Hunter: Southern Hospitality

GM's Adventure Log - Session #1

Werewolf falls, everyone dies.

This is a stripped down version of what happened in the session. If any of you players want to write his character’s views on it feel free to.

  • After the party chatted a bit with Zeb, he felt sick and fell to the ground screaming.
    • Tom Duggan, the city coroner, told sheriff Arthur Akerman to bring Zeb down to the morgue so he could have a look at him.
  • Shots and horrible noises started coming from the morgue, Zeb had transformed into a werewolf.
    • Maria McReese picked the cell lock with a hairpin and ran away trying to hotwire a police car.
    • John Hart stayed back helping a shaken and wounded Cam McKraken to escape (and rationalize the existence of werewolves).
  • Before they could run outside the party witnessed Arthur Akerman being mauled to death by Zeb.
  • While the party ran towards the hotwired car, Zeb started chasing them, taking down one of the building’s walls in the process. Fortunately Maria and Cam awkwardly managed to drive the car away.
  • At the ranch Jeff Daniels (Cam’s doctor) looked at the party’s wounds.
  • John Hart passed all nights trying to research werewolves on the internet
    • The only result was a “werewolves, vampires and other monsters” convention that happened a couple of months before around those parts.
      • somehow it didn’t seemed a trustworthy source of informations
  • Cam’s gave a phone call to Susan Andrews, owner of The Tavern (the bar in which Zeb mentioned to have apparently killed a man, Zeb didn’t remembered much of the event though). Susan tells Cam how a couple of hours later some strangers came and pick a fight with Zeb, sparking a massive barfight in which a citizen of Balmorhea got killed. Zeb’s was found fainted near the victim.
  • Before going to sleep the party regrouped and decided to investigate this werewolf thing further.
  • The morning after Cam got sure to teach Maria how to handle a gun and stocked up on “self defense equipment”
  • Chatting with a couple of policeman the party discovered that no evidence was left at the Reeves County Sheriff Office. There was no trace of all the people that were supposed to be corpses, and there’s now only a handful of policeman left in town.
    • The two policemen also mentioned that they contacted the FBI about this weird occurrences.
  • The first stop when in town was the Balmorhea’s Walmart where Zeb Baker mentioned he worked. They failed to get any info from the manager but after Cam and John created a distraction Maria managed to sneak in the Manager’s office and steal Zeb’s file.
  • Zeb’s file mentioned he was fired because a month ago he started getting in fights with customers and employees.
    • John Hart used the file to form a weak psychic link with Zeb.
  • Next step was going to Zeb’s Apartement, Maria picked the lock.
    • They found the apartment in terrible conditions.
      • The fridge was full of stinking half-eaten rotten meat, with human teeth marks on it
      • Zeb apparently had been reading a lot of books about wolves
      • Hidden under a piece of furniture they found a Mysterious Letter.
        • The letter read “We kNOw yOuR PaiN. we’Re cOmINg to gEt YOU. BriNGinG y0u hOme. BrOthEr” wrote with letters cut out from newspaper.
  • They went back to the bar and chatted a bit with Susan learning a bit more about the barfight. Then drank a bit and regrouped until night.
  • Once night fell they head up to the Reeves County Sheriff Office.
    • Cam distracted the two policeman guarding the crime scene by faking drunkenness
    • John and Maria sneaked through the back window (that Maria managed to opened without really grasping how).
  • As the policemen said, there was no evidence nor blood left in the station (not even Cam’s belongings). Going down the morgue they found that someone stole the corpse of Zeb’s victim.
    • The investigation in the morgue also gave some other results: hidden under some furniture the party found they found a revolver and the victim’s autopsy file.
  • The party booked rooms in a motel, where they regrouped and took a look at what they found in the morgue.
    • The Revolver is apparently charged with six silver bullets
    • The autopsy file indicates that the death might have been accidental.
  • While sleeping John Hart’s link with Zeb Baker activated, he saw electricity, pain, slashing silver, a cage and the sound of machinery. The vision ended up being quite disturbing for him, messing a bit with his mind.
