RADlands - End of Lime.

RADLands-1.png

Seven days ago, the world ended. Not with a bang, or with a whimper, but with a sound like three tons of fetid meat spontaneously appearing twelve feet above a PETA convention.

Grab your shotgun and don your re-purposed sporting equipment - Ragnarok's come and it's time to mess shit up.

    The little red child smiles as Jayce's friends take a stand for him, as their minds help set him on the path to a realization that only he could truly make - a decision that was his alone.

    The decision to fight.

    The decision to not let something as minor, as inconsequential as his current state as a Homo Sapien rob him of his humanity.

    "You see now, that the physical form is nothing. It is a dream of the true self. Nothing more. It cannot change you. It cannot take from you anything you do not let it." The little red boy nods sagely, his eyes sliding shut.

    [Jayce loses the Mutant Swift Meta-Trait.]
    [Jayce gains the Mutant Shiftskin Meta-Trait!]
    [Mutant Shiftskin]
    Rage: You suffer no Stress penalty on physical actions.
    Shiftskin: You may learn the Controlled Mutation Skill. You apply your Stress as a bonus to all physical actions.
    [Jayce gains Controlled Mutation 15%]

    The little red boy smiles, and, with a sound like rushing air, the world fades to blue.


    Chet snaps awake, he head resting on the table in front of him, a bit of drool collecting on the polished wood. Goldman, the green new hire, is mopping the floors across the room. Jeff, who's hands are still in bandages from that incident with deep-fryer last month, is busy locking up, while Jess tallies out the cash register. She's wearing a Letterman jacket with the collar turned up. Must be cold today. Chet doesn't know where the jacket came from, probably her boyfriend or something.

    Chet catches his reflection in the spoon lying on the table, making it look as if his head were huge. His eyes are all puffy from sleep, and his face is red where it had been pressed against the the table. Oh boy. Yeah, the coat was probably from her boyfriend.

    [MI6]
    Charles waves his hand dismissively. "I'm sure you'll do fine." It's unclear whether he understood R.B.'s question. "Shouldn't be a problem, I say."

    Booth taps R.B. on the shoulder. "Before you leave, I'd like to show you a few itemsssh you may find ussheful."

    He pulls out a slim metal suitcase from beneath the desk. "Now, of coursshe we can not shend you in with weapons. Thiss would trigger alarmsh with the islandssh ssssecurity. We do not, however, shend you in armed." He flips open the case, revealing several shiny items set into the protective gray foam that lines the interior of the case.

    Booth extracts an authentic-looking Rolex from the case, apparently tailored to fit someone with R.B.'s... significant wrists. "Item firsht - in addition to being an accurate time-piece, this watch is packed with highly condensssed eshploshivesh - perfectly ssstable, but with enough force to blow a hole the shize of your fist, yoursh shpeshifically, in a three-foot shteel sssheet. You set the timer ushing the shtop-watch function. One click for shtop-watch, to clickssh to shet the trigger."

    He withdraws a fancy-looking, yet tasteful, silver cigarette case. "Item the ssshecond, shigarette case." He flips it open to reveal a set of clear glass vials filled with a pale beige liquid. "Containsh five vialsh of a ssshpecifically tailored ssshcent that should confushes mutant shcent rescheptors. It can't masshk your cashte-shcent, but it can temporarily confushe a mutant - indusches a ssshort-term amneshia ash well ash a sssstate of complashcenshcy."

    An expensive pen. "Item the third, a fountain pen. Incapable of writing, but filled with a shingle doshe of nerve-toxin capable of taking down even a brute in a shingle ssssshot. Providing you can penetrate the shkin - without penetration, toxin causes dishinessh and confushion, followed by weaknessh a fatigue.

    "Theshe are your weaponsh, Mr. Bargle."

    [Jack]
    Jack chases after the figure, watching as it leaps from rooftop to rooftop. It isn't large - no taller than a man, but it moves with a speed that marks it as clearly inhuman. The spider-monster keeps pace with it easily, almost too easily, and, slowly, Jack knows that it is leading him.

    It wants him to follow it.

    The chase ends on a tall, half-ruined building over-looking Trafalgar Square, and the clump of monolith-studded dirt within. Jack can see his companions staring blankly at a little red squid-man within the ring of stones, but that's not what he's here for.

    The figure stands at the edge of the building, two pointy, frilled ears sticking up from its head, mangy black fur covering its head and shoulders, giving way to mottled gray skin. Great curtains of leathery membrane drape down around it like a cape, falling from vastly overlong fingers it keeps clutched about its shoulders. Its head turns as Jack approaches, ears twitching, a faint chittering noise in the air almost masked by the scrape of its rat-like tail against the wet brick roof.

