    260 KB 'Ashcan' Pete Has Arrived in Arkham, MASS. storyteller !!QSvwrQMMkoH 01/02/12(Mon)18:27 No.17405102  
    The Story So Far: When a man has lived on the streets as long as you have, you see things. Things that would drive braver men screaming into the night. But you also learn to be quiet, to stay hidden, and to play stupid if all else fails. It also helps to have a good dog, like Duke, to scare away the meaner elements of the street.

    Unfortunately, this time, You can't hide, and there's nothing Duke can do to protect you. Your nightmares have been growing steadily worse over the last month, driving you all the way here... to Arkham. Even the whiskey isn't helping much anymore. Soon, you won't be able to sleep at all. Still, there are always opportunities for a man who knows how to stay quiet... as long as he isn't too picky.

    You walked in by rail just this morning, and spent the better part of the last hour washing off in Miskatonic River a few miles outside of town. You took a nap, to dry off in the sun and when you woke up Duke, your only companion all these years has disappeared. You set about to make lunch, and yet Duke had not returned by the time the sun began to set over the low foggy hills. It is approaching dark and you are still a few miles from town.

    'Irish Walking Stick'
    1/2 bottle whiskey
    The address of Martin Shaw, provided from letter by a locked up con in another state. You promised to deliver word of his troubles.
    The same Drifter, Stormy Shaw, promised you that there was always work on the docks in the Merchant Quarter.

    What do you do?

    You have just arrived at your picnic camp from an exhaustive search of the nearby woods. You have called yourself hoarse shouting for Duke, and all to no avail. You have a bedroll, a woolen blanket and an old greasy bit of tarp you put up when the rain gets really bad.

    You have not slept in three days, preferred to spend your nights deep in thought, talking to Duke and playing on your guitar.

    Hmmm, start a fire then and get dinner on the burn. Duke should show up before long to eat. It's not like him to be gone so long.
    >> storyteller !!QSvwrQMMkoH 01/02/12(Mon)18:36 No.17405223
    You easily start up a cooking fire using dry tinder and easily available kindling nearby. You have to enter the woods to find suitable wood to really burn long for warmth.

    You still have three lbs of bacon and two cans of beans from doing night watchman work in Seattle all those months back.

    As you sit contemplating your choices, a strong wind has begun to whip up as the setting sun pushes cold air swooping down the ravines and canyon lands. You are beginning to shiver. What do you do?

    Your fire begins to die as the fuel is consumed. It is very cold out after dark and you need to get that fire re-fueled and get under your heavy blanket soon. And yet, the thought of Duke all alone out there, hungry, maybe lost, maybe hurt. You are paralyzed by indecision.

    Duke is a smart dog, he'll come home eventually.

    He also has the advantage for being covered in fur, which we do not have. We need fuel pronto.

    Scrounge the nearby area for flammable objects, add those to the fire. Eat bacon.

    You quickly set to work rebuilding your little fire as the wind picks up. Within ten minutes you have a nice heavy burn going and are already pulling coals and cinders aside to cook your dinner over. You stamp life back into your feet and slap it back into your hands.
    >> storyteller !!QSvwrQMMkoH 01/02/12(Mon)18:58 No.17405512
    After cooking the bacon in your old battered iron skillet you enjoy some whiskey from the bottle, letting the warmth burn into your chest. You wrap into your blanket and prepare to wait out the long cold night. Playing your guitar helps, as does sipping more whiskey.

    Suddenly, with a very increased sense of panic, you realize a man is standing not four feet from you, near the fire. As you gaze up, you can see that he is wearing exotic blue and green robes! He was a strange hat on his head, a hat like the pope wears but green, cleft at the top. He bends down over you, his face coming very close to yours.

    "I can see your fate, Peter." the man says to you. What do you do?

    You crook your head back and gaze up into his eyes steadily. "Muh fate.... muh fate is muh own, stranger." The man's eyes narrow and he draws back to his full height quickly withdrawing from you.

    "You will die outside, cold and alone Peter. You will have no fine town house to hang your battered hat. You will have no fine children to tug on your greasy beard. You will have no fine wife to sing to you all of the days of the year. You will die col,d and alone surrounded by strangers who don't even know your name. I see you, Peter."

    The strange man smiles at this, and nods approvingly. "And yet, it does not have to be this way, Peter. There are ways which I can show you, ways you can cheat fate and rewrite your entire life. You can be the true master of your fate. Tell me, Peter have you heard of Father Dagon? If you come with me to our church, we can show you so much more."

    First time I ever played Arkham Horror, this was my character. Through sheer salty stubbornness, I rebelled against party cooperation with all their talk of "plans" and nonsense, only to consistently save their asses whenever trouble started. At the end I had all but one gate token, a mess of clues, two shotguns, and a blessing. Every portal I went through only had good things in it. Money, guns, and glory. I ended up wrestling the boss to death.

    I refuse to play any other character to this day.

