Ashes

Went back to Marsh House. Needed to salvage anything useful. Much of our things were left behind. No sign of pale men or It when arrived. House reduced mostly to ashes, fire department must have been incredibly slow to respond. Found nothing of use for a while. Roland (In my panic last post, accidentally used his real name. No use hiding it now) found something in the center of the burnt wreck. A large table still standing, clean of all ash and without a single burn mark. On it, were most of our things, likewise unharmed. Four long daggers were sticking out of the center of the table, three of them with blood stains. 

Find myself wondering how Silas actually died. Did the pale man kill him instantly? Did he bleed out on the floor? Did the pale men kill him as we escaped? Did he... Burn to death? Know it doesn't matter. Have to keep looking forward, not back. Just hope he had a quick death. 

Decided not to obscure our movements any longer. Clearly pointless. All precautions have failed to even throw them off. Strange men in dark coats. One of my coworkers mentioned seeing them, as did the hotel manager. They are clearly only ones stalking us aligned with Dumah. Fracture's previous comment confirms this. 

Currently hope to move south a few states. Back to more familiar territory. If this proves problematic, intend to cross border into Canada. Don't especially like Canada, unfortunately. The people are strange, with unpleasant accents. Never understood why people consider french to be romantic language. Sounds like the noises an infant speaks. 

Don't know what to do other than keep moving. Experiments are far too risky and time consuming. Nor am I the person who should be attempting to pull these experiments off. Not that kind of Doctor. 

Last thing that has been on my mind. Those pale men. Have not encountered any other account of them before now. Nothing similar either. Find this extremely concerning. Fear we are dealing with something new... 

Desperately need help. Need a next move.

  1. My apologies, but I have no information on these beings, from what I can tell from your previous posts, these guys are obviously not human. Or they might be human, but along with that, they posses some supernatural talents.

    For now I suggest retreat, but thats what we have been doing all this time wasn't it?

    1. Beings clearly a new phenomena. Between them and It, don't think will have good opportunity to test them. Don't think were human. Seemed... Different. Expressions did not convey emotion, no fear, no pain. Wonder if they are even alive.

  2. I'm sorry I'm just now taking a look at this. I'm sorry about your uncle. I dunno how much good experimenting is going to do on the monster, but I guess it's worth a shot.

    1. Perhaps was worth a shot. No longer. Far too risky. Too little chance of success.

  3. Hmmm... Curiosity grabs me.

    Did you by any chance take one of those daggers?

    1. No. We did not. Touching weapons of clearly supernatural creatures seems unwise.

    1. What if we come around you. Does that mean you burn too?
