Hero's Unlimited: The Catsiverse: The Viper Wars

Postby catsi563 » Wed Nov 30, 2011 4:21 pm

Chapter 1: Terror at the mall

In the two years since Bay Cities renewal, many things have been rebuilt bigger better and far superior to the past versions. One such place was the Milpitas based Great Mall of the Bay Area.

Once a mere bunch of outlet stores and restaurants, and a muliplex theater. It has been rebuilt over the last couple of years into a monolithic shopping center that is now the largest retail space in North America. A multi level commercial beauty of stores, restaurants, and the first ever 24 screen multiplex in the nation. A theme park with waterslides and rides, a childrens daycare area, An Aquarium sponsored by the Monterey Bay Aquarium, A 1000 room hotel, a local Police station and its own fire department make the nearly 10,000,000 square foot enclosed space a miracle of the modern age and the jewel of Bay Cities economy.

The newly Christened Mall of the Bay has rapidly gained in popularity over the last 3 months since its opening with both locals and the tourist set. Having its own bus terminal, and BART and rapid transit access stations make it accessible to the entire area as a whole with little or no difficulty.

And this multi-story marvel of modern commerce is where you all find yourselves on this glorious summer day. Some of you are here to work, some of you are here to plain have fun, and some of you are here to touch something "Bigger" then yourself.

All of you though are aware of one thing that whatever your views on capitalism or economics, this place is a modern miracle in its capability to bring people of all stripes and religions together.

You are also aware of the fact that a place like this with the hundreds of millions of dollars poured into it and moving through it. Is a nearly irresistable target.

Johnny Liang

The last four years since your fathers death has been tumultuous ones. The pressures of representing your school as its master with the increased press and glare of the media spotlight have made attempts at a regular life difficult even for a serene soul such as yourself.

But as events are want to do in the universe, Destiny had more in store for you as you were forced to deal with the destruction of the old school during the Usurpers Black Friday invasion. You fought admirably and well assisting several of the hero teams in battle and even for a brief time held your own against the masked assassin Stormwatch. A remarkable feat which earned you no small amount of praise. And of course this also brought out the challengers as many sought to build a reputation by defeating you.

They failed of course, your remarkable and hard earned skills more then abley handling them, though one known by the name Green Dragon pushed you harder then ever and more often then the others. But that is neither here nor there.

Now you stand watching one of your classes of younger children through the window of the new school located on the lower floor of the three story Great Mall of the Bay Area. In what had to be a stroke of brilliance or divine inspriation, or utter insanity. You asked for the school to be rebuilt here and were granted the request. By adding a Zen Garden to the area outside the mall which your school backs up to and opens out into, and by maintaining it yourself or with your students you get a great break on the rent and utilities.

while you're fairly certain your more conservative ancestors would be rolling in there graves, You wonder if your father--his picture proudly displayed on the back wall of the training area-- would approve.

Here amongst so many people of different stipes, creeds, and so on and so forth you have a connection to the one like no where else ever before. As you stand out amongst the crowd contemplating it all the conenction to the one and to the numerous people walking, milling and shopping about you feel that sense of oneness like never before.

As you look around the crowd a lovely young woman shepparding a group of younger children on a tour is nearly run over by three men in workers coveralls. Shes ok and the three men are swiftly lost in the milling crowds. The largest of the three though gives the woman a sharp glare before disappearing into the crowd.


Roleplay as you will before the real adventure kicks in.

For Rachel the day has been somewhat hectic. thats putting it mildly. In the wake of Oracle buying your firm and making it part of the Oracle Family you almsot thought you'd be releived of most of your duties, like many others who had their businesses brought out by large corporations.

Not so with Oracle. They came in like an earthquake and shook up your company in ways you never would have considered. They hired fresh employees, helped balance and clean up your books, and updated your systems with new equipment and tools you would have had to wait a year or more to get your hands on with the budget you had.

Not only that you found your services in high demand and with the expanded list of businesses that Oracle possesses or has contact with means you've been working almost non-stop. Fortunately the salary and perks that come with the job are more then worth it and you've always been up to the challenge.

LIke today for example, you find yourself working with a crew from your tech support division updating the software and computers of the Great Malls secruity offices. They've been having some minor issues with slower then normal systems, but you're confident that you got the problem licked as you think they picked up a virus from a poorly installed server in the multi-leveled server room.

