From Bioshock Infinite, this "Heavy Hitter" is someone you don't forget about after you've been in a fight with it. The Motorised Patriot is basically a large robot made with Columbian technology that carries a man-portable Gatling gun, made to look like either George Washington or Abraham Lincoln (depending on whether it's controlled by the Founders or the Vox Populi).

Sakura is a second generation Anglo-Japanese woman who makes ends meet by being a webcomic artist. On her 20th birthday, she had a very vivid dream.

A beautiful Japanese woman smiled at her, saying "My greetings to you, Sakura. I am the kami Amaterasu. For generations, your bloodline has chosen to serve me by banishing those who belong to the darkness. If you choose to serve me, I cannot say that the path will be easy, nor can I say it will be simple. But walking it will help protect your world from those who wish to pervert it."

Sakura had been looking for a purpose for the past year or so, and it seems that it found her. She accepted the offer without hesitation.

Amaterasu said "I can give you some gifts to make it easier for you to help hold back the darkness. Power over the stuff of light itself, the power to heal grievous wounds with but a touch, and this amulet, which will protect you and allow you to realise the flow of magic around you."

Sakura said "Thank you, Lady Kami. I won't let you down."

Amaterasu said "When you wake, you will know that this is real and not just a dream. Go, with my blessing."

When Sakura woke up, she had her proof that her visitation was real when she saw that she was wearing the amulet... and a miko's hakama, knowing for a fact that she wore something else the night before.

Image

This is the sort of clothing that Sakura woke up in.


As Sakura was walking around town wondering what to do, she heard that Dr. Green was forming a new team, focusing on supernatural threats. She discussed the matter with Green, who invited her into the Guardians. Sakura has since become the team's mythology specialist.

Start Spreadin' The News, Part 2

As Simon landed at Hudson Street, he realised that he messed up. He didn't have any DVDs on him to give to the bureaus, instead of the memory card. Good thing he found out now, rather than inside the office. He quickly looked up cyber-cafés in New York on his phone, and found one at 70 Greenwich Avenue, half a mile away as the crow flies. He knew from experience that it would take him about twenty minutes to copy the Celestia video to four DVDs. He walked into the café and asked the clerk "Excuse me, but how much is it for four blank DVDs with cases and an hour on the internet?"

"That'll be ten bucks. Take terminal number 4 over there. You can pay me afterwards."

"Thanks."

After Simon copied the video to the computer (which makes burning the video to the DVDs a lot easier), he went online to find out what everyone thought of him. On the public sites, there was a spectrum of opinions from 'Who does that sword-swinging psycho think he is?! Someone should arrest him ASAP!' all the way up to 'Finally, someone who actually knows how to stop threats like the Akimbo Assassin! The police need to leave him alone so some justice can be done for a change!'

One week. One. Week. That's all it took to get him from being a nobody to becoming the talk of the internet. Then he hit the Time in a Bottle's site. The Time in a Bottle is a London pub where every British super - both heroic and villainous - tries to have a drink at least once a month, usually on the first Thursday. Its website is known to be the best chat and forum site to talk to British supers, and Simon got an account within a week of being transformed. He checked the list of those who were inside the chatroom...

Code: Select all

Present: Britannia, Cheetah, Dr. Green, Faceoff, Griffin, Lady Vic, Squire.


The other six people in the room were all well-known in Britain. Britannia for being apparently empowered by the Spirit of Britain and doing a lot of good, Cheetah for her rivalry with Wonder Woman, Dr. Green for finding the sort of things that go bump in the night... and then bumping them right back, Faceoff for his refreshingly direct and effective approach to crime-fighting and Lady Vic as a world-class assassin equal to the likes of Orion the Hunter or Bullseye, but much saner. Simon knew that although the Knight wasn't there, Squire would soon tell him what went on. He knew that what he said next would soon spread like wildfire with those six listening in.

Code: Select all

Britannia: So I told those dealers that if they dealt near the hospital again, there's going to be trouble for their whole gang.

Lady Vic: Some folk simply have no standards at all, Britannia. I hope you made it clear about what sort of trouble to expect.

Britannia: I certainly did. Being able to crush the top of a nearby stone bollard bare-handed works wonders for intimidating someone!

Griffin: Coming to you live from New York, it's the Griffin! How's everyone doing?

