1500 February 8th, 2014 in Brooklyn, NY
[5:07:45 PM | Edited 5:08:03 PM] Fate: *February 8th 3pm, the time was fast approaching each of you were told to arrive in the meat packing district of Brooklyn New York at Warehouse 12. As you arrive at the location you will notice the warehouse doors are locked Patli arrived early and is positioned on the fire escape looking over the front entrance. Teagan arrives via cab at the east entrance door Tesla the rear entrance Khent west and Dagny the front entrance.*
[5:08:53 PM] Patli: Patli watches the others approach, remaining silent and observing them.
[5:08:57 PM] Dagny: “Ah... Hello?” ventures Dagny. She looks around the warehouse warily, not sure what she’s supposed to be expecting.
[5:10:13 PM] Tesla: The good Doctor has managed to salvage some dignity. A good shower and a bath-tub wash of his labcoat, as well as some grooming, has him back in form. However, being barefoot and without his usual attire has left him all the more... touchy.
[5:11:13 PM] Teagan: Frowns faintly as she adjusts the hemp bag on her shoulder and looks at the giant bashing stick and then the warehouse. “better not be more of that shit” she mutters softly. Trying the door she was let off in front of to see if it’s open.
[5:17:48 PM] Patli: Patli will be hiding in some shadows.
[5:18:15 PM] Kent: Kent has a long jacket on, not because it was cold, but because it hid two very important items that he felt he might need if this turned out to be some sort of trap... while the man he had met certainly seemed the real deal, he still did not trust what was waiting for him here...
[5:18:49 PM] Patli: Patli had no idea what to expect here, or even why his father had sent him, so he came in cautiously, and fairly early. Finding a place to hide and observe silently.
[5:23:18 PM] Fate: *As each of you try your perspective doors they seem to remain locked, As each of you begin to give up all of the doors open at once, the window leading to the fire escape slide open. Leading into the very large warehouse. Inside if very dimly lit, but there is a a large light hanging in the center with the forms of 4 figures too far to make clear of who they are.*
[5:23:41 PM] Tesla: Tesla strides right in. “I have arrived! This misbegotten event can begin. And the sooner it is over the better... I require pants.”
[5:24:33 PM] Fate: *patli will notice the second floor is mainly open up top looks as if it were just offices and two large stair cases leading to the center of the first floor. No lights upstairs are on. *
[5:24:41 PM] Patli: Patli will make his way deeper inside, but sticking to the dark areas around the edges.
[5:24:50 PM] Patli: On the second floor.
[5:25:11 PM] Patli: Getting as close to those figures as possible while still avoiding the light.
[5:25:54 PM] Kent: Kent got to a side of the Warehouse, looking around curiously... hoping to not look TOO suspicious as he looked for anyone that might have staked this place out... if seeing noone that might be watching, he went up to the door that he had been dropped at, giving it a test to open. He was wearing a long brown coat that covered past his waist, primarily to hide a couple of items he wouldn’t go into this situation without. Having tried the door and finding it locked, he huffed a bit. “Why do you go inviting someone somewhere and leave the door locked?” As he said this, the door opened in front of him... causing him to jump a bit. He takes a bit of a breath, and quietly but quickly entered the warehouse... 4 figures. One of them would possibly be his father, having been told he would be here, but who were the other three? The only way to tell for certain... was to get closer, which is exactly what he’d do.
[5:26:55 PM] Dagny: Dagny steps inside, rubbing her upper arm uncertainly. She looks around the inside of the massive building briefly before squinting to see if she can make out the four figures better. As she approaches she dips her hand into her jeans’ pocket. Not that she thought the mirror would do much good. It was just reassuring to know it was there. Briefly she wonders if any more visions were forthcoming... hopefully they wouldn’t involve more plane crashes.
[5:28:15 PM] Teagan: Teagan taps the ball of the blackthorn on her thigh and walks towards the light, her brow furrowed as she takes the stairs if she must or just strides towards the center. “Fookin’ creepy” she murmurs as she clenches her fists “and I don’t see a dragon anywhere” she mutters.
[11:45:02 PM] Fate: *you feel a sudden tingle run down your spine you dont know what it is but you know it cant be good, whatever it is its happening now*
[8:42:43 PM] Patli: Patli looks behind himself quickly, reaching for his knife.
[8:43:22 PM] Fate: *You notice a single figure attempting to crawl through the window you came into*
[8:43:37 PM] Patli: Examining him.
[8:44:15 PM] Fate: *He is obviouslt military he is wearing night vision goggles he will notice you sooner rather than later*
[8:44:43 PM] Patli: I’ll try to sneak around behind him if I can.
[8:45:31 PM] Fate: *you can he does not see you yet but he begins his scans of the room*
[8:46:55 PM] Patli: I creep up behind him and put my knife against his throat, and whisper in his ear, “How did you know about this meeting?”
[8:48:14 PM] Fate: *He Yells. "SECOND FLOOR SECOND FLOOR " and simultaniously fires his M16 into the air*
[8:48:48 PM] Patli: Patli cuts his throat, throws him down, and jumps over the railing to the first floor.
[9:21:31 PM] Fate: *As you stop and turn around the punk rocker from when you met your father is standing with her hands on two of the soldiers whispering to them. They train their guns on the other two and fire killing them then turning the guns on themselves.* “Hello there handsom”
[9:25:47 PM] Patli: Patli grins at her. “A dramatic sense of timing.”
[9:28:53 PM] Fate: “I really dont care, me and my partner are just here cause were getting paid... .I dont care anything about you cutie... Just dont get paid if you die. So if you would please follow me to Warehouse 12 please.” *The punk rocker would point her hand to the wall and a blast of energy would radiat from her hand and blast a hole in the wall she would begin to run * “LETS GO”
[9:32:17 PM] Patli: Patli crouches down to pick up one of the guns of the fallen soldiers, and any visible ammo clip reloads, and nods, following.
[9:33:36 PM] Fate: *It doesnt take long to get to the right warehouse with Bridgette it was only a few blocks up. she opens the door inside you see your father standing with a few other indivduals.*
[9:00:47 PM] Fate: You would notice that 4 of the soldiers are using unusual weapons as you look at them they appear to be using mini arc weapons capable of putting a hole in the toughest tank armor with ease... .technology based on your experiments
[9:09:46 PM] Fate: I will also allow the sound purview everyone is getting an additional relic in the next few sessions if you would like it will have that on it
[9:16:59 PM] Fate: *As you go flying you are caught by Anton Briggs* “Sup doc... .looks like we just cant stop running into each other.”
[9:17:22 PM | Edited 9:17:43 PM] Fate: *He looks up and flies off barely escaping the collapsing debris grabbing you by the back of the lab coat*
[9:17:35 PM] Tesla: “Get me out of here, you sarcastic leviathan!”
[9:19:13 PM] Fate: *He puts you down as a soldier yells freeze.* “Hey no need to be rude now. Im gonna go help out your friends in the fog.” *he takes off leaving a crater in the floor*
[9:20:02 PM] Tesla: “Careful! Those weapons resemble some things off my daydream list! Particle cannons!”
[9:26:11 PM] Fate: *A woman in a blue jumpsuit calls out to you.* “Hey i aint getting paid to watch you stand around GET OVER HERE!”
[9:27:28 PM] Tesla: Tesla nods, running over to her. “We meet again. Fortunately, the prison-issues are obscured... I assume we are waiting for my counterparts to be rescued?”
[9:29:28 PM] Fate: (you havent met scarlett actually you met a red head this is who is greeting you) https://db4sgowjqfwig.cloudfront.net/assets/295760/scarlet.png?1392316311
[9:31:11 PM] Tesla: As he rubs the dust from his eyes... "You’re not the one from before... "
[9:31:25 PM] Tesla: He baseball-grips the wrench.
[9:32:38 PM] Fate: “Nope... .Im here to get you to where you need to be... Now you can either come with me by your own accord or not... Either way I dont get paid unless you survive and make it to warehouse 12 so... You coming or what?” She motions toward a whole that one of the particle cannons made*
[9:33:18 PM] Tesla: “Oh, I am pleased to follow if that’s the goal... lead on!”
[9:35:10 PM] Fate: * she begins running as you follow you realize you only have to go a few blocks to get to the right location You notice the redhead leading another man into the warehouse as you enter you see your father with other indivduals* (please pause here till everyone arrives)
[9:36:34 PM] Tesla: (No prob)
[10:04:20 PM] Tesla: Sentence started: "I have been sabotaged, near-assassinated, exploded, stabbed, kidnapped, held captive, brainwashed, had my memories violated, my work absconded with, and my clothing stolen! And furthermore... "
[10:52:51 PM] Fate: *as you head upstairs you see the box Anubis mentioned inside the office as soon as you open it you notice that you did an amazing job. Just by the look of it you can tell it has multiple redundancies protecting it. Biometric DNA scanner, Voice analyzer, Retna scanner You also notice one that noone else would. If you miss any of these the entire thing will self destruct. You know that the size of the explosion could take out the entire warehouse. *
[10:53:53 PM] Tesla: Okay. My plan is to come to understand primarily the manner it stores it’s power, as well as how it generates the blast. The rest is common sense after that.
[10:54:16 PM] Tesla: NOT to try to fire it.
[10:54:36 PM] Tesla: If these things really are from my own work... I -should- be able to fathom it.
[10:58:17 PM | Edited 11:06:38 PM] Fate: You can tell it has a partical generator inside its your own design it creates a mini fusion reation and based on how you dreamed it up would bounce of a few mirrors to gain strength before coming out of the weapon itself. However It shouldnt be that strong. It should create neat holes in what ever it fired at. These things created explosions. That you are unaware of. That was not your doing, Upon further inspection you would notice other key factors that are not yours, Their is a vision enhancer that can track through walls and a feature for an auto lock on. It comes clearer now. You did not work on this thing alone.
[5:44:07 PM] Fate: *As you all begin to aproach the center of the area you noticed the figures are all hooded. They make no efforts to greet you yet. As you all close in you then realize the figures are hooded statues. The windows smash and soldiers crash in and repel down to the first floor. A man walks through the front entrance of the Warehouse and speaks into a megaphone. * “Children of the gods I welcome you all hear today. Looks as if Changing the the signs on the warehouses, and paying every cabbie in New york to take you to building 5 rather than 12 has paid off. My Name is Captain Marcus Silvestir. And you are all in my Custody. Teagan Quinn, Dagny Kron, Patli Espinoza, Dr John Holdon, and Khent Bahar you are all under arrest for terroism.” *An echo is heard from the second floor as well as automatic gun shots*
[5:46:12 PM] Tesla: “I have had enough! First killing innocents with a reckless explosion, kidnapping and brainwashing me... and now of all things FALSE CHARGES!” Tesla heads right for him. “You’ll hear from my wrench!”
