  1. http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/gaming/2013/08/28/nintendo-2ds-impressions/2718421/ Nintendo, were you on something? Its ok, we're your friend, you can tell us. In truthfulness, im not sure of the design being all that comfy. Or childproof...Ill admit between me + extended family we managed to kill 3 original gen. DS'(for the record I shattered the hinge on the original white ds lite, takin out the top screen and my cousin took out two...how i dont exactly know, but one involved a german shepard apparently) but my brothers 3Ds has faced hell in two months and came out on top. Sure the things officislly a brick now, but watch the screens. If nothing else, I hope their ad campaign is completely tongue in cheek since they have to realize how much crap their gonna get for this.

    Actually, from what I think I've pegged regarding your taste from other various reviews, sounds about right to be honest. I disagree some of the lower ranked, but I'm pretty sure we have vastly different tastes(possibly aside from digging well-executed flat-out crazy awesome) and mindset going in, so that's kind of ok. Specifically wanna single out Lone Ranger at 7 being pretty interesting pick. Agree with the description, I caught an 8 pm showing the night before Monday and didn't regret it. The climax makes up for any flaws(which there were) by the choice of soundtrack alone if you're the right kind of person and I honestly want to think Verbinski was trying to modernize the film serial format with it.
  3. Eh, basically what treach said initially. Still working on that poll.
  4. To throw in my two cents, I'd like the first act up to middle of the second to resemble DCAU's episode World's finest. We have Bruce Wayne first and Batman ninja'ing come sin if/when he suspects one or both parties(Superman or Lex if he shows up). Any confrontation(including figuring out each other's identity) is a mental battle. Personally if they could do something like this scene, I'd be happy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pe_Y5bX61D8&list=TLTsXFXkZ1OLc
  5. At some point this week, will post topic to bring everything in line for where we are going next(because it appears we will...ish). Sort of like a will reading, except more bickering and less will get done in the first four hours.

      That sounds like my kind of place

  6. forums not popping now is it? Oh, just...well I have to ask. Might as well throw it in for the future to look back at. Funniest: *ND's rping flub's- All of them. Go out and find em while they're still here. RP board and CBUB RP, you'll be able to tell where he's been. Favorite: *Landon's RP- Im an rp kind of guy, been in a lot and loved a few. However when all is said and done Sky City was sort of awesome. Landon did a good job overall, the pacing was amazing(thanks to landon having deadlines...genius), and magical girls are great. The action was tense and my PC got semi-fame status without hardly being in anything else up to this point. Oh and then like 3/4 of the team died. Still sorry bout that landon, was kind of our fault, a few things went wrong(well a few things and a suicide bomber). Damn fine stuff for getting tpk'd within a week, I'm first in line on the off-chance he ever does that shit again. *Scariest: About 40 seconds ago- When I read treach's line and thought the forum was going down today before we could get everything in order.
  7. Eh, in like 3 days I was gonna post a topic to kinda see which option(of like....four now) to go towards for the future because we have people emotionaling and going in different directions which is...counterproductive. Even if we get some segregation, which on FPL choice should be fine I suppose, having your top 10 friends list spread across that many websites that are in no way interconnected kinda seems to defeat the point of a successor site. I went right to being all for peypeys place(heh funny name) because I didn't think this level of response would be done. Now we know though so Im all for thinking this all through. Even if we just keep links open between places instead of one replacement location we should all be on the same page of that imo. After all the family and community talk we had on the first go anyways. Plus, while not everybody does a fair amount of dabbling, personally I got a foothold in FPL and was in the beginning with what little rping community we have/had. CBUB stuff is also of course in the question so full separation isn't awfully appealing to me.
  8. Im game if no one thinks it's inappropriate(as a sort of business as usual way of moving past I mean).. Regardless, props for such a very quick response time pey x. Looks real similar layout.
  9. Dammit kwolf, you have terrible timing :P. Oh well, maybe some day I'll get the chance to wow you all FPLers properly. For now though; still technically under contruction on my profile: KWolf's parting RP tips. Cheap gags and suvial techniques. Watch now :P

      I can't believe it's coming to an end.

  10. Heh, well guys the news is in. EF's days are numbered but it was a hell of a run. http://www.electricferret.com/forum/index.php/topic/32398-retiring/ Looking back to the very first post from back then was pretty impressive how me and some of you guys came. Hmm, gonna miss these forums I do think it sucks on my end that this thing outlived the boards it was made on . Well, it was fun right guys? Yep,, this site's going down and I SURE AS HELL DON'T PLAN TO LET THE RP FOLLOW. Sentimental is sentimental, but I wanted to know/hope you guys are still in for the haul since this things actually got something approaching momentum :/. I'm not sure where or how yet, but I do want to continue doing this thing. If I got any takers please let me know and if someone has a bright idea where to bring this I'd love to hear it.
  11. It's been a long road to Smash Bros U, but especially for one man in particular.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98DG-rEaxGk
  12. *Alice/Destiny- The Commander sort of had to live with her decision, the carnage of battle wasn't new to her but she probably could've realized not everyone would want to hear that sooner. Destiny was familiar with bloodshed and even she was wincing at the audio feed. "Slipped up a bit there. hag." Destiny snarks to herself as she remains at her post. Alice doesn't exactly complain when her subordinate orders for the comm shut-off. Any conversation either of them wanted to have over that would come later. "Alright, the second we get something other than combat chatter I want to try and get ahold of one of their MA's; we need a status report before anything else happens." Alice sighs, not happy at being unable to do anything. *Larkin- The young Daedalian probably should've known better about the biting tendancies of a Sh'ra from all the stories he's heard, but Larkin was forced to dodge rather than parry. Running on reflex, he attempts to sidestep and slash the Sh'ra across the back with his sword before his enemy could recover from the charge.
