It's been so long since I began playing that I really wanted to review the Dark Manor storyline and haven't been able to find a thread of that nature. So I started new manors to record the dialogue, which I'd like to share here, if it's okay.

To keep the thread less cluttered and for continuity, I'd appreciate it if readers refrain from posting here and send me a PM if you find errors or want to communicate with me. Thank you.

__Aaraphinas Aerie and 1 Aarachnid Rd

ETA: Note to new players: With the updated version on 10/15/2014, most of the following dialogue from the first chapter have been removed. I leave this dialogue here unchanged for those who want a more complete story and characters with some character.

Ellesmere (Ellie) = blonde, Sterling’s 2nd wife
Yvette = brunette, Sterling’s 1st wife
Sterling = your uncle, from whom you inherited the manor
Voodoo man = acquaintance of Sterling
Lawyer = manages finances of Deveraux estate
Swamp man = Sterling before he is cured
Geisha = ghost who knew the captain of the Houqua
Drake = shady salvage operator

Ellie: Oh, did I scare you? Most people can’t see ghosts!
Yvette: Her face scares me, too. See if you can collect the ectoplasm holding us here, and we’ll be free of her.
[Click on object]
Yvette: You’re a natural. You must be Sterling’s heir.
Ellie: Let’s see if you have his touch. Get the ghost goo off the other items in here.
[Complete HOS in trolley]
Yvette: You’re definitely my late husband’s heir. His mansion is now yours.
[Scene changes to manor]
Yvette: Well, we’re free of this train, but not this Dixieland trollop. She’s my runner-up, your uncle’s second wife.
Ellie: What “starter wife” means is, we seem to be trapped here together. But you can set us free.
Yvette: You’ll need a lot more ectoplasm to free us. Let’s head to the fortune teller’s wagon. It’s covered in it.
