The Final Revelation

Session 2 - Les's Notes

Session 2 – 17th May, 2016 (September 1934, a Monday night)
The session began with the dinner on the night the PC arrived
Lost teachers – riding instructress, maintenance man, Mr Davies, Mary Wolsey, the Chaplin Reverend Thomas Pulley, all disappeared on the same night. The called themselves the “Seekers of Truth” (De veritate inquirentes). All went missing/left on the same night but left possessions behind, which. They all went missing in mid-July.
The PC accessed the attic after Mr Webb picked the lock. Reverend Bosworth found some files that the Seekers ordered many items at the school’s expense, items that indicated that they seemed to be interested in an expedition.
Bart and Isaac found boxes of the Seekers that had many of the possessions, except for the sort of things that one might take on an expedition (hiking shoes, a gun, heavy clothing). Mary left a note saying they were going looking for something and that they were leaving everything with Sarah.
In the Sanatorium, Capt. Jack Rolston found two jugs, one with white, milky looking stuff (Milk of Magnesia) and one with brown liquid. The brown one smells like turnips or parsnips (some kind of soup).
Tuesday
In the morning, Capt. Rolston is told that the students all have osteoporosis by the School Nurse, Rebecca Mackey.
Also in the morning the Reverend sees at the horizon what might an aurora.
Bart discovers that his girls have been taught most recently Bavarian creation myths.
Isaac Frost finds out that the wife of the local barman (pub owner) is named Sarah. Sarah used to work at the school as the Secretary of the School. Sarah is also under the impression that the Seekers did a “midnight flit”. Sarah gives to Isaac a choker that belonged to Mary. All the Seekers left items with Sarah. Sarah reports that she was always sick while working at the school and even broke bones more easily (broke her wrist twice). Sarah tells Isaac that the Seekers used to hang around the old school theatre and that she thinks that they may have met in or under it. They talked about going under. Sarah also confirms that the Seeker purchased climbing equipment.
Mark Rooney staffs the Sanatorium that night and confirms that they girls, 8 of them, have some form of osteoporosis, arthritis, low bloody pressure and low heart rates.
The Reverend, Bart and Capt. Rolston went down to the pub. Rolston asked the sailors if they took anyone off the island in July, none did. The Reverend recovers a crucifix and Bart recovers his brother’s whiskey flask.
