True shot barrage
This thread is to discuss anything related to the RP Black Rainbows. Pure OOC and no IC's.
That includes character profiles (bios and pictures), character development, plot discussion and any other ideas/concerns.
Though if you'd rather keep a plot relatively secret from other players for surprise element then that's best managed through pm's as you already know.
...and I'll get a better picture when I can work on CS 6 as opposed to MS paint on my own computer! *glares at work com*
Discuss away then. And I'll answer your questions shortly Ash (even though this is the 3rd time I've assured this).
But I will!

Updated Antaeus's profile on the BR Wikia: http://blackrainbows.wikia.com/wiki/Antaeus and updated the S.E.O page with a little bit of information too. http://blackrainbows.wikia.com/wiki/...n_Organisation I plan on working on Coil's and Bella's profile pages soonish too.
Also James' SEO logo is the best thing ever.

I will be updating the Wikia more as more stuff about my characters get revealed! :B
Regardless, below is the summary I've sent off to Kim today. It only includes events from the time Kim left (page 10 on our previous forum) to... now. lol
~500 pages crunched into 8! Hope it's coo', guys!
Also, thanks to Ash for helping out. Would still be writing this if he didn't do half of it for me lol
Runners' locations: Glitch, Seipher, & Hikari are being held in a prison, where Wren, Kenneth, & Mordie break in to save them. Xell's group consists of Lani, Jay, Nathan, Reni, & himself. Dolly is being held captive by Julien.
On the Vegas Streets, Athena and O'shea are shopping. O'shea buys a pink shirt. Athena messages Jack about it, and while she's looking through her crystal ball to see where Jack's at, she receives a reply from him, even though the crystal ball shows that he didn't send one. Kenneth had previously mugged Jack off the mobile and is using it to fish for information from the other Dark Lords.
Xell’s group is gathering information on Canticle’s location from Leandra, a serving girl; Nathan’s memory whites out and he wanders off. He leaves the building and is confronted by a metallic dragonfly, which displays a hologram of a green scientist capybara named Arogi Faul, whom Nathan does indeed remember, from before the incident which causes his subsequent memory losses. Faul desires his “princess” back. The hologram cuts off. The rest of Xell’s group go to look for him, to no success. Leandra returns to Mistress Canticle’s domain, room 6:124. Xell and Leandra agree to meet back up again and meet Mistress Canticle when their entire group is together, so as to not potentially receive any snide penalty from Julien who tells them to ‘all’ search for her.
From within the Raverwar Fire Palace’s Mirror Halls, Julien curses at Illiachen (Lani’s sword) from afar, since she withholds Lani from her dangerous memories. He summons Laura (was Jillian but I changed her name due to reasons both relevant and irrelevant to the RP >___>), who comes along with Dolly. Dolly accuses Julien of doing something sinister to Laura, but they both deny it.
Xell’s group make their way to the Globe Hotel. In short, it is spherical-shaped and looks like the Earth from outside, inside a circle that revolves around the Grand Stage located in the center of the bottom floor. The bottom floor has extravagants such as a swimming pool, gym, leisure center, clothing shops, restaurants, and the like. Two floors beneath lie a casino. Each room is themed after a particular region (city/country/state), such as Egypt, Chicago, Japan, New York, and Rome. There was also a simulated weather system, meant to reflect the outside weather and time of day, at the very top of the 50 floor Hotel.
A chameleon and chipmunk named Eric and Precious have been tossed out of the casino, having been accused of cheating, and bump into Xell’s group along the way. Eric exclaims that Precious has lost her mask inside the casino, but since they are forbidden from returning, Xell’s group agrees to retrieve it for her. As the crew goes into the casino, Lani makes a lucky bet, and then finds the mask broken, luckily not completely shattered. Precious is disheartened, but she regains happiness quickly, and she and her partner take off just as quickly.
