Hey guys... do you notice anything... odd about that girl? Are those fangs I spy?
Nope. Just looks like grass to me.

Converse with nearby person.


You don't know who this person is. You've never really had neighbours - Solton's so out of the way you're surprised that people come through here at all. There's the Professor but - well, he has problems all of his own. You suspect he and your mother live in Solton for the same reason that makes visitors so rare.

Either way, you try to introduce yourself to her. She gives her name as REBECCA MALUS. She's here with her FAT HUSBAND and his OLD HAG MOTHER. Apparently Solton's known for its relative calm and quiet to the world at large. They're looking... well, she points it bluntly. They're looking for a place for Old Hag Mother to die. She nods her head towards the mouth of the river just south of here and say they're checking out the land.

You try to ask more questions but she just grunts and pounds impatiently on her CELLPHONE.

Hey guys... do you notice anything... odd about that girl? Are those fangs I spy?

...there was something strange about that forced smile she gave you. Perhaps it's best to keep an eye out on her.

Examine small animal head on nearby post.

I'm cool with examining the head, though.

Examine tiny Rhydon head.


It's... a small skull. Nailed to a small wooden pillar. It's a superstition thing - Mother thinks it will keep out the bad 'thulhus. You'd always snark that they're all bad. She'd always threaten do nail your head out here as a warning to everything else. You're tempted to snag it, but you know it'd just freak Mother out.

You can't tell what kind of 'thulhu it used to be. Every time you'd ask she'd just mumble something and change the subject. Maybe it used to be one of Father's?

Examine the odd line to the west.


It's just a rough patch of ground. A lot of the area's dug up like this. Either from 'thulhus or people digging for... gods know what.

Read the signs

You think it'd be a good way to get yourself re-acquainted with the town. You know what the one by your house says, though.

"BLACKWOOD RESIDENCE - NO ADMISSION"

Ah, Mother. Always the social butterfly.


This is the ABANDONED HOUSE to the east of yours. You think the Professor used to live here with his family until... something happened. Mother's never said anything and the Professor has never been the most social of people. He lives and sleeps at his Lab now. The house is in a pretty sorry state - you can see one of the windows is broken and the boards covering the lower storey are beginning to rot away. Still sturdy, though.

The sign is too faded to read but you can just make out the letters "WIL_O_ RESI__N_E".


This one simply says "SOLTON - ONE RAY OF SUNSHINE". It's a sign for visitors.


This is the last sign you can find around town. It reads "PROFESSOR WILLOW'S LABORATORY - APPOINTMENTS ONLY". You don't have an appointment but as the only MU-Accredited expert in the area, surely he'd know you're starting your Pokthulhu adventure today.

Right?

SNAG THE SKULL.

YOU WERE EITHER HINTING AT ITS USEFULNESS OR TELLING US TO FUCK OFF.

Am I the only one who thinks that the box in the top-left corner of the downstairs television is suspicious?

Determine own gender.
Knock on lab door.

I say examine it more in-depth once we've talked to the Professor about getting started on our quest.

Talk to old hag and fat husband then go wander around in the grass to the north.

We should speak the professor first.
We don't know what we might encounter on the way to find her.

This must be Rebecca's Fat Husband. You deduce this from the man's girth, approximate age, and the fact he's the only male in town that's not you or the Professor.

You introduce yourself. He doesn't seem much interested in conversation. You enquire about his reasons for visiting Solton. He just snorts and waves the ball of pudge he calls a hand over by the river where his mother stands. He just kinda grunts, says "Mother." and shrugs a little before stopping for breath. You decide not to press the point and he takes this as a sign to pull a chocolate bar out of somewhere.

Talk to old hag


She just kinda... stares at the water. You don't think you saw her move once as you were checking out the signs around town. She's obviously quite frail. You try making conversation but she doesn't respond. As you turn away, however, she does say something. You can barely make it out - her voice sounds like old winds hissing through trees in winter.

"Come from black, return to black. Everything's a reflection. You spend your whole life staring at something staring back. And it doesn't like you. And you don't like it. But you know one day that reflection's gonna swallow you up, and you'll return to the black. Always the black. Return to black. Come from black."

She doesn't say anything else.

Knock on lab door.

We should speak the professor first.
We don't know what we might encounter on the way to find her.

You figured you've waited long enough. It'd be safer to travel to Mother if you went to see the Professor first, anyway. He should be expecting you, anyway.

Should.

You knock on the door.


....no answer. The door's unlocked, though. It swings open with a slight nudge. Maybe he really is expecting you? I mean, why else would the door be ope-

This is probably a horrible idea...
But talk to that thing.
And show no fear.
