Discussion Post for Darkened Heart, August 6th

Online ahead of schedule! You’ll have to wait for midnight to roll around before seeing the actual post, but I wanted to get this lined up while I had a spare moment.

I don’t have a lot of clever stuff to say about this post. It’s another letter from Mr. Horne, and it gets into some interesting narrative gaps that I built into the story. Mr. Horne is presently referring to information that Lee hasn’t given us. Namely that the Amazonian River Crab has no effect on the Pennsylvania Plague.

This kind of odd skip will make a lot more sense when we get to the second box. We’re coming up on the end of Lee’s narrative in about two months. That’s when things will get a good bit more interesting.


  • I have really enjoyed your last couple of pages since my last comment … the way that the artifacts bring different pieces of information to the puzzle of what happened and what may be going down.

    Perhaps it is just my interest in Lovecraft (dead but dreaming!) but I am starting to wonder. Don’t tell me though as I prefer to guess and find out rather than be told! *grins*

    And *just* two months until … well, I am happy with the pace as it has quite a forensic/research feel to it so far 🙂

    • Oh no worries, I’m not giving away anything ahead of schedule. I’m happy to talk about what’s already up, but if you want to know more, you’ll have to wait for the Friday updates.

      Because I’m evil. That’s why.

      As for the schedule. If I had my preference, I’d update either on a Tuesday/Thursday or a Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule, but I simply don’t have the time. This little side-project is an adjunct to my full time job and normal life. Getting an update online once per week is already enough of a pain.

      I’ve been thinking about increasing the pace for the next artifact. The second box is easily the most impressive of the lot, and has quite a bit of material in it. I’ll cross that bridge once I’m done photographing it… which I haven’t even started yet (that pesky full time job again, if only I didn’t like food so much).
