MEGA CITY HEROES II

Postby Vieto » Sat Mar 07, 2009 5:28 pm UTC

So it's finally on! After much deliberation, we have a set of rules to hopefully make it fun.

Charactor creation:
Spoiler:
when creating you are making your character, do so in the following format:

Name: It can be any name, and does not necessarily have to be yours.
Powers: See the 'Powers' spoiler. Also, describe their limitations and what they can do.
Bio: about your character
Items: what they have brought with them.

Powers:
Spoiler:
We have organized powers into 3 types: O, N, and D, or Offensive, neutral, and Defensive. You are allowed to choose, 2, but not of the same type (so only OD, ON, and DN). Also, 3 people per power

See attachment for power list

if you have a power not listed, pm me, and I'll list it with a type.

*Power changes, not on file:*
Golem Creation is offensive

NPCs:
Spoiler:
The mods of this game will be responsible for creation of NPCs, though we are open to suggestion. We will, however, let everyone control NPCs, so long as it doesn't get... random. Finally, ask permission form one of us if you want to kill an NPC.


there will be a discussion thread shortly... hopefully. Use the original megacity thread for discussion, to avoid OOC talk.

Name: Ivanovic Petrovski
Powers:
-Gravity Manipulation (O): The abiltiy to create artificial gravity fields at any arbitrary point or field, at any strength. Can be used up to a range of 100m. fields can be directional, but are limited in size to a few square meters. Controlled black holes are possible, but will quickly dissipate, as well as wormholes (that lasts only a few seconds)
-Electro-magnetism manipulation (D): The ability to manipulate electricity and magnetism. Can generate arbitrary points where a controlled magnetic field can attract objects. The magnetic lines can also be controlled to attract only specific items. Only affects iron, cobalt, and nickle (and resulting products). This power can also allow for small area bursts of an EMP. Electron flow control is also possible, but is not powerful enough to generate arcs of electricity. Finally, this allows for manipulation of the polarity of polar molecules, such as water, to attract or repulse other polar molecules (allowing for levitation on water, as people are mostly water, and are thus, capable of being polarized). This, however, takes concentration, and has a radius of 3 meters.
Bio: Ivanovic was an engineer in Canada, and was sent to Antarctica to help do some work at the Antarctica Base "Hospitality" for the construction of the bio dome. He is one of the only people capable of controlling the robots, who can do the work by themselves, but some problems at 'Hospitality' have required Ivanovic to go down there to control them from the base. He is intelligent, and inventive.
Items: Parka, high-powered laptop, backpack with blueprints, and tools. Also, several physics books, a compass, maps, and a gps.




Chapter 1: The crash
September 17th, 2050
8:10 hours

Ivanovich looked out the window on the modified jet. It felt relatively comfortable inside the jet, which held about 30 people, while a blizzard raged outside. Off in the distance, Ivan could see what little of the Southern Lights made it through the snow storm. Ivan went back to his book.

He glanced about breifly, noting some of the people on the plane. A few were talking, some reading, some sleeping. Ivan decided to put down his book. He got up to put it away, and just as he was about to sit down again, the plane dropped 200m, causing Ivan to crash into the ceiling, and then the floor. He crawled to his seat, as the plane tossed and turned, the seatbelt lights went up. The speakers went on, and the captain said "We appear to be having some turbulence. We suggest everyone stays in their seat. We are also almost at..." the plane rolled upside down briefly as Ivan got his seat belt on, but righted itself. Ivan's ears popped, and the oxygen masks dropped. while strapping his in, the plane dropped, rose again, then dropped more intensely, until a loud 'bang' was heard, as the plane bounced off the ground. Looking out the window, Ivan saw that the plane, which had a mostly flat bottom, did what it was designed to do, which was to use it's mostly flat body design, not the normal cylindrical design, to spread out the impact of the crash to minimize damage. he sighed in relief, until a giant rock crashed into one of the wings, causing it to go flying. The left side of the plane bounced off another, causing the plane to be scraping along the side that Ivan was on. the plane then turned sideways, still gliding, but Ivan's eyes went wide when he saw 2 rocks jutting out, and they were in line with Ivan. The last thing he heard before blacking out...

