[_monsters_]
This is the second post for Hellboy, Kate, Warren, and Leon. If you are on one of the other teams, please do not read this post until the game is over! The information contained herein could give some things away!


Old Silent Hill notes
Wandering monsters are again described at the end of this post. This post needs to be completed on or before July 19th.

You begin outside of Alchemilla Hospital in the east side of Old Silent Hill. East and West Old Silent Hill are connected by a bridge.
Old Silent Hill (East) map.
Old Silent Hill (West) map.



Old Silent Hill
Outside Alchemilla Hospital
It's nighttime, and Silent Hill is living up to its name. No sound can be heard from the town except for your own footsteps on grimy pavement.

On the sidewalk is a chalk drawing of an angry-looking sun chewing on a crying stick figure of a child. Atop the drawing is a cassette player. Inserting the tape into the player, you hear what sounds like a recording of a radio talk show:
"Well folks, yesterday, summer solstice, longest hottest and sunniest day of the year saw a lot of activity locally, didn't we Tony?"

"Definitely right about that, Pat, a crime spree that police are saying, they're saying these are unrelated crimes, now, and people just tend to go a little crazier in the summer heat. What do we have here, now, uh, ah here we go. Robert Fitzpatrick, age 43, died in Brookhaven Hospital yesterday, police say he was stabbed six times by a delirious roommate who mistook Fitzpatrick for his daughter-in-law. Ouch. In Lakeside Amusement Park, Carrie Stanz, age 13, became separated from her school group, and anonymous reports tell us she was accosted and sexually assaulted by a park employee. Just goes to show, folks, never trust a clown! (beeping noise, hosts laugh) Teenagers! A group of teenagers, reportedly intoxicated, pushed over and shattered tombstones in our very own Cemetary last night at around two in the morning, and one of them was subsequently arrested there for indecent public exposure. Way to go, kids. Pat, you take a couple, this is just depressing."

"All right! Hmmm, let's see, oh, here's a good one! Police this morning found the decaying body of one Eleanor Marie Cappaletti, age 27, on the shore of Toluca Island. Reports say that she died of strangulation and posthumously suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the face and chest, and her darling fiancee is currently the number one suspect after police learned of a phone call he made to a friend in which he accused her of sexual indiscretions. Unfortunately for her grieving family, surprise surprise, her darling fiancee's body was also found in his apartment this morning! An apparent suicide. I don't have any notes here on the method, but apparently, there are pictures already up on the internet, and it was gruesome, ladies and gentlemen. Jimmy Marine was transported to Alchemilla Hospital, where he died. See ya in Hell, Jimbo! What else, what else... John Doe, unidentified hobo, dead in Rosewater Park, blah blah blah, oh, here we go! 23-year old Darius Boca attempted to rob 16-year old Derek Jensen at knifepoint as Derek was waiting for his father to pick him up from choir practice at Balkan Church yesterday. When Jensen proved not to have any money, Boca assaulted him, stabbing him twice in the chest. Neighbors witnessed the attack, but declined to call the police until five minutes after Boca had already made his hasty retreat. Nice going there, everyone. I think that's enough for this morning, don't you?"

"Pretty much, Pat. Always glad to be a member of the human race on a day like this!"


The Streets of Silent Hill
The shops and houses look as though they haven't seen human activity in many years. Paint is cracked and peeling from the walls, and a layer of dust is settled over the doorknobs. Most of the buildings cannot be entered; windows are boarded up, and door locks are jammed. In some cases, the doors even seem to have melded oddly with their frames. The streets are impassable at some points as noted on the map, blocked off by impossibly tall chain link fence and razor wire.

Toy Shop
A few small mannequins hang on strings from the ceiling in such a way that they seem to be pointed at you as you enter. A whole row of cotton-stuffed dolls in blue dresses have had their heads torn off. A small knife sits amongst a cluster of sad-faced clown dolls.

The Bridge
The bridge is lowered, and easy to pass over. If you should look over the sides, though, you will see no water. Instead of a tributary, it seems to be suspended over endless darkness.

