The One Who Waits in the Dark
A library at the esteemed Miskatonic University. Has one of the largest archives of Occult knowledge in the western hemisphere.
This worthy institution has several interesting items tucked away, but the investigators need a separate Library Use roll to find each of the following items.
In 1835, a prosperous merchant builds the house, but immediately falls ill and sells it to a Mr. Walter Corbitt, esquire.
In 1852, Walter Corbitt is sued by neighbors, who petition to force him to leave the area “in consequence of his surious [sic] habits and inauspicious demeanor”.
Evidently Corbitt wins the lawsuit. His obituary in 1866 states that he still lived in the same place. It also states that a second
lawsuit was being waged to prevent Corbitt from being buried
in his basement, as provided by his will.
n No outcome to the second lawsuit is recorded.
Each item is in a different newspaper and takes four hours to find.
