|bzero||11:20 pm - Exiles Recap - February 22nd|
Last session started with the Exiles back on the Panoptichron. Proteus had been captured and held in stasis, but according to Heather Hudson the damage to the Aniverse had not been fixed. Even though no obvious threat presented itself to the X-Men, who were finishing their fight with the Harvesters, Hudson maintained that there was still a strong chance that Nathan Summers would fall into the Black King’s hands.
The team discussed going back down to protect Nathan until they figured out what they needed to do to fix the Aniverse. Spider-Ham also lamented the damage done to Caliban in the fight, and Kobra Kompressor, impatient with him, briefly took Panopticron control from Hudson and tried to beam Spider-Ham back down to Pharos Island to shut him up. Hudson, frustrated with Kompressor, beamed the entire team back down to Pharos.
Once on Pharos, the team spread out, some moving to defend Nathan, others fanning out to look for trouble. The fight with the Harvesters seemed to be nearly over, and there was no indication of what danger Hudson had predicted. Cyclops and Phoenix had trapped Juggernaut in a hole Cyclops had blasted into the sand, and Kobra Kompressor jumped down into the hole to help (and to avoid Dark Claw, who seemed ready to revenge what Kompressor had done to Spider-Ham, who was now missing.)
Dark Claw and Storm noticed a shimmer off the coast of Pharos, and without further warning the Black King and his Court appeared in a trans-dimensional airship. The Court (minus Destiny, who stayed behind on the ship) immediately debarked, targeting the Academy X kids. Havoc realized the choker around the Black Queen’s neck was identical to the one worn by Malice, an evil entity that once possessed her boyfriend Lorne.
The Black Queen tried to possess Clarice, but she was warned by the Exiles and resisted the attempt. The Exiles and the X-Men attacked the Black Court, trying to protect Nathan from being kidnapped. Dark Claw got into a fight with the Black Rook, tearing off his face and revealing him to be the blue shape-shifter known in other realities as Mystique. Kobra Kompressor wound up talking down the Juggernaut, effectively taking him out of the fight.
Havoc attacked the Black King, blasting him with plasma before he responded with a TK blast that drove her back into the sand of the island. Morph was able to grab Nathan and bring him up to the Panoptichron, where Hudson put him in the gallery to keep him safe until they work out a cute for his virus. HERBIE brought Havoc up to the Panoptichron for medical attention, and became the new keeper of the Tallus.
Storm blasted the Black King’s airship with lightning, damaging it badly. Morph returned from the Panoptichron and took out Destiny, although he did wind up rescuing her from drowning after he punched her off the Black King’s damaged airship. Rogue tried to protect the Academy X kids from the Black Court, but wound up possessed by the Black Queen herself.
After the White King mentally blasted the Black King unconscious, The Black Queen, in Rogue’s body, grabbed him and tried to escape. The Queen’s Pawn Selene tried to levitate the Black Court off the island and escape, including the Black Queen in Rogue’s body. Storm slowed them down with blasts of lightning while the White King drove the Black Queen from Rogue’s mind.
Denied a body, the Black Queen jumped into the Black King’s unconscious body, intending to use his power to destroy the Exiles and the X-Men. However, she’d miscalculated, and by touching the Black King while in Rogue’s body, she’d transferred his memories and powers to Rogue’s body, from which she’d just ejected. Instead, she’d just made the Exiles even more powerful than before.
Realizing that defeat was imminent, Selene pulled the information she needed from Rogue’s mind to take over the Black King’s ship, and with it escaped with the Black Court, leaving the Harvesters behind, including Maggot, who’d revealed himself to be an undercover agent for the Black King, only to be abandoned by his minions once the fight went sour.

I’m taking a moment to jot a note in my spellbook while this system is running “diagnōstikos.” Waypoint may be saved – we discovered Arcan Stonehand’s hidden lab, and apparently he built or found an entire squad of battle-ready “war golems.” I’ve been able to take control of one of them, and I have to say, the power is rather thrilling. I can’t wait to get these above ground and start driving the Army of Sunderous out of my town!

