"Grotesque Mockery" is a mystery by Sean F. Smith for Rosewood Abbey. Someone defaced a grotesque from the church's northern transept to the likeness of the Abbey's prior.

#iHunt: *Terms and conditions apply (Session 2 of 7)
Shane runs for Kae, Matthew Arcilla, and Thomas Manuel
After a couple of missed sessions ruined my numbering, we're back - although sadly without Anti-Christian Death Starr. Nikko, Judy and Kraken face a pair of Frankensteins in an abandoned cellar. The hunters each deal with their own romantic disappointments and surprises, as well as problems at home and work, before returning to the #iHunt app to look for new monster-hunting jobs.
In this seminar/Q&A Lowell Francis talks about the basics of the GUMSHOE system--how it works, advice for GMing, and best practices for play. This includes a Q&A at the end from participants. He's not an expert on GUMSHOE, just someone who has run it a bunch. Talk outline here.

Madelancholy runs for Ben, Eirinar, and Jack
Question-answering took an extended turn, and summoning the Gargoyle turns sensual and dangerous for Lord Oda and Smoke. Mildred meets a mysterious stranger and then seeks the Creature of Cremorne.
