@Casavay @The_Raven @Maleth @Vulpas @Wata @SpaceHulk @Wincent @Azathoth @BlackNecron As the lieutenants who decided to stand and fight did their best to hold off the coming horde of skeletal monsters they would find their firepower not enough to stop the advance completely. As while many fell many also took their place. Even Novi’s acid spray would barely slow them down as they moved to the sides of the hallway to avoid it. All did not seem to be going well until Shay’s grenades went off. Fire consumed the hallway quickly in the explosion engulfing the small horde that was running at them. Novi who was the closest to the entrance of the hallway was luck she had a thick exoskeleton as the flames reached out and went passed her. The screams of decayed and simply gone respiratory systems filling the air as the infected creatures were consumed in cleansing fire. Once the fire cleared there was nothing left of the infected or the bloodmoss but roasted bones and a foul smell. They could just walk through the hallway unimpeded now, granted Novi had some rather unflattering scorch marks on her exoskeleton now. Perhaps they could serve as something to remind her to be more cautious next time around. Meanwhile those that had decided to leave the rest of the group behind to fight the infected would find another hallway that lead in another direction fairly easily. The colony ship was massive after all and there was going to be more than one way to get to the same place. @Vlayden The Dragoon and Phantoms would remember their briefing before the mission that scans revealed there was biomass aboard the station. However when they looked through thermals they couldn’t find any signs of immediate life. Perhaps they were simply in an area of the station with thicker walls or perhaps there was something wrong with their equipment. Whatever the case though caution is always advised. This was proven to be something that one should certainly always keep in mind as a door was opened into the rest of the station causing a sudden burst of cold air flooded the room. It seems the door had been holding back the results of a burst coolant line for the super conductors in the walls. And walking near it caused a motion sensor to come to life sliding open the door forcefully. After a moment to calm themselves they could see that someone or something had been frozen solid on the other side.
