"Body control. See, uh, I cling onto things, and, I'm able to control them. In fact, uh, this human here isn't really me. I'm a deer tick."
The girl boggles at this revelation. I have several concerns.
The detective blinks at Nick for a moment.
Det. GC: Huh. Maybe we should get some sort of device one day so that we can see and hear you clearly when you're not attached to a host at the moment. That way it'll be easier to keep track of you if something bad happens. You may never know when something in this world would cause one's powers to go out of wack or separated from one's pals. I don't have any powers so I don't have to worry about the former. But I'm getting ahead of myself, so let's get going to lunch, shall we?
He stands up and starts moving to the nearest exit to the room.
Shade:" Yeah, I know what you mean. I can't use my powers if there aren't any shadows and that includes everything being dark."
Hoping that he has explained his weakness properly he follows Gamechanger to the door.
The girl nods. "Ostensibly I could do anything with magic, if I manipulated the energies correctly. But so far, what I've learned is just the basics — simple long and short range attack spells, a healing spell, a protective spell... Six in total, I think."
After a while of walking down some flights of stairs, the detective arrives at the parking garage that's built into the building.
Det. GC: I don't know what your modes of transportation are, but here's my ride.
He motions to the sleek cobalt blue convertible that looks like it came straight from the 1960's.
"Long-range teleportation spell! I know a short-range one too, but... well, it's a work in progress. I'm still counting it, though." She looks at her phone for a moment, then tilts her head in confusion. "What's the name of the place we're going, again? I need to know where I'm teleporting to, obviously, and I was going to look up the address..."
Shade:"As you've seen I can travel from shadow to shadow even if they aren't connected, though that does make it a lot easier. I think I'll be taking the car though, if there isn't any room I can always hide in its shadow and travel along like that."
He didn't really trust his ability to travel between unconnected shadows, after all even with him knowing the right floor and him starting from the building's lobby it took him several tries to reach the group.
The detective gets in his car and opens the front passenger door for Shade.
Det. GC: Here you go Shade. Just as a small warning this car has a few tricks under its surface so you'd better make sure you're seatbelted.
He then speaks to everyone else.
I'm heading to Italian food place and getting myself some chicken Fettuccine Alfredo along with whatever daily soup and salad they have available. The name of the place is Pasta Palace I think. As I said before there's a sub place and a steakhouse nearby if you're interested in those. The name of the steakhouse is Cactus Cassidy's and the name of the sub place is Subterranean Sub's.

The girl taps on her phone for a moment. "I suppose I'll go to Pasta Palace, then," she says, as a circle of Instant Runes appears under her feet. "See you there."
Shade gets into the car. "I'm fine with whatever, don't know any of those restaurants after all so."
Nick enters as well. ďIím fine with wherever serves meat. Letís just drive and find a place.Ē
Next post is the villain introduction post!
Det. GC: Traffic happens to be bad today, so...
He presses a button, and suddenly the wheels flip on their side and the car now hovers over the ground.
No rule saying that we can't simply fly over the traffic! Now hold on!
He then pulls a lever causing boosters to jut out from the sides of the car and activate, sending the car zooming into the streets.
Meanwhile, a very tall figure in a stuffy brown coat walks aimlessly through the city, making notable impact sounds as she meanders by.

Meanwhile, about an hour before the hero meeting at a closed castle-themed haunted house attraction...
A meeting table full of delicious food was in the center of the room. Seated at one end was someone entirely clad in black armor.
Black Knight: Hope my fellow villains answered my flyers, it wasn't easy stealing all this food from the local restaurants without getting caught.
The same towering figure is now seen entering the castle. The figure is about eight feet tall, with large, scraggly, black hair, and very pale skin. The figure seems female, but not feminine.
A circle of Instant Runes appears, and an individual of mysterious and indistinct gender appears in a puff of black magical smoke. They don't say anything out loud, just yet, seeming to be lost in thought. She took the bait. What now? I already told you. Did you forget? Nope, just checking.
After landing in an empty spot close to the haunted house a teenager withdrew the dragon wings he used to fly there, in a clearly painful manner. The whole thirty seconds it took the damaged amulet with a dragon head engraved on it he wore around his neck released green sparks of energy from the edges of it's missing one third. With that done he causally walked up to the castle and entered.
Suddenly, you hear slavic hardbass pounding through the night. And then a fucking Volkswagen Golf crashes through the castle entrance, loud slavic noises emitting from it alongside the hardbass. Four men in tracksuits climb out, clearly drunk off their gourd and armed with Makarovs and AKs. One speaks up. "HELLO, IS NIKOLAI. I HEARD THIS WAS THE ANNUAL SLAV MEETIN-" And then one of his friends accidentally shoots up everyone else, then passes out. A orange haired woman, 6'6", dressed in a suit, and wearing gloves, had been watching the mess. "...Okay. Hello." She grabs a AK from the group of Slavs, and then heads deeper into the castle.
A strange, glitchy effect appears on one of the walls and a woman somehow walks through the wall. She's wearing visor-like glasses with purple lenses, her messy hair has two antenna-like parts sticking out from the top, and her clothes seem almost torn and ripped - but cut in clean, square shapes - at the ends of the sleeves and pant legs. "Hey. This was the place, right?" she says as she looks around.

Those entering the haunted house castle would see a sign in the entrance reading: "If you're here for the villain meeting, it's on the fifth floor in the staff-only section."
"Hmm." She takes note of the sign, checks her pilfered AK's magazine, and heads off to find the staff-only areas.
"...Looks weirdly empty... don't tell me I'm here way too early? Or misread the invite? You'd think there'd at least be... oh, what's that sign?" She walks closer to the sign in the entrance and reads it. "Fifth floor? Got it."

The teen read the sign, ignoring the strangely dressed woman since he didn't know she was there for the same reason. He headed straight to the fifth floor, while otherwise acting like a regular visitor.
Those who would find the meeting room would immediately see the large selection of food... and a seemingly adorable white rabbit in a cage near the entrance.
