Current Mission Goals
  • Recruit help from The True Federation
  • Recruit help from Magestar
  • Recruit help from MercTown (MARS)
  • Recruit help from Psyscape
  • Recruit help from Dweomer
  • Recruit help from Stormspire
  • Investigate rumors of a band of demons in the area.
  • In three separate locations within Soulharvest, rituals will be conducted simultaneously which, when complete, will strengthen Nxla as he manifests on Earth:
    • The three rituals will be conducted at night (on either June 4th or 5th, nobody knows which as that info has been compartmentalized).
      • The first location is in a remote meadow within Soulharvest, but nearer the ruins of Lexington.
      • The second location is in the Harvesters' original temple deep in the Soulharvest forest.
      • The third location is among the ruins of Old Pilgrim Road on the outskirts of the ruins of Lexington itself.

Atmospheric ambiance (open in new tab)
Conditions:
Date: Summer, Saturday, June 3, 111 P.A.
Time: 2031
Environmental Effects: 85°, night time/dark--ACTIVE THUNDERSTORM!
Ley Line: 22 miles long, North-South axis from just north of Lexington ruins through & past Stormspire
Ley Line Effects: Most magic O.C.C.s can draw 10 P.P.E. once per melee & increase the range and duration of spells by 50%
Location: Northeast of the Ruins of Lexington

Order of Battle
Daphne (MARS; Modified Kittani Transformable Robot-Fighter)
Lahz (Spooks; Marauder PA)
----Tony the Tiger-Bot (Lahz's)--shadowing Lahz
Felix (MARS, flying solo)
Minerva (Spooks; Black Talon Motorcycle)
Jack (Roughnecks; Black Talon Motorcycle)
Zed (Roughnecks; flying solo)

Minerva once more activates her armor’s psychic force field & just in time as it’s blasted by the Harvester as he takes off running. Shooting over his shoulder with Minerva in close pursuit, he’s only able to shoot her once before she cleaves his pistol in two with her psi-sword. The two attempt to kill each other in a running fight until she finally skewers him through his side.

Lahz lands a devastating blast across the upper body of Unknown 2 with his WI-GL8, and follows it up with a second blast before turning his ire on the Blighter behind him. A half-dozen blasts later, the thing is dead on the field, though it managed to get a few swipes in of its own before going down. But his former target was by no means finished, and demonstrates the relentlessness of the undead by repeatedly landing wild hammer blows all across Lahz’s powered armor when his back is turned. One tiny indicator on Lahz’s HUD winks out indicating one of his secondary cameras is destroyed, both arms and legs have taken damage with the right leg nearing structural failure, his pulse cannon has taken some damage, and the physical integrity of the suit itself is down to around thirty percent. A flash of light to the North catches his eye and he sees past his HUD info to witness an oval-shaped, man-sized tear in the fabric of reality open. Harvester 1 steps towards it, pauses to shout, "Fight to the death! Kill everything!" and then steps through the tear. The portal vanishes as he does.

Unknown 1 rushes to club Tony, but Tony rushes to the East with incredible haste. Zed has to fly fast and hard to catch up to Tony in order to touch him with a protective spell. Unknown 5 struggles vainly beneath the weight of Daphne’s robot as she exits her transformable fighter, drags her NG-101 Rail Gun out of the pilot’s compartment, and takes aim at Unknown 1, and starts hosing the thing with burst after burst of silver-coated slugs as it dashes across the field of battle in pursuit of Lahz’s robot. The slugs shred huge chunks from the humanoid figure’s armored body, and the robot puts up a good fight with its own weapon, but the undead thing is simply too much for the automaton and on the far East side of the field it ends up smashed and blasted despite Zed’s magical assist to the point that its nuclear power plant explodes. The blast throws back the thing and blasts Zed higher up into the air, and pops Zed’s own magical protection. Daphne starts noticing fire from her left flank, and takes pains to avoid it through advantageous positioning, the thing with the laser rifle (Unknown 7) lands an incredibly lucky shot which breaches her her armor's environmental seals near her waist. She can hear the hiss of the air inside the pressurized suit escaping over the din of gunfire.

Felix radios the group as he sends ion blasts into Unknown 7 downrange, "Enemigo mago, behind dark wall! Ayuda me por favor! Can someone frees me? I has magic things holds me in place!" He pours ion blasts into the thing, but to no discernible effect. Meanwhile, something is hammering against his psionic force field with tremendous aggression. Between strike, he thinks he hears a snarl of frustration and rage...but he sees nothing. His field collapses under the assault while he's firing ineffectually against the distant adversary. Panicked, he hurriedly wills another field into place split seconds before another blow lands.

Jack goes to activate his armor’s force field when he realizes it has no such feature. He manages to land only a single strike, as does his opponent, but his sword has no effect. Pardon, but I don’t seem to be effective in this capacity. Perhaps you should try some other means of self-defense.

The Gravediggers rush across the war-torn field and begin to tear into the bodies of the freshly deceased with gluttonous abandon, but as they begin, a number of the dead rise to their feet, charred and still smoking, and begin to lumber away from the heaps of dead and toward the panicked hostages attempting to flee.

Order of Battle
Rocky (MARS; NG-XF17 Ironwing)
--T-42 (MARS; driving QV-119 Lynx Hover Jeep)
Saul (MARS; QV-119 Lynx Hover Jeep)
Wolf Whitaker (Roughnecks; RH-1001A Appaloosa Light Robot Horse)
Mierin (Spooks; MI-3000 Firefly Hovercycle)
John (Roughnecks; afoot)
Zion (MARS)

Saul’s shadowy form splits in twain as a rod of brilliant light seemingly erupts from within the darkness. He slicks his laser sword between the seams of the door where they’re fastened together by the padlock which separates like water. He then switches the laser sword back off, steps back, and gestures to Wolf to enter first though Wolf likely cannot discern such motion given Saul’s shadow-shrouded form. Wolf and Mierin have a curious exchange before Mierin pushes open the door and surveys what’s inside. It’s so dark that Mierin and Wolf can’t see shit, so Mierin blinks hard three times to trigger her cybernetic eyes’s switch to passive nightvision, and Wolf slips his multi-optics band down over his eyes and switches them to the same. Saul finds the darkness to be entirely natural, but total. Mierin then Wolf cautiously take the short staircase down, wary of any traps, but finding no sign of such. As their feet settle on the cold concrete of the room that was locked away behind those open doors behind them, they note that this looks quite clearly like the original basement, not the spruced-up, slightly elevated one stocked with foodstuffs before. The concrete, however, isn’t split or eroded in any way from moisture, tree roots, or anything of the like. This room is quite intact, structurally speaking, and there are impressions and outline stains on the walls to indicate that things once hung upon them, that this space once served a functional purpose. Beyond the room, to the North and to the East are breaches in the walls which lead to passages which look far less engineered, and more primitively excavated, whether by people, natural forces, beasts or monsters is unclear, but each leads away from the room in which they stand.

