"That's right Chuck, I'm here live at the scene where early this morning two men believed to have been responsible for the kidnapping of five-year old William Traver were found dead, one from a gunshot wound and the other apparently the victim of a fall, as well as what witnesses describe as "huge wolf bites".
"William, the son of billionaire Walton Traver, is of course heir to the vast Traver mining empire. He was discovered outside this building after an anonymous phone call to police, and Chuck, while his family is not speaking publicly on the kidnapping, William reportedly thanked 'the red angel' for rescuing him."
"Chief Brindle! Betsy Carter, Channel 2 News, any word on who this 'red angel' could be?"

"About time you showed up!"
"You look like shit," Sandy laughs. No kidding. I spent two hours poking at my arm with disinfectant before I was doing more harm than good, then wrapped it in what was left of the tape from when I twisted my ankle last summer. Took a couple of pain pills, too. But I still feel like I got shot."Yeah, I was out late last night.""You look like you were partying pretty hard! Did you meet a guy?""I met a few guys..."
"...but they were all losers."
"I met this guy last week named Chad-"Sandy keeps talking, but all I can focus on is the guy on the sidewalk outside. He's one of the Squinter's goons, or at least he was until I killed his boss.
The Squinter said he was bringing the guns in for Bottled Blonde, the biggest gangster in the city - this might be my only chance to get to her!Roll a d12 and link to this post for whatever you do, please! To roll, put dice+1d12 in the Options field!

He flings his free hand at the gun, rolling partway off me long enough for me to grab his hand, but this is my bad arm and I can already feel my grip loosening.

I step into the clearing and call out a challenge. It sounds great in my head, but I'm running on no sleep, I was shot last night, I just lost a fight and chased a guy halfway across the city. From the way the two look at me, it doesn't sound as great out loud.

One last look in the mirror and I'm ready to paint the town red.

I tell her trees are great. Everybody loves trees. I just want to stay a human so I can love trees. Goddammit, what are these chains made out of?"You don't understand," she laughs. "Once you're a plant, you'll love being a plant!"
Finally I resort to that old favorite, promising money. I can't believe it gets a response at first, but it does.

Chlorophilia leans in, and I can see that her eyes don't look like a normal human's eyes. The veins look like something you'd see on leaves. "Where are you going to get all this money?"Roll a d12 and link to this post for whatever you do, please?

"Now hold still, this will probably hurt!" Chlorophilia reassures me as the needle descends toward my eye. I strain my wrist against the chain until I feel like my arm is tearing off, but I can't reach it. This is it, this is the end, this is-
"Urk!" Chlorophilia squeaks as something yanks her backward out of my field of vision.
oh snap, endor payback time
Then there's nothing but silence."Hello?" I call. Blood and adrenaline pounds in my temples as all I can hear is my own ragged breath.
Before I can draw in any more air, the rack lurches into the air and spins around, and I almost fall on the floor when the chains sag and snap open!"Wha-"
"Good evening, my lady. I apologize for that delay, it took a moment longer to hack their system than I had hoped."
"Shall we be off?"What will you do now?

"Please stand behind me, my lady. These windows are shatterproof."
I barely have time to clap my gloves over my ears before a plume of superhot gas explodes outward, exploding its way through the window and roiling into the night air.
"Come, my lady, follow me!"Like that he grabs me and leaps out throw the broken window and my stomach lurches as my brain registers that we're ninety stories above traffic.
We spiral in freefall and I start to tell him that this was a bad idea...
...when he shrugs his shield underneath us and I feel a thump like a sonic boom. "There, no danger at all!" he laughs as we somehow cease our plummet and begin rising and speeding up, until we're surfing on air!
"Ah, here we are!" he says as we drift to the ground on the outskirts of the city. "I would not presume to ask you for your address, but if I might, I would like to give you a small piece of advice."
"Chlorophilia can be killed, but her anatomy is not that of a normal human. Adam Bomb may possibly be killed, but so far, no one has succeeded. Bottled Blonde has been killed before. As you saw, it rarely stops her."
"You have a great deal of spirit, but the time may come when I won't be able to save you."What will you do now?

Rolled 7 (1d12)>>38860048"Well, maybe we could make sure you won't have to by going after them together? I mean, maybe we can make Meadhead McGee choke to death?"
Rolled 4 (1d12)>>38860048Who are you?
Lack of sleep, all the adrenaline, the flight down here, it all wraps together, leaving me weak-kneed and bewildered. I feel like a teenager. Horny, pissed off, I can't decide whether I want to sleep with this guy or kill him. All I can manage to blurt out is "Do I know you?"
"You don't know me," he says and shrugs that shield off. It almost hits the ground but not quite, just floating until he puts his full weight down. "It's safer for you that way."
He says something else as he rockets into the air, but I can't quite hear it. I think it's "Keep your mask on".
>>38861003"Hey! I can see your face! Howdy, neighbor!"
I wish he had dropped me off a little closer to home.
>>38861024Ha ha, whoops! Well, rest assured that you couldn't quite see who it was from that angle.

