Season 7 Session 10 & 11 End of Season!



  • 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.
    • 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”
    • 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.
  • 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.”
    • 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?”
    • June B. O'Neill aka Prodigy (NPC): Savant with hyper-intelligence that may have cracked the universal power-dampening conundrum. Fresh out of the Meraki Institute for the advanced and gifted. Extremely intelligent, but young (she's 16).
  • 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!”
    • Nawang Sonam aka Wan Shi Tong (NPC): Martial Artist with a mysterious past. Thresholds mentor, experienced and highly capable, indeterminate age.
  • Eleanor C. Bulli aka "Bubbles (NPC): Manipulates bubbles of energy, short range teleportation, can fly on the bubbles, use them for shields or attack and even see through them.
  • Grant L. Wojcik aka Fridge Boy (NPC): Can control ice/cold, but mostly the ability to create ice that explodes. 16 year old emancipated orphan, Our janitor. 
  • Rudy A. Coldwater aka Gimmick (NPC): Mildly hyper-intelligent savant. Stutters. Makes very accurate guesses. Typical nerd, not yet 20. Wants to make a difference, assigned to support duties.
  • Summer Stratos aka Chain Jacket (NPC): Ferrokinetic
  • Vargas Manwell Tilium aka "Impulse" (NPC): Speedster.
Dates: Thursday May 7th?
Sessions combined as Session 10 was very short due to bad internet issues.

The Big Reveal

We did some tidying up and trying to figure out where to go next. We had a few leads yet to follow but nothing really panned out.  Then Threshold gets a massive headache and we hear an explosion and Session 10 ended.
Session 11 we pick up with a fight. The news tells us of three explosions and we head to the one in our jurisdiction using Thresholds portal.

Threshold, Nyx, Nox, Whisper, SSR, and Wirerat all get involved. We see a young woman, Lindy McCall surrounded by a couple of cats and rats.
Also a big hole in the ground with what looks like Threshold's obliteration beam coming out of it.
We quickly deduce that the animals are fracture clones with the powers of various metas. Perhaps a bit more quickly due to the names of the tokens ;)
Space Cat is a copy of Threshold
Wire Cat is a copy of Wirerat.
Gemini a brick and associate of Fracture (her brother) is there in rat form, as is Fracture.
The rest of our team apparently did not get copied, nor the honor of being cloned as a cat.
We are in a construction site.


Nyx teleports under a nearby construction office. Nox teleports closer and behind the enemy on the ground. Whisper runs towards them. Wirerat scans the area nd gets his brain fried for his trouble (again). Threshold tries to obliterate Space Cat as he is off by himself and near the big hole in the ground.
Space Cat teleports away and Nox squeeks about Threshold trying to disintegrate her.
Fracture Rat makes another Gemini Rat and both of them attack Whisper.
Lindy exclaims how Threshold will now regret what he did to her father, Threshold has no clue what she is talking about, this does not go over well. (crit failed his IQ roll to recognize her)
Nyx binds Fracture Rat in darkness.
Space Cat gets Fracture Rat out of the darkness by exporting her (GM pointedly points this trick out to Thresholds player).
Hey Export is expensive!
Threshold uses his Create Singularity to try and take out Fracture Rat and make life rough for the Gemini Rats.
Our Face of Darkness (Nyx) taunts Space Cat using his clairsentience with speaking power and knocks out Lindy with Draining Touch.
Whisper enjoys herself fighting the Gemini Fractures, tossing one into the singularity and watching one miss a slam and run into the hole..
Threshold uses his Spatiokenesis Control power to try and lockdown Spacecats powers, hoping the cat has all his power but not much of his skill.
SSR tazes Space Cat who can't teleport away.

There is a big boom and the hole stops glowing. We look down into it and see a big sphere that Whisper picks up and opens up and it has a Threshold head strapped into a wire harness. Threshold says to kill it and put it out of its misery.
We hear from the radios that there is a massive breakout at Rikers Island and the session ends there.


This is the end of the season and so we get to spend some of our saved CP on upgrades and given the option to pick up a few hours later or a few weeks later. We opt for a few hours.
Were called to MAPS HQ to get briefed on what happened and keep Lindy as a prisoner and Nyx seems to have charmed Space Cat. Our Face of Darkness may add another villain to his retinue of converts/conscripts.
