Haunted Fort Night

Terror in William's Town - The Witches Plague

A terrible darkness has awoken in the secluded community of William's Town. Its dark whispers are carried on the wind and its terrifying cackle bubbles in the river. William's Town is overrun by the Witches Plague. Its presence lurks all around; it turns light to dark, dreams to nightmares, life to death. You can try but you will never escape the terror in William's Town.
