Aftermath


October 17, 2015



After the riot, after the bomb went off, there was silence. The citizens, every person who had no gas mask on, toppled over and fell into a deep sleep. The Agents moved among them, sorting and arranging, making choices. The people were moved, set into groups and settled into new houses, new lives. They were to make up the new army, to become the powers that would save the world.

Saturday morning they began to stir. They were in strange places, with strange people, and on a screen in their living rooms, Eileen Brooke appeared. She told them she was sorry, she told them that the bomb had been meant as a cure, but the side effects had established a new generation of mutants. Every citizen was now a mutant.

But not all hope was lost -- they could be more than they were. They were now a city of mutants, a city that could rise. The threat from the outside -- China -- was rising. New Haven could be the US's savior. They could stand and be American citizens, taking on a super power that was far greater than their own, and be true heroes. And triumphant, they could return to a country that would welcome them back.

They were not given a choice -- any who tried to escape came up against the electric fence that had been erected around the city.

After


The instigators were divided and split. Some were sent to the Vault, some were reintegrated into the population, cowed and quiet. The city learned the first Monday what it meant to be an army. They were gathered and divided into groups based on physical ability. They were going to be trained. For the greater good.

Acting out did no good -- privileges, like seeing family and friends, would be taken away, or you'd be imprisoned. Continued trouble would send you into the Vault. And so the world changed, and the city trained. There was no getting out.

Yet.

New Powers


With the release of the new serum, there were several effects. The most obvious one was that non-powered people began to develop new powers. But powered individuals were effected as well. For some it involved the development of new powers, and for others there were adverse effects.

Non-powered individuals gained the following abilities:

Faria Gupta - telepathy
Frederica Conrad - metal manipulation
Harini Gupta - elastic body
Julienne Genereaux - life force draining
Daniel Dunn - energy beam emission
Abram Gadhi - arachnid manipulation
Anthony Dupont - super strength
Bex Zhou - teleportation
Lars Williams - gravity manipulation
Amara Rhodes - ice generation

In addition several powered characters have now gained the following powers:

Aleks Tyler - force fields
Pyro Tyler - invulnerability
Tia Gamble - pyrokinesis
Emily Ashton - flight
Gareth Masters - healing
Henry Goodwin - self replication
Holly Evans - camouflage
Cameron Douglas - deoxygenation

New powers start at the level that the character is at. They are in effect as of October 15th, 2015. Please write up the new powers, with the usual limitations and care for negative effects.

Lastly, the following characters have had adverse effects of the serum released. The symptoms of adverse effects are: low grade fever, irritability, tiredness, a marked increase in power (everyone in this group has gained two level), and decrease in control over power. Adverse effects are denoted by a + in the powers section of the mini profile. The characters affected are:

JT Sevan
Jon Taron
Cassandra Finn-Sinclair
Mireille Giroux
Ophelia Giroux
Caleb Flynn
David Cross
Evan Cross
Mama Pandora
Lauren Baxter
Braedan Wood
Colton Carver
Jeanette Genereaux

Genetic factors influence how the serum effected the powered. Children and siblings would be affected in addition to these characters. If your character has gained enough levels to gain a new power, they are allowed to gain it now.

I guess I'll kick off this insanity.

Abram, Wei, Simon, and Braedan are all in their assigned spaces.

Abram wants to talk to Diana at some point, but he hates Brooke... Gonna be a tough call whether to give up his dignity or socializing privileges.

Wei shall be lording his authority over Freddie every chance he gets.

Simon would very much like to offer his services in training the soldiers, but he's happy to do whatever the Agency needs.

Braedan is being tortured. I'll probably get to writing his first vault post today, but it won't be pretty. Someone save the poor, little cinnamon roll?

Amara and Gareth need roomies!


Amara offers free A/C and clumsy ice sculptures (unless you scare her, then you might end up as an ice sculpture)! Social situations can be hard for her, but once she warms up to someone, she's really warm-hearted and bubbly.

Gareth offers rebellion and plotting! Not right away, of course. He has to figure out his new power, analyze the situations, and look at all of the moving parts to Eileen's plan before he knows what to do... He can cook, though!

Question: should we post new Vault threads in SV3, or is there another Vault forthcoming?

SV3 is where Vault people should post their threads!

Other questions I have been asked:

People who take meds -- will continue to receive them.

Children in New Haven -- will be set up in a boarding school type facility where parents can visit provided both the parent's and the child's behavior is acceptable.

What effects will the characters retain? Guns and knives will be confiscated, of course. Do they keep phones? Is internet allowed? What about Netflix?!

Communication with the outside world is cut off, except for certain branches of the Surveillance team, and only after they have proved themselves trustworthy.

So, I was wondering... What about those who "misbehaved" during the riots but are now part of the bios or the surveillance corps? Did these people spend time in Holding and have to earn the Agency's trust? Where they just given a free pass? How does that work?

If it makes it easier I'm thinking of people like Holly (who killed an Agent) or Aleks (who didn't but still attempted to break into the Agency).

Misbehaving mutants are watched more closely, and have harsher punishments (more alone time, re-education videos about why they should be helping the cause, etc).

Oh, good (?), because Holly totally wants to go and do something stupid right now. We wouldn't want to go too easy on her.

I'm going to assume this also applies to Grace and JT (maybe?)

Another question! Those this all mean Downtown is fully deserted? And who lives Uptown along with the PAs?

ETA: Do Agents still live at their old places or have they been relocated as well?

Do agents have specific roles during all of this? Are they assigned to different groups or are they just doing general policing?

Agent Assignments



R&D


Agents in this group are currently working on the problem of adverse effects. Agents in this team take part in the rotation that works with the Bios teams to keep an eye on the soldiers at night.

Bios Teams


These agents train Bios during the day, and take part of a weekly rotation to keep an eye on the Bios when they are not in training. Any problems should be directed to their commander.

Surveillance Teams


These agents train surveillance teams during the day, and each live in a building with surveillance taking part of a monthly rotation to keep an eye on the surveillance corps when they aren't in training. Any problems should be directed to their commander.

Assignments


Ashley Graham -- Surveillance Teams (permanent)
Bobby Hirsch -- R&D
Charlotte Turner -- R&D
Clara Gold -- Bios Leader
Elliot Bryant -- Surveillance Teams
George Morrison-Hapman -- Bios Teams
Kathryn Dupont -- Surveillance Leader
Nick Tam -- Bios Teams
Sati López -- Bios Teams
Simon Blackwell -- Bios Teams
Toby Cohen -- Surveillance Teams
Wei Tam -- Bios Teams
Xiu-Mei Tam -- Bios Teams

Adverse Effects


For those characters with adverse effects -- the fever and the powers being hard to control occur in a cyclical nature. The fever will die down, but it will come back eventually. The same with control over powers. This means that there are times when people with adverse effects will feel perfectly normal. Currently there is a search to removed adverse effects, but until such time as a cure is found, all characters will have to deal with the in and out of the effects.

Ooooo... alright, one last pesky question and I swear I'm done. How much freedom of movement do Agents have to go back and forth between bios camps and surveillance camps? Say, Elliot's bestie, Bobby, was assigned to a different group, can he go visit?

Quick question regarding clothing.

Government issued uniforms, or more scrounging around the living areas for whatever fits?

Government issued uniforms for practice/training. Scrounging for relaxing wear.
