#25 – Savanna and Ari Langhorn

| November 28, 2011 | 0 Comments

The Langhorns are a young couple, reasonably successful for their age, who just bought a new house. It’s the dream of their generation, and they were happy to finally have that part of the American dream that came with home-ownership.

The only caveat is that the house was the one owned by notorious serial killer Willie Heckle. Heckle’s crimes were heinous – fourteen boys tortured and murdered over the span of a decade. It’s said that the cop was so horrified by what he saw that he put a bullet in the kid’s head right before he put one in his own.

But such things didn’t bother a modern and progressive couple like the Langhorns. They knew there were no such things as ghosts, and if weird things happened in that house, well… Weird things happen in every house, don’t they?

Of course, they would soon find out that the house they bought is exactly what they were told it was: haunted. Now they have to find out what the ghosts want and how to make them leave.

#2 Charles, Detective of Purgatory City

| November 2, 2010 | 1 Comment

Charles fell asleep on the banks of the river Styx, exhausted by the conundrum that had plagued his mind. No dead had come to be ferried. What or who Charles was prior to today didn’t matter now. There were questions that needed answers and Charles was just the person to find them.

That’s how he ended up in Purgatory City, a bustling noir-style cut out of 1920s America. In the city center a monolithic glass sky scraper that none seemed to know about. The dead still come, but they never moved on. Purgatory runs on the hopes, dreams, and anger of those who are not ready to move on.

This is where Charles took on the role of detective. Trying his best to figure out what had happen before while also taking on cases of those who cling to life still. His agency operates in the living and dead worlds. Thanks to a special coin paid to him long ago by a certain arch-angel, he is able to become human. Though when he uses it he enters the world just like any other human does, unclothed and screaming.

Far as Charles is concerned, he is still doing the job he always has, he is just doing it differently now.
