Season One Episode List

Sentinel City

Episode 1: Hyperreality Bites Five strangers are forced into service on a mysterious mission, traveling to parallel universes and occupying the bodies of key figures. Their first world: surperheroes!...of reality TV?

Summary:

Mysterious agents for an unknown organization visited four individuals: a yoga teacher and secret cat burglar named Aquamarine, the aging rodeo queenRosie Harvin, and prison psychologist Jenika Clarkson. These three were coerced and blackmailed into blindly joining a secret program for purposes unknown.
Around the same time, Crash Jaxun, a professional gamer and hacker extraordinaire, showed up unexpectedly; he claimed to know about the program and demanded a chance to join it. Yet another individual, a technician for the program named Jebidiah Lexingon, was informed that his duties had changed and he would be joining the project as well. These five formed the core team for a mission that injects them into an alternate universe, where they occupy the bodies of strangers.

After a brief introduction to the Project Manager Col. Steve Richardson and Chief Engineer Dr. Samantha Simkins, as well as a vague explanation of the project itself, the pilots were directed into their metapods and immediately uploaded into their first alternate world--Earth 00668, Sentinel City.

The pilots found themselves in a waiting room, in the bodies of superheroes: Lady Veil, Hex Destiny, Mr. Moxie, Riptide, and Bombshell 3.0. These individuals had entered themselves in a competition reality show called American Sentinel, and they were grouped together for the team rounds, starting with a hostage situation in a bank. Unfortunately, a problem with another superhero with a prior claim forced Mr. Moxie to revert to his previous childhood title, Kid Titan, which he'd abandoned after writing a contraversial tell-all book about his experiences as a teenage sidekick.

The judges made a brief visit to the waiting room to welcome all of the contestants. They were:
--Doctor Dynamo, a one-time supervillain turned hero for the second time and a former member of the Sentinels;
--Katrina Callsman, owner of a well known superhero IP; and
--Encino Girl, who wielded the power of the valley.

Following an introduction from vapid host Bryan Seacrest, the newly branded Alpha Squad were sent into the challenge, where they proved less than stellar initially. They never got around to formulating a plan until fully mired in the problem. Some struggled to get into the building, while others were faced with Jackhammer, the Janitor, and the Curler inside. Kid Titan inexplicably began the challenge by punching the outside wall of the bank. Ultimately the were able to stop a lot of bank robbers, but not before Johnny Legion, another superhero with the ability to clone himself, swooped in and rescued the hostages out from under them.

It's only after the excitement of the challenge has faded that the team realize they have no logout interface and no way to step out of these avatars without outside help.

Episode 2: Earth 00668

Trapped in the bodies of superheroes, the team finds themselves unwitting contestants on America's hottest competition: "American Sentinel."  They are sent to protect a mall opening, but is there something else afoot...?

Summary:

Following the failure of their first challenge, Alpha Squad sat together and discussed their performance. They came to two points of agreement:
1. Talking together and formulating a united plan is a better way for them to achieve success, and
2. Johnny Legion is kind of a dick.

The team immediately had to revise their list of irritating competitors, however, when Reddit Lad came over solely to insult and belittle them. They exchanged verbal abuse, and ultimately the team used their powers to attack him in multiple small but humiliating ways. The argument was only stopped by an intern stepping in and sending them off on their next challenge: security work at a newly opening Sentinel City Mall.

On the bus over, one of the show staff informs Kid Titan that he's scheduled next for the confessional, and asks if he can get a bit of preliminary interviewing done before. Through the course of this interview, we learn about Butch Baker's career as a private investigator, the infamous Rocketboots Incident, and the event that brought him back to super heroism.

The bus arrives at the mall shortly after. The dedication of the mall was planned to begin shortly, and the Mayor Cynthia John's crew is already setting up, so the team disperse briefly to explore the space, form a perimeter around the mayor, and any possible avenues of defense. As they do so, Kid Titan recognizes a very fashionably suited man standing near the mayor as Armor Guy, a preeminent former sentinel who has a particular beef with him regarding his writings. Reconvening, the team puts together a plan of action, wires a few of Bombshell's nanowasps to act as communication devices, and spreads out to look for potential threats. They listen with half an ear and a handful of salt to Armor Guy's welcoming speech, noticing an odd proliferation of mimes and other street performers. In the midst of the Mayor's speech, the mimes begin harassing some of the security guards, and four of them rush the stage at the same time the team hear screaming from the thirst floor.

Alpha Squad initially prove very successful, taking out most of the mimes right off, despite their ability to conjure walls through mime. The mimes are reinforced by a team of buskers wielding the power of really uncool music, however, and three villains, Chambermaid, Le Resistance, and Punch-and-Judy, used the chaos as cover to carry off a bystander. The team had to split their attention to clean up the remaining chaos in the mall and lasso the monorail serving as a getaway car. The villains are ultimately overpowered in an epic showdown in a monorail car, the hostage saved, but not before Riptide is knocked unconscious and Lady Veil dies and must regenerate.

After a brief moment of consternation as Hex Destiny tried to recall where she left the hostage, Alpha Squad return to accolades and discover that they have rescued no less than the British Ambassador to Sentinel City, Lord John Marbury, Earl of Cray, Marquis of Needham and Dolby, Baronet of Brisee.
For their success, the team members (with the exception of Lady Veil, who's still reincarnating)are given opportunities to briefly advocate for themselves as the next American Sentinel; their speeches are somewhat less than stunning, but well meant and well received.

Episode 3: Finger Licking' Dead

The gang must race against a rival squad to defeat a "fowl" threat to Sentinel City.

Summary:

Little has happened in the week since Alpha Squad's previous challenge. They have been sequestered from one another with no opportunity to talk. Bombshell's nanowasp continues to harass Reddit Lad, who has no doubt had a bit of his own harassment to dish out in return. Kid Titan has noticed that his powers seem to be weaker and a little less reliable than usual.

One of the show interns asked for an interview with a member of Alpha Squad; his conversation with Bombshell was...not perhaps the best interview ever given.

A home world scientist attempted to communicate with the metapilots, but the connection is spotty and unreliable; she indicated that they'd had trouble retrieving the pilots but would keep trying. Jebediah corroborated this, stating that the metapod system is highly experimental.

