Five Sentinels, each with a secret worth concealing from The Org, set off into the Martian desert on an op that is doomed from the start. A scientist has gone missing in the TITAN Quarantine Zone, a Gatecrashing physicist whose ego may contain knowledge that The Go-Nin Group would kill to possess. She and her family flew their airship into the TQZ weeks earlier on a foolhardy mission to retake the lost Martian city of Quirain from the remnant war machines, and they haven’t been heard from since. Did Go-Nin’s bounty hunters finally catch up with them, or are the deadly perils of the Quarantine Zone to blame? Whether they like it or not, the Sentinels will have to track her down for retrieval, dead or alive. However, it soon becomes clear that their target was in possession of something more than just protected knowledge, something that will force the team members to reveal their true loyalties. Can they make it out of The Zone alive? Listen to find out!

This game session was based on the Eclipse Phase scenario “Million Year Echo,” by Jack Graham.

  • mm, traitor PCs. is Chris some kind of posthuman?

    • Chris’ pre-gen Vashtian is the main reason I wanted to run Million Year Echo. He’s infected with the exsurgent virus, using Firewall as a cover to explore exciting new vectors to spread it around. He’s already hit zero Lucidity and would be totally unplayable as a PC in any normal scenario.

      It’s pretty wonderful.

    • Chris

      I had a fun time with this character! I really liked the skirks. I’m usually not a fan of playing pre-gens, but Vashtian was awesome

  • Omega

    I’m liking this weird, non-linear storytelling already (and, well, having ready MYE also watching this play out is very interesting because I know all the SEKRETS), but very shortly in, you guys have immediately tripped my OCD. DB is SOM/10 round down. And the Wasp Knife almost assuredly doesn’t do it’s bonus damage on Mars, especially to a low pressure adapted Ruster or Alpiner (It’s only explicitly mentioned to work in vacuum which is effectively zero pressure and underwater, which starts at roughly 1 atm of pressure and goes up). Not that it mattered, since Alex didn’t have to actually make his request as “The
    target must be damaged for the canister’s contents to
    affect them.”

    But I know this shit is pretty cray, so I’m ready to see where this whole thing goes. My reaction immediately was “Are you guys pulling a Tarantino on me?”. You guys just need to not pull this shit on me in the small hours of the morning, it keeps me awake at night. (Seriously, I cannot rest until I complain about it. The gentle rustling of my jimmies is almost as stimulating as caffeine)

    • “Radio Argosy’s Super Sounds of the Twentieth Century Weekend just keeps on coming this little public domain ditty that reached up to number twenty-one in May of 1970…”

  • Man, when things go bad in Fire Wall, things go really BAD 🙂
    Of course with a whole unit of traitors, maybe the highers ups were on to them and thought a suicide mission in the QT zone would tidy things up nicely.
    Can’t wait to hear what happens in pt2!