... waking up, Ivan found himself under a peice of the plane, with a few light wounds. Looking out the window next to him, he saw that the plane had broken in half, and had spun out of control, but had crashed into a large snowbank, so that the plane was a silhouette in the snow storm. Ivan shivered, he was only in his t-shirt, so he crawled out of his temporary shelter to open up the secure baggage compartment to get his warmer clothing. After putting on a sweater and a parka, he looked around. On his immediate left was the rock that hit him, on his right was the sillouette of the rest of the plane, but in front of him... was the sillouette of the partially built biodome, which meant the base, along with shelter, wasn't very far. Ivan was relieved by his luck, and began to scavange the wreckage for survivors and supplies.

Jernos Norfel
Powers
Super-speed:(N)
Jernos can travel at just over twice the speed of sound. To him, it appears that the rest of the world is slowing down, and he is moving at normal speed. This has limits when applied to technology - for example a gun takes a certain amount of time to chamber the next round no matter how fast you can pull the trigger.
When this power develops further, he will be able to apply it to some objects he is in contact with, such as cars, bikes and computers. This will not happen for a while though.

Bio:
Jernos was a doctor at Bath hospital in England, and was sent to Antarctica to treat the human overseers at the "Hospitality" base. He is dressed in a white lab coat, with a smart/casual shirt on underneath. He is looking forward to spending some time in Antarctica.
Items:
laptop, cellphone, some food, some medical supplies.

Intro:
In detail later, but he was on the same plane as Ivanovich, so pretty much the same thing happened. Ivanovich will find him OC in the wreckage of the plane.

Name: Chris Dashiva

Powers:
Pyrokinesis (O) - Chris can channel energy into his hands to produce flames. He can shoot these flames out in jets or small fireballs (they cannot be bigger than a regular explosive hand grenade), or he can use them on his hands when punching someone. The heat can be dialled down to a dull burn or to raging flames, but they never get as hot as blue flames. He can use his whole palm with the flame or just a few fingers. If he makes the flames too hot, or uses it too much, his skin begins to burn slightly and his blood pressure rises - i.e. he wouldn't be able to keep flame up for more than half an hour at a time without needing to rest a bit.

Sound Manipulation (N) - Chris can alter vibrations in the air to produce almost any kind of sound. He can do minor noises such as bumps, clangs or distracting noises, he can mimic larger noises like an airplane engine or mechanical noises of that vein. He can direct his sound power into small sonic blasts, enough to push someone back or move them a short distance back/knock them to the ground. His blasts are not powerful enough to throw someone across the room or cause grievous damage to them. He can also alter sonic waves in the air to stun one person or disable one person's hearing momentarily.

Bio: Chris was a military mercenary hired for private security to the Antarctica base's key personnel. Despite his profession as a strongarm and trained killer, Chris is rather personable and relates well to others. He does not have the "strong and silent" stereotype associated to many in his profession. He does however hide a dark secret about his past that no-one else knows about.

Items: Cellphone, a handgun with two 12-bullet clips, a knife, a small pocket torch, some food, a pair of aviator sunglasses

Intro: I'm gonna wait for a little until some more people are introduced, but for now he's with the others in the crashed plane.

September 17, 8:20 hours

Before trekking to the main wreckage, Ivan looked about his section of the plane for survivors. He pushed aside some fuselage parts, and found an unconscious man, in only a t-shirt. The man had a piece of metal in his arm, from the plane. Ivan noticed half of a doctor magazine on his lap, and took him for a doctor. Opening up the baggage compartment, he saw a medical kit, as well as a few other items. Ivan placed a blanket on the man, and applied an aesthetic to the man's arm. He then carefully removed the piece of metal. Once that was done, Ivan applied the medicine to himself, and put a few bandages on his own wounds. Once done, he took a piece of fuselage and made a makeshift sled, rested the man and both of their carry-on onto it, and began pulling him towards the wreckage. The man looked fine enough, but Ivan wanted to ensure that others were ok.

