This is late but I have back dated it so it is on the right date.
We had a great session again today. Blake, Blink and The Hellion went to The Hellion’s apartment to check on Dan, his younger brother. Blake and Dan hit it off right away as Blake views Dan’s technology skills as techno magic. They agreed to teach each other some ‘magic’ skills. Plus Blake thinks Dan should meet the base AI. The Hellion disagrees.
The team was told of a threat to destroy a new building. Battle ensued between the Aegis team, Holocaust, Stormfront and Zephyr. Blows were exchanged that were hitting hard between both sides. As usual the team came up with some very creative use of their powers. Blake got the team to turn on each other by possessing one and then attacking another. Blink kept dropping stuff on them and tried dropping Holocaust from about 9 stories up. But he could fly unfortunately.
A reserve member of Aegis showed up to help out by the name of Void. She is half genie and a major brick. As the tide was turning for the heroes the villains teleported out like at the end of the A walk in the Park! adventure.
One small twist though. Blake was possesing Zephyr’s body at the time so he was teleproted as well.

Ghost noticed that a number of spirits began to gather in the server room of the Orloff building. At the same time The Hellion and Mainframe were having an interesting debate about humor. The Hellion also told Mainframe to not let Gerkowski, Dan anywhere near the AI. Mainframe, having a problem in the server room asked the Hellion to check it out. There the Hellion found Ghost. Ghost cast a spell that allowed the Hellion to see all the spirits in the room.
The Hellion, calling Ghost a necromancer attacked. But the attack appeared to do no damage. But Ghost was able to talk to the Hellion and explain the situation. Ghost then tried to possess one of the spirits but this did not work. Instead he got a flash of memories from the spirit. This lead to the clue that a Crowleian cult was involved as the memory had chanting in a corrupted version of Atlantean.
Blink arrived about then and created a got on the spot where the spirits were concentrating. This lead the team to a sub-basement that was magically warded and sealed. There a book was found with more of the ancient language. They also found an altar that they determined is an arcane battery. Figuring out the timeline it was determined that the team’s arrival a few months ago had some type of effect on the batter and the spirit.
They also determined that the altar is right under the courtyard fountain and that the fountain may have been designed as a magical beacon. The finial on the fountain was also the anchor that was keeping Ghost within the Orloff estate. When it was pulled off the fountain it flew to Ghost and entered his body.
So the team needs to figure out how the arcane batter became full and what it was designed for.
Game date: Saturday, May 15th.
The Hellion and Sir Grimm were both in the Orloff building when an alert came in. A bomb had been placed in Eastside park with a 10 minute timer. The two of them took the base teleporter to the park to investigate the bomb.
Once there they investigated the bomb. Sir Grimm, wanting to minimize damage, picked it up and started to walk to the lake. Little did he know that the bomb had a mercury switch as well. Once he took a couple of steps it went off. But it only released a foul smelling gas that made some people temporarily sick.
Or it was a possible distraction as once the bomb went off the two were attacked by Herculan and Lodestone. Blows were quickly exchanged with both Lodestone and Herculan falling. But the unconscious villains vanished before they could be collected.
The bomb was turned over to the police to determine what the bomb was created for. The police will give a copy of the report to Aegis when complete. Chrysalis left a message that she will stop by on Monday to debrief the team and do a play by play of the fight if anyone happened to capture any video of it.
