NVAE, HALLWAY (Dennis and Otso; NPCs: Mouloud, Newton, Vlad)
As he readied himself for the brawl, Dennis appeared in the corridor bringing news from the others: knocking the afflicted unconscious ended the infatuation.

Mouloud grabbed Vlad by the mouth and swung him around. The Romanian's feet left the ground as he was spun. Mouloud released him a second later, letting the stocky youth fly straight for the wall. The speed and power of his blow caused Vlad to crack the plaster, but Vlad seemed almost unfazed by the attack, thanks to the gummy substance composing his body.
The Order, Round One
  • Mouloud (14)
  • Otso (11)
  • Vlad (11): Bruised
  • Dennis (9)
  • Newton (0)
Quwah - Attack: 1d20 16 Hits. Mouloud will start a grapple.Quwah - Grapple: 1d20+8 24 vs.
Candyman - Grapple: 1d20+19 23 Vlad is grappled. Mouloud is going to throw him at the wall. Given his strength, I'm just going to treat this as a DC 23 Toughness save, but Vlad's got Impact Resistance on his Bouncing, so he'll reduce it to DC 17: Candyman - Toughness - DC 17: 1d20+11 16 And fail by one. I'll be damned.

Otso will be up, McGuffin. Also, have a hero point. It just hit me that Kirstie sent Dennis to be Otso's backup. I hadn't even considered how perfect this potential teamup was.

NVAE, MAIN OFFICE (Dennis, Lex, Martin; NPCs: Beatrice, Dwight Kowalski [unconscious], Kirstie, Lillian Murphy, Roger Murphy [snared], Steven [snared])
Kirstie stood up and turned to Martin. “Martin,” she said, “Steven’s back to normal. It may be knocking them unconscious, or maybe the jolt Lex gave him rewired something!” This revelation needed to be reported to the others, she realized: “Dennis, you need to tell the others! If anyone else is infected by the love potion, the others need to know how to snap them out of it!”

Dennis wasted no time in hurrying after the group Newton had taken with him. Kirstie watched as Martin moved to knockout Lex’s father. “Better not do L-Lillian.” She had almost called the woman ‘Lex’s mum’, but Kirstie felt that the woman wasn’t fit to be called that now. A mother loved her children—protected them. Lillian Murphy had hurt Lex.
Martin continued his 'experiment', ignoring the empassioned words to the best of his ability. As long as it didn't actually get violent his intervention wasn't necessary. Possibly even if it did his intervention might not be needed.

With some trepidation he woke the elder Murphy wearing the guise of Dr. Yavorshak. He's anticipating a superspeed grab attempt and ready to go aqueous.
[Does, indeed, knocking Mr. Murphy out restore him?]
If this is successful he'll leave an ear here to monitor this situation but race after the others to lend his assistance at the cafeteria*.
[*unless something happens here to usurp that.]

Greystone:
[Jack Rexroth]
HP: 5
Bursting through the double doors, the foursome were hit by a sight unlike anything they were expecting. Together, they had seen their share of chaos. Jack had battled Laputa; Tamati had fought the Zoo; Violet had rescued her boyfriend from a church were zealots wanted to castrate him; J.R. had fought the Vindicators of his home dimension…

This was different, though: here, Derryl wasn’t trying to kill them because of some vast conspiracy; rather, wanted to kill Larrikin because the Australian was between him and Heidi; there was no dogma driving Mickie to sterilize them; she was simply in her metal form, throwing vending machines and tables at an airborne Doug, who was carrying Nicole away from this madness; Rose wasn’t seduced by a mastermind’s silvered tongue, but was desperately trying to pin Kelly’s tongue with her own.

Benedikt’s arms were around Kira; the Finnish freshman’s arms were around him. “All that speed,” the Icelandic boy was telling Herta, “but you can’t get anywhere near her.”

“&$#% undo it,” she hissed. “Do it, before I snap your $&@% neck.”

“You can’t get anywhere close to me—not so long as I’m with my Kira.” Benedikt looked deeply into the newer student’s eyes. “I love you,” he told her.

“I love you,” she told him before pressing her lips to his.

As they began to make out, Herta screamed. She grabbed a bottle of juice and hurled it at them.

Not much further off, Jack spotted a shirtless Lexus. He watched as Kas licked up the other boy’s chest.
Jack couldn't help but stare at the multitude of scenes happening at once, each participant was so involved in their own that they were oblivious to the world around them. He fully blamed Robyn and wanted some serious answers from her about why she did this, and the anger over her drugging so many people without a second thought helped him to focus on locating the girl's scent so he could track her down.

And to keep things easy here's the Notice Check I did in my last post; Notice Check: _: 1D20+8 = [18]+8 = 26.

Lex gently reached forward and pulled Kirstie back away from the door.

"You really don't know me at all do you?" Lex stared at the door, he took a slow shuddering breath. They could cut him into pieces, they'd grow back. If she had even listened a little since they're been reunited she would have known that.

But she didn't. She didn't love him. She loved a ghost of what could have been.

"I fought for you. I bled for you. I would have killed for you!"

Lex reached out and touched the door sadly, "But mutilation, torture and genocide? No. I can't. I just don't know you anymore. But my mother taught me too good to stand for that."

"Goodbye, Mom. I don't think... I just don't think we'll ever see each other again,"
He released Kirstie and turned to leave pausing only to give the door once more look, "I loved you."

Head hung low, Lex leaves the room.

Ursa
HP: 5 -> 4
Cnd: Wrassling


Otso winced as Mouloud effortlessly picked up Vlad and slammed him into the wall. He needed to put a stop to this before anyone was injured seriously.

A frustrated growl escaped from him when Dennis showed up to back him up. "I appreciate you had good intentions while going behind my back Dennis. I know this school takes in some troubled kids but she's seriously out of control."

Otso charged forward, trying to grab Mouloud but the super-strong teen broke his first attempt at a lock. Otso however shifted his footing and got his furry arms around his opponent to begin to try and subdue him.
Otso Karell, student at the New Vindicators Academy Europe.

Tamati "Taheka" Stevens
HP: 1

"Holy shit" was all Tamati could think of saying once he saw what was going on inside the cafe, he expected it to be bad but this took the cake.
