    A BRIEF HISTORY by the esteemed Lord Magtok
    Spoiler
    Show
    In the darkest pits of despair there lived a fearsome being, one made of pure malevolence, hatred, and madness. He had an equally dark and loathsome plan for our world, the formation of an organization to be known as Evil Incorporated, destined to spread his unhallowed name throughout the world, so that all might come to know and fear the one named Psyke_D.

    Fortunately for the rest of us, there's already a webcomic called Evil Inc. When this was pointed out by yours truly, the members of this fledgling new organization went into a frenzy. What good could an evil organization be without a suitably original, stylish, and menacing name? All sorts of suggestions were produced, everything from Vilecom (painfully bland) to Fullbladder's Fabulous Funky Foursome (Totally incorrect, as there was at least six of us by then).

    Finally, someone (and by someone I mean me) offered a suggestion even better than Evil Inc, the "Association of the Malicious, Evil, and Nefarious". Everyone immediately realized that this was by far the best name they'd ever heard of, and after a chorus of "AMEN, brother"s and nibbling on some pixies, the Association had officially begun.

    Years went by after that. In-jokes were formed, members came and went, and dictators were ousted and replaced with new dictators more swiftly than Central America during the Cold War on steroids. It was a glorious time, full of wars with EVIL, The Town, France, and HALO. (All ending in AMEN victories, aside from the last one, which was more of a cease-fire stalemate thingy)

    Lives were lost, promptly restored, and then lost again. Love blossomed between various Associates, dark feuds between others, and every manner of nonsense imaginable, but that chaotic energy, that "Burn it all and let the gods sort it out" attitude always came before anything else.

    Sadly, these days were destined to end eventually. AMEN just couldn't keep up with HALO, GLoG, and the rest of the world, and xenophobically shut its doors upon the rest of the world. A Dark Age ensued, full of newbs posting inane nonsense and old members complaining about the newbs instead of trying to better their situation, until eventually, not even the newbs were posting anymore.

    Then came hope. Most called him crazy (and they were right), others called him ridiculously optimistic, and some say he's a big smelly dragon who doesn't bathe anywhere near as much as he should (Or maybe only I say that), but everyone else called him Gordon, the new leader of AMEN. Realizing that this xenophobic age had to end, he led AMEN out of the darkness, and brought about a new age of darkness, gave us a world where AMEN is once again a serious threat. For that, we owe him our thanks. I'm still gonna stab him in the back the first chance I get, though.

    Or well, we owed him our thanks. He's sorta dead now, I think. Me and Ilpholin recently usurped the hell out of him with an awesome arena deathmatch thing, and now his smelly corpse has been exiled and stuff. She's in charge and I'm second-in-command, because responsibility smells. Weee, change!

    THE BUILDING
    Spoiler
    Show
    You donít want to know. The greatest minds of our time have studied AMENís base, only to be driven MAD by the labyrinthine, ever shifting corridors and reality-defying chambers. The base itself is sentient, and doesnít really take kindly to smartasses trying to map it. That being said, as long as you donít try too hard to make sense of the base, itís not difficult to find, say, an empty bunk, the common room, the can, the lab, et cetera. Of course, thereís much more to the base than that, but I canít tell you about it. 1) Because it would crush your little mind, and 2) because I donít wanna.

    Security Room
    Access here is limited by handprint scanner and numerical keypad. Incidentally, Ilpholin has also made it her primary room as well, getting a bed and some other things put in.

    Front Lawn
    Mister Squiggles planted various mechanical devices here, buried underground.

    HOW TO JOIN
    Spoiler
    Show
    "One of the first things that are to change is a revamping of the membership process. No longer are they to be blood pacts. The forms will be standard and require a fair bit more than just a name."

    "Furthermore, just signing them does not guarantee a place in AMEN. After that there will be a background check, followed by an interview with me. Then, if it feels like their goals and such line up with AMEN's, that's when they get in." It's a process designed to know your co-workers better!

    "That said, old members will have to go through a similar process to retain their membership. A form filled out and an interview. However, unlike incoming members, acceptance is not contingent upon a decision, but rather simple completion. So former members are in no real jeopardy of losing their place here." So long as they actually do turn in the form and talk to Ilph. No more strangers and non-members loitering around. That's just outright silly in so many ways!

    ABOUT HENCHMEN
    Spoiler
    Show
    NPC Henchmen for the most part can be godmodded, however, the named henchmen are reserved for ThePhantom to control.

    NPC Henchmen
    Spoiler
    Show
    There are 147 npc henchman, each with a css color designation such as DarkRed, LimeGreen, and Cyan. Pink is the only henchwoman and seems to be the supervisor over the rest, though she still ranks below the named henchmen. Nobody but Gordon really knows what made them take the job at AMEN, but it must have been good.

