Re: RPG-Superhumans

Desdemona was amazed at the scooter, she hadn't seen anything quite like it before. It took her a few seconds to answer Jack, "People are always judgmental. I don't think it matters what you do. So this thing is considered manly?" She asked truly not knowing.

If it bleeds, we can kill it.

Re: RPG-Superhumans

"Pssh you better believe it.  After one final turn into a deserted section of warehouses Desdemona told him to pull over here.  Immediately upon arriving they heard the sound of a brawl ensuing.  And this sounded like no super humans brawl.  Just a regular fisticuffs brawl.

"Are you sure this is the right place?"

"This is where I can feel him."

Jack pulled out his sword and entered the warehouse.  In the dimly lit expanses he saw no one but two apparent civilians duking it out.  One of them noticed and called out to him.

"Behold Nicky!  It's the great and mighty Jack come to your rescue.  Can't handle me alone?"

"Shut up Terry.  This is between you and me."

Jack immediately recognized the second voice as Darklight's.  But the first voice.  Wait, it sounded different when not distorted by the whispers of a shadow.  Voidhunter.  He said the first thing that came to mind.

"Your name is Terry!  That's rich!  I was expecting some uber-cool name like Blade or something.  Oh don't mind us we're just spectating."

Re: RPG-Superhumans

Desdemona followed Jack in and tilted her head slightly to observe the two opponents.

"Oh and look, Jack's brought a girl to help him." Void said, his voice thick with sacasm.

Desdemona raised an eyebrow and looked at Jack, "I'm guessing he doesn't ride a scooter."

If it bleeds, we can kill it.

Re: RPG-Superhumans

"No see it's manly only because your manly enough to ride something unmanly thus proving your total and complete manliness."  He struck a few body-building poses to demonstrate his point.  But I hear the ladies these days like men who are in touch with their feminine side.  So I'm covered from both angles."  He winked.

She again tilted her head.  "Well I guess you don't quite keep up with the times when you are asleep huh."

Jack sat down watching the other two punch each other's lights out.  He pulled out all his weapons and laid them out in front of him.  He began the laborious task of cleaning them.

"Just to pass the time.  Brotherly grudges can be drawn out you know."

Re: RPG-Superhumans

Desdemona found this world utterly confusing at times. But she believed Jack, he seemed the trustworthy type. She sat down next to him, though hovering slightly. She waved her hand and a pack of cards appeared. "Want to play?"

"You know about cards?" Jack said with surprise.

"A little, I was learning something called prode or poke or something or other." Desdemona said as she shuffled the cards. "Snap is so much easier."

"Why not, it's got to be more interesting than cards." Desdemona said with a touch of jest.

Re: RPG-Superhumans

Jack settled in.  "It all started many moons ago...  Sorry.  Always wanted to say that.  Anway as a kid my parents were Supers.  Two quite well known ones at that.  They were the greatest, we did a whole bunch of stuff together.  Fishing, playing sports, even some sparring.  That's when they found out I had the photo-reflexive memory.  In case you missed what that means I can copy any fighting style to par after viewing it once.  And then they realized that I had a healing factor after they learned the limitation of my power.  I had the chance to play road hockey with a famous player from the NHL once.  So I made some amazing plays and he encouraged me to join an Ice Hockey team.  UNfortunately I hadn't watched any sort of skating and as soon as I stepped onto the ice I fell and saw my elbow bend the wrong way towards my face when I fell on it.  My parents came out onto the ice expecting to have me rushed to the hospital but were immensly surprised when they found the arm normal."

"So you do not automatically learn all aspects, only what you directly see?"

"Correctumundo.  I was kicked off the team for being different than all the others.  Went home and bawled my eyes out.  My parents later explained to me how I was different and how many people do not like change.  So I moved around a lot after that.  I was around 16 when my wold fell apart.  We had just moved to Mission City and my parents had already resumed there superhero duties.  I was really popular in school because I was quarterback on the football team.  Gotta love the Peyton Manning/ Tom Brady style mixed into one.  It really worked for me.  Life was good.  I had just asked a girl out on a date.  We had been going out for about a year.  We'd sit and talk for hours at a little restaurant of ours.  One time I let slip I was a mutant of sorts.  She immediately left me.  Just left me at our favourite restaurant.  Never returned my calls or anything.  I was really depressed. 

