Re: E1S8 - Southern Shore facility - Everyone
Todd strolls into lane way and sees the tail end of the escaping sedan.

To his left is reserved parking space, sealed off by a heavy chain slung between two bollards. Todd sniffs, rips the bollards out, and slings them towards the sedan.

Todd's car-sized bolo smashes into the back end of the car, partially wrapping around the wheels.

[Using my Binding power again. With my character concept I prefer to narrate it as something he does rather than a pure power. :)

Binding 6; Rolling Coordination 6 + Roll 4 = 10.]

Todd:
[OOC: I like the idea that you just use 'found objects' and superhuman strength to do Binding. It makes the power into a permanent Super-Strength Stunt. :)]

The chain wraps around the spinning axle, reeling in--until the concrete and steel bollard slams into the axle and snaps it! The rear of the sedan hits the pavement, laying a trail of sparks as the vehicle slews out of control toward the exit barricade!

The aquatic hero shakes his head, trying to clear the ringing in his ears and casts a sideways glance at Nereid, "I have seen better and worse days, all things considered."

He then walks over to the elevator shaft and looks at the top, judging how to make his way upwards.

Re: E1S8 - Southern Shore facility - Everyone
Angelfish glances down at her wrist-comm, 15 minutes?  That's all?  Feels like... days  She sends a hurried message back to Ishida-san O.K. and turns to respond to Ty'daal. NO  FOLLOW THEM

She leans into the elevator shaft beside Ty'daal and Neriad, Four, maybe five stories up.  That's just not what this suit was designed for!  And how the heck are Ty'daal and Neriad going to get up there? 

Turning back to Ty'daal, Angelfish types quickly CAN U CLIMB  MUST GO UP

This is nuts, but there's not much choice
  She steps into the elevator shaft and grips the cable with gloves and boots...

(OOC: I'm making the assumption that there is at least one intact cable  I'm not quite sure how to describe what I want to attempt -- basically, Angelfish is going to "climb" the cable using the impellers as "booster jets"...)

Beginning to climb hand-over-hand, Angelfish makes a quick mental calculation and fires to impellers in a carefully controlled burst...

(OOC: Rolling "Coordination"
00:56, Today: Angelfish rolled 1,2 using d6,d6. Jet Propelled Climbing!
Aannd, I really hate the dice roller!  -1 + 6 = 5
Spending 1 Determination to tag Acrobatics (which I suspect will be necessary to keep me from being killed!) gives me a total of +7)

In reply to Ty'daal (msg # 127):

Assistance to ascend? No.
Assistance to ascend quickly, yes. I am in pretty good shape but nothing beyond human, Climbing down made me winded.

So a hand would be greatly appreciated...thank you Ty'daal.

Ty'daal nods, picks up Nereid and begins to ascend up the elevator shaft, leaping from handhold to handhold until he reaches the top.

(10:49, Today: Ty'daal rolled 4,5 using d6,d6. Climbing with a passenger. With Strength that will be a +7)

Angelfish:
[OOC: You don't need to spend Determination to use Acrobatics, it just provides it's +1 when needed. On the other hand, using the impellers to 'fly' counts as a Stunt of your Aquatic Device power, which does require 1 Determination. :) You're actually rolling for the Stunt, not Coordination.]
The single cable still attached to the wrecked elevator below provides some guidance as you rocket up the shaft. Overheat warnings pop up in your helmet-display. The impellers aren't built to drive something as thin as air--yet.

Ty'daal, Nereid:
Nereid, it's quite a ride; Ty'daal holds you in one arm, and launches himself up the elevator shaft! With the webbed fingers of his free hand he grabs protruding braces and girders, hanging on only long enough to brace his feet and leap again!

At the top, the three of you spill out of the freight elevator doors into the underground parking structure, just in time to see Todd total Mr. Shaw's Mercedes S-Class. Shaw, completely panicked, struggles to get out of the sedan and flee!

Meanwhile:
Aboard the fishing boat, Dr. Ishida looks at the green O.K. on his receiver, and grumbles in Japanese. Details, please! He lights another cigarette with the last drag of his current one, and scowls.

Setting Nereid down, Ty'daal approaches the car, one hand slamming into the car door to keep it shut. "Stand down human until we can sort things out."

Ian makes sure he has all the relevant info to the Antarctic location, and then checks for Dr. Taggart's name and boat rentals.

Re: E1S8 - Southern Shore facility - Everyone
Shaw sees Ty'daal's webbed blue hand crumpling the door of his car, and his eyes go wide with panic. He struggles free of his tangled seatbelt and tries to slide across to the passenger side of the car, backing away from Ty'daal.

