シカゴで行われたリモートパーティシペーション・エクササイズに関わる報告書を探したところ、いくつか素晴らしいものがあった。まずはエージェントのコッシュ・ザ・リッパーの報告書がこちらのものだ。

カサンドラ、マンハッタン計画及び今日の余波

本日のことになるが、私はエージェントを引き連れてシカゴへ赴いたわけだが、それも始まりだったのかもしれない。懸念したことにはこのグループのパトロンの立場での難題があったわけだが、プレイすることでグループは自ら解消してくれたよ。

  • グループは非常に楽しいときを過ごしてくれた。
  • またこのような機会が欲しいと望んでくれた。

追放された科学者が犯罪組織に拉致され、扉の向こうへ連れていかれる現場に居合わせたよ。後を追うと、いつの間にか第二次世界大戦のさなかにある1940年代のシカゴへ遡っていた。バーではミスティ・ハンナが酒を給仕しているのを見てホッとしたものだ。だが困ったことに、その施設オーナーたる犯罪組織の目に留まり、抗争となってしまった。賽の目がミスティ・ハンナの助けをもたらし、グループは犯罪組織を打ち倒すことができた。更にミスティは彼女の知っていることと拉致された科学者がどこにいるかを教えてくれた。

科学者を追ってシカゴの坑道へ赴き、科学者とそれを匿っていたイタリア軍諜報員を見つけ出した。グループのひとりがイタリア語で語り掛け、現状は生き残るうえで最善策でないことを説得すると、イタリア諜報員は恐れをなして逃げ、科学者が残された。こうして何が起きていたか議論が交わされ、ようやく幾つかのことが明らかとなった。

  • アメリカは鹵獲したドイツUボート「U-505」からテクトゥルフを確保していた。
  • 科学者たちはこの鹵獲テクトゥルフの完成と修復を強要されたが、口々に何者かが心の中で囁きかけてきたと語った。
  • このテクトゥルフは謎めいたエネルギーに充たされていたが、エージェントがそれはエックスエムであると科学者へ指摘した。
  • これまで起きてきたことの大部分にこのテクトゥルフが関わっている。
  • このテクトゥルフに関わる実験状況は芳しくなく部品も失われていたが、マンハッタン計画で明らかとなった部品で修復できる。

そして科学者を仲間に迎え入れ、その導きで地下道を抜けてこのテクトゥルフのあるマンハッタン計画のt戸口へ辿り着いた。

グループは改めてミスティ・ハンナへ協力を呼びかけ、難なく施設内へ入ることができた。施設内の回廊を進み、テクトゥルフの交換部品を回収し、テクトゥルフの安置された部屋へ入った。奇妙なことにそこはテクトゥルフによってドイツの施設につながっていたようだ。

グループはマンハッタン計画テクトゥルフの復元に取り組んだ。この危険な作業を始めると、2013年当時に同じ場所で作業していたと思しきキャリー・キャンベルが亡霊のように加わっていた。テクトゥルフの復元が進むと徐々に機能性が増していき、キャリー・キャンベルもより鮮明な存在となっていった。

カオティックマターに冒されたナチス兵の抵抗もあったが、グループはテクトゥルフを完成させた。そしてその装置が復元されたそのとき、キャリー・キャンベルが名高い自壊シーケンスをテクトゥルフへ組み込もうとしているのを目の当たりにした。エネルギーの新たな奔流とともに悲鳴が挙がった。それは苦しむ女性のものと破壊されていく奇妙な機械の獣だった。

時間パラドックスが回避されると、今の時代へと引き戻された。グループを待っていたのは復活したオリバー・リントン=ウルフで、彼はグループがその目的を成し遂げたと伝えて付き添った。グループは今はシカゴ科学産業博物館で展示されるU-505を通り過ぎ、シカゴの夜景を見た。やがてそのグループはミスティ・ハンナのもとへ再び集まり、彼女から重大な時間パラドックスを回避したグループへ感謝の言葉が伝えられた。

CHICAGO RPE REPORT 1
March 9, 2018 · by PAC · in Passage to Osiris

I was looking for any reports on the #ChicagoRPE that may have emerged during my absence -- I found a few excellent ones. Here is the first, by Agent KoshTheRipper.

The aftermath of Cassandra, The Manhattan Project and Now...

Today I lead a group of agents on a trip through Chicago... or what started out as one. A few things that I feared that would pose a challenge as being the Patron of this group, the group itself solved while we were playing...
• The group had an extremely fun time.
• The group asked when can we do something like this in the future.

The group encountered a time displaced scientist who was promptly abducted by a group of Mobsters and dragged through a door, the group followed in pursuit and found themselves back in the 40's era Chicago during the time of World War II. Behind the bar, the group was relieved to see +Misty Hannah serving drinks and blending in.

Unfortunately the group caught the attention of the owners of the establishment, the mobsters and a fight broke out. Due to the roll of the dice, the group aided by Misty Hannah was able to subdue these mobsters. Misty further briefs the group on what she's found so far and points them in the direction of the abducted scientist.

The group gives chase after this scientist into the tunnels of Chicago, finding and locating the scientist along with a group of Italian Military operatives who were keeping the scientist in their clutches. One member of the group spoke fluent Italian and convinced the operatives that continuing on the current path was not in their best interests in remaining alive. The Italian Operatives fled in fear, leaving the scientist in the company of the group. A deep discussion about what exactly was going on starts, and several points were made clear:
• The Americans came into possession of a tecthulhu captured from a German U-boat, U-505
• The Scientists were strangely compelled to complete and repair this captured tecthulhu, they said that it was as if someone was talking to them into their mind
• This tecthulhu was suffused with a strange energy, which the agents explain to the scientist as being XM
• What ever was going on, this tecthulhu has a major part in it
• The latest experiment involving this tecthulhu somehow went sideways and now pieces of it became missing, but it could be repaired with parts found at the Manhattan Project
The group then has the scientist join their party and the scientist guides the group through the tunnels of underground Chicago to the entrance to the Manhattan Project where this functioning tecthulhu resides.

The group again calls upon Misty Hannah for aid, and she enables the group to enter the facility unchallenged.

The group now works their way through the facility, recovering these replacement parts for this tecthulhu and entering the chamber where the tecthulhu is held. Strangely, the facility seems to be linked with a German facility on the other side of the world, with the tecthulhu as the key. The group begins to restore the Manhattan Project Tecthulhu, as they begin this dangerous task, the group is joined by a ghostly Carrie Campbell, who seems to be working in 2013 but in the same location, the more the group restores the tecthulhu the more functioning this device becomes and the more solid Carrie Campbell appears to be.

The group completes the tecthulhu while meeting push-back from CM infused Nazi soldiers, when the contraption is restored, the group witnesses Carrie Campbell setting the infamous self-destruct sequence into this tecthulhu. There's another major release of energy, with screams being heard, those of a woman in agony and a strange mechanical beast being destroyed.

The group is then pushed back to now as a temporal paradox is averted. Awaiting the group is a now returned +Oliver Lynton-Wolfe while he says the group has served their purpose and to escort them out. The group is ushered past the now on-display U-505 in the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry , and lead out into the night air of Chicago... A few moments later, the group is rejoined by +Misty Hannah who expresses her gratitude to the group for averting a severe temporal paradox.
