Here is the log for the mission that unfolded based upon the found journal and interviews conducted:

5 investigators very chipper and delightful prepared for the mission ahead of them at the P.I. office on Jonathan street. Pre-missions provisions were handed out by Dead Bride and gobbled down. The Day Star loomed above the investigators as a cheerful festival happened near the launch pad. The lead investigator Civitron prepared his party and prayed that someone would come back sane to tell the New Bedford populace of what they discovered in Providence.

Mile 15, late start but everyone still sane. Some elder ones threw some small but manageable monsters at us(hills). We saw one space weeble, and surprisingly few cups.

Mile 23, the monsters look large from afar and scary. It really stains our sanity but we some how over power them each time. There were done great views but this could be an illusion

Spirits were still high but they did not know what was ahead for them.

We seem to be stuck in some sort of time dilation. We passed a frozen metal insect. Civitron had succumbed to a monster

32 miles in, ice cream stop

The lead investigator brought the party for some ice cream molecules after he had a terrifying bout with a monster that was stowed away inside of a can that was strapped to his ship. He survived but he was marked, and highly visible to other monsters that were to come.

Milk: that's not from me, that's not for me - Civitron

The elder ones really don't want us coming this way. Our sanity is stretching thin, I think one of us is completely mad and he is the one leading the group!

The reality started to set into the party's minds. The fear growing and the mistrust of their leader brewing. They knew the day star would only hold back the Elder Ones' full power for only so long.

Mile 47: almost there, our mad leader is putting strain on the other investigators. I wonder what we will encounter when we arrive, I can only hope that it won't devour us

It takes a sane party to keep a mad leader in line. Even with a mad leader, the party still followed him faithfully, looking out for the dangers to come.

Mile somewhere over the half way point in our trip. The sky turns blood red as the mad man's butt sinks into his craft, bending and creaking underneath him.

Quartermaster Threespeed was called to make an assessment and decision on what to do. A twiddle there and a fiddle here, and the party was off towards Providence again.

As the full moon rises, we stop to find a stake for two purposes. One for protection from the vampires that are flying through the sky and the other to prop Civitron's butt up.

Quartermaster Threespeed shows off his multi-talented skills. The night sky and full moon was looming over the investigators waiting to strike. Action was taken and little bit of fear relieved. But what about the werewolves?

The streets are empty under the full moon. Citizens are huddled in eateries, trying to stuff their faces before their impending doom comes down upon them. The same inspectors leave the mad one with some ice cream while they search for something greasy, and possibly a clue.

The Party made it to their destinations but were they sane enough to complete their mission? It was questionable since their scribe Lordmcfuzz started to write into this journal in third person. Was he possessed?

The investigators visit Brown university where they are currently all mad with joy. People walking around with out a care in the world oblivious to the looming elder ones

Did the scholars not realize what was happening to their city!?!?!?

Mile 75: after finding nothing we have turned back. But it is still cold and dark. I fear the elder ones have found us and we are just leading their doom back to New Bedford. 12 hours has passed, and our sanity us wearing thin.

The Elder Ones were very good at hiding everything that would uncover their plan to the investigators. Scribe Lordmcfuzz started to get paranoid!

89 miles, madness go BOOM!!

A gap in the journal and then this entry, Lordmcfuzz must have lost it. Civitron's ship had a big blow out and Quartermaster Threespeed worked his magic.

7 miles to go, cows mooing in the distance, we feel like just bodies going through the motions. Will we make the final stretch or be devoured

Eeerrr mag gewrd we are alive?

Are they alive, or are they just mad investigators? The investigators made it back but what is left of them? If you see them, proceed with caution, don't succumb to the madness!
