A large rumbling near the Dome's gate...

on Tue Nov 07, 2017 2:39 am
The residents of the slums situated near Dome gate 1-C were treated to a rude awakening as the sun peaked over the cobbled buildings. A loud rumbling as the gates opened signaled the coming of a metal monstrosity, a massive 10 meter tall humanoid construction with a large claw like appendages, and a polished chrome finish. As it exited the gate on large treads, it begin the morning by collecting scrap metal from various trash piles, and stuffing it into it's own containment unit located in its chest. The locals regarded the thing with a mixture of aggravation, and curiosity, but as the morning wore on, they figured it was benign enough.

After a while, little scrap metal remained in the trash piles around the area, and the robot turned its attention to the huts of the people of old Tokyo. Many people in the slums built their homes out of whatever was available, and often the relics of the great war, abandoned landing sites, old bunkers, and especially metal plating comprised what little shelter they had for the unforgiving winters. The robot turned to one such structure, and with a mighty slam, smashed the rusted hut to pieces, which it begin collecting, before one of the locals threw a rock at it.

"Hey, that's our homes! The hell you think your doing?!"

The strange metallic head turned to him, and a cold voice responded, "HOSTILES IN AREA, LETHAL FORCE AUTHORIZED."

The strange robot leveled its claw arm, and from a compartment on the same arm a machine gun emerged, opening fire on the civilian and painting the ground. The robot continued in its duty without a care, and without putting away its weapon. It continued smashing the crude shelters, and gunning down anyone foolish, or slow enough to be in its way. As it's rampage continues, it seems whoever sent it has no intention of calling it back...

Leaning back in his chair, Councilman Fushiyama observed the destruction upon an advanced holographic monitor. He chuckles as the foolish slum dweller is gunned down and reduced to a smear on the ground. Councilman Fushiyama takes a deep draft of his synthetic alcohol beverage and smiles. While the Council would be mad that he hadn't alerted them of the situation he was sure they would relent in their scolding once they saw the chaos that had ensued because of it. Life in the Dome was so sterile and congenial, very little fighting occurred outside of closed doors and there was an atmosphere of forced politeness, especially among the Council. Videos of destruction, chaos, and violence were an excellent way to vicariously live through whatever machine or monstrosity was preying upon the lesser men and women of Neo-Tokyo's slums and provided much-needed stress relief for the overworked councilman. In spite of his bloody and raucous entertainment Fushiyama's mood is immediately soured when he sees the Chief Engineer enter the breakroom from the corner of his eye.

"Shit, why did that asshole have to come along and spoil the mood." Fushiyama mutters under his breath.

He eyes the Chief Engineer with contempt before returning to the violent scene ensuing outside gate 1-C.

A man in a thick jacket and a gas mask rushes outside after hearing the sound of smashing steel and projectiles puncturing the flesh of men. Once outside, he gains a view of the 10 meter metallic monstrosity tormenting the poor slum dwellers.”Shit! Why now?” He exclaims aloud. Fully unzipping his jacket, he places both hands inside to draw two revolvers; a ten-shot in his left and a four-shot in his right. “Today is the day that it’s my mettle vs metal.” The man fires a single shot from his left-wielded gun past the monster’s head to draw its attention as he dashes towards cover to protect himself from the barrage of machine gun fire sure to come.

As the machine turns, it wastes no time returning fire. It rolls slowly along on its treads in a straight line towards the man in the gas mask, paying no heed to whatever small shelter its crushing along its path. It continues to lay down a suppressive fire, as it gets closer.

Hiding behind the cover, the man gets a quick glance over his cover to see the robot racing towards his position before he is force to duck to avoid a shot the the head. “Shit. This thing isn’t going to let up or let me move, is it?” The man digs in his jacket and pulls out a bullet that has a black ball on the end and loads it into the emptied slot of his left gun. Flicking his wrist to lock the cylinder in place, he points the gun towards the ground. “Let’s see if you can catch me.” He fires his gun and a cloud of thick smoke fills the area of his cover as the bullet impacts the ground, and the man prepares himself to bolt towards new cover.

"Shit, is that a Fumigator!?" The Chief Engineer shouted.

"Fuck, you're right, he is going to put this show to an end." Councilman Fushiyama grumbles.

"He's a Dome citizen, we have to intervene or the Council will have our asses!" The Chief Engineer shouts.

"Ugh, fine." Councilman Fushiyama pouts and sends out an alert to deploy Class 2 Sentinels to gate 1-C.

The machine pauses as the smoke cloud rises, swiveling its robotic head back and forth, momentarily confused. The strange lights on its face begin to blink, and a mechanical voice emits from it.

