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.
