HumanaGen adn SRD bring Synthetic Blood to Market

“Hi I am Chet Checker.
“And I am Bridgette Bundy.”
Together they say, “And we bring you San Diego Today.”

Bridgette starts, "A recent announcement from start-up biotech firm HumanaGen discloses that they have received government funding in partnership with the Navy’s Strategic Research Division. With the announcement of this partnership, HumanaGen is readying it’s first marketable product, Synthentic blood named “Plasma Transcend” Here is Lenoard Carp, CEO of Humanagen

Camera pans to an obese man standing behind a podium his large stomach protruding around each side almost gripping the sides of the stand. “Plasma Transcend will save countless lives not only on the battlefield but across the globe. This synthetic blood substitute can be immediately supplied to a wounded soldier or individual, regardless of blood type. It not only replaces the lost blood but acts as a healing agent stimulating the bodies healing responses to deal with infection and mass trauma. Here is a video of our last laboratory trials.” Before the camera pans away, Fat Leonard’s lip quivers with excitement as he looks upon a helpless white rabbit.

A white rabbit lays upon a white towel and is strapped down to a small table. An Indian man with a large pompadour hair style smiles at the camera before grabbing a small scalpel and removing the rabbit’s leg. Blood streams from the rabbit spilling onto the white towel and splashing the white fur of the rabbit. Next the Indian man pulls forth a syringe containing pinkish gel like material and injects the material into the rabbits neck. Almost immediately the blood slows from the leg and after a few minutes with the time sped up on film, the bleeding stops altogether.

As the camera pans away to show the Indian doctor smiling again underneath his large pompadour a loud screech can be heard off camera and a grimace of pain comes over the man’s face as he reflexively pulls his hand away from the table. The film abruptly cuts off.

The newscast brings back the two news anchors Bridgette and Chet. Chet’s face is white as a ghost as he says “Bridge, you have to warn me before you show blood on camera.”

""You Betcha Chet," she says and then continues with, “We reached out to Captain Daxon Stone of SRD for comment but received no response.”

In the News Missing Malvora

“Hi I am Chet Checker.
“And I am Bridgette Bundy.”
Together they say, “And we bring you San Diego Today.”

Chet, “In tragic news famed big wave surfer and all around daredevil, Mikey “Skin Dog” Malvora went missing after attempting this wave in Cortes Bank 100 miles off the coast of Point Loma”

Video of a massive wave crashing on top of a man. After 10 seconds the board resurfaces broken in half but the man never resurfaces. Massive wave after wave after wave piles onto where he crashed.

“His three brothers, also respected daredevils for their numerous X-game victories, but maybe more known for their off-camera antics with the law reaction was captured with this video.”

“You set us up you limey prick.” A shirtless lean muscular man grabs a younger man and lifts him like he was a toddler off the ground by his throat. The younger man holds a crucifix at bay while saying “are you getting this…are you getting this..” The young man is pushed up against the railing and before tipping over backwards the muscular man can be heard saying “wrong kind of vam….muffle…muffle (as the camera his jostled).” The lean man tips over backwards. The camera pans to the man crumpled in the bottom of a Zodiac. The camera shakes as the camera man leaps into the Zodiac missing but catching the side of the boat with one hand and dropping the camera into the boat with the other sending it tumbling. The camera no longer capturing any visible images only provides off camera sound. “See,” a voice with an English accent. “I told you they aren’t human….”Score one for COURAGE.” Another voice can be heard…”dude just go..go…GO!”

Chet returns to the screen. “As you can see the Malvora family are as known for their hostility as well as for their daredevil antics. It is even rumored they are a gang of criminals using their daredevil skills and fearlesness to rob banks and commit crimes.”

“Bridgette, burst in. “Rumors Chet. Did you just say Rumors?”
“’You Betcha”
“And you know Chet you just described the plot of Point Break right?”
“Great movie Bridge. One of my all time faves. “

The camera pans to Bridgette an exasperated hand on her head. Cut to commercial.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
