Mahmoud lifts his head groggily, trying to make sense of the flood of data flowing through it.

OOC: Using "rolldice" on Linux:
(roll)4 + (cool)5 = 9 + (luck)8 = 17.

Ok. That's enough for Mahmoud to break contact before he dies and goes insane (note the and there). Mahmoud was in danger of losing his conciousness inside the tree. He takes 12 points of damage, and needs to make a stun/shock save at -2. Thats' over and above whatever damage he takes from the fall.

The word "Chimaera" has a... density to him. There is an enormous amount of information encoded into his brain and associated to the word. He does not at this time have much conscious access to it, but it is affecting his mind; much like trying not to think about something makes you think about it.

On the plus side, he now knows that he has two abilities outside the norm. The ability to link to machines and the ability to affect others flesh through will. He also knows that all of the others have similar abilities except Henry. Henry is something else yet again from human.

You can make an INT+d10 roll for Mahmoud to decode the information he got from the tree.

(Is the 12 points reduced to 10 by BT?)

Mahmoud groans and rolls and thrashes about.

(roll)2 - (wound level)2 - (penalty)2 = -2

(Overacting effects 2 - Mahmoud crumples like a rag doll.

(int)10 + (roll)5 = 15

Visions of dragons and of goats and of lions dance through Mahmoud's head, each individually expanding into his vision and then retreating again, and yet all part of a single whole, part of a simple truth that he cannot completely grasp as pain wracks his body. As his heart strains within his chest, his brain on fire, his delirium drowning him in a sea of insanity, Mahmoud cries out to Allah to save him, to show mercy upon his soul.

Flames consume his body as he slowly freezes to death. A billion bees sting him all over his flesh as he is drowned in sweet soothing honey. A snake bites him as he consumes its tail. He becomes a supernova period at the end of a sentence.

No, the BTM doesn't reduce the damage... it would be fair to say that your own mind did the damage.

That makes your stun/shock save; Mahmoud is hurt but functional physically. Not so much mentally, but...

He gathers the following:

The tree is called a Sinner Tree.

It is a machine with two purposes. It cleans poisons and toxins from the environment and destroys mutants. The poisons and toxins are either rendered harmless or stored in diamond hard containers. Mutations seem to have a somewhat more... flexible definition; essentially unstable or damaged genetics seem to cause the release of a toxin specifically designed to destroy that particular DNA molecule. The toxin essentially just turns that particular life off like a switch after putting it to sleep.

It has made toxin bundles for each member of the group. It will not deploy them unless damaged.

There are five other Sinner trees within it's range of detection.

It will multiply as long as there are toxins and mutants within range, and when they are gone it will die.

Mahmoud simply cannot imagine a technology that would accomplish this. It is in the same order as the Ancients in Stargate; except it's biological technology.
