Nod.

They reach suburbia. Emily kills two deer and a wild turkey and builds a makeshift smokehouse out of scrap metal since they can't eat that much meat quickly and don't have refrigeration abilities.

Smart. Lorica goes looking for dandelions.

Permalink

Dandelions are super prolific! No one is around to slow their invasion now >:3c

Lorica slows the dandelion invasion. Then she goes back to picking at the sentinel, not quite fugueing. "What I really need here is an input method, either for Rete to be able to radio the chip here or to be able to hook it up by hardware to a keyboard or something."

Permalink

"Oh, if you want a radio I can make a radio, that's easy."

Permalink

"Can you make the Sentinel chip listen to it, is the question, I do have radio on board."

Permalink

"...I don't know anything about their encryption, sorry."

Permalink

"Yeah, I'm gonna probably have to do the hardware thing."

Permalink

"I don't know how much help I can be besides duplicating parts, there."

Permalink

"- If I popped bits out of my suit, could you duplicate them without affecting the originals?"

Permalink

"...I was going to say definitely yes but I guess if the originals would be affected by enough magnetic field passing over them for me to perceive them..."

Permalink

"How much is that?"

Permalink

"--I dunno, I mean I know but if magnetism has units I never got around to learning them."

Permalink

"Can you start lower than that and ramp up and Rete can warn me if you're stressing something?"

Permalink

"I can try, is there a less than maximally essential bit to try this on first just in case?"

Permalink

"Yeah, but it has to be something with the right kinda sensors..." Lorica thinks for a bit, then reaches behind her back. A scale of armor pops off into her hand and she holds it out.

Permalink

Emily frowns at it and ever-so-gently pokes at it. Like maybe as if there were a classroom bar magnet across the room. 

Permalink

"Harmless," Lorica pronounces.

Permalink

Emily increases it slowly until it is enough that she can get some fuzzy details of the interior. The bar magnet is now about halfway across the room. 

Permalink

Metaphorical bar magnet is now adjacent and she can feel enough detail that if she's missing anything it's not obvious to her. 

Permalink

"If you stepped that up another time Rete'd have to start compensating but as-is it's fine."

Permalink

"I could plausibly but not definitely get more relevant detail if I stepped it up."

Permalink

"Okay, let's try a scan at this level on something I could use more of and see if it comes out good enough or at least tweakable into good enough." She pops the scale back on. She hesitates, then takes off her helmet.

Permalink

"I still can't read you, if that was in doubt."
