"Pointless Social Niceties... Comments about appearance... A tongue in cheek comment about pants..."

Only Cream and Bastards Rise?

Jonny sighed again, pushed the arms of his T-shirt up for a half moment (They fell down again immediately) and... well, Gus DID request he bring one of them closer.

Meta:
Trying to wrangle a comment down to the party. Gonna try to make it with a Brawn check, if they're even physical. 5 and 18, taking the 18 with my 5 brawn. Noooot likely.

Jonny finds the comment surprisingly solid, but any attempt to pull it down results in failure. It seems the Likes are too strong.

Coughing politely, Sarah remarks, "I wouldn't say trust, but it's not gonna hurt anyone to work together to get outta here."

"Don't worry about it Jonny. It's a Facebook comment, it's fluff anyways!" Sarah says, giggling at the realization that the clouds here were fluff. Just like in real life. Hee. "Real question is, what are we waiting for? There's a town down there that we can go check out!"

Sarah looks at the town and will try to make out billboards, human figures and animals to get a better sense of what the town is about.

d20- 11 + 7 perception = 18. So I'm not going to see anything that Gus didn't.

Feeling momentarily snarky, Jonny lands on top of the comment, and takes a seat. He yells down.

"Fine, fine, so maybe these things are fluff, but if they suddenly start falling keep in mind that they're solid enough to be dangerous."

From his vantage point, he should be able to see pretty much the whole of the town, so he tries to get a view of anything out of the ordinary. While trying desperately to not focus on his knuckles going white as he tries to grip the comment.

Heights. Why heights?

Meta:
Why not, throwing Jonny's perception check in as well, hoping for a bonus from the cloud layer. 14+7 = 21

From his vantage point, Jonny can see that there is a large group of people gathered in what appears to be the center of the town.

Huh.

Jonny decides it's probably for the best to be on thrice blessed sweet terra firma solid ground before contributing that bit of information, so he heads back down from the clouds to the group.

"Hey guys, big meeting going on in the town square. Hopefully not a hanging or a stoning but I really couldn't make out a lot of details."

"Given that we're apparently in Facebook... Maybe it's some sort of big, stupid, argument? I know my friends like doing that on Facebook. And there are like a million political pages where people get to have shouting matches," Sarah ponders. A spark of insight flashes across her eyes, "M-more importantly, wouldn't that mean there are more people like us? People who are stuck inside the internet? They could know something, we need to check this out!"

Sarah breaks into a faster jog now, a pace she figured the people in the group could keep up with. There was, however, a very real chance she was overestimating the group with an old man and a bunch of skinny nerds.

Since Jonny had flown off before Woolie could respond that, indeed, Let's Plays were exactly what he was talking about, he was stuck on the ground, mostly glad that his new crew (and not exactly Saints Row IV was this lot) was finally focusing on something besides arguing with each other about who liked each other more or whatever dumb bull-

Ping.

It's a good things everybody was already headed for the town square, because Woolie could sense there was something very important and very personal there. "Hey, wait up!" he called after Sarah, beginning at a dash and slowing to a jog as she approached her, but always headed to the direction of the town.

"H-hey!"

Jonny makes an attempt to keep up with Sarah, but he's likely to be outdistanced. 5 brawn does not lend itself well to exertion.

He does at least try to keep up in the front of the stragglers.

Kaji runs after the rest of the group, looking over her shoulder at the comment cloud with a thoughtful expression.

The group, however disjointed, arrives at the town after about 15 minutes. As Gus and others noticed earlier, the streets are empty. This area looks like a neighborhood, with several multicolored suburban homes lined up in neat rows. Interestingly, the street just stops right at the edge of town. All through the neighborhood there are roads, but none of them extend beyond into the fields. A slight noise can be heard nearby, but it's not quite clear what it is from here.

If Jonny has any sense of direction left over from his overhead view, he's going to point towards the Town Square.

"So... we had a huge amount of bodies roughly thattaway. Do we consider it a good thing to approach?"

Meta:
Just because failing to remember the directions from 15 minutes ago would be amusing, Streetwise (I think?) check, 14+10

"I appreciate the vote of confidence if not the implied blame if this turns sour."

Jonny slumps his shoulders at the responsibility, and heads off towards... The Unknown People! Or the Town Square! ... The Unknown Square! ..There's really no way to make this sound cool.

Kaji grins at Jonny
"Lead on pal. Don't worry. We won't blame you... much."
she follows along with the group, stopping to check some windows (both first and second floor).
"That noise seems.. odd though."

"Might as well meet the natives. What's with the noise, though?"

History:
Try and recall/identify the noise, either from TV, any of his younger family members newfangled thingamajigs, or some other source he may have heard before, if applicable.

Inside the house, Kaji sees idealistic living room setup with a nice couch, an unlit fireplace, a good recliner, and a large HDTV. Through the second floor window she sees a fairly mundane bedroom with naught but a bed, a nightstand, a closet door, and a wardrobe. She also realizes that the sound they're hearing sounds a lot like people yelling, though whether in rage or happiness she can't tell.

Gus is able to recall the faint sound of cheering. There's something off about it though, as though the happiness is not quite genuine.

As the party heads deeper into the town, houses give way to idealistic shops and small businesses, all of which are closed at the moment, the windows tinted so nobody can see inside. There's a florist, a small grocer, some restaurants, a baker, even a barber shop. The noise from the center of town is getting louder.

"I wouldn't be too sure about that. They might be arguing or fighting about something. I can't tell one way or the other."
Kaji looks at the rest of the party.
"Now that i'm getting used to this body, I'm pretty sure I can get around without being seen.
Should I sneak ahead and take a peek? Just to make sure we're not running into the middle of a war or something?"

"I vote for our sneakiest member to make with the sneaking. Realistically, at this point we're not even sure if we're approaching a bunch of humans, or even if humans are allowed around here."

He pauses for a moment.

"...Does a pair of cat ears qualify as not human? ...Either way, paranoia suggests caution. Sanity suggests getting answers. Madness suggests wearing a lampshade on our head and dancing into whatever's going on. Sloth suggests we just get a burger and ignore everything else until they're done. Uncertainty thinks we should probably just.. umm.. stay out of the way. Maybe."

His smirk falters for a moment, pondering.

"I ran out of vaguely humorous ways to go with that."

DerouX speaks up, tactics being one of his strong suits. "I agree that we should send a scout ahead, but we should also have someone accompaning them, in case they get into trouble. I think I ought to be able to do this..."

Spoiler:
Going to try and use magecraft to channel Evelynn. Roll = 17 + 20 base + 1 from grandure = total 38. I do have freaky knowledge: League of Legends, if that helps any.