Silas coughed, and pulled his face out of the snow. He blinked a few times in the stinging wind then his eyes widened. His hand flew to his chest and he found, with amazement, that the camera was undamaged, He pulled it up to his eye and snapped furiously before letting it drop simply gaping,
"Wow."

The whirling snow obscured much of the plane, but directly in front of him, Silas beheld the immense front portion, completly torn from the rear, the twisted body stratched way back into the blizzard, until he couldn't see it anymore, and the debris was scattered lavishly around where he was sitting. He shivered again and wrapped arms around his chest, his tail wrapping around his stomach.


... Tail...

Oh shit.

Kett awoke to see a large slab of metal right next to his face. He turned his head as best he could to try and get a sense of where he was. He was still strapped to his chair, but now the plane he was in was nothing more than a smouldering wreck. "Damn, we must have crashed. That sucks..." He tried to move. All his body parts were still intact, although he ached all over. He moved his arm down to his waist and unbuckled his seat belt. He fell out of the chair and landed on the ground with a thud. "Ow. Wh- OW. Man, that hurts OW." He looked at his leg; a gash had been cut into it when he fell. "Son of a..."
He got to his feet as best he could. His leg stung like he couldn't believe, and there wasn't much room to stand anyway. He could see light coming past a sheet of metal to his right. Kett pushed on it as hard as he could. It didn't feel all that thick, but it wouldn't move an inch. "Come on!" He shouted. A small light emitted from his hands, and the sheet of metal was blown violently away from the wreck. Kett stumbled out of the hole and collapsed a few metres away. His mind wondering what just happened and his mouth shouting profanities at the pain, and the cold.

Rustin, knocked out by the crash, woke up with distorted vision. Afraid he had a concussion, he attempted to touch his head, only to realize that he was the size of a rat with four, clawed, fleshy legs and sharp teeth. Which scared the shit out of him. Literally. He had a feeling that he could... transform into a human, or even into other.. monsters was the way of putting it. He started crawling out of the tight wreckage, trying to get somewhere where he'd have space to transform into something warm and with human-esque vocal cords. However, on his way out, a large chunk of debris began to fall towards him, and he was too small to dodge out of the way quickly enough. He closed his eyes and mentally sighed, unable to do so physically, and waited for his death, for about four seconds. At which point he realized that he wasn't dead, just slightly tired. He looked up, and saw the piece of debris bounce for the third time off of an invisible wall of force, which he somehow KNEW he was creating. He walked out of it's path, and then willed the field to go away, before continuing on his way out.

Silas heard what sounded like a small explosion, and turned in time to see someone tumbling out of the wreck. They looked hurt, and he took another photo. It was amazing, a single bent figure in front of this enormous rent behemoth. Assuming it ever got to a paper, it'd be the front page of a lifetime. Dazed, he picked hmself up and walked towards the man, Taking photos of the wreckage as he went.

Jernos felt himself moving, and stirred slightly. He opened his eyes, and saw a flurry of snow. Suddenly the cold hit him like a sledgehammer. The pain was intense, but somehow rousing. He tried to sit, and another, sharper burst of pain ran through his arm. Looking down, he saw that someone had bandaged it up, albeit fairly crudely. He saw his kit sitting a short distance away from him. Evidently someone else had woken up first, and found him unconscious. "Anyone there?" he called into the blinding snow, but the furious wind drowned out his words. Slowly he rooted through his carry-on, and found his lab coat. Thank god there hadn't been enough space in his bag for it. He always knew there was a reason they made the things so damn bulky. Shrugging off the blanket, he swung on his coat, and did the buttons up tight.

Walking toward the wreckage, he looked around again for other survivors. Before he knew it he'd found someone - a man standing as though in mid pace, tail wrapped around his chest. Jernos took a double take. Tail? What the hell? Was this some freaky sort of medical experiment? No way that would get past the ethics committee! Even so, the man looked cold. Attempting to ignore the tail, Jernos ran up to the man, and placed the blanket around his shoulders. He stepped back, expecting some sort of acknowledgment, but received nothing. Ah well. Maybe he was in shock. Leaning in closer, Jernos pulled out his kit, and taking hold of the man's face, tried to check his pupils for dilation. That's when he realised something was wrong.