Faceoff: Griffin! You've been in NYC for about two days, and you've already stirred things up! Is it true that you met some talking ponies? And that you and Ms. Magus had a go @ Hexenhammer? *Please* tell me you stopped that bible-bashing bastard!

Griffin: True on both counts, Faceoff! Took the ponies on a tour of Manhattan myself! And we didn't beat Hexenhammer by ourselves. I managed to kill that traitor to all humanity in order to protect the girls, and his soul went into the hammer as usual (That's how someone from the Inquisition's heyday made it to the modern era). Before anyone could make their move, my Lady (the one who brought me back from death and empowered me) ordered everyone to sheath their weapons and not to touch the hammer. She picked it up, saying "I'm sure you know who and what I am, Herr Erich Adler." Hexenhammer was just begging for mercy that he knew the hard way just wasn't coming. I guarantee, looking my Lady in the eye can make a hard man brick themselves. My Lady then told Hexenhammer "The same mercy you gave those who selflessly used their talent in magic to help others? I'll see to you shortly, and then we'll see how much mercy you deserve." She squeezed the hammer and it simply disintegrated! Nothing has assured me just how powerful she was compared to seeing her being the only person who was immune to Hexenhammer's possession!

Squire: You're joking about all that, aren't you?!

Griffin: That was my first ever First Contact, Squire! I am *not* in a position to exaggerate. I swear, someone ought to write a book...

Dr. Green: What did your Lady do next?

Griffin: She walked right into Ms. Magus' house *without a single ward going off,* and Ms. Magus was still *pissed* from Hexenhammer's now-botched murder attempt. She had a spell in each hand, but I got in her way before she could use it. I made it quite clear to her that I was stopping her for *her* safety. I told her that my Lady wasn't there to harm the ponies and that it would probably be *against* her best interest to hurt the girls. We went to the basement where the portal back to their world was ready to be opened. That portal was opened from the other end, and I was just wowed by what I saw come out of it. A *very* large pony with a coat as white as snow, an unicorn's horn, a pegasus' wings and a mane that reminded me of the Aurora Borealis! I was nearly struck dumb at the sight of her!

Cheetah: What happened after that?

Griffin: I spoke to her and I learnt a few things about what was going on: Her name was Princess Celestia of the Kingdom of Equestria (I know! Some things just can't be made up!), it turns out that she sent the girls over to see if ponies could interact with humans (I made it rather clear what my opinion on her particular approach was) and that she knew my Lady before the incident. Celestia told me that my Lady claimed that I'd be more than able to protect the girls if they were in danger, and that I just proved her right! The video I have of Celestia was recorded after that conversation. Keep an eye on the news channels and on the internet, you might just see it! And I'll be seeing you later!



Simon soon had the video copied in good time. He also took the time needed to upload the video to Youtube, DailyMotion and Nico Nico Douga, remembering to add a link to the torrent in each video. As he went to pay the clerk, a man came in and put a gun to his head. The robber said "Give me all your money or you're gonna die, man!"

It was obvious from his voice that this guy was in withdrawal. Simon knew he couldn't kill the idiot without drawing heat, but he had no reason to go easy on a junkie. Simon completely unfurled his wings, saying "Listen to me! I am the Griffin of London, slayer of the Akimbo Assassin and Hexenhammer! Are you really that tired of living that you'd choose to commit suicide-by-cape?! Surrender now or die in pieces!"

Griffin rolls Insight and gets 13. He knows that the Thug who's putting a gun to his head sounds like he's trying to get another hit. He pops his wings and attempts to Intimidate him, getting 19. The Thug got 13 and surrendered!



The junkie put his gun on the counter and went down on his knees. Simon said to the clerk "Call the police. I'll keep this addled junkie from going walkabout until they arrive."

As the police arrived, Simon snuck out the back and flew back to Hudson Street at top speed...


Current Office, Hudson Street, Manhattan...

Simon had made it to Current's New York office, and this time he was prepared. As he went through the door, the receptionist said "Can I help you, sir?"

Simon told her "Actually, you can, ma'am. You see, I'm the Griffin of London-"

"Who helped Ms. Magus save Queen Mary 2? You're not going to start a fight, are you?"

"What? No! I'm here because I have a video that'll shed some light on what happened yesterday."

