Episode Nine - Part Two


Jade: "My poor Erebus- so quiet!"

Andy: "Anything new to report, Jade?"
Jade: "Erebus regained consciousness tonight around sunset, just as predicted. The new strain had a few unexpected side effects, such as the strange skin tone and an apparent lack of vocalization."
Andy: "You named him?"
Jade: "Of course!"
Andy: "Anything else?"

Jade: "Glass thinks he may be capable of telepathic abilities, just not with us. This is a huge leap- if we can localize the part of the virus which caused this, we'll be sure to include it in the final, erm, product."
Andy: "What about the sensitivity to sunlight?"

Jade: "Unfortunatly, Erebus still displays the catastrophic reaction to direct sunlight. I've been working on new plantings to deal with that, however. I won't let you down, sir."
Andy: "No, you won't."

Andy: "Xero? I thought I hired you as a mathematician. Why are you playing with that corpse?"

Xero: "Mr. Blue wasn't finished working out the problem I gave him when Glass killed him. I was hoping to put him back together again, but things aren't working quite right. I think he's been hexed."

Andy: "And what of the problem I gave you to work on last week?"
Xero: "It's perplexing, to say the least. The numbers- they hide the answer from me in such a mocking way!"

Glass: "You won't find the answer to your question in numbers, sir. There's clearly a metaphysical interaction at play here."

Glass: "To become more than what you start with, you have to pull in energies from all around, not just from the original source."

Glass: "Jade's plants, Xero's numbers- they'll unlock some of the secrets you want. It's only through my work on the other aspects of the virus are you going to get what you really want- to be exponentially better than the source."

Glass: "I suspect 'Erebus' has telepathic abilities based on energy waves I picked up on just after he woke up. I'm nearly positive I can isolate the part of the virus that created this ability."
Andy: "This is the best news I've heard all night. You're doing fantastic work, Glass."
Glass: "Thank you, sir."

Jade: "Oh! Mr. Stone, you're in luck! It's Lupita's feeding time! Would you like to watch?"

Jade: "Glass, give me access to holding cell number 2!"

Jade: "Don't cry, little boy. Your death will help secure the future of a truly great man!"

Jade: "Good girl! Such a sweet thing you are, Lupita!"
Andy: "You think the secret to overcoming sunlight lies in a man-eating cowplant named Lupita?"
Jade: "I'm sure of it! She feeds on the blood in the bodies she ingests, excreting the solid remains after about 6 hours. As a plant she uses the sunlight during photosynthesis- the blood of her victims insures her of immortality, just as the vampires you wish to emulate. This particular plant is over 4000 years old!"
Andy: "Quite impressive."

Andy: "Keep me informed of any further progress with the latest experiments. I'll check in with you all again next week, keep up the good work."

May I say again how much I love the settings and the story? I don't comment very often for fear of running out of adjectives, but rest assured, I read your updates. ;)

Ok, this has to be the most visually stunning chapter so far - the setting is mindblowing! I can't believe some of the stuff you've been able to find!

Me either!! It means that there are other people out there who are just as twisted as I am, though! Whoo! ^_^

Erebus, do happen to know where you downloaded his skintone from or the clothes too? I can't find him on MTS2.

The skintone and clothes both ship with the game (i think), you just need the boolprop cheat to get to them

(ctrl shift c then type boolprop testingcheatsenabledtrue in the box.) Do this in the neighborhood menu. Then go into Create A Sim and press Shift N. Then it will be in "debug" and those will show up. Make sure you turn off the boolprop cheat after you're done,(boolprop testingcheatsenabledfalse) though, or else your game might get screwed up.

A bit of sci-fi action here. Awesome pictures and detaling.
