About the adventure

You took a slight detour in Ohio to check out a haunting in Lima. You had hoped to make better time because you need to be in Indy tonight. You’ve been forced to push on into the night and now you’re just South of Muncie. It is a moonless night. It is clear and cold, being March and the stars are bright.
