Events So Far

Responding to Sue's distress, our heroes confronted the Mimiga leader, King. Tensions were high but cooler heads prevailed, and the heroes convinced King to free Sue Sakamoto.

They then rushed into the Bushlands, rescuing Kazuma Sakamoto from his own dire situation, only to find a third member of the research team as well. Professor Booster had just escaped from the Doctor, and came bearing dire news.

It seems the Doctor has known all along that there was something to find in these caves, and had more than research in mind. He's looking to enslave the Mimiga and turn them into weapons of death. Our heroes now turn to the Sand Zone, hoping to stop his plans.

Other Information

Contrast and juxtaposition. The story is about caves that are high in the air. The theme is modern science amidst ancient magic. NPCs are comedic and in many cases cute, but their fates and prospects are grim.

We're looking for a few good men, women, and other. The plot will continue for several sessions and there will be opportunity for players to switch in and out based on real life needs and conflicting scenes. While I'd love to see a recurring core group, I'll try to allow for as many participants as are interested - if not in the first scenes, then as the scenes continue.

There is an IC radio set up to cover the Caves. It is frequency 442.2
