[Chateau] Session Recaps

edited August 2011 in Out-Of-Game
Gritch - 1st Session
•Wakes up with Kettle in his bed. A lustful night for a few barter.
•Mimi comes into her place from the cold. She asks Gritch to talk to Navarre about Ruby working there.
•Mimi offers to help Gritch with White if Gritch agrees.
•Gritch invades Mimi’s brain. He sees that she sees the ghost of her dead son and that she was raped by some of Dog Head’s men during the war. One of them was Exit. She craves forgiveness of Uncle for getting Crutch to help her have two abortions (presumably his would-be children).
•Gritch agrees to help Mimi and goes to Barker’s place to find Navarre. Barker wants a toll for the information. Gritch tries some mind-fuckery on Barker, so Barker flips out, takes Gritch’s antique gun by force but gives Gritch the information he was looking for. Gritch curses Barker, but doesn’t do anything.
•Arriving at the troughs, Gritch finds Navarre. Pete and Rothschild keep working while Navarre steps outside to speak with Gritch. Gritch breaks the news to Navarre. After breaking the news, Navarre asks Gritch to tell Ruby to move out of his room. Gritch agrees and heads out to do that.
•Gritch makes it to Navarre’s room. Ruby is inside, and greets him with a pistol. But, once she realizes who it is and what he’s there to talk about, she lets him in. Gritch explains the sitch and Ruby doesn’t react kindly. She gathers her shit up and leaves. She’s going to Fleece’s place.
•Gritch notices a strange, eerie poppet on Navarre’s shelf. Approaches it and opens his brain. There’s a vision of a man wearing a thin poncho. Then, back in Navarre’s room, Balls is there. He warns of the “one clinging” onto Gritch already. “Don’t need no more.” Gritch takes the poppet nonetheless and heads to see Spector about it. Seein’ as he wears a thin poncho.
•Asking at the gate, Gritch finds out Spector is at the surgeon’s bunker. He heads there and makes it with no incident. Gritch notices pretty Pamming and he starts chatting with Spector about the poppet, dropping it to the ground. They argue about trapping spooks in dolls and such.
•Interrupting, Marlene asks about the meat Vera gave her. Spector opens his brain. It’s Bowdy.
•About that time, Tum Tum and Navarre ride back up. Navarre asks Gritch to come to Uncle’s cottage with them. He agrees.
•The three arrive at Uncle’s cottage and Navarre approaches Mo on the front porch. But, then a rumbling happens above. It’s the fire from a hot air balloon.
•Mo motions for Gritch to come in. Gritch is scoping the sitch, but Seville orders Violetta to take Gritch’s glove.
•Gritch goes apeshit, flicks his cig at Violetta and direct-brain whispers her. Mo draws on Violetta and Violetta is pulling on Mo. Seville is throwing up his arms to try and stop bloodshed. It’s too late though, Gritch has already got into her mind. She drops her pistol, using her hands to try and cover her ears and backs away…
•Uncle snatches up Seville – and he’s got a bomb strapped to his chest, ole Seville does. Then, a shot rings out over the hillside. And gunfire erupts.
•Gritch runs toward the bathroom to take cover. But, Mo is getting pinned down with a hail of fire and goes down. Gritch runs back and grabs her and pulls her into the bathroom. Door shut.
•The balloon explodes!
•Gritch makes his way cautiously out of the bathroom and heals Navarre with his healing touch.

Comments

  • Navarre (Fido) - 1st Session
    •Wakes up from a dream, gun in one hand, poppet in the other.
    •Ruby slips into the room. He tells her about his dream running from Dog Head’s men, falling off a cliff.
    •Taking a piss, notices Princy heading to Uncle’s cottage.
    •Then, Barker approaches. And, he tells Navarre (Fido) to clean the shit troughs. Rothschild, the old timer, is waiting at the undercroft stairs. The rest of the crew (Bowdy and Pete) are missing. Bowdy and Pete are fuckups in good with Fleece, who hates Navarre because Ruby was sweet on him before Navarre came along.
