  1. "I don't have a specific timetable, but I'd ideally like it gone by the end of the summer. I agree with testing the teleporter matrix. We have sensors that should be able to detect the mass of the Doom Forge and map it out in it's entirety. We map out the Doom Forge, key it to that specific mass as much as we can, and then test the teleportation matrix on an equivalent amount of soil somewhere else, just to make sure it'll work without issues. We can see about putting that soil back immediately. Obviously, we won't be returning the Doom Forge. Taking what you just said in mind, I think I can whip up a new proprietary drone control unit to plant the teleportation matrix."
  2. "That is an excellent point, that's why we've brought people in. As for the teleport effect, well, I'll need to determine the precise dimensions of the Doom Forge in order to make sure we can get rid of it. The Terminus is all about entropy, so I have to assume we would need to alter our calculations to potentially compensate for any interference the Doom Forge itself could provide." He sat back, and took a deep breath. "I've come up with a series of pylons that would relay the teleportation signal between them, based roughly on how my own teleportation powers work. I would place them around the Doom Forge and key them specifically to the Doom Forge's own...unique energy signal. Then, the entire Doom Forge would be teleported elsewhere." He looked at the other three people at the table. "Thoughts?"
  3. Voltage took a deep breath. "Welcome, everyone, thanks for coming. We need to get rid of this thing. I don't know what sort of danger it presents now." "I have tried to study the Doom Forge to the best of my ability. I'm not an expert on the Terminus, though I do know a lot about technology. My first proposal is simple, in a way." "A series of pylons, located around the Doom Forge that would teleport it off world. I realize that doing so could potentially violate treaties or be seen as an act of war, which is why I'd propose teleporting to a location no one would go. The outer edge of a black hole." "If I'm right, the black hole's effect on time and space will render the Doom Forge harmless. I admit, though, I don't know all of the dangers that the Doom Forge could present. I'm open to other ideas, of course." "We would, of course, have to make sure it's empty of all life, and that the area is cleared before we place the pylons."
  4. May 17th, 2021 Early Afternoon The Lab Voltage entered the room, and took a breath. A small crew of drones was busily flying about the room, dropping off pitchers of water and glasses. In addition, each seat had a tablet. He had sent word to Miss A that he was coming up with plans to get rid of the Doomforge in Kingston. She had agreed. He also sent word to the Atoms, in case they had any ideas. They sent their newest ally, Rocket, who would represent them in the discussion. He had plans to expand the scope of the discussion, and then the collective efforts to get rid of it, once the initial discussions were well underway. If he had too many voices in the early phases of the discussion, it might make it harder to establish. He took a deep breath. "I'm ready." He said over the comm.
  5. "I'd like to be there, too." Voltage said. "Both so I can see how you feel about it and to just see the work pay off. I'd like to see your reaction when you get a chance to use it." He set a reminder to contact Claremont so he could make sure they were aware he was coming. He knew where the school was and visited the campus a couple of times. He also wanted to observe the fabrication process. He really appreciated an efficient process.
  6. Mali, seeing as how her friends would also be joining her, gave a wave to the rest of them before she threw her towel over her shoulder and walked towards the pool. She certainly didn't mind the company. There were several ways to relax, and one involved fun with friends. "Meet you guys at the pool." She said, vanishing out of sight.
  7. It's time to get rid of the Doomforge in Kingston. Voltage, supergenius tech savvy hero and electricity controller extraordinaire, has some ideas, but he wants to contact the best and brightest in brains to help formulate a plan for getting rid of it. This may also involve combat, I dunno, I'm not actually running it, just getting the ball rolling. THIS is a possible thread wherein the characters can discuss plans and ideas, which means it's for super smart heroes who are have an expertise in technology, or for anyone who has enough knowledge of the Terminus itself to have valuable input. So who's interested?
  8. Crimson Tiger Mali was in the middle of finishing a drink, with a towel over her shoulders and a pair of sandals. "I'm heading to the pool myself in a moment." She shrugged. She was already in her bathing suit. "I need to relax a bit, been working too hard. I can't risk straining anything. A relaxing soak should help." She motioned to Daphne. "Shall we?"
  9. "Hm, good point. If it's easy to repair, she can do it herself, or with some assistance." Voltage started thinking. "Though, a diagnostic tool might be helpful, as well. Even if we make things as easy to replace as possible, sometimes determining what the problem is takes as much effort as the actual work itself." He scratched his chin. "Yes, hm, diagnostic software, simple code sequence, smartphone app compatible. A device that outputs the necessary diagnostic information through a simple USB cable, with software that can be loaded onto a smartphone. Open the app on a phone, plug the cable into the phone, and, in a few minutes, it can tell you what, exactly, needs replacement. What do you guys think?" He still liked his lab facility idea, for repairs that might be difficult in the field.
  10. "Well, to be honest." Voltage chuckled. He dissolved into a silvery bolt of lightning that dissolved into nothing in the air. At almost the same moment, another bolt of electricity appeared elsewhere in the room, into which he reappeared. "I don't drive. I fly, I teleport, I can move metal with my mind, I can talk to machines. I have to remember to do basic exercise. My muscles atrophied pretty bad for a while there." He admitted. "As for repairs, no, I don't tend to let other people work on my projects. Most of my gear is self-designed."
