V.S. suggested that, “ Since everyone always knows what we are doing and comes after us, I suggest we just spend our time here, eating donuts, and interrogate Dennis Harrel and Jennifer Garcia when they come here.” The group arranged to meet up at 9AM, and split up. Jane contacted Chuck Taylor and arranged a rendevous. David went to One World Trade Center and spent the evening in the arms of Serena Elessidil. Terri returned to her apartment, and spent time filling Cameron in on what happened since she left. Charles returned to his apartment, finding Dr Patricia Fairlaine waiting for him (she contacted him on his phone as he was leaving and arranged to meet up. Patricia and Charles spent an evening of quality time together.
Meanwhile, V.S. went St Patricks Cathedral, sought out Monsignor Ritchie, asking for “enough holy relics to protect six people.” Monsignor Ritchie was a bit taken back by this. V.S. eplained a bit, and Monsignor Ritchie said he could perhaps provide him wiht one Relic, but that he might be able to give him additional information. He told V.S. that the Murderous Spirit that relies in the Camp, has a ffear of water, and that it will not follow anyone out into or onto the Lake. He also told him of an island in the middle of the lake, that “can only be seen by those who could see the unseen” and that the Murderous Spirirt was susceptible to the weapons left behind by the now extinct indians. V.S. was then provided with a sacred relic, a golden Conquistador’s cross, The Cross of Coronado. Returning to his apartment, V.S. received a call from Cameron, learning that Terri had told her about the Andromeda issues. She then learned when the group would be leaving from The Flame of Knowledge. He awoke early to pray before the group departed.
Andromeda returned to her apartment, bagged up her armor, The Bracelets, the Maticore Trophy, and The Spear, and headed out to Camp Half Blood. Arriving around 10:30 PM, Andromeda began approaching the bonfire, when she ran into Chiron, the centaur, who berated her for her cowardice and willingness to quit. telling her to live up to her Destiny, take up her weapons, and become the hero she was destined to be. After several minutes of self reflection and some encouragement (and berating) from Chiron, Andromeda took up her gear, and returned to her apartment. Returning home, Andromeda contacted Susanna to fill her in on where the group was going, but reached her voice mail.
At 8:30 AM, V.S.‘s prayers was interrupted by the smells of Breakfast cooking. After throwing up from the fright, V.S. joined Cameron in the kitchen., to see her covered in a black cloak and hood, singing showtunes. She explained she was hiding her appearance as she got self-repaired. She then lowered the hood to reveal the flesh and stitches holding it in place, then put the hood back up. At 9AM, the group met up at The Flame. Jane, smelling the breakfast, jumped up and down going, "Yay! Cameron’s back!" Cameron then handed Andromeda a 1/2 a grapefruit as Jane revelled in her donuts. Andromeda gave a heartfelt and sincere apology (to be played out next week due to players being absent).
Jane requisitioned an SUV while Cameron and V.S. rode to Camp Crystal Lake in her Aston-Martin. Arriving outside the Camp, as indicated by the dilapidated sign, arriving at noon. The group moved the “Road Closed” sawhorse and sign from their path, and drove down the mile long dirt road to the parking lot. a dirt path led form the parking lot to the 6 wooden cabins (which looked newly made). A path from the cabins circled a fire pit, and led down to the boathouse and dock on the lake. Two additional building could be seen in the distance, through the trees, behind the cabins.
Approaching the first cabin, the group heard the distinctive sound of two young people having sex. V.S. “said, let’s go there, they’re going to die first”. Jane entered, finding 3 bunk beds, a fireplace, carvings of initials on the walls from generations of kids, and lying in the middle of the floor, a catholic school girls uniform, shoes and undergarments, and a boys jeans, boots, and vintage 1970’s Star Wars T-Shirt. Andromeda estimated the ages of the clothes owners as 15-17, and pointed out the jeans had not been made since the early 70’s.
Moving on to the next cabin, the group found nothing extra-ordinary. Looking at the map Andromeda had obtained, there were 5 more campgrounds of cabins, the buildings behind the cabins were where the staff lived and a maintenance shed. The Mess Hall was located on the eastern side of the lake, with the Director’s home across the lake from parking lot.
At V.S.’s suggestion, the group returned to the first cabin, seeing the door closed and hearing the sounds of sex again. Jane looked in the window, seeing a pair of teenagers on the floor having sex, wearing the clothes they found. As David opened the door, the bodies vanished, the clothes falling to the gorund. The group re-entered, V.S. opening The Sight, seeing the girl with her head at a bad angel, the boy opposite her, his chest full of stab wounds. Standing between them, was a man in jeans, boots, hockey mask, holding a knife. V.S. deduced that the creature in the mask was no longer human, and fed on the pain and fear it generates, which he found odd that the creature killed the girl so quickly.
