Nature's Fury

(6:20:32 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe is in the main common room! Being lazy and napping.
(6:20:34 PM) Tom90deg: As per ususal
(6:21:31 PM) Absrev left the room (quit: Ping timeout).
(6:21:33 PM) Absrev_ is now known as Absrev
(6:22:01 PM) Tox: Mike is there as well, a lot more relaxed now that Addison is safe.
(6:25:08 PM) Absrev: Elliot's been absent beyond anyone's excuses given by staff. No notice has been given for weeks since his disappearance after the Die Glocke incident.
(6:28:24 PM) Tox: Mike is aware of this…it does not sit well with him, especially given the…circumstances of his last known whereabouts.
(6:29:12 PM) Feierbird: Satyana is playing an esraj in the common area. She's playing classical music.
(6:32:31 PM) Tox: It's soothing. Mike sighs, relaxing into the couch.
(6:35:19 PM) Feierbird: Not really. If it were soothing, Satyana would be asleep, remember. It's energetic.
(6:36:56 PM) Alivi [~moc.rr.ser.anilorac.09D2C63B-CRInys|ivilA#moc.rr.ser.anilorac.09D2C63B-CRInys|ivilA] entered the room.
(6:37:54 PM) Tox: Still.
(6:40:52 PM) dawny [~ten.ralugnicym.B0488FD9-CRInys|snwad#ten.ralugnicym.B0488FD9-CRInys|snwad] entered the room.
(6:46:21 PM) Alivi: Raine sits down in the lounge with his notebook, he opens it and begins writing.
(6:46:47 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe snores. Such a lady.
(6:47:11 PM) Alivi: Raine manages to block out that noise but is glad someone on Team 2 seems to be getting some form of rest.
(6:48:19 PM) Tox: Mike has his hands laced behind his head, and is staring at nothing, yawning a little.
(6:52:18 PM) Quidmore [~ten.nozirev.soif.cdhsaw.EDB96CC1-CRInys|XtoBcriP#ten.nozirev.soif.cdhsaw.EDB96CC1-CRInys|XtoBcriP] entered the room.
(6:52:42 PM) Absrev: Outside HQ, a small motorcade pulls up at the door. Among them, the familiar Rolls Phantom heads the line of cars, which includes a rather odd looking van done up in glossy white, shaped similarly to an ambulance. The sun seemed to be shining on the lot of them, but as the doors to the van opened, it seemed to get…cloudy.
(6:53:37 PM) Tox|Laptop [~ten.nozirev.soif.cdhsaw.EDB96CC1-CRInys|amitlU#ten.nozirev.soif.cdhsaw.EDB96CC1-CRInys|amitlU] entered the room.
(6:54:38 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe Snerks, and shifts to a more ladylike position
(6:55:02 PM) Feierbird is now known as Feierchores
(6:55:48 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike pulls out a worn, leatherbound book and flips it open, starting to read, eyes growing somewhat distant and unfocused.
(6:56:00 PM) Gwen: Addison wanders into the lounge, iPad tucked under her arm, her glasses perched in her hair.
(6:56:50 PM) Alivi: Raine pauses in his writing activity as Addison walks in he looks over and gives her a small wave. He will admit he is happy to see her walking about well again.
(6:57:28 PM) Lurker: Raj slips into the lounge as well, practically unnoticed until he sips at a thermos full of coffee.
(6:58:50 PM) Tox|Laptop: He looks over, shaking his head. "Hey, Addison, Raine, Raj."
(6:59:25 PM) Alivi: Raine looks over at Mike and gives him a small nod, he goes back to writing. Still not at all comfortable with the fact that he is still there.
(6:59:29 PM) Gwen: Addison waves back at Raine, sitting down half between him and Zoe, before opening her iPad, staring at the screen intently.
(6:59:35 PM) Lurker: The darker skinned man lifts his thermos and gives a nod. "Officer Weyland."
(7:00:36 PM) Feierchores is now known as Feierbird
(7:01:10 PM) Feierbird: Satyana hasn't noticed Raj, even after he talked. She seems intent on playing the esraj.
(7:01:31 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike grins. "Officer Weyland. Kinda formal…just call me Mike."
(7:01:59 PM) Lurker: "If you insist."
(7:02:52 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe snekrs awake. "Hello?"
(7:03:04 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Whatever makes you comfortable," Mike says, waving his hand. "— Oh. I want to speak to you about the mission the other week, if you've got a moment.
(7:03:05 PM) Tox|Laptop: "
(7:03:37 PM) Absrev_ [~ten.ralugnicym.438BDD6E-CRInys|versba#ten.ralugnicym.438BDD6E-CRInys|versba] entered the room.
(7:03:46 PM) Feierbird: Satyana ceases playing, now aware that a relevant conversation may occur.
(7:04:19 PM) Absrev left the room (quit: Ping timeout).
(7:04:19 PM) Absrev_ is now known as Absrev
(7:04:20 PM) Absrev left the room (quit: Client exited).
(7:04:34 PM) Absrev [~ten.ralugnicym.438BDD6E-CRInys|versba#ten.ralugnicym.438BDD6E-CRInys|versba] entered the room.
(7:05:51 PM) Lurker: "Of course," Raj says, nodding as he sips his coffee again.
(7:06:40 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike glances at the rest of the room. "Step into the hall with me?" he invites, standing and tucking the journal away before heading to the door.
(7:07:24 PM) Alivi: Raine looks up and watches Mike.
(7:07:32 PM) Absrev: Stepping out of the back of the van, a slim figure dressed in black and seemingly masked was accompanied by a pair of individuals in a white suit. Approaching the doors of the building, they seemed to ask him a few questions, and from the windows they could see he was wearing a mask of some kind.
(7:08:11 PM) Feierbird: Satyana hms. "It occurs to me that I just now learned his name."
(7:08:12 PM) Lurker: Raj follows, sipping at his drink again.
(7:09:33 PM) Tox|Laptop: Once they're out of the lounge, Mike turns and sighs, running a hand through his hair. "I appreciate that emotions were…running high in Monaco. I don't intend to chew you out for something I'm equally guilty of, but…casual violence of the sort that the two of us displayed in Monaco are not how we do things."
(7:10:27 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Going forward, I'd appreciate it if you'd try to tone it back. One of our other agents said that you had threatened the civilans somehow? The unaffiliated ones?"
(7:11:02 PM) Absrev: A security detail from the building approached cautiously, but paperwork presented by one of the white suited individuals seemed to answer their own questions. Slowly, they'd act to remove the mask, along with the invisible restraints that had held the figure's hands together.
(7:11:28 PM) Lurker: "Casual violence?" Raj asked, frowning. "I'm afraid I don't see what was very casual about my takedown of the Dealer - aside from the fact that I've done it many times."
(7:12:22 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Well…that's a different matter, made worse by timing." Mike scratches his head. "The agent said that you were threatening the civilians when the dealer attempted to turn them on us."
(7:13:43 PM) Lurker: "I told them that I meant no harm to them, but should they attack, I would not hesitate to incapacitate them. I only ever severely injure targets, or those who attack me - or those who are simply unable to be incapacitated, and are too much of a risk." He states all of this very calmly and simply, but there is a bit of bite to his voice. "Had they attacked, I would have knocked them out
(7:13:48 PM) Lurker: and left them to recover."
(7:14:56 PM) Gwen: Addison looks over to Raine. "Dr. Saari seemed to take a liking to you on the ride back to the Bureau," she smiles a little. "To be honest, she scares me."
(7:15:09 PM) Absrev: As the restraints were removed, it was clear that something was being worn under the loose black shirt and slacks, something tight and extremely high tech that seemed to cover him from neck to feet. Behind the mask was a young, slightly emaciated face, black hair and eyes that seemed to shine in a prism of colors as you looked at them. There was an instant recognition for the security guards…this was the one who'd gone crazy. The one
(7:15:09 PM) Absrev: responsible for those funerals around new years time. Elliot Hawthorne had been returned to the Bureau.
(7:15:22 PM) Alivi: Raine looks over at Addison, "Why does she scare you?" He seems rather confused at the notion.
(7:15:41 PM) Gwen: "Because she's generally imposing and gruff."
(7:15:54 PM) Alivi: "Seems normal to me…"
(7:16:09 PM) Feierbird: "I hadn't noticed."
(7:16:28 PM) Absrev: Mike would receive a message on his comm device. «Lobby security requesting backup for potentiona
(7:16:46 PM) Absrev: «potential containment.»
