The Sun God's Trick

[6:46pm] Tox: Mike carries a bulky rifle into the lounge, sets a mat on the table, and starts stripping the rifle down.
[6:48pm] Gwen: Addison wanders into the lounge shortly there after, looking down at her phone.
[6:49pm] Alivi: Raine is in the lounge reading.
[6:49pm] Alivi: Or was…he seemed to have fallen asleep with viivi sleeping next to him, his book on his chest
[6:49pm] Tox: He looks up. "Oh, hey, Addison."
[6:52pm] Gwen: She glances up. "Hey boss." She pockets her phone and cracks her knucles.
[6:52pm] Gwen: *knuckles
[6:55pm] Tox: "What's up?"
[6:56pm] Gwen: "Not much, just woke up from a nap. You?"
[6:59pm] Tox: "About the same. Decided to clean my gun, on account of I haven't used it in a while."
[6:59pm] Magnolia: Mila wanders in, eyes going wide at the rifle.
[7:00pm] Tox:
[7:00pm] Gwen: Addison snorts and then laughs. She practically falls over.
[7:02pm] Alivi: Viivi wakes up and yawns and nudges Raine.
[7:02pm] Magnolia: "Nice boom stick."
[7:02pm] Magnolia: Mila wanders over, crashing on the couch and watching him clean
[7:03pm] Tox: "Thanks." Mike smiles, then returns to the task of cleaning the shit out of it.
[7:03pm] Balthazaar joined the chat room.
[7:04pm] Tox: Satisfied, he starts reassembling the weapon.
[7:04pm] Magnolia: If there is shit in your rifle I think you're using it wrong
[7:05pm] Tox: don't hate
[7:05pm] Gwen: Loudspeakers: "Team 2 to the Briefing Room. Team 2 to the Briefing Room."
[7:06pm] Lurker: Raj is already at the briefing room by the time the others arrive.
[7:06pm] Lurker: Because he's Raj.
[7:06pm] Tox: Mike slings his rifle. "Cool." He heads off.
[7:07pm] Gwen: Addison follows.
[7:07pm] Gwen: After poking Raine a bunch of times.
[7:07pm] Balthazaar: Charlie eventually arrives at the briefing room
[7:07pm] Alivi: Raine sighs and grumbles. "Stay Viivi…" He goes to the breifing room
[7:08pm] Gwen: The Director looks…confused as he looks over a file.
[7:09pm] Tox: Confusion's not good. "Boss?"
[7:09pm] Magnolia: Mila shows up in the Briefing room
[7:09pm] Gwen: Once the team has assembled. "A relic we've got downstairs has just turned up in an auction in Athens, Greece," he says with a sigh.
[7:10pm] Alivi: Raine tilts his head.
[7:10pm] Alivi: "….Does Eriko know?"
[7:10pm] Tox: "…How?"
[7:10pm] Gwen: "Yes, she is just as confused as I am." He opens a drawer and pulls out a cheap replica of the idol from Indiana Jones. "This was left in it's place."
[7:11pm] Alivi: "….wow…'
[7:11pm] Tox: "…Goddammit. We got a thief who thinks they're clever. What do the tapes show?"
[7:11pm] Gwen: Addison blinks.
[7:11pm] Lurker: "Probably nothing."
[7:12pm] Gwen: "This relic wasn't in a secured vault as it's one of the least dangerous things we have."
[7:12pm] Tox: "So we don't have- wait. What does it do?"
[7:12pm] Balthazaar: Charlie hopes they're not going to have to dress up again
[7:13pm] Gwen: "It's Socrates' cup. The cup I gave him…er…I mean….he had poison soup out of."
[7:13pm] Tox: Mike raises an eyebrow, but lets it pass. "So what's its effect?"
[7:13pm] Alivi: Raine sighs.
[7:14pm] Magnolia: "There are relics here that aren't in a secured vault?"
[7:15pm] Gwen: "It magnifies the effects of poison…but it's utterly useless in this day and age. None of today's poisons seem to….be recognized by it."
[7:15pm] Gwen: "And yes, there are. Relics in the possession of agents, for example, Mila."
[7:15pm] Tox: "…So someone with the ability to bypass our security systems breaks in and steals something completely useless?"
[7:16pm] Tox: "Instead of one of the more lucrative targets?"
[7:16pm] Lurker: "If it's being auctioned off, and someone stole it, I assume it's for nefarious purposes. Someone could be trying to sell it off to someone they /know/ would want it, lining it with a small bit of poison," Raj offers.
[7:16pm] Magnolia: "I emant other than those, unless whoever this is nabbed it off an agent."
[7:17pm] Balthazaar: "Unless they just steal this as practice before trying again another time."
[7:17pm] Gwen: "Raj and Mila raise good points. In order to find out, go to Athens."
[7:17pm] Tox: "Modern poisons aren't effective," Mike counters. He nods at Charlie. "There's a possibility. Testing our responses. /Or,/ they're taunting us. Or both."
[7:17pm] Alivi: "So it is on auction now?"
[7:18pm] Alivi: "Has it been bought?"
[7:18pm] Lurker: "Incase you've forgotten in my absence, Michael, not all of our enemies are entirely conventional." Raj smirks, then looks to the Director. "Quiet?"
[7:18pm] Tox: A darker possibility looms in Mike's mind. "Or they're taking a cue from Du Rose."
[7:19pm] Tox: "I assume rifles aren't on the dress code."
[7:19pm] Gwen: "Arsenic is very effective. As is cyanide." He sighs and looks to the team, taking his glasses of. "It's in the private vault of a fence that we've never heard of. His address is on the plane. Go there."
[7:19pm] Gwen: "And no rifles."
[7:20pm] Tox: "Right. I'll leave it on the plane."
[7:20pm] Alivi: Raine nods.
[7:20pm] Alivi: "Lets get this done and over with…"
[7:20pm] Tox: Mike shakes his head. "Let's go."
[7:20pm] Gwen: "I agree," Addison says.
[7:20pm] Balthazaar: Charlie nods and follows the others
[7:20pm] Tox: Mike heads off to the plane.
[7:21pm] Lurker: Raj gets this big /grin/ and heads out to pack his things and head to the plane. He's got a couple of bags.
[7:21pm] Magnolia: "No rifles…"
[7:21pm] Magnolia: Mila looks down. She'll never get to break out the big guns
[7:22pm] Lurker: "I don't have a rifle," Raj says calmly. "I have clothes and miscellaneous things to keep me amused."
[7:22pm] Balthazaar: Charlie looks at Mila sympathetically.
[7:23pm] Lurker: The walking tank casually tucks his bags to one side and sits with them, crossing his legs in his seat with his belt on and meditating.
[7:23pm] Gwen: Addison follows along, glancing at Mila. "Don't worry, there are bonkers combat missions too."
[7:23pm] Tox: "…A fence nobody's ever heard of, trafficking a Bureau relic?" Mike muses as he drives the group to the plane.
[7:24pm] Tox: "Trafficking in a mostly /useless/ relic," he amends.
[7:24pm] Lurker: "Well, you've certainly gotten more observant since our last mission, Michael." Raj says, eyes closed.
[7:24pm] Gwen: Addison blinks. "Maybe someone cheated the fence?"
[7:24pm] Alivi: Raine laughs.
[7:24pm] Magnolia: she nods at Addison, "Tell me if there's one that will require somebody be relieved of their kneecaps." she says flatly
[7:25pm] Gwen: "Will do."
