The players intercepted an agent of the Aliens. His cabal was not the force behind the riots. He proved an asset to uncovering the next stage of the plan. The group concentrated on clearing the threat to the Movies in Brooklyn and the Indigent Welfare in Queens. It was determined that the Immigrant Labor Force was also threatened in a later stage of the plot.
WHO? Trump NPC (2) = “Local Hero Jimmy Walker”
WHAT? City Facet (31) = “Movies”: Aspirations, Civility, Fitness, Trust, Wealth
WHEN? Stage 2
WHY? Force action by NY City Film Censor, Joseph Ignatius Breen AKA Numinary
HOW? A picture, The Blue Angel, an elderly professor's ordered life spins dangerously out of control when he falls for a nightclub singer, staring Marlene Dietrich. A riot starts at the screening, blamed on unemployed war veterans who entered without paying and brought illegal gin.
WHO? Trump NPC (9) = “Kingmaker James Farley”
WHAT? City Facet (11) = “Indigent Welfare”: Aspirations, Civility, Trust
WHEN? Stage 3
WHY? Farley wants more boxing matches between White and Black challengers. Farley banned Dempsey from fighting Gene Tunney and publicly threatened to revoke Tex Rickard's Madison Square Garden license if he ignored the ruling of the commission. Current champion is Max Schmeling, the first European-born boxer to win the heavyweight championship in thirty-three years, Schmeling was also the first from Germany to hold the distinction. He was known as Low Blow Champion. Farley wants Schmelling to fight Joe Louis. The match will be filmed and also broadcast on the first television network.
HOW? Attempted Bribery of Kingmaker James Farley and Tex Rickard
The big revelation came when the group discovered that subliminal movies are going to be used by Unknown cabal as orientation films on Ellis Island, the site of the climax. The group has yet to discover how subliminal movies are being used in Staten Island. Nor do we know the motives of the Fem Fatale. We will be faced with her abduction at the start of next week’s adventure.
Hey, we did kill the Brawny Skeleton with the help of the Explosive Legionnaire (Anthony). The enemy fell to a mere superhuman teleporter, Dancing Skeleton, when we met him this week. But that cascade of events reduced the Transmogrify of the Marvelous Batsman and Dr Faze. In Life Goes On, one character was reduced to a mere Duplicity, a glorified sidekick, the Gas Flasher, Max-S. He doesn’t read this forum, so we can continue to mock.
Back next week with climax (likely) to Pulp Heroes.
PS Fred, we lost you start of last week and today? Cross fingers for next week.