>>38861163Yeah, she peed herself on the table remember.That's gonna be one awkward cab ride home.If she has some change in her leotard that is.
Oh boy, that was a lot of fun. Sorry for al the lag, I'm trying to keep a high level of detail in this game, but there were so many unexpected twists that it took a long time to build all the sets!
>>38861264It was worth it though, the street scenes really brought the setting to life.I like how this run walked the line between edgy comics/noir and silly comics hero story.
Quite a few Easter eggs in this episode. Some players probably recognize the evil villain torture rack as a modded version of the evil villain torture rack that Lord Business strapped Emmet to in the Lego Movie. I put the Melting Room set together a while ago, but I figured I could change it up a little and use it in a game somewhere down the line.
Bottled Blonde's head is a fairly rare piece - a transparent green minifig head with skull printing. It was only available in a single Belville set (pic related - they were a line of Barbie-style Lego sets that came out a few years ago). It cost me five dollars on Bricklink, but it was well worth it.
Chlorophilia's hair is another rare piece - it was only available in a couple of racing sets and cost five bucks as well. I've had my eye on both of them for at least a couple years, but once I had the idea for this game I finally bit the bullet and bought them both along with Red's masked head.
As a kid, my city dwellers always watched Channel 2 News because I had this 1x2 brick with the TV 2 sticker on it. I'm not sure where I got it, because Bricklink seems to only have it listed in blue. It might be a regional difference. What makes it better is that as a kid I had another City set that came with some numbered tiles, and two of them were "2"s. Thanks to these two factors, the official colors for the news station are mustard yellow and ketchup red.
How long have you been collecting lego pieces, OP? How much have you spent on them? It's the first I've ever seen someone who's actually serious about their lego collection instead of a leftover thing from childhood. How'd you get so interested in them, anyways?
>>38861774Awwww shit, son! Lego Race! Fuck yeah, Sharkman.>>38861859Lego Quest, did you ever get that Lego set with the news van and the chopper? Blue and white color scheme. My folks bought it for me like twenty years ago and I learned a few months back that it was a rare set.
>>38861715I have a similar one in blue from an old medieval set.I mean it's not the same.
>>38861978not OP/LQ.But you should head over to /toy/ some time if you're interested. There's a general up 24/7.
>>38861978>How long have you been collecting lego pieces, OP?I probably got my first Duplos when I was 1 or 2, but I got my first shoebox of Legos when I was 3, and my first actual storebought set when I was 4.>How'd you get so interested in them, anyways?Most of my collection is leftover from childhood. I've spent a few hundred bucks on pieces in the last decade, mostly for this game. As >>38862051 said, you should hang out in the Lego General on /toy/. I'm lurking in there all the time.>>38861981>Lego Quest, did you ever get that Lego set with the news van and the chopper? Blue and white color scheme.No, but I had this. It's where I got the numbered yellow tiles.>>38862030I love transparent pieces in general. My absolute favorite piece of all time is the trans-green cylinder that Chlorophilia has on her spray gun.
>>38862187That's pretty sweet, son.This set, which I mentioned, was one of my first along with an Explorians outpost, the Outback Airstrip set, and a whole bucket of Lego bricks which somehow included some 1980s spacemen.One day, I'll rebuild all these old sets, even if I have to tear apart the MOCs I've built.
>>38862187Why the trans-green cylinder in particular?Magic potion from knights?Or classic space magic?
>>38862459>Outback AirstripThat thing's amazing. I really wish I had one. I think both of those were square lol in my dark age, so if I ever want them it'll have to be on cracklink.>>38862508>Why the trans-green cylinder in particular?I guess it's because as a very little kid in the early 1980s, there weren't many trans pieces in my Lego collection. I remember specifically it was this sethttp://brickset.com/sets/886-1/Space-Buggywhere I got my very first one.For little kid me, it was just really enthralling to see this translucent Lego piece. Then I got a few more in other colors. The blue one was pretty special too; the red ones were more commonplace. Nowadays there are tons of trans pieces, but I was just at the right age when they started becoming common where it was a novelty to me.
>>38862590You'll never get my little radio block, do you hear? NEVER!>trans pieces were rareThey were also flimsy as hell. I've got one that cracked like a wineglass from just being in the same box as other pieces.
That didn't end as expected when I went to sleep half way. Thanks for running!
