OOC: Update coming up! Don't post until I say it's okay!
Everything seemed to be going rather well excluding some minor scuffles here and there of course, but that was to be expected with a group this varied though. Then it happened.
The lights flickered slightly before the entire room would be engulfed in a thick blackness where nothing could be seen.
“Nobody panic.” The players could hear Jedah calming them through the darkness. “It will be all over soon.”
Suddenly a muffled scream followed by a loud crack sound and then silence. After that the black veil would be removed from the players eyes and they would be met by a rather morbid scene.
From the balcony a rope had been tied and at the end of it would be BBA Mega Man hanging a few feet from the ground. The crack they had heard had been the washed up Digger's neck that had snapped. Under his body the players would find a note saying "I CANNOT LIVE LIKE THIS!"
“Suicide?” Jedah mused curiously. “Never mind, I detect a faint life sign, no doubt his partner. Follow me.” Jedah spoke as he hovered up to the second floor and entered the large door in the middle.
After a quick inspection of the room's (and a quick dispatching of a stray zombie in the corridor) they would find D-Man in the bathroom inside a bathtub filled with water, looking like he'd received some burn marks on his body. “It appears the strain was too much for the poor man's heart. He too has perished.” Leading them back to the main entrance the players would find the body of Mega Man missing. One of the players would run back to the bathroom to find that D-Man's body too had gone missing.
“The traitors have struck.” Jedah replied as everyone were gathered at the entrance. “Now you must vote on who you think could be the murderers among you. You will not be alone however, for I have two agents among you with the power to make their guess...” Jedah would reveal to them a crystal ball. “This item will shine blue if they guessed correctly or shine red if they guessed wrong.” He'd look towards the players. “Good luck, you will most certainly need it.”

There is no human whose life is not of value.
Turning around, Gene found that his mysterious 'partner' had finally decided to show himself. "Holy crap! Didn't anyone tell you that it's rude to sneak up on people like that?"
Forgive me, but I did not want to reveal myself unless it was necessary.
"...and the deaths of two parodies counts as 'necessary'? You have some strange priorities, yanno?"

We Are One!
The GIANT-SIZE Traitor Game: War Of The Exiles!
Tony was shocked by the grizzly scene
Yellow Devil didn't react, probably because he didn't have much ability to make an expression. However Mega man was dead which probably was good in his book.
"Who could have done such a thing!"
Tony went straight into thinking mode stroking his chin.
He tried to make sense of it, perhaps he had seen something
"I wish I had my laptop that can auto-translate"
Has to remember his suggestion for the traitor game

can you crack the code?
Do I dare believe my eyes!? HAH! It is you Web Head! Guess 'Pops' wasn't 'cool' enough to come to this party but I'm glad you came because once this is all over, I get to have my fun with you.."Carnage warned glaring at Spider man before hearing about the deaths. "Aw and this time I didn't do the slaughtering! Whoever did will pay!" Carnage growled before laughing. "For not sharing with me that is..."
"Professor Xavier, or Professor X for short, founded the X-Men. Have no clue why he chose 'men' because we had female members early on, but the name stuck, so there ya go. Ah ain't got no Crying Game surprise for anyone, Dan. You're a bit more feminine than Ah am it seems, wearing pink like that." She teased with a wink.
"Well, I've helped defeat a lot of Wily's robots, along with Mega... I built a hospital... lots of things really!" Roll replied enthusiastically.