"With those ponies?"

"Yeah. I'm here because I have video footage of their ruler picking them up and bringing them home."

"Okay then, I'll ring the manager." The receptionist went on the phone and said "Sir, we have the Griffin of London here. He says that he has some more footage of those ponies. He's telling me that he somehow got footage of their ruler! Do you want me to send him in?" She then said "The Manager will see you now. Follow me please."


Manager's Office...

As Simon went into the office, the manager said "So, Mr. Griffin. I believe you have a very unique video to show me."

"I certainly do, sir. I have even more footage of ponies from another world."

"Give me a copy, and I'll soon see if it's worth showing."

"Here you are, sir. It's in MPEG format, so you'll need to use your computer to view it."

"That's fine by me."


Two minutes later...

"Yeah, we can use this. How exactly did you get this footage?"

"I simply asked her Royal Highness if Ms. Magus and myself could record her making the portal back to Equestria, which is what they call their world. Or at least the area of it where ponies are predominant. I told her that the video would prove her existence to humans. The video's in 1080p MPEG format so it should be much easier to make broadcast-ready."

"Okay, that's perfect. Now, about paying you..."

"I don't want any payment as I'm doing a public service here. If that video gets into your next news broadcast, I'll consider that to be payment enough. See you later!"

Enemy: The only beings who don't call themselves this to Omega are those who are actively working for him.
Obsession: With dragging all creation into the Terminus.
Obsession: With destroying Earth-Prime, the first and only world to have ever succeeded in defying him.
Weakness: If the Armour is breached by a Critical Hit, Omega will lose one point from all ability scores every minute (10 rounds in combat) that passes until he either dies or gets back to the Terminus.

Behold, the single greatest threat that the World of Freedom has ever faced: Omega, Lord of the Terminus!

Omega wants one thing only, and he doesn't care how he does it: the destruction of all creation, with whatever's left being consigned to his home realm of the Terminus.

As a result, every living thing, be they heroic, villainous or inbetween, will call Omega one thing and one thing only: Enemy. You see, for Omega's goals to come to pass, everyone else's hopes, plans, dreams and schemes must fail like they never even mattered at all.

Ah, Rex Power Colt.
I have to agree, it's a fun game worrying less about making anything make sense and more about having a fun nostalga flashback to the bad sci-fi and action movies of the 80's. I think more of the companies could afford to learn from that.

Complications
Distinctive Appearance: Tabaluga's a dragon! And a friendly one at that.

Fame: A lot of people worldwide have heard about Tabaluga, but he's most recognisable by nearly every native German-speaker in Europe.
Homesick: Tabaluga wants to go home to Green Land. He enjoys flying over forests as they remind him of home. And Germany has plenty of forests.
Motivation: Doing Good
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Languages
English, German, Greenlander (Native)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Defense
Dodge 10, Parry 10, Fortitude 10, Toughness 8, Will 10
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Power Points
Abilities 36 + Powers 41 + Advantages 17 + Skills 26 (52 ranks) + Defenses 30 = 150
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabaluga is from a world where there are but three lands: Ice World to the north, where it is always winter, ruled by the snowman called Arktos, who wants the entire world to be covered in ice. To the south, there is an exceptionally dry Desert ruled by a sand spirit calling itself Humsin, who would see his entire world covered in sand.

Both those rulers were arrogant, and they both wanted nothing less than the world being completely covered in snow or sand.

And in the middle is the primarily forested area called Green Land, ruled by the kind dragon Tabaluga, who has spent his life fending off attacks, plots and schemes from the other two lands.

In the Betterverse, Arktos and Humsin formed a plan. They would both cast a ritual to send Tabaluga to another world, making Green Land open for conquest. The rituals worked, dragging Tabaluga and Happy, the snow hare who was his best friend, to another world. But the rituals exacted their price by dragging Arktos and Humsin there as well.

When they landed, they all found themselves in a city that the locals called "Berlin". Arktos and Humsin soon fled for the nearest pole and desert.

Tabaluga and Happy were invited by the TV channel ZDF to become the new hosts for their children's time-slot. This was in 1997. Even now, a couple of years after the show finished broadcasting, they are still well-known all over Europe.

Arktos was last sighted establishing a base in the Arctic Circle, and teaming-up with other villains on occasion.

