Aeon A-Team S03E02 - Subway System Shock


Dramatis Personae
Alexander Griffith aka Singularity (played by +Natiel Leealexander): a starving college student who moonlights as a private detective and a "failed" superhero (he was one of the first back in 2000). After his partner died he burned his costume.
Aysella Shinjitai aka Marionette (played by +Ann LS): a telekinetic who can detect Kyberian Energy, use telepathy, and boost or dampen other metahuman powers.
Hobs Ini-Herit aka The Alchemist (played by +Christian Gelacio): a straight-up matter controller with super-strength and devastating good looks.
Roth Reynard aka Red Zone (played by +Troy Loy): a super-genius with flame powers and a fear of heights.

Severus U. "Sue" Edgeworth (NPC Ally): Young angry man. "Super-normal" who's insanely good at hand-to-hand combat, infiltration, and other spy/military skills. What kind of name is Sue? It's the one he gave himself. Mock it at your own risk.
Sarah "Ras" Rasmussen aka Suicide Girl (NPC Ally): Girl with a deathwish. Gained superhuman powers after Aysella tried to save her from her wounds. This awakened her dormant abilities. Superhumanly strong, tough, and capable of extreme regeneration.


Meanwhile...
Heading down into the subway, the PCs follow their hired gun "Chu" as they look for Micheal who's been transforming into some kind of energy being and driven insane.

80th Street & Liberty Avenue, Queens, NY 11417

Micheal Streetwood (now calling himself "KillerWatt") has in his rage hurt several civilians and threatened dozens of others with livewires he's controlling like his own limbs. When the PCs enter the area, Marionette does her best to talk Streetwood down, but is ignored. Fearing for the lives of the civilians she performs a massive feat of telekinetic power and pulls every single hostage out of reach of KillerWatt before he can do anything to them. Meanwhile, Singularity uses his signature ability and creates a microscopic blackhole to occupy KillerWatt. With a rapid and fantastic show of teamwork, the PCs combine their abilities to knockout KillerWatt by heating him up (Redzone and Sue) and then creating an in insulated capacitor to contain him (Hobs and Marionette). After he's contained they talk about what to do with him for a while and ultimately decide they will have to let AEGIS contain him.


Aftermath
The PCs decide to invest heavily into reconditioning Riker's Island as a prison for metahumans and to increase their funding for metahuman physiology - in the long term, this is the only way they'll be able to combat what's becoming a growing problem (MAD).


After Action Report/Rules Notes
While another short session it was also really productive. The players spent a lot of time talking theoreticals about what they intended to do with their characters and how they wanted to approach various problems. The issue of metahuman containment was talked about a LOT. One thing we also spent time discussing was which team the PCs were going to switch to at the beginning of next year since we only had one more game with the A-Team. It was decided that they'd switch to the Valiants (one of the established superhero teams in Aeon cannon), another New York City-based team. More on this later.

This session was also a little short as we got started later than usual due to traffic and getting meal prep done.
