Our second collection of six issues (game sessions) of the Sentinel Comics RPG hits newsstands! In a desperate bid from alliteration, we go from Australia to Argentina to Atlantis over the course of the arc. We ally with El Genio, fight The Heretic, and then alternately ally with and fight the Luminary/Baron Blade.
You don’t really “level up” in Sentinels RPG, you just can do anything from swap little things to rebuild at the end of a collection. I (The Yowie) don’t change much but others do.
We’ve gotten used to the rules and the “ticking clock” of each combat. I do wish there was a little more texture to the rules – you really need to min-max those dice to get successes, and there’s not much to do with them if you don’t have a power other than the basic moves, so we have started doing the same moves a lot.
Follow along with our exploits!
Seventh Session – “We Come From A Land Down Under”
We travel from Australia to Argentina to earn our “international Kaiju hunter” certification from GLOBAL. There a giant hydra is molesting both the livestock and the gauchos. We fend it off with the help of El Genio (think El Santo), who is laid low in the process.
Eighth Session – “The Serpent and the Rainbow”
The heroes take on an Argentinian black site with a super-scientist in residence. Then things get really weird and we go deal with a bunch of gods of the Guarani people, including a set of challenges from Jasy Jatere and a wrestling match with Teju Jagua to get some juice from the infinita fruit to heal El Genio.
Ninth Session – “American Serpent”
The Heretic demands 300 billion pesos or else he’ll destroy the Los Caracoles Dam and flood a lot of San Juan. We defeat the hydra and head out to find the Heretic, who has taken refuge in a vineyard and winery. Little does he realize that we are Australian and drinking plonk is one of our superpowers!
Tenth Session – “Armenian Vodka”
We get our own rooms back at Kaiju Defence Inc. headquarters until we are interrupted by a host of giant tentacles. Then we go sit down for a lovely Mordengradian lunch with what turns out to be the deposed Baron Blade aka the Luminary aka Ivan Romanat! Well obviously we have to team up with him to go to Atlantis…
Eleventh Session – “The Inevitable Betrayal”
Baron Blade turns on us and sics Cthulhu on us. We try to look surprised. He bails after we grind his forces to cornmeal and smack Space Cthulhu around. Piece of piss.
Twelfth Session – “Reality Discontinuity”
The Abyssal freaks out and goes dark magic crazy. But we need to go to a super hero convention, Freedom Con! More chaos than usual ensues.
