Tamati "Taheka" Stevens
HP: 1
Condition: Normal


It looked like the cafe was nearly under control although Herta was still awake albeit encased in was it toffee but still helpless for the moment.

Making a snap decision Tamati shimmered back into his watery form then moved over to stand in front of Herta, even though he hated to do what he was about to from what he had seen of her trick before Herta was probably the most dangerous love struck opponent still awake.

"I'm so sorry Herta" Tamati said swinging a fist intending to knock the helpless girl in front of him senseless.
Tamati will perform a coup-de grace on Herta using "Watery Strike" Strike 9, so that should be a DC29 Toughness Save assuming auto and critical hit.

HP: 3 CND: Normal

Not for the first time Lex envied Martin. The ability to heal seemed amazing and being able to help people seemed far more meaningful than anything Lex could do.

Still he could only imagine how annoyed Martin was going to be to be blindsided by this.

"All I can do is ask, okay? And I can't promise that they can even fix it." Lex pulls out his Frankensteined flip phone and brings up the notepad app, "What's your name, cell number, and what's he sick with?"

NVAE, CAFETERIA (Dennis, Jack, Martin, Otso, Tamati, Violet; NPCs: Benedikt, Derryl-731, Doug, Herta, J.R., Kas, Kelly, Kira, Larrikin, Lexus, Mickie, Newton, Nicole, Rebecca, Rose)
Tamati clobbered Herta with all he had and yet still she continued to stand. Not far off, Kelly grazed Otso’s neck as she flew by him.
The Order, Round Two
  • Herta (49): Bound, Bruised, Dazed (Martin, R2), Helpless, Stunned (Tamati, R2)
  • Martin (27)

  • Mickie (20): Bound, Helpless
  • Nicole (20): Entangled (-2 Atk/Def, -4 Dex, half speed), Sleep
  • Benedikt (19): Bruised, Entangled (-2 Atk/Def, -4 Dex, half speed), Sleeping, Staggered, Stunned
  • Kas (18): Entangled (-2 Atk/Def, -4 Dex, half speed), Stunned (Martin, R2)
  • Violet (17)
  • Heidi (17): Entangled (-2 Atk/Def, -4 Dex, half speed), Stunned (Martin, R2)
  • Rebecca (17): Bound, Helpless, Stunned (Martin, R2)
  • J.R. (16)
  • Mouloud (14): Bruised, Stunned (R1), Staggered, Suffocating (R1)

  • Derryl (4): Nauseated (single move action, R1), Stunned (Martin, R2)
  • Lexus (3): Bound, Helpless
  • Kira (3): Bound, Helpless, Sleep
Tantivy - Toughness - DC 29: 1d20+4 22 Bruised and stunned. Tantivy - Fortitude - DC 19: 1d20+3 22 She remains conscious.

Kelly will go for Otso. Leannán Sí - Attack: 1d20+12 20 Presuming that that’s a hit, that’ll be. DC 10 Toughne... You know what, McGuffin? I’m 100% okay with you not rolling dice and just telling me that you’re fine. :D

Rose is unconscious.

Derryl is stunned.

Lexus is going to try and break free. Shock, roll a DC 25 Toughness save for the snare, if you’d be so kind.

Kira is asleep.

A new round will kick off. Herta is stunned.

Martin is up.
NVAE, HALL (Jack; NPCs: Bacon, Beatrice, Fisher, Kowalski, Murphy, Yavorshak)
Following Robyn’s scent, Jack stepped back into the hallway; Mouloud was effortless hoisting up an unconscious Vlad and moving him towards the lower levels. Robyn’s scent was headed back to where this madness had started—back to where Jack had left the Murphy clan...

Lex was gone; so was his brother and Kirstie. An exasperated Roger was slumped against the wall, listening as his wife demanded the headmaster. The headmistress had joined them, as had the school’s therapist and its physician.

Robyn’s scent ended here. She was watching—likely invisibly.

NVAE, FRONT QUAD (Lex; NPCs: Kirstie)
“My name is Alex Kuznetsov,” the bearded man said. “My son... He has cerebral palsy... If you can help him, my wife and I...” The man started to tear up. “We would do anything.”

Martin surveyed who might be left conscious and likely affected.
Herta (49): Bound, Bruised, Dazed (Martin, R2), Helpless, Stunned (Tamati, R2)
Mickie (20): Bound, Helpless
Kas (18): Entangled (-2 Atk/Def, -4 Dex, half speed), Stunned (Martin, R2)
Heidi (17): Entangled (-2 Atk/Def, -4 Dex, half speed), Stunned (Martin, R2)
Rebecca (17): Bound, Helpless, Stunned (Martin, R2)
Kelly (6): Dazed
Derryl (4): Nauseated (single move action, R1), Stunned (Martin, R2)
Lexus (3): Bound, Helpless
He didn't want to continue his anesthic trick - he didn't want to keep exposing his allies nor continue to dose those already succumbing to his chemical assault. He had to reluctantly admit that brute force was the best way to continue this.

