Since 1864—The Bateman Hotel. A place where guests can relax and conjure the days of refined luxury, romantic evenings and glittering nights. The new owner is hosting a soiree in honor of the anniversary of the hotel’s reopening a year ago. If you decide to make a reservation for an overnight stay after the party, there are a few guest rooms to avoid due to reports of ill-spirited apparitions, steamy pockets of strange mist causing feelings of dread, sudden drops of temperature, and terrifying voices that echo in the corridors during the wee hours of the morning. Other than that, the old hotel is once again becoming the place to be in the town of Wraith’s Cove. The infamous Quinn Bloom is on the VIP guest list and will bring a rare doll collection to the hotel - but don't let the dolls bother you - the rumors about them may not even be true. You wouldn’t miss this party for the world. This is where your story begins.
