    Want to join? Simple::

    1. Wander aimlessly in.
    2. Avoid the random AMENites/HALOers who will attempt to kill you.
    3. Poke one of the current members until they hand you the paperwork.
    4. If the aforementioned current member you poke kills you rather than hands you the paperwork, then you didn't pay attention to step 2. Repeat steps 2 & 3.
    5. Sign the mountain of paperwork, preferably in your own blood, although anyone's blood will do.
    6. Prepare to have had your non-existent soul to have been sold to whoever gave you the legalese our leader-by-default, Lord Walrus.
    7. Congratulations! You're now an official AMENite! Do random stuff! Kill people! Make things explode!

    A large, purple tornado appears in the center of the base. Out from the very depths of the tornado steps a small, fiddlin', frog. The fiddilin' frog hums a few notes before leading into a fiddlin' solo.

    "Oh smack my whiskeys! I gots a pie, m'lord!

    The frog then vanishes, and Cat awakes. Everything is as it was, in Phase's room.

    The charm has an error message.

    SCANNING
    AREA
    TOO
    LARGE

    The same would happen with any other methods of magical scrying.

    The room remains. The foyer, with the sack and all members of operation S.P.R.I.G. except Uncle Festy. The room in which Uncle Festy currently sits. Two other doors, one in the center, and one to the right.

    Haruki has stepped into a small, dark corridor. A flourescent light suddenly flicks on. The room is about four by twelve feet, and appears to be lok a hall of sorts. there are four doors on the left side, four doors on the right, one at the end of the hall. They all have signs on them that cannot be made out from this angle.

    Haruki runs at the door at the end of the hall.

    "Looks dangerous....... let's open it!"

    He opens the door.

    The room in which Festy casts the spell glows slightly. The mirrors on the walls, however, glow a bright purple.
    __________________________________________________ __

    The door opens, in seems to be made of Silicon. Haruki steps into a very small room, with one door at the other end. This door also appears to be made of Silicon. A large sign on the door reads:

    Warning!
    Warning!
    Danger!
    No Trespassers!

    Uncle turns to the mirror. "Mirror mirror on the wall, what has Phase been doing in... hmm, what rhymes with wall? there's gotta be something... oh, whatever ... here?"

    The shades in the mirror continue to traverse the glass. At Festy's question, one of the shades bangs the mirror with it's fists. It opens it's maw, driping with an unknown substance, Festy can see into the white, burning depths of the shade. It's hard to make out it's exact features, it appearing like a living shadow. The shade bangs it's fists against the mirror again, and screechs deafiningly:

    "HAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLPEEEEEEEEE!
    HAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLPEEEEEEEEEE

    The shade continues to bang on the mirror. More come from the sides and join the first shade. They make no mark on the mirror...

    Flickerdart drags over a floodlight and snaps it on, pointing the dazzling beam of light at the shades.

    Uncle hefts a baseball bat, and contemplates it for a moment. "Hmm, maybe... nah, too easy." He places a hand on the frame of the mirror, keeping his hand away from the mirror itself, and says, "Legend Lore."
    ((*celebrates the awakening of the forums from their half-dead slumber*
    Uncle Festy in no way supports celebrating the awakening of anything from a half-dead slumber. Despite not supporting it, Uncle Festy reserves the right to laugh at the results))

    The shades don not react to the lights. More come from the mirrors and pound on other mirrors around the room.

    The second Uncle Festy reaches to put his hand on the glass, the shades at that mirror start shaking their heads and pounding harder. When Festy touches the glass to cast the spell, his hand begins to sink into the mirror.

    ((Smart man, I missed that, Redo!))

    The second Uncle Festy reaches to put his hand towards the mirror, the shades at that mirror start shaking their heads and pounding harder. He casts the spell. Images pour into his mind, horrible images, images of terrible things, torture, mutilation, terror. The shades in all the mirrors clutch their temles and shriek in agony, before all backing away from the mirrors themselves. Festy is picked up, and thrown across the room.

    Being the polite Angel he tries to be (breaking and entering aside), Haruki knocks on the door and calls out.

    "Hey? Anyone there? Phase? Don't make me get Chompy!"

    No one answers the door. A slight rumbling can be heard on the other side.
