"Hold on a sec, we could use it as bait as well, whoever built this thing and sent it against the community might wish to retrieve its remains, so placing it somewhere in the forest and setting up an ambush for its owner might tell us more about why they unleashed it on out community, and perhaps stop them from sending more." She paused briefly at realizing she had referred to the town as "our community" a bit surprised at herself she already thought of herself as one of them, but decided not to make an issue of her phrasing if no one else did.

Carnegie ripped up some grass and used it to clean her hands and knife, then she got up and spoke. "Uhm afore we do dat though, iffin dat head is transmittin sum kajnd a trackin signal what with de blinkin lights n'd all, we oughta crush it first and foremost so's we ain't gettin anymore a those  cumin 'ere...Uhm, Marcus kin yeu...pick up a big rock n'd smash it or sumthin? Ah doubt we woudd be able ta do much wit it anyways. Ah'll go help de others put out the fires now." She said looking to see if anyone else would volunteer, in either case they probably shouldn't be straying too far away from eachother but she couldn't just stand by idle while the village burned down.

Asha looked at her doubtfully for a full couple seconds, then shrugged as she realized it wasn't the craziest thing she'd heard over the past couple months, "Could be jump jets or something to let it boost over high walls and breach upper stories of buildings?" She suggested  peering closer, another thought occurring to her, "We should check out that explosion and fire, it could be another of these things got taken down near the perimeter, or it left some kind of limpet mine in the mans home or remains as a trap?"

She stepped closer and held her light steady, making it easier for Caregie to work on her dissection and analysis of the thing, and to be on hand in case it had any surprises still in store for them.

Inside the Thoracic cavity, two plastic-enclosed cylinders could be found - one with an array of leads extending everywhere, and another with a single set of leads that appeared to have lead to the neck at one point.

Scars from the surgery that implanted these devices was apparent here, but again showed signs of very careful workmanship.

Tilly and her sons saw to Beau or were watching for additional attack.  Outside the sound of townsfolk working at extinguishing small fires could be heard.

btw-   aerial = Antenna

Hi there. Name's Michael, and I've been gaming for a bit over a quarter-century now. I got started with red box Dungeons and Dragons, the one that came with plastic dice you needed to fill in with crayon wax. Moved on to 2e pretty quickly, and spent a lot of my time coming up with house rules to stitch together early netbooks. From there I moved on to GURPS, Unknown Armies, and Feng Shui, which is what kept me going in the early 2000s, though I also had a lot of fun with Mage, Hunter, Wraith, and Werewolf.

These days I don't have a lot of time to play, but I enjoy more narrative systems like Fate and various Apocalypse World hacks.

I make my living as an author, and the idea to turn some of my IPs into rpg settings or systems gnaws at me from time to time, but I don't know if I've got the time for it.

"Uh...g-guys? Ahm thinkin dis doggy majt be air-born. So uh... heads up." She said and worriedly scanned the dark skies, then she bent down and drew her knife to carve the corpse up.

Gonna butcher the corpse then, 9 +7 for survival.

Nothing came of the prodding, so Carnegie looked more closely.

While the dog was obviously outfitted with sub-dermal (mostly) armor and a number of unmarked enclosed boxes, it would seem that most of the electronics were either buried deep enough to require butchering the dog, or had been contained in the now absent head.  What bones were visible had a silvery rigid mesh over them.  Fibers ran from other boxes into the muscles.  The dog appeared to be about half and half robot to organic.  She also noticed scars here and there that were very hard too see - whoever or whatever stitched this dog together had done a very good job.  One box, high up and near the spine, sprouted a long, very thin metal rod.  The rod ran nearly the length of the spine, held close with metal  strips, stopping a few inches before the tail.  Might be an aerial.
