Vigil of the Cursed

A World of Darkness
Introduction

Through many different scenarios and situations you find yourself at Pennsylvania State University. You are there to attend the lecture on Anatomy’s Ghost. It is a lecture about the interested history of where our study of Anatomy started. You may be there as a personal interest. You could be there working. Or you could have simply found yourself attending this event pretty fuzzy on why you are there.

Whatever your reason the lecture is happening very soon. There seems to be a very interesting group attending this lecture. You can see many people from complete opposite styles of life. However that is not the strangest thing. The room you are in, the main theater stage, is very odd. The temperature is much colder than it should be during the fall years. It seems like you have to squint your eyes to see the stage from the lack of light. And you could swear you’ve heard a little girl laugh very quietly somewhere on the empty stage.

Must be just your imagination though. Looks like the lecture is starting….

I am an Honest Puck

Everyone started at the lecture on the history of anatomy at the main stage in Pennsylvania State University. The lecture was about the colorful and intriguing past of the field of anatomy. However the real show was only just beginning. While the lecture was going on everyone in the room was experiencing strange occurrences. The lights seemed to dim more and more as the presenter talked on. The air had a slight nip as if the AC had been turned on while the heat remained off. Lastly people seemed to be hearing what sounded like a little girl giggling now and then. As the lecture came to a middle point everything changed. Suddenly things on stage started to move on their own, the lights were flashing on and off and different intervals, and people thought they saw a reflection of a girl on stage in a mirror. Needless to say everyone left there as fast as they could.

Outside the theater Father Isaac Moore along with Father Jacob Barret began to question everyone on what they had seen. It appeared that they were trying to get a clear picture of the events that had unfolded. They asked each one of you what you had seen and you answered with the best of your ability. Each person seemed to pick up something different that had happened without so much as an explanation from Moore. He also seemed to look at each one of them in a very strange and creepy way. It seemed as though he was looking inside of them almost. Then afterwards each one of you was called back to the theater. Moore and Barret were there and Moore had a job for you. He was offering you payment if you would help research what had happened here and put a stop to whatever it was.

It was settled. With the promise of payment you went off and began to look into the matter at hand. There had to be some sort of explanation to what had just happened. Some rational explanation. Magnets used under the stage, perhaps some strings to pull things along, and someone running the lights to get them to come on and off. The more you looked into it the more it didn’t make sense. Jackson Daniels was able to dig up some information on the theater. It seemed as though a little girl had died there while doing a production. Lacy Mattens was in A Midsummer’s Night Dream playing Puck and had died or committed suicide from hanging off the trap door. Little John Barret went to the theater after hours and stayed there all night. He was there when the trap door opened and closed on it’s own three times during the night. Tala Bloodgood walked Campus and eventually the theater feeling a presence of a young child in the theater and what seemed to be an attempted hijacking of her body.

The weekend provided more information as to what had happened. Lacy was playing Puck and just before her last line in the play they had found her hanged by her costume on the trap door. Most people thought it was suicide but her family did not agree. They thought there was foul play or possibly just an accident. After bring all this information together they all decided to stay the night and see what was going on in he theater at night. On their way there they were attacked by some muggers looking for an easy catch. After some fighting Father Barret was able to convince them to leave them alone because they really didn’t want to mess with them. Gregory Tam treated each person’s wounds and got them in pretty good shape. Each person took a watch. While Bloodgood was on watch suddenly something took over her vocal chords saying “I need to finish”. Everyone woke up at this moment. seconds later Father Barret suddenly went up on stage and began to dance around. Lastly a little girl manifested on stage appearing as Lacy. She said “I must finish”. Both Father’s attempted to start an exorcism and suddenly she compelled Moore to stop and drop his book. Then some quick thinking on Daniel’s part he helped her to finish the line from A Midsummer’s Night Dream. She vanished fulfilling her anchor in this life.

After this the next day Moore called them all together to meet with someone. They meet with Elsa Matthews. She stated that she had a very special opportunity for them with payment. She wanted them to investigate other such phenomenon like this and help to fix and set things straight. She had set up a base of operations in Erie, PA as well as their first case. They were to report there within the week and there would be further instructions.

Yes Sir!

You all arrived at Erie, PA. There Elsa Matthews met you and showed you around the office you all would be working at. There was a reception area as well as an office for each one of you. There you also noticed the last two offices that belonged to the final two members of your team. The first was Jericho Helsing who you have yet to meet, and the belonged to the giant of a man you would meet later. She gave you some facts and objectives about your assignment and went on her way.