  11. The drone dutifully fetched a bottle of cold water, and sat it near Ryder, before flying off. "As for parts, well, 3D printing and fabrication technology is far, far beyond what it once was. Once it's designed and fabricated, we can simply retain the schematics. If it needs repaired or serviced, well. Bring it back here, we'll do a thorough scan of it, find whatever is malfunctioning, and simply have the required parts replaced or repaired. You don't need to find parts if you designed all of the parts and retain the schematics." A drone came in, carefully carrying a screen, hovering close to Danica. "This is just a quick sketch." On the screen was a rough approximation of a Segway, sitting on a raised platform with a ramp. Moments later, a series of rough looking robotic arms reached down and, through the use of various tools, disassembled the Segway, found a bad part, and removed it. Then, a new part was brought out, the Segway was reassembled, and a rough humanoid figure guided it down off the ramp and away. "A repair dock." He said. "I know you would like something solid and reliable, something you can trust, and something that you can keep using for a long time. Once we have your new transport designed, you can bring it here to the lab. We'll scan it and all of it's parts, fabricate replacement parts, and reassemble it."
  12. "I'm not sure if she can tell you're trying to talk to her, or if she's ignoring you." Voltage said. A tiny drone came flying over with a fresh, cold bottle of water dangling from it. It deposited the water on a small table near Danica, and then flew off. "I use that system myself, sometimes. I need to keep hydrated while I'm working. I, uh, sometimes forget to drink...and eat. I have it programmed to fetch bottles of water on an hourly basis, and snacks at other intervals." He said, sheepishly. The drone fetched a bottle of water for him. "Would you like anything to drink?" He offered to Ryder again.
  13. Gust Power Level: 8/10 (150/150) Unspent Power Points: 0 Trade-Offs: None In Brief: Teenage superhero with the power to generate bursts of air from his limbs Catchphrase: Theme: Alternate Identity: Tristan Jacobs (Secret) Birthplace: Saginaw, Michigan Residence: Saginaw, Michigan Base of Operations: Claremont Academy Occupation: Student Affiliations: Family: Larry, Alexander (parents), Sarah (sister) Description: Age: 16 (July 30th, 2005) Gender: Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5'6" Weight: 160 lbs Eyes: Brown Hair: Blond Tristan is below average in height, with a solid frame used to physical labor. He prefers that his mop of hair stay somewhat long. He looks far more skeptical than a kid his age should. Despite wanting to design a costume, he doesn't have much talent for it, so he just wears the Claremont Academy uniform. HIs sole customization is a pair of goggles. He claims that they'll help keep the air out if his eyes, but the truth is that he thinks they look cool. History: Tristan was adopted at the age of two by Larry and Alexander. He doesn't remember anything before then. His parents have hinted that they know a few things, but he doesn't care. He's always figured that if his mom had wanted him, she would have kept him. When he was six, they adopted his little sister, Sarah. Larry is a computer programmer, while Alexander helps manage a small construction company. He lived a very typical life until he was thirteen years old. He was climbing a tree when he fell out. His powers activated before he hit the ground, and he found that he could adjust the pressure, using the burst of air to slow his fall. Since that day, he has trained rigorously to get his powers under control. He has no idea why he developed the ability to shoot bursts of air from his hands. All the scientific community has been able to tell him is that it's likely some genetic mutation, a consequence of either his biological mother, or father. Personality & Motivation: If the saying 'fortune favors the bold' were truth, Tristan would be the luckiest boy alive. He's a daredevil, learning to understand his powers by using them. He's tough enough to withstand things ordinary people can't, and quick enough to get himself out of trouble, at least, he thinks so. The idea of being a superhero sounds amazing to him. While he has a good heart, the idea of adventure and excitement are the real draws for him. Powers & Tactics: Tristan is fast. His bursts can allow him to move in all three directions, giving him a great deal of maneuverability. He uses this in conjunction with his extraordinary durability to slam himself fist or foot first into enemies, and to get out of the way quickly. However, the bursts are more effective when they're launched against a solid surface, so it's harder for him to adjust his movement in mid-air. In addition, the blasts don't extend very far from his limbs, a foot or two at most, so they're unreliable for direct offense. Power Descriptions: Tristan's bursts of air look like just that, powerful blasts of air. They're usually accompanied by a loud whooshing sound, though they can sound louder and more concussive if a burst is particularly strong. Complications: I Need Space!: Tristan's powers are less effective in tight quarters.

  14. Voltage nodded. His super enhanced mind scanned the partition, looking for any signs of weakness or vulnerability. "No weaknesses or vulnerabilities found." he said. He stood and walked to where Miss Americana asked them to go. He was in new territory. He had done a lot of contract work, a lot of inventing and lab work, but this was government secrets. This was strange, new territory for him. He was cautious and wary. He hadn't been in a fight in years, he certainly hoped not to do it today.
