I really don’t like sewers.

It’s not because of the cramped spaces, though I think that is Ji-Woo’s main objection (claustrophobia is not funny). It’s more for the fact that it smells and evil undead creatures seem to live in them.

After taking out the zombie pen, we headed on and found that we were walking in circles. It seemed that whoever or whatever is leading this zombie invasion had a few traps set up so we couldn’t find their lair. Too bad for them that we have people who are way smarter than that.

After the strange circles, there were some gas mains that were broken and leaking. Ji-Woo was freaking out. I feel really sorry for her. I wish there was something I could do to help. Andy helped, though, by helping her through. I was able to hold my breath most of the way, but Magnus had offered me his whisky soaked rag and that got me all the way through. Magnus then took Zane’s flask of water and sealed the leaks with ice. Rather ingenious that was. I was impressed.

The next trap was a bunch of live electrical wires in a room with standing water. Ji-Woo flew me over. I took great interest in her wings and how they worked. The tattoos are really well done. I actually wonder if she would let me tattoo her. Her skin is perfect for that. Zane walked across the ceiling to get past. Andy flew and Ji-Woo carried Nemi and Magnus. She seemed a bit tired after getting Magnus over, but he is rather, um, large.

One more trap, a room full of ice. Andy slid across on his stomach like a penguin. He is absolutely insane sometimes, but I do appreciate his company. To Magnus, this was nothing. But that is the way of the Aesir. Ji-Woo’s wings grew brittle as she flew across. I was worried about her and checked to make sure there were no issues with the tattoos.

We finally came to a door, a large, steel door. It was locked and I was just going to pull it off, but Zane got in there and unlocked it before I could let anyone know that was my intention. We realized this was quite obviously the end of the line. Ji-Woo looked rather relieved, understandably.

Zane scouted out the area and found a way to where the mastermind was holed up where we only had to sneak past a few zombies. Amusingly, it had a huge map with pins on it pointing out places they had seen us. There were a couple of aptegangers, some regular zombies and some toughened zombies. Then there was this big, frosty thing.

We headed out and snuck up to the room. Busting through the door, we attacked as one. Magnus worked on the big guy since his cold wouldn’t affect him. I concentrated on all the zombies first. With combined attacks from all of us, we were able to finally get them all taken down, including the litch. That’s what the big guy was. Never knew those actually existed until now. And it had to be burned in order for it to die. Well, we’re going to take a break, get our acts together and get the hell out of here.

I may have made an error.

Hooking up with Hermione may not have been the best idea I’ve ever had. I think she was expecting it to be more. I just want to be her friend. With benefits, I guess. Fuck, I’m just lonely. I miss my friends. I miss my studio.

I’m certainly not making friends easily. Magnus cares only for himself, but I probably should be used to that by now. Musicians seem to only care about themselves. I must really stop focusing on music. I need to focus on myself and the destruction of the titans.

Andy seems to be worried about me. I told him I was fine. I am fine. I’m most comfortable when we’re out killing things. I suppose I take after my mother with that. I don’t like to be idle. That’s why I went with Andy back to the theater to warn the ghost there that there are trolls about. They seemed grateful for the information, but very reluctant to leave.

We headed back to the caves which are quickly becoming our home base because of a few people. Granted, it is the safest place right now. We decided to head out to the sewers to see if we can track down these zombies that spotted Ji-Woo. She had been out lazing on the roof of one of the apartment buildings in town and saw them. They noticed her, too. She was injured internally somehow.

The sewers are more than just where the muck goes. Berlin is sitting in a swamp. The sewer keeps the water flowing so the city doesn’t flood. We wandered along and Ji-Woo could hear something ahead. Zane went to scout it out and found an electric fenced in pen full of zombies. Luckily Magnus had some grenades and even luckier, I am proficient at throwing weapons.

I tossed two grenades over the fence where it would get most of them and the blast would overlap and hopefully kill most of them. That was a brilliant idea, because it took out forty nine of the sixty zombies. Yes, I am that good. We then worked on the rest. I was actually hit, which was surprising, but thankfully Nemi had bolstered my skin, so it was barely a scratch.

There is more sewer to go. Hopefully we will find the rest of these zombies, including the really big ones, and get this over with sooner rather than later.

Trolls.

That is what landed on the top of the metro car we were in. They tore open the roof and I jumped up to engage one. There were four smaller and one really large one. I didn’t think I could do much against the large one, so I concentrated on a smaller one. It took a couple of swipes, but I took it down along with the other one that stayed. The others worked on the ones that jumped down. When they all went down, I looked to see if we took any casualties and saw Magnus lying on the floor. The man is nearly seven feet tall and covered in muscles, yet a troll takes him down. Yeah, whatever.