    The man smiles, and he claps his hands twice. Suddenly, from the bushed you hear a yelp and a bark! It's Duke, you know his voice anywhere! You leap to your feet and he comes running from outside the firelight wagging his tail excitedly.

    The strange man says "There are so many things which I can do, Peter. Things which I can teach you how to do."

    As the man talks you think you overhear the sound of breaking twigs from the direction where Duke came form, maybe another animal? Maybe a person?

    Your companion was lost and wandering, Peter. There is nothing in those bushes. I only chose to guide him on the right path. I sense that you yourself, are also lost, lost and wandering. There is nothing in those bushes. Peter, if you come back with me to my church, we can get out of this cold, bitter wind and warm our feet by my fire. There is nothing in those bushes. Peter, will you come and testify to the word of Father Dagon?"

    Duke is unharmed, darting around your legs and between them and nuzzling your hand with his snout.

    Far overhead between the clouds you can see the myriad of stars and constellations. Remy was right, you see shooting stars burning through the sky all night long, until finally your eyes close and you relax enough to sleep.

    You wake up on the main battle line of the Strythian 4th Division. All around you are dead men, and worse things even. You see your comrades in arms, the finest and bravest of the Strythian 4th all around you. It is a lull in the battle and men are cleaning weapons and making large pots of soups. You urinate into a ditch and slop through the mud towards the nearest pot. You are wearing leather and woolen armor stiffened by the finest Druids of the Nine Islands and you carry your longs sword clutched in your hand like normal.

    As you approach a pot, you can see a human arm and what looks like a thigh cooking merrily away. The aroma fills your nostrils. The 4th ran out of provisions two months ago. After a period of no food, General Briggat ordered the mass cooking of corpses that day and every day.

    As you spoon in mouthfuls of hearty human broth you hear the war whoops of the Grenden Rebels! They are charging! As if on cue, Strythian horns blow from all around you. You snarl and leap up the battlements, charging forwards with your brothers, always forwards. The Grenden Rebels have made a compact with one of the Dark Gods and their ranks are bolstered with blasphemous things, nightmare entities all tooth and claw and malice.

    it is a good day to die, you reckon, but an even finer day for murder.

    Then, hours later, exhausted and covered in putrid ichor, you again return to your ditch to sleep. Tomorrow will be the same, the Grenden will not yield so early into the campaign season. It has been endless war for you, these last 33 years.

    You set off across the field along the rushing Miskatonic. You pass by small farms as you walk and then eventually you come to a fence which leads right up to the river bank. You could easily wade around it or hop over it. Beyond is a dilapidated farm, though crops still grow in the field. It might take an hour or more to go around and find the road, while avoiding private property. You had seen several 'Trespassers Will be Shot Twice" signs on fenced property.

    Do you circumnavigate the fence or go around to the road?

    You easily hop the fence, which Duke is able to shimmy under. You see in the field by a barn the skinniest cows you have ever seen in your life. It makes no sense, the grass is so green and lush here and yet there they are, emaciated. You walk on by the cows and upon further examination you realize they have metal rods in their skin with wooden nobs on the end! Something has been bleeding these cows dry!

    You are crushed again by indecision. These cows have strange metal rods affixed in their skin, yet they seem well fed otherwise. On the other hand, it's none of your business and you're on private property...

    It would be a shame to get arrested on your way to tell Mary-belle about her brother's arrest and approaching execution.

    Very well. As you moove on from this mooving sight you easily cross the farm and hop another fence to safety. Looking back, no one saw you. You and Duke continue on together, passing several boys fishing under a willow tree. The boys look clean and nice and wave as you walk by. One of them asks "Hey Mister, did you just come from the Whately farm or what???" You shrug noncommittally and walk towards Arkham proper. You can see smoke stacks from chimneys first, followed by gently sloping tile roofs. You are clearly on the docks, and you can see several tall wooden ships in the harbour. A gang of longshoremen are unloading one of the massive ships. Across the way, you can see the "The Rope and Anchor" which promises 'Warm meals, Cold Drinks'.

    Duke is running around on the dock chasing seagulls from post to post.

    What do you do? You don't know these streets and only have an address.

    The harbor place is a at full swing and all the men look very busy. You get some wary glances as you walk past and the foreman is shouting orders at the gang or working men. You see a harbor office and approach it. A man comes out to greet you, wearing a bowler hat and a suit coat. "Yes, what are you looking for, roughneck?"

    "You cannot go to French Hill like that. Deputy McClaine would thump you tool good. I suggest you go on by Ma's Boarding House and she might could get you squared away. Best of luck to you, fellow. Might could get some coin playing that country banjo you got over your shoulder as well."

