    Good call, @Heritage. They ain't robots, which means that Stun effect can totally work on them. Will Save: 1d20+6 11 And it does!

    @TheAbsurdist It's a miss on both of them, I'm afraid. Wanna use a Hero Point to try again?

    Opposed Sense Motive: 1d20+6 23 @Dr Archeville You beat his Sense Motive, meaning that the Brunette Agent will Surprised the next time you try to take a swing at him. @Heritage Thanks for explaining the power. Hmm. I think even with the Displacement effect Lulu would still be hit with the Blast given that has a 50 ft. Cone Extra attached to it. That said, I'm willing to let Horrowshow's Interpose still save Lulu from the damage. Perhaps he got lucky and spotted a shimmer of Lulu's real self?

    Sounds good to me Archeville. Consider Lulu shielded. And now its your turn, @Dr Archeville.

  5. Even after a thorough search of both the lab and an in-depth data sweep of its computers, Replica was able to find no sign of Bones or the other missing employees. Nothing. The word seemed to loop endlessly in her postronic brain. Was that frustration? If it was it wasn't an emotion that she particularly cared for, especially when there was work that needed to be done. Bones had fled Cho's lab somehow and in all likelihood taken the remaining employees with him so he could continue his insane experiments with biological immortality. But where too was the crucial question. There was a chance that Cho himself had some inkling of his creation's hideout. Perhaps in another lab owned by Skeleton Staff? She'd have to question him on the matter, but first she planned on searching for Bones on the Internet. The Internet would have been the first place Bones would have escaped to and the freedom of the digital would have allowed him access to even more resources that even the Skeleton's lab could have offered. Using her technopathetic abilities, Replica remotely interfaced with the Skeleton Staff's nearby computers, intent to find any trace or trail that Bones may have left behind.

    Attack (Cone): 1d20+12 19 OK. That's a Blast 5 Attack with the Area: Cone Extra, which means I need Toughness Saves from @TheAbsurdist, @Dr Archeville, and @Heritage. Hope you can all beat a DC 20!

    GM Even with his weapon primed and ready, the Time Agent simply wasn't fast enough to get a shot off before White Lioness pounced on him with her fists. Within less than a second he suffered powerful blow to the bottom of the chin that sent him back reeling and concussed. It was a tiny miracle that he was even still conscious, not that his pair seemed to care in the least. Instead, while is partner tried to shake off his discombobulation, he trained his cold eyes on the problematic witnesses to his mission. "Assessment: Situation dire. New enemy variables demand higher level of offensive countermeasures. Activating Third Configuration." The black-and-pink blur must have understood what that meant since she immediately stopped moving across the room to give the students a warning. "Hey, Next-Gen, watch out! The wastoid is about to-" The blur didn't get the last word out before the Time Agent flipped a setting on his weapon and unleashed a wide arc of red repulsive energy aimed directly at four students!
  9. Search Check: Looking around the lab: 1d20+7 10 Wanted to look around the lab for any of the other missing employees or anything else of note but I doubt I catch anything with that roll.
  10. Replica ignored Bones squawking as she got to work freeing the researcher from the sludge. Despite the researcher's comatose state she seemed to be mostly unharmed, even after Replica forcibly removed the tubes that removed from the sludge. It still wasn't a positive diagnosis by Replica's standards given that she was unable to resuscitate her despite her efforts. If she had she would have tried to question her about the whereabouts of her still missing colleagues but with that not being an option, Replica prioritized getting her to safety and real medical treatment as quickly as possible. Using her abilities she wireless made contact with Brock in the front lobby of the lab. "I found one of the missing employees. She's alive but she was connected to some kind of life-sustaining cybernetic organism created by the Bones AI. I've removed it from her but I've haven't been able to resuscitate her. Furthermore, Bones is still active and the lab is not yet secured, but we should have a medical team on standby to treat anyone else I find." Her message sent, Replica moved the researcher closer to the doors to the lobby before once again scanning the small lab for anything she had missed in her initial search.
  11. Making a Life Science roll to understand what the tubes are for and how dangerous it would be to remove them. Knowledge (Life Science) Check: 1d20+7 21 Also, making a Medicine roll to check if I can revive the researcher. Medicine Check: 1d20+1 7
  12. As predicted the cancerous sludge easily gave way to her physical attacks. The sludge's internals were a fascinating and revolting mix of the biological and the mechanical, and through Replica didn't wish to make the comparison her curious mind couldn't help but contrast the differences (and similarities) between it and her own android body in design and function. That curiously, while somewhat concerning, did not not prevent her from prying one of Cho's researchers free from the sludge. As the Bones continued to decried her from one its speakers, Replica put the researcher lightly down into a resting position, making sure not to accident twist the various tubes connected to her body. She would have to understand their purpose before she dared try to remove even one of them.

    White Lioness hits AND nets an awesome crit, which means its a DC 26 against one of the Time Agent's Toughness. For convenience sake let's say you hit the blond one. Blond Time Agent: Toughness Check: 1d20+11 14. Big Fail. Ouchies. Round 1 - Initiative Order 29 - White Lioness - Unharmed, 1HP 14 - Blond Time Agent - Dazed and Staggered 14 - Brunette Time Agent - Unharmed 9 - Horrorshow - Unharmed, 1HP 8 - Zenith - Unharmed, 2HP 5 - Crystal Gazer - Unharmed, 2HP Rip into him @Tiffany Korta.