(7:18:01 PM) Gwen: "Clearly she was having a good day then."
(7:18:05 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike nods. "Understood. I was merely intending to be clear. I…acted rashly." He nods again. "I just wanted to make sure we were — " Mike checks his PDA. "…Hell. Raj, c'mon, looks like trouble's brewing." Mike heads off to the lobby. ~/Potential/ containment…?~ he thinks to himself. ~Hell does that mean?~
(7:18:24 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Team 2, hit the lobby, something's going down and they want backup.»
(7:18:46 PM) Tom90deg: "Right then."
(7:19:02 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe hops up and heads downstairs
(7:19:03 PM) Feierbird: «Understood.>Satyana stands up and heads down towards the lobby. "…wait, I need to clean something up." She turns around and heads for her room, muttering something about experiments.
(7:19:05 PM) Feierbird is now known as Scandinner
(7:19:22 PM) Lurker: Raj nods, tucking his coffee into his sash and following behind Mike.
(7:20:35 PM) Gwen: Addison sighs and stands, closing the cover on her iPad, before heading out of the lounge behind Satyana.
(7:21:10 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Never a dull moment…" he mutters.
(7:21:20 PM) Absrev: Elliot just stood there, processing things, flexing hands that had been bound for weeks. His request, of course. His eyes blinked, having been hidden behind the mask that kept his vision from disorienting him during those kaleidoscopic periods of delirium.
(7:22:07 PM) Alivi: Raine stands and follows behind Addison and Satayana.
(7:22:12 PM) Absrev: The suit under his clothing seemed to pulse lightly as security approached him, giving off a faint purple glow along arcane lines and patterns etched into the mysterious material.
(7:23:21 PM) Tox|Laptop: When Mike hits the lobby, the first thing he does is go for his gun — which he quickly relinquishes as he sees who exactly is there, crossing the floor. "Elliot!" How supernatural is whatever he's got on?
(7:24:12 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe sees him as well and pauses. "Hm."
(7:24:22 PM) Absrev: Oddly enough, he seems to not light up. Instead, he seemed to be a void in the ambient supernatural energy that filled the HQ
(7:25:04 PM) Absrev: Whatever he was wearing seemed to be absorbing a great deal of supernatural energy and…dispersing it completely.
(7:25:15 PM) Scandinner is now known as Scantron
(7:25:18 PM) Alivi: Raine recognizes who it is and frowns. «Mike what is going on?»
(7:25:37 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike pauses, the vacuum causing him to slow to a stop in front of him. "The hell…?"
(7:25:41 PM) Absrev: Looking up at Mike, he blinked, eyes shifting to green. "…I'm back."
(7:25:47 PM) Gwen: Addison rounds the corner and stops dead, her eyes wide. Gabriel walks over the Rolls Royce and opens the door, the dark-skinned Metatron stepping out of the car.
(7:26:01 PM) Tom90deg: "You sure are."
(7:26:04 PM) Scantron is now known as Scanchores
(7:26:04 PM) Tox|Laptop: "So I can see. You've…got some explaining to do, I'm afraid."
(7:26:14 PM) Lurker: Raj folds his hands behind his back - anyone behind him can see that his right hand has gripped the handle of his machete - just in case.
(7:26:27 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike cocks his head at the Metatron. "And I think maybe he has some answers?"
(7:26:47 PM) Tox|Laptop: He folds his arms as the Metratron doubtlessly approaches.
(7:26:57 PM) Absrev: "Explaining…right. He can do that." He glanced to metatron dispassionately.
(7:27:54 PM) Gwen: The Metatron stands beside Elliot, looking to Mike with his ever-passionate glare. "Agent Weyland, it occurs to me that you might have some questions." Addison still hasn't moved.
(7:27:57 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Mmm." «I have no idea, Raine…just let's play it cool. Tall, dark and ugly is the Metatron, God's mouthpiece….so I'm told.»
(7:27:57 PM) Absrev: Eyes turned to Addison as she entered the room as well. His expression was hard to read, but his mind was even harder to figure out at the moment.
(7:28:42 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike returns the Metatron's glare. "As well it should. What exactly the hell happened on that hill?"
(7:28:57 PM) Alivi: «God's….Like the God?>
(7:29:17 PM) Tox|Laptop: «The God,>Mike confirms.
(7:29:29 PM) Alivi: Raine seems rather shocked.
(7:29:29 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Judeo-Christian God,>he clarifies.
(7:29:48 PM) Lurker: Raj doesn't seem phased by this at /all/.
(7:30:13 PM) Alivi: «Wait there is more than one God? That cannot be true.»
(7:30:33 PM) Gwen: "Elliot was…taken upstairs for some of our own containment. I know it violates what we arranged with the Director, but things changed."
(7:30:34 PM) Tox|Laptop: «I have a theory about that…but now's not the time.»
(7:30:40 PM) Tom90deg: «We'll talk about that later.»
(7:31:08 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Containment. You mean the demons that his guns held?"
(7:31:36 PM) Gwen: "Something like that," he smiles. "My superior thought that her help would be…appreciated and needed."
(7:32:10 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Believe me, it was appreciated." Mike nods. "So…what warrants such a personal visit?"
(7:34:20 PM) Gwen: "We decided to visit to make sure he got home safely…as well, to brief you on the suit." He gestures to Elliot.
(7:34:42 PM) Absrev: As they discussed the terms of his disappearance, he looked across the faces of those assembled. The last he'd seen of any of them, he had just killed two of their coworkers, and tried to kill the rest of them. It was less hostile than he expected.
(7:34:52 PM) Tox|Laptop: "I was gonna ask. It's….a supernatural hole. I can't sense anything from it."
(7:35:38 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike knows about losing control of one's body and mind. He's not about to blame someone for sins he could commit himself without proper precaution.
(7:35:42 PM) Gwen: "Good, then it's working. It's a containment field…same stuff used in the Ark of the Covenant actually."
(7:36:18 PM) Tox|Laptop: "What does it do, precisely?"
(7:37:48 PM) Gwen: "It contains some new found residual energy inside him…and protects him from the sunlight. It also can act as a emotional controller on it's higher settings." The Metatron looks to the rest of the team, his eyes floating over each of them. Addison still hasn't moved.
(7:38:23 PM) Alivi: Raine looks over to Addison, concerned.
(7:38:41 PM) Absrev: Neither has Elliot, before he began to walk towards Addison.
(7:38:46 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike nods, slowly. "Will it affect the supernatural energies of others if they're in close proximity? Mine, for example?"
(7:39:22 PM) Gwen: "If not contained your sense will be hampered, Agent Weyland." Addison tenses up a little as she seems him advance.
(7:39:30 PM) Tom90deg: "Hm…"
(7:39:36 PM) Tom90deg: "Will I be able to teleport him?"
(7:39:40 PM) Tom90deg: "If necessary?"
(7:40:35 PM) Tox|Laptop: "What do you mean? My question is — if I have to be next to him on a mission, or in a car, will it do anything, or would I have to be wearing the thing?"
(7:41:00 PM) Absrev: Stopping about 5 feet from Addison, Elliot seemed to consider his actions as he looked her in the eyes, his own seeming to shift between a variety of colors as his suit hummed gently. Then, he knelt down onto one knee, looking at the floor.
(7:41:11 PM) Absrev: "I'm…sorry. I missed the wedding."
(7:41:40 PM) Gwen: "Yes, the suit is an internal containment system, rather than an external null zone for supernatural energy. And no Agent Weyland, nothing will change." Addison looks down at Elliot and blinks once…then another time, silent.
(7:42:39 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike nods. "Alright." He tilts his head. "So…what happened? In Die Glocke, I mean?"
(7:42:51 PM) Gwen: "That is classified for the moment."
(7:42:52 PM) Absrev: He's unmoving in that position, seeming to be awaiting some kind of judgement.
(7:44:11 PM) Scanchores is now known as Scantron
(7:44:19 PM) Gwen: Addison takes a step forward and leans down, placing a hand on his shoulder. "Stand up Elliot…"
(7:45:15 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike shifts position slightly. "It seems to be pertinent to Elliot's state, and therefore to the safety and security of my team."
(7:45:40 PM) Absrev: Looking up towards her, his expression seemed…empty, like it lacked some vital emotional essence that simply wasn't there. Standing up, he stood straight up, his posture rigid and proper. "…thank you."
