And Not For Justice

Carnival

Sunday:

  • Kayla comes home injured from the KC crew, and only managed to fend off her frantic parents by telling them she ‘fell out of a tree’ on a dare from Ailisa’s brother. Ailisa managed to intercept the call, but Kayla’s mom promised to see Ailisa’s during parent-teacher conferences.
  • After a bit of a mess in Ailisa’s closet, Chris is teleported to his room and left for the family to find. Despite suspicion on part of Marty, nothing is linked back to Tywen. He is sent to a private hospital.

Monday:

  • Monday begins preparation for Halloween carnival.
  • The party tells Mr. Kearns about the Santa Monica high school.
  • Upon research, the party find evidence of the KC Crew, and some names. Warlock, the Witch, the Puppeteer, and the Demon.
  • Alisa texts with Kittrel, but cannot get him to reveal anything about his origins: he fears the Warlock too much.

Tuesday

  • The party tells Kearns about Emily, although not by name.
  • Emily vanishes from public eye for half a day. The part finds out that the man she told to give her money and “forget” killed himself. He found a way to forget.

Wednesday

  • Ailisa sent messages on Facebook to some of the Santa Monica people, claiming to be relatives of one of the students, trying to get in contact.
  • The party visits Chris in the hospital, and Kayla gets briefly trapped in his dream.

Thursday:

  • Carnival! The party is approached by Mattie (dressed as Strawberry Shortcake) because she has, like, become haunted by a ghost.
  • Mattie painted a symbol on the floor, which has become etched into the ground of the haunted house. It now whispers to her whenever she stands near.
  • The book she found the symbol in is a guide on how to be possessed by a spirit, so it can live another life on earth. Mattie is not so happy about this.
  • Although the party manages to deface the symbol, Mattie still hears whispers.
  • The party binds the symbol is cold iron, and Mattie still hears whispers.
  • As midnight approaches, Kayla lies to her parents to help out. She talks Mattie through the impending possession, in which voices become louder and direct her to give in.
  • Only at the last minute, with Mattie crying and Kayla urging her on, does it become obvious that the Paxton twins are responsible, and the video is posted on Youtube.

Friday:

  • Kayla is grounded for her lies.
  • Emily plots to get revenge on the Paxton twins.

Saturday:

  • Despite Tywen’s intervention, Kayla is unable to escape her punishment. Thus she has to sneak out, with a bit of teleportation, to visit Chris.
  • Visiting Chris at night, the party tries to go into his dreams to rescue him before he is taken away.

A Running Game
We are not alone, and they are assholes

Gymnastics Regionals

  • Everyone but Chris goes to the regional to support Kayla. Chris had to bulk up on supplies before the elder Alexander got home.
  • Kayla got a bronze overall, silver in vault, and bronze in floor, doing the best among the local gymnasts.

Congratulatory Dinner

  • The party went to Buffalo Joe’s Sea Food to celebrate, where they were supposed to meet up with Chris. Unfortunately, Chris was missing, having walked out on his bill.
  • Twyen finds Chris’ phone, lost in the corner of the booth. His phone had several texts talking about ‘some crew is eating up the food chain’ of his drug supply line. Texting the most recent contact proves unhelpful.
  • The oh-so-helpful waitress tells the group that Chris left with “a pretty chinese girl”, who had her hand on his forearm.
  • The restaurant had recently installed cameras, the records of which were opened with a mild bribe from Tywen. The party saw Chris leave, apparently under Jessica’s influence, and saw her car: a red 80’s Chevette.

The Hunt Begins

  • Leaving Kevin behind, the party begins driving after the Chevette, a seemingly hopeless task, even in Tywen’s sporty car. Fortunately, Tywen manages to teleport into the Chevette. Unfortunately, he was the one driving.
  • Narrowly averting several accidents, Alisa brings the car under control and meets Tywen outside of a metal warehouse.
  • Creeping inside, Ailisa spots a hooded man, who is cataloguing drugs stolen from Chris. After a brief skirmish, Ronnie escapes. Kayla hears him think “must get Kyle out of the school.”

Locker-room Antics

A stealthy Ailisa, backed up by Tywen, finds a hyper-focused boy going through Chris’ locker, oblivious to the ringing of his cell phone. Before they can interrogate him more thoroughly, a seven-and-a-half foot tall hulking figure knocks him out of his trance with a pebble. Kyle’s preternaturally skilled dodging allows him to escape Ailisa and the school, covered by Kittrel’s more imposing form.

