1.) What does Slade know about the Atlanteans (culture, level of technology, current leader[s], diplomatic relations)?

2.) What does Slade know about Richmond Destine?

1a & 2a.) (I'm going to look up the files in a moment) What does SHIP and PILOT know about these subjects?

1) Other than the heroics of Black Ray during WW II, which you studied newsreels of mostly for footage of the Super Soldier's fighting style, Slade doesn't know much about them. They're pretty isolationist, and more than a little territorial; a sunken ship is what brought their king into the war with Germany.

1a) SHIP and PILOT have rather more extensive information. Apparently the Atlanteans are an offshoot breed of humanity that were worshiped as god-kings in ancient Egypt, dubbed "Inhumans". While primarily humanoid or even human in appearance, they possess great durability and strength, which, combined with their advanced technology, allowed them to survive at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. The precise location of Atlantis is unknown even to SHIP and PILOT due to the Inhumans' cloaking technology. It's even possible that Atlantis is mobile. The royal Inhuman bloodline carries even greater potential than the common Atlantian physiology, and every royal-blooded Atlantean has superhuman powers. There is a file of four known royal-blooded Inhumans:
A) Black Ray. King of Atlantis. Possesses superhuman strength and durability, can create and control soundwaves powerful enough to crush a tank, is amphibious, can use his soundwave control to echo-locate, fly, and control sea animals.
B) Isthula. Queen of Atlantis. Woman with a squid-like head with hundreds of indestructible tentacles, which she can lengthen and manipulate at will.
C) Maxiseth. Brother of Black Ray. Insane. Hatched a plot during WW II to overthrow his brother's rule and murder the Queen. Was stopped by the Justice Squad. Escaped and aided the Axis on a number of occasions.
D) Karmet. Admiral of the Atlantean army. Karmet is a woman with feline features whose enhanced senses and tactical mind allows her to determine the weaknesses in any person, situation, or plan.
2) Destine is the VP of operations for a local trucking firm Hammerdown Transportation. Hammerdown operates mostly in the NE US.
2a) No real information in database on Destine. Nor Hammerdown. Suspiciously little information, mostly permits and activity logs from the D.O.T. all squeaky clean.

Any creature beginning its turn within 60 feet of a mythic banshee and able to both hear and see it is stricken with despair (as crushing despair) for 1d6 minutes (DC 26 Will negates). Creatures succeeding on their saving throw are immune to the immortal anguish caused by that mythic banshee for 24 hours. A mythic banshee can spend one use of its mythic power as a swift action to intensify the anguish it radiates until the end of its next turn, forcing creatures to save again even if they have previously saved (though such creatures gain a +2 circumstance bonus to the saving throw). Even creatures that succeed on their saving throw against this effect are affected as crushing despair for 1d6 rounds, while creatures failing their saving throw begin to wither and die as if afflicted by the curse of the ages, and the despair caused by this ability persists until the curse of the ages is removed.

I did a little play with times, with some stuff happening at night, some stuff during the day. Now we can say all the timelines are synced up, with it being about 10 am.

Fusion and Blademaster

Fusion's conversation with Cpt. Summers is interrupted by her comm chirping, from Blademaster (see above).

1.) What do we know about the Hive?
The HIVE was an invasive alien species which attacked the Earth. They possessed a bite that would leave their victims mind-controlled. Their queen could implant eggs that would incubate in days and transform her victims into more HIVE, or, in the case of Supers, hybrid creatures. Some Supers with regenerative properties were able to resist the incubation.

Classified Information:
When an attempt to defeat the HIVE with clones of the original Super Soldier failed, leading to a veritable army of hybridized superclones, Maria Waller was convinced to utilized Project H. The HIVE Super-hybrids were sprayed with a triggering scent and Wingblade was sent in, her programming defeating any attempts at mind control, and her fury overcoming the odds against her. According to the report you accessed, 98% of the Super-hybrids were killed. While the report concluded that the built-in halflife of the clone DNA would degrade enough to have killed them over the remaining course of the war, a dissenting entry by Maria Waller notates that the hybrid species may have removed the limitation.
Additionally, a separate report indicates that the scientific lab AEGIS was commissioned to study/autopsy the HIVE and their slain victims. The results of those studies are above your security clearance.

