Emry sees no other stick present, besides the garden hoe she is already using for fishing. Unless she converts one of the traps, perhaps into a fishing device.

Rats, the lead doppelganger is escaping! Snowball quickly builds a makeshift bridge over the well out of dirt and rocks and starts tunneling leftwards and downwards after it, trying to avoid digging a hole through the bottom of the well.

RE: Project D.O.R.F.
[GM note: I guess ordering will be a Big Action like Mining, leaving time for a small action, instead of being a full turn action. This still means you can just perform two tests on the lobsters this turn, as a small action.]

Ordering underway! Anyone else needs anything else?

Orders: Polto: Containment parts (much stronger than generic parts regarding making doors, cages, portcullis, forcefields, etc, but can only be used for Devices Of Containment, unless you recycle them, or tweak them a bit), x3, costs 3 Supply points.

Current supply points: Emry: 3.5, Nelor: 4.5, Snowball: 4.5, Polto: 3.5
Supply shuttle: empty
Next shipment: 3x large rolls of Nanofiber Wallpaper, 10 generic parts

Snowball hands Polto a crumpled piece of notebook paper. On the page is a poorly drawn image of Snowball holding a gigantic drill and using it to destroy an army of smaller evil lobster-shaped Snowballs.

Below that is another lovely drawing of Snowball strapping a bunch of dynamite to a spaceship followed by an arrow pointing to a mushroom cloud.

At the bottom is a barely legible scribble that just reads "thanks Potlo".

Emry's plants seem to have grown a bit. Maybe they bear fruit soon!

Nelor has made a STRANGE DRILL. It is capable of drilling out an extra room while drilling, optional. It makes strange black fumes while drilling, though...

Snowball digs for tactical purposes. While digging, he finds what seems to be a combination of a small trumpet and a gun. There is another of those chiming jars nearby.

Emry turned one of the traps into a net, and uses it to fish out the other lobster. She also manages to fish out the scrap and coins Snowball threw in the well, which is promptly used by Polto for testing purposes.


Polto science report:
Subject #1: Cave lobster
Description: white albino, not blind, might be a shapeshifter
Test #1: Stabbed with strange scrap. The lobster is not happy, and pinches Polto! Its shell is not penetrated.

Test #2: Coin gently touching the lobster: this seems to shock it a bit, but it looks more confident.

Full list of last shipment:
Large rolls of Nanofiber Wallpaper x 3 [free] (in the colour of your choice! Makes a large section of a room have Protective Walls)
Generic parts x 10 [free]
Advanced Salvaging Kit x 1 [1 Nelor]
Containment Parts x 3 [3 Polto]
Battle drill parts x1 [1 Snowball] (use this upgrade a drill to be able to drill out an extra room per turn, and to act as a powerful weapon)
D-5 Explosives x3 [x3 Snowball] (inert until shocked by electricity)
Trap parts x2 [2 Emry] (very high tech traps)
Waffle Maker x1 [1 Emry] (comes with a cupboard of ingredients)

Snowball realizes that the doppelleader must have gotten away, and decides to return back to base with the new-found loot. Once there, Snowball quickly installs the new battle drill parts onto its own drill. Snowball makes a mental note to come up with a good name for the drill later.

Snowball then tries combining the small trumpet with the gun to create a BLUNDERBUSS. Snowball makes sure to leave the weapon behind with Polto and Emry, in case they need to protect themselves from shapeshifters, or maybe just for threatening the hostages with.

Snowball also takes a moment to wallpaper the farming room SKY BLUE, because everyone knows that plants are very dumb and can easily be fooled into thinking that they are actually outside.

Emry tends her precious plant babies and dumps the lobster into the cage. She then starts taming the lobsters (so they don't kill each other or get scared of her and the others).

Emry politely requests various tech-savvy people use the high tech-trap parts to make cooler traps because she is a SIMPLE KANGAROO FARMER. Animal friendship is her speciality anyway.

Snowball upgrades his drill! How terrifying. He then makes a few bullets, for the gun he put in Polto's hand. Polto notices that the gun doesn't actually have a chamber or anything, but is actually a tube with an open end. It does have a trigger somehow...

Looking at the new, skyblue wallpaper, Emry's plants are so happy that they have grown one (1) breadesque fruit based phenomena.

Emry has turned the lobsters into Slight Better Lobster. They have accepted her as their just and fair queen.

Polto has created a BEASTERJAIL, using up one containment part! It nicely covers up most of the room, at least, it provides protecting from burrowing. Polto also hears rushing water nearby. That pool might be actually a river. Polto also finds another of those strange humming jars.

Nelor digs to the left of the wreck... and below.... He finds a busted fishing rod.

Emry is like....oh my god, that's a breadfruit, I thought those were a thing of myth and legends, not unlike the beardfruit.

She takes the Breadfruit and seperates the fruit from the seed. She sends the flesh and seeds research.

She goes down and attempts to befriend the shapeshifter-lobster because clearly making friends will solve everything.

