"I... uhh... I accept," Colin says, flush with a bit of embarrassment. He had assumed he would be asked to leave, and here he was being asked to stay long term.

Everyone

"Looks like ive got some Paperwork to do." Elena chimes in easily from nearby with her ever present smile. "Welcome aboard Collin were glad to have you."

Collin is inducted into the group full time later that evening as is Prysm who makes her presense known.

Unfortunately Shock annoucnes hes leaving due to commitments from BCPD taking precedent. He offers to be avilable as needed but cant stick around sadly.

Still the Protectors life continues as the Team as it is, is promptly called to action when a Mad scientist unleashes a horde of Robotic Apes on the City. The resultant monkey business is quickly disaptched and things return to as normal as possible which is to say crazy as always.

Still a third newcomer also takes up somewhat permanent residence almost without seeming to need to be asked as if the team were merely waiting for him to show up. Thomas Flynn the Magus Errant. As the mage makes his home in the bases more arcane parts he proves his worth by literaly closing a gate to hell, opened by an ambiitous would be world conquerer who got hold of a dangerous mystical key.

Thomas finds himself busy as the Magical threats seemt o mount against the team, especially where it involves Black Anubis and the creatures on going quest to find and breal the Five elemental Key stones.

But those are quests for another day.

New chapter starting soon barrign you guys needing or desiring to look into anything.

Magus Errant
Thomas Flynn


Fire and noise surround him. Rallying cries and oaths of vengeance and devastating attacks fill the air. Destroyer is there, at the center of it all. Reaching, grasping for the Conduit, godhood the reward. He can't let that happen. He can't. So, he reaches and grasps for the Conduit as well. Knowing full well it will kill him, perhaps even burn him from the Pattern altogether. But it is the third hand that drives him most urgently. She is there, reaching as well, for the same reason. Grasping, not to claim the power, but to deny the Destroyer. Her spirit is stronger than even she knows, but the Conduit will unmake her. No. No. She will be safe., he thinks, as his hand closes on the artifact. And her hand closes on his. Destroyer howls as he falls away, cast down and down and down. She will be safe. He looks into her impossible eyes and sees anger and fear and love, at war one with another. "We had no time...", he hears himself say, as the Conduit begins to burn and pull at the same time. "We had no time." And the light burns and pulls and he twists and...

***********************

Thomas sat upright in bed, his breathing ragged and panicked. It took a few more seconds to orient himself, remember he was in the Protectors HQ, in the room they'd given him. He hadn't had the dream in a long time now, but he knew prefectly well why he'd had it again. Hawaii. I got damned lucky in Hawaii, he thought, as he showered and dressed for the day. If Kirk hadn't picked up my slack... But, there was something else there as well. He could have sworn he'd heard her laugh, felt her will filling-in the blanks for his piss-poor summoning circle. But that was just the wishful thinking of a fool, feeling older than he ever had before. He pulled out his wallet and looked again at his photo of her. As he regarded it, the magic awoke and her smile became a silent laugh. No matter. He could always hear her laughter. "Anna.", he breathed. She was on the far side of Everyhthing that coulde ever Be, never for him to see again. I imagine she's Arch Magus now, he thought with a smile. With a sigh, he put the photo away and turned to the door. Opening it, he meets Elena, the team's coordinator. Her momentary look of surprise changed into bemused annoyance: this wasn't first time he'd opened a door and caught her short of knocking. It wouldn't be the last, either.

"Ah,Good Morning, Elena", he smiled as he entered the hallway. "How can I be of service?"

"Morining, Thomas.", She replied with a slight, wry smile. "I had some more questions for you if you'd join me in my office."

"Certainly. Lead the way.", the Magus Errant replied, setting off, bolstered by thoughts of faraway, impossible eyes.

Nasty Nasty boys, don't ever change, huh

A busy month has passed for everyone with Shocks departure. Still the electric adventurer was able to provide some assistance here and there as well as passing on a contact with a Friend Dark Angel who helped out on a case. She recommended after said case to look into a guy calling himself Vigilante who might just be a good fit for the groups needs.

The group would soon find itself embroiled in a case before they could dig too deep though as Elena brought a news report to your attention.