Pet Shop
Cages that once contained cats, birds, hamsters and mice are all empty with no evidence that they were ever used. Several large wire cages intended for dogs, though, are still occupied even now. Rotting Sniffer dogs lie dead in each and every one, riddled with bullets, and the floor is sticky with their blood.

Balkan Church Exterior
On the large double doors to the ordinary-looking Balkan Church are drawn two things. The first is an angry-looking sun, pointing and smiling maliciously at you. The second is a bit of verse:
"Transgressions committed
are forgiven within.
To unlock sweet redemption,
consult the landscape of sin.

Neither motive nor measure,
nor method nor victim,
but places left tainted
are your order and dictum."
Next to the door is a keypad, the standard 3x3 with numbers 1-9. A little sun is drawn on its side. Check your puzzle solutions with a GM to determine if the doors open.


Balkan Church
Entryway
The entryway of the church is dim and dark, empty space whistling in the air of a high, vaulted ceiling. There is a font of what was once holy water, perhaps, but it is dried up, only black stains streaking the stone bowl. A number of paintings line the walls, but they are so worn and stained their subjects are difficult to discern. One features a hulking red figure; no amount of weathering can obscure its bulk. Across the way the portrait is even more smeared; the only discernible object is a wavering halo of flame. There is another door, leading to the Hallway.

Hallway
The hallway looks quite plain, if lightless and unkempt like everywhere else in this town. There are two doors along each side, and large double-doors at the far end. On the four smaller doors are written, "Sisters," "Brothers," "Fathers," and "Daughters." On the double-doors are written "Mothers" and "Suns." The "Fathers" door is locked, the other four doors are unlocked.

"Sisters"
Apparently the bedroom of some member of the church clergy. The closet does not contain priestly smocks or habits or anything so familiar, but strange red and white robes. Hanging on the wall is an oil painting of a pregnant young woman with shoulder-length dark hair and a corona about her head. She's chained to a wall by her hands and feet and is on fire, some flesh reddened and blackened, but oddly, looks blissfully happy about it. A bronze plaque at the bottom reads, "Holy Mother." Someone has slashed the painting from one corner to another.

"Brothers"
This seems to be a priest's study, but all the pages in the books are torn out and missing, and the desk is smashed into a million pieces, as though dropped from a great height or as though someone spent several hours on it with an axe.

"Daughters"
This seems to be one half of a confessional, the half intended for a penitent rather than the clergyman. The grated window to the other half is shut tight, and hanging above it is not a cross, but a symbol that looks like an open eye. The symbol itself seems to be bleeding, a slow lazy drop that runs down the wall and lands with a patter on the handle to the sliding confessional window.

"Mothers and Suns"
Beyond the double-doors is the church sanctuary. It's cramped and claustrophobic; you seem to jostle against each other even when you are far apart. It’s an odd quirk of perception—from the outside it looked broad, even roomy. Many of the pews have been overturned, making picking a path difficult. The only light in the room is a dull, watery glow over the altar, on which rests a book. The book with a marked off page which reads:
"Bless my mouth that these words read
offer passage free from dread

Bless my eyes that they may see
the veils shall be as glass to me

Bless my ears that they may hear
the silence in the spaces clear

Bless my hands that they may reach
the walls of other planes to breach

Bless my feet that they may walk
between the worlds, safe paths unlock

Bless my mind, Lord keep me sane
protect this traveller from all pain

All these things shall come to me
if Thou seest fit, provide the key."
An explanation beneath the verse is written in Latin, proclaiming this to be an incantation which will open a path between spirit world and the real world, provided one has a sacred object with such a portaling power in one's possession to focus the incantation upon.

