The two cheerleaders are intended to be foreshadowing as well as give off a creepy vibe by being normal and yet still almost caricatures. When I pitched the Operation to my players I told them I was going for Enemy of the State meets Stepford Wives.

Also, Atwood is too paranoid to leave his motel room, and the others are too paranoid to meet up with him.

Well, I don't blame you for a dry story, I just got to be fair on a writer I enjoy sometimes. Silly kitties ha-ha. The writing process is a craft and sometimes you got to stop and start again and again. Cheerleaders in fiction are usually either creepy or fetishes materials I have notice? Ha-ha. And I love senses of building paranoia. When people start experiencing mental health symptoms in Cthulhu's Mythos games then... fun and funny who knew?

As long as you're being fair and the criticism is intended to be constructive, by all means, be as harsh as you need to. When I write the Operations, my target audience is my group of players, but when I write up the game sessions in this format, my target audience is different. Each requires a different style.

If my players tell me, "we need more research montages where we stare at chalkboards and do math," I need to find a way to give them that experience in the game. When I go to write up the lack of action, I have to find a way to make math and chalk dust interesting.

Incidentally, while I do a lot of planning in advance, I do welcome requests and suggestions from the people who read these write ups. If readers tell me, "we need more research montages where the character stare at chalkboards and do math," I might try to work that into the game at some point.

Ultimately, I have one story and two audiences, so I have the challenge of presenting the same story two ways.

That, I can most definitely do. All the secrecy and paranoia is just a set up for all the horror and terror these agents can handle. They should get to that point next week. Unless they chicken out.
