[shalimar [h3 [center [size30 [b Prologue: A common Enemy]]]]]

[center [Shalimar [size30 A very large city where odd things tend to go on without anyone really noticing or believing in them.

A place like this is perfect for a set of young kids whose curiosity may find them in a very dangerous situation.


It was abandoned. The house that they decided to sneak into. A place said to be haunted. A place said to hide a ton of danger. No kids should just be trying to get into this place and yet... It seemed to call to them. To beckon them. Other kids had gone missing in that place. Bodies were never found. Yet no one ever seen them again. Even with all the horror stories these four kids were determined. They were going to see what was inside. They would conquer the evil and be heroes of the town.

So now they are standing in front of the huge house. It seems to loom over them leaving them all feeling rather small.

Roll Perception
12 passing 10 - 11 low

Pass - The house is made from wood. Though the wood is peeling and beneath the wood that is slowly peeling away is a deep red color that almost looks like blood. The windows are all boarded up. The front door which is actually a set of double doors use to have wood across them, but it has been broken down a long time ago. Bright yellow caution tape is strung up across one of the doors, but even it has been cut apart.

Roll Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The red that they are seeing is simply the color of the wood on the inside. The broken boards that lay across the door and the front porch look to have been pulled down with crowbars. They can see the markings of the crowbar pretty clearly. Someone must have pulled the boards down to get inside. The caution tape was probably cut with a small pocketknife or a pair of scissors.

Now was the time if they wanted to run away. Nothing is set in stone. They could easily leave if they wanted to, but all of them had a reason to be here now... Didn't they? They took a step inside.

[h3 [center [b First Floor]]]

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The first floor is huge. The room that they have entered is a large entry way. The wooden flooring is broken in some places. A door to the left enters into the kitchen and a door to the right opens into the living room. Further down the hall is a set of stairs leading up and another door.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - Upon looking closer around the entry way you can see strange claw marks on the wall. The flooring that is broken looks like it was due to age. Looking into it all you can see is darkness. It may lead to a basement.

Kitchen

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The kitchen is a wreck. Broken dishes on the floor. Glass. It even looks as if something tried to rip the appliances out or away from the walls. Red splatters are along one of the counter tops.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The red splatters are blood, but it is dried. There is white fur in the blood splatters. It is hard to tell what was trying to destroy the appliances. Clearly it hadn't gotten time to finish its rage. Claw marks seem to litter everything. Some small and some large. It almost looks like a struggle.

Living Room

Perception
12 pass 10 -11 low

Pass - This large open space is a mess. The couch is flipped and there is stuffing everywhere. The tv is smashed leaving glass all over the floor. The tv stand is shoved almost through the wall. Some of the floorboards have been ripped up.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - Again claw marks. The floorboards were definitely ripped up by something. The holes are dark and it's hard to see down there. As you are peering down into the hole large yellow eyes seem to glow in the darkness. They are looking up at all of you. A long and loud growl can be heard from below. There are some tuffs of black fur around the holes. The eyes suddenly seem to disappear, and all is quiet again.

Door in the hallway

Opening this door, you are now looking down a set of dark stairs. These stairs lead you down into the basement. Carefully you began descending down them. An order is required.

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - You feel the stair almost give away and you step back.
Fail - You put too much weight on the stair, and it collapses.

Dex Save
12 pass

Pass - You are able to quickly step back as the stair falls.
Fail - You fall down the few remaining steps and hit the cold basement floor below. Take 1d4 of damage.

As you get down the rest of the way you are completely in the dark.

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The basement appears to be empty. Nothing at all. Even though everyone swore that they saw eyes down here and... Let's not forget the growling. Suddenly out of the corner a huge hulking black wolf like beast comes charging at them. Saliva is dripping from its lips. Blood stains its teeth.

[center [pic https://i.pinimg.com/564x/20/e8/0e/20e80e1504e0356195c0212a127e365e.jpg]]


Athletics / Acrobatics
12 pass

Pass - Quickly they move up the stairs skipping the one that was broken. The creature is breathing behind them. Snarling and snapping at them. They can feel its breath. They can smell the decay and blood on it. It is so close. Oh, so close. It feels like its closing in no matter how quickly they are trying to get away from it. Out of the basement they close the door quickly. They hear and feel it hit the door hard. The sounds of snarling and growling go away, and the smell seems to just disappear. Slowly they open the door, and the creature is just gone.