John pulls out and activates his lightblade for a source of light, but finds it pitifully suited to the task, casting light less than a dozen feet out. He raises it over his head and peers into the rainy dark. John steps over a few trees and walls, Zion scurrying far below in a dual effort to keep up and not get squished by a misplaced step, and arrives at the ruined stairwell. It looks intact, if a bit overgrown and the sidewalls eroded. If it looks like it opens up under the surface, he checks the direction of any tunnel against the inn and mentally plots a course between the building and this stairwell. A few steps later and he’s back in front of the inn.

Saul ascends to the main floor of the inn to find Zion and Rocky just inside the door. Saul looks like a walking ink-stain amid the still relatively well-lit backdrop of the inn’s dining hall.

Rocky, having phased through the eastern wall of the inn, stands surrounded by trees and the crumbling ruins of ancient walls about twelve feet high. He can sense the radiating waves of supernatural evil coming from Northeast of his current position, so he quietly makes his way in that direction, wending around walls and between trees, then crossing the road they walked in on. John and Zion see only shadows in the darkness though he passes very near during their transit. (Rocky, check your inbox for your map since you're off solo.)

Order of Battle
Mouser (not yet arrived)
Ray the Robot (Lahz's; NE-ATRV)
William (Roughnecks; NE-ATRV)
Wakiza (Roughnecks; NE-ATRV)
Vheld (Spooks; NE-ATRV)
----Silhouette (Vheld's; NE-ATRV)

----Slithn (Vheld's; NE-ATRV)
----Brokswa (Vheld's; NE-ATRV)
----Bel'Dar (Vheld's; NE-ATRV)
Ronan (Spooks; Cargonaut)
Seymour (Spooks; Cargonaut)

Mouser ducks back behind a corner of the huge stone, out of sight of the entrance and consults his sensory inputs. There’s no apparent electro-mechanical traps in evidence, nor anything that appears to be concealed. He has no idea what's going on or where people may be, though the demonic host outside the structure is suggestive of nothing good. One of the demons is an infernal sprite, the other is some kind of previously unclassified demon. Attempting to initiative radio contact, however, proves fruitless and he’s able to determine that something is flooding the entire EM band used for radio communications, but strangely, he cannot detect an EM source which is causing this effect.

Murder Wraith 5 swings wildly at Ronan, but despite its incredible speed, rarely manages to land a blow as it seems unable to focus on him. Wakiza leaps away from Unknown 8 and lands before the Murder Wraiths firing upon him. Harvester 1 mutters a quick incantation from behind Ronan and suddenly he and Murder Wraith 5 are stuck fighting face to face amid a carpet of writhing blue tentacles around their feet. Harvester 3 is covered from head to toe in blood as he finishes his stabbing and slashing frenzy, and the pile of bodies atop the altar are mute testament to his ruthless efficiency and amazing speed. Unknowns 7 & 9 smash bloody red fists against Seymour’s force field repeatedly, causing it to shimmer as a shower of blood falls to the stone tiles around him. Unknown 8 moves as quickly as it can in pursuit of Wakiza, but it’s clearly not very fast afoot. Ronan radios Seymour as he encases himself in a skin of silver. Vheld drops back to get into cover, and nearly trips over Sil who’s directly behind him.

Wakiza wills a telekinetic force field around himself, the Murder Wraiths, and Harvester 2. Seymour attempts to drop and roll forward, but he’s physically blocked by the bodies of the animated blood things. Harvester 2 finishes muttering as he points at Wakiza. Nothing discernible happens, no lightning, black clouds of doom, no new legions of undead, but he suddenly realizes he feels...normal. (spells negated) Harvester 3 turns around with a blood-slicked grimace and begins chanting. Ronan forms a silver blade in his left hand.

Wakiza activates one of his armor’s TW features and teleports behind Harvester 3. He’s atop the bloody altar, calf-deep in human suffering as the mound of people at his feet are gasping their last breaths and clutching at his legs. Harvester 1 finishes muttering as he points at Vheld. Nothing discernible happens, no lightning, black clouds of doom, no new monstrous terror looming before him, but he suddenly realizes he feels...normal. (spells negated) Harvester 3 unleashes an arc of lightning which grazes Wakiza’s forcefield as he’s standing upon the altar. Ronan and Murder Wraith 5 engage in a tremendously fast-paced sword fight. Ronan takes a few slashes, but delivers substantially better than he received. His opponent’s blade looks unremarkable enough, but it drew blood as though he were a mundane. Vheld casts a disabling, time-distorting spell which washes out from his hands in a cone of pale blue light. Harvester 1 seems to be moving bodily slower than before, but no one else seems effected.

Wakiza drops his rifle and slaps Harvester 3 while calling upon his sword to deliver a mindshatter. The cursed necromancer seems unaffected. Harvester 1 begins moving at a comical rate of speed towards Ronan and the Murder Wraith with whom he’s engaged. Harvester 2 seems to become electrified with blue energy and rippling bolts of lightning under the dome of telekinetic energy. Harvester 3 blasts Wakiza with another arc of lightning. Wakiza’s forcefield pops under the electric assault. Vheld draw Odin’s Blade from the bag brought to him by Sil.

