Wasteland Campaign

A Shaky Truce...
that Qohan immediately breaks.

Wednesday Group 9/21/16
In game date: 1/13-1/14

Surprisingly for the party, the group spares Qohan, threatening death and genocide to his whole family should he ever meet them again. They return to the car and drive until midnight, where they go through the portal. They return to Silotown and sleep.

Gullycloak teleports back to the treasure room and finds Qohan rallying all the blue and red dragons to attack Silotown. He convinces them to attack from slightly northwest of Silotown on 1/20, one week from today.

Gullycloak then teleports to King Coal and convinces him to bring an army to Silotown to protect against the dragon alliance.

A paladin, Iona, comes to the town, asking for the Silotown Saviors. She is brought into the town and told the rules. In the morning, she is introduced to the group.

A strange, scarred man claims to be from Zorbon and demands Chef Kipp and 100 creatures to eat in exchange for Zorbon’s mercy. The other Silotown heroes decide to take care of this job.

They also hear news from the north of cultists pursuing the caravans of Shao Khan. The group addresses the rest of the petitioners to help out with the battle in exchange for favorable consideration. Those petitioners decide not to join the battle.

The group comes upon the wagons being pursued by a bunch of crab-like creatures, and a horrifying abberation.

The group manages to fight off the creatures and rescue Shao Khan’s men. The drivers mention that the vampires were unable to join the battle considering the daylight.

Gullycloak charms the Elder Deep One and shadow-walks the creature into the middle of Qohan’s forces, before bamfing out of there.

But another large group of crab creatures, including another Elder Deep One, are hot on their heels! With the binding, they now have everything they need to summon the Blue King near the Eldritch Machine.
And with Qohan’s forces only a week away, what preparations will they make for the battles to come?

Red vs Blue... And the Silotown Saviors

Wednesday Group 8/31/16
In game date: 1/13

Fenrir is told by Mayor Hal about Kreg’s killing of a local merchant/druglord. He tells Fenrir that they need this problem to go away with money.

Gullycloak and Kreg manage to find a vantage point that hides them from the sky. They ultimately decide to kill Alekstrasa, without Qohan’s help as they do not trust her. They meet up with this horrific-looking dwarf who looks like he’s seen some rough days, named Stonecancer McVeigh. As the sky suddenly darkens, they see what looks like a truly monumental red dragon passing over and landing on the sand, suddenly disappearing below. Giving her enough time to bed down, the team makes pursuit.

As Fenrir uses his clairvoyant powers to see into the room, they teleport in to meet Qohan. They make an uneasy deal for the future as to whether they trust each other enough to not mess in the other’s affairs after they kill their mutual enemy. They head down the hall, apprehensive of the colossal dragon they saw earlier. They then unleash hell upon Alekstrasa, while Fenrir pops into the chest chained on her neck and wraps the book binding in his angelhide tent. Qohan’s lightning, Grimsbone and Stonecancer McVeigh’s pummeling, Kreg’s bomb injections, Gullycloak’s support, and Orin’s Anklyosaurus summon all did major damage, but Alekstrasa still breathed and seemed like she was about to wake up. But Meera waved her arms, a water elemental springing into existence and rushing up Alekstrasa’s nose to her unprotected brain, where it made of a slurry of what was once one of the greatest minds in existence.

Alekstrasa, bloodied and battered, slumps down for the final time, as she draws her last breath and collapses. The group breathes a sigh of relief as the powerful dragon died before waking up, as they would have been surely doomed had she woken in time to protect herself. They turn to Qohan, appraising the creature who has worked with and against them so much in the past two months.

Will the Silotown Saviors release Qohan and go on their merry way? Or will they betray Qohan before he betrays them?

Tracking Qohan to his Lair

Wednesday Group 8/24/16
In game date: 1/12-1/13

As the dragons set down on the illusion, the group attacks the dragons. After the dragons are all slaughtered, the group gathers up the corpses and take the boat back to Silotown. When they get back, they parade the corpses through town. Gullycloak talks to Orlaaz about ranged weapons for the Fire Guild. Kreg starts looking around the town to find out what’s going on in his constituency.

Gullycloak sets up the train beacon that Qohan left at Santa’s workshop. At midnight, they meet up with Meera in the desert (who tailed Qohan partway back to his lair.) Gullycloak travels through the Shadow Plane and manages to find the perfect vantage point for Qohan’s base.

Once the rest of the group catches up, they find a place where they can rest without being easily spotted and plan their reconnaissance.

Meeting Up with Qohan, again

Wednesday Group 8/17/16
In game date: 1/11-1/12

The group heads back to Silotown to meet up with the dwarves. They say they’ll head against the current, but Orlaaz created a motor to fix that problem. As they head out at night of 1/11, Meera gives the treasurepig some form of intelligence. As Hatter gives it a hat, another pig bites it on the neck and Gullycloak kills the new pig.