Growing to 20 feet in height you reach over the railing and check Dave the tech whose working on the server. Your powers are still a source of fascination for you even a year after receiving them. when your dad said the old Casey Kasem line of "Keeping your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars", and your Mom told you that you'd be doing "Really Big things." You dont think being abale to grow to 60 feet in height was quite what they had in mind.

Dave smiles and gives you a thumbs up "Got it working Rachel." The big bearded bear of a man smiles broadly "That should clear it."

Dropping back down to normal height a move which never fails to amaze on-lookers you double check your own work and remain reasonably confident in its success. With a single push of a button the Great Mall's security is up and running and as the multiple screens on the wide angle plasma display with its motion sensitive and voice activated features powers up you smile in satisfaction at a job well done as the afternoon manager of the 24/7 facility shakes your hand.

"Thank you again Ms. Toliver that system error was a serious pain for us, Its been 2 weeks of one problem after another with those computers. " Carolyn Schueler the middle aged woman looks relieved as she indicates the computers.


PS Im sending you a quick correction on Rachel via PM. Otherwise Role play away.

Great Entertainers deserve a great venue and you've been invited to one of the greatest. The Great Mall of the Bay Area. The enormous Multi-Story shopping center is as incredible a venue as any Vegas showroom. The contract you sighned via your agent is an exclusive performance contract with the mall, Performing 3 shows a week and 2 shows on Saturday for a substantial sum of money. Its the break of breaks and you dont know whether you could get any luckier. They even provided you with two experienced assistants named Leslie and Vivian respecvtively. The gorgeous blond Vivian with a flourish of her black cape dances past the brunette Leslie who with a flourish and pretend smirk brandishes a wicked long sword. The sword gleams in the stage llights its lethal edge as real and as sharp as your stage wit.

As she dances back and forth like a snake she suddenly strikes driving the sword through your chest with an awful finality.

As your face goes blank, Its the end of you.

Your life over, extinguished in a moment.

Or is it?

For suddenly with a flash of flames and puff of smoke your body is replaced with a cardboard cutout that has a sword through it. Where are you? Where could you be?

Wait is that you in the front row snacking on a kids popcorn and laughing with his mom? Yes it is and the crowd roars with approval as your stunnign assistants gesture to you and the crowd sees you and goes wild.

You ascend the stage steps to the roared applause and ackowledge the crowd before engaging in your grand finale. To the masses what you do is simply miraculous amazing escapes, levitation, hypnosis, mind reading the street magicians list of tricks and more. As far as theyre concerned its all stage magic, and if you add a little bit of the real thing subtly disguised with showmanship and flair to entertain them, well all the better.

After all the show is everything, and the Show must go on.

Besides it helps take off some of the edge to perform for a crowd, its a lot safer for them to believe Magic isnt real, or is actually just super powers. After all if this crowd knew what was trully out there in the dark waiting for them they'd all likely go mad.

Almost as mad as you might have gone if you'd been left to brood about what waits for you. If Dr. Arcane hadn't found you and trained you himself, if he hadnt protected you as much from yourself as from those who didnt understand that the arm on your shoulder didnt define you.

Your actions defined you and those actions are those of a hero. A hero because you chose to be, and that as Dr. Arcane told you is the real reason your still here, and havent given into the darkness that seeks to consume you. You dont know how long you have left, but you intend to live it to the full and to make every moment count. If the demons are gonna get your soul your gonan make sure they dont take it without a fight and half.


MIndfreak!! Kris Angel who?

Hornet

Your days as a hero have lead you to one conclusion.

Your brother was nuts.

You laugh at the notion just as he would have. Before he passed on he told you often. "Lil bro, sometimes I think I must be out of my mind. chasing bad guys down when I'm 6 inches tall, and they're towering over me like Goliath over David." He looks thoughtful then cracks a big wide grin. "Then I chuck my sling stone and KAPOW!! down goes the giant." then the two of you would share a laugh.

Now flying over the city at some pretty amazing speeds at only 6 inches in height you know what he was talking about. The phrase bug on a windshield pops into your mind every now and then. But shaking it and the resultant image off with a laugh you fly on keeping an eye out for trouble. Buzzing over cars and past lightrail street cars.

