OOC: Shhhh....

IC: "Thanks..."I walk in and I see weapons... Unique ones, in a small room on seperate racks, with designs meant to fit the gun. One that catches my eye is a black rifle with a silver trim, and a dark purple light emitting of tubing attatched to a socket in front of the feed system. The tubing goes to the end of the barrel and the start of the muzzle. On the side, it is labeled SGDMR Soul Ripper.

"Shade Gheist Dark Marksman Rifle. Used by the Fade Guard and Dark Elites. Uses pure dark energy to amplify the power and accuracy of rounds. Soul canisters can be inserted but the model is normally directly fed by the user." The rest of the memory of this gun is played in my head. "Guys! Come here!"
I walk in and look around. "*whistles* Damn, that's some nice hardware."
oh well...

I walk past the door Kain went through, totally set on the 'shed' labeled NRMC.
IC: "Hell yes." I stare at the gun. Loving its shape, the skull scope, the bone theme of the gun... Lovely in my eye.

OOC: yeah, hehe. When you asked I was thinking "don't ruin the surprise..." But anyway last post I gots to go. Quite late.
I walk over to a rack and look over an SMG similar to the VMN I'd been carrying. A memory about only knights being able to use them flashes through my head and I pick it up. "I wonder..." I aim at a wall and lightly pull the trigger. A single, fiery bullet flies out and explodes on impact, leaving a small hole. More of the memory unfolds and I remember I can adjust the effect. "I'm keeping this."
Walking up to a protruding panel, a holographic screen and keyboard flicker to life; a single entry line marked 'ID' sits in the center of the screen. that's what the code I remember is for...
I think, quickly entering it out of old habit. It beeps gently in acceptance and the screen changes. In bold lettering it says; "Stefan Alexander of the 32rd NRMC, recon division". Following it are a pair of options; "Close" and "Access Armory". With an almost trembling finger I reach out and hit the access key.

The screen goes blank as the whir of hydraulics is heard from within the NRMC Armory. In a few moments the doors open revealing my personal armory.

done for the evening... most do home work...
Satisfied with my find, and feeling only the SMG was the only one that would work for me, I head back out, looking for Stefan. "Stefan, where'd you go?"
damnit... just can't quit...

"Over here!"
I call out, not turning from my find;
"Your not going to believe what I just found!"
I turn and spot him in front of the NRMC shed. "Oh there you are. You won't believe what I found." I then double check the contents of the shed and whistle. "And this is supposed to be a medical facility?"
I laugh;
"You misunderstand, I was transferred to recon. We had access to most everything, but everyone had their specialties. Mine is field medicine."
I shrug. "A customized armory, a specialized armory and a standard armory. And we haven't even reached the actual medical facility yet. I wonder where the garage is...Oh, speaking of which, someone else is gonna have to drive the APC. That siege breaker is keyed to my DNA now and won't allow for additional users for a couple days." I look at the three guns I had on me and resolve to place the VMN in a safe place back at Sanctuary.
"It's not just my stuff that's in here, this thing goes down a few 100 feet and opens up into storage space filled with dozens of these things."

Stepping over to an over-sized, double-doored locker, I pull the doors open and admire the suit of armor within;
"Now this is what I'm talking about."
I say to myself.
For a rough size estimate, the NRMC armory 'shed' is about 20 square feet around the base and about 10 feet tall.
"I take it this was a Joint Base..." I say to Jared as I look around more.

I find a black mask. It has light-grey wiring on it, going from the eyes, down the cheeks and to where the users neck would be. The main part of it is the face-piece, which covers the eyes. It has implemented optics on it, (up to 10x zoom, and infrared optics). The other part is the face-cover. A black neo-fibre mask vcering the nose and mouth. It feels like regular cloth, but is so much stronger, and is made with materials to filter non-toxic/poisonous gas. This filter doesn't always work. It also has a M-XVII Shade Gheist H.U.D. I put it on, and the light-grey lights come alive. I insert the wiring in a certain place in my neck. The H.U.D. connects to the Soul Ripper rifle, and it will help me fire, and show me ammo in the clip with special weight sensors.

"I feel like... We're being lead to find these things. So we can do something bigger..."
I nod and go look around, finding another sword like mine, but ice blue rather than deep red like Ignus. "Huh...where have I seen this sword before..." I pick it up and add it to the pack. "It does feel that way...Wonder if there's anything for Devise in here."
"I'm going to go check out the Operations Center. Make sure that's clear before we go through the main Medical Facility."

Speaking of Devise. I decide to check up on her.

{Devise, whats your status?}
I shall reply for minor things until CR has interwebs again.

{Quiet up here. I doubt they knew how we got here.} I laugh. Course not, we'd stopped far enough away. "I'll come with, Kain. I've found what I need here."
The operations center is a 2 story tall, neo-steel/reinforced concrete building with various dishes and antennae on top. The top floor is destroyed, either from nature taking over or heavy weapons. There is also a basement level mainly used as a safe-room and/or storage. But the top floor is mostly wrecked, giant hole in the west side where the stairs is, one room, the comm room, is intact, everything else is gone. The door inside is closed.

"Ready to breach." I say holding Stryker and Darkstar.
I draw my new SMG, dubbed Fury in honor of the rifle I'd lost, and get beneath a window. "Go."
