Something Wicked This Way Comes

It's getting to that time of year again, when creatures rise from their graves, restless spirits roam the earth, and…and, well, children come to the door demanding candy. In the spirit of the season, Emilly Orr has created a disturbing little build called Sever.

You walk along a path before making your way to a mysterious warehouse.

Don't let the blood at the door disturb you, go on in.

Scattered around the warehouse are pages from something called the "Black Book," describing, among other things, a technique to move between time and across worlds. The warehouse itself is filled with discarded furniture, filing cabinets, industrial drums, scattered papers, and more blood stains.

Arcane symbols are drawn on the walls and appear in the scraps from the book. What do they mean? The warehouse shows signs of recent human habitation, but no one is there now.

As Miss Orr says, the build is less a haunt than a disquieting tableau. She says it is her take on the Slender Man legend. She has certainly succeeded in creating a disturbing space.
