Cthulhu Rising


The Bull had a prophetic vision. In it, the runners saw a rift open up over the Atlantic Ocean. They traveled there with a submarine and explored an underwater city. Ryder led them to the center of the city, and they realized it was R’lyeh. Waver astrally perceived Saeletra within the cabin of the submarine, and she told the group that Cthulhu could sense within a one-mile radius of any mention of his name.

Peter bonded with the Deep Resonance. Watcher bonded with Gaia. Ryder tried to kill herself rather than choose, but eventually chose Istasha. The Bull chose Nyarlathotep, and Cthulhu entered the body of Acererak…
