[ Author’s Note: This is the situation report for the 3rd session of the Godlike Hero campaign. This is my take as to what happened during the session. Please let me know if there are any comments or corrections. ]
6 December, 1943 @ 0100 – The super soldiers of the FSSF are awoken by a courier. The courier kindly asks them to report to the field HQ for an immediate briefing. FSSF command has cleared the saddle between their current position and Monte le Remetanea (Hill 907) through aggressive patrols. The plan is to take the hill that morning using 2nd Battalion as a flanking force for the 1st Battalion. Even though the Germans have higher ground their numbers are estimated to be very low. A thick fog has surrounded Hill 907 which should aid the Forcemen.
At 0430 the super soldiers and Forcemen get into position. At 0500 the attack begins. The super soldiers led by Tank rush up the left side of the main defensive position. Sparky and Skeet follow close behind; Skeet picks off a target while Tank crushes another under his powerful metal blows. Tap takes out enemy soldiers in a methodical fashion. Butcher derps a critical machine gun nest near the center of the battlefield. After taking out the first bunker the soldiers clear the next wave of defenses. Sparky dashes up to the next bunker in literally the blink of an eye dropping a C-2 charge. To his surprise a sniper in a flanking position gets a luck shot on his leg. As the explosion goes off rocks and German soldiers go flying into the air. The concussion stuns Sparky but he is covered by other super soldiers.
As the group readies for their next advance a white ghostly figure emerges from the rocks. Tap recognizes the power of a German Ubermenschen known as The Apparition. His form appears to be talking to someone back with his host body. The next second mortar shots fire off! The ghostly form appears to be directing mortar fire on the super soldiers! With some fancy shooting Skeet shoots the incoming mortar rounds out of the air! With that Tank sprints up the left flank then through some thick bushes just to the left of the first mortar bunker. As he rounds the corner down the hill German soldiers exploded by Sparky rise up and start to march towards the bunker! Tap knows this to be Phalanx a German Ubermenschen who can make the dead rise.
Again Sparky speeds up to the bunker wall. This time the plan is to drop a bundle of dynamite into the bunker with Phalanx. To his surprise, The Apparition’s host body is in the same sanger. He thus sees Sparky and orders troops to shoot him. Two soldiers reach around the walls and shoot at Sparky. He quickly stands then detonates the explosives. Although getting hit he manages to shield himself from the force of the explosion. Phalanx and The Apparition dive away from the dynamite but Phalanx is caught in the blast. Tank makes quick work of Phalanx with a blast from his trusty Johnson LMG. Skeet approaches throwing grenades on a radio operation and company commander. On the far side of the hill Butcher spots a soldier peeking out from behind a rock and derps him. This gives Skeet a chance to advance and finish him off. Tank rushes forward and finds a cave mouth. He spots a German Ubermenschen and chases him down the winding tunnel. The man eventually surrenders to Tank.
After a brief interrogation the FSSF supers discover that the man Skeet killed was a new Ubermenschen known as Domino. The man in the cave is known as The Miner. Under interrogation from Tap and Tank, The Miner reveals that he met with an Ubermenschen leader known as Paralysis who is near Monte Mojo to the north.
8 December, 1943 @ 0100 – After the battle at the Camino Hill Complex the group returns to Santa Maris where they are debriefed then given two day passes to Naples for some I&I (Intercourse and Intoxication). Several members of the team regale locals and other soldiers with their exploits from the last few days getting drunk in the process. Butcher talks about the FSSF Forcemen to a large crowd then attempts to get opera tickets but they are sold out.
10 December, 1943 @ 0100 – The group returns to Santa Maria packs up their gear and moves to their new bivouac near the town on Ceppagna. They are staying with various local families until shipping out to the front.
While resting in their house there is a knock on the door. A Sgt from the FSSF explains that there is a local girl who says she needs help from someone with super powers. The super solders agree to see her. The petite and pretty Italian woman is known as Camella. She explains in very good English that her friend Abrianna needs help and asks the soldiers to join her. The group does down a few blocks to a small house. Inside they meet a taller shy Italian woman Abrianna who appear to be 5 months pregnant. Using Camella to translate Abrianna explains that she met a German soldier…one with ice powers…named Karl. She says that Karl and her are in love and that he has to leave for the front. Abrianna insists that Karl is not a killer and asks the group to please not kill him if they encounter him on the battlefield. She knows her Karl would not fight if given another option. Butcher asks about Abrianna’s care and discovers that she has not seen anyone out of fear. The persuasive Major convinces Abrianna to get medical care and recommends a doctor. The group leaves with a picture of Abrianna and a description of Karl who Abrianna says can cause snowstorms. Tap has not heard of this Ubermenschen but vows to check with his superiors.
