Dear Denizens of Worldbuilding:
I have hit upon a method of rendering a surface devoid of the forces of friction at will, then returning it to the normal operations of physics.
As exciting as this discovery is, it also means I have become the target for many malignant men. I have currently been caged by said forces, until they can figure out a way to exploit my talents.
It is not terribly awful here, but the food is rather bland and it does get quite drafty. In fact, escape would be quite easy, just walk down the road until I reach signs of humanity. But in order to ensure my cooperation they have stationed gunmen for the next mile at regular intervals.
Therefore, your most magnificent mission is to figure out a method by which I can ensure my safety against a large variety of conventional weaponry. I have a full suite of metal working equipment, multiple minions (their survival is secondary) of skill, and a fabricator capable of generating batteries and circuits of ten kilos or less.
Will my frictionless materials help in my escape?
