HC’S ROLE PLAYING STORY | Mansion of Mysteries Story Thread

Blood still poured on the Mansion’s floor. The exquisite clock chimed 12h. The many rooms creaked, groaned, tinkled and whispered words of unknown meaning.

The Duchess glanced over her shoulder to the grandfather clock, sighed and looked back through the window of the luxurious dining room. She wore an elegant old-styled white dress, which one would use for fantasy parties these days. The Duchess was unaware of that fact though.

For many years, pretty much everything that happened outside those walls was of little to no importance to the Duchess, until recently. The last few years were painful to her and to all the Mansion’s residents. They became aware of the world itself, and how it was revealed to them changed their lives forever. Even now, years later, she could still recall the stoic voice of Hugo, the Librarian,
“Information, ma’am, can either enlighten or destroy us.”

She now sought help outside the Mansion walls, for she was sure that the place itself had an unknown power, a hindering thirst for more, for something more, and it all felt oppressive, mischievous and dangerous. And even then, help seldom was effective. The world outside was so different.

Still, something drove her to this same window again, to ponder over these same thoughts, to prepare another way to cross the meandering obstacles of that place. And her voice would again bring strange people to this place, her ‘guests’, people who could help her even without knowing what they were supposed to do, because she didn’t know herself.

She simply knew whatever the answer was, it had two sides of it. Suddenly, the door at the far side of the room opened and a hunched emaciated man entered. He looked like a butler.


“The new guests are likely to arrive at any moment, ma’am,” announced the man with a low bow to the duchess, who was standing next to the window, as she looked out into the distance. “Should I go fetch them?”

“Nay, they’ll get here eventually,” she spoke with a musical voice, almost sad, turning her head to the man as she said it. Her crimson eyes bore a steady gaze over him with an enigmatic intent. “Tend to them when they arrive. I won’t be able to see them so soon.”

“Of course, ma’am. What about the other guests?”

“Aid them, whenever possible …” she hesitated. “But avoid unnecessary risks. Seal any potentially dangerous rooms.”

He bowed again and went out of the dining room. The Duchess watched the hunched man close the door behind him.

She played absent mindedly with one of her rings, frowning slightly. Then her eyes shifted back to the place she knew her guests were most likely getting gathered, or already were. Or would never be.


“Pray there will be time.” she whispered with a knot in her throat.

Zach arrives at the meeting point overlooking the mansion with a briefcase in hand. "Nice place, the owners must be well-off." Looking around, there doesn't seem to be anyone else. Time for some meditation then. He takes a seat at the nearby bench and closes his eyes, taking in the clear air.

Zach's eyes snap open with surprise, he is still on the train. He visibly relaxes after he takes a look out of the window and notes his surroundings. The destination is but a couple of stops ahead, good thing he woke up when he did. "Whew, right on time."

"Ja, I'm getting there" After a bit of chatter he closed the call. Manfred drove all the way from a nearby town, he wasn't sure of what his job was, but he thought that his car would have been useful to haul some old trinkets that his client would have sold him,
or at least he hoped so.

The road took a sudden turn, and looking at the surrounding landscape Manfred thought about a possible place for his novel.

Bob stumbles over to the mansion, hauling a gigantic walrus costume, and muttering to himself.

Weirdest set of directions... Ooof... who in their right mind would put a dry cleaners' HERE of all places...

He sets the costume down, laying it against a convenient tree.

'Oh hey you guys, what are you all doing here?' he asks.