In the Vegas Prison, Kenneth, Mordie, Glitch, Seipher, and Wren are being shot at. Kenneth uses his belief powers to summon a giant red demon, and using the guarddogs’ shock to their advantage, the Trial Runners knock them out. Wren warns Kenneth about being too open about his belief powers. Seipher insists on finding Hikari; Kenneth and Seipher go to look for her while the other four agree to get out. The ventilation ducts Hikari had been crawling through suddenly collapses, and O’shea and Athena are in the room with her.
At the slave compound, a young coyote seems eager to join the upcoming Trial, though the others shoot down his confidence, including a silent character named Freedom. A nameless blond feline in a dirty red dress stops working, causing the others to pause momentarily, and catches the attention of the guard captain rhino Flint. She requests to see the Dark Lord, under the notion that she wishes to help kill one of the Runners.
At the Mirror Halls, Dolly asks Julien why she isn’t a slave, and Julien replies that with Viola May’s (the boss girl from the end of Circle 1) death, Laura is in need of a new playmate. He asks if Dolly wishes to be Laura’s friend for life; “Deal?” He shakes her hand and she collapses, sealing the deal. Flint arrives outside the door with the feline behind him, and Laura leaves with the unconscious Dolly through a vortex. Julien looks into her past/emotions and all, and before taking her any further, he gives Scar an assignment—a list.
Back in Vegas, Nathan bumps into two individuals clothed in brown cloaks; one a giant, and the other curvaceous. They criticize him for his failure to prepare for Nevada’s weather and give him some new weather-appropriate clothes. They request him to meet with them later at the Globe Hotel. As the duo leaves, Nathan realizes that they’re members of the SEO, a group directly tied into his, and Wraith’s past.
In the prison, Athena taunts, insults, and attacks Hikari, coming close to killing the cat before O’shea snaps her out of her obsessive vengeful state (having taunted her about taking away her childhood and her brother); he says he doesn’t want her to lose her sense of reason, but apparently there’s deeper reason behind his plea. Before Athena can reply, she is shot in the wrist – by Seipher, with Kenneth at his side. O’shea shoots at Kenneth and misses, and Seipher rescues Hikari from Athena. It turns out Athena has not really been shot; it was Kenneth’s belief ability. Athena moves to kill Kenneth, but she is knocked down by a skateboard: Mordie joins the fray. Athena notices something’s changed within Mordie (that she’s been bitten by Julien) and taunts her, though the mouse fails to understand her. Then Athena moves to kill her, but is stopped by Wren; she knocks Mordie unconscious (again) regardless. O’shea aims to shoot Kenneth, but is stopped short from the surrounding screens and monitors blacking out: Glitch joins the fray. He yells at the others to leave, so he and Wren would tidy things up.
The green dog inn-keeper Zach appears behind Glitch and starts dragging him away, leaving only Wren with the two enemies, who want some answers from him. Athena questions on why he’s working with weak allies. Before Wren can answer, Jack steps in. He chides Athena and O’shea for interrupting his Circle’s proceedings – as the Runners were to be given a day off. Athena snaps back, saying she’s there because of the phone incident she’s witnessed earlier. He pulls out his own phone, and Athena denies being crazy. Jack escorts Wren outside, where Seipher, Hikari, Kenneth, and the unconscious Mordie are.
Jack apologizes and opens a healing vortex for the five (Glitch shows up a bit too late). Before leaving, acknowledges that Kenneth has his phone; Wren is the only other person who knows of this. Jack makes their two phones duplicates of one another, so that if one uses their phone, the other can see what they are doing. Zach leaves without word on his motives. The six make way for the Globe Hotel.
Athena and O’shea talk; Jacob was engaged in illegal activities regarding drugs before his death. During the incident of his death, Wren had been shot and Jacob’s neck had been sliced… Julien approaches them and warns against interrupting in Jack’s affairs again.
At the Globe Hotel, Xell’s group go to eat. Lots of pizza (as ordered by Canticle to be delivered to them).
Kenneth’s group arrives by the entrance, and Glitch demands to eat. They meet the other four, bringing everyone together – though Nathan was still off elsewhere.
