NOTE: This custom story is based around a FICTIONAL organization. Any relation to humans or groups, living or dead, is purely coincidental.


The Order of the Skull, a secret society formed in 1778, notorious for experiments involving human subjects, using methods most men are too moral to imagine. The Order were feared by many, even law enforcement feared to venture near their base. Their leader, Theodore Ramsdin, was ruthless and dangerous, but fortunately the Order of the Skull were gone soon enough. Alex Handerlin fought for all that was moral when he entered their base in 1797. He tried everything to slay their leader when he tried to open a gateway to power no living being should possess, he ended up resorting to destroying the mythical artifact that powered the gate, causing the entire building to implode with the rock it lay almost a hundred yards below. It destroyed Theodore and Alex both, and without their leader, the Order of the Skull slipped away into the pages of legend.

Now, in 1867, some 7 decades later, disappearances in the woods surrounding Gramsville have lead investigators to believe someone, or something is holding residents of the hamlet captive. In this adventure, you play as Gregory, a small time investigator, who received a letter from an undisclosed writer asking that he come to the complex where the Order of the Skull is operating, riding their secrecy on the belief that they were wiped out after their leader was slain, the letter tells that the Order of the Skull has made a comeback, and plan to continue the legacy of their fallen leader. You decide to follow up on the possible lead and head to the coordinates written on the back of the letter, where indeed a large building lay hidden within the trees. Without thought you enter to take notes, but entering this building only begins a route to hell itself, The situation turning dire as the Order begins searching for the interloper, you.