Fail - It grabs them. They can feel the creatures' claws digging into their skin. It hurts and it burns. Suddenly the pain stops, and the creature is gone. It was like it was never there, but the claw marks are there. Take 1d4 of damage.

 [shalimar [center [size30 [b Second Floor]]]]

[shalimar [center [size30 Slowly they head up the stairs to the second floor.

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - They are standing in a long hallway. At the end of the hall is a ladder leading up further. It is most likely into an attic. There are four doors on this floor. One leads into a bathroom and the other three are bedrooms. A master bedroom. A guest bedroom. A child's room.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The floor and walls are covered in these deep claw marks. Maybe from that odd werewolf looking thing they seen earlier? Most of the doors have been pulled off of their hinges. The floorboards up here are scratched up and some of them are missing as well.

Guest Room

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The guest room is completely destroyed. The bed ripped apart and the bed frame thrown against the wall. Blood and claw marks everywhere. The dressers have been destroyed.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The blood is dried. There is nothing in this room. Shreds of clothes but no bodies or anything. Not even bones.

Child's Bedroom

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - There is a crib that has been ripped apart to the left and a child's bed laying off to the right. Blood stains this room. A child's doll lays in the center of the room. The toys have all been destroyed.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The blood is dried. None of this has been recent it seems. Looking in the closet they find a very sad sight. Bones. It is hard to tell what they use to be, but it seems that this might have been the two that lived within this room. They aren't exactly sure though.

Master Bedroom

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The room is also destroyed. The master bed is shredded. The closet doors have been ripped off of the hinges. Nothing is inside though. There is another door inside this room, but there is no way to get inside. Something has the door pushed shut.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - There is blood in this room as well. There are bones laying around, but they are hard to identify.

Bathroom

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The bathroom is covered in blood. The tiles are broken, and the sink is broken as well. The tub is filled with blood.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The blood in the bathtub is still liquid, but it has been drying out. They aren't sure if it is fresh or not. The tiles were probably broken by force the same as the tub and sink.

As they leave the bathroom and turn to the ladder leading to the attic a growl catches their attention. Slowly from the master bedroom that werewolf returns. Its eyes find them easily and it bares its fangs in an awful snarl. It almost looks like it is smiling.

[center [pic https://i.pinimg.com/564x/20/e8/0e/20e80e1504e0356195c0212a127e365e.jpg]]

Athletics / Acrobatics
12 pass

Pass - Quickly they make their way up the ladder. They don't want to end up feeling the bite of that creature or its claws. (Again, if someone else has already been attacked by it.)

Fail - It pulls them down from the ladder with ease and bites down into them. It hurts badly. Suddenly like the last time the creature is gone. Take 1d4 damage.

[center [b Attic]

Up to the attic they go. No longer being chased.

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - It is a very large attic. There are papers all over the floor. Close to the far wall near the window is a desk and someone is sitting at it.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The papers on the floor have music notes written all over them. There are so many of them. The music notes looked to be written rather quickly and messily. It looks to be red ink, but a closer look reveals it is dried blood.

[center [pic https://i.pinimg.com/564x/c6/b0/e1/c6b0e156ef34c2c1e525cb7bb80e6dbd.jpg]]

Slowly the person in the chair turns towards them. Blood is dripping from his lips and his eyes are completely gone. It still seems like he is looking at them though.

Insight
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - There's so much on his face. It is so hard to see how is feeling. There's pain but also excitement. He seems to be fighting both.

"I've failed... Failed... All because of you... I was so sick... Sick of all the death... The songs... Oh the songs... It helped me write so many songs... So many died..."

Slowly he stands up and laughs. On the desk is a bunch of scribbled music notes. A phone lay upon the desk a blank white screen. Suddenly it darkens. In red words across the screen, it said "Enough"

The screen cracked and the man that was standing before them screamed. Blood poured from where his eyes use to be. He started laughing loudly.

