Marionette AEGIS group chat

Hi all!

Wow, we’re in space! SPACE!

No cell service out here, but got a great selfie with Slag:

Glad we got Acid Rayne back, but worried for her. Dunno what those Rikti aliens did to her. Can’t wait to punch them.

So, back to Earth! Should be good to get back home again and deal with Molech once & for all.

TTYL!! (((HUGS)))

Journal Entry 1
Acid Rayne Abducted / Double Time / The Douche

The team returns to Aegis to find that Acid Rayne is missing. Investigation leads to information that Molech has abducted her. During the investigation we discover that a speedster named Double Time has infiltrated the base and has erased footage from the servers and security system. Agro spends time restoring the information and we discover that Acid Rayne was sent on a mission by President Johnson.

We investigate the abduction but are lead on a wild chase to various locations where we encounter minor crime bosses, thugs and villians who are bent on random destruction and harming civilians. We discover little information about why Double Time has infiltrated the base and who hired her only a name, Black Scott.

President Johnson asks us to head to an alien planet to discover the source of the technology that Molech is using to arm his soldiers.

The secret service warned me I cannot post my selfies to social media :( :( :( :(

Anyway, I had fun last night with you guys! Never a dull moment! Oh my, where to begin? The fish? That was a lot of fish. What was up with that?
What was Molech trying to prove? Anyway, he hasn’t responded to me on Twitter… prolly afraid.

Beating up The Douche was fun, but it’s always sad when they don’t live-up to expectations. Sigh.

Anyway, I can’t write on my whiteboard from here, so here’s your inspiration for our flight!

Wow… traveling to another galaxy. Should be fun!

A Fireman, Porcelain Doll, and a Beauty Queen Swim to The Canary Islands...
Stop Me if You've Heard This One Before...

They say, “you can always judge a man not by his friends, but by the quality of his enemies.” If that’s true we should probably turn in our “super hero” badges now and go our separate ways ’cause our enemies are a bunch of fuck-tards. Rowdy Randy? Pimply faced frat-boy reject Molek? Really? But I get ahead of myself.

So here we are on landing approach to the Canary Islands when a bunch of shirtless flying guidos with helmets appear and start shooting lightning bolts at our plane. Our Deadpool looking wanna-be, Fizzard, starts “Poppin bottles in the ice, like a blizzard” in the sky but while the ladies may like his style, the guidos didn’t and they kept dodging the big F’s blocks (apparently they fear shrinkage quite a bit. I wonder why…). Cap Portugal said he could get out there and fight them so I told him to do so and took over control of the plane.

All is going as planned but then I noticed one of the Guidos had a tattoo like the prick I met up in Arlington a few weeks ago. Dude was a real ass-hole and well, PMS is a bitch. So I hit him with the plane. Now when you have a plane that can convert to a submarine one has to believe it would be able to take a minor collision in mid-air. Besides that, they do tests on the engines by throwing birds in them to ensure an engine doesn’t take down the plane if something is inadvertently sucked in. I mean really, the Guido is basically just a giant bird and the engine probably shouldn’t have just exploded like that when he hit it. Obviously, it was defective. Probably a United Technology engine.

So calm as can be I try to right the plane and emergency land on water. The plane was hard to control and so I tell the Marionette to get a parachute in back just in case. I can’t imagine she’ll survive a plane crash very well and if I hit the volcano well… its that humpty-dumpty gluing the pieces back together again thing. Not pretty, lets avoid it. Anyway, I struggled and asked Fizzard to seal the engine and make it aerodynamic to help me stabalize. He obliged, I steadied the plane, was able to target the water, slow down, and come in for a mildly rough landing. Cap P joined us, sealed the plane, and we went to Submarine mode and made it to the island with 5 hours to spare. No sweat.

We got close to the island and took a small launch to land. From there we hoofed it through the woods. A 5 mile hike through jungle to the volcano top was very scenic. We were making good time when a few Raptors decided to drop in on us. I’ve seen Jurassic Park like 10 times and let me tell you, it is nothing like the real raptors. Pack hunters my ass. They just attacked like chumps and got a bit lucky with a claw here and there. And for the record, Marionnete is like lightning. She moves like a butterfly and stings like a mack truck. Once the luggage hit the ground permanently I checked them out and found GPS tags. i took them for possible future use.

