For decades, the ruined mansion on the rocky peninsula south of town has been the source of furtive whispers and ill omens. While many have forgotten the night the sky burned red and the old halls fell to flame, all know that now its grounds are a dead place, where only fools and the suicidal dare tread. Yet, those who do remember that fateful night nearly forty years ago can tell another tale — although they rarely do. This story is of generosity, the best intentions, and an unlikely romance, but also of jealousy, blasphemous curiosity, and a kind of demonic insanity. The mansion to the south wasn’t just some fop’s manor house, they say, but a hospital of a kind, a sanctuary for those unable to help themselves, a sanatorium of the mind and thoughts, and an asylum of the insane.
At the urging of concerned parties, the characters are entreated to infiltrate the long-abandoned, fire-scarred, and — many say — cursed halls of Haverthold Asylum. Can the heroes’ actions put to rest the spirits of both those who remember the tragedy of the asylum and those actual apparitions that still stalk the ruin’s halls?
