Maltese RPG

Session 4
Into The Anthill

Sage and Rush stopped to repair the Utility Vehicle. Vi and Ley stopped to help. Shana had her dragon veer off with Raven and Kessia to meet with the Scrovian chieftain.

Sage and Rush avoided some Vulcarth ground cycles and Sage hit a anti-personnel mine which caused a bump in the drive. The ground cycles are a relatively new invention for the Vulcarth and weren’t used in the war (100 SDP, 50 AR, 300 kmph, single cannon 20D AP, 1 km range, 20 blasts).

Two Vulcarth were burying a land mine in the road and an underground missile headed toward Vi’s VTOL. Five battle wheels flew past. Vi stealthed but was hit by a ship that didn’t see them. Sage hid in the smoke. They gained altitude to avoid the battle wheel fire. Sage and Rush teleported into the VTOL and headed to Scrovia. (Missile was a medium: 50D AP, the Battle wheels are the heavy enforcer ships of the vulvarth with a crew of fifteen, thirteen of which are gunners; 12 of the guns are 30D AP beam cannons with a 2 km range and the main weapon varies but is normally a 100D with a 5 km range that may be area effect or AP. Battle wheels have 1,000 SDP and 500 AR with a top speed of 500 kmph).

The girls had requested a meeting with the chieftain, but the Scrovians separated them and started moving them towards different areas: Raven towards the barracks/prisons, Kessia toward the work room/kitchen and Shana toward the chieftain. Shana called her dragon and provided coordinates for teleportation. Kessia’s attempt to intimidate worked, too well. More Scrovians filtered in. As soon as the dragon appeared, Raven and Kessia made a dash to Shana and the dragon. The only Scrovian that had remained stationary motioned the others to stand down. Then he escorted the girls to the chieftain. They managed to get directions and DNA and turned down a dinner invitation. Dinner was three roasted Vulcarth as the tribes in the war torn area of Scrovia have reverted to many primitive practices including cannibalism.

As they left, they saw the other members of their group and made arrangements to head out. Upon arriving at the location, the dragon hid and Vi flew pairs to check out the eight entrances. At the first checkpoint, they figured out which entrance had been entered by the prince. They stealthed in but ended up facing Vulcarth troops. After teleporting past the first group, more headed their way. In the ensuing battle, a tunnel was caved in and Scrovians entered the tunnel. (The vulcarth they face were relatively young troops and had no effective armor – AR 5, but wielded Halberds proficiently – 10D AP damage)

Allowing the Scrovians to delve in deeper, they took the first right and stealthed to the large room where the prince was being kept. Rush teleported to the prince grabbed him and teleported back to the group. The decision to depart immediately was made and he teleported the prince to the VTOL. Ley teleported Kessia to the dragon. Raven flew out to the dragon. Rush teleported to the entrance in order to lay down cover fire. Shana threw a grenade to cause a cave-in and block the troops from the big room from following them. (They avoided combat with the more seasoned troops guarding the slave pit, the soldiers were still using halberds and had light armor AR: 20, the officers had the same light armor but had swords – 6D AP, and Laser tubes – 6D AP, 100 meter range).

Then Sage and Shana ran to the entrance, avoiding contact with the troops they passed by. Rush teleported Sage to the VTOL and Shana to her dragon. Then the group headed back to Scrovia in order to return the prince to the chieftain. Rush went in to negotiate the reward excusing it as the cover was as mercenaries. (two of the gems were a Scrovian life crystals which are banned from trade but can be worth up to 5,000 credits, the syndicates are the only reliable buyers for a private seller and will only pay a tenth of that.)

Everyone else headed back to Maltese. Upon returning, they made repairs and upgrades.

Session award was 5 character points as a bonus for all the complications.

Session 3
Reboot (Scrovian Line)

Richard O’Malley appointed a covert crew to stop an impending war. They needed to stop raiders and rescue the Scrovian prince from the “Buzzards” aka Vulcarth.

After discussing offered equipment, the group took all of the standard issue gear and 2 utility trucks. Sage drove one truck with Rush on firearm duty. Dick drove the second truck with Zeus on firearm duty. Vi drove her VTOL with Leydyn as passenger. Lyshana rode her dragon.

