The Devil Rat Massacre
The Devil Rat Massacre was the single deadliest encounter that the team has ever faced, by every possible objective measure of deadliness, occurring when the team’s glass cannons (Ariel and Ahriman) were lured, unsuspecting, into a room in the abandoned Carrion Studios building. Little did they know the horrors that awaited. No sooner had they come inside than a veritable army of stealthy Awakened monsters, A SINGLE ONE OF WHICH would have been enough to overpower and kill an adult human, poured out and nearly devoured them both alive. Fortunately they were saved in the nick of time by a mixture of tactical genius/cowardice (on Ariel’s part) and reliance on the altruism of meat shields (on Ahriman’s part). Nonetheless the event was a deep blow to morale. The team will be haunted by the memories forever, possibly literally if devil rats can have ghost or spirit powers.
Rumours surrounding Carrion Studios’ janitor, Stan Latsky, have become commonplace worldwide since the event. Most reference the fact that his last name kind of sounds like ‘Ratsky’, while others mention the rat-like tail that could well have been hidden within his clothing. All make note of the fact that he lead the team into the room with a deceptive chipper attitude, all while coincidentally staying far away from the action. Regardless, this fiend surely escaped the justice that he deserved.
