Session 1: Bus Stop

Post by Shadow8472 on Wed May 18, 2016 10:19 pm

Session Recap:

One day, everyone was minding their own business, when a small number of people heard a telepathic child's plea for help.
Pearl noticed a bus being loaded with several kids. When she called them out on it, they panicked and started to move.
John Smith teleported into a messy storage closet and made his way outside, after several questioning looks from teachers.
Ceffer Hawk abandoned his groceries while in line to check out at the grocery store and started attacking the bus cowboy style.
Our unnamed illusionist threw together a sloppy image of himself as he usually does when he wants to go AWOL.
Anthony Wells V was helping his father with an experiment on the digitization machine. He got superpowers and ran off.

Together they stopped the bus. The bus was equipped with several traps, one of which set fire to the bus after it crashed.
Everyone got the kids out while Ceffer learned of their intentions about taking the kids to the airport. The police showed up
about the time some of <ILLUSIONIST NAME>'s firebending students found him and put out the fires in the bus's engine and belly.

Ceffer and John teleported to the airport where six small planes had just taken off. They captured one of the planes, but the pilot got away.

Everyone received an invitation to meet at the lab where we begin our first forum session. (If this scene isn't fully developed by next session,
we can just go over it then.)

+10 pts for everybody

A few days after stopping the bus, our adventurers are invited to the science lab. As they arrive, they are escorted into a small, air-conditioned conference room with seating for 10-20 people. The room is well furnished, and a water cooler sits in the corner should anyone feel the need for a drink.

Ceffer Hawk walks slowly in with a lollipop in his mouth. He Carefully surveys the room for signs of an ambush. In his coat pocket are enough various high calorie treats to put most people into a diabetic coma. He is dressed in something that appears to be standard motorcycle gear much like he was yesterday. After a moment of surveying the room he burst out laughing, and gets a amused smirk on his face.

"Hey! What are you laughing about?"

Anthony walks in, pulls out two chairs, and takes a seat. He is wearing a casual suit. He looks quite tired as if he is just recovering from a bout of insomnia. Nonetheless, he has a tired grin on his face.

Pearl comes in and sits by Anthony. She is wearing lightweight casual, the sort of outfit you'd throw a coat over and go walking in. She doesn't look anyone in the eye as she sits down and grumbles, "I don't know what was so important..."

"Timing and answered prayers."
Ceffer cryptically replies while eating more candy and a granola bar. Without leaving any crumbs or wrappers anywhere. He tips a bottle of Orange Juice high pulp,  "Sorry I have a high metabolic rate and I have no idea how long this meeting is going to take."

Mr. Smith just sits quietly in the corner. Observing every thing but not saying anything.

In response to the cowboy's snacking, Anthony pulls out a small package of pistachios and starts eating them while he isn't talking.

"About the other day," *snap* "I just wanted to say I'm sorry about ramming you. I had no idea what was going on and I just flew with it." *crunch*

"I know. That is why you must assess situations before you rushing in."
Ceffer looks around the room finishing his orange juice.
"Hmm.... Why do I get the feeling that I have been called into the principles office?"

"Maybe because this is the room where Dr. Wells conducts all his private conferences?"

Rook is dressed in a red tee shirt with the black pants from his gi. He seems to have neglected footwear.
I pad silently to the water cooler to pour himself a glass. The chatter in the room is tuned out as I walk back to the door.
This better not take too long, I have a class to teach.
I grumble and lean on the wall, next to the door stop, and sip on my water.

Dr. Wells himself strides in and takes the podium.
“On behalf of the parents and staff of Little Blossoms Daycare, I’d like to start by thanking you all for stepping up to help in this unfortunate event.”
He gestures to the door and a teacher from the daycare come in. Four of the rescued kids come in and hold up a paper banner with a bunch of small handprints. It has a neatly painted “Thank you” written in the middle. A kid blurts out, “Our class maked this for you.”

Pearl's expression seems to thaw a little when the children appear.

Rook is entirely different in front of the kids. Suddenly energetic and smiling.
You guys made this? No way! This is so cool! Hey can someone take our picture with the kids and the banner. Hey kids, pay attention...
I raise my empty hand towards the teacher, and a cellphone out of nowhere.

The teacher takes the phone and the kids gather into picture formation. Any "heroes" who want to join in are welcome, otherwise your identities are yours to keep secret.

I start to get up to join the picture, but Dr. Wells expresses his disapproval with a quick shake of his head. I sit back down.

The kids take their picture with whichever heroes join in, and the teacher gives the cellphone back before taking the kids out single file with their walking-in-line rope. The girl taking rear turns around to say something on their way out.

"Ya gunna get Bobby and Mikey back all safe too, aren' yu?"

She turns on the big, pleading eyes and doubles her cuteness. She starts crying a little before the embarrassed teacher hurries them on out before anyone can respond.

"As you might have figured out just now, your victory earlier this week was not perfect."

Dr. Wells gestures at a computer and the wall behind him brings up a slide with two families’ portraits are side by side. The first family has two boys and a little girl, the younger boy is highlight. The second has a teenage daughter and a little boy, who is highlight.

"The kidnappers got away with two kids who were not on the bus. Some of the children heard little Michal, pictured on the right, screaming for help in their heads before getting on the bus, so we assume they were taken off campus before any of you got there.”

Once I'm sure the kids are out of sight, I turn around, my face grim. My frown deepens as I recognize one of the pictures.
Now that explains why she hasn't been to class. Where do I sign up? I've a three students good enough to work the others on basics for a couple classes. Otherwise I can close the dojo if this is gonna take more than a week.

Pearl rubs her temples for a moment. So that's why I got that slight headache. "That could have just as easily been my sister that they took, so if I have to I'll quit my job to help stop these punks and get those kids back. Did you issue an amber alert for them?"

Anthony stands up and puts his hands down on the table in anger at the kidnappers.

I'm in. I don't care if I have to go through a few more sleepless nights, but I'm in.

I'm in I'm new to town but I will help when I can. Don't like people who attack kids. Mr. Smiths Said quietly.
Besides I need something to do while I wait for classes to start.

“Good to know you are on board. One more thing of note, neither boy had documented superpowers at the time of the kidnapping,”

*next slide: Michal is the only one still highlit.*

"though this one has apparently developed telepathy."

*Next slide, with pictures of the bus and the plane*

“The bus wreck and the plane Mr. Smith captured were modified for this operation. The bus had a number of traps, a couple of which actually backfired, and the plane was equipped with stealth technology, explaining why we couldn’t pick up the other five like it once they were over the horizon.”

Wait, didn't they leave on normal looking planes? I thought stealth tech relied on angles and faces to reduce the reflective surfaces to distort the radar readout. Or is there something you're hoping to get your hands on?
