Yes, there was a game 7. Unfortunately, I am
unable to track down the write-up for that date. So these are the
details I can recall, pending sudden appearance of a game 7 write-up
discovered by some packrat of a player. As a result, this will be
mostly "bullet points" of what happened.
After a discussion, a decision is made that the players must invade The
KEEP, the city's super-prison, and stop the execution of "The Doctor".
The fear is that his demise will cause a terrible calamitous rupture in
space/time and free something that shares the body with its original
Audra Blue was involved in the planning of the prison's security so she
knows some things about the way it's run. She tells the players about
what the layout is and where the entry point should be. Bridge has
volunteered to put the group inside in the clearest spot that Audra Blue can
Shut-in Audra Blue actually volunteers to help on this mission.
(Basically, B4 could have done the system monitoring, but as GM I didn't
like the idea that one player would be left out of the action; I'd already
had that happen once, at the stadium, when Mark's character didn't get there
until the end.)
The only way Audra Blue can get into the prison and not freak out due to
her agoraphobia is with the help of Muse, so she uncharacteristically asks
the woman's help (they don't like each other much) and Muse agrees.
Muse's ability to control emotions will keep Audra in the game.
It's likely he will be in his cell and so a plan is created. Uncle
Slam will not be told because it's expected he would not side with the
heroes, being the law and order type. (This is actually a good
decision. Troops would have been readied and U.S. himself would
have been there.)
The group ports in and Audra Blue is set down at the control panel while
one group manages to control troops in the area. On the censors, the
cell where The Doctor should be is empty! Censors show that The Doctor
has been moved to the execution room! Seems the warden has decided to
move up the schedule and perform the execution now. He was The Black
Pope's man on the inside, there to bring about the End Time.
As the players proceed to battle troops on the inside and a team
teleports to the execution room using the monitors (Something that I've been
reading about lately and turns out is illegal, but hey, it was nice and
cinematic), the others spot Eldritch, supposed "Hero" and former member of
the original Sentinels. It seems he's using the situation to get at
someone he could not previously get to; An ancient enemy and member of The
Infinitum (a group of 5 demonic brothers, some of whom the players have
already fought). He uses the opportunity to destroy one.
The heroes get to the execution room and stave off attempts to execute
The Doctor. Some of the heroes are very injured in these attempts
(including Bridge, who is not built for combat; She has "last resort"
offense, which she's both too injured to use here and likely to kill all the
heroes too due to their area effect).
The heroes manage to get him out of the base and leave the Warden behind.
Fatalities on the mission: Two. One as the entity whom
Eldritch came there to dispatch, using the team as a diversion. The
second was a guard who took a seriously strong killing attack and was left
to bleed to death on the tile.
The heroes get back to the base and put The Doctor in storage in a cell.
Questioning reveals the following information:
He doesn't remember much of who he is. He's not from this
dimension. An entity has entered him and used his body as a vessel to
get to this dimension. During the times that it is here he doesn't
The team realizes there are ways to fix this by dispatching him back to
his home dimension but it requires certain spells and such from a book in
Eldritch's old room. Speaking of which, guess who shows up...
Eldritch has enough access to get into the lobby, but that's all.
He is there to ask that the being in their custody be executed. He
explains that the man in the prison and the entity inside this guy are
extra-dimensional, demons who are brothers. He has spent hundreds of
years looking at all the permutations of the timeline and decided this
gambit with The KEEP was the best opportunity he had to slay them both.
Unfortunately, he only got one. He asks you kill the other.
Between the team and he, you've dispatched 3 of the four brothers already,
and the fifth one has never gained entrance. They could remain trapped
in their own hell if this one is killed in this physical body.
As some of the players rush down to the lobby, hot-headed Duplicity
mouths of and threatens Eldritch. Eldritch dares him to come down and
face him. But come the time to fight, Eldritch merely leaves.
When asked about it, Uncle Slam says that he might have been more than
the team could handle, but also he could easily have been leaving because he
saw the result of the fight. He's a prophet of sorts; His main gift
being the ability to see the eventual results of current actions, so he can
At the end, the team is safe, but there are other repercussions, which
will be discussed the pre-game notes for the next games.
