From various points all around the city, the Scions became aware of a potential catastrophe. Upon meeting up at Twin Peaks, they were able to determine that an acid rain, on an unprecedented scale, was falling on San Francisco. Three different calamities were all about to rock the city, and each one would get worse without attention.
First, through athletic feats of might and magic, they rescued stranded children from a moat of acidic water. Next, they headed north to move a pile of abandoned munitions in hopes of preventing their detonation. Finally, they went south to the zoo and managed to save a group of baby elephants from a collapsing habitat. Each task was not without its casualties, however.
After the disaster passed, a strange man named Brad arrived on behalf of the Progressives. He helped to fill in some of the blanks about the gods and the stars above.
