GASLIGHT: Mana from Heaven
A meteorite chuck-full of X-Matter broke up and fell to Earth over a small Belgian town. The Great Powers sent expeditionary forces to claim the rocks. That much of the mysterious substance would power a a whole fleet of airships!
Both sides quickly grabbed pieces of X-Matter closest to their baselines. The Unicycle Uhlans, seeing an opening, dashed out the last piece near the bridge. Unfortunately for them, X-Matter's properties are not follow understood. It had quickly mutated an otherwise harmless river eel into a giant monster!
One Uhlan was devoured immediately.
Meanwhile, more struggles for the Hun. The Killenkanner crashed while trying to cross a rickety bridge while the Wespe fell from the sky, failing it's "Sustain" with a roll of 20.
But, the Unicyclers rallied and valiantly charged the Beast. It fell under the repeated thrusts of their lances, but not before taking a few cyclist with it.
As the night drew late and the Chiefs game suddenly more interesting, we called it a draw and opened a bottle of spirits.
