  • They wake up with amnesia and vague memories of what was going on and where they were going.
  • There are other people on the shuttle, PC’s quickly figure out that they are trapped in simulspace.
  • Gremlin hacks into the simulspace, finds one of the unconscious passengers aboard the shuttle and then forcefully expunges him (a hypercorp executive) out of the simulation. Afterwords the admin locks Gremlin out of the system.
  • A synthmorph that identifies him self as Dr. Krovak joins the group after waking up on the high way.
  • A group of 3 aerial machines wielding buzz saws are dispatched to attack the party.
  • The machines are eliminated. Gremlin hacks two vehicles during the course of the fight and uses them to smash two of the drones. (He had ungodly good luck on his attack roles). The third is shot up by William.
  • Aye and William cut out the hard drive of one of the aerial drones and Wang with the help of the hypercorp exec loads two passengers into hijacked vehicles. (A little girl and a female scientist) The Hypercorp exec identifies him self as Nathan.

  • The group races down the high way with the invisible vehicle following behind them which they discover to be a legged tank (HAWP 2-308) after Wang takes a shot at it.
  • Dr. Krovak hails the vehicle and gets a haunting response back, the pilot asks the group to pull over to the side of the road for uploading to the TITAN network.
  • A few miles down the road the tank shoots out the wheels of Wang’s, Gremlins and Dr. Krovaks vehicle. William’s vehicle takes damage when he smashes inside into debris.
  • The group decides to abandon the vehicles and try to escape via maintenance stairs on the side of the layered high way.
  • Gremlin’s and Wong park their vehicle by the maintenance stairs; William hits a piece of debris and his vehicle flips it over. No one is seriously injured from the crash.
  • Tank opens up with machine guns on the fleeing group using suppressive fire to keep the group huddled behind vehicles. Wong shoots out the lock on gate to the maintenance stairs. Afterwords Gremlin tries to make a dash for the maintenance access but is hit by gun fire, he loses consciousness and rolls down the stairs.
  • When the gun fire stops the group rushes towards the maintenance access, carrying their unconscious passengers.
  • The tank opens up and a pilot jumps out, a synthmorph with the appearance of a fair skinned woman wearing some form of moving liquid armor. She spawns a pair of long bladed claws and charges at the group. Wong engages her in melee.
  • On the second layer of the highway the team finds an armored car with a mounted rail machine gun. William mounts the gun while the rest of the group pile into the vehicle.
  • Wong manages to escape the black suited synthmorph and William opens fire with the machine gun. The group then escapes.
  • The group makes their way to the Sacramento Executive Space Port. Along the way the group notices vast numbers of headless corpses and buzz saw wielding machines. The machines seem to ignore the group and continue with their grizzly task of collecting heads. Some of the machines follow the group.
  • The group arrives at the airport and find it guarded by a platoon of mercenaries. The mercs tell the group to get lost unless they can give them something of value.
  • Nathan tells the group that he has a case of money in his loft at the Green Haven Hotel complex that should be enough to bribe the mercs. The group heads off to the Green Haven Hotel complex to get the money.

Continuity: Log 1. Awakening

Log 1.

