OOC: Happy Australian New Year everyone! Also, Nato, regardless of your involvement, you've made some pretty good points regarding the newest developments, so I don't know if we should just disregard them like that. But, as Fishers has said, we will just descend further into a mess of nulled posts otherwise and allowing it is really just the best option right now. My recommendation, though, is to maybe fix up the radioactive material just lying there out in the open. As I said earlier, it being unguarded is arguably fine if the police officers are unaware of it- and I think they must be, since they really wouldn't have a use for it and would probably get rid of it otherwise- but I'd assume you'd want it in an Eski in a safe place or something.
Also, I'm super sorry to PyroLizard Prime for having to wait for my part of the Thumper/Scourge fight because of this. Thank you for your patience.
OOC: So let me get this straight. As of now I am in the tunnel way and you are not preforming that wrestling move? If that is the case then I'm sorry for possibly breaking the rules and let's just say Quake is gonna get a little easier to deal with.
Z, it might do for you to respond to this. I'm pretty sure that the answer to masterchirox's question is yes.
IC: Eloise Thumper and Mara Quiver - Police Station
Thumper grunted, still glaring at where the figure had disappeared. A murderer getting away was never a good thing, and not something to take pride in. Still, she'd done the best she could. She glanced sadly to the officers lying on the ground, those that could be helped already being tended to by a few of their comrades, before approaching Quiver again. The poor rookie was shivering, so she bent just enough to see eye to eye with her.
"You did what you could," Thumper said softly. "You're still learning, pequeño, and you're not to blame for what that villain did. But right now, they're on the roof, and we need to get right out there and see if we can catch them before they leave. I need those fancy sensors of yours."
Quiver hesitated, but nodded. She had failed too much this mission- she had a clear shot while the villain was gloating, but she couldn't make herself move to try and shoot. Thumper smiled and headed swiftly for the chief, Quiver right on her heels.
"We're sorry for what happened to your officers, but we might still be able to catch the villain outside," Thumper said quickly. "And there's the other, more shootey, villain- they disappeared and made a big hole in your pavement. They could still be outside somewhere, too."
GM NPC DRAX
"Don't remind me," grumbled Drax. He poked his head back into his office. "Call Mechron Emergency - we've got a bunch of bots down in here, and a couple for the morgue."
He then turned back to Thumper. "I think you should go track down the villains outside, and get her away from the mess in here. Me and my men will try to handle Underground Boy."
OOC: Not entirely sure if I appreciate every villain in the game suddenly being given carte blanche to try to kill Saracen, but I guess it's just one of the occupational hazards of playing as a hero character.
OOC: Aw, that's not nearly as fun.
OOC: First you complain about all the villains in the game trying to kill your character, then when I tell you that they aren't going to kill your character, you complain about that, too?
GMing a RPG is a hard job.
GM NPC HEALER BOT (NEAR NIMUS)
The bot stopped its sweeping pattern and cautiously approached the Hero. It looked to the civilians around him for permission.
GM NPC RECEPTIONIST
The receptionist approached the Hero. "We didn't send for any Heroes," she said. "Is there a problem?"
GM NPC HEALER BOT
The healer bot pointed to the Hero's damaged shoulder.
GM NPC RECEPTIONIST
GM NPC HEALER BOT
The bot went to work on Nimus' shoulder.
GM IC CAPTOR
The being behind the glass panel was some sort of humanoid, made of black metal with silver accents. Its eyes and core glowed red.
GM IC DR. LIE
The doctor opened the other secret passageway door (where Captor was), only to see...nothing. He grabbed the engine room door and thrust his head inside, then closed it with an annoyed glare of disgust. He tapped a small panel next to the door. "Fravi, we have a Code 45 down here."
He then turned to Crowley. "That's just our way of saying 'suspected intruder aboard ship.'"
GM NPC QUADAL
Quadal sent Unit some data. The Assembly Tower wasn't seeing a bunch of business with Mr. Makuro out. They would be able to get the legs sent over in about a half hour.
GM NPC STORMER
Stormer moved towards the building next to them, dodging the kick, and moved his shield to avoid Kaiba kicking him in the side with his upraised leg. His other sword arm stabbed toward the Proto-Hero's neck.
OOC: Aight I've got Thumper and Quiver waiting on a post, and Quark I'm not going to post for until Cor's had time to move Wolfe, so I guess that leaves Fakuro and Flood. Before I do, though: Two new characters! Yaaay! Render's the other veteran Hero on Quark's team, and Mona is mostly so Hero characters can analyse junk and maybe bother her instead of Zib sometimes. Poor guy's overworked. He deserves a raise.
