Armoury>War room
"Not a task I'm eager to repeat without practice...but it is done." she thinks as the mutant places the parts down. It has been way too long since she used her full range of abilities. Her day pretty much spent all her Inner strength, a rarity. This definitely called for some tech or mystic upgrades. Mages would also be equally drained. Once the mission was done this would be brought up with the director in a most diplomatic fashion. For now, she was content to call it a good effort and a lesson well learned. If this DAP worked they could save lives and all this would make them new friends or allies at least. The laptop was definitely top of the line and aside from a minor update to a rarely used program was in good order.

"Anytime Faraday, I hope the effort pays off. that armour could use some work. I have a little research to do myself." she agrees, "ANNA? nice name." the mutant thinks as she put her thoughts on other matters. The world had magical beings and Psychic entities as well, or one would think. Considering the fact she had 'psionic' power. She would have to put with a normal view of the world. another odd factor of her abilities was that if she was without energy her visual effects faded. They were in some odd fashion tied to her abilities and up until now never really thought much of it except as gauge to read power levels as it were. Heading to the war she paid little attention to the common room.

All these mystical shenanigans made her concerned about Psychic abilities and entities were out there. The idea of possession and other phenomena not quite mystical but supernatural was a question she had. Wi-Fi was not a supernatural being per say yet possessed power similar to magic. Seers and other powers were both magical and Psychic sharing or taking ideas from each other. How these two forces overlapped was important and considering a good number of the rogues' gallery were mystical and Psychic prudent. It would be easy to find magic on call and this was not something she could do anyway. The other aspect was the ability to read a psychic or magical crime scene.

The power of the mind, however, was something she did understand. Clarica would need a secured computer and comm system. The war room would be ideal for this use. The word "psychic" is derived from the Greek word psychikos ("of the mind" or "mental"), and refers in part to the human mind or psyche (ex. "psychic turmoil"). The Greek word also means "soul". In Greek mythology, the maiden Psyche was the deification of the human soul. The word derivation of the Latin psȳchē is from the Greek psȳchḗ, literally "breath", a derivative of psȳ́chein, to breathe or to blow (hence, to live). This pretty much meant it was likely powers connected to the soul. Magic also had that. In fact she could mimic many magic spells and abilities easily. Regarding seers mystical or psychic, they also likely tapped into the same sources to see the same information, not unlike sources on the internet taking different routes to get there.

Among other issues regarding these powers, it was wise to know how the legal system regarded them. How the current laws regarded these powers was important not just to her but to others she might help or recruit. Are they considered weapons? is possession of them considered dangerous and does one need a licence or special training? regarding the rules and laws of the supernatural as well seemed fitting. If half the myths about deals with devils and other entities were true there had to be some sort of Supernatural 'Legal' standard. The power of an oath was something to be wary of. She was always told never to make promises you can't keep or that do not benefit you or those under your charge. It was an 'evil' approach but one survival did require in order to progress. Among the supernatural magic had such laws and it was a sure bet the psychic side also did. And she thought human lawyers were complex.

entering the Warroom looked around.
(If Brute is still there)
"Hello, Good to see you." she nodded, "Studying and not celebrating the victory?" she asked, "I probably shouldn't say anything though. I 'm looking up Psychic phenomenon and laws in case we encounter them. I'm not really a mage. That is Lexie's job. Now, Psychic, I can do well." she took a seat and a placed her laptop on the War Room table. With as always were the 5 bots exploring. The one she called 'Stubby' jumped on the table near her laptop and the other four checking out the room. They, of course, were checking for security hazards and such. Other than giving "stubby" a look as he was seeming to test for metallic objects begena a search on her laptop. with a slight grumble and a comment.

"and I quote..'a self-proclaimed psychic, medium, spiritual healer and spiritual teacher. He has made appearances on radio programs, TV shows, in live casino shows, and also conducts personal readings, seminars, workshops, and retreats.' and he has an afro like that? ya...he's probably a hack.. " she frowned. If no one else was there she said this to her bots as the image was called upon the holo. One this quality just needed to be seen on holo. Once found would sort the information in a file with the headings:
Criminal investigation and laws
Psychic abilities (counters and how to spot known powers)

Jay grins as Rocket Dog jumps into the conversation, "That's kinda before my time. What I remember comes mainly from grade school history and T.V. but the version here is much larger. Mine only extends about half the distance as the one here. The development of powers made it obsolete or at most, a minor obstacle. By the era of unification..." He waggles his hand, "I think more than one powered that could control earth had plowed through it."

Jay gives the pair grin, "No what's really strange is looking up at the moon and not seeing the lights of Johnson City and its outlying communities." He grins, leaving the large opening for them to ask questions. He chuckles a bit to himself in his head, You know, I could make up almost anything I wanted and no one would know.... unless I take them back with me when I go home!

Lexie's email wrote:Hey Brute,
Hope everything's good at the Omega Base. Lucky and I are off investigating a mystical power source that just popped up on CHIMERA's radar. You're looking to build a mystical library? That's new. Start with:
Darksbane's Logs
Ley Lines by R. Blue-Light
Key of Solomon
True World by G. Latham
Between the Lines by Dr. V. Lazlo
Vheld's Tome of Power
Most of these have information that only makes sense if you believe, Clint. Let me know if you have any questions.
-L. Kent


Clint smiles when he receives Lexie's response. He quickly types out a reply.

"Lexie,

You WERE our mystical library, so I'm just looking to cobble together a poor but workable substitute, really. Thank you for the book list - I'll definitely be adding these to our resources. Stop by some time - you always have a home here.

-Clint"


After downloading and searching the books, he hits upon the quote by Latham in True World. He immediately fires off a text to Faraday and Wi-Fi.

"Team - doing a little occult research on interdimensionality. Found the following in a book recommended by Lexie Kent: 'We can never truly know what is real. What is true. I have torn apart the veil between dimensions and found what can truly never be tamed or controlled, what is always moving. Between dimensions, to and fro, always in a state of flux.'

Perhaps the FluxZone is the so-called 'veil' between dimensions? Which would mean that the portal gun's science, while admirable, perhaps doesn't fuly accomplish what it intended - it doesn't move you from one dimension to another. It only kicks you out of this one. I don't know if that affects your calculus. - Clint"


As he sends the email, Wi-Fi enters.

Wi-Fi wrote:"Hello, Good to see you. Studying and not celebrating the victory? I probably shouldn't say anything though. I 'm looking up Psychic phenomenon and laws in case we encounter them. I'm not really a mage. That is Lexie's job. Now, Psychic, I can do well."


Clint twists his mouth up in dismay. "Not much to celebrate... the bad guys have gotten away for now, and though we escaped with our objectives met... it wasn't by much. Still... no loss of life is always a good thing."

"I'm just doing a bit of research as well. Got a reading list from Lexie and found something that may be relevant to our FluxZone - just sent you the email, as a matter of fact. FluxZone might be the area between dimensions, and not a full dimension in and of itself."


He looks over at her screen as she begins her search, and sees the picture of the oddly-coiffed man. "Good lord. He looks like a psychotic Oompa Loompa. Who is that?"

If or when Clarica tells Clint the man's name, Clint will rack his memory to see if he's read anything about the man in his recent research.

Clint twists his mouth up in dismay. "Not much to celebrate... the bad guys have gotten away for now, and though we escaped with our objectives met... it wasn't by much. Still... no loss of life is always a good thing."


