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?

OOC:   I suggest going back and reading the previous posts. The Professor got to the top of the pillar while in Hound form, and other characters have been reacting to that.

OOC:   Wait, so the guy jumped up to the top of the pillar while in Hound form and then that happened. Okay. So I think it's my fault for misinterpreting the posting then. K...Cool, off to retconn my last two posts or so then.

Coming to his senses at last, Eddie climbs up the pillar in effort to reach the mad professor.

Tobias attempts to run while Eddie charges the pillar, the ground underneath you swirled and no matter how hard you struggled, the ground around you sloshed and turned. A pattern of blues, greens and purples. Everyone gets sucked down into the gate that appeared below you.

All was black as you awoke. Darkness surrounded your senses, not just your eyes, but everything, even how you felt and what you touched, "felt" dark.
You can hear the professor cackling, "We made it, he found us worthy and brought us to him. Daoloth, we are here to serve you."

The ground you lay on was cold, slick stone. It almost felt like glass.

OOC:   Everyone use up 3 magic points and suffer 1 sanity point lost.

Feeling his way through the darkness, Eddie tries to make his way toward the sound of the professor's voice.

Maria shivers in the cold and in the dawning realization that the Professor has done something profoundly disturbing – they are no longer in the swamp. The darkness is oppressive and she begins to feel a mounting dread. But if they got here, they can get back. They probably need the key.

“Bret!” she calls out, in a low but urgent voice.

"Mes couilles sur ton front, Monsieur caca boudin!" Tobias cursed furiously in French as he realised that he's under the effect of some sort of spell by the professor. He tries to find his friends.

Coming to his senses in that terrible dark place Bret hears Miss Adams' voice urging him to act, fumbles for the key and begins to trace the lines again, hoping it will be enough to get them out of wherever this place is...

Slowly images return to your brain, it's not that it was dark, only that your brains had no way to interpret what you were seeing.

As the impulses slowly and tentatevly revealed them to you, you realize you are by your friends, and in some cases inside or through them. Large holes are in their bodies, arms and legs. In cases organs were outside, and your hand or pieces of it, could pass through someone else as if they were not there.

The ground was black, and looked liked polished obsedian, it seemed to be the only material you could not pass through. Pillars were staggered around, with strange and shocking carvings of beasts and men. They stretched up into the dark sky.

Bret cannot quite figure out how to trace the lines with his thumb, as the touch still felt black, not lines. You did the best you could, but nothing seems to happen.

OOC:   Everyone take a sanity 1/1d6 check please.
