There are places in our world where fiction and dreams can come true.

Return 1: Invitation (Witch's Ladle Sign)

Found next to the large tree when Saga and Casey go to the lake to investigate after wrapping up their examination of the crime scene. Saga will pass this sign as part of the main story, commenting on the story's similarities to their case. 

Next to the Witch's Ladle (later referred to as Overlap), is a sign on the mythology behind the place. Next to the sign is a large sketch of Barbara Jagger, her appearance mirroring her look from the original game. There's a hole in her chest where her heart should be. 

Text:  "WITCH’S LADLE. There is no mystery in Cauldron Lake being named after its cauldron shape. And yet, there are many mysterious stories about the lake. It being a gloomy doorway to the underworld. Or of a witch whose cauldron the lake really was. 

The legend tells that when the affections of a local Sheriff went unanswered, he accused the lady in question of having bewitched him. She was drowned, but her dropped ladle grew into a strange tree named the Witch’s Ladle.

The woman returned to avenge her wrongdoers - if she was not a witch before, she was one now. She killed the Sheriff, drowning him in the lake. Then, she took out his heart and locked it in a box. With the heart, she would summon him from the lake to exact revenge on her behalf. Or so the legend goes."
