Centerville, Iowa

Showdown

Focused storm

Joe faced down the possessed Rachel Mueller alone, and destroyed the runestone she was digging for. A massive flooding storm started very quickly.

Penny, Fern, and Ethel arrived after the fact to evacuate the bees and livestock.

The bees evacuated themselves, along with Ethel’s pickup.

Upon leaving the Farm for higher ground, our heroes found the road blocked by angry Caldwell townsfolk.

After much posturing, a fight ensued. Bob arrived, kinda like the cavalry, but more like a trainwreck. Badly injured, he pushed himself beyond human endurance so he could snipe bad guys.

Heroes won the fight, but Bob was rendered unconscious, and locked into his new identity of “faceless assailant”. Rachel’s dad was impaled by the world’s fastest oak tree which grew out of nowhere.

Penny discovered Bob’s espionage gear and in now HIGHLY suspicious, even more so when she finds his hidden safe at his house.

And the equinox is fast approaching…..

With a little dipsomancy, Rachel’s dad was kept away from her.

Principal Harkness seemed to heal up awfully fast from a near fatal bullet wound.

Penny crashed her bike and suffered severe head trauma. rachel hid out at Ethel’s place.

Bob went to Ottumwa to be French while Joe drank himself silly.

Bad things happened to the weather, but not at Ethel’s farm.

Rachel made a break for it on sunday night, while Joe tried to track her, instead he met Kitty!

In which our Heroes track a lost Girl

Fern and Penny call up Joe and fill him in on the story with Chris’ dad, and also, incedentally, that the Caldwell Township Lutherans seem to be some kind of Tornado Cult.

Bob offers to shoot Chris’ Dad, and also proposes poisoning the Lutheran Pastor’s water supply. Neither idea is met with much enthusiasm by Fern.

Bob spies on the Lutheran Church, and notices Principal Harkness doing the same. They share information (a little).

Chris and Joe spy on Chris’ unfortunate home life.

Ethel uses Bees and her Savage avatar to track Rachel, who seems to have fled, barefoot.

Joe gets the day off work when Principal Harkness shows up with information regarding Rachel, the missing girl.

As folks are leaving for Unionville a faceless sniper takes a rifle shot and wounds the Principal badly, but he barely survives.

The party get to a diner in unionville and Penny talks Rachel into leaving with them, just as Bob, in overwatch mode, notices her dad driving up to get her…

A cliffhanger ensues.

The Story So Far

Fern, Penny, Bob, Joe, and Ethel shot down a flying saucer and traveled through time to two alternate futures. They finally arrived back in 1953 and decided that they’d better hang together if they want to weather this sort of weirdness when/if it happens again.

Currently, they’re on the trail of a missing girl from Centerville High, whose parents are behaving mighty oddly.
