Epilogue

Going back to the Needle, which will take you to the present. You must find a cure for Gail, Megan, and Primrose. Near the house, pick berries and leaves from the Buckthorn bush, and grind them up. Use Buckthorn Smellingsalts on Primrose, upstairs. Talk to Megan, and speak the demon Metum's name to her to free her. Next, use the Bottle of Crushed Berries on the stove to create buckthorn salve, and use this on Gail. She asks you to speak to Megan.

After all the dialogue, go to the Needle, and read the note. Give this note to Megan to finish the quest.
