The Reich Ends
July 18th, 2223Session 182: The Alternate, Alternate Unit
Ire, Dahok, Raven, Kit,
Crescent, Phirax, Silouette, and Terra all have to deal with a deadly crisis
that strikes close to home. It appears that Ghoul has struck again in the sewers
near where he vanished last. Ire decides to lead the veterns - Dahok, Sil, and
Phirax - into the sewers to hunt down Ghoul, while the others - Kit, Raven,
Terra, and Crescent - stand guard at the base. However, as the newer members
stay home, they quickly encounter a killer inside the building, who seems intent
on taking them all out. Raven calls in back up in the form Shadow, but can the
new members survive a serial killer? While in the sewers, the veterns discover
Ghoul's dead body, realizing that someone else is being a copycat. Hurrying
back, both teams will have to work together to take down the Copycat before he
surpasses Ghoul's work.
July 21st, 2223Session 183: Viruses
The 5th Column launches an all-out strike against Mega City
in an attempt to take it over or die trying. With superior numbers going to the
5th Column, President Slasher has to coordinate a massive counter strike to stop
them from taking the city, using the Alternate Unit as a free-floating fighting
unit. Junior arrives from New Parnel, having been doing some work back at home,
and is just in time to get swept up in the matter. As the team has to fight
their way through the legions of 5th Column troops, even having to take over
Gears and use them to their advantage, along with Eve, and using Wind's piloting
skills the max, it's obvious it's a losing battle - until Slasher uses the
Chiere killing virus on the troops. In the end, it works excellently --- only
Junior has been infected and not even his superior Hianule DNA can save him
July 25th, 2223Session 184: The Day Ire Got Happy
With Junior dying and Eve working to find
some sort of cure for him, the 5th Column decides to take a different approach
to beating the team - they drug Ire with enough stuff to make him batshit insane
happy. As the team tries to deal with the all new happy Ire, they have bigger
problems - it seems their commander isn't what he use to be and they'll have to
find some way to bring him back to his old moody self. But can they do it? The
answer is yes.
July 30th, 2223Session 185: Operation Broken Spear
Both Ire and Slasher agree the time has come
to strike back at the 5th Column before it's too late. After having failed to
take over Mega City, the 5th Column's forces are just weak enough to be hit. And
the way they plan to survive the Spear of Destiny is to use the ring Raven, Kit,
Shadow, and Crescent stole. As Wind uses some insane flying skills to get them
into the city, the team splits into two groups. Ire, Dahok, Silouette, Terra,
Junior, and Raven will strike the main tower where Senreich is located while
Crescent, Eve, and Phirax will stop the support pillars from being destroyed and
sinking London into the sea.
The main attack group is forced to fight it's way through Senreich's forces,
finding a cure for the Chiere Virus along the way and healing Junior, who had
begun to rapidly fade fast. But as they arrive in the main tower to face
Senreich, it's obvious the Spear of Destiny is too strong for them all.
Silouette, using the ring, works on getting the spear from Senreich, while the
others use their strength and will to fight against the powers of the spear.
Terra is the first to lead the assault, followed by the others. Eventually, Sil
gets the spear and tosses it to Dahok, who breaks the spear in half and then, in
a twist of irony, throws the spearhead into Senreich's chest. Grabbing the spear
and using the Holy Grail to heal himself, Senreich uses the Spear to attack the
group once again. Junior, his strength returned, waits for the others to stun
Senreich, then charges him, slashing the Nazi in half.
Meanwhile, the bomb group encounters Charon once again. As Project Crescent
keeps the soldier busy, Eve and Phirax work on defusing the bombs, but Phirax
fails to defuse the main support pillar and it blows, sending the center of the
city crashing into the ocean - which Charon uses as a means of escape.
In the tower, it begins to tip over and the Spear and Holy Grail begin to
plummet toward the sea. Dahok reclaims the Spear as Raven grabs the Grail and
they escape the tower before it crashes into the ocean. London has been
reclaimed...but at what cost? And afterwards, Project Crescent goes missing -
has he found enough battle data?
July 31st, 2223Session 186: The Ultra and the Omega
As work crews attempt to repair London,
Slasher gets a disturbing call from Janus, who makes him offer of a truce - that
each side take their respective land and call an end to the fighting. He has two
days to decide.
Meanwhile, the others are attaked by Baberlus, who stalls them while Junior,
in another sector, discovers a hidden labotory of Senreich's. Inside, a body is
accidently ressurected - it's the remains of Ultra Omega, repaired and
rejuvinated by what was the 5th Column. As Ultra Omega fights Junior, mistaking
him for Garland, the others manage to drive Baberlus off and rejoin their
comrade in the fight. However, the team begins to learn they are sorely lacking
in strength as the powerful Ultra Omega begins to defeat them. As they combine
their strength, they managed, barely, to turn the tide, especially with
Slasher's help of slamming and detonating a Gear into UO. In the end, Ultra
Omega is destroyed - but is this the last of the old Hianule legacy?
August 2nd, 2223Session 187: Winter Wonderland
Ire, Silouette, and Terra deal with a maniac who
calls himself the Ice Master and who's goal is to freeze all of Mega City in a
never ending winter. However, the biggest surprise comes not from defeating the
enemy at the end, but a news broadcast from Slasher's office: Mega City is
signing a peace treaty with the Janus forces.