[5:46:20 PM] Teagan: “Oh eat a bag of dicks” she groans as she hangs her head a moment and then turns on her heel her intent to just walk out untill someone tries to stop her.
[5:47:39 PM] Fate: *Guns point at all of you it doesnt take long for Patli to realize he too is surrounded as their glowing night vision goggles have found him as well. You all then realize you are easily out numbered 6-1*
[5:50:00 PM] Fate: *The megaphoned man would speak again* “I really dont want to have you all killed. I would really really appreciate if you all please stand down and put your bellies to the ground.” (Hans percep + aware)
[5:50:52 PM] Tesla: Tesla stops right in the middle of the room, by the cloaked statues.
[5:53:17 PM] Fate: ((hans please join rolz lasthope and roll perc + aware))
[5:54:22 PM] Patli: Patli raises his hands, but remains standing as he looks to see what the others do.
[5:54:30 PM] Tesla: (2 hits)
[5:54:52 PM] Teagan: Teagan grits her teeth “Fuck that, I didn’t do anything wrong and I’m not crawling on my belly like a snake for anybody” She cracks the blackthorn down on the concrete with an undue ammount of force. [2wp on Fog of War?]
[5:55:07 PM] Fate: ((just wanted to make sure you didnt botch))
[5:55:23 PM] Kent: Kent’s instincts picked right up the moment there was a commotion, drawing forth a pair of pistols and taking a defensive posture... as if it would help... he heard the man speak in the Megaphone and was somewhat hesitant to do as bade him... there were apparently 4 other ‘Children of the Gods’ in this place... other Scions... while he couldn’t speak on their behalf, he knew he hadn’t done anything wrong... at least not to anyone already living... there had to be some way out of this predicament...
[6:02:20 PM] Fate: *as Teagan smashes her blackthorn into the ground. Dust forms around her and begins to spread outward and spreading toward the others.* “SWITCH TO THERMAL SWITCH TO THERMAL” *Captain Silvestir commands* ((Fog of war everyone who gets within the fog which is spreading out to a max of 20 yards will get +4 dv against ranged attacks and enemies will be -4 dice those inside are -2 dice to shooting outside and enemies are +2 DV)) *Patli is currently surrounded Tesla is soon to be surrounded dagny and Khent have an opportunity to make it to the Fog))
[6:03:17 PM] Fate: ((you will be unable to truly see out but shadows will be noticed on the outside of the fog. They can enter the fog as well))
[6:04:31 PM] Tesla: Snagging one of the hooded cloaks, which should be room temperature, and running.
[6:04:55 PM] Dagny: As if static shocked, Dagny snatches her hand away from the mirror. Briefly she huffs. What was the point of having visions if she couldn’t actually figure out what was going on until it was too late to avoid it? She squares her shoulders and strides forward. Whatever it was, it featured these four figures. Though the image of blood wasn’t comforting... And then all hell breaks loose. Quickly she finds herself surrounded by soldiers. Her stomach drops. Given no other choice... she puts her hands up. “Sorry,” she says, unable to help herself. Then she clears her throat and lifts her chin a little. “Captain Silvestir, I wasn’t aware —” and instantly a fog comes up. It seemed like any chance of salvaging this situation had been dashed. Instead she makes a break for the fog.
[6:05:37 PM] Kent: Kent does indeed make a break for the crafted fog. It would give him an edge, one that would give him time to figure out what the hell to do.
[6:07:10 PM] Teagan: Teagan looks at the walking stick in her hand. “What the ever living hell?” she questions mostly to herself... before dashing towards the door she came in, her only thought escaping the jerks with the guns.
[6:08:01 PM] Patli: Patli starts in the direction of the exit as well, hoping to escape sight before the fog vanishes.
[6:12:34 PM] Fate: *Four soldiers seem to have strange looking weapons they take aim and fire at Tesla as he runs explosions create holes in walls and the floor, one of them ends close to Tesla sending him flying 30 yards another explosion sends an explosion that appears to send large amounts of the ceiling crumbling down ontop of him. They turn and begin to head toward the fog. Patli would attempt to run toward the fog, automatic fire send bullets at his feet attempting to stop him “FREEZE” yell the 4 soldiers who had guns trained on him. Dagny Khent and Teagan begin to head toward the exit as they do 6 soldiers enter through the fog guns trained on them." “Dont Move.”
[6:13:44 PM] Patli: Patli freezes in place, frowning.
[6:15:12 PM] Teagan: Teagan curses a blue streak and puts her hands up in the air. “What happened to americans having rights?” Her mouth clearly not taking the not move command seriously.
[6:17:43 PM] Dagny: Once more Dagny puts her hands up. “Some restrictions may apply,” she offers to Teagan.
[6:19:32 PM] Teagan: Teagan snorts softly “you ain’t kiddin’ sistah” heaving a great sigh. “What a steaming pile this is”
[6:20:09 PM] Kent: Kent... he knew they were caught... there was no escaping this scenario... they were going to be captured... no way they’d be able to escape this... he grimaced, bringing his hands up and letting his pistols dangle from his fingertips to be taken by their captors... Gods, would he give to have a God or five to come in and save their asses...
[6:20:14 PM] Patli: “I still want to know how the hell you guys even KNEW about all this!”
[6:20:38 PM] Fate: *Gun fire is heard from other side of the warehouse. A blur flies into the fog and two of the soldiers disapear as their screams fade into the distance. Silvestir’s voice echos through the facility. “FUCK IT KILL THEM ALL!” The 4 remaining soldiers take aim and begin to fire but as soon as they do a mountain of a man lands and grabs the three of you and hudles you together waiting for the clips to empty. Zack winks at Dagny. “Lovely seeing you again.”
[6:22:14 PM] Dagny: Dagny breathes out in relief, even letting out a soft little laugh. “Zack! I owe you a big one.”
[6:22:23 PM] Teagan: “Son of a whore!” squished against the others she winces with one eye. “Did -not- want to get this close to anyone today.”
[6:25:32 PM] Kent: Kent went wide-eyed as the giant of a man just jumped in and protected them. Though he was a little squeezed... not exactly the best situation, but it would have to do! “Was hoping for a God to come to our rescue, but since you can take bullets... you’ll have to do.” He grips his Pistols once more, contemplating if he really should fight against these soldiers... they were all just following orders from the higher up... that... Silvestir... if he could get... just a good solid bead, he knew that this man was ready to meet Ammit.
[6:27:16 PM] Fate: *Zack chuckles and then releases you all when the soldiers empty their clips another blur is seen and two more vanish, Zack turns around and snickers* "OH, he only left me two... " *The two remaining soldiers scream and begin to high tail it the other way Zack running after them closing the gap*
[6:28:34 PM | Edited 6:30:20 PM] Teagan: Teagan blinks a couple of times and then gives a laugh. “Nice. I think the scrawny one wee’d a little” snickering as she sets the blackthorn on her shoulder and glances over to Dagny. “Handy boyfriend you have there” she grins.
[6:33:17 PM] Dagny: Dagny’s heart skips over a beat as the word ‘boyfriend’ instantly translates to the name ‘Elliot’ and comes with a flash of a whole mess of emotions she wasn’t prepared to deal with post-violence. She quickly pushes them away, then smiles thinly and says, “Cousin.” She looks around, still pretty coiled up from all the action and not entirely convinced they were safe. “So, anyone know the way to Warehouse 12?” She pauses. “I hope we aren’t too late.” One might notice that she has a slight but distinct accent. She snaps a look back at the others. “Oh! Sorry. I’m Dagny, by the way.”
[6:34:59 PM] Teagan: Teagan shrugs lightly. “Still a handy fella” she smiles some and then looks towards the exit. “I guess we follow the numbers shouldn’t be too complicated eh?” she starts towards the doors. “Oh. nice ta meetcha, I’m Teagan” she offers as she adjusts her hemp purse on her shoulder.
[6:36:36 PM] Fate: *The shadows on the other side of the fog begin to vanish one by one till there are none left. and the fog begins to settle as it does, pools of blood line the floor of the warehouse 29 bodies sprawled out around you. but no sign of the one who was carrying the megaphone*
[6:37:35 PM] Kent: "Kent. We are at 5, according to that man... halfway there, it would seem. We must get there before more Soldiers come. I would wish not to harm any who do not deserve it... though the jury’s still out on that Captain... "
[6:39:07 PM] Teagan: Groans “ah . this is -not- cool” she frowns". bashing a few heads is one thing . this. man" she shakes her head as she picks her way around the bodies. “We need to get the hell out of here” she sighs, avoiding looking at the blood as much as she can on her way to the exit.
[6:39:59 PM] Kent: Kent would follow along. He had lived here, and would probably know the area at least a little better than the other two here that had no clue.
[6:40:35 PM | Edited 6:43:15 PM] Dagny: Dagny watches the blood as if mesmerized for a moment, expression thoughtful. That accounted for the statues... and the blood... (blood dripping off the side of a hospital bed)—but now the island of metal, the chalice of jewels, the eyes glowing in the darkness... quickly Dagny makes her way after Teagan. “Couldn’t have said it better myself.” She pauses. “Five? Where are the other two, then?”
[6:42:49 PM] Fate: Zack and another scion https://db4sgowjqfwig.cloudfront.net/assets/294549/anton.png?1392006844 fall from what seems out of nowhere until you notice the roof of the warehouse had recently been remodeled to provide natural sunlight. The second scion looks to you all.* “Hello, there. My name is Anton Briggs, Son of Hermes and I will be your guide for this afternoons visit to Warehouse 12 if you would all please come with me or my lovely assistant Jake here.” *Zack looks at Anton* “I hate when you call me that”
“All the more reason why I do it. ANYWAY! as I was saying please come with one of us. Once you do please hold on tight Make sure your seats and tray tables are in the upright and locked positions. Cause we are gonna fly!.” *Zack looks to Dagny.* “I dont fly... But I can jump REALLY! high”
[6:44:29 PM] Teagan: Teagan quirks a brow “or we could. you know walk like normal people?” she suggests as she eyes the fellows.
