The Day the Human Race Died

This scenario has been written with the unknowing help of many, many, different folks, thanks to you all.

This Scenario makes extensive use of John Harpers Alternative Gun System.  This is reflected in the Character stats


This scenario requires that your characters have links to the Dragon faction, if not affiliated exactly, and have been to the Netherworld. The Scenario involves a critical shift that threatens to wipe mankind from the Earth, only our heroes can stop this from happening. The heroes should also be attuned to the Williamson Estate Feng Shui site featured in the Daedalus supplement Back for Seconds, for the scenario to run as written.


Demons are the tools of the Secret War, The Lotus and the Buro seem to use and abuse these malefic denizens of the Underworld without a thought of the intelligence and malevolence of their victims. Well pretty soon that is gonna change as the Demons make a play to become a faction within the Secret War.

Mal Ank, The Lord of Death by Impaling is a minor Demon Lord (if a Demon Lord could be called minor) who watched the enslavement and destruction of his kind with increasing alarm. Deciding to discover more about the upstarts who were committing these crimes he appeared before a promising yet inexperienced member of the Lotus, Cheng Ka-Yan and offered to serve him.

Mal Ank posed as a stupid yet powerful demon going under the name of Horned Death, Cheng Ka-Yan saw this as his main chance to gain Gao Zhang's attention. Cheng slowly worked his way up the ranks of the Lotus, his demonic servant constantly at his side. Eventually Cheng was made a Fire Petal, and was sent on many missions that took him to other Junctures and the Netherworld, he even had an audience with the Centre of the Lotus, Gao Zhang himself, again, the loyal Horned Death constantly at his side.

Mal Ank was able to learn a lot about the Lotus and how it operated during this time. He also travelled to all the other Junctures and was able to learn a little about each one. He was also able to personally meet with Gao Zhang and judged him to be a very dangerous man.

Mal Ank although masquerading as the brute Horned Death, occasionally showed flashes of brilliance and extreme cunning that led Cheng to become suspicious. Belatedly he decided to investigate the origins of his loyal ally. What he discovered horrified him and he confronted Mal Ank with his new-found knowledge. Mal Ank attacked him and after a short brutal battle Mal Ank impaled Cheng slowly on a stake as part of a magickal ritual to bind Cheng's immortal soul in eternal servitude.

Mal Ank then left Cheng's mansion, leaving destruction and one thousand impaled troops in his wake, and roamed the countryside, ready to initiate the second part of his plan. Soon he encountered an Architect capture squad and after a token battle, allowed himself to be taken prisoner. This "token" battle meant the deaths of three experienced Monster Hunters and the decimation of two dozen troops. Mal Ank was transported back to the Architect Juncture to be transformed into an Abomination.

The Demon Lord willingly went through the pain and humiliation of being bonded with Arcanotechnology and again adopted the guise of Horned Death to learn as much about the Buro abilities and goals as possible. In fact, Horned Death was known to the Buro databases and was considered a valuable asset and was renamed the rather catchy, XHD 16399. After a short trial period, Mal Ank was assigned more important tasks and soon became an important operative within the BuroMil.

Mal Ank finally tired of the rigid formality of life in the Buro and decided to leave. He slaughtered the human members of the squad and led several of his fellow Abominations into the Netherworld. Mal Ank led his followers to a desolate part of the Netherworld, where months before he had discovered an abandoned city that had been shaped by previous long-lost denizens of that realm. Mal Ank called this city Hate and his followers The Legion of Vengeful Darkness.

In the last couple of years more and more demons have joined Mal Ank, the Impaler's, banner, many having escaped the Lotus and the Architects. Also many humans that worship various demonic cults have also joined the Legion. The humans are treated abysmally (no pun intended), but those who survive gain great power.

Mal Ank plots his revenge against humanity as a whole and the Architects and Lotus specifically, he knows that the best way to strike at the Buro is to change history and wipe them from the face of the earth. To this end he has a plan.

There is a Gateway within the City of Hate, which opens into the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, during the year 1912. Mal Ank has discovered from his study of history that this is very close to the place where the Titanic met her doom. His plan is to send a specially trained cadre of aquatic demons into the sinking ship and kidnap an infant. An ethereal creature known as The Whisperer will then possess the infant the infant will then be placed in a replica of a Titanic lifeboat and left somewhere near the vicinity of the tragedy.

