"I'll pass on waving, " said Jerome as he covered Blue during his work. 

Jerome didn't have a problem with cyberware - its what kept him alive after all, but seeing these _things_. He was used to his machines - all mechanical, no organics, no soul, nor ever to get one. These things - robots wrapped in flesh, were monsters, undead.  A blasphemy.  But, he had to grit his teeth and bear it.  He had to.  He needed the money.  Crusades are not won by the dead.

He directed his flying eye well away from the - things - going in wider and wider circles to watch for incoming threats.

"Uhm, Jerome, there's no sign of a signal or network, these things aren't projecting anything either. How did Adeaze control them? Magic?"
Blue was well aware of the irony of the statement, being a psyker.
"I can't do any control magic, all I can do is ask them nicely." The neo-ethnic smirked, and turned to the group of droids. "Now, I don't mean to impose, but if you would be so nice, and assist us? I would need you adorable children - yes, you, you, and you lot - to move to the comfy storage pod, we're going on a ride and don't want you to bump your cute little warheads. You, ladies, could you assist us in loading the goods from the shuttle into our fancy tank as well as your condition allows, and then find a comfortable spot therein? And don't be scared of Jerome and Joao, they're just big and huggable if you get to know them. Jerome, Joao, please smile and wave. Thank you! Just follow my lead, and we'll have all the stuff loaded in no time."

Blue proceeded to pilfer the goods that were the whole reason for coming here in the first place, then hauled other crates, while being as instructional as a self-centered nutcase could ever be. This didn't prevent the neo-ethnic from teasingly bending over with a crate or whatever when Joao had a good view of that glorious behind. A little teasing would do him good.

After we've finished loading, I'll also check whether (the rest of) Adeaze has anything cool in her pockets.

Backtracking

Adeaze opened the droid pod and let the mobile mines out. They soft imprinted on her and did what she said. There was no command code, just them following blend in and behave protocols. They could possibly be hacked, but they are still droids and can be interacted with.

There are no active networks other than whatever smart gear they are carrying

Ah, the way they were portrayed made me think that Adeaze controlled them by an implant or something. As they were completely still, they seemed simply cut off from commands like a marionette from its strings, and I didn't think they'd respond to normal verbal stimuli at all (it seems valadaar had a similar impression, not interacting with them).

As for my last post, I assume there were no networks Blue could interact with?

You guys have taken the shuttle and your loot is listed above.

What you do now is up to you, and the flesh wrapped droids are going to look to someone for leadership, and aren't going to do anything unless they are threatened. If they are threatened they will most likely cower while one of the fleet footed children will go rushing for an explosive hug.

The droids can talk if anyone wants to interact with them.

They are also WMDs, so that's worth something

Jerome shook his head and got up as well.  He retrieved one of his little skuttling blastbots and powered it up.  He set it to manual targeting, linked to his spotting laser.

He followed blue, hoping none of the kids thought he was as approachable as ol' skullface was.

"Exactly, captain Arjan ma'am, much appreciated."
Blue was spurred to action by her decisive prompt. Oh, that woman. I'd love to have *her* tell me what to do. On the right occasion, with the right lighting. Oh, I'd be her b!tch.
"I'll take a look, cover me."
Blue cautiously moved out, activating the wrist computer and looking for any network that may be projected by either shuttle or anything in the vicinity - there may be a clue, or something that may respond to the simple icebreakers and decryption software the computer could bring to bear. Blue was no netrunner, but skilled enough to meddle with poorly secured systems.

Ever on the lookout for any further explosive children, the neo-ethnic approached the shuttle, looking for any control tools for ... whatever these inhuman entities were. If any would-be suicide bombs were to approach, it would be child's play to sweep them aside with the proverbial flick of a telekinetic wrist, especially with how the lake hummed with power.

"Good harem, don't mind me, I am just passing by"
Search for any control for the presumed pleasure bots, look around, and if possible look at what's left of Adeaze. There may be a remote or something. Execute self-defense if needed.

The main shuttle from the arco, aside from having most of it's engines blow out is intact, and it is your target. The insides have been badly shaken up by the crash, but it is largely intact.

Contents include:

A droid delivery pod, opened, and empty. (12 unit capacity)
ten plastic totes containing medical supplies, food supplies, and other consumable goods. Blue's meds, and then some, are all present
two large military crates of weapons. Assorted.
Two large crates of art and luxury items
A residential/Civilian polyforge - a 110 kg machine one cubic meter in size
A residential/Civilian reducer - a recycling machine that turns trash and raw materials into polyforge fuel
three dead people, casualties of the crash, pilot, copilot, and a second passenger to Adeaze.
 
5 pregnant women, 4 children (under 6 years of age), 5 infants. They are cymeks, organic bodies, but machine brains and control systems

Guys, especially valadaar - Blue is a) off the meds, b) actually submissive in the presence of such two splendid examples of masculinity. Could you please take initiative? (also, I have zero effing clue what to do)

@ Scras - which of the shuttles looks like it carries our goods? The one where the stranger things are camped, right?
