Necessary Evil Recap 28

September 16, 2017 @ 1:30-8:00 P.M.

Before Game Setup: 

Omega Cell 107 Report 28

Tuesday December 14, 2004
Setsuna's Secret Brothel, Southpoint, Star City 

Setsuna went to Willy the Fish to purchase some bouncers. After some negotiation, she paid $18,000 to hire three bouncers from Willy the Fish. 

[With a wealth modifier -3 for monthly income as well. However, the minion bodyguards came equipped with Ablative armor, Vibro knives, and Herokiller pistols. It's all about the gear and not the stats. At a x 6 modifier (Setsuna got a 19 Persuasion, so -4 to the normal x 10 modifier), Three HK pistols is $5,400, Three Vibro Knives is $9,000, and the Ablative armor is $3,600. Which comes to $18,000. The bouncers cost a -$1,000 a month stipend themselves. Gotta survive till the first payday on New Year's Day] 

Meanwhile, Bubbles was bored and played a little mind control game on one of Setsuna's dancers. She made her do a strange jellyfish dance on stage. This confused B-Hold-R and he reached out his telepathic (and paralytic) tentacle to ask if she was alright. This made her drop prone on stage from paralysis, making everyone in the room think she had an epileptic seizure on stage except for the culprits.  After realizing that the dancer was ok and under Bubbles' control, B-Hold-R skulked away.

Wheeljack paid for some recreation with one of the dancers and was suddenly shocked by the new $400 price tag. With the trouble with The Family, Setsuna had raised prices x10. If it was good enough for Willy the Fish, it was good enough for her girls.

Bubbles mind controlled the DJ to play YMCA during Wheeljack's private session but the dancer's improvisation skills saved the day. 

[Bubbles tried to mind control a bouncer as well to dance the YMCA while the DJ played the song with her More Minds power.]

"No more mind controlling the dancers or the DJ!"--Setsuna

Setsuna's Secret Brothel, Southpoint, Star City

I sent them an urgent distress call from the Undergrounders. I had sent 4-Star and Lucky underground after they had refused to be around Setsuna's lair. Something was attacking them in the sewers. Fortunately for the group, Bubbles knew the location of the Undergrounder base and the Omegans rushed to the rescue. 

Wednesday December 15, 2004
Downtown, Underground Sewers, Star City

When the Omegans arrived, they found 4-Star and Lucky trying to cover the escape of the remaining Undergrounders. Half of them had been slaughtered and their leader Mindjack was down. Undergrounders ran from the battle scene in a blind panic towards the Omegans as another group of them tried to leave via an elevator that had shorted out.

Setsuna disintegrated several of the Undergrounders running towards her. The two remaining Undergrounders brought out their Blaster pistols and fired at her but she dodged the energy beams. Ruin used his katana to cut one down and his Vibro saw to cut down the other one. I don't know what possesses Setsuna that she kills our own allies as much as our enemies. 

At least Wheeljack fixed the elevator and saved nine Undergrounders. Of the twenty-five that once used this area as a base, only half remain.

Lucky was severely wounded as he was attacked by G'rok and dog hybrids and the Vibro whip of a V'sori beastmaster. 

Bubbles ran up ahead and fought with Lucky on the front line taking out a dog and G'rok hybrid. 

4-Star and The Blood King tried to fire into the melee but they kept missing.  

A massive G'rok charged ahead at Bubbles and Lucky but tripped on a traffic cone. It stood up from prone and roared its frustration. 

Bubbles fought against the G'rok with a barrage of attacks but missed her last one as her sai sailed out of her hands into a fast moving sewer current. The G'rok was bloodied but still stood. 

The G'rok attacked her back and left her wounded. 

The V'sori beastmaster and remaining dog and G'rok hybrid knocked out Lucky.  

Setsuna used her touch to disintegrate the G'rok but also touched Bubbles in the chest, melting her armor and leaving her paralyzed and twitching on the ground.

"Not so funny when it's happening to you instead of my girls is it!"--Setsuna

The Blood King tried to move into melee but missed its tail attack against the war hound.

Ruin changed into his flame form and unleashed a massive blast of fire energy. Bubbles and Lucky barely survived the intense heat. The Blood King's systems were fried and it fell over. The V'sori beastmaster, dog and G'rok hybrid, Undergrounders caught in the blast, and Mindjack plus their gear were melted instantly.

[Kevin used Bullseye! to double his damage. Lucky's Harder to Kill edge allowed him to survive the intense heat. Bubbles was severely injured because of her weakness to fire.]