[6:45:20 PM] Dagny: Dagny smiles a bit at Zack. “Hey, I’m not one to judge. I myself can fall with style, apparently.” She nods to Anton. “Nice to meet you, Mr. Briggs.”
[6:46:40 PM] Kent: Kent grimaced. “Warehouse 12 is a long walk from here... and in the meantime, more soldiers might get here before you could successfully make it there. If it’s all the same to you, I’m sticking with the guy that can take bullets.” He steps next to Zack.
[6:46:43 PM] Fate: "Indeed you could walk but... its alot more fun to get there in style... " *He waves his hand over to teagan* “COME ON!! you know you wanna.”
[6:47:43 PM] Dagny: Dagny gives the reluctant red-head a look. “Sorry, but I think we’re past the point of normal right now.”
[6:48:22 PM] Fate: *Zack reaches a large hand down and grabs you by the waist and tucks you under his arm. The 8ft man looks down at you and nods and smiles* “Anyone else coming? We dont have all day you know.”
[6:48:35 PM] Teagan: Gives him a dubious look but shrugs faintly and steps towards whomever is least encumbered. “Fuckin’ too right” she responds to Dagny. "at least it’s not. digging through the ground like a mole or somethin’ "
[6:49:38 PM] Dagny: “Don’t jinx it,” says Dagny. “Err... not that that’s a bad thing. In case either of you two can do that.”
[6:50:13 PM] Teagan: Teagans lips curl in a smirk.
[6:51:07 PM] Dagny: Briefly she looks back at the fake Warehouse 12. “Shouldn’t we be looking for the other two... ?”
[6:51:33 PM | Edited 6:52:11 PM] Fate: Anton places his arm around Teagan, his hand lowering just a bit too far. And takes off leaving Dagny with Zack and Khent. Zack walks over and kneels. “Take hold of my neck and I’ll take you to the others... And Frigga.”
[6:53:39 PM] Teagan: Squeaks “watch it!” yelled as he takes off. About to sock ‘im one but then thinking she didn’t wanna get dropped.
[6:54:16 PM] Dagny: Dagny nods, growing considerably more serious at the name Frigga (her hands pressed against chest and forehead, saying "Breathe... ")—and takes a deep breath and does so.
[6:54:57 PM] Kent: Kent acks as he’s just absolutely treated like someone’s luggage... though he wasn’t going to complain. If this got them the hell away from here and back into safer company, he’d deal with it. “Do not drop me, or I am quite sure Anubis will have some words for you.”
[6:55:25 PM] Fate: *Zack takes off with a bounding leap through one of the holes in the ceiling then begins to hop the two blocks between warehouses with ease, Anton flies and blinding speeds You all arrive at warehouse 12 inside you will all see your parents, Patli and Dr. Tesla.*
[6:57:39 PM] Tesla: “And furthermore... I don’t know who’s underwear I have on!”
[6:57:46 PM] Teagan: Teagan sheilds her eyes from bugs and so forth with one hand the other wrapped around mr grabbies shoulder. She’s pretty damn sure he’s not gonna drop her with the hold he’s got. Letch. Soon as they land she ‘accidentally’ trods on his toes. “Thanks for the lift” said oh so sweetly.
[6:58:29 PM] Dagny: Upon seeing the other two, Dagny’s shoulders drop a little in relief. But they tense once more upon seeing Frigg. She swallows, quelling the memories before they can surface. "Sorry we’re late... " Dagny offers, quickly trailing off at Dr. Tesla’s words.
[6:59:04 PM] Patli: Patli was just approaching the gods, frowning. “How did they know we’d be here?”
[7:01:34 PM] Kent: Kent would right himself, straightening his clothing and finally putting away his pistols. "We would have been here sooner, only someone by the name of Silvestir. Marcus Silvestir... I have yet to see much of him... but by his actions back there, if anybody deserves to be sent to Ammit, it’s him. If only I’d been able to get a clear shot... "
[7:05:22 PM] Fate: *Frigga turns to Dagny as Anubis, Zeus, Tezcatlipoca, and The Dagda all begin to head to an alter underneath a Giant warehouse light * “You are right on time my dear.” *she turns to Oliva and Scarlett. * “I dont know who hired the likes of you two but I am greatful. here is your payment as I understand it” *She tosses them both a small black silk pouch. The two nod and fly off. Frigga turns to Anton and Zack* “And as I understand it you two have your orders already. So please proceed with them.” *Anton smirks and winks at Teagan before flying off, Zack looks at Dagny.* “Till next time.” *He too departs the warehouse. Frigga motions for everyone to follow her* “If the 5 of you will come with me we will get started.” *She goes and joins the others by the altar.*
[7:06:24 PM] Tesla: Tesla sighs, his venomous rant going unacknowledged, and approaches.
[7:07:21 PM] Kent: Kent would blink a bit as he was told to join them by... someone he could only assume as another God... his father was here, however... so regardless of if this woman were a God or not, he felt at least a little more safe than at Warehouse 5. He did as bade of him this time, following the lady to the others at the altar.
[7:07:40 PM] Teagan: Curls her lip at the wink and taps her thigh with the blackthorn, perhaps a bit of a silent threat. She sighs and moves to join those at the alter. Biting her tongue because she doesn’t see a bloody dragon here either. She glances to her da and then the others.
[7:08:04 PM] Dagny: Of course they were on time. Dagny should know by now that there was no late or early when Frigga was involved. She nods a little and proceeds.
[7:15:25 PM | Edited 7:16:28 PM] Fate: *As tesla approaches Zeus would throw him a duffle bag.* “Clothes are inside they should fit. but please wait to change” *as you all aproach each of the gods nod at you but it is Frigga who speaks.* "It is a pleasure that you have decided to come. It seams that this meet was intercepted, by the Divinty Division of the Cia. I had hoped they would take longer to get their information on you all but thanks to Dr. Holden they have manged to figure out a way to track potential scions and have them under surveilance. We called you here to give you your orders. And unfortunately we will have to meet somewhere else Tezcatlipoca will let you know where after. But first, You all have made us very proud. Each of you overcoming great turmoils to get here. And for that we all have something for you. " *Each of the gods wave their hands over the alter as boxes and other items begin to manifest themselves, each taking and approaching their respective children. Zeus approaches first. “Unfortunately my Grandson was unable to recover your other items when he and Bridgette rescued you. So here you go.” *he hands Tesla an old addidas box, inside his goggles and gloves. Tezcatlipoca hands Patli, a runed carved bow and a ceremonial dagger, Frigga hands Dagny a small jewlery box with an earing inside.*
[7:15:59 PM] Fate: *The Dagda Approaches Teagan with two boxes, he hands the first to her. the second he keeps close to him, it seems to be moving*
[7:17:02 PM] Tesla: The Doctor pulls on the gloves and goggles. “Finally. But... I never developed technology to track supernaturals. That was... a daydream, vaporware! As were the concepts for those particle cannons!”
[7:17:52 PM] Teagan: Narrows one eye and peers up at her da, her lips purse and she glances at the moving box. “Lunch?” she questions with a smirk before opening the box to satisfy her curiousity, the blackthorn walking stick under her arm.
[7:18:08 PM] Fate: *Zeus looks to his son.* “Did it ever occur to you why you were locked up over a year. We still dont know half of what you created for them yet.”
[7:19:28 PM] Fate: *inside teagans box are two skelatal bracelet and ring combinations made of silver and adorned with rubies. The Dagda then offers you the Second box attempting to keep it still.*
[7:21:01 PM] Teagan: Arches her brows “ooh super sweet” because they’re seriously styling. She puts the bracelets on before tucking the box in her large bag and then wiggles her fingers faintly. “Hmmn” she tilts her head. “uh. is this a test. something to bite my face off?” she questions as she accepts the box.
[7:21:30 PM] Tesla: "Damnation, this only compounds my complaint! You have dragged me into a scenario in which my abilities have only augmented a war I wanted nothing to do with!’
[7:21:47 PM] Patli: Patli takes the knife and attaches the sheathe to his belt, then takes and inspects the bow with a slow grin.
[7:22:18 PM] Dagny: Dagny opens the jewelry box, then looks up at Frigga as she sees the earring. “I... thanks.” She proceeds to clip it onto her ear, beside her other, much simpler earring. Feeling the chain swing as she turns her head will take a little getting used to.
[7:23:41 PM] Dagny: “How does it look?” asks Dagny tentatively, unsure if that’s a proper question to ask a goddess.
[7:23:51 PM] Dagny: A grandmother, sure, but a goddess?
[7:24:45 PM] Fate: *As teagan takes the box the lid flies off and out runs a http://www.ct.gov/deep/lib/deep/wildlife/images/nongame/amphibian_reptile_book/salamanders/bluespottedsalamandercomplex.jpg Black and blue spotted salamander jumps out and begins to run circles around Teagan he speaks in plain english and freakishly loud* “HELLO HELLO HELLO!!!!!.” *The salamander begins to climb up Teagans leg.* My name is Luna, Dragon extrodinair and I will be your guardian. EVIL BEWARE!!!" *The salamnder growls a small cute growl*
[7:25:46 PM] Fate: *Frigg smiles* “It looks Beautiful my dear. Now if you would I have something else for you... .But for your eyes only.” *She begins to head outside*
[7:26:26 PM] Fate: *The Dagda looks at Teagan* “A dragon as promised.” He returns to stand near the Altar not as talkative as he was the other night*
[7:26:47 PM] Tesla: Tesla scowls so aghastly his face takes on almost froglike aspects.
[7:26:57 PM] Teagan: Teagan blinks a few times and then looks down at her leg. “You’re far to adorable to be frightening to evil little guy. or girl?” she smirks softly and bends to hold her hand out for the creature. “Ah. The Dagda. this. isn’t a dragon, it’s cute though” smiles.
[7:28:06 PM] Dagny: Dagny can’t help herself. The little dragon knew how to draw attention. She hides a smile behind her hand, stifling herself before she could break out into an ‘Awwwww.’ Quickly she composes herself and follows Frigg outside.
[7:28:16 PM] Fate: *Luna looks at Teagan* “NOT A DRAGON!!! Girl you just dont know... Look!” *He takes a deep breath and as he exhales the cutest smallest ball of green fire burst from his mouth* “SEE!!! DRAGON!!” *Luna stands up and begins to dance on Teagans shoulder*
*Dagny and Frigga*
[2/15/2014 7:31:02 PM] Syprix Rushan: *As Frigga leads you around the corner she turns to you tears in her eyes* “My dear... I do have one last gift for you. But I could not let the others see what giving it to you does to me. I gave it to your father. When he became a Scion.” *She hands you a clothed covered item*
[2/15/2014 7:33:13 PM] Nut Meg: "My... " Dagny trails off, looking from the item to Frigga and back to the item, and then receives it gently, uncovering it almost with a sense of reverence.