The Whisperer will wait until its divinations have identified The Baleful Time, then he shall use his host to open a portal to the Underworld, legions of demons will descend upon mankind and make them suffer for their impudence.

The Infant is Ivanovich Dragumov, who later became a general in the Soviet army and the portal was opened in Chernobyl, Russia in April, 1986...

Unless the Dragons can do something about it, but of course they have there own problems.

Intro Scene

Crackdown in Kowloon

Kar Fai has sent the heroes to investigate possible links between the Lotus and a street gang called the Pain Lords. If the heroes have a recurring Lotus enemy such as Mak Shien from Baptism of Fire, then he has been seen in their company. As the scenario opens the heroes are parked across the street from a crack house in Kowloon, on a warm night. This is the clubhouse for the Pain Lords. Several gang members (about 10 in total) can be seen hanging around the entrance a PER (10) roll will spot several weapons, mainly autoloading pistols and shotguns with their stocks sawn off. The crackhouse itself is a veritable fortress the windows have had metal shutters welded to them and the door is similarly armoured, the walls of the building are festooned with Pain Lord graffiti.

As the heroes are watching this building the vehicle they are in is passed by a beaten old ford transit van that has seen much better days. This van pulls up and ten guys wearing Jade Imperial Society Triad colours leap out. They position themselves in a defensive arc across the street, openly toting Uzi's. A large black limo pulls up outside the entrance to the crackhouse the back door opens and a large man gets out, he is easily recognisable as Sammy Chung, he looks around, appearing to look straight at the heroes and motions to another man in the car, to get out.

The man who emerges is obviously Mak Shien, although this time he is wearing a very dapper suit. He and Chung make straight for the crackhouse doors, which open as they approach. What happens now is completely up to the heroes.

The crackhouse contains over 30 Pain Lord soldiers along with the leader of the gang Bone-T and his lieutenant/brother Little Chow. The Pain Lords deal mainly in drugs and extortion.

Cool Things that can Happen

Inside the Crackhouse

Battle on the rooftop

Road Rage

They are now fleeing a burning building either on foot or in a vehicle, whatever type of transport they choose, they will be in for a chase:

The Chase

Car chase and other vehicles rules

Remember that all actions while driving take an extra shot to accomplish.

Run the car chase until it either comes to a definite conclusion (the heroes either escape or crash horribly), or it gets boring. Once this point has been reached that is when the Reality Twist will occur. Suddenly, without warning the world changes.

Horrifying New World

The world twists and the heroes are suddenly assailed with a feeling of nausea that accompanies a Feng Shui site being taken from their control, but this feeling is magnified a thousand times.

A new reality suddenly replaces the existing one, this lasts for less than a second, before reverting back again, then it switches back again lasting nano-seconds longer, then reverts again....

This continues until the new reality replaces the old. Each character finds themselves in vastly different circumstances:

Character One (Cop character): You wake up lying on a wooden board, you are cold, hungry and at some point in the recent past have been beaten, you are wearing the tattered remains of your police uniform. The board is the bottom part of a triple bunk that leaves just enough room below the ceiling for a man to lay straight out, you are in a shabby looking dormitory, with at least thirty over bunks. Many of these bunks have shivering figures lying upon them, the air is acrid with the smell of vomit, faeces and death.

Character Two:(Gambler, Everyday Hero, Big Bruiser): You wake up lying on a wooden board, you are cold, and hungry, but much more importantly your body is wracked with the pain of drug withdrawal, looking around the dormitory it appears that you are the only one who has a blanket. The wall of your bunk is decorated with postcards from Hawaii and Hong Kong, as well as pictures of pin up models, in your hand you clutch your most prized possession, your playing cards. There is a note on your chest it reads "I've gone to kill that bastard DeathScream, he must pay for what he has done, Goodbye and Good Luck".  It is in Character Three's handwriting, looking up you see (Character Ones Name) on another bunk staring back at you.

Character Three: (Transformed Animal, Techie, Old Master):  Two large hulking men are dragging you across a dusty yard, your injuries stay the same. When you look up you see that the men carrying you aren't men at all but large hulking ogres, one of them carries a large wickedly sharp axe. Looking ahead you can see a bloodstained headsman's block.

