Could a cult of cannibals live right next door?

This is Jason Verth, reporting live from Purgatory.

Earlier today, police received several complaints from surrounding residents here in the Glendale Apartments of strange noises coming from one of the units, rented by a factory worker named Charles Fraiser. When the police arrived, what they found was alarming.

Reportedly, all attempts to communicate with the residents were met only with guttural noises and loud banging against the door. What happened next, Police Chief Simon Dolus explains in his press conference.

“Today at approximately 2:25 pm police arrived at the Glendale Apartment complex to investigate strange noises coming from a particular unit. All attempts to communicate with the suspects were unsuccessful, and it was at this time that the officers present chose to proceed into the unit. Our officers were immediately attacked by two suspects, and were shot dead in self defense. Further investigation revealed a deceased individual was also in the unit. No further comment, pending investigation.”

But some residents say that isn’t the whole story — like Aaron Wellick, who happens to live next door to the scene.

“I was like, watchin’ ‘cause I kept hearin’ this loud banging noise over there, like BANG, BANG. I wanted to know what was goin’ on, you know? Then things got real tense for a sec with all the gunshots and all. But what was really freaky was after. Them bags were too small for like, a whole body. Not even like, for a kid. And Mr. Fraiser was a full grown man.”

Other residents also reported sightings of the suspects themselves with what appeared to be blood on their faces — around their mouths in particular.

All attempts to contact Police Chief Dolus for comment were unsuccessful.

Ignus, Day 0234

We arrived in Ignus to pick up supplies for Mortdecai. What he failed to mention was that we were also going to be picking up a person as well as a delivery fee. John was able to talk his way out of the fee.

Kairi, the woman who is now traveling with us, has bright pink hair and is proud to be a psychic. It’s going to be an interesting week.

Boneyard, Day 0218

Upon our approach towards the orbital station I detected a damaged mining vessel with dissipating life support tucked away in the system. The crew was informed and it was decided that we would investigate for survivors.

The ship was a disaster. There was blood and gore everywhere. The former were present and moving around the ship via the air ducks. We were able to stop ourselves from being overwhelmed. In the process of searching the ship we came across a shuttle as well as two power suits which we took on board.

In the spirit of being cautions the Captain stepped to the outside of the ship up to the bridge to get a better idea of what might be in store for us. What he found was a variety of the formers we had come across before. It had long razor claws at the end of it’s fingers. It also noticed the Captain and watched him with interest as he moved away from the window. Once he returned everyone but Joseph who was doing some repairs on the shuttle we had discovered took the elevator to the bridge.

The creature was incredibly fast as well as smarter than any formers we had encountered before. Instead of going for me it focused on the unarmored members of the crew in the bridge. It would have killed the Captain had Nala not been there.

We rushed back to the Kestral with the shuttle and suits and made our way to the orbital station. Once there we took the Captain to the ER. After he settled into a room for recovery Nala informed us that she would be leaving the crew to try and join Glass Tech since she would not be able to conduct any sort of research concerning these creatures on the ship.