Humsin's currently in the middle of the Sahara, still trying to figure out why people are calling him an "Efreet" or a "Djinn", whatever those are.

Tabaluga's stats are based on him being in the Betterverse. To make his stats closer to the original albums or the cartoon, remove Expertise: Acting, both non-native languages and Wealth, and use the 7 PP however you see fit.

Start Spreadin' The News, Part 3


Hokus & Pokus Occult Curiosities, Greenwich Village...


As Cass entered the shop, she heard a familiar voice saying "Ms. Valentine. Please, enter freely and of your own will."

"Thank you, Madame Xanadu."

"Tell me, why are you here?"

"I want a tarot reading, please."

"This wouldn't have anything to do with the Griffin coming to town, would it? As even I've heard about that fight with Hexenhammer, may a curse be upon his soul."

Madame Xanadu rolls Well-Informed on Griffin's Investigation/Well-Informed table and gets 26. She gets four degrees of success.


"I'm here to see if helping him is a good idea."

"Very well. Daena's on vacation, so you're going to have to read the card's name out loud for me, like you did before. Turning the first card now to represent the Griffin, who shall be the querant."

"The Fool."

"A symbol of madness."

"Griffin told me that he's autistic. That would explain the Fool being drawn."

"The Fool could also mean a method to his madness, and it can also represent someone who's going to truly stir things up. Next card..."

"The Knight of Swords."

"Suggesting a short temper and/or utter fearlessness."

"Both of which he has. The first time he saw a ghost, he didn't flinch at all, and he nearly lost control! Then again, said ghost was trying to sink the ship we were both on at the time."

"Then it was a good thing you two intervened. You would have had to swim for it otherwise. Next card..."

"The Knight of Wands."

"Representing the need to act on instinct in battle and other dangerous situations. Or of the need to give it your all, at all times. Next card..."

"The Ace of Swords."

"Meaning decisive ability or taking an unusual decision."

"It could also refer to the sword I've seen him wield in battle. He can strike ghosts with it like they were solid, and he can swing it at speeds you wouldn't believe. And unlike most 'heroes', he's willing to kill his foes if things are bad enough."

"Next card..."

"The Tower inverted."

"The Lightning-struck Tower?! That quite literally spells disaster! Inversion means that he could exit in a good manner."

"He's currently on the run from the British government. There's a slight chance that he could get out of that mess with his freedom and lack of criminal record intact."

"I see. And finally..."

"The Nine of Cups."

"In the end, something he truly wants or desires will come to pass. To sum it up, I believe that he's in his current situation to gain a certain sort of experience that he needs, developing and leaving his mark wherever he goes. The time is surely coming where he will be involved in a great disaster or a major battle, maybe even both, and finally earn his heart's desire should he successfully deal with it."

"It looks like he really is destined for greatness."

"It certainly seems that way. As for your question, it sounds like you should help him. Who knows, maybe some of that success will come your way."

"I think it already has, Madame. Do you know why Griffin fought Hexenhammer in the first place?"

"No, I'm afraid I don't."

"Long story short, some ponies from another world found themselves in my basement after a teleport spell was apparently mis-cast. Two were normal ponies, two were unicorns and two were pegasi."

"First Contact in your own home! Who would have thought it?"

"True. I alerted Griffin at once. He seemed to get on well with them. One of the unicorns, calling herself Twilight, mentioned having to make the spell to get her friends back. I decided to help them. If they were telling the truth about being lost, it was the right thing to do. If they weren't, then the less they saw of Earth, the better. Griffin offered to take the ponies to Manhattan for a while so I could focus on the ritual. Twilight stayed behind to help with the spell."

"What happened then?"

"Griffin did the tour like he said he would, taking the girls to Central Park. I sent him a text saying that the spell to get them back was ready. He went to Nintendo World for a breather, and that's when the Order raised hell. This morning, I saw closed-circuit footage of Griffin's reaction on the news. Eleven men unconscious and their leader scared stiff in less than a minute. He then alerted me about Hexenhammer. He got the girls back to the Lodge pretty fast after that."

"Then comes the part I've heard of. Griffin killing Hexenhammer while you picked off his minions."

