[Video / Desert City Action ]
[It had taken a little while to find enough solid scrap metal to cobble together, even longer since a few of the pieces he had been intending to use transformed into sand before the work could be completed, but now he had a reasonable facsimile of a transportation device. It would not be very comfortable inside and it would need to rely on the thrusters of the FTO to break through to the glass city but it might be able to provide a chance to a few of the people still trapped here.
Eagle smiled and made certain to thank the people who had helped him put all of this together. So much work in such a short time, it had to have been a group effort.]
It looks like we were able to complete our project after all. I can’t take very many, maybe a dozen or so, but if the FTO holds onto this little construct of ours I should be able to ensure that at least some of you can make it to the Glass City.
Lantis, did you manage to make it to the Desert City? If you did I will hold off leaving until you can get here. The building I had the FTO stored in has already turned to sand and collapsed but, I think you can still find where it used to b--…
[That message to Lantis would have been made private but the privacy filters were just not holding up for some reason, however if it had been the rest of the network would have missed hearing the sudden ear piercing scream of one of the lady welders and the roar of the approaching monster. The rest occurred in a blur of color and motion as a sudden frantic defense was mounted.]
Get back! Stay away from the claws!
[Placing himself between and monster and the civilians was the only way to prevent any of them from falling prey to the snarling scorpion-like creature. From the crate on which the network device sat abandoned only snatches of the ensuing battle could be seen. A flash of a laser weapon, a claw flying free of its former host, the sounds of the battle, and a splash of blood as it hit the sand. Then everything went silent.]
[OCC: Eagle was mortality wounded in this battle but he is stubborn enough to linger for a few parting words. ]
