A Whimper and a Bang!

Vault Exploration

After the business with the Atlantians the Gunluggers took on a job to recover a precious treasure from an old fallout shelter built before the war. The bunker, or vault, was located under a town of mutated humans. When the Gunluggers entered the vault they found it was a maze inhabited by goblins and ogres. Barley surviving their initial encounter the group entered a central chamber where they discovered an enormous contraption in the center. The group reasoned that it was the storage center of the vault and the most likely place to find the treasure. Kahless reasoned that the storage area could be opened via the use of four metal bars ala a safe, they were already in procession of one and found another after scrounging around.
After falling into a trap set by the goblins the Gunluggers came face to face with a group of soldiers from New Columbia, a state located where New York City used to be. The soldiers were also searching for the vault and thanks to the diplomacy of Brother Caleb cut a deal to split the profits 60/40 and let the Columbians take credit for the find. The Columbians left, but not before Klogmorph stole the rod for the safe they had found.
At a fork the party decided to split up and scout, Klogmorph goeing one way, and Kahless and Grindlestag going another. As you can probably guess an eight foot tall Gragath and a Goblin banging a bone everywhere were not the best stealth party, humorously they wound up walking in on the Goblin sleeping chamber where a dozen Goblins were resting. At the same time Klogmorph entered the kitchen and triggered a trap that alerted an ogress to the party. Divided, trapped and fighting on both sides this looked like the end, but thanks to a divine miracle from Brother Caleb, a well-placed shot by Klogmorph, and the liberal usage of firepower from Kahless and Grindlestag, the party prevailed. They discovered the last rod soon after, being used by the ogre chieftain as a scepter. Thankfully Klogmorph stole the rod out of his sleeping hands, saving the chieftain from Grindlestags mighty bone.
The party opened the vault without informing the Columbians, hoping to renegade on their deal and get 100% of the profits. Down in the storage area they discovered it was inhabited by meat puppets, zombie like creatures reanimated by a virus. The group prepared to flee but discovered the treasure, old spices in an abandoned Italian restaurant. Knowing they couldn’t carry all the spices out with the meat puppets so close, Kahless radioed the Columbians for reinforcements. As the Columbians tried to hold the line Kahless revealed his plan, use the Columbians as bait to hold off the meat puppets while the Gunluggers took the spices, then seal the Columbians inside too their doom. He then proceeded to attack a solider but the party stopped him, not wanting to go through with his heartless plan. After escaping the Vault Brother Caleb apologized for Kahless’s actions and agreed to the 60/40 split, minus the few jars the party managed to hide.
