    "Yeah I've felt it too. We need that book. I have no idea how to get it though."

    "Are you daft? Look at the journal entry. It says there is a translated copy in that house!"

    "I just realized the same thing. The journal said that there was a translation in the farm house! All we need to do is go there, get the translation and figure this out! Lets get out of here!"

    Jon goes around collecting the other members of the party and heads to the car

    "I knew that...I wanted to get at one in here if I could. Because if what this journal says is true, that thing is in there with it. Sorry for keeping things on a need to know basis, pard."

    Sam walks to the car in a foul mood, obviously displeased at the entire proposition.

    Sam grins slightly at the bum, reaching into his long coat and pulling out a flask. He tosses it to Ben, informing him that it's only cheap whiskey, but it's something.

    Dick leaves the pub in a huff and hikes out to the farmhouse's gate where he anticipates the others will be arriving at any moment.

    Soon the car comes roaring up the dirt road to the farm house and stops right infront of Dick

    Ross's Corners consists of a few tired buildings and farms. The prosperity of long farms has long been in decline. No more than forty people live here. A church and combinatino general store, post office, gas station, and milk depot are the community's centers.

    You meet up with Ravage, who informs you that although the citizens are tactiturn, he's managed to find out a couple things.

    "The ankle-biters around reckon it's haunted. Apparently some old sap vanished when he went searching the place at night. All the levies are paid up though, so people must have minded their own beeswax about it for the most part. I don't like it. I don't think we need to go in there. I mean, what's at stake? The old man might have just been mad."

    "You look a bit antsy, Sam. Maybe you need this a bit more than me."

    hands back the flask, but not before taking another quick nip

    "I'm still waiting to see what any of us stand to gain by this proposition. I was promised no monetary compensation for...ghost hunting, or whatever the blast you would call it."

    Sam thankfully accepts the flask back from Ben, drinking long and deep from it.

    "Ok thanks"

    Jon unlocks and opens the door. It opens with a creak, but nothing jumps out to kill any one.

    "Well, looks alright to head in. Lets go.

    With a dark stare and another swig of the bottle, Sam approaches the door with the group, reassuringly resting his hand near his concealed revolver.

    The ancient house sits atop a hill, visible from the road and about a hundred yards east of it. It is of early 18th century saltbox design with a high peaked roof and windows sealed by sagging shutters. The roof is bowed, but all the shingles are intact.

    On lintels over all the doors and windows are carved symbols of a strange nature. Blackstone identifies them as symbols of power used to ward against otherworldly spirits.

    The locked front door opens easily with the key, beckoning inside.

    You notice a recently-dead raccoon laying in the knee-high grass. Turning it over, it's obvious how it died - the animal's breast is stained with clotted blood, and a large hole has been chewed into its chest. Its ribs were gnawed apart and then its heart was neatly eaten out. A fox could have done it, but you have an uneasy feeling after noticing the smooth edges of the wound.

    Jon steps inside and looks around. Thing appear normal if a bit dusty.

    Within, the front room of the house is dirty and long untouched. Dust lies thickly on the mantle and empty shelves, while dead leaves and detritus cover the floor. The wooden floor is badly warped and stained, the result of water leaking through the roof and ceiling. Rot has eaten away at an old couch and matching wing chairs. Perhaps theya re the source of the faint foul odor in the room.

    Sam raises his hand to his face as a sort of feeble deterrent to the smell permeating the room. He whispers, "Alright guys, let's find that book and let's find it fast. I don't like being in here."