Wakiza slaps Harvester 3 again while calling upon his sword to deliver a mindshatter. The cursed necromancer’s eyes go wild and unfocused, his jaw sags open, and his shoulders go slack. Harvester 1 mutters something and points in Ronan’s direction. A mass of hundreds of wriggling worms suddenly covers the Murder Wraith. It’s disgusting, but Ronan’s feeling bold and so only grimaces through the sight. Vheld charges the staring, tyrannical, floating eye creature while blasting lightning ahead of him. The lightning blasts right through the illusion and Vheld is elated to have his suspicions validated. He charges through the horrific illusion and as he emerges on the other side sees a young woman writhing on the floor, a fist-sized hole in her abdomen that’s been electrically cauterized.

Wakiza grabs a smoke grenade and tosses it towards Harvester 2 while shifting vision to Thermal. The smoke grenade strikes his telekinetic force field and bounces to the ground as it discharges a black plume. Harvester 1 shoots Ronan in the back with an energy pistol to no discernible effect beyond the damage to his clothes while Vheld charges Harvester 1 with a strike from his rune sword. The spectral-looking armor which adorns the Harvester shimmers a bit under the blow of the sword, but Vheld’s quite familiar with invincible armor, and so is unsurprised. Wakiza calls upon his sword to mute Harvester 2 who he can see the thermal signature of through the smoke. Vheld swings at Harvester 1 who’s finally managed to turn to face him, but too slowly, and the necromancer’s armor takes another blow. Wakiza calls upon his sword to mute Harvester 2 again, just to be safe. Wakiza wills into manifestation a second telekinetic force field around the two Murder Wraiths, and as Harvester 2 is among them, traps him inside it as well, before dispelling the original telekinetic force field he’d manifested.

Augur wrote:A flash of light to the North catches his eye and he sees past his HUD info to witness an oval-shaped, man-sized tear in the fabric of reality open. Harvester 1 steps towards it, pauses to shout, "Fight to the death! Kill everything!" and then steps through the tear. The portal vanishes as he does.


IF Felix sees this occur, he will shout out to the Harvester, "Hey! Leavings so soon? You forgots my soul!" as a parting taunt to the one who has given him so much trouble before his psionic force field collapses under heavy the assault of his invisible assailant. He quickly reforms his psionic force field and focuses on the threat at hand.




Felix, under attack by something he cannot see, hears a hint of a frustrated snarl. The Flying Tiger grins while saying, "Comes out, comes out, wherever you are!", taunting the assailant as he activates his thermal-imaging function on his helmet to try to get a reading on whatever it is that is attacking him at, presumably, close range.

Contingencies
Prime Contingency: If Felix's Psionic Force Field is breached, he will immediately interrupt whatever he is doing to create another one while drawing from the Ley Line for 1d6+1 = 3 I.S.P. (net cost of 7 I.S.P.)

IF Felix sees whatever-it-is via thermal-imaging, he will then exclaim, "Peeks-a-boos, I sees you!" and then engage with the thing in hand to hand combat. Though limited by the spell which restricts his movement (and therefore, his leaping dodges), Felix is not entirely defenseless against the aggressor, and presses the attack. (rolls above)

IF Felix sees his hand to hand strikes are doing no damage, he pulls out his silver-plated commando knife and tries that instead, reasoning that, since his Ion blasts did nothing, perhaps these foes suffer the same vulnerabilities that vampires do.

IF Felix, using thermal-imaging, is still unable to detect whatever-it-is that is attacking him, he will radio the group, "Somethings I cannot sees attacking me!" as he tries to ascertain, at least, the direction from which the assault comes.

IF Felix is freed from the Carpet of Adhesion, he will immediately take to the air (provided his Force Field is active - see Prime contingency above), fly up (say, 60 feet or so) out of reach of whatever-it-is-that-attacks-him, and (if he has remaining actions) check on the current status of the freed prisoners. If any of them are under attack (such as by the risen dead), Felix will blast the attacker(s) with his rifle (reasoning that these are regular animated dead and should not be immune to it):
Ion blast at whomever/whatever is attacking prisoners: strike -->1d20+2 = 21 ; damage 3d6 = 14 M.D.
Ion blast at whomever/whatever is attacking prisoners: strike -->1d20+2 = 18 ; damage 3d6 = 9 M.D.
Ion blast at whomever/whatever is attacking prisoners: strike -->1d20+2 = 4 ; damage 3d6 = 13 M.D.
Ion blast at whomever/whatever is attacking prisoners: strike -->1d20+2 = 20 ; damage 3d6 = 11 M.D.

In the event that the combat is resolved this round, Felix will check for and attend to any wounded with his remaining actions:

Wolf surveys the two different paths leading out of the basement with muted enjoyment. Well look who was right. Bastards didn't listen and now we don't have the people to explore both paths...You know they are still going to blame you. You agreed to leave john and the new guy upstairs. You told Saul to go back upstairs...ya I was tired of his whining and mopey attitude. I cant believe that these people are just so uppity about everything...Really, you cant understand why Saul was upset about you taking the wine?...Oh step off it. A couple bottles of wine won't hurt anyone. He was on such a high horse when I told him to go back up stairs. Looks like it's time to make the call...Oh goody I cant wait to see how you mess this one up...you know if you weren't me I would kill you.

Wolf quietly talks to Mierin, "I say we take one of the passes and radio the others to take the other one. North one looks like it's a little wider. Let's start there." Wolf keys his radio "Rocky, John, don't know if you can hear this but we have two passages down here. Me and Mierin are taking the north, need you guys to take the east." Wolf shakes his head slightly in irritation.

Wolf will wave Mierin to follow as he moves slowly and as quietly as possible through the north passage. Wolf will keep to the east side of the passage and will follow it.

Prowl-- 1d100 = 13/55% (Moving quietly through the passageway)
Streetwise-- 1d100 = 82/44% (Heading in the likely direction of where the ritual may be)

Slithn: Spd 15*5 = 75 yds/melee; 8 rounds to arrival.