"It's all over now. It will find someone else now."

He took a step towards them and dropped to his knees. He started laughing again. It was almost hard for him to speak, but he did it anyway.

"Run. Leave this town. That thing. It's twisted."

Slowly he fell to the ground blood pooling around him.

"I... I am glad... I saved..."

He was crying now and could barely finish his sentence.

"All of you."

It's a whisper but they hear him. The phone on the table suddenly sets on fire. The desk erupts into flames next. Quickly they escape the house. They run without looking back.

Later they would find out that the house burned down. Apparently, the fire was almost impossible to put out. Many bodies were found under the property. The bodies were missing pieces and they looked chewed on. Others looked to be burned or had been stabbed hard enough to chip bone.

Thankfully no one ever figured out that those kids had been in the house.

Much later they would find out that the man they had seen was a famous musical writer. He wrote amazing violin pieces, but at some point, he had just disappeared. His body was found in the house. His bones charred. They'd never know he was behind everything... All those deaths.

[shalimar [center [size30 [b Together Again]]]]


[shalimar [center [size30 It may have been fate... Or maybe it was because of the promise that they had all made to one another, but after ten years they meet at the very spot they had promised to. Some of them completely left the city and are now returning. The ones that stayed seemed to just lose contact with one another. One of them had bought a building for the whole purpose of running investigations on supernatural incidents, but he has yet to look into anything because he's been waiting for his friends to return. After catching up they are showed this building.

[center [b Phantasm]]

This building is an old office building that was abandoned a long time ago. Since they had been waiting for their friends return no one had even tried to clean up the place. It is a two-story building with a basement. The place has been completely cleaned out. There is nothing left for it. It will need some serious work to become the place that they want it to be. The first floor looks like it would have been a reception area. It is of course empty now, but it's easy to see that this place could definitely become something. Upstairs there are several rooms that could be used as offices. One looks like it has been lived in. The basement is empty and could easily be used as a storage place. Getting the place up and running might take some time, but at this moment they could still work with it.

As they come back down to the first floor, they find a man standing in the center of the room. Two huskies are standing at his side.

[center [pic https://i.pinimg.com/564x/f1/9c/66/f19c66e7217827fc49d7f4cac6ea41e8.jpg]]

"Now Jack... I had heard you bought this place... I didn't expect you to bring friends though."

This man is Eden Quinn. He smiles almost warmly though there's something about it that seems... A little off.

Insight
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - Though he seems to be friendly he is very guarded. This guard seemed to only pop up though when he seen the other people with Jack. Clearly, he isn't ready to act as friendly with people he doesn't seem to really know. Other than the guard he seems honest and doesn't seem to be hiding anything.

Both dogs are at his side watching wearily. They are trained to protect their master. They had been excited to see Jack as they know him, but now they are standing very still waiting.

"I am Eden Quinn and to the left here is Bane and to the right is Amber."

Both dogs seem to calm down as their names are told to these new people. They take the time to wonder around the party of people and sniff them curiously. Why this is happening Eden begins to speak to them about something rather important.

"So... I can see that this place hasn't got any attention. I am going to assume that you haven't had any customers either. It is hard to get anyone to talk to you about supernatural happenings when you have no... Actual proof..."

He looks around the place before he reaches into his coat pocket and brings out a folded piece of paper. He offers it out to Jack.

"Hopefully this will help you out a bit. You see... This is from case we just had come in last night. A married couple was found killed and their teenage son is missing. Normally we would just say that the son murdered them and then ran for it, but... There's a lot of odd things about this. Nothing has been messed with other than the bodies have been removed."

He looks off to the side and a small smile comes over his lips.

"Of course... This isn't something that you can just do right out in the open. You would have to go and explore it at night. Time is limited. They will at some point want to get the place cleaned up and put on the market again. If you find anything you can call me... Or just come by the police station and ask for me."

He whistles and the dogs return quickly to his side. With that he turns and heads for the door. He stops a moment and looks back at them.

"Please write me a report of everything you see and encounter. I am working on getting this kind of thing noticed. Good luck... Also... Be careful."

With that he heads out the door.

