  1. July 4th, Monday, 2022, 4.33PM Sunset Hill, Emerald City, Oregon, USA One hour after a giant bowling ball almost crushed the Liberty Dome... Fort Cutler was well-named, a broad, square, red-brick mansion shouldering its way between other, milder mansions clustered at the top of Sunset Hill, overlooking the grey Pacific Ocean and the glittering twin Emeralds below. It was an open secret in the contacts that the Clines maintained that some of the most successful supercriminals in the world, retired by reason of age or injury, lived behind these handsome doors. Richard Cline was looking for two in particular, Preston Cutler and Josephine Sherman. A few decades back, they'd done crimes as the masked duo of the Sportsman and Princess Poison. Tony played the Robin Hood gimmick by robbing sports events and showing up world champions at their specialties (barring a spectacular defeat at the hands of Bruce Lee), while Josie prowled the society circuit for daring (and deadly) jewel thefts. Both had been pals and accomplices of Richard's in his youth, and they'd eagerly kept in touch well into their current age, even asking him and Paige to be godparents for their now-grown son, Michael. And, very recently, a giant bowling ball exactly like one of Preston's had nearly crushed the Liberty Dome where Richard, Paige, and their children had been. The Cutlers hadn't picked up the phone when called, and somehow couldn't be contacted by less mundane means. And so, here he was. In answer to his knock, the door emblazoned with a stylized 'C-S' swung in, and a trim old man with a neat black suit, a bristling mustache and great wings of white hair peered out. It took a second before his resemblance to Diomedes, one of the deadliest assassins of the 20th century and vicious rival to the second Bowman, sunk in. "Oh!" he blinked, smiling warmly, "Young Mr. Cline! What a pleasant surprise! Mr. and Mrs. Cutler are in the garden, hosting an Independence Day party. Dr. Devastator just got out of prison, they thought it fortuitous. Shall I show you to them, sir?" He stepped partly aside, silently acknowledging that Richard knew the way and could get there *very* quickly.
  2. OOC thread for this thread with @Avenger Assembled's Fast-Forward visiting a family of supervillains. For starters, Notice (min DC 15, max DC 30), for clues in the house At a glance, Richard notices that the son he's met, Michael, quickly changed from a gentle, normal, if unusually athletic child into a glowering pinnacle of physicality that rivals Jack Simmons' propaganda art. Mementos of his life events, especially sports trophies, are displayed prominently throughout the house. There was also a daughter the Cutlers never mentioned, introduced or even hinted at, named 'Melissa', with much sparser and less-obvious tokens of her life. per 5 DC increments: 15 - Both appear to have attended the same Claremont-esque (but much larger, more modern and more thickly-populated) private school. Michael is surrounded in his photos by various flunkies and hangers-on and toadying faculty members, while Melissa is largely alone in hers. The one that isn't, showing her and a small group of other teens, has been vandalized and repaired. 20 - The clutter is so profuse that a slower eye wouldn't have noticed it, but several of the largest photos have been removed from the walls very recently, and smaller ones spread out to take up the space. Of particular interest is the one at the centre of a series showing Michael's rapid physical changes and increasing feats of strength and agility. 25 - Also removed are one of Preston's prized gimmick baseball bats, crossed with its twin over a mantlepiece, and replaced with an obviously normal one. The difference in dust makes clear that this didn't just happen recently, but today. 30 - There's a lavish, full-scale cross-section of the Liberty Dome in one of the sitting rooms, with a tiny 'X' drawn on the model's wall exactly where the real Dome was attacked.
  3. Rainshadow Power Level: 10 (150/151PP) Unspent Power Points: 1 Trade-Offs: +2 Defense / -2 Toughness In Brief: Weather-controlling salvage tug crewman plagued with visions of disaster. Catchphrase: Theme: Alternate Identity: Law Ming-Yang-Jin, "Marshall Law" (Secret) Birthplace: Emerald City, OR, USA Residence: Jadetown, Emerald City, OR Base of Operations: The Emerald Cities and the Pacific coast Occupation: Salvage tug sailor Affiliations: Tugger & Sons Ocean Salvage Co. Family: Law Yan/Dorcas Law (mother, adopted), Law Feng/Rebecca Law (mother, adopted) Description: Age: Date of birth: November 15th, 1995 Gender: Masc. Ethnicity: Chinese (Cantonese) Height: 6'6"/2m Weight: 280lbs/127kg Eyes: Brown Hair: Black Big, broad, and shaggy-headed, Ming's skin is tanned and weathered, his face is creased in a perpetual frown and his eyes are squinted from years at sea. He speaks curtly, with the harsh growl of a habitual smoker and drinker and a strong Emerald-Cantonese accent to the other languages he speaks. In his regular life, he wears loose grey hoodies, jeans and heavy boots while ashore, unless he has to be in church or somewhere fancy, in which case he wears a blue suit, combs his chest-length beard and ties his shoulder-length hair into a ponytail. Tense and unfriendly, Ming always seems to be braced for something, and often looks over his shoulder for seemingly no reason. As Rainshadow, Ming goes for the utilitarian with a simple green/blue poncho he stole from a police car, leather gloves, a balaclava and old-fashioned aviator goggles. He tries to cut a more classically-heroic and upbeat figure while in costume, even adopting a more neutral-American accent, since that's a tougher disguise to get through. History: Law Ming-Yang-Jin was taken at 8 months from the body of a Jane Doe admitted to the Emerald City University Medical Center in 1995, the victim of a hit-and-run. He was adopted a few months later, by cousins of the doctor who performed the operation, after a failed search for any possible relatives. His adopted parents worked on the old Bethlehem Heights waterfront, and as a small boy Ming came to love the great river and sea. He certainly got along better with the outdoors and birds better than other children. Even when he was young Ming knew something terrible was going to happen, very soon, and nobody listened when he tried to explain. His mothers did their best, but they had limited time to coax answers out of the boy as they juggled their work for the city's legitimate industries and the under-the-table work they had to do to pay off their debts to kindly old Uncle Zhi and his friends in the benevolent Dragon Society. By necessity Ming grew up fast, helping out where he could and keeping quiet about the harassment from other children, who smelled weakness in the shy boy. He learned to keep his visions to himself, and not to mention the strange moments when the rain poured down on his sadness and the clouds cleared in his joy. Somehow, the terrible thing and these changes in the weather were connected. He saw, clearest of all, a shattered fishing boat, surrounded by bodies, including one that he knew was his own. By the time he was 15 he was big, strong and experienced enough to join a salmon fishing boat and go to sea. Ming stepped aboard with a pounding heart, waving shakily to his mothers and a few friends come to see him off, and was overcome with homesickness as the ship chugged for the Pacific Ocean. They didn't make it out of the river mouth. A powerful storm roaring from nowhere drove them back up the Columbia River, stopping as abruptly as it began as the boat drifted, motor swamped and crew drenched, at the dock they'd set out from. Another try a few days later had the exact same outcome. A