Void hearing all this over the fight shouted out, "Very depressing Jack.  A bit of teenage angst sent you on your quest to become a super!  How pitiful."

"Stop jumping in to conversations! ((Inside joke))  The rudeness of some people.  Anwyway.  I though my life was over, I was so happy with her.  Stupid teenager.  Then one day a few weeks later after coming home from school the Chief of Police greeted me.  He held up an picture of an old foe of my parents that they thought they'd apprehended.  Apparently he escaped.  And tracked down my parents.  And murdered them both in cold blood.  I ran away from my house. Everything I had ever loved in about a month came crashing down on me.  For the next few years I spent my time wallowing in self-pity and hunting for that villain with a thirst for revenge.  I was dangerously close to crossing the line of hero and villain.  I finally found him when I was 19.  He didn't even know it was coming.  I slaughtered him.  But doing that gave me no comfort.  It was only the comfort of my new-found friend Darklight that snapped me out of it.  He showed me the light.  Pardon my pun.  I've been doing small time hero work ever since then.  Then I got involved in this.  And basically that's my story."

Re: RPG-Superhumans

Desdemona didn't understand everything Jack said but she go the gist of it. She took Jack's hand and weaved her fingers through his in an action of comfort. "It's human to fear what you don't know. Believe me it's a truth I've seen over my entire life... and death I guess you'd say."

Desdemona looked briefly at the pair fighting. "Look at those two, they fight each other because they are different. They don't see eye to eye, yet they are brothers and cannot forgive each other."

Jack took this in, "Forgiveness seems to be a hard thing for most people."

"To be able to forgive can sometimes set you free. Darklight has a bad soul, but he has tried to redeem himself. He wants forgiveness, Void does not." Desdemona said and looked at Jack seriously, "Sometimes your closest friend can hide a dark past. No one ever truly knows another. You've just got to have faith sometimes."

If it bleeds, we can kill it.

Re: RPG-Superhumans

Strangely Jack felt immensly comforted by her hand.  The last time someone held him like that was a long time ago.  Sure there was Haze but that was meant as an attempt to hide who they really are.  This was...different.  Jack closed his eyes and focused on times past.  These last few days so much has happened.  And he was a bit overwhelmed. 

"Tell me about it.  I never even thought Darkight capable of such atrocities.  But faith and forgiveness go hand in hand."

Re: RPG-Superhumans

"Whatever Darklight's reasons are, he is trying to atone for his past." Desdemona said as she watched the two titans fight. She had almost forgotten that she was still holding Jack's hand. It was only when he gave her hand a squeeze that she remembered.

"How did you actually die?" Jack said feeling awkward asking the question.

"It was eight years after I sold my soul. My father died and I had no income to live on. I gradually starved. One night there was a huge storm with lots of thunder and lightening. I stood in the rain hoping a lightening bolt would put me out of my misery and one did." Desdemona said, her mind taking her bad to that time. She could see the dark clouds that had been illuminated with each flash of lightening, she felt her heart race at the recollection.

"That's a pretty harsh way to go." Jack said more that just a little rattled at the idea.

"The pain ended then, along with feelings. It was a release and I welcomed it." Desdemona told.

Jack looked at his hand linked with Desdemona's, "Do you want to having feelings again?"

"I've been human since, I've reached my quota twice before. I only lived for two years the first time, that was the dark ages and I was slaughtered by invaders. The second time I lived for forty six years. I lived as a nun, as you can imagine I was rather wary of men. My life was good, but I felt that something was always missing." Desdemona said, trailing off in her own thoughts.

"You didn't really answer my question," Jack said waiting for her answer.

Desdemona looked away from Darklight and Void. She turned and study Jack, "Yes I would like to have feelings again."

Haze thought for a moment, “I’m not sure. I guess I’m still taking in what they said.”

“I can understand that,” Tanis said as he looked up into the treetops.

“I guess we should get back to the others.” Haze said realising that Harry could have framed yet another one of them.

Tanis squeezed her shoulder, “Only when you’re ready.”

Haze let out a deep breath, “I’m ready.” She said as she stood.

