Chronicles Of The Gods Metaplot
The story so far
There exists in the vast expanse of reality a race of sentient life forms that call themselves the Celestials. They were a a powerful race, wielding powers of the mind that far surpassed the lesser beings of the multiverse that dwelt in their shadow. For most creatures, the Celestials were gods, deities whose thoughts one could not fathom and whose reach knew no bounds. In the growth of their civilization, the Celestials developed the technology to reality jump; and suddenly, the multiverse was opened to them for now they could blink through the very fabric time and space. At first, this technology was considered simply another stepping stone in the advancement of their civilization: though it was key to their eventual colonization of their home universe, it was nonetheless mostly overlooked. Unfortunately those days were short for as the empire of the Celestials grew, it also grew old; though their race still endured, the universe around them proved to be less resistant to aging. Thus even as the Celestials began to ascend into a level of being higher than mortal conception, their universe began to die. Entropy, the heat death and the final end of all existence took over. For all their advancements and creations, the Celestials had nothing that could stop their home from crumbling into ruin- helplessly they watched as the darkness of the night grew more and more complete with each passing day.However, some disagreed. There arose a group that advocated for the wide spread use of the reality jumping technology developed eons ago: they said that since their race still continued, they must live on. They would settle new worlds, new universes, young realities that are still in their infancy. This way their race would live on, and who knows, they may even be able to guide the newborn lifeforms of that world into greatness. Unfortunately this idea did not hold, especially not with those who were either timid or farsighted. None knew the true implications nor the consequences if an exodus was initiated: what would happen to reality itself if you forced such a large number of such powerful beings through the fabric of space and time? Eventually the disagreement became so sharp as to lead to war. A war if it could be called one for it was a war that enveloped entire galaxies, saw the deployment of weapons that transcended understanding and ultimately led to bloodshed on an unparalleled scale for in the end, when the dying embers of the charred wastes that were created settled, less than a third of all Celestials remained. Galaxies that were once filled to the brim with life now floated as desolate wastelands in the ever growing darkness. By now, both sides had been so diminished in number as to render further combat impossible. Those that wished to leave, left and gave themselves the name Nomad, for no world could ever be called home by those that had rejected their original. They wandered the multiverse, purposeless and estranged. The remaining Celestials used what technology and power that was left to them and enclosed themselves in a corner of their dying universe- an endless librarium that stood like an island in the flow of time. And now only four remain, Remnants they call themselves and forbade any interaction with their wandering kin: their only role now was to wait until the appointed end.Meanwhile, the Nomads, now unable to reproduce conventionally, began artificially creating new members of their kind, creating the Pure (created from an abstract concept) and Impure (created from a preexisting mortal being) Nomads, who gradually superseded the originals and reproduced in kind.And so this continued for years uncounted until spurred by cultural stagnation, a small cult of Nomads began to tamper in the affairs of lesser beings for their own amusement. These "games" rapidly captivated a sizable number of the Nomad population and soon such "Games" were held all around the multiverse: groups of Nomads would gather and each would select a 'lesser being' to be their representative. Said being would then be put through series of challenges along with other creatures that shared their fate. Not all games were without slaughter and bloodshed. But it was in the midst of this wanton mirth that one Nomad, an Original titled Omega, lay his plans for the destruction of all his kin. He initiated another round of these "Games" on a planet he himself had created, but the planet was merely a veil and the games were merely bait for inside this planet Omega constructed an anti-reality weapon which, if used, would plunge the multiverse into chaos and darkness. However, this final round of games proved that the Nomads had bitten off more than they could chew- Omega was not the only one with plans for his brethren and he soon found himself under increasing pressure to carry out his insanity: others had come, some with plans not too dissimilar and others bent on his ruination; schemes lay thick as cobwebs and the Champions found themselves the unwitting pawns of the powers that be. The Champions escaped the game by the skins of their teeth, rescued by an altruistic Remnant. Omega himself was thwarted and in the end overthrown by his brothers. He was then condemned by what few were willing to try him to the abyss between realities- a place of the unknown, even for a Celestial.But Omega did not die as some had hoped. Though the last vestiges of his sanity perished, he was not bereft of power. He would rise again.Approximately six months later, a Remnant contacts a pair of Nomads called Moja and Mbili out of the blue, seeking an ancient weapon- a holdover from the original war that had been thought destroyed- known only as Sifuri. But before he can aid them in their search, he is executed by his comrades for breaking their most ancient rule: total separation from the Nomads. However his sacrifice was not vain, for the nomads he had contacted proceeded to gather teams in anticipation for the missions to come; but now, no longer having another dictating their movements, their motivation for this search becomes an enigma; who knows what two such Nomads may desire from a weapon fabled capable of changing the very fabric of reality itself.Meanwhile, Omega, although he is still incapable of escaping his prison, manages to take control of something else that dwells in the same dimension, a mysterious Eldritch Abomination that appears to be something greatly feared by the Remnants. Using this power, he gathers a new group of champions and begins to force them through a set of challenges, feeding off the energy created by their passage between universes. He also contacts another Nomad, Tatu; unable to influence the physical world, he requests that an army is built for his disposal. Tatu accordingly seeks the multiverse for a team of champions that he will use as generals: they will be the ones to lead armies in his name. As a reward for their compliance, he offers them the chance to be transformed into Impure Nomads themselves; after all, few beings can deny the temptation of power.Now the board is set for the second great saga: a game of gods that will span the multiverse. And its repercussions will ensure that reality as we know it will never be the same."“A great game unfolds, my friend, ” said the stranger. “A game unlike any that ever has been or ever will be again. So vast is its scope and scale, no single player can see the entirety of the board. In one corner, tyrants and conquerors take sides in a war between angels and demons to curry the favour of their dark master; in another, champions of science and masters of magic fight for their lives in the bowels of the most wretched cesspit of a city creation has ever known; and in yet another, the would-be destroyer toys with the latest victims to be ensnared within his web, while his earlier captives scour alley, swamp and plain for the source of an insidious evil that plagues the land.”
A Game Of Gods Challenges
Challenge 0: IntroductionsThe champions meet in a soothing setting. New friendships and alliances are formed, but will the peace last?