All conversation ended abruptly with the arrival of armed soldiers, however, who led them to their transit to the next challenge. Aquamarine attempted to seduce one of the guards; she didn't get much information about the next challenge, but did garner herself a fanboy and almost acquired his gun. So the team were left to their musings, as the guards take them to a deserted center city location near an empty mall and leave them in favor of defensive positions around the perimeter. Nearby, the team does notice the presence of two other squads. One was composed of Reddit Lad and the Four Chans; the other was Plan A, consisting of Red Menace, Granny Mabel, Johnny Legion, General Panic, and the Conductor.

Before the teams can respond much to the presence of one another, they were shocked by the abrupt arrival of their challenge: a 50m tall golem fashioned out of assorted food court leftovers into the shape of a chicken.

Reddit Lad and the Four Chans prove less than effective in this challenge; it seems that a largely mindless chicken golem is not particularly vulnerable to psychological warfare. Aquamarine's seduction attempts (yes, you read that right) prove similarly weak. Reddit Lad and the Chans are temporarily incapacitated, and Aquamarine is killed (again). Our team begin eating and shredding as much of the chicken as they can, but it finds a way to regenerate itself from nearby fast food joints. Plan A was conspicuously reluctant to join this fight.

Recongizing the challenge, Alpha Squad paused briefly to construct a united plan. Aiding them was Hex's magic, which told her that the chicken golem seemed to depend on a series of focal points on the chicken's fowl body. Galvanizing them was Kid Titan's knowledge of geography, which told him that a major food distribution hub was a mile away and probably had enough greasy junk to make their foe unstoppable. A combination of grapples, spells, and blasts from the team assailed the chicken all at once, and for the first time it seemed genuinely distressed.

The team was startled, however, when Reddit Lad and the Four Chans launched their own attacks--not against the chicken, but against the female members of Alpha Squad. Johnny Legion also launched an attack, but against Riptide. Bombshell was unharmed, but Riptide had to pause and fight off Johnny Legion clones. Hex Destiny had toentirely redirect her assault onto herself to get Reddit Lad out of her head and away from her powers.

Reddit Lad finally gave up his control of Hex Destiny around the same time the chicken assault began to gain traction. Alpha Squad ripped off one wing and destroy a power node on its chest; Granny Mabel and the Conductor belatedly decided to break with Johnny Legion, uniting to destroy the other wing. In a final coup de gras, Kid Titan used the wrapping tangled chicken to bludgeon the Four Chans, which left it prone and open for Riptide to freeze the legs so the remaining members of Alpha Squad and Plan A could destroy them.

The remains of the magic that animated the chicken coalesced into an Amulet of Life and Death and Life missing a piece, so the remaining teams scoured the food court until they could find the remaining section and reconstitute it.

Before the showrunners can respond to this success, the pilots are unceremoniously sucked back into the metapods and their home world.

Episode 4: David Bowie's Codpiece

Yeah, it's going to be an a-maze-ing episode: we guarantee it.

Summary:

The day after our party had been ripped from Sentinel City and returned to their bodies in the metapods, they gather in a blandly beige conference room. The team has been examined both physically and psychologically, then allowed a chance to rest and eat in the entirely adequate but not exactly thrilling Program facilities.

In a briefing with Col. Richardson and Dr. Simkins, the team listened dully as a scientist, Dr. Linnea Johnson, briefed them on the computer readouts and results from their most recent trip. She noted that they had had trouble re-interfacing a given pilot with a particular world more than once, but believed they had a workaround they wanted to test.

When questioned about any insights they've gained from the trip, Crash stated his belief that Kid Titan and Bombshell 3.0 are each "hiding something." He noted that he only remembers Kid Titan's secret when in Sentinel City, however, and that while he was sure about Bombshell having a secret, he was also sure that Kid Titan couldn't tell that she was hiding something. Interestingly, Jenika had no stated awareness of any secret Bombshell might conceal. When questioned about it further, Jaxun stated that this world was detailed in a comic book series he reads, and the in the books, there is no Bombshell 3.0.

While Col. Richardson was eager to see the team return to Sentinel City, he felt that they needed a more experienced pilot to help guide them, codenamed the Operative, who was brought in. The team was less than thrilled by this new addition, even more so when the Operative resisted any invitation to share anything about himself including his name.

The insertion process went relatively smoothly, the players return to their previous avatars. Upon arrival, however, the pilots found themselves in unusual circumstances. Lady Vale and Riptide were in a room that resembles a German beer hall following a barroom fight, complete with a few unconscious people in traditional German garb. Bombshell 3.0 and Hex Destiny were in a small rectangular bare white cubicle with identical doors on each wall. Kid Titan and The Operative's avatar Hashtag Hashtag were in the midst of a fight with a group of animated tiny marionettes, who attempt to charm and garotte them. None of them had the nanowasps Bombshell gave them for communication.

With their characteristic determination, the team began to work their way through the challenges that faced them. Half a roomful of gun turrets was convinced to shoot rainbows instead of bullets; the other half is taken down by a swarm of hungry nanowasps. As the team slowly convene in a roomful of rainbows and defunct turrets, some of them pause to cavort among the colors and others pause to appreciate the view. And then they were off to the maze again.

No sooner do Hashtag Hashtag and Kid Titan escape the marionettes but they find themselves in a rock concert with undead bees.

As the remainder of the team moved on, they discovered a dark room with walls low enough for them to fly up and see the rest of the maze. Unfortunately, that room also had unfriendly balls of walking molten tar. What's more, the whole team was beset by a series of minor difficulties with the metapods causing unexpected buffering. Hex was finally able to draw the tar from herself to make a directional guide to her friends and to the exit, but it took time.

In the midst of this, a siren and a message came over the PA system, requesting security send a response team to Green Room Alpha to address "a probable code silver" and "multiple code blues."

After a long walk down a road of reconstituted tar, the reconnected team at last found its way to the inevitable feature of any good maze: a large, dangerous (and, as it happens, very refined) minotaur. The team was well prepared, however. A quick spell drew a flurry of string into play from who knows where; a swarm of nanowasps and a cloud of directed steam slowed its roll. Kid Titan's presentation of himself as a human shield may have been the only thing that kept Hashtag Hashtag in the game. That just left time for Johnny Legion to join the fray against them, however specifically focusing on Riptide.