"Considering how deadly the order is survival is a good thing. Telling by Feather's injuries you did as well as can be expected. Any battle you can walk away from and survive is a good one. I'm still a bit bothered we didn't get to keep that Juggerman armour..but I will survive I suppose. I can still leverage a favour from the CSPD and I plan on that for sure. I saw your plan for volunteers and I did have a similar thought. a good idea we need to do." she pauses, "That said my team did good despite a merc dropping a grenade and an unintentional attempt at interior decoration by Darryl. no casualties though we did lose the plane...still haven't told Owl but I'm sure he figured it out. He looks to be a detective and a damned good one. Might call him up for tips. Can't say I'm fond the rest the Ultras..but they are not bad people either. I could be just having a bad day." she shrugs.
"I'm just doing a bit of research as well. Got a reading list from Lexie and found something that may be relevant to our FluxZone - just sent you the email, as a matter of fact. FluxZone might be the area between dimensions, and not a full dimension in and of itself."


"I was looking at the Psychic side of things. I figure we encountered magic and lots of it in a short time. It seems as likely there will be a psychic side we should know before it hits us." the woman says, "That and being psychic I am trying to find limits on just what I can do and what abilities are out there. I do have a few ideas but they need work." she added

He looks over at her screen as she begins her search, and sees the picture of the oddly-coiffed man. "Good lord. He looks like a psychotic Oompa Loompa. Who is that?"


"He was a Psychic healer and seer in Las Vagas a long time ago named Gary Spivey..a showman and fraud likely but does say he was a spiritual healer and spiritual teacher." she paused, "The number of real psychic back in the 19th and 20th century were not as high as today. If they existed at all. Most were stage magicians or actors. That hair makes me glad I have none. and he does look like an Oompa Loompa..." she grins.

As Faraday is conversing he reviews and respond to the email with negligible loss of attention to his surroundings.

That is an interesting possibility. I don't think there is anything we currently know about the device which would contradict such an assertion. And several things that correlate. From everything I've read on the subject dimensional forces are stubbornly unpredictable yet there are theories that this is only the appearance of chaos because of the interaction of any and all myriad possible dimensions and their various circumstances and the results exerting unforeseen force on the fraction of dimensional phenomena that we can observe. The functioning of this device is well beyond conventional scientific bounds and without this particular element to fuel it would still be useless. Regardless even if you are correct and the device simply pushes the target into this verge between dimensions we have zero data about what the properties of such a place might be. It could have put our missing person into a safe and comfortable stasis. Or it could be a void almost totally lacking in energy or matter and thus they would have been dead in moments. It would be dishonest we have any real ability to predict the properties of such an unknown dimensional location."

Though I would like to shove someone through the door and find out.

Wi-Fi checks the email and reads it and thinks about a flux zone. It made sense a buffer between planes and realities. Like Limbo and Sigil. They served as places between planes to prevent clashing of elements. The para-Elemental planes also did this. Of course D&D was not science but the idea of it made sense.

"If they do have a place on another plane it would make sense to have a portal end there. That said a fortress or base made to stay between dimensions with a portal would be very hard to breach and even harder to get to. I think your right about the veil. We need know as much as we can. I'd say sealed suits with an air supply or at least a shield to travel through in case its not human friendly. If we have time send a scout of some sort..a drone with sensors might work well for that. If its a person we tie them to our end and be ready to pull them in." she thoughtfully adds, "Also a keyword, Object, image, phrase or song to focus on should help. Something to look for in that warped reality. Similar to a dream or hypnosis with an escape or reset trigger.

Faraday quickly answers again.

Interesting ideas. I agree with hazard protocols for any people sent through, it seems like a fairly basic level of precaution given how little we know. I also am quite fascinated with the prospect of hiding a stronghold away in such a place. It would be nigh unassailable and make surveillance even impractical. It is a fascinating prospect. If there is such a fortress, seizing it would be a coup of staggering proportions against such an established group as The Order. And what it could do for us? The scope of such an accomplishment could not be overstated. We should carefully evaluate how we might go about targeting anything we find and make no assumptions about the totality even of what is present there, or where it may connect back to in this or another dimensional space.

If it is possible for them ... it is possible for ME.

Barney says, "I have only one question, but it will take a lot of effort to answer. I want to know how accurate the stories are...for the ones you know about. It can wait until I have the database set up probably."

He wishes he were better at programming. He will set up a help request sent to the others asking if they can help with a data search routine to locate "real" mythical stories as opposed to modern stories involving mythical characters and themes.

He will send off a request to various institutions explaining that he has a desire to set up a comprehensive mythology database and requesting that Anthropology students studying different cultures take part on the creation of said database.

He starts by setting up the data fields, things like name of deity, most common culture, Other names of deity, and then starts with more detailed information per each story...such as Zeus becoming a Bull and becoming a Shower of Gold and raising clouds around the world to block Hera from seeing him cheating. Each story will then have references to similar stories involving other deities...in case humans of various cultures spread the tales around and got confused as to which deity actually did what. Each story will also have a first recorded listing by author and date if possible.

The idea is that, when the database is finished, you can enter the name of a deity or other mythical character and find out what they can most likely do. Obviously it will be a long term project, which is why Barney is trying to farm as much of the work out to others as he can.

Anthropology 1d100 = 76 of 55%

Faraday shifts his attention back to Spiderweb for a moment, seemingly interested. "I could likely assist with the construction of the database and indexing functions. And some of the research perhaps. I confess I'm interested in the subject as well." he says, smiling slightly.

All too keenly interested...

Barney admits, "Help will be appreciated, given the sheer number of different tales in all the cultures of history, it is going to be an enormous project."

Hundreds of cultures, at least four thousand years of history...likely no one person could do it all in a lifetime.

Heading through the common area, Faraday interjects himself into the conversation between Spiderweb and Battletoad. He sees that she is reading (and highlighting passages from) the classic novel, Slaughterhouse-Five. "Oh, hey Faraday!" She shifts in her seat a little and faces Faraday. "Thanks! You weren't so bad out there yourself! It got pretty heavy. Spiderweb's capture of Major Assault was important as well. As for the homework, it's hard, but nothing I can't handle. To be honest, it's a nice break from the hero stuff."
Spiderweb wrote:"I have only one question, but it will take a lot of effort to answer. I want to know how accurate the stories are...for the ones you know about. It can wait until I have the database set up probably."

"Yeah, you probably want to talk to my mom about that."

Spiderweb:
Barney sits at the computer and works on finding reputable organizations regarding mythology to request data from. He sends off some e-mails and waits for a reply.

Wi-Fi and Brute:
Wi-Fi presents an image of a psychic to Brute but Brute can't recall anything about the man. Wi-Fi conducts some searches online and finds that there are fewer psychics in this city than any other type of hero. This results in there not being a store or location that specializes in psychic lore.

Everyone:
Fatigue starts to get the best of you all and sleep becomes a requirement.

Faraday:
Faraday wakes up to a low-volume, mid-pitched beep on a 15 second cycle. ANNA has information ready for him. He looks at his freshly repaired armor on the way out of his room, proud of how much he was able to get done in a day.

Checking in with his station in the Armory, ANNA pulls up a single article regarding Sarnium/Element 157. And nothing about the Fluxzone. The article is from the website OffTheRecord.net. Published by Samson Delilah, it chronicles Dr. Sarnhoff's expulsion from Century Station and raises the question “What are the repercussions of alien energy in Century Station?” Not much to go on.

Looking at the plans for the DAP, Faraday finds it to be a perfectly crafted piece of machinery. On paper. The circuits all make sense.

The analysis of Element 157 is complete. The sarnium is hyper dense, fissile material, that radiates heavy charmed lambda particles. There's something else interesting about it however. It seems that the tomographic report is listed as having completed at 3:26 pm on Saturday, March 21st, 2043.

