    Sewers

    The crap golems do their jobs, and do them well. The bugs near the exit are swallowed up and cannot escape the weight of all that sludge.

    The dead consumer pops like the other bugs when lit aflame, and the scorpions are splattered against the walls and floor and set aflame. The bugs in the sewer have been wiped out, it seems those who are already in the city are on their own.

    Yellow Zone-Golems

    The last of the large golems are shattered, and several of the smaller ones. Seeing their heavy support dead, the smaller ones start to run from the walkers and towards one of the overgrown streets.

    Yellow Zone

    The alien laying the mines is crushed, and the mines go off. Instead of explosive charges, though, they release a stasis field. Two of the fleeing alien soldiers are mowed down, and the a third loses his leg and turns around, firing his high-caliber gun at the walker behind its legs, hoping to disable instead of kill. Note that high caliber does not necessarily mean high-power.

    Main Gate

    The tank drivers thank whoever they worship that another salvo of rockets hasn't come down, then curse at the gate's continued existence. Some of them angle their cannons and start randomly firing OVER the wall and into the city, but five get the idea to fire again, waiting to see what happens

    Two seven man squads infantry lower their shields and attempt to dig into the walls with their armor's elbow spikes, hoping to climb over the wall, while the others set themselves up in front of the door in a funnel formation meant to make a wedge-shaped charge or flanking maneuver a waste of time. They set up their shields and take careful aim at the wall...

    When Nephrim speaks the last word a sudden crack sounds, echoing through the streets. An intense pain tears through the girl's small frame before she falls unconscious.

    When she awakes, Nephrim will find that she is no longer in Inside. Or perhaps this is the future of Inside, to become torn apart by war. For that is what this city has become. The sounds of fighting still echo through the streets.

    In the distance a clock tower can be seen. Tall enough that it is visible throughout the city.

    Holder of Tyranny

    Nephrim quickly extends the metal rod and unfolds a semi-circular axe blade from the end before walking stealthily towards the tower. She's using her magic halberd as an axe, so it's not as extended as it could be for her size. Her other hand pulls a revolver from her rucksack and places it next to Fear. Should danger threaten, she could draw either quickly. She doesn't take her full natural form because the back pack gets in the way of flight slightly, plus large white wings are more noticable than a small child trying to be stealthy.

    I imagine it will serve as security and possibly a porter due to its strength and resilience. Its exact funtions will depend on my degree of success in making it. Right now I'm trying to decide whether I should include the metal skeleton or not.

    Phil is about, followed by a large walking machine. Both seem to be ignoring what's going on in the rest of the city. The machine is a humanoid robot, seven feet tall, hunched over slightly, no head, with large, ovoid and shining black forearms and lower legs as thick as tree trunks. The legs have feet made up of a circle of five flat but wide short toes for balance, and each arm ends with five long, sausage thick silver fingers made of thick bunches of wires. The upper arms and legs are only about as thick as human ones, and are made of a silvery metal and wrapped in bunches of wires of various colors. The body is shining black with a single shining dark blue stripe running top to bottom form the left shoulder to the left leg, and is shaped like some large, hulking torso. The torso is made up of three pieces, the lower area, and two areas that could be defined as 'pecs'. There are several plates that look like they could flip up or slide out of place to reveal something hidden within. Plugged into the torso, near the top, and snugly nestled into a comfortable looking spherical crevice, is a light gray and deep red robot shaped like a fist sized 20 sided die with several antennae and extra bits attached to it and a single red camera lense eye that's skewed to the right a bit.

    Every once in a while, Phil finds a good looking piece and hands it to the robot.

    Harnel notices Phil and goes over to him. Harnel is a half-red dragon who stands 6'10" and is quite muscular. the obvious features of him that point him out as dragon descended are his body being covered in scales, a pair of yellowish horns coming out under his hair, a 4 1/2 foot muscular tail, and a pair of digitigrade feet. Currently he's wearing Fatigue pants, a black leather jacket, and a blue tee-shirt on his back with the grips protruding over his shoulder is an Ori Staff and a Thunder Hammer, and at his waist is a Particle Magnum. If Phil or his robot can tell, he moves like a warrior who is used to heavy armor

    "Morning,"
    he says, "You looking for something here too?"

    Phil is Tuatha De Danann, and recognizes the look of someone who's used to wearing any sort of armor. Or just plain clothes. He looks up from the scrapheaps and waves blankly.

    "Just grabbing anything good I see and testing out Rho's new body," the robot beeps happily.