An Interlude For a Drug Dealer

Before the party can regroup, they get an angry call from Jacob: Chris’ drug supplier. He meets up with them and tells them a gang of stick-up artists called ‘the KC crew’, have been tearing throughdrug dealers and suppliers in Chicago, working their way north.

Return To The Scene of the Crime

  • The party calls Mr. Kearns and arranges to meet up with him at the warehouse. Investigating the room, Mr. Kearns’ secret background somehow leads him to a stash of money.
  • They are interrupted by Jessica, who has come back to recover said money… and is quickly captured by Tywen. Jessica tells them that Chris is fine, and she’s just “made him go to sleep.” Her method of ‘making people’ seems to involve the seeping blisters with thin, wiggling, tendrils that cover her palm. Ew.
  • Using Jessica’s phone, Kayla arranges a swap, at the warehouse, for half an hour. Precisely nineteen minutes later, the warehouse is swarmed… Kittrel, in his full four-armed glory, backed up by Kyle, Ronnie, and Carmen.

Battle Royal. A very quick Battle Royal.

  • Tywen teleports Jessica to the rooftop, giving himself a bargaining card. Ailisa demonstrates that Kyle’s dodging ability is no match for an iron-weighted fist to the gut, while Mr. Kearns finds out it is a bad idea to go up against four-armed monstrosities. Ronnie grazes Kayla with a long-ranged energy attack, and Carmen restrains Ailisa with a telekinetic force.
  • Kayla manages to disrupt Carmen’s telekinesis for a short time, enabling Ailisa and Kittrel to exchange blows that would have left anyone else bloody. Unfortunately, Kayla is knocked down by Ronnie’s energy blast, and Carmen regains her grip on Ailisa.
  • Carmen’s grip gets stronger as she approaches Ailisa, and, restrained, Ailisa is helpless as Kittrel continues to pound on her. Dodging more of Ronnie’s blasts, Kayla slides and trips Kittrel, keeping him off balance.
  • Tywen returns from dropping Jessica off, and promptly grabs Carmen, teleporting her nearly half a mile into the air. Whether from surprise or the shock of being pulled from her telekinetic target, Carmen passes out.
  • Kayla manages to leap around Kittrel and grab his arm, letting Ailisa get a few solid hits in.
  • Now that the party has both Carmen and Jessica, Ronnie calls a halt to the fight. An exchange of prisoners later, and the KC Crew escapes with all the money, all the drugs, and three severely wounded. The Dalton Prep group, having only two badly wounded people, count themselves the victor.

Parental Intervention

  • With less than ten minutes to spare, Tywen rushes home to have dinner with his father. Chris, still unconscious and with several disturbing red welts in his arm, is stashed at Ailisa’s place.
  • After dinner, Tywen, Kayla, and Ailisa reveal themselves to the Senator Alexander. After escorting the telepath far, far away, Senator Alexander says he will arrange for testing for the three of them, somewhere in Sweden. The party barely manages to talk him out of withdrawing Tywen from Dalton, and he doesn’t seem convinced.
  • Using Jessica’s phone, Kittrel flirts with Ailisa, long-distance. Apparently she has an admirer.

Rumors, Records, and Oaths.
We are not alone

Rumors

Kayla is dealing with a rumor that she is drugging girls for Tywen. Supposedly Colleen is behind them, but Kayla is unable to extract a verbal or mental confession. None the less Kayla causes Colleen to black out in the middle of gymnastics practice. With Kayla’s unwitting consent, Emily forces Colleen to falsify a confession that she, in fact, was drugging girls, causing the poor girl to run from the school and not return the next week.

Records

Ailisa receives a package from a ex-journalist in Los Angeles, forwarded to her by her contact at the Sun-Times. The package contains information about the 2007 senior class of Santa Monica High School. A number of students from that class have vanished into thin air, and there is a faint trail of damage and oddities. None of these were reported, leading to speculation of a conspiracy. Ailisa calls the journalist, who confirms her suspicions of a conspiracy, saying that ‘no one was interested in the story,’ but that ‘many of the parents are still desperately looking for their children.’

