    Magnitude
    Kasimir Flaegler
    HP 1



    After having picked up Lexus and Buddy, he hoped on the way back to the academy, Kas began to mentally compose his report to Herr Newton. He had to admit, he was worried that the events of the evening could be spun into an international diplomatic disaster in which he played the role of villain. It wouldn't be difficult to do, especially considering Lexus and Armande were both former members of Laputa. He was forced to trust that Nam-seum could keep the situation from hemorraging out of control, but honestly, Dong-suk was her older brother and probably outranked her and Ji-won most certainly did.

    Before his thoughts could spiral too much further into that maelstrom of second guessing his decisions and trying to figure out everything that could go wrong, they arrived at the school and hustled their captive into the Wreck Room. They'd barely gotten a containment unit constructed when the young man awakened and start yelling about them being the Japanese and his grandfather considering this an act of war. In the control room Kas sighed, he had a feeling he knew what the truth of the situation would turn out to be. Still, he keyed up the microphone and spoke calmly in French.

    <<"Please calm down. You are in Vienna and you are safe. Your situation is complicated, but nobody means you any harm.">>

    Keying off the mic, Kas turned to Juozas. "Mein freund, could you go alert Herr Newton und Frau Fischer uf our new guest."

    "Oh...und if they ask about the embassy, tell them I will explain as best I kan when there is time."


    Kas sighed and drummed his fingers on his helm as it sat on the control console. It took no time at all for today's mission to go sideways. He wondered if he wouldn't have been better off with the Drifter.

      Greystone:
      [Jack Rexroth]
      HP: 2

      "Who says men settle it best?"

      The ice spear grazed Incubus' rubbery flesh. "Me," he said. He swung his hand as though to punch Maze in the stomach but opened his hand. His clawed fingers stabbed into her gut.

      Maze's soul-weapon vanished. Her arms went limp. The fire in her eyes was extinguished. Incubus chuckled as he drew his hand back, letting her body sag to the ground. "Like I said..." He started to lick her blood off of his fingers. "You had your chance, kid."
      Jack growled, showing his fanged teeth as he willed an internal change to happen. He was tired of this old man. Tired of his talking. Tired of his threats. But most of all he was tired of watching his friends getting hurt by him and his friends while they smiled and laughed about it and at this point he was tired of talking with words, instead content to let his actions speak for him. So when he opened his mouth, the teenager was sure that his opponent was expecting some kind of threatening response. Instead what came out was a thick, ropey substance that sprayed out wide and long and sought to wrap around the man's leathery limbs and tie him up.


      OOC:

      Then using Spider's Silk to attack Incubus.

        Greystone vomited gossimer strands of silk at the villain, only to watch as the man sidestepped the spray.

          The Blue Knight

          Moving in a flurry, Gwyn spared speech as he slashed at the clawed-man, seeking to put him down as fast as possible, before he injured any more of them.

          First, using a Hero Point to remove Fatigue from Extra Effort last round.
          Then, Regular Will Strike 1d20+5=19 DC 26 Will.
          Extra Effort to do it again 1d20+5=6 Well, here's hoping that attack wasn't necessary in the first place.

              HP: 3->5

              Violet's initial anger faded a little and she took a moment to try to think clearly. Touching Incubus was obviously bad so she tried to coat him in ice to slow him down.

              Ice snare attack: 1D20 + 9 = [8]+9 = 17 Should hit while he's stunned. Reflex DC16 vs snare

                HP 1



                Austrian empire? House Bonaparte? Another dimension tossed visitor. This was beginning to become a disturbingly common phenomenon. Kas's head sagged forward for a moment. This was going to be a difficult conversation. Keying the mic again, Kas spoke;

                <<"Herr Bonaparte, you haf not been kidnapped. You inadvertently attacked the North Korean embassy in Vienna. This may be diffikult for you to grasp, but you haf somehow krossed dimensional boundaries.">>

                <<"I am koming in to speak with you face to face. There is a possibility you will rekognize me...a version uf me. If this is so, perhaps it will open the door to a meaningful dialogue, bekause believe me...your presence here is as diskoncerting to me, as it is for you.">>


                Turning to Buddy, Lexus and Armande, Kas motioned to the control panel. "Let me in to young Napoleon's room, then lock us in. It would be unwise to allow him to eskape just yet, since he knows just enough about this city to kause no end uf hazard to himself and others."

                Out of habit , he snatched up his helm and went to the secure holding cell and waited for Buddy to let him in. Before he walked in, he activated his force field, since there was a fair chance the aggressive young vagabond would attack once he had the chance. Quickly entering, he introduced himself.

