The Truth is a Lie

Game Recap

Merrek receives a package at work, and inside is a cell phone
he gets his junior agent Agent Smith to trace the call.
It’s a female voice on the end one he recognizes, he thinks Starr, but it’s Athena.
She informs Merrek that Starr is once again back in the country, under new identity, she ask to meet with him.
They decide to meet 3pm at the Plaza convention centre 24 A
He’s unable to get the trace, it was too well encrypted.
Agent Smith asks him what was going on, and he just mumbles off something vague.
Merrek meets up with the rest of the group and informs us about what he learned.
Tennant Hacks into the city computers to get the blue prints of the building, as well as the surrounding city for escape routes and the like
We also get a list of the conferences, and guests staying in the building.
One conference that we sparks our interest is “Open your mind”, being run by Christine Shirley, She looks like Athena.
Open your mind isn’t a organization, but a conference run by her, its all about opening the mind, to further power it.
We meet, and she tells us that Starr is once again doing the work of Sibyl. Her new alias is Bethany Jones.
She is now working out of Sibyl Regional Headquarters.
Athena thinks Starr’s work with Sibyl, and Rhyming Diversify, have something to do with the Greys.
She asks that we relay whatever information we find to relay that back with her.
She tells us to use the cell phone to get into contact with her.
We start work giving ourselves only 4 days. Incase Starr leaves again
Reynolds starts to do surveillance.
Looking at the phone there are no seams to crack, doing an x-ray there is nothing out of place, I pass the x-rays around, and we suspect that it’s bugged.
Kalashnikov puts the number in his cell, and we put the phone in our vault.
Reynolds notices she leaves most day, and travels with an assistant, a nervous looking woman. and a driver. She goes to and from the office in a limo. She is driven to an downtown upscale apartment.
We Decide to go with the “Haste” Style job.
Tennant controls the traffic lights, in the surveillance van
Reynolds is on the ground
Booth is on the ground
Kalashnikov is waiting at the hotel
Merrek on the ground
Ajax on the ground
Reynolds notices a sedan is trailing behind Starr’s Limo
Kalashnikov doesn’t think that Starr is in the Limo.
Tennant starts the traffic jam, and everyone on the ground approaches the car
A fight ensues and other cars then our target explode around us
Starr shoots Ajax in the face, and he goes unconscious
Merrek is Killed during the encounter
Starr begins to run away, Reynolds keeps up with her, but Booth looses her.
Soon after Reynolds looses her.
Both puts the bodies in a basket hanging from the helicopter, but is unable to climb the rope. He has to run away on foot.
The helicopter flies away with the the deceased body of Merrek, and the now deceased body of Ajax.
Kalashnikov disguises himself as Starr and goes into her hotel.

The Body

In Attendance:


< BEGIN TRANSMISSION >
  • A month has past since the Cell last met. They have been busy establishing a new base of operations hidden underground beneath an abandoned store front.
  • They receive an alert indicating a park ranger reported a UFO had been spotted crashing in the area of West Kill Mountain.
  • The team assembled and flew to the location of the crash.
  • Arriving at the site of the crash the Cell discovered that there was no suitable place to land.
  • There was a trench scored into the ground and damage to the surrounding treetops.
  • General Ajax, Adam Booth, Alexei Kalashnikov, Special Agent Merrek and Robert Reynolds rappelled to the ground to secure the site. Alexei fell, but managed to save himself using Telekinesis.
  • At the end of the trench the cell found a saucer shaped craft made of a dull metal and measuring 15 feet across. The craft was partially entrenched into the ground. There was no visible damage.
  • The cell unsuccessfully searched for openings and were unable to open the craft.
  • While investigating they heard someone approaching. This turned out to be Ed Swanson, the park ranger who reported the crash. He was investigating the crash assuming it was a small plane.
  • The cell captured Swanson and discussed options for “silencing” him. After probing him to see what he knew (he hadn’t seen anything), the cell convinced him that the crash was a military operation gone wrong.
  • Booth marched the ranger back down to his main base station and requisitioned an ATV to take him back. Reynolds began trying to dig the craft out.
  • General Ajax used his Blue Fly contacts to requisition a cargo helicopter to move the craft. The General and his co-pilot Terrance McGovern then headed back to the cell HQ to pick up members of the cell support team. The team consisted of:
  • After swapping helicopters at a nearby air force base, the strike team headed back to the crash site.
  • The strike team returned to the crash sight and Brambo, Jones and O’Brien rappelled to the ground. Niles remained on the helicopter with the General and McGovern.
  • The ground team heard an unknown group approaching from the woods. The main cell members and Brambo went to confront the people approaching and lead them away from the crash site. They were attacked by a group of heavily equipped assailants who emerged from the woods.
  • As the General was covering the ground team from the air, he heard the approach of a stealth helicopter. As it got closer they exchanged fire and the cargo chopper was severely damaged. Niles and McGovern jumped out with parachutes. On his way down the General steered the team’s helicopter into the blades of the attacking helicopter causing it to go into a tailspin.
  • Niles landed hard as McGovern got stuck in a tree. The General walked away moslty unharmed.
  • Alexi used his mental powers to conjour an image of an attacking force in the minds of the assailants. The team then took cover while Brambo covered them.
  • As the attacking helicopter was on it’s way down it was blasted from the sky by a bolt of blue energy and a small fast moving craft flew past.
  • The assailants broke and ran for cover.
  • The cell was pinned down by a fast moving, drone sized craft which was firing quil like neddles down at them.
  • The General called in for help from Blue Fly and 2 stealth fighters were dispatched to cover their exit.
  • The team blew the UFO open and found a small compartment contain a naked Asian man. The team briefly investigated the craft and found it to be made from a coral like substance they had encountered before covered in metal. Their were no descernable pieces of technology. They grabbed samples and ran.
  • When they reached the Ranger’s station they requisitioned a truck and drove back to their helicopter.
  • Upon arriving at their base they found the security system off. The Grey corpse they had capture as well as Garrett Campbell were missing. At that time Dr Fai Fi Fo Fung, PhD and Paradox returned.
  • Paradox and Fung reported that Brambo had told them to go and do some research on Campbell as ordered by the General. Security footage then showed Brambo shutting down the security system before leaving with the General.
  • Brambo did not recall this and this was confirmed by a mind probe from Booth.
  • The three were locked up and the cell rested.

