Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Fifth: After the Catastrop

Squinting at Lepus, Gog shrugs his shoulders and sniffs at the fellow. "Me. Think. You. Not. Like. Water. But. Me. Take. You." He lifts Lepus up as if he were no more than a plaything, with surprising gentleness for one of such stature; evidently he means to do no harm to him. In a few boo...

Re: Track Five: I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)

Cursing colourfully, Tony watches the helicopter peel away for a second. Then he races off to the nearest pay phone to call Agent Carson in an attempt to get the chopper intercepted. A series of hurried phone calls over secured lines yields the information that an attempt to pursue the helicopter, ...

Re: August 18 - 10.00 PM - The Croockey Inn

Michael returns fire.

Spoiler:
pistol = 49%
VictoriaSilverwolf rolled 1d100:
46


The shot strikes home.

Spoiler:
damage = 1d10, I assume from above.
VictoriaSilverwolf rolled 1d10:
3


It's not fatal, but it must hurt the guy.

Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Fifth: After the Catastrop

At the mention of food Vincent searches his pockets. The nearest he has among his equipment is a small skin of wine which he proffers as either an offering should the capitaine require it or bait for the docteur's suggestion. The giant sniffs the air curiously. "Me. Smell. Drink. Not. See. Whe...

SunlessNick wrote:"I fear I did not," says William. "I did not expect to find anyone here. Is this place your home?"



The giant nods slowly.

Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Fifth: After the Catastrop

https://www.callofcthulhu.org.uk/pbp/download/file.php?id=1244 “Can this really be the Gogmagog of yore?” Lepus wonders. “Fae lady, how came this brute to be thine enemie?” The Dweller in the Waters cares not for such as he or thee, only that It be paid tribute! What finer gift than flesh and blood...

Re: Track Five: I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)

As the investigators approach, they are able to hear, over the roar of the helicopter's engines, shouted conversation from the men, in Russian. -- Someone comes! -- -- Can we not take off? -- They are answered by a woman's voice. -- Blasted engine! -- Since a helicopter is a much larger device than ...

Re: August 18 - 10.00 PM - The Croockey Inn

"No need for silence now," Michael mutters, "with them barrels makin' one hell of a racket." He fires a shot directly into the nearest barrel, hoping the men will be more concerned about the booze inside than the woman. "Freeze! Federal agents got ya surrounded! You're unde...

Re: Track Five: I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)

As the investigators hasten away from the device, the sound of a helicopter can be heard approaching at a rapid pace. It manages to find an acceptable landing place, not without some damage to the already crumbling remains of the mission. 0 A pair of men, both dressed in what seem to be black utilit...

Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Fifth: After the Catastrop

" I am Captain William Palliser. And with whom do I speak?" " William begins backing away slowly, in the hopes of luring the giant to where the others wait. "Me. Gog," the fellow replies, thumping his chest with a massive fist, producing a sound not unlike of a bass drum. H...

Re: August 18 - 10.00 PM - The Croockey Inn

If the men notice that they've got uninvited company, Michael will try to shoot a hole in one of the barrels, both to cause more chaos and to get a sample of the stuff. Until then, he'll play it quiet.

Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Fifth: After the Catastrop

As his three companions make haste to withdraw as agreed, William witnesses the stone wall ahead of him break apart, as if it were no more than a child's castle of sand washed away by the tide. Standing in the opening, gazing about, is what appears to me a man of great size; perhaps eight or nine fe...

Re: Track Five: I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)

As the device is inspected, a high-pitched noise emerges from it. Several dogs in the vicinity bark and whine. The sound eventually decreases in volume, but does not cease. All the lights except one, a red bulb in the center of the spherical body, cease blinking. This one continues, flashing on and ...

Re: August 18 - 10.00 PM - The Croockey Inn

Michael readies his pistol, but waits for the men to take action first. He wouldn't mind some booze himself right now, but he's got a hunch that the stuff in those barrels is not your typical rotgut.

However, perhaps you should let the professionals take it from here.” He approaches the device and attempts to flick it onto its back with his stick. If it attempts to fire a ...

Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Fifth: After the Catastrop

After this brief discussion, heavy slow footsteps, as of something of great size walking deeper within the cavern, echo throughout the chamber. In a moment, the far side of the cave to the right, at the point marked on the map with another S, shudders in time with the sound of mighty blows, as if a ...
