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 nethers slows 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.

Episode 12: Smoke On The Water

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,
