Cypher Harrisburg
We are back online. However, sadly I was not able to make a permanent fix to the dice issue and have it work on all users. To keep things simple as GM I'll be throwing in the dice coding on my replies. Additionally to allow the game to move as swiftly and concise as possible when making an action PLEASE state all skills and abilities that you have that you believe will ad you in the roll as well as if you are putting in Extra Effort. As GM I will then determine if these abilities and bonuses apply generate the dice outcome and narrate as usual.

This apartment complex sits directly across the street from Strawberry Square and is the main location for student housing for the several university locations in the downtown area.

Jane arrives at the apartment complex and walks around the outside, looking for anything unusual. Then enters the building and walks through all the public areas stealthily, looking with her sharp eyes and listening closely.

Being stealthy and unnoticed in this building is rather easy if all you are doing is walking around (lvl2 reduced to lvl1 because of stealth skill DC3) Rolled 15

Jane wanders several of the halls before entering a hallway where she is alone. The lights begin to flicker.

Having heard of the strangeness at this address, Andre decided to go and check it out. Since the fateful moment of his life, he had this driving need to make sure others are safe from that which lies beyond and this was as good a place as any. Pulling up to the back side of the building, he gets out and quietly approaches the building and enters. He goes in, keeping his head on a swivel for anything unusual with one hand on his pistol and the other ready to pull out his flashlight should it be needed.

The flickering continues throughout the halls culminating with a spirit seen passing from one wall to the next. Firs the spirit passes Jane (Intellect Defense Roll against Fear Rolled 14 and Passed). The Spirit then continues through the building till passing by Andrea (Intellect Defense Roll against Fear Rolled 4 and Failed taking 4 points of Intellect damage ignoring physical armor). Andre is stricken with fear sending him running. Moments later running down the halls in fear Andre collides with Jane.

Andre moved though the building carefull and he could feel something was not right. He was trying to keep his eyes open but was still caught off guard when the spirit passed through him and chilled him to his bones. The fear washed over him before he realized it, reminding him of his first time in combat... before he knew how to conquer and overcome his fear. Before he knew it, his instincts had kicked in and he took off running and unwittingly ran smack into Jane!!

He let out a loud "OOMPH!!!" as he stumbled to the floor from the impact. He slowly looked up and groaned inwardly, because it was Jane... the last thing he wanted was to be seen as weak before her... before anyone really but this was probably the worst. He swallowed his fear a bit and sputtered out, "H-hi Jane. Ummm... fancy running into you here...."

Jane looks down at Andre and raises an eyebrow. "You in a hurry to go somewhere? Or did you just see what I saw?" She offers him her hand and pulls him to his feet. "There's a restless spirit here causing the wiring to go haywire. (pun intended, ahem) Any ideas? Maybe we could talk to her and find out why she's here. I don't have much experience with the dead, or undead as this case may be."

Andre grins sheepishly as he takes her hand and stands up. He dusts himself off as he composes himself, "As much as I hate to admit it, I think I saw what you saw... and it unnerved me. Whatever it is, we need to get it out of here. I am open to ideas as well. If you can talk to it and get it to leave peacefully, I am open to that. You know me, I am more of the blow it all up, kind of guy. I'd like to think that would be the last option but still..." He shrugs to her as he lets that thought trail off.

"No, I don't think blowing something up will help in this situation." She laughs. "I'm not very familiar with disembodied spirits, either, though. All I can really do is talk to her and see if that works. IF we can find her again. I guess we follow the flickering lights?" (Do I have a friend that has experience with this kind of thing? Or do I have access to something like "Google" on my smartphone?)

You do have access to Google with a smart phone. Additionally there is at least one other hero in town that can specifically force spirits to speak to them if you want to search around for them.

While wondering around downtown contemplating the events of the previous few days, bouncing thoughts off his minds walls and letting them echo, he distinctly recalls reading about the issues surrounding 333 Market and finds his feet lead to the location, almost without conscious thought. He arrives at the building and, hearing a commotion inside, decides to enter and investigate. Upon opening the door, he let's out a quiet "... hello?"