[2/15/2014 7:33:47 PM] Syprix Rushan: *inside a black and blue studded leather driving glove, one you have seen before*
[2/15/2014 7:38:38 PM] Nut Meg: Recognition overcomes Dagny as she strokes the worn leather with two of her fingers. It was from that fateful night she left Newfoundland. "Josef... " That man was her father? It made so much sense that Dagny suddenly felt a little dense. But if Frigga was giving this to her, saying she ‘could not let the others see what giving it did’ to her then that meant... she looks up at the goddess. "So if this is mine, then he’s... my father’s... " Her mouth goes dry as she searches Frigga’s expression.
[2/15/2014 7:39:54 PM] Syprix Rushan: *She nods* “That he is... .And he lost his way, as many scions have. Im hoping the relic can still bring some hope to this world... in you.”
[2/15/2014 7:47:07 PM] Nut Meg: Dagny closes her eyes and takes a couple deep breaths, pushing back against her thoughts. She had edged too close to touching a wound that was still all too fresh. A wound that Dagny was not certain would turn into a scar. At least there were people around. It was a lot easier for her to keep herself steady when she wasn’t alone. “I’m sorry,” she murmurs. With that Dagny slides it on over her hand. “He has big hands,” she comments, trying to distract herself, to lighten the mood a little. But that quickly fades. “I guess it’s a futile exercise to ask ’Why me... ’ But I have to be honest, I have no idea how I can begin to help.” She looks at Frigga, beseechingly, for some guidance.
[2/15/2014 7:49:40 PM | Removed 7:53:10 PM] Nut Meg: This message has been removed.
[2/15/2014 7:51:17 PM] Syprix Rushan: “Why you... .I will not lie my child. Because there are noone else. The 5 of you are it. The last Scions to be created before the end of the war is upon us. If you all do not help put a stop to whats going on on Terra we will lose. We are spread to thin. Our Demigods are needed on the overworlds and titan realms and the remaining Pantheons are attempting to hold off Titan attacks at our gates. If we can not find a team that can aid us... we will lose this war... And everyone will die, God and human alike.”
[2/15/2014 7:57:34 PM] Nut Meg: After she slips the glove over her hand, her emotions seem to still and cool in place from the center out, instead of rippling like a pond every time the smallest drop enters it. There’s calmness there, a quiet cap of clarity that covers everything, holding it back from splashing out or flooding. It’s refreshing, and absolutely needed after these rough couple of months spent being left alone with herself. Her beseeching expression fades into certainty. “Then I will do my best to ensure that doesn’t happen.”
[2/15/2014 7:59:55 PM] Syprix Rushan: *Frigga smiles and whipes the tears from her eyes and embraces you in a hug* “I know you will child great things are in your future. Come we must go back.” *she escorts you back inside*
[2/15/2014 8:05:39 PM | Edited 8:07:30 PM] Nut Meg: Dagny returns the hug. The warmth of the gesture nearly melts the still-thin covering of ice but at least Dagny knows she at last has some measure of control. She follows her grandmother.
[7:28:18 PM] Tesla: “... back to the matter at hand. You have put a lab scientist on the front line of a war between gods, men and monsters. My lab is most likely under enemy control, if not rubbled, and I am no more of a threat than that of your average subway whore’s shove towards the third rail.”
[7:28:54 PM] Tesla: “I fail to see how I can avail -any- side at this time.”
[7:29:22 PM] Kent: Kent had way too tough of a time keeping a straight face at seeing that salamander... it was too damn adorable...
[7:29:44 PM] Patli: Patli tests the draw of the bow with appreciation as the others chat.
[7:29:44 PM] Fate: *Zeus looks at Tesla* “And yet here you are. The last Hope My seed has to offer. With the aide of these others you will find your purpose in this war. Im not asking you to kill every evil thing that goes bump in the night. Im asking you help find a solution to help end this war.”
[7:30:39 PM] Tesla: “Here’s my first spitball draft then. Make up with Prometheus, enlist his aid, and bribe humanity with unlimited electricity, food and robotic labor.”
[7:30:46 PM] Teagan: Teagan gives a little meep glad her hair doesn’t catch. “Ahha a dragon indeed.” she allows with a grin, reaching over to rub the slimey little critter under the chin.
[7:31:28 PM] Tesla: “Once they are on your side, use Prometheus as a negotiation stance with the Titans that survive.”
[7:32:02 PM] Tesla: “As for the quasi-Titans the other pantheons face... I am too uneducated on the specifics to do more than speculate.”
[7:32:33 PM] Fate: *Zeus chuckles* “Not all myths are fact boy. Prometheus did not try to aide humanity by giving them fire. He tried to destroy you with it.”
[7:33:11 PM] Tesla: Tesla becomes utterly deadpan. “Not all myths are fact... said Zeus.”
[7:34:09 PM] Tesla: He cracks his knuckles. “Then =you= do it. You’re the slayer of Cronus. Prometheus stole the fire of technology from -your- halls.”
[7:34:40 PM] Tesla: “God of Lightning, create a power grid that runs on... stormclouds and divine lightning.”
[7:35:29 PM] Tesla: “If you can turn a woman into a swan or a constellation of stars, surely you can make a generator and some decent batteries.”
[7:36:16 PM] Tesla: “For -literal gods’ sakes-, what this world needs isn’t war... it’s infrastructure!”
[7:37:40 PM] Fate: *Zeus shakes his head* "Do you have any idea how hard it is to kill a Titan? There are entire Pantheons who are dead because of a few Titans. The Kami, The Deava to name a couple. Killing a Titan takes the strength of many. But we are losing. We kill some but they are killing us far more effiecently. If you truly believe you can bring infrastructure do it. The Titans want to turn humanity into cattle once more. We need to end this one way or another. If you feel there is another way find it. Cause Fighting is only drawing it out. "
[7:38:25 PM] Tesla: “... so be it.”
[7:38:34 PM] Fate: *Tezcatlipoca looks to Patli* “Weapons for a true hunter. I hope they will serve you well.”
[7:38:55 PM] Fate: *Zeus shakes his head and walks away joining the Dagda muttering as he does*
[7:39:17 PM | Edited 7:39:45 PM] Patli: “They are beautiful. I hope they are thirsty.”
[7:40:47 PM] Fate: “The thirst comes from the hunter, not the weapon the only provide the means in which to drink.” *Tezcatlipoca too walks away and joins the others by the Altar*
[7:40:56 PM] Tesla: "First things first... those combatants that came at us... did any carrying those energy weapons fall? Can we get one to study? Perhaps I can utilize it... "
[7:41:15 PM] Patli: Patli just grins. Thirsty they shall be, then.
[7:41:36 PM] Patli: Patli turns at Tesla’s words, handing him the gun he recovered.
[7:41:47 PM] Fate: *Anubis who stood by the altar the entire time comes to Khent with two boxes he hands Khent the first* “I hope you have had time to think about what has happened. I hope these will aid you.”
[7:42:46 PM] Fate: *Anubis turns to Tesla* “We have one if you wish to take a look upstairs office at the top of the stairs black container”
[7:43:46 PM] Tesla: “Definately. If I’m to end this war, we’ll need to be on the same footing or better than our opponents, and if this came from my brainwashed imagination, perhaps I can reverse-engineer it.”
[7:44:52 PM] Tesla: Tesla takes Patli’s offered copy, and looks to Anubis. “Call me if more chaos breaks out.” With that, he heads upstairs, to begin trying to understand these bastard children of his fevered, thought-raped mind.
[7:45:57 PM] Fate: *the gun Patli has is an ordinary M16*
[7:46:55 PM] Tesla: Oh, he’d wave that off then. It’s the particle cannons that matter.
[7:48:02 PM] Kent: Kent nods reverently. "I have thought about it... I have thought of nothing but that... the situation could not leave my mind if I could even pluck it from my very brain... " He takes a deep breath. "Looking back at all the cases I’ve taken... I’ve done much in thinking of the what... never the why... which is now my primary focus. The why... the most important question, unanswered by so many... never to be answered again... " He looks at his father with a determined look. “I plan to correct that flawed part of myself, with you as my witness to the promise I make.”He’d see the pair of boxes that his father had, taking the first one and opening it up.
[7:58:49 PM] Fate: *As Khent opens the first box he would notice two fully automatic modified Glocks with extended clips. But as he would reach for them they would repel him, Anubis looking at you, then at the weapons* “I had feared this... They do not belive you are ready. Repeat and Offender must know that they will be used for the right reason. They feel you do not yet possess that skill.” *He takes the box back and Hands you the other.* "Jury and executioner. Weapons that may not be used together. But share a purpose. They will aide in helping you to make your desicions. Choose wrong... And they will retaliate.*
[8:05:47 PM] Kent: Kent’s hand would jump back from the open box, acking as he felt something sting him... hearing the explanation from his father, and nods in acceptance. “I understand.” He then sees what’s inside the second box, reaching tenatively and slowly for these particular guns... not feeling any sharp stings, he’d grasp them both, feeling the weight of each one... “Desert Eagle and Peacemaker... I have to assume the Peacemaker is Executioner, and the Desert Eagle is Jury.” He bows to the God. “You humble me to offer me such powerful gifts, father. Even after the book you gave me.”
[8:11:37 PM] Tesla: From upstairs, a loud, emphatic
can be heard. Also something metal being thrown and clanging with great force.
[8:12:29 PM] Fate: *Anubis smiles as you take your weapons and too joins the others as Frigga and Dagny enter. Frigga yells upstairs. “CHILD!! please come down and play with your toys later we have much to discuss.”
[8:13:12 PM] Kent: Kent would suddenly turn to face the direction of which that sound came from... that... scientist from before... what was going on, he wondered.
[8:13:21 PM] Tesla: Tesla storms to the closest line of sight. “They stole my technology, my dream project, the cure for fossil fuel addiction... AND TURNED IT INTO A GUN!”
[8:13:39 PM] Tesla: He is -fuming-, trembling with rage.
[8:14:53 PM] Tesla: “Man portable plasmatic fusion power! Enough energy to run a car cross country, a plane around the world! AND THEY USE IT TO KILL!”
