*GM Note: Session from July 3rd 2017
After searching the store room and what’s left of the Serf’s bodies. Kamanda and Avagadro haven’t found anything salvageable other than the “pig” crate. They find another weapon in it plus a couple of belts of ammo for it. Which makes Wyke happy knowing that he has more ammo for his “pig”. While the toxic goo slowly spreads on the floor. Our heroes decide to head south from this room.
The adjoining room is empty with a seat and some inactive screens an exit to the west, south and east. There is an inactive spiderbot by the door and it looks like it’s been damaged. Avagadro uses his mutation to sense minds in the area and picks up thoughts to the west, nothing to the east or south.
They decide to explore the southern area first and discover: several smaller rooms which could be a generator room, and also an elevator shaft going down, and also a strange room with canisters. Kamanda asks Brenda what kind of room is this and she tells him that it’s a “battery room”.
It’s a quick glance of each room making sure there is nothing that might follow them later and cause trouble and taking notes that they should come back and give this battery room a closer inspection once they “cleared” out this complex.
They head west and once the door opens they discover Squeekers roaming about and it’s combat time once again kids! The mutant rats attack with sonic blasts, as Kamanda and Avagadro charge forward while Wyke hangs back at an intersection. He wants to make sure nothing else comes charging at them. Brenda holds her attack since she cannot get a clear shot off in this narrow corridor as well.
The Squeekers are dealt with quickly and efficiently and our heroes decide to explore the intersection.
Here Be Squeekers
To the north there appears to be a cafeteria with plates and food on the table, vending machines and a sink as well. Avagadro presses a button on a device and it activates, dispensing food in the form of little plastic containers; air tight and seemingly fresh food. Avagadro fills his pockets once again with items from the vending machine, as Kamanda does a quick scan and discovers the letters: M-E-S-S-H-A-L-L on the wall.
They leave the chamber and go directly south. Wyke is still minding the narrow corridor with his “Pig” ready to chew up anything that might head their way.
Mess of the Ancients
To the south it opens up int a room with a door, they discover that this is a brig area, like the one on the level above and decide to see what they can find in here. In the last room they find an Orlen named “Orthic & Petek” whose been recently captured. He doesn’t know how he got here all he knows is that he was wandering his home and then a shimmering light was around him and the next thing he knows he is on a platform surrounded by Serfs. They had summoned him to pease “Tybak, but whoever this Tybak is she is not pleasent. Orthic & Petek has only been here for a couple of days but the Serfs seem to be constantly feeding him food.
Avagadro, Wyke, and Kamanda discuss with each other on what to do with “Opie” and tell him that they will return once they can find out who Tybak is. They tell Opie that they have dealt with several of the Serfs in the complex and since they don’t know how many are left it’s best that he remains in his cell for now (also they don’t know if they can trust him or not).
They leave Opie in the cell and promise him that they will be back.
An Orlen in A Cell
Our heroes regroup and discuss their next course of action. Kamanda wants to backtrack and explore the other rooms they bypassed just to be on the safe side. Even though Avagadro hasn’t sense any thoughts it still might be a good idea to do so. So they head on back to shaft where they entered the second level from and decide to explore the chamber just to the south of it. Discovering a couple of bunks and then a room where it can only be opened with a blue card.
As the door opens they are greeted by cool air and notice several tanks in the room. Kamanda inquires what is this room and Brenda tells him that it’s Cryogenics. Avagadro scampers about and notices that there is a “human meat” in one of the tanks. A woman is sleeping in one of the capsules and they explore around to discover the three other capsules are empty.
Each capsule has a name: John Doe, John Smith, John Jones, & Jane Dough. Wyke seems to think that maybe this is a very important room and that they shouldn’t wake the ancients and leave. Kamanda thinks it’s also a good idea to leave and maybe they can come back to this room and inspect it in full detail later. Avagadro notices there’s a bunk room right across the hall and suggest maybe they should rest up for a bit; since taking damage from Serfs, the grenade fragments (which Kamanda fumbled throwing) and the Squeekers encounter Wyke and Kamanda agree.
And since Brenda FourOneOne is a mechanical being that she doesn’t require sleep and guard the door as they recuperate. They tend to their wounds, eat some grub and hopefully sack out for the duration.
The Cold Room
After a good rest our heroes inspect their gear, eat a quick meal supplied by Avagadro and those air tight containers of food stuff. They are greeted by Brenda at the door and discover a body of a serf lying in the corridor. It had wandered in from the south and she had dealt with it.
With renewed vim and vinegar our heroes begin to continue on exploring the complex. Discovering a few empty chambers (I won’t go into much detail here) and making their way to the west end where Avagadro picks up many thoughts.
Kamanda, Avagadro, Wyke and Brenda discuss what they are going to do, but first they have to scout to see what is up and when they do they spot Serf’s bowing and before a one huge-ass spider!
Level 2 Big Boss
This is Tybak a huge mutated crab spider that is being worshipped and fed by the Serfs. And it’s one big boss battle that our heroes will never forget! Wyke sets up elevated from Avagadro and Kamada and lets off a few rounds of the Pig. Brenda charges the Serfs and Kamanda goes full X-Men powers on Tybak.
The battle rages hard and each side takes some serious wounds but eventually the Serfs and Tybak have been brought down. Our heroes catch their breath before discussing their next course of action.
End of Session.
