Don't the Ussari consider vodka an essential resource?

Hmm. Maybe that’s why they’ve been so cranky lately...

@Geschosskopf Due to the unique nature of Kerbalism and the ability to turn off its LS system if you wanted to, it may indeed be possible to add Vodka to and remove Water from the LS resources. :wink: 

Of course I hear this right after I’ve gone through all the trouble of making Rald wet. :rolleyes:

Year 7, Day 315...

The crew is now leaving the lush, green slightly squishy lowlands behind, heading southwest and ever higher. Barely past 1500m attitude, there's simply not enough air to breathe any more, so the Raldbase is buttoned up and pressurized. No more hanging one's arm out the open window and doing the hand thing. Haylotte is devistated. I am not!

Spoiler

 

q5ojOBT.png

And then there's Lodvin. He's been tied up in the back and sedated, as the cadre press on into the high Raldean DEE-YOO-EN-EE-ESS's.

I heard that! 

Sorry, Lodvin.

I am not a dunce!

. . .

No, Lodvin. No you're not.

bUm1xOC.png

 

Even here amongst the wind and the sand I HATE SAND! there's still time for science. It's so sciencey, they apparently forgot to turn the CO2 scrubbers back on. That might explain the headaches, blurred vision, and auditory hallucinations.
SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND!

e2bubus.png

 

Probably. Or maybe they put Lodvin's sedatives into the air handlers again instead of his green mush. Nothing surprises me with this bunch, anymore. HEY!
I'm sure it's probably not at all related to them drawing ever nearer to Rald's mysterious Ancient Airport... and beyond that... the Ancient City.

i2A1ILA.png

 

Well, it's sure flat enough here for an airport. But there's absolutely nothing that actually, well, looks like one. But the ScanSat insists this is the Ancient Airport. The crew press on, reporting nothing out of the ordinary except an odd craving for Airline Kuisine and a living shadow in the icebox.

hM2hapL.png

Wait, what?

 

Ahem... what they do discover, however, is this odd pyramid looming above the flat plain. Possibly the Ancient Control Tower? This worth a slight detour...

sC0wIkx.png

Also, they report the shadow in the icebox has taken control of the base and is going that way anyway.

 

Wait, what?

 

Attempts to climb the pyramid proved... unsuccessful.

LFi5Jbf.png


About this time, Triti finally lost her temper and in a very calm and rational way, explained to the shadow that if it did not get back into the icebox this instant there would be wailing and gnashing of teeth. The shadow attempted to explain that it did not, in fact, have any teeth, and Triti responded with an angelic smile that she would be more than happy to acquire some first from the shadow's dear ol' mum at which point the shadow very quickly left. Triti further explained to the walls that if she heard so much as a mouse fart out of any shadow for the duration of the trip, she would--

Well, some things are just unfit to print.

 

But, we're here, anyway, or at least, they are, so they might as well have a look. Lodvin is unbound and dispatched, due to the fact that there was real concern the pyramid would simply run away if Triti went outside and Lodvin is the only other pilot.

IXggtU2.png

 

The pyramid rises over a kilometer above the surrounding terrain. There's no sign of any control tower, but even Lodvin is impressed with the view.

1XAz8xa.png

 

Hey, I can see my--!

Nope, that's a rock.

Hey, I can see my--! Nope, that's a rock, too.

Careful, Lodvin. There's something... off, about that place.

Are you kidding? This is so cool! And like, there's no sand up here! Woohoo!

Seriously, we're getting some unusual--

Wendy, I can fly!

WHO'S WENDY?!?

Lodvin, you might want to--

I'm king of the world! I'm--

Uh, oh.

Well...

That looked painful.

I'm sure he'll be fine.

So, while they pour poor Lodvin out of his suit, the crew presses on ever westward, higher and higher... towards the foreboding Ancient City.

It's probably nothing to worry about.

