Once again, disturbing things are afoot in Mt. Pleasant, and it’s up to Tommy and Regina, with their new friends Dawn and Alisa, to set them right.
Kids are getting hurt, in very strange ways. A bully’s bike breaks while he’s riding down a steep hill. A girl has gone missing. And whatever is doing this is just getting started.
This session was written by Nate for the Little Fears scenario contest, and can be found (for free!) on the Little Fears Facebook page. Check it out, but don’t spoil yourself!
The New Xexorian organization, the Delayers of Death, have discovered an old, abandoned pre-cataclysm hospital, known only as “Rick’s.” While it may have sunk a few stories into the ground, it is still very structurally sound and holds a number of still-functioning facilities.
Julie Lagace arrives on the scene with the rest of the Delayers, along with a few mercenaries and a local sheriff. Before any of them have any time to meet up and talk about their times spent in the 3 months following the loss of their old town, they have to get to work fixing up the hospital.
Emma is having a dream. A very lovely dream: she’s on the roof, in George’s arms, kissing him before he climbs onto the back of Condor. Instead of flying away again, however, instead of winging away from Emma once more, blood starts coming out of his eyes.
And he starts laughing. Hard, loud laughter, both he and Condor laughing, before they melt into a dark shadow with green eyes. “Julie Williams,” it says. “8pm, Tuesday.” Then she wakes up, at 8am on a Tuesday morning.
Manny is having a dream. It’s a very lovely dream: he’s in a classy restaurant, a mix between a 50s diner and a smoking lounge, and he’s gorging himself on an incredible array of steak. It’s almost easy for him to ignore the laughter in the background, the shadows moving in strange ways, and the fact that the steak has become human flesh, familiar, tattooed human flesh.
It’s 8am on a Tuesday. Julie Williams is missing. A young girl named Emma has “gone on vacation.”
Odyn’s final plan has begun. He’s called in the last of his favors, and a horrible ritual is in progress. Unless the kids find a way to stop him, it will claim the lives of Julie and little Emma, and one other, someone very close to Emma Vaerbond’s heart.
Hartford, Connecticut: the North End. One of the most dangerous districts in one of the nastiest cities in America. It’s a grey, snowy morning in the middle of Winter 2010, and horrible things are afoot.
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.
Now a team of FBI investigators must attempt to track down the killer before they strike again and set off a wave of violence across the North End. Because Kevin Goff is not a simple victim of gang violence; he is a man with terrible secrets.
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.