Our story begins with a mysterious, godlike entity—a Nomad, as the narration informs us—hovering over an unknown planet and evaluating its populace. After a moment it comes to a decision, plucking a single person from their home to serve as its champion.The next day, Hahli, Toa Mahri of Water, awakens in what she believes to be her apartment after a night of strange dreams…only to discover that stepping outside deposits her not in the plazas of Ga-Metru, but in a strange hallway unlike anything she’s ever seen before. Confused and bewildered, she is joined in short order by a Beam Katana-wielding, part-time assassin known as Travis Touchdown, a diminutive ice-fairy called Cirno, and a Spartan Super Soldier who answers to the designation of 052, or Jorge; all three of them are equally as ignorant of how they arrived in this strange place.After a brief moment of tension, the hallway abruptly converts itself into a hexagonal door which, to their complete and utter shock, leads to a classy open-air restaurant located somewhere in downtown Tokyo; curiously, the human patrons and staff do not acknowledge their unusual appearances. At this point, the group is joined by Craft, a combat reploid who manages to sneak up on them all despite his immense bulk. The members of this group begin to let each other know who and what they are, while Travis intimidates the restaurant staff into giving him some pizza despite it not being on the menu.Now four more players enter the game. The first two, British SAS operative Gary Sanderson—otherwise known as Roach—and Bad Ass roadie Eddie Riggs, are welcomed into the group without much hassle; the same can most assuredly not be said of the third newcomer, the Decepticon jaguar Ravage. Having been humiliated repeatedly by humans in his own universe—and having been killed while in the process of altering history in order to wipe the hated apes and their Autobot allies from existence—he is angry to find himself surrounded by the pink-skinned munkkys, and immediately gets into a confrontation with Jorge and Craft. The final newbie, the genetically-engineered Pokémon known as Mewtwo, introduces himself by levitating everything in the room for the purpose of…stealing a single slice of Travis’ pizza. For this heinous act, the Pokémon gets stabbed by an irritated Travis to little effect.The confrontation between Ravage, Craft and Jorge quickly deteriorates, but is brought to an end when the restaurant and its patrons dissolve into nothingness. In its place form two portals, one sporting a plaque labeled with the words “PEACE THROUGH THE INDIVIDUAL”; the other bears the slogan “PEACE THROUGH THE GROUP.” Ravage, Cirno and Travis step through the Individual portal, while Hahli, Jorge, Craft, Roach, Eddie, Mewtwo and late arrivals Roxas and Mecha Sonic pass through the group portal…
…only for the “Group” team to find themselves in the curved, white hallways of a spacecraft filled with Rebel troopers; it is the opening scene of A New Hope, and soon they’ll have to repel boarding actions from the Imperials! Those who went through the “Individual” portal, by contrast, find themselves in the landing bay of Darth Vader’s Star Destroyer, the Devastator, and learn that they are part of the Imperial boarding party. Their mission; recover the Death Star plans from the Rebels, and put an end to the traitorous senator Leia Organa of Alderaan!The Devastator swiftly captures the Tantive IV, and in a matter of moments the battle is joined, with both teams lending their not-inconsiderable weight in support of their Rebel or Imperial allies. At this point, the bizarre purple man known only as Max Winwood makes his first appearance, commenting on the action but otherwise not doing much; don’t expect that to change any time soon. Part of the Imperial team breaks off in pursuit of Princess Leia, while Eddie and Travis get into a duel. Cirno, meanwhile, is treating the whole experience as a game, and Ravage has prowled off in stealth mode, attempting to hunt down the princess himself. Darth Vader, growing impatient,
Interchallenge Section: No Rest For The WickedUpon meeting each other in the halls, the group immediately begins to gripe about the mission, Cirno being the loudest. This draws Ravage's attention, and the Predacon agent sets to work on the little fairy, trying to make himself seem like the "okay guy with advice". Jorge sees this for what it is, and standoff would be initiated, were it not for Cirno's piscine attention span. The next Challenger arrives then, Saren Arterius, who, upon arrival, lifts the entire group into the air and holds Cirno hostage for answers as to where he is and how he got there. Ravage makes him back down, but the Turian is still very determined to get out, apparently having a psychotic episode when he discovers how impossibly strong the containment system is. Ravage sees opportunity in an ally, Jorge sees another, possibly worse enemy.Ravage's imagination proceeds to change the environment of the chamber into Maccadam's Old Oil House, a bar back on Cybertron. Here, the men of the group dedicate themselves to booze and music, Doctor Gordon Freeman arriving in the meantime. There is the traditional "guns first" greeting, and then everything goes back into the atmosphere of relaxation found at Maccadam's. Then Saren decides the spoil the fun with what he terms a "live-fire exercise", consisting of him summoning a small army of Geth with his mind and telling the group to try getting to him alive. Various high action shenannigans ensue, including several odd changes in scenery (ending in Black Mesa), many dying Geth, and the summoning of the immense Decepticon Devastator, along with Eddie showing off his demon form again. The skirmish ends with a directive from the Nomads, and the Challengers skulk off to the next portal.
The Group emerge from the second portal to find themselves in a town square in Verona. The year is 1582. Newcomer Gordon Freeman introduces himself to the others. Just then a scuffle breaks out in the street between two men from the Montague and Capulet families respectively. Travis and Gordon attempt to break up the fight, but things turn nasty when someone throws a tomato at Travis, causing him to slice the offender in half. Gordon and Jorge respond in kind, causing Travis to retreat into an alley.The skirmishing ends when Prince Escalus enters the scene on horseback, providing information about the two houses, allowing the group to figure out the nature of this mission. Meanwhile, Saren intercepts Travis and strong-arms the assassin into working for him.Eddie then suggests that the group provide the families with a common enemy, and Ravage is more than happy to oblige, departing to terrorize them. The rest of the group (bar Travis, Saren and Yellow) set up camp in a nearby tavern, and discuss strategies. Meanwhile,
Interchallenge Section 2: MasksThe team is returned to their rooms. When they wake up, they head out into the hall to meet up with each other again. Saren decides not to host another live-fire exercise this time around. Naturally, everyone is relieved. Jorge calls Hahli, Eddie, Craft and Gordon into his room to speak to them privately, while Saren orders Ravage, Travis and Mecha Sonic to gather in his own room for a meeting, with Narumi eavesdropping.The turian Spectre says that he knows about Ravage's ability to transform (somehow). He claims that the Decepticon's alternate form is locked down. Ravage runs an internal diagnostic to find out what's stopping him from transforming, and to the mechanical panther's horror, he discovers that he needs input from an administrator to unlock the form. Ravage claims that Transformers don't have access codes. He then realizes that the Nomads may be responsible for this. Saren resolves to find someone or something to crack the code. He also asks Ravage for advice on what they should do about Hahli and Jorge. The panther suggests leaving them alone for now, while they're still useful. Once they're no longer useful, they'll be dealt with. Saren agrees, but also expresses the desire to "influence" the Toa, red light flickering about him.Meanwhile, Jorge explains to his comrades that he is convinced that they can get the job done, and for this reason, the Spartan has grown to trust them, despite not knowing them for very long. He states that, sooner or later, the helmet is going to come off, so he has decided to show them his face now. When Jorge reveals his face, he also tells them his real name. Gordon "reintroduces" himself to the Spartan, while Craft and Eddie say that it's nice to see him in the flesh. However, Hahli is surprised and embarrassed by this. The Toa thought Jorge's helmet was his true face. When Jorge questions this, Hahli explains that masks are sacred among her people, giving them special powers. However, she doesn't mention that if one doesn't wear his/her mask, it is akin to being pantsless.Jorge is impressed with the power Hahli's mask gives her. In turn, the Toa compliments him on being a powerful warrior, even if his mask doesn't give him a special power. The Spartan explains that he was raised and equipped to be a supersoldier, and that he has been fighting for his entire life. Hahli claims that her situation is similar, though she got into it after making a mistake. Craft cuts in, telling his own story. He talks about his lover Neige, and a legendary hero known as Zero. He laments losing contact with Neige, but Jorge comforts him. He says that, though they've all lost something, they must keep fighting so they don't lose everything.Then Eddie decides to reveal his demon form, which spooks the Spartan. After these discussions, another portal pops up. Everyone regroups in front of it, and they all step inside.
Upon stepping through the portal, the challengers discover that they have been converted from their original forms to larger, mechanical bodies; they are on Cybertron, and they have been made into Autobots. Naturally, this revelation does not sit well with certain members of the party; though their reasons differ, Ravage, Gordon and Saren are markedly not pleased to learn that they are now Autobots, with the former delving into a fit of hysterics as a direct result.Unfortunately, they also discover that they are bound, along with a dropship full of other Autobot prisoners, to a massive prison complex. Furthermore, their Decepticon captors are hardly the nicest people around; one proceeds to brutalize Ravage, only to be stopped by the timely intervention of three Autobots known as Optimus, Sideswipe and Bumblebee. Optimus believes the champions to be members of an Autobot resistance cell from a different part of Cybertron, and briefly briefs them on his general plan to rescue Autobot leader Zeta Prime before their arrival at the prison complex; Ravage, noting the glaring differences between this version of Cybertron and his own, comes to the realization that they’re in an alternate reality of some sort.Once there, the party is delivered to Soundwave, the prison’s warden, who briefly interrogates them before having them sent to “recycling”; along the way, they are treated to a tour of the facility—and all the depravities which the Decepticons can commit on their helpless prisoners. At this point Saren, operating under Sovereign’s influence, attempts to exert mental control over the facility’s Dark Energon—only for Megatron to remind him who’s in charge by impaling the turian with a spire of the stuff before teleporting him into a prison cell. Finally, as their anxiety mounts while Optimus remains oddly silent, the party is led into a small room where they are lined up against the wall in preparation for an execution by one-man firing squad. Before their would-be executioners can pull the trigger, however, they are saved by the timely intervention of Air Raid, who kills the guards and frees the party of their bonds. Optimus informs the group that everything has proceeded according to plan so far—by allowing themselves to be captured by the Decepticons, they now have full access to the prison and stand a much better chance of rescuing Zeta Prime. Simultaneously, Saren and Narumi—held in different cells—escape their captors and flee into the prison; Saren reunites with the other champions fairly quickly, while the Kamen Rider goes off in a different direction.Unfortunately, more guards have arrived outside at this point, and Air Raid is forced to create a diversion as the party escapes into the service ducts; the Aerialbot is captured for his efforts, and the party gets to watch as he is dragged away and taken to Soundwave.
