Racing Against Extinction

Tatoos and Guns


Miyani got a cool nanite tattoo. She can turn it on or off at will.


Get a briefing on shanghai gang which works for nine lives. If we can take most of their equipment that gets us money and resources and likely puts them out of business. We go to scope them out. We’ll see if they spot us and see how fast they react.

Head to a gun shop and buy some light pistols.

Shanghai gang has an apartment building. We start scoping it out. Several ideas are proposed including infiltration, internet research, and surveillance. The gang is in the top two floors. Unclear if that is just their work space or if their families live here. too.

We head into the building. Luca hacks the cameras but can’t take control. Luca lingers in the lobby with two knitting ladies while the rest of us head into the elevator and we head to level 4. Elevators open and 3 goons are waiting for us. I shoot one while team mates beat the goons. After we take care of the first 3 six more goons come into the hallway. Meanwhile in the lobby Luca continues to hack. She is suspicious of the old grannies and hacks their profiles. They are suspiciously absent of anyone that lives in the building. Magna throws a goon telepathically towards another. The leader of the gang shoots Magna unconscious. I return fire with a hit. Miyani knocks the gun out of the gang leader’s hand. He returns with an electrified baton. He hits him and drags him into the hallway. Jamieson and I attack two more goons. I take a shot at Minos and hit Miyani by mistake. Miyani hits Minos in nuts and hits hard. Fight continues and everyone is taken out.

After Miyani goes into Minos’s room. And comes back out the room with Mino’s gun and shoots me in the photo. This critically woulds me and I experience pain so great that I wished I was unconscious as I can’t do a single thing including returning fire on this maniac. Miyanoi then grabs a bottle of alcohol and heads to leave. Luca and Magna locate some psychosurgical equipment when we get ambushed. Miyani tries crush a goon in the elevator door. Magna shoots the goon and Miyani instead slices him in half by taking him to the first floor and back up.

The rest of the goons are taken out. The team loots the third floor. Miyani goes upstairs and wakes up and takes with her a woman that was asleep. We leave as a group. I am not happy with this accompaniment and encourage the girl to leave but Miyani’s coercion (crital fail against me) but she appears to be very afraid. We head home.

Miyani and I stay home to recover while the rest of the group returns to continue to loot the building. They recover the rest of the psychosurgical equipment. They sell the empty bodies that require sleeving to the guy that original created our bodies. We get medical bills and healed up and sell guns. Each party member 14520 in credits.

A Day of Research / Night of Disappointment


Talk to Serif about getting a psycho surgery teacher. She is potentially more altruistic than the normal person her. Do a web search for a “charity” that does medicine in the Wards. Not only do I seem to have an inclination for this (Serif says I used to work for Doctors without boarders, and it just seems like the right thing to do). Luca helps me navigate the web and I find some postings about doctors who do this work. I send them an email. I ask Luca for help for the wording on the email but she seems to not be any better at wording things than I am. Fortunately I think I got the words right, and in the end I must have because they’ve offered to let me shadow them for the next few days. I wonder if there is any compensation for this at some point.

Go out to a bar with Jamison and Magna. They triumphantly go to the hotel with the local Rollar Derby team. I seemed to have gotten a bit drunk and someone sent me home. I don’t quite remember.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
