Bitten by the proverbial (non-radioactive) bug, I got Steve & Stosh to give some super-heroing a try. Three-way battle: Avengers vs X-Men(ish) vs Villains.

STEVE H Wins w 2 survivors
Wolverine (KO'd), Young Avenger's Hawkeye & Storm.
(35pts) KO'd/Captured: Secret Emp Agent 9 (35)

STOSH loses via Captain America KO-ing himself... blush
Captain America, Falcon, & Thor (all KO'd)
(328pts) KO'd/Captured: WINTER SOLDIER (100), WOLVERINE (113), JUGGERNAUT (115)

SCOTT loses, despite his peon's efforts to hang in there (and taking out Thor!)
Juggernaut, Winter Soldier, & Secret Empire Agent #9 (all KO'd)
(175pts) KO'd/Captured: THOR (100) & FALCON (75)

Friday at Mr Sweets, we debuted my Battlestations: Firefly variant with a Training Mission to test the new crew's flying abilty (among other things).

From gallery of Boss Trojan


The crew of the "New Horizon":
Conrad Twitty, Medic(Scientist) (Matt N)
Hunter Caine, Soldier (Matt N)
Acting Captain Connor Malone, Pilot (Nick M)
Jacob Jacobson, Gunner (Nick M)
Duke Brunson, Mechanic (Engineer) (Robbie O)
Lucy Limms, Companion(Pilot) (Robbie O)
Jackson Wei, Engineer (Steve H)
Harlow Keitherton, Shepherd(Scientist) (Steve H)

They ran thru "BOOT CAMP" (Core Book Mission) with a few mods:
Their ship is a Size 5 modified Firefly-class transport.
The Derelict ship was an old, decommissioned Alliance freighter (modified).
The Cortex Signal Relay Satellites were disguised Missile Platforms.

From gallery of Boss Trojan

They dropped out of Full Burn near a dead world, flew a bit to get bearings, were attacked by missiles galore (one bad hit, another minor hit, otherwise nice dodging), launched their shuttle, boarded the derelict, took out the derelict's onboard Auto-Defense Systems, hacked the Main Engine Computer, moved it away from the planet, and jumped both ships to Full Burn back home. Three characters fell, but were revived in time. Not a bad day's work.

Saturday I ran the 2nd Session of my new 5E campaign.
We finished the underwater portion of their adventure, exploring two shipwrecks, seeing ghosts, battling the Undead Pirate Queen, confronting their Captain, and a final showdown with the Were-Eel Monster.
