FredVegas GURPS Extravaganza

Beginnings

A special task force was created to handle a delicate hostage rescue operation. The granddaughter of French Ambassador to the United States Gerard Reusseau was kidnapped from her school directly after the school day. The team are briefed on the flight and land in Hartford, CT at 13:00. A field base is immediately set up in Manchester, and members of the team begin their ground investigation.

  • The driver, Farrel, was directly attacked by the suspects with a weapon (a surgical steel ring) designed to draw blood. The goal of this is uncertain.
  • The suspects are of native Irish decent.
  • They are using home coded voice scrambling software

A Turn

Suspects were identified as ex-IRA terrorist cell members. DOD was notified about current whereabouts and possible ties and motives.

Vehicles are tracked and recordings analyzed. The car is tracked back to an aging couple in the suburbs. Their son, on the FBI watch list, disabled the GPS, attracting the attention of the real kidnappers. After killing Elloise and Milton Turnbool, they mercenaries took the car and used it in kidnappings. Tracking and soil analysis from the Turnbool residence showed traces of pine tree acid, and acrid soil. Few locations match this composition, so a satellite search was conducted.

A large van. was located near a small waterfall and cabin in the woods. The team descended on the compound, ending the terrorists in a brief firefight. Their leader, a dark skinned man in a tan suit, tried to escape the property in a van loaded with high end hard drives. Large cables and generators were at the site. The man in the van tried to get away, but didn;t make it out.

The child was below in the basement, in a sterile room with strange, but clearly broken curved, arm like trelaces. She was below, frightened, and speaking only french.

When Things Go South

Investigation and forensics, research and questioning. This bout of investigation brings about a lot of information and sheds some light on the cases on the agent’s desks.

With the introduction into Blue Division, the agents have new mysteries to uncover and dangerous foes threatening personal safety and the integrity of the nation. The team is left with limited resources, afraid of who might be in league with the enemy, including ramped up suspicion by Jason Pool of Special Agent Peter Gillan.

  • Special forensics, provided by Special Agent Dudley Lemure provide lots of interesting details. Their foe is reptilian in nature, like the Mysterious Man, and a natural water breather, having been altered with manufactured blood cell walls to absorb oxygen.
  • Their foe is using a skin grafting technique to mimic the appearance of anyone they have a DNA sample from.
  • They are using both antiquated (a 11th century german broadsword) and advanced (laser pistol) technology.
  • Genetic Memory techniques are being used to extract memories of the past from Parker Chandler.

Trial By Fire

And then all Hell broke loose. Special Agent Peter Gillan, fearing the agents closing in on some well kept secrets, send them on another dangerous mission, aprehending Mwneye Folami Ihejerika (Kamarai) from Detroit.

Upon examination, the file is falsified, connections to Agent Gillan made and it was clear that this man, Mwneye clearly wanted to be captured. With professionalism, and careful tracking. It was easy to find the fugitive. Several things became clear from the investigation, that this Mwneye was an artist in demolitions and advanced beyond his personal profile.

The team tracked him to an abandoned FBI safehouse. Meanwhile, Agent Gillian had set up an attack to rid himself of the team. He contacted enemies of Special Agent David Caralos, Columbian druglords and informed them of his location. He set the FBI office on alert, telling them the agents were moles and they were being set up to apprehend these armed and dangerous operatives.

The safehouse was rigged, that was obvious. once Jack Blackburn aka Harold Woods and Special Agent David Caralos came into the room. Mwneye had captured Special Agent Dudley Lemure on his trip back from Best Buy, rigged the room with explosives, and encircled a zone.

During a tense moment, The agents and Mwneye face off with some unknown civilians. In a quick plea, he encourages all the agents to join him in the a circle of glow sticks set on the ground. Mwneye engineered the place to blow, burying the agents underneath it, leaving them for dead, throwing the FBI and Columbians off the case.

While buried, the agents were allowed to talk to Mwneye, who revealed what he could about himself and his agenda, as well as the agenda of the Sakaan.

  • The Sakaan that are here breed in 40 to 50 year clutches of 5 to 8 members.
  • This is the 17th clutch on Earth
  • They came here around 1150 AD
  • They have a fanatical agenda and cannot leave, but the nature of their agenda is still importantly secretive.
    *Their agents are in high places around the planet, including Special Agent Peter Gillan

They waited it out, joining with Jason Pool who confirmed that their status and privelages had been revoked. Taking all procautionary measures he could, Jason contacted Agent Gillen, letting him know that people were onto them. Burned, they found shelter and food, clothing, and the basics for creating alternate identities. With the entirety of the United States Government against them, and a hostile fanatical alien species on their tail. The team does all they can to gather more information, and plan their revenge.

A Long Road

After figuring out who their allies and enemies are, the team re-equips, makes plans, and spends a few weeks making it slowly towards northern Virginia. Modified weaponry, semi advanced electronics, communications, and explosives were made, and the basics of the plan were hammered out.

Walk in through the garage entrance with disguises and faked credentials. Get the girl, and the agent, and then, with different disguises, walk out the basement garage again, blowing up anything on their way out.

