    Default [Nexus] Council

    The Council Building is a small two story building near the Remnant HQ. It has a helicopter pad on top, but out of sight, it has a pair of extensive sub-basements. Of course, those are only accessible to Remnant personnel. There is heavy security inside the front door, but only heavy scanners and armed guards show themselves. The hallway is empty of decoration and doors, leading only upstairs and to a large room with dark gray walls, a large teardrop shaped table made of mahogany, and comfortable chairs. In the center of the table is a holographic display of Inside, lacking many military assets of course, and off to the side of the room, is a large bay window, currently closed by metal blinds.

    Vasquez sits at the tip of the teardrop, and waits for the others to arrive. The teleblockers, reality anchors, and the like are shut off for now.

    Pretty much the standard rules concerning most of the threads. No Godmodding, LOLDOOM posts without permission, or complete destruction (or similar things) to ruin the building.

    And the first person to arrive is Quinn, from GLoG...



    ...who (given that the reality anchors and blockers and all that are turned off) quite possibly emerges from a Psionic Dimension Door. And nods to Vasquez.

    When Quinn suddenly arrives, the teleblockers and other restraints suddenly slam shut around the place, and multiple gun turrets pop up inside the room. An audible whirr begins as several charge, but Vasquez waits for the last possible second to shut them down. "Take the front door next time."

    "Don't leave your wards down as an invitation for people to arrive in the fashion they're accustomed to next time," Quinn retorts, not reacting at all to the gun turrets, whirring, or Vasquez's waiting to shut them down, as she takes a seat.

    Cessie seems to be the second person to arrive. She can't teleport or anything like that and flying seems unnecessary and might come as showing off, so she's just walking.

    Dressed in her usual dress she carefully approaches the council building, assuming she needs to be checked up somewhere.

    Entrance

    Cessie will have to go through the scanners and walk past an armored glass window with a uniformed guard stationed inside. The scanner detects weapons and powerful magics, but also looks for things possessing people or similar things that might try to control a person unwillingly. Even if weapons and magic are detected, she's waved past. In the hallway, is a pair of what appears to be two massive suits of bronze armor, holding giant swords, pointed downward and positioned at a guard. They don't move, and aren't magical.

    To anyone who knows such things, they're the same sort of power armor that Edijar wears, marking them as the Remnant Praetorian Guard.

    They still won't stop her from heading up if she wishes.

    The mage heads up the stairs then and start to look around the place a bit. Sadly her player must deadtime now so no more reactions from Cessie in a while.

    Suddenly Zee!

    Though not in the same fashion as Quinn.

    She'll be coming in through the front door as well, though she doesn't appear to be nearly as pristine as the mage who came in before her. Her attire is a bit tattered, sporting a few burn marks and acid holes. One eye is ever so slightly swollen.

    Looks like she's favoring her left leg a bit, too.

    Once she gets inside she'll wave cheerfully at the no doubt silent guards. "Hiya! Where am I supposed to be going? And I really hope this isn't a trap of some kind. I'm a bit tuckered out already, between you and me!"

    Because if it were a trap they would tell her, right?

    "Is this Empire sort of stuff? Is it true that a bunch of the people in charge got yanked back to Dee See's home universe?"
    she gasps slightly. "Were they abducted by aliens! That's happened before!"

    The scanners will probably have no idea what the hell to make of Zee. She's not magical in the least. Or at least no more magical than a cuttlefish might be. So if a cuttlefish would light up the machines then Zee probably will as well.

    She isn't being possessed by anything. And the only weapon she has on her person is weapons-grade silliness.

    No, not that Magtok, this one! He's decked out in his finest gray and purple suit, probably hiding all sorts of crazy contraband in it, too! He strides in with pride and arrogance, knowing full well that he's the only one here awesome and influential enough to count as his own organization and-

    Wait, what? Zee? What the fudge are you doing here? I thought this was supposed to be some big important conference full of influential people discussing the fate of Inside. Not to be rude or anything, but are you sure you count for that sort of thing? You're not exactly a League or a Organization or an Association or anything.

    "Hiya Magtok!" Zee waves in her usual exuberant fashion. "Oooh, we're here to talk about what's going to happen Inside? That sounds really important! I thought they were just going to give us some neat hats!"