2.) Who are the major players in New York and DC?
NYC: Blue Spider, The Fantastic Family, The Haunt, Wingblade(?);The Executioner; Black Goblin, Dark Panther. The Demon's Hand, The Demolition Crew, The Emperor (Penguin) of Crime, Redmasque, Mudman

DC: Blademaster, Captain Freedom, Fusion, Quicky, Wingblade(?); AEGIS; .Baron Doom, Mars, Dr. Magnus, Mentallus, VENOM

3.) How well funded are PILOT and SHIP? 3a.) How much of those resources are available to the team?
Very well funded. Beyond their actual budgets, several covert funds have been allocated for their use. Hundreds of Billions, would not surprise you if it reached into the Trillions of Dollars per year. Aside from the base, jet, etc. some members of your team (notably you & Fusion) have high enough clearances to access their intelligence databases through secured channels. Your understanding was that the base would also have some personnel, although you haven't been briefed on scope, composition, or timing of the staffing. The basic understanding was that it would be focused on administrative, housekeeping, and legal issues that may arise.

4.) Are there any other active superheroes/teams currently? 4a.) Who are they? 4b.) Where are they based?
The Fantastic Family is based out of downtown NYC. Apparently given their powers by an ancient Egyptian "deity", these four youths focus most of their time exploring adjacent dimensions accessible through a rift in the uppermost story of Reed Richmond's building there.
Legion-X is a group of mutants that operate out of an undisclosed location, mainly concerning themselves with mutant affairs arising from a martyr complex their leader suffers from.

Wingblade

One of the women stops the others from screaming, urging them to calm down and stay quiet. The big one said they were 'getting what they had coming'. That one. she points at the one that was holding the device said that we would be 'fine war brides'. Thank god you came along. Who knows what they would have done to us. The other women sob, quietly nodding their thanks.

The device is pretty sharp, but also has two "barrels"- one on each side. You don't, however, see a trigger mechanism.

Blue Spider

As you begin recording and take a peek, the TTX device starts beeping. Fisk looks up, seeing you, frowning heavily. It seems, Goblin, that you have brought along another unwelcome guest.

The Haunt

Gord chokes. You've got to be kidding me. That's sick, even for you, man. he begins picking up the food, waving you towards the door. I don't want notin tado with stinkin Atlanteans. Call yer other friends.

Rd 2 Wu charges. Then they can move(but provoke AoO from Wu from one he charged), then they hit Wu for the first time (he saved). Then I double move. Did Wu do anything to the one he charged? Also his AoO would happen before he gains any neg lvls (unless it doesn't move).

Round 1: Wu activates winged boots, stays in stealth mode under cover.

.........Demiliches attack Rafael
.........Rafael moves forward twice and activates AMF

..........Demiliches zap Wu again. Wu dies? didn't have a closing bracket on that last save, not sure what he rolled.

Dual initiative is a b*%*!, especially combines with S.O.D.s that include a suck even if you save.

Round Three: Wu---

Demiliches: One for me, brother! the second demilich exclaims.

The first demilich floats above the central lava pit. It attempts to pull lava up into you from under the chain bridge, but your antimagic field nullifies the spell before the lava can reach you.

Te Demiliches get their second intiative after Rafael and before Wu can act.

Rafael is currently suffering from 6 negative levels due to Devour Soul (below).

spellcraft1d20 + 24 ⇒ (14) + 24 = 38

spellcraft1d20 + 24 ⇒ (19) + 24 = 43

The demiliches recognize the AntiMagic Field being cast and hiss in anger and dismay, floating higher above the platform by 30' (total height 40'above the platform, out of the protective area of the fences.

Then, Wu breaks cover and moves into charging position, now possible due to the fences no longer blocking a charge. (I moved you forward 60' so you could reach either one on a charge.)

Glad of a new target, the Demiliches focus their attention on Wu. The further one floats over to get closer.

Both Demiliches use a Mythic Point to cast a quickened Greater Major Curse on Wu. The first one uses it to give him -8 on attacks, saves, and checks. Will DC 26 Negates. Then as a standard action, it uses Devour Soul on Wu. Fort DC 26 partial, see below.

The second,acting after the first, uses its Greater Major Curse to bestow a -12 to Con. Then as a standard action, it uses Devour Soul on Wu. Fort DC 26 partial, see below.(These save will be affected by any negative levels and/or curse effects Wu already suffers from.)

And now Rafael is up.

