    Default [Acro] WATCHTOWER I: I can see my house from here!

    Jutting out of the side of Overlook Waterfall like the prow of a gigantic bireme that was on land, somehow managed to insert itself into a cliff, and also has a big glass observatory figurehead's head would be, is the WATCHTOWER.
    Who built it? Unknown (A sect of mages known as the Dillinites). What purpose does it serve? Unknown (Dillinite Forward Command Base). How do people even know about these things? A sort of sixth sense, really, which tells everybody in Acronymia when a new thread is created (Unknown).


    Right now, however, this WATCHTOWER is looking pretty worn out. The observatory at the top is broken, craters and scorch marks and all sorts of ugliness mar the previously smooth surface of the magicrete, and many of the windows are missing glass. Plus, there's all sorts of traps and stuff, the whole place smells and there's wild critters living in it and some of the quarters have large amounts of mold in them. Indeed, this building, before it can be of any use, must be RECLAIMED.

    ((Coming Soon!))




    THE BUILDING
    Spoiler
    Show
    ((Maps will come later))

    First Floor
    Spoiler
    Show

    Main Room - A main entrance room, with room for entertainment and sofas and tables stuff. Currently room to several broken chairs, a few bear corpses, and several magnificent bloodstains.
    Kitchen - A Kitchen, where food is kept and stored and stuff. The pantry is self-replenishing to a degree, but most food items will need to be bought. If anyone bothers to keep track of that stuff, that is.
    Barracks (East) - A bunch of quarters and stuff. Each room is quite large, with two bunkbeds.
    Barracks (West) - A bunch of quarters and stuff. Each room is quite large, with two bunkbeds.
    Showers - Public showers? How barbaric! Public MIXED-SEX Showers? How... Yeah, it's barbaric.



    Second Floor
    Spoiler
    Show

    Library - A large room, with the entire south wall being a window overlooking the courtyard. Here all manner of books may be found, mostly on the subject of magic, and the higher levels thereof, but others two. In the center is a shrine to a forgotten god, which has been covered by a sheet.
    Offices - A room full of desks and cabinets and things. Useful for paperwork. Like that'll ever get done.
    Infirmary - Full of beds, a few magical monitoring devices, a wardrobe full of medical robes, and a cabinet full of a wide range of cures, including the herbal, the alchemical, and the downright magical. A distinct lack of science though.
    The Labs - Behind a blast door and a decontamination chamber lie the labs, four rooms where the Dillinites carried out their twisted experiments.



    Third Floor
    Spoiler
    Show

    Security Room - A large room overlooking the courtyard, from which WATCHTOWER's defenses and other things can be operated.
    Prison Cells - Holding cells for bad people. Includes a torture chamber.
    Arena - A (several) fighting pit(s), where prisoners and experiments used to fight for the Dillinite's pleasure. Now may be used for that purpose, or as simple sparring/training pits.
    Vaults - A large vault, where weapons and gold are kept.



    Basement
    Spoiler
    Show

    Safe Room - A nearly impenetrable panic room with room for a year's worth of supplies.
    Escape Tunnel - An Escape Tunnel



    Catacombs
    Spoiler
    Show

    A bunch of catacombs and stuff below the basement. Excitement and plots sure to be found here, as well as a viable avenue for a sneak attack. This isn't technically, part of the building, merely a network of DungeonsTM under it.



    Observatory Level
    Spoiler
    Show

    Viewing Room - The glass section of the Observatory, the images are 'projected' on the glass, with limited capabilities with picture in picture and that sort of stuff. No sound though, unfortunately.
    Control Room - The rear half of the observatory, where controls to control what's projected onto the glass of the viewing room can be found. The Observatory is capable seeing incredible distances, in space and on land (though more so in space), and has several filter options, like brightness filters so you don't crap your eyes looking at the sun (or other nearby star). No thermal imaging or other useful things though. The Dillinites weren't that advanced.

    This OP will be subject to updates, especially in this early period, so even though major updates will be posted or generally mentioned in the Acro OOC thread, it would be advisable that you check back regularly. Also, whenever this thread reaches 50, I'd ask no-one else start the new thread, at least until all the pictures are in and the reclamation is over, or until I say okay.

    DC's arrived by now, but since his player hasn't received any PMs, he'll just sit here until said player knows what to do.

    He can knock? There's a door with a brass knocker and everything, down at the end of the courtyard. If it can be called a courtyard, that is. It's certainly... open.

    Fortunately, DC is saved from having to take the initiative, as KR, sensing his presence, opens the door, and upon spotting him, splits into a wide grin.

    This may be the time to start running.

    Wenomir is approaching the WATCHTOWER quickly, with anticipation. As soon as he reaches it, he enters and fills out a form.

    The Main Room, is pretty devoid of furniture or other things, instead filled with various NPC cleaners and home decorators. In one 'corner' of the round room, a few people in white coveralls drag the corpse of a bear across the floor to the entrance, while nearby another one is attempting to scrub the blood and guts out of the wall.
    Wenomir may or may not be barged over by two men carrying a low coffee table through the entrance, followed by an exasperated KR.

    Wenomir moves aside when the men enter and squints at KR.
    Hello... don't I know you from somewhere?
    I don't think he met KR very often.

    Yes. I filled out the form. Wenomir shakes her hand and hands her the paper in question. So what are we exactly going to do here?

    "Put down villains."
    She looks around the room for a second, grimacing.
    "At least, that's what we will be doing. For now, we want to be effective, we're going to have to play exterminator for a while."
    She places the form on a table by the door, before calmly signing a paper given to her by a furniture guy.

    It's slowly starting to take shape. More furniture is coming into the round room, and it's starting to gleam from the efforts of the cleaning crew.

    "I'm not exactly sure what we'll be facing, except it's a combination of monsters, beings and traps set by the owners and previous inhabitants.

    Well, let's see what we've got here, shall we?

    The West Barracks is composed of a hallway with 6 rooms, 3 on each side, and a bathroom at the end of the hallway. The wooden doors stare at Wenomir, daring him to open them.

    The door opens, revealing a perfectly ordinary barracks room, as one might see in any such structure in armies and militaries throughout the multi-verse.

    There is, however, an extraordinary stench about the room.

    Near the back of the room, there seems to be a large clump of decomposing material, the source of the foul smell. A large clump of shelf fungus appears to be growing from this pile, which is a mulchy mix of rotting wood, sawdust, rusting metal, and glass dust.

    Wenomir looks for something handy and throwable and if he finds it, he throws it at the fungus.

    Wenomir chucks a spare boot lying under one of the beds at the fungus.

    The fungus takes offense at this!

    It quickly moves off of the mulch pile and onto one of the beds. The fungus quickly covers the wooden frame of the bed, speckling it like an old log in the forest. The fungus changes appearance so that its texture matches the wood of the bedframe.

    The bed promptly begins to move as if animated and tries to trample Wenomir.