[8:16:29 PM] Tesla: "The bastards... " With those words... the facade of Doctor Tesla cracks, and John Haldon, electrophysicist, man of vision, slumps to his knees...
[8:16:30 PM] Fate: *Frigga turns to Tesla and speaks her words odly soothing (CALM THE SAVAGE)* “Please child Now is not the time for anger, you and your new team must aid in making Terra safe. so that the others can keep the other worlds safe as we gods keep our homes safe.”
[8:17:07 PM] Patli: Patli shrugs. “Then use it to kill them right back?”
[8:17:35 PM] Dagny: Dagny enters, standing a little straighter than she was before. Though she wasn’t overtly nervous or unstable before, she seems a lot steadier now. Calm. Cool. Collected. An air of control she didn’t have before. A studded black-and-blue fingerless driving glove covers her right hand now.
[8:18:14 PM] Tesla: “You don’t understand... there’s enough power there to make a city’s worth of power in a generator the size of a backpack... we could end war... end struggles for resources... and instead of using it for humanities’ benefit... they’ve weaponized it... made it one more goddamned gun.”
[8:18:46 PM] Tesla: He staggers to his feet, his composure returning swiftly as Frigga’s words wash over him.
[8:19:16 PM] Tesla: “Now I know how Oppenheimer felt.”
[8:20:37 PM] Patli: “Yeah, sounds like a handy gun. Why not use it? Then you make your power plant on your own.”
[8:21:26 PM] Fate: *Frigga looks to Tesla* “I understand child.But you must understand It is more than humanity at stake here. They could end all human wars with your creation. But how does that help them against Titanspawn? Or rouge Scions who feel they have nowhere to turn? You may not like what they have created. But they are only trying to preserve their way of life. As are we. The Titans want blood shed. If the gods could have killed them all before we wouldnt have had to imprison them. Your drive now... .Needs to go beyond that of Humanity, you must use this fire and find a way to end this war. Then you can bring hope to the human race.”
[8:22:03 PM] Tesla: "I can’t fire it, they’ve used every biometric sensor I can think of to lock it against firing and tampering, not to mention rigging it to self destruct, shutting down the magnetic fusion bottle and engulfing the area in solar fire... "
[8:22:59 PM] Tesla: He looks at Frigga. “You’re right. Of course you’re right.”
[8:23:02 PM] Kent: Kent would go to the Scientist and place a hand on his shoulder. “If you had a hand in creating this... then I have faith you’ll find a way to use it... someday.”
[8:27:40 PM] Teagan: Teagan glances over at the defeated science guy, a little frown on her features. That had to suck. she felt for him really. Still nothing to be done for it now. Not like anyone could go back in time or they would have already no doubt. Catching sight of Dagny she walks over and picks up her newly gloved hand. “Stylin” she notes before releasing the appendage.
[8:29:37 PM] Tesla: “This is the fault of blindness, the blindness that has perpetually plagued mankind. Brother against brother, master versus slave, nation versus nation... never seeing the truth of humanity’s oneness. There are Scions, men and monsters all who need a way to do right... a cause... a movement. A way to throw down their weapons, and pick up a wrench and make the world better.”
[8:29:49 PM] Tesla: His voice is regaining it’s previous depth and bravado now...
[8:30:04 PM] Tesla: “And I will lead that movement.”
[8:30:49 PM] Tesla: “And like any great conductor, I will use each intrument to it’s fullest value, to create the vision I can see.”
[8:31:00 PM] Tesla: “And cure this ignorant blindness.”
[8:31:15 PM] Tesla: He snaps down the goggles. “Let’s get started, shall we?”
[8:32:22 PM] Patli: “So, did someone put down that Silvenar or whatever his name was? Or do we still need to get rid of him?”
[8:32:35 PM] Dagny: Dagny assesses each of her... well, now they were her team members. The goggled scientist wearing underwear that may not be his, Kent, Teagan, and the shady fellow. She’s broken out of her contemplation by Teagan, and smirks a little. “Apparently the Aesir have an eye for fashion.” Dagny looks at the little “dragon,” venturing to scratch under its chin. “Too cute.” But as the scientist gains momentum in his speech, Dagny looks to him. A fine sentiment, she thinks. And leaves it at that. They would have to go about it differently.
[8:33:34 PM] Fate: *Frigga joins the others and tries to get everyones attention* "I know this is all a bit troubling, You are not all Patli, who seems to revel in all of this, Or Khent who seeks to find the truth in the mystery. You have your own gifts, your own desires But we must ask you to put them aside. To work together. Your government have stolent relics from previous scions. And since our reserves are dwindling and you can all use the aide. We have decided that you will be tasked with the recovery of these items. We know the first is here in New York. " *Frigga sighs* “However it is on the Island of Manhattan” *as she says the words you all understand her sigh. Manhattan was cleared of all civilians and turned into a giant military instalation the entire islan is one big military base.* “We are currently tracking the others but the first is a Chalice... Held by my son Josef, used in his ritual to create his army. When he was... neutralized they took it, in the hopes that the power it held could be used for them. Luckily for them it has no real power.” *She looks to Dagny* “The power was in his blood. You may wonder why should you help, why should you help get something that only will aide Dagny. Well Cause im sure you may want her help when we discover where the items for each of you are being held. She will need your aide. As you will need hers in the future. We will not force you to take this mission. But we hope you can see how the ones who saved you today did so by working together. I hope you can all learn to do the same.” *She places an envelope on the altar* "Now please umongst yourself choose someone who will lead and plan your way in. This is your mission and we can not aide you any further. " *with that she smiles a blinding smile, her beauty radiates into your very soul removing your sight for a brief time. However when you all recover they are all gone. You are alone with each other and an altar. And now Two envelopes.*
[8:36:30 PM] Teagan: Teagan glances at Dagny and shrugs “if we’re in this mess together” she then grimaces at the radiant smile and rubs her eyes. “Gah not cool” she grumbles softly as she gives a shake of her head and takes a breath before looking to the others. “Any of you know your way around a military base?” sticking her thumbs in the waistband of her slacks.
[8:37:38 PM] Tesla: “If I’m going to be doing clandestine infiltration... I’m going to need to change clothes. As Doctor Tesla... I stand out a bit.”
[8:38:18 PM] Patli: Patli just nods. “Well, I’ve snuck into military installations before. That Sanderson stood no chance against me, this might not be so bad.”
[8:41:00 PM] Dagny: The jeweled chalice... another one down. Dagny looks briefly to the others. The usual hesitance to lead comes to the fore, in which everyone talks about how there should be a leader but nobody steps forward to actually volunteer. It happened every time there was a group project at her high school. But... clearly this wasn’t high school. She looks to Patli. “How should we begin, then?”
[8:42:34 PM] Tesla: “Perhaps I can acquire some manner of intelligence on the base. Aerial photography, or maps. Assuming Google Earth wasn’t taken down during my incarceration in that mind-gulag. Excuse me.”
[8:42:53 PM] Tesla: Tesla heads off to a corner of the warehouse with box of clothes in hand.
[8:47:32 PM | Edited 8:48:24 PM] Dagny: Noticing that no one’s taking the envelopes, Dagny sighs and steps forward to retrieve them. She knows from experience that they are exceedingly useful.
[8:48:16 PM] Patli: :D
[8:48:26 PM] Tesla: Tesla steps out of the back shadows, dressed in his usual off-stage attire over http://files.abovetopsecret.com/files/8796d18209c87d3d.jpg. “Much better.”
[8:48:34 PM] Fate: *The two envelopes one a large fully packed manilla envelope and a smaller white one*
[8:50:14 PM] Patli: Patli heads over to check the envelopes.
[8:50:37 PM] Dagny: Dagny tucks the white envelope behind the manila one, between her index and middle finger. Everyone knew that the most important documents were stored in manila envelopes. She opens it up.
[8:51:42 PM] Tesla: Tesla approaches Dagny and Patli. “I have been curious as to the contents of those. False identities? Tactical intelligence?”
[8:52:01 PM] Patli: Patli opens the other one.
[8:52:32 PM] Tesla: “Pictures of Frigga in a compromising situation?”
[8:53:07 PM] Tesla: “Or, more likely and to my disappointment, my father Zeus in a compromising situation?”
[8:54:17 PM] Dagny: “Of all things, let’s hope they aren’t pictures of /you/ in a compromising situation.” Dagny offers Tesla a little smile to indicate the good nature of her ribbing.
[8:54:57 PM] Tesla: “Those would be more difficult to come by... assuming the nurses at the mind-gulag weren’t too grabby.”
[8:55:10 PM] Dagny: “Says the fellow who’s wearing someone else’s underwear.”
[8:55:42 PM] Tesla: “No longer! Prisoner issue briefs have been replaced with fine satin boxers. As befits a man of my stature.”
[8:55:56 PM] Fate: *inside you would find satelite photos of the island, guard rotations schedules, and close up of three locations one located in soho, the other in the center of timesquare and the last in harlem each with an address and written potential location. Also inside will be fake ID badges each with your picture with a note paperclipped to them that states “These will not hold up to a scan do everything in your power to prevent them from being scanned.” The last thing inside the manilla envelope are a few documents that after a few moments scanning will detail how a group of military researchers are scheduled to arrive tomorrow at 8am written on the side is a note “My dear dagny have no worries Zack will detain the researchers.”
[8:56:56 PM] Teagan: Has to give it to Dagny that does seem more likely. "Anyway. I’m hoping for intel about the place we’ve got to get into and hopefully out of alive... " smiling faintly “would you look at that.” she examines the sheets of paper detailing the infrustructure and such like.
[8:57:12 PM] Dagny: "It’s good at least one tragedy was cut short... " Dagny trails off as she begins to contemplate the manila envelope’s contents. "Hmm... "
[8:58:08 PM] Patli: “So, what’s in the other one?”
[8:58:56 PM] Dagny: "I get the feeling I’m going to owe Zack a lot of beers by the time all this is over... " Dagny opens up the smaller envelope.
[9:01:03 PM] Teagan: Teagan pokes her tongue out “I bet he’d take another form of gratitude” she taunts with a grin.
