\ Haven:Mist and Shadow OutOfDreams/Your Ancestors Estate

Your Ancestors Estate


Ruin has come to your family. You remember our venerable house, opulent and imperial, gazing proudly from its stoic perch above the moor?

That grand and stolid edifice to your family's greatness now lies a dank and musty tomb, the once extravagant stonework left to crumble in disrepair. Strange things lurk within those shadowed halls, patiently waiting for their chance to feast upon innocent flesh and rend asunder innocent minds. There are stranger things still waiting to be found among the ruined tapestries and rotted wood; the dark and terrible secrets which your family for so long has sought to keep.

A basecamp has been erected in the shadow of that ruined monolith. There they gather, the brave and foolhardy alike, to be preyed upon the creatures that stalk the wreckage even as they prepare to plunder its darkened depths. Within, only the fragile and flickering light of a torch might hope to keep insanity at bay. But for how long?

The product of some twisted experiment, the outcome of some dark pact, a descendent yourself of the Patriarch's myriad victims.

It is you who stalks the darkened ruins, it is you who preys upon the unwitting inhabitants of the camp below. You are the reason why we must fear the night.
