Mission Log by Maria Mester
Start in Romanian mountains. Snape of the One-Eyed Chapter Epsilon One drops off a demon sitting on an arcane toilet in a trailer. No info other than “don’t break the seal”. Chapter tries (unsuccessfully) to learn demon’s name. Demon summoned away to Indianapolis, IN Westin Hotel during Gen Con.
Chapter enters a room w/ Lovecraftian type LARP. Demon is standing in the middle of a summoning circle. Turns to smoke and enters 4 cultists—2 guys 2 girls—granting them his power to make wishes.
“I wish all this was real!” LARPers turning to various creatures. Dayman become “The Dayman”; shining halo and the bulge in pants is no longer a sock.
2nd wish “I wish I was a chick magnet.” Guy gets covered in spontaneously appearing chickens. Dayman tries to help, “Come join me in the sun!” Chicken man combusts; room smells like roast chicken. Dayman smacks into the ceiling and falls 20 feet; takes only damage that session.
Vladimir attempts to incite riot, “Proletariat always gets screwed by the oligarchy.” Orc-Pig thing attacks cultist and misses; now the room smells like bacon too. Jack clamps 2 cultist mouths shut with his electrokinesis and metal dental hardware.
The 3rd cultist Blonde Chick wishes for unlimited wishes and takes the demonic smoke from the other 2. “I wish you to worship me”. Every Hunter makes his roll to resists. She asks them to join her in raising the Elder Gods. Jack asks to understand and goes temporarily insane. Ursula attacks a wall column trying to bring down the ceiling and the swimming pool above. Dayman super karate kicks the bitch in the face. Vlad shoots her in the head. But her head grows right back.
Dayman wishes that Wolf was there. He magically pops in. Grabs a handful (literal) of LARPers and throws them; they explode. Wall and pool come down. Swimming Jack wishes “everything is back to normal”. Room goes back to normal. Demon materializes again. His name turns out to be Shirley and is banished back to hell.
Jack has discovered that the Crawling Chaos is real and trying to invade our world. Crawling Chaos is also an extremely popular game (RPGs, TCGs, MMORPGs) that include real spells and rituals. LARPers group the Esoteric Fellowship of the Crawling Chaos. Jack also finds he can’t use his electrokinesis; possible related to his wish for everything to be “normal”.
