[IC - SAVANNAH] The Henslowe Mansion

A decade ago, a band of occult investigators battled against the summoning of an ancient and monstrous evil. They failed. Now you must piece together the puzzle and finish what they could not. The stakes are high, and so is the price to pay. Can you do it?

You look outside the house, trying to spot any alligator. The path seems clear for now, and you think you can safely reach the cars. Clarence still holds the shotgun, and he should probably return it to Currothers. Holly is still holding the small metal box with the notebook, the letter, the little metal key and the strange stone.

OOC:   If no-one else has the 'Death Cults' book we found, the Christopher will collect it before we depart.

After a quick stop to the upper floor to take the book and the map, you make a run for the cars, stopping only to leave the shotgun to Currothers.Then it's a quick ride towards the city and the hotel. After a shower and a change of clothes, you find a small italian restaurant, still open despite the late hour. You order your dinner and relax after the tiring day, trying to make sense of all the informations you gathered, and plan your next moves.

The delicious fettucine alfredo fills Holly's stomach and warms her. "I think we've accomplished everything we can in Savannah," she says. "We may want to head back to Boston before proceeding to Los Angeles, which is the obvious next step. We'll be able to report what we've learned, and we can also look into finding someone to try to break that code on those letters. Douglas Henslowe didn't create it, so it must have been Walter Winston who wrote it. Since we can't ask him, that makes it difficult to discover what it means."

Ian asks for a capelletti in brodo and garlic bread to soothe his body and mind. "About the code... It strikes me as odd that Henslowe claims to know nothing about any code in his letters. Assuming he's telling the truth, and I believe he is, then what? Was Winston leaving a message for his daughter, or anyone thinking about following his steps? Was it just paranoia?"

He takes a couple of comforting spoonfuls of his soup and continues "Anyway, do you think we need to get back to Boston? We have much more questions then answers right now. Maybe Father Flanagan can update Janet by telephone."

Christopher Fontana

Glad of a change of clothes and the chance to dry off Christopher happily tucks into his dinner; reflecting on the days events with the others.

"I didn't pack for an extended trip, heading back home would be good as far as I am concerned." He says, mindful that he has one set of clothes wringing wet, as the others do, plus a blood-stained shirt. "Getting back, to re-supply and to undertake some research would seem to be in order."

...

"And you're right, the 'code' on the letters... most puzzling indeed; Boston would be a likely place to find an expert in codes and ciphers." he says to Ian in reply to his musings.

Clarence is thoughtful between the mouthfuls of pizza, but struggles to come up with anything helpful.

Father Flanagan is quietly eating a serving of fettine alla pizzaiola, cutting one little piece at a time before carrying it slowly to his mouth. He wipes his mouth with a napkin before saying: "I surely can telephone to Janet, if we wish to directly go to Los Angeles. But I think it could be better to head back and prepare better before heading east. It's only a few hours flight back to Boston, anyway".

"I agree, we should go back to Boston first," says Holly. "You're right, we need to prepare before we go to Los Angeles. The mystery we're investigating has waited thirteen years, it can wait a little longer."

Christopher Fontana

"We have a responsibility to update Mrs. Winston-Rogers on our progress..." he pauses "It's possible that she might not want us to investigate any further, we should consider that possibility."


OOC:   Christopher will get a message to Frank Kearns that they would be returning to Boston the next morning (assuming that's where we'll be heading for).

Christopher will take the opportunity to study the 'Death Cults' book, unless anyone objects.

Spoiler:
OOC:   You are familiar at least by name with the Death Cults book. It exists in two editions: the 1909, grotesque and blasphemous, and the watered down version of 1912. The book you're reading appears to be the latter. The book talks about ritual sacrifices and rituals to communicate with powerful spirits (and other not well specified entities).
