Ninja Burger PBP Episode 12 - 8/8/06
Dice roll summary (irrelevant as there are no dice-rolling actions this turn):
In the pitch blackness you exchange greetings, and stand awkwardly for a moment, listening to each other breathe. This is interrupted by a brief flare of light from far across the room as Morboko opens a door and vanishes out into a hallway in search of the facilities, and in the moment that dim light fills the room you can see everyone else on the team, standing beside a black Ninja Burger delivery van.
Then it is dark again.
The Dispatcher comes over your headsets: "Well well well. Guys, meet your new navigator. We started with seven, and dropped to four, which is one fewer than we like to have out on deliveries, so Rin here will be helping you out. Morboko may be joining us in the future, after she finishes up some other tasks we have for someone with her talents. But for now it'll be just you five. You can all consider yourselves full fledged graduates."
There are a few awkward seconds and then the lights come on, all at once. Blinding.
Blinking away tears, you look around and find yourselves in an immense subterranean garage. Along the walls are parked an assortment of vehicles - vans, sedans, motorcycles - and closest to you is, of course, your delivery van, keys in the ignition. It has, of course, stalled out, and the back end of the van is backed right up against the wall, where the exhaust pipe sticks through into the chamber you just came from. Since it currently has something stuffed in the exhaust, it has stalled out.
Faintly, above the odor of oil and exhaust, you can make out the aroma of burgers and fries. A peek through the van's side window reveals an order, waiting for delivery.
Above the windshield is a small LED readout. It currently says 11:37.
