Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by K'lar on Feb 16, 2007, 1:11pm

«For everyone else who's interested»

«will be coming soon»

Post by K'lar on Feb 16, 2007, 3:47pm

«Bump»

[[Rogue and anyone else who came along lands in the heart of the mountains. The area is pretty abandoned and quiet. Amazingly the press or police hasn't come up here to investigate. The threat of the Marauders lurking in these hills has been as good as any ghost story]]

Rogue gets out of the plan, "Keep your eyes open, and your comm lines clear at all times. If you see anyone at all, call me immediately. We'll pair up and check things out."

Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Feb 16, 2007, 3:48pm

"Alright. Who do we pair with?"


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by K'lar on Feb 16, 2007, 3:50pm

Rogue looks at Rapt, "Each other." She says with a small smile.

«Wait to see who checks in, and we can go from there»

Chi climbs out of the jet and stays very close to the group. He seems very, very uncomfortable.


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Joseph "Warhead" Olson on Feb 16, 2007, 3:51pm

Joe steps out of the jet, the trenchcoat that he'd added to his costume flapping in the wind. He was very, very nervous.

Post by Almond "Current" Quimby on Feb 16, 2007, 3:51pm

I step out of the jet calmly. I don't seem especially jovial, but professional and stalwart. I have to be, right now. It gives a good impression.


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Wreck on Feb 16, 2007, 3:53pm

Wreck hops out as well, checking his guns before tucking them away.

"This should be entertaining."

"Joe, you and Wreck, work as team one? Chi, are you and Almond alright as group two? And when we get moving, try to stay in visual sight with others if you can, as long as you can. …And don't leave your partner, we don't need a mess with this."

Mike smiles at Amelia, "Yeah, I wanna be with the girl who can make binoculars. Uhm, you can make binoculars, right?"

"I was thinking more of an offense/defense sort of pairing, but yours works too, I guess."


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Amelia "Heaven" Chow on Feb 16, 2007, 4:00pm

I create a pair of binoculars and hand them to Chi, whispering, "They don't really work, I'm not sure how the whole mirror placement functions."


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by K'lar on Feb 16, 2007, 4:01pm

Rogue watches Rapt with approval. Nice to see him take charge. He has a lot of potential here as a leader. And the team could use leadership again.


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Almond "Current" Quimby on Feb 16, 2007, 4:01pm

Incredible. Rapt knows nothing about tactics.
"I wish Lifebeat was around," I absent-mindedly say.


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Feb 16, 2007, 4:01pm

"So was I; You and Almond can blast while your partner engages anyone that attacks; their abilities let them take a pounding."


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission

Chi nods at Amelia, "Fair enough. I don't know how to use them anyway."


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Kalvin "Apex" Richmond on Feb 16, 2007, 4:03pm

"So, who am I with?"

Damn New Mutants, they don't listen to a thing I say…


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by K'lar on Feb 16, 2007, 4:04pm

Rogue watches Rapt to see how he deals with the different distractions. She is ready to step in if she doesn't like what he says.


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Joseph "Warhead" Olson on Feb 16, 2007, 4:05pm

«OBJECTION! Rapt has a leadership/charisma score of 1, there's no way he's this organized . Just kidding»


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Feb 16, 2007, 4:05pm

"Well, they are just suggestions."

Rapt looks at Rogue.

"Is the plane staying here? If so, Seed could probably get some plants to cover it, though if its going to be spotted, it probably already has."

((And yes…he does have a bad score; which is precisely why he makes horrible tactical decisions))


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Amelia "Heaven" Chow on Feb 16, 2007, 4:07pm

I create a large, colorful flag.

"ATTENTION, I'm here. I know you wish I wasn't, but I exist."

I wave it at Rapt.


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by K'lar on Feb 16, 2007, 4:08pm

«LOL! That low score is why no one listens to him »

Rogue says, "The jet should be fine. The Avengers promised us the area would be clear for us for at least a little while."


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Joseph "Warhead" Olson on Feb 16, 2007, 4:08pm

«See, I figured that tactics would be Intelligence, and motivation/etc. would be leadership. Ah, who cares, what the hell does it matter?»

"I don't think that's a good idea, Rapt. Not about the plane thing, I mean…the pairs, still."


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by K'lar on Feb 16, 2007, 4:11pm

«Okay, here is who we have…»

Chi
Rapt
Rogue
Amelia
Outburst
Current
Wreck
Seed

Rogue's suggestion would be
Seed with her
Wreck with Amelia
Rapt with Current
Chi with Outburst

Range with non-range, experienced with non-experience.


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission

Joe makes the same suggestions as Rogue would've/did, throwing William (or "that…other guy") in with Amelia.


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Amelia "Heaven" Chow on Feb 16, 2007, 4:22pm

The flag disappears.

"Other than being with two people I don't know, I'm fine with that. Although I'd prefer to…never mind."

Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by K'lar on Feb 16, 2007, 4:23pm

Mike smiles at Amelia and mouths something like, "Go make friends!"

«BTW, Wraithling is perfect with Amelia and Wreck. Wreck has range with his guns, but this balances them out. Poor Wreck stuck with two newbs »


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Feb 16, 2007, 4:23pm

"…What does everyone know of the marauders, especially the ones we saw in the video? How they get around in particular, like, are they still here, should we watch for a jet of their own?"


