Unable to gain permission to visit the Isle of Ghost’s Tears from Warlord Tam, the posse hired a boat to take them out there. On the island the posse discovered a graveyard and soon came under attack from the spirits of those buried there. Benjamin was able to calm one of the ghosts and learned that all the ghosts here followed the orders of Meng Chiang-mu, a ghost the posse later learned was of the first woman to die in the Great Quake. Meng explained that ghosts had been taken by something that was hidden from her. The posse discovered a creature identified as a Sin Eater on a smaller island and were able to defeat it. Happy that the threat to the ghosts was over, Meng allowed the posse access to the petroglyph.

• The only other occupant of the Isle of Ghost Tears was a hermit named Genjia. The posse speculated that he may have been responsible for the missing ghosts but were unable to detect anything odd about him. It was unclear if he was responsible for the Sin Eater (or if he was actually the Sin Eater) as the posse did not see him afterwards.
“I give easement and rest now to thee, dear man. Come not down the lanes or in our meadows. And for thy peace I pawn my own soul. Amen” From the gravestone of Richard Munslow, a Sin-eater who died in 1906 in Ratlinghope, Shropshire.