Invincible armor regeneration for this round: 1d6 = 1 MDC

Stepping over the corpse of the woman he inadvertently killed, Vheld knows he has no time to feel pleased with himself. The Harvester’s invincible armor would regenerate given time, and like it or not his rune blade seemed to be the best tool for the job. Somewhat relieved to see Wakiza, if mildly concerned about the absence of Will, Vheld begins to see a way for their mission to move into the endgame. To do his part, the shifter must press the attack, and so he does with a will. At the same time, he tries to keep an eye on Harvester 3 to look for an opportune time to strike and disrupt the ritual.

Action 1: Attack Harvester 1 with his rune sword. 1d20+9 = 29 to strike, 6d6+3 = 29x2=58 MD.
Action 2: Attack Harvester 1 with his rune sword. 1d20+9 = 26 to strike, 6d6+3 = 25 MD.
Action 3: Attack Harvester 1 with his rune sword. 1d20+9 = 25 to strike, 6d6+3 = 21 MD.
Action 4: Attack Harvester 1 with his rune sword. 1d20+9 = 12 to strike, 6d6+3 = 21 MD.
Action 5: Attack Harvester 1 with his rune sword. 1d20+9 = 24 to strike, 6d6+3 = 30 MD.
Action 6: Attack Harvester 1 with his rune sword. 1d20+9 = 23 to strike, 6d6+3 = 26 MD.
Action 7: Attack Harvester 1 with his rune sword. 1d20+9 = 28 to strike, 6d6+3 = 33x2=66 MD.
Action 8: Attack Harvester 1 with his rune sword. 1d20+9 = 21 to strike, 6d6+3 = 26 MD.
Action 9: Attack Harvester 1 with his rune sword. 1d20+9 = 20 to strike, 6d6+3 = 22 MD.

Contingencies:
1) If Vheld’s invincible armor is depleted he will sacrifice an action to use his talisman again.
2) If the invincible armor on either Harvester drops and Vheld has a shot, he will sacrifice an action to cast lifeblast ((-15 PPE)). He will do this at least one to each Harvester if he has the opportunity, and multiple times if one of them starts an extended spell-casting. Harvester 3 will be prioritized over Harvester 1 if need be. See this post for effects.
3) If Harvester 1 is killed Vheld will move to attack Harvester 3 with his blade.

Auto-parries with staff (will not interrupt casting to defend): 1d20+13 = 25, 1d20+13 = 26, 1d20+13 = 19, 1d20+13 = 28, 1d20+13 = 19, 1d20+13 = 22, 1d20+13 = 27, 1d20+13 = 21, 1d20+13 = 32

Sil does what she can to protect Seymour, watch Vheld’s back, and attack the things menacing them. She will not do so at the expense of her own life, however- should the creatures become overwhelming she is prepared to shift to phantom form and rejoin the other minions. Similarly, if Seymour flees or retreats, Sil will follow up.

Action 1: Attack unknown 7 or 9, as dictated by whichever appears to be the biggest threat. 1d20+6 = 25 to strike, 3d6 = 7 MD.
Action 2: Attack unknown 7 or 9, as dictated by whichever appears to be the biggest threat. 1d20+6 = 23 to strike, 3d6 = 11 MD.
Action 3: Attack unknown 7 or 9, as dictated by whichever appears to be the biggest threat. 1d20+6 = 25 to strike, 3d6 = 9 MD.
Action 4: Attack unknown 7 or 9, as dictated by whichever appears to be the biggest threat. 1d20+6 = 15 to strike, 3d6 = 13 MD.
Action 5: Attack unknown 7 or 9, as dictated by whichever appears to be the biggest threat. 1d20+6 = 23 to strike, 3d6 = 15 MD.

Contingencies:
1) Reactivate invincible armor talisman if it is depleted.
2) Sacrifice an action to shift into phantom form if Sil is in serious danger of being killed, then retreat to the minions.
3) Follow Seymour if he flees the blood-things.

Auto-dodges: 1d20+6 = 15, 1d20+6 = 26, 1d20+6 = 15, 1d20+6 = 18, 1d20+6 = 25

Perception: 92% 1d100 = 53
JIC: 1d100 = 39 1d20 = 5

Mouser had to take a few moments to review it's files on the identified demonic creature, which at least told it what aspect of demonic it was dealing with, beyond the specifics of the one it had identified in particular. Given the robot's present armament and capabilities, Mouser decided it was far better off continuing to sneak about, where at all possible, rather than engage. The infernal sprite on it's own would be a difficult foe, for it to be coupled with some creature Mouser couldn't identify would certainly make it an exceedingly risky situation should the robot wind up in combat. Mouser might be fast, but most of it's weapons were relatively weak, some couldn't damage the sprite, and others could be completely nullified by magic. Coupled with the inability to find any friendly units, the Robot was soon regretting going through the rift.

Provided Mouser was left to it's own devices, the robot would continue to seek out any signs of friendlies, and try to sift through what it knew in order to perhaps find a way through the interference. The presence of the demonic suggested magic. That meant the machine might not be able to find any way through, but perhaps it's internal information on magic would provide some clues as to what to do about that. Thus, Mouser set to continuing to seek any signs of friendlies, try to avoid being spotted, and try to find some way to bypass the radio interference.

Contingency: If Mouser comes under attack, the robot will defend itself and attempt to withdraw, primarily focusing on the Infernal Sprite as it could fly and thus (presumably) was the larger threat of the two as far as preventing means of escape.

John shrinks down to a manageable size as he enters the inn, passing Saul at about 30 mph as Saul comes up the stairs. "Hi, Saul."

Where did Rocky go?!?

He gets to the bottom as Wolf is talking into his radio. "Hey, who are you talking to? I found a tunnel leading off from those collapsed stairs outside..."

John takes in the open door and two tunnels leading off into the darkness. "Oh, you found your own tunnels. I wonder if this one going east meets up with the one outside."

John stops for a long moment.

"Is Rocky supposed to be leading? I can't remember at this point."

"If we're going into these tunnels, we should get Rocky and Saul back down here. You sure you want me down this Eastern tunnel, or do you want me to come down the outside stairs? Maybe I should go with, uh, Zion and the rest of you stick together?"

**Rolls Held Over**

Paranoid Thought Text

Active Conditions: Night Vision 600', multi optics band.

