Game Synopsis

Street Angel assembles the Hollywood Knights for a meeting, but is interrupted by a call on his commlink. Answering “This is Street Angel, Hollywood Knights how can I help you?” A voice on the other side speaks with in English with a Spanish accent. “Senior Street Angel, my name is Paco. I am the executive assistant of Mayor Alvarez of the city of Rosarito Beach, Baja California, Mexico. We have an emergency situation. The Mayor has asked for your assistance.”

Street Angel gestures to the others for quiet. Speaking into the commlink. “We need authorization to operate in Mexico. If you can give me your coordinates we can be there fast… Who gave you our contact Information?”

EA Paco replies “Senor Webster, the PRIMUS Silver Avenger”. Street Angel fumes a little at this.

Looking from the commlink he calls out to the Base A.I. “Myrlyn, check these coordinates, check the satellites for unusual conditions. Identify the Mayor Alvarez and his Executive Assistant Paco using voice recognition from my commlink.”

Turning to the Hollywood Knights. “Alright Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s 162 miles to Rosarito, we got a Skycruiser with a full tank of gas, 40% of a plan, it’s cold out, and we’re wearing skin tights costumes.”

Myrlyn reports a field of near absolute zero cold. Originating from the Peninsular mountain range and moving slowly north.

On arrival the Team meets with Mayor Alvarez, Executive Assistant Paco, and Police Federal Sgt. Martinez. Who offer their full support.

We learn that a local superhero Volcan with Fire Powers flew into the field and never returned.

The Team struggles to get past the effects of the cold field. They discover that it the cold effect is secondary to the time effects and the field is expanding.

Mayor Alvarez called in the Young 6 and Mr. X (aka Senor Equis). They offer assistance to the Hollywood Knights. They offer a gadget that lets them operate within the Time/Cold field and Sgt. Martinez offers them Cold Weather gear.

The Team locates Volcan’s frozen body and are ambushed by Animated Snowmen. Victorious they return Volcan to safety.

The Team locates the origin point of the Time/Cold field. They arrive at the location and discover a Cave. Inside they’re attacked by an Iceman and after an exchange of attacks. PSI-Kick shatters the Iceman with her lethal PSI-Weapons.

Street Angel asks Amber to preserve the shattered remains of the body in amber for evidence before moving on to shutdown the device. We find it surrounded by an almost impenetrable field, but PSI-Kick’s telekinetic chain easily reaches in and turns off the device. Before we can examine the device it vanishes in a blur. The Hollywood Knights returns to Mayor Alvarez with the amber preserved remains of the Iceman and report the all clear.

Mayor Alvarez offers his thanks and gratitude. (Favor)

Street Angel collects the gadgets provided by Mr. X (Senor Equis) “Thank you for the loan Mr. X, I am sure the gadgets worked as designed?” Implying that he knows about them gathering information on them.

Street Angel requests PRIMUS examine the remains to identify the unknown Iceman.

XP and Rewards

Midnight receives 3 XP
Psi-Kick receives 2 XP (Missed Second session)
Street Angel receives 3 XP

Notes

PSI-Kick’s use of lethal force against our Iceman adversary was a surprise and may have repercussions both personally and publicly if it gets out.

Amber’s reluctance to preserve the Iceman’s remains for forensics signifies I need to work harder on being a good team leader.

The Young 6 and Mr. X’s true goals are unknown.

Comments

The Knights also receive a Favor from Mayor Alvarez

Damn It's Cold
 

Can anyone spot the Blues Brother’s reference?

Damn It's Cold
 

First off, well done Eddie. I liked the BB reference but somehow can’t see Street Angel saying it.

Secondly, not a single mention of Hardcore even through he got MVP? And you wonder why he bags on Street Angel constantly? LOL

This is how I would prefer to see your Adventure Logs. Just a brain dump of your notes isn’t really what I am looking for.

Damn It's Cold
 

Edited for accuracy. Eddie had us in Sinaloa when the adventure actually took place in Baja California. As probably one of the few to have actually been in Rosarito I know exactly where it is at.

Also populated the Synopsis area with it.

Damn It's Cold
 

Ironically you did not add Hardcore’s MVP action in the Adventure Log either.

LOL
