personal profile] peacefulwinter 2014-11-02 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
[Stepping forward, Winter catches herself before she runs into Lily - she'd expected to walk in first, but that option's been taken from her at this particular moment, and she's puzzled for a second as Lily cuts in front of her. But she shakes her head and follows right behind. Nothing's going to go wrong. Right? It's just... well, hopefully it's their friendly neighborhood aliens. That's what the glitter pen suggests, at least.]
alilyinthemoonslight: (Yuri - you did what now)

[personal profile] alilyinthemoonslight 2014-11-02 03:45 am (UTC)(link)
[Lily notices that Winter almost runs up on her and gives her a slight, apologetic smile. Maybe she's not even conscious of what she's doing, but like hell she's going to let her walk into something clearly strange first if she can help it.

Then, cautiously she calls out:]

Is anyone there?

[personal profile] goldenbrother 2014-11-02 09:55 am (UTC)(link)
[There is another sign of similar make on the wall, pointing to a door that leads into the "mess", the word written over the entrance of the room in multiple languages.

If they enter, they step into a moderately sized galley, though it smells oddly of

...well. McDonalds. The sitting area of the galley loops down a bit, some of the lower tables out of view from where the young women stand, and the opposite wall is see-through: Another window to space.]
Edited 2014-11-02 09:56 (UTC)
alilyinthemoonslight: (Yuri - contemplative)

[personal profile] alilyinthemoonslight 2014-11-02 06:34 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lily sniffs the air as they do, indeed, enter. The distinct aroma of cheap fast food is definitely there, and she wrinkles her nose. For a moment, her vision lingers on the window. It's hard to believe they are where they are, but... The situation at hand is enough to actually get her to pry her eyes from it.]

...okay so either they carry McDonald's in space, or...

[personal profile] goldenbrother 2014-11-03 08:28 am (UTC)(link)
[The scent isn't equally strong everywhere; it's getting stronger if she moves down the galley and closer to the window. Engage?]
peacefulwinter: (Do you think so?)

[personal profile] peacefulwinter 2014-11-07 07:54 am (UTC)(link)
I know we live in an exciting time, but it's not so exciting that McDonald's is somehow in space before us. Still...

[It is a lovely view. She pauses to take it in as well, before sighing and peering toward the tables out of their view, let alone the strengthening scent of high-calorie burger.]

As much as I like the view, this is weird.
alilyinthemoonslight: (Yuri - frown)

[personal profile] alilyinthemoonslight 2014-11-08 05:02 am (UTC)(link)
[Almost unconsciously, Lily's turning her Precure Seed end over end in her fingers.]

"Weird" doesn't quite cut it. We've seen weird, this is...

[Creepy? Yes, more than a little. She moves further towards the smell, eyes darting all about.]

No, seriously. Is there someone in here?

[personal profile] goldenbrother 2014-11-09 08:38 am (UTC)(link)
[There is no answer, but the voices become louder, and if they have memorized the sound, they'll hear that it is Geoff and Badri. Going down further will lead them down to an area that is at the outer hull off the station, and here two men sit at a table right in front of one of the large windows, a number of Happy Meals (upon very close inspection they're from various countries) sitting on the table between them.

They are arguing in a language not English and seem to not have noticed them yet.]
alilyinthemoonslight: (Yuri - 092)

[personal profile] alilyinthemoonslight 2014-11-09 08:59 am (UTC)(link)
[Okay, well that's.. a new one. More than a little in fact - she holds out an arm to stop Winter's advance and makes herself as unseen and quiet as possible, saying nothing. She casts a glance back towards Winter to make sure the mirror she had been wearing to form a Network connection was still there and then turns her gaze back to what's going on. Down there.

Walking into an argument is rather rude, more so when you don't know what it's about, nor can you understand it or know what they might do.]
peacefulwinter: (I have reservations about this...)

[personal profile] peacefulwinter 2014-11-10 12:55 am (UTC)(link)
[Winter pauses as she's stopped by Lily; the sudden shift in tone doesn't go unnoticed, and she nods, glancing down at the mirror pinned on her jacket to make sure it's still "transmitting" before she turns her gaze to match Lily's.

Not that any of this makes sense. Kids meals in at least four languages she recognizes litter the table, and while she doesn't understand what they're saying, the aliens arguing is cause for concern. She'd never seen them like this... and as much as she wants to believe it'll be okay, as her mind automatically supplies, they can't both be right - this might not end well.

