  1. (IC) Do You Have To Be An Ocean Away?

    "Hm. I had heard of your efforts." It was hard to tell her thoughts on her daughter acting as a superhero. "I am pleased to know you are free of Sin, child." She called it Zui, the original translation of the Sin patriarch's most common name. "I approve of what you have done." She folded her hands before her and studied Tsunami with a look that wasn't unfriendly but was certainly distant - this was perhaps the look Murjana would give the deserving winner of a local talent competition. Behind her armor, Monsoon hesitated before saying, "...perhaps we should continue this conversation later. I'm sure my sister had an early morning, and Giang has been teleported across the Earth this morning." - In the receiving room, the Emir was full of questions for the two siblings, all boisterous cheer and smiles as he moved from one to the other with the energy of a predator making a leap. "Ah! I love your garb, my lady!" he said with a smile as he studied the White Lioness. "I have been cloistered in my lands too long - I had no idea this was the latest fashion in my elder brother's court!"

  3. Bing-Bong, Bing-Bong (IC)

    Spring 2018 A Saturday evening Anna appeared in Jette's office, sitting in the office chair directly in front of the latter's desk. She was smirking, her legs crossed demurely before her, and wearing an orange tracksuit like someone who'd gone jogging in a Bedlam winter. "Hey, Rocket Shorts! Remember me?" There was only one person who had ever called Jette Rocket Shorts, even though she'd heard almost nothing of that worthy since she'd gone to jail - three years _after_ Jette herself had gone behind bars. Anna Cline was a good twenty-five years her senior, closer to her late partner's age than her own, but the smile lines were thin enough and the blonde hair real enough that it was clear she didn't look her age; if anything, she looked Jette's age or a few years younger.
  4. (IC) Do You Have To Be An Ocean Away?

    Murjana led her daughter and sister through the corridors of the Emir's palace - and then down steep stone steps to an underground river; an artificial channel that carried the sheer power of the river outside through a passageway so narrow that it roared like a waterfall. With the channel behind her, Murjana turned to face Tsunami. Over the sound of the water, all three women had to raise their voices just a little. Her voice was slow, halting, and deliberate, the accent in her Mandarin strong. "My sister tells me you have not come to spill my blood, child," she said, her face impassive as she looked Giang in the eye. "I am pleased. Your break with your father is complete?"
  5. HATERS Unite

    Steve was not having a good day. "Yes, I agree," he was saying, with perhaps more force than usual. "It is absolutely imperative that we do everything we can to prevent another Terminus invasion." He was staring at the man with the "9/11 Was A Inside Job" ballcap with a sinking heart, heedless of the snow piling up on his bald head. "And it is entirely possible that entropic mutants are being used as pawns by the forces of the Terminus in order to infiltrate this world." After all, that had happened before, on countless worlds besides this one. "But do you have any evidence?" he said, pointing to the television still playing a DVD he judged to have been produced on a home electronics set. "This is not evidence." "I'm just asking questions, man," said Ballcap, folding his arms and giving Steve a suspicious look. "You some kind of T-Baby lover?" Steve stared at the man, considering his responses, and said, "No." Ballcap did not keep speaking. "We have to _do_ something," repeated the Ballcap's red-faced female partner for the fourth time in as many minutes. "They're going to take us over and destroy us! Sending them back to the Terminus is the only safe solution!" "That is not a safe solution at all!" said the former Omegadrone, raising his voice again more than he usually did with civilians. "Beyond questions of guilt or innocence, increasing the size of the armies of the Terminus will only speed the entropic death of the multiverse and the prosecution of the Omnicide!" People were beginning to stare at the big man raising his voice; but on the other hand, given the volume coming from others, he wasn't the only shouter. With a disgusted look on his face, he turned and walked away.
  6. Setting discussion: Atlantis

    Some thoughts - Atlantis probably has a long history. You should feel free to say "Well fashions/architecture/culture changes in 1000 years (or however long we decide it lasted), so it's OK if it's not exactly the same as some previous PC's style. If you do want to make things compatible with what we've seen from other PCs, I'd say that in Demosthenes's absence, some cruel tyrant took over in his place and led the people into the barbarism that prompted the nation's fall. (That way there's less reason to worry about the PC that helped destroy Atlantis in the past!) The concept makes sense to me. There definitely will be some in-game controversy with his origins but that seems all to the good.
  7. Save The HATERS?

    Possible interest - let me know!
  8. (IC) Do You Have To Be An Ocean Away?

    "It is no interruption!" suddenly boomed Mamba from his throne, all smiles as he waved to the new arrivals with a jovial lord's disposition. "Sister of my lady wife and queen of Socotra hereafter, and honored guest. You are welcome here in the Crocodile Kingdom as long as you wish. Have you had the pleasure of meeting the heirs to my elder brother's throne-" (not true biologically, but true by kin by what they had just sworn) "What brings you to our lands?" "I greet the Red Lynx and the White Lioness, prince and queen hereafter. I come on family business, Crocodile Emir - the family of mine and your lady wife's." said Monsoon. From beside the emir, said lady wife was staring at Tsunami. Murjana was considerably paler than most Dakanans, her head wrapped in a ribbon of white fabric as she folded her hands demurely before her. When she spoke, it was in the Arabic she'd learned from her mother. The sisters exchanged words, one's face implacable, the other hidden behind a mask - before the latter gestured towards Tsunami. Murjana stared at her daughter and made a gesture towards the doors behind her, speaking now in heavily-accented Mandarin, heedless of the crocodile-skinned guards on either side. "Come. Away from these others." As they spoke, the smiling Emir watched them before turning to his royal guests. "Come, son and daughter of a king! Let us commemorate the greatness of this day."

  10. Frogs Rush In

    "Are they food?" asked Aquaria, her eyes fixed forward as she looked at the reptile with fascination. Jessie might have been interested in the fruit, but she certainly wasn't. "I mean, uh, I was just asking what they were for, bre-ek-coax," she croaked, realizing that Jessie was giving her what had to be a familiar look. "I wasn't going to eat it. It is a very nice garden. You have found a good place for the crown." she added, rather relieved that she hadn't found Leviathan wearing the crown - for all that he would have cut a very dashing figure in it. At least we aren't talking about Blackstone anymore. Oh I do not like that place! "The plants and the animals, did you get them from space?" she asked. "I have not seen them on the Surface."
  11. Lady Horus/Wadjet (PL 10 PC/PL 8 Sidekick)

    All fixed - though note that Wadjet has Speed of Thought.
  12. (IC) Intent

    The Lor handled this with great professionalism - there was no real word for it. Alarms blared and lights flashed, a eye-catching sequence of blue and yellow, and everywhere the station crew (though really, to Puigo's eye it was clear that this was a semi-permanently 'parked' mobile command headquarters) took shelter behind rapidly-closing vacuum seal doors. It wasn't long before Puigo found himself neatly contained in alternatingly blue-and-yellow branching corridors that went nowhere, behind doors that it would have taken him a blaster to cut through. "I'm sorry about this, pilot," said Samran's voice over the intercom. "I don't want to deploy counter-intruder measures against you. If you can stop and allow us to speak with you, I can tell you what we know about the fate of your empire - and what we can do for you here in the present in the new galactic order of things. You are not the only survivor."