Character Four: (Ninja, Martial Artist, Old Master, Stone Cold Killer Type): You are standing in the centre of a huge dusty exercise yard, at your rear is a resplendent single storey cottage, it is ablaze with light, the door is hanging from its hinges and several window's have been broken. You can hear the rumble of a generator that is nearby. You are wearing black robes, on your chest in red satin is depicted a closed fist. Your injuries have not healed, but their origin has changed, you appear to have taken a rather severe beating, all gunshot wounds and other injuries have changed in nature.

A figure is being dragged across the yard away from you by two hulking ogres towards an obvious headsman's block, one of the ogres is carrying a large evil axe, one handed. Looking around the yard you can see several more of these ogres all carrying assault rifles, they look like they are awaiting orders and it is obvious that you are the one they are expecting to give those orders. As you watch the man being dragged comes into the light, it is (Character Threes Name).

The yard is just a small part of a larger complex, it appears to be a military camp of some kind, long barracks can be seen and huge razor wire tipped walls dotted with watchtowers. As you watch it becomes obvious that in fact it is a prison camp. Searchlights comb the area just inside the walls and ogres man large machine guns in the towers.

Beyond the walls you can see the skyline of Kowloon, however it has changed considerably, many of the buildings have been partially destroyed. Only one building is intact and that is lit up like a Christmas tree, you see something take off from its roof, something like a helicopter...but wrong. The sky is covered in thick black cloud that is lit by an unknown source a hellish tinge, although there is a fairly brisk wind, the clouds are not budging an inch.

One of the ogres approaches you hesitantly "What are your orders, Commandant?"

GM's Notes

Right about now you are probably looking a little confused, so I had better explain:

In the New World of the Legion, the contemporary Juncture has been completely overrun by demonic forces led by Mal Ank. Considering the advantages that many demons had over contemporary forces (bullet resistance, domination power and just being generally mind paralysingly scary). Many of the worlds military forces were paralysed into inactivity through mis-information and confusion when faced with a ravening horde of ghouls, ogres, goblins and worse creatures (see below). The world fell after five years of fitful, spasmodic battle.

It must also be remembered that the Lodge, although powerful are relatively few in number and are used to the subtle manipulation of events, rather than an outright invasion. The main players of the Lodge are now trying to come to terms with their sudden change in circumstances. Pretty soon there will be a series of breakouts from concentration camps across the world, as Innerwalkers from all the different factions that are operating in the Contemporary Juncture escape and make a break for their own different bolt holes.

The State of the World

Surprisingly, the initial confrontation was fairly bloodless. With the exception of the initial bloodbath in the Soviet Union and one or two massacres since then, the demon's readily excepted prisoners, disarmed them, sent them home and treated them well. News of this spread like wildfire through the world's armed forces causing mass "defections", whenever the demons appeared on the field of battle. The story spread that, the invaders were actually alien invaders who had arrived an d were actually on a peaceful mission to purge us of our war-like natures. Their fearsome nature was purely a cruel trick of nature.

Pretty soon the only forces fighting the Legion were the remains of the Lodge and their Pledged cohorts. They knew the real story and fought a guerrilla war. Mal Ank's plan was to round mankind up and use them like cattle, just killing them was too easy, he wanted them to suffer. Many of his troops needed more than flesh for sustenance, they needed their victim's fear, hopes and dreams to keep them fed. Mankind is now rounded up into ghettos all around the world where they are tortured daily by their captors, dissidents and trouble makers are sent to the Kowloon Re-education Centre for special treatment (i.e. slow torture then death).

Mal Anks troops were on the whole, pretty stupid, and however much they hated it, were pretty used to following orders given by humans. Mal Ank took advantage of this by placing intelligent ruthless mortals in positions of power. These mortals he chose from the many occult circles and demon worshippers that he found flourishing in the Contemporary Juncture. The ruthless Ninja Ryu, The Fists of Corruption came to the fore in this mad and brutal power struggle and now occupy many of the more important posts. The Fists meanwhile are wondering what has become of their beloved Mother of Corruption (see the Kowloon Ripper and the House of Books). Mal Ank has also embraced technology with both arms, indeed he has awakened the spirits of several useful tools (guns, helicopters, tanks, lawnmowers, blenders etc.).

