City of Heroes: The Coming Storm

Mission 1
The Coming Storm

It all began on a strangely quiet late-spring day.

Paragon City was used to its share of turmoil, but for once, everything seemed peaceful. Several heroes were gathered in the most unlikely of spots — a Walmart in Kings Row — without even knowing each other or their future destiny…

Suddenly, while interacting, the lights went out. One member of the group, Fatesse Kirushido, received word that gremlins were attacking the building and cautioned the others to keep people inside and calm — at which point, the need for heroes outweighing the need for secrecy, it was revealed that his three companions (Game Gear, Typhoon, and Tramp King) were all heroes as well, albeit unlicensed ones.

Working together, the group was able to dispatch the gremlin they discovered with relative ease while another group handled the remainder. Needing information about the situation, they were summoned to Atlas Park by Azuria so she could debrief (and register) the group.

While debriefing, a second situation arose: a massive outbreak in the last peaceful corner of Eastgate, the part of the city now known colloquially as the Hollows due to the massive destruction wreaked by the former hero Faultline’s earthquake machine.

After subduing the attacking citizens, they discovered that the infected all had large amounts of a super-heavy Rikti alloy in their systems and that this was linked to their infection. They were able to trace the alloy back to a nearby Crey Corporation laboratory, which recently reported an accidental spill. Still, what were Crey doing with the alloy in the first place?

Before they could consider much further, a Crey cleanup crew arrived on the scene and the heroes beat a hasty retreat, their hard-won information in tow. Further research showed that an unnamed company provided the alloy to Crey’s laboratory, with a second shipment leaving that same company’s facilities for a Crey warehouse in Kings Row…

Mission 2
Two Paths Diverged

The next morning, our heroes were summoned to a meeting with Fatesse Kirushido at the Brotherhood of Fatesse’s base in Kings Row. There, they discovered that the group was working on the information about the two incidents from the previous day and had set up two separate battle plans to carry out: one group would go after the source of the gremlins, a summoner holed up in Peregrine Island, while a second group would investigate the Crey warehouse in Kings Row.

Tramp King and his companions opted for the Crey warehouse, while Kirushido agreed (with backup from the Brotherhood) to go after The Summoner. A young archer by the name of Alliesa Darkfire agreed to join our heroes (despite some initial concerns by Tramp King about her trustworthiness), and they set off to investigate the warehouse.

Inside, they found that the warehouse was guarded by an entire chapter of the Skulls, and after a hard-fought battle, they fought through to the back of the warehouse… just in time to hear a loud explosion and see an Arachnos Flyer leaving the premises and several crates of what could only be the Rikti alloy missing.

Two new groups added to the fracas, they returned to the Brotherhood’s base to make sense of this new information…