[9:02:28 PM] Fate: *inside the smaller envelope it appears that Patli’s Father did come through with a new location for their next meet. There is an address and a letter stating “Patli to let me know when you are ready for us to come back please use the same thing you used to come find me. Once you have completed it I will know and we will meet you at the address listed.” There is an address for a appartment complex in Williamsburg brooklyn and a key card and 6 numbers written on the back of the key card. 8-3-5-1-4-0*
[9:04:34 PM] Dagny: “I’m from Canada, not the deep south,” points out Dagny to Teagan. "Patli... " she glances at the doctor and the shady fellow. “I think this is addressed to one of you two.”
[9:05:05 PM] Tesla: "Patli is not one of my various names... "
[9:05:19 PM] Teagan: Snirks softly at that “Canukistan, cool” leaning over curiously to see what the other envelope holds.
[9:05:48 PM] Patli: Patli takes the envelope and looks at it curiously.
[9:05:55 PM] Patli: “Yes, that’d be me.”
[9:08:09 PM] Dagny: “Not so much anymore. Unless you think Titanspawn are cool,” Dagny says. “Nice to meet you, Patli. I don’t know if you caught it before, but I’m Dagny.” She glances at the doctor. “Don’t think I caught your name either.”
[9:09:25 PM] Patli: “Looks like directions on how to report back upon success.”
[9:12:16 PM] Teagan: She nods her head slightly “Good to know”
[9:12:35 PM] Dagny: “That’s handy,” says Dagny mildly, just as Teagan said her two bits.
[9:13:10 PM] Tesla: “Personally, we’re all Titanspawn when we get down to it. The gods of Olympus are the literal spawn of the Titans.”
[9:13:49 PM] Tesla: “It’s all a matter of drawn lines and factions and old grudges. The same old story through infinite repeated loops.”
[9:17:23 PM] Tesla: “And as for my name, it -was- Professor John Holden, Doctor of Applied Electrophysics. Now... I go by my old stage name from my days as a rabble-rousing musician and counterculture icon... Doctor Samuel Colridge Tesla.”
[9:19:36 PM] Patli: “Colridge? Sounds very old timey.”
[9:19:58 PM] Dagny: Dagny glances at Tesla. “I’ll try telling that to the next fenris wolf I see, then, next time I visit,” she says dryly. “Nice to meet you, Tesla.” This statement is not so dry. She spreads out the intel on the altar so that everyone can get a better look at it. “So... it looks like we’ll be... infiltrating.” She pauses, recalling how Officer O’Brien had managed to successfully do so at the checkpoint. She wondered how easy it really was. “Better than a head-on assault, I guess.”
[9:21:03 PM] Tesla: “Samuel Taylor Coleridge was a English poet, critic and philosopher, a contemporary of Wordsworth, and one of the original Romantics. A name well stolen, in my opinion.”
[9:23:19 PM] Tesla: "Hm. Perhaps I could create a distraction... we do have a micro hydrogen-bomb upstairs... "
[9:23:58 PM] Patli: “I am experienced at infiltrating. I could silence the guards and then let the rest of you in.”
[9:29:43 PM] Dagny: Dagny glances at Patli, trying to get a read on him, a little iffy on the way he said ‘silence’. Instead of pondering overmuch on his meaning, she says, “That takes too much time. And after a while the silence could draw unwanted attention. We should do that if we have no other choice. Preferably on the way out, if at all.” She pauses, regarding the badges. “I think we should just try to fit in as much as we can.” At that she glances briefly at Tesla. “For as long as we can.”
[9:31:13 PM] Tesla: “What is the time frame for this mission? Is there time to go get some civilian clothes?”
[9:31:53 PM] Patli: “I don’t think a time frame was mentioned.”
[9:34:36 PM] Dagny: Dagny shakes her head, still not used to the way the ear cuff chain jingles slightly. “We shouldn’t waste too much time but I think getting... err... civilian clothes is a good idea.”
[9:35:14 PM] Patli: “And your own underwear.”
[9:38:10 PM] Dagny: Dagny points at a particular part of the documentation. “8 AM, military researchers coming to Manhattan. We might want to be in and out before then. Unless that’s the only time this chalice won’t be under lockdown.” She pauses. “I don’t exactly know how military bases work.” She looks at Patli for a different opinion.
[9:39:47 PM] Patli: Patli shrugs. "I don’t know for sure either, but it seems like security might be higher, not lower, during such a visit. "
[9:40:58 PM] Dagny: She nods. “That makes sense. And there’s no telling how long that will last. So before 8 AM sounds like our best bet.”
[5:59:08 PM] Tesla: “We have at our disposal a few automatic SWAT-style rifles and a biosignature-locked plasma rifle I could rig as a bomb.”
[5:59:15 PM | Edited 5:59:28 PM] Patli: “Well I seriously doubt the Harlem location will have it. But it might also be the easiest one to scout and determine for sure?”
[6:00:10 PM | Edited 6:00:20 PM] Patli: “Anyway, we need to scout the 3 locations until we know for sure which one has the item, and then go in disguised. It would look bad if the ‘researchers’ showed up at the wrong place.”
[6:00:58 PM] Tesla: “Are any of you superhumanly persuasive, alluring, or possibly psychic?”
[6:01:12 PM] Patli: Patli shakes his head.
[6:01:37 PM] Tesla: “Possessed of powers of stealth or invisibility perhaps?”
[6:01:56 PM] Patli: “Not quite, but stealth is my wheelhouse.”
[6:01:59 PM] Kent: “I haven’t exactly had much in the way of training…”
[6:02:04 PM] Patli: “Not quite invisible, I mean.”
[6:02:52 PM] Patli: “I can also temporarily redirect people, but not in any lasting manner.”
[6:02:55 PM | Edited 6:03:11 PM] Tesla: “Well, electricity is in mine. And if things go all to hell, may I suggest I and someone more combat-capable strike the compound’s power generation capabilities?”
[6:03:14 PM] Patli: “I can help with that, if stealth fails.”
[6:03:41 PM] Dagny: Dagny tentatively raises her hand. “I’ve noticed people tend to believe what I say and listen to my commands.” She pauses and adds, “Apparently harpies do too.”
[6:03:58 PM] Tesla: “Now, perhaps I’m late to the conference, but it would be very useful for me to know our specific objective.”
[6:04:52 PM] Kent: “Specific objective: a relic of the Gods is being housed in one of three locations. We are to find which location, and attempt to take the relic back.”
[6:04:58 PM] Patli: “I believe we’re recovering one or more Relics, if I recall properly.”
[6:05:19 PM] Tesla: “I see. And the psychic gulag where I was being brainwashed may be one of these target locations?”
[6:05:43 PM] Patli: “You’d have to tell us.”
[6:05:57 PM] Dagny: “A chalice,” Dagny adds to Patli’s statment as to the relics. “My father’s chalice.”
[6:06:20 PM] Tesla: “I am sure it was near the New York area. But, I trust I’ll know it when I see it.”
[6:06:20 PM] Patli: “I thought it was your mother that was the deity?”
[6:06:51 PM] Patli: “Well, Doc, all 3 potential sites are in Manhattan. Where was your prison?”
[6:07:51 PM] Dagny: Dagny shakes her head. “Frigga’s my grandmother. My father’s mother.”
[6:08:32 PM] Tesla: “My prison was a psychic construct apparently being maintained on my unconscious form strapped into some sort of amalgamation of an electric chair, a dentist’s appliance and an interrogation restraint. The building in which the abomination resides is as of my last view of it, possessed of several smoking craters from the group that extracted me.”
[6:08:55 PM] Patli: “Oh, who is your father, then?”
[6:09:22 PM] Tesla: “Beyond that, I was shuttled like luggage from the area, only semi-conscious until being roughly deposited near a motel.”
[6:10:31 PM] Tesla: “A hotel I can admit to recalling was in Brooklyn.”
[6:10:36 PM] Tesla: “Perhaps that is our lead.”
[6:11:12 PM] Patli: Patli shrugs.
[6:14:30 PM] Patli: “I’d highly doubt it. Its in Manhattan.”
[6:14:45 PM] Patli: “But Soho isn’t far from there…”
[6:15:36 PM] Tesla: “Of the three…it seems Soho would be the most likely.”
[6:16:19 PM] Dagny: For a moment, Dagny hesitates. Then she says, “My father is Josef Kron. From what I understand he’s been… well, I’m not sure. I think he’s still alive.” She straightens. “There’s little reason to believe he’s being detained at one of these sites, but if he is… I think if we rescued him he’d make a… valuable ally.” She considers for another moment, then adds, “If we can find someone named Elliot Thompson… that would be great too.” The latter part of the statement is spoken a little lamely, less like a dignified young Scion of Frigga and more like a slightly insecure teenager.
[6:16:42 PM] Patli: “Plus, even if we took a systematic approach of searching each location as we went… if we began at the south, and moved north, Soho would be first, anyway.”
[6:17:02 PM] Patli: “Kron? Never heard of him. Another Scion, then, not a god?”
[6:17:10 PM] Dagny: Dagny nods.
[6:18:13 PM] Tesla: “While I don’t know you, or your father, miss, I can tell you that such a stay is likely one we should extract him from. If not for his sake, for the world’s.” He looks over at the plasma rifle. “My own imprisonment has raped my ethics and stolen my very knowledge and imagination to make the world a fouler place. I should not wish that on anyone.”
[6:20:02 PM] Patli: “Such imprisonment is an affront to the freedom all thinking beings deserve.”
[6:20:30 PM] Dagny: At this Dagny nods again, except more firmly, a little bolstered by the mad scientist’s words. “We should be careful, though. My grandmother told me only that he ‘lost his way.’ That could mean he’s sided with the government… or the Titanspawn.”
[6:20:39 PM] Tesla: "Indeed. “Freedom is the right of all sentient beings,” and all that."
[6:21:07 PM] Tesla: “I care little for sides, miss, only whether someone is on my side at the given moment.”
[6:21:45 PM] Tesla: “And I can assure you that against my captors, against the perpetrators of that…abomination, I am most assuredly on yours.”
[6:22:17 PM] Teagan: Stands back quietly eyeing the group though she gives a faint snort to their philosophy and crosses her arms over her chest.
[6:23:28 PM] Dagny: “That’s an admirable amount of trust, Mr. err… Tesla, was it? But, like it or not, these sides still exist and if we don’t worry about them sooner… well, we’ll worry about them later. Maybe even too late.” She pauses. “But it’s good to know we’re in agreement for now, at least.”
[6:23:41 PM] Patli: Patli frowns. “My side was firmly chosen when one of the factions began to shoot at me with no warning or alternative given. They hunted me, not knowing that my father is THE Hunter.”
