  1. Today
  2. Paige goes on 19 and has a skill mastered Sense Motive of 25. I'm also going to do a Notice check, which is skill mastered to 30.
  3. "Well we won't get our deposit back on that," Paige observed dryly as the office building went up in flames. She ignored the pang of lost footage and equipment, trivial in comparison to the fact that all the people had gotten out alive. The headache that psychic visions gave her was more than worth it just for that. Even now their crew was back at work, David manning the camera he'd brought along despite Paige's insistence and several of the others filming with their phones. Kelsey had one arm firmly wrapped around Vivi's shoulders to keep the intern from falling apart during their first big villain encounter. She turned her attention back to the fight just in time to see her son arriving, bold and loud as his father in his prime, and couldn't help the smile. "Can't you just use a sand ball like a regular person?" she asked, the question obviously rhetorical. "Our investigation appears to have cracked wide open, along with our building."

  5. Yesterday
  6. https://orokos.com/roll/913389 Init is 28. Skill Mastery for Sense Motive is at 25.
  7. El will try to intimidate the group. She will use Skill Mastery with her +10 Intimidation for a 20.
  8. Outrider El grinned as the officers fell like ninepins under her hammer. This felt...a little weird? She knew that police officers kept the peace in the past, but these were clearly working for the Ex-Prisoner...so she wasn't feeling too bad about it. But still, it was weird. "Bring us out the Ex-Prisoner! We will face him ourselves! No one else needs to get hurt today!" she boomed, her helmet amplifying her voice. "Disperse now and we will let you pass!" To demonstrate this, she charged her hammer with energy, holding it high into the air. "NOW!"
  9. Thanks god the flight went smoothly. Luke kept double checking the unconscious form of his friend the whole way, clutching him carefully in his claws, mindful not to hurt him more. We are going to fix you buddy, don't worry. There must be something that the people at the school could do right? After all the faculty was all made of freakin' superheroes. "Yeah." He nodded as he hurried to follow the headmistress toward the infirmary. "This his Matt, he is my friend..." He sort of introduced them. "He was... Well... Gangsters shot him and he got hurt bad..." Yeah and it was his fault. "but not like, turn into a cyborg kinda of bad, he was recovering." Or at least that's what he hoped. "Someone did this to him." He added, pointing at the robotic parts. "It's like, like they can control him through the implants, made him try to attack Judy at the demonstration before.... Ashley knocked him down... I hope he isn't-" The young man lowered his eyes. "Can you help him?"
  10. "Nice." Luke replied dryly at the mention of the things they were going to wait for them. "They are like nostalgia demons." He chuckled. It was somewhat funny that he himself was a creature of the 'old world' after all, wasn't him? Well as far as he knew his species was common whenever he had been snatched from. "Whatever that is we are gonna kick their vengeful asses to where they come from." He added confidently. turning toward his girlfriend and smiling at her. Finally there they were, a part of town that, honestly speaking, the young man wasn't very familiar with, a bit too fancy to be honest, although he could appreciate the 'spooky' vibe a bit, given the whole, overlooking the graveyard thingie. Whatever. It was time to slip back into superhero mode which meant keeping his eyes open...
  11. William Cline was mostly out on the West Coast these days, having graduated fully and entered the workforce. He had a steady girlfriend, one who he'd introduced to his family, and the full breadth of his life, not too long ago. He was often genuinely busy now, instead of the "busy" of a teenager or college student who was too "cool" to be with his parents much. But when his father sent him the text, Will knew things were serious enough he suited up to make the run back. When he was a few dozen miles outside of the city, he felt the sudden distress of his mother over the background psychic link he'd opened himself to. He immediately pushed every ounce of power he could into running fast. He might not be the fastest person on Earth but he was beginning to enter the same league as those individuals. So it should not have been a surprise to his parents and the other two heroes when Thoughtspeed skidded to a halt in a half-spin, ending up perfectly in front of his mother with twin humming blades of crackling green-black light casting eerie reflections off of his black helmet. "A melodramatic robot for me to beat up? How'd you know I needed some stress relief? You shouldn't have!"
  12. Guest Star! A Wild Thoughtspeed appears! Initiative: 24. Sense Motive: 26.
  13. Neko listened intently, staring at Danica with her big yellow eyes while her ears swiveled on her head to point right at her. She appreciated the slow way the other girl spoke. "A woman scientist? That is very - brave. The tortoise god must have chosen her for that," she said with a satisfied nod. There are much stranger things than the daughter of a kami, she thought. It's a good thing she's so kind. The school was right to put me with her. "I am from Japan, from Iya Valley." She was glad, suddenly, that Danica hadn't asked her about the ears and tail that marked her ancestry. Those parts of her body had been something she'd taken for granted as a little girl, since everyone else in her village had them, but in the outside world she had quickly come to understand how they marked her as different. "It is very small, very small towns, with very many big mountains, and everyone like me in our town." Her ears twitched at that, having moved back up to stand straight on her head. "Not like here, no, not the same. So I do not see...other places until I am older." A look of frustration crossed her face, and she looked away, gathering her words, before she looked back at Danica. "I like...singing, and telling stories, and playing games, but that is hard because English is hard. In school, we never...not any of that, it was bad." She waved her hand and shook her head, tail lashing behind her. "I read it okay but speaking English is hard." She sat down on the floor, folding her legs underneath her, and reached over to skritch Magenta as she would a kitten. "I came here with Owain, my friend from Britain. He was, um, a knight for Arthur. He is on the first floor with the boys. He taught me some English." She hesitated a moment, then said, "I...have bad dreams, but they will not hurt you. See?" She demonstrated by making arcane, twisting gestures in the air with her hands, summoning a shadowy-black, paper-thin figure of an old-fashioned samurai about as tall as Magenta. The little samurai ran up to Danica, poked her with its tiny blade, and promptly vanished in a slight puff of smoke. She gave Danica a worried look as it did.

