    After a hard glare at Will's back, Sam follows the group up the stairs, making sure to be the last one in line.

    ((What stairs?))

    Near the entrance to the back room (the second of the two rooms of the house) is a narrow opening in the floor leading to the cellar below. A trap door in the ceiling overhead leads to the attic, the wooden frame surrounding it decorated with the same occult carvings seen over the doors and windows of the house. The back door, slightly ajar, and the large fireplace are also important elements in the room.

    Evidence points to recent occupation. The dust has been kicked up, and fresh footprints can be seen. The large fireplace contains the embers of a fire not long dead. Beside the fireplace a thick new wool blanket has been tossed, and nearby is an empty can of Campbell's pork-and-beans. Traces of the sauce are still liquid.

    Nearby is a penny box of wooden matches, half empty, a can opener whose cutting edge approximates the sharp edges left on the can, a dull jackknife, a dirty spoon, the stub of a candle, and wrinkled pictures of various attractive young ladies in advertisments.

    Ben quickly recognizes the objects as hobo leavings. Someone's been here recently.

    On a high shelf are materials mentioned in the diary: a cigar box, and a sheaf of yellowed papers, containing Alien's translation.

    It's almost ten o-clock, so you don't have long to wait until midnight, when you can start.

    But - at ten precisely - you hear a series of short screams from the woods, then a high whistling sound from the attic. They stop before you can intervene, but everyone seems edgy.

    At the urging of the others, Ravage pokes his head through the attic door. He sees nothing, despite the bright moonlight, but he hears a savage pounding on the floorboards coming towards him.

    The last thing he feels is several sharp talons lodging into his skull.

    The other investigators see his body dance a brief jig on the ladder, then gets dragged up into the attic. The trapdoor shuts behind it.

    ((Roll sanity.))

    You start chanting at midnight, on schedule. The first twenty minutes go smoothly, but then you hear a loud thump from the attic and loud snuffling noises. Within moments the creature upgrades to insane howling, interspersed with foul grunts and curses in an harsh, guttural voice. The house begins to sway and objects fall off of shelves.

    ((Roll sanity.))
