Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Terms heard on the SBox: “field”, “Georgetown”, “run away”

Pinckney Mansion Site: EMF readings: 10mG, 14mG and 23mG.

Terms heard on the SBox: “in a castle” (this was a mansion), “there’s only three”, “there’s no way to trust”, “sacrifice yourself”, “five”, “lame” (we determined that this could be a possible reference to Thomas Pinckney who was shot in his left leg during the Battle of Camden), “stop, dammit”, “let’s go”.

Philadelphia Alley: Terms from the SBox: “fifty” (didn’t find the “nine”, but Dr. Ladd lived at 59 Church Street), “losers” and “gun” (both terms loosely related to dueling).

Powder Magazine: Terms from the SBox: “my mother died” (direct relation to Anne Bonny’s mother, Mary Brennan, who died shortly after they arrived to Georgetown), “finally found you”, “back to Philadelphia” (we were walking in the direction to Philadelphia Alley as we moved through the Powder Magazine space), “because I wanted” ( a direct answer to asking Anne why she married a pirate), “shame on you”, “Will” and “William” (this is the name of Anne Bonny’s father, William Cormac), “around the fortress” (at the Powder Magazine where it held gun powder for seven different wars and one rebellion).
