The Doctor
HP 0
CONDITION: Fine


Will Save: 1d20+10=27

That would most likely have succeeded the DC. Now for the Perception: 1d20+8=17;

Not sure what I will see, but I prefer the Perception being lower than the Will. So, what does the Doctor notice?

Shutterbug

"STOP MOVING AND GET SQUASHED, YOU PESKY BUG!!!" the Queen shrieks as she flings more of the exploding cards at Shutterbug. The hero is playing a dangerous game, but the Queen seems to be careful not to trigger the explosion early. However, her fury eventually gets the best of her as a collection of cards fly towards Shutterbug. He manages to backflip out of the way, but the radio signal receiver in the center of the room is hit, shattering into a mess of circuits and sparks.

"Oh no...." The Queen of Hearts says, her face falling, "White Rabbit isn't going to be happy...."


Zorra

SLASH! SLASH! SHING!

Zorra dances her way through the crowd of Rabbits, cutting them down with every step she takes. Each one she hits vanishes in a puff of smoke, the others laughing as she slices through them. "So much for a clever fox," the Rabbits say in unison, "Can't even catch a Rabbit!!"

One of the White Rabbits takes out his pocketwatch and grins, "Oh what fun! The tea party can begin!!" He raises up his pocketwatch dramatically, "A very Merry UnBirthday, Freedom City!!!" With a laugh, he presses a button on the watch with his thumb.

.....Nothing happens.

He presses it again. Still nothing. He looks at the triggering device, pressing the button in rapid succession. Nothing's happening. "What?? Where are the fireworks?!?"

The Doctor

Along with what Zorra sees, you see this.


In the crowd of White Rabbits, you spot something heading towards your head! Flying straight for you like a frisbee is.....a top hat? Looking past it, you see a man dressed in a random collection of colorful clothes, a large top hat on his head. Fortunately, you have more than ample time to dodge the top hat, which sails harmlessly past your head and lands on the pavement beyond.
It has always been the prerogative of children and half-wits to point out that the emperor has no clothes. But the half-wit remains a half-wit and the emperor remains an emperor.

Cyborg
HP 1, Luck 0/2.
Defenses 22(20+2 recover), Toughness +10,
Condition: bruised

Cyborg watched Zorra dash away, grinning slightly, then turned her attention to the window above, estimating the distance as her eye glows again, looking around the interior up there while plotting her course.

Alright, not sure how high up the window the 'dark figure' ;) went into is, but I'd like to get up there if possible.
First off, standard action = Recover to remove that fatigue
Leaping 4 (120'), if it's higher than that maybe there's something else she could jump on top of first?
Or Athletics (1d20+8=15) to try to jump further?
While I'm at it, Perception (1d20+10=26) with Xray vision to figure out what's going on up there while she heads up.

Assuming I'm in range, please feel free to post my ascent/arrival.

Shutterbug

"Personally," Shutterbug said, "I'm pleased as punch!" He launched himself at Queenie, looking to land a solid right cross. He needed to put her down--and fast!--so he could concentrate and render the explosives safe.

Zorra
HP 0
CONDITION: Fine


"Cheshire totally called it," Zorra replies as she focuses on the rabbit with a pocket watch. "You are an egotistical buffoon." She rushes towards White Rabbit and launches a series of attacks.

Plasmakatana Attack (1d20+13=20) If that hits: Damage DC22 + Multiattack and Fort DC17 or -1 Toughness

Shutterbug and Cyborg

The Queen of Hearts crashes through the window of Pyramid Plaza, looking like she'd fall to the ground. Instead, she flies upward. With an angry scream, she uppercuts Shutterbug. The hero's able to leap back, and it's a good thing too. The force of the Queen's punch crashes through the floor, windowframe and a chunk of the ceiling.

Meanwhile, Cyborg sees all this from the tenth floor. She's been making her way to the fighting, leaping from window to window of the spiraled tower. Whoever the guy in the bug costume is, it looks like he's here to help.

Cyborg can shoot the Queen of Hearts from this point, or she can take a move action to reach the floor Shutterbug is on and use a melee attack.



