Session write ups of Legacy, play test

Post by kevinrolfe on Wed Apr 04, 2012 7:32 am

This took place midway through last year, with a group of old D&Ders, there were between 8 and 10 players at any one time, we got through 7 sessions, before we called it a day.

Session 1

The United Kingdom 2012.
The Team: “The Champs”
Damon James aka Blur
Abraham Strong aka Pyrotechnic
John Tower aka Yeoman
Cassie Walker aka Nightstalker
Kirsten Hall aka Corona
Adam Rice aka Hedghog
[Eric Blake aka Blackstar]

As individual heroes you are all rookies, just starting out, having grown up of tales of daring do and of Heroes long gone, you choose to walk the same path, on the shoulders of giants.
The call came out of the blue the phone rang, number withheld and an English accent with a hint of Provence in the voice, “My name is Commander Philippe Longchamps, i work for MI6, I’m putting a team together. And i would like you to be in it”
You were taken aback but finally agreed to meet in a warehouse in East Croydon next to the railway station. In side were Longchamps and some others, Longchamps supplied you with a massive salary, Smart phones a list of contacts/Informants and a supped up vehicle, a Mitsubishi Deilca [Space Gear] a 7 seater 4x4, a mini monster truck it is armoured and total out of place.
After leaving in his Audi A5 Abraham [Pyrotechnic] suggested returning to his townhouse [and secret lab] in Kenly to “Bond”. Cassie [De facto leader] got a little drunk and went climbing the outside and the rest contacted various Snouts and check the contents of your bank accounts.
First Contact.
Craig Tucker called to tip the team off. There was a big heroin deal going down in Soho, the Fu Yen Wok. Corona, Pyrotechnic & Nightstalker went for some reconnaissance, Cassie and Abraham inside and Corona outside, this did not go according to plan, Cassie’s attempt to looki inthe office failed and she broke her shoe, staff in the restaurant became suspicious as Nightstalker visited the toilet 3 times, it was pointed out to Abrham that she was possibly a little drunk. NIghtstaker opened the toilet window and damaged the ball cock in the hope the toilet would be out of action the following night. Corona [out of costume] wandered into the gated rear of the restaurant and was asked to leave after he photo was taken.
The following night Adam Rice [Hedghog] and Kristen Hall [Corona] who had reservations. Entered the restaurant and sat down.
End of session
BlackStar was there at the Warehouse but will only take part if another player turns up.
Also each player can have a flashback scene in lieu of not “origin”, if they wish at some point.

Session 2
The United Kingdom 2012.
The Team: “The Champs”
Damon James aka Blur
Abraham Strong aka Pyrotechnic
John Tower aka Yeoman
Cassie Walker aka Nightstalker
Kirsten Hall aka Corona
Adam Rice aka Hedghog
Eric Blake aka Blackstar
XXX XXX aka Whitestar

