Friday, 13th of January 1893
- Gibson and Hobbs met with John William Brodie-Innes at the Arts and Authors Club, and he gave them a business proposal: Spend a night in the supposedly haunted Webber House, and perhaps discover what the fuzz is all about. Promises were made about acceptance into a more exquisite club, that can further their careers (and also has a much better bar).
- Research were made about the house and its inhabitants. Several newspaper articles were discovered.
- Gordon Gibson visited an earlier tenant of the Webber House, Mrs Gabriella Macario at Roxbury Asylum. After realising that the poor woman was beyond normal conversation, our good friend Mr. Gibson did the unspeakable act of stealing the good lady’s artwork. In the meantime Reverend Hobbs took a quiet night in and wrote his irritatingly deep and meaningful, yet oh so cleverly composed poem “Who Can Claim”.

- In Epsom, a discarded article was found in the archives of the Surrey Advertiser. The duo afterwards visited the ruins of the Chapel of Contemplation. While Gibson fell into the basement and hurt his knee, Hobbs ran for help. This great misfortune forced the good vicar to accidentaly steal a rope, a crime not gone unnoticed. Arrested by a Sgt. Ellsworth of Epsom Police, he was forced to spend the night in the police station. Mr. Gibson on the other hand, had a unfortunate meeting with the local flora and fauna, but managed to get out of the Chapel basement by his own hands. In his pocket was an small, red and encrypted journal of some kind. A few entries was still readable.
Tuesday 17th of January
- A small detour was made, and our merry men once more embarked upon London to stock up, and make some preparations to spend the night in the Webber House. Gordon Gibson hired Rhys Butler to tend to his store while being tied up in Epsom.
- Once more in Epsom, they spent the night in Epsom Hotel, not at all avoiding the task at hand.
Wednesday 18th of January
- The following day was spent in the Webber house, and several discoveries and injuries were made: Parts of Walter Corbitt’s Journal was found; The basement was traversed and despite the unfortunate episode with the rats, an Tibetan-looking dagger was found. That whole incident with the cellar stairs however, is an incident better left unmentioned.
- Hunger must have hit the duo rather badly, as they decided to try out some of the food left in the kitchen pantry. Thanks to a priestly hunch, a fast-witted antiquarian and a can of Auntie Mays’ Canned Pea Soup, the rest of Corbitt’s journal was saved from the furnace. And not to mention the fact that there still was pea soup enough left for an evening meal.
- More injuries awaited in the upstairs bedroom, where mr Hobbs was assaulted by a force unknown and thrown out of the window. After seeing a pool of blood form in the bedroom ceiling, Gibson climbed up on the attic, and discovered a crate containing an old french book and two framed litographies of an artist unknown.
- After these incidents, the vicar understandingly didnt feel like spending the night in the Webber house. After packing up, the pair performed (the perfectly understandable) act of not running a way at all and checked back in at Epsom Hotel, planning to
fleetravel with the morning train back to safe old London.
