Cyborg
Character Sheet- HP 2 - Condition: normal

Cyborg mentally shrugs at the amazon's suggestion to concentrate on just one foe. Acting before an ally can jump into his line of fire, his sensor unit restructures itself to a wide angle blaster. Noting the weather and environmental effect around him, he uses a combined infrared and microwave blast.

Array: Widespread Multi Frequency Blaster
Cone Damage 9 (toughness DC 24) with the heat descriptor, trying to catch all three enemies without including allies. DC 19 dodge save to reduce toughness DC to 20.

Array: Widespread Multi Frequency Blaster

Captain Steve Rogers
Hero Points: Two
Condition: Rock & Roll.

Rogers assessed the situation, the Major was charging towards the skeletal mystic, at the same time as the Spider was reaching for her staff. The cold was rolling off of blue skinned woman in waves, whereas Cythonna stood regally back surveying the scene.

It made sense that something was amping up her cold abilities, thing is you kill the engine it doesn't matter how much gas you give it. That settled it, the ice queen had to go down.

"Alright people, lets focus on the ice augment, and separate Cythonna from her guard."

With that Rogers charged straight at Cythonna's guard, the skull faced woman. Leaping into the air he tucked into a tight ball, hand sprung over her, and expanded planting his fight on her shoulders to propel him forward towards the augment. He slid to a stop just past her, his right hand raising to his visor letting out a brilliant flash of energy, the blast gave off no sound, but a deep thrum and vibration echoed through the room. The crimson flash engulfed the augment, then just as quickly, Rogers snapped his head to his left and threw a quick glare and a short burst towards the green garbed Cythonna.

OOC: Ok, tricky action, we'll see if it pays off. Favored Environment Core Earth Bonus shifted to Accuracy +2. Extra Effort coupled with Extraordinary Effort grants Rogers two additional Standard Actions, Exhausted at beginning of next turn. Move action towards and over Skeletorette, Standard Action to hit her with Acrobatic Feint (Feint) & use Set Up to confer Vulnerable to the Major, All Out Attack +5 Accuracy /-5 Active Defense and Power Attack -5 Accuracy /+5 Effect on Rogers Focused Blast for net total of +10 (+2 circumstance: Favored Environ) Accuracy, DC 32, Dodge / Parry 6 against the Augment. Free Action switch array to Axiomatic Backlash. Third Standard Action against Cythorra with the same modifiers of All Out & Power Attack my Backlash +14 Accuracy (+2 circumstance from Favored Environ) for DC 28 damage, and linked Move Object 8 to blow her through a wall.

Rolls:

Acrobatic Feint vs Skeletorette (1d20+9=19) Her Acrobatics or Insight vs DC 19 or Vulnerable to Major's attack.

All Out full & Power Attack Full with Focused Axiom vs Augment (1d20+10=25) Toughness DC 32 if that hits.

All Out full & Power Attack full with Axiomatic Backlash vs Cythorra (1d20+12=15) Which looks like a miss, but DC 28 Toughness & DC 23 Strength check to avoid the move object throwback.

Nordic Paradigm- Round 1
Dimensional Anchors = cold adaptation, sure footed (limited to ice)

Karen receives a garbled message. Apparently her anchor stabilizes her but has a limited radius of effectiveness. The message through her comm sounds like a cell phone in high winds.

"... ent... Pinprick hole in shie... beyond everything covered... ice... trying to... help... hole expanding...

Meanwhile Spider lets his webbing fly despite the woman's comeback... and.. connects ! She finds herself struggling to hold onto her staff.

Opposed Strength check - Opposed strength check (1d20=20) - she hangs on.


Spider finds himself pulled off the ground, hurtling towards the ceiling but is able to recover easily and right himself safely.

Rebis proceeds unbothered as sie forms her weapon.

The woman addressed as Cythonna is more alert than her minion, she raises her staff to blast at Amazon, but the energy instead comes from her other hand! Blue light arcs through the air to the patriotically clad warrior,



The energy blast washes over the hero, but to the surprise of the green-clad sorceress, nothing happens!

Stone ignores the suggestion of Rogers and attempt to blast all three targets. Thankfully, no one had closed yet. Cythonna seemingly winks out of existence and reappears once the beam passes. Skulld takes a less fancy tactic, but is equally unharmed. Lincoln, however, takes the attack full on, the heat beam washing over her blue skin. She seems content as her skin returns to a normal human color for just a moment before returning to its icy blue. Cyborg`s sensors register another drop in temperature of close to 3 degrees Celsius in the area, Cythonna smiles.

Cyborg take a HP


Rogers springs into action. Although Skulld completely focuses on the captain, with the web line snapping, she still staggers back a half step from the powerful blow. Cythonna`s smile evaporates into nothingness as she is thrown backwards like so much trash on Rogers` follow up! Skulld instinctively turns towards her master, leaving her wide open for Amazon - just like Rogers planned.

