Standing next to Kid Quantum, Solar Hawk notices what he's indicating. (I'd also be somewhat surprised if Intrepid didn't pick up on it - either noticing it herself *hint, hint* or over hearing.)

Dawnfire is currently unaware, not having noticed the figures, and actually a little in awe of the wall itself. She does notice the probots and is actually a little ashen, as if she's seen a ghost. Dream Princess will notice this before anyone else as I am understanding that she's not actively looking at the wall beyond taking in the sheer magnitude of it.

Having made a jaunt back to the 30th, Bastion remained behind, and the roster was bolstered by a proper star cruiser. The Science Police manning the craft are under orders to assist as you require, but not to actively scan or even look out windows at the Source Wall.

Intrepid
Condition: Normal
HP: 1

Intrepid stood in awe of the Source Wall, and wasn't really looking at it as intently as the others. However, she probably did pick up on the conversation and exchanges... She'll immediately turn towards Dawnfire and follow her gaze to the two large stone robots affixed to the wall. The empty space forming the portal between them draws the Daxamite's attention.

"What is it? Is that how they're getting through time?"




OOC - Okay, got the hint... and I can't remember my password on Orokos. You can roll for me until I figure it out.

Quantum Kid
[Lyle]
HP: 2 (LP: 1) Condition: Intangible (stuck)

"I don't see how, unless they're actually coming through from the Otherside? I'm going to check it out." Stuck in his intangible form, QK easily drifts through the walls of the cruiser toward the Source Wall. There were stories of those who had tried to pass through the Wall ... Darkseid, Highfather, Luthor ... the Flash had went through once to save Orion. It was said none remembered what they encountered. <"Don't worry I'm not going through, mom would kill me. I just want to get better sensor readings ... on our friends.">

Professor Xao, do you see them? By the portal. Should we tell Dawnfire?"
Xao whistled and sighed, "This is why I hate time travel, but we have to try and rescue them, so no, we can't hide this from her. This close to the Source Wall, we might be able to keep everyone alive but at the same time this could also go very wrong."

"I want full scans and analysis on that portal," he ordered, "and keep an eye out for any more robots Don't want any surprises. Any ideas from anybody?"

"Dawnfire, I don't know what is about to happen, but we have to stop the robots."

"Quantum Kid, stay safe out there."

Intrepid
Condition: Normal
HP: 1

Intrepid's hands fly over the console, attempting to gain more information from the instruments. Finally, she walks away from the technology and simply stares out a window, looking intently at the wall. Specifically focusing on the empty space everyone was referring to as a portal...

It was probably a bad idea, but she brought her own impressive Daxamite senses to the situation, and if it proved necessary, she would join KQ outside...

As Intrepid stares, she realizes that her vision cannot penetrate the Source Wall any better than the ship's sensors. She could see Kid Quantum floating in front of the large empty space - it was easily large enough for something of the cruiser's size to pass through - and the Probots flanking the smooth surface seemed very out of place.

Quantum and Intrepid will both realize that most of the individual faces and forms on the Wall are just that. Individuals. This portal area and the two robots are the only real generic beings for miles and miles.

Quantum finds himself floating towards the base of one of the Probots. Intrepid finds her attention drawn to the other.

Dawnfire looks out at the two beings beneath the feet of the robots. She acknowledges Dragonmage without looking at him or speaking. A barely noticeable nod is all that he gets, and she seems to swallow her own fear a little. She is twitching, as if ready (or wanting) to move.

To Intrepid and Kid Quantum, the figures of the trapped Legionnaires seem to move, reaching out to you. Wildfire's faceplate is as unreadable as ever, but Dawn Star seems to implore you to help.

OOC - I need two Will Saves each from KQ and Intrepid. I leave it to first come first served as to who is facing which Legionnaire. I will post Dawnfire's Will save once you both post.

Solar Hawk answers Dragonmage's command. Further scan of the Wall will indicate various projections of age and flux. For instance, the area of interest suggests it has been there less than fifty years, whereas other areas are too old to calculate. Sensors attempt to determine these age references by the debris floating around and/ or accumulated around various figures. There is also a means to determine age by the intensity of the energy output of various beings' eyes.

Dragonmage

Seven hells, I didn’t trust her because we had just fought her, but to everybody else, that was seven years ago. Just look at her face, if that girl isn’t going through a monumental amount of pain and even wondering if she is about to exist; this situation is frakked.

“Just because they are there, does not mean that you won’t be around.”
Dragonmage leaned closed to Dawnfire to comfort her, “You are your own person and I will be damned to the firey hells if I am going to just let something happen to you.”


“However, you are a legionnaire and just standing there isn’t going to help. We can do more with your assistance than without it.”

He turned to the captain of the Science Police cruiser.
“Captain, please get me a line to Legion headquarters, they need to be advised what we’ve found here."

Turning to Intrepid, he still couldn’t get used to the idea of Intrepid as a woman.
“Intrepid, what would happen if we were to go back fifty years to when we believe this portal was created and interfere with it? Would we even make it through the Iron Curtain of time?”

