Our Weird Adventures game got postponed another week. So memories don't get dim during the hiatus, I thought I'd review where things stand with the major NPCs in this tale:
William Carmody: A brilliant scientist working on automata. He was in possession of an alien artifact that appears to have been related to the Machineries of Night. He's now a brain in a jar with a bad memory and a automaton caretaker.
Olimpia Kapec: Carmody's missing fiancee and lab assistant. Maybe Carmody's would-be murderer's nabbed her? So why can no trace of her be found except for a few photos?
Silas Atwill: Hazzard's chief of Automata Research--and secretly an acolyte of the cloaked and black armor wearing Master of the machine uprising. The Master disintegrated him rather than let him be captured. He had a copy of a strange manifesto referencing the Machineries of Night in in his home.
Eisenmensch: Men made more (and perhaps less) than human in the service of their fatherland. Some of these disgruntled cyborg veterans seem to have been recruited into the Master's cause: transforming all of humanity into machines.
Machineries of Night: Is this the black mass of tiny cogs and wheels beneath Greasy Lake? The presence that seems to make the psychic Loone a bit queasy. When the Machineries first invaded it took blowing Gabriel's heavenly horn to defeat them. Is all they need the complete dodecahedron to live again?
