Harvest of Dust, Part 4
Holding out for some heroes!

Greetings True Believers!

What a day our heroes have had!

After stopping the mysterious Infinity Incorporated and a group from Star Labs in Africa, they race back to find that Dr. Reynolds’ sister took Don’s advice! And she didn’t go alone! Gathering her allies, they left a polite note for Dr. Gironde, then raced off … for the safety of Gotham City?

But! Trying to track them down is Blackjack, Silverwing, Shadowstar … led by a well-known thief, mercenary and criminal known as Puma?

Desperate times make for desperate measures, True Believer! And they’ve made me a believer in that!

Dr. Gironde, always one to hedge his bets and balance karma where he can, sends our heroes off in search of his errant students … the self proclaimed “Young Justice”!

Racing to the quinjet, they fly to check the highway before heading to look for the train between Metropolis and Gotham. On the way they get an emergency call from their teammate Moleculon!

Looks like their day isn’t over yet!

Harvest of Dust, Part 3
Offensively Defensive?

Greetings True Believers!

When we last left, our heroes just made it out of hidden base just in time! Right before the Infinity Incorporated Recovery Teams could close in on them!

Having withdrawn to a smuggler’s outpost, our heroes can regroup and figure out what the next steps are. There are still nine missing youngsters from the local town. Infinity Incorporated Recovery Teams out prowling for any sign of our heroes. Last, but not least, there was that alarming call from Medkit’s sister warning of an attack back home!

I wonder, which advice did Cindy take? Tell Professor Gironde? Go find the her three classmates, the ‘Three Investigators’ to get help from the envisioned attack? And why were the Infinity Incorporated Recovery Teams carrying Star Labs technology?

Now, if only our heroes had more information to go on! Lucky for them the assassins have come back and are drawing out the location of an unused airfield that may not be so unused!

But wait … isn’t that the Hammer Empire logo the assassin is drawing on the map to the airfield?

Enemy of my Enemy is a ... frenemy?

Greetings True Believers!

Last time our heroes had gotten surprise guests! A young woman and young man from across the world in Africa by way of a dimensional portal!

But that’s not all who showed up! Along with them were a team of assassins from the League of Shadows, mysterious assassins lead by the nefarious Ra’s Al Ghoul.

Now, after following them back through the portal, our heroes discovered the League has been harassing a town for new recruits. Wasting no time, the Wyldfire team backtracked the ninjas to their base of operations and infiltrated themselves inside.

But there were some surprises waiting for them inside! A minotaur meta in the garage! Escaped wolf-humans from the mysterious Infinity Incorporated dressed as ninjas!

And something tells me, they’ve only just scratched the surface of what’s to find!

But! I’d really like to know what Thunderstrike and Amethyst are going to do now that the minotaur has just stood back up?

A most unusual beginning ...

Thrilling Tales of Wonder present Wyldfire in … Harvest of Dust!

Greetings True Believers!

It’s winter in Metropolis! And with the season comes winter break at the Gironde School for the Gifted. Most students return home to visit family and friends for the holidays. Meanwhile, the staff gets a well-earned break from the rigors of teaching the minds – and heroes – of tomorrow.

This time, this isn’t a vacation for the members of Wyldfire. Now that the team has recovered Jarissa from the clutched of Mr. Sinister, its time to focus their efforts in recovering his daughter, Mirabelle. Meeting in the team’s War Room, they review information gleaned from Sinister and other sourced available to Dr. Gironde. Mirabelle is held by the hitman known only as Arcade. They have multiple possible locations of his ‘murderworld’ … but only one is authentic.

But first they might want to something about the whirling blue dimensional gate that is ripping open in the back of the room!

Terracotta Two Step!

Thrilling Tales of Wonder present … Knight’s Vigilant in … The Sculptor of Death, Part 2!

Greetings True Believers!

A riot in Chinatown! The Fall festival broken up by ninjas? But who were they? And what could they possibly want with a temple dog statue, an ancient circlet associated with insanity and death, and all the other items that were stolen?

Most important, what happened to Taki? She vanished, leaving only Kara there to help the team!

Using a map created by Moon Knight’s mini-bots, the Knight’s Vigilant race after the ninjas through the storm drains under Chinatown. Hopefully, they’ll find the ninjas and the answer to their questions!

It looks like they’re digging in to get to the bottom of things, True Believers! Lets look in and see how they’re doing!

Thrilling Tales of Wonder present … Knight’s Vigilant in … The Sculptor of Death!

Greetings True Believers!

With summer passing into memory and temperatures starting to dip, there can be no doubt that fall is in the air! And with that comes fall festivals!

