It was a dark and stormy night.

Upon a hill sits a decaying old mansion. The flash of lightning from the rolling storm clouds briefly illuminates the dead trees and peeling paint. The manor sits quiet, content to slowly rot and crumble under the elements, undisturbed...


...until the high-beams from a 1999 Toyota Camry cut through the darkness. The car zig-zags up the hill, tires rolling over the crumbling driveway until it comes to a stop at the front of the mansion. The headlights and brake lights blink off as the engine silences, three girls emerging from the vehicle. The one in plaid and shorts approaches the door in the cool evening, producing a house key from her pocket as she slides it into the lock and opens the large front door. The girls step inside...

Checking for hidden passages is SOP for haunted house investigation. If we can reach the chandelier, Carmine can lift Melody up to investigate!

If we want to make contact, maybe the ghosts will be drawn to the girl who shares their "bountiful spiritual assets"?

Jessica: "Mel, any chance that chandelier can reveal a secret passage?"

Melody looks up.

Melody: "Nope. It might collapse on us if we pull it, though."

Jessica: "Damn. Oh well. Let's hit the next room, split up, and look for clues!"

The trio walk into the adjacent room. It is very dark. The faint outline of dusty furniture and cobwebs is the only thing that can be seen.

Jessica: "Wait, what kind of room is this? Isn't there supposed to be a mezzanine type of area after the entry way? Like a sweeping staircase that leads to all floors?"

Melody: "I think Kurt Schwartzenberg was better at making lingerie than he was at designing mansions."

Carmine: "I really hope there are some Clue-style secret passages here."

The girls split up, each heading to a different part of the room.

Squinting through the dark, Jessica spies a paper on the dusty old table. Leaning in, she can barely make out the text in the dark:

--OCTOBER 30th!--
THE GREATEST UNDERGARMENT INVENTED!
You are invited to an EXCLUSIVE unveiling of Kurt Schwartzenberg's greatest invention: the Schwartzenberg Support Surprise! An undergarment that will revolutionize how women carry themselves! Increased comfort! A life of luxury, free from the crushing pain of normal shapewear!

The rest are address details, showing the reader how to get to the mansion. It appears to be an invitiation.

Melody takes pictures of the various parts of the room with her phone.

Carmine goes through several books on the end shelf until spying the bloody writing, and becomes unnerved.

Suddenly, a vague echoey noise reverberates throughout the room...

"Lllleeeeeeeaaaaaaavvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeee."

Melody spins around and hits 'record' on her phone.

Melody: "This is it! Actual paranormal activity!"

The low, echoey voice sounds again.

"Lllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaavvvvvvvvvvvveeeee."

Jessica speaks up.

Jessica: "Mr. Schwartzenberg! Is that you? We're here to help you! We want to help you move on to the afterlife!"

Suddenly, a faint blue glow surrounds the table in the middle of the room, along with the plastic plant and adjacent chair. They start to slowly float above the ground, stopping in midair before they start to violently vibrate. The voice sounds again.

"Nnnnnooooo ooonnneeee caaaaannnn hhhheeelllppp meeee."

The echoey voice suddenly becomes louder, a faint vibration runs through the floor like the bass being turned up.

"Nnnnnooooowwwwww LLLLEEEEEAAAAAAVVVVVVEEEEE."

Carmine: "It sounds pissed!"

Jessica: "But-but wait! We want to talk to you about stuff!"

Melody: "Yes, like how to help you!"

Carmine: "And if you have any more of that fancy lingerie lying around."

The voice becomes an echoing, raspy hiss as it fills the room. The floating chair and table suddenly begin to pick up speed as they move towards the girls.

Jessica: "RUN!"

The three girls dart towards the leftmost door. Carmine reaches it first, being the most athletic, but finds it locked. Desperate, she begins to kick it down with heavy high-kicks. The door frame begins to groan and crack as the hinges and deadbolt being to loosen and fall apart.

Jessica: "HURRY!"

The table and chair begin to break apart into smaller pieces that rain down on the trio. Chair legs, table legs, chunks of wood all turn into missiles that smash into the areas around the frantic ladies. Melody barely dodges a table leg.

With one final swift kick, Carmine breaks open the door, hanging on by only a rusty hinge. Carmine and Melody sprint through, Jessica ducking under a chair leg that smashes against the wall.

