(Friday, Oct. 17th –Waning Moon) With the recent massacre the expedition back to Cobb’s Corners had been delayed while new team members Samson and Lynch were recruited, and the others take full advantage of that break to sit on Dr. Drake’s therapy couch, as well as re-examine and finalize plans for additional gear for the expedition. On the 17th they finally arrive at the Maclearan Farmhouse (their caravan having drawn a few stares passing through town), where they find it busy with FOC workers finishing upgrading their new base of operations. Larry and Barnabas wander off with Samson, their new Chief of Security, to set up traps around the compound, while the others settle in at the farmhouse proper. The men decide they can handle dividing all the watches up between themselves (the ladies need their beauty sleep), and everyone is quite pleased with Matherson’s cooking.
Ripley and Claudia find themselves tormented by strange dreams, and share their distress with each-other in the morning over breakfast. A common theme in both dreams proves to be the Sugar Maple forest behind the farmhouse (and screams), so they agree to add a search of the nearby woods to their investigative agenda. Samson comes back after checking his booby-traps and informs them one of them had been sprung in the night, leaving a small amount of Mi-Go residue.
It is decided that for their first day of investigation the group will split as follows:
- Travelling to Cobb’s Corners to chat with locals – Aldus, Sister Mary, and Marvin Jonson (the latter planning to acquire more supplies from the local store).
- Exploring the Woods behind the Farmhouse – Claudia, Ripley, Barnabas & Larry.
- Exploring the nearby Hills – Samson & Drake.
- Staying at the Maclearan Farm – Matherson (to study the Mi-Go sample) & Lynch (working on the truck).