With all of this information, Faraday now has one more obstacle to tackle. Procuring the components to repair/recreate the DAP. Once he has everything, he estimates it will take him 4 hours to complete the build. With help, of course. 10 hours solo.

What are you doing?
Let the GAMES begin.

Last Night
Clint realizes he's packed at least four days worth of consciousness into just this one 24 hour span, and begins to feel the strain. He sees about lodging for the TFU - putting them up in empty Omega bedrooms as necessary - and then heads off to bed himself.

As he climbs into bed, his body filled with ignored-until-now aches, he immediately tumbles into a deep sleep.

As Brute drops quickly into REM sleep, the events of the day cycle through his mind.

Brute finds himself astride a wire destrier, surveying the bleak landscape of Hell. He cannot see them, but he knows his companions, Ronith, Tyral, Marcus, Sentinel, John, and Birger, are nearby.

A pair of black ravens land upon a branch nearby. Thought and Memory. Huginn and Muninn.

"You're late."

"He's watching you."


Clint cocks his head to the side. Who he begins to ask himself, but they are gone, and he knows the answer anyway. He rides on through the fog, and sees, in the distance, the Labyrinth. The entrance too small for horses, they dismount, and enter. They make their way among the wrack and ruin of the once-proud arcology, to try for the source of the power at its center. He has a small army behind him: Elves. A giant. A wizard. A golem. Some folks from the future, some from another dimension. Others.

They make their way further in, and come to a room he recognizes. It's in a spacecraft. Presence is on here somewhere, and Brennet. Brennet? Brennet! Good god, Brennet! How did I forget? The source of the power is nearby... but the ship appears to be disintegrating even as they walk through. Fire is everywhere, choking, consuming. How will we find the power source now? How will we rescue Silicate?

He sees mechanical enemies rise up. One of them breaks apart into numerous small spiders, that scurry to swarm their position. Clint tries to turn on his powers, and can't.

You will NOT defeat us! he howls in rage, and draws a pair of magic pistols from their holsters at his belt. As he fires, he is overrun with mechanoid spiders. No! Must find the power source! He hears the screams of his teammates, smells their blood through the soot. He swings his fist, trying to crush the enemy...


This Morning

... Clint falls out of bed. Disoriented, he wakes up, largely unrefreshed, body still knotted with pain. A dream... he thinks, but one message from the dream persists. Despite his great strength and power, he feels fragile as he drags ass off the floor and into his bathroom for a long, scalding hot shower, to be followed by however many painkillers tumble out of the bottle. Standing in the steam, the soothing hot water rolling off his shoulders, he hears a voice reverberating in his mind.

"He's watching you."

Something about that part of the dream has the ring of truth - and he thinks immediately of the ring, Draupnir. Odin watches. A part of his consciousness, buried deep, echoes I serve the Father. He turns off the shower, towels dry, and foregoes the painkillers.

Now feeling somewhat refreshed, he slides into a fresh Omega suit and ambles off to the kitchen to see about breakfast.

If he sees any of TFU hanging about, he invites them into the mess and begins (trying) to rustle them up some food. he lays out an array of fruit, some danishes, and makes a pot of strong coffee for everyone.

"If anyone is comfortable cooking, you're welcome to do so. Trust that I'm doing you all a service by not inflicting my cuisine on you." He grabs himself a pair of danishes and a banana, and sits at a table, his muscles aching.

"Hope everyone had a good rest. Once Faraday's got the gun rebuilt we'll embark onto stage two of this endeavor, and get you your friend back. Until then, take things easy, and let me know if you need anything."

Barney says to Battletoad, "Perhaps you can introduce us some time, it is bound to be interesting for me...though possibly less so for her."

Barney, with help from Faraday, works late into the night, setting up the basic database so that entries can be made and evaluated. It is not his forte so he heads to bed before it is really finished. When he gets up he goes and eats breakfast, then does his exercises before resuming his chore. Even when the basic setup is done, it will need to be tested and checked before any real work is done with it.

He checks his E-mails to see if anyone has replied, but does not see anything yet.

Night:
Research:

Wi-Fi presents an image of a psychic to Brute but Brute can't recall anything about the man. Wi-Fi conducts some searches online and finds that there are fewer psychics in this city than any other type of hero. This results in there not being a store or location that specializes in psychic lore.


Nothing? she thought, I figured there would be something..Well. Better to solve this with a clear head and a full nights rest behind me. The woman was not happy with the answers but would remedy that later. There had to be some sources, even if she had to leave the city.

Breakfast:
"If anyone is comfortable cooking, you're welcome to do so. Trust that I'm doing you all a service by not inflicting my cuisine on you." He grabs himself a pair of danishes and a banana, and sits at a table, his muscles aching.


"You people need to watch more Youtube or live in a mob for a few months." Wi-Fi grins, "If my hard earned skill at cooking eggs and making toast is the best we can muster we are going to starve or die of lack of malnutrition." looking at the others and decides to attempt actual cooking. Eggs, toast and all else failing Poptarts maybe?

"Hope everyone had a good rest. Once Faraday's got the gun rebuilt we'll embark onto stage two of this endeavor, and get you your friend back. Until then, take things easy, and let me know if you need anything."


"Indeed, we should call the CSPD or military for some of their sealed armor. In case the air is unbreathable. at the very least rebreathers and sealed up Omega suit. many of the Order don't breath or have access to powers that protect them. I'll put the request in after breakfast. Wi-Fi adds, "I'm going to be wearing a bat-inspired suit with pointy ears and chasing clowns by the time I leave this team, won't I?" she asked looking to Brute and Faraday if he was in the room as well.

Barney comments, "While I can make food that will not kill you out of nearly anything, I can not claim that it will necessarily taste good."

He has wilderness survival, not cooking, so food he makes will be edible...but not necessarily palatable.

Barney quips, "If that is your way of saying we are driving you Batty, then probably."

"Could be a worse fate than going local here. You all seem like nice people. and tolerate my occasionally bossy attitudes and the odd toe stubbing from robotic spiders." Wi-Fi responds as she looks at the eggs. I really need to get cooking lessons. this and hamburger helper will not do to feed the troops. she thought, of course, like last time she did not have the time. it seemed like she would need to do this for real. not youtube videos.

"Clint, you have all the prep work done?" she askes while watching the food cook. field kits, breathers and omega suits with a bit more oomph than the current ones would help. They didn't show up yet and the bald mutant was hoping to not need them yet.

As she was there the sound of small metal feet were heard and two robotic spiders looked about as they entered the kitchen. she looked at her bots and went back to the food. Given this trend of escaping it would be good to put locator beacons on each of the five bots. They did need upgrades and paint jobs as well.

The five little bots despite their villainous origin and programming did work. Holo-emitters and better vocal comms for starters were going on that list of improvements. The other three likely slipped out as of her room as well. It would be easy for them. the two in the kitchen that did find her would be on Comms with the three not here. Stubby already radioed his fellow bots as Wi-Fi thought it. As if on cue the other three slinked into the kitchen looking up and around.

If I am not careful I may find myself liking this young lady more than I should. Attachments are not wise, yet we do not always choose them. I am beginning to think this one may be out of my hands.

Faraday smiles and nods towards the book she is reading. "An interesting work, though no more perfect than anything else. War is unpleasant at the best of times. Yet I doubt we are done with it yet by any means. Conflict is as human as anything else we do." he says, his eyes shifting towards thoughtful as he pauses in his spiel. His manner seems deliberative for a moment, considering his train of thought rather obviously, before he continues. "In the morning I'll be going over some results and putting together my analysis of the device and specifications. You would be welcome to join me and assist. I should be quite pleased in fact. Now if you will both excuse me I need to get this armor repaired before I need it again." he says, inclining his head slightly before turning to give a more brusque nod to Spiderweb before turning and heading back towards his quarters.

