Old Scratch has a brother. He gazes at you in the Miranda Mines. Who is he? I dont know if he is in a quest or something, but by ratbeards beard he is the scariest thing I have ever seen! He stares at you on top of the cliff near the entrance, and death lies in his eyes.

I've seen him when I tried to get that guy to escape to the docks. He's a hougan, wearing blue clothing.

Yes that's the haunting guy. He just stares at you. Anyone know who he is or what he wants?

Me: DOC! Err... What do you know about Miranda?
Old Scratch: Well, it all started, mon... IN THE MINES!!!

*Scratch tells story*

Apparently, me and my blood brother Beck were mine-workers inside. We also were in to the arts of shaman-like witchcraft, you know as Mojo. So, we were once on an ill-fated expedition that led us heavily underground. Our mine partner Buddie, we called him Budd, accidentally caused a cave-in that crushed him. We tried to get away, but we were trapped at a large cliff. Beck and I had to take the jump, so I did so. Sadly, water filled up the mine, so I ended up drowning in it, and that's how I became what I am, but let's skip to Beck's fate. He was a bit too cowardly to take the jump. So he waited, waited, and waited until the water cleared. By the time it was dry, he was dead. He still is here to this day to gaze deathly into the eyes of his future trespassers.

Me: Oh my garden, such a tale! Still, I do like it.

Robert & Mark you both have wonderful imaginations and are gifted writers. I enjoyed both stories and I can't wait to get to Miranda again so I can ask the ghost which story is really his.

Wait, Old Scratch has a BROTHER!?!?!?1 Wow, I've been through Miranda at least ten times and I've NEVER seen that guy.Back to the topic. The scariest thing in Cool Ranch for me was... hmm. I have to think about that. Let me just go play the game for a second to find out...for me it's got to be...Captain Blood. The very idea of somebody cheating death, whose hand was CHOPPED OFF, which is also part of a quest that each player needs to complete. And finally, he was a real pirate (says the history section of the pirate lore library on this site). His last name is Blood, doesn't that just shout, "Scary"? And why has nobody posted anything but rumours about "Old Scratch's Brother"? Well, Happy New Year everyone and I hope a few of you post something other than all the others. TheSuperSwashbuckler

i was thinking about it when i did old scratch's last promotion. So i asked him about it and he said the skeleton you saw was a illusion, created by Captain blood himself. I never had a brother but i did have a sister... i said: maybe it's her... Old scratch: it might be... We go to Miranda and they have a good time in a fight together...

The brother changes as you promote old scratch. I went back once i had fully promoted old scratch to help a friend and the brother was the same as old scratch.

This cant be. If you have seen the you tube video "Rogues gallery, Old scratch", he doesn't even remember his past. SO, even if we ask him the answer will always be.IDK
