A two-chit brawl definitely isn't worth your time. But maybe it would be about the right difficulty level for Bing or whatever his name is. You should give him a heads-up about that.

You think about investigating the problem at the egg manufactory, but decide that between the higher reward and the priority urgency, you're obligated to accept the escort job.

You hit the option to accept the escort mission to Vatlanding Village and receive detailed instructions to meet the convoy within the hour at the garage of the Consolidated Corrugation Authority's Discount Home for At Risk Youth.

Huh.

That's where that kid, 39, lives. Or you guess they said their name is Dingo now, something like that. Maybe if you see Dingo you can mention the two chit bounty for that local boogie brawl, since you declined the offer of a friendly brawl earlier.

You decide you'd better head out immediately.

Besides your Boogie Sack, is there any special equipment you want to bring along?

You quickly throw on your standard body armor, a helmet with some built-in lanterns, and grab your hands-free aerial cyclotron. You might not need the cycle, but when it comes to escort jobs you like to have enough mobility to scout around or fall back as necessary to keep the principal safe.

[Image: X9DCCpr.png]

Not for the first time, you wish you had a spare Boogie Sack or two. The idea of losing your Boogie Sack and having all your Sack Boogies turn against you has been a recurring nightmare of yours ever since the instructors warned you about the possibility. But at least your sack has some integrated microsteel cables so you can safely wear it on your back.

As you head down the path toward the Discount Home, you can't help thinking about 39, aka Dingo.

Being about the same age, you've been acquaintances throughout the grueling years of Sack Boogie subjugation training. The kid always stood out in class because they were always so optimistic about becoming a Sack Master someday, while the attitudes of the other students (yourself included) generally consisted of various shades of resignation and resentment. After all, it's not like any of you were there by choice.

[Image: BBnoSoi.png]

Of course, 39 also stood out because the kid refused to wear any clothing besides a hat (and occasionally a cape). Sort of makes you wonder what kind of family life they have at the Discount Home.

Speaking of which, you arrive at the garage of the Consolidated Corrugation Authority's Discount Home for At Risk Youth.

[Image: 7zrYWTQ.png]

The garage door is open and it looks like the CCA's intervillage crawler is all prepped to go.

You hop off the cycle and step into the garage. Mr. and Mrs. Consolidated Corrugation is there, as well as that creepy guy who laughs outside your window in the middle of the night.

Mr/s CC: "ALIAS DENNIS, YOUR PROMPT ASSISTANCE IS GRATIFYING."

"Yeah, sure. What do I need to know?"

[Image: IsAUOaW.png]

Mr/s CC: "PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: ENSURE SAFE TRANSPORT AND DELIVERY OF THE PRINCIPAL PATIENT TO VATLANDING HOSPITAL. SECONDARY OBJECTIVE: ENSURE ALIAS FARTBUTTSMAN REMAINS WITH CONVOY. TERTIARY OBJECTIVE: PROVIDE THOROUGH VERBAL REPORT UPON COMPLETION OR FAILURE OF ANY AND EVERY MISSION OBJECTIVE."

You pause to consider whether you have any questions or concerns, or if there's anything you want to do before shipping out.

"Hold up," you say. "Is Fartbuttsman the injured party?"

[Image: h4EYGh0.png]

Mr/s CC: "NEGATIVE. PRINCIPAL PATIENT IS ALIAS RUSTY-BINGO-CADUCEUS. STATUS: COMATOSE, ONBOARD INTERVILLAGE CRAWLER, SECURE."

So there's somebody else already onboard.

You consider what you know about the transport as you climb aboard to check it out.

The intervillage crawler is a double-decker crawler, one of the largest in the village. Usually it's used for cargo runs along the dangerous Murderforest Road.

[Image: 7Or79GM.png]

The lower level is mostly cargo space, with some equipment lockers near the egress hatch.

The upper level is the command deck, with access to the onboard computer systems and a 360 degree view around the vehicle.

You carefully stow your cycle in a locker for now while Farbuttsman wanders into the cargo hold. You cautiously lock the door behind him, then climb the ladder to the upper level.

The primary patient, for whom this whole trip appears to be arranged, is on this floor.

Hey, it's Dingo.

Sigh.
This has to have set some kind of record, getting mauled this bad on their first day?
Probably didn't even get an older boogie hunter to supervise their first fight.

