I'm inclined to go down there and get some answers; think I should have the stealth skills to keep an eye on them until Harry is safe at court. Any arguments why that'd be a really stupid idea? I mean, it's the same if they actually follow us, but I really don't feel like letting them go back into hiding if they're not inclined to keep up with us.

Are you talking about having Nisha spy on the White King's men? How does Nisha intend on doing this? Our Characters are in a van hundreds of feet in the air. It's a cool idea if you can pull it off, but when in doubt, I like to keep the party together (must be all of those Dungeons & Dragons games I've been a part of). Then again, I don't know what Nisha can do and Nisha is part of Dreamy's mind-link.

What precisely did you have in mind, Sil?

Well, conceptually, I want to jump off the van, fly down onto the rooftops, and then keep an eye on their vehicle from there. Maybe get closer if the opportunity arises. In theory, one could call one of the others over (think it'd be a good idea to continue speaking with Rebecca while we still can - has anyone considered that the FoJ-headquarters might be a good place for her to be safe, for the time being) and see if we can turn things around and get those thugs for interrogation purposes. You know, I mainly see these well-prepared folks down there and I'm thinking: I don't want to give them a second chance to strike without having a clue what they're even all about. And at this point, we know nothing.

Now obviously, that'd leave Dreamy alone and thus more vulnerable, but I'm counting on the surprise effect there; I doubt they expected us to escape through the air or it wouldn't have happened. I mean "never split the party" isn't a saying for nothing, but I feel like we shouldn't let the White King get away with this attempt, and Harry needs to reach the destination.

Well, I'm not really an advocate for "never" splitting the party (for one thing, the GM already split us); I just want a really good reason behind the split and I think you've presented it! I say go for it!

As for having the governor's daughter in the FoJ HQ, I think that's a great idea! It's the safest place we know plus she would probably get a huge thrill out of it! Good thinking, Sil! =)

Again, for the sake of clarification, and this time just because it seems appropriate, I'll be waiting until Psychie posts to post myself.

I'm not sure if I have much to add to discussions about the practicality of this idea or that- I'm not an expert planner, and I don't know how much I want to influence things too much with my out-of-character meta-comments.

I was planning to give Psychie the chance to make some kind of call with the sparse information we sent over; Dann might want to share Dreamy's version of the happenings as well, I reckon.

Good idea, Sil! It appears Nisha, Dreamy, and company are completely out of danger. I will try to put something out later today.

I'll do some spying, just waited to let the others react first. Don't know if I'll be able to get a post up today, but I should get to it tomorrow at the very least.

So, what's the organizational structure of Genocide? Would Chaser have to roll a knowledge skill to know?

Are the two of you heading to the intersection where the five gunmen were at, or are you going to the courthouse to meet Dreamy and possibly Nisha?
Part of me wants to say that Chaser stays behind to ask those questions he thought of, but in the interest of not splitting the party (again) right away, especially since he doesn't have the link, he'll go to the courthouse.

Two thoughts:

Psychie Psychie QuickSmasherEXE QuickSmasherEXE Sherwood Sherwood

1. Does Genocide have any kind of social media presence, and if so, would Chaser (given his background) get a bonus to his chances of knowing about them?

2. Perhaps Luminary should stay with the governor's daughter while Chaser comes to assist?

Good questions!

1. Genocide does exist on the 'dark web' and does some recruiting, so it is possible for someone with social media skills to have some ideas on their general manifesto. If Quick wants to give me a roll, you can see if there is any information that you might have on them.

2. I don't know... I just work here.

Genocide is (theoretically) based in the United States, and is therefore doing its best to both recruit new followers and stay under the radar of law enforcement.

You would be making a 11- roll to come up with info.

Right, so that's an attempt to roll an 11 or lower on a d20? Can I get a quick reminder on how the die roller build in to the site is used?

Its made on 3 six sided dice. Hero System only uses the d6.

Once you have made a post, go into it and edit it. On the left hand side at the bottom is the option to 'roll dice'. You can then pick the number and faces of the dice to roll.

Should be. Personally, I think it'd be good to ask Rebecca those questions now - who knows what happens while we're trying to chase thugs. And given that Chaser can't communicate via thoughts, he'd be a good choice for the talking, right? Besides: I'm doing the split-the-party thing anyway.

Good roll.

Genocide is a very violent anti-mutant group, advocating the immediate elimination of all mutants worldwide. They have access to top of the charts technology and weapons, with special gear designed specifically to target mutants, shutting down their powers.

The group uses a chessboard theme to their agents and top end members. The leader is the White King, followed by the White Queen, Black King and Queen, and their Bishops. The rank and file soldiers are labeled Knights (which are agents in advanced power armor), Rooks (agents that have been upgraded with cybernetics), and Pawns (agents with heavy weapons).

The scary thing about Genocide is that the agents are your typical American; waitresses, auto mechanics, lawyers and other blue and white collar people that all hate mutants with fanatical level of spite.

It wouldn't just be Rebecca, but also the governor and his wife, if possible.

Why do you say that?

Now, I don't think Luminary has said anything to indicate to Chaser that there is in fact no emergency or that Genocide is involved, but that seems like a relatively small obstacle to overcome.

Good roll.
Hooray. Knowledge. Does Chaser know why they hate mutants so much?