Name: Ken Render
Powers and Abilities: Render specialises in demolition, bomb disposal, any task that involves physically taking things apart and/or putting them back together again. He’s also fairly experienced with his blaster. Hehas some minor experience with coding, which he is currently passing on to the rookie on his team.
Weapon(s): Render carries a blaster that looks like an old revolver. He also carries with him equipment for his specialisation- the tools required for taking apart electronics and machinery, and some rudimentary explosives for bigger targets such as walls. He will often refrain from using explosives in a fight due to the massive risk of killing or seriously injuring his opponent, and will only use them either in an extreme emergency or if there is absolutely no risk of fatal injuries.
Appearance: Render is fairly wiry, for getting into cramped places or other areas bulkier-armoured Heroes would not be able to fit in easily. He does have an alternate, bulkier set of plating ready in the Refitting Tower for bomb disposal missions, but more often than not he’s thinner-plated. If the bomb situation is extremely urgent, he’ll often forego refitting entirely.
His core and eyes are blue, and he is plated in brown and white shades. He’s often wearing a wistful expression, and occasionally chews wires the way one would chew a stalk of wheat. I don't have a terrible MSPaint rendition of him just yet because the tool I have on hand to draw with is a trackpad, but if it's any help, his design process began with "Well, if Quark's Buzz Lightyear, does that make him Sheriff Woody?".
Bio: Way back when, as a rookie, Render was put under the tutelage of Dorothy Quark, who was by then well-established as a skilled Hero, if a little stern. They and a third Hero formed an excellent team, often working space missions and excelling brilliantly, and stayed as a team for many years, occasionally taking rookies and passing them to other teams as they grew better at their Hero duties and found a niche they could fit into.
Finally, after an incident which ended in the demise of two rookies and the third member of their team, both remaining Heroes were hit hard. Render, though he embraces that what happened was not anyone’s fault, still cannot help but blame himself. There is some self-imposed tension between he and Quark because of this, as he feels she must blame him for the incident.
Render is otherwise a laid-back, friendly Hero, and will always lend a hand to someone in need. He has a weakness for Wild West movies, and will occasionally help out in the ship repair bay in his free time, fixing up ships, or working on consoles around the place.
Name: "Morbid” Mona Selphi
Job/Location: Selphi works in the forensics lab at Hero Factory. There is limited knowledge on where, exactly, she lives. Some theorise that she must live somewhere in the Hero Factory itself, if not on the lab floor, then in some forgotten janitor’s closet or storage room. Her co-workers are pretty sure she lives in Makuhero City.
Bio: Sometimes, there will be a crime that requires analysis of recovered evidence in Makuhero City. Sometimes, on a planet with suspicions of a corrupt government or police, sending evidence to such a place for analysis would run a high risk of tampering or worse. Sometimes, Heroes may be investigating on a planet with no police equivalent in sight. Or, sometimes, other planets may need a place to send data for analysis because their own forensics department is nonexistent or too small or not advanced enough to handle such a request.
This is where Mona Selphi and the Hero Factory Forensics Department come in. Selphi herself is a jack of all trades in terms of forensic techniques, and is one of the few who cared to study both mechanical and organic forensics. Despite popular belief, forensics is not all about murders- Selphi can also handle fingerprint analysis, chemical analysis, paint chip matching, alloy matching, pretty much any data a crime scene can throw her way. She’s always very happy to answer calls from Heroes to analyse anything they’ve found!
Selphi is a very cheery, bright individual, and takes a lot of joy in her work. Most people agree that she is too into forensic entomology for the interest to be anything below unsettling. She’s very keen to help, but will absolutely drop everything she is currently tasked with if asked to analyse native insects or identify a beetle found in a suspicious place. Nevertheless, she’s a sharp mind and a helpful soul. She’s just... a little too keen, sometimes.
She is plated in white and light blues, and wears a labcoat to prevent chemical staining. She will often wear badges on this coat, usually of various insects though she has been spotted sporting the Hero Factory logo, a smiley face, and other such normalities alongside anatomically accurate Meroxian ants and Yurokian death beetles.
OOC: So yeah my end goal is obviously to fill the HF RPG with nerds and Toy Story references.
Both characters approved.
Evil plan to turn HF RPG into a nerd version of Toy Story: not approved. Although, if we think about it TOO hard, HF is nerd Toy Story IN SPAAAACE!!!
