Upon entering the kitchen, before your eyes, you see none other than Jennifer Harrington locked in an embrace with Captain Gilliam, when suddenly she attacks him with a kitchen knife!

"Oooh!" He cried, still holding an unlit cigarette in his lips, "But...but.......how could YOU!"

"How?" Laughs Jennifer, "How not? I'm quite spry for my age. Isn't that the sort of thing you liked, Bill?"

"I thought you LOVED me!" He moaned in pain.

"You actually thought I loved you....you, of all people," Jennifer huffed, sinking the knife deeper, making the captain cry out, "You did your bit, getting us here with the boat, but ultimately hun, I have other ambitions than being a moll for some salty old captain!"

Jennifer turns to you,

"Oh hello Thomas." She says smiling, "You are just in time for the big reunion."

Dear God! How do you address this scene?

You turn around and leave the kitchen without assisting Captain Bill. Jennifer continues to smile, and does not stop you from leaving.

You're back in the hall and the whole house has fallen silent. Where to?

In the living room is Kathy. She smiles and takes your hand. "Hello Thomas. You've made it at last."

Image

It's Kathy! What now?

"Come," Says Kathy, "I want you to meet someone."

Do you dare refuse her?

Resigned, you follow Kathy up the stairs. Mrs. Harrington is right behind you both.

Image Image

Walking along a short hall, the three of you enter a bedroom, and find none other than...

Dr. Dragon very much alive! She is covered in what you now realize must be fake blood, and is standing next to a decrepit, but not too feeble old man.

"Thomas, I'm sure you remember Dr. Dragon." Says Kathy, "Oh, yes, I forgot to mention, I never really did kill her! You see, it was my sister, Debra, who wanted the good doctor dead, not me. She grew paranoid, our murder operation slowly driving her mad. She saw Dr. Dragon as an outsider, an interloper, and insisted to kill her. Unfortunately, we could not allow that, and Debra sadly was proving too much a liability. And so..."

"Yes, poor Debra," Agreed Dr. Dragon, "I admit, our bit of theatrics using a prop poker to make me look dead was enough to convince Debra, though it didn't seem to fool that lad, Fayas, the ship's engineer. He seemed to suspect me from the start, and with Debra no longer around, it seems I had to help Kathy out a bit, and so, that poker came quite handy knocking out Fayas, and then using my own dental floss (razor sharp it is!) to finish the job for him!"

Image

"But yes, Dr. Dragon, has such an important role to play in all this. I almost forgot Thomas, meet my grandfather - Grandpa Will!"

The old man looks at you and gives you a wrinkly grin with a smoking pipe wedged in between. He is brandishing a shotgun in his hand, yet though cold in gaze, he seems non-threatening (to you.)


"Wellll...." He says, "You must be the young whippersnapper Kathy has been telling me about. Quite a catch for her, indeed. Indeed. You see Thomas, I knew your grandfather many moons ago, here in Moonpoint. It's a shame, what happened to him, but you see, he had been always on my tail - he knew me once as someone, Willard Smith, the supposed demon of Moonpoint who killed all those people at old Monty's mansion. Hehehe. And it's all true. I did! Slaughtered them all! Just as we have done once more this evening, with this basterization of his God-awful B.I.G. Club. So long I live - Thomas - B.I.G. has had its day! And anyone who dares continue Montgomery's legacy, shall die at the hand of the Smiths! I want a good look at you young man, why don't you come a little closer?"

Image


This is almost all too much for you to intake. What ought you say or do now?

Image

Come closer to Grandpa Will
Ask - What does Dr. Dragon have to do with all this?
Ask - What do you intend for me?
Ask - Was that you shooting at everyone, earlier?
Ask - So, who murdered who?
Ask - Where's Tobias?
Ask - What happened to Captain Gillian?

Say something to Kathy Harrington

"My goodness, what an obtuse question!" Declares Kathy, "Well my dear, you murdered Mr. Hand, let's not forget that. I was there, and I loved that you did that. You also helped me in slaying Sonja Zuki, most wonderfully."

She turns to Grandpa Will, who is smiling wickedly.

