Haunted Trail #1
The Candy Tree
On the outskirts of Castlemoore, there was a small village. One resident, a child named Nathaniel Kane loved the wonderful sweets and treats his elder sister, the town baker, made for him. Since he was shy and tame in nature the local bullies harassed him. One Halloween they took him into the woods to a big tree and told him if he hugged it tight, he would get all the sweets he could handle. As he hugged it they tied him to the tree and stole his candy. The next morning the town was in chaos over the missing child. The bullies finally lead the town constable and family to the tree but all they saw were the fallen ropes and a shadow of what appeared to be a small child imprinted on the tree with candy wrappers scattered on the ground. From then on, the tree became known as The Candy Tree and every Halloween a heavy shadow loomed over the town. Children would come up missing and candy wrappers littered the ground they walked on. Legend has it that a mysterious shadow creature named Kane returns to The Candy Tree to hunt and eat trick or treaters that dare to venture near. How close will you dare to roam to The Candy Tree?
Haunted Trail #2
Marionette of the Dead
The Schwartz Family Funeral Home has a few new tenets residing in its dark halls. A gang of misfits led by their schizophrenic master, Poppy, moved in soon after the funeral home was forced to shut down. Poppy considers herself an artist of grand proportions and the quiet and stillness of the empty funeral home is the perfect setting to throw herself into her work. She is fascinated with the theatre and puppetry, more specifically creating marionettes as life like as possible…perhaps a little too life like. She has decided to put on her next show detailing the tragedy of Sir Henry with the help of her crew. But Poppy has a love for the macabre and is obsessed with creating the most realistic puppets as possible. She began using the left-over body parts of the funeral home to build her creations, even digging up graves. But soon, that wasn’t enough to satisfy her artistic craving and she needed a new method to flesh out her vision. Poppy and her crew turned to snatching unsuspecting guests at their shows to mold into live puppets. Will you escape the show or become one of her puppets?
