It should be Elizabethtown.

Also, if you want to do it before Gen X #3, I don't mind.

Considering our recent PMs and all

[The way I'm planning it, it might take a little while - this is going to be a multi-week event, and it'll be designed to accommodate people who might not be around at (everyone will have their own objective, I'm thinking, and we'll meet back up eventually) That being said, I want to research a few things, and I'd rather start off next week - usually, I go off the cuff, but I want to make sure everything's straight this time. I have a few surprises I want to bring out.

So, you go ahead, if you're ready. ^_^

Emma drives along, casually flipping through stations as the Hellions drive there way out Jersey. It’s been a lazy morning so far, as the crew finds themselves heading into pleasant Englishtown, mowing through the fog and watching some movies.

Torrance is in her favorite seat opposite Emma's driver's seat, and she's slouched in the corner against the window, reading a week old Entertainment Weekly she found at the Applebee's.

Jenny is in back, watching Trainspotting with headphones on, half-asleep.

Post by Squirrel Girl on Mar 19, 2007, 11:06pm

"I don't believe in CDs, honestly." Emma glances back towards Will. "I had an MP3 player, but -"

Emma glances back to the road just in time to see a flash of movement pass in the bus' path, followed by a thud from under the bus. A very, loud, crunchy thud.

The bus jumps, as if they just passed over a bump in the road, and Emma brings it to a stop. "Perfect." She sighs, looking out into the fog.

Shaman is sitting towards the back of the bus, his TK field surrounding him as he leans back on nothing but air. He's got a joint in his mouth and he's smoking, but he's making a concious effort to keep the smoke contained in a TK bubble so he can dump it out the window without disrupting the bus.


Re: The Hellions #6 - ZOMBIES! Part 1
Post by Alkaline on Mar 19, 2007, 11:09pm

Jenny sighs and pulls her headphones off. "I'll get it, half a sec," and she sparks through the bus's electrical system and out the headlights.

She ignites her finger into a flare, trying to see what the bus hit.

Post by Squirrel Girl on Mar 19, 2007, 11:10pm

"Rocks don't generally run out in front of things, Kee'an." She hits the gas a little, and there's some obvious lag coming from the back of the bus. "And they don't generally drag, either." She opens the door, steps out. "I'll take a quick look, dislodge it. Everyone, stay in your seats."

Michale looks out, but he can't really see anything from his position.

Jenny comes out of the headlights, but aside from the large splotch of blood on the bus' front, there's nothing to see. Whatever it is, it's under the bus.

Post by Shaman on Mar 19, 2007, 11:18pm

Shaman throws the roach from his joint out the window and hovers forward.

"I can lift the bus."

Michale phases his head through the floor of the bus and looks around, not exactly sure what he's looking at…

Jenny crouches near the grill of the bus. "It's not too bad of a dent. Can't say I fancy the blood, though," she wrinkles her nose, moving back to the bus door.

He moves to the side letting Jenny back in.

"Yeah, a downed tree lying in the middle of the road. Or do you guys not have trees?"


Re: The Hellions #6 - ZOMBIES! Part 1
Post by Squirrel Girl on Mar 19, 2007, 11:21pm

There's a scream outside, followed by what vaguely sounds like a dog's bark. Sure enough, Michale looks through the floor just in time to see Emma shooting her heel clean through some dog's skull.

Post by Siamko "Blind" Vasiliev on Mar 19, 2007, 11:21pm

"This can only end in disaster."

From his seat, Blind reaches out and tries to get a sense of…..whatever it is beneath the bus. Only to stop as he hears the scream.

"And….I was correct."

Post by Ferrante on Mar 19, 2007, 11:22pm

Michale quickly pulls his head back inside the bus looks around, eyes wide.

"Ms. Frost just skull-spiked a dog."

Post by Kee'an on Mar 19, 2007, 11:22pm

"Miss Frost?"

I run out the bus and toward where I saw her.

"What's going on?"


Re: The Hellions #6 - ZOMBIES! Part 1
Post by Squirrel Girl on Mar 19, 2007, 11:22pm

Blind only sense Emma and the now extremely dead dog. Emma seems to be in a lot of pain, though, and she's clutching her ankle.