    ABOUT MECHANO-PANTHERS by Mindfreak
    Spoiler
    Show

    Classic:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Mechano-Panthers patrol the halls of AMEN(And some important rooms, like the Main Room) and are basically godmoddable by anyone with a character in AMEN. However, I'd rather you not have them do anything past their programming, which is:
    1) Subdue intruder with instant drying cement foam
    2) If 1 is not possible, kill intruder with razor sharp metal claws and spiked tail
    3) Bring body to torture room or to BioLab(if dead)

    The cement foam dissolves from a solvent that the panthers also have.

    Also, the panthers will listen to any AMEN member and will go after any people that come in that are not being accompanied by a current AMEN member. They're made of titanium as well, and are as strong and as fast as a normal panther. They will ignore orders from AMEN members if given a conflicting order from Ilpholin, and unknown to Ilpholin they will ignore an order from Ilpholin if given a conflicting one from Megan.

    Any questions?

    5w4mp:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Anyways, here you all go! 5w4mp P4n7h3r5!

    So here's the story of these new Mechano-Panthers that Megan is making for the Gnoll Village. They'll go by the name of Mechano-Panther(5w4mp), or just 5w4mp Panthers, for short.
    Anyways, here's the picture of a regular Mechano-Panther:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Now imagine that sexy beast about 66% bigger than a normal panther, and instead of delicious chrome on the metal, it's a camouflage perfect for swamps and such.
    Now, instead of the usual liquid cement and solvent the Mechano-Panthers at AMEN have, these babies instead of a flamethrower right in their mouths, not to mention the usual razor-sharp claws and teeth and tail. Plus, a couple nets big enough to catch large humanoids and slow them down a bit. It'd take a while to cut through one with a pocket knife, is what I'm saying.
    Also, they have another nasty surprise, their tails also double as sort of a taser. Except a taser that'll kill you with electricity. It's powerful enough that they could put it into a small body of water and electricute the things within about 50 feet.
    Also, they're completely waterproof, allowing them to swim in the water and sneak up on things, and they're a bit more agile than a real Panther.
    They can also see in the dark, thanks to infer-red capabilities.
    Anyways, that's about it for them. Other than saying that they'll do as the gnolls ask third, Ilpholin second, and Megan first.
    Oh, and they won't attack AMEN members, or members of the Gnoll tribe.

    Their basic tatics is to use the enviroment to their advantage, such as hiding in the foliage and pounce, or hiding underwater and delivering a nasty shock. Or just ripping things apart with their claws and flamethrower. Though if asked, they will attempt to capture things by reducing the shock of their tails, tasing the thing, and then netting it. They can also set traps, if asked. And are smart enough to plan ambushes

    Are the sounds that can be heard before Stu comes falling through the ceiling and smacking face down into the floor and cracking it.

    Deciding it might be best to stay there in absolute agony, Stu decides against moving.

    Strane to anyone Zefir managed to pass the panthers without getting noticed, maybe luck or just a bug? We never know. After all zefir is going for his way to his room as Stu fals down from the roof directly above him. The impact throws him away. Knocked against a Wall, Zefir rubs his head taking on the hood again. It needs a while until he stands up again.

    Kal strolls in to see what all the commotion's about, looking at the floor-ridden Stu, looking at the hole in the roof, looking at Zefir poking Stu with his... spear... and adding two and two and two together.
    ...
    And getting forty-seven.

    On the other hand, he might be more correct than I feel comfortable thinking about.

    "There you are!" Jeannie says, finally encountering Kal in her hall wanderings. "You know, if Her Painfulness saw how sloppy a job you're doing here, she'd disown you."

    Zefir and Stu get no notice from her, though if Stu finishes being in pain, she'll likely get far too much notice from him.
    Is it okay to skip me? Probably.

    As said in OOC it should be near impossible to note that this guy is Zefir. he still tries to hide it, but he is a half dragon now so scaled hands, much taler and such.

    Just a flower in a power suit right?

    "You know what, forget it. Ain't even worth it. Just go away. Me and this floor, we got some catching up to do." Stu says, waving his hand awkwardly. His landing was totally intentional.

    "I have a cousin named Jeannie?"
    ...
    C'mon Kal, you remember Jeannie, don't you? I mean... she's your frikkin' cousin. That idolizes you! And you did that thing one time! Remember? That one really fun thing. No, not that thing, the other thing! And there was lots of fun to be had. Think, Kal. Think hard.
    "Oh! I remember now! It's you, Jeanne-Antoinette! It's so great to see you!

    No! Not that hard!

    "Yeah yeah, I remember now." Says Kal, waving his hand to dismiss the issue.
    "So, what are you doing up here?"

    Oh jeeze, Kal! First your cousin, now your gang of misfits? You have to stop forgetting these things, man!

    Feeling slightly overwhelmed, Kal moves to sit on the nearest available surface. Which is of course, Stu's back.