Wheeljack gathered parts in the area like Blaster pistols and high tech equipment in the Undergrounder's lair to gain enough scrap to repair The Blood King to operational. 

[McGyver use one for Wheeljack. The use of the Blaster pistols in this allowed The Blood King to keep its weapon operational. ]

Ruin healed Bubbles to consciousness as Lucky regenerated all his wounds. Once Ruin was done healing Bubbles, he got a Medi-Stim from Wheeljack then rigged it to make it a Repair Stim. 

[McGyver use two for Ruin. This one was pretty smart as it allowed a Vigor roll for The Blood King every hour for three hours to repair itself with nanobots. It's a simple trapping change for the Medi-Stim to change it from repair flesh to repair steel.]

4-Star told them that the hybrid monsters seemed to be able to track them based on their super powers. I reminded them if these creatures were not stopped soon, they would soon find Setsuna's lair by simply tracking their super powers.

The elevator was rendered nonoperational by Wheeljack's meddling with the base's systems. So they hoofed it through the sewers, as Wheeljack tracked the steps of the monsters through their steps left in the sludge. 

Wednesday December 15, 2004
Dog Food Cannery, Southpoint, Star City 

They came out of the sewers in the middle of the facility. Drones worked on an assembly line making canned dog food as others guarded the doors. 

Setsuna stole her fusion grenade back from Ruin. Then she placed it next to the boilers before climbing up to the next level. Ruin's danger sense went off and he turned into his wind form to go up the ladder to a higher platform.  The grenade exploded and took out a third of the facility including the platform that Wheeljack and Lucky were standing on. The Blood King grabbed Wheeljack to save him. Lucky plummeted into the sewers when Bubbles refused to grab him and save him from falling.

4-Star climbed down the pipes and walls of the facility and sewer before falling on a slick wall when he had nearly climbed all the way down. He got up and swam to Lucky, managing to get him out of the water and pull him to the shore for CPR to clear his lungs of water. However, Setsuna's folly meant both 4-Star and Lucky were out of the fight. 

[4-Star got a success and then an 11 on one Climbing roll for three successes but failed the last Climbing roll to fall to the sewer floor. Then it took a couple rounds to swim to Lucky but he made it with a round to spare before he could have drowned.]

Bubbles used her rocket boots to get up to the drones at the top of the stairs on the upper platform. She defeated the two drones despite them using their Vibro claws to parry her attacks and trying to slice her open, but it cost her a sai as it flew out of her hand and into the smoldering ruins to the left. The sai melted into the smoking conflagration.  Bubbles then went up to the roof and got into the V'sori Barracuda. She overcame her acrophobia and flew into the facility through the gaping hole in the center of the roof from the explosion. 

Meanwhile, Ruin summoned a whirlwind; a vortex formed inside the building from the hole in the roof.

Wheeljack teleported to the other side of the facility towards the front door and away from the flames. 

The Blood King went to the center of the platform and it grew to full size.

The V'sori scientists unlocked their dog and G'rok specimens as their K'tharen Fin bodyguards tried to secure an avenue to allow them to escape to the roof. The other drones not engaged with Bubbles failed to detect the invisible characters or those on the roof through the smoke. 

[A particularly awful critical failure notice group roll but the result made sense in the situation.]

[Randall played Here Comes the Cavalry.]

Suddenly B-Hold-R launched a sequence of five attacks on a K'tharen bodyguard. A paralyzing tentacle, two swinging tentacles, a bite, and finally an eye laser beam took down the Fin. 

But then the drones and Fins saw B-Hold-R through the invisibility and smoke. A series of swinging Vibro and Fin claws brought him down. The ancient creature cursed in its language and got right back up. 


Setsuna walked down the western stairway and tossed a fusion grenade at the group of enemies. This would have struck B-Hold-R, but it batted the grenade east with its tentacle. 

"@*#$! (^*!) $#+$*%!"--B-Hold-R

[First striked the grenade!]

The fusion grenade blew up most of the Fin bodyguards, as well as two V'sori scientists and specimens.

B-Hold-R stumbled to the east trying to get away.

The V'sori scientists called for reinforcements and went back to release the G'rok. Another V'sori scientist told the drones on the assembly line to stop working and deal with the intruders. 

But then Ruin summoned his whirlwind on top of the conflagration to suck in the flame and smoke from the exploded area before putting it over the enemies as well as B-Hold-R and Setsuna. The cyclone took B-Hold-R down to the pipes below and it bounced on them just before it stabilized and floated just above them. 

