The Harbinger and the Fountain
Jacob’s Island is a small island separated from South shore of the Thames by a glorified ditch. A small area by all accounts but inhabited by some of the most destitute and poor souls in London. A cesspit for all of London’s unwanted, cholera and other diseases run rampant here unchecked by even the minimum of sanitation. The buildings are so close together as to almost choke one another and precarious to the point of almost falling down. The unpaved streets turn to mud every time it rains and then they turn to rivers when the Thames floods them out. Strange events seem to happen around Jacob’s Island. There have been several eyewitness accounts where people long since dead have been seen walking around. Mostly these rumors have been disregarded as no one wants to travel there to examine them in more detail.