[7:25pm] Tox: Mike chuckles. "Maybe. But….I can't help but remember Du Rose."
[7:25pm] Gwen: "This doesn't sound like Du Rose's work."
[7:25pm] Balthazaar: Charlie frowns a bit. He doesn't like the way Raj is talking to Mike, not picking up on the good humor
[7:25pm] Alivi: Raine shakes his head. "Doesnt sound like it at all…"
[7:26pm] Tox: Mike ignored Raj's jibe. "No, it's not his /work,/ but think of it. Du Rose was calling us out. Relying on the fact that we come running like Pavlov's dogs."
[7:26pm] Tox: "This theft is pretty out of the blue, going to a fence we haven't heard of…nothing's on the radar."
[7:26pm] Alivi: Raine sighs.
[7:26pm] Gwen: "He's not that bright. Du Rose isn't the puppet master type…all he does is make relics."
[7:27pm] Alivi: The plane takes off and goes into the air.
[7:27pm] Lurker: Raj takes in the information, matching it with what he knows already.
[7:27pm] Tox: "It worked," Mike points out.
[7:27pm] Alivi: "While he has some puppet master tendencies, I just don't think he'd put that much effort. He tends to like his own relics right?"
[7:27pm] Gwen: "Yes, but I doubt that was Du Rose, Mike. Something didn't fit."
[7:27pm] Tox: He sighs heavily. "No, I'm not saying Du Rose did this. I'm saying whoever /did/ might be calling us out."
[7:27pm] Gwen: "Oh, yes. Absolutely."
[7:27pm] Tox: "The same /way/ that Du Rose did."
[7:28pm] Tox: "There's also…." Mike hesitates.
[7:28pm] Gwen: Addison walks to the fridge and fetches herself a coke.
[7:28pm] Alivi: "also what?"
[7:28pm] Tox: He fiddles with his amulet.
[7:29pm] Alivi: Raine looks at Mike
[7:29pm] Balthazaar: Charlie holds onto the arm rests as tight as he can
[7:29pm] Tox: "Well….Athens, yeah? Basically the seat of Greek power for….ever?"
[7:30pm] Gwen: Addison glances to Mike. "It's also a great place for fencing stuff…the legal system there is a disaster."
[7:30pm] Alivi: "not to mention the relic would make sense going there Mike."
[7:31pm] Tox: Mike shakes his head. "Maybe."
[7:31pm] Tox: "Maybe i'm jus' paranoid."
[7:31pm] Gwen: Addison sighs and takes a sip of her drink.
[7:31pm] Lurker: Raj is still meditating on the plane.
[7:31pm] Tox: "Still…the last time we were called out like this, shit almost went down. Stay alert."
[7:33pm] Magnolia: Mila brushes back some hair, "Shit is going to go down, I don't think that is up for debate."
[7:33pm] Lurker: "Then it's a good thing you have me here, yes?"
[7:33pm] Balthazaar: Charlie looks to be in danger of ripping the arms off his seat. He hates flying
[7:34pm] Alivi: Addison you get a funny feeling.
[7:34pm] Magnolia: "This wouldn't occur if they didn't want us showing up. I would hazard a guess that whoever orchestrated this is also directly responsible for our recon department knowing about this fence at all."
[7:34pm] Tox: "Best hope you haven't gotten rusty, Raj."
[7:34pm] Lurker: "Michael I could still take you down before you could say 'moon'."
[7:34pm] Magnolia: "This is a trap."
[7:34pm] Lurker: "Only now I can probably do it faster."
[7:34pm] Tox: "Bullshit."
[7:35pm] Gwen: Addison rubs her eyes and takes another drink of coke.
[7:35pm] Tox: "Mila, yeah. Well. Maybe not a trap per se, but they want us there."
[7:35pm] Balthazaar: "Then they are stupid."
[7:35pm] Lurker: "Incredibly."
[7:36pm] Magnolia: "If they just want us there it is for a reason. They may not be stupid."
[7:37pm] Magnolia: she looks at the group, "It would take an idiot to go into an unknown situation against an unknown enemy of apparently impressive power with the assumption that they are stupid."
[7:37pm] Gwen: Addison glances out the window and blinks. "Wow…I didn't realize…Greece was this pretty."
[7:37pm] Lurker: "Welcome to Team 2."
[7:37pm] Tox: "It's a beautiful place.
[7:37pm] Tox: "
[7:37pm] Alivi: Raine nods.
[7:37pm] Alivi: "I've never been here but it is sure fun to see a new place."
[7:37pm] Gwen: She blinks a few times and then looks to Mike and Raine, nodding. "Yeah. Very." She adjusts her glasses.
[7:37pm] Alivi: "Charlie, isn't the water pretty?"
[7:38pm] Magnolia: "…I hope you are joking."
[7:38pm] Balthazaar: "Yes, very nice."
[7:38pm] Lurker: "I remember fighting through a museum here," Raj says with a sigh. "Good times. Priceless artifacts shattering around me."
[7:38pm] Tox: "Yes, yes, Raj, you are a bull in a china shop, a whirling tornado of senseless mayhem."
[7:39pm] Alivi: Raine winces, "You /broke/ them?"
[7:39pm] Alivi: The plane begins to go down to land.
[7:39pm] Lurker: "Actually I was taking cover and there were a bunch of guys with 74s that were shooting everything." Raj rolls his eyes. "One must always strive to remember: low-capacity magazines on full auto do not make for good suppressive fire."
[7:40pm] Lurker: "I took my shots carefully: point blank range."
[7:40pm] Gwen: Addison takes another sip of her drink, sitting down as the plane lands.
[7:40pm] Alivi: The plane pulls to a stop. time for the mission to go underway/
[7:41pm] Magnolia: Mila gets up, "Are we taking the usual transport?"
[7:41pm] Balthazaar: Charlie gets up the second the plane stops
[7:41pm] Tox: "Alright, time to saddle up. Hopefully it's as simple as knocking the fence over and taking it back. Realistically, I predict three orders more complexity."
[7:41pm] Tox: Mike grabs the address and makes for the Rover.
[7:41pm] Gwen: Addison follows Mike quietly.
[7:41pm] Lurker: Raj grabs his bags, getting ready. "Shall I change into something more classy, or stay the way I am?" He's in a black long-sleeved under-armor shirt and jeans.
[7:42pm] Tox: "You're probably good, Raj."
[7:43pm] Balthazaar: Charlie gets in the back seat of the rover, not asking if he is allowed to drive this time.
[7:43pm] Tox: Mike turns to look back and nearly bumps into Addison. "Whoa. Sorry. …You alright?"
[7:43pm] Lurker: Raj nods and heads to pack his things into the back again.
[7:43pm] Alivi: Raine follows
[7:43pm] Lurker: They take up quite a fair amount of space. He may be bringing his armor along incase he needs it.
[7:43pm] Gwen: "Yeah, sorry. I didn't sleep well last night. I'm hoping the pop will perk me up."
[7:44pm] Tox: "Cool." Mike hops into the Rover.
[7:45pm] Magnolia: Mila gets in, "Handguns are permissible on this trip, correct?"
[7:45pm] Magnolia: mission*
[7:45pm] Tox: "Yeah. Keep the holsters under a jacket if possible. No sense spooking people."'
[7:46pm] Tox: "…Before you have to, at any rate."
[7:46pm] Lurker: "You have me, perhaps I should stay in the car."
