[Gamma World] In the Shadow of Zeus [IC]

THE STORY

Gamma World is a place of new sights, strange creatures and odd tales.

One such tale is that of our protagonists. Grouped together by the need to use their shared belongings, the party - consisting of a Gravity Controlling Jello, a Swarm of Salamanders, a Walking Carpet who happens to be on fire, a super-human who can run at blistering speeds and a prototype Crash Test Dummy made of super-processors and a very malleable body, - have gathered their pooled expertise and resources to ride through the wastelands.

In this harsh and cruel world, these few adventures and opportunists have come to trade from town to town, fight off raiders and now are moving out into the greater plains to make their fortune. All of this would be just just fine, but the latest village they have come to is different.

This one could be trouble.

    Your caravan comes to a slow halt on the borders of what appears to be a small-time, run down town. Much like the other towns you have come across, this one seems to be suffering from various states of disrepair, with one shining exception. The sign that greets you into this dust ball is lit up like a Christmas tree, proudly displaying the words;

    Welcome to Dead Man’s Boon;
    Home of the Cockroach Surprise Shake.


    On the side of the sign, a cartoonish image of a cockroach in a milkshake glass waves at you, the animated squeal of metal as offensive to the ear as the image is to the eye. Around the sign are various piles of trash and debris, obviously blown out of the place that looks like it could have come out of the Old West, were it not for the gaudy paintings of rocket-ships and cartoon cockroaches.

    The only signs of life seem to be coming from the quickly shutting slats covering the windows of the buildings as you come close, and the ringing sound of distorted music coming from what appears to be half a diner from down the road. For the most part the Diner is in the open dust, as if half of it simply... went away.

    You can see some people inside, although from here it is hard to make it out.

    Disembarking from your collected caravan, your party moves into the main street running up the center of Dead Man’s Boon.

    An enormous red skinned salamander wearing a leather jacket climbed down off of the back of a skittish looking paint horse. As he dropped down the spurs on his boots rattled off of the stony ground startling his horse. He clapped the animal on it's side gently sending up a cloud of dust as he looked on at the unimpressive looking little town. "Cockroach surpise shake eh? Never could stomach those little varmints. They have a nasty habit of refusing to be digested."

    Sal Mander tugged a dull metal mace out of a rope harness hanging from the horse's saddle before hefting it up onto his shoulder. Looking at the rest of his caravan he smiled. "Lets go say howdy."

    Bald, painfully thin, Liam Blackhand jogs into town, leaving dust devils in his wake. He's wearing a padded vest and pants, both liberally decorated with long, occasionally bloody slashes; these often correspond to nasty scars left by the whatever-the-hell-they-were-keeping in that lab. He doesn't know where it was, or how he got here, or why he decided to salvage two freaking boats which are now strapped to his back by a complex harness system. Somewhere along the line those memories disappeared. All he knows is that he hasn't eaten in too many hours for his metabolism to handle.

    Half a diner still has food.

    (Never mind that, I forgot we had so many wagons available.)

    Hotaru stopped next to the red lizards' wagons. sniffsniff "A bit dusty for my taste...and Hot, this is way to hot."
    Hotaru is tall and well thick and furry...did she mention the fur? Well, her outfit includes bits of tire strung together over her shoulders, metal bits cobbled up over her furry chest. Over her ear sits a weird contraption it covers her ears and has an antenna sticking up from it.

    Jellica undulated in midair next to him. Her voice rippled out into the desert. "Let's eat then." She pointed her giant wooden spoon at the diner like a drum majorette.

    The plastic man, who designated itself as Brad Roberts, clatters down off of the wagon noisily. It takes a moment to secure the car seat strapped to the front of his beige frame, checking the garden hose securing the seat for punctures and deterioration. Brad had an issue with...dissolving things accidentally. The makeshift armor was more to obscure the dummy's caved-in chest than for protection, but it didn't hurt to take precautions.

    It hoped this town would be a little bit duller than the previous, but it knew it was not so fortunate.

    Brad intoned, voice metallic and ringing, which was odd since he was made of plastic, "Once, there was this guy who was really, really hungry. That guy was me. Let's go get some grub."

    As the group walks / waddles / floats down the main street towards the diner, the sound of discordant music from the broken down jukebox becomes a touch cleaner. For those of you with a musical appreciation, you recognize the artist as Morley Bogslapper, a fish mutant who has a penchant for swamp-roots country music. His gargling warble is singing about how his spawning partner swam off with a strange trout and left him with his seven thousand kids – most of which he promptly ate out of grief.

