Re: [IC] [Supers!] The Age of Aquarius


Stuart sighed as he parked his car. Frankie had told him to meet at the warehouse, claiming he had a big score set up. Stuart didn't want to work a job tonight; he honestly didn't want to pull any more jobs.

He hesitated by the car, debating whether he should just leave. He'd been considering getting out, and starting fresh. Maybe his take from this big score would give him enough to get out of town, and start fresh.

Cursing to himself, he started to cross the street to the warehouse, where Frankie and the rest of the crew were waiting. "Just this last time, then I'm done" he muttered to himself, before opening the warehouse door, and stepping inside....

Stuart Hansen

The job was garbage, and Stuart should have pulled the plug way before everything hit the fan tonight.

A few months ago, Stuart hooked up with Frankie “Pecks” Francesco, a small time hood. Pecks was not too bright, but he was good muscle, had a good crew, and always seemed to have excellent leads on thefts of opportunity. With Stuart acting as the brains and Pecks and crew acting as the brawn, they had made a few good hauls.

Then, Pecks got a girlfriend. Her name was Barbara Marceau, and she was one of the most vicious and conniving individuals Stuarts had ever met. Still, he thought he could handle the “little lady.” How wrong he had been.

As he opened the warehouse door, he was greeted by Pecks and company. “You look like you’re having second thoughts Stuart,” Barbara said, pointing a snub nose .357 in his directions. “You got two choices at this point, buddy,” Pecks added. “Help us break into this vault or die in a pool of your own blood.”

As they walked toward the east wall of the warehouse, Stuart quickly realized that Barbara was calling the shots now. “This place is owned by a couple of guys that do that SCUBA thing underwater,” she explained. “These guys keep a lot of the treasure they find in a secret vault. Well, it ain’t no secret now.”

They brought him to a trap door they had uncovered on the east side of the warehouse. It opened to a tunnel. “Tarpit,” you stay as a lookout,” Barbara commanded. “Scooter, you search for anything valuable up in the offices upstairs. The rest of us are going down here.” That meant there was Stuart, Peck, Barbara, and five of the rest of the gang in that tight tunnel.

After about 20 feet, the tunnel ended in a vault door, complete with combination lock. “Open it,” Barbara demanded.

As he was contemplating the vault, something strange happened to Stuart. One second he was looking at the vault. The next second, he was on the shore of a mountain lake. A beautiful naked woman rises up out of the water. “You must get the Financial District. Hurry, people are in danger!” her soothing but urgent voice beckons Stuart.

Then Stuart was back in the tunnel in front of the vault as everything began to shake, clumps of dirt falling around him. “It’s an earthquake,” he told Pecks and Barbara, “We’ve got to get out of here!” “We’re not going anywhere until you get that vault opened,” Barbara hissed at him, menacing him with the gun. Why was she suddenly surrounded by a strange glowing aura?

Marcus

It had been a long war, and the enemy was getting truly desperate as they were more and more surrounded. Just as the Germans had done in Europe, the Japanese were trying to develop top secret “super” weapons, no matter the cost in human life.

The Japanese Army Marines were reportedly developing some type of super weapon.
As part of the Office of Strategic Services, Marcus had been ordered to infiltrate their base at Hiroshima and try to steal the plans. He had been recruited even before the war had started, and had spent the entire war in Japan, getting information back to his superiors in the United States.

Just as he had broken into the warehouse on the docks, all hell broke loose. A nuclear fireball erupted above the structure, incinerating the roof and blowing his body into pieces.

Time stood still then, seemingly forever in fire. Marcus noticed an aura around what was left of his body. Concentrating, he started to harness the energy of the nuclear explosion. After what seemed like an eternity, he was literally able to pull his body back together.

The next second, he was on the shore of a mountain lake. A beautiful naked woman rose up out of the water. “You must get the Financial District. Hurry, people are in danger!” her soothing but urgent voice beckoned Marcus.

