Welcome to your Lancaster Quest
The year was 1612 when the Pendle witches were cruelly captured, tortured and then sentenced to death.
Elizabeth Southern, or “Old Demdike” was tortured something most foul whilst incarcerated; and she sadly died long before the trial ever started.
However, before she passed away; she cast a hex on the men of Lancaster:
“For men born in this town,
A life of misery will be.
For they will live a life of frowns;
And will never ever leave”.
Her hex left the men of Lancaster unable to leave the City; and you will find to this day men born in Lancaster will struggle to leave it; or if they do bad luck will befall them and all those around.
You do however know, that there is a counter spell hidden within the City; long lost to time and decay; and you aim to bring this curse to an end, breaking the hex once and for all.
