We had another night of my summer Rifts game tonight. One player was a no show, but the other two managed to have some adventures nonetheless. Highlights:
*The party was nearly wiped out by a Devil Kraken using Ocean Magic, but managed to escape using the Lemurians' aquatic mount and some clever maneuvering. They were unable to salvage the Horune ship it was attacking, however...it got pulled down into the whirlpool.
*The party met a crazy hermited elemental fusionist who told them about the Mighty Lady on the shaman island and the entrances to the undercity. He also told them that the necromancer they previously faced is not the only one in the city, and to be wary of any wizards found deep in the city. (His own person apparently excluded)
*The party found the remains of a suit of alien power armor, origin unknown. The Malvoran wants to attempt to meld himself into it.
So now it seems that the PCs have a more personal stake in Madhaven: the Malvoran has beef with the Horune for selling his people to the Splugorth, and the Lemurians are ancestral enemies of both the Horune and the Splugorth.
This campaign is turning out to be far more interesting than I imagined it would be.
