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?

Maria

The thought of being able to act breaks Maria out of her paralysis, and she takes the amulet in her other hand.

"What now?" she asks.

"When one is chosen, the key hole will reveal itself," they say as they fade from view.

Behind you a great rush of wind swirls around you, spinning the world upside down. You find yourself facing Daoloth.
The lines that make him up, you find yourself looking not at him, but the spaces between him. There you can see the secrets of the universe, all is revealed to you.

OOC:   Everyone take a Sanity 1d10/1d100 check

Professor:
BenTheRat rolled 1d100:
100

Joe:
BenTheRat rolled 1d100:
38


Prof loss:
BenTheRat rolled 1d100:
23

Joe loss:
BenTheRat rolled 1d10:
3
 


Joe screams out, while the professor, begins the pronounce loudly as he begins to walk towards Daoloth, "The knowledge, the incredible knowledge"

OOC:   If you do lose more than 5 points, don't forget to take an INT check. There was no need for the professor, he dropped way too much.

Professor, please do kindly remember that you’re the one who dragged us all into this. We don’t care whether you want what happens next or not. You can’t play victim when you’re the guy behind all of this. I thought you wanted to transcend to this realm. Go accept your fate.” Tobias said.

Bret loses his grip on his sanity in the face of that terrible knowledge.

OOC:   HD, it's 1d100 SAN loss not 1d10. Come lose your mind like the rest of us!

OOC:   Sorry, I got confused as Joe only rolled 1d10. I've amended my post above - Maria is properly done for too.

OOC:   Yes its 1d10 if you pass, and 1d100 if you fail.

You gain Cthulhu Mythos on a 1 for 1 point you suffer here.

If you passed your Int check, or if your mind is shattered, you start walking towards Daoloth.

I think we are just waiting on Helpless to make his check.

Tobias attempted to tackle Bret to the ground and screamed "Watch out!" towards Eddie, Maria, and Dr. Porter. He motioned towards Joey to do something whilst he tried all he could to save his friends.

OOC:   Do he need to pass a STR roll in order to save Bret and the others?

Joe runs up and grabs Maria, "She has the key."

He takes drags her back to a pillar, where a key hole appears. It looks like the key would fit into it.

OOC:   No, they are walking forward, but not fighting you if you drag one of them back.

Tobias held Bret to the ground whilst he looked at Eddie and Dr. Porter, who was walking towards the chasm, with dread. "I don't suppose there's anyone else willing to help Eddie?"

Joe grabs Maria's hand and shoves the key into the hole, the pillar begins to shimmer. "Come grab my hand," Joe yells out. "Eddie's gone."

Tobias grabbed Bret and held onto Joe's hand. Hoping like hell that they'll get out of this alive, sane, and intact.

OOC:   Tobias, Bret and Joe suffer another d10 sanity points.

Joe:
BenTheRat rolled 1d10:
5
 


As Tobias grabs a hold of Joe's hand, more mysteries of the universe reveal and wash over you, as Daoloth encompasses the world around you...

Things black out. When you awake you are in the swamp in the clearing where you left. The sun was shining.
Any temporary insanity is gone.

Tobias, Bret, Joe and Maria are in field. The professor, Eddie and Doctor didn't make it back.