Interchallenge Section 3: The New ChampionsWhile the others are off fighting, there much activity in the Common Room. Several new challengers awake in their quarters: Wizard and private investigator Harry Dresden, Venus Adept Isaac, the headless Animated Armour known as The Dullahan, and explosive artist Deidara.The four attempt to work out what is going on, but eventually have the situation explained to them when Eddie finishes killing a horde of zombies in his room and explains it to them. Saren's PHANTOM hologram further explains the situation, and they begin to get their bearings, introducing themselves and reading PHANTOM's datafiles on the other challengers.Yet another new challenger makes his appearance: Rey Mysterio, who is completely out of his depth and suffers a minor breakdown when he meets the other challengers. None the less, he recomposes himself. Saren appears, but all is not well, as Lambda decides to continue messing with Saren in person. To do so, he sets the Common Room's speakers to 'Let The Squiddles Sleep' and flooding the room with Squiddles. The song gradually takes strange turn while Saren and Eddie attempt to drown out the song with copious amounts of metal. The song gets rapidly weirder culminating in an enormous tentacled monstrosity appearing in the rapidly-dissolving Common Room. It probes their minds before deciding they are 'pathetic' and not worthy of it's time. It disappears, turning the room back to normal, and Lambda reveals it was a previous Challenger who for some reason failed, before disappearing.The challenge eventually ends, and Harry returns to his quarters, coming back with Bob the Skull, and incredibly intelligent, but lecherous, spirit trapped inside a skull. A scuffle breaks out between the Challengers when newcomers Samus Aran nearly attacks the party. Shortly after this the portal to the next challenge opens.
The challenge begins when the Champions wake up and see that they are all girls. Even Ravage was a girl too, assuming a human form with great disgust. As they try to navigate through the entire day without being made insane, they team up and use their magical girl powers to defeat the monsters while helping one another make it through even though most of them have died before they were resurrected to finish the entire Challenge. They also meet another Champion: the Lich Mal-Keshar, who like all other Champions has been transformed into a human, though skeletal girl for the duration of the challenge.
The Champions arrive in the New Alexandria Hospital where they link with Noble Team. As they fight against Covenent forces, Tron tells Jorge that the odds of them helping out civilians are hopeless. Which was met with force when Jorge throws him of the aircraft they're in. Meanwhile, Saren works with the Covenant but in reality is being a double agent.Back in the common room, three more challengers appear in the game. One was Scorpion, a deceased ninja from the Shirai Ryu. Another was the Sniper from the RED Team and Spriggan, a teenager/combat specialist agent for the security specialist company Trans Global Specialists Inc. The three were introduced to the game, but Scorpion had first joined in before the latter two had arrived. Spriggan was chosen by Omicron to be his Champion, which led to a confrontation over his abduction from his world. Jorge and the others fight in Reach to secure an AI device the Covenant wants off the planet. Meanwhile, the G-Man appears in the Common Room minutes after Vezon appeared. The Nomads were able to make a deal to the G-Man to make him stop abducting Gordon. Allen and Rey meet the newcomers after arriving back in the Common Room. Phi appears drunk (after failing to speed up both the Reach and the Viking challenges) and begins to ramble on about how Rey is in love with Gordan. He retreated as soon as PHANTOM and Upsilon began to hurt him. Later on, Spriggan begins to create a 3D map of Tokyo-3 with PHANTOM to make threat assessments, as well as to test the AI's capabilities. As Spriggan and the others talk about Tokyo-3, an unknown entity straight from videos of EoE leaps out from a projector and fights the Champions before it is subdued.An Inevitable—a representative of Lambda—appears and destroys the computer equipment which had been used to display these videos, warning the group not to mention anything about Tokyo (or as Narumi theorizes, Tokyo-3). Meanwhile, the Champions with Jorge encounter more Covenant forces as they struggle to leave the planet while getting some casualties. A Pokemon trainer and Champion named Red and Natsu Dragneel the Fire Dragonslayer arrive in the room, greeted by Eddie and the other champions. The Champions, minus Subaru, were able to evacuate from Reach and rendezvous with other UNSC ships. This allowed them to exit from the game, where they were greeted with jubilation from the other waiting Champions. Subaru eventually gets back after she fights against Covenant forces one last time by blowing herself up. Later on, Calvin and Hobbes appear in the room. A new Nomad is also introduced, Eta, whose powers is based on Gluttony. His motives remain unclear, though it seems he enjoys "tasting" delicious objects. Before long, Hahli and Vezon notice each other, and tensions immediately begin to rise.
Somewhere in the middle of the Reach challenge, Lambda had Mind Raped Narumi to the point of suicide. A new comer, Raz, decides to enter his mind, which is replaying his last moments of earth. The events of Begins Night. During these events, Narumi was talking to Shotaro about how he should follow his orders. Raz shows up and explains to him that he was a friend to Narumi. Soon, the alarm sounds and Narumi heads off to fight, leaving Raz and Shotaro to follow a man who explains that he created the Gaia Memories, devices capable of transforming people into monsters. This angered Shotaro to the point of pushing him into a teleporter. After returning to Narumi and telling him that he made the child disappear, Narumi slaps him, and then nearly proceeds to slap Raz had it not been for his telekinesis. Raz calls him out for it and Narumi gives in. Shotaro then notices the child trapped in a crystal. As Narumi gets out the child, he is shot down and gives his hat to Shotaro before dying. The dream ends as Phi reveals that he had selected Raz as his champion.Reality TV! They are each paired with a random stranger from another universe and made to embark on an evening of fun and romance...
Most of the Champions are sent off to the Blind Date after Dis Baba trains them to fight off a huge dragon together. The first one was Ravage with his date Arcee, which does not leave a good impression to both Transformers. In the middle of the date, both of them got drunk from drinking Energon; this would not have gone anywhere, had the vindictive announcer not decided to spice things up a bit by taking control of Ravage's body and have him throw a punch at Arcee, starting a chain reaction of events that culminated in the Decepticon Lugnut levelling the bar with his Punch of Kill Everything. In the midst of this chaos, Dex-Starr, the Red Lantern housecat made his appearance. He is petted by Subaru, who noted his ring's powers. The date between Ravage and Arcee was a success, in that they managed to direct their aggression elsewhere and avoid killing each other in spite of their mutual hostility. Neither party was compensated in any way, shape or form for their trials, and when Arcee complained she was promptly dumped through a trap door; the announcer made it perfectly clear that this fate awaits all the (non-Champion) participants in the Challenge.The second date started shortly afterward, this one matching the Doctor up...with himself; to be specific, the Champion Doctor (hereafter referred to as Ten for simplicity's sake) was paired up with his Seventh incarnation. They stuck mainly to chatting about what they had been doing and the consequences of the Time War, a monotony that was eventually broken when the announcer and his assistant threw in a pair of Daleks to try and kill the two Doctors, who soundly fought them off in their ideosyncratically unconventional ways.Throughout this Challenge, the denizens of the Champions' home universes—along with those of over nineteen million others—found themselves privy to the dating show's events and were forced to watch with mounting incredulity. While some where exasperated and some found this hilarious, others did not approve of this strange outside interference and the effects it had, in Ravage's case, on the integrity of the timestream. To rectify this problem, the Vok have dispatched their emissary Tigerhawk to find the location of this broadcast, presumably to either retrieve or eliminate those involved...After a brief scuffle with a Sontaran, the two Doctors engaged in a memory transfer of some sort, creating a time loop that would allow the Tenth Doctor to have prior knowledge of the events he had experienced thus far, and also permit the Seventh to try and get help. The date concluded shortly afterward, and with their episode concluded the show's hosts promptly returned the Champions to the Common Room by dropping them en masse through trapdoors. Upon their arrival, they discovered that yet another Champion had been selected—one Luxanna Crownguard, Lady of Luminosity and mage champion of Demacia.
Dr. Axes and informed that they have been assigned to look after SCP-239, a little girl with the ability to warp reality to her will. They must look after her and prevent her from escaping with out destroying the entire facility by the end of the day. However, not only is she a handful for our reluctant babysitters, but several of the more dangerous SCPs appear to have escaped....
