  1. Past hour
  2. GM The pair of students managed to approach Mr. Stark's office unnoticed. Both would find themselves in front of the door at the same time, and yet, they did not notice the other. The door appeared to be a heavy hardwood door, much like the rest of the doors to the teachers' offices, with a golden door handle. The teachers, at least, were not wanting for anything at Elysium Academy. There was a keypad next to the door, with the numbers 0 to 10, and a lock symbol to press at the end. From their previous journeys across the school, both of the heroes would know that the teachers used values with 6 different numbers for their codes. The question was how they would proceed to enter.
  3. Rebellion Mr. Stark was not a good teacher. He was just one of many on Elliot's list of potential members of the conspiracy, which had absolutely nothing to do with how the tactics teacher would continuously put down Elliot and the rest of the Omega Squad during his lessons, with the general breadth of tactics thrown in their direction being something along the lines of "Go stand in front of the heroes, stall them until the real combatants can get close". No, Elliot did not like Mr. Stark at all, but he did not let his emotions get the better of him. That was not the reason that he suspected Mr. Stark to be a part of the conspiracy that secretly ruled Emerald City. No, that came from the cryptic messages that Elliot had happened to see written on his phones, the whispers he shared with other teachers, and, perhaps most of all, from the fact that he had once mentioned the Terror. Mentioning the Terror was, in itself, not a red flag. But that he had mentioned it as an example of something that had been created for a purpose? Now that was interesting. As far as Elliot was aware, the general public knew nothing about what the Terror was. But, apparently Mr. Stark did. Elliot had pulled his mask on, and vanished, replaced by Rebellion. Now he walked the halls of the school, his hands in the pockets of his blue jacket, blue cap pulled over his head. He was black, his eyes white in the darkness of his face, but of course, no one could see him, as he blended into the world around him. He had yet to be caught during his tours around the Academy and the outside, and he planned to keep it that way. No one should suspect him, after all. It did not take long to reach Mr. Stark's office. The only question was how to enter without causing too much noise or attract attention.
  4. Today
  5. This was not a good scene; as much as Casey wanted to grab Darlene and drag her back to the Pi House, her professional side now felt the need to hang around and figure out if the place was just over the top or actually up to no good. "A rum and Coke, please." "I'll have a margarita, thank you very much. I must say, you throw one hell of a soiree; it reminds me of one of our..." As Darlene activated her 'Southern socialite mode' (God, she was such a legacy!), Casey did her best to nonchalantly scan the mansion, first on the intrafred, then next the X-ray spectrum. If something was a miss, hopefully she could find it.

  7. Ah, okay! Well, in some ways, that's better than the actual feat! I'll remove it.
  8. That's an interesting use of Additional Limbs. I'm inclined to allow it, it's clever. Improved Grapple does not come free with Additional Limbs. This power allow you to use your normal number of limbs while grappling and still having your additional limbs free (which is very much like Improved Grapple - "... provide the benefits of the Improved Grapple feat ..."), or you can apply those extra limbs to a grapple to get a +1 bonus per rank in the power, decided when you actually go for a grapple check. You can't do both without actually buying Improved Grapple itself, and this is just the normal function of Additional Limbs.
  9. Fox


    Fair enough on the fluff; the phrasing on the description is odd, but if you're tying the Attractive in her 'glow' and not the items more at the tail end of the sentence, then that's fine. If the Variable Descriptor is the traditional "slashing/bludgeoning/piercing", please use that instead.
  10. Yesterday
  11. Dok is trying to worm some info out of their captors as they travel, so... Gather Information check? 1d20+6: 9 [1d20=3] Oof
  12. "Yes," Archeville exclaimed, "take us to your leader!" Once down and marching, Archeville split his time between sending brief text messages to Delta and chatting up the apes. "We heard much of Lord Urghrghu, of Lord Uplift! Hear he make dumb animals smart, make four-legs walk on two, make plants bite like jaguar! Want to see," he glanced back at Delta and the two WEST agents, then back to the lead ape, "maybe even helping! Can you tell what big-science thing he working on now?" >Delta, are your sensors picking up anything useful? How are Henry and Cortez holding up?<
  13. "Thanks, folks," he replied cheerily, "seems I lost my own group. They must've gone inside already -- I'm sure I'll meet 'em once I get in. Pleased t'metcha Jenny," he took her hand in both of his so hers wouldn't shake too much, "name's Burt. Aw, this?" He removed one hand from hers and fanned his face, "'t'ain't nothin' special -- got it at a party much like this'un! Cost an arm an' a leg, though, an' as good as it looks," he grasped her hand with both of his again, and spoke in a stage whisper, "I honestly cain't recommend it. But, hey," his voice ramped up again, "yer outfit's great! All'a y'all's! An' I hope y'all have a really good time t'night!" He eyed the doorman, looking for any signs of the supernatural forces which had drawn him here. Hey, Mutt, he thought towards his canine companion, you make it over yet? See anythin'?
  14. There will be some talky first, but could you roll initiative?
  15. Lord Uplift? Delta thought this sounded suspicious at best, but he had found in his interdimensional adventures this far, that if no one was trying to kill you it was likely not to bad and more answers could be had by cooperating for a little before the fighting started. His black and red metallic body parts seemed to absorb the light as they walked, he was sure this would end in a way that would require him to shoot his way through the rifle slinging simians, but for now he was happy to let the Doctor take the lead and charm his way in as deep as they could get before the blasters came out again.
  16. Okay, opted to just drop the Extra and Flaw from Drain Wisdom; let me know what you think.
  17. Chromium stood to his feet, his silver form reflecting the crashing waves, the moonlight and the visage of his foe as he walked towards him spiked mace in hand. Chromium glanced towards the white faced Lady Key, eager to make sure she did not escape but a whirling spiked mace commanded a certain amount of attention from even the bravest of fighters and Chromium certainly qualified. Frowning in concentration he focused on his right arm and lo it did change shape! A mighty sword, crackling with electrical energy took the place of his hand and Chromium smiled at his opponent,"Are you sure this is what you want to do? I'd hate to cut you down in battle but I will if I must....it would be better for you if you just gave in and let me take you to the police...or stockade." The crackling power surging along the length of his hand-blade reflected on his body bathing the beach in a shimmering light as he circled his opponent, ready for the inevitable clash.
  18. I suppose: Skill Matery Climb (26) to reach the Bridge. Then Notice roll: Notice Roll: 1d20+13 28 to assess the scene and also see if his amazing nose can pick up anythng? I guess it will boil down to Super STR the cars back onto the bridge, but let me know!

