Mrs. Frieda’s Session 28 – “You Can’t Have Any Pudding!”

And the Frieda’s Season Premiere continues with Part 2: Middle School.

Spring Crescent is, on the surface, perfectly normal. Normal things happen, normal teachers conduct utterly normal classes, and no one gets sucked into a Lovecraftian alien’s spaceship.

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.