Looking at the sun and his watch, V.S. saw it was now 6PM. Gunfire echoed accross the water, David pinpointed it to the Driector’s House accross the lake. The group raced down the dock to the motorboat sitting in the water. As the group crossed the lake, the gunfire and flashes of gunfire grew less and less. As V.S. mentioned the Island Monsignor Ritchie told him of, and Androemda and David were able to barely see. As the group approached the island, they coasted through it, rather than beaching as they should have. Jane estimated that the number of gunmen involved was about 12.
V.S. racked his brain, realizing that the island was probably protected by Whope, the Iriquios Goddess of Peace. This insight shot the image of Kathleen Kennedy, owner of The Shop Around The Corner . He contacted Kathleen on his cell phone, asking her what time it was. She said it was 1 PM. He then asked her if she knew of anything sacred to The Iriquios Goddess of Peace in Voorhees, New York. She deduced from his statements where they were, and warned him of what was there. She then told him there were three things she knew of sacred to Whope – A Dove or a Holly Branch (in bloom with berries). She also mentioned that something personal to one of the island’s denezins could be used to set foot on the Island. V.S. thanked her, then promised ot come by when the group was back in New York.
The group then landed on the other side of the lake, securing it ot the dock, and made their way to the manager’s house, keeping an eye out for holly (in the dock). After walking a few minutes, the group encountered two bodies, one male, one female, in black suits, with Uzi’s (fired empty). IDs found on them identified them as Agents Sharon Wagner and Thomas Carter, CIA agents for The Shop
As the group continued toward the Director’s House, David sensed a presence behind the gorup, back by the lake, that reminded him of Norman Bates. The bodies of three more Shop Operatives were discovered before the group got to the Manager’s House. Cameron told the group she sensed an electromagnetic signature inside the building.
David examined the lock, breaking his lock-pick in the door. He looked at Andromeda, and asked her to break it down. Andromeda had a bad feeling about the door, as she looked at it. Andromeda, Jane, and David saw what looked like a prson trying to push out of the door.
The group circled around to the back door. As they were walking, David asked Cameron if she had an RPG in her bag. She replied, “No, but I have a LAW Rocket. Here” and she handed one to David. He asked, “What do I do with this?” and she responded, “Read the directions”. The group passed three more dead Shop Agents on the way. As David examined the door, he and Jane saw the same effect they saw on the front door.
David then grabbed a rock and threw it at the nearest door, barely dodging it as it flung back at him. The group then debated having V.S. blast the door with soulfire, as David sensed the Murderous Spirit approaching. V.S. blasted the door with Soulfire, causing an inhuman scream of terror, destroying the door. David stepped in, turning on the lights. Four more bodies were discovered inside, though these agents appeared to have been dead for 100 years. David looked at V.S. and asked “Are we still on Earth?” and V.S. closed his eyes and sensed that he just opened a rift into a very bad part of The NeverNever.
Cameron was able to confirm tht she still sensed the Electormagnetic field, and located it as in the basement. The group examined the surroundings, as Jennifer Garcia emerged from a room by the upper stairs, hair disheveled, skirt suit torn, bleeding from several cuts. She shouted, “Quick! Run! Get Out”. She then turned and fired her gun into the room only to be hit by some, unseen force, which hurled her across the room into the opposite bannister, collapsing to the ground floor. V.S. rushed to check on Jennifer (who was injured an unconcious) while Jane and Andromeda rushed upstairs to examine the room, only to have the door slam shut in their face. Androemda headed down to examine Garcia, and David futilly tried to open the door to the basement. Andromeda discovered evidence of torture on Jennifer, waterboarding, ropes marks on wrists, cuts and contusions on her body, and 4 surgically precise cuts on her right leg.
Seeing the cuts, V.S. rcked his brain, and recalled a old nursery rhyme, “One, Two Freddy’s coming for you. Three, Four, better lock your door, Five, Six, grab your crucifix, Seven, Eight, gonna stay up late, Nine, Ten never sleep again.” Further discussion deduced that they might have entered into JEnnifer’s Dream Realm, and V.S. recalled that this Freddy thing came in dreams.
V.S. tried to soulfire blast the basement door, only to have his soulfire fizzle. Additional attempts to open the basement door proved futile, so, the group decided to head upstairs to the door Jennifer had been firing through. The door seemed to be made of human flesh, the nob made of bone. V.S. held up the Cross of Coronado, and the door screamed. Holding the cross to the door caused it to smoke and then eventually busrt into flame, revealing a hallway.
