- November 21st-December 14th 2017
Daybreak faced off against Zaran the Weaponmaster in a jewelry store heist and he escaped. In addition, one of the meetings saw the group see Lucas spy on them. BC and Patricia Caspian hunted for AD. BC also investigated his wife and family. They turned out to be fine except for the fact that they were upset that their son/brother was missing still.
Then the fallout shelter sirens went off and the heroes saw that a bomb had gone off at the border of Poland and Germany. The slow-moving cloud of black death floated inwards towards Warsaw with people dying every minute bomb went off. Glasgow was infected with another disease bomb. The instigator, Plague Doctor, killed like 15,000 Polish citizens in the next 12 hours and a few hundred Scottish men and women. In 12 hours. This resulted in Soviet Superman raiding Excalibur base. The heroes came up with a plan to trick Plague Doctor that they could cure it. Which succeeded and Plague Doctor congratulated them on solving his puzzle. The heroes pushed it further and tried to get Daybreak recruited by the Plague Doctor, but instead, they gave away they didn’t know how to make a cure. After this while deciding on what to do they faced off against a fake Plague Doctor who was revealed to be a mind-controlled Reginald Spaulding. Red Reactor went to Glasgow to find Plague Doctor’s base at this point
Then they tried to create a fictional Disciples of Harbinger to trick the Plague Doctor into recruiting them while they stopped his disease. As the first 6 hours ticked away, the heroes started to looking into the bases that they knew about. The first was in Hamburg and it showed the scenes of a battle and was apparently damaged by the Red Sun. They then returned back and found Plague Doctor’s London base where they disarmed a disease bomb.
Running out of ideas, BC made a deal with Levin Glockner to help find Plague Doctor. Shortly after, Glockner and Red Reactor gave them important information. One gave the location of a base near London and the other the headquarters location in Glasgow. The team split up and half went to Glasgow and half chased after Plague Doctor. In Glasgow, Red Sun cured the disease first as he had found the pieces earlier. Daybreak harrassed him while he was trying to save millions and he punctured her suit with laser vision allowing her to be infected. This nearly killed Daybreak. Red Sun left the cure information for them. So they could cure people.
Plague Doctor was confronted by the other heroes and nearly escaped in a long chase scene, but BC was unaffected by diseases. Plague Doctor realized he couldn’t escape and his diseases didn’t work on BC. So, he called Hydra to escape. The heroes caught him right as the helicopter was arriving. The helicopter was able to escape.
Wrapping up the scene, Excalibur ‘s science team solved the disease puzzle with the information gathered in the last moment.. Reginald Spaulding got off with relatively minor penalties because of Plague Doctor’s mind control. So, he was given community service as penance for being mind controlled. His murder went to Plague Doctor, but he was still an accessory to the crime. So BC hired him for the science Excalibur team. Afterward, Plague Doctor was held with the intention to be extradited to the USSR to be executed.
After this battle, it seemed as though a strange psychotic Hobgoblin appeared and threatened to blow up London Bridge to kill Lucas. Wyvern’s partner. When the heroes arrived on the scene, they saw Living Laser standing guard and a group of Wyvern’s assistants coming. They rushed forward to rescue Lucas, but he escaped by shrinking down. The battle began and the group suspected this to be all of a trap. Living Laser went down in one round before even getting to act. Daybreak nearly beat him alone and then Red Reactor absorbed him and that amount of energy was bad for the villains. Lucas and Artrume escaped, but Pulse was arrested and Living Laser was evaporated. Pulse was dropped twice in rescue attempts. The whole fight took 3 rounds. While this was going on, Captain Righteous, thanks to the Excalibur science team, disarmed the bombs.
The session ended with a tense discussion between Eryn and BC with Eryn leaving to go rescue BC’s child.
