Scion: Discovering Divinity

Session #1 part 2

On the phone, Chen instructs the band to meet him at the loft, and to leave the drug dealer in the trunk.

Once they get to the loft, Fleetwood, Vulcman, and Cain go up to meet Chen while Vani and Corrine opt to stay down to watch the trunk. In the loft, Chen asks the situation. He is clearly distressed as it is close to 3 in the morning and he has a busy day tommorow. He decides (with the help of exhaustion) that the best way to get answers out of him is to more or less torture him. He instructs the band to follow him in his car.

Meanwhile, Vani opens the trunk and uses her Hundu voodoo to calm him down, at one point eve creating a halo around her head. She tells Nigga Jeff to quit this trade and lead a good life. He doesnt really answer.

Chen leads the band to a landfill outside of town. They grab and old chair and tie Jeff up. Chen lights a ciggerete and begins interrogating . Basically they get out of him that its closely related to PCP, and that he gets it from a man named “Anderson” every thursday at 1:00am at a Denny’s. Chen instructs the group to take this man to a hospital and to go meet this Anderson to get some answers.

A day passes and on thursday night, the band go to Denny’s. Donnie waits by the back door, in case of somebody trying to escape. The band enters and sees a man in black sunglasses, a black jacket, and a pork pie hat. He appears to be bald and have a mustache. Fleetwood gives each emplyee a thousand dollars to leave, and Anderson gets very nervous. The group walks over to him and sits down. They interrogate him, and basically tell him he cant do what he’s doing.He asks who they’re with- DEA? Mob? they say no to both, but obviously dont tell him they’re children of gods. He gets angry that they’re telling him this, but have no authority to do so. He again asks who they are, or rather who they think they are, only more violently. They dont say anything to calm him down, but do get some answers after a physical threat or two. He tells them that its similar to PCP, but with another ingrediant, but he doesnt know what that is. He says that he and 8 other scientists from Marlox make it using supplies from the company. They get the last ingediant from a seldom seen colleague, Kline. He reports to some man named finnigan. Other than that he doesnt know anything. He seems very jaded, and willing to destroy thousands of people for his own gain. As soon as he can he leaves, saying that he wont do this again.

Once he leaves, Corrine and Fleetwood stealthly follow him, but he sees Corrine rather quickly. He confronts her. He wants information. Who are they? What do they want? Why him? Corrine explains some things, then asks him why he’s doing this. He explains its because he has terminal lung cancer, has 18 months to live, and has 2 kids, with one on the way. Corrine is hit by this like a ton of bricks. Corrnine asks if they want to get coffee and talk next week. Anderson agrees.

Michael and Corrine report back, and the group (well most of them) feel like theyu should help him, for his intentions are noble, but his practice is disgraceful. If not that, then for his children.

Cain, growing angry at the groups inability to see his way (only less dickish than that) leaves. The next morning he withdraws 25% of his bank account, exchanges it for gold, grinds it into dust, and try’s to summon Freyja, for guidance. Freyja tells him to befriend this man, to help him. Then get him to lead Cain to the source of this drug.

Session #1 part 1

6 months pass and Mini proves a useful informant. The PCs have banded together and purchased a top floor loft in Manhattan as their base of operations. They all live there, with the exception of Michael, who has a room there but only sleeps there a couple nights a week.

A few days before the story starts, Corrine has a vision. She is in central mahattan and all around her buildings crumble and people fight with both swords and guns. All this is happening while the sun is blocked out by the mood, with a symbol penetrating it and letting bright light through. The symbol is unrecognisable.

Days later Chen comes over to give the groups assignment. Before he can, however, the PCs show him a drawing of this symbol. He doesn’t know what it is, but says he can talk to some people. He goes into business. He says that there have been reports of huge men attacking civilians in a rage. Normally they leave this kind of thing up to the police, but they believe that these creatures are thralls. Half giant, half man. He suggests that they go to investigate over in the Bronx. After Chen leaves the PCs discuss they’re strategy. Fleetwood suggests they go to one of the worst bars in the city, The Buckingham Palace .

The crew loads up in a stolen van and heads down to the Bar. As the strange group enters, things quiet for a moment, but nothing bad. William spots a man arm wrestling people, and challenges him. Well, Cain, with his Epic strength easily bests him, in fact he even breacks the mans arm a la “The Fly”. The man runs out screaming and Vani yells at him. Cains response is simple “-Aesir!”.

