Social or Plot:


-----==[ Penthouse Level - X-Factor Tower/Ship ]==----------------------------

The Penthouse level is three floors (45 feet high) subdivided into three distinct areas; the pool area, the gathering hall, and the lounge.

The floor itself is wide open and allowing flow between those areas without walls or major obstructions. Additionally, all four sides, including the roof, is made of polarizing transparent metal. This allows for sunlight to stream in from all directions, visualization into, out of, or one way, and of course total polarization preventing light completely.

The Pool Area - The swimming pool is a marvel of alien technology. It occupies all 45 feet including has roof access. As a standard pool, it is sunken into the main floor of the penthouse, but then has static and flowing water areas which allow for movement from the lower pool to the rooftop pool via swimming or back down via waterfall/slide. This is made possible by gravitational adjustments by Ship allowing the water to stand vertically, diagonally and horizontally. This means that if someone were to wish to swim from the penthouse floor to the rooftop, it would be possible. The pool area also offers a 'outdoor kitchen' area where one can prepare full meals.

The Gathering Hall - This area is malleable to serve whatever purpose deemed necessary. Presently it presents as a dance floor with stage. However, it can take the shape of a great dining hall, a basketball court, volleyball court, tennis court, and so on.

The Lounge Area - This area is devoted to the relaxation part of the top floor. Where those can sit back, relax and watch a very large projection screen. The area is near to the pool. Walls can be constructed to block out light, noise, distractions and so on.


Standing in front of the Ping-Pong table, holding a paddle and ball, Alex (dressed in his black/gold uniform) is ready to serve. Across the table from him is Jace, a holographic security officer of the Tower. The ball is served, Jace returns it and after three more volleys Jace wins. Ship makes the crows goes wild sounds and Alex looks up with a feigned annoyed look. He then crosses to find the ball which rests beneath a nearby table.

As this area really is the most comfortable from a human/mutant perspective, its not long until Kurt finds himself here and then is attracted by teh sounds of crowds going wild. He stumbles towards the ping-pong table to find Alex and Jace at a game of ping-pong. "I'd ask if its fun winning against a program, but ...." clearly the look on Alex's face says it all.

The elevator slides open and Dani walks out. She has escaped the confines of the medbay, though probably against doctor's orders. She moves across the room with a slight limp and a brace around a wrist, but other than that she doesn't look to injured. Ship seems to have a pretty good recovery program, it even grew her hair back to its usual length. She lifts a hand in greeting to the other two as she walks past toward the couch "Hey you two.

Alex fetches the ping pong ball and Jace will know the game is over, both will chin-up one another (as a sign of 'later') and Alex greet Dani with a 'hey' and then will state, "Not everyone can be as dexterious as you, Kurt." while walking to the seating area where Dani is positioned.

With a grin and nod to Dani, Kurt offers back to Alex, "Nein, fruend ... I imagnie if Ship really wanted to, I would lose just the same. I avoid the game to preserve my dignity." A chuckle, as he watches Alex walk over to near Dani, and he ponders, "Any better today, are you supposed to be walking around even." He is smiling just the same, "I don't think this is approved, let me call Leyu, if she's up right now ...." Jokingly.

"It's either this or go stir crazy in medical." she replies to Kurt as she drops onto the couch "Besides have you seen medical, it's all machines and metal." and hand comes up to stifle a yawn "And I am much better, thanks. I can't actually breath without pain.

Seated adjacent to Dani on a different fixture, Alex sees the segue moment and states, "Speaking of... I'm pretty sure Sybil isn't coming back. Either of you think that Leyu is going to stick around?"

"Maybe if Sybil was in the states that would be an issue." Dani starts to say as she leans against the arm of the sofa and stretches her legs out along it "I think she will stay or could be convinced to stay. I think her showing up yesterday is a good indication that she wants to stay on the team.

Alex nods and continues along the same path, "Cool. And yesterday, that didn't go very well. Any idea what went wrong?"

"We engaged one at a time, it allowed them to concentrate on us as individuals," begins Kurt, "Not to mention others were waiting in hiding, like Pietro. But I think given the circumstance, it would of been hard to wait, Box might not of made it out alive if any of us hesitated to wait for a cohesive plan."

Dani nods at Kurt's assessment "And none of us are immune to sonic attacks either. Admittedly we were warned," she pauses there as she rest of her sentance sounds to much like an excuse and going there wouldn't do any good. "That is ultimately what left Leyu and myself vulnerable to Peitro's attack.

There's a nod from Alex about Kurt's remarks and then he states, "Not to discount the sonic attack was effective against hero and villain alike, but Pietro didn't need that advantage against you and Leyu." Alex notes to Dani regarding her assessment. He follows up, "I worked with Peitro for a little over a year, and in simulation after simulation, he took us all out without any issue. The only way we could take him down was teamwork and traps. He's just too fast."

"He was an unknown at the time of engagement," says Kurt, "Even with teamwork, it was risky when he entered combat. We're all in luck Box caught him with that trap and that he didn't spot the force wall in time to stop. If he pressed the attack, we would of had to make a tactical advance to the rear, one person at a time." Saying he probaly would of had to do some inventive porting.

Opening her eyes to look at the other two, Dani keeps her mouth shut at this point and lets Kurt answer the questions about the enounter. If she says anything more it could get ugly and result in more punching. It could be the lack of sleep, the pain or a combination but obviously something in this questioning is getting her ire up.

"Anyway, yall did great and no one was killed. But... when Dani and Leyu are back up to full speed, we're going to utilize Ship's danger room to go over the battle and practice more. Now that we don't have to share time with the other teams and students, we'll get a lot better, faster." States Alex in summary.