Lexington Ruins Group

Wolf takes a single staggered step and steadies himself against the the rush of air as John zips next to him. I don't know if I will ever get used to that. The man sure is fast...Too fast for you to do anything about. Think about it he would smoke you in a fight...Sometimes I wish I could just have some peace in my own head...Not with me here.

John wrote:He gets to the bottom as Wolf is talking into his radio. "Hey, who are you talking to? I found a tunnel leading off from those collapsed stairs outside..."


Wolf gives a quiet chuckle, "I was calling you and Rocky. Is Zion still up there? Or has he shown his true colors yet? Anyway did you guys find what ever you were looking for outside?" Wolf Looks to the tunnel to the east. "Well if you want to get everyone else I can let you take the east tunnel to see if it leads back to the stairs you found. You are fast enough to summon us or get back to us once your exploration has been completed. As far as Rocky leading us...Well he was supposed to, but he seemed lost in his own thoughts so I just tried to get everyone moving. Not that it seems to have made much difference. Everyone seems content to do their own thing, present company excluded." Wolf nods to Mierin. "John, can you get everyone else down here. We will scout down the north tunnel. Have them catch up to us. I also need you to check out the east tunnel to confirm if it connects up with the set of stairs you located."
Wolf turns back to Mierin. "Let move down the tunnel to see what we are dealing with. This kind of underground labyrinth sounds like what Rocky saw in his vision thingy he did earlier." Wolf will slowly move into the north tunnel with Mierin.

Ronan scowls as the Murder Wrath before him draws blood, cutting through his silver skin. I am not used to weapons hurting me like this. What does this creature have. Ronan muses to himself amidst the flurry of blows. Unconcerned by the amassed worms on the wraith before him, Ronan continues his assault. As he feels the Harvester behind him shoot him in the back, he finds himself with multiple opponents.

Ronan first attempts to use his silver blade to disarm the Murder Wraith of it's own weapon, striking near the hilt with the intent to knock it from his grasp as he follows the disarm attempt with a horizontal slash with his lightblade. Regardless of his disarms effect, Ronan releases his silver blade and rears around, firing a silver shard from the same hand instinctually targeting the Harvester at a distance trying to entice it to keep coming closer, keeping his Lightblade up to parry another assault from the wraith.

What the bloody hell is happening to me? Ronan thinks as he sees the silver shard leap from his palm towards the Harvester. Rearing back around to return his focus to the one who can actually hurt him, Ronan reforms the silver blade and resumes his assault on the wraith.

Action 1: Skill Check | Disarm Murder Wraith's unimpressive but annoyingly effective weapon. [EP Critical]
Action 2: Horizontal Slash with Lightblade. Strike: 1d20+12 = 30 | DMG: 1d6*10 = 30 | Drop Silver Blade which evaporates before it hits the floor.

Contingency if Immobile/Stuck and MW falls
Should the Murder Wraith before him fall, Ronan will turn his attention to the Harvester behind him completely. If Ronan finds he is unable to move from his position to engage the Harvester, he will call for aid against what restrains him from Vheld while trying to break free. "Deuce! I'm immobile due some sort of magic!" Should he break free or be able to move freely, he will engage the Harvester with a furious passion. Should he remain stuck, he will launch several silver shards at the Harvester to encourage it to get closer. Come on, get closer, you filthy death mage. Ronan thinks.

Action 6: Turn, attempt to move (if unsuccessful, call for Vheld)
Action 7: Fire a silver dagger-like shard at the approaching Harvester. Strike: 1d20+11 = 31 | DMG: 3d6 = 8 M.D.C. (Silver)
Action 8: Fire a silver dagger-like shard at the approaching Harvester. Strike: 1d20+11 = 17 | DMG: 3d6 = 3 M.D.C. (Silver)

Contingency if not stuck and MW fall
Should the Murder Wraith before him fall, Ronan will turn his attention to the Harvester behind him completely. If Ronan has freedom of movement, he will simply charge the approaching Harvester and continue his assault (using the strike rolls of the initial post)

Suppress Fear
Enhanced Perception
This incredible psionic power augments the psychic's physical senses, enhancing his perception. This enhanced state of awareness sharpens all natural senses by 50%, and further enables the psychic to "filter" all of this extra sensory input in order to concentrate on one or a few specific things. While using this ability, the psychic will notice every detail around him down to the slightest motion, sound, scent, and shadow. He will further be likely to notice changes and inconsistencies that might reveal traps, illusions, feints, or tricks (including sleight-of-hand, etc.). The psionic power provides the psychic with a +3 to Perception, + I to strike, +2 to parry and dodge, and a +I0% to any skill that relies on any of the basic senses (such as Intelligence, Tracking, or certain Physical skills like Juggling or Prowl.

ROLLS HELD

John runs back upstairs. "Hi, Saul!"

He stops in front of Zion, then waits quietly until Saul reaches them.

"Mierin and Wolf found two tunnels that go East and North, respectively, downstairs. I also found a tunnel under those collapsed stairs to the Southeast. I think Zion should come with me down the East tunnel, and Saul go with the others to the North."

John looks around, "Have you seen Rocky? He was here like 30 seconds ago. We're suggesting he goes North. Underground."

John sticks his head out the inn door. "Rocky, where are you? We're going downstairs!"

He then goes downstairs and waits for the others to join up for a coordinated tunnel approach.

As John zips first downstairs and then back upstairs, Saul waits. This unit has no functional cohesion. If this were an actual ambush, we'd be easily taken advantage of. I must keep in mind our goal - as Mierin pointed out, we must stop the ritual to save as many lives as possible... no matter the cost.

John wrote:"Mierin and Wolf found two tunnels that go East and North, respectively, downstairs. I also found a tunnel under those collapsed stairs to the Southeast. I think Zion should come with me down the East tunnel, and Saul go with the others to the North."


We are leaving Rocky on his own. Saul keys on his radio, falling back on the radio protocols he learned as a member of the Dweomer militia. "Rocky, Saul. Unit is investigating tunnels terminating at basement. Possible connect at stairs, in your direction. Be advised you are currently solo. Over."

I don't like this at all. This is a very scattershot approach to investigating. It's going to get someone killed.