Exhausted beyond even his ancient constitution, B-Hold-R stopped moving.

Setsuna jumped down to the pipes and held on for dear life screaming as she saw her decay power starting to erode the pipes she was holding. 

[Bobbie played Out of the Frying Pan to get away from 3d8 x3 fusion grenade damage.]

Ruin's fire cyclone exploded one of the Fin's fusion grenades. The resulting three blasts wiped out all the enemies in the area and blew a hole in the west wall as well as collapsed the center walkway. The center walkway smacked into the pipes below and Setsuna barely held on as the pipes started to bend downward.

The Blood King used its tail to grab B-Hold-R and bring it up to the center platform.

Setsuna decayed the pipe she was holding away but managed to grab onto the next section. She used her legs to straddle the pipe and bent it downward with gravity before swinging herself on top of the pipe. She ran on top of it as it continued to bend downward behind her. She jumped up but missed as she decayed the center railing when she grabbed it. The pipes below were teetering and she was sure to fall if she didn't get up soon.

When Bubbles returned inside the facility she ran over two drones with the V'sori Barracuda.

Wheeljack teleported inside the vehicle to turn the barracuda's heavy laser on the drones.

Ruin moved his cyclone in front of the door of the specimen containment room. The back draft of the cyclone sucked in the last V'sori scientist and threw him back into a cage, breaking his spine. 

The G'rok ran out towards the Omegans ignoring the cyclone.

Wheeljack shot and killed the G'rok before it could reach Ruin.

Bubbles turned the V'sori Barracuda around.

The Blood King grabbed Setsuna by her legs and dragged her up to the center platform. The Blood King dropped her on the ground and then grabbed B-Hold-R to bring its unconscious form into the mech. 

Ruin moved his whirlwind onto the dog food production line. His cyclone took four cans of dog food and turned them into shrapnel, shredding three of the drones.

The last remaining drone destroyed the V'sori Barracuda with his blaster cannon. 

Wheeljack teleported out of the vehicle and shot the last drone with his fusion laser. 

Bubbles used her super speed to get out of the crashing vehicle in time. 

Setsuna tried to grab onto The Blood King but it was too big to decay. The Blood King stomped her unconscious and then grabbed her on Wheeljack's orders.

4-Star and Lucky escaped through the sewers and left to look for the surviving Undergrounders.

The Omegans escaped through the hole in the western wall and returned to their lair to rest.

 XP: 3. Miss XP 2, Minimum XP = Veteran (54) 

Loot: None


Figures and vehicles include those from HeroClix by WizKids and Necessary Evil Figure Flats by Pinnacle Entertainment Group. DramaScape's City Sewers used for Scene 1. The traffic cones are from a police action figure pack I bought at Marcs. DramaScape's Level 1 used for Scene 2. I cut out and put together three of the security X-ray machines from DramaScape's SciFi Floorplan Tiles to make a small assembly line. I also printed out a lab tile from SciFi 6 x 6 Tiles Set 02 for the room containing the Warhounds/G'rok for their cages. Level 1 is an interesting map in that it has a lot of industrial pipes and boilers but the ground floor is relatively empty. So you can fill it as you would like. One suggestion is the Cargo and Containers 3d freebie to fill up the space with crates and containers of the finished industrial product of the facility (making a storage warehouse with plenty of cover). 

Level 1

I got advances for the NPCs here. Lucky got the Jinx power. I grabbed Improved First Strike for B-Hold-R.

Necessary Evil Recap 27

August 19, 2017 @ 1:00-6:00 P.M.

It's been awhile! Busy summer schedules and a need to shift the game to Saturday afternoon made scheduling a nightmare. Hoping to get back to playing this one at least once a month.

Before Game Setup:

Omega Cell 107 Report 27

Wednesday, December 1, 2004-Monday, December 6, 2004
Setsuna's Secret Brothel, Southpoint, Star City 

The Pugilist delivered a message to Ruin.  

"Dear Madame Setsuna,

We are saddened by your choice of some super freak bouncer over our protection. We will no longer be protecting your facility or conducting business at your establishment. Good luck with the dregs. We ever see your bodyguard in our territory again, he is gonna take a nice swim with some great feet accessories.

--Sincerely, The Family."

Ruin showed the letter to Bubbles and Wheeljack but they were disinterested. He shoved the letter under the door to Setsuna's quarters. She was inside her room sleeping off the concussion she had obtained from the concrete blocks that had struck her when Ruin dropped the ceiling onto the Mayor's podium while she was holding him. 

