Beyond the Witch House

Type: Act
Encounter Set: The Secret Name
Clue Threshold: 5
Objective – Only investigators in the Witch House Ruins may spend the requisite number of clues, as a group, to advance.
Searching through the ruins, you find a rotting hole in the slanted ceiling, leading to a closed-off attic. Amidst the debris are crushed and splintered bones, some human and some…not. More of Keziah’s awful tomes are scattered about, filled with pages of dark rituals and black spellcraft. On the floor, a circle has been carved—or perhaps gnawed—into the wood. At the center lies a spatter of dried blood and a jagged knife. What terrible rituals were performed in this profane space? Perhaps there is a way you can know for sure. You take the knife and prick your hand deep enough for blood to well in your palm. Using Keziah’s formulae, you draw a pattern in the circle, and carve a path through time…
Put the set-aside Site of the Sacrifice location into play.
—If it is agenda 1, 2, or 3, find Nahab (even if she is out of play), place 2 doom on her, and place her at the Site of the Sacrifice.
—If it is agenda 4, find Nahab (even if she is out of play) and place her at the Site of the Sacrifice. Move each doom from agenda 4a to Nahab.
Find Brown Jenkin (even if he is out of play) and place him in Nahab’s current location.
Among the books in this strange room is a black, nameless tome inscribed with dried red blood. It matches a description from Walter Gilman’s journal of a book he names “The Black Book.” This room must be the haunt of Keziah Mason, from over 200 years ago. It is rumored that Keziah had discovered deep mathematical truths that allowed her to traverse space and time. Perhaps you can find a way out using this knowledge.

Investigating the Witch House

Type: Act
Encounter Set: The Secret Name
Clue Threshold: 3
Objective – If each undefeated investigator is in Walter Gilman’s Room, investigators may spend the requisite number of clues, as a group, to advance.
Standing in a dead man’s room is disconcerting enough, but what you find within is enough to make you want to leave and never return. Walter Gilman’s journal is filled with descriptions of his dreams and visions, each more terrifying and perplexing than the last. He mentions seeing the figure of Keziah Mason on more than one occasion, and at one point calls her by another name: “Nahab.” As soon as you read the name aloud, the nearby window shatters, and an all-too-familiar spectral mist invades the cramped space. When it recedes, everything about the room has changed. A work desk and an aged bookshelf occupy the far corner of Gilman’s room, where his bed should be. The door you entered from is gone. Strange geometrical markings, drawn with a sticky red substance, cover the walls.
Swap Walter Gilman’s Room with the set-aside Keziah’s Room, taking its place (all tokens and cards at the former location are now at the new location). Remove each other location in play from the game.
Choose an investigator to take control of the set-aside The Black Book asset. Shuffle both set-aside copies of Strange Geometry into the encounter deck.
When you arrive at the old Witch House, you find it in a sorrier state than you imagined. Surrounded by a crooked picket fence, the house looks as though it may fall apart at any minute. The front door is locked, but you are able to easily enter through one of the windows after pulling apart the rotting wooden boards covering the shattered glass.

Gilman could not have told what he expected to find there, but he knew he wanted to be in the building where some circumstance had more or less suddenly given a mediocre old woman of the seventeenth century an insight into mathematical depths perhaps beyond the utmost modern delvings of Planck, Heisenberg, Einstein, and de Sitter. – H.

Objective – If there is no doom on Nahab, advance.
The ancient crone lets out a banshee’s wail as you dismantle her unholy ritual. The room unfurls through space-time, the cramped, slanted walls unfolding to reveal the oblivion beyond. The creature who was once Keziah Mason croaks a loathsome curse as her shapeless form is pulled into the void. Bit by bit, the wood-paneled flooring below your feet breaks apart. Then you are ripped—the pull from the stars—a muddy alleyway—the flute in the woods—the roaring abyss—the gaze of the watcher—The Tower—a green hillside—the black vortex—the screams of the accused—the piper—three arrows—a sacrifice—a ringing bell—an ascension—and you emerge from the anomaly, crashing painfully onto the floor.
(→ R2)
You part the seams of space-time and arrive at your destination. It is the same cramped attic, but in a different time. The room is dark save for a violet glow emanating from the far edge, where the floor falls into oblivion. From out of the abyss, the ancient crone and her familiar emerge...
