    After incapacitating the Wolf-Girl, Dan moved silently to the early Metahuman exhibit, to cut off the necromancer. After making an Action Movie entrance into the room, and getting shot up with Force Lightning, Dan found his enemy 'Red', who is actually calling herself Syrpent, waiting on the ceiling, where she dropped down, disabling Miles the Necromancer, and offering Dan a cryptic ultimatum.

    (Forgot to mention, but you recovered 6 Willpower for beating Wolf-Girl in combat)

    Syrpent is staring right at you, while Ashwood glances back and forth between the two of you. "Hurry up Javelin. If you don't pick soon, I'll have to pick for you." You correct the look of confusion that is no doubt on your face, and center the Shard Rifle on her, since ditching it would warn her. You fire two cerulean darts at her, but she saw it coming, and back flips out of the way, the force putting 'Miles' in a slightly deeper dent in the floor, and she lands perfectly on a raised mezzanine area which leads to the upper floor of exhibits, giving her a nice view down on you. "Times up." She says, mockingly, as you toss the rifle aside. She seems much more with it tonight than yesterday.

    I misread (Omega needs his daily dose of caffeine) Corrected it.

    Multiple actions still stands, since you use the lower of two die pools and for even more than one bolt, that's another multiple action. Its just a little much to go crazy when its not a combat time. She's not declaring attacks against you, and actually, she seemed more interested in not fighting you, since she said it wasn't the right time.

"So, what do you want, Red? Trying to prove you're better to Moreau? Well, I give, I don't want to be better than you. I don't want to be better than anybody. I just want to live my life." She smiles again, with teeth. "No, no, no Daniel. We're past that now. This is about much more than the Good Doctor. It is about favors owed. I'm going to repay mine. And In return...

    Red snarls. "Outdated popcultural references wont save you now!" She claps her hands together, and speaks in her freaky backward language she uses to cast spells. You get read to try and hit her with a Psibolt, but she's getting better at this, and in now time, two red circles of energy appear beside her. You are immediately incensed at her flagrant violation of the rules. Then you don't have time to be incensed, as pillars of red light appear, and coalesce into two strange, winged creatures. They are pitch black, except for certain areas of them, which are glowing luminous green. They have long, large wings, a cross between a bat's and a wasp's. They have pointed faces, with multifaceted eyes and antennae, like an insect, but a sharp, beak-like protrusion, filled with long sharp teeth and a long, licking tongue. It it is covered in a black, chitinous hide, but each of its four long limbs are tipped in razor sharp talons. "Have fun!" Red shouts, and retreats away from the edge, toward the doors into the upper floor of exhibits.

    It means we took magic entirely because it was more effective against outsiders than psychic stuff.

    We straight up asked Blackthorn, "There's this outside bitch all up in my grill. What do?"

    and he said "Here, have some magic."
    >> Omega !Q7t.srvWZ6 02/25/12(Sat)18:12 No.18098066

    Byakhee are not inherently magical (Dan can tell) They are physical too, so they can probably break the plane of the circle. Also, Ashwood is still here.


    The circle is useless against physical objects. If an Outsider is manifested in a full physical form, then they can break the plane easy-peasy.


    Dan isn't a proper psion. He just uses the modules as discreet psychic powers. So unless he finds some kind of weapon charging module, that is outside his power base.


    Barrier is 5d

    You grab the pike from your back, and draw it, and summon your Option, ready to fire on any one you decide you don't like. It appears in its usual, multi-tone ball of blue and white light. The first Byakhee hops up onto the railing for the balcony-like area, and spreads its wings, which scatter the eerie green light of its abdomen around the room, and it lets out a piecing whistling screech which echoes around the room, hurting your ears. Its brethren does the same. They get ready to glide down, and probably do something nasty involving your throat, and their sharp, pointy teeth.

    (3x10 and 2x6 on Byakhee 1 and 2)
    (They roll 2x10 and 2x6 respectively. #1 takes three shock and three killing to the FACE, and is quite dead, but #2 will burn his 2x6 to evade)

    Left-handed, since your right is holding the spear, you hurl two bolts in quick succession. The first catches the first creature with its mouth wide open, and your bolt passes down its gullet, and out the back of its head, which explodes in a shower of green phosphorescent goo. It slumps to the ground, and rapidly starts becoming less corporeal, fading back to wherever it came from.

    Number two is lucky, it saw what you did to thing 1, so when your bolt tracks its way, it takes a flying leap off the mezzanine railing, and sails through the air maybe a dozen yards to cling to the ceiling behind you, and hisses at you.