(7:45:53 PM) Scantron: Satyana finally arrives, one hand tucked firmly in a pocket. "Sorry I'm late… would anyone mind bringing me up to date?
(7:48:32 PM) Gwen: Addison reaches forward and places a hand on his chest. "You're not in there…are you?"
(7:49:08 PM) Tox|Laptop: "In there? What?" Mike turns around, taking a couple steps in their direction.
(7:50:24 PM) Absrev: He looked at her, and for a moment there seemed to be a flash of purple in his eyes, a slight shift of recognition. He seemed to furrow his brow, head aching. "…I don't know."
(7:50:55 PM) Gwen: The loudspeakers crackle to life. "Team 2, please report to the briefing room. Team 2, to the briefing room." Addison sighs at the sound of the loudspeakers, still watching Elliot closely.
(7:51:07 PM) Absrev: "But whoever I am…I'm here now. I wont be gone again until I die."
(7:51:49 PM) Scantron: "I'll get caught up later." Satyana turns around and heads towards the briefing room.
(7:53:30 PM) Alivi: Raine makes his way to the Briefing room going off his memory from last time.
(7:54:05 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike nods to the Metatron. "We'll talk more later," he tosses off as he jogs to the briefing room.
(7:54:15 PM) Absrev: His last phrase seemed to hang in the air as he looked to Mike. He didn't know if there was a place on team 2 anymore, but he seemed ready to go at a moment's notice.
(7:54:46 PM) Gwen: Addison takes Elliot's hand and walks with him to the briefing room, completely silent.
(7:55:15 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike stops, looking at Elliot with a gaze that seems to be reserving judgment. "What're ya waiting for, man? Invitation? Let's go." Mike resumes moving.
(7:55:27 PM) Lurker: Raj follows the group to the briefing room!
(7:55:28 PM) Tox|Laptop: His words held no rancor, though.
(7:55:31 PM) dawny: When they enter they may notice a tall, strong Haitian man standing by the door. His posture is perfect, arms crossed, eyes locked ahead.
(7:55:49 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe sighs, and heads on up to the brifing room
(7:55:55 PM) Tom90deg: "Hello again."
(7:56:10 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike does notice this, eyeing him as he takes his seat.
(7:56:18 PM) Absrev: Elliot heads off with Addison as they arrive at the briefing room, still very quiet.
(7:56:35 PM) Scantron: Satyana notices the man and nods to him before entering and sitting down.
(7:57:12 PM) Lurker: Raj stays standing - he's more comfortable standing than sitting.
(7:57:16 PM) dawny: The man makes no sign of seeing the others. Not even a twitch.
(7:57:29 PM) Gwen: The Director looks over the team. "Have a s-" His eyes stop on Elliot for a moment. "Clearly I have a phone call to make…anyway, you have a job to do." He slides folders forward. "Russia! Diplomatic mission."
(7:57:56 PM) Scantron: Satyana takes a folder and leafs through it.
(7:58:05 PM) Tox|Laptop: "To Russia, with love," Mike remarks, grabbing his folder and opening it.
(7:58:06 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe flips it open and fkips through
(7:58:14 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe stars humming
(7:58:23 PM) Alivi: Raine takes a folder and starts to look through it carefully.
(7:58:25 PM) dawny: The man picks one up and glances through it. "Yes Sir."
(7:58:26 PM) Gwen: "First and foremost, you have an addition to the team."
(7:58:31 PM) Lurker: Raj picks a folder up, looking through it.
(7:58:55 PM) Scantron: "The man outside the door?"
(7:59:07 PM) Tox|Laptop: "That guy?" Mike asks, pointing a thumb at Tall, Dark and Ugly.
(8:00:23 PM) Gwen: The Director looks to Mike and blinks once. "This is Agent Stephene Blanc, former /head/ of Team 6. He's been taken off desk-duty after his injury, and is going to spending time with the Team…the Range Rover has been converted into an Escalade model to accommodate the Team size."
(8:00:26 PM) dawny: "Agent Blanc, team leader Waylend."
(8:01:14 PM) Tox|Laptop: He waves his hand. "Just Mike's fine, Agent Blanc." Mike nods.
(8:02:03 PM) Lurker: Raj sizes up Agent Blanc.
(8:02:10 PM) Scantron: "Agent Sanmugasunderam. I go by Satyana."
(8:02:22 PM) Tom90deg: "Zoe."
(8:02:31 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Mainly on account of who can remember that last name." Mike grins. "So what's up in Mother Russia?"
(8:03:06 PM) dawny: Stephane glances everyone over. "As you wish" He looks at the folder again.
(8:03:29 PM) Gwen: "you're going to be visiting the Lake Baikal Conclave of Sylvans. They have an issue." Wits+Occult for info on Sylvans
(8:04:07 PM) Alivi: 1d10e+6
(8:04:07 PM) Quidmore: Alivi: 1d10e+6=8 (2)
(8:04:14 PM) Tox|Laptop: 1d10e+3 Whee
(8:04:14 PM) Quidmore: Tox|Laptop: Whee: 1d10e+3=5 (2)
(8:04:27 PM) Tom90deg: 1d10e+3
(8:04:27 PM) Quidmore: Tom90deg: 1d10e+3=11 (8)
(8:04:32 PM) Scantron: 1d10e+9 no idea what a sylvan is, so specialty may or may not apply
(8:04:32 PM) Quidmore: Scantron: no idea what a sylvan is, so specialty may or may not apply: 1d10e+9=14 (5)
(8:04:35 PM) Gwen: 1d10e+4
(8:04:35 PM) Quidmore: Gwen: 1d10e+4=8 (4)
(8:06:02 PM) Lurker: 1d10e+6
(8:06:03 PM) Quidmore: Lurker: 1d10e+6=8 (2)
(8:07:22 PM) Absrev: 1d10e+7
(8:07:22 PM) Quidmore: Absrev: 1d10e+7=13 (6)
(8:08:11 PM) Gwen: So Elliot, Satyana, and Zoe all know that Sylvans are WILDLY xenophobic humanoid tree spirits.
(8:09:11 PM) dawny left the room (quit: Client exited).
(8:09:24 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Sylvans?" Mike only knows "Sylvan" from that learning center back home.
(8:09:30 PM) Absrev: "Must be bad. Sylvans hate outside contact."
(8:09:46 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Joy."
(8:09:48 PM) Alivi: Raine looks over at Elliot, "Interesting."
(8:10:25 PM) Gwen: "IT's bloody cool there right now. Dress warm. The plane is fuelled and ready…oh, and by the way. DON'T do anything environmentally unfriendly near them."
(8:10:33 PM) Tom90deg: "Those are those like….Nazi tree spirits,right?"
(8:10:48 PM) Tom90deg: "Define envriomently unfrendly."
(8:10:53 PM) Tom90deg: "Should we not drive near them?"
(8:11:14 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Environmentally unfriendly. I'll keep that in mind…"
(8:11:20 PM) Absrev: "Driving anything like the Rover might inspire violence."
(8:11:27 PM) Scantron: "Generally, their only shared characteristics with the nazis are xenophobia and a fondness for spiraling imagery."
(8:11:29 PM) Alivi: "Of course not…."
(8:11:37 PM) Scantron: "But that is a succinct summary, yes."
(8:11:39 PM) Lurker: Rajih nods to The Director, closes his folder, and tucks it away inside of his outfit - which is almost like a Gi, but not quite.
(8:11:53 PM) Tom90deg: "Great. So what….shold we get a bunch of….bikes or a electirc car or something?"
(8:12:02 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike does the same, inside his vest. "Alright, guys, let's roll." He stands.
(8:12:05 PM) Alivi: Raine tucks his folder in his bag and looks over at Zoe, "We could walk."
(8:12:17 PM) Tom90deg: "Man, screw walking."
(8:12:18 PM) Gwen: "Zo' is the Queen of lazy."
(8:12:36 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe gets up and heads on down to the car. "You're bloody right I am!"
(8:12:46 PM) Alivi: "Even so, nothing more environmentally friendly than walking. And it is healthy for your body…"
(8:13:04 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Got a point." Mike slips into the driver's seat.
(8:13:05 PM) Absrev: "Walking is fine."
(8:13:11 PM) Tom90deg: "I either port or Parkour."
(8:13:21 PM) Gwen: Addison takes Elliot's hand and walks down to the garage with him.
