Into the Fray
"My godling meditates to open his Inner Eye."
"He's never heard of that."
"Sure he has. He was met at the airport by cultists. They gave him a pamphlet."
"Do I get XP for thinking that up?"
"Do I lose XP for that one?"
We were assigned a very silly mission, IMHO, to investigate the theft of Coalition biological weapons from a small town in Missouri. I figure we were going there to try to get arrested and interrogate the cops, who would be the ones to know something. Taking an anti-vampire build godling into Coalition turf is not my idea of whomping rognons.
But my lord, who is a wee bit overpowered superhero, decided we would go looking for trouble. I suggested we loot the fabled ruins of Detroit, Michigan. We found a troop of gargoyles, three of whom tried to eat us. I toyed with shooting at one with a bio-energy bow while my tree elemental tried to grapple it. Meanwhile my lord fought two gargoyles at the same time. He beat one to death, then used its corpse as a club to slay the leader. After he surrendered.
I pointed out that even us Aztecs took prisoners, and he pointed out what happened to Aztec prisoners. He was a Demon Queller, and he quelled some demons.
I let Grell the gargoyle live after promising to serve me for a year and a day. Unfortunately he wasn't Aberrant and he ran as soon as I gave him permission to hunt (animal) meat. He wasn't interested in eating the corpses of his slain companions, despite my professional level Cooking skill. I maintain that he got lost on the way back.
Anyhow we did find 4 gargoyle eggs, which being the good guys (?) we took to be saved in New Lazlo. We sold them to a scientist for 400,000 credits, which brought our session of RIFTS to an end while we thought about what spells to ask for worth 400,000 credits. My lord wants to throw his melee attacks at people. As a warlock-biomancer I probably can't buy any spells at all, which gives him the whole kit and caboodle. I'll use his insanely high PPE to make whatever goodies I need.
On to next session, when I start using sound effects from my phone!
