An odd feeling creeps over Phantom as he stood there. Slowly, he looks up to see that a ceiling plate above him had slid open without him knowing it and an automated camera was filming him as he stood there.

 

Fortunately, the Silver Phantom is wearing a mirrored faceplate, so no one could see the very unheroic litany of curse words he mouthed at seeing the camera. With a shrug, the Phantom stares directly into the camera lens and waves. Turning insubstantial, the Phantom addresses the remote camera operator:

 

"I don't suppose you'd believe me if I told you I got lost looking for the lavatory?"

 

Pausing for effect and response.

 

"Okay, I didn't think so. Nice place you have here. I don't seem to recall these architechtural feature being very popular amongst cathedrals." As he is talking, the Phantom slowly drifts backwards away from the marked bulkhead in the direction he originally came. "I would certainly love to view your plans. I'm considering building a place of my own and I just love the sleek modern look you have incorporated. Very industrial."

 

Pausing for effect and response.

 

"Not much of a talker are you? Well, if you don't mind, I will just leave the way I came and be out of your hair."

 

The Silver Phantom waves and shrugs as he turns to leave.

Quyksilver-

 

Turning, the Phantom suddenly bumbs into someone... well, something.

 

Stepping a few steps back, our phasing superhero looks up as a large automated defense robot lumbers into place, stomping with each step, until it fully blocked the corridor from which Phantom came. Its arms stood far apart upon bulky steel shoulders. Coolant cables, gears, and high-tech junks could be seen portruding at the joints. Its chest plate was bumped up with what seems to be extral layer of front armor, plain grey steel with a large red cross painted on its front. A red three digit serial number can barely be noticed on its right shoulder. There came a whirring sound as its head turned back and forth and finally its large, bulbous, cyclop-like red eye scans and focuses on the Phantom.

 

A deep, garbled voice came from a speaker on its head, announcing rather unnecessarily:

 

"DANGER. UNAUTHORIZED PERSONEL DETECTED. NEUTRALIZATION PROTOCOL INITIATED."

 

Its right hand leveled and suddenly cranked open to reveal a three-barreled, machine-gun-looking thingy. The left hand remainded by its side, but also opened to reveal a large tazer unit, electricity crackling between a charged trident.

 

Outside of the church-

 

As our other heroes round the corner, they find themselves in a small, walled cemetary at the back of the church. Four ornated and sealed crypts decorate the far edge of the wall. In between, rows of tomstones dash the open space.

 

The old man stops in the middle of the graveyard, standing in between two large headstones. Planting his cane on the ground, he stands hunched, looking down at the ground. It is unsure if he has noticed his followers.

 

Nearby, a crow croaked before taking flight from the cathedral tower as the bell rang once.

Tailing the rest of the group, I see that one goes left, anther to the right, & the ogre stays in the middle, I decide to back him by hiding behind a gravestone or some object, I pull my bow out, & knock a blunt arrow, just in case the old man isn't a threat or needs to be subdued.

"Hmmm so I guess this is what they meant by No Unauthorized Personnel Allowed," muses the Phantom to himself. "So much for welcoming poor lost heroes trying to find the bathroom."

 

Bowing slightly as he becomes insubstantial the Phantom addresses the intelligence behind the security bot. "Sorry for the trouble Mr. [insert Serial #] Operator. I think I will leave now, sorry for the intrusion."

 

With a leap to the Phantom's left, avoiding the bot's left hand holding the Tazer, he passes into the wall.

[OOC- Sorry mates, got carried away with the other game. My apologies.]

 

Quyk-

 

Sucessfully avoiding the security bot, the Silver Phantom dodges sideways gracefully and passes like a mist through the metal wall...

 

Only to run into a strong electric field that had suddenly erected outside the corridor. Jolting him, the shock sends a spark through his body, forcing him to phase back into the corridor. The Phantom looks up and only narrowly dodges aside as the robot raises its right arm. The tri-barreled chaingun spun with a whir and began thumping a rhythm of whizzing bullets at our ghostly hero.

