The Contingent

The Hunt for the Red Herring
Table 1 - John Knight

In central New England several cases of fatal animal attacks have been reported, but the authorities have yet to connect them. After the recent reports of an organized supernatural presence in the area, Chester has been asking hunters to follow up on any leads, no matter how tenuous. Will this just be another wild goose chase? Or has something finally bitten off more than it can chew? This game involves investigation, research, and some action.

Session Writeup – Ed

March finds Ed traveling to Provo, UT at Chester’s request. A 20-something kid named Jarrod Tyler vanished two weeks ago, only to have a man in his 70 turn up in the last few days claiming to be Tyler. Digging around led the group to Happy Valley Retirement Community and one of their recently deceased residents, Philip Cohen. Cohen’s past is a fake, and his death is within days of Tyler’s vanishing. He also left a substantial amount of money to Happy Valley at his death.

The group attempt a subtle bit of snooping at Happy Valley, but resort to strong-arm tactics when discovered. Dr Hardwick, the owner, is obviously corrupt and quite dangerous. But the self-identified Magus is not so dangerous to avoid capture. The group take the unconscious doctor, as well as 6 items know as the Relics of the Iron Tallow, to Chester. However, Cohen – also known as Ironwick – is long gone and there’s no way to reverse what happened to Tyler without stealing someone else’s youth.

Wolves of DC
Table 2 - Eric Townsend

Washington DC is the center of seedy deals and sordid politics — but that’s all in a day’s work for our elected officials. It appears though that wolves are roaming wild in the city and seem to have a taste for politicians. Several have been attacked, but fortunately, no one has been killed. Members of the Contingent are sent to investigate and put a stop to these attacks, if they prove to be more than ordinary.

Wolf in Sheep's Clothing
Table 2 -John Knight

In Meredith, New Hampshire the month of April has seen a rise in the number of people reported missing. Also, several of missing persons that have been solved in the last few months have been found to be winter suicides. While this trend is normal, the sheer volume of cases is enough above normal statistic variance to have caused Chester to reach out and ask some hunters to look into it.

Is something hunting the locals and disguising their work? Or is it a normal spring in NH? This game involves investigation, research, and some action with a side of moral ambiguity.

Session Writeup – Ed

Meredith, New Hampshire is still stuck in Winter when Ed arrives, following another of Chester’s leads. Several townsfolk committed uncharacteristic acts of passion, from suicide to bestiality. In addition, distance and direction distort in the area. And it all seems to be linked to the arrival of a beautiful stranger that lives out on Bear Island. The group travel out to the island, only to find bear traps and a crazed man intent on killing them. Attempts to tranq him fail and Ed resorts to lethal force. Beneath the abandoned vacation home on the island, the group find the beauty and hear her strange tale of being created, not born. Her story matches the Greek myth of Galatea, but this means little to the group.

Plans are made to contact Chester for more instruction, but Ed must leave to seek medical attention for the leg wounds from one of the bear traps. The creature remains in isolation on Bear Island in the meantime.

Session Writeup – Ed

Chester summoned Ed to Red Wing, mentioning teens going missing over several summers. Chester suspects they could be related. Ed helped uncover a plot to test arcane-infused water on the youth of the city via a strange tank at the public pool. The group discovered the water’s source, as well as holding cells for the teenagers, in a secret room underneath Red Wing, but no leads on where the teens might be now

The City That Bleeds
Table 1 - Richard Moore

Baltimore’s got it all: history, literature, seafood, music… and vampires. Usually they’re at least containable; there’s enough Contingent members in Charm City to keep their numbers quelled, and they know better than to kill indiscreetly on our streets. But deaths by exsanguination have been on the rise in tourist areas for the past few weeks, and our connections in the city government are getting restless. Figuring out what’s provoking the attacks would be good; killing all the bloodsuckers you can find would be even better. This game will focus on action, NPC interaction, and a touch of investigation.