(8:13:30 PM) Alivi: Raine walks to the garage.
(8:13:37 PM) Alivi: And enters the car
(8:14:59 PM) Absrev: His hand gripped Addison's tightly, a strange sense of fear coming over him as he headed to the rover, the suit glowing a faint yellow. Something about returning to duty was…bothering him all of a sudden.
(8:15:06 PM) Scantron: Satyana follows.
(8:15:19 PM) Scantron: "So… what exactly is Elliot wearing?"
(8:15:39 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Some kinda wacky containment suit. It'll keep him in check, so Metatron says."
(8:15:53 PM) Tom90deg: "Useful."
(8:16:10 PM) Tom90deg: "Don't suppose you can dim the lights though? Or wear something ove rit? That's a bit stealth defeating."
(8:16:38 PM) Absrev: "That wont be a problem."
(8:17:36 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike starts the car. "Let's get this party started." And off they tot.
(8:19:03 PM) Lurker: Raj's "Russia" outfit is a large white coat with a furred hood and a half-cape for easy snow-removal, as well as his almost trademark red sash, and big calf-high boots that looks fairly warm. He's decked out for trekking through the snows.
(8:19:40 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe's addition is a long brown coat, looks rather warm
(8:20:15 PM) Gwen: The flight to Russia is long and boring as well, as you are flying over snow-covered wasteland.
(8:20:32 PM) Alivi: Raine is not wearing anything that would put him out of normal attire. He doesn't seem to have brought a jacket.
(8:20:53 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike actually naps on the flight.
(8:23:05 PM) Lurker: Raine is a Viking.
(8:23:29 PM) Scantron: Satyana has a fluffy coat.
(8:23:52 PM) Gwen: The plane lands on a small airstrip on the shores of this: The lake is frozen over and it's fucking cold. The meeting place is a set of GPS co-ordinates that point to somewhere on the edge of the Boreal forest
(8:24:13 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe climbs on out! "Blllarg. Hate cold weather."
(8:24:25 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike gets out of the plane and shivers. "A-Alright. We're on foot from here."
(8:24:34 PM) Scantron: Satyana grumbles as she follows out. "Where was it that we were that had the ship stuck in the ice…?"
(8:24:41 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Siberia."
(8:25:15 PM) Scantron: "Right."
(8:25:46 PM) Tox|Laptop: "We all ready?" Mike stamps his feet and blows on his hands.
(8:25:58 PM) Scantron: "We better be."
(8:25:58 PM) Tom90deg: "Yup. Lets get this done."
(8:28:05 PM) Lurker: Raj brings his hood up and nods. "Let us get this done as quickly as possible."
(8:28:13 PM) Tom90deg: "Mmm…"
(8:28:21 PM) Tom90deg: "At least it's not snowing."
(8:28:28 PM) Alivi: Raine steps out of the plane and looks around, "Shame…."
(8:28:28 PM) Gwen: It begins to snow.
(8:28:37 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Snow would suck." He shivers again, stuffing his hands in his pockets.
(8:28:38 PM) Alivi: Raine brightens, "Well this is nice."
(8:28:39 PM) Lurker: Raj looks up, then starts to laugh.
(8:28:39 PM) Scantron: "Agreed, and if we're going to keep visiting Russia, I need to either get better cold weather gear or gain some weight."
(8:28:40 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Zoe, I hate you."
(8:28:42 PM) Lurker: "Congratulations."
(8:28:59 PM) Alivi: Raine seems very content and almost energetic and healthy looking.
(8:29:07 PM) Scantron: Unamused Satyana is not amused.
(8:29:22 PM) Scantron: "Are you somehow warm or does it just not bother you?"
(8:29:26 PM) Scantron: This is addressed to Raine.
(8:29:44 PM) Alivi: Raine looks back over to Satyana, "I do not understand what you are asking about."
(8:30:42 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Raine's from Finland. This is probably normal weather."
(8:31:11 PM) Scantron: "[Damn]. I was hoping he was somehow warmer than his surroundings."
(8:31:16 PM) Tom90deg: "This is NOT my fault!"
(8:31:25 PM) Tom90deg: "I can't controll the bloody weather."
(8:31:28 PM) Gwen: Addison comes out in a blue winter jacket that matches the colour of her hair. "I /hate/ cold…"
(8:31:31 PM) Tox|Laptop: "I blame you, Zoe."
(8:31:34 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike grins.
(8:31:37 PM) Tom90deg: "Bla bla bla."
(8:31:43 PM) Alivi: Raine grins, "Of course! It is the best weather, My father said best thing to do is to pretend you are not cold. But I think it is not necessary. But maybe for you it is."
(8:32:41 PM) Scantron: "I'm perpetually underprepared and am not built for this weather." She nestles herself deeper in her coat. "I'm a warm weather person."
(8:32:43 PM) Lurker: "I almost wish I could control the weather. I would listen to all of your complaints and then make it worse," Raj speaks up.
(8:33:06 PM) Tom90deg: "you're a jerk then."
(8:33:32 PM) Alivi: Raine sighs and attempts to move the snow away from the group.
(8:33:40 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike lets his gaze pass over the team, settling on Addison a moment.
(8:33:50 PM) Lurker: "I wouldn't tell you I could control the weather though, you'd never know it was me. You would just assume that it's karma," he says, chuckling. "Who knows? Maybe I'm secretly a weather god."
(8:33:53 PM) Alivi: 1d10e+8 coldblooded
(8:33:53 PM) Quidmore: Alivi: coldblooded: 1d10e+8=17 (9)
(8:33:55 PM) Lurker: He wiggles his fingers at Zoe.
(8:34:12 PM) Scantron: "No, I think I would be able to tell if you were a weather god."
(8:34:13 PM) Tom90deg: "My Karma is GREAT thank you."
(8:34:30 PM) Lurker: Raj just smirks at Zoe.
(8:34:38 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Play nice."
(8:34:41 PM) Scantron: "And karma hasn't been real since the 1890's."
(8:34:42 PM) Lurker: "Obviously, I am not a weather god."
(8:34:44 PM) Scantron: "Sheesh."
(8:35:14 PM) Gwen: The snow around the group seems to fade into nothing. There appears to be some kind dome over the room that is steering the snow away from them.
(8:35:41 PM) Scantron: Satyana shivers.
(8:35:56 PM) Alivi: Raine smiles hopefully that should do it.
(8:35:56 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike looks up and around. "…Neat trick, whoever did that."
(8:36:37 PM) Scantron: "My guess is Raine."
(8:36:46 PM) Gwen: Addison takes her hand out of her coat pocket and points at Raine. "My guess is he cyromancer."
(8:36:48 PM) Gwen: **the
(8:37:06 PM) Gwen: **cryomancer
(8:37:19 PM) Lurker: Raj moves outside of the 'dome' to stand in the snow.
(8:37:37 PM) Tox|Laptop: "That does stand to reason. Anyway, shall we?" Mike moves to start moving towards their GPS.
(8:38:08 PM) Lurker: The mercenary tags along outside of the dome, enjoying the snow landing on his large coat.
(8:38:46 PM) Tom90deg: "Thanks."
(8:38:54 PM) Alivi: Raine sticks his hands in his pockets and shrugs. "No problem." Raine too walks outside the dome rather enjoying the soft snowfall.
(8:39:14 PM) Gwen: Addison nods and walks over to Mike, her feet crunching in the snow as she walks. The GPS is pointing directly in front of the party.
(8:39:36 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike smiles and walks alongside Addison, heading ahead. "Dead ahead, guys."
(8:40:40 PM) Gwen: They are heading towards forest.
(8:40:51 PM) Gwen: Perception. Those with supernatural sense +2

(8:41:57 PM) Absrev: Standing with Addison, he seemed unperturbed by the cold. Whatever the suit did, it seemed to also keep him warm.
(8:42:02 PM) Tox|Laptop: 1d10e+8 I'm a shaaaark suck my diiiiiick

(8:44:56 PM) Gwen: Raj, Raine, Satyana, Mike, and Elliot all see someone standing at the top of the hill. A beautiful, stark white wolf at its side.
(8:45:23 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike stops, turning to face the wolf.
(8:45:41 PM) Lurker: Raj looks up. Threat detection roll?
(8:45:53 PM) Tox|Laptop: "I'll go on ahead," he says, heading to the edge of the protective dome.
(8:46:03 PM) Tom90deg: "I'll come."
