It's the end of the world, as we know it...

Post by Stoic »

After a pause that seems to take forever, the ley line begins to flicker. It’s subtle at first, but after a minute or two it’s full out agitated, like a big blue whip cracking. A dozen or two tendrils of electric light, with a pink tinge, curiously, shoot out from the ley line, and when the tendrils return, they leave a figure in their place. There are roughly twenty figures standing before you, a wide assortment of genders and races, the only thing in common is that they all appear to be physically fit, and are holding psi weapons in hand. You see a giant with four psi-blades, one for each hand, a frogman, holding a glowing pink psi-trident, his big bulbous eyes scanning the immediate area, A cyberhorseman, holding a massive two handed psi axe, and then, there is one that is clearly out of place. A short, plump African American woman with a shaved head. Something about her just radiates peace, and you instantly feel inclined to want to make her like you. She is wearing a simple gray robe, and what appear to be sandals. She looks to your party, and smiles warmly. She is just about to speak when all hell breaks loose. Psychics and Spellcasters feel it, but even those who are not adept in the arcane can hear it. It sounds like the world breaking in half, and as soon as the noise mercifully ends, the sky turns a dark red, and is marred by a strange alien assortment of celestial objects, including at least three moons that you can see. The gray robed woman starts to scream.
OOC Comments
Just kind of open roleplay here. How does your character react to these events?

Interlude Opportunity: Name a time your character faced a strange event, and how they got through it. After doing so, take a Benny.

Just going to let this post marinate for a bit, then we’ll get to the next part. Try to keep it to dialogue, no combat type actions just yet.

Alison’s heart rends along with the world.

”No...” she whispers as the alien moons invade the sky.

Fort Detroit/Wilds/Ley line
Afternoon
Round 0

Sig tensed as a group of well-armed individuals emerged from the ley line, armed with psi-weapons. And that robed woman was awfully suspicious.

Then the world seemed to break, and an ear-splitting shriek rent the air. Sig cringed, flicking on his armor’s noise suppressants to save his hearing. He stared at the blood red sky, filled with three moons and alien celestial objects. What the hell was happening?

Sig hadn’t seen anything like this since Gloomtown, when that necromancer had nearly wiped the town out of existence with an annihilation wave.

“What is this?” Sig called out to the magic experts in the party. “And who are you?” he asked the new arrivals.

This is probably an open rift and we are seeing the other side, assuming we were not swept through. However, either way, the sudden change is going to be overwhelming to an Eco-wizard.

Serival immediately starts to evaluate the new arrivals--in particular, the short woman with the gray robes, who is most likely the leader. However, his musings are cut short, hard, as the world shatters around them. The D'norr suddenly feels a massive wave of arcane energy being funneled at him through his link with Glass.

Nggh.... Like that time I fell in the selkie's pool in the Far Lands.... How'd I get out of that? Right, just accepted it, drew it in, even though it felt like dying.... Wound up breathing water for a week, but I lived.... Instead of trying to resist the crushing wave of magic, he opens himself to it, body and soul, and suddenly, the pressure sort of... pops. He finds himself attuned to the magic in a way he'd never been before. He looks around again, as the landscape without is as altered as his internal self.

"Well, this is... unexpected.

Before Xiang can call dibs on the big one (ya know, if they're hostile...), the world tears itself a new one. Despite being from a place stuck halfway between here and some hell dimension, Xiang is still quite put out by the shockwaves of mystic energy and sound. His ears flatten and his stance gets lowers and he glares about for the cause.

With his tail twitching in obvious irritation, he stops the low growling he'd unconsciously been doing to ask, Anyone have a clue what the <tone and context suggest vulgarities in Mayan> is going on?"

Danny’s last mission
The war had gone... Well it had gone about as bad as anyone couLd have expected. The resolve of the CS forces were unexpected to say the least. In the last days, Danny came into the General’s war tent and found it empty exept for a note. Victoria had summoned him. It read: With secret power, now comes the hour... I’ll find a way. The grackle swore under his breath, “Frack...” This was worse than him getting chewed out for posing for some pics with Tawdry and Tale... Much worse. The light in the tent had been extinguished and he appeared to be alone. But the hairs on his neck told him otherwise.

He whispered, “Victoria? Are you there?” The command tent was in shambles. Tables knocked over and the usual furs and arcane lanterns strewn all over the place. Even the large battle map that normally hung on the wall was burnt, smoldering and curling as a fire slowly overcame its protective laquer. The grackle’s eyes narrowed as he surveyed the room, he felt someone near even though he could not see them in the truest sense. He whispered again, “Victoria?”

A hand touched his and his commanding officer appeared out of nowhere. An invisibility spell... What game is she playing? We need to get out of here before the CS raize this position... His thoughts were cut off as she feverishly spoke.

Her eyes were blood shot, and dried spittle caked her lips, “Daniel... I found it, I found him... He was alone in the dark, but I found our savior... We must get to her, this nexus.” She gestured to the most northern part of the map that had yet to burn. “Hurry Daniel, if we must save everyone we must be quick.”

His CO had issued an order and Danny snapped too hoisting his rifle and pack ready to follow her to the ends if need be. However, as the two departed the tent he could not help but wonder She had already unleashed the Deamonix... What more horrors will she unleash now?

North of Tolkien, the layline’s criscrossed forming a nexus. Danny had just finished picking off the last CS wilderness scout patrolling the area with his particle beam rifle. He growled softly as the last headless body hit the ground, “Ok. General, the path is clear. We should move.” Carefully he lead the two up a path to the rolling hill under the nexus.

