[Game] Party to Treason
Eridan has a plan! This is how it goes.

First, he tries to set up solar panels, but this doesn't work out so great. The sky in Allfield is perpetually overcast and frequently rainy, so the panels work at only a small fraction of efficiency at best. The towers sputter and don't function great. The generator ends up being the source of most of the power for the towers. Climbing the moutainside is also a whole issue. Directly climbing the cliff face and avoiding the roads is fairly slow, but it does have more shelter than the road, so he doesn't get soaking wet yet, but he accidently cuts his finger on a piton due to lack of mountaineering experience. He then reaches the four towers, each nigh-on two thousand feet tall, and manually climbs up all of them via the rain-slick stairs and cold metal ladders. It takes hours, and he's soon soaked, but the towers are at least undamaged. He then heads down and slowly (due to severe pain in every body part from the stairs) makes his way to the office, picks the lock, and puts the printouts in the sylladex. They stay reasonably dry, apart from the wet handprint on the edge where he grabbed them.

1. "I think one of Shinji and Rei's missions involved drawing power from all of Tokyo to power a giant sniper rifle. Why not try that? Drain enough power from the city to jam those signals to hell and back!"

2. "Oh, come ON, you're just BEGGING me to use my Eva, aren't you? If Unit 01, a prototype model, is perfectly suited for combat on mountains, then Unit 02, the first REAL model should be even better! And don't think a little rain is gonna loosen my grip, Eva's can grip onto things like their lives depend on it!"

3. "Again, my Eva! Climbing is nothing new to it, it's climbed out of a boiling hot volcano once! I'm sure it can handle a little tower!"

4. "Uhhh…flick the door open with my Eva, and make a bolt for the plans! If I die, I'll be dying for my country, and that's a hell of a way to go out!"

1. I can find you lot a nice, fat, juicy, fast river and make a dam with turbines to give power. Trust me! Oh wait, be sure to have backup wind turbines both at the dam and the array itself, and backup generators, yesiree, backup generators! Haha!

2. [starts actually floating] Ok and? I can just WOOSH up towards there, of course! (Bandu will basically float above the path and fly down the path whilst tracking where it goes. Chaos God powers, baby!)

3. [starts floating REALLY high] WHAT'S UP GAMERS! WE'RE GONNA BE FLYING REAL HIGH THIS TIME! (Bandu will basically float all the way to the top of the towers. Again, Chaos God powers, baby!)

4. (BANDU PROCEEDS TO FRIGGIN TELEPORT RIGHT INTO THE OFFICE, COMPLETELY BYPASSING THE LOCKED DOOR WITH THE TELEPORT, GREETS HIMSELF A BIT, FETCHES THE PRINTOUTS, THEN TELEPORTS BACK. NO JOKE.)

1. Wind turbines! There's gotta be some wind up there!

2. I have this jetpack feature on my wheelchair, so... yeah! It's still untested, though... But I'll give it a shot! WALKING up the mountain? I'm crippled, that might be an issue!

3. Rope! I'll use rope as a harness, slowly tying up and securing the rope to the tower harness... And then I'll be up there in no time!

4. ... I wonder... Can we just... BUST through the door? Like... here's my idea! Blow off the hinges of the door using bombs! The door will come off and we can get the data! Minimal... ish damage, too! In and out! They'll never know!
I don't understand any of this... I'm in a world of complete insanity...

First, Asuka has a plan! It occurs!

First, shutting off everywhere else's power to get power to the array! Redirecting the power works alright, though getting the power to the array proves tricky when it's discovered there's nothing connecting it to the main grid. A power relay station has to be installed along with wires to get the power there. Also, the people are annoyed at the blackouts, and can't exactly hear the patriotic things when they can't turn on the radios and TVs at all. Climbing the mountain in a giant mech works great, but when climbing the towers, it causes them to bend and sway and nearly fall. They don't fall, but there's severe structural warping. They're certainly in danger of falling now. Smashing into the office elicits a furious tirade from Lanthanide, who complains that that was "only temporarily closed" and "Ah didn't ask you to demolish the place!" but the printouts are grabbed.

Next, Bandu's plan.

Building a dam proves tricky when the nearest river capable of running the array is several hundred miles away. Dam construction is slow, and hooking up the dam grid to the array will take months at minimum. The wind turbine array is set up relatively slowly on the mountainside too, due to difficulty transporting the supplies, ultimately leading to the backup generators needing to handle most of the power providing, which isn't ideal. Following the path a few feet off the ground does prevent slipping injuries, though Bandu does get extremely wet. Just levitating up to the top of the towers however causes problems. The high winds thousands of feet up blow him into the lattice, causing severe bruising. He does make it to the top though. Teleporting into the offices to grab the printouts works out quite well, however.

Then, Monaca has her plan!

Wind turbines, the standard solution! They're fairly slow to construct, due to the logistics issues, obviously. Without a backup generator, the array won't even turn on beyond survival settings for days. Using a jetpack to get up the mountainside causes severe second degree burns across Monaca's exposed skin as the high temperatures of the boosters remain incredibly close to her for minutes. She tries to use a rope to get up the towers, only to find that not only will that be difficult, considering her professed status of "in a wheelchair" and her recently applied status of "second degree burns", as well as the fact that climbing the tower with a rope and harness requires getting the rope and harness attached to the tower in the first place, which requires climbing the tower to attach the rope... so ultimately she gets soaked in the rain trying to use a makeshift grappling hook. It takes hours just to get up one of the towers, and it's already dark by the time she's done with all four towers. Blowing the door of the office off its hinges works fine, but she's soaking wet and in a lot of pain from second degree and friction burns, so she gets wet and bloody handprints all over the printouts.

Bandu teleports back into the room, slumped over on the floor, letting out one, deadpan, deep, Fuck! over his complete miscalculations on the PATS and the resulting injuries. Atleast the printouts went smoothly.

Eridan is just kinda... groaning in pain after all of that.
Stupid doomed timeline...

Monaca emerges into the room...

Could be worse... Nothing a few pickles can't...

Monaca looks at her now bloody hands...

Nevermind. Can someone get me some toilet paper so that I can wrap my hands in?

Brain just looks nervously at the transmitter pack and wires he accidentally damaged on the third tower...

Alright, let's see if the last two of y'all come up with better ideas. Ah jus' need CATS and Chikujoin to chime in with their plans that hopefully get the place online an' functional, then we can hang mickey an' toss in a replacement.