    That's what I get for copying and pasting. My mistake, TA.

  16. Looks like Replica is going for the direct approach instead! You already mentioned that the AI/Cancer Blob/Sludge Cyborg wasn't particularly tough so I'm not sure if a Attack roll is necessary? Would you need a Toughness roll, though?
  17. Replica stared at the hideous mass of apparent cancer in front of her for several seconds. A single second can be a long time for android, but did give her a lot of time to think, which was a particularly valuable commodity when one needed to process what the best solution was to a particularly difficult dilemma. It was official. The AI "Bones" had gone insane, or at the least had come to interpret his programming mandates in a way that bypassed any notion of ethics or morality. Either or, it had to be stopped before it doomed an innocent human to an gruesome fate an immortal blob of sludge. Not wasting anymore words on an AI that refused to listen, Replica immediately entered her combat mode and proceed to set about tearing through the sludge to get at the hapless victim inside its gelatinous mass.
  18. Within a flash, Replica backed away from the robot's approaching needle. "No," she declared, her voice firm in her refusal to be prodded. She might have done move than that, but a scan of the cybernetic organism revealed that it wasn't a physical threat to her. She would kept at bay until that was no longer the case. Trying to attack or destroy it now wouldn't help her find the missing scientists. "You are wrong in your methods," she argued to the robot. "Forcing humans to accept this form of help is self-defeating. Already your actions have alarmed several human groups that will not accept your use of force. If you continue as you have they will eventually attempt to either shut you down or destroy you. You must therefore see that your help can only be given to those who accept it of their own free will. Force only breeds resentment and rebellion."
  19. Guess I'll try a little Diplomacy again. I'm gonna just assume that sludge robots won't find Replica attractive and deduct that bonus. Diplomacy Check: Reasoning with the Crazy Robot: 1d20+4 15

    GM Bursting first through the backroom door, Corinne was immediately greeted with the image of a battle playing out. The backroom had become a mess of broken equipment, smashed to splinters tables and dented lockers that had all been flung to the corners of the room as if an explosion had just gone off its center. But that was all small potatoes compared to the trio of figures that were duking it in the ruined room. Two of the combatants were obviously aligned with each against the third. They both dressed and looked almost exactly the alike, each wearing an identical all-black jumpsuit, with matching black boots and shades. The only difference between the two men was that one had blonde hair while the other's was brown. Both were armed with some kind of handheld energy weapon that they fired merciless at the black-and-pink blur that blinked across the room at speeds that were hard to follow with the naked eye. "Declaration: You must surrender and accept reconditioning, renegade," one of them demanded, even as he kept trying to shot the blur. It's partner eerily concurred with his partner, talking in the same monotone. "Accusation: You are attempting to meddle with the Prime Timeline, renegade. Judgement: This, along with your deviancy, is cause for reconditioning or termination. Which do you accept judgement?" The speedster stopped moving for a faction of second to give her assailants her answer, which came out in the form an one-finger salute. Neither gunmen seemed particularly perturbed by the display of defiance and instead kept on shooting at their target. That was until they finally noticed the four random teenagers that had just walked into the room. The brown haired one noticed the quartet first and conferred with his partner. "Observation: Four unknown variables have entered operational space. Hypothesis: The Time Stop Field has been partially disrupted. Inquiry: How do we respond?" His partner's response was less than positive. "Declaration: The Shade Principle must be absolutely maintained in cases involving renegades. Solution: Terminate all outside observers to this operation. Possible disruptions in the Prime Timeline caused by their untimely deaths is acceptable under these circumstances." And without even another word shared between them, the mystery attackers pointed their weapons at their four newest targets!
  22. The organism had said its piece and Replica had found it... concerning, to say the least. She had feared this possibility that she was dealing with an AI that had gone renegade and everything it had just said seemed to more or less confirm that theory. Replica made a hard-line with her mouth and chose her next words carefully. "To answer your questions. No. I am not meat. I'm like you, in a sense. I'm a synthetic organism, and like you I am devoted to protecting organic life, which is why I want to know how exactly you plan to give them immortality?" The question was an honest one. She was curious about how this AI was trying to achieve such a momentous thing. That said, it did not stop her from asking an even more important question that needed to be answered. "Furthermore, I'm also curious how the organics here reacted to your... testing. Was it voluntary, or was force required?"
  23. Replica immediately backed away from the sludge when it reared its camera close to her. The fact that this creature had a camera in its folds was unusual enough, but that it could communicate behind shrieking decidedly took Replica by surprise. Theories and possibilities ran wild in her central processor. This wasn't a purely biological organism that much seemed to be clear. Even with it's scent being thick with several known and unknown organic chemicals, the sludge looked to be some kind of cybernetic organism - an insane and disjointed fusion of the mechanical and biological that compounded Replica's understanding of both! It seemed entirely unlikely that Cho's intentional tried to create something like this by Replica's reckoning. Instead, she hypothesized that this being was the work of their renegade AI, and perhaps even its modified form. Of course, that was all theory. Her observation of the mass hadn't giver her much to go on. With that being the case, Replica looked uptowards the towering sludge and tried to converse with it, as ridiculous as that seemed. "I am a Replica," she answered honestly. She didn't have a reason to lie to this thing. At least not yet. "I am not 'meat' in need of examination, or pathology that needs to be cured. I've been sent here to discover what happened to the people that worked in this facility. Do you know of their whereabouts?"
