Oddestsey V: The Seven Lords

RP Topics will go in here. It's buried inside this forum to keep it from getting confused with the main RP room section.

VENGEANCE

Vengeance manipulates the machinery a bit and after a while feels fairly confident he can achieve the overcharge effect. He finds two posibilities within this - either he could set it up to trigger either automatically when Sikander intends to boost himself, or at Vengeance's own manual triggering.

"Hmmmm…

Let's go with manual. It would be nice to see the look on that smug git's face when his own ingenious contraption collapses into farts right in front of me.

Come on, friends! Time's a-wasting and I'm getting cabin fever in this bowls basement! Where do we go now?"

VENGEANCE

As Vengeance fixes the machine to be triggered at will, Vengeance considers his assets; an army of assorted amateur allies, as many of the Guild of Nefariousness as remain free and a secret attack in the form of overloading his own power to use against him. It would seem like it's probably time to formulate a plan of attack...

"You know, this sort of thing used to come so much quicker to me. I really must be getting old...

George, attend to the rabble upstairs and put those Level 1 loons on distraction duty. Tell them to seek out Sikander's new stronghold and to give the git as much grief as possible. I don't expect them to do anything effective, naturally, but it'll give Mother Brain a monster headache and maybe provide Gurdy a chance for escape, or at least a damn good laugh. More importantly, it'll keep them out of my hair for a while.

In the meantime, we need people who are both semi-competent and have actual knowledge of the peril at hand. Remember all those freaks and geeks we met back when we first got zapped here, George? I think it's time we renewed our acquaintance on slightly less...antagonistic terms. Slightly.

Come on, friends! Let's go save the world from total conquest - and then conquer it ourselves! To victory!"

BEAR IN MIND
Even as Bear in Mind hears the buzz of his communicator from amidst the crowd he is in, an altogether different sound of buzzing is overlayed, and even as he wonders what the bees want now, several armoured high tech assassins drop from the ceiling into the crowd with a thud. Coated in Bees, stinging them after crawling through the small gaps in their armour.

They seem rather dazed by the affair, but Bear in Mind notes a small data pad in one of their swolen hands that name him as an assassination target. Even as the would be murderers reach up for him, there is a slight click and a bolt is thrust directly in to the backs of their brains. Again.... no chance of snitches, but Bear in Mind feels pretty confident that this matches the MO of Sikander from what Tellu and Scarlett had described earlier.

The communicator message from Cyrus continues to ring....

VENGEANCE
The newly assembled would be Sikander fighters are directed off to besiege the Castle, and within a few minutes Vengeance can hear a series of Sky-ubers pulling up outside to transport many of them up towards their new target. Ahh the joys of mindless henchmen.

Meanwhile, Vengeance makes his own departure, following George in search of the others...

RICHFIELD, DURG, CYRUS, TELLU plus SASHA

While they do their shopping, a figure darkens the doorway, a familiar one that most haven't seen in a while, and Tellu most recently...

Suddenly in the background they hear the sound of various things clashing against an energy shield as in the distance some random mob of beings attack the castle, but far more preoccupyingly, Professor Vengeance walks through the door, George in tow...

"Good evening, ladies and gentlemen and variations thereon. The world is about to end. Who wants that to not happen?

George, boot up exposition protocol ZZ9. The one with the extra expressive holograms. We need to convey a lot of nonsense in very little time."

VENGEANCE, RICHFIELD, DURG, CYRUS, TELLU plus SASHA

George puts on Vengeance's hologram display reccounting the events of his story so far since arriving, though filtered through his own narrative a bit - his depiction of himself, while not precisely good, has an innate nobility that is more important than that, while there is a little hype to it, it's seems mainly in the staging of scenes.

Mostly it ends up looking like a Shakespearean tale of how the grand aspirations of himself were betrayed by the Iago like figure of Sikander is his guise as Darksein. It goes so far as to imply that all the worst bits were Sikander's fault, and generally downplays them, but the overall narrative is compelling and essentially broadly truthful. The production values are pretty swell too.
