<<If the tree is too heavy I'm sure you can break it up into smaller pieces that are easier to move.>>

"I'll go ahead and clear the way. There might be some collisions or people in distress, so you should follow."

LDM looked over at Lotus and Galatea as he opened the passenger door of the van. While it was still moving. Then once he had finished talking Bradley jumped out of the van trusting in N'KIE to keep him from splattering against the sidewalk, and carry them both to the site of the accident mentioned on the radio.

<<Oh, of course.>> N'KIE says, glad to have programmatical conflict resolved.

The suit engages a motive field and air distorts underneath and around Bradley lifting him into the air.

LDM, N'KIE

Reaching the street you see a very large tree has fallen directly across the road. The tree itself looks old and dead, the strong wind was likely too much for its roots to handle. A long line of cars is backed up behind it, with a few police directing the detour and turn around process. There are a few men with axes standing around it, chopping into it. It is most likely too wet and slick out to use chainsaws safely. To prove this, as you watch one of the men slips and his axe goes flying.

Bradley and N'KIE come flying into the scene over a building. Landing on the opposite side of the tree as the traffic he takes stalk of the scene before pointing a hand at the tree.

<<Go ahead and cut it up, then begin moving it.>>

"Get back."

LDM's eerie voice called out to the men with axes. He then coordinated his hand movement's with N'KIE's actions. Pointing at areas for the intelligent suit to cut up, then waving his other hand when it came time to move the cut up portions of the large tree.

N'KIE let's loose with a modified tractor beam meant to rip up the old wood.

attack (1d20+10=19) attacking an object, if it hits, it counts as a crit, DC 25+5, I think.


Then the Suit's Motive field kicks on at full force to clear broken the tree from the road.

Fly, not that it matters now as the first adventure is over, in response to your ? Next to HP I think you did have 2. I do not remember you using the one you got for your initiative complication against Jeremy.


LDM, N'KIE

You are easily able to clear away the tree in a matter of 5 minutes, just as the van gets there. You direct the assembled cars which way to go and inform the police which way they should be sending people in the area before heading there yourself.

All

The storm clears after a day and people are allowed back into the city, those who no longer have a home to return to, and there are actually very few of these, are put up in local hotels by the city. The news reports that damages could have been much worse considering the size of the storm and its early power. One story concerns you, calling you an as of yet unnamed team of heroes who helped many people get to safety who the media hopes to talk tothe soon, and another interests and concerns you. During the storm power was briefly lost at Blackmist Prison and 8 high level prisoners escaped and 5 guards and another prisoner were left in critical condition trying to stop them, though no names or pseudonyms are being released.

Everyone earns 2 pp for this adventure. The mini adventures will begin in the morning, I still have some stating to do.

Mini Adventures 1- Reconstruction Adventures

The storm is two days passed and the reconstruction of damaged areas has begun.

Galatea

The media contacted you shortly after returning to the city. You, being the only one on the team with a listed phone number and an attractive female, have been asked to appear at a press conference and meet and greet outside of city hall to discuss your team and accept the mayors blessing as the city's official team of Super Heroes. You are now sitting across from Kelly Niris of the Sapphire News Network. "So, Galatea, everyone has heard by now of all the help you gave during the night of the storm but noone knows what to call you as a team. What do you call yourselves?"

LDM, N'KIE

You are sitting in the third row of spectators outside city hall in civilian garb, keeping an eye out for any problems. Make a notice check please.

The Illustrator

You received a commission from a local newspaper to do sketches of the heroes and came to the event for a closer look at Galatea. You can also make a notice.

Akh

You are with Ib and her class at the event as well. She is convinced that the two of you should try for membership as you almost where before she got called home to prepare for the storm. As can you.

Lotus

You are not at the event but instead deep in the bowls of Blackmist Island in the medical ward. Jeremy was the prisoner who tried to stop the escapees and is in critical condition and you have decided to check and see how he is doing. He is lying on a cot hooked up to life support with medics scrambling around him. The prison warden is standing beside you, "His first day and this happens? If this is a scam he is a damn good actor or got screwed over bad. We are looking into it but it is unlikely he made contacts that quickly." He seems confused by this, like the idea of a criminal reforming is odd to him.

Galatea:

It really had been hectic the past couple days with Galatea busy helping out with disaster relief efforts such as assisting people trapped in traffic jams, delivering medical supplies and most of all, preventing looters from having a field day throughout the Cove since the storm's aftermath. The recent breakout at Blackmist prison ticked her off as well but in her own defense she was much too busy to focus all of her attention on the event to deal with it.

Now this... Galatea tried not to get nervous as she greeted the newscaster. Luckily she maintained control and didn't transform into stone just then.

Oh, god. I feel like i'm under a microscope again but this time with these guys in public instead inside a laboratory. Maybe i should do my Brenda Vaccarro voice. Heh no, i get enough hate mail as it is without adding tramp to the list of bad reputations i've collected.

Buck up, here we go.


"Well Kelly." she answered in her calmest and most casual tone possible. "My associates and me had talked about that at length. Ironically as it was the weird storm that brought us together, we decided on the name of:

Image"

Actually it wasn't the entire truth as she never really discussed the subject with the others at all but figured she had to say something otherwise the media would come up with a dumb name on their own.

Knowing them, it will be something kinky.

