17 April 1731
This hunt, this chase, is beginning to consume you.
Some three weeks ago now, you took up an offer being made by family members of the deceased and other interested partys. You have been paid half of 90 silver francs up front for your travel related expenditures. The monetary amount was not all too generous, but individually you have your own motivations for taking this grim task on.
Lightning strikes nearby illuminating your faces as you trudge on through the rain and wind. The traces of this man or beast you have been on the trail of have been sporadic but there. A large muddy footprint here, a rub there. Freshly killed people, most with their throats slashed out lying on roadsides or near their homesteads. The beast seems wasteful and chaotic. Only tending to eat or take choice organs from the bodies, mostly the heart, the liver. Livestock have been killed and eaten in the same fashion.
The remote forested foothills of SW Auvergne
It's been dark now for an hour as you travel on looking for some form of shelter for the night. You are bone weary and hungry. You smell the distinct odor of burning wood in the shifting wind off to the south.
What would you like to do?
