1 In ‘24 a group of investigator traveled the galaxy on some sort of mission
2 Those investigators apparently met with disaster. One of them WALTER WIN(human), was Jan Win-Rog’s father. He forbade her from talking about those day in ‘24-days from which Walter never fully recovered-but now he’s passed on, Jan wants to know what it was that happened.
3 JAN knows of one remaining cohort of her father’s from his investigatory days; LOWDUG a rodian from rodia. She has a dozen letters that Lowdug wrote to Walter over the years.
The letters came from two address. A Rodian sanitarium and the Lowdug family estate in the swamps of Rodia
4 Lowdug has been a patient at Joy Grove since ‘24. GOB reached the hospital later that same year. Lowdug was out in ABY0-1 but Gob was in residence without interruption since ’24
5 Someone has been etching mysterious warding eye symbols on the walls of Joy Grove.
6 Lowdug reveals what he can remember about ’24 investigation. There was a depraved cult the summoned something Walter called THE THING WITH A THOUSAND MOUTHS.
7 Lowdug confides that he has a notebook with more info, as well as a secret key at his estate.
8 GOB recalls a little bit about the cult itself, but his memory is a jumble of nightmarish deformed images fogged out by medications. He remembers ESCAVARY “crazy parties”
9 Gob killed Vowrry (a wookie investigator) by stabbing him to death the he fled the ritual scene.
10 Escavary cast some kind of spell that night, on the cultists. “or on me at least” this was right before the summoning.
11 Gob only saw a glimpse of the thing they summoned before he fled a midst the blaster play and explosives. it had “long weird limbs and no head, but mouths, lots of mouths and teeth”
12 Lowdug hid a box in the rear of his estate. It contains the journal of when he was off his meds. Disturbing pictures of the thing that was summoned. A key for a Corusant data vault, and a ancient warding stone stylized like an eye.
13 The crew of the black hole are attacked by thugs. The thugs sport tattoo’s from the wheel, and speak a language not anything familiar to anyone.