That's when everything went wrong for Mal Ank. His control of the Contemporary Juncture means that he also controls the 2056 Juncture and is present there also, this caused a paradox that is supposed to be impossible within the world of Feng Shui. To rectify this another version of Mal Ank has been brought into existence and both versions have been cursed with not being able to enter the Netherworld and the Underworld.

The Contemporary version has been trapped in the Contemporary Juncture for twelve years, years that have been very busy, what with the invasion and cruelly quelling any sign of resistance. The 2056 version has been trapped for over seventy years however, the majority of the time with nothing to do. The Future Mal Ank has figured out why he is trapped and has decided to kill his past self, so that he can roam the time streams at will (don't think about it too deeply).

Unable to travel himself, Future Mal Ank sends assassination squads made up of demons and humans. Future Mal Ank has found that these squads are too evenly matched with the bodyguards of Contemporary Mal Ank and has decided to augment them with captured Arcanowave devices and has even captured some Innerwalker Arcano Technicians and is conducting his own research into improving his Arcano arsenal. The irony of course is that, the Legion of Vengeful Darkness has become the Buro and is run in very similar ways, Chinese demons are very bureaucratic.

The Modifiers for the different junctures is as follows:











69 AD

























Ok, hope that did not confuse you too much, back to the scenario

Taking Stock

Character Four should be able to rescue his fellow Dragons and they can all meet in the Commandants home. The home is plush and well decorated with some of best-plundered treasures from Victoria Peak. It contains many different weapons including any Signature Weapons that the heroes may be missing. There they will discover the following information, in the form of a diary kept by DeathScream:

Now that the heroes have gathered some information, it is very necessary for them to flee back to the Netherworld and let The Prof. know what is going on.  This can be done several ways, the easiest being, commandeering a jeep or other vehicle and simply driving out of the camp, Deathscream is the Commandant remember.

Once they have time to think about it, they will realise that they are still attuned to the Williamson Estate FS site, all the others that they may have been attuned to have been taken from them. The Williamson Estate is quite close and has a (rather tempermental) gateway to The Netherworld hidden in the greenhouse.

Of Course, this is Feng Shui so the heroes will not be able to make a straight getaway, let them think they are going to be able to escape and then allow DeathDream, some Ogre Mooks and an Awakened Tank to catch up with them.

Road Rage II

A few minutes after the heroes escape the prison camp, the silence is shattered by a screeching siren, which sounds like a soul in torment (it probably is) and the darkness is shattered by the wild waving of searchlights. Pretty soon after this Deathdream and his troops catch up with the heroes.

Cool Things that can Happen

At the Manor House

The Dragons should get too their base without a great deal of extra trouble. It is deserted with graffiti sprayed on all the walls, obviously all changes made to the building have disappeared as they never happened. The gardens and drive is hideously overgrown with skeletal looking bushes and trees. The heroes will now have to wait at the Feng Shui site for the Netherworld Portal too open. In any normal game this wait would be uneventful, but this is Feng Shui.

The Critical Shift has had profound effects upon everyone, not least Shih Yet Kwai, one time owner of the Kowloon House of Books. She has been running and hiding from the demonic hordes for several years now and in doing so has learnt many of the skills necessary for her survival. The meek and mild girl that the heroes once knew has been replaced by a battle scared veteran of many a vicious battle for survival, she has never met the heroes and treats them with a great deal of suspicion.

The new Shih Yet Kwai is still beautiful in a "hard" sort of way. A single scar that bisects her left eye has marred perfect features and her body is muscle toned in a way that is very pleasing to the eye. It is obvious that these muscles have not been gained through toil in a gym, but from the daily struggle for survival. Shih also totes various weapons with a familiarity that is alien to her former self.

As luck would have it, Shih managed to assassinate one of DeathShrieks trusted bodyguards two days ago and has been on the run ever since, she has (obviously) holed up in the manor house that the heroes are fleeing too. So the situation is that two teams of killers are now heading towards the Manor House hunting two different quarries.

When the heroes arrive at the Williamson estate, Shih will see them and mistaking them for Members of the League of Vengeful Darkness (especially if the Commandant character is still wearing his "uniform") and stalk and attack them as they explore the mansion. Shih has a den in the attic of the Mansion house and is able keep an eye on all that approach the Estate.