    Since you don't know where Ma's Boarding House is, and the day is still young you decide to enter the Rope and Anchor. Inside, some locals are busy cooking up some fish stew in the fireplace. After eying you warily they invite you over to join them. They are mostly old drunks, bar flies. Your kind of people. Whiskey is 5 cents and good whiskey is 10 cents. The fish soup is free and hearty and the matron slops out some of the mornings pork trimmings and potatoes into a platter for Duke "As long as he stays outside with his fleas."

    The matron, Deborah Halister, agrees to pay you 50 cents a day if you play once a night for six hours and any tips you get are yours. She directs you to Ma's Boarding house and even presses the first nights pay of 50 cents into your hands.

"We ain't that kind of town, trouble enough with gypsies and such, we don't need you out there hungry. You find work or you move on, do we agree on that much?"

    He tips your shoulder with the cudgel, causing you to turn towards him. Duke begins to growl low and puts his ears back, baring his teeth.

Either way, you shouldn't be pouring the hard stuff before noon much either, get me?" The deputy tips his hat and walks away with in a professional march.

    Somewhat confused as to what exactly just happened, you begin your long walk to Ma's Boarding House. On the way, you take in Arkham proper, the cobblestone streets, unlit gas lamps, the fine houses. Arkham people bustle around you, coaches going thither and yon clop clop clopping down the lanes. It feels all so closed in.

    With some happiness you arrive at a large two story Inn proudly labeled "Ma's". There are two old men sitting out front on the porch smoking on fat pipes. They ignore you as you walk on inside. Almost immediately, you are set upon by a woman you guess to be Ma, large and round, with a giant bosom and rosy cheeks. With her hair in a beehive she quickly takes your coat and bag in her hands. "Yes, yes welcome! Come in, come in let's get you situated. The fare is 25 cents on the day breakfast and dinner included. We have laundry service on Wednsdays and Sundays. No company after nine, no female non-relative companionship under any circumstances. We are Christians here, sir. We run a Christian home."

    She walks you down a well lit hallway with wooden floors to a rather nice, though cozy, room. The bed is comfortable looking if shabby, with several well worn quilts covering it. There is an oil lamp, and a chest near the bed as well as a single chair near the window. She throws the window open and sunlight pours in. She also directs you to a low end table and a strange looking device on top of it. An Emmerson 5 tube bedroom radio!

    She turns it on and some hot new tinny rag time blares out the speakers, filling the room.

    "Your name sir?" and she holds out her hand.

    "We serve at 5:30, Pete. You say you're going to French Hill?" Ma eyes your garb appraisingly. "Well, well. A happy reunion, I don't doubt. Let me see if I can get you fixed up with some proper clothes then, men are always leaving their clothes in my house I tell you that for free. You get settles in here and I'll be right back in a twinkle. If you like, I'll just go ahead and wash up those old clothes of your when I get a chance by the fire."

    This song comes on after.

    After a short time, Ma returns with a pair of slacks, a nice collared shirt and a sports coat. While not exactly in fashion, the clothes are well made and suitable you reckon. Ma also insists, absolutely insists on cutting your hair and beard outside by the porch. She introduces you to Jasper and Allan, the two smoking men. One is absently stroking Dukes mane. They are silent when you come out and as Ma begins to cut your hair the silence becomes awkward.

    Jasper agrees to wake you for breakfast and wishes you the best in your endeavors for the day. You set out for the long march uphill to the aptly named French Hill quarter of Arkham, MASS. The streets are very well paved and kept almost clinically clean. The boulevards are wide and gently sloped and you enjoy the fresh breeze under the trees. You pick an apple from a public tree as you pass and it is delicious. As you pass a particular house, almost hidden back in the shadows of overgrowth, you stop suddenly.

    You see, then feel the house breathe. The walls and ceiling actually appear to contract and expand as the house sucks in air through the windows and doors. In, in, in, in and then oooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuttttttt in a rush. You feel suddenly dizzy and light-headed, shocked and terrified with what you saw. You hear a voice, the houses voice say "Don't wait, don't wait. Come inside, Peter."

He is extremely unnerved by the house and much to your relief you realize that your destination is only about a block away. You quickly arrive at Mary-belle Shaw's house, a two story mansion with a large wrought iron gate blocking off a private drive way. Several large mastiffs trot unconcerned on the lawn.

    Because it was the Order men who chased out Cameron, all those long years ago. It's the Order men which run the town, though not all of us folk agree. He stops and turns back.

After asking around, you find out that hiring begins at 8:00 am and work is all day or until dusk or so. Wages are $3.00 a day, or $18 a week if you sign up for the week.

They must have gotten past the vanguard.... oh no. You see beyond the fields of dead a great grey ooze flowing across the land. Nanite swarms, where had these primitive backwoods fools gotten nanite swarms???? The horns blew loudly now, droning across the plains and hills.

    You activate your psychic-resonance shield and pray to all the gods, old and new that it works. The swarm breaks upon the Strythian battle lines. Thralls and enlisted men were the first to go, atomically disassembled by the tiny machines. Then darkness covers you and you grit your teeth against the fear of consumption, of being torn apart atom by atom and absorbed into the collective for spare parts but it does not come. You are spared and then a sudden light as a small atmospheric EMP is detonated by Colonial Strythian orbiters. As one, the nanite machines die a brain and body death and fall from the sky.