Anyway, after applying some treatment to Fizz to get him standing again we continued on our way. M. was doing some scouting and discovered a band of tribal/native/fashion disasters coming our way. I was all for avoiding them but we ended up effectively blasting an air horn for everyone to know, “HEY! COMPLETELY UNSTEALTHY SCHMUCKS ARE RIGHT HERE” to the neighborhood. Some loin-cloth clad native found us and started jabbering at us in a language that sounded like pig-latin. I decided to see what he was thinking, flashed a smile and a wink, then read his thoughts. I didn’t have to go far to note the concept of “Sacrifice” and “lunch”. I mentioned to M. we needed to get out of there post-haste and she picked me and F. up and jumped. A lot. While a very quick means of egress, it plays havoc on your back.

So like a giant porcelain kangaroo with 2 kids, we jumped to the top of the volcano. Once there, we checked out the buildings and found one with a lot of dead lab coat wearing types all dead and beaten to a pulp. One “scientist” happened to still be alive though in trouble. With my assistance, F. was able to resuscitate him. As expected, the dude wasn’t much help and couldn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know. What can you do, though? Sometimes you just gotta save people even if they’re useless. And probably evil. Let’s not forget that.

At the bottom of 6 flights of stairs (6 flights? Secret government compound anyone?), we see the Spanish Main connected to his machine, his sabre, and a camera. Fizzard being camera shy freezes and knocks over the camera. I was ready for my close up too, me and F. are going to have a serious chat about this later. Anyway, suddenly, Molek’s voice plays and says aren’t we enthusiastic (or some other dumb shit comment) and accelerates the countdown clock to 60 seconds. I go grab the sabre and F. investigated and found a “release” lever. Dude’s gotta go to Vegas, what are the odds of finding that? Better still, what are the odds that someone would actually investigate?? Right?

Spanish Main releases and all of the sudden the Volcano starts to erupt. Figures. This Molek does not have an original bone in his body. We exit the Observatory and run into…..drum roll please. Macho Man Randy Savage. Apparently with Downs or some other unfortunate mental defect. Oh, and a giant metal body. with fists bigger than my body. Oh, and some Guido minions. Anyway, Marionnet saunters over to Macho Man and goes one on one. Fizzard and I take on the minions; Fizzard by trying to suffocate the life out of them (dude, lithium… all i’m saying) and me by beating the snot out of them. Long story short, we whooped them.

And as a brief aside. Recall the afore mentioned PMS comment. Throwing electrically charged guidos into the volcano is a PERFECTLY acceptable strategy, especially when they die anyway once defeated. Besides, Guidos beat by a girl? Shit, they would have jumped if I hadn’t thrown them in!!

Anyway, Marionette knocked out Randy with one hit (glass jawed mofo, am I right??), and now we’ve got this Actively Erupting Volcano on which we are standing. What does Fizzard Do? Drops a metric SHIT TON of dry ice into the volcano. This is “how to put out a volcano 101” folks. Bravo! Like a bad sitcom, you can guess the next thing that happens. Our boy Molek calls us to tell us how he kid napped Acid Rayne. He and I bantered a little bit and we discussed shrinkage and ice berg tips. He was trying to be meaningful but i’ve gotten better dialogue off of a cheerios box.

So after hanging up on Jr, the best thing ever happened! Fizzard created a 4 MILE LONG ice slide to get us from the top of the volcano to the airport. That was an AWESOME ride… but it is a good thing I was wearing my thong cause that would have been atomic wedgie city.

Anyway, once at the bottom, we realize we need to get back to Washington post-haste. Our plane/sub has got to be repaired so I make a phone call and have a private jet sent to the airfield to fly us back to the States. The rest is, as they say, history.