    •Navarre goes to knock some sense into Bowdy and Pete. Instead, he just blows a hole through Bowdy’s side with a shotgun. Barker and some other Rough Riders come in at the sound of the blast. Navarre explains the sitch. Takes Pete with him to finish his duty.
    •Shoveling shit cheerfully, Navarre is getting work done when Gritch arrives. Pete and Rothschild keep working while Navarre steps outside to speak with Gritch. Navarre gets the news that Ruby has been working at Mimi’s the past couple weeks.
    •Navarre asks Gritch, if he sees her, to tell Ruby to get her stuff out of his room. Gritch agrees.
    •Tum Tum rolls by on the trike and tells Navarre to finish up and meet him at the morgue. Navarre orders Rothschild and Pete to finish up and tells Rothschild if he needs anything, to come to him.
    •Navarre then reports to Barker. Barker’s fondling Gritch’s antique gun. Navarre takes the gun from Barker. Then, leaves and heads toward Crutch’s bunker.
    •Navarre arrives and Tum Tum asks him to just help out, make sure Marlene is ok. He does. Then Crutch starts getting crazy about everyone down in the cellar, so Navarre heads outside and waits.
    •It’s then that the news about Ruby really hits him. Tum Tum joins him. Navarre spills the beans and Tum Tum listens. Then, he suggests confessing to Uncle about Bowdy.
    •Tum Tum and Navarre notice a huge fucking hot air balloon descending down to Uncle’s cottage. The two swing by Navarre’s place to get some weaponry. Navarre notices the poppet is missing, but thinks Ruby took it. Nice.
    •As they’re leaving, they bump into Princy, who orders them to find Gritch, like now, and bring him to Uncle’s cottage. Navarre opens his brain and sees Gritch at Crutch’s place. Back to there on the trike they go.
    •They show up with Marlene, Spector and Gritch standing around discussing things. Navarre asks Gritch to come to Uncle’s cottage with them. He does.
    •The three arrive at Uncle’s cottage and Navarre approaches Mo on the front porch. But, then a rumbling happens above. It’s the fire from a hot air balloon.
    •Mo orders Navarre to keep an eye on the balloon. As things get heated inside Uncle’s cottage, Navarre is scoping the balloon for the fuel source.
    •Then, a shot rings out over the hillside. And gunfire erupts.
    •Navarre is lighting up the balloon with his assault rifle, but takes some grazing bullets to the midsection. Tum Tum’s bike is hit and starts leaking fuel. Navarre throws down some suppressive fire and Tum Tum runs toward the cottage. Navarre takes a few more rounds to his legs. He passes out and Tum Tum is dragging him into the cottage.
    •The balloon explodes!
    •Navarre awakes to Gritch standing over him healing him.
  • Spector - 1st Session
    •He’s lying in bed, watching Pamming sip from the leak in the roof. She tells Spector that she’s been vomiting; she’s dying. Is it the spores out west, the kind that make you puke dark red? Nah. Sheriff, the dog is there.
    •Two kids arrive dragging a stretcher with a man (that’ll be H eventually) on it. One’s Matilda, the other is Frankie. They’ve come from Backwater. Frankie says they’re brother and sister. Matilda is quiet.
    •Spector examines H further, but sends Pamming to take Frankie outside so he can talk with Matilda alone. She tells him they’re not really siblings.
    •H has red spots and is swollen in various parts of his body.
    •Spector tries to convince Frankie to loan Pamming his gun so she can head down to the Chateau with Mendel to get help. Pamming talks to Spector outside, she’s freaked out.
    •Spector comes back into the house and tries to take Frankie’s gun. In the struggle, a gun goes off, Matilda has been shot. Spector struggles with Frankie, knocks the gun out of his hand but not before being shot. Frankie flees.
    •Pamming and Spector work to stabilize Matilda. They need a doctor. They head to the Chateau with Matilda and H in tow.
