Wasteland 2

The adventure of the Darkest Heart
The lost story

The beginnings of this tale doesn’t begin with the mutant known as Dark Heart but with why he is called dark heart. Long ago before he met the group, the tribe know as The Stone was where he grew up as you would guess they were savage killers with a bad habit of getting in trouble with the locals so they sent dark heart into the cities and blamed it on him saying he was the one who rapped and killed the women and sold them as slaves, And it was with that act his tribe beheaded his wife and raped his mother before killing her (and of course he was restrained by the elders) and forced to watch it all years after the event he was forced out of the city jail he and he knew there would be death to pay for the crimes in his name and that the stones would pay with every drop of there blood so as he was being dropped off at the gates he caught a guard off focus and broke his neck and used his gun as his own. But he knew were the tribe often goes for celebrations so he waited there for what seemed like days if not weeks but it was nothing he couldn’t bare because of what they did to him his anger was enough to keep him going. Finally off in the sands he heard the great war drum of his X-tribe and he didn’t even have a plan he just charged straight at them with only a rifle he had taken yet he didn’t know how it worked but in his soul he knew that lord Ga-bu was watching and that if he would die he would die with the blood of his tribe dripping form his own fingers, But what he didn’t know was that he was already impelled by three spears but the pain only made him want to kill them that much more. The sight of a mutant fighting while dying was something that the Elders would call the Rage of Ga-bu and as he stood before the elder seats as the head elder was getting ready for battle, The young Mutant threw down his weapon and stated that only a real mutant fights to the death with with his hands! But the elder knew that this would not go unseen by the other tribes so the War-Chieftain dropped his hammer and looked at this bleeding wounded thing of a mutant and said i would never had guessed that a pest could make it this far, He would fight this hand to hand combat but being an aged battle worn leader he had the upper hand taking the blows of this angry fighter was his best way to make sure to tire him out and then struck a heavy blow to his leg tipping over this young child, And as he got in close to take his life an unseen kick knocked the elder over and as the young fighter got to his feet he knew the only way to win was to choke the life out of this elder, and with his big arms he gripped the elders neck as tight as he could the elder kicked a little bit gasping before lying limp on the floor and the young mutant grabbed the dagger from the elders boot and carved out the Elders heart and held it before the broken tribe and with a deathly smile he ate it, So the the 5 great tribes that were left in shock named him Dark Heart because his heart was as black as night and as cold as the blood that stained it.

Hermin, Watchers, and more

So someone known as the Lawmaker (not to be confused with the law bringer) stopped the fight and used Dyrax as a hammer to break the glass ceiling while Otta and him told us about what the fate and watchers created. This is getting crazier by the minute. they told us a former watcher whose name was, hermin. Can you believe that? founded the NGMO. and there were three original races, Anazii, Celitens, and the Titans. and apparently project titan is actually the archons, there more i’ve yet to understand about this but in time it will come to me. Also Alice may actually be Elania, but we are not sure about that until we get to section 32. I’ve put the hunt for my gear on hold since this big incident happened, maybe after this, the Ngmo can help me get back to that bubble in the Convistra (sp?) and get my stuff back. this white armor is ok but i do like the original stuff i had. Oh and before i forget otta was a fate now human, and zergziez (sp?) lost his memory and was told to take his army and go fight the ngmo. I wonder if perguis is still willing to be part of the ngmo, for now i still am, but they do anything to me, then i will fight them.

Metis' thoughts.
Games, games, I won't lie.....