Mmm where to start!
Last night Nightstalker left the window open of the Fu Yen Wok. Tonight the team return tooled up for a Heroin bust.
But the events on the ground changed things.
Last night
A replica Spanish Galleon sailing in to London, it had Duke of Edinburgh award logo and flags, on board were Mercs, Supervillian Mercs. Their mission to extract Tony Tate, a big time East End Mobster. Ther plan was simple get in and out fast. Use Shadow dancer to grab Tony and teleport him to the Galleon. However during their recon, they found that someone had left the restaurant toilet window open. So they installed MR SMASH inside in the false ceiling. They then stole an Intaflora van as waited.
Ambush.
despite leaving the Loo window open none of the Heroes used it. Instead Hedgehog and Corona in plain clothes went inside. Blackstar and Whitestar were in the air, Blur hidden around the corner, Pyrotechnic was in the Van (with his seatbelt on), Yeoman was on the Fire escape and NIghtstalker crawling in the Air vents on the roof.
Then it happened, the US Merc team got the drop on “The Champs” and MR SMASH dropped from the ceiling onto Tony Tates table and made a grab for him, The Galleon flew (yes flew, it is a old Movie prop with 2 US Harrier Jump jet Engines built in) from its hiding place behind nearby skyscrapers. The Pirate and Shadow Dancer jumped onto the roof with shaped charges enabling them to drop straight through in the first floor of the Fu Yen Wok, outside Vendetta and Torpedo crash through the front door and window.
The Champs won initiative and acted first. Corona dive bombed Shadow dancer, Nightcrawler crawled through the air vents, Blackstar flew in after Corona who had missed shadow dancer and took out the rear wall, Whitestar dive bombed Vendetta (and missed), Hedgehog held his action, Blur ran to Vendetta hit him then ran off. Yeoman jumped in to the hole created by the Pirates shaped charge. Pyrotechnic, er sort of fell out of the van with the seatbelt still on.
Shadow Dancer teleported nearer to Tony hoping to grab him and teleport out, MR SMASH grappled Tate. The Pirate began to enter the main restaurant, Vendetta turned to chase after Blur as he had hit him from behind twice, Torpedo, got hit by Pyrotecnic and was killed, Hedgehog hit fell down the stairs the hit and killed Shadow dancer and the Pirate was captured by Yeoman. MRSMASH tried to escape with tony only to be grabed by Corona, only to have their Mass increased to 1 ton by Blackstar, they crashed through the floor down to the ground. Nightstalkerr beat the lowly owner to unconscious (nice). The battle continued Pyro threw a van into Vendetta, Whitestar blew up MR SMASH. And Yeoman flew The Pirate out and into protective custody, (eventually). Blackstar and Corona flew off to capture the Galleon and Blur rang Longchamps, who was watching the events live on BBC News24, Longchamps indiated they must have been set up as Blackstar and Corona dropped off the Ship outside the MI6 building.
Then the restaurant collapsed, luckily everyone got out including Nightstalker and the Fu Yen Woks main computer (which was in Manderin). Whitestar took the unconscious Tony Tate and dumped him in Lewisham. And the rest of the team returned to Kenly. To er plan!
They decided to visit Craig Tucker the Snout who set them up, he lives in New Addington in Croydon. Once there Nightstalker (remembering she was in charge) went up to his flat on the 6th floor as whitestar landed on the roof. Inside the a appaerment they found a long dead tucker a gun in a box with Sarah Hatheringtons photo and a not saying kill the bitch. The TV was on and it was the News.
‘...Has been named as John Douglas, scientists suggest that the large Hadron Collider will take18 months to repair, in other news the Finance Ministers from all of the G20 countries arrived in Britain today for a summit meeting at picturesque Farnsworth Hall in Kent.' (Picture cuts to view of large black limousines arriving at the Hall through a crowd of anti-capitalist protestors, and disgorging smiling politicians.) 'The main topic on the agenda is likely to be the state of the Global recovery’

(Cut back to studio)
There has been a breakout from HM Dartmoor Prison. Thomas 'Slugger' Mitchell, the former World Heavyweight boxing champion, escaped from his maximum security cell in the early hours of this morning. The prison authorities have yet to make an official statement about the breakout, but it is believed that Mitchell had outside assistance, The Police have warned the public that Mitchell is dangerous and should not be approached. The Home Secretary says that he does not believe it necessary to launch and special military operation to recapture Mitchell as his powers, although much greater those of a normal man, are not sufficient to pose any great challenge to the Police. However, the Hon Quinton fForbes-Bryson MP, has renewed his call for the introduction of the death penalty for convicted so-called 'super-villains'. We have an exclusive interview with Mr fForbes-Bryson later in the programme.

'A man and two women were arrested in Wolverhampton this morning as they sought to block the main Birmingham-to-Edinburgh railway line, in protest against the alleged shipment of nuclear waste through the city. The protestors, all members of the environmental pressure group Green World, maintained that dangerous radioactive material is regularly shipped right through the centre of Birmingham. Furthermore, they claimed that they had received information that such a shipment is due to be made later today. A spokesman for the UKAEA (United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority) categorically denied that nuclear waste has ever been moved through any urban areas, and stated that it has no intention of doing so in the future.

