|GM Dark Shadows|
My friend, my dreams have been strange as of late. Yes, I know, we have spoken of my dreams many times over the years, but these dreams are vivid, so much more vivid than the ones I described to you in the past. I am beginning to believe that when I dream, I am not merely dreaming, but traveling. Often to dark places... I have been journaling for months about these things that I have seen. Much of it will seem like fanciful fiction to you. To many perhaps. Maybe it is these lands so infused with darkness and negative energy from the centuries under the yoke of the Whispering Tyrant that my dreams are often of the dead, the undead. Much of it connected to the past of Ustalav. A past I believe may go farther back than anyone has ever suspected. I believe I will need help, more help than Kendra can provide. I need you my friend to come to me. I… I can say no more in this letter.
Your friend, Doctor Rudolph van Richten