"VISION OBSCURED BY 80%, ENGAGING NIGHT VISION MODE"

The strange lights on the machine's face begin to blink red, and it turns to face its quarry, a reaction much slower than its last, and it unleashes another hail of bullets.

Seeing this momentary window, the man dashes from his cover and rolls behind the remnants of a hut's wall, hoping the robot did not catch his maneuver. "Think, Markus. Take it down quickly. It must have a vulnerable spot somewhere." Markus, peaks from his new hiding spot and analyzes the construct for its build. He draws back the hammer of his right revolver and prepares to fight fire with fire.

The robot slowly turns it head, scanning the area with its "night-vision". As it levels it gun, one might notice the hole in its plating where the gun augmentation emerged, revealing circuitry below its chrome exterior. It levels its claw arm, reading to unleash another onslaught.

"That's it! I've got one chance before I'm perforated. Don't let me miss this!" Markus quickly loads his left pistol with a red-tipped bullet, followed by bullet filled with a green liquid. Peeking over the wall, Markus fires the first shot towards the robot's sensors, hoping the explosive round will overload its optical sensors, then prepares to roll out in front of it to fire the acid-spraying bullet into its inner mechanisms to, at the very least, disable its weaponry.

The mechanisms holding the gun in its position quickly begin to melt as Markus' shot impacts under the chrome plating. Before it can open fire, the machine gun collapses back into the forearm of the robot. The first bullet explodes in its face meanwhile, shattering the screen protecting the various lights. Its clear as the large machine begins thrashing around blindly with its other arm that it wasn't nearly as sturdy as it looked.

"CRITICAL DAMAGE TO CAMERA AND SENSOR SYSTEMS, HOSTILES ARE NOT NEUTRALIZED, EMERGENCY PROTOCAL DELTA"

A screen on a panel of screens goes static, and the well-shaven man in a guards uniform heaves a sigh, lifting a phone to his ear. "That's right sir, man in a gas mask.. no sir, he appeared to be a pure-blood.. sir, didn't you hear me? He's not a mutant.. Right, sorry sir, I'll call them right away." The man puts down the phone, and takes a deep breath, before dialing a number, and gulping. A clear voice answers,

"Ah, if it isn't one of my favorite clients. How can I help you this morning?" said the man on the other side, condescendingly.

"N-nothing big, just some small trouble near dome gate 1-C. We got a pure-blood damaging one of our assets in a gas mask," explained the guard nervously

"Nothing big you say? You don't call us for 'nothing big'."

"Listen, it's orders from the boss, I'm just relaying the message. Can we count on you to rescue our assets? Same pay as usual.."

"Don't patronize me, 'pure-blood', for the right price, the Old Tokyo Seven always deliver. I'll send our newest agent immediately."

The guard exhales in relief as he hangs up. Something about that man just felt off to him, dangerous. They might call themselves the Old Tokyo Seven, but he and his colleagues had a different name for them, The Seven Devils. The guard could count himself a little lucky that at least the camera was disabled, so he didn't have to see what was coming next..

As the robot spasms and thrashes due to critical system failures, Markus levels his right gun at its chest. “I win,” is all he said before firing four shots, intending to fully disable the monster before it could escape or cause more damage with its thrashing.

The first shot impacts directly on the thrashing robots chest, and pieces of scrap metal scatter all over the ground as it continues to convulse. The next three shots rocket into its side, blasting it into two huge pieces, that continue to twitch until they short-circuit. Nearby citizens are left speechless for a moment, before a cheer erupts from the nearby onlookers as the smoke from Markus' shots clear. Soon a number of the irradiated peasants and mutants are approaching Markus, either to cheer him on, or shake his hand. A mutant attempts to jovially greet him and shake his hand with his third arm.

Markus, a bit overwhelmed by the large throng of people, stutters as he tries to reply to everyone, simply stating “it’s my job” and “the right thing to do” and such. He does, however shake everyone’s hands with his glove-covered hand, after having holstered his two guns. After some time, Markus manages to break through the crowd and heads towards the remains of the robot. He kneels down and begins examining the construct, searching for any company markings or well known organization symbols to find out who is the next subject of discussion at the soonest Fumigator meeting.

A woman stands atop one of the make-shift buildings, hardly a half mile from the scene. She watches as Markus examines the robot from binoculars. After a bit, she lowers them, revealing dark bags that accentuate the predatory gleam in her eyes. "So that's him" she mouths. As she jumps off the shelter starting in a jog, she holds a lighter in shaking hands, igniting and re-igniting it. A grin reaches her face as she gets closer..