After a moment to get their bearings, the team sprung into action. The string proved perfect for disarming the minotaur, and Hashtag distracted the minotaur with an uncontrollable need to high five. Boiling blood took out four of Johnny Legion's clones. Hex started The original Johnny Legion on a massive drinking binge. And 350 damage to the nethers is enough to take any minotaur out, especially when you can follow it up by dropping him on the remaining clones.

At least the exit doors open and the team is ready to celebrate when a troop of armored police officers take Hex Destiny and Bombshell into custody concerning the death of Reddit Lad. It seems that he and one of the Four Chans was found beaten to death in the Green Room with a nanowasp on the corpses and a bit of soul loss on the Chan. It was also at this moment that the Operative found himself unexpectedly drawn back into his own body.

Episode 5: Permanent Down Vote

With two of their own accused of murder, the MetaPilots seek out the real killer/s. Or are their teammates guilty after all?

Summary:

The show opened on the police station, where Bombshell and Hex Destiny had been taken for questioning following the suspicious death of Reddit Lad and one of the four Chans. The heroes chose not to resist and were not handcuffed--although considering their abilities, handcuffs probably would've been just a formality anyway. They also managed to convince detectives to question them together, since Hex is a minor, and a quick haiku from Hex made both detectives inclined to believe. The story remained a little far fetched, however, and apparently offers to pinch butts aren't a good way to defend yourself against criminal charges. Ultimately, the detectives were confused by the pair, but took Bombshell's log of her interactions from the period in question and released the pair. Bombshell discreetly left a nanowasp behind for spying.

The rest of the team, meanwhile, had gathered in Kid Titan's rather scruffy office to await the results of the investigation. On the TV, the host, Bob Baker (formerly known as the superhero Titan, and Kid Titan's uncle), was discussing the murders. The American Sentinel showrunners had decided to suspend eliminations for that round in light of them, which made the bottom most contestants, including Lady Veil, potential suspects. Armor Guy came on the show as one of American Sentinel's producers; they worked their way through the usual PR gestures, discreetly avoiding Reddit Lad's less savory behavior, before the interview came around to Kid Titan's book and Armor Guy's declaration that "a man who would stab his fellow capes in the back like that, you just can't trust someone like that. There's no telling what a guy like that's capable of."

Kid Titan managed (barely) to resist destroying the TV long enough to hear the next interview with Dr. Migraine, a former superhero who stepped away from the business following a massive war among supers known only as the Day of Reckoning. Migraine briefly discussed the work Johnny Legion had done with the American Sentinel producers to find himself as a supervillain, then the segment ended.

With a little prompting from an anonymous note and word that their comrades were out of the police precinct, the team resolved to do a little investigating of their own, starting with the morgue. It took a little seduction, some mistaken identity, and a phone call, the team were able to finagle a few minutes of time to discreetly examine the corpses of Reddit Lad and the murdered Chan.

Study of the bodies yielded some new information, if not much. The bodies did seem to have sustained blunt force trauma on the scale of a 900lb rabbit, but no claw or tooth marks. The Chan's blood appeared to have boiled. Both bodies had clear toxicology screenings, and the nanowasps Bombshell left on them reported spikes in their heart rates that occurred just before death, possibly fear related; Kid Titan was able to detect an unusual magical aura on those two bodies, but couldn't identify it.

Hex Destiny slipped into the faewyld and wasn't able to find the missing pieces of the Chan's soul, but did briefly see the soul of an eliminated competitor named Boot Scoot. When the team investigated Boot Scoot's corpse, they found that his chart indicated a death roughly a day ago, shortly after his elimination, from cardiac arrest. They also find the remains of the Seamstress, a competitor killed 3 days prior by fabric suffocation; the Weasel, a washed up superhero who'd been poisoned; and Carpal Tunnel, a superhero who'd suffered multiple slash wounds two weeks ago. Quickly the team come to recognize that each of these victims died in a way related to one of their powers, and that because of time spent apart in the maze and their own brief separation from Earth 06618, they cannot offer any airtight alibis.

A quick scan of the computer yielded some indication that someone in the American Sentinel office requested that most of these deaths not be publicized. Most of them were ruled accidents, suicides, or natural causes.

The team quickly masked any evidence of their visit and headed back to the American Sentinel studios.

The green Room where Reddit Lad and the Chan died were closed off and under guard, but it took little effort for the team to slip past. Aside from a flood of unidentified magical residue and the stench of many a superhero (mostly eau de Reddit), however, the room yielded little of interest. They were at least able to find a smartphone wedged between the couch cushions where the victims died, and among its texts were some plans for Reddit Lad to meet someone in a back alley later on. Bombshell sent a nanowasp off to stake out the meeting and left another behind in the green room to monitor.

Having done as much investigating as they could immediately, the team returned to Kid Titan's apartment...only to get ambushed at the door by a bunch of spider automatons throwing energy blasts. Rip Tide quickly coated several of his teammates in icy armor, while they sprung into action, hacking, hogtying, and smashing the bots. An EMP pulse from one briefly disrupted Bombshell's swarm coherency, but several good punches and slams decimated the automatons' ranks, and Rosie was able to tame two to serve as her mounts. Lady Veil made it into the bedroom just in time to see the portal that disgorged their unwelcome visitors close; any remaining bots collapsed or disappeared.

Kid Titan was understandably shaken that such an attack could be set off in his sanctum, and that the powers behind it were so amorphous that he couldn't easily pinpoint the perpetrator.

Alpha Squad had little time to contimplate the intrusion, however, since a knock suddenly heralded another unexpected guest: Kid Titan's former Radicals teammate, Blue Streak, come to talk to her friend following her note.

Episode 6: A Real Losing Streak

A murderous conspiracy is afoot at American Sentinel, and it's up the The Alpha Squad to solve it -- before they're next!