Both of the baddies are at -1. Although Amazon declared going after Skulld and I indicated resolution tonight, I will still leave Amazon the chance to post an action.

Beetle left off pending a PM.

Amazon

Diana had fully intended to lasso Skulld's staff, but when Spidey thwipped it instead, she hesitated hoping her young teammate would succeed. And then Captain Rogers set Skulld so nicely for a whomping, how could she not take the shot?

Amazon roars up behind the distracted Skulld, and drops her with a Bulldog.
Power Attack +/- 2 (1d20+6=11)
I'm not sure exactly how badly Skulld's defense suffers from Cyclops' maneuver. If that misses, I'll burn a hero point to reroll: HP Reroll, if necessary (1d20+6=18). DC29 damage

Nordic Paradigm- Round 1
Dimensional Anchors = cold adaptation, sure footed (limited to ice)

Skulld drops to the ground, her staff falling from her hand with Spider`s webs still clinging in slight wisps. A loan moan of pain escapes her lips - or teeth rather.

Lincoln still looks dazed and takes no action against the group. The temperature continues to drop in the immediate area.

Cythonna lets loose a second blast to no effect again. Amazon is just too tough!

Ambush Beetle finally clears the stairs, heaving just slightly from the exertion. He managed to avoid whatever was skittering down the walls.

Karen is able to make out more of the message from Colonel Kent - the invading paradigm is outside the shields with a pinprick entry that is focusing on the three women.

American Amazon

Skulld felt almost... crunchy beneath her, and Diana could tell that she was out of the fight -at the very least. She rolled to her feat, and brought her cyber-coil into her gauntlets. She felt the device come on line, and form a lasso as she needed.

With a deft hand that may have roped a calf or three-hundred, Diana loosed the weapon at Lincoln.
Lariat/Cyber Coil attack (1d20+10=20)
Affliction 10 (Physical, Feat: Extended Reach 2; Quirk: Can be Resisted by better of Dodge or Fortitude, Hindered/Immobile/Paralyzed) {Linked}

Cyborg
Character Sheet- HP 3 - Condition: normal

Cyborg frowns with his "good" side. The blast isn't working as planed and the surrounding tech is already on their side. Time to get his hands dirty. Good thing he doesn't mind to do it!

A big jump brings him in reach of the horned-helm woman and his arm pneumatics work perfectly delivering a hail of punch in seconds and still give him a chance to try a hold.

Free: Change array
Move: jump into melee with Loki- female
Standard: Unarmed Multi Power Attack 2 (1d20+11=28) hits parry 28 (critical!) for a DC 29 Toughness check (maybe higher with degrees of success)
Free: Grab (str) check (1d20+7=18)
not sure this is modified by the power attack and crit

Array: Pneumatic Punch Accelerator

Note: If the target is out or not possible to reach, change the target to Lincoln instead.

Spider
HP: 1
Condition: Normal

Perception vs DC 25:
1d20+6=9
Nope.


"Aw, why did you have to go and do that?" Spider expressed mock disappointment as American Amazon dropped Skulld with a single blow. "We were about to have some friendly banter. I was going to say something witty like, 'I've got a bone to pick with you!'"

The young Augment leaped towards Cythonna, who had just fired a second ineffective magical blast at the Major. "Hey, that doesn't seem to be working out for you. Why don't you try this spell? Um... Annataz si gniog ot eus em rof siht!" he blurted out something incoherent before he shot some webs to try hold her down.

Move Action to leap closer towards Cythonna. Standard Action to use Web Snare (Affliction 8) on her.
Attack check:
1d20+12=25

Rebis
HP: 1 Condition: upon firing, fatigued

Rebis widened hir stance and lined up a shot, along the length of hir arm and the newly created device, at Lincoln. Hir breathing slowed, and mind quieted to a meditative state as hir own energies flowed out to power up the exotic matter within the strange barbed rod. Part-way througha measure exhale a beam of searingly bright energy of no color belonging to the normal spectrum lashed out toward the seemingly dazed enemy.

Captain Steve Rogers
Hero Points: 2.
Condition: Exhausted.

An augment who can control the temperature, a micro paradigm incursion centered on these three women. It seemed the wisest course of action to take Lincoln out of the equation. Chest still heaving from the exertion of channeling the paradox axiom, Rogers centered his blast on the woman.

Watching the weird otherworldly energy wash over the woman, he timed his own release of focused energy to coincide with Rebis' attack against her. Running forward in a baseball slide across the floor Rogers angled the blast up to clip her chin, like a boxer would throw an uppercut. Concerned how she was unfazed by his previous blast, Rogers held the aperture open as long as he dared hoping the combined energies would incapacitate her.