third nearly sank the boat. Ming knew then that he had to learn to control this, and went to the only man he could think of who could help: Uncle Zhi. The old man had sickened considerably since they'd first met years ago, and he was surprised and elated to hear from his "young associate" that Ming had the power to see the future and control the weather, and revealed that there had been others with similar gifts in his native Hong Kong; some had even come with the first groups of immigrants to the United States and used their powers to aid their fellow Chinese during the vicious nativist years. Zhi warned Ming to tell nobody else, to prevent his identity and powers from becoming linked, and to come back tomorrow to "sort out your future in our organization." The next morning Zhi was dead of a heart attack and his granddaughter Chen Feng-Li was in charge. Something discouraged Ming from going to her with his story and he went quietly back to work. He learned breathing exercises from a Buddhist monk to calm himself down, and went to sea. By slow, careful, hidden experimentation he learned to master his powers, to unleash storms or clear skies, to summon lightning or raise up mist, bringing forth searing heat or biting cold, and even how to fly and shield himself with swirling air-currents. From the fishing fleet he changed careers to the coastal rescue tugs, using his powers to soothe tempests and freshen good winds. Like everyone else in the Dragon's Eyes he became aware of the secret shadow lying across the cities, and unlike most decided to find out what it was. Unfortunately Ming isn't any kind of detective or scientist (outside some amateur meteorology and a passion for tidal physics), and his search has so far been fruitless. He's done good by those he can with his limited powers and even more limited means, but as the cities change and Max Mars' Ultio suits spread through the population, he knows it isn't enough. His flashes have grown worse, and what seemed merely "soon" when he was a child has become "imminent". Something is going to destroy the Emerald Cities, and Ming knows he can't stop it alone. Personality & Motivation: In his day-to-day life, Ming is generally cold and disinterested. His bad experiences as a child and life of secrecy and suspicion has left him without true friends and a certainty that if he had any they'd betray him somehow. But his heart is easily-melted, and he'll go to any lengths to help out someone in need, knowing all too well what if feels like to be alone. Unfortunately, he's also impatient and all too ready to turn to violence, thanks to finely-honed survival instincts from growing up in the periphery of competing street gangs in Jadetown. He's easily-nettled and struggles with backing-down and de-escalating, since restraint often just marked him as a target in his childhood. Powers & Tactics: Far from bulletproof, Rainshadow relies on mobility and the concealing effects of his powers to protect himself. He keeps on the offense at all times, sweeping enemies out of cover and keeping them corralled so he can subdue them without risk to others. Power Descriptions: Rainshadow's powers are those of the storm, from howling wind to crackling lightning to clouds of water. His ability to control them is linked to a mutation that granted him psychic powers affecting the cosmic energies bombarding Earth. His hands glow a spectral green when using his powers, though the effect is hidden by his gloves, and there is a faint green sheen or outline on the output of his powers such as lightning bolts or clouds. Complications: Danger(Hunted): The secret supervillain cabal, the Chamber, has gotten wind of a new superhuman and will do its utmost to identify and subvert or eliminate them. Dialect: Ming learned how to talk, read and write several languages according to a vulgar vernacular common to Emerald City's Jadetown. The words he uses can sometimes be wildly offputting among more refined or even just polite society. Power(Backlash): Ming's powers do not make weather come from nowhere. There are repercussions to careless or extreme use. Responsibility(Stop the destruction of the Emerald Cities): Ming has foreseen the cataclysmic downfall of his home and everyone he's ever known, and is duty-bound to prevent it. Responsibility(Family): Ming loves his mothers dearly, and would take any action or pay any price to keep them safe. Secret(Identity): Ming and Rainshadow must never become linked. He tries to cover his tracks to prevent this. Threats of exposing him are taken very seriously.

  4. Player Name: Eternal Phoenix Character Name: Waverider Power Level: 12 (180/184 PP) Trade-Offs: +2 Damage, -2 Attack(Blast); +2 Attack, -2 Damage (Drain & Nauseate); +2 Toughness, -2 Defense Unspent PP: 4 In Brief: Normal teenage girl with dreams of deaf advocacy back slapped by irony, becomes deaf and mute vibration controller. Now she’s grown up and attending Emerald City University. Residence: Emerald City University Base of Operations: Emerald City Catchphrase: “…” Alternate Identities: Naomi Suleiman Identity: Secret Birthplace: Los Angeles, California Occupation: University Student Affliations: Spectacle (Los Angeles street level hero), a few old Claremont Academy friends Family: Armaan Suleiman (a lawyer), Jana Suleiman (a doctor), Saloni Suleiman (currently interning and married; no signs of powers), Navin Suleiman (first year Claremont Academy student; same powers as Naomi) Age: 21 Apparent Age: Early 20s. Gender: Female Ethnicity: Indian-American Height: 5’ 5” Weight: 115 Eyes: Dark Brown Hair: Black Description: Naomi is of Indian descent, which means chocolate skin and straight jet black hair. She keeps her hair cut just above her shoulders and her makeup is on the minimal side. Her clothes are quite preppy and put together. Usually a ruffled shirt and cute skirt with some ballet flats and tasteful jewelry. Her costume, originally a variation on the Claremont Academy costume, is now quite different. It is still a loose fitting bodysuit, but a ruffled knee length skirt and bolero jacket complete the ensemble. The skirt, sleeves of the jacket, shoes are golden in color. The bodysuit shirt is merely yellow. Howefer, the body of the jacket and legs of the bodysuit are a light lavender A set of embroidered silver concentric circles serve as her symbol. They are on both the bolero jacket and the bodysuit shirt, centered over the right pectoral. Her domino mask is also silver. History: Naomi was born in Los Angeles. No one knew it, but she’d been absorbing vibrations since she was a small bundle of cells in her mother’s womb. Which made the pregnancy slightly more…interesting…than most, but caused no real complications. Growing up, she was the source of the occasional mysterious loud bang, which gradually made her persona non grata among her peers. There were some earthquake scares as well (which really didn’t help), but those weren’t traced to her until later. However, there was one group that didn’t reject her for the occasional weirdness that surrounded her. They were the deaf and hearing impaired kids at her school. So she made friends, and learned sign language explicitly so she could talk to them. She was a normal kid, doing normal kid things. Then it happened. Summer break, 2014. Naomi was waiting for a friend downtown, having planned a beach day. They had agreed to meet at a parking garage, but her friend was late. So she’d stepped into the shade of the parking garage to wait. She felt the vibrations (not that she knew what they were at the time) churn inside her. This had happened many times before. See the mysterious loud noises and odd earthquake scares. The problem was that these were much stronger than before. They…hurt. She