Then, he was back in the warehouse, but it looked somehow different. The ground was shaking. It was an earthquake! In front of him, a person stood over a trap door on the floor. The person looked Caucasian though. What was going on?

Grace Clements

Grace had decided to spend the night at the warehouse office. The warehouse was just off the marina where the boats were, and she had an early morning outing with some Japanese tourist fishermen.

Rather than staying at her place up north, Grace preferred to hunker down at the office. There was a cot in there for just that purpose.

As she was sleeping on the cot, Grace had the strangest dream. She was on the shore of a mountain lake. A beautiful naked woman rose up out of the water. “You must get the Financial District. Hurry, people are in danger!” her soothing but urgent voice beckoned Grace. She awoke feeling very strange. The ground was shaking. It was an earthquake!

Her first thought was to get out of the old warehouse as soon as possible. She quickly ran out the door and down the stairs.

Unfortunately, a strange man was coming up the stairs. He didn’t look very friendly, with his greasy hair, t-shirt, and blue jeans. Who was he, and why was he in the warehouse?

Re: [IC] [Supers!] The Age of Aquarius


Grace Clements

Grace, barefoot and wearing pajama bottoms and a t-shirt, hesitated for a moment seeing the stranger on the stairs, her mind still thick with the cobwebs of the dream and reeling from being rudely shaken out of it. The woman knew trouble when she saw it, however, and suddenly wished she hadn't left the Louisville slugger back in the office. No time for that now, though, not if the place might come down around their ears.

The tanned blonde acted quickly, on instinct, when another tremor rattled the place. "Mister -- look," she cried, jogging towards him, "I don't know what you're doing here, but we've gotta get outa here! It's not safe!"

With everything shaking around them, the goon called "Scooter" looked like he briefly considered Grace's request. Then he apparently reconsidered the odds and the fact that the building seemed to be holding up.

"The boss is going to want to see you!" He lunged up the few remaining steps between them, trying to grab her.

Grace Clements

Though not completely unwary, Grace wasn't ready for the man's bullrush. She was an athletic young woman, with long, strong limbs and good reflexes, but in an instant she found herself gathered up by her assailant, her arms trapped at her sides. Heart racing, Clements quickly realized that the earthquake might be the least of her problems -- so she fought, and fought hard.

"Let... me... go!" she shouted, gritting her teeth, kicking and struggling in the man's burly arms. That was when the woman first felt it -- felt the change inside her. As her fear and anger mounted, something else did too, a power deep within her that sparked to life, that crackled and threatened to go nova, lighting the woman's eyes in the dark as a buzzing hum suddenly filled the warehouse, seeming to come from all over.

OOC: Athletics Roll to Avoid Being Grabbed... 7 -- failed to avoid the grab. Figured it was a stretch to have her defend with her as yet undiscovered powers just yet. And having him grab her plays nicely into that, because in the next round I'd like to use Paralysis 4D to lock the creep in place holding her for a few long and uncomfortable seconds, until she switches to a full-on 5D Energy Control blast -- ideally blowing him back away from her. But before all that there might be initiative, or any one of a number of things I'm not thinking of. Hopefully didn't take things too far here. Great start so far!

Stuart Hansen

Taken aback by the vision, Stuart hesitated. He could tell Barbara was just itching to shoot him in the back. Feeling sweat dripping down his forehead, he contemplated his next move...

"I need to get outta here fast" he muttered to himself".

Suddenly, this inky blackness started to come from all over his body, engulfing the room....

Marcus Kuromizo

Agent K hesitates for a moment as the vision fades and he once again inhabits his body. He looks at his hands, fully expecting them to be covered in horrible burns but instead he sees that he is unharmed.

He turns his attention once more to the caucasian man. He begins walking quickly towards him, expecting a trap, his hands clenched and his steps light on the balls of his feet.

"You, who are you? Answer me!" he yells at him in Japanese, assuming that whoever he is, he must be capable of speaking Japanese as well since he's in Japan!