EDIT: Updated Map

Devour Soul:
(Su) As a standard action with a range of 300
feet, a mythic demilich can imprison the soul of one
living creature within one of 10 special gems embedded
in its skull. Alternatively, a mythic demilich can expend
one use of mythic power to target two living creatures that
are within 30 feet of each other. If a target succeeds at a DC
26 Fortitude save, it gains three permanent negative levels. If it
fails, its soul is immediately drawn into one of the gems in the
mythic demilich’s skull. The soul remains trapped within the
gem, visible as but a gleam except under true seeing. The soulless body corrupts and decays rapidly, reducing to dust in a single
round. As long as the dead creature’s soul remains trapped
in the gemstone, it cannot be restored to life via any means save
direct divine intervention. Gems with souls trapped in them can
be retrieved from a destroyed mythic demilich, at which point
they can either be crushed to release any souls within to their
afterlife or used in the place of the usual material components
to restore the soul and body with resurrection or true resurrection.
After one hour, the mythic demilich can choose to consume any
soul trapped in a gem, healing it 1d6 hit points per Hit Die of
the soul, at which point only miracle or wish can restore the dead
creature to life. The save DC is Charisma-based, and includes a
+2 bonus for the Ability Focus feat.

Oops, yes, sorry, the "platform" described above is actually the cage/dome/walls containing the platform and the lava.

The Platform should be described as:

Between the fenced walls, hanging suspended over the lava pit by tremendous adamantine chains is a 30' diameter circular platform covered in loose chunks of metal and debris. It is a 5' wide circular beam twisted into a circle with a gaping hole in the center 25'.

The chainlink bridge leads to the platform, and the demiliches are floating 10' above the platform, so they can see through the bars of the fence surrounding the lava field.

This vast chamber(each square=15 feet) features a 60' high ceiling. In the center of the room, a 90'x90' platform is suspended over boiling, spewing lava. The platform has walls of its own, with spikes topping a 15' outer fence at odd angles, as well as inner curved spikes forming a kind of dome-like structure with a 60x60 opening on top. Two tremendous statues guard the only obvious footpath to the suspended structure, a chainlink bridge.

Two floating skulls peer in your direction floating about 10' off the platform and looking through the fence. They are aware of your presence (possibly due to the crowd), but may not have spotted you if you wish to try the stealthy approach.

Operation: Greymonday is a series of reports about a "grey skinned monster" that has been spotted in several rural areas in upstate New York. While details a sketchy and there are no reliable witnesses, the evidence of pure destruction is undeniable. Moreover, the path seems like it is pointing towards New York City. The attacks always occur on a Monday, but the distance between each attack seems variable, and the time between attacks has been somewhat random except for occuring on a Monday.

SHIP has placed units in the most likely of next targets, but due to the unknown nature of the "monster" would like Titan Team X to be on alert on Mondays, ready to jet to any given location in upstate New York at a moment's notice.

Given that today is Tuesday, the Wall must have meant "you have less than a week" when she said "nothing urgent."

@Fusion: sure, be my guest.

@Wingblade (& everyone) I'll try to allow plenty of world-building on your part, especially if it plays off what I've already got going. If you look at the campaign info tab, there are some historical things you shouldn't rewrite, as well as a short list of know compiled villains who are solidified at this point. I'm happy to incorporate other peoples' good ideas. If I have my heart set on something, I'll let you know and ask you for a little retcon. Shared imagination is what RP is all about, and with the nearly infinite possibilities brought on by an amalgam U, I shouldn't try to do it all by myself.

@Haunt I think vibranium works well as a phase-disruptor. In fact, since you were thinking of a Batman mixed with something Marvel for your ex-mentor, I'm thinking a Batman/Black Panther mix using vibranium weapons will do the trick. :)

There's a dumpster that might provide cover, a fire escape that might lead to higher ground, a bag of trash dumped lazily by the dumpster, and a rainspout leaking water into a sewer grate. She notes that the big guy and his partner close to her have bulges under their arms, explaining the gun smells she detected earlier. The other guy's weapon looks to have some technological features, indicating more than just sharpness. Two of the prongs seem as much barrels as blades.

Grabbed by the goon and dragged slightly forward, Shayera gets a strong whiff of his scent, masqueraded previously by the stronger smells of his cologne and the gun he wears.

Tek Ulmet dragged the princess by her hair towards the throne. Her father stood, looking down upon the scene with obvious displeasure. Shai-Nefer, you will be wed today, as I have commanded. The palace shook as the earth rumbled around them.

Unfortunately as she is lost in the vision of the past, the second thug notices her wings under the false pack. Wait! he exclaims.

Shayera and Thug #2 get to act in first round, other two thugs are surprised.

