@Toric - 4 on a D6. I'm using rolz.org but not sure if there's a facility to link to an actual roll. Anybody else know of a online roller where you can copy/paste link?

Does 4 mean 1/2 damage? And do I get a divide of H/2 for my padded costume? I'll adjust HTK/HTC once I know. As to what to do next...

Yep, the 4 means Glancing Blow which halves the damage done. And good catch, I had forgotten about the divider of 2 for HTK for padded costume. This does not apply to HTC though, only HTK. So after the divider for padded costume and for the glancing blow after the dodge, Farouk takes a total of 3 HTC and 3 HTK. He loses 1 frame so has 3 to use this round.

EDIT: And don't worry about linking rolls unless you really want to. I'm trusting everyone to report their rolls honestly.

@Dumarest - I have edited the IC combat post to reflect the successful Dodge and the half damage Double Devil took.

I should be able to get the next round up tomorrow.

@Gringnr - Starchild is close enough to reach either B5 or the leader in one frame of action which leaves him with three frames for attacking.

@Bunch - Red Trident can find a way into the building from the roof and using all four of his frames, he will reach the combat on the second floor for the beginning of next round.

Starchild will attack the leader, with the thinking that "if you killed the head, the body dies".

Frame 1- close the gap to the leader

Frame 2- remove Asteroid belt from waist.

Frames 3&4- Strike leader with Asteroid Belt (whip). I think a whip takes 2 frames to use? But if time allows, I will attempt to grapple the leader with the Asteroid Belt, so that I can use its "Stunner" effect...

Edit: I rolled a 6...

@Dumarest - I don't know if Nicolette knows Tony is Double Devil. From the background you wrote up, it doesn't say. I'm assuming she doesn't know, but if that is incorrect, let me know. If she doesn't know, he just spots her among the freed hostages. If she does know, her reaction will be a bit different.

@Bunch, @Tulpa Girl, @Gringnr, and @Longfingers - Feel free to ham it up for the station manager, talk of your character's prowess, offer names, etc. Whatever you all feel like telling him. If you don't tell him anything, that is fine too, just indicate that your character isn't forthcoming with their hero name or whatever. Depending on what you say, some of your campaign ratings could go up or down. In fact, there will likely be some changes to campaign ratings just due to the fact that this battle was witnessed by so many members of the public (police, media, other assorted civilians).

And of course if anyone wants to do anything besides talk to Michael, such as maybe questioning the one still conscious bad guy before he is removed from the building, feel free.

Tony's double identity is a well-kept secret thanks to his Replication power allowing him to appear in two places at once, thus allaying any suspicions someone might have. Tony seldom uses his Replication power when fighting crime, preferring to keep it as an ace-in-the-hole and last-resort surprise.

I should have made it clearer that nobody knows.

Any thoughts or preferences on formally getting the band together, preferably somewhere away from prying eyes and ears where we can speak somewhat freely?

Well, the TV station is swarming with cops and station employees so anywhere on the premises is out of the question for privacy. Would have to be somewhere else if you wanted to talk without prying eyes and ears. Of course, DD is outside and everyone else is inside at the moment too.

On a mostly unrelated note, are there any major sports teams in New Hope? Also, what's the mascot/symbol for the University and City College?

All four major sports are represented (baseball, football, basketball and hockey) in New Hope. The New Hope Beacons are the baseball team. The New Hope Minutemen are the basketball team. The New Hope Blades are the hockey team. And the New Hope Marauders are the football team.

New Hope University mascot is the muskrat. City College is the porcupine.

Okay, this is my thought for what Gravitas would suggest to meet up later that evening. @Toric tell me if this is workable or if I'm overstepping my bounds here.

In the Highlands just opposite of City Center, not too far from the transit line, there's a stretch of land that was up until recently an older apartment complex, built back in the late 60's. KPM purchased the property, and after giving the residents the customary 2-month notice, tore down the older buildings with the plan of redesigning the area as a residential subdivision.

Currently the land is mostly empty lots, with the frames of a few houses-to-be here and there. The only completed building is the 'model' house used to show prospective buyers. Courtney Grayken knows the numeric code that will open the key storage box that holds the key to the model unit. Occasionally a contracted security firm will drive through the area, but not often enough to prevent a brief meeting remaining unnoticed. Especially with it being a Saturday night, especially if there is, perhaps, a home game for the Beacons and perhaps also a big-name concert in town.

That all works just fine for me.

I'll wait a day or so to see if anyone else has a suggestion that's a little more urban and sexy, as opposed to what essentially amounts to meeting up in the suburbs.

And also maybe something that technically isn't a B&E?

Happy weekend everyone! I will be back later this evening to post in the IC thread and move the action to the dojo for your powwow. If anyone has anything else they want to do beforehand, feel free. Otherwise, I'll move things along then.