  13. Alright that wasn't so bad. Luckily, the one thing I posted that got deleted wasn't all that important.

  14. Hero Orientation room; State of the room- In short: wild and crazy. Those that could escape had a way out, though the day was still young, anything could happen at this point. Those who weren't on their way out the door were either taking their chance to fight the threat or were too injured, or we're still deciding which of the other two options they would prefer;. The event's security were there to join the fight and suppress the enemy assault rather than evac injured, unfortunately for those who didn't have much option than to lay around. The fight in the back was loud and quite obvious to everyone regardless. In the apex of the brawl one particular fighter successfully tries out a theory about fighting fire with water and with a well-timed moment of desperation the room's sprinkler's go off. The majority of people on the run certainly weren't expecting that, causing a bit of panic as things started to get very wet and a tad slippery. Anyone escaping through the front door would spot the two Anthropomorphic police officers who we're holding the escape path open. The lizard-woman of the two was peering through a sniper's scope and she seemed to have lined up a shot when the deluge poured on down, likely ruining her shot for the moment. She shakes her head, surprised by the turn of event and those with sensitive ears could pick up on a few choice expletives from the second feline officer who didn't seem very happy with the situation either. This wouldn't stop the fight out-right for either side, but a bit of water could very well be a game-changer, for who though was yet to be seen. *Vs Eruption, the man of lava(Ursa Rajom, Nicholi D. Trake, Trace, Emma Fox &co.)- Ursa was the one who set off the sprinklers and for the moment his plan was panning out very well. No flamethrower units were left on the forefront, but the magma man was not happy with the large output of water landing on his outer shell of a body, the glowing magma inside faded a bit as steam rose off his frame due to the high output of the sprinklers. If nothing else, he was distracted enough to take his eye off the fighters who had challenged him and in Ursa's case he was free to try and bite away. His transformation was quick, within a second he was closer to a bear than a human and his charge forward went unimpeded, wet floor and all. His bite lands around Eruption's arm, the initial chomp is hard but it only just barely cracks the outer lava rock shell. Ursa could take his move from there, but Eruption seemed strong enough to lift the bear semihuman's larger size and just from touching him, there was still something of a magma core inside him making the ordeal that much more dangerous. Nicholi got some assistance from a sharp shooter(a shot to the bot's arm courtesy of Sphinx), allowing the half-demon to free his arms and deprive the machine of it's head. It took some effort, but he ended up victorious. His attempt to give Trout some water after the fact worked as he found a nearby water fountain....however it seemed a little bit redundant as he got about halfway in when the sprinklers started to drench him and most of the rest of the room. Regardless, he had his water and his ally 'Trout' was just as amazed by this. At Nicholi's request, the young Atlantean looked at the gathering water, the water raining down, then the molten man who was in the middle of being attacked by other fighters. He gives Nicholi a dumbfounded look before he nods. "Right....I can hit....gimmie a few......" he grunts, rubbing his right arm before focusing. He had a plan at least, but he was too busy enacting it to share. What Nicholi did next would be independent from his friend's actions. The son of Satan Trace was having even less luck tag-teaming with his new friend. Derrick normally would've been all for trying the old vaccum trick but Ursa's entire set of actions left him hesitating. With the floor wet and Ursa taking first strike on Eruption, Derrick had to face Trace and reluctantly give a no-go sign. "Too many variables!" he shouts back; while confident he couldn't get hurt in his powered armor, between slipping up and Ursa in the way of the tornado, Derrick feared that someone else could get hurt in the collateral if they screwed up. He was still ready for a fight, but he didn't want to enact Trace's current plan. Eruption roars before trying to grab for Ursa and clutch him tightly as to stop the 'pest' before he could try to do anything else 'bothersome'. Emma, by far the furthest away from the struggle could see all of this clearly enough though she too would find that her siblings would find the scene too dangerous to do anything too crazy. The deluge didn't help and the hard pressure from the sprinkler's could lead to problems with sighting or even arrow trajectory at this range. Everything was up in the air by this point. The lesser villains and machines that had survived the initial strike back left Eruption to his own devices and they attempted to move forward...... *Main battle with the intruders(Animalius and Minerva Rajom, S.P. Captain Sphinx, Fortune, & co.) - The battle was less grandiose than the fight with Eruption, but precise shots we're being exchanged by the four or so robots we're being more tactically sound, keeping on the move and utilizing suppressive fire to keep Sphinx and his retreating group from getting the upper hand. They continue dot open fire but accuracy didn't exactly improve, it did prevent them from focusing too much on the offensive however. Sphinx's advice rang out, but suppressive fire from all but two of his allies continued on since there was not much cover aside from innocent bystanders. Sphinx didn't have much to work with and while backup was coming it wasn't exactly what he had in mind.... Fortune was ready, but he'd need a bit of a head of steam to keep up with Drago, who strode over in the direction of the gun-firing robots. Drago twirled his blade before making it flat side out covering his mid-section. The buster sword was long enough for this job and he was at least confident in his weapons' ability to survive high caliber gunfire. The large oxen man was even less careful; wading forward with intent to rip apart the machines with his bare fists but unless Fortune wanted to fall in behind either being he'd need his own method. The area was fairly clear aside form some stragglers or corpses/near corpses littering the pathway. Though both him and Sphinx would spot some individuals take the break in extended firing to enter a bit more loudly. Animalius had a clear path and his rhino form got pretty much all of the attention. He had a beeline right for the robots gunning away aside from two swordsman(Drago + Fortune) and a large monster of a man in armor in the way. The robots would also notice, not firing away but they would be bale to scatter if Ani went to bowl over the group. This would leave them floored, but Ani's momentum could easily lead him into the fight with the lava man instead. In the wake of the assault, a woman in owl-themed combat gear(Minerva) managed to floor one of the recovering bots with a flying kick to the chest. Though not out, the robot was knocked down, eliminating one shooter for a good amount of time though with Fortune, Drago, and Crete closing in as well this ragtag group probably better get things together before anyone else got hurt. Real first-responders were on their way but their job was to suppress the threat not so much rescue the injured and dying so they weren't exactly not helping. There were a few potshots from behind the wall Eruption was guarding, signifying that the second wave was getting antsy. *Escaping group/just outside Hero Orientation into the lobby(S.P. members Kari, and Trevor, Alec, & co.