    The Third Act

    "Well, sort of?" Danica equivocated, making a see-saw motion with her hand. "My parents are zoologists, that means they're scientists who study animals. My mom's specialty is the giant tortoises. She really, really devoted her life and all her attention to learning more about tortoises, and she really, really liked them." It was kind of hard to walk the line between making the words too complex and simplifying the concepts too much, but she did her best. "Anyway, that kind of devotion, I mean, that kind of love for tortoises caught the attention of a tortoise god who was looking for, um, a solid body in the real world. So when my mom got pregnant, it put its power into me, so someday when I'm grown up, I will probably be a tortoise god myself. But that's not for a long time," she added quickly, waving away the topic. Magenta provided an adorable distraction. "You like Neko's ears, huh? They're pretty cool," Danica agreed. "Maybe you can get Ryder to give you cool ears, if you want." She turned her attention back to her new roommate. "So what's your story?" she asked curiously. "Where are you from? What do you like to do?"
  15. Talos folded his arms. "YOU FLESHY HUMANS ACQUIRED VALUABLE TECHNOLOGY FROM THE CURATOR." He glared at them. "NONE OF YOU POSSESS THE INTELLECT, THE COLD, MACHINELIKE THOUGHT PROCESSES TO TRULY GRASP THE POWER YOU POSSESSED. YOU COULD NOT CONCEIVE OF THE POTENTIAL THAT YOU SO FOOLISHLY LOCKED AWAY. I HAVE SPIRITED THE TECH TO RURLAND, WHERE IT WILL BE FAR MORE USEFUL." "I HAVE SATISFIED YOUR CURIOSITY." The lord of Rurland said with a cold fury, there was anger in his robotic voice.. "SOON YOU WILL DESPAIR AT THE COST YOU PAID FOR THIS KNOWLEDGE."
  16. The Supercrime! crew moved fast; of course it helped that Richard could lend his speed to the others as they bolted out for freedom, the alarm ringing lustily as the rest of the building began to evacuate too. And just in time. Outside, there was a supersonic crack in the sky as something appeared above them so fast it had broken the sound barrier arriving. Hovering above the parking lot of the small office park was a giant figure cast in copper, a man-shaped machine as large as a small car, his eyes glowing a brilliant red. And indeed he was a he, an instantly-recognizable figure to heroes and civilians alike as people ran for cover. TALOS - the metal master of Rurland - had broken his long exile to his own nation, but for what purpose? "FOOLISH FLESHLINGS!" Talos declared, laughing wickedly as power crackled around his hands, black energy terribly dark against a brilliant red around his gigantic hands. "YOU THINK YOU CAN STOP ME? MY SECRETS ARE NOT FOR THE MINDS OF PUNY FLESHY ONES! ALL WILL DIE - IN THE NAME OF TALOS!" And then he fired a blast of energy over their heads, directly at the office building they'd all just recently abandoned. There was the noise of impact, and suddenly the building erupted in a nearly silent, glowing fireball that transformed it in an instant into a blazing inferno! The battle, it seemed, was on. "Oh for $(($'s sake," Richard was heard to distinctly say out loud. "I _hate crazy robots_."
  17. Last week
  18. Stepping lightly around the cat as it darted past a fit young man shifted the bankers box with most of his possessions to one hip freeing a hand to wave to his fellow students. Brushing a stray lock of hair from over one eye, his close cropped cut had grown out over the summer apparently, he took in the the group with a lazy half smile, "Ryder it's good to have you back, life has been less eventful without you." he greeted his roommate. Sparing a nod for Heroditus and Charlie in greeting he took in the new addition to the class robot collection with a small smirk, "Boys and their toys." he teased playfully. Regarding the apparent twins he flashed a pearly smile, "Greetings, I am Utsawa." he introduced looking between the two curiously. "I don't believe I've had the pleasure." His confidence in English had also grown over the summers tutoring it seemed.

