      Every time I see your profile picture the pink panther theme song pops into my head lol

  2. (sorta) Interesting fact about that show, like a lot of shows nowadays they filmed at least some of it in Pittsburgh which I live more or less outside and I actually know people who were extras on the show. I used to follow a bunch of currently airing tv shows and then I just kinda ....stopped. Now my dvr is full of shows I need to watch or just erase and I just don`t know if I want to. With the DCTV crossovers coming next week I'm using this week to catch up on that. Legends is still my favorite out of all those shows. It can be a very silly show at times but it doesn`t shy away from it. It works because they just take the silliness in as there identity there the team of misfits. They lean into it, and don`t try to be anything other then what it is which is a really fun show. Also as far as comic book shows go the aforementioned tone and identity of the show plus there setting of time traveling with an ensambly cast n fractured timelines lets them do a lot of more comic book style stuff you couldn`t do on Arrow or even the Flash without t seeming absurd. But absurd is something this show rolls really good with. Like we just had an episode with a giant gorilla trying to turn the cold war into ww3 to bring peace to the earth. We`ve seen the Legion of Doom, Jonah Hex, and even got the Justice Society. As a comic nerd, it`s a fun hour of awesome.

      I know, I was working on my post right when everybody, started posting. But all`s fair in Roleplay and war. I`ll just stick to the magic school thread and the Daily Weekly articles for now and keep Mike waiting in the wings for that next chaos event thread of for whenever you put up the Blairville tower thing you`ve spoken about.

  4. I`m working on it, been swamped with getting school stuff in before break then got a bad cold and that wasn`t fun and lasted a bit. I`ll be working on it now that we`re on break. I quite enjoy doing this stuff, I`ll my one-off article up soon.
  5. Ya it`s Monday and still no word from Bard. I`d be willing to keep this going if Bard comes back but without him this is dead in the water.
  6. Might be tossing my Blairville based reporter into the mix. While i`m sure events like this might make a good story, I think this will be more in a citizen of Blairville capacity, with saving the gyspy. He also might have had dealings with both guilds and may have known the gypsy in passing through those interactions as he`s both a magic user and someone accepting of the Safeguard rules if Supernal doesn`t mind me retconning that in. Was disappointed I missed my chance to get my Blairville resident involved in the chaos so I'm taking this opportunity. Like Agony asked how do we start this out? Do we work out how we want to start and connect the party amongst ourselves? How exactly should we get everyone together for the rescue mission.

    Ask an admin?

    Just making a note that my site looks the same with the new style/theme so it`s not just on you`r end.
  8. Be patient it hasn't even been a full week yet. We're just waiting for Bard ATM I believe. He hasn't been on since Sunday but it is close to a holiday in RL so he may just be real life busy. Doesn't mean this is done give it a bit.
  9. Took me a bit but made my post, hope you don`t mind my entrance there. Wasn`t exactly sure how I was meant to enter.
  10. Blairville, an old city of magic and wonder. One of the oldest and most powerful magic-based cities in Terrenus. The large and winding cobblestone towers and paths had been of great wonder to the young farm boy since he had stepped off of the Light Rail from Casper. The city was home to older more traditional magic, then the magictech epicenters of Hells Gate and Casper the cities Vonton were most used to due to "uncle" Charles business dealings there. However, the more traditional and ritualistic magic that was embraced here may be more conductive to his learning as the more ritualistic magic of the villages is what he was used to having grown up in an outskirt town in the wilds. He had always wanted to get out of that little town though and Charles had always fostered his potential. Bringing in the best tutors he could to give Vonton an education beyond that of a turnip farmer. When he achieved the age of free thought at 16 he went after his dreams and applied to the Gaian Academy. His scores for the academic test while not honor college worthy were good enough and his essay scores were top of the line, but then came the spellcasting test. Which he failed utterly, due to having no experience in magic at all. This lead to his being denied admission. He could retake the test at the start of the next term but he needed at least a basic magical understanding. They had searched for a tutor when a merchant with ties to Charles`s shipping companies had heard of a poorly advertised school just opening. Vonton, stepped up to the building his eyes scanning the large stone of the walls and taking in everything around him. He was dressed in rather basic clothing and held two bags strapped across his shoulders. He also held a folder in one hand containing his school records and the results o his failed entry exam namely the spellcasting portion of it. He pushed open the doors calling out into the hallways. "Hellllooooo. Is anyone here? My uncle should have sent a letter to me? Vonton!" He called out unsurely into the hallways.
  11. It`s actually German for biscuit or cookie. Just saying.