    You all travel unmolested up the main street. Reaching the threshold of the diner, you look in to see several dreary, run down looking mutants; most of them humanoid. Behind the diner bar, a tall, thin crab-faced mutant polishes glasses with his clawed hands, his two eyestalks swiveling to look at the group.

    “What will it be, folks?” he sighs; as if the very question itself pulls away some of his life force.

    [Can everyone give me a Perception Roll please?]

    Brad sat down at the nearest empty stool at the bar, careful not to touch anything, lest it dissolved in front of him. "Yes, my good...man, I'll have whatever you serve that is fried, covered in powdered, or comes on a stick. Preferably all three. And a cotton candy, if you have some. Your cotton candy machine is operational, right? I'm afraid you might have a riot on your hands," he says, gesturing to the sorry lot of downers already in the diner, "if they knew there was no cotton candy to be had." The plastic man tried his best to smile, but his frozen features only gave so much. Hopefully, the crabman was less than horrified by his expression.

    Sal sidled up to bar and settled himself down on a stoll in front of the crab-faced mutant. He curled his tail around the rusty bar beneath the paper thin cushion of his stool as he spun himself from side to side.

    "Well pardner I don't reckon you could russle up enough clean glasses to serve my trail mates and me a round of drinks now could you?"

    The crab-faced server seems to pull his soul out of the wretched pit it dwells in to show a brief flicker of disgust, confusion and horror at the combined requests. All of a sudden, the melancholy seemed to return, as if the creature before you realized what kind of sad, tragic existence it lived in before reaching over to a metal hose and squeezing the button on the top to fill up five glasses with thick, pink-colored matter. The frosty treat quivers for a moment before settling and a thin film of what appears to be oily grease settles on the surface.

    “Five Cockroach Surprise Shakes it is then,” he manages to mutter before picking up a glass, spitting in it and wiping it with a cloth.

    “You folks seem new to this end of the slum, so I am gonna cut you a break; Drink your drinks, mount your horses and keep moving. There ain’t anything for your types here, not unless you feel like dealing with the Zeus Electric Company.”

    To the side you hear one of the patrons whisper a dramatic Dun-dun-duunnnnnn, as if the situation had been rehearsed. Even then, the choreography seemed to lack… feeling.
    GoodOmens: Your character's quick attention to detail notes that everyone in the bar seems to be downtrodden and in various states of poverty. None of them have drinks or food, and in fact the degree of poverty does not seem to blend well with all the electric lighting and music. In fact, you are not sure exactly how they have electricity without the sound of a generator nearby.

    I'm not liking the sound of that. Not at all. Thing is, I don't think the crab-man's looking for trouble. No point wearing out our welcome too soon.

    "We appreciate your hospitality. We'll move ourselves along once we've had a little break." Big sip. "Damned good cockroach."

    Liam rapidly saunters over to Brad. Sotto voce: You got those binoculars handy? Let's take a quick look outside.

    Jellica bent over her roach shake and began to absorb it.

    She wiggled a little bit. "Pardon, but we're not from around here. Who's the Zeus Electric Company?"

    Sal gulped down his drink in a single gulp and set the glass back out the bar. It rattled off of the dirty wood threatening to fall to the ground for a second before it settled. He belched and a tongue of fire escaped from his mouth.

    "Durn cockraoches." His wiry hand suddenly flew through the air and wrapped itself around one of the crabman's antenna pulling him halfway over the bar. "I don't much like being told to make for the trail before I'm good and ready mister. Now why don't you tell me everything you know about this electric compnay before I ferget what I learned in sunday school."

    He released the mutated bartender and stood up from his stool with a sour expression.

    Brad shrugs and, after a minute of rustling in his pack, hands Liam the binoculars. "Don't break them, please."

    The Crab-man was about to open his mandibles to answer the question of the jelly-based customer when he was stopped by Sal’s assault. Strangely enough, the man did not react out of fear, more a cold, resentful expectation of what was next. He seemed more surprised that he was let go without being punched in the face.

    “Don’t be getting’ me wrong, stranger,” The server said, although his voice couldn’t seem to get off the flat floor. “The Zeus Electric Company runs this town now after we all couldn’t pay our utility bills. Anyone that strays into their territory is immediately a customer of theirs. It says so in the Terms and Conditions, see?” he said, pointing over to a wall with a worn-looking roll of paper twelve feet long. At closer inspection, it seems to be a utility contract.