    (It's my official policy that Dan is a Schrodinger's race, mostly because by default I've always pictured him as white, and I'm probably not going to stop doing so now, and I don't want to offend or deter anyone who has a different image)

    (No 10s on the Head Called shot)
    (But Option makes 3x8 on its attack, for 3 shock and 3 killing to the torso.)
    (And the Byakhee only gets a 2x3, which becomes no set when the Option shoots the bugger off the ceiling)

    You try and catch its head with a bolt, but your angle is off, and all you do is obliterate some of the artfully decorated ceiling. The beast lets go of the section of ceiling its hanging onto, and tries to drop on you like some kind of space-wasp Batman. The Option catches it right in the center of mass, which causes a spatter of glowing green blood, and also pushes it off axis enough to crash to the floor in front of you. You are now about two feet away from a horrible space wasp with a maw full of pointy teeth which looks like its designed to puncture your neck and suck your blood out like an obscene mosquito.

    (2x5 on weapon attack)
    (Byakhee gets 2x8 on a claw attack, which are Pen 1, but the armor is HAR 3, so you're fine. Since you don't take damage, your set goes through, and you take off its right arm.)
    (Option also makes a 2x5, but since that hit location no longer exists, it misses)

    Rip and tear, rip and tear! You swing the pike up in both hands, for an attack. The enemy is quicker than you thought, and one of its talons rakes our, scoring your armor with a sound at least five times worse than nails on a chalkboard. Finding yourself otherwise unharmed, you retaliate and take the offending arm off with a retaliatory sweep of your glaive. The Option must have had the same idea, because the void where its elbow would go takes a bolt about half a second later.

    You scoop up the shard rifle as you go past, tearing up the stairs to an upper floor gallery on the history of painting. As you go, the mist clinging to the floor starts dissipating and the lights which were dimmed before start raising. You can also year sirens approaching.

    As you break the distance, you see a fire escape door half-way down the gallery swinging wide, and Syrpent is no where in sight. So, you'd guess she's thataway.

    (You'll need an Athletics check to get there in time to see her, and seeing her means you might be able to shoot at her. So if you want to add to that.)

    Psibolt is Pen 1, deals width in Shock and Killing damage, and you're up to 10 dice in it. (Coordination+Miracle). Before you ask, you guys keep missing because you make multiple actions or multiple called shots. The Psibolts are obvious though, so should you ever need to be stealthy
    Shard Rifle is 6 Dice, Width in Shock and Killing, Pen 4
    Knife and Glaive are both 5 Dice, but I usually give you a circumstantial bonus dice for reach with the Glaive. Polearms are pretty much designed to give you an advantage in situations against people who do not also have teh polearms. Knife does W in K and pike is W+1 in K, both are Pen 2.

    For comparison, if you had snagged that Plasma Rifle, that would have been W+1 in SK, with Pen 2 and the Burn quality.

    "Iciuhca!" You shout, and do some air elemental fury shit on your body, to propel you faster. Like you enhancements before, you make yourself lighter and faster, gathering a wind behind you. You also make a couple paintings crooked.

    (4x5 on Athletics check. You are the WIND)

    In a dead, magic enhanced run, you clear the distance, which has got to be about 15-20 yards, in a matter of moments. You skid to a halt and turn on a dime, shoving your head into the fire stairwell.

    You give chase to her, at full speed, and hurl a bolt. At the same time, Option drops a bolt. She hears them both sizzle through the air, and casts her ward behind her instinctively, without looking. Which is probably what got her. The bolt from Option smacks harmlessly off the ward wall, but your own bolt sails clean through, and clips her shoulder. She cries in pain, stumbles a couple steps, then regains her footing, and keeps going, ditching the hoodie behind her as she goes. She's about 10 yards from the front edge of the museum roof, and you're about 20-30 yards from her.

    (2x4 and 2x9 on Evocation)
    (She gets 3x10 on Agility to get the fuck out of the way before that goes off)

    You cry out for your earth evocation to try and catch her, but the instant you move, she simply leans back, and drops off the edge of the roof.

    Moving quick, you rush up to the lip, and have to shade your eyes from the spotlights still aimed at that spot. You see her mid fall, looking up. There's no spell or anything, so how would she survive the fall? Then she speaks a horrible un-word. Whatever she said was so very wrong, on a fundamental level of this universe, your mind blanks it out entirely. You only know she said something, and it was bad.

    (2x3 on Stability)

    You drop to your knees, feeling sick to your stomach, and light-headed, but manage to stay focused and conscious. At the same time, she spoke the un-word, all the streetlights on the block, and the spotlights the police dragged out, explode in a shower of sparks. The lights and sirens of the police vehicles skip for a couple seconds. And a big wound in reality opens up under Syrpent, and she drops through it out of sight, after which the steps up to the museum are just steps again.

