Aeon B- Team Season 6 - Session 10



  • Amar Gupta aka The Iron Sikh (played by Christian): Brick. Taxi Driver. Ass-Kicker. Sikh. Tagline: “Being a man of faith means to live it.”
  • Amie-Belle T. W. Lee aka Whisper (Played by Curtis): Cold War era super-soldier/spy that got put in the Freezer, because she got poisoned. After getting thawed out and cured she tried to back to work, and was given an “adjustment period”. Uncle Sam called 2 years later, with work… because once you’re in, you’re in for life. Tagline: “In and out without a whisper.”
  • Beauregard K. “Bo” Ratnam aka Wirerat (Played by Brice): Technopath, inventor, and hacker. He specializes in co-opting enemy systems and tech assets. Tagline: “Nice tech – I’ll borrow that.”
  • Rafe Hanlon aka Nyx (played by Chris D.): An umbrakinetic petty thief still on work release several years later, on his way to becoming a true agent and hero. Tagline: “We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.”
  • Vincenzo L. dePrezzo aka Threshold (Played by Rory): Doctor, Mathematician, and Scientist (yes, capitals) and Spatial Manipulator. Threshold can bend space like a pretzel, teleport, obliterate things, and has extraordinary senses. He’d rather be in a research lab than fight. Better known for his work with Doctors Without Borders, the United Nations, and disaster relief than famous battles. Tagline: “I can be there in a snap!”Derrick K. Ratnam aka Ledgerdemain (NPC Ally): Spin doctor and media liaison for Project VANGUARD. Twin to Bo. Tagline: “Well, actually that’s not how it happened…
    • Jodie R. Swann aka Surferboy (NPC): Dude. Aero- and Hydrokinetic. Really laid back, but wants to make a difference. Has a advanced glider/drone he rides on. Tagline: “Like. Let’s just chill, dude.”
    • Layla A. de Blackburn aka Nox (NPC): CIA-trained child assassin all grown up to be Daddy’s Little Monster. Maybe a little mad. Argues with her shadow often. Tagline: “No, we shouldn’t do that…should we?”
    • Stainless Steel Rat aka “Sir” (NPC Ally): Bo’s best friend and assistant. A sentient drone in the shape of a stylized shiny metal rat mindlinked to Bo. Specialties are rapid repair construction and modifications. Imagine if K-9 and R2D2 made a baby and it looks a bit like a rodent. Tagline: “Repairs and upgrades in progress”
    • Tierney M. Ward aka Rush (NPC): Speedster and former member of the Bullet Hell Brigade. Tagline: “Was that fast? I thought that was fast.”
    • Zubayr Sajjad Marou aka Five Stars (NPC): Driver. Pilot. Klubbe gig worker.. From N’Djamena, Chad. Used to go by Darryl Bell to sound more American. Tagline: “I can get you there in time.”

Lynch's Secret

The team decides to see Lynch again, Whisper made him a nice cake.
Lynch seems to still be fine with his confinement, though Threshold has no idea why and Wirerat suspects Lynch has stuff to hide. We talk briefly and he says something to Nyx.

Afterwards the team decides to check out the hospital, its been abandoned and Threshold portals everyone over so as to reduce our trail Wirerat spoofs Nyx'es tracking bracelet. After a though search we find a secret room with a faraday cage and lots of papers and other documents. Everything is stored in older technology, no computers - instead paper and microfiche with some audio cassettes.
One tape is addressed to Nyx and listened to privately. One wall holds a murder board style of notes regarding the Black Swan event. The team spends a few hours going over things then most head back to base, Threshold overcome with curiosity staying behind until well after midnight. Copious notes are taken and papers read and Threshold decides to come bak later with old time cameras to avoid digital tracking.

At the base everyone gets the news that I-MAPS is being shut down  NDAs are signed and a generous severance package offered to those not going back to jail.


It was a short session, the GM opted to wrap up the season as we really had closed up most of the major plot threads and discussed the next season. When we pick up, 10 months later Senator Callahan will be President Callahan and things could start turning around for the metahuman community. I-Maps will still be gone but NYC will have its more limited MAPS program and the season will be more locally focused and the intent is for us to deal with more traditional super heroics rather than some of the espionage we were involved in.

Threshold has done his season upgrades, boosted his Warp a bit, payed for some Patrons with powered by character points, and upgraded several skills.
He also added Gadgeteer with limited Quick Gadgeteer (Medical) powered by character points. We already had a gadgeteer in Wirerat, but this allows the two to work better together with Threshold offering support.  Threshold also is better at making drugs or working on medical related tech.
