is a character in
He works at the
Hospital on the main row of town, next to the Police Station and Penny's Diner.
Doctor Herbert is an older guy with wild white hair and facial hair, and wears glasses. He wears a brown suit.
Fall Wednesday - 1900
When exiting the
Blacksmith's at night (With Lazarus and Ken inside), Kain is startled by the character and runs off, dropping a vial in the process. If the player shows this to Kain, he denies ever having seen it and Ken and Lazarus wonder what it could have contained.
The vial can be shown to the
doctor who confirms that it contains poison. After this, the player can show the vial to Ken in order to trigger the rest of the event.
Ken, the player, and Lazarus confront Kain and he confesses. He says that he had to expand, as
Joshua was looking to get a different carpenter from the city. Though Ken wants to throw him in jail, they instead make a deal where Ken takes over the carpenter as well.
After Kain leaves, they thank the player. They recieve two
octotinium and the vial.
NOTE: You can get a different outcome of the vial event if you show it to first to the Doctor, and then Kain. Kain will offer you a couple thousand gold to never mention this event again.
Huh? I...I've never seen this before! It's just
some lil' bottle right? Nothing weird here!
Dropped by Kain, you say? Well, what did it
Eh? What's that?
Hmmm...you want me to take a look at it?
Alright. Give me a second.
This vial contains traces of cadmium. It's a
heavy metal, and it's extremely toxic to humans.
I wonder where you found such a thing
around here and why.
Hm. You youngsters certainly pass your
time in weird ways.
After the doctor
...Oh my. That bastard! We should
have a talk with Kain and you, ____, should be present too!

Hmm...haven't seen you around before. What's your name?
Are you the new owner of the farm? Aren't you a bit young to play farmer?
But then again, pretty much everyone looks too young to me.
I am Herbert, the town's doctor. If you catch a cold, or get dismembered, come see me. I can stitch pretty much everything back.
Going round the town, eh? Good. Walking is good for the heart.
Back in my days, we didn't have sunscreen. And if we got sunburned, we were getting smeared in cold yoghurt.
Fall always reminds me of falling. Many an old man has lost their life because of a bad fall.
Before you arrived, an old man lived in the farmhouse. His name was Jakobson or something like that. Fell and broke his femur. Didn't make it.
If you sweat, don't let it dry on you! Get in the house, change your shirt, go back outside!
Spring is a good time to gather green herbs. They're good for restoring your stamina.
Is it just me, or do Summers keep getting hotter and hotter? It must be because of this phenomenon, something to do with a greenhouse.
If you have a greenhouse, you are guilty!
Hm. Oh, hello. How are you.
Have you been vaccined? If so, then you have made a grave mistake! Yes sir! I strongly oppose vaccines!
Those city-dwellers pump our bodies full of poison and suspicious substances!
Me? Well, I am vaccined too. Wouldn't want to catch hepatitis my age. Why are you looking at me like that?
I am not used to such kind gestures. Thank you.
Young one, where have you come from to bring such joy to an old coot?
Penny's dishes are medicine for the soul.
Otto seems to me a bit troubled since...well...some time ago. Of course, I'm wrong as much as I am right...
Eh? You scared me.
This grave? It belongs to a woman. You don't know her. If she were alive, she would be a bit older than me.
Don't you have something better to do other than following old men around?
I read something in a poetry book about the fresh air of the forest. Or maybe it was a bubble gum commercial.
I lost my faith many years ago. Now I come here out of habit.
Besides, how will I be able to tell my patients that their fate is in God's hands, without passing for a believer myself, eh? Heh heh...
Huh? Came here for your morning prescription?
What? You don't take any pills? And how can you live?
Always make sure to have a good night's sleep. Going to bed late will get you out of it late as well.
A long time a go, a strange fruit came to our land. Prunus obscuram, it is called. Locals refer to it as the shadow plum.
I think one of Lazarus' ancestors brought it here from a place far away, but I'm not sure if it's true.
The fruit is really miraculous. For staters, it doesn't wither, even after all these years.
It is believed it can charge your body with vigor, and even slow down the effects of poisoning!
That villa over there has seen better days. It was Hermaeus and his mad obsessions that brought the entire Faradouchi family to ruin.
If only I had the courage to...to do something!
An old lady used to live in this town. She carried a piece of driftwood with her, even talked to it. People are weird, aren't they.
Joshua's lodge is a fine establishment. I wonder if his children will be able to uphold his legacy.
Sometimes I wonder who the Theater Man really is. He looks painfully familiar but...no. He can't be.
Eh?...Is that Otto? What is he doing there? Oh...
So Otto hanged himself. What he did was awful, if you ask me. I'm talking about the girl.
He all have our sirens, but few manage to trade them with a cross to carry inside.
I don't feel sorry for Denny. Well, maybe a little.
This reminds me of something...I feel a presence I haven't felt since...
Someone with a filthy mind operates in this town. Someone whose inner ear listens to the most vulgar of thoughts.
Well well. Happy birthday young one.
Have a nice day.
You are so unlike the rest of them, young one. They always seek to take, whereas you know how to give.
Let me tell you how to make something to help you when your exploits cause you wounds.
That villa...I was young when people lived there. Hermaeus was a strange man. His family's heritage weighed heavy on him.
Maybe he wanted to get rid of it. But in the end it was too late. His wife...oh, Francesca. I was in love with her. I won't deny it.
Supposedly Hermaeus found something, deep inside the mountain, something his ancestors were looking for centuries. And it drove him mad.
When we found Francesca's body inside the villa...Hermaeus was gone. And the baby was there, alive and unharmed.
Every time I close my eyes, I see her. Lying on the bed... Whatever Hermaeus found, it consumed him. But not before destroying his entire family.
I'll share one more secret with you. It's a recipe for a substance that will greatly heal and refresh you. Listen closely...
