Midway Estate has been famous since it was built in the early 1800’s. The gregarious home was built by an affluent gent to impress the daughter of the Governor. The young woman fell in love and wed the gent despite her father’s rumored disdain of him.
It wouldn’t be that last rumor. They were very private, seldom having visitors except the Governor himself. Some said it was because the gent was a cheater or an abuser. Others that the daughter was sick or crazy. It was of course presumed to be all uncouth but pointless gossip.
Once older in age, they attended a ball on Hallow’s Eve. This was the last they were seen. Rumors of all colors flew about and eventually the couple was declared dead though there was no clue what might have happened.
The estate, having no known heirs, fell into the hands of the government who declared it to be made a historical land mark. Nearly after a year after the property was sealed off due to consistent accidents and strange occurrences.
Today someone claiming to be a long lost heir has gotten custody of the estate. Knowing the hideous rumors that wash the area they have decided to open the home to a group of up to eight locals. The group is invited to explore the estate at their leisure one evening to dispel the rumors of it being cursed or haunted or evil.
The invitation is public and first come first serve. Will you RSVP?
TL;DR - An old supposedly haunted house has a new owner who has invited up to eight locals to come visit one evening in order to show it’s not haunted. (Or at least that’s what they would have you believe).
This is a mystery/horror story, based heavily around the set-up of Betrayer in the House on the Hill (because it’s the bomb digity).
