Damnation Van. For most, the phrase conjures up images of George Peppard and Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. Given the lack of description in the Encounter Critical rules, I prefer to take the road less traveled. Think about those two words. Damnation. Van. To me, it evokes a cross between the 1977 horror film The Car (starring James Brolin and Ronny Cox) and the Scooby Gang's Mystery Machine. All of the powers of Hell, perhaps possessed by a demon or devil, merged with the ability to comfortably seat six.