Summary:

At Kid Titan's office, Hashtag Hashtag arrived just as Alpha Squad were sitting down to talk with Blue Streak, a solidly built, middle aged, black woman with super speed and some sort of special status within the police force. She states that while she has found some evidence that a few officers are "on the take", there doesn't seem to be a lot of clarity about w hat's going on with the rash of suspicious superhero deaths. The team were fairly certain that every eliminated contestant from American Sentinel had died under strange circumstances shortly after leaving the show; Blue Streak knew of 9 more mysterious deaths in the last year: the Ruby Gladiator, who fell on her own sword; Swamp Boy, who drowned despite not needing to breathe; the Leaping Lizard, killed in a hit-and-run; Ms. Matchbox, the victim of spontaneous combustion; Lady Blackbird and Lady Blackbeard, found with their heads in ovens while baking; Teatime, who apparently drank himself to death; Captain Amazingpants, suffocated by glitter; and Captain Kumquat, who suffered an anaphylactic reaction to citrus. Blue Streak noted that up until Reddit Lad and the Chan she had little concrete evidence of murder.

Having finished catching up on the murders, the team engaged in a brief study of the spider bots that attacked them; the machines don't yield much, but are owned by the Broadcasting company that runs American Sentinel and Armor Guy owns the patent for their design.

As they completed their investigation, a call came in from Dr. Migraine, former Sentinel retired after the day of Reckoning. Migraine apologized for the poor treatment Kid Titan had received on a recent TV segment, and requested as a favor, that Alpha Squad return to the show, apparently continuing, to participate in a new scenario the producers have cooked up. The team are concerned about potential traps, but reluctantly agree.

When the team arrive for filming, the producers explain the scenario: unnamed villains have invaded a chemical plant and taken the workers hostage; the team is tasked with the rescue mission, competing for best save against the Triple Double, a new team composed of the two remaining Chans and the Three Pigs. Bombshells wasps scouted ahead while Lady Veil used her teleportation abilities to move the team inside the plant's break room. The spot she chose placed then in amongst about 30 spiderbots, and Harvey was a little too distracted by the nearby food court to help, but the bots were all surprised by the arrival and didn't respond immediately. A series of metapod glitches caused a bit of confusion (apparently Jebediah can be distracted by his own body, if that body belongs to Lady Veil), And the spiderbots demonstrated a new ability to stack themselves up like an 8 legged voltron, but our heroes still managed to hold their own with relatively little damage and a lot of short circuits. In the midst of this fight, however, two supervillains emerged from behind a chemical vat and attempt to suck all sorts of life force out of our heroes.

Some quick thinking on Hex's part turned the spiderbots into her army of actual spider minions for Hex, and one of the two villains, DessiKate the mummy, couldn't withstand the sudden flurry of blows that greeted her. When screams started coming from outside, even the remaining supervillain, a child called Chatterbox, seemed rattled, and the team left the plant without her...just in time to see a monstrous 50' Grey Squirrel face off against the Triple Double. It grabbed and beheaded one of the Chans, then vaporized a Pig.

Springing into action, the team hurried to neutralize the threat. A surge of water freezing around its nether region slowed it down. One of Aquamarine's special seductions severely distracts it, despite the species barrier. Hex at least cast a spell, and shrank Squirrel Nutkin down to an entirely manageable size. Apparently the squirrel was intended as a challenge for the show, but broke free (or was released) and began wreaking havoc.

Episode 7: Johnny B. Good-ish?

Approached by an old foe seeking help, the Alpha Squad must decide how much risk to take in search of the truth.

Summary:

In the aftermath of the most recent attack, the police were trying to determine how and why exactly the squirrel got loose. For once, Alpha Squad were not implicated. The most recent news had the show suspended pending investigations and street protests launched against the show and the superhero community in general, so the team had returned to Kid Titan's office to recuperate.

The team was understandably curious that in the fight, Kid Titan had manifested abilities he'd never used before. And so, reluctantly, Kid Titan explained about the intergalactic legacy that is the Titan Matrix, and his suspicions about his uncle having felt his death and then seeing him alive again. He was understandably also concerned that the rest of the intergalactic Titan Force might be heading their way and might consider Kid Titan nothing but a common breaker of intergalactic law, but felt secure that they probably wouldn't arrive too soon.

Kid Titan noticed then that he had a voicemail from Dr. Migraine; in it, Migraine apologized profusely and expressed great regret for what had happened, claiming that "All I ever wanted was peace." Before they could respond to that voicemail, the team are again interrupted, this time by the arrival of Johnny Legion, carrying the body of one of his duplicates and clearly panicked. Rosie had just enough of awareness of danger to warn everyone to duck before bullets stream through the window, murdering the standing Johnny Legion.

The team finds itself facing a new threat while trying to protect an old ally: King Teddy Roosevelt is ready for war, and they have no choice but to join him. Note: the GM breaks more easily and dramatically when he's tired.

Summary:

Under attack from a strange monster made of folk, the team must jump back into action quickly and rethink their strategies; touching the monster seemed to cause sickness, and thrown weapons passed through it unharmed. Nothing seemed to have much effect until Gatling threw some methane and fire at it. In the midst of the fight, however, the monster revealed itself as a middle aged man, accosted the team for participating in the Project...

...And then was lost, as Crash, Jebidiah, and and Jenika were sucked back into their metapods. They were unharmed, but Marcus' metapod was smoking, which the technicians explained only as "unforseen consequences" of a "technical glitch" and refused to discuss further. In Marcus' place, the Project team saw fit to send Rosie Harvin to join the team again, and they were immediately re-injected back into the Kingdom of Yosemite.

When they returned to their avatars, the team found themselves by the side of the lake, under a crescent moon in late autumn. Most of the team were unchanged, but Johnny unexpectedly appeared to be in his 80's, and Rosie inhabited the Body of one Annie Oakley. King Teddy was in mid speech, attempting to rally the troops. He and Teddy's cousin Franklin finished their speeches, and the team quickly discern that their team are intending an amphibious assault on Lake Tahoe, take down a target known as A.C., and attack a hydroelectric dam there. The war continued--a conflict known variously as The War Between the Sides of the States, The War of Eastern Aggression, and the American Civil War: Electric Bugaloo.

The team begin the process of stealthily sneaking into the enemy camp, but inexplicably paused when Annie and Teddy insisted on a shooting contest. Emily was able to scout ahead more quietly while Gatling babysat the team, at least,

Episode 40: Sequelibrium: Back In The Saddle Again (Masters Of The Metaverse LIVE From ZOE Con) | Season Two Finale

The battle for Colbie, OH rages on while the team back on Xerates' Island find themselves confronted with an old friend turned foe. The Arena reveals its greatest secret yet and things will never be the same.

