In a world where advanced age unlocks a latent connection to the supernatural, several elderly residents of a small town retirement community band together to form The Shady Pines Amateur Monster Slayers. For Jared Applebaum, slaying is a way to avenge his dead wife, who was killed by demons while working out in their orchards. Warwick Van Hoyt, a little person criminal mastermind who also goes by his street name “El Gordo,” always had a connection to the otherworldly, but abandoned his fae partner in crime in order to escape justice. Malkael, an angel sent by some higher power, poses as innocent human Jane Smith while she plays guardian to Warwick. Drew MacDougal received his first tome of magic by mail at age 55, when the scryers at the AARP detected his budding potential as a wizard. Finally, Greg is some werewolf dude who showed up one day with no memory of his past. When a group of college students goes missing after an unexplained boating accident, the S*P*A*M*S investigate, uncovering the plot of a folkloric nasty that may go deeper and have farther reaching consequences than they imagine. Can they stop the kelpie before it claims another victim?

    Fucking christ I’m high as shit listening to this and I got fucking freaked out and paused at 43 seconds! Should I go on? Could I?

    • Don’t worry, it gets a lot less intense after the cold open sketch ends. Some disturbing imagery to start off with, but I think you should be okay until the veeeeeery end.

        Haha well I can always use some disturbing imagery in my life, cheers!

    Two things about the fuckable table. One, it was really creepy, part
    because I recently watched Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness, and it being 3
    am at the time. Two, what program and effects did you use for the voice
    distortion and effects? I like to make audio files and handouts for my
    online Delta Green games, and I’d love to use it.

    • I use Audacity to edit our cold opens because it’s free and has a number of useful features. The weird background hum and static were made using Audacity’s noise and tone generators, and the weird distortion effects I created by applying a filter or two, though I forget specifically which ones. I just played around with it until it sounded the way I wanted it to.