Picking the book up feels like pulling an object from tar, and when it is freed, the room seems to shift and swirl around you. There is no sound, no light, but somehow everything seems loud and disorienting. Eventually the chaos builds to a frenzy and the walls ceiling and floor themselves begin to change. Long, wooden arms, patterned with wiry sinew and pulsing veins reach out to swipe and strike at you and your team members. These arms can be cut away, but more will always be produced. This "monster" will be more difficult to battle than any of the others encountered thus far.
Every so often, a bubbling sound preceeds a shrieking face appearing on a wall, floor, or ceiling amidst the arms. This is only visible for a short time, and then it sinks back into the surface it came from. Silencing its shriek—which means destruction of the face—will calm down the maelstrom and end the battle.

When all is returned to relative ‘peace’ the altar itself will sink into the floor, revealing a doorway behind it, to a secret room. This room contains another altar, but it isn’t nearly as benign as the one previous. The surface of the altar itself is splattered in red and thick, black sludge. An overturned goblet drips what appears to be spilled blood. Just beyond the altar looms a hole, about four feet in diameter and ringed with symbols written in red. Its darkness is endless, and you cannot see the bottom.

We strongly recommend against passing through this hole without a way to exit the world. And hopefully by now, it is July 19th. Please inform the GMs when your characters use the hole, and congratulations, you have completed your two worlds!

Enter THE HOLE? [yes] [no]




Monsters
All monsters can be killed. If you want to go for extra atmosphere, monsters may get back up again after being knocked down unless you stomp them good. ;-)

Bottoms
Appearance: A large odd-looking fleshy creature, with semi-hardened skin in some places, and exposed wiry musculature in others. It has oversized hands for feet, and there's just a lump where its head should be. Its actual head, with a contorted human face, takes the place of a lower torso. It groans occasionally as it moves, and when it's struck.
Movement: It gets around using its oversized hands, and has no problem balancing on one to take a swipe with the other. It can "sprint" at the same speed that a person can.
Attacks: It attacks by striking the target with one of its oversized hands, and packs a surprising amount of strength in the blow. Note that, because it attacks with what is effectively a leg, it cannot attack while on the move.
Defenses: Its skin is somewhat hardened, deflecting some blunt melee blows. It takes a lot of damage to take it down.
Probable Location: On the streets.

Gumhead (Grey or Red)
Appearance: It stands about 5'5'' and looks and sounds apelike. Its flesh seems to be rotting, and some of them have a second face apparently trying to emerge from its neck. Some of them carry long blunt weapons, lead pipes or branches or golf clubs or the like. Often appear in groups of 2-4.
Movement: They walk on two legs like a human, awkward-looking but surprisingly nimble on their feet. You can outrun them, but they're pretty good at dodging hits.
Attacks: Attacks with its blunt weapon, or just trying to pummel you with its hands. They're quiet adept at stealing a melee weapon from your hands and turning it against you.
Defenses: Tough to get solid hits on in melee, and because of its jerky movements, it's hard to shoot consistently. It takes a fair beating to take one down.
Probable Location: Anywhere.

Hummer
Appearance: A bat-like creature with a long sharp beak. Its wingspan is about two handspans, and it sounds like a buzzing insect as it flies. Tends to hide in a shadowy spot, in a corner or under an awning, until you pass by. They usually come in groups of 3-6.
Movement: Flies, but isn't very agile in the air.
Attacks: Scrapes or gashes you with its hooked proboscis as it flies by. Not very damaging.
Defenses: One blow is enough to elicit a bird-like screech and take it out.
Probable Location: On the streets.

Sniffer Dog
Appearance: Patches of it have fur, but the rest looks as though it's had its skin carefully stripped away. Its long tongue drags along the ground, and it's often found feeding on the corpses of dead Sniffers. Tend to appear in packs of 2-3.
Movement: Just like normal dogs. Very difficult to outrun.
Attacks: Mostly biting, sometimes clawing as well.
Defenses: A couple of blows are enough to take it down.
Probable Location: On the streets, and in the Pet Shop.