The man wasn't breathing. There was no way he was dead, his body position was totally wrong. Looking closer, Jernos could see him shivering, but it was so slow it was unbelievable. Startled, Jernos stepped back, and that's when it all crashed back to reality.

((In case you didn't realise, I was in super-speed mode without knowing it. You probably wouldn't have been able to see me while I was moving - the human eye can't see movement that fast. Plus, the whole thing would have only taken a couple of seconds from your perspective.))

Kett ceased his swearing when he heard some clicks coming from somewhere around him. He propped himself up onto his elbows and turned to see a man walking towards him taking photos of the wreckage with what looked like an undamaged camera.
"Hey, OW, where you, Ouch, on that plane too?" Kett asked the man, still wincing at the pain.

Rustin manages to crawl into an open area on the inside of the wreckage, where he attempts to will his weary self into a warm form. He transforms into something resembling nothing so much as a wookie before taking two steps and collapsing in the wreckage, unconcious from fatigue.

8:25 hours

Ivan glanced behind him to check on the person he was bring with him, and when he blinked, he was gone and one of the bags looked like it had been rifled through. looking around, he saw the person he had been dragging with someone else with... a tail. The person had a tail. Ivan walked over. "Hey, you were unconscious, how did you... " The man looked fine, so he drew his attention to the other one. "Need any help?"

-----

Kyle woke up. The teen had been sleeping, but now he was awake, cold, and under a ton of metal. Looking around, he saw a hand. On a closer inspection, he saw that it was his moms hand, under a ton of steel. He also saw a trickle of blood from another fallen piece of steel, which he found out was his dad. The shock hit him: his parents were dead. In angst, he shouted, and in anger and in sadness, his body sent out a shockwave powerful and loud enough to send the metal fuselage above him flying...

---

Ivan glanced towards the direction of a loud explosion-like sound, to see a giant piece of steel fly 100 ft into the air: and directly towards him. However, when it began to fall, and as Ivan began to brace, he noticed that his body was tingling, and the metal was falling slowely towards the ground, almost drifting. It was like gravity had been lowered. Another tingling sensation came upon him, and he blanked out... when he could see again, he saw the fuselage 100 meters away from him, and why the two people he had met were wide-eyed. (he had magnetically caused it to go that way)

Silas stared at the man, deadpan,
"No, I walked here of my own accord... Of course I was on the bloody Plane!"
He realised with a jolt that he was suddenly wearing a blanket. He hadn't had one on the plane... nor when he had woken up...
He whirled around, but couldn't see anyone.

"Well, sorry for being in enough pain to not be able to think strai-" Kett stopped as a blanket seemingly appeared on the man's shoulders.
"Wha? How did you do that?" He asked, dumbfounded, as he unsteadily got to his feet.

Okay, this was just getting too weird. As he watched, a large piece of fuselage began to fall, but it slowly decelerated as it came towards him. At first Jernos thought the same strange time effect was happening again, but then the metal started to fly off in another direction. Turning, he saw a man standing stock still, eyes focused on the fuselage. As he watched, the man turned his head to follow it, then snapped out of it, and turned to look back at him, slightly surprised at his sudden appearance.