And a special thanks to @Just Jim for help with photoshop. :D

You know, if you scroll your last post really fast, it actually plays like a movie.  Or at least one of those old coin-operated, hand-cranked, card-flipping things from the 1890s.  Very cool :wink:

I'm sure Lodvin will be fine with Triti nursing him back to health.  Probably.

So, is Lodvin going to look like Gregory Peck in "Moby Dick", with a cool scar and a streak of white hair from the lightning?  And be all crazy and obsessive from it?  I mean, more than usual :wink:

Year 7, Day 316...

Out of the gloom and clouds it materializes, like... some gloomy, materializing thing. At this altitude, the ever-present clouds are a constant annoyance. Wait, that's a bit redundant, isn't it? Anyways, it's the mysterious Ancient City.

Spoiler

 

IHQlQPv.png

 

It's... really hard to get a feel for the size of this thing, even when the clouds break for a moment....

JKZPufb.png

 

Those are walls over 800 meters high, with lines far too straight to be any kind of natural occurrence. Our orbiting RaldSCAN probe has compiled this map:

8cDhPGd.png?1

It's absolutely huge. From the crew's first encounter near the southeast corner, it's a 132 kilometer trek to what can only be the front gate. And we can already see... something... inside...

 

Incredible. A quick, back-of-the-drink-stained-cocktail-napkin calculation reveals that the walls must have originally been nearly two kilometers high, at over a hundred meters thick!

cPPiDVi.png

And also, "Call me, 867-5309 SWAK." Wait, what? Who's napkin is this, anyway?!? Vlad!!!

 

At any rate, they've long since crumbled into rubble piles. But I'm sure most pressing on the crew's minds as they enter the gate, is: what on Kerbin Gael Rald were those walls keeping out, anyway?

ncRJ9vT.png

Actually, I'm hungry.
Me too.
Same here.
Snacks!
*rattling icebox sounds*

Ugh. Fine, fine.

 

So, after pausing for lunch, Triti points the Raldbase between what the science teams has dubbed, "Los Pilares de la Muerte."

g2ElAVk.png

Really, guys? Isn't that a bit melodramatic? Besides, they're not really very... pillary, any more.
Odd, tho, the living shadow in the icebox wasn't hungry. It actually looked sort of... scared...
I'm sure it's nothing. Anything that lived here obviously died eons ago.

 

Wow... that is a big hole...

kiiPgW1.png

Thank you, Doctor Haylotte, for that incredibly scientific description.

 

But, yes, it is rather a big hole. It seems the hole in the data we were seeing was, well, a hole.

PCJO0V1.png

 

How deep do you think it is?
I see water...
Um... what if they weren't keeping something out...
What if the walls were to keep something... IN..?

BF295rP.png

 

What do you think, Lodvin?

uTAy1Cr.png

 

. . .

Lodvin?
W... what's wrong with his face?

Q8o6Y1c.png

 

BEHOLD, HE RISES!
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKK!!!

32BJzFw.png

EVEN NOW HIS FEET TROD UPON THE GROUND!
THE PROMISED ONE, ANCIENT OF DAYS, IN HIS HANDS SHALL BE THE BEGINNING AND END OF ALL THINGS!
IN HIS OWN LAND, HE SHALL BE OUTCAST, SCION OF THE FELLED TREE,
THE NATIONS SHUDDER AT HIS COMING, LIKE THE UNFETTERED DAWN HE SHALL BLIND THEM!
HE SHALL TEAR APART ALL TIES THAT BIND, AND CLOTHE THE PEOPLE IN SACKCLOTH AND ASHES!
BY HIS MIGHT EVERY TOWER SHALL FALL, HE SHALL CAST DOWN THE HAUGHTY FROM THEIR COMFORT!
HE SHALL UNLEASH THE FOUR UPON THE WORLD, AND BREAK IT BY HIS PASSING.

 

*GAK*
CK5nqDw.png

Well, that was creepy.


