New SorGun Halloween Special



The poor Powell family. Shortly after they moved to New SorGun in 1864, Mr. Powell’s wife and young son became ill with tuberculosis and passed away later that year. Overcome with grief, Powell abandoned his home and was never seen again. The Powell home was a few miles outside of town, in the deep woods. Residents passing by would tell stories of strange noises and haunting sights. Mostly, folks laughed these off as scary stories to tell naughty children. But one night, during a cold fall storm in late October of 1870, two ranchers were passing by the Powell home late at night. They noticed that the lantern had been lit, which hadn't burned since the Powell’s had lived there 6 years before. Then… between the lightning strikes, the ranchers caught a glimpse of the old dead oak tree near the abandoned home…


Happy Halloween!

@Mithrik - It's hard to spot, but check the tree to the right of the house - the branch that extends closest to the house... easiest to see during the lightning flashes. Perhaps not that scary, but I did the best I could with the SC4's overhead view :)

Incredible work, as usual. Will there be a part 2?

The dark and stormy night is good for a scary update, and the story was well done. Good work! Where I live, I didn't get any storms on Halloween. It was as dry as a bone. :)
