Road Trip Session 16 – The Eternal Glades (Part 2)

The kids spent the night in a fort constructed by the Monsters of the Glades.  Well, most of them did, at least.  It seems that Talia, Daniel, and Max disappeared during the middle of the night.

When the kids awake the next morning, they find that the Glades Monsters have departed, and also that the sky has grown darker.  They need to get the Glades Monsters out of here before they try anything.

Black water seems to be getting closer to them.   However, the kids know that they can seal the door to the Glades for a century.  Maybe they can seal it away?  But can they escape in time?

Whatever the kids are going to do, they need to do it quickly.

Call of Cthulhu – Just Vengeance

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.

School’s out for the summer, and wanderlust lives in the heart of teenagers – especially our protagonists. Unfortunately, their car has broken down along the way. Fortunately, they’re not stuck in the middle of nowhere.

Because Doesville is home to a chilling secret, revolving around the hot new online game that’s been sweeping the city. Agriculture Quest: it’s free, it’s fun, and it never, ever ends.

Mrs Frieda’s Session 20 – “If you’re a bird, I’m a bird”

Big things happened last session to George, Emma, Scott, and Manny. This session (unfortunately) shows what happened to August during the events in the last session.

It’s date night for August, and he’s got three oh so lovely rumor-smiths to take out to the movies. Nele is tagging along for some recon of the town.

The Drunk and the Ugly is especially proud to present this session, namely as it shows the psychological break-down of a gaming group after a highly dramatic session.

Mrs Frieda’s Session 16 – The Love Song of Dash Princely

It’s early morning on Friday and Frieda’s horrible, screeching voice is calling our protagonists to wake up, and get downstairs. It’s time to sign up for extra-curricular activities at school (since most of the kids would be prone to lighting fires, graffiti, and harassing the elderly if left to their own devices).

After some extreme coercion to get Manny and Emma onto the bus, the kids are set off on the longest bus ride ever. A prank war ensues, Nele calls Emma fat, and George beats Manny in Rock Paper Scissors. (Also there’s a news report about some serial killer, but no one listens to it.)

Important questions are raised during this session. Will Jingles ever get rid of creepy kid James? How many athletic teams can Nele be drafted for? Will George ever stop throwing Rock? And just who is this strange, constantly sparkling ladies-man named Dash Princely?