Ian:
Taggart's name appears in a series of emails from Southern Shore's CEO 'Mr. Forster' to the General Manager of this branch, Delwin Shaw. They're all titled 'Project: Deep Probe', and relate to chartering a large fishing boat, installing special gear on the boat, hiring an underwater demolitions team, and finding an experienced-yet-shady undersea archaeological expert to operate the gear. Taggart was apparently Shaw's idea, approved by 'Forster'.

You trail back the IP address the emails came from, and get a location: Ushuaia, Argentina. There are also shipping-and-receiving records showing that a 'seabed-penetrating detector' was shipped to this building from that same Argentinian town.

In reply to DainXB - GM (msg # 133):

Now that she has Shaw in her line of sight, Nereid approaches and her eyes begin to glow with a faint light and her voice takes on a musical tone.

Shaw, do not be afraid, relax…you are so relaxed…you haven't a care in the world

OOC:

Using Emotion control to take him from afraid to almost zen like calm

Emotion control 3
20:48, Today: Nereid rolled 6,6 using d6,d6 with rolls of 6,6. calm Shaw down.

Ian sends everything he has found to Detective Jones, and then logs off.
A bit more steady in the high heels now, Ian walks towards the car park to meet up with the rest of the team.

Nereid:
[OOC: You've got a Moderate Success!]

Shaw takes a deep breath, and seems to settle down. His eyes, instead of flicking wildly around the garage, settle on Nereid's, reflecting their pale glow.

Mr. Reynolds and his two security guards are keeping their distance--they've never seen anything quite like the group of you before!

Detective Jones looks at Time Keeper. "Thanks for the, ah... timely save." He says, frowning slightly at his own unintentional pun. He nods toward Ty'daal. "Do you know that guy?"

Ty'daal, Angelfish:
A young woman wearing business clothing and wearing a wireless headset totters out of the lobby elevator on her high heels. She looks very self-assured for someone so young.

Re: E1S8 - Southern Shore facility - Everyone
With almost a bored ease, Ty'daal lifts himself on top of the car making his way across the roof then jumps down and looks in the passenger window at Shaw. "Really human? Did you not understand my words?" Then seeing the man relax, he stands upright and nods, "Thank you for your compliance," not knowing it was Nereid's presence that has calmed the man.

As he catches sight of the young woman he casts a look at Angelfish nods in the exec's direction and walks over to her. "You, what is the meaning of all this? Why did you attack that fishing vessel?" Ty'daal is blunt and his assumption vast, no thoughts of subtlety in his mind.

Todd walks around to the back of the car, untangles his improvised bolo, and drops the car.

"See you in a sec. I need to put this back."

The secretary stops and looks at Ty'daal.

"Do you have an appointment? If not we will have to schedule this conversation for a more convenient time. How is later today? Around 4pm? Right now I am currently engaged in making an escape."

Ian lowers her glasses on her nose and looks at Ty'daal over them...

"Hmmmm... okay, it was apparently a robo-squid, or possibly a fleet of robo-squid, based in Antartica and controlled by one Emperor Penguin that is most likely responsible for your missing fish boat.
Now, if you could please rescue me from this place. Eeeek! Eeeek! Help!"

Detective Jones nods to Time Keeper. "I'm OK. Gotta learn to roll with the punches at this job." He watches Ian's host and Ty'daal. "You're sure he's one of the good guys, right?"

Still watching, he fishes in the pocket of his khaki shorts and pulls out his phone. "I'd better call this one in..." He says, shaking his head.

[OOC: Wrap up for Issue #1.]

Detective Jones's call to the Multinational Investigation Bureau brings three black and nearly-unmarked SUVs to the Southern Shore Corporation's parking garage in short order. Delwin Shaw, who remains extraordinarily calm, is taken into custody for questioning.

Detective Jones debriefs you all, getting your superhero noms de guerre, and brief reports of your actions on the property. He skips over Ian, knowing that he will have the opportunity to go over his information in more detail later.

Nereid, Todd:
It's not until MIB agents corner Mr. Reynolds and his security team, and begin the process of gaining access to the lower levels, that Detective Jones realizes that he is also your ride. "I'll drop you wherever you like--and I've still got that... thing... of Taggart's in my trunk."

He surveys the parking area, and shakes his head. "I've got a feeling that this is just the beginning..."

[OOC: We'll pick up with E2S1, E2S2, and E2S3!]
