I was waiting to get pretty much all the players' reactions to my decision before implementing it.

And if you're referring to the other part...how many games are we both in with someone named Carl who would be talking with Selina?

Clearly running multiple missions at the same time is a terrible idea.  The epic battle to see which team can cock it up worse has escalated again.

And Larry kinda gets blueballed in all this; just left with a raging bone spear and no where to put it.

I've been becoming rapidly disinterested in this game since I joined.

I'm sorry to hear that. Still, it will make Naga's goal a bit less...painful.

I'm not a player (yet, anyway), but I'm all for wrapping this up quickly. Nobody has fun when the game drags this slowly.

Which, the goals?

Yeah. Naga has a goal.

The battle continues. Naga frees itself of the Phalanx team, and makes its way for the PRT HQ, surrounding itself with a massive pile of water. More capes fall, the Evac and Hippocrates teams have their hands full, and the PRT HQ is almost empty when the first blast of water hits it, tinted green and red with the blood of man and monster. Soon, the PRT HQ is full of water and cracks, though nearly empty of people. Having done so, confident in its success, it turns eastwards to continue destruction.

Before it can do so, however, a silver light is seen on the horizon. Zion has arrived! With the most powerful hero on the planet on the scene, Naga is swiftly driven into the water once more, retreating, being attacked by Zion and others until it reaches the ocean and sinks out of their reach.

Naga is gone! Rejoicing is had by all, save those who focus on the devastation, or mourn the casualties, or who are Delphinium. For the emotion-sensor sees something disturbing when Zion arrives. Zion's emotional makeup is...familiar. She knows she has seen it before; it takes her but a minute to realize where. It was like what she saw in Argonaut, Bullhit, and Selina, but without the other mind. Zion's mind was completely full of the patterns seen at the edges of the others' minds.
After this realization, Delphinium can't help but see it elsewhere. Maybe fifteen percent of the capes present out here had the same patterns, hidden to various extents. What's going on?
Spoiler: Capes (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Casualties (click to show/hide)
There would be more casualties, but not many capes came in.
Damage will be reported in the main thread. Everyone who started here, please report to over there.

For an Endbringer attack, that casualty list is really low. Not complaining, mind you, but seems a bit... I dunno, underwhelming? Oh well, if you were getting sick of the format, better to cut your losses and move on.

Starting an endbringer attack almost nigh immediately was a pretty poor move, coherency wise.

It would have been a lot longer if the game had gone on properly. Yeah, it's low. My excuse: Only...there were 90 capes?!? Yeah, I'm modifying that list. I didn't think half of that were there.

EDIT: Every (non-PC) cape who rolled a 3 or less to survive is dead. That's another 14 deaths, and I'm not sure if there's a Protectorate in Toronto anymore.
EDIT: All finished, including the three deceased members of the Deadly Four. That brings the casualties up to 34, or over a third of all capes defending.

It's hard to judge these things at the time, I'm glad we got somewhere, and I now have a character : D

Edit: Jesus Christ how many capes?!

I was surprised, too. But most of them are just a name, a power, a little personality trait, and a team.
