Part 1 :: The Dark Bidding

Wealthy occultist, Estelle Thorpe's latest auction win is an unusual one to say the least: a collection of sordid sundries that could unlock great secrets... or a Pandora's Box of horror. To solve the paranormal mysteries she's uncovered, Ms. Thorpe has assembled an unlikely crew of curiosity-seekers: Moses; mountain man turned renowned novelist, Cherry; a floozie who's more than she seems, Oswald; a hobo king, Estelle's cunning assistant Anjana, and Kenneth; a notorious gambler.

Will they be able to glean answers from the shadows looming over New England or will they succumb to the maddening call of the Terrible Secret of Lot X?
