Nan stares upward, standing in the cold, still air of the chapel.

The journal is quickly forgotten as more immediate concerns arise.
Nan realizes she and Henry are not alone.

Nan waves nervously to the figure on the balcony. She stays close to Henry and offers a hesitant greeting, explaining she doesn't want a fight.

Nan backs to the double-doors, which lead out into the darkness of the HOTEL COURTYARD.

The figure does not move, and once Nan and Henry have both retreated to a safe distance, Nan hesitantly raises her flashlight to shine on the figure.

The courtyard seems like a terrible idea. We'll probably go there eventually, but I wouldn't go without a plan.

If at all possible, return to the hole you crawled in from. If you have provoked this sketchy black long-snouted person by shining your flashlight in its face, I guess the courtyard's your only choice.

Henry is nowhere to be found. Nan's pockets are empty.

A dark hooded figure sits in the pew, perhaps praying or lost in thought.
No. 438633 ID: ff2b77

Ohh... kay. So, all right, if the "good hotel/bad hotel" theory is perhaps somewhat right, these memory-visions might be something benevolent, trying to communicate with you.

Hey, Lorenzo, if you ever have to sin, can you sin a bit less when you sin? Maybe with a little affability or politeness? Just saying, sinners will always be sinners, just sin with a little nicety about it.

Nan does not have the journal, nor any other items with her.

Nan approaches Lorenzo. He says he didn't even notice her come in. He was focused on praying. And thinking.

What's the date? He's not sure anymore. He only meant to stay for a while, but it feels like the Padre, who is probably around here somewhere, has been stringing him along. He knows he shouldn't question the acts of God and His teachers, but he still has yet to get that blessing.
In a way, it feels like he's trying to keep Lorenzo from leaving.

He pauses, then looks at Nan with a curious expression.
She's not one of the nuns here, is she?
No. 439024 ID: 378452

Tell him you're not a nun, but he's right that there's something strange going on with the Padre and he should listen to his instincts and get out of there. You'll help.

There will be other blessings, and with the Padre in the state he's in I'd be... concerned about what a blessing from him would mean.

Something tells me Lorenzo's not going to listen, though.
No. 439025 ID: 1dde13

To lie is damnation.
No. 439028 ID: 7f2d33

Tell him we're getting a similar feeling, but if he doesn't want to leave he could instead ask the Padre if he's alright. If he really cares about his religion he'd want to make sure his superior is well. We'll be there with him to guide him through this little moral dilemma.
No. 439029 ID: 2fd111

Agreed, especially in this setting.

Tell him that he won't believe the whole story, but is welcome to hear the short version.
Also, even if he decides not to hear you tale, and even if he DOES want to hear it, make sure to mention that there's likely something VERY wrong Father Velasco.
No. 439033 ID: 7653d4

No, no she's not. Tell him it's a long story, but in a way, she feels trapped as well.

Nan says he's correct, she's not a nun.
Lorenzo smiles. He thought not.

The Padre said he needs the help of this humble pilgrim, and as he is on a holy mission of discovery, he can hardly turn down such a request.
He's worried about Father Velasco. His behavior has been... worrying. But Lorenzo can't just abandon him.
He's obligated to stay until the Padre releases him.
No. 439036 ID: 7f2d33

Could we speak with him? Maybe we can help with this mission (and run like hell if he gets hostile).
No. 439037 ID: 1dde13

He must trade his life for Nan's.
No. 439041 ID: e3f578

Tell Lorenzo he is not obligated, to go to another church and perhaps seek forgiveness from another father. You have heard things about this father as well, things that do not bode well. Please, Lorenzo, leave. Leave or his soul will not enter through the gates of heaven. Not through his own fault, but by that of other people. Mercy is the true grace of god, he will not find mercy in this church. It is tainted.
No. 439044 ID: 94b892

How has the Padre been acting recently? Does he seem well?
No. 439045 ID: 378452

What does the Padre want him to do?