Leaning out over Lily's arm, but trying to stay hidden, Winter struggles to get a better view.]

buildyourworld: (How dare you)


[personal profile] buildyourworld 2014-11-03 03:56 am (UTC)(link)
[ To say he's displeased with Geoff's presence is a small understatement. How he manages to come all the way up here before them when the Orbital Elevator has been closed to the public further annoys him. The last thing he needs is for the local government to assume the Numbered has somehow broken their rule before any attempt of cooperation has been officially sanctioned. ]

How did you get up here? This place is off limit to anyone who're not in this official trip.

[personal profile] goldenbrother 2014-11-03 08:29 am (UTC)(link)
[There is no answer from behind the door.

Step in anyway?]
buildyourworld: (veda)

[personal profile] buildyourworld 2014-11-03 01:54 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Yeap, in fact he pretty much shoves the door open because of the lack of answer.

And the empty room simply annoys him even further. Who the hell sets up those food and beverages here? ]

Whoever it is, show yourself now.
calmelancholy: (Default)

[personal profile] calmelancholy 2014-11-04 09:27 pm (UTC)(link)
[Down a corridor and around the corner there are voices, but they are a good distance away - perhaps muffled by a door or two as well.

If he follows them, he will find Meredith leaning against the wall just around the corner and raise a hand (though not far) for a brief greeting. They look like they've been waiting on something or someone...

And must have heard Eugen's words and simply have decided to not answer.]
buildyourworld: (Explain yourself)

Taemin! <3

[personal profile] buildyourworld 2014-11-06 02:39 pm (UTC)(link)
[ He approaches the source of the voices he heard, growing increasingly annoyed. The officers with him are equally annoyed with the lack of protocol and the general breach of Restricted Area.

Recognizing them from the alien broadcast, Eugen directs his glare at the one with raised hand. ]
How did you get in here?
calmelancholy: (oi)

Indeed >D

[personal profile] calmelancholy 2014-11-07 12:31 pm (UTC)(link)
I stepped out for a moment to not have to hear them blathering on about your peoples' national cuisine.

[He jerks his thumb over his shoulder, down the corridor to a sign that reads "galley" in various languages.]

buildyourworld: (I'll handle it)


[personal profile] buildyourworld 2014-11-09 08:20 am (UTC)(link)
[ He raises a brow at the national cuisine comment, but decide not to comment on it. German foods is tasty and fantastic as far as Eugen is concern anyway. Instead, he's more interested in the galley the guy mentioned. Also his name because Eugen sure as hell doesn't remember it. ]

We came up with the linear train. You do realized that this entire tower has been declared as a Restricted Area? I'll ask for you and your friends to refrain from entering again without permission. The local government has been kind and accommodating, the last thing we want is to violates their sovereignty.
calmelancholy: (over my shoulder)

[personal profile] calmelancholy 2014-11-09 08:35 am (UTC)(link)
Geoff is the one so intensely worried about your people's sensibilities. You should tell him.

[A shrug.] This is probably out of their jurisdiction anyway; too high up. You people haven't quite gotten the hang of property in space yet.
buildyourworld: (Explain then.)

[personal profile] buildyourworld 2014-11-09 08:52 am (UTC)(link)
I will, and your name?

[ Have a frown, alien dude. Because Eugen happens to know just how far in space the Orbital Tower is. ] This is still within Earth's atmosphere and technically, in German's airspace. Don't assume none of us know how to measure space distance.
calmelancholy: (over my shoulder)

[personal profile] calmelancholy 2014-11-09 10:01 am (UTC)(link)
You wouldn't be able to pronounce it. But you can call me Meredith Chownyk.

[Looking at Eugen, a bit down their nose.]

And do you know about it because you're from here?
Edited 2014-11-09 10:01 (UTC)
buildyourworld: (looks down at)

[personal profile] buildyourworld 2014-11-30 02:08 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Sorry to disappoint your lack of tact, but here's Eugen pronouncing the name correctly. ] Meredith Chownyk, I'm Eugen Lambert.

[ That look gets a similar one in return. He has no problem shooting dirty looks if he wants to. ]

There's plenty of people on Earth who knows how to measure the airspace. We do have our own space technology even if it's not as advance as yours.

[ Unknown alien doesn't need to know that Eugen kinda own this Orbital Elevator, if they want to be technical about it since it is echoed from his world. ]
calmelancholy: (sound of silence)

[personal profile] calmelancholy 2014-12-02 09:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, I know. You can send tiny robots to relatively close-by celestial bodies to take pictures and gather a bit of mud.

[A shrug.]

We are, however, not claiming this place, so no worries there.
