It began on February 03, 2009 and ended in a Free Humans win in D4 (February 12th).
SECRETS and ROLE and SPY information is not to be shared (except BTSC), - it's for use in persuading attacks and lynches... - abilities are improved or added to the other factions for non compliance. Offending player looses secret or effect of ability.
No double actions
Any auto action (not many in here) will cancel chosen action, chosen action is tilled counted as used
Independent - with assistants (one use each except kill) W/con to kill Neo or be last standing
- Merovingian (aka the Frenchman)
- KILL(not N1) kill/delete in the form of ghosts, ghouls, demons etc
- Persephone - Distraction - out of action 1D 1N if they approach L'Ohme Francais -
- Twin #1 Virus (Kill attacker 3/4 chance )
- Twin #2 Virus ditto (Kill attacker 2/3 chance)
- the Trainman - Firewall (against spyware) N1.... 3/3 - N2.... 3/4 - N3.... 2/3

Usable Programs for the freed humans
- Ceraph - guards the Oracle (automatic),
- The Oracle - SPY, can get BTSC with Morpheus once he is found
- The watchmaker - any night not two in a row, picks role of freed human- I give details, can not make info public
Game Idea and ExpectationsEdit
Well done on the master stroke at the start IDNE/Dozer - blocked the first kill, and despite some creativeness form the agents - they never got lucky on finding the hierachy of the freed humans ... despite tons of give a way clues.
Thanks to all for playing, and especially for those that replaced MIAs - I hope clozobozo understands why I took her out of the game, she did not leave or ask to leave, it was my decision alone.
This was a bit complicated and gave my posterior a headache too :o I had to check what was not used and what is the decreased ability and those dirty cheating agents tried to use two extra plays one night - bad agents, so glad you left footprints where they can't see them without a mirror - despite some outstanding play, they were overpowered - the Architect will have to correct the balance again for another game as clearly the key goodies are iUntouchables There's a thought (in my case the Undutchables :lol: ) - Writer required - apply within.. I'm so bad a writing RT's intro and PTs N2 Post were both awesome.
I realized too late that Twin Pop had little chance of using the abilities as they would give away his role - well done for not using them Yes he did try to kill and auto save at the same time - but he was blocked rom 3 or 4 directions :P Way too much role giving - Which I know how to deal with it in future
I think the spying gives too much confidence too - especially with protection - you can stick your neck out, in your case right out. :)
There was meant to be a hieracachy approach to kills of freed humans...Morpheus, mouse was 50/50 Trinity, Neo and Frenchman - I think they had too much to do that is why they got spy and role copy, which I'll incorperate in one role next time
Smith was powerful, and will choose an agent to die for him instead next time. he had a secret of using deleted agents secrets
I like the idea of day abilities, have to make sure it does not kill the conversation.. actually there was a one of day lynch escape unused, there were he usual self saves used but wasted - I'll reduce the powers a little IDNE was blocking well
Also I should have punished more for the RIDs = kill if I get PM from other faction the day it is revealled, so CP, Mouse, IDNE would have gone quick - that's one day ability (for the baddies :lol: ).
Blocking JZ's kill on SD/Apoc made a big difference - though he paid him back by capturing him..
Just as well the Frenchamn could not expose his abilities too early - that would expose him too. If he used Persophone - he may have made it harder - he was ID'd anyway
Considering the agents nearly lynched tad t one point - would have been different
My overall thought.. if the spy on TP had worked, and the N1 kill ahd got through it would have changed it considerably. Als0 if TP could kill N1 and have other players as opposed to a single faction
I am pretty sure that this can be balanced for another one - I'll change the theme though, definitely want to do Star Gate in March or Avatar Writer needed though - would be nice to add some images too - I had no time....