The paper in Jack's hands is a little information about the case and the address to the house. Reading over the paper you notice that there are things that have been underlined as well as notes written along the side. Seems like Eden was working on this case specifically.

The bodies were apparently mauled. Some kind of canine, but the teeth don't match a dog or a wolf. Too large. They were defending themselves against something. Both were found in different places. The husband was found in the basement laying at the foot of the stairs. The wife was found in the kitchen. She didn't look like she was expecting anything. The husband had his pants unbuttoned. They don't think he started at the foot of the stairs. They are sure he backed up towards the wall. These deaths were messy.

As for the son. He's completely missing. He left no note or anything behind. He left his phone and didn't take anything with him. Eden has left a note that says he doesn't think that the boy has left. That he thinks that he is still somewhere inside the house. There aren't any reasons written down on why he thinks this.

With all of this information they can go and take a look at the house.

[center [b The House]]

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The house is only a single story. A very lovely place. It's painted a light yellow and there is a lovely white fence around the front yard. There is caution tape on the front porch. There is a way around the back and the back door is slightly ajar. The place stands there so quietly. A beautiful house.

Stealth
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - They are able to slip through the open back door and into the house.

Fail - They make it in, but they are kind of loud of about it. They shut the door and lock it behind them.

Since they have entered through the back door, they are standing in the living room.

[center [b Living Room]]

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The living room is very clean. There is a couch to the left with coffee table in front of it. Hanging from the wall that the couch is facing is a tv. There are pictures on the wall to the right with the husband and wife in them. They seem happy, but there is no sign of them having any kid with them. There is a door that leads out into the kitchen and then there is a set of double doors that probably lead into the bedroom. There is a small door off to the side that is most likely a bathroom.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - There isn't really anything in the living room. It is just a typical living room. A very nice place.

[center [b Bedroom]]

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The bedroom is very clean. A huge bed is in the center of the room. There is a dresser along the left side of the room. On the right is a walk-in closet. The door is open.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The closet doesn't have anything in it but clothing. The bed is made.

[center [b The Bathroom]]

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The bathroom is very clean. There is a bathtub/shower is to the right of the room. The toilet is to the left. There is a sink to the right of the door. A medicine cabinet is above the sink. There is a cupboard that the sink sits in.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - There is cleaners beneath the sink. The medicine cabinet has toothbrushes and tooth paste as well.

[center [b Kitchen]]

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - The kitchen would most likely look clean if there wasn't a huge blood stain. There is a door near the blood stain. This is probably leading down into the basement. There are kitchen appliances to the left side of the wall. There is a table in the center of the room. All the chairs are pushed in. There is also the front door.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - There is food on the counter that was getting ready to be prepared. It has gone bad now and the smell is definitely in the air. The kitchen cabinets are filled with dishes and cleaners. The fridge is filled with food. When they look at the blood on the floor they notice an odd claw mark in it, but it could just be that something got dragged through it.

[shalimar [center [size30 [b Basement]]]]

[shalimar [center [size30 Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - As they head down the basement steps, they can see that the floor has a huge, dried blood stain on it. They have to carefully step around it. The basement has been turned into a large bedroom. There is a bed along the far wall. There is an assortment of things laying around. Typical teenage boy's room. There is a tv and a game system off to one side. There is a huge opening beneath the stairway. It isn't closed off or anything. Laying in front of it is a sketchbook.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - So far, the room seems just about normal. The bed is a mess. Upon looking at the sketchbook they look through it. It has a ton of different monsters drawn in it. They are rather well drawn.

Arcana
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - There is something odd here. It seems to be coming from beneath the stairs. It is slowly fading away though.

They move carefully down beneath the stairs. A marching order is needed. It is a very tight space. As they are walking forward it seems like it is just going on forever. Even though it is dark, and they can't see anything they should have hit a wall by now. One of them try to stand up and find that they can. Now everyone is standing in this large dark space.

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - There is some sort of light in the distance. It may be a good idea to walk towards it.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low

Pass - It is very dark. They can't see anything but this light.

[center [pic https://i.pinimg.com/564x/ee/7b/23/ee7b230e62ed698d9055584b23fbb8ca.jpg]]

As they grow closer to the light, they can make out someone sitting on the ground. He is holding up a small flashlight and seems to be sketching.