Zane and Nemi immediately tended to Magnus. I just put my headphones in and listened to my music while sitting on the back of one of the seats. For some odd reason, Ji-Woo decided that I was worried about Magnus. I guess she thinks I still have interest even though I’ve stopped staring at him. I’m over the initial shock and now realize exactly who he is, which is a typical, arrogant rock star.

So we take Sari home in hopes of finding her brother, which we don’t. We do find a lot of zombies. We mow through them, kinda. I mean, when we had to go down in the workroom, which was made for dwarves, it was a bit cramped. For all of us. Especially Magnus. I wanted to laugh at his awkwardness, but he had now acquired a chainsaw, so I kept my mouth closed.

Since we have no clue of where Bori may have gone, we head into a swamp to talk to a friendly troll who may have some information about a troll wife who might be around. He didn’t know anything, except for the creatures that attacked him in the swamp that were new. He does have a contact that he’s going to talk to and see if he can find anything out about the troll wife.

Ji-Woo decides that maybe she should just drink a bit of absinth and consult her little coin things. Well, why didn’t we do this before going out into the swamp? She found that Bori was back in the maintenance tunnels of the metro. Sari said he has a train that he put a dragon’s skull on the front and wings on the side and he’s trying to figure out how to make it fly. So that’s where we find him, exactly as she said.

We take the dwarves back to the caves to keep them safe with the girls. We’re going to stay here overnight. Ji-Woo and Magnus sneak off, of course. I feel like I’m surrounded by horny teenagers, because I know for a fact that Andy is one. Or at least he acts like one. At least I can take his actions. I’m not so sure about the others. I’m still working them out and how they fit into the final plan.

I’ve discovered that I really like fighting. I never realized it before. I never got into fights. Well, not until Mother activated my powers. Now I seem to fight all the time, against things I never imagined were real. My desire to continue fighting led me to find the underground fight clubs in Berlin. I think they were a little reluctant to let me in at first, but after I proved myself in my first fight, they didn’t pull any punches.

That is what I’ve been doing pretty much for the last week. That and talking with Calypso and Hermione. I’ve also joined Ji-Woo at a few clubs. Sometimes I’d go to the club then escape and hit the fight club. Tonight we’re at a club called Berghain. It was a power station before the Berlin Wall was taken down. Now it is this really awesome club. You can feel the music thumping in your veins no matter where you are in the club. We’re all there tonight, including Phaedra. So of course this would be the night something odd happens.

Hermione had talked me into dancing with her, which is perfectly fine. I just find the beat and go from there. While we were dancing, I noticed a lot of commotion at the front door of the club. I wasn’t sure what it was at first, but the distinct aura of death covered the area. I told Hermione to go back with her sisters while I moved to check out what was going on.

Phaedra and I arrived about the same time and brandished our swords. Phaedra looked really annoyed. As for me, I was ready for a fight. I spun my sword, attacking a group of the zombies, hoping to keep them away from the humans who were all scrambling for the exits.

I noticed Andy change his appearance to look like Michael Jackson from his video Thriller. That man is so strange. Andy, not Michael Jackson. Anyway, at one point, he came by me and gave me a little of his luck. With a smirk, I did the Thriller dance and took out two more zombies. I have heard people say that I look like a dervish when I fight. I’m not sure I looked very dervish-like with that move. It was fun, though.

We’d mowed through most of the zombies when this seven foot tall undead thing came in, making things a bit chilly. Magnus puffed up his chest and went right for it with his axe. I helped clean up the rest of the zombies then just watched Magnus take down the creature that was only a couple of inches taller than him.

Ji-Woo had taken off to follow someone, so we ran out to see if we could find her. She was being chased by some trolls, I think. They reminded me of trolls. They headed into the Metro station, so we followed and jumped on the train Ji-Woo had gone on. There were already several trolls on the train, so we had to take care of them first. It wasn’t too hard and didn’t take long.

Ji-Woo then introduced us to the young girl she’d been following. For some reason the trolls were after her and her brother. She had no idea why. Magnus said she was a dwarf. She doesn’t look much like what you think Norse dwarves look like. She looks more like what common people call a dwarf. Whatever. We’re going to protect her of course, from whatever that was that just landed and shook the entire train.

Hello, all.

This will likely be the last update for the To Every God His Day campaign.  Our group has really enjoyed playing Scion, but it's been a little more than four years now, and we're moving on to another campaign for the time being.  When and if we eventually return to the adventures of Cathy, Wendel, Hector, Maria, Lexie, T.S., and the others, I'll resume these posts.  It's been a long, strange trip, and I'm glad you've all chosen to take it with us.  Best of luck to the remaining Scion campaigns in this community!