Right, let's get moving. We have a hospital to get this schmuck to.

Edit: Send out a MAGELLICAN to go scout ahead, and check your GRAPEMINE stock's tension. Gotta keep em happy 'till you throw those explosive suckers.
Spoiler: MAGELLICAN
MAGELLICAN, the WINGED GLOBE Boogie monster.
Nobody knows how it flies when its wings aren't even attached, but everyone knows they split open to reveal a very big mouth full of very sharp teeth. Enjoys biting things.
Spoiler: GRAPEMINE
GRAPEMINE, the (DOMESTIC) EXPLOSIVE FRUIT Boogie monster.
Very, very, VERY carefully cultivated/domesticated from the wild GRENAPPLE, the GRAPEMINE is a fragile, sensitive Boogie monster. While safe to handle in soft, quiet, practically zen environments, it will quickly go berserk from even the slightest offense; shortly leading to it's detonation. Comes in both standard explosive and rare entangling vine varieties. Remember to throw them, not hold them.
Edit2: Makes this horrible, awful scream/wail when upset. Wailing that is loud. Loud upsets other GRAPEMINE. One upset GRAPEMINE can detonate the whole bunch, so be careful when handling them.

Quiet. Good for an unusual opinion. Doesn't talk much.

Send your ANNOISY out, onto the roof of the crawler, so it can do its important, awful job of making sound-shadows to deter a good chunk of Boogies.

Poor kid. All that enthusiasm and within hours of getting a starter Sack Boogie, it's off to the hospital for Dingo.

You decide to get this show on the road. You check the onboard computer to be sure all the navigation systems are operating correctly.

[Image: zF9BAem.png]

You don't have much experience at the helm of a crawler, but it's pretty much supposed to drive itself. Everything seems in order as far as you can tell. The destination coordinates are set for Vatlanding Village and the crawler trundles out of the garage and down the path.

[Image: tcS3DKk.png]

Nothing to do now but prep your defenses before you reach the Murderforest.

(ANNOISY, evolved form of VUVUZECHO)

You start by climbing up to the roof of the crawler and pulling your large ANNOISY from your Boogie Sack. By far the most advanced Sack Boogie you own, ANNOISY has proven a useful deterrent when it comes to keeping smaller Sack Boogies away.

[Image: qbWEzfL.png]

Before it transformed from a lowly VUVUZECHO, it seemed to attract more enemies than it deterred--you learned that the hard way. You think it has to do with the Boogie's size; it deters anything smaller than itself, but attracts anything larger.

Nobody knows how it flies when its wings aren't even attached, but everyone knows they split open to reveal a very big mouth full of very sharp teeth. Enjoys biting things.

You also pull out your MAGELLICAN and let it perch on your arm. You'll have it scout ahead when you're closer to the Murderforest. ANNOISY can be quiet until then too.

For now, you sit in relative peace and admire the view of the forested valley and distant mountains as the crawler makes its way toward Vatlanding.

[Image: zBaHgXn.png]

That shady forest is infested with the most terrifying and deadly Boogies known to the world, but you've been through it before, and you've got a sackful of GRAPEMINES prepped for anything that wants to tangle.

You're ready to confront any crazy circumstance this journey could throw your way.



[Image: W71SNvm.png]

You are now Crazy Uncle Fartbuttsman and you've been locked in a cargo hold. This is just like an adventure puzzle! How exciting!

Ramble about your story? Okay, you can try, but it's pretty simple, really.

[Image: zUTeD7j.png]

You see, there's a conspiracy spoiling the youth and keeping secret knowledge from EVERYBODY.

The government's in on it, the mayor is in on it, the scientists are in on it, and you're pretty sure the original founders were--

EGGS!

[Image: LWtj7LO.png]

EGGS EGGS ALWAYS THE EGGS

--The original founders were in on it too. We never left earth, there could never be another earth, the very idea of sending digital representations of human personalities into space by radio wave and having robots build humans on another planet is inherently absurd.

And nobody can see, nobody wants to see, what it took you so long to discover, but which now is so obvious that even a child should--

WHY, HELLO THERE!

[Image: LtVDOSe.png]

This, this right here, this is what you've been trying to tell people.

They didn't believe you. They say you're crazy! But you'll show them who's crazy... you'll show everybody!

No matter what they say, the evidence is incontrovertible! You could never doubt the truth.
