Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Eleventh: A Lengthy Trek

A young fellow of particularly attractive features, arrayed in what appears, at first glance, to be an eccentric combination of military garb with such decorations as are favored by certain aboriginal inhabitants of the New World, approaches the newcomers. Grinning first at Doctor North, he says, so...

Re: Track 10: Sympathy for the Devil

Another WIS battle, monster 12, Liz 11. 2d20 = 10, 13. Not good. Her forehead shining with sweat from the battle of wills between herself and the creature, Liz is finally forced to withdraw. It seems that the being's stubborn desire to remain in this plane of existence has overcome her best attempt...

Re: The Ghost Lights

After some time passes, another object is discovered in the selfsame location. It consists of two short pieces of slender rope, each tied in a loose overhand knot, the pair intertwined in such a way that, were one to pull them taut, they would become inseparable. At the harbor, word spreads that Tra...

Re: Barnabas

Overhearing the conversation between the two ladies, Professor Stokes notes that Miss Evans seems somewhat confused.
Spoiler:
Very busy so just a brief visit.

Re: The Ghost Lights

The inhabitants of the New House discover an anonymous note, written in an inelegant hand, left in the same place as the scrimshaw. Lady, hope gift was not presumtus In response to Miss Winter's statement concerning her brother, Sarah makes no reply, but appears engaged in her schoolwork. At the har...

Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Eleventh: A Lengthy Trek

Once passing through what one might call the portal, the adventurers find themselves at some small distance from a group of men and women, all quite young, dressed in extremely colorful clothing, even the persons of the male sex. Given this fact, and the unusually lengthy locks of the men, it is not...

Re: Track 10: Sympathy for the Devil

Battle of WIS -- monster WIS = 12, Liz = 11 2d20 in that order = 17, 14 both failures, so indeterminate at this point There appears to be a battle of wills between Liz and the creature, neither one dominating the other. At least there are no more attacks coming from it, for the moment. Very busy he...

Re: The Ghost Lights

Reverend Trask goes to examine and bless the ships, hoping to prove one way or the other whether this is merely a natural phenomenon or if there is something supernatural involved. The blessings of the ships, a ritual not unfamiliar to seafaring men, appears to intensify the phenomenon, with the ee...

Re: The Ghost Lights

' "Very well," says Victoria , though she is sure Sarah 's interest in Boston is more than idle. She will have to ask Barnabas about it when she gets a chance. This proves to be more difficult than one might imagine, as Barnabas Collins has not been seen for some days, nor have those bold...

Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Eleventh: A Lengthy Trek

Alas! Once the adventurers take stock of their situation, they become aware that withdrawal, as prudent as it may be, is not as simple as it may seem. The plain fact is that the disparate views appear in all four directions by which it is possible to move, and it is impossible to leave the structure...

Re: Barnabas

Once at a safe distance from the House by the Sea, Professor Stokes pauses in thought. "If that Loomis fellow is involved, there can't be anything good going on. And yet petty thievery and annoying women is more his style. From what I've heard of him, he hardly possesses either the intelligence...

Re: Track 10: Sympathy for the Devil

Acting on instinct, Tony immediately interposes himself between the monster and the others. “Quick! See to Lazlo and find out what they’ve been doing here! I’ll try to distract the thing while you work out how to defeat it!” He waves his arms at the giant blob. “I say! Yoohoo! Over here!” Hopefully...

"It would have some cost, yes," says Victoria . "Of course, your family certainly has wealth. If you did wish to visit Boston...out of curiosity, perhaps they could be persuaded to let you go if you were properly escorted. I could accompany you as well, if you wished. I'm sure it wou...

Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Eleventh: A Lengthy Trek

Once under the stony roof of the structure, the adventurers note that the surrounding scenery has been altered in some manner, as if heavy clouds had suddenly appeared to block out the sun. As Scripture says, it is as if one were to see through a glass, darkly. Upon closer inspection, it appears tha...
