The strange death of a student on the Miskatonic University campus involves the investigators again in a chain of horrific events. What is the link with the bizarre experiments conducted by the notorious Herbert West?

Spoiler:
Yes, he loses an HP.


The three remaining body parts come at Harden again.

Spoiler:
Attack 1 50: Attack 1: 1d100 34
Attack 2: Attack 2: 1d100 26
Attack 3: Attack 3: 1d100 65

Attack 1 damage: Attack 1 damage: 1d4 3
Attack 2 damage: Attack 2 damage: 1d4 2
HP 14 -5: 11


Harden grunts in pain as teeth sink into his thigh and a strong hand grasps his testicles. He aims his revolver again, hoping to destroy the attackers bent on tearing him apart.

Spoiler:
Revolver 65 (point blank range): Revolver: 1d100 97
Revolver: 1d100 43

Damage 1: 1d10+2 Damage: 1d10 3 5
Damage 2: 1d10+2 Damage 2: 1d10 9 11


The offending head and arm disappear in a cloud of red mist. Harden gasps in relief as the pain in his groin abates. He's thankful that it wasn't the head which attacked his sensitive parts.

OOC:   I think round 2 is taken care of, lets see if we'll survive round 3.

Harrison manages to pull the reanimated arm off his leg and holding it with one hand, he swings his hatchet down and severs its fingers. Standing up, he kicks it across the room in disgust and looks around to see if anyone needs help.

Isadora successfully evades attacks on her way up the stairs, but the loose arm continues to choke her.

Hopefully she reaches the cars. Her plan is to open a door and SLAM it shut against the arm that's torturing her!

Spoiler:
is this possible? What should I roll?

Spoiler:
Roll DEX x3. If successful, the arm will come loose first try. A critical success will mangle it.


The last assailant, a collection of slithering, slimy intestines, rolls its way towards Harden and attempts to ensnare him.

Spoiler:
Parts 4 attack 50: Attack 4: 1d100 58


He is able to avoid their attack, and dispatches the foul mess with the last two shots from his revolver.

Spoiler:
Revolver 65: Revolver: 1d100 60
Revolver: 1d100 97
Damage 1d10+2: Damage: 1d10 6 8


Although the second shot misses, the first powerful slug disperses the intestines around the cellar, adding to the bloody carnage.

Spoiler:
End of round 3 for Harden. He will reload in the next round.

Alice shrieks in agony as the hand claws its way up her leg, slicing furrows in her calf. At the same time, the severed head that had missed her before clamps its teeth on her side. In desperation, she breaks open the shotgun, hastily slides in a shell, and slams it shut. Then she presses the barrel up against the head and blasts it to bits. The hand crawls over her knee and gouges her thigh. She looks on in horror as it burrows under her skirt. "Nononogetoffgetoff!" she screams, reloading a fresh shell. She shoves the shotgun barrel against the hand, holding it sideways so that the blast will hit the hand but not her leg. Pulling the trigger one more time, she pulverizes the grasping hand before it can reach anything sensitive. Her leg is gashed, her stocking and the fabric of her skirt ruined, and she is covered with blood and gore, but she has survived the onslaught relatively intact.

Spoiler:
Wait, I haven't done round 2 yet! I thought I had to wait until everyone else finished updating their damage from round 1, and that didn't happen until today. I'll do that now, and then round 3. By the way, Harden's first shot in round 1 should have hit, as it was point blank range. Also, the parts' attacks against him in round 2 should be 1D3-1D4 damage, not 1D4. He shouldn't take more than 1 damage in round 2 from those two hits, and he probably won't even take that.

In the first round, I fired both barrels from my shotgun, one at a time. I fired the first barrel in the firearms portion of the round, since I had it ready, and the second barrel in the melee portion, after the parts attacked since they have better DEX than I do. You can reload both barrels in the same round, but that's it, or you can reload a single barrel and then fire it in the same round, but only in the melee portion (again after the parts).

