Music From a Darkened Room

The year is 1999. A group of agents with the FBI quickly discover a routine case is anything but. Thrust into a world that's as incomprehensible as it is deadly, can this team hope to hold back the darkness?

The first two mirrors shatter when hit, the glass breaking easily and crumbling at the touch. Chaz recalls he had tried to break the mirror out in the foyer earlier, but it had proven impossible. Apparently the axe was able to get through the house's defenses.

The sound in the bathroom abruptly stops when the first mirror is struck, and things go deathly silent. Yarrow moans in pain, his thigh bleeding.

OOC:   A successful medicine roll restores 1d4, so you can go ahead and roll for both Vanessa and Yarrow to see how much they get back.

Also, the POW roll in this case is only for Nik.

Spoiler:
Nik feels a wave of nausea hit him, but it passes almost as soon as it appears, and he seems fine.


Vanessa deftly patches up both herself and Dr. Yarrow. She manages to almost completely heal the professor's wound, and it's unlikely he'll require further medical attention, he looks at her in gratitude. "Much appreciated, Agent Marchand. " I remember seeing a woman in the mirror. I felt drawn to her and then everything went black. I believe this to be a malicious entity. "

Even her own wound is stabilized, though taking a breath still leaves a deep ache within her; she probably will require a visit to a doctor at some point to make sure she avoided extensive internal damage. The axe wound had been significant, and she suspects without her vest she'd be dead.

OOC:   Does Chaz want to keep attacking the mirrors? 8 remain.

"Any time," says Vanessa. "I'll still need to see a doctor once this is all over. So will you for that matter. We'll just chalk it up to an 'axe-cident.'" Fortunately she doesn't laugh at her own jokes, or she might have literally split her sides all over again. "She put a different axe in your hand through the mirror, and you cut me open with it when I tried to disarm you. When Chaz struck you with his axe, that broke the spell. The woman you saw was probably the same woman who pulled me into the mirror. If it's not Isabelle, maybe it's that witch. How can we contact Isabelle without going through the evil spirit?"

Yarrow looks grave. " We need to be careful. I don't know who I saw, but she was full of malevolence. They may very well be the central manifestation we are dealing with, with the others just being distractions."

Chaz shatters two more mirrors into a thousand pieces, leaving only six behind. Already the room seems a bit less disorienting.

Spoiler:
It suddenly occurs to Vanessa that Agent Donnelley was right to be suspicious of the axe. It had been placed in the green box for them to discover. Chaz destroying the mirrors would be a disaster and release whatever force had been tormenting the Spooner house all these years. It had been bound behind the mirrors in that strange cold and empty world she had briefly been a prisoner of; the FBI agent realizes that if Chaz breaks all of the mirrors the binding will fall and they will unleash this great evil out into the world. Who knew how many people would suffer then?

One thought overrides all others. She needs to stop him- by any means necessary.

OOC:   Vanessa now firmly believes that Chaz breaking all the mirrors is an exceedingly bad idea and is convinced it will doom them all. She knows the axe is a tool of the house's evil, and dares not to touch it. She must try and convince Chaz to stop smashing the mirrors at once and get rid of the axe. If words fail to sway him, she will shoot him; to kill, if necessary. She is convinced of her logic and nothing will sway her from it.

Your roll was good, but sadly it was an opposed roll, and the house rolled very, very well.

Nik feels suddenly overcome with nausea, but he crouches down and takes several deep breaths, and begins to feel better.

Charley!” he barks. His throat feels raw but he has gained a new confidence. Maybe they can get out of here!

“Don’t stop!” he shouts.

"Wait, don't do it!" cries Vanessa. "It's a trap! Don't you think it was just a little too convenient that we found that axe in the green box? Donnelly was right to be wary of it. Right now the evil is bound to the house, but if you destroy the rest of those mirrors, that will break the binding! The evil will be free to escape into the world, and we'll never contain it! That axe is part of the evil, and we have to get rid of it!"

"How do you know this, Vanessa?" he asks.

"I figured it out," says Vanessa. "Think about it, Nik. That's why Donnelly wrote 'Axe makes no sense.' How did he even get it? He must have found it here in the house. This whole time, the house has been playing us. It wanted us to bring the axe back here, to free the evil within it! Donnelly took it away and locked it up to prevent that from happening."

Nik thinks for a moment.

"It's possible, isn't it? Anyway, we need to get you both some medical attention. Let's get out of here for now."

"I'll be fine," says Dr. Yarrow. "Agent Marchand here did a fine job of patching me up. I would like to get out of these cuffs, however." As the agents debate the meaning of the axe and the symbols engraved upon it, he remains silent.

Spoiler:
Chaz can give me an idea roll*5 if he likes.
