Second Life - Mean Streets

Game Night May 15th 2012

Payton, Etherea, Aria, and Choi continued their hospital stay. They were bored and trying to find things to do. It was learned that Madame Ekatarina Zoltara who had also been sprayed with goo had not been admitted to the hospital. Payton ordered Patrolman Dixon to send a unit to her shop in Southside and see if she was there.

Etherea had been left alone upstairs, and started to have a lovely conversation with a giant spider. Etherea is a bit creeped out by spiders it seems. So she asked it to become something nicer, and so it became a kitten.

When the others started to hallucinate, things got weirder. They all passed out and woke up in the Subvay restaurant, with Madame Zoltara, the dead zombie girl, Franklin Sawyer and a large black crow.

Apparently Madame Zoltara was having her own fever dream, and had telepathically linked the minds of all of the others that were effected by the virus. And Franklin Sawyer was their collective subconscious. The zombie girl was just a psychic residue, since she was a zombie when she died. Turns out she was working on a cure for the zombie juice. And, if the collective subconscious is to be believed it seems like she might have been a trap set by the aliens. someone that wasn’t Vashir kidnapped her and implanted the virus bomb, killing her. Then her corpse was stolen and turned into a zombie, a zombie that seemed to be after Aria. And Bonnie’s visit to Aria prompted the call to the police that drew them all together. The zombie was dropped near the area by Vashir. So, if Vashir didn’t know about the virus bomb he probably didn’t know about the visit Bonnie paid to Aria to draw the police to her, in range of the virus bomb.

It was a matter of timing, they happened to leave the hotel and go next door to the Subvay restaurant, and talked to Madame Zoltara. The psychic probably wasn’t part of the plan. So when all the evidence was staked up, it appears as though the aliens have got Bonnie working for them. Maybe they have agreed to let her have all the men she can devour. They want the entire human race dead anyway, so in the end it doesn’t matter to them how they’re killed. But let’s face it, if they’re gonna use subterfuge to wipe out a race just to steal their planet, they’re not gonna deal straight with someone like Bonnie either. They probably plan to kill her when she’s outlived her usefulness.

And then, the lights went out. Will they wake up in the hospital, or have things gotten even stranger?

Comments

oooo pictures! I like.

Least we forget, all the important ‘players’ showed up in this ‘fever dream’ as idealized versions of themselves. Or showing with some … aspects of their character. Aspects some will have to come to terms with as the virus runs it course.

I like the Noir-esque look for Payton. It was either this look, or seeing Payton dressed in a Disco Leisure Suit and a large afro. >.>

“Since Crow is the keeper of sacred law, Crow can bend the laws of the physical universe and “shape shift”. This ability is rare and unique. Few adepts exist in today’s world, and fewer still have mastered Crow’s art of shape shifting. This art includes doubling, or being in two places at one time consciously; taking on another physical form, and becoming the “fly on the wall” to observe what is happening far away….

“Crow is an omen of change. Crow lives in the void and has no sense of time. The Ancient Chiefs tell us that Crow sees simultaneously the three fates- past, present, and future. Crow merges light and darkness, seeing both inner and outer reality.”

— Sams and Carson Medicine Cards
