  1. 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.
  2. ooc for this. @Tiffany Korta, @angrydurf, follow up to EC Showdown, as promised. Once you've made your entrance, give me an Initiative
  3. GM January 25th, Saturday, 2020, 11.55PM Outside Emerald Tower, downtown Emerald City, OR The last lingering, heartrending notes pierced the chill night air, and UK's violin went silent. For a moment, all around Robin was an almost sacred hush as the renowned string virtuoso stood to take a bow. In the glare of red lamps that had filled the night sky, held in place by repulsor bands that turned clouds of countless paper shells into magnetically-unified pieces of airborne art, Robin saw K looking almost uneasy at the awestruck hush. Above and about flitted the newsdrones, covering the MarsTech New Years bash while other electric eyes took in events unfolding across the Emeralds. Of all the crowds, though, this was going to be the biggest. There were familiar faces in the crowd, not like looming Chung was ever going to miss a chance to carry his "THE END IS NOW" signs where a camera was going to be, but on nights like this the comforting seas of familiarity was upset with crosswinds of newcomers, people who'd look at you funny and hurry on if you asked them how they werre doing. In that moment, though, all were united, Munchkin and outsider alike, by that same thrill through every heart. To make a sound would have been blasphemous. Max Mars broke the spell, jumping out of the audience and onto the stage beside K with a single bound, applauding furiously with giant grin on his face. "Yue Kei, everybody! All you shapes and flavours out there, give her a big 'welcome home' hand!" With admirable obedience the Emerald citizens cheered, the cold winter air blasted with steam from thousands of throats. In the heated shelter UK started, laughed despite herself, and bowed in rapid succession to different areas of the crowd. Max grinned like an indulgent father. Switching off his mic, he and UK exchanged a word, the young woman nodding and beginning to clear up her music and put back her instruments. As she did so, Mars went on blithely. "Nicely done! now, Kei has to leave us for the night, but stick around! Because on the stroke of midnight, as we enter a new year, I've got a little surprise for you...well, two surprises, but you'll see! Now, may I have a volunteer from the audience?" His brilliant green eyes scanning the crowd suddenly locked on Robin's. "Well hey-hey, Rob! Glad to see you could make it to another of my little shindigs! Like to come up?" he looked deeply chagrined as he added "I promise, no giant robots this time!"
  4. Ultio Suit User NOTE: Ultio Suit Users can posses a multitude of different powers, skills and feats aside from the ones listed here, depending on what upgrades they have purchased. The ones listed here represent a basic user with no upgrades, and no special skills on their own. Individual Ultio Suit Users can posses vastly different powers and can be at higher power levels than what is listed here. Power Level: 6 (77/77PP) Unspent Power Points: 0 Trade-Offs: None In Brief: Wannabe super heroes all hooked up with the latest MarsTech Ultio Suit. Alternate Identity: Varies Birthplace: Varies Residence: Emerald City Occupation: Varies Affiliations: MarsTech Family: Varies Description: The basic Ultio Suit is a simple full body costume in a light grey color, with a thick dark grey stripe running down the chest to the belt. The dark grey stripe is flanked by thin white stripes on each sides, separating it from the light grey of the costume. The belt is white, with a round, dark grey belt buckle, two pieces that connect to form the circle. The suit has dark grey boots with white soles and trim, with a square shape on the outside of the leg, a bit higher than the rest of the boot. The costume has a similar design on the dark grey right arm, though the square is on the inside of the arm, just under the arm pit. This darker grey sleeve has white trim separating it from the lighter grey of the main costume, like the boots and central stripe. The costume is completed with a light grey helmet, which leaves the user's face exposed. A black pair of goggles protects the user's eyes and can act as correctional lenses, as well as an advanced heads up display, perfect for interacting with various offers from MarsTech and feed the wearer a steady stream of information from the MarsTech TroubAlert. Users that perform heroic deeds and score Hero Points can use said Hero Points for both power enhancements and cosmetics, including different colors, alternate designs, capes and more. History: First revealed in late January 2020, the MarsTech Ultio Suits are Maximillian Mars' attempt to create an entirely new business model that he has dubbed SaaS: Superheroes as a Service. Using technology created by Max Mars himself and MarsTech employees, the Ultio Suits lets anyone become an instant super hero! Coupled with the MarsTech TroubAlert, Ultio Suit Users will be alerted of many situations that might require their attention, making Emerald City safer than ever before! Now, would-be heroes and celebrities all across Emerald City can respond to the call of heroism! When the MarsTech TroubAlert alerts the Ultio Suit Users of trouble, they can immediatelly suit up and rush off to save the day, all courtesy of the power granted to them by Max Mars and MarsTech! Of course, there's some so-called heroes that might try and interfere with the TroubAlert ratings, taking valuable Hero Points from the heroes in the Ultio Suits, but they will just have to learn to take a step back, and let the future of super heroes take the spotlight! Personality & Motivation: Varies, depending on the individual. In general, Ultio Suit Users tend to be well meaning, but inexperienced. They will prioritize their actions based on the MarsTech TroubAlert, often focusing on capturing or otherwise stopping a villain above rescuing civillians or preventing collateral damage. Due to