IC: Ch 1a: To the Farm (Eddie, Maria, Dr Porter)

The headline in the newspaper reads 'Huge Hounds Haunt Hockomock'. The police have closed the case as only being coyotes and a crazy farmer. But you know better when it comes to stories that don't seem quite right. Where do these black hounds come from, what do they want (besides their nightly chicken dinner)? And how do you stop them?

Eddie's eyes go wide when he sees the creature, and he instinctively fires a blast at it in panic. Unfortunately, his shaking hands make it less accurate.

Spoiler:
Sanity roll (current level 43) for seeing the hound:
Mr. Handy rolled 1d100:
67

Sanity loss for seeing the hound:
Mr. Handy rolled 1d6:
2

Shotgun roll (58% skill) shooting at the hound:
Mr. Handy rolled 1d100:
79

That will only hit if we're within point blank range (for me, that's 16 feet).

The farmer also blasts towards the hound.

Both blasts go wide as you try not to kill the other chickens flapping around.

The hound, with chicken in his teeth, turns, jumps the fence in one leap and quickly disappears back into the swamp.

OOC:   I still need sanity checks from the player.

Dr. Porter begins to mumble, "it was just a large dog, nothing more, a trick of the lights. " Otherwise he appears to be fine.

Maria stares, mouth agape at the sight of the hound. She is transfixed by its otherworldly appearance, but she can also see a strange beauty in it.

Spoiler:
Sanity 60: SAN: 1d100 19

She takes out her notebook and pencil and furiously begins to draw what she just saw. There is just enough light to see by.

Maria is drawing the hound. She only saw it for a few seconds, it will take a few minutes to get a decent drawing.

"Well now you've seen it. Fast little bugger and got another of my damn chickens damn it," the farmer growls. "These damn crates I built were just useless, he ripped that one to shreds like it was paper."


OOC:   Everyone make a Listen check.

@Mr. Handy, if you are within point blank ranch it now adds a bonus dice, not double it. Big change for 7th ed.

And just noticed another rule at the end of the combat chapter. Point blank range does not apply to long rifles and full length shotguns. So they never are considered in Point blank range.

Eddie points off into the distance. "I hear what sounds like cheering, coming from the swamp," he says, puzzled. "We should head down that way and check it out."

"I heard it too, but it's gone now," Dr. Porter says. "Do you still hear it? That sounded a long way away, through the swamp, are you sure you want to do this at night?"

Spoiler:
whatever it was, you no longer hear it.


Dr. Porter looks a little scared.

Mr. Jenkins pipes up, "Well that's it for me, fun's over for the night. It never comes twice. Bed time for me and the misses."

Maria

"We shouldn't go into the swamp at night. The ground's too treachorous. Besides, I'm not dressed for it."

She indicates her dress.

"Lets get properly equipped and return tomorrow. Perhaps those other two have found something that can help us."

Eddie nods. "Yeah, let's come back in the morning," he says.

It is getting late, and you remembered to meet up with other 2 at 8 am the next morning at the library.

Dr. Porter was shaken, "Cheering? Could there be others of these beasts? And since when do animals cheer?"

"I agree with the lady, we should regroup with the others in the morning and reassess before we head off into the woods." The good doctor thinks for a moment, "and perhaps I should get my hands on a hunting rifle if we are to go after the beast."