(8:46:28 PM) Scantron: Satyana follows.
(8:46:32 PM) Gwen: Raj - Wits+Survival
(8:46:50 PM) Lurker: 1d10e+4
(8:46:50 PM) Quidmore: Lurker: 1d10e+4=9 (5)
(8:47:07 PM) Gwen: The person on top of the hill does not appear to be a threat.
(8:47:16 PM) Alivi: Raine creates his icepad in his hands and brings up the image of the person on the hill with the wolf.
(8:47:19 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe follows! She's damn cold and wants to get this over with
(8:47:31 PM) Gwen: Raine sees: plus a white wolf.
(8:47:31 PM) Lurker: Raj relaxes somewhat. He raises a hand to signal to them in a greeting.
(8:47:32 PM) Tox|Laptop: As he crosses the snowy field, Mike blurs into his wolf form, snow beginning to frost his fur.
(8:47:52 PM) Alivi: Raine smiles, "She looks friendly!"
(8:48:52 PM) Tom90deg: "Coat looks warm."
(8:49:24 PM) Scantron1 [~ten.tsacmoc.nm.1dsh.6EEFF072-CRInys|nacsded#ten.tsacmoc.nm.1dsh.6EEFF072-CRInys|nacsded] entered the room.
(8:49:30 PM) Alivi: "That it does," Raine says with a tilt of his head, he walks forward.
(8:49:52 PM) Tox|Laptop: Greetings, Mike says to the wolf as he approaches.
(8:49:53 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe walks on towards the person and the wolf
(8:49:53 PM) Gwen: She pats the wolf as they approach. She is strikingly beautiful…but shockingly alien. Her eyes are a shade of blue unlike anything in humanity.
(8:49:59 PM) Tom90deg: "Hi."
(8:50:13 PM) Lurker: Raj gives a bow to the woman.
(8:50:36 PM) Gwen: "You are from the Bureau are you not," her voice is melodic and lyrical…and HEAVILY accented.
(8:50:42 PM) Tom90deg: "Yup."
(8:50:46 PM) Gwen: The wolf sniffles at Mike.
(8:51:01 PM) Alivi: What kind of accent?
(8:51:26 PM) Scantron1: Satyana nods, then examines the wolf more.
(8:51:30 PM) Gwen: You're not sure…the accent is unlike anything in this world.
(8:51:40 PM) Alivi: Raine smiles and nods his head, "Greetings."
(8:51:43 PM) Scantron left the room (quit: Ping timeout).
(8:51:51 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike sniffs back, greeting him in the way wolves do. This one heard that you need assistance from us.
(8:52:16 PM) Scantron1 is now known as Scantron
(8:52:44 PM) Absrev: Elliot didn't seem to be up for approaching this figure, watching carefully from afar.
(8:54:02 PM) Gwen: She glances over the party, watching them closely. Addison stands beside Elliot, watching him closely. "You will come this way…say nothing…touch nothing." She turns and walks towards the woods before pausing. "My people have a saying…one broken bone for every twig snapped underfoot…"
(8:55:13 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe sighs. "Right."
(8:55:20 PM) Tom90deg: "Lets get a move on."
(8:55:24 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike pads along beside the wolf.
(8:56:08 PM) Alivi: Raine nods and follows along.
(8:56:16 PM) Lurker: Raj follows along, very soft in his step.
(8:57:18 PM) Absrev: Nodding, Elliot walked with the others. He didn't think much of Sylvans, but then again they didn't think much of them, likely.
(8:58:04 PM) Gwen: Addison moves with Elliot. The Team is lead into the boreal woods. They are eerily still and quiet. Everyone has the sense that they are being watched.
(8:58:18 PM) Scantron: Satyana always found them interesting, considering how their xenophobia meant relatively little outsider insight into their culture.
(8:58:26 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe looks around, she's not in a great mood. She dosn't like the woods at the best of times.
(8:58:38 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike's looking around, keeping pace with the wolf, still attempting to communicate with it.
(9:02:02 PM) Gwen: They are lead to a clearing that seems out of place…almost as if, the clearing is new. There are stumps as far as the eye can see. Anyone with Empathy 2 or above, can tell this is emotionally draining on the Sylvan. "The elders will meet us here…"
(9:02:33 PM) Alivi: Raine looks around, he is slightly reminded of home that is until they come to the clearing in which he frowns and comes to a stop.
(9:02:48 PM) Tom90deg: "Huh."
(9:03:00 PM) Lurker: Raj stops, surveying the area. He says nothing, and at Zoe's "huh", he cuffs her shoulder, bringing a finger to his mouth.
(9:03:01 PM) Scantron: Satyana shifts from foot to foot and rubs her arms to keep warm, still shivering a bit.
(9:03:04 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike takes an involuntary step backwards. «This hurts her….this devastation…»
(9:03:23 PM) Tox|Laptop: He blurs back into human form.
(9:03:28 PM) Absrev: "Clear cutting."
(9:03:59 PM) Lurker: Raj rolls his eyes.
(9:04:03 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe glares back. "What?"
(9:04:05 PM) Alivi: «Obviously… whoever has done something like this had no love or respect for nature.»
(9:04:18 PM) Lurker: Raj jerks the finger infront of his mouth again.
(9:04:36 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe rolls her eyes and turns back to the figure and wolf
(9:05:44 PM) Lurker: Raj's hand returns to his side, and he stands still - like a statue.
(9:08:35 PM) Gwen: Out from the trees three more figures in similar garb seem to fade out of the foliage. The woman bows her head, clasping her hands to her chest as they approach. The three are two old men, and one old woman…clearly elders.
(9:09:00 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike inclines his head respectfully.
(9:09:08 PM) Lurker: Raj bows again, finally moving once more.
(9:10:10 PM) Gwen: The three elders stop and look over the team. The man speaks in a COMPLETELY foreign language to the woman, who nods once. "You are the guardians from the Bureau. You have come about our forest."
(9:10:14 PM) Absrev: Watching from the distance, his eyes flashed with green as he looked over the sylvan.
(9:10:32 PM) Scantron: Satyana nods. «It happens.»
(9:10:48 PM) Tom90deg: «Did they call us or we call them?»
(9:11:15 PM) Tox|Laptop: "That is correct, Elders."
(9:12:27 PM) Gwen: "On the far shore of the waters…a foul metal construct devouring our forests. You shall take Hunter Arisaerya to that place and find out why."
(9:12:46 PM) Tom90deg: "Right."
(9:12:48 PM) Tox|Laptop: "It shall be as you command."
(9:13:22 PM) Absrev left the room (quit: Client exited).
(9:13:38 PM) Absrev [~ten.ralugnicym.438BDD6E-CRInys|versba#ten.ralugnicym.438BDD6E-CRInys|versba] entered the room.
(9:13:52 PM) Gwen: "Our forests are warded from man…somehow the wards no longer protect us. Hundreds of us have died…not to mention the destruction of the trees."
(9:14:36 PM) Alivi: Raine frowns at this.
(9:14:47 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike nods. "What generated this ward?"
(9:15:03 PM) Gwen: "The Forest Heart."
(9:15:04 PM) Scantron: «My first guess is leprechauns.»
(9:15:38 PM) Tom90deg: «Those are irish not russian.»
(9:15:56 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike nods. "May we see this Heart? It may help us determine why the wards have failed."
(9:16:04 PM) Absrev: "Ancient wards, then."
(9:16:08 PM) Lurker: "Has anything happened to the Heart in the past little while, prior to the deforestation?"
(9:16:25 PM) Tom90deg: «We should be looking for the baba yaga.»
(9:16:44 PM) Scantron: «I don't care if their Irish, my first guess is still leprechauns.»
(9:17:26 PM) Alivi: Raine just watches the elders and Mike.
(9:17:27 PM) Gwen: "Hunter Arisaerya, take them too the Heart…but be swig…no /human/ should be allowed near it."
(9:17:33 PM) Absrev: Looking to Addison, he smiled slightly. "Nice to be out again." His confinement hadn't afforded him much freedom in the last month.
(9:18:11 PM) Lurker: Raj turns to Mike. "I will wait here for your return. I wish to not cause more offense or disrespect the Sylvan further."
(9:18:30 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Very well." Mike nods to Raj and turns to the woman. "Lead me, Huntress."
