Wild and Wicked

Session 0: Gamechanger
Prologue session

Games,
Games played on a larger scale,
A peculiar group and an odd tale,
A story of the motley crew that came together,
A beginning for the storms they’d weather.

Session 1: Hotel Bearings

The PCs huddle together in Old Man Hunch’s house recovering from their escape. He tells them about who they are, how they have escaped Arcadia, and that they are now in Morgantown 2013. He explains some of the basics of being a changeling – mask & mien, contracts, fetches, and the Freehold of the Mountain Spirit. The characters take it all in, asking questions.

Session 2: Backroads and Log Cabins

Back from the Winter King’s Court with The Professor making a note to look into getting a permit for Fetch Hunting the group opts to figure out what the map drawn might be since it might be the location of the two missing Changelings. Some of the group decide to take a bus to check it out. Damien suggests they ask Rex if they could borrow a car. When the group looks at him oddly he reminds them it’s the guy Hunch mentioned to talk to if they were looking for work. The group decide to take the bus down to Keegler’s to see Rex.

Pauly notices the group and asks where they’re headed. Untrusting of the man the group let it be known they were going to go looking around town for a bit by bus. Wild Orchid explains she’d like to do some shopping while they are out as well. The Professor notices that Paul’s car is a little pricey for someone running a Comfort Inn even if business is good.

A Keegler’s the group easily picks out Rex when he steps out of the back since he stooped so low. Damien opens his mouth when Rex asks what they want and the group quickly realize he does not possess competent talking skills to get across anything besides the party was new to the area and he wanted a car. The group explain over beers that are offered. While the group tries to figure out if they should trust Rex Damien is already at the bar trying his first beer. Which he spits out and declares it’s gone ‘bad’. The professor confused on the statement is the first to realize most 8 year old boy’s don’t know how to appreciate a good beer. Rex opts to give Damien Apple Cider which he asks for in a beer mug. With small talk of explaining about the two lost changelings the party actually gets Rex to let them burrow his H3 fully loaded Humvee. Damien also adds in they’ll bring in back and not keep it.

Outside after a drink Damien calls shotgun until the Professor asks if who knew how to drive. Damien is the first to exclaim he knew how. The group looks at him and asks why an eight year old boy would know how to drive, he implies he might have found himself in a car or fifteen when he was younger… sometimes he liked to do bad things. Lee opts to explain Damien didn’t have a license and that it wouldn’t be nice to give Rex back his vehicle damaged (it’s assumed Damien was a bad driver). While Lee spends about two minutes moving the chair forward so her legs could reach the pedals and The Professor sits in the front passenger seat Damien lets the group know ‘this sucked and everyone smelt like butt cheese’.

On the trip down the PC’s meet Damien’s Fetch. When Bad meets Good

Afterwards the group spends the rest of the day looking for something that might be the area they want to find. Just after dark they find a chained off area of the road plus a wooden sign with the name “Gnarl” written in chalk and crossed out about a dozen times.
Damnien grunts loudly and after some doing gets enough slack for the group to drive over the chain. Damien thinks Gnarl is the name of the dog that took the group’s friends.

The group pulls up in front of a small cabin and see a beat up vehicle and a panel van. Wild Orchid comments that the van looks familiar when a shotgun is audibly cocked before someone yells for everyone to get off the property. That’s when things went down at Gnarl’s Log Cabin

Session 3: Early Morning Calls Midday Mayhem

A call from Lee puts the crew on a wild goose chase of sorts to find her friend. By the end of the day the party is relaxing at the bash thrown by the Sprint Court’s Queen as it is announced with the coming of Spring a new court is in session. Damien finds himself helping the court’s sheriff to clean up the remains of a changling he decappitated not really sure why he had to kill the guy in the first place. But he got to keep all the weapons and he wasn’t in trouble so he’s fine with it.

Session 6: Erie in Pennsylvannia

Damien lets the Spring Court Sheriff know about the dealings with the Moon and Sun game possibly still going on and the Sheriff thinks it is serious since it might affect more than just Damien’s Motley Crew… Damien was surprised Motley Crew was still together and asked if they were still touring. The Sheriff debates if he really should have taken him on as a Deputy. They find a rapid dog they put down and Damien was a bit disappointed it wasn’t a two headed dog like the report had explained.

The group went to check out Lee’s friend who was going to be in Erie, Pennsylvania. Tom opted out since he was too busy with his own work and research for the tokens he needed to fix. The crew piled into Lee’s SUV since it was ‘cleaner’ and drove up to find a yellow truckstop. Damien pointed out as soon as he found out he wasn’t driving that he called ‘shotgun’. The crew found out the truckstop wasn’t actually yellow at least not the one they wanted to find. Damien said some rather unPC things and the group found out Yellow Trucking company trucks are actually more of a an orange in color. Going to a hotel across from the truck stop didn’t turn out fruitful besides Damien getting some tips from local cops about how to canvas an area when looking for a person. He took notes.

The group split up much to Damien’s disappointment when he just bought a CB to put in Lee’s SUV. The Professor and him patrol a bit more before going back to the room at the hotel for the night. Lee and Little Orchid end up driving around and hitting someone’s dog that eventually leads to Little Orchid getting another Changling Killed, Lee getting her car shot at for stealing a State Championchip ring, and Lee finding her friend Nick. Realization Nick was on the other side of the game and it still is going on comes to light for everyone since Dee the man who ended up being killed instead of Little Orchid was one of Nick’s friends and Lazuris the changling Damien decapitated was also one of his crew. The gangs both realize if something isn’t done they’ll end up killing each other off. In the meantime Damien comments on the large furry blue ogre looking like Beast off of those Xmen movies and he thinks that’s pretty cool.

3XP Awarded.