So we’re just going to wait on darius or dyrax, whatever his name is, while trying to understand how to use powers beyond our control. Yeah, it’s another thing that we’re going to have to learn just to make sure that we all survive this shit. I miss the days when we were all back in that shithole of a desert and just could deal with anything we ran into as a team, now we’re just getting along because we’re told we have to and not because we want to. I do like the weight behind these swords, really good for training with

Conbastra (sp?)

when pergius and i talked to the law bringer he talked about many things, partly about N.G.M.O and project Titan, and partly about conbastra and how we were in the time stream while we were talking to him. Pergius and I are now part of N.G.M.O. we don’t know who else is part of the group, but they will contact us once we get project titan back to section 32. After we talked with the Law Bringer the guards takes us to a small hut behind the temple where we rested while they gather some supplies for us since we couldn’t go into town and get it ourselves. When they returned they told us that Sefren was in jail because she was a Nugulch. people wanted her dead. The guards said they could get her out and have her meet up with us. Then we can….wait…we are IN Conbastra….we have to get to the bubble…the city were we were forced to abandon our stuff. I can our stuff back.

Underground city

After Alex dropped us into a dark hole, we landed on a very thick pile of bones. The fall wasn’t enough to kill us but enough to leave a few bruises. we found weapons, clothes, 15 sets of white armor, they were in excellent condition, and gunpowder that we used to make flash bombs against the same thing we went up against on the train. It also had several friends following us. Seferin, Pergus and I found a vast network of tunnels while running away from the mob. one of the paths had writing on it leading us towards what looked like the gates to an underground city. we were just told by the guard that we were to meet with the LawBringer their leader.

Skeletons in a closet,...xle sighx

Last time i last checked, i was stuck in the “DiscoFunkaTron” trying to figure what to do with the terminals, then i saw what looks like an extra room, so i went to see what was in, so that way i can try to find some sort of hint to how to crack the security codes. Lucky for the lock on the door was just an average lock, so i busted it with my shield.

The room was dark, and quiet,… too quiet. I looked on over to the other side of the room to find,…skeletons that were wearing lab coats,…great. All of a sudden i heard scuffling somewhere, looks like i am not alone, I need to hurry and find these damn codes.

Oh i forgot to mention, that Lillith betrayed us, and that there is a battle on the other side of the pipe that had a hole in it. Oh an HATS isnt far from us. I need hurry.

Family history

After having a nice talk to Lady Ohta, Jin left to go somewhere deeper into the ship to create something that he said we needed. I have no idea what he was going to do but it sounded big. Lady Ohta mention a forge that Sefern, pergus and I could make weapons or armor from while we waited for Medis (sp?) to get a new body. As we explored the ship while on our way to the forge was noticed something stuck on the wall. i opened it with my sword revealing a A.I name Alex. when we told him all of our names he said our names were not in his databank until we can to Sefren. Apparently Alex knew about her family history, something she had no memory about, then alex dropped the floor under us talking about quarantine.

Let the cheating begin!
Seriously, Xerxes, stop.

So, after a bout with the strange aquatic thing that swallowed me, I managed to escape via sharp objects and some fortitude. The water was electrified, but once I realized I was able to deal with it, I promptly swam to land. Discovered a staircase up the mountain that had the Nockmaar statue, upon the summit was a caldera with an oasis and a ship in it. When the rest of the party finally caught up, a woman descended from the ship… She seemed familiar, though not to me directly, I don’t recall details though.

The woman explained how she held Xerxes’ daughter captive (I think) and that was why she wasn’t being bothered. She invited us in due to nightfall, also taking the time to show off the interior of the ship, which was malleable if one willed hard enough. It was easy going for me, of course. However, none of the mental constructions can exit the ship, it is only effective inside. She also mentioned the entire area The Games took place in was under Xerxes’ mental hold, including night and day. This also meant that the whole ‘if you survive the night you win’ was a scam, as dawn would never break until Xerxes willed it. Addendum: The woman has been here since before Xerxes and has been running an ‘experiment’ for many years.

Also, additionally, I found out Xerxes had changed his outward appearance, but as he had not initially suspected my capabilities, he took no effort to suppress his true self when I shook his hand upon our initial meeting. I had obtained the genetic information of his true identity, that of an old race called the Narlepse. They are tall, grey, humanoid, very lanky compared to most races. Ridges or spines protrude from my back, but they are not terribly useful. The jaw is… difficult to explain. Most fascinating, I perceive time differently. Instead of in fluid motion, I perceive it as many ‘snapshots’ that I can review at will. I have not attempted to review them when in my standard form, I will have to see how that works out for me later.