"Oh my!" Roll remarked at the death of Bad Box Art Mega Man. "They've struck already!" Roll walked over to Mega Man and whispered, in binary, so only he and perhaps Ultron could understand - "That is one ugly version of you, Mega! Promise me you'll never let yourself go like that?"
"Ah don't think whoever this killer is, is the ostentatious type from what ah've seen. So that sort of rules the bad-attitude pair over there out." Rogue hitched a thumb at Carnage and Nemesis. And Ultron would be bragging about it by now, despite himself.Other than that, who did this is anyone's guess." Rogue commented thoughtfully.
OOC - witholding vote for now.
Cammy would be horrified at the happenings, and in a moment of contemplation, moved her hand to cover the youngest of their members eyes as she spoke.
"Oh my! Captain Britain, do you think this was-"
"Actually suicide? Unlikely."
And flying up to the place where BBA Megaman once hung, he frowned and circled it once before he spoke.
"Whoever killed him could have been any one of us with sufficient strength, or possibly mind-controlled him to the point where he killed himself. The note seems to suggest this, though whether or not its his handwriting, is anyones guess."
Cammy on the other hand, would blink at the logical thread before she frowned and spoke.
"I'll go and investigate the bathroom then. Anyone coming with me?"
"Too bright a shine, draws eyes of envy."
OOC: Whoa, a fair bit of interaction to deal with. Also, I'm trying to figure out how best to illustrate Nero's hot-headedness without having him immediately get pissed off and challenge the host to a duel. Because somehow I think that would be A Bad Idea. Also, first part takes place before the update.
Spider-Man didn't allow himself to outwardly react, but the harsh words from his surrogate mother still stunned him. Above all else, though, he needed to remain calm if he was going to figure out what was going on.Aunt May: "Hmph! I might have known that dreadful Spider-Man was involved. Always causing chaos over the city.
However, upon hearing from his coworker and ex-girlfriend (not that she knew it), the webhead immediately turned to her and tried to assure her that things would work out. "Hang on, slow down a second Miss Brant. So JJJ's been accused of killing a guy who wasn't me? And now Cthulhu's granny is trying to make the universe take one where the sun doesn't shine? That's quite a problem we've got here.....""Spider-Man?" Betty asked. "I'm glad you're here! There's so much I need to tell you!"
She didn't know where to begin. "My boss ... J. Jonah Jameson. He's been accused of murdering a Spider-Man impersonator. I was forced to testify at his trial before being summoned here. But that's not the worst of it. We've all been summoned here because a Chaos Lord is threatening the universe. And now we're here, along with Ultron ... and Carnage. You've stopped Carnage before. I know you can do it again."
Grimacing beneath his mask, Spidey continued, "While I do have experience dealing with that Kassidy, I only managed to beat him by teaming up with Iron Man. Rest assured, though, I'll do everything I can to keep him in check and stop things here from getting too crazy."
Incensed, Nero prepared to activate his Devil Bringer so he could grab the guy and whale on him, as he shouted, "You know whose life doesn't matter? YOURS! I just killed a God wannabe to save her, and I'm not against taking you out too!"Jedah: “Her life does not matter, for if we don't succeed here her life as well as everyone else's lives will be forfeit.”
Just before he drew Yamato, however, Spider-Man attempted to calm him down. "Hang on a second, kid. I don't know about you, but for me, time seemed to stop for a second or two before I wound up here."
Surprised, Nero's killer aura faded away slightly as he replied, "Same for me, the world stood still and then I was ripped out of my universe and dropped here."
Waving around his pointer finger in a manner befitting a lecturer, Spider-Man said, "Now, I'm not a specialist in cross-dimensional spacetime disturbances, but if I had to make an educated guess, I'd say that when we get done here, odds are that we'll probably end up in our own worlds exactly where and when we left. It's no gaurantee, but I'm think you'll probably still be able to save Kyrie when this is all said and done."
Seemingly debating himself for a moment, Nero eventually muttered, "Tch. Fine then, if that's the case, then let's get this bullshit over with."
OOC: and now, post-update.
Spider-Man was completely alarmed when the power had gone out - first off, his Spider-Sense hadn't gone off, and he'd immediately assumed that Carnage was about to start a massacre, but then it turned out that that hadn't been the case. Or at least, it was probably not Carnage - the murders weren't messy enough to fit his MO, not to mention that he'd be bragging about it.
Nero barely spared the corpses a second glance. He'd fought and slain countless demons and devils - the death of someone he didn't know didn't bother him too much.
More annoyed than much else at the moment, Spidey nevertheless kept his guard up as he bitterly replied, "Of course I know it wasn't you, Kassidy, because you're not bragging about it."Carnage: Do I dare believe my eyes!? HAH! It is you Web Head! Guess 'Pops' wasn't 'cool' enough to come to this party but I'm glad you came because once this is all over, I get to have my fun with you.."Carnage warned glaring at Spider man before hearing about the deaths. "Aw and this time I didn't do the slaughtering! Whoever did will pay!" Carnage growled before laughing. "For not sharing with me that is..."
Nero said, "Nah, I'll stay here and keep an eye on everyone."Cammy: "I'll go and investigate the bathroom then. Anyone coming with me?"
Spider-Man sighed and asked, "You don't trust anybody here, do you?"
Glaring at him - clearly still pissed off somewhat from earlier - Nero replied, "Not really. Do you?"
Pausing for a moment, thinking of Aunt May, Rogue, Betty Brant, and Captain Britain, Spider-Man eventually said, "There are a few people here that I'm confident I can trust, even if it's just trusting their consistency."
Scoffing, Nero muttered, "Good for you, then."
“Welcome, it's a honor to see a Fear Lord grace us with its presence.”
Near the entrance to the dining hall the players could now find a map.
Showing the floor plans of the mansion, just in case anyone wanted to go do some exploring.
