An Old-Fashioned Prison Melee
A Herald from the Heavens Arrive
  • December 21st-January 21st, 2017

Excalibur Blue has become skilled in dealing with dealing with villain plans. They came up with a good plan to guard the prison and prevent an expected prison break. The very first thing they did was setup patrols in the prison area where Plague Doctor and Pulse were imprisoned and left Hawk to guard the prison.

The villains were still able to sneak in through a secret tunnel entrance they made dug by Tiger Shark. The battle quickly began when alarms were sounded and Daybreak and Autopsy were first on the scene. They saw the villains arrive and lept into action.
And it turned into a crazy four way battle. Excalibur split the party which proved to be.smart and two villain groups tried to flee. Wyvern and Lucas and Pulse ran into the Hobgoblin and Bloodaxe who were there for Pulse too. They were pursued by Daybreak and Captain Righteous. The other group of Tiger Shark, Emerald Shogun, Mongoose, and Plague Doctor were pursued by Autopsy, BC, Hawk, and Red Reactor.

Shogun and Tiger Shark blocked Autopsy from pursuing Plague Doctor and Mongoose who tried to escape. The remaining Mandroids aided Autopsy. BC and Captain Righteous were the next to arrive on scene and since BC didn’t know about the tunnel so he went to the back where he thought Mongoose would run out, however, Mongoose didnt appear. There he ran into a poorly disguised Levin Glockner who treates his Primus identity as an annoyancd. BC asked Glockner where Plague Doctor was and said Levin replied that he hadn’t noticed them come by, so they must have come from underground. Autopsy used EVI to get a map and directed BC to the basement. Hawk got in Plague Doctor’s and Mongoose’s way at that point, but they evaded her. In a clever move, BC told Red Reactor to find the tunnel exit and block it. So, he flew off to find it and it proved to block the villains escape at a crucial moment. The villains doubled back and tried to make a fighting escape. Mongoose’s speed still nearly got Plague Doctor out of there, but they were beaten unconscious quickly when Mongoose was grappled and everyone took a turn beating him up. Tiger Shark lost too and Emerald Shogun made his escape.

On the other side, Wyvern and Lucas lost bad. Wyvern nearly died. Hobgoblin murdered Lucas. The players really were involved int the battle. And Daybreak went into berserker invincible mode. Hobgoblin escaped and captured Pulse, but Bloodaxe was killed by Levin Glockner who took her axe. Captain Righteous followed the Hobgoblin back to his mansion base.

Captain Righteous made his way to Hobgoblin ‘s base and then found out Hobgoblin found he was being followed. So, he was psychicly controlled and manipulated. His memory stolen and false memory of a sister he didn’t have implanted. They dropped him off in the river in a iceberg. The heroes were tricked by mind controlled Capt Righteous so they didnt go to the right base and walked into a trap vs. Atlantean employees of Hobgoblin. They ran away.

Meanwhile, it was revealed berserker Daybreak was controlled by Loki by BC and he couldn’t stop her. She went and nearly killed her family and then stole the Norn stones handing them to Loki.

Then they covered some other stuff. Trained some new skills. They rescued BCs son with a clever plan. They traded AD who they summoned with clever magic plan to Titania. Some roleplaying life stuff and getting things in order. Then ended with Egyptian BC arriving and warning them that Kang is coming.

12 Hours till the End of the World
Also included: The Embarrassing Defeat of Wyvern's Gang
  • 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.

The Fey War Ends
The Six Day World War
  • July 31st-November 14th, 2016

The heroes make their way back to Excalibur base. Badly injured, but alive. They take a rest and decide to meet up afterward to discuss their course of actions. The meeting takes place and the heroes discuss the missing Adam Jenson. Daybreak had spotted him leave and agree to Seth’s deal. So, they move to remove him from the team and disable his communication device. next, they go over the results of the battle and discuss what actions they can take against Oberon’s armies. They also look over incoming operations data from other teams around the world. The situation rapidly stabilized as heroes took action. The combined forces of the heroes and national armies are holding the fairies at their beachhead around the portals to their realms. Casualties have hit about 4000. Many in places with less of a superhero presence.