When most of the Champions arrive at the facility, they were all made D-Class personnel in charge of protecting SCP holding cells to ensure they won't break out. While Rey takes charge of making sure 239 is okay, the rest are forced to fight against 058 and 682 alongside SCP security forces to make sure they are killed. The former had been killed after the Champions were shown to see the break room's vending machine, which was also a SCP. Meanwhile, Isaac and the Dullahan, having appeared elsewhere in the facility, overhear some Foundation personnel discussing the containment measures for SCP-682 and misinterpret this as the Foundation keeping some poor man locked away in a room full of acid; naturally, they try to free the poor fellow, which ends up releasing the monster to rampage throughout the facility. It stumbled upon the other Champions, and a great and terrible battle ensued as they threw everything they had at the monster in an effort to bring it down; Isaac summoned Charon in an effort to kill the regenerating SCP, but after a moment of silent communion between the monster and the boatman of the underworld, he empowered SCP with new abilities and left. SCP-682 was ultimately defeated when Agent Strelnikov blew off part of its back using the main gun of an M1 Abrams tank and Luxanna, Isaac and Dex-Starr bombarded it with three simultaneous Pillar of Light Desperation Attacks, obliterating much of its body and reducing it to a small bundle of neurons located in the severed tip of one of its wings. The battle was not won without cost, alas; Raz was killed when he was impaled with a number of 682's tail spikes, and Luxanna blacked out after using her desperation attack. Dis Baba, who had leapt onto the beast's back and tried to slice it to ribbons with his tentacle-whips, fell from a great height and was splattered across the floor; due to his true nature, however, this did not kill him.While this was happening, new Champions appeared consisting of Samara Morgan prior to her death, CIA SOG operator Alex Mason and Samurai Jack. River Tam arrives a few minutes later. Grayson Hunt too appears in the area. They arrived outside the Common Room, which had been closed for repairs.Meanwhile, Dr. Clef plans to subdue 239 due to a reported attack in downtown New Orleans. Rey, Spriggan and Natsu were clearly opposed to this, but the former was being incapacitated by Saren. But as the argument continues, Rey is executed by Clef for his interference. Gordon and Dis Baba join the other two in opposing him with the latter using his insects to do so. However, the group is marked as enemies by SCP security forces even after 239 is subdued. After Blink was able to get the nuke out of the facility via teleportation, the party was sent back to their hideout when they were engulfed by a bright light. Some of the others also tell their stories while a few are busy attending to personal matters.
Interchallenge 4: Break
Introductions are made with the old and new Champions after the party had emerged out of the SCP challenge, so far without a verdict from the Nomads. Three men made their appearance inside the Common Room while interaction was going on. They consist of Operation Gothic Serpent vet Chief Warrant Officer 3 Michael Durant, The Black Stig and the G4 Trainer from the Hong Kong movie Option Zero who told his name as Michael Wong. After Samurai Jack tries to persuade Ravage to bring down the pinned Tigerhawk, he and Mason proceed to remove the spikes pinning the Transformer on the wall, with Narumi interested in having PHANTOM repair it so that it can be on their side. It's interrupted when Dex-Starr used his powers to melt Tigerhawk's body to nothing.This ticks PHANTOM off, however, as it was planning to use Tigerhawk's corpse to increase its power. After the appearance of two Champions who had been inactive, Subaru and Craft, and two friends of Natsu, one of which attempted the eat Tigerhawk's arm, the largest remaining part of him. The arm attacked Gajeel, the person eating it, which caused a confrontation between Mason and Subaru on one side, the arm on another and PHANTOM on yet another. The arm is fired upon by Mason and later melts. PHANTOM attempts to gain the liquid metal solution, but is accidentally stopped by Subaru, who freezes it. It then breaks and turns into gas. This causes PHANTOM to go berserk, and it fires on Subaru. Many Champions goes to Subaru's aid and Mason opens fire on PHANTOM. Saren then comes and deactivated PHANTOM, and Gordon laments that he needs PHANTOM for an experiment. Ciaphas Cain made his appearance as well.As the group continues to interact, Reznov materializes instead of Mason's personality and causes trouble in the Common Room. In the meantime, Rey gets assistance from Spriggan to teach him to be familiar with small arms. Dis Baba and Craft tell the other Champions their stories. As the group got into a training regiment consisting of running, Franken Fran made her appearance. Her introduction had somehow gave Rey and Naoto the upset stomach. Sub-Zero makes his appearance as well as Grayson Hunt.
The Champions arrive in the scenario, where they are known as a superhero group called the Silver Sentinels. They received contact with the mayor of Kirbyville, Stan Lee, to apprehend a criminal named Dr. Walrus. After beating up some mooks,
Combine Overworld, in an attempt to bring down the extra-dimensional Empire before they can set their sights on earth. In their way is an army of powerful alien war machines. Will they be able to bring down the tyrannical Combine before they invade earth?
Another portal appeared back in the Common Room, leading the Champions to the Combine world where they battled against Striders and Hunters. Mason fought with the Champions using heavy artillery, but nearly got them killed. He was subjected to rebuke from the group while Gordon went to locate a maintenance synth to give them the layout of the realm they were in. The Doctor and Hope got hit in the back when they were confronted by the Hunters before the Champions made it inside the reactor building, freeing the captive Vortigaunts. Gordon had expressed the need for him to go alone and destroy the reactor should it come to that, although Rey disapproved of Gordon's plans to simply go solo and ignore the other Champions. The Vortigaunts told the Champions, especially Gordon, that they can escape the Combine world once they were able to destroy the reactor permanently.As the Champions work together to fend off Combine Synth from getting to Gordon, the scientist was able to get to the reactor and destroy in order to take it down permanently despite being in a microwave-powered corridor. The Champions began to make their escape after a portal appears. The Red Mage becomes a casualty in this event when he accidentally trips on a Claymore mine trap planted by ex-US Marine Alex Mason in order to take down Synths in ambush. The Champions held off the Synth attack while Gordon began to sabotage the portal intended for the Combine forces to invade Earth. When he was able to destroy it, the portal back to the Common Room opened up and allowed them to escape before it was destroyed. Mos of the Champions rest up from the challenge while others plan on going to the next one.
Prior to entering the challenge, Subaru had entered a combat droid that had most of the Champion's fighting abilities and skills. However, it went haywire as it fought them using some of the Champion's bodies. The real Champions fought them with their might until a summoned duplicate of Megatron was able to defeat the droid's clone of Megatron. After the fight was done, a portal appeared that led most of the Champions to a medieval town where they had to perform a quest, most of them changing their attire to meet with the medieval timeline. Most of them decided to split up between fighting and diplomatic groups as the former went to try and combat a zombie horde near Ferendel. While doing so, they were teleported back to the Common Room in a short while. This baffled them as they wondered they were placed back there in a short time. The Champions began to talk amongst themselves on what their true purpose is with the Nomads. Mason conjured up an Urban Warfare Arena to train here prior to leaving with the others to the medieval challenge.Suddenly, Dex manipulated the Common Room to be changed into a grassy field. On the other hand, Sub-Zero changed his surroundings to a tundra-based one which led to changes back to the grasslands again. The cat later killed a cow and showed it to Spriggan, nearly scaring the teenaged Champion out of his wits. He was later introduced to Kimimaro, who told him of his world. Another confrontation later took place Mason and Saren, although it seemed that it was resolved.
Spriggan modified the Urban Warfare Training Arena to handle virtual simulations to train the Champions on their own exercises. While this was happening, Mordechai of Borderlands appeared and introduced himself to some of the Champions. A portal in the form of a TV set appeared in the Common Room, catching the attention of Naoto first. When she fell in the TV, the others mobilized to find her. When they got in the portal, they found themselves in an unknown area where everything was nearly shrouded in fog. Naoto objected to the group's decision to split up in teams due to the nature of the area they are in. When the Shadows surround them, they begin to fight back to protect the group while waiting for Naoto's instructions on where to proceed next. The group proceeds in the castle, looking for the missing Ravage. Later on, the Challengers face off against Blink's Shadow. But during this battle, Dis Baba lost his life after being impaled by ice needles. They later battle Shadow forms of Blink and Rey as well. However, Rey begins to suffer a Heroic BSOD of sorts when his Shadow throws accusations at him, even though he had accepted them. A few Champions were killed like Naoto and Raz, who had committed suicide. For this, the Nomads had placing a painful punishment on him.A few more new Champions had appeared with names such as the Critic, Link, Rayman, Ron Swanson and Icarax before the main party got back from the world after Teddie and Naoto's comrades escorted them back to the main entrance. However, Dis Baba was reported to be dead. The Champions, including the newcomers, began to engage the demons such as Seraph to get Dis Baba. However, the alien kin was left confused as to what had happened. Luxanna was agitated thanks to her experience in the Persona world.