- Officer Liz gives a nod as she tries to make sure her rifle wasn't compromised by the water. Those in the front of the group were still listening for more orders, so folks like Kari and Thompson had plenty of time to catch up. Thompson specifically was trying to text some people on his phone, though with water pouring down everywhere the normally tedious task proved almost impossible for him so he'd wait on that. Once everyone was close enough, Liz shouted some more before speaking specifically to Trevor. "On it, we'll assist once we're not all washed up." she quips before assisting her partner in making sure everyone knew they should be leaving the room post-haste and judging by /her/ current demeanor, it was probably wise to not make the pissed off catgirl with a gun repeat herself. With that in mind, the civvies finally began to pour out of the room. As soon as they were out of the room, at the very least there were no sprinkler's dousing everyone The overall setting of things we're becoming much more different than the almost formal tone given out earlier. Most people left were either in the midst of running somewhere or we're too confused to run. The pathway Officer Vasquez(catgirl) pointed out was noted with the majority of people running in that direction. If they took her word for it; they'd be led to a monorail station o escape. However a handful of people and people with headsets were shouting certain words like alternate and emergency. A pathway to their left did have a few people running and some security was trying to check for alternate ways the villains could enter. However there simply weren't enough people to properly nudge everyone in the right direction. The entrance they came to even had some activity going on so it was down to where everyone wanted to go. In the back of the group Alec's chewing out of his new friend didn't go unnoticed, least of all by Samson himself. "Thannnksssss bosssss..." the dino-man grumbles, worse for wear but otherwise not in a situation to question the more cautious Alex. Villain orientation room; While the Hero orientation room was going nuts, the Villain's battle was a little more methodical and closed in. Gunfire was still wild but everyone was a bit more methodical in their approach, things like cover and shields of all types were effectively used which meant that both sides were having hard times racking up casualties. The original GTS assassins were now on the defensive however they brought more than enough ammo to keep up the game. *Willow- Willow's directed energy blasts were straight on but this time they only hit air....or some kind of energy barrier more accurately. A Man with some kind of bulked pack had his arms out and was successfully now deflecting the combined fire from the side of the room Willow was on. Luckily the barrier seemed to only work in bursts so only the initial attack was stopped. The attempt to grab a human shield or use pheronomes would work on those near her. The GTS fighters that were still standing were still more or less completely armored from head-to-toe and no foreign scent was going to be reaching them. Luckily Willow was considered small-fry so she still had opportunity to act as nobody was focusing fire on her. What she did with that time was hers to decide. *Dark Lizard & friend- Dark Lizard's near bout of insanity got noticed, but was met with stares rather than gunfire, so he succeeded in taking focus away from Rose who took the moment of surprise to decide that if she was going to be melting all the metal anyways she might as well go all-or-nothing. She plunges her fist into the middle of the detonator mechanism anf focuses her disintegration powers. This seemed to work as a big guy who had been close by sees the device crumple tot he floor and gives a solid kickto the door knob. The door was 'unlocked' but didn't swing all the way open. There was some commotion on the other side and the door fully opened revealing a bomb squad technicial and two accompanying officers on the other side, in the middle of attempting their own diffusal. Rose and the technician share shocked glances with each other. Just behind the police, there was plenty of chaos outside with a lot of people running past the room and even more going right and up. By this point the would-be escapees were definitely noticed... "Don't let em escape!" a female GTS Officer shouts and the remaining heavy gunner opens fire on everyone by the door frame with Rose the prime target. *Lobby; Nurse's office(Maria, Krystal, Hirro, & co.)- Kendra nods in response to Maria's comment, it didn't make her feel better but it was nice that she tried and it was the principle of the thing. Pro's 'interruption' got plenty of attention in the room, especially the higher-ups and Maria barely finished her question before Albatross, the lady in charge of the Guardians, responded. "Yeah, a monorail in the north part of the building...was supposed to drop the newbies off right in the main part of the city once Orientation's done...guess it's done." she heaves wearily, unable to believe all this happened on her watch. "Anyways RCPD has got guys sweeping the thing to make sure it's not booby trapped before we claim the thing's a viable exit. Whatever you picked up was probably one of their officers..." she comments before the woman who could pass for a fairy responds. "That was definitely Missionary, one of their TRU squad members. I know that yell anywhere..." she muses. Albatross shrugs, taking that as confirmation. "I think they got sent into the Orientation rooms, that's where we have the biggest breech from what I know. We can probably help from there if we need to, not far from here and....and where did you get that transmission?" Albatross asks curiously, cutting off her own explination. She was starting to think about how hard it was for their radio frequencies to be unscrambled. "You GEAR tech or what?" she says in an almost accusatory manner though it was primarily stress that caused the lack of tact.
