Convergence

The year is 1999. A group of agents with the FBI quickly discover a routine case is anything but. Thrust into a world that's as incomprehensible as it is deadly, can this team hope to hold back the darkness?

"We're going to have to alert the local authorities," says Vanessa, "after we've gone over the crime scene and made sure there's nothing they shouldn't see. There may be something of interest on the laptop." She examines the body closely.

Nik

“We need to search the whole room” Nik tells Jose. “Get Griff to help. Adams’ may have notebooks or diaries as well as the laptop. Look for any bills or receipts which might show where he’s been around town. There may be no connection but, you can never tell.”

He peers closely at the body, looking for the same surgical scars which appeared on Spivey, or anything else untoward.

Griff enters the room, his nose wrinkling at the familiar smell of death.

“I can’t leave you guys alone for a minute can I? Let me take a look at the guy.”

He examines the body from a medic’s perspective.

Vanessa also tries to determine what she can about the body medically.

Griff and Vanessa see no signs of surgical scaring on the man, but they recall hat they hadn't on Spivey either. Derringer had told them that the scars were barely visible and only notable under an extensive medical examination. They would likely need to do the same to see if it was the case here, which meant physically interacting with the body.

José works to examine the hotel room, but it becomes apparent that the lack of light is something of an issue. He tries the light switch and discovers that the bulb has been removed from the hotel lamb. The best way to get some light in here would be opening the blinds, but he'd have to spend a few minutes on the task, as the man had secured them tightly with tape.

Nik also looks the corpse over, and something catches his eye. There is a small bulge of pure white tissue on the top right of the man's head. It does not resemble human tissue and looks most unusual, and is unmoving. He's never seen anything quite like it.

"Look at this" Nik indicates the tissue on Adams' head to Vanessa and Griff. "What do you make of it? We're gonna need to autopsy this guy."

"We can't do it here," says Vanessa. "It'll have to be done at the coroner's. I'll offer to assist in the autopsy, or failing that to observe. I have no idea what that stuff is. First, let's finish examining the scene. We can probably get a spare bulb from the supply closet to get some light in here." She checks the laptop to see if it's unlocked and if there's anything on the screen.

"I'll just get the one from our room, it'll be quicker."

Nik hurries off on his errand.

"What the hell is that?"

Squinting in the gloom, Griff shines his torch on the white lump so that he can get a better look.

"Hadn't we better go through his clothes, check for mud on his shoes and such? Isn't that the kind of thing you guys do?"

"He isn't wearing any clothes," says Vanessa, "which makes that easier under the circumstances. We'll need to do that too, but first I want to see if he left any notes on the laptop that might explain this. You can search while I'm doing that if you like."

Nik heads off to find a few spare bulbs to place back into the room's lamps.

Silver Priest rolled 1d3:
2


OOC:   Nik, it will take you two posts from me to retrieve the bulbs and return to the room. I'll let you know when you're back with everyone.  


José Keeps watch of the scene.

Vanessa examines the computer, and finds that it is thankfully not password protected. In addition to the web browser, there are three files located on the desktop that stand out to her.

The last one is an audio file.

Griff shines his light on the lump. It looks like a pure white lump of human tissue. And then as the light shines on it, it begins to twitch.

OOC:   Griff please roll San for unnatural. Loss is 0/1.

Dropping his flashlght, Griff lets put a yelp as the lump twitches.

"Jesus Christ! Damn thing moved!"

Visbly shaken he hurriedly steps away from the body.

"I guess we know why he had the place so dark... Holy f*** that's freaky!"

Even without the light on it the lump continues to move. It crawls off the top of the dead man's head and falls into the filled bathtub with a small plop, vanishing into the bloodied waters. Small residues of the slime are all that remain on the head.

Embarrassed by his outburst and relieved that no-one seems to have noticed, Griff pulls himself together. Clearing his throat, he calls to the others.

"Um, guys? Part of his head just crawled off into the bath..."

Griff keeps watch on the tub. For now, nothing else seems to happen.

Vanessa listens to the file. it's digitized and heavily distorted, but she can hear speech in there. The problem is the speech itself is impossible to make out, and she can't figure out what the true meaning behind the message. Someone who knew about computers might be able to make the message listenable, but until then it was an enigma.
