  • THE ARKHAM CRIER: AROUND TOWN with Harvest Wheatly

    [OOC date: 22 April 2018]

    ARKHAM POLICE RAID BASEMENT LABORATORY!

    by Harvest Wheatly, Arkham Crier Journalist

    Last night, Police Chief Ray Stuckey, along with several hand-picked sapient bipeds, raided the basement laboratory of Wilfred Carter, an Arkham hardware store owner and amateur inventor.

    Mr. Carter, according to Chief Stuckey, has been performing electrical experiments in the basement of his Pickman Street home at night. The experiments, said the Chief, have been drawing large quantities of electricity from the Arkham power grid, resulting in numerous blackouts over the last two months.

    "The crazy b--- went and done it now: he burnt out half the g--- local switching station," said Chief Stuckey as his uniformed bipeds hauled various pieces of glowing equipment from Carter's basement laboratory. "We got 'Sparks' Wilson from the Arkham Power Authority to take a look at everything, and he said that Carter must have been trying to pull in half the electricity of Massachusetts."

    Mr. Carter, a longtime resident of Arkham, was not allowed to comment, but one of the bipeds who participated in the raid was overheard to say, "That Carter, he just can't leave anything alone. If it sparks, he thinks it's his. And -- snakes alive! -- how he went on about dimensions and portals and wormholes between universes...whatever the h--- that means. Guy should be in Larkin's nuthouse!"

    The Crier has in fact determined that Mr. Carter is currently being kept under heavy sedation at the Larkin Institute because of what Dr. Larkin describes as "extreme agitation".

    "He keeps going on about dogs," said an orderly, who did not wish to be named. "'Hounds,' he keeps saying. Says he wants to stay away from any corners or edges. But just how you stay away from corners or edges in a square room is something I'd like to know."


    [Correction: The Arkham Crier wishes to apologize for Miss Wheatly's quaint turns of phrase: the "sapient bipeds" to which she refers should be recognized as the fine police officers they most certainly are. --Charlotte Larabie, Editor in Chief]
