Dunwich Beach - Dunwich, England
3:05 PM - Thursday, September 5, 1985

Raymond MacIntyre stood watch outside Horsham's shack, looking out to sea as the two boats rowed off towards the undersea cave. Inside the shack, Horsham, tied to a support post, watched Salem Shields.

Salem lets out a long sigh, "I forgot to ask for the car keys from Leonek." Salem turns to Raymond, "You don't happen to have the car keys, do you?"
The other children cheered him on. His name voiced in a steadily rising pace, urging him to do it. “Am I really doing this?”, the young boy thought and struck his victim with a rock.

"No, I think they must have been lost when the boat got overturned," said Raymond. "They were able to jimmy the lock and use that sonic screwdriver device to start the motor. We've left the door unlocked and the motor running, seeing as we don't have the keys."

"Oh, that's right." Salem heads out to the door, "Keep an eye on our new friend, I gotta grab a few things from the car," Salem exit's Horsham's shack.

Raymond ducked inside the shack while Salem went out to the Land Rover, where he found his portable pathology lab.

Returning back with his lab equipment, Salem finds an empty counter and places his equipment down. Without turning towards Horsham, "How did you end up looking like this? Eat some bad fish?" as Salem prepares his lab.

Raymond went back outside to keep watch.

"Mock all you want," said Horsham. "There ain't nothing wrong with me."

With the pathology set ready, Salem sets out a few small flasks and beakers across the counter, including a handful of medical supplies. Salem took out a hypodermic needle, and approached Horsham, "Be a good sport." Salem puts the gag back into Horsham's mouth, and inserts the needle into his arm, drawing blood.

"Mph!" protested Horsham through the gag as Salem drew his blood.

Drawing the blood from Horsham, Salem proceeds to his pathology lab and begins testing.

It took a while, but Salem was able to analyze the blood sample. Horsham appeared to be largely human, yet there were some strange indicators in his cells. Unusual proteins were embedded in them that were more indicative of a fish. It was hard to judge without taking more samples from others with his condition, but Horsham appeared to be a hybrid creature: part human, part something else. This was not likely due to any disease or mutation, but some sort of hereditary condition, and the "something else" seemed to be genetically dominant.

"This is... this is quite fascinating! I never seen anything like this," looking underneath the microscope, Salem calmly gets up from his chair and looks for Raymond, "Ray, see anything?"

Spoiler:
How much time has elapsed?

"No, nothing!" called Raymond from outside. "It's quiet out here."

About half an hour had passed.

"Thanks Ray, keep your eyes peeled." Salem walks back over to Horsham, "So Horsham, tell me about the Lake family and their manor?" as Salem pulls up a chair and props against it.

"Will do," called Raymond from outside.

Horsham gave Salem a defiant look and said nothing.

Salem gave out a sigh, as he wished he had something more to do to kill time. Salem proceeds to close the shutters/blinds of the windows of the shack.

Spoiler:
Raymond turned back to the sea after watching Salem close the windows, just in time to see a monstrosity emerging from it! The thing was seven feet tall and bulging with muscles, covered in green scales and wearing a long silver string vest. It carried a long spear in one huge claw and a weighted net in the other. However, he had seen numerous alien creatures during his travels and adventures, and he was not startled. He raised his pistol and fired, but the shot was very wide. The creature moved incredibly fast, clearing the distance before he had a chance to fire again. It ran him through, opening a large gash in his side. Raymond screamed in agony!

Salem did not have to wait long. A single gunshot came from outside, followed shortly by Raymond's agonized scream!

In the sudden instance of the gunshot, Salem crouched down and headed to the window and takes a peek.

Salem cracked open the shutter and peeked outside, where his gaze fell on a horrifc sight. Raymond, standing near the shore, had a gaping wound in his side, and another of those monsters, this one about seven feet tall but rippling with muscles, loomed over him. This one carried a bloody spear in one huge claw and a weighted net in the other. Desperately, Raymond fired twice in rapid succession. The first shot barely missed, but the second just winged it. However, the bullet struck it in the kidney, and it collapsed on the beach.

Spoiler:
Salem, please roll Sanity for seeing it. Sanity loss is 0/1d6. If you lose 5 or more Sanity, roll Idea. If you fail the Idea roll, you do not go insane and may still act freely, but if you succeed, then you will go temporarily insane.

Rendered speechless, Salem involuntarily stares out into the window in shock.
