First topic message reminder :

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.

The scout kneels behind a rock around the edge of the basin, propping his rifle up on it. "I'll cover from here."
A noble offer... Or perhaps a cautious one.

Slowly, the ground beneath them begins to shake, as though something large and heavy is getting closer.

Yorick quietly puts the paper back in her pockets and pulls out her two pistols instead.

The scout tenses up. "Perhaps you hardier folk should approach..?"

Maria isn't necessarily hardy... she doesn't want to hang behind too much, though.

Taniel keeps at a reasonable distance for sniping.

The shaking suddenly picks up in intensity... And the snow underneath them begins to crumble, about to send them tumbling down into the basin.

Yorick quietly puts her pistols back in their holsters and unstraps her rifle for use, then starts sliding down the hill of her own volition instead of waiting.

The scout backs up hurriedly, putting the party between him and the basin.

Maria elects to follow Yorick.

Taniel grabs his rifle and slides down as well. He's controlled and lands easily, almost as if he's done this sort of thing before.

Duval seems quite surprised at first, but quickly stabilizes himself and seems to have as smooth a ride. The shaking becomes more prominent, and loud thumps can be heard quite clearly from the bottom of the large basin... Until they suddenly stop. In their stead, there is a weird sort of drilling noise... That starts getting louder and louder, from directly underneath them. Something was drilling towards them from under the snow.

Yorick sighs. "Maybe I should have brought the net gun..."

How a net gun would help any more is anyone's guess.

The scout doesn't seem willing to join them.
In other words I'm now being skipped until further notice.

The drilling gets closer and closer, until eventually, something pops out from the middle of the ground and up into the air. It was too covered in snow to really tell what it was...

Yorick takes a pot shot at it anyway, fairly certain that it's nothing friendly, since the scout wasn't stepping forward.

Maria squints, trying to make it out.

Taniel follows Yorick's lead, taking a shot at the thing.

The creature flaps open its snow-covered wings, revealing itself to be some sort of drill-beaked bird, cloaked in shadows. The bullets fly off harmlessly from its wing flaps; apparently its wings had some sort of protective armor to them. Its body seemed different in a way, but it didn't seem like it'd just let itself be shot that easily...

She decides to aim for the drill, instead. It certainly wasn't going to expect that.