OK. As a reminder to people who haven’t played in a while, and as a primer for those of you new to the Exiles game, here’s a quick Story So Far:
In the Exiles comic, the team faced a near-unstoppable foe called Proteus. He took control of Exiles member Morph, and in the end the only way to stop his rampage was basically to slap a collar on him and convince him he really was Morph – putting the team in the odd position of having a super-powered serial killer on their team walking around in their teammate’s body believing he’s Morph (it can be a dark comic).
This is where the campaign splits from the comic. In the campaign, the other Exiles tried to separate Morph from Proteus, and Proteus got free again, possessing Sabretooth and flinging the rest of the team into the time-stream, losing or killing them. The only original team-members to survive were Morph himself and Heather Hudson, team doctor/techie.
Morph and Heather Hudson recruited a new team of Exiles (the current RP characters), and followed Proteus to an alternate Earth, where Proteus’s presence had interfered with the timeline and caused Cyclops and Phoenix’s kid, Nathan Summers, to be infected by the transmode virus by Cipher, another member of the X-Men. The Exiles recovered Proteus/Sabretooth, but left the X-Men to deal with the consequences of Proteus’s presence, which doesn’t sit well with some members of the team.
Next session will begin with the Exiles recovering on their base, the Panoptichron. They will have to decide whether or not to go back and try to help the X-Men, what to do with Proteus/Sabretooth, and ultimately what to do with their twelve-member team now that the initial threat of Proteus has been stopped.

|bzero||03:20 pm - From the Personal Log of Dr. “Mary” Mayr – Tavnian scientist in exile on Prometheus V|
Personal log, stardate 43657 point… four. Things have been so busy and wonderful I haven’t had much chance to update this log. My great success, Maria, continues to astound me with her quick adaptability to ever-changing and sometimes stressful stimulus. I’ve installed a Neural Activity Controller and a Direct Neural Interface to enhance the abilities of her organic brain, which seems to be working well with her synthetic body. Considering Maria’s limited experience with the world, she’s functioning remarkably well, and already she’s become the companion and daughter I’ve always dreamed she’d be.
Things aren’t all positive here, however. That pirate Semochu has turned back up, looking for payment for the materials used to build Maria in the first place, and since that miserable Starfleet has been dragging their feet about renewing my research grant, and things have gotten ugly. They kidnapped my daughter Clara, and held her hostage until I could pay them.
Luckily, Maria and I hatched a plan to get Clara back, and maybe get those hooligans off my back forever. Together, Maria and I even managed to capture their ship, and now we’re the ones holding all the cards. I wanted to space the wretched criminals, but Maria seems to be developing her own moral code, and wouldn’t allow it. Instead, we’re holding them in their own brig.
I worry, however, about exposing Maria to Semochu, the pirate captain. He’s a slick bastard, and I’m afraid that he’ll be able to take advantage of Maria’s sweet naiveté. The sooner we dump the crew on a prison asteroid and take off, the better. I’d prefer to leave before Starfleet returns, as well, since I’d rather not have them poke around my research now that Maria is finished.

|rotte_volf||05:05 pm - Manifesto "Dyudrok" (The new psycho-reality)|
(New Experimental Art)
1. In connection with the so-called global crisis art movement "POP-REVOLUTION"
(with the partial assistance of ART-REVOLUTION) and the artist Artyom Suslov
as well as several other free artists decided to create and implement the concept of
promotion of new art "Dyudrok."
The essence of this art is to re-establish the own way of avant-garde and surrealism.
Dyudrok included any avant-garde and modern art with blurred boundaries of genres and
unlimited fantasy of the author.
At the moment, the world economic system as well as world political system infringe
on the majority of rights, freedoms, opportunities and even hopes of man.
In this regard, decreasing the creative capacity of most people because
it decreases the level and scope of vision as well as the hope of translating its
into reality. At the time of the current crisis, a simple man forgets about high ideals,
he dreams at a low level. Dyudrok must to protect people from objective reality.
We believe - the objective reality that is at this level of crisis can and should move to
second place. We have the right to push it into second place if we give to the man a
new reality, which will carry the title of "objective". what is now "objective" will take
second place, or just disappear for a man.
Accordingly, we believe that everyone, regardless of his religious beliefs, his status in
the society, and regardless of the sanctions, which in future could be taken against the
"Dyudrok" has the right to go to the new reality at any time, partially or completely .
2. In our view, any human rights organization and any commission or authority that
to deal with human rights have the obligation to protect the right of every adult
in the transition, partial or complete, in a different reality.
3. If the man who entirely gone in a different reality according with the laws of this reality
can no longer be capable - this is his personal decision as the new reality does not contradict
the existing laws and not causing harm to anyone. Neither does the campaign leading cause harm.
No one is obliged to support the individual's life in old reality when he left a letter of
advice (note) with the signatures of witnesses.
4. The departure of a reality, as well as assistance in this, not an injury to humans,
because the only thing involved in this process - the human imagination.
But imagination does not belong to the bodi, as well as the experiments of the imagination
is not harmful for the rights of mental functions.
Accordingly, there is no room for any regulations on the intentional infliction of harm or death to
humans. Also note that imagination is fully subject to his master.
5. Relatives and friends of man who passed away in a different reality have the right to challenge the
decision through the courts or through the human rights organizations and and demand to return
him to the reality in which they are located. In doing so, c. 5 is partly contrary to the core - 1 item,
and further debate on this soil can be resolved only in the mutual agreement of the parties.
6. As Dyudrok is not limited with anything and depends only on the human imagination,
it does not conflict with any law and religious customs.
7. For the same reason (not limited and opportunity
giving own properties) Dyudrok and concept its development
and its veneration is not any organization or religion
nor the political movement. Because Dyudrok do not have its own symbols and beliefs.
The author of the Manifesto is Artyom Suslov.