With a sigh, he returns to the the basement, and enters the tunnels with Mierin and Wolf. During my time in the Dweomer militia, we'd have proceeded as a group down this tunnel, in fire-and-maneuver formation. However, we appear to have an unclear leadership situation at present, so we have one leader down here calling orders and one leader upstairs investigating on his own.

"Let us waste no more time finding and stopping this ritual. I suggest we search one tunnel at a time, as a group, then circle back to the other one if need be." If Wolf agrees, Saul waits for the team to reconverge before he takes point, blending in with the shadows as he prowls down the tunnel, relying on his Sixth Sense to trigger if they approach something dangerous.

Prowl 60% Original post: 1d100 = 56 (From Shadow Meld; SUCCESS)


Wolf jumps several inches and lands in an abbreviated crouch when Saul speaks. Wolf slowly looks in the direction of the voice. "You scared the ever loving shit out of me. I think that's a good idea. Lets wait for the others now that we have a solid lead. Honestly I didn't think Saul or John would be so fast down the stairs." Wolf will look at the others slowly coming down the stairs. "Rocky still out there?" Wolf keys his radio, "Rocky we are going to need you down here. I'm sure we have a path leading to the ritual down here."
So sure are you?...It's just to get him down here, nothing more...you can afford to be wrong too many more times...I still haven't been wrong, technicly...You got lucky is all...Are you trying to kill me? Cause that's how it sounds...on the contrary I'm trying to keep you alive. I don't want my own existence to vanish even If I'm stuck up here in you head...you don't exist...don't I, then who are you arguing with? Wolf lets out a low, but audible, irritated groan.

Wolf will wait for the others before proceeding. Wolf will take a defensive position to watch the north tunnel. "Saul you want to watch the east tunnel while we wait?".

When everyone is in the tunnel. "Let head north first." Wolf will then lead the way into the north tunnel with the rest of the group in tow.


IF Rocky does not come down stairs
Wolf will radio him one last time. "Rocky we need you down here now. If you don't get down here, you will be up there with no support. I will not risk this mission for one person. So get down here or get left. Your choice."

Turning and looking back into the inn, Zion acknowledges Saul as he returns.


John wrote:"Mierin and Wolf found two tunnels that go East and North, respectively, downstairs. I also found a tunnel under those collapsed stairs to the Southeast. I think Zion should come with me down the East tunnel, and Saul go with the others to the North."

John looks around, "Have you seen Rocky? He was here like 30 seconds ago. We're suggesting he goes North. Underground."


"Rocky? Isn't that your name? Which one was he again? Sorry I can't always member peoples names. Dare faces are no problem, but names gives me a hard time." Zion looks around in an attempt to locate the missing person. As the other members make their way to the basement, Zion follows them down the stairs. He gathers with the rest of them. The rock man isn't named Rocky?! Well dat don't make no sense. It ain't easy either. More dam names to remember. Maybe da'll let me giv'em a nickname or sumting. Make it easier for I.

Saul wrote:"Let us waste no more time finding and stopping this ritual. I suggest we search one tunnel at a time, as a group, then circle back to the other one if need be."


Ya know Mon. I could put up a force field at one end while we search da tunnel. To make sure nutt'n makes it way behind us. I could even block da utter one here, also." Zion points to the other tunnel. "Yes, dare be strength in numbers. Besides, isn't it a tactic to divide and conquer? Don't know bout you but I and I ain't going to let us get conquered." Zion waits for the others to make a decision on the course of actions. If/when everyone enters the tunnel and if no one has objected to his plan, Zion will erect a TK Force field. (30 ISP, 60 minutes duration, 150 MD) at the entrance of the tunnel that they enter.

Action Four: Pick a target among the new zombies.
Action Five: Fire NG-505 at zombies, taking care to not fire too close to any allies. (Strike: 1d20+4 = 24 Nat 20!; Damage: 1d6*10 = 50+3= 106 M.D. to a 3' radius.)

Daphne is not pleased, she fires two bursts at the Unknown target on Lhaz before the gun is dry, while making her way back to her fighter. Daphne climbs in and closes the canopy, re-initializing the systems, and picking out a new target. Now that there is a butt load of zombies, Daphne shrugs and fires the anti-ship cannon at the now ambulatory dead, taking care to not hit her companions in the process.

Perception: 1d100 = 42 / 82% (+15% for either cybernetic hearing or vision if applicable)
JiC: 1d20 = 4 1d100 = 21

Conditions: Advanced Combat Awareness (All Opponents are -2 to strike Wakiza, -2 to dodge his attacks, and lose one attack per melee); Cloud Targeting Computers and Other Weapon Systems (negate any built-in bonuses and adds a -2 strike penalty with any modern or advanced weaponry) Cloud Sensors (If someone is in PA, Robot or a Vehicle); Combat Acrobatics. Every couple of minutes Wak shifts his MOE to thermal to see if he can spot anything invisible.
[*] Storm Rider Armor (BoM p. 47): 120 MDC MDC armor; Impervious to all forms of Elemental Magic, Lightning, and even ley line storms; Other types of energy do 1/2 damage; can hover and fly at 60 mph.

Group: Temple

Damn necromancers. Wak activates Storm Rider Armor from the TW function on his armor. Then he floats over to strike Harvester 1 on the opposite side of a Vheld. While floating and striking he makes a few comments over the radio to include Mouser. That necromancer by the alter is mind shattered. Mouser, get in the temple and find me.” With a cold rage behind his voice he says over the radio, Will is down with a hole through his chest! And there is another necromancy with two zombies inside a TK force field around the corner. Well for as long as it lasts.

Wak is glancing to the side to see if the necro has freed himself. This round Wak is focused on a straightforward sword fight and relaying what has occurred over the radio.

APM: 8
Init: 1d20+11 = 21

Don't forget Wak's Advanced Combat Awareness if the Juicers shoot at him! And that he can parry energy blasts with Derilian at a -6.