Twilight of the Gods Challenges
Various villains begin to appear in the room including Megatron, Doctor Doom, Doctor Horrible, Fawful, Azula, Darth Maul, Air Man, Sylvanas Windrunner, Dr. Robotnik, the Joker, Vanitas, Sigma, Zod, Katsumi Daido, Monarch and Air Man. They were told by Centum of their need to participate in challenges before they are allowed to leave. Later on, Alastor, the Gilgameshes from the Fate Stay Night and Final Fantasy franchises and Vlad Masters join in. Most of them are sent in the Viking Challenge, where they join two opposing armies to battle against each other. Numerous villains work together, making new alliances.Gendo Ikari was taken out of the Challenge by Upsilon, who was replaced by Gilgamesh of the Final Fantasy franchise for undisclosed reasons.The two forces began their trek to fight in York with Doom and Megatron (as Magnar) led their respective forces for a fight to the death. Meanwhile several villains appear in the lair, including Norman Osborn aka the Green Goblin and the Dalek Sec show up to be in the game. During the game, Daido meets two other Nomads, Deca and Decim. Both Megatron and Doom killed each other in the fight while Ivar was killed by a falling, undead wyvern, allowing York to be taken in battle. The Overlords are greeted with new ones including the Shocker Rider, Captain Hook and Maleficent after their arrival back in the lair. Daido attempted to show Dr. Doom what a Gaia Memory could do, but was defeated by Jack Spicer and only proved him more of a ruffian. Meanwhile, Zod continues to plan things out with Azula after she and Harry had spent some time together.
The Overlords appear in a warehouse the moment they teleported in from their lair hideout. After a few minutes of figuring out where they are, two teenagers greeted them and offered the Overlords assistance in meeting with Amber. They were escorted to meet the leader of Evening Primrose after some introduction. With some introductions as well from the Overlords, Amber proceeds to tell them why were they recruited prior to the battle against PANDORA even though there are some skepticisms from Jack and Norman as they don't wish to associate themselves with terrorists. Daido, on the other hand, joins in a heartbeat since he used to lead the mercenary terrorist organization NEVER. Amber debriefs Megatron and the others on PANDORA's particle accelerator and how it's suppose to spell doom for Contractors and for Hell's Gate. This gives Megatron a lot of interest, seeing the Contractors in a similar situation to Doom's world. The Overlords continue to ask questions to Amber regarding the particle accelerator and the rest of the Darker than Black universe. Moments later, most of the Overlords had boarded two cargo trailer trucks carrying the dolls while they were covered by EPR fighters after spotting two incoming UAVs.In the lair, Shang Tsung of Mortal Kombat fame had arrived, who was clearly confused as to where he was. The trucks drove off from the EPR hideout as Maleficent made a spell to protect them from PANDORA detection. Moments later, the Overlords got into a big fight with PANDORA security forces determined to stop them. They were assisted by EPR fighters willing to assist them. Later, a combination of Amber's powers and the dolls brought them to the center of Hell's Gate, bringing them closer to the PANDORA complex. The Overlords engage Mai Kashiwagi, a Syndicate Contrator with fire abilities. They defeat her and Megatron crushes her head in triumph, earning some disgust from Maleficent and from Amagiri and Brita. They eventually reach the control room, confronting some of the PANDORA personnel including Syndicate members Eric Nishijima and Yoshimitsu Horai. The Overlords were aided by Mao thanks to his hacking skills. After a tense confrontation, Megatron and Mao were successful in getting the Jupiter Ring System data while the other Overlords held off PANDORA security forces and a Combat Cyborg Doll named Champ, with Kamen Rider Eternal and the Shocker Rider ending it with a Rider Double Kick. When the challenge was over, they were congratulated by an AI of their success before it showed them the image of the temple with Amber's loose clothing to indicate that she had used all Contractor powers. As the Overlords returned, they were greeted by Harry Osborn and the two new arrivals consisting of the Black Mage and Visser.
The Overlords arrive to help escort the commandos and the civilian to a safe place after being told of werewolves in the forest. Even though it was met with skepticism, the Overlords agreed to assist them in any way they can. After taking refuge, the werewolves began to make their way towards the barnhouse. The Overlords began to make preparations to meet them head-on. As they begin to barricade the place, Gilgamesh, Maleficent and the Shocker Rider investigate the house if it is free from any werewolves. A few minutes later, the werewolves proceed to attack the barricaded house, making the Overlords fight back to help the outnumbered commandos. A few of the Overlords were being killed by the werewolves while ex-STARS officer/Umbrella/Tricell researcher Albert Wesker shows up in the All-Lair before he was confronted by Kerrigan and Pete and later by Maul, who faces off against the super enchanced human.As the Overlords continue to battle against the werewolves, more of the former continue to lose their life while new challengers continue to show up in the All-Lair consisting of Nicol Bolas, Richard and General Guy. Gilgamesh, who decided to kill the werewolves, decided to use Enuma Elish to wipe them out. However, the British commandos were also killed in the process. The mission failed and the Overlords got massive headaches. This enraged all of them and thus, Gilgamesh was killed for his actions.Maleficent and the others decided that there was a need for a strong leadership, which most of the Overlords disagreed on.
The party was sent to aid the Elves to defeat the Eloh. So far, things were doing well on their side. Meanwhile back at the All-Lair, shenanigans were place such as General Guy's Shy Guy troops harassing Harry to no end. Meanwhile, Daido reveals that he is a terrorist to one of the newcomers, Koyomi, whose Berserk Button just happens to be terrorists. She kicks his ass. Daido then retreats to test out if his blood can bring the dead back to life due to it having Necro-Over properties. He tries it on a corpse and it fails, but when he uses it on a Heartless Shadow, it becomes a Flame Shadow. As they continued to fight against Eloh's forces and ensure the safety of Kaleh, Nym and Zhul, Decim had mysteriously intervened and time stopped in the Wesnoth challenge. Most of the challengers had wondered why they stopped until they were sent back to the lair before another portal opened up to lead some of them to the the planet Thor.When they came back, Harry and Norman had a fight, with Azula tending to Harry. Soon, Zod decides to use Azula's loyalty of him to kill his son which he summoned to the All-Lair. Enraged that someone could kill their own son, Fate and his harem burst in and fight Zod. The fight not only summoned The God of Fate's world, The Lifemaker, but also two Nomads, Deca and Unus. While Deca was nervous to do anything, Unus took down the Lifemaker in one shot. The Lifemaker took Fate and his harem home due to his plans being more important than the Nomads. Centum decides from this madness that the Overlords need to learn a lesson. And thus, the next challenge begins.Brainiac has put into motion a nefarious plot that could result in the end of days. The Justice League (as well as all the rest of Earth's heroes) have been incapacitated by Brainiac's forces, and it's up to the Overlords to save the day.
The Overlords, led by Zod, had arrived in the Watch Tower after emerging through a portal from the All-Lair. After being told what to do from Centum, Zod discovers that the Braniac has orchestrated multiple crises in four areas across the globe, and splits up the Overlords into four teams to deal with them. Of these four, the S.T.A.R. Labs, Centennial Park and Mars teams were able to complete their objectives in one form or another, and after defeating the villains involved (one of Brainiac's robotic duplicates, the alien menace Queen Bee and the White Martians, respectively), the Overlords prepared to confront Brainiac on the watchtower...only to learn that the insidious machine was nothing more than a pawn of the real villain, Darkseid. The Dread Lord of Apokalips made his presence known by casually ripping Bolas' head apart with his bare hands, and while the other Overlords made a spirited effort to subdue him they were no match for the New God, who soundly defeated them all with a single blast of his omega beams.The challenge might have continued from there, as did its inspiration, but due to a number of factors the GM running said challenge threw up their hands in disgust and ended it.
Overlord Challenge 6: Another Eastern Story...It is just another day in the land known as Gensokyo. Shops sell their wares, children flock to the school, farmers bring in their crops, women converse over tea and snacks, strange and powerful creatures from other worlds entirely show up with incredible powers and still restraint. Yep, just another day in the land of Gensokyo.
