Spartan doesn't specifically have an impulsive Complication. To my way of thinking though, a Complication is what happens when you play your character to his personality, even when it isn't in his best interests. To me, this feels like "Classic Spartan Behaviour" and it's not in his best interests. Score a Hero Point, Gazman.
Once inside the house, you can see Marble Knight's stone wheel lying in the wreckage of the door you kicked in and the closet door across from you. There is a half-flight of stairs off to your left that opens into a dark hallway. A matching set of stairs to your right that opens up into what you know to be the living room. The purple glow is coming from there. "Ha ha ha haaaaaa!"
When the mocking laughter rings out, you find yourself charging up the stairs and into the living room.Deje, L'Char, Marble Knight, Matrix, Wildfire
Quickly scrambling into position, everyone places a hand on Deje, and starts into the house. The illusionary Saints are only a few steps behind Spartan, although their actual counterparts are moving slow and keeping formation. The stairs make things tricky for you. By the time you are half up the short landing, you have a decent sight into the living room.
Laid along the wall, below the window you can see the satellite. It is resting on a trio of metal stands and draped in a clear plastic sheet. It is dark and doesn't appear to be doing anything. There are a few wooden crates in the room, at a glance you'd say they're 4' cubes. The living room meets the dining room in an L-shape, and there is a short one-step dais separating the two. Spartan has stopped at the end of the living room, and turned to face the dais. Shuffling as quickly as possible, the rest of the Saints move to one side, so they can see into the dining room.Dr. Zero
On the raised dais in the dining room sits what can only be described as a throne. It's a huge chair with a sprawling base. Sitting in the chair must be your nemesis, Dr. Zero!
His body seems entirely metal; some of it is cyborg and some of it is armour. The metal is a dark purple alloy. The face that regards Spartan, as well as the illusory Saints that are now flanking him is a human one.
To Dr. Zero's left sits some sort of computer (?
). The monitor is supported by an very intricate, and probably (hopefully) non-functional array of structures, cables and lights. Most of the parts seem to plug into a large, metal egg-shaped base. The monitor is tilted towards you and you can clearly see it is working at a rapid pace. The screen shows a mathematical equation of fantastical complexity. As it works through proofs the amount of text on the screen becomes smaller in amount, but larger in font, until only a large zero
remains. It is when the equation reaches its terminal point that L'Char's sense of Cosmic Wrongness twinges. The font of the equation is purple, and it is this device that is providing the dim light in the room.
There is a dramatic pause as you take in the mad Doctor, and he in turn takes your measure. And then he begins."Well then, Cretins. As you can see I have my Zero Sum Equation."
He gestures towards the odd computer. "I also have a satellite capable of transmitting my Zero Sum Equation to every electronically receptive device in the World."
with his other hand, he indicates the satellite that you tracked him here to recover."Hmm."
He rests his hands on the armrests of his throne, and briefly taps one impatient finger."What appears to be missing here, is a rocket capable of launching my Satellite into Orbit where it could transmit my Equation.
He leans back in his chair, and spreads his arms wide in apparent dismay. "I paid good money for a rocket, and there is no rocket. Screwed again, by greedy incompetents. How sad...""...but executing all of you will provide fleeting relief to my melancholia."
