You mentally message the people on Mars, and tell them you'll be out for a little while. You ask Mom's red if it has any requests, or advice, or...

"You have made substantial progress," the mouth says. "More than I believed someone half human truly could... and you've done so, in part, because of your humanity. You took what many would have considered a flaw and made it one of your greatest strengths, such that higher beings are taking notice. I..." the mouth pauses, as though it can't quite find the words. "I want you to know that what you have done is significant, in many ways, and I believe you are far from finished surprising everyone. ...Myself included."

...Wow. Alright.

"Good luck," Baby Red adds. "Be okay."

You send your raven at the church of Enyo to the hospital.

Caius steps outside to call Jury, and give her a heads up. Michelle steps outside to call Cam.

You load up your needle gun, Michelle's minigun, and the bone armor into duffel bags. Caius has a handgun and a machete, and you have a first aid kit. There's a shotgun in the hummer.

After Jury and Cam have been informed and you've scouted the area out around the hospital, you all start loading up the gear. You take a moment to make yourself a helmet in the red, and put it in one of the duffel bags as well.

You have your raven scout out a place to park the hummer--somewhere nearby, but somewhere relatively out of sight.

It's not long after that you check on Fuse, Dr. Finch, and Elizabeth.

"We're good," Fuse says. "Lemme know when you're ready."

You, Michelle, and Caius head to the hospital.

Cam greets you at the door.

"Hey," she says. "The fourth floor's clear. No one's up there. It's been a while since we got weird, so we're due. Nobody should be calling the po-po."

"Got weird...?," Michelle wonders aloud.

"Remember who owned this hospital," Caius chuckles. "Still might, I dunno. They prob'ly seen some shit here, used to keepin' it under wraps."

Cam looks from Michelle to Caius, back to Michelle. "Is... that your...?"

Michelle seems confused by the question, but Caius immediately answers. "Nah, she's gay."

"Caius!," Michelle exclaims.

Caius shrugs. "S'true. Find me one lab meat that's straight, I'll give ya a dollar."

"Deal," Cam replies.

"Now is not the time," Michelle huffs. "C'mon, we got..." her voice lowers, almost to incoherent grumbling, "work to do."

Cam smiles, politely stepping out of the way.

Welp. I suspected that Michelle had a Thing for Blondie (and Caius for Finch) but this makes it straight up canon. Nice.

yeah you have CLEARLY missed all of the shipping I've been yelling about in the comments section. I'm not as certain about Blondie and Michelle (if only because I'm not sure how healthy a relationship it would be?? idk Michelle tends to put Jane on a bit of a pedestal and that really worries me.) but CaiusxFinch (to me at least) is a go. Cam totally has a thing for Michelle though. It's great!

I mean, it had to come out at some point if the U.S.S. Cachem is ever going to set sail. ;)

Unload the biopaste from the other printers then head to the 4th floor. We don't want to have to protect the entire hospital from bio-monsters.

Otherwise, get prepped and then give Fuse the signal... or mind-tell him you're ready. However it works. Don't forget the sync if that's not already in place.

All abound the S.S. Buffpink. :V

Remove extra biopaste and give Fuse the signal.

Sync with Liz and equip the armour.

Caius, with all the subtlety of a dump truck.

Well, let's go secure the printer room, maybe disable some security cameras (or set them to loop) while we're at it.

Unfortunately for Cam, even if Caius is correct, I think Michelle might have a thing for some other nurse.(even if she's not ready to come out and say it)

Anyway, if all the preparations are complete sync up, armour up and let's get this shitshow started.

The comic evolved from a thriller/survival horror game with inventory desc. into a complex tale of meta-magic, corruption and A CUDDLY NURSE WITH BLOOD POWERS.

Pull the bio paste from all the printers. Ask Cam if they have a procedure or something so it can look like a drill or somesuch.

Take samples for Dr finch to analyse later. Don't contaminate the stock. Take samples from every machine we touch, both paste and printed would be best, like a small blood sample.

Plug in the software and light this party up.

-Let's disable the security cameras.
-Don't disable the others bioprinters. The Point of coming in person to the hospital is to distract the enemy. If they have nothing to Attack the people in the hospital, they are going to put all of their time in Counter-hacking. We NEED monsters coming after us to make this plan a success. But tell everyone to close their doors and don't come out until everything ended. We don't want unnecesary victims.
-Let's go to the fourth floor. Put Caius supervising the room with the Bioprinter, and Michelle and Blondie the stairs and other ways the monsters are going to come from other floors.
-Everyone need's to take their weapons and armor in the fourth floor before everything Starts.
-Tell Michelle that you thinks that she and Cam can be a good couple, but she needs to concéntrate in the Battle against Thale. It's not a good idea to let Cam in until we end all of this madness. After that, everyone can romance everyone they want.
-Tell Fuse and co. to start the hacking.

Bruh that’s very true. Don’t disable all the bio printers. Gotta have a bait instead of having them focus on counter hacking. What he said. I agree with person.

FYI, when we manage to blood the hackers, we might be able to see if they can created a bioprinted counteragent and sneak that into the bioprinters instead... just sayin'.
