  1. "I used to think Bedlam didn't have these kinds of things." John said, bending over, his breath ragged. "I've never seen anything like that before. Have you?" He looked down at the fallen man in white. "He did get back up before." John said. "I wouldn't be surprised if he did again." He looked over at Arrowhawk. "Back when I was a cop, the criminals were a bit more ordinary." He looked up to the sky. "I have no idea what's been happening to this city lately."
  2. The man in white was dead, but he'd survived something bad before, John saw. John jumped straight up to avoid the car. He was surprised at his own reflexes, and took the opportunity to bring both fists down on top of the creature's head. It had no finesse, but John didn't need finesse. As soon as he recovered from landing, he reared back and kicked the buckled over 'officer' in the head as hard as he could. He stumbled back. Something flashed in his mind. A football field, bleachers, the smell of autumn leaves in the air and a pair of uprights in front of him. Was that Stephen's memory? Someone else's? It vanished as he cleared his head. "...the hell was that?" It was a valid question, either the about the creature or the flash of memory.
  3. Reflex save; 9 ...Imma say no HP to reroll, and; 26 Gonna power attack all out and use extra effort; 13 Surge for a second hit, also power attack 21 That's 2 DC28 TOU saves
  4. I know I've been in chat recently, but it's obvious that I haven't really returned to posting. I've been living in Louisiana for a while now, and I think I've gotten a good rhythm down. I'd like to begin a return to posting regularly. Apologies to anyone who was relying on me when I made my admittedly abrupt lifestyle change.
  5. John avoided the creature's attempt to grab him, ducking back before swinging wild at it's head. He could feel the impact, he could tell it was a solid hit. This person or thing was refusing to go down, and it was beginning to piss him off. John could tell that they'd hit it more than a couple of times, so why wasn't it slowing down. "What the hell are you?" John roared, stepping back into a ready stance. "Bedlam is just full of weirdos nowadays."
  6. 20 For the opposed grapple check, not good. Gonna burn an HP for a reroll. 34 Much better I believe it's John's turn, so he's gonna haul off and punch this guy. 23
  7. John stepped forward quickly, closing distance in a blur. His was a practical fighting style, with basic punches, each one strong enough to crack concrete. He pivoted and swung hard at the 'officer' slamming his fist into the side of his head. John had no idea what this guy was or what his deal was, but punches seemed to affect him at least somewhat.
  8. 23 on an attack. John is going to move in and try to punch Officer Friendly.
  9. Okay, toughness roll; 10 haha, no. That's death. Try that again. Burning an HP to not die. 27 Boom!
  10. John jumped to his feet like a shot. He cracked his neck and stretched a bit even as he started walking towards the car. He looked far less injured than someone hit by a car should. His gait was almost casual, deliberately underselling the danger he could be in. This enemy was unnatural, and he knew it. Arrowhawk got the worst of it, he could tell. "Thanks for cracking my back for me." He said, stretching a couple more times as he closed the distance to stand next to Mr. Strix. "Been bugging me for days. Must have slept on it wrong." His stance and mannerisms changed completely, and he practically growled out. "So you gonna come out and get your ass handed to you, or what?"
  11. 23 For Acrobatics, to Instant Up. With that taken care of, John is gonna go for intimidate, maybe seeing him get up after being hit by a car will help the attempt; 26 This is to demoralize the driver
  12. Option 2, try to tank the car. 21 For the initial impact 14 Ehh, gonna burn an HP to save that; 9 That becomes a 19 then. 16 For Initiative, too
  13. Adam would have blushed, but he couldn't. Instead he did look bashful. "Thank you." He said. He offered his hand. "Would you like to dance?" Adam was not graceful, but he could manage to at least pretend to not be totally awful. Or at least, he hoped not to be that much more awful than anyone else. She was beautiful, and he felt incredibly self-conscious. He knew, distantly, that they didn't look bad together. His face was relatively scar and blemish free, but she was something else. He needed to keep his head on straight and his eyes on hers. Be polite, he thought to himself. Be polite.
  14. "Must be a supernatural cause, otherwise, this makes no sense." John said, looking at the scene intently. He knew of superheroes, of course. Bedlam had it's own supernatural residents, visible beneath the surface. He wondered how the gangs and thugs would feel, knowing that people like the man in white were in town. He could not, however, puzzle this out. So he began to search for yet more clues. You had to exhaust all evidence at the scene of the crime first, after all. Specifically, he focused on the tracks, and the wall. He didn't question how the man in white knew who's blood it was. Probably a side effect of his own strange abilities.