As they approach the coliseum, they hear creepy chanting that stops as Hatter rushes haphazardly towards it. As the group follows afterwards, a scorpion appears and attacks the Hatter. The Blue Sign shows up in the sky and infects everyone but Orin and Gullycloak. Orin catches the cultists in Black Tentacles, Slugtusk squirts some vaginal juice into the Scorpion and Kreg injects it with explosives. Hatter throws hats on three cultists and they gain new limbs and extra torsos. After they die, they set up watch.

During the night, Kreg sees a woman covered in Blue Signs. He explodes her head with his syringes. They find out during the night that one of the dwarves was a traitor and that the red dragons were coming at noon.

Qohan shows up and does a big info dump and tells them that Alekstrasa will be in his lair and will be asleep for 12 hours. The group argues over whether to trust Qohan (again), but decides to judge his worthiness as an ally by fighting alongside him in the fight with the red dragons in a few hours.

Enemy Enslavement

Wednesday Group 8/10/16
In game date: 1/11

Orlaaz gathers up the Hatter, Meera, and Slugtusk and takes them out to meet Kreg, Gullycloak, and Orin. As they meet up, Kreg starts to open the chest and finds a wealth of items, gold, and an orb reminiscent of the ones that could power the Engines.

The group spots a Salamander being sneaky in the sand. He sets off a flare and starts retreating. The flare seems to have become a heat vacuum and something is falling from the sky. The rest of the group gathers around the Cyclowhip as Orin chases down the Salamander, demanding to know what’s going on. The object crashes into the earth, spraying magma all around it. A bunch of creatures, including fiery dogs and a large giant come out of the object. The Saviors come up to the Fire Giant. The group goes back and forth with trying to get around the fact that Kreg secretly stole the orb from the chest before returning the chest to the Doomwake Cinders.

Eventually sensing that Kreg was hiding something, and provoked by Gullycloak’s arrogant claims of superiority, the Fire Giant began his attack with his Salamanders. Orin ambushed the Salamanders from invisibility, expecting this to happen. Kreg jumps onto the Fire Giant’s head and injects him with his trusty bomb syringe. Before the battle can get really heated, though, Gullycloak proclaims that the Cinders are nothing and banishes the Salamanders with a mighty burst of holy power from Ashava.

Faced with his entire gang either banished or paralyzed from the sheer weight of Gullycloak’s words, the Fire Giant submitted to the Silotown Saviors. The Hatter throws a hat on the Fire Giant and arcane symbols appear on his eyes and shooting strange beams out of his eyes, presumably to humiliate him further. Gullycloak demands that the Fire Giant give them everything in the chest and further, for him and the remainder of the Doomwake Cinders to swear fealty to the Silotown Saviors or suffer dire consequences. Humiliated and defeated in a matter of seconds, the Fire Giant retreats back across the wastes, admitting his newfound loyalty to the party.

As they divided up the loot, the group decided to head onwards to the lair of Alekstrasa, the red dragon, to retrieve the binding of the Blue Pages.

Bartering and Betrayal

Wednesday Group 8/3/16
In game date: 1/11

As they heal Ocular Guardority of his madness, they tell him that they are heading to fight the red dragon. A Catfolk bumps into Kreg and hands him a note, urging him to come to Chez Kipp. When they get there, they are led downstairs, where they see a crazy torture scheme to make different forms of food out of intelligent creatures. After the misunderstanding is cleared up, they are brought up to meet the catfolk and Sanara. She asks them to meet up and destroy the Doomwake Cinders pursuing her people.

The Elder tells them of an eldritch machine called Cuthbert’s Hammer that can kill the Blue King when he is summoned. But when it is used, everything there is dead, including magic itself. The island where it’s at, is so far south, that we’ve never been there before.

They start heading to the east, in order to try to mediate the situation with the Doomwake Cinders. Suddenly, the Cyclowhip breaks down and 3 triceratops appear out of nowhere and bullrush the vehicle. Gullycloak notices a scuffling near a rock and dispels the triceratops. Orin suddenly spots Garth and glitterdusts him to show his outline to everyone else. Garth summons some more triceratops and demands that they hand over the pages. As they beat the fudge out of him, he teleports away and leaves the triceratops behind.

After they defeat the triceratops, they go to meet Sanara’s tribe. Once they get there, they are greeted by many Catfolk of all ages in a cave. They ask if the Silotown Saviors will protect them from the Fire Guild and the Doomwake Cinders in exchange for an artifact they stole.

