Spider-Man will swing through the open French doors and see what's going on now that stealth is no longer an issue.
Your Spider-Sense beating like a pagan wardrum, you swing into a huge and lavish drawing room with hardwood floors, furnished with tasteful teak shelving filled with leatherbound books and a low center table of polished metal surrounded on three sides by large chesterfields, comfortably upholstered armchairs, and plush ottomans. The scent of Cuban cigars permeates the room. On the center table you see what is obviously the crate that was just delivered from the Fisk warehouse.Spider-Man will swing through the open French doors and see what's going on now that stealth is no longer an issue.
Not use to working with others DD climbs up to the Penthouse and smashes through any available skylight or window to gain access.
"What by Khonshu is it with those two? One leaves and the other leaps in, alright Dagger, what do you want to do?"
"They're used to working alone," Dagger concedes. "Let's get up there ASAP."
Daredevil arrives only moments after Spider-Man, with the nimble Moon Knight and the acrobatic Dagger hot on his heels, all of you just in time to see Spider-Man swing through French doors that open onto the wide balcony. There are numerous open windows easily large enough for any of you to climb through. On the deck there are place settings, silverware, and a quartet of wine flutes set on a large wooden table on the beside four deck chairs. There is no food and the wine flutes are dry: obviously you've arrived before anything was served."True, as am I, hang on, I think I can take you, just not as quickly as webhead."
"Probably because it is," Dagger replies. "We should probably check to see what trouble DD and Spidey are currently getting themselves into without waiting for us." She goes to follow Spider-Man, but cautiously takes note of her surroundings, looking to see if anything is 'off' or otherwise indicative of a trap or ambush."Why does this look like a trap..?" he asks Dagger.
'Long time no see Owl, are you going to answer our questions and come along peacefully are are you going to make this difficult for us?' I say and go into a semi-crotch, ready for him or any of the other heartbeats I sense to attack.
"I expected idiotic prattle from you costumed fools and you have surpassed even my wildest expectations!" bellows the enraged Owl. He announces to the assembled crooks, "Ten percent of my share to the one who brings me the head of the accursed Daredevil! You've bit off more than you can chew this time, you crimson clown!""You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy," Spider-Man says after DD enters the room. He pauses a moment when no one laughs. "Star Wars? Came out about seven years ago? Nevermind..." He then falls silent for just a split second before adding, "Oh, and who chose the ridiculous name of Mr. Yellowhands?"
There's no indication that anyone expected your party to join them."Probably because it is," Dagger replies. "We should probably check to see what trouble DD and Spidey are currently getting themselves into without waiting for us." She goes to follow Spider-Man, but cautiously takes note of her surroundings, looking to see if anything is 'off' or otherwise indicative of a trap or ambush.
Intuition roll = 85 (if applicable)
Your ankh glows brightly.Moon Knight checks his Ankh while setting both of them just inside an open window.
Moon Knight's boomerang hits Kraven and bounces back to the Fist of Khonshu, even as the latter attempts to shoot a dart at Spider-Man, his most hated foe.Moon Knight takes aim and throws his Ivory Boomerang at Kraven, figuring he'd leave those closest to Webhead and Hornhead to them. He will choose to dodge any ranged attack in return (declared in advance)
Spider-Man acrobatically evades the charging Rhino, clings to the ceiling and spurts web fluid at his implacable foe. The good news is Spider-Man hits; the bad news is that the webbing isn't strong enough to hold Rhino when he is charging. The even worse news is that as a result of Spider-Man's evasion, the next object in Rhino's path is Dagger.Spider-Man leaps over Rhino, attempting to adhere to the ceiling above him and fires webbing at him, hoping to at least slow the big guy down.
Daredevil's billy club flies true and the cable entangles Speed Demon's legs, causing the master of momentum to utter a string of expletives forbidden by the Comics Code Authority as he trips and falls forward.DD attacks the Speedster with the cable in his billy club trying to tie his legs together to prevent him from speeding away.
