Challenge #01784-D322: Worrying Encounters

"But, there wasn't any psionic signal from this direction !"

(in the Wake comics, psionics signal are used as a mean of communication, something like telepathies. And human are "immune" to it. Meaning that we're just invisible to their system.) -- Anon Guest

I tried Sending... but no-one's in range. I'm recording this for anyone who finds my remains. Tell Tentho... I'm-- what?"