General Victoria Geist’s eyes were jet black by this time. Her voice sounded strained as if two people were simultaneously talking. “Thank you Daniel. We thank you. Soon the legendary spells will be at our grasp and the Coalition will be turned at last...” The nexus erupted in a flash of fiery blue energy and Danny found himself flung back a few dozen feet away from Victoria. A portal opened and a dark hand, larger than a house drew forth grabbing Victoria Geist. She screamed as the shadowy finger like tendrils enveloped her.

Danny could see a strange moon in the portal accompanied by a landscape of tormented shadow and barren rock. ”Nyxla thanks you Grackle. Haha.” Danny pulled his rifle into firing position as the creature’s fingers tightened around Victoria Giest. “No, let her go you-“ He was too late. The hand pulled Victoria Geist through and then the portal closed leaving Danny looking up in abject horror.

Behind him an old centaur coughed. He had a psi pike gripped him hands. His hoof stomped the ground near Danny. The centaur seemed to take pity on Danny behind his gruff exterior. The centaur’s voice was like coarse gravel, “On your feet Grackle. Nyxla has claimed another soul. I suggest you find yourself another path. One... One without such horrors. Leave the fighting to those who protect Psyscape.” Still stunned Danny watched the centaur gallop away wondering what Nyxla was, and where psyscape was. The newest centerfold for Tawdry and Tail vowed under his breath, “I’ll get you back CO... I’ll find you.” Sadly it was a promise he could never keep.
Shocked by the memory of his last days in the war Danny leveled his spirit bow and particle beam rifle not at the people who arrived but at the portal itself. Whatever his mind might think of such a strange surrounding, his body reacted reflexively as it sensed a threat. He looked at Sig as he heard the scream. It sounds just like Victoria..., “Brother, whatever comes out we have to push it back! In the last days of the war I... There was a portal, something came through and took my commanding officer.”

Sig looked over at Danny, noting his fellow Grackle looked a little pale. He nodded reassuringly. “No one’s getting taken,” he promised. “Not today.” He adjusted his grip on Winter’s Heart, aiming his plasma ejector with his tail.

A tall slender mutant cat woman (she has the markings of a cheetah, for those familiar) nimbly bounds over to the woman in the gray robe. She puts her hands under the womans arms just a moment before she passes out, mercilessly quiet. (Those with arcana detection noticed the psionic energy coming from the cheetah woman just before the woman in the gray robe fainted)

She tenderly lays her down and then turns her attention to the group. The rest of the warriors are holding their positions as the cheetah woman narrows her eyes a bit, and takes a good sniff at the SET. She seems content, until she gets to Allison. You see her tail flicker back and forth a few moments, before she nods. The Warriors spread out, making a protective circle around everyone, as the Cheetah woman's psi-blade vanishes, and she walks forward a few steps.

"I am Zatanya, of Psy-Scape. We preserved ourselves in this ley line for 23 years, because we knew we would be needed at this point. Mary she nods toward the peacefully sleeping woman predicted that we would be needed at this moment. Please, tell me who you are, and, if you may know, what is the current situation? Do you know of any increase in arcane activities? Any recent rise of demonic figures?[/i]

Doc does his best to shield the boy, then realizing that he is likely to be suffering under the psychic surge that often accomodates the nearness to the leylines, he opts to inject his subject with a sedative.

The sedative is derived from chemical formulas used in Juicers but is strictly refined to induce euphoria.

Once his patient is stable, Doc takes the young man to the mobile med unit in the vehicles and connects the young boy for observation.

He then rejoins the team in the circle of psyscape warriors.

A tall slender mutant cat woman (she has the markings of a cheetah, for those familiar) nimbly bounds over to the woman in the gray robe. She puts her hands under the womans arms just a moment before she passes out, mercilessly quiet. (Those with arcana detection noticed the psionic energy coming from the cheetah woman just before the woman in the gray robe fainted)

She tenderly lays her down and then turns her attention to the group. The rest of the warriors are holding their positions as the cheetah woman narrows her eyes a bit, and takes a good sniff at the SET. She seems content, until she gets to Allison. You see her tail flicker back and forth a few moments, before she nods. The Warriors spread out, making a protective circle around everyone, as the Cheetah woman's psi-blade vanishes, and she walks forward a few steps.

"I am Zatanya, of Psy-Scape. We preserved ourselves in this ley line for 23 years, because we knew we would be needed at this point. Mary she nods toward the peacefully sleeping woman predicted that we would be needed at this moment. Please, tell me who you are, and, if you may know, what is the current situation? Do you know of any increase in arcane activities? Any recent rise of demonic figures?"
Khar-Loez activates his headband, so that everyone can understand what he says, and then replies, "We are members of the Tomorrow Legion, we are currently on a rescue mission involving this child, but we were sent to this area because there is a report of increased demonic activity nearby. If you will accompany us back to the area base, perhaps they can brief you more thoroughly."

Persuasion is not his forte, so hopefully what he is saying is persuasive enough without a pleasant personality behind it.

Fort Detroit/Wilds/Ley line
Afternoon
Round 0

The new arrivals didn’t seem hostile, and appeared to be from friendly-ish territory. Khaer-loez explained who they were.

Sig lowered his weapons and approached, a small halo of the ley line energy seeming to avoid sparking around him. “She gonna be okay?” The big grackle nodded to the unconscious woman. “You have wounded you need tending to? Food or anything you need? If you’ve really been in there that long, I know I’d be starvin’. We gotta get this boy back to base with his family and the docs. We’d be happy to give you a ride and talk about what’s next. The folks at the base are more knowledgeable about the demons and such around here. We just arrived yesterday.”

Adventure Card:

  • Ace: Play instead of rolling to make a trait test with a single automatic raise.
  • Turncoat: Your hero somehow convinces or bribes a minor foe to perform a small favor—such as helping the hero escape, revealing the location of the “boss,” etc.
