4 Genius Loci: Renewed Interest

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 place looked pretty secure, but perhaps we could find somewhere to sneak in? Failing that, could we get hold of some clothes that look like staff uniforms?"

Staff uniforms were white smock and pants, black shoes.

Excellent! You remember that Woolworth's Downtown sells those uniforms.

"That's a great idea," says Carl. "For my part in the plan, though, it's best if I wear my Ranger uniform."

“Okay, do you wanna scout around while we go buy some uniforms?”

Coach, and anyone else who wants to tag along, will drive to Woolworths to get some white uniforms.

"All right, I'll go there and get the stakeout started early," says Carl. "I'll stay off their property and just keep an eye on the place for now. That way I'll establish my presence there before anything happens. Who knows, maybe I'll happen to see something."

You easily find and purchase uniforms and shoes. OOC: What time if day/night do you plan to proceed?

HoneyDog wrote:"You've been quiet, Jimmy" observes Joseph. "What's your take?"


Jimmy the Chin appeared to be deep in thought, but he suddenly snapped out of it when the others seemed ready to mobilize. He made sure that he had the attention of each man before he spoke up.

"Look fellas, it hasn't been easy to come to grips with what we're up against, and I'm tellin' yas, we ain't prepared to fight no demon on his turf. Before all this, I'd be the first guy to suggest goin' in there with a bunch of heaters, snatch Larry and don't look back. I just don't think that's gonna do the job this time, and unless we smarten ourselves up in the next few hours we're gonna be in trouble." he said.

Carl shrugs. "Not my sort of crowd," he says. "We might want to talk to local Indians. Every tribe will have a medicine man."

Joseph blows out his cheeks in frustration.

“What are we going to talk to these people about, if we can even find them? The notes we found say that the disc needs to be in place to stop whatever it is. The writer didn’t know where it came from, so how the hell can we find out in one damn day?”

He points at the others, his voice rising.

“And how the hell do we get Croswell and put the disc back at the same time? Forget about it for now! Let’s get Croswell! We have the uniforms, we can sneak in the same way Jimmy did before! Are you coming or are you gonna just carry on chewing the fat like a bunch of old ladies?”

"Come on then, let's go." Coach grumbles. "We need to sneak in when the orderlies' shift changes or when they throw visitors out - that way there'll be more folks wandering around and we stand a chance of not being noticed. I'm guessing that'd be late afternoon?"

Joseph nods.

"I need to go home, and get some stuff first. Why don't we meet there later? The Ranger can scope out the scene first."

He looks at Jimmy.

"Can you lead us in?" he asks.

Jimmy the Chin paced about a bit as the others seemed hell bent on their plan of action. However, he couldn't shake the feeling that this was the wrong approach. Damn that hallucination he saw before, it was really messing with his head.

"Sure, my boys have had the place under surveillance long enough. Shouldn't be too hard." he replied to Joseph, then added, "But you's will have to excuse me for a bit. I've got some business to take care of first. One of my drivers take you where you need to go."

He started to leave, but then turned back and said, "Oh, and Coach... I wear a 42 suit jacket and my trousers are 36/33." With that, the gangster departed the room with one of his henchmen in tow.

OOC:   Jimmy is gonna hunt down a local occultist or researcher. He wants some expert advice. If need be, he'll make an offer that individual won't be able to refuse. He may even forcibly recruit this person, with the assistance of a bodyguard or two of course. Willing to do this quick-like via PM or a few rolls in one of the threads. Don't want it to take up too much time.

You find that the person best suitable to help you is in San Marcos, 2 hours away.
