*After 15 Earth minutes the Decepticons Arrived in Boulder City, Nevada, a starter town built by the goverment many centuries ago and boasting the glorious Grand Canyon, the Colorado River, the beautiful Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam.
Built in 1931 the hoover dam, before being completed in 1936, workers had to divert the wild Colorado River away from the construction site by blasted tunnels -- as big as four-lane highways -- right through the canyon walls. For the next five years, the Colorado River gushed through these diversion tunnels while 8,000 workers toiled in the harsh, dry canyon bottom. Amazingly, they completed the dam in less than five years -- ahead of schedule and under budget.
The Hoover Dam is a curved gravity dam. Lake Mead pushes against the dam, it generates more than four billion kilowatt-hours a year -- enough to serve 1.3 million people!, until now. At its base, Hoover Dam is as thick (660 feet) as two footballs fields measured end to end, 726 feet tall. Almost 200 feet taller than the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C. before it's destruction by the decepticons. During peak periods of electrical demands, enough water runs through the generators to fill 15 average-size swimming pools (20,000 gallons each) in one second.
Slowly the great decepticon warship hovered as it flew across Lake Mead..
"Find us somewhere to land Skyburner", said harbringer as he brought up the view of the great dam up onto the screen, "THAT is our target!!"
Skyburner located a spot about two miles away close to a large group of trees and vegatation. [glow=yellow,2,000]"Over there my Lord, it won't provide us with any cover to remain hidden but it does provide a solid attack advantage incase more earth forces show up to try and stop us."[/glow] And Skyburner hoped they did.
[glow=purple,2,300]"Let them try!", raged Harbringer, "They'll be too busy protecting the Ark III we just left, what forces do come will be minimal, they can't be in to places at once! Now take us down, our cloak will protect the ship. We've work to do.."[/glow]
*The great ship landed amonst the thick vegatation and trees forming a dent in the local vegatation, only seen from above. The high commander, Harbringer, gace the order to head to the cargo bay and move out, once outside the decepticons would encounter the thick forest or trees foilage and vegatation they would have to wade through*
ooc: warmonger can try but bot mode is best bet, if he chances it in jeep mode he might be able to but has a good change off bumping into a tree every other minute. It's like epping forest/Endor down there!
[glow=purple,2,300]*Suddenly a great laser blast buzzed past Warmonger's head and levelled several trees and a claear spot ahead. When the jeep-bot looked around he saw Harbringer's gun arm levelled and smoking from the blast..
As Chamberlain transformed into helicopter mode, Skyburner remained in robot mode as they took to the air.
What a perfect time this would be to talk to Torquemada. However Skyburner had the notion that the seeker wouldn't want to, he was being serious ever since he got here, far too serious. She would need to impress him.
Then she began to think, why in the universe was she thinking like this Where did these thoughts come from? Hardly the thoughts of a warrior she concluded.
*Torquemada, Chamberlain and Skyburner arrived at the huge plant as Harbringer and Warmonger continued they're long and boring road trip the long way round especially for the commander with his low speed. Twenty minues on they we're halfway though but Warmonger zipped ahead as the commander tried to keep up
At the dam all was quiet with the odd worker here or there. The huge mile high walls, thick as anything, retained the water betwwn the two mountains, at the bottom on either side were the two processer plants were the workers monitored out put and a gorge of water seperating them..
[glow=blue,2,300]Chamberlain, Skyburner! Check one of those buildingds each down there i shall check out the d**n it'self!"
And within seconds, Torquemada dissappeared out of sight teleporting to the main dam structure between the two Buildings below it and re-appearing instantaniously all the way over there as he stalked the dam..[/glow]

Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
