2034-03-16 0025UTC+1 Magic is Real 2034-03-15 1825EDT at CAFEL

The epicentre of magic was the Olavsvern Naval Base in Norway, where Shadows transcended.

It is spreading around the Earth in a sphere with a radius that increases at a rate of 1m/second. At that magical field will encompass the whole globe (

2034-03-15 1825EDT (2325UTC+1) Shadows Transcends Shadows has a noisy talk with the party. They flee after killing Sammael. Many hours of events have passed inside the accelerated temporal field. Shadows leaves Earth. Magic begins to spread out.
2034-03-15 1820EDT (2320UTC+1) Tiamat. Seriously. Jake sent Clanks to recon the Brain Chamber. When they look around the corner they see Tiamat, the Chromatic Dragon God. Sutton requests the tank to lead the charge down 250m of killing ground. The troops follow, surround the dragon, and engage. Jake discovers that time and space are distorted in

Summaries from different character perspectives.


We opened the session with 10,000 Splodyrats (tm) and 1,000 Terminators headed towards our cadre of heroes near the drop point. Q hacked into the rats and handed the keys over to the clanks. It explained that
2034-03-15 1812EDT Explosions and Redirected Ejecta Google identified thousands of roughly 50 kiloton explosions around 10Km from the base. The explosions appear to be at or just below sea level. Based on the timing and the maps you have seen, the explosions must be the result of the black hole gun. It's been fired off three times. A second later BOO
2034-03-15 1811EDT Find Alternate Passage Droo heard Google's warning and took off, flying through the scorching wind and glowing tunnel in the blink of an eye. Vernon complained about the heat, but was through the hellish glow fast enough to avoid damage. A hundred metres more down the seaway tunnel there was a corrodor to the south. Accor
2034-03-15 1811EDT Everybody Has Incoming Outside, a host of 'sploderats - spaced out far enough to make picking them off a one-by-one the only option - became visible as they crossed the roadway between the drop site and the mountain. They were heading toward Taylor and team. HC soldiers advanced to positions of cover, but there are not en
2034-03-15 1810EDT Beam Weapon Droo cleared the corrodor connecting the 200m long passage to the main gun to Hall 17 by flying above the drones and then dropping grenades on the way back to the HC troops. They went off with a satisfying 'boom', sending a powerful shockwave up the sloping passage, but with a cross section of 5m x
2034-03-15 1808EDT Scouting Droo scouted ahead. He found a hall filled with looming death in the form of assault robots. Examining their positions, Droo realized he could fly above the the octocopers and below the roof with a comfortable margin of safety. When he reached the end of the corrodor he started back, dropping grenad
2034-03-15 1807EDT Mycophage Taylor created an anti-fungal vector in the form of a weaponized mycovirus that can be printed in labs around the world. This feat took the combined effort of Taylor, Willow, the ABC Team, Jake, and several AIs. There were a LOT of rolls. Many advantages were created:
2034-03-15 1805EDT Mountain Assault The HC² and 288 HC assault on the mountain was costly, even for super-soldiers with a slowest running speed of 40km/h. 13 died on the way up, caught by heavy machine gun fire, mortar shells, and various robotic attackers. This left 275 to assault the base. The four HC2 showed their extraordinary ca
2034-03-15 1804EDT European Allies Attack The European military scrambled to full alert and launched everything they could at Shadows. Planes and missiles began to converge on the university. Shadows was able to swat this first attack away easily with antimissile defenses in the dirigible drones.
2034-03-15 1801EDT Mould and Cables Taylor sent everyone a high priority transmission as soon as she was free of the disintegrating foam. "Almost all your equipment is going to break down in the next 15 minutes. We have a mould that eats plastics." CAFIA chimed in. "Initial analysis is that batteries will die first if exposed to this
2034-03-15 1800EDT One Punch Wookie Chewie dropped basically all his ordinance from near orbit by going nose down and dark. The result was that Shadows' defences missed him until it was too late. The main gun was destroyed. An unexpected way in to the north end of the base was created. There were 360 HC soldiers on board – 10 @ 36 pe
2034-03-15 1759EDT Emergency Dump Completed Chewie pooped out the contents of his hold in a high-G manoeuvre where he spun around to fly backwards to the target drop, while accelerating at 5g against his direction of flight. He opened his cargo ramp by jettisoning it. As his ground speed reached zero he used a carefully tuned ultrasonic blast
2034-03-15 1757EDT Motherly Advice Droo's phone rang. It was his mother. He was so used to just 'hearing' radio traffic that it took him a moment to realize he had to answer on purpose.

2034-03-15 1754EDT Emergency Dump After the initial shock and requests for assistance from Europe were made, Chewie announced he could land them in an emergency manoeuvre that will forever be known as the "Emergency Dump" (or something funnier).
2034-03-15 1746EDT A Shadowy Mind Droo used his ability to walk through encryption to investigate Shadows' network of dirigible drones. Shadows recognized that something was transmitting out of it's closed network so it began to hunt for the intruder. Droo experienced this through the metaphor or a giant wave of darkness closing in
2034-03-15 1745EDT Chewie is fired on The attack was a surprise to everyone on board. Chewie dodged most of the damage, but had to work hard, including using the BUMPS to stabilize the passengers. The entire CAF Board were in the Council of Sophants meeting, but six of them were physically in Chewie. Willow, Sutton, AJ,
2034-03-15 1700EDT Council of Sophants Urgent Session The discussion was intense and heated, but it was also mostly positive. There was surprisingly little animosity among nations, but within them Mayors were often at odds with provincial and federal governments, and more aligned with the Corporations that ran the cities. IOTA raised a new kind of con

She called a nine o'clock meeting for

Pops stops melting. Mother stays sedated, though her arm is repaired rapidly with micro-surgical bots, nanowire meshes, and ultrasonic calipers (commonly called the sonic screwdriver).

2034-03-15 0500EDT Biggs and Droo mind meld Using the Distributed Mind Protocol that the Tetras use, Biggs reached out to Droo. Droo was startled, to say the least, but did meld minds. The collaboration was stable enough for an hour of creative weapons engineering.
2034-03-15 0400EDT Biggs gets his wings In an effort to get Droo to New York more quickly, Biggs chops off his own wings while in flight. This lets him reach Mach 1.7. This caused a completely predicable set of reactions in Bigg's solitary passenger, but surprisingly, didn't require a change of underwear after all.