    [IC] Dance Macabre

    Miracle Girl Getting to the bar wasn't too difficult at the moment, but it was very obvious to Casey that the moment that this place filled up (which it most likely would considering the party had only just officially started), moving around the room would become more and more complicated. The heels didn't help with that part, either. The bar was an actual, built-in bar that was part of how this Mansion was furnished, separating the kitchen area from the living room that the party was taking place in. A few other people stood at the bar and chatted amongst one another as the two sisters approached. The barman was bald, probably in his early 30s, and sporting a sculpted brown beard, his red-and-black t-shirt being quite a contrast to the fancier outfits of just about everybody else in the room. He looked at Casey's face for a moment, perhaps trying to figure out something, then replied with a quite upbeat tone, that still had something slightly sinister about it. And it probably wasn't the accent, which sounded similar to that of the doorman. "Welcome, ladies! I can offer you just about anything you would expect from a party like this. We've got some gin, whiskey, rum, various mixers and a fair selection of vodka. I can also offer you the usual non-alcoholic drinks and snacks." As he was talking, a woman walked towards the two sisters, having broken off from a small group that had been talking amongst themselves previously. She was quite tall, with her hair in a long blonde ponytail. Her outfit was fairly similar to that of Darlene, just perhaps slightly more revealing, and her eyes were accented by what either was a makeup-accident or a deliberately large amount of black highlighting around her eyes. "So, what brings to girls like you to a place like this?" Before either sister had a chance to respond, the woman quickly addressed the bartender. "Their first order's on me." Dead Head "Oh, you're clearly heading to the same party, right? Follow us then. " The group didn't seem to mind to much, before Burt had even said a word. And judging by the volume of their speaking, their movement and so on, they hadn't been sober for a while now. As the group waited in the queue for the groups in front of them to get let into the mansion, they talked amongst themselves about the party (cool, a bit weird, hopefully fun) and one of them, a woman who probably was in her early 20s, turned towards Burt. "Your makeup is really cool, you're gonna have to tell me how you managed all of that. I'm Jenny, by the way." She held out her hand – and probably did her best to keep it steady, which seemed to work somewhat. At the same point, everybody began to take a few steps forward, as the Doorman now began to speak with the rest of the group. He spoke with a deep and slow voice, before waving the group inside.
  20. GM The Monkeys were confused. This was not, it seemed, part of their plan. Despite being vastly more intelligent than regular monkeys, they would hardly be called smart. No smarter than the average human, at most. "Lord---he want to speak to you!" they summised. When the situation was quite outside their parameters of operation, they defaulted to the best option. Take the problem to someone smarter than they were. "Lord Uplift want to speak to you! He smarty!" They ushured the foursome through the jungle with blaster carbines at the ready. They did not seem ready to shoot the mysterious strangers, but neither did they seem ready to dop their weapons or their guard...
  21. GM And a fine and speedy plan it was, too. The two vehicles (or man-vehicle in the case of Chromium) skidded on the beach sand, kicking up a rather nice looking plume of sand in their wake. It was a testement to everyones skill and agility that a crash did not happen. Instead, Chromium and Sir Prize ground to a semi-elegant stop on the beach, and the waves lapped inches from their feet. Sir Prize was impassive behind his medieval helm, but had a sort of joy in his voice. "Very well, to Arms it is, then! What a day! A bold day! A day for beating hearts and clashing steel!" And in his case, a whirling spiked morning star, advancing on Chromium whilst Lady Key slowly peeled herself off the bike, rather white faced with the excitement...
  22. Just to keep score Fax - 6 HP - Bruised (And off saving civvies!)