Day and Night PostsEdit
|Intro Curtesey of Rainthinker|
|The Metro Train Station in New York had been abandoned for many years, until now. Neo rushed into the loading area, jumping the stairs and turnstiles as fast as humanly possible. A Smith was only one second behind him. Bounding effortlessly over the turnstiles he turned his momentum into a massive flying kick which smashed directly into the square of Neo’s back, which slammed him face-first into the opposite wall. “You thought you could escape us Mr. Anderson, didn’t you? We now know who you are, and the One will not be leaving here without our permission.” said Smith, monotonously. Stumbling away from the now-crushed wall Neo shook himself, and then casually made a rude gesture in the Smith’s direction. Angered by Neo’s apparent lack of concern, Smith sprinted at him and began throwing punches. Just managing to block Mr. Smith’s furious blows, Neo backed up against the wall. Smith smiled, knowing he had won, and threw his hardest punch directly at Neo’s solar plexus. Suddenly his target disappeared, and his clenched hand smashed into the hard brick of the wall. Howling in pain, the Smith fell back. Neo jumped down from where he had clung to the wall above the Smith, kicking him multiple times in the head. As Mr. Smith collapsed, Neo sprinted towards the now-ringing phone in the kiosk behind him. He picked it up and put it to his ear, and in less than a second he had completely disappeared.
Smith got up from where he had fallen when Neo kicked him. Staring around the train station, he called to no one in particular, “This isn’t over Mr. Anderson! Not now! Not ever!”
He then walked out of the loading area of the station, leaving it just as it was before. Empty.
|Night 1: May Tricks|
Without anyone truly being aware or knowing, the date (for what it's worth) has been reset by the Architect, all stats where recalibrated and progams 'cleaned'. The balance was restored.....
However rogue and exiled programs where doing there un-level best to run amok and cause havoc. Could Neo control the order and chaos finally, so that humans would be able to fight and have a chance to defeat the machines. Could the Agents stand in the way of their progress?
The Merovingian was feeling no nerves and totally in control of his state of Je ne sais quoi! took Persephone's hand with the snooty charm of a French aristocrat - une manifique pas de deux!
Neo had decided to hone his martial arts skills and was running a program with Morpheus. He was hoping to find Trinity somewhere in the program. Perhaps she was there somewhere. After a battle including jumping, flying and free-fall fighting, Morpeheus was gone. Mayhave been disconnected, running an elusive ability or just gone ??......
Morpheus thought he heard an altercation and plying safe, left the training with Neo to stand by Some Guy on the chance that he was going to have to rescue him. A random event 'seemed' to happen and Morpheus could not understand the occurrence but could see that Some Guy was not suffering from any viral implication in the matrix. With no need for escape help, Morpheus left and returned to help Neo practice...
Trinity instinctively always new when/if Neo was in danger, as long as she was in the matrix or standing over him while he was in it, he would be an instant away from being saved by her. As things stand, all is fine......
Mouse was soft all over, and maybe had a soft spot for Trinity. Should she be attacked he was ready to stop the bullet - wishes he had Neo's ability, but for now all he could do is stand in the way if he could - there was a small chance......
Agent Thompson was unstable after the upgrade, the Architect had allowed for a little indirect glitching. This would mean Thompson could pause a while, hopefully safe until the correctional software had found this program and made it's adjustments. No use having those humans read the green rain and decipherig the actions due to poor maintenance...
Agent Jones was too be upgraded, his code to have 'strings' added to improve efficiency. The architect had ensured the firewall would be used to keepp out any unwanted deletions or viruses, even delete commands. Improved and out of harms way....
Agent Johnson was sent by Smith to investigate and check on the use of Some Guy's sub routines in the matrix, Smith was after information as to his ability. Could SG make a difference? Would he need to be taken care of at some point? Johnson was a program that was faster than light in cyber space. Found his target, recovered information and reported back to Smith.
The most sentient program Agent Smith stealthily copied one of his own agents (Johnson). Using Johnson's spy ability he decides to check out Twin POP. J2 is unable to establish contact and is not even sure if he is in the right vicinity, something was preventing his action. J2 Twisted his neck slightly showing he is miffed to say the least, at the same time reverting back to Smith who utters "You are here somewhere. I know you are here. I shall find you Mr Anderson and you will wish you never took that pill"..........
Meanwhile Agent Brown had been dispatched to take care of Social Darwin. SD could have done with a heads up while, luckily for him the matrix had incorporated training and potential use of programs and humans to use and practice abilities giving them opportunity to keep balance too . Dozer had acted on a what appeared to be an unsual deja vous, managing to assist SD in finding a phone in the next room. Brown followed and found SD gone :)?? This impromptu reaction of free will alone manged to fool Brown who is no simple program by any means.....
