Numenera: Discovered Destiny

Behind the Veil

(Post covering past two games) >> I’m seeing some strange doubling effects in this posts results, so if you can’t read everything let me know, I have it saved.

Well.. things have changed in the vortex living area these days. The group, having infiltrated the cult, managed to locate the escaped girls (Evanna) brother (Shome) and during a group dinner, they managed to rescue the brother from Abrassal’s chambers but things got bloody soon after.
.
Most all the residents left from dinner to head up to the Vortex for some woship time and Talos decided to drop a web grenade under four of the residents feet as they awaited the elevator. It went off as he stepped back and Hansom transformed into ‘the wolf’ and had a lone showdown with Abrassal. After defeating the leader of the cult, the wolfs bloodlust took over and he went and slaughtered the trapped people, including Gregor, the second in command, Fean, the smartest member of the cult and creator of the notebook that was the guide to the cult’s transporting home. Next to die was Ashlin, Duranis and Nile.
.
With the compound pretty much wiped out, all that were left alive were Relle, who had a fight with Jackie and was captured. Her thumbs were broken and when it came down to ‘what happens to you next’ discussion, she opted to go her own way at the next stop but would like to be able to return one day to have honorable hand to hand combat with Jacke in a fair fight.
.
Also surviving was Norrid, the ‘far twin’ of Hawmet, who after a day of though on the matter, decided to stick with the new leaders of the facility, wanting to explore the connection with the person (hawmet) who looked just like him.
.
Last to survive from the facility was Savra, the elderly woman who took kindly to one of the groups members and decide to stay on with the new family, not having much anywhere to go.
.
While the team was a little taken back by the slaughter that took place (not something they had planned), the made the best of the situation and moved onward.
.
The next strange thing that went on was now that Abrassal was dead, there was a ‘voice’ that was able to come through and deliver a message to the group which included directions to another room in the huge facility where they could ‘get dressed for the party’, from the strange alien voice.
.
The group, inticed by the promise of a wish, followed the voice’s instructions to the room where they ended up getting dipped in some smart liquid armor that enabled them to go through the vortex unharmed. (There was some strange goings on in this room, most notably which resulted in the following:
> a strange bird/cat creature was created and is now roaming the facility.
> Jackie can never get thirsty again.
> Hansom is 3 inches taller.
> Talos learned a new language that had concepts he couldn’t understand and couldn’t find a use for it anywhere, but he could speak and understand it… but no one else in the world does.
.
Through the Vortex!
.
The group then went into the vortex and quickly found the facility was nearing its final hours of collapsing and that the other side of the vortex was a floating facility that exists inside the sun.
.
Going through the facility a couple of the group found out the dangers of splitting up the party when they ran into a floating ‘knight’ defender of the facility with an energy sword who would hit so hard that it breached their protective armor and the 180 degree heat would seep in and further damage them. They ran and regrouped.
.
Back together and with some solid shooting by Hansom (a couple of 20’s that took out the defenders shield and then sword the next round), they managed to take it down.
.
With some discoveries about what lived in the facility (various energy life forms in large column/tubes, they finall reached a room with a large wall panel that allowed them to speak to the being that had reached out to them, one of the residents of the facility who let them know all he could about who they were and the danger they were in.
.
They had the option to try and use the ‘wishing well’ in the next room, which it couldn’t explain how to operate or to go into the room down the hallway and ‘exile’ them somewhere else before the facility crumbled around them.
.
With a great roll of 20 by the groups Nano, they learned that the ‘wishing well’, a floating sphere of energy, need to be manipulated by ‘3 inputs’, and with that clue, they finally managed to learn how to manipulate it and started making their wishes.
.
Two of the wishes were needed and used to reconstruct the facility back into stable position and found that each wish they made made the next wish harder to formulate. Knowing their wishes were limited they began to put careful though into them but a few things took place in the first couple rounds of wishing.
.
> Jackie wished her ex lover, a man who was out to kill her, dead. She saw a vision of his death as the wish came to pass.
> Hansom wished for full control of his changing into ’ the wolf ‘. The wish was granted and included an empathetic link to the creature from the other dimension that he would swap with.
> Talos wished to turn into an energy form being that could control other mechanical beings and was turned into a ’Radiance Knight’, that they fought earlier and lost his mortal body. >> He followed that up with another wish to make it to where he could keep his mortal form and switch into this form once per day and further spent xp to be able to do that at will, becoming the first Were-Robot.
> Hawmet wished for full control of the vortex facility and is now able to make it appear at any of it’s established locations whenever he wanted and was able to know about and direct the Angel of Steel, the guardian of the Vortex.
.
There may have been one or two more wishes but I don’t recall them at the moment.
Difficulty was currently used up at 5, costing 5 int pool for most everyone except jackie, who had only used the first ‘easy’ wish
.
Aka the following:
Jackie next wish at D5.
Everyone else next wish at D6 (Unless I missed stuff)
