On Hiatus

Well gents, unfortunately do to my military commitments, I'm going to have to place the game on hiatus, as I'm unable to keep up. My work days are averaging 18-20 hours a day, and things don't look as though they're going to slow down anytime soon. I've enjoyed talking with you guys, reading your posts, and seeing you interact with each other. It's been fun, and I want to give the game another shot, when I return from Iraq. Until then, you can still shoot me emails, but I may take me a while to get back to you. Stay Safe.

Fire In the Sky

It's been several days since you heard reports of a meteorite shower near the outskirts of the city. As far as the authorities are concerned, it was nothing more than a routine astrological event, and other than piquing the interest of local astronomers, it really didn't attach to much attention. But, something isn't quite sitting right with you, and you've decided to check out the area for yourselves.

The area around the where several of the meteorites "burned up" is a sparsely populated rural area near Jonesville. Jonesville is a small town with a population of around 5,000 people. The area's largest employers are a small electronics firm, and several large dairy farms. Most of the population works at the Genesis Electronics, or on one of the dairy farms. If anyone decides to stay in town, there are two hotels in town, and a small bed and breakfast. Things are pretty quiet in town, and a stranger asking questions will definitely be noticed by the Sheriff, or one of his seven deputies. While their not rude, they'll keep an eye on anyone who stands out from the norm.

You guys need to let me know how you plan to go about getting to the town, and what you plan to do once you get there. I'll talk to you all in a few weeks. Until then, have fun, and stay safe.

Down Time

While I'm out playing in the woods, for my favorite uncle, you guys should feel free to work out what you're doing, and how you want to go about doing it. I'll also be posting your updated character sheets, once I read your replies.

A Gathering of Warriors

Thunderbolt waited atop the pile of metal scrap at the Empire City – Westside Wreck’s Junkyard. This place was where it all started for him. Memories of that rainy night almost a year ago, flooded his thoughts. The night when he and his sister Sarah had been assaulted and abducted by men, unknown, who forced designer new drug upon them was still fresh in his mind. How he had broken free as the men held them in the back room of a shack that no longer existed to wait to see what effects their mutagen concoction would have upon them. The shack was destroyed in Shawn’s fury when he awoke after being thrown from the crane gantry he had dragged his sister to seeking escape from their captors which was subsequently struck by a lightning bolt that triggered his miraculous power. Shawn had lashed out without thought … those men would never harm anyone again. It was purely self-defense but their death’s still troubled his soul… he had killed them! Their bodies so badly burned they were merely piles of ash washed away by the rain, but not so easy to wash away the guilty memories.

It was appropriate to him that Thunderbolt before parting from his new companions… his newly formed team,
The RONIN. Here is where they would meet in secret their first meeting to officially organize themselves. The fight at the Rave Club had proved not only that they could work together but also that the criminals of the city were gathering to oppose them. Individually they each had little chance on their own.

But together... together these warriors… these RONIN could fight for a better city to take a stand against those who would hide from justice. Together they could make a difference. Slik Slanderer had mentioned he had a friend …Diesel who might be interested in helping out. It was a humble start… but it was a start.

Slik Slanderer, Diesel, Stalker, and Thunderbolt… Shawn pondered… could they do it? Could they be forged into a team of heroes? Could he bind them to his cause… Shawn was not sure… but he would give it his best effort…

Thunderbolt waited for the others to arrive … he sat on the hood of a wrecked Buick calmly out in the open waiting… and hoping…

Return of the Serpent Lord

GM Replies to the group

The ghost shape continues to form before you. Within seconds you can clearly make out the form of a what appears to first to be a humanoid female, with what looks like some sort of ceremonial headdress or mask obscuring her face. Soon her form begins to solidify before you.

Into the Mouth of Darkness

GM to the group at the mansion

Just to make sure everyone is clear on what's going on, here's a breakdown of exactly where everyone is at.

The Machinist, Power Chord, and Agent Woo, have just entered the broken second story window previously entered by Jack Frost and Skyhawk. To their immediate right is a long hallway, with several wood doors. To their left, at the opposite end of the hallway, are Jack, Skyhawk, and what appears to be the top of a stairwell. Jack and Skyhawk have been confronted by a group of serpent cultists dressed in dark brown robes. As the cultists approached, Skyhawk let loose with a power blast. Hopefully, that brings everyone up to speed on what's going on. If you've got any questions, let me know, and I'll do my best to clarify things. Good luck.

Rise of the Serpent God

GM Replies to the group at the estate.

As you go about your scouting mission, you are able to see the general layout of the estate, and the surrounding area. Skyhawk is able to receive clear images of the area, through his link with Archimedes. The grounds consist of a main building, a barn, and several small storage buildings, with a road running to the north. Other than a flicking light, coming from the downstairs windows, you see no signs of life on the grounds.

While it appears as though nothing is amiss, both Jack and Power Chord feel uneasy. The air feels old and stale, as though the life has been drained from it, and it makes your skin crawl.

Jack notices that while the area should be teeming with wildlife, it's strangely silent, as though the woodland animals have fled elsewhere. Power Chord feels an unnatural energy, that grows stronger with each passing moment.
