In the gruesome finale of the scenario, the desperate students descend to the depths of the college, uncovering a burning truth about the former sanatorium and the ghosts who haunt it.

We rejoin the investigators mid-ritual, chanting and gesticulating in a circle around Grossman’s vile journal, waiting for the dawn and hoping they’ll succeed in keeping his demonic spirit at bay - not to mention hoping that their anonymous tip was enough for the police to thwart the foreign minister’s assassination.
