So, after the incredible party at Hawthorne, we eventually had to make our way back to our ship and report in on what had happened. We explained as best we could about “Darkness”, and the loremasters praised us for what we had found out. They pledged they would be following this “Darkness” dude, to see what he might be up to.

In the meantime, we had earned ourselves a week’s leave!! The only stipulation was that each of us consult our own people as to what the local news might be…

Even though we all scattered to do different things after we arrived back in Lanthor, we all heard basically the same thing: evil was afoot in the southern suburb. We heard that a creature of retribution and evil would show up in the graveyard next to the old ruined mansion, on very specific days. Apparently the creature was the spirit of a young nobleman who killed himself there after his lover betrayed him with another. The young nobleman killed his lover and her boyfriend and then drowned himself, and so the spirit was terrified of water. This all happened long ago on Friday the 13th, and sinister activity always peaks there on that night. Coincidentally, tonight was a Friday the 13th…

Reggie decided hanging around to catch the spirit might not be enough, so he hired a couple off the street to make out in the graveyard that night. As they did, the spirit rose up from a mausoleum and slew them both, then hit Reggie for a hideous amount of damage. The rest of us joined the fight and lured the spirit into the ocean water, where Reggie entangled it with seaweed. Just as Ogre lunged forward to dismember it, the spirit sank out of our view into the sea, with a one-fingered salute to all. We realized we had not killed it, but we had driven it away until the next Friday the 13th…
