Oh this is cool.
D, because bandwagon.
The only way to work with Crazy in the short-term is to try and misdirect it. D!
Option D. Obviously the only thing that would temporarily pacify him.
Gonna go with A on this one.
A. We should get more info about what's going on and the boy could be a good source if he's willing to talk.
Well in that case he's going to be trouble later on anyways. Might as well find out now and plan accordingly. Also maybe he'll like us and won't use his evil powers on us later on.
A. Things always go bad when you look away from them in this sort of story. Better keep an eye on everythign while you investigate.
A. Ignore it. Take Sonny back to the sitting room to wait for Arnold.
B. Ask Sonny about the sack on the floor.
C. Go see what is inside the sack.
D. Call for Arnold to come take a look.
B, definitely. Best to ask Damien Thorn here what's in the sack, if we go and check ourselves he may get pissed.
The rebel in me says C. We've gone too long without taking Sanity Damage!
I'm gonna go with D on this one. Sonny is clearly fucked up and bringing up the sack or messing with it ourselves might cause him to freak out. Ignoring it isn't really an option either and I'd rather have Arnold around if the kid does flip out so he can hypnotize him and put him to sleep or something.
A. Yell “Look Out!” to warn Arnold of the dog in the road.
B. There’s no time, grab the steering wheel, and maneuver around the dog.
C. There’s no time, close your eyes and ready yourself for the gruesome impact.
SAVE THE TURTLES!!!
i mean.... dogs
A. This way, it's not my fault!
A. A job's a job- Besides,the more secrets we know, the more dirt insight we'll have on the local area. That's real imperative for a person in our line of work.
A. No reason
I feel like C might be a trigger for the Mother to spill some juicy info.
I want to see what Mother Carrol says.
A family over everything else, It would be wise to gather info but there if there is a trend occuring that has to do with abandonments happining at the same hospital your sister is given birth. Thats a little more than just a coincidence. You need to check this out immediatly and warn your sister so nothing bad happens to her.
Laura ain't giving birth to the Anti-Christ on my watch!
A! Nothing else is really that urgent.
B no time to waste!!
Ok, I see why you couldn’t take this to the police,” you groaned flatly. “I’m going to need a little more than this (amazing coincidence aside).”
Obviously, I can’t go to the police with nothing but “a bad feeling about it”, so we need someone to investigate a little further first.”
C. I like favors!
A, because it's the most badass
D. As much SECRECY as possible. Can't put our cards on the table!
B, no need to rush our sister can wait.
B enough crap about the hospital lets get to the juicy part.
You began to realize how little you knew about the situation. You knew nothing about the hospital; nothing about the hospital staff; or any of the information on the various cases (or people involved) that the orphanage records showed. Hell, you were a private eye – used to digging up information and dirt from a variety of sources – yet here you had been ready to storm off ill-prepared and do… what?
"If someone is using it to affect the children, then what could be waiting for us at the hospital may be more horrifying than your wildest nightmares. You must prepare you minds now for that possibility, or risk them breaking, when the soft veneer of our perceived reality is dashed to pieces before our very eyes."
B. doesn't seem very wise, but WHO HAS TIME FOR WISDOM!? I'm not entirely sure there is a way to prepare for something like this without getting more "hands-on". It'll be easier to look up info on what we see at the hospital than to look up what we've heard on the hospital. I've played enough low-intelligence party leaders to know how to edge my rolls for library use!
I'm gonna go with B cause even if we don't know what's up I don't wanna have to kill my niece/nephew later in the story cause they were born at the Cthulhu hospital.
I'm not good at sneaking around, but my guess is to get out of the noisy car or get is as far away from them as soon as possible and then go to the hospital. So ill going C.
I'm assuming the deadline is midnight as it often is with spooky things so I'll go for B in case the logging trail takes too long.
C; let's find out what's going on with this shaft before we make any stupid decisions.
I'll say B. We don't have to climb our way up from the basement but also don't risk running around under bright lights
B, lets try something before we commit to sneaking past the police.
B lets safest quietest option. Cops sleeping is suspect. Using crowbar is suspect. No other way in.
I don't imagine there's anything in the kitchen immediately useful to us. All good secrets are in basements.
I vote C.
Also, hi! I've read everything up till now, and I'm excited to join you all!
