WHO: Everyone involved in the rescue and fight operations in Alastair's Hells. WHERE: Various locations in LA. WHEN: Tuesday, March 7, 2006; nearing one a.m. WHAT: Saving people and fighting things. RATING: PG-13 for content, most likely STATUS: thread; in-progress NOTES: Under the cut!
[ooc: There is no narration here, I know. That's because there are three settings! Feel free to do whatever set up you would like with the following information. XD
Setting information: Group one is hitting a larger building in an industrial district, the original (first made) Hell location in LA. The protections around it are solid and will ultimately (perhaps after a failed first attempt, or whatever that group would like to write out) require the combined magic of the main two magic users plus support assistance from the fighter assigned who also has magic in order to get the protections down in one go. Humans are technically the largest group of minions here because they're responsible for organizing the 'labor' force as each kidnapped torture victim gets turned into a torturer. This is followed by various kinds of demons, then vampires. Group two is hitting a subterranean complex near the ocean side of the city. The protections around it are sunk into the ground and there is the same level of magic resistance as building one. Given the combined power of the main two magic users assigned there, the support of the third will likely not be necessary initially, but all three will be needed to tear down several other barriers within the subterranean levels to get through all the sections. Vampires are the largest group of minions because of the protection from the sun, but there will be various kinds of demons and a few humans. Group three is hitting a formerly abandoned theatre in a run down section of the city. The protections around it are similar to the other places, but have been fortified because God is there. The magic users in that group will have to repeat the process they are using two to three times (up to you) before the protections around it 'crack', as there are only two of them in that group and this building is a tougher place to infiltrate. The minion mixture will be about equally vampires, demons and humans, and additionally there will be several 'mystic' types that will be around the room God is being held in. At the time of attack, Alastair will be in the upstairs of the building and God in a room on the ground floor.
You can use NPCs at will and just go wild as far as creating mini threads for each of the three buildings concerning breaking down the shields, wards and other magics being used, fighting the demons, vamps and humans working for Alastair (they'll be recognizable, as they won't be in the torture rooms – think more 'office' worker type people who will fight back), and rescuing the people strapped to tables and hung up on the Racks (steel hooks on cables suspended from corners of rooms) or safely restraining the ones who've been tortured into torturing others (think Incarcerous and methods like that, so those people can be transported to hospitals with psych wings).
Just make sure to label in the subject for groups 1, 2 or 3 so anyone wanting to jump in knows which location it's at (and with any other applicable headers, like "group one – magic users", "group three – rescue & fighting" or something to that effect).
For those involved in group 3b, I'm waiting until some other threads get started before putting up the face-off with Alastair. The God rescue people may want to do the same (which will be part of 3a splitting off). All group three people, feel free to work on the other parts now, like the magics and the fighting/rescuing.]
