The Message in the Box
Dandy, hope you enjoyed this puzzle box, I stole it from some demon trader. Real ugly thing too. I've got a list of tasks I need you to do for the next mark.
Go to the street near the bridge - you know the one - and lay out some old rags and some pig's blood. Should give the next mark a right old scare. Then you should take Ebony and Scamp with you and make some spooky noises. You know what scares these merchant types. Scraping metal (use a saucepan), chittering (get Scamp to do his ferret impression, he's rubbish but it's weird sounding) and the standard screaming.
This mark seems a little tougher than the last lot, so be extra creepy and make sure you leave them clothes in the right shape. They gotta look like someone was wearing them before they was eaten, not like someone laid out some clothes on the floor for someone to put on. We don't want old Mrs Potterington washing them for us again (note to self, ask Granny if she's got any more pig's blood spare).
With any luck this next mark will be even better pickings than the last one.