Due to Dagger's sudden shift to the left, rather than becoming victim to a pummeling Rhino, she instead avoids a possibly fatal collision as the incensed Rhino's charge instead takes him through the French doors and crashing into a heap with the now-destroyed furniture on the balcony beyond.Stepping through the double doors, and then shifting over to her left, Dagger quickly sees the opposition they face, and makes a snap decision. Because she doesn't recognize several of the villains, opts to try to take out Kraven quickly with a thrown light-dagger, as he reminds her more than a little of Sabretooth. Uncertain if his costume doubles as armor or not, she specifically targets the area of his chest that is exposed.
You're right, I reckon it has been "10 turns" since all of you took damage so you each would have healed your Endurance rank. I have revised your current Health scores accordingly.OOC: was there any chance to recover any Health while we were investigating and traveling from the last fight?
Daredevil clocks Speed Demon, but the villain doesn't go down that easily.DD tries to hit the tangled Speedster hard across the jaw in an attempt to knock him out or Stun.
Moon Knight flings his scarab darts, pinning the Owl to the wall by his blousy cape and mantle.Moon Knight sees Dagger is on Kraven and the Daredevil on Speed Demon, since The Owl is right next to him he's going to fling a scarab dart(s) at him making a called shot to pin him to the wall (it says "them" plural so I am assuming its throwing several held in his fingers, nor sure.) . While maintaining his movement to keep safe from the ranged attackers. (94 on dodge) "I think you need to stay out of this bird-brain." (84 on roll Spending Karma: 16 to get to a red result on his reduced agility due to dodging.)
Spider-Man swings away from the fray in the drawing room and ploughs into Rhino just as the latter is getting to his feet and brushing debris from his shoulders. Rhino is knocked over the side of the building and far enough into the air that this trajectory will take him into the parking lot below.Spider-Man swings down from the ceiling and straight through the French doors in an attempt to drive his feet into Rhino and force him over the edge of the roof.
Despite the pain, Dagger manages to strike home again on Kraven the Hunter, who seems shocked as he slumps to the ground and loses consciousness.Initiative = 7
Stepping forward and leftward a few more steps, so that White Rabbit is behind her target in case she misses, Dagger hurls another of her namesake attacks at Kraven, hoping to help take him out of the fight quickly and reduce the numbers of their foes to a more manageable sum. Fortunately for the young heroine, her aim again is true.
White Rabbit having changed locations as she fled, I applied a negative modifier but it's still a hit. White Rabbit takes Excellent (20) damage.Grunting in pain from White rabbit's laser weapon, Dagger darts forward toward the sofa in front of her to use as cover against the lunatic in Carroll drag, throwing a light-dagger toward the woman as she does so. Despite her target using the armchair to hide behind, Tandy's aim is true.
White Rabbit having changed locations as she fled, I applied a negative modifier, so Spidey misses.Spider-Man swings back into the doorway of the penthouse, lands and fires webbing at White Rabbit to hopefully keep her from using her umbrella.
Moon Knight, less worried about the Owl, and the White Rabbit at the moment takes aim and flings his lasso attempting to catch Speed Demon before he strikes Daredevil again, still dodging along the window side of the room at his mere human pace, hoping to grab him around the arms and body to keep him from throwing punches but expecting the speedster to pull the noose tight by sheer velocity. A cunning plan forming in his mind to follow after that.
Daredevil ducks Speed Demon's rain of blows as the latter is roped by Moon Knight, the lasso pulled taut by movements of the super-accelerated offender; unfortunately for Moon Knight, he is dragged from where he stands by the amazing momentum and flung towards Daredevil.After taking the beating fron Speedster DD decides to just dodge to confuse Speedster and bring him with range of attack by one of the other supes.
You expect he might be dazed and confused, at worst, but in a terribly violent mood dangerous to any bystanders down there. The pavement, on the other hand, might take some real damage from the impact.OOC: Based on what he knows of the Rhino, how likely does Spidey think it is that he survives that fall?
