Demise of the Faithful - Chapter 11
This High Priestess of Babylon was well known for her wealth, beauty, and devotion. In a time when a dark sickness had resurfaced, she was driven by her blind faith to save her followers… and herself. But nothing could save her. Not even faith.
When she was five years old, Adiris was left on the brick-red burning steps of the Temple of Purgation at the center of Babylon. To process her shock and sorrow, she held onto the belief that the gods had a plan for her. When she came of age, she aided the high-ranking priests during the yearly worshiping of the sea-goat, the god of water and creation. She worked herself to the bone each day that followed, fulfilling her duties while taking on new ones, as she aided the priests during purification rituals.
The priests were more and more in need of assistance; a catastrophic plague had resurfaced outside the high temple walls. Within months, the priests contracted the disease and the swelling panic had to be contained. Adiris was the only one able to carry on. Tales of her wealth, beauty, and devotion began to spread across the city as quickly as the disease. Soon, Adiris’s followers called her the High Priestess of Babylon.
But her faith was tried when she showed the first signs of infection; her cough became a mix of phlegm and blood, her neck erupted in abscesses, and her four-toed foot darkened. Hoping to be saved, she kept performing the rituals. But no ritual could save her.
The Killer launches a stream of vomit a short distance in front of her, which can hit multiple Survivors and environmental objects, causing them to become infected. The Survivor’s infection will grow as they perform certain actions.
The vomit itself, when spread by the Killer on environmental objects, can infect Survivors. An infected Survivor’s only respite can be found in the Pools of Devotion, which become corrupted themselves once they are used, so be careful.
The Killer can see the auras of corrupted Pools of Devotion and can interact with them, which will power up her Vile Purge power with additional devastating effects. However, once the Killer has used a corrupted Pool of Devotion, it takes time for it to revert to its clean state. During that time, it cannot be interacted with.
Generators located furthest from the Killer are blocked by The Entity for a certain amount of time at the start of the trial. Survivors cannot repair these generators for the duration.
The cries of the unfaithful makes the Killer’s heart leap. Any Survivors that are within the Killer's terror radius while another Survivor is put into the dying state with the basic attack, will yell and reveal their location to The Killer.
The display of the power creates a whirlwind of panic that spreads throughout the land. The Killer become obsessed with one survivor. Hitting the obsession with the basic attack causes the obsession to emit terror radius.
Jane is a TV co-host. Daughter of a famous actress who was never home, Jane worked hard on establishing a name for herself.
During her senior year, she entered a national oratory contest and won first prize. Her performance attracted the attention of a radio-station that contacted her for an interview. During the live show, her natural charm and repartee impressed the staff.
After graduating college, she quit her job at the station to work for a trendy variety show. Four months later, she received a phone call from a producer who had seen reruns of the variety show. He was looking for a co-host to spark up the failing show, Quick Talk. Her honest delivery resonated with her audience and within weeks, the show’s viewership was steadily growing.
After two years, she launched a full-hour segment called The Jane Romero Show, which was broadcast nationally and covered tabooed topics, including her personal struggle with abandonment. Her success generated an increasingly demanding schedule and a growing pressure to entertain constantly.
One evening, after a two-hour TV special on divorce during which she confronted her mother in a live interview, she popped painkillers to numb the pain while driving back home. The falling night, the black ice and the blurry darkness were a bad combination… and Jane never got home.
Sharing painful experiences has the power to heal. While injured, healing a Survivor also heals you.
While standing in a locker, the perk activates. While activated, performing a rushed action to leave a locker stuns The Killer if they are standing within range. This causes Exhaustion. Head On cannot be used while Exhausted. You do not recover from Exhaustion while running.
Achieving goals boosts the Survivor’s confidence. After completing a generator, the Survivor will not leave scratch marks for a short time.
Temple of Purgation
Once believed to hold the weight of the heavens, this half-forgotten temple complex was dedicated to the cleansing of the High Priestess’s followers. Stolen from the memories of the High Priestess’s memories, the temple is now in the howling Red Forest, whose winds eroded its smooth edges. It stands as a beacon of fear, visible from all cardinal points.