The group entered the hallway, the doorway disappearing after the last person entered. The hallway was dimly lit in a murky blue light, it absorbing all light sources. As the group walked down the corridor, Andromeda began lamenting about her nightmares, only to see one come to life, on the other side of a stone archway, they saw a large group of humans in greek armor, fighting titans. Andromeda froze in fear as V.S. reacted, throwing his fiery hail at the titans. The fiery hail started to rain on the titans, then one suddenly blew the hail into the greeks. The group saw what seemed to be a younger version fo Andromeda get hit by the hail and go up in a pillar of fire, as Andromeda erupted into similar flames. Cameron whipped off her cloak an threw it onto Andromeda as the group extinguished the flames on her.
With David’s help, Andromeda turned away and the vision ended. Cameron then went, “I get it! You think of J. Edgar…” only to be interupted by Jane, shouting, “Stop! That’s classified!” Meanwhile, V.S. held up The Cross of Coronado, only to have it become a snake, which bit him. The group then stepped through the archway.
On the other side of the archway, into a High School Swimmeat, where several saw a teenage Jennifer Garcia ready to participate in the next race. The archway vanished behind them, but the gorup noticed a set of metal double doors on either side of them. The door burst open, and a dozen men in black jumpsuits and ski masks erupted into the room, shooting up the people. The others took cover, while Andromeda moved to attack one of the men, who fired at her, hitting her twice, shooting her in the side and breaking her ribs.
The men slaughtered the crowd, Jennifer unhurt, runs into the crowd, grabbing an injured woman and cradling her in her arms. As the woman died, four metal claws erupted from Jennifer’s chest. Jane raced up to Jennifer and said, “You’re doing this to yourself”. The room went dark, two doors where the double doors were in the now empty room. The group went through the left door, emerging into a corridor made entirely of wood, with Wild West style piano music in the distance. They walked down the cooridor to saloon style doors, into an old west saloon.
As the group watched, Harrel and Garcia entered, in Western garb, and the group overheard Jennifer say to Denny, “You were right. Thanks for convincing me to come. I’m having a ball. Though, next time, can we go to Roman world instead of West World?”
V.S. and Andromeda attempted to get Jennifer’s attention, failing. Harrel and the Cowboy in Black got into a tussel, the gunman killing Harrel. Garcia shouted, “You can’t do that!” David grabbed Garcia, slapping him accross the face, telling her to wake up. The face of Freddy Krueger appeared over Jennifer’s, “This one is mine!” and then he stabbed David in the chest, mentally affecting him. The room then went to empty blackness, a door where the door to the street was.
Emerging into an alcove with a pair of metal doors in front of them, the light coming through the crack changing colors, and base pumping music playing quite loudly. The group entered into the room, a stage full of three scantily or naked women dancing on the stage. The bouncer ensured that “Mr. Lytton” paid for hiimself and his guests. Taking a table near the back, the group sat down, ordering water form the waitress that came over. The dancers danced and then the DJ announced, “Now coming on stage…Serena, Siobhan, and Susanna”. David closed his eyes and did his best “There’s no place like home” imitation, the DJ came on again, announcing, “And joining them…Cameron” which confused Cameron as she watched a bikini wearing version of herself come up on stage and start dancing. The dancing continued,each dancer losing her clothes, as Andormeda saw Jennifer emerge from the VIP room, with Jane and Andromeda in bikinis.
Andromeda walked over to Jennifer, the bikini-clad Andromeda looking confused. Jennifer looked at each Andromeda, a bit confused, and Androemda attempted to convince Jennifer they were in a dream. Jennifer said, “This is not real” and it all vanished, revealling a small room, with Freddy Krueger in it. Andromeda immediately passed out from the blood loss from her inuries, as Freddy attacked Jane, stabbing her in the chest. Cameron aimed her M-16, firing and hitting. David switched into Cat form and prepared to pounce. Jane swung her sword, scrathing his arm. V.S. summoned his fiery hangman’s noose around Freddy neck, which caused him to vanish and release the group. They found themselves outside the door, with Jennifer Garcia regining conciousness downstairs. David checked the door to the basement, and heard a repeated beeping. David shouted, “Everyone flee, its going to blow”, only to see Garcia holding a small rod, a button atop it pressed. Terri grabbed Jennifer as the group moved to the front door (David sensing Jason at the back door). The group fled through the front door as the back door burst inwards, showing Jason slowly advancing towards the group, machete in hand.
An explosion ensued inside the building, but the building did not collapse, and Jason eventually emerged. Frantically serching, Jane found a holly tree and Terri zapped it with Winter’s power, causing it to bloom. Terri then summoned an ice bridge to the island, as the boat was gone, and the group passed onto the island. The group watched Jason walk to the water’s edge, and kept looking aorund as if he couldn;t see the group.
The island was fairly non-descript. A search around found the ruins of an indian village, revealing stone arrowheads, stone spearheads, and stone knives. David ranted, “There were supposed to be weapons here. All there are are rocks. There’s no shafts.” to which Jane responded, “Shaft, he was one bad mother.”
Andromeda made arrows and spears with the heads.
