shadows of yoh-sothoth

We were doing the Shadows campaign, specifically The Watchers of Easter Island. We had 5 players and had just gotten to the top of the mountain. when one of the other players decided it would be a good idea to stop the ceremony that was happening by stabbing the "head priest" with a knife in the head. Come to find out, it was a man made of worms. That's when the proverbial poop hit the fan. We had the Magic Spear and the Mask. The Statues awoke and all of us thought that the statues would step on us, so four of us decided to run. that's when the Shantak arrived. the only one who stayed behind, looked at the GM with a smile and said "can i ride it?" we all stopped and the GM said roll. he passed his roll and off he went. the other four were hauling off down the mountain. the first guy passed the first roll and failed the second and fell down the cliff, to forever be cared for by the old shaman on the island. me and one other player were running and she passed every roll. i wasn't so lucky. i failed the first roll with a critical failure. he said i could do one thing as i fell. i asked if i could throw the spear (which never misses its target). he said to roll and i passed. now before i go on, just know that one of the players (the guy with the knife) has a tendency to muck things up for everyone and always tries to betray everyone. he asked what i wanted to throw it at. i said that player. they all looked shocked and started laughing. i hit him in the side and that caused him to fall off the cliff too. our Shantak rider, come to find out, met Azathoth and failed his sanity roll miserably. it was completely epic.
