Well I know I got abit heated in my last missive but it turns out that I was completely wrong. I thought it couldn’t get any worse than being wet and miserable on an island I was utterly wrong because during the course of this evening I managed to sink to new depths of despair. I thought it was bad back in the old days when everyone started going missing from back streets but here, not only have I had to see two bodies, one of them had melted. It sodding melted! That isn’t natural and then Monty, Rose and the old man are rambling about fae things I didn’t understand that is for sure. I am just thankful they managed to get the radio working to get us off this dump. I need you to get me some shows and I think we need to think about getting off this blasted island. Maybe for new year we could make a go at the colonies?

Yours

Well, this was all a waste of time. Whatever nonsense Cooper was getting up to just ended up putting all our lives at risk. Taking us out in that damned storm, smashing up his boat, risking his own grandson! I thought I knew the man better than that.
So the lighthouse generator was a bust. Basement was smashed to pieces, some horrendous fluid spilled everywhere. Doors almost knocked off their hinges. Miss Tizard got a rather nasty burn from inspecting it, and lost a boot. Thankfully we had a bit more luck with the radio, but it conveniently enough it required Cooper’s specific assistance and even then we needed to collect some batteries from his boat. During all the fuss his boy vanished off, and I lost sight of Cooper while we were trying to find him. In my search I found that someone had set up the castle with some macabre assortment of aquatic bones, but between the castle and down to the beach I saw neither hide nor hair of them. Some of the boy’s ‘whales’, whatever they are. Certainly don’t look like whales to me.
All in all, I was glad to get the radio powered back up and call in assistance to get off that accursed rock. Miss Tizard has indeed surprised me, she’s far more practical than I’d given her credit for. With that in mind and her preexisting knowledge of the Courts, I shall have to put in a good word for her with the Society. Young Blackadder doesn’t seem to have taken the stress too well, sadly, but I still have hopes for him. None of us take our first exposure to the true nature of the world particularly well.

0500
Searched downstairs. Walls covered in strange sticky goo. Smells of sewage. Thick puddle in basement, went to test, poked and it burned. VERY CORROSIVE, BEWARE. Took skin on thumb and forefinger of right hand off. Doors smashed open again, corrosive leads towards water. Watch nr water and boot in water. Returned, tried to fix generator but crushed beyond repair. Fae giggles here. Dropped torch searching for bastard and stepped in puddle. R.I.P. Right shoe. Left boot will have to make do for now.

1600
Young captian talking to himself while prof. Went out w/ old cap. Talking to invisible friend. Fae. Name of Billy.

1820
Warned old captain. Did not believe me. Billy is old cap’s dead dog, told young captain he got taken by small folk. What a boob. If child talking to dog, has deal been met already? Boy wants dog back, they give dog back, but dead so not really?

1900
Prof and old captain believe we have grey caps, green caps and yellow caps. Unsure on yellow caps, what are they tricking? Are wales tricks? Or dog? This whole mess?

2000
Searched upstairs. Found radio. No batteries. Need from ship. Young captain missing. Old captain ran and also missing. Prof searching island. Hypnotist and I checking building.

2100
Checked basement 1st. Found body in pool. Adult. Ran to get water to wash off and try to save. Came back and Hypnotist is blind. Didn’t believe I was shining torch at him and candle was working. Body too far gone now. Saved hypnotist from losing hand in puddle. Took him to 2nd floor bedroom. Safe on bed, searched around. Found letter to family on mainland. Lighthouse keepers?

2300
Prof returned. Thinks its all a trick by old captain. I am only one making sense here. Went up to look above for others. Went outside in middle of storm. Nearly fell. Of course. I saved the day again. Inside safe.

0010
Radio repaired. Prof contacted mainland. Will be gone at dawn. Would have preferred to fix this but perhaps when more prepared?

0800
Safe at cafe again. More scones. Going to need a lot after that. None for the others.

Days After
Sent lighthouse keepers letter, with note explaining found in lighthouse with no sign of sender. Best wishes and all.

Well shit. Monty has gotten us into a right mess now. I thought this would be a lark up to the middle of nowhere with the old boy. Maybe I could of gotten him to open up about why Benjy might have introduced us.

It started well… That Rose lady that has been following Monty around turned up and that was a riot. But then! BUT THEN! We go on this boat which winds up being dashed on the rocks. This was before Monty neglected to mention that he couldn’t sodding swim now could he. So I had to drag him to shore and let me tell you, when he talks about being made of muscle he isn’t joking, that man is like a stone. What else has happened so far? Oh yes a minor detail entirely. MONTY’S CRAZY FRIEND GOT A WOMAN KILLED ON HIS STUPID BOAT TRIP INTO THE ARSE END OF THE WORLD. But other than that this trip up north has been a lark.

Young Blackadder shows some potential but I’ll have to see what he can do in the field before I come to a decision. At the very least, I owe him a little payback after he sent Miss Tizard my way. Encountering her at the train station did little to improve my mood; especially when it transpired that my coach booking had been taken in error and she was able to travel with us. I did what I could to avoid her attention but I was defeated at every turn by the incompetence or outright malice of those I had to rely on.

Cooper’s boat was a ramshackle old thing and he clearly doesn’t possess the nautical nouse he believes himself to. Sadly, it was the young couple aboard that payed the price when a storm dashed the boat across some rocks away from the mainland. Thankfully this spit of rock has a lighthouse we might be able to use to call for aid but the blessed thing doesn’t seem to be operational. With luck, Blackadder, Miss Tizard and I will be able to assist the lighthouse keeper in getting it back up and running before this storm gets even worse.

