Kasmeer Meade

It's time to end this nightmare.

Dear <Character name>,

Marjory and I have reached an impasse. For weeks, we've delivered injection after injection straight into the toxic heart of the Tower of Nightmares, but still it continues pulsing and corrupting the Kesssex Hills region.

We're not really sure what we're missing, but with Scarlet anything is possible. We urgently need you here with us. I've set up a mesmeric portal that will take you straight to us at the tower's heart chamber.

Please, come quickly.

—Lady Kasmeer Meade
