    **This story starter is a little different. It contains the setting only. You provide the character(s) and the rest of the story.**

    The banshee whispers echo through the trees at the road's edge, mesmerizing and terrifying those whose ears they caress. The bent and twisted trees, hulls of their former glory days, are alive as the wind bends and sways them to its will. It carries with it the scent of sulfur, swamp gas, decay.

    The moonless night seems unending. This broken road, whose gravel crunches under foot with each step, lends to mind thoughts of tiny bones being mercilessly crushed with each footstep. It meanders, this road. Lends the traveler a brief glimmer of hope for reprieve when it seems safety may be just around the corner, only to crush those dreams as delusions of a shattered mind.

    This god-forsaken road and this utterly evil night, will the torment ever end?
