Snapshots from the Secret War


Below is a "flyer" that I have sent out to some players who are interested in Feng Shui, but are not sure if it is quite their thing... I took my inspiration from the layout of the Daedalus rulebooks introduction. All the examples are things that have happened in my two main campaigns (or at least they are the way people remember them.

Enjoy


Puk Chan, Martial Artist protects his comatose companion as the ambulance they are in careers out of control, the driver shot through the head. This the second assassination attempt today, a day that started with a life and death struggle with a twenty foot tall demon lord in the streets of Kowloon. The motor cycle riding mooks pull level with the ambulance again, shattering the darkened windows with bursts from their Uzi's, grenades are thrown into the veering mercy wagon. Without thinking the Martial Artist kicks open the doors of the ambulance and pushes the gurney out onto the rain soaked streets. He "surf's" the gurney desperately trying to keep his balance, a wash of heat washes over him as the ambulance explodes with a deafening BOOM! He readjustshis grip on his katana as his would be killers roar towards him, aiming their SMG's...

The warehouse is a silent, the kind of silence that only falls after the noise of battle, bodies are strewn everywhere. Puk Chan tries to catch his breath, eyeing the fallen form of Ursula, the bear like woman who almost defeated him in single combat. Angel, the Redeemed Killer, is reloading and holstering his twin mini Uzi's, as his peers into the empty liftshaft. Jade, the beautiful and deadly Ghost, is trying to convince him that the bottom of liftshaft contains a portal that will transport them to another dimension. They are interrupted by the sound of arriving vehicles, Angel investigates, and can see men in military garb spilling of trucks clutching assault rifles. Two men step forward with shoulder mounted missile launchers. He shouts in alarm and runs, seemingly in slow motion, towards the lift shaft as the two missiles are launched. The three heroes throw themselves into the darkness of the shaft as the warehouse detonates behind them...

Angel slams his last clip into the Uzi as the sword wielding cultists charge again. Across the castle courtyard he can see Puk somersaulting through the air, avoiding the lightning blasts of the Sorcerer Chung Tzo, whilst Chang, uses his Tiger Style Kung Fu to fend of both of Chung Tzo's adopted sons, one huge and muscular, the other lithe, athletic and deadly with his dragon hilted sword. The enigmatic Jade has vanished, but the last he saw of her she was exchanging blasts of sorcerous fire with the shade of her murdered fiancÚ. Never has he dreamed that his blood would stain the snow in a castle in ancient China, but here he is. He smiles ruefully and swings into action...

They sprint through the streets of Nagasaki, Jade is clutching the pot of Healing Earth, that they managed to steal from the mystical garden in the centre of the special forces base. It is Angel's last hope, he has been transformed into a living statue by the Alabaster Javelin... Now all they have to do is get out of the city before nuclear bomb, that ends WWII goes off...

Angel empties both clips of his mini Uzi's into the strange martial artist who is scuttling towards him sideways, punching his foe of his feet and through the air. He watches in disbelief as the bullet wounds close up and his opponent leaps to his feet visibly glowing with chi and lunges towards him. As his feels rock hard hands pincering around his wrists, he knows that that this is really going to hurt...

Chang, Jade, Angel and Puk are fleeing for their lives in a blocky, grey, unresponsive truck from an equally grey, but much more nimble, attack helicopter. It is only Angels skill that keeps them from being turned into Swiss cheese by the miniguns on the chopper. Chang braces himself with one hand and aims his shotgun with the other, he knows that he really will only get one chance at this...

Jade feels the cold metal of the Glock against her forehead, and hears the distinctive KA-CHINK of a shotgun behind her. Her would be executors both fire at the same time, neither knowing that Jade is immune to their bullets. The sensation is strange as the bullets pass through her out of phase body and she is drenched in blood, but thankfully it is not hers.

Sammy "Six gun" Chang spins, avoiding the bullets that are flying all around him. Angel dives to the ground as Sammy opens up with his twin revolvers. Angel dives behind a bookshelf in order to reload and rethink his options... He is distracted to hear disgusting "organic" noises from where Sammy stood. Sammy has turned into a demon with *three* arms, each of these arms points a revolver at the redeemed assassin....
