Achtung! Cthulhu Three Kings Session Notes:  March 17, 2013

5 July 1939

At the Warehouse

The team debated killing some Germans to steal their uniforms.

Killer found a window vent overlooking what turned out to be Gestapo Headquarters (11).

Chance decided to wait until dark and then sneak into the ghoul tunnels via truck to the monastery.

At the Monastery

How would they get the Father to the Warehouse past the German patrols?

Gus proposed disguising as monks to get out, but Father Andrej would be hard to control.

He then proposed borrowing a cart and stuffing Father Andrej into a crate.

He then proposed keeping Father Andrej at the monastery.  Chance said he did not expect the monks to be able to guard him.

Then he proposed seeing the abbot to borrow a vehicle.   Continue reading “Achtung! Cthulhu Three Kings Session Notes:  March 10, 2013”

5 July 1939

The team was directed to the father.  The monks would not go near him.  They found him in a cell at the end of a darkened hallway in the catacombs below the monastery.

The Father had an unnerving air of calm and confidence.  He proposed that the resistance cause a diversion to draw the Germans out of the castle, while he led the team through the ghoul tunnels to the castle.  However, had added that the team must protect him from the ghouls because they did not like him anymore.  He claimed it was because he used their tunnels without their permission to enter the castle the second time.

Killer reconnoitred the various boxes and crates in the outer warehouse.  Chance peeked through a crack in the door and saw a pretty woman there.  He announced himself and startled her.  After Evelyn stated that they had been sent from Krupna, the woman disappeared for a few minutes and then returned and invited them in.

Once in the warehouse, Chance and Evelyn were surrounded by men who took their long arms.  The woman questioned them as to their motives and why they had created so much trouble.  Chance responded that they had had no choice.  Killer, Gus and Tomas were invited in and surrendered their weapons without a fuss.  Chance showed her the letter from Frantisek Moravec.

The ghouls returned several hours later (0200).

  • They said that the Germans had ended the search, but that there are handful still in the village.
  • They said that after the team dealt with Father Andrej, they would help them.
  • Chance asked what “dealt with” meant.  The ghoul said that it was up to the team to do what was necessary.

The Czechs took the team back to the church and used the radio back to set up a meeting with the resistance leadership at a warehouse in Karlstein at 0500.  That meant that they had about three hours to cross the river back into the town.

The team debated how and where to cross.  Tomas, one of the resistance men, ultimately arranged for the team to meet a barge up river that would take them to the docks in Karlstein disguised as the crew.

From the windows of the church upstairs, the team could see a German patrol and a truck at the south end of town, and another patrol with a halftrack by the tavern at the north end of town.

The team followed the tunnel from the shed.  The main tunnel was made of stone, with electric lights spaced periodically, but there were numerous hand dug tunnels branching off along the way.

They heard skittering sounds in the darkness.

Killer spotted a humanoid form in the distance.  At first the others could not see it, but then Evelyn saw it and was paralyzed with fear.  She began repeating what the others said.

The creature was not aggressive, and on closer examination was seen to be bipedal, with canine features and large ears.  It ran away before they could approach.

The team arrived in Krupna (0300)

Chance noticed that there was very little activity in the village, and the people on the street rushed inside as they approached.

Chance and Killer noticed German vehicles hiding behind some of the buildings.
