This chapter will begin with Nyx (Boost) and The Doorman riding to the meetup; I'm laying out some info that I would otherwise keep secret for the sake of open rping. Everyone other than Boost, please keep posting in Ch3 until I say you're here.



Nyx: A honk outside announces Mike's arrival. In the five seconds it takes you to get to your front door, he honks ten more times. You bristle at his obnoxious use of his car horn, but that's Mike. If you want to find out about this team he's putting together, you'll just have to deal with his childish behavior you figure.

"Seriously dude, didn't I tell you I'd be here at 5:15? It's past that and you STILL weren't ready yet. God, if I didn't like Norm so much..."

You glance at the clock; it's 5:16. You try to ask just how long it will take to get to...wherever the hell you're going....but Mike continues his little tyrade as he pulls away from the curb with a squeal of his tires.

After a few blessed moments of silence, Mike speaks up, "Listen man, I'm sorry, but these guys are the real deal, ok? Don't screw this up for me...uh...us, er...you I mean. You know? Don't want to be late to the biggest day of your life Al!" He slaps you a bit too hard on the shoulder in his obnoxious display of friendship. You refrain from punching him for calling you Al, if for no other reason than he's driving and you're pretty sure you'd kill him and wreck the car. Nova or not, he's a fragile looking guy.

Despite wanting throw Mike through the windshield, knowing full well he'd be able to, Alex, or as he's come to call himself, Nyx, refrains. Instead he draws a sip from one of the four canteens he has strapped around his shoulders, Real deal... he thinks, What the hell is that supposed to mean?

Nyx sits in silence for a few more moments before asking, "So who are these 'real deal' Novas? Why are you gathering them together now?"

"They're a bunch of heavy hitters, five of 'em. Man Al, they walked right into a building full of dudes with machine guns and wiped the place clean with 'em. Like ten seconds flat."

You raise an eyebrow at his claim. "Grab that laptop, I've got the feed on there. Check it out!"

You rummage through the junk on his floorboard until you find his laptop; a minute later you're watching a hi-res video, apparantly shot from a high vantage point at night, of Horizon City. Suddenly an alert flashes on the menu to the left, Shots Fired.

The camera quickly spins around then focuses in on a building in what you assume to be the warehouse district of HC. Little blips mark the locations of gunfire but they quickly disappear as the novas clear the building.

Basically Nyx can see everything that happened outside; at the end, he gets a clear picture of the five man nova team as they chase down the remaining goons before they run back inside and are seen for the last time.

"See I told you man, awesome!"

"Um, so why are you putting a team together Mike?" you ask nervously as it dawns on you just how real the situation is. Are you ready for all this? Gunbattles and superheroics?

"Well, I've been watching these guys, hoping they were as badass as I thought. After that fight, the cops are all over the place looking for them. See, they have the same vid I do and it's only a matter of time before they ID them. That being the case, it's time The Doorman steps in and turns them into a certified government operation, above the law and all that."

Oh god, he's referring to himself in third person now?

Great... Nyx thinks as he rolls his eyes, "Cut it with the Al stuff. When we meet them, use my Nova.net name."

Nyx thinks for a while about whether he's ready to be going against machine guns or more. Drawing some water from his canteen, he passes the time shaping it into different objects, stars, cubes, simple stuff first. As he goes on he practices more complex constructs, by the time he's done there are six miniature human figures standing on the dashboard, each of the Novas he saw in the video, and himself, all standing in action poses. He smirks to himself as he lets them splash out of existence and then calls all of the water back into this canteens.

"Yah, no problem Nit."

"Nyx."

"That's what I said, Nyx. Anyway, we're almost there. They should be showing up within the next half hour or so. Grab that case from the backseat. When you get out, set it on the ground and open it up. I'll handle the rest."

You look in the back and see an unmarked black metal case. You grab it and flip it open; it appears to be some hi-tech computer married to a projection system of some sort with numerous cameras, lasers, and speakers arrayed in it.

"What is this?"

"It'll allow me to talk to you and the team without exposing myself."

"What the hell, you're not going to wait here with me? This is your idea Mike!"

"Doorman. The Doorman. Not Mike, got it? You may be better off pretending not to know me. No, on second thought, better not lie to these guys, they may roast you. Yah, just tell them you know me as The Doorman. For God's sake, don't use my real name Al."

"Nyx, a**hole."

"Whatever, get out, we're here. Don't forget the case, I'm counting on you."

