"Okay, so here's the deal," Cyclone said over the intercom. "We want to see what you're capable of so they'll be a bit of a gauntlet to go through. Ready, set and go."

Several robots rise from the floor and advance towards you.

(OOC: You get the first action, go.)

"Got it!" said Goodwitch.  She was nervous, but now was the time to be firm.  She spoke a Word, and something that looked like a curving green line tipped with claws lashed out.  It wasn't that good a shot, but missing didn't stop it from returning to the attack...

All-Out Attack 2.  A terrible 17, but this is Homing, so if that's a miss, it will continue to attack next round.

That was one robot down.

As if encouraged by her initial success, more serpentine shapes emerged from Goodwitch, stretching over the battlefield.

  21:23, Today: Goodwitch rolled 29,28,21,25,25,16,24 using d20+12,d20+12,d20+12,d20+12,d20+12,d20+12,d20+12 ((17,16,9,13,13,4,12)).

So that's a lot of hits; the first two are Crits, too.  How many robots are there?

Goodwitch made short work of the robots.

"Not bad, not bad," Cyclone said as the robots faded from view and a large obstacle course appeared with crazy things like giant saw blades and laser beams. "Don't worry, it's all hard light holograms, it'll hurt, but won't do any real damage."

(OOC: Give me four various rolls.)

Goodwitch began to float across the room, using careful study of patterns, figuring out how the test designer thought, the summoning of a gigantic entity resembling a wheel covered in alien eyes, and the sheer protective power of the Scaled Robes.

22:44, Today: Goodwitch rolled 34,27,14,21 using d20+15,d20+15,d20+10,d20+15 ((19,12,4,6)).

You manage to dive and dip through most of the hazards without much of a problem. A giant saw blade manages to catch you as you almost zip past it, but it doesn't do any damage other than giving you a mild electric shock. When you were finished the room powered down and the entrance opened.

"So, how was it?" asked Goodwitch, looking around eagerly.

The team came through the door and stood there silently for a moment before being quiet seems to be too much for Star Fist.

"You did great!" she said as she hurried over and threw an arm around your shoulder.

Dorothy blushed at the attention.

"That was really all right?" she asked.

Star Fist nodded.

"Yeah, nobody's done it perfectly yet," Chrome said.

"It's pretty challenging," said Goodwitch.  "I'm lucky that the Scaled Robes are so tough-- it's kind of a weird protective spell, but it came really naturally to me."

"The setting we used isn't designed to do more than give a painful shock at this setting," Cyclone said.

"Enough of that," Pseudo said as they waved on of their hands. "So, are you going to join us? We'll have pizza."

"Well, sure!" said Goodwitch.  Her shoulder still felt warm where Starfist had touched her.

"The pizza's just a bonus, you know.  I want to use this power to do good things for people."

"The pizza is a nice bonus," Pseudo said.

"Eating pizza with everyone sounds pretty cool," she admitted.  "So, um, what are the rules now?  Do we all live here?  How do we handle duties and chores and things?"

Hopefully, with a full squad of teammates, she wouldn't have to do nearly as many chores as Mme. Gauthier made her do.

"...and can we swap stories, too?  I don't know that much about any of you."

"You can live here if you want. Star Fist and Pseu do. Duties are shared and that includes things like monitor duty," Chrome said. "As for my story, I was in a horrible accident and my dad put my brain in this robot body."

"I was raised in an arena," Star Fist said. "I had heard stories of this planet from my human grandfather and decided that I would escape and come here."

"I had a weird reaction near a strange artifact while on a field trip at an archeology dig site," Cyclone said.

"I'm not sure what to say," Pseudo said. "I'm not sure what I am, but I know I first gained sapience in an abandoned mall and gained more and more intelligence when exposed to human culture."

"Woooooooah," said Goodwitch, eyes huge at their stories.  "That's, um... most of you had really a rougher time than I did.

"I was always kind of different, as far back as I can remember.  I never get sick, and I've always just kind of known whatever language I hear or read.  But then, back when I was thirteen, this weird thing happened, and I walked into this really old building, and there was this strange, deep vibration that went right through me, and I saw these weird visions that didn't make any sense, and then it just stopped.  But after that, I started to see and feel weird things, and I could see weird auras around people.

"So there was this one lady around town who had this major aura, and so did her house and her bicycle and things, so I went up to her and asked her about what was going on.  And it turns out that she's, like, this mystic scholar!  And I guess I turn out to have this natural talent for magic.  But only certain kinds of magic.  The stuff you saw in that room was easy for me, but it took me a while to learn how to levitate or light up a room.  So, she kind of taught me how to use my magic.  And, well, here I am."

She paused, thinking about a few things that had happened.

"...I, um, think it would be better if I stayed here, if that's all right.  Sometimes, people or... uh... things come looking for me.  I don't want my mom to get hurt."

"Hey, don't worry about it," Cyclone said. "The Magician put up some mystic defenses on the headquarters for us."

"Enough of the wallowing, it is now time for the pizza!" Star Fist said as she dialed her phone.

"That sounds like a great idea," said Goodwitch.  "Let's celebrate!"

It was certainly worth celebrating for her, at least.

And so, lots of pizza was ordered and many movies were watched late into the night. The rest of the team falls asleep with the giant TV one. Your eyes are feeling heavy and soon you are asleep.

You stand in a white room, but in a moment it is filled with a formless something.

"I have found you," it said.
