Jack Crandall – Brett

Randy Anders – Kurt

Erin Shaughnessy – John

GM – Neil

The sound of laughter and music is cut off as the door to the pub closes. Jack, Randy and Erin begin their short walk back the bed and breakfast through the fog rolling in off the bay. Over the gentle sound of the waves and the crunching of gravel under their feet, comes an ethereal moaning sound, low and sorrowful. Erin casts about looking for a weapon and finds a length of lead pipe while Randy turns on the camera.

The moaning gets louder, moving in from the bay.   Jack grabs up two fistfuls of sand and they move out trying to catch sight of their quarry. They spy a humanoid figure shambling up from the beach heading towards town. Jack suggests following it, so they cautiously begin to tail the eerie form.

The figure wanders the streets moaning and when the pub owner steps out locking his door for the night the creature begins moving in his direction. Randy yells, “Hey Asshole!” and the man is clearly confused as the form in front of him doesn’t seem to be that agitated. Then Jack yells at him to get back inside. Discretion being the better part of valor the pub owner quickly heads back inside and the creature turns to look at Jack, Erin and Randy.

They begin to argue, ever more loudly, about what they should do next when the creature begins moving in their direction. They start running towards the beach in fits and starts, trying to keep the creature’s attention. While they’re running Erin suggests running it over with the truck so they head towards the store. Jack splits off and starts up the truck while Randy and Erin continue kiting it along.

Jack slams into the creature and it explodes sending water everywhere. As the truck rolls to a stop, Randy and Erin investigate the scene.   There’s no clootie plastered to the front of the truck but Randy notices a concentration of water that looks like it’s actively moving towards the bay, T2 style. They try attacking it with road flares from the truck but it doesn’t really work and the disembodied water makes it’s way back to the sea.

They decide to sit in the truck for an hour or so to see if the clootie comes back and begin making plans.