The next day you meet with Mark Tieg, the now owner of the mansion, about what had happened and anything he knew. There was little information he could give you that you didn’t already know. After that you set about exploring the house. Jackson Daniels set up his cameras and other equipment in the major rooms of the house as well as the main entry way. Searching through the house reveled very little on the first day. Tala Bloodgood had this six sense that there was a lot of activity here behind the scenes. The one very strange thing about the mansion was the master bedroom. When in there it seemed as though you left the house. It was very still, no noises, and almost an erie feeling of being completely alone.

The next day brought very little activity to the house. You did meet the seventh member of your team though, Malachi Schwartz. The house brought little progress However Tate Reed was able to find a root cellar outside the house. He and Tala smelled blood in there while no one else did. It was a strange place but there was no concrete evidence that something was up. Jackson moved some of his equipment to the cellar to cover that area as well. The day progressed very slowly and not much progress was made.

That morning after reviewing the tapes from the night before showed some activity. Some objects were slightly moved and there was weird whispering noises in the background. There was still no definite proof that anything out of the ordinary was happening. It seemed as though this case might be a bust or that whatever was here was not going to show itself.

The next day brought much more excitement. In the dinning room on the far wall there was writing. On it over and over in many different hand writing styles was written “Yes Sir!”. It was very strange. Also that day Father Jacob Barret tried some exorcisms on the master bedroom. While nothing happened in the room itself around the house there was slight activity. Including in the cellar where candles spontaneously lit and extinguished. Tala then sensed a presence around Jacob and Jackson saw that on the infrared he was colder than everyone else. Malachi was able to find access to the attic where there were piles of stuff. After some detective work they were able to figure out the pattern. It was a Blair-Witch symbol, the same symbol for Patriarch Discoveries. All of a sudden Jacob suddenly pushed over part of the symbol. He didn’t remember doing it claiming he blacked out. Downstairs every object able to move was turned 90 degrees.

In the attic they found an old Civil War uniform as well as an old straw hat. they brought them downstairs and Jacob prepared the fountain by blessing it. They through in the uniform and it began to boil. Also they threw in the hat and it burned up in an instant. Then in the house six ghosts, civil war officers, attacked the party. Tate and Little John Barret tried to use their guns, with no success. Gregory Tam began talking to one of the ghosts and it seemed to be working. Malachi used his newly blessed sword with much progress and Jacob was able to exorcise one of the ghosts. As things seemed to be calming down they took a look at the cameras. In the cellar, during the fight, the candles and lit again and grown large flames. The video then shut off but as it did they could see a face as red as blood with a look of pure hatred on it staring at the camera.

The case continues at the mansion. Just when you thought everything was wrapped up the camera showed yet another disturbance in the cellar. The last image was that of a man with the a face of pure rage. Over the course of four days you began your through investigation of the cellar and what was going on in there. At the beginning of the weekend Jackson Daniels went home for the weekend. The rest of the crew began looking into the cellar and what could possible be going on there.

You started by physically searching the cellar area. You found that no electronic device would work there at all. Also trying to light the candles there they would not light. Tate Reed brought the camera as well as the candles to the main base area within the mansion. Once they were clear of the cellar they worked just fine. Eventually it was decided to put the camera at the entrance to the cellar hoping to catch any movement there. During this time Tala Bloodgood began to take down the wood panels in the cellar to see if there was anything behind them. The only thing you discovered was that the smell of blood was stronger and their was a symbol on the back of the planks. It was the Blair Witch symbol. Also you felt what could only be explained as something passing through you.

After this you began to look into any history that you may have missed the first time around. You found that there were three strange deaths that could be attributed to what is going on in the cellar. The first was that of the general. The general that bought the mansion after the Civil War died in the house of Tuberculous. He always complained of the younger generals and that he still had fight in him. Along with that there was the original owner and builder of the mansion. The farmer died in the mansion of Gangrene after being burned very badly in an accident. The final person you learned about was one of the caretakers. He had been shot on the property and bleed to death while trying to be treated in the mansion.

Getting back to the cellar Daniels came back from the weekend. You decided that somehow you needed to get whatever it was to come out and face you. That way you could work on someway to destroy or rid it from the mansion. Reed decided to start to make the Blair Witch symbol again and as that happened the Vengeful Spirit appeared and attacked you. Little John Barret fired his gun and this time it worked. The bullet that was in the chamber had been blessed with the water from the fountain. Malachi Schwartz continued to use his blessed sword to great effect. Father Jacob Barret tried to exorcise the Spirit but drew a lot of attention. In a last ditch effort the Spirit unleashed a firestorm and everyone took heavy burns. Father Barret fell unconscious bleeding out very badly. Gregory Tam was able to stabilize him for the paramedics to arrive. He is in intensive care right now.