Summary:

Thomas, Nathan, Aquamarine, and Rosie have been sent into a strange new metaverse known as The Arena. According to the ancient Spartan, Xerates, this is a mission specific world that must be completed before the pilots can move on to the world of caged gods and save the world.

Inside the Arena it’s the 1990s in Colbie, OH and movies are taking over the town. Each pilot’s avatar becomes possessed by a movie character which take control at random moments depending on how much damage they just took. Nazis and dinosaurs are invading and that’s not even the strangest thing that’s happening.

Meanwhile, back on Xerates Island, Nick, Jenika, and Crash are waiting for the rest of the team to return when there is a literal knock on the door…or rather several concussive blasts. Opening the door they are shocked to find that it is a tactical team from the Program, complete with pilots with powers, lead by none other than Jebidiah Lexington. He attempts to discover the whereabouts of the rest of the team, specifically Thomas, before Nick finally convinces Crash to stop talking. Left with no other choice, Jebidiah readies his team to attack…and stands up from his wheelchair.

The island suddenly lurches and waters rush in. The island is sinking, apparently, and taking everyone with it. A wave sweeps Jenika off her feet, even though she is in swarm form, and knocks her into a nearby meta pillar. As she is launched into The Arena, Nathan is ejected back into the real world. Once inside Jenika is surprised to find that the avatar Nathan was in, the one she is know inhabiting, fades away leaving her real self behind. Aquamarine’s avatar also drops away and the two women stare in shock at a large pink dome in the distance. A barren wasteland surrounds them and on a sign…four little worlds. “Welcome to Sentinel City"

The group continues walking and soon encounters a large group of mutant bat creatures which they battle and defeats through...various means. They find the remains of Mount Rushmore and a metal door which leads into a fallout shelter filled with huge cockroaches.

Inside a vault deep in The Arena, the pilots come face to face with some dark truths about the world as they knew it...and The End Of Everything.

Summary:
Deep inside the newly discovered vault, the team of pilots uncovers a journal entitled, "The End Of Everything: A Life Lived". It details a great pandemic that swept across America, killing nearly everyone. It speaks of a mysterious "she" who tried to defeat death by creating life unending. Further along they find the remnants of a chapel dedicated to someone or something who looks like they are in swarm form...and then the zombies wake up. Fleeing from the shambling masses, Rosie is bit. The team rushes out to the tram station, and powering up the car, escape the vault and it's undead horrors. Back outside in the wasteland that is The Arena, the are met by a flying scavenger named Tony. He agrees to take them safely to the city on stilts in exchange for George The Slushie Machine. It seems that George is quite valuable to "the ones on high" who seek out such items because they "want to remember". That night, Rosie locks herself in her cabin and begins committing as much of her knowledge about the metaverse to the journal in case she becomes a zombie, otherwise known as one of "The Lost". Her work is interrupted by the arrival of air pirates who attack Tony's ship. The team meets on the deck to combat the salvo as best they can...which is when Jenika goes into swarm form. Rosie feels a pain in her arm and looks down in time to see a string of nanowasps streak out of her wound and head off toward Jenika. Crash uncovers a pair of rocket boots and uses them to take down the lead ship, causing the rest of the pirates to flee. Jenika re-materializes on the deck as the pursuing swarm of zombie nanos falls to the ground, scattering helplessly along its surface.

Summary:
The pilots are thrilled to see Thomas again, especially when he reveals that he has a plan to help them get back home. They simply need to find a way inside Sentinel City and travel to Joe's Diner. But how can they get inside with the dome still in place? Thomas also reveals that the wasteland they are currently in is in fact Earth 668, but 400 years in the future. Meanwhile, back inside Sentinel City, Bombshell comes to in Dr. Migraine's prison and manages to wake up Lady Veil. Together, they begin fighting Riptide and Dr. Migraine...while using an unconscious Butch as a blunt object. Inside the dream world, Hex and Butch find themselves up against Malpractice, Inc., a group of old foes who are hell bent on their destruction. From the heavens, Dr. Migraine monologues about how Butch should have just been happy and stopped fighting. Fed up with this charade, Butch kills Code Red and proceeds to attack the rest of the group while Hex destroys Candy Striper. Back in the real world, Bombshell and Lady Veil work together to summon Titan. Titan is more than happy to fight evil, once he has control of his own body. Shrugging off the various attempts at mind control, Titan punches Dr. Migraine into the wall...shattering the illusion world and waking everyone up, including Riptide. The group flees the prison and returns to Molly's house where they learn some startling news. Dr. Migraine has been resetting time and everyone's memories for over 400 years. Stunned, the group hurries to the home of Balthazar the Black in an effort to uncover the power source behind the dome. There they find the decayed corpse of Titan, hooked up to various wires and computers. As Hex moves to unplug him, Blue Streak, under the control of Dr. Migraine, appears and warns her not to do anything. Dr. Migraine is cracking up but he still believes he is doing the right thing. He requests that the group stands down and lets him reset again. They refuse and as Butch attempts to overcharge the computers holding Titan, Hex uses her magic to see into the past...revealing what really happened to Titan the day he died on Mount Rushmore. Back in the wastelands, the pilots have arrived outside of Sentinel City. Crash leaps off the airship in an attempt to punch the dome...which suddenly flickers and disappears. Emerging from inside the Sentinel City Bank, he rejoins the others as they enter Joe’s Diner.

Back To Realities

Episode 45: Project: Metabork

Having found a way back home, the pilots are joined by Nick and learn some disturbing news about The Program. They travel to a world of joy that has been broken by other pilots...or would that be borken?