Re: The Hellions #6 - ZOMBIES! Part 1
Post by William "Wraithling" Weaver on Mar 19, 2007, 11:23pm

More on impulse than reasoning Will hops off the bus and comes to Emma's aid.

"Are you alright? What happened?"


Re: The Hellions #6 - ZOMBIES! Part 1
Post by Squirrel Girl on Mar 19, 2007, 11:24pm

"This dog…" Emma backs off and leans against the bus, grabbing her ankle. Quite a lot of blood coming from her ankle…but oddly, no blood coming from the dead dog's skull. "Wasn't quite as dead as one would think. Not too happy about being run over, I'd imagine."


Re: The Hellions #6 - ZOMBIES! Part 1
Post by Shaman on Mar 19, 2007, 11:24pm

Shaman floats through the door of the bus and hovers above the ground. Taking one look at Ms. Frost he gestures and raises her off the ground with his TK, letting her take the weight off.

"What happened?"


Re: The Hellions #6 - ZOMBIES! Part 1
Post by Ferrante on Mar 19, 2007, 11:25pm

Seeing everyone dash off of the bus, Michale decides to follow and phases through the side closest to Ms. Frost and company. He notices her ankle.

Post by Squirrel Girl on Mar 19, 2007, 11:26pm

Emma seems quite relieved to get the pressure off her leg, but she's still bleeding quite a bit from the dog's bite. "Thank you, Shaman."

Torrance runs over with the med-kit.

"Bactine…bandages…where the fuck is the bactine?! Dogs, dogs mean rabies, crap."

"Da na na!" she exclaims the Zelda music, hoisting the antiseptic bottle in the air.


Re: The Hellions #6 - ZOMBIES! Part 1
Post by Squirrel Girl on Mar 19, 2007, 11:30pm

Michale notices that the dog has quite a few injuries, not all of which came from being hit and dragged by a double decker bus. There seem to be a few bite marks on him, though they seem…human, as little as that makes sense. He's missing a lot of flesh, too, and his blood seems coagulated.


Re: The Hellions #6 - ZOMBIES! Part 1
Post by Kee'an on Mar 19, 2007, 11:30pm

Hmm? So that's a dog eh? It looks pretty….. dead. Like, it was has not been alive for some time. Oh well, must be how these "dogs" look on this planet.

Post by Ferrante on Mar 19, 2007, 11:32pm

"That's… not kosher. This thing looks like it was dead even before we hit it, and then Emma says it still wasn't dead even after we ran it over. It's all chewed up. What do you make of it, Jenny?"

Shaman decides to speak up.

"If it your wish, Frost, then I can always make contact with the Mother. If contact is brief enough I may be able to discover if something is plauging the area."

Torrance performs First Aid, and raises it to 250. "Sweet, runecloth bandages," she smirks.

Jenny raises two fingers to Shaman. "Oh, I'm so sick of hearing about your Mother, you need a butcher's 'round your head."

She looks at her audience and twirls her finger around her temple.

Shaman's words confuse Emma at first, but she catches the general gist of what he means. "I suppose it couldn't hurt. Go ahead."

She looks back to Torrance, smiles…as much as she can, anyway. "Thank you, dear. It's a deep gash, though…I'll need stitches. We'll be making another pit stop, it seems."

"Peculiar," Blind says while looking down at the dog. Oddly enough, he's both there and sitting on the bus. The Blind next to the dog then disappears, leaving only the one in the seat. He stares blankly at the screen ahead.

Excelsior makes the purchase, and the screen comes back. "The nearest hospital is Our Ladies At Peace Presbyterian, located in Englishtown. 1.675 miles to the north, following the current road. Would you like to go there?"

«Sorry, took a cig break»

Shaman ignores Jenny's comments.

"All I ask is that someone remove me from the ground within about, I'll say twenty seconds. Any more would be pain."

Shaman lowers his field and drops to the ground, the second his feet touch his head shoots up, his eyes open wide, and he starts to scream.

