  1. As the elevator descended, Annette made no conversation, adding to the tense atmosphere despite the occasional glance and smile that was meant to be reassuring. The glamorous teen was far from reassured - though she sensed no deception or ill-intent from the cultured Æon representative there was a creeping sensation that the elevator was dropping into a pit of terrible revelation, and Annette was not happy about what she was about to reveal. The two lovely women, one neatly turned out, cultured and elegant, and the other regal glamour and sex appeal personified moved from the elevator and through the halls of the Project to Annette's office, passing the large glass windows of the control center and the labs along the way. "I'm getting a lot of pressure from our science people to ask some of you to volunteer for tests." Annette said, more as a distraction than because she felt it was important - at least, that was the impression Marissa gained. "Right now, I'm refusing to ask until they clear Branch 9 to release details on Site B." "Might be an idea for them to hurry." Marissa stated casually. "I know my brother, and I know the others. Sooner or later they will forget about asking nicely." Annette glanced at her, nodding slightly. "That was my impression, too." she agreed in a quiet voice, opening her door and motioning Marissa through. "Please, grab a seat." As the teen dream complied, Æon's woman-on-the-ground went around to the other side of the sleek black desk that, Marissa knew from prior experience, contained enough high-tech gadgetry to cause Sean to mess his panties. Pressing a few keys on the touch-sensitive surface caused lights to coruscate into life as the holographic projection system activated and threw up a monitor screen which rotated towards Marissa. "As you know, the Project has surveillance cameras all over Shelly, installed whilst Doctor Cook ran the show." Annette began, her dark eyes on Marissa as she tapped a few more keys. "These days, at my orders, surveillance on specific individuals is only carried out with good cause and authorisation from myself or Major Taggart. Otherwise the surveillance section of the Project is on standby. Cameras are recording, but no-one monitors or goes over the footage unless we see an adequate need." "Why do I get the impression this is a lead up to something I won't like much?" Marissa's eyes narrowed at the older woman, who sighed and pressed a final touch-key, bringing up a camera view of Marissa leaving the empty office that served as, so far as she knew, Enterich's meeting spot if not his base of operations. She was in mid-stride, Marshal Marshall watching her from the doorway as her pleated skirt swung enticingly from her hips. "I routed the feeds here covertly and kept an eye on you." Annette stated. "All I wanted to do was ensure you would enter and leave safely - there's no cameras inside the building, so intelligence on the meeting was not the objective. However... I did spot something after you left I think you need to see." She sat down, motioning to Marissa to keep watching the screen. Frowning, the radiant brunette narrowed her eyes at Annette, then went back to watching the screen. She saw herself get into the Mercedes and drive off, with Marshall watching her from the doorway in a way that was faintly gratifying. Then the handsome marshal went inside, and all was quiet for a bit. She looked expectantly at Annette Giles, but the other woman's eyes were on the screen, and so Marissa forced herself to keep watching. Finally, after perhaps ten minutes, the door opened and out stepped Dale and Marshall, speaking quietly but unhappily. Judging from their body language and gestures, Marshall was infinitely less happy about whatever they were talking about, whereas Dale seemed to radiate resigned dislike. They talked for a few minutes by the car, and then the office door opened again... Marissa stared. Someone - or something - had exited the office door. It had opened, and whoever had done so was the focus of the two rogue marshals attention. But there was no image on the camera... No, there was something. It was a smudge, roughly the size and shape of a person, little more than a distortion in the air like a heat shimmer. It put her in mind of... of... Jason's forcefield, only without a person inside it. The shimmer-smudge stood there outside the office, apparently speaking to the marshals briefly judging from their nods and reactions, then as they turned to get into their car the smudge turned and moved away along the sidewalk at a walking pace, though its movement could best be described as drifting. The camera feed followed it - though Marissa was pretty sure by now that the It was a He and the He was Enterich - until the smudge turned down an alleyway. The screen then split into two cameras, one covering each end of the alley.. but the shimmering presence did not exit the alley it had turned down. "You can see why I showed you this." Annette Giles said quietly as the recording came to an end. "I kept the cameras focused on that alley for half an hour longer, by the way. Nothing came out." Her hand trembled a little as she tapped a button, resetting the recording. "If you want to see it again, just ask. But now the question arises - who exactly, or what exactly, was that?"

