The post for September 10th is now live. I have to admit, this is one of the weaker posts from this box. Obviously, these are nerf darts, repainted to look like metal. These bullets are an uncomfortable compromise between prop-making and effective toys. Each of these guns was also a present for a sibling. It […]

The latest page of Darkened Heart is now live: http://darkenedheart.sunkenlibrary.com/?p=101 Here we see the second half of Lee’s journal entry from two weeks ago. In the future, I’ll put split pages like this one back-to-back with the first page. I may even just double-post split pages like these, to avoid the disruption of a narrative […]
The automated system brought the post online when it was supposed to, but I forgot to run all the other maintenance tasks, so it showed up without a proper title or commentary. In my defense, I was at work until midnight yesterday. I went home and crawled into bed with a lingering feeling that I’d […]
It’s the beginning of the end for the first “Season” of Darkened Heart. The transition will prove an interesting challenge. I’ve managed to keep a weekly update schedule with only a few glitches thus far, but there’s a great deal of work waiting for me before I can run the next box.
This is easily my favorite prop from Lee’s box. It took quite a bit of work to put together, and came out absolutely fantastic. The intern may protest it’s existence, but then again, he’s not the sort to look at a prop like this and say “Oooh neat!” You can expect to see at least […]
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 […]
I screwed up the update while trying to make the system run it’s updates automatically. Yes, that’s right, I broke things by trying to make them run smoother. But at least it’s properly updated now. The root fragments in this bottle are actually just left over herbs from my kitchen. I can’t tell you the […]
Back to another text update. I like these scan-based updates. I get to do a lot of infodumping while displaying some of the better work from the boxes.
Absinthe is fascinating stuff. I once went on a multi-week research bender about the drink and how it rose to popularity only to be banned. At the time, I was looking for a suitably dramatic drink to celebrate the anniversary of getting dumped. Instead I blew past said anniversary completely, because I was so buried […]
Feel free to post any out-of-universe observations here. Critiques welcome. I dropped a bit of a hint with this page. Namely, I foreshadowed the presence of Lee’s missing documents. That’ll be important in a few months.
