Karl kept back so as not to get in the way of Cinder's tracking but kept an eye and ear out for anything that would help them as they headed towards the screaming.

You can find a pathway to the center.

Strapped to a chair with duct tape is Malcom's body. Sans an ear and two fingers. Gorgeous Tom is there holding one of those automatic turkey slicers, laughing maniacally as "Malcom" cries bloody murder. Kathy is chained up nearby.

"Yeah, not so ****ing tough now are ya? You just wait cause we're just getting ****ing started!"

You are handed a phone, Lovecraft picks up.

"Hello? Is that you Malcom? Your friends left directions to where your body can likely be found."

He gives you the address of where the team went.

Karl gestures for Rose to line up a shot while he moves closer Silver knife in hand. He figures Brian will know best how to contribute in his own way.
Stealth.
1d20+5 → [1,5] = (6)
Damn it.
Karl's sneaking attempts are thwarted when he suddenly slips on a disgusting fast food wrapper coated in Grease and rat droppings. The fall and the resulting burst of profanities are somewhat hard to miss.

(Dammit indeed.)

Gorgeous Tom turns to you guys, his left eye twitching.

"Oh! OH! YOU GUYS! YOU GUYS ARE SO ****ING DEAD ITS NOT EVEN FUNNY!"

He lets out a roar, and arches his head back, foam spraying from his mouth as his body begins to twist. Clothes ripping, back twisting, fur growing all over his body as his face elongates and long gnashing fangs come out.

The end result is.... Not all that impressive. Standing before you is a wiry, hairy man with a rats head and a tail. He's actually a foot shorter than he was as a human, and from the looks of it half the weight.

Malcom Hargrove

"Great." Malcom grabbed a pencil and a piece of papers. "We will be there soon." Malcom turned to the frat boys. "Have any of ya'll ever wanted to commit some arson?"

"Isn't that what we just did?" One of them asks.

Brian settles into a firing stance, despite his injuries.

"Run, or die. You're not going to get a better offer. Harm either of them again, and you're finished."

"Okay I've seen a lot of monster transformations in my life, and that is possibly the most pathetic." Karl said as he scrambled to his feet. "I mean seriously, you rank below the Giant Flea, the Halibut man, and the Demonic Duck of some sort I went to school with."

To be fair those three hadn't been all that bad. They'd never tried to kill him at least.

(Against wererats that will be DC 25.

1d20+9=16, -1 and dazed.)

"AH YOU BITCH!" Tom snarls as you shoot him. "Alright, you three wanna fight? I hope you can see in the dark..."

Tom reaches over and bites into a fuse box (Fuse box count: 2), causing it to spark, as the lights go out.

"...Because I can!"

(Everyone take a hero point and roll init. As long as its dark Tom has total concealment. So have fun with that.

1d20+5=16

One of the kid knocks back a drink of whiskey.

"**** it lets go!"

Karl quickly turns his flashlight on. "Damn, even with this there's so much darkness for him to hid in. If we go back to back he can't get us from behind."

Unfortunately that would also limit their mobility somewhat but until they had a plan to get the rat bastard playing defensive would help minimize openings for the enemy to exploit.