[6:24:13 PM] Patli: “And so I hunted their leader right back. What was his name again?”
[6:24:18 PM] Tesla: “Tesla will do. And it is not trust, miss. It is a shared enemy.”
[6:24:49 PM] Tesla: “Surely, the proverb in question is too common to need repeating.”
[6:27:20 PM] Teagan: Teagan pushes her fingers back through her hair and then with one arm still across her chest she cups the back of her neck. “OK I was a bit dazed, you all picked a location to poke around at? How’d you arrive at that?” she questions more curious than anything at the moment.
[6:28:51 PM] Dagny: Dagny shifts her lower jaw a little in hesitation as the two men speak. A little short-sighted, but then again it was extremely difficult to not think beyond their current mission. Momentarily she’s distracted by Teagan’s question. She turns to the redhead and says, “We’re going to try to scout all three locations, from the southernmost up, which means we’ll be starting in Soho.”
[6:29:25 PM] Patli: “Soho is the nearest location to Brooklyn, where Doc here was imprisoned, and they clearly have a research facility. So, Soho should be scouted first.”
[6:29:33 PM] Tesla: “In my rescuers’ rush to divest themselves of me, I was given a moment to recover at a motel in Brooklyn. Hm. Now that I consider it…”
[6:29:49 PM] Tesla: He begins thinking back, plotting precise travel times, vectors of ascent and descent…
[6:30:01 PM] Tesla: (Math Genius, Perfect Memory)
[6:30:10 PM] Tesla: “I require a map.”
[6:30:49 PM] Tesla: He looks around and sees no one leaping up to get him one or even fishing out a smartphone or laptop.
[6:30:52 PM] Teagan: Pursing her lips she holds out her cell phone with map quest up. “Here ya go Frankenstien”
[6:31:13 PM] Tesla: “Ah, perfect, thank you.” He looks over it carefully.
[6:31:43 PM] Tesla: “My memories are beginning to reassert themselves…numbers of streets leapt over, angles at which we intersected them…”
[6:32:19 PM] Teagan: Gives a bit of a nod and sets one hand on her hip the other holding the blackthorn club that she raps lightly on her thigh.
[6:32:44 PM] Tesla: He stops and looks at the tiny map with great interest. "There. “Queens”. That is the location of the facility I was held at."
[6:33:07 PM] Tesla: “Not on that island at all.”
[6:33:14 PM] Teagan: "This scouting thing just sounds.. I don’t man.. they really want us in a box or a cage.. "
[6:33:43 PM] Kent: “Or working strictly for them…” Kent added.
[6:33:51 PM] Tesla: “Give or take a street, I didn’t have my goggles.”
[6:34:34 PM] Patli: Patli glances over, and nods. “I know that spot. That’s where the fool that hunted me met his end. One one of his lackey’s knives.”
[6:34:59 PM] Dagny: Dagny looks dubiously at Tesla. “That seems out of our way, Mr. Tesla. And maybe beyond what little resources we have.”
[6:35:04 PM] Patli: *on one
[6:35:44 PM] Tesla: “I seem to recall the duo’s conversation including mentioning someone having been killed. Colonel Sanders? No…”
[6:35:48 PM] Tesla: “Sanderson.”
[6:36:17 PM] Tesla: “I recall being vaguely amused by the similarity and imagining him in Southern finery with white beard and mustache.”
[6:36:32 PM] Teagan: Snorts softly “the ghetto would be devistated”
[6:36:42 PM] Patli: “Yes. Sanderson, that’s the one I cut open.”
[6:37:07 PM] Tesla: He hands the cell phone back to the woman who shared it with him. “So, you know the location, and it is not one of our current targets?”
[6:37:33 PM] Teagan: Accepting her phone back she glances down at it and then pockets it.
[6:38:03 PM] Patli: “Nope, thats outside of Manhattan. I think we’re sticking with Plan A.”
[6:38:04 PM] Dagny: The young woman turns to address Teagan. “Scouting is our best shot. We have to get inside this military base regardless, and it is better to do so cautiously rather than go into it completely blind.”
[6:38:35 PM] Kent: “But there is a problem… how long do we have?”
[6:38:57 PM] Tesla: “Very well, striking at different heads of the same hydra will suit my wrath for the time being.” He raises an eyebrow at that. “I am unsure. May I peruse the documentation?”
[6:39:02 PM] Teagan: Sighs “I mean I agree with ya about not going in like a bunch of looneys I just figure they’re on the look out for people like us.. if not us specifically after today…”
[6:39:41 PM] Patli: “Another idea. If the researchers are being detained, we could get information from them about the location. Perhaps we hide in the middle of Manhattan, and this Zack guy can send us the info one he has them detained and questioned?”
[6:40:07 PM] Dagny: Dagny hands Teagan the fake ID with her information and picture on it. “This should stave off most suspicion. As long as we avoid scanners and make as few waves as possible we should be able to avoid notice.”
[6:40:13 PM] Tesla: “Hm. An interesting approach, catch them outside their fortifications, like bandits on the road.”
[6:40:25 PM] Teagan: Teagan points to Patty “yeah see that’s more like it.. one risk instead of three” pocketing the ID with a murmur of thanks.
[6:40:37 PM] Patli: “Zack is already going to capture them, so that we can pose as them.”
[6:40:53 PM] Kent: “It might not be that easy. The researchers might be needed to show up at precisely 8am, as stated that we’ll need to be there.”
[6:41:11 PM] Patli: “I do believe he’s capturing them BEFORE 8.”
[6:41:13 PM] Kent: “We might not have enough time to interrogate them after capture.”
[6:41:26 PM] Teagan: Scoffs “with all the red tape, goverment guys are used to delays I’m sure of it”
[6:42:21 PM] Teagan: Shrugging she smirks “besides they’re just a bunch of science nerds Zack can say boo and they’ll pee themselves before giving him all the info he wants I bet”
[6:43:13 PM] Tesla: The Doctor raises an eyebrow at that.
[6:43:27 PM] Dagny: Dagny nods at Patli. “I think that might be the best way to go, but we don’t know where they’ll be in the first place.” She then turns to Kent and motions in agreement to Teagan. “Yes, I don’t think showing up a couple minutes late will raise any eyebrows.”
[6:43:35 PM] Teagan: A grin curls her lips, she knows just what she said.
[6:44:49 PM] Kent: “If you think it wise… however, I will be more difficult to be approaching any of these sites. My face is well known in most of New York… hazards of my job.”
[6:45:21 PM] Teagan: Teagan tilts her head to one side.. “I could give ya a black eye if you think that’d help”
[6:45:27 PM] Patli: “Well, can we discuss this with Zack ? Sounds like he knows where they’ll be.”
[6:45:40 PM] Tesla: “And I am sure anyone working on these projects has a chance of identifying me.”
[6:46:18 PM] Dagny: Dagny crosses her arms and opens her mouth to reply but closes it to stifle her smirk at Teagan’s statement. She then speaks, “Judging by the fact that we were ambushed before arriving here, no doubt there are files on all of us.”
[6:46:35 PM] Kent: Kent grins a bit. “A lady with spark… I like it.” He chuckles.
[6:47:10 PM] Patli: “Well, if Frigga is giving us disguises, then clearly she feels its going to help. Or are you guys smarter than the goddess?”
[6:47:21 PM] Teagan: Rolls her eyes .. “make that two black eyes and a broken nose” said mostly to herself before she nods “yeah I’m pretty sure they know all about us down to our underwear size” nodding to Tesla specifally on that one.
[6:47:56 PM] Dagny: Dagny looks at Patli and smiles a bit. “It’s good to know I’m not the only one with a little faith.”
[6:49:09 PM] Patli: Patli shrugs. “I’m just not a person who thinks himself smarter than , you know, THE GODS.”
[6:49:10 PM] Kent: Kent holds back a laugh on the inside, keeping his face rather calm and collected. If this guy played Poker…
[6:49:41 PM] Teagan: “Sort of difficult to have faith in Gods that want -me- to bust stuff up and ya know .. go to war.. it’s really.. not my bag.”
[6:50:27 PM] Kent: “I feel that, in my own way, I’ve been fighting bits and pieces of this war even before I found out I was the son of a God.”
[6:50:33 PM] Dagny: “If they need us to do something, it’s because they’re busy holding off bigger things,” Dagny points out. “It’s a rare person that /wants/ to go to war, but that doesn’t change the fact that, if we don’t fight, we may as well lie down and die.”
[6:51:16 PM] Tesla: “I assume faith wasn’t enough as according to Zeus, I’m the last of his mortal spawn.”
[6:51:24 PM] Teagan: Teagan heaves a great sigh “yeah yeah.. womping on bad guys is better than the alternative” she mumbles as she smacks her thigh a bit harder with the rounded edge of the club
[6:51:45 PM] Patli: “If we ARE going to war, its as commandos, and not the rank and file troops. We’re specialists, not grunts.”
[6:53:26 PM] Tesla: “I’ll continue to trust in my ability to think things through. It was apparently valuable enough for the enemy.”
[6:56:07 PM] Kent: Kent thinks about it a second. “Come to think of it… it would be very helpful if we all knew where everyone’s strengths and weaknesses reside. That way, we may be able to plan and organize much more effectively.”
[6:56:30 PM] Dagny: The young woman squares her shoulders as she attempts to direct the conversation back to the plan. “So how are we to locate Zack? He didn’t exactly leave us with his number.” She sends a slightly amused knowing look to Teagan to forestall any cousin-kissing comments.
[6:57:54 PM] Tesla: “I think the young man has a good idea. Assessing what each of us bring to the table may assist us.”
[6:58:38 PM] Patli: “Nobody has Zack’s number? Well, that plan’s out the window then.”
[6:58:50 PM] Teagan: Grins faintly and holds her hand up palm out. “Ok so let me see if the booty grabber slipped me his number” she snorts, though she does check her pockets just in case. “Would have been nice eh? Though I mean he’s a clever enough fellow?”
[6:58:51 PM] Patli: He nods to the others. “Well, I’ve stated my strengths already.”