  • Tobias and Rigel awaken in the Kepler med bay with no memories of the last two weeks. A hacked doctor bot plays a message from Hans. “Welcome online. AI server HQK01 … HQK– … K– … K01 has suffered combat damage and requires <static> immediate repair. Please report to the <static> Operations Module to render immediate repairs. Disable all wireless freq– … freq– … frequencies and <static>. Repeat, do not use radio frequencies under any circumstances. Treat all wireless-enabled devices as compromised.”
  • Rigel and Tobias turn off their wireless coms and the group splits up to search for the rest of the crew.
  • Tobias finds him self a thermal gown in the med bay to keep him self warm (its basically a cross between a onesie and a hospital gown.) Hey then heads into the Science modual where he hears some thing moving around when he reaches the airlock. He tries to surprise the “intruder” by quickly flying into the room, he ends up running into a mass of organic spurs growing out of a desk top cornicopia machine. One of the spurs slashes across his back, leaving a gash.
  • Tobias finds a Mobile Lab (a suit case with a suite of scanners and other equipmant for performing studies and taking samples) which he uses to take a sample of the organic mass. A spider like growth begins to rise out of the bio mass and Tobias responds by getting out of the Science modual and locking the airlock behind him.
  • Rigel heads to the living quarters. On the way he stops at the Recreation Modual where he hears sound coming from the bar. He opens to the door to find Jerry the bar tender servitor. Rigel is relieved and asks about the current whereabouts of the crew. Jerry attacks him with a blow torch. In the following scuffle Rigel gets ahold of a glue gun from an emergency cabinet which is destroyed when Jerry shooves a blow torch through it. Rigel then proceeds to glue the servitors arms and pelvice. He then shoves jerry into a VR pod room and locks the door with the remaining glue in the gun.
  • Rigel proceeds into the living quarters where he finds a gun stashed in Grits personal locker after doing a T Ray scan of the room.
  • Rigel and Tobias meet outside the medbay in the hall surrounding the Greenhouse sphere. The two notice that the air is slowly being drained from the station in the direction of the Machine shop.
  • The group head to the operations modual to see if they can acess life support and other systems to see why the air is being drained. They find that the airlock to the ops center is magnetically sealed and the hatch to the emergency shut off/manual unlock is welded shut.
  • The group heads to the cargo bay and find an servitor standing guard with a bolt gun. Tobias rushes the mech to grab his gun. Rigel positions him self to take a shot with the light pistol he aquired in grits quarters and knocks out the servitor with a burst shot to the head. Tobias manages to grab ahold of the bolt gun and grab on to some thing before he’s pulled into the machine shop by the rush of escaping air.
  • Rigel and Tobias position them selves at the end of the cargo modual airlock and see an automech in the machine shop that is busy welding a steel frame into an external airlock of the station. The rush of air threatens to pull Tobias into space, Rigel on the other hand has magnetic pads on his feet that allow him to stick to the walls.
  • Session ends.

Continuity: Log 2. Infection
  • Grit awakens, having suffered a late resleaving compared to Rigel and Tobias. He heads off to find his room in the living quarters modual. On the way his muse detects an intrusion attempt on his mesh inserts. He responds by shutting down his radio transmitter and continues on.
  • In his quarters he finds warm clothing and also discovers his gun missing. He hears a gun shot coming from the cargo madual.
  • Grit arrives to find Tobias and Rigel holding on for dear life along the edges of the access hatch to the machine shop.
  • Tobias appraises Grit of the groups situation while Rigel takes care of the open airlock.
  • Rigel heads into the machine shop, moving carefully along the walls. He searches for any tools he can use and finds a spindle climber in a locker. He uses the spindle climber to latch him self to the wall directly opposite of the open airlock, holding on like a spider on a web in the middle of the machine shop. He takes a moment to align him self into position and then allows him self to be pulled into the open airlock by the rush of air while still holding on to the spindle as a safety line. He slams into the automech, throwing it into the black of space.
  • With the automech delt with Rigel yells to Grit and Tobias to close the cargo hatch and leave him to repair the machine shop airlock. Grit and Tobias abide. Rigel spends the next hour clearing away the steel frame that the automech had been welding.
  • Tobias and Grit arm them selves with bolt guns that they find in the cargo bay and head off to the ops center hatch where they use a welder to open the emergency release access hatch. After releasing the doors magnetic locks they push the door open and find another automech inside. two well aimed shots with bolt guns put the bot down.
  • Inside the ops center the group finds Hans, the stations AGI, who speaks to them through text on one of the computer screens.
  • Grit talks to Hans to try and get a read on what is going on. He figures out that a message had been sent to the station carrying a large data packet and also notices that Hans is acting strange. Hans tries to convince Grit and Tobias that the air on the vessel is infected and must be purged.
  • Tobias with his medical expertise and equipment, figure out that Hans’s claim is impossible. Hans refuses to believe them,
