I have traveled three days now from the last town, prairie and plains as far as eyes can see… And last night was the worst. I get caught up in to a storm. Two of my tent lines went loose and I went out to to fix them. I light up a lantern and few moments later wind knock it down and my tent was on fire. I some how managed to get fire and kept my self warm and mostly dry, for rest of the night.
In the morning storm had passed and I get going again. I heard a rumor that there might be a small village ahead, and usually these kind of villages might have something to help with. And when I get there, they did have something. Town’s sheriff told me to help Mr. Chambers investigate some murders. This is not my area, but I might learn something.
Es ist noch kein Meister vom Himmel gefallen.
Mr. Chambers was really sure, that this must be done by some kind of beast, no man can do this kind of damage. Oh yeah, they blame some man for this, stranger that they found unharmed and covered in blood next to victims and can’t blame them for that part, but wounds victims have, doesn’t add up. There was one witness, drunken store keeper. He told us about some lizard men and that there was this big man size beast and those two started fighting, I think that I should have listen to that man…

At the crime scene, I found these strange footprints. Me and Mr. Chambers geared up and started to follow these, because it was only solid lead. After I while we noticed that storm was coming… Great…
After a while, the river bank started to fill up and then we noticed something. Body parts started to flow in the water. As we moved towards upstream, we passed more and more body parts.
We found a source. There was this pit, on the riverside, full on body parts. Mr. Chambers went there to look and I noticed that something was getting closer. There was one of the villagers and he told that village was under attack and they need help. He took us there as fast as he could and we heard gun shots near the sheriff’s office. We ran there, and I saw… Well I wasn’t sure what I saw, but Kesuke had told me that this world is full of strange creatures, that we have only heard stories about. These ones was one of those kind of things. It was some kind of walking fossil, I guess… Stoned bones… Sheriff shot one of these creatures and I ran up to fight another one. Creature wounded me badly, but sheriff shot it too. Sheriff dragged me to a doctor to got patched up immediately. There Chambers told him what we saw at river banks and that most likely these was the reason for those murders. He offered us rooms for the night. Finally, bed to sleep in…
As we where going to sleep, I noticed something. Water on a puddle started shaking. After a while, I started to heard distant thud and shaking followed it… Could it be that there is bigger version of these creatures? I told sheriff and Chambers about noises and they heard and saw shaking too… We still have some time to prepare what is coming….
