Tempest Files Alt1x.png



I'm Bronwyn Miles and I never thought I'd be spending my days as an amateur sleuth.

Three months in Tempest Bay now. Trapped in this strange little town on the edge of the world, trying to uncover what lies beneath its charming surface. 

I’m doing my best to pull the strands together and stay sane. Moving about by day, carefully, then staying locked up in the old second hand bookstore at night. Uploading these files to the server when I can.

I know I'm obsessed. It's got me. But there are things here I've never encountered. Glimpses that've changed my mind about what’s happening in the world. 

Sometimes it’s snatches of philosophy, art, exotic science. More often it’s voices. People's memories, their diaries, their struggles with madness and horror. They emerge out of the darkness, speaking of the past and the future. Storms, shipwrecks, rituals, journeys. One particular twisted and fascinating family.


There’s a secret story behind Tempest Bay. Behind everything. If I can just decipher it. If you’ll help me.

I need a cup of chamomile tea so badly I could scream.