And true to the form of those who go looking for trouble, you find it. A pair of dunces who think that its clear to go run into a small branch bank and wave a pistol and a shot gun around gangsta style.

If it wasnt for the fact that these morons might hurt an innocent bystander you'd laugh at the sheer stupidity displayed by the pair, waving the handguna round like that is more likely ot end up with a red hot shell in his face. The knucklehead with the shotgun waving it around most likely couldnt hit the broadside of a barn, though granted with a buckshot spread he wouldnt have to do much to hit.

Post when your ready you get a little action to start.

Green Lantern

Once upon a time if someone had told you that youd be part of a universal military orgnaization that policed the stars and that there were hudnreds upon thousands of alien species out there you'd have eithe rlaughed it off as a joke or called them nuts.

That was before a month ago when an emerald ring flew up to you and started telling you about being a hero and part of something greater. Accepting the ring was probably a spur of the moment decision but when you did you stepped out of a small world and into a world the likes of which even the prophets of science fiction themselves could never have imagined.

Fortunately for you the training of the US Army prepared you for the intensive rigorous instruction of the Corps. And you got to see and meet some very interesting people and things along the way. There was Killowog the big burly aliens gruff demeanor contrasting his bigger heart. The warrior Maiden Aleta who hailed from the planet Nadea. The only one of her people who had ever had the honor of the becoming a Green Lantern, and became your mentor and friend.

You got to know the guaridans and be stunned at the knowledg fo how trully ancient they were, as well as how much power their dimunitive forms possessed. One of them a female named Nanya seemed to take a particular interest in you and would often grant you the benefit of her ancient wisdom.

for 2 weeks you were pushed to your limits and beyond learning the rings powers and the history of the corp, then for two more weeks you went out on patrols with other senior members of the corps.

You saw the war like Atorian Empire and its legions of cloned troops, you saw the danger of the Interdimensonal Emperess of a Billion worlds, you saw the wonders of the Cosmic forge which sits at the very core of the universe; the center of the great wheel, and its protectors teh Amazing Cosmo Knights. You met the Alien Blaize beings of pure energy with amazing powers, and their cousins the Kheldians who had formed the Peacebringers and learned of their tragic history with the Nictus. You also met some Warshades renegade Nictus who had rejected the vampiric philosophy of their brothers and reembraced the symbiotic ways of their forebearers.

And all of this within a months time. You learned that not every alien monster was a terrible thing, and not every handsome species was nice. You met the mysterious Eldar, the primitive savage Orks, the dog like Canis and many others. You learned of creatures who lived in the vast waste between the stars, such as the enormous Void whales, and gentle Delar massive Jellyfish like creatures that could blot out a sun by passing in front of it.

Lastly you learned of the dangers beyond the stars. Of the threat of the ancient old ones beings lost outside in the great void beyond the stars, Alien races such as the implacable Necron, and the swarm like Tyranid. You learned of the fantical Imperium of man a race of humans who live on the literal opposite side of the universe from Earth and who use geneticaly engineered Supers soldiers to oppress their people and conduct war like crusades across the stars.

All of this and more did you learn. And all in the span of a month.

And now, now you are faced with one of the most daunting challenges you could ever face. A challenge to shake even the greatest of the Green Lantern Corp whose will is the strongest. Reayding yourself you step off the bus and look abck at your most dangerous mission ever.

Escorting 20 third graders on a trip to the Great Mall of the Bay Area to see the Aquarium.

Sweet Oa you didnt know you'd miss Aleta's training sessions so much. Fortunately your not alone as you managed to wrangle two other teachers and one of the kids moms to help. The long haired Bus driver Otto gives you a happy salute the ever present ear buds of his I-Pod sticking out of his pocket as he sways to a lively tune.

Finally you and Carry White the other third grade teachers whose class is mixed with yours for the trip, and George Baker the 6th grade teacher, along with Miss Gable whos twin children are in your class all manage to get them out of the bus and lined up. Otto takes the buss around to a parking spot where he'll wait to pick you up when youre done.

