...'Cousin on a raft.'  Yeah, that figured.

While she waited for her food, Nicole took in everyone else who was here.

There were several larger men, like the bus driver. They were whispering amongst themselves.

Well, if it was a private conversation, that was fine.

If they were looking her way, though...

Troubling, but it wasn't worth worrying about just a few glances.  She ate her food.

It was pretty good. The driver hadn't been lying there.

That was good, at least.  She finished her dinner, tipped well enough, and headed back to the hotel.  Tomorrow, she had people to meet, if nothing went weird.

Of course, things often went weird.

You see the three men from the diner following you, trying to be sneaky.

Nicole turned around.

"Gentlemen," she said, "I'm not looking for company.  Move along.  Don't do something you'll regret briefly and painfully."

"...Really," said Nicole.  There were three of them; charging in might be bad.  Better to keep her distance and fight from range for now, so she did.  Her eyes glowed with occult power, and tattoos hidden on her body glowed purple through her clothes.

"UNLEASH THE SWARM!" she declared, and her demon-hands flew out, multiplying, biting, tearing...

Unleash the Swarm! ((9,8,5,8,2,10,4,5)).

That's 4 successes; it has Multi-Attack, so damage depends on the defense roll on their end.

One of the men is knock flying, the other two took out saps and attacked.

(OOC: Defend against two attacks. One with two success and one with one. They do one damage each if they hit.)

19:00, Today: Nicole Hellsmith rolled 26 using 5d10 with rolls of 10,2,2,9,3.  Dodge.

19:00, Today: Nicole Hellsmith rolled 28 using 5d10 with rolls of 7,2,9,5,5.  Dodge.


Nicole skipped out of the way of the attacks, then spun around to unleash her demon fists on the nearest enemy!

Demon Punch, setting up a combo if that works out.
19:06, Today: Nicole Hellsmith rolled 54 using 8d10 ((9,3,5,10,9,5,8,5)).  That's 4 successes; I'm going to assume a hit to roll damage to test that mechanic.
19:07, Today: Nicole Hellsmith rolled 21 using 3d10 ((5,6,10)).

So, 1 damage, I guess.

Another of the goons was sent flying, landing in a bundle of trash cans. The last one raised his sap high an attacked.

5d10 ((7,2,8,6,8)) 3 successes!

Nicole danced around the attack and went for mighty kick to the thug's head.

20:01, Today: Nicole Hellsmith rolled 14 using 2d10 ((5,9)). 1.

One of her demon hands picked one up by the collar; the other slapped it awake.

"All right, bub," she said.  "What's the big idea, picking on a poor girl just eating a fish sandwich in peace?"

The thug started cowering.

"Y-you're a stranger in town, the church doesn't like outsiders!"

"Yeah?  Well, I'm here by invitation, so the church can just back off.  See?" said Nicole.  Tough-guy mannerisms seemed like the way to go with these thugs.

"You do that," said Nicole, and she went back to her hotel room.  And she blocked the doors to it before bedtime, too.