Through the process of gathering materials and gear. Jack Blackburn aka Harold Woods learns that his family has been targeted and members killed to get at him.

Well, Shit!

The plan is enacted. After careful planning and rigorous attention to detail, the group infiltrated, knocks out, and captures identification and weapons from familiar and similar FBI agents.

Through the front door, no problem.
Subbasement 2, Critical Detention Ward, security checkpoint cleared
Prisoner Transfer request, guard sweet talked and request granted.

But there was a glitch. The prisoner was flagged to let Special Agent Peter Gillan know when the subject was being moved. After checking, Agent Gillin was going to come down and talk to the group. After a few minutes, and some checking, Agent Gillin invited the team up to his office to discuss the transfer.

They were at a crossroads. Confront Gillin in a brutal conflict in the middle of the FBI headquarters, or blow the whistle on the whole operation.

Plan B, it was. Up they went to the deputy director’s office with a Code Orange, critical information about treasonous behavior. After Jack Blackburn aka Harold Woods took off his mask and disguise and withdrew the laser pistol for him, he disclosed the whole ordeal to the Deputy Director. During the conversation, the Deputy Director has a drop of blood and little wound appear on his neck. Special Agent David Caralos recognized the familiar sound of a tactical team outside, realizing security had been alerted early on. Within seconds, they burst through the door, securing the room and the people inside.

Each was brought into the interrogation room to asked about a variety of questions by the Deputy Director. Questions about family, heritage and background. Each was offered their positions back given some caveats. Special Agent Dudley Lemure would be reinstated with his help on the Pylons.

Blackburn was charged with bringing in Jason Pool for his assistance with the Pylons. Blackburn and Corales noticed some off behaviour from the Deputy Director. They also learned that the File contained scenes involving their own ancestors, direct genetic lines to each of the Agents. The question from the Deputy Director and the agents has been, “why?”.

Bargains

Captured. The agents had made their insertion and successfully gained access to the girl and some access to information. After interrogation, it was clear to the agents that Deputy Director Mark Giuliano was the new host of the Sakaan Second, leaving the fate of Special Agent Peter Gillan in the wind.

Deals were made, strategies enacted, with the pylons being repaired and operational. Finally, most of the team , Jack Blackburn Special Agent David Caralos and Special Agent Dudley Lemieux are placed in the pylons to determine the motivations and desires of the Sakaan.

Into the Past

The pylons do their job, bringing the team into the minds of their previous lives. Gathering together at the manse of Lord Guillame Reusseau, the ancestors are to escort a peasant farmer, Faure Lemieux to the coast and out of France.

He carries a great danger with him, a small crystal from which he hears voices and sees visions. Dangerous enought, that in times of stress, it creates a great intense fire. Friar Aquilinus sees visions of demons when he touches the crystal, but knows that Faure sees the images of angels. It speaks in code with strange language and words. Some things they understand and some others, still, unknown.

They get approached by a small band of highwayman, along with a Hooded Man.

As they travel, Aldred of Blackburn and Hidalgo Lorencio Manuel Mendoza notice movement of troops. Forces from the Holy Roman Empire moving into the Flandre region. If they do not act quickly, they will get caught in between terrain and violent forces.

The Angel
St. Michael made manifest

A targeted roadblock by the Hooded Man and the Sakaan find the new pilot, Faure Lemieux on hte road. Deciding to take him by force, the group fights to give room enough to escape. Blows rang down, men fell, while the Sakaan organize to destroy the pilot once and for all.

A stun grenade by the Sakaan Prime impeded Hidalgo Lorencio Manuel Mendoza’s fighting ability, while the Hooded Man fought an unseen battle of wills with Friar Aquilinus. With the groups slowly falling, and being beaten back, Faure pleaded with the crystal for help.

The angel, St. Michael The Archangel made himself manifest, laying waste to the intervening army, the Sakaan, and saving the group from certain death.

The team awoke in the room with the pylons, under arrest for conspiracy to commit murder, treason, attempted murder, and other charges by Jason Pool.

Looking For An Out

With a little planning and a little luck, the team hopes that DHS will look over their evidence and come to the same conclusion they did. After their arrest by Jason Pool the team is interrogated and placed together under observation. DHS questions them, bringing to light a lot of the evidence that got them into the situation in the first place.

After analyzing evidence, technology and samples, it was still up in the air whether or not the team was going to be believed. With their arraignment looming overhead, it was looking doubtful. Luckily, members within DHS believed their story and evidence, and arranged for them to disappear.

After taking a cargo ship and looking at the evidence, the team realized some telling things.

  • Their ancestors all meet (by design or accident) at least once a generation.
  • The notes taken by Friar Aquilinus were passed through genetic memory to his descendants, their subconcious minds, hiding it in code.
  • The destination given for the Satellite by the crystal is Chicxulub Crater
  • Posited that groups of ancestors passed on a code of sorts to help identify the team through the ages.

They got aboard another ship, turning around and heading to sunny Mexico.
