Preview[edit | edit source]
In the ruins of the Erca Mansion, the remainder of the Caritat family that lived there has come down to one: Atisun. Standing in front of the mansion, he awaits the player who helps him to figure out his family's past.
Stage 1[edit | edit source]
» Speak to Atisun.
- Atisun: Oh, a human? If I could beg your pardon a moment...could I talk to you about the mansion here?
- Atisun: It was not always so dilapidated. It once stood tall, a monument to the family of Caritat, who constructed it from the ground up.
- Atisun: The Caritats were unlike any other. Uncharacteristically selfless and helpful. Their wealth was everyone’s wealth as far as they were concerned.
- Atisun: But... Eventually... Erm, we’re not entirely sure what happened, only rumours have surfaced over the years, but...things took a turn, shall we say.
- Atisun: Because, aah...how shall I put this... One day they were all...discovered dead. Murdered. By each other.
- Atisun: I am the last remaining descendant, Atisun Caritat. I was the only survivor of the... incident. I was only an infant when I was found. by a passerby.
- Atisun: Since, erm...since there was no one alive to report the incident, it wasn't discovered until days later when a traveller passing by took notice of the mansion.
- Atisun: I do not believe that my family simply went mad, but I do not know what happened. I want to know the truth. I think this mansion still holds the answers I'm looking for.
- Atisun: Yet, I am...scared of this place. It is the ruins of the life I should have had. The spirits of the dead are still there...cursed. I need someone else to uncover my heritage.
- Atisun: Don't you worry, like my ancestors, I'm a generous man. If you help me, I will reward you handsomely. All you have to do, is go in there and find answers. I'm sure the past won't haunt us both.
Stage 2[edit | edit source]
» Enter Erca Mansion.
- To learn the story of the Caritat family, you must experience what happened here many years ago...
Stage 3[edit | edit source]
» Learn the story of the Caritat Family.
Dialogue: Talking to various people around the room:
- Check: This check is made out to a charity for a lot of emeralds.
- Maid: It's so nice that the Caritats are donating all of these supplies to the struggling people in the forest.
- Mr. Caritat: He seems to be very engrossed in his writing.
Talking to the Maid next to Timmy Caritat:
- Maid: I've heard about weird things happening around the house. People are saying the mansion might be haunted!
- Servant: Ghosts? Preposterous! This mansion isn't haunted, don't believe those silly rumors!
- Timmy: G-g-ghosts?
Talking to the Servant next to Timmy Caritat:
- Servant: Mister Caritat is always writing in that book, always so intensely. I wonder what he is writing.
- Timmy: He won't even tell me what he's writing.
- Maid: I'll bet he's writing insults about us. He can't be as nice as he appears.
Talking to Timmy Caritat (Updates the Quest Book):
- Timmy: I accidentally dropped my Library Key down the drain, do you think my dad will be angry?
- Maid: No, Mister Caritat is very forgiving. I doubt he'd be upset, especially if it was an accident.
- Timmy: I still want to find the key though, do you know where I should look?
- Servant: Well, the drainage pipes have probably taken the key to the basement in the southeast corner of the mansion by now, that's most likely where it is.
Stage 4[edit | edit source]
» Enter the basement and recover the Library Key.
Dialogue: (opening the Library Door)
- Using the Library key, you open the lock. You may now use this door.
Stage 5[edit | edit source]
» Enter the library of Erca Mansion.
Butler's Journal: It appears that all of the pages have been torn out...
- Page 1: Today was my first day as the butler for the Caritat family. They gave me quite a warm welcome. I think I'm going to like it here.
- Page 2: The Caritats are as nice as people say. They're some of the kindest people I've ever met, let alone work for.
- Page 3: That Timmy boy has been acting rather unusual lately... Uncharacteristically hostile. I wonder what's come over him.
- Page 4: I've been hearing strange noises at night. Scratching, and sometimes yelling...I do hope nothing bad is going on.
- Page 5: I don't even know how this happened, but Timmy performed dark magic. He shot a fireball! The north wall of the library was wrecked! (Updates the Quest Book)
Stage 6[edit | edit source]
» Enter the hole in the wall.
- You begin to experience visions of how this charred hole came to be...
- Mister Caritat: Timmy, is something bothering you? You have been acting so weird lately.
- Timmy: You cannot command me, mortal! You and all of your inferior species will bow to the darkness!
- Mister Caritat: I don’t know what game you are playing, Timmy. But I will not stand for it any longer, snap out of it!
- Timmy: You shall pay for your insolence, mortal!
- Mister Caritat: Dark magic? What foul books have you been reading? And what's that in your hand?
- Mister Caritat: Casting spells with a black spoon? I’m going to get rid of this foul thing!
- Timmy: That is an item beyond you, mortal. Give it back to me this instant!
- What's this spoon doing in the fireplace? Maybe you should bring it back to the Kitchen to find out where it came from.
Stage 7[edit | edit source]

