Sparkles in the Sky Part 1

After my workout (legs/back), breakfast (645 calories, 72 grams protein) and shower I found my comrades discussing the computer-telegraph we got from that cop, Nigel.

Nigel told us about some alien activity in the park and we decided to check it out.

Turns out that there is this shimmering light-thing (looks a little like a mirror) hanging in mid air in the park. A lady said that her dog had run into it and the leash between her and the dog was cut by the light-thing.

Armin rigged up a movie camera on a stick and stuck it through the object. He showed us the pictures of the other side where the grass is very green.

Just then a small boy walked out of the object and talked to us like he knew us. He told us about his village before Nigel frightened him and the child fled back through the object. The object flashed and I followed the boy into the object, but after I passed through it I was on the green grass of a large field.

In the distance I could see a village but there was no boy. After marking the location of the object I walked to the village.

I found my comrades waiting for me in the village before I got there. It turns out that the village is in Scotland—Victorian era Scotland!

We found a store in the village where I traded my wristwatch for a bit of local cash and bought some local clothes.

As we left the store there was an explosion in the sky and tiny, bright objects rained down. We had to hide under a porch to avoid the objects touching us. The tiny objects turned out to be very small aliens whose ship exploded. They asked us for help, so we tried to get the townspeople to help us gather the aliens up, safely.

We were interrupted by the town’s priest who thought the aliens were the Devil’s work. After some loud arguing, we managed to convince the townspeople to disregard his overreaction and help us to gather the aliens together.

London Below Part 2

Participants: Kirill, Sean, David

Continued to follow the hacker into the restaurant; Kirill and David enter the kitchen, and claim that they are shutting the place down due to Salmonella. In the meantime, Sean has gone to an Indian restaurant, and meets up with a former student, who is there waiting on tables. He talks to her, and she asks to meet him in the bathroom. She is worried about her brother, who has gone missing, while Sean is hitting on her. He calls his colleagues, who happen to be at the same restaurant. Sean enters the kitchen, as Kirill walks through the kitchen to the inner room. The dishwasher follows him, as Kirill locks himself in the room. No one is there. The other two start approaching the dishwasher, as he starts shooting the door, and then starts shooting them. Kirill finds the secret door, and goes down the elevator. He enters the underground complex, sneaks up on a guy and knocks him out. Sean and David talks the guy down, after shooting him. They enter the room, and Sean gets into the computer and gets the info on Mr. Finch and Mr. Schlogg. They also enter the elevator and go down. They enter the security room, and take down the man observing there as well, with kirill. The two modern day men then enter the bar, and go into the office of Mr. Schlogg. The hacker is sitting quietly, looking like he has been beaten up. They try to deal with Mr. Schlogg, asking about setting up a deal, and somewhat convincing him. Kirill explores the rest of the complex, knocking out another guard. The modern men get a tour, as Kirill tries to use a sledge hammer to get into the cell at the end of the storage container. Mr. Shlogg rushes as his heavy takes some shots. Kirill takes down the tough, as Mr. Schlogg intimidates David. Sean was checking the shelves. Kirill takes down Mr. Schlogg with a sledgehammer; Sean grabs equipment off his body. He opens the prison, as the two lovebirds meet up. The female prisoner is revealed to be a cat being called Sister Mary Joseph. The crew cleans up, grabbing some equipment and taking burnt out equipment to the SUV. They apprehend Mr. Schlogg for Torchwood Cardiff, and contact the police to arrest the rest of the thugs.
Mission accomplished.

London Below Part 1

Participants: Chris F (NPC), Chris B (Kirill) and Jared (David)

Started off “London Underground”, where our new Torchwood London operatives were given a tour of their new base. Then, after Gwen left, they received a call from DI Pipps, learning of the death of Janet Dyne, the computer tech gal. They drive over there (getting pulled over for speeding, but talk their way out of the issue), and get to the crime site. They arrive, talk to Police Constable Nigel Everton at that site. They inspect the crime site, and find the body of Janet. They get clues (of the ticket, take some hairs, take the computer). They talk to two neighbors, Mary who found the body, and Susan who identified two men leaving the scene. They return to the base, trying to figure out the information. The computer reveals that two time displacements occured. With that, then the Hacker NPC character, Armin, came up from the basement (hilarious moment, when he looked at his ID card and realized it was of the murder victim). He tried to cover up the card, but the other character, David, managed to snatch it out of his hands, and recognize it (also hilairous). At that point, they cuffed him and began to interrogate him. He tries not to say anything specific, but insists he has come to repair the computer system. Kirill drags him into the firing range. Armin manages to break out of his handcuffs, but Kirill shoots him. The shot causes a lot of damage, but manages to knock the listening device out of his arm. Armin spills the beans, and the other two agree to help out. Armin builds a device to transport information, but is also a tracking device. He is called by Mr. Finch, who makes arrangements to head to the dog park. All three head over to the park, and split up. Armin meets Mr. Finch at the site, while Kirill watches. David waits at the car. Armin goes with Mr. Finch, and is followed by David and Kirill. They follow the suspects at a good distant, and end up at an Indian restaurant. Kirill sneaks around, but Mr. Finch does feel that he is followed. David comes around and joins Kirill.

