  1. My supervisor's last day was last Thursday, so three people were doing the shifts of four. And now someone else is leaving at the end of the week, so three people are going to be doing the shifts of four and a half. That's not a shot, she was only part time. Obviously I will not have time to post. I will barely have time to eat and sleep. The latter is only for a week, but jesus what a bad time for her to leave. For those keeping score at home, that's 64 hours that three people already doing 40 a week will be covering next week.
  2. Since Cheval was first, Dragoneer shook his hand. Niro placed a bookmark and then shut his book. “Nice to meet you, Marcus.” Standing for a moment, Niro shook Cheval’s hand before returning to his seat. “Niro Saki. A pleasure. I do agree, Miss Persephone. Not all of us have Dragoneer’s boundless confidence. A variety of skills, powers, and personalities can only be beneficial.” Dragoneer rolled his eyes. “He says that like I think I can take Omega by myself.” He winked conspiratorially and leaned in to whisper. “Well…we’d just have to see, wouldn’t we?” And then Persephone asked her question. UDK shrugged. “One place is as good as another, you know? I mean, Freedom and Emerald are a little…crowded for me, but otherwise yeah.” Niro let out a soft chuckle. “He threw six darts at a map of the United States, and then rolled a die. This did not fool me. His daughter is attending the University of Miami this semester.” UDK let out an aggrieved sigh. “Sure, give away all my secrets why don’t you?” But he said it with a smile. “Do you do aluminum, Torque? We recycle, so you can have all the soda cans you want. Or pour out some of the unopened ones. I don’t care.” There was a hint of apology in his eyes and tone, but he said nothing of it.
  3. Kevin? Niro blinked in surprise as he finished wiping the slime off his clothes as best he could. The towel was now in need of being burned. There was no saving it. My, that is his real name isn’t it? I’m so used to calling him Brom. Allow us to introduce ourselves. I am Niro Saki, here looking for Brom Steele. Also known as Kevin McKay. He is an old friend. Dragoneer cut in, as that was his cue. Just a bit older than me, friendo. You probably already know this, but I am the invincible, unstoppable, and irrepressible Ultimate Dragon Knight. Name’s Dragoneer. I don’t know Brom, but he’s Niro’s buddy so here I am. He had that grin plastered all over his face for a moment, before glancing at his best pal. Niro, think we can make a run to the car? The lady could use a towel to wipe of the slime and something to wear that isn’t a swimsuit. I don’t see why not. Even if they want to charge us for tickets again, you have the money. Right you are. UDK turned to Raya. Shall we? Or did you want to stay slimed and swimsuited? Because you can. No judgement from me.
  4. “I have a few ideas, yes.” Terrifica was clearly amused at the person who didn’t know her at all. She had stepped out of the room with all the victims and into the hallway. “The method is clear enough. We’re dealing with a psionic with a talent for illusions and a flair for theatricality. They could be using technology or magic to replicate psionic ability. I haven’t ruled that out yet.” She gave a moment for Corona to absorb that. “Motive is more…murky. However, these are college students who, I expect, are doing college student things. Alcohol, drugs, sex, or simple slacking off. A vampiric perpetrator would have no need for the theatricality, though they could if they desired. But honestly? I think it’s someone who’s annoyed at young adults enjoying their newly gained freedom. The victims whose personalities I know about fit that pattern. Highly intelligent, but with less than stellar work ethics and self discipline.” One beat. “That isn’t a criticism. Maturity takes time. Even I wasn’t…me in college. And many of history's finest minds could be rather erratic at times.”
  5. Dragoneer laughed. Oooh-ah, Niro’s got a girlfriend. Oooh-ah. I’m gonna tell. Niro gave him an amused glare. Are you twelve? He gently but firmly pried Raya off of him, and caught the towel UDK had thrown without even looking. They’d been friends a looooong time. While I appreciate the public display of affection, young miss, believe me when I tell you my friend appreciates such things much more than I do. Also, you were covered in slime. So thanks for that. Dragoneer was now next to them, having walked up while Niro was speaking. Lady, if they want a fight I’ll give it to them. I’m a pretty cool guy and I don’t afraid of anything. He flashed his famous goofy/confident/boyish grin. I’mma find out what’s up about this place with my bud here, and they can just try and stop me. The merest hint of dragon fire glinted in his eyes.
  6. You guys trying to impress me, or something? Dragoneer, leaning casually in his doorway, flashed his famous goofy/confident/boyish grin. He, of course, had heard the giant tree walking. The doorbell did not work. Old houses, man. He was dressed casually. Jeans and a merch T. I mean, I invited you guys to a meetup and hang out, not a wedding. His tone was gently teasing. UDK was not a man who cared what clothes people had on. With, of course, the expected exception for heterosexual males: attractive women in not very much at all. But what the hell, you’re here. Come on in, grab a sandwich and drink. Let’s get to know each other a bit. Meet my best bud. He stepped back out of his doorway with a welcoming wave of the hand.