The bus heads towards the hospital. Just without its passengers.

The sudden lurch knocks Will out of his seat, and he goes tumbling down the entryway, falling out to the side of the road as the bus disappears into the fog.

Shaman regains his composure not long after being lifted up, quickly restoring his TK field to float on his own.

"My thanks, Michale."

Rubbing his head he turns to Emma to report his visions.

Oddly enough, Jenny feels that the power lines are pretty much dead. As a matter of fact, there seems to be oddly little electricity in the area.

Emma sighs as the bus disappears. "I'm going to have a long talk with Tony." She shakes her head, pointing down the road. "We're walking."

[Ah, sorry.]

Shaman senses that there's definitely something wrong. Everything just feels so…dead. The ground feels devoid of life. The trees crumble. It's like the life in this area's just been sucked out.

Turning back to Michale temporarily he slightly grins.

Jenny gives up her search and mutters, "Dead." She looks at Michale, "His name's Shaman, but he should respond to Tosser. Don't you nick my cig this time," she growls at Shaman as she lights up.

Torrance keeps pace with Emma and Will. "So…all roads lead to Rome, right? Follow the yellow-lined road?…and I'm out."

With Shaman's encouraging words, the group head on down the road.

There's an eerie feeling about them, as they go through the fog. A few of them think they see human shapes in the shadows. The occasional breeze that carries the hint of a scream. Nothing concrete, nothing that couldn't be imagination, but it's there, and it's accompanied by a pungent odor that grows strong and strong as they make their way into town.

One useful fast forward later, the group finds themselves standing outside the entrance to Englishtown - which is completely empty.

The cars are parked, neatly. There's a rather happy tune playing over the PA system near the front gates. Aside from the fog and the absence of all life, things look so peaceful.

"I'll admit, I am honestly disturbed." Emma shakes her head, turning to Blind. "I'm sensing a few minds around, but I can't speak to them - it's like some sort of static blocks me. Blind, can you hone in on them?"

Blind senses three sets of hearts beats.

The first ones are straight ahead. There seems to be a bunch of them gathering inside what appears to be a mall.

The second ones are a pair, making their way around in the east. They seem to be searching for something.

There's one, final vital sign in the west of the city, but it's weak and fading fast.

Blind also encounters the same static that Emma spoke of, and it prevents him from seeing more. It seems to dampen mental powers.

"It might be, yes." Emma nods Blind's way. "However, I'm loathe to stay here any longer than need be…this damper on my powers worries me. We should find the cause of this and be on our way, immediately."

She looks around, sighs. "I'll stay here and maintain telepathic contact, keep everyone linked. We split up in threes, but we don't stray too far, and you retreat at the first sign of trouble, understand? No heroes today."

She shakes her head at the mention of Squirrel Girl. "The girl has an odd sleep pattern. She's probably still on the bus, blissfully unaware."

Team Maroon goes down the road, and can see two faint silhouettes through the fog, but the silhouettes don't seem to notice them. One of the them clearly has a large gun.

Team Blue goes straight on, and finds themselves in the empty parking lot in front of a mall. It's hard to tell from where they stand, but the doors seem to be barricaded.

One's a black man, bald head, looks to be a cop and vaguely resembles Ving Rhames. The other is a white woman, brown hair, in some odd variation of a SWAT uniform, wearing a berret.

Shaman's touch has an odd effect. Instead of putting calm into the man, he takes fear out. A voice comes into his head, that of a young girl, sweet and playful…but with a bit of sinister nonetheless.

"I see you." She whispers, her voice echoing in Shaman's mind.

The sniper brings out his walkie talkie and starts to converse.

Inside, Ferrante sees another man with the walkie talkie and a gun of his own, conversing back.

The sniper smiles after his conversation is done. "You guys are superheroes? Got powers? Tell me you have powers, please."

Inside, the man with the walkie talkie approaches Ferrante, telling the frightened horde to calm. "Just wait here, kid. We'll bring your friends in."

Team Maroon (Cadmus, Wraithling, Blind) have encountered a couple of police officers going around the city. They start a dialog, but before they can reveal too much, a huge monstrosity comes their way.

