It is time again for the annual Pumpkin Palooza Costume Party! Skull Manor is an old estate in the heart of Spider City known for its captivating architecture, mysterious ambiance, and unspeakable history. The townspeople have been scurrying about the streets to get ready for the big night of great food and outrageous gossip.
This has been a daunting year of dissension and discord among many of the Spider City residents. Rumors of blackmail, thievery, and outrageous controversies have been circulating throughout the town’s grapevines. We all hope everybody can put aside their differences for a night of fun. If not, there may be misfortune on the horizon. This is where your story begins.
