Tonight we wrapped up our Star Wars-ish game. The group had laid a trap for Darth Vader, knowing he'd be coming for Duke - who had earlier promised to join him on the Dark Side. but then reneged. They had found an abandoned Separatist base from the Clone Wars, equipped with a killer weapon - a giant light sabre that could slash to orbit, powered by a volcano through a giant force crystal.
story short, they lured two Star Destroyers into range and slashed,
cutting one in half and destroying the other's sensors in the nose, then
destroyed most of the Stormtrooper-carrying shuttles with the giant
sword, and fighting off two others trying to land with their fighters.
Simultaneously, Vader, in a Super Star Destroyer, let off a massive
blast over the volcano, frying their electronic systems with an EMP
burst. They used luck to say their systems were hardened military issue,
and rebooted scans in time to see the Super Star Destroyer in orbit,
ready to bombard them. They used the sword weapon one last time, and hit
the SSD, then fled, taking the crystal with them. They sent the Y-Wing
up to destroy the SSD's hyperspoace engines, which it did with
torpedoes, smashing through a screen of tie fighters first on the way,
then it to leaped for hyperspace and safety.
We then set up for
out _Look! Up In The Sky!_ game, creating the Confederacy of Calamitous
Doom, known to everyone else as the Incompitint Basterds. They have a
Time Share of a Secret Base at Six Flags New Orleans, shared with other
super villain groups - never repaired after Hurricane Katrina - for one
month a year, as well as a platoon of Goons and a platoon of Mooks, 6
vintage AMC Gremlins, and an excellent PR department with a PR
Specialist, a Graphic Artist, A Lawyer and Law Clerk, and a Copywriter.
League consists of The Commander of the Serpent Armies, The Mole,
Bubblegum Girl, and Communist Man. They start off having just killed
their nemesises Mongoose Man, Clown Girl, Edward Scissorhands, and
Captain Capitalism, protectors of New Orleans. They had led the heroes
into a bubble trap laid by Bubblegum Girl, and while they were stuck,
they were hit by a random meteorite. Bow New Orleans lies open to them -
provided they can keep the other super villains, whom they time share
the Amusement park with, away.
