Revenger Homework Assignments

Thank you Revengers for getting back to me in a timely fashion. It seems the city has many problems that are just crying out to be dealt with. And as I said before, it’s hard to know where to start. But it seems our members and their sources have provided several possible suggestions, three to be exact. Ordinarily, I might be inclined to ask that we decide together which one merits the most immediate response.

However, since they are all worthy, and no single one would require the full weight of our numbers, we can afford to divide our resources this time and take them down simultaneously. And as it happens, the timetable on these missions appears to provide a little flexibility, since some need to be dealt with sooner than others.

Behold our first three missions, numbered based on their immediacy, but not order of importance. Within each, you will find a mission profile and assignments, which will be given out based on abilities but largely open to volunteers. Those who have brought the assignment to our attention will usually get first crack, but priority must be given to who can be most affective in any given situation. And if you’re not picked the first time around, don’t worry. We are all on the roster and shall be given the chance to show the world of crime and corruption what we got!

Mission 1: Corruption at City Hall
Source: Atrum Auditor

Profile: It seems that a certain city councilman named Jeff Harlan has a reputation for corruption. However, after multiple investigations, nothing has ever stuck to him. Witnesses and evidence against him have a way of disappearing, and it’s widely believed their is a mob connection in that respect.

But we may have finally found a break. Tonight, a meeting with syndicate crime boss Joe “The Stare” Keithly is scheduled to go down at the docks, with the intent of discussing a new building project on the East Side. Atrum believes that Keithly is looking for more real estate to expand his methamphetine operations, since most of the hard drugs in the city come from the outside. If he can build his own network of labs, he will be in a position to control meth production and distribution, making him all the more powerful and the people of the city helpless in his hands!

Aims: The meeting needs to go down, and evidence collected on the Councilman. That evidence needs to finds its way into the hands of someone honest at the DA’s office. Then, we need to take down Joe Keithly and make sure he understands that his policy of intimidation and disappearances is at an end. I was thinking something dramatic, like his own methods which often involve feeding people to the fish. Let him dangle above a shark tank up to and until the point where Councilman Harlan is safely behind bars, and maybe, just maybe we’ll let him walk out on his own two feet. But of course, be creative, just know that no one dies…

Assignments: Atrum, since this is your show, you will be responsible for watching over the meeting and making sure we got audio/video on the whole thing. We’ll need at least two people to join him and make sure the take down goes smoothly. Keithly doesn’t travel alone and can be expected to have two or three armed men with him. Remember, we only need to scare the bejeezus out of him and make sure he’s sidelined until the Councilman is arrested. Volunteers?

Mission 2: Pimping Aint Easy…
Source: Panacea

Profile: It seems this mission presents the opportunity to not only avenge some deaths, but prevent many more. Panacea recently discovered two young girls left in an alley to die, strung out on drugs, and willing to provide some rather interesting information. It seems that Gus Darby, a respectable businessmen, just opened a new high-class restaurant on the waterfront. It’s the kind of place there the rich go to network in person. Deals are made over some of the best food and drink in town.

However, it is also rumored that Gus himself is doing some business in here, with notorious pimp Billy Bob! And it would seem that the two of them have a good racket going, using prostitutes to gain leverage over the powerful and influential. Unfortunately, Billy Bob’s competition seems to think that he’s got an unfair edge and needs to be taken down. A turf war could be in the winds…

Aims: Scum and villainy do not do our jobs for us! That’s why it’s up to us to take down Billy Bob and his crooked pimping empire. I suggest we find him in his den and enter full force, taking out his body guards and hired muscle in the process. Once we’re done that, we’ll make sure he understands that his days of doing business with Darby are over, but not before he hands over all the information he has on the city’s powerful elite. You never know, might come in handy…

Assignements: Panacea, I think you’ll definitely want to run point on this one, as we’re likely to find several girls in need of help once we bust up Bob’s operation. Call me crazy, but I also imagine you’re itching for a shot at him and his henchmen. I will back you up with Inferno, who’s skill will come in handy so we can set his place ablaze when we’re done clearing it. Perhaps we’ll stop by Gus’s restaurant and put a little show for him too after.  Two more volunteers for some added muscle and showmanship ought to do it. Any takers? Take down a vicious pimp people…?

