The Train Wreck is a major location in Darkwood.
A useless one-shot shotgun can still be found nearby on a corpse under a movable rock.[unconfirmed]
Chapter Conclusion Edit
- This section contains major spoilers. Reader discretion is advised.
- Musician's Path
Finding out the Doctor's location through the Musician's help has significant consequences. The Musician will inform the Doctor of the Protagonist's coming, his intentions to book the Protagonist an appointment, unwittingly leading to the Protagonist's ambush and capture when he enters the train.
The Doctor heavily drugs the Protagonist, causing him to hallucinate some kind of an out-of-body experience, in which he witnesses events from the Doctor's past. These events include the transformation of the Pretty Lady and villagers mutating horrendously as they beg the Doctor for help.
If the player is caught and killed, they wake up in the train car alone, an unknown amount of time having passed. Upon getting to the Underground Entrance, they will find the Armored Door wide open. Entering will conclude Chapter 1.
If the player isn't caught in the hallucination, something else may happen. [unconfirmed]
- Other Path
The chapter's conclusion will play out very differently. The Doctor will hand over the Big, Metal Key, leaving himself to the player's mercy. The player can choose to tell the Doctor of the Underground Entrance, in which case the Doctor will be found there waiting next to the Armored Door. The Doctor can also be killed, or simply left alone.
