    You are Paul, a man who is trapped inside his dreamscape by a powerful being seeking entertainment. He gave you one power: at random times and intervals, you have a danger sense. Thanks to an imprecise request, it manifests as your panicked right hand pulling a writing utensil out of your pocket and scribbling down details.

    Your goal is to survive, and escape. You first found yourself in a mostly-abandoned hospital, where you met a girl who had been bound and locked in a closet. You freed her, and the two of you fled the hospital while being pursued by numerous floating abominations. In the process, you got generally banged up, and you badly injured your left ankle.

    You next decided to scavenge for supplies within the town. After getting some much-needed food, water, weapons, first aid and other supplies--and almost losing your lives in the process--you deemed the town too dangerous to risk staying in longer. You got onto the highway, receiving a threatening message on the radio as you left.

    Now, you're driving a classic model Thunderbird down the highway away from the town, in an environment where everything is colored sepia, with the girl, Alicia, next to you in a scavenged police uniform.

    Your current supplies are as follows:

    Classic Ford Thunderbird with an almost full tank of gas
    Glock-20 10mm pistol (15 round magazine) [only basic proficiency in its use]
    Set of large kitchen knives wrapped in a towel
    Jug of water
    Large duffel bag containing:
    -One spare police duty uniform
    -1 bloodstained tactical (not bulletproof) vest
    -One half of a two-way radio set and its holster
    -1 pair of thick cut resistant gloves
    -4 LED traffic batons (lights, not weapons)

    If it looks like we're in the clear, I want us to pull over, take out the jug of water, and pour enough to make a fair sized puddle on a nonabsorbent surface (like a concrete road), and see if we can find that poor lady again.

    "I cAn stiLl SeE yoU, PAUL." That's what the voice on the radio said, as you hit the highway out of town. After that, static no matter which way you turned the dial.

    You've been up for a while now, and between the running, fighting, and the chicken in your stomach, you're starting to feel tired. The sepia tinted darkness doesn't do anything to keep you awake, and all the headlights show you is open countryside ahead.

    No sunglasses yet. You make a mental note to grab some at the first opportunity. Meanwhile, you keep an eye out for signs.

    You pull over and stop the car. Alicia looks at you quizzically as you take your only jug of water and dump some of the contents on the ground. You don't think she was in any position to see the people underneath the puddles at the diner and police station.

    You wait for the ripples to calm, and hold an LED baton over it for light.

    The water is a strange tint, but considering the translucent jug is being lit by a normally colored LED traffic light in a place where everything is sepia, that might just be normal. Nothing else seems amiss with it. You return to looking into the puddle.

    Alicia nods as you start explaining. "I figured you had some reason for it. You haven't acted crazy so far." By the end of your story, she's obviously a little creeped.

    Still nothing. You decide to retry your experiment later.

    You get back in the car and proceed down the road for several miles, keeping your eyes wide open despite exhaustion. You don't see another car on the road. Finally, after several miles of only grassy fields, you see a large sign--the first sign of civilization since getting on the highway.

    Still waiting for consensus on driving action.

    Alicia has already mentioned that she doesn't know what the floating abominations are. On the off chance that she knows about what was in the police station, you ask. She shakes her head. "I've never seen--well, heard--anything like that before. I don't think there's anything of the like where I'm from."

    You mention that you saw the tattoo on her back, and her eyes get big as saucers.

    Going to resolve this once people decide whether they want to keep driving or not.

    Alicia has already said that she's not from around here; she was brought here after being kidnapped, and didn't exactly have free reign to see the town or its outside.

    You do start to mention the tattoo you spotted. "Well, when I first found you, I saw you had a--" An incredibly massive shearing sound from behind interrupts you. Whipping your head around, you see a large crack form the road just behind the sign, stretching across the fields to either side of it.

    Other than maybe being a bit old to be running a bed and breakfast by themselves, no. Maybe they have someone else helping them out here.

    This will not work to monitor the door, as the room door opens outward. However, it will still likely be knocked over if someone enters, being low enough to not be necessarily spotted (especially in the dark).

    You set up the cabinet with the lamp on top right by the door, so that anyone entering ought to knock it over and cause a ruckus. You realize that it probably would have been better to mention this trap to Alicia beforehand... but hindsight is 20/20.

    As you lay down, sleep overtakes you faster than expected. You really were tired...

    You're hauled roughly out of sleep by several harsh slaps across the face in rapid succession. You brace against your attacker, only to find that it's your own right hand that's been assaulting you. You pin it to the bed with your left hand. And suddenly you realize that you went to sleep without wearing any pockets.

    The room is dark, and you're still groggy. But as you rouse yourself you can hear the faint creak of the door, followed by heavy footsteps and the crash of the lamp onto the floor.

    The overhead light suddenly flares on, momentarily blinding you--but as your eyes recover, you see the following scene in front of you.

    You reach into the duffel and pull out the Glock in your left hand. At this range hitting an unmoving target isn't too hard even with your left hand. You aim for the center of mass like you were told so long ago, and pull the trigger twice.

    Two of your precious rounds fly out and strike the creature's torso. You don't see any blood. It jerks backward slightly from the impacts and swings its head toward the source of the noise.

