Beach Head - A Mutant Future Encounter or A Post Apocalyptic Old School Encounter For Any

The PC's learn of a haven for mutants,artificials, altered, humans, & peoples  of all stripes  in the deserts  of California. The Ancients state park of Brodie a former ghost town that has been transformed into a seeming heaven on Earth. But there are devils in this heaven & their evil is spreading.  The characters are called to investigate this seeming paradise on Earth.

Deep within the desert coastline   of California is the thriving town of Brodie California. A town of the Ancients now thriving after the disasters. The town itself is a self sufficient center of trade & commerce. What few know about this town is that it is a front for the powerful M.A.D.D.  super science group. The Mutants Aggressive Dual Destruction group are a powerful group of super scientists & mutants dedicated to preventing the Apocalypse from ever coming to pass. They came to the town drawn by song of an alien metal in the ground.  Brodie has a new commodity that  draws people into the desert. The town of 7,000 of now serves as a self sufficient point of trade for many of the local warlords. Its not uncommon to see several adventurers from other worlds among the population of Brodie.

 Califoricon is an alien mnemonic metal with the properties of a life form. It can be shaped & changed into any number of forms with the simple application of an electrical charge. The mines of Brodie have been reopened with this new commodity. But no one knows is that 
 Califoricon has plans of its own.  M.A.D.D. is run by the 12.5 a shadowy group of Hybrids who have shaped & forged Califoricon into a powerful alien reactor to power a time/plane gate system. They've been using their powerful Guardian shock troops to steal different relics & pieces of technology & magic to further their studies. Their powerful Californicon weapons have turned the tide time & again. Knives made from the metal add a +3 to their damage because of the bits left behind in wounds. There is a cache of Beastmen scientists known as 'the ring' who work for the inner band of the 12.5 through several cells around Brodie. One of the ring has begun to suspect that something isn't right with the alien metal that their mining from the ground. 
Guardians using weapons of the Ancients on one of their many fronts.

Brodie is home to several groups of Morlock refugees who are actually spies among the mutant population passing themselves off as tinkers, shop owners, etc. among the locals. Through their Eloi prostitute & brothel workers they've kept close tabs on the miners. Samples have been taken & analysed. Califoricon is alive & these gates are fitting its own alien agenda. M.A.D.D. has been lied to by its own artifacts & opening gates among the planes is allowing the alien elemental infection to spread. Donald Mackenize is a mutant beast man 6th level  mad scientist whose been suspecting that something is wrong. He may contact the PC's through the Mutant Rail Road's local scout named Randy whose a member of a local bone wielder tribe of warriors. He's acting as a go between for the Morlocks & Donald Mackenzie he can get the PC's information & possibly a sample of the Californicon.