Reports are sent and Captain Righteous encourages everyone to go out and look over the community to let them know that their heroes are among them. The team ignores that request and BC stays-in to research means to battle the fey and information on their new enemies. Daybreak goes and checks in on those closest to her and her dojo. Captain Righteous goes on patrol. Adam Jenson is presented with a power-up and prepared to return to Earth. Captain Righteous’ patrol is encouraging. Though some Londoners seem to be against the team’s actions that led to Oberon’s invasion. Most seem to have an air of defiance. Londoners seem to be tired of being pushed around.

Returning to Excalibur Blue HQ, Captain Righteous meets the new liaison from the government to Excalibur. Clifford Brown. Clifford Brown is waiting on authentication to enter from overworked Excalibur staff when he Captain Righteous meet. The two discuss what’s up and enter the building. Mr. Brown has the equipment the team ordered and presents further information to the assembled team. He also alerts them to an inquiry headed by the MPs in Parliament. They are going to question the group about their actions. He is supportive of them and provides all of the information he has. This leads to two things, first, the team calls in reserve member Red Reactor. Second, it leads to BC questioning what the symbol Oberon was designing did. BC investigates it and discovers that a local collector has a book that could give further information on it. He goes to investigate with Captain Righteous when Adam Jenson arrives to destroy the heroes. A battle ensues that see Adam Jenson lose and his god allies whisk him away with a victory under the belt, BC steals a book from the severely injured owner who was hurt in the conflict.

The book gives BC enough knowledge to determine that the spell was a summoning spell keyed to his dimension. Intuiting that it was for Puck, the person Oberon came looking for, the heroes go and recreate the circle in Battersea Park as Oberon himself attempted to do a few weeks ago. However, the war is going worse and Oberon has called in the Wild Hunt. These spectral horseman come after the heroes and though Daybreak throws up a barrier of light, some of Oberon’s forces break in. The heroes are able to fight back the hordes long enough for the spell to fire and it does, in fact, summon Puck to their location. Puck stops the conversation by pronouncing himself their sponsor to the Seelie Winter Court. Respecting traditions and law. The Wild Hunt is stopped to allow the offenders to journey to court. They travel through the a rift and sneak through the dark forest where they arrive at the Winter Court. Beseeching Oberon on the heroes behalf, they are able to offer a deal to end the war. They offer Oberon the same experience to each offender that he had. Some hours trapped in his realm and to be beaten unconscious.

Forced to accept the offer because of the rules of the court, Oberon imprisons the heroes. Red Reactor is excluded from this deal and sent back home. Upon their release, the other heroes quickly return back, but BC makes a secret deal with Oberon. He asks for a trade. His son for additional power. Oberon accepts and BC glimpses his son for a brief moment, terrified and confused he looks at the hero before BC fades back to Earth with enhanced abilities and new powers from Oberon. When they return, they realize that the world thinks them martyrs and that it is now nearly three months later

The Fey Fight Back!
Worldwide Invasion
  • July 18th-July 30th

Immediately jumping into the action, our heroes faced off against Ankrah in a small Italian village. Ankrah had held the village hostage as a means to get back at Mago. Arriving on scene, the heroes battled her dozens of minions fighting leviathans, lamia and more. They persevered however and scored a victory of Ankrah even foiling her trap for them thanks to the help of Dr. Strange. Then nearly beaten unconscious, Ankrah tried to escape but her spell was disrupted and she was sent towards hell. Hawk is given a hard time for being mind controlled.

Returning to London, the heroes converse with the other heroes on scene and pull together the other pieces of the mystery. They also make sure to tell the Korean authorities about Wyvern. Then a number of meetings take place. They discuss the team’s performance and future plans. Captain Righteous immortality is revealed. Captain Righteous is proving to be a competent and capable leader. Debates continue over hero’s performances and tensions are high as the heroes prepare for what they believe will be Oberon’s return.

A brief break continues and the heroes take care of their normal lives. BC is shaken by dreams of his previous life realizing he has a family. Daybreak talks to her adopted family and checks in at work. Mr. Righteous patrols the area. Adam Jenson battles a mysterious purple growing robot.