(Answer: Carve people up in a dark hotel, apparently.)
No. 439047 ID: 2fd111

Confess to him that you read his journal. Tell him it's contents. If he asks why or how you read it, tell him he wouldn't believe you if you told him AND you don't fully understand the circumstances yourself, but tel him he is free to hear the short version if he'd like. All in all, make sure you leave him with the impression that the is somthing very wrong here, and it may be affecting ,or coming from, Father Valesco.

No. 439059 ID: d53c59

Lorenzo, you are a pilgrim, not a paladin. You can leave if you have good enough cause.

Yes, Lorenzo says. He knows the Padre is... deeply troubled. He has become increasingly reclusive in the short time the pilgrim has been here. He seems preoccupied, and his mind - perhaps even his soul - is not at ease. He's taken a dim view of his own congregation, most especially the savage native people he came here to convert in the first place.
In confidence, he refers to them as vermin.

But that is all the more reason that he, as a servant of God, should stay to ensure things do not stray further from His plan.
No. 439067 ID: 2fd111

I feel he already suspects somthing is wrong, thus confirming it will either convince him to go, thus getting an innocent[?] out of the line of fire, or giving us a powerful ally or informant(even more so if he turns out to be the same 'the pilgrim' we know).

And if he does and falls mad and attacks you Lorenzo? I know you say you'd never let it happen but it's a possibility. Lorenzo isn't Jesus, he shouldn't be trying to help try and take on everyone's sins on.

Tell Lorenzo that you don't want him to get hurt, admittedly for your own selfish reasons, but there are also selfless reasons. You've... been through this before, sort of. A pilgrim that followed a padre into madness and hurt others from the congregation. People have been killed over supposedly innocent selfless acts, you just don't want a repeat of what happened that you've been through. Also, his ears are adorable. Don't lose those really nice ears. Let 'em flop everywhere.

Yes. This is bad, real bad. Know this the content of journal, kim the furnace(I think they were both her btw), and the arms reaching out the furnace ,this almost certainly confirms my theory that The Father (and assuming their the same person The Padre) is burning people alive.

Ask him the date. He didn't come up the idea for the 'fireplace' till June 31st according to the journal.

Lorenzo has no clue what the date is. We may have to investigate ourselves somehow.
No. 439082 ID: d53c59

Whatever you do, don't say you have read his journal. Even if he believes it outright, he'll want to see proof. If he looks for proof, he might get caught. And him getting caught doing something like that could quickly result in becoming that skull-faced pilgrim we know and fear.

But I DO agree with trying to talk to the padre, and with telling Lorenzo that we have seen this kind of thing end in tears. If possible, get him to agree to leave if you ask him to again. Then don't ask him to. If he promises, we might be able to 'release' him just by asking him to leave the hotel. I hope.

I'm not actually sure if we can change the past or not. Remember the elevator? We gave her a screwdriver that may or may not have had any impact at all. But we don't know the mechanics of this event. MAYBE we can change stuff, MAYBE this is only happening in Nan's head, MAYBE its happening in SOMEONE ELSE'S head, possibly at the same time as it is in Nan's, so while we can't change things, we can make them remember stuff that never happened. If we could leave hints for ourselves in the future, we might be able to piece together just what these 'flashbacks' are. The only ways I can see us doing that are trying to convince the pilgrim to not become a horrible skull monster what eviscerates everyone, or carving something into a pew or a wall or something, and hopping that the hotel kept those walls or pews or whatever.

My only problem with the "Tell Lorenzo to do something about the Padre" plan is that, for all we know, him trying to stop the Padre is what causes Lorenzo become "The Pilgrim" we all know and fear. Or, Lorenzo trying to leave is the trigger for Padre just fucking up ALL the shit. That said, if this can actually change the past, we need to get Lorenzo out, because without him, there is no Pilgrim. (Unless he's not THE pilgrim and is really just a red herring/exposition guy who happens to be A pilgrim, but that would be silly.) If there's no pilgrim, not only is Anna still alive (maybe, we're not sure how this time-travel-wibbly-wobbily thing works yet), but so is the first guy that Pablo mentioned, who might be able to help us.

Or I'm pulling at straws. Frankly, that seems more likely.