Team Red (Jenny, Shaman, and Kee'an) finds themselves facing a strange, giggling girl, after dispatching a zombie in a store. The girl seems amused.

Team Blue makes their way to the mall, and is brought inside by a group of militia men. Inside, they find a group of humans looking in on them. Some mad. Some afraid. Some hopeful.

"We don't know how, we don't know why, but about a week ago…there was this fog. It rolled in out of nowhere, and it made all sorts of crap happen. Telephones don't work. Electricity's pretty much dead. People tried to leave the town, bring back help…nobody came back."

The monster doesn't seem the least bit affected by Blind's trickery; it sees with everything expect its eyes, and that seems to include a sixth sense.

It tries to attack reach in the alley and grab them, but it's way, WAY too big to fit - instead it reaches in with its mighty hand, threatening to knock the buildings in with every blow.

About her will. Well, my Mother talks to me, too. She says she wants to meet you all. Make you a part of her. Take you to herw womb."

Screams are heard in the distances, as human shapes start to gather in the fog, running their way. "Join us."

Bathed in blood. Black blood. I'm suddenly glad that Impossible Man's OCD curse wasn't permanent. The freak is confused and eating the fingers that I cut off, perhaps due to Blind's involvement. I would press an attack, but really, Siamko raises an excellent point. And I don't want to agitate the monster while it's not focusing on me already.

Jenny steps in front of Kee'an, charging up.

"So, I'm thinking now is the time for regrouping."

Torrance glares at the doctor, and a Darkling wolf-ghul bounds from her palm and bristles it's neck, growling at the crowd."I said there's others. We need to find them."

She looks at the bikers, with their weaponry.

"You want to live up to a stereotype, or is it just gonna be me, my monthly cycle, and these two waifs?" and she jerks her head back to Michale and Will.

"She's never in any specific place - you just look up and she's there. And then they come. It's always the same. She can't seem to get inside buildings, though, which is why we're hanging in here."

"There's a mall, everyone's held up in there!" The lady cop burst out and the man cop comes out behind, running. "Move! Follow us!"

They come in the hundreds, barreling down the street. Some are missing arms. Some legs. Some jaws. Some ears. Their skin rotted, their bones decays, their stares blank and lifeless, they nonetheless run toward the group at full speed, an undead mob threatening to overrun them.

You know, I'm pretty damned sure he doesn't teleport. I think he just doesn't want to be seen exerting effort to run and likes popping into view and looking cool. Not like I wouldn't do it. Putting my swords in their sheaths, I run towards the mall behind the cops.

Team Maroon runs off, and as they go, they can see Team Red starting to do battle with the zombies.

"Hey!" The lady cop calls out, pointing to Team Red. "Friends of yours?

Shaman manages to knock a good deal of zombies away, but there are A LOT of these bastards - even for his powers, it's a bit much. Not too far off, they can see Team Maroon running their way, with even more zombies on their tales, and it seems like there's only two directions to go: Out of town, or towards the mall.

The militia men scatter, heading outside.

Old, abandoned, has been for years. When all the ghouls started popping up, we noticed the majority of them seemed to hang around this church. Guarding it. The first time we tried to get in by force, see what they were hiding - didn't work. This time we tried some stealth. It worked.

Someone called the Queen shows up, says it's too expand her domain, and…" She shakes her head. "Doesn't make much sense to me.

He finds himself on the ground, the little girl looking down on him from behind. He tries to move. Can't. "You really brought some good ones along this time, Mother."

"Yes, yes. I know." A woman's voice coos from behind, all too familiar. Shaman starts to crane his neck to see, but he can't quite make it… "They're perfect. Luring them here was much simpler than I thought it would be."

"Are you sure, though? They're strong. Much stronger than anyone we've faced before."

Shaman turns enough to see a pair of white high heels walking his way. "It won't matter, believe me. They'll die like all the rest."

"Like this one?"

"No, not like this one." Emma Frost's smiling face appears over Shaman, looking down on him with her usual grace and poise. Not the slightest crack in her voice. "I have special plans for you, dear."
