An elegant stone building with a central dome on the top floor. The rooms have star charts and stuff hanging from the walls. There are no lights, and the chambers smell... like chemicals. Faintly. This place hasn't been used for a long time.

"My uncle was the last person to use this place. He was a chemist, and when my father had had enough of him getting spills on the tables at the lab, he moved his work here. In the end, he went mad, or so they claim. That he heard voices."

"If you ask me, sounds like schizophrenia. But let's not be too quick to dismiss him as a madman. As a man of science, he may have had an explanation. Let''s look around."

"He said the observatory... spoke to him. Told him what to mix together in his chemicals. Ended up saving a lot of lives with it, but there was also a major ethics violation. And then he used his chemicals to outrun the police, ended up breathing in the fumes, and died."

"Hmm...well one way or another, I'm sure we'll solve that mystery today. Do you know if there's a power switch we can flip?"

"Let me see... Hm." She spends a minute looking around the wall for a switch. "It seems not. Maybe there's a problem with the power supply."

"Well there has to be a generator somewhere. Possibly a backup in the basement. They couldn't have built a place like this with no power supply."

Basel hands Caroline a torch, and she finds the stairs to the basement.

"Excellent, let's see what's down there. Hopefully more than dust and cobwebs..."

Sadly, there is little more than dust and cobwebs in the first room. However, a door leads to a small cylindrical closet with lots of buttons on the walls.

"I wonder what these do... It'd be unwise to press them at random." As Caroline steps into the room, however, a broom that was propped against the inner wall falls down, pressing several of the buttons.

The light turns on, and the sound of scraping stone above catches Caroline's attention.

"Lucky you."

Caroline looks around in confusion.

Cave looks up, seemingly confused but then he gets an idea. "Either we've both gone mad, or our 'mad scientist' wasn't crazy after all. I'd be willing to bet on the latter."

"Gambling really isn't the best habit, you know. Anyways, come on up and introduce yourselves before I get bored."

"I'm Caroline Owen, the owner of this observatory," Caroline proclaims.

"Nice to meet you, Caroline Owen. You were named after your grandmother, who lived in this observatory for several years. She would have loved to meet you. But now it's just me. What a shame."


In the dome, there's a giant spinning yellow orb which seems to be the speaking entity. The lights are on now, giving the whole place a much more comfortable feel.

"Business? Interesting. You know what, I like you two, so I'll help you. That door over there is a secret chamber, where Caroline would tinker away with chemicals. Her husband was the astronomer, she was the chemist. Their son inherited the love for chemistry, as it were, and made some nice discoveries before dying horribly."

"What always baffled me was why they'd preserve the mind of the toxicology researcher and not the astronomer in this observatory."

"I was. Long ago. But it was only the mind that was preserved; the soul had a relatively normal lifespan."

"Wonderful. I'll need to calibrate the aperture of the telescope, though."

"The aperture self-calibrates. That's one of the main things I'm here for."
