ViPer RPG: Trail of Cthulhu

The First Day of The End of The World

3rd day: (Jan 23)
Carita stayed up all night working on an article of “what happened.”
Early morning, a cop finally shows up to collect the body and find ut what happened. Steve stole the cop’s play book, read it, and replaced. The team offers to help take the body to the morgue. On the way there, Steve distracted the driver while the rest looked closer at the body. It had a frostburn eldersign on his chest over his heart. And Carla was able to see that he was SUPER dead-dead.
Carita And Steve go to the newspaper which is mobbed by people demaning to know what’s going on.
Also, John and Carla started noticing the elder signs in various shapes and ways on the dead bodies at the morgue.

Later That Night
First Time in the Basement

2nd day: (later that night of the 22nd)

Madga, Lizzie, Win, and Jordan went down to the basement of the Silver lodge where barrels and kegs are stored. They

They were following the wet footsteps that went down, and dried out as they got further away (had more time to dry). John found secret passage. Tight squeeze, and then opened up into a big cathedral/states room type of old building with a podium. Behind the podium was a large pool of inky black water. Laura poked at it and strings of spaghetti were floating in it. Carita asked it questions.
Meanwhile, Steve was hanging out with the dead body and it started answering Carita’s question: linty of names and addresses.
There was another earthquake
Andrea heard old timey music coming from a hallway. Carla, Carita, and john saw three ghost guys in civilwar era clothing sitting by a fireside. One was standing, fiddling with an old phonograph, while the other two were arguing over a chessgame. John ran like crazy, and laura followed. Carla stole a book with a bunch of papers in it (she rolled a 6) and Carita tried to talk to them, but they ignored her. She failed a roll (cant remember) and then they noticed her, and chased her. Everyone ran back to the basement, through the crack in the wall, and Carita was last. The ghosts tried grabbing at carita, but she escaped, and she now has frostburn handprints on her back and shoulder where they tried to grab her.

Jan 22 1936: End of the World

Story so far:

Players are gathered at The Lodge when they feel the building shake, as if a subway train has passed nearby. While some patrons run outside to see what the heck caused the shaking, Magda Svenson ran to help anyone that looked like they might have been injured in the small quake.

While Magda helps calm the journalist Jordan Miles they can hear on the radio that blackouts have occurred to the south of Arkham, and that radio stations from Boston have gone off the air.

Those who ran to look outside see that there are blackouts to the south, although some buildings and streets have been spared, or are hooked up to back-up generators.

The players inside are accosted by a strange man who runs up to them, soaking wet and slimy to the touch. He is ranting about the end of the world, and how “it has begun.” When he sees Magda, he fixates on her, and grabs on to her with icy hands, and begins chanting in a strange language.

Madga realizes that she can almost understand what he is saying, and as she tries to reach through to him and calm him down, suddenly she is aware that he is reciting her addresses, where she has lived in Paris, in Prague, and now where she is staying in Arkham. She also understands that there are several other addresses, but she does not know what they refer to.

Winston (Win) Diego Jones and Elizabeth “Lizze” Davy Lowell pry the strange man from Madga, and as they do, he falls dead at their feet, icy cold to the touch, as if he had been dead for a much longer time.

Lizzie goes through the man’s pockets, while Mixon’s scientist watches suspiciously. Lizzie finds the man’s wallet, soaked and filled with a slimy mud, and an ID with the name Roger Ematt.

Other players realize that Roger didn’t come in from outside, but rather, came from somewhere downstairs, leaving a trail of wet footsteps behind…