“Somebody find me a way to communicate with Wildfire and Dawnstar.” He ordered, “Solarhawk, is there anything at all passing through that portal, either into our universe or out of our universe?"


In his head, he started piecing together a ritual to enable him to be able to use magic to try and breach the gap. A telepath would be very useful at this moment … wait, the telepathic plugs. Wildfire had one built into his suit. They both should have them. At this range, they won’t be able to do so, but with Kid Quantum getting in close, he might be able or they might be able to use him as a relay to boost the range.

“Kid Quantum, try to contact Wildfire and Dawnstar through your telepathic ear plugs. If need be, we will find a way to boost the signal from here.”

Intrepid
Condition: Normal
HP: 1

Intrepid looks at Dawnfire, echoing what Dragonmage was thinking (even if she wasn't a mindreader). She looks at the wall through the viewscreen.

"On it." She says in response to Dragonmage.

Turning away from the Wall for a moment, she enters some commands. A Time Sphere was in the shuttle bay. Her hands flew over a console, linking with the Sphere's computer.

Obviously no area of the portal/probots/Dawnstar/Wildfire, but its something:

Intrepid discovers that you can travel back the suggested number of years. No barrier presents itself. Although it's reasonable to assume that the best point to interfere with its creation is about seven years ago when Dawnfire was created, or more precisely when Dawnstar and Wildfire disappeared.

Determining when they were "added" to the Wall is another matter entirely.

Intrepid's knowledge (and roll) of Temporal Mechanics will also suggest that interfering with the creation of Dawnfire or the addition to the Wall are likely not going to cause much else than a divergent timeline. But its a good idea nonetheless - determining the point of origin of the attacks that is.

Kid glides closer to Dawnstar. Vaguely aware of Dragonmage thoughts, they nudge him to reach out through the telepathic plugs to one of his parents most revered friends. <"Dawnstar . . . are you there?">

Intrepid stops her searching, her voice trailing off as she speaks with Dragonmage. Before anyone can really react, she moves as only a Daxamite or Kryptonian can. Fast. The ship sensors barely register the airlock opening before the close command is punched - apparently Intrepid still has enough of her wits to not endanger the ship.

A moment later, and she is hovering relatively next to Kid Quantum. The Half-Daxamite reaches out, her hand inches from Wildfire's face plate.

Intrepid: The image of Wildfire seems to move. No, it does move. He's alive! He's reaching to you, but the stone that encases him is making it difficult

"Intrepid! Intrepid!" Solarhawk shouts into her comm. "Lauren! You crazy Daxamite! You're not omnipotent!
What the bloody hell are you playing at!?!"


Intrepid is aware of static in her comm, but doesn't register the words. Wildfire needs her help. His gloved hand is reaching to her, imploringly.

The pyschic residue of the Wall reaching out to Kid Quantum is faint, and he didn't feel the same pull as Intrepid, not by a long shot. But with the Wall trying to call to him, and the presence of his affected teammate, KQ feels a slight pull that he is able to ignore easily. Watching Intrepid he can see that she's floating closer and closer to the wall. It's as if some primal instinct of flight is warring with her urge to reach out and pull Wildfire from the wall.

OOC - Since she didn't post her saves, I'm ruling that Intrepid failed the Will saves - not disastrously, just enough to make things interesting. Everyone (except Intrepid :lol: :P ) take a HP.

Quantum Kid
[Lyle]
HP: 3 (LP: 0) Condition: Intangible (stuck)

Stuck in his intangible form there Kid only has one choice. He flies behind the distracted Intrepid ... <"Sorry"> ... reaching out, his hand passing through the Daxamite's head and shifting his quantam density.


QK use of Molecular Disruption is just suppose to be an attempt to break Intrepid free of the pull of the Wall (?). Pushed it would be a DC 29 Affliction

Dragonmage

“Intrepid, don’t touch them until we know what will happened.” he shouted over the telepathic plugs. Dammit it. Can’t imagine it will be good though. there is a reason we don't know much about the Source Wall

“Solarhawk, try to boost the telepathic ear plugs, we need to be able to speak to them." he hoped QK would be able to stop her in time.

Dream Princess
(Princess Genevieve Orisa Gwinevere Dreamurr Vauxhaul)
Condition: Normal
HP: 2


Dreamer watches everyone starting to panic over Intrepid, a bit lethargic to respond herself. She couldn't move fast enough to help....or...could she? The Princess moves to a window and gazes out towards Intrepid, suddenly a likeness of the dream-powered Leaguer hovers in the air next to Intrepid. The illusory duplicate of course didn't have a telepathic earplug, and you could not hear anything spoken in space, so the best she could do is body language, moving in front od the daxamite, waving her arms, trying to point her back towards the ship with an imploring look on her face.
Huzzah for perception ranged powers. It has Visual, Aural and Tactile, so can touch and be touched, but the DC is disbelieve (and thus hand goes right through) is only 12
