Bill Wessler is the biggest bully in high school. Just this week, Bill dared anyone brave enough to spend the entire night in the old Denford school on the edge of town. The old 2-story building is surrounded by a tangled meadow of chest-high weeds and brambles. The walls are covered in ivy, the windows boarded up. The front door is slightly open. Bill and his two friends stand far behind you at the edge of the meadow, the lights of their car on, playing loud music, drinking beers and laughing amongst themselves. “We’ll be watching!” he shouts. “No sneaking out unless you wanna be known as chicken!” Once you enter, you can’t leave until sunrise tomorrow morning. It is almost sunset on Halloween night…

Nyarlathotep… the crawling chaos… I am the last… I will tell the audient void…I do not recall distinctly when it began, but it was months ago. The general tension was horrible. To a season of political and social upheaval was added a strange and brooding apprehension of hideous physical danger; a danger widespread and all-embracing, such a danger as may be imagined only in the most terrible phantasms of the night…

In blood and madness, they will pay just for a chance for the world to see the dawn one more time. Find out who lives and who dies in the last session of the RPPR run of Masks of Nyarlathotep. Thanks for listening.
