Fatal Frame IIEdit

For some reason, one of the statues is in the form of twins.

I have also found a description of a "Twin Deities Statue" in the writings lying around the house.

In this region, twins serve an unusual purpose. Twin sisters or brothers perform a special ritual here.

Each time the ritual it completed, a new Twin Deities Statue is placed somewhere in the village.

The ritual occurs every few decades, and judging by the number if Twin Deities, this tradition is very old.

For some reason, one of the twins always has its head broken off. Sometimes they are sculpted without a head from the start.

Maybe it doesn't mean anything, but something here doesn't feel right.

I'm beginning to think that I was wrong to leave Miyako behind alone.

I have to find a way out of here fast...

Fatal Frame II: Deep Crimson ButterflyEdit

Amongst the line of guardian stones, one is for some reason engraved with a set of twins.
I have found a description of this twin guardian stones in one of the manuscripts in this house.

Twins are very important in the local customs of this area.
Indeed, a ceremony that requires the participation of twin brothers or sisters is regularly held.
It would appear that a guardian stone is erected somewhere in the village every time the ceremony is completed.

The ceremony seems to take place every few decades, and must therefore be a very ancient custom, judging by the number of twin guardian stones in the village.
On all of the guardian stones I've seen, one of the engraved twins is missing a head. Some appear to have have been made that way originally.

I'm sure there's no special reason for it, but its rather eerie, I must admit.

I'm beginning to wish I hadn't left Miyako alone.

I wonder what this ceremony that uses twins is all about. I've tried searching for details of it in all sorts of local manuscripts, nut I've found nothing.

Now, I think I'd better find a way out of here...