the competitive nature of the Ultio System, Ultio Suit Users will rarely support each other, and might actually hinder each other to be the one to score most points. A great number of Ultio Suit Users are would-be celebrities, prioritizing getting famous over being heroes. Of course, as anyone can wear an Ultio Suit, the given personality traits might or might not appear in any given Ultio Suit User. Powers & Tactics: The power of all Ultio Suit Users come directly from their armor, which is stored in their Ultio Belt when not active. The armor offers enhanced strength, durability, speed and reflexes, as well as enhanced vision through a built in H.U.D., which also offers a direct connection to the MarsTech TroubAlert. Additionally, each user picks a starter pack upon purchase, which offers their own specialized powers. Their choices are: Aqua Pack: Increased swimming speed, resistance to pressure and cold, oxygen tank that prevents drowning. Blaster Pack: Low power, but accurate, laser blasts. Flight Pack: A jetpack and enhanced super-strength, including the ability to create shockwaves. Stealth Pack: Built in stealth field, which offers visual and auditory blocking for the user. Grip claws that allow wall-crawling, and an assortment of smoke bombs. Tank Pack: Increased armor and defences, strong enough to completely block most assault rifles. In general, the tactics of the Ultio Suit Users is based on the scores offered through the MarsTech TroubAlert. If defeating an enemy nets a higher score, then the users will attack that enemy, using whatever abilities they have. Most users tend to favor brute force over strategy, though that might differ depending on what powers they posses. The Ultio Suit Users will rarely cooperate with either each other or other heroes, over fear of losing out on Hero Points. Power Descriptions: All of the Ultio Suit's powers are technological in nature, using various equipment created either by Max Mars directly, or by any number of employees at MarsTech. When note in use, the Ultio Suit is stored in the Ultio Belt. With the press of a single button, the suit unfolds, rapidly building up to cover the user's body. Some users tend to strike various poses while this happen. The basic nature of the suit is a general strength, durability, speed and reflex enhancement, empowering the user to super human levels, all afforded through various motors, computer power and targeting systems. The suit connects directly to the MarsTech TroubAlert system, which guides the user to trouble spots, ranks their heroics and otherwise functions as a store front to purchase enhancements. While the Ultio Suits come with a standard powerset and a choice of 5 different starter packs, the user can enhance and expand their power suite by spending money or Hero Points, earned by performing heroics and other activites as rated by the MarsTech TroubAlert. When a user purchase an enhancement or new power, the suit's new ability is unlocked instantly.

  5. May 27, 2019, 12.47PM, a lovely warm late spring day Emerald City, Oregon, waterfront, annual MarsTech Science Fair "Wow, Meridian! Amazing! If you hadn't stopped those robot ninjas, my MarsTech Olympus-class air-scrubber would be in the hands of evil! Our ozone and oxygen are safe yet again!" Max Mars, standing beaming like a happy child while surrounded by smashed bits of cyclopic glossy-black robots dressed like ancient stage hands, seemed for once even smaller than his five feet next to the towering heroine. His curly red hair, peppered with grey, had caught plenty of the debris from the magnificently-staged mock-combat, and his lovely deep-blue suit and bearded face had caught a full blast of smoke from an all-too real electrical fire, but the grin on his face wasn't damaged or dimmed in the least. The West Coast's favorite source of super-science had been urging for something like this ever since meeting Sophie Powers, and evidently it had lived up to all his dreams at once. The rest of the dock had been cleared and meticulously calculated to allow for the fight to happen without causing any real harm, while the stands stood close enough to the action to let the Emerald City munchkins feel the vicarious thrills. The platform Max and Meridian stood on was two-level, letting the real point of the show make an imposing backdrop-a monolithic black wall marked out with the red planet logo of MarsTech-keep up a presence. The Olympus was some kind of greenhouse gas-condenser, and had been busily proving its worth since its unveiling. By processes Max had been very happy to explain, but which relatively few people understood, it had been drawing carbon and other heat-trapping airborne substances from the air and converting them into other, less harmful solid forms. To hear Max talk, one could be forgiven for thinking the entire ecological crisis was solved for all time. Emerald's favorite son swept a hand to the crowd "A big hand, everybody, for Meridian, today's greatest hero!" The request wasn't necessary, since Emerald citizens weren't yet jaded enough to not be amazed by the sight of people punching robots in front of them, but it did get a standing ovation going! The only less-than-enthralled response was from the Emerald City South Girl Scouts box, in which several hundred uniformed girls busily scribbled notes onto tablets or inspected fragments of metal that blown their way, the wall of uniformed older women around them clapping politely but with veryobvious skepticism. By tradition, the Emerald City North Girl Scouts box was as far from the South's as reasonably possible, and was resolutely and coolly silent. The flying news-drones swept closer, circling to capture the moment, their human counterparts chatting with the MarsTech company reps and snapping photos. Except for the skinny, greasy woman in the grey 50's suit and 'PRESS'-carded trilby who'd been politely put behind the security line after trying to reach the stage and ask questions. She just scribbled and glared from time to time.