In The Morning:

Faraday gets up to the sound of ANNA's alarm, early in the morning, and smiles to himself. Time to work, and more. Reaching out and grabbing his phone he triggers the voice command dialogue. "ANNA, how are you this morning? Sounds like we have some things to do today." he says lightly as he works his way out of bed. "I can't wait."

The phone responds audibly with ANNA's animated face appearing on the screen. "Yes Dr. Rearden. I am excellent, thank you for asking. I completed my assigned tasks and then scheduled some maintenance processes that required I power down, as you suggested. I feel well rested. You have reports on the completed research in your inbox when you are ready. You seem to be in a good mood this morning. Should I be jealous?" Her voice is light and playful, with a hint of teasing to it.

Faraday stands, taking the phone with him, and stretches before heading towards the shower and quickly going through the motions of getting himself presentable. "Never darling. You'll always be special to me." he says around a bemused laugh. Then he rapidly sorts himself out all the way to suiting up in his newly repaired armor. As he does so ANNA briefs him on the reports and research she completed over the evening. As he finishes putting on his boots and starts buckling on weapons he turns to look towards her with another smile. "Well done. Order some breakfast for delivery while I head back down to the Armory. Something nice for everyone. Ah, I know just the thing. Some cajun style crab omelettes with a light hollandaise sauce. Some hash-browns and fried tomatoes on the side perhaps. And coffee with chicory and beignets." he says, thinking through the breakfast order as he finishes buckling on his weapons belt and slinging his rifle weapons into their stowed positions.

"Ordered Dr. Rearden. And now I know you like her. Would you like me to order her flowers as well? Breakfast should arrive within thirty minutes, I found a small restaurant down at the fisherman's wharf that serves a variety of cajun and New Orleans style dishes made to order. You can thank me later Dr. Rearden." ANNA says in a tone of if anything even greater amusement than before. "Shall I alert you when the order arrives?" Faraday smiles again. "Please do." he says before swiping closed the interface with her.

- - -

Faraday Enters the Common Room:

Faraday walks out into the common room and seems mildly surprised to find it heavily occupied already. He moves with his helmet slung under one arm yet otherwise dressed for battle with his weapons all serviced and in place. His armor likewise is obviously repaired from the battle worn state it was in the previous evening. "Good morning team. How is everyone? Hope you all are as hungry as I am. I took the liberty of ordering breakfast for everyone, I hope you don't mind." he says, giving a bemused expression. Quietly he walks towards the table and sets his helmet down. "Brute, Wi-Fi, I have some further information to go over. A possible lead as well. But we can discuss that in the Armory after breakfast."

Having warned everyone what might be expected, Barney proceeds to attempt to locate suitably nutritious materials and attempt to make something that could be considered food out of them.

Cooking 1d100 = 100 of 35%
Survival 1d100 = 53 of 55%

Barney manages to lay out a collection of fruits, nuts, and cold meats and cheeses. He tries to do some actual cooking but decists after setting off the fire alarm.

"Director,

We have gleaned little information about the region known as the 'FluxZone' where TFU member Silicate has reportedly been transported to, save that it is not in our dimension, and has mutable physical properties. In an effort to be prepared, I would like to request the following:

* sealed HAZMAT suits for each team member
* SCUBA or other self-contained breathing apparatus

Faraday is working to get the portal gun repaired, and we will be ready to deploy once it is completed.

Thank you.

-Clint"

"I'll put in a requisition."


She nods and continues to finish the eggs she started. No point in wasting them or missing time to practice.


Clint smiles. "Already? You DO work fast. Right on, I'll swing by the armory after breakfast."

After breakfast, Clint sends an email to Director Balisong and Lance Steele before heading to the Armory.


"He works efficiently and precisely. I like that in a good XO. One of the reasons he is on the job. Speaking of upgrades..we need to look at Stubby and the spider bots..they need holo-imagers to make communications easier. But they can wait for that lead of yours to be managed." she adds.

Faraday was efficient and the best suited to Bravo research. The new talent arriving if any would be an unknown quality and not assigned yet. This was an ideal project for Faraday. he struck her as one who liked to be busy and this project was something to keep tabs on.

Faraday smiles and chuckles as he moves to claim a seat at the table by putting his helmet down in the chair. "I shall have to live up to such praise." he says warmly. Reaching up to stroke his beard he is distracted a moment as his phone chirps twice. Then ANNA's voice can be heard. "Dr. Rearden the delivery driver says he is at the door." Quirking a brow Faraday smiles. "Thank you ANNA, that was fast." he says before turning and heading to the door.

The brief exchange with the driver takes only a few moments yet leaves Faraday encumbered with the large amount of food. He seems if anything only more amused as he struggles with the bags and tries not to let anything spill or be upset by his handling. "I am anything but a cook. In fact I rather dislike doing anything more sophisticated in the kitchen than pouring myself a cup of something. But I do appreciate good food." he says, his manner jovial as he unpacks all the cartons from the bags and starts doling them out to anyone who wants one. "I took the liberty of ordering something I like to share with everyone, and I hope you enjoy it. Ah, I hope no one is allergic to crab?" he says, as if the idea has only just occurred to him.

"Food!"

Once the food is doled out to everyone he proceeds to pouring the chicory coffee before taking a seat and digging into his own plate. "This whole business with Sarnium has me quite curious. We don't really know how it works, or where it comes from. Some speculation I've been reading has conjecture that the energy bleed out left over from Dr. Sarnhoff's devices and experiments here in the city are the source of this element. And that could explain why it has such an unstable nature and rate of decay." he says, his tone excited and thoughtful at the same time. He devours his own omelette with gusto first. "It also would explain why Century Station is the only place to get it."

Faraday smiles and chuckles as he moves to claim a seat at the table by putting his helmet down in the chair. "I shall have to live up to such praise." he says warmly.


"I'm sure you will manage too somehow." she said with a smile back then looks to her food.

Modesty..a good trait. something I should work on. Too much practicality and Wi-Fi would end up like Thrawn and lack any political savvy. Arihnda Pryce as her political advisor would help about now. Though in later arcs she does get very pro-Empire. If she had joined the rebels the woman would still be too practical for the rebels. Thrawn also would have such problems...heroes could be so difficult. If they did pull more triggers there would be less bad guys to keep in prison to escape and kill again. As it was the omegas captured and so would she. Besides they were good people. Even the werewolf was okay.

"I took the liberty of ordering something I like to share with everyone, and I hope you enjoy it. Ah, I hope no one is allergic to crab?" he says, as if the idea has only just occurred to him.

"Food!"



"I am not allergic to seafood. suits me fine," she commented with a nod, "Probably better than my eggs and toast.." she grins.

"This whole business with Sarnium has me quite curious. We don't really know how it works, or where it comes from. Some speculation I've been reading has conjecture that the energy bleed out left over from Dr. Sarnhoff's devices and experiments here in the city are the source of this element. And that could explain why it has such an unstable nature and rate of decay." he says, his tone excited and thoughtful at the same time. He devours his own omelette with gusto first. "It also would explain why Century Station is the only place to get it."


"Then we need to find his lab after the mission to secure it. who knows what else is there that might be a threat. Bravo team could do that after the rescue. I have mages, psychics, and Hightech so it should be easy. unless you want Alpha for that, Clint. We can talk later though. Right now...food," she adds and thinks, Or benefit us or the order. His old lab would be a nice back up to hide in if we need to provide the order didn't do that already. hide in plain sight and all.. she looked at the food and tried some. Pretty good, but not something for daily eating. It has a taste she would not like to get too used to lest it becomes less special.