    "You know, the clockwork panthers and the engineer girl and this scaly guy and the flower that came out of the roof." Jeanne gestures towards the deadtimed Zefir when she mentions the scaly guy. "Honestly, you could probably stand to tighten up your recruitment standards a bit."

    "Wait, sex? Mother? I'm in!" Stu says, just about to get up out of his pain induced stupor when he's sat on and prevented from moving anywhere. He squirms slightly.

    Yeesh. The tricky questions just don't let up around here, do they? Removing that silly hat of his to scratch at the back of his hair, the Cat Burglar takes a moment to ponder before answering.

    "Well... I think some kind of stated goal might help, maybe? Not, like, 'take over the Nexus' or something nebulous like that, something kind of medium term that people could work towards with visible results. That would probably improve cohesion, morale, as well as support the image that the new AMEN is an AMEN that gets things done."

    "Er, a communications network too. That would help, I mean. Probably. I know a guy who could set us up with some micro-transponders, if you want."
    The Cat Burglar by Ghar. Thanks!

    "Typical Stu." Zefir shakes his head as Stu stands up immediatelly.

    Then he looks up.

    "So you are this Kal guy?"

    "Wait, you mean AMEN? Pfffft-" He breaks out laughing.
    "Nah, I don't lead AMEN. I mean, could you imagine? I'd be the worst leader ever."
    He leans back on Stu, ignoring his squirming.
    Then turns to Zefir.
    "Yeah, what's it to you?"

    He points at Jeannie while talking. And then just shrugs.

    "Keep your pants on. Mom isn't here." Jeanne says to Stu. Then to Kal. "This isn't your place? You let someone else boss you around?"

    "I don't wear pants..." Stu grumbles.

    Ilpholin's Office

    "Acquire, Manage, Expand, and Neutralize. Those are our stated goals as of the last big meeting that AMEN had and everyone went to." Except the Cat Burglar.

    Granted, the goal is still nebulous, but it is designed to be nebulous for a reason. Gordon had a very specific goal and it created more schisms than group solidarity. The people here don't agree on things and they never will, so trying to force them to isn't such a great idea. Even Cat Burglar doesn't seem entirely sure on what the exact goal should be, though his idea certainly isn't wrong in and of itself.

    But aside from all that...
    "A communications network would be very helpful. I know in particular a village that needs one, above and beyond just this place. Get with Magtok or Mister Squiggles or someone else who likes that stuff and work to get me a solid com network plan so we can put it together and enact it." Congrats Cat Burglar! You've earned yourself an assignment!

    The drow looks over the form. "What is Kiroshandian?"
    [Ilpholin's Office - Hatteress]

    The Hatteress perks up upon hearing Ilpholin present this specific query to her. She shrugs off a pound or so of her military bearing. This should help her divert her attention away from the root cause of her formality during this meeting.

    "The equivocal title of Kiroshandian is conferred to the members of the fledgling yet unconditionally glorious species that results from the cross-breeding of humans and well-over 38 different alien species from chartered planets and unchartered planets alike. Curtains arising from the intermingling of species coupled with nigh imperceptible activities undertaken by nth-dimensional entities has yielded all 14 Kiroshandians that exist at any given time in most any setting."

    It would stand to reason, then, that 13 other Kiroshandians apart from the Hatteress herself exist in the Nexus right now! Expansive medical knowledge about their unique anatomy and culture might be somewhat limited, but that remains to be seen, though they normally readily dispense relevant data linked to how their bodies are set up, according to their own prerogative. Aside complete, Roxanne continues.

    "A facile overview of how we differ from humans is found in our metabolism, body structure, mental layout and capacity, and connection to some other plane. We don't eat when we find the process of eating more trouble than it is worth. We've developed a set of inner eyelids so we don't have to blink. The way we evaluate our sense of balance is a world apart from most conventional humanoids. Erm, that is to say, we don't perceive colors as most do, as they stir up more than retinal in us. We are able to interact and exist in nth-dimensional space and- Yadddah yaddah yaddah. I'm boring you will all of this-"

    Roxanne dismissively waves a hand up in the empty air surrounding her as she searches for a succinct phrase to sum up her thoughts on the matter.

    "-this altogether extravagant lecture about what a Kiroshandian is and isn't. I apologize for that. Long story short, we're similar to humans in outer appearance, but our insides are arranged differently, we don't age at all, and our reflexes are off of the charts. In fact, I've been hearing a distorted version of your voice ever since we started this conversation."

    Roxanne shifts around uneasily in her chair.

    "See, the whole prospect of this interview has me a tad flustered. I want to contribute my experience to AMEN, but..."

    "Um..."

    "I... Well..."


    It would appear that The Hatteress isn't as adept at interviewing as she would like her bewitching boss to believe.

    "I... Nevermind."
