Remains of Blood Swamp

The x meters of land surrounding
th
is monument was originally
swamp, but was later filled in.

From long ago, the swamp was
nicknamed Blood Swamp because
the executioners poured the water
u
sed to wash the execution tools
in here.

Perhaps it's for that reason
many people seem to have seen
ghosts i
n the area.

  MEMOS NEXT TO CORPSE
I'm going to write everything that
I've learned so far. Maybe that will
help you out somehow.
If you're reading this,
it probably means I'm
already dead.

I saw those demons. They were
there, I'm certain. But my friend
says he didn't see anything.
If that's true, does that mean
that what I saw was an illusion?
But whether that demon that
ate human beings was real, or
whether it was just some kind
of hallucination that my mind
dreamed up... one thing I know
for sure is that I'm beyond all
hope.

It seems that they're attracted
to light. That's why people who
need light to see are their natural
prey.
They also react strongly to sound.
If you want to go on living,
you'd be better of just sitting
in the dark and staying quiet.
But even that probably won't
save you.

If you're going to try to fight them,
the most important thing is to relax.
It's dangerous to fire a gun while
you're all crazy with fear.
Take good aim, and then squeeze
the trigger. And don't forget to
finish them off. I think most of
those creatures can be killed,
even if they are tougher than
people.

Run away.

Run away! Run away! Run away!
Run away! Run away! Run away!
Run away! Run away! Run away!

  ARTICLE ABOUT MURDER INCIDENT
The police announced today that
Walter Sullivan, who was arrested
on the 18th of this month for the
brutal murder of Billy Locane and
his sister Miriam, committed
suicide in his jail cell early on the
morning of the 22nd.

According to the police
statement, Sullivan used a soup
spoon to stab himself in the neck,
severing his carotid artery.
By the time the guard discovered
him, Sullivan was dead from blood
loss, the spoon buried two inches
in his neck.
An old schoolmate of Walter
Sullivan's from his hometown of
Pleasant River said “He didn't
look like the type of guy who
would kill kids.

But I do remember that just
before they arrested him he
was blurting out all sorts of
strange stuff like 'He's trying
to kill me. He's trying to
punish me. The monster... the
red devil. Forgive me. I did it,
but it wasn't me!'.”
The schoolmate then added
“I guess now that I think of it,
he was kinda crazy.”

  LYNE HOUSE LETTER TO TIM
Dear Tim,
I have to run an errand so
I'm going out.

I left the house key with Uncle
David (You know where he lives,
don't you? The key is in the room
near the first floor staircase.).
I'll be back as soon as I can, so
please watch the place while I'm
gone.
  COIN CHEST (EASY RIDDLE)
To the right is the lady.
To the left is the old one.
In the center dwells the other.
Now just two spaces remain,
But fear not for now,
The puzzle is done.
The puzzle is done.
  COIN CHEST (NORMAL RIDDLE)
Three bright coins in five holes be
At one end sits
the Seducer of she
The wind from behind
the woman doth play
The Formless One,
Null, lies furthest from they
The Old One beside
the Serpent sits not.
Tis to the Prisoner's left
that he doth rot
  COIN CHEST (HARD RIDDLE)
First lies the seat of
He who is Peerless
Silent and empty,
heartless and fearless
Beside him sits the one who knows
The place of the servant is
next to the throne

Dozens of feet,
yet not a single toe
The One that is Hidden
beside him doth go
Seducer of dreams,
creature of Hades
Lying further from
Man and closer to Lady

Man and Woman seeing all
Heedless to the Raven's call

Silent and Hidden the two may be
They be not there for you to see

Return them to whence
they would be
And blessing shall
descend on thee

I speak thus with
the North Star behind me
The birth of the sun is
the start of the story
  COIN CHEST (EXTRA RIDDLE)
Like coins in the hazy
aether tossed
Our Souls must by
their sinful weight
Descend to earth
with lightness lost

To "right" the sins
that they hath laid
When thrice in falling they intone
Then Happiness shall be thy own

The first note be not by
the Horned One rung
Though it be there that
all sins be sprung

the Bringer of Life and
the Bringer of Shame
The sins of the latter be
even more tame

Though coming
in the Aged One's wake
The Formless One's soul
in fear doth quake

The Needless One, silent
with hungers all sated
Is least then in sin
with his lusts all abated

For the gravest of sinners
His place be appointed
And if he be lucky
may his soul be anointed

  PATIENT RECORD
[Jack Davis]
He has attempted suicide three
times in the past for reasons
unknown. Although he is normally
a model patient who follows
doctor's and nurse's orders, he
must be watched closely due to
his past pattern of sudden and
violent suicide attempts.

[Joseph Barkin]
His illness seems to be rooted in
the fact that he believes he is
guilty of causing his daughter's
death. His symptoms suggest a
psychotic break and paranoid
delusions. Normally calm, but has
a tendency towards violence when
excited.

[Joshua Lewis]
History of hospitalization as well
as numerous assault, battery and
other violent offenses. He has a
strong persecution complex and
a tendency to solve things
through violence. Extreme caution
necessary.
  DOCTOR'S JOURNAL
The potential for this illness
exists in all people and, under
the right circumstances, any
man or woman would be driven,
like him, to "the other side."

