Masks Phoenix Academy, Session 22, I want to punch Brahma SO MUCH

Things are coming to a head in Halcyon City. Oversight (well, Brahma) is attacking Pheonix Academy, claiming Hellbinder and Alias have corrupted the kids at the school for nefarious purposes, all so he can cover up heinous things he’s done in the past.

Meanwhile, Ember’s mom is playing with file – literally, her fire powers that she only ever learned to repress, never control.

Masks: Phoenix Academy – Session 15 – Regroup, Fail, Repeat

Intro Video!

It’s Kaylee’s birthday, and the end of the first week of REAL LIFE high school for our players, so between birthday cake, rehashing school, decompression, and half the team needing an early bedtime for marching band practice the next morning…

… and introducing some totally amazing character art I got commissioned for the girls (art by charcooll on Instagram) …

It was a pretty short session. Thank goodness we’ve had the good play-by-post action going on.

It’s gym class, and S.U.R.G.E. has everyone fighting annoying opponents in 1v1s. It doesn’t go well, but hey: everyone gets potential?

Also: Palacine thinks everything going wrong is her fault.

Masks, Phoenix Academy play-by-posts, Sessions 14.1, 14.2, and 14.3

We’ve had a looooooong stretch where we’ve been unable to play Masks with my daughter’s group. To deal with the withdrawal, I ran solo play-by-post things with each player, both to move some plotlines and, at their request, get some time with their boyfriends. It went really well! (Some players take to PbP better than others, and I’ve never been great at keeping such things up in the long term, but for this, it was pretty awesome.)

Anyway, for the sake of completeness, here’s are links to the three “between” arcs that happened.

Session 15 tonight! I am excited.