Checking the video feeds the next day they saw activity in the master bedroom. A sudden image of a man in a uniform very similar to the one that was burned in the Holy Water. And as suddenly as it appeared it was gone. Things never seemed to end in this place.

File 1: The Haunted Mansion Pt. 3

The newest development was an added member to their team. Father Barett had died from the massive amount of burns that were suffered at the hands of the vengeful spirit. As a replacement to the team Elsa brought Alexei Romanov.

It seemed as though the final barrier was out of the house for it to be safe and ready to be lived in. However just at that moment something appeared and disappeared in the master bedroom and so did thousands of symbols. Investigating the room Jackson Daniels was able to get some answers about some of them. There were Werewolve, Mage, Vampire, and something called Promethean symbols there. Of course those things didn’t exist right? The symbol on the floor was found out to be made of blood.

Tate Reed decided to take matters into his own hands. He cut his arm and drew the Blair Witch symbol over top this one. At the completion of it he was flung against the wall as his symbol disappeared. Everyone quickly came upstairs to make sure he was okay. Apart from some bruises and a bruised ego he was fine. Throughout this time Gregory Tam was treating the burns of the group making sure they healed as soon as they can so they could get back to being 100%.

After some dedicated research Tala Bloodgood made some good progress in figuring out what was going on. It was pretty obvious to their contacts that this was a spirit and not a ghost. She found a spell through her research that could be used to summon a spirit if they had a name and location. Well with one of those and some options in the name department they began to get ready to do this summoning.

Little John Barret, Malachi Schwartz, Romanov, Tam, Daniels, and Tate helped Bloodgood begin the rituatal. After seven hours of chanting and preparing a spirit appeared inside the circle. It was indeed the spirit of the dead general. He explained that he did not have anchors and that his job was to protect the house. He had been banished to the shadowrealm by a man 80 years prior. However it seemed as though someone had put the symbol under the bed allowing him to not be completely banished and eventually saved by the group at hand. After discussing a bit more they let the spirit go about it’s way.

Back at the office Elsa was waiting for them saying good job on the case and to take some time off. They deserved it after what they had just went through. She would have another case for them in a week or so. With that she walked out and they were left to their break which would be much more eventful than the past couple weeks had been in combination. Everyone’s world was about to change completely….

File 2: Warehouse Warnings Pt 1
These Dry Bones

After a two month hiatus Elsa Matthews called everyone together for a meeting for the next case. When everyone arrived things were just different. No one could quite put their finger on the difference but the air felt different and the atmosphere felt strange. She explained that there had been some rumors surrounding a warehouse here in Erie for many years now. She wanted you all to check it out and either bust it or clear it out.

With that you all headed there to start this new case. The warehouse was an old rundown building from a bygone age. Inside it reminded you of the attic from the mansion. There was stuff from nearly six decades thrown everywhere. Inside there were many shelves that held more junk. The shelves themselves had seen better days as well. Rifling through the stuff showed that there was nothing of value, it was simply all just junk. There was a room at the far end of the warehouse that had once served as an office. Inside there were three desks that had once belonged to supervisors most likely. Inside the desks were worn and ripped papers of shipping manifests and inventory counts. Near the office were two bathrooms. One male and one female. It was quite obvious that neither one had seen use, much less water, in years. Lastly the warehouse had one main entrance, an emergency exit door, as well as two large garage doors for bringing in large items that most likely didn’t even open anymore.

Jackson Daniels began at once setting up his cameras all over the warehouse. It had some on night vision and others on infrared to pick up as much activity as possible. That night everyone went home and came back in the morning. That is, all except Alexei Romanov. He was not there the next morning. Several people called him but no response. Talk about why he wasn’t there abounded. Finally Daniels said it was because he was a vampire. Everyone mainly just shrugged off his words. They came to find some of the junk, stuff that had been tipped out by Tate Reed had been arranged to spell “LEAVE”. Watching the videos Daniels saw it formed out of thin air. Also he watched each person of the group walk past the infarred at some point during the set up. There was something odd. Romanov walked past and was registering around room temperature with slight bursts along what looked like veins. Reed and Tala Bloodgood were both running temperature in the 100’s to 110’s. There was no indication they were sick. Lastly Content Not Found: donald-2’s head seemed to have constant heat throughout it as opposed to everyone else.