The Rayne in Spain...

www.iac.jpgAs the team approached La Palma in the Canary Islands, they were attacked by several flying shirtless Bros, shooting lightning at the C2B2. Fizzard tried to suffocate them from the plane, but was unable to hit a moving target like that while the plane itself was moving. Captain Portugal said he could fight them, having the ability to fly if someone could take over flying the C2B2. Angel emphatically stated that she could fly the jet and took over. This turned out to be more difficult than she thought. As she was trying to fly through the combat, she steered directly into one of the Bros, who hit the engine and caused the plane to start to go down. She was able to pull away from land just in time and hit the water and change into Submarine mode as Captain Portugal finished off the last of the Bros. The C2B2 suffered severe damage but was able to continue along as a Submarine to bring the team toward the destination.

The Captain steered the team toward an uninhabited part of the cloud forest in the north of the island and let the team embark toward shore. Intel pointed toward the transmission coming from the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos, an Observatory on the edge of the volcano at the center of the island, but first the team needed to march through the forest to get there, and time was ticking on the countdown clock attached to The Spanish Maine.. While trudging through the forest, The Marionette noted that they were being surrounded by something, something that was all claws and teeth.

A small pack of Velociraptors leaped from the brush and were upon the team. Fizzard got pretty beat up, but the team was able to prevail. They noticed that these were indeed flesh and blood Dinosaurs, but they were all tagged with a GPS locator. Angel was able to remove them and turn them all off. While Fizzard recovered and Angel messed with these, a large group of tribals approached the team. Unable to understand the language, Angel read one of their thoughts and realized that they wanted to Sacrifice them to “The Great One” – she told the team to get out of there and The Marionette grabbed Fizzard and Angel and lept them out of the area. As she carried them, they noticed that there was about a 40’ area of forest trees that were moving behind them. Presumably a VERY big dinosaur!

They made it up to the Observatory and found several dead scientists, but one was left barely alive. Dr. Pietro San Marcos told them that they were attacked by the shirtless men and a giant Robot Man. He also let slip that the Observatory was secretly researching Alien life and technology in the lower levels, where The Spanish Maine was being held.

They headed to the basement that was empty except for the Spaniard and a camera pointing toward him. Purple energy was flowing through tubes attached to his arms. Fizzard destroyed the camera and a voice came over the intercom. The hour and a half on the clock suddenly changed to 60 seconds. The team acted quickly – Angel removed the sword from the machine and Fizzard pulled a lever labeled in Spanish that he couldn’t read. The Spanish Maine was released from the machine and the sword flew into his hand. He immediately started to regenerate and come to. As the clock hit 0, the volcano that the group was perched on started to erupt.

As they grabbed The Maine and the Scientist, they were approached by 5 Bros and a 10’ Cyborg who called himself Rowdy Randy. The battle ensued and Randy proved to be extremely resistant to the teams attacks, but Marionette landed a lucky blow and took him down. Fizzard created tons and tons of dry ice and was able to crust over the eruption, saving nearly 100.000 lives. After the battle, the video screens on the Bros helmets turned to a video of another Bro, who identified himself as Molech. He seemed pissed and made some remarks to Angel that he wouldn’t just use the tip when he met her. He then revealed that he had Acid Rayne captive. The trap wasn’t for the team it seems, it was for her.

Angel used his (now a him) contacts to charter a private jet back to the United States as the C2B2 wouldn’t be able to get back for several days as a Submarine. Arriving back on US soil, and going to the base, the team found the base intact – Acid Rayne was lured away somewhere else and captured there, not here.

Wazzup peepz?!
Checking in from the Canary Islands:

Yeah, so we flew here… kinda. Angel “landed” the plane in the water with a broken engine, but we made it! So nice here, except for the dude-bro mutie bikers. And velociraptors… And volcanoes.

So, we’re here to save The Spanish Maine, but ran into dinosaurs and some tribals on the way. Angel said to get us out of there, so I tucked Angel and Fizzard under my arms and jumped away from the tribe & big-azz dino. No time for that.

Got to the top of the volcano to find massacred scientists and the captured Spanish Maine hooked up to strange devices. We got him free, and Molech taunted us through the speakers, shortening the timer to 60 secs. We scram and find the volcano erupting… and that’s when stuff got crazy.