There they begin to eat and talk amongst themselves, sharing information and discussing their plans for the future. Kenneth had already gotten everyone rooms on the topfloor, and considering how late it was getting, they decide to spend the night there before looking for Nathan and Mistress Canticle in the morning. Over dinner they all share information about their powers and capabilities so they know how to fight together in the future. They all then leave to go to their respective rooms, choosing a particular theme that resonates with them. One of the topmost floor room’s is already occupied, despite how the floor should be offlimits to everyone else, but no one makes a big deal of it.
Athena, O’shea, and Zach watch the action from within the Hall of Mirrors.
At the strike of midnight, a procession of people enter the Hotel, as it slowly begins to build into a thunderstorm outside. Elsewhere in the Hotel, a team of invisibly cloaked soldiers arrive, taking positions throughout the Hotel. The group of people that entered the Hotel walk to the center stage, revealing themselves to be Jack, ringmaster of the second circle, and the rest belonging to the Synthetic Eden Organization; a mysterious group filled with genetically enhanced soldiers with mysterious powers.
At the strike of midnight, Jack begins to play on the piano located in the central stage, with his assistant Valentine playing on a violin. They use their magic to erect a barrier outside the Hotel, preventing anyone from escaping or coming into the building. The experiments and soldiers begin to subsequently massacre every living person inside the Hotel, bar the Trial Runners.
There are five SEO genetic experiments:
The chameleon and chipmunk Coil and Baltimore whom Xell’s group had befriended earlier in the day. Coil has camoflauge and luck abilities, and use wrist mounted wires to attack. Baltimore is a mime, and can construct invisible objects using her hands. There is also the giant scorpion/Hercules beetle hybrid Antaeus, who has massive strength, armour and the ability to leech the lifeforce of whomever his tail stabs. The curvaceous praying mantis Bella Rose is able to protrude metal blades from her forearms, and the vicious femme fatale begins a violent, bloodsoaking dance. Cecil Bonaparte, an albino otter with good looks rounds out the ‘Forbidden Fruit’ team, and he’s able to generate a high-pitched white light designed to blind his opponents.
Rounding out the villains is Frostbite, who still inhabits Wraith’s body, and who wants little more than to ‘play’ with Glitchie.
The Trial Runners are all woken up from the sounds of the massacre below. They look over the veranda to see all the chaos, and realize Jack’s behind it. No sooner do they awake and start conversing between themselves on what they should do, they’re ambushed by the invisible Eric Coil. He uses his weapons to strike at and cut away at the veranda, sending Xell, Kenneth, Seipher, and Hikari plummeting to the ground below. Across the Hotel, Mordie, Serenity and Lani watch in horror, Wren nowhere to be seen. Lani jumps off from the 50th floor after them, hoping to somehow give the free falling group a hand.
Mordie and Serenity get separated as they search for Glitch and Wren, and Serenity then gets attacked by Arogi Faul, the man Nathan met earlier in the Vegas Streets. He has come to steal back his ‘princess’ for SEO. Mordie encounters a human girl who has her leg partially eaten by Frostbite-controlled Wraith, who then targets Glitch once he’s in sight.
Glitch has another hallucination of Laura and follows her to Jack’s stage, where he leaps in to attack the madman, but is held back by Valentine. The two exchange taunts before Frostbite snags Glitch’s scarf and drags him elsewhere to fight.
The freefalling group are saved by Xell who uses his tiger claws. He becomes transported to a seeming meeting with Julien, who offers him a deal to be able to save his companions. Xell doesn’t have much choice. The next thing they know, all of them are safely on the ground without a scratch. But they don’t have much time to celebrate, as the giant Antaeus is upon them. He has a history with Xell and demands a confrontation with him, alone. The rest of the group rushes to attack the giant, but he easily defeats them. He sends Lani flying back up into the air to the 25th floor, and onto a midair catwalk that crosses the Hotel. There she meets the deadly Bella Rose, and the two become ensconced into a battle of blades.
During this time, Julien rides a dragon to Canticle’s location, hollering a threat directed to her towards the skies.