"True. But that's not all. Hexenhammer's soul then went into his hammer, as per usual. Before anyone made a move we all heard a supernaturally loud voice ringing in our heads, telling us to drop our weapons and not to touch the hammer. I asked Griffin if he knew who she was."

"Who did he say it was?"

"That she was his Lady, who brought him back to life. He looked completely scared of her. And this is the man who fought the Akimbo Assassin and won, that I'm talking about here! And this woman just turns up and he's suddenly on the verge of fleeing in panic!"

"I think I know who you mean. Word is that he's been talking to a woman called Celia, who's been giving him some advice. I'm thinking, maybe they're the same woman. Maybe that's how he knows her."

"You're on to something there, I'll tell you why in a minute. So the woman comes in, and not a single ward of mine goes off! I checked them all afterwards, and they were completely untriggered."

"Powerful enough to make your wards non-existent?!" Xanadu whistled.

"I know. And I was still in a rage from the attempt to kill the ponies. I went down the stairs, ready to kick that woman's ass, when Griffin got in my way. He made it quite clear that she wasn't there to hurt them. He reckoned that if his theory was correct, it would be against her interests to hurt them. I managed to calm down a little after that. We went down to the basement where we had everything set up. Before we could do anything, the portal opened from the other side!"

"That is quite surprising indeed."

"You should have seen who came out! This pony was as tall as you or me, she had an unicorn's horn, a pegasus' wings and a mane like the Aurora Borealis! I only knew her intentions weren't hostile when the other ponies got down on four knees before her, with Twilight calling her a princess and being very glad to see her."

"Well, having your ruler take the risk of going to a different world altogether to bring you back would make anyone glad. And a true rarity, in my experience."

"True. The Princess turned to face the woman who Griffin called his Lady, and said 'How are you, Celia?'"

"Then it's obvious that they knew each other before."

"Griffin didn't know that. After Celia introduced us, he reacted by going 'You two actually know each other?!' Celestia said she diverted the teleport spell that Twilight cast, saying that she and Celia wanted to see if ponies and humans could co-exist. Personally, I think it's doable, but both sides need to know more about each other before anything major goes ahead."

"I agree. What did Griffin say next?"

"In the most polite terms he could muster after being involved in a fight to the death, he said that the world can be quite dangerous if you can't adapt, and that he disapproved of her method, mentioning how he'd do it if he was in her position. Celestia told Griffin that nothing meant more to her than the well-being of all her subjects. She said that Celia told her that he could protect the girls if they were in danger, and he just proved her right."

"If you ask me, it looks like they're planning on making both worlds much closer."

"You might be right, Madame. I have to go now. Thanks for the reading."

"Farewell, Cass. May we meet again."

BBC Office, Sixth Avenue...

As Simon went into the BBC office, the receptionist saw him. Her face went white as she said "I know you! You're the Griffin, aren't you? The one who killed the Akimbo Assassin!"

"Yes. Yes, I am."

"What are you doing here?!"

"Calm down, please. I assure you, I mean you no harm. I have something you should have a look at. I take it you heard about that tour I gave those ponies?"

"I think everyone in the Five Boroughs heard about it!"

"Then I'm certain you'll want to take a look at this. The footage on this DVD is something that I know the BBC haven't got."

"What on Earth would that be?"

"Those ponies. I have footage of their ruler picking them up and taking them home. Give that video to your boss, I've got more where that came from. It's in 1080P MPEG, so you'll need a PC to look at it. And I know this place can make it broadcastable. See you later."


Simon then flew to the News Corp building, which was also on 6th Avenue, taking him less than thirty seconds. He saw from outside that the security was actually strict. There was a manned X-ray scanner and metal detector, and there had to be CCTV as well. He knew that he had to find a way to hide his blade in order to get through without the NYPD, or worse, AEGIS getting involved. He had an idea.

He got his smartphone out and said "My Lady, I wish to speak to you."

Celia's face replaced Simon's on the screen's reflection. She said "Yes, Simon?"

"I'm doing that distribution thing that we talked about yesterday, and one of the offices has high security. I was just wondering if you could look after my sword for a few minutes."

"Certainly. You only need to ask when you want it back." Simon checked and his sword wasn't there anymore.

"Thank you, my Lady."


As Simon entered the building, the guard saw the DVD that he was carrying. She said "May I ask what you have on this, Griffin?"