Ghosts
Although appearance, speed, and power vary by Victim, all ghosts behave essentially alike.
Appearance: Ghosts make low strange moaning noises from time to time, but are otherwise silent.
Movement: Ghosts float, sometimes just above ground, sometimes well above it. They can pass through walls, but it's a difficult process. They must struggle to pull themselves through, leaving trails behind them of what looks like molasses (see linked image). For this reason, most ghosts will not bother to pursue you if you go to another location.
Attacks: -An "aura of damage" surrounds all ghosts. If you are within about ten feet of the ghost, it begins to affect you, growing stronger the closer to the ghost that you are. Your life begins to literally leave you. This manifests as a feeling of weakness, red and blurred vision, a buzzing or ringing in your ears, and a headache so powerful that it can effectively paralyze you at close range to the ghost. Any open wounds that you have may begin to bleed badly, and you feel cold. A healthy person exposed to this effect uninterrupted for about three minutes, dies. If you are wearing a Saint Medallion, however, the effect on you is completely negated.
-The voluntary attack that ghosts use is to reach into your chest cavity and constrict your heart, paralyzing you and causing more and more harm the longer the contact is maintained. Sometimes this attack causes blood to appear over the entry point, but it does not actually cause a wound. Ghosts are reluctant to touch you if you're wearing a Saint Medallion.
Defenses: Ghosts cannot die. Dealing a sufficient amount of melee damage will cause them to fall to the ground and be inactive for about 15 seconds. Usually, this takes the equivalent of several axe blows, or a full clip of regular ammunition. Shooting a ghost with a single silver bullet causes them to the ground and writhe, gasping and making a strange sucking noise, for about 30 seconds.

Victim 01
Appearance: A tall bald man, dripping and decaying, in tattered black clothes.
Attacks: His "aura" and physical attack are the weakest of the ghosts, and he's not very fast, either.
Probable Location: In Balkan Church.

Victim 12
Appearance: A teenage boy in a brown beanie hat, his head slowly wobbles from side-to-side in an unnatural way.
Attacks: His attacks deal moderate damage, but he's not very aggressive.
Probable Location: On the streets.

Victim 14
Appearance: A man in a brown sweater. Sometimes, as he reaches for you, you can hear the sound of bones wetly cracking.
Attacks: Quite aggressive, and his "aura" saps life more quickly than those of the previous ghosts.
Probable Location: In Balkan Church.

Victim 17
Appearance: A young man perpetually on fire, writhing in agony. If you're wearing a Saint Medallion, the fire that covers him dies down a bit. He holds a broken metal chalice in one hand.
Attacks: Victim 17 can use the jagged chalice as a gashing weapon in addition to the usual attacks. He's somewhat slow, and his heart-constricting attack causes moderate damage, but his aura is unusually powerful. Additionally, the flames can and will burn those who fight him at close range, even those who are usually impervious to fire.
Probable Location: In Balkan Church.

Victim 18
Appearance: A fat balding shirtless man with the numbers "18121" carved into his bulging stomach. His eyes are white and rolled back in his head, and he sometimes sings a garbled, eerie, warbling wordless song. He sometimes appears wielding a nightstick.
Attacks: Very slow, but his attacks are very powerful, and it takes a lot of damage to take him down.
Probable Location: In Balkan Church.

Re: Balkan Church - Mothers and suns - Battle

"Oh crap..."
It's all Hellboy has time to get out as the room changes and the arms begin to swipe at them. Holstering his gun, the demon begins smashing at the hands and arms with his stone fist. Pieces snap, crumble, and break away, but it does no good. They seem to come back unaffected.

"What the heck do ya gotta do to this place?!"
He swings to pummel another hand, but is swatted across the small room to smash through pews and crash into a wall.
"Ok...that is no way to behave in a church."

Hellboy picks himself up and charges at one of the hands, crushing it with a few blows. Another springs quickly in its place.
"Oh come on!!"

Re: Balkan Church - Mothers and suns - Battle

And Warren is thoroughly and completely screwed. He has a bullet hole in one shoulder, melted metal in his hand, the damn book tucked under his arm and a scalpel. What? Central casting forgot his high heels and faulty flashlight?

But he tried, slashing at anything not... friendly, that comes at him as best he can. Flames lick at his one arm, the fire seeming to bring him calm where nothing else did. It barely does anything, more seeming to infuriate than stop. And the noise just seems to burrow into his head, eating at his ear drums until it seems it's all he can hear. The shrieking and the yells of his teammates.