The watchmaker, who also made locks and keys in a previous program, managed to locate Trinity and kept the information under lock and Key. Only the watchmaking locksmith (who refused to go analogue or digital) could use this information.....
The Oracle had decided to let her random check program operate as a test of the Architects added string. It chose to inspect Prof. Templeton. The oracle is now older (by a nano second) and wiser (by 3T/bits).
Tank was a little concerned about the unusual reactions in the code and decided to play safe - keeping himself protected. Not taking any chances tonight.....
Apoc was acting a little weird after the Architects balancing act. Self diagnosed and made ready for the day action where Apoc was well with in natural element. Apoc relaxed and watched the green rain falling down the computer screen.
Non plussed, as much as the Frenchman probably, was confident in Neo and Trinity and decided that now was also a ggod time to watch the green rain, drip, drip, drip.....
Another confident and relaxed program with in the matrix. Knows when to await his calling and make the right move - never far from the Oracle he is o hand if needed like a father ensuring his daughters safety, he would be unstoppable.....
Cypher was not happy as a free human and wishes he had never heard of any damn pills - though he did like a Pils. real beer had no substitute. Did he want to go back. Cypher felt tonight was his chance to access the matrix via a computer in the Nebuchanezzer and a subroutine of a rat was encoded to send/carry the hidden information to Smith and his gang. This was his way of buying in to the pot for a VR win. Should he decide to go back to VR permanently and taking up where he left off.
The free humans where ready to take an aggressive stance - ready to access the matrix againa nd hoping there skills would find a rougue program or at least an agent to deal with......
|Day 1 Action|
Apoc woke up, strteched and made his way to cockpit of the Nebuchanezzar. The Matrix conditions did not seem right and Apoc had concerns, searched for anything meaningful.. "There could be someone in trouble and I have no skills with the matrix formulations". Apoc remembered the training simulation that she used for flying the Nebuchanezzar, and had recalls it can be used in the matrix with some skills. The Nebuchanezzar was directed in the matrix to locate JarZe and hover by. JarZe thinking it is a rescue promptly enters., finds it is empty and further searches show that for now he is locked in and there is no way out. An internal program of the hover ship plays and questions JZ loudly and continously. The interegation began......
JarZe is kidnapped and unable to comunicate untill he finds a way out. He will not be able to respond to the calls and questioning of his abilities...
He is unable to vote or communicate for one matrix day and one matrix night... basically thats after the N2 post.....
The Architect removed JZ's vote.
|Day 1: 110% pro0f|
|Many people entered the matrix. Many programs stood in there way.....
The programs continued to evolve and had improved despite the previous attempts to locate, destroy/take over the freed humans. One of the programs had clearly obfuscated the humans with such superior AI like agility that only time had been it's enemy. At one point the humans had focused entirely on Star Tiger and Crazypainter, they had no reasonable plan of capture/attack and found themselves lacking in the Matrix. Further searching and some unexpected delay proved providential. The humans had found a new target using some fortunate information that was dicovered in a different part of the matrix nodes. Upon this discovery the overwhelming turnaround brought about the early (or was it late) deletion of Agent Johnson, in the midst of his deletion he had one more Ace up his sleeve. Due to the un-choreographed randomness of the freed humans and their useful programs A/johnson had managed to sneak a pert of his code into a batch of strings that only the agents could decipher and possibly the rogue Merovingian. The agents gained as expected, any unused secrets from Johnson and adding two more - The Merovingian, due to his 'networking' skills also gained an extra ability. Meanwhile the Freed humand faction had lost some of theres....
|Night 2: Destruction of a common goal|
|The Oracle stubbed out her cigarette in the ashtray on the kitchen table and rose to get her cookies from the oven. She had just placed her hand on the oven door handle when she was struck by a vision. It only caused her to pause for a moment before she resumed taking out the fresh baked cookies. “Oh Impervious, I know who you are and you’re going to have an interesting night”. This is what she saw…
Neo had planned to meet up with the Oracle, but there was something he felt he had to do first. There was someone inside the Matrix that he didn’t trust. Neo flipped open his phone, “Operator. Have you got the trace program in place? Good. Call me when it’s finished.” He flipped the phone closed and dropped it onto the pocket of his leather duster. He fitted his sunglasses in place and after taking a quick look around he crouched as if coiling a spring. Neo gathered up the ambient energy of the Matrix around him and brought it into himself causing the ground at his feet to appear to ripple like the surface of a pond disturbed by a tossed stone. He remained crouched for a split second before rocketing into the sky.