A young blonde walks over to Cain telling him that he cant be doing that in her bar. Cain is understanding and begins to inquire about these strange men. The woman tells him that word is theres a new drug, like PCP on the streets, and as long as it doesnt get back to this bar, she can tell them where they can find a dealer.

After getting the info, the group quietly exits and makes there way to the street corner the woman specified. There they find a white boy gangsta’d out. Fleetwood goes up and talks to him and buys a dime of the stuff. Following that, a thin black man comes up and the two druggys talk alone. The others retreat and watch what happens, when the black man starts walking away. Corrine and Cain follow stealthly, but stop when he walks into a building. As they’re walking back, a huge, hulking beast breaks shatters the sliding glass back door and jumps off the 4th floor balcony of the building the crack head walked into. It breaks the concrete upon its landing, and begins charging the first thing it sees, William Cain. In response, will begins charging back, on his way grabbing the bumper on a car and hurling it at the beast at remarkable speed. The car hits the monster in the head, and crushes it into the concrete. Willima sees that the beast had a belt wrapped tightly around his upper arm and track marks.

Meanwhile, the dealer is running away, but with a well aimed hit, Fleetwood immobilizes him. After Corrine investigates the apartment it came out of, the group loads the man into the trunk of their car, and heads to their apartment, calling Chen on the way.

Session #.5

In our exiting opening, the characters all received a call from an unknown person telling them to meet at a bar called “The shade”. The man said he was an associate of their parents, and that he had business from them. He says to meet on saturday night.

Well, soon enough Saturday comes around and everybody shows up at about 10 pm (the time specified)to find a dive of sorts. When the clock strikes 10 the patrons slowly funnel out leaving only the bartender and an Asian business man. The PCs move over to the asian mans table and the asian man introduces himself as “Chen” and takes some papers out of his briefcase.

Chen explains that due to a recent rise in titan spawn and divinity, the Gods have decided to assign a team of sorts to patrol the city and keep the threat low key. He explains in so many words that while he cannot be sure of their motives, the gods probably chose these specific scions based SOMETHING on their skills. He concludes their meeting by telling them that a bank is being robbed tonight, and these guys better get down there and stop it.

The PCs rush out. William takes his car along with Vani, Corrine rides with Micheal on his moped, and Donnie takes his sedan. The all rush down to the first national bank of New York only to find the large glass front doors completely shattered and the alarm going off. Corrnie sees 2 figures in the shadows.

The rest of the band hears “Oh shit!” as they see a pair of bull horns rushing towards them at great speed. Thinking quickly, William takes the moped that Micheal was driving, and now gotten off, and uses it as a bat to hit the oncoming Minotaur. The bike clocks him, and Donnie follows it up by knocking him with his hammer on the jaw. Right after that, a bullet, fired by Micheal ricochets off the beasts horns. Corrine runs for the shadow for cover as the two other men come out, one wielding a gun, and one wielding a crowbar. Seeing this, and remembering Chens advice to be inconspicuous, Vani uses her ichor to channel the sun and destroy the outside cameras with a well aimed beam of concentrated light. The thug with the gun decides to shoot at Andy first, but misses. The next thug takes a swing at William, and also, miserably misses. At that, Michael uses his twin relic pistols to place two well aimed shots at the thugs. One of the bullets gets one right in the head, the other in the knee. Meanwhile, the minotaur is on the brown, not happy. “Do you surrender beast?!” William asks as he holds his blad to the minotaurs neck. No answer. “I said- DO YOU SURRENDER!?” He asks again. “Me know surenra!” The minotaur says. “Then I shall slay you!” “NO! Mini no want die!” “Then does Mini surrneder?” “I- I-... sigh. My names not Mini, its larry. Listen, sorry about this, it was a mistake, I’m willing to take responsibility for it, just, can you let me up?”

William is confused and lets larry up. At that moment, Michael is playing with the crippled, not dead thug. Meaning torturing him. It ends up that he kills the man out of humor. It does not go over well.

A crowd has formed near where this happened. Vani thinks quickly and goes over and explains that this has been a street performance of the new play “Le Mino La et Taur”, and hopes they all enjoyed it. She assures them that all these people are fine and its just makeup. Everybody (including the Minotaur) takes a bow, and the crowd claps. After that, a school bus comes driving down the street to where the chaos was. The windows are blacked out, and when it stops, out walks chen. He congratulates the band for a job well done, and talks to Mini about them dropping the charges in return for him dropping his life of crime and becoming an informant. Mini accepts.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
