The Zone: Part Two

Thanks to the distraction caused by the various creatures and anomalies, and the interference from the ever-increasing radiation, pinpointing the fallen 'meteor' and likely source of the attacks may have been difficult up until now.

But efforts to locate it have paid off.

South-west of Haven, there is a ridged valley that did not exist a week ago. In it's center is a massive, sprawling power plant, exhaust towers rising up to the horizon. It is literally crawling with more mutants.

As if that was not ominous enough, it is a nuclear power-plant.

Anyone who has been to Earth or knows their human history - or happen to be from a Tyran universe - may recognize it for what it is: Chernobyl, straight out of some alternate Ukraine. The facility is tucked in the middle of the valley like it landed there, edges slightly off and melded into the landscape, but entirely intact in it's crumbling, ominous glory. Despite being of human-make, the building is devoid of functional electric lights, the very air around it seeming to leech the light out of the surroundings, but it is far from lacking in 'living' activity.

The concentration of anomalies, radiation, and Lambda-like energy signatures is at it's strongest here, surrounding the moldering facility. Any sensors point to the readings only getting worse on the inside.

Any organics or particularly weak-armored Cybertronians are going to want protective shielding of some variety to participate in this attack. The radiation in this valley is well beyond safe levels, and only on the rise. Any attempts to simply attack from the air (unfortunately) do little damage, the majority of any ordnance hitting some sort of storm cloud-like anomaly thundering with increasing intensity above the facility.

It looks like it might be growing. Time is running out.

You will have to enter to find the source.

[[Mod Note: Given modly time constraints, the following prompts are not intended to be NPC'd, but are instead to serve as a vague story-line for the assault. Feel free to use them, pick and chose only ones that interest you, or to thread your own attack as you please! However, once the Source is reached, a final prompt will be posted when it is destroyed, (or when the event comes to a close a week from today.)

And as a side-note, this plot contains SPOILERS to the end of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series.]]

Frankly? Thundercracker's not waiting for reinforcements. He may not be a Decepticon anymore, per se, but he's still an aerial elite combatant, and it's been too slagging long since he's seen any proper action.

The blue Seeker sweeps in low over the complex, unleashing a controlled sonic BOOM! that rattles the power plant's foundation and flattens most if not all of the surrounding zombies, disorienting them at the very least. He doesn't give them time to recover, either, banking sharply back around for a strafing run with his twin rifles.

There's a barrage of choice words in Cybertronian as his bullets bounce harmlessly off a shield of some kind. Well, that answers the question of the other energy signature he was reading.

He's not worried about how much attention he draws. Stealth is not his greatest ally (especially not with his special mod), and those shambling corpses can't do anything to him anyway.

Thundercracker isn't alone in his aerial assault. Soon there's a high pitched screeching noise. Not more jet engines, but from the massive Predacon diving toward the zombies.

Skylynx keeps his wings partially folded as he dives, like a predatory bird from Earth, then flicks out his wings as he swoops over the clusters. He gives another screech of anger, before he's unleashing his fire on them. Hot enough to probably sear them to ash, if it reaches them.

He gives a rumble as he beats his wings, and climbs higher once again. Banking some as he does so, to come back around again for another try.

"Skylynx!" Good! Put that big, clumsy bird to good use! (That's Decepticon for thinking fondly of someone.) He banks out of the way as the Predacon swoops in for his attack, then opens a comm. ::Skylynx, we have to get that shield down first. Are you scanning anything that might be generating it?:: He himself isn't, but the Predacon might have different scanners than he does.

Jadewing agrees with Thundercracker; it had been too slagging long. He swoops in to join Thundercracker, just in time to hear the barrage of Cybertronian cursing and see what precipitated it.

He opens up a comm channel for easier communications. "Seems like this won't be quite as much of a petro-rabbit shoot as we thought," he said. "Any ideas?"

"Jadewing, what took you?" He's teasing, of course. Without even thinking about it, he shifts his trajectory to fall in line with his fellow Seeker. "We have to get that shield down first. Are you scanning anything that might be generating it?" He himself isn't, but the much younger Seeker might have different scanners than he does.

"Near as I can tell," Jadewing replied as Thundrecracker fell in with him, "it's being generated somewhere within the core of the structure. Readings might be a bit off, though, with all this radiation in the air. Whatever this thing is, it's hotter than a smelting pool and getting more so."

"Gonna be tricky shutting it down without getting our circuits fried in the process..."