    You bound again to the battlements and see a sea of grey barren of organic molecule. You and the officers who were spared by the psyche-shields raise your swords as one, cry loyalty to the Empire and bound across the great grey sea to victory.

    You spend the rest of the day clearing out pockets of Grenden rebel forces, most hideously warped and altered by their contact with the outer beings. Most fight like banshees, with hollow, stocky limbs and fibrous skins. They fight beyond endurance, beyond human tolerance for pain. They howl their madness into your face as you slice them one by one, come and come. Some mewl and cry for mercy with tentacled limbs sloughing skin like water to pool in pale piles of tainted flesh and wasted form. They, unable to control the form of their flesh, trapped ever changing, ever in pain.

    You shut off your mind, at some point, become a machine born of swinging blade and shuffling feet. The horror of it all, the waste of it all, the hopeless advance of the crawling chaos shut out of your mind. And finally, peacefully, a belly full of Grenden militia supply rations and not human flesh at all, you sleep and dream of war.

    You grab a bottle of whiskey off the bar and chug it until your head stops pounding. The bar is full of patrons, all looking your way. In your new clothes, with your hair cut and your shave, guitar clutched over your shoulder you figure you cut quite the image. You strum the guitar quickly and play the Coo-coo Bird by a man you had met the last summer, Clarence Ashley. It is the first thing that comes to mind.

    Deborah already gave you the first days pay. When you arrive at the boarding house, all lights are off except for the porch light. You decide to take Duke into the room, and you find a pitcher of water and light fare of bread and cheese waiting for you in your room. The Emmerson radio is on low, and it's a news segment. They are talking about the meteor shower and some crazy Dutch astronomer who has been talking about seeing huge objects in orbit. You sleep, and blissfully, wonderfully, you have no dreams. You awake to a knocking at your door and the smell of cooking. Bacon, coffee, eggs. "Hey, Pete! Time to hear the good word, are you up in there?"

    Jasper is dressed up in his finest, an old tweed suit and fedora. He is in high spirits as he leads you out into the day. He sings a rhyme while you walk. "The Lords of perfection have assembled, and to rejoice! The year of Jubilee! And it shall come to pass in that time, the sound of a cry from the Gate of the Fishes, a howling from the second quarter, and a great commotion from the hills."

    He leads you down Church street and you see many, many others assembling as well, filing into the Esoteric Order of Dagon chapel. It seems harmless enough, you think. Not nearly so bad as those Southern Baptists anyhow.
    >> storyteller !!QSvwrQMMkoH 01/03/12(Tue)01:33 No.17409463
    As you file into the chapel with the rest of the town, Jasper continues to recite the words, and then is joined by others around you in the litany. "And the Priests of Dagon will come again: The Sons of God will have intercourse with the daughters of Man. And they took Dagon and they set him in his Place, Re-establishing the ancient worship: Bringing forth the Mighty Ones which are from Eternity."

    The litany continues as you cross the threshold into the church. You are no longer charmed from your wish upon a star. You feel the life sucked from your soul as you are ushered deeper into the chapel, a gloomy, dank and dark place filled with slick wet surfaces and grinning, chanting mouths.

    "All who enter the house of Dagon are under the seal that is Eleven! And they shall adore the Head of Dagon,
    Chanting with the voice of charmers, as they leap across the threshold in the silence of the night. ba’bethu l’Ashdodu yaqom Baal-Dagon!

    You see this massive statue on the Altar, and then a man in green robes whom you recognize as Remy Sanford, approaches the altar. The crowd is chanting in unison now, "Ba’bethu l’Ashdodu yaqom Baal-Dagon! In his house at Ashdod lord Dagon will rise!"

    >"Ba’bethu l’Ashdodu yaqom Baal-Dagon! In his house at Ashdod lord Dagon will rise!"

    And then, the crowd descends into humming, a deep, low, resonant drone of humming. From the rear of the altar, you see someone, no, some thing, shamble out into the light of the candlebras. It stands near eight feet tall and is wrapped in blue robes. It is carrying a large fish and in it's claws it rips this fish into sections.

    Remy Sanford leans his head back and shouts to the rafers ""And the Priests of Dagon will come again: The Sons of God will have intercourse with the daughters of Man. And they took Dagon and they set him in his Place, Re-establishing the ancient worship: Bringing forth the Mighty Ones which are from Eternity."
    >> storyteller !!QSvwrQMMkoH 01/03/12(Tue)01:48 No.17409554
    And then, silence settles over the chapel. The.... thing is quite real and just stands there, munching on sections of fish. You try to look away and look at it at the same time. It scans the crowd with it's bulbous orb eyes. Remy Sanford begins his sermons;

    "“Dagon will come again, as will mighty sorceries for the
    mighty beasts of the deep have been unleashed, and they
    have gone about their pathway of destruction..."

