"A Tale of Birds Without a Voice"

First flew the greedy Pelican,
Eager for the reward,
White wings flailing.

Then came a silent Dove,
Flying beyond the Pelican,
As far as he could.

A Raven flies in,
Flying higher than the Dove,
Just to show that he can.

A Swan glides in,
To find a peaceful spot,
Next to another bird.

Finally out comes a Crow,
Coming quickly to a stop,
Yawning and then napping.

Who will show the way,
Who will be the key,
Who will lead to
The silver reward.

Chapter 3:
"Manifestation of Delusions"

...Poltergeists are among these.
Negative emotions, like fear,

worry, or stress manifest
into external energy with
physical effects.

Nightmares have, in some cases,
been shown to trigger them.

However, such phenomena do not
appear to happen to just anyone.

Although it's not clear why,
adolescents, especially girls,
are prone to such occurrences.

The Hunter and the Lizard

Location: On the center table in the Library, Nightmare School 2F.

Hearing this, the hunter
armed with bow and arrow said,
"I will kill the lizard."

But upon meeting his opponent,
he held back, taunting,
"Who's afraid of a reptile?"

At this, the furious lizard
hissed, "I'll swallow you up
in a single bite!"

Then the huge creature
attacked, jaws opened wide.

This was what the man wanted.
Calmly drawing his bow, he shot
into the lizard's gaping mouth.

Effortlessly, the arrow flew,
piercing the defenseless maw,
and the lizard fell down dead.

In order of age.

Awaiting them, the frenzied
Uproar, the feast of death!

Lisa's diary

Location: On the floor in the storage room past the strange keypad door in the Ophiel hall, Nowhere 1F, after viewing the scene with Lisa.

Ask doctor to let me quit being
in charge of that patient.

It's too weird.

Still alive,
but with wounds that won't heal.

Told the doctor I quit.
Won't work at that
hospital anymore.

The room is filled with insects.

Even with doors
and windows shut
they get in to spite me.

To the hospital...

Feeling bad.
Need to throw up.
But nothing comes out.
Vomiting only bile.

Blood and pus flow from
the bathroom faucet.

I try to stop it,
but it won't turn off.

Need drug.

Help me...

Tape Transcripts

This contains a full transcript for the one recorded tape that is found in in the game as an item.

Location: Found on the table in the first right room in the second hallway of the basement's secret basement, Nightmare Hospital B2. Can be partially-viewed with mostly static by using the VCR in room 302 of Nightmare Hospital, or fully-viewed in the similar room in the Phaleg hall, Nowhere 1F.

When played in the hospital: snow fills the screen and a female voice is heard on and off through very thick static.

When played in the Nowhere: an image of Lisa at the end of a table with her head down and hands held near her face. We hear her voice.

What is it?

Still has an unusually
high fever...

Eyes don't open...
getting a pulse...

But just barely breathing.

Her skin is all charred!

Even when I change
the bandages,
the blood and pus just start
oozing through!

Why...
What is keeping that child alive?

I... can't stand it
any longer...

I won't tell a soul
...promise.

So please...