    Below on the street, you can hear some of the cops weeping or retching. You guess Metacrime will be here shortly.

    Admittedly, shooting the guard would. But I think that at this point she's being complicit, and she'll tell us the truth.

    Because you're trying to make friends with a girl (she was describe more as a catgirl-but-wolf, not a furry) who shot us with a machine gun and likely murdered others this night and, in fact, likely before this night too. You're suggesting we become guilty of aiding and abetting a fugitive and committing perjury, both of which are felonies, to do so. You're either trying to fuck her (foolish, but forgivable) or are suggesting something profoundly retarded.

    You have no way to know she killed anyone, either today or before that. There's vague circumstantial evidence for today, maybe, and absolutely none for before this. If she is innocent, then she hasn't actually committed any crime except for assault, on ourselves. Which we can choose not to press charges for.

    You head on back down, down the fire stairs, and back into the metahuman exhibit, which you find curiously empty. You keep going, back to the main lobby, and find Ashwood presiding over the wolf-girl, who is sitting more or less where you left her, cross-legged, with her hands in front of her. Her nose looks better, but not properly reset. Miles the Necromancer has become best friends with her other set of zip-cuffs, and is lying drooling and unconscious on the floor. Looks like his shoulder is dislocated.

    "She get away?" Asks Ashwood. "Yep." You say, simply. "I'm surprised to didn't see her exit." You gesture vaguely at the front. "I heard it alright." He says, in response. He jerks his head at the two would be thieves. "How do you want to handle these two?" You shrug. "Tell it like it is? I mean, its our word against theirs at this point." You look down at yourself, then at the wolf-splice. "Though with me an' her, it'll be hard to prove much of anything happened." You gesture to the face that you're pretty much unblemished, and so is she. "Now I'm going to put these back, before the police snipers decide to to drop me." You say, half-joking. "Not so fast."

    You turn to the entrance to see Police Captain Katherine Skinner, head of Metahuman Crimes Division is standing there, fully suited in her power armor, except for her helmet. In one arm is a giant ballistic shield you know is made from the same stuff tank armor is made from, and in her bionic arm is her Desert Eagle. She jabs a finger at you. "That's Evidence."

    The captain notices the the girl with the wolf-ears. "Shit." She says, simply. "A cold-war relic, and a cute girl. No way in hell I'm putting you in jail."

    She turns back to you. "Put those down some where so CSI can bag them, and we're gonna have a nice long talk." She doesn't look at Ashwood, but she does address him. "And you, Ashwood, will be talking with the curator about how the Ashwood Family Foundation will cover all the repair costs, then wait quietly for whatever suit is currently in your family employ to come spirit you away, or so help me god, there will be police brutality."

    You carefully set down the pike, which is stained with two colors of blood, behind you, then the shard rifle. "Alright" Says Captain Skinner. "You're statement, please. Preferably telling me how they were going to eat babies, because the jury is gonna feel so sorry for these folks, they might just sentence them to a gift basket." You suspect this is the limit of the Captain's sense of humor. The supersolider swears in Dutch again, and Skinner pokes her with her metal boot in the ribs, causing the girl to let out an exhalation that sounds a lot like a 'woof'. "Quiet merc.

    You tell the slightly expurgated version of your tale. She asks a couple questions which you answer. She nods at the end, then looks down at the two incapacitated criminals. She shoots a glance at at the wolf-girl, then back to you. "Meta-on-meta fights, especially for D-listers like you two don't do much for the jury, these days." She looks over her shoulder and whistles, and a few more metacops, in full armor gear walk up, and she addresses them. She points at Miles. "Cuff this one in an ambulance. His good arm. Then send the anti-magic unit over to his hospital. Have the detective with them book him on Trespass, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and Attempted Grand Larceny. Also whatever we call it when somebody uses a mountain of corpses for something other than medical school." Two of them nod, and pick up Miles and carry him outside.

    A lancer is someone who stabs a person with a spear in melee. It has to be about throwing, to fit with the psibolt thing. Basically, the option is Javelin. You can pick a different language, I guess, but whatever language it's in, it has to mean Javelin.

    She turns to the wolf-girl. "Bagging you on the Trespass and the Assault charges, and when ATF hears about it, you'll probably be getting it Federal for the weapons without the proper stamps. And if what he says about the guard is true, that'll be 1st degree murder, later." Wolf-girl says simply, with her bad accent and recently unbroken nose "I'm a private contractor. My job to keep harm from coming to Mr. Gutermuth. Weapons were provided by the family. Their problem if they aren't legal." The captain crouches down in front of the girl, and narrows her eye. "Kid, you and I both know the US doesn't hold those Private Contractor laws up so high since the war ended." Wolf-girl sticks her tongue out at the captain, who sighs and stands up. "We'll see how that holds up with the judge. Book her." She says this last part to the remaining metacop. "Ashwood!" She shouts, and he appears from fucking nowhere. "Yes, captain?" "Since the family hasn't sent a lawyer yet, you have the joy of coming down to the station with me and Mr. Fortesque here, so I can get your statements signed, and Detectives Howard and Philips can talk to you.