Agent Smith had been running his own trace program. He switched it off with a slight twitch of his head. He had all the information he needed on the location of the human that was currently jacked into the Matrix. Smith began to run his copy program.
Crazypainter leapt off the roof of the ten story brownstone at a dead run. She easily cleared the four lanes of unaware traffic below her and slammed into roof of the building across the street, shattering the concrete. She rolled once, bounded up and kept running. She shouldered the door that lead inside splintering the jamb as she vaulted down to the next landing and gave a violent kick to door on the next level. Before continuing down the dark hall, she hazarded a look back toward the roof only to see agent Thompson, gun drawn, casually pursuing her from the roof. “Operator! I need an exit, FAST!, she yelled into her Bluetooth, as she sped down the hall.
Trinity kept to the shadows as she trialed Impervious. Neo felt the Matrix was too dangerous right now for her to be running about on her own. Impervious gave a glance backward and disappeared into the subway. If he had any plans for tonight Trinity was determined to put a stop to them.
The Merovingian finished eating and dabbed at his lips with the napkin before tossing it on the table. He pushed his chair back and got up. “If you want something done in this program you have to do it yourself”, he thought as he pulled a key from his breast pocket and inserted it into the knob on a side door. He swung it open and found himself between programs in a long endless hallway with metal doors lining both sides. He calmly strolled down the hall probing his teeth with a toothpick then stopped in front of the door he wanted. “this should lead me directly to my target”. He inserted the key in the knob and turned…
Something was wrong with the copy. Smith could tell almost immediately. For a brief moment he considered going to find the human whose signal he copied and destroying them, but decided against it. He knew there was some risk involved in attempting a copy over a patched line and had calculated the odds, which turned out to be in his favor and yet the copy still had turned out corrupt. He would have to shelve his plans. Agent Smith cursed the human they called “Tank” and swore to get his revenge. Now there was no time left to save his target.
Neo had gotten the coordinates he was looking for and plummeted to earth. He blasted straight through the pavement in the middle of 39th street with a deafening explosion leaving debris strewn across the street and a gaping hole that lead down to the subway.
Agent Thompson sprinted around the corner after Crazypainter with his gun hand in front of him. She snatched his leading arm, gave a tremendous pull and smashed the agent’s face against the wall. His head pulverizing the wallboard and brick beneath it. His sunglasses disintegrated into bits only to reform on the back of his head with an unphazed face behind them. The arm she had been holding reformed as well and now clutched her wrist as the other arm delivered a bone crushing punch to her chest. CP turned and broke through the window behind her onto the fire escape as bullets pocked the wall where her head used to be.
Trinity was still trailing Impervious in the subway when she heard a great BOOM. The earth shook and the ceiling tiles directly above Impervious shot out in all directions as Neo emerged from the ceiling and tackled impervious both of them rolling onto the subway tracks.
Impervious fought for his life, but was no match for Neo who blocked his every attack. Neo thrust out with a side kick that Impervious barely diverted in time, but still sent him flying across the tunnel. He glanced to his left and saw his only opportunity. The No. 11 train. He was starting to get winded but renewed his attack at Neo with vigor. He managed to get a hold on Neo’s jacket sleeve and gave a mighty yank in an attempt to pull him off balance causing them both to land on the ground directly in front of the No. 11. Neo shoved Impervious and back-flipped out of the way while Impervious dove forward to the other side of the tunnel as the train whizzed by. Neo could see Impervious smiling at him from the other side through the windows of the speeding train. Impervious was feeling pretty good about slipping away from Neo when a dirty service door to his right opened silently and the Merovingian stepped out and put a gun to his ear then pulled the trigger. By the time the No. 11 was past the small door was again locked tight.
Trinity saw the whole scene unfold, but remained in the shadows. As Neo flew back up the same hole he created, she turned and headed for the exit.
CP had her gun drawn when she jumped on to the railing of the fire escape and lunged across the nine story gap below her. She could hear bullets winging past her head as she rotated in mid-air and fired at the agent through her legs. Agent Thompson continued to pull the trigger as fast as this human program would let him until one of his bullets struck it’s intended target. Crazypainter exploded through the window pane of the high-rise across from where she jumped her body rolled to a stop against the far wall of the room she entered. Agent Thompson didn’t wait for her to get up, he knew she was already dead.
