IC: Ch 5: Where the Hell are we?

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 tries to take hold of Tobias and pull him away from the crevice.

Tobias regained control like a Fish out of water, and finally found some precarious middle ground between sanity and insanity as he struggled to comprehend the nature of the surrounding area. His lucidity now sharper than ever.

“Thanks, my friend. I almost lost it there.” He replied to Eddie gratefully, as he cooperated with him to get as far away as possible from that...place. He got an ominous feeling about the place. He heard the voices of the monks, and quickly asked, “By what do you mean by your questions? We were dragged into this with no prior knowledge of the matters at hand. Some crazy bastard summoned us here through a ritual. I think. Now we are confused. Mostly. It would be good if you could explain what the purpose of your whole ‘chosen one’ gimmick as well. Thanks for cooperating with us, by the way, old chap. You folks seemed to be the only bunch of people who aren’t actively trying to kill us at this point. Terribly sorry for intruding, though.”

At Miss Adams' suggestion of needing blood to make the key work Bret pulls out the chicken he bought from the farmer that morning. "Maybe we'll finally find a use for this."

Hearing the monks' question he points to Professor Ingham. "I'm pretty sure he thinks he's the chosen one. You can have him."

Maria tries not to stare too hard at the bizarre faces of the men.

"Can you help us get back to where we came from?" she asks.

As you are asking your questions you see them fade away.

Leaving you standing there in the blackness. You hear the clawing coming up the crevice.

Maria’s heart sinks. But she decides to act. She takes out her pocketknife, and wincing with the pain, cuts the palm of her hand.

Bret, give me the key. Quickly! I'll try tracing the lines.”

Tobias cursed, and ran towards Bret to see if he could help.

Bret hands the key to Miss Adams, wishing she had used the chicken instead of cutting herself. He hurls the chicken over the edge of the crevice (hoping whatever's coming up likes chicken).

Maria ignores the pain from her protesting hand. “I hope this works” she says.

She starts to trace the lines on the key using her blood.

Spoiler:
make a throw roll to hurl the chicken the 30' to the crevice.


Maria cuts her hand and smears blood on the key, but nothing happens.

You all hear a *pop* sound and you can see the others start to smear when moving, others going faster and faster till they disappear, and then appear again a minute or two later and then slowing down as their speech becomes slurred, or are you just moving faster?

Bret hurls the chicken, but not being very aerodynamic falls just short of the crevice and runs off into the darkness squawking.

Tobias acclimated himself to the crazy mind-rending things happening around him and closed his eyes, knowing that any attempt to understand these dimensional realms will drain him of his sanity.

As you were wresting with the ever changing dimensions around you, you turn around to see the 6 figures in robes again.

"Your presence is causing Daoloth to grow, he will soon reveal himself to you. You need to have someone willing to see the universe as it truly exists, he will be the chosen one. The rest must follow the directions to leave, or he will grow to envelope you all."

They are all wearing black and white robes and all but one are wearing a geometric shaped pendant around their necks.

"Say, can we volunteer up the crazy professor who dragged us in here? We are fine with leaving without understanding the universe. As long I get to submit my papers on time, I don't care about anything else." Tobias said.

Maria

"How about it Professor? You're the one who wanted to come here and meet Daoloth. Well, he's right over there." She indicates the chasm.

Eddie nods, gesturing to the professor. "There's your chosen one right there," he says. "He wants to know the secrets of the universe more than anyone."

Spoiler:
he looks the same as the others, his eyes and face shifting all the time, the blurriness gives you a headache. The only difference seems to be that he does not have his amulet.