Unfortunately, Jessica is hit right in the head with a chunk of table, knocking her off her feet and right onto her face. She slides through the doorway right as another chair leg rakes across her back, tearing at her shirt and shorts. Carmine slams the door shut as Jessica rolls through, the sound of broken wooden furniture colliding against the old entryway.

The sound of angry wood chunks stops. The house is silent again.

Carmine: "Well THAT was harrowing."

Melody: "This ghost is in a lot of turmoil if it can lift objects and throw them."

Jessica lifts herself from the floor.

Jessica: "Ow ow ow ow ow ow ow ow!"

Melody: "Good lord, Jessica! Are you OK?!"

Carmine scans the dark room while Melody attends to Jessica.

Carmine: "So wait, is THIS the entryway? Did we originally come in through a side entrance? I'm so confused."

As Jessica massages the tender spot on her head, Melody spies a crimson stain trailing down the bottom staircase. She walks up the marble stairs to the gruesome spot.

Melody: "Got a bloodstain here! Might be a clue!"

Jessica: "Gross. How old is it?"

Melody touches the tip of a stain with her shoe.

Melody: "Very old. It's been here a while."

Carmine: "Think it might have been from one of the Schwartzenbergs?"

Melody: "A definite possibility. There's enough blood here to indicate a fatal wound might have been suffered, if the rest was soaked into the clothes of the victim."

Jessica: "Could it have been Kurt?"

Melody: "Hard to say. If it was, you'd think he'd haunt this room instead of the other one."

Carmine: "Hey yeah, why isn't the ghost from the other room harassing us in here?"

Jessica: "Ghosts are attached to certain locations and/or objects! Their trauma is what binds them to our world!"

Carmine "Where did you read THAT?"

Jessica: "A... website. We need to look for more clues. There seems to be 3 exits to this room that we can take. Should we split up?"

Melody: "Never split the party! My D&D games have taught me that."

Carmine: "Nerd."

Jessica looks behind the stairs. It's hard to tell in the darkness, but it seems like nothing is there.

Jessica: "Let's check the upstairs rooms for leads!"

The trio march up the stairs, avoiding the blood. They head to the rightmost room.

Jessica: "I've got a good feeling about this room!"

Melody: "Hopefully it will be safer than downstairs."

Carmine: "Just give me a chance to punch a ghost. I can make it happen."

Melody: "Doubtful, as ghosts are spectral entities that defy physical laws with their-"

The three girls open the door to arrive in a dark bedroom. It smells vaguely of old perfume and mildew.

Jessica: "This must be one of the daughter's bedrooms!"

Jessica goes over to the nightstand. Carmine heads over to the dresser. Melody investigates the vanity.

Carmine opens some drawers. She doesn't find much other than scattered mid-1970's era women's clothes, consisting of t-shirts, jeans, dress shirts, skirts, socks, and some underwear. Not much else of interest.

Melody tries to open some of the vanity drawers. After jiggling several handles, she discovers that most are locked. The few that are not locked are empty save for a nearly empty stick of lip balm and some costume jewelry.

Melody wonders if there's a key nearby...

Jessica checks the nightstand. The top two drawers have nothing in them except dust and a dried out ballpoint pen. The third drawer has a book, with "Diary" written on the cover in a gold embossed font.

Jessica: "Jackpot! Let's check the last entry..."

Jessica grabs it and flips to the last written page.

Jessica flips to the first entry. It's nothing but teenage angst poems.

Carmine: "Hey what's the bookmark holding?"

Jessica flips to the bookmarked page; it's just blank pages towards the back.

Jessica: "Mom is the big lead! We should find her room and check for more clues."

Meanwhile, Melody looks around for the key to the vanity. She checks under the rug, and much to her pleasant surprise she finds a small square key.

Jessica: "Think it could be invisible ink? That lemon juice trick?"

Carmine: "Got a blacklight?"

Jessica: "No..."

Carmine: "Maybe we should check under the rest of the furniture."

Meanwhile, Melody runs up to the vanity with the key. She starts unlocking the locked drawers. The first she unlocks contains nothing.

The second one, nothing.

The third drawer, though, contains a stack of papers.

Melody: "Guys! I unlocked a drawer in the vanity!"

Jessica: "Ooooo! Nice!"

Suddenly, the papers begin to emit an ethereal glow...

The entity flies around the room in circles before coming to rest in the middle of the girls, undulating slowly as it hovers inches above the floor.

Melody: "Dang it! I liked this skirt!"

Carmine: "Kind of expected it to be more human-shaped."

