Happy New Year!
 
This mission was intended for the 2015 Halloween Contest, but a dead computer kept it from being completed on time. (Thanks to Bikerdude for sorting that out.) After that, I took my time finishing it, so now it can be the first mission for 2016.
 

   Bridgeport had become a bit too 'hot' for me, so I was escaping to Glenham to let things cool off. A heavy snow drove me to seek cover at an inn near the River Stokes ferry. I dropped into a chair near the fire and ordered a small beer and meat pie from the innkeeper.
   For the next hour or so, I listened to the conversations around me. Mostly inane topics like the best way to remove tree stumps from a field, or what the current odds were for the Widow Shalemont taking the local Watch captain for a husband.
   One story peaked my interest, however-that of Jacob Nearfeather, the town doctor, who had vanished a week earlier. He had been complaining about a spirit running amok in his house, breaking things, and was offering a hefty purse for whoever could purge the spirit. A few had tried, but all had turned up dead after being in the house a while.
   Then Nearfeather disappeared.
   ...

 
This mission is a bit darker (light-wise) than your typical mission, so for an extra challenge, you can try leaving the lantern off.

Splendid short FM :)

Really great mission! It's beautifully constructed and dripping of atmosphere. There was a palpable sense of dread through the whole mission. The only thing I thought could have been done differently was

Still, a solid 4/5 from me! :)

Great mission Grayman!!  Loved the ghost, did you make it?? I used a save game before I went in the doctors office so I could look around more without the ghost bothering me!

Well worth the wait. It looked quite good, but in the end, it was the subtly creepy story and the interesting twist on the standard gameplay which made it particularly cool.

Efforts to download Mother Rose immediately crash TDM.  Have successfully downloaded other missions.

I've experienced crashes with Internationalized\translatable FM's. I usually retry the download and it is either already installed or downloads fine the 2nd try.

I'm pretty sure this has been an issue since 2.0 or earlier?

Problem cleared up after about a week.  In-game downloader now works for this mission.

Having a problem when I click on Mother Rose title link in the wiki fan missions page. For some reason it opens the page for Crucible of Omens: Behind closed doors, and the forum link takes me to 'This webpage is not available'