                <<"Hello your Lordship, my name is Kasimir Flaegler, und we need to talk.">>

                  <<"This may be diffikult for you to grasp, but you haf somehow krossed dimensional boundaries.">>

                  To say that the prince looked skeptical would have been and understatement.

                  Sure enough, as soon as he entered the room, the prince exploded towards him, only to bounce off the invisible barrier.

                  <<"Hello your Lordship, my name is Kasimir Flaegler, und we need to talk.">>

                  "J'en ai plus rien à foutre," Napoleon swore. "T'es rien qu'un petit connard..." From the floor, Napoleon gazed up at Magnitude. There was no hint of recognition in his expression. <<"You were there with the Japs, but your name sounds German. The Kurfürst fell in behind Japan, eh? When my grandfather hears of this, he'll burn your whole country to ashes!">>

                      Kas sighed at the young man's belligerence. How come the wealthy and high born couldn't start any sort of discussion without lobbing threats around?

                      <<"Non. The Kurfurst actually threw in with the European Union, as did the Assemblee nationale, though we do business with the Japanese. Here, Napolean Bonaparte was defeated at Waterloo by the Lord Wellington. He died a prisoner of the British on the isle of Elba. The position of France as the most powerful nation on earth collapsed after that. The most powerful nation on earth currently is...dependent upon who you ask...either China or the United States of America. Though I suppose an argument could be made for the Soviet Union*">>

                      Tapping his chest, he continued. <<"This uniform I wear? It is the uniform of the Vindicators, an international organization of super-human beings who act as peacekeepers under the auspices of the United Nations. The United Nations is a diplomatic body consisting of over 180 nations who attempt to negotiate their affairs without descending into war. I'm afraid, unless your grandfather has the ability to traverse dimensions, he won't be burning anything to ashes.">>

                      <<"Now, I would like nothing more than to allow you to learn more about our home, since locating yours could be an arduous task, but I cannot permit you to strut about like a barnyard rooster, threatening everyone you meet. So, my question for you is...will you refrain from rash action in order to discover more about the realm you've landed in or must we keep you contained?">>


                      Honestly? Kas was waiting for the French teen's head to explode. If he himself had not had the jarring experience of being dimension tossed, the entire idea would seem crazy. It was almost frightening how casual he was getting in the face of lunacy.

                        Imago's blow caused Incubus' body to sag. The ice encasing his legs caused him to stay standing. Now the man simply stood bent over.

                        That'll knock him out.

                        EDIT: I actually missed that he was staggered last post, and should have made a check for that: Incubus - Recovery Check - DC 10: 1D20+2 = [2]+2 = 4

                          Imago's blow caused Incubus' body to sag. The ice encasing his legs caused him to stay standing. Now the man simply stood bent over.
                          Jack had little doubt that their opponent's current condition wouldn't last for too long given how their opponent had been stealing vitality from the others to keep himself going after all the hits they'd scored on him. They needed to be sure he was done.

                          Permanently.

                          It was that last thought in the scaly teen's mind as he moved in closer to the older man then took a hold of him by the head, and with both hands Jack violently twisted his head 180 degrees.

                            CAMP DAVID (Blue Knight, Greystone, Imago, Shiver, Ursa; NPCs: Bile, Drifter, Felsic, Incubus, Maze, Pyre, Verve, Vestige)
                            The loud crack that accompanied Incubus' death seemed to drown even the sound of the wall of fire moving through the forest. It caused Felsic to look up from Maze in time to see Incubus' fall. "Mitä helvettiä!?!" she exclaimed. "What are... You're... You..."

                            Felsic scrambled to her feet and stood in the path between Greystone and the other villains. She had no words. She just started frantically shaking her head.

                              Otso looked up from Ellen's unconscious body just in time to see his classmate cross a line. "Whoa Jack, what the hell!?" He leapt to his feet, wincing as he moved faster than he maybe ought to, given his burns.

                              None the less, he moved briskly to the American teen's side. "Since when did we become judge, jury and executioner? Scratch that, since when did we become coldblooded murderers?" Otso turned his gaze around the group, searching for support from among his peers.

                              Maze shouldn't be 'Dying' anymore since Otso managed to stabilize her on his last turn.

                                A throat clearing sound occurred. Imago brushed himself off and stepped forward. "Look, I'm not someone who thinks of killing as a regular resort..." But there was a grim look on his face. "Jack, was it? Keep doing what you were doing, to all three of them. Because this isn't a little cut and dried, black and white, judge and jury thing, or cold blood. Did Liz even tell you the basics of what's going on here?"