"Something that I know Fox is going to want. Did you hear about what I got up to yesterday?"

"Beating up several armed goons and saving ponies from another world? Yeah, I heard about that! My cousin sold you and that unicorn a copy of Vogue!"

"I heard Rarity talking about fashion, and I thought that the magazine would be right up her alley. My guess was soon proven correct. Anyway, that DVD has footage of their ruler picking them up and taking them home. I'll just drop it off with the receptionist."

"Fine with me."

So Simon dropped the DVD off, telling the receptionist what was on there, and walked back out.


Next stop: The Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle, which had the nearest CNN offices. Took him thirty seconds. When he got inside, he checked the map. 3rd floor: Time Warner World Headquarters. That would be the place to hand the DVD over. He simply flew up there.

Simon then walked right into the Headquarters. He said to the receptionist "I'm the Griffin of London, and have I got news for you!"

The receptionist said "You're not going to start trouble, are you?"

"No chance. I have a DVD for you to show CNN, ma'am. Tell me, have you heard about what I got up to yesterday?"

"I was at Nintendo World at the time. I saw what happened with those gunmen. When you revealed your wings, I was freaking out!"

"Must've been a case of metatremors. It's a rare but natural reaction when something is real, but your mind's not accepting it. They usually happen the first time you actually see superpowers being used near you. For most, it's quite rare for it to occur. The first bout of it is always the worst, but it tends to be less shocking each time, the more you get used to seeing them."

"So I shouldn't worry about it?"

"Not at all, ma'am. But seriously, I have some more footage of those ponies. To be exact, I've got footage of their ruler picking them up and taking them home."

"I'm sure CNN will want that!"

Simon handed over the last DVD and said "Here. It's in 1080P MPEG, but I'm sure they can make it broadcastable. See ya!"


Simon then headed over to the nearest men's bathroom, where he could get some privacy. He went to the nearest mirror and said "My Lady Celia, I've just finished that distribution thing, and I was wondering if I can have the sword back, please?"

He saw a pink whippet in the reflection, who said "Good afternoon, Simon. I'm Annabelle. Mother is a bit busy at the moment. She told me to give you the sword back as soon as you asked. Catch."

Simon grabbed the sword. He unsheathed it, finding that it had been cleaned better than he thought possible. He whistled.

As he put the swordbelt back on, Annabelle then said "I should tell you that the blade's been scheduled for sharpening later today."

"I just hope I don't need to use it until then."

"I hope so, too. I've seen what you're capable of."

"Oh, come on! I've only killed two living people, and I have a rule about that! If you bothered to check, you'll find that everyone I've killed has either already killed another or they would have killed someone if I hadn't intervened."

"I thought you killed four people."

"Captain Blood was already dead before I got to him, and I'm not quite sure about how to describe Hexenhammer, given how he lasted so long. Frankly, if the Lady herself didn't turn up and destroy the hammer, I'm still not sure if I could take him!"

"I see. I can only hope that you don't get involved in any more fights."

"I hope so too, but we don't always get what we want, do we?"

"No, we don't. I have to go now."

"See you later."


Five minutes later...

As Simon crossed the road from Columbus Circle to Central Park, a very large man with a lion's mane and tail, and the wings and claws of an eagle landed in front of him. The man said "So you're the limey asshole who's been calling himself the Griffin."

Simon drew his sword, saying "Yeah, I am. What about it?"

"The name's Johnny Horton, and I'M the Griffin! You're stealing my name, damn it!"

Start Spreadin' The News, Conclusion


11 AM EST, Central Park

Simon said to Johnny "I stole your name?! I didn't even know it was taken! And you really think you can scare me? I've actually seen sheep that are scarier than you!" He then slapped Johnny with his sword! Johnny clawed at Simon, clouting him in the face.
Johnny gets 20 on Intimidation, but Simon is Fearless. Simon Taunts and only gets 8, while Johnny gets 19 and resists. Roll Initiative! Simon gets 21, Johnny gets 13. Simon gets 2 HP; one for being there and for civilians in the area. Johnny gets 2 HP; One for being there and one for the more personal motive of someone else using his alias. Neither of them are using lethal force, Simon because he's right outside the CNN office, and traumatised media don't broadcast your name and face in a good light and Johnny because he simply wants to beat Simon into submission.

