Eagerly leaping through, Dog clears the portal and moves aside to make room for the others to pass through.  As the others appear through the portal, Dog takes a look behind at what was making the beeping sound.

As you jump through and turn around, you see a large machine. It appears unlike any machine you've ever seen, clearly of non-human origin.The portal you came through seems much larger from this side.  It is a large round metal ring, and you can clearly see through to the room you just left. The beeping is coming from the ring itself.

After telling the LC: "Sir, please report this to the C24 command so they know what's going on."
Dean follows his teammates, weapon drawn.

As he arrives on the other side he takes out his GPS to see where they are.

[spoiler=assuming this IS a Stargate]Seeing that the GPS doesn't provide any coordinates any more, he deadpans "Guys, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore."[/spoiler]

To Dean's surprise, his GPS is working fine. The coordinates read -3.532176, -64.336769. As the four of you look around, you see that the clearing you are in continues behind you, like a large grass road leading south east.

David walks around the portal, his gun ready.  "Dean, where the hell are we?"

Dog begins to systematically search the road and area around the 'gate for any signs of passage, including scent.

"Brazilian rainforest from the looks of it David, just north of the Amazon river."

[spoiler]Assuming the rift to the base is still open: Dean then takes a small piece of paper, writes down the coordinates and tosses the paper through the rift so C24 will know where its agents ended up.[/spoiler]


"Dog, you pickin' up anything?" Dean asks as he takes in his surroundings.

[spoiler]Spot: 21[/spoiler]

The piece of paper that Dean writes on seems to go through the portal just fine.

As Dog breathes deeply of the humid Amazonian air, a barrage of strong, unfamiliar scents hit his nostrils, making picking up individual scents extremely difficult. However, both he and Dean notice what appear to be path of disturbed vegetation and a series of disfigured footprints in the loamy, grassy undergrowth leading away from the machine and down the clearing.

"Are you seeing what I'm seeing, Dog? It looks like they, whoever 'they' are that is, went that way." Dean says as he point to the trail he picked up with his weapon.

"I'll scout ahead," says Dog as he quietly advances onto the path of disturbed vegetation, following the tracks as best he can.

do you want a new Survival check, or can I continue with the last one I rolled?

"I'll watch your back." Dean says as he follows his Moreau companion.

"You guys coming or what?" he asks David and Charon.

You begin to follow the disturbed vegetation southeast. It's a very easy path to follow, and holds no real challenge for Dog. Just before you get out of sight of the machine, you hear a long low whine back at the teleporter. When you go back to inspect it, the teleporter seems to have shut down. (Wisdom or Intelligence check if you would like your character to infer why the machine may have turned off, but I promise you it's nothing sinister.)

Suddenly, the forest erupts in noise. Birds cawing and squawking, monkeys screeching, the noise is deafening. Then, all noise near you stops. the sudden silence is so obviously out of place in this forest that it is almost terrifying.
[spoiler]I need listen and spot from everyone.  :smirk[/spoiler]

David holds up a hand, motioning for his team to stay quiet.  He then looks around, trying to see if he can find out what is going on out there.

"Something's wrong here, someone or something is watching us, maybe even hunting us." Dean thinks to himself as he instinctively takes in his surroundings and readies his firearm.