[7:46pm] Balthazaar: Charlie hunches up in the car, trying to stop his head hitting the roof
[7:46pm] Tox: "Har har, you spooky asshole. Shut up and sit back."
[7:47pm] Tox: Mike pulls off.
[7:47pm] Gwen: Addison rolls her eyes. "The testosterone in this car is really turning me on," her voice dripping with sarcasm.
[7:47pm] Magnolia: Mila pulls her hands away from her, and looks at Mike
[7:47pm] Alivi: Raine sighs. "Where is Zoe, she on a date?"
[7:47pm] Magnolia: "You see a gun anywhere on me?"
[7:47pm] Gwen: "Not sure, Raine. She didn't say."
[7:48pm] Tox: Mike looks back, giving her a civilian's eye.
[7:48pm] Balthazaar: "I don't like not working with Zoe."
[7:48pm] Magnolia: she looks free of firearms, from a civilian's perspective. If mike is very meticulous in his observations, he might note a curious curve or lump, but nothing that would tip off anyone
[7:48pm] Lurker: "Me next." Raj says, excitedly. "Michael, do I look like I possess a harmful weapon?"
[7:48pm] Magnolia: anyone who wasn't very well trained
[7:49pm] Gwen: "Raj, you are a harmful weapon."
[7:49pm] Tox: Mike nods. "You're good, Mila. Joe Q Public wouldn't know shit."
[7:49pm] Lurker: "Thank you, Addi," he says with general endearment. "That means a lot~"
[7:50pm] Alivi: "So how far is it?"
[7:50pm] Balthazaar: Charlie doesn't even own a gun, but there is a rather old hunting knife at his hip
[7:50pm] Tox: "Shouldn't be too much longer." Mike puts his foot down a little harder.
[7:52pm] Gwen left the chat room. (Quit: My MacBook has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
[7:53pm] Magnolia left the chat room. (Quit: ajax IRC Client)
[7:53pm] Alivi: Raine braces himself
[7:54pm] Magnobile joined the chat room.
[7:54pm] iGwen joined the chat room.
[7:54pm] iGwen was promoted to half-operator by ChanServ.
[7:55pm] Tox: The Rover goes faster, towards their destination.
[7:55pm] Balthazaar: Vroom Vroom
[7:56pm] Magnobile: share the road damn it
[7:57pm] Balthazaar: Charlie opens his window a bit for some fresh air
[7:57pm] Alivi: They manage to arrive, in one piece
[7:57pm] Alivi: There is an office building
[7:57pm] Tox: "Somewhat respectable," Mike observes as he pulls into the lot. How far out of town are they?
[7:58pm] iGwen: Addison hops out of the car and pulls her phone out of her pocket. "Looks perfectly nondescript."
[7:58pm] Tox: Mike gets out, too. "Too nondescript," Mike agrees.
[7:58pm] Balthazaar: Charlie gets out and stretches
[7:59pm] iGwen: "No such thing, boss man. Not when you're a white collar criminal."
[7:59pm] Lurker: Raj sneaks a hand into the back of the rover to fiddle about with a bag, drawing out two magazines, his P99, and a casual coat, tucking them into his coat. He looks pretty average.
[7:59pm] Magnobile: "It doesn't have to be too nondescript. we already knoe the trap's here."
[7:59pm] Tox: "No, I mean, it's so nondescript that it stands out."
[8:00pm] iGwen: "To you maybe." Addison wanders ahead.
[8:00pm] Tox: Mike follows behind.
[8:00pm] Lurker: "How about I wait out here with the rover, and if anything goes south, I can come in and assist?"
[8:01pm] Tox: "That's actually not a bad idea. Plus, you can play rear lookout in case anyone wants to insert behind us."
[8:01pm] Lurker: "Wow, innuendo-filled as always, Michael. Do you kiss your mate with that mouth?"
[8:01pm] Alivi: "I can scout it out if you want…"
[8:02pm] Tox: "Raj, I will put you in a deep dark hole where nobody can find you."
[8:02pm] iGwen: Addison laughs happily. "Raine…when inside…can you check the office we're supposed to go in?"
[8:02pm] Balthazaar: "I don't get it…"
[8:03pm] Alivi: Raine nods happily.
[8:03pm] Alivi: "Got it."
[8:03pm] iGwen: "If it is a trap…your snow won't mind getting exploded."
[8:04pm] Lurker: "Already attempted," Raj says casually to Mike. "Didn't work then."
[8:04pm] Magnobile: "Alright. Positions ready, I suppose we should get going."
[8:04pm] Alivi: "It shall have a painless death." Raine says jokingly.
[8:04pm] Tox: "Let's go." Mike leads the group.
[8:04pm] iGwen: Addison nods and opens the front door of the office
[8:05pm] Lurker: Raj heads out and hangs out near the driver's side door, like he's waiting for the group to return.
[8:05pm] Magnolia joined the chat room.
[8:05pm] Tox: I think at this point I would like to activate Avatar of Hircine.
[8:06pm] Alivi: activated
[8:06pm] Alivi: Raine follows Addison
[8:06pm] Balthazaar: Charlie follows
[8:07pm] Tox: Mike's third man in, sweeping the office with a practiced eye.
[8:07pm] iGwen: Addison goes looking for the office they need
[8:08pm] Alivi: Raine prepares the ice and snow
[8:08pm] Alivi: d20
[8:08pm] Quidmore: Alivi: d20=15 (15)
[8:08pm] Alivi: an ice pad materializes in his hands and the temperature around him drops.
[8:08pm] Magnolia: Mila follows in, waiting for Raine to get back
[8:08pm] Alivi: He looks at Addison
[8:09pm] iGwen: "I think this one is it. " She points to a door. "What's inside Raine."
[8:10pm] Tox: Mike pushes his mind towards the office, sweeping it (and the building generally) for supernatural presences.
[8:10pm] Alivi: Raine nods.
[8:10pm] Alivi: There is nothing Mike.
[8:10pm] Alivi: Raine sends in the snow crystals and looks at the image on the ice.
[8:10pm] Alivi: He blinks.
[8:10pm] Tox: "…I don't think it's here. Or it's being masked."
[8:10pm] Balthazaar: Charlie follows along, waiting for someone to tell him what to do
[8:11pm] Tox: Mike looks over at the pad.
[8:11pm] Alivi: Its an empty office and near the door is a box. That is it.
[8:11pm] Tox: "…"
[8:11pm] Alivi: "Huh."
[8:11pm] iGwen left the chat room. (Quit: Leaving)
[8:11pm] Tox: "Do we draw straws to see who opens it, or…?"
[8:12pm] Magnolia: "We may has veen tricked."
[8:12pm] Alivi: "I can open it."
[8:12pm] Alivi: Raine says.
[8:13pm] Tox: "You sure, Raine?"
[8:13pm] Tox: "Can we back off and have you do one of those bomb robot numbers, opening it remotely?"
[8:14pm] Alivi: "…I can just freeze the lock and break it."
[8:14pm] Tox: "Oh, I meant the box."
[8:14pm] Tox: "Sorry."
[8:14pm] Tox: "The door lock, sounds good."
[8:15pm] Balthazaar: "Or I could kick it in if you wanted
[8:15pm] Balthazaar: ."
[8:15pm] Alivi: "Oh the box? Hm…."
[8:15pm] Alivi: "I can just open it."
