"Yes, well. Perhaps we should save this conversation for another time?" They should move on as quickly as they can, to avoid getting caught in the net that would inevitably be pulled tight around here as soon as the vampires figured it out.

Lance calmly walks up to the group with his taser over his shoulder. "So a vampiric Spider Man huh?" He looks around their sixes and takes a long drag of his half burnt smoke. "Neat" he just states and smiles.

Re: Episode 2-10
Mike ponders. "We'll head underground. Numbers are still their biggest advantage. I'd really rather they didn't bring them to bear.

About then, the depowering effect occurs.

"And if you're looking for comic characters, it's more like Parasite. I take someone else's power if I take their blood. On the other hand, that's not unique to me either. The enemy can do that just as easily as I can if they overpower her."

Re: Episode 2-10
Before anyone else can say a word, three flashes of light occur.


After the flashes have stopped, Mike and Buffybot are standing alone on the street.

Annabelle, Aaron, and Lance have vanished into thin air!

They have three seconds to process that event, before a message comes over the police cruiser radio:

"Attention all units. THE DOME IS DOWN! REPEAT, THE DOME IS DOWN! Report in position, we need two cars need to proceed to the main road out of Sunnydale and form a roadblock."

As you two get closer to listen, you notice the keys the cruiser are still in the ignition.  That police crusier is open for the taking.

Re: Episode 2-10
Leaving doesn't even occur to Mike. Calling in reinforcements, however, does...

He dials the number for Angel Investigations in Los Angeles...

"We need to find the others immediately. There's a reason we aren't being teleported with everyone else."

The phone rings four times, then Michael gets the answering machine.

He hears the voice of Cordelia Chase inviting him to leave a message for Angel Investigations at the beep.

BEEP!

Re: Episode 2-10
Somewhere else

Three flashes of light and Annabelle, Aaron, and Lance are solid again.  After a few seconds of disorietation, they see they are in a hallway.  A bright, clean hallway with the lights on.  They definitely haven't been teleported to a long abandoned building. Or a hell dimension.  There are windows and it's dark outside, just like where they just came from.

All three of you notice that all the weapons you were carrying are still with you.  Nothing was lost in transit.

Re: Episode 2-10
Leaving didn't occur to Buffybot either. However following Mike's lead was the best option for her now. "I got it Mike and you read my mind. One question is where? We don't know WHERE they vanish to. Right now underground is the only option we see right now. So I guess after you."

"Interesting. Some kind of transportation spell. One limited to only transporting humans from the looks of it. Most interesting." Aaron looks out one of the windows to see if he recognises where they are.

Re: Episode 2-10
Aaron does in fact recognize where they are: back in City Hall again.

If the window view wasn't enough, further down the hall he sees some familiar pictures on the wall (from when he and Michael were sneaking around before)of historical Sunnydale buildings from the early 1900s.

Re: Episode 2-10
"Quite correct, young man."

The three of you turn to the sound of the voice to see the Mayor standing there.  Alone.

"How good of you all to join me. Now why don't we adjourn to the conference room.  I'm sure you're all wondering why I've called your here."

The Mayor then leads the trio back to a different conference room than the one you were in before (no major differences except no property damage like the other one has from the previous battle).

The Mayor takes a seat at the head of the long conference table.

Re: Episode 2-10
Annabelle follows the Mayor into the conference room.  She remains standing and tries to look non-threatening (even though her crossbow is in her hand, she keeps it pointed to the floor).

"Why yes governor.  We are wondering why you called us here.  Enlighten us please."

Re: Episode 2-10
Mike considered.

"We've gotta hit government buildings, and stay under radar. The police are still out there, and the trick I just used shouldn't be duplicated."

He pointed down.

"Underground it is."

It may be night time, but the police force still has to split up looking for them...

Underground:

Mike and Buffybot make there way through the underground tunnels, encountering no resistance so far.


OCC: So where are you two going exactly? Which location you're heading too will determine if you encounter any vampire cops.

Lance looks toward the Slayer as she speaks. "Yes dear sir, enlighten us if you will." he smirks toward the mayor with open arms.

Aaron doesn't say anything. He merely studies the mayor, the one they assume has the magical power to create the barrier and seemingly the one directing the vampire police force.

Re: Episode 2-10
City Hall

The mayor speaks; "I'll come right to the point. You three have been a thorn in my side.  I should just eliminate you and be done with it.  But that would be a waste.  The three of you could have a bright future on my team.  The winning team. Mr. James, Mr. Chambers how do you feel about eternal life?  Think of it Mr. James, all the time in the world to read all the old occult books you want.  And Mr. Chambers, you can smoke all the cigarettes you want without any fear of lung cancer.  And as for you Ms. Berkshire, you'll still be the slayer.  The Chosen One.  My Chosen One.  Starting with you cleaning up the non-vampiric demon population in the day time."

The mayor now stands up and looks deadly serious.  "Or you can die in this room. You're either with me or against me. Make your choice.  Now."

In reply to Director (msg # 199):

(OOC: Well, if we were moving at the speed of plot, we'd head towards city hall. If we're moving any other speed, I'll pick another building.)

Re: Episode 2-10
OCC: You can head for city hall if you want.  The nearest man hole cover will put you several yards away from the front of the building.  Although there may be some vamp cops guarding it.

Re: Episode 2-10
Mike picks a direction, "The vampires aren't spellcasters, but their boss is. Let's see if the Mayor knows anything about this..."

And Mike leads the way towards city hall.

Re: Episode 2-10
City Hall


"I've have decided............you can go to bloody hell!!!!  Get him!!!" Annabelle screams, hoping Aaron and Lance will follow her lead as puts everything she's got into a crossbow shot to the Mayor's heart.

The bolt flies through the air as the mayor tries to dodge and fails. THOK! Bullseye in the heart. But he doesn't dust.

Lance goes into a Low roll as there was no time for thinking since the slayer made her move.  When he is done with the roll he ends up in a crouching position with the taser aimed at the Mayor's legs.  "I guess this is your answer."

SHHRRAAKK!!   The lighting stream from the taser rips through the air, but the mayor has better success dodging that as the taser blast hits the bookshelf behind him.

"I think we'll pass." Aaron takes a little longer to strike than his companions. Instead opting to cause the man a little pain, after all he had put them through a lot these last days.

Both arrows impact the mayor's groin...............and bounce off, hitting the floor.

"Looks like I owe the chief $20.  He told me this new mail order kevlar jock strap would come in handy.  I said I had no use for it.  He said I'll bet you $20 you do."
the mayor says as he pulls the crossbow arrow from his heart.

"You three think I've made your lives miserable these last few days?  I've only just begun."



OCC: Back to the combat thread.  Mayor has initiative this round. You can stay and fight or try to run for it if you want.

Re: Episode 2-10
Outside City Hall

Mike lifts off the manhole cover as he and Buffybot climb up and are now across the street from City Hall.

They see one police car at the front entrance with two cops (they appear to be regular beat cops).


OCC: You can either go attack the two cops or try to sneak around them to another entrance.  Their are two side entrances and one in the back.  If you want to sneak, make a dex plus acrobatics roll.

Re: Episode 2-10
Buffybot looks at Mike and then the two cops. "As much as I love to take them on now. We don't have time to deal with them. I'm going to attempt to get past them first."

08:43, Today: Buffybot rolled 19 using 1d10+14.  Let's try to be sneaky.
