Dunwich Beach - Dunwich, England
2:10 PM - Thursday, September 5, 1985

Story, his companions, Chad, Raymond, Tobias, Elliot, and Valerie made their way to the beach, finding an isolated spot with nobody else around where they could converse freely.

Tobias walks to an area of stones and dry sand and sits down watching the water, "We should look like we're just chilling out here. I'd skim stones but my shoulder's too stiff." He looks around, "The sand's pretty dry, ladies." He doesn't hear anything unusual.

Spoiler:
The tide was coming in earlier, so I'm hoping they can sit on dry sand and still be fairly close to the water.

Those who were paying attention when Lucius was talking knew he was no stranger to speaking secretly and conspiring amongst busy intersections. He would never have said anything that would jeopardize them because he had learned through past experience, every stranger was a possible threat, and so were some of the friendlies. He was obviously relieved they were on the beach, but he didn't let his guard down. In fact, he was a little more alert than while in the tavern.

He said to the others, "Something big and bipedal had managed to drag our transport into the water. A feat none of us would have been able to do on our own. You should be on guard for threats in all directions out here. Don't assume the water does not have ears too."

Elliot follows the others trying to catch what they are saying, but something else catches his ear.

Brook heard something too.

Spoiler:
Elizabeth heard a distant crack far to the south. She was sure it was a gunshot, most likely a pistol.

Spoiler:
Facing the water, Lucius heard a distant crack far to the right. It sounded a little like one of those strange weapons they used in these times, a gun.

Spoiler:
Brook and Elliot heard a distant crack far to the south. Could it have been a gunshot?

Brook was about to go sit down on the sand, when suddenly she hears something in the distance, and looks around to see where it might be coming from. "Was that a gun shot?" she asks, frowning.

Story listens to what Lucius shares with the others as he gazes out into the water. Upon hearing Brook say something of a gunshot he looks at her and says, "What did you say? A gunshot?" He turns and does a quick head count of all present before looking back in the direction they just came from. "Hmmm."

"Sounded like a gunshot to me. Should we check it out?" Elliot takes a few steps south and looks in the distance.

Lucius nodded, "I heard it too. That way," he pointed off down the shoreline. "Do we have protection?" Lucius' hand went to his pocket, where the strange plutonian weapon remained. He wished he knew how to operate it... but it had proven to be beyond his capabilities. Story didn't seem quite so interested in even attempting to figure it out. But maybe these newcomers... just maybe.

Tobias gets back to his feet. "No, no protection - not anymore. Wish I did." He says glumly, thinking back to the helicopter crash and his beloved glock that he'd lost. "Could be duck shooting. By the way, we found some strange prints next to marks in the sand - could have been something dragged into the water - was it yours? The prints were very odd like someone walking in flippers." He looks down the beach towards the sound to see if he can see anything useful.

Spoiler:
I know they're called fins but in the 80s I think people called them flippers, even Cousteau. Oh, and what a roll.

Chad also heard the gunshot, coming from the south.

Tobias focused his vision in the direction indicated and saw everything in crystal clarity.

Spoiler:
Far to the south, Tobias could see that the beach got narrower until it ended at the base of cliffs that rose above it, not far past a large shack with several boats outside of it. There was another small boat in the water past that point, near the base of the cliff, but that boat was upside-down...and there was blood on the water! He could probably make out more details if he got closer, but that was all he could tell from here without binoculars or something similar.

Spoiler:
The tide has actually started going out since the last time you were on the beach.

Chad listens and remarks, "Too late in the day for duck hunting, and a shotgun blast doesn't carry well like a rifle or pistol."

"I heard it too," says Elizabeth, "though it sounded quite far away to me, and like the noise a pistol makes."

"Oops." Says Tobias. He points south down the beach towards a boathouse of sorts. "Something bad's happened; there's a boat overturned in the water down there and I can see the waves looking rather too red in colour." He looks at his team mates and mouths 'Salem and Leonek?' We'd better get down there but careful; we don't know who fired the gun.'

"Well," Story looks at everyone, "What are we waiting for? We need to render some form of assistance."

Brook starts jogging down the beach towards the overturned boat, but looks around carefully for any snipers or gunmen.

"Yes we've got to help," says Elizabeth, running after Brook, and like her looking for any sign of the shooter.