  • Our story picks immediately following the events of the previous game.
  • The cell takes Garrett Campbell back to their temporary safe house and begin their interrogation.
  • They find out that he rarely deals with Athena himself. He leaves that to Ian Goodrich who acts as liaison.
  • Campbell had received body enhancement technology from Athena in exchange for cooperation on several initiatives.
  • Goodrich and Campbell’s relationship has broken down over the past several months as he believes that Ian has his own agenda.
  • The broadcast of the grey autopsy was partly Campbell fulfilling his obligations and partly a sense of curiosity and drive to break a new story.
  • The cell broke into Cambell’s apartment to see what else they could find.
  • Hacking into his computer they see more evidence of the infighting between Campbell and Goodrich.
  • While there Goodrich showed up to check on Campbell and is captured by the cell.
  • The Cell and Goodrich struck a deal, his life for the receiver to locate the transponder Goodrich had placed in the Grey body.
  • The Cell tracked the transponder to the Twin Hills Radar Station where they had formally faced off against the NDD.
  • When the Cell arrived at Twin hills they found the remains of a major conflict. There were bodies strew about, rended to pieces and large holes made in the structure.
  • Making their way inside the Cell discovered the base empty except for bodies. The conflict appeared to have happened a few weeks past, shortly after the conflict at the Cell Headquarters.
  • Dr. Jason Tennant was able to hack into the security system and retrieve footage of the incident.
  • Reviewing the footage revealed that the radar station was attacked by some sort of large humanoid.
  • The attacker battled the NDD and seemed to take little damage. Once the NDD were dealt with, it went after the grey. The footage showed the grey disappear and then end up halfway through a wall. At this point the attacker left.
  • The Cell managed to free the body taking part of a wall with them. They also found a small box contains some odd grenades. 5 of 6 were remaining.
  • The Cell then proceeded back to their temporary hideout and began construction of a new Underground HQ as they no longer felt their estate was secure.

  • Our story picks immediately following the events of the previous game.
  • General Ajax pulls up in his jeep with Adam Booth in tow.
  • The Cell proceeds to enter the Axelrod Building through the hole they created.
  • They subdue the security guard at the main desk and execute another in the break room.
  • Taking the guard’s access card and getting his security codes they devise a plan to have Tennant, Reynolds and Booth ride up in the elevator and Ajax and Merrek go up the stairs. They timed this to arrive on Level 30 at the same time.
  • Merreck and Ajax were able to lure a guard into the stairway lobby and use a grenade to eliminate him. They then used a grenade to breach the door.
  • A dramatic firefight ensued with the guards on this level. Some highlights include a guard being incinerated by Booth’s Pyrokinesis, the use of several grenades to take out the more stubborn guards, the use of C4 to blow holes in walls and the surrender of 4 guards and their detention in the bathrooms.
  • The level was searched, but nothing was found. Tennant used the computers in the security monitoring room to erase the cell’s presence.
  • The cell then proceeded to Level 32 where they subdued the remaining guards after a brief fight.
  • The cell found out from the guards that Garrett Campbell was in the building.
  • Reynolds then used C4 to open the doors to the secret elevator.
  • The shaft appeared dark, the assumption being the elevator was lower down. A grenade was dropped down for good measure.
  • Everyone in the cell except for Reynolds proceeded to the basement via the stairs. Reynolds decided he would climb down the elevator cable. A few stories form the bottom the cable let go (damaged by the C4) and he dropped to the top of the elevator breaking his ankle.
  • The cell searched the basement and finally found a large bundle of cables leading back towards the elevator to a space that should not exist according to their floor plans.
  • They again used C4 to blow open the back of the elevator and discovered Campbell’s secret monitoring room.
  • Campbell was captured and transported back to their temporary base.

  • Agent Reynolds hacked into Campbell’s email account and set it to forward to an account he has access to.
  • Reading through emails showed that Campbell and Ian Goodrich were at odds on various subjects and their working relationship was becoming more and more strained.
  • The cell then set up shop in an adjacent building to observe Cambell for a week. This observation reinforced the strain between Campbell and Goodrich.
  • The cell then decided to tail Goodrich for a week.
  • During their observations they did not garner anything useful so they decided to hypnotize Goodrich while he was out on a smoke break.
  • Dr. Tennant used the LB-427 device to put Goodrich into a trance and then Agent Merrek began to hypnotize him.