Cool Things that can Happen

Once the heroes have subdued Shih Yet Kwai, they will have to try and explain to them that they are friends. Of course she does not remember the heroes at all, and is confused by any stories they tell of the House of Books being overrun by Eunuch Sorcerers. Shih and her Grandfather ran the House of Books right up until the Legion invaded Hong Kong. Her Grandfather was killed in the initial fighting and she was captured and interred in a concentration camp. While in the camp, situated on a small island of the mainland, she fell in with a group of traffic wardens, accountants and teachers, who all exhibited surprising combat skills. They called themselves The Pledged, although they never explained who they were pledged too, they said that it didn't matter anymore.

They were able to engineer a riot in the camp and in the chaos, escape. Shih became separated from the others and never saw them again. She made it to the mainland and has spent the ensuing months since then surviving in the ruins and scrounging what she could. Shih made a concerted effort to avoid conflict with The Legion, but at times it was unavoidable.

A couple of days ago Shih Yet Kwai had the (mis)fortune of having DeathShriek in the sights of a stolen sniper rifle, not being able to pass up the opportunity of avenging the death of her Grandfather, she squeezed the trigger.  Unfortunately one of DeathShrieks bodyguards was killed instead, and Shih has found herself hunted by the dead bodyguards lover, Cong Kien. Cong has finally located Shih's bolthole and has launched an attack on the manor house. This attack has gone undetected because the normally vigilant Shih has been distracted by the intrusion of the heroes.

Battle in the Manor House, Part Two

Cong Kien has brought along a large contingent of Fist of Corruption Mooks as well as Ogre Demon Mooks.

Cool Things that can Happen

In the Netherworld

The heroes find themselves in a large chamber that contains several obvious Netherworld portals, these portals appear to be mirrors made out of a dark smoky quartz, of some kind. None of these portals are open at the moment. A single narrow passage leads from this chamber. Sitting in the centre of the cavern meditating is Kar Fai he seems unaware of your presence.

If he is roused he will be pleased to see the Dragons and will ask to be introduced to Shih Yet Kwai, as they have not met yet. He will state that he was hoping that they would be able to escape from the 1997 Juncture, as he has no information as too what is happening there at all.

He will lead the heroes too the Junkyard and into the remains of the USS Nautilus, a nuclear submarine that The Prof. is using as a headquarters. Both Kar Fai and The Prof. will question the heroes on what they already know and will be able to give the following information themselves;

Once all the parties have been brought up too speed on the latest happenings in the Secret War, then plans can be made as to how this menace can be combated.


When the Dragons use the Gatemaker (tm) the portal that opens is a swirling blue vortex stepping into this leads the heroes into a darkened series of rooms that are very well appointed, if a little dusty. There are a series of living rooms, a kitchen stocked with expensive, but rotting food, a worship/meditation room, well appointed guest bedrooms and an armoury. Inside this room can be found many, many different types of weapon that they may need, also here can be found Black Camo suits and face paint, of the type used by special force units world-wide.

A ladder out of one of the disused rooms leads up to trapdoor in the ceiling, this trapdoor opens into a worship room that has the mural of a dragon on the floor (the trapdoor opens in the head, and is hidden. After investigation, the Dragons discover that they are in the ruins of Master Zheng's Dragon Dojo, as damaged sign states. The dojo was once the site of a massive battle and discarded weapons and skeletons litter the floor alongside the remains of creatures that are not easily identified.

The Journey to Toyworld is only a short one, but it is very unnerving. The sky is even darker than it was before, the clouds swirling as if propelled by an unnatural force. Many of the buildings that the Dragons pass have been at least partially destroyed. Smiling skullfaces have been painted on many of the still standing walls of these buildings. The only constant is the Mcphearson Building, a green sickening light glows from many of its windows, and strange half helicopters, half Demon things can be seen leaving and arriving from the rooftop helipad.

Pretty soon ToyWorld can be seen, it was once a large toy superstore, much like a warehouse, but that has now all changed. The once gaudy cheerful animals that decorated the signs and entrance to the store have been daubed with blood that looks suspiciously fresh, but most horrific of all, are the climbing frames and swing's that have been left in the car park of this building. Human heads and skulls hang from these once innocent children playthings. A light as if from a campfire can be seen flickering from within.

The situation

As it turns out the Legion of Vengeful Darkness are aware of the weakness that the McPheason building has and have taken steps to correct it.

