The official Mutants & Masterminds boards
OOC: AoA 5 on the disarm attack, taking 10 against what's likely to be a minion. Roll if the target isn't. Disarm check: (1d20+10=24) will probably be enough.
Note to everyone, Freedom's Avengers were not whom they were ready for, and their plans to set-up a senerio that would make the Freedom League (but most expessially, the second Raven) look bad. They are still going with what their plan was and doing what they can to make the Freedom's Avengers look really bad.
it's why the weapons the crowd themselves were equipped with non-military grade weapons and equipment. Some where armed with stolen police issue weapons and gear. Everything else was accured via surplus stores and the internet.
The really nasty stuff that was suppose to come later, using mlitary grade wapons that had been 'liberated' frm a national guard armory was to have happened during the second day of the riot that was suppose to come out as a respone to what happened here at the school.
All this can be learned if Woman-in-Black was able to do a mind read on the mercs before their vests went boom. I'd be a DC16 check, and i would do it myself, but not sure what other methods she coul use since i dont know the character build readily for it.
While Woman-in-Black is down, Walking Dad's Martian will hopefully be more than enough to handle psychic investgiations and communications...
OOC: Crush injury, of course, is the sudden release of pent-up toxins when you remove a crushing object off of a limb. It's a major cause of death in people being recovered from fallen buildings. And yes, Xerxes is being mildly insufferable in assuming everyone knows about it.
OOC: Is there anything left to do in gameplay terms here, or are we just playing our characters until end of scene?
OOC: Diplomacy, Sense Motive: (1d20+1=20, 1d20+13=27) ^_^
By the by, I'm assuming that my attempts to contact Freedom League and our homebase before just hit an answering service? Or that the transmissions were still being blocked?
