Our heroes don’t know what to think when Task Manager sends them after cattle rustlers using a flying saucer as their getaway vehicle, but they may be in for more than they bargained for. What is Basement Θ?
Scarab Man departed the group, called away to aid the Egyptian gods. The party answered the call of a farming couple about their cattle being abducted by aliens, and staked out their barn and fields through the night. In the process, they met a traveling merchant called Wicasa, a native American shaman and fledgling superhero, whose ability to speak with animals allowed him to interview the cows and learn more about the abductions.
Sure enough a strange craft began to steal cattle from the farm that night. The party took the craft down, only to discover that it was a model flying saucer that could be purchased at a hobbyist store, and its cloaking device was a fairly standard (if pricey) military fiber-optic tarp. The only extraterrestrial element was a strange gem attached to the craft that warped space and time, pulling the cows from the farms to an unknown location.
Determining the relatively short range of the flying saucer, the party tracked it north to a quarry where they were surprisingly ambushed by Karen Vandermeer and her BAD Operatives. Though they tried to explain themselves Vandermeer came under the sudden mental dominance of an unknown force and ordered the party’s arrest! After nearly losing Velocity and Wicasa to enemy gun fire, the part managed to incapacitate most of the soldiers.
At that moment a Vulture Transport arrived… and off stepped DOJI member Celadon Cyclone.