[Bobbie was at another event until late in the session.] 

From my perspective this is very bad. The Family was doing a good job of keeping the secret location of the brothel and keeping the dregs from attacking the building or their clientele. 

Wheeljack headed out to a junkyard and grabbed enough scrap with The Blood King to repair the robot if needed. 

[About one wound's worth of scrap.] 

The rest of the group attempted to train. Bubbles had an accident in the medical training bay and the cleanup took days. 

Wheeljack relaxed and watched some television. On the evening news, he learned that Lucian had been "elected" Star City's new mayor. Getting my double agent into a position of power had required removing the mayor and the legless body of the traitorous V'sori Warlord Darb as proof of Lucian's loyalty to the V'sori. Quite the coup for the Omegan Resistance as we have a double-agent as V'sori puppet. But perhaps he may gain some useful information in the position of toady to the whims of the V'sori even if it is just through surface reading and perhaps altering of minds. 

Tuesday December 7, 2004
Setsuna's Secret Brothel, Southpoint, Star City

I asked Omega Cell 107 to investigate a clandestine V'sori operation off the coast of Labrador in Newfoundland. Find out why the V'sori were dredging the Labrador Sea in that location and preferably capture whatever they were interesting in discovering. In the event of being unable to capture it--destroy it to prevent it falling into enemy hands. 

Tuesday, December 7, 2004
Warehouse 21, The Docks, Star City

At the last submarine pen, Ruin and Wheeljack assembled torpedoes for the Atlantean Seahorse. They then got in the submarine by having The Blood King grab Bubbles and drag her inside due to her claustrophobia and headed northeast to Canadian waters.

Friday, December 10, 2004
Labrador Sea

The Omegans snuck up on two V'sori Mbunas guarding a V'sori Sargasso, tugboat, and a big ice cutter that were pulling up an antique WWII era submarine. The submarine was covered with ice and bore insignia of the Rising Sun. The ocean was covered in ice chunks many of which seemed to have slid off the rising sub.  

Suddenly, Ruin launched a torpedo that sunk the right V'sori Mbuna. Then he launched a second torpedo that struck the old Japanese submarine. Well whatever they were dredging up may be gone, but at least it won't fall into V'sori hands.

The Blood King opened the side door.  

The Gladiator left the Atlantean Seahorse and summoned a whirlwind.     

Bubbles was afraid of the cold waters due to her new cryophobia from being contained within the ice cold submarine and shivering as her claustrophobia continued to play tricks on her. But her claustrophobia was stronger than her fear of the ice cold water. She activated her rockets boots, leaping from icy island to island then she activated her Vibro saw and slashed the left V'sori Mbuna in half. She proceeded to stab her sai into the back of the V'sori Sargasso exposing the engine and then stabbed again with her sai blowing up the engine.

She then sliced through the cutter in a Z-pattern.


As the ships started to sink into the Labrador Sea, a V'sori and two humans escaped the cutter. The humans had costumes. One of them wore a yellow and green suit with a horseshoe emblem on the front and the other one a red, white, and blue suit with four white stars on the front. The Omegans recognized them as 4-Star and Lucky except Bubbles. Wheeljack and Ruin remembered that those super heroes had once fought The Shugenja, a legendary Japanese super-spy, before their disappearance.

Chunky salsa...remnants of the dead of five ships?

Lucky swam towards Bubbles and tried to punch her, but just couldn't reach her.  4-Star struggled to swim and made no progress.

The V'sori flew up from the cold water and formed a force field around 4-Star. Half the remaining V'sori drones cut the tug lines to prevent the tugboat from sinking with the WWII submarine. The other half fired at Bubbles with heat rays but missed.

Wheeljack moved the Atlantean Seahorse forward.   

Ruin left the Atlantean Seahorse and managed to reach the bulwark of the tugboat holding onto the lines that the drones had just cut that were hanging down.

Bubbles hit Lucky with everything she had. Lucky's extraordinary luck allowed him to dodge every hit except the last one when her Vibro saw pierced his super armor. Lucky's eyes went from glazed over to aware and he screamed in pain before plunging into the sea unconscious.

"Lucky...No! You'll die for this Nazi super-agent scum!"--4 Star

Wheeljack maneuvered the ship around the maelstrom. The Blood King did a back flip on top of the Atlantean Seahorse and fired a laser at the V'sori. But 4-Star leapt in front of the attack and absorbed it with his force field! 

