The 1944 Nazi Expediation to Carcosa-Episode 4 - Parts Quest Part II - Into The Ruins

The 1944 Nazi Expediation to Carcosa is alright underway! The first shock is that the party isn't working for a wizard but something much,much, more dangerous.They now owe him (it) a very large favor! Its a quest for a special item. 

The Changing Towers Of The Old Ones awaits - This structure changes it faces & shape in strange shapes of blasphemy & forbidden geometries

Dynamic Tower

A planned 420-metre (1,378 ft), 80-floor moving skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, designed by architect David Fisher.

Each floor will be able to rotate independently. This will result in a constantly changing shape of the tower. Each floor will rotate a maximum of 6 metres (20 ft) per minute, or one full rotation in 90 minutes.

It will be the world's first prefabricated skyscraper with 40 factory-built modules for each floor. 90% of the tower will be built in a factory and shipped to the construction site. This will allow the entire building to be built in only 22 months. The core of the tower will be built at the construction site. Part of this prefabrication will be the decrease in cost and number of workers (90 at the work site and 600 in the factory instead of 2,000 needed). The total construction time will be over 30% less than a normal skyscraper of the same size. The majority of the workers will be in factories, where it will be much safer. The modules will be preinstalled including kitchen and bathroom fixtures. The core will serve each floor with a special, patented connection for clean water, based on technology used to refuel airplanes in mid-flight.

The entire tower will be powered from wind turbines and solar panels. Enough surplus electricity should be produced to power five other similar sized buildings in the vicinity. The turbines will be located between each of the rotating floors. They could generate up to 1,200,000 kilowatt-hours of energy. The solar panels will be located on the roof and the top of each floor.

In 2008, Fisher said that he expected the skyscraper to be completed in 2010. In 2009, Fisher said construction would be complete in late 2011. However, construction has not started yet, and there has been no official announcement of the building site. Fisher did not "say where the tower would be built, because he wanted to keep it a surprise." Fisher acknowledges that he is not well known, has never built a skyscraper before and has not practiced architecture regularly in decades ~  credit to Farai Ada Shaba and Ziaul Moula.
The party must retrieve a custom made ray gun from one of the 3 d printing modules of the tower (which still has running water & power). Nothing inside has been touched for hundreds of years. Thanks to the power of the Old Ones..
  Lights, Water, Heat, etc is all working..
The idea came from Here 

Opps did I forget to mention that there's a village guarding the tower & that they are led by a 7th level fighter called the Red Panther. The village is a tech level 3 affair which is using all plastic scale armor tied with nylon cord, plus their armed with short swords, & laser rifles. 
Where did their technology come from?
Idea also from Here

The PCs have engaged the services of a guide in exchange for some medicine & supplies..They're not liking the tentacle that are their guide's left hand/limb. The guide eyed up the women several times. Some of the men are stroking the men are stroking their Lugers. 
He or is it an it has gotten them to the city ruins.

The PCs almost got sold into slavery to the blue men inhabitants of the ruined city. Their thief made his language roll. I do love Crypts & Things rules about that. The group is willing to sell the bodies of their dead comrades in exchange for passage through the city. The blue men are lead by a 9th level necromancer. This might comeback to bite them in the rear later.

Yup all ten players are "into" it. They need parts & this saucer will provide some of them. Wait what are those small nasty grey humanoid zombies with the sharp teeth. 5 hit points each 1d4 bite damage. Zombie infection unless save vs death is rolled.
Opps we lost 3 players to grey zombies... :(

So what does the rest of the city look like? Oh you mean besides ruins? Well there are plasma fires that are still burning, extreme weather like lightning strikes lighting up the red blue sky sky with large swaths of green grey across the city skyline.
After a few moments the doorway in time fades around your characters. It is replaced by the burned out ruins that you've been exploring.

You come to the base of the tower. There are waves of shallow water around it. The streets are empty. It is eerily quiet & silent. Then above you is a heard a grinding metallic ear splitting sound. The tower above your heads is changing. 
Occasionally there are ripples as if something large swims in the waters..

The players are having a smoke break after learning that there is a tribe of Deep Ones guarding the tower. After their psychic used the Commune with Deep One spell & passing his sanity roll. They learn that the price for getting into the tower is mating with the Deep Ones. The female players groaned until they learned that this was a tribe of female deep ones & they were demanding the right to mate with the fittest male of the party. They're trying to decide whose going to do the deed. 
Yes I'm this evil. This is one of the tribe

The characters have reached the island after paying the price. The fighter who did the deed went insane & was put down for the rest of the game with sleep spell & healing spell. The PCs have found thousands of cybernetic limbs gripping one & another in the form of a sculpture that reaches 40 feet into the air. The building is surrounded by an eerie red glow. The plants & trees grow along side of t
he place but will not touch it. There is a strange colour about the plants & some are weird, sick looking, & twisted. The PCs have decided to make camp on the island. They're eating lizard for their meal.
The treasure haul includes 3 jale ray guns, a bunch of blue green deep one gold, & three cans of nuclear fuel.The doors to the tower are locked of course!

On my way home because that's game. What a great night! Three dead PCs & one insane. I over ate way too much pizza... All 10 players showed up & fun was had by all. Its sort of Inglorious Bastards Of Carcosa


  1. Sounds like another great session.