The Mall itself is a trully amazing place even for someones whose seen so many things. while it doesnt compare to the Cosmic Forge or the Prime Batteyr on OA, its still pretty darned impressive. The kids seem awed as well, and you make special notes to keep them in line and together so they dont dawdle. As you pass what apepars to be a Martial arts school you take note of a handsome asian man standing watching the class, he would not normally be of note--aside form the fact that he is handsome-- but maybe its your ring, or a sense of such things picked up from traveling the galaxy, but you get an odd sense of the man being its hard to describe.

Connected and open to the world. You find it an intriguing experience but before you can do more then run the thought through your mind you're nearly run over by three men in workers coveralls one of whom a near 7 footer gives you an intimidating glare that looks like he wants to take a swing at you for just being in his way. Its only one of his companions elbowing him in the ribs that turns him around and causes him to be lost in the crowd. Well that and little Dyllan asking if they cans top for ice cream after seeing the fishies.

A few hours later and with the kids happily munching on mccdonalds happy meals finds you with time to consider your life, and the course it has taken. Traveled the universe, met new and interesting people, become a star faring memember of an interstellar Police Corp.

Hehe not bad for a small town girl.

good luck :mrgreen:

Sword Breaker

For Kevin the last couple of days had been about as boring a last couple of days as you could posisbly imagine. Filled with training and with working the part time job you took to make ends meet, you found almsot nothing happening on your nightly patrols. Youve broken up a grand total of one mugging, and a fight between two drunks one of which passed out when you appeared, and the other of which ran face first into yoru shield knocking himself out.

The first actual action you've had came when a fellow co-worker asked you to join her for lunch, she was cute enough and friendly but you didnt see anything really happening with Allison, she wasnt really your type, still you had the time so why not. What you didnt expect was to be dragged to the Great Mall of the Bay Area of all places. Nor to be dragged around shopping.

You did use it as an excuse to people watch and at least got some action when some twit decided to pick a guys pocket right in front of you. He was lucky, you only broke his forefinger after he promised to return the wallet and turn himself over to the cops who thanked you for your help.

It was a change of pace from the last couple of days at least. You saw other things on your march around the enormous shopping area. The roller coaster of the theme park Astro Land, A harried red head leading a bunch of third graders into the aquarium, and later that same red head eating at the MCcdonalds you stopped at for a quick snack.

There was even time to take in a Magic show by a guy who had an incredible knack for sleight of hand, you caught a couple of small errors but the guys assistants and the Magician himself were professionals through and through and just rolled right through the errors as if they were part of the show.

All in all you were having a good timemore then you could have bet, but something was itching at your mind. It was enough to distract you from the fact that while she wasnt your type Allison did look very nice in that dress. Maybe it was an isntinct honed through your training, or the ability to recognize someone like you but when the guy in the coveralls with the toolbox passed you as you left the show and were eating the ice cream you got from MCCY Ds something in his gaze just made your hair stand on end, and set off that little alarm. You didnt have time to think as one of the little ones from the group of thirds graders started poking around in the bag from which you carried your shield and uniform.

"Hey mister whats in there." the pint sized little girl asked with that bright curiosity that a little one ehr age possesses.


All your to roleplay for a bit

the real action kicks in soon.

Kris Majax

Kris sits back in the chair of his dressing room after the show covered only by a wet towel. He didn't remember the schedule being so grueling. Of course, he didn't spend seven hours researching a magical disease to save a six year old girl from becoming a Thorlock Demon's incubator the night before a gig either.

He counts himself extra lucky. Vivian and Leslie truly were pros. He made three mistakes this last show, but without missing a beat, the ladies covered it up and never said a word to him afterwards.

Even scoring this gig is incredible. After his accident and "recovery", he had to beg and plead with his old agent to even get a meeting. Everyone assumed when he showed back up with both arms, that the whole thing was a stunt. And all that sympathy he gained from those in the industry and his fans quickly turned on him. Before this, he had been stuck taking jobs in dives and hotel lounges. When his agent called him up with this dream gig, he couldn't believe it.

In fact, he almost turned it down. Surely there is a catch. When he told Dr. Arcane his intentions to avoid what was "clearly a trap," his mentor gave him one of his standard answers, "Hmm, interesting." Kris had learned the hard way when Dr. Arcane said that, he was really saying "You are making a mistake."