'Twenty people, four of which were police officers, were injured when Chelsea fans rioted after their team was beaten 2-0 by Crawley Town in their FA Cup Quarter-Final replay last night.
Fourteen people were arrested, Crawley Town go on to play Arsenal in the Semi-Final'.
(Cut to interview room.)
'We now turn to our pre-recorded interview with the Honorable Quinton fForbes-Bryson, MP. Mr fForbes-Bryson, would you care to explain to us just why you believe the death penalty should be introduced for so-called 'super-villains', regardless of the nature of their offences?'

'Thank you Geoffrey. Could I start by saying that in no way do I wish to be associated with the current wave of anti-‘mutant' hysteria that is sweeping the United States. Many of the super powered people are a great benefit to the community, or at lest keep themselves to themselves like any other good citizen. However, when these people do step beyond the bounds of the law we face a very serious problem. Our Police and Armed Forces face very real danger in attempting to apprehend such people and simply confining them securely for the duration of their sentences is enormously expensive and places an excessive strain on our already overworked prison services. Such people pose an extreme threat to Society as a whole and I am sorry to say that Society must take equally drastic measures in order to defend itself.'

'But Mr fForbes-Bryson, how can you justify such a severe penalty for any major offence. Surely the punishment... ah, excuse me, sir; we are going live to our reporter Simon Morton, outside Farnsworth Hall, where unusual events are taking place. Simon, what is happening over there?'

(Cut to picture of slightly ragged and breathless reporter at Farnsworth Hall. Sound of explosions in Background.) 'Well Geoffrey, as you can probably hear, the Hall is actually under attack. Just a few moments ago a group of costumed, super-power people appeared out of nowhere and began to attack the Hall. From where I am standing I can see policemen and DICE soldiers defending themselves against a man with what i think is a laser rifle, It is believed that the G20 Finance Ministers are trapped inside the Hall, and UNNGH!...'

(Morton collapses unconscious and a super villian appears in front of the camera. He begins a long speech, during which he demands a 5 billion pound ransom for the release of the Ministers.

The Session ended.
Next time.. The Lancelot Caper

Session 3
The Lancelot Caper.

Keep running, keep running, city to city
Even if you're innocent,
You can cause too much embarrassment
And though your heart is aching,
And you know there's no mistaking.
Cos you feel your life line breaking
You can feel your hands are shaking
And no-one answers the telephone
You can never never ever go home alone
And though your heart is aching
And you know there's no mistaking
The footsteps close behind.
Genesis, Just a job to do.

Location, New Addington, South Croydon, the flat of Craig Tucker. Midnight.

The news footage shows an assault on the G20 meeting (which is being held very late?), there are anti-Capitalist protestors, Anarchists, Anti-Cuts protestors and explosions before a powered armoured Russian speaking Supervillian announces that the international Anti-Capitalist super group P.A.L.E.T have taken hostages. The Crowd go wild. The BBC crew are forced to continue to broadcast as P.A.L.E.T make their demands, which boil down to 1 billion pounds cash or Barer bonds.
The team decide to split up, half take the 4x4 and the remainder go for the Sky Galleon in the Thames. Rendezvous Farnsworth Hall, home of Lady Sarah Hatheringdon.
The second Assault on Farnsworth Hall.
The Sky Galleon had no problem flying around the parameter to check out the area, the 4x4 had a little trouble at the police cordon. Colonel Avril Hansen D.I.C.E, intervened as the other option was Brian Garsen of Startech wanted to send in Delta Force. This was Colonel Hansen first real test. She took a chance and allowed the Superheroes to go in. Meanwhile Yeoman was busy on the roof opening a sky light.
Nightstalker went in first, but was accosted by a shadowy figure, who before her very eyes turned from Phillipe Longchamps to Craig Tucker then to Nightstalker dumping the real Nightstalker in to a chest in a spare room. The New Nightstalker retuned to let the team know where the bad guys were.
Yeoman and the other flyers went in through the sky light, the others in through the front door.
The Heroes having the drop on P.A.L.E.T burst through in to the main ballroom and took on the villain head on. Blur took the opportunity to grab hostages and take then outside starting with Lady Sarah Hathringdon, who told D.I.C.E that they were in trouble and needed help. Colonel authorised the experimental suit of Lancelot Armour to be sent in.
Blackstar and Whitestar took on Agent Orange and his deadly gas, Yeoman tried to take on Agent Emerald a large Ape, who ran off to save Agent Ruby who was being attacked by Pyrotechnic, the murderous Hedgehog took on Agent Brown leaving Nightstalker to take on Agent Silver. Combat was over in a flash. The Ape fell through the floor after being made heavy by Whitestar. Hedgehog killed Agent Brown and Pyrotechnic threw Agent Ruby down the hole made by the 2 ton Ape. Agent Sliver and Orange were rendered unconscious. As was the Ape when Yoeman dived ontop of him. Agents Ruby and Brown died. However just before this the Lancelot Armour entered the fight only to be met by Nightstalker who put her arm around him and teleported away.