Simon draws Justice, then he Charges and deals an All-Out Power Attack at Johnny with the Storm of Steel. He gets 28, crit scored! He ups the DC to 35 (including Multiattack bonus). Johnny gets 22, getting hit and Dazed! Johnny does his own All-Out Power Attack at Simon, getting 29 and hitting. Simon gets 18 and is hit.

Simon: 1 Injury. Johnny: 1 Injury, Dazed.



Simon then slashed at Johnny, keeping him at bay.
Simon attacks with Storm of Steel and gets 22. Johnny gets a Natural 1. He spends a HP and gets a Natural 20, completely resisting it. Johnny attacks and gets 23. Simon gets 14, then spends a HP to get 27, resisting it completely.

Johnny: 1 HP.



Simon then lands another blow on Johnny's head! And was hit in the chest as a result.
Simon uses the Storm of Steel and gets 28, crit scored! He raises the DC to 35 (Including Multattack Bonus). Johhny gets 23 and is hit & Dazed! Johnny attacks Simon, getting a Natural 1! He spends a HP and gets 19. Simon gets 16 to resist, spends a HP and gets 22 and is hit and Dazed.

Simon: 1 HP, 2 Injuries, Dazed. Johnny: 0 HP, 2 Injuries, Dazed.



Simon proceeded to break one of Johnny's left ribs with a satisfying crunch.
Simon attacks and gets 29, Crit scored! He raises the DC by 5 Johnny gets 15 and is hit and Staggered! Johnny gets 11 and misses Simon.

Johnny: 3 Injuries, Staggered.



He then broke one of Johnny's right ribs with another satisfying crunch.
Simon attacks and gets 26, crit scored! He raises the DC by 5. Johnny gets 11 and is now Incapacitated! Fight's Over!



As Johnny fell, Simon went "I didn't know that the Griffin name was taken, Johnny. I think I'll keep it. After all..." He then stamped on Johnny's chest saying "What are you going to do about it?" He took a photo of Johnny, then he called the police, telling them to bring an ambulance.


6 PM BST, The Guardhouse, Golders Green, London...

Michael Cohen, known to most as the Golem, was watching Sky News HD in the lounge when he pressed the red button. When the menu loaded, he selected the option 'Ponies from another world'. Then he shouted "Everyone come quick! You have to see this!"

Dr. Green said "What is it, Michael?"

"The Griffin's made the news again! And you won't believe what he's done this time!"

Everyone ran over, and saw the video that the Griffin and Ms. Magus had made.

Sakura went "I don't believe it! Those two actually proved that unicorns and pegasi really exist!"


6.15 PM BST, Ministry of Powers, Whitehall...

Troy Griffin, the head of the Ministry of Powers, is having a discussion with Agent Jill Benbow in his office.

"Tell me, have you seen that new video of his?"

"I saw it on YouTube just before you called me in, sir. I'd bet it was just sheer luck that the ponies landed - for lack of a better term - at Ms. Magus's house. The same-day TV broadcasts, high-definition YouTube uploads and torrenting are consistent with a successful self-publishing attempt."

"So we're dealing with someone who can move fast, knows how to get organised quickly, knows the value of propaganda and puts up a major fight at the drop of a hat. Is there any other Griffin footage that you know of?"

"There's some of Griffin and Ms. Magus returning to Queen Mary 2 after they set out to destroy Captain Blood. And she was at full capacity at the time, sir. They must have beaten him quite handily, as they were both able to fly back unaided. That's just under 3,900 people still alive because of them. Assuming that it's legitimate - and neither of them strikes me as the sort to stage it - that's an entire town's worth of witnesses who'd gladly call them okay. Given how much it costs to sail on Queen Mary 2, some of those passengers are likely to be quite influential. And wouldn't you tell your friends and family about the angel and the magician who saved you from a ghostly pirate attack?"

"You're right, I would if I was there. Agent Benbow, I am personally assigning you to keep an eye on the Griffin. We might have need of him."

"I understand, sir."

Griffin gets 1 PP. He spends it on 2 extra ranks of Penetrating for the Armour-Piercing Strike (I checked on Hero Lab, and it's acceptable with Justice's current build). He also raises the Storm of Steel AP to Damage Rank 7.
