Story Time! One Line at a Time! SotM Edition

This game is easy. I will start the first line of a story, and the next poster will continue it with another line. Then the next adds a line, etc.

To make this more interesting, your line must include the name of SotM card. Before someobe can post the next line of the story, they need to first state what deck the card comes from. Easy!

Ok, I'll start:

Things were getting tense, since communications went out due to the recent solar flare.

Ra.

 

This was a particularly unlucky break for Setback, who was waiting for a call from Expatriette.

Kismet!

Setback grumbled about the phone's suspicious malfunction for hours, before deciding to simply do something about the problem himself.

Miss Information

Setback headed out into what seemed like an unforgiving wasteland.  The streets were oddly empty and a dust storm started up.

Final Wasteland (doo-doo doooo doo...)

 

Typical, it couldn't be a nice cleansing downpour - it had to be a load of dry dust blasting in his face.

But that was Setback's lot in life; no matter how good his fortune was some days, something was always there to turn the tables.

No matter - Setback knew better than to sweat the small stuff, and with a determined grin he began scaling the side of the building, his proverbial sights set on the stripped resources of the communications array on the roof.

Chokepoint! 

I knew it was stripped resources, couldn't think of where it was from.

Once Setback got to the top of the roof, he saw the broken pieces of the communications array, left as nothing more than scrap metal. "Why would anyone do this?" he wondered, as his bad luck kicked in...

Unity :)

...in the form of a meteor shower, albeit one consisting of just a single, tiny meteor which happened to fall in exactly the right spot in front of him to cause him to trip backwards off the roof.

As he fell his arms shot out to grab something to halt his reckless rush to the pavement, but all that did is get him tangled in various service cables and phone wires as he fell.

Setback!

Setback struggled with all the might in his battle forged body, but could not extricate himself from the crazed artifice.

La Capitan and Infinitor!

It was at this point that Setback started wishing he has some kind of sharpened projectile, like a set of throwing knives, or something, which he could throw at the wires in order to sever them. Of course, knowing his luck he'd probably miss and/or cause a blackout in the entire local area, but still...

Wraith and Southwest Sentinels

Character cards don't count, right?

Setback saw a glint of light off of a piece of metal and suddenly found himself free from the cable, and he could tell by the sigh his rescuer gave, a mix of confusion, disappointment, and the god-love-him attitude everyone has about Setback that his newfound freedom had been courtesy of his friendly neighborhood Wraith. "It's so great how us heroes work in such good harmony!" he thought, right before he noticed Citizen of the Sun and Christopher's Paladin lookalike falling from the rooftop above him.