|bzero||10:01 pm - The Shaft Mission Recap, Part 5 of 5|
[Recovered by IntSec from a damaged PDC 3000 RED]
[Still photograph recovered, of Cat-R-WAL-1, half-posing in the cramped back of a rented hack, holding an experimental
Stun Death Ray.]
[Video data corrupted/lost. Sent to Tech Services for additional retrieval efforts]
[Recovered video follows]
Chaotic scene of highly agitated milling Infrareds. Two RED-level techs hold up a sheet on which with grease pencil they’ve crudely drawn a Frankenstein’s Monster head, with a circle around it and a line through it. One of the techs is giving what seems to be a rousing speech about the evils of relying too much on the Computer and technology.
The man is shouting, “Today’s near-meltdown is precisely what we’ve been talking about. The food vats, the Memomax facility, the reactor – all are open and vulnerable to catastrophic accident or terrorist attack! We must stop relying on the Computer, robots, and technology to guard and live our lives! We must strike back, and carve out an existence for ourselves – take control from our creations and make them serve us again!”
Goldenspa-R cuts in, taking over the speech. “We’ve been routed from our current assignment by the Computer, to break up this illegal congregation and to arrest and detain the ringleaders, using force if necessary.” The camera pans to her fellow troubleshooters, who prepare sonic pistols and experimental weaponry.
Lu-R is directed to fire the Freeze Ray at the leader to stop him, while Page-R moves to block the exits. Cat-R hands the
Stun Death Ray to Goldenspa-R, and suggests she use her EPAMD to get a good dolly shot of the villains’ apprehension, backing the team up with the Death Ray if necessary.
Lu-R aims and fires the Freeze Ray, which instead of immobilizing the traitor coats Lu-R’s arm with a thick coat of ice up to the shoulder. The image shakes as Goldenspa-R tries to mount it and the Death Ray on the EPAMD; as she activates the hover-Segway suddenly a Red wall whips towards the camera, and the image is burned out by a fierce explosion.
[Recording ended. No further data recoverable from device. Goldenspa-R-ROW-2 pronounced dead at scene.]

[Recovered by IntSec from a damaged PDC 3000 RED]
The camera pans around a large R&D office. Through a doorway an Orange lab can be seen, where Orange and Yellow techs engineer and test a slew of wondrous devices. The recording settles on an excitable RED clearance R&D tech, who inquires about Page-R’s mutant status with an apparent mixture of apprehension, fear, and pity before getting to the task at hand: experimental gear.
“Now,” the tech explains, “it’s important in any combat situation for the squad to always know exactly where its group commander is. To help identify and locate the team leader at all times, we’ve created the Leadership Cloak. It prominently displays the concentric circles of the Team Leader symbol for all to recognize immediately.
The tech holds up a bright shiny red poncho with the target-like Leader sigil both over the heart and in the center of the back. Since Team TEX-47’s leader is a registered mutant, the tech quickly has a yellow stripe added on either side to alert any bystanders to Page-R’s dangerous, second-class status.
Goldenspa-R gets a quick shot of Page-R gamely donning the Leadership Cloak, and bouncing up and down in apparently happiness. Goldenspa-R gets a shot of the six-limbed Mechanical Hound, guaranteed to “sniff out mutants and traitors,” as it gets assigned to Happiness Officer Dolly-R. Goldenspa-R herself is assigned an “Electric Personal Assistive Mobility Device" (EPAMD) XT (eXtremetm Transport) hover-Segway.
The camera records Cat-R’s excitement as she lays claim to a Freeze Ray, only to capture her disappointment as the last device, a
Stun Death Ray, gets assigned to a surprised-looking Lu-R by default. The team is admonished to take care of the equipment, and report back the results of in-field testing.