Kenneth’s thrown across the Hotel and lands, luckily enough, in the swimming pool. As he gets out, he meets Cecil, who acts like a friend at first. But Kenneth’s first priority is to get back to Xell and help him. As he turns to leave, Cecil attacks him with an electrified baton. His prey won’t escape that easily and he WILL be granted the attention he so deserves.
Seipher lands on the 18th floor, where he soon becomes greeted by the mute chipmunk Baltimore. Seipher initially assumes her to be a helpful ally, afterall she’s only a small child, however things quickly escalate and the three tailed fennec finds himself in his own battle to survive.
Hikari’s attempt at using her charged cannon is knocked off course as Antaeus smacks it towards the ground below her feet. She falls into the casino below, with rubble falling all about her.
Mordie makes her way to the bottom floor, singing almost disillusionedly to the Hungarian classic Jack and Valentine were playing on the center stage. When Jack breaks her trance, Mordie nearly has a mental breakdown, having recognized the man as the one who had killed her. Despite her coming to the Center Stage with no effort from the other characters, Jack allows her to run off and aid her teammates. She follows a beam of sunlight – the strange scientist girl she met earlier, named Fiona, struggles to fight off SEO soldiers. The sunlight from Fiona’s blaster sends Mordie into her first two breakdowns – in a monstrous state of mind, she slaughters two of the SEO soldiers. Mordie recovers only to find Fiona calling her a monster.
Elsewhere in Vegas, Julien catches Glace attempted to mug him and converts her into a vampire.
Returning to the Globe Hotel: Antaeus now has Xell to himself, and they begin battling. Xell doesn’t recognize who his opponent is at first, but later comes to the conclusion from his taunting that it was one of his old soldier companions; Sydney, whom he had left behind on the battlefield, believing to be dead after he gave those fateful wrong orders to his troops. Antaeus recounts his story, and how he was saved and brought back to life stronger than ever by SEO, and will now do whatever it is they order for him to do. Their battle grows desperate. Xell is outclassed, and the only way he’d be able to fight back is to undergo a sinister transformation, the result of his midfall deal with Julien.
Glitch and Frostbite bring their battle to the rooftop. Glitch plans to draw out Frostbite long enough to recall him back to his domain as opposed to within Wraith, which means knocking both of them out in the end; Frostbite’s power is unpredictable with Wraith’s unstable body as his host, and Glitch could control him better.
Above the 50th floor, Coil goes to destroy the simulated weather system, only to find it already destroyed by Julien’s warrior, Scar. Coil doesn’t know who he is or why he’s there, but if he’s on their side it’s not important.
On the top floor, Wren encounters a contingent of soldiers, and in brutal fashion dispatches them. Jack watches the affair throughout his piano’s special monitors, before Wren promptly makes himself go offline. Jack is having the time of his life.
In the earlier locked room on the top floor, a soldier squadron investigate it, with their mission still to be to kill any and every innocent guests left in the building. There they are attacked and brutally killed one by one by a mysterious figure, who is revealed to be Nathan. Whilst he is unable to make new memories he remembers SEO from before his incident, he has personal ties with them, and he vows to do everything he can in order to stop them continuing this massacre. As he steps outside the room, he is confronted by Eric Coil, who remembers Nathan from ‘the good old days’. The two become engrossed in a deadly battle, tumbling from one floor to another. They interrupt Serenity and Arogi Faul, as well as the weasel Jay. Nathan buys both Jay and Serenity enough time to run away, as he is stabbed in the hand by Coil. Nathan grabs Coil and throws him over the balcony again to the ground below.
Lani and Bella’s battle continues, and Lani quickly becomes overwhelmed and on the defensive. Bella keeps attacking, causing small cuts across her whole body, and stabbing her in the foot. Try as she might to fight back, Lani quickly grows powerless. From above, Nathan and Coil land on the 25th floor walkway, and Wren walks in to join the fracas as well, creating a 3 vs 2 situation.
