The damp stone tunnel seems to stretch on for miles, lit only by the dim torch held aloft by the brave adventurer. The adventurer is also holding an Elvish sword in his other hand, though the man has a habit of defeating his foes with clever tricks rather than through combat, but one can never be too careful. Suddenly, a gust of wind comes rushing from behind him, snuffing out the torch and leaving the man in total darkness.
"YOU HAVE BEEN EATEN BY A GRUE"
Adam shrugs at the two tone green and black monitor. He knows now that the real world holds much greater wonders then anything he could find in some computer game. Besides, the library needs to upgrade to Windows 3.1 anyway, they need to get with the times.
Adam was a fairly fit man, lightweight but definitely has some muscle on him. He's dressed in a grunge outfit, and sits at the public computer in Queens Library at Court Square. Which, unbeknownst to most residents, happens to house the cities largest public collection of books on the paranormal. Well, public to those who know how to open the false wall that conceals it.
Adam makes his way down to the paranormal section, hidden away in the basement on the far end of the library from the computers. He spots Tessa, next to a cart full of books to be re-shelved. She picks up a book and glances at it's title, then lets it go and it just seems to float to it's location on the shelf.
Tessa is mixed race with lighter olive skin, heavy freckles, and curly red hair that she usually wears up in a pony tail. Her eyes are green. She's short with an average body type and prefers clothes that are semi stylish but comfortable.
Without even a greeting Adam immediately launches into questions. "Hey, so are there dwarves? Like in Lord of the Rings? Do they fight with elves a lot? I mean... there are elves right?"
Tessa glances up from her work annoyed. "Great, just what I wanted for the last half hour of my shift, distractions. Look, you want answers, help re-shelve these." She gestures to a small stack of what looks to be the thickest and heaviest books on the cart.
Not long after the two start to make a dent in the pile of books, they hear the chime that means someone has opened the fall wall to the paranormal section. The pair looks around to see a woman sheepishly poking her head into the doorway. She looks to be in her late 30's or early 40's, dressed very warmly to combat the early February chill outside. She seems very nervous and out of place.
"Uh... hi", she speaks with a heavy southern accent. Tessa turns to her and she continues. "I was told that I might be able to find some... information here. Our building seems to be having a bit of a..." she looks down at the floor, like she doesn't believe what's she's about to say "We're having a ghost problem."
