Valdorian Age - Rising Power on the Frontier
Old Man Wallowtorn's
This abandoned home is well-known to children in Elweir. It was once the home of Old Man Wallowtorn – some stories call him a demon – who tempted children to enter his home with candies and sweetmeats. When they did, he trapped them in his oven and cooked them in a pie. People say the spirits of children still haunt the place, and if a person listens intently on the day of Oron’s March, he can hear both the children’s cries and the sound of gulping and gnashing teeth, as Wallowtorn’s ghost forks and piece of pie through his black rotted teeth and blubbery lips into his large mouth. They also say the place becomes deathly quiet, and the door creaks open and closed, when Old Man Wallowtorn’s ghost is inside. When the door is tightly shut, you can hear the ghosts of children running through the rooms and laughing as they play.
No one knows for sure if Old Man Wallowtorn’s house is truly haunted. But it has stood vacant for well over a decade. Its lease reverted to Prince Summerset when the last family who lived there died – the two young sons murdered their parents – and no one’s wanted to lease it since.