Those Overlords who participated in this challenge—amongst them Bolas, Megatron and Flandre Scarlet, to name but a few—found themselves transmogrified into young girls and standing within the main foyer of Flandre's home, the Scarlet Devil Mansion. After some confused dialogue between themselves and a few of the mansion's staff, they were guided by the maid Sakuya to see the owner of the house—Lady Remilia Scarlet, a powerful vampire and Flandre's older sister—in an effort to find out just what they were meant to do here; unlike most previous challenges, their objectives were not readily apparent upon their arrival.Regrettably, the Overlords never learned what they were meant to do because the Challenge came to a premature close and the Overlords were returned to the All-Lair sans Flandre, who had apparently been returned to her world. In the middle of the challenge though, Harry murdered his father and took over his role as Overlord.
AGoG/TotG Crossover Challenges
The mixed Champion/Overlord team awoke in a spaceship via cryogenic pods before they landed in Thor. Once they arrived, they were given Phi-modules as a means of aiding them in their navigation around the planet, placed on their wrists with Ravage and Megatron being detained before the latter joined up with the team after they broke out. Being interested in these devices, the team begins to ask questions to the module on what the planet was like and as to how they were involved with Thor and the era they were in. As they got to the hotel with bookings to room reservations placed under the names of Gordon and Zod, they were attacked by creatures alongside a couple of civilians, university students who were interested to hear Gordon's talk. The team was initially overwhelmed in a surprise attack before they fought back and went to see Dr. Langley, who aided them at first before she told them that she was heading out to see her husband as he was trapped in an excavation site. The group arrived in a hotel and settled down while Dr. Langley called in to see if her husband was alright. Jack contacts the hotel's security chief and the planetary administrator regarding the attack, but receives a rebuff from the latter when he told them to take it easy. Spriggan was shocked during the time of the attack and thus, blamed himself for allowing the woman to die under his watch before he vowed to get revenge on whoever was responsible for killing the students. The team evaded security forces long enough to escape their sight as martial law was declared by the planetary administration with the military being mobilized to hunt them down. The team unanimously agrees to help Dr. Langley in rescuing her husband. While escaping with the doctor, the team was forced to fight back against the military by attacking their transports. In doing so, they were able to get away. But due to unknown reasons, the spinner transports the group used crashed after Bolas and Megatron grew back to their original, tall sizes. The starts were also absent from the night sky. Dr. Ikari tried to contact Dr. Langley to no avail, owning to communication difficulties. He warned her that the group shouldn't stare at the sky for a long period of time as the scientist said that most of his excavation crew had went crazy over this.Ravage went to join up with Dr. Langley and the others, evading capture from the military and made their escape on a bus the scientist had secured as their main transport after he contacted Rey for extraction. During the escape, Rey begans to have hallucinations on hearing his wife's voice when he was with Jack, Spriggan, the Doctor and Link while everyone else began to engage a humanoid creature. Spriggan and the Doctor try to restrain him as he was being a danger to himself and the others, but Link was able to calm the wrestler down by magic. After this, Rey calmed down and the TGS agent calmly placed him on a seat and removed his restraints, being sure that he won't attack him and the others alike. Thanks to Link, the wrestler was able to relax. At this time, Narumi joined up with the group after he was initially separated, transforming to Kamen Rider Skull. Icarax caught up with the bus, getting inside with help from Kimimaro. As Link was resting, he begins to have chest problems before he collapsed while being in a dream, fighting a strange Shadow inside his consciousness. While Rey was having visions of his children, Dark Link appeared on the bus having taken over Link's body. Dark Link's presence made Icarax and Bolas challenge it before Kimimaro warned it that he won't hesitate to fight when needed. During an attack on the bus by numerous Morlocks, which was backed up by an enormous winged creature known as the Leviathan, Dark Link and the Doctor had a heated exchange, which prompted the Doctor to turn his defoliator on the being. This incapacitated him briefly, but he soon made a comeback. However, Link, from the depths of their shared psyche, managed to break the dark entity's hold on him, returning himself to reality and regaining some of his original power - but he was shaken by the event, Dark Link having tortured him and shaken his belief in himself.The Doctor dies when Galen chokes him on the throat before the journeys resumes. The group infiltrates the temples and in the middle of the fight, Spriggan was captured before he was killed. Determined to avenge his death, most of the group went to move on and battle Washington as he was the culprit responsible for the events that happened in Thor. With Washington defeated, Lambda appears using Dr. Shinji's body as a vessel to communicate with the Challengers and the Overlords before they were sent back to the Common Room/All-Lair.
A Game Of Gods: Infinities Challenges
Challenge 0: IntroThe new Champions are pulled from places throughout space and time into a field. Will they get along or will they fight?
In a meadow, Roadbuster, Neroth, Bowser, Scorpion, the EOU Droid, Sly Cooper, Shotaro, Tobias, Xigbar, Kinoko Masha, The Courier, the 11th Doctor, Archer appear dazed and confused. Most of them start getting into various fights over the confusion of why they were summoned to an unknown place. Eventually, the fights ceased since they all realized that it would not lead them somewhere.Other characters including Mehir, Jak and Daxter, Kim Gi-Soo, Link and Makuta Teridax showed up to the meadow after the fights ceased. Gray, Fluttershy and Donkey Kong have arrived in the fields too. Some of them have began interaction in getting to know one another while friendships were being made. A few minutes later, Tobias Fünke arrived after claiming that he got lost. Eventually, Link was able to get the group together and warn them that their cooperation is needed if they have to leave the place alive. Roadbuster had suggested that they head to some buildings nearby, where the group could probably get some help.Meanwhile, Saren appeared before Rey and Luxanna, the two spending at least 1 earth year with the former away from his family due to his magic skills and all that he considers him to be abnormal. They had detected the presence of new challengers and thus, decided to help them escape the place and get back home safely. As they traveled, Subaru appeared from above and dropped onto the ground. Moments later, Hellboy appeared and followed. The group arrived at the city. Or what appeared to be the ruins with a shrine. They began to survey the area to see if they can do something about it. When Rey appeared in front of the challengers alongside Luxanna and Saren, it spooked Gi-Soo that he nearly fired the CAR-15 if it weren't for Neroth and the Doctor. Shotaro nearly attacked the three, thinking they are the ones that trapped them, had it not been for Neroth. Suddenly, the group was enveloped in darkness before they appeared in a deep red, crater-scarred landscape. The appearance confused most of the people in the group. In the midst of finding a way out, Tobias's mental abilities made Lux go into a trance before he was able to stop it. Masha broke down and cried when she realized that she can't get back unless she escapes with the others. However, Xigbar and a few of the Champions helped her cheer up with Neroth telling her to stop crying.Garland joined up with the group as they tried to figure a way out of the place, starting with the nearby shrine after arriving in a dusty plain. Meanwhile, Hellboy, Sly, Xigbar, Masha and Fluttershy to explore while Gi-Soo and Shotaro stayed with Mason and the Doctor. More infighting soon continued again before Rey and some of the others forced them to fight. Shotaro took off in another direction, getting annoyed by the fights. A few were figuring out the lay of the land, particularly the gold that makes up the land itself.

Challenge 1B: Justice is ServedAn Eldritch Abomination has finally stirred, the once-complacent being is destroying those foolish enough to believe they had a chance at containing it. With an ally in a being mentally linked to the Nomads themselves, they begin to lay waste to the only institution maintaining the peace on Runeterra. Can the Champions of Champions save the Institute, or League of Justice, and by extension, this world?VICTORY CONDITIONS:
The challenge begins with the Champions arriving on the blue team's summoning platform of the incomplete Magma Chamber Field of Justice;◊ once there they are greeted by Kassadin the Void Walker and Swain the Master Tactician, who explain the situation to them. Realizing that they hold the fate of an entire world in their hands, the Champions waste no time in splitting into three teams, each of which will be assigned to a lane in order to confront the Void-aligned villains in the coming battle: Lux, Rey, Scorpion, Tobias and Teridax take the left (or bottom) path; Swain heads mid, accompanied by Grey, Saren, Subaru, Erio and Jak & Daxter; and Kassadin takes the right (or top) lane, joined by Hellboy, Archer and Xigbar. As the three teams move into position, Swain, Lux and Kassadin give their allies a brief run-down of how this battle is going to work, explaining that they need to destroy the enemies' turrets and protect their own in order to push down the lanes and destroy the Void Nexus, thereby bringing an end to the battle; along the way, they will have to contend with both the weak yet mass-produced and functionally limitless minions generated by the enemy Nexus, as well as the five Void-aligned League Champions, who will stop at nothing to vanquish their foes.The action is not long in coming—scarcely do the Champions have time to get into position before their enemies are upon them. In the bottom lane, Rey and Lux's group are forced to contend with Cho'Gath, the Terror of the Void, a monstrosity which the original Champions were forced to fight near the end of the previous game; and on mid, Swain et al are confronted with the Void's mad prophet Malhazar, who is accompanied by a smal army of savage and deadly Voidlings.