Bernardo had been asleep when the plane first started to lurch, and when it dropped suddenly, he opened his eyes, bringing himself into a semi-conscious state. After the plane rolled upside-down, though, he was wide awake, and he even had enough time to vomit violently before blacking out.
When he awoke, he was lying on his side, staring at something soft and brown, with a white substance on top of it. As he brought himself together more, he realized that he was staring at his jacket, which was covered in snow. He feebly reached out an arm to grab it, and had just enough strength to pull it over himself before losing consciousness again.
The next time he awoke, he was more aware of his surroundings. With a little effort, he propped himself up on an elbow and looked around. A little distance off he could see the wreckage of the plane, and a little beyond that was a large dome that was a major part of the Antarctic complex. Bernardo groaned. That was much too far away. He must have really been sent flying by the crash. Luckily, the thick snow had cushioned his landing pretty well. Unluckily, it also meant that he was freezing his ass off. He wasn’t sure how long he had been out here, but it probably wasn’t a good amount of time, whatever it was. Bernardo stood up, taking it slowly, as he was still tired, as well as some. He pulled on his leather jacket, and looked down. His bag was there also, only a few meters away. He trudged over to it, slowly, and slung it over his shoulder. Turning back to the direction of the wreckage, he could see the silhouettes of people through the driving snow. He would have shouted out, but his voice was too hoarse, and he could barely speak above a whisper. Not one to let this go to waste, Bernardo swore violently under his breath in Portuguese, then took a step, stumbled, and fell. He tried, unsuccessfully, to throw out an arm to break his fall, but it instead went off to the side, and struck something hard and warm. The object actually wasn’t all that warm, but considering how cord Bernardo was, it felt like the surface of the sun. He quickly scrabbled to find out what it was, and quickly found a handle of some sort. He twisted it and pulled upwards, revealing a dark shaft leading down into the earth. As soon as he lifted the hatch, he was met with a blast of warm air from wherever the shaft lead to. Bernardo resisted the urge to dive in head-first, and instead patiently lowered himself down. Just as he was entirely in, his arm strength suddenly gave out, and he collapsed onto the floor of the tunnel below…

Kett just stared, wide-eyed, at the tail.

"You... you have... a tail?" Kett asked, words finally reaching his dumbfounded mouth. He noticed it looked similar to a monkey's tail. Remembering back to his childhood, Kett spoke up again; "I remember watching a cartoon as a kid. There were these aliens that looked like humans except they all had tails. Just like yours."

The fire raged, burning everything. The entire area seared with heat, making his skin brown and begin to crack. Flames roared into existence everywhere, licking tongues of orange fire on the backs of -

Chris's eye snapped open.

For a moment he wondered whether he'd been unfortunately aboard a disguised Oceanic 815, and that he'd awaken to find polar bears, smoke monsters, a myserious hatch and a shitload of trees. Instantly pushing this random thought aside - his friends said he watched way too much TV, which tended to give him rather creative reasoning for some occurrences - Chris raised himself from the icy ground. Memories of the plane trip flowed back into his mind as he remembered where he was.

The Antarctic. The ass-end of Earth. At least he wouldn't find any polar bears here either.

Quickly taking stock of his inventory, and making sure his gun was loaded and concealed within his jacket, Chris surveyed the area around him. The plane had crashed behind him, a fair distance away from the Antarctic base, and it looked like it was within walking distance. Chris thought he could maybe see people ahead of him, making their way towards the large dome, but he couldn't tell properly how many there were. His vision was still a little blurry and all he could seem to hear was something like radio static. That was weird - his comm piece wasn't even in his ear.

Deciding he had little other option he began walking towards the base, keeping his gun in one hand in case anything else unexpected occurred. He hoped to God there was coffee in that base. It was times like this - getting thrown out of a falling plane smack into the middle of a conveniently-structured snowdrift - that Chris desperately needed coffee.

Otherwise, it was probable that he would have to shoot someone.

Capable of quick and efficient analysis, narrowing down both allied and enemy potential courses of actions to very few, amongst them almost always the one taken (provided enough information). Can learn virtually any skill, profession (from how to do something physically, although needs to have a body capable of first, to a profession), but needs someone to teach him. So for now cannot invent/build stuff. Limits: Cannot pinpoint exactly what an enemy will do unless given a vast amount of information, needs information to extrapolate from.
Pyrokinesis(O): Think firebending in Avatar. Roughly equivalent. Eventually once fully mastered can be used like a rocket for short bursts like in the show (20-30 feet), only once fully mastered. Nothing like the human torch. Also cannot electric bend like they did in the show.
Bio: CS major from New York. Halfway through, he had a falling out with his parents. Promised a good job in Antartica, because he was already better then the grad students at programming, he left pretty much everything to go to Antartica.