Um... Lodvin...?

Lodvin...?

I'm sure he's fine.

So anyways, guys... the science team says you've recorded some really good data, but you're about to pass below the horizon from Gael and the signal is getting fuzzy, so they're requesting you spend the night in the city so the data can be downlinked. Sound good?

. . .

Guys?

. . .

Er... ladies?

.

.

.

OH, HELLS NO!
FLARP THAT!
I DON'T THINK SO!

hX5Aat0.png

C'mon, it's just one night...

 

Put the hammer down!
How fast does this thing go?
Exit, stage left!

Somebody grabbed Lodvin, right...?

Did we really, truly, EVER want to know that?  Surely not even the staff of Ussari gulags want that info lying around to use as an instrument of torture.  It would likely do more damage to the torturers than the tortured.

That said, you've obviously found a cenote, a sacrificial well.  I suggest pushing Lodvin in.  The ancient alien gods obviously want him but are too weak these days to take him themselves.  I think that lightning bolt was their best shot.

Year 7, Day 318...

With Lodvin once again tied up and sedated in the back recovering from his little prophetic out-of-mind excursion, the crew leaves the high dunes behind and heads back toward the sea. They only venture as far as the unexplored Riverlands, though, not quite low enough to open the windows again. Haylotte is crushed
I am not!

Spoiler

 

Sjnmhno.png

 

Picturesque vistas aside, the crew is once again on a mission. The RaldSCAN has been detecting... anomalous signals near one of the deep delta channels.

paspVpW.png

As feared, communication is spotty here. Gael is now well below the horizon, and we only have direct communication when the RaldSCAN is overhead to relay.
For now, the objective looms out of a boulder field.

 

This is... unexpected. It is undoubtedly some sort of structure, not possibly of Kerbal origin! Arcane markings on the surface almost appear to spell out a word...

gyAS1fu.png

What's a squid?

 

The crew is advised to proceed with caution. After Lodvin's their experiences at the small pyramid, and the Ancient City, this anomaly no doubt demands a slow and methodical--

I'MA GO POKE IT WITH A STICK!

No, Triti! You saw what happened to Lodvin! Don't you dare--!

 

Poke.

qCDzWUO.png

 

Pokepoke.

Nscga2P.png

 

Yeah, take that, thing! I claim this spot for me! Now I need a lawn chair and some snacks!

Uh, Triti, if I were you I wouldn't--

Oh, hush!

But it's--

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!

iN8brOU.png

 

Triti! Oh no! Did it..? Are you... you?

sSXc3zV.png

I slipped. It's slippery. Squids are slippery.

Oh, for flarp's sake...

 

Well, moving on, we need to address this communications issue.
Getting back to the whole "space" part of this "space program," another Mallard-D is dispatched to Rald.

ec2P7fq.png

 

On board are a trio of lightweight relay commsats.

uRV3xsR.png

 

After many sleepless nights going over complicated mathematics, the engineering team nudges them into perfectly regular, evenly spaced medium-altitude orbits.

qwBVRZW.png

...only to discover that this perfect orbit puts each satellite just below the horizon relative to the other two, preventing them from relaying with each other and leaving only a slightly-less-narrow communication window to the RaldBase every few hours. Though now that we have some minimal bandwidth, we can--

Nope. Vlad's already filled it up with a que of bizarre tentacle cartoons to antagonize the RaldBase crew with.

 

Maybe it's time for the science team to begin working on that long-range one-Kerbal interplanetary mission. Sooner or later, probably through force of pure will and spite, Triti is going to make it back here... Vlad my need a long vacation. And the distraction would benefit us as well...

Year 7, Day 342...

The science team is becoming more and more concerned about the marooned crew's mental state, and quite frankly so is everyone else. But, there's still science to be gained, so instead of simply bringing them home with the orbiting return ship, we're just sending them more crap instead.