C. There's something weird going on. And everything strange happens in the basement.
I'll throw my bid in with A as well though I think at this pace demon baby is inevitable
C? I want to help the sister who I think might be higher up? It seems like the group mentality is to get to the mystery in the basement first. Which is respectable. I'm also wanting to do that. But I feel like the sister is higher up.
A, First we got to figure out what's going on and then we march in. We can't try to save my/our/lucky's sister without any information.
I wanted to go into the basement before, and finding a rolling pin doesn't change things for me. Plus, I feel like if there's company, we would be expected to head into the cafeteria, and avoid a creepy basement. I sort of want to be where I'm not expected here.
B. We're here to explore, not to turn back, so A is out. And picking a lock will be quieter.
A, Picking the padlock worked the first time. The Cops probably won't hear us down in the basement, but it's better to be safe than sorry. Also, correct me if I'm wrong if the pick doesn't work we can revert to having Cole breakthrough using his crowbar.
I don't think you meant to pick "A," then.
Oh crap I entirely messed up my bad your right Gower I meant to pick B, and what I was saying is that if we can pick B and the lock pick doesn't work will C still be an option.
C. Whats a little noise among friends that lurk in the hidden parts of basements?
C, Let's see what these anti-environmentalist fish-killing pieces of crap are up to, but in all seriousness whatever is happening to the fish could correlate to what they are doing to the babies.
A. I want to see what has to be locked up here, considering this location is already behind the first lock that we bypassed.
A, for Gower's reasoning
C, let's get more knowledge and explore first then go into the mysterious passageway.
A. I'm not convinced that we have the technical knowhow to figure out a lot more specifics here, and I want Cole to keep watching our backs.
C, let's sniff that elixir!
D, Lets check out the morgue. Who knows what strange things could be behind that door, and maybe looking at dead bodies can give us a clue about whats going on.
To tell you the truth, I'm a bit nervous about messing with these fish or (obviously) smelling a strange elixir. But a quick glance at a skeleton seems pretty low-stakes, and maybe we'll learn something.
Ooh, I like this choice.
I'm inclined to pick C. We've come here for information, and I don't want to retreat back. At the same time, I don't want to stand here in the open chit-chatting.
In a normal situation, not involving things out of our control option, C would be smartest because sometimes hiding in the shadows and waiting is the best option. But then again, whatever this seal that Arnold is talking about, it's out of our range of knowledge. So its best to let the expert do their job. Arnold is the black magic expert, so were going to have to let go of the driver's seat and trust Arnold's instincts. Whatever black magic stuff he has sensed, it's his specialty, not ours, and listening to the specialist is usually a good idea. Also, since when does breaking a magical seal sound useful to anybody.
A is stupid because, its just wasting time
So I'm going to choose B because Arnold is the expert and whatever is going on its probably best to listen to him.
I'm gonna pick C. I don't trust Arnold's sanity, and I don't trust standing out in the open, either.
B, I'd move away from cultists
I like A as well.
A. We may not have much time in here, and I want to see the book more than anything else.
I think this place is obviously a deathtrap, but since where inside the tomb, there is no point in leaving. U'm, this is a tough one. Options A-C all make sense, and honestly, my instinct is to go with C, but I will wait and edit this comment when it's about eight o clock eastern. So I can see what everyone else thinks.
Okay tie-breaker I gotta go with A, B is quick and efficient and I was leaning towards this one more, but answer choice A is probably the notes of whoever created this deathtrap so that seems pretty important and more logical.
B. Last time I checked projectors don't coo. I hesitate to do this one because I don't want her to experience a mental break, but I also want her to not be one of those people who's all "I don't believe in magic" as they cast magic
C, there is no point shooting at it (doesn't work in the movies) So might as well free and not piss it of. Also plus mizal's reasoning
C. Arnold doesn't look like he's gonna help and we might as well have a list of the demon babies
I know I am outnumbered here, but I would vote B. At this point, just run.
I would have thought "Tally Ho" is sufficient proof that people on this website like to crash through stories without regard for consequences:p
Wow, mizal was right, as usual, who woulda thunk it.
Let's go back. I really want to see how this play's out.
I'd love to see other options! Which critical point do you think you'd redirect us to?