Vi decided to scout ahead about 200km. Lyshana flew over the two trucks, which were travelling at 200km/h.

Neves Police pulled the convoy over and sage explained that we were mercenaries headed to Drazian.

In Scrovia Dick almost hit a guy in a gilly suit who had been pissing on the side of the road. He honked his horn, startling the Scrovian. As they drove through, it became apparent that the 10 Scrovians had been planning an ambush. Sage rammed into a Scrovian and dented his truck. Then the group noticed 23 MTB tanks and 3 skrims flying in. Rush managed to shoot down skrim fighters, a tank shot down one, and then more fighters flew in. All but 3 UN planes were shot down. Lyshana had her dragon light brush on fire between the tanks and her group. Sage drove into a ditch to avoid the tanks’ line of sight. This made Rush wish to switch trucks, again. Dick wanted a different gunner, since Zeus had trouble shooting down any apparent hostiles. Rush shot down the Scorpion.

Zeus called to let Vi and Leyden know that the group had been involved in the fighting that they had managed to avoid due to the VTOL’s invisibility. Lyshana realized that the MTB tanks were UN, although they were unaware of our connection due to the covert nature of our mission. Zeus decided to shoot at the downed Scorpion past the tanks. He managed to blow it up without hitting the UN tanks.

The Sokowi village is 1,000 km from Maltese. The utility trucks will take about seven hours getting there as the roads aren’t perfectly straight. We had made it through 5 hours of the trip at the end of last session. The Death Star was climbing out to orbit and moving into position over Sokowi which will take it 15 hours to complete.

Session 2
Bozos and Beheadings

The group found their missing member and extracted her from an underground lab and then managed to track Vickie to The Puss ’N Boots, but found her outside converted into a Bozo. As the group began to taunt the Bozos one member noticed there were many more Bozos and they had various preset traps and a clown converted dragon on nearby roofs.

After bringing Mace in the group started a small clown riot and then fled the area. After some down time they were called in on a more grim matter.

In Rolatia District, Andorra neighborhood, a police officer was beheaded and attempts to bring him back failed. It was established that there had been three other victims who had died in similar fashion and that the officer had been investigating the other deaths.

The first victim was an accountant and some determined digging turned up that he had an assumed identity and had several money laundering accounts. Deciding the money laundering and the deaths were linked to chip implants the characters staked out the homes of other implant recipients and then one of the Spotters heard a scream and the team came to the location where a firefight broke out.

Session 1
Into the Carnival

The Team was contacted by an Oracle Handler Joe Giovanni for a job in the Carnival District. Deloitte neighborhood has the Kitty Cat Club which was the focus of the investigation.

Mace Winston is a young genetic engineer who went to the Kitty Cat Club for recreation and became smitten with an anthropomorphic tiger named Vickie. Deciding he wanted to whisk away the young maiden he collected some of her DNA and made a retrovirus neutralizer to confirm her feelings were truly the same for him. Under the influence of the neutralizer Vickie said she remembered being a human before. Unable to safely extract Vickie on his own Mace went to the police, but they couldn’t find any signs of her. Mace then turned to Oracle.

The team gathered some basic information finding Joe used to be U.N. special forces from the Scrovian conflict with the Vulcarth. They learned Mace was a junior engineer on a U.N. supersoldier project for Biotech. The Kitty Cat Club belonged to Selena Marin who is a 70 year old Logoman.

Going into investigate the team gained information from various sources. None of the other dancers remembered Vickie. Selena frequented the Pink Flamingo Casino, she lived at the Golden Crown Hotel, and she often went to the Scarecrow Salon. Metal Storm was the strongest gang in the area. Further digging revealed Selena had about 50,000 credits in income and expenditures each month and the club was the same and had been steady for around 17 years.

On the second day the team figured out that the other girls at the club had a similar memory blocking, sex addiction factor. They then split up sending teams to the strip club, hotel, salon, and casino. The Casino team observed Selena spending several thousand credits at the craps table before leaving again. The Strip Club team observed several buses coming and going in the area with some strippers arriving and leaving on them. The Salon team learned some people had vanished there, but one of the salon team members also disappeared. The Hotel team ran afoul of some guards, but found some data-chips and managed to escape with them.