Aftermath.

The Chumps who only yesterday were responsible for the destruction of a Soho restaurant, were at it again, after releasing the G20 finance ministers they managed to kill two suspects and steal the new experimental armour which was being developed as a replacement for Strikeforce. These so called heroes have vanished. But not before one of their number stole the Lancelot Armour, The stolen armour was later used in an audacious theft of a Nuclear warhead. Police are investigating, and we understand COBRA has put Strikeforce on stand by.

In other news Bolskine Manor has finally been sold to business man Jonathan Richardson, the House one home to Aleister Crowley and later Jimmy Page, is situated on loch Ness. Richardson who is known for his fundraising for “Green World” the Eco pressure group, joked with journalist early saying how he was going to “dig in the cellar” so see what dark secrets Crowley had buried there.

With their phones cut off, no money in the bank, their MI6 contact nothing but a myth, they are alone and flying a 400ton flying Galleon.

What next?

A stolen Nuke, a stolen suit of Armour destine for the SAS, Oh dear...

Snippets of information.

P.AL.E.T are 7 strong 5 were taken out in the house. A simple Internet search reveals this.
Agents Orange/Brown/Ruby/Emerald/Silver was present as was a female Agent Azure? Missing was the leader Agent Black.
Then there was Technon, the American who seems to have access to a Delta Force strike team.

Things look bad.

The TV cuts to Police forensic teams dusting the Heroes Van for Prints. The Number plate will be run through the databases. A concerned citizen will ring during the following day to tell the police that that van was parked outside a town house in Kenly.

Oh dear...

Next Episode. The Dummies Guide to Clearing your name.

Session 4
The Lancelot Caper meets Strikeback

3:00 am Location somewhere in the air in Kent, on the as yet unnamed Champ mobile flying Galleon.

The group had found themselves in two groups either side of the ship, and before the Heroes could even take time to think, two things happened. Pyrotechnics’ personal phone rang a female voice offered the team 8 Million to break out the Fraternity from Bedlham and Technon in PALET’s repulsine powered flying car came along side and hailed the ship requesting permission to board.

Yeoman grabbed Pyrotechnics phone and threw it overboard. Technon explaind that he had seen the CCTV and confirmed the PC were not guilty, he also had some information about PALETS hideout.
As protection Technon used 3 Lodestones which were balls of Nanotechnology they rolled on deck creating 3 robots which simply dissolved on command.

BUT..... as the team were discussing what to do a strange blue (Sliver) globe appeared in the centre of the deck. All the characters 'hear' a telepathic voice say:

'I am unit fifty-four BG. Good-day. Please stand by for an important announcement.' After a few seconds a different 'voice' is heard, apparently that of mature woman. 'Please don't be alarmed. This box is an organic computer and time machine. I am recording this message in our year 3936 - by your reckoning, 8457 AD. Our civilisation is fighting for its survival, against a creature of Shadows determined to extinguish all life. A year ago we discovered a time travel technique, which brought most of our recent victories, but the enemy captured a machine and duplicated our method. We have detected an enemy robot travelling down when past your era, and believe it terminated in the recent past, probably at the end of your last century. Our machines are capable of such a journey, but no human could withstand the contra-evolutionary pressure it would entail. A mindless ape would reach the nineteenth century. However, if you were to accept this mission the short journey would involve only a little discomfort. We cannot tell what the enemy intend but suspect some subtle interference with human evolution or progress.