leaned against the wall of the parking garage. Her skin touched it, and instantly the mysterious force inside of her ripped its way out, with all the pain that verb implies. It was a sound and quake burst, at the same time, and with more force that she could conceive of. Her eardrums burst immediately. The cilla in her inner ear were smashed down. The bones in her inner ear shattered. The pain was immense. No one wouldn’t have screamed. Unfortunately, that was the last thing she should’ve done. The vibrations had found an easier way out, and tore her larynx to shreds on the way. No parking garage, even in Los Angeles, is built to take that kind of strain. Hell, the surrounding buildings were in trouble. Naomi might have even triggered a real earthquake and endangered the entire city. Except there just happened to be a hero in the area. Spectacle. Claremont class of 2008. The name…didn’t fit his powers. He was stronger, faster, and more durable than any unarmored human could possibly be, but it was his power of infinite capacity (but not infinite rate) energy absorption that saved the day. He chucked his groceries aside, and dove in to save a girl who was having a very bad day. He saved the city. He saved the neighborhood. He saved the girl. He even saved the parking garage attendant. Unfortunately, he couldn’t save the parking garage. It collapsed, crushing all the cars inside of it. Spectacle was not an idiot. He knew the girl, now unconscious, would be blamed. This wasn’t Freedom City. She ought to get away from the justice system, but the civil suits and media coverage would destroy her family. So he got gone, and fast. He dropped her off at a hospital in another district. Spectacle poked his head in now and again, while Naomi was recovering, making it clear in no uncertain terms that they needed to have a conversation. Something Had To Be Done, and such like. When they finally had it, she anxiously begged him not to ship her away just yet. Her parents would never allow it. She had friends here. She was still adjusting to her new life. And so on. He actually had no intention of doing that (otherwise he’d have spoken with someone at Claremont by now), but watched the girl squirm under the idea before announcing he’d train her. Spectacle always wanted a sidekick, after all. When Naomi protested even that much, he told her it was either that or being shipped away. He knew of someone who could be very persuasive, if it came to that. And so Waverider was born. After school training. The occasional easy mission. That sort of thing. When it came down to it, Spectacle was a good teacher, and his energy absorption and overall toughness helped make up for any…mistakes along the way. Until, around the end of the school year, he realized his pupil was growing past his skills. It was sad, but he had to revisit their initial Something Had To Be Done conversation. During this time, Naomi had gotten to know him, and on the whole he wasn’t a bad guy. A skilled and effective hero, who just so happened to be exasperatingly easygoing about everything under the sun. That said his relaxed deadpanning of virtually everything was funny when directed at others. Such as whoever was on the other end at that superhero school he was talking about. Leaving might not be so bad. Her family had grown a bit distant from her, which made some sense. She couldn’t hear them anymore, and sign language was a pain in the butt to learn without a powerful motivation and sufficient spare time to do so. She knew that from personal experience. She also knew the person on the other end of that call (who was growing ever more exasperated, a position with which she both sympathized and found funny) would easily persuade her parents to let her go. And honestly? The prospect was a little exciting now. Sure, leaving her friends would be sad. But she’d be going to a place where she didn’t have to hide her powers from everyone around her. She didn’t have to pretend she didn’t notice when people spoke to her. And, like virtually every teenager ever born, she was always up for a bit of an adventure. Well, she had her Claremont adventures. Some were fun. Some were horrific and traumatizing. But like all things good and bad, they came to an end. She was ready for college, and Emerald City’s elite Malory College had shown interest. Enough to get her to pack up and move cross country again. But when she arrived she found out hadn’t quite made the cut for Malory College. The money was there. Her grades were good enough. There were no problems with her application. Her interview even went well. Yet, mysteriously, she was not selected to join that year’s class. She’d heard good things about Emerald City University’s Pre-Law program. And she didn’t feel like moving again. So far it’s been okay. Truthfully she’d been a little bored. She’d put away her costume after leaving Claremont. She’d wanted to focus on her studies. And avoid insane cannibalistic Morlocks from another dimension. But…she missed it. With great power, there must also come great responsibility too. And she had kept practicing with her powers. She had tried to play it off as needing to discharge vibrational energy, but she knew better even then. So she dusted off the ol’ costume, gave a few individualizing tweaks, and Waverider was back on the scene. . Personality & Motivation: Naomi isn’t one of those ultra-driven hero types, or so she thought. She was a good person, and she had no problem helping out people in trouble, but her sights remained set squarely on her dream of being a lawyer who advocates for deaf rights. Maybe even politics, if she could swing it. She tried not being a hero for a while to focus on her studies, but she simply can’t help getting involved. She was rather remarkably well adjusted. Then she ran into said insane cannibalistic Morlocks from another dimension. She got therapy, processed the trauma, and moved past it. Or again, so she thought. The truth is, she kind of took the first opportunity to get the hell out of Freedom City. She had no problems with Woodsman, but keep his terrible, doomed world as far away from hers as humanly possible. Outwardly, she remains calm and rational, only dwelling on the things she can change. But on the inside she’s made a promise to herself. One she didn’t acknowledge even having made until putting her costume back on. Power and responsibility go hand in hand. They always have. But it has to be more than that. Simply being too squeamish to let people get hurt in front of you isn’t enough. Life is short. Hate is foolish. Love is wise. Always try to be nice. Never fail to be kind. Don’t surrender to fear. Laugh hard. Run fast. Live well. And never, ever give up. Power Descriptions: Naomi is a vibration controller. She can theoretically induce, increase, or reduce vibrations in virtually any material. As sound is simply vibration that can be heard by humans, she can manipulate that as well, although somewhat less effectively at present. She has a personal force field made of high resonance vibrations to protect her. She does not, however, generate the vibrations out of nothing. In fact, her body absorbs and stores vibratory energy for later use. This renders her immune to vibratory (and thus sonic) attacks of any kind, and provides a measure of defense against bludgeoning attacks. She can feel vibrations on her skin, as well. Practice allows to even differentiate between people’s voices. However, actually telling what they’re saying on a consistent basis is currently beyond her, and thus she must lip read or have the speaker(s) use sign language instead. Powers & Tactics: Naomi is essentially a blaster. She’s got a few neat tricks, like deadening the sound in an massive area, increasing