It all started on a nice, peaceful day. Well, as peaceful as it gets in the mid-western California city of Las Carcosas.
Our heroes gathered at Tilvertons Book Store (I'll edit the name later, cause I forgot the name.) when Baron, a warden of the White Council, appeared in the shop. Not realizing the group at first, he was discussing some secret need with Tilverton, but noticed the group beofre he could say too much. He then left a message with Tilverton and took his leave. Tilverton read the note and sighed before asking the group for help. He had some personal matters that he needed to attend too, and asked the group if they could handle some White Council business for him. Seems there was some Black Magic afoot at a recent MMA match, and the fighters that were suspected are set to compete in Las Carcosas in a few days. The White Council asked Baron to look into the matter, but something is keeping him so busy that he needed Tilverton, who is no longer associated with the White Council, to have it looked into.
Just then, Preston Atlas, a local Mob Boss who Tilverton and Jack had quarreled with in the past, came through the door requesting books on earth magic. Tilverton then asked him to leave, partially because he doesn't like Atlas, but mostly cause he didn't have any books on the topic (Tilverton never turns down a sale).
The group decides the best way to investigate the fight is to get jobs working at the event itself. Kearn and Brigid easily get accepted as Security, Isogi is assigned Stage Manager (Despite having no training in the field, he just bullshited his way through the interview), Amelia is assigned as a Ring Girl (Having lied about her age) and Jack is assigned as the Referee so that he can be right up in the action and have a better chance with his Mystic Senses.
On their way out, the group is ambushed by Atlas' goons, who were actually a pair of Ghouls. It was a cute effort, but the team easily dispatched the pair of Ghouls and moved on with their day.
The day of the fight arrived. Everything was going well, especially for Amelia who put on such a legendary show (As in she rolled a damn Legendary) that she will be getting bombarded with job offers in similar fields for years to come. Jack hadn't noticed anything strange until the final match, when one of the contestants, Vera, was on the verge of losing, her opponent started acting strange, like she wasn't mentally there. Jack sensed black magic, and traced it's source to Vera's manager and trainer, Boris. Before Jack could formulate a plan, he felt a rush of magic and Vera's fist suddenly moved on it's own accord, crashing into her opponents skull with such force that the cracking of bones could be heard, both from her hand and her opponents now shattered skull.
There was a brief silence as everyone tried to comprehend what just happened. Amelia tried to step up and distract the crowd. However, this caused the other Ring Girl to think she was trying to steal the show, and she rushed in and tried to shove Amelia off the stage. Just then, a girl in the audience stood up and in one leap cleared the distance from her seat to the stage, landing between the two Ring Girls. Her Glamour instantly fell, and Amelia was shocked to see her older sister, Fallout (Can't remember her actual name at present…)
Before anyone could act, Fallout merely gazed into the other girls eyes. It was though madness gripped the poor girl instantly, and she began screaming and muttering incoherently in a matter of moments.
Not wanting to waste any time, Jack leaped forward and tried to punch Fallout with everything he had. Fallout effortlessly caught the punch. Despite Amelia's pleas, she retaliated by punching Jack into the audience, knocking him out instantly. Kearn and Brigid then stepped in to try to stop her while Isogi went to gather Jack and Amelia struggled to come up with a plan.
Brigid lunged at Fallout, only to find herself locked in an armbar. With a twist of her hips Brigid felt her shoulder come loose of the socket, and felt a wave of sensations fill her all at the same time. Kearn came to his cousins defense, but Brigid succumbed to the pain and collapsed on the floor.
Boris led Vera from the building in the confusion. And just as Fallout was preparing to strike at Kearn, a young Spider-Man wanna-be, costume and all, swung onto the stage. The two kept her distracted long enough for Isogi to secure an exit, just as Fallout struck down Kearn and the newcomer, whom Isogi also collected onto his cart. Isogi managed to avoid detection this whole time, and managed to get them to safety.
Just as Fallout was turning to face her sister, the roof above them crumbled and their mother, dressed in her own superhero attire, landed between them. Stunned by her sudden entrance, Fallout chose to retreat without a word. After some words of concern, her Mother took her leave as well, promising Amelia that she won't interfere with what she's doing, but expressed her wish that she return home to them soon.
I'll continue this later, lot's of notes to go through…