Voting to hug Lorenzo,
Voting to try to convince him to leave. Maybe tell him that the Padre is beyond saving. If he asks how we know, just tell him that we had proof that he was planning something big and that it's too late to interfere in, or something like that. The mission is neither holy, nor is it technically discovering anything. Is it possible for him to get his blessing anywhere else?
No. 439845 ID: cfd2bf

If we look back to the journal entries in the 5th thread the padre mentions that the pilgrim (a traveler but maybe not The Pilgrim(note the capitalization)) is trying to leave, maybe this is a hint that we have been moved to (or are viewing) this point in time from the journal and that we try to convince Lorenzo to get the blessing and leave. causing the padre to become more unstable.
So to keep the timeline (or Nan's mind) from damage i'm voting for just gathering information without giving to much away about our current predicament, however if we can give lorenzo some discrete hints (the kind he wont understand until he becomes The Pilgrim(if Lorenzo becomes him) as some kind of Stitches (from rubyquest) style memory fix.

TL:DR version, don't tell Lorenzo to much, unless you can do it without to much being given away.
No. 439909 ID: 0d2bec

It doesn't matter what you try to say or do, the Pilgrim is already in the hotel. If Nan tries to cause a paradox by getting Lorenzo the heck out of dodge, then that might be the kind of temporal phenomenon that helped curse the hotel in the first place.

The best she can do is serve as a silent observer of the events, not directly interfering in any way. She might unwittingly be the cause of all this mischief in the first place if she keeps interfering with the past in this way!

Nan tries to convince the poor pilgrim that perhaps the local padre has lost his way. That perhaps even a respected man of the cloth might stray from the path.
Maybe he should leave while he can. This is not his responsibility.

But it is, Lorenzo says.
He must do what is demanded of him by God and the church.

He's started building something, you know. Down in the big cellar, under the church. A furnace, maybe. He spoke of it only in passing. But he's building something.
He believes God has a plan. And so too must Father Velasco.

For now, keep directing Henry to the hole and, backing away, remain as calm as hu... goatly possible. If the (suspected) Beast makes any attempt to rush through the door, use your FLIGHT INSTINCT to enter the hole ASAP, preferably with Henry in front of you. Don't use the flashlight either way - you either risk angering the Beast or losing a moment better suited for escape.

I don't like the eyes though. They're closest to being Santiago's, but on the close-up they're not perfectly round and are slanted just a bit. The Beast has different, highly slanted inward eyes and the teeth seemed to be visible if the Sun Room pics are to be trusted. A third party?

I think the tinted lighting is fire-light. The furnace, the fire when we first saw the Padre, and now the candle, I believe all had this tinted lighting. What I assume is moonlight from the window in the chapel seemed to be a bluish, dim light. Artificial light is plain white.

Not sure if the assumed moonlight is relevant in any helpful or harmful way (it certainly didn't stop the Beast), but fire is probably not our friend right now, given the ties to the Padre.

you need to get under the bed. if you have an opportunity to get out it'll be easier to slip out from under the bed unnoticed than to open the cupboard doors, at eye level, and run out - besides, the cupboard is way too obvious.
part of me thinks that maybe there's a secret passage through the cupboard and that would be easier to get out through, but another part of me thinks that an empty cupboard means there is something that the owner of this room regularly removes and then puts back again, meaning there's a high chance that they will open the cupboard to put something away when they get in.

To continue or revise this speculation, maybe there's another guest in the hotel we don't know about, and the Padre needs them for the "9" in the marked passages, and then the Pilgrim for the "10" to round out the ritual.

It's be strange if he was focused so much on Nan because she's the goat necessary for the ritual. The fact that they're animals has never been relevant to the plot of the quests.

Be careful to keep your breathing quiet and even. Don't move if you can help it and be ready to run at a moment's notice. It's best to wait until the Padre is gone - until we've HEARD the door closed - before we even think of making any movements.

I'd say be careful not to stare at him so he doesn't feel himself being watched, but looking away might yield a crucial moment of vulnerability against Naan if he happens to want to open the cabinet for any reason while she's avoiding looking at him.

