Ghost Sightings

A blog of the mysterious and weird around Emerald City, presented by your humble host, the Gray Ghost…

ITEM: An episode of the Ancient Mysteries series all about how certain fossils found in the Atlas Mountains that seem to be of giant snakes with arms and legs are actually “confusions of the fossil layer” mixing up prehistoric reptiles with impressions of the bones of prehistorical humans (maybe even the victims of said snakes).
Except we get no explanation of how those bones just happen to match up to form a fairly complete picture, with no humanoid skulls present, or how they pre-date all previously known estimates for the presence of humans in North America, to say nothing of why those fossils were immediately claimed by the Smithsonian and disappeared…

ITEM: Sinister summit at Joy’s nightclub? Everyone knows that Joy’s is the most exclusive “gentleman’s club” in Emerald City, but for what sort of “gentlemen”? I’ve got reliable information about some of the city’s Most Wanted dropping by to enjoy one of the club’s “champagne rooms” and I’m willing to bet they were not there for the ambiance or the table service…

ITEM: I know Max Mars owns a controlling interest in Emerald City (openly or behind the scenes) but still, no criminal investigation, indictment, or prosecution based on his past activities?…

ITEM: Word from the Undercity is Bobby Ray Thompson, age 60, has gone missing. Local authorities are unconcerned at best, but Thompson makes the seventh disappearance from the city’s homeless population in as many weeks. Wonder if the mayor will spin one less homeless as another city resident joining the workforce. Thompson brought back a sack full of medals from Vietnam back in 1971 and deserves a better memorial than an already forgotten police report and a blog entry…

ITEM: Another Bigfoot sighting by campers in the Elysian Forest. I’m hoping they’ll alibi the Big Guy for the attack on Col. Braeden. You all know I don’t want to see Bigfoot’s future in politics compromised in any way. Remember, if you’re reading this Big Guy, I am ready and willing to manage your campaign for mayor. We simply cannot lose!

ITEM: Recent attempts to uncover some information about some of Emerald City’s corporate masters have all come to naught. Norville Barnes at Brande Management still refuses to answer my questions, despite my reassurances that I’m both single and pretty—Hey Norville, if you can’t trust the word of an anonymous blogger, who can you trust? Colin Trafford at Redshift, on the other hand, won’t leave me alone. He tells me soon he can “show me a whole new world.” Best line I’ve heard in a while, Colin, but I’ll pass…

ITEM: More rumblings from City Hall that the mayor’s office will once again look into the possible rescission of Overlook Park to the Malory family. Questions abound. Why try to give the Malorys something they don’t want? Why do we bother voting for supposedly “pro-green” candidates in this city? And who exactly hates smiles and sunshine so much they’ve decided the Park has to go? Doesn’t the city have any other worries at all?…

ITEM: The impending Giordano meteor shower has sky-watchers of all sorts turning out and telescope sales at an all-time high (along with tinfoil for those elegant hats). So why has the city closed down some of the primer outdoor viewing spots for a combination of “maintenance” and “landscape work”? Coincidence?…

ITEM: Witch-lights seen in Malory Bay. The bright blue flashes lasted several hours before subsiding, which coincided with the appearance of hundreds of dead fish. The authorities are claiming it was a particularly vivid display of St. Elmo’s fire, but long-time sailors are claiming it was like “nothing they’ve ever seen”…
