Crew Members: Nuri, Zevvy, Dima, David, Nima
Happy leap day! We were finally able to meet at Nuri’s again, which of course meant lots of Cthulhu goodness. Something about that phrase sounds wrong.
Sentinels of the Multiverse
Zevvy – K.N.Y.F.E, Nima – Haka, Dima – Omnitron X, David – Mr.Fixer, Nuri – Nightmist
Villain – Gloomweaver: DEFEATED
Environment: Realm of Discord
Faye Diamond was a normal girl with normal girl parts and normal girl emotions. But when she came in contact with magical artifacts, part of her body turned to mist! Sensing her despair, the Nightmare Walker Gloomweaver attempts to materialize in our world by tempting any willing cultist to assemble his three relics: a purse (full of bones!), a diary (full of curses – how mature!), and the Darbuka of Despair, with which he plays annoying rhythms in public places until you pay him to be quiet.
Gloomweaver played his Grimoire of Curses pretty early on, forcing us to discard while we began taking out his Zombies. . Well, everyone except Nightmist who was just sad and cutting herself. Haka took a lot of hits initially, but his bulky frame allowed him to brush off the attacks as mere scratches But when a few Cultists showed up and Haka got cursed by a Voodoo Pin, Nightmist channeled her emotions into the form of an Oblivion spell, destroying pretty much everything.
In the nick of time we destroyed the book–Knyfe punched it, Haka smashed it, Omnitron blasted it, and Mr. Fixer chain whipped it, bloodying his knuckles. Nightmist made it feel so bad about itself that it hit itself and died.
Time was flying, allowing us to get well set up. By the time the third relic came out, we had moved to the Negative Energy Field, and everyone began suffering from emotional issues. But we managed to take out the final relic with just a few HP left each, sealing Gloomweaver in the Realm of Discord and preventing his access to our material plane. For now…
Nuri and I were professors, Nima was a Cultist, and Dima was an Investigator. David got the Tommy gun, but didn’t want to change his name to Tommy for the rest of forever to get the bonus. David and Dima kept helping each other, and Nuri a bit too, while I refused help on my first battle and had discarded most of my cards. Nima didn’t encounter many monsters either, so he and I stayed at a fairly low level. Everyone used their cards to prevent David from winning, but eventually he won by killing a baby
On the way home we passed the scene of a drive-by-shooting. It may have been internal gang violence, the details aren’t clear. There are real forces of gloom and despair, but there will always be good men with man parts and good women with women parts to combat the evil in this world. Would you kill a baby Cthulhu?