Shameless plug of logo. Can't help it. :P :lol:

They had all been busy in the days following the storm. But when Bradley heard about the breakout at prison, he got in touch with some of his contacts and tried to find out exactly who had escaped. LDM had a system for contacting his informants without even meeting face to face. Some of them were coerced, and deep inside criminal elements. Deep enough that he should be able to get some useful information on the people themselves, and work up psychological profiles on them.

OOC wrote:LDM can use Intimidate in place of Gather Information. Using Skill Mastery he'll take 10 for a result of 29. He also has the Contacts Feat, so he can do that pretty quickly.

If he gets the identities, LDM will use Knowledge[Behavioral Sciences] to try and work up a psychological profile on them. Skill Mastery to take 10 on that as well. Result would be 20. The MO's, habits, and any noteworthy personality traits would be helpful.


Bradley sat liesurely in the stands. His head panned from let to right, eye eyes always moving. Never idle. Every so often he glanced over at Galatea. A bit like a parent making sure their kick wasn't beating up other kids in the playground. But other than keeping alert for possible problems, Bradley projected a relaxed demeanor.

N'KIE

N'KIE wanted to copy an outfit from a magazine on golf but Bradley overridded the choice.

N'KIE kept her scanners peeled and monitored radio bands.

Randy Anderson
HP = 1, Condition = Fine


Randy had tried to justify coming here to himself. He'd held his head high among his friends, talking nonsense about trying out a new style in a low-brow job, and how money was money etc. The fact was he didn't really need the cash, and he was always happy to take any job that allowed him to draw or paint, especially when the subjects were as interesting as these heroes!

And that was it right there. Heroes.

Since he'd gained his abilities Randy somehow felt he was squandering them. They'd helped his career immensely but there was always that little bit at the back of his head that said "...but what else?". Hearing about the heroics of this, Storm Guard whas-it she said?, he'd felt compelled to come along and see them. He'd wondered if maybe, just maybe, he could help...

Great first roll, although I'm sure that doesn't bode well for the rest of them...

Hopefully Zen and BE can post soon


LDM

Black Diamond- Ice controller A gimic villain, one of the last remaining. Often steals diamonds but has been know to 'Ice' someone on occasion.
Nightshade- An extreme environmentalist with plant powers and DNA. An apt user of poison, science, and seduction in equal measure. Often a scientist employed by crime boss types.
Steel Talon- An assassin for hire and master swordsman. He has no plans of his own besides his next paycheck and anyone could be his target as long as they can meet his steep prices.
Dark Prophet- A powerful mystic who claims an earth ruled by a powerful, single ruler is the only way for humanity to survive a great disaster in the future. He often targets heroes and government officials as they are the clearest of threats to villains who he believes could be the ruler.
Nirvana Shadow- A student of the dark zen philosophy that no universe is a perfect universe who aims to achieve it. His powers are pure entropy and he has been known to strike without any conceivable cause except chaos, though many believe there is a cause that no one has figured out yet.


So far this is all any of your informants have been able to get to you on the escaped prisoners and you are not convinced that this is all of them. On a more immediate note you see that a few of the people around you are armed, heavily in some cases. The heaviest weapon in the crowd is the miniaturized grenade launcher disguised as a professional grade video camera, a camera pointed right at Galatea and the newswoman.

N'KIE

There is a lot of chatter in the area as many people are on their cell phones and other devices in this area but you keep an 'ear' out for more heavily protected signals and are able to find one connecting a nearby cameraman and a rooftop about a block and a half away.

The Illustrator

You feel great being here but something seems off. Looking around you see some people that are standing in a way that, if you were painting this scene, they should not be standing. A few of them seem to have something hidden and at one point you see what looks like the wicked gleam of a concealed knife. Worse you can tell that the camera of the cameraman in front of you is not a camera at all but you cannot tell what is being disguised.

Galatea

"Well, that certainly is an apt name" the reporter laughs "Your team has been doing a wonderful job in helping with the reconstruction of the city so far. Some people are questioning, though, how effective just three people, even you three, can be to put a stop to the crime that has been on the rise in our city. The protectors have ten full time members and close to thirty that they can call on if necessary, what do you have to say to that?"

Galatea:

You got me there, toots. Galatea thought. Come on, come on. These bottom feeders are looking for any excuse to get more ratings. Think of something.

"Well, i don't really think that the number of members in any superhero team are necessary in order to be effective. Quality over quantity after all although i have nothing against large scale groups like the Protectors.

We must do what we can with what limited resources we do happen to have at our disposal and thus the StormGuard are more than willing to cooperate with the authorities and any superhuman whether they are loners or part of a existing team to assist them."

Take that, Kelly Whatsyourrname.

<<... and the cameraman has a grenade launcher aimed at Galatea.>>

Bradley commented after N'KIE alerted him to the there being a radio link to someone on a rooftop. Pulling out his burner phone he punched in a text message and sent it off to the one he'd given Galatea.

Weapons in crowd. Grenade launcher in camera aimed at you. Checking possible danger on roof.

After sending the message Bradley tucked the phone into his pocket and began to move away from the crowd. He needed to find some place with no eyes on it where N'KIE could change into his LDM visage.

<<I've alerted Galatea to the danger in the crowd. Lets look into that signal on the roof.>>

Once they changed into costume LDM used urban obstruction and shadow to conceal himself and N'KIE as he made his way to the rooftop N'KIE indicated earlier.
