With nowhere to go but in, the party resigned themselves to exploring St. Owen’s. Most of the main floor showed the location to be fairly humane. Many of the rooms showed signs of having been abandoned in haste and a layer of dust sat over most of the rooms.
Trapped in one of the sick rooms was a man by the name of Drake. Having come here to look for an entrance to the deep paths he didn’t get far before a structural collapse trapped him in a room. Luckily this was only a day ago so he had suffered little harm other than embarrassment.
There were two things that stood out on the main floor. One was the quality and extent of the library; it seemed to cover a broad array of subject’s and was still well stocked.
The second was the garden statues and the strange creatures that were studying them. The statues made to honour the 7 virtues were arranged evenly around the room and in the centre, an odd eighth statue was newly erected, depicting an unknown figure.
The fight with the alien creatures was quick and brutal, and in the end one of the creatures escaped into the building.
The next area to be searched was the basement and in doing so they seem to have picked up a shadow. Someone is watching them, moving in the dark watching them but never getting too close. Other mysteries that have arisen in this space are the hole that seems to never end and the testing rooms for the poor souls that have been used as living experiments.
