Lovecraft’s mythos always produces interesting stories, so I decided to make my next Untold game part of this world.
Location: Euclidipus hospital.
Threat: a “Blob” pursuing someone.
Johnathan Grey, patient of the daily ward of psychiatric wing of the
hospital due to his believe in magic. Johnathan has knowledge of the
mythos and a spell book from some other reality.
Blob” pursues a baby recently born in the hospital. It is a girl named
Maria Rack, from mother Eleonore, father unknown. Baby exists both in
this reality and in some other dimension, and Blob wants to use it to
open a portal between worlds. The only thing stopping Blob from
accessing a baby is Johnathan’s spell book.
So, in order to save the
baby, Johnathan puts the book in the mother’s luggage. Then, our hero
tries to sneak into the hospital archive in order to find baby’s home
address, but he is in for surprise. Hospital archive is a room that
seems to go for kilometers – it might even be endless. Using his mythos
knowledge, Johnathan tries to find the data he needs, only to discover
that several woman named Eleonore Rack give birth to daughter named
Maria at the same time. All these women live at the different parts of
the city, even in different towns and countries. Being unable to get any
conclusion from his findings, Johnathan returned to his room.
is now sure that Euclidipus hospital is just a secret base of the Blob
and his cultists. Blob uses his cultists masked as emergency medical
crews to operate in the city. Once the book left the hospital in
Eleonore’s suitcase, Blob will infect hospital patients with its essence
and in that way travel to try to reach the baby.
the hospital, doctors are looking for Johnathan. He uses the oldest
trick in the book and escapes through laundry elevator. Out of the
hospital Johnathan enters the phone booth and uses address book found
there to look for the Rack family. There seems to be one Eleonore Rack
living nearby so he goes there. He is careful to avoid any sign of
medical emergency crews, but there are none of them. Actually, the whole
neighborhood seems deserted.
Johnathan sneaks into the house where
baby should be, only to find out that interior of the house is really an
exterior located on some strange world…
this evil person all along – the baby is pulling strings! She is really
this world reincarnation of old goddess Mariarack. She opened the portal
but she is unable to bring anything from portal into our world without
the Blob essence.
In front of the portal, mother
holds a baby. Baby looks very week, somehow sick. Eleonore accuses
Johnathan that he is trying to kill her baby girl by planting a book
into her luggage.
Johnathan tries to persuade Eleonore to give him
back a book, but she gets mad and turns into monster. She than tears the
book in such a way that pages fly all over. Johnathan grabs pages
flying by him and starts to read spells. One attacking spell hits
monster and it grins with pain. Then, Johnathan casts protective force
field around him, making monster mad since it can’t hurt a mortal
standing before it. Using the feelings of the monster, Johnathan draws
it as far away from the baby as possible, then runs, grabs a baby and
throws it through portal.
The portal starts closing, and all returns
to normal. Johnathan stands inside the house now, and what was a monster
is again a woman. With a satisfied smile, Eleonore steps through the
portal that completely closes behind her.
Johnathan is left standing amongst the torn pages of his book, wandering if he just saved the world or doomed it.
