    Episode 1 - Charleston: the Holy City

    Post by Gamemaster on Tue 14 Mar 2017 - 23:05

    Date: 22 Apr 30
    Time: 0945
    Location: Medical University of South Carolina

    It was the most beautiful day in Charleston, South Carolina that anyone could remember in recent memory. The sun was shinning and surprisingly not too hot for this time of year. The people in the city carried on like usual, almost completely unaffected by the war. Most citizens were sure there were mutants in the city, but they kept to themselves, the way any group of outsiders should. People in this coastal southern state just couldn't figure out what all the fuse was about.

    Until today...


    "We are live at the Medical University of South Carolina, where researches are claiming that later this week they will unveil their scanner which claims to be to determine if a subject has mutant properties or not. This comes as human/mutant relations are at an all time low, and tensions are high. Dr. Shawn Henderson is with us to talk about the his team and the research they have been doing. Doctor?"

    Troy Hopkins watched a report across the street interview a doctor about mutants. The war was over wasn't it? Why was the government and the common people still trying to strip mutants of their God given rights? He had had enough. This scanner was going to make life worst than hell for him, and his fellow mutants. He started walking towards the reporter...

    Bryan Nicolson (The Pioneer) is rushing around the Medical University trying to find the doctor in charge of this new device. Bryan is down in Charleston from NYC just for this occasion to see whether this device is going to be used for good and how it will affect the current state of affairs.

    John Titor, known better by the mutant-hating community as Chameleon, is on the run after another failed attempt from the humans to capture and research him, is hiding out in James Island County Park.  He decided to go here of all places due the abundance of life and the (somewhat) lack of people around, and to rest after three days of a long retreat.  He is unaware of the proposed mutant tracking device, presently, and is hiding out by a nearby marsh.

    As you walk you notice that a fellow in a black coat walks in front of you a few feet. Something is off about him, and for some reason you are pretty sure he is also a mutant. He seems to be going towards the interview.

    Bryan
    You managed to find a receptionist at the information center who directed you to a door to your left, which she assures you will lead towards the department heading up the mutant research. You are unaware of the interview taking place just outside.

    Zen
    You step out of the car and immediately are more drawn to the man in black than to the actual interview. You have no doubt in your mind that this is a mutant, and you sense malice in him. On closer inspection he seems to be reaching into his jacket. You notice the a handgun is printing (url=http://www.luckygunner.com/lounge/concealed-carry-tips-printing/]here[/url]).

    John
    ...
    You are hiding out in James Island Country Park in the lodging area where people usually camp. Thanks for coming to the party Razz (PS. you didn't need to roll since you were not actually involved in the event.)


    (OCC: Okay, please don't edit your post if you have a dice roll. if there is an issue, just repost. Also, i'm gonna try to leave the actions pretty open, and because Zen may or may not take an immediate action based on what he is seeing, i'll leave it with all of you more or less having choices of some sort to make. DON'T ASK CAN I DO X...JUST FUCKING DO IT...If it turns out you can't do it we will work around it. Act like this is really you and you have the freedom to do whatever. Your stats are just there to show your capabilities, not define what you can do.

    Bryan says thanks then heads over to the door. I open the door cautiously and when inside i look for anyone of importance. I pull out a notepad and paper and prepare to take notes and observations on what i see.

    John is going to hang out by the campground and recover his strength, as he has been running for quite some time from the agents in the MHA. He chooses a cool spot by a nearby oak tree, sits down, and leans his back against it.

    John, hearing Deadlock's newfound information, chuckles under his breath, stating, "Foolish humans, using machines to achieve their goals instead of their own instincts. Pathetic." "Deadlock, we need to get to that device, otherwise our kind will be unable to avoid detection, and to resist the oncoming wrath of the human scum." He paces back and forth, formulating a plan to infiltrate the location of the device. "Kane, what else have you learned?"


    **P.S.** John's alias has been revised to be name Shift, instead of Chameleon.

    Combat Round 1

    Post by Gamemaster on Tue 21 Mar 2017 - 22:33

    @Zen
    Troy was startled by the yelling. His hand was just around the gun too and the sudden excitement made him stumbled, dropping the fire arm to the ground. As soon as he heard the words MHA, he knew this was going to get ugly. The Mutant Hunter Alliance was a legal law enforcement of mutant hunters. He wasn't sure how this guy knew he was a mutant, maybe the government already had their own type of scanner, but he also didn't care. He knew now he was going to have to kill this guy and probably the reporter too. He had only planned on one murder today. As he was contemplating his next move, he notice a net being fired at him. It was moving so slow though.

