Flux: Well, you were drugged to the eyeballs at the time.
GM: That excuse will only work so many times.
The problem this week is a jurisdictional one, specifically a hearing on who gets first dibs on the members of the psychic supervillain team PSI, who we’ve had a run-in with before, although the member we actually caught got away. The twist is that Hypnos’ mother Wanda Vanderschaff was a supervillain and has gone missing from the retirement home she was living at. This has also surprised Hypnos who had no idea his mum was ever a villain.
GM: The superhuman community assumed she had retired because her powers were fading. The staff of the Assisted Living community certainly saw no sign of her superpowers, except perhaps in her alcohol consumption.
Naturally everybody is expecting some kind of attack on the hearing, even if it’s a rival group trying to take out PSI while they’re in one place.
Hero Shrew: Is there anything we need to know about her if she DOES show up at the hearing? Osteoporosis or anything?
GM: No, she was a very active woman for her age.
Flux: Minor Brick?
GM: Used to be.
Hero Shrew: Oh good, I can punch her with snapping her spine then.
Flux, Allana, etc: NO
GM: SHE’S A LITTLE OLD LADY. You could kill her with Casual Strength.
Allana: She’s probably dosed herself with something to restore her powers.
Flux: Alcohol-fuelled superpowers, oh goody.
The members of Quadrant have been asked to stay away for the day of the hearing, probably because there’s no point actually asking for trouble. We loiter a suburb away, instead, and happily our Crime Computer isn’t fooled by whatever goes down at the courthouse.
Hardlight: I finish my coffee and nip into the lavatory to change into my costume.
Hero Shrew OoC: ‘the coffee’s not that bad’
GM: And Gareth is a minor celebrity - it’s going to go out on social media that Gareth Lowell has a weak bladder, from all the times he’s seen drinking coffee and suddenly running off into toilets.
