In the last few days leading up to the meeting with their clients from the local chapter of the “Bother Speed” motorcycle club the Spokane GB decide to get some things done. Woody and Michael make some flyers with the slogan “All the buster stuff you can muster” to try and sell their new load of merchandise that’s takeing over nearly the entire Spokane GBI HQ.
Marty investigates the contents of a couple cars he’s towed that the owners have not claimed, and finds very little of worth other than a terrible lingering fish smell, and a case of beer.
Brian took a pair of ecto goggles and a PKE meter and quite successfully combined the 2 items into one, without corporate being any the wiser.
Francis returned from his fear-of-Marty-or-Master-Mover-or-the-popo-based entrepreneurial attempt to make a Goth porn BBS business to find new employees had been hired in his absence.
After introductions are made and dealt with the team heads off in the Ecto Short Bus and take the long drive over the state line into Idaho to conduct their business. After Packett’s stirring rendition of “The Wheels On The Bus” Marty, the driver, politely asks him to cram a sock in it, much to everyone’s relief. They eventually find the place and are told by Roger Bonneville, the current leader of “Bother Speed” to park somewhere less conspicuous.
After doing so the GB enter the warehouse, which they note smells like cinnamon and frankincense, and begin investigating the building for any signs of paranormal activity without hesitation while Roger explains that they’ve been having some bad luck trying to move this van full of goods (which Marty refers to as Bobbleheads) and need to find out why. This is their third attempt to hand off these Bobbleheads, apparently.
The room has low level PKE energy all around it and as the GB are investigating, another biker shows up to pick up the shipment. Brian’s new PKE ecto goggles begin giving him small electric shocks every few seconds. He mentally notes to correct this problem. Then in quick succession as the GB head up to the rafters, several tires pop, a fire starts in the warehouse’s office from a sparking TV which a biker quickly puts out and a beam falls from the ceiling onto the van’s engine block killing the engine dead. There’s voices coming from somewhere. Woody hears them as he’s discovering the pentagram in the rafters. “Freeze” it says. There’s gunshots, and engine rumbling. It sounds like it’s coming from inside his head. He scrapes away the rubberized material coating on the metal rafters the pentagram is carved in to destroy it and Marty demands he just be allowed to shoot it.
After recovering from being mildly startled the GB turn up an incense burner, and a candle, in addition to the pentagram in the rafters, and a strange mix of spices in oil form on the roof of the van. After interrogating the bikers on if they’d used this van and this location before (they hadn’t), and if they had any enemies (which took the form of the police, and another motorcycle club called the “Collected Souls”) the GB suggest the bikers might have a traitor, and Roger agrees it’s possible, but no-one fesses up despite Packett’s most suave efforts. Francis’ experience with goth chicks tells him this looks like witchcraft.
The team has part of an answer but is stuck for leads. They intend to pay the “Collected Souls” a visit the next day. On their way out they also find a poppet sort of doll thing pinned to the warehouse. Francis identifies it as the style of poppet put up by some voodoo believers meant to help shepard the dead to the other side. The groups takes the long drive home.
Upon arrival inside Woody notices one of the boxes of merchandise inside the reception area. Odd since he made absolutely sure to keep the reception area free of clutter and shoved the boxes everywhere else in the building. He hears a voice from upstairs. There’s no sign of forced entry. The voice is speaking a different language. Oriental? Chinese? He makes sure everyone has equipment and swarms his employees around the bathroom where he heard the voice.
They burst in ready for anything… except a ghost apparently as Marty takes the full brunt of a slime offensive from his invisible attacker mumbling in Chinese. He drops to the ground and is helped up by Francis. The ecto goggles come into play. There is proton fire in the bathroom. A pipe gets hit with enough energy to start spraying water everywhere. Woody orders Francis to go downstairs and turn off the water. The ghost flees through the wall into Woody’s office. Michael stays behind to collect ectoplasm from the wall in a plastic bag. Francis is still getting the water turned off, which he does just after in trying to give chase, Brian slides on some slime into a toilet stall and in trying to get up the pouring waters causes him to fall again head first into the toilet and receive a half-swirly. Woody is first into his office to see that the ghost has ravaged his well organized paperwork and decorating sensibilities.
Woody is furious as he blasts at the ghost just as it goes through the floor. Marty and Brian try to go down the fire pole to the middle floor without sliding all the way down. Not only do they fail, but Marty slimes up the pole with his gooped up hands, making it harder for Woody’s attempt to reach the middle floor by speedy pole.
Woody is unfazed by goo covered poles and manages to jump off onto the center floor without issue. The ghost however narrowly avoids the wrath of the Jewish Ghostbuster’s
magic science lasso moving up trough the ceiling back into the bathrooom, where Packett is still collecting slime. He hears the Chinese and feels the entity fill his being.