Changing into a pair if jeans and a polo, Kris decides to tour the mall. He has been here over a week, and he hasn't set one foot outside the dressing room or stage. He knows he really should go over that last trick a few times before the show this evening, but he really needs a break. Having two jobs is still a bit daunting, but when you are Kris Majax, people expect miracles.

Johnny Liang

I’ve moved the school to a mall. Johnny thought to himself not for the first time. He could feel the one all around him here, with so many people it was probably one of the strongest location to teach in that any Master of the Liang school had ever had but it was a mall. He stood outside of the school, his home, and watched through the glass as Brother Quinn walked a group of students through the basic Wing Chun patterns. I don’t know if my father would approve. Hell I don’t know if I approve.

He stood barefoot on the tiled floor of the mall and could feel the crowd flowing around him, he was a stone sitting in the middle of the river of the one. Of course the large group of kids was hard to miss, they popped him out of his own head almost immediately, he could certainly sympathize with the young teacher they were hauling around with them. The workers that elbowed their way through the crowds weren’t completely out of place. Since the Mall had opened one store or another was always remodeling or under construction and there were always plenty of workers around, he’d shared lunch with a few of them a few weeks back, but they were usually a lot more polite then this group.

“Excuse me Miss.” Johnny calls out to the teacher. “You should take your students to my schools Garden. It’s quite lovely.” He walked towards the teacher and the group of kids. “I’m Johnny Liang.” He smiled to the students. “This is quite a group.”

Kris Majax

Well if Kris was looking for a relaxing stroll through the mall, the fates were against him. Some school teachers had decided to take their class to the mall for a field trip. The only field trip Kris had gone on growing up was to the newspaper. A newspaper which was lucky to print 5 pages on Sunday, including the full page ad for the grocery store.

So Kris didn't make it two feet into the food court before one of the kids spotted him and suddenly he is surrounded by more than a dozen kids clamoring for tricks. Fortunately, this is something Kris is used to, so he always carries a couple decks of cards and some other tricks. Determined to make this the best part of the field trip for the kids, Kris puts on an impromtu show for them. The tricks are simple enough, and many of the adults have probably seen them dozens of time, but Kris adds lots of flare and the kids are captivated. Between their Happy Meal toys and a real live magician, there was no contest.

Green Lantern

Oh for the soft and quiet joy of lunchtime. Forget nourishment. Forget a refreshing beverage. Heck, forget about a chance to socialize with adults. Best part of lunch is the brief pause in-between lessons where I can just stop and catch my breath. I love the little ankle biters, but even one of them can be a handful once they get good and worked up. And there’s next to nothing which can excite a bunch of children like a fieldtrip. Heck, I wouldn’t be surprised if you couldn’t build a power battery with the combined energy of eager kids.

Munching on an apple, and trying to not think about how much of a stereotype it is for me to be doing so, I stretch my legs out, knowing there still a few more hours of walking before were back on the bus. I’ve been spoiled by zero gravity and flight, and now my feet are complaining about good old terra firma. Might need to invest in some new shoes, something with a bit more arch support. Sliding one foot free, I give my toes a good flex. As I do so, I spot another pair of bare feet joining my own. Following the legs upwards, I find them attached to a young gentleman. A moment passes before the bulb goes off, reminding me that he’s the same face I spotted through the window on the martial arts school that we passed earlier.

“Excuse me Miss. You should take your students to my schools Garden. It’s quite lovely.”


I nod. That actually sounds rather nice. Certainly better than then the food court. Of course, I’d feel terrible if they did any damage to the gardens, which seemed more than likely. Lunchtime might be a calm within the day, but even it wasn’t immune to sudden squalls and turbulence. “That sounds like a lovely idea Mister…?”

“I’m Johnny Liang.”


“Mister Liang. I’d hate to decline such a generious offer” I find myself interrupted by a sudden squeal of delight from my kids, who all rush over to a well dressed gentleman. I recognize him from a poster that was on display, though not much beyond that. I think he’s supposed to be some kind of magician or something. As I watch, he performs several feats of legerdemain, all of which produces cries of shock and amazement from the children, even getting a smile out of me. “But” I finally say, returning my attention to Mister. Liang after several minutes of watching the performance. “My students already seem quite enthralled, and I doubt they’d be willing to follow along to your gardens without a fight at this point. But still, I appreciate the offer.” I extend my hand, taking care to recall not to offer my ring hand. Kilowog practically made that a force of habit, drilling the point into my head. “Ashley McAdams. A pleasure to meet you Mister Liang.”

