The Oracle
The Oracle

Before asking her what to do

You open the door to the dilapidated tenement building and walk up the stairs to the fourth floor.

Outside her apartment door, a blind bum winks at you. You think. It's hard to tell behind the sunglasses.

You hesitate for a moment and then knock on the door. A young woman answers, smiling.

She leads you through the living room. A group of children sit on the floor in the center of the room, playing marbles without touching the marbles.

The woman says "She'll see you now." and gestures toward the kitchen door. You step through it.

When you enter the kitchen, a kindly-looking old woman apologizes to you for burning you. You're confused for a moment, and then she hands you a cookie and you take a bite of it, burning the roof of your mouth on the still molten chocolate chips. "How did you..."

She just smiles.


"What should I do, Oracle?"

She smiles. "You'll have to figure that out for yourself. I will tell you this, though. I don't remember leaving any spoons in <location>.

"Uh... okay."

Don't give her a spoon

You don't give the Oracle a spoon. "Do you see, now?" she asks.

Weirdly... you do see.

"Now what?" you ask.

"Call your friends." she says. "There's a phone in the old Spookyraven place that should work."
