First the apology… I am about 4 weeks behind in updating the adventure log… and as a result, I have lost my campaign notes. What follows is a summary of major encounters thta occurred over the last 2 sessions. Further details will be added as time allows.
Upon their return from their battle with Totem, the Vanguard were ambushed on their roof by a group of familiar supervillains. The Beholder led the opposing force which consisted of the Desert Nomad and Wildcat. Also with them were two familiar-looking villains… one with windstorm powers and the other a walking steel statue. The heroes were too much for the collection of villains to handle and the majority of the villains were knocked unconscious quickly. The Nomad and Beholder were able to teleport away with the steel-man and the Wildcat. The Desert Nomad was quickly bound by Enerjon and hauled off to prison without being questioned. Uponafter his arrival at the jail, one of the Wolfpack was on hand to arrange his bail. The Nomad’s current whereabouts are unknown.
The Vanguard was also asked to safeguard an exhibit of Egyptian artifacts currently on display at the New York City Natural History Museum which has come under attack by various villain groups in other cities. The Grey Mist identifies three objects that might be likely targets for super-villains; the Jewelled Ankh, the Golden Sarcophagus, and the Scroll of Destiny.
The Grey Mist meets with Guf and determines that the Boston ‘villain’ is not likely to attack the exhibit while it is in NYC.
The Grey Mist decides that the Scroll is the most likely target and creates a duplicate out of construction paper. They hide the real scroll in another room with Astrid and MagLev guarding it while the rest of the team guards the primary exhibit room.
On the third night of their vigil, a group of villains attacks the exhibit.
- Destikothesis: claimed to be the reincarnation of an Egyptian Pharoah. Possesses magical powers
- Bast: claimed to be the avatar of the Egyptian Cat goddess. Possesses catlike reflexes and claws as well as the ability to control a small army of cats and invisibility
- Toa Culkum: claimed to be the reincarnation of a mighty Aztec Warrior
- A Caveman with tremendous strength and gravity control powers. Possesses the power to turn invisible
- An amphibious warrior
The battle was mighty and members of both sides were felled in the conflict. However, the heroes got the upper hand and the remaining villains teleported away with their fallen comrades. Enerjon got his fallen teammates to the Aerie for healing. The Enerjon and Gonzo returned to the museum and interrupted the returning villains from their search for the Scroll. Outpowered, Enerjon was knocked unconscious and Gonzo grabbed the scroll from its hiding place and flew back to the Aerie with it to return it to the curator the following day.