Nathan wastes no time and continues his assault on Coil. Coil uses his razor sharp wire to grab Nathan’s arm and entangle it. Nathan uses the opportunity to aim his gun at the invisible chameleon and shoot him, but he loses his memories at the critical moment. In that brief moment of mental loss, Coil severs Nathan’s arm, the shock and pain sending him unconscious. Coil turns to Wren and keeps him busy, as Bella faces Lani, who is paralyzed and unable to move due to Bella’s pheromone powers. She toys with the girl whom she has developed a fancy for, and throws her sword off the walkway. She’ll play with Lani when she’s dealt with Wren.
On the ground, Kenneth and Cecil’s battle continues. Kenneth manages to trick Cecil with an image of a water demon, and in that time begins to escape and lead Cecil with a merry chase across the ground floor. He eventually traps Cecil in a restaurant’s kitchen, and uses his belief powers to fool the otter from noticing the smell of gas inside. Kenneth lights and flicks a cigarette into the locked kitchen. As Cecil reaches for the back exit and Kenneth walks away, the restaurant explodes.
Hikari wakes up in the casino floor after a dream involving her and her brother on a beach. She finds herself embroiled in battling soldiers who are killing innocent people.
At the slave compound, a cheetah boy is being tossed and retossed into a volcano for failing to comply and work alongside the other prisoners. Jacob confronts the trio harassing him, but is met with insults and disrespect. He leaves the site vowing to make a change. In the meantime, a stoic fennec named Freedom befriends an eager coyote named Dave.
In the Globe Hotel, Xell’s transformation is complete as his wings have grown to a larger black size, with sinister red eyes appearing across it. Antaeus doesn’t have much time to register what has happened before Xell attacks. He’s able to dissolve his body into an almost searing acid type ability, and begins to dissolve Antaeus’ amour. At this point their battle doesn’t last much longer as Antaeus has brought Xell to Jack’s stage as per orders. Xell wants to fight against him, but the central stage is protected by a barrier formed by Valentine’s shadow demons. And if he does, Jack has no qualms with executing both the unconscious Nathan, who is brought down by Coil, or Hikari, who was defeated in the casino below. Xell can do nothing but sit and wait.
A beam shot by Fiona’s blaster breaks open a hole in the ceiling, knocking Frostbite in; Glitch rushes for the stairs. Mordie, insane, kills Fiona before passing out. Glitch bumps into Seipher in the meantime, who had been tied up and dragged by Baltimore’s invisible rope. He frees the fennec, but locks himself back into a duel with Frostbite, eventually emerging as the victor with Frostbite returning back to Glitch as his host – but both hedgehogs Wraith and Glitch pass out as a result. Seipher is left to fight off Baltimore alone, until Wraith wakes up – his normal self. Wraith uses ice powers to freeze up Baltimore so she’s no longer a threat. Defeated.
At Canticle’s, Julien makes his way inside and challenges Canticle to Double Dummy Bridge. Glace returns to her former state (only temporary) and wanders off to the library.
Back at the Globe Hotel, Lani’s mind struggles to free itself and becomes enraptured in her own thoughts and memories. As Bella and Wren battle, Lani breaks free from her paralysis by transforming into an uncontrollable, raged filled dragon, who attacks friend and foe alike. Bella tries to battle her but is defeated by Lani’s lightning fueled breath attack, but not before Bella destroys the walkway. Wren grabs onto the freefalling dragon Lani and tries to control her. They land on the ground before the central stage. She sees and somehow recognizes Xell, and chases after him. Xell begins to fly across the Hotel with Lani in pursuit, trying to appeal to her senses. He momentarily incapacitates her by flying her into one of the floors.
With Glitch being pushed around in a trolley, Seipher and Wraith run around looking for the others until they bump into Kenneth, who leaves subsequently. They then come across a mirror, where Wraith Wolf offers an escape route for the trio. Wraith goes in. While Seipher is contemplating, Scar approaches him and wordlessly demands he hands over Glitch. In a weakened state, Seipher attempts to fight him off; Wraith Wolf aids him by putting Scar to sleep.