If you wish to help us the computer will control your passage to the nineteenth century, and help locate and destroy our enemy. Remember, the fate of your own era may be at stake, as well as ours.'
A second later a 4' tall image of a cartoon mouse appears by the box, dressed in a super-costume and cloak. It says 'Hi again - I'm unit fifty-four, but please call me Benjy. I hope we're going to enjoy working together. As soon as you're ready I'll start the time jump.'

Before the team could say yes or no it made the jump, back in time...


12:10 location some woods in Vienna the Year 1899.
The team arrive in the Year 1899, to the sound of a fight, through the trees they see three men assaulting a chap in a deer stalker, close by is a Ghost and a floating brain in a clockwork device, it turn and speaks, “your late, you should have been here 10 minutes ago”.
The team quickly dispatched the three thugs to discover that the Clockwork floating brain was the Clockwork Ouroboros, none other than Charles Babbage, the Ghost his faithful assistant. He introduced the man in the Hat as Altamont who was investigating the disappearance of some scientists from the Vienna institute, Babbage on the other hand is looking for clues relating to the Merthyr Tydfil incident, he has been sent by Her Majesty Queen Victoria.
(Benji also explains that the Shadow creature that was trapped in Shadow dancer ecsaped its hostd (by Hedgehog killing the host) and found its way to Porton Down where it released its sister trapped for hundreds of years in The Maid of Orleans. Strikeforce took on both of the creatures but were pushed back, they detonated a Doomsday device a small Tachyon bomb which threw the demons forward 6,500 years, somehow splicing them together in the process.)
There investigation has led then to the Illuminati, it was where Altmont was heading before he met Babbage and was ambushed. The team discovered the existence of the Anachronic man who is also known as Doctor Moses, he has some control over time it seems, and has something to do with the Paradox created in 1897???
Just then 2 large Golems and a man in Steampowered armour stepped into the grove, in the battled which ensued The Golems seemed only interested in killing Altamont. Nightstalker kept him safe whilst the rest of the team too pot shots at the two Golems, Yeoman grabbed the Power armour and took him up 75 meters before dropping him (before he did this he fired his weapon and missed hitting Benji almost destroying the only way home). Yeomen was then grabbed by a Golem and thrown at Altamont who dodged, Hedgehog and Blur made some attempts to wear down the Golem but it was left to Blackstar, Whitestar and Corona to do the real damage, though Nightstalker did the knockout blow on one. Yeoman fresh from his “tossing” attacked the remaining Golem knocking it over, unfortunately the golem hit Yeoman and after a successful parry nearly killed him, he was rendered unconscious. The remaining team members quickly dispatched the Golem.
Whitestar examined the downed suit of steam armour only to discover a scrap of paper which was in German, there were orders to go to Schloss Frankenstein.
The adventure ended
Next session the Heroes must rest as the have been awake for almost 24 hours solid and been in a number of big fights.

Interlude. (if you wish)
Altamont has a carriage parked nearby as has Babbage between them they can take the entire team. The horse drawn carriages will take the team to the guest rooms that Altamont has, where his companion a Dr Smith is waiting having just arrived from England. The team rests and awake fully refreshed the following morning ready for the trip to Schloss Frankenstein, Altmont and Babbage have been to the Vienna Illuminati HQ whilst the team slept and discovered that all roads lead to Frankenstein’s Castle.
The trip to the outskirts of the castle are uneventful you arrive at an Inn on the village at noon, where we will pick up the next session.

If you can return from the past i will allow an upgrade to one power.

