QUOTE (BirdWords @ Nov 25 2012, 11:02 AM)
Am I allowed to use my madness talent yet?

For example, to transform into a small child. If so, what am I going to need to roll?


QUOTE
You can. To transform into another person so different from you, you're going to need to use at least two Madness dice. You can use more, but you don't have to. Other than that, it's a normal roll, with the option to add Exhaustion as normal. It'll be against the Watch Man's Pain rating of 1.


John and Gideon take off again into the crowds of the City, dodging the passersby as they go. The Tacks Man and Officer Tock fade into the distance. Finally, after almost a full minute of running, the two of them come to a halt in the middle of an intersection to catch their breath.

At the same moment, the light at the end of the alley that Antoinette and Lewis are hiding in becomes partially blocked. Someone is standing in the end of the alley, peering in. Someone tall, and thin, in a shapeless dress, with a prominent, hooked nose.

Antoinette starts to leave, and the notices the person looking in. She tries to get a better idea of what they look like and if she's sizing them up at all.

Her temper's starting to rise. She's tired of weird monsters and running.

Nelson notices that him and the Watch Man are all alone, and decides that it's time to make his escape plan. The only real problem is the stupid handcuff trapped around your wrist. If only he was a bit smaller, he could just easily slip out of it.

Nelson attempts his Madness talent, to transform into a young, skinny teenage boy.

Protagonist wins, Madness dominates
Nelson must check off a Response and act accordingly


Nelson wishes for a moment that his arm was not quite so large, that his hand was just that little bit slimmer - and then he feels the crackling begin.

It's a soft sensation, the feeling of his bones collapsing in on themselves. The feeling of his skin shrinking, of the tendons realigning themselves, is likewise understated. But it's there. He can feel every movement in his body, every change, no matter how minute, as his skeleton collapses in on itself, reverting to a younger stage.

All in all, it only lasts about a second. And then he's there, in the clothes he wears as a grown man, with the body of a ten-year old. The Watch Man has turned towards him again, however, and is raising its club - and then, from behind him, he can here more footsteps from approaching from within the alley...

Meanwhile, the figure peering in at Antoinette and Lewis lets out a short, shrill peal of laughter. "I thought it was you," it says. It's the same woman's voice that Antoinette heard in Adam's Rib. "I could smell it."

So is that the fight or flight thing? The response?

Indeed. If you choose to check off a Flight response, you have to run (or otherwise be suitably terrified, whether that means screaming and freezing or just going into the fetal position). If you check off a Fight... well, that one's obvious, though in other circumstances it might just indicate being angry.

I will take flight.


Nelson decides that as a ten year old he doesn't have much of a chance fighting against anyone. He decides to run off into the city and try to lose the Watch Man.

Lewis looks to see what Antoinette is seeing. "Who is it? A friend?" He asks quietly as he looks around for something to hide behind in case the answer is no.

John takes a moment while catching his breath to look around for any signs of a door out of the city and checks his watch to see how much longer before 13 o clock.

Nineteen minutes, twelve seconds precisely until the Thirteenth Hour strikes - and then the Mad City belongs to Officer Tock. The rest may not be familiar with the inner workings of the City, but John knows more than enough to be absolutely terrified at the prospect of being trapped in the twisting streets of the Mad City when the Watch Men are out for his blood.

Before the prospect has a chance to sink in through the fog of adrenaline, though, Nelson and Gideon come staggering out of the crowds to stand beside him. None of them look particularly composed - but then, they are fellow Awakened, and when the Nightmares are on your tail, any allies are better than none.

Meanwhile, in the alleyway, the shape silhouetted against the light steps forward. It's obviously a woman; the severe gray bun hairdo, with two thin, somehow sharp-looking hairpins holding it in place, makes that apparent even through the shapeless, lumpy dress.

But no. It's not quite a woman. Something in the bearing states that this is not just a woman, but a Lady, someone to be respected and obeyed. A ribbon of light falls across her face for a moment, and Lewis and Antoinette catch a flash of sharp, gimlet eyes flashing as they trace up and down Annie's form. Despite the heavy lines and crow's feet, this woman is obviously quite sharp.

"Why, exactly what I said, my girl," says the quick, severe voice. "I can smell that anger practically boiling off of you. Quite impressive. You're a natural."
