(Session continued in Jotunheim in The NeverNever, January 8)
As the group decided on their next move, Telloria revealed she needed to return to NYC
to recover her Azerothian armor, which apparently Elune had revealed to her that she should wear her armor. After shouting “I HATE
Gods”, Alex reluctantly opened a portal to Telloria’s apartment, where she retrieved her armor, and then the group returned to The NeverNever.
The Dark Queen’s Army prepared, Alex opened a portal form Frost Giant Territory to Fire Giant Territory. The army marched through, emerging a days March form Surtur’s Fortress. The group remained with the Army as it marched on the Fire Giants. After several hours marching, scouts reported a combined army of Frost and Fire Giants perusing the army.
The Army was prepared to fight the Advancing Giants. Noonien Inspired the army with a rousing speech, and then battle was begun between the two armies. During this conflict the group attempted to sneak away, and were spotted, causing panic in their army as several screamed “The Queen FLEES
!!!” The group were ambushed by several Giants and made their way through a portal opened by Alex and closed by Noonien. Emerging outside Surtur’s fortress, it appeared to be nighttime, the fortress seemed deserted, and crickets could be heard.
The fortress was empty, the group went to the Treasury and retrieved the gemstone. The group then checked the throne room and discovered that the fortress was vacant, with evidence that the fortress was vacated several weeks ago. The bodies of two dark Alfar were discovered, killed in combat by Giants. Using her Psychometry, Teeloria took a reading on one of the dark alfar’s weapons. Telloria saw the two dark alfar bowing to Loki as he held the head of Surtur’s before them, followed by a message, “Come before me for the Heart you seek”
The group then returned to NYC
, discovering the date to be January 11, storing their stuff in their warehouse. Alex then beseeched Loki three times, to hear growling outside the doors. Ferris Wolf appeared, and brought them to Loki. All Loki asked for in exchange for the heart was Janice admitting she needed his help. The ‘Blessing’ was removed and Loki offered the assistance of Fenris Wolf against Ferrovax, in return for the Dragon’s body. Fenris then was transformed into a miniature and given to Telloria. The group then found themselves back in NYC
outside their warehouse.
moved form Telloria to Alex, who was rude to her, so she went to Noonien for protection form Fenris Wolf. Telloria placed the wolf in a pouch, and Paul spotted it moving. Fenris was then placed on Telloria’s shoulder. Alex than said he’d be gone for several hours, going to The Lair
. Telloria went to The Flame of Knowledge
to do research on Ferrovax. Paul requisitioned a SPAS
-12 Shotgun from the NYPD
At The Lair, Alex met with Smauverovax
. He did not seem happy about Alex’s agreeing to kill Ferrovax. Ferrovax shared with Alex that Irene Palmer, an operative of Ferrovax’s who is a doctor at New York Presbyterian Hospital, and the lover of the Dragon. After a few more questions, Alex found himself outside a phone booth in Times Square
Back at The Warehouse, Alex and Telloria shared their information (Telloria’s being not much). Telloria found basic information detailing Dr Palmer as a decorated neurosurgeon. Investigation by Paul revealed she was investigated several time by the UCU
, which in the words of Captain Elissa Mazza
“Dr. Palmer is like a combination of Dr. Moreau and Dr. Mengele”. However, she had escaped several times from prosecution due to lack of evidence.
Needing information regarding, Teri contacted Michelle Forrester, of Forrester and Forrester Investigations
to get information Irene Palmer. Additional information from the police files confirmed Irene worked at NY Presbyterian, she had a penthouse in 55 Central Park West
, owns a BMW
she dives, and has a home out in the Poconos. Several Michelle contacted Teri. Info dump: Credit Card info revealed she been spending a lot of time lately at The Plaza Hotel, 4 tickets to Mamma Mia at The Winter Garden 2 nights hence, with dinner reservations at The View Restaurant prior, and has tickets to Bermuda in two weeks. Inquiries showed the room at The Plaza was in the name of Dr. Nichodemus West, an ER Physician at NY Prebryteria, married with two kids and a home in Poughkeepsie.
After some research and discussion, the group decided to cause Dr. Palmer ot have a blowout near Tavern on the Green (Closed, out of business) and ambush her when she pulls over and examines the tire.
On January 12, at 9PM, the group ambushed Dr. Palmer. Silvermist sabotaged the driver’s side rear tire, and Dr. Placer pulled over to examine it. Paul then aimed and sniper shot her with a tranquilizer shot. The group then grabbed Dr. Palmer, threw her into Paul’s Impala, and made their way to the Docks. They boarded the boat that Alex had Noel Howe
arrange for them and made their way to Liberty Island. After putting the guards and park personnel magically to sleep, the sleepers were placed safely in basement storage.
The deduction of who was in her phone was Ferrovax, was performed then a picture of her unconscious body was sent to the dragon. When the phone rang, Telloria answered the phone then eventually hung up on the dragon. The next call was forwarded to Noonien’s phone, who too the call. Ferrovax offered to let the group live if they let her go. Noonien restated their ransom demands for twice her weight in gold. After hanging up, an approaching boat was spotted by Paul. A time update was texted, and Paul saw the man on the boat (through the sniper scope) look at his phone. After landing, the man hulled the group’s boat, sinking it. A battle with the dragon then ensued at the statue of liberty. The dragon fell finally to the Blade of Marduk, and all agreements regarding the body were met.
