Comic description

Alice Welch wakes up alone under a red alert, with an ominous message from her co-worker. What's going on in this lab? And why is everything suddenly trying to kill her?

Mechanically Inclined is an interactive pixel art comic updating at least once a day, unless real life gets in the way.

You suggest that, while you're waiting for Pythia to get back to you, you should try and time how long it takes the drones to go from one end of the hall to the other. Taiki nods and pulls his phone from his Tim, opening up the clock app and pulling up the stopwatch.

You all wait quietly until you hear footsteps on the other side of the door. Once they pause, and start moving again, Taiki starts the stopwatch.

It feels like an eternity until you hear a second set of footsteps. Given what you know about the patrol route, you know that the drone you started timing should be at the other end of the hall at this point. The second drone walks away, and a few minutes later, you hear the first one come back again.

Taiki stops the clock.

Looking at it, it seems like it takes them about eight minutes to make a full circuit.

Trin considers the timing, rubbing their cheek. "If we are wanting to get both of them," they say, "we will be having four minutes. Our best shot is likely being to follow one as it leaves here."

You ask Trin how long it usually takes for a drone to do a sweep and report back. Trin shrugs. "Depends on what they are sweeping. We should be having enough time for me to try and spoof some signal."

You nod, and turn to Taiki. You ask him if he can see a good place to stash the two drones once you take them out.

He checks the cameras, and nods. "There are a few open doors along the hall. There's one close enough to where they pass each other that we should be able to drag them into."

Now all that's left is to wait for Pythia to get back to you about the cameras.

Get a feel for the timing on the drones. Silence the door.
Scope out an ambush spot and place to "hide the body"...

You're about to say something, right before Trin shushes you and Taiki again. A moment later, you hear the footsteps of the second drone approach, linger, and then leave again.

Once Trin gives the all-clear, you suggest that Taiki should try interacting with the bird. He gives you a confused look, before shrugging and poking the bird on the screen. You and Trin peer over his shoulders to see what happens.

The bird hops up and down, and then a reply window opens.

Taiki just kind of stares at it for a moment.

"You know," he says, "I feel kind of stupid, now."

You ask him why.

He smiles faintly. "Birds are messengers. In basically every human culture since the dawn of human culture," he says, "I should've realized."

While you're on the subject, you ask him what kind of bird he thinks it is.

He shrugs as he types out a message asking Pythia if they can help loop the cameras. "I'm not an ornithologist, and the bird is pixellated, but if I had to take a guess, I'd say it's a raven."

"Why?" Trin asks.

"Just the silhouette of it, really," he says, "it could also be a crow, it can be kind of hard to tell them apart. Though, ravens are more commonly messengers in myths and stuff, so I'm kind of leaning that way."

"You are liking myths?" Trin asks.

"Yeah," he says, "my parents loved telling me stories about all the weird demons and stuff in our culture when I was younger. Like a yokai that takes the form of a horse leg that hangs from a tree and kicks people that walk under it. It got me interested in other sorts of myths."

A... horse leg.

"Yup."

In a tree?

"Yyyyup," he says, "It's called an uma-no-ashi. It's sole purpose is literally just to kick people in the head when they walk by. And that's not even the weirdest one. Japanese myths -- especially yokai -- can be just... bizarre."

Trin looks enthralled by this. "What was leading your people to be creating such a thing? It is having no purpose, except to kick heads?"

Taiki grins. "If you think uma-no-ashi is weird, you'll have to remind me to explain shirime to you sometime."

Taiki's Tim dings, and he checks it. "It's Pythia," he says, showing the two of you the message.

"Well," says Trin, "that is good, then. I am hoping Pythia can be managing."