ToyWorld has been turned into a shrine to the Great God Punch, the interior of the store is very dark with rows and rows of shelves of toys. A large punch and Judy display at the far end of the shop has been turned into a shrine, upon which toys from the shop are left as sacrifices. Crucified on metal poles either side of the shrine are two corpses. One is dressed as Judy and is obviously female; the other is dressed in an RHKP uniform, above the shrine is the skin from a giant albino aligator.

 The interior of the store is very dark, lit by guttering torches at infrequent points. The toys within the store have been meticulously placed on the shelves in ordered rows. The cash registers are full of money taken from the children's victims. The Tribe of Punch themselves, are camped mainly in the play area in the centre of the store. They sleep in play tents and Wendy houses.

A thirteen-year-old boy, who goes by the name of Skullface, leads the Tribe, he is armed with two razor sharp yo-yo's. The ages of the tribe range from 8 - 11 and they are armed with specially adapted Nerf (tm) bows and throwers, makeshift spears, slingshot fired marbles, adapted water pistols and rifles loaded with acid and any other cool toy based weapons that you can think of

Cool Things that can Happen

Behind the main body of the shop is a large warehouse area where the toys were stored before they were placed on the shelves. These toys have been left undisturbed, however there are significant gaps in the toy soldier and model aeroplane and robot section. At the far end of the warehouse it seems that someone or thing has spilled the entire stores supply of Lego on the floor, this mountain of plastic covers the secret entrance to the sewers. The warehouse is very dark, with the only available light coming from electric torches at various points. The floor is dusty and shows the passage of many small feet (some of these feet are tiny indeed.  Various mook dolls protect the warehouse, Mr Punch may make a comeback and a Lego Golem protects the entrance to the sewers.

Cool Things that can happen

Once the Dragons have dealt with the Lego Golem and have cleared away the remaining Lego they find a hidden hatchway. This hatchway is fitted with an electronic silent alarm that sounds in the McPhearson building and can be disabled with an Intrusion roll of 12.

Below the hatchway is a ladder that leads into a dank sewer. This darkened area is the lair of a Kun Kal, a Sewage Demon it has been placed here to stop anyone from attempting to infiltrate the Mcphearson Building from this route.

The Basement

The basement contains all the paraphernalia that would be used to print large amounts of newspapers and magazines, huge rolls of paper, large containers of ink and fork lift trucks to move them about. The paper and ink and other consumables are all kept on rows of shelves, the only exits from the basement are a freight elevator and one doorway that leads to the stairway that serves as a fire escape.

The basement also contains several offices, once used by the storehouse staff, boiler, incinerator and the main air conditioning unit. Through this unit it is possible to access all of the other floors (think of Die Hard) although the Dragons had better have some sort of climbing aids, like rope and not suffer from claustrophobia. All of these items are in a poor state of repair, having not been maintained for years.

The basement has one guardian, a Paper Elemental; the chance of encountering this creature is pretty slim. The Paper elemental rolls its Perception (2) against the lowest Intrusion in the group every ten minutes. Off course if anyone fires a weapon the Elemental will be upon them in two sequences.

As the Dragons find the air conditioning unit, a portal unmistakably generated by a Gatemaker(tm), irises open between them and the unit. The grey swirling mist is undisturbed for several moments (long enough for the heroes to find some cover), then a demon that looks like a walking mountain (Lord Smash) emerges from the portal looks around and then heads over too the air conditioning unit.  He is followed by a humanoid rat demon that carries two obvious Arcanowave weapons and a human (probably) who has a large gem embedded in his chest, he is armed with a dragon hilted sword and is carrying a large metal suitcase. The human lays the case down near the Air conditioning unit, opens it, and starts to do something with its contents. The Dragons here an ominous beeping.

Cool Things That can Happen

The bomb is extremely simple to set, but very hard to disarm it will take 3 separate Fix-It rolls to disarm the bomb at Diff: 10. Each roll will take 10 seconds to perform and they will only have 40 seconds to disarm the bomb once they reach it. The time taken to reach it does not count any time fighting Death Wish and Co. they can take as long as they want doing this, they will still have 40 seconds to disarm the bomb. Let them have a last roll at 2 seconds if they fluff the last roll, because that is what is always happens in the movies.