[8:16pm] Tox: "You sure? You'll be in the line of fire if it's trapped."
[8:17pm] Magnolia: «What was the pretense for us being here, again. Not the real pretense, the 'if anyone asks' pretense.»
[8:18pm] Tox: «Uh, usually it amounts to "flash your Pass and make up shit." It works.»
[8:19pm] Tox: «Raj, how's it looking outside?»
[8:20pm] iGwen joined the chat room.
[8:20pm] iGwen was promoted to half-operator by ChanServ.
[8:20pm] Magnolia: «Then somebody walk in. If anything goes down we open fire, yah?»
[8:20pm] Alivi: "So then,"
[8:21pm] Balthazaar: «I can do that, if we want.»
[8:21pm] Tox: "Raine, freeze it, please."
[8:22pm] Alivi: Raine nods. He focuses
[8:22pm] Alivi: d20
[8:22pm] Quidmore: Alivi: d20=15 (15)
[8:22pm] Alivi: There frost builds around the metal fixings on the door and there is a snap.
[8:22pm] Lurker: d20 Keeping an ear and eye out
[8:22pm] Quidmore: Lurker: Keeping an ear and eye out: d20=16 (16)
[8:22pm] Alivi: Nothing.
[8:22pm] Alivi: Just people doing their thing.
[8:22pm] Alivi: Raine opens the door and enters.
[8:22pm] Tox: "Good work, Raine."
[8:22pm] Alivi: "Thanks."
[8:23pm] Magnolia: Mila looks into the room
[8:23pm] Magnolia: from outside
[8:24pm] Tox: Mike steps inside and nudges the box with his foot. About how heavy does it seem?
[8:24pm] iGwen: Addison follows Raine inside.
[8:24pm] Alivi: Not very.
[8:25pm] Balthazaar: Charlie waits by the door, keeping an eye out for stuff
[8:25pm] Tox: Heavy enough to contain the cup they're after?
[8:25pm] Tox: "Huhn. Box is kinda….light."
[8:25pm] iGwen: "Well open it."
[8:26pm] Tox: "Alright." Mike kneels down and carefully opens the box.
[8:26pm] Alivi: The box has some strange packaging but inside is the cup.
[8:26pm] Alivi: Raine raises an eyebrow.
[8:26pm] Tox: "…."
[8:27pm] Tox: Mike inspects the packaging. How is it strange?
[8:27pm] Tox: "I, uh, can't say I like this at all."
[8:27pm] Alivi: It seems fluffly.
[8:27pm] Tox: Fluffy? The player doesn't follow.
[8:28pm] Alivi: the packaging is fluffy.
[8:28pm] Magnolia: «That's because it's a trap.» Mila stays outside the room, she moves against the wall, and scans back and forth down the hallways «Raj, things still look okay out there? No suspicious characters?»
[8:28pm] Lurker: d20 Checking again
[8:28pm] Quidmore: Lurker: Checking again: d20=14 (14)
[8:29pm] Alivi: still nothing weird, suspicious, out of the ordinary…wait! There is a strange car outside an office building oh wait that is just you.
[8:29pm] Tox: Mike takes the cup, standing back up, senses sweeping the office building.
[8:29pm] Lurker: «If there was anything, I'd let you all know immediately.»
[8:29pm] Alivi: Nothing Mike, now you can sense the cup.
[8:29pm] Tox: «Understood. We've got the package, regrouping and heading out.»
[8:30pm] Tox: "….Wait a second."
[8:30pm] Tox: He shakes his head. "This packaging blocks supernatural senses. Better take it, too."
[8:30pm] Tox: Mike picks up the packaging as well.
[8:30pm] Balthazaar: "Maybe there is more…"
[8:30pm] Alivi: Raine stretches.
[8:30pm] Alivi: "So….now what?"
[8:31pm] Magnolia: "We either go home, or conduct a full sweep of the building. How many floors are there?"
[8:31pm] Tox: "…Well, we can search the rest of the office building, see if there's anything else hidden to surprise us, or we can just call it done."
[8:31pm] Alivi: "I think 6 floors, I can sweep it if you want… or we can split up…"
[8:32pm] Balthazaar: "I think we should search."
[8:32pm] Alivi: Raine nods.
[8:32pm] Tox: "I might just be in full paranoia mode, but I'm in favor of the full sweep. Raine, if you could, that'd be great."
[8:32pm] iGwen: "Raine can do a preliminary search." At this point Addison is searching telepathically
[8:32pm] Tox: "Also, never split the party." Mike grins.
[8:32pm] Alivi: Raine nods.
[8:33pm] Alivi: He activates his relic and his title
[8:34pm] Alivi: The temperature drops substantially and snow crystals and ice form around him and scatter throughout the building, More ice slates appear hovering. Each displaying an image of a floor.
[8:34pm] iGwen: 1d20
[8:34pm] Quidmore: iGwen: 1d20=7 (7)
[8:34pm] Tox: Mike does his best to multitask to all the slates, tracking each of them.
[8:34pm] Alivi: Addison you dont hurt. But you dont sense anything.
[8:35pm] iGwen: Addison opens her eyes. "I don't sense any minds…"
[8:35pm] Alivi: Mike, and anyone else paying attention to the slates notice there is nothing. It is an empty building.
[8:35pm] Tox: "…This building is /too/ empty."
[8:35pm] Lurker: Raj attempts to bum a smoke off a passerby to help add to his 'casual' appearance.
[8:35pm] iGwen: "That's why this fence chose it."
[8:36pm] Magnolia: "There was no fance though."
[8:36pm] iGwen: "Are we sure of that?"
[8:36pm] Alivi: He gets one.
[8:36pm] Magnolia: "Like I said. Our information was likely proveded to recon by the same person who stole the artifact."
[8:36pm] Magnolia: "Do you see an auction?"
[8:36pm] Magnolia: she looks at Addison
[8:36pm] Alivi: Raine sighs.
[8:37pm] Tox: Mike shivers, and it's not from the cold. "…People, sing out if you see anything that looks like this." Mike indicates the packaging he's holding."
[8:37pm] Tox: *-"
[8:37pm] Lurker: Raj smokes the cigarette and looks like a pretty cool cat who's waiting for someone outside of the building. Except not very cool, and probably a bit shady.
[8:37pm] Alivi: "Im getting nothing Mike, just normal office stuff."
[8:38pm] Alivi: The man who Raj bummed a cigeratte off walks away.
[8:38pm] Lurker: «Updates, folks?»
[8:39pm] Tox: Mike chews the inside of his cheek. "Do we do a manual sweep or not? Decisions, people."
[8:39pm] Tox: «Uh, initial sweep
[8:39pm] Balthazaar: "I'm happy to sweep."
[8:39pm] Tox: «Uh, initial sweep's negative for anything else. We're debating whether to do a manual sweep. How about your end?»
[8:39pm] Lurker: «Takin' pretty long for an initial sweep. I thought Raine was going to use his icepad to check things out."
[8:39pm] Lurker: [[ redact ]]
[8:40pm] Magnolia: "Let's go."
[8:40pm] Lurker: «Still nothing. Got a smoke. Not finding anything inside?»
[8:40pm] Magnolia: "Manual sweep. Check all the rooms. How many offices per floor? we should turn them upside down."
[8:40pm] Tox: «Negative, but there's stuff at play that's jamming my senses.»
[8:40pm] Tox: "Alright. We move as a group, starting from the top floor."