Jessica: "A clue! The shapewear the mom was wearing somehow exploded and killed her and the siblings! Or at least one of them!"

Meanwhile, Melody scans the documents. They seem to be erotic fan-fiction of 1973's American Graffiti. Many pages are devoted to Ron Howard's character making out with a nubile yet shy and reserved girl in the backseat of a 1958 Chevrolet Impala. Melody deduces that it might be a self-insert as she scoops up the pages to... save for later analysis. Yeah, that's it.

The specter fades from view, and it's cry echoes into the room before silence takes over once again.

Carmine: check inside the grandfather clock and the two nightstands by the bed (Is that a mirror on the right nightstand?)

Jessica: check the dresser on the right.

Melody: check the dresser on the left

Jessica: "Carmine, check the nightstands and the grandfather clock. Melody, check the far dresser. I'll check this dresser here."

Carmine: "Check."

Melody: "OK."

The girls head to their respective locations and begin searching. Jessica begins to rifle through the dresser. Many of the drawers are empty, save one that is filled with nothing but blankets, linens, and duvet covers.

Jessica: "I got nothing here."

Melody searches through her assigned dresser drawers. Many of the drawers are empty, save for some dust bunnies. Curiously, there is one drawer that has a lock on it, but seems to be unlocked. It has nothing in it.

Melody: "Same. Nothing to see here."

Carmine examines the nightstands. Aside from an odd lamp, there is nothing. She checks the grandfather clock next. The glass casing holding the pendulum seems to be locked. However, in the dark, Carmine spies a small place with an inscription below the clock:

Oft am I round, though sometimes not.
I can be cloying and cold, yet piquant and hot.
You can put me out for thou to see
But there's only once place I am destined to be.
What am I?


Carmine: "Guys! I have a fuckin' riddle here!"

Boobs. The answer is boobs.

No. 982148 ID: b1b4f3

Actually it's probably not boobs. It's something that can be cold and hot at the same time, which implies it can be spicy or minty.
Round and spicy? Fruit?
Or a tongue? Hmm, yeah. It's a tongue. Tongues are pretty round, but you can flatten them. The riddle could be talking about the perception of cold and hot, so that works too. You can stick out your tongue but it belongs in your mouth.

Based off of previous experiences where the ghosts had damaged Jessica and Melody's outfit, I wonder if this will be a situation where the more we answer the riddle wrong, the more damaged Carmine's clothing will become somehow.

We can go with tongue

It's clearly a magic, temperature changing orb that unlocks the door of legend.

No no, it's a magic candle! They're often round, but wax can be made into different shapes. Being magic, they can be both hot or cold, depending on the colour of the flame. Also being magic, they can produce darkness rather than light. Thus, 'putting it out' would allow you to see. As for where they are destined to be? A candle holder, duh.

Or my more serious answer would be a cookie. It's destined to go you your stomach

The girls gather around the grandfather clock. Melody carefully parses the riddle.

Carmine: "I've never been good at riddles. I usually look at the back of the book for the answers."

Jessica: "I'm kind of the same; if I haven't heard of a riddle before, I can't solve it."

Melody turns to face the girls after a minute of reading.

Melody: "Let's see... it says 'I can be cloying and cold, yet piquant and hot.' Cloying is a word that means excessively sweet or extremely sentimental. Piquant means to be interesting and to be of a savory flavor. Since temperature is referenced to both... maybe the answer is a food?"

Carmine: "But what food has to do with an old clock?"

Jessica and carmine, suggest finding a kitchen and bake a pie

Melody, roll your eyes and set the clock to 3:14

It has to relate to the clock? Then what about breakfast? It can be a nice, rounded meal. Can be either cold or hot. What time would be considered breakfast on the clock then? 8?

Carmine: "Bread?"

Jessica: "Cheese?"

Carmine: "Habanero ice cream!

Jessica: "Breakfast? It's in the morning..."

Melody sighs and turns the clock to 3:14.

There's a soft 'click' as a hatch on the base of the clock opens up.

Melody: "It was pie! But in this case, 'pi' the irrational number, like 3.14159."

Carmine: "Ugh, math."

Jessica: "Same, I never liked math. But let's check out what we got!"

The girls look into the hatch. Inside is a small key.

Jessica: "Looks like one of those dresser keys."

Melody: "Only one drawer on the dresser I checked had a lock, but it was already unlocked."

Jessica: "Hmm."

Try the glass casing for the grandfather clock, or if there's no key, try locking the "unlocked" drawer!