The "other side" perhaps may
not be the best way to phrase it.
After all, there is no wall between
here and there. It lies on the
borders where reality and unreality
intersect. It is a place both close
and distant.

Some say it isn't even an illness.
I cannot agree with them. I'm a
doctor, not a philosopher or even
a psychiatrist.

But sometimes I have to ask
myself this question. It's true
that to us his imaginings are
nothing but the inventions of
a busy mind. But to him, there
simply is no other reality.
Furthermore he is happy there.

So why, I ask myself, why in the
name of healing him must we drag
him painfully into the world of our
own reality?

(Something else is written by hand.)

I got the key from Joseph.
It's probably the key to that box.
  IMPRINT ON CARBON PAPER (EASY / NORMAL RIDDLE)

  DOCTOR'S LOUNGE WHITEBOARD (EASY / NORMAL RIDDLE)
“3rd floor patient wing hall – 7335”
  DOCTOR'S LOUNGE WHITEBOARD (HARD / EXTRA RIDDLE)
The pin number this month is
"T". Last month it was "X"
and before that it was "Z."
But what are they going to
do next month? That's all they
can express with 4 numbers.

Anyway does the door to the
Patient Wing really need to have
its combination changed this
often?
  DIARY ROOFTOP
May 9
Rain.
Stared out the window all day.
Peaceful here - nothing to do.
Still not allowed to go outside.

May 10
Still raining.
Talked with the doctor a little.
Would they have saved me if
I didn't have a family to feed?
I know I'm pathetic, weak.
Not everyone can be strong.

May 11
Rain again.
The meds made me feel sick
today.
If I'm only better when I'm
drugged, then who am I anyway?

May 12
Rain as usual.
I don't want to cause any more
trouble for anyone, but I'm a
bother either way.
Can it really be a such a sin to
run instead of fight?

Some people may say so, but they
don't have to live in my shoes.
It may be selfish, but it's what
I want.
It's too hard like this.
It's just too hard....

May 13
It's clear outside.
The doctors told me I've been
released - that I've got to go
home.

  "TRICK OR TREAT" ELEVATOR
Question one:
Merry-Go-Round, haunted house, roller coaster, ferris wheel and tea cups. Silent Hill is home to a thrilling amusement park that both children and adults love. The question is: What is the name of this amusement park?

1. Fantasy Land
2. Silent Hill Amusement Park
3. Lakeside Amusement Park

Question two:
Silent Hill witnessed a gruesome murder a few years back.
A brother and sister were playing in the road when they were attacked and chopped into pieces with an axe. Torn flesh, smashed bones, splattered blood, and finally... What a terrible tragedy. What gruesome end to such innocent lives. What was the name of the murderer who committed this vile act?

1. Walter Sullivan
2. Scott Fairbanks
3. Eric Gein

Question three:
South of the lake is a deserted old neighborhood called South Vale. From there to Paleville, the central resort area northwest of the lake, there's only one road you can take. Just one road, no more. The third and final question is: What is the name of that road?

1. Bachman Road
2. Rendell Street
3. Nathan Avenue
  "I'M NOT A KRIMMINAL" PATIENT MEMO
I took the direckters's key – the

I went out for the day trip. I
picked it up but did not steal
it. I'm not a krimminal.
  DIRECTOR'S NOTE
He who is not bold enough
to be stared at from across
the abyss is not bold enough
to stare into it himself.

The truth can only be learned
by marching forward.

Follow the map.
There's a letter and a wrench.

  NEW NEELY'S BAR MESSAGE

A diffErent place than MARY, James.
  DIRECTOR'S LETTER (AND WRENCH)
Or perhaps you are a fool.
The Truth usually betrays people.
A part of that abyss is
in the old society.
The key to the society
is in the park.
At the foot of the praying
woman, inside of the ground,
inside of a box.
To open it, I need a wrench.
My patient buried it there.
I knew, but did nothing.
It made me uneasy to have
such a thing near.
I wasn't looking for the truth,
I was looking for tranquility.
I also saw that thing.
I fled, but the museum
was sealed as well.
Now no one dares to
approach that place.
If you still do not wish to stop,
James,
I pray to the Lord to have
mercy on your eternal soul.

  MAGAZINE ARTICLE
Toluca Lake, the town's main
tourist attraction.
This clear, beautiful lake has
another side as well.

It may seem just like a typical
ghost story that you might find
in any number of old towns
across the country.
But in this case, the legend
is true.

On a fog-bound November day in
1918, the Little Baroness, a ship
filled with tourists, failed to return
to port.

A newspaper article from back
then simply says "It most likely
sunk for some reason". Despite
an extensive police search, not
a single fragment of the ship nor
any of the 14 bodies of
passengers or crew has ever
been recovered to this day.

In 1939, an even stranger incident
occurred.

[There are many pages torn out]

Many corpses rest at the bottom
of this lake. Their bony hands
reach up towards the boats that
pass overhead. Perhaps they
reach for their comrades?
  PRISON GUARD'S DIARY
Prisoners do not feel remorse.
In fact, they do not feel themselves
to be villains at all. Even the most
uneducated brute will use what
little words he knows to justify
himself.

And such trifling dreams they
have, flourishing even in the
darkness. Prisoners, too, are
no exception.

No matter how foul nor loathsome
one's own life and existence may
be, human nature is abiding.
