Note on the Child is a document in The Forgotten Sanctum.


Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

"As the Chief Librarian instructed, we have redacted the child's home village from every available map. The work is taxing on our more covert agents, but it is a public service we cannot let slip. Some graves should be forgotten.

When we arrived it was a ghost town in the truest sense of the word. Men and women conjured from memory and imagination walked the streets, going about their daily duties, ignorant of their own spectral nature. Stepping through their own rotted corpses.

All was silent save the music.

We followed it to the town square, where we found the child playing, the blood of her kin spattered across her instrument. She said - sang, really - that she could not control herself, and begged us to help her stop.

We promised.

It was in poor taste to betray her trust, but at least her talents will be confined to the Collections. Confined and, in time, harnessed."
