Roadwar Journal: Posse Power Road Rage

The roadwarriors were gettling paid to protect tiny town from sand devil gang cult. 50 km from fortified remains of Bathurst the team arrived at towns and met no opposition.

Four hectares of land with razorwire and mine surrounding it. Inside was a biofuel slurry plant. A barn of specially bred wonder organic sheep. A 4 story greenhouse and solar plant. A walled complex with town workers, sheriff office and bar. Town run from bar.

Team included:
3/4 cyborg sex crazed, schizoid maniac ex army pilot and drone operator with 15 SAN and a truck
1/4 cyborg vet with 4x4 with a MG and he carries a GL, has imaginary friends, psychotic over 50 SAN
Freelance therapist nice guy following discharged vets to help them
Corporate ninja biker girl psycher with high tech sword
Cyber nun Vatican agent in alpha romeo with MG
Bitter ex sheriff, gang killed family and destroyed his town, now he hunts gangs solo
A wasteland mutant giant, fundamentalist with car built for ramming only

Found a gang agent in town and spent some time with locals. Found local feral kids were scouts of gang and gave them some food and clean water. Befriended the younger ones. Became evident that mr shiny the near full borg vet was sex crazed. Spent ages with spys porn collection and wore out town prostitutes with his fancy huge implant.

Others in team found mine entries and capture spy messenger and car. Filled car with bomb and drone parts to turn into suicide bomb. Scouted entries and interrogated prisoner to get rough interior map with fuel plant and garage. Also captured car had transponder to deactivate mine field.

Party decided to break blockade first taking on ten bikes and a renegade interceptor. Bikes were rammed
and machine-gunned easily. Nun had her windscreen damaged and was left with slugs in her suit. Looted remains and got enough transponders for party.

Plan was set and after hours of useless squabbling party chose Mutant to drive n disguised as ganger with ninja and bike on back of his renegade rammer. He passed as gang member and got in. While he dropped some backpacks of explosives around ninja girl set charge in bio fuel plant and piggery. As rest of party began sealing entries and moving to position the remote bomb car sealed an entry after the ninja girl escaped on her bike. It was silent which proved handy. The mutant ram raider in the mountain after bombs and fire started broke up groups trying to escape only exit as caves filled with smoke. Outside team fired burst after burst at escapees, killing dozens of pedestrians and bikers. Bigger cars got damaged and crashed, or burst into flames. one came at team and had wheels shot off. Team airship drone fired several rockets destroying all in the kill zone twice. One cyborg with grenade launcher went crazy and charged even punching a radiator and got run over for trouble. Other crazy cyborg dragging off female prisoners while his sobbing therapist followed  begging him to behave.

Nun and muto in gas masks explored inside and found sand bat altar. Came out and she made satellite phone report to Vatican demonologists. Rest of team led townsfolk in looting the dead and taking prisoners. Lots of hangings later the mutant swore to follow the nun. Party celebrated, got loot and ammo and fuel then drove off into wasteland looking for trouble. Town sure without bandits they will be able to pay to be on airship trade route.

Fun and violent fun. Suitably crazy characters. Now a fortnightly game for a bit. Will escalate in fire power and antics.

  1. Reading this post made me recall a CoC game I ran back when I was in highschool, it was a modern CoC game[well, modern then) and the players ended up sucked into a parralel univerese full of road warriors and mythos horrors for a few sessions. One PC got killed and ended up playing his other universe doppleganger. They managed to smuggle a nuke back from the other side to seal the portal between worlds but ended up getting pinched by the authorities. I'm rambling like an old man, good times...

    2. I think I have to blame the nuke on an article in White Dwarf which had stats for nuclear bombs in CoC and the discriminating tastes of a highschool-aged me.
