In the abbey, there is a clock in the black and scarlet section and when it chimes everyone stops what they're doing. Every hour the guests (as well as the prince) would enter a period of tremulousness and meditation.
On the night of the party, the guests discover that an oddly dressed figure is in the room. They people soon discover that the figure is the pestilence that has been killing people in the kingdom outside of the abbey.
