The Hyde Caper - The Night Shift Veterans of the Supernatural Rpg With The Orpheum Lofts By Miguel Ribeiro, Sílvia Clemente, & Joe Coombs For The Wretchexploitation & The Wretched Époque rpg Session Report One

 “All human beings, as we meet them, are commingled out of good and evil: and Edward Hyde, alone, in the ranks of mankind, was pure evil.”

― Robert Louis Stevenson, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

We pick right up from our last Nightshift Veterans of the Supernatural War Wars rpg blog post.  The party was called in by the United Supernatural States organization as a highly dangerous  inmate in the US government's  ultra security wing of Rikers island has escaped. He or they escaped over a year ago & there have been a wide variety of murders all over New York City. 
 Mr. Hyde has escaped confinement and has gone to ground in New York city. The year is Nineteen Seventy Six & a young doctor Dr.Jekyll is making his way through both the New York City  club scene & the New York college medical scene. Mr.Hyde has assumed his disguise of a young dashing twenty something Dr.Jekyll. Jekyll is  making a name for himself among the rich & famous as a top  upcoming doctor. 

The party picked up Hyde's trail on the dock when a band of cat creatures attacked them. Hyde had made in roads over the last year dealing with the city's supernatural underworld. Mr.Hyde has deep ties from his service in WWII in the criminal occult & supernatural circles. And that's when the party came face to face with a Troll Cat - a hulking combination of semi demonic lycanthrope cat creature & troll. These supernaturals are often employed as muscle by packs of smaller demonic werecats. 
No. Appearing: 1-4 AC: 5 Move: 40 ft. Hit Dice: 8 Special: Immune to mundane weapons Camouflage, Regenerate 1d6 points of damage per round , hurl rocks (50/80 ft range), 2 attacks (claws), bear hug XP Value: 960
The party is now in combat  thick & heavy out on the docks with this pack of 1d20 demonic werecats.

The demonic werecats were made using Night Companion: a Sourcebook for Night Shift: Veterans of the Supernatural Wars Meanwhile Mr.Hyde watches with glee from afar after contacting one of his old cronies from the  Orpheum Lofts

Hyde has taken to Seventies New York City nightlife & the underworld like a fish to water. He's been consolidating his power using some of the random tables found in the Wretchploitation rpg. And basically taking out the criminal competition through murder, extoration, strong arm tactics extra. 

So what the Hell is going on here?! Well there's a lot to unpack frankly, but let's get right to it. Back a couple of years ago my players played in the Victorious rpg's first adventure with Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. And they absolutely hated him as an NPC. So over the years he's appeared again & again as an anti hero, villain, etc. leading up to his uses as a loose cannon asset  in World War Two. 

Back in our WWII mini campaign Mr.Hyde proved to be way too dangerous and the PC's had to hunt him down and he was imprisoned. Over the years he's escaped again & again proving himself all of the more evil &  dangerous. 
And now in Sevenity Six he's after becoming a major player in the New York City underworld. 

The party is destined to meet Mr.Hyde once again in an alternative 2022 but who will survive to meet our heroes then?! Stay tuned kids.