Summary:
Inside Joe's Diner, the pilots decide on their next move while Crash suggests going back out into Sentinel City to find their former avatars. He's concerned that they will be scared due to the dome coming down but soon remembers that Joe's only lets you go where you need to go, not where you want to. Rosie decides to remain in Joe's Diner for the time being, to catch up on some rest and food, and the others head out the door and find themselves in New York City. They're home! They are met by Thomas, who directs them to a Founders safe house nearby. Inside, they find Nick who has been waiting for them...and slowly decomposing in the new body/corpse he's taken over. The group is informed about the existence of a new tool used by The Program...Project: Metaverse. There are around three hundred people in various stages of training and an inside informant for The Founders believes that they are planning to send these people after the original group of pilots. Climbing into pods, the team is sent back to a world that was previously visited by members of Project: Metaverse and damaged by them. They are tasked by The Founders to right any wrongs they find and heal the metaverse if possible. Once inside, the pilots find themselves in the land of Borks and set out to discover what terrible tragedy occurred. They discover the former Knights Of Borkdom and learn the awful truth. Meanwhile, Crash is disturbed by the actions of not only the pilots from Project: Metaverse, but his own team as well. He feels that they are making this world and avatars worse instead of better...that they are making them as broken as they are. Thomas appears and alerts them that there is a possibility that by tracking and gathering data on several different avatars inhabited by the members of Project: Metaverse, they could conceivably track the pilots and uncover their location. Jenika realizes that this also holds true for them and it might be something that The Program is already doing. The team brings all the former Knights Of Borkdom together and using the powers of Princess Ricci and Hex Destiny, thanks to Rosie who returns briefly to help, they are able to turn back time and undo the damage done to this world. As they prepare to leave the land of the Borks, many questions still remain. Who are the members of Project: Metaverse? Why is The Program training three hundred people to track down four? What world will they end up in next?

Episode 46: Objects In Mirror...

Flashing back several months in the past, Nick attempts to reunite with his missing teammates after the events on Xerates Island. Along the way he learns some disturbing information about a possible mole in the group and something called Project: Metaverse...

Summary:
Flashing back several months, we join Nick who is searching for his missing friends. After Xerates' island sank, Nick hid inside the mind of Jebediah Lexington and managed to escape. Commandeering a new body he found his way back to The Founders, only to be met with a chilly response. Frustrated with their lack of trust and cooperation, Nick slipped his leash and went on the run. He began receiving mysterious text messages on a burner phone that suddenly appeared, messages from an anonymous source who wants to help him recover his missing team. He enters a coffee shop and mets two men, Patric and Bruno. Patric is a demolitions expert while Bruno is ex-military/spec ops...and seems vaguely familiar to Nick. These men have been hired to help him rescue his friends and the three set off to a Program safe house that Nick found in Jeb's memories. Arriving at the safe house, Nick uncovers the armory which they raid. At dawn, pulling over to a roadside diner for breakfast, Nick and the others make plans. It isn't long, however, before several familiar black SUVs pull into the parking lot. The trio makes a run for it and manages to pull out in front of them. Back on the road, the men are soon being followed by several black SUVs which they manages to evade for a time before they hear the sound of approaching helicopters. Nick commandeers one of the pilots and causes the chopper to crash into its oncoming backup. Patric and Bruno are stunned as the men continue their game of cat and mouse. Nick has received a message on his phone saying that the pilots will arrive in one week's time in New York City, so the group heads there. Arriving in the city, they get the address of a Founder's safe house. Approaching the front door, they hear the sounds of muffled gun fire and discover agents from The Program and The Founders in a protracted gun fight. Nick, Patric, and Bruno intervene and help the Founder's agents to escape, retrieving a thumb drive from one of them first. Nick then questions the renaming Program agent who reveals the existence of something called Project: Metaverse. Patric fills Nick in on the details, as well as pulling up information about the missing pilots who all went missing at the same time, about a year and a half ago. It is also discovered that pilots from Project: Metaverse have connections back to the original pilots. Wyatt Maxwell was in the same prison that Jenika worked in, Maddox McPhernon worked security for Aquamarine, and Brony was the rival of Crash. Only Andi Jaymes has limited available information, almost like someone made sure it couldn't be found. The thumb drive they obtained reveals a report from Tessa to the Founders, stating that her informant TOM has come across information that either Rosie, Jenika, Aquamarine, Thomas, Crash, or Nick are compromised and actually working for The Program. Nick struggles to comprehend all this when he has a flash of memory. Standing in a room with a drink and a cigar, talking to a much younger Jebediah who says "So you see Mr. Krieger, this is exactly what we need to do." His phone buzzes with a grainy picture of Rosie standing with Nick in Times Square, dated 26 hours ago. After some research they discover that another Nick Krieger has a hotel room downtown. Arriving outside the hotel, Nick convinces Patric to rig him to explode just in case...as a cab pulls up and another Nick gets out and goes into the hotel. A few minutes later, several black SUVs pull up and a tactical team enters the building. Nick approaches the front dest and obtains a room key, while also using the courtesy phone to call the hotel room and warn the other Nick of the impending attack. Nick, Patric, and Bruno take the stairs and make their way up, fighting off Program goons. They make it to the hallway outside Nick's room and the door opens, revealing a second Nick who immediately starts to flee. As Patric and Bruno attempt to deal with the Program team, Nick jumps into other Nick's mind to try and convince him to come with them. Nick refuses, insisting that it's all a Program or Founders trick. He tells Nick to meet him at the mountain with faces if he really wants to learn more, and then leaps out of his body. Nick is left to flee with Patric and Bruno as emergency services close in. His phone buzzes once more when a text from the anonymous number. "Pilots arrive tomorrow. One is compromised, trust no one."

The Principle Of Non-Attachment by Paxamo


Episode 47: ...Are Closer Than They Appear

Several weeks after Nick confronted other Nick, Bruno is on a new job from his anonymous contact. This time he's paired up with John Stone, a man looking for his brother who is involved with Project: Metaverse, and Cole, a British hacker with connections to Nick Krieger.