Polto goes back up and builds Polto's room a safehouse in case something attacks them in between the jail and the research table. Polto also adds some scrap metal to the shuttle, and is dismayed when the shuttle won't accept Polto as well.

Polto also builds ladders out of generic parts to help move between levels.

Snowballs digs deep, deep! And he can also sniff out... nearby caverns. The unmistakeable stench of deepwind... It is also getting a bit dark down there.

In total, Snowball and Polto use up two generic parts, creating plenty of ladders.

Polto unfold one of the roomtents! It is made of the same wall protecting material. It even has a light fixture, and connect to the life support and electricity grids! It also has one use of internal colour change in it.

Nelor, why are you hanging a newly fixed (and now cursed) fishing rod into a river in which scrap and coins react from time to time to make lightning. Stop that Nelor, you feel your non existing hair stand on end.

The (what must be the) true doppellobster peeks out, and Nelor think it chuckled.

Emry looks at the lobster! She decides this is not the shapeshifter lobster. Since it doesn't talk, she send it up the ship, along with the breadfruit and Polto's scrap.

MATERIALS RECEIVED
Small scrap metal sample: Rusty, really rusty +1p
Breadfruit: We are sure we didn't send a seed for this... +3p
Lobster: A mole lobster? Who stabbed this poor thing.... it is my pet now, and is called Molk. +10p


Floor countdown: 242 (four floors dug, total three floors new)
Current supply points: Emry: 16, Nelor: 19, Snowball: 16, Polto: 16
Supply shuttle: empty

Digging note: you can keep on digging, I won't draw every digging areas if you the shaft is really deep. Skipping midsections of shafts will be likely thing if multiple people dig in the same shaft with very fast tools. Or with automated drones.

"Mind if I try something?"

Nelor "borrowed" some of the spaghetti and hooked it on the cursed fishhook, while also insulating the handle with some rubber they probably had sitting around. That done, he cast it back into the pit, determined to catch something!

This was clearly the best use of his time.

Snowball FAST DIGS to the right! Looks like a green resin, surrounded by other blobs of resin. The cavern is covered in some sort of mushrooms, and small white spiders which float wile making flute noises.

Polto looks into the other cavern, and sees a large cylinder, making humming noises similar to the humming jars.

Emry has supplied a romantic date for the lobsters! It is an experience that they won't forget for some time (both the lobsters and Emry). A batch of lobster eggs is the result. The breadplant grows another fruit in admiraiton.

Long time after Nelor further fixed the fishing rod, a strage white blob, its skin glistening as if coated with rubber, pinches it claws on the hook! Could it be that the doppelganger.... grew protection from the electricity?

It is getting dark in the mines. Snowball has great sense of smell to move around, but lamps will be needed. Thankfully the lamp pile still have some leftover lamps.

Snowball is weary of the spiders, wondering if they might be more baby doppelgangers, but they don't seem to be aggressive, so Snowball decides to wait until they can get an expert animal wrangler's opinion.

Snowball heads back up the ladder to retrieve a lamp, but on the way they hear Nelor struggling with a doppelganger! Snowball bravely and stupidly leaps into action, clawing and drilling the evil beast all over.

Snowball is very annoyed at not being able to attack the doppelganger head on, but they do conceed the tactical advantages of not dying.

Instead, they decide to borrow a net trap from Emry and use that to help reel in the doppelganger. Snowball makes sure to rough the doppelganger up a bit on the way to its new jail cell.

Polto secures the area! There is one security part left.

Emry replants, deploys the waffle cooker, and makes some delicious Waffle Fruit. Eating it is a free action, and gives you an extra digging area or two small actions!

Nelor manages to lift out the doppelganger (how? dunno, but the fishing rod is making cursey smells...) and with the aid of Snowball, Emry's net and drills, who is not jumping into the electric pit they made, lock it into the Safety area.

Polto is terrified and stays into Polto's room (which is not a saferoom, but an inflatable tentroom, however, it is the safest because there are no cylinders there and lobstergangers there).

For now, though, he digs out the minerals in the back wall, and also digs a small room left of the shaft beneath the forge for his PERSONAL BEDROOM. Finally, he forges up some more lamps for future use.

Emry wrestles with the Doppelganger! In the lampless darkness, the wrestling ends with a tie.

Snowball managed to connect the resin area with the secure area, and puts up the last of the lamps. They also mine a large chunk of the resin.

The spiders flute around, confused by the light.

Polto goes to dig, but falls into doing SCIENCE!

Polto science log:
Subject: Resin
Experiment 1: Coins. The coins get stuck in the resin. Correction: they are stuck like magnets, not due to being gluelike.

Experiment 2: Scrap: The scrap bounces off the resin.

Experiment 3: Fire. It burns with a horrible stench.

Nelor digs about, taking another large chunk out of the wreck in the process, and uses a Generic Part to make two big rooms worth of lamps.

Roots dangle in the ceiling...

Beware, you might need to install new Dangerlocks, to protect the Soon To Exist Ore Processing Plant, and the Secure Holding Area!
