Mrs Frieda’s Session 24 – The Fall of the House of Odyn

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.

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.

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.

Call of Cthulhu – Deep in the Bayou (Part 1)

Louisiana, 1926. A desperate group of Cajun residents around the small town of Montegut has posted a large reward for any information related to a series of missing persons. The victims were apparently snatched from their homes with little trace.

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.

They are tasked with finding and rooting out a “corruption of the soul” in the small village of Kassier. They find that the populace has fallen under an illness, and a strangely dressed merchant who has a persuasive tongue.

What the three don’t realize is that they have entered the domain of something truly horrible.