That night they did some research into the warehouse. Apparently there had been four major incidents that had happened. The first was a man breaking his leg and sueing another worker for the issue. When they interviewed him they found that although he was still bitter, and the other worker having died, he did not kill him. Next was someone’s father being crushed by a piece of machinery. They talked to his daughter and found that there was apparently something fishy with the shelving but it was attributed to faulty supplies. Next was a son murdered over gang violence. She said that it was unusual behavior for her son and it cost him his life. Lastly was a girl’s no ex-boyfriend dying of an overdose on heroin in the warehouse. She said that he had no history of it and things starting falling apart about a month before he died.

For that night of observation everyone decided to stay the night. Little John Barret climbed up into the ceiling and secured himself there with a rope for a better vantage point. As everyone was beginning to fall asleep they suddenly started to hear noises, whispers, and screaming. It was coming from the center of the warehouse. They began to dig. After awhile they hit skeletons. Tam came over and examined the body. He said it looked as though it were a violent death. Reed was very insistent that he wanted one of the skulls because he found it. Tam made the offhand remark about well why don’t you pee on it. Suddenly Reed transformed into his near human form and took everyone by surprise. As a reaction Tam pulled out a steel rod and held it as a wand pointing at Reed. Lastly Malachi Schwartz sprouted angelic wings along with a halo around his head while drawing his sword. Everyone froze and slowly dropped back down to normal.

At that very instant skeletal hands shut up from the ground and the one they had dug up began to move. It was a free-for-all. Reed went into his battleform and began to bite and shred skeletons. Barret began to fire at them from above hitting hard. Tam waved his wand healing people and turning skeletons into fish and frogs. Schwartz drew his sword and began to hack away at the creatures. Daniels tried to beat the skeletons with his flashlight baton. Romanov used his crossbow then switched to his pistol. After about a minute or two the skeletons lay broken on the ground. During the fight Bloodgood was following leylines from the skeletons leading into the ground. What could this new development mean?

Chains

This case has turned into quite the adventure. We find our group wrapping up the case at the warehouse. They had just faced off against the skeletons who had come up from the ground. On closer examination by Gregory Tam he finds out that the skeletons are a mix of male and female. They have several violence wounds. It is most likely that they were killed during the era of gang violence at the warehouse and buried there to hide the evidence.

Everyone comes back the next day. The skeletons have been cleaned up by Patriarch Discoveries. The cameras show nothing unusual over the course of the night. The only thing is that outside the warehouse is a message in red saying “LEAVE”. After Tate Reed / Happy Camper was able to determine the scent of the red color was actually blood. It was human without any scent of supernatural. Around this time they got a call from Elsa Matthews saying come back to the office to meet their final member of the team. There Elsa introduced AfJoscelin Helsing as the final member of their team. After that everyone was able to get back to the warehouse to continue the investigation.

There at the warehouse Tala Bloodgood could see that the leylines to the skeletons were no longer there. So whatever connection they had to something in the ground it was gone now. The rest of the day nothing new happened. It was very quiet just checking everything. The tests from the testing of the blood on the wall came back. It was not from anyone in their system. It was in fact human.

The next day there had been some poltergeist activity. Some of the cameras had been tipped over. Nothing was broken. They began to check out things around the area. Besides that nothing else was new. At this point Jackson Daniels began to approach Alexei Romanov. From his sleeve he produced a wooden stake. All of a sudden he plunges it into Alexie’s chest. Alexei falls to the ground immediately. He began to drag him off outside. All of a sudden Elsa showed up. After a few words they seemed to exchange a a series of glances before Jackson walks off and away into his office. After that the group drops Alexei into the hole that they had dug.

They waited there that night for anything to happen. They searched around looking for clues. As they did this three ghosts appeared that were the people who had died. They were roaming around. They began to get more red and seemed to notice everyone more often. Tate’s and Tala’s totem came and discovered there was something else below the ground. At that instant a vengeful spirit appeared with chains attached to the other ghosts. A fight ensued where Malachi Schwartz attempted to sever all the chains from the ghosts to the vengeful spirit. After awhile it was everyone versus the vengeful spirit. In the end Little John Barret yelled at the ghost saying no one remembers or cares about it you and it exploded.

The next day went back to the office to find Elsa waiting for them. She told them they had some time off while she found another case. She was looking very ragid like she hadn’t slept in days and was doing lots of activity outside of work or something. Alexei woke up the next day and returned to the office.

