Tracked Remote VehicleAuthor’s Note: This is the situation report for the 6th 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.  ]

8 January, 1944 – After defending Monte Majo from a counter-attack by two deadly half-tracks the talents of the FSSF get no reprieve. Over the next two days of freezing cold weather the talents are subjected to over 20 counter-offensives by the German’s. It seems that the Nazi’s highly value Monte Majo. On the morning of 8 January 1944 the Talents are elated to see their that they are getting relieved by the 133 Infantry. As they march down the frozen hillside they inspect their replacements. The men are green. They are either overconfident or too scared. Their canteens slosh around giving away their positions. These are soldiers which are new to the Front.

At the FSSF bivouac the group gets warm showers and a hot meal but their stay is cut short by a visit from General Frederick’s aide. They are ordered to meet in the command tent immediately. At the command tent they are told that Monte Majo has fallen and must be retaken. They are also informed through the intelligence service that a group of cold and winter based Ubers known as “Überkommandogruppe Thor” are working in their area. Tap is given a briefing on the Nazi Ubers. Grabbing their gear the talents and roughly 50 of their brethren in the FSSF return to the hillside.

As they make their way up they see a strange fog surrounding Monte Majo. Once inside the fog they find bails of staked out rusted barbed wire. This confuses them as there is no way the German’s could have setup the barbed wire so quickly. A few yards forward they find a series of trenches lined with sandbags. It looks like the Vimey Ridge?!? With that the talents jump into action. Tank jumps into a machine gun nest and knocks out the Nazi soldiers with his ferrous metal fists! Sparky takes down another with a well place shotgun blast! As they approach Tap uses the eyes of a soldier who happens to be an Uber! He uses this to direct the attacks of the other talents. Butcher derps some soldiers giving tank some needed cover. As the battle rages a dense snowstorm approaches giving cover to an Uber who is throwing deadly icicles. Sparky blast three Ubers with 6 sticks of dynamite then takes a blow from a water blast. Tank approaches dowsing the three Ubers with a flamethrower! Behind Butcher derps the icicle Uber. To his surprise the snowstorm clears and the Uber is shot from behind by one of his compatriots! Turns out that the Nazi Uber doing the snowstorm is the man Abrianna mentioned wanting to defect. Once the Ubers are down the FSSF cleans up the hillside.

10 January, 1944 – After two days of rest advance scouts report that they need the help from the talents. Apparently there is a large half-dome of ferocious snow and wind heading down the mountain toward the camp. Inside one recon squad is trapped. After doing some investigation the talents decide that the best course of action is to man one of the half-tracks and take it into the globe. Sparky fixes one up then does the driving. As it hits the globe it rocks but he keeps it on course. Inside the team finds a FSSF soldier who needs help. They take him into the half-track. After some investigation they find that under the storm is a tunnel. With powerful blows Tank digs out a hole to the tunnel.

Jumping down the group finds a strange scientist manning a small remote vehicle with tank treads. The vehicle appears to be producing the dangerous globe upstairs. In front of the device is an Uber who is making a tunnel for them to advance. Tap does some recon by entering the vision of one of the guards. After some brief talk the talents attack. Tank leads off with the flamethrower blast followed by Tap and Butcher. Quickly the Nazi’s surrenders when Butcher explains the situation to them. To their surprise inside the device is not functional. Apparently the Uber scientist was willing it to function using some type of superpower.

Just another week in the lives of the Black Devil talents!