Shayera Initiative 1d20 + 18 ⇒ (6) + 18 = 24

Corvus

Pain was the first sensation. A sizzling vibration on the edge of each nerve cluster. Existing in the very heart of non-existence. Then the cacophony of sensation as light and sound and smells and flavors flood into a brain that had experienced none for a seemingly unending lack of time. This flood was too much, the mind could not deal with everything at once, and so it held onto the first of its sensations, the pain.

Then it was gone and another eternity of dimensionlessness came.

I'm good with Titan Team X. If I ever get around to bringing back the Ti'Tan race to Earth, it would make some interesting conflict. Tactical is fine, since, as has been pointed out, you will at least initially be linked to PILOT and SHIP.

Everyone (excepting Corvus for now) has been given a "e-comm" device; this can look like a watch, id card, pendant, cell phone, etc. It works as a combined comm(with satellite range rather than 1 mile), computer, and audiovideo recorder.

Quicky

You remember the sides of the trucks said Hammerdown Transportation on them. Doing a quick search online 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (5) + 14 = 19 Technology yields little information. Hammerdown is a privately-owned transportation facility mainly operating in the DC, JerseyVirginia, and NYC areas.

You were able to find a picture of "the man" on their website. Apparently he is Richmond Destine, their vice president of operations. Bio blurb says he has been with the company for seven years, since its founding.

He paid you in cash in a brown paper bag, as described above.

Behind the crumbling wall the second creature came from, you find another set of stairs leading downward. The cheers seem to echo from below.

Quicky

The men notice Roger's accelerated pace, picking up their pace as well, though not nearly matching the speed of Quicky. Soon three trucks are filled with crates marked with a symbol.

The man seems very pleased with the speed-up granted by your involvement. He smiles, and it looks almost as oily as he smells. I knew you would be a great asset, Mister Stone. From your reputation. he holds out a paper bag full of money. You know what reputation is, yes? Is people talking. Is gossip. You have done this job well. Now, for me, your reputation is solid, is fact. We will meet again. and then he hands you the money, whistling almost impossibly high-pitched, and circling one finger in the air. The men scramble onto the trucks, departing. The man enters a dark vehicle, travelling in a different direction from the tucks.

Fusion

The Blackjet's cockpit seems to be modeled after the bird you've logged the most hours in, with the exception some extra switches and an unobtrusive video screen/tablet. Just as you're getting settled in, a voice calls from behind you She's something else, isn't she? A tall, lean man with dark hair and bright eyes, wearing a flightsuit smiles broadly. Captain Jack Summers. I had the privilege of bringing her in for your crew. Almost like the Q18 if you ignore all the extra gadgets.

------------------------------

Slade Masterson

As soon as you and the Fusion are ready, Blademaster. Everyone's been issued commlinks and badges. And if they need to be picked up, Fusion can fly the Blackjet to that purpose. We've got a mission for you. Nothing urgent, just some chatter we've picked up. Details are under Operation: Greymonday in the system.

Waller turns abruptly heading towards the exit. Stopping just short. She looks over her shoulder If anything more urgent comes up, do keep in touch, Blademaster.

Wingblade

One man holds a strange weapon towards the girls while the other two move towards Shayera, smiling menacingly. The bigger of the two, almost seven feet tall, built like a living wall of muscle, says Someone is here, little guppy. Come, join the fun. as both men reach forward.....

Blue Spider

very tempting to have a bunch of police cars chasing a bank van while a guy steals an old lady's purse while she's trying to rescue her cat out of a tree, but.....

Blue Spider swung across the city, experiencing the freedom he rarely enjoyed as the blocks between him and his goal seem to flash by. Forty Two Seconds and seventeen of those blocks later, Peter allowed himself a sigh of relief. There, just two more blocks away, the silvery glow of the Planet's rooftop globe shining in the setting sun. He was going to make i.... Spider Sense!

The Black Goblin!

The Haunt

Grayson floats gently above the dusty floorboards of the warehouse. He sees three trucks being unloaded by men. Marked Crates are being stacked near a long worktable where three humanoids with tentacles where their mouths should be work to fashion the metal in previously-unloaded crates into weapons... each has two larger, muscular tentacles working hammers and green-flamed blowtorches, while smaller, quicker, and more agile tentacles move to insert electronic components from other crates. Each squid-man has six tentacles working on the task.

Haunt

The young man peered across the alleyway. Garbage crammed against the narrow gap between walls. The Emperor of Crime in Gotham had allowed the once proud neighborhood fall to squalor. His minions served as the slumlords and union bosses, twisting this portion of the city into a filth-filled mockery of a shadow of its true promise. One day, Grayson Pryde would make Oswald Fisk pay for what he had done to Gotham.

