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.
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.

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.
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.
Welcome to Doesville, a medium sized city in the middle of America – utterly ordinary, utterly boring. Or so it seems at first.
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.
Three young acolytes of the Paladins of Battle, zealous disciples of Ezekiel, have finished their four-and-a-half month grueling training and brain-washing period and are being dispatched on their first mission.
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.
