Dates: Early May, 1938
Location: San Francisco
Darcy Aisling, Robert Kane and Mariko Tashimori-Simons meet as they are going to Chrismon Yarborough’s bookstore. Arriving there, they find the place has been burglarized. They offer their help to clean up and determine what’s been lost; they discover that books related to lycanthropy have been taken. Further investigation takes them to the hospital room of Alberto Darlington. Darlington is a werewolf hunter, assisted by his sister Maria, and was attacked by his quarry. They also meet Colin Christian, a young man who is smitten with Maria and burglarized Chrismon’s shop, stealing books in a misguided attempt to help.
Robert, Darcy and Chrismon take over Darlington’s investigation, with Robert and Colin going to Golden Gate Park and Darcy and Chrismon going to a flophouse on Van Ness Avenue, where they meet Angela Hall — who transforms into a werewolf and flees out a window right in front of them. They pursue her to Golden Gate Park, where she is intercepted by the others. She is knocked unconscious, then sedated with help from Roger Entman (who had been summoned by Robert earlier).
Later, when Angela has recovered her human form, she tells her story; the characters offer hope for an eventual cure for her.
This was the first of a series of adventures featuring the trio of PCs The Silver Ghost, Darcy Aisling and Chrismon Yarborough. These were all played via instant message chat.
