Appearance Transcript
Elderwood Palace Lodge - Historic Plaque The historic Elderwood Palace Lodge of Bright Falls

This building was constructed as a part of one of the early settlements in the greater Bright Falls area. Built in 1898, the building has been both in private and public use through the years and has bravely stood the test of time. In 2015, it was carefully taken apart and relocated here in downtown Bright Falls, where it was re-built into its original glory log by log. The Elderwood Palace Lodge re-opened in Bright Falls in 2016 and has served its customers faithfully ever since.

Tammy didn't want me to come. I can tell. Not like the trip is even helping. I thought getting out of the city would inspire me, but Bright Falls is just a bunch of trees and empty storefronts.

I need to find something. I'm tired of writing one act plays about how shitty the world is. I thought scathing social commentary would make me feel like a real artist, but I don't know. It's not me. I want to write something weird. Something really out there. Something authentic. But WHAT?

Fuck this town. I don't even want to get into what happened last night.

It's weird though. Sitting here in the hotel room, some pieces are starting to fall together. An idea for a new play. A space cult, burning down the galaxy in some misguided search for TBD. A lone man, an artist, wandering the stars until his destiny puts him straight in the cult's path. All black cast? A musical? A rock OPERA?

Room 108[]

Room 108 initially appears to be another locked room. After interacting with all 12 Taxidermized Deer Heads throughout Saga's story, a deer will spawn inside the Elderwood Palace Lodge. Following the deer will see it enter the now-open Room 108. Inside are many useful resources as well as several deer antlers and skulls.
