IC: Ch 5: Where the Hell are we?

The headline in the newspaper reads 'Huge Hounds Haunt Hockomock'. The police have closed the case as only being coyotes and a crazy farmer. But you know better when it comes to stories that don't seem quite right. Where do these black hounds come from, what do they want (besides their nightly chicken dinner)? And how do you stop them?

IC: Ch 5: Where the Hell are we?

Postby BenTheRat » Fri Nov 10, 2017 3:41 pm

Slowly images return to your brain, it's not that it was dark, only that your brains had no way to interpret what you were seeing.

As the impulses slowly and tentatevly revealed them to you, you realize you are by your friends, and in some cases inside or through them. Large holes are in their bodies, arms and legs. In cases organs were outside, and your hand or pieces of it, could pass through someone else as if they were not there.

The ground was black, and looked liked polished obsedian, it seemed to be the only material you could not pass through. Pillars were staggered around, with strange and shocking carvings of beasts and men. They stretched up into the dark sky.

Bret cannot quite figure out how to trace the lines with his thumb, as the touch still felt black, not lines. You did the best you could, but nothing seems to happen.

OOC:   Everyone take a sanity 1/1d6 check please.

Maria

“What’s happening?” stammers Maria, as she starts to comprehend the awful weirdness of their surroundings. The unreality of the situation is so great that she shuts her eyes and tries to block out the weird images around her.

Tobias tried to locate Bret and use him as an achor to get ahold of his bearings in this confusing place.

As you look around, you see what should be the professor and Joe, as all of you look more like an amoeba than a person.

The pillars also appear to be in a continual flux.

Spoiler:
the pillars are not only made of man and beasts, they were alive and moving. It was perverse in many ways. They were engaged in all sorts of lude and lasciviousness, but also killing, torturing and devouring each other. The acts were not natural, and made your stomach, churn.

As you speak, the words don't sound right in your ears, it is almost in stereo, with echos, reverberations and a clicking you are not familiar with.

"We are in Daoloth's realm, the realm between dimensions, where the veil will be pulled back, and the universe will be revealed to us in it's true form." The professor answers. Again, his voice has many layers to it, that you would normally not be able to hear or understand. But you can now.

Tobias looked sceptically at the professor, "And who the hell is this 'daolotho-thingiemajig'? You're not speaking sense, man."

"Oh yeah, and that too. Answer the questions." Tobias said, pretty angry at the professor as well, that, and the surroundings here aren't exactly doing anything to alleviate his stress. In fact, staying here is doing the exact opposite.

"Why would you want to leave? We can finally find the answers, why are we here, what is realy out there in the universe?" The professor says.

About that time, there was pop, similar to a rubber band snapping. Your bodies that were amoeba type in shape, formless and floating, snapped back to their normal self but flattened as well. You are now a 2 dimensional object.

OOC:   Everyone make a Sanity 1/1d6 check since your diminsional space just changed from many to 2.  


You can now touch each other and while the floor and room stayed 3 deminsional. The pillars are flat as well. But you can pass by them. The same with each other. When you pass each other you are almost touching as you slide by each other. You can move East and West, but not North or South.

You see a large black crevice in the floor to the West of you. It is running North/South. You aren't sure if it was there before, and just hard to see because of the weird dimension or if it just now occurred.

OOC:   If you are still sane at this point, make a listen check.

Maria

Keeping her eyes closed helps Maria to remain calm, although things feel so different. Instead she tries to use her other senses, and she thinks she hears something.

After everything Eddie has seen, he is starting to get used to impossible things, but the sudden transformation is so distracting that he hears nothing.

Maria hears footsteps approaching from the east.

"How can they be walking here?" she thinks.

"Someones coming" she warns the others. "Behind me".
