Pinebox Adventures

Last Rites

Our heroes were leaving town when they encountered Susan Gray, a local attorney with a haunted house problem. After some pleading and initial research, our heroes decided to help her out. They went to her house, interviewed her and her children and then began the long night. They had many poltergeist encounters and debated going to the next door neighbor’s house in morning based on some of their findings.

Pond Demon Finale

While Frank and Angela did research on the Pond Demon, Jon got a visit from the demon at the Pinebox hotel. After a pitched battle in the parking lot, Jon managed to immolate it in flames with some gas he retrieved from a truck bed nearby. The demon eventually gave up on Jon and jumped into its pond stone that Jon had retrieved.

That evening Jon and Frank took their exorcist contact to the pond where the demon originated and began an exorcism. Mrs. Keaton showed up with her daughters in tow and it became obvious she was possessed. Frank managed to ‘kill’ the demon’s possessed body with some well place gun shots and flames.

When the pond devil emerged from the pond in true form and began choking the exorcist, Jon and Frank forced her into the pond with a few flare blasts and allowed the exorcist to finish his job, sending the demon back to Hell for good.

Burketsville, IN Part One

Jon’s Illuminati contact ask Jon and Frank to look into some strange disappearances of you couples the second week of April each of the last 3 years. After taking the red eye, the duo decided that Burketsville, IN was the best starting point considering its off ramp only from the nearby interstate.

After poking around the tiny town, Frank managed to get in a stand off with a local officer from the sheriff’s department while Jon rescued a young couple stranded in the night outside of town next the one of the local orchards.

A short time later, Frank shot and killed the local cafe’ owner, Scotty, when threatened with a shotgun.

Frank covered the body with a tarp in the back of Scotty’s own truck. He and Jon are now considering their next course of action.

Brother Renfeld – Stu’s Character
James Crocker – Father
Tim Crocker – Missing Son
– Unit name ‘Merlin’
– Student at USC
– Lives in apt off campus (rm. 203)
– Hasn’t contacted dad in 2 weeks – usually calls every Sunday
– Dad gave us registration information for Tim’s 1996 Subaru Outback
– Tim had a ‘girl friend’ who he played ‘board games’ with – Sherrie Newsome
– Sherrie lived across hall (rm. 204)
– Heavy set goth girl

Dylan talked a key out of her by telling her Tim thought of her as his girlfriend
Renfeld got a key from the manager just by being his charming self.

Apartment was dusty and obviously not lived in for some time.
In living room was a lot of research into the paranormal with the most recent research having to do with sea monsters and ‘water phenomena’
Dylan noticed in other rooms of the apartment signs that perhaps Tim had packed for a trip somewhere.

Fluid stains in Tim’s parking space told Dylan it had been at least a week or week and a half since a vehicle was parked there

After finding a mail box key they were able to access his mail box which was stuffed with mail to the point of overflowing – junk mail, cell phone bill, bank statement, paranormal times, credit card bill.

Cell phone predates Tim’s disappearance by two weeks. No calls to North Carolina. Nothing really stood out on the bill.

There were no charges on the credit card statement.

recent charges were discovered after calling in to his credit card company. A charge was made a week and a half ago on the 26th (Sunday), Super 6 Motel in Walton North Carolina which is fairly close to ‘Buckskin Lake’.

Calling in about the cell phone reveals it has not been used past the last statement.

Deel’s Marina – July 27th (Monday).

Bank statement had him withdrawing $300 locally on the 25th (Saturday)

In one of Tim’s blogs he says he’s onto something big. Another bloggers asks if it’s related to Coalville? There’s no response. This blog comment was about a week bevore he left.

Turns out it was a misspelling of ‘Coleville’. When Buckskin Lake was created, Coleville was flooded and now only exists as ruins under the lake.

Louie is the ‘monster’ in Buckskin lake.

Leonard Small – Owner of ‘local marina’.

Session cont’d at “Fresh Blood: Part One”

Fresh Blood: Part One

On the way to Buckskin Lake, the two of them hear on the radio that the town they are passing through has had three murders in the last three days all seemingly by an ‘animal attack’ where the victum’s throat was attacked and they bled out.