[8:40pm] iGwen: Addison looks around nervously."
[8:41pm] Tox: "Quick, but thorough. The less time we're here, the better."
[8:41pm] Balthazaar: Charlie shrugs
[8:42pm] Lurker: «Keep an eye out for identifying marks or patterns on the walls, ceiling, and floors. I went in on a place that had a false basement. Pressure plates disguised and marked by seals on the floor.»
[8:42pm] Tox: «Got it. Thanks for the advice.» Mike turns another eye on the office they're in, taking Raj's advice into account.
[8:43pm] Alivi: Raine nods and looks around. But nothing stands out. Its boring, average, nothing of note
[8:43pm] Balthazaar: Charlie manages to psychicly grunt a response
[8:44pm] Tox: "Alright. Top down sweep." «Raj, if we flush anyone out when we do our sweep, take them down /politely./ No killing or maiming until we know what to do with them.»
[8:45pm] Lurker: «You take all my fun away, Michael.»
[8:45pm] Tox: «Hey. If it turns out they need killing, by all means.»
[8:46pm] iGwen left the chat room. (Client exited)
[8:47pm] iGwen joined the chat room.
[8:47pm] iGwen was promoted to half-operator by ChanServ.
[8:49pm] Alivi: «No Killing»
[8:50pm] Tox: «You don't understand, if Raj doesn't fill his quota of murder, it gets ugly.»
[8:50pm] Tox: «Well, uglier,» he amends.
[8:51pm] Balthazaar: «If I have to resist, so should everyone…»
[8:51pm] Alivi: «We all should resist regardless. The BSA doesn't kill unless there is no choice.»
[8:52pm] Tox: Mike leads his little band of men to the top floor.
[8:52pm] Lurker: «I don't kill unless I have to. I do, however break, maim, injure, and subdue.»
[8:53pm] Alivi: «Can we please not use violence unless we have to??» Raine is getting irritated
[8:53pm] Magnolia: "Shut up, let's just get to the top floor. You are all giving me a headache."
[8:53pm] Magnolia: "Who'll take point?"
[8:53pm] iGwen: «Cut the noise…it's all in my head.»
[8:53pm] Tox: "I'm usually point man."
[8:53pm] Balthazaar: Charlie goes along with the group
[8:54pm] Alivi: "We already scouted it. There was no one here that I could see…."
[8:54pm] Tox: "It never hurts to be thorough. The ice scouting was to give us an idea of where to target."
[8:55pm] Alivi: "yea"
[8:56pm] Tox: Mike leads the band through the office building, poking his head in and sweeping each office room.
[8:57pm] Alivi: And they find nothing out of the oridinary
[8:58pm] iGwen: Addison sighs.
[8:58pm] Magnolia: "…THat's the last of it."
[8:58pm] Tox: «Alright, Raj, sweep complete. Nothing. We're regrouping and heading out.»
[8:59pm] Lurker: «Gotcha.» Raj puts out the cigarette and gives one final sweep over to see if he's missed anything.
[8:59pm] Lurker: d20
[8:59pm] Quidmore: Lurker: d20=13 (13)
[9:00pm] Alivi: Nothing
[9:00pm] Alivi: Raine sighs.
[9:00pm] Balthazaar: Charlie looks at Raine. "You okay?"
[9:01pm] Tox: Mike nods. "Alright. Back home. Don't get complacent."
[9:01pm] Alivi: "Just annoyed…"
[9:01pm] Tox: Mike closes his eyes briefly, centers himself, then leads the Merry People back outside, across the pad.
[9:01pm] Magnolia: Mila shifts on her feet as she heads for the door, "This… was strange."
[9:02pm] Alivi: "If we are all the way out here, can I at least explore or something?"
[9:02pm] Balthazaar: "Can I explore too?"
[9:02pm] Alivi: "Its annoying just….having to go straight back home. Coming down here for jack-all."
[9:03pm] Tox: "Hey, I'm right there with you. But I'm /relieved/ we didn't find anything out of the ordinary."
[9:03pm] Tox: "No news is good news, and all that."
[9:03pm] Alivi: "Same, but at the same time…. it is troublesome."
[9:03pm] iGwen: Addison walks to the window and looks around.
[9:03pm] Lurker: "If it was a trap, maybe we /should/ get back, because we'll have left the Bureau with a couple less agents than normal."
[9:04pm] Tox: "Sightseeing's gonna have to wait, I'm sorry. We need to get back to base. Pile in."
[9:05pm] Lurker: Raj gets in the back again
[9:05pm] Magnolia: Mila hops in.
[9:05pm] Balthazaar: Charlie frowns and climbs in
[9:05pm] Tox: "Hop in, Addison. Staring at the office building isn't gonna make it give up its secrets."
[9:06pm] Alivi: Raj and Mike mdef
[9:06pm] Tox: 1d20 !!
[9:06pm] Quidmore: Tox: !!: 1d20=15 (15)
[9:06pm] iGwen: "I'm staying here. Sightseeing sounds good." Something is not right with her. She sounds…upset.
[9:07pm] Tox: "Addison, hop in."
[9:07pm] Alivi: "mmm….you sure?"
[9:07pm] Lurker: 1d20
[9:07pm] Quidmore: Lurker: 1d20=7 (7)
[9:07pm] Tox: "…Addison, are you good?"
[9:07pm] Lurker: Raj looks around, then frowns.
[9:07pm] Balthazaar: "Addison, are you alright?"
[9:08pm] Magnolia: Mila raises a brow at Addison, and looks to Mike
[9:08pm] Tox: "Raj, report."
[9:08pm] Tox: Mike's stance stiffens just a little.
[9:08pm] Lurker: "I'm hearing a much too cheery voice that doesn't belong to anyone in the car."
[9:08pm] Lurker: "Or standing outside of it."
[9:08pm] Alivi: Hermes appears
[9:08pm] Tox: "Where?"
[9:08pm] Tox: Mike nearly jumps out of his skin.
[9:08pm] iGwen: Addison blinks. "This should have worked.."
[9:08pm] Alivi: "Stick in the mud, stick in the muddddd"
[9:09pm] Alivi: He waves at Raj
[9:09pm] Tox: "Jesus, Hermes. Are you /trying/ to give me a heart attack?"
[9:09pm] Alivi: "Sup?"
[9:09pm] Balthazaar: Charlie sees Hermes and gets out of the car, frowning
[9:09pm] Alivi: He laughs, "Seems like an easy thing to do Michael"
[9:09pm] Magnolia: Mila looks at Hermes, her hand is instantly on her gun
[9:09pm] Lurker: "Yes, I am a stick in the mud," Raj says with a smirk, getting out of the car, crossing his arms.
[9:09pm] Magnolia: "…Who's this?"
[9:09pm] Tox: "Okay, /conceded./"
[9:09pm] Lurker: "A friend."
[9:10pm] Balthazaar: Charlie disagrees, he doesn't like Hermes
[9:10pm] Tox: Mike looks over at Hermes coolly. "So what can we do for the god of messengers?"
[9:10pm] Magnolia: "Did you steal the artifact?" she addresses Hermes directly."
[9:10pm] Alivi: "You are in Greece, and nope I didn't. But they totally have my props. Very good technicque."
[9:10pm] iGwen: Addison looks to Hermes. "Where is he!?"
[9:10pm] Tox: Mike frowns. "Addison?"