Zorra and The Doctor

"That's not fair...."

SLASH!!

The multitude of White Rabbits, the giant tea table and the card knights vanish, the true criminal falling to the ground. He stumbles away from Zorra, making a mad dash for the doors of Pyramid Plaza.

"DORMOUSE!! Get me out of here!!"

A homeless man sleeping near the doors of Pyramid Plaza suddenly starts awake. He throws off his overcoat, revealing not a transient but a three-foot tall mouse creature in a Top hat and vest. He leaps through the revolving door at the tower's entrance.

"Boss, wait for me!!!" The Hatter yells, attempting to follow behind White Rabbit, even though it was clear he wouldn't be able to catch up to his leader.

White Rabbit is using extra effort to dash for Pyramid Plaza. He's run 60 of the 90 feet needed to reach the entrance. If you don't stop him, he'll reach the door next turn.

Zorra
HP 0
CONDITION: Fine


Matching White Rabbit's pace stride by stride, Zorra pursues the fleeing terrorist. Rabbit glances over his shoulder and sees the fox-hooded heroine is right next to him. Briefly making eye contact, Zorra says, "Silly Rabbit, trips are for kids!" As she says this, the swordswoman swipes the plasmakatana at Rabbit's legs hoping to knock his feet out from under him.

Free Action Atheletics (Run) (1d20+11=15) beats the DC15 to increase her speed by +1 rank, so she can also move 60 feet this turn.
Move Action keeps pace with Bun-Bun
Standard Action Trip Trip with Plasmakatana (1d20+13-2=30) If that hits, White Rabbit has to beat Acrobatics for Trip (1d20+18=23) with the better of his Athletics or Acrobatics.

Cyborg
HP 1, Luck 0/2.
Defenses 18(20-2 all out), Toughness +9(10-1 bruise),
Condition: bruised

Seeing the two dueling above, Cyborg did some quick calculations and chose her target. Her power-arm transformed into the cannon and she zeroed in on the Queen, who seemed to fit the 'theme' of the villainous gang.

With a slight whine, the cannon charged up before firing a blast of plasma at the airborne foe.

All out attack 2 (1d20+10=23)
DC 27 toughness save.

Shutterbug


"Something I said?!" Shutterbug hollers after the Queen. Once gone, Shutterbug returns his attention to the explosives.

"Maan," he said to his audience of none, "this would have taken the towers out!" What he didn't add aloud--for the thought was too scary to put voice to--was the number of people who would have died.

Technology: 1D20+12 = [14]+12 = 26 to render fully inoperative.

*OOC: From what I read, she's not gone, she came back and attacked you again :

I took this to mean she crashed through the wall and fled and that's why you were able to shoot at her from outside.

I meant that she broke an outside chunk of the tower. As of this exact moment, she's still floating outside.

I'll let the action stand as he'd want to make sure those explosives don't go off

Shutterbug and Cyborg

Shutterbug makes quick work of the C4 crates, quickly neutralizing the explosives. Though he was sure none of the bombs would explode now, he couldn't turn around fast enough to stop the attack from the Queen of Hearts. With a furious scream, she raised her fists over her head, preparing to squash him like the bug he was......

ZAAAAAAP!!

A bluish white beam of light strikes the Queen of Hearts in the back, sending her flying past Shutterbug and into the opposite wall. The supercriminal slumps to the floor, knocked unconcious by Cyborg's cannon blast.

Zorra

"ARRGH!" White Rabbit falls to the pavement with a loud thud.

"We'll have to play another day, Rabbit! The Hatter yells as he runs past them. He spins around, removing a smaller top hat from the gigantic one on his head and flinging it at Zorra.

Zorra's going to need to make a Dodge roll to beat a DC of 20

Zorra
HP 0
CONDITION: Fine


"A hat? Who throws a hat?" Zorra's too busy criticizing the thematic stupidity of Hatter's attack to get out of the blast zone.

Dodge (1d20+11=16) Forgot to add +2 for Evasion, but she's still getting the full effect of whatever the hat's going to do.
