The League [IC]

Post  ZamuelNow on Fri Nov 21, 2014 3:12 pm

October 16, 4:23 PM

Bright.  It was the most definable point of the otherwise sparse room.  The League tended to try to make rooms "tactically cozy".  The idea was that in the right conditions, a hero would be able to train and practice with their mind at ease and thus have optimal output.  Of course this would be changed up since missions rarely took place in such optimal conditions.  However, the mission briefing room was different.  It was stark and harsh, explicitly to let those summoned know that this is in no way a test or a drill.  The table in the center of the room was a half ring so that team members seated could see each other while clearing seeing the one giving orders or any holographic projections of note.  This was previously an uneventful day of training but with the commlink going off, something must have happened.  The summoned members entered the room in preparation for the assignment.

OOC:
While there may be things that need fleshing out, I'm starting this to get my own momentum going.  All of you have been on at least one mission though some have been on vastly more than others.  Similarly, this is the first time this exact collection of League members though a few of you may have bumped into each other on missions.

The campaign will use a number of fictional versions of locations like the DCU does.  This particular League location is located in Mont Correl, an expy of Atlanta, Georgia.  I've never been to Atlanta but the fictional nature gives me leeway to make things up.

As is typical, a small bit of getting into character and mingling before the mission itself is given.

Iron Maiden was pleased to be first to the room. She liked to think that she was as prepared as possible for disaster, and her mother always stressed punctuality. Plus, she had time to collect herself, and ensure that she would remain calm and professional, no matter what amazing heroes arrived.

Phoenix strides into the room calmly, almost bored. Not that he had anything else to do, but still... He glances at Iron Maiden and nods. "Oh hey, what's up?" Taking his usual seat (far right), he glances at the displays nearby, hoping to catch and indication of what they're here for.


OOC:
Assumption: Since both Phoenix and Iron Maiden were originally in the other game, despite setting changes I think we could have worked together previously.

Also, being FROM Atlanta (hence why I made up Mont Correl), I absolutely will not hesitate to call you out on anything you get wrong. Not that I'd expect you to change it for any reason, but I'll enjoy it nonetheless. Dan vs Smiles

Iron Maiden nodded back towards him with a half smile. She wasn't sure whether she liked Phoenix, but he was damn good at what he did.

Technically, that was a "different" Iron Maiden, but I'm down with them knowing each other.

Ash slips into the room third, letting Phoenix and the Maiden distract each other from her entrance. Rather than taking a seat, she leans against the back wall and fades into the background, uncannily easy to overlook even under the harsh lights. Preferring to arrive early and appear late, she makes no effort to acknowledge her teammates or draw attention to her presence.

Yuri walks into the room and silently strides to the chair at the far end, attempting to make eye contact with Ash before taking a seat, watching the door for their final entrant.

Ash pretends not to notice Yuri. Once his back is to her, she pulls the brim of her hat down over her eyes and tries harder not to be noticed.

A man of around thirty wandered into the room with an amicable yawn. He wore a green jacket with a blue treble clef emblazoned on it and had a guitar case slung over his back. He picked the nearest seat he could find and straddled it, leaning up over the back. "Hey there, ladies and gents. How're we all doing today?"

"Tired, was sleeping." Phoenix punctuates this with a brief stretch. "Just five of us, this time, right?"

After a bit of awkward silence, the door opened and in walked one of the League mission directors.  Those who had worked with her before knew she was simply addressed as Agent Anthony.  A slightly tall Cherokee woman, her most defining trait was a lack of hair.  And not that it was short, she simply didn't have any, including a lack of eyebrows or eyelashes.  She wore a nondescript dark purple uniform and had a very ordered walk like someone with guard experience but not exactly part of the military.  Carrying an icosahedron made from an unknown clear alloy, she walked to the front of the room and tapped one of its sides.  The device glowed and hovered as it projected a holographic image of a stone building with a canopy of trees surrounding it.  Agent Anthony then addressed the group,

"Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen.  Don't have much time for pleasantries due to the situation in hand.  There's an escalating situation at hand in the Grand Phoenix Bank of Mont Correl.  Reports coming in show that Staticaster is staging a robbery and is using the bank patrons as hostages.  While her volatile nature and the safety of civilians are obvious causes of concern, the biggest issue is that she's supposed to be in jail.  This means we've either got a talented copycat or she's broken out without anyone's knowledge.  For the moment, priority one is getting the civilians to safety and priority two is capturing Staticaster.  The latter ought to lead to the former but there's a bit of a wrinkle in that.  She seems to have help, which is a rarity for her.  We haven't gotten a good description since they're said to be masked but we do know it's two males of muscular physique.  Any questions so far?"

OOC:
Playing with the setting a bit as worldbuilding goes on.  Also trying to leave more breathing room for introduction and role play before stuff gets blown up.

