So... I finally found out what happened at the mansion while MASC was interrogating us. If they had just told us that Victor came and Slenderman was here, I'm sure we would have been a lot more understanding about our trigger happy armed escort. But no, I had to find out from Victor's blog, or I guess Samuel's now.
I don't even know how many MASC agents died in the fight, but it sounds like a lot. Yeesh, no wonder they've been so paranoid. This is where communication would be VERY helpful, Brood! All I can do is shake my head here. This is idiocy... military intelligence at its finest.
In other news... the thing those guards were shooting at, I overheard some of them talking, though they clammed up as soon as they noticed me. Hard to keep secrets when there are thirteen (oh... lucky us, just realized :/ ) people in a space that used to seem bigger. I guess they figured the construction would mask their talking, but I heard enough to come to the conclusion that what they saw... was Shadowchild.
And if she's here, what's going on with my niece?
Well, I'm going to confront Brood with both items and see what he says. Wish me luck.