    The facial area on this Eldar helmet is about right, but a Cyrean helmet would not have such a high peak, and would instead be much lower and rounded, fitting pretty well with the head to keep that profile minimal.

    Probably not. Their manufacture is a little outside of Human ability, and even Regis can't make interstellar special orders. While Cyreans aren't quite at nanofabrication, they are pushing that limit, so the armor is produced quickly using fabricators, custom fit to each soldier. If you need a new piece, they requisition you a replacement part.

    Uh no. Pay attention.

    Synthetically assembled crystal, actually. And as I stipulated here; >>18102764 its not something you can buy in bulk and take to a workbench. Need a fabricator to build it properly.


    Regis does army/police surplus. He could get you a ballistic helmet, or something.

    That's better than nothing. Do they sell glossy paints in Cyrean Blue, maybe with an undercoat of Cyrean Violet?
    >> Anonymous 02/26/12(Sun)01:33 No.18103022
    Ew no. Why don't we just focus on making a MAGIC helmet whenever we're in trouble? That way we don't need to store it anywhere.

    Uh, I'm going to go with yes.

    Could we modify Barrier in such a way that it would do that? Actually, could we take a called shot with Barrier to try to get a 2x10?
    >> Omega !Q7t.srvWZ6 02/26/12(Sun)01:43 No.18103149

    I'm going to say no. Called Shots are really a combat-only maneuver, and if you could just take some penalties to set the die roll like that, there'd be no point in hard or wiggle dice.

    Hrm, though, since you can normally buy hard and wiggle dice for miracles, I'd say you could do some heavy training with the barrier to try and harden it up some. But that would probably involve standing somewhere with your barriers up and letting people, like, hit you with stuff.

    I think Johnny would be up for that. Let's get him some boxing gloves.
    >> Anonymous 02/26/12(Sun)01:45 No.18103171
    So there's no way to focus the barrier on a smaller area to increase it's strength?
    >> Omega !Q7t.srvWZ6 02/26/12(Sun)01:49 No.18103226

    Nah, not really. Discreet powers, remember? Dan just envelops himself in a psychic shield. It's a HALO level module, so its something loads of Cyrean grunts do.

    Also, it does appear this thread is autosaging.

    Eh, if you're not going to start a new thread tonight, we may as well just ride this discussion until this falls off the last page. So, how many days of getting punched in the face by Johnny would it take to improve Barrier? Also, what does Barrier actually look like in practice?
    >> Anonymous 02/26/12(Sun)01:51 No.18103253
    Mrm. Magic only then, unless we find another module.
    Are you making a new thread? I thought we were finished for the day.
    >> Anonymous 02/26/12(Sun)01:53 No.18103273
    You want to, what, pull rock from the ground to make a helmet? I don't think we know any magic that could actually make a helmet that wouldn't hurt our neck to lift.

    No, I mean a magical barrier around our head. Or other parts.

    Nah, not doing a new thread tonight, and this one is already 'chived.

    As for what it looks like in practice, have a picture from my collection.
    >> Anonymous 02/26/12(Sun)01:56 No.18103308
    We don't have that kind of magic. At all. I would rather upgrade barrier for now. If we can reliably get a 2x10 barrier, we'll be really, really well-protected against headshots.
    >> Omega !Q7t.srvWZ6 02/26/12(Sun)01:56 No.18103309

    He is pointing out that your current knowledge of magic precludes that. You'd need to broaden your horizons before you get the magical green lantern ring.
    >> Omega !Q7t.srvWZ6 02/26/12(Sun)02:00 No.18103357
    Any more questions before this thread 404s?

    Because I'm not making a new one until tomorrow afternoon.

    Does a 2x10 barrier serve as armor or does it gobble sets?
    >> Omega !Q7t.srvWZ6 02/26/12(Sun)02:07 No.18103432

    Interference is like Armor, reduces the width of the chosen opponents set or sets. Well, though actually, since it has Duration, when you use it, it applies its interference sets to anything until its beaten or the combat/5 minutes are up. You just rolled 2x1 on the first set ever, so everything kept going through it until miss Bertha van Wolf-Ears actually hit you with a Suppressing Fire in location 1.

    Yeah, we should probably train it up. Or get a better magical barrier, since that would probably be more adaptable.