    Alicia is woken up by the loud bangs and falls out of bed.

    You fling the duffel bag over your right shoulder. No way are you leaving the supplies you nearly died for behind.

    "Alicia! Out the door! Move!" you shout, sighting on the creature's head and squeezing off a shot. The hoped for result of brains splashing against the walls falls far short, with the creature's head only jerking slightly away for a moment, before it comes toward you with a vengeance.

    You stand your ground as it approaches for a steady shot and fire another round as Alicia scurries out the door. You know you're hitting this thing! Time to follow the girl. You fling yourself forward, sliding underneath the thing and popping up to in the hallway. A set of 5 inch claws tears a hunk out of the door frame right behind you.

    You both rush toward the stairs and start flying down the stairs. You reach inside the duffel and pull out an LED baton with your right hand, which has gone completely controlled. As you pull out the light, you see the creature enter the hallway and give chase, with great bounding leaps.

    You shoot at the creature's legs. The round misses, burying itself into the wall. You had a nice easy target before, but that's changed. You try again, hitting this time. A lucky shot, it knocks the creature's knee slightly to the side, throwing it somewhat off balance as it lands a leap. You don't see any bullet holes where you shot the thing.

    You've got nine rounds left.

    You scramble downstairs. Your left foot is doing a fine job of complaining that it's not healed yet, but no time for that now. Alicia has stopped at the front door, looking back for you.

    You see the elderly couple sitting still in the easy chairs by the fireplace. They have long gashes across their bodies. The stink of burnt hair fills the room. The husband has a fireplace poker dangling limply from his hand.

    You can hear the creature reach the top of the staircase.

    Not that strong. It's basically a flashlight wrapped in translucent colored plastic. It's designed for guiding cars at night.

    The downstairs is lit faintly by the fireplace embers.

    Behind you, the creature leaps down the staircase in one swift bound. You put on a burst of speed for the door.

    You roll over onto your back and thrust with your poker toward the creature's eyes. Before you can connect, the creature bats it aside with so much p that maintaining your grip is impossible. The poker goes flying away, and then the creature's limb is shoved against the side of your face, crushing it against the ground. You're pinned flat. Your face burns with pain, and your entire body is starting to feel tingly--the kind you haven't felt since touching that bare wire as a child.

    It's getting harder to focus. You hear a roaring, growing louder and louder...

    It was a pretty simple, if nicely kept up, old fashioned house. Doing an inventory of everything will take quite a while (you really want me to type out everything that could be of use?). Far easier for you to seek out specific items.

    The old lady needed to make another food run soon, but she's got some basic staples in the kitchen. Flour, sugar, baking powder, etc. And a whole rack of spices, which Alicia is thrilled to see. "I could bake up something nice before we leave. Some real food."

    While she's checking over those, you found the cellar. Alright, home canned food. Three boxes full.

    A search for firearms finds a... huh. It's a break action rifle. You remember your grandfather having one of those for shooting pigs. Not something meant for combat really, but it's a gun. And 11 rounds, whoo!

    Almost as many votes for tossing it onto the fire as for beating it more. There are still some embers in the fireplace.

    With the next strike, you see the purple thing jerk forward quickly, the rest of the body also twitching rapidly, almost like coils inside of it. The next strike pierces the purple thing, spreading a greenish ooze over the poker tip.

    On a part that you haven't hit, the head of a pseudo-worm at least 3/4 an inch in diameter gnaws its way out through the carcass's skin and begins feeling around in the air.

    You cast the poker away as though it were a snake. Which is actually pretty close to the truth, in this case. You slam the car door trunk down as the worm launches itself of the poker toward your left arm. The trunk pins it by the end and locks the others inside, but its mouth makes contact with your skin before its velocity is negated. Immediately the teeth go to work as it attempts to bore a hole to wriggle its 3/4 inch self into your arm. With dozens of tiny little bites with at least four separate mandibles, it's like how you'd imagine being bitten by a piranha.

    You step back, ripping your arm away from the progressing mouths painfully, as Alicia comes bolting back with the knife she'd set down inside.

    You pin the head down with your boot and split the worm open lengthwise with the knife. It lets out a shrill, fading scream as it dies.

    You apply disinfectant on the wound, and a large bandaid wrapped in a spare small towel. Until you can think of a better way to know if poison is an issue, you tie off the arm for a little while. Not overly tight as you don't want to lose it, but the tourniquet does also help with reducing the blood flow at the wound.

    >> Anonymous 11/29/09(Sun)09:44 No.6921237

    Broken foot? When did that happen?
    >> º-º !!yxFrHrMXyX9 11/29/09(Sun)09:45 No.6921241
    also, maybe one of the elderly people had a cane somewhere. we could definitely use that
    >> º-º !!yxFrHrMXyX9 11/29/09(Sun)09:46 No.6921249
    foot/leg.. did you even read the other threads? it happened when we lept off the balcony onto the hospital's second floor and alicia foiled our attempts of a safe landing.

    Second looking for a cane

    While Alicia finishes cooking, you take some time to make as best a splint possible given the circumstances. You still really should have a doctor look at that.