    "It is possible to identify ‘the Mighty Ones which are from
    eternity’ more completely, and to establish that they are “mighty
    beasts of the deep”. Referring to Genesis 6,4, Kenneth Grant
    has identified these entities as being “Typhonian Teratomas
    such as those described by Berossus in his account of the
    creation. Of these teratomas the dragon and the ape were the
    archetypes.”. In the form in which it has survived, the
    description of these ‘wondrous creatures by Berossus is rather
    wild and impressionistic, but the Babylonian recension of the
    Creation Epic from which it was derived, is more precise.
    According to this, Tiamat, the primordial dragon of the chaos
    of waters, gave birth to:

    “...Monster-Serpents, Sharp of tooth, unsparing of fang.
    With venom for blood she has filled their bodies.
    Roaring dragons she has clothed with terror,
    Has crowned them with haloes, making them like gods”.
    Nine of these chaos dragons are then named, but:
    “Withal eleven of this kind she has brought forth”.

    This description of course, is from the point of view of the
    priests of Bel-Marduk, the god whom the Creation Epic was
    styled to glorify. It is he who slays Tiamat and defeats her
    offspring. As to their fate..."
    >> storyteller !!QSvwrQMMkoH 01/03/12(Tue)01:50 No.17409571
    Sanford continues onward.

    “Now the eleven creatures which Tiamat had made... Whose weapons he had shattered, which he had tied to his foot: Of these he made statues and set them up at the Gate of Apsu saying: “Let it be a token that this may never be forgotten!” Several of these dragons became identified with various constellations, such as Hydra, Sagittarius, Aquarius and Capricorn.

    "And now the Gate of Apsu has been opened again, and the
    restoration of Dagon will release the dragons of the deep, which
    are the essence of all “Babylonish abominations”. Lines 20-25, ‘all who enter the house of Dagon’ (1 Samuel 5,5), has the value of 583, which is the gematria of AChD OShR, Eleven. The disciples of Dagon have knowledge of the rising of the eleven chaos dragons, and also, perhaps, an awareness of the words of the Goddess Nuit, when she declares that: “My number is 11, as all their numbers who are of us.”
    >> storyteller !!QSvwrQMMkoH 01/03/12(Tue)01:53 No.17409582
    The crowd is rapt with attention as Sanford continues his sermon.

    "RASh DGVN, ‘the head of Dagon’, shares the common gematria of 564, with QVL MLChShIM, ‘the voice of charmers’, and DMMTh HLILH, ‘the silence of the night’. The devotees adore the head of Dagon because he has been restored to his lordship of the Place, or Space, which is MQVM, Maqom. By its number of 186, Maqom is to be identified with QVPh, Qoph, meaning ‘an ape’, or ‘the back of the head’; the magickal centre within the Cerebellum that is sometimes referred to as the ‘dragon brain’. Also, 186 is the value of APQH, ‘a fortress’; PVOL, ‘action, deed’ or ‘acquisition’; and
    in the Greek, of Golgotha, ‘the place of the Skull’ - and the
    13 Disciple of Dagon place of the crucifixion, or Crossing.

    "Now BITh DGVN, ‘the House of Dagon’ is 475, which is the number of BGVLGLThA, ‘In Golgotha’8. And after Saul was slain in battle by the Philistines, the text of 1 Chronicles 10,10 declares: “And they put his armour in the house of their gods, and fastened his head in the temple of Dagon”. The word used for “head” is GLGLTh, ‘skull’. Moreover, in the form GLGLThA, the word “skull” has the same number of 467 as KThVLHV, one of the Hebrew spellings of Cthulhu, and there is an Akkadian word ‘Kutallu’ that has the meaning of ‘the back of the head; rear part; behind’ 9.
    All of this reveals Dagon to be a Lord of the Deep and a Guardian of its Threshold, across which access may be gained to the abyss of waters, the outer spaces - the spaces between the stars where the mighty ones dwell in eternity. Microcosmically, the threshold to these primordial spaces of consciousness is located in the Qoph centre, and it is traversed in alignment with the light of the Will in the Ajna chakra and the vibration of the Word in the Visuddha chakra.
    >> storyteller !!QSvwrQMMkoH 01/03/12(Tue)01:54 No.17409593
    "Finally, in lines 26 and 27, the chant is given:

    'Ba’bethu l’Ashdodu yaqom Baal-Dagon. Constructed with mantric rhythm in mind, this is reasonably correct Hebrew: BB1ThV LAShDVDV IQVM BOL-DGVN, literally:

    ‘In his house, at his stronghold, he will rise, lord Dagon’. Baal-Dagon has the number of 165, equating it with the phrase LHVDIOM, ‘he will make them know’."

    And the crowd chants "He will make them Know."

