As you were heading back to Aeon, Gunbunny, Doctor, and Zeal Zealothunter began to show effects of radiation poisoning. Atherton paid you, and implied there’s other jobs available, but Doctor wanted to get back to the medical lab at Vault 95.
You passed by Oil Springs, giving the old college building a wide berth. You passed a small group of ghouls heading north. After a brief chat, you found out that they’re Omegan missionaries, heading to Oil Springs for reasons both diplomatic and religious.
You head into Vault 95, and barter services for medical treatment for the two wastelanders who need it. The rest of you head for the Television Station, and plan to come back in a few weeks to pick up the others.
As you pass Van Buren, you see several corpses scattered around the entrance. The town guard says that it was a Vandal raiding party trying to catch the gates wide open for one of Elois’ bigger caravans of weaponry to pass through. The Vandals were repelled, but many Van Buren citizens were killed.
You worry about the Television Studio, but as you approach, everything looks normal. However, the vault door is standing open. You investigate inside, and find the corpses of Amarita, and Knives. Each are missing their left eye. The computer systems have been rifled through, and some of the smaller computer modules are missing entirely. The computer running the water/air purifiers and the food dispenser seem to be functioning normally, but you have no terminals to output diagnostics.
You bury the dead in the tunnels. As you seal up the vault, you realize that the inside of the door has been graffitied. It’s a series of three concentric rings, forming a bullseye.
A few days later, you are all awakened by a proximity alarm that Kort rigged, and the sound of the vault door opening. As you all gather to investigate, heavily armed, you soon realize there is no threat, and the door must’ve been opened from inside. Lucas Delacroix is missing.Ace and Kort begin to fortify the tunnels, the Television Vault, and the building above.
WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOA do I get to be a steampunk dreadpirate in this campaign too?
Lucas Delacroix Oh. Last campaign I was kidnapped in I ended up in some other dimension where I became a dread pirate. However, the campaign didn’t take place on sea so I captained a floating steampunk airship. It was pretty cool.
Zeal Zealothunter Do I die of radiation poisoning?
(GM) Nope. You just have to trade work for medical care at V95. You and Gunbunny end up helping build some sandcrete walls and buildings for a while. Only ones who are dead are Knives and Amarita. WHICH DOESN’T MEAN THE PLAYERS ARE DISINVITED.
Zeal Zealothunter I am amused that her unofficial official name is Knives.
(GM) I don’t think she ever had a name, or at least not a stated name.
Zeal Zealothunter Hence Knives.
(ACE) Ok… so what do I do…. Do me and Cort spend a couple of months messing with the truck?
(GM)Since you’re the only two there, you’d probably work on fortifying the place first. You can salvage enough misc items to get sandcrete to fill up the surface exit of the tunnel.