(9:20:05 PM) Gwen: Addison smiles and nods, taking his hand once more. "It's nice to see you out again," she whispers. The Huntress starts leading them towards the forest's edge. She looks over her shoulder. "No non-sylvan has set foot here, before…"
(9:20:36 PM) Scantron: Satyana follows. She seems reasonably excited in spite of the cold. "Is the Heart warm?"
(9:20:55 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike paces along with the woman.
(9:21:01 PM) Tom90deg: "Do you keep a watch on this area?"
(9:22:14 PM) Gwen: "This area is the safest area in these woods." The trees creak and form a staircase upwards to…something…that doesn't make sense. The stairs lead into a tree.
(9:23:57 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike steps onto the staircase, trying to open himself to the forest.
(9:24:22 PM) Alivi: Raine follows behind the woman.
(9:24:29 PM) Scantron: Satyana steps onto it as well. "Impressive."
(9:24:33 PM) Tom90deg: Zoe folllows on up
(9:24:58 PM) Tom90deg: "That didn't answer my question though…I'm wondering if you would have seen anyone messing with the heart."
(9:25:04 PM) Gwen: They walk up these stairs for a long while until the come to a room bathed in green light.
(9:25:47 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike steps on into the room.
(9:27:22 PM) Gwen: There are sylvan guards standing around a beating…green…heart-like thing
(9:28:33 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike takes a hesitant step forward, then looks at Satyana. "Do you know anything about this?"
(9:29:11 PM) Scantron: "Hm…" She peers. What roll?
(9:29:11 PM) Alivi: Raine watches in awe.
(9:30:29 PM) Gwen: Int+Occult
(9:30:42 PM) Scantron: 1d10e+9
(9:30:43 PM) Quidmore: Scantron: 1d10e+9=16 (7)
(9:32:06 PM) Gwen: Satyana is not sure…however it appears to be a MASSIVE energy source
(9:33:27 PM) Scantron: "I'm not sure… but it appears to be a *massive* energy source."
(9:34:26 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Hm." He steps towards it again, before turning to the Huntress. "May I?" he asks, gesturing to the Heart. "My wolf might be able to tell me more if…" he trails off, facing the Heart.
(9:35:26 PM) Absrev: Looking at the heart, he seemed to be rather drawn to its strange light, at least more than he'd been interested in most things tonight,
(9:35:56 PM) Gwen: "Your human touch will pervert the Heart."
(9:36:26 PM) Tox|Laptop: "I am a werewolf…would it be better if I touched it in that form instead?"
(9:36:42 PM) Gwen: "No. you cannt touch it."
(9:37:00 PM) Scantron: "I can't think of a single way that could go well that doesn't end in me waking up and making some hot tea."
(9:37:28 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Understood, Huntress…has anything changed here, or is it just the metal monster devouring the trees?" Mike begins pacing around the Heart.
(9:37:32 PM) Tom90deg: "Mm….Hot drinks sound good."
(9:38:05 PM) Gwen: "Just the metal creature."
(9:38:20 PM) Alivi: Raine is silently observing.
(9:38:29 PM) Tom90deg: "Well…guess we need to check that out then…."
(9:38:40 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Very well…we shall go, then, to see the creature." Mike returns to the team.
(9:38:59 PM) Scantron: "Or maybe hot chocolate…" Satyana looks at the heart for another moment and then turns to go back.
(9:40:09 PM) Gwen: "We must move swiftly."
(9:42:09 PM) Absrev: Turning away from the heart, Elliot dutifully followed along. This was far from his show tonight, he was just getting into the swing of things again.
(9:42:14 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Then let's go." Mike heads off.
(9:42:18 PM) Gwen: The Huntress leads them through the decimated clearing to the shores of the lake. There is a building on the shores. Perceptions.

(9:44:11 PM) Tom90deg: "Seems logical."
(9:44:11 PM) Scantron: "Someone or something deactivated the wards so they could harvest lumber."
(9:44:19 PM) Scantron: "Don't they have an Amazon Rainforest for that?'
(9:44:38 PM) Tox|Laptop: "How could they deactivate the wards, though…?"
(9:45:21 PM) Gwen: "We must go in and find out."
(9:45:30 PM) Tom90deg: "Maybe the logging machine has something to do with it?"
(9:46:53 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Then we'll go in. "I think it'd be best if the Huntress' wolf and I go in first…two wolves will probably attract less attention than a whole crowd of people. Just for initial recon."
(9:47:10 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Or — " Something occurs to him. "Is anyone even over there?"
(9:47:10 PM) Tom90deg: "ALright."
(9:47:17 PM) Scantron: "That works."

(9:47:53 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Hey, Raine. Could you do your ice recon thing and let us know if anyone's over there?"
(9:48:05 PM) Alivi: Raine looks at his icepad, "Give me a second…"
(9:48:31 PM) Lurker: Raj approaches and taps Mike's shoulder. "I can shadow you and the wolf without being seen. If anyone attempts to harm either of you, I can intervene."
(9:48:56 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike turns his head to face Raj. He nods. "Sounds good."
(9:49:30 PM) Absrev: Looking over towards Raine, he didn't have much of a read on the new team member or his capabilities, using the opportunity to learn more.
(9:49:33 PM) Scantron: Satyana goes over to a tree and looks at it. Can she climb it? Or are they back in a clearing?
(9:49:36 PM) Lurker: Raj removes a small, glowing stone from the pouch around his sash and fiddles with slipping it into his coat and shirt.

(9:51:02 PM) Alivi: Raine frowns, "Something is interfereing…."
(9:51:12 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike frowns. "Can you try it again?"
(9:51:21 PM) Absrev: Looking out to the sawmill, Elliot's eyes lit up with a rainbow of colors, his suit responding in kind.
(9:51:25 PM) Lurker: Raj turns to Mike. "Give the word and I will advance."
(9:51:26 PM) Absrev: "Let me try."
(9:52:05 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Go for it, Elliot. Raj, advance with me and Huntress' wolf, please."

(9:52:13 PM) Quidmore: Absrev: The Fourth: Emotion: 1d10e+10=22 (10, 2)
(9:52:57 PM) Alivi: Raine nods, "I will try again,"

(9:53:34 PM) Quidmore: Alivi: 1d10e+6=9 (3)
(9:53:41 PM) Tom90deg left the room (quit: Quit: ~ Trillian Astra - ~).
(9:53:57 PM) Alivi_ [~moc.rr.ser.anilorac.09D2C63B-CRInys|ivilA#moc.rr.ser.anilorac.09D2C63B-CRInys|ivilA] entered the room.
(9:53:58 PM) Alivi left the room (quit: Connection reset by peer).
(9:53:58 PM) Alivi_ is now known as Alivi
(9:54:44 PM) Gwen: Elliot picks up on a myriad of works. There are two people that stand out with more emotion than the others. Raine gets a brief image of two people talking, one of them is in the same type of garb that Arisaeria is in.
(9:55:32 PM) Lurker: Raj waits for Mike to move.
(9:56:09 PM) Absrev: "Two that I can see."
(9:56:54 PM) Alivi: Raine frowns furthur, "Mike…wait. There is….someone who looks like a Slyvan there."
(9:57:18 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Looks like a Sylvan." Mike frowns, turning to the woman. "Huntress, could a fellow Sylvan bypass the Heart's wards?"
(9:57:59 PM) Absrev: "We should advance, catch them in the act."
(9:58:13 PM) Gwen: Her eyes glow faintly. "Yes…one of the Wardmasters could…"
(9:58:33 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Then I believe that is what is happening. Quickly, we should move. Send your wolf with me."
(9:58:46 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike blurs into wolf form and sets off towards the sawmill.
(9:58:56 PM) Gwen: She says something in her lyrical language and the wolf takes off after Mike
(9:59:04 PM) Alivi: "Mike Wait!"
(9:59:19 PM) Absrev: The emotional reading he'd gotten definitely singles the two of them out. It had taken a long time to filter through this new kind of sight, a lot of time, practice, and pain. Heading towards the sawmill, the colors on his suit dulled as he went quietly towards the building.
(9:59:22 PM) Tox|Laptop: The wolf stops almost on a dime, flicking its ears. «Yes, Raine?»
(9:59:38 PM) Alivi: Raine sighs, he looks at the huntress, and shows her the icepad, "Can you identify this person for me?"
(9:59:43 PM) Absrev: 1d10+7 Stealth
(9:59:43 PM) Quidmore: Absrev: Stealth: 1d10+7=15 (8)
(9:59:47 PM) Alivi: «Just wait before charging in please….»