  15. *Alice/Destiny- Destiny was confused, what in the hell did the Comm Officer pick up? Alice was likewise curious. she couldn't resist finding out. "Thank you for the warning Officer, but I'd like to hear it." she says in an even tone, stowing anything that showed eagerness or anticipation. *Larkin- Larkin takes a jump back to try and avoid the blade attack; rather than fighting him head on he tries to grab some distance and let the beast's onslaught subside. Larkin flourishes his blade threateningly, trying to regain composure and bait the sh'ra into a forward strike he could parry. 'Grr!' Larkin bares his teeth, trying to entice his foe into coming within reach of his blade.
  16. Tundra ignores the tactical advice and just picks up the sword. She weighs it in her hand, a good blade, exotic too. It raised more questions on who the woman in front of her was, but she was making enough sense to where Tundra could wait to ask for when they were safe. Despite that she still had no idea where to go from here. "Sontarans...eggheads, blue armor?" she questions, more or less describing the guy who was a few seconds from cutting her up. Now that she thought about it, she probably triggered that first alarm. "Ya overhear them or something? Suppose whoever was watching you got careless." she comments, assuming that Emerald had managed a better escape attempt than Tundra did.
  17. Hero Orientation room; State of the room- The chaos in the room had contained some to where they incoming baddies had met firm resistance. The battle was hectic but nobody could tell if the tide was turning or not so unless they wished to stick around leaving would be safer. The entrance that was practically the only viable door out was quickly being flooded by escaping civvies and would-be heroes so decision time was more important than ever. *Fortune, S.P. member Kari, Omega & co.- Kari was ale to speak her peace towards Thompson and lets her help up Fortune. He meanwhile cursed his lack of preparation for a full-scale assault. The group in general was pretty stunned by the fast assault, a retreat seemed like an idea that was a good idea. Thompson did a 180 and started to try and single file a panicked group of people and he was able to do it without raising past the straight tone he used during the Orientation speech. Drago on the other hand... "...our kind of fight?" Drago repeats, getting a smirk as he lifts up the buster swords he had dropped back during the initial explosion. "This is exactly my kind of fight Fortune. I'm in much better shape then you, I can hold these guys off...trust me." he says confidently. "Nobodies getting hurt on my watch, I can distract while everyone escapes. Wont even scratch my skin, promise" Drago hollers back, taking steps forward as he does. Before anyone can complain a big figure rises from behind the group, the armored fellow that was following around Omega. His booming voice cuts through the various sounds in the air. "I will assist him, I likewise am difficult to kill. Take my friend to safety and be safe yourself." he says in a respectful tone before stomping past the group, no one there was exactly going to stop him physically. In the commotion though, Kari could spot a clear path, though irregular, that'd lead to the entrance. She thought she could make out Trevor leading a party to safety near many others trying to squeeze through the door. *S.P. leader Sphinx, Nicholi D. Trake, Trace, Ursa Rajom, The Blue Fang, & co. The main brawl in the room was hectic, a lot of different fighters and styles were waging an uncoordinated war on the invaders and the results were mixed. Most of the first-wave robots were taken down but it took a lot of unfocused fire and some mishaps to get there; Sphinx and Blue-Fang's ranged assault were all over the place. While Sphinx in downing a single robot with a headshot his allies, mostly self-trained and another military man it seemed, were more sporadic with shots and none really took advantage of his headshot advice and to make things worse several "heroes" decided to take the close combat approach during the flurry of shots. To the group's credit, or luck, they didn't hit any allies and three robots went down from the combined fire....Blue Fang wasn't so lucky, his crystal star barrage was largely ineffective, aside from one managing to get between armor plates and severing an exposed wire which caused a critical failure to the bot, and worse yet he would strike two of the allies that charged into close combat. Both Nicholi and Ursa came in to decimate some of the shocktroopers with lighting fast strikes and for the most part they succeeded despite difficulties. Such as them being under fire during the whole movement via enthusiastic gunman with bad timing. Nicholi managed to masterfully deprave the first robot of his head and arm and he was in the middle of smashing into the second bot when...he wasn't there. The strike with the first bot's severed arm was right on the money but he hit nothing but air: Sphinx's lucky shot between the eye-sensors dropped the troublesome bot when Nicholi was still winding up the hit and to make things worse, Nicholi felt a special kind of sharp pain in his deltoid thanks to a crystal-shurikan shot that went wide from Blue Fang's original aim point that managed to pierce Nicholi's now bare skin. The half-demon's grip weakened and unless he focused he would drop his impromptu weapon,. More directly however was a bot that avoided the flying death barrage intended to cut off the warrior, grabbing the pained Nicholi around the waist for a bear-hug, though the bot probably intended to set up for something a bit deadlier. Ursa was marginally luckier in the sense that his dropkick connects cleanly, snapping the flame unit's head back unnaturally and taking him out of the fight. The bear semihuman felt something cut into his back, another crystal shurikan but this one was only a graze and aside from clumped fur he didn't have much to worry about...from that. In front of him, the biggest threat was the molten lava man and he was now about 3 times Ursa's size and he had two arrows sticking out of his face harmlessly. Trace's course of action was luckily far enough away from the main melee to make sure he was otherwise not in the fight. He took off with a powerful push and while he felt several bullets smash into weaker segments of armor he reaches them uncontested and the bot's heads roll on the