Vespers on the Rocks
The Black Record
A Distressing Piece of Auditory Equipment
A recording of a rite purported by Dr. Cummings to be a ritual that can bestow immortality via the manipulation of one’s soul, either by transferring it to a new, presumably younger, body or by placing it somewhere safe in a manner reminiscent the magic of every evil liche and necromancer ever featured in second rate fantasy novels.
There is a second track of sound underlying the more clearly audible words of the rite. It might be possible to isolate and analyise it with some digital audio equipment, or some kind of editing rig, but the party has yet to have the opportunity to do so.
