This is a non power character rpg
we are all human except for the monster
make a new character.. we have several players already but we need some townsfolk to be victims etc
Perdition. Fifty years ago people would have called it a one horse town. Today, that horse is dead. The town is tiny, only three hundred people living within ten miles of its center. Crooked, ancient buildings stand, some on stilts out of the murky water. The roads are little more than dirt tracks through the bayou. Life is slow. Life is simple. Life is about to end.
For as long as man has walked the Earth there have been stories about what lurked in the darkness beyond the circle of light cast by the camp fire. Stories of creatures, phantoms and monsters that walk like men. Most of them are nonsense. Just tales to chill the blood. Some have a grain of truth shining through the words. And a few, hidden away in the dark places of the world, are true. This story is one of the few. Deep in the shadowy heart of the Nawlin's swamps, an ancient evil lay. Malevolent and very much alive. For centuries it slumbered, hidden by the dark waters of the bayou. But now it has awoken. Silently it moves through the trees and the quiet pools. Insects part before it and gators slip into the rivers, not wanting to catch its malicious eye. It is searching. Casting around in the summer heat. Looking for what it needs to become itself again. Long ago such a beast was worshiped as a god. But it is no deity. A creature of flesh and bone, with an intelligence greater than humanity's. In the town of Perdition, it finds what it needs to sate its feral hunger.
Killing another human being is easy. We are after all fragile creatures. But it takes a special type of person to do it. Most murders are committed in a moment of blind, passionate anger. When the reasoning part of the brain, the part which makes us human, is shut off. Leaving only the animal in its place. People will kill in anger, fear and for a higher purpose. But it takes a special type of person to kill in cold blood. To take a life and revel in it. This was the type of person the creature needed. And it found them, a mile away from Perdition, a family, and it claimed them for its own.
In the past few months ten people have gone missing from the highway that passes the turnoff to Perdition. All of them last seen in the local gas station. So the FBI send two agents to poke around. They will never find anything, their superiors know that. People go missing all the time in Nawlins and there is a lot of swamp to search. But a gesture must be made. Little do they know that the two agents arrival will spark one of the most horrific events in modern America.
We are all playing under new characters but this is who is who

Uncle: Final Arrow
