Mrs Frieda’s Halfway Home Session 5 – The Urban Ninja

So, Sunday has rolled around again in the halfway home.  The kids are awakened again for more boring Sunday service, though following their experiences in the last week, they are eager to see who’s going to give the lesson.  Much to their surprise, they hear a familiar guitar being tuned up downstairs.  Elder Dane is, in fact, back.

After the very unusual service, George hits Elder Dane with a bunch of questions, and Elder Dane offers to answer them at the Terje Haakonsen Skate Park later in the day.  If only the kids weren’t still grounded. . .

Road Trip Session 1 – Prologue to a Travelogue

School’s out for kids at Casimir Polaski Junior High in the city of San Frandiago, CA!  As the kids are leaving school and getting ready for summer, they receive some bizarre messages scrawled on the walls of their school.  While discussing various summer plans at the local Dairy Queen (apparently unfazed by the bizarre graffiti) the kids contacted by Jack Blackguard, a mysterious young boy who has some urgent news to relay to them.  After a meeting at the museum and a few quick fights, the kids find out they are now on a journey to save the world from an evil cult.

Road Trip Session 2 – Sunny Vale (Part 1)

The kids have found out that their monsters will be sacrificed as tribute to some kind of ultimate monster.  Their only lead on the case was pulled through a black hole into another plane of existence.  Fortunately, the kids stumbled across five bizarre and unique postcards from their recent contact Jack Blackguard alluding to various machinations of the cult.

One of the postcards mentions Sunny Vale, CA, a place apparently hounded by a team of monster fighting superheroes who call themselves the Sentai Rangers.  As it happens, Sunny Vale isn’t more than a 3-hour drive from San Frandiago, so after a few “air-tight” alibis and managing to coerce someone with a car to take them there, the kids are off!

Mrs Frieda’s Session 6 – This is why we can’t have nice things!

Once again, the kids royally screwed things up on a Sunday.  After another service by a familiar missionary, the kids decided to meet up with him in the skate park to “talk.”  Apparently “talk” now means “steal a dude’s guitar and cheese it.”  The kids managed to get away, but they haven’t gotten the guitar back to the halfway house yet.

In the course of the action, though, they kids made a new friend.  He goes by the name of Nele, and his past is a tad confusing.  He says a lot of stuff about being a super soldier, but seems to lack any knowledge of everyday things, such as soda and how to get a rag wet.

Additionally, the UFO enthusiasts (still on the hunt for the bizarre flaming streak that shot out from the Cineplex a week ago) have seen related activity somewhere around the Halfway House.  Frieda brought in the police to scare them off, but they always seem to come back for more.

Also, that new attendant seems more focused on his bitchin’ wristwatch than he does on any of the kids.  If you get too close to him, his alarm goes off and he has somewhere to be.  Weird, huh?

Road Trip Session 3 – Sunny Vale (Part 2)

The kids managed to reunite Zoltron and the Sentai Rangers, but the meeting was not as sweet as they had hoped:  Zoltron was furious at the Rangers’ significant lack of effort to rescue him, and the Rangers became enraged at Zoltron’s lack of gratitude.  Zoltron and the Rangers split up and decided they all knew what was good for themselves.

This did not, however, solve the problem that the kids came to Sunny Vale for in the first place.  They managed to rescue Zoltron from his kidnappers, but they have not stopped the Rangers from destroying the city.  With the Rangers being unwilling to talk, the kids decide to deal with them the only way they know how.

(Hint: It involves punching)