Part's attack (50% chance), Round 2:
Mr. Handy rolled 1d100:
42

Damage from part:
Mr. Handy rolled 1d3:
3
-
Mr. Handy rolled 1d4:
4

That causes 0 damage. The other part that grabbed me last round does 1 automatic damage, dropping me to 12 HP.
Shotgun roll (43 x 2 = 86% skill) shooting at a part, point blank, Round 2:
Mr. Handy rolled 1d100:
69

Damage to part:
Mr. Handy rolled 4d6:
1, 4, 2, 1

In Round 3 I take 1 automatic damage again from the last part, dropping me to 11 HP.
Shotgun roll (43 x 2 = 86% skill) shooting at a part, point blank, Round 3:
Mr. Handy rolled 1d100:

Spoiler:
Sorry Mr. H! I got carried away with the excitement. Let's take stock: Harden and Harrison have succeeded in destroying their attackers, while Henry is still being attacked by 1. Isadora is still being attacked and has fled outside. This is all round 3. In round 2, Alice has destroyed her attackers. So perhaps for her round 3 she could assist Henry? There are still the 4 parts attacking Fogarty which will need to be disposed of. I think this is an accurate picture.

That's okay, I'm caught up now. My post covers both rounds 2 and 3, so I'll have to wait until round 4 to help. The others may have also completed round 3. I think Fogarty needs help the most.

Spoiler:
As Fogarty is unable to defend himself, all attacks on him will succeed. HP 15
Round 1 Attack 1: Attack 1: 1d3 1
Attack 2: Attack 2: 1d3 2
Attack 3: Attack 3: 1d3 1
(Only 3 attacked in this round). HP 11

Round 2 Attack 1: Attack 1: 1d3 1
Attack 2: Attack 2: 1d3 1
Attack 3: Attack 3: 1d3 1
Attack 4: Attack 4: 1d3 3
HP 5

Round 3 Attack 1: Attack 1: 1d3 2
Attack 2: Attack 2: 1d3 2

Fogarty is beyond help. In the next round, the Parts will begin to attack the other companions.


OOC:   So I think we can now begin round 4. The parts attacking Fogarty will now seek new prey...  


Harden dumps the spent rounds from his revolver and inserts an autoloader. As he does so, he turns to look at Owen, who is surveying the carnage with undisguised glee.

“You son of a bitch!” Harden roars, his face a mask of fury. “I’ll kill you!”

One of the body parts attacking Fogarty have finished their dreadful handiwork, and the young officer lays still, the life mostly choked out of him. The part begins to crawl rapidly towards Harden, intent on making him their next victim.

Spoiler:
Attack 1 50:
Attack 3: Attack 3: 1d100 38


Damage 1d3: Parts damage: 1d3 1
Harden HP 11


The attack connects, and Harden again finds his bruised testes to be the object of some very unwanted attention. He roars in agony, but manages to get his revolver shut.

Spoiler:
Harden will take automatic damage from the Part in the next round.

Spoiler:
I thought the parts, once they latched on, did 1 automatic damage per round each, not 1D3. In the round they actually succeed at their attacks, they do 1D3-1D4 damage. This is the case for the three that hit him in Round 1, and the one that hits him for the first time in Round 2. Fogarty probably shouldn't be dead yet. In Round 4, I won't be able to act until after parts do.

Spoiler:
Yes you’re right, I’d forgotten. It means that one part attacks Harden, but the other 3 finish him off. So there is one part on Henry, one on Harden and 3 on Fogarty. But he’ll be dead before you can save him. I edited the above post.

Spoiler:
Henry suffers an automatic 1 HP loss due to the attached part, it doesn't need to roll attack (as Mr. H reminded me.) But now it's off, so Henry is in round 4 with one remaining part to deal with. Hopefully his friends will come to his aid!

Isadora Carmichael

evil_scientist rolled 1d100:

The hand choking Isadora is caught in the car door, and finally lets go! The other limbs are still grabbing and clawing at her... But unsuccessfully. Isadora wants to gain "high ground", and tries to climb on top of the car. Hopefully even the blasphemous mobility of the severed limbs' won't allow them to follow! She screams again, for the others to hear: "I'm here, I'm outside! The things are following me!"

Alice hears Isadora's cries.

Spoiler:
Someone reduced to 0 or fewer HP doesn't officially die until the end of the following round, which is this one. Can I use First Aid to try to save Fogarty?

Alice will be attacked by Parts before she would be able to help Fogarty. She would probably be better off helping to destroy the ones attacking the others.

"Isadora ran back upstairs!" calls Alice as she pulls herself upright and puts another shell in her shotgun. "She needs help!" She closes the shotgun and blasts at the limb attacking Henry, only narrowly missing.

I'll roll for Harrison to keep things moving. Hatchet 50: Hatchet: 1d100 77


Harrison takes a swing at the body part attacking Henry but misses. His hatchet creates sparks as it hits the stone floor. Owen guffaws in the background.

OOC:   I believe that takes us to round 5!
