The last 3 train cars carrying our group of adventurers arrives at a train station very similar to the one they had left hours prior. The only big difference was that this one was a little more collapsed with a large hole in the ceiling 80 ft above the train.   The group safely climbed out of the station.  They are faced with an area with abundant nature and a few ruins.  They made camp for the night in a set of ruins, an uneventful night occurs, causing the group to be a little on edge.

They set off following the directions they had been given by Duvall. Half way through the day they hear screaming in the distance.  Much discussion is had on whether to check out the screams or proceed down the path even though the majority votes to keep on the path they end up going to the screams.  They come across a lake where they see 80ft tall distorted statues. The screaming comes from the statues it seems.  The group proceeds down the hill, noting a shack a ways off that they hope will have a boat that they can use to get out to the statues to investigate.

On their way down Delpax 6040 (not a robot) trips while hovering and roles out onto the water, which he discovers is more like a caustic goo. He then runs to the nearest statue to get out of the lake. At this time the group notices that there are no animals or insects around the lake. Van Bossman, Cosnor and Dandy Dan proceed to the shack looking for a boat to rescue Delpax.   Remi (and Alphonse) and Dag the cowardly stay at the beach (actually nobody knows where Dag really is). The shack appears to have been abandoned many years ago but a sturdy row boat is found.   Von rows, Cosnor is in the bow on look out and Dandy Dan acts as coxswain.  They safely make it to the staute.  Von picks at the statue to get some of the plaststeel substance, Dandy Dan cuts at a hose to see if they statue is chained in place.  Nothing unusual happens, as they row back Dandy Dan is ill and Delpax does not look well.  Upon arriving back at the beach Dag examines Delpax who seems alright and Dandy Dan who seems to be suffering from a stroke as his left arm has gone weak and his lips have turned blue.

They climb back up the hill Von falls  knocking Delpax down again.  This time it is Von's turn to fall into and across the water.   Since it was Von and Delpaxs idea to come to this place the rest of the group waits up to for Delpax to row out and rescue Von.  Strangely Von has sprouted an arm out of his back, a limp baby like arm that hangs there. When the two adventurers make it to the top of the hill  Delpax is feeling weak.  They make camp near a set of ruins closer to the trail they were following.  Dandy has discovered that his palms are now producing a sticky substance that he can control the flow of turning his hands into sticky pads.  Delpax has started to take on a green colour and has grown small feathers, he feels weaker but also seems to float a little higher when he hovers.

The next day they head down the path and come across a Tattooed wiry man carrying a large pack.  They find out he is a travelling tattoo artist who can make tattoos that act like ciphers.  After much haggling Delpax, Von, Dag and Remi get tattoos done.  Dag also discovers while he and Cosnor are trying to heal Delpax that Delpax has the bones of a bird now.  They camp with Lurax for the night, spending yet another uneventful night.  (Funny how the group gets more jumping with the more calm and restful nights).

The next day they come into a ravine where they see the field of towers.  As they enter the Ravine they notice 3 figures crouched down behind some ruins. Dag disappears into the brush as does Remi and Alphonse.  One of the 3 figures motions for the group to get down, the group notices that there is a giant worm infront of the strangers. Dag successfully gets closer, Dandy Dan with a flourish does not act stealthy and attracts the attention of the beast. He manages to leap out of the path of a substance that the worm spits out, luckily as the substance solidifies on contact.  Von rises and sends out a beam from his arm lance...............

The virus
When last we left our heroes had been enjoying a relaxing train ride when suddenly there was a loud noise on the roof of the train.......

Von Bossman lifted the roof hatch to look and quickly receives a blow to the head by a gelatinous tentacle.  Delpax 6040 (not a robot(or is he?)) wiped out his pen and weighed the tentacle ascertaining that it was a heavy creature about 300 lbs. Dan Manli seeing a new potential opponent (that he might be able to defeat) wrestles the creature into the train car.  It vomits out slime onto all the occupants in the train car.   Meanwhile the first train car has another creature being fought on the roof by Cosnor, Chuck the younger and Sir Woodchuck.  Upon defeating the creature in the second train car, another battle ensues on top of the train car involving Franz Glickman, Dan Manli, Von, Dandy Dan and Delpax. Dandy Dan takes a fall from the train barely holding on, realizing that Chuck the younger is nearby he flips himself back onto the train in a dramatic cartwheel and pose.

