Morgenstern
You take a closer look at the frames on the wall. They're all fancy, golden frames, with the pictures contained behind shining glass. The frames look fairly fragile.

The first is a newspaper clipping, featuring Macland Row with his arm around a young Japanese woman. The clipping reads "Macland Row gives blessing to local entrepreneur Gesenai Shirai."

The second small picture is a photo of Macland Row shaking hands with a pastor. The caption reads "Macland Row nobly donates funds to church of Brother Harold Hope."

The third small picture is a candid photo of Macland Row eating dinner with the mayor of the city.

The long frame in the middle houses a large, elaborate painting. It depicts Macland Row carrying a cross up a hill. In the background are various people, including members of the media and Macland's own "allies," jeering, throwing things at him, and even whipping him.

You also investigate the statue. It appears to be made of solid gold. You don't notice anything extraordinary about it, however.

By the time you get done looking at all the art, you realize that the women have stopped talking to each other. They have all turned, and are staring directly at you, but they do not speak.

You cautiously make your way to the door at the back. Their eyes follow you the entire way.

Beyond the far door is a single, small room, containing a single artwork. There is a big, white sheet thrown over it, hiding its contents.

Well, crap damn, I wish I hadn't said let's look at the art now. :'D SHOULDA JUST BLAZED PAST 'EM

Friggin' Macland and that cross picture, that's messed up. He really thinks he's some kind of martyr or saint or something? Yeesh.

And I'm pretty damn sure whatever's behind that white sheet, it's not going to be pretty. Help, guys. What are going to find in here?

(Fuse, where are youuu why aren't you here to help us burn things XDDD)

If it's a portrait of Bloody Jane... uh...
Should we panic then?

That would be pretty scary just from its implications, but if it's going to be Jane, it's not just going to be a normal portrait, that's for sure.

ah, fuck. the projections are on to us, they know we don't belong here. something tells me we're in for a world of trouble when we look under that sheet, but... might as well. i'm hoping that this whole thing follows Inception rules and if we get killed in this dream we'll wake up, but still, something we should maybe a void... too bad we haven't found anything to defend ourselves yet...

Unnh... well if you recal the first room? It has no exit door, so I assume we can either jump out at any point, or have to get back to the main room to jump out.
...wait...
Is the lack of an exit door the trap?... uh...

Yeah Mochi, I totally agree. We're going to have to look under the thing. Brace ourselves, because it's highly likely that memetic defense thing is about to kick in.