    There's still bodies to bury, but food's ready and--whoa. When she said she was a mean cook, that was an understatement. You've had Thanksgiving meals that were worse off than this, with more to cook from.

    You find not one, but two. One's far too short, but the other can get the job done (adding about half an inch to the bottom would be nice though)

    First session.

    I did suggest like, 3 times now, we should bury or perhaps now that i think of it, cremate the corpses.

    prayer exp pls?
    >> Misha !WAHAHAQo.o 11/29/09(Sun)09:53 No.6921315
    Check how much gas is in the truck you found
    If not much use the garden hose to siphon gas from the Tbird into it
    >> Anonymous 11/29/09(Sun)09:54 No.6921322

    I agree. Bury what we can.
    >> º-º !!yxFrHrMXyX9 11/29/09(Sun)09:55 No.6921334
    second this. also grab anything from the house we could need, like perhaps extra clothes, assuming they aren't dated and gay as hell, shoes, elements of food, matches, aerosoles, lighters, BOOZE (moltov cocktails guys) every old couple has some brandy or scotch or some shit.

    anything else anyone can think of?
    >> Dreamscape !!SbnXxXER/Ds 11/29/09(Sun)09:57 No.6921353
    Other things took priority. Like food. But now you dig. You really don't have the right fire for a proper cremation.

    And dug, without incident. You feel good about doing that, even if it will never increase your fighting abilities. It's approaching late morning. Alicia suggests rotating naps with one person on watch to make up for the interrupted sleep. Then getting showered and gone by noon.

    There are a few empty glass bottles that you can siphon into to take on the truck. That big thing will probably not be as fuel efficient as the T-bird.

    Definitely cremate the corpses after our brief encounter with that death worm. That happened to be hiding in that puppy's corpse.

    Come to think of it, is it a parasite of sorts that lives inside a living being until the host (that puppy) dies, or instant excruciating death once it burrows into you... there might be more of them out there.

    If we're digging, that means we've got shovels. We're taking those with us. I'll miss the poker, but the shovel will make a good replacement.

    By the way guys
    We totally just got away with mouthing off to her without any repercussions.
    I feel like that was worth a bite on the arm

    Anything else before you depart? It's where I plan to end the session.

    Just wanted to say thank you for doing this
    Not many people would stay on /tg/ for nine hours to be a writefag in a thread
    >> Dreamscape !!SbnXxXER/Ds 11/29/09(Sun)10:12 No.6921514
    You're welcome. I have a lot of fun doing this, or I wouldn't continue. That other people are having fun and being entertained makes my day.

    Besides, the other sessions were longer, if I'm remembering right.
    >> º-º !!yxFrHrMXyX9 11/29/09(Sun)10:13 No.6921522
    Agreed. And believe me, you have some loyal followers, I should know after refreshing /tg/ every hour yesterday in the hopes I'd see the next installment, haha.

    Thanks again for another great session, I'll upload my my interpretation of paul and alicia next time, and I can't wait!!

    Oh wait.. lets check the trunk/glove compartement of this new car.

    Sorry. I was wiped yesterday.

    Thanks for joining it, and I'm looking forward to it.

    >>Oh wait.. lets check the trunk/glove compartment of this new car.
    Ack, you hit on part of my session closing post I'm working on. Anything else before you two jump in the truck and leave?

    sounds good, do this. also make sure to get gas from the other car.

    Find a tarp/cover for the pickup bed.
    >> Anonymous 11/29/09(Sun)10:22 No.6921600
    if we've got a pickup now, i'd recomend seeing if there's a tool chest of some kind from the shed and throwing that in the back.

    could come in handy
    >> Dreamscape !!SbnXxXER/Ds 11/29/09(Sun)10:31 No.6921688

    You whisk about gathering last minute items: a tarp (unfortunately, a little moth eaten), a basic toolkit (while not enough room for as much as you would like, you've got the essentials like a hammer, a few screwdrivers, pliers, allen wrench, some nails, and so on), and a can of extra gas from the T-bird. The last one takes a bit of willpower to go back to, but desperate times call for desperate measures. You're still trying to wash out the taste of gas from your mouth after siphoning it off. Nobody ever mentioned that it needed some skill.

    The sleep passes uneventfully, making up for the interrupted night. The only difference is the clouds rolling in. Final preparations are made, and you head out to the truck.
    >> Dreamscape !!SbnXxXER/Ds 11/29/09(Sun)10:40 No.6921777
    Everything in the truck is ready to go. You take the wheel, and realize that again you forgot to check an area of a vehicle before using it. You're reaching toward the truck's glove box when you notice your hand. Something bad this way comes.

    Scanning around the truck, you don't see anything. Until you look up, and notice something starkly obvious against the sepia sky. Those ranks of clouds tearing across the heavens... they aren't sepia. And they don't look like harbingers of hope.

    End session 3
    >> Dreamscape !!SbnXxXER/Ds 11/29/09(Sun)10:42 No.6921804
    Next session is planned for this Friday or Saturday evening, with probable beginning time 11-2 am central, schedule permitting.
