We have a new campaign going, where we are all a superhero family fending off Kaiju from Australia’s sunny shores! It’s using the Sentinel Comics RPG, based on the Sentinels of the Multiverse co-op card game (which we have also played a lot of.)
Collection 1: Kaiju Defense: Next Gen
First Session – “Fire on the Deep”
Giant sea serpents and pretty darn big fleas attack an oil rig of the Australian coast and need fending off! It’s hard yakka!
Second Session – “Scared Heart Hospital”
The fleas have infected everyone with chest-bursting fleas and we have to go flea stomping yet again, and end up fighting a giant mutated dog in a trailer park with many bogans looking on.
Third Session – “Between the Tasmanian Devil and the Deep Blue Sea”
The heroes have to go defend a supervillain transport barge from the attack of a giant mutated kaiju. You’d think the yobbos would be grateful, but of course not.
Fourth Session – “Melbourne Nights”
The Vegemite factory in Melbourne is at risk from not one but two kaiju! The heroes must overcome their greatest hurdle yet – getting to Melbourne from Sydney.
Fifth Session – “Basic Cthulhus and Catwomen”
The Dijkstra Museum of History in Sydney is threatened both by a giant sea kaiju called “Squidface” from without and from Ermine and the Gentleman (think Catwoman/Black Cat and Gentleman Ghost before he dies and becomes a ghost) inside. And our emo bro Nightwalker gets sucked into some bad dimension.
Sixth Session – “Advanced Cthulhus and Catwomen”
X-Celerate hooks up with villainess Ermine and gets to know her intimately and impregnates her. At the same time, the Nexus of the Void gets to know Nightwalker intimately and impregnates him. We rescue one of the two of them. Finally we go to a big spooky mansion to have it out with Cthulhu (aka the Herald of xxtz’Hulissh).
Collection 2: Title TBD
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!