During this Dag has had the good sense to run to the third car for safety and Finniti has tried to think the situation through to a safe resolution.

Dag had popped his head through the latch on the 4th train car thinking to do a sneak attack from behind the slime creatures.  He noticed that there was a fifth creature on the last train car and so used his cypher to set up a cold wall.

As the fighting has been going on the train has started to speed up again.  Making it difficult to stay on the top of the train as you can imagine. As the 4th creature to be attacked is defeated Chuck the younger falls and is scrambling to get to the hatch.  Franz attempts to help him in while being tied to Dan Manli for safety. A sign hits Chuck causing him to pull Franz out of the train car. Sir Woodchuck attempts to help out but trips and tackles Dan Manli, Franz is forced to let go of Chuck and drop into car or fall off the train.   Dan Manli thinking this is Woodchuck wanting to wrestle grapples with him and sadly is pinned (again).

While this has been happening Delpax has noticed that the last creature is ripping at the control panel on top of the 5th train car.  He alerts the group (or those not busy wrestling ad rescuing each other).  Von Bossman and Cosnor both run to the last car injuring themselves as they pass through the wall of cold that has suddenly appeared. Again Vonbossman opens the hatch and battles a tentacle. This time the tentacle grabs Cosnor and pulls him out onto the roof of the train car, fighting ensues.  Luckily prior to opening the hatch Von Bossman tied his rope to himself and Cosnor. Delpax and Dag have shot at the creature while Cosnor and Von have fought with it they defeat it.

In the meantime Chuck is barely hanging on Franz and Dag have a rope trailing out the hatch of the 4th car as a Chance for him to grab. Dan Manli has thrown his rope out the 3rd car hatch for him to grab or to be pummelled with as it flies around.  Dag in an unusual feat of daring attempts to climb out onto the train car to save Chuck.  Dandy Dan sees this and quickly climbs past him attempts many heroic feats to grab Chuck and pull him to safety.   The first simple attempts fail, the tension is mounting will Chuck go flying to his death?  He is very weak from his fighting and falling on the roof of the train.   Finally seeing that simple straight forward attempts continue to fail Dandy Dan does a crouching pirouette somersault grabbing Chuck and bringing him into the train car.  Safe at last or are they?

The 5th car with Cosnor and Von in it is falling off the track. Dan Manli prepares to hold the train together with his burly strength. Franz has sent his rope through to the 5th car for Von to grab hold of. Cosnor barley any strength left pulls himself into the 4th car followed by Von Bossman who is reduced to crawling he is so week. Dan Manli injures himself attempting to keep the train to together.  Finniti has managed to get a bowl of slime off the first car, almost falls off train but manages to pull himself in to study the slime.
Cosnor realizes that the only way to stop the train from falling off the track is to decouple the 3rd car from the roof.  With the last of his energy and strength he climbs up onto the train car opens the hatch and allows the 4th and 5th cars to seperate from the train just as the rest of the group gets into the 3rd car.

When last we saw our heroes......
Dandy Dan had just sliced himself by walking into some thin metal wires that were laid by the metallic spiders that were attacking him and Arnel.   Most of the party came to help either by falling from the ropes they were trying to climb down to the train cars or actually climbing down (not many went for this option).
 

Franz having lowered himself onto the middle train car opened the roof hatch, entered and proceeded to try and take apart the car looking for Numenera. Once the spiders were defeated most of the group proceeded up to the train cars.  Dandy Dan using his magnetic boots climbed up to a platform above where they had entered. Seeing a lever he pulled it causing the clamp holding the middle car to release, luckily he had on magnetic boots as when a flock (group?) of bats flew out they knocked him off the platform. Something that Fennetti had discovered would happen with a lever that Dag (not Dang) had discovered when he was cowering away from the fight with the spiders.
 

Dan "the Man" Manli having unsuccessfully trying to carry Arnel up to the train car dropped him and proceeded to pick up a pile of debris over a hatch that Dag had discovered. Meanwhile Delpax 6040 (not a robot) had cleaned the second train car and Cosnor had sharpened his Harpoon to the point of it being able to shave anyone wanting to be shaved with a harpoon.   Sir Woodchuck kicked at the clamp on the last car, nobody is really sure why but maybe it had an effect.
 

