IC: Ch 4: Hayne's University

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?

Joe and Lucy head to their car while the 5 of you make haste back to your car. You're a bit worried they won't wait for you, but when you break out of the woods finally, there he is sitting, his car running, waiting for you. He doesn't wait long, causing you to pile into your car with a bit of bluster to try and catch up.

There isn't much traffic on the road at this hour, and since you know he is heading back to the college it isn't too difficult to keep track of him. You follow him into the college campus and follow his car up to the English Building. It is a 3 story high brick building built with granite bricks for the foundation. Windows line the walls and a few of the lights are on.

By the time you park Joe and Lucy are opening the front door, "come on, in here." He seems almost anxious to be done with this.

Tobias waited at the back, prepared to be the last one to enter, just in case there's something unexpected in front.

Joe and Lucy walk into the hall, as Eddie follows them. The rest of you follow behind Eddie. The building appears to be empty.

Half-way down the hall, Joe pulls the door open to a door on the left side of the hallway. As soon as the door opens you hear talking and light streams into the hall.

You hear cheers inside as Joe walks in, you hear, "You had us worried, you okay?" As you look into the room, you see several young people all about college age. The room is obviously a stadium seating lecture hall that would hold at least 100 people. A large chalkboard dominates front of the room. All the young people are about half way down the room.

Eddie looks at the chalkboard to see if anything is written on it.

Tobias attempted to remain in the background and stay as inconspicuous as possible and attempted to make sense of what he saw in front of him with Eddie.

The chalkboard has some writing about Skakespear and what outside dark influences may have shaped his stories.

You do not see the professor.
Joe is telling the others he is planning on quitting, that it was fun, but he thinks there are risks he isn't willing to take. And that it is affecting him more than he thought. The seizure was the final straw. Many of the others are agreeing with him.

When Eddie asks about the key, you see them get a bit nervous. "Why do you want the key?"

Spoiler:
When Eddie asks about it, you see one of the young men slip the key under a desk.

Maria speaks up.

"It seems to me that you're thinking of quitting this, you realise it's not good for you. Do you want to continue? I can't see how it would end well. You should think of a way of disposing of the key, safely."

"It's hard you know. It's strange. Every time I think I'm going to quit, I can't help but come back, for just one more run," One of the students says.

"Well you saw what it did to me, I can't imagine going through that again," Joe adds. "Bill give 'em the key."

At the stage you see the professor come onto the stage, he stops when he sees you up with the students.

"Professor" calls Maria. "We're all talking about the Hounds, and what needs to be done to resolve the situation. Will you join us?"

Tobias nodded in agreement with Maria's words as he said, "We need to resolve this situation, professor, do you mind if we have a nice chat, aye?"

The professor looks shocked, turns and bolts out the door.

“I wasn’t expecting that” admits Maria. She has no desire to chase after him.

“Still,” she asks the assembled students, “are we going to dispose of the key, then? I don’t think we can rely on the Professor to do the right thing for you.”