Action 1: Activates Storm Rider Armor (-30 ppe) from his armor
Action 2: While on the radio flies behind Harvester 1 and striking with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 27 Damage: 10d6+4 = 46
Action 3: While on the radio Strikes Harvester 1 with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 20 Damage: 10d6+4 = 32
Action 4: While on the radio Strikes Harvester 1 with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 27 Damage: 10d6+4 = 42
Action 5: While on the radio Strikes Harvester 1 with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 28 Damage: 10d6+4 = 39
Action 6: While on the radio Strikes Harvester 1 with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 34 CRIT Damage: 10d6+4 = 37x2= 74 MD
Action 7: While on the radio Strikes Harvester 1 with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 33 Damage: 10d6+4 = 39
Action 8: While on the radio Strikes Harvester 1 with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 28 Damage: 10d6+4 = 44

Can parry energy blasts with Derilian at a -6
Auto-dodge against 2 undead juicers if they escape FF: 1d20+11 = 12 1d20+11 = 24 1d20+11 = 21 1d20+11 = 23 1d20+11 = 12 1d20+11 = 19 1d20+11 = 23 1d20+11 = 17

ROLLS HELD

John holds his helmet to his ear, listening to Rocky like he's inside a sea shell. Then he turns the helmet, and talks into it like it's a coconut. "I can solidly fill the hallway behind the group, without leaving a rear guard. We won't be any more surprised by enemies than if I sat in the hall and we won't split our forces."

When Zion mentions a forcefield, John grows to fill the tunnel, blocking it solid for multiple feet. "Leaving a forcefield seems redundant, but it's your call. You may want to save your magic."

John then takes a moment to specifically reach out with his radar senses as far down each hallway as he can.

"Does anyone have sound amplification? Can anyone hear anything? Smell anything?"

Unknowns 7 & 9 smash bloody red fists against Seymour’s force field repeatedly, causing it to shimmer as a shower of blood falls to the stone tiles around him.

Seymour does his best to hide his terror. {{Save vs HF 1d20+4 = 8}} ”What the fuck?? I am fighting walking blood puddles!! I need to get outta here.” He does his best to drop and roll. His main concern is escaping. ”I need to go NOW!!” Using all his martial skills, he does his best to get away from the “things” beating on him. With a shoulder block, or body check, Seymour slams himself against unknown 7 and then again off unknown 9. ”I need room to move.” As soon as the two uglies are at least a step away, Seymour leaps for the wall, then with a crouching motion as he hits the wall, he leaps across the hall to the far wall. ”Thank the maker I’m a rat!! It is almost instinct to climb like this.” He lets a grin slip out ”Not to mention, FUN!!” Using that wall as a springboard, Seymour launches himself at the bad guy fighting with Vheld. As he connects, he twists his body. With a litle muscle and some torgue, Seymour attempts to knock the bad guy into a wall with some force by using the leap to power his kick.

Current Mission Goals
  • Recruit help from The True Federation
  • Recruit help from Magestar
  • Recruit help from MercTown (MARS)
  • Recruit help from Psyscape
  • Recruit help from Dweomer
  • Recruit help from Stormspire
  • Investigate rumors of a band of demons in the area.
  • In three separate locations within Soulharvest, rituals will be conducted simultaneously which, when complete, will strengthen Nxla as he manifests on Earth:
    • The three rituals will be conducted at night (on either June 4th or 5th, nobody knows which as that info has been compartmentalized).
      • The first location is in a remote meadow within Soulharvest, but nearer the ruins of Lexington.
      • The second location is in the Harvesters' original temple deep in the Soulharvest forest.
      • The third location is among the ruins of Old Pilgrim Road on the outskirts of the ruins of Lexington itself.

Location: in the wilderness South of Stormspire & East-Northeast of Dunscon; perhaps an hour from the region/forest known as Soulharvest

Order of Battle
Mouser (not yet arrived)
Ray the Robot (Lahz's; NE-ATRV)
William (Roughnecks; NE-ATRV)
Wakiza (Roughnecks; NE-ATRV)
Vheld (Spooks; NE-ATRV)

----Bel'Dar (Vheld's; NE-ATRV)
Ronan (Spooks; Cargonaut)
Seymour (Spooks; Cargonaut)

Wakiza taps the cerulean gem on his armor activating the storm rider feature, and floats over to join Vheld in his rune sword assault on Harvester 1. Vheld presses the attack against Harvester 1, triggering his talisman once more as his magics had been negated, and though his magic defenses absorb a few bursts of weapons fire from the Harvester, he manages to slay the necromancer with his rune weapon. (No instructions given to minions, so no actions taken. See Butcher’s Bill--your conditions changed last round.) Mouser stays hidden and determines that there are the tracks of many humanoids in the dirt around this huge rock. Further, he conjectures that technology-based EM transmissions are being jammed by arcane means. Ronan figures the weapon held by the Murder Wraith must be of an unknown nature as it was quite effective at hurting him. Realizing he’s been shot in the back, he returns a blast to dissuade further action only to see Vheld laying into his target with a fancy-looking sword. Unconcerned by the amassed worms on the wraith before him, Ronan refocuses on his own problem; hacking and slashing at the writhing mass covering the Murder Wraith. His disarming of the undead only causes it to beat upon him bodily with hammer-like blows, but by the end of their flurried exchange, he’s managed to hack away the writhing protection enjoyed by the undead thing. Seymour does his best to drop and roll. With a shoulder block, or body check, Seymour slams himself against unknown 7 and then again off unknown 9. Neither impact has any discernible effect upon the walking heaps of blood and gore. It’s like slamming into a bag of water, all the kinetic energy from his body is simply absorbed by the masses. Seymour leaps for the Western wall and uses it to launch in Vheld’s direction, but comes up short by the sight of a huge, staring, tyrannical, floating eye creature looming between them. The shambling sacks of blood pursue him throughout his actions, landing blows when able. While Wakiza and Vheld are focused on murdering Harvester 1, Harvester 2 and his Murder Wraith bodyguards cross the temple's main chamber towards the archway. The necromancer directs one of his bodyguards to slaughter one of the group of captives, and Unknown 8 sloshes towards the remaining group. En route to the archway, a number of clouds of smoke are created, obfuscating the area around the arch, and the disabling enchantment in front of it vanishes.

