Tentacles in the field
Get the fucking bell out of here

The team found out some things.

  1. They need to get rid of the bell.
  2. The general is holding onto to New Columbus and it might be a bad idea.
  3. VoidWalker looked into the void and found 2 different spots where the dimensions touch.

They took the bell out of town into southeast Ohio and set it on the ground. The tentacles followed and began to emerge from the ground. A large fight ensued and the tentacles lost. They team did manage to get a little banged up in the fray. The Yank rang the bell causing an explosive killing attack. Big boys big toys.

A couple of interesting things to note. The tentacle dissolve into the ground. The bell changed when it was rang at the university.

Car parts and the Giant Zombies
Wherein the ash falls the car parts are stolen and the bell rings untrue

Ash falls on the town and the team helps how they can. Rasinaire scouts for an underground hideout. The Yank helps move a reactor. And some other things. Most things are dying and the cattle is winnowed. Crops are brought in immature and unripe. The inventors in the group help make a street sweeper with lasers and a water filter with lasers. Because they like lasers.

They foil a robbery of the free area Vektor is found to be squishy and over confident. The mooks are taken out but the main villan is able to escape.

Later the bell is rung again, but instead of driving away tentacles, it summons 3 giant zombies. They vomit and are very resistant to damage, but the group manages to take them out. San Rocketeer shows up and keep the yank out of the fight until the end. He is sent to the brigade but later is bailed out by a Senator. Boys will be boys.

The Tentacle Monsters and Purple goop.
The sun the bell and the black tentacles

Ellison told a lie of omission and Bazooka Girl figure it out. This led to Sinic convincing General Blake that an aircraft was needed to hop over to Indiana. In Indiana there is a farmers field with a giant puddle of purple goo with a tree growing out of the edge. Under this is The Standing Sun pinned by a bell.

VoidWalker wades into the goo and gets a 10 point multipower. Eventually everyone wades in or (bathes) except Vektor. By the end of the session the party is able to change the power once a day.

Black Tentacles. Below ground are black tentacles. Possible remnants of the tentacle dragon. They put up a minor fight with the party and immediately disperse when the bell is rung.

The party returns to Columbus bringing along with them two tentacles, the bell and a drum of purple goo.

At the end of the encounter. There was a large Earthquake and what the team suspects is a large Volcanic eruption in the Western US

Inside is a white insect demon thing doing something.

The team charges ahead. Some bounce off the globe. Bazooka girl leaves because of a shoe sale. Void Walker teleports in easily and finds the sea monsters. Rasinaire is paralyzed by the thought of water. Anyway the big bad white insect is eventually defeated. Major mind power was thrown about. Making Bazooka Girl buy shoes.

Poor sad Ax Beak

After Omaha the team had an appointment with an Ax Beak. Bazooka Girl intercepted communications between Mr X.(Ax Beak) and Jo Meat a strength mutant in New Columbus. She arranged to pick up the package a day earlier. And have an unidentified Jo Meat pick up a cleverly crafted duplicate.

Void Walker was staking out the Package Office while Jo picked up the package. As luck would not have it, an invisible Void Walker fell from the ceiling taking a huge chunk of drywall with him. This freaked out Jo who quickly ditched the package in an alley and drove off.

The party tracked Jo to his home that he shares with his wife and child. They asked for a favor in the future for their silence. As a member of brigade he could be removed from New Columbus.

The device is a teleport pad. Bazooka Girl turned the design over to GoOra for a favor. The team then proceeded to go to a remote location and ambush Mr. X. They took him below zero in less than two phases. Fortunately for Mr. X he had another teleport pad strapped to his body that would take him back. His feathers are numbered for just such an emergency. The initial pad is scrap.

The team then spoke to the Standing Sun. He filled them in. The brood come from a passing dimension trying to lock in place, make a bridge, invade, consume. The good folks at Michigan University opened a book and performed a ritual. That led to massive zombie badness. The team was sent to the U of M to retrieve the tome. They encountered some Zombies that would mow down normal people. The group was unimpressed and handled them easily. They were able to retrieve the book after it tried to mind control Cynic I believe.

The rescue of Fred Deere

With the direction of Brigade the team goes to extract Fred Deere. Raisin with his tunneling powers digs a hole down to the level of the basement where he is trapped. The area is filled with gas and has two active gun turrets. The team takes them out with not a lot of effort and proceeds to open the impenetrable vault via computer.

The gray brood close in. Raisin intercepts about 1/4 mile out. He pops up and attacks an adult. He is then grabbed and pummeled into coma. Void Walker closes with Yank and then gets the hell away. The brood are picked off in short order. One surprise comes while chasing the gray adult. He turns around and moves through yank and VW doing a lot of stun.

The vault is opened. The gas clears out and Fred is found to be a brain in a jar interrupted while transferring to another machine. He pleads with the party to put him in a chopper and get him out of there. They eventually agree, and take Fred and his equipment back to Columbus.

Raisin takes down the mountain by tunneling through the wall.

Omaha and the Giant Screw

Rollerbabe figures out that Mr. X is up to something. He is able to intercept an email between X and a confederate in New Columbus. The team is setting up an interception.

Meanwhile, Breadbasket has called for help. There is a large wall growing in Omaha and a mountain being built upside down. They encounter three types of creature: Gray child brood, The Gray Man, and Screw Arcs with brain bugs. Wait that’s for. The wall that they create is radioactive. The Screw Arcs have a close NND radioactive attack. The Gray Man has Armor Piercing Killing. He almost kills The Yank. The children knock out Bazooka Girl. Cynic shows up for about 1 phase only to be knocked out. NND presence drain by the Rasin makes several enemies ineffective. The team takes out the children first. The bugs stop the arcs to concentrate on Voidwalker. They almost get Voidwalker.

Anyway the Arcs are stopped the Wall it breached by Rasin. Rasin is about to head off take out the inner wall when he held up. There is a scientist the brigade would like to collect.

Down on the farm

Cynic learns from his military contact that GoOra is monitoring the world. In fact they are very concerned about the brood. There seem to be multiple types of brood with the successful types being boosted and the unsuccessful ones disappearing. GoOra sees this as a threat to the world. All of Eastern Ohio is dead brood haven eaten them.

The group go out to look at the free farmer James Landry. They find slaughter and come upon some brood children. They took them out easily. Hindsight would say –OCV to swing that tree Yank. Unless you took time to strip branches. Tree farmer encounter attacked.

On the way back from the farmers house their vehicle is attacked by a drone aircraft and destroyed. The US Army is looking for The Yank again.

2 experience for all the attendees.
