Waycrest Manor

Once the palatial estate of the Drustvar’s ruling family, Waycrest Manor now serves as the focus of dark rumors since the Lord and Lady inexplicably locked themselves within its halls. Stories of foul rituals, people disappearing in the night, and horrible screams coming from within the home are common among the townsfolk. Amid all these whispers, only one thing is known, something evil has taken root within the Waycrest grounds.