    “I dare say you are already in debt by bein’ here five minutes. You should go before their Customer Service Reps turn up.”

    Walking in the direction the serve had pointed Sal looked over the lengthy sheet of paper dimly. Then he teared it down off of the wall and tossed it into the air. The worn paper burst into flames in midair and fell to the ground little more than ash and quickly darkening cinders. "Never could get my head around letters. I leave reading to preachers and lawyers."

    Sal turned looked around at the other diners. "I reckon someone needs to tell these Zeus fellas that they can't push old Sal E. Mander around."

    Every member of the room who was a local resident stood up out of reflexive horror when the contract went up in flame, and sagging, the crab-server seemed to mournfully shake his head.

    “Well, that’s another fee. I’m gonna have a visit from the Collection Agents for sure, now. Thanks.” the server said, pouring the last of his emotions into one sarcastically spit word.

    “I’m closing early. I’d go hang myself were it not for my crab wife and kids. I guess another year in their debtors prison ain’t gonna kill me.”

    "You ain't going to no jailhouse if'n I have any say in it pardner." Sal stormed through the entrance of the diner and looked up and down the street. Hiss tongue flicked in and out of his mouth as he glanced around.

    "I wanna talk to this Zeus fella! Where you get off charging this feller and his youngins more than they can afford? And what the blazes is a utility?!"

    Jellica accidentally absorbs the glass as well and is distracted as it swims about in her gelatinous body.

    Jellica made a slight hiccupping noise.

    "Oh, dear. Sorry about the glass. I will extrude it shortly."

    She hovered near the bartender and said, "Don't worry about the utility company, sir. I'm sure we will be able to resolve all your customer service issues shortly. We will simply explain that we are from out of town and would gladly take the blame for any infractions caused on your premises today. I'm sure we will be able to work something out," she soothed.

    There was a popping sound and the glass clattered onto the bar, covered in green jelly.

    "And there it is," Jellica said. She sounded pleased.

    Picking up a piece of glass before the crabman could get it Hotaru licks the green off and scowls at it. Turning to Jellica, "I thought you would taste better then that..." Hotaru breaths on the glass with some blue fire to melt the glasses edges so it wouldn't be sharp and she pops it in her mouth crunching down on it. "Thats more like it! Yum!"

    The crab-man finds enough emotional reaction to promptly vomit on the table in horror.

    [Just waiting for GoodOmen's roll, then we can get to a showdown!]

    Hotaru, looks at the crabmans vomit on the bar and start poking it trying to find any real good bites.

    Liam follows Sal out the front door, scans the road with the binocs. Dust, more dust, and not much else. "Looks like they'll be coming to us. I'm not sure I like the idea of dealing with corporate types. They tend to be unpleasant at best." Takes one last sip. "Gah, I hate roaches."

    With the background sound of a hungry yeti and two more patrons vomiting in disgust at its antics, Sal and Brad both notice some movement coming from down the road. There are eight figures in total. As they start to become more clear though the miasma of heat, you can see that they all appear to be wearing the same uniform.

    Each person is dressed in a bright yellow jumpsuit with blue trim and a large blue Z on the front. Their heads are hidden by a large helmet in the shape of a giant light bulb. Adding an extra two and a half feet on top of the person inside the ludicrously large light bulb is on, although the head inside is a blurry shadow. Each of the seven is holding a large monkey wrench and some others are holding what appear to be industrial cattle prods.

    The eighth figure – a much slimmer one – has the same jumpsuit and bulb motif, but in his hands rests a long polearm with what appear to be two electrical conductors on the end, crackling gleefully. He is also wearing a name badge with the words;

    CARL
    Zeus Electric Company
    Customer Service Representative

    “Greetings, consumers!” he calls out cheerfully. “I see your caravan is parked on Zeus Company property! That incurs a fee of two thousand dollars! How would you like to pay? Cash or…. err… cash?”

    "Looks like you and your crew all have the same idea." Liam starts pacing with nervous energy, a slow stroll to him but a decent jog to most. "Based on the looks of the people in there, I'm guessing that idea is...what...extortion? These people don't have anything, and we aren't inclined to give you anything. You can't get blood from a stone." Liam laughs, a high-pitched, discordant whine as his words speed up. "Well, Hotaru in there can, he's freaky strong. Sal even more so. Hell, I'm not even sure what Ms. Blob can do."

    "You're going to go away now. We're going to finish our drinks in peace."