Rowdy Randy (a mecha-human) lands with some dude-bro biker muties and talks smack about beating us up – I know it’s time to show him some girl-power. So, I go toe-to-toe with the colossus and eventually punch thru his armor. Being untouchable, of course he cannot hit me, not even with his fist-missiles. Marionette 1, Randy 0.

But then I’m stressin’ about what to do with the volcano and Fizzard has that under control. He spends a few minutes converting tons of volcano smoke into dry ice and shuts it down… saving 80k people on the island! He’s the true hero today!!! {{{HUGS}}} to the Fizzy!

Oh, but Acid Rayne is captured by the dude-bro Molech somehow, so we gotta get back to the States pronto! I look forward to punching Molech… Hard. TTYL!!

Trouble in the Yard

Whenever I’m asked to cover a Hero story, it’s never dull, and last night proved the rule.

What started off as a typical hero meet-n-greet quickly turned into a frenzied brawl. The mayor (Judith Wilson) and chief of police (William Reed) were on hand to welcome AEGIS into the area. A few colorful representatives from the group attended and mingled with the crowd before opening remarks.

I planned to speak with them more after dinner but never got the chance. Bare-chested, mutie bikers literally crashed the party – they crashed-in through the windows. They called-out AEGIS specifically and showed a live feed from somewhere else – perhaps one of their members being held captive? (I have yet to get an official statement from AEGIS).

AEGIS immediately sprang into action, though it was clear some of the junior members had trouble. The lightning thrower managed to hit everything in the room except the bikers. However, The Marionette and a large metallic bruiser seemed to have the situation under control, moving from biker to biker and knocking them unconscious with one punch. The Marionette even defended the mayor from several assailants. I need an exclusive interview with her for sure!

After the brawl, AEGIS left with haste, most probably to go save their captured ally. The mayor’s security details also whisked her away and the police did their best to clean up the scene. Just another exciting night in the Yard!

A Friend in Need...

Sometimes you want to be the hero at the ready – the first on the scene. Then again, sometimes being the hero who is around means you need to go to a PowerPoint presentation on public relations.

Angel, Master Windu, Noah Richter (Net Zero), Slag, Aggro and The Marionette were those unlucky heroes who got to do just that. Acid Rayne stressed how important fund raisers like the one tonight at the Ft Myers Officers Club were for making sure there’s still money for fuel for the jet and food for the heroes. The group was “volun-told” to attend this black tie affair, make nice, take pictures and promote the good working relationship with the Mayor and with the local Police. The group grumbled and agreed – except The Marionette, who was VERY excited and asked a lot of questions.

While getting fitted for tuxedos and dresses, Aggro came across a news post that there was an attack in the Canary Islands where local police and crime fighters were called to action. This was a point of interest, but nothing more at this point.

The team took the van and arrived at the gala early. They met and chit chatted with Judith Wilson, The Mayor of DC and with William Reed, The Police Chief. Lots of pictures were taken with the “weirder” members of the team and all was going well until Angel started saying a few words about AEGIS. At that point, the PA and screens were taken over by an outside intruder. AEGIS was called out as Douchebags and dared to save a man strapped to a machine with an ornate cutlass – energy flowing through both. There was a countdown timer of approximated 13 hours. This turned out to he a hero known as The Spanish Maine.

At that point, a dozen shirtless men in motorcycle helmets busted into the gala and started to attack the team and important officials. The team cleaned up the minions fairly well – they seemed to be super strong and shot electricity. One of the minions tried to fire electricity at one point and his arm exploded instead. Afterward, Aggro discovered that they all had cybernetic implants that gave them their powers. They all were dead at the end, even though some were barely knocked out – cyanide. The Mayor and Police Chief were happy with the team and Acid Rayne showed up to clean up the scene while the team prepped to fly to the Canary Islands.

They found out that there were 2 other attacks – Las Vegas and San Antonio, also where the supers lost. The 3 other attacks besides DC, more than 30 assailants were involved as opposed to the 12 in DC. It seems clear that it is a trap, and the mastermind behind it is a mysterious figure named Molech.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
