Nuclear Strike: Session 1 Highlights
So, here are just some of the highlights from last night’s session of Nuclear Strike:
- Chad the rat found a jar of something radioactive and drank it. While he did get sick he got better, but now he’s got a cancerous growth on his back. Viinn’s biometric scans revealed that the growth has an exact DNA match with Chad and a further X-ray revealed that there was a little rat person growing in there. Also, a tiny skateboard? As Viinn put it, “Congratulations, you are with clone.” Sadly for Chad Jr. (who Chad intends to name Thad) his clone dad has no ambition, so he probably can’t look forward to any good parenting coming from him.
- On their way to their main mission at the Heckhole (a giant subspace rift in reality) the group saw a number of interesting sights and sounds: a mountain that eventually disappears as you walk closer to it (called Mt. Big Ghosty Boy), a sulphuric oasis in the middle of the wasteland, an ICBM jutting from the ground as if it was some weird obelisk, and a giant scorpion with a tophat carrying a house, inside of which was a smaller giant scorpion with a smaller tophat.
- Said scorpions were brothers who ran a store selling Scorpions & Scorpion Accessories. The group obviously bought a bag of scorpions from them with the star piece that Coriander found on the ground earlier (it was actually just a really cool rock, but Coriander was so convinced that it was a star piece that it became a star piece).
- Returning for a minute to Fryer Tom and his special sauces: his modified mayo dispenser can fire mustard (toxic bomb), hot sauce (fire bomb), mayonnaise (sticky bomb) and smoky BBQ sauce (smoke bomb). We only got to see hot sauce and mustard during the first session, but hopefully he’ll get really experimental with his combat cooking in the future.
Next time the group will eventually make it to the Heckhole, where things will most likely get proper weird.
