Miranda nods "I could try to do that if we're trying to make sure we get the drop on him."
"They say that all the world is a stage. But obviously the play is unrehearsed and everyone is adlibbing their lines! Maybe that's why it's so hard to figure out if we're in a tragedy or a farce. We need more special effects and dance numbers." -- Calvin & Hobbes

All the while, various images of Iron Golem were flashing on a screen. “Well.” TS said. “If we don’t have the capacity to do psychic stuff, why not hire out. I’m sure we can ask for help. This isn’t just a petty street thug we’re dealing with. There should be some other Cavelier or a Centurion, or a Sector 10 who can help with an official police raid.”
His eyes moved back to the slides.
“With the Iron Golem out of the way, these two become out next concern.” A pair of men appeared, showing cybernetic augmentation. “They’re Freak Maker’s second layer of lackies. A pair of thugs who are loyal to the good doctor. Between Power Armour, Windchill, Tharsis, and Sock-Puppet Man, they should be easy to dispatch.”
The slides switched to some police photos of what looked like a bank of cells around a lab. “Next comes the hostages. According to what the police know, they have a habit of kidnapping street people and torturing them with genetic experiments. The former labs in Chicago showed a number of dead, or dieing souls, altered beyond any kind of humane scale. Odds are, to make good his escape, Freak Maker will let them loose to keep us busy.”
The slides end. “Which brings us to Arcadian. As our resident master of the slight of hand, we need you to find Freak Maker’s escape route before he gets to it. You’re the quarterback, getting the ball through our offense, their defense, and touch down at Freak Maker’s goal line before the clock runs out. Or, without the analogy, you have to gas Freak Maker’s tunnel before Freak Maker gets into it. That makes your job the most dangerous of all.” TS looked at Arcadian, to see if he was up for it.