The woman mentioned an experiment to reverse the… process that Xerxes’ soldiers had undergone. Metis volunteered and managed to subdue most of his newfound primal instincts apparently. He was swiftly knocked out and the experimenting happened. While this was going on, I took the time to hand Perguis several Fluid State Inducers and caged myself, attempting to shift into the Borgum to see if I could maintain control. It Did Not Work. Addendum: The woman does not have DNA that I can utilize. Most interesting.

Speaking of Did Not Work, the process by which Metis was to be recovered was not going smoothly. The lady said she would attempt something but I can’t recall specifics. She also revealed herself to be The Gatekeeper… Metis’ fate has yet to be seen. Theoretically, if I stay in here long enough I can take some time to attempt to master things that I could never master in the Wasteland.

so many buttons, so little time

I was relief to find that my party was ok, Kidais has just regain all of his senses. Norrin was still playing catch up with Jevago and Lillith, however there was a 3rd member that i didnt recognize. Anywho i was still at the terminals trying to figure out how to move the gas away from both the places and finding a way out of this machine room (once again AKA the DiscoFunkaTron).
Norrin says to not mess with the machinery since he thinks i made things worse. Well he is kinda right, the good thing is that our room did not have the gas anymore,… the bad thing is, that the gas is now in the other room where Jevago and his team is.

Meanwhile trying to figure out the combinations to the codes, I did finally created a tunnel as the walls opened up from one side. Kidais said that he/she,…it? Will go and scout out the area. A few minutes later said that there was another entrance but a few stories down,… NOPE not going that way anytime soon.

Then Norrin had the idea of telling the mystery guy to try and “break Through” the very heavy plated vent.* Like that is going to work.* I heard a couple of bangs and then all of a sudden a loud screech, then i saw what looked like fingers growing out of the vent. As the fingers broke through the guy then proceeded to* BEND* the HEAVY PLATED VENT?!? To about the size of all 3 of us on this side of the room. A large face appeared on the other side of the hole, I was so shocked that i forgot what i was doing,…. oh yeah, gas. I looked at him and waved with a shocked face. It waved back while saying “Hi tiny man”. OK maybe i am not exactly a big brawny guy, but i was taller then most AVERAGE men.

Norrin proceeded to go on the other side of the vent. Got stuck half way. Kidais had to push him through. While i decided to still work on the terminals. After a conversation with Rio,…i mean Lillith. What ever happened to staying just male and female anyway? I soon heard that we are actually not allowed to go back outside to the surface, because we know about William Naroxi (AKA Tiny Man). That wont do, I am looking for someone and i am NOT going to stay here longer then what we have to in the first place. To make things more alarming, apparently Lilith said that HATS are actually the bad guys? And that Sephren is one of the “undercover” agents to help us or something like that. IS THERE ANYONE ONE I CAN ACTUALLY TRUST? Oh yeah Lilith can read minds apparently as well, but only if you let her,…i wont let that happened i do not want her to know what i am thinking. Did i mentioned we still had “company” coming?

Weepers part 2

Apparently Dyrax was infected with the weeper poison. We only had a little bit of time before he would turn into a weeper himself. Rio said there was no cure, but there was a way to slow it down. in the hallway from where the weeper originally came from there was a room that contained cryostats which could slow down the spread but that would mean he was stuck down here forever or until a real cure was made. Sefern (sp?) was still in her confused spell so i had to carry her into the hallway where a Gribbler attacked me. I escaped but i don’t know how many more are around. Dyrax spotted a switch on the wall next to a panel of buttons, he told me to take sefren back to the operating room and ask Rio what the switch was…it was to turn off the cleaning robots, but the robots had already been dismantled long before we ever got there. by then Sefren was awake and told us what HATS stood for. Never knew it stood for Human Authority. so now its just sefren and I.
