In the heat of the sudden chaos, the lone werewolf attacks Ethan. Despite a valiant effort and a missed shot with his pistol that could revert the creature to human form, Ethan is pressed against a tree by the powerful beast. A tactical blow to the wolf's nose gives Ethan a moment's reprieve, allowing him to deploy tear gas between them and ready his knife for close combat. The fight is viscous and the wolf is persistent, but Ethan's resilience and precise stabs finally end the assault as he lands a fatal blow. The remaining pack is gone, leaving Ethan with the corpse of the once feral creature, which reverts to human form upon death. Now, Ethan alone must process the aftermath of this harrowing encounter under the silent watch of the moon and trees.

-Zenith's odd encounter(SRTabitha)
It was a day of ordinary coolness, the air holding at an unobtrusive 50 degrees Fahrenheit, when Zenith, one of the local Deputies from the Haven Sheriff’s Department, found herself in the midst of the plaza’s daily rhythm. Known for their role in both school security and community outreach, deputies like Zenith were a common, reassuring presence.
Zenith, caught in a moment of light-heartedness, was emblematic of the integration between the Institute's internal community and the world outside. Her nodding and chuckling represented a bridge between the authority she wielded and the people she served. It was more than a gesture; it was symbolic of the trust and mutual respect afforded to the deputies by the people who frequented the Union. Through her, the day’s mundane moments were marked by a sense of peace and a gentle reminder of the interconnectedness of their lives.
As hours passed and the plaza's vibrant energy persisted, Zenith's presence was a constant, softly underscoring the safety and harmony within the walls of the Union. Her quiet interactions, the subtle nods, and gentle chortles woven through the day, painted a picture of a community held together by more than just physical structures. Instead, it was connected by shared experiences, mutual support, and the unspoken understanding between those serving and those being served.
The story concluded with the end of a typical day at the Union, its daily role as a gateway, a meeting place, and a crossroads unfurling without incident under the vigilant care of deputies like Zenith. Her day was filled with small, meaningful exchanges that, while they may have seemed inconsequential, were the threads that bound the intricate tapestry of campus life. Zenith’s chuckle faded into the evening buzz, a tacit affirmation of the day's peaceful coexistence and the hope for similar days to come.
-The Diary of Prudence Crugott(SRTabitha)
Upon arrival, Owen, haunted by deja vu, fearfully recognizes the corrupted natural landscape from a past nightmare experience. The group descends a hazardous cliff via rope, with Asa boldly leaping and calling upon the wind to ensure his safe landing. Below, they find themselves squeezed into a nook that unveils the entrance to the dreaded facility.
Their entry into the lair is heralded by the violent death of a lab-coated individual, victim to Owen's gun, Asa's archery, and a surprisingly serendipitous shot by Jett, which ricochets and finds its mark in the man's temple. Yet, their act of aggression triggers the facility's alarm system. Amidst the wailing sirens, Asa attempts to free one of the pod-restrained victims only to be met with a gruesome scene—a liquefied human—a haunting result of the vampire's grotesque practices.
As the group navigates through the maze-like corridors of the facility, they stumble upon yet another harrowing sight: a red-headed vampire in the midst of feasting on a young man. In cold command of the situation, the team synergistically unleashes a barrage of lethal projectiles: arrows, bullets, and even Lanie's thrown knife. To their horror, but not surprise, the vampire is too preoccupied with her prey to evade the attacks, resulting in her instantaneous disintegration into ash upon death.
While the group stands alert, the ground trembles beneath them—an ominous sign of the unknown dangers that still lurk within, and possibly beyond, the steely bowels of this vampiric sanctum. They know their mission is far from over, and more bloodshed awaits as they continue to confront the cruel heart of darkness that lies hidden in the depths of the dark forest.
The pivotal moment unfolds as Carmine declares her intention to focus on the security system, prompting a strategic realignment of the team's resources. Harriet, after ensuring her own safety, returns fire from her vantage point, taking out a persistent guard. Sarah launches a barrage at the container, strategically causing damage, while avoiding Harriet's retaliative shots. The tension escalates as Carmine fends off a falling star guard with expert parries, and the security system hacking progresses amid the chaos. The strategic withdrawal of their opponents gives Carmine the opportunity she needs to finalize the upload of a virus that will compromise the warehouse security. In a concluding surge, the Autocratic Moderates Alliance emerges victoriously, a testament to their determination and tactical acumen amidst the apocalyptic threats enveloping the city.
