EVENTS:

Eigla opens the door and heads down into the all-consuming darkness. As she delves deeper into the cellar, the stench of blood grows stronger, and the heartbeats louder.

It's close. Very close. She feels like she could touch whatever it is, if she'd walk a few steps further. It doesn't seem to be attacking, or doing much of anything, however. Moisture drips down from the ceiling, making her feel like she's sweating, despite the cold. She senses Rosa by her side.

EVENTS:

Eigla: "Hello?"

No response.


Klimt: "They actually went down there. Peggy, how is your night vision? Did you see anything? We might need to follow with a torch, and fast."

Peggy: "I, I dunno! I saw, something, off the corner of my eye, but we were already backing out! Like hell I'm gonna go down there again!"



Rosa activates her night vision, finding... A giant heart.

She's not sure what else she expected.

The oversized, misshapen organ sits amid a deep pool of dark blood, pulsating rhythmically. The floor underneath it seems to have collapsed, keeping the liquid from spreading to other parts of the cellar. Blood vessels and strange, bone-like structures connect it to the wall, while more blood slowly drips from the ceiling.

Suddenly, a large amount of blood begins seeping from the wall, and its surface slowly opens like a bizarre, oversized sphincter. A stream of body parts falls through it into the pool, which begins sizzling as it dissolves them. The smell is overpowering, and Rosa has to cover her nose not to gag.

A giant heart.
I, think, we might be inside the monster."

EVENTS:

Klimt finds a matchbox in one of the kitchen drawers, and is about to strike one when Eigla walks back out of the basement.

Eigla checks the rest of the house for anything amiss. The upper levels seems quiet enough, but there's... Something, in the ground level, she hadn't noticed before. On one of the bathrooms, the toilet seems to be vibrating, ever so slightly. She opens the seat's lid and sees the bowl is filled with blood, as well as a pulsing artery, and more of the bone-like structures. Checking other drains through the house, most of them seem to also be entangled, though to a lesser degree.

It doesn't make much sense, though. The heart could get some moisture by growing into the pipes, at least until they ran dry, but where are the body parts coming from?

EVENTS:

Rosa knocks on the walls. The manor seems to be made mostly of solid brick, so there aren't many ways to get through the walls other than the pipework. Using her night vision, she makes a mental map of the cellar and realises the heart isn't quite under the manor itself; The wine storage area is quite large, and the blood pool is on its very end. Somewhere... Out in the garden, maybe?
