The Smerdiverse Episodic Campaign

February 20th, 2010: GEA Game Day

Atlantis, Ho!

Earlier, during the official GEA “Game Day” game, an artifact from Ancient Atlantis was discovered, a teleportation device that transported a large amount of the mid-Atlantic Ocean to the Valley Park and Fenton areas of the St. Louis metroplex. Valley Park and Fenton are low-lying and often flooded in real life during intense flood seasons. In the Adventure Log for the Smerdiverse Game Day Campaign for February 20th, 2010, a synopsis of that adventure can be found.

How the ancient artifact came to be in Missouri is unknown at this time.

John Erfurdt and Jeff Conway requested that Jon Klement run a session of the Episodic Campaign later that evening. Here is that session:

Several weeks later, A.S.P. scientists, having studied the artifact, determined how to reverse the teleportation effect. Agent Archer and Blue Lightning were “volunteered” to investigate the other side of the device’s teleportation gate.

They were transported, inside a mini-sub to the bottom of the mid-Atlantic and beheld the ruins of Atlantis. Being a an A.S.P. sub, it was equipped with powerful force fields that allowed it to adapt to the instant, enormous increase in pressure.

It turned out that unlike other comic book universes, the Atlantis of the Smerdiverse was not a living, thriving civilization under some aquatic dome. The city was clearly destroyed in whatever cataclysm befell it.

However, the heroic duo was surprised to find a force field protecting one of the ruined towers. A radio hail came from the tower, asking the heroes to identify themselves. Also, as the heroes approached, they could see a spaceship parked on the ocean floor inside the force field and next to the tower—the N.R.T. Davy Crockett.

The tower was apparently inhabited byNew Texans of the planetNew Texas.

The New Texans being familiar with A.S.P. from the events in Velocity Girl 4: Velocity Girl and the New Texas Space Rangers, our heroes were invited inside, where they met Colonel Jim Sanders. Colonel Sanders explained that the Greys were under Earth’s oceans looking for some kind of Atlantean artifact. The New Texans made it a policy to keep anything out of the Greys’ hands that they seemed to want that badly. The New Texas Space Rangers were determined to find whatever the Greys were looking for first.

Blue Lightning and Agent Archer decided to keep their information about the artifact discovered in the middle of North America in Missouri to themselves for the time being and returned to their sub after a cordial meal with the New Texans.

The game session ended with the two heroes in their mini-sub awaiting orders from A.S.P..