[9:10pm] Alivi: "ANYWAYS, you are in Greece, the city of art and foundations. I couldn't help but overhear that you guys were trying to leave."
[9:11pm] Alivi: "Addison, Blake is back in London."
[9:11pm] Magnolia: "Greece isn't a city."
[9:11pm] Alivi: "Explore a bit, live a bit, you might find more than you came to find. And yes, But Athens has a lot to offer. I think you should explore."
[9:12pm] Balthazaar: Charlie walks closer to Hermes. He wants to hit him, which probably shows.
[9:12pm] Magnolia: She sighs, looking to Mike again. her eyes suddenly go wide
[9:12pm] Tox: Mike shifts his gaze to Hermes. "We completed our mission. Under the circumstances I'm not exactly comfortable keeping assets in the field, on business, longer than necessary. You understand."
[9:12pm] Lurker: "Hermes," Raj says calmly. "Last time I was in Athens, if you pay attention to the not-news, you'll have likely heard that one of the museums lost quite a bit of artifacts in a 'terrorist attack'. Are you trying to infer that I should once again go and make sure there are no terrorists?"
[9:12pm] Tox: "Mila?" He cuts himself off at "necessary."
[9:13pm] Alivi: "Nah, just enjoy. And try to not ruin things."
[9:13pm] iGwen: Addison scowls and climbs back into the car, slamming the door."
[9:14pm] Alivi: "Try some food. You won't find what you wish in London."
[9:14pm] Tox: "Hermes. Our job's done, and we're headed back to base. Sightseeing can come /later./"
[9:14pm] Magnolia: "…There is probably good food here, Mike."
[9:14pm] Alivi: "Mike seriously can't we just explore? If you want to you can go back…"
[9:14pm] Alivi: Raine rubs the back of his neck.
[9:16pm] Lurker: Raj sighs. "So you're saying what we're looking for requires us to be tourists. I don't make a very good tourist."
[9:16pm] iGwen: Addison gets back out of the car. "We're going to the acropolis
[9:16pm] iGwen left the chat room. (Quit: Leaving)
[9:16pm] Tox: Mike looks from Raine, to Hermes, to the rover that Addison just stormed into. "If we wished to leave, would you hinder us, Herm-" Mike looks at Addison, "The Acropolis? Why?"
[9:16pm] Alivi: Hermes shakes his head.
[9:17pm] Alivi: "My goodness, you guys are just so business oriented."
[9:17pm] Alivi: "Especially you Raj, we used to do tons of stuff together."
[9:17pm] Alivi: "Ah well…"
[9:17pm] Gwen joined the chat room.
[9:17pm] Gwen was promoted to half-operator by ChanServ.
[9:18pm] Lurker: "It's taking longer to get up from being killed. Being business oriented tends to keep me from spending a couple of days under."
[9:18pm] Balthazaar: Charlie stands around, irritated
[9:19pm] Tox: "Addison, why are we going to the Acropolis?"
[9:19pm] Alivi: Raine seems irritated too.
[9:20pm] Gwen: "Because we are."
[9:20pm] Tox: "I don't mind the detour if it's business-related, but please explain why."
[9:21pm] Gwen: "I can't, Mike. Don't you think if I could explain why, I fucking would?"
[9:21pm] Lurker: "Get in the rover," Raj says simply, getting into the passenger seat. "Addi? Should I break out the armor?"
[9:21pm] Tox: Mike nods. "Conceded. Something, some feeling is telling you we have to go to the Acropolis?"
[9:21pm] Gwen: "I. Can't. Tell. You. Why. Mike."
[9:22pm] Magnolia: Mila rubs her temples
[9:23pm] Alivi: Raine just sighs. "Well lets go."
[9:23pm] Alivi: He gets in the car.
[9:23pm] Tox: Mike sets his teeth, glancing to Hermes. "Fine. To the Acropolis we go. Gear up."
[9:23pm] Alivi: Hermes waves. "Have a wonderful trip~" He vanishes
[9:23pm] Lurker: "I'll gear up when I get there."
[9:23pm] Tox: Mike slips back into the driver's seat.
[9:23pm] Magnolia: Mila is still in the car, she looks to Hermes
[9:23pm] Balthazaar: Charlie gets in the car
[9:23pm] Magnolia: as he vanishes
[9:23pm] Magnolia: "I don't like this. I don't like this at all
[9:23pm] Tox: "I hate that guy sometimes."
[9:23pm] Gwen: Addison gets into the car and crosses her arms like an angry child
[9:24pm] Tox: "Mila, that's why I'm ordering us to gear up. Put /all/ your party wear on, ladies and gentlemen." Mike starts off, pulling up directions from the GPS.
[9:24pm] Tox: "Addison, what's wrong?"
[9:24pm] Gwen: "I can't tell you."
[9:25pm] Tox: Mike thumps his palm against the steering wheel. "God dammit."
[9:25pm] Alivi: Raine rolls his eyes.
[9:26pm] Lurker: Raj takes his pistol out of his jacket and glances back. "Won't be needing this…"
[9:27pm] Tox: Mike glances in the rearview. "Go bigger."
[9:27pm] Lurker: Raj tucks the pistol away and glances back at his bags. "I thought you'd never ask."
[9:27pm] Balthazaar: Charlie simply rides in the car quietly.
[9:28pm] Tox: "Grab the SCAR-H while you're back there."
[9:28pm] Magnolia: Mila draws her weapon, she mutters, quietly "I don't see why our operation is being diverted by a pouting woman child."
[9:28pm] Tox: "Because this is a pouting woman-child who's in the grip of things greater than any of us."
[9:29pm] Tox: "And we're just fuckin' along for the ride."
[9:29pm] Lurker: "I'm not suiting up until we get there. I need room."
[9:29pm] Gwen: Addison clenches her teeth, hiding her face.
[9:29pm] Balthazaar: Charlie looks at Mila. "Because she is family."
[9:29pm] Alivi: "Don't insult her Mila."
[9:29pm] Alivi: "We'd do the same for you."
[9:30pm] Tox: To note, Mike wasn't repeating Mila's words to insult Addison.
[9:30pm] Tox: Mike accelerates to a little over the speed limit.
[9:30pm] Magnolia: Mila sighs
[9:30pm] Tox: Not enough to make a cop pull his radar gun, but.
[9:32pm] Tox: Mike blows out a breath and looks over at Addison. "It'll be alright. Okay?"
[9:33pm] Alivi: And they arrive there!
[9:33pm] Alivi: The acropolois looms overhead.
[9:34pm] Tox: Mike turns off the engine, surveying the landscape ahead, sweeping ahead with his mind.
[9:34pm] Lurker: Raj gets out of the Rover and moves around back, pulling his two bags out. "Get your own SCAR, Mike," he says casually, unzipping his large bags and pulling out a rather bulky case from the bottom of one. He pulls out bits of his body armor as well, strapping it on. He leaves the helmet off for now.
[9:35pm] Tox: "You're an asshole," he replies absently.
[9:35pm] Balthazaar: Charlie gets out, having moved from irritated to pissed off
[9:36pm] Gwen: Addison steps out and looks up at it. "Wow…"
[9:36pm] Lurker: "I am." He unlatches the bulky case and opens it, revealing his 21E. He glances up at Addison.
[9:36pm] Tox: He steps out as well, still peering ahead. "It /is/ beautiful."
[9:36pm] Lurker: "Are we still going loud?"
[9:37pm] Gwen: "Give me give a few minutes." She head up the stairs.