Finally, Eryn alerted the group that the gates that held in the fey were being tampered with. Together with Hooded Brawler, the heroes go and check on the portal. There they meet Ankrah who they battle. Ankrah’s body, they come to find out, is occupied by Seth, the Egyptian God of Death. The battle proves fierce as Hooded Brawler, backed up by Excalibur, battles it out with Seth. Seth gets the better of them though the surrounding area is destroyed and he is injured. In the end, Adam Jenson remains the only person on scene battling it out futilely against Seth. When the god offers him a deal. Join him and become stronger. Resentful of his treatment amongst the team, Adam Jenson joins Seth and visits his domain of Abydos where he plots the destruction of his friends.

As the new allies disappear, the fey enter the world and the fairy invasion of Earth begins.

Battle with Oberon and Pursuit of Ankrah
A New Excalibur Team is Formed
  • July 4th- July 18th 2016

Having had a period of rest and recovery, the heroes took care of some long-neglected needs. First, BC made an appointment with Radhika Joshi to get a new suit made. The two had a friendly conversation, he then left and went to patrol. Checking on Madame Traylan, her shop is entirely gone. The store is missing with the address no longer being there at all. He also purposefully avoids spending much time near the British Museum. Adam Jenson works as a security guard and the investigation into the missing lab goes on hold. Mr. Righteous interacts with the Battersea community, meeting a local police officer and the owner of “Natural Remedies” an alternative medicine store. While all of this is going on, MI-13 and Excalibur sets up a test for potential new recruits to the team. The Excalibur team had made a decision to expand into two teams, Excalibur Blue and Red. The new team would have a tryout of available and interested heroes judged by the current members and a guest, Autopsy.

The day before the test, Oberon appeared. Walking around the park, when not allowed and being a former criminal that the police had made a deal with alerted Battersea’s neighborhood police who in turn alerted Mr. Righteous. Mr. Righteous came onto the scene and tried to stop Oberon from vandalizing the park’s grass, but he refused. When Mr. Righteous made a more forceful argument and tried to prevent Oberon from ignoring him, Oberon grappled him with an enormous vine. This signaled the start of the fight and though the incoming heroes, and there were many, tried to find out what Oberon wanted and end the fight without combat, they failed continuing to attack the arrogant king. Oberon told them that he was searching for Puck who had come to the United Kingdom and taken his form. Oberon also threw up a force field to push the heroes away and continued to draw his signs on the grass of the park. Ignoring the heroes. The heroes would have none of that and circumnavigated the force field and made it inside. They battled Oberon more and were able to take down the powerful foe. As he was carted off and shackled the television crews arrived and filmed the arrest and interviewed the heroes. Stunning speeches all around and BC became an internet meme.

The next day, the heroes took the Excalibur test. Adam Jenson and BC were accepted immediately. Hawk was the next person welcomed into the group and finally, The new hero, Daybreak got in after much deliberation barely pushing out the Red Guardian for the position. Immediately after forming, the team rushed into battle accompanied by Autopsy and Hooded Brawler at the London University College Hospitals. There, Mago was protecting a young woman who was possessed by an evil demon called Darzash. Monsterous and demonic forces were attacking. The heroes were able to take down the demons and met with Mago. Information was exchanged and the heroes learned he was hunting Ankrah and had found her in Seoul.

The heroes headed to Seoul to investigate and found little. They did fight a few demons let loose, but then they returned home where they took care of some personal business while setting up the schedule for the new Excalibur team. BC took his first paycheck and gave it to his old friend Ralphie also setting him up with an apartment as well as inviting a few of his other homeless friends to live there as well. As Excalibur finished up their first week as a team, Mago contacted them all and said that they had a day to prepare as he had found Ankrah laying a trap for them in Italy. Mr. Righteous being a law-abiding citizen, contacted his government who got permission from Italy to send their national superhero team, Excalibur, into Italy to arrest Ankrah. As the portals opened revealing the path to a forested space near the secluded Italian village, our story came to an end for the day.
