Last night, I finally managed to gain access to the Facebook group Josh Rallus has been running. If whoever is in control of it now is to be believed, Josh is dead. The group name has been changed to "THEOBITUARIES". A few recent posts:
1600 AM -- 03-29-11"
08-22-94 -- 03-27-11"
"MAY THEIR PIECES NEVER REST."
And the group description was changed.
I haven't had time to read through the chat logs and everything else, but between what I did read and what I've learned through Cowboy Ghostie's own research (thank you for this) I feel like I have a handle on what's going on.
The Angel's Game mentioned in the notes received by the group is some kind of battle between supernatural forces... forces which appear to lack bodies of their own, and must thus inhabit the bodies of humans, possessing them. The names refer to:
DWELLER - The being who inhabited Josh, left him messages during the times he blacked out, and occasionally took control of him in the facebook chat with others.
KEEPER - Josh Rallus, now deceased.
CREATURE - I must assume, the Slender Man.
OTHER - Unsure
DREAMER - Alana, now deceased.
COLLECTOR - Unsure
Neither the Josh nor the Dweller was in control of the account last night. The entity whose identity I'm unsure of claimed that following Alana's death, Josh attempted suicide. The Dweller tried to keep him alive, but failed, and both of them died as a result. The name of the facebook account was then changed to "Emet Rotter".
Who is this entitiy? And who is the entity in control of Austin, acting as bag head? I would assume OTHER and COLLECTOR, but I don't know which.
Going back through my inbox, something else occurred to me. Back in January, Josh contacted me looking for help. I sent both him and Austin information that I felt might help them. Josh's response was normal. Austin's... I'll just post it.
"The other two won't listen to me. This thing is hideous, efficient. It speaks to me sometimes. It tells me things. Terrible things. Haha. It knows so much. It wants to consume. HAHAHAHAHAHA"
Perhaps Austin isn't inhabited by an entity at all. Perhaps he's a proxy under the Slender Man's influence. His dress and behavior patterns are consistent with it. I never heard back from Austin again after this.
Emet. We share a moniker, but I know not if you are with or against us. I will be watching closely.
There's also been major developments with Zeke Strahm's investigation of Damien O'Connor's case. Too much for me to handle right now. Going to immerse in school work to stop thinking about it for a while.
It's Alex Kralie's birthday. I feel like something might happen tonight.