ground before the son of Satan even touched down on land again. Before he could celebrate though Trace was surrounded by wall and to his right was the lava man; large and in charge. He along with the rest of the warriors could see the molten monster toss a young man, who was dressed in some kind of armor, who unsuccessfully tried a preemptive strike across the room like a football. The figure spun through the air, but managed to land properly, dazed but alive as his landing cracked the floor. The fight was heating up so to speak. *S.P. member Trevor & Alec the bug man- The group carried on then with Trevor's decision and they quickly ended up the first in line, they were quickly on their way out of the room. before Trevor could do the honors of opening the door first, two police officers clad in SWAT-esque gear. Trevor could recognize Liz, possibly even the feline operative if he was paying attention to who Kari was speaking to at the RPD table. She looks at the group before pointing. "Everyone we have an EVAC point set. Follow the crowd and there is a monorail you will be able to take out of the building. Any alternate exits will be spread around, move it people!" Missionary the catgirl hollers before Liz the lizard-woman moves ahead and scouts the battlefield raging on through a rifle scope. As this was happening, Alec's chewing out of Samson the raptor was going fairly well, as well as it could this situation. "hhurrrrr....ouccchh." he grumbles though he seemed to understand the situation well enough to not complain or try to escape. *Emma Fox- Emma's aim was impeccable though an arrow could only go so fast. Her original target was nailed, though by that point it wasn't what passed for eyes on the monster but rather a few inches below the sockets. The thing was still growing and that was a bit scary. It ignored any injury that the arrows might've given and it looked like it was going to give a roar. Gigi just looked on stunned at the beast. "That's huge...." she stammers forgetting to even notch a bow, feeling a bit out of her depth. Baz meanwhile was quickly digging through his two sister's quivers, they're the ones who had the trick arrows and he was hoping they packed something for lava monsters. *Animalius + Minerva Rajom- Minerva's fireblast, due to it's origin, had just enough concussive force to meet the fireball with enough force to stop it for the most part. The ball broke up and wild flickers off fire hit the ground. The effort was a bit exhausting for 'Owlgirl' but those around her were fairly thankful. Ani was a bird by this point and noticed the fireworks above anything else. She also noticed some people were gathering around Minerva to see if she was ok. "Thank you mam..." "Are you hurt?" two females ask, their clothing was non-descript but one had a glowing palm as she apparently scanned Minerva for injuries. *Red Dragon- The young hero's reflexes save him, but only just. The water meets the force, but the fireball appeared to have some kind of concussive force behind it and Dragon is knocked flat on his back. Still better than being fried alive though, the two innocents were safe for now. Still he could tell on one end of the group that a big fight was breaking out and on the other end people were pushing and shoving to escape through the entrance they had all come through originally. "nnggghh..." is heard as the woman starts to come to, she'd probably need some condolences snce she had no idea what she woke up in the middle of. The guy was still alive, but his condition wasn't getting any better. *South Star- Orion feels quite a push on him, it was incredible just how much Gravity Girl was holding up. Luckily the room wasn't any closer to collapsing in but there was plenty of something pushing on the infrastructure. Cassie immediately falls to her knees and starts to breathe heavily; she was definitely effected. Still she agrees to the plan and just says she'll be a few seconds before fighting. Luckily their job has been paying off as many are swarming for the exit and the size of the door was the only thing staving off multiple unhurt innocents. If Orion was still paying attention to the hero Blue Fang, he'd see his action(see the fight scene with most of the names), he could base his ideas on the quality there or not but he still had his job to do. Being proactive wasn't a bad idea though. Villain Orientation; While the outpost overall was heating up with altercations, the villains inside the room might be I the most direct fight of their lives. Gunfire and various energy powers were exchanged from as close as several feet apart. Casualties were definitely being had. Willow's evade tactic didn't do so well since she didn't have many places to go besides behind people. Bullets and laser shots were still generally in her direction so she needed a bit more complex of an action if she wanted to get out of this. Meanwhile DL's yell for someone to cover him while he disarmed the door bomb.....drew attention to him. At least one GTS operative was against letting him. Luckily a concussive blast knocks him over and Rose frowns. DL would take too long, so she moves the lizard aside. "You cover /me/ and I'll melt this *vulgarity*ing thing" she swears, probably not something she did often but it was justified here. She looks at the machine...figuring out what would explode on contact and what was just holding the mechanism in was a tad challenging, but she said she could do it.....how DL decided to respond was his problem. Lobby; Krystal, Hirro, Maria & co (OOC:Ham has some internet issues so I am posting what he sent me over mibbit ruinus) - Hirro and Krystal frown, Krystal's ears twitch like they were picking something up. Tundra had stepped forward over near Albatross who was coordinating some kind of plan to evacuate. Maria could hear something about a monorail and a path through the woods, if Prometheus was clever enough getting radio signals would be a piece of cake. As for Maria's original question, she nods. "Well I've been stationed here until we have some kind of evac plan solidified. One of you could stay here jus tin case....or you could go over there and be apart of the bigger plan. I can handle myself don't worry." she says with a weak smile, as she did so though she took out several color coded seeds like she was going to do something impressive with it. Kendra looks to Maria expectantly. "I just shapeshift, I got nothing..." she admits.