[Randall played Villainous Verbosity!] 

The V'sori started to blather about his master plan. 

"I am the extraordinary V'sori Explorer B'loc! I have used my formidable mental powers to control these super heroes sealed in ice for sixty years and will use them to defeat you! You are nothing but Nazi super-agents after all!"--V'sori Explorer B'loc  

"Wait...that's your whole plan?"--Ruin 

The Drones fired at Bubbles again but she dodged them with her super speed. 

The Gladiator moved the maelstrom closer to the tugboat. 

Ruin slashed one of the drones and took it out while holding onto the rope along the bulwark. 

4-Star moved towards Bubbles and unleashed his shooting star attacks on her which she dodged with her super speed.  

Wheeljack accelerated the submarine and sped past 4-Star and Bubbles. His submarine missed the V'sori agent B'loc, but The Blood King was on top of the submarine and smashed into him. B'loc was immediately crushed and fell into the Labrador Sea. 

4-Star was released from B'loc's mind control and Lucky returned to the surface on a chunk of ice unconscious. 

[I rolled Harder to Kill and he got an even roll.]

"'re alive!"--4-Star

The Drones fired at The Gladiator and struck him in the head and leg. He died instantly and the maelstrom that nearly reached the tugboat dissipated. 

Ruin lashed out in anger, levitating the ship with his katana's air power and then slashed it in half while cutting through the remaining three drones.

Wheeljack turned the ship around and rescued Lucky from the iceberg. Wheeljack gave him a Medi-Stim and he quickly regenerated his wounds within half a minute. 

They convinced 4-Star and Lucky that the V'sori were aliens that were aligned with the Axis powers and had descended from the sky shortly after they were frozen. The war had dragged on for over sixty years and most of the Earth was destroyed. 4-Star wept for the world and the decimation of the United States. He vowed to defeat the alien Nazi collaborators with his sidekick Lucky.

[Meanwhile the unfrozen Shugenja had gotten away by using Super Sorcery to become Invisible. When the Omegans left, he changed it to Flight to get to the mainland of Newfoundland and ascertain the truth of what had happened.] 

Monday December 13, 2004
Warehouse 21, The Docks, Star City

The Omegans left the Atlantean Seahorse in Warehouse 21 with no fuel or torpedoes. 

Monday December 13, 2004
Setsuna's Secret Brothel, Southpoint, Star City

The Omegans returned to their lair and 4-Star and Lucky left after being disgusted with the den of iniquity. They had the Pugilist take them to another Omega cell. But the Pugilist had jawed at Lucky and got beat up by his Lucky Strike. When he returned he had been severely wounded. 

Meanwhile, Setsuna read the letter after waking up from her long nap and was furious. She got up and left her room. She decayed her own front door and then touched the back of the Pugilist's head after he had returned to guard the doorway. 

[Bobbie played Angry Mob which brought eight The Family gang members and Shaking in their Boots which made everyone Shaken after she melted the skull and brain of the Pugilist.]

This disgusted the eight The Family gang members who had been sent to kill The Pugilist. 

"You one of those super freaks too Madame Setsuna?! Looks like we are gonna have to kill you and take over this valuable property and business!"--The Family ganger

"Nope. You are gonna leave here and tell your boss that I killed The Pugilist and fixed the problem. Here take his body."--Setsuna 

"Do you want to die? Didn't you see what she just did to that guy's skull?"--Ruin

The Family ganger was persuaded and intimidated to go along with the plan. But the other seven gangers were not having any of it. 

"Kill all these freaks and that traitor too!"--The Family gangers 

Bubbles activated her rocket boots and dropped four of them with a series of sai and Vibro saw attacks. 

Ruin turned into his fire form and burned away the last three gangers. 

"So you are gonna tell your boss that your gang and I killed the Pugilist but it cost him seven gang members. Only you survived. Take the body as a token of my apology to The Family's leader. Tell him about us being supers and we will find you and we will kill you too."--Setsuna. 

[This second scene was cool because it gave Bobbie something to do when she showed up for the last thirty minutes of the session.]

Well hopefully that solves The Family problem and restores the status quo of their business arrangement. Somehow I doubt it though.

I added Great Luck and Harder to Kill to Lucky. The other thing I'll add after an advance is Jinx which should be fun (which causes attacks against Lucky to go awry). 

For the frozen waters of the Labrador Sea I made it into a 2d6 ice damage field if they ended their turn in the cold waters. This would have been a great battlefield for Siberian to fight on if he were still alive.