the vibrations in a target’s inner ear to sickening levels, or unleashing a deafening wall of sound in a small area. However, the core of all of that is blasting away with vibratory energy. With both Accurate Attack and Power Attack she can shift the damage and accuracy of her attacks around, so it’s not quite as one dimensional as it sounds. Her force field is a heck of a thing. It increases her physical durability by several orders of magnitude, to the degree that it would take heavy artillery or cruise missiles to harm her with it active. And, of course, vibratory/sonic attacks are entirely useless, as she absorbs them. Complications: I’m Sorry, I Didn’t Catch That: Naomi’s inner ear is destroyed. She can’t hear anything. At all. Whatsoever. That said, she does have the ability to feel vibrations. If she focuses, she can even understand speech. Unless, of course, there’s too much background noise. Or she’s tired. Or distracted. You name it. Lip reading can help with this, but it has its limits. So sometimes she can garble people’s words. Or miss them entirely. A GM may award a hero point when this becomes a…problem. Seen And Never Heard: Naomi cannot talk. Her larynx is ruined. Most people don’t know sign language, so she keeps a pen and pad on her person. Easy enough, right? Well…that requires the person she’s “speaking” with to look at her. Which may or may not always be possible in the middle of superheroics. Add to that, her pad and/or pen could be ruined by damage, and then what can she do? A GM may award a hero point when communications between her and anyone else become compromised in this manner. Bad Vibrations: Naomi’s powers run on vibratory energy, such as sound. Her body is constantly absorbing such energy from the environment. However, she has an upper limit to the amount she can absorb. Reaching it triggers a devastating Burst Area of vibratory energy (rank 12 at minimum, with any more left to GM’s discretion) to explode from her body, instantly and agonizingly depleting her reserves (making her Stunned from the pain). Therefore, from time to time she must release some lest this happen. Conversely, she can use up her reserves in combat (by repeatedly attacking with her array, flying for long periods, and/or taking lots of hits to her force field) rendering her attack array, flight, and force field useless until she absorbs enough energy to use them again. A GM may award a hero point for either of these situations occurring. No, I Don’t Know That Guy From That Show: Naomi is of Indian descent. Both parents were born and raised in India, and immigrated later. Americans have some…unfortunate misconceptions about the Indian people. And others can…mistake her ethnicity for another one, such as Arabic. That’s without getting into the fact that she does not, in fact, practice Hindism or Islam, the two dominant religions of India. She’s agnostic, thank you very much. No, her parents don’t approve. A GM may award a hero point for Waverider having to deal with the ignorant and/or prejudiced.

Catchphrase: [Scales set! Are you ready?] "Henshin!" [Time for justice!] Theme: Hell No! - Mel Senese Alternate Identity: Robin Lynne Langley (Secret) Birthplace: Emerald City Residence: Riverside, Freedom City Base of Operations: The Secret Headquarters, Riverside, Freedom City Occupation: Comic, Gaming & Hobby Store Owner, Adventurer Affiliations: None Family: Anna Maria Langley (mother), Lucas John Langley (father), Lucas John Langley Jr. (2 years older brother), Mark Milton Langley (20 years younger brother), Dottie Patricia Langley (paternal grandmother) DESCRIPTION Age: (DoB: 1997 [April 1st]) Gender: Female Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5'5'' Weight: 125 lbs. Eyes: Green Hair: Dark brown Robin is slender, her body honed by years of gymnastics. Her dark brown hair is, quite frankly, a mess that stands out in all directions. She has green eyes and wears glasses with red frames. She will usually dress casually, preferring t-shirts with prints or logos of cartoon characters, dragons and so on. Lately, she has taken to wearing jackets, pants and shoes over the undersuit for her armor. As Justice, Robin wears the ScaleDriver, a grey belt with a darker grey core, forming a sort of A shape with a triangle pointing down from the center of the A and reaching the same parts as the sides of the A in front of Justice. The center of the belt holders a red scale, slightly protruding from the rest of the belt. Activating the ScaleDriver causes the undersuit to appear, unfolding from the belt: A black suit with while soles, three white stripes on both sides of Robin's abdomen, a white line running from each shoulder and down her chest, and thinner white lines around her neck and the inside of her arms near the elbows. While the back of Robin's hands and her palms are covered, her fingers are left free. By scanning an ImagiCard on each of the weights on the scale and setting the weight, Robin can summon the Justice Armor X from Z-Space: Armored red boots with blue knees and shins, with thick white trim, blue armored shoulders and outer upper arms, with the lower arms beind completed covered, with additional white armor over the knuckles and the back of the hand. The center of Robin's chest, stretching from her shoulders and down to the ScaleDriver belt, is covered in red armor. The blue armor on the shoulders extends up in a collar around the side of her neck. She wars a red helmet that completely hides her features, with white guard in front of the mouth, white armor on the side of the hand and a white crest or crown with grey center at the front. Her eyes are hidden behind a black visor with blue trim. She wears a long white scarf around her neck. HISTORY Robin Lynne Langley has lived in Emerald City her entire life, always wondering why she lived in the one city that didn't seem to have any super heroes at all. Still, she loved heroes of all kinds, and if she couldn't find them by staring up at the sky, she would find them in comics and on the screen. When he older brother Lucas Jr. introduced her to the world of Japanese Tokusatsu, she was sold, even going as far as starting gymnastics due to her inspiration. Growing up, she kept her dream of really seeing heroes alive, Robin eventually decided that one day, she would be a hero. Eventually enrolling at Emerald City University, she sought out any class, course or knowledge that could help her in her goal, ending up with a rather varied curriculum, only broadening her knowledge of science in particular. She was only emboldened by the appearance of the Emerald Spider. Finally, using a combination of her own funds and components made available at the university, Robin created the first version of her Justice Driver and Justice Buster, setting out into Emerald City to become a hero. Since her debut, Robin has faced gangs of thieves, monsters, super natural threats and much more. She has been gifted her grandmother's amulet, that she once used as the super hero Miss Step, allowing her to access Z-Space, where she has established headquarters in an abandoned structure, though not going unnoticed by other inhabitants. She has worked through multiple iterations of her armor, finally settling on a modular design. Faced with the knowledge that MarsTech had stolen her designs to create the Ultio Suits and that Max Mars himself had discovered her identity, Robin put out the call to the heroes of Emerald City. Gathering together, the group has started to work against Max Mars and MarsTech, Justice has been thrust into a leadership role that she never expected to find herself in. Robin did not defeat the secret group by Max Mars and MarsTech. Despite her attempts, the whole thing fell apart, and she was