JarZe had been transferred out of the Matrix and onto the Nebuchadnezzar the day before. He wasn’t supposed to go back in until tomorrow and the wait was killing him. He had some business to take care of. He was due to be interrogated in a few hours, but he’d be damned if he was going to wait around for that. Lucky for him his computer skills weren’t lacking and he constructed his own carrier program by hacking into the ship’s service lines and within a few moments he was back in the Matrix.
The Oracle put her cookies on a tray to cool down and retook her seat at the kitchen table. She tapped a cigarette out of her pack and light it up. “I saw that coming”, she said as she blown smoke out with a sigh.
There was no information found while Jz was kidnapped, ships sytems reduced to 50 percent
|Day 2: Lynch or lunch|
|Matrix activity had been reduced and the Architect acted on the nodes and arrays that would affect the ability of either programs or humans avoiding use of parts of the system. Some would have to be upgraded to be compensated, hopefully that should fix it ....
Jarze managed to escape from the remote ship that Apoc had used to pacify or protect. Apoc's reason was still an unknown factor. Jz was glad to be out, or was he? Those in the matrix where having trouble making out the difference between the programmed agents and actual humans. Jz was ignored for a while and a search went for some irregular in-active or irregular codes. They could not make sense of it and again focused elsewehre. Finding two targets that may be of use, the programs running twin pop and izzy had been pushed to give up the codes, using many tricks of diversions firewalls and rewriting there programs it came to a point where a virus would be used to attach to the string and nullify that activity for good....
The virus too had been the subject of hacking and last minute attempts were made to de-activate and others to strenghten the virus too. The architec had decided to cease the activity for maintenance and send out the virus and watched as it made it's way through many random stings of code that had been sent into the matrix further trying to switch its path and each time being pulled towards izzy and twin pop......
Finally the virus went to the selected target and through to the final node that was attached to Izzy. Her eyes opened and stared as the rest of her body stiffened to a rigid form of steel unable to move, scram or signal in anyway due to her own synapses running havoc. Blood tricked from her eye sockets, ears and nose. After two mins she went limp and her lungs let out a last gasp, but her brain was already inactive....
|Night 3: A load of blocks|
|<start program> matrix N3 v1.3>...
Twin pop entered the matrix with one intent - to attack The Frenchman, determined and fearless of his powers and his controls over other rogue programs.......
Agent Smith who never took off his glasses and without even grimacing suddenly appeared at the wheel of a large articulated truck with as many large blazing head lamps as wheels. He floored the accelerator and burned rubber....
Cypher had more thoughts of befriending the agents, nervously he hacked into the program again and entered another code string. On it was the details of Switch placed unobtrusively into the code of the saliva in the feeding tube of a Culicidae (mosquito) nearby agent Smith. Would this one hit the wind screen not knowing that it's rear would be the last thing to go through it's mind? Smith was driving with an open window and the mozzy made contact and fed while leaving it's message. Smith unphazed swatted It. Cypher had betrayed again....
Neo was flying somewhere while in the matrix looking to find Twin POP, may be the subway would be useful. Neo thought he noticed some code was becoming a little erratic and attempted to find a way of tracing TP's movements....
Dozer had sent a blocking string into the matrix in search of Twin POP, Oracle had tried to ensure that humans wold be kept safe in the matrix for parity, and decided that Twin POP should be blocked in case he acted against one. Better to be safe than sorry.....
Agent Thompson had instructions from Smith to find the Oracle to divert her ability making sure she would be to busy to discover anything of them. The plan being to disrupt the human group further. Thompson had put in a binary switch that caused the action to fall on to Joe's Student....
Agent Brown was pacified behind a firewall nothing got in or out. Brown had to be kept safe to ensure that not all agents would be at risk tonight.....
Twin POP had found his target in the rest rooms of one of the underground stations, attempting to cause the demise of the Merovingian Twin POP was silent, quitely he pulled out a knife to make a violent thrust, while doing so he found that his hand had begun loosing grip of the knife. TP then took his pistol from his inside pocket and again his finger froze. He realised he had become powerless. Dozers code had perfectly found it's target and blocked all actions.....