This is an assassination squad sent by the future Mal Ank to kill his past self.  The case contains a portable nuclear device powerful enough to destroy most of the Island of Hong Kong. Lord Smash has a small crystal wand that he believes will be able to open a portal to the 2056 juncture, he is wrong. Mal Ank has sent the three on a one way trip, they had all annoyed him someway and this is his way of killing two birds (well several million flocks actually) with one stone.

McPhearson Newscorp HQ

Although the exterior of the building has not changed at all, the interior has changed out of all recognition. The interior décor of the building has changed a great deal. The overall theme could be called "Organic Horror".

The defences of the building are also many-fold

I ran this encounter completely freeform taking most of my cues from what the players expected or suggested. It developed as a running battle between Mal Ank his cronies and the heroes, Mal Ank should escape. In fact this was the first time my group of heroes got their clocks severely cleaned and he didn't as much escape as they let him go. They guessed about the Chernobyl connection from the wall mural and activated their Gatemaker.

VR Hell

However your group may be luckier or less observant in which I suggest you use the VR Hell option. As the heroes are moving through the rooms of the Macphearson building, they will eventually come to a lift that opens invitingly for them. If they enter it they will be gassed as the lift slowly climbs to the twelfth floor, call for Constitution rolls, but don't say what the TN is. The character that makes the highest roll is the only one not to succumb to the gas and manages to wake the others before the lift arrives at the twelfth floor. Look relieved as if the scenario has just narrowly avoided a major derailment.

Actually all the heroes have fallen unconscious and are now in the VR created by the Executioner, this is designed to accentuate the suffering of the victim and is a good time for you to recreate their battles of old against vanquished foes.  If your players are anything like mine they have some seriously epic battles in their Dramatic Stories. Time to revisit them and see what happens when you aren't protected by plot immunity.

I suggest that you stage this battle in an arena created from different pieces of each characters own background or history with one opponent from each characters past, rather than a series of battles that may seriously frag them up. Also allow them to completely heal before hand, just as if a session has come to an end, maybe it did.

At some point during the fight, one of the heroes (preferably one that has got up close and personal with a foe) notices that his foe is pixelated. The foes aren't real, but the damage they deal is.

Once this battle has been dealt with the Executioner will appear in his headsmans guise to purge the virus from his system. The Magic Schtick, Creation refers to his ability to control reality within Cyberworld. Once he is beaten he will tell the heroes the information that they need to know. He is not aware of what happened on the Titanic.

Once the heroes learn the information they need the VR world dies with its creator and they awaken on beds wired to some organic machine that is dying as they watch. They can now return to Kai Far with what they have learnt.

Back in the Netherworld

Kar Fai is extremely interested in what the Dragons have to report and suggests that the heroes try to return to Chernobyl and stop the Demons invading. The Prof. and he can any weapons and explosives, that they may require for the task and can lead the herpes to the Mirror of the Soul, that should be able to lead them to 1986.

Before enter the Mirror, the Prof. warns them of the dangers of this strange site and gives each of them a backpack that looks like a product of weird science and crackles with sorcerous power.  These backpacks are Probability Manipulation Devices (PMD) and doubles the amount of Fortune points that each character has available.

These extra Fortune Points should swing the battle with their Dopplegangers in the Mirror.  When they exit the mirror they find themselves on a snowy hill overlooking the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station.  It is late evening and in the distance can be seen the lights of a city (Kiev).


Ivanovich Dragumov, a Russian General, arrived earlier in the evening and is now preparing for the Legion of Vengeful Darkness' invasion. He is within the control room, with his bodyguards and a small contingent of guards.  He has ritually sacrifised the engineers that work within the staion and is waiting for the right moment, to complete the ritual.  This has obviously all been done under the influence of the Whisperer.

A larger contingent of mooks have been positioned outside in the station proper, they know where the general is, but not what he is doing.

Cool Things that can Happen

When Dragumov has been dispatched (as he must), the heroes will discover to their horror that it is they who have triggered the demonic invasion.   Maybe one of the Guards or his body guards will accidently kill him if your players aren't playing along.

As he expires, The Whisperer will become visible and disentangle itself from his corpse and charged by the mystical energy that Dragomuv has generated in the room be able to open a small gate into hell itself.  This Gateway swiftly grows until the heroes find themselves in hell itself.