    It lets a long moment of silence pass, before it speaks up.


    "Hello, Jack," says the bat-man.

    [The Vatican]COLOR="lime"]0%[/COLOR
    The Pope shakes his head at Makali's question. "Enough tal-"

    Cobalt interrupts that thought with a barrage of subneural commands, attempting to break in and access His Holliness' base, autonomic functions. [79%] The Pope clutches his chest and staggers backwards, his staff dropping to the ground as his hand reaches to the wall for support. He drops to his knees and keels back, red light crackling from his eyes. He lets out a scream, and in a puff of green mist and blood, nothing more than a stain on the rug.

    [Salvation Army] The man stares at the floor as Kruppe tends to his wounds COLOR="Red"]-18% Stress[/COLOR. Finally, he shakes his head and climbs back to his feet. He turns his head toward Kruppe, but his eyes stare past the man. "He was right, though - he had found salvation there." He looks back to the altar behind him. "Not his, though." His eyes find the sword. "Mine."

    The blade spins around in his hand. "I'm sorry."

    In one swift motion, the man drops to the floor, the pummel of his sword hitting the ground as he crumples to his knees, driving the blade through his Heart.

    [The Fire Station]
    "It's our desire," Senor del Fuego echoes at full volume, his eyes flaring open. He spins around, grabbing Sydney's thigh as he does, pulling her leg up onto his, his other hand slides up her arm, his fingers wrapping about hers as he pushes them both skyward. She can feel his heat - not just that from his body, which is a bit more close than normally acceptable, but from his pyrokinesis. She can feel the fire inside of him, burning as hot as hers, but under wrapped control, focused, kept under pressure. His eye lock onto hers, and the fire spikes. "It is our passion that makes us what we are. That sets us apart from other psychers! It is our hunger that drives us! It is our desire that allows us to do what we do, and what moves us to do so much more."

    Psychic energy crackles across the two of them, bonding neural networks for a fraction of a second, thoughts and wants blurring as synapses fire across the pair. She can feel his mind coursing through hers. Fire. Such fire. Her base, reptile brain screams at her to run - it screams the same base scream that coursed through the First Men's minds when they saw a blast of lightning spark a fire. It screams fear. It screams "danger".

    Senor del Feugo tilts back his head, and Sydney finds herself doing the same, her eyes blazing blue as his do, the muscles of her arm tightening in time with his, her brain automatically following the precise patterns his does. She can feel their psionic energy coursing together, his leading, showing her the path. It feel like electricity in her mind. All the time her brainstem screams danger. Danger! But all Sydney can feel, coursing across her synapses, is high voltage.

    Senor del Feugo lets out a shout, and a blue bolt of lightning fires from their fingertips, scorching the ceiling above.

    [Sydney has gained Electrokinesis 10%]

    "What... the... fuck..." Jen says flatly from the door, Burn lying unconscious on the floor beside her.

    Apparently so out of it as to believe he and his companions were in some sort of office, The Ocean King staggers up and appears to lean against an imaginary doorway.

    The Presidist looks him over thoughtfully. "The American people do not submit. We do not negotiate with terrorists, sir."

    [Tokyo]COLOR="lime"]2%[/COLOR
    [23%] The red lines flare green, and there is a sound like the sky coming apart as the strange new world begins to shift and spin. STYX is tossed against what was once a wall, its lines fading to an indistinct blur. CRABBY is flung down what might have been a hallway once, but is now little more than a swirl of light and static. Nolan is tossed into the ether, where he lands is... unknown [Is Kueller still around?].

    Henry watches as the robots are torn apart, their strange, glowing bodies turned to flickering embers of sparking text. The world turns on him, then, and he is forced backwards, as if existence had spun on its end. Chuck goes with him, the boy's cardboard disguise ripping apart in the process. The last thing Henry sees is his HUD screaming - data flooding out over his eyes, error messages filling every inch of his perception. A garbled, worried message from Cassandra and then... nothing.

    Henry wakes up in a green, crackling haze. There are ceiling and walls around him, after a fashion - they seem more impressionist than is likely healthy. Hazy splotches of green in varying shades, the whole world shifting and twirling, moving like viruses under a microscope, projected on flowing cloth.

