Daniel Bach's quarry, the hellraiser Theodore Wicker, is the cause of the hellish events at the Overlook Motel. Cross to the other side and find him before the situation worsens.

Inside Room 13 is a door that shouldn't be there. What lies on the other side?
  • Enter the ominous door

You're not in Maine anymore. Investigate the toxic landscape to find your bearings.

The cryptic voice mentioned Theodore Wicker. It seems she's your best lead through the Hell Dimensions.

This demon warrior isn't letting you through its scalding domain without a fight.

  • Kill the Hardwired Fleshtank

The ruined structure in the distance might bear investigating.

  • Get through the ruins

Overthrow the demoness occupying the great spire.

  • Defeat Recursia, Many-in-One

A great energy emanates from atop the plateau. You must be nearing Wicker.

SUBJECT: Into The Inferno
Theodore Wicker is a dangerous and unstable element in the fabric of Hell. We would rather see him free than chained as a mindless battery.

Hell is a stilled sea of oil, awaiting introduction of a spark, and we are curious to see the long-term effects of a man like Wicker. In time, Hell will burn through him, make of him another melted candle.

That is why we do not sign agreements with so-called masters of Hell.

Today, we aid Wicker. Tomorrow, whoever is best positioned to maintain the beat of the furious drum.

SUBJECT: Into The Inferno
Wicker's making a play for Hell. Ideally in this situation, we'd back a winner for the sake of future cross-dimensional agreements. I like Wicker's moxie, but I'm still not convinced he makes an ideal trading partner.

You've decided to help Wicker on this occasion - essential, since he was being used as a battery to sustain a very substantial rift.

However, playing favorites isn't our current long-term strategy. Maybe we jump on the Wicker train eventually, but for now let's allow local politics to run their course.


Templars.png FROM: Temple Hall
To: <Character Name>
SUBJECT: Into The Inferno
Theodore Wicker is the self-proclaimed saviour of Hell – and you have freed him from his enemies. I can understand the impulse to help the sweet succubus and back the Oxford element, but frankly there in nothing of Oxford left in Wicker.

Nonetheless, he was being used as an occult battery to power a most unwelcome rift. Unplugging him was the right course of action.

As for Wicker’s desire to restore dignity to Hell, I would have more faith in the cause if the man wasn’t utterly and irrevocably insane.