Dag  opened the hatch and found a third lever in a hole in the ground.  Franz climbed down the ladder and immediately tried to take Numenera from a panel he found. As he electrocuted himself Chuck the younger joined him in the hole.  Just as Franz pulled the lever that released the third clamp (or was it woodchucks kick?) Delpax hovered down the ladder into the hole and caused it and himself to fall onto some spider webs., slicing him and the ladder. Franz now had a nice metallic stick to keep and the group in the hole needed to use a rope to get out.
 

Luckily Dan Manli had a roped tied around him and it was dangling into the hole. Unluckily he had convinced Von to wrestle with him after unsuccessfully trying to get Dag to wrestle. Luckily the group in the hole did not have to take the rope that was swinging and swaying from the wrestling as Cosnor had lowered another one.  Dag seeing his opportunity (and never actually taking on anyone face on) tackled Dan Manli. Strangely while this was happening, the lights in the middle car were flickering like a strobe light and there was music from a 70's porn playing.  Sir Woodchuck jump edge down to seperate  all 3 and get them to focus on the task that actually needed to be done.
 

When everyone was finally on board the train Fennetti remotely moved the lever causing the train to take off at high speed.
 

Chuck the younger was sad to still not have used his grenade and some how Remi managed to get Alphonse down with out any incident, a feat considering this was a plains creature that needed to be lowered by ropes.

After an hour of riding the group is startled by a loud noise from the top of the train........

As the statue approaches our group of heroes hears static and can almost hear a voice.  Franz Glick does make out the voice of Lily. She is the guardian of the Nagaina, she says that Devaula could help those that are infected, and leads the group down a hallway.  Except for Dandy Dan, who seeing his friends fighting off the things from the eggs chose to not get his fine clothes dirty and so started to search around house.   Looking for a way to find his friends some other way and anything else that may be of value as compensation for their time and troubles.

The tunnel leads to an ancient complex.  There is a glow from the lichens and sporadic glow lamps.  A minor skirmish down one of the tunnels occurs when they are attacked by a herd of lizards.  They come to an area where the bridges they are crossing look as if they can be turned to shift to different buildings.   Our heroes spot an electrical panel that they strip for any ciphers they may be able to get. Upon successfully finding 5 ciphers Van proceeds to detonate one that then destroys the rest.

After travelling for 4 hours Lily says they are pretty close, then the bridge they are crossing gives way. All but Franz fall, Lily shatters as they land 30 feet below on another bridge that also gives way. Cosner is pinned against the bridge and a 12 sided peice of metal is seen amongst the debris that was Lily. The Static that was being heard has stopped, when Chuck picks up the metal object he clearly hears Lily.  After helping Cosner become unpinned and much running up and down different stair wells by Franz in an attempt to get back with the group they move on.   Lily leads them to a large cylinder that sounds like the throbbing of a generator and has moist hot air. They enter the laboratory to find a 70foot tall worm that has tools in and as its tendrils.

"Why are you here?" Is what we hear as we leave our friends for another week.

When last we left our band of merry adventurers there was a knock at the door........

Cosner, Dan Manlie, Remi, J0e and Von Bossman went into the sitting room to answer the door. Leaving Chuck the younger and Dandy Dan with Durrell to continue on with the interrogation, if they ever start to ask questions.

Cosner answered the door as if he were the butler.  On the other side of the door was a floating lady with a headdress and 2 body guards.  She asked for the Baron and claimed to be his betrothed by the name of Isaltha.  Quick thinking Cosner replied "He's Dead", hope this would deter her.  Unfortunately this simply encouraged her to think that she now owned the house.  Cosner managed to convince her that she should go up to the bedroom to rest and led her that way.

Isaltha demanded to the other "servants" that they bring her luggage.   Dan Manlie wanting to show off his strength attempted to carry all the luggage by himself.  The awkwardness of the many pieces resulted in him dropping them as he tripped coming back into the house.  The lady Isaltha was so infuriated that she demanded that he be whipped.   Van Bossman led Dan Manlie out side to an area where he would punish him. When they got to the pipe he would be Whipped at Dan Manlie had a smoke while Van Bossman went to the window of the dining room to get some blood to smear on Dan from the roughly handled Durrell.

Remi had taken up a position in front of the dining room door, while J0e proceeded to clean up the luggage and help bring it upstairs.  Upstairs Cosner led Althia and her bodyguard to a room that he hoped was the master bedroom, unfortunately it was locked.  The Burly bodyguard tried the door and managed to accidentally break the lock, opening the door to a strange looking bedroom.  Cosner left them and the body guard took position in front of the door. J0e came up with the luggage and stood in the room observing Isaltha as he waited for instructions. She seemed to be wandering the room saying circle-green-water.  He then left to get supper ready for her.

