Tier 0mega - Savage Worlds Steampunk RPG

From the shadows steps a tall figure in a tailcoat and well fitted pants. As he passes a lady on the street he taps his cane to his top hat in acknowledgment. Once fully past the lady, our tall fellow spins around, pulling his sword from the cane shaft, and plunges the blade between her shoulder blades. The svelt figure starts and her scream turns into a yowl. Before the gentleman the svelt figure expands, the clothing parts, and before him stands a werewolf. After a few minutes of battle, the gentleman stands victorious over his fallen foe. As he gazes down upon the furred form it slowly transforms back to a feminine figure, sweet upon the eyes, but for the slashes and bloody strikes that mar its body.

The concept... We are a role-play gaming group based in Starkville, Mississippi. This site is used for our Savage Worlds campaign that is running with a base of the Gaslight world of Victorian England and interspersing some form the Rippers setting and a splash of Steampunk. We have the grace of the author to utilize the concept of "the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences" as we are free gathering just having some fun. Although we will be drawing ideas from different sources, it is meant as an honor to the authors and not to steal from them.

The Story So Far

We went to Avery's bank, to search for the strange bars. We found a crystal bar and a ripple in the tile that points toward the subway. 

Two more listening devices  found in the big bank when we inquired there. The Embassy requested that we run the strange bars to their Warehouse, where they had stored the others. When we get there, Nathaniel tries the handle and it breaks off into his hand. He knocks with the bar and the bar tears through the steel door liked tissue paper. He sees that there was a fire fight on the inside of the warehouse. There are random body parts that are scattered around, as well as places where the place was vaporized. We noticed that this place was not unlike the place we house werewolves when they need a place to be on a full moon. In the center of this place there is  a scroll work transportation bar on an eight foot thick bomb deflection.

Upon investigation, Simon finds a desk in the corner next to a weapons rack. On the desk is a log book that states when the bars were taken in. it also reports when the werewolves were released and that he roof top watch had reported a Zombie whale ship coming near the warehouse.

We noticed that the bars were placed throughout the complex in a perfect triangle. To Wayne this looks like a matter Transporter. Amelia ran a note to the Embassy and eventually we all met up there. 

Eventually we made our way past a subway when we were going to one of the banks. There was a police line that was attempting to keep the reporters out. One of the police asked us why we wanted to be down there. Belinda made a remark that we were looking for a member of our party, that was supposed to arrive by train. Simon used his papers to claim to be a Pinkerton agent, because that was what the police man had said was allowed down.  The scene was horrendous. The walls are painted in blood and gore. There are different sized body parts of A lot of people. Almost as if fifteen foot machete had struck out and hit at five different heights all at once. Wayne couldn't get over the scene and was completely dumb struck. The train has crashed as it would in a cartoon. The engine is folded like an acordian and the imprint of what stopped it is forever bent into the metal. Two men are talking in the corner. They pull the "You-can't-be-in-here" routine. Simon tried to claim to be Pinkertons again only to have a gun drawn on him. Slowly, Ameilia pulls her Scotland Yard paperwork and explains that we are here on another matter and saw the commotion. We have experience in this field that they might not. They accepted our help. The Sharpshooter, Hank, mentions something about Amelia being pretty. Lady Belinda says something with "a courting" in it.

Upon investigation, there are scrape marks on the tunnels roof and on the ground. We notice that the scratch marks are bigger than Lord Crichton can manage.  Then we threw some Stooge like stunts to help Wayne get out of his stupor. ​Roars are heard at either end of the tracks. Amelia was pulls out her sawed off shotgun and The Sharp shooter makes with the wise. The other agent uses above methods to keep the civlians away. Hank goes with us.

The tunnel darkens as we go over the train. Inside the train car there is nothing but blood and more gore. Up in front of us, just past the train is a fifteen foot creature that is shoved into a twelve food space. Amelia, being the first to sight the creature gives out a gasp that alerts the rest to the danger. For the most part, the team jumps into the train. Wayne, having been revived with morphine, was slowed. Despite Lady Belinda's efforts, the fireball spit by the creature hits them both. Nathaniel was enraged and used the anger to be brave. He was able to get a lucky strike on the creature and ended the confrontation before it began.

 

The team heads in the direction of the other Roar that was heard. This creature seemed to be able to travel must faster. While we walk along we enter another station that has two eviscerated people.  Hank claims they weren't paying attention. Crichton has decided it was time to poof so when the light hits, Lord Crichton is werewhipit. He was hoping to get a reaction from the American. He simply says, "uh, I guess ya make'em smaller over there, don't ya?" and walks on. Lord Crichton mumbles about eating Hank under his breath. 

