About This File
In the evening to Le Chat Noir for an auction for the scroll, however neither the Duc nor Mr Wellington appears, leaving the party in the tedious company of one Maximillian von Wurtheim – Grace is impressed.
Worried the party head to investigate the shop, where they find the bodies of William Wellington partly flayed on the floor and Edgar dead of a drug overdose in his bed.
Later during a trip to the Library, Grace stumbles upon a rare German text with extremely disturbing illustrations. She is struck by a sudden realisation that her friends are controlling her every move and whim and are not to be trusted. She heads to the hotel, gives Violet the slip and meets with Max von Wurtheim once more. Under his guidance she returns to the hotel to secure the funds they require to start the new life she craves together in the Exotic East, and a scuffle ensues with the cat-like Mrs. Sunderland. Grace flees once more empty handed and gives the Colonel and Violet the slip.
