What about Foresight? I.. kinda plan to make him a bit of a prescence...

Also, sorry, I had figured I could conclude the Gala by now, but I'm leaving for Reykjavik in hours, and I don't know how often I can update. I don't have any big events planned for a spell though, so as you were?


Female Altered Human

Makes sense. Foresight has butted in our heroes' business a time or two before.

But I can have Whippoorwill overhear/observe and come down hard on Mercy as well, if Foresight doesn't work for you.

I'm not sure what Foresight may have seen that would cause him to interfere, now that I think about it...

Maybe he foresaw Alexis continuing to shoot off his mouth when his first comment doesn't get a rise, and steps in to prevent things from going further?

Sgt. Steel's concerns could also continue to increase if he hears Alexis joking about breaking someone's face.

I suggest a consequence and suddenly all the NPCs want in. ^^;

Also, since it sounds like we're starting to wrap up the gala, I'm going to set up my Kaoru/Alexandra end-of-the-night scene sometime after I get home from work.

Did you want Chloe to have a scene with Wingblade? Totally up to you, K.

And if you want something with longer consequences for that miss, don't go with Whip. She'd just give her a brief, chiding glare most likely. So using one of our newly introduced heroes might be the way to go.

I took 'not having events planned for a spell' to mean there was still more to come, just that there was more time that would pass in the Gala before then. Confirm/Deny elsine?

How long term Sarge's reaction is probably would depend a lot on Alexis's response to it ;-p

Mostly I just thought someone overhearing and having a negative reaction would be a good consequence for a miss. I personally don't necessarily think it needs to be a long-lasting effect, but it shouldn't be, like, a one-sentence thing that is easily ignored, if that makes sense. Like, a scolding from someone Alexis thinks well of carries weight because Alexis has a reason to care about their opinion. Similarly, if an NPC is going to be in a position to help/hinder/interact in a meaningful way with the team in the future, them having a negative opinion of Alexis would be a meaningful consequence.

I dunno. It was just an idea for a consequence since it was a miss. I also don't want my suggestion to somehow turn into "And now all the NPCs are aggro'd vs Alexis". ^^;

Do you have anything you'd like to accomplish in that scene? Given her current knowledge, I currently don't have any ideas for things Chloe would like to learn about from Wingblade. So if Wingblade doesn't have something she wants to talk to Chloe about and it would just be the two of them engaging in small talk, I'd rather just skip it.

Oh, hmm, I was keying off of the "I had figured I could conclude the Gala by now" part. I'll wait until I know what's happening before starting my end of night scene.

Heh, that's why we're talking in Discussion instead of starting a dogpile in Gameplay :-p

Kaoru, I didn't have any ideas either but I wanted to at least mention that I was willing. Sounds like a Chloe/Shayera meeting is one to save for later, once there's something significant for them to talk about.

Do you have any preference, Mercy? Like if there's a hero where you think Alexis might have some interesting contrasts/contacts? (Not necessarily the same as already respecting them)

I think that it's going to be hard to get Alexis to care about the opinion of a hero that they haven't already met. That said, I would love to see someone immediately go anti-bullying campaign against him for his words.

Any resolution on Bran's failed Empathize with Odysseus?

So I never really got an answer about if the gala is almost over. Wingblade seems to think so. I just need to know if I should start my Alexandra/Kaoru scene or not.

Also, unless someone objects, if Alexandra doesn't spend a team to help Alexis, I have a consequence I'm going to throw at him. I'll give Alexandra until tomorrow night (~30 hours) to choose to help or I'm assuming she doesn't.

My preference isn't to resolve my own misses, so if around that time you (or someone else) could toss in some problems from Bran's Empathize that'd be great!

I don't want to do my reply to Wingblade and Cassie's departure without knowing what else is happening :-/

Sorry, was on a glacier/in rift valleys for a couple days, haven't had time to check in. Yes I'm planning to end it soon. Yes it's cool for someone else to resolve the miss. And given what the C&S attempt was, I'm not gonna be able to help much.

Not relevant right now, but do any characters regularly read/watch/keep up-to-date on the news?

Bronwyn keeps kind of a second-hand eye on things? Like she's not going to be totally up to date on local politics etc. unless they hit some of her key interests.

Mary-Beth has more free hours in the day, and is a reasonable vessel for Bron to hear things from, but still isn't 100% 'tapped in.'

Shayera doesn't take much interest in it, though she often "watches tape" of metahuman battles as a means of preparation.

@Wingblade: Alexis is not going to be clear of the office just yet as my NPCs have a reaction/one of them is going to insist upon something before they leave. I should hopefully be able to get a response off in the next couple of hours. In the meantime, please hold off on advancing things.

Hmmmm, I think Hex probably doesn't pay all that much attention to the news - the average amount for a 16-year old?

Alexis doesn't watch the news either.

Also sorry for the double post. Rushed to work after posting, didn't realize until it was too late.

Janet Moralis could be talked into pressing the art issue on behalf of the museum (she's pretty worried the museum will be held accountable and is eager to shift the blame onto someone else). However, her argument will be weakened if the hospital doesn't also agree to press the issue as the proceeds of the sale were set to benefit them, not the museum. Clarice Jacobs will not be pursuing the issue on behalf of the hospital and if pressed, will firmly but gently point out that any money they receive is charity. As such, if Randall Leventis wants the hospital involved, he'll need another approach. One way might be to find one of her underlings to go behind her back (definitely do-able, but means they can't make the hospital's involvement widely known/make a public stink).

Mercy, not sure if you're aware, but Whip's referring to Dr. Brighthop. In case Mercy wants to go to therapy.
