Extinguishing the Flames

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

The pre-emptive strike to subdue the mutants is going to plan. Well, almost. We successfully incapacitated half of them within a few seconds, giving the others a chance to surrender and give us the information we're after, which may have worked had Mordecai the Canary not set the rest of them (and me) on fire. […]

Measure Twice, Firestorm Once

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

Combat against the small group of mutants is going very much in our favour. My power blade has made one tingle to death, with a single spray of automatic fire Dariel's autogun has splattered two mutants in to Verhoeven patterns on the wall, and Matthias has despatched a fourth before any of them have even […]

Power Pins and Needles

Some of the mutants have scaly or leathery skin, some are hulking brutes with dozens of eyes, and […]

To investigate the new Broken Chain cult on Sepheris Secundus, Ulbrexis says he can lead us to one of the old bases that he knew of during his earlier time here. Going down in to the mines presents some risks, including that of poison gas. Thankfully, we have a high-tech version of a canary that […]

On Our Best Behaviour

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

It dawns on me that having Ulbrexis with us on Sepheris Secundis could pose a risk. His rule over one of the mines, the one we're investigating even, and his benevolence towards his subjects may make him recognisable and blow our cover. I bring up this concern, wondering if he may be identified by any […]
