Despite Graham’s magical mishap, the hunters make haste to capture the villain responsible for the playtime monster before another school day begins.Programme notesThis episode contains loss of agency and a brief description of a recently self-inflicted wound.The town of Sherrydown is twinned with Whispering Pines, the not-so-ordinary summer camp for those hazy days and chilled summer nights. Campers laughing, fireflies glowing, campfires crackling long into the night, and a gaunt, cruel monstrosity forever hiding just out of sight, always asking, “What do you do next?” You can find out more about Whispering Pines and meet some of its eccentric camp counselors in the Sleepaway one-shot on What Am I Rolling? : a twice monthly RPG one-shot podcast.Dramatis personae and other definitionsRenko: A DoOm agent assigned to Sherrydown, furloughed since the office closed.Persephone ‘Percy’ Byron: A Victorian monster hunter and half-sister of Ada Lovelace.
