Lost and Found

DPM-2 stepped down from the stargate's platform into a large room, lit mainly by the still active stargate, and the occasional flash of lightning. The stargate soon shut down, and they stayed where they were, so their eyes could adjust to the dark.
Lt. Black: Wha? Oh.
Major Zargolf: What is it?
Lt. Black: I found the DHD.
Major Zargolf: Oh. Anyone else here?
Brian: Well, there's no one nearby, but there is a lot of interference and this seems to be a big place. This room and the hallway connecting to it are clear, though.
Major Zargolf: Okay, lets move out.
They soon reached another room, which had a raised platform i the center, and 4 hallways branching off of it.
Brian: The hallway to the right seems to end not too far from here.
Major Zargolf: Then we will go that way first
Brad: I don't think I like this place.
Major Zargolf: What is it?
Brad: It seems that something is here, but I can't tell what it is.
Lt. Black: What sort of thing?
Brad: I don't know, but I've never felt anything like it before.
They came to the end of the hall, where it split off into two towers. They randomly picked one, and climbed up the steps to the very top, but due to all the rain, the view up there wasn't any better than the view on the ground.
Brian: I'm still not picking up anything of interest.
Laur: Wait, there seems to be some sort of power buildup near--
There was a flash of light in the room, and when it faded, Laur was nowhere to be seen.
Major Zargolf: What happened?
Brian: It seems the power buildup was a transporter.
Major Zargolf: Yes, but where was he transported?
Brian: i don't know, there's still too much interference.
Lt. Black: Brad, do you know?
Brad: Hold on...
He stood still, and then the view of the tower dissolved, and was replaced with another corridor, similar to the ones they had traveled though to get to the tower, just better lit and with a forcefield closing off access to a room. He stared at it for a few seconds, then he shook his head and the tower reappeared.
Brad: I think he's somewhere on the other side of this complex, but there's some sort of shield and I can't see past it.
They pulled out their weapons and ran back to the room with the raised central platform, then they stopped.
Major Zargolf: Which way?
Brad: Straight ahead.
They began to go toward that hallway, but then there was another flash of light, and someone appeared on the platform.
???: We have a bit of a problem...
Brian: Wait... Tifalka?
To be continued...
Nick: This is the southern part of the city of Marul, as well as part of northern Vartak. The canal connects to Rothen, and also is the extension of the river coming down from the leech lakes.
Nick: And the same area at night.
Nick: At the top you can see downtown Marul, also included in this picture is the Marul high speed rail station, the canal, the Vartak-Marul City Park, and way too many MCN apartments.
Nick: And a less dense area across the canal.
Schulmanator: Most likely it would be a very large number...
zelgadis: Never though about that too much...
Smarty218: Glad you like it!
Leech10: And the backups work.
gabry85: Thanks for the comment!