Session 5
Session 5: Short and sweet

The Villa Sonnhof at Kaltenleutgeben,
The PC's have been taken by horse drawn carriage's to the villa the Man calling himself Atlenburg, he says he has a doctor friend there. And true to his word there is a doctor at the villa who tends to your wounds.
After a good nights sleep the Heroes decide prepare to travel to Schloss Frankenstein. Atlamont informed the group that he had a contact nearby a Professor Van Helsing, who was staying at the "Slaughtered Lamb" (where else).
The team left straight away, it took around 9 Hours.

The Slaughtered Lamb Inn near Schloss Frankenstein.
They met Van Helsing inside the Inn where Rooms were in place for the heroes as arrived, some of the Heroes went to there rooms and others stayed in the main hall where they over heard Altmont and Van Helsing discuss Vampires... Nightstalker immediately raided the kitchens for Garlic (she only managed a single sprig). Van Helsing was able to tell the team that they had two options. a frontal assult on the Castle or through a culvert in a nearby Farm, Where a Doctor Corday was staying.

The Team decided to take the Farm option.

The Farm.
It was darker when they arrived, there were 5 buildings and a small Tower on a nearby Hill.
As they reached the stone path leading into the farm they could make out some movement from one of the buildings. looking closer it seems as if there was 3 to 5 creatures on all fours dragging something heavy, in the distance wolves to the moon. The beasts drop there prey and howl back, the prey moves little"

The prey was a horse,

"The farmyard was deserted the four out buildings are untouched but the farmhouse's door is hanging off its hinges. As you look at the farm house something dark and large runs from behind the barn on the right, and jumps down the well disturbing the bats that seem to be taking shelter in the over hang

In hind sight the thing that jumped down the well was a vampire which simple shape shifted into a bat.

The Heroes visited each building finding some signs of demonic worship and some sweating horses. they then moved on to the farm where they found Blood and death. they also found a small girl who had been struck dumb. the girl was sent off with Altmont and Van Helsing as the team climbed the small hill to the tower.

Below the tower.
there was a shaft in the tower which lead down in to some kind of Dungeon. where they found the corpses of Gypsys, food for the Master!

In the Main chamber they found him, Count Dracula and his three Brides. the heroes attacked.
the prolonged battle ended with the 4 Vampires being dispatched with stakes made from the Vampires coffin.

Beyond the Culvert...Session 6.

Notes
Magda Slozeny, was kidnapped by Frankenstein for some unknown reason, from the Count.

Session 6 will end with a trip back to the Future. then a week off and back to the Lancelot caper.

Session 6
Session 6 “Through the Culvert”

After dispatching the swarm of vampires the heroes made their way through the dark looking Culvert Van Helsing had talked about.

In single file they crept, they listened, they planned, they just kicked the culvert gate open and charged into the laboratory of Doctor Frankenstein, the doctor two monsters and Igor, stood against the team who in keeping with their current ethos, attacked.

Igor replicated himself but proved to be no match neither did the glass jawed Doctor. The Monster was caught off guard and was taken out by Yeoman, Hedgehog decided laying down on the job was the best option, despite getting kicked in the head. After The Monster, Yeoman tried his hand at the Bride of the Monster however he picked her upside down only to have her bite his manhood twice.
With the battle over and the few prisoners the found released they followed Benjis lead and found a Fully operational death star, sorry sub.
The fight to get into the sub was relatively easy as the heroes distracted the guard as another flew into the sub. The rest of the team followed to find it lightly guarded, but full of solar radiation.
The central room had the machine a metal tetrahedron with tentacles; in the power room a floating lead ball was found. Benji announced he would need some time to cross triangulate the time lines to locate the entry point for the machine. If the heroes could just keep it busy. The battle was going well when the team split the metal “suit” of the machine to reveal a fleshy tentacle terror beneath, before it could unleash its full power The little blue robot returned, before Benji could time jump the group away White Star pulled free the lead ball which spoke to him, direct into his mind, it said “Help Me” in a female voice. Before he could do anything Benji had time jumped the team back to 1872 close to the limit of human time travel.

The team find themselves on board the Mary Celeste, Captain Briggs met the team with his side arm raised and requested they explain who they were, just then the Machine made is first jump into the past. The closeness of the two time jumps caused a ripple in the time stream destroying the Captain and Crew of the Ship.
End of Session.

