- Everyone died or got zombified
- One person crit-failed their first zombification check and immediately turned about fifteen minutes into play
- Molotovs ended the lives of multiple PCs. The player in question only plays one-shots as she lacks the attention span to play in long running games, which is why her forays into roleplaying become slaughterfests.
- My radiation system would be more interesting in a long-term campaign than a one-shot where record keeping became tedious.
- Besides the Armchair Republican and the Columbine copy-cat loner PCs, everyone was completely unprepared for the zombie apocalypse. Everyone played their roles well.
- The clown got a very limited form of Snatcher and abused it to good effect.
The AgentsTobias Stöhner: Gray hat hacker and electronics whiz, Tobias makes computer security experts at the Pentagon break out into a cold sweat when he infiltrates their systems.
Virgil Cooke: A former CIA agent, Virgil is a master of acting a part and working the social aspects of covert ops. You probably should avoid windows if he wants you dead.
Jack Herman: Former SAS, Jack is the group's heavy muscle and military man. If the group needs his talents, it's inevitably because something went FUBAR and they need saving.
Nima Caspi: A former IDF combat medic, Nima is perfectly at home driving like a complete maniac and patching up complete maniacs who have taken a bullet or two.
Johnny Trang: Johnny Trang was too cool for LAPD officer school, so they put him into undercover work. Johnny Trang is perfectly at home infiltrating illegal racing rings or snooping on bad guys.
This session we had Matt (Virgil), Max (Johnny), Thomas (Tobias) and Ryan (Jack).
The agents spent two months in Switzerland recovering and relaxing. Johnny's doctors assure him that the colorblindness will fade- eventually. Virgil picks up some news that some guy in France wanted by Interpol was found hanging from a flagpole outside his hotel. Virgil's player doesn't piece it together- but Agency 17 has followed up on the safe deposit box in London and Natalia is following that lead.
Meanwhile, Logan updates the Agents on Project Olympus (Long story short: Natalia is an outlier and the program was highly inefficient and unreliable), as well as their next mission.
Rand and Charles Petroleum, a US Company, has attempted to start an oil drilling operation in the Amazon rainforest within Brazil. Working with a Private Military Contractor (Blue Leaf Company) to provide security and 'willing' labor, RCP's activities have pissed Agency 17 off.
Largely because RCP has been identified as a potential target for blackmail and extortion, especially if their most recent business proposition (The oil drilling in Brazil) fails. Agency 17 plans to apply leverage for their starting capital.
The Agents are only told about the forced working conditions. They're provided a guide, Gregori, to help them survive in the jungle conditions.
Tobias and Johnny are flown in early, and approach the town of Varzedos. Providing early reconnaissance, they determine that a man known as Sherman is in charge of the Blue Leaf Company, a woman named Connie is in charge of the drilling operation for RCP, and the local padre, Father Kline, is overheard talking with Sherman about the availability of laborers.
Tobias begins tracking down two men involved with trying to stop RCP's business in the area, meeting with Ernesto. Ernesto is an old grizzled man who gruffly tries to disillusion Tobias about the situation, but is generally helpful. Turns out Murchad, a particularly vocal critic of the drilling operation, threatened to involve outside interests in the situation.
'Outside interests' being eco-terrorists, criminal organizations, government oversight committees, and the like. The kind of organizations that RCP doesn't want to deal with, and the king the Blue Leaf Company really wishes would shut up.
Meanwhile, Virgil, Nima, Jack and Gregori skydive into the Amazon late at night. Barely surviving the trip through the canopy, they land and begin making camp.
Next morning, Virgil and Jack prepare their ghillie suits and recon the road being cut into the jungle to the site where drilling will commence. They find first BLC's barracks, followed by a large clearing where workers who have been forced into joining the project are forced to sleep. Connie and a few BLC members execute two workers who tried to escape, in full view of the hidden agents.
Meanwhile, Tobias still digs into finding locals who are against RCP, and Johnny tries to dig into any clues present at the local town hall...