    >"He will make them Know."

    >"He will make them Know."

    >"He will make them Know."

    >"He will make them Know."

    Oh no, the thing seems to have a lock on you, and walk right up to you. The humming continues as it approaches and you realize that it is nearly eight feet tall. The stench of rotting fish and sea water overwhelms you. You retch with nausea and something inside you screams to run, some primal part of your lizard brain screeches at you to flee.

    Boom. As the thing approaches you, your instincts kick in and you reach instinctively for the only item you carry, the bone flute from Ma's Boarding House. The creature stops short and cocks it's head at you. Those nearest to you stop humming in confusion. You play the first thing which comes to mind, and it sounds like this:


    The sound crashes out of the front of the flute, seeming to resonate louder and louder as you blow and pluck. The things mouth opens to scream but instead it turns and runs directly away, mowing down members of the Esoteric Order of Dagon in it's path. The humming stops as all present fall to their knees in pain. You feel as if a great pair of wings were beating upon the air, you are playing the music of the spheres, you are playing the tones of the Elder Gods and all will tremble before it's import. As the thing nears the far altar it stops suddenly, jerking forwards on shaky legs. The thing begins to convulse, and then to shake mightily before collapsing dead on the floor.

    There is a clear path to the heavy front doors, most of the cult members are prone on the ground.

    Changed into your old clothes, you kiss Ma on the cheek and hug her warmly. "I'll be leaving you now, Ma but thanks for everything. I'm off to the docks I think, to catch a ship back to California. Best of luck."

    "Oh my, well it's a shame to see you go Pete. May the wind ever be at your back!" says Ma somewhat startled.

    You take off through the streets at a frantic pace, and that's when you start hearing the dogs and cats. The barking and barking, the screeching. it seemed as if every animal in Arkham was going mad but Duke. You continue on, noticing more and more people out on lawns remarking on the strange apparition in the sky. You have just passed the border into French Hill, marked by Elm trees, when you hear a siren cut through the sound of cats and dogs. "Hey there, fella!" you hear the familiar voice of Deputy McClaine. "Just where in the hell do you think you're going?"

    What do you do?

    Duke springs into action as the Deputy approaches you with the raised cudgel. You have seen Duke fight rail busters, hobos and dogs. You have seen him turn wolves and bears from the fight and he attacks Deputy McClain with equal savageness. He grabs the Deputies arm in his jaws and shakes powerfully. The officer shrieks and screams in pain. You notice he drops the keys to his Deputy's Wagon, parked just feet away.

    You club the Deputy with your stout blackthorn club and hear a meaty thud as the deputy goes silent and stops moving. Duke lets go immediately and barks. You see several people nearby, watching in horror as you dive into the vehicle and turn the key. That much you know from the few movies you have seen. You crank a few levers and hit the various peddles a few times and the old crate starts moving at a rapid pace down the lane!

    Duke runs and jumps in just as you turn the corner and you see, sitting on the passengers seat a very serviceable five shot police revolving chamber pistol! You arrive at the front gate of the Shaw residence in mere minutes, and the man you saw earlier is sitting on the lawn in a low chair under an awning . There is a young, beautiful woman sitting with him in a summer dress.

    As they see the police vehicle stop they stand and the man begins to approach as do the five large mastifs.

    Okay, let me run with this so far.

    Mary-belle and Roger approach you uncertainly. Roger gestures towards you and says "My god, Peter have you stolen a police lorry? Mary-belle this is Peter, whom brought word of your brother's demise."

    Before she can introduce herself you intterupt. "Excuse me miss, I know this looks mighty odd right now, but so is this whole town and the people in it."

    You tell them quickly how you were brought unwittingly into an inhuman ceremony at the Chapel. You comment on the comet which they were watching and tell them that it is your belief that the E.:O.:D.: is using is as a marker for some heinous ritual. You tell them that you killed some sort of monster in the church with holy music from a flute, which you show to them now. And you tell them the law is after you and that they think you killed a person.

    "But it weren't no person, miss Mary-belle. It weren't no kind o' person at all. Can you tell me who Remy Sanford is, miss?

    At that, Mary-belle and Roger share a quick look. "Oh my word, it's true what Abner was trying to tell me last night. He came by, shortly after you left and tried to warn us to leave the town!" says Mary-belle, throwing open the gates. Quickly, drive that thing inside and we must pack!"

    Roger grabs your shoulder and gives it a squeeze. "We've been onto the E.:O.:D.: for years now, Peter. They drove away the true Man of this house and they tried to drive my poor Mary away as well. We've been in contact with the FBI, I'll have you know.

    Roger and Mary-belle run towards the house while you drive the Deputy's Wagon inside the gates. The mastifs and Duke stay near the front of the property feeling each other out. Almost immediately, Roger comes running out with a large breastplate wrapped in cloth and hands it to you. "Stow this in the trunk, Peter. It may just have what we need!"