[center [pic https://i.pinimg.com/564x/dc/90/d4/dc90d4a4e784c4d8ef5060254ae76327.jpg]]

As they draw closer, they can make the boy out better. He is dark haired with bright blue eyes. You are only able to see him because of the flashlight. As they are almost standing in front of him something comes from the shadows and roars angrily at them. They can't see it very well. The shadows seem to hide it. The boy looks up at them.

"Go away. Please. I am happy here."

The boy doesn't seem very happy about this. He doesn't want them to be here. The shadows around him seem to grow and the flashlight seems to be slowly going out.

Persuasion
Against his

Pass - He will tell you everything about his life. He will still refuse to leave though and the creature in the dark will continue to stand protectively around him. Almost holding him.

[center [pic https://i.pinimg.com/564x/99/45/f2/9945f267eaf0b6fbb31aa509669957b5.jpg]]

"You can't have him. You have done nothing to him so you may leave alive."

The creature's voice can be heard all around them. It has no interest in killing anyone else. It only wants to keep this boy and live here on this plane of existence.

If they decide to fight this creature it will fight back. They can also question this creature before they leave.

They can agree to leave, and the creature will send them out shutting down his portal into his plane. They will no longer be able to notice magic in the area anymore.

[shalimar [center [size30 [b Onto the Next Task]]]]

[size30 [shalimar [center With that done they can turn this information into Eden, or they can head back to headquarters and rest up a bit.

[center [b Back to Phantasm]]

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low
Pass - They notice them standing nearby. Two beautiful black and white dogs. They see all of them and they turn and pad away. They are Amber and Bane. The dogs that belong to Eden.

If they try to follow the dogs, they will be met by Eden. If they go into Phantasm, then Eden will intrude on them after a few.

Seems like Eden had been waiting for their return. It is unknown how he actually knew they would be done though. They may ask him about this if they wish. If it is anyone other than Jack, they will have to roll persuasion.

Persuasion
12 pass 10 - 11 low

After they explain everything to him (if they so wish to) he will give them a whole new task. He will also pay them 100gp for completing the one he had given them before. He doesn't offer much explanation for the next task that he has for them. He promises them good money though if they complete it. He hands the papers over to Jack. More notes written all over this batch of information. He tells them that they will have some way to go.

After this him and his dogs leave.

They can read his new task, or they could try asking around to see if anyone has any issues. Currently they aren't very well known so no one really wants to talk to them about this kind of thing.

[b New Task]

This one will be taking them a little outside of Retorta. There is a place a little way out of the city that is known for camping. There are some amazing and secluded cabins out there. In one of the cabins a man named Chase Lovell was staying. He was found dead on the road leading back towards a small town that watched over the cabins. His body was found in a very odd state. He had bites taken out of him, but he had also been trampled. It looked to be deer hooves, but they haven't been identified just yet.

The teeth marks that were left on his body were sharp. Almost like a wolf had taken bites out of him. After this attacked happen other people are frightened. They want to know what kind of creature attacked this man.

What he wants Jack and his group to do is head out to that cabin and look around. He wants to see if they can find anything. He doesn't think this was something that could just be explained as a freak accident with woodland animals. Getting to this place is a long walk. He offers them a ride in his car if they would like to. He even offers to stay in the small town nearby so that he can pick them up when they are ready.

He leaves his address and tells them that they can stop by anytime.

[b Eden's Home]

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low
Pass - The house is rather small, but it looks comfortable. It has a yellow fence in the front yard. This is probably so he can let the dogs out. The gate has been left open almost as if he was expecting they would come and see him. The house was painted a rather lovely light grey. The door however was a very odd bright blue.

Eden comes to the door and opens it for them to come in.

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low
Pass - The house is practically filled with dog items. He seems obsessed with dogs. Not just any dogs either... His own. Trophies that they won. Pictures of them. There are fake pawprints along the floor. He very clearly loves his dogs. He takes them to his kitchen. Both dogs are laying on the floor. They look up as the group comes in.

"Well, I guess you guys are going to need a ride. I will take you, but we have to be careful."

