The Nexus answers "There are many shadows. Any of which the creature may have been talking about. The core would know. Seek your answers there, but remember not to stay too long..the core is not good for mortal creatures sanity"

As for Colt, he is still in training. Shem cautions him "You will have to stop shooting that weapon. Remember that it is not easily stopped..and just because there is nothing between you and a wall, does not mean there is nothing behind it..or out of your line of sight"

Both concerned and curious, Sapputiyok seeks out the core in the hopes of finding some answers.

Colt looks at Shem and nods. "I was using the firing range this Nexus was generating. I know better than to fire indiscriminately. I also found out these weapons actually have settings, too. Kinda reminds me of the phasers in the show Star Trek: The Next Generation back home."

He sighed wistfully as Kat walked past in her armor. "Wish I had one of those suits," he muttered under his breath. Then he looked at Shem and carefully asked, "Anyone ever tell you that you're a striking woman?"

She shrugs. "Plenty. My bond with Reaper has some..unfortunate side effects however." She doesn't go into detail. "Now, you have expressed interest in a Mech suit. Lets get you fitted for one, however, I must warn you..what you gain in firepower and armor..you lose in agility and speed. Also, you will have to use the Mech suits weapons instead of your new toy. Now the one we have for you still uses Photon weapons..but there are two designs. Heavy armor, with heavy weapons..or light armor with lighter weapons. You won't lose near as much movement with the lighter version. Which are you interested in? Of course...I could always introduce you to Steel." She seems to chuckle at that thought.

The Core

The core is .. different. It does not change to fit the persons view of it. A 1000' tall crystal floats in the middle of the room, and countless shards float around it. In each shard you can see images of different dimensions. Only minute pieces of the dimensions however. The Core can not communicate with words, instead showing images to anybody who wants to see what is what.

When Sapputiyok asks about the Phoenix's warning..something odd happens. ((This will only happen in the presence of the core)). Xe sees images of thousands of dimensions flicking by, and scenes of death and destruction in each. Over the battlefields she sees a shadowy figure, and knows it is death..how she knows it is a mystery. With each death the figure grows stronger, and it is reaching more and more dimensions. Sending creatures and things across dimensions, to feed it's hunger. It's not interested in wealth, or trade. It's sole interest is to cause as much wide spread death as it can, to grow stronger. If it is left unchecked..it will consume the multiverse, and nothing living will remain.

Colt gave Shem a narrow-eyed sideways glance. "Why do I get a bad feeling when you mention this 'Steel'?"

He thought for a moment, then shrugged, "I wouldn't mind getting a good look at my options? I mean, what's the worst that could happen to me? I get killed by the suit?"

"Oh you don't have to worry about Steel..in fact it might be the most flexible armor we have..but Steel has it's own mind...and it can be hard to get used to it."

She introduces you to Steel. Which is a round sphere. "Hello my name is Steel, I am a self aware adaption armor. I have several forms that I can take, but I can only do so one at a time..and there is no mixing and matching. They are Strength, Maneuverability, Flight, Aquatic, and normal modes. Normal you will barely notice me there. I will still offer protection, though not as much as in my strength mode, but I am as light as wearing normal street clothing."

Of course I've mentioned the other options.

Sapputiyok leaves the core overwhelmed. Xe tells the Nexus, "Strongarm," and finds xerself at the door to his office.

Strongarm offers Sapputiyok a seat, and xe recaps xer experiences with sensing the "void," the message from the phoenix, then asking the Nexus and the core, about it. Finally, xe describes what the core showed xer. "It is death. Every death near it makes it stronger. It crosses the dimensions to cause more death and make itself stronger. We need to find a way to stop it, before there's nothing living left."

The tone of his voice strongly indicating he was being honest with the sentient sphere, Colt nodded, "I'll keep that in mind, Steel. I'm going to investigate the... abundance... of options, first."

Jacks-of-all-trades are not always the worst choice; sometimes they are the only logical choice, Son, Colt's father had told him ten years before.

Colt looked at Shem. "You mentioned a photon weapon suit in light and heavy styles? While I like Steel's adaptability, and that will factor in my decision, I would still like to investigate the options available, please."

Colt hadn't quite made the fact his dimension still greatly valued courtesy a point of conversation; he didn't need to. It colored nearly everything he'd done here. He'd apologized to folks he'd flown into, he'd tipped his boonie hat to those who were obviously female, or had identified themselves as such, he called Strongarm "Sir", constantly.

Even now, he was being polite to both Shem and Steel, while keeping his investigative mind working. Even if he chose a suit over Steel, or vice versa, it would not be a snap decision; it would be one made with great and careful consideration.

Shem shows you the light option (the best of which is the one you suggested..without augmentation however). She also shows you the heavy options.

All have photon options. The larger mechs of course pack more of a punch, but definitely have limited maneuverability.

You also meet the Mech mechanic. One N'til (pronounced Until with a silent U) "Gadget" Mrhener (pronounced Mer hen er)

A better clothed Succubi ((Safe for work, barely)).

Strongarm's office
Strongarm seems to think for some time. "It's never happened before, but around here the impossible is an hourly event. Ok, I want you and Goldie to look into it. I'll have Derrick on standby just in case. I just don't know if any of us can handle this, heck I don't know if ALL of us can handle it. Death is a force of nature..I have no clue how to stop it. Be careful."

He leans in "One more thing, be wary who you trust. Anybody who has died and came back..death might be able to impersonate. That includes me and Derrick. Goldie is safe, she has never died, but since our heavy hitters have all died at least once...just take care of yourself."

Colt considered his options. True, he could see himself in the light armor, but it was a static design; the others were also static, but they packed a punch... and they were as big as a blue whale.

He tipped his hat to Gadget then asked, "Okay, I think I have my mind made up on which of the suits to take, but which would you suggest?"

She blinked, "I'd wear the torso suit, but with wings..."

Colt nodded, then walked over to Shem. "Okay, I have made up my mind." With that, he walked over to Steel. "Okay, so how do I put you on?"