    The guy who gave her the note had a really nice hat after all. A nice brown hat. Zee really wishes that she had a nice hat that actually existed and this sounded like a great place to get one!

    The security had really confused her, though...

    But given that this is apparently some sort of political thing it makes a bit more sense...

    Hmmm... politics... Poly-ticks... Lots of giant mites? Wonder if those words have any real connection to each other...

    Zee stares off blankly at a nearby wall for several seconds as a number of completely unrelated subjects filter through her mind.

    "Do you think they make tiny hats for scorpions here?"
    Zee inquires of the cyborg. She sounds somewhat concerned that scorpion hats won't be available here. "Or just the normal sized ones we'll be getting? What if one of the people who attends is a scorpion?"

    Grace enters, gesturing for Psi to follow her.

    Or wait. Is that Grace? Something looks off. Quite off, actually, on second glance. Rather than pink, she seems to be themed on a fairly solid red color, which is actually the main color of her suit as well, rather than black.

    On top of the wardrobe change, she only has a single horn, from the center of her head, and it is somewhat smaller than Grace's, and on top of that, she has two tails instead of three. There are some variances in general form as well, as this person seems taller and slimmer compared to Grace's more well rounded appearance.

    In all, there is enough similarity to where one can easily make comparisons and perhaps be confused for a second, but enough difference to where it is notable. Nonetheless, she makes her way inside, where the scanner will detect no weapons or magic on her. If questioned, she'll state that she is Grace's representative.

    The guard behind the armored glass facepalms at Zee and activates the speaker. "Just head up and Commander Vasquez will explain it all."

    He'll raise a hand to stop Grace's representative and Psi though, and a couple guards will raise their hands to stop her at the sensors too. "Name and Invitation?"

    "Poise. Representative of Grace and Aurora."
    Poise draws out the paper that was handed to Grace and holds it up with two fingers.
    "In case my word is not enough."
    She explains, offering the paper to the guards. After all, Grace (and Poise) had no more use for it.

    Dipsnig arrives on Viima, having decided that everyone in the HQ is a little bit too busy to be of any help. Hopefully it's not some sort of trap, though he won't put it past the ex-Imperials.

    Zee, I...don't think they offer hats here. Made for or from scorpions, I...I just don't see it happening. Maybe.

    He tries to hurry right past her, hoping that maybe she's here for some totally unrelated event and that his ego won't take any further damage today.

    Zee looks rather crestfallen.

    She had really been looking forward to a new hat and Magtok just crushed her hopes and dreams. Maybe once she gets to the conference room the guy behind the glass was talking about everything will be better?

    And so she'll head that way!

    ...

    No doubt Magtok will be dismayed to discover that she's heading in the same direction he is. She heads up toward to the room with the funny shaped table! And while walking she pulls off the hat she isn't wearing and yanks a sammich out of it.

    The hat is replaced on her head, where upon it ceases to exist.

    Then she begins eating the sammich.

    Nom nom nom!

    The mage have started to look around the council chamber, probably wondering why so many women wore male clothes around here. She guesses it's a cultural thing.

    She had meet a lot of women that worn male clothes after all.

    At the moment she is waiting for the council itself to start however, looking around at all the interesting people she is going to share the room with.

    Dipsnig does not order Viima to pounce on Magtok since while it would be funny, it would also be likely to piss off Vasquez and ruin this whole thing for the goblin. So he just waits for the meeting to start, looking around. Hm. At least one person he doesn't know...

    "Identifying," whispers Psi. "Identifying subjects as leaders of the various factions within 'Nexus'. All data logged."

    When Psi arrived, she tried to go to the different factions and obtain information. Unfortunately, she was unable to meet the actual leaders. As of now, she is logging the leaders' information to be able to identify them.

    Magtok takes a seat, and shakes his head.

    Okay the suspense is killing me, so could you just tell me, Zee? Are the Imps freaking out about your edritchy nonsense? Did Raril bribe and/or sleep his way into getting you here? Did you accidentally trip over an army when I wasn't looking? Seriously, what in the world are you representing here? I've got all those Magbots and MagSat and MagCorp and everything, Quinn has GLoG, Dippy has NO, Person-Who-Looks-Like-Grace's-Sister has Aurora, Gordon comes from AMEN, and my guess is the girl with the dress is with HALO. Where the fudge does your influence come from?
