Shock

Theres a howling groan of metal as gravity fights you for the hold of the van and tries to pull it to the earth with its passengers inside it but a grunt and a snarl of effort reawrds you with the sound of the van pulling back to safety as you drag and outright muscle it back onto solid ground.

The door comes off like tissue in your hand as you check on the mother who has a small bump on the noggin but is otherwise ok, and the kids who are fine just scared witless but unharmed.

Sirens in the distance closing rapidly alert you to the impending arrival of the Police and rescue crews.

-ooOoo-

Around a corner a block away The Electrocutioner fumes as he runs around a corner and snarls. "B@sterd next time I see him I'll roast him like a duck."

hes so caught up in his imagination of the various horrible things he will do to Shock that he fails to notice the young man walking out of a store where hes gotten a job helping out around the place. Bumping into the tall young man with a grunt he snarls again "Watch it jerk unless you want to end up lit up like a christmas tree!!"

As he yells he holds up his hands which are snapping and crackling with electricity. Kaatz sneers and decideds to engage in a little murder on the spot as he points his hand at the taller young man who narrows his eyes which seem to flash red for a moment. "Hell with it Ill kill you anyways!"

But before Kaatz can strike the repeating cascading wave you set up in his nervous system kicks in and suddenly shorts out his powers.

"What? what the hell!!?" he yelps as he tries to get his powers working only to be rewarded with small insignifigant sparks.

Thats when the taller younger man growls, growls like no animal on Earth, like a creature that hasnt been heard on earth in ages. A set of red scales flash across his face and eyes as he rears back an arm and fist.

A thunderous crack follows the as Jimmy K,aatz, AKA the Electrocutioner is hit hard enough to go flying backwards, then slams into a car which flips end over, and then imbeds the poor imbecile into a wall where he mewls quietly in pain before collapsing into blessed unconciousness on top of the crumpled remains of the car.

Before the young man can pursue him to really give him what for, a female voice calls out to him asking for some help with some heavy boxes shes needs to get from the shelves.

"Tony!, Tony can you help me please? I cant reach the pickles."


hero point for you sir for bloody well being a hero.

and a someone new makes an appearance.

Yes, Kung Lao brought them for us; but you are more than welcome. He probably already has a meal waiting." Kris always said you didn't need a crystal ball or tarot deck if Kung Lao was around.


"Excuse me Master but lunch is ready." Kung Lao annoucnes quietly form the doorway "Meatball subs." he replies evenly before returning to the kitchen.

"Now how does he do that?" Arcane asks rhetorically "Like he can read my mind or something"

"Sir that would be a long read." floats in from the kitchen

"Cheeky."

"Well lets eat first then have a look at you two shall we." he shrugs and turns to the dining area.

"Wait?" Ashley says"Have a look at us two?" she asks Kris as she follows you.

"Oh, awesome. Come on, Ashley. He makes the best... well everything actually. But his marinara sauce would put even the best Italian chefs out fo business." Kris remembered his recuperation... ok well several recuperations - he made a lot of mistakes in the beginning.

And a few later on...

And then there was that one two weeks ago...

Kung Lao even joked once that he did it just to get the cooking.

"Yeah, two of us. Me and my hitchhiker."

The anger had come quick after the threat....he threatened Tony. He threatened him and had the nerve to actually attempt something. Tony felt the fire raging in him burn hot at the first, and then rage at the second. One was bad....but both? That was suicidal.

The feel of the impact of the idiot's body as it flew across the street further fanned the flames and aroused a more predatory and territorial instinct in the changing young man.


"Tony!, Tony can you help me please? I cant reach the pickles."



The yell for help, almost pushes Tony over the edge for a moment. Almost. As quick as the scales flashed across his face, they recede. Eyes fading back to green, Tony shakes himself like a dog shaking off excess water. “You're lucky punk...” Tony whispers to the crumpled assailant as he snorts a small burts of fire from his nostrils.

“Comming Mr's Ngyuen” Tony yells out as he walks back into Ngyuen's Market Imporium.

The only response is a virule sneering and low snarl that subsides into a calculated silence as you entre the dining room and are seated a table straight out of either beauty and the beast or carrols mad tea party Ashley cant quite decide.

Still the sandwhich is served warm and is quite delicious as Doctor Arcane has 2 before hes done. leaning back with a satisifed belch, and a prompt "Scuseme." directed at Ashley. "Terrible table manners, mum always told me."

"the compliemnt is appreciated sir." floats out from the kitchen.

"So explain." He looks you dead in the eye from across the table as a tea cup makes its way to him and he takes a small sip.

Kris wipes his mouth and sets the napkin down. The sandwich was as good as he remembered.

"It started about a week ago. We were dealing with these humans who had been mutated into troll-like beings through science. During one of the fights, I took a bit of a pounding. Its was then they I first noticed it. A sense that this," holding up his right arm, "wasn't at all what I thought it was. There was definitely another presence inside of me. And it soon became very vocal."

Kris shifts in his chair, clearly uncomfortable. Telling the story now, he realizes what a fool he was not to say something earlier.

"It has been going at me ever since. I can't sleep, I can't meditate. It's constantly interrupting my thoughts. I have been becoming more and more edgy; thankfully, she has shown the patience of a saint." He looks at Ashley. So many other women would have left him the first time he yelled at them, but Ashley hung in there.

"I don't know how much longer I can go on like this. I'm afraid if something isn't done, I might lose myself to it." He hesitates, embarrassed to say the next words.

"Please, Dr Arcane, I need help."

Chris waited with the family for a minute until the EMT arrived, figuring that Kaatz was going to be long gone if he wanted to be. Then he picked up the trail again, following the wreckage he left. Well, he sure isn't worried about being followed.

