A group of commuters in a New York subway find themselves stranded after crazed robots start attacking the subway station. Fleeing into the tunnels, the commuters stumble across the base of a masked crime boss. What secrets lurk within it? What are the robots after? This scenario was run using new playtest rules for running origin story adventures, when unlikely heroes answer the call to action and gain superpowers to fight evil (or villains gain superpowers for fun and profit, whatever floats your boat.) Playtest rules are available on the Base Raiders website.
The epilogue adventures begin! The war is over and the Grey Sky Horde has retreated to their capital city but that won’t stop Vo from rescuing her husband and getting revenge. Xin’s Crows must infiltrate the city, find Locke, get revenge, and get out, without being detected by the garrison of warriors stationed in the city. Brute force cannot win the day. Of course, Vo is far more cunning than the average Grey Sky Horde guard, but will that be enough when she crosses paths with their officers and leaders?
The Ronin must rescue their comrade from Toru’s grasp, but fortunately they have a plan. It requires perfect timing, incredible luck, and the proper application of explosives. Of course, Toru has plans of his own. Who will come out on top in this action packed episode? There’s only one way to find out!
The final battle of the war is only the beginning of trouble for Xin’s Crows! The Grey Sky Horde will finally meet the Imperial army on the field of battle, but Xin’s Crows have their own problems. The conspiracy against the Imperial Court must be stopped, not out of love for the Great Empire, but so the Crows can fulfill their own goals. Vo comes up with an ingenious plan to stop the conspiracy, but will it work? Find out how the “Double Hamlet” plan works in this last adventure before the epilogue for the campaign begins!
Toru the vampire seems to be the key to unraveling the conspiracy, so the Ronin investigate his background to gain an edge. This leads them through the seedy underworld of host clubs, cosplayers, and occultists. Of course that isn’t the only challenge for the Ronin. The vampires offer them a chance to negotiate for peace. In a rare encounter without violence, the Ronin talk to an older man, apparently the leader of the conspiracy. He offers them an intriguing opportunity to learn the motives of the conspiracy. Can they possibly accept the deal? Thanks to Crazon for the art!
