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.

Enter the rival teams of Castle Investigations and Coen Investigations. The two teams are enigmatic duos of P.I.s, hard-boiled and ready to take on anything. As the session opens, they have high-tailed it to Montegut to crack the case of the missing Cajuns.

What awaits them is a town conspicuously clean, conspicuously uniform, and secretly deadly. Their journey will take them through the town and its secrets, and deep into the bayou, where a greater horror works.

Fear Itself – Delta Greenhouse


Delta City, Colorado. An abandoned ghost mining town in the hinterlands, it has recently become the subject of interest of the ghost investigators of GEIST (Ghost Enthusiasts Investigators and Science Team), a paranormal enthusiast cable television show.
The team consists of Anthony Brown: an oblivious department store worker who turned to GEIST for easy money and travel, David Santiago: a former investigative journalist in Detroit who had once been attached to a medic battalion in Iraq, and Nicky Hatch, a protective woman who joined GEIST to see if dogs can find ghosts. Along with their trusty cameraman, the team has set out to collect ghost readings, record abandoned houses at night and shout “Oh my god there are ghosts here” after every odd noise.

The team is sure that their only problem will be pretending to be sincere about paranormal activities.
