Who: The Man, rescue party members and the escaped prisoners from this thread.
Where: Neverland Prison.
When: Following on from this thread.
Open: To those listed above. Trapped prisoners are welcome to post their own shouting threads, etc. during the commotion.
After his brief disappearance, the man filtered back into the jail. It was quite the commotion. There were shouts coming from people within and without the cells, as those outside moved hurriedly to pick the locks. Some cells had already been opened, and those responsible had moved on to their next targets, whilst others were still struggling to unlock theirs.
From his position just ahead of the entrance to the cell blocks, the man thought he heard shouts from outside still, which he took that as an indication that it was time to slip into the control room. In addition to all the door controls (cells, internal and external), there was an armory, a sturdy desk and some stationery. Oh, and some books.
Prior to their arrival, the man had read himself in a little trinket or two, one of which he'd secured in his pocket with a safety pin, and the other, well, it just made this whole thing easier. With a press of the emergency lockdown button, a number of things happened simultaneously: all the cell doors closed, as with a full lockdown, but in this case the main internal and external doors sealed shut as well, all the lights in the prison went out, and a slight hum filtered through the building. The hum was followed by a voice, amplified to reach every corner of the prison.
"Well now, that was a valiant attempt. Unfortunately I'm not quite finished with this little experiment, but it looks like I've just received some new subjects. Those of you with some sort of power will probably have noticed by now that they're being sapped. I'd advise you against trying to fight it - it will only make you weaker. Welcome, though. I'm sure we'll be acquainted soon enough."
(OOC: It looks like this post is going to be for rescue threads followed by lockdown threads. It would be helpful, then, to label them pre and post lockdown (or pre and post if you plan to cover both). If you would like a run in with The Man (it will likely be short) add an 'open to the man' as well. He'll throw them in the closest cell (not already occupied by two people), so you're welcome to choose yours/where he'll find them. Those evading him are welcome to slip into any spaces they can find. He can open the internal doors and will - so someone hiding might somehow be fortuitous enough to slip through after he comes in. The catwalks and utility corridors might be good places to skulk as well (he'll definitely check the catwalks.. but one could always cling to the sides(/hang off the bars) or just always be one step ahead of him). He'll subdue the people he comes almost before he gets to them though. More about that in the threads!)