    •As they approach the Chateau, Matilda starts dying. Spector gets in the back of the cart while Pamming drives and tries to save her. But, Matilda dies as they reach the bunker.
    •Spector goes down in the bunker, finds Crutch and sees Vera (Marlene’s daughter) there.
    •After taking Matilda down into the bunker, Crutch confirms she is dead and asks for the other (H). Spector opens his brain and sees visions of an imposter Frankie murdering Matilda’s seemingly real brother. Matilda’s ghost asks Spector to help her family (presumably in Backwater).
    •Everyone descends into the bunker. Crutch wants everyone to leave!
    •Spector and Pamming go get the man (H) and bring him down as well.
    •Marlene is trying to look for Vera in a non-obvious way, but Crutch is insisting on getting everyone out, and asks Spector for aid. As Spector starts to respond, he notices Crutch has something clutched in his hand and seems somewhat hostile, Vera comes rushing through a door in the back of the bunker.
    •Spector backs out of the bunker slowly. Crutch slams the doors shut. At this point, Gritch arrives.
    •Gritch notices pretty Pamming and he starts chatting with Spector about the poppet, dropping it to the ground. They argue about trapping spooks in dolls and such.
    •Interrupting, Marlene asks about the meat Vera gave her. Spector opens his brain. It’s Bowdy.
    •About that time, Tum Tum and Navarre ride back up. Navarre asks Gritch to come to Uncle’s cottage with them.
    •Spector and Pamming are about to head to Backwater, but Pamming says she just wants to go home. Spector agrees they could use the rest and take a bath. So, he writes a note to Lars. He asks Lars to dedicate resources to three things: the ruffian “Frankie”, the ill man (H) in Crutch’s care, and investigate Backwater. Also, Spector mentions sponsorship for a trip to a hospital. Then, he heads to drop off the note at Lars’ cottage.
    •Heading there, Spector notices a huge hot air balloon hovering above Uncle’s place. Instead of going directly there, he moves to a hillside and fixes his rifle on the scene to get a better look. Of course, he’s distracted by something in a clearing not near Uncle’s cottage. It’s Marlene and she’s with someone and a group of Rough Riders are watching her. The men in the balloon notice Spector at that point. And, Marlene is taken down by Boo.
    •Then, Spector notices a spook coming up the hillside. The spook asks Spector to help Marlene. Spector doesn’t hesitate. He fires. The man on top of Marlene goes limp.
    •Lala moves toward Marlene, but Spector also notices Princy leading a small army of men toward Uncle’s cottage. Spector tries to get a better look, but then things heat up down at Uncle’s cottage and suddenly gunfire erupts from the balloon up the hill toward Spector and Pamming. Spector dives behind his cart, shielding Pamming with his own body.
    •The balloon explodes!
    •Marlene comes up the hillside. Spector gives her a note to give to Lars. They leave.
  • Marlene - 1st Session
    •Marlene wakes with Sarah, her daughter, in her lap. She’s below deck of her barge. There’s smoke coming from on deck.
    •Jimmy (Marlene’s son) and Timmy (Marlene’s adopted son that resembles Jimmy) are on deck. Timmy’s cooking something on a fire (or trying to), and Jimmy is poking something with a stick. Vera (Marlene’s daughter) is missing, apparently gone to get food.
    •On the side of the boat, there’s a dead body – a Rough Rider. Marlene heads up to the Chateau to report it. On deck, she encounters Tum Tum, Tao and Lala. Lala ain’t too keen on Marlene a falling out with Biscuit. There’s a brief exchange that Tum Tum derails. Timmy knows more, but ain’t talking. Then, carrying the body up to the Chateau.
    •As they’re carrying the body through the lawn, Marlene notices a fat man in suspenders (Boo) holding Vera’s red crescent wrench. Boo says he got it from Crutch. Marlene doesn’ t have time to question Boo, but Tum Tum is headed to Crutch’s place anyways, so she hitches a ride. Pamming and Daff are outside when they get there.
    •Spector comes out of the bunker with a gurney and tells Marlene that Vera is down in there.