[9:37pm] Tox: "Yes. Shoot up no more of the Acropolis than is absolutely neces- Addison!"
[9:37pm] Tox: Mike /had/ been going to the van to get his rifle, but he steps off after her instead.
[9:37pm] Magnolia: Mila gets out, looking up the stairs, waiting bacl
[9:38pm] Balthazaar: Concerned, Charlie goes after Mike and Addison.
[9:38pm] Alivi: Addison you see the man you saw at the old farm with Blake and Samatha
[9:38pm] Alivi: Raine follows.
[9:39pm] Lurker: Raj pulls the pieces out and assembles the 21E in record time, grabbing two spare boxes and looks to Mila. "Would you mind strapping these to my back?" he asks, slotting a double-drum mag into the gun.
[9:39pm] Gwen: Addison stops and blinks and then heads up towards the man.
[9:39pm] Tox: Mike follows behind, of course. His weapons are still concealed under his jacket. No time to prepare.
[9:40pm] Alivi: "I told you….I wanted to meet alone before the others came."
[9:40pm] Alivi: "This way I could break it to you without you freaking out in front of the others."
[9:41pm] Magnolia: "It would be my pleasure."
[9:41pm] Magnolia: she takes them, attaching them to Raj's abck
[9:41pm] Magnolia: back*
[9:41pm] Tox: Mike draws to a stop a few feet back from Addison.
[9:41pm] Tox: Had drawn.
[9:41pm] Lurker: Raj stands, looking up ahead. «Michael, what's the situation here? Did I just make myself look very foolish?»
[9:42pm] Alivi: Mike there is an older looking man addressing the group.
[9:42pm] Alivi: "I would expect you, Michael Weyland, to know better than this. But it seems when it applied to you, it was different." He chuckles.
[9:42pm] Tox: «Negative. Stand fast.» Mike looks over the older man.
[9:42pm] Gwen: Addison is stunned speeches. "You're…not Ms. Turner's neighbour….or at least…you're not just Ms. Turner's neighbour." She adjusts her glasses.
[9:42pm] Tox: "You know who I am. Care to level the playing field?"
[9:43pm] Tox: The question was casual. Mike laces his hands behind his back, for want of somewhere to put the,.
[9:43pm] Alivi: "Of course."
[9:43pm] Alivi: A golden light swirls around him and appears.
[9:44pm] Lurker: Raj does not take the safety off his weapon, he's just waiting.
[9:44pm] Alivi: "I am the sun God Apollo."
[9:44pm] Alivi: He grins.
[9:44pm] Balthazaar: Charlie stops beside Mike, frowning.
[9:44pm] Alivi: "Stop frowning Charlie, it looks bad."
[9:45pm] Gwen: Addison's jaw drops.
[9:45pm] Alivi: "Now then,"
[9:45pm] Alivi: "Can we have some "Privacy" Please, People."
[9:46pm] Tox: Mike looks at the man's features. He nods. "We've been consorting with many Gods as of late, it would seem. We are honored to be in Your presence."
[9:46pm] Balthazaar: Charlie stops himself from snarling at the god and continues to frown
[9:46pm] Lurker: Raj sighs and unloads the HK 21E, starting to put his things away.
[9:47pm] Alivi: "Anyways, unless you wanna be here. I mean fine, it is her decision."
[9:47pm] Tox: "I can't do anything about it if you wanted to do it, but I trust you wouldn't leave line of sight on us?"
[9:47pm] Alivi: "Considering she is my new faveorite person in the whole world. Well sorta. I have some others. BUT you are somewhat special."
[9:47pm] Magnolia: Mila lowers her gun, stepping back towards the stairs
[9:47pm] Tox: «Put it up, Raj. We should be good.»
[9:48pm] Balthazaar: Charlie looks to Addison, worried for her.
[9:48pm] Lurker: «What do you think I'm doing?» He pats his 21E and sighs. "Next time."
[9:48pm] Tox: "Your call, Addison."
[9:49pm] Lurker: Raj strips the armor off, puts it all away, then tucks it back into the Rover, crossing his arms. "Here I was expecting some big ambush of people trying to steal Addison or something."
[9:49pm] Gwen: Addison looks to Mike. "Five minutes…give me five minutes."
[9:49pm] Alivi: "Nope, Just me."
[9:49pm] Alivi: Apollo smiles.
[9:50pm] Magnolia: Mila holsters her weapon, sand starts down the stairs, quietly, momentarily thinking she doesn't get paid enough for this shit, then remembering yes, yes she gets paid precisely enough for this shit
[9:50pm] Tox: Mike nods. «Stand down. Back out of earshot but keep eyes on.»
[9:50pm] Tox: Mike backs off as he specified.
[9:50pm] Alivi: Raine follows and leads Charlie away as well
[9:51pm] Lurker: Raj looks to Mila. "Thank you for the assistance."
[9:51pm] Alivi: Apollo leans back. "SOOOOO"
[9:51pm] Alivi: "Guess what."
[9:52pm] Gwen: Addison tenses and tries to look professional. "What?"
[9:52pm] Alivi: "You are the first Oracle of Delphi since…..1900s"
[9:53pm] Gwen: "I'm the what?"
[9:54pm] Alivi: "Oracle. Of. Delphi."
[9:54pm] Alivi: "You are my Oracle."
[9:54pm] Alivi: "Im so excited~" He grins.
[9:54pm] Magnolia: "You're welcome."
[9:55pm] Magnolia: Mila says to Raj
[9:55pm] Balthazaar: Charlie paces around the car like a tiger in a cage
[9:55pm] Alivi: Raine throws a snowball at Charlie
[9:55pm] Gwen: "Is that why you're allowed to torment me?"
[9:55pm] Alivi: "Yeaaa pretty much."
[9:56pm] Lurker: "So, you're our new sniper?"
[9:56pm] Lurker: "Pardon - long range engagement team member?"
[9:56pm] Alivi: "However it isnt offical offical. As you can tell your relic has been increasing your powers, you arent quite ready yet. HOWEVER come the midsummer moon a ritual will take place, make it all offical."
[9:56pm] Tox: "You suck all the fun out of it when you pretty it up like that, Raj.
[9:56pm] Tox: "
[9:57pm] Gwen: "That's fine. Tell me when and I'll be there. When are you going to put my boyfriend's voice back?"
[9:57pm] Balthazaar: Charlie looks at Raine, confused
[9:57pm] Alivi: "Oh it is back now."
[9:57pm] Alivi: "I wanted to tell you."
[9:57pm] Alivi: "Summer. Midsummer."
[9:57pm] Alivi: "Round then."
[9:58pm] Magnolia: "That I am." she smiles, putting out a hand
[9:58pm] Alivi: He waves his hand and the snake tattoo peels from her leg and into the air and vanishes.
[9:58pm] Alivi: He grins.
[9:58pm] Gwen: "Alright." Addison takes her phone out and starts typing. "Anything else I need to know?"
[9:58pm] Alivi: "mmm nope. Any questions?"
[9:59pm] Lurker: Raj shakes Mila's hand. "I'm the token immortal. Double as both assassin and - now - tank." He looks to Michael. "If only we could teach our druid how to heal."
[9:59pm] Tox: Mike snorts. "I'm not a druid."
[10:00pm] Lurker: "
[10:00pm] Lurker: "You shapeshift into an animal and you sniff people's butts when you're shifted. You're a druid."