"Clint, how are things? I admit I've been a bit focused on team matters," she asked, "Have not been too social in the last week. and who picks the movie?" she added with a sly grin.

(rolls carried over)

Clint sets his danishes and muffins aside after the real food arrives, and digs in.

"Thanks a bunch, Faraday." He flashes his characteristic thumbs-up to Faraday, his new copy of the ring Draupnir glistening on his hand.

Wi-Fi wrote:"Then we need to find his lab after the mission to secure it. who knows what else is there that might be a threat. Bravo team could do that after the rescue. I have mages, psychics, and Hightech so it should be easy. unless you want Alpha for that, Clint. We can talk later though. Right now...food,"


Clint considers this for a moment. "We need to think about that - if his lab is not in Century Station, it's technically out of our jurisdiction, though I agree it needs to be found and shut down. Once we know where it is and have some idea of what we're facing, we'll decide which team goes in. If not both."

I may need to better balance these teams... Could use some magic and technical knowhow on Alpha. No sense hoarding all the skills on one team.

Wi-Fi wrote:"Clint, how are things? I admit I've been a bit focused on team matters. Have not been too social in the last week. and who picks the movie?"


Clint shrugs. "Since yesterday? Not bad. Got a lot to process." Although in human form, Clint briefly extends his antennae, wiggles them for a moment, and retracts them. "But, no one died yesterday... Except maybe Presence? "... so I can call yesterday a win, even if only barely. I suspect I'm due for an in-depth debrief with Balisong and other high-ranking government officials, once they read my report. As to the movie," he smiles, "...I'm down for whatever."

Once we know where it is and have some idea of what we're facing, we'll decide which team goes in. If not both."


"We are technically a US team. As long as we don't threaten the local heroes or population and play nice 'Where' is not a factor I'm worried about. It is who we send I am more concerned about. My short list only has three people so ya I'll need to expand on that list before we decide. intel will be needed that should expand the list. With any luck, today's mission will give us a lead." she nods in agreement. taking a bite and pushing one the robot spiders from under the table.

It looked about and began to explore again. Looking for what only its logic processers could tell anyone. the other four were sticking to the fridge like fridge magnets. the other four imitating fridge magnets made Wi-Fi look puzzled and shrug before resuming her meal.

Clint shrugs. "Since yesterday? Not bad. Got a lot to process." Although in human form, Clint briefly extends his antennae, wiggles them for a moment, and retracts them. "But, no one died yesterday... Except maybe Presence? "... so I can call yesterday a win, even if only barely. I suspect I'm due for an in-depth debrief with Balisong and other high-ranking government officials, once they read my report. As to the movie," he smiles, "...I'm down for whatever."


"Presence is tough and a survivor. She is probably fine considering her impulsive nature and good instincts. Whether we see her again is anyone's guess. Movie wise Thinking anything not including mummies, emo-teens with submachineguns. or reboots they tend to be terrible." she answers a smile back,

"I shall have to live up to such praise." he says warmly. Reaching up to stroke his beard he is distracted a moment as his phone chirps twice. Then ANNA's voice can be heard. "Dr. Rearden the delivery driver says he is at the door."

"I am anything but a cook. In fact I rather dislike doing anything more sophisticated in the kitchen than pouring myself a cup of something. But I do appreciate good food."


"I have little concern over how well you will do. Your precise and plan things..I like that trait. As precise and efficient as you I suspected a chef. So are you a Grand Admiral Thrawn with a secret art collection or Sherlock Holmes with a violin hidden a closet?" she asks with a curious look at her XO. this was all done with a sense of trust towards the man and genuine curiosity about him. She did take note if the fire alarm did go off and would shut it down if needed.

Faraday smiles appreciatively to both Brute and Wi-Fi in turn as they speak. He finishes his main dish wasting little to no time about it, then helps himself to a cup of the chicory coffee and a couple of beignets. "I've a rough estimate of perhaps a day or two for total repair time on the device. However that is after all materials necessary are available. I'll draft a list of what we will need to effect repairs after breakfast and send it to both of you." he says quietly as he sips his coffee. His demeanor turns thoughtful, something else seemingly occupying his thoughts briefly.

I don't think I can take bowing and scraping to these petty officials for much longer. I shall have to start building my influence farther. Higher.

Shifting in his seat he leans back a bit, nursing his coffee, and gives a thin and seemingly satisfied smile. "I think our team work is improving. And having the extra help along for the mission was rather helpful as well. Any debrief items from how things went out there?"

(Rolls maintained)

"That is a good start. pretty sure we can speed that up. The Owl and Impulse looked like they have some skills that might speed it up. We should consider asking them now we have a grasp of the design. Besides the detective probably could use time among people...he seems a bit anti-social. And I suspect we will see more of our new allies so getting on friendly terms with them is a wise option I think we should pursue." she stated with a nod and grins at thought of how the Owl would cope with the Omega's various personality traits. She did respect and like him, even if he was gruff.

"Teamwork is much better. Ideally, we should be able to say one word and act as whole. Given the complexity of that, I do have a notion or three. Clint, do you recall that 'grab and fly' stunt we pulled against Daddy Long Legs? I want to try that. With so many flyers we can pull it off. Sentinel, you in particular with your duplicates we will work on that. Some football or military coaching would help overall to that teamwork idea as well. Don't you have some experience with that?" WiFi asks.

"As of now, Bravo team will be online gaming as a group. Might be good to get to know one another in addition to getting more in sync tactically. I have a few games in mind...World of Warships or Emperyon should do I have standing accounts in both games. a few others as well. It may sound odd and immature but I do believe it will get Bravo team to learn each other's tactics and how we think. A lot can be learned in how a person builds a house..and that sort thing is what will improve Bravo team." she pauses.

"Sporting wise. The Omegas should have a weekly football or soccer game to better improve teamwork and coordination. Besides its fun and could help unwind social and personal stress. " she notes and expects some sort resistance..but felt the idea was worth doing.

"The mission went as smooth as expected. Darryl's redecorating and the loss of the plane aside Bravo kept the damage down. Webs, you did quite well on the force-field. Timing is everything and we did that well. The other thing I noticed in the tunnels was we all fired randomly or it seemed so." Wi-Fi comments. 

"I'd like to get a set-up like the ones the Navy SEAL's use to better use our teams' firepower. Staggering and allowing people to reload or recharge while others are shooting would keep our enemy pinned better. I would like to include powers and abilities that are ranged in that practice. A focus should be working in pairs and three's as well. Giving our enemy multiple fronts can set up crossfires. I never have believed brawling was wise. Maybe I'm getting too much Batman attitudes..but combat without purpose is a waste of energy." she added with a nod, "Overall, we did do great considering all things and how I spread us out." she smiles and looks at the food again taking a bite.

MINI-UPDATE

Wi-Fi, Brute and Faraday share a nice breakfast while discussing yesterday's events. Wi-Fi sets up a video game party for her team.

Faraday notices that Brute is wearing a ring that has a pattern that he has seen before... but where?

Cascade enjoys a solid workout in the gym. The sparring mats are particularly enjoyable as he is able to fully let loose without worrying about hurting a real live opponent.

Brute notices the absence of TFU members in the Common Area. A look outside shows that Future is leading them ALL through a Tai Chi routine in the Memorial Garden.

What are you doing?
Let the GAMES begin.

Clint's listens to Clarica's debrief with interest.

Wi-Fi wrote:"Clint, do you recall that 'grab and fly' stunt we pulled against Daddy Long Legs? I want to try that. With so many flyers we can pull it off. Sentinel, you in particular with your duplicates we will work on that. Some football or military coaching would help overall to that teamwork idea as well. Don't you have some experience with that?"


