  1. Right, Aiko has 2 points available (having spent 158 out of 160, up till now that is). First of all this: should look like this: Second - Please lower her ranks in Computers, Craft [Electronics], Craft [Mechanical] and Knowledge [Technology] by one each, freeing up 1pp for a total of 3 available. Third - Increase Int by 2, leaving 1pp Fourth - Add Evasion to her feats Code blocks presented here for your convenience.

    "I was not aware I'd acquired any kind of fame or notoriety on campus, but since I know of no other with that name I do suppose it's me." Aiko had noticeably calmed down by the end of the sentence. Internally she'd been reviewing the recent events, examining the context more closely and evaluating her responses. The find just slightly further back in the memory banks that she'd left the door open put a rather different slant to everything else. The rather unplatable truth was that she'd gotten sloppy. "And now I, Aiko Karakuri, must apologize to you Wilder-san. My violent actions against you were a result of hasty and mistaken conclusions built on faulty foundations. That does not excuse them, but I hope it goes some way to explaining them."
  3. If I can regain some momentum with my posting I'd say Aiko's up for it.

    Suspended in midair by her opponent's mastery of sonic vibrations Aiko struggles for a few moments, discovers she's unable to make any headway towards freedom. So, with escape at least temporarily out of reach the gynoid relaxes; no sense in damaging her servos for no gain. She took a second to replay what he'd said from the moment she entered before saying anything. Then, using a digital command to actually turn on the lights, she took a deep breath, actually just using the simulation equipment she had for it, and replied. "Alright, as long as you don't try anything with my sisters." At this point the more organised parts of her mind had gotten their cohesion back a bit flagged who the young man in front of her. A faint but to the young man noticeable look of recognition spread across Karakuri's face. "Warren?"
  5. Now I'll just use GM Fiat against Aiko, she's not getting out of Rift's remote grapple and'll have to talk.
  6. And Aiko fails against that. Round 2: Grapple check vs DC 39 (1d20+20=35) And according to ourHouse Rules she's therefore pinned.

    The Guitar Genius's words weren't making it through, not immediately at least. Instead Karakuri was in the midst of flipping up to and off the roof of the room to attack from an unexpected angle. Unfortunately she realised just as she was in the process of pushing off from the roof that her current angle of attack would result in her crashing into Aki's bed if she missed, and possibly if she hit but couldn't push off again properly. So the gynoid was forced to make a very quick, and a bit dirty, correction which ended up causing her to miss. But at least she missed both the beds and the intruder.
  8. Right, Aiko isn't going to start listening right now. Instead she'll take 10 for a DC 37 Acrobatic Bluff as a move action courtesy of her Challenge feat and make another attack roll. Round 2: Standard Attack vs Defence 21, DC 25 Toughness check vs nonlethal damage if it hits (1d20+10=14), which misses whether or not Rift somehow makes that DC 37 check.

    The moment Karakuri saw the door was open she knew something was up. Her no longer quite so clear mind didn't recall that she'd 'simply' forgotten to close it when she left, so the gynoid jumped to the conclusion that mischief was afoot. A quick look at the door mechanism showed no signs of a forced entry, meaning whoever did it was either skilled or had powers of a more subtle nature than brute force. In either case she had to protect her sisters, so the blue haired one quietly went down the stairs without giving the command to turn on the lights. When the gynoid reached the bottom she saw the intruder, and without pondering the situation for more than a fraction of a second arrived at a conclusion: this man was here either for her or her sisters. With a cry of "Away from my sisters!" Aiko launched herself into a flying kick, her right foot rebounding slightly from the intruders head and she slipped into a more proper fighting stance.
  10. Right, Aiko makes her snap decision (and with it a misunderstanding) and fighty times are here. Aiko simply moves up and attacks. Round 1: Standard Attack vs Defence 21, DC 25 Toughness check vs Nonlethal Damage if hit (1d20+10=30) So, a crit; that's a DC 30 check then. And if Rift is stunned from that there's a Knockback of [10 (Dam) +5 (Crit) - 5 (Rift's Knockback modifier) = 10 = 1000ft] to consider, given that he'll plow into a concrete [Toughness +8] wall long before the end of a thousand feet flight that'd result in a DC 23 check too. At least Rift gets a shiny new HP for Aiko effectively stealing the Initiative straight off (and the entire fight is a bit of a complication) which puts his total at 4.

