E3S9 - Container Port - Angelfish, Time Keeper
Angelfish:
The world is a blurr on all sides as Time Keeper runs! You get the impression of streets and cars and buildings rushing past--and you suffer sudden disorientation as he runs straight up the side of a building!

Angelfish, Time Keeper:
The Horizon Limited building towers over the stacked containers at the perimeter of the port, and gives an excellent view Westward toward the deepwater channel and the docked cargo ships--including the bright orange Amphora Peapod, surrounded by flashing lights and a cordon of HMSA and port emergency vehicles. There are vent stacks and air handlers scattered across the roof, as well as flat-topped structures that house elevator machinery. A cluster of antennae sprout from the northwest corner of the roof--cell-network horns, sattelite dishes, and less-identifiable things point in all directions.

Looking East, you have a lovely view toward downtown Akamai City.
Attis Agricultural Biotech, a sprawling campus of buildings covered with greenery hanging from every balcony and across every curving roof, is in the foreground, surrounded by low-rise financial institutions. Beyond Attis is the DTN News building. Even the tall broadcast tower on it's roof is dwarfed by the mighty SolarGenic Technologies tower, a chisel-tipped spire in the center of Downtown. The angled surface of it's upper floors is covered with black-and-silver solar converters. Beyond the tower, you can just glimpse parts of the Grove, and the university campus.

TechKnight stands at the edge of the clustered antennae, his silver-edged black armor blending in with the shiny strut-work of their supports.

Time Keeper:
[OOC: Test Coordination vs TechKnight's Awareness of 4 to surprise him with your arrival!]

Time Keeper:
[OOC: Determined Effort! You now have a Moderate Success!]
There's no sign from TechKnight that he is aware of your arrival--he seem's fixated on watching the HMSA hazmat teams inspecting the vessel.

Ian, Ty'daal:
As Detective Jones predicted, the HMSA, port security, and the local PD have set up a safety perimeter around the entire port area. He flashes his Multinational Investigation Bureau badge to the uniforms at the hastily-erected barricade, and works his Impala past the cordon. The officer peers in surprise at Ty'daal and the bikini-clad teenager in the back seat.

"I don't have a hazmat suit--and Ian, you don't either, so this is as close as I'm getting." He looks at Ty'daal. "I don't know if that stuff will affect you or not, but be careful. Ian, you be especially careful; that's my neighbor Dr. Schaeffer's daughter you brain-jacked. She'll probably think it's 'rad' or whatever teenagers say these days, but if she gets hurt theres gonna be Hell to pay."

To your right are office buildings at the edge of the port, mostly shipping companies. The Horizon Limited building is the tallest of the lot. To your left are stacks upon stacks of cargo containers, then cranes, then the docks themselves.

Time Keeper  set Angel down on the roof and instantly shot off across the distance between himself TechKnight.

As he got within striking distance he pulled the time stream around him and slowing time around him he was able to make multiple strikes at his target.

OOC:08:27, Today: Time Keeper rolled -1 using 2d6-7. Super Speed roll (7). Total 6

Time Keeper:
As time slows around you the air seems to thicken; it's like throwing punches through jello, but you connect soldily with TechKnights armor half-a-dozen times before the effect of inertia catches up to him, driving him over the edge of the roof!

Ian, Ty'daal:
As you exit Detective Jones' Impala, there are sudden gasps around you. People point skyward at a dark figure tumbling off the roof of the Horizon Limited building!

[OOC: Angelfish, Ian, and Ty'daal can act. Then TechKnight, Detective Jones, and the bystanders will go.]

Stepping form the car, Ian points and says,
"Ty'daal, catch that person!"
Ian turns to an onlooker.
"Oh... my... what is happening? Like, I must inform my social network of the amazing experience I am having via a Twerp, or possibly a FriendFace post."

The onlooker, a man in a short-sleeved blue shirt and a yellow hard-hat, replies. "Some kind of gas leak, maybe caused by a superhero, I heard. Now there's Feds, news crews... Whole place is a madhouse. The port's evacuated--I can't even get to my car to go home; they won't let anybody into the parking lot." The man lifts his hard-hat to wipe sweat off his brow, glancing upward at the same time. "That guy! He's falling!" He shouts, suddenly more alarmed than annoyed.
