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?

Spoiler:
you have just started babbling incohernetly. You now have a phobia of dogs, especially large ones.


Eddie begins to just start babbling, the key in his hand, he seems oblivious to the danger Tobias is in.

OOC:   New round, if someone has a gun ready they may fire first. If not we will move to intiative order and the Hound will go first.
If you have a gun ready, please shoot now, if that is what you want to do. Tobias is holding onto the hounds legs so if you miss badly you could end up hitting Tobias, but the hound is much larger and Tobias is on the ground. So you have a pretty clear shot with anything except a shotgun.

Maria is frantic as she grabs the key from Eddie’s hands.

“Tell me how this works you son of a bitch!” she snarls at Joe.

OOC:   Note, this happens after anyone with a weapon ready fires. I'll give it till tonight, and then push forward.  


Spoiler:
make me a sanity test, just pass or fail.

The hound takes a bite at Tobias.

BenTheRat rolled 1d100:

His teeth misses Tobias' neck by only an inch or two. It's hot breath blows on your neck, the steam burning down your shoulder.

OOC:   Everyone may make an action now.  


Spoiler:
you don't lose any sanity, but you have an overwhelming urge to move towards the pillar.

Tobias screamed in fright, and struggled as he attempted to outrun the Hound and reach a safe distance away from the goddamned thing.

Maria feels herself compelled towards the pillar, standing ominously in the darkness. She needs to trace the lines on it anyway, but this is going to bring her closer to the Professor / Hound. She can't seem to break away though.

OOC:   No pressure...

I'm not sure if we're supposed to trace the lines on the pillar while holding the key or if the key itself has lines on it? Either way Bret will try to assist in what Maria was intending as he doesn't have a gun.

With the others seeming overcome around him Bret grabs the key from Miss Adams and desperately begins to trace the lines.

Bret can feel the power of the key as soon as he rips it from Maria's hands. He begins to trace the lines before it can take hold of him.

Spoiler:
please make a sanity test, if you fail you will be drawn to the large pillar.

Spoiler:
you come out of your trance as soon as Bret grabs the key from your hand, suffer 1 sanity point. You are now free to act.


The Hound howls out in anguish and pain, the sound piercing through the woods. He turns and leaps up the pillar until he is at the very top, just as he is transformed back into his human form.

OOC:   Everyone except for Eddie may make an action now, Bret, you need to test before taking an action.

Maria shudders as she feels herself released from whatever force compelled her to the pillar. Taking stock of the situation, she sees the Professor at the top of the pillar, and turns to Bret, looking at the key in his hand.

“Thank you Bretshe says sincerely. “I couldn’t do it.”

Tobias gave the professor the one-finger salute before shaking an angry fist at him. "I'll get you!!"

The professor hung on the top of the pillar, his face pale and streaked with sweat. "You ruined everything, everything."
He slaps his bloody hand against the ruins on the top of the pillar.

OOC:   Eddie and Bret you are no longer affected and are free to act.

Tobias growled and ran off as quickly as he can.

OOC:   If the Professor is at the top of the pillar, how is it possible he is being beaten up?

OOC:   ...I think that's either a bug, or I've grossly underestimated the professor's height. Unless the professor is two metres tall, I don't imagine he could reach the top of the pillar.

UPDATE: alight, I've retconned the beating-up of professor. I think it's okay now.
