The Talking Board at the Taylor House
The talking board is a objet d’art of uncertain history. Given the evidence surrounding its arrival, we can surmise the following:
- The board resided in the attic of The Taylor Home, packed away.
- During her postmortem homecoming, Eugenia Taylor fetched it from the attic and set it up in Clara Taylor’s old room, probably because that was the closest place over the “magical pipeline” that Troy Valjean found in the home.
- Sigils on the board indicate a connection to the Silver Twilight.
Who Aunt Eugenia was attempting to contact using the board (presuming that was her intent) is unknown.
The Investigators have used the board to speak to spirits; so far they have contacted two spirits, one believed to be Douglas Ryder‘s (great?) grandmother, the other one Clara Taylor’s mother, Alice Taylor. However, the ‘spirit’ also declared itself to be a single entity, confusing the issue.
