You see, we went back to Manchac. The town had been torched by some bad guys, who had driven up to Morgan Freeman's house (the one Sutcliffe didn't burn down). We requisitioned a vehicle and drove up there, blew up one of the trucks and walked through fields of sugarcane toward gunfire.
On the plus side, we found the dame we'd been looking for, and her brother, and a Voodoo priest.
On the downside, we also found a gang of baddies with a tommy gun.
On the other hand, the invisible monster was also about to show up ...

For the next three sessions, we'll be doing something else because we're a player down so can't finish the adventure. First session will be a game of Relic, but not sure what's going to be after that. We'll see if it's quotable, and if it isn't, you'll find out what happened when a bunch of Jurisfiction agents invaded Wuthering Heights.