    As Mary-belle and Roger rush out with large trunks a sonic boom splits the atmosphere above Arkham, MASS. You are all thrown flat as a force of energy strikes you and tosses you against the earth. You look up and Mary-belle is staring into your eyes, afraid and about to cry. You can see blood seeping from her ears and nose. You stumble dazedly to your feet and look behind at something truly astounding.

    The metor has split as it entered the relatively dense atmosphere of the earth. The entire sky is lit with a corana of blue flames and you can not hear a single thing. A sudden flash nearly blinds you and then you see something fragile, ovoid, almost like an egg come smashing into the earth a few miles out of town. You feel the rumble in your bones and meat as the ground vibrates briefly and you see stones and chunks of earth the size of people flung high, high into the sky.

    You feel a clawing at your back and you turn to see Mary-belle screaming into your face. She is gesturing frantically to the back of the house, where Roger stands waving madly.

    You sweep Mary-belle into your arms. She weighs almost nothing, she is so fragile seeming against your rough hands. Duke is cowering under the Deputy's Wagon and looks to be in extreme pain. Blood is pouring from the sides of his head. You notice the windows of the Wagon are shattered. Duke looks up and sees you, He gives a wag of his tail and limps towards you at a galloping, lops-sided gate. As you begin to move, you also experience an intense vertigo and the ground seems to wave and heave beneath your feet, likely a result of the damage to your inner ear.

    You jog around the side of the house and Roger is gesturing down at attic stairs. You begin to descend, looking back for Duke just as the first car sized piece of bedrock comes hurtling out of the sky and landing just yards away. You turn and quickly descend into the dark.

    You set Mary-belle on the couch but she seems reluctant to let you go. You sit beside her and realize she is frantic, sobbing uncontrollably. Roger presses a glass into your hand, and tips one to Mary-belle. You can sense he is trying to say something, but all you can hear is that horrible ringing.

    You turn up the glass and begin to drink gladly. The front of your beard is wet, maybe from Mary-belles's tears. You wipe your hand over it and it comes back bloody. Further inspection reveals you are also bleeding from your ears and nose, though it seems to have stopped.

    Your head hurts like hell. You know the police were on their way to aid Deputy McClain, you know they will hang you for murder if the cult doesn't get your first. The sky just exploded and it's raining rocks.

    Excellent. After a few minutes you manage to be able to communicate by shouting with Roger. Mary-belle is still pretty much catatonic at this point. You tell him, haltingly ""Roger, I t'aint the slightest of a fuck what is happening, but you mentun'd that there t'was somethin' on that there plate which might just pull our collective asses outta da fire.

    Roger listens and seems to comprehend. He nods his head frantically and rushes outside. He returns seconds later carrying an antique copper breastplate. It is styled with roses and it has this symbol across the front of it.

    Okay, you work out the plan of driving yourself into jail. Mary-belle began to come around when the breast plate showed up and is now taking an active roll in things. As you head outside the landscape appears changed. From the luxury high atop French Hill you can see the damage which has been wrought on Arkham. Rocks and debris dot the landscape and some houses have been taken out altogether. Trees lie knocked down in a horrible pattern out not far from where you were camping last night. Perhaps this is what Remy Sanford was doing in the woods last night. Roger shouts "We had better take the bicycles, Peter!"

    So is the plan to drive the wagon into town or take the bikes?

    Any chance 'Ol Pete recognizes that symbol? Because I sure as hell don't. Keep it with us I guess. With any luck it will slow down the end times a bit.

    As for the police station:

    Wince "Roger, I kno' beggas can't be choosas, but NOT goin' to jail was the main reason I came this way. Now, I t'aint one to run from a fight, but there better not be another option we're missin'. On the upside, the flat-foots should be plenty occupied dealin' with the sky fallin' on their heads to notice me. If we're a-doin' this, I will be needin' a better disguise and a clean shave, time permitten' of course"

    Also, might want to try playing a quick tune over the police radio and see what happens. Best case is all the corrupted ones drop dead.

    "One more thing Roger, I might try playin' a quick tune before we reach tha' sta'shun. Might buy us a bit more time before we go chargin' in like a set of fools"

    Roger shouts "Good idea! Come on!"

    He takes you inside and quickly outfits you with a gentleman's wardrobe and cap. Mary-belle attacks your head with some sweet smelling waxy looking stuff and a comb. Fine dancing shoes and a dapper coat with it and you appear almost an entirely different person. Roger takes the shillelagh and hands you a thick oak walking cane with a Bear-head handle.

    As you are preparing, Roger shares his concerns.

    "Peter, I don't think just the auditory intonations will be enough to drive out what plagues our town. I fear that Sanford has opened a portal of communication and called something unto us all. I fear we must confront it with both the sound and the breastplate! Peter, you and Mary-belle must play the sound while I confront the creature. Or vice versa!"

