Setting

Image
The Ekland Farmhouse
This southern plantation style home was built sometime in the late 1800's by Jakob Ekland, the patriarch of the family, and a group of hired workers and fellow immigrants from the old country. There are two floors, an attic, and a large basement. Over all there are about twenty rooms in the house, and the majority of them are said to be host to some sort of paranormal activity. The three areas within the house which seem to be haunted most frequently are the dining hall, the basement, and the master bedroom.

The Dining Hall
This is where it is said that the Ekland family died on the flesh of the men that Jakob had hired, once the job was done of course. A shadowy figure, whom most people believe is Jakob himself, can often be standing at the head of the table, an arm raised as if to make a toast. People have said that, when they see this shadow figure they feel colder, and they can smell rotting flesh. Whenever anyone has tried to speak with the figure, or to approach it, the figure has disappeared, and with it gone so goes the cold and the stench.

The Master Bedroom
This is where Jakob and his wife, Lucia, laid their heads at night. This room is supposedly always cold, even in the middle of summer, and people have reported seeing a dark figure lying on the bed. One man recounted the story of how he came out to the house one night on a dare, and when he got to this room he saw what looked like a woman lying on the bed. She beckoned for him to join her, but as he approached the man felt something cold wrap around his neck before he was flung out of the room and the door slammed shut. Rumors circulated that Lucia Ekland would attempt to seduce the workers and sleep with them shortly before they were to be murdered, and Jakob, of course, did not like this.

Image
The Basement
It is said that Jakob Ekland's eldest son, Daniel, was helping his father extend the basement one day when he heard a strange sound. Daniel kept digging beneath the house, expanding the basement, making a series of long, twisting tunnels that lead further down but seemingly nowhere of importance. When asked why he kept digging, all Daniel would say was that the voice was telling him to do so. The Eklands thought that it was God talking to their son, so they left him alone. Years later they would go down into the tunnels, looking for Daniel, but never find him. Some say he finally found whatever was speaking to him, others say that he simply ran off in the night.
