Moon's Eye Mirror

Absurdist Comedy with Spider
Seriously, I didn't predict the direction of this one.

After determining that the thieves were only likely to return once they had left, the group decided to take Asana to dinner. Hilarity ensued.

Suddenly, Alligators
Well, the bus wasn't technically being attacked...

Biliku led the mages back to the bus, exhausting her magic for now by speeding their travel. Once there, they found a number of spiders defending the bus from an enormous albino alligator — often over the protestation of the bus’ occupants. Once the repairman is ensconced in the bus, the mages join the spiders in defeating the alligator. Terra provides a great deal of healing to wounded spiders in the course of the fight; one of them — Seven-Eyed Asana — decides to remain with the mages instead of returning to the woods with her mother.

Laying the Dead to Rest
Hard to be mean to ghost kids.

After the appearance of Uncle Arthur, our heroes hide with varying degrees of skill. Once he’s realized that there are interlopers in his house, he elects to try and scare them with threats shouted and displayed, putting his more-human fist through the wall. Akuji takes advantage of this, pinning his arm with a dagger between its bones, and he and Gil run around to threaten him. He proves to be far from human; instead, it seems, he’s sworn himself to the Beasts Above, and their maddening obscenity is carved into his flesh. When he proves uncooperative Ajuki jams a knife in one gill-slit and a hand in the other, and Gil kills him in an attempt to pin him to the wall. Something bursts on Akuji’s skin, burning his hand. Biliku takes umbrage at this, using her own poison to clean away Arthur’s and weaving a bandage. With the bad put down, they turn back to the children. Akuji promises to look after their mother as they fade away. Gil does some investigating and they believe they track her down in Lake City.

Of course it couldn't be that easy.
Where even the gods know cell phones need charge

Of course, Biliku the spider goddess didn’t let things go QUITE so easily. She demanded a way to charge her new toy so it would continue working. When Gil didn’t have any ideas, she suggested a house out in the woods that might be able to be electrified again. After some consternation and Biliku rescuing herself from an attacker via a swarm of tiny spiders, they find their way there and Gil gets things working once more. But the old house isn’t all they find there — Akuji stumbles on a pair of ghostly children hidden away in the closet, and promises to keep their uncle Arthur from hurting them again.

Spiders. Why did it have to be spiders?
So many legs!

The bus is surrounded by strangeness while our heroes wait for the repairman to arrive. Once he does, he’s hustled into the bus with the rest of the passengers so the menace can be taken care of. And it is, in spectacular fashion! Four spiders that dwarf German shepherds fell to fire, shadow and explosion at the hands of the mages, but before they could be properly celebrated by the rescued passengers Gil heard a rustling in the kudzu. Upon investigating, he found a world-weary spider goddess with a famous name, and bought the freedom of his bus for the cost of a cell phone…

And then, the bus broke down.
Mechanical malfunction or SINISTER PLOT?

The current cast met one another. Crisis struck as the bus they were taking back to Haven City broke down, a problem attributed to a faulty axle. This would be only somewhat alarming, save that night is coming, and with it a rustling in the woods…
