About To Fight the Black Wind (Arkham Horror):
"Her malady - nightmares that left her bloody - seemed, at first, to be a common self-harm complex. Then I looked at the wounds. The mind is powerful, but I have never seen the mind create wounds like these. Little did I know her wounds were just the first of many mysteries I would face while caring for Josephine."
-Jennifer Brozek, To Fight the Black Wind
Not all patients can be cured - or want to be.
Psychologist Carolyn Fern’s newest patient suffers from nightmares that leave glyph-shaped wounds across her skin. The case is odd, even for an institution like Arkham Sanatorium, where the unusual becomes the everyday. Things become even more complicated after the young woman claims to have met Malachi - Carolyn’s former patient whose treatment was cut short when he was brutally murdered - in her dreams. What is the link between the two, and how can Carolyn help a patient who, it seems, does not wish to be cured?