    •Navarre arrives. Spector and Pamming are loading Matilda onto the gurney.
    •Everyone descends into the bunker. Crutch wants everyone to leave!
    •Marlene is trying to look for Vera in a non-obvious way, but Crutch is insisting on getting everyone out, and asks Spector for aid. As Spector starts to respond, Vera comes rushing through a door in the back of the bunker.
    •Marlene takes Vera’s hand and leads her out. Crutch slams the doors shut. Gritch arrives.
    •Marlene starts questioning Vera about the morning. Vera explains she got some meat from Crutch. Turns out she traded Barney’s wrench for the meat. Spector and Gritch are chatting.
    •Interrupting, Marlene asks about the meat Vera gave her. Spector opens his brain. It’s Bowdy.
    •About that time, Tum Tum and Navarre ride back up. Navarre asks Gritch to come to Uncle’s cottage with them. Tum Tum says he doesn’t need Marlene right now, but stay close in case he does.
    •Marlene leaves toward the market, trades the meat away, and then approaches Boo, who turns out to be Crutch’s brother, at the machine shop where Daff and Wisher are working. Boo seems attracted to Marlene, so she lures him out of the machine shop and off to a secluded location.
    •Finding a tree, Marlene tells Boo to help her unzip her coveralls. Others begin approaching though. It’s Lala, and at this point, Marlene has riled up Boo to the point where he’s violently pulling her down to the ground, ready to have sex. Lala and her companions just watch though.
    •Then, a shot rings out and Boo goes limp.
    •Lala and crew investigate, but Marlene feigns death and they buy it.
    •The balloon explodes!
    •Marlene comes up the hillside. Spector gives her a note to give to Lars. They leave.
  • Uncle (Lars) - 1st Session
    •Wakes to someone boiling tea in his cottage. Sneaks through the cottage and notices a thumbless man sitting at the table (Seville, the one responsible for Uncle’s son James’ death), and muddy drag tracks where the door guard, Pellet was pulled across the floor.
    •Uncle moves quickly to snatch up Seville. There’s someone else in the room: a young woman in leathers with a half-shaved head of blonde hair (Violetta).
    •They make an agreement to talk it out, once Princy arrives. He does.
    •Uncle sends Pellet to get Mo (daughter-in-law) to help.
    •Seville explains they want Gritch and have Jean (Uncle’s daughter). Jean hasn’t been seen in two days, since a fight about boyfriends and whatnot.
    •Princy reports that the night patrol hasn’t returned, communication attempts have failed. Flare went up at the dock – word is, family at the dock found a dead body, might be one of the patrol. Fido killed Bowdy.
    •Mo arrives finally. Seville explains the plan. Violetta and Gritch will get on the “Coca-Cola” (a hot air balloon) and leave, while Seville stays behind and takes them to Jean.
    •Tum Tum, Fido and Gritch arrive.
    •Gritch comes in. Gritch is scoping the sitch, but Seville orders Violetta to take Gritch’s glove.
    •Gritch goes apeshit, flicks his cig at Violetta and direct-brain whispers her. Mo draws on Violetta and Violetta is pulling on Mo. Seville is throwing up his arms to try and stop bloodshed. It’s too late though, Gritch has already got into her mind. She drops her pistol, using her hands to try and cover her ears and backs away…
    •Uncle doesn’t take kindly to Seville’s threats and snatches him up, bashing him in the mouth. But, Seville smiles and reveals some contraption, explosive-like, taped to his chest.
    •Then, a shot rings out over the hillside. And gunfire erupts.
    •While a massive gun battle is happening, Uncle is wrestling with Seville over the detonator, but Seville gets a move on Uncle and puts a blade to his neck. Uncle headbutts Seville, working his way out of it and knocks Seville out cold. But, Violetta has drawn on Uncle, Tum Tum races to knock her off balance and takes the pistol from her. He doesn’t end there, he’s pummeling her face.
    •The balloon explodes!
    •Princy and his platoon arrive. They take Violetta to the dungeon.