(9:59:58 PM) Alivi: «We need as much information as we can get…»
(10:00:13 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Elliot, Raj, a moment.»
(10:00:34 PM) Absrev: «Understood, getting close without being seen will give us the advantage, however.»
(10:01:06 PM) Scantron: «Good thinking.»
(10:01:13 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike resumes moving forward, instructing the wolf to stay at his side as he creeps ahead.
(10:01:14 PM) Gwen: The Huntress looks to the pad and her eyes widen. "Traitor," she shouts in both anger and aguish. "That is Ward Master Lothrian!" She is looking a man in the same cloak she is in. he has black hair and a black beard.
(10:01:33 PM) Scantron: "That would explain a lot."
(10:01:37 PM) Tox|Laptop: «How should we deal with the traitor, Huntress?»
(10:01:41 PM) Absrev: Elliot doesn't halt, moving from cover to cover as he advanced on the mill. «Just give me some space to work.»
(10:01:46 PM) Lurker: Raj begins moving towards the sawmill - a few feet away from the group he simply /vanishes/.
(10:01:59 PM) Alivi: Raine frowns, "I am sorry to hear that Huntress…."
(10:02:03 PM) Tox|Laptop: Obviously that's not TO the Huntress, rather relayed through a team member.
(10:03:35 PM) Scantron: "…" «I wish I could do that.»
(10:04:03 PM) Scantron: "The wolf wants to know how we should deal with the traitor."
(10:04:04 PM) Gwen: "He must be killed. NOW!" She looks too her wolf and says something. "Bureau Guardians, my people will descend upon this place and make them /pay/. We must attack."
(10:04:15 PM) Lurker: Mike can likely faintly make out the footprints alongside, although they're incredibly light, like he's running on the snow instead of through it.
(10:04:32 PM) Alivi: Raine frowns, "W-wait…. is there some other way?"
(10:04:51 PM) Absrev: «What's our objective here.><
(10:05:36 PM) Alivi: «To help as much as we can!»
(10:05:55 PM) Tox|Laptop: «We have our orders!>Mike raps.
(10:06:29 PM) Alivi: «Which is what?! We cannot attack straight out there has to be another way!»
(10:06:42 PM) Tox|Laptop: «This must be the Sylvan way. A coordinated assault, hit him from multiple angles.»
(10:06:57 PM) Scantron: «Does interfering with the customs of a xenophobic society /really/ sound like a sane plan to you?»
(10:06:59 PM) Alivi: «Mike! There are people down there.»
(10:07:22 PM) Absrev: Moving up toward the mill, Elliot continues to advance on the pair. «If it's an assault then it's simple. In position.»
(10:07:50 PM) Gwen: The Huntress looks to Raine. "What do you suggest?"
(10:07:57 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Lothrian is our target,>Mike says as he advances on the sawmill. «Raj, break left. The wolf and I will hit from this direction, and Elliot's off to the right.»
(10:08:46 PM) Alivi: Raine sighs, "We could be diplomatic, try to get them to leave the area, you can take the wardmaster back and punish him as you will in the manner according to your laws…"
(10:08:53 PM) Lurker: Raj moves towards the left, readying himself for an attack. What exactly is to the left - is there a door or anything?
(10:09:19 PM) Tox|Laptop: Oh, I figure the two men are out in a field. Mike's setting up a triangle pincer-type arrangement.
(10:09:26 PM) Scantron: «I'll wait here where I'm less likely to get killed. Bring me back anything you need identified.»
(10:10:26 PM) Gwen: "These people, have killed my people, little one." She folds her arms. «Bureau-Wolf…do not kill the ward master…bring him back to me.»
(10:10:30 PM) Absrev: Elliot's hand moves to his neck, adjusting an unseen setting. There's a light sound in his ear. "Containment level 1 released."
(10:11:11 PM) Alivi: "I understand that but please…. these people may not know what they have done!"
(10:11:26 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Understood, Huntress. Take him alive, Team.»
(10:11:43 PM) Lurker: «And what of the other?»
(10:11:57 PM) Gwen: "He will be brought to me…I will hold off the attack…for now."
(10:12:11 PM) Tox|Laptop: «He is of little consequence to us. Incapacitate him.»
(10:12:25 PM) Alivi: Raine relaxes a bit. "Thank you Huntress…."
(10:12:36 PM) Lurker: Raj begins to scale the sawmill, readying for an attack to incap the other man. Simple takedown.
(10:12:54 PM) Lurker: «In position, I will take out the other. The wardmaster is left to you, Michael.»
(10:13:03 PM) Gwen: Everyone at the sawmill give me both stealth and perception. Give me tags with your rolls please
(10:13:21 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Understood, Raj. Elliot, you're on overwatch. The Sylvan wolf and I will deal with the traitor.»

(10:15:20 PM) Quidmore: Absrev: Perception: 1d10e+6=11 (5)
(10:19:35 PM) Gwen: Both Elliot and Mike have two goons in their area that present some concern. Raj has eyes on the Sylvan and a rotund Russian man.
(10:20:29 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Enemies. I have eyes on two…>Is there a path to the Sylvan that evades them, or must they be dealt with?
(10:20:50 PM) Lurker: How close are the Sylvan and Russian?
(10:21:47 PM) Gwen: They are close, having a chat. Tox, what do you mean?
(10:22:20 PM) Tox|Laptop: Like, if Mike wanted to, could he ignore the two people he sees and head straight for his target, or are they in his way and he can't get around them?
(10:22:48 PM) Gwen: can't get around them
(10:24:09 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike bares his fangs. «Raine…I can't get around them and I can't really do much non-lethal…>He sounds almost…apologetic?
(10:24:21 PM) Alivi: «Mike….don't….»
(10:24:33 PM) Absrev: With a flash of orange light, Wolfsbane and Mistletoe appear in Elliot's hands as he approaches the two goons.
(10:24:37 PM) Alivi: Raine sounds like he is pleading.
(10:25:17 PM) Scantron: «Quiet, Raine.»
(10:25:47 PM) Gwen: «Shut it Satyana!»
(10:25:58 PM) Absrev: «Two targets in sight. Eliminating.»
(10:26:00 PM) Tox|Laptop: «…I have my orders, Raine. They're…in my way.>Mike signals to the wolf, improvising a countdown before they attack simultaneously.
(10:26:05 PM) Gwen: «Elliot!»
(10:26:20 PM) Alivi: «Mike! This isn't the orders! We aren't supposed to do this!»
(10:26:31 PM) Tox|Laptop: Note: They aren't attacking now, just improvising.
(10:27:09 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Raine, our orders are to support the Sylvans. Orders became 'retrieve the Wardmaster.' I've got goons in my way, if you have a better idea, I am all ears.»
(10:27:10 PM) Absrev: «We're here to assist the Sylvan. That's what i'm doing.»
(10:27:26 PM) Gwen: «Do not kill those people!»
(10:27:40 PM) Alivi: «We are supposed to assist them in the best way for the interest of all parties! Mike there has to be another way… »
(10:28:03 PM) Lurker: «This is foolish, we are losing time - if they finish their conversation, we might lose them.»
(10:28:08 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike growls in frustration. «Then help me see it. I'm not seeing anything else right now!»
(10:28:43 PM) Gwen: Addison's frustration floats through their minds. «Who can see the Sylvan!?"
(10:28:46 PM) Gwen: **»
(10:29:12 PM) Alivi: «Can we incapacitate them without killing them? Could someone influence them elsewhere ->Raine stops as Addison's frustration leaks through.
(10:29:12 PM) Absrev: «…understood.>Ducking back behind cover, both guns ceased to exist once more.
(10:29:43 PM) Tox|Laptop: «I….we might be able to, but as soon as we break cover, our advantage is lost. I've never tried….knocking somebody out as a wolf before…»
(10:29:52 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike sounds dubious.
(10:30:07 PM) Alivi: Raine sighs, «You are the leader, don't let me stop you…»
(10:30:08 PM) Lurker: «I can»
(10:31:04 PM) Absrev: «I don't have any non-lethal options available, but I can provide a distraction from here.»
(10:31:07 PM) Alivi: «Raj…please?»
(10:31:40 PM) Tox|Laptop: A plan forms in Mike's mind, and he communicates it to the Sylvan wolf as best as he is able.
