[Female, platinum blonde Newscaster]

Earlier today, a Knight Errant raid, in the Seattle suburb of Puyallup, was the successful conclusion of a month long investigation into the illegal production of an advanced form of BTL. This illegal BTL laboratory was, as it seems located on the premises of the old General Medical Care facilities

[Video footage running in background: Showing two (familiar) Ares Roadmaster (one of which has a very distinct Eye-Cancer Green paint job) parked in the vicinity of the SHGMC. One half buried in the front door, the other just off the road, firing towards the building’s roof. Additionally, a number of rotor drones can be seen flying around the area and firing at targets in the facility.]

[Hispanic male news caster]

As it can be seen, the brave men and women of Knight Errant work restlessly to make Seattle saver. Sources inside the force told WTFSN that a number of suspects were killed during in the ensuing firefight. Further reports indicate that one Knight Errant office was injured and that a number of suspects were taken in custody.

[Video still running in background showing the Troll Samurai still firing into the building, while one of the Humans can be seen bandaging up the Elf that got injured when your team entered the premise. However, the video seems to have been edited, and no details in regards to the identity of the participants are shown; except of course the two trucks.]

The group used a bomb [view cuts to a burning Nissan Jack Rabbit out side of the Stuffer’s] as a distraction to cause confusion and mayhem”

[Camera switches to bored looking Knight Errant police officer]: "In the early hours, 4 suspects exploded a device in fron of the store and subsequently entered the premises with weapons drawn. Confronted with a dangerous situation, a number of the customers reacted to the situation and confronted the alleged robbers [grainy security camera footage of the insight of Garask standing up and confronting Crank verbally] verbally and physical [cut to a view of Vidarr stalking around a shelf and opening up with 2 Streetline Specials on Crank]. We are looking into this incident, and asking that the involved parties come forward and assist in the investigation. We are conducting interviews with the alleged victims of this almost robbery [in the background you can see Vern and Veronica being seated in a squad car] and are confident to have this incident resolved soon.
Coincidentally, we further asking for any information in regards to a suspected, heavily armed 3rd party that might have been involved in this incident [Camera veers over to the insufficiently covered bloody body of Joeby, with small flags a few meters away, marking what seem to be several shell casings].

Anyone with information to this incident, please call 1-800-We-PayU. Thank you and we have your back, Seattle! "

Saturday, May 18th

Email from Officer Cropky

Yo Chummer,

Tell me, Vidarr.. In what kind of drek are you involved now? That Feathered Serpent logo you had me look up belongs to some kind of mercenary group out of Aztlan. See the details further down.

The fingerprint you gave me belongs to a guy named Santiago Garcia, who came to Seattle via SeaTac International on the 10th of this month by direct flight from Tenochtitlan. Interestingly enough, the fingerprint also seems to be related to a house fire in Redmond last night and belonged to the aforementioned Santiago Garcia, only that he was burnt to a crisp. So, tell me Vidarr, how did you get that fingerprint? Did you have anything to do with that fire? Or do you have any information about why an Aztlan mercenary team would hit that particular place?

Of course there is no information about Santiago Garcia, however, I believe that this is a burn ID used for travelling.

Results Stylized Serpent Feather Motif


The feathered serpent is a logo of the group of professionals who are based out of Tenochtitlan, the capital of Aztlan. The group is known as La Serpiente Verde.

Information about the group are sparse, but it is rumored that they are sometimes work as mercenaries and are hired assets for Aztechnology, specializing in corporate asset extraction and recovery. More detailed information about La Serpiente Verde is extremely hard to come by and would cost you a nice sum of nuyen and would need extremely well placed connections.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