  6. OOC thread for this, featuring @NineOfSpades's Meridian and @RocketLord's Justice! Time to fight a robot!

What: First-response and life-saving in the aftermath of a container ship's nagivation equipment malfunctioning, sending the several-hundred thousand tonnes of ship and cargo into the half-built MarsTech wave-power generator just off the coast. Hundreds of people need rescue, both in the ship and around the power generator. Who: Anyone, really. Max of four people, Maximum PL of 12. Where: Emerald City, Oregon coastline. When: August 2nd, Late night. @Jander-Prime Here you go, Jander. How's this?
  8. OOC thread for this thread. Citizen takes a STAND. On the ISSUES. @Avenger Assembled You don't need to roll for this opening part. It's basically just a cold open and splash title page.
  9. GM April 1st, 2018, 1.23AM Emerald City, Oregon, USA, Earth-Prime The meteorite had snuck past every layer of warning the Earth had to offer, a flaming rock that by rights should have been seen coming a light-year away by the Lighthouse. It careened through the sky, directly for the peaceful, foggy Columbia River mouth and the two tiny cities crouched on the shores of the great gray sea. One of the Archetech staff had stepped outside for a smoke break, and a passing homeless man had pointed out the "new star" to him. Three minutes later and there Citizen was, high up in the sky with a giant ball of iron and alien metals racing for his head. It was around 150 meters across its smooth body, if it hit the cities at the speed it was going there wouldn't be any survivors for miles around. The voice of Archetech West's ground crew hummed into his receptors. "We're ready when you are, Sharl! Say the word and we'll fire up the conduits for that power boost! Hit that thing with everything we got!" "Just make sure to burn some of it off before you come back," another voice quickly added "just to be safe."
  10. GM July 5th, Tuesday, 3.45PM, 2016 4027 Tower St., Emerald City, WA, USA Downtown on the Emerald City riverfront was like being in another world. Voices and faces from dozens of other countries filled the streets, the sharp sea breeze lent a salty tang to the smells of streetside vendors selling the cuisine from dozens more and the sleek, pristine skyscrapers rearing above bore the richest names on Earth in at least ten languages. In particular was the soaring crystal-green Emerald Tower, the corporate center of world-famous MarsTech, one of the several new corporations in the super-technology industry and already a household name. The Tower was the hub for its own micro-universe, the eye of a financial, legal and technological hurricane, a block in each cardinal direction devoted to its needs and those of its sky-dwelling inhabitants. Public involvement with superhumans was considered passé, a kind of cheating, so there was little surprise when Prof. Erasmus Bolt was contacted about one of his newest inventions and invited to a meeting with the head of MarsTech, the flamboyant and vibrant plutocract Maximilian Mars. Although he has made a name for himself as someone with the city's best interests at heart, nobody doubts that Mars is chiefly concerned with Number One. For whatever reason, Erasmus had not yet entered the Tower. "Bolt!" A harsh, cold voice hissed from behind him, which turned out to hail from a very dour-looking man cloistered in a pitch-black limosuine, a rarity in downtown Emerald which prides itself on its mass-transit system. The man glared out at Bolt, then up at the Emerald Tower "Come to see Mars, hn? When you're done, come see me. I'm Kessler, Arwin Kessler, KessKorp. Unlike Mars, I won't lie to you. My card." Thrusting his lean hand out with a well-produced rectangle of laminated plastic pinched between thumb and forefinger, Kessler waited with an air of impatience for Bolt to take it.