Re: Balkan Church - Mothers and suns - Battle

He was having a hard time keeping track of everyone and everything, with all the arms waving around. He did catch a glimpse of Warren starting to burn up, while holding the book, which may be a potential key in solving this problem.

"Warren! Give Kate the book and cov--!" His shout was short lived as he got hit by another arm, this one from behind. He was dropped to his knees, and ended up face to face with that shrieking face as it appeared in the floor. Leon ignored it at first, opting to kick the arm that was taking another swing at him, then largely out of pure spite, he fired two 9mm shots at the face in the floor just as it was disappearing.

"Will you shut up!

It was then that why this seemed so familiar clicked into place. "Salazar...", or more accurately, the final battle with him, with the constant vine whips and the the mutated 'Left Hand', and the constant noise, though instead of shrieking it was a stream of insults. More importantly, Salazar kept hiding, and the only time Leon could do any real damage was when he showed his face.

"Try aiming for the face!" Leon didn't know if that would work here, but there was only but so long they could keep up against this onslaught.

Re: Balkan Church - Mothers and suns - Battle

The face? Hellboy punches and tears his way through more of the arms; getting tired of watching them respawn and keeping an eye out for that screaming face. When it does appear on a wall, he lunges at it and punches it with his mammoth, indestructible right hand as many times as he can before it sinks away again.
"Get back here! I'm not done wi..."

A hand grabs him by the leg and drags him across the broken boards and mess of the church floor.
"Le' go!"
Hellboy pulls the Samaritan free and shoots the offending hand to be free from its grip.

Re: Balkan Church - Mothers and suns - Battle

He barely hears Leon, so busy trying to just stay on his feet and out of range. And not drop that damn scalpel. Twirling, shoving the book to Kate with a growl as he turns. Letting go, not struggling to hold back as the flames lapped up to his shoulders. It felt hot on his face, something he had never felt before but not burning even though he could feel it burning through the wound, cauterizing it.

Fighting as best he can, slashing and burning at anything that reached for him, and by default, for Katie. Warren just kept himself between those hands and her, with the book, as best he could.

Re: Balkan Church - Mothers and suns - Battle

Leon grabbed a piece of a broken pew, and used that to fight off some of the hands. The shrieking happened again, from above, and Leon fired off three shots from his .45. The first two hit, but the third veered wide right, his aim knocked off course when one of the arms hit him.

He got hit again, dropping his gun, but managed to clear out the arms near him and retrieve it. However, by then, the face retreated into the wall.

Re: Balkan Church - Mothers and suns - Battle

With his revolver gripped in his left hand and his right hand serving as a weapon of its own, Hellboy lays waste to dozens of swiping, striking arms. Some great good it does him, but at least it feels good to do. When the face appears above them he lets Leon fire on it, knowing his own bullets are very limited and he's likely to miss anyway.

However, when the face soon moves to rise from the floor, Hellbot throws himself on it, punching it mercilessly. Finally, he fires a couple of rounds into the thing just before it disappears again.
"Geez, what's with this place? Does ev'rything gotta have a trick answer?!"

Warren doesn't want to answer Hellboy. Come on, he knows he shouldn't but with a straight line like that. "Yes, it does. It's a rule."

Yelling it out and yet trying to sound casual about it as he slashes and stabs at anything that comes near him and Kate.

"Now figure out the damn trick before I burn out,' he snarls, face cast in bright light.

And Leon can't help but that that if he had a rocket launcher on him, they'd be finished with this thing by now.

Warren wasn't the only one who needed to worry about energy. Even Leon was getting winded, moving about as much as he was. The face finally appeared again, on a wall near him this time. He fired off the remaining six bullets in the clip in his .45, all six hitting their mark.

The face finally began to crack, but as Leon reloaded, it disappeared into the wall.