[Kirk McGlothlin]
HP: 3


Behind the visor that was his mask Kirk rolled his eyes at the duo's method of crime and just kind of shook his head. What is it with kids these days? But he pushes the thoughts out of his mind as he zooms in through the closing door, hugging close to the ceiling to avoid getting stepped on (cause THAT would be way embaressing) and watched as the pair pointed their weapons at various bystanders who'd been unlucky enough to do their banking here today, waiting for the right moment.

Which came quickly, as the two teens had finally managed to get the people in the lobby quieted down so they could be forced to listen to their demands.

So he spoke up just before they could start, which always throws robbers off their pace as they scanned the room for the owner of the voice and found themselves staring at the man lowering himself down from above that was only a few inches tall. DMX has sooooo much to answer for driving you two deep thinkers to such desperate measures guys but I'll make you a deal - give up now and put the guns away and wait for the cops or I'm gonna have to really embaress the both of you in front of all these nice people. Kirk looks from one teen to the other as he makes his offer, showing a friendly (as well as a nice and white) smile. "Cause think about how much street cred you'll have after you get your butts handed to you by a guy that's not even a foot tall?"

The two thugs look back and forth fratically for the source of the tiny voice mocking them, and their street lifestyle. One of them the one with the pistol looks right at you and past you no less then three time before his teeny tiny mind actually reigsters the tiny armored figure before him.

Your word shake the two of them to the core but unfortunately they respond in the typical fashion of those not bright enough to realize that theyre out classed, out gunned, out smarted, and waaaaaaay out of their league.

"Holly &*%T JZ get him!!" Dx the one with the pistol shouts that ageless battle cry of the thug set. They shoot.

They shoot badly and miss by a mile as you weave smartly though bullets and buckshot patterns.




yeah no way they beat that in their wildest dreams both are badly shaken, just not bright enough to do the smart thing and give up or run.

Their attack rolls 13 and 12 respectively dont come anywhere near you at your size.

Initiative is moot you've got the drop on them no sweat.

You are welcome Miss Schueler always good to have work these days, my company thanks you for using us to fix the problems you have been having. How about we have lunch and talk some about how the problem cropped up Rachel ask.



ooc is something wrong with the character?


"Sounds like a wonderful idea, we'll hit the food court ont he way down, and I'll show you the Malls pride and joy while you're here." She responds with a happy smile and a hand shake. She leads you to the elevators that go down the Malls central tower where all its offices and most of the malls control systems are situated. As the doors open 3 men in coveralls exit lead by a very attractive young woman who smiles at you while the three men look gruff and surly and give you an unpleasant air.

"That's odd..." Carolyn muses, "I wasnt aware of any renovation in the office tower today." the elevator doors close though before she can give it any more thought and she shrugs and as you descend the 3 stories to the main floor she points out to the open air atrium that surrounds the central area of the mall. A breath taking sight as it contains an almost literal crossroads of culture and people.

After a quick lunch at one of the innumerbale restaurants in the malls multi leveled food court where you discuss things with the mall and some of the tech issues theyve been having, she takes you down to the 2 sub-levels below the upper 4 . These levels are sealed off from the public for a couple of reasons. Theyre primarily used by store personel for storage, lockers, clean up and the like, as well as having a lot of store inventory and the loading docks, and the almost airport like terminal for the BART trains that run constantly in and out of the mall.

LAstly though she shows you something that nearly blows your mind. You've read about it and even worked on some of the programming for the prototype. But youve never seen one in person before.

The malls pride and joy as it turns out is a miniaturized Micro-Arc reactor. Miniaturized because in this case its only the size of an moving van instead of a small house. Still the Micro-Arc reactor is a marvel of the modern world. Bay City currently has 2 full sized one splitting the power needs of the city between them. That the mall has one means not only does it have enough electricity to run 24/7 but it does so at a profit given that the reactor more likely generates far more energy then they would ever need, even during the holliday rushes.


Quick check give me a Knowledge technology, and a Notice check.