Just because he's turned towards the cupboard doesn't mean he necessarily is aware there's someone inside. Keep quiet and ready to move if he goes to open the cupboard or, worse, attempts to block it. There's a danger that he might try to trap Naan inside and burn her if he's aware that someone is in there.

When it's time to make a move, aim the pipe for the head then keep running. If Naan strikes first and moves quickly, he won't have time to gather his bearings and make a counter-offensive.

Silence and waiting is our best option rn.
At least until he finds out we're there trough some shadowy means (haha wow I am hilarious) and then we're fucked. So wait until another poster has an amazing idea.

I wonder if the padre has actually started to turn into the eldritch abomination or can't see in the dark like normal people...

I guess the only way we can know that is if we blow off the candle.

And hey is there actually nothing inside the cupboard? Is Nan sure she's safe?

So, check to see if cupboard has anything inside as silently as possible and wait.

Wait if my plot prediction skills are still as sharp as ever he's going to shove his face in the candle.

And if he is going to do that it explains why the hotel was on fire when we met him.
Maybe he's linked to the fire somehow?

My best guess is that it's because there was no electric light when the mutations happened.

If that's the case blow out the candle as soon as possible.

No. 445620 ID: ff024e


I wouldn't run back towards the beast unless we absolutely have to. Padre came in from the door on the left. Since we know that the area leading back into the Chapel is a dead (literally) end, why don't we go out where the Padre came in, instead? At least that way we might have more room to run around and/or find a good hiding spot and/or find a good weapon to defend ourselves with. Our only options available if we run back to the beast are A) Go out the tiny hole Henry escaped through (which would be nearly impossible), or B) Go through the courtyard, and we're not even sure we can get OUT of the courtyard.

I vote wait a little bit for the Padre to leave and then go out the door on the left, unless we just want to bust out of that closet and run for our lives. Either way: LEFT DOOR LEFT DOOR.

One-Leave the room through the balcony? If a time skip has occurred, then the monster that was there is gone, equaling safe passage. Maybe follow Henry through the crawl hole, and meet up with him?

Two-Check the cupboard. No, really, check inside it, behind it, move it if possible cause the cupboard or the wall it covers may have some dark symbols causing you to imagine the Padre. Or, there could be a passage behind it, and I swear to God, not a Narnia joke.

Three-Leave the room through the door the Padre entered. Before leaving this room, look through the glass window to see what lies ahead, and then plan accordingly.

-Examine the bed, including between the matresses and inside the pillowcase-Padre could be hiding a journal there.

-Examine the Bible cover if it slips on and off. Again, Padre could be hiding something important.

-Examine the cross. Read the plaque if possible, and see if anything hidden behind the plaque or the wood.

Oh, preempting the joke, Yes, look at the Padre's wood, hahaha-Shut up. Seriously, see if you take the plaque; if the edges are sharp enough, then use it as a makeshift knife.

-Turn around and examine the fourth wall.
Not this thread, or TV Tropes, or a picture of Linkara, just the wall where the cupboard leans against. If something is there, examine it.

-Collect the pillow as a possible weapon, as a future suffocator against a sleeping enemy, along with curtains to throw over someone from above as a distraction. Collect the Bible if you can lift it. Collect candle last so not in darkness, and accidentally invoke one of the Fear Mythos.

Thanks to that little outburst, we now have to question whether the Padre was ever there at all, and if he was, if he was still lingering within earshot. There's also the fact that the Beast hasn't broken in during all this time. Stealth, for the moment, has been broken, so we need to first and foremost listen for any other noises and check the window to see if anyone is coming. If there is any sign at all, grab book and candle then bolt as fast as your feet can carry you.

>>446481 has the best plan of action I've heard so far for searching if we can spare the risk (though I will suggest a few tweaks). If it seems like nothing is stirring or immediately coming, then let's take just a few moments for hasty searching.

My vote is to prioritize looking at the scribblings on the wall again and fetching the Bible for later study outside of this room. Check the plaque/hole in the wall (as well as what the black stuff is on the walls), then look to see if there's anything unusual in/around/behind the cupboard.