eventually captured and disappeared from Emerald City. Six months later, Robin reappared in Freedom City, the owner of the new Riverside comic, gaming and hobby shop the Secret Headquarters. She seems to have forgotten that she was ever a super hero. Faced with villains rampaging through Riverside, Robin found the mysterious ScaleDriver hidden in a stockroom in the Secret Headquarters. Donning the belt, she became Justice for the first time once again. As Robin begins to rediscover herself, she will have to figure out just what happened to her, why it happened... and maybe why Max Mars and his Ultio Program has made their way to Freedom City. PERSONALITY & MOTIVATION Robin is a dreamer. Anything is possible if you have the will and make your own means. Intellectually gifted and curious, she will pursue anything that strikes her fancy. A great fan of super heroes, she has been disappointed at the lack of any prominent heroes in Emerald City, which is part of her reason for deciding to become a hero herself. The other part is her great love of Japanese Tokusatsu shows, which has inspired the technology she uses. She is idealistic, usually willing to give almost anyone the benefit of doubt, but can be surprisingly ruthless in combat. Since arriving in Freedom City, Robin seems to suffer from partial amnesia, having forgotten that she was ever a super hero. She is slowly rediscovering herself, leading to sudden shifts in personality: One moment, she might act as a rookie hero that has no idea what she's doing, before acting as a veteran hero the next. POWERS & TACTICS Robin will usually try and talk her opponent into surrendering at first. Otherwise, she will engage using her arsenal and any other gadgets she has managed to bring along. She will usually switch rapidly between weapons, using whatever the situation calls for, while creating portals to Z-Space to exchange other bits and pieces of her armor while in action. Robin posses no innate powers. All her abilities come from gymnastic skills or technology she created herself. While she had studied magic under Salvo, she has found herself utterly unable to actually use magic herself, instead relying on merging technology and magic as what she has dubbed WonderTech. After several different battle suit iterations and design philosophies, including her prototype suit and using a number of different armors for different situations, Robin's newest armor channels powers directly from Z-Space. As with previous versions, the undersuit unfolds from Robin's belt, dubbed the ScaleDriver, while other armor pieces are summoned from Z-Space and attaches directly to Robin. Robin's grandmother's amulet powers the ScaleDriver and allows Robin to access Z-Space and teleport short distances in real space, while also giving her access to her storage. She uses a number of different gadgets she has created or cobbles together on the fly as needed. The Justice Armor X enhances Robin's physical capabilities and assists her in combat, including a built-in A.I. that assists in combat. Robin can switch between different weapons and armor by scanning magically programmed NFC cards that she has dubbed HeroCards to the two scales on her belt, with each HeroCard being able to activate either the Alpha or Beta slot. By manipulating the weights on the scale, she can increase or decrease her armor, allowing her to switch between three modes: Balance: a balanced mode, Lightweight: Quick, but with little armor and Heavyweight: Slow, but heavily armored. Robin commonly uses the following HeroCards to set her armor's Alpha Slot, giving her access to different attacks: Lady Liberty: Melee focused, with enhanced strikes. Justice: Gives Robin access to the Justice Kick, damaging everything in her path. Patriot: Gives Robin access to the Patriot Blaster, a weapon with variable magical attacks. Emerald Spider: Gives Robin access to Quantum Webbing, used to entangle her targets. Captain Thunder: Gives Robin access the stunning Thunder Strike. and the following HeroCards to set her armor's Beta Slot, giving her different defensive and utility abilities: Centurion: Enhanced strength and environmental defenses. Synapse: Psionic efenses and mental senses. Raven: Stealth focused abilities. Freedom Eagle: Flight and gives Robin access to the Eagle Blaster, which she can use to channel any of her attacks at a range, making some of her attacks instant hits. Velocity: Increased speed. While these are the HeroCards commonly used by Robin, she has access to others through stunts. Furthermore, Robin can access the more powerful World's Finest Mode armor by using the Centurion HeroCard in the Alpha slot and the Raven HeroCard in the Beta slot at the same time. COMPLICATIONS Fangirl: Robin is a big fan of super heroes. Even as experienced as she has become, meeting a famous hero can give her pause, or at worst go into complete fangirl mode. The GM can award Justice a Hero Point if fangirling over another hero causes her to skip a turn or otherwise become distracted. Friend In Need: If given a situation where she can stop a villain or save someone, Robin will always try to save another person first, even if it might not be the smartest action. The GM can award Justice a Hero Point if a situation arises where she has to choose between saving someone or defeating a villain, and Justice's choice to save someone lets the villain get away or get an advantage over her. HeroCards: Robin uses special cards with NFC reader and magic code to activate her different weapons and abilities. While she can quickly use different cards, situations can arise where change weapons just isn't feasible, such as being in a situation where she can't use her arms or being caught in an intense fight. The GM can award Justice a Hero Point if they decide that the situation makes it difficult or outright impossible for Justice to activate a new HeroCard, which in turn means that Justice can't change the active powers in her ScaleDriver Alpha Slot and ScaleDriver Beta Slot arrays. Mars Attacks: While Justice has become an enemy of the entire Chamber of Emerald City, she has, in particular, become one of Max Mars' targets. While he has kept her around for now, he is not above sending enemies to mess with her just because he can. Ultio Suit Users tend to attack Justice on sight, for instance. The GM can award Justice a Hero Point by, at any point, deciding to involve Max Mars' machinations in the plot, such as sending a group of Ultio Suit Users to make life difficult for Justice and her allies. Motor Mouth: Robin likes to talk. A lot. She can just keep going if she wants to, and doesn't always know when to not explain something. The GM can award Justice a Hero Point if her constant talking causes issues, such as making a social situation worse or getting her in trouble by overxplaining thing. No Secret Identity: Somehow, Robin was lucky enough that only Max Mars learned her secret identity back in Emerald City. Her debut in Freedom City was much too public for that, and her identity is now out in the open. On the other hand, she does usually wear an armor while working as a hero, so she won't be as easy to recognize as someone running around without a mask. The GM can award Justice a Hero Point if her lack of secret identity causes issues, such as people recognizing her. Power Up Let Down: Justice's World's Finest Mode. armor, accessed through the Morph power Centurion/Raven: World's Finest requires large amounts of power to run. The GM can effectively veto any use of the World's Finest Mode Armor if they don't want Justice to use it in a thread. Invoking this complication does not award Justice a Hero Point, but allows the GM an excuse to keep Justice from increasing in PL during a thread.

