Sunday 1930-06-08

After a short while, Kima shows up and answers quite a few of your questions.  From what you understand, they sacrifice people to keep the Fire God appeased, but she stated that they only sacrificed willing victims.  She also denied having any knowledge of Molly or any of the other missing people.

According to her, the Fire God had called Sinclair and Keyes, and had somehow caused the shipwreck because of those two.  She also told them that the weather would clear the next day, and that the villagers would then take the shipwrecked to the mainland.

There was a feast that evening, and you were pretty much woken next morning by some screaming and shouting.  As you went to investigate, you learned that Eliza had attacked Tamal, Amo’s son, for some reason, and you were being kicked off the island.

After some persuasion, Amo grudgingly let you have guides and rowers, and after spending a whole day and a night at sea, you finally reach the mainland.

Sunday, 1930-06-08

As you prepare for breakfast, James Monroe approaches you and ask if you’ve seen Molly, his wife.  It seems she has gone missing.  One of you suggests he go looking for her, and he runs off into the woods, yelling her name.  You follow, and find her necklace, a thin silver chain with a silver cross.  You head towards the mountain at the center of the island, to look for her.

A couple of miles from the village, you find a small cave.  You decide to check it out, and enter, and find a tunnel leading down.  Sam Keyes brings out his lighter, and down you go.  After a little while, the lighter runs out of gas (or goes out for some other reason), and you try to get back to the surface by following the wall of the tunnel.  However, you somehow manage to get lost in the tunnels.

You spend some time trying to find your way through the cave system, and after an encounter with white monkeys, you eventually find yourself on a small ledge, looking down on a larger ledge above a great cave.

From here, you watch Amo throwing people down into a hole below the large ledge, clearly as sacrifices.  The first victim you saw being sacrificed was a young woman, it could have been Molly, though Sam (who was the only one watching) never saw her face.

After that, you waited, listening (and watching) as Amo threw person after person into the great hole below him.  Then the sounds stopped, the people left the cave, and a voice, Kima’s, told you that it was safe to come down.  Somehow, she’d noticed you up there, and she showed you the way out of the caves.  On the way out, Victor picked up a couple of journals he found in the cave.

She did not seem eager to answer any questions, though she did tell you you were perfectly safe, and that she would come by later that evening to answer your questions and explain everything.  You returned to the village, only to find that several others were missing as well; besides Molly, Jeff Lindley and James Sinclair were missing, as well as the professor and Kalap.  The two latter turned up soon after, though the professor was pale, and did not want to answer any questions.

The books you found seemed to be journals written by a sailor named Robert Keyes, possibly an ancestor of Sam Keyes.
