OH FINE HERE IS SOME ACTION, HOPE YOU CHOKE.
The student gets the riot helmet, shinguards, and is in charge of providing light with a powerful flashlight and record the events with a camcorder. He’s scared shitless, but I had convinced him that if he stuck close to me and drunkie he’d be fine.
We proceed into the building, which gets darker and creepier by the minute. Eventually we found brutish humanoids with featureless faces and bulky arms and upper bodies prowling the halls. Sometimes they just watched us, sometimes they closed in. Asshole wasted no time in wasting them. We had found a patient roster, so we knew where we were going. Soon, we began to run into creepier creatures, gaunt, chattering, with frail bodies, big heads and massive toothy mouths. The spent their time shuddering in fetal positions or clinging to ceilings. They didn’t seem outwardly hostile, but any we passed began to follow us just out of the reach of our light, backing away when we looked at them. Clearly the first ones were an allusion to the orderlies, and the second to the patients. Once in a while they fought, with an orderly bullying a patient creature, or several patients swarming and eating and orderly. It was beautifully fucked up and disturbing, and netted me hardened notches in violence and supernatural guages- probably not a good thing for my character’s long-term sanity but a lifesaver when actually in those situations.
Eventually we convinced Asshole in-character to stop shooting the Patients that followed us. They seemed quite pathetic, as if hoping the light would keep away the Orderlies, as it seemed to do. They simply walked to a far wall and leaned against it, bulky arms crossed, watching us with eyeless faces. Our destination was the fourth or fifth floor, I can’t quite recall. We made it to a stairwell, but found that the stairs to the next floor were collapsed halfway.
