Super-Frisbee

Postby Towkarn » Tue Nov 08, 2011 12:48 am

OOC: A school with super-powered kids is going to have some interesting variations on the usual kinds of games that kids play. This is going to start as a social RP and work its way into a mini-adventure. Feel free to jump in for games and leave off when the adventure starts (and it'll be pretty obvious when it does), or vice versa.

IC:

The rules were simple: No destroying the frisbee - which was pretty damn hard considerring one of the uber-geeks had designed the alloys it was made of personally as a way of distracting the jocks with a new toy - and keep it inside school grounds. The latter was the one the jocks usually had trouble with, since a lot of them had super strength of some level and not all of them had enough super speed to catch up to the frisbee before it went flying out of bounds.

"Johnny, here!" Giovanni called out, catching the chunky metal frisbee as it was thrown to him.

"Vanni, throw it to me!" Squealed a delighted flying cheerleader-type. She waved to Giovanni and bounced on her heels, making sure she had his attention as she took to the air.

The hot-blooded Demi-God was definitely paying attention and lobbed the frisbee directly up, grinning as he got a good look up her skirts before she looked down and noticed where he was looking. Immediately red-faced, she put her hands on her skirt to try and block the view, dropping the frisbee.

"Vanni, you perve!" She shouted down at him as someone leapt over Giovanni, catching the frisbee and tossing it to another player.

He laughed and once again took up the chase of the frisbee. Tackling someone much larger than himself to get it, Giovanni quickly untangled himself from the confused giant of a teenager and tossed it to the next player with a triumphant whoop.

Sitting on the sidelines in an area surronded by a line of white chalk, Travis is firmly in the no throw zone. This area is dedicated to those who wish to interfeer without having highspeed metal objects hurled at them.

Sitting in his deck chair he slams a note down on the table next to his drink and turns to his companion.
“Five says I can make Giovanni miss a catch.”

A border collie then jumped out of nowhere and caught frisbee

Faye was going back and forth between the safe line and the rest of the game. She loved frisbee for sure, but some of the guys playing were just a little too into the game for her.

She crouched down on Travis' other side and laughed. "I have no doubt that you can do that."

Chris sat down next to Travis, idly flicking through a book and hmm-ing a his idea. It wasn't until Faye responded that she was dragged out of her note-taking. "Snowballs could but I doubt he would. Oh and T, your book on Norse Ice Magic was overdue so I renewed it for you. The price is a tub of cookie dough B and J's."

Thomas watched the game for the moment, before joining the fray with a manic laugh that came from no-where. He moved towards Giovanni and whispered "A bottle of wine says you cannot beat the others into the ground mon ami." before smiling and strutting over to the others. He might be a psychic but he wasn't psychotic enough to think he could outrank the more muscular based students. Not unless he used his powers and Lightspot had given him a brief talk as to why he shouldn't if he wanted to avoid mentoring some of the freshmen. The thought made him shudder.

Mike sat under one of the sycamores that bordered the playing field and was idly sketching what he saw. In it, Season was jumping to intercept the frisbee while another person dove to catch it. It wasn't great but he was lacking inspiration at the time.

"Giovanni is easy..." Cam snorted as he jogged towards the action. "One empathic push...shall I show you?" he grinned

Troy hurried after him. "Hey! Empathy doesn't count!"

Troy was wearing snowboarding goggles, baggy tracksuit pants and a hoodie as he ran after Cam. "Seriously leave the poor guy alone!"

"Oh I thought you meant Giovanni, my bad" Cam snorted as he leapt into a series of flips and vaulted over the Collie, snagging the frisbee and tugging to pull it free as he arched his back to land on his feet.

The border collie gave a playful growl and wagged his tail as he ran towards whoever had the frisbee now.

Cam grabbed the frisbee and pitched it as hard as he could across the field at Troy who caught it with impressive ease and started to move to avoid people coming at him

Troy slips on a suddenly appearing patch of ice but manages to keep his balance. He goes to take a step and finds that the ice is now growing up his legs.
The students spy a snared target and start rushing towards him.
Travis takes a long slurp of his lemonade.

"You kidding? If I put these guys down for the count, the game's no fun! Gotta have someone gettin' in the way!" He laughed to Thomas, looking as though he just might go along with Thomas' suggestion anyway.

Charging at the trapped Troy, Giovanni jumped over the border collie, went to sweep Cam's feet out from under him with a quick flick of his foot and sprinted ahead to come to a sudden stop in front of Troy.

"Well hey there, gorgeous. Fancy seein' you here," he gave Troy the full 200-watt grin and leaned in, plucking the frisbee out of Troy's hands while he got all flustered.

Not even looking at who he was throwing it to, Giovanni tossed the frisbee off to his right, keeping his eyes firmly on Troy.

The border collie caught it using impressive smarts and acrobatics that were a credit to his breed and then tossed it right at Giovanni's perfect precious face. He apparently could understand exactly what the humans were saying and was not liking Giovanni's behavior

The frisbee, being designed to do so, made a very distinct whirring noise to alert students if it was coming in there direction. Giovanni just raised a hand and blocked the frisbee with his forearm. Crouching and picking it up, he put a hand on Troy's stomach as he was standing and pushed the shorter boy over.

"You might wanna stay down, since I'm apparently the new target." He laughed again, tossing the frisbee into the air and catching it as it fell.

"Now, who did that...?" He glared around, seeing a number of people snickering behind hands or grinning sheepishly. One girl was pointing at the dog, just to make sure the frisbee wasn't going to be aimed at her when Giovanni threw it at full strength.

Pulling his arm back and turning a circle like he was throwing a discus, Giovanni launched the frisbee so it would zoom just over the dog's head. He was only intending to scare the crap out of whichever shapeshifter it was, but the velocity of the frisbee could likely injure someone now.

What Giovanni wasn't banking on was that this shapeshifter was in the form of the smartest breed of dog in the world it calmly ducked then chased after the frisbee and caught it sending it gently and good naturedly towards the girl in a friendly way

Travis does have a reason to be here rather than simple amusement. This gives him an opportunity to test himself, stretch his abilities and powers a little further than usual.

He wouldn’t try this in a fight, he sticks to things he can do well.

A circle of blue light crackles and appears in front of the Frisbee. It passes through and disappears. A second circle open over Giovanni’s head and the disc comes whizzing back out, steaming as the now freezing metal touches the warm air. He can feel the cold on his scalp as it just grazes his hair before flying towards the group of students.
