A Savage Break - Rippers

I finally got the chance to run another Savage Worlds Game. Our regular Hackmaster Game was postponed, so I volunteered to run SW. The group decided on Rippers (a personal Favorite). They used the Pregens and after a review of the rules were off.
The Rippers were summoned to meet at the London Lodge by Abraham Van Helsing to look in to the disappearance of Madelyne Hemsworth a daughter of a friend. She had been last seen in the company of certain Lord Talbot. The Rippers were asked to look into the matter and into rumors of the Talbot family’s dealings in the occult.
Through investigations the party found out that there was a party at the Talbot home this evening and Jonathan manage to get an invitation for him and guests. Before going into mansion, Witowski manage to hide his guns near a window for easy access. Then he posed as a blind man so he could sneak Eli into the crowd. While posing in the act Witowski was very charming and got lady friends for him and Mack. Jonathan went to the bar and started scanning the crowd for any clues. A slip up by Mack caused him to rip his dance partner’s with his claws.
Later the party quieted down as a older woman on a second story landing, introduced herself as Lady Fiona Talbot and announced the engagement of Thaddeus Talbot to Madelyne Hemsworth. Immediately Jonathan tried to stealthily scan the couple for any magic, but was caught. AS he was escorted down a quiet hall, Mack and Witowski closed in to help their friend. Witowski went into a convincing act of losing his dog to give Jonathan time to act.
Jonathan cast a thunderclap that luckily only affected the attackers, and Mack clawed one of the assailants. Before they could get any information more guards came out, these were bigger and hairier.
Mack fought with a savage fury, cutting and slashing his foes to ribbons. They followed the couple down another hallway. This one was unlit and foreboding. After quickly searching the various doors, The group found the room that Thaddeus was hiding. He was also the in the company of two guards and four large dogs. Before he could talk, Witowski shot at him unfortunately the bullet seemed to bounce off something before it got to Thaddeus (I love the deflection power) and he transformed into a wolfman. After a few lightning bolts and another thunderclap, it was down to Thaddeus and the group. Mack clawed and kicked him, but he was just too strong. Jonathan finally deduced that the deflection power was coming from Talbot’s necklace. Thaddeus put up a struggle and got in one bite on Witowski. Mack finally got a killing blow.
Before leaving the group caused a fire to cover their exit through the window as the left with Thaddeus’ body and an unconscious Madelyne.