His spreading tree form rippled and seed pods developed over certain students. They swelled rapidly in their tear drop shapes til each was roughly the size of a large grapefruit then as one they dropped like lead weights on chords connecting it to the 'tree', oversized fruity fists seeking to thump onto the heads of the above-named students. Certainly he felt bad for their plight, but his pragmatism won out over his empathy.
stunting: Striking Strength 8, Area-burst (Targeted), Selective, Flaw: Full-Round action.
For those that are helpless, its a DC 28 Toughness and DC 18 (or 23 if crit applies) Fort to remain conscious.
For those that are stunned (They've lost dodge bonus to defense), or Dazed/Nothing (normal defenses)
PA Attack: 1D20+8 = [17]+8 = 25.
DC 23 Toughness to any that hits.
Will be Fatigued next turn.

Lex copied the info onto his cell phone, "The healer isn't like that. If they can help they will. It's not about stuff or wanting things."

"If they can help they'll call, if not... well, it's not that they don't care but they aren't god. They can't fix everything, ya know?"

Jack said nothing at the moment, everyone in the room seemed to be more involved in whatever was going on in here. Even Robyn from what the American could tell, so he altered his body once again to adapt to her latest trick as well as protect himself just in case he needed it.

OOC wrote:So Jack will adjust his Shapeshifting to include the following;
Shapeshift Set-Up:
-Sensitive Nose [4 pts]: Super-Senses 4 [Olfactory (Analytical, Extended, Tracking Scent 2)]
-Bat Radar [3 pts]: Super-Senses 3 [Sonar]
-Dragon Scales: [3 pts] Protection 3

From there Jack’ll try to locate Robyn, Notice Check: _: 1D20+8 = [9]+8 = 17.

The Fluxx-tree looked down to see how effective his area attack was at putting some of the troublesome students to sleep.

Martin watched as the others slumped to the floor.

Jack's eyes went towards the ceiling. Robyn was levitating up there--watching invisibly from above. While the ceiling was high enough that everyone could walk under Robyn without running into her, it wasn't so high that she would be out of reach.

NVAE, FRONT QUAD (Lex; NPCs: Kirstie)
Kirstie was red-faced as they climbed out of the cab. "Sorry about that," she said. "Me and my big mouth..." She was eager for a change in subject, and thankfully, one was right in front of them: they were looking up at Wolf's house. "Maybe this isn't the best idea. We could just... get something to eat or..."

A van pulled in where the cab had been parked. While the driver kept the engine running, two men slid the back passenger door open with a thud. As they got out, they were speaking in German, but trailed off at the sight of Lex and Kirstie. <"Hello,"> one said in German, while the other oggled Kirstie, <"is Wolf in?">

Martin coalesced back into his humanoid form, the golden jello seemed sluggish as it gained solidity and adopted Martin colors and the black-and-white of his school uniform.

He started checking pulses and wounds and directing those that were conscious and mobile to start gathering those unconscious into triage areas based on critical cases vs. injured vs. sleeping.

"''Eadmaster Newton, do you know of any ozer pockets of affected students or staff?" Martin asks while administering to the injured, some of whom he was responsible for.

Imago
HP: 6

Dennis stood, reflecting on what he saw. The macabre image from Herta's head. He knew about Laputa, Herta's membership and Lacuna's 'seeding', the basic ideas anyway. But none of the experience to say whether this was a seeding as opposed to some very potent psychic defenses with grim imagery.

When this was over, he'd ask Martin, the Headmaster or other knowledgeable heads. Assuming he had credibility left.

<Don't know. Wrong address,> Lex says, hooking an arm around Kirstie's and leading her away, "Come on, let's get out of here."

He couldn't help but stare at the van. So many bad memories coming to mind.

Jack was tempted to use his powers to bring Robyn down, but didn’t only because Newton had warned him to not be rough with her. None the less, the American’s method was as direct as he ever was. “Robyn, the Headmaster wanted me to ask you to have a conversation with him at your earliest convenience.” Jack paused, making it obvious to Robyn that he knew exactly where she was. “Since you’re already here could you please come down to the floor, make your self visible and have that talk?”

Otso hurried over to help Martin with triage and first aid. He was curious to hear what the Headmaster had to say about further trouble spots, but right now helping his fellow students here in the cafeteria was plenty enough for him.

Tamati "Taheka" Stevens
HP: 1
Condition: Normal

"Wow that was intense" Tamati said watching the love struck students slump to the ground sound asleep, that Martin kid was full of surprises.

Making sure that Herta was comfortable first Tamati then joined in helping the others doing what he could while keeping half an eye on Herta.

As soon as the speedster started stirring Tamati made his way over to her still unsure how to apologise for trying to hit her assuming that she even remembered what just happened.

Violet Lear
HP: 1
Condition: Fatigued


Violet sighed with relief when the commotion died down. Not that she'd really been concerned about everyone. Not many of them were actually fighting and nobody seemed to be really hurt. But it had dragged on for a while and she was getting tired. She turned to Newton, who had dragged them down here. "All right, then?"
