The player decided to eat the stranger who was actually a Metaluna Astronaut armed with an elder sign!
The Npc encased Irving in a force bubble & was about to force feed him said symbol.
Meanwhile a space fleet was closing in on the asteroid ship. A strange white light was racing ahead of the fleet. The number of ships seemed to vary & a very deep scan revealed that a white hole was racing ahead of the fleet.
An Interocitor. Several rolls later the character is nearly clawed to death & blown up by the explosives that had been packed in the bot since last game.
The asteroid ship was finally able to break through the white hole's effects which included slowing down any missiles launched at it. The engineer launched a singularity missile at the fleet & collapsed the fleet which half of the ships were packed with bio explosives! The whole thing collapsed the hyperspace bypass for the next 10 to 100 years as the explosives took everything into a Newton Hizenburg bridge!
At the same time the Metaluna astronauts reacted as their psionic link broke apart! The one holding Irving collapsed on himself & Irving ate him but the Elder sign dealt damage to his insides!! The young shaggoth made his constitution roll & began to regenerate!
Meanwhile the other astronaut confronted another assailant & crossed space swords. The melee went on until a natural 20 ended the life of the other! The player however sustained some damage!
To be continued!