  7. D rolled his eyes, but before he could transform again, Niro put his hand on his shoulder. Allow me. D shrugged and watched. Niro sauntered (a word that one wouldn’t expect to be associated with him, but that suited nonetheless) right up to the drunk tank. More accurately, a few strides away. He examined it and nodded, satisfied. He took those last few strides at a run and put his entire body weight behind a side kick directly to the glass of the tank.
  8. Dragoneer’s shirt? Ruined. Jeans. Finished. Shoes? Write ‘em off. The man had literally exploded. A lesser man would have been completely flabbergasted. The Ultimate Dragon Knight was merely nonplussed. Utterly so, with a side of bemusement. He said nothing. He said it a lot, and with great enthusiasm for the fine art of saying nothing. Because honestly, what could one say? Niro, for his (clean, for he had stepped back at the right moment) part, said just as much nothing. UDK at last sighed, and spoke. …two tickets, please. Just gimme a sec. It’s dragon time. Green scale armor covered him from head to toe, and fire came out of the helmet. He sprayed gentle flames over himself, incinerating the slime. This did not improve the smell. Not at all. But at last he wasn’t slimed anymore. The armor vanished, and he was clean. Ish. The highly amused Niro handed him a towel for his head. As he wiped with one hand, he pulled his money clip from his pocket with the other. Laugh it up, buddy. Oh, I wouldn’t dream of it. Dragoneer handed over the money.
  9. Niro didn’t bat an eye, but he was clearly taken aback. Insert one (1) Dragoneer. Who’d gone from bored to a little annoyed and impatient. Yeah, but Painmonger’s somehow better? Gimme a break, man. Also, could you be any more weird about it? I mean hello, red flag. You coulda just said no, man. Instead you go and call my best pal crazy and delusional. So over the top, you gotta know something. So, way I see it, you got a choice. You can tell us what you know. You can tell us who would know. Or you can say some other over the top nonsense. Spoiler alert: That last one doesn’t get you my ten bucks for our tickets.

  11. https://www.freedomplaybypost.com/topic/12568-dragons-harvest/ Still open to any other Vibora folks at this time.
  12. There weren’t words for how little Dragoneer cared about the prize, and his face did nothing to hide it. But he did not get the chance to actually speak. Unfortunately, no. We’re just looking for a friend. Niro produced a photograph of Brom Steele. Have you seen my friend? He came by to visit The… Niro also thought the name was stupid, but he was a man of tact. Painmonger. Call it a fact finding mission before he challenged him. However, once he passed these gates he disappeared and has not been seen since. Do you know anything? Dragoneer was just looking around, clearly bored.
  13. Vibora Bay. Easton Tangle. Dragoneer’s Townhouse. It had been a few-ish days since the whole giant…zombie…lizard…thing…and Dragoneer was still just a bit cranky. It was all right, honestly, he’d had a concert and then a match so he’d been having a busy and productive night. But maaaaan, what a way to make your debut onto the scene. UDK was dressed as he always was, and was pacing in front of his own front door. He’d never admit it, but meeting new people was stressful. He never knew how they’d respond to his unique brand of personal charisma. The townhouse was full of his merchandise (posters, action figures, one standee, etc), with photos of friends and family (except those with the surname Maguire) scattered on the walls and tables. Hey, Niro? The invitations went out, right? I didn’t daydream that? Didn’t think about it instead of doing it? Niro Saki, bestest pal to the one and only Ultimate Dragon Knight, was seated on UDK’s couch, reading a thin paperback. He too, was dressed as he always was. Around him on a few tables was a lovely spread of refreshments. The bigscreen television was on but muted. He did not look up. No, Dragoneer. You followed through. I watched. UDK nodded and kept pacing. Cool. Cool cool cool. Cool. I guess they’ll…be here when they’ll be here. He blew air out through his mouth. Niro turned the page. A watched pot never boils. The moment I leave is when the first one shows up. Paranoia. Gospel truth. I somehow doubt that. Dragoneer stopped pacing. All right, I’ll…watch TV, I guess. He sat down in his recliner and unmuted the television for the latest celebrity news. Ironically, it was not news to him. Because it was about him and his move to Vibora. Click. New channel, hello sports.
  14. Sadly, the Ultimate Dragon Knight had to work and thus was not in town when Storm of the Century happened. Bitter, he is. But whatever. Because Dragoneer a rich, charismatic fellow who vastly prefers getting his way to anything else and thus can be very persuasive. Surely he can get the Mayor of Vibora (or whoever else) to invite Vibora's new heroes to his house for a meet up and maybe a bit of a housewarming party? Could they possibly turn down one of the most famous celebrities on the planet? Well, I'm not the one who knows that. That would be you.