After that, if it still seems like we're more or less in the clear, check the bed and behind the curtains. Save the candle grabbing for when Nan is leaving, as we don't know what messing with the light source is going to do.

I vote also to scratch bringing the pillow along, as I doubt we'll ever have the chance to come across a sleeping enemy. Plus, there are pillows for this in the other rooms.

No matter what, make sure to keep the pipe on hand at all times during any and all searching because we don't know when something is coming in. Be ready to flee for our lives at any time.
No. 446572 ID: 17a59e

Well, the scribbles are new... Which doesn't confirm anything, does it?

I agree with thoroughly searching the room now the coast is clear.

Also try and find the rat (did it go through the door on the left or is it still in the room?). It's clearly intelligent to a degree (having stayed quiet when Nan said so) so it might be useful. Also rats are adorable.

After that, go back to the balcony. The only thing that blocked the hole Henry crawled through was a pew - he could easily make his way back, trying to find Nan. Even if the room is completely trashed and there's no way for Nan to get down (on that note: bed sheets - they could be tied to the balcony railings and lower herself down to the lower level) or Henry to get up they could communicate. Then perhaps they could both search the door on the left together, which would be much safer.

Hmm, that pillow, is it a straw pillow befitting of a 19th century man... er thing? What I'm trying to ask is; does it have a pillow case? If it does, can Nan take it and either A: Use it a napsack for 2+ more invetory spaces, we do have a full inventory and want to take the candle and Bible still right? Or B: Can Nan tap in to her inner MacGuiver and combine the pillowcase, totem (or first item of weight we come across), and lead pipe to create a deadlier weapon? Other suggestions for filling; the remains of a broken vase/lamp, marbles (or other stuff small but weighty in numbers), clocks , phones , glass(iff the material is strong enough), the severed heads of enemies, foods stuffs, etc... Upon futher thought it could be both be a weapon AND and extension of our inventory if it's content is strong enough to withstand swinging and bashing.
No. 446871 ID: 2fd111

Use the pen as a bookmark for the padre's journal. This will free up one space in the inventory for you to pick up the bible. Use the check as a bookmark for the bible, which frees up the final space for you to put the candle.

That way if you do have to leave a hasty note, everything you need will be in one inventory slot.

But the shadow is different. Seems vaguely Pedro'ish (or perhaps Henrylike), so it might not be a baddy this time.

Still, we can't be sure of that, and the room just presented class-A major mindfuckery on us. If possible, CONDENSE INVENTORY using the method described above and pocket the Bible and Candle, then dive for the cupboard again. If not, just the cupboard will do for now.

No. 447175 ID: 2073cc

Okay, two ways to respond to the door...

A-If the figure has seen you, rush. More accurately, use the lead pipe to smash the glass window and yell "Who are you?" crazily. The surprise of your behavior will throw it off guard, plus breaking the window will allow you to see who it is. If it is a friend, relax guard. If it is a foe, back off, and throw the bible at its head or crotch. Then hold hostage for interrogation.

B-If you have seen the figure first, but it has not seen you, then move out of the candlelight and to the left side of the door, along the wall with the cupboard against it. Wait for figure to move away or enter the room.
If it is a friend, introduce yourself.
If it is a foe, ambush with lead pipe either on top of head or in between legs from behind.

And I know you laugh, but this is a valid tactic. Otherwise, it would not have been so effective on Gamzee, would it? Yeah, thought so.

Let's try and be careful not to act suspicious or antagonistic. Inform Pablo that we saw the Padre and the Beast nearby and to keep his guard up. That will allow Nan to keep wielding the pipe without giving him an excuse to be suspicious, since I have a feeling he's not going to lower his axe any time soon anyway. Not to mention those two entities are still a very real threat right now so discarding weapons might not be a good idea.

