Carlheim Manor

Over the years, many strange and horrific events have taken place in the rooms of the Carlheim Manor and beneath its foundation among the large array of caverns, and frigid underground lake.  For over 100 years The Carvers have lived below the Paxton Manor, deep in the caverns, this year they have decided that they want to return to Paxton Manor and have taken it over!

Carnival of Souls

The basement of Carlheim Manor, formerly, the “Haunted Well of Souls,” is now called, “Carnival of Souls”. The Carver Carnival Family has come back to town to terrorize anyone willing to enter the basement. Think crazed killer clowns and rancid cotton candy in twisted underground carnival carnage.
