blah blah blah frozen wasteland

---
From the Zima Find The Shard mission:
Continued from http://ciphersyndicate.forumotion.com/t3124p25-military-mimika#185622

Time passes as they travel across the frozen lands, the snow piling higher into great dunes and hills, and the sky is soon blotted out by heavy, gray clouds, hanging low enough to feel almost claustrophobic. Soon enough, it starts to snow, making the way forward that much less clear.
After who knows how long, and who knows who he knew, but the scout's voice crackles out from the powersled's speakers, saying, "We're approaching the deadzone soon. You might want to hold onto your lunch, it can get rough. No more magic from here on out."
The party crosses some invisible line, and a feeling of deep discomfort settles into them.

Maria clutches her magical symbol. All I need is to have faith...

Duval takes a deep breath, the feeling quite familiar to him.

Taniel gets no response. The scout continues on.
Up ahead, the clouds grow black, and the way forward is blotted out by snow.

Maria does her best to follow the scout.

Taniel doesn't seem to have much trouble staying on course.

Duval keeps an eye out for any sign of danger, not really having much else to do.

You'd think her books would get wet from the snow, but no.

Nothing eventful happens between then and reaching the foothills, but the atmosphere remains just the same, and it occasionally feels like they're being watched from just beyond the darkness of the snowstorm.
"We're here." The scout's voice comes again, and he comes to a halt at the edge of the foothills. "This is the best we figured out."

Yorick tosses her head up in the air and jumps up, catching it on her shoulders. Probably something she does when she's bored, I guess. She pulls out a compass. "OK! Should be... That way!"

"You seem to have your way, lead on."
The scout takes a rifle from the side of his powersled and joins the group.

Taniel follows as well, secretly hoping the dullahan doesn't get them lost in this cold.

Duval follows along as well, seeming fairly confident in her navigating skills.

She whistles a tune as she marches through the snow, clearly not bothered at all by any of the surroundings. You'd think she was just on holiday or something.

The foothills are eerily empty, few creatures apparently living this far north, if any. Even worse when someone is briefly hidden from view by the crest of one of the many hills.
Soon enough, a large basin comes into view below them, surrounded on all sides by slopes. It's a bit far down to clearly make out its contents, given the snow blowing around them, but the shape of the basin itself doesn't seem natural.

Maria makes a sort of sign with her hands for warding off evil. This appears to be a subconscious reaction.

Taniel looks down into the basin.

It appears to have been made by someone... Or something. Something that seems to still be nearby, judging by the unearthly howl that can be faintly heard amidst the snowfall.

"Ok, that wasn't there last time. Maybe this is it? Look alive, everyone!" She drops her bag behind her and pulls out some blank sheets of paper.
