OK, let's get this train wreck rolling! Oh, and if you ever need more precise description of anything, or a small ASCII map, just tell me. It shouldn't be necessary for now, though.

Edit: Perfect! First post on page 2 =)

Episode one:
L.A. Meltdown


Dark shadows are moving across the sky of Los Angeles, the City of Angels, soon to be better known as Shrapnel City. But for now all goes on as usual. It's Saturday night and the Red Light District is pulsing with life, liquor stores, stripclubs, and cheap hotels doing their best to help everybody forget the working days.

You are in the Titty Kitty night club, one of the more classy establishments in the neighbourhood, which doesn't really say all that much. There are drunk people everywhere, and you proudly count yourself as one of them. Hot babes are gyrating on the dancefloor to the rhythm of the loud music played by a DJ wearing dark shades that have become so popular lately. There are also two bouncers looking over the patrons from a balcony near the bar, but you're much more interested in the chicks, so who cares.
You think you heard a distatnt rumble, but it's hard to say with the loud music. Did the ground shake, or was that just you? Noone else seems to have noticed anything, but you suddenly have a feeling something is going to happen here very soon...

"Get me another damn beer!" Ruhig said with a slurred voice.  "I'm not quite drunk enough for this place!"

Richard finishes the rest of his beer and looks around at all the fine women.  He stays seated, sweating nervously like a wuss.

((I guess I misjudged the timing of the start. That means my character's friends are still alive and human. For now. He's still the same semi-wuss anyway.))

Lucas walks up to the DJ, looks him straight in the eye, and raises his voice to try and beat the loud music: "Hey DJ! Do you have anything other than this DJ Porny crap? I'm getting sick and tired of this song! Why don't you play some actual sexy music?"

"DJ Porny? Ew. Man, this place does suck pretty bad.", Johnny thinks. "I'm sure Duke knows far better clubs than this one. Oh well... I'm only here for the booze and the chicks anyway..."
He sits back, lights another cig, and looks around at all the unnaturally busty chicks.

Wouldn't it be better to have IC separate from this thread, just in case questions arise and so we can ask them without polluting the narration and stuff and stuff and stuff?

"BOOYEAAAAA- OUCH holy shit damn man!"

Khran attempts to dance on the table, but slips on something and falls down. Still lying on the floor, he takes a sip from his glass, disregarding the fact that it's contents spilled out just a second ago.

The DJ nods to Lucas and puts the music to a slow fade and leans to his microphone, while grabbing a new record behind his back. Before he can say anything, there is a sound of explosion from somewhere upstairs, followed by another. With the music out of the way, there can be no mistaking something is happening. The DJ quickly puts on a new song but some of the patrons are no longer in the mood to dance.

I'd try to keep it all in just one thread for now. As long as we divide "gameplay" and OOC talk by formatting, it should be OK, I hope. You think things are starting to be confusing, we'll split it.

@Uitë - no problem. I'll work it into the story, that should prove interesting.

Edit: Forgot to mention - I was going to ask for permission by Uitë to roll a standard action (persuading the DJ), then I decided to roll anyway and only ask for the permission if the roll fails (it didn't, you got 3) and lastly I realized I cannot do things like this, since you would know, if I'm asking you "do you want to roll this?", that I've already rolled and it failed, so this is the last time I did that.
tl;dr - Uitë passed a standard roll to persuade the the DJ and I will ask before rolling next time.

"What the hell was that?"  Ruhig said, slurring still as he stood up from his seat, glaring about.

Johnny gets up, raises his voice and says "Don't panic, ladies! Let Johnny handle it! I have it all under control!"
He heads towards wherever the stairs are.

"Nah, probably some idiots playing with the fireworks." - Khran says, standing up. Still, he looks at the stairs, somewhat troubled. With a second of hesitation, he decides to follow Johnny.

"You buncha--" Ruhig said as he finished his beer and followed the group that was heading up the stairs.

"Holy shit! What was that?" Lucas exclaims in surprise. Instinctively he starts to look around for emergency exits in search of escape routes.

((No problem about the roll. Honestly, I wouldn't mind if you rolled everything, to keep the flow of the story going.))

Richard sighs with relief since other people volunteered to investigate.

Just posting to make clear my intention of not following the group going upstairs. :)

Here's a rough layout of the area:

Code: [Select]
   ###########
   #djxxxxxxx#
   +  xdancex#
   #  xfloorx#
####  xxxxxxx#
#            #
#>    _______#
#>    I bar I#
###+######+###

The > are stairs up, leading the the main entrance, as well as an entrance to the VIP area. There is a door (+) behind the bar, probably storage, and another door marked STAFF ONLY is near the DJ. The door between the bar and stairs leads to the toilets. There's a small balcony above them, which I didn't fit. There's people all over the place, quite a few are heading upstairs, Johnny, Khran and Ruhig among them.
Suddenly there's shouting coming from the top floor and those who were pushing to get up the stairs start to push in the opposite direction. There is a flash and a dead body of a patron is falling down the stairs, a burnt hole through its chest. At the same moment, two silvery flares appear on the dance-floor and ugly uniformed aliens pop into existence, guns blazing. A pandemonium breaks out, people screaming and running around mindlessly.