But tonight, Haunt's eyes were on a different sort of criminal. The harbor of Gotham had seen better days. Now, shutters, broken boards, and graffiti covered many of the warehouses. One of these warehouses, long abandoned by its owners, had lights moving around where darkness should have reigned.

Grayson had discovered rumors of movement in and out of this warehouse, late-night unloading and reloading of trucks. It was time to find out what was going on....

----------------

Quicky

It's not always easy to find an honest days work. Some days, you just have to find a job that is honest enough. Roger Stone knew that this kind of work was usually done in the daytime, but the night shift was paying him twice as much. Just load the merchandise, don't worry about what's inside, the suit told him.

The suit smelled oily, and always seemed to be sweating. Luckily, Stone didn't have to deal with him too much. And the rest of the crew seemed like decent fellows, if bit quirky. They spoke with some kind of southern european accent, maybe Italian, but not quite. They moved pretty quickly and efficiently for normals, with a precision Stone didn't usually see in union loaders.

--------------------

Fusion and Blademaster

Waller wasn't the type of woman who tolerated being kept waiting. The new base of operations was ready, and so was she. As the heroes arrived, she clucked her tongue softly before speaking. Welcome to your new home. I don't have time for the full tour. We wanted the two of you here first because you have an understanding of the way things work.
She brings you over to a monitoring station, a screen showing you and each of your teammates in action during the HIVE incursion. Turning to Blademaster, Study their moves if you haven't already. I'm sure you can find ways to encourage improvement.
To Fusion, she says Hanger's that way. Familiarize yourself with the operations of the S23 Blackjet. I have the feeing you'll be needing it soon.

---------------------
Blue Spider

Late again! Blue Spider could make his way across downtown Manhattan in less than two minutes. So why was it, then, that Peter Parker always seemed to be late for everything? The alarm hadn't gone off... well, it had been web-snoozed, so no sense blaming it. Maybe, if somehow all the stars in the sky changed, the bus would be running as late as he was...

Nope. The next one wasn't coming for another half an hour. And that's if it didn't get a flat tire, run out of gas, or become highjacked by a terrorist gang. Less than three minutes to make it to the Planet before Perry Jameson's deadline.

Wingblade

The darkness hardly mattered. Shayera's other senses were sharp enough to pick up the scent of gun oil and gun powder, to hear the sound of the safety being released. Three men, heartbeats steady, but strangely thick-sounding. The ladies' heartbeats were much faster, their choked-back tears a salty-wet smell matching the stink of their fear.

They were in the alley two blocks over. Shame. Shayera had planned on keeping her dinner with Kristina.

To clarify, I was trying to answer specific questions people were asking about Gotham, Metropolis, NYC, etc. While I expect some heroes might be from/based out of Gotham or DC Metro, I think the group as a whole will definitely be more mobile than that.

For example, I fully expect Haunt to spend his "downtime" in Gotham, doing what he can to keep the streets clean, just as Batman does until the Justice League needs him(or Superman in Metropolis, G.A. in Star City,etc.) I suspect Blue Spider might handle more "midtown" NYC crimes, while Blademaster might be based in Langley, near DC and DC Metro, but not actually in the city itself. Quicky could just as easily be in DC Metro or NYC/Gotham depending on how bright or shady he wants the sidejobs he gets hired for to be. Fusion being part of the space program puts her further south, but no reason she couldn't be reassigned to DC as a liaison given recent cutbacks. I think Wingblade, as military project, got her start near DC, but could have moved on to just about anywhere.

Corvus, being a special case (by player request) will be introduced sometime in the game to the group.

It looks like we have a majority with already formed for votes.

Here's what I'm thinking: After the battle against the Hive, Waller comes to Fury to suggest a team formed from among the heroes who helped fight off the alien invaders. While there is some disagreement between the two as to whom should be on the team, they eventually reach compromises. Blademaster is selected to act as liaison between the group and PILOT & SHIP. He was specifically tapped by Fury who thought that the youth and inexperience of the team needed some guidance and training. Waller insisted on the inclusion of Wingblade, having long been of special interest to her.

Having SHIP and PILOT involved has benefits as well as restrictions. The UN has provided a base of operations, equipment, and access to limited government sanctioning of your activities. One caveat was registration under PILOT's database, potential arguments against such pre-empted by Steve Fury listing off all your civilian identities by rote. PILOT and SHIP provide access, equipment, and information in return for the ability to call upon you when needed to save the world.

I'm think advanced stealth VTOL Blackjets might be involved.

How does that sound to all?