OOC: Doubtful it will affect her much seeing as she ignored a DC 32 blast last time, but will try again and maybe hope for a critical. So here goes. Hero Point to reduce Fatigue from my Extraordinary Effort last round, reducing my Exhausted state to just Fatigued. Delaying my Attack to Coincide with Rebis' (In case her Nullify decreases Lincoln's Toughness.) All Out Attack & Power Attack Full. Favored Environment: Core Earth into a +2 Attack Bonus. For a total of +10 Accuracy DC: 32 Toughness against Lincoln. +2 Circumstance (Favored Environment); +5 Accuracy (All Out Attack); -5 Accuracy (Power Attack); +5 DC (Total DC: 32); -5 Active Defenses (1d20+10=23)

Starrware Tower - Nordic Paradigm

It must have seemed almost comical.

Three seemingly powerful looking beings, one of which an Augment, and they were falling like tenpins. As Skulld twitched from her prone position though, Lincoln continued to cause the temperature to drop. Even through the protections of your Dimensional Anchors, you were beginning to feel the cold.

Initiative wrote:Spider 26
Rebis 19
Cythonna 17
Skuld 14
Cyborg 13
Lincoln 12
Karen 11
Rogers 9
Amazon 3


Spider lets loose with his webbing, determined to make a better show of things than with his efforts to remove Skulld's staff. He snares the woman even as he makes a witty comment, the woman's staff clattering to the ground as her arms are pinned to her sides.

Rebis moves to tackle the remaining threat, hir ploy actually more successful than sie might have expected. Lincoln is a rather easy target, her dazedness making her reaction time slow. Whereas Stone's energy attack had no effect before, Rebis finds that s/he has far more effect than s/he might have expected - Lincoln screams in pain as her cold is leached away. The room instantly feels at least three degrees warmer, but that could be psychological...

Cythonna fixes Spider with a look that could, well, freeze water... Taking advantage of the moment, Stone steps in and hammers on the green-clad woman. His might fists driving into her armour and it cracks and splinters in multiple places, the effects obvious as her icy beauty is cracked with expressions of pain.

"Tropelet." She says, and the last thing any of you see of Cythonna is her sneer of contempt... followed by a bemused smile towards Spider. There is a popping sound, and the horn-helmed would be invader is gone - web snare, cracked armor and all.

Karen had paused a little, trying to clear the static from the signal when Kent's voice came in clearly.

"Whatever you are doing keep it up! The shield is restabalizing. We might even make it home for lunch on this one!

Rogers efforts, undaunted by the strength and resolve displayed toward his last attack, moved in tandem with Rebis, perhaps augmenting the latter's attack. In any event, the two pronged attack was more than successful. The confusion gone from her eyes, she staggers back from the force of the two pronged attack and falls to her knees. Lincoln finds herself snared by Amazon's coil. She makes a half hearted attempt to struggle, grasping at the coil. The device goes deathly cold in the patriotic hero's grip but she ignores it.

A new greenclad individual, panting heavily, enters the scene. He's making no effort to attack, survey or join in the fight. He seems to be trying to catch his breath and regain his composure. There are traces of nordic influence on his clothing.

Karen
HP 2/5


Walking Dad wrote:"Cap, there is a new one! Friendly or new papa?"


"Sort it out later!" Karen responded. Which was really a nice way of saying 'Why the hell would this be a friendly that none of us has been briefed upon. Her swarm flowed through the laboratory, encircling the intruders,acting under Karens Direction. One atom at a time, it started breaking down available matter and reforming it, generating a solid containment for Starrwares uninvited guests.


The swarm will generate steel bindings around Lincoln, Skully and The new green guy. Transform Induced Snare DC 20. Killer frost is already contained so I don't think she gets another save. But this will free up Amazons lasso at least.

Captain Steve Rogers
Hero Points: 2.
Condition: Fatigued.

As Ms. Starr's nanites contained the blue skinned sorceress, and the augment, Lincoln, Rogers walked calmly up to the new arrival, his hand lingering close to his visor, an eerie red energy seeping through the thin aperture.

"The lady's right son. We've got no reason to trust you, and while it seems this micro-incursion is over, we've got every reason to detain you." He looked at the newcomer, trying to assess from his stance, his posture what he intended, and whether he was a hostile. "So why don't you stand down and explain to us what you are doing here, and how got past at least twenty floors of a secure building to an incursion that even our own sensors couldn't pin point until minutes ago."

American Amazon

Once Karen't nanites had provided suitable restraints for Lincoln, Amazon disengaged her cyber-coil, bringing it to her hand in a roll. "Lincoln doesn't remember much of the last hour, except a need to absorb heat... something the horn-hat woman did to her."

Amazon gives the new arrival an appraising look. "Maybe you ought to assume the position while we figure out what to do with you, little green man. On your knees, hands on your head."

"Please."
