The Crucible in Pathologic Classic HD
The Crucible labeled

The Crucible (Горны) is home to the Kain family. It's located in The Bridge Square, on the West bank of The Gullet.

Description

The Crucible consists of three separate mansions surrounded by a high, gated wall. The three wings of the mansion belong to Victor Kain, Georgiy Kain, and Maria Kaina respectively. The Crucible is covered in intriguing and strange artwork, as well as portraits of members of the Kains. It is the closest residence to The Polyhedron and is also located close to the family tomb, where Nina Kaina is buried.

Pathologic

All playable healers may rest in either of the beds in Maria's wing. One of the beds is located in a bedroom with childish knickknacks and likely belongs to Khan, who rarely leaves the Polyhedron.

Pathologic 2

The Haruspex is able to save at the clocks in all three wings. In contrast to Pathologic in Pathologic 2 Georgiy is not found in the main section of the mansion, but is instead found inside of a workshop on the left side of home.

Upon waking the Bachelor will be informed by Sticky that the Judge has stopped by to see him. While walking through the Town the Bachelor will begin to hear worrying rumours that the Judge has lifted the quarantine - an action that would put the already vulnerable Bridge Square and Atrium at risk. Outside of the Judge's Workshop a tragedian will be standing, uttering worrying things about the Judge's choices. Inside the Judge waits. When confronted about quarantine measures Georgiy Kain will explain his philosophy, citing that the plague may merely be a test that the Town must pass.

Notes

  • In Russian, The Crucible is called "Горны". A «горн» is a forge, so “the Forge” would be the word-for-word translation as The Kains are forging a new reality in the depths of their mansion. The Russian term also bears semblance to the expression «мир горний», that basically means “heavens”.[1]
  • A crucible is a ceramic or metal container in which metals or other substances may be melted or subjected to very high temperatures. As such, it also refers to a place or situation in which concentrated forces interact to cause or influence change or development.[2]