Having finally started to ask questions Dandy Dan found out that Durrell was not the Baron but rather the chief steward, that the Baron was gone about raising money for the amber post crusades.   He also found out that Sir Woodchuck had been thrown into a hole in the library floor.  Chuck the younger then went to the library and had Remi, Von Bossman and a bloody Dan Manlie join him. Van Bossman used his cypher to see what had happened in the room earlier.  They saw Sir woodchuck be tossed into a hole in the floor and the Baron seem to go to the back wall and suddenly the hole disappeared.  The 4 of them proceeded to search for the switch.   Dan Manlie decided he would do this. By throwing the books off the shelves, he then noticed he was being watched from above by Isaltha and her 2 body guards.  He then piled the books up and tried to look like he was wiping the shelves to clean them.   Unfortunately, none of the 4 could find how the floor was activated after many attempts.  As Remi, Chuck and Van were standing in the middle of the library scratching their heads in frustration the floor underneath them disappeared.  As they fell 30 ft down, they noticed that Isaltha had done something on the wall of the second floor.

The screams of the falling were heard by J0e and Dandy Dan, who informed the harpoon enthralled Cosner. Dandy Dan took the keys from Durrell, locked the door to the dining room and followed J0e to the library while Cosner ran up the stairs.  Dan Manlie looked into the pit spotted Shaiesa, and Sir Woodchuck, as well as 3 zombie like guardians.  He made sure to yell this fact and for some strange reason continued to yell Woodchuck over and over.  Cosner let out a sonic scream at Isaltha and her bodyguards, deafening one of them.  mean while in the pit our 3 fallen heroes fought with the guardians and tried not to be infected guy the egg like things that kept shooting out some kind of bug.  Van Bossman was bitten but continued to fight on.  Manlie jumped into the hole swinging his axe at one of the guardians who also had an axe. Cosner used his harpoon as bar to push Isaltha and her guards into the hole and fell with them.  This seems to have finally help waken Sir Woodchuck who quickly jumped into the fight. Dandy Dan seeing no reason to get dirty and not having a ranged weapon searched the library finding 20 shins. The rest of the group made short work of the guardians, the body guards were consumed by the egg/insect creatures and Isaltha ran out the exit and was last heard Screaming as she ran out the door.

Our friend Shaiesa was unconscious on the floor as a tall stone form of a woman came into the room bleeding some kind of blue substance..........

Until next week.

Our group of adventurers found out that there friend Shaiesa, a tall thin woman with Flaming red hair and a lazy jade green eye, had been "helped" by a tall burly with short hair.  He was known to frequent the "Rusty pipe" and always seemed to be running errands.

Upon arriving at the Rusty Pipe we spread out to see if we could find the person matching the description we were given. Sir Woodchuck managed to fall through part of the floor but did not do himself or others much damage.  He did happen to talk to 2 guys one of who looked like our suspect.  They offered to show him where they took Shaiesa, he went with them, without alerting the rest of the group.  We were too busy looking to notice him leave, with exception of Remi and Alphonse her animal companion.

Remi is taken to a secluded spot where he is beaten up and drugged. Remi while being extremely stealthy was unable to help in the fight, bow strings always fail at just the right (or wrong) moment.  Remi decided to follow the culprits and sent Alphonse to get the rest of the group. In some weird way Alphonse ("what is that Alphonse woodchuck fell down the well again?") manages to convince the group to follow him back to where Sir Woodchuck was captured. Of course, Remi has moved on following the 2 thugs into a nicer part of town where they entered a 2 story house with a stable.  Somehow Alphonse was too confused to pick up Remis' trail but Cosner picked up the trail and led the group to the abode.

Upon Arriving Alphonse rushes up to Remi almost blowing her cover, but luckily for us, it was not blown.  A stable boy happens upon the group but Remi convinces him he needed to go back into the stable and did not see anything, which prevented unneeded blood shed.  We then snuck into house as the 2 thugs left.  We search the room, except for Cosner who upon hearing some man berating a servant on the other side of the door kicks the door open.  Having quickly shoved a couch in front of the door. We follow Cosner into the dining room.   Where we attack a pompous old bald man named Durrell.

We hear a loud  knock at the door..........and will find out next time what happens to our band of merry misfits.