The Department of Statistical Anomalies aka D.O.S.A is our new Call of Cthulhu 7E show. We’ll be broadcasting on Twitch.tv/therpglab every Monday, starting this Monday (30/01/17) at 18:30 UCT.

The year is 1923. T.E. Lawrence, a prominent member of The Society of Natural Philosophy, has recently returned from Al-Batrāʾ (The Petra) in Arabia and has brought back a miniature God Block to the Department of Occultic Statistical Anomalies. It is a secret academic department within The John Dee Royal Library, University of Oxford London Campus, London. Both the department and the society, research and validate any occultic findings academic or sociological.

The Al-Batrāʾ Godblock was created by the ancient culture of the Nabateans and possibly the rose stone has ties to their cult of the God Iblis, otherwise known as Shaitan or most commonly the Devil. The block’s influence sets to change the principles D.O.S.A was founded on and threatens the very existence of the British Isles.

Observations and Findings

The children have encountered the Unseelie Court from a young age. Exposed to potentially Whitecaps, Greencaps and Browncaps.

  • Evidence of Browncaps and Greencaps. Fae Mounds have been found in the property grounds with both household waste and flowers drained of their colour.
  • There is no physical evidence of Whitecaps

After spending some time with family and the two children in particular I noticed a curiosity in their behaviour. When discussing the Fae folk who they had befriended, each seemed to have their own personal fairy.

  • These entities would act as not only translators for the children but would guide them on what their Queen wanted them to do to make them into princesses. This idea is a regular pretext to the pact; however, the level of individual interaction is quite different to what is currently.
  • General Theory: The child, wishing to be part of the court and fae goes along with the ruse until they have made the deal. It was assumed they acted independently of this, but perhaps Whitecaps have enchanted the children. It was at this point I was struck with inspiration.
  • These whitecaps act similarly to that of the Arabian Quarin. A personal Djinn, or Jinn/ Genie. These entities would also act as personal guides, with some actively trying to corrupt their human counterpart into damnation.

I was also told that the younger child had suffered a form of scarlet fever, a notable precursor to allying with the Fae Folk. However Rose does not remember any sort of deal being struck, a fact that can be confirmed as she was unconscious throughout her illness. If her illness was cured by her sister instead making the deal, this would explain the events leading up to my departure.

The older child, Violet had begun talking of her coronation as princess. She had maintained her belief in the Fae from a young age and throughout her sister’s illness that conviction had grown stronger. I had caught her many times talking to herself, writing in an unknown script before throwing the paper into the fire. She had proclaimed that a year and a day after her sister was cured, she was to be crowned Queen of England.

Three days before I left the household, on the day decreed by Violet, she disappeared. There was no evidence that she had managed to wander off of her own accord. There was evidence of foul play and an eyewitness saw her leaving the village on foot heading into the woods with a slender figure, possibly in baggy clothes or robes.

Police investigation after I left the area has yielded little results. One or two articles of clothing of the young girl have been found in Rodborough Common but she remains a missing person. The official case is believed to be coming to a close, a suspect, a known child abductor and mentally unsound man has been arrested in connection and awaits trial.

Conclusion

Violet has been taken by Queen Mab by some unseen way. She has made some sort of deal with her in exchange for her sister’s life. We believe her actions were influenced by Whitecap Fairies. The description of them by Rose, as well as their actions and abilities align themselves with the Arabian mythology of personal genies that influence and guide humanity. No further action was taken. The family was given a contextually believable debrief and I departed. The last attached photographs show the family burying the ‘body’. I believe that over time, Rose will believe the accepted truth. Rose, however, seems to show signs that she may still be in contact or in danger but regardless seems to not believe in the currently accepted truth. Her parents ensure me they will try to find her a better way to ‘cope’ with grieving for her sister.

Future Research Proposition

Based on the findings in the enclosed files, alongside initial framework research. I, Sir William Knox believe the Fae are a descendant or a subspecies of Arabian Djinn. I request permission to research Al-Batrāʾ with archaeologist T.E.Lawrence about the possibility of this, researching the specific links between Fae Realm and Djinn.

I will be seeking research into the mysterious Greycaps. There is a theory that the Fae folk were an ancient race, perhaps elemental and prehuman. Djinni is said to have been formed alongside man. If my theory is correct then I will try to prove using extremes. As Greycaps are water based and the Djinn are generally fire based, if similarities between the two became conclusive this would change the very natural of our understanding of the world.

This leads me to my second request for a fishing boat, funding and a false identity to observe the practices of an enclave of Greycaps on St Catherine’s Island, a small tidal island linked to Tenby in Pembrokeshire, Wales. The fortification on the island is home to Redcaps, Whitecaps and Yellowcaps but given its proximity, this is the only location where Greycaps may be observed without obfuscation.

I, however, recognise the closeness of this petition in regards to the disappearances and deaths of the Vanguard of 1870 / 80s’s and the research into the Nabateans. All due process will be adhered to. If this theory proves correct these findings may shed light on those events and we will finally have our answer.

In relation to the subjects based on the actions of Ros, and the commonality of children to conflagrate memories if given the motive; I ask that the Tizard family, especially the young girl, to be monitored frequently for any further contact from the Unseelie Court.