  18. Well he's a secret courier mind you assassins are after them regardless so that's not too big a point at least the way I'm reading it. While Question(mostly DCAU) is the more cautious one, Jonah surviving assassins is far from a new thing. If we go DCAU, Question might be more cautious but not as formidable combat-wise. DC pre-new 52 Sage is more h2h proficient but not as insane. Despite that, Jonah I think is the hardier of the two and his tracking/deductive skills aren't to be sneezed at; not as refined as a DC detective, but his wit's always served him well and this is up the Bounty Hunter's alley. I'd disagree with him leaving that obvious a trail; unless you mean identifying him; then the order of "kill this guy with a burnt ass face and confederate uniform" vs "keep an eye out for this guy who can not have a face or be red-headish nobody" might lean towards Jonah being the more recognizable one so Ill give discreetness to Vic. Still, given the scenario it's not like Jonah's gonna stroll into town, pick some bar fights, loudly proclaim he's there, then leave sloppily. He's more competent than that, it's usually trouble finding him. An to be frank, if/when assassins catch up with our couriers i wanna point out that between your average work day for hex, supernatural threats, the assassin caravan from "the six gun war' storyline which included various multi-national assassins a one point and even a run in or two with the court of friggin owls in the New 52, there's probably no distinct method of assassination attempt that hasn't been tried on Jonah unsuccessfully. Not to take anything away from Question, but I think Hex has better experience and luck with not getting killed by guys out for his blood due to his level-headed thinking and quick draw if it becomes a straight fight. Less direct methods of assassination(poisoning, sniping, etc) are something I think both guys can work through well enough to not consider all that much. I'm liking Hex marginally just because he's gonna be in it for the the long haul and his code is gonna make sure he sees the job through to the end.
  19. On top of what Ham says... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAizwLfZbUA Research guys.....don't think Zealot's that good. Ham did wiki search I agree after my research
  20. *Alice/Destiny- "godammit." Destiny scowls at the officer's statement, the sh'ra weren't giving up. That's one thing they were across the board good at; she was hoping the recruits wouldn't find that out the hard way. Not that she wanted to be down there exactly. Alice was likewise not happy with the situation; she'd probably never met a sh'ra that took getting backed into a corner well but this one time...she had hoped otherwise. If for no other reason than to extract information for why they tried the raid. "Keep communications open, any and all. If there's a stray radio signal of someone reciting the alphabet I want to know about it..." she says, hoping something would give. " *Larkin- The young marine was really wishing he had a better grip on his shotgun about now. Larkin swivels the pistol towards the closer of the two sh'ra, and if permitted he'd quickly squeeze off as many shots as he could to stop at least one of the sh'ra. He'd empty the mag if he could in the attempt, but if they were already too close, he'd try to roll away instead and gain enough distance to draw his blade.
  21. Was pretty awesome, though I wonder how the robot master powers will work out gameplay wise since there was a handful of them. From like 3 frames I scoured the video for, Pit might be getting a bit of an updated moveset in light of Uprising's weapon system. On a related note a few buddies in my area and I are holding out for the Tactician/Avatar from FE:Awakening on the Fire Emblem side of things. Swords AND tomes bitch! In general the newcomers should be awesome. @Redfield: Dammit....the power Battlefront has over me gave that 30 spot the ability to make me fanboy. Likewise for MGS 5's showcase...having a good day so far.
  22. Hero Orientation room; OOC: Don't be alarmed everyone, if there's another character name by yours it simply means your close enough to another PC to where I consider you guys in the same mini-scenario, which ideally you both will reply to. As spread out as you all are, you're all in this together and I am doing my best to take into account spatial awareness, look around long n hard for your character stuff; you should probably be reading anyways, heh. Interaction would actually be helpful, make friends, it's better than not doing so . I do recommend scrolling down to see if any player beat you to the punch posting, so you can reply off /that/ post as well. If I failed to detail this properly and there's any questions don't hesitate to revive the OOC thread w/ questions. The adventure begins, do keep tabs on this page a bit more frequently please cause I guarantee it'll get fun. Story point- The assault on Hero Orientation was in real danger of becoming a massacre, most of those inside that could move were retreating and most that were readying for a fight were in a weakened state from the forceful entry of the villains. Luckily a few people returned fire in the form of a stun grenade thanks to certain a blue alien and several volleys of gunfire. The stun grenade managed to stop the bad guys in their tracks for the moment; the gunfire wasn't as effective however. They were essentially firing at armor and the single molten being in the room wasn't exactly solid enough for the ammo to puncture anything important in it. However the two individuals wielding flamethrowers did have armor breeches and their intended targets were saved for the moment from being burned alive. One started to stand up but, in a quick blur to anybody paying attention, one was tackled into the back wall by an unknown force leaving the other dazed and injured from rounds that pierced his armor. That didn't appear to stop several /fireballs/ from flying through the air indiscriminately, proving the first assault was far from over. *Offensive group(Nicholi D. Trake, Star Patrol member Sphinx, Ursa Rajom & co.)