The citizens of New Orleans are thrilled that the owners of the old Madison Avenue Mansion are hosting the annual Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball again this year. However, everybody knows that when events are held at the mansion, something always goes wrong. The estate is an infamous manor, built in the mid-1800s, and rumored to be haunted by malevolent ghosts. Wedding ceremonies held there end in divorce, visiting travelers go missing, and even one time during a gala event, an uninvited ninja trying to rob the guests choked to death after stealing a bite of king cake!
Nonetheless, outside of a few mishaps, the Mardi Gras galas are the talk of the town. You’re a thrill seeker and wish to attend the event. You had insider information that space was limited, so you were first in line to get your tickets. You’ve picked out the perfect mask. This is where your story begins.