Clint nods at the mention of the flying stunt. "Alpha's low on fliers... I suppose I could reorganize the team rosters, but it's a good tactic to have in your back pocket, that's for sure. And... yeah... I captained a football team briefly in high school. I already draw heavily on that scant experience in my current role..." He chuckles.

Wi-Fi wrote:"A focus should be working in pairs and three's as well."


Clint nods thoguhtfully. "Battle buddies. I'd thought that as well - Good to have someone dedicated to covering your ass. We should get on that as well. I also thought about designating combat roles... you know, air support, ranged, defense, et cetera. But I don't want to limit our agents' versatility. We should look at how special operations groups like Delta Force or the SEALs operate. Whatever we find, we're going to have to adapt for urban, superpowered engagements."

After breakfast, Clint sees TFU doing a group Tai Chi exercise in the garden. He watches them in admiration. They move as a unit... the exercise lets them connect with each other, in a way... I need to find something like that that could work for the Omegas. I don't see them doing any Tai Chi as a group any time soon. And... I wouldn't be the one to lead them in such an activity. I'll need to think about subtle team building activities, and how to implement them, I guess. Not everything works for every team though.

Clint then remembers Clarica's suggestion of a weekly football game. He smiles. I'll put a sign-up sheet on the notice board. We'll have to draw up some rules on power usage. He chuckles. Because if we disallow powers altogether, some of us can't play.

With that, Clint turns and heads to the armory. Faraday has the project on lock, I'm sure... but there's no harm in seeing if I can help with any of the scut work.

As Clint enters the Armory, He greets Faraday. "I'm here to help... I'm no engineer, but I'm a fair electrician and I'm handy with tools. Put me where you need me." With that, Clint will employ his skills as directed.

Postby Spiderweb » Sat Nov 03, 2018 5:37 am

Spiderweb finishes breakfast and says to the others, "Teamwork tactics are probably a good thing to practice, like when Wifi and I were working to contain the cyborg. We should practice with each pair when it comes to buddy defense: you never know who you might wind up working with. I have a lot of things useful for working with others, both in and out of combat."

Barney is a pretty versatile character. As long as he is Spiderweb, he can see the invisible and resist thermal attacks. His Spiderwebs can be used to travel, attack, capture, or can be used to construct and reinforce. His Bone power is mainly defensive, but he can throw bone shards and create bone claws or a bone spear...and when armored he has enhanced strength. Then there is the spear, not only is it a powerful weapon able to hurt any enemy, but it can project force fields, force people to tell the truth, let the bearer see in the dark, vastly amplifies the bearer's strength, lets the bearer speak all languages, and returns when it is thrown. The spear can even be used by others of Barney lets them...and being indestructible it makes a great lever if you need to do something like move a truck off someone.

He frowns thoughtfully, "Actually, if someone who lacks decent physical attacks is working with me, loaning my spear would be a decent thought. I am powerful enough without it for most fights. We should have others practice using it. We can also optimize interrogation by having our best person asking questions in the language of the person being spoken to."

Faraday finishes his coffee and beignets quietly, taking his time and giving attention to the byplay between the two team leaders and the debrief from his own. Eventually he interjects himself. "I have no complaints on Bravo however Wi-Fi is pretty technologically competent herself. If you need any such skills on your own team Brute, you might consider reassigning me." he says before turning towards Wi-Fi and replying to her directly. "I am also a skilled pilot and ... my facility with weaponry of nearly any variety seems to extend to mounted weapons and gunnery as well. So if we had a transport I could pilot it and provide supporting fire as necessary. As for the rest I think it will come in time and team exercises like you already appear to have in mind."

Faraday then stands from the table and moves to throw away his food container and put his coffee cup in the sink before moving towards the door and slipping outside where the Teen Force is performing their taichi exercise. As he stands from the table he slips his helmet on over his head and the mechanical seals hiss slightly as it pressurizes. Inside the helmet he boots his HUD as he walks forward. Quietly he uses his HUD/helmet systems to take a photograph of Brute's ring, zoomed in for detail, before he departs the room.

"Hello Dr. Rearden. Did you enjoy breakfast? I tried to find a good match for what you were looking for." says ANNA once their link comes online. Quietly, audible only inside his helmet, he replies to her. "Yes, it was very good ANNA. Thank you. Also the Bravo Team is going to be doing some gaming today, I am told. Keep a link up to whatever they are playing and I'll give it some spare attention. It shouldn't be too challenging to keep up with while I work. Ah, yes, and meanwhile compile a list of components, materials, and fabrication needed in order to complete the repairs to the dimensional device. Do a supply chain search in CHIMERA and SECTOR resources to check availability and let me know the results when complete. I need to know how difficult it is going to be to get the necessaries for effecting the repairs." he says.

Once outside he moves to the side to watch the Teen Force exercise without interrupting it, sitting and crossing his legs on the ground a fair distance away. His eyes, behind the mirrored surface of his helmet, settle on Battletoad and linger more than he himself realizes. "Dr. Rearden, I have a preliminary list for you based on the work we did yesterday on the schematics and evaluating the damage. I'll put it on display on your HUD." she says, her tone eager and cheerful at having completed her task so quickly.

Gesturing lightly with his hands in order to interface with his HUD computer system Faraday takes the list of necessaries, reviews and makes a few minor corrections, and then includes it in a message to Brute and Wi-Fi.

"Email to Brute & Wi-Fi"
CC & DO,

I have assembled a list of what will be needed to effect repairs to the dimensional device. It is appended below. CC we will need a requisition for the items before we can begin, so that might be most effective if submitted with your endorsement. All specifications are included in attached files. Let me know if there is anything further I can do for you in the interim, however the items included are a non-casual manufacturing requirement that I don't expect will be complete on short notice. It requires production facilities and supplies we do not have available on site at this time.

  • Magazine (Ammunition receptacle) produced to specifications (Also, as Faraday wishes to adjust the design to significantly increase the containment of the radiation leakage from the device he wishes it manufactured from particular alloys/elements)
  • 6 Circuit boards produced each to individual specifications
  • Focusing Lens produced/cut to specifications

V/R,
Faraday


His spare attention doesn't leave Battletoad or the open connection to the Bravo Team gaming activities which appear to have not commenced just yet. Idly he contemplates the ring and the curiosity it has sparked within him. Inwardly to ANNA he speaks. "Begin a visual database search regarding this item." he says, providing her the photograph of the ring. Then he examines it in detail with as he monitors her search. And watches Battletoad. And lets further schemes simmer in the back of his mind. Perhaps now would be a good time to contact the Fabricators regarding his business plan? Or Chief Rickles, for some manner of contrived collaboration?

Work continues on the repair of the portal gun - however, Agent Faraday has identified crucial components which are necessary for project completion (see attached email).

Kitchen:
"I should probably see what is going on in the armory. these five here," she points to the spider Bots "need a paint job and check up." As Wi-Wi-Fi spoke they explored while two of them hung from the ceiling to act as a cable for their fellow bots as points to climb off the fridge and get down with. Wi-Fi looked on at them grinning.

"Clever little bots.." she comments, "Spiderbots, let's go." and she left with her spiders behind her.

Spiderweb finishes breakfast and says to the others, "Teamwork tactics are probably a good thing to practice, like when Wifi and I were working to contain the cyborg. We should practice with each pair when it comes to buddy defense: you never know who you might wind up working with. I have a lot of things useful for working with others, both in and out of combat."


she listens and lets Brute take that comment. Wi-Fi had already spoken and put her support to better training. It was nice to see her team back her up on that idea. Even if game night in World of Warships didn't go over at least the idea was clear.