Summary:

Weeks have passed since the events in New York City. Nick has gone off somewhere in an effort to meet his other self, Patric has disappeared on his own mission, and Bruno is doing jobs for an anonymous texter. His latest one has him teaming up with a British gentleman by the name of Cole in order to help someone named John Stone. John has recently gone AWOL from The Founders after discovering that his brother Eli is taking part in Project: Metaverse. Unwilling to leave him in the hands of The Program, and know that The Founders won't intervene, John has been scouting the island where the Project: Metaverse facility is housed for several weeks. His plan is simple, get in, get Eli, get out. This is complicated however when the trio receive intel that The Program is beefing up security on the island and a new shipment of fifty guards is expected any day. The men decide to take a chance and join the security team, replacing three other members who Bruno manages to convince/blackmail into staying home. Before heading out, they procure disguises and fake IDs before boarding the ferry over to the island. While onboard, they notice that there is very little scrutiny given to the passengers. No metal detectors, no pat downs, nothing. It's almost like they don't care what you bring to the island as they don't expect that you will ever leave it. John, Bruno, and Cole also realize as they talk that they all know a man named Nick Krieger. Cole has been talking on the phone a Nick Krieger and doing jobs with him for an anonymous source for the better part of three years. John remembers Nick from his time with The Founders and cannot believe that he would be working for The Program or anyone else. And Bruno remembers a ranking officer in the army who was involved in dark ops...back in the Vietnam War. And that's not all...Bruno also recalls that Nick Krieger was working with a young colonel by the name of Jebediah Lexington. Upon reaching their destination, the three men are placed on a security detail and begin patrolling the island while under strict instructions to avoid the main facility at all costs. So, of course as the sun sets they head to the main facility. Bruno, Cole, and John are trying to work out the best way to get past the woman behind the desk and her security detail when a sudden noise grabs their attention. Within minutes the island is being assaulted from all sides by members of The Founders. Using the chaos to their advantage, the group finds a way into the main facility and to the secret floors below. Reaching the main server point, Cole hacks into the system and begins downloading terabytes of information into his hard drive. Meanwhile, John has located his brother...just in time for security forces from The Program to find them. A fire fight breaks out and the trio manages to escape with minimal damage. They are about to head out to extract John's brother when the doors fly open and a man wearing the nametag "Henrich" floats into the room and begins to lay waste to their attacks. Little seems to affect him and it soon becomes clear that Henrich is powered by something more than normal strength. Cole looks at his computer screen and notes that Henrich is the top player in Project: Metaverse, alone with no other team members. Thanks to some trick shooting and grenades they manage to wound Henrich enough to allow them to escape. Cole grabs his hard drive, and he and Bruno head to the roof having received a radio signal from Patric, who flies in with his newly transformed Winnebago. John heads off in search of his brother and is left behind as Patric takes off, the battle on the Project: Metaverse island raging on.

Galaxy Tails

Episode 48: The Ties That Bind

Bruno is on a new mission to save the son of his old Colonel...Crash Jaxun. Intercepting Thomas, Crash, and Aquamarine in NYC, Bruno must face off against Program Tactial Squads all while trying to find out what happened to his missing granddaughter. New information comes to light and secrets are uncovered, and the pilots have to save the brother of a member of Project: Metaverse.

Summary:

Bruno Hamilton races toward New York City...or as close to racing as he gets. He has been told by his anonymous source that the son of his old friend, Colonel Jaxun, is in danger and needs to be rescued. Careening to a stop next to them, Bruno orders Aquamarine and Crash to get into his car. They do so and Bruno heads off, Program assassins in hot pursuit. They are soon joined by Thomas, much to Bruno's confusion, and the team manages to fight off their attackers through skills that don't make much sense to Bruno. After switching cars, they have a chance to regroup and Bruno fills them in on what he knows. He has been sent to retrieve Crash because he was told that the survival of Colonel Jaxun's son is imperative to the survival of his missing granddaughter...who is also somehow connected to the Metaverse. Once Crash is safe, Bruno is to lead them on a rescue mission to save the "McPhernon boy" from The Program. He also informs them about the existence of multiple Nicks, Project: Metaverse, and the events of the last several weeks (i.e. death, murder, destruction, and Henrich). Further, Bruno has just remembered that the man they saw in the Project: Metaverse facility, the one with the nametag "Henrich", is the spitting image of the Nick Krieger that he knew in Vietnam. That Nick Krieger was working with Jebediah Lexington, a CIA spook. Bruno was working with Colonel Jaxun, Crash and Tessa's father, someone who he still believes is alive. Crash is both surprised and excited by this as he had been under the impression that his father was dead, a fact made doubly confusing a few weeks ago when he received word from Tessa that she was going out in search of their father. Aquamarine and Thomas are very disturbed but the news about Nick and Project: Metaverse but further conversation is put on hold as they reach the area where the "McPhernon boy" is being held. It looks like they are too late, as a convoy of black SUVs is seen leaving the area. Thomas stays behind to check out the surrounding warehouses while the others chase after the retreating vehicles. Inside a warehouse, Thomas finds a note on the back of an old comic book page. "I miss you Maddie..." Thomas returns to the others and relays what he has found. This triggers Aquamarine who remembers that she had a bodyguard by the name of Maddox McPhernon who had a special brother named Mac. Finally catching up to the convoy, the pilots attack and manage to secure Mac through methods varying from action movie style weapons play to unexpected seduction. Mac is initially frightened of the newcomers but eventually warms up to Crash and Aquamarine. They load into their car and speed off just in time for more Program assassins to swoop in. Fighting off SUVs and helicopters, our team makes it to the border and heads into Canada. There they are lead to a garage with a large Winnebago inside. As Bruno greets Opal and Patric, the others observe that the camper contains Jenika...and metapods.

Dear Bruno by Paxamo


Episode 49: Galaxy Tails; Episode One | Outfoxed

The team is reunited and learns some new information about the Metaverse and the strange things that are happening. Leaping into a new metaverse, they find themselves in the bodies of cartoon creatures who must save the galaxy!

Summary:

Reunited with Jenika, Thomas, Crash, and Aquamarine head off into Canada with Bruno and his sentient winnebago. As they travel, they learn that Patric obtained not only plans for metapods from an anonymous source, but a thumb drive as well. This thumb drive can only be opened by Thomas, who does so, revealing a letter from none other than TOM. TOM asks Thomas for help in his efforts to save the metaverse, telling him that a great disaster is coming and the only way to stop it is to collect various anomalies throughout the metaverse. The rest of the team discuss this information and question Patric further about his anonymous source. Patric informs them about Project: Metaverse, the assault on the island facility, and the involvement of Cole. Crash, upon hearing this name, has a very visceral reaction but won't say much more than that Cole is a "bad person". Thomas is very concerned about the existence of TOM and of Project: Metaverse and is not convinced that that they are being asked to do is in their best interest. The others insist that the only way to find out is to get into the pods and travel to the next metaverse. Thomas finally agrees and gets in, but not before setting a search running on any information about TOM, Project: Metaverse, and Jebediah Lexington. Leaping into the metaverse, the team finds themselves in the anthropomorphic bodies of Captain Kitt Foxman and his crew. They seem to be part of a show called "Galaxy Tails", complete with narrator and commercial breaks. In fact during the commercial breaks, the pilots are unable to access the thoughts and memories of their avatars and have to wait for the show to start again before they can connect again. In the course of their adventures, the Galaxy Tails crew encounters Admiral Sliss of the Chameleon Empire, as well as a strange object, the metal, non animated logo of Titan. They safely retrieve the logo and defeat Admiral Sliss, returning to Mamalon Prime for a well deserved break. Their rest is interrupted by terrible news! The Young Adult Non Genetically Modified Turtle Ninjas have stolen the logo and disappeared! Who can stop them? Clearly, only Capt Kitt Foxman and his intrepid crew!