  3. Now available in PDF from DriveThruRPG: Yugman’s Guide to Ghelspad, Part 4! Pay Heed to the Wisdom of Yugman the Sage A century and a half after the Divine War, the titans lay defeated and scattered across Scarn and beyond. As the people of Ghelspad work to build a new world on the war-torn remnants of a fallen paradise, new heroes rise, and new threats emerge. Yugman the Sage brings an overview of these new heroes and villains, as well as the tools they use to rise to power. A Land Where Legends Walk Drawing enthusiastically on Greek mythology, the revised and re-imagined Scarred Lands nonetheless retains its place as a modern fantasy RPG setting. This is a world shaped by gods and monsters, and only the greatest of heroes can expect to be counted among them. The most populous continent of Scarn, Ghelspad, plays host to vast unexplored regions, hides unsolved riddles from ancient cultures, and taunts adventures with the promise of undiscovered riches hidden among the ruins of older civilizations. Yet the myths of the Scarred Lands are relatively recent events. The effects of the Titanswar still ripple through the world, and the heroines and villains of many of these stories are part of living memory, if not still alive themselves. Also available as a Virtual Tabletop download from DriveThruRPG: Hunt for the Red Widow! Hunt for the Red Widow is a short encounter designed starting Talents in the Trinity Continuum Core setting. When a renowned but mysterious thief known as the Red Widow steals an ancient artifact from the Æon Society’s vaults, it is up to the party to track her down and recover the device. She is heading to an old ruin said to unlock the artifact’s true power. Can the heroes reach her in time? Inside you’ll find: A short encounter for use with the Trinity Continuum Corebook. Two new antagonists: The Red Widow, and her minions, known simply as “Ghosts.” Virtual tabletop tokens are included to represent the antagonists. Two maps, ready to be uploaded into your virtual tabletop platform of choice. New Anomaly Powers.

  7. Meanwhile "Kid has a lot of friends." Marshall noted. Dale grunted noncommittedly. The two marshals were belly-down on the edge of the woods that bordered the cleared ground surrounding the main buildings of the Bannon (formerly Wilson) Farm. Technically they were trespassing, not that either of them cared overmuch. After all, each had enough sins on their docket that mere trespassing was not really a consideration. Murdering a kid, on the other hand... "Sheriff's kid, the Allen girl, three flavors of redhead - one of which is the Keane girl - a corn-fed blonde we don't know... and both Jauntsen twins." Marshall went on, clearly keeping up the commentary to ease his own nerves. Dale spared a moment from taking snaps through a long telephoto lens to give him a sour look, prompting her partner to ask "What?" "'Three flavors of redhead?" she asked acidly. "Little Miss Backstabbing Bratz Doll not enough for your spank bank?" "Honestly?" Marshall looked back through his binoculars. "She scares the crap outta me." "Pussy." Dale sneered, smirking as she took another wide-angle shot of the dirt road leading up before sighing. "The farm looks like a clusterfuck waiting to happen. There's bound to be guns there. Dad's in some local militia. And fuck knows what's in the barn. Open ground, no way to approach without being seen..." "The kid doesn't need guns, remember what the boss said?" Marshall's smirk was audible as he squinted through the binoculars. "He's tele-whatsit and can kill with his mind." "Telekinetic. Read a book, genius. Enterich wouldn't say it if he didn't think it was true." Dale stated, though there was some doubt in her voice as she said it. Marshall looked at her with a raised brow. "Psychic powers. Really?" Dale shrugged uncomfortably at the query, then reached down and adjusted the strap of her underarm holster. She didn't really believe it either, but Enterich had been very insistent that the boy was dangerous. "Something put that older kid in the hospital." she said defensively, scowling at her partner. "Probably Bannon recruited the Allister kid to shell out the actual beating. Then the sheriff covered it up cos it was his son." Marshall said dismissively. "Small town