"Hey if anyone deserves to be slower its me" Powerblock said over the com. He drove a few feet from quickshot keeping his mirrors on the skys and his sensors hot to watch for enemy ambushes. Slipstream just drove along almost laughing at the boys for being itchy to go faster. "Well so far nothing on my sensors and all the weapons are still green Sir." Slipstream said to her boss bots behind her as they drove along. She of all people knew that one of her weapons would most likely malfunction since it was a projectile weapon instead of a beam weapon.
As the Autobots made the last exit out of Iacon, Omega Convoy, Grand Magnus, Highway, Blastback, Retroblazer, Powerblock, Slipstream, Quickshot and Air Raid above, an eerie silence descended over them.
Once, the former capital would be filled with fighting and explosions, but today nothing, only the deafening silence and sound of their own engines..
Central grumbled, sitting next to one of the consoles, boredly tapping over a few keys "They request a hacker, they get one, and they leave me here for -base operations-? Ugh." He perked up when he heard the call, leaning in to press down a key and speak "Central here. I'm the only one here. What can I do for you, Grand Magnus?"

Finally, some work! And not to shabby of a job either. "Right! Blueprints, blueprints..." Fingers flew over the console before him, the screen blipping through hundreds of blueprints, before it came up with the appropriate one for that building. The screen rotated as it located the autobot's signals, and he began working at ways to get them out. "Okay, got them up...Lets see..You've got a few options. There is a truck depot twenty meters south of you, you can bust through the doors there, or you can take the next corridor for ten meters, and blast a hole in the thinnest portion of the wall. I can come up with more choices in a few minutes, but these blueprints are very, very old.
Central rubbed his arm some as he keyed over afew commands. He shook his head "The wall is weak enough as it is - besides, I can't get any detailed scans of that area, interference from local battles. Just blast through with whatever weapons you have set to either a wide area, or a narrow-band effect, depending on how stealthy you want to be, or how fast you want to get out, respectivly"
Wireless, this is Grand Magnus again. How far is the Autobot temple once we break through this wall?
++ COMM ++
Central sat up against the console, flipping through the display maps, before sitting back "An (Hour good? I'm not sure of the dimensions, so I'll say an hour) Hour, if you're booking it. I'll bring the defenses online if you're coming in hot."
"Negative, we'll bring the defenses online once we're online, we can handle the drones", reported Grand Magnus, "In the meantime i need you to head to the Tagon Heights, and find out how that mystery energy field is doing and how far it's grown. Then come find us at the Temple where you'll rendezvous with us, is that clear?"
OOC: Now we'll see how much you've been keeping up and what you've read so far from the various threads! And it'll get you out and about!
Please give it 2 - 3 days before replying in the "Ground Zero (Tagon H) - CAUTION: HIGHLY DANGEROUS." thread, to allow for travelling. Unless you want to rp your journey, in which case please post in the "The Road To Tagon Heights (And Iacon)" thread when ready. I'll leave it up to you.
Central stood up, rubbing his head. Great, just great. They were already under fire again, he was being sent after some 'energy barrier' that he hadn't even known was there! First days on the job and he was already having issues. He grabbed his kit, stepping out of the HQ, tapping on a panel on his arm. He nodded when he got the return signal - the HQ was wired into his security panel now, he could remotely operate some of its functions. Not many - he hadn't finished retrofitting the base - but enough that he could get the defenses shooting at someone if they chased him back. "On it, boss." With that, he transformed to his alt mode, a 'shockwave' of dust spreading out from where he was a moment ago - his speedy alt form would help in this situation
Slowly the Autobot convoy crossed the desolate plains of Altihex, even at the halfway point to their entrance they could see the energy dome slowly consuming the Tagon heights. It would only be a matter of time before it began crossing the borders of Altihex itself.
With a fear of the energy dome spreading across Cybertron, the battleground for once, was quiet and deserted. Panic must have gripped Cybertronians across the planet. Slowly they reached the edge of the Altihex plains, before which a flat circular structure, only just a few inches higher than the ground it was only.
Grand Magnus stepped on the circular plate as a blue energy lit it from underneath, within an instant Magnus was transported below, his molecular atoms scrambled in a beam of light as he seemingly disappeared into thin air, only to be transported below to the underground tunnels...
Slipstream moved along as Powerblock Halled Retroblazer on his roof. "Are you sure you dont want me to carry his dead weight Powerblock?" Slipstream asked as they drove. "Yeah im sure you dont have the energy to carry a heavy load yet much less your self to HQ." Powerblock stated as as he was keeping up ok "How much further Grand Magnus? Retro's startin to feel abit heavy on my shocks back here." Powerblock chimed in on a private channel to Grand Magnus.
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!