  6. GM You don't know the time. You don't remember the date. You don't know where you are. You feel cold. Your eyes open, and you find yourself in a bed that you know is not your own. You appear to be in a hospital, with an IV drip connected from the back of the wrist on your left arm to a clear back that hangs by the side of the bed. You're sure that you're not dreaming. You are alone. The room is small, quadratic. Your bed is squashed up against the corner so you can see the door over the foot of the bed. The walls are light, grey. Monotone. Boring. The door is a slightly darker grey, barely standing out, if not for the handle and a small window that lets you see another door outside your room. There is a window on the wall opposite of your bed, with bars over it. It is closed. A single chair stands next to the bed. It seems to be made of a shiny metal. Aluminium, maybe. You don't remember how you got here. Were you in an accident? Did something happen? And realization slowly begins to set in. You are alone. And you are not dreaming.
  7. GM 3PM, August 28th, 2020 Silberman's Northwest, Emerald City Silberman's Northwest was a nice place, even if it was very different from the original Silberman's back in Freedom City. Gretchen McDaniels, otherwise known as the Shrike, was, of course, retired. She had left Freedom for Emerald to get out of the hero life, but some times, you just couldn't. She had met Robin Lynne Langley on a few occasions. She had become a regular at Silberman's Northwest, and about a year before, she and Gretchen had shared an adventure into a magic book that was some knock off of the Wizard of Oz. They had managed to escape, and they had kicked ass and taken names, but even as they learned each others secret identities, Robin had respected Gretchen's choice to not be a hero anymore. Of course, things were different now, and Emerald needed all the heroes they could get...
  8. GM 11:30 PM February 12th, 2021 Jadetown, Emerald City The Night of the Chinese New Year Celebrations It was an evening of celebration in the streets of Jadetown, and on this evening, even the Takazumi-gumi seemed to be at ease, content to simply celebrate. It was the year of the metal ox. Some saw that as a sign, the year that the Steel Shogun would rise even further. Others simply enjoyed the festivities. Anyone and everyone in the city were welcome, at least for now. Perhaps the party, a smell of the supernatural at play, or something else entirely, would bring heroes to this night. While a parade made their way through the streets, a group of Takazumi-gumi that were defintely not in a party mood, led by a young man, led a young woman through the streets of the city...

  10. The Undercity, Emerald City, Washington Sunday, May 17, 2020 07:38:21PM @Kaede Kimura The Red Summer's resident magic specialist smokes a cigarette as he watches Mixnus and Nixnus lug the bars of gold from the deck of the PT boat down to its cabin. Blonde, sporting an obnoxious Hawaiian shirt, and eyes half-hidden by the rim of his glasses and the darkness there is no mistaking the naked greed and slightly slack-jawed awe as he intently follows the gargoyle twins carry their newly gained wealth. It had been nearly half an hour of continuous back and forth trips from the gargoyles, and only a small pile of gold bars lies in neat stacks on the sewer floor, when Alaynah goes up to you. She smacks her pack of cigarettes and offers one up to you. "Gotta tell you, should have asked for more." She chuckles slightly then shakes her head, obviously in a good mood. "Tell me, you can create all this wealth so why're you here chasing after a murderer knee-high in sewer water?" *** A few more minutes pass before Zach, holding a hand-held radio, waves at Alaynah. "Boss, the package's coming." Alaynah nods at the comment and turns to you, her one good eye hard, all business now. "We'll keep this simple. We all get on my ship and when we're in the middle of the river, nowhere for him to run to, and then you take him and leave. Then me and my crew gets out of dodge, never to show our faces in this city again." She motions for the gargoyles to finish their work with a "Hurry up." "Oh, and I almost forgot," she turns back to you. She raises two fingers. "There's another one coming with Advay, some P.I. in-the-know and packing magic. Goes by the name of Christopher Daye of Blackstaff Investigations. He's yours to handle and, uh, your pet if it comes to that." *** @Spacefurry At long last your trip is nearing an end. You can see the metaphorical and literal light at the end of the tunnel as you guide Advay down the sewers, the professor's boxes of personal belongings and research bobbing up and down as they trail the both of you in the air. "I-is that it?" Advay asks as your flashlight gleams against a PT boat's hull. "I must say, I can't wait to finally sleep somewhere that isn't a cramped, dusty cave always with one eye open. It takes a lot out of a person, you know." Your flashlight quickly beams over the whole of the PT boat and its light is joined by several other flashlights from the crew of the boat. A dark-haired woman with an eyepatch, who looks to be the leader, walks forward to meet you. A bespectacled man in an obnoxious Hawaiian shirt watches from the deck, smoking a cigarette. Then two gargoyles emerge from the boat's cabin, matching and glowing runes on their foreheads. They move to a a couple of gold bricks lying on the sewer floor and haul it back into the PT cabin. Lastly, a woman in armor atop a clockwork pony made of bronze and brass. "Cristopher Dayes?" The woman with the eyepatch greets you with a smile and an offered cigarette. "Advay Upal? Welcome to The Red Summer . We're your ticket out of here." She gestures at her PT Boat. "None of us want to be inside a sewer for longer than we have to. So get on board."

