Game Recap: The Knights of Midwestville Issue #2 Monster Mash

“What’s that commissioner? A giant monster is rampaging through the state. The governor has called out the National Guard but most of their equipment is still in the Middle East. You want the Knights of Midwestville to make sure no one gets hurt. We’re on our way commissioner.”

Sparky, teenage electrical controller, flew ahead riding on a cushion of lightning. Forcespike had used her disco themed invisibility ray to turn him invisible, though the lightning would probably give his position away. He was followed by Turbo Smash and Forcespike in the “Minivan of Justice” while Luminon flew above them on a column of light.

The source of the trouble soon became obvious, a 30 story tall, cone shaped monster with three tentacles ending in giant suction cups and three giant eyes evenly spaced around its body. Sliding along the fields it was suctioning up the corn harvest and crushing everything in its path. To the West Sparky could see the National Guard moving in.  Continue reading

Violence Solves Everything

With Don and the Bronze Umbrella in costume, the locals mostly clear out of the bar when the heroes walk in. The Huntress is outside watching for gang members.

Down the street, Whale-Watcher is enjoying her entrée.

The Huntress sees the entire gang coming down the street. Some go to the front of the bar, others to the back where she is hiding. Just as the Weasel orders spaghetti, one of the gang members throws open the front door, yells “It looks like you Corlione’s have started playing dress up too!”, and hurls a Molotov cocktail into the bar.

More New Blood

Veronica and Caroline sit on a bench talking. Veronica tells Caroline that the police will be coming soon. Caroline says that the police are jerks and will probably blame her for all of this.

Outside the Huntress has Morko let her out of the SUV. Morko actually has an appointment for his day job and goes off to take care of that. The Bronze Umbrella pulls up on his bronze motorcycle, but has no idea what is going on. Don Manuel recovers from the fear effect and goes to talk to the SWAT commander. Given that the police are not supposed to be consorting with heroes and that Don is not exactly in tune with the mindset of American law enforcement, the SWAT commander ignores him.

Berserk Button

Whale-Watcher and the Trouser Weasel approach the mall but are stopped by the police. While Whale-Watcher tries to convince them that they are heroes and should be let in, the Weasel recalls a clothing display inside from his job as a secret shopper and teleports into some leather pants. A mannequin appears in the Weasel’s pants outside by Whale-Watcher, who is not amused.

Needing a vehicle to get the mall, Morko walks into the street and terrifies a poor man driving an SUV. He careens off of the road and barely avoids hitting a tree. As the driver runs off, Morko takes the car and has the other heroes pile in. Morko sets off for the kid’s house to pick up Don Manuel.

Aquatic Activities

Even though she is on furlough Whale-Watcher goes to the harbor, just to keep her hand in, and discovers that several boats were sunk by giant waves at around 3 am. She theorizes that this was the boy playing with water. Veronica, having been informed by the researchers of the waves, also comes to investigate. They find nothing beyond the sunken ships until a ferry arrives full of panicked passengers. They report that they saw a water spout in the harbor.

Game Recap: The Treasure of the Templars!

From the diary of Victoria Smythe, super genius
Dear Diary,

Our latest adventure has turned out to be quite a corker. We’ve been ambushed by Nazis, arrested by Bedouin, ambushed by Bedouin, ambushed by Nazis again, well, probably best to start from the beginning.

Dr. Dickerson, whom Dr. Davenport and I worked with in Paris a few years ago (And I don’t care what the French government says, my idea to reach the moon by converting the Eiffel Tower into a space going vessel would have worked!), invited me to a talk he was giving on his specialty, the history of the Templars. As mom and dad are always telling me I shouldn’t be running around without adult supervision I invited Brianna to come along. Unlike that incompetent harridan Lady Valentine who is constantly butting into our adventures, Brianna is quite nice.
