Previously in the Smerdiverse Episodic Campaign, look-alikes (or perhaps the same look-alike on different occasions) of Michael Savant were mysteriously encountered. Since Michael Savant began his first ever Smerdiverse Campaign session with amnesia and remembers nothing that occurred before the first session he ever appeared in, locating one of these copies, twins, clones, or whatever they are has been an ongoing subplot for his character as he tries to uncover the secrets of his forgotten past.
At the beginning of this session, the St. Louis police department found a Michael Savant look-alike dressed (and smelling) like a homeless person, mumbling to himself and pacing back and forth in front of a derelict building in the Soulard district.
Because several folks in the neighborhood had called the station complaining about this man, the officers picked up this vagrant and began taking him away in their car. The car crashed and the feed from the car cam stopped.
The police car had been stopped and toppled over onto its side around the corner from Penelope’s apartment building. Uuuuugh! and Michael Savant arrived on the scene just in time to save the Michael Savant look-alike from being taken by the combined forces of the Tundra Frogalong with Pandore and his Posse.
During the battle, the earth control powers of the Tundra Frog triggered an earthquake that snapped Naru out of her catatonic state in a mental hospital not far from Soulard. She managed to walk out of the hospital while the nurses and orderlies were dealing with the chaotic aftermath of the earthquake. (No one expected a young girl who has been catatonic for years to suddenly get up and walk away.)
After psychically communing with the Earth regarding the origin of the earthquake, Naru began telekinetically floating to the Soulard district and the battle.
When she arrived, she began psychically linking to the combatants on both sides and attracted the attention of Thistleknell, a dark fairy queen who acts as a sort of warped mother figure to Pandore and his Posse.
The Chronomancer, having delivered his pizza, changed into his costume and joined the fight.
The heroes succeeded in getting the Michael Savant look-alike into an A.S.P. flying van which took off at a high rate of speed toward A.S.P. headquarters.
The session ended with the scientists at A.S.P. headquarters attaching electrodes to both Michael Savant and his look-alike to begin finding some answers as to their mystery. The look-alike had not responded well to ordinary interrogation, seeming to have some kind of mental disorder that prevented him from being lucid or coherent.