Neo had also finaly located TP and made his entry (well, part of it) by putting his hands though the rest room wall and locked jis hands around TP's neck. All Neo had to do was squeeze quickly and firmly to ensure Tp's license to live had expired. Neo was struggling to make the final kill and kept hold of TP for over ten mins. TP was fading and returning. Neo gave one last big attempt to pull TP through the wall and in doing so looked him in the face and said "do I know you"? TP could barely mutter and in a grunted breath said "Doubt it ! You stopped attacking the Merovingian though, yo figure out the rest". Neo looked at TP and used a pulse of energy to drag TP outside in a fraction of a second and held his head in front of a passing train. TP's decapitated corpse was released to spill it's blood into the floor....
Smith through the wheel of the truck clockwise causing it to almost screech as it leaned on the near-side front wheel with the trailer swinging out as it began its way down Main Street. Izzy had not received any message of unusual activity in the matrix to warn her, and standing by a taxi rank had noticed the revving sound of what must be an enormous vehicle. As she looked up she saw the truck adjust it's direction and began to knock cars, taxis and vans out of it's way. Izzy saw a chance, a phone box not far along the road - she would have to act fast. Izzy made it to the call box and as the truck neared she could see that Smith had a grimaced kind of smile and maybe even a gleam in his eye. She heard the phone ring and she picked it up just in time to make contact. Unfortunately it was with the truck that Smith was driving... <program N3 v1.1 - end>
|Near the end of the day|
|Smith killed Star Tiger using Jones ability|
|Day 3: Farce off..|
|All humans and help programs had decided to act for the good of tilting the matrix balance in there favor. They could not be sure if they were being infiltrated or hacked by the Agent programs, were they behaving as humans and directing/controlling the vote? There was not a moment of unrest and exchange of ideas throughout the whole sequences, strings, nodes and the quadrillion of fix patches that the Architect added every day. Billions of humans were tapped into the matrix all day every day just to live out there lives for the benefit of machines that used to run off solar power. That is until the humans had let the sky darken through contamination. This time the agents could not find a way to defeat the humans thanks to Social Darwin's Beautiful Mind. Better safe than sorry.....
Meanwhile humans and agents alike where trying to hack the mainframe of the matrix to overbalance the election, IDNE had managed to successfully tap into the matrix simulation library of characters and hoped that no one would noice until the deed was done and in doing so added an unknown character to increase the vote against JarZe. The Architect had spotted it Immediately and canceled the effect for good. The agents also had access but more easily as they had less firewalls to overcome, Brown had managed to spoil the vote of IDNE which did not count.
The resulting factor was that the two tied lynchees would have to meet and fight it out in the Architect's simulator. Randro and Jarze, both expecting a martial art contest,. Instead they had to match wits by solving BrainnDen puzzles set by Bonanova. They commenced and were equaling each others ability going at it brain cell for brain cell. There seemed to be an unusual amount of acctivity on Randro's part, a quickening of mental acivity, while JZ in comparison slowing down. The results were still being matched one for one.
The fianl decider would be on speed over a probability math problem over a role of two die, first to solve would win.
JZ saw his chance and made either a lucky guess or the fastest possible solution that had ever been witnessed so far. Randro coming last was given the chance to die with the freed humans at the hands of the machines or go back into the VR matrix as if he had never been removed and the strongest of firewalls to ensure that he never came out again. Randro/Cypher decided to rejoin the VR matrix.
regarding abilities up and down grades - I'll have to explain more at the end - if someone reminds me. Telling you now will be giving aid to one side. I am doing my best to take a view on each offense or offenses.
|Apoc appeared in secret.....|
In an act of daring Apoc had made use of a one off ability to feed a code into the matrix that Cypher had been creating; it creates a distraction by replicating the woman in the red dress that mouse had previously used for training Neo and other freed humans. the replication was continuous until the anti Trojan programs could block it and quarantine or delete it
Apoc knew this could only be used once at this section of the matrix cycle. It gave Apoc time to run the Nebuchanezzar directly beside renan and thus kidnap him.
Renan was out of action for the rest of N4 only, an will not be able to post until D4.
|Night 4: Codicil|
Tonight the one they call The One was nowhere to be found in Zion. Neo had entered the matrix with the specific idea of taking out a threat that bothered the freed humans for some time. Neo had his dark shades and long black leather coat and was doing his superman trick again......
a la code.....