Arrowdown Part 4

Participants: Kirill, David, Sean

The band of three finish their encounter with the nestene conciousness. Kirill keeps the autons at bay, as David grabs the auton half breed. The cyborg manages to break his hypnotic control and is keen to escape. Sean, the scientist, runs past the nestene conciousness, and tries to light the book he found (to light the conciousness on fire). Unexpectedly, the book warps it’s appearance, and turns into another text completely, written in alien.
In the meantime, the conciousness no longer has a mouthpiece and is merely making gutteral sounds, and the autons are either shooting or walking towards the heroes. In the meantime, the cavern is beginning to fill up with water.
Kirill takes up covering postion and draws fire, as the other two run out the exit into the caverns. The cyborg is helped along by David. The autons trip and get caught up by the water, so they can’t keep up. The water keeps rising, keeping the nestene conciuosness busy. The heroes manage to get out, and look down to the town from the playground. Part of the boardwalk has collapsed, but the hotel is intact. They head down to the hotel, and meet up with Theresa. She is hugging Alan, and is ecstatic. Captain Jack and Gwen Cooper manages to meet up with the heroes, and gets the low down. This tired but exuberant group report what happened, and are rewarded by becoming the newest Torchwood unit.

Arrowdown Part 3

Participants – David, Sean and Kirill.
They start out in the restaurant of Monroe, after hearing from Theresa.

They decide to sneak into the fairgrounds. Kirill manages to sneak into the fairgrounds, but Sean gets noticed. The first auton starts to go after Sean. David, the torchwood operative, starts firing at the auton (that looks like a ghost). Kirill is sneaking through the fairground. Two other autons, near a building near the train, start to walk towards the other two men. Sean screams, and then runs towards the parking lot. David keeps shooting, and Kirill keeps sneaking. Kirill enters the building, and finds a tunnel. David blows an arm off the auton; Sean manages to break into a vehicle, and hotwire the car. They avoid the autons, and drive to the building. Kirill explores the tunnels, and comes upon the nestene conciousness, a auton halfbreed, and the grim reaper auton. He began to fire, uselessly into the liquid being. Multiple shots are fired, with no effect. The nestene conciousness starts moaning, and the hybrid starts speaking. The other two manage to get into and through the tunnels. Kirill takes a shot at the hybrid, and hurts him quit a bit, managing to striking his head and knocking off the plastic. By the time they meet up with him, Kirill is firing at the grim reaper auton, but a vampire auton steps out of the catacombs as well. Sean notices that the cave is under monroes, with water seeping along the back. They also notice a dalek being uncovered as well, dug from a concrete area. Sean, avoiding the pseudopods of the nestene conciousness, dives into the corner. David grabs the hybird and interogates him, finding out that the NC wants to get the rift energy from the dalek, and possibly even take over/ destroy the world. The hybrid is recognized by Sean, to be the husband of Theresa. Kirill, with urging from Sean, shoots at the back wall, and water begins to enter the cave, through a number of the bullet holes. David is struck by the NC, the husband breaks free of his hold, and the GR auton’s weapon explodes and is destroyed. The remaining three autons are half a movement away, within the catacombs. Cliffhanger…..

Arrowdown Part 2

The Group consisted of:
Chris (Kirill Gauk)
Jared (David Gloss)
Drew (Sean David Vetter)
Location: all three return to the main dining room in Monroe, the restaurant. The Autons are firing on the hotel. Theresa states that if they listen to her commands, that they can stop the loop. She needs more power for the rift manipulator. Kirill doesn’t want to listen to her and asks for a weapon. She pulls out an assault rifle from behind the cash register. After some tugging back and forth, he takes the gun and sets up behind the front doors, to take aim at the Autons.
David and Sean head towards the back, after Theresa instructs to disrupt the power lines to the rooms. David goes to the kitchen, which is impossibly large. Heathen runs up the stairs to meet up with Sean. There, they come to a hallway with 3 doors. The middle door leads to a spartan bedroom with a photo of a man with Theresa. The east door leads to the attack, with a black pool, under a single bulb. It is unearthly in nature, as examined by David dipping a pen in the liquid, and Sean using his scientific knowledge.
During this time Kirill had exchanged shots with the slowly oncoming Autons. He knocks one down, and hit another. The Autons return fire, but one of them has their weapon explode. The doors and hotel walls take some damage.
Meanwhile, Sean uses his butane torch to burn through the pipes leading into the room. The attic returns to normal. They cross the hallway, and encounter a huge library, with wingtip chairs and small side tables. Sean notices that the books include ‘the time machine’ and ‘the time travelers wife’. He burns through the pipes after Sean unsuccessfully rips the wires. The room disappears, but the book of the time machine stays behind, which Sean picks up.
The two men then return below to the kitchen. The pipes are disrupted, and the room returns to a more appropriately sized kitchen.
Theresa says that there is enough power and changes the time loop. Outside, things return to normal, the Autons are called by a distant figure next to the fairgrounds and walk back there.
Theresa explains, by way of Sean’s charm, what had been going on. Torchwood found evidence of a Dalek therein 1944. They covered his body in cement but monitored time energies since that time. In the 1980s, things slowed down. Theresa and her husband noticed an increase in the energies and was returning to London to inform Torchwood. However, they were hit ‘by a drunk driver’. Her husband died, and she returned to keep a low profile. However, she developed the rift manipulator, and started experimenting with temporal loops. She is hoping to find her husband. But now the town is under attack by the Autons, but she doesn’t know why.
David contacted Torchwood, and spoke with Janet, communication operative. She agreed with the info from Theresa, and also informed the group about Autons and the nesting consciousness. Kirill wandered over to the vortex manipulator, and tried to activate it. Theresa explained the machine to him, and scanned him, but could not explain his appearance in this time period.
The group decided they had to sneak up on the Autons