    Chuck is beside him, and his brain is rooted into the world - green lines tracing out from his head and burying themselves in existence, ripples of light flowing out from each connecting point. The boy lies beside himself - a green, water-color version there of. Looking down at his hands, Henry finds that the connected Chuck seems the only thing int his place not rendered in cascading blotches of melted dollar bills.

    Little Chuck wakes up. Henry is beside him! He's green, but so is Chuck! There's something beside Chuck that he can't see, but he knows it's important! It's also a secret, which is why he can't see it!

    You look about at your new surroundings. The only other person around is Sticks, where on earth did everyone else go? You begins to panic. What if you killed them trying to make this jump? No, no, that's probably not true, you just need to get a grip and look around. It's hard to see through all this green haze, try to clear it up.
    
    Hey, an idea! If Chuck is still around nearby and he notices the haze clear up, he might figure you're still around too and do the same!

    "...is he dead for reals this time?" Makali says, his eyes scanning the room waiting for the Pope to pop back out. Good job, Cobalt. I suppose that may have done it. He communicates to his mental roommate and stalks forward slowly to where the Pope...popped. He kneels and presses his hand against the blood stains.

    "Tell Xiang to get down here. We're leaving." As he stands he picks up the Pope's staff and admires it. "Beautiful. I think I'll keep it."

    Also Makali is taking a breather at this point in time.

    "Mr. Postman, where did all of the robots go? Everything's so weird here, like we're in some kind of videogame..."

    Chuck takes a cursory look for any powerups that might be laying around

    "...Oh."

    [Cobalt --> Antony] Yeah uh, we took care of the Pope for you, well no let me rephrase that, I took care of the Pope for you while Makali stood around being useless and getting exploded at. But... um... yeah the robot didn't make it.

    "Welp, let's get out of here before some other stupid thing happens and makes this day even worse."

    You could try to break down the IRON GATE, but the craftsmanship is so lovely, you can't help but admire it. One day you will be able to sculpt things such as this. You decide to use your ENTRENCHING TOOL to dig under the gate.

    Taking the Pope's staff and slipping it into his jacket's back along with his sword, Makali turns and sees the body of the robot. He sighs and goes to pick it up, "I'm guessing Elizabeth will want a body at least." He looks around to see if the door the Pope disappeared reappear with his apparent demise.

    Chuck looks around, finding several green balls floating in the air beside him. Also a one-up! Sweet!

    [The Vatican]
    Gathering up the Staff and the bits of robot, Makali glances around for anyway out of this room.

    Luckily, it seems the door has reappeared with the death of the Pope.

    Makali smiles and with a bat of an eye pushes the door open. He walks out and heads in the direction that would take him down and out of the building, towards the road where he intends to look for the Pope Mobile.

    Meanwhile he keeps a sharp lookout for traps.

    [Makali --> Cobalt] So uh, what the hell did you do to him?

    You're able to dig under the IRON GATE easily, hopefully Sticks will decide to follow your lead. Off in the distance you see Nolan. I guess that means Chuck and Henry are around here somewhere too, let's try to find them.
    
    You take a bit of a breather as you examine the LIME OBJECT next to Nolan. That last RAD burst took a bit out of you.

    The American people? she thinks. That's absurd. There's no way an organized, national communication system still exists. He couldn't possibly hold a legitimate vote to get rid of Congress and the House. And he treats his guards terribly!

    She was still very scared. After all, they had no idea what the limits of his powers were. But her fear was slowly being overcome by a desire to put a bullet between his eyes.

    Makali exits the office and steps out into a long, empty hallway. He follows it for roughly twenty minutes before it empties onto the street outside of the Basilica. There are several cars fused into the pavement, but no sign of the Pope-mobile itself, which is a shame.

    "After that big display he put on, I kinda thought that he would've done a better job defending himself against me? I mean he was just saying how he was like you, I figured he probably had someone like me working on defense for him. I guess not.

    Wait hold on, Micheal told me I could, uh... teleport us back to, um, angel bases that we'd already been to. I think I can just warp us back to France. It'd make a lot more sense to do that than to drive it."



    I think I can do that at least? Maybe I'm misremembering. I hope not 'cause I don't wanna go digging through old threads to try and find it, especially since that's when I was still doing all my dialogue in text form so it'll be hard to find.

    EDIT: [Cobalt --> Antony] He had the three of us trapped in some kinda prison that was fueled by the RAD in the atmosphere. I drained out all the RAD and the thing exploded, and Xiang died in the blast.

    I tried to hack the Pope's SNN and give him a heart attack, and then he kinda... exploded? We're not entirely clear on that part.