Scratch sat up at this, arching his eyebrows. "Hhhhhuh. That don't seem like her M.O. at all. Ain't she usually more the 'lone wolf, bad bitch' type? Or am I thinkin' something else? Either way, shocky-make-things-go-boom type stuff like hers doesn't really suit itself to close up and personal henchmen does it? More important though, how can I help?"

"I never liked that bank for some reason..." Phoenix sits up a bit. "If that's all the info we have, shouldn't we be getting a move on? If this is happening right now, maybe the mystery solving can wait until after we deal with the immediate situation."

"I agree." Yuri says in smooth, accent-less, English. "I don't believe I've been to this bank before. How is it laid out, and where are the hostages?"

Iron Maiden stayed quiet for now. She never quite knew what to say in briefings, and she still had so much to learn. But she did know a fair amount about supervillains, so she focused on trying to remember what any of her family had said about Staticaster

ooc:
Starting the Campaign off with a General Knowledge check on Staticaster. (because why take a fk supervillains without using it)

If I need specifics, I'd ask specifics in how Staticaster works, and what kind of goals she has

FK Staticaster:
She's known for hitting things hard and fast but sometimes with crazed rants interspersed.  While she sometimes has a casual disregard for property damage and civilian safety, she doesn't go out of her way to harm bystanders.  Theft targets are usually technological with the occasional armored car heist.  Often, older robberies are revealed through visible upgrades in her gear.  She almost always makes thefts but on rare occasion she'll randomly attack research facilities.

Agent Anthony brought up blueprints on the hologram.  "SWAT is watching the front and back entrances.  Outer walls are stone construction but the interior is pretty standard.  Lobby and tellers here with the vault over here.  Ash and Scratch, your job is to get in and get intel on where the hostages and their captors are.  When they give signal, the rest of you will engage.  Everyone will be air dropped by one of our stealth jets.  The city's status as an urban forest is going to make some things easier and some things harder.  But as already mentioned, time is of the essence."  Grabbing the hologram projector, she motioned for the rest to follow then swiftly exited the room.  Leading them to the hangar, everyone boarded a dark black VTOL which silently lifted into the air and cloaked during transit.

OOC:
Any needed gear would have been sent with you.  I'm leading towards some variant of "Raven" for the stealth jet but does anyone else have any suggestions?

Ash hung out the side of the jet, teetering precariously over the edge, steadying herself with a hand against the jet's frame. "So. What do you think they're not telling us?"

OOC:
I meant to ask that during the briefing but didn't get the right opportunity to step in.

Scratch got out of the plane and stretched himself before adjusting his headphones. "Alright, Ash. Any big ideas? If nothing else, I can see what sort of read I can get on the emotional state in there."

Not quite waiting for an answer, he lifted one ear of his headphone up, closing his eyes to listen.

Meta:
Using the following on anyone in the bank I can sense.

Empathetic (2) – At Will
Preparation Time: 10 seconds
You can feel the emotions of creatures around you, even when they show no physical signs of their true feelings. Make a insight check with a +5 bonus to sense the emotional state of a target creature you can see.

Insight=15+Empathetic=5+roll=8=28.

Feel free to say it doesn't work.

"We're just talking past each other, aren't we?" Ash mutters, mostly to herself, before exiting onto the roof and scanning the area for any viable entry points.

OOC:
I just noticed we randomly switched tenses a few posts back.

Yuri looks up from Staticaster's file, which he had been browsing. Horrible, horrible woman, but nothing particularly surprising. "Whatever do you mean?" He asks Ash.

"I meant what I said. There's something they don't want us to know about, I guarantee it. Whose money we're saving, the secret tech locked away in some safe deposit box, our target's sick sister in need of a very expensive operation. A bank job's never just a bank job, and the boss always knows more than they let on."

Iron Maiden hadn't said much earlier, other than that she couldn't ever remember hearing of Staticaster robbing a bank, but that did catch her attention. "Well, if this is, in fact, the real Staticaster, I doubt it's money she's after. Knowing her, it's some kind of tech."

Yuri raises an eyebrow. "You both could be right, but that seems like an odd priority to be making right now. If we capture Staticaster, the latter is largely rendered moot."

"Get your man and everything'll be fine. Doesn't matter who wants him or why, right?" Ash pulls herself back inside the jet and puts her back against the wall next to the door. "Can't blame a girl for wanting to know what she's complicit in."

"Does anyone really care?" Phoenix interjects, having listened to the grown ups discuss it enough. "Rob Bank equals bad. Us equals good. We stop the bad thing, therefor we go and drop Static. It doesn't matter what she's after, because she's not getting it. And even if its a sick sister- Road to Hell is paved with good intentions. No excuses, only explanations. Trust me, I know that whole deal. It doesn't change the fact that our job is to save the day."