After we continued to walk when we came across armed dead americans with bent guns. Lady Belinda made the off handed comment that Americans were unobservant here. Three hours later we came to a train station when a fireball seemingly came out of the walls. Wayne got hit with the fireballs, thus requiring more morphine. The beast entered into the light and Wayne was stupored again. (Wayne was having a bad day.) Lady Belinda was able to get a shot off. Lord Crichton grew bigger and managed to damage the Creature. This creature was estimated to be eighteen feet tall. Simon shot at it. One shot hit the creature, but the next hit Lord Crichton by accident. 

At somepoint in the fight the Creature stepped back and out of the light. Wayne came to his senses when he could not longer see it and managed to blow up a water main in his haste to attack. Hank surged forward and was also lost to the darkness. We turned off the light and used night vision goggles. We found that Hank could change into a WereBear. He was bigger than Lord Crichton which undoubtedly irked the WereWhipit. Eventually in the haste to be the one that killed the creature, Hank, Nathaniel and Lord Criton are all around the Creature in the cramped space of the tunnel. Lady Belinda begins to have a religious experience in the tunnel and prays that God will help the team. Lord Crichton was able to scrape the Creature vitally without harming his allies and the creature was no more. Wayne becomes afraid again and attacks the group of people in his attempt to harm the now dead creature using his "Cone gun". Most of the team was able to anticipate this sudden fear filled betrayal but Hank was caught unawares and was severely damaged by the blast. However he is still able to walk and talk. He is just extremely unhappy about it. Ada slapped Wayne to keep him from attacking again. Amelia wonders how it is okay for Ada to do it but not the rest of them.

On the way up to the surface, Hank and Lord Crichton change back to human form. Amelia wanted to make sure Hank was okay.

The trip to North America was mostly uneventful. We saw a Zombie Whale Ship that was tracking a French ship, but we deemed it none of our business. Once we arrived in America, we immediately set about being snobbish Brits. After checking into our hotel, we met with our treasury Contact (Who's name is not in my notes). He unwillingly brought us to two banks. 

One bank, called Barthalamews Bank, had narrow windows. The sides of the five story building had no handholds and where made of flat granite. There were big iron gates that surround it. the side alley has a reinforced set of doors that could let a carriage in. Beyond that there seems to be a court yard with guards moving in it.  In the court yard there is a cavernous place that will allow the carriage to turn around after a ten foot tunnel. there is a door that is recessed into the wall at the end. This cavern area is two stories high and has essentially been designed as a kill zone. Each of the four corners house a place where guards may shoot down to the first floor. Through the recessed door is a corridor that leads downward, there is the vault behind two bank doors. The vault is a hallway with five smaller, jail like vaults to either side. The floors outside the jail cell vaults are painted with the owners of the contents. They seem to be reserves for the industry and a few other banks. We are assured that all the guards have shot guns and plenty of ammo. Guards also have the ability to sing the doors in and lock them.

A few counter measures are in place. They have a fifteen feet of concrete around everything in the underground vault. They also have the ability to hear if someone is digging their way into the vaults. 

There is a park across the street with a person. He seems to be reading the newspaper but to our trained eyes he is obviously watching the joint.

 

The second bank was called Avery's. this bank is in an Area of Finance and Law Offices. The bank itself is in the bottom two floors of an Eight story building. There are Iron bars on the widows, but otherwise it is nondescript. The street is busy, and there is a fire house under renovation across the street. Wayne spotted the light on the third floor corner window of the firehouse. 

From the outside the bank does not look super secure. Inside the bank, the four teller windows have brass bars, and the doors are made of the same heavy brass. The managers offices are upstairs. When we were escorted to the vault, the petty cash portion was filled with an immense amount of cash. Further in, it can be seen that the Vault of this bank is in the floor. A Crane is used to open the door and there are four different locking mechanics for the door. It could be opened by one person, but is far more efficient to be opened by two. 

Inside the vault, the main portion forms an octagon. there are individual vaults on each side of the octagon. Here there are layers of steel and concrete eight fee thick with electrical defenses to keep the vault safe from underground tampering. There is also an alarm that uses the water pressure as a detection system. The bank itself is powered with the city grid and they also has a generator within the building. 

Inside the vaults, our group notices that a few of the bars don't look right. They are a few shades off of the other gold bars. Computer chips were embedded in the gold bars and there are crystals that vibrate as sound hit it. We tracked the shipment as coming from Atlanta two weeks prior. We determined that they were listening devices. 

In the lobby of the bank, there is an elderly guard on duty, but therer are atleast two more guards in the back with shotguns.

Wayne snuck away to investigate the firehouse while he was invisable. He found that the third floor had survey work happening. There were paint spots for the legs on different portions of the floor. there was also a copper wire in a intricate circle laid on the ground. There were plans that stated in engineering notes as well, for the circle as well as the dimensions of the street between here and the bank. Wayne took the plans and distorted the copper wire in several places. 

Taking the bars back to the Embassy, we find that the listening bar reacts to sound when it is placed in water and that the second bar is a transportation spell bar.
