Alone in the Dark

A Pirate’s Log Book

Memoirs of a Lost Soul

The mask must fall! You who discover this manuscript, understand this: I am here at your side. I am waiting in the darkness of my crypt. Soon, you will belong to me. One of my slaves wrote this document. I have lived for three centuries and my name is Ezechiel Pregzt or Eliah Pickford… You may choose which to call me.

I do not hide out of fear. My power is immense. I have sailed the seven seas. My ship, the Astarte, spread terror through all the continents. The corsairs judged me like the Welsh judges of 1620… But they could not destroy me, and neither could the pirates. Now, I am immobilised … Damned Yankees!

Witchcraft, voodoo and the Cthulhu cult… I know them all. I have reigned and implored the stones. Only the Chthonian haunts the cavern and resists me; but he dare not attack! I have need of a living body to regenerate myself. The Hartwoods managed to escape from me. But you who are reading these words, you will yield to my embrace!

I hear your ragged breath and smell the stench of your fear. I have vanquished death. I built Derceto. I know what it is to wait. Cthulhu helps me. My servants will lay you upon the sacrificial stone. My roar will rend the night. You will be mine and I shall reign once more. Come to me.

Alone in the Dark

In 1924, Jeremy Hartwood, a noted artist and owner of the Louisiana mansion Derceto (named after the Syrian deity), has committed suicide by hanging himself. His death appears suspicious yet seems to surprise nobody, for Derceto is widely reputed to be haunted by an evil power. The case is quickly dealt with by the police and soon forgotten by the public. The player assumes the role of either Edward Carnby—a private investigator who is sent to find a piano in the loft for an antique dealer—or Emily Hartwood, Jeremy's niece, who is also interested in finding the piano because she believes a secret drawer in it has a note in which Jeremy explains his suicide. Whether Carnby or Hartwood, the character goes to the mansion to investigate.