  12. GM Tea Time, Around 4PM, May 15th, 2020 All Across Emerald City Hello, hello, all my new friends! I am the White Rabbit. The man on the screen looked smart, in his long tailed jacket. The jacket was black, with a red and white pattern on the lapel, with the red on each side looking suspiciously like half of a heart. He wore an off-white vest under it, with a white dress shirt and a neatly tied dark red tie. On his head, a black bowler hat, with a pair of white rabbit ears under it, pointing down. His hair was short and blonde, but he sported some impressive sideburns. The man looked so happy, a wide smile on his lips, as he looked down at a golden pocket watch in his hand. To most, he probably looked like a slightly deranged kids' show host. Some saw him on their television, where he had suddenly appeared. Some heard him on the radio. For others still, his image had suddenly appeared on the screen of their smart phones. Anything connected to the public air waves, he was there. Oh my, would you look at the time? It is tea time! The very best time of the day! And oh, what a party we will have! So come, my friends! Come, and let us have tea! Join us, my friends and I, and come for tea! We even have cake! He threw his head back, laughing quickly at himself, before turning back to the screen. My old friends are out there already, y'know. Go and find them, they will tell you what to do. They'll show you how to really get the party started! Now, hurry up! After all, you're late, you're late, for a very important date. All across Emerald City, the effect was instant: Anarchy. As they were drawn into the White Rabbit's power, the citizens of Emerald City took to the streets. Even to those that escaped the madness of the mind, the city seemed to take on a brand new life. Everything was changing, twisting and turning. A cartoony world of wonder, with giant flowers, playing cards and more, spreading all across Emerald. It was almost enough to make one go mad. A fairy tale wonderland, spreading out across the city streets, as the White Rabbit's new friends began to spread into shops, stores, homes, banks, government offices and more. A group of heroes were among the unaffected. Whether by chance or design, they had escaped the White Rabbit's friendship. It wouldn't take long for them to notice that the greatest concentration of White Rabbit's friends seemed to be centered near the Yellow Brick Row shopping district...
  13. OOC for this. @EternalPhoenix @Dr Archeville @Growth Spurt @Tiffany Korta Your opening post could describe how you avoided being affected by the initial outburst of friendship from the White Rabbit. You might not have heard him, you might have passed a Will save, you might have broken free of his control, I'm good with most choices. The effect from radios, tvs and phones are based on audio. Can't hear it, can't be affected by it. Doesn't mean you'll be immune if you go up against White Rabbit in person, though! You'll find some way of discovering the large concentration of affected people near Yellow Brick Row, and then we'll go from there. You might spot the others there, or you might not. Up to you.
  14. GM Outside a barn in Island View, Emerald City 9PM, May 8th 2020 Charles Charlemagne was not exactly a well known name around Emerald City magic community, but yet, Blackstaff had heard about him. A man that seemed to care for magical creatures, even if his own magic power seemed non-existant, Charlemagne lived in an always moving mansion. Its door would appear on the side of random buildings around the city. If he wanted to be found, he would be. If not? You should count on your luck. Blackstaff had found a note on the desk at his office. An invitation, to the Charlemagne Mansion, and a location. An offer for a job. By now, Blackstaff had found his way to the side of a barn in Island View. I held a simple wooden door, yet one that was entirely out of place in this location. And he was not alone. Oz had received word that Charles Charlemagne wanted to see him. Last time they had met, he had aided Charlemagne in stopping would-be monster poaches. It seemed that Charlemagne had been suitably impressed to reach out to him again.

  16. GM 3PM, August 25th, 2020 University Hill, Emerald City Naomi might not have expected that Elliot would ever take her up on the offer to talk or help with the issues at his school, but months after their meeting, she had received a simple text message: Things are getting worse at the school. I need your help. Meet me at the Starbucks to the South of the University Hill Campus. The Starbucks was busy. People talking all around. A lot of people that Naomi recognized from the university, some that she shared classes with, others that she had only see. It wasn't completely crowded, but there was enough people around that it would be difficult for anyone to cause a scene of any kind without being noticed. She would soon see Elliot, sitting by himself by a table, fending off a guy that asked if he could sit.
  17. Bastion Beetle Power Level: 12 (Built as PL10) (180/180PP) Unspent Power Points: 0 Trade-Offs: -4 Attack / +4 Damage, -4 Defense / +4 Toughness In Brief: A mysterious beetle creature found wandering in the woodlands outside of the emerald cities proper Catchphrase: Bzzzzzzt *Click click* Theme: Durability - Tribes of Neurot Alternate Identity: None Birthplace: Emerald City Residence: Emerald City Woodlands Base of Operations: Emerald City Occupation: Mysterious Beetle friend Affiliations: Emerald City Family: Description: Age: 3 Months Apparent Age: Adult Gender: None Ethnicity: Genetically Engineered Life form (Insectus Invictus Rex) Height: 10ft Weight: 1600 lbs Eyes: Green Hair: N/A Standing at a solid 10ft tall and built to battle and endure, Bastion beetle appears like a chimeric cross of several different species of insects such as a thick opalescent black carapace and the horn formation of an atlas beetle with the fore-horn of a Japanese rhinoceros beetle and the powerful pincers of a Giant Stag Beetle with the thick Elytron of an ironclad beetle and the Powerful wings of a Hercules beetle beneath them. Layered over a stocky humanoid form with thick fiberous muscle tissue at the joints to allow greater flexibility. History: There have been recent reports of seeing a towering humanoid figure clad in black armour and bearing all manner of jagged natural weapons wandering around in the woods outside of emerald city, many are passing it off as a particularly clumsy member of the cryptid clans those in the know with the cryptid clans know that it is not counted among their numbers, Personality & Motivation: Being relatively new to the world Bastion beetle is relatively curious about his surroundings, though he is not particularly aggressive he enjoys his solitude and maintains a small territorial area within the woods, opting to stridulate menacingly at those whom trespass from outside their view if possible particularly having a problem with creatures of comparative size to himself, he leaves smaller mammals, avians and his insectoid kin to their business. Powers & Tactics: If forced into conflict he will opt to hold his ground and attempt to wrestle his foes into submission as his instincts dictate, blessed with the greatest strengths of some of the worlds most remarkable insects as well as an enhanced capacity of intellectual deduction and reasoning he is surprisingly capable of complex tactical decisions and actions Power Descriptions: all of Bastion beetle's powers are based upon the various physiological traits of the beetles he was engineered from, the amazingly tough carapace of the ironclad beetle, the great strength of the taurus beetle and so forth, only his enhanced capacity for intelligent thought stands out. Complications: Bug out: Despite his enhanced intelligence and formidable superhuman physiology bastion beetle is still very much a instinctual creature and as such is prone to knee jerk reactions such as violently attacking or fleeing from percived threats that may not actually pose danger to him. Posing up a storm: Still unused to the verbal communications used by most humanoid lifeforms bastion is far more likely to communicate through body language, namely in the form of assuming somewhat exaggerated poses to communicate thoughts and feelings about a situation, this can be both humorous and threatening to people unfamiliar with him and his odd behavior as well as making it considerably harder for him to lie about things to those who are familiar with the behaviours of insects. Ugly bug brawl: Due to his monstrous appearance bastion has found that he causes great distress in some humans to the point that they actually attack him (with an Aerosol of ineffectual concentration named "raid") This has created an association of being attacked when someone comments on his appearance and can lead to him becoming deeply distressed and extremely jumpy in these situations due to the numerous failed attempts on his life resulting from it.

