|MT EREBUS SCOUTBASE LEVEL TWO
When Bette Noire occupied the planet, she immediately had Companion restart excavation &
construction at Mt. Erebus. Some of the construction (such as new barracks) continued Phalaris
& the scouts plans for the base. Bette added a few more defensive features as storage & refit
centers for service & security bots scattered throughout the level. She also had the bots finish a
tunnel into a cave formed in the mountain. There are plans for more barracks, another mess hall,
training center plus some empty rooms in the future.
|1. AUXILIARY CONTROL CENTER
The subfloor of the command center is a duplication in miniature of the main command
center above & can be treated as a Model/2 computer. The main control center above & the
storage & repair center below can accessed two ways: the enclosed lift shift & the ladder in
the access tunnel. The access tunnel hatch & the lift both open up facing the hatch leading
out of the center for a good reason. Two dual mount gauss rifles (each with a 500 round
magazine) pop out of the ceiling in case of intruders. There another dual gauss rifle (also
with 500 magazines) that pops out of the ceiling above the environmental control center.
The storage cabinets contains tools & parts for repairing or upgrading the computer
systems. The arsenal includes 2 gauss rifles with 40-rd. magazines ( 34 magazines, 9 HEAP,
25 solid); 17 knockout gass grenades, 6 shotguns with 20 rd. mags. ( 44 mags, 23 buckshot,
11 HE, 10 knockout gas ); 6 snub pistols with 18 round mags, ( 52 mags, 22 tranquilizer, 23
solid, 7 HE); 6 cutlasses, & 11 sets of combat armor in various sizes.
This level has been unmodified by Capt. Noire & is still in its pre-1124 state.
2. The security station is split into three sections: A: Security checkpoint with sensors &
two security positions, one inside an room behind an armored window (treat as ballistic cloth
+3) & a secondary position in the open area of the room. The room also has a popout quad
snub SMG unit in the ceiling, each with a 300 round magazine of solid rounds/ B. A security
monitor room that monitors the entire underground area of the complex. From here
Companion (or any authorized sophonts) can initiate lockdown & deploy hidden defense
systems. Two of the permanent garrison are deployed here supplemented by any inport
crewman off Bette's Ships.
This control center operates the 40 missile launch tubes buried in Erebus' southern face
that constitute the base's main defence. Treat the computer system as Model/1.
The lift drops to the missile magazine which currently holds 983 missiles (maximum
capacity 2400 missiles. The control room itself has hatches allowing access to the missile
bay 20 meters below. The site is unmodified from its pre-1124 state.
12. GEOTHERMAL BATH

table, small rectangular table. The washroom (2) consists of a gang shower, 4 toilets, sink, & a
automated laundromat. The nursery (3) was for the children of scout personnel. It consists of a
bedroom with beds of various sizes & a wardrobe; & a outer room which functions as a
playroom/education center with a media center, computer, small table, & a food dispenser.

weapons. Bette's room contains a private Shirihin Irehinaraa shrine & the conference room shrine to
fallen comrades & Kheafatyr's room has a shrine to heroes. The conference room(1) can sit to 20
persons if needed, has full access the base's data & monitors plus a broadcast center. The barrack
rooms have king-size beds(each bed can divide into 3 single beds), full fresher facilities(TL13),
wardrobes, & cabinets for arms & armor. Bette's, Falkhon, & Khea's rooms also have a fully equipped
commo station. Locks are controlled by a mix of electropasses, DNA, & retinal scan. Bette's room also
has an additional psionic lock allowing only a psi to open it & a teleport unit allowing her to teleport to
her room aboard the Aarabella.
7. MEDICAL OFFICE

Aslan 34, Med.-3, Laser-2, Computer-3, Vacc Suit-1, Dagger-2, Bribery-1, Dewclaw-3) is the chief & only
permanent medical officer at the facility. The ward is setup for 12 patients but can be expanded to hold