He didn't like leaving very much. Plus, he knew that it would be weird for him to go out that way with a group of people that weren't officers. He would do this for them though so they wouldn't have to travel out that far. It would take way too long by foot. At least he thought so.

This is simply a choice. If they take his offer they will have to get in his car. Who's in the front seat and how do the other three fit in the back? Also, he's taking both dogs.

If they decide to walk there will be nothing on the way. It is just a very long walk. There will be multiple stops and they better have stuff to camp out with.

Either way they will get to the cabin. Eden will leave them to their investigations and head to the small town. He says he will ask questions there and see what he can find out from them. He's already done it once, but he figures it doesn't hurt to ask again.

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low
Pass - The cabin is secluded and surrounded by lush woodlands. There is a path leading away from it that heads back towards the small town that runs this place. The cabin is huge and appears to be normal. As they approach the cabin, they feel like they are being watched. Looking around they can't seem to see anything though.

Arcana
12 pass 10 - 11 low
Pass - There does seem to be a bit of magic around here, but it is hard to really pinpoint where it is coming from. It doesn't seem to be coming from inside the cabin.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low
Pass - As you are stepping up onto the porch, they can see hoof marks. It appears that something was pacing back and forth here.

History
12 pass 10 - 11 low
Pass - These tracks are deer tracks.

That's odd. Deer don't normally just come right up to a place people are staying. Deer are known to be pretty skittish.

Inside the Cabin

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low
Pass - The inside of the cabin is kind of a mess. There are clothes thrown about. It looked like someone was rushing to get them picked up, but apparently, they had been interrupted by something or someone. The place doesn't seem like it was stayed in for long. The bed is still made.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low
Pass - It looks like there are scratches on the floor. Upon looking closer it appears that the small couch in the room had been pushed in front of the door at some point. It was moved back to its original place though it wasn't exactly in its place. The man that had been here must have been trying to keep something out. Looking around further they notice a piece of paper laying out on the table.

The language on the paper is common at least for a bit... At some point there is a different writing, and it is in infernal.

[i [b Dear ______,
I have tried calling so many times. You are ignoring them I know you are. I just have to get this out. I know I could have texted, but I didn't think you would actually answer since you weren't answering the phone. I don't know how I'm even going to get this to you. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to do this to you. I know she was your wife. Of course, I knew. We were best friends. I shouldn't have betrayed you like this. I... I'm so sorry. I just can't apologize enough.]]

In Infernal
[b You're Apologies mean nothing.]

After the paper there is nothing else left in the cabin to find.

[shalimar [center [size30 [b Along the Trail]]]]

[size30 [shalimar [center Now they decide to head to the trail where the man was found dead. It isn't a hard spot to find. The blood staining the ground is still there. There is yellow caution tape around the area.

Perception
12 pass 10 - 11 low
Pass - There is a huge puddle of blood. The ground is very marred. Clearly there was a struggle here. This guy had tried to fight for his life. Of course, his fighting did him no good. They feel very watched out here.

Investigation
12 pass 10 - 11 low
Pass - The blood on the ground is all human blood. Whatever he was struggling against he didn't actually do any damage to it at all. As they continue to look around the area, they find the man's phone laying on the ground.

The phone is dying but they are able to swipe the screen and look through it a bit. There are a lot of phone calls to one particular number. The phone is very cracked, so it is hard to make out the phone number.

It seems to start getting dark almost like the sun is setting, but it isn't late enough. They should still at least have an hour of sunlight.

Arcana
12 pass 10 - 11 low
Pass - There's something going on out here. There seems to be a lot of magic in the air suddenly.

Perception
12 pass (Everyone Roll)
Pass - They see it before its upon them. A large deer like creature. It has its fangs bared. Its growling angrily. It seems more than ready to fight.
Fail - They are surprised by this creature.

(Fight demonic deer. Has Peryton stats.)

Once it is defeated, they walk back towards town to meet up with Eden. When you get there, it looks like he had been getting ready to come and pick them up. He looks towards them surprised.

If they don't want to head to town, they can wait at the cabin for Eden.

[b Back to Retorta]

Eden takes them back to town.

[b Milestone Level Up] (yay)