    It appeared to have passed right through him, as he rushed faster than any normal human eye could see. When he reappeared he was behind the MHA officer. He was close enough to whisper in his ear, "Hey buddy, stay out of this for your own good, only warning." He had every confident he could kill this officer, but that might just bring the entire MHA after him, not something most people would want.

    @Pioneer
    You awkwardly drop you pin and can hear the sound of something being fired outside. You aren't sure what it is, but you know it isn't a gun.

    @Nova
    You fail to even begin to see what happens. You were standing in the line of fire of the net, which missed Troy. Make a dodge roll (here)

    @Shift (Double post again. I dare you, I double dare you. Double post one more mother fucking time Razz)***
    You lean against the bark of the oak tree like a pro, the tree can tell you have spent much of your life slacking around laying up against trees Razz

    @Deadlock (#best avatar)
    You (and now shift who is looking at the phone) see some sort of commotion going on. It looks like a blurr just passed through the scene and you see people starting to take cover behind anything and everything.

    ***So for turn order sake, I post, then everyone who wants to makes one post. that's a round, entailing six seconds. If you and another character want to have a dialogue that is going to need more of a back and forth we can create another forum for you and you can post in there indefinably until you are done and just link back here. (if that makes sense?).

    Also note that the link i gave nova is where all dice rolls should be kept from now on. We all knew at this and will take a little while to be smooth, bear with me, this is started to get good.

    While watching the newscast in Kickin Chiken James Island PhD saw the interruption. By the time Zen was done with his yell, PhD had already laid down cash at the bar, and was headed to the scene.

    (sorry it's been a min. Mike left so i'm just gonna continue with his character.)

    Zen's turn
    Zen quickly reaches for his blaster, a new technological superior firearm that shoots an laser beam rather than bullets. "Not on your life you piece of trash! You coming in one way or another," he screams as a few shoots are fired at the mutant.

    GM's turn

    Post by Gamemaster on Sat 25 Mar 2017 - 18:12

    Troy takes a shot to the arm but it isn't bad. He quickly finds cover leaving the doctor and reporter to flee inside the building. Troy moves quicker than anyone is capable of seeing to attack Zen.

    Everyone can see a burst of wind rush towards Zen, but when it dies down nobody can see the mutant, just Zen looking as if a ghost and rushed past him.

    (You can make a perception check to see if you spot Troy.)

    @team outlaw (tony and tom)
    A park ranger happens to see you two and slowly makes his way towards you. He is about 2 minutes away and you can tell just from his body movement that it would probably be better if you weren't there to have a long dull boring conversation that probably involves some i'd checking.

    @Nova
    You managed to dodge the net.

    @Pioneer
    You see a doctor and a reporting running in through a side door.

    @PHD
    you can be on scene whenever you want.

    On my way to the scene I want to look up building schematics for MUSC, to make sure I know the entrances and exits. When I arrive at the scene I am careful to avoid security camera coverage and wait across the street watching. (Let me know if I need to roll anything for all that)

    As I see the park ranger coming closer to us, I nudge DeadShot and whisper, "Let's avoid this human, no time to waste on the weak." I then motion to him to walk past the ranger, and to follow me, in the direction towards the phenomenon that is causing people to flee in all directions.

    (alright for now on, everyone has 48 hours between my post to make a post, then i'm moving on Razz )


    Troy shouts out from somewhere, "Best give this chase up now boy, or I'll leave you in a pool of your own blood."

    Another blur of wind rushes past Nova and Zen. Zen falls to the ground but nobody is sure why.

    @team outlaw
    As you guys move out of sight, you both take one last look around to make sure nobody sees you, and then Deadlock teleports both of you to the scene.

    @PHD
    (I rolled a stealth check for you. Results: 28 vs DC 15)
    Despite the numerous recently added camera network downtown, particularly in the area in which you are heading (to provided additional security for the mutant sensor project), you were somehow not picked up on any of them. (Batman could learn a thing or two from you). You have arrived on scene and are hidden from everyone.

    @Nova
    You see a cloud of dark purple smoke to your left, and notice two people standing there you didn't see before.

    @pioneer
    you run into the door on your way out Razz

    Nova stands confused on where these two people came from but can assume that they are possibly mutants. While going over to Troy to make sure he is ok and ask him what he was thinking.

    @Nova
    Troy looks at you and says, "Who the hell are you!? Stay out of this if you know what's good for you."

    @Pioneer
    The doctor says to run and continues to push pass you, away from the outside menace.

    Troy kicks the door open and screams, "You can run Doctor, but you can't hide!"

    I jump in front of the doctor and say "Hey pal, why don't you pick on someone who isn't trying to hide!" I would then like to enter into mortal combat to protect from what I have seen these innocent people.