"Naturally, part of our gathering tonight was that Grandpa wanted to murder, so very dearly, but he is not his young self anymore, so he enlisted in the help of Debra and myself, to conduct the killings. You must know, I never wanted to kill Debra, my own sister, but even when you love your own family, you cannot let them interfere with an important operation."

"I mostly let my granddaughters do the killings." Informed Jennifer.

"Dab nabbit!" Declared Willard Smith, "I regret I couldn't have taken part in the fun, but I did polish off that silly policewoman! Did she really think she could protect anyone from us? Mind you, that booby trap I set up outside our home grounds was pretty clever, wouldn't you admit?"

"Indeed!" Agreed Jennifer, "Took out three fools in one swoop!"

"As mentioned already, I killed Fayas," Admitted Dr. Dragon, "He was on my trail and by then, Kathy needed a bit of help disposing of people. Also, I did help bate Debra so that we could polish her off too."

"As for the others," Said Kathy, "It was mostly an operation between me and Debra, before she became a nuisance of course. She killed your brother, you must know already, and helped me to dispatch of Andrew who our grandmother helped to lure. We already had killed Jonathan Zuki together on the boat, and sabotaged it so it would sink in a timely manner. By the time we arrived at Moonpoint, Debra got to work killing her husband and son, who were merely ploys to help get her integrated with B.I.G., before we had to kill her too."

"And" Added Willard, "It was I who burned down your grandfathers' church, with the help of Jennifer, after we forced him to wed us! What do you think of that?"

"Well, Thomas," Says Grandpa in a creepy voice, "It is decided that you must join our little family. Take the vacant place of Debra as my honorary grand-child. Afterall, you have blood on your hands. Join us, and perhaps you may stay safe. Not to forget, my Kathy has taken a shine to you."

"Wouldn't it be wonderful, Thomas?" Squeals Kathy, "Us together, murdering anyone who trespasses on the island!"

"Excellent, a good decision!" Rejoices Grandpa Will.

"I am so happy you've part of us now," Says Kathy,"Right now, our main objective is to hold our house, and establish our holding over Moonpoint as our base. We have a car and a boat should we need to go to the mainland for supplies, which Dr. Dragon will be doing shortly. After all, it is her expertise that is keeping Grandpa Will alive, and only she can acquire the right meds for him."

"I'll be leaving right now." Informs Dr. Dragon, "If you wish, you may come with me. Could use an extra hand with the supplies."

"Or, you can stay with me." Says Kathy with a smile.

ImageImage

Who do you choose?

-Go with Dr. Dragon
-Stay with Kathy and family

"Okay Dr. Dragon, I'll go with you," You answer

"Good choice," Says Dr. Dragon.

"Don't be long!" Calls out Kathy, as the two of you depart.

Both you and Dr. Dragon make your way downstairs. Once you are both out of earshot from the Smith family, Diane looks at you skeptically and asks,

"You don't *really* love her, do you?"

"Feelings can be a funny thing," You answer, unsure what sort of answer to give back to that question.

Crossing the hall, you both enter the kitchen where Tobias is standing over the Captain, who is collapsed in an unresponsive heap in front of the oven. Curiously, you wonder what he was trying to do.

Image

Goodness, what now?

-Examine the Captain
-Say something to Tobias
-Say something to Dr. Dragon
-Search kitchen
-Go down steps to the left
-Exit to hall

"Yes," Answers Dragon, "Though I should say, the supplies have been gathered."

"What do you mean, Doctor?" You ask.

"Let's just say, during that time you thought I was dead, I was in fact, quite active. The captain and I were moving the gold to this very boat house. It's a pity....Jennifer must have killed him."

"She did," You confirm, "I saw her do it with my own eyes."

"It was a gamble. The captain had so many fleeting loyalties... to Jennifer, to Sonja and yes, to me. He had made sure all of us felt he was on their side, but ultimately, the gold is all that mattered. And there's enough of it to satisfy for my stay on the mainland.

"Okay, seriously, I'm confused, what the heck is going on?" Bemoans Tobias.

"Perhaps I will need to explain more...but not here. Those freaks will be coming downstairs soon. It won't be long before they suspect something's up."

Image

Ask Dr. Dragon
-Could you explain the gold more?
-Why was the captain helping Mrs. Harrington, Sonja Zuki, and also you?
-Can you get us away from this town?