He frowns thoughtfully, "Actually, if someone who lacks decent physical attacks is working with me, loaning my spear would be a decent thought. I am powerful enough without it for most fights. We should have others practice using it. We can also optimize interrogation by having our best person asking questions in the language of the person being spoken to."


"I go to an archery club 3 times a week I have some experience with a spear. Throwing and some melee combat. I'd go more, but all the programming work here for the bots and my gear keeps me busy. Well never too busy for DnD group...but ya, busy." the woman said with a grin.

Armory:
"Saw your Email. Nice to see you solve those problems quickly." Wi-Fi added,"not that I expected any less . You seem very focused and have very high standards. EVen above your usual standards. I can appreciate such dedication. You need any help programming wise I can make time." she offers clearly impressed. Entering with her usual spiders with her. They as per normal looked about and were in spots to monitor the room. Stubby as usual at her feet.

"And where is the paint around here?" she spoke to no one in particular, "Need to make five spider bots more 'omega' colored and number them. they look alike and that might be a problem in the field. I'll need black and blue pain I think.." she looks about for the paint as the conversation takes place.

[Rolls Held]

Faraday makes a few more gestures interacting with his VR interface, opening up an audio call with Brute and Wi-Fi each individually. He continues working on his other tasks and switching his audio output between each respectively as he engages in each conversation via his VR controls.

To Brute
Presuming Brute answers the call. Also if acceptable I am assuming that previous comments directed to Faraday as if he were in the Armory are delivered on the call.
"Commander. I wanted to revisit that virtual training idea you mentioned at breakfast. It hasn't left the back of my mind since and I think it could be a really beneficial training tool. Perhaps it would be worth discussing and establishing requirements and considering space on the compound to devote to any potential apparatus involved? I think the project is interesting besides. I wouldn't mind taking on the role of administrating the program and running training scenarios for the others. Ah? Thank you for offering to help. I appreciate it. Yes, there are a few things that could be beneficial as prep-work"


To Wi-Fi
Presuming Wi-Fi answers the call. Also if acceptable I am assuming that previous comments directed to Faraday as if he were in the Armory are delivered on the call.
"Thank you. I believe in what we are trying to do here. It was why I wanted to be an engineer to begin with. Like I told Rickles. Ah? Your bots? Hmm. You want help with the color scheme? Or, you know my specialty is robotics and weaponry. Primarily in power suits and their weapon systems designed to let normal people fight supers. But I could take a look at your bots and maybe give them some upgrades sometime as well, if you are interested? I promise there won't be any pink legs. Unless you want them."


Once this task is finished Faraday opens another interface in his HUD begins opening a secure/anonymous connection into some of the less savory information sources out there.

Barney jokes, "If you paint them black and blue, they are going to get called the Spider Bruises."

That one was too obvious to miss.


"Funny...I'll remembers the name and maybe paint one to match your costume." she grins joking back moments before her phone rang, "I need to take this call. And I did set up a game session to help with our teamwork...Hope you like sinking boats to the bottom of an ocean... " Seeing the image of Faraday on it suddenly was interested. She did this for all of the Omegas to easily be aware of who was calling her. Wi-Fi needed to pick a ringtone for him and bravo team...but for now, she answers as she leaves.

But I could take a look at your bots and maybe give them some upgrades sometime as well, if you are interested? I promise there won't be any pink legs. Unless you want them."


"I could use a hand with the spiderbots...and maybe I should give them a name like the swarm or something involving the number five. If you can get holo-systems so they can display visual communications as well as send audio that would help. Not sure what I can do armor wise...Guessing you might have options. putting you on speaker I still need to get some work done on the audio and visual packs. we can use them as flashlights if I can get the power drain solved." she answers placing her phone to speaker. Putting 4 Audio and visual packs out and her laptop open and on the table she looks at the phone. these four would concept upgrades just incase they did not work out.

"I have a thought. that Isotope...can we make it into a battery for other items? I have thoughts on the Omega suit. Nanotech repair mode so it can be rebuilt by touching items to extract matter to repair. Might even be able to have it a device that makes the suit on demand and stores it in a ring, belt buckle or another device like a phone that can be a comm device for the suit. Would that be plausible? Considering the criminal ID system Darryl started using Gramercary's database? It might be a good way to integrate that into our battlefield awareness using a phone. A phone can be carried in civilian ID..sort of like an Avengers Card only more useful." she asks booting her laptop. She also had a plan and start up work for the idea ready to show...Which she was happy to show Faraday and anyone interested in helping.

"Gotta love USB Hub...ever so useful," she adds With a few keystrokes started the laptop and linked the pack to her computer via a USB hub added to her laptop. As all this happened the bots were once more looking for roosts to monitor the door and cover ground. 3 went up to sniper spots and Stubby and one other took up a patrol.


She had three major goals:
1. better Encryption and Programming for the packs
2. Better Battery power
3. Better casing for the packs
This would be for concept testing and then Wi-Fi would put in an effort to mass produce once the successful result was in.

Clint nods, the slight discomfort at being called 'commander' registering only temporarily on his face.

"That'd be great - we'd need someone with good technical know-how and a solid grasp of tactics, and it seems you fit the bill."

After Faraday and Wi-Fi begin discussing the particulars of their projects, Clint excuses himself. "All right - it's getting a little over my head in here, so I'll leave you two to it."

Clint exits the armory, and heads to the common room. With no pressing duties on his plate for the moment, he sits down on the couch and begins flipping through the TV channels to see what might be on.

Weather: Outside: Sunny, warm, bright (55 degrees Fahrenheit)
Time: 9:15 am

The coffee flowing and the powered sugar from the beignets getting more places than anyone really wants, Brute, Wi-Fi and co. continue to enjoy their breakfast and chat about team tactics, formations and more. Spiderweb pitches in with a few ideas and a good idea about loaning out his spear for battles to enhance others abilities while holding on to some of his own.

Faraday watches the Tai Chi happening while simultaneously drafting a message to Brute and Wi-Fi regarding his needs in the dimensional gun project. ANNA begins an extensive search through many databases to attempt to match the picture that Faraday took of Brute's ring. So far, nothing. Maybe a better picture from a different angle might help. When attempting to find a line to some less altruistic contacts, Faraday finds his first hurdle. The Omega Base's communications network and all communications that come in or out of it are routed through their own private network. It's not possible to make a phone call, send a text or even look at a picture online without it traveling through the Omega's Private Secure Network. To make this happen, he'd need to be somewhere else.

Brute shoots off an e-mail to Director Balisong and gets a reply fairly quickly.

"Good morning Clint,
The type of facilities you need can be found quickly in one of two places. Triton Industries or Centurions Headquarters in Whiz Kid's laboratory. Your team screwed up relations with the Centurions, pretty massively I might add. Apex still won't tell me what happened but I see that you aren't talking. So unless you can get your head out of your ass and present the biggest apology the world has ever seen, that's off the table.

Second option is Triton Industries facility, The Harlequin. Which means dealing with the Council of Industry. Which means that I have to pull strings and call in favors. How important is this piece of tech and what are the applications of it? Know that if it's built at Triton, they will figure out a way to claim ownership of either it or the designs.

Possible third option: Korashi Technics. They have plenty of high-tech doodads and maybe they could make or already have your components.

Let me know how you want to proceed.

-Director Balisong"


Wi-Fi sits down with her Spiderbots and attempts to figure out a concept for a new communication method. She opens her drafting program on her laptop and comes to the realization that the scale of what she's trying to accomplish is beyond even her capable skills. There are just too many concepts that she doesn't even know how to start to wrap her head around to be effective here.

