Despite the noise of the storm and the waves of fear that seem to continually buffet him, Maynard
stands perfectly still – listening. Was that a human scream of terror he had just heard or was it nothing more than the wind in its relentless assault on the woods. His attention is drawn to the trees to his left…At this point Maynard may either try a Spot Hidden with Advantage (Roll twice, pick highest) or Luck with Advantage (Roll twice, pick highest). Your choice.
Inside the kitchen Sean and Alister
have succeeded in connecting the stove to the generator, all that is needed now is to flick the switch. Emilia stares at Dorothy
as if the young reporter had lost her mind, then that stare is softened as realization dawns, “Yes. There are two pairs of rubber boots outside the back door on the porch”
. She thinks for a moment, “And there are several old pairs in the garage. Grandfather was loathe to throw anything away he always said you never knew when it might come in handy”
She moves back to the outside door her hand reaching for the handle…
passes each door she glances inside. It seems there are two bedrooms each with a joining study. One of the bedroom/studies shows signs of search and on the bed she sees a discarded book, open as if read before dismissal. Otherwise the rooms look as if they contain nothing of use.
Approaching the front door she realizes that it is open slightly, enough to give her a limited view of the front garden. As a flicker of lightning brightens the rain swept darkness, something metallic seems to briefly reflect the light…
We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are.
