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?

Darrell yells to the tommy gun toting woman.

"I knew there was someone else fighting against the evil in this Godforsaken town." As she fires Darrell cheers. "Drill the lizard!"

He rushes at Yig with an axe, screaming in terror, and swings the weapon: the axe bites into Yig's tail.

Round 2 Investigators Refresh
Spoiler:
Roll to check if the Curse is lifted (1 needed), Round 2 (1d6=1). Carolyn loses her Curse. No changes.

Yes! :D We have a real chance now!

Carolyn feels as though a sudden weight has been lifted from her shoulders. Squaring them, she reloads her Thompson and prepares to unleash hell.

Round 2 Investigators Attack



Image

Darnell sees the woman physically grow in stature and hope fills his heart.

Again he swings the axe--a true haymaker--but the blade whisks over Yig's head; the axe thumps into the ground, only a fraction of an inch from his T-bar shoe.

Round 2 Investigators Attack
Carolyn empties another drum of .45 bullets into Yig, and this time most of them connect! The monstrosity reels from the onslaught and starts to weaken, but it is still far from defeated.

Spoiler:
Speed 5 (+0) check (1d6=3, 1d6=4, 1d6=1, 1d6=3, 1d6=3); Darrell loses 1 Sanity and 1 Stamina.


Image

Yig's forked tongue whips against the side of Darrell's face, his fedora and an ear spin away from his head with a spray of blood.

Round 2 Ancient One Attacks
Yig tries to bite Carolyn with his venomous fangs, but she barely rolls away at the last possible second.

Spoiler:
Speed(+0) check to avoid getting hit by Yig (3d6.hits(5)=1).

I'll restore that lost Sanity point of yours during the refresh phase. It may pay to wait on Heal, as it can restore multiple Stamina points with multiple successes.

"Don't give up," Carolyn says encouragingly to Darrell as she reloads. "We're hurting that thing, and it's bleeding. If it bleeds, we can kill it."

Round 3 Investigators Attack

Round 3 Investigators Attack



Image

Carolyn places a comforting hand on Darrel's shoulder and his mental torment is relieved.

"Until that monster snaps my spine I shall never give up, never."

Darrell launches himself towards Yig--in a rage fuelled by the pain of his sliced off ear--and hews with the axe at Yig.