Chris turned the corner and saw the smashed car and the man impressed in the wall. He walked up slowly shaking his head. "Tsk tsk. What do they always say on COPS? When you run, you just make it worse." As he chided the crook, he looked around, wondering how this had happened.

Arcane listens quietly and intently. he doesnt nod his head or shake it, he doesnt make grunts or sounds of aggreement or suprise or disgust. He just, listens.

Then he stands up seems to chew on the matter for a moment, then walks around looks you over for a second and then Promtply Gibbs you on the back of the noggin.

"I know all that Christan, who do you think I am?" he only slightly raises his voice as he shakes his head wonderingly "What I meant was why in the name of the 5 Chromatic dragon kings did you wait so long before telling me?"

he looks like hes about to give you another earful when Kung Lao gets his attention. "Excuse me sir, there something in the living room."

"Oh for heavens sake, you're leaking Christian." he turns on his heel and walks into the living room where you see a bright blue flash, smell brimstone and hear something howl an ungodly howl of pain before Arcane walks back in dusting off his hands.

"Where were we?" he mumbles a sec before snapping his fingers "Oh right I was cross at you for not coming here sooner."

In the background as he goes into the living room to clean up whatever was there KUng Lao looks over at you and nods in sympathy.




Just for fun Here Kung Lao

a quick look around reveals a number of interesting clues, no witnesses unfortunately save an older resident who only says that he saw the Electrocutioner go into an Alley and then come flying back out again like he was ""Shot from a cannon"".

The remains of the car, and the impact crater in the Brick wall show that Kaatz was hit with TREMENDOUS force enough to render him unconcious--and break his jaw and nose in the process-- before catapulting him with enough momentum to flip the care three times before he and it smashed into the wall.

In Kaatzes pocket you find something VERY interesting. Namely the address of a warehouse on it in the downtown industrial area of San Jose, and a time an hour from the present time tonight.

He takes a deep breath. "You know that I accepted the consequences of what I did, and I am willing to pay the price for my deal. I thought this was part of the price. I thought this was my burden for making the deal."

"But as it gets worse, I realize that I am losing control. I can't risk hurting anyone. So one way or another, this needs to stop."

There is a pause. "Leaking? Wait, I was at the base earlier. Did something leak out there? We need to take care of that!"

An hour. And of course it had to be tonight. That didn't leave him much time to figure out what happened to the Electrocutioner. And certainly not enough time to rest. "Ah the life of a hero."

Chris called the police to come pick up Kaatz and then went into the alley to see if there was any evidence left behind.

The cops arrive on the scene pretty fast and take Kaatz into custody using power dampners and what amounts to a rubber suit. No grounding No juice.

Upon inspection of the alley the only evidence of anything out of the ordinary is a whiff of sulfur and a few scorch marks that indicate The Elctrocutioner sparked let fly with his powers here.

You get the basic impression that Kaatz ran into the alley, suprised whatever or whoever he ran into and then his powers shorted out thanks to you. Whoever he ran into then promptly decked him--probably deserved it too-- and then left to whereever.


sufficent to establish he ran into something tough here.

Chris shrugged. He didn't have time to try to track down whoever had knocked Kaatz's block off. As it was, he barely had time to get down to San Jose. So he headed back to the casino, picked up his car and headed for the warehouse.

"Hmm the base?" he seems to look half distracted for a moment as he sometimes does like he was thinking of something, or maybe looking out over time and space.

"No, no your fine, you had help." he says a moment later "It appears your friend was using those brief moments of uncertainty to do the infernal equivalent of marking its territory." he rumbles on nealry not even taking a breath in the process.

"In effect he was trying to leave markers for others that they could then use to violate the ban and come right up since in effect you would by proxy of course have left the window open and allowed the flies in." he smiles hugely "isnt that lovely of him?"

"Well, lets have a look, on your feet!" he steamrolls on pulling a pair of glasses out and putting them on as he steps up to you.

An hour later you find yourself outside the industrial park where the warehouse is that was indicated on the piece of paper in Kaatzes pocket.

For the most part the warehouse looks like several of the others in the area. Non descript a little ratty looking even.

Its right up until 2 guys step out front to smoke that you catch that one of them has an Ak-47, and the other as he stretches reveals a machine pistol in his pants. A few minutes later a car drives up and 2 guys get out. The car is a low rider common among some of them more gang oriented crowd and the two that exit it look like a couple of upstanding members of society.

They enter and a few minutes later exit carrying a large bag of something. A few minutes later the pair out front reenter the warehouse.

--ooOoo--

Unfortunately the rest of the night wasnt a pleasant one for Tony. No sooner had wonderful Mrs. Nguyen gotten things squared away in the store then a call had come in from the police. Her young nephew, a friend and fellow gamer was in the hospital.

Appareantly of a drug overdose. It seems he was tricked into trying a new version of MAX called Meta. Meta appareantly is an amped version of MAX and ZOOM, but where as those too only boost strength or speed, META has a completely random effect which can literaly turn someone into a superhuman.

The only reason it isnt used widely is that its lethal after nearly any use. Her nephew Tran was lucky that it was only a minor dose slipped into his drink. For about an hour the poor Kid was breathing snow and ice out his nose before he collapsed from extreme hypothermia.

See thats the problem with META after the brief high of powers, the powers then feedback on the user. So a person with Super Strength would suddenly suffer extreme muscle atrophy, a person who breathes fire would suffenly immolate from within.

Very few survive

Which leads to where Tony is now dangling some poor schmuck about 100 feet off the ground while he sings like a canary about where he got the META. Which as it happens is a warehouse in San Joses industrial area.

theyre pushing a poison.

In your territory.

They tried to take a piece of your horde.
