I must admit that I m still impressed at how efficient and
addictive this crystal rock is...
Yes, most fortunate, found by accident, who would have thought, a small electric charge
in the crystal, stimulates the pleasure centers of the brain.
The subjects comes to a stage of obsession of 'the touchstone' and hold it
Although we leave plenty of food, they don t touch it,
we actually have to get the stones out of the cell for them to feed.
they become totally open for suggestion, perfect for my experiments!
After only a few hours of deprivation, they will do anything for another 'touch'!
Frankly, I don t know why you are still messing with the greenie project,
the touchstone seems more promising!
Because, I am not satisfied with obedient town people, the greenies heal
from any wounds, they are almost immortal!
And lately, I have made significant discoveries!
oh, I think I dropped my pen in the transmuting chamber, would you
get it for me please?
Of course General, what were those discoveries?
something you have found yesterday?
One of them, is that bombarding a subject with transmuting rays,
combined with greenie dna, could produce an ultra strong greenie!
Will you try it on one of your guards?
Your pen is nt here, hey!
the door is locked!
Another discovery is that you are responsible for MC Sniper s return!
YOU RE MISTAKING!
his hair turned red, then, he died!
Even so, you re also responsible for the spiders s behavior sub routine,
you set them to 'observation'!
Do you think I don t know about your own little 'experiments' in the cell?
made tons of money with your little 'buisness' in Beachfront city?
the gangs obey me, but, they are only loyal to you!
don t do this to me!
you are a mad man!!!
He transforms in minutes!
I wonder how much of himself will remain?
DR D [greenie];
Something is wrong!
stop the experiment!
he did nt grow, I expected pain, but, not a coma.
at least, he won t be in my way in the capture of the invaders!
2 Doors, and we re there!
.........SSSSSSHHHHHHHLUNK!!! [DOOR CLOSING]
The door just closed!
VARTOK ON SPEAKERS;
You have made it this far...
I know you are here for information and my capture...
I know I would win the confrontation, but, the battle could damage the lab,
and slow down my progress...
I will tell you all I know, so that you may go, and avoid the confrontation!
Everyone thinks that I created the greenies,
meet DR Stebbens, explorer, who found the 'green exfolia' plant who produces the spores!
SSSHHHHLUNK! [DOOR CLOSES]
His crew and himself have gotten infected by the plant,
we captured him while I was working for the GF,
our analyses, revealed that it s not indigenous of Alta-5,
aliens put this plant here to infect us!
It failed, because they placed it too deep in the jungle to make contact,
I have it contained now.
I do however have made a few contributions to the phenomenon,
Avalanche, and my personal guards are my work, and I control the greenies.
Have you noticed how your 'guest' have been so uninterested in you?
that can all change by the pressing of a button!
direct skin contact, or his breath should be avoided,
unless, you want to turn just like him!
There is no cure but, time!
when DR Stebbens came back to normal, it was in the middle of research,
so, the GF scientists exposed him again!
there is no telling on how long it will take him to come around this time!
one thing is for sure...
if you shoot him...
it s murder!
this is as much as I m willing to tell you.
now, will you go?
COMMANDER IRON FIST;
I appreciate a little history, and the gesture, but,
there is no way I m letting you torture any more innocent people!
the Metal Legion is putting an end to your research!
You hold these people hostage!
you push the button, you re the murderer!
As much as I know about the greenies, I did nt know this!
I never believed that they could come back to normal,
he is not a greenie anymore, it s DR Stebbens now!
That complicate things!
Yeah, now, we have to capture instead of shooting the greenies,
for them to return being innocent people!
The Doc gets agitated!
Let me help him settle...
There, that should cover it nicely!
HA, HA, HA, HA, that s good!
now, do it again a hundred times!
continues in ep#7!
CREATOR S LOG;
I should be able to finish this part of the story next episode.
Excellent twist. This makes the story a lot more complicated and interesting. No more "capture the bad guy and kill his goons" quest, now it is "figure out what is happening and survive" type of thing.
Fools! Vartok lies! How can any of you take that mad man his word? Isn’t it more likely that he is simply lying? People have been fighting the greenies for years now. And in all the recorded contact with greenies, in all the research and all the fighting, there has never been an OBSERVED case of this "recovery". Now you all suddenly believe the claims of Vartok? He and his army of contaminated murder-bots must be put to the torch! And quickly! He is only trying to slow us down by using our own compassion against us. He has a plan (he always does) and all he needs is a little more time. White phosphorus or gasoline would be the best tools to use in this situation. But right at this exact moment... I advise a hasty retreat. Return in an hour, drain a fuel tanker (or 6) into the underground tunnels, light a fuse, and put this army of tortured souls to rest once and for all. Attack! (ok, first retreat… then ATTACK!) Great stuff Cyberfrank! Keep it coming!
Exciting! the touchstone-concept sounds eerie, but those greenies are.. well, scary! I like the notion that they return to normal over time though. Very nice lab too by the way, The glass chamber looks great with extra lighting :-)
That's very creepy... And the greenies are weird looking... Awesome! I thought that one greenie was Dr. Kilroy but it was not. I hope Chris never encounters any of these, That stone crystal or the greenie... Or it would be awesome if he did! Nice episode!
It really amazes me how well you're able to build the scenes that go with your story here; it looks quite apocalyptic. Also, they're gonna have a tough time stopping all the green people! Well done! 5/5! :-)
