Dates: April 20-22, 1938
Player Characters: The Silver Ghost
NPCs: Evan Sabre, Sir Geoffrey Ravensward, Antonio Montoya, Arthur Styles
Location: San Francisco, San Mateo
The Silver Ghost finds himself investigating two distinct and apparently unrelated mysteries: a series of apparently random killings of women across all nine counties of the San Francisco Bay Area; and the disappearance of a young archaeologist, Artemis Ravensward, from a hospital where she had just awakened from a deep coma.
While the Silver Ghost is staking out a dance contest in San Mateo (a city located in the county of the same name, the only one which had not yet had a killing), the two mysteries converge in a quite unexpected way. The killer, a deluded adherent of ancient Aztec religion named Antonio Montoya, is being stalked by none other than Artemis Ravensward. The Silver Ghost captures and subdues Montoya before Ravensward can kill him. Turning his attention to Ravensward, he discovers that she is not what she seems: while her body is that of the young archaeologist, her mind is that of the dead Evan Sabre, who possessed her comatose (and, in fact, soulless) body in an attempt to do some good on earth in recompense for the evil he had done while alive.
The Silver Ghost insists that Sabre cannot keep Ravensward’s body, despite his noble intentions, and convinces him to return to the spirit world. When Sabre is gone, the Silver Ghost returns the young Ravensward’s body — now dead — to her grieving father, Sir Geoffrey Ravensward.
Elements of Note
This was the last (to date) appearance of Evan Sabre in the world of the Chamber. Odds are it will, in fact, be the last, unless I can come up with a really clever way of bringing him back yet one more time…
