[Adventure] Dog eats dog - Monster of the week

This is the second mystery I wrote for Monster of the Week. I used it for a demo that turned out to be a campaign (yay!) Hope you enjoy it. BTW, comments are welcome!

Dog eats Dog - A Monster of the Week Mystery



Concept
In Fredricksburg, Texas a chupacabra, used to feed on livestock, is forced to change his habits. He’s getting sick feeding on cows pumped with steroids by a ruthless vetherinarian. 

Hook
Michelle Hedges (20) was attacked while walking home, by night. Someone pushed her to the ground, bite her and paralysed her. She thinks that was a vampire attack.

When you get bit by the Chupacabra roll +cool.
