It's been a while, after all, since we've played Spirit of the Century.

Well, last time, the apes were under attack! Gar and Elitza were heading back on the speeder while Raenna, Justin and Xax were in the monastery with Garus and the rest of the apes. Mar'ik, Praeceptor of the Fifth District, led squads of ground troops and a squad of flyers, as well as a boat with a big fuck-off ion cannon, to attack the White Ape Monastery.

Raenna and Justin tried to call up the spirits of the Green Martians to possess the reds, but it didn't work out and they abandoned that idea. Elitza and Gar zipped under the fliers, staying stealthy, but I compelled Gar's Vengeance!! Aspect and he shot at them. They turned on the skimmer and fired at it, and Elitza bailed out and scaled the wall of the monastery.

Garus and the apes lobbed rocks at the fliers, and then, with Raenna leading, jumped down off the walls to engage the ground troops. Justin jumped onto the boat and took out the crew there, and fired the ion cannon at the ground troops, vaporizing a bunch.

Elitza (after a compel for Didn't Think This Through - everyone should have an Aspect like that) jumped onto a flier, tossed the pilot off, then jumped to another. The ground troops were losing and although the other fliers had done some stress to Gar, his Integer Pistol was holding them off. Mar'ik called a retreat and the fliers sped off, leaving the surviving troops as prisoners.

The characters discussed their next move. It was pretty obvious that the Master of Chains had sold them out, but maybe that was good - if they could funnel him misinformation and it would end up with the Empire? The device would create water, but also a devastating explosion, so they needed to get it to the Sea of Tranquility. Maybe they could lure the Xenon armies there, too, and use their beacon to get all of their other allies away?

Justin asked Garus is he, as a tactician, had any suggestions, and Garus was just worried because using the Master of Chains this way was risky. But if Elitza went to him and offered to join him, and if they could intercept Mar'ik before he got back and made a report...

So it was settled. Xax quickly used the capture fliers and the ion cannon to soup them up. Justin and Gar would go after Mar'ik and his squad and take them out before they reached Xenon. Elitza would go on ahead to Xenon and "join" with the Master of Chains. And Raenna and Xax would transport the device to the Sea of Tranquility. Raenna, for her part, wants to learn, there, why she's the Mother of Dragons.