 

With several close calls, the Phantom manages to dodge or phase through most of the bullets but, as he lands back on his feet, he looks up to see the robot crouching down, its tazer-arm raised, ready to charge.

 

 

Outside in the cemetary-

 

It was as if the old guy did not even notice our heroes surrounding him. Eddie stops in front of him and says:

"Hey! Old guy! What's the d-"

The large hulking hero's words were cut short as the man suddenly leap into the air much too high for one of his age. Kicking at a gravestone, he shatters and sends a fragment of it spinning towards Eddie, shattering it over the hero's chest and stopping the man short from closing on him.

Cyphershot fires an arrow, which the "old" man dodges while, in mid-motion, kicking himself up on top of aanother gravestone, balancing between the two arms of the cross-shaped stone.

Looking down with his face still shaded by his fedora, the mysterious man remains there, silent, as if allowing his opponents to strike first.

The Phantom clenches his fist in preparation to unleash a massive Spirit Blast point blank into the shoulder of the robot sentry, but pauses and grins behind his mask.

 

"I wouldn't be a very nice guest, even if I was uninvited, though I think I am, if I broke all my host's toys now would I?"

The Phantom paused waiting to see the Robot's response.

 

"Catbot snatched your vocal modulators again didn't it?" The Phantom chuckled.

 

Reaching a small canister of his Ectoplasm on his belt, he flips it towards the left hand holding the Tazer and right as the can is about to bounce harmlessly off the robot, he sends a small Spirit Blast into the canister, causing it to rupture. The ruptured can sprays it's gooey contents all over the left arm and torso of the robot, thoroughly covering the tazer and begins to instantly harden, gumming up the works.

 

"Perhaps, with the dangerous toys put away, we might be able to have a meaningful coversation, me and your boss."

Quyk-

 

With a metallic whirring that, if it had not come from a machine, could have sounded like an monstrous roar, the security boat recoils, shaking its tazer as the electrodes short-circuited under the sticky substance.

 

"[Damage Report]: Secondary weapon neutralized." a mechanical voice drones. "Intruder status updated: [Hostile]. [search and Destroy] protocol initiated."

 

Stomping as it approaches, the security bot levels its chain-gun and unleashes a salvo at the phantom, its tri-barrels thudding in rhythmic blasts, bullets ricochetting off the metal walls and sparking as they smash into the smooth chrome surfaces.

 

Phasing a bit too late, a bullet grazes Phantom's shoulder and a second narrowly misses its head as the robot stomps even closer and, once again raising its right arm for a second burst.

 

[ooc- How many Ectoplasm canisters ya got left?]

"Oh great, looks like I made sparky mad," the Phantom thinks.

 

Remaining phased, the Phantom drops his arms to his side and drifts a distance back in a non-threatening posture.

 

"Listen tin can, I only became hostile because you tried to ventilate me with your gatling gun a few seconds back. I'm more than willing to be escorted to your operator but only if you stand down. I can further disable you if you force me, but I am a guest, and it's bloody rude to break the host's toys. Besides, I was invited to this damned place, so don't you keep sparking off on that Intruder stuff."

 

[OOC] Each canister is good for multiple applications, so he typically carries 2, up to four maximum. We'll say for the sake of tracking, he tossed a full canister. Has another 5/8 full - each application is sufficient to bind up a person's hands/feet/gag. Not expecting to go on a major prowl or mob control, that's all it would make sense for him to bring. Canisters are fairly small, think along the size of Spidey's web shooters cartridges. What good is being a scientist if you can't make really cool, useful stuff, and then make it smaller.[/OOC]

Although the piece of gravestone is not enough to stop him physically, the big man does stop his advance, knowing from experience that angry natives do not take well to insurgents. Taking a cue from Pulse, Eddie shrugs off the blow and does not attack the crazy flying old man.

 

"Listen, Gramps," he says instead. "Someone or something told us to come here and ask for the Zealot's Confession. If ya know what that is, please let us in on it. Otherwise, if ya keep being a complete jackass, I'm gonna hafta take you apart." To accentuate his point, he allows a bit more energy to flow into his fists, causing them to glow like bright streetlamps.
