Madame Rogêt is a psychic at, and the owner of, the Raven's Knock in Kingsmouth where she sells occultist items and tells peoples' fortunes.

Other Information

It is unknown if "Rogêt" is her real last name, or an assumed name. Given her background, it is most likely and assumed name.

Before coming to Kingsmouth she had been married. However her husband left her sometime in the late 1990's ("a few years" before 2002).[1] After that, she apparently took to traveling and taking odd jobs in order to stay ahead of bill collectors until she finally wound up in Kingsmouth. She moved to Kingsmouth in 2002. [1]

She apparently has a reputation among some of the townspeople in Kingsmouth for being a "woman of loose morals". Although this is not entirely unfounded, as it is known by players that she has been sexually involved with at least the town Mayor [2], Doctor Bannerman [3]. In addition, it is mentioned on a laptop data file in Blue Mountain that she may be involved in prostitution with some visiting military personnel[4].

She also appears to have a thing for light BDSM, [5] playing Doctor/Patient [3], military men[6] or prostitution[7], as well as an interest in have sex with supernatural creatues (especially Fauns) [8]

Madame Rogêt does appear to have at least some psychic abilities. During The Raven she has visions of ravens that lead you to a Revenant, during The Vision has visions that lead you Spectre that needs to be destroyed, and during The Meowling her visions eventually lead you to Baron Samedi

Madame Roget: About me.
Madame Roget: It’s not true.
Madame Roget: Not all of it. I mean, sure, before all this happened, I was a, um...
Madame Roget: I was an active young woman. You know, I liked to play.
Madame Roget: But that doesn’t give anybody the right to badmouth me!
Madame Roget: Ack, small towns are all the same, filled with small-minded and petty people.

Converse Yourself #2

Madame Roget: So if a married man breaks his vows, I’m to blame, right?
Madame Roget: Yeah. Stands to reason he was bewitched and seduced, through no fault of his own.
Madame Roget: Drum up the auto de fé. Burn the witch at the stake.

Converse Yourself #3

Madame Roget: I find it amusing when they talk about me behind my back.
Madame Roget: More often than not my most vocal detractors have been among my most frequent visitors.
Madame Roget: Jealousy and guilt are two very powerful incentives to exaggerating someone’s promiscuity.

The Fog

Converse The fog #1

Madame Roget: I suppose I got lucky when the fog came.
Madame Roget: I was um...
Madame Roget: tied up in here, heh.
Madame Roget: I had this uncontrollable urge to walk into the sea, let the waters swallow me,
Madame Roget: but I was unable to, due to, you know, eh, plush handcuffs.

Converse The fog #2

Madame Roget: The mayor wasn’t as fortunate, but I suppose I can thank his fetishes for saving my life.
Madame Roget: In the commotion, he ran out of here.
Madame Roget: In his boxers. With the key to the handcuffs.
Madame Roget: Which probably means he’s walking around out there somewhere.
Madame Roget: In his boxers. With the keys to the handcuffs.

Converse The fog #3

Madame Roget: I contemplated biting my own hands off, but then Andy found me.
Madame Roget: Buck naked. Me, not him, heh.
Madame Roget: He turned red as a tomato, sweet kid. He-he.
Madame Roget: But I didn’t want to join the others at the station.
Madame Roget: I’ve had enough of the judgmental looks and the whispering. I’ll fend for myself, thanks very much.

Kingsmouth Town

Converse Kingsmouth Town #1

Madame Roget: I’m not from Kingsmouth. I moved here about ten years ago.
Madame Roget: In retrospect, perhaps not the best decision I’ve ever made.
Madame Roget: First my husband left me, then I lost my house, my savings...
Madame Roget: Running away seemed like the best answer at the time. I moved around for a few years.
Madame Roget: I didn’t have any applicable skills, no education. My options were limited.
Madame Roget: Hello Kingsmouth. Yay.

Converse Kingsmouth Town #2

Madame Roget: This town seemed as good a place as any to settle.
Madame Roget: Plenty of people in need of assurance, so I figured I’d give this fortune telling business a go.
Madame Roget: And here I am.
Madame Roget: Surrounded by the living dead…in more ways than one.

Halloween

Converse Halloween #1

Madame Roget: Some nights exist out of time.
Madame Roget: They're not part of one season or the next. Don't belong to the living or the dead.
Madame Roget: Boundaries collapse. Mortals meet with gods, demons, ghosts. All that crap.
Madame Roget: Sacrifice, purging, divination, summoning...
Madame Roget: There are certain kinds of crazy you can't get away with on "normal" nights.

Converse Halloween #2

Madame Roget: Example.
Madame Roget: Apparently, it's the one night a year mortals can, uh,
Madame Roget: make love with supernatural creatures.
Madame Roget: I know, fingers crossed, right?
Madame Roget: No, but seriously, if you know any single fauns...
Madame Roget: Obviously I'm kidding.
Madame Roget: I mean, they don't HAVE to be single.