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Joseph "Warhead" Olson on Feb 16, 2007, 4:24pm

Joe coughs, and blushes a little. He didn't know exactly how to say this. "I'm sorry I didn't put you and Mike together, 'melia, I just didn't want you to be…" he coughs again. "…distracted by each other. I'm sorry, that didn't come out how I liked it…"


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Wreck on Feb 16, 2007, 4:26pm

"I've never seen them use a jet, but Sinister obviously has really high tech to work with. They can likely teleport."


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission

Will is moderately surprised by Rapt's leadership skills, they seem to have improved.


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Amelia "Heaven" Chow on Feb 16, 2007, 4:27pm

"Oh, it's…not…quite…like that, Joe."

Is it? Should I have said that?

"I mean, it's not like we're not going to take this seriously or something, you know. If you're worried about us taking time off a field mission to play kissyface, you shouldn't be."

I look at my minisquad.

"Um, we haven't met. I'm Amelia Chow."


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Joseph "Warhead" Olson on Feb 16, 2007, 4:27pm

At "teleport", Joe beings looking around everywhere, panicking a little.

Joe coughs again, and looks at Mike apologetically. "I…uh…wasn't…it wasn't you I was…"


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by K'lar on Feb 16, 2007, 4:27pm

Rogue shakes her head, "We really don't know what we're going to find here. That video seemed strange…" Rogue pauses, "Just keep an open mind, and as soon as you see anything, call your teammates."

Mike elbows Joe in the ribs playfully. "You could have lied and said that is because you didn't want two people with no ranged powers."


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by William "Wraithling" Weaver on Feb 16, 2007, 4:29pm

Will shakes her hhand.

"Hi, I'm Will, I… well, it seems I mostly get my ass kicked these days."


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by K'lar on Feb 16, 2007, 4:31pm

Mike doesn't seem all that bothered. He likes Joe, and he knows this is serious business. He brings his force field up around him.

Joe whispers to Mike, a nervous grin on his face "…well, that would've been a lie now, wouldn't it…"

Torrance Batmans in behind Joe. She scowls, and fishes for her cigarettes in her jacket pocket.

"Have we had time to plan?"


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Joseph "Warhead" Olson on Feb 16, 2007, 4:37pm

Joe looks bitterly down at his gut…he was going for his feet, but he ain't seen them in years. He sighs. "Okay…c'mon feets, let's get to walking."


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission

I smile back at Will.

"In all seriousness, basically, all I can do is make simple objects appear out of thin air. Which sounds much cooler than it is, because there are all sorts of rules and provisions on it that I don't fully understand. Like, they can't be heavier than I can carry, and they can't get more than twenty feet away or so."


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Last Hero on Feb 16, 2007, 4:40pm

"Huh, look's like we're off, then." I turn to Torrance, shrug, and I nod Seed's way,too. "It'll be nice having the plant-guy along in a forest, I guess. Should've brought some trail mix…"


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission

Torrance turns to Seed and Zephyr, arching an eyebrow.

She glances at Zephyr, remembering how she murdered and facepalmed him, and twists her lips into a smirk.

Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Feb 16, 2007, 4:42pm

Roc looks at Almond.

"I suppose we should head off in our direction. I suggest Up. At the least we'll be able to keep a visual on the others for a while, and might see something."

"Lets go I guess." I start to wander off.


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Amelia "Heaven" Chow on Feb 16, 2007, 4:43pm

I turn towards a random direction that no one has gone in yet. My sword appears in my hand.

"Just in case."


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission
Post by Last Hero on Feb 16, 2007, 4:43pm

"Uh-huh." I start to head off, but before I do, Torrance's 'unique' stare catches me. "What's that look about?"

"Torrance, be nice to him this time! Unless you don't feel like it!"


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission

I am assuming that people headed in different directions.

Seed with Rogue

Rogue and Seed hang back as backup (sorry Lex)

Wreck with Amelia, Wraithling

They come upon the area where the attack occurred. A chunk of the mountain seems to have been torn down.

Rapt with Current

Come upon a little camp. Seems like there were enough tents for three people.

Chi with Outburst

Find a strange little burned out area in the ground. Outburst is feeling lots of negative energy from it.

Torrance with Zephyr

Come upon a dark cave. There is a low growling sound in the back of it.

[[Revised:

Rogue

Rogue hangs back as backup

Wreck with Amelia, Wraithling

They come upon the area where the attack occurred. A chunk of the mountain seems to have been torn down.

Rapt with Current

Come upon a little camp. Seems like there were enough tents for three people.

Chi with Outburst

Find a strange little burned out area in the ground. Outburst is feeling lots of negative energy from it.

Torrance with Zephyr, Seed

Come upon a dark cave. There is a low growling sound in the back of it.


Re: Addirondacks Mini-Mission

Torrance crouches down a little ways in the cave, and her warg Darklings disappear in the blackness.

"That's odd."

I conjure up a test tube and a pair of tongs, and take a sample of the metallic alloys, if I can.

Torrance stows her Darkforce armor in a haze of shadow, then pulls a a handkerchief from her cargo pocket.

"Not sure, but I bet I'll get a hell of a nosebleed finding out. Which way do we scout?" she asked, forming three doves.

She shrugged, "What, you were expecting crows?"

"I'm probably wrong, but…your right when you said they don't seem like the kind to leave witnesses…which means it was either a setup, the marauders filmed it themselves to send a message, or they were careless."