All the murders happened near a bar named ’Spider’s’

All three murders were of thirty-something single guys.

The two find a likely candidate for a victim and follow him. He gets attacked by a blonde woman who claims that she hasn’t been able to control her hunger for days and claims she ’can’t come down’ from a high she’s had for days. She thinks someone slipped something into her drink.

After foiling her attack and taking her back to her apartment they learn that there was ‘a guy’ who gave her what she said was a ‘great drug’ and took her back to his loft. She tried to show the two where the loft was but couldn’t remember the actual place.

She managed to remember a ‘d’ name which the two guessed might be a ‘Dixon Niles’ based on names on mailboxes downstairs.

On making thier way up to Dixon’s loft, there were two girls in the apt. who invited them in and were acting very seductive. There was no ‘Dixon’ to be found.

Renfeld found some drugs in the bathroom designed to thin blood.

After a bit of chit-chit, the two girls show their true colors and attack Dylan and Renfeld. The two escape, but not before Dylan got slashed across the chest (one wound).

Once away, Renfeld heals Dylan’s wound with a prayer and leaves Dylan speechless at the miracle.

Renfeld calls in backup from the Illuminati who connects him with a local hunter team who arms them and educates them in how to kill vampires.

The four of them launch an attack on the Vampire nest during the day time during which the ancient vampire and all his thralls were destroyed without any wounds suffered on the side of the ‘heroes’.

Unstill Waters & Fresh Blood: Part Two

SESSION 2:
The group went back to the female’s apt where she turned on them shortly after the Pastor tried to explain to her her unfortunate condition.

After a brief fight, Dylan managed to kill her via machete decapitation.

The three proceeded to their destination with Dylan and the Pastor jamming out to Kansas and Lynyrd Skinner

Upon arriving at Buckskin River Valley, the river is flooded and swollen – the town of ’Walton has a population of 1,330.

The remains of flooded buildings are visible in the murky river water

The trio stops at the local diner – ‘Rainbow Diner’ – they are served by ‘Mable’ and it quickly becomes obvious that the locals don’t’ care for visitors in their town. Mable also says the locals don’t like ‘Louie’ stories because .. well – they aren’t true.

The group then moves on to ‘Lucky Louie’s’ – the local bar. Pastor learns that there was a town named ‘coleville’ that was covered by buckskin lake from the barkeep – but it was before his time. Barkeep says ‘some college boy’ came into the barn and was asking about a ‘monster in the lake’.

Barkeep also mentioned that a mine opened into the lake at one point and the lake flooded the mine.

The three went to the hotel and found out that Tim didn’t check out but he took all his stuff and a pillow and a blanket and never was heard from again. One of the rooms the three get is Tim’s old room. It had been cleaned since he was there. There was a reference to Job 3:8 scribbled on a notepad: “May those who curse days[a] curse that day, those who are ready to rouse Leviathan.”

Next day after getting breakfast at the Rainbow Diner, they head out to the Deel Marina which turns out to also be a bait shop and camp ground.

Callahan noticed a glint of light across the lake and then the three went to investigate, they found an old hunting lodge in disrepair.

On second floor they find a hidden cache under a floorboard as well as the missing blanket and pillow from the hotel – the cache contained various personal effects as well as a digital video camera.

Video is a static shot of the surface of the lake for about an hour shot from the second floor window – nearly an hour into it – the camera zooms into a spot on the northwest shore – when the night-vision kicks in, a large ripple can be seen rolling across the lake’s surface and tim whispers, “hope I got that – I’ll have to check the tape”.

Shortly after that some people come into the lodge – the preacher goes down to investigate and finds three teen boys smoking weed. They mentioned they thought stu was the crazy old moonshine guy that lives around here. Further investigation made his name to be ‘shortrigde’ or ‘kerm’ or ‘cicero’.

After running the teen potheads off, the three decide to head back to town after collecting up Tim’s secret stash of gear and goods.