After that, ask Pablo what happened since he and Nan were last together and then tell him what's been going on in kind. What we saw in that place with the bleeding Nan painting was terrifying, but that doesn't necessarily mean that he's out to kill us. We also don't know how much of the strange things we see is time travel or illusions (see Kim in the furnace). The longer we can keep things on friendly terms, the better.

maybe take a look at that picture again (and the picture # for that matter)


dude is not all right. in fact, this seems to me like "pablo +3 guests". we had a nightmare about this guy covered in blood. and now it's time to go. if we're going to "forgive" him let's do it over our shoulder while getting the fuck out at max. possible velocity

Now just because the scene is pretty dangerous doesn't mean we can take some initiative instead of running away from everything, especially since we need to know what is going on with Pablo and we might as well give him a chance.

Separating him from those monsters behind him would be a good thing to try if we can.

Back away to the balcony while demanding answers. WHAT DID HE DOOOOOO

Agreed. Back away toward the balcony while trying to figure out if he is still sane or not.

Well, Idon't know whether to run or to drag him in, BUT I do know that if you do drag him in with you, for the love of god, drag him in by his axe arm.

Crap. Whether he's letting those things in or backing INTO them just...

Nan. You have to help him; you have to APOLOGIZE. Explain that you've gone through a lot and he just STARTLED you...But don't let him go this way.

You can ask him what he's so sorry about later. But, if he is letting those things in and has gone crazy than just...Ask him why. Ask him what's happened. There has to be some answers here.
No. 449015 ID: ffd73c

I agree with the idea that these things have been following him, but Nan might want to try and save him anyway. The rats did help him before too, so he might not be beyond salvation. It seems like he was warped by the hotel like Santiago.

If Pablo is within arm's reach, then Nan should grab him (by the weapon arm) and pull him in while giving warning. If he's further back then that then it'd be better (if cruel) to back away while shouting the warning and readying for combat. Part of me wants to suggest apologizing as well if we can fit it in, but at the same time, I have a feeling that the hit was justified frustration on Nan's part so she'd be better off not backing down if that's the case, telling him that whatever he's doing he needs to STOP before the hotel consumes him too. Emphasize that she doesn't want to see that happen to him. She wants them all to leave together.

Tackle Pablo out of the way. If the shadows keep coming in, get up and try to shut the door. If they don't, just lie there for a minute. Between all the scares you've just been through and the adrenaline that's no doubt pumping in your veins, you've spent these last few minutes in perpetual terror. Your body can't take that, not to mention your mind. Take a minute and just let it all out. Cry a little, if it helps, and hold on to Pablo for a bit. He understands what this place can do to people--he shouldn't object while you take a moment or two to get yourself together.

And don't forget: Tackle Pablo. Fastest way to get him to safety.

Why exactly did nan just hit him with the pipe? that didn't seem like the general consensus.

Hold the candle in one hand, pull him in, shut the door. Also apologize for leadpiping his head, and disarm him.

Anonmass has a point. The chaotic result of shining light on things might be the most expedient solution right now to saving Pablo and Nan from the things trying to get in.
No. 449534 ID: ef5406

Not sure if shining the light would be a good thing, actually, considering the last time we tried that was in Henry's room. Shining the light on it just caused weird time/dimensional shenanigans. Still, if it gets bad and there is no escape, then shining the flashlight would be a good last resort.
No. 449662 ID: 850c56

I repeat, don't use the flashlight!!! Instead, we should continue to attack or fend off pablo and try to make a hasty escape, if we can.

There is a rush.
There is a storm.

Things happen very quickly. Nan rushes at Pablo, fearful for his safety but wary of his potential state of mind. She grabs him by the arm that holds the axe, to draw him in and prevent an attack.
He struggles.
They clash.

Nan shouts. Behind you, Pablo.

Pablo shoves Nan back with his foot. Stumbling back, Nan suddenly turns on the flashlight, pointing it at the dark figures behind Pablo.

In an instant, they're gone. A familiar glare starts to fill the room, going white.

But Pablo's eyes widen. He shakes.
Rears back.
"No, Nan!"
No. 449881 ID: 09a2fd

Turn the flashlight off! It seems every time you point it at one of the creatures (or turn on any light near them in general) it instigates the glare.
