- VILLAINS: SHADES OF GRAY - PRELUDE
It is a clear evening and the darkness, altitude and wind-chill has dropped the temperature just below most peoples’ comfort zones. Thankfully a glass tower extrudes from the top of the building and everyone is gathered on the side opposing the chilling gusts of air. The services lights on the roof have been shut down save for the exit sign bolted above the roof door and lone pulsing red light atop the point of the glass tower to warn its presence to aircraft.
Bright white spotlights are positioned on either corner of the roof and are aimed toward the earth to illuminate the grounds below. This causes a ghostly diffuse light to shine back up to your characters. The light highlights your chins and eyebrows and leaves the majority of your facial features in shadow; perfect lighting to remain semi-anonymous during this meeting.
Red Knight, Dracma and Quantum each hold information regarding the whereabouts of a missing and hidden complex located somewhere within the city. This complex has its own sustainable power source and has the potential to serve as a base of operations for many of your purposes. The information is a mix of purchase logs, contractor information, energy research documents, among other paper and electronic paraphernalia. Separately everyone has come to a dead end locating the compound or the workers, sellers, and buyers to anything relating to this hidden complex. Someone was very thorough covering up their activites.
Over a short time you all have somehow reached each other and agreed too met up in order to exchange information , connect some dots and figure out some clues. The seven of you are waiting for at least three others to arrive.

The point of this meeting is to obtain information beneficial to your alliance’s goals and it’s very unlikely that you’ll leave the roof yet alone tip the balance toward hostility during this encounter. Feel free to interact with each other until the others arrive. Please describe yourselves in your introductory posts.
Make sure to read the following post. It describes everyone’s relationship to each other and not everyone will know of the others powers.
Adam Wentworth might be wearing his power armor under his clothes somehow or maybe he carries it in a suitcase but no-one has made any connections to him and the Red Knight.
Not too many people grasp the entire picture of Showdown’s capabilities. I’d imagine that Showdown would be in his Shadow Ranger form during this encounter.
Dracma Kalis might flash his wealth and personality but it’s unlikely he’s advertising his magical powers.
Stretch’s powers may be known to Dracma Kalis given the circumstances below. Describe whether or not Stretched used his elasticity in that situation.
Hope Avery hasn’t revealed her magical powers or Lady Death and Lady Demon forms to anyone in this group.
It is unlikely that anyone would make a connection to Quantum or her powers.
Mathias Wheeler gives off a tough aura but has not powers to question.
EDIT: Everyone starts this encounter with 1 VP. The Luck feat will increase this amount.
