March 18-20 2085 Report from Second Lieutenant Dodi Ravenwood regarding team Cerberus
After calling in air support and Red, Team Cerberus was able to escape the hot zone set up by the cultist. Dodging sniper fire and saving the Professor from the rubble they crowded in the ambulance. The team took the P.O.W. to a information extraction area Zero alone was familiar about. There they used “creative negotiations” to attempt to extract information from her. To their surprise, she invoked the Yellow King’s true name. The place was assaulted by a one man kill team. The man who answered for the Yellow King was none other than Nyarlathotep
After killing everyone in the building except for Team Cerberus, he tells team Cerberus that he is the “Herald of the Gods” and that the Yellow King wants Zero for something special. He kills the cultist to silence her. As he turns to leave, Sleeper lunges forward and touches the man on the face. He stiffens and falls unconscious to the ground, the man then leaves. The team did manage get enough information to know that the Children of Chaos are involved in the orgone spike in EOD
, Esoteric Order of Dagon, territory. The team packs up and leaves the house of slaughter to head back to base. The team waits a couple of days for Silent Night to heal up. After a spirited discussion with Commander Dodi about respect Team Cerberus gears up before heading back into the mouth of the beast.
There they see corpses nailed to the support beams and curtains literally made of bodies lining the walls. They came across bodies of monsters they couldn’t identify, with the strange creatures that take over the body assimilating them. After burning them they crawled deeper into the cave to discover a large monolith converting cultist energy, causing the spike. Meanwhile outside a stealthy figure hunted Mr.fantastic, the woman would later introduce herself as ? (white fox)
She mentioned her team was KIA
and offered her help. After a hostile first meetings with the team she was able to convince them that she was on their side. When Team Cerberus started their advance on the monolith she helped by keeping the cultist from impeding the advance to place the satchel charge on the monolith. Team Cerberus blew up the monolith before it could do any further harm. The resulting blast came and the team ran for their lives. The only thing in their path was a creature that they had never seen before. White Fox informed them that it was called a phantom
, and it was being controlled by one of the strange parasitic worms that had infected Zero!