Session 7....Back to the Future

Session 7
Session 7: Back to the Future.

The ship oscillated on the sea as a deathly silence crept over the barnacled hull and into the blue glow of the ship’s hull. Yeoman and Hedgehog collapsed on the deck tired and done in. Whitestar and Nightstalker explored the ship and discovered 11 barrels of Gun power, the ship sailed with the wind and turned changing direction before the heroes where ready to take on the Machine.

The battle with the Machine was quick an improvised Gatling cannon and some precision strikes from Hedgehog dispatched the beast, Whitestar once again finding its soft spot disabling its main attack.
Benji his mission complete time jumped back to the deck of the flying galleon about a second after they left. Whitestar leaped overboard to reclaim Pyrotechnics falling Phone. And Benji returned with a name “Ullapool” in response to Nightstalkers question where is Chameleon.
At this moment the team discover they have increased powers, and in reflection are missing a minuets or two from between the time on the Mary Celeste and now. Yoeman watch seems to have advance 10 minuets, 10 un accounted for minuets.

Full power to Ullapool.
The flight to Ullapool took 4 hours partly because the lack of maps of Scotland, Meanwhile Technon was hunting Agents Black and Azure.
The team took the pragmatic view to go in quietly so they left the Ship (Which needs a name) and fly down to the out skirts of town where Corona picked up some residual traces of Radioactivity leading into town and the truck on the jetty where two figures stood. As they got closer they realised Longchamps was driving the truck and the Lancelot armour was on the jetty with possible Agent Black.
Without worrying about their own safety the team attacked, but as they got close Chameleon/Longchamps noticed them and raised the alarm calling forth the Ubermensch, and teleporting to the side of Agent Black just as Hedgehog leaped into melee with the Lancelot Armour however Longchamps took the full power of the attack knocking him to the ground almost killing him in one attack. The villains were taken off guard and dispatched very quickly...too quickly! The Ubermench rose from the sea a massive giant or a creature, Night stalker by this point had reached the Truck with the stolen war heads and driven off. Whitestar discovered the Creature absorbed his energy attacks so switched, along side Corona, to Mass variation. the creature blacked out and all 4 tones of it crashed into the sea just missing Hedgehog who for a moment thought he could take on the beast. The creature drowned.

Aftermath,
The Warheads were loaded on board the Flying galleon and the team headed south. Technon contacted the group to inform them that he had located Agent Azure and PALETS secret base in London. To celebrate he was throwing a secret “Party” on the top floor of the “One Canada Square” building in Canary Wharf.

Play test ended

It went well lots of good ideas came from the test, the number of players stretched things a bit. Each of the RPG stereotypes was represented.
It allowed me to enhance some encounters and to give options for upgrading parts to beef things up.
The team went through Peking duck – Lancelot Caper and Strikeback. We suffered from a few too many bank holidays and a couple of car breakdowns. Which hampered things a little.
If I were to do it again I would include session write ups for everyone involved to read at the beginning of each session, as only a couple of people signed up to the web site.
Legacy is the published scenarios brought together to create a campaign.
Book 1 Peking Duck – Lancelot Caper – Legacy of Eagles (Strickeback)
Book2 Crossfire,Reunion, The American dream, Contagion, Coincidence & Confusion Queen Victoria & Holy Grail.
Book3 the final battles with the overarching villain, the end of the Shadow war and the return of the Eagles.
With a bunch of Segues, Strikeback 2 etc. eac book has notes on the world and expands things. Like the mini source book on the history of the Eagles complete with roster timeline and stats for all but Bandit the Wonder dog (it became a “Black Dog”). There are 2 A4 books of handwritten notes which need transcribing and putting in, but things are on hiatus at the moment
As to what will happen to Legacy, I am not sure at the moment.
I am currently working on some WW2 stuff, and some Victorian stuff (Spandex and Steampunk anyone) so we shall see.

I think that the game I will run at Dragonmeet 2012 will be the lost tale of Hitler and the Holy Grail as mentioned in Victoria & Holy Grail. Which is on my to do list
