And Countless Screaming Argonauts [OOC]

Recommended Posts

Given his Gadgets, Midnight should be able to patch into the video cameras pretty easily (modeled with ESP, probably), but are there any skill checks you'd like him to make?

No, I'll give it to you. He can see three of the intruders are working quickly in the Allies of Freedom wing. Two of them don't really stand out, due to the black-and-white camera and the shadows, but he's pretty sure the third has a jester's cap on. The fourth? Well, he's not showing up...

I'll say that yes, it's a Jimmy Lucas case, perhaps a souvenir from the time he drove Nacht-Krieger out of Calais. As for our mysterious fourth, well... he goes on 24 as well,, but I'll say he goes after Wander.

Wander is going to target Orion and attempt to give him a solid whack with her bat.

Start with a Fast Acrobatic Bluff on the move action, skill-mastered and inspired for a DC 32 to avoid flat-footedness.

Follow that up with a Charging Inspired full Power Attack, which will result in a net +2 to attack, -2 to defense, and +5 to damage. With a crappy crap roll of 17, the only way that could hit is if he's really flat-footed when he's flat-footed.

That misses, so going to spend an HP to reroll. That's a 29. Toughness DC is 30 if she hits.

That hits, and Orion barely stays on his feet.

Now for our fourth man! Vanguard will be played by my Immortal Soldier build at about PL11. Meaning ATT +16, DMG +6, DEF +12 (+4 Flat-Footed), TOU +10, FORT +8, REF +10, WILL +8. He bursts out of the darkness and shoots at Devil Ray with a Blaster (assume same stats as Assault Rifle). He hits, but not enough to trigger Autofire. Devil Ray must make a DC21 Toughness save. And takes a Bruise.

Devil Ray: 15, Bruised x1, 0 HP

Cannonade is all "what," but decides not to question the guy attacking the Crime League. He goes after the Dazed Orion and tries to take him out before he regains his faculties, using a -2/+2 Power Attack. He hits, necessitating a DC28 Toughness save. And Orion goes down. Except for the bit where Wildcard spends an HP to reroll for him. He's Staggered, and his Daze refreshes, but he's not out.

Wildcard decides to play 52 Pickup with Cannonade's face, unleashing a tide of honed playing cards and Power Attacking for -4/+4. It ends up just hitting Cannonade, and he needs to make a DC27 Toughness save. Which he does. But nope. Luck Control. Wow, Wildcard, you are the crappiest hexmaster ever.

Orion is Dazed, so he's not doing anything. Devil Ray, meanwhile, attempts to grapple Vanguard. The attack misses, however.

Can I get the results for Skill Mastery 20 Gather Information with Well Informed, 25 Notice and 25 Sense Motive on Vanguard?

There's not much intel on Vanguard, but it appears that he's been seen operating in New York City and Philadelphia. Noted styles spotted in his vigilante career involve Modern Army Combatives, which would indicate that he's ex-military (or active service, by some odd quirk). His equipment looks to be state-of-the-art, and the rifle certainly looks like it came from the AEGIS armory. As for Sense Motive, he appears quite focused on the Crime League.

And Wildcard is out - or would be, if he didn't spend an HP to force a reroll on the attack! Which... does not end well for him. He is not out, but he is Dazed and Staggered.

Top of the round. Edge is up next.

Edge inspires as a full-round action (-1 HP)

He then surges (I'll go ahead and spend the HP to cancel fatigue now.

He reaches out and grabs Devil Ray with his Perception Range Damaging Move Object (standard)

Grapple check: DC 48

I'm declaring now that I'll spend an HP to make him reroll and take the worse of two if he beats that.

All right, Wander's already in melee range with Orion, so that makes things much simpler. Move action for acrobatic bluff, DC 32 to resist since she's inspired. Standard action to beat him about the head and torso with the bat.

That's an Inspired Power Attack, which zeroes out on the attack and adds +5 to damage. Roll is a 20, which is enough since he's flat-footed. Toughness DC 30.

As rolled last night, Orion fails to spot the BS and gets a bat right in the face. As he's DEF +4 when he's Flat-Footed, that means it's a DC33 Toughness save. As he's already Staggered, he goes down. Wildcard realizes when there's a sucker deal going on, and holds off from spending.

Edge: Seized Initiative, Unharmed, 5 HP

Wander: 24, Unharmed, Inspired +5, 3 HP

Devil Ray: 15, Bruised x1, 0 HP

Midnight: 8, Unharmed, Inspired +5, 3 HP

Vanguard instantly Regenerates his Bruised and decides to go for Wildcard. He rolls a 23 on a Startle check, Wildcard just falls for it and is left Flat-Footed. Vanguard then opens fire, Power Attacking with the aid of Inspire. He just manages to hit, scoring a DC26 Toughness with Autofire. Wildcard takes a Bruised.

Devil Ray: 15, Bruised x1, Bound, 0 HP

Midnight: 8, Unharmed, Inspired +5, 3 HP

Cannonade decides to go for Devil Ray instead, once more Power Attacking. As Devil Ray is Bound, that hits, but as Cannonade had to move to get to him, it doesn't result in coup de grace. But still DC31 Toughness save. He takes another Bruise.

Edge: Seized Initiative, Unharmed, 5 HP

Wander: 24, Unharmed, Inspired +5, 3 HP

Wildcard: 17, Bruised x1, Dazed (Midnight's Action), Staggered, 2 HP

Devil Ray: 15, Bruised x2, Bound, 0 HP

Midnight: 8, Unharmed, Inspired +5, 3 HP

Devil Ray attempts to slip his bonds as a Move Action. That's a 38 versus a 41, so... no. At least, until Wildcard lends him a hand. 48 versus... 48. As Devil Ray has the highest bonus, he'd win... if AA didn't say he was spending for Edge to force reroll. He gets 40, Edge gets 41. Devil Ray's still bound, and can't really do anything.