    [Battlefield of Tyranny]

    As Nephrim nears the tower the sounds of battle grow louder and louder. Soon she starts to see the spirits of the dead, locked in mortal combat for all eternity. As she passes a group of them fighting, one breaks away from the melee to flee. He's bearing a grievous injury. He'll run right by Nephrim, and will likely spot her if she doesn't hide. It's worth mentioning that the streets are littered with rubble.

    Sorry about going so slow. I'm kind of distracted today.

    Phil shakes the hand with a firm grip that may cause a burst of static to jump over to Harnel's hand.

    Nephrim will duck behind the nearest pile of rubble where she will darken her hair and skin so it blends in better and rubs dust into her blue denim dress and red rucksack. She's hoping she won't be spotted.

    Phil laughs. It's a surprisingly deep and boisterous laugh for someone his size.
    "I build whatever I want. Of course, due to the nature of my being, that usually means that whatever I build is meant for fighting efficiently or going fast or protecting myself, but I hope I never have to use any of that again. Especially not Rho, poor guy's been through too much already," Phil pats Rho's top and the robot beeps contentedly.

    "I'm pretty sure I know what you mean. a fight is fun and everything, but constantly putting your life on the line is hazardous, and not many people can stand to live like that for long." Harnel shrugs, "Me? I'm a career soldier. Been fighting since I was just a wyrmling, so I see the value of things like this."

    He goes up to Rho, looking the robot over, "So... is he a golem, or some sort of tech thing? He seems to have his own personality."

    "It's not that, it's just that I get bitched out when id destroy half a city block to kill one man," Phil shovels through some more scrap.
    "And Rho here is just my first robot. I've upgraded him over the years, and recently built this combat body for him. He has his own personality because as a side effect of the magic I use to enhance my abilities, anything electronic I make becomes sentient. Not sapient, just sentient. Like a really smart puppy."

    Harnel chuckles at the puppy comment. It's an interesting way of making sure things work. In his experience, technology and magic rarely work together effectively. As long as nothing stops him, Harnel is going to start looking over Rho, up and down its legs and arms, testing how well its eyes follow his finger when he moves his hand in front of the robot's face, and just generally examining it. He's quite curious about robots.

    Phil allows Harnel to test his robot, smiling smugly.
    Rho's eye and smaller eye-like attachments follow the finger perfectly, only a small fraction of a second behind. Eventually, Rho snaps out with lightning fast speed and kitten soft gentleness to grab the tip of the finger between two of his fingers.

    The soldier stops, hearing but not seeing Nephrim. He's peering around the various piles of rubble. It's not clear if Nephrim will be spotted, but the combat is loud enough that a single gun shot might be missed.

    Harnel chuckles and withdraws his hand, "Good reflexes, very fast, knows not to be rough with a non-hostile. Any automaton maker would be proud, even just for getting that right," he looks over at Phil, smiling, "But I'm guessing you knew that, and have a lot more installed than just those. What other kind of features does Rho have in him?"

    "Thanks," Phil smiles and Rho withdraws his hand, beeping happily and seeming to smile without a mouth.
    "Rho, show Harnel what I've installed so far."
    Rho nods, turning in his seating, then takes a step back. The plates that are meant to move flip, roll, and slide out of the way, allowing a variety of cameras, power cables, USB ports, areas for hooking up various other electronics, short-barreled guns, some small rockets, smaller robots that can be detached, generators, screens, recording devices , blinking lights, and small motors that seem to be used for control of flight direction. A bigger pair of motors pops out the back, as well as a well-padded seat about Phil's size.

    [Riftline]

    Nephea was rather surprised at the new Riftline. It was a lot quieter and smoother running than she had expected. Probably due to all that magic woven into various bits of it. Though, that said, she was also surprised that there weren't any other people riding on top of the train either. Maybe she was just weird like that?

    It was something to think about... Made for a rather lonely existence for the time being, though. Maybe someone else would rush past her on another train? That would be pretty cool...

    In any case, should anyone take a look up at this particular line, they would see the catamander with her legs dangling over the side of a middle car in slight defiance of air resistance and in major defiance of safety protocols.

    Oh? What's this?

    An authoritative voice commanding for compliance?

    Well, there was really only one way this could possibly play out...

    Nephea considered pretending to be deaf for a moment but discarded the idea as she didn't know sign language. They'd probably catch on to that pretty fast given the technology here. No, she might as well get right to the point and say: "No, I don't think so." with a properly impish grin. She might as well alleviate her lonesomeness with some excitement, seeing that there wasn't likely going to be much of anything else in the next few moments.

    Pushing herself up and trotting over to the center of the car, struggling slightly against the onrushing wind, the catamander stood in wait to see what would happen next; gleefully snubbing the commands issued to her.

    Another hatch opens, near her new spot. It looks like the same robot.

    Helpless Indignant Splutter: But... but... you can't...
