5 Genius Loci: The Dark of the Moon

Doors to Darkness yawn open to reveal three hair raising tales!

Genius Loci - Not all is well at the Kirby State Lunatic Asylum and it’s down to the investigators to heed a friend in need’s cry.
Ties That Bind - Strange rock formations have been found in Mrs. Carrington’s prized fountain. But these are like no rocks seen before!
None More Black - The death of a Rice University student leads the investigators into unsavoury neighbourhoods and dark business dealings.

Are you the Dreamer or are you the Dream? Shadows flitting at the corners of your vision, haunting laughter just outside your window and inhuman, eerie sounds in the middle of the night, all of this and more await the unwary once you open the Doors to Darkness!

The Atmosphere at the Asylum is one of silence and eerie stillness.

Coach parks his car a discrete sistance from the asylum. Feeling uncomfortable in the white uniform (not least because he has to remove his beloved cap), he waits impatiently for Ranger Norris to complete his recce.

Carl is in his parked car, not doing anything but keeping an eye on the place. The whole point of his part of the plan is to establish his presence and be ready to enter as soon as he hears a commotion inside.

Spoiler:
I won't actually be finished until either something goes wrong inside or those who go inside first manage to extract Larry. It's best if I'm not seen with the rest of you in order to preserve my cover.

Joseph nudges Coach.

"We should get moving. Jimmy, can you lead us in?"

Spoiler:
Ah, my bad!
"Yep, let's get this show on the road..."

Filled with foreboding, Coach sighs and grab his sports bag. Trying to make it look like it's perfectly normal for an orderly to be carrying such a thing, he gets out of the car and heads to the asylum with Joseph.

OOC:   To clarify, the remnants of the stone are where exactly?

OOC: The remnants of the stone pieces could be anywhere. There is no documentation of where the pieces went to.

Outside, you feel the presence of something you can't put your finger on, but you know it's not good.

OOC: Did you bring weapons?

Spoiler:
Yes, I have all my weapons (the rifle, the revolvers, and the baton), as well as extra ammo. I'm expecting trouble.

OOC:   Hmm, okay then. I thought we knew where one large piece was. Yes Jimmy brought a lot of weapons. He has a guitar case which holds his tommy gun as well as a handgun and knife. There's probably also some sort of explosives in the trunk of his car, just in case. He'll change into his orderly outfit upon arrival and the others can gawk at his new "associate". We have a name for the expert, Umbral? I'll make my IC post tomorrow sometime. I'm exhausted now. Sorry.

OOC:   Joseph has his orderly outfit plus a set of brass knuckles he got in the army. And a camera.

OOC:   Coach has his baseball bat ‘Betsie’ stashed in his sports bag. If it’s not too conspicuous he also has his old shotgun stuffed in there too.

A young man named Atwood is your man. He was studying occult sciences at the University of Texas, about to transfer to Miskatonic at Arkham.

Jimmy the Chin nonchalantly stepped out of the rear of his automobile, a mint condition Rolls Royce Phantom I (see below). He had evidently recovered from whatever he had reacted to earlier on, perhaps it was because of his new ace in the hole. He gestured to another man inside the rear of the vehicle to get out.

Image

"Gents, I'd like to introduce yous all to a friend of mine. Name's Atwood. I filled him in best I could on what we found out here. As you said Coach, none of us are geniuses. Fortunately, this guy is. He's gonna help us figure this all out." he announced with confidence.

With that, the gangster moved around to the rear of the vehicle and produced a medium-sized guitar case from the trunk.

Coach nods to the newcomer.

"I hope you know what you're letting yourself in for pal."

Atwood looks about, somewhat out of sorts. "I, ah, really have no idea," he says as he cleans his spectacles and straightens his bow tie.

“Huh.”

While they wait for an opportune moment to slip in, Coach sizes up the newcomer. He isn’t impressed.

“Well, be prepared for some pretty weird stuff. I don’t know what our mutual pal has told you, but do you recognise the symbol in this photograph?”

Jimmy the Chin changed into his orderly outfit while the Coach conversed with their newly drafted associate. Upon further reflection, the gangster surmised that it was probably for the best that the Ranger wasn't present, else he would likely find himself being reprimanded for his tactics. Desperate times called for desperate measures, though.

"He'll prove his worth, you'll see, Coach." he announced.

"You better be right..."

Coach gives Atwood another glance before turning to the asylum.

"C'mon, let's go."

He heads towards the entrance, trying to look as if he walks through the main door every day.
