Roll: 5, perfect good as new 

Dear Diary,

    I got my first client today! It wasn’t… it wasn’t what I was expecting. It was one of the Oracle Witches from up north. I didn’t think they were interested in our work, but she said she had consulted the cards and her pendulum and all the other oracles stuff and they all led to me. 

    Only it wasn’t a body she wanted back. I, uh, think she misunderstood what exactly we do. We’re here to vanquish Death, not  just all endings. I guess she got confused? Death is only one sort of ending and there’s no reason why it needs to exist. I mean, a life ending doesn’t mean that the person has to “go away forever.” It’s just a new beginning! Death is the opposite of that! It’s finite. 

Anyway, she wanted a snowman. Yeah. I don’t know how she got snow this far down south without melting. Maybe some fairy magics?  I heard that was the witches’ deal.  But anyway. I had to remove an “ending” and make it come back. Like unmelt the snow. 

Honestly. I didn’t think it would work, but I set about doing the usual stuff, complete with the plate breaking and everything. And it worked! It unmelted and was as cold as it should be!

I guess this stuff really does work. Or at least maybe her oracle magic helped??? I don’t know how that stuff works. 

That’s all for today I guess. 


Game 4: Cheap as Dirt 

Revivification Ritual

  1. Earthenware Plate (ask potter for rejects that you can buy cheap)
  2. Tin Whistle that plays 6 notes (can be used twice before unusable, works just as well as silver)
  3. Dirt from the Deceased’s Grave (any dirt that’s been touching the corpse for longer than 10 min will do)
  4. A memory of their greatest achievement (make sure to call beforehand and let them know it won’t work otherwise!!!!)
  5. 1 pt of Blood (ask the butcher, tell him it’s for soup or sausage!)
  6.  6 tbsp of Distilled Water (just boil tap water, it’s FINE)

Game 5: At Death’s Door

What happens when work arrives at your door? 

Roll: 5, An Animate Object 

Roll: 5, Affection 

Dear Diary, 

    Um, the snowman came to visit today. It had a note for me, from the witch. She said it was lonely and wanted to visit and as long as it left by 6 it would be fine??? 

    Is it a pet??? Is it a child? I… I mean it's fine???? It's not hurting anything or anyone and it just kinda follows me around. It’s too cold to give it a hug but it likes pats on the head every once and a while. 

    This is just super weird. I mean this feels like a breach of client/contractor etiquette. I’m not her babysitter or her friend. But I am worried that if it doesn’t get what it wants something bad may happen. They didn’t cover this in school. 

Fuck actually they kinda did the opposite? Now that I’m thinking about it, they really wanted more people to join up. They really wanted people to attend  the ceremonies and stuff too, like I knew it was sort of a religious college but... I should check my credentials in the morning now that I think about it. 

Anyway the snowman left when it was 6 right on the dot. I don’t know how it knew that but it just got up, scratched at the door like a cat with its little twig arms, and I let it out into the street. 

I watched it go down the road. Most people just avoided it or stared. I hope no one attacks it.
