Orpheus: Don't Look Back


...tting early reports of some kind of mass poisoning at various sites across the city. Various victims have been collapsing and suffering severe spasms and paralysis. Several deaths have been reported. We'll update this story as....<static>...

...EMTs have been warned that the poisoning is likely strychnine, according to Detective William Frankowicz, EMTs throughout the city have been advised of this poisoning event, but it might be too late to stop.

"Jan, Jan, I have a voice on the street here!"

"Go ahead, Bill."

"Sir, you've just said that you left the Haunted Palace night club in a panic. What's going on in there?"

"Jesus. It's terrible. There's got to be fifty, sixty people just fucking vomiting onto the ground in there. Everybody is thrashing about. Christ! I think a lot of people are dying!"

<sound of dogs barking, sirens>

"How did this all start?"

"At like 10 people just started falling over and there was a lot of screaming all at once. It looked like everyone is in pain."

"Emergency staff have just arrived, Jan. They are rushing into the club. Oh my god, a young woman has just pulled a body onto the street."

<barking intensifies> 

"Jan, I can't believe my eyes, but there's got to be at least thirty dogs and they're...fuck!...they're attacking the emergency teams. Shit!"

<sound of running feet, snarling>

"I've never seen anything like this! Oh, god, the screams from downstairs. This is....this...I can't"


"Bill? Bill?"

    Ashley, you may like this. Anathema allows you or somebody else to run on walls, stand upside down on ceilings, balance on tree twigs (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon shit), and even fly. It's not just a combat thing.

    Is this campaign open to new players? If so, I'd be interested in joining. I just joined meetup.com/ this group and am still getting oriented... who should I get in touch with?

      This group is full at the moment, and so are the other two or so games running, sadly. Right now, if you want to get involved in playing, your best bet would be running a game of your choice. If you'd like to do that, let me know, and I can help you out. We have a shortage of available games for players to join.
