The Dark Crossroads
Tootles Secret Ingredient
Tootles’ Secret Ingredient is a small unlabeled bottle filled with the blood of The Pan. He keeps it hidden in the kitchen, inside a small cabinet next to the door to the mop room, but the latch on that cabinet is in terrible shape, and if the cabinet were bumped into….
Constantly adding The Pan’s blood to the group’s food creates a strong blood bond, and inspires an unhealthy devotion to him. It also has the unintended side effect of infecting the recipient with some of The Pan’s single-minded madness, washing away any thoughts or memories the infected does not constantly reinforce. These memories are not hidden or locked away, they are completely wiped away, and can never be recovered.