Re: RPG-Superhumans

Jack sat there.  He was bored.  He cleaned all his weapons and spilled his entire life story to a female who was supposed to be dead yet he was developing feelings for.    He was sure a few days previous he would have shuddered and laughed at that.  But he was willing to believe anyone.  This battle didn't appear to be going anywhere.  ((Hint hint nudge nudge, MA!!))

Re: RPG-Superhumans

Void looked to the side, and made another scalding comment towards Jack, only to be rebutted in teh same instant.  That same lack of concentration allowed Darklight to land a punch to Void's jaw, sending him to his tiptoes, before crashing down on his behind.  He stood over him, and bashed his face a few more times, for good measure.

"I beat you again, Terry.  Give up, or just let me kill you."  A dagger of light appeared in his hands, held above his head as he prepared to drive it home, into Void's throat.  Void chuckled dryly.

"You never learned the relationship between light and shadow, Nick.  That lack of knowledge may end up being your undoing, you know.  You cannot have light without the dark to make it seem brighter.  You cannot have the dark without the light to make it seem more complete.  Do with me what you will, but you WILL suffer for it."

Darklight hesitated, giving their audience ample time to react...(hint hint Sev and Net wink )

Due to maintenance problems, the light at the end of the tunnel will not be in operation today.  Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

He let out a demonic houl that could be heard for miles around, and darkened the sun its self. Annoucing the arrival of the Dark Lord....and Hells favourite demon.

Re: RPG-Superhumans

((lolz, Jack has made a very power enemy.))

Jack was up in an instant.  He saw Darklight pull his light knife back for the killing blow.  Using some of his residual powers he guessed only came around as a result of an adrenaline spike, he sprinted to Nick pulling a flying towel.

"Desdemona grab Void!"

Jack and Darklight rolled across the floor.  Darklight's eyes glowed and Jack was launched of him by a blast of light.  Darklight got up and began making his way to Desdemona and Void but Jack was quick to recover and blocked Jack's path.

"Get out of my way Jack.  This is between Void and I."

"I realize that Nick.  But you don't seem to get it."

"I'll say this once more Jack.  Out. Of. My. Way."

"For your sake I can't do that Nick."

"Have it your way Jack."  Darklight launched a flurry of light balls at Jack.  Jack was quick due to his sixth sense and agility, but not quick enough.  A light beam burned his shoulder in mid jump.  He landed awkwardly on the ground.  He was immediately back on his feet. 

"You don't seem to understand Nick, did you not hear what Void said?"

Darklight just yelled and rushed Jack.  Jack saw it coming and deflected the attacks.  Darklight realzing he could not defeat Jack hand to hand flew into the air and again, began throwing light beam after light beam.  Jack dodged and dodged.  But vaulting everywhere was really tiring him out despite him being at peak physical condition. 

"Think Nick, what did he say?"

Darklight snarled and doubled his efforts. 

"Fine.  We'll citing quotes was never my strong point in English.  You can't have darkness without light, and you can't have light without the dark.  Please don't make me analyze this quote."  Darklight hesitated.

"Jack how does quoting a psychopath help you prove your point?"

"FINE.  I will analyze it!  Gosh.  What is darkness?  Anyone, anyone?"
Jack waved his hand in the air.

" Yes Jack please speak up!  Darkness is lack of light.  Complete darkness is death.  And obviously no one can survive in complete darkness.  Not even Voidy over there.  So if you take all light away shadow dies.  And can you have no shadow?  No of course not!  I still have yet to see total and complete light.  So using that logic Light and Shadow are linked correct?  If you take one away the other ceases to exist as well."

The concept suddenly dawned on him.  "I am Light, and he is Shadow..."

Void snickered.  "Took you long enough."

Jack ignored him and continued.  "You cannot live without him Nick.  As he cannot live without you.  You are reliant on each other.  So that leaves us with the last question.  We obviously can't just let him go.  What are we to do with him?"

Re: RPG-Superhumans

Drakeus rapped his cloak around him, and hoped to appear like a normal man, so he would not attract to much attention. He begain to walk down the road, and presently came accross cafe. Drakeus could sense a blackened soul in there, he entered the cafe intent on bringing yet one more soul to Lucifer...