(10:32:21 PM) Gwen: «Raj, can you take them out without causing a fatal injury?
(10:32:38 PM) Lurker: «I can incapacitate them both. I need a distraction.»
(10:32:46 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Okay…okay, we got this.>Mike nods to the wolf. «One distraction, coming up.»
(10:32:54 PM) Absrev: «
(10:33:04 PM) Gwen: «Elliot, two distractions are better than one.»
(10:33:09 PM) Lurker: «I will be taking the Sylvan first.»
(10:33:20 PM) Lurker: «On my mark, I will call for a distraction.»
(10:33:29 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Understood. Waiting on your mark.»
(10:33:42 PM) Alivi: Raine watches intently, looking for any signs or changes.
(10:33:44 PM) Lurker: Raj readies himself to leap down from his spot on the sawmill. He is still invisible for the moment.
(10:34:29 PM) Lurker: 1d10e+9 (Don't fuck me here Quid) Leap of Faith
(10:34:29 PM) Quidmore: Lurker: (Don't fuck me here Quid) Leap of Faith: 1d10e+9=12 (3)
(10:34:50 PM) Absrev: Taking the cue, Elliot stepped out towards the goons, tapping his neck as another release came off, and his suit started to glow brightly, negating any sense of stealth he had as a series of colors filled the air. He rushed towards one of them.
(10:34:58 PM) Lurker: «Now!»
(10:35:12 PM) Tox|Laptop: Both wolves howl as one, and then rush their respective targets.
(10:35:24 PM) Absrev: 1d10e+7 Going Solo: Bum Rush
(10:35:24 PM) Quidmore: Absrev: Going Solo: Bum Rush: 1d10e+7=12 (5)
(10:35:35 PM) Gwen: Raj lands on his mark, the Sylvan completely distracted by the wolves. The guards on the roof /freak/ at the sight of Elliot and freeze up.
(10:35:58 PM) Lurker: As soon as the distraction is in play, Raj springs off his position on the sawmill, deactivating his cloak so that anyone watching gets a marvelous view of Raj soaring down and smashing the Sylvan down into the ground with his attack.
(10:36:02 PM) Gwen: Addison looks to Raine with a smile, offering her fist out to him for a fist-bump.
(10:36:21 PM) Lurker: Is the Sylvan out? Or should Raj throw in a quick strike for good measure?
(10:36:26 PM) Tox|Laptop: The mismatched pair collide with their chosen marks, knocking them into each other with all the force of a combined two-hundred-some pounds of lean muscle.
(10:36:28 PM) Gwen: Sylvans are…frail people. He's out cold the moment his head hits the ground.
(10:36:31 PM) Absrev: Charging into one of them, Elliot's posture seemed…livid compared to before as the light turned red, an elbow connecting to the gut.
(10:36:35 PM) Alivi: Raine smiles, he seems relieved and happy all at the same time… he looks at Addison and is a bit confused. "What?"
(10:36:46 PM) Lurker: Raj quickly stands, turning to the Russian, and making to incapacitate him as well.
(10:36:50 PM) Lurker: Same roll, Gwen?
(10:36:55 PM) Lurker: or str+brawl?
(10:37:03 PM) Gwen: The Russian has a wolf on him
(10:37:05 PM) Gwen: Two actually
(10:37:12 PM) Lurker: I thought the wolves were for the goons
(10:37:17 PM) Scantron: Satyana hums a tune.
(10:37:23 PM) Gwen: Right sorry
(10:37:28 PM) Gwen: Yes, str+brawl
(10:37:39 PM) Lurker: 1d10e+9 Beatdown
(10:37:39 PM) Quidmore: Lurker: Beatdown: 1d10e+9=12 (3)
(10:37:42 PM) Gwen: Addison sends a crash course in fist bump to Raine's mind.
(10:37:47 PM) Gwen: He's out too.
(10:38:22 PM) Lurker: Raj sweeps the Russian's legs out from under him with a well placed kick, then follows through to slam the man into the ground and strike him out. Both of them down, he stands. «Done.»
(10:38:24 PM) Alivi: Raine blinks surprised and tilts his head as the information appears. He awkwardly but successfully fistbumps Addison.
(10:38:25 PM) Gwen: The guy Elliot elbows gasps and falls to his knees, winded.
(10:38:35 PM) Tox|Laptop: 1d10e+10 MACHO MAN RANDY SAVAGE
(10:38:35 PM) Quidmore: Tox|Laptop: MACHO MAN RANDY SAVAGE: 1d10e+10=14 (4)

(10:38:47 PM) Quidmore: Tox|Laptop: OOOH YEEEEAHHHHH: 1d10e+10=17 (7)
(10:39:03 PM) Gwen: Both targets are out cold.
(10:39:50 PM) Tox|Laptop: The wolves leap into the targets' chests, sending their heads together with a brutal-sounding crack. After they slump over, Mike snarls, turning to look at anyone else in the vicinity, teeth bared.
(10:40:32 PM) Gwen: «Bring the Sylvan back, boys.»
(10:40:46 PM) Alivi: «Are the other people ok?»
(10:41:11 PM) Alivi: Raine is looking at his icepad as well as waiting for communication.
(10:41:39 PM) Lurker: Raj carefully lays the Russian down so that his head doesn't slam into the ground, and places both hands by his sides. "I do not envy the headache you will have when you awake, but for now, rest well, and dream of large women," he says, before approaching the Sylvan and hoisting him up onto his shoulder, beginning to trudge back to the others.
(10:41:45 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Targets are down.>Mike pads around, looking at the others. «Everyone's alive.»
(10:41:54 PM) Absrev: Elliot turns to the other goon, advancing towards him as his rifles come back out. "
(10:42:12 PM) Absrev: (nix that shit)
(10:42:43 PM) Tox|Laptop: Mike and the other wolf pace them back to the Sylvan.
(10:42:52 PM) Alivi: «Thanks Mike….>Raine sounds truely thankful
(10:43:25 PM) Absrev: Getting up, Elliot looked up towards the others as he adjusted the limiter back to maximum. The colors seemed to run right out of him, leaving him pale again.
(10:43:28 PM) Tox|Laptop: «Not a problem.»
(10:44:29 PM) Lurker: As Raj returns, he keeps the Sylvan over his shoulder. "The human will have a terrible headache upon awakening from the blood rush, but he is unharmed. The Sylvan's head hit the ground, but as I do not see blood, we need not worry too much."
(10:44:59 PM) Alivi: Raine nods. «Makes sense…»
(10:45:10 PM) Gwen: Addison sighs with the relief as Raj arrives. "This man is going to be dealt with by my people."
(10:45:36 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Your wards should remain in place," Mike says after reverting from wolf form.
(10:46:27 PM) Lurker: "Would you like me to carry him back for you, or do you have people to transport him?" Raj asks casually, the unconscious Sylvan still over his shoulder.
(10:46:29 PM) Absrev: Walking back to the others, Elliot walked over to Addison. "…thanks for the advice."
(10:46:54 PM) Scantron: Satyana peers at the Sylvan. She's never gotten an opportunity to look at one up close before.
(10:47:28 PM) Alivi: Raine watches Addison and Elliot before turning back to the icepad and letting it vanish.
(10:47:47 PM) Gwen: Addison looks up at him and smiles a little. "You used to depend on that advice a whole lot." She takes his hand lightly. The evil Sylvan looks similar to Arisaeria…and yes, they do have pointed ears.
(10:49:59 PM) Scantron: "Hm." Satyana resumes giving Raj his personal space back.
(10:50:03 PM) Scantron: "I'm freezing."
(10:50:52 PM) Lurker: Raj looks to Arisaeria, then to his 'passenger'.
(10:51:09 PM) Gwen: "Leave him here," the Sylvan says.
(10:52:31 PM) Lurker: Raj shrugs, then carefully lays the Sylvan down on the ground in the snow, glancing to his shoulder, then nodding.
(10:53:17 PM) Absrev: "…still getting used to being back in the world."
(10:54:06 PM) Gwen: Addison nods. "It's okay." The Huntress taps his face with her foot. "Leave, Bureau Guardians…thank you for your help."
(10:54:37 PM) Alivi: Raine nods and bows a bit. "Thank you…" He smiles before looking towards the others.
(10:55:26 PM) Tox|Laptop: "Of course, Forest Guardians." Mike nods, turning to leave.
(10:56:55 PM) Gwen: And I am going to call plot there