- The young half-breed Nicholi confidently strode through the panicking arena. It seemed like fate itself was parting the crowd as he went in the opposite direction pretty much everyone else was attempting to flee to. Nicholi quickly spotted the immediate threats: four humanoid robots about Nicholi's size, a few had cracked armor and were missing hands thanks to some excellent marksmanship on the part of other fighters. The big man in armor wielding the flamethrower appeared to be downed for the moment, not a threat though even Nicholi couldn't tell if he was no longer a combatant but he was far from the most dangerous one right now. Finally the molten man was confident but noticeably behind the rest of the group, he was taking a somewhat humanoid shape and was biding time to strike himself. The threats were in plain view for Ursa, the black-bear semihuman, from his position, they were rather big overall. Of course they were also in the middle of being engaged with others in the room which he could see. Simply put, Ursa was capable of getting fairly close without catching their attention and between robots, flamethrower units and a magma man he was not out of options. Just ahead of him was a largely scarred human(at least he looked it) about Ursa's age and he had much the same idea as him. The young brawler(Nicholi) looked almost serene in personality, even from behind, as he was facing down the threats with his fists. Not far from Nicholi and Ursa(relatively) was the brave leader of Star patrol, wielding a blaster pistol. It was his shot which directly rendered one of the flamethrower units weaponless, however that as only a momentary disabling, neither the weapon nor the fighter was out of it. Still, him and three or four other folks wielding firearms had managed to open fire and wound the invading villains overall. The three independent fighters could make out the other and their endeavors if they bothered to pay attention to their surroundings. It was only a matter of time before they were counter-attacked though, time was of the essence, hell(fire) almost literally raining down on some unlucky folks made that obvious, and whether they liked it or not they all had the same goal. *Trace- Dave held up the field right up until the moment that Trace said it was no longer necessary....of course by then Dave was quite exhausted anyways, especially since he had to contend with the outside bursts. Dave drops to a knee as the shield falls. "Hope so...I'm gonna need a minute." he grunts, exhausted to the point where he falls back onto his ass. He looks up in time to see Trace with his game face on. "Hope that thing's fire proof." he snarks, pointing out what the majority of the attackers are utilizing. Two robots seem to think Trace was a big target, as they audibly peg Trace. "*zzt* target acquired**" one says as the other two bring up what look like compact mounted-guns. They whirr up for a second before opening fire on the now-large Trace. *Alec the Beetle(aka Specimen 6) & Star Patrol member Trevor- The beetle man manages to hoist up the barely conscious Samson, the raptor man had some weight to him, but he could do the job for now. Since a good portion of the folks in his area had either fled due to the dwindling odds or were out of commission, Alec easily moved a few yards closer to the nearest exit. Leading the group Alec could follow was a broad human male(Trevor) wielding a bo staff and signaling a handful(closer to two dozen that a dozen) of people to follow in a quick and orderly fashion. Trevor however found some resistance when a tall woman with some inhuman features an her small friend shoved past him and several others trying to do the more sensible thing and escape. When Alec was shoved aside along with a few others. The Atlantean female was eager for a brawl and on her shoulder she carried the small creature Alec had crushed previously, though now he had a good look at him. "Nnngghh." is mumbled from Samson, still hoisted on his shoulders and a few of the others in the group were anxious, following on instinct alone. Clearly shit was going down, but it was also clear that if given the chance Samson would jump back into the fray with the two that had shoved aside the group. With everyone else running around, it was time to be decisive for everyone in the group as the exit was in sight but almost clogged with others trying to get away. *Minerva Rajom- With Ursa gone off to do some skull smashing, Minerva on the other hand was left behind in the middle of chaos, she was surrounded by individuals injured on the floor and other folks trying to put up resistance to make sure the incoming enemies got close enough to cause further harm. Before she could make a decision on how to move, a glance upward would prove troublesome on account of three distinctly big fireballs raining down on her. None were difficult to dodge for her, however if she did nothing a number of people who clearly couldn't avoid it would be immolated right before her eyes. *Star Patrol member Kari, Fortune, Omega & co.- Kari's grenade went off without a hitch and managed to impede several foot-soldiers who otherwise would have taken advantage of the lack of resistance. Of course now she and her friends were targets now. Fortune was able to come back to senses quickly, so much so that a previously unnoticed flak of shrapnel was quite clearly in his thigh/. Thanks to his supernatural fortitude he could still move the thing, but it was probably best he handled that sooner rather than later. The blade had a blue hue still, those that lay in front of him were now trying to reclaim the offense. Several fireballs fly well over the groups heads to hit the back of the Orientation room and some gunfire is exchanged on both sides. If they didn't move it was likely one of those attacks would be focused on them next. Thompson and Drago were doing fairly well for having being as close to the blasts as they had been. Drago was able to move, and still wanting to hold the line. Thompson on the other hand had grabbed Omega and Kari by the collars and with a mean tug, more than anyone could expect out of an old man, was trying to drag them away from the battlezone; clearly worried about their safety. *Red Dragon- The young hero finds the two injured; on was worse than the other but medical attention was probably necessary. The first looked like he had his legs nearly blown off. Most of it was red and he could almost swear just ligaments and some muscle were keeping it in one place. The male looked plain-clothed otherwise and he seemed to be in shock. He was also protecting the female who was noticeably not as worse off. She was hurt for sure, but just knocked out and more or less in one piece. She seemed to be wearing a thick jacket with some kind of symbol showing out from an unzipped portion, implying super hero garb. Of course he didn't have much time to investigate either as he had incoming... If he turned around in time to a faint wooshing noise he'd see a fireball about the size of his torso inbound right for the three. With his 'sidekick' clearly out of sight he had to deal with this one on his own. *South Star, Blue Fang & co.