    The room in front of Warren seemed some kind of mix between a hospital room and a workshop of some kind. Well maintained tools hanging from the walls and mostly covering a few benches. Nuts, bolts, washers and sundry were in evidence in the open drawer of one of the cabinets. Cables and wires were also quite in evidence. On the wall just opposite the entrance was a poster portraying and labeling the Angel Androids, posing and smiling for the camera. And as more or less the centerpiece of the room two of those depicted on the poster, the blonde and black-haired one, lay resting on a pair of hospital beds. Still dressed in their somewhat old-fashioned 'sailor' style school uniforms the pair looks like they might be sleeping, expect for the fact there's no rising and falling of the chest to indicate breathing.
  12. Hmm, despite what I said earlier I might be able to pull of GMing this. In a not very fast way though. My mind's coughed up a bit more detail, and if I do end up GMing this I do believe the bit about them radioactive might well get left out. I should probably be something of a last resort mind you, most threads I've GMed around here have died before ending.
  13. Rift stumbles across Aiko's sisters, misunderstandings and fighty times ahead.
  14. Aiko Karakuri had routine of sorts, she'd fallen into it months ago. At least thirty minutes a day spent on personal maintenance, basically the entirety of the gynoid's version of keeping up a healthy exercise, diet and sleeping routine. Another thirty to forty minutes or so spent just browsing the web, which translated into a bit more than twice the possible man-hours a human could spend on it given the speed her mind speed through the data. An hour spent on the blue haired young 'woman's' business, doing translations on commission, cleaning up scans in the process, and on occasion doing mechanical work/repairs. Then the remaining 20+ hours were spent pouring over the intricate coding which governed her unfortunate siblings. The pseudo-teen had already spent hundreds of thousands of man-hours, high mental operating speeds were useful at times, slaving away but success still eluded her. More often than not spending the entire day in a robotics workshop beneath Claremont the blue eyed robot didn't venture out of sight of the lifeless and still forms of her sisters if she could help it. But today had been one of those days when she did need to. As she was finishing up after servicing and tuning an engine for one of the students, and for a slight bit monetary compensation of course (parts didn't grow on trees after all) some small part of her mind understood she had problems, plural that is. But still, the main part of her ignored that and once more headed back to try and find some way of copying a miracle.
  15. While I doubt my ability to GM such an event (at least in my current, debilitated state) I'd love to throw Aiko into the ring for this.
  16. Aiko and Dragonfly meet while tackling a small gang with Forge tech. Combat will be all minion, shouldn't be too hard.
  17. Nearly two weeks worth of night patrols without any trouble outside of a lost cat. Either I need to change my style, or me and the rest have been succesful enough to put ourselves out of work. Or perhaps I've just had a spate of good luck, or the crime rate has hit an unusual lull, or something. Alex was out and about like she usually was, morphed into something decidingly less threatening than her normal amazon-esque form and out acting as both bait and hook. Wait, someone's on that roof over there. Better check it out. Ducking into the first alleyway to come up further down the street it took but a moment for Mongrel Angel to drop disguise and open up one of her gateways to a spot a little behind where she'd noticed the rooftop figure. Stepping through the dark angel took a moment to glance over the rear of the white clad figure. Seems to be in good shape, and in that outfit he's either not intending to skulk about or is a complete and utter novice at it without much in the way of brains. Dammit, I know I recognise it from somewhere. Resting her right hand on her hip and tilting her body somewhat to the left she called out to him. "Heya, looking for someone?"

  19. During the brief time from the moment the challenge had been offered to when Kurt moved the joystick the gynoid had been scouring the net (and other available sources) for relevant information. So when she got the point of choosing her character she wasn't exactly unprepared. Chun-Li appealed to her, both due to her capability in game and what Aiko had found regarding her personality. "I am not exactly clueless. Though I suspect you will win quite handily to begin. Shall we commence?"
  20. Right, updates. Aiko 1pp to spend - Drop Datalink from 3 to 1 3pp to spend - Add Communicate 1 [Radio] 2pp to spend - Add Power Reserve 1 [Communicate [Radio], Datalink] (2pp) 0pp to spend Code: [b]Communicate 1[/b] [Radio] [10ft/100ft/1000ft] [Power Reserve] (1pp) [b]Datalink 1[/b] [10ft/100ft/1000ft] [Power Reserve] (1pp) [b]Power Reserve 1[/b] [Communicate [Radio], Datalink] (2pp) Mongrel Angel 1pp to spend - Change this: Teleport 5 (Flaws: Long-range only; Power Feats: Alternate Power 2) [7pp] AP: Teleport 1 (Extras: Portal; Power Feats: Progression [10ftX10ft]) AP: Dimensional Pocket 1 (Extras: Continuous Duration; Flaws: Grappling Required; Power Feats: Progression 1] into this: Teleport 6 (Flaws: Long-range only; Power Feats: Alternate Power 2) [8pp] AP: Teleport 1 (Extras: Portal; Power Feats: Change Direction, Progression [10ftX10ft]) AP: Dimensional Pocket 1 (Extras: Continuous Duration; Flaws: Grappling Required; Power Feats: Progression 2] Code: [b]Teleport 6[/b] ([i]Flaws[/i]: Long-range only; [i]Power Feats[/i]: Alternate Power 2) [8pp] [u]AP:[/u] [b]Teleport 1[/b] (Extras: Portal; Power Feats: Change Direction, Progression [10ftX10ft]) [u]AP:[/u] [b]Dimensional Pocket 1[/b] ([i]Extras[/i]: Continuous Duration; [i]Flaws[/i]: Grappling Required; [i]Power Feats[/i]: Progression 2] Done by AA
  21. Not having anything to gather up Aiko takes the offered hand as soon as it is offered. Upon arrival the gynoid's optical sensors sweep over the area in heartbeat identifying the location, then linger on the sight of her sisters being procured. After assessing, such as was possible purely visually, that they're basically fine, though perhaps in need of a wipedown, she turns to the green haired lady. "Thank you again Fleur-san. She says bowing deeply. "I wish you good fortune in the future." After moving over and picking up the pair of deactivated gynoids Karakuri continued. "Now I shall need to speak with Summers-sama, so I bid you good night. I hope we will meet again sometime."
  22. "Very well Kurt-san, I accept your challenge!" Having just finished up where she was Aiko didn't really waste time in answering the challenge. The energy manipulator barely manages to finish one fight before the gynoid is behind him. "Then shall we?"
  23. "Those 'bots' can be pretty hard to deactivate. And we don't have time for a stealthy entry, we're at the 'chase escaping villain' stage and not the 'infiltrate nefarious hideout' one." Aiko anwers Sparksmith's question. "Besides, I'm hardly a focused shadow warrior. If we don't spot him right away when we get there I'll tap into the security network and try and find him that way, if he's tampered with that then we'll at least know that much. If he hasn't it could save us a bit of time."