When Brute hits the TV, he finds that the WCTV Channel 9 is on. The popular show, Real Housewives of Century Station is currently showing. About five minutes into the viewing, there is some breaking news. "We interrupt this program for breaking news. Just five minutes ago, the scene you can see behind me in Waingroh erupted as an unknown villain just caused an massive explosion in what looks to be a bank? Wait, I think we can see them coming out through the smoke. Two armored men! One with big guns and the other has to be over 10 feet tall! Wait, who is that that just blinked in next to them? It looks like they have another cohort!"

There are just too many concepts that she doesn't even know how to start to wrap her head around to be effective here.


"This is huge. I'm looking at this from the endgame and from the aspect of hardware. Not my specialty." the looked at the spider, "I need to keep this basic and get a plan then see what I need. Okay, the program of identifying and comm protocols is easy and the phone only needs a good camera and fingerprint reader. I figure we can get that supernatural and archelogy database added as well. It would be easy to set up a server here in house to manage it. Multiple servers and even provide it a dedicated power source it should be fine. That is something I have experience with. Start there...Nanotech.." she smiled as she thought out loud.

One her major flaws was she liked to have her hand in all aspects of the creation. It was not a good nor wise way to do this. as a selfish leader, it would leave people with bad feeling and worse not feel useful. Also, she did have people around who were talented engineers. Ones able to do a far better job than her. It was time to be a team player..and owe up to the fact she could not do everything...Wi-Fi would have to learn to trust others whether she liked sharing ideas or not.

"Faraday, do you know Nanotech well? Brute wanted a regenerating suit. I think between you and Sentinel if he is still around, might be able to have a suit like that. I was thinking that it can be craft by using junk and cloth in the vicinity of the device the nanotech is stored. Like, say a phone. I plan on using a phone for a comm link. I am no robotics, AI or armor expert. You on the other hand are. So is the Idea feasible?" she spoke with a shrug. the idea was in comics and sci-Fi but did seem practical.

"I do need a backpack to carry the spiders in the field. I might need a hand with that too. I read machines not actually fix them or create them well. Should be harness around her to do that..Can even add my mini-router to it." she added.

Clint opens the email from Director Balisong.

He reads the email and sighs. Okay... I can try to make things right with the Centurions... and that's a thing I really should do, as team leader, but I shouldn't wager the mission's success on it. That leaves either Triton or Korashi... Let me do a bit of background on them and see what the best bet is... and while I'm doing it, I can gather all the humility I got so I can go apologize to the Centurions.

He pulls up the search engine on the CityNet terminal and prepares to do some initial research on Triton and Korashi.

Computer Operation 57% 1d100 = 78 (FAIL)
Computer Operation 57% 1d100 = 56 (SUCCESS)

Research 67% 1d100 = 84 (Triton Industries - FAIL)

Research 67% 1d100 = 80 (Council of Industry - FAIL)

Research 67% 1d100 = 90 (Korashi Technics - FAIL)
Research 67% 1d100 = 9 (Korashi Technics - SUCCESS)

Intelligence 54% 1d100 = 14 (Rumors about any of these organizations having illegal or covert dealings - SUCCESS)
Streetwise 64% 1d100 = 45 (Rumors about any of these organizations having illegal or covert dealings - SUCCESS)

---------

Later, as he processes his findings, and flips on the news, he sees the breaking news story about the supposed bank robbery by three bank robbers. He leaps to his feet, dashes to the War Room, and sounds the alert.

Intelligence 54% 1d100 = 15 (who are these attackers - SUCCESS)

"Omegas, we have a developing situation in Waingroh, and we are needed immediately!" Then he calls up CSPD on comms, and reports, "This is Clint Jackson of the Omegas, Have a transport meet us at Omega HQ, and show us en route to the scene in Waingroh. Over."

He immediately goes to wait for CSPD transport, and tells all the Omegas who respond, "Situation in Waingroh is this: We have an explosion, and at least 3 armored perps. Perhaps a bank robbery. Time to move out."

With no further ado, he boards the transport, ready for action.

Barney hears the call:
"Omegas, we have a developing situation in Waingroh, and we are needed immediately!"


As is his nature he does not hesitate, he grabs his staff and invokes the power of, "Anansi's Fang." The Invocation immediately transforms the staff into a magical spear and he, himself, into the powerful Spiderweb. He uses his webs to transport himself quickly to the departure area and says, "Spiderweb, reporting for duty."

He listens to Brute's situation report,
"Situation in Waingroh is this: We have an explosion, and at least 3 armored perps. Perhaps a bank robbery. Time to move out."


He is currently in his basic uniform, an Omega suit accommodating Anansi's magical costume. He is keeping the bone armor for later, given our foes are armored it will likely be needed.

He looks to see who else is joining the mission, tactics will vary depending on the available team.

Cascade walks into the room, towel around his neck and freshly showered from his work out, when Brute calls out to the team.

Brute wrote:"Omegas, we have a developing situation in Waingroh, and we are needed immediately!"


"Roger that!" he shouts as he double times it back to his quarters to suit up and grab his gear. When he has all of his stuff together he hoofs it to the meetup spot for the team, noting to Brute, "Ready!"

"I have a few thoughts on a suit for me..going to probably need help. It is to house the Mobile hacking/Router I usually use. Considering I have up to 5 power-hungry little ones to feed...so to speak. I think something more power efficient will be needed. a small battery like on portable Defibrillators and some medical equipment should suffice. Put a plugin and USB charger and it should charge nearly anywhere. I'd like solar as well..but that is a big panel to be effective." she taps a few keys and sends Faraday the images then speaks.

(Images are not my design and remove the bunny ears and arrows/bolts on the arms. the headgear will be for interfacing with tech and spiders visual and her usual long coat.)

"It already matches most of my old gear and we can upgrade that. The omega suit should hold most of the hardware with minimal support." as she awaits the response from her XO. The call came in.

He immediately goes to wait for CSPD transport, and tells all the Omegas who respond, "Situation in Waingroh is this: We have an explosion, and at least 3 armored perps. Perhaps a bank robbery. Time to move out."

At the waiting area:

"Armour huh? good to know." and texts Faraday (if he has yet to arrive.), "I've been thinking about our problems with the omega suits and the self-repair issue you mentioned to me. I'll need to get Faraday and Sentinel on it. Nanites are beyond my ability to make but they should work. If they can get the Nanite program and AI sorted I have no doubt they will solve the simple problem." she adds with a nod.
Faraday (if he has yet to arrive.)
We will limit to anti-Armour weapons that are safe in a city if the armory has it. That laser pistol from our ranch raid and grenade launchers should help.


"Any response to our request for the last components on that D-Gun we need to finish?" she asked Brute looking around and nods to Spiderweb. Her nest Long coat over her Nest gear and Omega suit she adjusts the coat and a harness with her mobile router set up. over her shoulder a bag holding spiders that were moving slightly as she turned to Brute and smiling before putting the hood up and snapping it down.

"This hood doesn't make my head look wide does it?" she asked with a slight chuckle.

Clint nods. "Balisong sent me a list of facilities that can make 'em. I ran a cursory search on 'em, and when we're back from Waingroh, we'll put together a briefing and decide what to do."

Clint smiles, tilting his head. "Ya know, I think it does." He chuckles.

Clint nods. "Balisong sent me a list of facilities that can make 'em. I ran a cursory search on 'em, and when we're back from Waingroh, we'll put together a briefing and decide what to do."


"Sounds good. We might have more work for them if they can do that." she adds, "Am I the only one who dislikes the Waingroh District? Then again I was wasn't born here..." she shrugs.

Clint smiles, tilting his head. "Ya know, I think it does." He chuckles.


"Brave or honest..both good traits. " Clarica smiled back. then looked to see if there was a response to the request for the laser rifle yet.
