    Laura shakes her head again trying to fix her finger on what is wrong, but nothing can be wrong, everything seems perfect.

    OOC: I'm assuming that in walking in openly Enoch receives the well-informed info, but not the DC20 insights. If I'm wrong please let me know and I'll edit.


    Enoch winks at Laura and then smirks at the poker players. "So stop if I'm leaping to conclusions. But you holes are in a town where prostitution is perfectly legal, yet are all hot to gamble killer terrorist slave girls. Now if we can somehow put aside how utterly and completely wrong that is, was there ever a time when this wasn't going to blow up in your faces?"

    <Swanky Hotel, Enoch/Laura/Katrina>

    Two of the guys jump up, drawing guns. The warden looks up, eyes wide at first before realizing it's just one person. The psychic (Chris) doesn't bat an eye, and the fifth man sits frozen and wide-eyed.

    "Unless you got some federal swat team we DONT own sitting outside that door, sonny, then the only thing about to blow here is you... getting blown away..." The warden frowns and sets his cards down but doesn't stand. "Now I'm a reasonable man so I'll give you a choice. Either we shoot you and nobody ever finds the body, or these guys escort you to another room you can jump out of.. least that way your family'll have a body to bury. So what'll it be?"


    OOC: Sorry Darwin, I'd forgotten to include Katrina in the tags last time, but she is indeed one of the 'slave' girls (Not mind controlled). Feel free to act as you wish, though your character would have no equipment/gear on her except for some skimpy/slutty clothing... Though there's plenty of materials to sample nearby, and I assume she stored something useful before commiting herself to her 'role'.
    BBS - The circumstances are rather alarming and distracting, and Chris' concentration falters.
    You get a new save:
    16+ breaks free completely
    11+ back to only slightly charmed. In game terms, she would be Staggered (Dazed and hindered), and unable to take actions against Chris, but otherwise free to act.
    VV - Yes by heading straight in you can get all the well informed information without the perception checks.
    Intelligence is the capacity to understand old Ideas.
    Imagination is the ability to come up with New Ideas.

    Eagles may soar, but Weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

    The intrusion of the new man catches Laura by surprise with his wink, and gave Chris a distraction. A distraction more then enough for Laura to snap out of it, and brings her back to reality. She gives a deathly glare at Chris, but also notices armed guards.

    OOC: Wondering if I could get a surprise round to charge Chris

    Enoch steps out of the line of fire while leaving his older illusory self standing still and talking, "Funny you should mention that Mr. Grey. About the SWAT team and all ..."

    Enoch pauses dramatically, while checking to see if any of the thugs track his actual movement rather than continuing to cover the illusion. If he doesn't have any guns pointed at him, he'll have the 'SWAT team' rush in, mostly female, and bristling with SMG's and shotguns. He won't impose the illusion on Laura (since she's wanted for terrorism and might freak out). But he will have the illusionary agents shout over anyone who might see through the trick and try to give warning. "Drop your weapons! Drop your weapons NOW!"

    OOC: If we can assume that Katrina has attuned to steel before going undercover she will move in closer to one of the guys with a gun as subtly as she can.

    If she does not have any attunement she will attempt to attune to a hard substance. Before approaching the bad guys.


    Katrina attempts to hide her true identity while moving into position.

    Katrina begins edging closer to the table, realizing that it's about to hit the fan and preparing to go metal. She bumps the coffee table, however, knocking over a glass of water and drawing the attention of almost everybody.
    Fortunately, her fumble is covered by the sudden influx of the swat team, which draws everybody's attention back to the door.
    One of the gunners lowers his gun a few inches, squinting at them confused. He tries to say something but can't be heard over the shouting of the SWAT.
    Grey and the other gunner go wide-eyed, Grey stumbling out of his chair while the second gunner starts to put his gun down.

    Chris finally moves, standing and turning, waving his arm in the direction of the swat team. They turn into mist and blow away.
    "You think you can come into MY town and start playing Mind Games, kid? I'm the KING of mind games!" Chris looks at Enoch's illusory self - apparently he hadn't seen through that, at least.
    Before he can finish his speech though, a roar comes from the side as Laura charges across the room, taking advantage of the confusion to slam into Chris.

    OOC:
    I really hate how you cant see rolls while replying/editing. I keep having to open a second copy of the page to see what the rolls are..
    OK, so Grey is prone, one Gunner is currently unarmed, the other is deciding who to shoot. You guys need initiative rolls!
    Also Katrina needs a will save(21 I believe) to know that the swat team is illusory, otherwise she thinks they're real, since Enoch has no reason to let her in on it.

    I decided that with everything going on, Chris was auto-hit by Laura's charge.
    BBS - On that subject, while I was checking how much damage Laura does I found your sheet a bit confusing - you have strength listed as 7, and your melee damage is listed as 9 (3 base +6 str).
    What's the 3 base from and why is the bonus from strength different from your listed strength?

    She drapes herself onto Uomo's lap and looks him in the eyes "Getting in up top wouldn't be too hard if, say.. you had someone on the inside helping you.." She smiles as she grinds against him "But you'd have to find your own way downstairs."
    Cassandra glances at Uomo, but decides that his question is practically rhetorical.

    She nods slowly at the woman's words. Risky as hell, but a hell of a lot better than storming the front gates. God though, this could go wrong in so many ways.

    "Okay," she says, "It's a risk, but no story worth a damn ever broke without risks. Can we get in touch with you again once I talk to my editor and let him know what's going on? We'll need to set up a time when all this happens."
