WAR GAMES

WHO: All current student members of the current trainee X-Teams.
WHAT: An introduction to just how Dangerous a certain Room can get, plus a head-to-head, team-on-team face-off.
WHERE: The Danger Room
WHEN: After classes, Friday.
WARNING(S): Violence, possibly language.

[Two at at time, the X-Men's active trainee squads are called from where they were briefed, led into the Danger Room, and told to wait, facing each other.

From the observation deck overhead, Beast can be heard giving some last minute instructions and reminders. The simulation will end automatically if the Room's scanners detect serious injury or risk thereof, is the most important bit. It can also be ended manually if either team deems themselves unable to continue or if Hank notes any loss of control over powers or self-restraint by the participants while observing.

Then the speaker cuts off and is replaced by a bright, female voice that seems to come from within the walls themselves. It says:

"Engaging simulation in: 5...4...3...2...1..."]

[On X-Factor's side, Shindou already has his mental network up and humming for each of his teammates. The bō staff he's officially adopted (a stark black, longer than he is tall) is clasped defensively in both hands as he stands back and studies the terrain ahead of them and the other team across the way.

This is difficult. They're supposed to head for the top, right? That's obvious. But it's a gamble which would be faster, risking the elevator-thing running along the tower's side or scaling it manually. The former would be a straight ride to the top, but if those things swooping around cut them off...they'd be sitting ducks.

And, in the meantime, they had Emma Frost's personal riot squad to deal with.]


That lift over there -- cut them off if they head it. Otherwise, stay alert in case they engage. [He calls telepathically. That seemed the best tactic; this wasn't a group they wanted to hit head-on. And, to the most mobile part of their team:] Rinka, Bridget, which way up would be smoothest with your powers? It's your call.

[Too bad there isn't a door on the tower, or Rinka could just phase everyone inside. And without knowing how thick the walls are, it's risky to try phasing into it at all. She scans the surrounding area quickly, noting the gargoyles (yay more flying laser-zapping sentries) and rough terrain.]

Honestly, the ladders are the best way up. If someone disables whatever makes the lift move, you're just stuck. I could also climb the side of the tower itself; it'd be the same to me as using the ladder phased.

[Though the thought of climbing eight stories was daunting, Rinka was pretty certain she had enough stamina to do it. Because taking the lift meant having to take out every single member of the other team. And she's not sure they can do that.]

So that means Kanji could disable it, right? If I can get him to the lift's power source? For me, climbing's as easy as walking, since I can literally run up the wall.

[Nora cracks her knuckles as she walks out, and surveys the battlefield. She gives a grinning nod to Raven, and motions with her head to the top of the tower. They let a team with someone who can fly into a place where the objective is to reach the top of a tall tower?

Pff. Easy.

With that, though, she tilts her head to Eddie, speaking surprisingly quietly for Nora, and turns a bit away so the other team can't hear her or read what she's saying from her lips.]

Hey, I dunno what all you can tell, but this place is awesome. Totally post-apocalyptic, there's metal and stuff everywhere. Looks like we gotta climb this big tower, and it's... 70 or 80 feet tall? I can see a ladder from here... there's a catwalk about halfway up, and the top is glowing, so that's why I guess we gotta get up there. There's also a lift, but it looks kinda small. Man, I wish you could see the gargoyle-things that are flying around, they're awesome. They spit electricity or lasers or something. Um, It's a clear shot to the ladder, we'd probably run into the other team if we went for the lift, but it's gonna be going up that's the problem. Between the ugly awesome things and the guys on the other side, we do have our work cut out for us but...

[She looks over at her team, still speaking quietly.]

Hey, so what's the plan? Raven's our best shot to get to the top, right?

[personal profile] stillinthedark 2015-05-16 02:35 am (UTC)(link)
So what you're saying is, the place looks like a metal band's album cover.