Oaths

On Wednesday, Mr. Kearns tells the party that Kevin Boyer has stopped talking to anyone at school, and asks them to investigate. Thursday morning Kayla confronts him, and reading his thoughts find out he is desperate for her not to thank him. So she thanks him. After bringing him into the white room, she discovers she is now in his debt, and he can force her to repay it. He ends up thanking her, by accident, and agrees in exchange to not tell anyone about the party’s powers. He has apparently become bound by the rules that govern ‘fair folk’ in legends: he cannot lie, and any obligations given or received gain supernatural force. Apparently he can even ‘feel’ the balance of debt between him and another person.

Friday, Tywen and Chris discover that Kevin can be stopped by an iron horseshoe over the doorway, and that iron causes him to ‘burn’, but that his blood is apparently normal and human and, separate from his body, does not react to iron. Mr. Kearns tells Kevin to come in Saturday and try and learn control.

*Consequences*
How many are there really?

Saturday
Today began with Kayla leaving Christian’s house, they didn’t get anywhere with the dreams. They made plans for Saturday night at Kayla’s house. This time dreams were impressed on a little and Kayla learned she can push some thoughts as well. Saturday afternoon Kayla and Ailisa went to Ailisa’s home to test her limits of changing skin. Some very interesting stuff happen there. Very tough skin once it is activated.

Monday
We met with Mr. Kearns and discussed what happen over the weekend. He asked all of us to take a defense class in the morning to learn our powers better. Also we are suppose to work on blocking mental stuff as well. Ailson is no longer in charge of Les Joyeux. Jaclyn Thompson is, and has taken a number of her friends with her. According to Kayla Alyson’s old followers seem odd and keep repeating thoughts every few minutes. Very interesting, and suggests that someone is using powers to influence the social scene. Despite an attempt at cheating, Chris reasserted his dominance over Cory after-school, in a knockout video posted on Youtube.

Tuesday
Kayla and Ailisa went to the police station and Vincent wasn’t there still, checked the hospital. Ailisa was able to hack in to the hospital computer thanks to a nurse that left her computer up.Found out Vincent was doing ok but still needed to be there a few more days. A police man was guarding his room. Kayla was able to get close enough to hear Vincent’s thoughts. Nothing exciting. Ailisa tried to start a fight with Jaclyn to get her alone and in the white room. She doesn’t seem to be the leader or brain washing the group. Very odd

Wednesday
Ty can transport light things, objects, and people with him if he thinks hard about it. Kayla is able to get in with Jaclyn’s group and realizes through Mattie’s thoughts she might be the one in charge but not sure. Kayle was tried to push thoughts into Mattie’s head and got a bloody nose. Kayla switches free periods to get in with Jaclyn’s group.

Thursday
Further investigation suggests that Emily might be the one responsible for putting Jaclyn in power, and further is using her powers to get Jon to date her. That night Ty and Christian broke in to the school records and got pictures Emily’s files.

Hope we can get to Emily in time to get her on our side. not sure if she realizes it or not.

Episode 1 - TGIF
In which we learn we're not alone

Mr. Kearns was late today, which never happens. Then there was the school assembly, where the principal was talking about the school having an arsonist, and he burst into flames mid-speech. Christian tried to put the principal out, Tywen went for a fire extinguisher while the rest of the room spontaneously combusted around them. After noticing a fellow student giggling, Kayla attempted to dive-tackle him, at which point he promptly burst into flames. With the help of Ailisa and Tywen, Kayla brought him down, after which Mr. Kearns knocked him unconscious and framed him. During the takedown, the four super-students found themselves in a Matrix-like white room, while time in the ‘real world’ appeared to have stopped.

After the takedown, and the cops interviewing those involved, the super-students met for lunch and came clean about their strange experiences over the last month or two. Ailisa revealed that she has some sort of reflective protective skin, Tywen can teleport, Kayla can read thoughts and project her own, and Christian has sleep-induced prophetic dreams. After discussing their ‘powers’ for a bit, the four decided to split up. Ailisa and Kayla went to the police station to find Vincent, the student who had been setting the fires, while Tywen and Christian went to find Mr. Kearns, to find out why he had covered for them and framed Vincent. The girls had no luck at the station, and met Tywen back at the school to search in vain for Mr. Kearns. Christian induced a dreamstate for himself to see what he could learn. After he woke and said he saw visions of more fire, the four went to Mr. Kearns’ house and confronted him. He was confused, and agreed to touch base with the students more often, but didn’t seem to have an explanation for what was happening to them. The students left Mr. Kearns’ house, and Kayla went to Tywen and Christian’s to attempt to share Christian’s next series of dreams.

And that was Friday.

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.