Antagonists

After about a month’s time Elsa Matthews called everyone to meet her at the Catholic cemetery in Erie. When they arrived they found that Jackson Daniels was not present and there was someone new with her. His name was Rest. Elsa said that Jackson had taken a promotion within the company and that Rest would be the new addition to their team. She then informed them that there had been some hostile spectral appearances. She wanted them to discover the source and to eliminate any hostile presence.

With that everyone began to investigate the area. Tala Bloodgood looked into the Twilight and saw that there were five graves that were being avoided by the large amount of ghosts roaming the cemetery. When Rest took a look he found that several had physical anchors and that three of them had anchors to graves that were being avoided. He told them this and they began to look into it. They found the five graves belonged to five soldiers from different wars. Captain James Bonsin from the Civil War, Corporal Harold James from WWI, Sergeant Vance Yennings from WWII, Private Frank Simms from Vietnam, and Major William Collins from Afghanistan.

That night they decide to camp out at the cemetery. They have several people take different watches. However they don’t see anything that night. The next day they go back to the office and do some research into the soldiers. They learn lots of information about them. Before they head back to the office they make a stop at Alexei Romanov haven. Tate Reed / Happy Camper is able to to pick the lock. Inside the group puts glitter and confetti all over Alexei. They also set up two traps for when he opens up the door. Then they head to the cemetery. Alexei shows up later with some left over glitter that didn’t come off in the shower. It was a good laugh for everyone.

That night Alexei talked to an own from the area. The owl told him that he had seen some ghosts as well as another image like a ghost but black instead of gray or white. They looked into their contacts and no one knew for sure what it could be. Some ideas was a powerful ghost or a demon. As they set up their camp Gregory Tam was able to heat up the entire area so that in the middle of January everyone was comfortable. As things were sort of just calming down three figures approached the group. One was definitely a vampire, one a werewolf, and one was a mage. The werewolf finally said well let’s do this and turns into full Garou. Fighting ensued immediately. Claws gnashing, teeth barred, magic flying, and crossbow bolts. The vamp was the first to fall to a direct heart shot from Alexei and dropped into Torpor. Next was the werewolf from being decapitated from Malachi Schwartz. Lastly the mage was stabbed entirely through thanks again to Malachi and his newly created two handed sword.

After all was said and done Joscelin Helsing came out from the car not knowing what happened. Tate and Tala then realized that the lunacy had affected her and she had no knowledge of what had happened. Tate then took the lead in tracking their trail back to where they had come from. He eventually ended up at the PD office. There he smelled all the members of the group, Elsa, the three they had fought, and another smell similar to Elsa and Gregory but stronger. Also when he checked on the Loci it was completely drained. Searching the three they had killed they found a note saying “Kill them all, signed Ryu”.

Possess Much?

After the discovery of the smells of the werewolf, mage, and Vampire in the office Tate Reed / Happy Camper smelled another scent. It was similar to Elsa Matthews, Gregory Tam, and the other mage they had fought, but something was different about it. It smelled older, more powerful, and much more malicious. With this news Reed called an office meeting with everyone and invited Elsa. There he confronted her directly about the note and Ryu. She simply told him she had never heard of him before and it was nothing to worry about. This seemed to satisfy Reed and while the others looked on in complete confusion Elsa left.

They continued their investigation at the cemetery. After about a days time of waiting several of the ghosts started to come back. There was still no sign of either possibilities of the ghosts that could be causing the problems here. They decided to go with the summoning spell that Tala Bloodgood “Father’s Herald” had come up with. They started with Sergeant. After the spell was complete he appeared to them. He asked for help and immediately Rest ran and tackled him. Everyone wasn’t sure what to be more open-mouthed about: the fact that he had gotten rid of a ghost or the fact that he had physically interacted with a ghost. Bloodgood was nothing but pissed at him for this and gave him an earful.

They began the spell again for the next name, the private. As they finished something different happened. This time a pillar of smoke collected in the middle of the circle. It condensed and shot out through the entire cemetery. After they recovered from this they looked around. Those who could see saw no ghosts and for Rest he saw no anchors as well. Something interesting had happened and they weren’t sure exactly what that was or if everything had been resolved. They decided that for the night they would get some sleep and check it out the next day.

That night everyone shared in a common dream. They were a soldier in WWI. They found themselves climbing over a trench. There was gunfire and explosions everywhere. The smell and effects of mustard gas pressed on them. Finally they looked up and saw a shell coming for them. It hit them and blew them apart. They were still slightly aware while they felt their blood everywhere and saw different body parts around them. They finally woke up and meet up in a Dennys as soon as they could. They discussed the similar dream and decided that something was definitely still there.