» Listen to Mr. Caritat’s announcement.
- Mister Caritat: Attention, attention everyone! I have an announcement I'd like to make!
- Mister Caritat: My son, Timothy, has just turned eighteen today.
- Mister Caritat: Now, there have been a few slight hiccups over the years, but we've made it through mostly in one piece.
- Mister Caritat: And I'd like to say, I'm very proud of him. To Timothy, a new man!
- Timothy: Thank you very much, Dad, and everyone here. Here's to more years of health...wait, hm?
- Mister Caritat: Something wrong, my boy?
- Timothy: I thought I heard something coming from the kitchen, is all. It was probably nothing, though.
Stage 9[edit | edit source]

- Chef: It's happening again! Everyone, get out of here, this demon is unkillable! Just run! GET OUT!

- It appears everyone has fled. Perhaps you should see what the remaining people are talking about…
Stage 11[edit | edit source]
» Speak to people who haven't fled from the disaster.
- Mr. Caritat: My god...what is wrong with this place? No matter what I do, what I try...
- Timothy: How was any of that even possible? What are we going to tell their families?
- Mr. Caritat: ...Timothy, I'm going to ask you something, and I need you to answer me honestly. Were you...were you responsible for this?
- Timothy: No, of course not! I overcame that years ago, you know that, I can't believe you still suspect me of-
- Servant: Ah, sir, we did find something rather unusual in the kitchen that might interest you? Maybe?
- Mr. Caritat: What- Out with it! What did you find?! Please, please tell me I'm wrong!!
- Servant: We found this charred-looking black spoon. I've worked here for years, and I've never seen any spoons of this style in the mansion.
- Timothy: Wait, that spoon? I remember sneaking into your study that one time to get it, but how did it survive the fire?
- Mr. Caritat: Wait, you got it from my STUDY?! You...you idiot! Do you have any idea what you stupidly, yet inadvertently have done?! You must NEVER go in my study!!
Stage 12[edit | edit source]

- Atisun: Oh thank goodness, you're back to us. I was so §aworried...er§a, you might not recall. Let me explain...
- Atisun: It...it seemed like you were possessed. You stood in the hall for...I don't know how long. I couldn't snap you out of it, no matter what I tried.
- Atisun: Voices that weren't yours, you spoke out their moments and thoughts. The maids, my father...everyone. I...you said what I needed to hear.
- Atisun: My father, wanting to prove to everyone that the forest was still good, built his mansion atop the very spot that was acclaimed to be the cause of the decay.
- Atisun: What emerged from that spot? Who knows...but, whatever it was...the darkness must have lingered, and drove them all to madness. I must consider myself lucky that I did not fall.
- Atisun: H-Hold on, where did that letter come from?! You never moved from the hall, but...I see the Caritat signature. Harold must have wrote that.
- Atisun: This must hold the answers I am looking for. I'm sorry you went through that ordeal... I would suggest seeing a healer as soon as possible.
- Atisun: I don't know how you got this, but it's exactly what I needed. I will make sure no one enters this house again. It is cursed. Thank you for helping me.