- Blue Fang would find that two entire support columns were gone, not broken but entirely gone, however those sections of building didn't seem to be under any duress. If he had good eyes he would see Orion and Gravity Girl, two oddly dressed superheroes focusing upwards, they'd appear to be focusing on keeping the roof from falling. They were doing a very good job of it, however the female of the two was worried about other matters. While South Star was taking pressure off the load Cassie was keeping up, she looks at the carnage in front of her. "I-..I'm fine, but those people wont be..." she almost shouts, unable to completely hide the pressure she's under, pointing out that an active shootout was going on with a lot of injured in the middle(see above text for details). The heart of the hero was in her and compelling anyone in the area to help out that cause while she gave them some time. *Incoming group(Emma Fox, Animalius Rajom, & co.- Animalius brought up the rear to the almost conga line of helpers, followed by Emma and her archer posse who in turn managed catch up to the two Officers who were assigned to handle the situation; one clearly had several feline features and the other could best be described as a lizard-woman. Both were decked out in SWAT gear and approached the door where an odd couple was apprehensive about entering. They were asked to stand aside before the two made sure the door wasn't booby trapped. With that out of the way, the feline officer kicks the door down and her along with 'Liz' the other officer takes position on the side of the door for cover before entering blindly. Of course they didn't exactly expect Ani and Emma to disregard safety. "Get back here you you..." is hollered by the feline Officer Vasquez, though odds were her intended targets didn't listen how that articular sentence end. Emma and Animalius about the same time saw the situation indoors: Utter Chaos. Many individuals were scrambling to get to the entrance they had just come through, others were too busy being in combat or incapacitated...possibly dying. the villains up front were engaged in combat, though while the baddies were big enough to be identified(see above text for details), who was attacking them were not so visible from their current position. As a result, Animalius could /not/ see where his siblings Ursa and Minerva or the young Jake who followed him in were. Villain Orientation room; *Dark Lizard- The enemy leader drops from the powerful strike, he seemed unconscious for the moment. Rose doesn't take the moment to do anything else to him, instead agreeing with DL's plan. The Orientation room had a fire exit, which was a few meters past some other villains that were holing up or trying to find a good spot to counter attack, it couldn't be told whether or not fighting would erupt there. The entrance they had come through, and the only other way out of the room, was closer to them but it was indirectly guarded by the GTS assassins as they traded all kinds of ranged fire with assorted villains. On top of that there seemed to be a device one of the baddies had planted on it, some kind of explosive wired to the door frame. That might need to be handled if they went that route. "Just the ones you see....I got nothing sorry." Rose grunts, admitting that adrenaline was overwhelming her. She was fiddling with her hands. She tried to grab a weapon of the man, but she found that he had destroyed pretty much all of them. "You got a brain in that head?" she asks, snarking to break the tension. For the moment they weren't getting shot at, but the other killers in the room might take well to the fact that they just knocked out a ranking officer for their little death squad. *Willow- The 'energy warp' fires out and connects with one GTS operative. Unfortunately this did two things and failed to do one: It opened up a hole in the group she was hiding in by knocking several individuals aside, and it let the baddies know where she was. What it failed to do was keep down the target; an LMG gunner. He is knocked flat on his ass, but more determined than hurt, he turns his weapon on her and opens fire wildly. If Willow was slow enough or confident enough to have to rely on the energy bubble she'd find that the high caliber burst would put strain back on her and unless she moved quickly the shield would be dissipated with ease, she wasn't at the proper power level to be tanking military grade gunfire. A few rogue folks would fire back with lower caliber weapons, though it was more to save their asses from wild fire than to help Willow. *Lobby; Medic room(Hirro, Krystal, Maria & co.): Poor Abigail was sweating bullets, she tries to stop Animalius but it was to no avail. Tippy was spreading the information to the weasel that Ani left, but she quickly interjects. Nobody in the room could understand what she was telling Tippy, but she grabbed the weasel and scuttled out the door soon as Abby was done giving orders. Meanwhile Tundra looks to Hirro with a frown at his comment. Though she quickly realized he had a good point. "Right, I'll get on the horn, they should be able to get a grasp on what's going on where." she comments before getting on her comm for details. Abigail seemed to disagree with the direct approach. "Guys, please. Look, my boss is trying to coordinate a counter-attack herself. I swear to you I will explain everything, but please if you guys go out and try to be the hero you might screw up someone's plan in action." she comments. She was admittedly a little out of the loop, but she meant well. Tundra meanwhile was getting her own orders from GEAR. They could probably follow either one; Kendra was inclined to hear out Tundra and Maria though she did seem to believe Abby's suggestion as smart.
  23. *Alice- 'Good work Officer." she directs at Martyr. She turns to the communications officer next. "Alright, futile as it might be, see if you can flag down the other ships' bridge. Maybe sensible is in this commander's dictionary" she says, knowing the odds; but she didn't like feeling helpless either. "If we can make this go smoother, let's do it." *Destiny- Destiny congratulates her second favorite officer in the vicinity, almost bringing up the victory kiss up early. When Alice made the order, Destiny wasn't sure what the hag was up to; she of all people knew how sh'ra acted. Nevertheless, she got back to shouting around to see if she could encourage her favorite new Officer into getting things done. *Larkin- The young marine was more than happy to be saved, pride wasn't as big of a deal at the moment. he wipes hi fur of some loose slobber than had dripped onto him from his would-be attacker as he draws his sidearm. he wasn't the best or worst with a handgun, but he didn't have time to complain; t least until he grabbed his long gun. He swivels in place and tries to get himself into cover without standing up. If need be he'd fire a few shots to keep sh'ra heads down. "Thanks ya musclebound giants." Larkin snarks towards his two MA's, keeping an eye out on sh'ra who were a bit too overconfident.