Mierin is a bit surprised when the exploration of the store room reveals a couple of tunnels going who knows where to who knows what. Maybe this wasn't a complete waste of time after all' However, when Wolf starts to say the two of them should explore to the north and the remainder of the group should go east, Mierin starts to shake her head and mention how that was NOT a good idea when John comes down and Wolf tells him about the tunnels. Luckily, the newcomer, Zion and Saul register their concerns at the idea of splitting up, so Mierin doesn't have to talk some sense into Wolf again. She nods at Zion's idea of a forcefield. ”That's a good idea. We can control who enters the tunnel after us.” Mierin shrugs at John, "That's another option. As long as we keep anyone from creeping up on us from behind, I'm good."

"Does anyone have sound amplification? Can anyone hear anything? Smell anything?"


Mierin shakes her head to indicate she did not have sound or scent amplification. She nods at Saul's comment that they shouldn't waste any time and says, ”Let's get going then.” Mierin then follows Saul, keeping an eye out for signs of trouble as they head along the tunnel.

Perception: 1d100 = 72 / 82% (+15% for either cybernetic hearing or vision if applicable)
JiC: 1d20 = 4 1d100 = 1

Conditions: Advanced Combat Awareness (All Opponents are -2 to strike Wakiza, -2 to dodge his attacks, and lose one attack per melee); Cloud Targeting Computers and Other Weapon Systems (negate any built-in bonuses and adds a -2 strike penalty with any modern or advanced weaponry) Cloud Sensors (If someone is in PA, Robot or a Vehicle); Combat Acrobatics. Every couple of minutes Wak shifts his MOE to thermal to see if he can spot anything invisible.
[*] Storm Rider Armor (BoM p. 47): 120 MDC MDC armor; Impervious to all forms of Elemental Magic, Lightning, and even ley line storms; Other types of energy do 1/2 damage; can hover and fly at 60 mph.

Group: Temple

Wak sees the necro and two zombies may be escaping and only hesitates for a split second. He is not to far gone to realize he is still around to protect others and he thinks, besides Will would have wanted me to stop more killing rather than chase his killers. He flies to the blood bag butchering the captives and starts to wail on it with Derilian. He yells on comms, "The last necro and his two zombies are escaping through that smoke!" Once the blood bag goes down he will try to move and stop them from escaping and use the rest of his blows on the one he encounters first. He will not go through the doorway if they are disappearing.

APM: 8
Init: 1d20+11 = 25

Don't forget Wak's Advanced Combat Awareness if the Juicers shoot at him! And that he can parry energy blasts with Derilian at a -6.

Action 1: While on the radio flies to the blood thing and strikes with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 24 Damage: 10d6+4 = 37
Action 2: Strikes with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 33 Damage: 10d6+4 = 43
Action 3: Strikes with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 23 Damage: 10d6+4 = 38
Action 4: Strikes with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 26 Damage: 10d6+4 = 33
Action 5: Strikes with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 35 CRIT Damage: 10d6+4 = 44 x2= 88 MD
Action 6: Strikes with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 31 Damage: 10d6+4 = 33
Action 7: Strikes with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 18 Damage: 10d6+4 = 43
Action 8: Strikes with Derilian. Strike: 1d20+16 = 20 Damage: 10d6+4 = 37

Can parry energy blasts with Derilian at a -6
Auto-dodge against 2 undead juicers if they escape FF: 1d20+11 = 23 1d20+11 = 25 1d20+11 = 15 1d20+11 = 14 1d20+11 = 28 1d20+11 = 29 1d20+11 = 21 1d20+11 = 13
Parry: 1d20+24 = 32 1d20+24 = 41 1d20+24 = 42 1d20+24 = 37 1d20+24 = 38 1d20+24 = 41 1d20+24 = 41 1d20+24 = 33

Contingency: If Storm Rider Armor goes down he will burn an action to activate another Storm Rider Armor from his armor.

Contingency 2:

Current Mission Goals
  • Recruit help from The True Federation
  • Recruit help from Magestar
  • Recruit help from MercTown (MARS)
  • Recruit help from Psyscape
  • Recruit help from Dweomer
  • Recruit help from Stormspire
  • Investigate rumors of a band of demons in the area.
  • In three separate locations within Soulharvest, rituals will be conducted simultaneously which, when complete, will strengthen Nxla as he manifests on Earth:
    • The three rituals will be conducted at night (on either June 4th or 5th, nobody knows which as that info has been compartmentalized).
      • The first location is in a remote meadow within Soulharvest, but nearer the ruins of Lexington.
      • The second location is in the Harvesters' original temple deep in the Soulharvest forest.
      • The third location is among the ruins of Old Pilgrim Road on the outskirts of the ruins of Lexington itself.

Time: 2022

Order of Battle
Rocky (MARS; NG-XF17 Ironwing)
--T-42 (MARS; driving QV-119 Lynx Hover Jeep)
Saul (MARS; QV-119 Lynx Hover Jeep)
Wolf Whitaker (Roughnecks; RH-1001A Appaloosa Light Robot Horse)
Mierin (Spooks; MI-3000 Firefly Hovercycle)
John (Roughnecks; afoot)
Zion (MARS)

After a great deal of back and forth communication and running to and fro, Wolf, Mierin, and Zion follow Saul as he moves slowly and as quietly through the north passage. Zion erects a telekinetic force field blocking the entrance behind them as they proceed up the northern passage. Shortly after erecting the force field, the group slinks North up the passage. They quickly find reason to groan as path opens up in numerous directions. They all largely appear to be similar, save for the the branch to the Northeast whose architecture and materials appear to be of a more advanced nature as there appear to be polished tiles and stairs present in that direction as opposed to the rough-hewn rock walls, loose rock, and packed dirt of the tunnels in which they stand.

Rocky refuses the group's invitation, and persists in his individual pursuit. Continuing a little further to the Northeast, he faces a similar conundrum to that of the party below ground: he many choices of direction to travel. He still senses the supernatural evil is somewhere to the Northeast, but he's it's definitely closer. One thing catches his eye, however: there's a subterranean stairwell to to the Southeast of his current position which is nestled between the crumbling walls of the ruins.
