Synopsis

Plot

Old Man Cardew had owned most of the land round here and been regarded as being a hard but fair man. He had married a beautiful younger woman, Samantha, and had lived happily for several years and she had given birth to a little girl, Elizabeth or Betty, as she preferred. But, Samantha had always had a roving eye and, shortly after Betty turned five she left Old Man Cardew for a younger man.
This seemed to unhinge Old Man Cardew and he began a campaign of cruelty and abhorrent behaviour towards his tenants, his workers and his daughter. Gradually, family by family, everyone in the are left until only the Cardew house was left occupied by Old Man Cardew and Betty.
Around this time, Old Man Cardew took to studying curious books of magical lore. Quite what he was looking for, no one ever found out because, one night, around Halloween, a shotgun blast had been heard from nearby and Old Man Cardew had been found with a hole blasted through his head and a bonfire made from his books.
No trace of Betty was ever discovered...
Over the intervening years, rumours of ritual magical practices and whisperings of sacrifices, perhaps even human sacrifice fuelled the legend of The Cardew House. Previous investigators had run terrified from the house metioning the unhealthy, evil atmosphere of the house.
Now, it is your turn to try to find out what happened...
