Several of us met up at Epoch Coffee yesterday for a short game of Gamma World (4E based).
Traveling across the desert, Xereck, Davos, and Drake were lucky to find an oasis of sorts, Pete’s Tavern. It only served one thing, a sludgy green liquor out of a bathtub behind the bar. After a complementary round and some discussion it was determined that the drink was good and that Pete might have some gasoline for the pickup truck the group had been pushing & pulling around. When Pete disappeared into the back some menacing Sleeks appeared to kidnap Scooter, the sickly and not-entirely-in-tune-with-reality waiter. They almost made off with him but the party was able to defeat the Sleeks before Scooter became just another piece in the Sleeks strange plan. Pete offered the gasoline in exchange for the party rescuing the other hostages that the Sleeks had… for Scooter’s peace of mind of course… Pete wouldn’t really care about that sort of thing.
To the South there was an entrance to a cave between two hills where the Sleek were rumored to hide out. Going down toward the entrance (and between two cliffs) there was a gap in the road that had to be gotten over before they could reach the cave. After much messing with of buttons on a control panel alien technology was activated and a shimmery invisible bridge spanned the gap.
In the cave it quickly became clear that the Sleeks planned on feeding the two hostages they had to a land shark. Despite his best efforts to stay as quiet as possible to avoid the land shark sensing him, Xereck was not able to keep the hostages calm and they ran off screaming as soon as their bonds were cut. The land shark went down with a singed hole in his side courtesy of Davos, a crossbow bolt through his head from Xereck, and a face full of a nail-studded baseball bat from Drake.
