Shadow Flight 1: Haunted House score: 3 of 30 check_piano


You creep slowly toward the living room, hoping that the strains of "Nearer My God to Thee" drown out the creaking of the floorboards beneath your trembling feet. You open your knife to use as a small weapon (if the thing playing the piano can feel a physical weapon...).

You carefully peer around the corner and into the living room, straining to see the piano. You make out a shadow floating to and fro in front of the keyboard, dancing this way and that in morbid glee. A breeze hits your face, blowing through the front door frame...

CRAAAAASH!!! As if in slow motion, you lose your balance and fall into the room, knocking over a small table you hadn't noticed before. The piano stops playing as you frantically fumble for the penlight and shine it toward the now-quiet piano. The creepy musician has vanished (aren't ghosts afraid of light?).

Then you notice the ragged curtains in the window next to the piano, blowing in the breeze through the front door frame. As you look carefully, you also notice that the player piano scroll has moved, tearing up cobwebs in its wake. The rusty mechanism must have been jarred loose by your movements in the house; perhaps you are no nearer to God than before.

The living room smells musty; dust is everywhere.

Look around again.

Wait here until morning and hope nothing happens...

Go through the double doors into the dining room.

Go through the door beside the couch.

Get the poker.

Sift through the fireplace ashes with your fingers.

Go through the south door next to the fireplace.
