Dump alien body in woods. Get safety deposit box. Pucas take amulet + doll, stop bothering Father O’Connell. Visit Miller graves and Simon Marshall ghost. Questions
Feb 15th, 9am: Investigators head to The Bank. They attempt to use the key to open the safe deposit box, but are told by Miss Colden that they have to know the box number. They explain that they got the key from Mary, and it is Dr. Miller’s box. Douglas’ charm wins her over, and she tries to help them find the box number by registered name. Unfortunately, there are no boxes assigned to Miller, Seiler, or Nightly. They guess box #12, but it is not rented. The gun-toting man working at the desk next to her comes over to ask if everything is alright, and they successfully set him at ease. They make a final guess of box #19, and it indeed rented to someone – but the records indicate it is 30 years delinquent. Yada-yada; one letter from Easton Bank and a mind-affecting rock later, they acquire the contents of the box which includes Dr. Johan Peter Seiler’s medicine book which contains the “combination” for entering the Witch’s Head rock: 12, 1, 9, 2, 6.
10:30am: The Investigators head to the O’ Doule’s to “see the talking pig”. Luckily, Mrs. Murgel O’ Doule answers the door and begins speaking with Douglas. She pointedly reminds her shotgun-toting husband to be nice, and the whole group (including Timmy, Marienne, and Great Grandmother U’na) head off to the barn. Shortly after entereing, U’na begins acting up, and Mr. O’ Doule has to take her back to the house. Annie talks to the pooka sitting on the pig, explaining that they need their help for Angus. They are at first resistant, but after Angus drops Mr. Loughman’s name, they agree to help. Annie also shows them Gretel, and they all become very sad, asking if they can take her and help her. Yada-yada, the pookas take the necklace off of Angus and take Gretel away, promising to help her. They ask Annie if the investigators can help them, as well. They describe the horrible priest that, upon Elizabeth’s death, took a necklace from Elizabeth’s shop without paying for it. Angus shows them a receipt from Elizabeth’s Book Store and Faith Shoppe showing that he had already paid for it in full; the pookas snatch it and harass Nikoli, asking him to read and re-read portions of the receipt. After many iterations, they finally become satisfied that it is real and they should stop pestering the priest, and give Nikoli a gift:
1:30pm: The Investigators reach a south road just outside of Raubsville that leads to the Raubsville Methodist Episcopal Church and Raubsville Cemetery. At the church they meet Sean O’ Connor, a pitiful drunk being harassed by pookas. Nikoli asks him about Simon, while Angus asks him how long he has been being harassed even though he paid for the necklace, and there is proof, and Wilbur the pig, Timmy, Marienne, U’na, and the others all know this. An invisible pooka responds, and agrees to head back to the barn to confirm this.
2pm: The Investigators enter the Raubsville Cemetery. Nikoli removes his gloves, and is drawn near the center where they find the grave sites of the Seiler family, and Elizabeth Miller and her father. Nikoli wanders off to find Simon’s grave site while the others approach a man working further South. He introduces himself as the caretaker, and offers to take them to “the boys” so they can show them around the graveyard. The boys are cleaning up Mrs. Keepsake’s grave site; wild animals have smelled her and started digging, so the boys are to clean it up and spread cougar urine to dissuade them. They find the boys “taking a break” and Annie and Edison discover that the digging is not wild animals, but more likely a person: there are large boot prints and shovel marks.
2:30pm: Nikoli is lead to the grave site of Simon Marshall. It is a simple 1’ tall tombstone under a large oak in the South East corner. As he reaches out with his mind, he sees a vision of Simon: a young man aged 17-18 with one arm ripped off at the shoulder, with veins, arteries, and tendons dangling and dripping massive amounts of blood. The other hand holds a letter and a discernible object cupped in his hand. He repeats, over and over again, almost as if it is a recording:
Nikoli uses his will to try to speak with the tortured soul: “Tell who? What is it you’re holding?” Simon answers:
Upon which, the apparition dissipates.