  18. GM Jadetown, Emerald City April 12th, 2020 1:00 PM If anyone in Jadetown celebrated Easter, those plans had long since been abandoned. A gang of young man had roamed the streets for weeks now. They caused trouble, assaulted and robbed the citizens, and every attempt to get the police to intervene had met in failure. Clearly, someone was protecting the gang. Most of the citizens of Jadetown had accepted the trouble and the almost daily attacks, but one, a young man named Gai, had not. He had run for the streets, and somehow, he had gotten the attention of two heroes: Venomax and Visionary. He had begged each for help, to come and stop the gang, to do what the police would not. Maybe they had listened, maybe they hadn't. Time would tell. Now, the gang was roaring through the streets once more. Twelve ultra modern, high powered bikes tearing through the streets, the riders shouting as they knocked down anyone or anything in their way.

  20. GM Emerald City Saturday, May 16, 2020 10:54:2APM "How are you liking Emerald City, Miss Adrianna?" Vicente Cruz sat beside your dining table, a folder full of official papers laid unopened on your table. You had heard a knock on the door and when you opened it, he had introduced himself and his partner, Daria Bell, as officials from the government agency handling your refugee status. He had flashed his badge and asked that you let him inside. "We heard about the commotion you caused a few days ago. Nothing too serious? Everything turn out alright?" Daria piped up from behind Vicente. She began to count with her fingers. "No one hospitalized? No charges for assault or disturbing the peace or--" Vicente, his eyebrows twitching in what you assume to be irritation, motions for her to stop. "That's enough, Daria." Then he returns his gaze to you. "But why we are here is somewhat because of that... incident, Miss Adrianna." From out of the folder he draws a document and slides it towards you, a primer of Emerald City University's Cryptozoology program. It boasts its curriculum and faculty, including among them some of the country's leading Sasquatch experts. "As you might know," Vicente continues after you finish reading. "Emerald City has a bit of a reputation for, how would you say it, weirdness? There's an undercurrent of the hidden and the odd in the city and its surroundings, even if most people could go about their lives not really seeing anything explicit to validate their beliefs." He gestures, palm up, at you. "You yourself is a prime example. A refugee from a world where dreams are made real, and who can dream up monsters and creatures from nightmares and fairy tales." "Oh, don't string her along, Vicente. Just say what you need to say to the poor girl." Vicente, for his part, ignores his partner's comments and continues as if she had said nothing. "So perhaps you would like to be part of a community made of beings like yourself? The flotsam of space or other dimensions. Humanity can never really understand us. They see us as a phenomenon to study, or bedtime stories to frighten. Sometimes, they hunt us, believing us a threat even when we have called this Emerald City home longer than any of them. Longer than this country even." Over his shoulder, Daria is beaming at you. "We're extending you an invitation. What do you say?" Daria says and this time Vicente is nodding thoughtfully. Then visibly his features begin to change, melting back into flesh that slowly turns a bright orange. Soon, his face is blank save for solid white eyes and a mouth, which opens as he speaks. "Don't be alarmed, Miss Adrianna. I just wanted to show you who I really am." He slides his hand, orange like his face, forward as if to reassure you. "Like you, this isn't the dimension where I was born. And even then I was from another planet in the galaxy, not that Earth."

  22. Justice 8PM, March 19th, 2020 University Hill, Emerald City It was late, sure, but could have been later. At least Robin could come and go, it wasn't like students didn't keep odd hours, right? Nobody would mind if she showed up in the middle of the night, and it was only evening, so, it wasn't a big issue. Not that she had been hanging around as much as usual lately, not since figuring out how to get to the AnneX, at least... So, Salvo wanted to check the place where she used to work on her stuff. Figure out how Mars had managed to grab hold of Robin's tech. It made sense, and two pairs of eyes were better than one, anyway. So, after setting things up, Robin was now standing outside the entrance to the building on the campus that held the workshop, 3D printers and whatever else that she had used to use. Compared to her fully costumed look, she had dressed down considerably. A pair of jeans, a blue and white t-shirt with the Captain Thunder logo, an open dark red jacket, and, of course, her mask. She didn't know Salvo that well yet, after all... and who knew who else was gonna show up? Robin stood a bit to the side, away from the entrance to the building, at the spot they had agreed to meet around 8. She fought the urge to look at her watch. Not that Salvo was late, but Robin really wanted to get this over with.
  23. GM 3PM, March 4th, 2020 The Riverfront District It was perhaps appropriate that Sunburn, Dinostroyer and Metamind had been brought back to the Riverfront district that they had attacked. Their trial had, despite the overwhelming evidence, lasted a few weeks now. It was not much of an argument of guilt, it was more a question of how bad, and how to punish someone that didn't seem to exist. As it turned out, it seemed that Sunburn's claim that that the trio was from another world had been true. Or, at the very least, they had been good at hiding any trace of themselves. Now, a verdict had been reached. Property damage, mind control, but thankfully, no fatalities, and mostly minor injuries. The Upstarts were to be sent to an A.E.G.I.S. holding facility closer to Freedom City, far from Emerald City. Super villains were not something that happened in Emerald City, after all, so they had no way of keeping them. As the group was loaded into individual trucks, they were still wearing the power dampening equipment created by MarsTech. Dinostroyer wore heavy chains, Metamind had been outfitted with a helmet and Sunburn was inside a large tank filled with a strange fluid, with a breathing apparatus around her mouth and nose. She looked even more pissed off than the rest. The trucks didn't far before they simply stopped. The drivers got out, any guards simply left... and then the first shots were fired towards the prison transports. Emerald City was not a city of villains, and it seemed that being a villain here came with its own consequences.
