+-- (_/ PARTMENT WORLD - PLOT SUMMARY ------------------------ 2.16 --+
Henry wakes up in his apartment, but things are not normal, the walls are red
as if covered in blood, and the floors are made of a metal mesh. Eileen is
there as well as a mysterious man knocking on her door, room 303. Henry
begins by going into room 301 where he finds a diary sitting on the table:
"The last few months, Joseph, the guy next door
to me who gave me that rare porn magazine, looks
like he's been working super hard. He said he
found another rare one, he'd give it to me but he
hasn't shown his face around much lately. He
said he was a journalist and he is always
investigating stuff. But I think something
strange is going on with him. He's been shut in
his apartment and I can hear all these weird
noises coming from there.
July 1 - Mike
Oh my beautiful Rachael, What's with the note on
the red paper? I thought you'd written a note
back to me... But I guess maybe it was somewhere
else... He took it along with my clothes. Those
were my best clothes.
July 2 - Mike"
Beside the diary is a piece of red paper with nothing written on it. Henry
decides that he will stick it under room 302's door (his room.) In the
bedroom Henry finds a magazine article lying on the bed there:
"Teaching Despair: "Wish House"
"Wish House," an orphanage on the outskirts of
Silent Hill. But behind its false image is a
place where children are kidnapped and
brainwashed. Wish House is managed by the
"Silent Hill Smile Support Society," a charity
organization sometimes called "4S." It's true
that 4S is a well-respected charity that "takes
in poor children without homes and raises them
with hope." But at its heart, it is a heathen
organization that teaches its own warped dogma in
lieu of good religious values. Mr. Smith (temp),
who lives near "Wish House," had this to say:
"Sometimes at night I can hear their weird
prayers and the sounds of [children] crying. I
went there to complain one time, but they ran me
right out. Since then, it hasn't changed a
bit." In fact, this reporter was refused
admission when he attempted to take photographs
in the facility. What exactly do the folks at
"Wish House" have to hide? During my
investigations, I was able to discover, however,
a suspicious-looking round concrete tower which
appears to be part of their facilities.
Unfortunately no one was willing to tell us what
the tower was used for. But it seems unlikely
that is has anything to do with the business of
raising orphans. It may in fact be a prison, or
a secret place of worship. The cult religion
that operates "Wish House" is known by the locals
simply as "The Order." It's a religion that is
deeply interwoven with Silent Hill's history.
But its worshippers' fervent belief that they are
among the elite "chosen people" has a dark and
dangerous side. I intend to contine my
investigation of "Wish House" and the cult behind
it. I've always believed that "telling the whole
truth" and showing the children the true path, is
out most important duty.
After picking up a couple of keys Henry heads for his own room. In the
distance he can see the young child, the one who is supposedly Walter
Sullivan, banging on his door. As he approaches the child disappears. There
is a red piece of paper under his door, He places his piece of red paper
under there as well. In the next room, the long haired man who was knocking
on Eileen's door is sitting on the stairs and holding a doll. He says that
miss Galvin (Eileen) gave it to him, she was younger than him back then. He
offers it to Henry, who is free to take it if he wants. Down at the bottom of
the stairs are a number of lockers, Henry uses the key that he found to open
one and a number of letters fall out. All of them are love letters, from Mike
to Rachael. Henry decides now to go back through the hole to his apartment.
Two red pieces of paper are stuck under his door just like he saw before:
"It was four years ago that they discovered the
body with "12/21" carved into it. Right away I
had this terrible feeling and couldn't stop
shaking. The victim had been murdered six months
earlier, but Walter had been dead for seven
years, having committed suicide three years
before the murder. The police think it's a
copycat crime and are calling it the Sullivan
Case Round Two. But something about it bothered
"I figured out the riddle behind the numbers.