[10:00pm] Tox: "Do not."
[10:00pm] Gwen: Addison blinks and narrows her eyes for a moment. "Two."
[10:00pm] Alivi: "Allllright."
[10:01pm] Magnolia: "Our druid can't heal? How did you fuck up you're skill points bad enough to manage that one."
[10:01pm] Tox: "Hm." Mike pulls out his Babbage and looks at it. "I wonder if you could cram this into a sniper rifle."
[10:02pm] Balthazaar: "I can heal…"
[10:02pm] Gwen: "First. Will you answer a few questions from my team? It'll make them less paranoid…or less inclined to think that I'm an incompetent child. Second…will you take good care of Ms. Turner. She's a special woman."
[10:02pm] Tox: "There, see." Mike points at Charlie. "/There's/ our druid."
[10:02pm] Alivi: He smiles. And nods.
[10:03pm] Alivi: "Alright, and as for the second, of course."
[10:03pm] Alivi: He pats Addison on the head.
[10:03pm] Magnolia: Mila raises a brow, then pulls out her own babbage, closely inspecting it, "Hmm… maybe."
[10:03pm] Alivi: "Im so happy I get to do this nowwwww"
[10:03pm] Magnolia: "If it could be managed, it would be an excellent birthday present."
[10:03pm] Lurker: "Druids should take healing skills just because it's useful. Our other friend here - Charlie, was it? - looks more like… I'm not sure." Raj rubs his chin. "I don't think we have a dedicated Cleric."
[10:03pm] Tox: "That'd be the next evolution of the weapon, wouldn't it?"
[10:03pm] Alivi: "My goodness when was my last Oracle…Victoria was…yes 1912…nasty year."
[10:03pm] Alivi: "Anyways go get em.
[10:04pm] Lurker: "I know a guy who's handy with rifles. I might be able to see if he's done anything with /his/ babbage."
[10:04pm] Tox: "Wouldn't be a terrible idea."
[10:04pm] Gwen: Addison looks over her shoulder. "Yeah it was…Titanic was terrible. Team! You can bombard the man with questions now."
[10:04pm] Balthazaar: Charlie frowns at Raj. He has no idea what he's talking about.
[10:04pm] Tox: Mike looks up as Addison raises her voice. "Alright, we're clear to advance."
[10:05pm] Alivi: Raine nods and goes up the stairs.
[10:05pm] Tox: Mike slips his Babbage back into its holster and crosses again to Addison and Apollo.
[10:05pm] Magnolia: "It'd be an adaptation of the weapon, dunno about evolution. I get caught ten feet away from a thing that goes bump in the night I'll take the handgun any day over a sniper. They're very specialized weapons."
[10:05pm] Balthazaar: Charlie goes with Raine
[10:05pm] Lurker: Raj shrugs. "I don't really have any."
[10:05pm] Magnolia: Mila heads up with them, guns holstered
[10:05pm] Alivi: "Raj you look fatter!" Apollo calls out.
[10:05pm] Tox: "I have one. Recap: what's the deal?"
[10:06pm] Alivi: Apollo looks at Michael.
[10:06pm] Alivi: "I needed to talk to my Addison."
[10:06pm] Tox: "I gather- wait. /Your/ Addison?" Mike raises an eyebrow.
[10:06pm] Alivi: "Yep. She is mine."
[10:06pm] Lurker: Raj holds up a hand and calls back. "It's muscle, {jerk}."
[10:07pm] Alivi: Apollo laughs at Raj's remark.
[10:07pm] Tox: "Could you elaborate a bit on that?"
[10:07pm] Alivi: "She is my oracle."
[10:07pm] Lurker: "You can take a knife and check for yourself."
[10:07pm] Tox: "Ahh." Mike nods. "Raj, stop teasing the locals."
[10:07pm] Tox: "Does this have anything to do with Addison's power feedback lately?"
[10:07pm] Alivi: "yea. It is typical."
[10:07pm] Lurker: "You're just jealous that I'll let him do it and not you."
[10:07pm] Alivi: "It should lessen here and there."
[10:08pm] Balthazaar: Charlie continues to scowl at the god. He doesn't like gods
[10:08pm] Tox: Mike nods. "Thank you. That had us concerned."
[10:08pm] Lurker: "I'd prefer to keep our relationship strictly professional, Michael. I'm sure you understand."
[10:08pm] Tox: "Raj, you couldn't pay me enough to stick you with a knife. I like my limbs where they are."
[10:09pm] Alivi: "Anyways what else, Im busy."
[10:09pm] Tox: "Anyway. Your Oracle. Of Delphi, yes? Like her relic? What does, will that entail, exactly?"
[10:09pm] Magnolia: Mila looks at Raj, and then at Charlie's hunting knife
[10:09pm] Magnolia: wondering if she should take the challenge
[10:09pm] Lurker: Raj looks to Mila and smirks.
[10:09pm] Alivi: "Nothing harmful. She can tell you herself. I need to get going."
[10:10pm] Balthazaar: Mila, it's a very large knife
[10:10pm] Tox: "Alright. Anyone else, or is Q&A done?"
[10:10pm] Lurker: "I have a question."
[10:10pm] Alivi: Gold light surrounds apollo, before he leaves, "Oh yea and next Time Addison don't lead them on a goosechase."
[10:11pm] Alivi: And then he vanishes. Seems like the question will have to be send via messenger.
[10:11pm] Lurker: Raj sighs.
[10:11pm] Magnolia: "…" Mila taps her arm, leveling a look at Addison
[10:11pm] Magnolia: "…Did you take the cup, Addison?"
[10:11pm] Lurker: "I guess I'll never get to ask. I'm starting to wonder if he /knows/."
[10:11pm] Tox: Mike looks over at Addison.
[10:12pm] Magnolia: she doesn't seem mad
[10:12pm] Magnolia: just genuinely curious
[10:12pm] Tox: "That…../would/ explain why there was no security alarm generated," Mike says slowly.
[10:13pm] Lurker: "Yeah, some crazy brown guy suiting up in armor next to the Acropolis. Not shady at /all/."
[10:13pm] Lurker: "With an LMG."
[10:13pm] Lurker: "Thanks, Michael."
[10:13pm] Tox: "What?"
[10:13pm] Gwen: Addison blinks and adjusts her glasses. "I can confirm nor deny anything."
[10:13pm] Tox: "Better overprepared than totally screwed."
[10:14pm] Alivi: Raine sighs and rubs his eyes.
[10:14pm] Alivi: "Lets go home then."
[10:14pm] Tox: He looks back at Addison. "…..Mkay."
[10:14pm] Alivi: "Viivi might tear up the lounge if we leave her there too long."
[10:14pm] Tox: "Alright. Break it all down and let's go home."
[10:14pm] Balthazaar: Charlie looks at Addison. "Are you okay?"
[10:15pm] Gwen: She glances to Charlie. "I'm not sure, Charlie." she smiles and pats his shoulder.
[10:16pm] Lurker: Raj looks at the Acropolis and sighs. "One day… One day…"
[10:16pm] Lurker: He hops into the Rover.
[10:16pm] Tox: Mike clambers back in.
[10:16pm] Balthazaar: Charlie looks more concerned now.
[10:16pm] Magnolia: "Alright… Can we stop for something to eat on the way back?"
[10:17pm] Magnolia: "To the plane."
[10:17pm] Tox: "I don't see why not."

The Team Returned back to London THE END