At the central stage, Jack and Valentine are joined by the weakened and powerless Mordie. Xell and Wren don’t have much chance to battle against them, instead only being able to listen to the madman’s plans. Above, dragon Lani breaks free, and charges down towards the ground below. The soldiers gunfire has no effect, until Jack himself comes to play. He uses his shadow powers to surround and capture Lani, the next instant having her plummet unconsciously. She lands onto the stage, destroying Jack’s piano, much to the Victorian gentleman’s dismay.
Whilst not all of the Trial Runners have been assembled, Jack decides to instead carry on with his performance and begin the next stage of his plan. Everything so far was just the opening ceremony for his Circle. Jack shows Xell and Wren images of news reports outside, across the city, showing the massacre inside. However, the soldiers and genetic experiments have been replaced by the Trial Runners, essentially framing them for the massacre, much to their horror.
Jack says that his circle involves two options for success: The first being to pursue him and the SEO soldiers/experiments back to the SEO compound and steal back the evidence of the real perpetrators. The second is to follow a series of clues and hints throughout the city in order to prevent the detonation of a bomb that has been declared to explode in 48 hours. As the Trial Runners reflect on their choices, Kenneth arrives with Baltimore whom he had rescued. Upon realizing that she was actually one of the SEO experiments, he holds her ‘hostage’, hoping to turn the tables on the situations. But Jack dismisses her and says that anyone who cannot defend themselves is worthless and to be left behind. Antaeus agrees. Her partner, Coil, as much as it pains him, says nothing. He’s too much of a coward to be able to intervene and protect her, and remains silent. The little chipmunk girl is betrayed by the people she calls family.
Jack and his crew, including all of the unconscious and dead soldiers leave the Hotel through a vortex, leaving the Trial Runners to struggle behind with the authorities who now consider them terrorists. Serenity is also taken by Jack and Faul, back to the SEO compound, giving the Trial Runners added incentive to want to rescue her and stop Jack.
Sometime during the chaos, Strychnyne from Circle 1 creates a vortex to warp him into the Globe Hotel.
It turns out that Wren understands sign language and helps translate for Baltimore, who vows to return to the slave compound. In return for the Runners not taking her life, she promises to help them out the Globe Hotel. Lani, awakening, loses her trust in Xell upon seeing his transmogrified wings; Xell finds and returns Illiachen to her, and though the sword trusts the dragon, Lani is still unsure. Seipher, who returns to the main group with Glitch, goes ballistic upon seeing Baltimore in their team.
At the Raverwar Fire Palace’s dining room, the feline considers the events that passed; Julien had granted her a gun containing six bullets which can send a soul into nothingness upon landing a killing shot. A heron guard named Scott watches over her. They are approached by Laura and Dolly, with Laura asking for the whereabouts of her father.
In the Hall of Mirrors, a Dark Lord named Forrest, a lavender hyena, passes by the room and is shooed off by Athena, who calls him a creep.
The SEO soldiers and experiments return to the SEO compound; Jack makes banter with the Director, Mr. Black. Jay had accidentally joined them, having put on the armor of a dead SEO solider in hopes that the soldiers would pass by him and not kill him. He is approached and taunted by three other passing SEO experiments, and Coil retires to his room and makes a heartwarming phone call in the meantime.
Back at the Globe Hotel, police forces outside burst in. Strychnyne starts raising the dead.
Baltimore guides the Runners into the casino and sneaks them into the underground sewage system. Glitch wakes up and throws a bit over Baltimore being in the group, and Seipher joins in a second time; Xell and Kenneth snap at the two. Tension high in the atmosphere, they eventually reach the end of the sewers and rest at an abandoned hospital… only to find that Mordie had wandered off. In her own room, she gives into the temptation and drinks from bags of blood. The others split up to find her, and Hikari wakes up in the meantime.

SECURITY BREACH! Get her!
Yup...seems good to me. Summaries are hard to write. (long) You did well.
not sure if you saw my message, Pach, but Reni is purple, not pink. Not that big of a deal (Although she says it is XP ) but...yeah.
