Black Bird

It came to the players from a relatively demented man named Albert Walters who passed it to them wrapped in newspaper while they were riding back on a train after awakening in Marigold, Indiana. The bird was last seen in the Hotel Blackstone in a vision that Julius and Summerfield had when they stepped into the room. The bird was known to be in possession of Albert Walters and Cecelia Walters in their apartment on July 28th, 1921. Ricky Vanderhorn was seen entering the apartment at which time a gunfight ensued. Mr. Vanderhorn ran away and was seen by some of the Walters’ neighbors. The Walters’ diasppeared, relocating to the Blackstone Hotel where they stayed until the explosion at the Caribbean Queen took Cecelia’s life. The players consulted Lukas Neudorf about the statuette and he replied that it was “The Antenna”.

Julius took the Bird home with him that first night after returning to Chicago. Professor William Smith insisted on staying with him. Early in the morning hours Professor Smith saw a light coming out from under Julius’s door. Throwing open the door the light vanished and revealed Julius standing in front of the statuette.