Items: Switch blade, lighter (won't be needing that anymore soon), Digital Camera, 2 SD cards (I had a video camera, but the crash took it), laser pointer, $2,000 (all I have to my name).

Wind howled past the crashed plane. The flames raged, shielded by the wreckage.

Rolling over, Gerard felt his side. Looking at his hand he saw blood. And fire. His hand was on fire. Shoving it into the snow, he felt the cold put it out. Thining it strange he felt the cold but not the fire, he looked at his side. The cut was bad, but not life threatening under usual circumstances. Getting up, he realized his laptop, camcorder, and everything else in his luggage was pretty much shot.

In the distance he thought he could see someone making their way across the ice. In the same direction he thought he could see blinking lights whenever then wind and snow let up for a brief second. Pushing himself up, wrapping himself in a bloodsoaked blanket lying next to him, he began to make his way across the ice, noticing the disturbances in the snow telling him he wasn't the first to head in this direction. Somehow, he didn't know how, but somehow he knew exactly how long he had before he collapsed. He also knew that the directions with the blinking light was the project, and that it was roughly south east of them at the moment. How he knew these things was impossible. Yet he knew them. He could also judge by the tracks in the snow how many people had....He stopped himself. I'm hallucinating. Its the stress. You can't possibly know these things. Quickening his pace, he wished he were at the base so he could know what the hell was going on.
We figure out what all this means, then do something large and violent

The thing about changing the world...once you do it the world's all different.

"You... you have... a tail?" Kett asked, words finally reaching his dumbfounded mouth. He noticed it looked similar to a monkey's tail. Remembering back to his childhood, Kett spoke up again; "I remember watching a cartoon as a kid. There were these aliens that looked like humans except they all had tails. Just like yours."

"Well... I only just got it! I don't know where it came from!
He sighed and tried to look around, but the Blizzard kept him from seeing anything. Sighing, he made his way over to the plane, he tried to clamber to the top but fell back painfully into the snow, and he noticed again just how cold he was.
"I don't know about you, but I'm recovering from the shock, which means soon I'll be too cold to think, let alone get anything done! We have to find warm clothes at least, food if possible..." He scrabbled uselessly against the side of the plane again... and lifted himself up! He was hanging from the side of the plane by his hands and dangling about a metre above the ground!
"Now this is just weird."
"GRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOWR!!!!"

"You're telling me." Kett agreed. "A whole bunch of strange things have happened since I got on that plane." Kett shivered; he liked the cold, but this was insane. "When I was stuck under that plane, I could've sworn I blasted my way out of there somehow."
He tried to remember what he did to move that metal sheet. He raised his hands, and pushed. Two small balls of light appeared in his hands.
"Whoa! What the hell?" Kett shouted, becoming distracted. The balls rocketed off his hands, and hit the ground nearby, melting the ice somewhat and leaving scorch marks. Kett was dumbfounded. Again.

"Seconded" Gerard said, making his way back to the crash site. "I'm gonna need something to wrap this wound in, something clean, before I can attempt to make it to the base. Or the blizzard to stop"

Noticing the tail on Silas, Gerard gestured towards it. "Not that I'm saying there is anything wrong with it, cellular mutation being a mystery in all, but I don't seem to recall you having that when we got on the plane. I think I'd remember someone with a tail. Now, anyone find anything not bloodsoaked I can wrap this wound in?"

Silas gaped,
"Ok, nevermind, THAT was weird, you are officially 'The weird one'. I'm the straight man now.."
He looked thoughtful for a moment, then turned around, pressing his tail against the plane,
"Ha! It's like I can vary my grip as much as I want!"
He leaned forward, reaching out his right hand to the man,
"Silas Tyler, reporter."
he nodded back towards the plane,
"If we get up top we can get our bearings, and maybe get some supplies from inside!"
"GRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOWR!!!!"

"Ummm yeah, you're both weird. And you" pointing at Kett "Keep your hands where I can see them"

Sitting down, Gerard thought about how cold he was. Suddenly he felt truely warm. Just as suddenly. but moments later, he realized it was because he was on fire. Diving into the snow and rolling, it quickly went out.

