Deadlands – The Crucible (Part 2)

Last session, all hell broke loose – the train derailed, the mother-lode of all dynamite charges went off, and hell literally broke loose when a demon came a’ rampaging.

Antares wakes up screaming in the clinic. Alexis wakes to have her burns and injuries treated by a man wearing a full preacher’s outfit. He turns out to be the local doctor. Luckily enough, Ant Blackwell blocked the blast, sparing her the brunt of pain.

They wake to find that mere minutes have passed since the “accident”. The preacher, working his prayer magic, fully heals Alexis and Ant.

This is only the first thing to be discovered about the U.S. Army Fort — the journey is far from over.

Ship of Fools Session 3 – Le Degradacion de le Memoria

Following some scandal and controversy upon The Scaly Wench, the crew of the Duquetimme has swapped the paranoid Avent Martell for a crew member with a different position entirely.  A variety of positions, one could say.

Leon Donnelly, the aggressor of the controversy, has new duties relating to this new crewmember.  Namely, making sure that she avoids all of the positions she had on her previous vessel, in addition to all of his regular navigation duties.

Up in the crow’s nest, away from all of these ship politics, Marshall Yaeger sees a land mass unknown by the navigation crew or any maps from the Vontais people.  It’s far too early to have reached the island of choice to the Poulin Trading Company.  What could possibly lie in store?

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.
