Aberrant Seattle

The Orange King
A Time and Place

Our story begins as most great stories begin, with a Robot fighting a Dinosaur.

Actually it doesn't.  It starts with a chance encounter.  Each of the players has randomly met a man who calls himself Corvelius in the past week.  The man exudes confidence and is apparently quite wealthy.  While he seems pleasant enough there is something not quite right about him. After a brief and benign conversation Corvelius tells each of you how rare and talented you seem.  For different and unknown reasons he has offered each of you a job with his Import/Export business.  He realizes that you have little or no experience but he says that he has a special eye for talent and he thinks you would be a great asset to the company.  When asked what the job entails he says simply that it will be an education like nothing you have had before. You would start at 6 figures with exceptional benefits.

Myths and Legends
A prelude to Brian Ross story.

1. Brian Ross (Myth) has been hiding out in the woods surrounding Northbend, WA.  Sightings of a great bear around Mt. Si suggest that he has set up a camp and is laying low.  It is a bright, cold early morning in January.  You've been sleeping in a cave near the summit of Mt. Si, your massive bear form keeping you warm at night.   Hikers generally start to hit the trail early so you anticipate their arrival.  This morning, you can hear the sounds of several hikers coming up the trail.  It sounds like two men and a young woman.  The men are arguing about something and the woman seems to be out ahead of them on the trail.  You also sense something else, something big, moving within the forest and off the trail.  The animals seem uneasy.

2. You can hear the men better now, their voices are nearly shouts.  One of the men is  saying, "What are we going to do with Caster?  I think he suspects us."   The predator in you senses that something is about to happen and in the next moment there comes a roar and then a high scream.  The men's voices are loud.  "TERESA!"  They both yell.  Gun shot start to go off like popcorn.

3.  As you approach you hear the men screaming and their gun shots start fall off.  Then you see the body of a woman, it is gored and lifeless and through the trees, you see an enormous Black Bear.  Probably 15 feet on its hind legs, it has one of the men it's jaws and the other, lays lifeless.

Introducing the Will-O-Wisps!
Stars and Starters - Session 1

Attendees:

In the inaugural session, the players are introduced to Zander Williams (Prometheus) , a billionaire nova and CEO of Magnus Corp.  In the opening scene, Zander is on his way into the office to deal with a terrorist threat against his company.  Almost at the very time he is berating his President of Media Relations on the what he thinks of as a hoax and a waster of time, the Emerald Edifice is destroyed.  

Zander contacts his special agents, Jackson Bishop (Mountain) and Sabrina Aneska (Saber) and tasks them with finding the terrorists responsible.  At this point the story shifts and they begin to gather additional agents for work ahead.  They pick up a young college student, Noelani Bishop (Skycharger), who happens to be sister to Jackson Bishop (Mountain).  

Once aboard the ship, the Will-O-Wisp, they head out to pick up the criminal, Xavier Wilson (Zombie).   Consumed with solving the mystery of his brothers disappearance, he has spent years making himself a criminal.  Though initially reluctant, he joins the 'Wisps with the promise that they will help him uncover the answers he is looking for.

Finally, we switch to the reclusive Brian Ross (Myth).  In the woods near the top of Mt. Si, 3 hikers are attacked by a giant black grizzly bear.  Soon after it is clear that this no bear, but a shape shifting Nova.  When the nova shifts between Bear, Man and Condor, a patch on jacket can be seen.  It says (BOT-K). Brian follows the beast to the parking lot where he is attacked by military agents.  At this point, the Will-O-Wisp shows up and the fight takes a turn.  When the dust clears, 7 federal agents (fbi) are dead.  5 of these men look like clones and they seemingly disintegrate into nothingness shortly after they die.  On the captain, they find an ipad with pictures of the 3 scientists and all 5 members of the Will-O-Wisps.  They are apparently suspects in the terrorist attack ont he Emerald Edifice.  Later this news in confirmed on the news.  They just killed 7 federal agents and there is video of all of them entering the Emerald Tower prior to the explosion.