Before you can close the door, Mike peels out and speeds further up the winding mountain road, quickly dissappearing from sight. Looking around, you're at some abandoned mining operation from the looks of it. A few rusted tin buildings dot the side of the mountain and a boarded up mine entrance is off to the left of the buildings. Hazrd signs and Danger: Keep Out signs cover everything.

A cool breeze blows the dust around and a coyote howls in the distance.

"Great."

Nyx is there first, so if there's anything you want to do, go for it. After that, I'll have all the guys show up at about the same time.

Nyx takes out his cellphone and flips it open. He sends a message to Norman, "Ever have a drink go down the wrong pipe? If your cousin doesn't watch it, he's going to become very familiar with the sensation!" Norman has become accustom to Nyx's ranting about Mike being an a**hole.

Closing his phone and looking around again, he closes his eyes and feels for a nearby source of water, I just had to get water powers in a desert city... Nyx takes another sip from one of his canteens, a small one.

Unfortunately it hasn't rained in months; not even a lonely mud puddle remains in this dusty mountain outpost.

I'll post the team's arrival tomorrow!

Of course... Nyx thinks to himself as he notes the dryness, Mike would pick a spot that completely cuts me off from most of my abilities. Thankfully I thought ahead, as he thinks this, he makes sure the four canteens are securely fastened to him, two on each side.

Nyx: After a few moments of standing in the dark, you find a table that's probably older than you are next to a tin building. You set the heavy case on the table and pop it open. Lights and fans come on line; a moment later, a holographic projection pops up, flickering and the color's a bit off, but a neat bit of tech nonetheless. If only it wasn't Mike's dumb mug that popped up. You can't help but laugh when you realize he's donned a cheap fake beard, wig, and sunglasses. Not missing a beat, he begins to blather on about how awesome he is for creating the hologram and how lucky you are that he's hooking you up, blah blah blah...

Nycto and Fenris: Both of you arrive at about the same time, finding hiding spots among the old tin buildings. Your attention is drawn to a flickering blue light. You two make your way around to get a view of what's making the light and you see a young man sitting at a table with numerous canteens strapped to his body. His skin has a strange sheen to it and almost looks blue (I think that's accurate Boost, change it if it's not). Sitting on the table is an open black case that is projecting the image of a slim teenage kid with a ridiculous disguise on. The hologram kid looks very fidgity and appears to be getting on the "real" guy's nerves.

Javi and Overdrive: You guys wind your way up the mountain in Javi's car. Nearing the location on the map, Javi pulls over a mile or so from the old mine to wait for Nycto's all clear.

(Mostly accurate) On any further investigation on the young man's appearance, you notice that his skin color seems to shift, giving the impression of flowing water, following the pattern you would expect a circulatory system to follow.

Nycto summons 2 swordsman into hiding, away from the blue figure.

Then he texts Javi and Overdrive "One man here. Doesn't seem a trap."

He leaves the hidding post and asks "Are you The Doorman?"

Javier reads the text and informs Overdrive [I'm assuming Harrisonis in Hero ID], "We're up. Only one guy there, accordyng to Nick-Toe."

He drives the car to a closer vantage point, close enough for a get-away but not too close. Exiting the car, he nods to his compadre, "Let's split up and come in separately, just in case."

Javier's wearing his usual attire, a shirt, unbuttoned and untucked, over a "wife-beater" undershirt and slacks. He heads off down the walk to the meeting spot, slipping into the old familiar strut from his gangbanging days.

After Nycto approaches, Fenris exits his hiding spot too from the other side and prowls closer like a circling pack of wolves.

"Sir, yes sir" Harrison answers with a salute.
He gets out of the car and shifts to his battle form.
Once done, he simply super-jumps to the rendez-vous point.

As the shadowy figure emerges from hiding, Nyx resists the urge to take a defensive stance, recognizing the figure from the video.
Quote:
He leaves the hidding post and asks "Are you The Doorman?"

Alex stifles a laugh, "Nah," he says, "Not at all, he is," he jerks his thumb towards the glowing blue jerk.

As the other three emerge, Alex does begin to tighten up a bit, especially when the the beast like one arrives, his presence a bit unsettling. He doesn't buy into these guys being able to rip him apart... at least one on one, but there are four of them, and that's a different ball game. Trying to play it cool, as the armored one lands from his massive jump, he says, "Nice entrance..."