"Okay, thats.....not possible. I do not spontaneously burst into flames. I....no. Not possible."

Kett grasped Silas' hand, shaking it. "The name's Kett Dama. And I agree. Maybe we can also find something to keep us warm in there."

((Guh, way to ninja me back there... anywho))
Silas sighed,
"You know, if we keep having to change which of us is the weird one we'll never get this show to broadway!"
He heaved on Kett's hand and stepped backwards, trying to pull him up to the top of the plane. It was surprisingly easy to keep a grip on the two objects, but equally surprising was much effort was required, eventually, he lay, panting at the top, he called down,
"If you can't keep from randomly catching on fire then I'm not gonna do that again for you, sorry!"
He tossed the blanket down,
"We'll try to find a medkit or something..."

Then he stood up, and gasped,
The in one direction, the plane stretched out, he reflected on how little people ever saw the top of a plane close up, it was very smooth...

In the other direction, the dome, lights flashed over it's surface and he could just see the runway going into the open hangar, still waiting for their arrival, the lights kept flashing, he took a few pictures.

"Okay, I'm gonna do my best not to, this is the first time that has ever happened. It seemed to happen when I thought about the cold, so I won't. Incidently if you do find fuel for a fire, I'll see if I can light it....actually, I have a lighter in my pocket. Not much gas left, but it'll be safer."

Checking his pocket, Gerard made sure it was still there. All his extra lighter fluid was in his suitcase...well, by this point it was probably all burned up.

Silas pulled Kett up onto the top of the plane. Kett looked back down at the fire guy. "Yeah, that looks pretty dangerous to me. Dont get me wrong, those blasts I fired look pretty dangerous too, but it seems I have to concentrate to use them."
Kett looked around. The wreckage stretched for miles around. He could have sworn he saw other people trudging through the snow towards a building, but they seemed too far away to tell.
As for the immediate area, there looked to be a small hatch a few metres along the plane.
"Guys! There's a hatch over there!" Kett called out, pointing in the direction of the hatch.

Silas scrambled over,
"Aweso-..."
He paused, and went grim,
"Everyone's probably still in there... aren't they? I don't know if I even want to see that..."
"GRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOWR!!!!"

"Hey, I'm gonna circle and see if I can find another way up. And while I do that, I'll see if I can recreate the fire thing, and if so, learn to control it. Since its useless against the blizard out here, and I seem to catch fire anyway, you can have my lighter for now."

Gerard tossed up his lighter, then began to make his way around the section of the plane they were next to. Grumbling to himself about how he had to get the weird thing that lit him on fire, he thought back to all the shows with fire weidling people who could make fireballs and what not. Concentrating on that, he opened his hand. Then he closed it. In shock.

He had just made a fireball.

Realizing that the wind was blowing fast enough that he could literally slide up the side of the aircraft, as long as he was careful not to go to far, Gerard quickly improvised a hook, and allowed himself to be inched up the now ice covered windward side of the aircraft. Upon standing up on top, he looked around for the others while shielding himself from the wind. Spotting them further down the fuselage, he quickly began to trek towards them.

Silas glanced up momentarily, then went back to staring at the hatch,
"Well I'm sure as hell not going to open it..."
"GRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOWR!!!!"

Reaching Silas and Kett, Gerard looked at Kett.

"Care to use that....whatever it was...on the hatch?"

"Uh, right." Kett moved over to the hatch, and pointed his palms at it. "Alright, lets see if I can do this."
Kett focused for a moment, then pushed. As before, 2 small balls of energy formed in his hands. "Haha! Yeah, I did it!" Kett exclaimed happily. "Right, now to get this hatch open." Kett pushed again. The blasts flew into the hatch and burned away a hole that looked big enough for a small person to fit through.

Gerard hopped inside.

"Okay, I can't see a thing in here. I'm gonna try something"

Opening his hands and focusing like he did before, this time 2 fireballs appeared.

"Okay, I can see now, but I think Im pretty close to crapping myself. Oh, and my hands are...well, you'll see when you hop down."