  13. Day 2 3:00 pm Meat packing distract: Across the street from the 2nd crime scene A puff of smoke filled the cold afternoon air, coming from a man standing in a alley across the street from where the second body had been found. Silently, and between drags of his cigarette he watched the uniforms move in and out of the factory. The officials would probably frown on having press to close to the actual crime scene, bringing up some nonsense of obstruction. However there was little laws regarding standing across the street from a crime scene. Not that a looky lou wouldn`t look somewhat suspicious but he was hidden far enough in the alley that the uniforms in there haste to secure and process the horrific crime wouldn`t notice him. Another figure rounded the corner into the alley, as he came into light he was seen to be a uniformed member of the Patian Security Bureau, who Mike granted only by snuffing out his cigarette. “Does you`r offer still stand.” Mike nodded, slightly grinning at the uniforms willingness for compensation. “Is it him?” The reporter asked solemnly to wish the uniform nodded slowly. “The Marionette Killer! His second victim, only a few years older then the first. Poor girls.” “Could he be purposefully targeting a twenty something demographic?” The uniform shrugged. “A third would be a pattern, not uncommon for killers to target young women really.” Mike nodded making a mental note of the information. “What was the scene like?” This question made the uniform pause and grow pale. Mike stood up straighter at this reaction. Not that he was expecting a murder scene to be roses but the look in this mans eye….it must have been horrific. “It it ..” The uniform took slow breaths here, he had been on the job long enough but at a low enough level that sites like this weren`t common enough for him, and his first experience with them had shook him to his core. After a deep breath he went on “Like the first murder a young girl was found naked and hung by muscle fibers.” “Is it still assumed he`s a doctor of some sorts?” “Who knows, that`s above my pay grade but it would take a certain amount of skill. “ “Who`s pay grade is it?” “Some private detective who was called in and a Elemental Knight seems to be running the show. “ Mike scratched his chin here, a EK? Was there a larger military involvement? That would make the headline better but access to information harder. “This murder though…it was worse…hung up by a hook, teeth scattered on the ground, a foot stitched to her calf. It it was.” The uniform got pale again and shook his head. “I`m just lucky I didn`t throw up like I did at the first crime scene. “ “That`s…horrific.” Part of him was revealed he wasn`t able to access the crime scene, he wasn`t quite sure he`d have the stomach to see that in person. He was slightly wondering if this was to big for him but his career wasn`t quite on the proper track. He had spent a few years as a stringer contributing freelanced (and unaccredited) materials to the Daily Weekly before being hired on as a assistant to a editor in the newspaper division and working production in broadcasting. He finally got on screen as a roving reporter. Corporate wasn`t necessarily a big fan of his segments and he had stepped on one or two toes getting there using family contacts to get the job. Those same toes ended up helping him be resigned to newspaper…working the classifieds. If he could find a good enough lead on this murder case and beat out the local papers he could in the very least be recognized as a stringer again so he wasn`t stuck as just a adjocky. This also meant this was unsanctioned which made his access and resources limited. Patia wasn`t exactly where he wanted to be spending his vacation days, as he wasn`t exactly trusting of The Outsider or his regime. Though he did appreciate inventions such as the Scry Globe, but his superstitious and paranoid nature made this a very awkward place for him to be. Though he did have contacts in Predators Keep which was in between Patia and his home town of Blairville, which had put him onto the murder story in the first place. The bribed officer gave him the name of the EK and the detective which he wrote down to research later before heading back to the scene after reassurance that the money would be wired to his account. He made note of there names to research more later before thinking of what the officer had described of the murder. The muscles fibers seemed to indicate he would have some type of background in anatomy, and the foot being stiched to to the calf showed some level of surgical skill maybe. Perhaps he could look into local doctors, or related professions. Once the body was moved to the morgue and the uniforms had moved out a bit he could come back and talk to the factory workers more but it was to hot at the moment. The morgue, that was a consideration. If he could get a copy of the first victims autopsy report it could give him a lead, but he wasn`t sure if he could leverage the coroner. Lower morgue staff might be easier like an assistant or if they had a separate officer in charge of the records. Morgue workers should be public record through a directory, he could add that to his research list. He`d have to run a check on this detective Rookstone but a PI may be easier bought then the EK or any higher ups in the PSB. However the best spot to start would be to go back to the first crime scene and snoop around there, while he waited for the heat to die down around this scene or for information to come in on the morgue staff or investigating team. He stepped out towards the street to grab a coach to the downtown part of the city.
  14. I'll be making a intro post with my reporter today. Probably won't have him actually entering the crime scene but he'll probably be watching it. Bribing a officer mabye. Also @ButAHumbleBard reading back through the pic you've talked about maybe having the killer stalk and attack one of us as a option. Just saying if the story does unfold that way, Mike would probably be the easiest target as he's not actually military or police and fits with kinda getting in over his head here. Just saying if you go that way.