    The Third Act

    Multi-Girl Bernadette walked over to where her suitcase and box were placed off to one side of the dorm room. She smiled slightly at Rosalind’s questions about clothes and duplication. "It's alright, I would probably be askin' the same questions meself." "But yes, luckily I do somehow duplicate whatever I’m wearin' when I create me duplicates. Would be bloody embrassin' to have a duplicate appear just starkers." The Irish teen glanced around the room and looked back over towards Rosalind. "Any preference on which side?"
  20. The Traveller Whilst Sitara had been a warrior for many millennia she’d also been an engineer for just as long. And she’d seen these kind of power lifters many times before, really her power armour was just a much fancier version. “Hmmm looks like a SKR-11L, Lor design, cheap and cheerful! I bet they didn’t even disable remote diagnosis.” As she spoke she used her suits computer to link with the control systems, accessing the code of the machine. “I think I wrote some of this code! Should be easy to put it into maintenance mode...” Thus done a half dozen safety systems, the Lor were nothing but cautious, shut everything down so the potentially fault suit couldn’t harm the user.
  21. Starshine “Being an only child is nice and all, but sometimes its nice to others around your old age. Once a year I’d stay with my Aunty and it was crazy at times but also a lot of fun.” She dropped the bag in the room with a large thump, wondering what she’d do with so many sweaters through the year. She looked up at the taller, thinner, woman it was a shame they couldn’t share clothes. Thinking of clothes made an obvious question come to mind. “I was going to ask about clothes and duplication but I guess you must already be fed up of such questions?”
  22. Micah knew Eira well enough now that he hid his sadness at her angry rejection of being something besides metal and plastic. He could appreciate she wanted to choose her own future, but he remembered the screaming and anger when they'd visited her home. It seems she still needed to find peace with parts of herself. Instead, he just smiled at his friends as his powers faded away. "We didn't defeat this place, Eira. We defeated Hook, but as for Never...well, I guess Foreverworld? Seems like we saved it." He smiled and crossed his arms over his chest. "Seems like a good start to a new book, yeah?"
  23. Gizmo

    The Third Act

    Magenta took the invitation gladly, scuttling in a zigzag path back and forth across the hall as one thing or another caught her momentary interest but always hurrying after Danica to catch up with the scooter after a moment. She preened when Neko called her cute, mimicking the girl's tilting head when she smiled. The little mantis crawled up the front of Danica's scooter with ease once they stopped, perching on the handlebars and using the vantage point to survey the room. Neko's quiet singing caught her attention and she made a series of musical chirps along with the melody. Noticing the cat-like ears on top of the girl's head Magenta bent her forelimbs into triangles over her own head and trilled excitedly.
  24. Raina immediately put up both hands to distance herself from any facet of this conversation. "If you want somebody to put the fake you back together, that's totally your business," she told Anna, "but I'm definitely not going to be the one to go another round with it." By now Merlin had found her and given her a thorough scolding for not fleeing earlier, a position that was unfortunately kind of hard to argue with. "You've got your pictures and nobody got the Kathy Bates treatment from their accidental girlfriend, so I'm just going to call this a win and go home."
  25. "Okay," said Neko after a moment's pause to take in this new information. So she is not the gadgeteer. At least I didn't ask her to show me her tools, or whatever it is she keeps inside her shell. "I do not know about - machines," she said as they headed inside their room. "Where I am from is very different. The machines were not like that. But Magenta is very cute." She smiled at the little bug as she sat her bag down on her side of the room. She hadn't yet admitted to being an enemy from decades in the past, and so far that omission was just fine by her. Neko's side of the room was noticeably bare of anything save the desk and chair where she'd be working, and she took a moment to remove some things from her duffel - The Tale of Heike in Japanese and English, a few small porcelain statues that she set on the desk, and some spare clothes that she went to hang up on the closet in her side of the room. I will put the tortoise here too; why not? That closet was full with a carefully-wrapped futon, which she obviously expected as she hung up her clothes. Occasionally she seemed to pause and look somewhere into space as she went about her work, occasionally singing softly to herself in Japanese as her tail twitched behind her. Ah, so that boy is Ryder! And that girl upstairs, did she speak Japanese? She actually smiled at that thought before she turned back to Danica. "How did you get mino, um, tortoise spirit?" she asked, making a gesture behind her that roughly mimicked a shell. "Your parents?"

    "Magenta!" Danica squealed in delight, slowly bending down to allow the robot insect to climb onto her open palm. "I'm so glad you're back! I bet Ryder's around here somewhere, huh? I'm glad you like the new hair!" She gave Neko a reassuring look. "This is Magenta, she's an arti- um, she's a robot bug," she corrected, hoping to hit the correct vocabulary level for her new roommate. "She belongs to my friend Ryder. He helped design my scooter, and he's awesome! You'll probably meet him later. Want to come with us to see our new room?" she asked Magenta, even as she began to roll the scooter around towards the door.