shit." "You say so." Dale looked at the screen of her digital camera, flicking through the previews of the shots she'd gotten. "I still say farm is a no-go." "Yeah." Marshall conceded. "We should get him on the school run. He's most likely to be alone then. Flash the lights, flash the badge, wind down your window kid... Then pop-pop." He looked uneasy, considering the flippancy of his delivery. "Dale?" "Yeah?" "Doesn't feel right, killing a kid." She once more looked at her partner, only this time her eyes were grave, her expression somber. "You want to tell the boss that?" "Fuck no." Marshall said with feeling. Dale held his gaze a moment longer, then her expression softened a touch. "Me either." she said simply. She paused a second. "We need to be careful, though. Even if the psychic powers thing is bullshit, Enterich said the kid is dangerous, so he probably is. Plenty of sixteen year old killers out there, sport. Given his daddy, he's likely carrying a weapon in the car at least." Dale took one more shot of the farm and the cars drawn up around it, then started to shuffle back from the edge of the bushes. "Let's go while they're all in the barn." "Right." The two of them belly-crawled backwards until they were out of sight, only two flattened down patches of grass any indication they had been there at all.

  10. Refreshing this thread. Down below, I'd like people to address any RP elements, Aspirations, or specific interactions they want to see happen for their character. The purpose of this is so that players can look at one another's wishlist and help each other achieve character development goals, however minor. So, jot down your character development wishlist and let's see how it goes.
  11. The Bannon Farm, Sunday 1st September, Noon. "I think this is them?" The dust cloud at the foot of the dirt road where it joined the highway caught Kat's eye as the petite, boyish redhead stood and moved to the edge of the porch, craning her neck to see. She squinted, eyes still not used to the glare of the late summer sun here in Montana, and took a sip from her bottle of water. "Finally." Courtney sighed from where she stayed firmly in the shade. Her brown eyes went distant for a moment, and she nodded. "Yeah, Devin, the Allen girl, Jason and the unshaven hippy - Oh my god!" she sat bolt upright. "Marissa was right!" "Um, what?" Kat blinked. She didn't much like Courtney's dismissive, bitchy way of talking about Autumn, who'd been perfectly cool and nice so far as the French import was concerned, and she decided to say so. "You shouldn't talk crap about Autumn like that. What's she ever done to you?" Courtney blinked, then a contrite expression crossed her face. "Nothing, I guess. It's just... I dunno, habitual bitchiness?" "Well, it's not cool." Kat said firmly. "And isn't likely to get you invited back here. So what was Marissa right about?" "Oh, nothing." Courtney waved a hand dismissively. "Just some bitchy stuff. You're right. I should probably keep a lid on it." The more-glamorous redhead's smile was hard for her to hide, though. "I can tell you Marissa's going to totally go Evil Queen about this, though. We're talking poison apples." "Whatever." Kat sighed, turning from her sometimes-irritating new friend to watch as the sleek Ducatti and the grumbling V8 Charger disappeared into the small vehicle barn. Courtney had offered Kat a ride up to the lonely, remote farmstead, which had been deserted when they had gotten here. They'd been told the meeting would be around noon, though, so they had hung out on the porch together, talking idly until Kat had sighted the dust cloud. "Who else is coming?" she asked, eyeing the figures exiting the barn-garage, talking to one another as they began heading over to the house. "Well, Sean isn't, you said." Courtney replied lazily, standing now and moving alongside Kat. "So I guess Marissa, Cade, and Charlie?" "Yeah. Sean said he had a thing to work on." Kat noted, not adding that Sean was not coming mostly because he disliked Courtney intensely. "Should be fun, though!" Courtney grinned. "I've never done superhero training before." "Me either." Kat said quietly, trying to quell her nerves as she imagined a cold green pair of eyes and a sharp tongue scornfully critiquing her every effort.