Gullycloak points out that Silotown has laws and the Catfolk will no longer be allowed to steal, also that protecting them would be in direct violation of their agreement with the Fire Guild. The group demands to see the artifact before promising anything, which the Catfolk disagree with (believing the Saviors will just murder them and take it). When asked why they got themselves into such trouble in the first place, the Catfolk reply that things that are so easy to steal deserve to be stolen. After Gullycloak threatens to murder them and take it anyway, the Catfolk reluctantly show them the box. Orin describes the aura as being similar to the orbs used for the Engines.

Gullycloak, Kreg, and Orin decide that the Catfolk still cannot come to Silotown as they are unrepentant thieves and liars. They will be allowed to go to another city unharmed. However, the group decides to bribe the Fire Guild into leaving the Catfolk alone, as they already have an agreement. If the Doomwake Cinders do not also back down, the group decides to take them out for the safety of the wastes.

TL;DR Ocular Superiority is healed of madness, they learn how to truly defeat the Blue King instead of just sealing him away, they make a deal to protect Catfolk in exchange for artifact, Garth betrays and attacks the group (proclaiming that humans have destroyed the wastes and that the Blue King can start it over anew).

The Monster Becomes Manic

Wednesday Group 7/20/16
In game date: 1/10-1/11

As they show up in town, they learn all that has happened in the past week in Silotown. They find out that the Fire Guild is seeking bandits and requested help. Sanara’s family is coming. Gullycloak confronts Muldark and beats the shit out of him. Gullycloak commands the rest of the vampires to take Muldark’s coffin back up north to tell Shao Khan that Muldark is not worthy of standing beside him in his army.

In the morning, they go down to see Ocular Superiority in the mass of caverns. Gullycloak convinces him to change his name to Ocular Guardority. As they hand over the Blue Pages to OG, Sanara disagrees with trusting him and attempts to leave without handing over her page.

As OG attempts to stop her with force, the Silotown Saviors are forced into battle. Gullycloak momentarily blinds OG, while Orin turns hims into a mindless monster in an attempt to disable him. With OG reduced to a babbling monster incapable of telling ally from foe, the group leaves the monster and flees the underground chamber.

Wednesday Group 6/29/16
In game date: 1/10

As Varia, Bibwit, and Meera are in the marketplace, they hear explosions and are summoned to the throne room. As they gather up loot and the page from the vault, they remove the cursed laurel crown from Roman’s head and teleport back into the desert outside of Silotown.

They are confronted by some of Varia’s old enemies, supported by Zorbon. We fight them. Bibwit eats the intestine of one of the creatures and manages to throw off the effects. They come upon Silotown, and it has been greatly reinforced with metal walls.

The Last Crusade?

Saturday Group 6/25/16
In-game date 1/2

Reyes is sold to House Percelli as Hawk. She goes to visit House Denny to meet up with Kreg.

Gullycloak pops into existence next to Dale. A siren starts going off and alerts everyone. We hear the announcer of the games saying that the page has been stolen by Dale Turbo. The various houses are gearing up for war. Aladdin the cherub meets up with Dale and tries to find a way to get them out of there. They show up in a room full of guards.

As Dale and Gullycloak burst out onto the scene, the other champions are hustling after them. Dale and Gullycloak get knocked out of their chariot for a moment, but manage to climb back in. Aladdin falls off and can’t catch up. Dale breaks his hand and starts falling. The area is sheer chaos as various events keep them from staying on their griffins for long.

Eventually, Gullycloak teleports himself and Dale back to his temple. Back in the air, the army start frantically searching for them. Roren and Kreg move over to Reyes as Lazar starts falling horribly. But Lazar manages to cling to a griffon, but Reyes is entangled in its reins. Reyes escapes and manages to get to Lazar. Roren and Kreg are flung by the dragon, and Roren manages to teleport them all back. Gullycloak and Dale hide the page deep in the church.

The Silotown Slayers’ journey seems to be done for now, but what of the threat of the giants? They know that the group is from Silotown, will they chase us down?

Betrayal at Court

Wednesday Group 6/8/16
In game date: 1/10

As they sit down to dinner, they once again give up their weapons. Razzo is accosted for his ghost gauntlet. The King, Queen, and the General sit down to dinner. Negotiations break down almost immediately because it is revealed that the Emperor must obey every command given to him. Emperor Roman attacks Sanara and Orin, Razzo shoots fireballs everywhere. It is just absolute chaos. Black Tentacles, teleporting, brutal fighting, it’s crazy. The queen reveals herself to have been altered by the Blue King, as she attacks herself with a claw.

The General stands down once he sees that we’re attacking the queen. Sanara kills him after he tries to betray us anyway. After Razzo’s suggestion, the King kills the queen.

Having learned that both the Queen and the General were manipulating the King, the mystery only grows deeper. Further, there is news that a third seal has been broken? But how, when we have all the pages and the last one has been locked up? Is it a lie? Or has someone read the one in the vault?