    Awww yeah, free form jazz jam session at the slammer, Mary-belle starin' holes in the walls while she thumps her flaccid hand on the Ancient Babylonian hate plate, agent Roger McArtifact Dealer on the Dagon death blow dealin' dealie hootin' and tootin' up a storm NO Lovecraftian Horror can resist, and of course our star Ashcan Pete on the guitar, strummin' and singin' his heart out to this Ancient slayin' beat, while his faithful pooch Duke the Deputy Dinger and Ringer howls along...

    TONIGHT at the Arkham jail, broadcastin' the smooooothest (and just plain deadliest) waves in town

    Mary-belle chimes in, the first words she has spoken "We all saw it, plain as day. That.... that vile egg came down. We all saw it and it's out there right now, hatching. That's where we need to go, after we broadcast the sound over the police emergency announcement system.

    "I figured as much. It neva' is simple. Well, we'll 'ave to just play it by ear when we get there, I reckon. No sense worryin' 'bout the specifics now"
    >> storyteller !!QSvwrQMMkoH 01/03/12(Tue)04:47 No.17410796
    You pick up the radio transmitter and hand it to Mary-belle. As she clicks it on, you begin to play.


    As you finish, you are unsure if it had any affect but all three of you appear much more calm and reserved. Your spirits are certainly lifted.

    We don't know enough to plan everything out but i think the generalized plan is to amplify the flute by playing it on the jail radio and so on while Roger does the crazy thing and confronts it with the breastplate. It's a crazy plan but it might just work.

    Well this was very fun but I really have to go to bed.

    Is this a one shot or are you going to do more?

    If it is a one shot, I can see you just starting over with a new investigator or doing an expansion and it going swimmingly.

    Arm ourselves to the teeth. I am guessing if they are supplying the whiskey, there are guns to protect their assets. Try and keep it concealed, if possible. Throw it in a bag or satchel we can carry on the bikes. First we need to head to the police station and try to get on the emergency station. Hopefully they are running around with like a chicken with their heads cut off right now. Have Roger take us through the backstreets as much as possible. If the station is swarmed with cops, we will adjust our plan accordingly once we get there. Take a couple bottles of whiskey and turn them into impromptu incendiary devices. I know that one house that tried to eat us could use a good burning and it will pull the remaining cops from the station. If we need to really get their attention, the Church will do nicely as a Roman candle impersonation. Tackle the egg after we have finished our attempt at being a jukebox hero.

    Alternately, if the whiskey is too watered down to work, siphon gas out of the cars and put that in said whiskey bottles. If there are no empty whiskey bottles, I am sure we can make some. Quickly.

    Okay, you load into the car and Roger begins driving down French Hill at a slow clip to avoid the debris now littering the area. Neighbors and towns folk seem to be standing around listlessly, confused and shocked. You pass by a tent where people are bringing the wounded. You pass by a Deputy patrol car but it's empty, the Deputy likely inside the house which is shattered with holes. You begin to pass by the area where the Dagon chapel is located and you notice a large, large crowd of people in front of the chapel. Roger pulls up, which makes you nervous but he quickly assures you that no one would possibly recognize you now.

    Remy Sanford is shouting to the crowd

    "...on of our very own sons! Taken! Taken by outsiders! Taken by those vile and evil outsiders who we invite into our place of worship! Now, sadly, the boys father could not be here today but his poor mother is. Come up here, Sandra."

    A blonde woman is led onto the chapel steps, crying softly.

    "One of our very own, taken by sorcery most foul! Bobby Sanford has been taken by the Drifter known to dubious company as "Ashcan" Pete, a man I myself gave a blanket to only last night." Sanford lets the sentence trail off for affect. "He is a vile, dangerous heathen and he must answer for his crimes! He has attacked us, us the righteous and faithful and he will answer for his crimes. Go out on this jubilant day and bring this Drifter here to me, and to the mother of poor lost Bobby Sanford. Dagon commands it!"

    Don't kill yourself OP. It is very, very late and I need to sleep anyway. We can always pick up tomorrow when more people are awake. Just name a time and add this to the archives at suptg so people can get caught up. We might get lucky and be able to use this same thread.

    As the crowd leaps into activity, Roger pulls nonchalantly buy and pulls up into the deserted police parking lot. You can see city hall in the next lot over. "Let's go, he said. Why they haven't activated the damn thing already I have no idea."

    Do you go inside the police station?

    Yeah, this is a good idea. I don't want to cut it short or anything through weariness. Okay, I'm calling it for tonight, thanks for participating!

    Tomorrow, say 9:00 in the evening Chan time? I doubt the thread will still be here but I'll try to bump it from work if I can. Hell I might play from work if I can. Otherwise, I will reference the suptg archive post. I think it's already archived somewhere in the thread.

    Op here, hey guys this thread is dying out due to bump limit reached.

    I will recreate the thread, but might be a tad late due to drinking and so forth.

    Either way, the story WILL be finished.
