The Lurker at the Threshold (ic)

Yig's followers plot to summon him, and only nun Sister Mary, psychologist Carolyn Fern, and photographer Darrell Simmons can stop him. The Lurker at the Threshold offers a shortcut to power, but the price may be too high. Will they succeed, or will the great serpent return to rule the world?

Round 5 Investigators Attack



Image

Darrell's skin is pale, and he feels sick; however, there is still fight left in him.

"Thank you for the kind words, Miss."

Darrell gathers himself and then takes another lunge at Yig with the axe.

Round 5 Ancient One Attacks



Image

Darrell watches on angrily as Yig strikes Carolyn.

"Over here"--arms waving--"you vile serpent!" When the monster swipes its tail at him he leaps clear like he was diving over the goal line in football when he was at college.

Round 6 Investigators Attack
Carolyn fires a burst at Yig, but the great serpent easily avoids her gunfire. Her wounds have weakened her and hindered her accuracy.

Round 6 Ancient One Attacks



Image

Yig cuts deep into Darrell's thigh, his trousers change colour to a dark crimson: Darrell looks a bloody mess. The monster throws back its head and gurgles a victory cry.

Round 7 Investigators Refresh
"We've got him on the ropes," groans Carolyn, tactfully not mentioning that they are on the ropes themselves. "Just hang in there a little longer!" She forces herself up on one knee and takes aim.

Spoiler:
Carolyn uses Psychology to restore 1 Sanity to Darrell Simmons. No change to sliders.

Round 7 Investigators Attack
Carolyn cuts loose with another burst, peppering Yig with lead. She can see him visibly weakening.

Round 7 Investigators Attack



Image

"Just hang in there a little longer!"


Darrell nods to Carolyn and whistles through his teeth.


He drops the axe and throws Holy Water at Yig; the contents splash upon the monster's scales, purple steam hisses--the holy water is corrosive to the monster. Yig's gurgle sounds like phlegm rattling in a consumptive's chest.

"The monster is mortally wounded. Miss, let's brace ourselves for one more attack."

Yig lashes out at Carolyn with his slimy tongue, wrapping it around her body and neck and squeezing. She feels lightheaded as she begins to suffocate.

"Leave her alone you evil snake!" Yig doesn't pay Darrell any attention, it merely strikes Darrell across his mouth with its tail; he sees his spit and several teeth fly away in slow motion.

Round 8 Investigators Refresh
Carolyn can feel the life draining out of her, but she refuses to die. Summoning up all of the arcane power within herself, she heals her broken body.

Spoiler:
Carolyn uses Psychology on herself and regains 1 Sanity. Spell check (Lore 5 + 1 [Heal] = 6 dice), casting Heal on herself (6d6.hits(5)=4). Carolyn restores her Stamina to maximum and loses 1 Sanity from the Heal spell.

Darrell hurls the axe at Yig à la a mohican throwing his hatchet, it spins in the air--turning over and over, and embeds itself inbetween Yig's terrible googly eyes.

Carolyn untangles herself from Yig's gruesome remains and stands up. "Thank you," she tells Darrell, offering her hand. "I don't think either of us could have won this battle alone. That...thing is dead, and the world is safe for now, but we must constantly be on our guard. Who knows when another threat will arise?"