If Smith could succeed the machines would break through to Zion and the freed humans would be eliminated in one large battle. Johnson's deletion was a blow to the Architects balance in the matrix but with Smiths formidable abilities, the matrix was holding well for now, could the humans take control. Smith found another agents unused code within the matrix, he was becoming invincible. Johnson had cleverly left a mirror tag string in a near by node array that absorbed Johnson's secret ability if it had not been put to use. Smith was constantly trawling the matrix for anything that he could gather up for use later. Later had come, And a diversion was sent through the matrix....
Oracle had a premonition that there would be only one death in the matrix this time. Just in case she needed information, she decided to send a little spider-ware out herself, checking for any possible agent behavior. The oracle had tagged the spider to find GC and bring back any copy of information that could give his ID........
Agent Brown had been considered at times the equal of smith with his developing AI becoming almost sentient too. Brown was known for his stonewall firewalls and had decided that his actions would be best suited to interfering with the help programs that are part of the balance of the system. One of those had been targeted for one of Brown's blocks......
Dozer by name but not by nature, until now. Dozer had a touch of nerves. The recent activites had taken its toll on him, he must have been getting tired. May have been looking at the falling threads of green code for too long. He had decided to send off a massive thread of blocking strings through to a target area he expected to cause trouble JarZe......
Dozer had overloaded his code not realizing it was so heavily encrypted that it would buffer slowly though certain parts of the system. Smith had felt the code moving in the direction of Brown and had sent Jonhnson's diversion array to meet it, it found it's way to Andro an at the same time dragging with it the block that Brown had sent out. Andromeda's actions had been double whammied and frustrated to say the least. Neo went into a spiral movement and dropped to earth. Directly in the middle of the street leaving a dent two feet deep and eight feet wide, he stands cool in black and unruffled immediately in front of his victim, Jarze. JarZe was not concerned in fact confident, he had seen the battles Neo had with Smith and did not doubt his own abilities. JZ leapt at Neo and gave a flying kick square on the middle of the chest sending into the side of a parked truck leaving a huge dent in the trailer panel. Neo is suspend in the dented the metal. For a moment Jz thinks it's over already. Neo looked down at the road and then over to Jz, stepping away from the truck Neo leaps forward to Jz and Jz decides to match the movement they are heading towards each other with fists connecting on each others jowels leaving a fist mark for a short moment. Jz's shades had fell off on impact with Neo's fist. At that moment his dark eyes were exposed and Jz could see more and a t the same time less. He could see the awesome impactive figure of an ice cold martial arts superman while not being able to clearly see the code. Jz was at a disadvantage. At that moment Neo had seen the hesitation and flew at Jz again who thought he had blocked and grabbed Neo from behind, only to find himself looking down at the street below. Neo had taken him a thousand feet above the street. Jz saw his future in that instant, infact that's all his future lasted. Neo pulled his victim down at an incredible speed and buried him in the tarmac below. JarZe's head was facing the sky, his chest was flat on the road. Neo stood still for a moment not looking at the body, adjusted his dark glasses bent down to almost one knee and in a split second took off.
Left is right!....
Renan, had been left alone by Apoc for a while due to the tirade of questions that renan had managed to avoid or put spin or was he simply telling the truth? While Apoc was refreshing the starving and weakened renan had noticed the keys of his shackles on the table nearby. At full stretch of his arms body and legs, as if he had grown an extra couple of inches. Renan had managed to fondle table leg with his foot enough to draw it forward. The rest was simple; a sharp kick sent the table away a couple of feet and the keys falling to the floor. Simple manipulation of the keys towards him and twisting his body, renan had the keys in his hands. Moments later he was free and running for an exit.....
Basically Renan, escaped and Apoc had no information
Let the lynching commence - civilized lynching of course
|Day 4: Dark Gray Cell|
Apoc foew by hovering close to GC who had not noticed the huge craft looming upon him due to the pilots unrivaled skills. A split second later Apoc had him locked on the bowls of the Nebuchadnezzar. In a dark dank corner where old parts of the ships computer systems were kept should they ever need recycling, GC sat for a while pondering his dilemor. Awaiting the interrogation of Apoc did not seem to concern him.....
No contest there from renan
