Episode 7 Malleus
Warning: gameplay recordings may and probably do include language and material offensive to some listeners. Ok, many listeners. Listener discretion is advised.
There is a short catch-up on the PlayAARG website if you skipped episode 6. Complete show notes for episode 7 also on the website.
In Episode 6, the Aurors were sent to find a missing poisons master with a penchant for experimenting with magical plants. They learned that he'd built his own experimental garden in an abandoned subway platform under New York - and that his experimentations went awry. He created bitey chomp chomp plants, sort of a cross between Audrey II and the piranha plants from Super Mario Brothers, and they ended up eating him. The Aurors then made contact with a very old being of unknown origin and species named Pyewacket. The poisons master had been talking to Pyewacket, although what he learned went to the grave with him. Whatever Pyewacket is, the Aurors know he's very old, possibly very powerful, and has a poor opinion of humans.
The Aurors arrive at the scene of a shooting and begin looking for signs of magic. When nothing turns up they wonder how the crime could've been committed. Then they realize that nobody ordered a ballistics test or an autopsy and set about looking for the agents in charge to give them what for. Then they realize they are the agents in charge.
Then the Aurors find themselves entantled in the most deadly game of all - politics. You'd think I'd have learned my lesson about that with the Amity campaign.
Vincent Porterfeld was one of the contacts the Aurors were given on their first day as possible sources of information. Nobody wanted to talk to Vincent.
