Small Change

The Great Ouchdoors

Story 1 - Session 19

It’s time for camping! The group has a work week off to do what they need to before they meet up at Vikky’s place and figure out their camping situation. With a little bit of last-minute shopping Friday evening, all six of them head out Saturday morning. Vikky leads the group in a rental truck, Ana on Kuku’s bike, Nixie on her own new bike, and Sophia in Vincent’s car.

They arrive at a rather pastoral camp site several hours drive from Thunder City and promptly set up site. When the work’s all done, Vikky makes the necessary preparations for her ‘show’: demonstrating the awesome powers of her obsidian butterfly spell. Sophia unwisely witnesses the spell from a front-row seat, narrowly avoiding getting harmed much more than a sharp butterfly shard in her back.

This show of power that can’t be witnessed in the city (due to restraining themselves for the sake of secrecy) prompts Vincent to try out two powers of his own as well: the ability to firstly ‘connect’ with everyone he touches, then enhance their stealthy abilities to his level, then turn everyone invisible – literally.

On a more serious note, in a discussion of what a Solar exalted could accomplish, Kuku brings up that he’s been feeling… strange, as if memories that aren’t his sometimes bubble up into his mind. He asks if anyone else has felt the same and is met with unanimous denial – until Vincent fesses up that he’s experienced the sensation as well, once or twice. Nixie tries to ease their worries that it’s something significant. Picking up on something Kuku mutters, Sophia asks point-blank if he’s a syndicate child. He reluctantly admits that he is, and that both his parents are supervising Generals for King syndicate’s secret black ops division. Ana makes a very poorly worded remark about trusting Kuku, which sends him, Vincent and Sophia a bit up in arms.

Before the conversation can get much more serious, Vikky abruptly shifts into her half-human, half-spider war from. It succinctly derails the rising tension, as intended, and the group heads back to their campsite to eat and receive fortunes from Nixie before presumably turning it in for the night.

Book says: {((n|n))} “Waud waud waus!”
