Take a Brainsate
You take a Brainsate.

While waiting for it to kick in, you have a snack.

You clean off the various items you and your friends found at the junkyard, and you inspect them to make sure it's all still functional.

You listen to some music, and take a shower.

You practice with your makeshift polearm.

You think about the house.


House is indestructible. House drinks blood.

One or both witches died in the house.

You don't know who, or how.

One was a shut-in who lived here.

The other was the old librarian.

Marlow's met the librarian; Ezra likely has, too.


"She was, as I recall, a sweet young lady. We discussed the weather, and music, though she was disappointed when I didn't recognize the band on her T-shirt. She was purchasing the second ring for her sister, who had been suffering from depression."


...Her sister.

The witches may have been sisters.



. . .



Cici's taking longer than you expected.

Definitely check in with Cici.

Call Cici and Kate to make sure they're OK; we've seen that the town police views them with hostility.

Edit: Also, make dinner. We still haven't eaten anything since breakfast. Mashed potatoes and hummus salad is easy and good.

Contemplate a camera rig to film our horrible cooking efforts. This is related to filming an arcade game experience.

+1 There are one or more enemies out here in the real-world (besides the usual oppressive authorities and all-consuming corporations). We should make checking-in calls a regular thing.

It's a good idea, for later. Right now we just saw the ladies at breakfast and will be seeing them again today.

Play a bit of Mustachio while we wait, I suppose. Perhaps even record the footage to make a video from it, to post for money later. Even if the work is interrupted by Cici's arrival, it can always be resumed later.

I would say it's a better idea not to play Mustachio because we already played Franklin's Dig-Dug, and we want to see what kinds of powers that gives us. We can start writing out ideas for our video on Dig-Dug, though!

I'm still hoping that we go into the dungeon tonight with Crush Souls powers, I think that's what will best help us to defeat the wall-boss.

Since we're home, maybe make a video about Stardew Valley analogue and rant a bit about "I just found out space gardens exist and have blueprints available on the Internet this is so cool". Also maybe look up those.

Does our house have a backyard? Ideally, with a tree to practice polearm (and other weapon) strikes on?

We know the house doesn't have a backdoor, which seems a bit odd. This screen shows the front door, the bedroom door, and the kitchen door, and the other rooms just have doors back to here (plus a bathroom).

During the day, I floated the idea of double-checking the house for changes, which could have been caused by lighting the candle, so I propose that again (now that we're actually in the house again).

Edit: or any of our other dungeon activities

+1. Definitely check for back yard and door to such, and check out the candle

Don't witch covens usually come in threes?
3rd Jun 2020, 5:18 AM
...we should probably bring that up with Kate and Cici

So there may be a third witch around? Hmm...

Kate and Cici might be well along to becoming witches too?

Maybe bring it up with Marlow? He seems to be the person in town with the most knowledge of supernatural/occult matters. Maybe more the former than the latter, but still.

Plaire should look up SOMNIPLAN on the internet.

I guess call Cici too.
