Mrs Frieda’s Halfway Home Session 23 – The Lighter

The kids survived the apocalyptic showdown with Odyn. Through a combination of Ty’s psychic powers, Emma’s resolve, and some last-minute help from Elder Dane, Odyn has been pummeled and the majority of his power broken.

George has been brought back to the Halfway Home (with some interesting new tattoos), and has recovered from the coma he fell into after Condor was possessed by Odyn. As soon as he wakes up, he tries to leave again.

George, the kids discover, is on a mission from Thunderbird, the great god-bird of legend. A long time ago, he completed what he refers to as “The Trials,” and gained Condor. He’s going through them again: he showed up back in Troy in order to find something at his mother’s old house.

The kids, however, having just gotten George back, aren’t keen to let him run off again. And while Odyn may have been beaten, there are still things going on behind the scenes. Things are still in motion.

Mrs Frieda’s Session 22 – Recovering the Satellites

After going into a fit of epileptic psychic backlash and nearly bringing Frieda’s crashing around down his ears, Ty wakes up in a hospital. It’s suspiciously quiet and empty as he makes his escape to return to the Halfway Home – it seems that Ty has someone watching over him.

Meanwhile, for the first time in a long time, the kids enjoy a morning where nothing in the house is breaking, or exploding, or being terrifying.

That is, until August gets a tip from his spider friends about the possible whereabouts of George. The manhunt will continue.

In Condor’s absence, Odyn has been putting plans into motion. He is calling in favors and carefully setting up his dominoes. And now he’s ready to push them over.

Mrs. Frieda’s Halfway Home Session 21 – The Manhunt

After the showdown with Butch, Frieda’s is once again locked down by a police investigation. In the aftermath, George has gone missing. The kids go to look for him and only find Odyn in his shadow cat form.

They learn from the eldritch horror that George has pulled a runner and taken off on the back of his Mayan God Bird.

With the power check of Condor out of the picture, Odyn is free to play. He’s got the whole Halfway House to work in. It’s up to Emma and the rest of the kids to find George – and Condor – and bring him back before Odyn gets out of control.

Road Trip Session 16 – The Eternal Glades (Part 2)

The kids spent the night in a fort constructed by the Monsters of the Glades.  Well, most of them did, at least.  It seems that Talia, Daniel, and Max disappeared during the middle of the night.

When the kids awake the next morning, they find that the Glades Monsters have departed, and also that the sky has grown darker.  They need to get the Glades Monsters out of here before they try anything.

Black water seems to be getting closer to them.   However, the kids know that they can seal the door to the Glades for a century.  Maybe they can seal it away?  But can they escape in time?

Whatever the kids are going to do, they need to do it quickly.

One Kevin Goff has been found brutally murdered in the remnants of his car. Something has literally torn him limb from limb in the night, leaving the evidence sitting in the middle of the street.
