You decide not to split the groups up too much, and that when you decide to start going after drug dealers you all need to be ready as a group.

Fuse goes to deal with the wiring in Bunker D. Michelle accompanies him for protection, and you go with to see if you can get something blood-filled into the plant room. You have needles that can be animated, but you don't perceive very well through non-living containers--you may not learn much that way. On the other hand, you don't want to risk sending a rat or other animal in.

Dr. Finch goes into Bunker B. Caius accompanies him in case Dr. Finch needs someone to run for supplies, and so Caius can periodically step out and attempt to call Jury.

So, extremely crazy thought: what if we blooded our flower and sent that in? Ya it's got pretty much no senses but I'm hoping the fact it's something living counts more than something inanimate.
If it's technically dead at this point we can get a fresh, live flower.

Mainly I'm thinking if we can test a reaction with a blooded flower we can try going in ourselves if there's no reaction from the plants. Sorta like throwing shoes ahead to test for traps.

...huh. I wonder if that works? Plants are alive, but so far we've only blooded animals. We should experiment!

the problem there is plants don't really have senses as we understand them. they aren't sentient, they don't have brains. we might be able to manipulate a plant, but sensing through something without senses will probably just be the same as trying to sense through a syringe.

We really do need some kind of GoPro or something. Then we can stick it on our animated monstrosities and be able to see that way.

Does Fuse know where we can get one on the cheap? Maybe we can grab one once he's done with the wiring.

For now, did we ever get our hands on a telescoping pole and small mirror? We could do the adventurersy trick of mirror+pole to at least look around in the room a little bit :P

This could be a good time to experiment with blood, simple electronics, and using multiple blooded objects together.
Take a cheap camera, blood it, attach some blooded bandages for mobility.
If it works, we have ourselves a nice little blood golem to go poke around the room.
If not, we don't lose much in the process.

A little blood golem sounds useful if it works~

And potentially cute. XD

Also, stream should be starting up soon. Roommate made some adjustments to our setup, so it should be improved quality-wise.

Could we blood the plant?

If the blood plant is actually Mars blood, then injecting Jane's blood into it might cause the kind of reaction we can't quite handle? ^^;;;

Sorry you missed the stream.

If the blood in the vines is somehow connected to the Martian corpse (and let's be honest, there's no way it's not) then we probably don't want to send in any of our blood, who knows what kind of violent reaction it'll have to it
