Griffin, a wizard from the mansion who was
many years ago kicked out for being too “fo-
cused” has been working on his experiments
under Nane. He has finally opened a portal
to allow spider-like-creatures from a differ-
ent universe to enter, however, the creatures
are being driven mad by the new world; they
can’t seem to exist within it for long without
resorting to a primordial mind-set. If Griffen
is left alive, he will fix his portal after seven
days, allowing the creatures to enter the
world without being driven mad.
