Road Trip Session 13 – Jim’s Puck Band

In an effort to save Everett from a mysterious and powerful shadow the previous night, Daniel managed to worsen his injuries much further.  Additionally, people seem to be packing up and leaving from Summerset Valley following this bizarre black rain.  The kids need to get to the next destination as soon as possible, but Daniel is still injured far too badly to be discharged.  They need a plan to sneak him out of the hospital.

On the other side of town, Donny’s insurance payment has come in, and he’s looking to get something cheap, semi-reliable, and big enough to finish taking the kids around the country.  He stops off at Crazy Jacques’s Used Car Emporium to try and find something in that category, but finds that Jacques’s prices aren’t the only thing that’s insane.

Road Trip Session 12 – “. . .For the Camera!”

Following an epic struggle wherein the Grinning Man was dealt with, there is a lot of destruction and panic left in his wake:  Large portions of the town were damaged by the Grinning Man, people can’t account for lost time, many people are wounded, and some are missing.

On the player side, 4 kids were checked into the hospital, Donny’s car (their sole mode of transportation) was destroyed, and they now have no money for anything.  The worst of it?  A strange police officer has arrived at the hospital and has a few questions for Donny Chang. . .

Mrs Frieda’s Halfway Home Session 11 – Chaos

Last time on Mrs. Frieda’s, things started bad and got much, much worse. The long-awaited showdown with the MIB ended with the Eldritch horror in tatters, bullets inside Manny, and a mini-nuclear bomb going off deep in the ghetto of Troy.

On the plus side, Emma’s been rescued and Nele received medical attention. As the action recommences, the whole city is enraptured by the mushroom cloud hanging over the city.

Now, it’s up to George and crew to try and race into the fray and save their friends. Can the kids find each other in the midst of a city falling to pieces?
