Foxglove Manor looks like it will slide off the side of the cliff it is built on and plummet to the sea some 300feet below. Covered in diseased mold and wisteria vines, hardly any light can make it through the grimy windows. Inside the manor was once decorated as a hunting lodge. Now it is haunted.
Tashi was almost strangled to death by a red scarf, I was swept into a waltz, and Sue saw some 'Parents' arguing.
Just past the atrium on the ground floor, is a large rug covering mold in a spiral pattern. Hanging on the wall next to it is a shrunken monkey head with a bell rope dangling from its mouth.
On the second floor of Foxglove Manor (where Sue saw the ghosts), Dräüg surprises us while in the 'music room'. We move to the NE bedroom to find it covered in thick green/blue/black mold. When Sue opened the door, it disintegrated, leaving the knob in her hand. She handed it to Posh.
Upon stepping into the room, Vielyn tried to claw his face. We restrain him and he immediately calmed. He said that he saw boils and sores on himself and had an overwhelming urge to claw it off. The possession left as we restrained him.
The bathroom floor is totally rotten and we collapse it so as to not have a surprise collapse later.
In the NW room we heard a woman's voice shriek- “What do you get up to in the damp below?!” The whole room had been purposefully destroyed. The only thing left untouched was a portrait that had been turned around to face the wall. When Posh and Dräüg turned it around, I was overtaken by a rage against females. Sue pried me off Tashi (poor thing) before I could do any damage to her. After a few minutes, I recover.
Just south of this room, we find a stair leading up.
On the third floor of Foxglove Manor, we find a set of double doors that lead to a cobweb laden portrait gallery. When Vielyn collects the cobwebs, the room goes cold and the paintings morph to show what happened to their subjects. Ziva Foxglove looks identical to Tashi.
The West bedroom is not a dilapidated as the rest of the house. Posh felt as if he should go to the desk and slit his own throat with a dagger, but declines. The desk in question has a large splinter of wood instead of a dagger resting next to a blood stain.
Note- Aldern's father's portrait showed that he died from having his throat slit
In the attic, the first door lead to a recently damaged workroom. The ceiling is in bad shape with sky visible. Repairs are seen as recent as last year. There are pots set out to catch leaks, placed in the past month. The second door lead to a room stacked high with furniture. The third door showed a store room filled with now fragile linens. The fourth door was a room filled with boxes and crates of dishes and the like. The fifth door was a room with one crate of rope and a bunch of painting supplies. The sixth door lead to a bedroom containing a bed, a night stand, and a trunk with butler livery in it.
At this point of our explorations we heard a scream of pain coming from the NE area of the attic.
The seventh door lead to a small room containing a desk and chair. There were two windows, one broken out, and a telescope on its side near the desk. Looking up we saw a trapdoor in the ceiling that had been tied shut with rope.
At the eighth room (location of the scream), we heard an other scream. The door had a difficult lock which I picked. We opened the door to discover the room is very cold and damp. A few crates were set against the North wall and a full sized mirror leaned against the chimney flue to the south.
As we moved into the room, we heard a woman sobbing. When I moved to the crates, the sound stopped; then drifted to the mirror. When a stick poked the mirror, an apparition yelled " Aldern, I can smell your fear! " and quickly moved out the door and back down the hallway (South).
It led us down the stairs, to the first floor into the basement, through a kitchen area, down another set of steps into a set of natural caverns, through these to open a door to another cavern.
We found Aldern sitting in the middle of the room. He greeted Sue, Tashi gave him pause and he cringed away from her. He pleaded for us to save him. As he told us about The Hurter and The Lord, he turned into a ghoul.
The lady apparition attacked him and did a little damage before he destroyed her. Aldern smelled like rotten meat.
We found a letter in the cavern with Aldern.
You have served us quite well.
Wanton of Nature's Pagan forms"
We took a bound Aldern, the portrait of Aisha, the broken filactry, and the razor. As we left, we left oil all over the house, caverns, etc. And set fire to it all.
Note: The fungus in the cavern was an undead fungus. (see the research for its name.) Also, "She" is Zennisha, Aldern met her in Magnimar. She is the person who got Aldern to work a spell that made him into a Ghoul.
