- Inventive uses for condoms. When you are 500 feet below the Pacific Ocean, facing a formidable foe who can only be stopped by one means, salt, just what do you turn to? Guns? Fists? Begging? No! All these would leave you in exactly the same situation. Dead. The wise would reach into their pockets for the handy packet of condoms (in this case Darnell's extra-large, heavy-duty ones) and fill them up with sea water and throw them at the foe. It's so simple isn't it? Well, that's exactly what happened and by judicial use of rugby tackles, the deed was done. Obviously there were some liberties taken on my part, but with such a great idea how could I not be lenient?
- The strange case of Lenny Stroker. Poor Lenny, he just didn't know what hit him. There he was just doing his job out in the wonderful surroundings of Tonga when descending in his world came the wrecking crew. Having already had him under surveillance, the party decided that a visit to his room was in order. Using the ever willing charms of Hacker Wilk as a distraction a number of them affected an entry into his room looking for clues. After finding what they had come for, the party then set about stealing anything that wasn't nailed down. Fair enough, you might think but when they returned to the US, they discovered the location of his apartment in New Orleans and carried out exactly the same raid. TV, Video, drink, money, you name it, it walked. Unfortunately, Lenny had no chance to get is revenge as the next time he encountered the party, he was eaten by a large spider like creature.
- German ambush. You know the problem, you would like to question a suspect but don't want to give yourself away. So began the tale of an unfortunate assistant at a biochemical research facility. Late one night, while the said individual was walking home the Mystery Machine pulled up along side and he was quickly bundled into the back. The party, wearing a variety of masks and fake beards proceeded to question him. In order that their voices could not be identified by this terrified man, they all spoke with heavy German accents 'Ach, zo, mein friend. Vas ver you doing inside zer rezersch fazility?' Priceless!
- Free Diamonds anyone. OK so there was this large crystal that was made of stolen diamonds that everyone had seen. Just what would you do if you came across a bag of leftovers that everyone else assumed had been used in crystal? That's right, hand them back to the authorities. Well Darnell and Jackie are far too sensible for that. Having passed up the opportunity to pocket a dead man's gold sovereigns, they weren't about to let $750,000 of diamonds go back to their rightful owner. I say $750k but it was actually $749,992.10 since $7.90 of this monty haul was the cost of the bribe to keep George's mouth shut.
- The tree incident. To be honest, the part was just doing what a party should do, that is investigating a series of events. Unfortunately for 3/7ths of the party it was to prove their last outing. Now, the dried blood on the large alter might have given a clue that something might be going on, but having all seven characters sitting in the trees waiting for it to happen was going a bit too far. So when the Outer God appeared it was inevitable that some of them weren't going to make it. Thus was the fate of Jed, Harry and the telephone engineer who's name and character sheet escapes me. The first two made it back to civilisation and are now locked away for their and the public's safety while Ed's character met a much more graphic end detailed here.
- The unfortunate bellboy. Now, being hardened veterans of the Cthulhu mythos, the party ought to be aware when an innocent is being used by some higher power for its own ends. Such was the fate of Gabriel Marse. All he was trying to do was recover an item that the party, as per normal, had stolen. True, it was at 3:30am and his demeanour was somewhat zombie like but that's not the case here. It's a simple situation, you think, a call to the manager who would remove the offending intruder. Not for the party and Li Choi Hung in particular. In full Jackie Chan mode, he executed a perfect spinning heel kick and put the back of the unfortunate young man's head through the front. The ensuing police questioning resulted in no conviction, but Jackie was deported.
- Top gun skills. Quite why anyone would want to use an automatic pistol at point blank range to kneecap someone is beyond me. Not surprisingly the recipient of this punishment died.
- Growing monsters. I don't know what George was trying to accomplish when he buried that large stone tentacle on a beach in Tonga, but I assume he knows. Needless to say, it's still there.
- Who's your mother now. George again. This was looking like a top plan as things go. The best way to have dealt with the statue was to leave it alone. So locking it in a safety deposit box was a good idea. Sending the key to his mother and not telling any of the other party members showed more than a little paranoia, though. When it transpired that all of George's life had been fabricated he was sure that he still had access to the statue. "The key's with my mother," he said. 'Are you sure that she's your mother?' I replied. Short pause and slap of forehead "Doh!"
- Giving the looney the shotgun. George has never really been all there and why the party gave him the shotgun loaded with the limited number of round pellets is a mystery. So while Jackie was having parts of his anatomy ripped off, George was ridding central park of the pigeon problem.
- Mud and lots of it. Officer Dibble, on learning that certain creatures cannot materialise when a room has no corners proceeded to have several hundred pounds of mud delivered and mould it into the corners of the room like some spaced out pot-smoking hippy. I believe that it was right about this time that the other party members lost what little respect they previously had for the forces of law and order.
- Tell me when you're opening the box and I'll roll the dice. Officer Dibble was desperate to get himself killed so when his tiny police mind managed to solve the small puzzle box he was overjoyed. This joy was swiftly replaced by abject terror as the Dimension Shambler appeared. The monster itself was probably quite taken aback since it had been summoned into the back of a van. Fortunately for the party, Darnell managed to keep his foot on the brake, his hands on the wheel, his vision out of the rear view mirror and guide the vehicle to safety where the shambler could take its time eating the party. It was only through the impressive Jackie, in full film star mode, that they managed to come out of it as he was transformed into a Mythos creature killing machine. Officer dibble owe him a great debt of gratitude.
