The pair spend an hour or so circling in a widening gyre. The countryside is flat and, from where they are in the sky, relatively featureless. The Missouri River is a dark ribbon snaking below them, and they follow the river north for some while. The only things they note are as follow:Mercy Quintillano, Third Eye Psi-Ghost
"Let's scout the terrain nearby!" Mercy shouts towards Tiger's ear. "For you to hole up and for any natural barriers! If we've still got juice after, let's see if we can spot the bad guys!"
It's actually pretty solid and sturdy. It doubles as a tornado shelter, so it has got to stand up to some punishment. Probably not a shoulder-fired missile, or a heavy suit of power armor, but it can take some punishment. There's a composting toilet in one corner, and some bottles of water and canned foods.Raven Eagle, Techno-Wizard
Raven asks to take a look at the communal building's cellar before the team heads out with Alan, snapping a couple of pictures. Maybe there's some way to reinforce it, just in case.
The ground is as flat as a fucking pancake, and none of the buildings are strong enough to support Epona's bulk. She does stand guard, though, and around 3:00 am Tiger swoops back down to the ground, Mercy on his back.Epona the Exile, Cyborg Centaur Gunfighter
They might not have taken her on a scouting mission, but Epona wasn't going to take any chances-- she looked for the highest point that she could find that gave a view to the North, and adjusted her vision for the darkness, searching for enemy scouts or raiding parties.