"01121" is actually "01/21." In other words, 1
out of 21. So Walter was planning on killing 21
people...? But he never finished the job. He
was convicted for the murders of Billy and Miriam
Locane, the 7th and 8th victims. Afterwards, he
committed suicide in his jail cell. The grisly
mass murder of 10 people shocked the world and
came to be known as the "Walter Sullivan Case."
There are two big puzzles here. The first is:
What was the motive for the murders? The second
is: Why did he kill himself before completing his
task? Was he simply insane...?
Looking out the peephole Henry sees the long haired man staring back through
the peephole at him, until the man walks away. There are a total of nineteen
bloody handprints on the wall. Back in the hole again, Henry finds the
superintendent's room. There is a diary on his bedside table that reads:
"The red box seems even stranger today. It's
giving off a terrible smell. It's disgusting,
but I just can't throw it away. It must have
been around 30 years ago. That young couple was
living in the apartment, but one day they just
suddenly disappeared. Ran off just like thieves
in the night. I don't know why. It must have
been money troubles, or maybe they got themselves
into some kind of danger. The problem came after
that. They left their newborn baby when they
took off. I even found the umbilical cord. I
called the ambulance right away and I heard the
baby survived, but I don't know what happened to
him. Although a few years later, I often saw a
young kid hanging around the apartment. One day
he just stopped coming by. But now that I think
of it, I'll be he was that abandoned baby. It's
a horrible story. Abandoning a newborn baby...
That all happened in Room 302... And the
umbilical cord I found there... Well I still
can't get myself to throw it away."
Henry comes across Riachard Braintree's room as well. The electric chair
where Richard died is there, and the revolver he was carrying is sitting on
the chair. With nothing else to check out, Henry crams all the red paper
under his door in the Apartment world and returns to his real Apartment.
There are now four pieces or red paper and torn red paper under the door:
...protect you...ith love,
"I lost the key to Eileen Galvin's room. I've
gotta find it and bring it back. Let me think...
The last place I saw it was..."
"Oh yeah, I had a really wicked headache that day
and just collapsed on the bed. Maybe if I look
near the bed in my room -302's bedroom- I'll find
it. I get headaches every day now. It's
terrible. What am I going to do?
"I picked up the key that Eileen from Room 303
must have dropped. I thought I'd return it but
she wasn't home. I guess I'll give it to the
In his room, like the letter describes, Henry finds the Doll Key, the key to
Eileen Galvin's room, Room 303. In the Apartment World again, Henry uses the
key to open Eileen's door and hears a scream. Inside the little boy is there
and Eileen is on the floor, bloody, with the number "20/21" carved into her
back. She says "thanks" to the kid and asks "did you ever find your mommy?"
before collapsing on the ground. Henry wakes up in his room to hear sirens.

Through the window Henry sees an ambulane pulling out of the apartment parking
lot, presumably with Eileen. Looking through the peephole in the wall into
Eileen's room you can hear a conversation between two cops. They are talking
about Eileen's murder, saying she's not going to make it. They call it the
Walter Sullivan Case Round Three, but since they never caught the guy behind
Round Two it could be the same one, or perhaps, the same guy for all three.
The pink bunny (Silent Hill 3) sitting in Eileen's room now faces the
peephole, rather than away from it. Under the door there are two things, one
piece of red paper and another thing. The piece of red paper reads:
"I don't think I can protect myself. He's truly
insane. I can'thold on any longer. His power
can't be measured. I was so scared today that I
sealed off the back of the storage room. I
wonder if Eileen Galvin is okay. She has no idea
what's going on... But she's in danger
The other object under the door was something called the Succubus Talisman.
The hole in the bathroom has been totally covered over. Henry finds in his
laundry room, some weird image on the wall. With the power of the Succubus
Talisman it turns into four indentations and some writing in red:
"After he did the Ritual of the Holy Assumption,
other worlds began to force their way into his
universe and it began to swell horribly. But his
universe is different than ours -- it has limits.
And in the limits of that universe, he rules as a
king. And in the deepest part of his kingdom is
This causes four indentations to appear, each labelled with names that match
those of the placards Henry found before each of the corpses. Placing them
into the wall, a new hole appears in the laundry room of his apartment.

