*Game Note: Session from Saturday, January 15th, 2018
In our previous session our heroes ; Wyke, Kamanda, Avagadro, and Brenda fought there way through a huge hoard of plague zombies. They decided to have a quick rest, enjoy a quick meal before continuing on exploring the remain rooms of the “lost” section of the base. Brenda informs them that when a “plague” occurred there was a decision to seal off this part of the base.
Wyke is impressed with his new armour and is still working out the kinks in it. Avagadro is sniffing around the small room and inspecting things here and there but finding nothing of use for him.
Kamanda tells the others to hold back as hd scouts out the hanger bay and notices the huge crater in the floor and a wooden bridge that spans it. He also does a quick check check to the south to see a Kep plant moving like an ungodly spider towards him. Kamanda backs up into the room and waits for the creature to appear in front of the door.
He blasts the plant creature apart before it can get an attack in. But the sound of combat alerts the plague zombies in the huge bay and they come charging into the fray. Kamanda steps into the bay, Avagadro scampers past him and heads to the bridge. He stands there taunting the Plague Zombies and waits for all three of them are on the bridge running towards him and that’s when he uses his claws to cut the bridge and the plague zombies fall into the pit.
Kamanda then using his fire starter ability proceeds to burn them up leaving no trace of them behind. With the bridge destroyed, our heroes make there way southward to see what else the can find. Avagadro looks for more, but there is none to be seen.
Kamanda sees a door to the south and goes to it while Avagadro peers down a dark hallway and is surprised to see two plague zombies coming out of the shadows towards him. He springs into action and slash with claws and goes in for a bite, and then he realizes his mistake with the bite as his teeth sinks into one and his mouth starts burning from the brown gooey substance off the creature.
The Plague Zombies are dealt with quickly but Avagadro still feels the burn of the goo until he finally clears it off.
With Brenda FourOneOne armed with a slug thrower and following behind them, they release that Wyke isn’t with them. He’s still in the chamber before the bay since his armour is in fact to big to fit through.
So not wanting to get out of this new armour, he decides to rip the door from the hinges and expand the opening a bit so that he can finally enter into the bay. And once the party is regrouped once again they decide to explore the final two areas in the bay area.
In the south west corner room they discover Zenith’s growing and before it even has a chance to react, Wyke is on them like a hot knife through butter. With lasers blasting and his metallic fists bashing he turns one Zeenth into a pulpy salad.
Kamanda keeping his distance and using a laser pistol to take out another one and the third one is done as well before they even have a chance to “pollenate” he area. With this room cleared they check the other. Avagadro figures these walking salads wouldn’t be too good for his digestive system and leaves them alone.
The look to the east and see a narrow corridor with a secured lock. Kamanda decides to have a look to see what is beyond and when he uses his “white card” the door opens and reveals a huge “egg” with Serfs around it kneeling. The Serfs seem to be in prayer and chanting as well and Kamanda closes the door quickly, hoping they are to deep in prayer that they aren’t noticed. Kamanda remarks of a greenish glow coming from the “egg”.
They discuss their plan of attack, since the hallway leading to the chamber is too narrow for Wyke’s armour he opts to see what other way in he could get in and searches around. Since Avagadro didn’t sense their minds, there must be something in the chamber that is shielding their detection.
Wake had discovered a breach into the room that will give him a vantage point to fire into the chamber and maybe pick off one or two. But, he doesn’t know about that huge object they seem to be worshipping. Kamanda tells him not to hit it, since it seems it could be some sort of explosive device on a grander scale than the torc grenades they have in their possession.
So they get ready to charge into the room, after designating who should attack what Serf in the room. The battle is swift and brutal and our heroes have dealt with the skill of a slightly drunk surgeon. The Serfs didn’t even know what hit them.
With minimal damage to our heroes they celebrate their victory since they have effectively cleared the last room of the complex they are in. Though with the amount of Serfs discovered in this complex they didn’t find “The General” at all.
Inspecting the huge missile they find that it’s empty and only a glowing cube with a green hologram about it where the “warhead” should be. So, it seems the General fled the complex with the “warhead”.
Our heroes go into the hangar pay to look at the alien craft in it. Brenda FourOneOne informs them all of the Canopus Plague that happened when a strange craft was discovered and it’s occupants where quarantined. They decide not to explore the strange ship and they decide what should they do next.
