Just two days into your new job and you're already on your first investigation. Keep your eyes and ears open as you walk the waterfront, trying to determine where your vampire pack is hiding.
Date: November 15, 1904
Place: New York City
You start your search at the tunnel construction site along the East River and walk south. The waterfront is bustling with the commerce of ships and fishermen and oyster men, and initially it's hard for you to imagine a vampire pack finding a quiet place here. But as you walk, you begin to notice a myriad assortment of hiding places. Even though you are under strict orders not to engage any vampires, you can't help sticking your flashlight into some dark corners. After several hours of exploring, you've narrowed the list of potential vampire hideouts down to three places:
The station was built years ago for a railroad project that never happened. An architecturally impressive structure, it sits on a weedy vacant lot and has fallen into a state of disrepair.
The merchant vessel Ticonderoga has been parked at the dock for several months after the company that owned it went out of business. It has been stripped bare by looters. A man at the neighboring dock told you that he recently heard noises coming from the hold of the ship.
No one seems to know who this barge at the end of the dock belongs to, though one dock worker told you that two days ago he saw the face of a man in one of the barge's portholes.