[He doesn't smell anything out of the ordinary (as it's a simulator and they tend not to give off any odor), but he could make out the surroundings thanks to the varying winds. He knows his teammates are nearby, and he can barely make out the smells of their opponents.]

Yeah, she's a better flyer than I am. We'll have to hit them hard and take out any obstacles so Raven has a clear path to the top. I'll cover when I can.
loveswaffles: (39)

[personal profile] loveswaffles 2015-05-17 03:23 am (UTC)(link)
Keep an eye on the ladders and the lift. Stop them if they try anything, and don't lose sight of them.

[On the one hand, it was true that they had an advantage with Raven being able to just fly and make it all the way to the top. However, she didn't really expect it to the that easy. The other team, and those gargoyles weren't about to just sit by and let her do her thing.]

[Alright, enough strategizing.

It's time for someone to move...and Shindou takes the lead for X-Factor, darting away from their starting point and waving his teammates after. He moves in a careful, swift arc, cutting around so as not to draw in towards the Hellions as they head for the ladders

The idea's less to cut their opponents off from them than it is to provide cover for their own front line.]


Rinka, go whenever you're ready. Bridget next, once they make a move.
psykick: (⇒ fighting)

[personal profile] psykick 2015-05-19 04:17 am (UTC)(link)
Going.

[Rinka whips her hood over her head and sprints forward. She makes a beeline for the closest ladder, senses alert for what the Hellions might do.]

"Um... I can't climb that," and she usually thought herself good at climbing. And the ladder didn't seem like a good idea... that left the lift. Which was intimidating entirely for its own reasons.

As the beginning of the simulation was counting down, Skaar had changed from his human form to his Hulk form and now stood for a moment staring up at the tall tower and the gargoyles that circled it.

"The rest of you come up with a plan. I'm going for the top of the tower."

And just like that, without waiting for any objections, Skaar crouched before leaping towards the tower.

"Gee, what was I thinking?" Greg asked, smirking, "wondering if maybe, I don't know, the one who could FLY should be going up there."

"Okay, Krista, that leaves you and me. Think you can keep them off the ladders, I'll handle the platform?

But before all else, remember... these are people, not enemies, not monsters. People. Do no harm that can be avoided, and if someone gets hurt, whistle for me. We good?"

[This was one of the first times this month Flandre didn't feel at all awkward around Reimu; maybe it was because she just had other things to think about. Combat was...relatively simple, when boiled down. At least her role in this one was, presumably.

She kept her eyes on the other team, but inclined her head towards Reimu a little to show that she was still listening.

Re: X-FORCE v. GUARDIAN DRAGONS

[personal profile] tiamaris 2015-05-17 08:06 am (UTC)(link)
As soon as the Go was given, unless Alric told him otherwise, the Danger room would suddenly be home to a rather large dragon. He took a deep breath and ROARED, counting on the echo to deafen everyone else. Including the gargoyles.

Without waiting to see if that worked... he launched himself skyward, heading for the key. He would get it in his mouth, find where it went, and stay as close to there as he could fit, defending the key until Alric came along. Unless someone, or something, stopped him, of course....

[She keeps her voice low when addressing her teammates, so as not to be overheard.]

[To her, it seems to make perfect sense to take out the other team before embarking upon the rest of the task at hand. Also, it sounds more fun.]

[Um.]

Is that much force necessary? [She casts a look to the other team. She isn't sure she's comfortable with that suggestion.] If we can stonewall them on the way to the lift, I might be able to shield us on the way up. But... I don't know if my barrier will hold as long as necessary.

[There are a lot of gargoyles.]

[Well that was utterly terrifying. He's faced terrifying, but only in the soccer field or with someone who knew what they were doing. But he was their leader, so he gestures for them to come in for a huddle, the only motion that was familiar and natural to him]

Our team goal is to keep everyone safe. I don't want to win if it means "losing" someone.

[He looks up at the top of the tower, then to the gargoyles, the lift, and finally the two ladders. He really wishes he were better at strategy.]

I think I have a pretty good shot at it.
