Thirty-First Session – The Lighthouse goes to Aegis, but the B Team goes to Oberon to help out Scrooge McDuck. But it goes from The Italian Job to Aliens in one fell swoop.
In a welcome break from negotiating with endless waves of bureaucrats, our secondary characters head out to another system to recover what is supposed to be a huge wad of loot. We conduct breakins, home invasions, abuse the homeless – we’re like an alien crime wave hitting the Oberon system. But then when we go to the vault, it’s empty of loot but full – of KLICKS!
We had a lot of fun this session. We’re at our best when we’re on the loose and scheming and innovating ways to get the answers we need. We’re baaaaaaaaad men! The best parts were when Peppin dressed as the “Miner ’49er” and psychically phased through the wall of the government building, to find himself in a rhodium mining exhibit, and then coming across the revolutionary vandal there. The man threw his back out crapping himself in fear, apparently. “A G-g-g-g-g-ghost!!!” And when the man later, at the Tim Horton’s, said that he hadn’t eaten solid food in a while. I don’t know why I found that so funny, but I was incapacitated with laughter for a long time. I was like “What, do you live on Thunderbird and semen?” Finally, the sweep and clear in the vault was bracing.
Taking a week off helped us get back into the swing of things, I think. Fun was had by all!
