TMNT Wars - Game Thread

Postby Crankshaft on Tue Aug 27, 2013 12:33 pm

Hello, this is April O’Neil with Channel 3 News. Chaos has fallen upon New York City. Much more than just a series of small, isolated incidents, it's now apparent that an organized criminal element is at work and at the moment, business is good. So good in fact that there appear to be no eyewitnesses to any of these crimes.

With complaints ranging from purse snatching to breaking and entering, police switchboards have been swamped with the angry voices of more and more citizens who have fallen prey to the recent surge of crime that continues to plague the city. Instead of getting better, things are actually getting worse. Even more alarming is the baffling and often bizarre nature of these crimes. Merchandise of every size and description from skateboards to stereo systems has been disappearing from store shelves and storage areas at an alarming rate.

Even the victims themselves rarely catch a glimpse of the thieves. Many don't even know they've been victimized until it's too late. In fact, police have yet to come up a single eyewitness. Only a few vague reports of young boys or teenagers at the scenes have been filed.

But whoever is behind these crimes, one thing is certain; these are much than just a series of random isolated incidents. Crimes without criminals? An invisible gang at work? Who are we gonna call? Unfortunately the police are the only ones to combat what some are already dubbing the silent crime wave. But perhaps the most disturbing silence is that coming from city hall.

This is April O'Neill, Channel 3 Eyewitness News.


Splinter: Ugh…I know who is to blame for these senseless crimes. Many years ago, I lived in Japan with my master, Hamato Yoshi. He was a great warrior. His only rival was Oroko Saki. They competed over everything, including the love of a young woman. When she chose my Master Yoshi over him, he murdered both in a fit of rage. Scored by love, he was lured to the way of evil by joining the Foot Clan. He rose his way up the ranks and was selected to lead the New York chapter of the Foot Clan. This, my friends, is who is to blame.

I came to New York, alone, fifteen years ago. I found myself for the first time without a home, wandering through sewers, scavenging for whatever I could find. And then, one day, I came upon a shattered glass jar and four baby turtles. The little ones were crawling into strange glowing ooze from a broken canister nearby. I gathered them up in an old coffee can and when I awoke the next morning, I received a shock. For they had doubled in size. I, too, was growing. Particularly in intellect. I was amazed by how intelligent they seemed, but nothing could have prepared me for what happened next: one of them spoke.

More words followed, and I began their training. Teaching them all that I had learned from my master. And soon, I gave them all names: Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael.

Right now, my sons are lost in the battle with Oroko Saki, better known now as The Shredder. You must band together, behind the guidance of my sons, in rising against all evils to save the city.

* Earlier *

The Turtles are in their lair, planning on how to proceed.

Raphael: So what do we do now?
Leonardo: What do you mean, what do we do now?
Raphael: Shredder's out there somewhere.
Leonardo: I know Shredder's out there.
Raphael: So what are we gonna do about it?
Leonardo: What CAN we do about it? We have nothing to go on. We have to wait until we come up with something concrete.
Raphael: Oh, so that's the plan from the "great leader", huh? Just sit here on our butts!
Leonardo: I never said I was a great leader.
Raphael: Well you sure act like it sometimes.
Leonardo: Yeah? Well, you act like a JERK sometimes, you know that? And this attitude of yours isn't helping anything.
Raphael: Yeah? Well, maybe I'll just take my attitude and LEAVE!
Leonardo: Why don't you?
Raphael: I will.
Leonardo: Good!
Raphael: Great!
Leonardo: Go ahead! We don't need ya!

Raphael leaves in a huff. Instead of trying to form a plan with his brothers, he had decided to go on the hunt himself. After wandering the city for hours, he's finally calmed down. He's about to head back to the lair when he sees a group of teenagers breaking into an Electronics store.

Raphael: Hey! Get back here!

He chases the group a few blocks, who retreat into the junk yard. Instead of going back and telling his brothers, he decides to take matters into his own hands. He scales the outside wall and enters the junk yard. He investigates as he slowly goes deeper into the foot’s lair.

Raphael: It’s quiet….a little too quiet.

Without notice, Raphael is surrounded by foot soldiers. He prepares himself for a fight...

Spoiler:
But it was just too much for him, and Raphael was captured by the Foot.

I can't believe the baddies didn't *pizza* EPP Night 1.

I therefore refuse to *pizza* EPP. It's a double-triple bluff.

I like the c2i vote. It's as good a reasoning as any (the double reverse psychology thing).

No ****. I mean in terms of Warz. Normally green role players have a power/night ability.

Have team building activities at work today starting at 9, then we're going to the pirate game....so not going to be around at all today...in case anyone asks.

Looks like all the 500 people are in here too, so that covers both.

I'm going with Rel... always quiet, never gives any info (whether good or bad). With this few of players, cutting some fat early is better than trying to do it later.

I think the Leg needs to loosen the tourniquet, 'cause the Foot is purple.

I'm still going to wait for a bit, nothing really to go on, but I guess there never is day 1.

@ Crank: Is there a time for end of day?