Episode 50: Galaxy Tails; Episode Two | Fox Trap

The Galaxy Tails crew set out to retrieve the missing object from the clutches of the Chameleon Empire! They soon discover that all is not what is seems and Kitt begins to undergo a mysterious transformation...

Summary:

The intrepid crew of Galaxy Tails receives word from the Planet Dojo about a great martial arts competition. Sojourn is tasked with choosing an apprentice via any method she chooses. She does so thanks to the power of Mac and Cheese, video games, and missing stuffies. Kitt is chosen as the apprentice, much to Presto's chagrin, and the crew finally arrives on Planet Dojo. Once there, it isn't long before the crew finds themselves in a fight with the Non Genetically Modified Young Adult Turtle Ninjas. The two sides are fairly evenly matched and the fight is eventually broken up by the local mole rat militia. During the welcome dinner, the team takes their leave in an effort to track down the missing object which is believed to be somewhere on the planet. The tracker devised by Professor North eventually lead them into the sewers where they once again are confronted by the Turtle Ninjas. In the midst of the fight several canisters of knock out gas are thrown onto the scene and the avatars pass out, just in time for a commercial break. The team awakens on their way into a Chameleon Empire dungeon in the arms of the monitor lizard soldiers. Kitt Foxman expected this all along and had a plan...so everyone is only pretending to be asleep and Kitt launches into an attack, joined shortly by the rest of his team. The monitor lizard guards are soon replaced by two extremely large alligators. These humungous lizards are no match for Kitt Foxman and his crew naturally and the fight soon turns in their favor as the object is finally located nearby. However, in the course of the conflict, the containment shield has been damaged and a red glow is beginning to emit from the mysterious object. Kitt Foxman picks it up and the crew rush to their ship to make a hasty escape. Once back aboard their vessel, Kitt is surprised to find that his paws are now furry and no longer made of paint. In fact, he is able to wipe the paint off of the walls nearby, exposing the lack of atmosphere outside. Presto hits the turbo as the crew races off...with Admiral Sliss on their heels. All seems lost as the crew flies into an asteroid shield. Presto sheds to armadillo shell as the ship goes full possum for a final desperate burst of speed. It seems like they are about to escape from their pursuers when a giant space squid looms into view in front of them...

Episode 51: Galaxy Tails; Episode Three | The End? | Season Three Finale

It's a race against time as Kitt realizes that his "reality based" attributes are destroying the animated world of Galaxy Tails! The truth behind the mysterious object is revealed and the world is forever changed...

Summary:

Fred the Giant Space Squid opens his mouth and gently releases the Armadillo, unharmed. Kitt thanks his friend and poker buddy for helping them, and requests that Fred covers their escape with some space ink. Fred obliges and the crew race off back to the Planet Dojo. While North and Presto attempt to discover more information about the mysterious object, Kitt and Sojourn get down to business to defeat the other Tai Kwon Slow apprentices at the tournament. As they travel, Kitt becomes more and more confused and disillusioned with his animated existence...as his body becomes more and more real. Suddenly everything goes blue and a woman's voice comes from nowhere saying "We are currently experiencing technical difficulties. Please contact your service provider for more information." The blue fades and the Armadillo arrives on Planet Dojo. Kitt fights the other apprentices with increasingly disturbing results. Wherever his real parts touch, the animated world is torn apart. The crowd is also being impacted as they are becoming more confused with each passing moment, as are Sojourn, Presto, and North. A great tear opens up in the world and The Destroyer, a giant space worm (yes, a space worm), crashes through the scene. North convinces Presto to fly the ship back to rescue Kits and Sojourn...just in time for him to fly it directly into a large hole that Kitt just created with his real hands. Trapped under the space worm, North deploys the tail spear and Presto skewers the worm, rescuing Kitt. Sojourn is pulled from the mouth of the worm by Kitt, and the crew races off as a new hole opens up and mosquito men begin pouring out. Thomas and Jenika move away from their avatars and relay to the others that the item is a part of the Titan Matrix. It bears the logo of Kid Titan and it is currently empty. What's worse? The crack was there well before the Galaxy Tails crew ever found it. Which means that someone else has part of the Titan Matrix aside from Kitt, who is now completely real except for his head. Crash realizes that Admiral Sliss must have the other half and the Armadillo heads off for their final confrontation. Inside the hangar of the Chameleon Empire vessel, Admiral Sliss is revealed to be completely real, except for his tail. A fight breaks out and as Thomas uses the weapons on the smaller space craft to annihilate the other Chameleon Empire officers, Sliss uses his ultra vision on Kitt. When the smoke clear, Kitt is still there but he is now clothed in pieces of Kid Titan's old costume. Crash devises a plan to make Admiral Sliss tell them how he got his power in the first place and convinces the others to play dead. Sliss monologues and tells them everything, which gives Crash an opening. He tells Sliss that he can't have the true power of the Titan Matrix unless he activates it and takes the oath. Sliss begins to do so but Crash interrupts him saying "I accept!" The power of the Titan Matrix flows into Crash and destroys Sliss. Reeling from these developments, the others are stunned when Crash tells them his plan for saving all of Mammalon Prime. He divides the Titan Matrix among them all and using their combined powers of a dome is created to keep all the worlds of Mammalon Prime safe. Disturbed by what has happened and what it means for the future of their time in the Metaverse, the pilots return to the real world. Crash is sleeping soundly while Thomas is nowhere to be seen. Bruno lies on a bed nearby, badly wounded. Nick lays on another bed, awake and in a new body. And somewhere between this world and the Metaverse Thomas meets a man in a Hawaiian shirt...
