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.

Call of Cthulhu – Deep in the Bayou (Part 2)

Last session, our protagonists witnessed the murder of one Patrick Whitaker by vicious unearthly monsters. Carrie Coen was driven briefly insane upon witnessing this murder, and her partner and Castle Investigations began separately digging into the case.

Vince and Mike backtracked Whitaker’s trail and found his car destroyed, in a manner as if his attackers had been enjoying the hunt.

Anthony Campbell, learned of the Owl’s Brotherhood and that the murdered Patrick Whitaker was on a mission to visit someone named “Mallard,” a “crazy old hermit” in the Bayou on their behalf.

As night descended, Castle Investigations took up residence in Montegut’s hotel, setting up an ad hoc darkroom. The best photo, crystal clear, showed two dog-monsters made of flesh and bone, the smaller tearing into Whitaker’s throat, the larger staring directly into the camera with a scary, dark intelligence.
