Alfred plops into his chair, this time away from the others. He pulls his flask and drinks until he sleeps. His dreams are uneasy and strange, until he is jostled awake by a rough landing. He staggers off the runway and towards his car. Paul makes a passing comment about his being unfit to drive that registers a full minute after it is spoken. Paul's worries are put to ease though as Alfred falls asleep again as he sits in his car.

He wakes up the next morning with a terrible hangover and begins to drive back towards town. He swings by George's home and asks him to breakfast, trying to not talk about anything related to his new case.

I just want something normal for a change.

psychoanalysis is used during a scenario. All stability is restored between, if you spend time with a source of stability.

Upon arrival, he seeks out his mentor, Dr. Johns (his mentor and former professor of behavioral science during his days at university). Maybe Dr. Johns can help Paul through this crisis.

Dr. Johns is a source of stability for me.

Dorothy goes home to rest and contemplate what she's reading in these new books and what exactly the others saw in the basement.

What could they have seen in that basement that would shake them so much? Maybe I can find exactly what was going on in these occult books.

End of Act 1
A week passes, and you decide to reconvene. Dorothy has read through several of the books you found, but there is too much there, and too disorganized. The best source of information you currently have is the Testament, with its multiple clues. The clues you have to Mexico City is the cultist there J.B., who seems to be at odds with Trammel in Los Angeles. And the letterhead of Luz Records, which points to a PO box.

There is also the record itself. Two sides, simply called A and B, each three minutes long. Alfred as listened to it, and it simple refrains in Spanish, rhythmically sung between wordless crooning. A woman's voice sings things like “mi corazón,” “mi amor,” “mi nombre,” and “mi boca".

The first problem is that Evelyn for several days refuses to answer her phone, when she finally does, she lets you know, quite brusquely, that she wants nothing more to do with the matter. The second problem is that Ernest isn't answering his phone at all.

You go to his home, and find a letter there for you. In it he explains that he has been unable to sleep, because of all the things he has seen, and felt he couldn't delay the investigation. He has thus gone to Mexico City ahead of you.

You give a brief report to Janet Winston-Rodgers. She agrees that the matter needs further investigation, and allows you the continued use of her pilot.

The next day Frank Kearns fly you to the location of your next investigation.

Here ends Act 1