All across New York, celebrations of the fall season are underway. Such as the new Halloween Festival in Chinatown! With fireworks, performers, and food it’s a feast for the senses. One that even the local criminal element has taken steps to protect!

But while criminal gangs from the Disco Boys, Jade Falcons, and even the Golden Lotus declare a truce during the festivities, something still does not sit right. Sensing that there is a disturbance in the air, Fu Qiang Xue – otherwise known as ‘Apothecary Fu’ – has contacted the Knight’s Vigilant to enlist their aid.

While it could be nothing, just the worries of a retired crime fighter. But with this many of the local criminal element in one space at one time? Who knows what might happen!

Grab some dim sum and get ready, there may be fireworks yet to come!

Launch Code: The Conclusion!

The Masked Avengers thought they had this dastardly plot cleaned up! They have knocked Robert Megalos unconscious. They have defeated Blockbuster through fantastic team efforts.

But outside the underwater base, arriving early, are the two rented trucks full of the PPZ’s remaining members.
And the creature called “Summon”.
And some sort of four-armed clay creature.

Also there are people in yellow armored suits, with personal jetpacks, blasting away with yellow-beamed ray guns.

Also there are other people firing back in colors like green, blue, and red!

No, the Trenchcoat Brigade’s work is not done … not just yet!

You are a WEAPON, and you belong to ME!

Roland Desmond of Blüdhaven is a happy man. He has a nice shipment of incoming mutagenic pharmaceuticals and their antidote coming his way. He has an easily floodable base full of this new, rare drug’s creators. He has a new chef, and not just any chef, but the one some criminals call “Chef” — it’s like combining Mercy Graves with Anthony Bourdain!

So what if his shoes got a little damp when he boarded the submarine?

He already has secret control of several neighborhoods in Blüdhaven’s walled section, and today’s work may be just what he needs to increase his power to half the criminal underworld of New Jersey.

Just in time for Mother’s birthday!

What's the best tuna? CHICKEN OF THE SEA!

“One after one by the star dogged moon,
Too quick for groan or sigh
Each turned his face with a ghastly pang
And cursed me with his eye
Four times fifty living men
(And I heard nor sigh nor groan)
With heavy thump, a lifeless lump,
They dropped down one by one.”

- Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

===

Nine in the morning approaches on a late winter’s day in New Jersey. On the shoreline a short way north of Blüdhaven, the brightening sky is mildly overcast. The tide is coming in.

The masked mystery men are going to go down, down, down…..

Now listen here, Larry Duberman!

Among local Greek organizations associated with New York City colleges and universities, Psi Phi Zeta has a reputation as The Most Tight-laced, Boring Frat Ever. They don’t have scandals. They don’t have wild parties. They don’t have nerve-wracking Rush Week traditions. They don’t raid the Dean’s office or play pranks.

They are “staid” if you talk like they do.
“Lame” to everyone else.

Until now!

Something mysterious has lit a metaphorical fire under them. Members are making inventive, amateur forays into several metahuman fields at once. Some research ancient legends of artifacts that granted godlike powers. Some visit Chinatown, asking specific questions about rare, old herbal remedies. Some seek out psychics for very unusual queries. And some … some make suspicious deals on the black market, involving mutagenic “enhancers”. Not just the latest edition of Silent Dreams, either, now called Star Gate.

Last night, the Trenchcoat Brigade disrupted several pieces of a dangerous plan. In the wee hours of the morning, they infiltrated the PPZ frathouse through an ingenious plan and surreptitiously collected a lot of information, which they now take the chance to examine more closely at an undisclosed location.

Interrogating PPZ fraternity brother Larry Duberman ….

The hour is past six in the morning. Many citizens begin their normal days. Others go to rest after a long night.

The Shadow interrogated the young man who organized the supplies, shipments, and assignments for this highly dubious PPZ project. Larry Duberman, Keeper of the Checklists, has given all the information that can be coaxed out of him. Now it is time to dispose of him and plan the next step.

Sahara and Chameleon lurk nearby, just out of sight. They are ready if the Shadow needs backup; also they continue to look through the commandeered materials for any further clue, or for possible lines of further inquiry.

Psypher used the credit card swiped from the PPZ to arrange a future date with the alien visitor Summon: a tuxedo, two tickets to the Broadway production of Aladdin, even a prepaid cab ride. He then disposed of the credit card and traveled to deliver his invitation personally. He had to deactivate his comms for an hour, but the otherworldly being certainly had something to say! Psypher has intelligence to share with his colleagues, and should be brought up to date by them on what he missed.