Mission 3: Attorney’s Office For Sale?
Source: Judgement

Profile: It seems we have a wealthy business tycoon who’s been getting cozy with a certain woman in the DA’s office. Were not entirely sure what the nature of this relationship is, but odds are good they aren’t exactly dating!  Then again, perhaps they are, and this is said businessman’s way of finding out what’s going on within. Either way, it almost surely points towards manipulation, coercion, bribery, and/or blackmail.

Aims: This city and its justice system are not for sale! I want surveillance and some answers, so feel free to find this young woman and lean on her a little. We need to know what this corporate bigwig has been asking of her so we can know what to do with him. If there’s a relationship between his office and the DA’s, we need to sever it immediately.

Assignments: Judgement, I can think of no one better to head this one up. And since Veiled Tsunami shares your passion for justice and anti-corruption, I would like her to accompany you. Let these people know that we’re watching, and we won’t tolerate conspiracies of silence or

Alright! We’ve got our assignments, now let’s get it done. And remember people, be careful out there 😉

    1. Mission two, if you’re willing. We could use some scary fighting skills to intimidate the riff raff! And since we’re dealing with pimps and man-scum, it’d be fitting that their asses get kicked by women!

      1. Excellent – I shall open a can of whoop-ass on those dastardly fiends! Mission Two it is, Captain! Will there be a directive coming from Beta (since it’s two) Team Leader coming? Or do we simply wreak havoc on our own?

      2. We shall enter as a unit, and once inside, pick your target and trounce them! But we leave the pimp for last. And no killing, we want them beaten and subdued, and the pimp daddy to hand over all blackmail info to us.

  1. From Panacea: Sorry, last night I was doing recognizance.
    It seems that Billy Bob has dinner, or maybe it’s breakfast, every afternoon at 4:30 at Gus’ restaurant. Gus was nowhere to be seen.
    Billy Bob watches the sunset then goes out the back door into the alley to a black Mercedes.
    Very soon afterwards, Gus comes out. They get into the backseat together and their chauffer drives away.
    I followed by flying discreetly behind them. They cruse through the docks, merge into afternoon rush hour. Then they get on to the interstate and disappear into the tunnel.
    Because of the volume of traffic, I though it best to fly over and catch up with them on the other side, but they never came out.
    I looked for them on the interstate and surrounding streets, just in case they made it through before I flew over. I didn’t find them.
    I sat on a perch where I could watch both ends of the tunnel, but they never came out. I waited until 2 am, for when traffic was at its slowest, and searched the tunnel. Nothing.
    I also search the docks just in case there was something going on there, but I couldn’t find anything.
    Billy Bob is back at the same table eating dinner and watching the sunset.
    If you are available, come. They are up to something, but what and where?
    Follow the Mercedes. Help me find out what they are up to.
    If the opportunity is right, take them down.
    If not let Captain Smackdown know what you find so we can plan our next move.

    1. There’s a hidden tunnel inside the tunnel! We’ll have to take his car down while in transit, and liberate his brothels after. The three of us are more than enough to take down his vehicle and subdue him and his escort.

      Angel… I want you to block their path on the road. One sight of a dark angel ought to be enough to force them to steer off the road. Then Panacea and us will swoop in and take out his bodyguards as they come out of the car.

      Then… we take down Billy Bob himself! Let’s pump him for information, addresses, where he keeps his stacks of blackmail info, and of course, anything he can give us on Gus! I need to find Inferno. We’ll need his (ahem) special abilities somewhere in this!

