Mushroom Forest[Author’s Note: This is the log for the 19th and final session. Note that the order of the events in this record may not be in the exact order that they occurred during play. The narrator is shown in italics.]

In this hair-raising adventure of Tesla’s Power Corp you can follow the exploits of the following heroes:

  • Mike Callahan – Tough private-eye with a zest for life.
  • Tommy Kelly – Teen thief with a “Robin Hood” complex.
  • Miles Ravenwood – Mysterious man-of-means with knowledge in all things arcane.

Returning Home

After an uneventful trip back from the Island Of The Blood God the group enters Amazonia. The Amazons greet the heroes with cheers! As Cassandra approaches the old crone walks forward and goes to one knee. The new Queen Of The Amazons raises her hands to quiet the crowd. Cassandra explains that she has rescued six of their warriors. Even though the mission was successful there are still four fallen soldiers that were sacrificed to the Blood God. She then tells the crowd that her slaves are not from this world and that they wish to return home. Due to their bravery in the quest they will be released as her slaves.

In the palace the old crone brings items of the Queen Of The Amazons to Cassandra. One of the treasures is a sacred map. On the map is a spire with a beam of light emerging from it. When the members of Tesla’s Power Corp ask about the spire the old crone explains that it is an ancient city with magic beyond their understanding. The group quickly decides that this will be their destination.

The next morning Cassandra is approached by one of her warrior scouts. The scout reports that Athena has left with one of the slaves not from the Hollow Earth (aka Stefan). After gathering a small crew and boat the group sets sail for the spire.

Mushroom Forest

The boat makes good time to the landmass where the spire is located. The heroes say goodbye to the Amazons and setoff on foot. They find themselves in a forest made up of huge mushroom. After travelling for some time they are beset by strange fungal zombies! The group quickly dispatches them with some well placed shots and lightning.

The Lost City Of Atlantis

On the far side of the mushroom forest a magnificent city appears. The buildings of the city glow with white marble in the bright sun of the Hollow Earth. The heroes make their way towards the spire when they find a broken floor leading to a stairway. The stairway descends to a dark walkway over inky black water. Tommy does not feel safe and Miles detects a large magical creature moving in the water. At first Mike leads the way with his rifle in hand. Icky black tentacles flail out! Mike and Miles blast away at the tentacles as they appear. Tommy sees an opening and races through them dodging as he goes!

On the far side of the dark tunnel is a round white marble room with benches, a strange railing with hand prints, and a dais. Tommy examines the room and notices a seam going along the outer edge of the round room. Miles senses magic on the benches, rail, and dais. Tommy and Miles sit on the benches curious as to what will happen. On the dais the image of a man in a robe appears. The man explains that this is the City Of Atlantis and was made by great men. He then informs the heroes that they are not Atlanteans and so they will be eliminated. With that the floor opens up sending them falling into another room This room appears to be some sort of metal smelting line and the heroes are on a moving conveyor belt! Thinking quickly Miles touches Mike and teleports to the end of the conveyor. Tommy dives through saw blades then springs off of hammers where Mike waits with an outstretched hand!

I Can Destroy You With My Mind!

The members of Tesla’s Power Corp next find a huge chamber with glowing concentric circles suspended by chains over a room filled with lava. In the center of the circle is Stefan bathed in a green light. He soliloquys that he will soon have the mental power of a god! When Athena asks when she will be given power to become the queen Stefan sends her flying off the lower ring where at the last minute she grabs a chain! The heroes jump into action! Miles blasts Stefan with a massive bolt of lightning that miraculously finds a gap in the green shield surrounding the Greek mobster. Tommy dives down to the lower ring in a roll. Mike follows and using Tommy as a springboard barrels through the shield where he knocks Stefan out the other side! The next second Mike’s fists send Stefan nearly off a walkway. Stefan narrowly manages to grab hold with his fingertips! At that moment a group of angry Chicomoztoci priests appear from a walkway and start advancing! Tommy sends his voracious spiders to stop the deranged tribesman then throws a rope to the Amazon warriors so that they may save Athena. When Stefan tries to grab Tommy with his telekinetic mind powers he steps on his fingers sending him sprawling into the lava. Miles then teleports down into the green light! In seconds he feels powerful! Concentrating Miles teleports the heroes and the Amazons back to his penthouse apartment in New York City.

Although returned from the Hollow Earth the impact of their journey will be felt for a long time by the members of Tesla’s Power Corp.