Infinities Challenge 5A: Lost Eternal Girl Brigade: The Second (GM: Anno R)
Challenge 5B: Tetris'd Championship
Infinities Challenge 6: The Game of Destiny (GM: Flanker66)Centuries have passed since the end of the last great war. However, the world is still not at peace. Despite the death of the mastermind behind the Game of Destiny - Master Albert - there have been worrying reports of increased Maverick activities and sightings of Model W, as well as Mega Men. It has become so bad that Legion, the central government of the world, has posted a request for someone - anyone - to investigate not just the sightings, but also the mysterious disappearance of Master Mikhail, one of the Sage Trinity. What is the truth behind this sudden resurgence, and what does it mean for life's future?
Infinities Challenge 7: Corridors of Time (GM: Anura)The effects of the creature Lavos on the history of the planet cannot be overstated, especially concerning how it ends. The Entity which embodies this world was starting to formulate a plan for fixing the problem, but help has now arrived from somewhere unexpected...
Infinities Challenge 8: Toontown Noire (GM: Stratofarius)In a world filled with familiar faces and normal people, the champions must solve a case that may cause a toon-riffic war that will destroy Los Angeles. But, which side are you on?
The Champions find themselves suddenly deposited in the strange world of Dungeons & Dragons. After recovering from their sudden entry they discover to their amazement (and distress in the case of Grey the Reploid) that their attire have all been changed in order to blend in with the current world. After some initial interactions including Mio astonishing the general public with her love of grass the champions are met by a Lizardfolk driving a wagon laden with pots that appeared to be on the back of some sort of Dinosaur. Fluttershy mistakes the beast of burden for a Dragon and causes general panic and confusion until the more clear minded of the group clear things up. The episode ends with the Dinosaur sending Donkey Kong sailing through the air with a swing of its tail.Meanwhile, two veterans- Arterius Saren the Ex-Spectre and The Doctor arrive; Saren collapses on arrival due to the malfunctioning of the biotic transplants in his body. While the Lizardman explains Riverrock's predicament to the gathered champions, Link and Kyouko head for the two new arrivals; Kyouko, in a rare act of kindness heals Saren while Link greets The Doctor.The Champions had split into two groups, with some following Fluttershy to the city gates and others staying behind to listen to the lizardman. At the gates of Riverrock, the champions are met by the half-ork Paladin Stalgrim who greets them skepticism. Apparently, the champions have not been the only ones to offer the city help. Meanwhile back at the grassy knoll, drama had already started with Saren striking out at Kyouko with utmost prejudice- it seemed as if Saren was very particular about how other people addressed him.After some time the Champions have managed to split into three groups- each with a separate purpose in mind. Traversing the Ia-Kong Marshes: Sazh, Saren, Samus, Sayaka, The Doctor, Kyouko, Grey, Fluttershy, Luigi.Day OneAfter an initial kerfuffle over buying anti-plague rings and potions, this hasty constructed group set off down the river Brandt on a wooden raft. Little do they know what awaits them. After a few long, sleepy hours aboard the raft the champions suddenly come to an abrupt halt in the middle of the river. They did not have much time to wonder for soon they were assailed by a Hydra intent on having something spicy for dinner. Sazh meanwhile is incapacitated by a chuul◊. Though spurred into action, the group nevertheless finds the Hydra a difficult opponent purely due to its Healing Factor. Sayaka Miki the Magical girl goes berserk. It is not until Sazh, freed from the lobster by a heroic maneuver by Luigi, casts support spells that the group truly gains ground. Saren and Samus join the fray and the battle ends without further ado as the Hydra is bombarded with lethal accuracy.The group loses their raft to the Hydra and is beached on the damp bank of the great Marsh itself. After rallying together, Sayaka causes a scene by fainting then promptly returning to normal after her healing factor kicked in. After being reprimanded by Samus on her behavior the night becomes almost a counseling session for the magical girl until an Assassin vine decides to make a snack of Grey. The vine is dismissed but this was simply the herald of the main battle for the night. Lyla Sharro, Hellfire Warlock appears; her job- to kill the champions before they cause trouble. An intense battle follows as each champion tries to pull their weight without getting in the way of the other champions. Saren carries the entire team until his mechanical arm is shattered and his armour set on fire. After nearly ending Kyouko, Lyla Sharro is finally forced to retreat by Sazh. The group now sits down to lick their wounds.Day TwoA fresh day starts with fresh drama as three of the marsh goes come down with the plague: Sayaka, Sazh and Luigi. panic is barely contained as the group now realise that their race against time has just leveled up. They set off without breakfast and toil their way through the marsh; luckily the locals decide to keep clear and not give trouble. But that didn't mean the nothing happened- just as the group starts to wonder when they were going to get anywhere a voice drifts through the air towards them. Eerie, alien, other-worldly, the voice soon holds the entire group to attention. Though the message of the voice is lost to most of the champions they nevertheless agree it was high time they picked up their pace. Fortunately they did not have far to go before they reached destination: A vast pyramid buit by some long vanished civilisation. Saren, Samus and the Doctor deduce that this is the origin of the Plague and the polluted waters after they set their scanners to work. There is now one path they must tread- the Champions must enter the pyramid and confront whatever comes their way.With only a worn diary as their guide the Champions enter the forgotten monument. Unfortunately they were soon without even a guide as a Land Wrym bursts out of the canopy, wrenches the book from Sazh and takes off with e malicious cackle. Saren and Xigbar give chase and are led through a complex maze of death traps and tunnels. Meanwhile Luigi runs away heedless in a poorly timed panic attack, making true his tactic of 'divide and conquer'. Samus is quick to respond and dashes off after the maniac Italian leaving in the dust a very frustrated Sazh and a rather confused Sayaka Miki (and Fluttershy). Dealing with the Undead: Envy, Edward Elric, Chun-li, Leo, Guilmon.Day OneAfter visiting the refugees of the plains, Edward was able to obtain a hajóföld and a clue- the name 'Tzitzimitl'. They set off on the landship but as darkness falls, they realise that the darkness gathering beneath the ship was not its shadow. Very soon, they are completely surrounded by an army of wraiths and undead abominations. Even worse, what was that thing that just blocked out the moon? After confirming that the walking, whispering shadows were indeed hostile the group flees the killer ghosts on their airship. Unfortunately, they do not get far as the thing that blocked out the moon comes crashing down, destroying the landship in the process. After blinding the group with a dark fog the Death wing is single-handedly taken down by Envy who finally decides that a serious battle would be worth his while. The Abomination is defeated, at the cost of all but one of Envy's philosopher stones.The group the moves on with Edward putting the now worm-like envy in his pocket for 'safe keeping'. However, they are soon confronted by a Night Walker◊ and a Charnel Hound◊. Just when defeat seemed inevitable, a dragon enters the fray and dispatches the two undead in short order.After hitching a ride on the friendly dragon, their rescuer reveals themselves to be a crow and an old woman. Nana Karas (the old lady) invites the group to rest in her abode and to ride out the night. The word 'Tzitzimitl' is explained to them as being some sort of Eldritch abomination from beyond the stars. But how can such a being cause the dead to rise?Day TwoDelegating with the Lizardfolk: Link, Elizibeth, Samurai Jack, Ranmaru, Selim/Pride.
Infinities Challenge 10: Shadows of Ourselves
Infinities Challenge 11: The 0-8-4"Last time, it was a hammer."