Re: Balkan Church - Mothers and suns - Battle

Hb may not be as quick to get tired, but he sure as hell isn't happy about this situation. He fights off as many arms as he can, takin a few, rough hits until, finally, the face appears on a nearby wall.

He tears his way free of the hands and arms and begins firing on the screaming head. When all five bullets are spent into the thing, he moves in close and begins slamming at the cracking visage with his stone fist.
"Shut it! None of us are havin' a good day!"
The cracks spread and there's a sound like the scream itself is shattering before it goes quiet, breaks and disappears. The arms stop moving, some snap and some recede back into walls and floors.

"'Bout time... geez... Everybody ok?"
He rubs at a bruised and battered shoulder and has a look around at everyone.

Re: Balkan Church - Mothers and suns - Battle

It was like a switch. The moment the sound dies, that he hears Hellboy's voice, the flames snap off. And Warren very nearly goes down with it. Between the pain, the trauma and the damage, keeping up that fire for that long had left him feeling literally drained.

"I'm alive,' he mutters, tasting fire even in his mouth, like he'd charred shit in there and that was when it hit him that he was likely dehydrated.

Tired, shoulders slumped, he looked around and saw the altar slip into the floor, sees the door revealed. "If this puts up back in the hospital, I swear I'm going to kill something,' he mutters, pushing it open.

This room contains another altar, but it isn’t nearly as benign as the one previous. The surface of the altar itself is splattered in red and thick, black sludge. An overturned goblet drips what appears to be spilled blood. Just beyond the altar looms a hole, about four feet in diameter and ringed with symbols written in red. Its darkness is endless, and the bottom can not be seen.

Re: Balkan Church - Mothers and suns - Battle

Leon just leans against a pew as things finally return to normal. "God damn this place..." And he though Salazar's castle has some messed up traps in it.

He takes a few breaths, taking a moment to look over himself. A few cuts, several bruises, his ribs got a bit banged, but nothing broke. Mostly, he's just out of breath. "I'm fine."

He follows through the door, and looks at the hole and the alter. This was largely out of his realm of expertise.

"What now? We try the incantation?"

Hellboy's feet drag a little; hooves cutting grooves in the wood floor as he enters the new room right behind Leon.
"If we use the book and it works we're still leavin' a lot of team members behind. Who knows if we can use it again t'come back and get 'em?"

He walks over to the edge of the hole and stares down in to the deep, black nothing. He kicks a bit of debris in and never hears it land.
"I think this's our exit, kids. Just as safe and invitin as everything else around here."

Kate has the book open already. Yes, she managed to find and keep the page.

"We might not get another chance to make it out," she says. "I don't mean to sound grim, but it's not like we can do this without Walter knowing."

She glances at Hellboy.

Warren's quiet for a long time, listening to them and looking around. Finally he just shrugs.

"So, if you hear me screaming? Don't follow, okay?" He steps up to the edge, peering down as he takes a deep breath. "And tell my family I love them.' And with that he stepped off the edge and let himself fall.

"Yeah, point", Leon admits in response to Hellboy. When did he become willing to leave the others behind? He looked down at his arm, and there those damned hallucinations go again. What is this place doing to him? He gritted his teeth, but looked up when he heard Warren speak.

Looking over, he watched as Warren jumped in, and despite reaching for him, Leon couldn't get him.

"Stupid kid..." was all Leon said in reaction before pulling out his gun and diving in after Warren.

Well, it doesn't sound like Warren and Leon have leaped to their deaths. No screaming or loud thud.

Hellboy holsters the Samaritan and stares down.
"Might as well. These circles ALWAYS mean an exit..or an entrance". Might as well find out. HB walks up to the edge and looks back to Kate.
"It'll be ok, I think. Wanna go together?"
He holds his left hand out to her.

There's just this sort of kid logic that if he has a hold of her she'll be ok. A lot of Hellboy's logic is sort of little kid logic. It's gotten him this far, though!

"Hold on. ... On three.."
His hand wraps all the way around hers as he gets a firm hold on her. He counts silently down.
"Now."
And he jumps in, hoping for the best. He reallyhates falling long distances.
