Meanwhile, three miles under ground in Washington State..

NRP: Wanted in on this, but none of my people are really the fight-for-fortune-and-fame types. So here.


Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Click went the stopwatch, seizing at a sharp 03:21. Sarah Kinison looked up from her clipboard and ground her teeth in anticipation, a leftover from the heroin withdrawal. She was in over her head, and she knew it. The project she'd been working on had been dumped unceremoniously in her lap after its initial results were essentially adopted out of a bombed out lab. Genetics were her trade, but this was something else again.

"Subject performing at levels previously defined as standard for GX-01a "Soldier" archetype." She took a sharp breath and exhaled. "...Recommend field testing for further results." Time to go big or go home. "Beginning test battery XXVI for GX-02."

The process of moving the Soldier was slow and uncertain, as nobody had ever deployed one of the creatures before. Eventually, the mechanics in the garage depot rigged a biostasis pod to lie horizontally in the back of a semi trailer, and Soldier was off to prove its title.

Meanwhile, Kaze was dealing with a distressing phone call about the activation. They'd sent it to the Iron Hand Tournament.

NRP: If there's no room to fight anyone else, that's fine. Just say it went a couple rounds with unnamed NPCs before biting it. This NPC is an expendable clone of another character/creature of mine.