[7:01:00 PM] Teagan: She holds up the sheleighle.. “I have.. womping stick..” gestures to Luna “fire leezard” shrug
[7:02:30 PM] Fate: *Luna stands on his back two legs and attempts to do a jig before falling on his back then running up Teagan leg and sit on her shoulder*
[7:03:09 PM] Tesla: "Well, I -was- Doctor John Haldon, inventor, nuclear physicist, chemist, electrical engineer. I was a pioneer in clean energy generation solutions, as well as a musician and social commentator on the side, as “Doctor Tesla”, a mad scientist character I invented originally to launch my music career, but it became a way to get out my message of focusing world attention on the elimination of polluting energy sources, a bully pulpit in front of a webcam. Villainous cackles and assistants in leather nurse outfits, to catch the eye."
[7:04:32 PM] Tesla: “Since my…recruitment by Zeus, I have had little time to analyze my abilities strictly, but if my time in that mind-gulag is any hint, I may have become super-intelligent, as well as immune to electricity and able to survive on raw sunlight.”
[7:04:37 PM] Teagan: Snickers softly at the attempted jig and shakes her head, reaching over she’d pat him lightly. “nice” Her attention flicking to Tesla “right.. I like Frankenstien better.. Frankie.. maybe Tessie if you gotta go that route.”
[7:06:15 PM] Patli: Patli raises an eyebrow. “Frankenstein? Has he been making flesh golems?”
[7:06:40 PM] Tesla: “I relish the comparison, but I work more with power grids than corpses.”
[7:07:08 PM] Teagan: “Hey he coulda been” shrugs “besdies Tesla was the biggest most awsome genius ever.. this guy.. he’s ok.. so far”
[7:09:59 PM] Teagan: SO ok … we need to get ahold of Zack.. hey anyone check that stack of papers for a card or something? I mean it’d be nice if he called us but no telling if he will for sure.. I guess we could go with the scouting plan after all if we can’t manage a way to get the guys attention.. " pause “Dagney.. do some kinda .. Lois Lane danger thing maybe he’s like Superman?”
[7:12:10 PM] Kent: “Well… I am Kent Bahar, Paranormal Private Investigator. I’ve been living in New York for 2 years, for hire by people who wish my services because the government can’t… or scarier, won’t… investigate the absolute truth. I’m not that strong, and I don’t think I am immune to lightning. However, since my father… Anubis… visited me, I have had better reflexes, speed, my visual acuity has been increased and I can even now see in complete darkness. I can also see the souls of the dead, and know if someone is guilty of a specific crime. Among all of that, I am also quite the marksman.”
[7:13:25 PM] Patli: Patli smirks at Kent. “I thought I was the hunter in the dark, and marksman, here.”
[7:13:42 PM] Dagny: She assesses each group member as they enumerate their strengths. “This reminds me of a job interview,” mumbles Dagny once it’s her turn. She sighs. “What are my strengths? I work well with others, I have experience in leadership positions, am an experienced orator, I have a 3.8 gpa, I can think on my feet… and apparently I’m healthier than the healthiest horse, am extremely convincing at times, can give commands that even harpies will obey, I haven’t had to wear so much as a sweater since… since I met my grandmother, and I have prophetic visions. Or… I guess it’s more like prophetic visions happen to me.” She looks over at Teagan. “Sorry, I don’t play the damsel in distress too well.”
[7:14:03 PM] Kent: “I see in the dark… doesn’t mean I can hide well in it. Plus, I prefer to see my opponent when I judge their souls.”
[7:14:26 PM | Edited 7:14:43 PM] Dagny: “Been in too much distress lately anyway,” she adds quietly as an afterthought, her humor fading slightly.
[7:15:01 PM] Patli: “Heh, hopefully this is more honest than job interviews, though.”
[7:17:02 PM] Dagny: Dagny smirks a bit. “Me too. I can’t imagine how having prophetic visions would be helpful at a fro-yo shop.”
[7:17:54 PM] Teagan: Wiggles her fingers “I know exactly what you want on your cone.. before you do!”
[7:18:25 PM] Kent: “If any one person weren’t telling the truth, I could also tell that… though, it’s still difficult for me to achieve that.”
[7:18:42 PM] Dagny: This elicits a laugh from the young woman. “I wish the visions were that direct.”
[7:20:03 PM] Teagan: Smirks faintly and stuffs one hand in her pocket “Yeah sorry I’m not a wealth of talent or anything.. I mean that’s useful here at least .. need a mural though I’m your girl”
[7:21:38 PM] Dagny: “That… fog that you kicked up earlier, during the ambush… that was insanely useful,” Dagny points out.
[7:21:54 PM] Tesla: “Well, we must find the uses we can with what we have, I suppose, unless there’s a GodMart we can pop out to for new powers…”
[7:22:04 PM] Kent: “Indeed. Had you not done so, I fear we would have been in great danger.”
[7:22:55 PM] Teagan: Teagan hums “oh yeah that” looks at the blackthorn “hell if I know how that happened” She turns the thing in her hand and shrugs. “Glad it was useful” Pokes Dagney with the round end of it. “Nope no poofing vanish fog, that’d be pretty cool..”
[7:23:25 PM] Patli: Patli chuckles as Dagney is poked with a stick.
[7:23:35 PM] Teagan: Snickers “God Mart, I’d totally woose out and be a muse or something.”
[7:26:18 PM] Dagny: The talk of prophetic visions has Dagny considering the folding mirror in her pocket still. Just as her hand reaches towards said pocket, she’s poked by Teagan. “Sorry, you aren’t getting rid of me that easily.” She offers a brief smile before redirecting the conversation back to the plan. “So let’s table the Zack idea for now and go back to scouting out each of the areas.” She looks to Patli. “You mentioned you’re… err… sneaky? I’d say you’re a shoe-in for scouting.” She turns to the rest of the group. “But the question is do we split up or scout each area one at a time?”
[7:27:35 PM] Teagan: Glancing around “Pretty sure we got piled together because we need each other.. if you’re gonna have faith in the Gods I’d reckon we stick with their game plan”
[7:28:27 PM] Dagny: Dagny nods in agreement. “Yeah, we’re too new to this to risk splitting up.”
[7:29:04 PM] Patli: Patli nods. “The hunt depends on the prey being unaware, and yes, I was thinking of myself for that job. You folks can help out if things go south.”
[7:29:10 PM] Teagan: “Besides my idea of scouting would be walking up the guard and askin’ if they’ve got a fancy cup for my mojitos”
[7:31:54 PM] Dagny: Teagan’s statement elicits another smirk. “Chalices are more for wine than anything else. You need a collins glass for a mojito.”
[7:32:26 PM] Teagan: Pauses “damn now I want a drink.. anyway when are we going on this little field trip?”
[7:32:44 PM] Dagny: “Once we stop getting distracted and actually pin down a plan.”
[7:35:15 PM] Patli: “I think we already had a plan from the beginning. You guys just keep trying to change it for some reason.”
[7:35:52 PM] Teagan: “So we go to place A and this guy” points at Pat “goes poking around.. if anyone baps his nose the rest of us go in to rescue, that about right?”
[7:36:35 PM] Patli: “Pretty much.”
[7:38:13 PM] Kent: “If you need a second stealth, I COULD be stealthy enough to help… but I would probably get in the way more than help.”
[7:38:45 PM] Dagny: “You have a knack for making things seem a lot less complicated,” Dagny says to Teagan, pairing her observation with a sidelong glance.
[7:39:01 PM] Patli: “Adding more people harms stealth, not helps it.”
[7:39:11 PM] Kent: “Good point…”
[7:40:15 PM] Teagan: Teagan smiles faintly and shrugs “It’s a gift?” poking her tongue out a tiny bit.
[7:44:51 PM] Dagny: Dagny clears her throat. “So, to reiterate one last time… we start by scouting Soho, work our way up to Times Square, and finally to Harlem to search for this chalice. Also I recommend we keep an eye and ear out for persons named Josef Kron and Elliot Thompson. Are we starting at 8 o’ clock sharp, then?”
[7:45:16 PM] Tesla: “Seems there’s not much to add.”
[7:45:19 PM] Fate: (once everyone is ready we can fast forward)
[7:45:26 PM] Patli: (y)
[7:46:38 PM] Teagan: [yeup]
[7:46:41 PM] Dagny: (( Hold on ))
[7:46:45 PM] Dagny: (( One more thing ))
[7:47:01 PM] Dagny: (( Hero’s Herald ))
[7:47:32 PM] Dagny: (( Want me to pose this or do you want to get to the fast forwarding? ))
[7:48:30 PM] Fate: (go ahead)
[8:04:00 PM | Edited 8:04:52 PM] Dagny: As IDs are doled out and the group begins to head out of the warehouse, Dagny trails behind, her eyes glued to the ground in thought. Finally, she stops and says, “Wait.” As each of the group members turn to her, she says, “If Frigga can make prophecy work for her… I should be able to.” She pulls her folding mirror out of her pocket and opens it up. As if she were watching a screen, images flash, reflected in her eyes, but those who look over her shoulder to the mirror see nothing but black depths. “An island of metal. A chalice of jewels. Eyes glowing in the shadows. Four angels stand in a circle. Bright flashes of light, pools of blood.” She then turns to face Tesla directly. Images still flash in her eyes though she is no longer looking directly at the mirror, affecting a kind of eerie thousand-yard stare. From her lips spills a fragmented description of the great deed he is fated to carry out on this mission. She does this for each of the other party members in turn. Then her folding mirror snaps shut, breaking her from her trance. Dagny wavers and nearly collapses, catching herself but tripping over her own feet, which causes the folding mirror to slip from her fingers and clatter to the ground. “Ugh…” She groans, rubbing her temples briefly. “Gods above, I feel like shit.” She stoops unsteadily to pick up her relic and fumbles with it a bit before shoving it back in her pocket. She takes a moment to gather her bearings, takes a deep breath, and then rises. “All right, let’s… let’s go.”
[8:05:17 PM] Patli: “Eyes glowing in the shadows? Sounds like a poor hunter to give away his or her position like that.”
[8:05:40 PM] Teagan: Pauses and blinks a few times before shaking her head “creepy” walking over to give the girl a steadying hand.
[8:11:58 PM] Dagny: Dagny offers a thin smile to Teagan. She looks pale—well, paler than usual, that is—and tired, as if she were coming down with the flu. “Thanks.”
[8:12:25 PM] Patli: Patli grins. “Creepy… you say that like creepy is a bad thing!”
[8:12:48 PM] Tesla: The Doctor ponders the vaguaries of the words. Could mean anything. Best to keep it in one’s back pocket, and not count on it.
[8:13:30 PM] Teagan: Nods slightly “Sure thing..” she’d walk close to the other gal, in case that tire should over take her, a faint frown marring her features.