Infinities Challenge 12: Heaven's Feel
Infinities Challenge 13: Am I my Brother's Keeper? (GM: troydenite)Omega's power is growing. To Yee's horror, he manages to send the Challengers back to the time of the Celestial War, several millennia into that multiverse-spanning conflict. On a universe in the middle of nowhere, on a single uninhabited planet, two Celestials have managed to transport themselves to within ten miles of each other.

Mission 7: Revolution of the Daleks (GM: Stratofarius)
Mission 8: Raid on the Dark City (GM: Chabal2)A piece of Sifuri has ended up in the clutches of Asdrubael Vect, Supreme Archon of the Kabal of the Black Heart, the most powerful of all Dark Eldar. In order to retrieve it, the Seekers will have to fight their way through Commorragh, a test not only of martial skill, for the Dark Eldar are as many as they are swift and cruel, but of will and fortitude, for the horrors within the Dark City have driven greater men to madness.
Magic:Atrocitus, Maria, Kaku Seiga, Rayman, Toph,After regrouping from the Monsters inc. mission, the seekers meet Seiga who does not leave a good impression what with threatening to turn Maria into a zombie and all. However, the group does not have much time to consider this new member as the portal to the next mission opens with a peal of thunder. The evil nature of what lay behind the portal produces unease, especially in Atrocitus.After exiting the portal, the group is immediately confronted by the ghastly spectacle of Commorragh◊. Atrocitus experiences a mental breakdown due to the sheer number of souls waiting for vengeance, meanwhile the others are only slightly uncomfortable; Toph for once, wanted to wash her feet. Almost immediately the group is set on by a gang of blood thirsty mandrakes...only for the Mandrakes to turn tail after getting a solid beating. Seiga revives a dead Eldar to guide them; after an exchange of insults the Eldar complies. The group is directed by Kharak the Dark Eldar to the Blood Arena- the shortest route to the tower in which the Ship Piece of Sifuri is contained is by air, the arena containing skimmers which can be liberated.The group enters one of the tunnels connected to the Blood Arena and soon sights a guard with a Clawed Fiend. Despite the recommendation of taking out the guard quietly, Atrocitus launches himself into the beast and a bloody battle ensues where the beast's roars echo down the tunnel. By the time the battle ended, enough blood had been spilled to unnerve the softer members of the group- Toph and Babara whit Toph having to mentally pep talk herself into carrying on with the mission. No sooner had they gone a few paces that they are noticed by a pair of Wyches; even as the seekers engage the two whip wielders more dark eldar- this time beast masters with warp beasts- join the fray. Barbara has a mental breakdown after accidentally killing one of the Wyches- something she has never done before. Meanwhile, the newest member of Team Magic- Makuta Icarax finds himself in a jail cell in the Blood Arena.Team magic, after a short but bloody battle with the Eldar forces manages to kill every last one of them- much to Toph's displeasure. Atrocitus arms the newly freed slaves with blood armour- the crystallization of their fury and hatred of their captors. After a brief heart to heart between Atrocitus and Toph concerning why the Eldar had to die, the group moves on, determined now to reclaim their piece of Sifuri.....only to run straight into Makuta Icarax who has recently allied himself with a ragtag bunch of tech priests who are now beyond recognizing the emperor's servants. Chaos ensues and Icarax makes it very clear that he sees no reason to help the seekers, even though Maria the vampire hunter divulges their entire mission to him. Yet another fight occurs where Team magic concentrates its power into taking down Icarax. The fight is ended abruptly when Kharak frees an Astartes, child of the human emperor- the giant humanoid rapidly brings the two groups into line with the exception of the Makuta. Unfortunately this peace is very short lived as Team magic finds itself rapidly ushered into yet another series of death defying battles- this time against the Eldar gladiators. Yet still more bloodshed awaited them in this damned city.Even as fighting waxed to its peak, the entirety of the cast are brought to a standstill by the sudden proclamation of doom. The Necrons have arrived. Somehow, the most feared fighting force in the galaxy had managed to infiltrate Commoragh, heart of the dark Eldar. Knowing that the game was up, Team magic flees, with Necron Destroyers hot on their heels. Toph breaks her leg and becomes the victim of constant harassment from the Necron Wraiths. Meanwhile, Icarax had elected to stay and find what the Necrons were made out of. A duel with the Necron Lord commences, ending with Icarax crushing his staff of Life with his gravity powers. Unfortunately this was as far as he got in terms of victory- a Necron Pariah arrives and sends Icarax scuttling for safety. Even as Icarax fought the Necrons, Team magic had managed to land themselves in an ambush- trapped in an aircraft hanger choked full of Necrons. A desperate battle for survival commences where Seiga finally begins to shine in combat (due to the sudden abundance of fresh corpses)(Rayman also discovers the wonders of a Darklight gun but for some reason has stopped using it). The rest of the team however, is not so lucky: Artrocitus is running out of power, Maria is incapacitated with a severed spine and Toph's leg could only get worse after all that moving. As if to add the final nail to the coffin, the battle is joined by platoons of Dark Eldar and a very efficient Necron Lord.The Dark Eldar escape the battle, persuaded not to kill the Seekers by Kharak and reclaiming Cortez. The Webway closes around the arena, leaving the Necrons trapped. As the Archon begins interrogating the Seekers, Icarax suddenly does the same to him. Neither ego backing down, Icarax attacks and the Dark Eldar deploy horrorfex grenades to neutralize the threat. The Seekers are removed from the battlefield, leaving Icarax and Atrocitus to go after Vect by themselves. The Seekers, after explaining that they are here to kill Vect, are promised help by Vhane.ScienceTeam Science is set upon by mandrakes as soon as they arrive, making quick work of them. After the Sifuri device detects their presence and manifests itself as a Pillar of Light on a spire miles away, Urza gives the team the power of flight so as to reach it faster. They are ambushed en route by Dark Eldar flyers, but defeat them, gaining a transport in the process. With the more mechanically-minded members repairing it, they run into a more heavily-armed party. After some attempts at condescending diplomacy, both parties are ambushed adn incapacitated by unidentified Dark Eldar via hallucinogenic grenades, kidnapping Urza, Gavrill, Hood and the human interpreter. Once calm is restored, the team follows the Dark Eldar down a tunnel, but they are killed by eldar genestealer hybrids. Pressing further into the tunnels, they soon discover the underground laboratory of the haemonculus Vilstareth.The kidnapped Seekers free themselves from imprisonment and reunite with the others. The haemonculus unleashes his most twisted creations against them, but all is interrupted when a Chaos warband led by the Chaos Lord Sargon forces its way into the lab. The Seekers put up some resistance, but the soldiers of Chaos have them surrounded. Bigrench takes the opportunity to go sightseeing while Sargon's forces begin a ritual to bring in more forces but are interrupted by the Seekers finally realizing allying with Chaos is a bad idea. The battle is interrupted by the ritual stone exploding, causing the laboratory to begin crumbling. Urza, severely weakened, uses the last of his strength to summon an airship, the Weatherlight.The warband retreats, but one of the sorcerers aids the Seekers due to Urza causing a massive attack of remorse. The Seekers board the Weatherlight, but can only fly deeper into the tunnels before the craft takes too much damage. Bigrench informs the others that the haemonculus' ships are nearby, along with a large amount of prisoners who should be released to provide a distraction while they escape. There is some dilemma on the morality of such an action, but the prisoners are soon revealed to be orks. After killing the Waaagh's leaders, the orks are sent off to cause a ruckus while the Seekers head for the ships.There they discover a Dark Eldar strike force who offer them safe passage out of Commorragh. On learning that the Seekers defeated a Chaos warband despite their perfectly ordinary appearance and that they are here to kill Vect, Archon Aurelia joins them, adding the firepower of Vilstareth's captured ships to her own.As the rebel Kabals attack Vect's forces simultaneously, both flagships succeed in boarding the Dais. Vect sends his personal bodyguard against them, but the Seekers break through, forcing Vect to unleash various soul-powered speels on them, culminating in creating a miniature Warp storm headed towards his own ship. Some of the Seekers try to take out the soul cages powering Vect, who eventually falls to Gavrill and Maria's dragon, dropping the piece of Sifuri. As the Dark Eldar fall upon each other in an effort to devour Vect's soul, the Seekers act much the same trying to keep the piece from the other team. It falls into Sky's hands, evacuating both teams as Commorragh implodes into a thousand warring factions.