Henry wakes up in some kind of hospital room. The long haired man is there
covered in blood with his hands inside the cut open chest of a woman, white as
a ghost all over her body. He quickly runs out of the room before the man can
do anything. He finds Eileen's handbag lying on the ground, and in the
reception room there is a large whiteboard with X-rays and photographs of
Eileen's many injuries. There's also a nurse's memo sitting on the table:
"I lost Eileen Galvin's hospital room key. She
was a patient brought in with severe injuries. I
wonder if I left it in one of the other gospital
rooms. I really hope not..."
Upstairs in one of the rooms, Henry finds Eileen. She seems to have survived
the attack, her arm is broken and the numbers are still carved into her back,
just more faint. He explains to her that he found this hole in his apartment
and he saw people getting killed in weird worlds, including her. There was a
child with her. She says she remembers now, the child saved her from the man
with the coat, she was getting ready to go to a party. She asks Henry to take
her with him. They go back down to the first floor and enter the hole.

Henry wakes up in his apartment and something feels odd. Eileen has not come
with him, and the air seems somewhat heavier. In game terms, at this point
Henry is no longer healed automatically when he comes back to the apartment.
He walks out into the living room, the ceiling fan is now broken and lying
against the coffee table, it has fallen down. There is also a red envelope
under his door with a key and a note written on it:
"You've seen that horrible world as well... That
horrible nightmare. But if you get sucked into
it, it's not just a nightmare. Don't get lost in
there. If you get pulled in, you'll be killed.
But there's still hope. Maybe this small key
will guide you. If you've seen the door with the
placard set in it, look on the other side of the
door. Then keep going down. To the deepest part
of him. And look for the ultimate Truth.
July 20 - Joseph"
Three more pieces of red paper sit behind Henry's bookshelf. They read:
"Walter Sullivan did kill himself. He died in
his prison cell of blood loss after he stabbed
himself in the neck with a spoon. His body was
buried in a cemetery just outside his hometown of
Silent Hill in an unmarked grave. After that,
his name became famous all over the world and it
looked like his string of mass murders was
finished at 10 out of 21. But 3 years later,
they found a corpse that had "12/21" carved into
it. The corpse was from six months earlier. In
other words, the person was killed two and a half
years after Sullivan committed suicide. The MO
was exactly the same as Sullivan's. Except for
one thing. All 10 of SuUllivan's victims were
found with their hearts cut out and their chest
wounds sewn together expertly with thread. On
the other hand, the "12/21" victim still had
their heart. Naturally the police think it's a
copy cat and are proceeding on that basis. But
they haven't made any progress and recently
discovered victim number 13. This corpse also
had their heart intact. The police still havn't
even identified a suspect. I've got a working
hypothesis. Very few people knew the details of
the original crimes and would be able to copy
Sullivan's MO so precisely. First I'll head to
Silent Hill... To the graveyard near that
beautiful little lake. Maybe I'll find the
"How long has it been since I left this room? I
can't tell if it's been days or hours... But
during that time they've found the body of
"14/21." I've been having hallucinations lately.
I think I'm losing my mind.
(No date written)."
"The weather that day was very strange. Even
though I avoided the earlier storm, there was
still a thick fog clinging to everything.
Fortunately, that allowed me to avoid being seen
and get right to work. The police are still
stubbornly acting as if it's just a copycat case.
So I figured things probably hadn't been touched
here. But I was wrong. I should have come
sooner. The cemetery was in such bad condition
that it was almost sad. The storm must have
raised the sea level. Anywaym that's how it was
when I found Walter Sullivan's grave.
(The diary is pretty damaged around this point
and I can't read anymore...)
I'm still in shock... There was no body in the
grave... And on top of that, written on the
coffin were the numbers "11/21"...
With that Henry goes back into the laundry room and proceeds through the hole.
