GM NPC ZIB (HERO FACTORY)
IC Kathrine - Comm Tower:
"Most of them are being corralled by the Brains, but they're unharmed for the moment."
The tremor hit, and I pulsed my thrusters to remain upright.
I looked over the box. the tangle wires didn't seem very helpful.
"None off the top of my head. Zib, you make anything of this?"
IC John Striker - Under ground:
Whatever was happening, it was happening fast. Striker increased his pace to a jog, moving through the tunnel.
"Those look like cables used to transmit data over a network connection." Zib helpfully suggested. "However, the communications network on Tranquis is entirely wireless in nature - and also really dysfunctional. I've tried to reach the other towers on this frequency, and no response comes up."
"I would think that they were trying to set up a wired communications network somehow - or stop one from working properly, given the tears in the wires. But I don't know where they would be on Tranquis, except in the other towers themselves."
"Ah, that's it! They probably took all the cables out of the wireless towers and put them in this one, then fortified it so no Hero could break into it easily. Then when you guys broke in, they went to go get it so you couldn't restore any communications except through this one tower."
GM IC JOHN STRIKER
The stealthy Hero ran into an area where the top ceiling was metal. A beastly howl sounded up ahead, sounding contented and satisfied. His night vision revealed a ladder up ahead as well.
GM IC ??? (BULK AND STRINGER'S FORMER CAPTOR)
Its form shifted. It was no longer a prison guard, nor was it a powerful beast. No, it would need a more suitable disguise. Or maybe none at all. Maybe he should just blow his former employers to bits. But Project Sunstorm was so...small as to be almost beneath his notice. What was a destoyed Hero Factory here or there?
Energy crackled as the villain assumed the shape of one of his employer's worthless drones. So pathetic. His excess mass siphoned off into a black hole, one of the tricks an old friend had taught him.
Character Type: Hero
Powers and Abilities: Enhanced Speed, Dexterity, and Durability; Jetpack that allows for short, controlled bursts of flight between periods of automatic recharge.
Weapons: Twin Plasma Cannons - Pulls in particles from the surrounding air and supercharges them before firing condensed slugs of Plasma towards their targets. While lacking in both rate of fire and accuracy at longer distances, they more than make up for it in stopping power and the ability to induce burn damage. Each weapon is capable of expending ten consecutive shots before they overheat, and it usually takes about ten to fifteen seconds for them to cool down in that state.
Appearance: Riot is covered head to toe in red, orange, lime, and dark green armor that fits snugly against his frame. The areas around his shoulders and chest were constructed to be thicker and stand out more in an attempt to draw enemy fire towards the more protected sections of his body, and he also possesses a thinner, transparent layer coating the outside of his Hero Core.
You really need to get a bio into this character before I can approve it. (If you want tabla rasa in here, you can just say that you character was just constructed yesterday or expierienced a memory loss.
GM IC TRACIA
Tracia walked down the stairs and back into the hotel, past a few of the brain-controlled who were thankfully asleep.
GM NPC KARTER'S ROBOTS
IC (As Electro): "##### these robots!" She shouted as her arm waved out of the way and ran to the right. *These robots are tougher than I thought... I wonder if the other heroes have it easy.* Her frustrations willed her to strafe right and lunged at the robot with her blades extended.
The shots entered the robot, and the sword lunge took it out, sparking.
The others in the area grouped around the tower's entrance, firing lasers at Electro and Reyna.
OOC: Villain profile for approval.
Name: Jack Plasmid
Powers/Abilities/Weapons: He wields a launcher filled with a capsule of plasma. His goggles provide a resistance to bright lights and his armor is designed to resist extreme heat.
Appearance: The rogue hero has bulky orange feet, thighs and two orange spikes on each shoulder. His silver armor protects his shins, chest and arms while the rest of his body is white. Plasmid's goggles have light blue lenses and a navy blue strap. There is a bandolier with plasma capsules slung over his torso.
Biography/Personality: Faulty heroes have been in production since the creation of hero factory. Normally, they are melted down into scrap metal or broken for spare parts, but if a hero appears to be normal at creation, they are allowed to begin their service. However, flaws become more prominent over time and these irregular heroes are often hard to fix or capture.
Plasmid was branded a criminal after he began to verbally abuse civilians, attacked his squad leader during a heated argument and used excessive force to kill a villain during an arrest. Recently, he got his hands on the plasma launcher and an unregistered spaceship for travel. Jack is aggressive and takes pleasure in yelling and fighting other people.
Location: Tranquis VII
Powers, Abilities, & Weapons: Extrax's primary ability is his modularness. Any part of him can be removed painlessly, with the exception of his processor and power source, and he can assimilate other peices of technology into his form through contact. Currently, he has two main arms, with two smaller longer ones coming out of his back that each hold a blaster cannon.
Appearance: Varies. but he usually resembles a mix-and-match of all different colors and styles of parts. See note about arms above.
Bio: Extrax was an experiment to design a Hero that could be more easily upgraded. His original chassis was nearly identical to a regular Hero's with the exception of a Quaza Core. But when he saw that they cared about his abilities rather thne him, he went rouge and escaped to a nearby parts junkyard, where he upgraded himself and later stole a ship. he has mellowed out considerably by now, and mainly pities HF operatives rather then despiese them. Unless they attack him, in which case he is entirely merciless.
Location: Tranquis, but he has his own ship.
. Ship approved for now as long as it has no weapons on its own, it's not bigger than a Hero dropship, and he doesn't drive it off into interaction blue yonder. Otherwise, not happening.
Yet. If you have any ship ideas or ship pilot profiles, do save them. Hyyypppe. But don't post 'em yet.
GM IC EVIL BRAIN CANNON
The evil brains on the cannon were confused. A hero had flown up to them and didn't attack but randomly started talking to someone else.
But he was right there, so the cannon fired straight at Marcel Bolt.