When he doesn't hear a response, he decides to come back later and heads out to surf the message boards and see what else is going on in the area.

13 Shadows & Sandwiches on Mon Jun 12, 2017 12:33 pm

Flashing lights? Mysterious noises? Probably just mice, she thought, taking another bite of her sandwich. But in this town, who knows? Not like I've got much else to do, anyway.

She moved to set the sandwich on her thigh and dislodged a piece of tomato, causing it to tumble over the edge upon which she sat. She watched it fall down, down, down, and land inaudibly on the street below. A soft curse turned to curiosity as she noticed the lights below, barely visible, flicker slightly. A man was nearing the building, but from this angle, she didn't recognize him. Her eyes flicked from the man to what remained of her sandwich and back. She took a look over her shoulder, confirming that her gear was still safely stashed, pulled her mask down over her face, and tilted slowly over the edge. As she did, she kicked off, the motion one of practiced surety. The shot through the air, trailing shadows like a drop of food coloring descending through a glass of water. With nary a sound, she alighted upon the ground behind the man, just after he reached the door, landing in a small plume of inky gloom.

"Who are you and what is your business here?" she attempted to ask. Behind a bulky mask and through a mouth overfull with sandwich, she managed "Whobar yo n'wha-" before coughing, choking on the sandwich, sputtering, and holding up a hand, her index finger raised; the universal sign for "One moment please."

"Now I think I remember that I know a guy who can talk to spirits. Let's see if he's available." Use my smartphone to send out a message: Hey, we've got a restless spirit over here at 333 Market. You available?

Andre nodded to Jane, "It can't be any worse than my idea... we need to find out why it's here and I feel a bit out of my depth here, even though I have seen some things...." As he says that last part, it is said with such weight that makes one believe that he's speaking the truth and not just trying to embellish.

Jane touches Andre's shoulder. "Hey, stay with me. We've got work to do and I'm here with you. Don't let the ghosts from the past interfere with the present." She starts walking through the hallways again, watching for signs of the spirit and listening for screams of people encountering it.

(Rolled a Natural 20) Jane and Andre not only are able to find the spirit but along their trek come across a masked woman in all black (Laurel)

(Will post tomorrow to have time to have something really interesting and unique happen for that nat 20)

Andre's face takes on its customary serious look as he nods to Jane. "Roger that. I am right here with you. Have to make sure this thing is not a threat to anyone and if it is, get rid of it." He moves with Jane, his head on a swivel as he keeps on edge for the spirit. As they finally find the spirit, Andre is a bit surprised by finding a third person here on the premises. They don't look like someone who should be here and his hands come up with his handgun at the ready. His finger isn't on the trigger but on the trigger guard, ready to move as needed.

His eyes narrow as he trains the gun on the woman in black, "If you value your life or sanity, maybe both, I recommend you get out of here now."

The spirit thinks you are talking to it. Not realizing it's dead it put's its hands in the air.

Jane gently puts her hand on Andre's arm. "Let's not get carried away. If this is the spirit, the gun won't help. If she's living, she probably doesn't mean any harm." (Does the person look anything like the spirit we saw before? If it looks anything like a spirit and not a solid body, I'll attempt telepathic contact. Never tried that with a ghost before.)

The spirit looks like the one you came across before, but rather than the aura of fear it was once putting out now it is one of fear. You open a link to the spirit's mind and hear "Don't shoot, don't shoot. Great this is just what I need before finals."

Jane communicates telepathically with the spirit. "Hello, don't be scared. We're not here to hurt you. You say you have finals coming up? Are you a college student?" Gently push Andre's gun down.

The spirit clams a bit and begins telling you how ti's finals week and shes a student a HACC (Harrisburg Area Community College). She seems scared and confused assuming Andre is here to rob people and definitely does not realize she is in fact already dead.

Jane smiles gently and says out loud, "My name is Jane and this is Andre. He's a sweet guy but a little jumpy. I'm afraid you startled him. What's your name?" She'll wait for a response then continue."(Name) do you live here?" If affirmative, she continues. "Can you show me your apartment?"