  2. After hearing about the meeting between Councilman Jeff Harlan and Syndicate Boss Joe “The Stare” Keithly, Atrum Auditor put together his team to expose the truth. After first recruiting Erotica Girl a kick-ass heroine with enhanced strength and the ability to go invisible. Next Justyka was recruited for this sensitive mission. Justyka also able to go invisible, is a fellow telepath and can fly.

    This team is optimized for covert, undetectable operations. The team meets at the docks as the sun sets, to survey the area and set up camera and bugs before the illicit meeting starts. Erotica Girl goes invisible to keep watch as Atrum Auditor teleports from shadow to shadow, planting listening devices and video cameras. Meanwhile Justyka plants cameras with night vision and infrared up high on burnt-out lamp posts a building corner and a crane.

    “Ok, this is eyes and ears only. We stay for the meet, record everything and then waylay Keithly until the police can pick up Councilman Harlan.” Atrum reminded the group.

    “I still don’t understand why we don’t just take out Keithly and his scumbags out now” Erotica Girl complained.

    “It’s not our place to act as judge and jury” Justyka replied.

    “A win for the police will look good for all of us” added Atrum. “Just think of it as community block watch or whatever. We set ’em up, the police knock ’em down, we all look good”.

    “Fine. Whatever.” Erotica Girl rolled her eyes. “What time did your guy say this meet was happening?” Erotica Girl asked, changing the subject.

    “Twenty-three hundred hours sharp. Keithly can’t abide people who aren’t punctual.” Atrum supplied.

    “Great. Just three more hours to kill. What’s the plan to distract Keithly until Harlan get’s arrested?” asked Justyka.

    “Well, I -uh… I was thinking Keithly owns this warehouse by the dock here, we could start a small fire and that should cause a distraction. Keithly will probably send his goons to save anything important, leaving him free to have an intimate talk with us. But I’m open to suggestions.” Atrum said, revealing the try limit of his ability to organize.

    “I say we knock the mob meat-heads out and take Keithly on a cruise out in the bay. Maybe with a free pair of cement shoes.” Erotica said with a wicked grin.

    “Why don’t we call that plan B?” Justyka mediated.

    After testing the video recorders night vision and infrared feeds and the audio recording levels, the heroes settled in for their stake-out. Erotica Girl posted herself at a neighboring warehouse, invisible, so that she could be close at hand in case any surprises popped up. Atrum found a spot underneath the dock amidst some ropes and old lumber where he could watch the feeds on his hand-held, but still be within easy teleport range. Justyka flew up to the crow’s nest of a near-by boat so she could see any traffic by land or sea for miles.

    I see a black town car approaching the docks from the East. Justyka broadcasted over the trio’s telepathic link.

    Copy that. I have lights. Erotica Girl confirmed mentally.

    Stay sharp, and give me descriptions of any unknown parties. Atrum Auditor responded.

    Another vehicle approaching. A yellow taxi looks like. Justyka reported.

    Yeah, what’s the Councilman thinking? Bringing a civilian? asked Erotica.

    They are exiting the car now. I have 5 thermal signatures on camera. Atrum broadcasted visually.

    Looks like Keithly brought a couple of heavies. I recognize them from files that have come across my desk. Ex-military enhancement project: codenames Hammer and Spike. Enhanced strength, with Psychokinetic powers and Black Ops trained. Atrum added, as the information flashed on his hand-held.

    I feel… A mind above us… Searching. Crap! Erotica! What’s your position? Justyka asked, panicked.

    Uh..guys? We might want to call the Captain for back-up. Erotica Girl suggested.

    Indeed. Came an amused unfamiliar thought-voice.

    1. Help is on the way! When I give the word, start jamming those goons’ minds! We’ll show up, distract them with our sudden presence and pyrotechnics. As soon as those goons are down, we can grab Bob when he tries to make a break for it. Lord knows he won’t stick around when the shit really hits the fan!