They visited the cemetery again. When they visited the grave of the private there was something unusual. There was a flower there. It was normally white however this one was blood red and dripping. Alexei Romanov took a taste of it. It was definitely blood but had no power to it nor realism. Then all of a sudden five ghosts red as fire appeared. They began to engage them and were doing pretty well. Then Joscelin Helsing felt something take over her body and she turned and took several good shots at Romanov. As the fight went on nearly everyone took a turn getting themselves controlled. Finally through the mouth of Rest it showed itself. It said “How dare you defy me” and then appeared. It was a black figure, human like, that seemed to be bathed in black shadowy flames that licked off it. Its eyes were pure white with no pupils or iris. It possessed many others and no one knew who to attack half the time. Malachi Schwartz began to attack Reed because he thought the ghost was in him and Little John Barret was making use of his blessed bullets to great avail. Finally they brought it down. There seemed to a force pulling them towards it and then threw them all on their backs. Although this was all before it possessed Romanov and made him shoot himself with a crossbow bolt to which Helsing pulled out right away for some reason.

When all was said and done the cemetery felt at peace and there was a good sense of calm. Else informed them the next day they had faced their first specter. There were very powerful ghosts that used manipulation and deceit to operate. They were very good at possessing people and commonly confused with demons. She then told them that they should take some well earned and much needed rest. No pun intended she added looking at Rest.

File 4: When in Rome Pt. 1
Do Not Touch

After a month’s time things had changed around the Erie, PA office for Patriarch Discoveries. First and foremost the office now head a leader. Tala Bloodgood “Father’s Herald” had been promoted to office manager as was now in charge of day to day functions of the office. Also after this amount of time Alexei Romanov had finally woken up from staking himself in the file before. Other than that things remained somewhat normal, as much as they could for this group.

Tyler Hannon, Elsa’s assistant, notified Bloodgood that they needed to have a meeting about the next file. The appointment was scheduled and six of the eight staff showed up. Hannon explained that Joscelin Helsing and Malachi Schwartz were on special assignment in Philadelphia. They would not be joining them on this file. He then went into the briefing on the file for them. They had been hired to check out an exhibit that had come to the Erie museum. It was an exhibit of the Roman Empire and carried with it some artifacts and a very bad reputation.

Every place this exhibit had traveled there had been death in it’s wake. People had gone mission and died around it. There had been poltergeist activity and weird images on cameras. People had reported seeing lifelike scenes of battle that they could only describe as Roman fights. Hannon informed them that they needed to check this out and neutralize this threat so that it could not harm anyone else again. Tate Reed / Happy Camper asked where Elsa Matthews was and Hannon responded with very vague descriptions.

With that everyone headed to the museum to begin the case. They had been given access to the museum at any time during the day and also the cameras in the building. They examined the exhibit and besides some strange feelings there was nothing physical to work with. Romanov took up residents in the camera room since there was no sunlight there and draw the least amount of attention. Everyone took up station around the museum during the night. During the next day they all acted as visitors and looked for any strange activity. Although like in some many cases before them the day brought no ghosts nor excitement.

That night they took up their normal positions, setting sleeping schedules where necessary. Reed began saw a stand tip over and began to hear whispering. He searched for the source but every time he got close it seemed as though the whispers moved somewhere else. He could not decipher what they were saying. It almost sounded like a foreign language. They all decided that it would be a good idea to check this artifacts out the next day.

The next morning they had Romanov talk to the Curator and he convinced him to let them check out the artifacts but under very strict conditions. Romanov also convinced him to let Gregory Tam in the room with Bloodgood when looking at the artifacts. Inside when they held them they felt the power of some sort of source running through them. After this they settle in again to their positions to check out the museum for the third night. During the night things began to float and knock over. There was lots of poltergeist activity. Also they heard full shouts and screams that were definitely in a different language.

Then all of a sudden three vengeful spirits appeared. Battle ensued. Bloodgood was able to bind one of the vengeful spirits which became easy prey to take down. Another one was swiped away by Reed with his claws. The last one was crushed by Rest. During this time Romanov began running towards the artifacts. When everyone else went to find him they found him lying on the ground clutching the gladius. After watching him a while everyone found themselves in a forest. They had no knowledge of how they got there but it didn’t feel weird. They found they were wearing Legion armor and drawn off in the distance. Than Tam opened their eyes and they saw where they really were, a dream.