The Titanic - Finale (at last)

The Heroes should swiftly return to Kar Fai and the Prof.  to report these happenings.  Both will swiftly come to the conclusion that the heroes must stop Dragumov from being infested by the demon in the first place.  There is a way to do this but the Heroes aren't going to like it.

The Mirror of the Soul sends them where they need to be and as such could put them in the position of stopping the demonic infestation.  Unfortuanatley it does mean that they will have to face their dopplegangers one more time.

The Mirror

This is where you should finally give the players a break.  The Mother of Corruption controls The Mirror of the Soul and she is a little ticked off (to say the least) at the way that her followers have been misled and abused (see The Fists of Corruption).   To get her revenge for this, she has decided to aid the heroes in their task.

When the Dopplegangers approach the heroes, the mist will clear and the Mother of Corruption will be revealed in all her hideous , and mind boggingly massive glory (think of a sort of female Cthulhu) working strings on the dopplegangers, she will sever the strings with an evil and wicked knife, the size of a small bus.  The dopplegangers fall to the ground and dissipate.  The heroes can then exit the mirror.

A Night to Remember

The Heroes emerge into a small room with two bunkbeds, they are obviously on board a ship (they can feel the engines running, through the floor) and are probably deep in the bowels of the ship.  Chests on the floor contain more suitable clothing, overalls and caps as worn in the early part of the century, homespun yet comfortable.  They must now find the infant Dragumov, before he is infested and get him of the ship.

I suggest you run this as fairly freeform, rolling with the punches that your players throw you, here are some of the incidents that I included when I ran the game

The battles themselves could range right across the ship, the range of possible of stunts are almost limitless to list here.  Go Wild Secret Referee.

If they defeat Mal Ank and Dragumov isn't infested, then they are successful and the world returns to normal with no death camps.  The outbreak of Bird Flu however was much more virulent however resuklting in thousands of deaths world-wide.

Congratulate your players, they are worthy of the mantle, Dragons.

Distinguishing Marks: Cheng is a zombie, his skin has an unhealthy greenish tinge and he bears the scars of many different injuries that he has sustained over the years, his eyes are blazing pits of hate. The uppermost part of the stake that was used to impale him is still protruding from his skull Notes Cheng's Sorcery skill reflects his knowledge of Magic, rather than his ability to use it. He is not a mindless zombie, just a little slow whited. He can be permanently stopped only when Mal Ank is sent back to the Underworld.

The Whisperer, Ethereal Demon

Bod 3 Chi 2 (Mag 3) Mnd 12 Ref 6

Skills: Creature Powers 13, Deceit 19

Creature Shticks: Insubstantial/Difficulty is inch thickness can't travel through worked stone, irons, plastics jade and glass.

Flight/Can fly 5m.

Damage Immunities/The attacks in parenthesis are the exceptions to the rule.  Normal bullets, hand- to- hand weapons (Magic and knives), Unarmed attacks (Fu Powers), Creature Powers (Abysmal Spines, Blast and Brain Shredder), Normal fire, Falling damage, Things falling on you, Poisons (Mustard gas and Strychnine), Suffocation and Drowning, explosions, vehicles and vehicle crashes.

Domination (X5)/The Whisperer can for the cost of 5 Magic points bond with a mortal and guide his actions as an invisible friend/guardian angel. This bonding lasts until the host dies. The Whisperer very rarely uses his Domination power, as the host believes that the advice he is receiving is beneficial. The Whisperer is usually bonded with infants and babies who have a great destiny, the host then grows up believing the Whisperer to be a guardian or even mistakes the Demons suggestions as his own thoughts.  Player characters are normally immune to this effect (code for: it's a plot device).

Weapon:  ineffectual tentacle lash (4)

Sample Dialogue: "Father is all that stands between me/you/us and power, kill him now"

Distinguishing Marks: The Whisperer, when not bonded appears to be a semi transparent giant jelly fish that floats through the air, it has two eyestalks and a beak with which it can communicate.

Notes: Although the Whisperer is immune to almost everything the players can throw at it and could possibly (very, very) slowly beat them to death with its tentacles, it is in fact a great coward and will flee rather than fight once exposed. Having said that, it will goad the Host into fighting almost recklessly if it can see no alternative.