Spoiler

 

PEvlVPu.png

I'm sure this can't possibly come back to haunt us later.

 

Here, our latest care package brake into orbit high above Rald's mighty rift valley.

iXW2V1u.png

 

Once the orbits align the MUS is detached and the aeroshell begins its descent!

ffBEx1W.png

 

Orbital velocity is so low at Rald that entry heating is only a minor concern, so the engineering team has abandoned heat shields altogether in favor of an asbestos-lined fairing with stabilizing airbrakes.

FvGxXmA.png

They've been coughing a lot. Maybe we should get the VAB a humidifier or something, maybe some nice candles.

 

Drogue chutes deploy once subsonic...

boatHzA.png

 

Followed by separation of the aeroshell...

Qsb0hF2.png

 

... and backshell...

WZkuVmx.png

 

...and the care package is successfully on the mains with gear deployed! 

QtPId5O.png

This mission was a further exploration into fully automated EDL sequencing, which may be useful in landing on other planets. If we ever put this Rald nonsense behind us.

 

And.... down safely. Only a hundred kilometers off target. Again.

LV51U7Q.png

 

After an all-night slog, the Raldbase pulls up the next morning.

knPUmD7.png

 

Jencine is back on duty, starting with cutting off the extra bits she forgot to remove before...

6Tjfh8R.png

 

But with heavy lifting like this, Haylotte is called out, too. leaving Lodvin and Triti alone to...
On second thought, we're sending Triti out instead. HEY! Gonna need some muscle anyway. oh, ok

Woohoo, wrestling dive, lookout below!

o182vFs.png

You've got to be kidding me.

Ow...

HFKUtV8.png

 

Moving on...

With Triti's competent but slightly sore help, the first module is moved into place...

1SoPq3d.png

...from several meters away and without actually touching it. I've stopped questioning at this point. Smile and nod, smile and nod...

 

Followed by the second module...

KZkBJ8n.png

 

And lastly the new communication mast is snapped into place.

LuXI1DI.png

 

Then it's just some housekeeping to remove the unneeded bits and replace a failed ISRU unit.

2AnRSQV.png

And speaking of housekeeping, the crew has apparently reached an... agreement... with the living shadow in the icebox. After some tense negotiations, it has been resolved that with the newly increased living space, the shadow will have free reign of the base (except for the command cupola) in exchange for cleaning out the lavatories, since no one wants to do that, and will henceforth be known as Stinky.

But thanks to what even Triti recognized as some very shrewd negotiating on Stinky's part, it will not, in fact, have to clean out the nasty hair clogs from the space-shower drain. That responsibility will remain with Lodvin and Jencine, as they are the primary contributors. I DO NOT HAVE CHEST HAIR! Um, actually neither do I...

Well it didn't get there by magic...

 

Moving on, the new and improved Raldbase moves on, once again leaving a pile of junk in its wake and ballooning to over 40 tonnes. The science team hopes that the expanded living space will reduce the disturbingly rapid rise of the crew's stress levels now that it's gone from "cramped" to "modest," and stave off any possible descent into batpoop craziness. Stinky ate my candy bar!
Yeah, sort of like that.

F5PQhYX.png

We're expecting this new renovation to float even better than the last one, so in recognition of the Raldbase's new go-anywhere capability and cobbled-together nature, we're officially renaming it the Platypus, and--

 

What?
What to you mean, that name's already taken?
Jim? Jim who?
Well it can't be @Just Jim, it's gotta be Jim... Bob... or Jim Beam, or Jim... something!
 

No, we are not calling it the FrankenFrog! Maybe it's the crew down here I should be worried about...

Zero. :D Kerbal Joint Reinforcement is my friend. I’ve had .625 meter nodes holding together 500 ton rockets, and only use struts for cosmetics anymore. @Angel-125‘s Buffalo floaties there have already taken some big hits with no issues. More weight seems to help over the terrain seams, too.