This is Lori Landry with a news 2 special report." begins the lovely Ms. Landry a rising star on the news scene in Bay City. "The Pentagon has just confirmed the theft of an experimental weapons system designated only the A-11. While Details are scarce, an anonymous tip revealed that the A-11 may be a new generation of Combat Robot being moved to a secure location for testing."

The scene shifts to an overhead view of a convoy of military trucks that look like a train ran over it before backing up and rolling over it again. Smoke and fire are everywhere and several bodies covered in ponchos are visible despite the somewhat grainy quality of the tape. The image shifts to the upper corner revealing Ms. Landry.

"Sadly there are reports of no Survivors at this time." she adds as more of the tape shows Soldiers moving among the remains of the convoy. "Authorities believe the Super villain known as Shockwave; who recently escaped in a daring day light breakout from a Medium security prison where she had been transferred after apparently losing her powers may be responsible."

Authorities are offering a substantial reward for information about Shock, and the A-11 and for the safe return of the Prototype. Anyone with Information should contact the FBI and Aegis as soon as possible at the numbers at the bottom of your screen, all calls are toll free and confidential."

In other news we move to sports where the Bay City Sharks have pulled off another win, Gabe has the sports wrap up.

"Thats the last bit of news we have, so far." Elena says as she mutes the tv. "Our Aegis contacts seem a bit worried but I havent been able to get them to open up to me, and I havent been able to reach Coulson either." she adds mentioning the teams Aegis liason.

And back into the fray we go, sorry about the delay guys let me know how everyone's doing and as always if anyone wants a hero point to start some fun wrting for an adventure can always be done. let me know if you need a villain or 3 to boop in the snoot :D

well also soon say hello to Macy and Vigilante

Magus Errant
Thomas Flynn

Thomas listened intently as Elena began her briefing. Moved to a secure location for "testing", he mused. Translation: showing off their new toy to get a bigger budget. When Elena finished, he asked the table, "I'm sorry, I'm still not caught up on who's who here. The Shockwave I'm familiar with was a big guy in a power suit. He usually knocked over banks, but he'd hit R&D labs on occasion. Something of a Mook actually. This one, what is her power set? Does she usually hit high-end, hard targets like this?"

"I'm sorry, I'm still not caught up on who's who here. The Shockwave I'm familiar with was a big guy in a power suit. He usually knocked over banks, but he'd hit R&D labs on occasion. Something of a Mook actually. This one, what is her power set? Does she usually hit high-end, hard targets like this?"

Elena brings up Aegis files on Shockwave and her group of tagalongs in the Nasty Boys, most of them are pieces of work. "Shockwaves no mook that's for sure. She single handedly nearly lead a successful coup of her fathers organization the Maggia, when he experimented on her which gave her ,her powers she used them to basically slaughter the entire organization. Shes a high powered electromagnetic user, absorbs electricity projects it among other things."


She pauses as she brings up a set of videos showing Shockwave and the Nasty Boys committing various crimes. "And yeah she usually does, shes not into small time targets, when shes involved its usually somethign big."

"So we have no idea what the A-11 can do, and the fact that Shockwave has it which means she's going to likely use it sometime very soon."

"No Im afraid not, the Armies being less then Cooperative and with no contact with Aegis at the moment we'll have to figure out what it can do the hard way."
Krik had to admit that sometimes he struggled to keep straight all the super villains who were active, let alone how weird it must be for his new teammate who came from a world just slightly different from the sound of things, who had to second guess most of what he knew. "I'm wondering if she doesn't have any known preferred partners she likes to work with? They might have an idea of where to look for her."
Elena shakes her head "I'm afraid the closest she has to regular asscoiates are this bunch of lowlifes." She indicates the files on at least half a dozen or more supers "The Nasty Boys were formed after she ran into the Champions while she held her own they nearly took her down, next time she appeared this bunch were with her."
"The last time the government was so tight lipped about a stolen project, it was some anti-hero weapon. You know, in case we turn evil and all."
"A some what sobering thought,.." She nods her head solemly "It's why I've got Tony working with Aya to see if they can break some of the encryption surrounding the project." she smiles slyly 'I've also arrainged some help for you guys, I havent been in conctact with Prysm either since she went back underground. So I contacted the Honor Guard they have a couple of their people standing by if you need some backup."

Here of course are the bad guys A DC 15 Int check or Expertise Supervillains heroes etc would give basic information

A DC 15-20-25 Investigation check would provide some information based on their profiles and the roll of course
