May Day 2013 – Ghostbusters RPG – Game Session

Game summary for May 11, 2013, Ghost Toasties (shortened) adventure; present characters included Corey Jackson, Mallory Tillis, and Stan Blevins.

Corey Jackson awoke after a night of partying and placed the phone back on the receiver, which immediately began ringing.  On the other end, Fred Lunt of Yum-Mee Food Palace was hollering for immediate assistance!  Corey hit the alarm, and the team sped right over.  Within, they discovered a vacuum-cleaner type ghost sucking down cereal.  Mallory was dragged through the food items and tossed out of the store, but the team was able to blast the ghost with proton packs and neutralize it.

They returned to Ghostbusters HQ for Mallory to clean up and Stan to do research.  While there, they received a phone call from Louis Tully!  Louis told them the President of the United States wanted the help of Ghostbusters International because ghosts were eating cereal all over the United States!  The group agreed to help.  Stan completed his research and revealed he had learned of an ancient demon of unhealthy, sugary foods named Hagost.  A crystal containing the demon’s true power was lost long ago!

The group learned of the Westerfoods’ treasure hunt promotion and figured there was a connection, with the crystal likely being in one of the boxes.  They went to another grocery store and found it too was ransacked.  They got the name of the company’s distributor, ScruggCo, and paid them a visit.  They found the warehouse currently closed and accidentally scared the guard so bad that he cracked his head.  After sounding the alarm and getting the police involved, the guard finally realized the Ghostbusters meant him no harm.  The police left, and the group convinced the guard to head to the hospital to look at his head injury.  He called his replacement and left.  The team moved quickly to try and break into the warehouse.

Within the fence, they discovered Dobermans!  The dogs attacked, and Corey drove one off with a stun gun.  Stan and Mallory wrestled another to the ground and knocked it out with a flashlight.  They then duct taped its mouth shut.  The warehouse door was locked, so Corey blasted it with a proton pack, which only damaged it.  Mallory used a grappling hook from her rappelling kit in the Ecto-1 to break a window and climb up for a peek.  Inside, she could tell the cereal had been eaten and empty boxes strewn about!  Suddenly, the back-up guard arrived and sounded the alarm!  Again.

He ran forward with pepper spray, tussled with Corey, and ended up spraying himself in the face.  They took his keys and went inside while he cried on the ground.  They took PKE readings, which were falling by the moment.  Soon, the police arrived and arrested the entire team, and Louis had to bail them out.  On the way to find a pay phone, they heard on the radio that a winner had discovered the hidden jewel in a box of Flakey Jake cereal and a press conference would be held in three hours at his elementary school.  They tried to veer over and head to the school but instead sideswiped a police car.  Hours of reports and grief later, they arrived at the school in time for the conference to begin!

Within, the president of Westerfoods was giving a speech when a portal opened and sucked him, his executives, little Jason Greer, and most of the 4th grade in!  Demonic arms burst out of the floor and began battering the Ghostbusters.  An epic fight ensued, the gym nearly burned down, but the Ghostbusters were victorious!  Then, for the love of humanity (and the 4th grade), the leapt into the portal!

On the other side, they found themselves in a world of candy with gum drop hills and flowing chocolate rivers.  They were approached by a leprechaun who accused them of wanting to steal his lucky chomps.  They dunked him in a chocolate river, which he seemed to enjoy.  He convinced them to go get a drink at the nearest candy bar where they discovered a host of drunken cartoon cereal mascots such as Zap, Crinkle, and Bop of Rice Krunchies fame, the Quix rabbit, Toucan Jack, Cap’N Crackle, and the Cocoa Quips koala.  Suspiciously absent was Flakey Jake.  After a few moments, the cartoon characters said they had to torture the prison and left the bar.  The team followed and discovered a torture chamber with a taffy puller, licorice whips, and a chocolate iron maiden!  There was Flakey Jake, being tortured.  A fight ensued, with rayguns, hurled pies, and flying crunchy berries.  Toucan Jake even exclaimed “Follow your beak, it’s never weak!” and farted a rainbow blast at the team.  The group had little trouble batting the cartoon characters around and freed Flakey Jake.  Outraged, the characters combined into a massive super cartoon character hurling enormous pies and crunchy berries!  Several of the team members got pied or hit with tasty projectiles!  Mallory tried to scale the sugary beast but sank down within its sweat mass and was rainbow farted off into the chocolate river.  With blast after blast from their proton packs, the group finally brought it down.  In appreciation, Flakey Jake led them to a giant cookie “boat” and down the chocolate river over the falls to the realm of Hagost the Presweetened.

After plummeting over the falls, the team found themselves sitting at school desks with a Flakey Jake Fun Page activity test and pencils sitting before them!  They spent some time answering trivia, working mazes, and otherwise behaving like children.  Once completed, their tests were graded, and they were allowed into the realm of Hagost!

Before them was a massive ocean of barley flakes and Jason Greer floating by the crystal of Hagost!  Hagost, a 40-foot bipedal panther, was trying to get the crystal and regain his powers.  A tremendous fight ensued.  Hagost, who’s powers are GRRRand, forced the characters to eat barley flakes until they could barely move.  They engaged him in several verbal games of wit, outsmarting him over and over.  The distraction proved his undoing and Mallory climbed atop the barley flakes and boxed with the towering demon!  She succeeded in knocking him down and shattering his crystal!  The team cheered in success as the demon was defeated, and they (along with the 4th grade) found themselves bursting out of Flakey Jake cereal boxes at their local supermarket!
